About this episode

In this lecture, Shaykh Yasir commences with a brief discussion on Zaid Ibn Thabit and how he was instrumental in many important decisions from an Islamic point of view. Why was he chosen from the Sahabas to learn Hebrew? Listen intently to find out.

A major event that happened in and around the same time was the blessed birth of the grandson of the Prophet ﷺ - Al Hasan ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib RA. And then followed the birth of Husayn Ibn Ali Ibn Abi Talib RA in the very next year. These two grandsons have  profound status in Islam and merit huge amounts of respect for what they shall do in the future in the way of Islam.

The rules of Azaan in the ear after birth, the rulings related to Aqeeqah and many such positions were elaborated upon at this time.

"Hasan and Husayn are the leaders of the young men of Jannah and there father is better than them." This was a famous hadith regarding these stalwarts of Deen.

The next major incident that occured is the expedition of al-Muraisi and Banu al-Mustaliq where al-Muraisi was the location and Banu al-Mustaliq was the tribe. They were siding the Quraysh against the Muslims on multiple occasions. Al-Haairs was the chieftain of the Banu al-Mustaliq.

When the Prophet ﷺ heard of the plans of Banu Al Mustaliq and their evil intentions against the Muslims, he made an expedition with 700 sahabas during 6 H and they achieved an easy victory over them. How did this happen and who proved helpful here? Shaykh Yasir answers beautifully.

Two major events took place after the expedition of Al Muraisi:

  • The capture of the daughter of the chieftain of the Banu Al Mustaliq tribe, Juwayriyya bint al-Harith and her subsequent marriage to the Prophet ﷺ.
  • The embracing of Islam by the entire tribe of Banu Al Mustaliq.
