Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

How are you all doing?

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

Una salir a lot of swelling is getting him and I borrowed for him in a shape line Hello Jean Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, Arab Israelis Saudi were silly and the wildlands that Emily Sani of Coco Lee,

00:00:18--> 00:00:25

the Battle of Zeb the Battle of trench, also known as the Battle of Hunter.

00:00:27--> 00:01:12

Why is it called the Battle of Zeb? Because zap is a plural of his and Azad means various groups. So in this battle, who came to fight the Muslims one group only know several groups of people. So who came exactly? The Croatia maka? Who else? The banana lead, okay, they also came, and because they're the ones who basically gathered the people, right, and who else one other major group of disbelievers that came to fight the Muslims. The a lot of fun. Exactly. And of course, there were many other small tribes as well. But these were the two major tribes that had come in order to fight the Muslims. Now when the prophets a lot is that I'm heard about the various groups coming to

00:01:12--> 00:01:35

Medina. What was his reaction? he consulted the companions, and he asked them as to what strategy the Muslims should adopt in order to fight the enemy. But on realizing that the enemy was huge, what was the suggestion that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam accepted that the Muslims dig a trench outside? Medina? All right, and this was at whose suggestion

00:01:36--> 00:02:17

Selma al Farsi radi Allahu anhu. Now, if you see this image over here, and I know it's not very clear, but this is the north of Medina you see Jebel or her right I showed you earlier that jungle or her This is in the north of Medina. All right. Now, if you look at the bottom side, if you you'll see a red.in the center, okay, that is where Masjid nabawi is. All right. Now on the right side, you see some brown brown stuff. And on the left side also, you see brown brown stuff. All right, the brown on the right, and on the left, that is the volcanic rock. All right. The one on the right is known as hella sharqiya. And the one on the left is known as Hara orbia. All right now in the south

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

of Masuda, nabawi is what date palm orchards. All right. So what is the one natural opening into the city where 10,000 men could come in from the north, you understand the opening between hella shorty and Hara? orbia. Alright. So you see this line over here? This is where the trench was dug. The purpose of the trench was to because it wasn't all around the city, that would be impossible. All right, that would be too long, and it would be impossible. And how would the Muslims guard that trench anyway? All right. So the point was to to join the hammer Shirky and however via All right, so a trench was dug from one side all the way to the other. All right. And the enemy, of course,

00:03:02--> 00:03:30

could not march into the city, from the volcanic rock, nor could they come through the date bombs. So what did they do? We learned that because remember that MCI is in the south of Medina, right? So when the Quraysh marched to Medina, all right, you see the red dots on the left side of the picture, right. So that is where the kadesh you can say that is where they said camp. All right. The local farm came from north, they came down to Medina, and they camped near double overhead.

00:03:31--> 00:03:52

You understand? So you can imagine all the north side of Medina is what? Enemy 10,000 people. All right, and there's so many camps all over from Mount Ohio, all the way to the northwest of Medina. All right. So this is where the 100 was dug. Is it clear now? Okay.

00:03:53--> 00:04:38

So remember that the trench digging, it was no easy task. Alright, because first of all, it was long. I mean, even though it was not all around the city, but still, it was approximately two kilometers or a little over one mile long. And it was supposed to be several feet deep and also wide enough that no one would jump over it easily. All right. So and the plan was that the Muslims would camp such that their backs would be towards a mountain, they would be facing the trench, alright. And the enemy would be on the other side of the trench. All right. Now the machine of kadesh they arrived, and how many were there? 4000 of them. Right. And there's a lot of fan. And other people

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

from nudge, they came and they were 6000 of them.

00:04:43--> 00:04:55

So the auto fan they said camp near Mount Hood, and the mushrikeen of Quraysh. They said camp near you can say hello over beer. However, that is where they said camp.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Allah. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Azhar

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

is Joe menfolk a con woman as fellow men come when they came to you from above you and also from below you? What is meant by from above you is from the north of Medina who came a lot of fun. And what is meant by below you is from the south of Medina and who came from there? The machine of Quraysh All right, what is xalatan absorb? And when the eyes were turning around, meaning they couldn't even close their eyes, they were so worried. Well beneva till colluvial 100 and the hearts were reaching up to the throats. What aluna Bella is Luna Luna and you were thinking about Allah several thoughts, meaning some people were wondering that How are the Muslims going to survive this?

00:05:45--> 00:06:27

How is Allah Subhana Dada going to help them at this occasion? Now what happened on arrival, the the enemy, they are they advanced towards Medina in order to enter I remember that there was no one main leader of the enemy. They'll defend their tribes they have their own leader then we sticking that their own leader there was no one leader for the for the entire army. Each group was led by its own leader. Now when they arrived they set camp eventually they made their way towards Medina right together 10,000 men strong they advanced towards me that Medina in order to enter but when they came, what did they see? The Trench and on this Abu sufian set to come Akita on May Allah for Allah

00:06:27--> 00:07:11

Arab, that this is something that the Arabs don't know this is a trick that the Arabs have no clue about. We've never seen this before. We don't even know about it. And we see over here that the Muslims majority of them who were the Arabs, but you see how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam accepted a suggestion. That was what Arab foreign right version, because there was nothing wrong with it. In fact, it was very good, it was beneficial. So we see that when it comes to worldly matters, when it comes to worldly matters, there is absolutely no harm in borrowing from others, their ideas, their technology, or their advancements there. Though whatever they have produced whatever they have made.

00:07:11--> 00:07:50

There's absolutely no harm in that. In fact, there is benefit in this. But when it comes to the matters of Dean then Can we borrow from other cultures and other religions? No way we cannot. So the machine when they reach the trench, I was a fan he was surprised and the Michigander began marching along the side of the trench to see which point would be suitable to cross over from Alright, but the prophets on a lot of them had the Muslim army thinly divided, all right on the other side of the trench. And the purpose was to defend the trench and to ward off any person who would approach the trench in order to cross it. Lost hands on assistance with what amount of mineral azova calu had Mr.

00:07:50--> 00:08:14

odden Allahu wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, one Masada home Illa, even with a sliema that when the believers saw the hazard the various groups approaching they said this is exactly what Allah and His Messenger had promised us. And Allah and His Messenger have spoken the truth to us, meaning when they saw this huge challenge approaching this danger coming in, they said this is exactly what we signed up for.

00:08:15--> 00:08:52

Right and remember what the Sahaba said when they were digging the trench, that we are the ones who have given our pledge to Muhammad Sallallahu Sunnah. Right. And they basically, were very proud of of the fact that they were with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam defending the religion of Allah subhanaw taala. Now we see that at this point, all the women, the children and men who were extremely old, they were sent to the fortresses have been had is I remember I mentioned to you earlier that when the prophet SAW the laws and migrated to Medina, there were many fortresses that belonged to the hood. But there were also some fortresses that belonged to the onsolve. Right, you

00:08:52--> 00:09:33

remember that? Okay, so some fortresses that belong to the Ansel, especially the bundle hadiza. So the women, the children and the very old men they were sent to those fortresses why, for the purpose of protection? All right. Why because in Medina, there was still a threat from the bonobo, raela there was still one Jewish tribe in Medina. All right. And if you think about it, it was their cousins who lead who had mustered up against the Muslims who had gone and call the police and a lot of fun, all right, against the Muslims. So it was a banana leaf. So there was this risk that what if the bonobo ala now side with the banana leaf, they side with the machine they betrayed the Muslims,

00:09:34--> 00:09:58

and they attacked the Muslim homes, the Muslim houses while the men are guarding the trench? You understand? So the been Okonedo even though the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had a treaty with them, but still they were not reliable. And if you think about it, previously, two tribes that were expelled from Medina, the blue car and the banana lead, each time a Jewish tribe was expelled the Prophet sallallahu Sallam renewed the contract with the Banu karela

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

All right, each time he went to the local a lot, and he made them swear out that they would not betray the Muslims. And basically he made them renew the treaty, and they had renewed but so far the reputation with the old had not been such that the new Corolla would be reliable. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had all the women children, as well as the the old men go to a to some fortresses for their safety. All right. And there are some incidents that we learned that happened over there that eventually when the when the balaclava did betray the Muslim some of them they actually went to the fortress in order to attack in order to see if the fortress was even guarded. And there was a

00:10:38--> 00:11:05

lady inside who heard at nighttime, you know, cement outside. So she woke up It is said that one of the companions, he was also over there. So she woke him up that go and see what's going on outside. And it is said that it was her sanguine Sabbath or the Lord because her salmon salad while he was a great board, it is said that he did not have the strength to even hold a sword. He was not a fighter. He couldn't do that. But his tongue was very sharp.

00:11:07--> 00:11:46

So he was not guarding the trench. Rather, he was in the fortress. So this lady she woke him up that go and see what's outside. And he said that, you know, the weapons are not for me. I don't do this stuff. Right. And so she tried to, you know, make him feel bad. But he didn't, he didn't go. So eventually she took the shell of a man, she took a dagger, and she went down to fortress. And when she saw that there were people from the bungee cord Ella who had come. So she silently attacked, one man secretly attacked one man cut his head off, threw it down. And the rest of the people who were down they realized that the fortress has guarded, so they escaped, basically. So anyway, we see that

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

during this battle, even the women were

00:11:48--> 00:12:29

very strong. So the machine, what did they do, they laid siege and they sat camp outside Medina thinking that the trench was just a waiting game, and very soon the Muslims would have to surrender because how long are they going to stay locked up in the city of Medina, eventually they're going to have to go out. Right? So but remember that when the machine came for this battle, they did not come prepared. All right for a siege. You understand? What did they plan they will just come attack the city when and go back home. Right? But when they come to Medina, what do they see a trench, they cannot even go inside. So what do they have to do now? Set camp. Now when they said camp every day

00:12:29--> 00:13:12

feeding 10,000 people requires a lot of, you know, money and resources. So okay, maybe they had supplies for a week for two weeks for three weeks. All right, they came prepared for two, three weeks. But then after that what happened? As the resources began depleting, and and there you can see their determination and their their inner strength, it began to dwindle away. They started losing confidence. All right. So basically, they they set up camp thinking that eventually Muslims will surrender, but the Muslims did not surrender. Now, meanwhile, we learned that almost every day the machine would come to the trench in order to cross it. But there was no success because the

00:13:12--> 00:13:39

trench was constantly guarded during the day and also during the night. So 24 hours, the Muslims were guarding the trench. All right. And we learned that in the night, especially when the Muslims would guard the trench, obviously, all of them would not go, some of them would go. But when they would go, they would say took the rod out very loudly. And the purpose was to give a message to the enemy, that there are many of us.

00:13:40--> 00:14:00

All right, there are many of us. So they would scatter all around the trench basically. And they would say that we rot out loudly. And the purpose was to give the impression that the army is large, the Muslims have their resources and Muslims are completely ready. Now we learned that while defending the trench guarding the trench, many prayers were even missed.

00:14:01--> 00:14:14

All right, because the Muslims were constantly guarding the trench in Sarajevo, how do we learn that on the day of conduct the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, may Allah fill their houses and graves with fire who's

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

of the enemy,

00:14:17--> 00:14:37

just as they have prevented us from offering the middle prayer until the sun has set, meaning the Muslims were not able to press a letter. So the prophets of the Law Center was so angry and grieved that he made the law against the enemy. We also learned another Hadith and ohada, the Urban hataoka de la and he came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam after the sun had set.

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

Right and he was abusing the machine. We were saying really bad things about them or to them. And he said yeah, Rasul Allah, I was unable to offer that also prayer until the sun has set. I couldn't pray more also, I was constantly guarding the trench. I couldn't pray my answer for that. So the prophets of Allah is that I'm said by Allah, even I have not offered the wrestle prayer yet. So then

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

What happened a little bit over and who said that we came down along with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to the area of Bhutan. So it was basically a safer place to go to. And there, the Prophet sallallahu unperformed will do. And then he offered us a prayer. And then he offered the motive prayer, even though the sun had set the time for Muslims had come in, but which prayer did they perform first?

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

And then they performed.

00:15:25--> 00:16:04

Now, we also learned that so much they came, they actually did manage to cross the trench. All right. So for example, we learned about this one men have been armed wood. All right, Wood was an was an idol of theirs. So I'm gonna bring up the wood, he managed to cross the trench, and when he crossed the trench, you can imagine the surprise of the Muslims. All right. And as he came very confidently, he said, he basically challenged that that that one Muslims want one of the Muslims should come for come forward and fight him. All right. So I need I'll do a lot more on who he came forward. He said, I will fight you. I'm gonna said, I have no desire to kill you or child. So

00:16:04--> 00:16:21

basically, you know, he said to a little bit on who you're so young, because he was still quite young, either in his late teens or early 20s. So he was still quite young. So I'm going to say, I have no desire to kill you. Go away. I want to fight somebody else. I need to learn who said to him, but I desire to kill you.

00:16:22--> 00:16:45

So at this moment, he got so enraged, he got so angry that he jumped off his horse, and he attacked I need to know on one alone, I know he fought him off. And when when when he jumped off of his horse, it is said that so much dust rolls that basically early and I knew they were hidden. Nobody could see what was going on.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

Until eventually they heard of the Longhorn Hussain Allah.

00:16:51--> 00:17:15

Because he had killed armor that we also learned that another man nofal, even of the law, he crossed over. He was also from the machine. He crossed over and zevalin armadillo, and he immediately he charged at him. And it is said that literally he split his body into half. And when he did that someone said is a beta below or know what an amazing store do you have? says a beta lower and who said no, it's not the sword. It's the arm.

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

It's not the sword. It's the arm.

00:17:21--> 00:17:29

Then we learned that hardly they've been bullied and eczema, even they managed to cross over. But of course, the panels are saved.

00:17:31--> 00:18:19

And you know why I say that? Because eventually both of them, they embraced Islam. So they crossed over in order to fight the Muslims. But they went back. And we see that in this entire time, only 10 machine were killed, and only six Muslims. were martyred. So you can imagine 10,000 people came. All right. And it is said that they laid siege for about 30 days 30 to 40 days. During this whole time how many machines were killed? Only 10. And how many Muslims? Only six. All right. Now, while the siege was laid, what happened? Remember that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he expected treachery from the bonobo Eva, right. And that's exactly what happened. During the siege, we learned that

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

haven Craven after he was the chief of banana leaf, who were the banana lead, who had gone to Quraysh and who had gone to hit the fan, all right, and they had basically encouraged them to come fight the Muslims. So the chief of Vernon would have been honorably haven after he made his way into Medina, somehow cross the trench or Allahu Allah somehow somehow he came into Medina and he went straight to the bundle karela. And when he went to the bundle karela he got to the house of the leader of a nuclear ala cub. All right. When he reached his house, he knocked on the door, sought permission to come in. But God said no go away. He didn't even want to talk to her even though

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

because he knew exactly why he had come create had come to have the nuclear ala site with them but by no karela the leader carb said that I have a treaty from Mohammed salatu salam and I will not break my promise because so far, I have only you know, seen that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is truthful with me he's honest with me and I don't want to betray him. And if you think about it three times they had made the treaty with the Muslims right. So garb he refused outright. However, he was a very intelligent man. And he did not give up just like Shelton does not give up.

00:19:35--> 00:19:49

And he insisted, insisted until eventually car let him in. And when he let him in, he insisted and he gave him his shorties and he gave him his promises until eventually carb agreed.

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

carb agreed with her a and basically, the agreement was that the Renault Corolla would side with the banana lead with the enemy and together they would at

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

Muslims ibnu karela from behind, and the machine from over the trench. All right, and as a result together, they would attack the Muslims and finish them off. Now what happened? We learned that on the day of the Battle of the Mojave, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, who will bring us the news of the people which people don't know karela because he wanted to know what's going on because all the Muslims were at the trench. So he wanted someone to go to the new Corolla and see what the new corretta are doing. All right, so it's available our new he said, I will, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam again said, who will bring this the news of the people debatable in Oman who said, I will the

00:20:40--> 00:21:19

Prophet sallallahu Sallam against that, who will bring us the news of the people and debatable on Who said I will. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, every prophet has a holiday. And my holiday is zubaid. every prophet has a disciple helper. And my helper my disciple is, is available over and so it was at this occasion that's available on who is called the Hawaii of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So it's available on who went to the Monaco ala. And when he reached there, he saw by the activities of an aqua ala and the webinar karela dealt with debatable or notable Nokia had basically broken their treaty with the Muslims and they were on the side of the enemy. So he came to the

00:21:19--> 00:21:58

Prophet sallallahu Sallam and informed him, but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wanted more confirmation. So he sent the two elders or you can say the two leaders of the unsought and who were decided mas de la or new and zarbin are bad little digital Mario. So he sent both of them. And when they reached the new karela, they tried to have a conversation with them. But by no karela basically began cursing the Muslims, they began cursing the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and southern Morocco that I knew he basically responded to them with the like, Alright, he also began cursing them and verbally abusing them. So sad, the more I held his hand and he said, Our matter is beyond just

00:21:58--> 00:22:29

cursing. Right? We're not here to curse each other. It's beyond cursing, this is far more serious than just cursing. So in other words, control your tongue. Let's go and do what we have to do. So both of them, they return to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but when they saw there were so many Muslims with the prophets, and a lot of them they didn't want to give the bad news. Because you can imagine the fear that would spread. But again, they wanted to tell the Prophet sallallahu immediately. So what did they say to the prophets, Eliza? They said herbal and Cora, you remember,

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

the two tribes that betrayed the Muslims.

00:22:33--> 00:23:10

They asked, they came to the Prophet Salas and asked if a group of Muslims could be sent the Prophet sallallahu and sent them and they attacked the Muslims and they killed them off. So they said other than color. In other words, the binocular Ella have also betrayed us just as the original color betrayed us, then you can imagine this was very, very bad news. Very bad news. Because one of the sides from where the Muslims were being defended was through by nuclear Allah. Right there was a whole population, this is why the enemy could not come from there. But if the bundle Khurana turned against the Muslims, then what?

00:23:12--> 00:23:21

The Muslims are in complete danger. Now you can imagine this was very bad news. But what was the reaction of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? He said, Allah Akbar,

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

Allahu Akbar, it says, though he is happy.

00:23:27--> 00:23:32

It's as though he's celebrating that okay, a bigger problem. That means bigger victory.

00:23:34--> 00:23:54

Right? Because people who who face small problems in life, then what victories? Do they have small victories, right? Like, for example, if our problem in the whole day is that we didn't get the laundry done, or we didn't get the dishes done, right. And then eventually on the weekend, if we do conquer the laundry, and we do conquer the dishes, then what's our victory? dishes and laundry? Okay?

00:23:55--> 00:24:08

But if we have bigger problems in life, like somebody is mad at us, right? Or we have two assignments and three tests coming up, and then eventually we conquer them, we deal with them. Then what then what have we accomplished?

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

greater victories right?

00:24:12--> 00:24:56

Look at how the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he dealt with problems. He always saw them as opportunities. A big a bigger problem means a greater opportunity for greater success. So the prophets have a lot of his reaction was Allahu Akbar okay if they would have betrayed us, just as the banana lead and bundle a bundle cleaner cart did previously then what happened? The Muslims one at the end, right? So even over here, a lot will give victory to the Muslims. Now we learned that this night was the most difficult night upon the Muslims. When they received this news that the bundle karela had betrayed them because 10,000 soldiers people are outside Medina. And then the

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

bundle caught a lot on the other hand are also turning against the Muslims.

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

And within Medina, the hypocrites, the moon Africans, they work constantly you can say bickering constantly from the beginning, we learned that from the time of digging the trench, we learned that at one occasion, there was a huge rock that the Muslims could not break. So they call the Prophet sallallahu sallam. All right? The problem is that a lot of them came in his truck it and when he struck it, a light came out, and he said, Allahu Akbar, I have been given the keys of a sham, huh. And then he struck it again, and another light came out. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the Muslims about the victory of other empires. And another time, the profits or the loss, I'm struck,

00:25:37--> 00:26:21

and the light came out of the profits of the loss, and again, gave the Muslims good news off the victory over Yemen. So victory over a sham victory over Persia, and victory over Yemen. Right? Now, these are the three main you can say empires at the time, Yemen in the south, alright. And in the north, on the one hand, was a sham, and on the other hand, was Persia. And what was the reaction of the monarchical, that here we are so hungry, and tired and exhausted, and the Muslims are dreaming about victory over Persia, we can barely survive here. And the Muslims are dreaming about victory over a sham victory of Yemen. So all became very difficult upon the Muslims, because there was enemy

00:26:21--> 00:26:42

on one side, and on the other side, and from within the moon, African, we're constantly, you know, saying negative things. And this is something that is very, very difficult to deal with, you know, when there's a huge challenge before you and you're, you're trying to deal with it. And then what happens? There's someone who's right next to you constantly saying negative things to you.

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

What do you want to do?

00:26:46--> 00:27:28

Get away from them, right? But how do you get away from them? If they're right next to you? The hypocrites could not be evicted from Medina, could they be? They were apparently Muslim. And it's mentioned in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says that when Allah kapitolyo manana was zero Zilch, silent. shalida This is where the believers were tested and they were shaken xilin shalida a severe shaken. What is the akula? monashee poonawalla Dena fiocco, Luba marrowbone, Mahajan, Allahu Allah, Sulu, Illa Allah, that when the hypocrites were saying, and those people who had disease in their hearts that align His Messenger have not promised us anything except for the section. There is no

00:27:28--> 00:28:02

victory. This is all deception. And then the one Africa at this point, they also started saying what if counterpart if at a minimum, yeah, las river l'amour, Carmela confirmed you when a group of them was saying all people have yesterday. Remember earlier on I mentioned to you that the mafia schooner, the ones who called Medina yesterday, they said all people have yesterday if you have no position here, meaning there's no way you can fight the enemy. So go back home, go back home, go to your houses and guard your houses basically.

00:28:03--> 00:28:23

Where's the new ferrea caminho nebia coluna in Abu Tana, our mama here, they were saying that our houses are exposed. In other words, their danger, the binocular Allah will attack Allah says no, they were not a danger. Because the last panel Tara had fortified the Muslims in Europe, una Illa ferrata hypocrites only wanted to escape.

00:28:25--> 00:29:00

Now we learned that at this point, the Muslims they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that our hearts are reaching up to the throats, he could imagine how anxious and how worried the Muslims must have been at this point. Even though they had faith in Allah, they had trust in Allah, they knew that they were going to be victorious, that they would not suffer in Allah's way. And if they do suffer anything, Allah subhanaw taala will definitely compensate them with what is better, but still, after all, there were human beings, they were worried they were anxious. So they asked the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what should we say? What should we do? And the prophets all answered and

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

taught them to say, Allahu mosteiro, Latina,

00:29:04--> 00:29:09

Latina, this is mentioned in Muslim that Oh Allah cover

00:29:10--> 00:29:17

cover our our lot our our weaknesses, what am or atina and settle our fears

00:29:19--> 00:29:31

that put our fears to rest. Because you see external danger. Alright, external fears, you can always overcome them if you have

00:29:32--> 00:29:36

confidence and faith in your heart. But if you're internally weak,

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

if you are afraid inside that even a small challenge, you cannot overcome it. So what is necessary inner strength, inner confidence? And that is what the prophets Allah has taught them to say alone was that our Latina will Amador Athena. That we learned that at this point while the Muslims were guarding the trench, and the blue credo had also betrayed the Muslims.

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

An arrow from the side of the machine. It hit solid winmar below more on who on his arm.

00:30:08--> 00:30:35

It was on his arm, causing him to bleed profusely. But it is said that he was bleeding so much that he couldn't fight anymore. He couldn't even stand anymore. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had a tent pitched for him in the masjid. So that's our double o on who would stay in the masjid. All right, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam could visit him could look after him himself. Because our than rather than Omar who was no ordinary man, he was of the leaders of the unsought.

00:30:37--> 00:31:05

sourthern are on the lower end who now he's in the masjid, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he also sent a large group of Muslims, it has said about 200 Muslims to the fortresses of men who had to die in order to guard the women and the children. All right. Now, obviously, when the servant isn't a loss of weight, there are times of extreme difficulty, literally the time where the heart is reaching up to the throat and you feel like your heart is gonna jump out. You're gonna vomit it out.

00:31:06--> 00:31:10

And Allah subhanaw taala, he tests His servants at this point,

00:31:11--> 00:31:27

that what is my sermon going to do? And we learned that Muslims at this point, they were so strong, they were so firm in their faith in the last panel, Allah, God sent his help, he sent his aid, how we learned that around the 20th day of the seeds, so now 20 days had gone by.

00:31:28--> 00:31:49

One man from the auto fan, his name was, Ben was rude. naureen been through a lot of funny, he came to the Muslims, right? He's somehow across the trencher. He came from the side of publisher to Libya, somehow, he came one man, it's easy for him to come, right. So he came into Medina, and he came to the Prophet sallallahu set him straight. And he said to him, I have accepted Islam.

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

Tell me what I can do.

00:31:52--> 00:32:02

instruct me, tell me what I can do. Now this is Allah help. That from nowhere, one man from the sign of the enemy, Allah subhanaw taala changes his heart.

00:32:03--> 00:32:31

So he came to fight the Muslims. Now what happens? He accepts Islam. He comes to the prophets of Allah Islam and he asks, What can I do to help the prophets of Allah samsa he said that you are only one man What can you do? Meaning on our side, you can't exactly do much go back and do something that you can I go back to your people and see what you can do over there. So basically, the profits are the Lawson is giving him full permission, do whatever you can think of.

00:32:33--> 00:32:37

So now I am he asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Do you give me permission to do anything?

00:32:38--> 00:32:53

Anything? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, war is trick and deceit. Like what in war? mean? Yes, you are going to trick each other? Now remember that this is Hadar, not piano. Piano is something that is not

00:32:54--> 00:32:56

acceptable even from a believer.

00:32:57--> 00:33:37

Right? Because piano is that you say you're going to do one thing, but you do another? It's it's betrayal. All right. And he there is that you? You kind of deceive the other in the sense that he gets the wrong impression. This is what QRadar is. So anyway, noraim. He made a plan. He went to the bundle pureza he went to the one operetta, and he said that, you know, you know who I am. We're good friends. We've had good dealings in the past. And I really mean the best for you. And he said, Look, this is your land. This is your home, you live here. Right? And the Quraysh, whom you have sided with? Where is their home in Makkah.

00:33:38--> 00:33:42

If they want to quit and go back, they have nothing to lose.

00:33:43--> 00:34:29

Right? Because their homes are in Mecca. If they leave, they go back home, they've got nothing to lose. But if they leave, they leave you here. What do you lose everything. Because now you have broken your treaty with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, right? So you're at risk here, you understand what he's saying to them, that if the Quraysh leave, you've made alliances with them. But if they leave, they've got nothing to lose. But when they will leave, who will suffer? You will suffer. Right? So you want to make sure that the police do not leave at all, that they do not abandon you. So for that, you ask them to give you some of their men hostage as collateral.

00:34:30--> 00:34:39

Right? You ask them that they give you some of their men. All right. And this would be like a, like an assurity that the crush will not leave.

00:34:41--> 00:34:57

You understand what he's saying here? So they said, Okay, that makes sense. That's exactly what we want. We don't want courage to leave us. We don't want them to abandon us over here. So we'll ask them to give us some of their men will keep them hostage as collateral, and basically the kurush will not leave.

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

They like this idea.

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

Now, no, I am he went to the polish. And he said, again, you know who I am. We've had good dealings in the past. I'm very sincere to you. And by the way, I have a secret to tell you keep it as a secret. And he says to them, the banal Corella, they regret what they're doing. What are they doing? They have broken their treaty with the profits out of autism, right, and they want to go back. Because they don't really trust you. They think that you're going to leave them.

00:35:31--> 00:36:01

All right. And they will basically want to make that they want to go back on friendly terms with the Muslims. And for that they have offered the Muslims, some of your men, some of your men, so the bulk of Allah will demand from you some men as hostage, don't give them. Because once you give them your men, they're going to turn them over to the Muslims. And when they're turned over to the Muslims, they'll be killed. So do not give your men to the bazooka Eva. They said, Yes, we should not.

00:36:02--> 00:36:38

Now what happened? He went to the auto fan. And he said the same thing to them. But the Qureshi will ask you for some of your men, because they want to make sure that you don't leave. All right. But once once you hand over your men, they're not reliable. What if they kill them? So now what happens bunnicula they send work to the kurush give us some of your mentors hostage, they said no way. We're not doing that. A lot of fan courage, same thing is happening. Each group is demanding people from from from the other group, nobody's cooperating. What's going on over here?

00:36:41--> 00:36:43

What's going on over here this unity, right?

00:36:44--> 00:36:47

Each group does not trust the other group

00:36:48--> 00:36:58

to understand. So basically, seeds of doubt, have been put here already. They were divided because they had no one leader. Now there were further divided you see why lost pounds are the causes are

00:36:59--> 00:37:41

not his. Because they were not his. They were observed. They were not united. They were not together. So what happened now? I will Sofia and he got very agitated about Sofia. And he's and he sent it to the bundle. karela. And he said, they sent message that you know what? Together forget about all these men that we're going to give each other as hostage forget about that tomorrow, which was going to be Saturday, tomorrow. Let us all together attack the Muslims. You attack them from your homes and we will also somehow cross the trench and together Let's attack the Muslims. Now Saturday is what?

00:37:42--> 00:37:43

Sabbath

00:37:44--> 00:37:57

binocular who yahood they don't fight on Saturday, right? So this particular No way. We're not going to fight on Saturday. Wait until Sunday. We'll fight on Sunday.

00:37:58--> 00:38:11

We came on when confused because they had no idea what Sabbath was. All right. They didn't live next to the Jews. They didn't know what Sabbath was. So he went to Sofia and he said, You know what? They want a day in the middle because they want to tell the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:38:13--> 00:38:28

so we cannot trust them. We see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had made the wrong. This is mentioned in Buhari, he made Allahumma munzer Al Kitab. Sorry, Al Hassan is zimmel Azad Allahumma Zim, whom was el zil home?

00:38:29--> 00:39:10

Oh Allah, the revealer of the book, the one who takes the account very quickly defeat the clans or Allah defeat them and shake them. So they were shaken up over here. They didn't trust each other. Right? And now when they're planning for a foreign attack, bonacasa are not cooperating with them. Now, what do we see over here? That the enemy the machico they were filled with fear. Right? Their hearts were full of fear. They were afraid that the manipulator were going to betray them, but the files are going to betray them. They have 4000 of their men over here. What if everybody turns against them? Already? They have lost so many of their people in the previous battles. How many more

00:39:10--> 00:39:27

are they going to lose? You understand? So their hearts are full of fear. They had been running out of their resources, their plan was not working out. And also at the same time the weather became very, very severe. Remember, it was wintertime? Anybody visited Medina and winter.

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

I was it.

00:39:30--> 00:39:59

Exactly. It is freezing cold. It is so cold. It's unbelievably cold, especially the wind because it's dry, chilly. I remember one time we went to Medina. It was wintertime when we thought perfect. You know, wintertime you go to Saudi Arabia, it's the perfect time to go because you're not going to be hot. But at fighter time when you're walking to the masjid and the cold wind hits you it really gets inside of you literally it

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

gets inside of you.

00:40:02--> 00:40:44

Exactly, just like here. So anyway, the weather was very severe, and huge dishes and everything turning over their tents were getting ripped off. And the Chilean wind, the bitter cold. Basically, it broke their spirits. And the machine were thinking about quitting. They were thinking about going away. This was Friday night. Because remember Friday evening was when it came out was sent to by Nicola Nicola said, No, we're not fighting tomorrow, move it to Sunday. All right. And now Friday night, it was very, very severe cold weather. And in this time, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he asked his companions, that who is going to go to the side of the machine, so basically across the

00:40:44--> 00:40:51

trench, who is going to go in this cold, windy night? And see what the plan of them which deikun is?

00:40:52--> 00:40:56

What are they planning to do? Are they going to attack tomorrow? What's going on?

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

You know, how many Muslims volunteered zero.

00:41:02--> 00:41:23

The prophets analyzer again said, who will go to the side of the enemy, and find out what they're doing. And whoever goes, Allah will make him with me. Allah will place him with me on the Day of Judgment, he will be my companion on the Day of Judgment. Again, not a single to hobby volunteered.

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

Because the weather was

00:41:27--> 00:42:05

severe, severe weather. And by this time, even the Muslims they were hungry, they were exhausted, because many days they had spent in digging the trench or now many days and nights they had spent guarding the trench and over overall, there was so much fear and worry, they were drained. They were drained. So again, normal, some volunteer the third time the prophets, Allah loves him as nobody volunteered. And then the prophets on laws and him said to her, they follow the law and who are they go? Now they follow the law, or No, he didn't have a choice because before everybody had a choice, right? If you volunteer, you go, but now they follow the law and who he could not volunteer. Now he

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

was being assigned this task.

00:42:08--> 00:42:19

You understand? So now he could not say no, I know I'm not going to go he didn't have an option. So who they found on the lower end who he went in the extreme cold

00:42:20--> 00:42:36

across the trenches, or on the other side of the enemy, he found attentive also Fianna wearables have a fan was holding a meeting with his people. And he went and sat with them. And they felt alone. And he said that i i could easily, you know, attack, I was a fan and kill him

00:42:37--> 00:43:15

easily and and two or three times he thought of doing that. But then he remembered the profits of the losses that I had instructed him especially that to be very, very discreet and not do anything. All right. So they felt really alone when he sat amongst them. And they were talking amongst each other. And I was a fan. He said to his people, that it is very cold. We don't even have a house to protect us. I mean, we're sitting in tents over here. There are no houses, the weather is severe. And I think we should all return. So I was a fan is the one who's suggesting this whatever you say I'm going anyway. And Abu Sufyan he got up,

00:43:16--> 00:43:31

reached out to his gamma, whatever and he got onto it and he left and when he left, everybody else started packing up and going away. And at this point for the for the lower end, he went back to the Muslims, he went to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he found the Prophet sallallahu Sallam performing sutra.

00:43:32--> 00:43:59

And because it was so cold, they've had a blow on who he was, he was quite cold. And next to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam next to his feet was a blanket. During his prayer, the prophet SAW the laws and gesture to her they take this blanket, sir, they follow the law and who he, you know, got inside the blanket. And he waited for the prophets that allows him to finish his prayers. And when he finished her they felt the Lord who gave him the good news. And then her they felt alone who fell asleep.

00:44:00--> 00:44:07

And he said, I fell asleep. I slept for so long that eventually the prophets of Allah said him he woke me up and he said, Get up or heavy sleeper.

00:44:08--> 00:44:21

And this isn't so he Muslim. Her they followed the Lord who said that when I when I left, meaning when he had gone to the sight of the enemy, he said that I felt warm as if I was walking in a heated bath.

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

As if I was walking through a hammam you know like a sauna.

00:44:28--> 00:44:33

In that extreme cold he said that I felt as though I was walking through a hammer.

00:44:34--> 00:44:48

And then on his way back Of course he got cold and then the prophets of Allah said and gave him his blanket in which he slept until the morning. In a hadith and Buhari we learned the prophets a little Hudson said no seems to be Saba will only get on with

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

that I have been made victorious by a sada a supervisor is a wind. So over here in Las puntata sent a wind against the enemy in order to break

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

Your spirits and because of that the enemy fled. This is also mentioned into little Azerbaijan, even Edina M and with Kuru near Matala, here Aleikum, it just continued on for hours and narrowly in Rehan. word you knew then learn total, that all believers remember the blessing of Allah on you. The entire

00:45:22--> 00:45:48

experience of ourselves, the Battle of ourselves was what? It was very painful, very stressful. But what does Allah say? Remember the blessing on you. When armies came to you, and we sent against them, a wind, a severe wind, and we sent against them armies that you did not see. Who are these armies, the angels,

00:45:49--> 00:45:52

Los Altos and angels against the enemy, because you see,

00:45:54--> 00:46:03

the enemy camped outside Medina, but what happened? Their hearts are full of fear. They came so determined to have 10,000 men yet they're afraid what happened over here?

00:46:04--> 00:46:10

So the angels, they cast fear into the hearts of the enemy, weaken them internally.

00:46:11--> 00:46:23

All of a sudden now or lay him Rehan. What do you do the Land Rover? And we see over here the machine. They came in the month of shovel, all right, fifth year after digital, and they left in the month of the quarter.

00:46:25--> 00:46:36

So how many days were they over there? an entire month basically. Right? And this whole experience was utter disgrace for them.

00:46:37--> 00:46:42

Because 10,000 people come and they manage to kill less than 10 people.

00:46:44--> 00:47:28

They sit waiting for an entire month and what do they achieve? Nothing. This was utter disgrace for them. In the Quran. Allah says what the law who lived in a Kaffir will be layli him lemina do Hydra that Allah repelled the disbelievers with their anger, meaning they came in anger, they left in anger and they did not obtain any good worker for local minima, PETA, and Allah will suffice the believers in battle, meaning whenever the Muslims are in battle, a loss penalty will be sufficient for them. Because you see, the Quraysh did not come alone. They came with the people have a lot of fun with other tribes. They had the blue courage on their side, which allies did the Muslims have?

00:47:29--> 00:48:01

Which allies did they have? No human allies right? But who was on their side unless a penalty worker for low menial work can a level to weaken or Aziza and Allah is strong and mighty? In Buhari there is a hadith in which we learned that when the Azov were driven away. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, From now onwards, we will go to attack them. And they will not come to attack us. Atlanta, no zoo, while a ozuna.

00:48:02--> 00:48:11

Now they're never going to try to come and fight us. They tried it brother, they tried it or her. Right. And then the second brother, all right, and now

00:48:13--> 00:48:51

but they failed. Now what's going to happen now necesito la him now we're going to travel to them. We're going to go to Makkah, and we're going to fight them. And that's exactly what happened. That after the Battle of Azov, literally the Thai changed, it completely changed. You see that eventually then the Muslims went for Ramadan, that inshallah we will learn about the Treaty of her davia was made. And then eventually what happened was the Muslims conquered. Makkah. Right. So Isaiah was very, very difficult, emotionally, mentally, physically, it was exhausting, financially also exhausting.

00:48:53--> 00:49:04

And you see in the previous battles, who was affected by the battle, only those who participated in the battle, those who went to bother those who went to Earth, but in the Battle of gab, every single Muslim was involved.

00:49:05--> 00:49:16

Right? Because everyone participated in the digging of the trench in guarding the trench either in the morning or in the night or they had to go guard the fortresses, right? Every Muslim was involved.

00:49:17--> 00:49:29

It was stressful for the entire Muslim community exhausting for them at every level. But what happened you know, when you reach the peak of pain of hardship, that is when

00:49:30--> 00:49:33

ease comes right. That is when things change.

00:49:35--> 00:49:59

So even though as I was very difficult, but we see that this is where, where things changed completely after this. Now, we learned that when the machine left the job left in a decent Buhari, we learned that when the profit or loss in return from the handle, right, he left the dock now for the first time, they could actually leave the dock. All right, the Muslims returned home, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he went to his house and

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

He laid down his arms, he put down his weapons in order to take a bath.

00:50:06--> 00:50:49

Because they have been digging the trench guarding the trench, muddy, dusty, all over, exhausted. So the prophets have a lot of sense of when to take a bath. And at that time, debris will came and he said, the other sort of law you have put down your weapons, beating, why have you done that? By Allah, we angels have not put them down yet. We were still ready, meaning the war is not over. It's not over yet. So set out for them. The Prophet said, a lot of them said were to go meaning for Who are we to go and fight and to breathe, he said towards this side, and he pointed towards where the button Corella were to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he made his way to the bundle paraiba he made

00:50:49--> 00:51:27

his way himself. And he also instructed the Muslims to make their way to the bundle karela we learned that on the day of examining the day when the enemies left the prophets on the laws and said to the Muslims, none of you should offer us a prayer except at the place of the new karela meaning get there before us that is over. And when you reach there, prayer will meet over there. Don't delay at all. And so what happened when the Muslims left for binuclear Allah also came in some of them got late, some Muslims they said the Prophet sallallahu Sallam didn't want us to miss our prayer. Right? The purpose was to get there before us or ends we couldn't make it. So that's his prayer. I said and

00:51:27--> 00:52:00

then go there. And the other said that no, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Did not he told us very clearly we should only pay us when we get to Bukhara so some Muslims they prayed. And the other Muslims they did not pray when they reached when we could do that is when they prayed and when they told the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about this, he didn't objected anybody. So anyway, I need alone and who was the first one to reach the blue gorilla. And as soon as you reach there, he raised the flag of Islam, the bonobo Rayleigh basically they lock themselves up in their fortresses. And they began hurling abuses at the Muslims. And when the prophet SAW a lot of them arrived, already left

00:52:00--> 00:52:09

alone and who rushed to him to tell him to camp far away from the fortresses of the bazooka because he did not want the profits that allows him to hear those bad words.

00:52:11--> 00:52:15

He didn't want the profits that allows them to hear what the banal corretto were saying about him.

00:52:16--> 00:52:24

Because of the love that he had for the loss of the loss, and the profits that allows him set to rally the little aren't what that once they will see me they will stop.

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

They will not be able to say those words anymore, and that's exactly what happened. Once they saw him, their mouths completely shut. They didn't have the confidence to her anymore abuses undersuit Allah sallallahu sallam, the prophets, Allah loves them as the bundle called Allah to surrender. But what happened the VA nakoda outright refused. So what happened the Muslims now said camp outside the Banu corretta fortresses, you see what's going on over here.

00:52:55--> 00:52:56

Previously,

00:52:57--> 00:53:06

they were besieged For how many days 25 to 30 or 40 days. And now the Muslims were laying siege

00:53:07--> 00:53:15

For how many days? It wasn't just It started with hours which turned into days which turned into weeks, which turned into 25 to 30 days.

00:53:16--> 00:53:43

So you see almost the exact amount of time that the Muslims were besieged. Now Allah subhanaw taala is giving them a chance to lay siege to their enemy. And then eventually we learned that the Banu karela surrendered and they were dealt with and inshallah we will learn about that. In our next session. inshallah subchronic alone will be handed to a lair Illa illa Anta Mr. Furukawa to break Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
