20 – Muhammad [SAW] : Battle Of Hunain And Ta’if

But now there was another tribe which held prominence in the land of hejaz and at-ta’if, the tribe of thaqif lived there and the tribe of thaqif are a branch of hawazin, they used to see themselves as prominent and important just like quraysh, they felt that since rasullullah saw has now opened Makkah, we’re going to be next cause al-ta’if was very close, Now hawazin manipulated thaqif to stand with them and also manipulated other tribes to stand with them to fight the prophet Muhammad saw, and they were led by a man, his name is malik bin awf, so they could demolish the prophet Muhammad saw’s army and what did malik bin awf also do? He encouraged every single soldier and follower that was coming out with him to war to take out with them their families, their wives, their children, their parents, their brothers, their sisters, cattle’s, your wealth, whatever you have from valuables, drag it with you in to the war and the reason they did that so people do not retreat from the battlefield, He was able to pull together a very strong coalition, rasullullah saw heard the news and he marched out of Makkah in an army of twelve thousand, the army was large and abu bakr siddiq and probably some others said: we’re not going to be defeated today due to lack of numbers, and you will see the consequences of this belief, Now malik bin awf, what he did, he managed to reach to the place where the war is taking place, which is called awtas, he managed to reach there before the prophet muhammad saw, and what he did he prepared his army and he divided them and he sent them to stand around the mountains into the caves behind the walls, behind the big rocks so when the companions walk through the valley, they ambush them.

19 – Muhammad [SAW] : Conquest Of Makkah

During the hudaybiyyah treaty any tribe that’s an ally with muhammad an attack on that tribe is an attack on muhammad and any tribe that’s an ally with quraysh and attack on that tribe is an attack on quraysh, so after the hudaybiyyah treaty khuza’a became an ally with the prophet muhammad saw, the tribe banu bikr became allies with quraysh, During the time of jahiliyyah a man from banu al-hadrami who was an ally of banu bakr, he was travelling in hejaz and when he was deep in the land of khuza’a, khuza’a and killed him and stole his money, so the people of banu bakr they took revenge by killing a member of khuza’a, khuza’a then targeted three from the family of banu al-aswad al-du’ali and banu al-aswad belong to the tribe of banu bakr, they consider themselves to be above everyone else and they consider themselves to be the noblest, khuza’a killed three of them and then islam came, now banu bakr they want to seek revenge for the three of them that were killed, I mean we’re not talking about any three, we’re talking about some noble men among them, During the night while khuza’a were doing their own activities, they came and launched an attack on them and killed whoever they could have killed from them and the tribe of khuza’a run to the haram and in the haram, you’re not supposed to be killing anyone, so nawfal who is the head of banu bakr, people start to tell him: should we kill them? Isn’t it against our religion? Isn’t it against our lord? So he said: today there’s no lord, there’s no religion, just continue killed

18 – Muhammad [SAW] : Battle Of Mu’tah [Roman Empire]

[SAW] sent one of the companions by the name of al-harith ibn umair to the leader of busra, who was under the leadership of the roman emperor, when he was travelling back from busra, there’s a man by the name of shurahbil ibn amr, what shurahbil did, he captured the messenger, he tortured him, he crucified him and he killed him and killing a messenger back then, it’s like declaring war so the prophet saw wanted to teach that man shurahbil and his tribe a good lesson but shurahbil who was he under, he’s under the roman emperor,

Rasullullah saw appointed an army of three thousand strong to attack the lands of the romans in as-sham, and this was to be the first encounter between the muslims and the romans and also the first encounter between muslims and Christians, those three thousand men were led by zayd ibn al-haritha ra and the prophet saw said: if zayd ibn haritha is killed, then it’s ja’far ibn abi talib and then the prophet saw said: and if ja’far is killed then it’s Abdullah ibn rawahah, the army reached to as-sham to Jordon and they received intelligence that the romans have heard of their marching and they have mobilised an army that they are facing an army of two hundred thousand strong, one hundred thousand roman soldiers in addition to one hundred one hundred thousand Christian Arabs

17 – Muhammad [SAW] : Expedition Of Al Khaibar

Twenty days after the arrival of rasullullah saw to madinah from al-hudaybiyyah, he set out to al-khaibar, and they are the people of the book, they are those that allah swt says in the quran al-karim that they know muhammad the way they know more than their own children but they always used to play with it, so rasullullah saw saw as this appropriate moment to once and for all stop the yahood from their conspiracies against the muslims and this was khaibar, in fact it was the strongest area of al-yahood in the Arabian peninsula, khaibar was very well established city and khaibar had a large castle, two main castles, within each castles there was forts and little castle that they used to barricade with themselves and protect themselves from any enemy that used to come out from outside, so the prophet muhammad saw came out with one thousand and four hundred companions to go and conquer and fight against the people of khaibar, the muslims reached to khaibar, they set out in the morning to go out of their fortresses in to their farms so they came out with their equipment; farming equipment ready for work and they suddenly see the army in the horizon, they run back in to their fortresses saying muhammad and the army, muhammad and the army, muhammad and the army, this was their words while they’re fleeing and running away from muhammad saw,

16 – Muhammad [SAW] : Treaty Of Al Hudaybiyyah

On the sixth year of hijra, the prophet muhammad SAW saw in the dreams that he marched out from Madinah and he went towards masjid al-haram took the keys of the Khabah and as performed umrah made tawaf around the Khabah, that him and the sahabah after they made tawaf they cut and they shaved their hair, now it has been six years he has left Makkah and they dearly missed al-Khabah, so they were longing to go back to Makkah and visit al-Khabah, rasullullah SAW has invited the muslims of Madinah and the surrounding areas came out with him for umrah and the ones who responded to his call numbered around fourteen hundred and they set out on the path towards Makkah, so the prophet SAW arrived to dhul hulayfiyyah and that’s where the SAW put on his ihram and SAW commanded the companions to put on the ihram and there the prophet SAW will receive the news that the people of quraysh are preparing to stop the prophet muhammad SAW from arriving to Makkah, rasullullah SAW intended no fighting and therefore he did not take with him any arms except for the swords in their sheaths and a Arab man will never travel without his sword but this was not an army set out to fight, this was an army going out for the ibaadah ritual of umrah,
