Bismillah...


1453 C.E. when Constantinople was conquered was also a turning point in history

We've discussed the Battle of Badr (a turning point in history)
-had we not won, Islam would not have survived in its pure form
-the Conquest of Makkah was on the 20th of Ramadan
-the idols were cleaned from the Ka’ba
-the Battle of Hittin - where Salahuddin kicked the Christians out of Palestine
-so today, we will discuss the Battle of Ain Jaloot

1260 C.E. - the Battle of Ain Jaloot
-every battle has a springboard that launches the battle
-the Battle of Badr, the Rasool sent for Abu Sufyan’s caravan to be captured
-the Conquest of Makkah - the Treaty of Hudaibiyya was broken
-the Battle of Hittin - the Christians were robbing the Muslims and killing them

WHAT IS THE SPRING-BOARD WHICH LAUNCHED THIS BATTLE?

Hulagu Khan wanted to expand his empire through the Middle East
-when they were alone, they were called the MONGOLS
-but when other races joined them their name was changed to TARTARS
-he had 150,000 to march against Baghdad
-our army was scaled down to 10,000
-the Tartars capital was in Karakorum
-this city was a site for world leaders to visit and pay tribute to Khan

The Muslim caliph, Abu Ahmad Al-Mus’tasim Billah
-refused to go to pay tribute to Khan (a pagan) in his capital
-Hulagu liked for his ego to be massaged and Mus’tasim refused to massage it
-so he kept his eyes set to capture Baghdad

The Abbasid caliph, Mus’tasim (from Abbas's lineage)
-these caliphs were his great-grandsons
-they were direct descendants of the Prophet's Uncle, Abbas

Mus’tasim suffered a relapse in his deen
-the same as Muslims today
-he surrounded himself with music and singing girls
-previous caliphs surrounded themselves with great scholars
-Umar surrounded himself with scholars, so when he implemented Shari’ah,
-he had scholars to remind him
-when he conquered Persia, he didn't know what to do with the Zoroastrians
-he was told to charge them jizya (he took the advice of the scholars on deen)
-Umar was going to stone a woman to death who committed adultery but was stopped

Ali reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, "The pen has been raised for three persons (meaning they are not held accountable for what they do): one who is sleeping until he gets up, a child until he reaches the age of puberty, and an insane person until he becomes sane." [Musnad Ahmad (1/154) No. 1327, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/140) No. 4402, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/32) No. 1423, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/198) No. 2041, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (5/265) No. 5596, Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/67) No. 2350]

Musta'sim's huge mistake was having a 12-er for his advisor
-Ibn al Alqami was his advisor who made takfeer on Sahabah
-while he was advising Musta'sim, he was advising as a spy for the Tartars
-he even told the Tartars when the best time to attack the Muslims is

Ibn al Alqami told the caliph to scale back the army;
-he used to advise the caliph on military affairs
-how can 10,000 of us stand up to 150,000 pagans?
-Abdullah ibn Saba, a Jew, started the Shiites
-they are the greatest enemy of Islam
-Alqami was the new ibn Saba

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/189-abdallah-ibn-saba

Alqami told the caliph 'don't worry about the Tartars', but they were very brutal
-they are barbarians and would kill the women and children
-his advice was that the women and children would throw stones
-and chase the Tartars away
-Shiites don't like Aisha, Abu Bakr, Umar - so what makes you think they like you?
-a weakness of the Abbasid dynasty was their closeness to the Shiites

Alqami's letter said: "You'll find me supportive and helpful if you
-promise to destroy the Islamic calipha"

O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitānah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religionO you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitānah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand. (Aali Imran 3:118)

-even Mu’awiya (a king, our 1st in Islam) surrounded himself
-with wise scholars to help him not make a mistake

O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allah, He will grant you Furqān a criterion [(to judge between right and wrong), or (Makhraj, i.e. making a way for you to get out from every difficulty)], and will expiate for you your sins, and forgive you, and Allah is the Owner of the Great Bounty. (Al-Anfal 8:29)

If we want to have firaasa and furqan (to judge truth from falsehood), we need taqwa
-firaasa - is foresight to know when someone is a con-artist (example)
-furqan - criteria to judge right from wrong and truth from falsehood

Musta'sim suffered a relapse in his deen
-the books of tafseer, grammar, seerah, balaga, mantic (logic), philosophy,
-astronomy, math, medicine, anatomy - were destroyed when Baghdad was invaded
-they were dumped into the rivers
-Baghdad, at that time, was a seat of learning with Makkah, Madina, Egypt, and Syria

When the TARTARS invaded Baghdad, the river Tigris became black
-from the ink of these many books
-thousands of Islamic scholars were killed, along with women and children
-this killing spree was for 40 days and they also killed 1 million Muslims in Baghdad
-all because of the treachery of ibn al Alqami who helped the Tartars by being a spy for them

The TARTARS did not kill Christians and Jews, only Muslims
-they were pagans
-all the historic buildings and mosques and hospitals were raised to the ground
-the remaining mosques were turned into stables for their horses
-they captured the caliph, Musta'sim with his 3 sons
-they were wrapped in Persian rugs and trampled them with horses till they died
-but they spared 1 son, so they would not wipe out the entire bloodline
-thinking it would be bad luck if they killed him, they used horses to trample on the caliph

Hulagu turned to ibn al Alqami and said 'what are we going to do to you
-now that you helped us?'
-they hung him upside down and killed him because NO ONE LIKES A TRAITOR

THE CONTRAST BETWEEN HULAGO AND THE RASOOL (saws)
-when Muhammad conquered Makkah, he SET THEM ALL FREE
-he didn't allow his Sahabah to loot the shops and rape the women
-but kaafirs do this - they think with their bellies and private parts
-Hulagu in contrast, dumped all the books into the Tigris River

He said: "No reproach on you this day, may Allah forgive you, and He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy! (Yusuf 12:92)

"O Quraish, what do you think I will do to you?" They said, “You are a brother, the son of a noble brother.” He said: "Go your way, for you are free.” [al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (9/199) No. 18276, Fath ul-Bari Ibn Hajar (8/18) No. 4289, Seerah Ibn Hisham (2/412), al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah Ibn Kathir (3/570)]

Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud. (Al-Ma'idah 5:82)

Jews and idol-worshipers will hate us the most
-the Buddhist say their religion is peaceful; they don't even kill a fly
-but they are killing the Rohingha Muslims

ROHINGHA MUSLIMS :: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-18949781

SHE TURNS A BLIND EYE TO THE BURMESE MUSLIMS: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2012/jun/16/aung-san-suu-kyi-nobel

DEMOCRACY
-the evilest people follow democracy
-it means the DEMONS HAVE GONE CRAZY
-it is the greatest shirk and the religion of the Satan

THE NEWS OF THE FALL OF BAGHDAD sent shock-waves throughout the Muslim world
-this dynasty lasted for 500 years
-then they set their eyes on EGYPT
-if you want to finish off Muslims and Islam, you need to conquer Egypt
-so Hulagu had unfinished business
-he wanted to fulfill his grandfather's vision - to have one empire ruled by the TARTARS
-their strategy is known as SHOCK and AWE

Many cities fell, therefore, without a fight (they surrendered)
-because they saw what was done in Baghdad
-their reputation for being cruel scared the other cities
-1 million Muslims were killed within 40 days

EGYPT remained the last Islamic strong-hold to be conquered
-in 1260 C.E. Hulago sent a letter to Mahmoud Saifu-d-Deen Qutuz
-demanding his unconditional surrender
-this letter was not wrapped in parchment,
-such as was sent by one official to another official
-the letter was SNOTTY, CHEEKY, INSOLENT

THE LETTER SAID :

From the King of Kings of the East and West, the Great Khan. To Qutuz the Mamluk, who fled to escape our swords. You should think of what happened to other countries and submit to us. You have heard how we have conquered a vast empire and have purified the earth of the disorders that tainted it. We have conquered vast areas, massacring all the people. You cannot escape from the terror of our armies. Where can you flee? What road will you use to escape us? Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations. Only those who beg our protection will be safe. Hasten your reply before the fire of war is kindled. Resist and you will suffer the most terrible catastrophes. We will shatter your mosques and reveal the weakness of your God and then will kill your children and your old men together. At present you are the only enemy against whom we have to march.

a) he called himself the 'king of kings' - this is shirk so his reign had to fall
-this is the same as Bashar Assad is doing now,
-forcing people to take their Shahada TO BASHAR ASSAD
-this is on YouTube as a video
-he will fall too because he is competing w/ Allah 'tala for the 4 tawheed

Syrian soldiers force man to say "No god but Bashar Al Assad": 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT0Fzx8LiGQ


WHAT WAS THE RESPONSE OF THE MUSLIM SULTAN?

Qutuz responded, however, by killing the envoys
-displaying their heads on Bab Zuweila, one of the gates of Cairo
-his response was SWIFT, SEVERE and DECISIVE
-he cut off the heads of the 4 envoys
-and hung them on the posts outside the city
-it was the custom not to kill envoys
-but their letter was so snotty, there was no choice but to chop off the envoy’s heads
-then rallied the Muslims for Jihad

Mahmoud Saifu-d-Deen Qutuz didn't remain in Egypt to defend Egypt
-he took the battle TO the kuffaar
-the Christians in Palestine were approached to take sides
-w/ the Tartars against the Muslims
-but Pope Alexander IV - forbade any Christians to help the Tartars
-if any helped, they would be excommunicated from the church
-so the Christians decided to help the Muslims by granting them SAFE PASSAGE
-when they went to the battlefield

The CHRISTIANS were nervous about having 20,000 well trained Muslims in their presence
-so why did Hulago allow raping the woman and killing them?
-because RAPE insults the men and it is a weapon of war
-generals allow soldiers to rape women also because:
a) They get a salary for their work and
b) Raping the women is a BONUS
-rapists are all thieves because the woman didn't submit her body to him

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Campaign_of_the_Battle_of_Ain_Jalut_1260.svg

NO MUSLIM SOLDIER LOOTED SHOPS OR RAPED WOMEN
-they had taqwa
-and if you commit sins, the angels won't come to help you

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
-Ronald Reagan referred to the USSR as an 'evil empire'
-he was a fundamentalist Christian

CIA SUPPLIED STINGERS TO MUJAHIDEEN: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Du5CpAPxrsw

RONALD REAGAN MEETING SOME MUJAHIDEEN: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3f9mlUQzJA

-so he sent stinger missiles to the mujahideen in Afghanistan
-to shoot down Soviet helicopters
-he also sent CIA officers to show the mujahideen how to use the missiles
-they dressed in the traditional Afghan garb
-the war was turned around at that point
-because the mujahideen were struggling against the might of the Soviet Union
-whatReagan did can be found in 65:2-3

And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). (At-Talaq 65:2)

And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine.Talaq 65:3)

Mahmoud Saifu-d-Deen Qutuz chose Ain Jaloot as the place for the battle
-15 miles outside the city
-it was an oasis with a lot of trees, so it was perfect for an ambush
-the Egyptians knew the terrain, too

TO WIN A BATTLE YOU NEED:
1 WEAPONRY
2 BRAVERY
3 STRATEGY

-each army had 20,000 so they were both even
-Mahmoud hid the bulk of his army behind the trees
-when the Tartars saw the small batch of Muslims, they assumed this was an easy battle
-but this was a TRICK to give the Tartars a false sense of security

Narrated Ka'b ibn Malik: When the Prophet (SAW) intended to go on an expedition, he always pretended to be going somewhere else, and he would say: "War is deception". [Abu Dawud 2629, Tirmidhi 1681, Ahmed 14312]

The Muslims were about to lose the war, after a few hours
-Mahmoud took off his helmet so his men would recognize him
-he yelled 'wa Islamaa, wa Islamaa'
-he knew if they did not win, they would not have Islam survive

THE LEADER OF THE TARTARS WAS KILLED
-his name was Kitbuqa
-so why was it important to kill the leader?
-because as soon as he was killed, their morale went down

But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and attack your religion with disapproval and criticism then fight (you) the leaders of disbelief (chiefs of Quraish - pagans of Makkah) - for surely their oaths are nothing to them - so that they may stop (evil actions). (At-Tawbah 9:12)

This battle is called HISTORY'S TURNING POINT... WHY?
-IT IS THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY THAT THE TARTARS WERE DEFEATED
-they thought they were invincible
-they thought it was inevitable that they would always win battles
-they had indefatigability and thought this would last forever

The TARTARS TOOK SHAHADAH and became the caliphs
-they abandoned their kufr and shirk
-but Ibn Taymiyya wasn't happy with their governments of al yaasiq
-their Bible was a cocktail of other religions
-so takfeer was made on them by Ibn Kathir and Ibn Taymiyya

Ibn Kathir (rh) said: “So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammad ibn Abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated Shariah for judgment, he becomes a Kaafir. So how about the one who goes to al-Yaasiq (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW). Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims.” [Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah, (Vol. 13, p119)]

Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: “And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it.” [Majmua al-Fataawa (28/524)]


33 LESSONS FROM THE BATTLE OF AIN JALOOT
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
08.16.2012 (Night Dars)

NOTES typed by AT-21
Edited and Formatted by AT21/AT7

Bismillah...


Telling you these lessons is like the icing on a cake

THESE ARE THE 33 LESSONS FROM THE BATTLE OF AIN JALOOT

1. WORLD DOMINATION IS THE GOAL OF MANKIND

-this is because of their personality disorders [inferiority, superiority or god-like complex]
-it is not haram for a Muslim to have a superiority complex
-we deserve to feel superior to a kaafir

Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould), (At-Tin 95:4)

Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low, (At-Tin 95:5)

Save those who believe (in Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, then they shall have a reward without end (Paradise). (At-Tin 95:6)

-this ayah says the kuffaar are beneath the level of the cattle
-another ayah says our superiority complex is NOT misplaced

You [true believers in Islāmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism and all that Islām has ordained)Aali Imran 3:110

He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islāmic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammad SAW) hate (it). (As-Saff 61:9)

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur’an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (Al-Hijr 15:9)

~IF YOU ARE PROUD TO BE A MUSLIM, YOU'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG~
-we're allowed to be proud but NOT arrogant

MANKIND becomes intoxicated with power, sex and money
-so it’s not just Genghis Khan, or Hitler or Napoleon or Stalin who wanted world domination
-this is the goal of all man because of their god-like complex


2. PEOPLE LIKE TO IDENTIFY WITH THE AGGRESSOR AND POWER

MONGOLIAN EMPIRE : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongol_Empire

The Mongols changed their name to TARTARS after other nations joined their ranks
-they joined the MONGOLS because they thought 'might is right'
-because until this point, the MONGOLS never lost a battle
-the Americans did the same thing by forming a coalition to invade Iraq
-claiming they were looking for weapons of mass destruction
-these other countries joined the American coalition,
-knowing they could destroy the country then afterward,
-they would get a contract to rebuild Iraq
-Germany, France, Belgium, and Canada - these will get NEW contracts to rebuild Iraq
-people like to join the aggressor; this is called the STOCKHOLM SYNDROME
-people like to wear tee-shirts that say MANCHESTER UNITED
-but there are other teams, such as EVERTON OR FULHAM

~NO ONE WANTS TO BACK A LOSER~

If Obama is leading Mitt Romney in the polls [right now, he is]
-he will be able to raise more money
-this is why others joined the MONGOLS because till then, they were successful at battles
-those who donate to these presidential campaigns will afterward
-be given million-dollar contracts
-the DONATION was in reality, an INVESTMENT


3. A LEADER CANNOT AFFORD TO SUFFER A RELAPSE IN HIS DEEN

Musta'sim suffered a relapse, by surrounding himself with singing girls and Shiite advisors
-as a leader, you must look after your flock

SHAIKH IN TURKEY
-he asked if the shaikhs there drink alcohol
-because he knew how unwise it would be if they drank alcohol
-and in Jamaica, if you're a shaikh and your name is linked to girls,
-no one would pray behind you


4. WHEN YOU'RE A LEADER, YOU MUST SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THE ULAMA

Umar was even corrected by Ali when he made mistakes

Mu’awiya, our first king surrounded himself with scholars
-but Musta'sim didn't surround himself with the ulama


5. WE CANNOT TAKE BITAANA FROM PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF OUR RELIGION

O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitānah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely.Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand. (Aali Imran 3:118)

-your bitaana knows if you have a medical condition
-and other things about you so you can ask them for naseeha
-they are like a 'bosom-friend'
-but Musta'sim didn't follow this command and he paid for this
-w/ his life and the life of his 2 sons


6. THE 12-ER (SHIITES) WILL ALWAYS STAB THE MUSLIMS IN THE BACK

If they don't like Abu Bakr and Umar, or Aisha, how can they like us?

Uqbah ibn Aamir (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If there were to be a Prophet after me then he would be Umar ibn Al-Khattab.” [Musnad Ahmad (4/154) No. 17441, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/619) No. 3686, Mustadrak al-Haakim (3/92) No. 4495]

Hadhrat Umar (radhiallahu anhu) had ordered a pregnant adulteress to be stoned to death. However, Hadhrat Ali (radhiallahu anhu) apprized him of his error. Hadhrat Umar (radhiallahu anhu) commented: “If it was not for Ali, Umar would have been destroyed.”

The Shia believe that at the time of Mahdi’s return Imam Mahdi will resurrect Aisha (Prophet Mohammad’s wife) and execute the law of Hudud on her, for committing Zina (adultery) during her marriage. (Al-Anwar Al-Numaniyah, vol. 1, p. 161, Tafsir al-Shafi, vol. 2, p. 108, Haq al-Yaqeen, vol. 2, p. 256, Hayat al-Qulub, vol. 2, p. 611)

In a narration attributed to Imam Abi Abdullah, he says: "Do you know what he (Shia Imam Mahdi) will start with? I said: "No." He said: "He will dig out the two (meaning Abu Bakr and Umar) as wet and fresh. Then, he will burn them and scatter their remains in the wind. And he will break-up (demolish) the Mosque ( meaning the Haram Mosque of Mecca ). (al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 52, p. 387)


7. IF YOU HAVE TAQWAH, ALLAH GIVES YOU FURQAN AND FIRAASA

Musta'sim lost his furqan because he didn't surround himself with righteous people


8. HE WHO FAILS TO PREPARE MUST BE PREPARED TO FAIL

Musta'sim wasn't preparing for battle
-so Baghdad fell and he and his sons were killed
-this lesson is a law of nature


9. PRECIOUS ISLAMIC MANUSCRIPTS AND BOOKS ARE NOT IMPORTANT TO THE PAGANS

They ransacked the library @ Baghdad and dumped these books into the Tigris River
-this river became black from all the ink that was dumped in it

Imam al-Bukhari records a Hadith mentioning the events of the miraculous Night Journey of the Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). In this report, Jibrael (peace be upon him) informs the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that the Nile and the Euphrates are worldly rivers found in heaven. [Hadith no. 2968]

-they don't have reverence for OUR books
-because they worship idols, not Allah 'tala


10. PAGAN HATRED TOWARDS MUSLIMS HAS NO LIMITS

Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud. (Al-Ma'idah 5:82)


11. THE HEARTS OF THE KAAFIRS ARE ALIKE

So they routed them by Allah’s Leave and Dawud (David) killed Jalut (Goliath), and Allah gave him [Dawud (David)] the kingdom [after the death of Talut (Saul) and Samuel] and Al Hikmah (Prophethood), and taught him of that which He willed. And if Allah did not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief. But Allah is full of Bounty to the 'Alamīn (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Baqarah 2:251)

To exist, we must resist is what 2:251 is saying
-as soon as we go against the laws of nature, we will suffer
-the Tartars destroyed the mosques of the ummah and turned them into horse stables

It is not for the Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah), to maintain the Mosques of Allah (i.e. to pray and worship Allah therein, to look after their cleanliness and their building, etc.), while they witness against their ownselves of disbelief. The works of such are in vain and in Fire shall they abide. (At-Tawbah 9:17)

-when the kuffaar see a minaret, they get upset because it reminds them of Islam
-and it is one of the signs of Islam
-on Judgment Day, they will not be able to say THEY DID NOT HEAR ABOUT ISLAM
-this is why the kuffaar in Switzerland banned it

Those who have been expelled from their homes unjustly only because they said: "Our Lord is Allah." - For had it not been that Allah checks one set of people by means of another, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein the Name of Allah is mentioned much would surely have been pulled down.Verily, Allah will help those who help His (Cause). Truly, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty. (Al-Hajj 22:40)

-why would a pagan look after Allah's house?
-see 9:17 above
-we're using the Qur'an to explain why the TARTARS were so barbaric


12. THE KUFFAAR ALWAYS HAVE THEIR EYES ON THE ISLAMIC STATE TO DESTROY IT

It is a 'bone in their throat'
-remember when Abu Sufyan told the pagans to go back
-and not come fight Muhammad's army?
-but Abu Jahl said "I can't go back, I must destroy them"
-likewise, the TARTARS had their eyes on the seat of the Islamic Empire (Baghdad)
-today, they say 'it's a fertile ground to be a safe haven for terrorists'
-this is their excuse for killing our ummah today


13. RAPE IS A WEAPON OF WAR USED BY THE KUFFAAR

Genghis Khan did it and the Americans did it in Iraq
-Palestinian women are raped by the Jews in their jails


14. ‘TERROR’ IS A WEAPON OF WAR

-we're to STRIKE TERROR in the hearts of the kuffaar

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (8:60)


15. THE IMPORTANCE OF EGYPT IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD

ISLAMIC SURVIVED 3 DAYS:
1. At The Battle Of Badr
2. When Abu Bakr Fought Those Who Didn't Pay Their Zakat
3. When We Fought The Mu'tazilites

**the lineage of the Rasool is from Hagar (Egypt)**

SYRIA, IRAN, BAGHDAD were conquered and now,
-Egypt was the last strong-hold to be conquered
-Mahmoud said 'wa Islamaa' because he wanted to rally the troops
-he knew that, if Egypt falls, Islam would be finished
-the 1st Islamic University is al-Azhar in Egypt
-when they see you have a degree from there, you're given a job right away

Al Azhar University: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Azhar_University


16. THE IMPORTANCE OF DECISIVE LEADERSHIP

When the 4 envoys brought the letter to Mahmoud,
-his reaction was swift, decisive and severe
-leadership is a heavy responsibility

And by the Mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allah’s) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). (Aali Imran 3:159)


17. ARROGANCE AND VAIN-GLORY ARE THE DOWNFALL OF MANKIND

The custom says we're not permitted to kill envoys
-but the letter sent to Mahmoud was SO insulting,
-there was no choice but to chop off their heads
-remember, in the letter, they INSULTED ALLAH, and this is NEVER allowed


18. MUSLIM / CHRISTIAN UNITY IS INEVITABLE

Christians have helped the Muslims several times in our history
-against our common enemies
-we unite against COMMON enemies
-we can't escape this unity
-Christian nations are helping the Sunnis in Syria against Bashar Assad [the taghoot]

We have many things in common:
1. -we worship the same God
2. -they say Allah but they went astray in regard to the 4 tawheed
3. -they say Jesus is another 'god' besides Allah

-the Egyptians displayed only a few soldiers in front of the trees
-so the Tartars thought they were only going to fight a small army
-this is called strategy of war

Narrated Ka'b ibn Malik: When the Prophet (SAW) intended to go on an expedition, he always pretended to be going somewhere else, and he would say: "War is deception". [Abu Dawud 2629, Tirmidhi 1681, Ahmed 14312]

23. THE IMPORTANCE OF KILLING THE LEADERS OF KUFR

In this battle, they killed Kitbuqa (the leader of the tartars)
-and then his army was like 'headless chickens'

And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60)


25. RAMADAN IS A MONTH OF GLORY

30. SLAVES CAN BE LIBERATED AND ELEVATED IN ISLAM

Mamluks were slaves


31. WHEN YOU RELAPSE ON YOUR AL WALAA WAL BARAA, YOU WILL SUFFER


32. IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO HAVE GHAIRA FOR OUR DEEN

Look at how Mahmoud reacted to the leader or how he cried on the battlefield, 'wa Islamaa'
-ghaira means we guard our deen FIERCELY,
-as a man would guard his wife from another man


33. EVERY SINGLE EMPIRE WILL FALL

And every nation has its appointed term; when their term is reached, neither can they delay it nor can they advance it an hour (or a moment). (Al-A'raf 7:34)

-"Ajal" - every empire will fall / crumble / die
-even Bashar Assad will fall .. it is inevitable
