Imagine you're pregnant, but have a mutation that makes your pregnancies advance at 8x the normal rate. Rather than wait an entire 40 weeks, you are full term and ready to deliver after just five. Your belly expands rapidly, daily, and while your womb might be able to take the rapid changes, the rest of your body might not have caught up, which promises a difficult labor when the time comes.

Episode 97. Seerah - The Wells of Badr


Listen to the full Episode 97 by Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda.

— It is the 2nd year of Hijra in the middle of the month of Ramadan, in the city of Madinah

  • A couple of months before Ramadan was the Campaign of Dhul Ushayra, in which Abu Sufyan had a huge caravan that was taking a bunch of investments on behalf of Makkah on its way to Bilad as-Sham
    • The Prophet & a group of Muslims tried to intercept the caravan, but they weren’t able to. The Prophet decided to wait for the caravan to come back from Sham to try to intercept it again. In the midway point of Ramadan, the caravan was heading back, & the Prophet set out towards the caravan
    • In the meantime, Abu Sufyan received the word that the Muslims were on their way to intercept the caravan, so Abu Sufyan sent the word to Makkah, which led to all of the Makkans to gather an army together to fight the Prophet & the Muslims. Similarly, the Prophet was on his way with an army
  • Before they left Madinah, the Prophet had sent out 2 individuals (Basbasa & another man). In another narration, the Prophet sent out the 2 individuals after they left Madinah
    • Scholars have reconciled the 2 narrations by saying that the Prophet sent them out before he left Madinah. The two men went, came back, & met the Muslim army after they had left Madinah. Then the Prophet sent the 2 men back out to investigate the region
  • This is around the time the 2 men reach the Prophet once again & inform him about their findings. In the meantime, the Prophet & the Muslim army were trying to get more intel on Abu Sufyan from the local Bedouins

— The Muslim army came across a couple of people who were bringing camels to a watering hole

  • One Sahabi asked one of the two shepherds, “Tell us about Abu Sufyan.”
    • The man replied, “I don’t know anything about any Abu Sufyan.”
  • Some of the Sahaba then start to beat the man, & the man said, “I can tell you about Utbah, I can tell you about Abu Jahl, I can tell you about Ummayyah bin Khalaf.”
    • He was naming all of the leaders of Quraysh
  • The Sahaba said, “But can you tell us anything about Abu Sufyan?”
    • The man said, “Yes, yes, I can tell you about Abu Sufyan.”
  • When the Sahaba again asked the man about Abu Sufyan, the man replied, “I don’t know anything about Abu Sufyan,” so the Sahaba started to beat the man again
    • The man again said, “But I can tell you about all these other people.”
  • This keeps on going on, & the Prophet was praying during this time. When the Prophet finished praying, the Prophet told the Sahaba, “Stop. Stop beating him. Leave him. When he tells you the truth, you beat him. When he tells you a lie, then you leave him? It’s not making any sense.”

— Around this time, the two scouts that the Prophet had sent (Basbasa & another man) returned & informed the Prophet, “Abu Sufyan might be coming, but there is also a huge army from Makkah headed this way.”

  • The Prophet consults with his 313-strong army. He conducts a meeting. The Prophet asked his Sahaba for advice, “Look, an army of Quraysh is coming. You have this information. Now tell me what you think.”
    • Abu Bakr as-Siddiq stood up and addressed the Prophet & other Sahaba, giving them words of encouragement. He said very good & beautiful things, which the Prophet appreciated, but it wasn’t what he was looking for
  • Again, the Prophet asked, “Who else has something to say?”
    • Umar al-Khattab stood up & said some very admirable things as well, which the Prophet appreciated, but again, this wasn’t what the Prophet was looking for
  • For the third time, the Prophet said, “Does anyone have anything else to say?”
    • This time, 3 men from the Ansar spoke up. Miqdad ibn Aswad (X),Sa’ad ibn Muadh, Sa’ad ibn Ubadah wereAnsari, & they are also the leaders of their tribes in Madinah
    • Miqdad ibn Aswad was the first to stand, & he said, “Ya Rasulillah, you go as Allah has shown you. You do what Allah has told you to do, because we are with you every step of the way. I swear by Allah, we will not say to you as Banu Israel said to Musa alayhi sallam, ‘You & your Lord go and fight.’”

— Miqdad was referencing an ayah from the Qur’an [Surat al-Ma’idah; 5:24], where Banu Israel had told Musa that they would like a place to be able to live & settle, a place that would be fruitful & serve as a home for their community after Allah had freed them from the clutches of the Firaun

  • Allah had inspired to Musa, “Tell Bani Israel to enter such-and-such town, & as soon as they enter, Allah will grant them victory.”
    • It’s said that there was a people in that town called Amaliqa, who were big, strong, & powerful people, but Allah had already guaranteed victory to Banu Israel. They would basically walk into the city, & the city will surrender to them; this was a promise from Allah
  • As soon as Musa had told Banu Israel this, they said, “You and your Lord can fight. We will stay sitting right here. You say that this city is ours, then you go with your Allah, gain victory over this city, & let us know when we should come because we are not about to engage in any conflict.”
    • Allah had reprimanded Banu Israel for this response. The wandering in the valley of Teeh that Banu Israel had to endure for 40 years was a result of this blatant disrespect to the Prophet Musa, though other narrations mention that the wandering occurred prior to this incident
  • In this particular incident, Musa asked Allah, “Oh Allah, separate me from these people. I cannot deal with these people anymore.”
    • Shortly thereafter, Musa passed away

— Miqdad ibn Aswad was telling the Prophet that they would not repeat Banu Israel’s mistakes, “We will not sit here while you and your Lord fight. Rather, you and your Master can go fight, because we will come with you. I swear to the One who sent you with the Truth, even if you were to walk with us to Barqil Ghimad (a place beyond Makkah, on the shore of the ocean; in this context, the ends of the earth or the Arabian Peninsula), we will go with you & we will fight anyone who stands between you & the shore.”

  • The Prophet appreciates this & makes dua for Miqdad. The Prophet then stood up & said, “O people, tell me what you think about going to fight the Quryash.”
  • The Prophet was pushing the issue because he wants to hear more from the Ansar, especially from the leadership of the Ansar

— In the 2nd Bayatul Aqabah, which was during the third meeting that the Prophet was having with people from Yathrib, 70+ people from the Ansar had given their allegiance to the Prophet & the Prophet appointed 12 leaders. There was also an agreement that the Prophet would start sending Muslims on their Hijra to the Ansar, & eventually the Prophet himself would make this journey after he receives permission from Allah. In this meeting, there was also a discussion about the obligations of the Ansar in terms of hosting the Prophet & being the headquarters of Islam

  • Abbas bin Abdul Mutallib, the uncle of the Prophet, was sympathetic towards Islam at this time, but had not become Muslim yet. He had a soft spot for his beloved nephew Muhammad
    • Abbas was present in this meeting, specifically to tell the Ansar, “This is not just some big happy moment. Yes, we love you & you love us, & we come to Madinah & we’ll all pray together & be happy together. It’s not that simple. You have to understand exactly what is at stake. The people of Makkah have sworn to destroy Muhammad, his religion, & his followers. They will stop at nothing. If you people support him, & welcome him to your city, & I know that he will not stop preaching. It’s not that now he has a safe place to live with his followers that he’s going to live their calmly & peacefully & worship & pray the rest of his days. No, he’s on a mission. He’s going to keep preaching. The people of Makkah are not going to stop opposing his preaching. This is bound to come to conflict. When that conflict happens, I need to know that you’ll have his back. When you look at the situation in Makkah, you might not think that we’ve done a very good job of protecting Muhammad, but what you don’t know is that we have protected him against all odds. My brother died. With his very last breath, my brother Abu Talib defended our nephew. He never left Muhammad’s side. He defended him with his very last breath. Similarly, my family & I lived in e years of isolation & boycott, being ostracized by our own community for Muhammad’s sake. We’ve done whatever we’ve needed to do. I’ll need to know that you’ll do whatever you can do.”
  • At that time, certain things had to be agreed to, so a contract/pact was written
    • Part of that allegiance & pact was, “We (the Ansar) do not take responsibility for any previous grievances somebody might have against you until they arrive at our doorstep. If they arrive at our doorstep, we will defend you & we will fight with you by your side. But if you go out in pursuit of a conflict with anyone that you’ve had a conflict with before you met us, that has nothing to do with us.”

— To us, that sounds maybe a little offensive. Why wouldn’t you defend the Prophet til the end of the earth?

  • You have to understand that these people (the Ansar) had just accepted Islam. They have just become Muslim & laid their eyes on the Prophet. They haven’t even stood in salah by the side of the Prophet, so to them, this is all very new
  • At the same time, the 60-70 people who were sitting at this meeting were a very small portion of the population in Madinah. The majority of the city of Madinah had not accepted Islam yet
    • The group present at Bayatul Aqabah don’t know how everyone else is going to feel about this, so they are hesitant to speak on their entire community’s behalf
  • There are a lot of different dynamics to be appreciated here, nevertheless, that was one of the terms that was in the contract drawn up between the Prophet & the Ansar before the Hijra

— To say that the Prophet is a man of his word is a huge understatement. He is the most truthful & trustworthy human being that has ever walked the earth

  • Being a man of his word, the Prophet said to his army, “Look, I understand that these Ansar are not obligated to go way outside of Madinah. They left Madinah under the premise that we rare just going to go & intercept the caravan & rightfully reclaim our belongings for the Makkan Muslims. We had initially set out to just intercept the caravan, but now the situation has completely changed. We’re about to fight an army where the odds are 4 to 1. It has completely changed the situation. Our previous agreement, which both the Ansar & I agreed to, was that the Ansar are not obligated to fight in this type of a situation, so I can’t storm into battle, taking for granted that ‘yes, of course, they’re going to fight with me.’ That’s not fair.”
    • The books of hadith & Seerah mention that there were 313 Muslims in the Battle of Badr. Imam Bukhari says that about 76 of them were Muhajiroon, which means that nearly 240 of them were from the Ansar. The Prophet, being conscious of this fact, thought, “I have to make sure they’re okay with this.”
  • Even though Miqdad bin Aswad stood & spoke in support of the Prophet, the Prophet still said, “O people, advise me.” This was directed at the Ansar

— Sa’ad ibn Muadh stood up & said to the Prophet in the presence of everyone who is there, “Wallahi, it seems as if you’re specifically asking us (the Ansar).”

  • The Prophet said, “Absolutely. That’s exactly what I’m trying to find out – what you think.”
  • Sa’ad ibn Muadh replied, “We believed in you, & we testified to your truthfulness. We testified to the fact that everything you have informed us is the truth. Based off that truth, we swore to you that we will obey you. We will listen to you & obey you. So you do whatever you have been show by Allah, because we are with you. I swear by the One who sent you the Truth, the Truth that we believe in & testified to, that if you took us to the edge of the sea & you dove into the ocean, we would dive into the ocean behind you. My friend spoke about going to the seashore with you. Forget about that. If you dove into the ocean, we would dive with you. I know my people so well that I can stand here & swear to you that not a single person from my people would remain behind. We don’t mind going & fighting our enemy tomorrow. Rasulillah, you know that we are a people that are resilient in battle (Aus & Khazraj had fought for hundreds of years). We don’t get tired of fighting. We are truthful at the time of battle (we are tried & tested). We hope that Allah will give us the opportunity to show you in the battlefield what we’re made of. It will bring you great happiness to see how strong & reliable we are. You go forward with the blessing of Allah, & we will follow you.”
    • The Prophet was extremely pleased to hear what Sa’ad ibn Muadh said. The Prophet said, “Walk forward & receive congratulations because Allah has promised me one of the two outcomes – either we will intercept the caravan or we will defeat the Qurayshi army. I swear to Allah, it is as if I can see where the other people will fall (I can see their defeat before me).”
  • Miqdad bin Aswad said, “We will fight from the right of you & from the left you, from in front of you & from behind you.”
    • This brought great happiness to the Prophet that they were so dedicated that they were willing to stand by the Prophet no matter what happened
  • Now that the Prophet had this confirmation, he & the army continued to go forward

— From the Quraysh’s side, Abu Sufyan is traveling with his caravan. He had sent the word ahead to Makkah that the Muslims are attacking them & Makkans should come & help him. He received word back that the Makkans have gathered a huge army & is marching to protect Abu Sufyan’s caravan

  • Abu Sufyan engaged in a maneuver to avoid the Prophet & the Muslims, & he was actually able to execute this maneuver, which allowed him to avoid the Prophet & move past the Muslims to the point where they couldn’t intercept his caravan
    • Once Abu Sufyan feels that he’s in a good position to be able to avoid the Prophet & the Muslims, he sends word to the Qurayshi army, “I’ve been able to avoid the Muslims. All of our goods & money is safe. All of our war investments is safe. Head back to Makkah, & we’ll see you back in Makkah.”
  • Some people of the Quraysh, when they received this news, left to go back to Makkah
    • Several members of Banu Hashim (the Prophet’s family) left to go back to Makkah because they had no interest in engaging in this fight
  • Abu Jahl received the response & said, “Absolutely not. We’re going to go, & we’re going to keep going until we reach Badr. If we meet the Muslims, we’ll take care of them. If we don’t meet the Muslims, we’re still going to go & camp out there. We’ve brought all these camels to sacrifice for food. We need to finish all that. We’ve brought all this wine. Who’s going to drink all this wine? We’ve brought all this entertainment, what are we going to do with all this entertainment? We’re going to go & basically set up this big carnival, & we’re going to eat & drink, & we’re going to party. If the Muslims show up, we’ll take care of them.”
    • In Surat al-Anfal, Allah revealed, “And do not be like those who came forth from their homes insolently and to be seen by people and avert them from the way of Allah. And Allah is encompassing of what they do.” [8:47]

— On the other side, the Prophet is marching with the Muslims to the place close to where the battle took place. They came close to the Wells of Badr, where they stopped to make camp

  • Badr refers to the full moon. When the full moon would come out, it would reflect on the water from the wells
  • A Sahabi named Hubab ibnul Mundhir (X) said to the Prophet, “Ya Rasulallah, if I may be so bold to ask, this place where you have stopped, is this the place where Allah has told you to stop? That we’re not allowed to go any forward or shift back from this place? Are we not allowed to shift from this position by order of Allah? Or is this just your war strategy?”
    • The Prophet replied, “This is a war strategy. It is not Revelation. Allah left it up to me, about where we can stop. I figured this place looks as good as any.”
    • Everything that the Prophet does is by the instruction of Allah, but this specific action was not by the instruction of Allah
  • Hubab ibn Mundhir said, “Ya Rasulallah, this is not the best place to stop. Let’s continue to go until we reach to the place where the wells of Badr are. We will go to the very last of the wells and we will fill up some of the last wells. We’ll take a bunch of big rocks & dirt & seal those wells so nobody can use them. Then we will retreat to where there is a cluster of wells, & we will dig a big pool; we’ll allow the wells to overflow into one another so that we have a big pool of water for us. Then we will fight from that position. We will fight in front of that big pool of water & we will have plenty of water to drink & use. The enemy won’t have any water, because we would have already rendered the wells on their side useless.”
    • The Prophet replied, “You have a very good opinion. This is a very good strategy.”
  • That is exactly what the Muslims ended up doing

— While the Prophet started to gather the people back together again, Jibril was on the right side of the Prophet. Jibril was the friend of the Prophet, & Jibril has a long history of accompanying all the Prophets of Allah into the battlefield, & he accompanied Prophet Muhammad into the battlefield every single time

  • Jibril was with the Prophet when another angel appeared. This angel said, “Ya Rasulallah, Allah sends you His salaams.”
    • The Prophet said, “Hu as-salaamu wa minhoos salaamu wa ilayhis salaam.”
  • This is similar to the dua we make after the prayer is over. We say salaam to the angels on our left & right shoulders
    • After the salaams, we make the dua, “Allahumma antas salaam wa minkas salaam wa ilayka yarji ‘us-salaam; tabarakta ya dhal jalaali wal ikram.” (X)
    • Translation: Oh Allah, you are the granter of Peace and safety and the source of peace, and from you comes all peace and safety, and only to you returns back all peace and safety; glory to You, You are the One with all the greatness and honor
  • In another narration, the Prophet specifically tells us that we do not say salaam to Allah because He is As-Salaam
    • When you say salaam to someone, you’re making dua for them, “May Allah send His peace & blessings upon you.” So you don’t say salaam to Allah
  • When the salaam came from Allah, the Prophet taught us the above dua “Hu as-salaam…”

— The angel then said, “Allah says to you, ‘You should do what al-Hubab has suggested.’”

  • The Prophet asked Jibril, “O Jibril, do you know who Al-Hubab al-Mundhir is?”
    • Jibril said, “Not just me, but all the inhabitants of the heavens know who he is. He is truthful & this is not from the shaytan.”
  • Some of the muhaddithun say that the Prophet was actually asking about the other angel, that when the angel specifically mentions the name Al-Hubab al-Mundhir, the Prophet said to Jibril, “Can you testify on this angel’s behalf?”
    • Jibril replied, “Yes, of course. He is one of the malaayika (angels). All of us in the heavens know who this angel is, & he is speaking the truth. He is not the shaytan. This is not a demon trying to lie to us.”
  • In either case, the testimony was true. What Hubab al-Mundhir suggested was attested to by an angel & by Allah
    • The scholars mention a few benefits in regards to this game plan that Hubab al-Mundhir suggested

— If you look up Al-Hubab al-Mundhir in all the books that document all the Sahaba & if you look up in the encyclopedia of all the biographies of all the Companions of the Prophet, the only thing that you will find by the name Al-Hubab ibnul Mundhir is that he is the Companion who suggested the strategy of where the Muslims should position themselves for the Battle of Badr

  • That means that outside of this incident, there was nothing else memorable about this Sahabi. Of course, being a Sahabi in and of itself is a huge virtue
    • We’re not talking about that
  • But relatively, in that community of Companions, the community of the Sahaba that had notable people like Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, A’isha, Ummu Salama, Hafsa, & Zaynab (ra), in that community, Al-Hubab al-Mundhir was relatively unknown. He doesn’t stick out anywhere else in the Seerah but the part about Battle of Badr
    • That tells you that relatively, in that community, Al-Hubab al-Mundhir wasn’t a notable person. He was not a leader of that community
  • As Imam At-Tahawi teaches us in his aqeedah, (X) (X) , the virtue of the Sahaba is something that we believe. We believe the Sahaba to be virtuous
    • Allah has spoken about them in the Qur’an. The Prophet has spoken multiple times about the virtues of the Sahaba & made dua for them, “Nobody should oppose my Sahaba after me. Whoever loves them, loves them with my love. Anyone who dislikes them, I dislike that person.”
  • Umar bin Abdul Aziz, a Sahabi & the fifth caliph, was asked, “Who is better, you or Mu’awiyah ibn Abi Sufyan? People call you the fifth khalifa & they call you the second coming of Umar. Who is more virtuous, you or Mu’awiyah, the scribe of Divine Revelation?”
    • Umar responded, “I am not equal to the dirt that was under the hooves of the horse that Mu’awiyah rode in battle by the side of the Prophet.”
    • A Sahabi is a Sahabi. It befits us to recognize the rank & virtues of a Sahabi

— Having said that, in that community, Al-Hubab bin Mundhir was not seen as one of the leaders or as one of the notable or remarkable people. Basically, he was not a standout Sahabi

  • But now, consider the type of leader the Prophet was, the culture that he had created, & the impression that he had given his followers & his subordinates, that each & every single one of them felt completely empowered to come to the Prophet & speak to him about anything & everything
    • Anyone could come speak to the Prophet, without feeling the least bit intimidated, or without feeling the least bit marginalized or unimportant
  • That’s why Hubab al-Mundhir said, “Ya RasulAllah, may I say something?” And of course, the Prophet welcomed it

— The second thing is that a mark of a leader is also the impression, the training, & the tarbiyyah that he gives to the other leaders in his community, organization, or ummah

  • When Hubab al-Mundhir said, “Ya RasulAllah, this place where you stopped us to camp out, is this the place that Allah has instructed you to stop at?” no other Sahabi reprimanded Hubab, “Hey, hey! Who are you? What’s your name? Where are you from? When did you join us? I don’t even know who you are. Like, really? You have an opinion? Please. Please, enlighten us. Abu Bakr has nothing to say. Umar has nothing to say. Uthman has nothing to say. Ali has nothing to say. Sa’ad bin Muadh has nothing to say. Sa’ad bin Ubadah has nothing to say. Miqdad ibn Aswad has nothing to say. Oh, but Hubab has something to say. Hold on, everybody! Hold the press. Hubab has something to say.”
    • That was not the dynamic in that community. Hubab was not ridiculed. He was not mocked nor reprimanded
  • There wasn’t a chain-of-command type of situation, where Hubab talks to a Sahabi who is on a higher “level” than him, then that Sahaba passes along word to another Sahaba at a higher “level”, eventually reaching the Prophet. It wasn’t a situation where the Sahaba told Hubab, “We’re not saying that what you’re saying is not important. Nobody is saying that, but you have to follow protocol, brother. You’re supposed to talk to me, I talk to him, and then he talks to the big guy. Come on, get with the program.”
    • This was not the environment that the Prophet created

— We have a need for greater organization & structure in our community. Do we need more professionalism? Absolutely. Could we use a lot more strategy? Without a doubt

  • Every single one of our organizations or communities is a case study for disorganization, or a lack of organization. We have a desperate need more organization, more structure, so on & so forth
    • But here’s the problem: in the spirit of remedying that, we have taken a lot of corporate culture (what might go on in companies, businesses, & corporations) & we wholeheartedly & fully implement it
  • A lot of different organizational strategies & books/material talk about the fact that there needs to be open communication. Anybody should be able to talk to anybody. Anybody should be able to send an email to anybody. Anybody should be able to approach anybody

— Sometimes, we may come across something in a corporate culture that we view to be very successful, operational, & functional, so we implement it

  • In that culture we find that there are hierarchies, chain of commands, formalities, etc.
  • We have to understand fundamentally, that the ummah is not a business. We have an inferiority complex because the ummah has not been run properly, so we look at successful businesses, & we feel inferior to them, but the ummah is not a business at the end of the day
    • Our bottom line is not money. Our bottom line is souls
    • We’re in the business of saving souls, saving people
  • The Prophet told Ali, “If you could only save one man, than that is better than the whole world & whatever it contains.” The Prophet emphasized the “one man”
    • We’re not a business. We’re not out to make money. We need to follow the example of the Prophet
    • If someone else along the way has something beneficial to us that fits in the style & the Sunnah of the Prophet, then we’ll take it. Any wisdom is something a wise person picks up, but not at the expense of the Sunnah of the Prophet

— The Prophet created a culture & established an environment where a very average & nondescript person from the community feels completely empowered to approach the Prophet & engage him in a discussion

  • Nobody else from the community of the Prophet objected to this. “Why are you listening to him? He’s a nobody! At least let’s see what we think about this.” Then it becomes an ego thing
    • The leaders takes the suggestion from the commoner, & then the other people in the structure who might be leaders or have rank are like, “Who is this? Let him check with us. Let’s see if we agree.”
  • Then the Prophet took this suggestion
  • Then to teach us a lesson, so that we will not forget, Allah sent an angel with a validation of that man’s opinion to the Prophet

— Al-Hubab al-Mundhir’s name never comes up again in the Seerah of the Prophet

  • You contribute, & you give. It’s not like now he became some celebrity. Al Hubab al Mundhir wasn’t looking for any credit, he’s not trying to position himself, & carve out validation
    • We all serve. We are all slaves of Allah & we are all servants of the community. We all follow the RasulAllah

I choose to believe that untranslated ancient elven writing about a spear that glows with unbearable heat means that ancient elves had nukes

well, if we’re departing from the literal reading of andruil’s ritual-of-sacrifice and assuming the glowing spear that you see in your vision is metaphorical, i have to confess that unfortunately glowing spears usually only mean one thing when it comes to the rites of ancient elven god-kings
