About this episode

The series by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi continues with discussions on the Battle of Badr which took place on a Friday, 17th Ramadan 2H.

Many stories are revealed in this lecture about the different Sahaba and Qurayshis and what transpired with each one of them. He begins with the story of Umaid ibn Al-Human who died in Badr and it goes without saying that the Shaheed of Badr were amongst the elite and praiseworthy. Next is the story of Ukasha and his display of endless tawakkul in Allah is exemplary. The story of Muadh bin `Amr ibn Al-Jamuh and his bravery when fighting Abu Jahl is extraordinary and should be cited with honour.

Amongst the highlights of Badr is the killing of Abu Jahal - the pharaoh of the Muslim Ummah and Amr ibn Hisham and that of Umayyah ibn Khalaf who met an evil end.

After the Battle of Badr ended, the Prophet ﷺ told the sahabah to find the body of Abu Jahal which set the sahaba into action and it was Abdullah ibn Mas'ud RA who found him.

The final story is that of Abu Ubayda Amr ibn Al Jarah whose father was supporting the Quraysh and he sought to attack his son, Abu Ubayda which prompted him to kill his father in self defence. As was the norm even then, people lamented on the fact that he had committed a grave crime of killing his own father. Hence,Allah revealed the following verses in the Qur'an as a token of praise for Abu Ubayda RA:

"You will not find a people who believe in Allah and the Last Day having affection for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even if they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred. Those - He has decreed within their hearts faith and supported them with spirit from Him. And We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally. Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him - those are the party of Allah . Unquestionably, the party of Allah - they are the successful."

What do we learn from the Battle of Badr? Allah will give what is decreed IF we strive and work towards achieving it.
