We continue as the Battle of Uhud rages on with the martyrdom of Mus‘ab ibn Umair(RA).
When Mus’ab was killed, the Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) delivered the standard (Raya) to ‘Ali bin Abi Talib.
‘Ali, in conjunction with the other Companions, went on fighting bravely and set marvelous examples of heroism, courage and endurance in both defense and attack.
Hostilities of the enemy grew fiercer than ever with the aim of foiling the plan of withdrawal of the Muslims. Their attempts however proved to be fruitless due to the heroic steadfastness of the lions of Islam
In a regular withdrawal and with great bravery and boldness, the Muslims finally retreated to the cover of Mountain Uhud. Then, the rest of the army followed them to that safe position. In this manner, the genius of Muhammad (ﷺ) foiled that of Khalid bin Al-Waleed.
There were about seventy Sahabah that were martyred in the battle. The speaker provides commentary on a critical point about the power and unity of Islam as he notes that some the Sahabah that lay dead next to each other fighting in the cause of Allah(سبحانه وتعالى) were once enemies of each other due to their tribal affiliations (i.e. Aws and Khazraj). Islam united them in brotherhood.
Using this this example of unity, the speaker examines the recent tragic incident of the killing of the African-American George Floyd by police. The speaker discusses not only this incident, but also highlights the underlying injustice due to racial / ethnic / religious differences that run rampant in the world and provides the only solution for this grave problem.
