bla Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah early he was of big minus Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh your ml for con, the day of differentiation where Al Huck a valuable bottle where the truth dissolved and disgraced falsehood. This was the day of Al better in the second year of the Hydra in the holy month of Ramadan. About a year later, the Quraysh the machine Deikun of the Quraysh were were embarrassed about what had happened. That news had spread around the Arabian peninsula that the machinery cone or the custodians of muck at that particular time the polytheists they had been defeated by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his followers. So

00:00:55--> 00:01:41

they themselves want to to exact revenge. So Abu Sufian, who at that time had yet to embrace Islam, he spoke to the tribes surrounding Mecca, and that they wanted to raise up an army far greater than the army that they had gathered in better. And they had gathered more than 3000 fighters. And within these 3000 fighters, there were 700 camels. There were 200 horses, and they decided to bring the women with them as well to play music and to encourage their fighters against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was in El Medina. Now this news reached al Abbas the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so Allah Bursa de Allahu Anhu wrote a letter and sent it to the

00:01:41--> 00:02:04

Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam about that what was being cooked up by the machete cone of Makkah. Over you have no capital the Allahu Anhu received the letter and read it to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and told him this was what the most unicorn of Makkah, they were preparing. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept they kept the matter, close to himself and didn't tell anybody.

00:02:05--> 00:02:44

Then the Prophet alayhi wa sallam began to speak with some of his close companions, and informed them that in fact the machete cone that they were making their way towards and Medina, to exact revenge, because of the embarrassment, because of the victory that had been given to the Muslims at 100. In the year previous, should they remain inside al Medina, or should they go outside and Medina and meet the enemy on the battlefield? Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was of the view that they would remain inside Medina, and that they would allow the enemy to come in, and that they will defeat them through the streets, and that they will however, have an advantage over the enemy

00:02:44--> 00:03:09

from this perspective. However, many of the Muslims or some of the many of the Muslims were unable to participate the year previous because of the age and because of other circumstances. Some of them were of the mindset that they did not want to remain inside the medina because of the presence of the women and the children. But because of the enthusiasm, they wanted to go out in the battlefield, and they wanted to meet the enemy.

00:03:10--> 00:03:50

So about 1000 of the Muslims, who are those who resided inside of the medina decided and the prophets hasn't changed his mind to go out into the battlefield and meet the enemy. amongst this 1000 of the fighters was an individual called Abdullah ibn Obi Wan, also Lulu, this individual was the head of the owner of Kuhn, the head of the hypocrites. And before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam actually came to El Medina, it was decided amongst the tribes and the people that were there, that he was going to become the leader of El Medina, like the king of Medina. However, when the Prophet sallallahu, ala some came to Medina, that idea was crushed, it was dissolved that was

00:03:50--> 00:04:17

not going to be so he, of course, hid his hypocrisy, and openly showed that he is a Muslim, however, he had a great amount of hatred towards al Islam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which would be made clear in time. So this individual Abdullah didn't obey IGNOU salute, went out with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then when they reached an area, there was a disagreement amongst the people. And then here, Abdullah Abdullah obey Ignace Zulu

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

showed his NIFA showed his hypocrisy, and he said we are not going to participate in this. So from the 1300 followed up to live nearby and they returned to El Medina. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was with 700 of the Sahaba under the Allahu Anhu under the law and him to face with 3000 of the machete Kuhn and the area of ahould. Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded about 40 of the Sahaba are those who are carrying bows and arrows rumor that they would stay on a particular mountain. If any one of you have seen Jebel or hood. It is a very enormous mountain and just below or the foot

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

to that particular mountain, there was a small mountain, so there's a gap between them. So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam realizing the numbers and splitting them into three different groups on the right flank and the left flank in the center wanted to protect the rear, with a number of Airmen. And here the Prophet sallallahu ala some gave them very clear commands to remain on this mountain and not to move that they would serve by Allah's Pantheon has permission to protect the army from the rear, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that even if you see us, and we are on the floor, and it is all over and the birds are picking from or the birds are picking from the flesh of

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

the bodies, do not move, remain in your position.

00:05:40--> 00:06:21

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave clear instructions to the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu. And they stayed when the battle begun. And we know that the most unicorn when they arrived with such a vast army, that they set aside a number of horsemen to the rear and the backside of the particular mountain. But alhamdulillah, the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, in his placement of these particular airmen protected the rear of the army. So it did not allow these horsemen to come round from the rear. And then, of course, fight the Muslims from from the back, which would cause great confusion, because the Muslims were in terms of number, not like the enemy, the enemy had 3000 and

00:06:21--> 00:07:01

the Muslims only had 700. So the Prophet sallallahu salams placement of these rumo these Roman in this particular position, was Alhamdulillah, a great decision from the Prophet salallahu Salam, which goes to show that the Prophet Addison was a great military leader, not only a prophet, and a messenger, and also a father, and also all the titles that you have within a family status that he but he Salalah Salim was also a great tactician, and a great military leader in these particular matters. So at the beginning, when of the fight of the of the clash of these two armies, the Muslims will learn hand had the upper hand, and in fact that the most of the corn began to flee immediately

00:07:01--> 00:07:42

Subhanallah soon after the battle began, then after that, that some of those members who were told to stay on that particular mountain saw that that the most unicorn they were fleeing the battlefield, that the Muslims once again will be evicted, were victorious. And so some of them came down from the mountain was saying, Allah nima aneema. I need the winnings of the of the war is there waiting for us. So the decision of these particular companions to go against the word of Rasulullah sallallahu Ellison to come down from that small mountain, which was protecting the rear of the army was a great mistake. When this happened. Holly dibny Walid, who at this time had yet to embrace

00:07:42--> 00:08:13

Islam came around with a large cover, we have horses and came to attack the Muslims from the rear. This then placed the Muslims right in the middle. And then there was a claim, then, in fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had been killed. This, of course, was false, but it was a claim from one of the people that Muhammad has been killed. Muhammad has been killed. Some of the Muslims were shocked by this particular statement, some of them dropped their weapons. And the Muslims then became between two sides of the enemy.

00:08:14--> 00:08:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was actually safe and was being protected by a number of the companions. And as Abu Bakr Siddiq, Radi Allahu and clearly states, he said the day of or hood for me was the day of Paul had to obey the law, or the Allahu and the Paul Hara the Allahu Anhu was there protecting the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was under attack by from arrows and swordsman, and they will call her protecting the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam with arrows going into his body. In fact, part of his arm he was then paralyzed after this battle because of him, protecting the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam. The Prophet SAW Selim, part

00:08:55--> 00:09:11

of his armor is chainmail with through effects check and knocked out one of his one is one of his teeth Subhanallah So the Prophet sallallahu sallam was injured in this particular battle. Here the prophet Elisha salaam commanded the Muslims that they would retreat to an area so that they would have a higher position when facing the enemy.

00:09:13--> 00:09:53

So Allah subhanaw taala mentions this incident in a number of verses in surah. Two earlier Imran stating that there are some people who you read the dunya that there are those people who sought the dunya will mean come when you read it, and that there are those who saw the agora, those who sought the dunya those who saw the the war booty in front of themselves before the ending of the particular battle going against the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam were the cause of not defeat, but unfortunately, like not a victory for any one side. At this particular time that there were a number of companions Radi Allahu anhu, who were martyred about 70 of the companions over the

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

Allah who were martyred at this particular battle. And from them Hamza to Ibn Abdul Muttalib the uncle

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

You have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this caused a great amount of pain to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam losing his uncle at this particular battle, but Alhamdulillah when the Muslims they reached the upper part of the mountain, Abu Sufian and the machete Kona at that time, they were happy that they had inflicted some form of harm to the Prophet SAW Selim and the companions were throwing slogans and statements to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the companions and here the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said to the Companions to respond to apostrophe and and the machete cone at that time because they were praising their gods and the prophets I said to them,

00:10:39--> 00:11:18

Ijebu won't you answer them, and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with his persistent telling the convention to answer them, the companions and from them Ramadan, Katara de la Ryan said, said that there was no one worthy of worship except Allah subhanaw taala that our deceased will be in the Paradise and your deceased will be in the pits of the Hellfire. So the prophets of Allah Islam remained in this position, until the machete cone knew that they could not do any more, and then they returned to Makkah. Now this was not a defeat on any part of the Muslims or the machete cone at the time, nor was it a victory or decisive victory for any one side, for the Arabs at that

00:11:18--> 00:11:54

particular time for them to be victorious in a battle, that they would have the winnings of the battle, and that they would remain in the battle area for more than three days. And that they of course, that they would take over the land. Now the moose unicorn did not take any of the winnings of the of the battle, nor did they remain there for three days. And then hamdulillah Medina was protected by Allah subhanaw taala. So the Muslims were able to return safely to El Medina. But this was a reminder to the Muslims, not to take things for granted, even though they were victorious with a small number the year previous at the Battle of weather. But this is a reminder not to take things

00:11:54--> 00:12:27

for granted, that the striving for Allah subhanaw taala means striving for the earth era, and whoever strives for this dunya that they will fall short. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. So this was a great reminder for the Muslims in this particular battle, but not everything was going to go their way. This was a reminder of the Muslims to turn back to Allah subhanaw taala and to adhere to His commands and His revelation. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala he allows us to be from those people who adhere to the revelation of Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Mubarak Allah. wa salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
