Episode Notes

This lecture by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi continues with the happenings of the Battle of Uhud and we gather more details on the same.

He arrives on Uhud on the 14th of Shawwal, 3 H. They come via date palms field rather than a highway. Why does he do so?

The Prophet ﷺ started organising his army and anyone under the age of 15 was sent back such as Abdullah ibn Umar, Zaid ibn Thabit, Usama ibn Zayd ibn Harithah, Abu Saeed al Khudri, Zaid ibn Arqam.

Raf’i ibn Khadij was 14 but yet he was asked to remain because he was an excellent archer. Samurah ibn Jundu also begs to stay since he was an excellent wrestler and had defeated Rafi several times.

The Prophet ﷺ encourages his army on the 15th of Shawwal to prepare them for the battle and hence, asks the Sahaba after taking out his own sword “who will take this sword from me and fight?” Zubair ibn Al Awwam was the first to volunteer. Then the Prophet ﷺ asked “who will give the sword the right it is owed”.  Abu Dujana said, “and what is the Haq of the sword?” The Prophet ﷺ said, “you fight the enemy with it until it breaks”.

The first thing the Quraysh tried to do as the battle began was the separation of the Ansar and Muhajiroon. How did they do so? Listen intently.

The story of the mubaraza that took place between Talha ibn Abi Talha and Ali ibn Abi Talib is an interesting one and illustrates the bravery of Ali Ibn Abi Talib RA at the same time valuing the ties of kinship.

Hamza RA, alongside Ali and Abu Dujana RA killed a plethora of Qurayshis and thus, the initial impact of the Battle of Uhud was devastating. The Muslims had the upper hand and forced the Quraysh to take a back foot.

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina, Muhammad Ali, he was a big marine about. So we had started talking about the Battle of boyhood. And we had talked about the preparations for war. The fact that the orange, we're camping outside, we're very close outside of Ohio, the shooter that the process of them did the fact that the Sahaba themselves different, and then they change their minds, and the processes and refuse to change his mind. He said, once he has worn armor, he will not take it off. Now, one of the biggest problems of the battle that we had, as we describe it, is that what we have is simply bits and pieces of the

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

whole battle. We don't have somebody who's painted the whole picture for us. What we have is one Sahabi says this happened. And he talks about one incident, another Sahabi says that happened, he talks about another incident. So we have small pieces of the puzzle. And the problem comes in filling in the gaps in between, and in figuring out which event is taking place before the other. So for example, let me say, suppose you were involved in a very difficult activity that lasted the entire day, you're not going to sit there and tell your descendants or your children, every single detail, you're going to tell them what what sticks in your mind, the one or two big events, okay?

00:01:41--> 00:02:22

Similarly, every one of those Sahaba is telling their progeny or the next generation one or two incidents here and there. So the problem comes in reconstructing the events of the battle. And that is why especially the Battle of boyhood, because it was chaotic. And also because it was a loss and losses. Generally you don't mention too much about them, right, because it's human nature. And so number one because it was chaotic. Number two, because it was a loss. If you read five different zero books, you will get five different chronological events of the battle. Right? You're not going to get a standard, if you like a series of events. And this is the reason why. So in today's and in

00:02:22--> 00:02:37

the following two, three lectures, this is one reconstruction and I'm warning you from now that this is original in its own way, if you go back and read other books, you might get slight variations, the incidents are the same. It's a matter of connecting the dots. It's a matter of

00:02:38--> 00:02:48

inferring what happened in between and this is something that there are always going to be theories and what will be presented today in the next two three lessons will basically be one theory of events. So

00:02:50--> 00:02:57

Allah azza wa jal knows best we will attempt to derive what we can. What appears to be the case is that

00:02:58--> 00:03:48

around the 13th of chawan, one, the kurush we're approaching the city of Medina, and the 13th of chawan is a Thursday, the 14th is the Friday and the battle took place on the Saturday. Okay, so pretty much most of the early authorities agree Urbanus houses amongst them, that the actual battle took place the morning of Saturday. So now we try to reconstruct the previous three days this is all theory, there's nothing explicit. And the theory basically is that by the 13th, the kurush and the Muslims are within scouting distance, they can send the scouts and figure out who's where, okay. So by the 14th, the Profit System decides we need to go to 100. Before the army settle down, before

00:03:48--> 00:04:35

they attack Medina, we need to get to and that is why, as soon as he did the Shura, and as soon as the Serato Juma is prayed, what did he do, he makes his way to record. And according to a number of reports, he makes his way to Ohio surreptitiously secretly, because he doesn't want to give it away to the enemy until he has gotten to work before them. And therefore he has chosen the place he wants to choose. So the fact that he is going to hurt secretly. And we know this because he asked for a guy to take him through the alleyways, not the alleyways, but the date palm groves, right. Not to take the major, let's say highway, he's not going to take the main highway to open rather than one

00:04:35--> 00:05:00

through the garden grooves in the corner of the back alleyways call it you know, the lay of the land. And so the entire army is basically making its way off of the highway. Why? So we have to infer here that they didn't want to be marching on the highway, because that would give their location away too early. They want to get to a herd first so that they can choose where they want to

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

And that's exactly what happened. And so it is narrated that as they were walking through the, the the date palms, a hypocrite heard the rustling of all of these men and horses, and he was an old blind hypocrite, one of the Friends of the new urbanists. I know, he's one of the Friends of Abdullah niobate. And he hears all of this rustling and he hears the whole commotion. So they're clearly not on the highway, they're walking through the date palms, they go through his own garden. So he says, Who is this is this Mohammed Salah Salem and and his companions. Verily, I don't allow you to step foot in my land. And he began his blind, he's an old man, he began throwing

00:05:40--> 00:06:19

pebbles and rocks and whatever, to try to stop the Sahaba from coming in his animosity and hatred, and one of the Sahaba one to raise his sword to basically get rid of him and the processes. sallallahu Sallam said, that who are welcome Dr. Melba, so leave him alone. He is a blind man of the eyes and a blind man of the heart. You don't have to kill this guy. What's you're going to do by killing him? Leave him I will only be available. So both his eyes and his heart are blind. And so they let him be. But again from this, what do we derive? we derive there's a reason he's not walking on the highway. What could be the only reason that the kurush or within scouting distance and they

00:06:19--> 00:07:01

have their spies. So he doesn't want to give away the location until he gets to it first, and then he chooses the location. And that's exactly what he did. The process of them chose the location first. So he arrived on Ohio in the early afternoon of the 14th. And the 14th is what day again, Friday, Friday 14th. This Friday, he gets the early afternoon meeting right after Salatu. Salam Juma he gets to because again, he wore his armor right after Juma and then he refused to take it off and he said no, we are going to march and they marched. And by the way, generally they will pray or they will pray tomorrow. According to one wire basically they prayed early in the afternoon or even

00:07:01--> 00:07:40

before so that the door and the the the issue of the is a different solid blue. This is a classical controversy and the hammer deposition which is frankly the position many mosques in America follow because it makes life a lot easier LaHood is a separate Salah not Juma is a separate saw that not related to the hook. So Joomla has a separate time zone. So Joomla can be prayed before selected. And this is the Humber D math lab and it is a position that is common and we here at MIT also follow this position and Charlotte the evidences are clear. If this is the case, we can assume that Juma was prayed basically, you can say in our time, like 11 ish like that early earlier than typical. And

00:07:40--> 00:08:21

so the process of them could have been at or they could have arrived already easily. by two o'clock easily. This is very easy, because it is half an hour walk from the offices of the machine, literally half an hour by car, it takes three minutes, four minutes direct straight highway, by car, it's literally right there is not that far away, and maybe even less than half an hour. So the Profit System arrives x or heard on the 14th and the kurush. Therefore by their scouts, they now know the Muslims are heard. So they make their way also to a third after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the night falls. And the two armies are both at Orford, therefore at sunrise,

00:08:21--> 00:08:32

they know there's going to be battle. And that sunrise is the 15th of chawan, which is the morning of the Saturday now, immediately as soon as the process of them arrived.

00:08:34--> 00:09:15

And we're assuming this took place on the 14th. But it might have been the morning of the 15th. We don't know. He began organizing the army and looking over each and every fighter each and every of the Sahaba putting them in an appropriate position. And what is narrated here is that he rejected around a dozen or so of the Sahaba because they were too young. So they were less than the age of 15. In the Battle of boyhood, you had to be 15 or older to participate. If you were less than 15 then you weren't rejected. And so of those who were sent back to Medina. sent back to the house is Abdullah bin Hamad bin Omar Abdullah.

00:09:17--> 00:09:26

Bin Omar. They didn't have it the famous half of the Quran the one who compiled the Quran Zayed bin sabot Osama bin Zayed Usama Ibn Zayd ibn

00:09:28--> 00:09:51

Osama bin Zayed bin Hadassah, Hebrew Nabi sallallahu Larson, this is Osama bin Zayed Abu Seidel hoodie, they they've been outcome and all of these are sent back because they are too young and Subhanallah Osama bin Zayed if you do the mathematic the math when he was 17 at the Battle of mortar. This means right now he's around 11 or 12 years old.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

1100 12 and he is trying to sneak into the army. He wasn't supposed to come but he's trying to like you know, sneak into the army.

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

Army and make sure that nobody sees him till he gets there. He's caught right before the battle and he sent back home. Where are our 11 years old compared to Osama bin Zayed? 11 years old at that time, a number of a number of these young men

00:10:16--> 00:10:43

tried to argue their way to remain and to have them succeed. So of them was Rafi urban cottage. Rafi urban cottage was 14. So the process is asking the ages 14, Hollis go back you cannot participate. Then some of his relatives petitioned and begged because they could they knew how eager he was. He was completely down struck that he's being sent back home. And so they said Yasuda law. He's an expert Archer.

00:10:44--> 00:11:26

Even if he's 14 Okay, but he's an archer. So we don't expect him to be in the front line. he can use his his bow and arrow. And so because he was an archer he was allowed to remain behind when the law fair was allowed to remain somewhat engendered stands up and he says Yasuda he's he's also 14 says Yasuda law if you're going to allow her off here. I am stronger than Rafa and I beat him beaten him up in wrestling a number of times, it's not fair. If you're going to let raffia stay then I should stay as well. And so according to one book, he even like jumped on him at the time to show him that I'm stronger than Rafa and so the Profit System allowed some water and profit to remain as well. And

00:11:26--> 00:12:06

of course again immediate we don't need to comment here how amazing it is. These young men young you know, lads, they're full of a man and compare this to Abdullah bin obey and the gray haired hypocrites. compare these to the senior of the hypocrites that Subhanallah they should have been at the forefront. They have participated in battle they have experienced they have wisdom, yet their cowardice as a lot exposes in the Quran. Their cowardice is were compared this to the bravery, the Eman the courage of these young men. And of course it is because of this that Islam spread where it's spread, because the people on this side had this type of emotion. So as we said, on the 14th,

00:12:06--> 00:12:35

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stations, the army, and even his house says that he placed the army This is in Urbanus Hoffman, we're going to now look at the map in like 20 minutes or so to try to figure out what exactly is going on. He placed the army such that in his house says the army was facing Medina, and their backs were towards overhead. So they turned around 180. So they walk and then they turn around, basically, now they're facing where they came from, and their backs were tortured.

00:12:36--> 00:13:21

And on their left, we learned from the books was a small mountain that at the time was called Jebel Li inane. And it is now called Java aroma, the the mountain of the archers, but at the time, it was called Java, ima. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam camped in a nestled if you like COVID, in a semi circular area that we will see in Sharla in a while, and he was surrounded by three sides protected by the mountain, and there was only one open side. And this side very conveniently had Jabara lining smack in the middle of it. So there's one site that's open, and smack in the middle is jevelin.

00:13:23--> 00:14:12

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As we all know, he stations 50 of the best archers on this mountain. And with their bow and arrow, they have this entire flank covered. And so in essence, the prophet system has now sealed himself completely from any possible enemy attack. And all that is left is a small area of roughly 300 meters or so that will be the offensive that the processor is now going to use as the offensive. And the whole beauty here. They are outnumbered four to one, more than four to one 700 to more than 3000 Plus, right, more than four to one, they're outnumbered four to one, 4.2 to one, let's say right here, what the profitsystem did, and honestly, this is military

00:14:12--> 00:14:58

genius that's coming from up what he does Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he makes this small number. And versus this large number, he maximizes the space such that their extra surplus quantity becomes meaningless. Because if you only have 300 meters to attack, then who cares how long the line is, is gonna be not that important. No, no doubt is still beneficial to more people. But what he's done is he's effectively made the odds much less than one to 4.2 because all that they're going to be able to attack the Muslims is literally around 300 meters. 300 meters is only a few times this long message inside that we have here. Double this by or triple it. Maybe that's all they have. So what's

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

the point of having 4005

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

2001 you have to all squeeze in. So you have now face to face men to men, you have now you're not going to be surrounded, and the kurush would have had to sit out and attack in a similar amount of space than the Muslims. And this is, as we said, the military genius of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course, he understood. And this is an interesting point here that out of the Battle of word, the most authentic reports, the ones that are reported in Bosnian Muslim, the ones that every book of Sierra reports is the advice that the process of them gave the archers, and this shows us, he understood that there is only one strategic weakness in this entire link. And that is,

00:15:43--> 00:16:21

that stretch of land that the archers are protecting. The other three are protected by the mountains, the 300 meters, we have taken care of as an army, there's only one large stretch, and that is the stretch the archers are in charge of. And he told the archers protect us with your arrows for their horses will never come forth. In response to arrows, horses, when they see the arrows coming, we'll never be able to charge horses are terrified of arrows, it doesn't matter even if you push them, they're not going to go forth when they see the arrows coming. And so he said, protect us with your arrows. And in one version, and this is in body. He says, even if you see the

00:16:21--> 00:17:02

birds eating our bodies, do not leave your places until I send for you. Even if you eat, see the birds eating our bodies, don't leave your place until I send for you. In another version, he says make sure the enemy does not surprise us from behind. Regardless of whether we are the victors or the losers, you stay there until I tell you. And again, it is interesting that out of all of the incidents have occurred, this one has been recorded with the most authentic change. And in every single book. And again, this shows us that the process of fully understood the sensitivity of the situation, so much so that he's getting a very graphic image, even if our corpses are lying there

00:17:02--> 00:17:20

until the commander until I send for you, it's not your job to leave this position. And, again, here we have, of course, the offices and preparing it down to the last detail. And we already mentioned the three people in charge of the arratia day who was the main person in charge of the Porsche

00:17:22--> 00:18:05

josephian on the right hand side was highly rewarded on the left hand side, it could even be jailed. So these are the three major contingents of the orange. On the morning of the 15th as the sun is rising on Saturday morning, 15th of chawan the Profit System is wanting to encourage them for battle. And every single, you know, group or every single military, you know, army it has its ways of motivating, even by the way the American army, it has a special department basically motivation, what are you supposed to do to motivate the troops. So, every single, you know, society or group has this motivation? What better motivation can there be than Allah azzawajal and his messenger and so

00:18:05--> 00:18:49

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is motivating them exhorting them, he is encouraging them. And one of the things that he does is he takes out his own sword. And he says, Who will take this sword from me and fight so this is going to be a blessing sword now, the sword of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, immediately everybody is saying I will I will take it. I know Yato Sula. And of those who was the first to say it was the processing of his cousin Zubaydah that I want the father of Abdullah. So wait a minute I want. So the proper system then asked, Who will take it from me with its right, be happy, who will give the sword the right that it is owed? Everyone paused.

00:18:51--> 00:19:31

abou Jana said. And what is its healthier Rasul Allah, what is the heck of the sword they are also the law. So the Prophet says, and I'm said that you fight the enemy with it until it breaks or is not serviceable anymore, that you continue to fight with this sword until you can no longer use it. And so I will do Jana said, I will take it with that haircut or sort of I will take it with this condition. And I will do Jana was a fearsome warrior. And in the days of jaha, Leah, he had established a reputation of being a fighting machine. And he had a special turban that was called the turban of death.

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

And it was red in color to really show that that

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

notion, and he would only wear it basically at extreme times of battle. So he donned the turban he put on the turban and he started walking around in a somewhat of a swaggering if you like gate a very, you know proud gate with the sword unsheathed up and down so the orange could see him. He's wearing his

00:20:00--> 00:20:45

Word, sorry, he's wearing the turban he has the sword up and he's walking in a very proud manner. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the hill Misha this type of walking Allah subhana wa tada despises it, except at such a time and such a place. This type of walking the walking of arrogance with chest puffed out words and showing your everything that you have and you have the sword out. Somehow Allah May I say that this type of walking is very common in our times, in many places, right? And yet our process of them said that this is a mission This is a walking that is your Bilbo Lala despises it, except at such a time and such a place only now. Now it makes

00:20:45--> 00:21:13

sense. You want to scare those people on the other side, you want to show them what you're made out of. And this shows us of course, that any This is common sense that you know the purpose of such a walker, the purpose of the turban is to instill this the the right spirit, the fighting spirit into the Sahaba. And of course, as I said modern methods of war, they have their own techniques, they have their own, you know, issues and whatnot. And as for us, we have a larger vision and the promises of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:14--> 00:21:20

Now, of the first thing that the chorus tried to do before the battle begins the first thing they tried to do

00:21:21--> 00:21:53

they tried to separate the the unsolved from the Mahajan. They tried to cause the gap between them. How did they do this two tactics. First of all, soufiane sent a messenger he sent flagbearer messenger and the messenger comes within shouting distance. And the messenger says, I have been sent by Abu Sophia, the leader, the chieftain, Abu sufian. And Abu sufian is saying all people of Medina

00:21:54--> 00:22:40

leave us to our cousins. For we have nothing against you. Go back safe and sound. We don't have a problem with you guys. leave us to our cousins. Now, the unsolved where the bulk, the Mahajan are less than 100 something of men here, right, you have five 600, of the unsought and there is no way that if the unsold leave Halas even the 700 now, you know, they'll go down to nothing. And so I would say, john says, leave us to our cousins, and you are safe, go back to your houses, we don't even want to fight you. We have no desire to engage with you just leave the kurush and go back home. And the answer became furious at this insinuation. And they responded back with a series of curses

00:22:40--> 00:23:19

and insults. And by the way, in such a situation in time, it is as well permitted to use language that is otherwise not befitting of a Muslim. We have a number of instances in the battlefield, where some of the Sahaba use some very harsh language, perhaps even foul language in order to and again, again, this is a time in a place exactly as the process of them said that that's not something that is appropriate, except at certain times in places and no doubt on the battlefield. And you're not going to be funded you first, you know, it's not going to be like this, you know, you're not going to have the Anisha you want some shot? No, doesn't work that way. Right? You don't have these. These

00:23:19--> 00:24:08

add up on the battlefield. On the battlefield, you show a harshness and a roughness that is meant for the battlefield. And so they responded back with a series of insults that showed their anger at How dare you accuse us of wanting to leave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the messenger comes back basically humiliated. Then a man says Leave this to me, I know what to do, who is this man? This man is abdomen, urban slave, he didn't even say fee. And he, his name was Mohammed or raw hip. So he is corny. or raw him or raw he means the monk or raw he means the monk and Mohammed of raw hip was one of the leaders of the house before the immigration of the profitsystem. He was one

00:24:08--> 00:24:29

of the few seniors who remained alive after the Civil War. And in the days of Jah helliya he was the equivalent of Abdullah nobody even salute he was of that stature and level and he was greatly beloved and respected. However, he did not want to accept Islam and therefore before the Battle of other he simply abandoned Medina

00:24:30--> 00:25:00

because he felt what Abdullah bin obey felt, and he just did not want to remain in Medina. So he took a group of his fellow tribesmen of the most smaller contingent and he went to Makkah to settle in Makkah, and to wait for an opportunity such as this one so that he could come back to his people and try to regain his his chieftain hood. And so he says to Abu sufian Leave this to me, for my people have always respected me and they have always

00:25:00--> 00:25:26

I always honored me. And you will see now the power that I have over them. She's been boasting to Abu Sofia. And so Mohammed or raha was his Konya Obama, right. His name is Abdullah Ahmed saifee. He went out directly in front of the unsought. And he said that, yeah, oh my people have the most. This is me of where I'm at. Here I am back.

00:25:27--> 00:25:41

And before he could continue, whatever offer he had, immediately, they said, may Allah subhanho wa Taala curse you and give you no pleasure. You are not a blacksmith or raw herb, you are a boy, I'm an alpha suck.

00:25:42--> 00:26:23

swapped his team around from raw him. He's degraded too fast. Why? Because he fled Islam. He was such a coward. He was such a full of anger and hatred towards the process of him that he fled his people, his own people. And he went to him. Everybody knows why he fled, right? So they said, You are not of Ramadan, right? Don't tell us you're the monk. You're not a monk. You're fasting. You're an evil person. And Mohammed was so shocked to see his own people. The hosts now, you know, basically gets so angry at him, that he couldn't even open his mouth to continue. And he returned days trouble suffered. And he said, My people have been afflicted with some disease. I don't know

00:26:23--> 00:26:57

what has happened to them. Right? He could not recognize his own people anymore. Because again, any This is what a man does that a man makes your wallet to Allah subhana wa tada into his messenger. Doesn't matter. If you are a leader in the days of Jamia, we no longer worship idols. And we're not going to listen to what you have to offer us. And again, these this is the reality of a man that a man establishes bonds like nothing else. And once those bonds are established, then whoever has it and hamdulillah whoever doesn't then they are not on the site of Eman. By the way, a bomb or raw hit, we should not call them right we should call them Obama the fastest like the cyber of

00:26:57--> 00:27:08

Warhammer. fossick had a very famous son, and his son was on the other side. His son is on the side of the Muslims. And all of you know his name. And his name is Humberto.

00:27:09--> 00:27:51

humba humba that is his son, Humberto is his son. So look now at the contrast between father and son, right? How amberleigh will die very shortly in the battle hood. And he is on the side of the Muslims and his father of Ramadan. fossick is on the other side, you know, wanting to persuade them to join his own his own side. So the Quran, then both of these issues, basically failed. So the Quran began their preparations for war. And the women as well, we talked about them last last Wednesday, somebody said they were the cheerleaders will lie. It's exactly true. They were the cheerleaders in their own way, not the types of cheerleaders of our times, but in terms of content

00:27:51--> 00:28:26

the same. And that is they are literally enticing the men with bed and with feroce. That's exactly what they're saying that go forth and win, and we will spread the flesh for you, we will spread the bed for you. Or if you become losers and come back then you're not going to get anything from us, right. So even on the battlefield, the women have the stick, okay, that they're going to make sure that the men are fighting it out all the way to the end. And so they began and they have their series of songs and urbanists hop record some of them and you get the point. This literally cheerleaders like literally giving those songs to encourage them to be brave. And as with all

00:28:26--> 00:28:34

battles, the first issue is always a move out as a one on one. All battles begin like this, right. And so the mobile is takes place in the Battle of boyhood.

00:28:36--> 00:29:29

And the barriers are the one on one takes place between Tottenham in a beautiful house. And Paul was from the tribe of the benefit of the doubt. So Tony comes out and he says who will fight to me who will do the MOBA. And so I even Abu Talib stands up and says, I will do it, I will fight you out it and so Ali Vitali comes forth and the two of them now thought he was wearing full body armor, and it had no armor called he was wearing full body armor complete even the hands and the limbs are covered and partly swung as soon as they were within fighting distance. But it was faster than him. And it immediately took the full blow of the sword. He took it onto his shield. And before he could take it

00:29:29--> 00:29:59

off of the shield, meaning follow her before he could take it off. Immediately he struck back. So with one hand is blocking literally like you see in the movies. That's all I can say. We've never experienced this type of stuff, literally like you've seen the movies like you called lightning speed. With one hand he moves it up to block and the other hand simultaneously is striking downwards. And that honestly requires skill that we can never imagine any of us in this room to be able to be that quick and see what's going on. He blocked

00:30:00--> 00:30:31

Below completely didn't even touch him complete on the shield. And now that he's defenseless because pothead is putting all of his might, in putting it down. Now that he's defenseless, he uses the other hand, and his whole body, he is wearing a suit of armor all the way down to the size. So what does he do? He attacks below the thigh. And again, look at how fast his mind is processing this information, right. So he attacks below the thigh. And with such force, the leg is chopped off

00:30:33--> 00:30:39

that his force, the leg is chopped off. And Paul just collapses to the ground.

00:30:40--> 00:30:43

And as he collapses, his

00:30:44--> 00:30:54

his garment that he was wearing, it is put upwards and in fact, his outer is shown. Because then he falls backwards and everything comes up his outer is shown. It comes to

00:30:55--> 00:31:32

striking a blow. And Paul has starts begging and pleading, he says, I beg you by the rights of kinship, they are third cousins. I mean, after all, they're all always you know, this bundle of the double the doubt of the doubt is the brother of them enough of them enough. Dada brothers, right? So he is the what is the to the math and a great grandson or something? So yeah, you get the point abdomen up and down. So it is the descendant of the abdomen off. And he is the descendant of Abdel right. So I think that's the third cousin we call it second or third cousin, third cousin, the third cousins, right? So he says I beg you by the rights of kinship, don't kill me. So vandalize on his

00:31:32--> 00:32:13

back is our is showing, and it gets embarrassed. And he gets some hugs at some higher. And he now nobody's hearing this, because this is in the middle. And so he lowers the sword and walks back. And the Sahaba said already, why didn't you kill them, but you just coming back like this. And so he said, Honey, I felt embarrassed. And he begged me by the Rahim by the ties of kinship, not to kill them and so are they actually, spirit him, he did not kill him. But of course in that state, he couldn't fight properly, he was killed in the battle. So he couldn't fight in about I mean, his leg is cut off, you're not going to the wound is festering. So he actually died later on in the same

00:32:13--> 00:32:50

battle one of the few of the orange that died, but it did not. It did not kill him. And he finished him off. And again, this shows us have handled that the ties of kinship, even though it's a fourth cousin or something, but nonetheless, it felt or third cousin, it felt that high and especially defenseless and literally like naked in this manner. He felt some imminent and some was gonna do called the Moodle of what's going to do with it like any dignity, like there's a way to fight. There's a way to even kill your opponent, you kill him on his legs, you kill him with the sword out. Now that he's in this pitiful state. This is not bravery. Right. And so it felt and this will lie is

00:32:50--> 00:33:09

this is what you call a warrior. This is what you call the noble warrior, your enemy your cousin's on your back, he's in the state. Now he's begging you. And also look at his bravery. What happens somehow, one minute, he's saying who's gonna fight who's gonna fight two minutes later, he's on his back naked, crying and begging for my life, right? Look at the difference between this and so it spares him and then he dies a death anyway.

00:33:10--> 00:34:05

Now here we have a big gap. We have hardly any details of the initial assault. We have just one or two small tidbits. So we have to simply imagine or visualize or theorize we don't have too many details of the initial assault. All that we know is that the Muslims charged after his victory they charged and the wish unicorn could not sustain this assault. Despite their four times advantage, despite their overwhelmingly powerful and well armed army, they were not able to maintain the assault that the Muslims did on the porch. And again, all that we know we have hardly any major incidents right now. All that we know, from a number of different people that the the women of the

00:34:05--> 00:34:52

whorish were forced to flee. And the fact that the women are fleeing shows that the initial attack has been devastating, because the women where are they stationed at the very end of the encampment, right. So the women are the very last tense. And the very fact that the women are forced to flee shows that the Muslims and this is exactly what the processor had intended that the concentration is now in their advantage that this small gap as we'll see in a while, the small area of land 300 meters. Now the Muslims have the advantage and they're charging, and they make their way all the way to the end because the arrays have and again we're assuming thinned out and that's what the process

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

of once the operation now not too much thickened up. You see the point in terms of so forth and the Muslims have plenty

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

so forth. So they're concentrated. It's like a powerful bullet if you like, going through a weak layer of the crush, right, so they make their way through and they start spreading out. And women are forced to flee. Now, we also know another thing that shows us how devastating the initial assault was.

00:35:20--> 00:35:25

One interesting thing that we know, again, the initial assault from the initial assault

00:35:27--> 00:36:10

was that the flag of the kurush was given to the sub tribe of the benefit of the doubt which Todd had was from, but how was from the same opponent of the DA, and it was the custom of the kurush, that the benefit of the doubt is the one that holds the flag, there will always give the flag to the benefit of the doubt, you know, the courage they have, you know, you have the water, you have this, you have divided it up. So the barrel of the dog had the honor of always carrying the flag now, and this is from the days of, you know, pre Islam, Jamelia. Now, in the Battle of budget, they also had the flag. But when the army fled, the flag bear was one of the first to run away their own bundle.

00:36:12--> 00:36:24

So before the battle, abou Sophia went up to them, and he's taunting them, because that's his psychology to taunt them to make them angry, so that they fight more. So he turns to them, and he says,

00:36:26--> 00:36:56

you have any doubt, we gave you the flag button, but you turned your backs and fled. And you saw what happened. As a result, he blames the entire budget on this one flight guy, right? He saw what happened because you were cowards. And the flag is the symbol of the army. If it stands, the army stands, if it falls, the army falls. So now either take the flag with the right that it deserves. Or if you can't, then give it back to us.

00:36:57--> 00:37:44

This is reverse psychology at the highest level, right? either be men and keep the flag or just give up now and had it up to us. And we'll give it to somebody else. What do you think they're gonna say? Obviously, they made a pact and a promise and they were extremely insulted. And they challenged Abu sufian that you will see what we will do with this flag. And they said as long as one of us remains, the flag will forever be high up. And that is exactly what happened. As long as one of them remained, the flag was up. But one by one, all 10 of them were killed. The first of them being palha. Because he was the flagbearer tell how the one that Id cut his his his foot off, right? The

00:37:44--> 00:38:01

first of them was done. And one by one. And most of these were called by Hamza, by the way, because again, Hamza is targeting see, one of the problems of carrying the flag is you literally become the target. Right? When you're carrying the flag you everybody the symbolic target. Another problem is when you carry the flag, you have one hand,

00:38:02--> 00:38:47

you know, already taken, right. So it's awkward to fight with one with one hand. So the flag bear has a great honor a great responsibility. But he also has a great weakness, but handicap is a big handicap when he's holding one of the you know, the one of that. So what happens is, there's 10 of these have the benefit of the doubt, one by one, all of them are killed, and the flag falls. And this really shows us how effective the initial assault was unbelievably effective, right? For 10 of the benefit of the doubt. Now, of course, we have to say there are targeted more because they're flavors. But still 10 is not a trivial number. One by one, they're all killed, and most of them at

00:38:47--> 00:39:27

the hands of Hamza, some of them at the hands of the party, some of them at the hands of a Buddha Jana, these three basically with the three main warriors that basically got rid of the entire bundle up the dark, until finally the flag also falls to the ground. And with the flag falling to the ground. This is the symbolic end of the army, that once the flag has not picked up her loss, the army is deemed to have lost and this is one of the chaos that happened that when the flag falls, the assumption is made by the Muslims that hallux soloviev. Right. And this was one of the things we'll talk about next week about this issue. Now. One other issue that we have again, we're still talking

00:39:27--> 00:39:46

about the initial impact abou Jana, the same old journal who's wearing the turban of death. I will do Jana he fought a fierce fighting and debatable in our marriage. The Hadith about this debatable one, many years later, he says that when the Prophet system offered his sword,

00:39:47--> 00:39:56

and I said I want it and he didn't give it to me. I felt something in my heart. After all, he's my cousin and who is this man?

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

The processor is my cousin. And who is this man?

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Jana, that you know, Zubaydah is the son of Hawaii, how is he the cousin everybody should know.

00:40:09--> 00:40:09


00:40:10--> 00:40:11


00:40:13--> 00:40:15

Sister, sister in law,

00:40:18--> 00:40:19


00:40:21--> 00:40:22


00:40:24--> 00:40:25

is the son of

00:40:28--> 00:40:31

Sophia Sophia Binti Abdullah

00:40:34--> 00:40:43

Abdullah Abu Zubaydah is the son of Sophia. He's married to Sophia is a bit of our you're right actually Yes. You're right, my mistake.

00:40:45--> 00:40:55

You're right. Abdullah even Zubair is the son of Sophia. You're right. And and Zubaydah that one is a cousin from

00:40:56--> 00:41:10

the hollow site, the cousin from the hardest site, and Abdullah bin zubaid is a double cousin, one generation removed. Abdullah Abu Zubaydah is a double cousin because both the mother and the father are related to the prophets listening.

00:41:17--> 00:41:23

So a sister is a smart binibeca. So, Zubaydah

00:41:24--> 00:41:31

is a cousin through the Holla Holla. Right. Yes, you are correct in this one. So he says,

00:41:34--> 00:41:44

there's always a first step. Now that's another brother always helps up my shoulder. And he asks probing questions. So it's a good mix. It's good to ask deep questions. hamdulillah.

00:41:46--> 00:42:32

So, he says, I felt something in my heart, because how could you give it to a stranger and not to his own cousin? Then he said, I decided to follow him. Like, after all, there must be a wisdom. Why did a lot and why did the messenger choose him over me? And so he says, and he's narrating obudu john did not meet a single person, except that he managed to get rid of him with a sword. Every person he crossed, except that that sword was used, be happy. Right? And he says there was one person of the kurush that was causing much havoc amongst the Muslims. So I made a dua to Allah, who Allah let Abu Jana meet him. Now all of a sudden he becomes a fan of Abu Jana. When he sees what

00:42:33--> 00:43:16

China is doing. instantaneously, he's converted. So he's saying Oh Allah, make up with the agenda. Get rid of him. And I will do Jana indeed got rid of him. They met they stood face to face and the hora she gave the first blow. I will do Jana simply brushed it off and with his sword immediately struck him and got rid of him. I was even as he also mentioned another story about Buddha Jana, and that is that I will do Jana himself narrates that I saw somebody encouraging the kurush with every single encouragement imaginable. And so I said, I'm gonna get rid of this person. So I walked up, and I raised my sword. All of a sudden, she turns around and one wallet call what is the Arab lady

00:43:16--> 00:44:01

cry of, you know, just like the way that the Arab ladies cry, right? And it turns out it is Hynde. So him this now basically she has her, you know, scarf or whatever she has a cloak on. So from the back, he doesn't know if it's a man or a woman. He thinks it's a man. So he comes and he raises the sword. He's about to strike. And she's Hynde. And she turns around and she screams the way that one whether somebody wants to do that, or you want to embarrass yourself. So you all know I you know, if you don't know, then just Google Well, we'll attorney so the way that the ladies do it, so she lets out that scream. And so he says, is the hate to I felt embarrassed to use the sword of the prophets

00:44:01--> 00:44:22

are seldom upon a woman Subhanallah I felt embarrassed to dishonor the sword a common the safer system to show honor to the sword that the source should not be killing a woman. And so I withdrew and I let her be and again, this shows us again, real fighting. This is what the real warriorship is about that even you stare people.

00:44:23--> 00:45:00

Those who don't deserve to be killed in that manner. So he he left killing hint, Abby, Sophia. And of course we also know that of those who participated with great valor is Hamza Ibn Abdul Malik Hamza, the uncle of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was of those who did not participate in budget for a legitimate reason. He did not realize what's going to happen at better he stayed behind. And so in the Battle of Ohio, he was extremely eager to make sure that he shows me who he is. And if you look at him in his house, and you see that at the end of the

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

Chapter One, he has a long list of who kills whom. And if you go through this list, Hamza is one of the warriors who has killed the most number of the harsh Hamza was one of those along with it and Abu Jana, these three were the big names of those who inflicted the most damage, Hamza was the one who has killed a great number of people. And sadly, he also has, you know, is about to die. And he becomes this to say the Shahada, and we'll talk about that next next week and shallow data. But the point being, and we'll conclude with this one narration, and that is, and so we'll conclude with the initial winning of the Muslims. Next week, we'll talk about the change of tide, and we'll introduce

00:45:39--> 00:46:16

it now via the maps. We'll conclude with that narration of body. Seibel Heidi mentions that Alberto, even azim says that when we fought them at Oh hood, they turned and fled, until I saw with my own eyes, the legs of the women as they lifted their skirts up, running up the mountains, and I could see their heel while their ankle bracelets. So the fact that the Muslims got all the way to the end of the army, and the women are so defenseless, that there they are running Helter Skelter.

00:46:17--> 00:46:22

They don't even have their own husbands and men to protect them. And they're running up to fleet the

00:46:23--> 00:47:03

encampment. And it had been his sham. He ads. I remember clearly seeing him and I remember seeing hint, that lady hints you will you know what she did? We'll talk about her next week. Right? That lady hint I remember seeing hint, and her female companions all running away up the mountain. And as I said, that's all but this is all we have, by the way of the initial assault. Literally what I said today, these four or five narrations. That's it tell us all of the other narrations deal with the counter deal what happened afterwards, right. And from this, and especially from this one narration, we can see how devastating was the initial impact that the Muslims broke through the ranks made

00:47:03--> 00:47:26

their way all to the very end. And now the women are forced to flee Helter Skelter and that clearly shows that the Muslims had the upper hand but of course this was what led to the chaos. And if we can now switch slides Where is happening if you can add your password and switch slides we can do a little bit of the maps in sha Allah huhtala and then

00:47:29--> 00:47:31

Greek for salata, Lucia

00:47:37--> 00:47:37

Are we on?

00:47:43--> 00:47:44

seconds again?

00:47:49--> 00:47:51

Oh, Miss Miller technical difficulties.

00:48:03--> 00:48:06

We need to like experience it authentic.

00:48:08--> 00:48:10

keep it consistent. You know always Mashallah to vertical.

00:48:21--> 00:48:26

Is it? No, that's definitely not. That is definitely not what's supposed to be

00:48:30--> 00:48:31

there's something wrong with what.

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

Okay, so what?

00:48:42--> 00:48:44

You were right there. Try it again.

00:48:48--> 00:48:55

Okay, so this is Google Maps we see over here, Medina, here's Medina. And, of course,

00:48:57--> 00:49:39

I wanted to show very quickly, Mecca and Medina do north, due north. And here is of course, Jordan underneath is Yemen. So the editor she thought he was safe takes place over here. The Battle of Budda Budda is right close to Jambo, you see the cursor there, right, but it is right over there next to young boy. Okay. And that is it shows us the kurush when they go to work, I'm just showing you the map, but even the Battle of other because you haven't seen them up in this case yet, when the Quraysh are going to Syria, they have to go right through this area to get to Syria, and therefore the prophets has intercepted them or attempted to intercept them in this matter. And this

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

was what led to the great battle of butter. And the next year, they attempted to take the caravan from this way all the way through, basically, almost to bowrider. And then back to tamer and tabuk. But jabril had told him and so they were intercepted once again, if you remember, and this is really what caused the Battle of boyhood that both of these passages are blocked.

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

There is no way they can get to Syria and therefore the only alternative is to fight and that is exactly what they did. And therefore let us now zoom in

00:50:11--> 00:50:21

to Medina. Here is of course the Battle of hybrid. We'll talk about that in a few months in sha Allah. Now we get to the beautiful city of Medina. Now.

00:50:23--> 00:50:28

This is the city of Medina. This is the let's go a little bit closer.

00:50:30--> 00:50:44

Yeah, we'll do that. So this is the city of Medina. I just wanted to show you what is called the Hydra and what is called the the two mountains. So the this, all of this is

00:50:45--> 00:50:57

this white spot right there. This white spot is the Heron. This white spot is the head on this entire spot. I wanted to show you the profitsystem said and Medina to hold on one

00:50:58--> 00:51:37

Min benei job job The island was sold between the mountains of iron and silver Medina is heroin and the process of said Medina to Adam bainer lab, but they have between the two mountainous rocks. So I thought one of these mountains I don't think it's marked here and I won't be able to tell you off the top of my head, one of these mountains over here. This is IOD. And so it is on this side over here behind all of this as well. So this entire area this site around is how long and then the processing said between the two lab data in Google Earth you cannot see the data you cannot see it anymore because people have built houses, but the lab but they are basically these two areas east

00:51:37--> 00:52:29

and west. So the Profit System clearly demarcated the city of Medina now. we zoom in, by the way, you see this white area right? And Muslim Imam Muhammad, our Profit System said 1430 years ago, he said when the job comes to Medina, he will stand on the mountaintop. And he will look inside the city and he will tell his followers, do you see that white house over there? That house is the house of Ahmed. That Masjid is the masjid of Ahmed. And he called it white. Right? And we're lucky when you are flying into the city forget flying this is Google Earth. Right? What do you see that massive white structure? Right that massive white structure, this hadith is mostly not meant that you see

00:52:29--> 00:52:49

that and beta are built over there the white house over there, that is Miss mud, that is the masjid of the prophets of mystery to me. And this is clearly the masjid here that is being described. So, this is the entire messages of the prophets of the lahardee. He was send them and this is Bucky Ellicott over here. This is Berkeley.

00:52:50--> 00:53:14

All of this is the Berkeley area. As we said this entire structure basically represents the old city of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The the downtown if you like this entire structure is covered within it. And so basically I was outside the city and of course in our days this is in fact just the center of the city. Now move a little bit outwards and

00:53:15--> 00:54:00

here is Oba over here this is Koba, right, this is Koba over here, and over obviously when you're coming up from from Makkah you have to go through Oba to get to Medina. So we're in the process of the hegira he waits at this small place of Toba waiting for it to come then he works his way to Medina. So this is much cheaper back over here time. Now where is a herd we said our herd is the exact North so over here is awkward and look awkward is a massive mountain all of this is held this entire mountain is or heard or heard the mountain is pretty much the size of the entire city in our times right? As we said it is not just one mountain it is a whole range of mountains. So this is all

00:54:00--> 00:54:41

of this is the mountain of ocean. Now we come closer here and again. Look at where the Hallam is this is the Heron right look at the size one kilometer. So roughly This is roughly one kilometre two kilometres roughly less than three kilometres away. How long does it take to walk three kilometers, right, roughly less than three columns. As I said by car, it's literally three minutes. You will get there no traffic, three minutes you will be in the mountain of work. Of course in our times the city has grown so much that the entire city reaches the mountain of work back in the day of the prophets of the law it was send them all of this was usually it was plantations it was date palm. So here we

00:54:41--> 00:54:59

have the mountain of Orford. Now, where did the prophets Islam camp look over here the very strategic place that the proper system campton this area over here where you see these houses. This area is where the Muslim army encamped. Notice how

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

Perfect it is. On each side, there are mountains on each side, they are protected by the mountains. And

00:55:11--> 00:55:37

this is where the battle actually took place. The camp is over here. And Java nine is right over here. This is where the Java nine is. Okay, so let's see if I can zoom in one bit more. Okay, perfect. Yeah. Okay, this is Java nine. And I'm going to make it center. Now this is you see this little bit of mountain here. You see that? Now, you don't want to turn the lights a little bit off, by the way, maybe that would be good.

00:55:39--> 00:55:40

is making a little bit brighter.

00:55:44--> 00:56:25

Last one, there we go. Okay, I think that's better. Right? So, let me see one more if we can go in. Oh, very good. Okay, this is about aligning. Now when when we go there, and our days, this is not that high, it's probably 150 feet, we need to understand that at the time of the process, it was probably close to six 700 feet. Why? Because every time one of you walks up the mountain, you take a little bit of it back all the way to Memphis, Tennessee. Okay. So, from the time of the process of up until our time, we can estimate the mountain has been diminished at least five fold at least five fold. So, what we see now, we could you know, extrapolate that to like five 600 feet now, this is

00:56:25--> 00:56:32

the German name, okay, that now is now called Java Roma. Now, let us go back to C or hood.

00:56:33--> 00:56:43

This is the camp of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So as we said, it is protected by three ways completely protected. And this small area, look at the size This is

00:56:44--> 00:57:33

200 meters is this much. Okay, this much is 200 meters. So literally 300 meters, as I said, Yes, 300 meters from this tip of the mountain to jobelan is around 350, maybe Max 350, not more than 350, maybe even 300. So this area is where the assault took place. And as I said, the genius of the proper system was to concentrate those 700 people into that small area. Now, where is the vulnerability, this land right over here? This is the weak spot. This is that one area that is completely unprotected. Why? Because you want to concentrate over here, the Quraysh By the way, they are camped over here, this is where the Orisha camped. So the Muslims are going to launch and

00:57:33--> 00:58:03

offensive and they work their way here and the Quraysh are fleeing, you know, Helter Skelter on this site. So what happens is and as I said, this is the interpretation of my chef chefs if you run about 40 other scholars have interpreted it differently. Hold on You want to let's get to the other one. Where's the other one? Here we go okay. Oh, Mashallah. This is Google Earth right so let's quickly go closer. I think this has better images. Michelle, let's have article This is technology for you. This is cnn technology for your home.

00:58:04--> 00:58:09

Oh this is m i n n this is okay, here we get back to Medina.

00:58:11--> 00:58:14

Okay, here we get back to Medina here this is seems to be a little bit better. Okay.

00:58:18--> 00:58:27

Yeah, this is okay. This is much more clear. Actually. We'll stop there. Okay. So here we have Gemini. This is Java nine right over here. This is Java nine. Okay.

00:58:28--> 00:59:10

We find over here at Mount Hood. This is the shoe say the Shahada. This is where Hamza is buried. This is where Hamza is buried. The actual battle took place a little bit away from here, he was moved away, Hamza was probably buried in this area. And then because of the the the rainwater that exposed his grave, he was moved a little bit back. So the Battle of Orford is taking place in this area between this tip of the mountain, and Javelin and I named Now, according to majority of medieval historians, look at what happened. This is one opinion, which my share strongly disagrees with. According to many medieval historians, they say, when the Quran is flat, I have to zoom out to

00:59:10--> 00:59:27

show you when the Quran fled, Cardinal lead, saw what's happening. So he went, look, where did he go all the way behind the mountain, and made his way back over here was the problem with that opinion.

00:59:29--> 00:59:36

Way too long. And frankly, as my shift such as everyone said, Whoever says this has never visited or heard.

00:59:37--> 01:00:00

Like whoever says this has not seen or heard, they're simply reading about it, and then they say they went from behind the mountain. If you were to go behind the mountain, we're talking about minimum, five, six hours, minimum, to go all the way with horses and whatnot, and there's always gonna be too late. You're not gonna that's not the point here so clearly, and I cannot

01:00:00--> 01:00:27

Talbot say that opinion does not make any sense to say that Harvard went behind the mountain all the way. Look, I want to give you a contrast, how big is the city? And how big is it? Right? Look, all of this is all of this is a city, the moral city, by the way, look at the difference, right? Of course, the classic city is literally just that one thing. Look at how massive it is to say this does not make much logistical sense. So what is the other interpretation? So

01:00:28--> 01:01:06

and as I said, I'm very honored and humbled. Well, I can't help but feel very honored and humbled chef. So if you don't want to give us a private tour of this journey, we and my colleague or my friend, Kuwaiti friend that I had, when he showed us in his own opinion, he literally went into a trench over here, I don't think we can see it on Google Earth. But he said, In his opinion, this is the interpretation. So what is it his interpretation? He said, Now, this is Javelin? I mean, do you see Javelin? I don't know if you can see it. Can you see it? This a javelin? Now, he said that when the Muslims went forward, and the what happened was the army thinned out? Because you have the

01:01:06--> 01:01:29

Muslims had a long column, right? So the army is spread out. And each group of 510 20 is now busy, either killing off whoever's remaining or, sadly, collecting the war booty, right? And so they're all busy doing that. So as we all know the story 40 of the archers basically left the field. Now, according to chuck sulfuric man,

01:01:30--> 01:02:15

harder than what he was on the right hand side, we know this from kotova serum. Right. Now, let's do a where is the right hand side? It's on this side. Right? It's on the left side of the process. And of course, right hand side, right. So Harley, that already is already on this side of Gemini line. So he sees what's going on. That was his advantage. reclaimer could not have seen what's going on. I wish Sophia codorus. He was going on holiday Allah had willed it. He was that genius that was at the right time and the right place. So when Holly turns his back to flee because he did fleet, he is not fleeing like a coward. He's fleeing like a general. He's looking back seeing what's happening. And

01:02:15--> 01:02:46

you can see on the top of the mountain, the 50 people, and now he sees the 40 of them have fled. So what does he do? Again, I'm jumping the gun, but you all know, he raises another flag of his local group. He calls as many people as they can. Now let's get back to the job of the line. You cannot see this on Google Earth but when and frankly I don't even know if they still have this because they've done a lot of construction but there is a ditch that is rainwater ditch like not a ditch would you call it the cavern? I mean

01:02:48--> 01:02:59

not a drained by you I mean in the desert a bio doesn't make sense but you know you get the point when it rains there's this you know waterway that fills up right and you cannot see this on on Google Earth

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

Yeah, yeah ravine is good. Yes, ravine is a good word. Yes. So there is this ravine over here. According to Shapiro, Mr. Harley, blow, worried, ducked inside the ravine with his entourage with as many people as he had with him, so that he could remain hidden from let's see if you can No, you cannot see this, I think. But it's basically in this area. It's it goes down. It's a ravine and it's a waterway for the for the rainwater, and he ducked until he was as close as possible. And then he surprised even the 10 archers than 10 archers were not able to spot harder. So they came up, and they got rid of the 10 archers, and then he sent an envoy or a messenger to gather as many troops as

01:03:46--> 01:04:33

possible. And then they launched a counter offensive from this area, meaning straight from the front, not all the way behind the mountain. They went in straight from the front, and they attacked double sides. Firstly, the encampment that the profitsystem himself was in. And secondly, behind the Muslims who were collecting the war booty, right? So if you look at it, when you come in from this area, where are the Muslims, they have been spread thin, in this entire area, all of this area, the 700 of them would be in small pockets because they think the war is over. And this would have taken around 45 minutes perfect amount of timing for the Muslims to feel confident that the war's over the

01:04:33--> 01:04:59

koresh have fled. Now they have some of them maybe even put their swords down. They're collecting the booty, and they have you know, all of the armor and the tents and whatnot. And they're all complete chaos because and this is the whole point when Allah says you saw what you loved. You forgot about the prophets of Allah while he was telling me about the Morocco ma to hipbone. metacommunity dunya amico Akira now, so the Prophet system is kept right over here in this

01:05:00--> 01:05:43

enclave, and he only has a small group of Sahaba because the rest of them are fighting. And there is no danger of at the time of the Quran attacking here. So he literally had perhaps only two or three of the Sahaba with him. That's all that was there, because they're all fighting, the war is deemed to be over and all of a sudden, hardly launches a counter offensive, how many people we have no idea. But we can estimate reading all of the sources, at least 150 people were there, out of 4000 hiring managers to gather together at least 150. And he sends them in different directions as well. Some of them right into the camp of the Muslims now realize they don't know who's where they see the

01:05:43--> 01:06:00

camps, they see the Muslims, so they as well are trying to surprise attack them. And so even they split up into smaller groups trying to maximize the damage. And this is where the profitsystem himself has to turn his back and flee with only one or two of the

01:06:01--> 01:06:42

of the Sahaba with him. And there is a picture, if I'm not mistaken, this is the area where he fled. Let me see if I can find that there's a picture somebody has posted here of the actual cave that the profitsystem fled to. This is it right here, this, so this little crevice, we're going to talk about that next, next Thursday, next Wednesday inshallah, right this is just remember this, we're not going to have the slide next Wednesday, unless you want to, I don't know. But this little crevice over here, this is where the profitsystem fled to. And this is where and again, he is literally at this stage, he literally had, in the beginning, he only had one person with him in the beginning

01:06:42--> 01:07:18

only once a hobby, and then slowly but surely not imagined from far away from far away. You don't know who's in here, maybe nobody's in here. And that's the point that Eliza would have protected him in this small cave, sitting in a crevice with one or two of the Sahaba. And this was one of the most critical times in the life of the Prophet. So sort of where he was unarmed, he was almost defenseless with one or two of the Sahaba had hardly been worried come with even three people, four people call us, Danny, of course, a loader protected him but I'm saying this was one of the most critical times of this era, where

01:07:19--> 01:07:52

the Prophet system himself when he says, what was the worst day that ever happened to you? Was it the day of offered? Because in her mind, there could be no day worse than it was the day? And he said no is the day of thought if that was because for the process of it's not a matter of danger. But humiliation obviously hurts more for the true man than physical danger. So the physical danger was not the issue here. But in terms of physical danger, there is no question. This is the most critical time in the entire era, where you can imagine look where where is this mountain situated? It is situated

01:07:53--> 01:08:31

up here, let me come in a little bit closer. So this is where the camp of the Muslims the Muslims was right, you get the point. So let us come a little bit closer. And look, he is running upwards into a small crevice over there. This is where he is running. And the Quraysh are trying to find him. And in the meantime, the rumors spreads that we have killed him as we're going to talk about right, they killed Osama bin omae Masada Romain, outwardly he resembles the process of physical features are roughly the same. And it is said that he was wearing the cloak of the processor. And so when he's on his face, they see the cloak. So the new rumor spreads. And this is where the chaos

01:08:31--> 01:09:09

completely reached a maximum. Many of the Muslims thought that he had said and passed away the Horatio exalting that they've killed him. So any group of the Quraysh when they hear this, of course, this was a lost plan, because when they heard the process of his dead, they didn't have any they didn't feel the need to re energize and regroup now that they've killed him, so they themselves are happy and going back the victory has been done. This too was a plot used by a lot to send the flourish back. Nonetheless, we will talk about this inshallah next Wednesday, but for now, I think it is very clear the beauty the strategic genius of the process that I'm to choose look at what how

01:09:09--> 01:09:38

perfect this area is, and he fully understood the one missing link the one weakness and that weakness was protected by Javelin I named the archers could easily have protected this area, but they disobeyed and it was because of this and look again here. It was because of this area over here that the koresh managed to inflict the damage that they did and inshallah we will continue this next ones day. Are there any questions about today's lesson?

01:09:39--> 01:09:40

was it

01:09:44--> 01:09:44

was it What?

01:09:48--> 01:09:50

Of course that's everything happens with

01:09:51--> 01:09:56

everything. And we'll talk about some of the wisdoms why next Wednesday inshallah.

01:09:59--> 01:10:00

We will talk about

01:10:00--> 01:10:01

This ALLAH forgive them.

01:10:02--> 01:10:07

Some, Allah forgive them explicitly says in the Quran that he forgave them.

01:10:08--> 01:10:10

Other questions? Yes.

01:10:21--> 01:10:22

I don't know where

01:10:31--> 01:11:16

the cover of Hamza, right, so you will find the cover of Hamza. And if you face the caliber of Hamza towards your back on your right hand side, you will find the javelin lining. Okay, it's Yeah, it's right there. So if you climb that small, little hill, if you climbed any Hill and everybody else was climbing, it does jump at it. Okay, what I'm trying to impress upon you all is that that little hill must have been much, much higher, because it is visited by millions of people every year. And millions of people will erode it day by day, not even year by year, you know, day by day, frankly. I mean, I know Allah has blessed me to be in Southern Maine many times I remember as a child back in

01:11:16--> 01:11:47

the early 80s, right, compared to now has been Mashallah 30 years. And it may be I'm imagining, but we're lucky, I feel that I can tell the difference one, you know, from 30 years from where it was to what it is now, because now you don't even feel any effort, you literally is just, I mean, it's like, you can take a toddler, you can take a toddler up, it's that easy. It's right there. I mean, so long winded, but you can imagine with the increased quantity of her judge, you know, it's in my humble opinion, I think it would make sense to block it and just see it but in any case, anyhow.

01:11:49--> 01:11:58

Of course Yeah, that's but in any case, I mean, what can you What can we do inshallah there's some benefit in even going up there and seeing what else Yes.

01:12:00--> 01:12:08

No, there's no holy site in Islam other than the three other than the three right? That should the rehab in Laila

01:12:09--> 01:12:33

massager, the fella thread. There's only three holy sites, any other site we go to we go to for historic reasons. Right? We go to to increase our demand to see what happened. There is no holy site in Islam that we think there's blessings coming from that site, other than Makkah, Medina and Jerusalem, the actual massage of Mecca, Medina in Jerusalem, otherwise there is no site that is inherently holy in Islam.

01:12:42--> 01:12:59

No, there isn't, and we'll explain the wisdom will explain the wisdom that will contrast one of the lessons will be a contrast between brotherhood and what Allah said about better and what Allah said about embeded Allah subhana wa tada says that you were about to disagree, but Allah brought you together

01:13:00--> 01:13:24

and said, terrorism official term, you disagreed and you fought. And you disunited, the exact same words are used but in bother. You were united after that was an overhead. There was always disagreement from the day one about what to do with the hypocrites about where to fight about this. And that, and Subhanallah disunity was one of the causes of the downfall as well.

01:13:26--> 01:13:29

Final question before we break for what is mentioned

01:13:35--> 01:13:36

in the 115

01:13:45--> 01:13:47

was it I'll have to check

01:13:52--> 01:13:56

that I made a mistake then. I will check. I will check.

01:13:58--> 01:14:01

Yes, yes. You're right. You're right.

01:14:03--> 01:14:16

I will check but because in one book I just read today it mentioned that so the reason he was enthusiastic, but then you are right. It does not make sense. I will check this inshallah and get back to next next Wednesday. Sharla any announcements?
