00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

will begin in July 2nd and end on

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

August 16th.

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

Registration is still open,

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

and there are 2 categories for for this

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

year's summer camp. As has been a tradition,

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

there is a leadership camp, as well as

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

a regular summer day camp for those who

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

age,

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

5 to 12 years old.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:33

We also have a IIT Summerfest on July

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

27th.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

We are inviting vendors if you're interested

00:01:36 --> 00:01:37

to participate

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39

on July 27th.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

The IIT also have a food barrel,

00:01:42 --> 00:01:45

and the dry goods that we collect on

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

a daily basis,

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

is sent towards the Muslim welfare center.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

I also want to let you know that

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

tomorrow, Insha Allah, there is a rally downtown,

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

and there will be buses leaving here,

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

from the Islamic Institute of Toronto.

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

Finally, there are many brothers and sisters who

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

are returning from Hajj. We welcome them back

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

to,

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

Toronto and to their homes, and that's all

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

to accept their Hajj. And we know that

00:02:10 --> 00:02:13

this year, 100 of pilgrims also passed away

00:02:13 --> 00:02:15

as a result of the heat wave. We

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

ask Allah to accept their Hajj

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

and to rise him, rise them from among

00:02:19 --> 00:02:22

the righteous. Zakum of Akar or Khatib today

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

is doctor Sheik Abdullah Hakim Quick.

00:06:01 --> 00:06:03

All praise are due to Allah, Lord of

00:06:03 --> 00:06:04

the worlds.

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

And surely, the best reward

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

ultimately

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

is for those

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

who have taqwa.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:14

And surely, there is no animosity

00:06:15 --> 00:06:17

except for the oppressor.

00:06:18 --> 00:06:20

And I be a witness that Allah is

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

1 and has no partners.

00:06:22 --> 00:06:24

That Mohammed, the son of Abdullah,

00:06:26 --> 00:06:27

is his servant,

00:06:27 --> 00:06:28

his last messenger.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

May Allah always constantly

00:06:31 --> 00:06:34

send peace and blessings to Muhammad,

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

to his family, to his companions,

00:06:37 --> 00:06:39

and to all those who called to his

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

way

00:06:40 --> 00:06:42

and establish his sunnah

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

to the day of judgment.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:47

As to what follows, I remind myself

00:06:47 --> 00:06:48

and you

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

of the overriding

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

importance of taqwa law.

00:06:53 --> 00:06:56

That the consciousness of Allah

00:06:56 --> 00:06:58

has to be in front of us

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

every time we move.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:03

And it is this consciousness

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

that will give us

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

that understanding

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

to make the right decisions

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

at the right time.

00:07:12 --> 00:07:15

And Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has revealed,

00:07:16 --> 00:07:18

in his mighty book, oh, you who believe

00:07:19 --> 00:07:20

And whoever

00:07:21 --> 00:07:23

is conscious of Allah,

00:07:24 --> 00:07:25

Allah will make

00:07:25 --> 00:07:27

a way out for him

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

and provide for him

00:07:30 --> 00:07:31

from where he knows not.

00:07:32 --> 00:07:35

And whoever depends upon Allah,

00:07:35 --> 00:07:37

Allah will be sufficient.

00:07:38 --> 00:07:41

Surely, Allah will reach his purpose,

00:07:43 --> 00:07:44

and he has

00:07:45 --> 00:07:46

made

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

a limit

00:07:48 --> 00:07:49

to all things.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

Oh, you who believe,

00:07:54 --> 00:07:57

as we come to the end of this

00:07:57 --> 00:07:58

lunar year,

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

this Islamic year,

00:08:01 --> 00:08:03

many things in the world have changed.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:06

And as we move toward the day of

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

resurrection,

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

we will see drastic changes happening.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:14

The world will not seem

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

like the same place.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:20

And so we need to constantly have the

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

greater picture of things,

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

be constantly in touch with revelation,

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

The only truth that there is in this

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

world.

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

In this world of deception,

00:08:33 --> 00:08:35

it is the book of Allah,

00:08:35 --> 00:08:37

It is the words of the prophet sallallahu

00:08:37 --> 00:08:38

alaihi wa sallam

00:08:38 --> 00:08:40

that can guide us

00:08:40 --> 00:08:41

through the confusion

00:08:42 --> 00:08:44

that we find in this world.

00:08:45 --> 00:08:46

Allah told us

00:08:47 --> 00:08:50

in Surat Al Talak, as we have just

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

read,

00:08:51 --> 00:08:54

that it is taqwa, it is tawako,

00:08:55 --> 00:08:57

consciousness of Allah, dependence upon Allah

00:08:59 --> 00:09:01

that will guide us through this confusion that

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

we are living in.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

Allah also told us

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

Allah will reach

00:09:11 --> 00:09:12

his purpose.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:17

Whatever we see happening in the world today

00:09:18 --> 00:09:19

is not by chance.

00:09:20 --> 00:09:22

There is a purpose for this,

00:09:23 --> 00:09:24

and some people

00:09:25 --> 00:09:26

will be,

00:09:27 --> 00:09:28

blessed by Allah.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:31

Their way out

00:09:32 --> 00:09:35

will not be an earthly way out,

00:09:36 --> 00:09:38

their way out will be to enter paradise,

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

to leave this world of confusion.

00:09:43 --> 00:09:46

But Allah tells us in this divine formula

00:09:47 --> 00:09:48

that he has

00:09:49 --> 00:09:49

created,

00:09:50 --> 00:09:51

he has developed,

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

he has made a limit

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

for everything.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:58

There is a limit

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

to murder.

00:10:02 --> 00:10:04

And as we look at what is happening

00:10:04 --> 00:10:05

in Philistine,

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

as the prime example now

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

in the world

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

of the forces of evil,

00:10:13 --> 00:10:16

realize, remember that Allah told us,

00:10:20 --> 00:10:22

there is a limit to torture.

00:10:24 --> 00:10:26

There is a limit to starvation.

00:10:27 --> 00:10:30

There's a limit to the killing of children.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:33

There's a limit to forced

00:10:34 --> 00:10:34

displacement,

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

to genocide,

00:10:39 --> 00:10:40

to extermination.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:45

All you who believe,

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

we are living in

00:10:50 --> 00:10:51

strange times,

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

and it will it will get stranger and

00:10:54 --> 00:10:55

stranger

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

as we move toward

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

the day of judgment.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

Who would ever imagine

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

that the Muslim world

00:11:04 --> 00:11:05

would be over 2,000,000,000

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

strong,

00:11:08 --> 00:11:09

yet feel

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

a type of helplessness.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:15

Who would ever

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

believe

00:11:18 --> 00:11:19

that over 50%

00:11:19 --> 00:11:22

of the mineral wealth of this world,

00:11:22 --> 00:11:24

especially the rare,

00:11:24 --> 00:11:25

exotic

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

wealth

00:11:27 --> 00:11:28

lies under

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

Muslim lands,

00:11:31 --> 00:11:34

yet there are people in our Ummah who

00:11:34 --> 00:11:35

are starving to death.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:38

In Afghanistan,

00:11:40 --> 00:11:43

coming out of the terrible struggle, the terrible

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

bombing and killing

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

that has happened in that land. It has

00:11:47 --> 00:11:49

now come to the surface,

00:11:50 --> 00:11:52

to the eyes of the world

00:11:52 --> 00:11:55

that is changing from fossil fuels,

00:11:56 --> 00:11:59

changing their vehicles and their means of

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

production into another form,

00:12:03 --> 00:12:04

battery faced,

00:12:05 --> 00:12:07

based form that the 2nd largest

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

lithium

00:12:09 --> 00:12:10

deposit,

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

which is the main mineral

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

for your electronic cars and your future, the

00:12:15 --> 00:12:18

2nd largest deposit is in Afghanistan.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:22

And right now,

00:12:22 --> 00:12:24

it is changing. Things are changing for the

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

people.

00:12:27 --> 00:12:29

Our children, our youth

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

are growing and growing all over the world

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

and this generation

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

is not like the previous generation.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:42

This generation is not gonna tolerate

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

what some of their parents tolerated.

00:12:47 --> 00:12:50

So our potential is there. We are right

00:12:50 --> 00:12:50

at

00:12:51 --> 00:12:53

the door. We are like a beautiful vehicle.

00:12:54 --> 00:12:55

At the

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

beginning of the race.

00:12:58 --> 00:13:01

Everybody believes that vehicle will win the race.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:05

It has all everything that is necessary but

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

something inside of it.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:09

Something has to spark it

00:13:11 --> 00:13:13

in order for that vehicle

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

to take the lead.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:17

And Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala told us,

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

Allah told us very clearly as we come

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

to the end of this year

00:13:22 --> 00:13:25

and we review some of the lessons that

00:13:25 --> 00:13:27

Allah gave us, that we discussed in this

00:13:27 --> 00:13:28

year,

00:13:28 --> 00:13:31

and we saw come to pass. Allah told

00:13:31 --> 00:13:32

us in Surat Al Hasha,

00:13:51 --> 00:13:53

Allah told us, oh you who believe, have

00:13:53 --> 00:13:56

the consciousness of Allah and let every soul

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

look to what it put forward for tomorrow

00:14:01 --> 00:14:02

and fear Allah.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:06

Surely, Allah is well aware of all that

00:14:06 --> 00:14:07

you do.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:10

And be not as those who forgot Allah,

00:14:10 --> 00:14:12

and so he made them forget

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

themselves.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:17

Surely, they are the disobedient ones.

00:14:19 --> 00:14:20

And so Allah

00:14:22 --> 00:14:23

gives us

00:14:24 --> 00:14:26

guidance and warning.

00:14:33 --> 00:14:35

Do not be like those who forgot Allah.

00:14:37 --> 00:14:38

He'll make them forget themselves.

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

And if they forget themselves,

00:14:42 --> 00:14:43

then their armies

00:14:44 --> 00:14:45

will not liberate

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

the oppressed people.

00:14:50 --> 00:14:51

If they forget themselves,

00:14:53 --> 00:14:54

then their wealth

00:14:54 --> 00:14:57

will be spent upon building large buildings

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

and organizing

00:15:00 --> 00:15:01

Western concerts

00:15:03 --> 00:15:05

and opening up liquor stores,

00:15:07 --> 00:15:09

going away from the religion,

00:15:09 --> 00:15:11

this is the state of forgetfulness.

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

But if we remember Allah, if we remember

00:15:17 --> 00:15:18

where we are going,

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

and this year should have been a wake

00:15:21 --> 00:15:23

up call for people

00:15:24 --> 00:15:28

because it changed. Everything changed. When October 7th

00:15:28 --> 00:15:30

happened, everything changed.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:34

And that is a condition that we're going

00:15:34 --> 00:15:36

into as we go toward the day of

00:15:36 --> 00:15:39

resurrection. So it is critical to have the

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

greater picture of things as we move toward

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

the end.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:48

Abu Zayd Amaib Al Aktab

00:15:48 --> 00:15:49

radiAllahuwan

00:15:49 --> 00:15:50

said,

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

the messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:15:54 --> 00:15:55

led Fajr prayer

00:15:56 --> 00:15:58

and then he ascended on the mimbar

00:15:59 --> 00:16:01

and he addressed us

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

until the time of Salat Zuzha.

00:16:05 --> 00:16:07

Think about this.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:09

He went up on the mimbar

00:16:10 --> 00:16:12

and he continued to talk to the companions

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

all the way until Salat Zodoha, then he

00:16:15 --> 00:16:17

came down and prayed, and he ascended the

00:16:17 --> 00:16:20

mimba, and he continued to address us until

00:16:20 --> 00:16:22

the time of Asa.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:25

And then

00:16:26 --> 00:16:26

he continued,

00:16:27 --> 00:16:30

he ascended the member and addressed us until

00:16:30 --> 00:16:30

the sunset.

00:16:31 --> 00:16:32

He told us

00:16:33 --> 00:16:35

what was to come.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:39

And the most learned amongst us

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

was the one who memorized the most.

00:16:46 --> 00:16:49

The one who memorized what he said

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

was the most learned person.

00:16:52 --> 00:16:55

Imagine the companions of the prophet, sasai, nobody

00:16:55 --> 00:16:55

moved

00:16:57 --> 00:17:00

because of the severity of what is gonna

00:17:00 --> 00:17:00

happen,

00:17:01 --> 00:17:03

because of the clarity.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:05

And we,

00:17:05 --> 00:17:08

who are now closer, over 1400

00:17:08 --> 00:17:09

years closer

00:17:10 --> 00:17:11

to the day of resurrection,

00:17:13 --> 00:17:15

can look at some of these words of

00:17:15 --> 00:17:16

the prophet, salaw al salawam,

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

and the more we go over this, the

00:17:19 --> 00:17:20

more we come closer

00:17:20 --> 00:17:22

it is, the clearer it becomes.

00:17:24 --> 00:17:25

One of these great companions

00:17:26 --> 00:17:28

who had some of the most critical

00:17:29 --> 00:17:30

points of information

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

to us today,

00:17:33 --> 00:17:34

His name was

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

Hudayfa ibn al Yamani

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

radiallahu.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:41

He was the keeper of the secrets.

00:17:42 --> 00:17:43

The prophet

00:17:43 --> 00:17:46

even told him the name of the munafiqun,

00:17:47 --> 00:17:48

the hypocrites,

00:17:50 --> 00:17:51

And Hudayfa released

00:17:52 --> 00:17:52

information.

00:17:53 --> 00:17:55

He released information

00:17:56 --> 00:17:58

which was not like

00:17:58 --> 00:17:59

other companions.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:02

He had this

00:18:03 --> 00:18:03

ability

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

to question what would happen.

00:18:07 --> 00:18:09

He had this permission

00:18:10 --> 00:18:11

from the prophet, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam,

00:18:12 --> 00:18:13

to ask questions,

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

and he gave us some of this information

00:18:17 --> 00:18:20

that we have in our midst today.

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

And

00:18:23 --> 00:18:25

today for Radhi Allahuwan,

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

he reports,

00:18:42 --> 00:18:43

Tell me about Jannah.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:46

Tell me about

00:18:46 --> 00:18:47

the beauties.

00:18:48 --> 00:18:50

But I used to ask them about

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

evil things

00:18:52 --> 00:18:55

so that I would not fall into it.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:56

This is the mentality.

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

He continues.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:20

Who they for continues, he said. I asked,

00:19:20 --> 00:19:23

oh, messenger of Allah, we were living

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

in ignorance

00:19:25 --> 00:19:26

and evil.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:29

Then Allah brought this good to us. Will

00:19:29 --> 00:19:32

there be any good after,

00:19:33 --> 00:19:35

will be will will there be any evil

00:19:35 --> 00:19:38

after this good? He said he replied, yes.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

There will be good will come,

00:19:41 --> 00:19:43

but there will be it will be tainted.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:48

It will be tainted. Something wrong with it.

00:19:49 --> 00:19:52

And then Hudayfah continued and he said,

00:20:03 --> 00:20:04

So I asked,

00:20:05 --> 00:20:07

what will be its taint?

00:20:08 --> 00:20:09

It's gonna be Muslim leaders

00:20:11 --> 00:20:13

doing good, but there's something

00:20:14 --> 00:20:15

wrong with it.

00:20:16 --> 00:20:19

There's something stained in it. And the prophet

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

said,

00:20:20 --> 00:20:22

a people who guide others

00:20:22 --> 00:20:24

to other than my sunnah.

00:20:25 --> 00:20:28

You will approve some of their deeds

00:20:29 --> 00:20:31

and disapprove of others.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:33

For most people,

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

that would be the end of the discussion.

00:20:36 --> 00:20:37

Not Hudayfa.

00:20:37 --> 00:20:38

Hudayfa continued.

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

Continues.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:03

I further asked,

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

then there will then there will be will

00:21:07 --> 00:21:10

there be any evil after the good?

00:21:12 --> 00:21:14

And the prophet answered, yes.

00:21:19 --> 00:21:22

Call us at the gates of *.

00:21:23 --> 00:21:25

Whoever responds to their call,

00:21:26 --> 00:21:28

they will throw him into the fire.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:31

I then said, oh messenger of Allah,

00:21:32 --> 00:21:33

describe them to us.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:37

He said, they will come from our people,

00:21:38 --> 00:21:40

and they will speak our language.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:42

Look at

00:21:43 --> 00:21:43

this.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:45

They'll look like us,

00:21:46 --> 00:21:48

have the same skin,

00:21:48 --> 00:21:50

the same clothing, language,

00:21:51 --> 00:21:53

But if you answer their call, they'll throw

00:21:53 --> 00:21:54

you into *.

00:21:59 --> 00:22:00

Was not finished.

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

Allah tells him

00:22:10 --> 00:22:12

I asked, oh messenger of Allah,

00:22:12 --> 00:22:15

what do you advise me to do if

00:22:15 --> 00:22:17

I've come in that type of situation?

00:22:18 --> 00:22:19

And the prophet

00:22:19 --> 00:22:21

said, stick

00:22:21 --> 00:22:23

to the Jamaat of the Muslims.

00:22:24 --> 00:22:25

Stick to the

00:22:25 --> 00:22:27

united body of the believers

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

and their imam.

00:22:31 --> 00:22:32

Hudayfa continued.

00:22:48 --> 00:22:49

Hodeifa then said,

00:22:52 --> 00:22:53

what if

00:22:53 --> 00:22:56

the Jama'at of the the the Muslims,

00:22:56 --> 00:22:58

main body of Muslims,

00:22:59 --> 00:23:02

what if they have neither a united body,

00:23:03 --> 00:23:05

and they don't have an imam?

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

He

00:23:08 --> 00:23:10

replied, then keep away from all of those

00:23:10 --> 00:23:11

groups

00:23:11 --> 00:23:13

even if you have to bite onto the

00:23:13 --> 00:23:14

roots

00:23:14 --> 00:23:15

of a tree

00:23:16 --> 00:23:17

until death

00:23:17 --> 00:23:19

reaches you in that state.

00:23:20 --> 00:23:21

And so the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

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

was telling him,

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

he gave a complete answer.

00:23:26 --> 00:23:28

Even if you see confusion,

00:23:29 --> 00:23:31

bite onto the roots of a tree. This

00:23:31 --> 00:23:35

means not just literally biting onto a tree.

00:23:36 --> 00:23:38

Hold onto the roots of your faith.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:41

Hold on to what you have

00:23:43 --> 00:23:45

until Allah takes your life.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:48

And so

00:23:49 --> 00:23:50

we need

00:23:51 --> 00:23:53

to hold on to our faith.

00:23:54 --> 00:23:55

No matter what we see,

00:23:57 --> 00:23:58

no matter what they report,

00:23:59 --> 00:24:01

hold the line.

00:24:02 --> 00:24:05

We need to hold on to our modesty

00:24:06 --> 00:24:09

because there is somebody trying to take off

00:24:09 --> 00:24:10

our clothes,

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

to take away our haya,

00:24:14 --> 00:24:15

our modesty.

00:24:15 --> 00:24:17

Hold on to our salat.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:22

Continue with it. No matter what happens,

00:24:22 --> 00:24:23

hold onto it.

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

Hold onto halal living,

00:24:26 --> 00:24:27

halal food, halal

00:24:28 --> 00:24:29

even entertainment.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:34

Hold onto reading the Quran. Hold onto the

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

deen,

00:24:35 --> 00:24:35

our fasting.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:37

Allah gave us

00:24:37 --> 00:24:40

a beautiful way of life. There is somebody

00:24:40 --> 00:24:43

now who is trying to take it away

00:24:43 --> 00:24:43

from us

00:24:45 --> 00:24:47

because this is the difference between us and

00:24:47 --> 00:24:47

them.

00:24:49 --> 00:24:50

Hold on.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:52

Never forget

00:24:53 --> 00:24:53

the suffering

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

of our people in Philistine and in Gaza

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

and in Sudan and Kashmir

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

and all the places

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

where Muslims are suffering.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

Hold on to this.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:06

Don't be distracted.

00:25:08 --> 00:25:09

Younger generation,

00:25:09 --> 00:25:11

they want to distract you.

00:25:12 --> 00:25:14

They want to put you in cyberspace

00:25:15 --> 00:25:17

to get you lost on a video game.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:20

So you won't deal with the reality which

00:25:20 --> 00:25:23

is surrounding our people and surrounding the world

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

that we are living in.

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

And never forget,

00:25:28 --> 00:25:30

as dark as the day seems,

00:25:32 --> 00:25:34

Our potential is there,

00:25:35 --> 00:25:37

and it has always been with us

00:25:37 --> 00:25:39

from the time of the companions

00:25:40 --> 00:25:41

when the Mongols

00:25:42 --> 00:25:42

destroyed

00:25:42 --> 00:25:44

millions of people,

00:25:44 --> 00:25:45

when the Crusaders

00:25:46 --> 00:25:46

came,

00:25:47 --> 00:25:49

when the colonial forces came,

00:25:50 --> 00:25:51

we held the line.

00:25:53 --> 00:25:54

We didn't back down.

00:25:55 --> 00:25:56

So never forget

00:25:58 --> 00:25:59

that the prophet, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, has

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

said

00:26:12 --> 00:26:13

The prophet said

00:26:14 --> 00:26:15

a section,

00:26:16 --> 00:26:18

a group of my Ummah

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

will remain

00:26:20 --> 00:26:21

victorious,

00:26:23 --> 00:26:25

unaffected by the falling away of others

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

until Allah,

00:26:27 --> 00:26:29

may he be praised and glorified,

00:26:30 --> 00:26:32

has issued his commandment

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

for the movement of history.

00:26:40 --> 00:26:42

Allah will reach his purpose

00:26:42 --> 00:26:44

and we are all under a test.

00:26:44 --> 00:26:47

Hold the line. Continue struggling.

00:26:47 --> 00:26:49

Continue making dua.

00:26:49 --> 00:26:50

Continue your boycott.

00:26:51 --> 00:26:52

Continue your activities.

00:26:53 --> 00:26:54

Don't be distracted

00:26:55 --> 00:26:56

because that is the way of the evil

00:26:56 --> 00:26:59

one And Allah has given us the potential

00:26:59 --> 00:27:00

now

00:27:00 --> 00:27:02

to become the most powerful nation

00:27:03 --> 00:27:04

on the face of the planet earth.

00:27:05 --> 00:27:07

May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala give us that

00:27:07 --> 00:27:09

ability to live up to our potential.

00:27:10 --> 00:27:12

May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala raise up amongst

00:27:12 --> 00:27:13

the young people,

00:27:14 --> 00:27:16

those who will stand and not back off.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:19

May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala unite the believers

00:27:19 --> 00:27:23

regardless of color, regardless of their understanding.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:26

May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala have mercy on

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

our children,

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

the children of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu

00:27:29 --> 00:27:32

wa sallam. May Allah take those who have

00:27:32 --> 00:27:34

died to the highest part of gender.

00:27:35 --> 00:27:37

May Allah have mercy and protect the dignity

00:27:37 --> 00:27:39

of the women of the Ummah of Muhammad

00:27:39 --> 00:27:42

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. May Allah raise up

00:27:42 --> 00:27:42

men

00:27:43 --> 00:27:45

in this Ummah who will stand for the

00:27:45 --> 00:27:46

deen

00:27:46 --> 00:27:48

and not be afraid

00:27:48 --> 00:27:49

to pay any cost.

00:27:50 --> 00:27:51

May Allah

00:27:52 --> 00:27:54

guide our misguided,

00:27:54 --> 00:27:55

confused leaders

00:27:56 --> 00:27:58

from darkness into light

00:27:58 --> 00:28:01

and give us all as our last word.

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

Allahummaaisa

00:29:32 --> 00:29:33

Islam 1 Muslimin.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:08

Brothers, I'm gonna ask you, everybody needs to

00:30:08 --> 00:30:09

come forward. Go all the way to the

00:30:09 --> 00:30:10

front,

00:30:10 --> 00:30:12

make room so the systems will be clear.

00:30:13 --> 00:30:16

Make your line straight, come forward. Everybody come

00:30:16 --> 00:30:18

forward. The line need to be tight.

00:30:20 --> 00:30:22

Bring it as as far forward as you

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

can.

00:35:43 --> 00:35:45

My brothers and sisters. We have our brothers

00:35:45 --> 00:35:46

and sisters from the

00:35:53 --> 00:35:55

remind you that we have a number of

00:35:55 --> 00:35:56

programs at AIT

00:35:57 --> 00:35:58

starting, tomorrow, Insha'Allah.
