About this episode

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi moves on to now discuss the events that transpired between the period of Badr and that of Uhud.

The beginning is made with the elucidation of the most interesting assassination attempts made on our beloved Prophet ﷺ. Here two names come to the fore who were involved in this horrific attempt - Umayr ibn Wahab al Jumahe and Safwan ibn Umayyah. After a discussion of the way they will do this deed, Umayr went back home ,sharpened his sword and covered it with poison.what happened next? Was he successful in his misdeed? Shaykh Yasir unravels the truth.

What is the stance of the Shaykh on the saying that our Prophet SAW discriminated against the Jews? What is the truth in this? We are provided with satisfactory answers and our doubts are put to rest.

Why were the Banu Qaynuqa expelled from Madinah? What benefits were derived from such an action?

  • The Banu Qaynuqa were the largest of the jewish  tribes and also the least harsh.
  • The Prophet SAW was put in such a situation to choose sides and this was unacceptable.
  • The Munafiqs were coming on to their own by showing their true colours.

A hadith which deals with the issue of Nifaq or hypocrisy is as follows:

When one of the leaders of the hypocrites came to the Prophet ﷺ and a normal conversation took place between them and he had left, the Prophet ﷺ said, "What an evil man he is".to this,  Aisha RA said ,"you were just smiling and laughing with him!". The Prophet ﷺ then said "Oh Aisha have you ever known me to be crude and rude? This is the leader of the hypocrites. Verily the worst in the eyes of Allah are those whom we are forced to smile at even if our hearts curse".

Allah says, "If they do treachery to you, you can never do treachery to them".
