lesson number 219. So we'll begin from number 22.
What a mela minal azova. And when the believers saw the,
when they saw the companies, the armies, the groups that have come
in the previous if we have been learning about them, What are 15? What was their behavior? When they saw the, they were frightened. They were extremely afraid. They were discouraged and they began discouraging other people. They presented excuses, and they abandon the Muslims. They didn't look at the example of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, rather they looked at one another, who were weak.
On the other hand, the believers, what was their reaction?
Well, America, me noon, Allah zabba when the believers are the ALU they said, Have MLR done Allahu Allah, Sulu. This is what Allah and His Messenger promised us. This is exactly what Allah and His Messenger promised us what
tests difficulties, challenges, hardships.
Isn't this a promise that Allah subhanaw taala has made with us has an almost panel data set and has everything under the hood agenda? What am I Tikka Masala Dena Holloman publikum masa tomo, set up the law with Zulu intrarater Baqarah 214 that you think that you will enter Paradise. While such trial has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you.
They were touched by poverty and hardship and they were shaken.
So when the believers when they saw the AR that they said this is exactly what align is messenger promised us
instead of Muhammad I 31. Well, an evolution compared to an animal Mujahideen iminco was savarino whenever you were about to come, and we will surely test you until we make evidence those who strive among you for the cause of Allah and those who are patient, and we will test your affairs, we are not going to leave you we're going to test your affairs in sort of earlier Emraan io 179 McCann Allah who the other almina Allah and Allah he had diames a kabisa mean of the year that alone would not leave the believers in that state you were in presently until he separates the evil from the good. So what do we say that Allah has promised the believers that they will face difficulties, they
will face trials? difficulties trials are what are part of life. A lady Hola, como tal hayata. Why? So that you enjoy the upper lower cone so that he can test you?
Allah tested His prophets. He tested his loved ones, and he tests the believers. So when the believers saw the exam, they said this is exactly what Allah and His Messenger have promised us.
This is expected
this is not something that was not part of the contract. No. What do we learn in zero Toba in a lodge Amina Medina and for someone what I'm while I'm on the agenda
and then what has been said you caught
fire Kota Luna.
So the believers when they face difficulty when they face trials, they don't say okay, why is it so tough? Why again, we just had a break. We hardly got through one thing, another test another difficulty? No, they know this is a part of life.
Call you have our Arden Allahu Allah soon. And they say was sada con la Hoya Zulu. And allied has messenger has spoken truth, meaning about the promise of tests and trials. They spoke the truth and they fulfill this promise and this test this difficulty has come upon us. Woman azada home Illa. Eman and with a slimmer and it did not increase them except in faith and submission, faith Eman And what in unless promises
and email also otherwise, that when they experience a test, when they experience the difficulty, it increases them in their email.
And also what the sliema also in submission submission to what submission to the command of Allah. submission to the decree of Allah. submission to the decision of Allah subhanaw taala. What do we see over here
that tests difficulties, trials, hardships, what are they a part of life and a believer when he experiences difficulties when he experiences any tests? He doesn't say this was unexpected. He doesn't say This is unfair. No. He knows that this is something that a lot of pantalla had promised.
He accepts it. And acceptance is the first step to success.
Because if you don't accept, then will you work to be successful? No. If you don't accept if you're in denial, if you keep saying no, no, I don't accept that this is unfair, this was never part of the package, then what will happen, you will never be able to concentrate on what you're supposed to do.
So acceptance is the first step to success. And the words of acceptance are what that have them are, then Allahu Allah subhana wa Sadako, that this is exactly what was promised. And Allah has spoken the truth, the messenger has spoken the truth. And we see that there are two outcomes off a test, a difficulty a trial, what are they?
That one is that a person through the tests through the difficulties, he becomes more firm, he becomes stronger, he improves, he learns, he increases in his courage in his confidence.
And because of that he has the confidence to face greater trials, greater difficulties.
If you manage to pass one test, can you pass the next one? Yes, you can.
Because you have gone a step higher.
It has made you stronger, it has made you more capable. And when you're more capable, then only are you qualified to take the next step. But if you don't even take the first test, are you qualified to take the next one?
No, you cannot.
Which is why we see that, for instance, if a person is regularly doing their tests every day, which ones doing the lesson regularly?
Then when it comes to taking the written test, is it possible for them to do it easily? Yes.
But if a person is not doing the regular tests, when it comes to the written test, can they do it? No. You may have experienced this yourself as well.
So there are two outcomes of a test. One is that a person gets stronger, he becomes better than the home even with a Sleeman and the other is that a person goes lower. He gets discouraged. And he goes towards failure. Why? Because he just doesn't accept it. He says no, I cannot do it.
And that is the first step towards downfall.
He says I cannot do it. I'm not going to do this. That's it. I'm walking away. I'm leaving this.
So who are the believers who accept the difficulty? And when a person accepts it, then Allah subhanaw taala gives them the trophy as well.
Mina Mina de Jalan among the believers are men that are jealous of Florida. Roger. among the believers are such men, that sort of who they were truthful, in what manner I had a law I lay in that which they promised Allah, meaning the promises that they made with Allah subhanaw taala. They proved them true, how that they fulfill them.
Whatever they said that, oh, Allah subhanaw taala. I'm going to do this for you. I'm going to do this. I don't want to do this. What did they do? They actually did it. They didn't go back on their word. sada Kumara de la la he, whatever promises they made, they fulfilled them, for men home, so among them, Mankato, nabba, who who fulfilled his vow, although to complete to fulfill and Navajo noon have a nap. And that means about a pledge and it also gives a meaning of death. It also gives meaning of crying. Over here however it gives meaning of vow or pledge.
And O'Donoghue is when a person fulfills his vow when he fulfills his promise. And it's also used for when a person passes away when a person dies, because that is also like fulfilling a pledge that every person has been given a fixed period of time to live when he fulfills that when it's over then it says look O'Donoghue
so for men whom man Katana, who among them is He who has fulfilled his promise of what of striving in the way of Allah soprano Tada. And as a result, he has passed away he has achieved Shahada martyrdom,
woman whom and of them, my young little is one who awaits you until little known law. intelligence as we know is to wait for something to anticipate. So among them are those who have already fulfilled their vows and among the believers are those who are still waiting to fulfill their
Will my bad diluted dealer, but they have not altered any alteration meaning they did not change their promise their commitment even slightly, even a little bit. They haven't yet fulfilled their promise but they intend to deliver
Videla, whatever they made with a loss of Pantanal, they haven't altered that in any way they intend to fulfill it.
Now, this ayah, it has been said that it was revealed concerning those companions who were not able to participate in the Battle of bed.
Remember the Battle of others, many Sahaba participated, however many others weren't able to participate. And that was because of genuine reasons. Many Sahaba weren't able to participate, like for example, risk management, often, his wife was at the verge of dying, so he wasn't able to go, he wasn't able to participate. And along with him, don't have an evade the law sir evens aid, there were other companions as well as in another, they weren't able to participate in the Battle of others.
Now, those who participated in the Battle of others, who were martyred, who passed away, they're highly praised.
What do we learn about them? that those who participate in the Battle of butter, their rank is much higher, because it was a first battle first expedition.
Now imagine the state of those companions who weren't able to participate, how would they feel
that we are behind?
So they wanted to make up for it somehow? So they made promises with a loss apprentice, that Yeah, Allah, if you give me the fee to participate in battle, I will do my best, and I do will attend Shahada.
And we learned that unnecessarily there are no he said that my paternal uncle, and has been another after whom I was named, was not present with this messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam at better.
And this distressed him.
And he said, the first battle at which the Messenger of Allah was present, and I was absent. First Battle, he was present and I was absent. If Allah shows me another battle with the Messenger of Allah, Allah will see what I will do.
What does he mean by that?
That I will do my best. And I will also do as well as those who participated in battle. He did not want to say more than that. And he was present with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam at a hotel. But then he missed after that, he made a promise, I'm going to do my best. So I had, he was present, where he met Sarah even more. And so the one who said to him, Oh, where are you going? He replied, I longed for the fragrance of Paradise, and I have found it near the mountain of godhood. So what happened then, he fought the machine until he was killed.
So and so they learn him, and then another, he wasn't able to participate at others.
So what happened at HUD he went and he fought vigilantly until he passed away. And it is said that 80 stab wounds and spear wounds were found on his body. Just imagine it.
At you have one cut on your hand. And it says though, you cannot wash your hands you cannot do will do you cannot cook in the kitchen. You cannot change your kids diapers, isn't it? One cut on your hand at wounds on his body. And it was almost impossible to recognize him and his sister recognized him by his fingertips.
This is how she managed to recognize him otherwise his body was it was impossible to recognize it. So this I was revealed that Miguel Medina regeneron. among the believers are those who saw the Kumara de la Harney who fulfilled their vows that they made with a loss of predator. They proved them true how
that for men who Mankato, Navajo, among them are those who have already fulfilled their vows.
When the missed brother they said they were going to do as well. When OSHA came, they fought, and they fulfilled their promise how they fought in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Some of them they attained martyrdom. But others were men who may until if among them are some who are still waiting for another opportunity, which is why they were present. 100 no matter how difficult it was, they didn't stay behind. They didn't go back home. And even now, if still they're waiting to fulfill their promise with Allah, wa but the truth of the matter, even after having gone through the severe experience of conduct, have they changed their mind? And they said, no, maybe I'll do something else
or less forgiving, be so generous, he can reward anyway. I'll spare myself from this difficulty. No one ever diluted the data. They have not changed their minds at all. They're still determined to work hard in the way of
what do we learn from this? That a believer has very high goals? One who wants to please Allah subhanaw taala he can never be settled with less. He can everything what I'm doing is sufficient. I don't need to do any more. No. He has high gold
Just imagine the Sahaba who weren't able to participate it but then what did they want another opportunity that they could fight so that they could sacrifice their lives in the way of a loss.
Then something great, huge, a big deal. And we see that one battle after the participated Why? Just to gain Shahada and if they weren't able to get Shahada did they give up? They didn't give up. Whenever dilute Abdullah they didn't change their mind at all. Not even slightly. You see, many times it happens that we make a big promise with ourselves with the loss of penalty. I want to please Allah. I want to become a good person. This is what I'm going to do. We started doing it, it becomes difficult. Many times what happens people discourage us or our enough discourages us and we think Allah Zilla photo Rahim he's generous, he can reward me anyway. I won't continue with this.
But a person who wants the pleasure of Allah Will he ever discontinue? Will he ever leave? Will you ever stop? No. Despite the challenges, despite the difficulties, he will not stop.
If it's impossible for him to do one thing, he will do another but he will never ever fall back woman but Duluth abdillah.
Don't change your mind. Don't settle with less.
Jenna is expensive. attaining a loss penalties pleasure is a big deal. And you have to do a lot for that. Leah Josie Allahu cytopenia beside him that allows me reward the truthful for their truth. Those who are truthful, Allah subhanaw taala will reward them for their truth, how that they fulfill their promise. And the edges here, this lamb, it means that this battle of conduct this took place so that allowed me to reward those who were truthful. Meaning this was an opportunity provided for the Muslims so that they could fulfill their promise.
They could prove their word, they could prove their commitment.
When we face a difficulty, we think this is unfair. But in reality, what is it an opportunity to attain closeness to a loss of
an opportunity to prove true? All those big claims we have been making? I will be patient I will spend in the way of Allah. I will not get tired. I will do this. I will do that. It's an opportunity. The physiological side Athena is looking for their patience for fulfilling their promises.
When you are available when our Filipina and he may punish the hypocrites. In Sha if he wills Alia to Berlin he or he can turn in mercy to them who do the hypocrites when if they do Toba then a lot also will turn in mercy to them in the law can have a food on rahima Indeed Allah, He is forgiving, and He is merciful.
So what is this ayah show to us? That the Battle of conduct didn't take place for no reason.
When we look at these battles, what do we think, these mushrikeen these yahood they just didn't let the Prophet sallallaahu sudden do his work, creating hurdles for him. But we see that in fact, it was an opportunity for who for the believers to be distinguished from those who were more than 15 an opportunity for the believers to fulfill their promises, to prove their Eman to prove their commitment.
And also something that distinguish the NFL team from the rest of the believers, for people to realize their faults.
Because what happens at a time of difficulty in a test, you really get an inside, look into yourself, you get an inside view of yourself.
Because in daily routine, in normal circumstances, you're so occupied with looking outside that you don't reflect on yourself. But in difficult situations, what is truly inside comes outside. And then you see I have this fault, I have that fault. I'm weak here, I'm weak there. So these opportunities, these situations, they give you a chance to look into yourself. So many people realized over here that they still suffered from weakness of faith, because they followed who the Muna 15
they got fooled by them, they got impressed by them.
And they didn't look at the example of the profits or a lot of sudden
and those who are going after theme, also so that it would become clear to them that they're suffering from hypocrisy. So when you're available moon Africa insha Allah tuvar lay him in the law kind of afford Allah Hema, who is he forgiving towards those who turn to him?
What the law will lead in a cafaro will be lazy him and a lot of rebels
Those who disbelieved in their rage alladhina cafaro, what does it refer to? Who are they?
all of the Zaboo came against the Muslims. Allah subhanaw taala he repelled them, he returned them sent them back home, how be labeling him with their anger. They came with a lot of anger. And they left with a lot of anger.
They came with a lot of anger against the Muslims. And when they left, they left with more anger, in fact, be raised with him in their rage. lemenager Ohio, they did not attain any good. They did not obtain any good they achieved nothing, no victory, no booty, no wealth, nothing lamea nallo hierarchy and arrows on the roof heifers. lunia. Lamb nail, a nail is to get hold of something to achieve something. They didn't get a hold of anything, lemonade.
In fact, they suffered, in what way?
Imagine 10,000 soldiers how much they must have spent, how much of the resources would have been exhausted in supplying for that army.
And they didn't make do with less. They ate lavishly. They spent lavishly, it was only the Sahaba who managed to work with stones tied to their stomachs. But the enemy they ate day in and day out. They brought with them a lot of animals, a lot of resources, and all of that wasted, wasted because they didn't achieve anything. So instead of gaining this effort from a great loss, financial loss, and not just financial loss, but many of their people also were killed. Because those who managed to cross the trench What happened to them? They were killed. Our little denardo killed them. Many others habit they shot arrows at them. So lemon and Ohio. They didn't attain anything. Instead they
suffered they went back an accomplished
worker for Laguna mini Nikita and Allah. He is sufficient for the believers in what in the battle? A lie sufficient for them. His aid is enough. The believers didn't have a lot of ammunition. A lot of weapons. No, they didn't have a lot of people, a lot of manpower. They didn't have a lot of supplies. Who did they have a loss upon return on their side?
worker for LA menino. Kita what can Allahu COVID Aziza and Allah He is ever police strong and he's zzS mighty, that Allah subhanaw taala to help them. And the believers were helped in many, many ways.
Just that one example I gave you of the story of jabil the learner, that how he prepared some food for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and it was enough for all of the believers who came everyone ate to their food, everyone.
This was special help from Allah subhanaw taala. Physically they had less, but they had the help of Allah soprano.
Similarly, that huge rock, that they were unable to break through the prophets that a lot of enemy came and broken and the believers were given such good news, a future victory.
And then a lot of panel data sent his help in the form of noraim Urbanus Earth becoming a Muslim,
that he became a Muslim. He kept his Islam secret, he came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he told him to create discord between the enemies. And what happened. He created discord between the tribes of fan, the machine of courage, and also the yahood. And as a result, they were disunited. They didn't trust one another. In fact, they began to fear one another, which is why they were so discouraged that when the wind came, they left and another form of the help of Allah subhanaw taala was that violent wind?
So worker, follow me Okay, Dan. If you have the help of Allah, then you have everything.
You have everything worker for LaHood, mini LP tile. What can aloha Korean Aziza
you see many times when we're doing something, what do we look at? I don't have that much strength. I'm very weak in my body. I'm very weak in my resources. I'm very weak in my situation, my circumstances. But the thing is that if you want to do something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And you consider it as your responsibility that you have to do it, you cannot avoid it, that Allah will give you strength. He will give you strength. And believe me, you cannot get the strength from anywhere, nowhere else.
You can take 1000 supplements, dietary supplements that will not give you enough energy as a crumb of Allah will give you energy. But this has to become your source of energy, your source of strength. If you have this, you have everything. And if you don't have this you have nothing. What if Allahu Minnie Nikita What can I love?
collegian Aziza he is powerful, he is mighty.
So what do we say in this ayah that Allah subhanaw taala he helped the believers and those who came against the believers, what happened to them, they went back as failures and accomplished having in nothing, in fact, having suffered a lot. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he prayed he made there are at this time, that Allahumma munzee Okita Saudi Arabia has a azim in
a loving Muslim home was a little home. There are a lot revealer of the book, swift color to account during the Confederates to flight during them to flight and caused them to quake. And this actually happened, his daughter was accepted that Allah subhanaw taala caused them to quake that they were shaken out with the distrust that was planted by noraim even was rude. And also they were shaken by the weather conditions. So the Prophet said a lot of sudden prayed to Allah Zima Zeb Allahumma, Zimmerman was zil home, and they were turned to fight. They left in order to save their lives. We see that the Quraysh what happened to them was that they decided to leave because there was a chance
that he cannot handle this anymore. And he got up to leave and I said to him, you will leave while your people are still here. So it was a fan he felt bad he stayed and then the people they got ready to leave and then he left along with them.
And when they went to check of the tribes of what the fan was still there, they had already left without even getting.
So they were put to flight this was a hell of a loss of power Tada. This is how Allah helps his servants through means of unseen
means of unseen at Battle of conduct wasn't really a battle. It was just that they had laid siege the Muslims were defending themselves and who's helped it to have a las pantallas home.
What ends Ellen Levine alojado home min Aaron kitabi min CRC him and he brought down those who supported them among the People of the Scripture from their fortresses. While other few kulu became a verb, and he cast terror into their hearts for the conduct to Luna with that sirona Federica so that a party you killed and you took captive a party. What this is I refer to how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam dealt with the new charisma. Remember that the new codesa there were a Jewish tribe, who were in Medina. And when the Prophet sallallaahu Sena migrated to Medina, he made a treaty with who all of the people of Medina whether they were Muslims, mushrikeen or they were your
And part of the treaty was what that everyone will defend Medina, every person who will defend within
that if anyone attacks Medina, whether you are Muslim or not, what do you have to do?
defend the city. Now, what happened when the zap came? The Jews who had come from fiber Wi Fi, they went and spoke to bonacasa.
And they said, we're gonna come and finish these Muslims. You know, why are you going to side with them? Don't side with them.
So the who the winner karela What happened? They broke their treaty with the profits.
They openly broke it openly.
And we see that when the profits are a lot is that unheard of this betrayal. He sent him of his companion sourthern rabada. And they've been Murat, the two chiefs of Osen has Raj to go and investigate whether they had actually broken the treaty or not.
So what happens are the Avada and sourthern Mirage, both of them they went. And to their amazement, they found out that the situation was even worse, that it wasn't just they had violated the treaty. They had broken it openly broken it. But they were also insulting the Prophet. So
they were speaking very critically of the prophets on the laws and very critically of the Muslims. And they said, Who is the prophet of God, we have no backdoor pledge with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam whereas in reality, they had a pact with him. They had a pledge with him. And this was a political fact of political pledge. So they broke it. And what happened? In the meanwhile, the Muslims, they were extremely threatened. Why? Because the men were were they, at the front at the trenches guarding who was in the houses in the city, the old the women, the children on one side of the city where the mountains that were naturally protecting the city, but on the other side were who the
fortresses Are these your hood,
and now all of a sudden, they have violated the treaty with the Prophet subtleness. And I'm anytime what could happen.
They could come and attack the Muslims. They could come and attack the Muslims in their homes and at the same time, they were in
Contact with who, with the machine who had camped outside of the trenches, and they were actually communicating with them. And the machine we're planning to attack Medina from that side of the city from the side of binoculars, but for some reason or the other, they weren't able to. Every time that they decided they were going to attack from there, something would happen. And eventually I lost count on a centenarian it was rude. And what did he do? He planted seeds of discord between these people. That Balu called Eva, they began mistrusting the machine the machine began mistrusting the burner called Ella, and as a result, they could never work together. So the machine weren't able to
attack from that side. But this put the Muslims in an extremely difficult and vulnerable situation. The families were in difficulty the women children,
and at a time when they should be defending the city, what are they doing betraying the rest of the citizens?
So what happened then, after the Azov left, the Azov left, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the Muslims, you can go home. So they went home. And what happened? We learned that jabril came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he asked him a prophet of God, have you put aside your arms? When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam replied that he had gibreel say, but the angels have not yet laid down their arms, because remember a loss of hunter altars and these denude Judah lambda over there are also participating in the battle. So the set of the profits are a lot of fun, and we have not yet put down our arms. Allah commands you to march towards the nuclear ala, where I will also go there
to Trump and federalism, I will also go in spread fear amongst them, make them frightened. So you have been commanded to go over there. So what happened? The Prophet said a lot of them he sent word to all of the Muslims. They said we have to go to the place where the binaries are that part of the city. And don't pray us until you get there.
So imagine the machine the left by night.
In the morning, the Muslims found out, okay, the machine have left, everybody's gone. The profits out of Alison send some Sahaba check. Everybody had gone. They came back they told the Prophet said a lot of them and what happened he told the people go home, no, it's over.
There, go home and buy us some time. They have to go and deal with open.
Imagine a month they were besieged. And now when they're hungry, tired, cold, exhausted, when you want to have a nice warm shower and just rest and sleep and eat. What are they told? We have to go and deliver no clever. What did they do?
What did the Muslims do? Did they go? Of course they did. And they went and the Banu colada, they had many fortresses. So what happened? They lock themselves up in the fortresses. And the Muslims, they laid siege. And the siege was there for 25 days.
Can you imagine 30 days they were besieged 25 days, they have besieged the hood.
And obviously, the new Corolla they had to be dealt with. This was treachery, this was betrayal. This was not something small.
Instead of cooperating with the citizens of that city, what were they doing betraying them, putting their lives at risk, putting their lives in danger, cooperating with the enemy.
So what happened, the profits are a lot of sudden, he had to decide as to what to do with them, and who was appointed to decide with regard to these people what to do with them, sorry, even on the lower
side even more odd. He had relations with the yahood before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, remember that the two tribes of Medina they would always fight with one another.
And they had allies from who from the hood. So one tribe of the Arabs had made allies with one tribe of the hood. And they both supported one another in this way. Society been rather than are known, he was a leader of his tribe, and he had alliances with the EU previously. But because of this treachery, this great treachery started with Murat, we see that he was extremely furious, and he got injured in the battle, we learned that he was at the trench, and someone from the machine, shot an arrow and it hits out really learn him on his arm, and it injured him very badly. His vein got caught, and as a result, he was bleeding continuously. So in that extreme pain, he said that he will
make a decision against them and he prayed to Allah subhanaw taala that, Oh Allah give me the ability to do something with them. And that don't let me die until I have dealt with these people until I have done what I'm supposed
society when rod was appointed to make a decision with regards to them. And we see that he gave his decision that I decided that the men should be killed, and the property divided and the women and children taken as captives, the men of bonacasa should be killed. The women and children should be taken as captives. And their property should be divided, meaning it should be considered as war booty.
Now, many people, they find this decision extremely wrong. And they think it was a great injustice committed against those who who was it injustice, think about it. What crime did they commit?
What crime did they commit of treachery. This was not an ordinary fact.
They had made a pact with the political leader. It's like you make a pact with the president of the country, that you will abide by the rules. And what happens, you betrayed and you put the life of every citizen in danger.
What happens when someone is caught on account of some Terrorism Act? That they haven't even done it? But they're caught before that? What happens? Are they forgiven?
Or they're treated with a lot of honor and forgiveness? No, they're kept in jail, isn't it, they're interrogated, they're punished. And many times, eventually, they're killed. Now, they were putting the life of every single citizen of Medina, endangered by their treachery, by their insults, they insulted the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they insulted the Muslims. This was not something small, and decided with who with the enemy.
And this decision was made by Assad even more actively learn him. So he made this decision, and the who they accepted it. They accepted this decision, because after 25 days, they were besieged and they said, okay, we accept your decision. Now do with us whatever you want to, they gave up at the end. Because this decision actually goes with their law.
It goes with their law. We learned in the book of Deuteronomy, verse 10, to 14, that it is mentioned, that when you come into a city to fight against it, then proclaimed peace and open unto them shall be that all the people that is found there in shall be tributaries unto thee, but will make war against the meaning they will fight against you, then you shall besieged the city. And when the Lord your God has delivered it into your hands, you shall smite every male there off with the edge of the sword, but the women and the little ones, and the capital, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil their off, shall you take onto yourself, and you shall eat the spoil of your
enemy, which that Lord thy God has given you.
So what do we see basically, that in their book, they have been commanded that when you come in order to fight the particular city, make peace, offer peace, if it doesn't work, then lay siege, when you lay siege, then what will happen when you get a hold of those people, kill the men, and take the women and children as captives and divide the property amongst yourselves.
So this was a decision according to their book, and this isn't just mentioned once, but mentioned many times in different ways in their book.
So this has made a very big deal today. And overtime it has we made a very big deal. This was injustice against boca de la, and they weren't really guilty. And this was extremely unfair. Look, all the men killed the women children enslaved. It's made into a very big deal.
But if you think about it, why was it done? What crimes did they commit huge crime, major crime. So they had to be punished. So this is what is being mentioned over here. That what ends that are levinas law Overman Allen kitabi

There were unzila he brought down brought down from where means is Lee him from their fortresses. Who did he bring down? And Medina la hora home.

wakad of eukanuba himmelfarb. And he casts terror into their hearts. They were besieged, but they were frightened, afraid. So why were they afraid? Allah subhanaw taala put this fear into their hearts. And what happened? How did you deal with them? For the conductor, Luna, a group of them you killed meaning the men the combatants, what sirona for you? And you took a group as captives that serum from the roof actress, Hamza scene was a series used for a captive And who are they, the women and the children
come out of the home and he made you inherit their land, which land the land that they owned, because a big portion of money now obviously was populated by these people. But when they were killed, and there are women and children taken as captives, so their land came in whose hand and hand is the believers, their properties, their fortresses all of that came in the hands of Muslims.
So a lot of them were the out of home and their homes as well. What um while at home and also their wealth, what other than and also a land. Besides all of this that you have gained, Allah has also promised you an end which land lambda ooh ha, you have not yet run it. You have not yet gone there, that are all from the reflectors.

What can Allahu Eid aqualisa in Madeira and Allah over everything he is capable, he is competent, which land is is referring to
the land of labor,
the land of labor, because remember that it was the hood of labor, who had come and incited the machine of Makkah, and also the various tribes in Arabia against the Muslims, to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he dealt with Ubuntu corteza. Now the next thing was to deal with who
would the main troublemakers. So over here is a promise of future that very soon, you will conquer that land as well. And this happened very soon after the prophet SAW the Lotus and made his expedition to Haifa. And he was victorious over there.
So we see that the Muslims, they had gone through an extremely difficult test. But when you pass the test, what do you get? Good news, isn't it, you get your reward. And you also get good news. The Muslims, they got their award in the form of their booty. And they also received good news of future victories. And many future victories were
promised at this battle, like the victory of Hiva and not just labor but but Roman Persian. Remember that when the Prophet sallallaahu sin was breaking that rock.
So we see that up until now the Muslims were living in a lot of fear. They were constantly under attack. And now all of the hours I've had gone. But after this moment, after this point, what happened? The situation changed,
that the Muslims were not being attacked anymore. But rather what happened. They were the ones who could fight. Because the people realize that we cannot defeat them.
We see the machine did not come and attack the Muslims after this. They had the Battle of whether or had a handle and that's it. Now later on what happened, how they be the peace treaty was made. And after that, very soon after that, the Muslims, they conquered markcaswell. So we see that this was a turning point. The situation now completely changed. Up until now they were in fear from now onwards, the situation changed completely. And this was because they were patient. They didn't give up. They follow the way of the prophets that a lot is on them. And they pass the test with patients with insurance. This is an award of patience. This is an award of steadfastness that if you keep
