00:04:19--> 00:04:27

Shara Mori Mahathir to her or coulomb or data Tim Buddha or Kalevi, that jambalaya Allah, Allah Allah Allah in Vietnam

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

in the theater of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:04:37--> 00:04:41

there was an alliance called Health L for role.

00:04:43--> 00:04:57

This alliance was a socio political alliance, that its framework was agreed upon by the Quraysh and their sub clans. They know Hashem as the new team, so on and so forth.

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

And this

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

hence, this

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

alliance, this agreement

00:05:07--> 00:05:11

aimed to do two things. Number one,

00:05:13--> 00:05:30

it would serve as a venue as a place and opportunity for those who are oppressed for those who had no protection, for those that did not have any sort of social clout, basically the marginalized and the oppressed, for to give them a voice.

00:05:31--> 00:05:36

And number two, it was to bring justice for those people who are being oppressed.

00:05:38--> 00:06:07

So when you when you imagine, this is the Mexican society, it was dominated by the Quraysh, and its sub clans. So if you're not from the corporation from its sub clans, and let's say you're from a smaller tribe, or let's say you really didn't have much of a tribe, or you were an outsider coming in and visiting, if something bad should happen to you, more often than not, during that time, you did not have much recourse for hope.

00:06:09--> 00:06:15

So this agreement paved the way to give those marginalized people

00:06:17--> 00:06:21

a sense of justice, a sense of relief, to give a voice to the voiceless.

00:06:23--> 00:06:28

And it was during that time that we find in even he Shams see it a narration

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

of a very interesting incident

00:06:33--> 00:06:38

in which a man from Iran rush, he came to Mecca with

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

camels to sell them

00:06:44--> 00:06:44

Abuja Hill

00:06:46--> 00:06:54

one of the most ardent haters and enemies, towards Islam and to the pastor Salim and to the Companions and to the believers.

00:06:58--> 00:07:08

He bought some of the camels from this man, that He promised him that I shall pay you back at a certain time, and not a certain date.

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

But did we generally pay him back?

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

The answer is no.

00:07:14--> 00:07:26

And so whenever this man came to ask for payment, we would just dismiss him and not give him his rights. No, give it to you later. I'll give it to you later.

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

You hear the story so often, from those who are owed money, and the people

00:07:35--> 00:07:51

who should be paying them back. They, some of them to be clear some of them either they don't have the means to do so yet, or they're trying to finagle their way out. And here it is, I wish I had finagling his way out.

00:07:52--> 00:08:08

So this man came to the messiness of the Quraysh. And he, he asked, he looked at all the head of the courage and he said, Who here will give victory to give me my money owed by Abuja, who's going to help me get this money back?

00:08:10--> 00:08:15

And during that time, the Quraysh knew that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abuja Hill.

00:08:17--> 00:08:22

Were at odds I was Jehovah was always trying to persecute the Muslims and the prophets of Salem.

00:08:23--> 00:08:30

And yes, the prophets of salaam was known for his honesty and to stand to stand up for the truth and speaking truth to power.

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

But they didn't.

00:08:34--> 00:08:44

They didn't ask this man to go to Muhammad Asad Salem because of that. They actually wanted to provoke a fight between Muhammad Salah Salem.

00:08:45--> 00:09:03

So they said they pointed they said, go ask that man. And it was Muhammad says and he was sitting off to the side in Mecca, Masjid Al haram. So that man came to the house to sell him and he said, this is a situation Abuja owes me this amount of money and he refuses to give it back to me.

00:09:05--> 00:09:12

So the person Salem heard his story, and walked with him and came all the way to the house of Abuja.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

And shoulders inside,

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

as always like a coward.

00:09:19--> 00:09:36

And when you look at the history of all these oppressors, they are nothing but cowards. They prey on the weak and on the oppressed, like Fidel, like Bucha like Ebola, so the process of knocked on Abuja, whose door I asked Who is it?

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

Muhammad Salim says it is Mohammed come out

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

which opens the door.

00:09:47--> 00:09:56

And at that moment and process Adam says Give this man his right. When Abuja Hassan Mohamed Salah Salem and his demand

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

the books tell us

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

Abuja holds face had turned pale white, and he was in severe panic and fear.

00:10:09--> 00:10:21

And he said, Hold here, don't let him leave until I go and bring him his right in other words, right away. So we went into the back of his house, brought the money out and gave it to the man.

00:10:23--> 00:10:31

Later on the college heard about this, and they said, we have never seen you capitulate like this before what happened?

00:10:32--> 00:10:41

How is it that you didn't want to pay him and suddenly Mohammed Salim goes, and aspirin, and you just willingly submissively just give the money to the man.

00:10:43--> 00:10:53

That he said, You do not know what had occurred. When When, when I heard his voice, a deep sense of fear overcame me.

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

And when I opened the door,

00:10:58--> 00:11:02

I had witnessed this huge camel.

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

But you didn't see this huge camel

00:11:07--> 00:11:12

with this ferocious look, and T that was ready to strike and bite me and attack me.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

Now, of course this vision that Abuja had was

00:11:18--> 00:11:22

Mandela, Illinois, and it's from the miracles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

And in this time and age when we see so many of the so much oppression going on in the world,

00:11:31--> 00:11:42

we cannot expect that we will have some sort of ferocious camel behind us that will scare our enemies No, but we have something infinitely more scary and that is Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

Never forget

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

that this narration of the Prophet SAW Selim teaches us not only about the cowardice of the oppressors, but standing up for those who are being oppressed.

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

The Prophet SAW Selim was with his companion.

00:12:04--> 00:12:19

Then his companions were listening and he said on sort of Harker volume and Omar Voluma, Give victory help your brother, oppressor or oppressed for cholera, Julian, so a man companion said to the master Salam,

00:12:20--> 00:12:39

if he is oppressed, yes, I can help him. But if he is a presser, if he is the one who is oppressing others, how am I giving him victory? How am I supposed to help him? In other words, why should I help him the profits or sell themselves and turn now to that you prevent him from doing his oppression?

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

And that is to give victory time.

00:12:44--> 00:13:00

And so you might wonder what does it mean? What does it mean to give victory to the oppressor? It means that you stop him, that you say something that you physically prevent them if you are capable of if no extra harm shall come to you.

00:13:01--> 00:13:06

This is the legacy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala Rasulillah.

00:13:17--> 00:13:40

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah, Allah Allah, he also here you might know about, we are 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of miles away from those who are being oppressed, and we feel weak, we feel helpless. We feel almost guilty of our inability to do anything

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

other than to raise our hands and make dua to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

And that feeling is legitimate. But I'm here to tell you brothers and sisters,

00:13:53--> 00:14:09

that dua is not for the weak and the faint hearted. Because it's during these times, when you feel that you don't have the ability to do anything that shape on will come to you and whisper inside of you and say to you

00:14:12--> 00:14:19

look at you you're eating your food, look at how you're enjoying yourself. You should go do something

00:14:20--> 00:14:39

and the shaitan will keep whispering to make you do something that is possibly not okay to endanger yourself to endanger your family, and we have to be extremely careful and shaitan will keep guilt tripping you until you wonder where is Allah?

00:14:40--> 00:14:44

If Allah is a human machine, how is it that Allah allowed this to happen?

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

And we forget to understand

00:14:50--> 00:14:58

that Allah subhanho wa Taala has a plan and he is Al Hakim and he is the all wise we do not understand this plan of Allah

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

Remember that those who have been martyred? Do you think that they envy our lives in this dunya at this moment?

00:15:14--> 00:15:19

Do you think they're sitting there now in the grave wishing that they came back to this world

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

they are actually happy. Because Allah says, Don't waste time, Sharon,

00:15:29--> 00:15:35

they're happy. In fact, they are waiting for the reward of Allah subhanahu wa taala.

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

And that is why brothers and sisters,

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

with all of the social media and the things that are going on,

00:15:45--> 00:16:13

we have to be very careful in the way of how we understand the Quran and the Hadith of the Prophet Salam, when it comes to being in solidarity and support for those who are oppressed. Number one, it is funneled, we have to understand that it is obligatory, a communal obligation for Muslims around the world to help those who are oppressed. In other words, if some people do it, and stand up for it, then the rest will not be held accountable. But at least some people have to

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

number two,

00:16:17--> 00:16:29

it is very common. And there's this word in sociology called social proofing, that when we see someone else do it, we think that means it must be legit that if everyone else is doing it, that means it must be okay.

00:16:30--> 00:17:05

In other words, if we are not doing it, if someone is not doing it, we almost look at them, like what's wrong with them. And what I mean, specifically brothers and sisters is every human being in the way how they respond to these catastrophes and calamities is different. Some people scream, some people cry, some people go and write a post on social media, some people go to protests, some people go and donate, some people will make dua, and some people will go and confront those who are spreading lies, for example. And each and every one will do their own method.

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

And the but the most important thing is,

00:17:10--> 00:17:37

let's not tear each and every one of us down by saying, Oh, brother, I didn't see you at this. I don't know if you truly are in support. Allah, I don't know if you're really sincere or not, that's none of your business. Every one of us is accountable in their own ways to support in the way that they can and they will be held accountable now that eyes of Allah of how much they can and remember within the confines of the law,

00:17:38--> 00:17:45

that we do not do a thing that is prohibited from the Quran, and from the Netherlands and Salem and within the laws of the land.

00:17:46--> 00:18:05

Another point for us to think about is if you are physically witnessing things that are in front of you, like people being harassed and this and that, and you have the capability of doing it have to stop it like verbally at least, you must do so the province has sent him he tells us in a narration

00:18:07--> 00:18:13

men within movement phelim Yong Soo well who are called Surah, who,

00:18:14--> 00:18:29

Allahu Allah, Allah, Yama, the person Selim says, Whoever sees that another Muslim is being humiliated. So if you see some sort of individual out there, saying horrible things to another Muslim,

00:18:30--> 00:18:36

verbally attacking them, accusing them of things, and you are capable of stopping it.

00:18:37--> 00:18:47

But you did not do so. A loss Hunter Hautala will humiliate them in front of all the creation on the Day of Judgment. Brothers and sisters.

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

The average rate,

00:18:52--> 00:18:57

the average amount per month to help an orphan is about $150.

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

You could say Brother, I cannot afford that.

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

Call your Congressman.

00:19:07--> 00:19:18

Make dua even if you can only afford $10 A month do it. If you hear someone saying something wrong about other people, give victory to them. Stop it say that's not true.

00:19:19--> 00:19:31

Then yes, unfortunately, we're living in a time where saying certain things get us in trouble. Remember, you're doing this for Allah. Not because you don't want people to come and shame you and say Oh, brother, you didn't stand up.

00:19:34--> 00:19:43

It's um, doesn't require us to suffer in order to show our sincerity. That's a very Judeo Christian theology way of thinking.

00:19:46--> 00:19:50

You don't need to lose your livelihood in order to prove your sincerity.

00:19:51--> 00:19:55

But you must do what doesn't harm you.

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

So that means at least if it means you donate to read

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

putable save a charity to make dua.

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

This is the least that you can do.

00:20:07--> 00:20:15

But then sisters on the day judgment, the process and tells us of it that Allah will tell his servants, oh my servant.

00:20:16--> 00:20:44

I was ill and you did not visit me. And the man will say, Oh Allah, You are the Lord of the universe. How can How could you be sick? Allah will say, one of my servants was ill, and you did not visit him. Oh my servant. I was hungry and you didn't feed me. The man will say, Oh Allah, You are the Lord of the universe. How is it that you need to be fed, you don't need to be fed. Allah will say, one of my servants was hungry, and you did not feed them.

00:20:45--> 00:20:56

Oh my servant, I was thirsty and you didn't give me water? All Allah You are the Lord of the universe. How could you ever be thirsty? One of my servants was thirsty and you didn't give them water.

00:20:58--> 00:21:20
