About this episode

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.
