00:01:05--> 00:01:11

And surely the best reward ultimately is for those who have the consciousness of Allah.

00:01:12--> 00:01:17

And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant in his last messenger.

00:01:19--> 00:01:44

May Allah constantly always 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 I begin by reminding myself again and you have the critical nature of taqwa, the consciousness of Allah, the understanding the feeling the reality

00:01:45--> 00:01:53

of the presence of the Creator of the heavens in the earth. And Allah has informed us and remind us in His mighty book,

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

Oh you who believe.

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

Fear Allah in the way he should be feared and do not die except in a state of Islam.

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

Oh, you who believe

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

that the times that we are living in

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

our unique ones.

00:02:13--> 00:02:17

We are witnessing the rise and fall of civilizations.

00:02:18--> 00:02:30

We are witnessing societies where people are living in peace and security and within days, they are in destruction and have become refugees.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

The news media

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

has not been honest with us.

00:02:38--> 00:02:47

It is biased according to who is making the news. It is a biased according to race to according to tribe

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

according to political understanding,

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

and it is critical for us.

00:02:55--> 00:02:59

For the believers in this important time

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

to return to our sources.

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

Allah azza wa jal has given us the code and given us the Sunnah. He has given us divine wisdom, divine guidance. And this divine guidance is not affected by race.

00:03:17--> 00:03:27

It is not affected by politics. It is not affected by human weakness and understanding. But it is from above seven heavens.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

And Allah subhanaw taala.

00:03:32--> 00:03:35

Knowing the past, present, and the future,

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

revealed the last book

00:03:40--> 00:03:45

revealed it in a way that it would be relevant to the believers.

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

And so what we are seeing today

00:03:50--> 00:03:54

is a shadow. It's a reflection of the past.

00:03:56--> 00:04:03

And the baseline knowledge that we need to establish is right in our hands.

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

And when we are feeling afraid, when we are feeling confused about the world, we need to turn to the book. Not only for Tila not just to read it, but that but that we think about what is in it we reflect upon what is in it, because Allah subhanaw taala at the end of Surah Yusuf, in giving this important information about Yusuf alayhi salam, following information about the prophets has revealed to us that God can have a casa see him Ebro Tony Hulan Al Bab Maracana Hadith and you've Tara well that can trustee can lead the bane of your day he were to see luckily che well who down rahmatan the comi minimum Allah has revealed in their stories. There is truly a lesson for people of

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

under

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

Standing.

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

It is not a message that was invented.

00:05:07--> 00:05:08

But a confirmation

00:05:09--> 00:05:18

of previous revelations, and a detailed explanation of all things, and a guide and a mercy

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

for those who believe.

00:05:22--> 00:05:30

And so within this book is a reflection for us. You feel confused, reflect upon what's in the book,

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

reflect upon

00:05:34--> 00:05:41

the guidance, which is a Merci, especially in difficult times, reflect on it

00:05:42--> 00:05:48

and use it as a baseline for your knowledge, then you can go to the mass media,

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

then you can go to the universities,

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

or you who believe the world right now is going through a catastrophe.

00:06:02--> 00:06:24

And a special organization, a special group of scholars, called the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, it's a UN body released a startling report, an overview of the Earth, an overview of the state of affairs of living things.

00:06:25--> 00:06:38

And what they have found, is that because of the heat, because of the climate change, and the catastrophe that is happening and back of it, it is reducing food production.

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

It is reducing fresh water. And these two issues are critical for human life.

00:06:47--> 00:07:11

The extreme heat has also caused plants and animals to migrate. We think about people making migration. But plants and animals are also migrating to the north, or to the deep South. To go to the higher levels in the oceans, the fish are going to deeper levels under the water

00:07:13--> 00:07:17

to get away from the catastrophe that is happening in front of them.

00:07:18--> 00:07:26

Many of the plants and animals cannot make hijra, they can't make the migration, and they die.

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

And this is extinction.

00:07:30--> 00:07:38

And we are looking at extinction at life all around us. And to add to this, the severe droughts,

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

the catastrophic floods,

00:07:43--> 00:07:54

the forest fires that are increasing over and over and over again, along with the catastrophic economic and political affairs

00:07:55--> 00:08:03

is bringing us to a climax. And Muslims are right in the middle of this. Because our countries

00:08:04--> 00:08:11

are to a great extent right in the center of the production, food production, mineral production of the world.

00:08:12--> 00:08:17

And so we are right in the middle of the catastrophe. And so now what is our baseline?

00:08:18--> 00:08:24

What would Allah subhanaw taala say about this world that we see? They're talking about World War Three?

00:08:25--> 00:08:51

What would Allah say about this? And Surah Ali Imran verse 140 Allah tells us he says come cartoon for cut masala coma cartoon myblu were tilcon I am a new darwino have been a nurse will ya allah My Allah Allah Athena I'm a new way attack ADA men come Shuhada wala Hola, you a Batali mean while you mighty Salah who led the man who were Yamaha called carefully.

00:08:52--> 00:08:57

Allah subhanaw taala has given us divine knowledge if we bought No.

00:08:58--> 00:09:08

Allah tells us such days of varying fortunes we give to people in turns.

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

That Allah may expose those who believe and take to himself from your ranks matter witnesses. But Allah does not love those who do wrong. Allah's object is to purify those who believe and destroy

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

the disbelievers.

00:09:33--> 00:09:40

The Arabs would say Yeoman laka, Yeoman, Alec, there is a day for you

00:09:41--> 00:09:46

and there will be a day against you. These are the days of Allah.

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

He gives power and authority to whom He pleases in turns.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

It will go from continent to continent, to religion to religion.

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

Allah gives it to people in turns. In the time of the Prophet SAW Salem,

00:10:07--> 00:10:15

the Roman Empire was a colossal Empire, the Persian Empire, a mighty power,

00:10:16--> 00:10:40

Al hubba Shah, the African Ethiopian empire. These are the most powerful nations on Earth, but they went up and they went down. And the Quran said, Holy battle Rome, right in the Quran, it says, Rome will be defeated. But after a few years, they will come back see the turns

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

as horrible feel

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

the Ethiopian armies huge, powerful force, but they were destroyed by little birds.

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

And so Allah gives it

00:10:58--> 00:11:04

in turns. And so when the time of the Prophet SAW Salem externally with the great pop internally

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

where the hypocrites internally within Medina was the yeah hood.

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

There was also the machete keen.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

This these were the forces on the inside.

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

And yes, it appeared like they were winning victories and remember what Allah said in the verse

00:11:27--> 00:11:45

wala hula you hit both dolly mean. Allah does not love the old presses. He does not love them. Yes, they gain power. Yes, they appear to have authority in the land. But Allah does not love the old presses. It is a process.

00:11:46--> 00:11:50

It is a process and in this process

00:11:51--> 00:12:01

is Tom haste that Allah will purify the believers and Tom he's also means to put to the test.

00:12:02--> 00:12:23

To rectify to purify our nation's and to take from amongst us Shaheed take Mata witnesses. Our nation's are ruled by a strange hodgepodge of tyrants. buffoons, hypocrites.

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

Normally in a few cases we see some aspect of Islam.

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

But this is the test.

00:12:32--> 00:12:37

And Allah will test us and test us and purify us

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

until we wake up to the reality

00:12:42--> 00:13:00

and when that happens, as Allah said, when Yamaha called caffine, he will destroy the disbelievers they will be annihilated. This word for Maha it is a big word. It's a powerful word. It means they will be obliterated

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

and annihilate it.

00:13:04--> 00:13:07

And that is the case of this world with the nuclear weapons.

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

So realize Yeoman lekawa, Yeoman alake. Now we feel it is on top of us.

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

But there is hope. And the whole begins within our self. The ball is in our court.

00:13:25--> 00:13:39

Allah told us clearly in Nevada, you Hey, you don't want to be Coleman, Hatha Yoga, you do Mabi, unfussy him, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themself.

00:13:41--> 00:13:48

So instead of looking outside, we need to first look inside. Don't worry about the world.

00:13:49--> 00:13:58

Don't get confused, don't lose sleep. Because this is what happens with telecoil I am new darwino have been a nurse.

00:13:59--> 00:14:19

These are the days we will give it to them in turns. But Allah wants to expose to put us to the test to see whether we will make the change and so all of us starting from individual self. We need to look into ourselves as we have come out of the heights of Ramadan

00:14:20--> 00:14:30

out of the heights of the Eid back into the year. Can we continue the pace? Were we just temporary Muslims? Did we really believe in the book?

00:14:32--> 00:14:39

Did we strive as the Prophet SAW Selim strove in his life? Jah Davila, he haka jihadi

00:14:42--> 00:14:58

he strove in the best possible way until death came to him. That is the test on the believers today. And so we start within ourselves. We start with our individual life, with our families with our communities.

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

And it moves on and gets greater and greater the caffeine on

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

the haters of the truth, they will do what they have to do.

00:15:10--> 00:15:18

And we are surrounded by them, while hamdulillah which will make our reward greater to hang on to the truth.

00:15:19--> 00:15:30

Do not think that if you appear as a Muslim, if a sister is in her hijab, if a brother is appearing like a Muslim making his Salaat standing up for Islam, that's not a little thing.

00:15:32--> 00:16:01

That's an important thing, especially for the children, the children have to see our generation strong and bend it not broken. They have to see us with this, because they have to take it on into these days, which are getting more and more confusion. And they have to see that the ultimate answer the bass line of knowledge has been given to us in our heads.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

And so we can only pray that Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:07--> 00:16:39

would give us that ability to turn to his book, in times of difficulty. We can only pray that Allah subhanaw taala would put light into the hearts of our younger generation in this time of darkness. We can only pray that Allah subhanaw taala would have mercy and ease the pain on the Muslims who are suffering right now in the Muslim world. May Allah give them not only ease but strength. May Allah raise up amongst them those who will stand for the truth

00:16:40--> 00:17:05

and will make a red line that will not be crossed. And may Allah subhanaw taala give us as our last words our best words, that our last words would be Kelly Mala ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Akula polyhedra wa iStockphoto Ali welcome while he sadly Muslimeen him in Coulee Dam been established hero in the who hold a photo Rahim?
