00:06:36--> 00:06:39

How praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds?

00:06:41--> 00:06:46

Can I be a witness? That Allah is the friend and protector of the righteous.

00:06:47--> 00:07:08

And I be a witness that Muhammad is His servant, his last messenger. May Allah constantly always send peace and blessings to Mohammed to his family to his companions, and all those who call to his way and establish his sunnah, the day of judgment

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

as to what follows I begin by reminding myself

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

of the critical importance of the consciousness of Allah,

00:07:19--> 00:07:23

that we should be aware of Allah in all that we do.

00:07:24--> 00:07:32

Whether we are in the masjid, on special occasions, or an everyday life,

00:07:33--> 00:07:43

we should never forget that there is one who is Almighty in knowledge and strength, and is aware of all things.

00:07:44--> 00:08:22

And Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us in His mighty book, or you who believe, have the consciousness of Allah and let every soul look to what it put forward for tomorrow, and fear Allah. Surely Allah is well aware of all that you do. And be not as those who forgot Allah. And so he made them forget themselves. Surely, they are the disobedient ones. And so Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us in this divine revelation,

00:08:24--> 00:08:41

critical information, light that we can use in the time of darkness. And we are living, no doubt, in a time of confusion, uncertainty.

00:08:42--> 00:08:48

And the greatest blessing that we have as Muslims is our faith.

00:08:49--> 00:08:53

It is to be able to hold on to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:54--> 00:09:01

To be able to have that guidance that will be with us, no matter what is happening in the world.

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

Oh, you who believe

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

we are witnessing in the world

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

a great struggle.

00:09:11--> 00:09:24

There is a struggle of light and darkness, truth and falsehood. There is a physical struggle going on in the world. But there is also a hidden battle of the hearts.

00:09:25--> 00:09:34

And this battle for the hearts may be the most crucial aspect of the war against Islam.

00:09:36--> 00:09:43

And so as Muslims in these times, we need to take the words of ALLAH very seriously.

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

And Allah has revealed to us in search of Bopara yeah as you have Latina Ahmad colo facility Kapha while at a taboo for Tata shaytaan in a hula coma do When Ruby. Allah has revealed Oh you who believe

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

Leave, enter into Islam wholeheartedly,

00:10:05--> 00:10:10

completely, and do not follow the footsteps of the evil one.

00:10:11--> 00:10:16

Four he is to you, and open enemies.

00:10:19--> 00:10:24

Allah told us enter into Islam Kapha

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

completely all aspects of our life.

00:10:29--> 00:10:42

And so that does means not only just when Ramadan comes, we enter into Islam completely, we fast. We have soccer we have if top we have him sack, outside of Ramadan,

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

in our business,

00:10:46--> 00:10:51

at school, with our friends in society,

00:10:52--> 00:10:56

we need to now tighten up our faith.

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

We need to tighten up our belief so that all aspects of our life under the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:11:08--> 00:11:29

And the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him, warned us that a time would come when it would not only be the major issues, but there would be other things that would be affecting us silently, quietly. In the Arafat sermon,

00:11:30--> 00:11:35

the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him in his last in the last Hajj.

00:11:36--> 00:11:58

The prophet is reported to have said, Oh people, Beware of satan, for the safety of your religion, he has lost all hope that he will be able to lead you astray in big things. So be aware of him in small things. This is a deep message

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

he has given up is not going to stop our kalimba

00:12:06--> 00:12:13

is not going to destroy our Kaaba but in the small things that we do.

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

We need to be aware

00:12:18--> 00:12:24

in certain Baqarah Allah subhanaw taala in describing this evil plan

00:12:25--> 00:12:36

of the shaytaan tells us our Buddha bIllahi min ash shaytani regime in nama moto Combi su e well fascia well I'm Taku Allah Allah Hema Allah Tada

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

Verily the evil one insights you

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

with

00:12:45--> 00:13:08

evil things with him morality, and to say about Allah, that which you know, not three categories yet divinely given to us, so that we could protect ourselves in these times. Assume that evil and Sue is also described

00:13:09--> 00:13:15

as being when it is attached to other words, it has a lot of meaning to it. So a done

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

if you say, suspicion,

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

sewers follow

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

if you have bad character.

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

So this evil this badness can affect us in many ways. And that is one of the traps that is coming to us today in so many ways, fascia in morality.

00:13:40--> 00:13:57

But it but fascia can also mean atrocities, crimes. And so the evil one is inciting us commanding us to commit atrocities, to be involved in crime.

00:13:58--> 00:14:02

And this is so important in the battle for the hearts.

00:14:03--> 00:14:16

And we as the community, who have many of us who have come to these lands, from other parts of the world, we feel that when you are in a country, you need to be like the people in the country.

00:14:18--> 00:14:28

And no doubt about it. We have come to a country like Canada, and we need to enforce within ourself, justice and peace

00:14:29--> 00:14:34

and to deal with people in a reasonable way in our society.

00:14:35--> 00:14:43

But that does not mean like the ancient proverb, when in Rome, do like the Romans do.

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

It does not mean that if there are issues which are against our way of life, which are destructive to our being and destructive to society, then we need to oppose them above

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

Till falsehood.

00:15:04--> 00:15:32

And even Christian leaders at this time of year because we are in a confusing time of year, the sights and symbols now coming around us. In the winter solstice, we are in the darkest point of the year, the coldest time of the year. And so there are symbols coming at us science coming at us. People want joy, people want happiness. People want the sun to come back.

00:15:33--> 00:16:12

But the Christian leaders have said, when we tell our children lies about the existence of fantasies, like Santa Claus, we introduce them to the sin of deception. There's a Christian talk. We introduced the children to deception that they begin to believe in things which are not real and that opens up the door to deception in their whole life. And the Prophet SAW Salem was reported to have said in the bank baina yet ASR cat DelBene Fado.

00:16:15--> 00:16:47

That in the coming of the last hour, they will be great liars, beware of them, a god in front of them. And so these confusing signs that we are in, they are telling us it is the last month of the solar year. So they say we're ending the year and we're beginning the year in January. But when you look at the number, Octo means eight October

00:16:48--> 00:17:00

and Novem means nine in Latin November. And December means 10 in Latin December, December is the 10th month

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

of the Luna year

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

bottle falsehood.

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

Because the real New Year in the solar calendar is in March.

00:17:13--> 00:17:25

Because that is when the spring comes. And according to people who follow the cycles of the weather and nature. New life is coming in March, not in December.

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

And so deception is

00:17:32--> 00:17:37

they tell us that Jesus that he saw a Salam was born on December 25.

00:17:38--> 00:17:49

But when we study the Scriptures, when we read Christian theologians, they recognize along with us that he was born in the warm weather

00:17:50--> 00:18:00

and married Maria may Allah be pleased with her was told to shake the date palms, right dates will come to you. The right dates come at the end of the summer,

00:18:02--> 00:18:13

beginning of the fall, and the Christians also if you check them out closely, they know he wasn't born in this time.

00:18:14--> 00:18:27

The deception continues. Who Was Jesus is a alayhis salam for us is one of the most important prophets of those 124,000.

00:18:29--> 00:18:31

A mighty messenger of Allah,

00:18:32--> 00:18:42

a human being mentioned 25 times in the Quran. As isa mentioned 11 times in the Quran as lmsc

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

mentioned 23 times in the Quran as Eben Mariya

00:18:48--> 00:19:05

but Allah subhanaw taala revealed and saw le Imran at least 83 verses to clear up the MIS understanding with what they did with isa les Salaam and what they did to his name 83 verses

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

in this mighty chapter.

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

And so we recognize that is Allah He Salam was a human being. And Allah azza wa jal revealed to us in his core en BOL, merci Hebron Mariama Inada Sulan called Hala min Kubla he Rousseau were OMO who said de cana cola me Tom Oando. Okay, if I knew Beijing, Allahumma Ayat through Mundo ANOVA.

00:19:40--> 00:19:49

Allah revealed to us that he saw that Jesus was nothing more than messenger.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Many messengers had come and gone before you. His mother was a woman of truth. They both

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

used to eat food.

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

See how we make the science clear to them? Yet how they are deluded from the truth. They are deluded from the truth. They will live in a deception. That's what Allah said. He said, Can I collect data? They ate food.

00:20:21--> 00:20:32

And so by eating food, that means you're hungry. You are a human being, how can you say you are the God or the son of God? Well, he has a

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

look how they strayed away from the truth.

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

The disciples, Hawaii, Hawaii,

00:20:42--> 00:20:50

the followers of Isa alayhis, salam, and Nosara, the Nazarenes, the Jews of Nazareth,

00:20:51--> 00:21:00

after Jesus was raised, and we believe he was not killed, they held on to the truth in the best way they possibly could.

00:21:01--> 00:21:05

But they were struggling against a tidal wave,

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

a tidal wave of paganism.

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

And when we say pagan, we meet with a ninja

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

Mushrikeen the belief in Trinity,

00:21:20--> 00:21:35

the belief in the many gods of the Greeks and the Romans. And as the message spread, with the introduction of weakness with Paul, who opened up the door to Buddha, or innovation in their religion,

00:21:36--> 00:21:51

of their beliefs crept into Christianity. And people say, Well, who was born on December 25, then, if it wasn't Jesus, there are many names. But the strongest, historically, is the name of Mithras.

00:21:52--> 00:21:59

And Mithras, was part of a Persian cult that spread into Rome,

00:22:01--> 00:22:18

and all over the Mediterranean reason. And they used to believe that he was born of a virgin birth, on December 25. He sacrificed himself for humanity. He was crucified and buried in a tomb.

00:22:19--> 00:22:35

He was resurrected. Now think about this. This is before the time of Jesus. That was their belief. His holy day was the seventh date, not the Sabbath. It was Sunday.

00:22:37--> 00:22:44

And so this concept, this cult, then entered into Christianity.

00:22:47--> 00:23:09

The rituals of the Saturnalia, which is held around this time, it's the winter solstice. For Saturn, they want the sun to return. And so they used to have drunken orgies and festivals, and commit all types of immorality. Remember, the struggle in morality, Sue Well, fascia,

00:23:11--> 00:23:22

evil immorality, and it continued in up to the north, the Feast of the 12 knights, the Germanic feasts, the druids of the North.

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

And so they began to carry on with their festivals. And so what we know as Christmas we see now was a Roman intervention to mix the teachings of Jesus with was a ninja with paganism.

00:23:41--> 00:24:06

And so the trees, the mistletoe, the Yule Log, the giving presence, hanging stockings, Santa Claus, who was nothing like St. Nicholas. The original St. Nicholas was a very thin, austere man who lived in Turkey in Asia Minor he used to give to children, nothing to do with St. Nicholas.

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

It was confused and then put together

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

to the point where up by 1647 the Christian church in the UK banned Christmas, they would not allow it to be celebrated up until reaching America for 150 years in America, Christmas was not celebrated.

00:24:30--> 00:24:36

And it is only the materialism when materialism took back over.

00:24:37--> 00:24:55

And this is what we see today in the place of the teachings of Isa lay salaam, who was a humble person who did not wear shoes most of the time, who believed in the spiritual aspects of faith. It has been superseded by a pagan ritual.

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

And we say what is wrong with this?

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

It is wrong

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

as even the Christian said, if you allow your children to believe in a fantasy, then you're opening up the door of deception.

00:25:11--> 00:25:16

They will believe that the presence that have been given to them is not their parents.

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

It's somebody who came down the chimney

00:25:21--> 00:25:24

and the chimneys of millions of people around the fantasy.

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

And so for believers for Muslims

00:25:29--> 00:25:36

be aware of this as a Prophet sallallahu sallam said, they would be great liars near the end of time factor on

00:25:37--> 00:26:02

this beware of them. And the Prophet SAW Selim said very clearly in the liquidly, OMA fitna, were fitna to Almighty Allah have, every nation has a trial and a test. And the trial and test of this nation is wealth. And so they are playing with the minds of people with their wealth going out in the midst of a pandemic.

00:26:04--> 00:26:17

And the person said on the newscast today, he was asked, Why are you out now? Why are you going to to the crowds? Why are you risking this with the Omicron moving around? He said it's Christmas.

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

A delusion that he isn't.

00:26:22--> 00:26:34

And Allah subhanaw taala has given us the beautiful story of Isa laze around. He has given us the N T deluded into clear truth.

00:26:35--> 00:27:03

May Allah azza wa jal help us to hold on to this truth and to protect our younger children our generations from the lies and deceptions and may Allah subhanaw taala clear up these deceptions in the general population and guide the people of this society to the last revelation aku Kali howdah Rostock Fulani welcome what he saw at most of the medium and Columbian Estelle Pharaoh and Nahu Hoover photo right.
