And Hamdulillah we seek Allah. He was Hamdulillah we praise Allah we seek his age and his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and of our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides, none chemists guide and whomsoever Allah allow us to be led astray and then can guide her right. And I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah, to Allah, the Exalted and that Mohammed is his last messenger and servant O you who believe be mindful of Allah and dinette except in a state of submission to Him alone of humanity be mindful of Allah Who created you from a single soul and from that created his mate and from that scatters many men and women of
humanity be mindful of Allah and do not cut off relations with your kin, with your relatives. Indeed, Allah is the monitor over you. Oh humanity, be mindful of Allah and speak the truth in order for him to accept your your deeds, and forgive us for any of our shortcomings. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed achieved the greatest achievement as to what follows. Indeed, the best speech is the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the Quran. And the best guidance is that a Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. And the worst affairs in our doctrinal system of Islam are the newly invented ones, for every newly invented affair. And this situation is an innovation and
for every innovation that is a form of going astray. And for every form of going astray is on the phones in the fire of hell and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa taala. From that,
on the television, you see a man
around this man, there are people screaming,
and upon the screams, the man is trying to breathe.
The man is pinned down on the ground outside in the street. And he actually says, I can't breathe. Many of us know what this was. We know the name of this individual. We know what took place, we understood the dynamics some of us may not. Some of us still may believe certain things and may not believe certain things, conspiracies, if you will, that may have taken place and certain preferences of one person or one type of people over another
And the reality that I want to capitalize on in this particular situation with what took place with George Floyd
is that it was just on camera. This action of police brutality, is something that is normal in what they call the hood and impoverished areas in the projects where it's predominantly African American. And yes, yes, yes, there are crimes that are committed. There are robberies, they're stealing. There's killing. Yes, that is committed. And yes, it may be that he himself was doing a criminal act if one wants to use that, but does it warrant his death.
But what we want to capitalize on here is that this person died and this particular happening, situation of brutality. If someone in the neighborhood in this area in that area, they will say this is normal. This is nothing new. The clock does not start here with George Floyd in regards to police brutality, based on his race or based on his lifestyle or based on his economic status.
Yesterday, there was a janazah from mashallah our Imam his father passed away, may Allah have mercy on him. May Allah have mercy on him, and place him in the highest levels in gender. And one beautiful thing that he mentioned about his father, and he said, he's not he's not my father, he's my mentor. He's my teacher, he's my island, he gave him a lot of titles. May Allah make us fathers of those people, that when our children speak of us, they speak in the same manner me because Allah is going to take all of us brothers and sisters.
But one thing that he said that I asked myself upon hearing it, and it's a reminder for all of you, that he said that his father said, I'm ready to go,
I'm ready to leave.
There will be times where things will happen in history, where you look on the television screen, where you face something, a near death experience. And if you survive,
do you ask yourself, have I thought about even going? Am I ready to go?
What is taking place within this month brothers and sisters, earthquake in Morocco, flooding in Libya, earthquake in Afghanistan recently? And what is taking place with our brothers and sisters in all of these places? And importantly, as well, in Philistine and in Palestine?
There are some things I want us to consider in regards to what is happening to our brothers and sisters in humanity. And our brothers and sisters in faith in Palestine. Why do I say inhumanity because the Palestinians that are being killed,
there are some that are Christian as well.
It's important for us to understand that we as Muslims should consider a couple of things. The first of them is that as it has been termed, currently, what is taking place and Philistine is what may be termed as apartheid, what is taking place in South Africa, where you separate a group of people from another group of people due to preference, group A is more preferred, more virtuous, more deserving of the natural resources, more deserving of what the world has to offer, group A is preferred over Group B. And we will make laws and social structures to where Group B does not receive the privileges as Group A to where they may even be annexations or Dare we even say concentration camps
basically, to where you put a border around Group B and do not allow them to leave you deprive them of their natural rights as human beings, because of who they are. This is what can be termed as apartheid. And this apartheid can even to lead to lead to genocide, to where you Group A has the intention of eradicating Group B. Eradicating means to eliminate through different means starvation, hunger, killing,
bombing, whatever it may be, the plan to eradicate them is genocide. Now that we understand this definition, it's important that we understand these terms, and we see the situation of what happens in history to wear as they say, if the shoe fits, wear it.
The first thing brothers and sisters we want to understand is we should not equate the oppressor with the oppressed. Why do I say this? When you look at the news media, and you see what's happening with a lot of these major news channels in these when they're questioning whether it's a prime minister of Israel or
particularly whether it's the prime minister of Palestine in different countries, they start off by asking the question, do you condone the action of this terrorist organization, condoning terrorist, immediately putting these words in the minds of the, in the ears of the listener? In the minds of the one that views as though the clock started October 7, the clock started of what? of killing
of human life.
But brothers and sisters, it's important for us to know who the oppressor and the oppressed is. And in this case, we see that the Palestinians, may Allah have mercy on them, may Allah protect them. May Allah protect any soul that has been taken unjustly, just as in 911.
We say that we do not support as Muslims, as Muslims, the taking of any innocent life.
The one that Allah has chosen to live on this earth, to take them off of this earth unjustly, is an Islamic
and to be consistently questioned about that, but not questioned the latter of the ones that kill with no justification. That is where there is an imbalance. That is where there is an imbalance when there is annexation when there are blockades, when, as we've seen now currently in Gaza, and in all of Palestine, particularly in Gaza, that there is closing there, the closing the electricity, no water, no food. What are you supposed to do the human being? After calling out to Allah subhanho wa Taala will look for some type of help within himself and the ones around him or her.
We cannot equate the oppressor with the oppressed, to where they say Why would you condone the killing of these civilians, okay, these civilians of the ones that you are calling terrorists have been killed for over 50 years based on who they are, or based on a territory that they live, which, in fact, they were the majority of that territory years ago.
They were the majority.
What happened, it's important that we understand and make that differentiation of who the oppressed and the oppressor is to where there is no equation, when putting them in the same bucket in regards to responsibility
in regards to our responsibility, and we as Muslims, it is incumbent upon us to make sure that we uphold the spirit of the *tier because many times when we say this *ty out, we understand the deen of Islam. But the spirit of the Sharia is very important for us to understand preservation of human life, preservation of lineage, preservation of money, preservation of religion.
This is what is incumbent upon us to protect, to defend, to honor to respect. So never making that equation between the two.
point that it's important for us to realize as Muslims,
as we see on the media, which connects to the first point is the selective attention that has been given
the selective attention that has been given to those that support oppression.
By the questioning that is asked, when we are in the stores when we are at work, the framing of the question, that was a question that was well known question, post 911 Are you Muslim, or an American?
a loaded question to me San Muslim, they cannot make us an Aussie. He's not patriotic, he or she is not American.
And if you say you're American, okay, so you denounced Islam? No, I am both.
So when they ask you the question, do you condone the acts of these people? We say as Muslims, we don't condone killing innocent civilians, either to the degree in war, if there was war, do not chop off a tree do not kill women and children from the mannerisms of war in Islam.
So we as Muslims don't condone that, but you're asking the wrong question.
Let's have a little revisionist history and not have selective questioning, selective empathy. Because every human human being has a right.
And when you be little, one groups blood over another, this is where we as Muslims, and as human beings have a problem. And this is where it's important for the Muslim to speak out to the best of their ability. And this is where it's important for the Muslim to make sure their voices heard. But when we say that we don't know
Even without any responsibility.
Many of us have seen posters that there are rallies that are taking place today, mashallah, we have a cop car in front of the Masjid. Because there is probably some people that have a wrong perception about Islam and Muslims. And there are Muslims that may have a wrong perception about the ladder.
So when we see this take place, there are certain mannerisms in regards to letting your voice be heard. People will go out on strike, and they will do Medora they will take your posters and they will want to speak the truth. They will want to propagate the oppression propagate the fact that there is oppression.
But it's important brothers and sisters, that we are goal oriented.
That when we see a problem, we have a strategy and a goal with ultimately the preservation of human life. And ultimately, that preservation of human life to tell them about Allah subhanho wa Taala in different ways. So if you're going out on strike, be careful. If you want to go across from a group of people that may be Jewish, or Christian, supporting the Jewish and they're making it a religious matter which in essence, it can be.
But we make sure we understand the verse by Allah subhanho wa taala, which is a foundational principle for us to remember, Allah says in the Quran, if there would be laminar chiffon regime.
Well, that's a sub bullet in their own I mean, Dooney later Subala either won't be lady in
Allah says in the Quran,
and do not curse those that call on other than Allah, for they will, will curse Allah without knowledge.
For they were cursed will curse Allah without knowledge. I remember when I pulled up to one of these strikes a long time ago, I go into the parking lot and they're standing at the entrance, and one of them calls my wife and name I can't even say in the message.
My first reaction was handled your business, stop the car, handle your business by giving him the business.
First reaction, I'm not even gonna lie to you.
But then you have to stop and look at the masala and the facet, what is beneficial 51 to 100% more beneficial or 51 to 100% more harmful? This is what is important in regards to speaking out especially raising your voice in these particular environments. What is your goal for going there? Are you trying to articulate a message to the surrounding people that may not know what has been going on in Palestine with the Palestinians that they are not aware of the apartheid and possible genocide, that they are not aware that the electricity has been cut off, no food, no water to spread awareness lofty goal to go there and shower and cause problems and possibly can lead to death. This
is where it can be problematic not only for you, but for your respective communities.
So firstly, brothers and sisters, knowing that when we watch the news, depending on which news outlets which is the majority of them,
when we hear the questioning immediately know that the questioning may be equating the oppressed with the oppressor not having any revisionist history, not taking it back to when it started the establishment of Israel.
How did it start? Not taking that into account when they asked a question. It's important for us as Muslims to know this. And it's important for us as Muslims to get our children educated on this history. For verily ones that don't educate themselves on history are most likely to repeat it a cola cola was Safale welcome. It certainly must mean first of all flew in who holds a full rank
and Hamdulillah he certainly he was shook ruler who Allah told me he wanted it.
So paella brothers this is I remember when I was leaving it outside of a masjid. It was yomo. Juma. And this is when the war in Syria was taking place. I remember I was living outside of the masjid and there was a cake. And it was the Syrian flag. And he'd had the face of someone that was dead. And I've never seen this this first time I've seen faces on in the newspapers in this top part of the world. I didn't know what was going on.
But I knew that I had to educate myself on what was going on. At the same token. I didn't think it was the wisest way to propagate certain depression that is taking place because at the same time I saw that there was a lot of anger.
A lot of anger and frustration, which is human
But just as we are sad with the passing away of someone,
there is also the responsibility of being patient with the predestination of Allah. By taking that person.
There is a process of closure that the human being must go through. And it's very important for your sanity for your family, for your community. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the beautiful Hadith where he said roughly that each one of you will have your Mk II and Jenna, you have your seat and Jen if you're from the people of Jana, and there will be people from you that will have your seat in the Hellfire if you for the people of the Hellfire. Then the companion said O Messenger of Allah alpha then attacking this should we not just relax? It's already predestined. It's already predestined. The prophets of Allah Allah Salam said it Malou for Kulu MO Yes, sir. Only
male Haleakala, the pastor said, he said work at for verily, each one of you has been facilitated by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. But in that which you were created, meaning that although there is predestination, that does not deny you the fact to act, the reality that you still have to act, there are three things that I want to remind us in regards to what has taken place, with our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
Three things that I want to remind you all, that each and every single one of us as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has established here, we all have a responsibility.
And there are three things The first of them is to donate. And when you hear the word donates, this is not a fundraiser.
But it can be to donate your time, your talent or your treasures. donate your time to communities that may need education. donate your time to tell people about Islam. donate your time to get involved in the general community here in Capelle. There may be people that have the wrong minute, maybe there will be people that have the wrong message about Islam and Muslims, there will be people that have the wrong message of Palestine, because they are not educated. Because they are working nine to five and have four children in each grade, and their grandparents living with them. So they're just going to see what's on the news by news that they trust by their father was very
They've never met a Muslim.
They've never met a Palestinian. They've never met a Syrian. They've never met a Lebanese.
They've never met them. So when they see you, they automatically have a perception and let's be honest, we as Muslims have perceptions about the white men as well.
Subhanallah How many times have I heard when I hear people speak in their language? They'll say Pakistani or the white men.
They have a perception about the white men. It is important that we as Muslims even lead that in educating ourselves about each other, which is cool. Sure, Reuben, welcome back, Isla Lita, we made you nations and tribes for you to get to know one another. Because knowledge of each other increases the cohesion, the love the healthy coexistence. But when you constantly close the door to the messages, go to your car, go home. Don't get involved in any community activities. How do we expect healthy cohesion, coexistence? So donating your time donating your talents. When you get involved in communities, whatever career you have, going to a local community center and teaching people from
your from your knowledge, software, engineering, plumbing, carpentry, anything to donate your time and your treasures, firstly to a place of the worship of Allah establishing the word of Allah on the earth, within the mosque in the masjid. Donating to these causes is how you can help the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala illuminate in its respective areas. And with that, this is what we call grass roots. And they call it grassroots because you start with a foundational sociological action, which is getting involved. The second of them is that we are diligent, that we're diligent, we are diligent and learning about the history of Palestine.
When we see a newscaster ask Do you condemn Hamas for what they are doing? And then you see the No, this is the wrong question. Why is it the wrong question? Why are they asking that question? Has anything taken place 5070 years ago in this country,
with the Prophets inhabitants of this earth? What is the relevance of basil muck this? What is the relevance of goods? What is the relevance of these places? And how does it tie into a socio economic structure or importance that we as Muslims, as Muslims, should know as Muslims should know? What is the third holiest mosque in
Islam, where is it? How does it have a connection to what is going on today? Diligence and learning and brothers and sisters, I have to be honest, there is no excuse if we do not know nowadays, no excuse, no excuse
for you not to turn on YouTube, Google, we even have AI Artificial Intelligence now, to learn more about the history of this blessed land,
to be diligent and learning and to be active with our youth, even those that are probably the most technologically savvy, social media, finding good messages, reminding people about Allah subhanho wa taala, reminding people with accurate statistics on people that have died due to oppression, reminding people on these principles of what true oppression is the meaning of apartheid, the meaning of genocide, the meaning of racism,
educating people through Instagram, through Facebook, through Twitter, taking the opportunity to learn yourself from reliable sources, and to spread this news to where people can be educated, because this is what they deserve. It is a right for them to be educated. So to donate to be diligent brothers and sisters, this is not a time to sit and relax and not be educated about what is going on with our brothers and sisters in Palestine, which has been going on for over 50 years of siege, of blockades of killing of oppression.
Lastly, and not least, and I want to end it with this. And we hear it all the time. And as a matter of fact, we're supposed to hear it all the time.
I do not want to mistaken the term do is is it as though this is all we have. But what Allah He if it was all we had, it is enough as well.
The opportunities that were mentioned earlier, going online, going offline,
donating to your communities, educating your communities, going online and educating communities, brothers and sisters, it is very important that we put our hands up to Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask him to protect our brothers and sisters around the world to ask him to protect our brothers and sisters that have died from the earthquakes from the flooding, to ask him to protect and guide our brothers and sisters that have died from oppressive actions.
To ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to make us patient with his predestination
to ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to give us perseverance, the bat, throughout this process of being patient, when you will see time sometimes as human beings we may ask when is the help of Allah coming, all of this is taking place, Muslim countries around the world, these natural disasters in Muslim countries, Allah ye naturally as a human being.
But when you have conditioned yourself to be patient with what Allah has predestined, that is perseverance, that is the bet. And that is what Allah promises for those that have to bet his promises near
Lassie brothers and sisters to bless us with prosperity, prosperity and I mean prosperity net is success. prosperity of the heart Allahumma to ality to a fate to hoomin alpha to alpha who ILN Eman O Allah as we say in our prayer for slotzo Janaza one that you have caused to die and leave this earth allowing to die on Eman brothers and sisters leaving this earth please with Allah subhanaw taala is the most important thing out of all of this. When we rely on the tangible things of what we see on the news, and things that we see, we don't want to see, it reminds us that there will be a time that Allah will take us
there will be a time that Allah will take us just as as it is natural for us to be sad. With the departing of our brothers and sisters due to oppression. One thing that we should be reminded of is that they are Shahada.
This should not be taken lightly.
Because if you stay sad with what Allah has predestined, it can lead you to anger. But when you're saddened by the fact of oppression, that's what makes you sad.
But when you think about where they're going,
this is what we all strive
and that's why the Muslim that relies on Allah. That's why the Muslim that understands the concept the concept of dying on Eman, Walla, he no one can take that away from you.
And doing these actions of donating your time. being diligent and learning for the sake of Allah strengthens that Eman in your
Heart to where if you are in the hospital or you are on a field and you know that your time is coming you leave this earth happy with what Allah has predestined
your ability mean also the one animals that I feel and if you feel the SR a barrel Amin O Allah help the weekend destitute that are in Palestine your ability mean Allah Allah help the weak and destitute that are hungry that are thirsty that are relying on your your bed I mean or Allah bless them with perseverance and patience and prosperity Ramadan Amin or Allah make them make it easy upon them to deal with what you are predicting yada yada I mean, oh Allah bless our children with nourishment of Eman, bless our children with the nourishment and their parents with the nourishment of humanity on our beloved I mean all bless our brothers and sisters that you've taken from an
