And the best guidance is that of Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, and of the worst

00:05:37--> 00:05:52

affairs in our doctrinal system of Islam are the newly invented ones. For every newly invented affair in this situation is an innovation and for every innovation is a form of going astray. And for every form of going astray is in the fire of hell, and we seek refuge and Allah subhanho wa taala. From that.

00:05:53--> 00:05:59

I was in the car with my wife a couple of years ago, actually many years ago, and we were driving to a rally.

00:06:01--> 00:06:39

And this rally as we were entering this rally, subhanAllah it was upon the entrance, you find people that were against Islam and Muslims. And the way that I found out was the post of war that they were holding, you know, the things that were written on, there are things that I can't even say on the member. I can't even say them, because there were curse words that were very Islamophobic Islamophobic, meaning statements of hatred towards Islam, and even statements of hatred towards those that practice Islam, you and me. And they don't even know us. But there were statements of hatred. As I'm in the car with my wife and my children who are young, by the way, none of them over

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

the age of 15. They're asking what that word means on the poster board. Okay, for sure. How do you explain what that means?

00:06:49--> 00:07:22

You're going to have to say something. So you have to explain it in a way that lets them know the situation. You know, there are people that just don't like you for who you are, just as the prophets were not like who they were. And what was the main reason they were not liked. You always bring it back to Allah subhanho wa taala. Bring it back to because of the faith, which is the way that we live our life. Some people know that. And they're envious, but some people don't. And this is the safest way to start. There may be those that are ignorant about who you are, and what you represent.

00:07:23--> 00:07:45

And if they found out there's a probability, a high probability that they may accept the way you are, and want to become a part of that fraternity, that lifestyle, ie be a Muslim, and we should have no shame in believing in that. Or let me say it another way. We should have no shame, or no doubt that Allah hottie

00:07:46--> 00:08:08

can guide who He wills. We read about this from many companions from them aroma, but I'll have Bob Radi Allahu anhu, who was envious towards Islam, and Muslims. And he became it throughout history, the second Caliph in Islam. And throughout history, he was also the one that was opened, what as we know, as Palestine today,

00:08:10--> 00:08:18

by the permission of Allah subhanho wa taala. So as we're driving in the parking lot, we get closer to these people with these very, very

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

colorful words, if you will.

00:08:23--> 00:08:55

And as I'm driving, one of them knocks on the door, brothers and sisters knocks on the door on my wife's side. And she says a hateful word, she calls her a type of animal. And then her husband, whoever that Joker was, who that guy was, excuse me, comes next to her and he says something else. Brothers and sisters, for a split moment, I was ready to lose my freedom, I'm going to be totally honest with you, I was ready to get out the car and lose my freedom. If you know what that means I was ready to beat him down with my hands or whatever what was in my hand, you're not going to talk to my wife like that.

00:08:57--> 00:09:37

But I stopped, and I kept going. And I drove and went inside into the rally. And there was a couple of talks and hamdulillah it was good for our children to see that. Because they saw that this is the real world. There will be people that will not like you, there will be people that have the wrong idea about you. But what is important is to stay the course. What is important is to make sure that your anchor is always that which holds you down. That's what we call it an anchor. It's the heaviest element that holds the boat down. So it holds you down keeps you grounded, keeps you firm, does not let your emotions drive you off into something that you may regret. Because something may happen to

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

you or other than you being those that may believe what you believe. And that's the message that I want to propagate today, particularly to our youth is that we cannot be of those that allow our emotions to take us to do things that we may regret. That may have a rippling effect on not only us but our family members or the OMA at law

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

arch, the OMA at large

00:10:03--> 00:10:29

because we have to take the means to Unity. What is going on with our brothers and sisters in Palestine in Gaza in particular? May Allah subhanaw taala you fernridge And whom may Allah subhanaw taala make their affairs easy for them? When us Allah Allah Yahweh Tala Kulu. Behind me last month, Allah make their hearts firm on their belief in him on their faith. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make any affliction, pain internally,

00:10:30--> 00:10:58

externally, be an expiation for any shortcomings. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept any of our dual eyes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those that practice better deeds from what we were yesterday to where our dual eyes can be accepted? And may Allah make us concern with those actions for this particular reason? And make us present in these types of thoughts on an hourly basis, not daily, hourly basis, may Allah protect our brothers and sisters.

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

When seeing this brothers and sisters, I've been asked countless times by the youth, and I'd say 100 law that I've been asked for them by them, youth, those that are in high school, those that are in college primarily. I feel that I'm not doing enough.

00:11:16--> 00:11:42

I'm very angry. What can I do? I can't go over there. What can I do? I say firstly, this is a good feeling. To have the desire to do something, to feel sad, to feel angry. This feeling of sadness when you see pictures, and only wanted to describe the video of us have seen them already. Have people your age or younger or those that were just born.

00:11:43--> 00:12:22

It makes you sad. And then it makes you angry. And this is from our Eman because we do not like to see any human being oppressed. But particularly those that believe in Islam, Allah and His messenger. We don't like to see that even more. It makes us more sad, more depressed. But I always remember the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When he was holding his son Ibrahim in his arms. He was holding him in his arms and Ibrahim was taking his last breath his child, young boy. He was taking his last breath, last breath and it was mentioned like his breath. You could hear the mucus because it was Subhanallah it was not a clear breathing as you can hear, clear breath it

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

was not so he was taking his last breath.

00:12:25--> 00:12:31

And the Prophet SAW Selim said he smelled them He caressed him. And then he was emotionally intelligent.

00:12:32--> 00:13:07

He said in the Lena Ted Matt will will call Bella Jarocin. While we're in Lima Farah Kochi multimo Farah Kartikeya, Ibrahim nama has wound. He said the very early the I shed the I shed tears, the heart is saddened and rarely Oh, Ibrahim, we are with your departure from this earth from me your father were saddened. Well, Lana Kulu dilemma you have the rub, but we will not say anything that is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala his own son dying in his arms. I don't know if any of you have ever had that experience. We've seen that with our brothers and sisters in the closet, in their arms SubhanAllah.

00:13:10--> 00:13:45

We cannot allow that anger to divert us to a direction that will be detrimental to our development as Muslims and even individually, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, it is important that we are Hadees that we are diligent that we harness these feelings, but we allow them and steer them and dare I say guide them after the Hadees permission, the one that the ultimate guide to use it in a way that brings us closer to Allah by by doing things that help ourselves and help humanity.

00:13:46--> 00:13:57

I want to start with the story of Musa alayhis salam. When Musa alayhis salam went to Allah subhana wa Tada and we know that when he went to Mount Sinai Jebel Thor,

00:13:58--> 00:14:18

Allah subhanho wa Taala summoned him for 40 days and 40 nights and Musa asked to see him. Allah spa said lenta Ronnie, well, I can remember illegibly for and it's the Quran, McKenna who for Sophia Ronnie. He said, Look at the mountain and if it stays firm stays there, then you will see me when Allah subhanaw taala showed himself to the mountain, the mountain bursted

00:14:20--> 00:14:40

and Musa lost his consciousness, and it said, Subhana Cthulhu Eleiko and O with me. When he woke up, he said, Subhana Glory to you Allah, I seek forgiveness and I am the first of the believers. And the chapter thought Allah subhanho wa Taala told him, you know the people that you left Benno Israel eel, that will just save from your own

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

when you left in, the sea was split for you. And you say you're safe and for your own benefit Israel Ian, there is a man there named Sam MIDI. And some say his name was Musa as well. He convinced them to take their gold and melt it and make it in the shape of a agent and an agent is like

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

A small cow or a calf.

00:15:03--> 00:15:18

And when this engine was made because he was an expert in molding as Some scholars say, he took this melted gold and molded it into a small cow and the wind the wind would blow through it. It had a whole hour. So last month I said Jessa de la hoo hoo hour.

00:15:19--> 00:15:36

It had a howling sound, or some would say it sounded like a cow. To where some of the food jar some of the individuals that were from Benny Sri Ian, and some scholars say the disobedient one started to worship this calf, this gold statue.

00:15:37--> 00:15:41

When Musa came back, Allah subhanaw taala mentions something so

00:15:42--> 00:16:21

interesting and human, and prophetic. Interesting because he's human, but he's still a Prophet. Allah He said, Allah subhanho wa Taala says after all the ministry jonji Wallah ma Raja Musa Ilya call me and Rob banner Asif and barley bit Summerhall left ammonium in birdie. Allah says in the chapter off when moves when most returned to his people full of wrath and sorrow. He said vile is the course that you are following in my in my in my absence bit some are calling to moon human body bits is like what a bad thing. It's a form of disappointment. Mahala to Mooney what I have left you with after I've left What have y'all done.

00:16:22--> 00:16:57

Then he says La Salam. O Allah subhanaw taala says I do to Umrah become where you hasty in the order if your Lord and some say Elijah and a surah. A Surah means you're doing something rapidly or quickly. But the idea that means you are hasty means that you are doing something before it's prescribed time. Hasty. So when he asked them rhetorical question, were you hasty in the order of your Lord? Then what Musa alayhis salam, O Allah, Allah azza wa jal Rahu in

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

the tablet that Musa had

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

he through the tablet,

00:17:04--> 00:17:27

Wahhabi ROTC ROTC, your juku in a he pulled his brother, his older brother Aaron Harun whom he left to be amongst the people. He pulled his head and some scholars say it was from from anger. Some scholar says because he wanted to speak to him and how could you let this happen? Because what does Musa Musa say? i What are they saying? And what did you say after that? Well call our

00:17:29--> 00:17:38

parliament I'm in a coma soda I phony What can I do to ruin any? He said oh, the son of my mother had been known me.

00:17:39--> 00:18:16

Very the people. What did they do? They overpowered me and almost killed me because how don't try to call the people too good. But they disobeyed Him. They'd rather obey the Samiti because the samedi was telling them that look, this is what is prescribed for us. Let's make this golden calf and worship it and then a sound came out of it. And they were more amazed and ended up worshipping some of them ended up worshiping that golden calf, but how it was said these people tried to kill me. But then how do one says a very important statement. And this is very important for all of us as Muslims, particularly now when we are angry, when we may go to rallies. And we may have some

00:18:16--> 00:18:40

dissension amongst each other or someone's May, some may say something from the other side, or they say people that do not wish any good for Islam and Muslims don't wish any good for our brothers and sisters in Palestine. They may say something very ignorant. And in the midst of people yelling in the midst of adrenaline and the midst of anger in the midst of sadness, someone may do something that is not befitting from the Muslims.

00:18:41--> 00:18:52

What is how don't say to Moses to remind Moses, how long are they Salam? What is he saying? In uncommon salah? funI vocabulario, khulumani Fanad to Schmidt bl, da,

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

fella to Schmidt bill.

00:18:55--> 00:19:08

Journey, man, oh, man falling. Heroin tells Moses that people were trying to kill me they would kill me if I was to continue on. He says so let not the enemies gloat over me.

00:19:09--> 00:19:16

Why don't let them gloat over me or over us even when they see us having a problem with one another.

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

It is important that we as Muslims today, particularly our youth, when what is going on in Palestine, we make sure that we are still a solid body of Muslims together, that we represent each other that we don't talk bad about one another.

00:19:34--> 00:20:00

You know how many Muslims mashallah are going online on television. And they're taking it upon themselves with the knowledge that they have with the wherewithal that they have to speak and represent a human efforts. But then on top of that, to even sleep say it's a religious concern as well. When Muslims see that and they are telling facts and they're doing the best that they can. We should spread the message. We should not talk about down Oh,

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

upon someone that is making the effort to stand up for justice, and to say the fact that I and my brothers and sisters stand for justice is because I'm a Muslim.

00:20:14--> 00:20:29

It's because I'm a Muslim. This is important that we as Muslims take that opportunity to make sure we articulate our faith in a way that is conducive to society. So that's what we mean. Firstly, importantly, is to be wise,

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

is to be wise to try to do the right thing at the right time.

00:20:36--> 00:20:51

And that wisdom is important for our youth as well, because the emotion, the anger, which I said can be from a man from faith, if you find yourself, you feel that you may be a little unstable.

00:20:52--> 00:21:33

Meaning that you may want to do something in a classroom to where someone may say something wrong, or incorrect, or they have the wrong motives and saying, terrorist. Are you from this terrorist nation? Mohammed? Aren't you from Palestine? Obviously, you're a terrorist as well, they may say something like that to your middle school child. As parents, it's important that we firstly talk to our children in these in school nowadays, especially if they're in public school, to ask them questions. What do you think about this news article, or this this video that we just watched this interview, making it a point to educate our children on what is happening in Palestine, or even

00:21:33--> 00:21:38

better what has happened, and what led up to this in Palestine.

00:21:40--> 00:22:06

And youth, it's important when you feel that level of instability, emotional discomfort that you reach out to someone of knowledge that is older than you, or you reach out to someone that is even older than you, that can give you some wisdom that can tell you to calm down, or they tell you and this is my advice to the parents and the elders as well to say, I understand what you're going to understand what you're feeling. I feel the same way.

00:22:08--> 00:22:16

And always tie it back to Allah subhanaw taala. Because let's be honest, brothers and sisters, there's times as human beings, we don't want to hear Be patient.

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

And there's times where be patient is not enough.

00:22:22--> 00:22:38

But know for sure be patient is the foundational principle that should be there, the beginning, the middle, and the end. So when one is active, they're still acting in a patient way, when one is at a rally, they're still being active, but they're still patient with the predestination of Allah,

00:22:39--> 00:22:47

their patient, that the outcome, inshallah will come in our lifetime, and if not, I trust that Allah will allow that outcome to come in sha Allah.

00:22:48--> 00:23:35

So when looking at the statement of Haruna, at a salon, brothers and sisters, it's important for us to remember that this is a huge opportunity for us as Muslims to come together as one OMA and to show our love and solidarity for one another, by having this shared expression and feeling and sip and sympathy of what is going on in Palestine, for the fact that it is oppression of eight other people. And on top of that it is a Holy Land, and it is Muslims that are being oppressed in this way, we can share that emotion together. And this will bring us closer as brothers and sisters make no mistake, and even Secondly, with humanity, those that may not be Muslim, this is an opportunity

00:23:35--> 00:23:51

for them to know that this is an Islamic characteristic as well, for us to have the sympathy and empathy, but most important when they see on the television, what is happening with our brothers and sisters over there, having absolutely nothing.

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

But the name that they still call out is Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

they still call in the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. This is what is meant by we are learning from them.

00:24:06--> 00:24:17

When you see someone that clearly has something less than you, whether it's wealth, whether it's health, because with health, one may not be able to obtain wealth.

00:24:18--> 00:24:21

And you see them smile, and they say Alhamdulillah

00:24:23--> 00:24:33

they say Hussmann Allah when it might work you they say praise all praise due to Allah, how are you? And then they say Allah sufficient for us. Meaning that these tangible things,

00:24:34--> 00:24:44

my own house, my own home, which is rubble, Allah sufficient for me. My own health, my own health.

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

My own health, Allah sufficient for me.

00:24:49--> 00:24:55

This is why in this masjid, and many masajid around the world, not only America, not only Dallas.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

People are becoming Muslim. This is a good thing.

00:25:01--> 00:25:10

Brothers and sisters, let's not make the mistake that when they become Muslim and things may simmer down, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect our brothers sisters and just change the situation.

00:25:11--> 00:25:22

When things simmer down, quote, unquote, that we don't return to the way that we were mentally, culturally, and sometimes religiously, to where we separate from one another.

00:25:23--> 00:26:04

So brothers and sisters allow these emotions and feelings that we have particularly our youth to be conducive in a way to be in a way that is conducive for ourselves for our Eman and for the OMA reach out to those that are older than you reach out to people of knowledge and having your mind how will this benefit me in front of Allah? How will this benefit the OMA? Because the last thing that we want is what had been said to his brother, to not let the enemies of Allah in of goodness rejoice over our dissension over our separation over our disunity. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those that are unified people? May Allah subhanaw taala make us of those that have the initial drive

00:26:04--> 00:26:33

in our hearts to be unified? For his sake. Yeah, no, but I mean, yeah, Robin, I mean, why alumina? Yara, Bella and Amin or fill them in the new Minerva Catherine Anessa. Yet you know what too often am I number or your ability to mean also the slammer will Muslimeen Allah masala Masada affinity Kula McCann Jana Wilhelmina llama so you saw that most of the things what people are seeing are alarming.
