Uhud Battle

The archer of Uhud Battle
& I haven't listened to the CD

3rd Shawwal.

Perhaps... tomorrow is the day of the Uhud Battle. [QA Uhud]

To set things in perspective, after the muslims emigrated to Medina, the Meccans sent a giant army to war with them in the Battle of Badr. [QA Badr] But by Allah's Grace, the small muslim army defeated the giant army 3 times its size. It was a great victory for the muslims. But the Meccans soon mobilize another army to avenge their lost. & they fought again on the plains of Mount Uḥud, on the 3rd of Shawwal 3 Hijrah.

This is the Battle of Uhud. Size: about 1 muslim against 3.

At first, the muslims appeared victorious. But sadly, the archers committed a grave mistake. They left their assigned posts on the hill - a breach of Prophet Muhammad's command - to collect the spoils of war. These gave way for a second assault by the Meccans, and soon the muslims were attacked from all sides. They finally retreated to Mount Uhud. & my beloved Hamza, Lion of Heaven, was martyred.

Still... isn't it beautiful how Khalid al Walid, who led the second assault against muslims, eventually embraced Islam. He became Saifullah (Sword of Allah). And by Allah's Grace, he was undefeated in battles. The Sword of Allah cannot break! But it can get old. & he too passed away... simply in old age.

By destiny, I recently found Orion. Doesn't it look like the muslim archers! How Orion has a star called Saiph (Saif). I imagine the two men I love dearly. They used to be enemies. But now, they're brothers.

I seek refuge to Allah SWT from errors.
Only Allah SWT Knows Best. والله أعلم
