bravery, courage, those are two words that define Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you were to ever meet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you lived in his time, peace and blessings be upon him, if you got to experience His presence, one of the things that everybody would say to you wasn't just that he was truthful and honest, that he was a person of calm and, and a person of of deliberation and determination. But one of the firmest characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that he was a man of bravery and courage. And we define bravery and courage as being an attribute of patience and sobra. It's an attribute of being able to go further

00:00:49--> 00:01:30

than the next man further than the next woman in where they would give up you keep going, because your mind is able to govern your body and your spirit and you're able to leverage greater power than what other people are able to do. I want to describe to you the prophets lie Selim, and bravery. It's not just something that is displayed in the battlefield, but I'll give you examples from the Battle of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Ali Abdullah Abu Talib, the cousin of the prophet Isaiah lamb, the husband of the daughter of Rasulullah, saw Isola moto de la hora de la jolla and his Sahaba to remain he was an exceptional commander, an exceptionally brave young man, an exceptional

00:01:30--> 00:02:17

leader of the faithful and one of the hula Rashi. Dean Alia of the Allahu anhu wasn't a man who was, you know, a joker, he wasn't a person that you could take Liberty with. So a leader of the Allahu anhu you know, he's described in its own right, that during the Battle of haber that his might was so powerful that he ripped the gate off one of the fortresses so I want you to think about that i Lee is a person of substance, power and authority. He IE Not me, I Lee describes the profits I sell them by saying either hmil waters when the battle was raging, and you know, the arrows are flying and the swords are clashing and bodies are dropping when the battle was in full pitch, when people

00:02:17--> 00:03:00

began to fear during the battle at its peak of its intensity, if that bet now what are your rasulillah? If the BATNA Helfer rasulillah we stood behind and hid behind the back of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want you to picture that there's a guy who's a night Collie rhodiola, who I know I want you to think of Mr. Raja Allahu anhu. They say to us, that when the battle was raging, and we got scared, and we wanted to find comfort, we stood behind the rank of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, you could see this in the Battle of her name, where Allah subhanaw taala describes that moment why oma Khomeini and the idea but couldn't catarratto come and surah

00:03:01--> 00:03:46

Toba on the Battle of Hernan when your numbers you thought would overwhelm your enemy when I'm talking yankem shy but it didn't help you in any way you were distracted and you were dispersed. The Prophet of Allah I sell them they were being ambushed in a valley it by the tribe of Hosanna. And they were ambushed in a valley from above that the hilltops and and and a missiles of rocks and arrows and spears were raining down upon them. Most of the Sahaba ran away, and only a handful stood around him. The prophets I sell them on that day instead of retreating and running for cover. He drew his sword sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood on his mount stood on his horse. And he said Anna

00:03:46--> 00:04:30

Nebula Kevin and apne Abdulmutallab men are Adani for Hannah that I am Mohammed I am the Prophet it is not a lie. I am the son of Abdullah motilium men are odd and neither one who wishes to face me in pitch and battle. Here I am hi and avec. I'm not I'm not retreating, I'm not a coward. When the Sahaba saw the prophets I send him standing on his mouth. They all ran back and the tide of the battle change. It is also recorded that one day during the times of in Medina and when a water in the middle of the night they heard this tremendous rumbling, which sounds like war horses coming out of the desert you would hear them coming from like a few kilometers a few miles away. So in the

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

middle of the night, they heard this massive rumbling out in the desert. And the people got scared as everybody got up there putting on their armor, they're getting their horse mounting it, you know getting their saddles on putting their sword in place. By the time they all got up and they began to go out towards the desert. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was riding back and they saw that the prophets I said limb was on his horse without a saddle without armor.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

His sword was hanging around his neck. He didn't even buckle into place. And he says letter Oh, don't be scared. It was just the sound of the desert. It was just a storm that's coming upon us. Don't be fearful sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bravery is the hallmark of a believer. But I want you to know that there's a difference between being brave and being foolish. There's a difference between being courageous and being a person who puts themselves in harmful way. The prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam was a calculating person. He was a person who was guided by revelation guided by advice of other people. He was a person of substance and bravery. And this did not deter him from

00:05:41--> 00:06:22

supporting others in their time of need. But it did not ever mean came reckless peace and blessings be upon him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's important for us to acquaint ourselves with the bravery of our neighbor you Mohamed. So I said to him, with the understanding that bravery means to rely upon a law and to take the correct action in times when other people may have made a mistake and chosen another course of action. And therefore it comes through training and deliberation. bravery is an instinct that can be heightened and increased with training. And therefore it's always encouraged for us as Muslims, to be able to learn how to defend ourselves, to learn how to swim, to

00:06:22--> 00:07:01

learn how to drive a car, to learn how to drive, manual shift in our car, all of those are things that I kind of encourage you to do because they take some of the mystery out of life. Every one of us should learn to master some of the things that we're not familiar with, not because we're going to need to use them every day. But because knowledge is also power, and it increases our ability to deal with adversity and to demonstrate courage when other people fail at it. Well, suddenly lahoma wa Sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Selim your brother your hair Brahim was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
