Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now moves on to discuss the fate of the Banu Quraydha who had betrayed the Muslims and sided with the Quraysh.

When the Prophet ﷺ is on the verge of return to his house after  a month of fatigue,he is greeted by Jibreel AS who commanded the Prophet ﷺ to go to the Banu Quraydha and that he cannot pray Asr until he has reached his destination.

The first to reach was Ali ibn Abi Talib RA. The Prophet ﷺ told him to hold up the flag of Islam. He hears the people there speaking very ill of the Prophet ﷺ and tries hard to prevent the Prophet ﷺ from being in the vicinity of the dirty talk and tells him to camp far away.

The story of Abu Lubaba RA and his story of seeking repentance from Allah is a very interesting one and should not be missed. He is a great sahabi who has witnessed Badr but didn’t fight. He also fought in Uhud and other battles and he has an excellent record to show his love for the Prophet ﷺ.

The Banu Quraydha surrendered on the 25th day of the seige after their supplies began to dwindle and there seemed no opportunity to escape of flee.

Next up for discussion is the judgement of Sa’d Ibn Muadh RA in the matter of the tribe of the Aws. What follows and his decision taken and how it is taken is a sheer work of art and it pleases the Messenger of Allah ﷺ no end.

00:00:20--> 00:00:51

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala seda Mohammedan while he was bH marine Marburg. So in our last lesson, we had discussed the conclusion of the Battle of the hand of the Battle of the HAZOP. And the way that Allah subhana wa tada used a number of factors to make sure that the departed without even a battle taking place. We talked about 90 minutes rule we talked about the army that Allah sent, we talked about the treachery, that's not the treachery, but the,

00:00:52--> 00:01:00

if you like, what's the word I'm looking for the know the mistrust, or not among the mistrust that the three tribes had for each other. The

00:01:02--> 00:01:40

Bernal calleva with the Hata fan with the orange the mistresses are looking for that they didn't trust one another. They really didn't have the same reasons for fighting. And so Allah subhanaw taala used all of that against them and worker for law mineral Teton as the law says a low was enough Allah suffice the believers for fighting worker for law homeowner located they didn't need to fight a low was sufficient for their fighting. So when they woke up the next morning after that terrible Sandstorm, literally, they saw the entire land deserted, nobody had remained, all the tents had been overturned. And so it's clear that the corporation the exam have left so the Prophet

00:01:40--> 00:02:22

sallallahu alayhi wasallam then departed back home. And some say he went to the house of Ole Miss Ella, his wife, Miss cinema, and he had hardly come home and put down his sword when Jubilee came to him. When Jubilee came to him, and this was around the whole time, it was around her time. And of course, though her time is the time of the afternoon up in that culture and that and that time, and to this day, many cultures have that climate they have an afternoon nap, it is the time of complete silence. It is the time of siesta really, this the concept of afternoon nap, and it's also the time of heat. Nobody does anything in the afternoon. So the process was about to take off his armor, take

00:02:22--> 00:03:09

off his you know to relax, and lo and behold, God it comes to him in his hot mentions that he was wearing a turban made out of his stomach, which is soft brocade, riding a mule with the saddle of the badge, which is silver, which is silk. So Jubilee is coming in the best fashion and form his turban is there he's riding his camel is a mule with a saddle of D badge. And he said to the profitsystem Yasuda have you put down your sealer your weapon? So the President said yes, he has put his weapon is about to take his armor off. He said yes. So the prophet SAW god it said to the Prophet system. As for the angels, then they have not put it down yet. We're still ready for the

00:03:09--> 00:03:59

battle. We have not put it down yet. And I have just arrived with a new contingent, a new Battalion, meaning you're coming to rest. We are ready for another round. Yeah, Mohammed. Allah is commanding you to go to the bundle Cordova. Now this is a command right? A lot is commander after one month of tiredness of mental fatigue torture. Right. So Pamela you're thinking finally come home. Not he hasn't even put his foot in the house literally. Take his sword and not his armor. You can imagine he's probably unbuckling the sword putting it up this the armor and then Giblin comes, you want to rest the angels are not going to rest. And Allah is commanding you to go to the federal Cordova and

00:03:59--> 00:04:47

I am heading out there right now. For any Mazel Zulu Allah be him. I'm going to shake the earth for them now. I'm going to cause the cells dissolved underneath them now. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew that the war was not yet over, that there would not be given even a single day. And this is literally the morning of that literally. You can imagine, you know, the relief and the gratitude and the concept of just relaxing, but no, there's a bigger thing to deal with. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent a crier throughout the entire city that whoever hears, must obey, and nobody is allowed to pray ourselves, except at Bonnaroo Cordova. Now you suddenly and

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

hijo como la sala Illa FIBA nikolova you all have to pray acid and Bono colada that's two hours away. There is no time to even relax, right and this was a severe direction.

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Command and order law you suddenly and you cannot pray also accepted by new Korea. No rest at all. And this headed by the way is Mustafa Cali every book of Haddad mentioned, this is the famous editor, Bono karela, right that the cry went down around town, no one was going to pray outside except in Bernal forever. Now, quick tangent here. Before we get back to the story. This leads to one of the most interesting episodes in the life of the Prophet system. Let's just pause here the story, let's posit an incident happened that deals with fifth and deriving law. Now the commandment went out. Obviously, not everybody is going to be able to respond immediately. Maybe a few of them

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

have already fallen asleep, maybe a few of them

00:05:46--> 00:06:26

got the message a bit late, whatever the point might be. Obviously, some of them are going to be delayed, maybe a few of them took some time to put it back on and go early and whatnot. So they were arriving in Korea in batches. They were they they left in batches, the binoculars probably an hour walk away, right. So they leaving Medina they're arriving in batches. And some of them quite a lot of them trickled in until McRib is about to set. Right. So it took a while for them to get the message into you know, come in do and realize Medina was much larger than it is now. And there are small settlements far outside the city, not just one large locality. So whatever the case might be

00:06:26--> 00:06:58

quite a lot of them Mashallah to botica. They got to also before they got to binocular before also before mostly of time, basically. So they prayed also, at this proper time, but there were quite a lot that were on their way to bundle quite a lot. And the sun is about to set. And if the sunsets also time is over, obviously, right Mongolia time is going to come. So what happened, the Sahaba that we're in this stage of getting to bundle karela they began to have a bit of a back and forth. Should we pray answer

00:06:59--> 00:07:16

now, because if we don't we're gonna miss it. Or should we follow what the prophet system said and not previously until we get to boca de la, even if we miss it? Right? This is now a an issue here. That should we pray also right here and now.

00:07:18--> 00:07:24

Because we're in the process of saying don't pronounce it till you get to Bono Cordova, it's basically an expression that says Hurry up.

00:07:25--> 00:08:03

It doesn't need to be held at literal face value. And he didn't expect that some of us would be in this period, that area, it would take quite a while for us to get there. So if acid is going to be finishing, surely we had better prayer so quickly is gonna take five minutes, and then we'll get to Bonnaroo corridor, you know, right after modeling fine. Or if the process of them said nobody should press the button, whatever this means, even if the timing finishes, we shouldn't press them until we get to write the so have a different back and forth. And they couldn't reach a consensus. So what happened? The some of them decided to pray right then and there. And the other said, No, we're not

00:08:03--> 00:08:17

going to pray till we get to know Carla. So they different amongst each other. And this shows us that when equally qualified which their heads make an ht had, then no ht hat is binding on the other which they hit.

00:08:19--> 00:08:37

In other words, when equally qualified people now that's the key with all respects somebody who has a steady shot, he is not qualified to perform which they have. This is the problem of our times. But suppose somebody is qualified, or that the knowledge of this HD hat has nothing to do with the text of the Quran and Sunnah. But it has to do with

00:08:38--> 00:08:43

a knowledge of the compass geography science, for example, which direction is Scribbler?

00:08:44--> 00:09:18

Which direction is the Qibla will lie the greatest island in the world who has studied around soonish area, but he doesn't know the rising and setting of the sun and east and west. Most of us are more knowledgeable in this island about the direction of the Scribbler, because most scholars have not spent their time studying some basic, you know, a boy scouts would know more than I would know. Right? Boy Scouts would know more than I wouldn't, about directions and whatnot. This is not an HD hat that has to do with the text of the show. Do you get the point? Right? So when it comes to such that or even wish they had that has to do with the text of the [???]tier and the person is

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

qualified, he makes it he had

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

then he's not obliged to follow somebody else's.

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

Because this is exactly what happened here. The Sahaba are qualified to perform real he had they made he had some of them did this. Some of them did that what happened? They each follow their heart. And they didn't criticize each other unless you decided that right now. The Prophet says and when he got to bundle Cordova again, this is the part of the fifth issue. We'll get to the story again. They told him what happened. And they said some of us prayed and some of us didn't pray. Some of us prayed before it said some of us didn't pray until after mothership. So we have called but basically we prayed Sakaba Hold on. And what does the headspace

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

The processor system did not criticize either party. He did not criticize either party, and he left it to be he let it be. And this shows us a very, very profound matter.

00:10:15--> 00:10:30

By the way, some reports which are weak, and there are not authentic, he said both of you have done correct. This is not authentic, the correct version, he didn't criticize either he left it to be right. This shows us many things. The first thing that it shows us,

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

apart from the fact that he had is not followed by those who are qualified themselves. The second thing I guess, is we The second thing is this shows us is that

00:10:40--> 00:10:45

the truth, the ultimate truth, even in matters of fear

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

is one.

00:10:49--> 00:11:24

How do we know this? Even though the head it has been used to prove it is multiple, by the way, the same idiot with who has multiple? How do we know this? The scholars say when the Prophet system gave his commandment law, you suddenly an adequate answer in Laffy bunu karela. There is no doubt that he would have intended one of the two meanings. He didn't intend both clearly. It's logical, he would have been had in one of the two, he either meant Hurry up, and if it is late, then you pray there, or he literally my password over there. Number two, the Sahaba they differed in two camps. There was no third camp that maybe he intended both.

00:11:25--> 00:12:07

Each camp thought they had understood the correct intent of the Sharia. Right? Neither of them said, Oh, he must have intended both. And it is illogical and frankly, against the language against common sense to say he intended both because nobody intends both of you to give a command you want either this or that. And this is the predominant position in particular of the Han Abdullah of the solar fifth scholars, this is an issue is truth. And it's also a theological issue. By the way, one of the things that the two overlap is truth, one or multiple headed hepcat added Allah, this is a theological and political issue, right? is truth one, or is it multiple issues of faith. And the

00:12:07--> 00:12:15

position which makes the most sense is that truth is one. But a person who mistakes

00:12:17--> 00:12:29

who mistakenly misses the truth will not be sinful, rather, they will be rewarded. Right, so we differentiate between truth and between reward between truth and between reward.

00:12:31--> 00:12:39

And this is proven explicitly in the hadith of Bokhari that the process of said either they hadn't had chemo for, for asaba drawn when.

00:12:41--> 00:13:23

And this hadith explicitly proves the truth is one where did the process of say, if the hacking literally hacky means a ruler, but it means over here in which to hit, if the judge, if anyone judges, and they're qualified to justice understood, and they are correct, they will get to rewards. And if they are incorrect, they will get one reward? Notice, he didn't say they're both correct, you can't be both correct. At any given instance, and time for a single person to do a single action, it is either wajib almost to have or macro or micro or heroin, or MOBA. It can't be multiple at the same time, you get the point you for the same person, the same deed, the same thing, you can have

00:13:23--> 00:13:29

two scholars give two different photos. Okay, but in the eyes of Allah, one of them has got to be right.

00:13:31--> 00:14:11

Now, if the mujtahid genuinely made a mistake, what did the processor say? If he's mistaken, he'll still get one. Right? And this headache proves it. That the Profit System did not criticize either of the two camps. Because it's a done deal. Who knows what's going to happen not to say you are right or you're wrong, who would benefit? The ones who would be wrong would feel very, and for what because this is not going to be repeated. And that's why he didn't clarify what he intended, because it's a one off situation. Had this been a recurring thing, then of course, he must have clarified, but this is literally a one off, there's never going to be a second repeat lasallian

00:14:13--> 00:14:35

is only going to be one time, because they understood misunderstood one of the two. And it's an honest misunderstanding. And there's no point poking or prodding, the one that's misunderstood, call us Let the matter be. So he didn't criticize either of the two. Right? And here we find one of the most interesting and fascinating issues, which we still struggle with to this day.

00:14:36--> 00:14:42

And that is, how literal should we be to the text of the Quran and Sunnah?

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

How literal should we be and can we use a little bit of rationality or not? Right? And this is in matters of faith in matters of Akita. We believe in middle age and Allah speaks in animal hype about human life. So we accept it as it is. We don't use rationality to reinterpret in midlife, if Allah describes the age.

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

through the process of describes as applicable. This is animal type animals, if there's no rationality, simply beliefs around what we're talking about laws of Islam. This is an issue here, laws of Islam, when it comes to laws of Islam.

00:15:14--> 00:15:50

There have been trends from the time of the Sahaba. And this is the evidence. And these trends continue up until our times amongst the Maasai. And amongst modern which decades, if the Hadith says x, but we kind of sort of understand the reason why X was said, and that reason doesn't seem to apply right now. Can we kind of sort of relax x? For example, there are so many controversy, where does one begin, and let's just stick with stuff that is classical as well. I don't want to go into the modern stuff, the classical stuff, for example, the issue of women traveling without a modem.

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

The Hadees is very explicit.

00:15:54--> 00:16:29

Whoever believes in a lot in the last day, should not allow a woman to travel for three days without a man and one headed for one day without a mountain. Right? But can we say, look, that was a time in a place where, you know, there was so much harm, there was so much danger a woman traveling alone alone knows what's going to happen. These days. If you put a your wife or your sister in the in the in the plane and you drop her off at the airport, somebody's going to pick up the next airport, you know, that's as safe as it can be. It's not the same as walking in the desert, etc, etc. Can we kind of sort of use a little bit of rationality and not be so literalist, in this regard? You have

00:16:29--> 00:17:07

opinions on the whole site, right? You still have those that are very literalist, you say no, the processor said it. And he said it. And others say, Well, I mean, he said it and of course, he said it, but there was a reason why he said it. And in our times that reason, be a little bit more, you know, open and disregard. Now, this just one of literally hundreds of examples that come up. And frankly, this is one of the biggest issues that fuqaha have to deal with all the time. And what we learned from this incident, brothers and sisters, those who are more literal, should not be so critical of those who are a little bit rational, and vice versa. These trends go back to the Sahaba.

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

But I have a very big caveat, a very big point to put here. And that is

00:17:13--> 00:17:56

only those who are qualified to give fatwas should give to us. And if reputable scholars differ amongst themselves, then that's reputable scholars deferring the big problem comes especially especially in western lands. Why because in eastern lands, it's impossible for ajar Hill to rise up because there are too many erodium but in western lands, when they really are so few of them are, well I any, mostly the people without in are the ones that are at the front of gatherings and Fatah when we seek refuge from being amongst them, oh, the villa, the villa, that we go beyond what Allah has given us of our knowledge, but in this in this environment that we're in is very common for

00:17:56--> 00:18:27

people to just read a few things and then the only Mashallah Tabata Kala they become share Google and look at Wikipedia. But this is the issue that I want to point out that if reputable scholars have a spectrum of opinion, right, and of course, the biggest problem we have in America, you know, I hate I do not like this group at all the progressives and the modernists that, you know, for them, there is no huddle and how long the Hillel is whatever the flavor is, the month becomes a lot, you know, so whatever the culture says is highlighted becomes that they're not qualified to pronounce vertix these people, they haven't studied the Quran, they can't even recite Fatiha properly. So

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

they're not qualified to pronounce vertix about Islam. We're talking about reputable scholars, if rouda ma who are trained in the field, and they have established credentials, and the way that I put this I know this is a tangible way is very relevant for North America. The way that I put this, I always say I'm not a doctor, at least of that kind. Right. So I'm not a doctor, right? At least of your kind. I'm not, I'm not your type of doctor, I'm done. I'm a different type now, but not your type of doctor. Your type of doctor. Yes. I'm not your type of doctor. Okay. So, suppose what's your speciality again?

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

ICU.

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

lungs Make up your mind? Does he know?

00:19:04--> 00:19:08

Okay. Okay. So I see you as long as they didn't know that we could.

00:19:09--> 00:19:53

Okay, ICU palace. So speciality is ICU. Okay, now, who has the right to criticize positions you hold me who doesn't know anything about ICU? Or who? Who's ICU? So you're also ICU. So you also have established credentials. You also have experience, right? You also have reputation. Now you come along, and let's say Come on, you can't do this procedure on this patient. Because XYZ, if I come along and say, Oh, that looks so weird. You're sticking a needle up here. You're doing that? What is my point? You see, this is how the progresses when they criticize fifth. This is how they start sound to somebody who was a puppy. It's like you're not a mathematician. And then you start saying,

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

why is a circle that which has no sides Who said this? Why can't we say a circle has three sides. You see this is how they start.

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

When they come from out of the tradition, now somebody from within the tradition comes, they know the system and how it works. Now criticism is acceptable, right? And this is what we find from this incident of the Sahaba. I know this attended, but it's very relevant. There's a spectrum of opinion. There are opinions that are literalist, how to feed. All of this was the person who said End of story. You know, that's good. It's shows demand and once you want to submit, then there's a position that's a little bit more rationalist. Okay, the Hadith is there, we accept it, but can we fine tune it to their circumstances doesn't apply in and as long as the people who are making these claims are

00:20:38--> 00:20:53

of the tradition, right? of the play, the people who are qualified, that are handed that let the scholars talk. The problem comes when outsiders come in, they think they know, this is where the problem comes. But this problem of literalism and whatnot, we've had it, it's not even called the problem. It's a trend.

00:20:54--> 00:21:33

rationality and literalism any we ever had it since the time of the Sahaba. And this had this shows us right, one group said, Well, he didn't literally mean make us of cobalt, he meant Hurry up. And we're not able to hurry up. So help us let's just pray also here, and then we'll we'll you know, free market abundance, proper time. And the other group said, No, he said, also, he met us or call us we're gonna process even if it's in venue for a classic example of liberalism versus a bit of rationality and Hadith as well as the chaos, these are go back to the mothership, they go back to modern trends as well. And Allah knows best. If you listen to my fatawa, you find that I am kind of

00:21:33--> 00:21:58

sort of both I and this is the way I think is healthy you used to take from here you take from there, Allah knows best. In any case, that's the issue of the Burnham corridor, which is the fifth issue. Now let's get back to and by the way, all the way around the study by nucleolar, this is what they care about it right? This is the main issue of the bundle oleva. And that is, is there one truth or multiple truths, and you know what not this is when they talk about blue color that this is that tangent, they go into, in any case, back to our seat, electric, whatever. So

00:22:00--> 00:22:41

now you suddenly and forever. So the Sahaba eventually got there of the first to get there, because the process of incentive there was it in the audit. And even before that he was sent immediately. And the Prophet has told him to stick your flag outside. This is now call for war. You're not leaving. So I live near bizarrely arrived with his contingent. And he basically put the dariah he put the flag that were mean business now. And so he got there. And when they saw him and they saw the flag, even as Hawk says, they began to boom, they began shut him cursing and vile things about the profits or send them, you know, the most foul words and he didn't narrate it. It's not about

00:22:41--> 00:23:02

other generic what they said. And he didn't narrate it either. But they started saying the most vulgar things about the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. The process of also was making his way there, and he passed by a group of Sahaba. And he said them Has anybody preceded us Who else has arrived before me. And so they said, We haven't seen anybody except the here I'll be writing on the white middle.

00:23:04--> 00:23:39

Who is the hell can be riding on a white mill, Jubilee rally his salon, right, we only saw that he had just wandering all by himself in the middle of nowhere on a beautiful meal. And of course, the here as we have said more than once was one of the most handsome if not the most handsome of the men of Medina. And so whenever Julian would want to be seen by the other men, he simply would take on the form of the hair, so that they knew that there's somebody but they wouldn't think he's an angel. So he would take on the structure or the form of the most handsome man of Medina and that is the hail Calvary so they said, We just saw the hair on a beautiful white meal just walking away

00:23:39--> 00:24:03

nonchalantly past right they didn't realize this is of course God, are they his setup and so the process of said had a god that was you believe that he Allah has sent him users in and out of them into him to shake the ground from under their feet. And the Prophet system arrived. And when daddy saw him, he rushed out to intercede to intercept him. And he said Yasuda law Why don't you just camp over here? Why

00:24:05--> 00:24:37

didn't want the process of God here? Look at his protection. Why don't we just stay over here? I'll set it up for you here. And so the process of him said perhaps they're saying things about because he made it understood what do you do you think I'm not going to understand what's happening like you want me to come all the way here for what perhaps they're saying things about me that are irritating so he said yes yes. Hello they are you know, so he wanted to protect them so much that you know, stay far away from the the fortress I forgot to mention of course, because every every you who try to have a fortress, okay. I mean, I forgot to mention this, the bundle Hodeidah like all of the

00:24:37--> 00:24:59

other use of the tribe. They have a fortress that was the architecture that was their style. And as we had said some of the Osen hunters had attempted to imitate so the rich amongst them had you know, cheap imitations but not the real deal. These guys had the real deal. So they have their massive fortress that is protected fortress, it's it's completely you know, the Muslims don't have the technology at this level to

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Break it there, they have to simply lay siege to it. So the process of them said, perhaps they said something to irritate me, or to irritate you about me. So he said, Yes. So what did the process of him say? He said, once they see me, they will not be able to say those things. Then he knew this group, that they're saying this behind my back, if they see me, they can never say this, right? And so he went all the way up and he set his camp right there, in front of the fortress. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that or group of the who didn't allow humiliate you heard, aren't you now humiliated? And hasn't Allah's anger come upon you? Are you now going to admit at least right that

00:25:42--> 00:26:11

follow us is over now? And they said, Yeah, awesome. Awesome. You were never one who acted foolishly meaning Please have mercy, please spirit. So you never want who acted foolishly, right? You're always a wise man, you and everyone who watched who acted foolishly. And so the profitsystem surrounded them and told them to surrender and they refused. So the seed was set up. So they kept around the entire fortress. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into almost one month.

00:26:13--> 00:26:53

All the books of Sierra pretty much agree that this siege lasted for 25 days, and 100 most likely lasted for 20 or 25 days. So the entire ordeal, and they're literally walking distance from their houses, but there's wars going on. Right? The entire ordeal almost two months lasted. This is now very tense the situation, right? So for 25 days there are surrounding now there is no battle or war, because they're Academy. This is us. They're surrounded, they can't do anything. And they're outnumbered as well by a factor of probably two to one. So it wasn't as if it was a massive outnumbering you have the the blue corridor, you have the Muslims. And so the process of surrounded

00:26:53--> 00:27:33

them. And of course inside are of course creating a club remember who the leader of the balloon elite, right, who through his own arrogance and foolishness found himself inside. Right? And of course, they have gab even said who is the leader of the bubble forever. And as the days turned into weeks, God said to his people, all my people, I suggest one of three choices. Let's do one of three things. Okay, when did this happen? We don't obviously, nobody's going to put a schedule of when this happened. But we can assume sometime towards the end when the situation is getting tense. God said, let's give one of three choices I give you. Number one, we accept this man's religion.

00:27:34--> 00:28:15

For what law he we all know that he is the Prophet, that the one that has been predict predicted in our books. We all know this. I mean, come on, this is an open secret. Now we all know, this is the man that has been predicted in our books. And if we do so, then our lives and our property will be safe, call us we'll get off there. If we accept Islam, because Islam forgives everything. Everybody knows that the time Islam forgives every sin. So if we accept Islam, that Hamas, we are all safe, they said, We're lucky we will never leave our religion, we're never going to leave the laws and the the total, we're never going to leave our religion. Now interesting here, that when they're about to

00:28:15--> 00:28:49

die, basically, he bit he says the secret that everybody knew, but it's too embarrassed to admit. And that is, we all know, this is the one. You know, when it's literally towards the end. Now he opens up and he says it to his people we all know, and they didn't deny it. By the way. None of them said no, no, I still have my doubts. I mean, by now especially who can have any doubts, all of the miracles have appeared, everything is clear. And this really is the worst type of arrogance, which is to know the truth, and then still not follow it. This is the worst type of arrogance that is imaginable. So they said we're never going to give up our Deen. So they said, okay, option number

00:28:49--> 00:28:57

two, which is much more gruesome. Option number two is what? Let us kill our own families.

00:28:58--> 00:29:13

And then charge outside with our swords drawn until one of us to is eliminated. And if we die, then call us we have left nothing to worry about. And if we win, there are plenty of women that we can marry afterwards.

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

So the second option is

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

Kamikaze

00:29:22--> 00:29:59

Kamikaze Okay. Yes, in a way. Yes, exactly. The second option is this, get rid of our own family so that we don't have to worry about what's gonna happen to them. We are going to do this job. And then we just unsheath our swords and barge out colors last month. And it was a far shot chance, but it was possible they're outnumbered one to two Max 123. It's not as if the odds are completely impossible, right? So is it fellas? Let's do this. And of course, I mean, there's no way this is going to happen. So they say we're not going to kill our own family. Obviously, there's no means understood. They're not going to do that. And so they turn that option down.

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

And so the third option, he said was, okay, if you refuse the first two, then the only option we have is we surprise attack them. And the only day that will be a surprise is the day of Sabbath, which is our surprise, basically, they wouldn't be expecting us to break our own Sabbath. Right. So let's attack on our set, so that they are not expecting it. So we have the advantage of the seventh and attacking them. And of course, his people said that we will never break the Sabbath, the Sabbath, the Sabbath? Don't you know that if we do this alone will send the punishment and whatnot upon us. This is to them. That's the number one law, you know, not even following the process, but

00:30:40--> 00:31:11

breaking the laws of the Sabbath. And so they refuse to do this. And Caleb got so angry at them. He said, as even as Hawk says, He says, well, law he since the day your mothers have given birth to you, none of us has ever made up one decision in their life. Right? You're so indecisive, you can't make up anything, I'm giving you three options, and you refused all of them. Then they sent shares of no face as a messenger to the process of one of their one of their own. And he begged and he pleaded and he said, Oh, Mohammed, so seldom give to us what you gave to the balloon,

00:31:12--> 00:31:51

which was the burden of your work, leave your properties, and take your families and whatever the Campbells can carry. Right? This was what happens to but another, give us that conditioning. Okay, we're happy. Okay, you can take our properties and possessions, but sorry, our lands, not our properties, our lands, and we'll take the money, and we'll take the camels, we'll take the families and we will go the process of said no. comes back with the second offer. Help us keep the camels and the property just save us. Now they know they understand that we said this many weeks now they know exactly what they're in for. Right? Let us go with our families. Okay, keep all of the properties.

00:31:52--> 00:32:32

And the President said No, only an unconditional surrender. I will not accept anything less than an unconditional surrender. And this shows us by the way, and I've said this again for the last five weeks. treachery and lying is never allowed. I mean, we know they're going to die. We know that but he did not give them a false promise and then got them out and then did it No. Because you're not allowed to be treacherous and treasonous. You're not allowed to be double space double double faced about this. They wanted a condition he could have said okay hallas Yes. And then when they come out, do whatever he wanted, but no, he's a man of his word and treachery is not allowed in any

00:32:32--> 00:33:17

circumstance. And he said No, only an unconditional surrender. So shazza goes shares goes back and then comes again him or somebody else and he says that we want Abu Baba to come inside our fortress sent for Abu Baba so the process of said hello school Abu Baba go. Now who is Abu Baba Bulava was one of the hosts and the Bernal Cordova had the alliance with the hosts who ever had that treaty with the house just like the burner lead had with the hostage. So the the the O 's are very friendly. They were very friendly. They were the they were the allies of the balloon of the aquarium and that is exactly the corollaries of janelia. And Abu Baba especially, was a close confidant and

00:33:17--> 00:33:54

friend in the days of Jay Z. Right. So he was one of those whom they knew very well he would visit their their their fortress, he would drink with them. There was a friendship that lasted for many years. So they said call Abu Baba out of all of the people of Medina, they were the closest to him. So Abu Baba went in. And Abu Baba, of course, he is a great Sahabi he has witnessed butter in that he was technically in the army, but the process of them sent him to do an errand. So he didn't actually fight it. But but because he had wanted to participate, he got to share a burden. And he's written amongst other you. So he's technically a buddy. And he's also participated in Ohio. Then he

00:33:54--> 00:34:32

participated other battles and he has a good record. But this was a slip that was about to happen. This was the slip that was about to happen, a human slip, a human slip that really comes from, you know, the friendship and compassion that he had with them in the days of Julian the days of Islam. So he entered the fortress, and in his house says he was surrounded by the people. They're all like, so happy to see him and also grieved. And remember, this is not a siege, probably we're talking about the 20th or 2030. Very close to the end. You can imagine how tense they must be. And the women and children began crying and begging for mercy from him as if he's gonna do anything. Right. And so

00:34:32--> 00:34:53

him in his house says his heart became soft for them. Because they were friends in the day, his heart became soft for them. And they said, What do you think, should we surrender or not? They're asking him should we surrender or not? And so Abu Baba said, yes, you should. But then he made a motion like this.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

meaning you're gonna have to surrender but

00:35:01--> 00:35:16

He said as soon as I said this disabled Ababa speaking, as soon as I said this will law he my feet had not moved from my place, except that I realized, I had been treacherous to Allah and His messenger.

00:35:18--> 00:36:00

I am disloyal to Allah and His Messenger, this is a piano. This is a piano to Allah, I mean, meaning that I am showing them something that Firstly, he wasn't 100% sure about because apostles him didn't say this, right. But secondly, whose side is he on? After all that has happened? Who side is the and this is a matter of, we call it really a water and bottle and that is loyalties whose loyalty do you have? Is it a line is messenger or is it the bundle forever, and to show sympathy in such a tense situation to the enemy, after all that they have done? This is what the Fianna really was. Right? And so he said, I hadn't even moved from my feet. My feet had moved excuse me, except that I knew

00:36:00--> 00:36:37

that I had betrayed a lot and His Messenger and he says that he left the fortress, bypassing the army, bypassing the process and we just went away. And he went immediately to the messenger of the Prophet sallallahu it he was sending them and he tied himself to one of the pillars which is called the pillar of Abu Baba or the pillar of repentance It is called and if you go to the masjid which inshallah Shaolin two weeks will be there inshallah, those of us who are going inshallah Tada, we will show you I will show you this pillar and it actually has on it, the pillar of Toba and inshallah remember this story, then this is the pillar of tober. Still, we know where it is, right?

00:36:38--> 00:37:14

Abu Baba tied himself to this pillar. And he said, that will law he, I shall remain tied to this pillar, until Allah accepts my repentance. And I shall never venture to the bundle Cordova again, for I will never be in an area where I disobeyed a line His Messenger, which shows us even the area where you disagreed on his messenger should avoid it. Right? I don't want to be in that land where I disobeyed Allah and His messenger. Now, he didn't come out from the promises and perspective. He didn't see him. After a while, he asked what happened to Abu Baba, eventually, the new spreads, they find out, he's tied himself to the masjid, they come back and they tell the Prophet so seldom what

00:37:14--> 00:37:40

has happened. So he said, if he had come to me, I would have asked the Lord to forgive him. But now that he has done this to himself, I can't do anything. Why? Because he's made a promise to us never. This is another that will lie I'm not going to give from this place until Allah reveals that over the problem is I can't do anything. This is another and yufuin of another Allah says in the Quran, they fulfilled or another and he made another

00:37:42--> 00:38:04

and once you make another if you say, well law here, I'm gonna do this and this and you meet another, well, then you are obliged to fulfill another to Allah, basically, with conditions that are beyond the scope right now. But yes, you're supposed to fulfill it. So he said, I can't do anything he made enough. And to finish the trip, I will do Baba. So he's remained title one was for how long? Probably more than a week, you remain tied to this post. And

00:38:05--> 00:38:38

after the incident are all finished in the process and returned one day at fetcher. One day at fetcher, the process of woke up to go pray in the masjid and he was laughing and domicilium I said, attacker to swallow what has caused you to laugh out of hakala who cineq which is a very good expression in Arabic which translates as May you ever be laughing as long as you live is a good expression in Arabic that you know it's something you know and you always be happy you know, attack Allah who cynic and so what has caused you to laugh at this time in the early morning. So the process of said Allah has accepted the job of Abu Baba

00:38:40--> 00:39:19

So, oma Selma said, should I not go out and tell him because almost Emma's house was right connected to our issues. And at that stage at that stage, oma cinemas House did have a direct door later on. All these doors were shut except for the two of Arusha but at that stage oma cinemas door also had a direct access to the masjid. So she said Should I not go out and tell abou Baba, and this was before hijab had been revealed as well. So there is no concept of hijab at this point in time. And so the president said yes, if you want so almost cinema comes rushing out and she says to Abu Baba that up should thank Allah be happy. Allah has accepted your repentance and all of the Sahaba who are

00:39:19--> 00:39:59

waiting for God to go and they want to unleash a release him, you know from the chains and shackles. And he said no, until the prophets are seldom comes and he unties me himself, to be sure that Allah has accepted my Toba to be sure that there's nothing left until the Prophet system comes in and ties me himself. And so the Prophet system before praying for God, he went and untied Abu Baba with his own hands, and then led the son of the treasure and this is the famous story of Wu Baba, and it is said the two verses were revealed because of Abu Baba, the first suitor and file verse 27. Yeah, it will lead in amarula Tohono la hora pseudo tahuna magnetic quantum Tana moon. Are you

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

Who believes do not betray the trust of Allah and the messenger and betray your own trust as a Muslim? While you know you're not supposed to do this don't don't betray the trust level one is messenger, one one rewire says this was revealed because of Abu Baba. And then the repentance of Abu Baba is Surah tober verse 102, pseudo tober verse 102, which says Medina teller fool with an OB him Hello to Ahmed inside the handwara say and as a Lavanya to bother him. And there are others amongst us a habit Well, I've heard him tell a fool bit Ruby him by the way has an adversity and others how they used to say, this verse is the most optimistic verse in the whole Oran for me. This verse is

00:40:41--> 00:41:22

the most optimistic verse, memorize it, pay attention to it. What are 13 there are others amongst them not as elite as the ones that have gone by, there's a lower level now what else I need a total fool beaten over him. They recognize their sins they admitted they have done since I taught off with little beam holla to Amman and saw the handwara say they have mixed up good deeds and bad deeds. They mix them up they have some good and they have some bad as a Lavanya tuba the gentleman who may or may Allah Allahu Allah might forgive them as a low and they've been busted every time Allah says I said he will do it as a Lavanya to validate him. Allah might forgive them and a lot of food Rahim

00:41:22--> 00:42:00

so abou Baba it was revealed because of him he has so many good deeds he has bothered he has offered as this and then he fell into some wrong things as well. If they have mixed up good and bad, hello, we'll forgive them in shallow data. I sent a boss that he said that this is our job is the most optimistic verse in the book of Allah because insha Allah, all of us and we have no doubt evil, but inshallah we've also done some good inshallah. So we are of those insha Allah that we acknowledge our tariff will be domestic key, we acknowledge we are sinful, and we have mixed up the good and bad deeds. May Allah forgive us, allowing you to bother him. In any case, this is a boo Baba, now we get

00:42:00--> 00:42:38

back to the story where Abu Baba left off when he exited the fortress. So 24 days have gone the next day is going to be 2050 the very last night now. And apparently they decide to tell us we don't have any option where to surrender. We're inferring this because of what happens now. They decide they're going to surrender now they couldn't have lasted forever how long the suppliers are going to cut off. There's no escape. Although the Muslims are surrounded the fortress there really is nothing they can do. The process is adamant unconditional surrender. Holla. unconditional. What can they do then there's no alternative. Let's just move on then. And so the night of the 24th very minor

00:42:38--> 00:42:49

incident, but it's still very interesting that in the middle of the night, of course, the guards are surrounding the fortress. The Muslim army, I should say they're surrounding, you know, the fortress. So they hear somebody come outside

00:42:51--> 00:43:42

the center, he says Who is it? So the man says I'm an urbanist. I'm an urban side. And one of the century one of the Muslims were standing there was Mohammed Abdullah, some of the famous Mohammed the newest Lama, and he recognized Who is this salmon? Who has this hammer. Hammer was one of perhaps two or maybe even the only out of the Bernal Cordova who had vocally refused to follow what gab even medica. cabinet cabinet said had done. And he said, I will never betray Mohammed says he's a good he hasn't accepted itself. I will never betray the promise. And he vocally opposed his people. So he wasn't happy with what they had done. But he's in the fortress. That's there's his

00:43:42--> 00:44:20

that's where he's living. Right now. We're assuming this, this is what this is not mentioned. When he hears they're going to surrender the next day. He wants to just try his other to get out. Because he's not he doesn't feel a part of his people anymore. And he's opposed them because of this issue. So he leaves, he leaves the people and he was the only one or maybe there was one more there's enough how many but one of the very few perhaps definitely the main one who had expressed his opposition to what his people have done. That is very important. Because he's with them, but he's not with them. Right? You get the point here. So Mohammed knows the middle of the night, Mohammed

00:44:20--> 00:44:59

Muslim is basically has to make a decision now. Do we kill him? Do we imprison him? Do we take him to the process of them? And so he basically says a very eloquent phrase, which translates into Simple English as Oh a lot. overlook my overlooking of him. Just forgive me for forgiving him basically, like he has a soft spot for what he's done. Now you're trying to leave, so he simply let him go. He didn't do anything. He let him go. And it is said that he made his way to Medina spent the night in Medina, and the next morning, he just disappeared and Alon knows nobody knows what his end was. He just left the city and when

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

When the Prophet says and found out about what happened, he said, that was a man whom Allah saved because of his honesty. That was a man who will love saved because he fulfilled his part of the bargain meaning, okay, he didn't convert, but he didn't want his people to do what he did. And so a love made a way out for him. He didn't the process of did not get angry at Mohammed, every Muslim, right? That he said, okay, he did what he did. And Allah saved because he was a man who wanted to fulfill the treaty. So look, and this shows us this is the key point here. We're going to go back to this over and over at the end of today, that these people were punished for what they did and not

00:45:36--> 00:46:18

who they were. And this incident is one of those many indications, he did not convert. He remained upon the religion who, right but even the process and remarked, this is a little gift Allah gave him because he was true to his covenant. He was faithful. So Allah saved him. Because of his honesty. The next morning, the message came that they're willing to surrender palace, they're willing to surrender. Now the message has come. They are all inside the fortress. They're all inside the fortress, right? So immediately, the boss who of course, are the Holy Father, the allies of the vulnerable wherever the Oh surround the Profit System, they began pleading, because as of yet the

00:46:18--> 00:46:59

processor has not said what he's going to do. Now. Abu Baba and others have understood what he wants to be done. Right? But he hasn't said it. And because he hasn't said it the most remember the days of Jackie Leah their transactions, their friendships, there's what not and they start begging and pleading with the Prophet. So send them that spare them and one of them says Jada Sula. You spared the hustler just tribe spare our tribe as well. Which is the hustlers tribe. Who the right Who do you spared them? Right. And the other one before the penalty and pain okay before them the bundle novia was the recent ones it just happened recently. You just spared the bundle novia and you did it

00:46:59--> 00:47:00

for Who did you do it for?

00:47:03--> 00:47:39

Abdullah Abdullah, a missile remember I believe new baby saloon kept on begging him from the husband. He's from the husband's right. And the process of said whom the cost you give them two, okay with the conditions you wanted, basically, right, which was what, let them take their money and their properties as as much as their camels can carry. Remember, they took even their doors. So he gave them that. So now the US are feeling what we deserve the same treatment for our group. But somehow there's a world of a difference between what the bonanova did and what they've been created. There's a world of a difference, right? But the house, I mean, they are humans as well. And they

00:47:39--> 00:47:48

want mercy for their own friends that they had. So they're begging they're pleading what to be done. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that,

00:47:49--> 00:47:53

will you be happy if one of your own decides their fate?

00:47:54--> 00:48:41

will this do enough? If one of your own decides their fate? They said, of course, but I also will Allah. So he said that they've been, I have chosen for you side a bit more as your leader, your own leader colors, so I'm not going to decide anymore. That will lie This is what can we say? The Messenger of Allah, stepping down from his prerogative to give the ruling and saying you guys decide. This is I mean, what can we say? Even though he knows that if he said it, they would do it. But he's a leader, and the leader has to gain his followers and not impose himself on even if he's rasulillah system. There's a hikma in dealing with your own people. And so he says to them, how us

00:48:41--> 00:49:22

your leader sided been wise, it will be his verdict. Right? And this is just an amazing, amazing facet of the sealer that he's willing to step down and allow, sadly been wise to judge in a judgment that is really the right of Allah and the right of the messenger. So setup, but he's willingly said he's willing to compromise his willingness. Okay, so they've been wired is able to judge now, sadly been wired, of course, he's been dealt that death wound, remember, right, this entire, the deep artery has been cut right over here. There is no healing. And I have been wired up until this point. 25 days have gone by. He is still in the tent. That was literally the hospital tent that they had.

00:49:22--> 00:49:59

Literally It was like a clinic tent. And there was this as a side point here that there was the equivalent of a nurse amongst the Sahaba and her name was Roy fader with Dan row fader. Andrew fader in his house says she was the volunteer always to take care of the wounded and to deal with the sick. This was her job, which is a nurse basically, right? She had volunteered to be that nurse, little fader was her name, and she had a tent. That was the tent of the sick. It's basically a hospital of our times, right? And she's the nurse that's cleaning the wound and taking care of their needs and giving them food and water and voluntary she was doing this piece of vitola right

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

So he wasn't the 10th of Rue fader Still, he wasn't a 10th of a fader still bleeding, 25 days non stop bleeding, can you tell us I mean, you know, the wound is not going to heal, he's going to die soon. And so a group of the new cinema became very happy, they rushed back to Medina. And they said, the processor is calling you and you're about to judge between, you know, the bundle karela. And they put him on a meal. And they and he was bandaged, and he's still bandages, the wound is still bleeding. And so he is slowly taken all the way to the tribe, or the the the area of the bundle forever. And

00:50:38--> 00:50:43

on the way there when he was walking, the O surrounded him, the ones that were with him.

00:50:45--> 00:51:13

And they continue to tell him, you have to be merciful, reminding him of the days of jelenia. Remember this, and they did this. And we did that. And this that. And one of them said, that you have only been chosen by the process of him because you're going to be merciful. That's why he chose you. Right. And so he said, when this was said to him, he said, that, now is the time for sad, to not care about their criticism of any critic, when it comes to Allah and His messenger.

00:51:15--> 00:51:18

Now is the time though his own people, all of them.

00:51:19--> 00:51:53

Were hoping for a verdict. And sad says, Now is the time meaning I'm about to die, if I'm not going to be faithful now, when is there going to be a faithful time? And Subhanallah? Compare this with even a Bhupati or anybody else at their deathbed, right? Compare this with anyone else, that at the end of their lives, people want to go out with a bang for their people. Right? They want to leave the legacy. People will speak about me in this manner. Right? What did Syed say,

00:51:54--> 00:52:41

now is the time, I really should not care about what people think, which is the time to be sincere to align His Messenger. When he said this, it was understood by the iOS, which way side is heading when some of them immediately understood the colors. He has not. He's not going to do what we want him to do. And when he came to the bundle Cordova and the process of them saw him being escorted on the mule. He said to the unsolved, omo LSA Ed can stand up to greet your leader. And there's not a single person in the history of the serum, that the Prophet has ordered others to stand up to greet he himself would not allow the Sahaba to stand up when he walked into a room.

00:52:43--> 00:53:18

And this, by the way, leads to another huge controversy. And fifth, which we don't have time to get into about should you stand when somebody comes or not. There's a huge controversy and, and again, it goes back to what I love and sad. And it goes back to the process of himself not wanting the Sahaba to stand up there seems to be a bit of attention because the process what I'm saying is authentic, whoever loves it, that people stand up for him, let him be prepared to sit down in the fire of hell. Whoever is loves it that people always stand up for him, then let him be prepared for his seating place in general. Now he said this and yet he is telling the unsolved Ooh, in ICU DICOM

00:53:18--> 00:53:46

standard editors multifocal quality was the standard to greet your leader. How do you reconcile long story but shallow, the correct position Mr. manoli, and others they say, whoever has taken this as a habit for himself. And he loves that people do it, then this is what the Hadees applies to. Right. Nobody should expect others to stand up when he enters a room, everybody in the room stanza. This is not the way of of Islam. But once in a while,

00:53:47--> 00:54:04

if a respected elder comes back from a journey or whatnot, and we stand up to greet him a one off not as a regular habit, then this is something that is just isn't wish to have, right. So it is authentically narrated that the process of them when

00:54:05--> 00:54:43

they came to see him after a while that she had been away and she came through, she came to greet him, he stood up to kiss his own doctor, he stood up he was so happy to see here and again he's standing up out of happiness to see you. Right. So it is permissible job is to stand up one off once in a while, and not as a regular habit and custom that when somebody enters and then he expects everybody to stand up. This is not something that we approve of as a customer as a tradition. But if a grandfather comes if you know a guest comes on, you know at your house and you stand up to go greet him. This is that you're standing up to welcome him where he to enter the message you will not

00:54:43--> 00:55:00

stand up for him. Were you in somebody else's house. So you know this is not not standing up. for his sake, you're standing up to greet him as a one off. So this is something that is yet anyway, I didn't want to get to that. That's just the fifth point back to where we were, oh boy, let's say you stand up for your leader. Then the Prophet says that I'm said to sign even

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

Add that your people have chosen you or have accepted you as a judge for how long for this meaning for who? Your people have accepted your judgment for these two now, the binoculars are still inside the fortress, right? All of this is taking place and the Bono karela are away from the scene is between the the not even all of the Sahaba. It's really between the US and the process of the Mahajan and the 100. Raj. Really, they're not as involved, of course, the Mahajan. You know, there's nothing to do with this tribe anywhere and the hundreds, they had animosity with them from the days of God. Remember, that's the point here, the 100, Raj had animosity with this tribe, and the outset

00:55:38--> 00:56:17

animosity of who they are. So frankly, the 100 would not be cared at all if the verdict was given against them, they have no sympathy for them. It's the house that had the sympathy for them. So it's really between the outs and the process of a little bit of, you know, call attention. But even tension maybe is too harsh, but a little bit of difference of opinion about what to be done. So he says, decided, beware as your people have chosen you. So sad says to his people, who not sure do, I I call you to Allah, I tell you to make a promise with Allah, will you listen and obey me? If I give the verdict? Are you now content that once I give the verdict, end of story, you're not going to

00:56:17--> 00:56:59

argue you're not going to debate? And so they said, Yes, that's why we're happy. Yes, it is you. And he, then some Hello, it's a beautiful incident here, he turned to the Prophet system. And out of respect, he lowered his face in front of him. And he said, and you as well. And he cannot just say directly to the process of he lowered his face, because he cannot look up to him and speak to him like this and say, and you as well, your rasulillah you are also content that this is going to be you know, whatever I say will be the final verdict and allow us no criticism afterwards. Right. And the process said yes, we have agreed will lie is just mind boggling to imagine that the profits or

00:56:59--> 00:57:42

send them any what can we say? Well, I mean, this is a leader, isn't it? You know, there are pseudo law. So the lovers and he is willing to go down to the ruling of side they've been wise, just because of the ocers sensibilities, he said, Yes, whatever you decide, it will be done. And so sad immediately, without a second's hesitation, he has been thinking about this verdict from the last 3040 days. He has nothing he has to be any decision about instantaneously. He says, How can we feed him my judgment is them in them is that their men should be executed, and their property distributed, and their women and children be taken captive? instantaneous verdict. This is what

00:57:42--> 00:58:25

needs to be done. They're meant to be executed, their property distributed, and their women and children taken as captive. And as soon as he's This, this, a lot of profitsystem said, while law he said, You have decreed upon them, the Kaaba law hit them in focus a very similar ones. This was the judgment of a law from above the seven heavens. He didn't want to say it, the Prophet says, because of the oaths so he led them basically do it this way. But one side said it, this was the decree of Allah that you have done. And by the way, this shows us Allah is decree is going to be one there's not multiple decrees, it is one decree, but the process was willing, in this case, to for the sake

00:58:25--> 00:59:05

of unity of the oma for the sake of different organic, being gentle with the people to basically have a softer degree, but one side said this, he says, Look, I have come to see him before Camilla he This is the room of Allah min focus on very similar words, literally, mean focus are very similar. It is one of the phrases in the Hadith as well. And when this verdict was given, then, of course, the commandment was given to perform these, these executions. And the men were all tied up. And they were led to an area of the one of the ladies of the Buddha jar owned a vast area, and trenches were dug and the books of Syrah mentioned that all of the male adults were basically taken

00:59:05--> 00:59:35

batches by batches and they were executed. This is the hokum of Allah subhanaw taala upon them, and one of the young men who survived RTL horridly he narrates that I was a zombie. I was a boy that was spared that day because I didn't have hair, which means the adults were the ones that were executed and the young were ended and women were of course, spirit. And it is mentioned a number of stories here who even atop this leader of the bundle, the creator and author

00:59:36--> 00:59:56

when he was led out of the fortress, he was wearing his finest garment, a red Silk Embroidery he had worn his finest garment, and he had used strings to tie it around his body because he didn't want anybody to take it from his body after his death.

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

He wanted to

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

was

01:05:02--> 01:05:43

right before the digital by two years, three years, the Wars of blast were the wars between the US and the hustlers and between the bulk of the bundle novella and the bundle calleva. Right. So in the words of brass sabbatarian face adventure mass, he was saved his life was saved by one of the bundle karela His name is obeyed, they've been bought for the way they've been bought for. So this is a horribly he had saved habitable place a bit Shama. So, Sabbath, then went to the prisoners, he found zubaid, and he said, obey, do you remember me? was basically Of course I remember you. You're the one that I saved the Senate. So he said that it is time for me to repay that favor. Do you wish me

01:05:43--> 01:06:15

to repay that favor? And he said, of course, a generosity from a generous person will always be appreciated. Yeah, I mean, he's about to die, of course. And it is said Zubaydah had now become extremely old by this time. He's, you know, white haired is a very old man. So he sabot goes to the processor and says yellow Sula, please give me Zuma allows you Bay to be to be spared. So the President said he is for you. Okay policies for you. So he goes back to Zoo Bay. And Zubair says Of what use his life without family.

01:06:17--> 01:06:29

So he goes back to the process of him and begs for family and children's as well as there for you. So his wife and his children are spirit. So then he says what? Money Money

01:06:30--> 01:07:09

of what uses life without money? Right. Any key I need? I need my. So back to the process. And what do you think, Alice for you as well. So Pinilla right, then now listen to the other twist at the end, right? Then Zubair says, Where is so and so he mentioned somebody has been killed? Very so and so has been killed, where so he mentioned his own, or he's about to be killed, right? When he realizes that he's gonna be the only one of his tribe basically left, right? Well, one of the few there were only a few that actually did survive. He then said, What is the purpose of life without a hubbub

01:07:10--> 01:07:51

without friends and tribe? And so you send me to my death and serve somebody else. That was what he wanted, right? So he didn't accept any of this. And he in fact, was killed because of this. He was killed because he said he was about two years old man and he said, What's the point of living now how that's just you take care of this. So it was done. Also, one or two others survived it to said that some of the some of the bundle, the bundle, another, sorry, some of the bundle Pereda, some of them had converted to Islam. And so they were spared anybody who had converted to Islam, they were spared. And also, it just said, one or two, maybe maximum four or five shofars. Were done just like

01:07:51--> 01:08:21

this, right? There's only one or two that I mentioned, and perhaps a few others were done. But this also shows any Muslim who had a very special favor upon another. They were actually allowed to, they were allowed to take one or two people that they had a special favor. We just give an example, that he owes his life to them after a loss of animal data. So he was allowed to take that favor back it was the bears decision. He didn't want it. But the process of them gave that to him and to one or two others in the same story. Now, how many people were killed? The books of Sierra and Hades mentioned

01:08:22--> 01:08:24

broad, varying numbers.

01:08:25--> 01:08:31

Urbanus, how, who's the most authoritative says between six to 700.

01:08:32--> 01:09:24

And then he says, but some have exaggerated and said eight tonight. Some have exaggerated the number looks at they have made it much more and there's eight to nine. And this is basically the range he gives. Heidi, one of the Hadith and Muslim Mr. McMahon mentions around 400 right, Allah knows best and whatever it is, it is not a small number there is no question is a large number this is the entire adult tribe of the annual Corolla. So Allah knows 400 600 800 max a 900. Allah knows best and much booty was received. According to one of the sources, 1500 swords and 1500 shields. This is an immense benefit to the Muslim Ummah at the time 1500 sword swords and shields were not easy to have

01:09:24--> 01:09:58

and they go down generation to generation you use them over and over again. 1500 that's the entire people of Medina. They can have swords and shields now 2000 Spears 300, body armor suits 300 and 1000s and 1000s of sheeps and goats and camels like animals that are there, and they also found a large quantity of comet of alcohol. But all of this was destroyed. Nobody got obviously, the distributed alcohol of the alcohol was destroyed. It was at that point in time according to one version, that the rules of aneema were solidified and

01:09:59--> 01:09:59

the

01:10:00--> 01:10:43

One who had a horse was given three shares of the one who was walking, right? One for his horse and double for him, meaning one for the expenses of the horse. Now, in those days, the Muslim army is not composed of paid people, the Muslim army has volunteers. And so you use your own weapons, your own money, your own horse, you have to take care of anybody who has an animal, you take care of it, right. So when the booty is distributed, you your animal gets to share with the booty, not meaning you get the point, the maintenance fees, right, so the owner of animals got three shares, and the one who had no animal one share. So the three shares one for the animal, and two, for a double for

01:10:43--> 01:11:24

the the person, because he's risking more, he's risking the animal, when he comes in, he has more of a responsibility. So he gets three shares in this regard. And one fifth of this entire amount was given to the Islamic State in the process of as per the rules of pseudo and file. And there's a footnote here, which we'll come back to inshallah, towards the end of this year, that amongst those whom the Prophet says and received in this battle was Rihanna was one of the female capitals, Rihanna, and Rihanna. The profitsystem, invited her to Islam. And initially, she refused, and she remained upon her religion. And so eventually, the process and decided to transfer ownership away,

01:11:24--> 01:11:25

because he did not

01:11:27--> 01:11:42

want to keep somebody that was not a Muslim. And so he left her for a long time to decide her fate. And then eventually, when she realized that the process was going to leave her, and she is a slave, she decided to convert to Islam. Right. So this shows us that

01:11:43--> 01:12:17

the way that the process was treating her and the gentleness she would rather remain with him than be given to somebody else, even though it was the Muslims who in fact, did what they did to their own people. But still, in the end, she realized being with the process that would be better for so she converted to Islam, once you converted to Islam, the prophet system did what he did with all of his wives that were of this nature. And he said, I will free you and marry you and your freedom will be the map. Right? Now the books of sila differ quite a lot of books say that she willingly did not want this. And she wanted to remain

01:12:18--> 01:12:53

basically, you know, medically, I mean, she wanted to remain. Bulkeley amin, and she did not want to be become a wife. And she said, this is better for me. And for you why this is the case, there are interpretations. And then one small minority group says that no, she accepted the offer, and she became a wife. So we'll talk about the whys of the process and an entire number of episodes way towards the end, whatever Allah blesses us to get there, and will realize contrary to popular perception, in fact, we have a lot of difference of opinion about how many ways the process of them had, and the common figure that everybody knows is but one opinion. And this is another issue, for

01:12:53--> 01:13:14

example, Rihanna, we really don't know. And there is nothing conclusive and the majority say, and then we'll have those who are well, researchers, they say, Rihanna, she accepted Islam, but she refused to be confused, she'd rather remain. She wanted to remain a slave even though the process and gave her the choice. So in any case, that's another issue. And

01:13:15--> 01:14:01

the final issue that we'll discuss a little bit late delay today, but the final issue that we'll discuss, obviously, and that is, how this incident has been interpreted, it is understood that this is an incident that is politically, something that has been smeared and been used in a very negative manner, we don't need to even mention this, it's pretty obvious that the group that has been killed, obviously, there are those that charge the Profit System in Islam with being a sufferer anti semitic, with, you know, calling for killings of that ethnicity, that religion, etc, etc. And no doubt there is no doubt that the punishment was harsh. And even the processor was willing to

01:14:01--> 01:14:34

compromise if side had agreed, right, that there was a spectrum of opinion, and that there was the possibility of being merciful and there was a possibility of being harsh. But even the most spiteful critic should not and cannot academically say that they were killed because of who they were. Anybody who says this, honestly, they just want to say false, which we can understand. Even though we as Muslims don't agree, we can understand those who say that was excessively harsh, we can understand.

01:14:35--> 01:14:51

But anybody who says they were killed because of who they were, honestly, this is just a flagrant line. And none of the early scholars of Islam, none of the scholars of Sierra ever even hint at this. They weren't killed because of what they did.

01:14:52--> 01:15:00

Not because of who they were, and that, as I said, anybody who says anything other than this, really we have to say that we draw the line so you use being unfair.

01:15:00--> 01:15:05

This is not academically valid. The process did not do this to to the Vanunu elite. He didn't do this.

01:15:06--> 01:15:44

And this is something that if you look at the entire circumstance, look at how many times they were told three times they were told one time was literally right before this incident by a few months, the process of them after the bundle novena had been expelled before he went to the bonanova. Even his house says he wants to the bundle a new car. And he gave them one more opportunity. Right? One more opportunity Do you want to remain upon You're the last one left, right? And they said yes. And the whole story and the circumstance and attempting to attack the women and children. They will like anybody who puts it into perspective. The problem comes anybody who talks about it, the entire Azov

01:15:44--> 01:15:45

is cut off.

01:15:46--> 01:16:23

The entire context is just ignored. And they say, Oh, he killed 700. He did this, he did that. And no context is given. And this is what like the average way that is understood. And this is just not fair. You need to put things into context and perspective when you do that. A non Muslim can say that was excessively harsh. They can say that. We as Muslims say no, it was the Kokomo law. And harshness has its place. By the way, I don't see a problem saying it was harsh personally. So it it has to be it has to be harsh. So nobody's being harsh is not wrong all the time. Sometimes it's good to be harsh, and sometimes it's good to be merciful. I said this many times the religion of Islam is

01:16:23--> 01:16:51

the perfect religion because gentleness is the rule. But once in a while, you really have to show some severity and harshness, I don't see a problem saying that there was an element of harshness that was deserved. The point is, of course, it's deserved, right? Yes, forgiveness could have been done. But you can't always forgive. You need to show there is a line you cannot cross. And frankly, I mean, Subhanallah I mean, many Muslim scholars pointed out Deuteronomy 20,

01:16:52--> 01:17:33

verses 10 to 14, I quote you Deuteronomy, the Old Testament, that when you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open the gates, all the people in it shall be subject to force labor, and shall work for you. That's peace, by the way, right? If they refuse to make peace and engage in battle, lay siege to that city. This is what happened with the bundle Cordova. And when the Lord your God delivers it in your hand, put to the sword, all the men in it, and asked for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take it as plunder for yourselves, and you may use the plunder the Lord your God has given you from

01:17:33--> 01:18:17

your enemies. como la heeta, Allah Fie him. This was their outcome against them, literally word for word, letter for letter. Right? And this is literally write it down Deuteronomy 2010 to 14, Deuteronomy 2010 to 14, it's right there in their books, right. And what the prophet system wanted, even though he didn't do it, that's the whole beauty of it. Right? their own allies, and the ones they themselves wanted. They're the ones who did it. And the process of them, yes, he praised it. He said, this is look more like an event. Right? But he didn't do it. And in the end of the day, yes, he wanted this to be done. But it was the judgment of sadly have been wired that was executed, and

01:18:18--> 01:18:53

sadly been wild. Of course, I already mentioned last week and with this we conclude already mentioned last week, the blessings aside, they've been wild. And I forgot to mention one or two things. I mentioned many of the blessings aside they've been wider than one of the earliest converts and his beautiful speech at Oprah at Bethel excuse me, right? That beautiful speech that should be written with the ink of gold. It's such a beautiful speech, sadly been was the only person as I said that the process of commanded others to stand up for the only person in the sila, whom it is a standard for your leader, that sadly been wild was that person who, when he was about to die, he

01:18:53--> 01:19:30

made a dua to Allah allow me to live till that day and allowed him to live to that day and he died basically a few days after this literally as soon as this was done, he made a promise to Allah and Allah azza wa jal fulfilled that promise, sadly been widely as mentioned that when they carried his janazah, the Sahaba said, We have never carried anyone lighter than him and the process instead, why should it not be light For verily 70,000 angels have come down? They have never come down to this earth except for now and they are carrying sighs grave with you. Why, how could it not be light as if you're carrying air, you're not carrying anything. This is not you caring, sad, even wife. And

01:19:30--> 01:19:59

our Profit System said to sad meaning in the grave when he's about to be buried. jazak Allahu hyaluron. This is the Profit System saying to side they've been wired. I mean, this is sad. They've been wired right? When the Prophet system is saying two sided been wired jazak Allahu hyaluron. men say The Omen that from the leader of the people. You know you are the leader of the People's physical level and you have fulfilled your promise to Allah and Allah will fulfill his promise to you. You have done your job and Allah will fulfill his promise to you

01:20:00--> 01:20:39

When he was placed in the grave, the prophet system was surrounded by all of the Sahaba. But it was full of the Sahaba when He is buried, when he was buried and his face color changed out of sadness and sorrow, and he started saying Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah and the whole Baqir started saying Subhana Allah because when the process was saying it's all of the Muslims are saying, Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, and then he said, Allahu Akbar. And they said, What Yasuda law? Why the change? Why the shift? And the Prophet says of himself, and that beautiful Hadith and it's a very powerful Hadith and it's a very scary Hadith as well, that this righteous servant has led this this

01:20:39--> 01:21:28

man for whom the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala shook this man, meaning, as I said last week, either at the anger of his death, or at the happiness of meeting him. It does our show, right, man, well, footy Ababa sama was sublunary elf seven. So the skies of the heavens have opened up and 70,000 angels have come down to two witnesses Shahada What did the process I'm say, love God bomb, mobile mutton. He has now been squeezed in the grave, and then set free. And if anyone were to have been freed from the squeezing of the grave, it would have been sad, even more hot. And that's why he was saying so powerless rather than a lot of luck, but he's now been opened up. And this shows us

01:21:28--> 01:22:07

that may Allah azza wa jal protect all of us, every one of us will face this that as soon as the body is placed, there is Obama, there is a squeeze. It's just a squeeze for the believer and then let go. Right. And this is what our Prophet system said that, sadly been wired has just been squeezed his squeezing, and if anyone had been saved from even this, it would have been sad. It'd been wired. And this is sad. They've been wired that the processor remembered him for so long. We even said when the gift was given to him the first name that came to mind, the sad had been wired handkerchief is better than all that I am wearing. This is sad. They've been wired, a bit

01:22:07--> 01:22:49

disheartened, even sad and others they say sadly been wired was a tall, broad man fair skinned and color handsome with a full beard, and he died a tragic death a young death because of this, and he died at the age of 37. He died at the age of 37. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala, makers of those who follow the footsteps of sad even wild and be resurrected with the nabin and differentia. Inside he will have sooner hula rafiqul and with this shuttle The time is really late inshallah we'll speak afterwards I need to give some announcements as well. With this inshallah we're finishing or not finishing but causing our Sierra season finale.

01:22:50--> 01:22:51

Season finale.

01:22:52--> 01:22:55

We are pausing our Syrah next week.
