Alhamdulillah aerobill alameen wa t but a little more talking while I read one Illa Allah Dolly mean? Why shall one La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika lah wa Chateau a now Mohammed Abdullah who was a Zulu sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa when da da when he was standing be so nutty elomi Dean salanter Sleeman kathira Am I bad

00:00:29--> 00:00:55

for Siegelman? FCB Allah azza wa jal with some evil ta or Kunal Huck suparna usabilla immunisation shaytaan the regime yeah are you Hi Latina Armando taco la tokachi. While at mutanda illa, anta Muslim, all praises due to Allah Lord of the worlds. In surely the best reward ultimately, is for those who have Taqwa.

00:00:56--> 00:01:01

And surely there is no animosity, except for the oppressor.

00:01:02--> 00:01:26

And I bear witness that Allah is one and has no partners. And that Mohammed, the son of Abdullah, is a servant and his last messenger. And may Allah always and constantly send peace and blessings to Mohammed, to his family, to his companions, to all those who call to his way and establish his Sunnah to the Day of Judgment.

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

As to what follows I begin by reminding myself and you

00:01:33--> 00:01:42

that we need to nurture and culture the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala that we need to develop our taqwa,

00:01:43--> 00:01:51

the consciousness of God, that we are aware of the punishment of Allah, but we hope ultimately in the mercy of Allah.

00:01:52--> 00:02:09

And that will develop in us a type of feeling of voice that will guide us away from evil things that will help us as human beings to overcome the negative promptings within us.

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

Because this world has been made with opposites there is good and there is evil.

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

And the evil has been created for a reason.

00:02:23--> 00:02:38

The Evil has threatened the profits from the beginning. The Evil has surrounded human beings. But Allah subhanaw taala in his mercy, has given guidance through the prophets and given us a way out

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

of the difficulties that we find ourselves in.

00:02:42--> 00:02:56

And Allah azza wa jal in revealing the last revelation has given us information, crucial information for us, that we structure our lives around this information,

00:02:57--> 00:03:01

that we motivate our youth around this information.

00:03:03--> 00:03:16

And Allah azzawajal has told us, oh, you who believe have the consciousness of Allah fear Allah in the way that he should be feared, and do not die, except in a state of Islam.

00:03:17--> 00:03:21

So the bottom line for us, and that we pass on to our children

00:03:23--> 00:03:47

is that with all the confusion we see in this world, with all of the temptations around us, our ultimate goal, our ultimate challenge, which will defeat the evil is not gaining money, or gaining authority, but to leave this world to make transition from the world has a Muslim in a state of Islam.

00:03:48--> 00:03:58

And a Muslim is not one who just has a name or a family, but is one who is in submission, submission to the will of Allah.

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

And it is a beautiful name.

00:04:02--> 00:04:12

It is a beautiful description that Allah azzawajal has given to us. And we should never be ashamed of this description. Our children should never be ashamed.

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

As we move toward the Day of Judgment,

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

we will hear many negative things.

00:04:22--> 00:04:30

We will even see the name Islam or Muslims being used in negative ways. And we find it today in the media

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

that anything a Muslim does if the Muslim even sneezes in the wrong direction.

00:04:39--> 00:04:46

They will try to paint it as though he's an aggressor. Because he's sneezing on somebody next to him.

00:04:47--> 00:04:50

And you will see the name of Muslim the beautiful name

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

being put down publicly.

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

And that is a challenge

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

because we have to rise above

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

The circumstances that we are in rise above the petty

00:05:07--> 00:05:21

clashes that are going on the petty insults and attack and realize there is a greatest struggle that is going on, and that we as human beings, are right in the middle of the struggle.

00:05:23--> 00:05:31

And this struggle began right in the beginning of time for human beings with the creation of Adam alehissalaam.

00:05:33--> 00:05:38

And it is enshrined in the core n, which is giving us history.

00:05:39--> 00:05:53

And this information coming into court and is not just for the law. It is not just to read, but it is also for us to think about the fact

00:05:54--> 00:06:26

we read it and we think about it, we contemplate on what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. And Allah azza wa jal in certain Baqarah verse 30, has told us to be lamina shaped on the regime, what is called a bucola mala aka in Ninja in one fell out of the halifa kalu. Attach Alfie Harmon UFC doofy ha, well, yes we could, Dima. Well, no, no, no sub B will be hum de Kanaka de select color in the Alamo. mulata Allah,

00:06:27--> 00:06:33

Allah subhanaw taala has given us information of an early scenario

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

where the Creator

00:06:38--> 00:06:47

with the angels in the company of the angels has informed the angels who are created before human beings.

00:06:48--> 00:06:53

And also in that company was a genie, the gin were also created,

00:06:54--> 00:07:21

and the gin are good and evil. So there were gin who are causing confusion. And they were gin who are doing what is right. So the struggle of good and evil had already existed on the earth, the opposites were there. And then Allah tells us what happened. And the Quran speaks. And when your Lord said to the angels, I am going to place in the earth a Khalifa

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

a successor representative

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

the angel said

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

What will you place in it one who will make mischief and shed blood

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

and we celebrate your praise and your holiness.

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

And then allow returned to them and said to them

00:07:44--> 00:07:50

in the Alamo, maga tala, verily I know that which you do not know.

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

So the angels then having the rights and the ability to question a lot gave them the right to question.

00:08:01--> 00:08:10

They said, We are praising you were praising you. Angels did not disobey. We spent our whole life and tasveer.

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

But you're making another creation.

00:08:17--> 00:08:32

And two qualities are mentioned that the angels bring up. And we need to keep these qualities in our mind when we analyze the present world situation. And then think about our own place in the world situation.

00:08:33--> 00:08:40

Number one, the angel said, will you make somebody who will do facade you've seen goofy Ha.

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

We will make a move set

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

and facade

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

is corruption.

00:08:49--> 00:08:56

mischief. So this is a mischief maker. It also in Arabic can be used to mean immorality.

00:08:57--> 00:09:09

And it can also mean decomposition. When something decomposes, when it decays, and morphs it is one who causes decay.

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

Who causes evil? Who causes immorality? And so the angel said, Are you going to make a move sit in this earth?

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

And will you also make

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

a creature who will shed blood?

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

Seth Kadima

00:09:32--> 00:09:40

and when this word Seth is used with deema in Arabic, it is meaning like bloodshed, pouring of blood,

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

a massive blood letter.

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

But Allah said, I know what you don't know.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

And Allah subhanaw taala taught Adam the name of everything. He gave Adam knowledge and he asked the angels

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

Do you know this they didn't know and they submitted. So the human being has got two sides or two roads. One is the road of halifa.

00:10:12--> 00:10:23

And this is what Allah subhanaw taala knew about human beings, that this creature could be as the Quran says to us laqad falaknuma insanity.

00:10:24--> 00:10:30

Sangeeta aqui we have made human beings in the best of form.

00:10:31--> 00:10:36

So the first aspect of a human being is the halifa.

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

This is the successor. This is the representative

00:10:42--> 00:10:55

Khalifa is not one, a political leader who grabs grabs some land and tries to enforce Islamic law or Islamic punishment that's not Khalifa does a distorted understanding.

00:10:56--> 00:11:07

The real Khalifa is the representative of Allah subhanaw taala on the earth, and allow knew that the human being has this capability

00:11:08--> 00:11:28

has the capability to rise above the angels to be the best of creation. And also that amongst these human beings would be prophets would be messengers, solid own righteous people sit deikun truthful and honest people would come from amongst the human beings,

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

they will also be amongst them inhabitants of gender.

00:11:35--> 00:11:40

They would be people who would enter gender some who would go to genital fair dose,

00:11:41--> 00:11:57

some would reach the rank of going to the highest part of gender. So Allah knew this. But at the same time, Allah azza wa jal knew, and this is where the questioning comes in, that the other side of human being would be there.

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

That is the mischief maker.

00:12:01--> 00:12:11

That is the corruptor that is the one who who spreads murder and killing and destruction on the earth.

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

And so these two elements within the human personality

00:12:17--> 00:12:22

have been the chief struggle that human beings have been in.

00:12:23--> 00:12:29

And we can see today as we move toward a climax point

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

that these two elements of facade and self Kadima,

00:12:35--> 00:12:40

corruption and bloodshed, they go hand in hand.

00:12:41--> 00:12:48

As morality increases, and we see it increasing on the radio,

00:12:49--> 00:13:05

on the television, on the internet, all around us even now in education for little children, to teach the little children as we see morality, increasing bloodshed is also increasing.

00:13:06--> 00:13:14

The amount of people dying in the wars, the ability of human beings to take life, it is also increasing.

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

And so they go hand in hand.

00:13:20--> 00:13:30

And this is all part of the facade. And Seth Kadima of the human being. And so when we go back to sort of room, the oft repeated

00:13:31--> 00:13:35

verse 41 inserted room, it makes more sense to us.

00:13:37--> 00:13:58

Because Allah azza wa jal is telling us in this chapter, the huddled facade to fill Barbary well, Baja Bhima, Casa idns, Levy, Kahan, Bada Levy, Emmylou, La La myalgia corruption has appeared, you see the word, the hora, alpha sad, remember what the angel set.

00:13:59--> 00:14:12

This verse said, corruption has appeared on the land and the sea, because of what humanity's hands have earned. And we will make them taste something of what they have done

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

in order that they would return to the path will make them taste it.

00:14:19--> 00:14:31

And so it makes more sense. Now that we see the corruption there when people lose control of themselves when the immorality becomes the main struggle of the day

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

to be immoral, when the heroes of the youth

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

being propagated in our society are immoral people.

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

Even the ones to protect us are immoral and those who are in the religious people of all different religions put to the background.

00:14:52--> 00:14:57

Then we are reaching a climax point and there is in this point

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

where the message

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

The prophets has been

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

the rescue of humanity.

00:15:08--> 00:15:19

It is through the message given to every nation every tribe, and the message message that was finalized with the last prophet Mohammed Salah Salah. It is through this,

00:15:20--> 00:15:30

that humanity has a way out, to turn into or to turn away from the corruption and bloodshed to the Khalifa.

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

The Khalifa is a protector,

00:15:34--> 00:15:38

the Khalifa brings Unity has mercy.

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

The halifa not only takes care of himself,

00:15:43--> 00:15:53

and his troops and the people around him, the halifa has the responsibility of the Earth itself of the very Earth

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

looks to the Khalifa for protection.

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

And the last prophet Mohammed Salah Salah

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

has been given a focused message

00:16:05--> 00:16:11

this quarter and is a focused message How can we maintain the position of being Khalifa

00:16:12--> 00:16:27

How can we live up to this responsibility? Allah subhanaw taala commanded us in Surah Al e Imran and told us what testing will be hubzilla hegemon, Walla, Walla to

00:16:28--> 00:16:35

hold on to the rope of Allah all together, be not divided.

00:16:36--> 00:16:46

It continues remember the mercy of Allah on you, you were enemies. And we brought you together. We brought love in your hearts.

00:16:47--> 00:16:51

And so the Unity holding on

00:16:52--> 00:17:08

Allah subhanaw taala also revealed nulla Dena Farah codina Homer Can you share and less than in Humphrey shake, that those who divide up the religion and become different groups, you Oh Mohammed Salah you're not a monster.

00:17:09--> 00:17:11

So the unity of the Jamaat

00:17:13--> 00:17:20

inclusion, being able to accept other Muslims, even if there's differences amongst us.

00:17:21--> 00:17:33

Having that ultimate responsibility of the halifa to the point where the prophet SAW Selim even said, See babble Muslim for soup wakita Allahu Kufa.

00:17:35--> 00:17:37

He said if you insult a Muslim,

00:17:38--> 00:17:48

it is a form of disobedience to Allah. But if you fight another Muslim, it is kafa it is disbelief.

00:17:50--> 00:17:53

And so, the message is focused and clear.

00:17:54--> 00:18:00

It is focused and clear and we are now in the barrel of decision. We are in the barrel of decision.

00:18:01--> 00:18:08

It will start on all different levels. But we cannot think that because we are Muslims were safe.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

Because this book,

00:18:11--> 00:18:14

it is it contains everything.

00:18:15--> 00:18:22

It contains scenarios that will be shocking for us to understand, as we see it today.

00:18:23--> 00:18:36

going across the Muslim world, a state of mind which inshallah we pray will end but a state of division in the mind, where one will look to another what's the difference between that person

00:18:37--> 00:18:42

look to divide, to break into groups and worse the group will fight each other.

00:18:44--> 00:18:59

One of the great companions of the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah, obey any cop rather law, one one of the masters of the court and it is reported that he used to read certain arm, verse 65.

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

He used to read this verse, and it is said when he read it, he would tremble.

00:19:07--> 00:19:11

His body would literally shake when he read this particular verse.

00:19:13--> 00:19:17

And Allah subhanaw taala had said colocado

00:19:18--> 00:19:33

Giroux, Allah and yamasa, la cama daban, menfolk a con old mentality or Julie come, o el bisa. Come, Sharon. When you think about the combats about under k for new surgery for Aya la la homea.

00:19:34--> 00:19:53

Allah revealed say, he has the power to send on you a punishment from above you or from beneath your feet, or that he would throw you into confusion, making you different parties, and making you taste the tyranny of

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

see how we display the revelations in order that they would

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

Stand, you see, in order that they would understand. And so this is a state that the court and was talking about.

00:20:09--> 00:20:12

And it is part of the struggle of humanity.

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

But the beauty of Islam is that Allah subhanaw taala has given us a way out.

00:20:19--> 00:20:29

And this has happened before to Muslims, they have reached a point of disunity, turn back to Allah subhanaw taala and then rose up in a revival.

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

This is the point right now.

00:20:34--> 00:20:55

On a personal level, on a family level, on a community level, how can we bring unity? How can we begin to appreciate other Muslims, even if they're slightly different than us? And how can we now look at humanity outside of the masjid as part of our family as well?

00:20:57--> 00:21:07

Because this is the human family. And our responsibility doesn't end with the masjid. The responsibility is the whole of the earth.

00:21:08--> 00:21:11

facade has results.

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

It is reported

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

in the San Fernando Valley of California

00:21:20--> 00:21:27

that 90% of all pornographic films are made in the San Fernando Valley.

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

Right now, California

00:21:31--> 00:21:36

is under the worst drought in 1200 years.

00:21:38--> 00:22:05

And it is getting worse. And they are also sitting at the point of a massive earthquake on the San Andreas Fault and they have been waiting for this earthquake, but the corruption is continuing. And if human beings do not turn back, there is a result. As Allah said, Remember in the room, the Zika hongbao, the lead the amilo, we will make them taste

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

what they have done.

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

And so the water

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

is being lifted.

00:22:14--> 00:22:35

And water is so important to us. Water is the basis of life. Allah azza wa jal tells us conservative anbiya wa jal nominal not equal the shape and height of aluminium, we have made from water every living thing, will they not then believe.

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

So when the water is lifted, it is a punishment.

00:22:42--> 00:22:45

And the promise of Allah subhanaw taala is true.

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

Water is crucial,

00:22:49--> 00:23:03

crucial to human life. The last message focused on water as a means of purification, that every day we have to turn to water to purify ourselves in order to pray.

00:23:04--> 00:23:12

That water is so important that in the Islamic cities, for the first time public drinking areas within

00:23:13--> 00:23:27

that they literally had within Islamic cities, the Seville they have places where you could water your animal where you could drink what we call today, public water fountains. These were not found in Europe before.

00:23:28--> 00:23:33

It was Muslims who introduced this, because water is so important to life.

00:23:34--> 00:23:44

And the prophet SAW Selim said very clearly a natural sugar coffee aletheia that people should share three things. They should share pasture and grazing.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

They should share fuel

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

and they should share water.

00:23:52--> 00:23:58

It is not private property within Islam. It cannot be the property of a royal family

00:23:59--> 00:24:13

or the property of a particular group. All people are should our cap should be sharing in these three things. And the prophet SAW Selim also said among the three people who Allah will ignore

00:24:14--> 00:24:28

on the day of judgment will be a man who having water in excess of his needs. He refuses to give a traveler a drink of water. He's got some extra water, but he refuses to give it to him. wasafi

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

Allah will not look at him

00:24:32--> 00:24:51

on the Day of Resurrection, which means that that person will be terribly punished. And so it is a crucial responsibility and is something that we need to teach to our children about being Muslim. Even the water that we have in abundance here, how long will it last?

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

fracking and other types of actions are polluting water and so we as part of the human family,

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

As part of the family here in Canada, need to see ourselves involved in saving the environment. That's part of the job of halifa. It's not a political thing. That's the real Khalifa, the one who takes responsibility and in fulfilling this role, then no matter what they say, no matter what they do,

00:25:22--> 00:26:12

they can curse all they want, but the people will ultimately know who the real Muslim I guess, if the real Muslim stands as the Khalifa, as the as the future inhabitants of Paradise, as the one who has conquered the facade and Seth Kadima, the corruption and bloodletting May Allah subhanaw taala enable us and help us to be the true believers in the May Allah azza wa jal make our children the true believers on the land. May Allah bring peace and unity in this world. May Allah help humanity to stop shedding blood and spreading corruption. And may Allah make our last word Kelly ma la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam akula Kali how the well stocked for lolly welcome
