Between Uhud and Ahzab: The second Badr, Banu Mustaliq, Muraisi’, Al-Ifk. Battle of Ahzab – Part I
Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
so today inshallah we're going to have a fairly long class, inshallah,
my aim is to complete zero by the end of this month. inshallah, because in the month of Ramadan, we want to lighten the burden from you, right. And it's better if we complete Syrah before Ramadan so that in Ramadan, you don't have any extra subjects, right? And if we give a big gap in you know with the month of Ramadan, then that's not much fun. Meaning if you're in the flow of studying Sierra and then a whole gap of one and a half month or so, I think that's a little too much. Would you agree with me? Okay. So you're in it with me and
my mother who want to slowly are a lot of swelling and Kadeem and my birth father was a biller him in a SharePoint logy Miss Miller, who recommended for him. I wish he were Sidley MD. Millis any of the Hokulea.
So in our previous class, we ended with the expulsion of the second Jewish tribe from Medina, which tribe was that the banana lead now, after the expulsion of the banana leaf from Edina, and by the way, which month was that in the expulsion of the lead,
in which year, fourth year after digital, and some say it happened in rural Iowa? Some say it happened in Chihuahua, there is difference of opinion, but for sure it happened in the fourth year after Hitler. Now, if you go back to the Battle of remember that Abu Sufyan when he was leaving, he came to the mountain where the Muslims were right. And he called out to ask if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was alive if Albacore was alive if or modolo on who was alive and the whole conversation took place between him and remodel de la hora, no. So at the end of his conversation, he also said that we will meet again at budget next year. So he said that we will meet at butter Why
bother? because that is where the Muslims had defeated them. So I was a fan is basically saying we'll meet at butter so that we can defeat you know. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the Muslims to say yes, it is an appointment for both of us. So now after one year, from but in the month of charbon, fourth year after hijra, the prophets of Allah said and made his way to Brother, alright, and with him were 1500 companions. So how many companions were there? 700, right, because 301 Africa on the left, and now at this time, how many companions went with him 1500. Now the Prophet sallallahu Sallam reached by that and he remained there for eight days, waiting for a
booster fan for the people of Makkah to arrive. But they did not show up. The fact is that the mccanns did leave Makkah. All right, they prepared an army, they got ready, they were making their way to bother with 2000 warriors under Abu sufian. But what happened as soon as they got out of Mecca, and they reached the spring of magenta, All right, here, I will Sofia and he said to his companions, that war should be at a time when there is greenery when there's food, your animals can graze. And you also have milk to drink. In other words, you've had good food, you have strength, you have the energy to fight. But since this year has been a year of drought, there is lack of water,
lack of food, we don't really have much strength. So I'm going back and it's up to you. If you want to come back with me, come back with me. And if you want to go fight, go fight. Now imagine if the leader is saying I'm going back who's gonna go forward? Nobody's going to. So what happened? Everybody went back to Makkah, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with the Muslims 1500 Muslims he waited at, but for eight days, the mccanns did not show up. So what happened? It is said that again, the passing caravans, the Muslims, they traded with them, and they made a profit. And it handled a lot they returned home safe and successful. Now this incident, it established the strength and
determination of the Muslims, right? Because it made it clear to everybody that even though Muslim suffered a huge loss at the Battle of Ohio.
They are true to their word, they're committed. And their numbers just keep growing. They just keep increasing. And now the Muslims are going back, alright, even though they're greater in number, but they lack that determination, that strength and the Muslims, they have that strength and determination. So everyone learned this in in Arabia, that Muslims are not going to accept defeat.
Even if they suffer, they will get up again. And the status is a very big lesson a very beautiful lesson that even though we have suffered loss and pain in the past, that is the best we have to worry about. Now, what can I do right now what is within my capacity right now? Because sometimes we remain stuck in our best
Just because I lost an argument with this individual or I took this exam and I never passed, I don't think I can do this again, I don't think I can try again. But look at the determination of the Muslims, they suffered a huge loss of or hurt and now true to their word. They're making their way to abundance, and the loss of penalty protected them. Now, soon after this, what happened in the month of shadowbanned, for a year after digital was better the second All right. And in this time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also learned that the lot of fan were preparing to fight the Muslims. All right, who were the lotto fan, or the fan tribe was in the north of Arabia. So you're looking at
remember the map that I showed you earlier, the legend in the Middle Ages on the left, right, and in the north, is where the lotto fan used to live, alright. And the water fan tribe was was very different. It was a huge tribe. And they were also very different. They weren't very civilized, they would fight a lot. Suffice to say they weren't very civilized. So anyway, at the profits on the line of Salaam, when he learned about the hotel fund, preparing to attack Medina, he gathered together 700 Sahaba. Alright, and the plan was to march all the way to hold the fan, and basically cast terror into the hearts of the people of all the fans. So they don't even dare come towards Medina,
because of the Muslims are marching all the way to the fan. What message are they giving you all the fun? We're ready to fight you. Right, we're ready to fight you. So what happened? When the Muslims reached a lot of fans, they camped outside, all right, obviously, before their population. And when the water fan learned about the Muslims approaching, they fled. All right, they fled and they and they took shelter in mountains. So the prophets on line is Allah. He remained there in that camp for several days, and then eventually the Muslims, they returned back to Medina. All right. So there was no battle. Was there a battle? There was no battle? The objective was basically to cast terror into
the hearts of who?
of who? The lotto fan. All right. Now this expedition is known as lazada. That to report Okay, what was what that will report. Now, some say that this expedition took place after the Battle of ours up and some say that this took place before the Battle of arsa.
Now, that's what that record, as well as the following expedition, which was, was was more
or less what Burnham was Pollak. Alright, in some books, you will find these incidents before Amazon. And in the book that you have, you will find it after.
All right, there is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars, both both sides are very strong. We're just going to look at it as it happened before the Battle of Isaiah. Now, let's apply that to the thought. Remember that there was no actual battle. But on the return journey to Medina, several things happened. First of all, we learned that selectel hope was revealed. This is once a lot of hope was revealed. I remember that sort of the mysap. When was it revealed?
The Battle of
all right, meaning it was revealed in the early part, when the battles were going on, because remember, sort of the Messiah deals with inheritance as well. So she had that. And because of that reason, remember it had 70 people died now 70 people have died, they've left behind some property, how to distribute that. All right. And where is what Atul have mentioned? In which Surah Surah Nisa, right. So it is that that swaddle hope was revealed on the return journey from was what that recall. Also, we learned that while the Muslims had camped outside what the fan what happened was that in the nighttime when the Muslims were camped outside of the fan, do Sahaba were appointed to guard the
Muslim army. One was inherited and the other was on Saudi. And I'm sure you've heard of this incident. Now what happened with these two that the unsavoury he said to them? Oh, how did you arrest first? I'll watch I'll be the watch guard. You take some sleep. So what happened to Mahajan and decided that it was a Melbourne Yes, it will be a lot more on who he slept. He fell asleep and his companion. He stood up, he was watching. And then he said, I might as well pray. So he started his night prayer. And when he started his night prayer, what happened? One of the hotel phonies saw him. And so he shot an arrow at him. He shot an arrow at him. The Ansari man he just took the air
out, and he continued praying. And now what happened a lot of funny man kept shooting arrows at him one after the other. And this unsightly man did not break his prayer until he felt he was going to faint. So what happened? Then he woke
up and our ma when he saw the state of his companion that he's bleeding, and he's almost fainting, and why didn't you wake me up sooner? He said I wanted to complete
My father, I wanted to complete my site but I couldn't because of this while the arrows now remember that there is a hadith in a sincerity Sahaja tells us that three kinds of eyes will not even see the fire of hell. Imagine they will not even see the fire of hell. Which ones are they? One is the AI that stays awake, guarding FISA belynda.
All right, meaning the eyes of the person who is awake at night. All right. And what is he doing guarding? He's putting his life in danger. He's sacrificing his sleep. He's staying awake in order to guard those who are feasibility. So, these eyes will not even see the fire of hell.
Another is those eyes which are reduced from seeing what is unlawful, you know, verbal bustle lowering the gaze. So those eyes which are lowered, reduced, all right, why, in order to not see that which is unlawful, because you know that the first glance is forgiven, because that is unintentional. But if a person continues to look, then he is sinful. So if something comes in front of a person, and he realizes this is wrong, and he looks away, immediately, doesn't even allow him himself one more second, to look at that how long object then those eyes also will not even see the fire of hell. And the third is that which cries genuinely from the fear of a loss.
May Allah make us amongst us? In a report in Sahih Bukhari we learned that when you go to our job it is in the book of will do that and an obeah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can if he was what he that recording for Romeo Rajaram be salmon that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in the hospital of that record, and a man was struck with an arrow. Fernanda who demo Baraka was sajida. And his blood was flowing basically. But the man continued his prayer, he did his record and his suit when Madoff he saw it and he continued in his prayer, and Mr. Bahari mentioned this, to prove that if during your prayer, you are bleeding, all right from a wound, then that does not nullify your prayer. Because
this is a hobby he continued to pray.
Anyway, one more incident happened that when the Muslims were returning to Medina, there was hot, and when they camped, everybody found you know, some tree or someplace where they could find shade and, and rest in and everybody was so tired that immediately they fell asleep. Even the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was resting. Now what happened? Imagine the entire army is sleeping, quiet still. Now a Bedouin man happens to pass by. And when he sees the entire army sleeping, he finds the tent of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, or rather, he finds where the prophets Allah was resting under a tree, and he goes to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam grabs his sword. And he says, and basically the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam woke up at that time. All right, and this man, he said to the Prophet, sallAllahu wasallam Aren't you scared of me?
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, No. So calmly, he said, No. Now this frightened the men that I thought everybody was sleeping, who's here that I didn't see. Why are you saying that? You're not afraid of me? Which guards do you have? Who's here that I do not see. So the man said, who will protect you from me? Meaning you have no guards. You have no defense right now who's going to save you from me? And the prophets of Allah isms that Allah so the man he got so frightened at this, that literally the sword fell from his hand, and then the prophets, Allah cinematic, the sword and he said, Now who will save you from me? So that man, he said to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, be the
better of the two who took the sword, meaning show mercy to me. So the profit or loss and I'm asking, would you accept Islam? He said, No. However, I will not fight you. I promise that I will never fight you. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam let him go.
Now as Muslims are drawing closer to Medina, the journey was long, because remember that a lot of fun are all the way up north. Right? The journey was long, and everybody was writing their camel or taking turns on their horses. And the prophets, Allah said, have noticed that at the back of the army was one person who was really far behind. So the prophets on a lot of them asked Who is that? And he found out that it was jab,
jab it even Abdullah.
Now, there's a famous hadith of Javelin or the Longhorn. If you open any book of Hadees. As soon as you start learning about the Hata will do Masjid Salah, you learn about the Hadees objeto de la hora. And this is when this incident occurred. And there's so many beautiful lessons that we learned from this hadith. Especially we learn about the care
actor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, now jameelah below or anywhere. He said that this is a hadith from Buhari that I was with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Alaska, and this was what I recall. And my camel was slow and exhausted. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to me and said, Oh, jabot I said, Yes. He said, What is the matter with you? meeting? How come you're all the way at the back? And he also looked really worried. So Java low or no, he said that my camel is slow and tired. So I am left behind all the way at the back. And another version, we learned that jab it alone, and he said that the prophets have lots of them asked him, Why are you so sad? And so he
explained that his father had died at the Battle of Ohio. And when was heard before this expedition, right, and this is the reason why many scholars say that that riccar happened before.
All right, because Jabara de la Barnhill, his father had died recently. All right.
And he said that my father died leaving behind a big loan. And I have seven sisters.
And who aren't who at this time was very young, he was you could say a teenager. Right?
And all his you know, worries and his grief, they were piling up on him. And on top of that, he was on an old slow camel. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he got down from his camel. He said, Bismillah, and he poked the camel of jabot with his stick. And when he did that, then he told you a bit of low or no, okay, ride your camel no javis at that I wrote the camel. And it became so fast that I had to hold it from going ahead of the messenger of a lesson logger.
Meaning it became one of the fastest camels.
I imagine, here the profits of a lot of them took notice of the fact that Java is all the way at the back. He's young, he's worried. He looks stressed out. Why is he like that? So he asks him about his problems, and he helps him and now the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is helping him find a solution. All right, to his worries, that okay, the loan is something that you can't really take care of immediately. Likewise, your Seven Sisters, you can't exactly get married all at the same time. Right? You can't take care of this immediately. But what you can do is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him, Have you gotten married?
And Jarvis said, Yes. Why is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asking him? Have you gotten married?
Why isn't that a very personal matter?
Why is the Prophet sallallahu asking him because what his question basically he's suggesting to him, you should get married.
Right? Why is he bringing his attention to this marriage? When he has a huge loan to take care of and he has seven sisters a huge responsibility. For many people in this position. Marriage is the last thing to worry about. And the prophets of Allah Islam is saying, begin solving your problems with start with marriage. That if you were to get married and she would help him with his sisters wild
that marriage when a person gets married for the right reason, then he has the help that Allah subhanaw taala should help him financially help. He has the right that Allah should help him.
So inshallah increase blessings. A wife is a source of emotional support, comfort for a man in the Quran we learn that women iottie and Haleakala comin unphysical as virgin Lita, schooner, LA, right, you find sukoon were Jara la Vina Kumar, data, Rama, there is love and mercy. So, the prophets are a lot of time is helping him find a solution to his problems, how by suggesting the first of all jabesh should get married, because that will bring him emotional support, comfort that he that he needs at this time, he needs a companion. So what happened? Who and Who said that? Yes, I did get married actually. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him, is she young or older? And he said, I
married an older woman, meaning not very young. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Why didn't you marry a young woman? Because then she would play with you and you would play with him? Right? Meaning, you know, you would have fun, right? A friend a companion. He's basically cheering up jabiru de la hora, and who, so who aren't who said that I have sisters that are younger than age and I wanted to marry someone who could look after them, you know, comb their hair. And in another version, we learned that he basically said that I didn't want another little girl to look after.
He wanted someone who was responsible enough mature enough.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam agreed and he said that you have done right
now, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he asked jabya Rotolo on who sell this gamble to me. And jivin you know, his capital just got fixed. It's
Writing so well and he says No way. The prophets Allah Allah says that Salah to me, Jabba said no, no, no. And again when the prophets are the loudest and as Javid understood that the prophets of the Muslim is not joking, he's serious. So he said he also did not take it for free. I mean, how can I sell it to you take it for free? The profits are realized and said no, sell it to me. So Java said, How much will you buy it for? The prophets that allows him said when he's joking with him, all right, because when they don't basically means nothing, okay, for a camel, it's nothing. So Java, although Warren has said No way, the prophets that allows and said okay, to the three that have
known, so this conversation kept going on until the profits of the losses offered 40 then home and jabiru at the lower end, who said 40 and then JV rollover and who said, let me write it back to Medina. When we get to Medina, then inshallah I'll give you the camel and you give me the money and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Okay, now joglo aren't who he's on his camel. camel is writing fast the prophets of the laws and reminded him of his wife. And now he's, you know, getting ahead of the army, you know, he's rushing to get home. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advised him that when you get to Medina, don't just go straight home, don't go straight home. And you know all of the
studies about that when a person arrives in the middle of the night, first of all, he should not go in the middle of the night. And when he arrives, he should go to the masjid first. So that the family can prepare. Right The woman who has messy hair can fix her hair, right meaning she can dress up that her husband has arrived. So this is when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave these instructions. Now what happened? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam he reached Medina early, alright and Joe Blow on who reached Medina a little bit after him. Now what happened the following the GI Bill to the Warren who he went to the masjid with his camel, and he said to the Prophet sallallahu
sallam, I have the camel for you the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Did you just come to the masjid? He said, Yeah, so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, First go pray, and then we'll talk business. Alright, so this is where we learned that when a person goes to the masjid, the first thing that he should do is pray to God.
So who aren't who he went, he prayed to the cart. And then he came to the prophets of Allah sentiment. He said, Here's your camel. And basically he went, Okay, can I have the money? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told Bilaal of the low on who to bring the money, and it was equal to one rupee of gold. So will Allah do thou art who he brought the money, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave him gave jab it a little horn with the money and when he gave him the money, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, a theremin. Well, jurmala laka the price and the camel are both for you.
Both are for you.
And why did you sue the loss? It allowed us to do that to him. He wanted to give him right, he wanted to give him some money to help him out with his loan. But at the same time, he didn't want Java to feel like embarrassed, right? That he was being given charity by the prophets of Allah. So what happened, the prophets of the laws and about the camel from him, right, he gave him the price. And then he gifted him the camel as well. He gifted him the camel, and this entire conversation that happened in the journey. The whole point of that was to relax jabot cheer him up, teach him how to bargain because now there was a huge responsibility on his shoulders, right? So he needed to learn
how to buy and sell how to strike a good deal. So the profits that allows them is training him in that direction. And the profits are the loudest and I'm also taught him here, how he should find comfort and being with his wife, even though she may be very young. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also gave him a son of over here, a financial gift.
I mean, you see how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was concerned about every companion of his right. And we learned that how he made have settled the lover and has a noble dilemma on her own Salah All three were who widows, and now he's taking care of young job. He's advising him.
And this really, you know, shows the character of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, in the month of Ramadan, so in the month of Siobhan, according to some of this expedition took place and now fast forward to the month of Ramadan. All right, in the month of Ramadan, Allah subhanaw taala blessed Fatima and Ali with a son,
the first grandson of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and when he was born, the prophets of the license actually show me my son, in Bring him to me, I want to see him. So I need to learn who brought the baby to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Prophet asked him What's his name? And Id though and who said How? What does he mean? War? Why do you think he gave him that name?
Huh? Okay. He was born during war.
Time with Dina every year every few months there was war. All right, and Alia Lauren who he was a warrior himself.
So you can see he wanted the same from his son. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him, No, he is handsome, beautiful, that is his name. And then the following year 11 months later when his next son was born, I love that article just slightly changed the name Hasson into her same and he named his younger son Hussein, which basically means little hesson.
Now, the next main incident was the less well off more or as well Bhanu masala. both terms are used to refer to the same event. The tribe was biannual static, and the location was mores here. All right, would I see it basically was a pond,
not a lake, because in the middle of the desert, you don't have lakes, but a place where water would collect rainwater, or something like that it would collect and this area was known as mudassir. So the tribe that lived here was known as Bonomo. starlock. Right, and the area was called mudassir.
And this area was located between Makkah and Medina.
So where is it in the south of Medina, north of Makkah.
Now, the battle masala, they were close allies of the people of Makkah.
All right. And they were their allies since the time of the monopoly. They had made alliances with the people of Makkah. With through Abdulmutallab, so it's quite old, this alliance. All right.
And the bundle Masonic, they were no ordinary tribe. All right. First of all, they had alliances with the kadesh with the people of NACA, and secondly, they had the idol manette.
Remember, but then when she came, they had certain major idols right, lat Rosa manette. And these are mentioned in the Quran insert of legend. All right, so the idle minute it was with the animal study. It was in Mercier.
All right. So you can imagine that this was also a busy place, people would come in order to dedicate their, you know, in order to offer their sacrifices and all to this idle. And also, because they were close friends with the people of Makkah, the people of Makkah, you know, they found this, basically, safety zone. All right, closer to Medina, you understand? Because if they went out of Mecca, you know, on the trade route, the Muslims could come and fight them. All right. But because of the presence of animals, they were safe until they reach the animals today beyond but almost done in the area between venomous Pollock and Medina, that that was the danger zone for the machine of
All right. And also at the Battle of remember that the Bonomo stallion had helped the machico
they had helped them machico many of their people participated in the Battle of Ohio, they financially helped the people of Makkah in the Battle of art of overhead. And now, the bundle was stuck. We're preparing to launch and offensive against the Muslims in Medina.
Now, when the Prophet sallallaahu heard about this, you notice how so many people were planning to attack Medina, one after the other. And the prophets of Allah Islam is so proactive he finds out, right. And then when he confirms the news, he he's so productive he goes before the enemy can come. Either cast her into their heart or fight them and break their power so they don't have the strength to come and fight the Muslims. Hmm. So here what happened the prophets of Allah Islam sent a particular companion by the name of Breda odilo, to confirm the rumor, so but I thought I'll dillo on who he went to. The bedroom was started pretending to be a Bedouin. And he went and spoke to the
chief and he said, that look, I have heard that you are planning to attack Medina, if you are Please let me come with you. So that I can also have a share of the booty.
All right, because at that time, if anybody wanted to make quick money, what would they do? Join someone who was going to read another tribe. All right. So when you read another tribe, you take whatever you can you catch two people, you get two slaves, you get somebody who's horse, whatever you you get a free horse. So you understand what I did not that I want and whose trick he said that I have heard that you are planning to attack Medina? If so, let me join you so that I can also get a share of booty I need money.
So the leader he said, Sure.
What did that mean?
That they are going to attack Medina. So but I don't, I don't I know. He pretended to stay with them. All right in the night, and as soon as night fell, he ran off to Medina. He told the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the next morning, the prophets Allah
And it took 700 Muslims with him. And they went straight to the new Muslims. And they attacked and when they attacked What happened? Because the people were not expecting it. All right. They were not prepared. And it was early morning. They were not prepared. And it is said that the men basically they fled, because it's easy for them to run away, right? So the man of the button was stolen, they fled even their leader. All right, who was left behind? children, women, old, sick, or some, you know, some men they got left behind. And what else did they leave behind? All of their camels, their sheep, everything. So there were very few casualties. All right. But what happened? 1000 people were
taken as captives. All right. And it is said that there were over 2000 camels, 5000 sheep. Now all of this is brought back to Medina. So this was a massive victory for the Muslims with very minimal effort, and hardly any fighting. Now, very important events happened after this victory.
First of all, we learned that the captives, the 1000 captives, they were divided amongst the people. All right, because remember that, at that time, the custom was that prisoners of war? What happens to them? There were no jails. All right. They didn't have such infrastructure where they could support people in, in captivity. I mean, they barely had food themselves to eat, how could they provide three meals a day to prisoners? All right. So remember that earlier also, at the Battle of budded, when the capitals were brought in, what was done with them, they were kept in the houses of the Muslims, right? Even the prophets of Allah sent him head so hailed as a captive, right? So but
this time, what was done that the captains were distributed and the custom at that time was that captive? Basically, he's a slave. All right. Now this happened.
The daughter of the chief,
her name was Julia. She was a princess.
She fell in the hands of a particular companion. sabitha de la hora. No. But she said to him that look, I'm a princess, I don't want to live as a slave. All right, let me buy my freedom from you. He said, Sure, no problem. Because this is something that Muslims are told in order to know, we learned that if there is a slave who wishes to buy his freedom for cattle, right? Then make the ketubah with them, meaning make the contract with them, let them buy their freedom, and what are to whom emanuela. Hola, de Atacama, give them from the wealth that Allah has given you. Meaning the Masters told you all to financially help the slave by his freedom, meaning waiver of some of the some of the
cost, right? So some of the payment, and other Muslims are encouraged that you help that slave by the freedom.
So what happened, SAVVIS fell below and who he agreed. So Julia, she went straight to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because he was the leader. So she went straight to him, and she said that I want to buy my freedom, please help me.
Now what happened? Here, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, offered Julia, something which completely changed the fate of the entire tribe of animals. That's
what happened because the prophets that allows him knew who Julia was, she was the princess, the daughter of the chief of staff, who are the most stylish allies of Quraysh. They're wealthy, they have the item and that they have a very good reputation. They're well respected. Julia is no ordinary woman. So the prophets have a lot of them said, How about you marry me? And your mother would be your freedom, meaning I will pay for your freedom. All right, I will pay Sabbath. Once you're free. You marry me.
He gave her the choice. He didn't force it. Nothing. He gave her the choice. Julia said, Sure.
Because she's a princess, right? Who's the Prophet sallallahu Sallam?
Qureshi, and also a leader situada thinks my father he's abandoned me. God knows if he's gonna come or not. Where are my people? I don't know. They just left us. They just ran leaving us all behind ticking. Imagine how angry the women are with their men. This is pure betrayal, right that you run off, leaving us behind? So she says Who knows if they're coming or not. I have a I have a good offer. He's the leader. He's a noble men. Right? And now she's in Medina. She's looking at how the Muslims are. She asks that if she can purchase a freedom. sabbat says For sure, no problem. Right. And she thinks it's a very good offer. So she says Sure. She has a home
She gets married. She has a well respected position in Medina if she gets married to the prophets on a lot is on them. All right. So what happened? The prophets of Allah Islam married her. Now when he married her, her blood relatives are in the houses of the Muslims as slaves.
So what happened some Sahaba. They said this is not right. The in laws of Rasulullah sallallahu our slaves, no way. set them free. So all of the animals that were set free,
all were set free because of the prophets of the Lawson's marriage to do a lot more now. Now what happened after a couple of days, the men have been Muslim, they realize our women, our children are in Medina, you know, this is not right, we should go get them back, because it's a huge disgrace for them. It does. It doesn't fit an Arab man that his wife has taken us captive, his daughter is taking this captive. So after a few days, the chief had his and his men, they come to Medina in order to talk to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam strike some deal with them to let the captives go to let the people go. But when he comes, he sees everything is different to me now where people are free,
what's going on? And he goes to the property laws and I'm asking if he will let his daughter go to
the province that a lot of them said ask her. It's her choice if she wants to go with you. Go ahead. So basically the province of Lawson is giving you a double Omar and her the right to divorce.
If she wants,
what happened to Julia rather low on her, she said, No, I'm staying here. I'm not going anywhere.
So her is he was so affected by this because now he's interacting with the Muslims. He's interacting with the prophets of Allah, Allah. He's looking at his own daughter, how happy she is over here. She was so affected by this. He embraced Islam.
When he embraced Islam, because he was the chief, what happened to all the people of animals stehlik. They also embraced Islam.
When they embraced Islam,
the prophet SAW a lot of snow appointed had it as the chief of his people again. All right, he was the chief again, all the people are free. All their wealth is returned to them.
And they go home.
They go home.
Everything goes back to normal. What's the difference now, before they were on CIC, now they're upon Islam, before they were enemies of the Muslims. Now they are friends with the Muslims before they were allies of the kodesh. Now they're no longer allies of the Kurdish How did this happen? What was it that shifted the entire thing?
Marriage Did you radiate over the horn?
Hmm. Now we see the Hickman, behind the marriages of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
Because many, many Muslims even find it difficult to accept Why did profits or loss in America so many women, there was a reason?
There was a reason because with every marriage, he helped the Muslims. Every marriage was a cause of spreading strengthening Islam. There was Heckman behind that and you situated a little more on her. He gave her the choice if you wish you marry me. And later on when her father came if you wish you can go but both times what does he choose?
The same thing companionship with but also Allah sallallahu wasallam.
Now, one other thing happened when the Muslims returned from the normal static
and what was that that the hypocrisy of the moon after Kuhn was exposed, it was revealed it became very very clear how it is said that a small fight broke out between an inside of us and a Mohajer us a small fight and argument and the anxiety boy he said yeah OnStar helped me and the wiser boy said Yamaha didn't help me. So you see what's happening over here.
They're calling their own people All right. Now, when this happened the prophets of Allah said um he came and he basically discouraged as a habit. He said that this is this is something that that is foul that this is from the Jamelia leave this this is not good.
So immediately the inside the Mahajan, they, they calm down and they resolve the situation, however, of the Logan obey, when he heard about this, he was, on the one hand, very happy that finally the unsought had looked at themselves differently. You know that they had separated themselves from the Mahajan. He was happy with this division.
And at the same time, he was very angry. Why was he angry that the situation got resolved so quickly.
right he wanted this conflict between the Muslims because he was not happy with everybody accepting the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He was not happy with the Mahajan coming into Medina.
You know how some people have a problem with immigration? Right? Or the love and obey was that man in Medina who had a huge problem with immigration? He didn't want any outsiders in Medina. He said they're a financial burden on us. You know, they have taken our lands and they we have shared our wealth with them. They're a big burden on us, we have to get rid of them. So when he learned about this incident, he thought, great, but why did this get resolved so quickly? So basically, in his anger, he said certain things about the Prophet sallallahu, about the Mahajan, which were very, very disrespectful and there's no need to repeat them over here. But anyway, one young companions aid
when he heard that conversation and he went to the profits of a lot of them and informed him that he had a sutala This is what our beloved obey was saying about you. This is what he was saying about the Mojave rune. Now the prophets Allah loves him he called our Bolivian obey, and he asked him Did you say this? Abdullah bin obey refused point blank said No way. I didn't say this. He was lying. And he began swearing out by Allah by Allah. I didn't say this.
And what happened? Zevon accom was really sad, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam accepted the word of the love and obey. So now who looked like a liar zaban erco and he was a young child. All right. Now what happened? Allah subhanaw taala revealed pseudotumor nephew Kuhn. At this occasion on the return journey to Medina, Soloman African was revealed. Elijah a kimono if you come to Nashville do in Atlanta rasulillah Well, la we are in Nicola rasuluh, La Jolla shadow in nomina, Filipina la caribou, Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are liars it the huddle a man whom Jonathan, they have taken their orbs as a shield. Because of the love and obey kept swearing odds by Allah by Allah
by Allah you know, he kept swearing holds again and again. So when when when a person is swearing what's in front of you, how are you meant to reject their word? You have to accept it right? So these I add they exposed are the love and obey. All right now are the loving obey God even more angry,
even more angry that now Quran is being revealed against me, exposing me. So what happened of the love and obey he said that when we go to Medina, then we'll see what happens. The one who has more is a will expel the one who has the law. The one with more honor will expel the one who is with less honor.
So basically he's saying I am more honorable. When we go to Medina, I will make sure that I expel Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam from Medina. This is basically what he was saying. And Allah revealed an insult on one African, that Jaco lunella era journey in El Medina at local regional tourism in hell, as well.
As most parents are quoted the exact statement of the love and obey.
Now what happened, a lot of the law on who he offered the profits of the Law Center, allow me, allow me, just order me and I will take care of this. I'll finish him off because of the love and obey me hypocrisy was evident. If Allah is revealing, I asked about what are the love and obey is doing what he's saying? There's no doubt about his hypocrisy, but are the loving obeyed this whole time? He's pretending to be a Muslim? And you see, the interesting thing is that nobody went on this expedition.
Why? Because the journey was short, victory was guaranteed. Booty was huge. This is why he went and this is actually mentioned in the Quran. That if the journey is short, victory is guaranteed gains are more than they will come along with you happily, but wherever there are risks, their dangers, they come with excuses, that we cannot come. So anyway, the prophets that allows him did not allow our middle to lower and what that no, you don't do anything like that. But the son of the Levin obey. His name was also Abdullah.
All right. He went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he said that if you would like my father to be executed, then let me do it.
Because I don't think I can see another man walking around Medina who has killed my father. Basically, what he's saying is that I'm afraid that this relationship of blood that I have with my father that will cause me to become angry,
but it's the right thing to do. My father should be punished because of what he has done. So if you are going to order anybody to assassinate him, order me, so that I cannot take revenge from anybody.
This is how sincere this hobby was. And the profits of a lot of them said to him, No, you're done.
is to be a good son and companion to him. So Abdullah returned, and he basically went in the entrance of Medina where the army was coming in to Medina from he went and stood there with his sword
uncovered, ready to strike. And when his father or the love innovative approach, he said, you cannot enter until the one with honor allows you to enter.
So he did not let his father enter Medina and our beloved and obey had to wait until permission was sought from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he allowed our beloved obey and then after love and obey entered Medina.
Now this entire incident, what happened, it exposed the reality of of the living up.
Up until this point, there were many Muslims, who were with the love and obey who were influenced by him who got affected by his words,
who would listen to him. But when this incident happened, the reality of Abdullah bin obey was exposed and so many of his supporters abandoned him.
Many of the people who were influenced by the love and obey now what happened, they left him and they became sincere believers.
So you see what happened. And this is the reason why the prophets Allah Lawson did not allow that are delivering a baby killed, because if he had him killed, then what would happen the unsought his blood relatives would become angry.
Right, they will become even more upset. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was so calm, and he let the things unfold themselves. And Subhan Allah did come about. Now one more thing that happened, that our beloved whenever you can imagine how angry he was from inside, what did he want to do? He wanted to take revenge, to get even with the prophets of Allah is Allah. So what happened when the Muslims reached Medina soon they saw that a companion by the name of one or below on who? He is coming towards Medina, he's leading his camel, and on his camel is the wife of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is Chateau de la Mourinho.
All right. Now when our beloved obey saw them approaching, he said,
something bad has happened here. So in other words, he's saying that this was a plan of supplying and Ayesha gnaraloo Bella, they stayed behind deliberately. They did something wrong, they did something wrong. And now they're coming into Medina pretending that they got late.
He's accusing someone and I should have the lower honor of Xena. And this is known as if the lie the lie. And in sort of the news Allah subhanaw taala revealed several ayat about this incident that in a Latina Jia will bill if key Ross bottom income, ladder Sabu shadow Lacan Balu hydralic I don't think it'd be bad for you, it's actually good for you because much good came about from this one lady to Allah kibou la who are that one? I'll leave that the one who took the greater share of it for him is a great painful punishment. Right? And who was that who took the greater share of this, Abdullah bin away because he started this. What happened was, this hadith has mentioned in great
detail I should have blow on herself has reported this incident, in which he says that whenever the Prophet sallallahu Sallam intended to go on any journey, he would cast lots between his wives. Right, to be fair with them. So what happened on this journey, I should have the low bar and it was her chance that she went along with the profits on a lot of setup. But what happened that she said, when the Muslims were camped on the return journey, they had stopped. It was announced that we're going to leave pretty soon so I should have little or no, she said that I went to use the bathroom. And she said When she returned to her camel, she realized that her necklace was missing. She had
lost her necklace. So she went looking for her necklace. Right? And when she came back, they were gone. Everybody was gone. So I should have the lower on her said that realizing that they had left she she went when she didn't see them in the distance. She just stayed exactly where she was because she realized that eventually they will figure out that she's missing and they will come to look for her. So when they will come to look for they'll find her here. So she stayed there and she said waiting she fell asleep. Now so final below aren't who his job was to stay behind the Muslim army a day or so. Alright, or a few hours at least. And you know, go the same route to make sure that in
case something was left something was forgotten. He would bring it alright. So what happened when he came he saw somebody sleeping and he recognized I should have lower and he said in earlier he were in a lady Roger and I shall deliver on her. She said that is all I heard from him. She
Got up. He brought his camels. She sat on the camel and she said the whole journey. He didn't say a word to me. The whole journey he didn't say even a single word. She said when she got to Medina, she didn't know that she didn't know about what are the love and obey had said, All right. And when she reached Medina, she fell ill.
And she was sick for an entire month. And she said this whole month, nobody ever told me what happened. But the prophets Allah sent me his he was distant, his behavior was different. He was kind of quiet. So I should have the love on her. She didn't know what to make of it. And one night, she went to use the bathroom with a particular friend or miss law. And when they were coming, or miss that tripped over something, and in her anger, she said, may Mr. Harvey ruined. So she's basically cursing her son. So I showed up lower and I looked at her surprise, why are you cursing your son? You know, he participated at butter. You know, if you're angry at him, for some reason, realize the
fact that he was at butter. He's unguided. So who Mr. said, Don't you know what's going on? I said, No, I don't know what's going on. So then she told I showed the lower in her about the lie the slander that our beloved obey had started. And that her son Mr. was also one of the people who was saying that yes, I had done something wrong.
It wasn't just Mr. hetal della horn, who it was also hung up in Jacksonville, the lohana the sister of Zane have been Jewish. All right. And it was also has said, When Sabbath Ludlow arnhold, the point of the prophets of Allah, these three people, they also sided with the slander. All right, meaning they said that, yes, this happened, they accused, I shall blow and have the wrong they basically felt, you know, they got affected by the propaganda of our beloved movie. And, you know, we think the Sahaba were like super human beings and perfect human beings. They had imperfections also they made mistakes. So when I showed the LaWanda found out, she said, she wept and wept and
wept. And she asked the prophets on laws that him to allow her to go to her parents house. She didn't talk to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about this, she went to her parents house and asked her mother, Is this true? And when her mother confirmed, she said, she wept the whole night. It's like her tears would not stop.
And then she said that one woman from the inside came and she wept with her. And I show wept and she's weeping. Both of them are crying together. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, and he said to Isaiah, that look, if something wrong has been done, then seek forgiveness from Allah. Allah is forgiving. And if you haven't done anything wrong than a level, you know, reveal your innocence, then you don't need to worry.
And I shadowed the low earner. She said to her mother say something or father say something? No, we can't say anything. So I shared the love on her. She said that you have heard so much about this propaganda, that if I were to say that I am innocent, you're not going to believe me.
And if I were to say that I am guilty, which I am not, you would believe me.
So I am just going to say, well LaHood mastan Allah Merciful, Sovereign Jamil beautiful patience will law McDonald Amato Sivan, and I should have known that this thing was very young and she's gotten called. Okay, so what happened? At that time the prophets Eliza and received Revelation the ayah, from Surah. to note about the incident of Esquire revealed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to Arusha, good news, and your innocence has been revealed. Her mother said, I shall thank the profits or losses, and she said, No, I'm not thanking him. I'm only thanking Allah, because he revealed my innocence. Now, the three people the three Sahaba, who, who participated in this, if
they were punished with the punishment of others, which is at lashes, it's revealed in sort of the nude of the love and obey was not punished, because again, he was a leader. And if he was punished, that that would cause huge problems. Right. And also, the economists say that the main reason why he was not punished was because he was not even guilty from inside, he didn't even feel bad about what he had done. And Allah did not wish to purify him.
Allah did not wish to purify him. So his punishment in the hereafter will be worse, it will be much greater. So this, this, imagine this incident, it went on for an entire month. All right, this is because going on I should have the lower on I did not know the profits or losses that I'm loved, I should have the lower and then I shall the lower on him and she was talking to her mother. Her mother said that the Irish, every woman who is loved by her husband, people are envious of her.
So you know that your husband loves you. Right? So this is just a trick that people have come up with to hurt you.
And we learned that at this time, the profits or losses as some of the companions that What should I do? What do you think?
And some like for example, it is said that our data lower and who this is reported that he indirectly suggested the profits of the law firm that just divorce Arusha. Because, I mean, Allah has given you so many other lives, right? If she's innocent, no problem if she's guilty, you're free of her. Now, I showed Lorna when she learned about this, she was so angry with our little fellow on who, that for the rest of her life whenever she would have to mention anything about the law. I knew she would not even take his name.
You know, there's so many ahaadeeth in which we learned that I should have little or no saying that a man came.
Okay, a man came now Who is that man who's coming into the house of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Who could it be? It was early in the morning, but I should have learned how would not even mention his name. And this is normal. It's natural. And other companion. He said to the prophets that a lot of them that we don't know. I mean, we only know good about Ayesha. She's the daughter of Abu Bakar. Right? And if you need to know about her, ask people who are closest to her. So they called Mariela, who was a freed slave of eyeshadow on her. And she used to live with eyeshadow on her. And when she when she was asked, What do you know about OSHA? She's so nervous because the province of Alaska is
interrogating her. What do you know about OSHA? Is there any anything that would give us you know, a warning sign that perhaps OSHA will do something like that, and burrito, all that she can come up with is she sometimes forgets to knead the dough, and she leaves it outside and she falls asleep and a goat comes and eats it? This is the only sin of Ayesha chicken Remember, this is how beautiful the character I should have learned how it was.
But imagine a whole month.
A whole month goes by like this. No revelation came regarding this incident. And there's beautiful ads regarding this and sort of the new guiding the Muslim community regarding these matters, that if you don't know about something, if you haven't seen it, don't speak about it. Because when you're speaking about it, then you're spreading the slander you when you're spreading the slander, you're responsible for it.
And this was especially painful for the Prophet sallallahu
right? I mean, if you think about it, this incident could have happened with any other woman. Any other husband wife, right? But Allah decreed that it happened with who the prophets on the laws and what happened with his family. And then it could have happened with so though the Longhorn huh boom Salama, but Allah decreed that it happened with all right shall do the horn. This was a huge test for the prophets of the logic of Salah. But with this test, they were also great.
All right, everybody, stand up, please. Now I want you to discuss with the person standing next to you. Two lessons that you have learned from this incident, the incident of
selling from everyone. Okay, so the two lessons we learned our first was
that you're not supposed to speak about things that you don't know and confirmation or even if you do know it, it's best to just like,
rather than just saying it. And then when she I think tripped on the rock and she cursed her son, we said that you should. It's better to remain quiet when you're angry. Because when you're angry, you're going to say things you're going to regret later. So you should really think about what you're doing and not curse other people. And remember when the prophets of Allah was in the Battle of more than one companion, his fingers got cut off and he said,
and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, You should have said Bismillah, right. So whether we trip or we get a cut or anything instead of complaining and whining and cursing, remember our last panel, anything else quickly?
The whole time, everything is decreased so perfectly. All of this happened because she went to the washroom, and she forgot her necklace. And I was thinking I'm reflecting a couple of weeks ago about everything in our life that happens. It was just little decisions that we made that just came together. And everything was planned by Allah perfectly.
To know about it, she did not rant and rave and say, Why are you all accusing me when I'm innocent? She just says, please go to my parents home. And she waited. She did not even ask the prophets, a lot of them about this. When he came home. She said, Please allow me to go to my parents house. And when she went to her parents, she asked her mother, Is this true? And when her mother confirmed, then she cried.
The one thing I learned that how some people they think that nobody Susannah was used to know the life that he didn't know that he was quiet. And he was waiting
to reveal it is over he because a lot of people you know, they think that he was used to know the right. Yes. So this is what it is. It's a clear proof that he did not know the unseen
learn that the power of words, you know, saying something that could just be a passing comment can impact someone's life and can really have a devastating impact on their emotional well being, and even the relationship between husband and wife. So we have to just take every single word seriously. And also the way you said how every woman who is loved by her husband is envied by other women. I never knew that. So so it's something to think I showed the lover and his mother said that to her, she's basically comforting her, for someone who has, the story touches me a lot, because I feel myself crying. Because when you go through a situation, when I heard this, it is something like
similar to this happen, where I was accused of something that I didn't do. And there's not eyes that time, you get to like that time, there's no revision. So I was like, how long is gonna save me and it was making me cry, because I was going through this for five months. And actually, the person that did this to me, she found herself guilty. And then she went around to everybody that she told a falsehood to that she was wrong. So all those funds are saved me in that way. So it's like Allah will help you, you just have to be patient. Yes, you have to be patient. Look at the words of Asha sovereign, Jamie Oliver was on our level.
We don't think about the severity of this type of action, we don't put ourselves in the other person's shoes, when this type of talk goes on.
That this is something very serious, accusing someone of having an affair relationship with a non Muharram This is serious. And, you know, this is such a big thing, that the punishment for it is 80 lashes. And not not only that, like nowadays, you know, we hear, we hear a lot of things, you know, we hear, you know, things that we're not sure, like so and so's having a relationship with someone else, or, you know, this is what is going on. We don't know, what's the truth. But you know, we spread it, we tend to spread it. And it's a lot, it's a sin. And if you're a criminal offense,
I was thinking, the importance shows the importance to maintain self respect when you're innocent. And even if the greatest person thinks negatively of you, as long as Allah knows well of you, then you shouldn't feel bad about yourself.
Okay, the next main event was the Battle of zap. Now remember that these expeditions that we learned about with a seer, and that sort of caught there is difference of opinion, something had happened before accept something that happened after basically, the thing is at some element, they thought that the Battle of ourselves was fought in the fourth year of a journal. Mm hmm. It was of that opinion, that the Battle of ourselves was spot in the fourth year of hedger. And the evidence that Mr. Bahari gives in Sahih Bukhari is the narration of urban remodel DE LA or New who said that at the Battle of all heard he was 14, so he was not allowed to participate. But at the Battle of
Azeroth, he was 15. So he was allowed to participate. So they say only one year was between or her then his app, so they said his app was in fourth year. However, this narration alone, I mean, it's also possible that what Roman meant was that I was best 15
When that happened, because 15 was the requirement, right? The minimal age that a person could be off. So perhaps he meant that I was, you know, fast 15 When that happened, and I could participate in that or it's also possible that at the time of battle have already had just turned 14 All right, and that the Battle of Azeroth, he was at the end of 15. So, like that, there are two years because there are many narrations on the other hand that show that for example, the notion of jabil the lower that that sort of caught happened after hood right because of the fact that he was worried about the loan and everything that his father's death. So anyway, the there some orlimar say that
the Battle of art that happened in the fifth year of digital in the month of shall well. Now remember that the Jewish tribe that was expelled from Medina, which tribe was that?
First of all been lupino car and then boo naughty. Now the banana lead who had who had been expelled from Athena, they went to hyper alright. But remember that they had left behind in Medina, what
their houses even though they took their window frames and door frames and everything with them, but still they had left behind their houses. And it was not just the houses it was their lands. They had orchards and orchards of date palm gardens,
and they wanted it back and they wanted revenge.
But as the lowest point guard it says in the Quran in surah Allah Amanda Dori Batalla de la to enema superfood Illa we have them in Allah will have limitedness so they needed to have them in a nurse. They needed
The rope of people to get strength in order to take revenge. So who did they go to? They went to the crush, they sent an official delegation of their elders to Makkah. And they asked the courage to join hands with them and fight the Muslims. On top of this, they also promised a hefty financial contribution that said, you know what we'll sponsor most of it, you just bring your men, we want to do this together, we need your support in this. Now, the courage on the other hand, they had not had any, you know, victory over the Muslims so far, but there was a defeat or had brought no solution. Right? There was no clear victory on either side. And then the second bother the courage, they did
not have the confidence to go for it. Right? They returned without writing. So the offer of banana leaf looked very good to them. Immediately the courage were willing. They said, Yes, we are in this with you. Now what happened? The next step that the banana leader took was that they sent a delegation to hotel fan, remember what the fan the barbaric tribe, right? The not very civilized people, many men warriors, ready to fight greedy for wealth, not scared of bloodshed, they went to a lot of fun. And also remember that a lot of fun was the largest tribe up north. All right. So they went to a lot of fun, but a lot of fun. They were not interested. Because they had no problem with
the Muslims. so far. I mean, the expedition of what happened, but they learned their lesson, don't mess with the Muslims, they will come all the way here to fight us. And remember, the Muslims camped there for several days, 700 Muslims, and then the prophet SAW the loss and went back without any fight. The point was to cast terror into the hearts of a lot of fan, right. So what the fan had learned their lesson, don't mess with the Muslims. So that so that you who would have been an elite, they had to convince them
and they basically offered them that we will give you half of the produce of hybl for one year,
for one year, so that is, you know, huge income, right, a huge source of food supply. So this was kind of enough to convince them but the other fan, what did they do? They went behind the banana lead and they sent word to Medina to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying that this is what the Jews have offered us. You will give us a third of Medina. And we won't come fight you.
All right, you'll give us a third of Medina we won't come fight you. Now the prophets have a lot of them consultants on companions side been saddened by that because these were the Ansari leaders. But they said yeah, rasulillah we never surrender to anyone in the fame of Jay Lee. How can we then surrender to someone when Allah has honored us with Islam? We're not going to surrender and the prophets are laws that are like that. So basically, the what the fan were told that no, we don't want to surrender to you. We're not giving you anything. If you want to come fight, come fight. We'll deal with that. So what happened to kodesh? Now, they send delegations to different tribes,
all right, across the region, and their response was very positive. Everyone was willing to help the police in terms of arms, weapons, horses, warriors, etc. And what happened together 10,000 people came, and you see there's different groups over here. Banana lead, a lot of fun Qureshi of Makkah, and then all these little tribes from all over the area. This is why this battle is known as Zeb zebb. What does that mean? Different groups, to all the different groups of people, right? They came together against the Muslims. But remember that because they were Azad, there was no single, you know, one leader. Each group came with their own leader. So you see what's going on. It's a huge
group of people. But there's no unity here. And we see that this is what caused their defeat, eventually, no, no unity from the very beginning. Now, Abu Sufyan he was the leader of the largest group 4000 people from McCain. So he was the leader of the largest group, but remember that the I was very proud, right? This is why they didn't want one king.
each tribe had their own leader
because they were they were too proud to accept one leader. So even at the time of battle, what happened? They're coming together uniting under the banner of gopher but still they had no one leader. All right, I was a fan. He was a leader of the majority of the people you can say, but not everybody. So everyone began gathering in a pre selected place near Medina. And the plan was to gather there and then together march to Medina. Now one of the prophets of Allah is in Medina, he learned about this he assembled the Muslims he consulted them on the matter. Now the Muslims in Medina maximum you could say there were 2500 maximum. So 2500 Muslims
versus 10,000 people? How could there be a battle. And previously in the Battle of word, we learned that when the Muslims were very eager to go outside and fight, they learned their lesson, right? That you can't take much risk.
It's too dangerous. So now the prophet SAW the loss and was asking them for suggestions. Hardly any suggestions came because they didn't know what to do, they can come up with many options. Now, here, some manual fallacy lobello on who he suggested that a trench be dug, right? Because he said, This is what people do in Virginia. So the prophets, a lot of them he liked that idea. And therefore, the trench was to be dug. Alright, and this is the reason why this battle is also known as it was 100. Right? Because conduct is trench. All right.
Now remember that Medina, was naturally protected by volcanic rock on the east side and the west side, it's known as how do i sharqiya and Hara Herbie here?
Now volcanic rock for miles and miles, it's impossible for an army to walk on it. Right? And it's 10,000 people, not possible for them to come over the volcanic rock. All right. So the right side, the left side is blocked. All right? To the south of Medina, we're all dead ponds, orchards.
Now, even that area 10,000 people cannot come through. How can you walk through that pumps? You understand? And because the army was so huge, their numbers were a problem? Because how can you get 10,000 people through their palm trees or through orchards of a palm trees not possible. So the only option they had was to come through the side that was open into Medina because 10,000 people had to come in right? If only a group of them would come in the Muslims would fight them off. So the plan was 10,000 together Come in. So what happened? The idea was that the trench be dug between how Russia Turkey and Hara orbia.
All right. So basically joined the two volcanic plains, alright, with the trench,
you understand. So basically, the north of Medina, on the east volcanic rock left volcanic rock, South gardens and gardens have dead pumps, the only side that is open is north. So the army would only come from there. All right. Now this side is said that it was approximately one mile or a one kilometer two kilometers. Some said it was more than that. There's difference of opinion over this. All right. So the exact length and in fact, even the location of the trench, there is difference of opinion about this. All right. However, wherever that trench was, however long it was, the Muslims agreed to dig the trench. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam assigned 10 people. So he divided the
people, the Muslims into groups of 10.
And a group of 10, people were assigned a portion of about 40 feet, right to dig.
Now remember that this trench was approximately two kilometers or so long, right? Or one kilometer? That is also a pretty long distance, right? And then it had to be wide enough and deep enough. All right. And the point was that the Muslims would stand in front of the trench guarding the city of Medina. So that whenever the army would try to cross the trench, they would shoot arrows and basically, keep them away. All right. Now, the digging was a very difficult task. Because they were shortened time. They had no machines. They had limited tools, right, limited resources. And the profits are a lot of them himself participated in the digging of the trench. And how do we learn to
the prophets, Allison would say poetry while digging the trench and this haba would respond. And the Sahaba would say poetry and the prophets of Allah and would respond. So basically, they were encouraging one another, right? And remember, when they were building the masjid, same thing happened, right? But a little dillo on who he said that I saw the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam on the day of the Battle of trench carrying earth he himself was carrying Earth in mud, till the hair of his chest were covered with dust, and the Prophet sallallahu sallam. I mean, he had hair on his chest, but bulat said that you couldn't even see the hair.
Why? Because there were so much mud caked on his abdomen was completely covered. And he was carrying dust. All right. And while he was doing that, the problem is that a lot of sudden um, he was saying, the poetry of our beloved raha Allahumma, Lola and Medina, what are the sadhana? What else Elena for Angela Sakina. Tonight, Elena was submitted apadana
In law cleaner in the affordable hallway Elena either arrived to fit and attend avena that Oh Allah word not for you, we would not have been guided. Look at these words, a time of difficulty. What do we say Allah What's going on here? We need your help, and the prophets analyze them and say, yeah Allah, if it were not for you, we would not have been guided, nor would we have given in charity. You guided us. You allowed us to give charity
nor would we have prayed you allowed us to pray. So they're taking this problem as a favor of Allah soprano Darla, look at our positive Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is so bestow on us calmness. And when we meet the enemy, then make our feet firm. For indeed, if they want to put us in affliction, meaning if they want to come fight us, then we refuse meaning we refuse to flee, we will remain firm, and we will fight them and restarted the profits or losses used to raise his voice when reciting the last words of these verses of poetry.
And this was not also help inside the little man who said that we were with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam in the trench and some people were digging the trench while some people were carrying the mud away.
And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he said Allahu Allah I shall ilari shall fulfill mohideen I will answer or Allah there is no life except the life of the hereafter. So forgive them Oh, hygiene and the answer. In another Hadith we learned that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he saw the Mohammed you don't, it was cold, they were hungry, alright, early morning, they were tired, they were scared, and they're carrying, you know, mud away and they're digging, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he felt really bad for them. Because as a leader he felt for them. And the Sahaba they said, Nana, Latina, valur or Mohammed, or the Islamic Ummah, Burkina.
They said, We are those who have given the pledge of allegiance to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Islam as long as we live. You see the the air of positivity over here. Nobody's complaining, nobody's angry. Nobody's whining, there's nothing like that everybody's positive and the prophets are the laws and when he heard them saying this, he responded Allahumma in the hula Hira, illa phytolacca for baddeck will Ansari will.
In one version, he said forfeit. Here, he said baddeck. And we see that in less than 10 days, it took about six days, and some say about two weeks. So around 10 days, the entire trench was dug. Without machines with limited manpower limited tool. This is a this is a miracle indeed. And it shows the determination of the Sahaba. And we learned that while the trench was being dug, there was a shortage of food supplies from the very beginning. Because first of all this battle was in winter, which means that they're already eating the food that they have saved up there is no fresh supply from the day pumps. Right? And secondly, this battle was something that they had not prepared for.
Right? So they could not replenish their supplies. And now what happened was that from the moment the trench was to be dug, they were busy digging the trench, everybody was busy.
They didn't have time to go outside, buy some food, come back. Nobody had the time and even if they were to go, they would find the enemy. You understand, so nobody could go outside to buy food. There was a shortage of food supplies from the very beginning, even while the trench was being dug. Jabba bin Abdullah, remember Jagat alone.
He said that we were digging the trench in the day of conduct and we came across a big rock. We couldn't break it. So we went to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we can't break this rock. He said, Okay, I'm coming down. He came in the trench. He said Bismillah and he struck the rock, and the rock literally turned into sand.
Now Javelin a little earlier, he said that when I saw the prophets that was him doing that his shirt, it lifted a little bit. And I saw rocks died to the stomach of the prophets of Allah. This is a Buhari. Why were rock status? No, because he was so hungry that he had tied rocks to his stomach. So Jagger Otto or who He said He had a sort of a please allow me to go home. So he went home quickly. And he said to his wife, is there anything to eat? Remember his wife?
Is there anything to eat? She said that we just have a little bit of barley and we have a goat. So he said, I started the goat right away. She grabbed the barley. She'd made dough from it, and I cooked the meat. And as soon as that was done, I went to call the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He said when I was leaving, my wife said, do not disgrace me in front of Allah's Messenger, meaning don't go call everybody
Just call the profits on a lot of seller. So, Javid autobarn, who went to the profits of a lot of them quietly, and he said, he also lives in food, please come. The profits of the lesson said, What is it? And he told him what it was the profits of the license and it's good. It's enough and he said, Get up or people of the trench. So there are 1000 people over there digging the trench. Everybody goes home with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam goes to the house of Jabba below on him. And when he reaches his house on 1000, people who are coming, the wife of Javid, she said, me a lot of so and so to you. All right. She said, She's getting angry, I told you to do the secretly What have
you done? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he came in, he said to the companions, enter, but do not crowd right meaning take your food and disperse. Don't just sit over here, how can 1000 people fit in the house of gentlemen? So and the prophets of the Muslim called the wife of javin, and he basically took the door, said Bismillah, and then the meat also, and he told his wife that call your friend to help bake the bread, meaning don't do this yourself. There's 1000 people call call a friend of yours and bake the bread together. And she said Jabba Lauren, who said the the bread was baked, the meat was cooked. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam began breaking the bread into pieces,
and he would put some meat over it and he would pass it. So he himself is pouring the food and serving his companions. And every single one of those 1000 people eat from that food. Java said, they were 1000 people who ate and by Allah they all ate, and when they left the food and went away, our part was still bubbling, meaning it was still full of meat. It was as if it had not decreased in our dough was still being baked as if nothing of the door had been used.
And the prophets of Allah sent him said to the wife of Jabba, eat, meaning eat the food, and also give to others because the people are struck with hunger.
She wanted the food only for a certain loss.
But the prophets Allah said I wanted the food for everybody.
Never be selfish when it comes to food. Allah will put Baraka
and imagine 1000 people ate from this
there were many other miracles that happened which which really showed the Muslims with the help of Allah spawn tada is there but the help came when they took the challenge when they embraced it with you know, hope and trust in Allah subhanaw taala positive, you know, you can see the positivity in their words in their actions in their determination. No negative words about a lot no negative thought about aligners messenger and the help of Allah soprano Darla Kim and Taylor. We will continue with this in our next session.
