Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
وَلَقَدْ نَصَرَكُمُ ٱللَّهُ بِبَدْرٍ وَأَنتُمْ أَذِلَّةٌ ۖ فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ
‘‘Wa laqad naṣarakumu Llāhu bibadrin wa antum aḍillatun fa ittaqū Llāha la‘allakum tashkurūn”
‘’And already had Allah given you victory at [the battle of] Badr while you were few in number. Then fear Allah ; perhaps you will be
grateful.’’ Sadaqa Llahu l-‘Azim.
The Battle of Badr is one of the greatest battles of Islam made by our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam made that battle for the pleasure of Allah جل جلاله in order to raise the religion of Islam. Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla has praised it.
It has many names, one of which is Yawm ul-Furqan. It is the day of separation. It is the day of separating the truth from falsehood.
There were many miracles on that day. Various things happened, things that normally people cannot think of. By the glorious kindness of Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla, its Barakah will be going on until Qiyamah. The Barakah of the Sahabah who had participated in it always comes when their names are remembered. Their names used to be written and hung in houses in old times. Some people still do so. Certainly, Barakah comes to those homes; peace comes there.
It was around these days in Ramadan when our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم cleaned out all the big Kafirs and oppressors in Mecca. Even while leaving Mecca, they did it in fear that day. They didn’t want to leave. The shaytan had come in a human form as a leader from their clan and said, “We shouldn’t leave. Our caravan is saved anyway”. But Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla created a reason for their death, for them to be finished there.
The shaytan cheated them once again. He brought everyone together in Badr and finished them all. Those who are with shaytan will end up like them. They can never win. The Ghalib, Victor is Allah جل جلاله. The shaytan is always defeated. A clever man should be with the winner. Who follows shaytan will be defeated eventually.
Don’t look at the amount, decoration and deception he creates. He will be defeated eventually. He can never be a winner. No one can be a winner over Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla.
Therefore, be together with Allah جل جلاله. The example shown by our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is the greatest example. Allah جل جلاله will help you. Allah will send His جل جلاله angels to you. He جل جلاله will send His جل جلاله Awliya. He جل جلاله will send help to you. You will win.
Angels had come down in that battle. Three thousand, five thousand angels came down. Actually, there is no need for that much angels, for Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla can make just a single angel turn the world upside down with its wings. But He جل جلاله did that to show it for the honor of our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla sent them to honor our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم so that people know that it is not by empty words. The truth and all power cannot be against Allah جل جلاله . The power is together with Allah .جل جلاله
The shaytan ‘alayhi l-l’anah, ‘alayhi ma Yastahiqq (may he get what he deserves) was running away on that day in the appearance of a Bedouin. He also had fought there. But when angels came down, he started running away. The Kafirs asked him, “Where are you running? You brought us here and threw us in the middle, and now you are running.” He said, “I see what you cannot see. I am afraid of Allah جل جلاله”. He jumped and fell into the sea. There is a sea near Badr. He jumped into the sea with that speed because of his fear. So the rest ran away too.
The shaytan is like this. The shaytan never helps. May Allah جل جلاله protect us, don’t be with him insha’Allah. Be with Allah جل جلاله insha’Allah. May the Barakah of this day be upon us. They are called Ashabu Badr, Badri’yyeen. May their Barakah also be upon us insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
