Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now moves to the final part in the series related to the famous Battle of Tabuk.
We begin with the six things that the Prophet ﷺ instructed to be counted before the Day of Judgement. Among them, a few are:
- The death of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ.
- The conquest of Baitul Maqdas .
- Two plagues that would eliminate .
- A fitnah that no house of the Arabs (Muslims) will be unaffected by it.
- A truce between Muslims and Romans.”
A prominent incident that transpired in the duration of Tabuk 20 nights was related to Abdur Rahman ibn Awf RA what was this coveted privilege and honour? He was only among the two behind whom the Prophet ﷺ prayed in his lifetime.
Also, in this time,Abdullah dhul be Jardain died and the Prophet ﷺ showed his ultimate care and affection for his people by giving him a befitting burial.
On the way back from Tabuk, a number of events unfolded. The Prophet ﷺ passed by Al Hijr, the place of Thamud and the people of Saleh. The Sahabas were perplexed and enquired him about the same. What did the Prophet ﷺ answer? What was the wisdom behind this? Shaykh Yasir answers.
Another appalling incident that happened was the assassination attempt made on the Prophet ﷺ by the Munafiqun. When the Prophet ﷺ was atop a cliff on a dangerous location along with Ammar ibn Yasir and Hudhayfa, some bandits attempted to take charge of the camel of the Prophet ﷺ. They were going to throw the Prophet ﷺ from the cliff and obviously they failed badly due to Allah’s help.
The Prophet ﷺ finally returned back to Madinah after almost 50 to 60 days and he was welcomed rejoicing by the people of Thaniyatul Wada’a.
