bla bla will hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was suffering he a Gemini in a Salam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi to Audible but I care to my dear brothers and sisters.
After the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he left Mk. He left his home, he left his family, he left his tribe. And in fact, when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam mid made the journey from Mecca to Medina, just on the outskirts of Makkah, he turned around and faced the city. And he said, that if it wasn't for my people, that I would have never left you the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam addressed McHale mukarram the purest place on earth, the place where Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu Salam is establish established a bad establish the to hate of Allah subhanho wa Taala then he made the hedgerow and he made that journey Salah Allahu Allah, he was selling them to Medina and began a new
life with the unsolved with the helpers under Mohammed yourown. In an Madina Munawwara previously it was called yes rip before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam actually entered into Medina. And when the Prophet alayhi wa salam entered into Medina, he called the El Medina otter able to play iba the purest of purest places.
So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began settling in establishing the masjid, establishing the new society with the Muslims.
It was upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then to start establishing Islam, not just within Medina, but within the surrounding areas. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressed the Mohammed yourown those who emigrated from Makkah and then started a new life in El Medina. Well, how they're going to take their lives forward and start a new life. news reached them that Abu Sufian, who was one of the main chieftains of Makkah, that he was on a part of a large caravan, business caravan and doing lots of trade in a sham in Syria, and Palestine area. And no doubt that lots of the property that belonged to the Muslims was part of this trade caravan. So the Prophet
salallahu Alaihe Salam addressed to the muhajir own, that it was an opportunity for them a chance for them to reclaim their wealth. They left the vast majority of their wealth in Makkah, that was now being taken and being sold off in another place. The Prophet alayhi salam asked the Mahajan if they wanted to take the opportunity or they should take the opportunity or reclaiming their wealth. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke to the people of from the MaHA JRun and they agreed that they wanted to intercept this particular trade caravan that was led by Abu Sophia and that they would reclaim their wealth.
Then after that Abu Sufian heard of what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was planning, and he returned to Makkah on a different route, so he escaped them. However, a large amount to a large group of the Moshe cone remained in a certain area this news reached Abuja hill now Abuja Hello, who was a staunch enemy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the people that we cannot have Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and his followers behaving like this, that we should raise up an army raise a Jewish and we should go out and we should fight the Muslims. This was in the second year of the Hijra by after two years of the Prophet SAW Selim arriving in Medina, there was going to
be the first main clash, the first encounter between Iman and Cofer, between belief and disbelief between the Muslims and the disbelievers in an area called El Bedell.
Now, this particular battle, it took place in the seventh on the 17th of Ramadan, is a blessed month. And the reason as we mentioned that the Prophet alayhi salam wanted for the companions to reclaim their wealth. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions that they were only a few in number,
the majority of them being from the answer, but the agreement was that when the Prophet alayhi salam arrived in Medina, that they were to have protection, and that was only upon the Muslims are either unsought to defend the Muslims and defend their own land. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam addressed the Muslims he specifically addressed the Mojave rune, because they had an agreement to be with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, wherever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be. However, the prophet Ellison was indirectly speaking to the unsought as well, whether they would participate in the battle, or reclaiming the wealth of the Mahajan and the
Muslims. And one of the leaders of the tribes of the unsought whose name was Saturday, Obeida and also Saturday anymore else. These were the two leaders or the two chiefs and tribes of Osan houselogic. Both of these tribes embraced Islam, sides of the mouth. He said, y'all rasool Allah, you
It is as though that you are also including us in the conversation. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that is the case. And it is known that Saturday evening, what authority Allah and he said, O Messenger of Allah, we believe in you, we declare your truth. We witnessed that you have brought what we would what you have brought is also the truth. And we have given our word and our agreement to hear and obey you. So wherever you are going to go, we will go, and we will not say, As Vanessa eel said to Musa inhabitant, our book of a car dealer in Hoonah, called a dune, that bento is right when Musa alayhis salam was commanded to go into the city Batum like this, what did
they say to him? What did they say to Musa alayhis salam, his people said, You are Musa Angelo, you go and fight we are waiting here. However, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no, we will never say that. Rather, we will say we will go with you owe Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam with Allah subhanaw taala and we will fight together, even if it meant that we were to go out into the sea and fight with you, we will go and do that. So the Muslims Alhamdulillah all of them, they all agreed to go with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out and to meet the enemy on the battlefield, in an area called better, which is approximately 120 kilometers away from El
Medina. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam managed to only get about 70 from the MaHA Jiun because they weren't that many a number. And the majority of them were from the unsought split between allows will huzzah Raj from them. We're of course the whole of Russia doing early Radi Allahu Anhu and Earthman and Irma and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu anhu, the well known companions from them who are slightly older in age slightly younger in age, ill equipped or they could muster together to prepare themselves, they numbered approximately 313 or 314 Not very many Subhanallah the disbelievers on the other hand, were about 1000 strong, and that they had 70 camels, and they had
many horses Subhanallah wearing full chain metal, led by alcohol.
On the night before the battle, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the Muslims that they would remain in a particular place. And one of his companions, whose name was at Habib on Monday. What are the Allahu Anhu? He said, O Messenger of Allah, US remaining in this place here. Is this a revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. Are you commanded to do this? Or is this your own kind of
own order your own decision to stay here? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is my own my own decision, my own lie to stay here and hubbub Radi Allahu Anhu said O Messenger of Allah, I believe personally, it is better that we should camp in a different area, for that will be better for us so that we can cut off the water, the water source between us and the enemy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took the array or took the position of Alibaba or the Allah Ron and Allah subhanaw taala bless them in the place that they they stayed in because on that particular night, Allah subhanaw taala sent down rain, and the place that the machete cone that they were
staying in, the land became unsettled, and they they were not able to rest properly, and then they also moved. However, Allah subhanaw taala allowed the believers to rest and to take a good rest of that particular night then in preparation for the battle. Know that we can see here Subhan Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala was preparing and blessing the believers for victory even before the battle actually occurred. And we know that on the particular battle when it started on the day that the Muslims they put forth and it was the tradition of that time they would choose three of their best fighters. And similarly, the most unicorn placed three of their best fighters as an almost like
an introduction to the battle. Will Allah al Hamd that the Muslims defeated all of those three Moshe cone and the battle started about 70 of the machine Deikun were killed in that battle and from them to fill out of this room. That was Abuja Hill, Abuja who was killed in the Battle of Baghdad, and 1414 companions Radi Allahu Anhu. were martyred at this particular battle, the battle of whether this is as Allah subhanaw taala called that Yeoman for Khan. This is a day of the differentiation between a Huxtable battle between truth and falsehood. And this is where Allah subhanaw taala mentions in a number of areas in the Quran. For example, in Surah Al Imran Allah subhanaw taala
reminds us wala Kado Nasir Kamala will be bed during one two villa for tech Hello Hello and welcome to rune and Allah subhanaw taala has already made you victory or victorious at better when you were just last week small amount in number. So fear Allah subhanaw taala much that you may be grateful and then the verses continue with Allah subhanaw taala room
joins us how Allah subhanaw taala sent angels down to eight and to help the Muslims defeating the emotionally cool, this was a crushing defeat a crushing defeat for emotionally corn, and they returned to Mecca,
crushed and defeated in a very, very bad way. And this was a great victory for Islam. This was a great victory for the Muslims. And we should take points from this, that victory is never by numbers.
We know that victory is from Allah subhanaw taala. We know that Allah subhanaw taala will give victory to many people, many factions and people even though they may be small in number, if they are attached and close to Allah subhanaw taala that they will overcome and they will defeat even if it is a great number of great number great armies and great in great numbers. And we know throughout Islamic history during the life of formidable Mahatama, the Allahu anhu, that there would be many battles that the Muslims would participate in against the Romans, and that the Muslims Subhanallah would be very much the minority, maybe 10 or 15 20,000 strong and they will be fighting against
Subhanallah maybe an army of strong of 150,000 or 200,000 and similarly against the Persians. But Allah subhanaw taala gave victory to the Muslims with Allah al hunt. We also take great lesson for those people who rely on Allah subhanaw taala who are following what Allah subhanaw taala His commands in the Quran and Sunnah, that Allah subhanaw taala will give them victory for wherever they are. This was a great battle. And this was the beginning of some great things for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam and the Muslims that they will look forward to even though some trials would come even just the following year, but Allah subhanaw taala established Islam on earth through these
individuals, and this is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam made sincere dua for on the night before and on the date of a better May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to be sincere enough supplications aloha and Allahumma Amin May Allah subhanaw taala give us victory wherever your mean Baltica lofi como Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
