About this episode

In this lecture, Shaykh Yasir delves into the mini expeditions that took place between the period of Badr and Uhud.

Shaykh Yasir commences his lecture with the expedition of Karkara tul Qudr which transpired seven days after the battle of Badr and the tribes of Banu Saleem and the Gatafan went all out to attack Madinah. This news also made the Prophet ﷺ to counterattack them.

The second expedition was that of the Sareea of Saweeq that occurs around 2 or 3 months after Badr. this is in connection with Abu Sufyan and how he wanted to avenge the battle of Badr. What did he do and what was the result? Shaykh Yasir elucidates.

The Sareea of Qarada is next up for discussion and it took place before Uhud. The expedition was in relation to the Quraysh and their  leader Safwan ibn Umayyah was placed in charge.

An important topic for discussion is that of the assassination of Ka'b ibn al-Ashraf who was born to a an Arab father and a Jewish mother. He was a wealthy and handsome poet of high stature. He also undertook an expedition against the Muslims and his position on Islam was very clear from the beginning. He had also made an assassination attempt on our Prophet ﷺ.

After all these misdeeds, Prophet ﷺ made it very clear that Ka'b needs to be assassinated. Muhammad ibn Maslamah , a Sahabi from the Aws, was entrusted with the job.
