Sheikh Atabek Shukurov Nasafi

This is a glimpse of the Sira lessons that Sheikh Atabek Shukurov once held.


In the events leading to the Battle of Badr.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was given news that an army from Mecca was coming. He gathered the Muslims and all the leaders of the tribes. The Ansar had an agreement to defend the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in Medina but not outside. Instead of commanding them to fight and leading them into battle like a dictator would he held a meeting to ask the leaders what to do. The emigrants confirmed that they would fight. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked, "O' people advise me."

So Al-Miqdad Ibn Amar said, "O' Messenger of Allah, perform the command of Allah and you have our full support. I swear by Allah, we will not say what the tribe of Isreal said to their Prophet. "You and Lord go and fight; we are here, sitting." Rather we say you and your Lord fight and we are fighting with you. We swear by the one who sent you with the Truth; if you were to take us to Barrk Al-Ghamad (it is a city behind Mecca near Yemen) we would go with you. He thanked him and prayed good for him.


Abdullah ibn Masood (may Allah be pleased with him) said after the passing away of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that he wished to exchange all his works for the words of Al-Miqdad.


Then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "Advise me,
O' people." Saad ibn Mu'adh said, "I reply for Al-Ansar; its is as if you mean us, O' Messenger of Allah." He replied, "I do." He said, "You truly came out for a reason and you were divinely inspired to something else. We truly believe you, trust you and testify that all you come with is the truth. We have given you our agreement and pact to hear and obey you. So go, O' Prophet of Allah, I swear by the one who sent you with the truth, if you were to immerse yourself into this sea and enter it we would go into it and no man would remain behind. Join what you will; cut off who you will; take from our wealth what you will; what you have taken is dearer to us than what you have left. I swear by the one who possesses my soul, I did not traverse this path before; nor do I have knowledge of it. We do not dislike to meet our enemies tomorrow; we are patient during war and truthful during its encounter, perhaps Allah will show that which gives you delight from us."
