00:07:35--> 00:08:23

I'll praise the due to Allah Lord of the worlds. Surely the best reward ultimately, is for those who have Taqwa. And surely there is no animosity, except for the oppressor. And I be a witness that Allah is one and has no partners. And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi. wasallam is his servant and his last messenger. And may Allah always 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 as to what follows Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us in His mighty quarter and the last revelation,

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

oh you who believe.

00:08:27--> 00:08:36

Have the consciousness of Allah and let every soul look to what it put forward for tomorrow, and fear Allah?

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

Surely Allah is well aware of all that you do.

00:08:41--> 00:08:50

And be not as those who forgot Allah, and so he made them forget themselves. Surely they are the disobedient ones.

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

Oh, you who believe.

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:57--> 00:09:12

has blessed us to be followers of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one of the most challenging times that we have seen in hundreds, if not 1000s of years.

00:09:13--> 00:09:20

And this challenge brings great rewards. But it also includes great tests.

00:09:21--> 00:09:54

And Allah azza wa jal is with those who are patient in Allah Hama, sabreen. Those who preserve those who continue those who do not give up although they are at the end of the race. And so historically, we have seen many situations where believers have found themselves in a state of crisis. Yet through their patience and perseverance, they were able to achieve the victory

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

around 2500 BC.

00:10:01--> 00:10:07

The Egyptians, the people of the Nile Valley, had reached the pinnacle of civilization.

00:10:08--> 00:10:13

They constructed a building called the Great Pyramid of Giza,

00:10:14--> 00:10:18

from over 2,300,000 blocks of granite,

00:10:19--> 00:10:39

it was the largest the tallest building on earth for 3800 years. It was not until the 18th century, that human beings constructed a building as large as the one done by the Egyptians of the Nile Valley.

00:10:42--> 00:10:47

And after 100 years or so, after the construction of this great structure,

00:10:48--> 00:10:53

their leaders began to consider themselves to be godlike.

00:10:55--> 00:11:03

And so the Pharaoh, which is a title for the king of Egypt, was considered to be a living God.

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

And Allah tells us in the end,

00:11:09--> 00:11:22

in the fair Ana, Allah fill out, that the pharaoh raised himself up in the earth, put himself in a position that human beings are not supposed to be in.

00:11:23--> 00:11:31

He exploited his people. He divided them into groups. He killed the young men.

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

He controlled the young women.

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

And this continued for a period of time.

00:11:43--> 00:11:46

Allah azza wa jal raised up Moosa Allah He said,

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

from the children of Israel,

00:11:52--> 00:12:01

strengthen Moosa with nine clear signs. Jessa is in Beijing that

00:12:02--> 00:12:08

from amongst those signs, were years of drought, famine,

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

floods, locusts,

00:12:13--> 00:12:20

1000s of frogs, lice coming into the bodies of people by the millions,

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

water turning into blood.

00:12:25--> 00:12:30

The Federal own was threatened in his power.

00:12:31--> 00:12:46

And so he verbally attacked Musab a sedan and began to prepare for his destruction. And Moosa answered and it is enshrined in the court and Karla Mousavi konista in ob Allah He was below.

00:12:48--> 00:13:01

In now, Abdullah he, you read to how many Yasha woman a baddie, well happy but a little more Turkey. Moosa said to his people, is that you know, Billa he was spirou

00:13:03--> 00:13:23

take your assistance from Allah and have patience, because this earth belongs to Allah and He will give it to whom he pleases from his worship His and servants and the best reward is for those who have the consciousness of Allah.

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

Oh, you who believe.

00:13:28--> 00:13:44

Today, we are witnessing another Pharaonic structure, a new world order, a secular structure that encompasses the world which is now under serious threat.

00:13:46--> 00:13:53

And Allah subhanaw taala is bringing the signs clearer and clearer.

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

The United Nations

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

intergovernmental panel on climate change

00:14:02--> 00:14:16

has recently released a report looking at the whole of the planet Earth and their conclusion was we are facing Code Red as humanity

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

they have brought together the incidence in the world

00:14:24--> 00:14:34

and from amongst those clear signs, there are nine clear sides among amongst the so many that are happening in this world.

00:14:35--> 00:14:39

Record heat waves, droughts,

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

massive floods,

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

fire out of control, forest fires and coming from out of the forest fires is smoke or Doohan, which is one of the major signs of PMI, it's already beginning. This is the fall.

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

Not to the major signs of yomo Fiamma.

00:15:05--> 00:15:18

Massive rainstorms, it is said that recently the storms in Hainan China were the largest rainstorms in 1000 years.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

famine,

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

shortage of food,

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

locusts, coming out of the destruction,

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

animal extinction, the animal world is now being destroyed at a rapid level.

00:15:41--> 00:16:15

Number eight landslides, Earth literally tumbling down upon the heads of the people, and not just in India or Africa, in Europe, in America, in all parts of the world. And number nine, virus, a virus as we know, the COVID-19 and this is the tip of the iceberg that is threatening all human beings throughout the earth, this is in V net.

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

And the international

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

organization came to a conclusion.

00:16:25--> 00:16:44

And this is important for us to reflect upon, because Allah has given us conclude a clue conclusions already. But this is what human beings who depend upon science, who believe that science is the most important thing. The scientists said,

00:16:45--> 00:17:22

We need transformational change, Operation operating on processes and behaviors at all levels. On the individual level, the community level, the business level, institutions and governments. We must redefine our way of life and consumption. That's not a Muslim talking. That's the science as they said, We have to redefine our way of life.

00:17:24--> 00:17:38

Allah told us very clearly warning us in Surah two room verse 41 dot alpha said Phil Barbary one baja v. Mikasa. Bad idea. NASS liyu DITA Hamada, laddy amilo Now Allah whom era God

00:17:40--> 00:17:48

corruption has appeared on the land and the sea, because of what humanity's hands have done.

00:17:49--> 00:17:58

And we will make them taste something of what they have earned, in order that they would return to the past.

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

And so Allah subhanaw taala, for one humanity, about facade, about corruption, exploiting the earth, not having respect for Allah's creations, putting materialism and consumption over everything else. Now the scientists are saying, we have to change our way of life. That's Dean, your dean is your way of life. We have to change our way of life. We had code read.

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

This is the point where the earth has reached.

00:18:40--> 00:18:42

But instead of looking at the issue,

00:18:43--> 00:19:02

many of the modern Pharaonic spokes people like the Sahara, in the time of fed on withdraw their, their snakes, many of them in the media want to blame Islam and Muslims

00:19:03--> 00:19:07

to divert the issue from what is really happening.

00:19:08--> 00:19:32

And that is the challenge. The challenge is that the earth is going through a transformation that the Muslim world despite what is happening to us, is getting stronger, and stronger and stronger. And the signs that Allah subhanaw taala is bringing to the earth is going to make a balance in power on earth.

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

on everybody's lips, throughout the world,

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

is the recent events in Afghanistan.

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

The Taliban, taking power

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

after 20 years, after generations of suffering of the Afghan people suffering in the economy having some of the richest reasons

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

Sources on earth but getting nothing from this carpet bombing,

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

weapons of destruction thrown upon them.

00:20:09--> 00:20:17

complete destruction on a people they are rising up out of the ashes.

00:20:19--> 00:20:26

And this is where those who believe in Allah and His Messenger need to return to the Sunnah.

00:20:27--> 00:20:49

They need to return to the way of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon it because it is not just the struggle or the victory, but it is what is after the victory. 20 years ago, we cried on a Juma when the Russians ran out of Afghanistan. We cried for the victory.

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

But the challenge came after the victory.

00:20:55--> 00:21:01

And they were not able to deal with their hearts to deal with the truce.

00:21:02--> 00:21:20

And they began to fight each other after the victory. This is a lesson for all Muslims throughout the earth. Whatever gains power whether you gain power on an individual level, with your family, in your community and your nation, we are under a test.

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

The profits are solid is the best example for us.

00:21:27--> 00:21:30

In this case of transformation of power.

00:21:32--> 00:21:48

How would rasulillah Solo Solo deal with this? When Mecca was opened up? The great victory of fecteau Mecca, the prophet peace be upon him entered into Mecca with his head bow.

00:21:49--> 00:21:56

He entered in humility, really realizing that victory is from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:21:57--> 00:22:13

And he left us a legacy which is not so well known by our community and needs to be understood by those who claimed to follow the Sunnah or those who aspire to be like the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

00:22:14--> 00:22:16

Ali Ibn Abi taalib

00:22:17--> 00:22:33

rhodiola one reports. When I took possession of the weapons of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, I found in the hilt of the sword was a parchment.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

This is Ali talking.

00:22:37--> 00:22:50

And this is after the death of the Prophet Sal. Salaam Ali was the oldest male member in the family of the Prophet so he had to deal with the inheritance. What was the largest, most valuable

00:22:51--> 00:22:57

piece of equipment or value it was his sword.

00:22:58--> 00:23:10

And the prophet SAW Selim, although he was unleaded, he was oral in his knowledge, he must have dictated to one of his companions who wrote on a parchment.

00:23:12--> 00:23:17

The Prophet knew Ali could read. He was one of the 20 who was writing at that time.

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

And so Ali, back to the Hadith. Ali reports.

00:23:24--> 00:23:40

On this parchment, were the following words. Silman cutter aka Well, I sent in our men Assa t like we're called on Huck. Well, no other nothing. Three great principals.

00:23:41--> 00:23:47

Silman cutter, aka keep relations with those who cut you off.

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

Well, I sent element OSI like, and do good two people, even if they harm you

00:23:59--> 00:24:04

and speak the truth, even if it is against yourself.

00:24:05--> 00:24:27

This is the Messenger of Allah alayhi salatu was slapped on his weapon. What do soldiers today write on their weapons, they curse the enemies. But the prophets are seldom gives important advice to us today. That even though this is for our leaders in Afghanistan and other parts of the world,

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

even though we are cut off, keep relations with people.

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

The profit sell sell them forgave the people of Mecca after he opened it up.

00:24:40--> 00:24:49

And do good to people stand for righteousness. Even if bad is done to you. You can't fight evil with evil

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

and speak the truth. Even if it is against yourself, conflict resolution. We have to be able to resolve it.

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

Conflicts

00:25:03--> 00:25:09

after the victory. When we have power. Can we say that that person is right and I'm wrong?

00:25:10--> 00:25:29

Can we realize that even within the Sunnah, there are different ways of doing things. That is the balanced type of revival that is needed throughout the Muslim world. Allah azza wa jal is testing us, giving us an opportunity

00:25:31--> 00:26:18

all over the Muslim world now. Some are running, some are in need, some are in good conditions. And we can only pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala would have mercy upon the innocent, the weak people of the Muslim world, especially now in Afghanistan. May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for them is what is happening to the children and to the families in Afghanistan. May Allah subhanaw taala help the innocent and the weak in Philistine and those in East Turkistan, the Uighur people and the innocent Rohingya people. May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for them, give them a spacious place to live, help them to return to their homes. May Allah subhanaw taala open up Kashmir open up all of

00:26:18--> 00:26:31

the lands where Muslims are suffering now and bring us that type of leadership that is balanced and that truly follows the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu was

00:26:32--> 00:26:43
