We'll begin from is number 67 Makana. It is not permissible, it is not possible. It is not conceivable that Lena beggin for any prophet of Allah and that you're gonna he would be Lahu for him meaning that a prophet of Allah who take what would he take a slaw prisoners which prisoners prisoners of war had that until youth Hina he inflicts a massacre, Fill only in the earth, in the land,

00:00:38 --> 00:01:24

to the donor, you all want honorable the commodities, the benefits of dunya of the world will Allah Who and Allah ut Ophira he wants the hereafter for you? Will Allah Who are these in Hakeem and Allah is the Mighty, the Wise, in this ayah and the following verses, the matter of the prisoners of war is mentioned, as you know that the battle of brother brought victory to the Muslims. And there were mainly two main concerns, main issues that came up first of all, with regards to the war booty. And secondly, with regards to the prisoners of war, as you know that in the battle, 70 of them which again were killed, and 70 of them were also taken as captives. And the word for captives is a straw,

00:01:24 --> 00:02:18

I saw is a floral of a seed from the letters Hamza seen raw, and a seed someone who is bound, meaning a prisoner, a captive, and it refers to the war captives over here. So in this ayah, what is mentioned that it is not possible, it is not conceivable that a prophet of Allah would fight. Why, just to take captives in war, that the objective becomes what? To take war captives. Just as previously, it was emphasized that the Muslims don't go to battle, just to make and file just to get war booty. Likewise, it is made clear here, that the motive of the Prophet when he goes to battle is not to get war captives. The purpose is far beyond that the purpose is far more important than just

00:02:18 --> 00:03:11

taking war captives. And what is that purpose? Youth cleaner Fill Out Youth cleaners from their letters, sir ha noon. Sahana is basically intense massacre, intense bloodshed. And this word is used over here to show that when there will be such massacre than what does it refer to that the power of the enemy is completely broken. So in other words, the purpose of battle is not to fight the enemy, take some of their wealth as booty and get some of them as prisoners of war. And later on, let them buy their freedom from you in exchange of ransom. But the purpose is to break the power of the enemy. Because if Muslims go to battle, they make some money by getting war booty, they get some

00:03:11 --> 00:03:54

prisoners and let them buy their freedom and make more money. Is that the purpose make money is that why the Muslims go to battle? Know Allah subhanaw taala is condemning that over here duty do not have a dunya you want the commodities of this life? Allah subhanaw taala wants something different for you. And what is that the benefit of the hereafter and the benefit of the Hereafter a person cannot have until and unless he can practice his religion freely. And the religion cannot be practiced if there are forces against the Muslims preventing them from practicing their religion. So it is clarified over here that when you go to battle, your intention should not be to make booty,

00:03:54 --> 00:04:38

your intention should not be to catch people and let them ransom themselves in exchange of money. Know your purpose is far beyond that. Now what happened was that when the prophets had a lot of return from budget, and there were those 70 captives with them, some of the captives, remember that there were great criminals meaning they were such individuals who had inflicted great harm upon the Muslims for all those years. Amongst them was a weapon of immortal who had also harmed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam physically abused him and not just that he had also spent a lot of money against Islam against many Muslims. So when these certain individuals were caught, they were not just taken

00:04:38 --> 00:04:51

to Medina, what was done, they were killed at brother. And they were basically obviously buried over there in one of the wells and the rest of the prisoners that were taken to Medina.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:59

The Prophet said a lot of Saddam he consulted the companions. What should we do with these prisoners of war? Romano litho and who are

00:05:00 --> 00:05:38

Obviously you can imagine he got up and he said, Oh prophets of Allah doesn't cut off their next finish all of them. These are enemies, Allah subhanaw taala has given dominance to us over them, so finish them off. But the Prophet salallahu Salam didn't like that idea. Because amongst the prisoners were those who were vehemently opposing Islam. And amongst the prisoners were also those who were kind of forced in that situation. Like, for example, the uncle of the Prophet salallahu, salam, our best little do Allahu Anhu. And there were other people also who had actually embraced Islam. But because of their tribal associations, they were not able to leave Makkah and come to

00:05:38 --> 00:06:18

Medina, they didn't have the heart to do that. They didn't want to give up their worldly prestige and honor. But their hearts accepted Islam, and the Muslims gained power over them. So the Prophet said a lot of Saddam didn't like the idea that everyone should be killed. And if you think about it, in a group of people, everybody is not at that same level of opposition. Right? Everyone does not have that same level of hatred. There are people who very so the prophets of awesome asked again, again or muddled, lower and who stood up and he said, kill them all. The prophets of Allah said him turn his face away. The third time he asked the same question again, Omar got up and he said, kill

00:06:18 --> 00:07:00

them all. The prophets, Allah Lawson, again looked away, then Abu Bakr, Abdullah or new he got up and he said, Let's just take them to Medina, and let them buy their freedom from us, meaning let their families send money to us in order to ransom them. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he liked that idea. Why? Because, first of all these people, their lives would be spared. Who knows they might be guided to Islam in the future. And that happened. Many of them, including the uncle of the prophets of Allah Salam embraced Islam did Hijra All right. And secondly, there was also some financial gain over here. Right? So this is a reason why the Prophet salallahu Salam liked that

00:07:00 --> 00:07:04

idea. And what happened the prisoners were taken to Medina.

00:07:05 --> 00:07:56

Allah subhanaw, Taala disapproved of this? Because the Muslims made this decision with consultation amongst themselves and they didn't wait for the ye to come. You understand? With regards to the booty, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he just told the Companions, this is neither yours nor is it mine. So put that sword down. It belongs to Allah. So we're going to wait for his decision concerning the booty. But what happened with the captives consultation? Decision was made, some were killed, some were taken to Medina. So Allah subhanaw taala reprimanded the Muslims for taking that matter in their own hands. And you see the prophets of Allah salaam he liked that decision that take

00:07:56 --> 00:08:44

the prisoners to Medina let them by their freedom. And the other Muslims were also interested in that. Why because there was financial gain. Okay, there was financial gain. But Allah subhanaw taala reprimanded the Muslims that duty do not have a dunya you just want to make money here. Well Allah who you read, but Allah wants the hereafter for you. Allah says Lola, if not kita, when a decree mean Allah He from Allah, had it not been a decree a legislation from Allah, that subaqua that had preceded that had already been decided from before. Lama SERCOM if it was not for this, then what would have happened? Surely it would have touched you what would have touched you, FEMA, concerning

00:08:44 --> 00:09:37

that which a hearthstone you took meaning because of the ransom that you took from the prisoners, what would have touched you or that when I leave a great punishment? What does this mean? You see, Allah subhanaw taala had already decided that the law concerning the captors would be what, that either they can be freed in exchange for a ransom, or they would be killed given the level of their crimes. And this was later revealed in surah. Mohammed is number four for Imam unnumbered who were in my feeder that either show favor to them by letting them go meaning by not taking any ransom setting them free for no fee, or what ima feeder or let them by their freedom meaning let them give

00:09:37 --> 00:09:59

you the ransom and then let them go. And obviously the third option is that those who are really severe in their opposition to the Muslims and they will be killed. So anyway, Allah subhanaw taala had decided from before that this option will be given to the Muslims, however, had he yet revealed it had he had revealed it not

00:10:00 --> 00:10:47

yet, so the command was decided but Allah subhanaw taala had not yet informed the Muslims about it. Okay. So they were hasty in their decision. So Allah subhanaw taala says that basically you're lucky that the decision that you make conformed to what Allah subhanaw taala had decided, because if it was something different than you would have been in a lot of trouble. If, if the decision that Allah subhanaw taala made was not what you made, then you would have been in a lot of trouble. So basically, you're fortunate that the decree of Allah the decision of Allah concerning the matter of the prisoners, is exactly as you made. So basically, what's the problem here then? Eventually, Allah

00:10:47 --> 00:11:35

subhanaw taala was going to reveal the same command. And the Muslims decided the same from before what was the big deal? What was the big deal here? Why was it a problem? The problem was that the took matters in their own hands that didn't wait for Allah's command. And there was a little bit of greed over there. What greed, the financial need, so Nola keytab, woman, Allah, He said, belco Lemma second femur, a custom either win or leave? What does it show to us? A very important principle of religion, that all of the commands and prohibitions in our religion are from WHO? Allah subhanaw taala so much so that even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have any say, in the

00:11:35 --> 00:12:20

sense that everything that he taught had to be according to what Allah had decided. Which is why when the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said once that that's it, I'm not going to have any more honey, I have made honey haram on myself because one of his wives didn't like that, or there's a story behind that in which Inshallah, one day we will learn. Allah subhanaw taala revealed that oh Prophet, why do you make unlawful what Allah has made lawful, meaning you're not allowed to do that? So the legislation is really coming from who coming from WHO? Allah subhanaw taala and all of these if they are a proof or an evidence that Muhammad Sallallahu sallam was really a messenger of Allah?

00:12:21 --> 00:13:06

Because if he was a fabricator, like people say about him, then why would he be reprimanding himself really doesn't make sense. He wouldn't be representing himself. Nobody would do that. People who fabricate such things, people who want to show their greatness, they don't become humble in front of others. They don't show this kind of humidity they don't make that up. So these if they prove that Mohammed Salah Larsen was really a messenger of Allah, and the entire legislation is whose Allah subhanaw dharnas so Lola kita woman Allah He Saba Calama, circum femur a costume either when or when. So in other words, Allah's decision was what? That the booty be permissible for the Muslims,

00:13:06 --> 00:13:52

and also prisoners of war. If they are caught, then they may be ransomed. All right, this is permissible, which is why the Prophet said a lot of them said that I have been given five things which were not given to any profit before me. And amongst those five things was what that booty has been made permissible for me. So Allah says fuck Hulu. So then eat all of you eat meaning take happily menma from that which run into you have obtained as booty, whatever you have obtained as booty, whether it came at the battlefield, or it came in the form of the ransom that the prisoners paid for their freedom. Okay, so the NEMA is of two kinds over here. First of all, the booty that

00:13:52 --> 00:14:21

was gained at the battlefield and secondly, the ransom that came later from the people of Makkah to set their prisoners free. So Allah says eat the booty how halal and it is halal for you permissible for you a human in his pure meaning. Don't feel any guilt when using this. It is absolutely halal for you What duckula And fear Allah in the love a photo Rahim indeed Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:59

The Prophet sallallahu sallam said that war booty was never allowed for any among mankind except us. So basically, in the previous Omen, the previous nation so for example, Bani Israel, if they ever went to war with their enemy and defeated the enemy and gained some booty, were they allowed to use it? Was it halal for them? No, it was not halal for them, then what would they do with it? They would just gather it up together in one place and set it on fire. They were not allowed to use it. They were not allowed to sell it. It was not halal for them. It was made halal for who only the profits are

00:15:00 --> 00:15:18

A lot of Saddam and his ummah. And with regards to the prisoners of war at the Battle of budder, we learned that amongst the prisoners was the prophets of Allah Muslims uncle Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib, the prophets cousin, Arkin, who was killed the brother off.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:41

Ali, that'll be the horn. Okay. Then also, amongst the prisoners was the son in law of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Imagine, the son in law of the prophets of the Lord is alone. And his name was a Buddha us and he was married to the daughter of the prophets of Allah, Islam, Xena, below the level.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:49

Imagine the son in law had to come to fight against his father in law.

00:15:50 --> 00:16:32

There were two things over here first, he was a prophet of Allah. And secondly, he was his father in law, but still he had to come fight against him. Why? Because that was what the Arabian culture was, in the sense that you will support your tribesmen you will support your tribesmen. So if your tribesmen are going to war, you have to go with them. And the prophets are a lot of cinema was also related to them. But you see, they had no respect for him. They had no respect for him. But they had respect for others, they had violated so many, so many principles, in their enmity against the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So anyway, these three men were also brought to Medina as prisoners of

00:16:32 --> 00:17:20

war, and they had to buy their freedom. Basically, they have to ransom themselves. Very interesting story. We see that our bus bin Abdullah, look on it, he said to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that I do not have any money. So please set me free. Meaning I can't buy my freedom. I can't ransom myself or my cousin and all of these people, I can't do that. So please set me free. Because remember that there were several kinds of prisoners of war. First of all those who were great opponents, they were killed. Secondly, those prisoners who were wealthy enough, who could buy their freedom. So what was done, money was taken from them. Thirdly, the prisoners of war were such who could not afford to

00:17:20 --> 00:18:08

ransom themselves. Okay, so what was done, some of them they were set free, without taking any ransom. And others were told, Okay, since you can't buy your freedom, what do you do? You have some skill. Like for example, some of them knew how to read and write. They were told if you want to be free, teach 10 Children 10 Muslim children how to read and write, teach them. If you teach 10 children how to read and write, then you're free. So that's what some people did. You understand? Now our best he said that, oh, prophets are awesome. I don't have any money. So he was hoping that he would be let free without having to buy his freedom. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, What

00:18:08 --> 00:18:55

about the money that you and omal fogal his wife buried, meaning before you came here, you and your wife buried all that money? And you said to her that if I am killed in the battle, then this money that I buried is for my children and father, Abdullah and cousin. Abbas was shocked. Hold the vote. I knew that how do you know? He said, By Allah or messenger of Allah, I know that you are Allah's Messenger, for this is a thing that none except Oman follow, and I knew. This is something that even my children didn't know. And you know about it. So if you know, then definitely revelation comes to you. Definitely. You are the messenger of Allah. So our boss of that hour ago, he gave another try.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:35

He said, O Messenger of Allah, could you count towards my ransom, the 20 Europea that you took from me in the battle, meaning that amount of money that I had brought, and you took it from me as war booty? Could you count that as part of my ransom? The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, No, that was the money that Allah made as war spoils for us from you. So you better go get that money, and set yourself and your family free. So that's what our best had to do. He had to give the ransom and set himself free. Now with regards to the treatment of the prisoners of war, how are they treated? When we think about prisoners of war? I mean, we're thinking about people who are chained up who are left

00:19:35 --> 00:19:59

to starve, who are beaten up, who are tortured, so that some information can be taken from them. This was not what happened with the prisoners of war who were brought in Medina from But how were they treated? We learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam instructed the Muslims deal with them kindly, the prisoners of war How should you deal with them?

00:20:00 --> 00:20:52

Kindly, one of the prisoners of war, Aziz Ibn remade. He said that I was lodged with an on Saudi family. So what does it show that they weren't just chained up like animals and tied to some pillars? No. They were lodged were in houses. Why? There were multiple benefits in that, first of all, the family could keep an eye on them together. All right. Secondly, they would be taken care of. Thirdly, they would see Muslims and Islam, who are Muslims, how do they live? What is Islam? Because the thing is that many times what happens is that when you are viewing the people from a distance, then you can misunderstand, isn't that so? You misunderstand them, you don't know what

00:20:52 --> 00:21:16

they are actually how they actually live. But when you go visit them, when you spend some time with them, when you eat with them, then you understand who they really are. Which is why we see the throughout the history of Islam, many people who were taken as captives, when they saw what Muslims actually we're, what Islam actually is, then what did they do?

00:21:17 --> 00:22:01

What did they do? They embraced Islam. This is something that happened 1400 years ago, and this, this is something that has happened even now. Right? So this is a reason why the Prophet salallahu Salam had the prisoners of war, kept were in the masjid, somewhere in the masjid. Because then they would see how the prayers are established, what the activities of the Muslims are, how they deal with their messenger, how they deal with one another, what their values are, what their morals are. And some of them they were lodged in the houses also with the families. So he said that I was lodged with an unsightly family. And they gave me bread to eat in the morning. And the evening, meaning

00:22:01 --> 00:22:05

with my food, they gave me bread, you might say yeah, of course. Why not?

00:22:06 --> 00:22:40

Bread was not common in Arabia. You know why? Because bread is made from flour. And flour is made from what? grain and grain doesn't grow in the desert. And Arabia is what desert in the Oasis also, what do you have palm trees? Palm trees, meaning dead trees, what do they grow dates, you cannot have crop in Arabia. You can't have that. So that means that flower came from where? Abroad?

00:22:42 --> 00:22:44

Abroad. Okay.

00:22:45 --> 00:23:11

Every household did not have it. It wasn't their staple food. It wasn't their staple food. It was expensive. If you had it, you would feed it to yourself and your children first. But we see that this unsalted family, what did they do? They gave bread to this prisoner morning and evening and themselves ate only dates.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:19

They themselves ate what only dates in the morning in the evening. And they gave to this prisoner bread.

00:23:20 --> 00:24:03

And he said, if anybody had a morsel of bread, if they had even a little piece a little bit, what would they do? They would give it to him. And this prisoner he said I would feel ashamed, embarrassed that you're feeding me this expensive food and you've got nothing yourself. So he would return it. Sometimes he would refuse it. But what would they do? They would give it back to him untouched and insisted that he eat it. They insisted that he eat it. So when the prisoners received this treatment, they understood what Islam actually was. Then when they went back, there was a change in them. Their hearts were softened towards Islam and Muslims. They understood what the

00:24:03 --> 00:24:22

Prophet said a lot isn't brought until now. Because of that hatred, there was a barrier. Because of that bias. There was a huge barrier they didn't understand Islam properly. So now they understood and which is why we see that many of them embraced Islam, either right at that time or soon afterwards.

00:24:23 --> 00:25:00

So for Kuruman Millennium Halal anti human with the Kula in Allah haga photo Rahim Allah says, yeah, a Johanna B, O Prophet will say say to who Limon to those who feel it come in your hands, meaning in your control who mean an Astra from the captives, meaning those captives who are still with you. Why are they still with you? Their lives were spared. They couldn't buy their freedom immediately. They're waiting for their families to gather the money and send it to the Muslim so that they can be freed or they cannot afford it at all. So they're still with you. Basically, they're not ransom

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

yet, tell them if Yharnam he knows who knows Allahu Allah. If Allah knows ficolo become in your hearts on any good. If Allah finds any good in your hearts, any kind of good in your hearts, then what will happen? You take home he will give you higher on better mimma than that which only that it was taken men come from you. If there's the slightest amount of good in you than what will happen. Allah will give you something better than what has been taken from you while Fiddler calm and he will forgive you. Well Hola Hola. Hola Rahim Allah, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Question, what was taken from the prisoners of war,

00:25:48 --> 00:26:43

their freedom, their freedom was taken. So they're told over here, that if there's any good in you, that Allah will give you something better than your worldly freedom. And what is that guidance, Islam, the blessing of Islam, that Allah will guide you through this experience. And with that Islam, you will have true and eternal liberation. Because Islam though heed, it liberates a person's heart and mind from slavery to what slavery to this world slavery to the idle slavery to false gods. And it liberates a person from what Hellfire because Hellfire is also a prison. So it liberates a person from hellfire and where will a person end up in Jana? The home of freedom.

00:26:45 --> 00:27:26

So only mon fi ad COVID al Assad in Yarra Mala houfy, Kuru become hyaluron you take them higher on mimma aqui them income Allah will give you better than what has been taken from you, Allah who will guide you to Islam, if there is some good in you. And once a person is guided to Islam, then welfare law come Allah will forgive you for whatever that has happened before. All your opposition, your hostility your acts of violence against the Muslims everything Allah will erase for you. He'll fit look on Allah hula photo or him He's forgiving and merciful. Also, this ayah means with regards to those prisoners who had to buy their freedom who had to ransom themselves. So for example, our bus

00:27:26 --> 00:28:21

What do they want to know you have to price to free himself and his family. Now, that was a lot of money. And remember, that he also tried to have that 20 Rukia counted towards his ransom. But the prophets Allah Lawson refused. Allah says over here, Allah will give you what is better. So our best he commented that after I became Muslim, Allah gave me 20 servants, he owned 20 slaves, he was trying to save how much money 20 Rukia. And ye had so much money that he owned 20 servants in place of the 20 rupee I lost. In other words, he was saying that I got a whole lot of money much more money than I had previously. And this was a blessing of what Islam. And this is true. When a person

00:28:21 --> 00:29:11

takes a step towards Allah subhanaw taala. When a person accepts Islam, when a person takes their religion seriously embraces it fully in their heart and in their body, inwardly and outwardly, that Allah subhanaw taala opened the doors of his mercy for him. Yes, there is a period of test and trial like below and when he embraced Islam wasn't he tested? Right. And the example that is given is that when you go to buy a vessel, a container, then what do you do you knock it first, right to check how firm it is. So my Lord is testing me how firm and determined I am in my religion. So initially, there is a period where a believer is tested. But when he crosses that, when he passes that, then

00:29:11 --> 00:29:24

the doors of mercy of blessings or open for him in this world and in the hereafter. In the Quran, Allah says, what Allah wistow calm or Riccati let us plainer Houma and

00:29:25 --> 00:29:59

that if they remain firm on the right way, then Allah subhanaw taala would have surely given them abundant rainwater. And rain signifies what provision and risk that Allah would have opened the doors of his mercy to them. And this is something that happened, the Mushrikeen you don't want one of the main reasons why they didn't want to accept Islam. Do you know why? What was the main reason? They didn't want to lose their worldly influence? Because you see the mushy King especially the

00:30:00 --> 00:30:45

which the king of Morocco, they were the dominant tribe, the entire Arabia respected them. Why? Because they were the caretakers of the Kaaba. And not just that there were many idols placed within the Kaaba around the Kaaba. And what would happen, people from all over Arabia would come to Makkah, bringing their offerings to the idols. Now imagine if they're bringing old truckload of let's say grain, and they're dedicating it to the idols, you think they're just going to sit there and rot? Who's going to eat it? Who's going to use it? The Quraysh? You understand the caretakers. So they said that if we leave shake, if we say these idols are not true, we break them and we don't worship

00:30:45 --> 00:31:25

them anymore. We don't respect them anymore. You think all these people are going to come now? You think they will bring all this grain all this money, all this food? And if they don't bring it, where are we going to eat from? How are we going to survive? But what does Allah subhanaw taala say that you leave what is wrong for Allah, Allah is your provider, and he will give you what is much better, what is much better. And this is something that's true. If you see maca today, you can find almost anything there. This soul common over that. Just the other day, this lady was telling me that a friend of hers, she happened to be in the Haram. And she had her children with her, she was

00:31:25 --> 00:31:41

waiting for somebody, she said she got so tired, she just wanted to sit somewhere. And she couldn't find any proper places. She just sat, you know, on the floor. She's like, I'm just sitting there in that heat exhausted with my kids waiting for whoever. And she said, people started dropping money in front of me

00:31:43 --> 00:32:25

thinking that she was, you know, a poor lady sitting there. So she said, people just started dropping money in front of you. So she just got up and moved somewhere else, because she didn't want to take money like that. But anyway, this is so common in Makkah, you cannot go hungry there. You can never go hungry there. I remember I was very little we went for umbra. And generally it happens that when you go there, you catch a cold or flu or something like that. So all of us were a little unwell. And you know, you just want that D when you're sick, right? You just want a nice warm cup of tea. And I remember we're sitting there in the huddle. And this lady, she comes up with this huge

00:32:26 --> 00:32:41

percolator kind of thing, right? And what is she doing? She's got that nice, Shai. Right? That nice Arabian de Arabian coffee, whatever you want to call it. And she's just boring cups and her children are going around, giving them to the people.

00:32:43 --> 00:33:08

But other experiences, same room when I was very young at that time, this woman just came in at a full time and she's distributing boxes of yogurt and dates and bread everywhere, everywhere to everybody. You cannot go hungry there. You cannot go hungry there. Why? Because you come there you go there to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah is your provider so he will provide you every meal.

00:33:09 --> 00:33:23

You can't go hungry. So Allah subhanaw taala promises over here that if you have any good Allah who will guide you to what is better, and Allah will give you more than what you had before.

00:33:24 --> 00:33:46

He will give you better than what you had before. And it happens people leave a job for the sake of Allah and Allah gives them a job. That is much better in every way. The timings the money, the everything. It's so easy, so much more convenient. Because when a person takes a step towards Allah, Allah takes 10 steps towards him.

00:33:47 --> 00:34:19

We're in and if you read do they want Korean attacker, your piano meaning they intend to betray you? They intend to betray you how that the prisoners of war, they outwardly become Muslim just so that they can be set free. And then what happens they go back and they plot even more against the Muslims. So if they are cheating you betraying you by their outward acceptance of Islam, then Allah says, Don't worry.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:59

Don't worry, because you see if a prisoner embraced Islam, he would be set free. All right. So you might have this fear, he's just becoming Muslim to become free, and he's gonna betray us but Allah subhanaw taala has told us to deal with the people on their outward, right? Trust them. So Allah says, Don't worry, because for God, for verily Han Allah they betrayed Allah has been called Blue before, before also they betrayed allah how that some of them who had become Muslim, they still came and fought against the prophets all along the sun wasn't a piano that you say you're Muslim. And here you are coming with weapons.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:54

against the Prophet sallallaahu Salam against the bucket and Irma, isn't this piano that is not Islam. So they have betrayed Allah before. And what happened for um Cana. So he empowered, he empowered who you mean home against them. The word unconscious from the root letters mean cough noon and McCanna is to have firmness and stability. And I'm kinda is to enable someone to give someone power. So Allah subhanaw taala empowered you over them, he gave you power over them, he gave you victory over them. They came betraying Allah, His Messenger fighting against you, and what happened? Allah let you defeat them and catch them as prisoners of war. So, if they were caught this time, and

00:35:54 --> 00:36:32

they go betray you, you think Allah subhanaw taala cannot catch them again. Allah cannot empower you against them again. Of course he can. And ultimately where will they go? Where will they find refuge and shelter from Allah subhanaw taala they cannot temporarily they can survive but in the long run, they cannot Allah who are only when Hakeem and Allah is Knowing and wise. So what does this ayah teach us that don't even think about doing Fianna with Allah subhanaw taala you can escape once you can escape twice, but how many times will you escape? You can't run forever, which is why we see the people who commit crimes they get by they managed to hide they managed to change their identity.

00:36:33 --> 00:36:50

They can survive for a couple of years, maybe even a decade. But eventually what happens they're caught and if they're not caught in this world, they're definitely caught by the angel of death. Right? And in the hereafter justice will be established in Alladhina amanu indeed those people who believed

00:36:51 --> 00:37:40

were hydro, and they migrated they did Hijra what your hurdle and they did jihad, this Trove in the way of Allah. How did the striving Allah's were be unwisely him with their properties with their wealth with their money, they spent their own money in the way of Allah. When they went for budget. Nobody sponsored them. They took their own horse they took their own camel, they took their own weapons BM wiling him, what unfussy him they strove in the way of Allah, with what with their lives. They put their lives in danger. They went hungry, they became tired, they were thirsty, they were exhausted, they got injured, they bled. Why, in the way of Allah subhanaw taala they spent their

00:37:40 --> 00:38:27

money and they physically suffered also, why? Only for the religion of Allah subhanaw to defend his religion to support his religion. That is why this drove feasable Allah in the way of Allah. So who are these people? Alladhina amanu were hedgerow while jehadi will be unveiling what unforeseen FISA be the law who is is referring to the immigrants that will hygiene, those companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who first of all, left their homes in Makkah, went to Medina, did they find peace and happiness, their inner happiness and peace? For sure. But worldly peace and happiness? Not exactly why? Because they had barely settled that in the second year after he didn't, what did they

00:38:27 --> 00:38:40

have to do? Go to bother put their lives in danger. Whatever little money they had left. They have to spend that even. They had to spend that even anybody here bought a new car recently.

00:38:41 --> 00:38:49

Okay, now, if you have your new car, alright. And you're told, take five kids in your car in the winter

00:38:51 --> 00:38:56

and drive them to Ottawa? Would you do that? Brand new car? Would you do that?

00:38:57 --> 00:39:24

Would you know why? Because you know that those kids are going to ruin your car. Right? Your brand new car is going to be ruined. Because when something is used, wear and tear is expected. Correct. Now imagine if a person has a little bit of money. Imagine they've been saving for five years to get a car that they really, really want and they want a brand new car and they get it? How will they keep it How will they look after it?

00:39:26 --> 00:39:32

They'll clean it every weekend even though it's not dirty. No food allowed in the car. My husband was like that

00:39:33 --> 00:39:56

until the kids came and then obviously with them their milk bottles and their sippy cups and obviously all those splashes everywhere in the car and their winter boots and back seats of the car dirty and the seats dirty everything. The whole world changes right? But if you have your new car, you take care of it like anything

00:39:58 --> 00:40:00

you think twice before give him some

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

Somebody arrived.

00:40:01 --> 00:40:08

Hmm. The how particular are they? How nice are they? How clean are they? If they're the messy kind,

00:40:09 --> 00:40:10

I'll make an excuse.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:24

But we see that the Companions, they took their horses and their camels, whatever they had the best of what they had, in fact, were to the battle.

00:40:25 --> 00:40:30

They had to what does it show? They took their religion seriously.

00:40:32 --> 00:41:12

They took their religion seriously, the Dean was a personal matter. You don't like your car? You won't let other people ruin it. But if your children ruin it, you say it's okay. They're my kids. Right? It doesn't matter. I'll clean it. It's okay. We'll get another car. Set in sha Allah doesn't matter. Kids are kids, we give 1000 explanations. This is why we see that many times what happens is that people before they have kids are so particular. My watch my stuff. And when the kids come, then the same father is giving his expensive watch the kid to play with.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:49

Before where is it? Nobody touch it. Oh my God, my friends. Get us here. Make sure he doesn't get hold of my watch. Make sure he doesn't get to touch the glass table because he's gonna leave fingerprints. And then when the baby comes, and he smashes the glass table, it's okay. We'll just get a new one. What's the difference here? My kid versus somebody else's kid. Right? Somebody else's kid ruins my house. Not acceptable. My kid breaks my glasses. Even $500 pair of glasses. Doesn't matter. My kid. Yeah, you're upset. But my kid. Attitude is different. Right?

00:41:50 --> 00:41:55

So there are some people who take their religion as my religion, my dean.

00:41:56 --> 00:42:11

And others say, Yeah, religion. It is the it is Islam. But it doesn't have anything to do with my personal life. The Sahaba took the religion as a personal matter,

00:42:12 --> 00:42:32

which is why the suffered abuse because of it. They tolerated every difficulty, every suffering, they left their homes. They gave up their families. They even fought against their own relatives imagine the profits or loss on one side and who's on the other side, his son in law.

00:42:34 --> 00:42:34

Can you imagine

00:42:36 --> 00:43:20

a Belka on one side, his relatives on the other side? Because the more hygiene were who people from Makkah, and who was coming to find them at better people of Makkah. So there was blood relationships between the Mujahideen and the people of Makkah. They were brothers, there were uncles and nephews, cousins. They had many relationships that ties them together. But we see over here that the Muslims, they preferred Islam over anything else. You know, in one of the battles, we learned that Abu Bakr radiallahu anhu, and his son, who later became Muslim, he said that many times. I don't know if it was a book or some other companion, that many times you were very close to me and I could easily

00:43:20 --> 00:43:44

attacked you. I could have easily killed you, but I didn't I avoided you. And that companion, he said, if you came in front of me, I wouldn't have avoided killing you. Because you were coming at war not against me, against Allah and His messenger. And Allah and His messenger are more beloved to me than you are. So if you dare is a weapon against the Messenger of Allah. I'm not going to leave you.

00:43:45 --> 00:43:50

This was their love for their religion. This was their sincerity. This was their dedication.

00:43:51 --> 00:44:26

This was their Islam. What is our Islam? What is our love? Allah subhanaw taala praises such people in the medina ermine who were hedgerow what Jehovah will be unwilling him what and forcing him fee Sabina Allah. And on the other hand, will Lavina and those people who well they gave shelter Hamza, while Yeah, to give shelter Magua place of shelter. So they gave shelter one also true and they helped, they assisted in every way. Who are these people?

00:44:27 --> 00:44:59

Who are these people the unsolved first who is mentioned the Mujahideen because their sacrifice was more. And then who was mentioned the unsolved because the unsolved, what did they do? They gave shelter to them or hygiene, they welcomed them in their homes in their city, and they also helped the Prophet salallahu Salam, they also help the Muslims. This is why we see that when the Prophet sallallahu sallam was going to go for better the battle, he asked the Companions What do you say the

00:45:00 --> 00:45:38

imagining, obviously they offer their wholehearted support. And the answer they were quiet initially because obviously what they understood was that if one of them will hygena speaking, he's speaking on our behalf as well because we're all brothers and faith. So then one of the unsolved finally he got up and he said, perhaps are prophets of Allah, you want an answer from us? We're not going to say to you, what the people of Musa al Islam said to him that you and your Lord go fight and we are sitting here. No, we're going to accompany you. We're going to go with you. They helped. They weren't required to, but they still went forth and held the Prophet salallahu Salam. So Allah says

00:45:38 --> 00:45:58

concerning the Mahajan and De Anza hula, Ecuador's bartable home some of them only Oba. They are the friends at one another. These are friends. This is Friendship. This has loyalty. This has Willa. This is brotherhood, such brotherhood

00:45:59 --> 00:46:47

that goes beyond race that goes beyond treaties and facts. And what was agreed upon. This is love. Only Yeah, bow boom Olia, rhubarb, well, Latina Ave, Allah says and as for those people who believed but while I'm you heard you, but they did not yet migrate? They're still in Makkah. And in battle they come against you, then are they also your own? Leah? No. How can they be your own Leah Malecon there is not for you men from what at him. Their friendship min che in anything. Had that until you heard you they migrate? Meaning those people who have accepted Islam, but they're still in Makkah, they're still with the enemy. They're still siding with the enemy. So if the enemy comes to attack

00:46:47 --> 00:47:30

you they're coming along with them fighting against you, then what are you going to do say that? Oh, they're Muslims. Also, you're so you're not going to fight them. I mean, if they're coming in battle against you, trying to harm you, then you have to defend yourself. And you have to fight against the enemy. So even though they're Muslim, they're coming to fight against you, then you're going to fight against them. This is sad, but it's reality. So when is it that they will become your Olia? When they join you? You understand? Because who do you accept as your friend? Just someone who says best friend forever? Will you accept those verbal claims? When will you accept that they are really

00:47:30 --> 00:47:57

your best buddy? When when they show support? Correct? When they show that friendship? Like for example, somebody says you're my best friend, you're my best friend. And they're having a party. And they don't even tell you. They don't even tell you the whole classes and write it. And you don't even know. And then you wonder what happened to said, Oh, I'm so sorry. I completely forgot to invite you. You have like, Yeah, whatever. And they say but you know what? Best friend?

00:47:59 --> 00:48:00

Are you going to accept that?

00:48:01 --> 00:48:24

Are you going to accept that? Never. This is not friendship. If somebody says they're your good friend, and they want the best for you, and you find that they're talking to your other friends against you. They're letting out your secrets. Are you going to accept them as your friend? No. Friendship is shown through actions, not through words.

00:48:25 --> 00:48:47

It is shown through actions not through words. So Allah says about those Muslims who side with the enemy, that yes, they are Muslim. We don't doubt their Islam, but they're not your friends. If they join you, then yes, they're your friends. But we're in and if it's done, Saru come, they seek your help.

00:48:48 --> 00:48:52

They seek your help fit Dean in the matter of religion.

00:48:53 --> 00:49:36

They're living in Makkah. They are living with the enemy, but they seek your help because of the religion. Like for example, they say that we are in great trouble here we are being persecuted. We need help please send somebody to help us out here. We need to get out of here. We don't know how. If they seek your help because of the religion. Then for ILA calm then on you is UNASUR is to help meaning then you must help them, then you must assist them. In other words, if there is a Muslim living amongst non Muslims, and he says, I'd like to leave, and these people are persecuting me. So please come and defend me come and get me out of here. Then the Muslims must help that Muslim

00:49:36 --> 00:49:59

person. So what will they do? They will fight against the enemy. You understand? So if somebody calls you for help, then you have to respond to their call. Illa except Allah against Coleman of people meaning against that enemy Boehner come between you are buying a home and between them. There is what meets up on a covenant at

00:50:00 --> 00:50:39

treaty of peace, then in that situation, you will not respond to the call of that Muslim. You have to look at the greater good in the sense that either you save one life or you save many lives later on. Well Allah will be my thermal Luna bus fleet and Allah is watching whatever that you do. You can understand this from the incident that happened at the Treaty of Libya. Remember the Treaty of Arabia, one of the clauses was that if somebody goes from Mecca to Medina not allowed they have to be sent back to Makkah. All right. Now someone who goes from Mecca to Medina or wants to get out of Makkah to go to Medina, what are they doing essentially seeking the help of the Muslims in Medina,

00:50:39 --> 00:50:45

so the Muslims are technically obligated to help them because this is what the IRS says when it's done solo confit De Falco, nurse.

00:50:46 --> 00:51:29

But if there is a treaty between you and the enemy, then you're not going to help that Muslim, which is exactly what happened. There were Muslims who lived in Makkah persecuted, who wanted to join the Muslims in Medina. But because of that treaty, what happened? Those Muslims when they went to Medina, the Prophet sallallaahu Salam had to send them back. He had to send them back. He couldn't. He couldn't fight against them wished he came. Why? Because that is what the treaty stipulated. So what happened to those Muslims and you know what happened? They were sent back to Makkah, and they escaped Makkah. They didn't go to Medina, they got out of Makkah, again, they ran away.

00:51:30 --> 00:52:18

And they ran away. And they started living by a root which the machine used to take regularly in their trips. Okay. And what would they do? They will threaten them and frighten them and read them. So eventually, the machine sent word to Medina and said, Please, we're Hamilton Lawson, please call these people. This group of bandits. They're like harassing us. We can't go in security. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam call them but anyway, what do we learn over here that if there is a treaty, if there is a covenant between you and the people, then you have to respect that even if some Muslims are suffering, because it is only a few people that are suffering and inshallah Allah

00:52:18 --> 00:53:00

will reward them for their suffering. But the back demands, the bat demands from you, that you respect the matters that you've agreed upon, then you must do that. And inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will make a way out for those who are suffering and that we see in the seal of the prophets of Allah Who are your Salah. But the main lesson we learn over here in which we can relate with is that as Muslims, we must remain true to our covenants, our promises, our treaties, even if we're making them with non Muslims, even if we're making them with a non Muslims, piano, treachery. Deception is something that does not fit a believer.

00:53:01 --> 00:53:10

This is why previously also what did we learn that if you have a reason to think that the enemy is going to go against the treaty, then what do you do?

00:53:11 --> 00:53:24

If you wish to break it, if you wish to nullify it, then do so openly? Not that you go and secretly attack them? No, there has to be an open declaration that this treaty has now been violated.

00:53:25 --> 00:53:27

That's the sort of the recitation.
