(Surah Talaaq, verse 3)

Events of Shawwaal The Battle of Khandaq (Ahzaab - Confederates)

The Battle of the Trench, also known as the Battle of the Confederates, took place 5 years after migration to Madina.

The reason for this battle was to defend Medina from attack, after the Banu Nazir and Banu Qaynuqa tribes formed an alliance with the Quraysh to attack the Muslims as revenge for expelling them from Medina during the Invasion of Banu Qaynuqa and Invasion of Banu Nadir.

The outnumbered Muslim army dug a trench on the suggestion of Salman al-Farsi which, together with Medina's natural fortifications, rendered the confederate cavalry useless. Hoping to make several attacks at once, the confederates persuaded the Muslim-allied Medinan Jews, Banu Qurayza, to attack the city from the south. However, Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam’s diplomacy derailed the negotiations, and broke up the confederacy against him. The well-organised Muslim army, the sinking of confederate morale, and poor weather conditions caused the siege to end in a fiasco.

The siege was a "battle of wits", as in the battles of Badr and Uhud, the Muslim army again used strategic methods against their opponents (at Badr, the Muslims surrounded the wells, but did not deprive their opponents of water since Ali did not want to follow the footsteps of the Meccan army; at the Battle of Uhud, Muslims made strategic use of the hills). In this battle they dug a trench to render the enemy cavalry ineffective.

In this battle the Muslims tactically overcame their opponents while suffering very few casualties. Efforts to defeat the Muslims failed, and Islam became influential in the region. As a consequence, the Muslim army besieged the area of the Banu Qurayza tribe, leading to their surrender and enslavement or execution. The defeat caused the Meccans to lose their trade and much of their prestige.

Humorous Anecdotes

The whole of Prophethood in one home

A person was blessed with a baby boy and named him Ahmed Mujtaba (a name of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam). Then, Allah Ta’aala gave him another baby boy and he named the child Muhammad Mujtaba (another name of Nabi Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Sallam). When Allah blessed him with a third child, someone suggested the name Ali Murtadaa be given, due to the rhyming effect between the three names.

Someone else suggested something in jest. They felt the name should be "Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam" and their motivation was that in doing so, Prophethood in the full sense would be in one home. In other words, because the father did not think of the consequences of having "Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam" suffixed to the first two names, it should be compensated for by naming the third child "Sallallhu Alayhi Wa Sallam".

Reference: Lataaif Mahmood 28


Parents should carefully consider the consequences of an uncommon name. More so when we are encouraged to keep the names of Ambiya, Sahaabah and pious pre-decessors.

Praised Muslim Woman - Fortunate Woman Who Nabi Salllallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam Praised

Khadijah bint Khuwailid Radiyallahu Anhaa - Part three

Jibrail Alayhis Salaam once came to Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam and said, “O Rasulullah, Khadijah is approaching. She has with her a utensil containing gravy, food or drink. When she comes to you, convey to her salaams from her Rabb and from me and give her the glad tidings of a brocaded palace in Jannah in which there will be neither arguments nor burdens.”

Scholars state that her reward of a palace in Jannah is an appropriate reward for the role she played in the life of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam. According to al-Suhaili Rahimahullah her home was the first on the face of the earth to house the message of Islam. She alone enjoys this virtue over all other people.

Further, the description of the palace as one free of “arguments and burdens” appropriately corresponds with her conduct in relation to Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam: when he called to Islam, Khadijah Radiyallahu Anhaa accepted it willingly. She did not constrain him to raise his voice or to engage in debate. On the contrary, she removed from him all burdens, she comforted him from all that was harmful and she made easy for him all that was difficult. So the home that
she was given in Jannah by Allah Azza Wa Jalla possessed the same qualities.

Many a true word is spoken in jest
It is in giving that we receive
A man desperately begged Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz for the fulfilment of a need.

A by-standing courtier addressed the man, “STOP, you are offending the Ameer!”

Umar ibn Abdul Aziz said to the courtier, “Indeed, YOU have offended me more than him!”

Reference: Al-Ajwibah Al-Muskitah Page10


When a person lives his life with a view to constantly be in the service of others, like Umar Ibn ABdul Azis, then he finds no excuse to be deprived of an opportunity to be of assistance.
