Felsen Alima. And my god for industrial Hadith Nicola Mullah

00:03:50--> 00:04:00

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or Shara Ohmori Mahathir to have a cooler more data in beta or cooler beta tombola, Ocula Gualala infinity

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

some of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:11--> 00:04:17

in two different on two different occasions, they had escaped the persecution of Mecca.

00:04:18--> 00:04:33

And they were granted permission to go to Abyssinia because he was ruled by a just king, where justice was the foundation of his kingdom, despite being a Christian kingdom.

00:04:37--> 00:04:42

And when the Muslims came back to Medina, many many many years later,

00:04:43--> 00:04:53

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was speaking to those young people who had lived most of their life over there and now they're back to this new reality.

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

And Jonathan Taleb narrates this hadith in which the poem

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

sallam said

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

to that delegation.

00:05:05--> 00:05:13

He said to them, what was the most interesting thing? What was the most shocking thing that you saw when you were in Abyssinia?

00:05:16--> 00:05:36

And so a few young men said you're rasool Allah. We were one sitting and we noticed that there was this other Syrian woman and she was walking and carrying a vessel of water and perhaps some food on her head. She was balancing it on her head, and she was walking.

00:05:38--> 00:05:42

And a young man came from behind her and shoved her

00:05:44--> 00:05:53

she lost her balance, she fell forward. The water vessel on top of her head fell obviously spilling everywhere and she was very angry.

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

So she said

00:05:57--> 00:06:00

to the young man who had just assaulted her

00:06:02--> 00:06:05

who had just pushed her unprovoked

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

she said sofa tile um, yeah.

00:06:12--> 00:06:21

Either water Allah who could see where Jana Paulina will ask it in what a calamity ad will urge will be my can we xe Boone

00:06:23--> 00:06:34

love with this ummah, La Jolla who the brief of he hopped the hook

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

in alcovy.

00:06:46--> 00:07:10

So she said to that man who had shoved her, that young man she said, You will know very soon on the Day of Judgment, or trader, you will know that when Allah brings the footstool on the day of judgment, and when he brings the first of the people and the last of the people, when the hands and the legs and the feet will all testify for what people have done in this life.

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

Then you will know

00:07:16--> 00:07:48

what is between you and me for what you have done. And the Prophet SAW Selim, he said, she has spoken the truth, she has spoken the truth, she has spoken the truth. How can a nation seek salvation? How can a nation be saved be blessing it except until the weakness of that nation can take its rights back from those who are in power?

00:07:49--> 00:07:55

Without any hesitation, from those who are in power, their rights must be extracted back.

00:07:58--> 00:08:10

But didn't sisters we are living in a time. And over this past week. We have witnessed immense suffering immense oppression, immense volume, beyond measure

00:08:16--> 00:08:20

that I want you to think about in the midst of all of these things.

00:08:22--> 00:08:29

What does Allah subhanho wa Taala what does the pastor Selim teach us? In these moments, what should we do what is our correct action

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

because more often than not, our emotions might sometimes misguide us

00:08:39--> 00:08:59

in the heat of the moment, because we are all feeling the pain. We are all feeling the outrage, we are all feeling the suffering as the person Selim described that the condition of the believer the entire Muslim Allah is like they have a body that if one part of it is hurting, the rest of the body hurts.

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

And we have seen countless images and videos.

00:09:06--> 00:09:10

And our hearts bleed from what we see.

00:09:12--> 00:09:19

Brothers and sisters, oppression and injustice is one of the worst things

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

that anyone can do.

00:09:23--> 00:09:43

In fact, it is so horrible that Allah subhanaw taala has forbade it upon himself. Not that Allah would ever do it. But he said, Yeah daddy in the haram to Valhalla, Anna Seaford out of Alamo Oh my servants I have made oppression haram upon myself. So Do not oppress one another

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

in Hola Hola, yo Luminesce che

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

will Akina keenness and also homeopathy mon Allah does not oppress anyone with anything, but it is the people who are oppressing themselves. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

owes us a full mobile American Yeoman piano. Oppression will be of multiple layers of darkness on the Day of Judgment.

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

So whoa to the oppressors?

00:10:14--> 00:10:23

Whoa to the murderers. Whoa to the tyrants whoa to those who have sold their deen and their honor

00:10:25--> 00:10:30

for personal gain at the expense of the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

brothers and sisters

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

it is it is natural for us to feel outrage and to feel angry and to feel pain.

00:10:45--> 00:10:49

But I want you to look at this example from the life of the process LM

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

in which this companion hubub

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

who was one of the most persecuted companions of all time

00:11:01--> 00:11:25

you know what he was subjugated to? They used to burn a hot iron rod until it was red. And then they would strike his head with that hot rod until he would fall down screaming and pain and then they would melt his skin and the flesh until it reached his bones from behind.

00:11:27--> 00:11:30

Because why? Because he said Leila Hala.

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

What have we been tested with?

00:11:36--> 00:11:42

Kebab even though he came to the US asylum and the process Selim was reclining in the shade of the Kaaba.

00:11:44--> 00:11:57

With few other companions, they were some of the most oppressed people physically tortured and he said yada school Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Messenger of Allah, pray for us do not pray for us, give us victory.

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

The prophets of salaam said

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

there will come a time.

00:12:08--> 00:12:12

There has been excuse me, there used to be a time where the people of the past

00:12:14--> 00:12:24

for those who believed in Allah, a hole would be dug for him. And they would put be put inside that hole. And they would be sawed in half.

00:12:27--> 00:12:42

And they would bring metal cones, knives that would skin them and remove their muscle up to their bones, all because of them saying Lila and Allah.

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

But you are people who are

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

you rush, you're impatient. And that there will come a time

00:12:53--> 00:13:00

where a writer will write between sun and Hadramaut and he will not fear anyone but Allah

00:13:01--> 00:13:05

better than sisters, know in your heart,

00:13:06--> 00:13:22

that all have all of those who have suffered, who have been killed, who had been hurt. Know that Allah subhanahu wa Allah will reward them in ways that you cannot imagine.

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

You must have been in this

00:13:28--> 00:13:35

these murderers are enjoying themselves right now as we speak, as Allah says, when

00:13:36--> 00:13:40

you don't see sebelah here and what am I gonna interrupt him yours Akun

00:13:41--> 00:13:44

do not think that those who have been killed in the way of Allah,

00:13:45--> 00:13:51

that they have just simply died, they're dead, that ended up being alive,

00:13:52--> 00:13:56

being taken care of by Allah being given heavenly sustenance.

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

Brothers and sisters,

00:14:03--> 00:14:17

looking at what is going on, it is time for us to reflect and humble ourselves and be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala has Allah tested any of us here like this before? Like the way we've seen? Has Allah

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

tested our faith like this?

00:14:22--> 00:14:33

Next time when you think you're in a difficult spot, reflect on those who are suffering more, reflect on those who have lost entire families.

00:14:35--> 00:14:36

And ask Allah

00:14:37--> 00:14:45

to grant you patience. ask Allah to give you perspective and what is the meaning of life.

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

Brothers and sisters

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

know that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

will hold all oppressors accountable on the day judgment. There is no escape.

00:15:01--> 00:15:14

Allah tells us in the Quran, well at x seven Allah have orphelins Yamano Bali moon, do not for one think that Allah is unaware of those oppressors for what they have done.

00:15:15--> 00:15:18

Verily Allah is delaying them

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

for the Day of Judgment

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

in which

00:15:24--> 00:15:31

in which they will be punished in which they will be held accountable. They were their necks will be outstretched and there'll be looking forward.

00:15:32--> 00:15:39

But when they see the punishment of Allah, what does Allah describe them? Their hearts will be completely empty in fear.

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

And they will say, Oh, Allah will return us back.

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

And sometimes we ask ourselves,

00:15:50--> 00:16:02

why is it that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't bring justice right now? Why are you Why is it that oppressors seem to be having the upper hand and enjoying themselves? Allah tells us tells us in the Quran,

00:16:04--> 00:16:12

Allah Subhan Allah Rena Cafaro a NEMA normally, only unfussy him in the manual Lila home Leah's dad to eat Manuela whom

00:16:15--> 00:16:49

do not let those those people ever think that we have extended their time out of just for just pure enjoyment, and that is somehow better for them. We are Allah saying that we will only extend it for them so that they may increase in sin than for them is a humiliating punishment. But then sisters, Allah does not break his promises, and know that His will shall be done in this world or in the Hereafter. A political Rihanna has suffered a loss.

00:17:00--> 00:17:05

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while early he was happy he Marienbad.

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

Few months after the Battle of a hood.

00:17:12--> 00:17:16

A man by the name of Abu Bharara Amr ibn Malik,

00:17:17--> 00:17:19

he was the chief of the Benu

00:17:21--> 00:17:35

Benyon tribe, he came to the processor lab and he presented the process along with a gift. The person sent him invited him to Islam. He refused. But he wasn't rude about it. He simply declined the process alum

00:17:36--> 00:17:45

pastor Sallam told him come into Islam and the prophets and, and the processor and he said, Well, here's my gift for you, messenger or Muhammad.

00:17:47--> 00:18:06

And the person Selim says I do not accept gifts from the machine from the from the polytheist. But if you embrace I will accept this gift. So he said, actually, the people around me in my tribe in your niche they have, some of them have become Muslim. So please send for us some people who will come and recite the Quran and teach us about the deen.

00:18:07--> 00:18:21

The master Salam felt that there was something a little bit off and he he knew that the people near nudge during that time were enemies toward the process Allah, he feared for them. He feared that if he did send his companions that harm would come to them.

00:18:23--> 00:18:30

So the man said I will have them under my protection. I'm a chief of the minyama I will protect them. So the person sent him sent 70 of them.

00:18:31--> 00:18:53

And they were amongst the best of the sahaba. The majority of them had memorized large portions of the Quran. They would chop wood and earn money and give it to the people that were living the poor people that are living in the mushy the sofa, these who learn the Quran, and they used to teach it and they used to get up at night and pray. They were simply some of the best of the companions.

00:18:55--> 00:19:00

When they reach their destination for the nephew of this chief,

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

I'm going to fail.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

He hated the process and

00:19:09--> 00:19:14

he gathered 1000 people and he surrounded these 70 companions.

00:19:18--> 00:19:25

And the companion by the number haram bin Mohan he stepped forward he says let me read to them the message from the prophets I send them

00:19:27--> 00:19:33

I'm going to file this nephew of this man of the chief. He signals to a person from behind.

00:19:34--> 00:19:45

And this person comes from behind haram in Milan, the representative of the 70 companions, he takes out a spear and stabbed him from the back till it comes out from the front.

00:19:49--> 00:19:57

And I as this companion was dying, he saw the blood coming out and he took it and he wiped it on his face and he said foods to herbal Kava.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

I have one

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

by the Lord of Aqaba,

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

these 1000 people

00:20:06--> 00:20:15

from real and from the Quran, and from a an OSA, the massacred

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

68 of these companions

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

to have those combat two of them left or coming from behind from the rear end, just checking.

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

And one of them still ended up getting killed, and another one was captured and sold into, into bondage.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

When the pastor seldom heard about this, he became so sad

00:20:41--> 00:20:47

because these were his beloved companions who were murdered for no reason.

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

So he made the

00:20:51--> 00:20:52

buttons this was this is the key point he made

00:20:54--> 00:21:04

for an entire month fetcher Bahar Assa Maghrib, Aisha for them, and to ask Allah to bring justice.

00:21:06--> 00:21:18

And it wasn't until many, many years later, I'm going to faily this person who orchestrated this entire massacre. He came to the pastor Salem and he pretended that he wanted to be a Muslim.

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

And he came with this man called it a bit

00:21:25--> 00:21:37

and he came to us and said, and he said, yada so Allah allow us three to speak in private, and he told it a bit. He says when he gives us this private audience, take your sword out and assassinate the process I love.

00:21:38--> 00:21:42

The person sallam said no, but speak publicly speak publicly.

00:21:44--> 00:21:47

Because of us, as Helen knew this person, well he did.

00:21:50--> 00:22:05

So he started negotiating with us and what am I going to get if I believe in you? Do I get money? He said, No, he doesn't make me your Khalifa make me your tailor. After you die. He said no. He said make me the king of the Arabs of the Bedouin that you are the king of Arabs of the cities. And he said no.

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

The process LM he said

00:22:10--> 00:22:13

he says oh Allah protect me from him.

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

Protect me from him and his tribe.

00:22:18--> 00:22:21

After these two people left and departed Medina.

00:22:24--> 00:22:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a lightning down and killed it a bit on the spot.

00:22:33--> 00:22:49

Then Allah subhanho wa taala, afflicted, I'm going to fail within with an extremely fast growing tumor that only grows in livestock in camels, and it completely destroyed him and he died this painful death.

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

But other than sisters, the processor limb tells us

00:22:55--> 00:23:41

that when the dua of the mother loom the oppressed is made, it goes up to the heavens and is lifted up above the clouds and it opens up the doors of the heavens. And Allah says, Where is that he would generally like to run lucky while abiding by my glory, and by my honor, I will give you victory, even if it's just a little bit later. But then sisters, this teaches us that we must be patient with Allah's decision. The Allah's justice doesn't come on to our timeline, but on the way that he deems it to be wise and at the right time and when it comes, it will come swiftly and no one can stop it. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive those

00:23:44--> 00:23:55

and to admit all of those who have been oppressed in the holy land into for those who Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give their families patients we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to forgive all of us.

00:23:56--> 00:24:13

We ask Allah subhana hotel to give us this to give us the strength to speak justice in the face of oppression. Robina Athena for dunya Hassan Hoffa Kurata Hasina hookah now, Robin Allah to the Colaba, Nevada in Dayton, Ohio, Elena Milan Kurama in Naka, intello Herb Oakley masala
