My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam.
Now, for about two weeks,
the Muslims around the world
feel the pain.
Have the announcement
that Jerusalem l coats
will soon be
the capital of what is called Israel.
And time and time again, we see the enemies of Islam
who attack the Muslims
trying to take alkaloids from the Muslim in
and we ask ourselves
why is el coche Why is Jerusalem so important to the ummah of Islam?
Allah subhanho wa Taala
when he described for us, in the Quran,
the land of beta Dimopoulos of Jerusalem of Palestine in this age these areas, Allah subhanho wa Taala called it allow the Mocha desert, the Holy Land, Allah subhanho wa Taala described it as being a land of Baraka Subhan Allah the SRB Abdi he Laila Minal Masjid Al haram eland measure that up so Allah the bow Ragna hula who Subhan Allah, the One who has sinned it with his servant from Mecca and Mozilla haram to administer that out saw that we have blessed it surrounding areas a place of Baraka,
the place that Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When he went there, he led the other MBAs in the prayer and ascended there to the heavens to Allah subhanho wa taala.
One of the only messages
that were allowed to travel to visit as Muslims as it was narrated in Sahih al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim led to shoot the Rihanna do not travel to visit except for three massages, the Masjid Al haram in Mecca, and the mission of the prophets that Allahu Allah He was salam and in mercy, the Luxan this was the first Staebler that the Muslims ever prayed to.
At the time in Mecca, the Muslims used to face baiting this, they would face in quotes when they would pray.
And for 16 or 17 months, as it was narrowed insane behind in Sahih Muslim when they moved to Medina, the province that Allahu Allah He was salam and the Companions also faced beaten up this
the great reward for praying in this Masjid it's very famous that it's 500 salats. But perhaps the more authentic narration is 250 and some narrations 1000, but perhaps the most authentic is 250.
Nonetheless, the scholars all agree of the great reward of traveling to pray in his great messages.
One of the only four messages that the Dogen will not be able to enter, as it was confirmed and narrated in the Muslim imam.
We know that he can't enter Mecca and Medina. But in the Hadith which came in the Muslim female monument, he said for messages that the jail will not be able to enter the Masjid Al haram in Mecca, and the mercy of the prophets that Allahu Allah He was selling them. And the masjid of abou Where's where Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to Musa alayhis salam and Al Masjid Al Aqsa, these are the four messages that the jail will not be able to enter. And because of this,
this high status that it has in our religion, it's something that's very very important to us. It's something that is from either from our belief or something that we're not going to roll over and just let happen Alhamdulillah every time that the enemies of Islam
took the messy the luxol or tried and hum their loss of Panama Tala sent someone to take it back from this Amma and Allah will send again from this ummah, who will take it back in these days in shallow Tada.
What's important, my dear brothers and sisters, is that we don't sit around what happens now all the time in the days we live in, is we want to play the blame game. We want to blame other people, other countries for what's going on with an emotional episode. And what is important and what is really significant is that each of us
to take some time and reflect and ask himself what is my role?
Because we're very good at blaming others.
they should be doing this. And this one should be doing that. And they shouldn't be doing that. And if it was like this, it would be like that. What about you? What about me? What is our role? And this is very important. If we want to be victorious as OMA, when it comes to elevating this when it comes to outputs.
It's not just about the role of certain governments. We're always blaming this government or that governments.
We need to realize some things. First of all, the people who are ruling, how did they get there? Through the people through us.
So if we're oppressors, then most likely those who rule us are going to be oppressors as well.
What good that he can do Ali Baba volley Mina bhaban, Allah made it clear that we will make those who are the oppressors and the wrongdoers, we will make them allies to one another.
What did they do to deserve this be my counter Yuxi Boon with that which they earned, that was their doing, we have to look at our actions. Before we look at the actions of others and blame others. We know the principle that the Quran teaches us in the Allahu Allah Yoga, you know, might be a tome in Hatha Yoga, you know, maybe and to see him a lot doesn't change the situation of the people until they change the situation of themselves. First.
We're sitting around blaming others for what's going on, what are we doing?
What's our role, this is what we need to ask ourselves first. Because I can't go to the top and make changes, I don't have that ability, and neither do any of you.
We can advise, because here's how it should be. But the one thing that I can change is myself is my family.
Those close to me, we can make changes there.
It's important that in our own households, that outputs is part of our DNA, that our children, our families understand what's even as some of the scholars said, hanging pictures in our in our house, and letting our children know of the importance of inputs. Something might seem small, somebody's been a nice decoration, but it has meaning behind that picture.
This is our Masjid. This is where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam ascended to the heavens. This is where he led the NBN prayer,
the great reward the great place that place of Baraka, the Holy Land, this is it.
This needs to be part of our DNA.
And we need to never forget, because this is what the enemies want. They want us not really to make a big deal about it. To kind of forget it. philos what happened happened, fellas, what can we do about it?
And when they made this move, how do they make them they made it certain individuals, certain leaders didn't care about their goods and that's when they made the move. But when the people the OMA stands up and in hamdulillah
many people we've heard of those some from governments from individuals who have come out and spoken against this will hamdulillah
and it's something that we will never accept as Muslims. This is the land that Allah subhanho wa Taala now gave to the Muslims and we will continue inshallah Tada to be the rulers of quotes inshallah Tada, but each one of us has to step up and do what he can do.
And we look at the issue of being victorious as an ummah, when it comes to all of our offense, it goes back to certain principles.
Allah subhanho wa Taala made it clear to us in the Quran.
What kind of help an ally in a nostril remove meaning. Allah subhana wa Taala said that is incumbent and Allah subhanho wa Taala was the fourth element meaning
but who are meaning and movement in Allah listen on their tongues only
are the ones you see the man in action
when our Eman is in our hearts and then on our times and it shows up in our actions. That's when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is going to support us and make us victorious. When
we support the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has promised us that he will support us.
Yeah, you Allah Dena Amanu in Tonzura law Yan Sorkin where you tell them
oh you have believed? Support Allah and Allah will support you and he will make your feet firm.
That's when we're going to prevail when we support the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it very clear, crystal clear. And the
Hadith in there was narrated and Sunnah videoed when the Prophet sal Allahu Allah He was
Elam mentioned different distractions from the dunya like being involved in the business transaction of an arena, which is a haram way of buying and selling, and that we're distracted by following our cattles and our agriculture, destructive, all different affairs of the dunya This is our main concern, and that we leave fighting and struggling in the path of Allah subhanho wa taala. What happens when we get involved in this? The Prophet said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Salop Allahu Alikum Gulin that Allah will put a humility upon you He will humiliate you. And this is the situation of the Ummah
what is the cure? How do we get out of this situation that when then he said, lay out a foul uncom had told you Rila decom Allah will not raise this humiliation from amongst you are from upon you until you return to your religion.
This is the only way and that starts my dear brothers and sister with us. Not always waiting for the others to do it. So let's say if this ruler or that ruler, or this individual or this country or that country, if they start to do it, they will do it
doesn't make sense start with yourself. It all starts within with ourselves. Once we start as individuals, and then the failure spreads and the OMA starts to return to their Deen so panela as a Muslim now, my mocha dissents my holy sites are being attacked
or being taken from me in front of my own eyes. And I'm just going to wait for somebody else at least I'm going to be a good Muslim within myself. So you know what? This is because our the new our sins is because we've turned away from Allah subhanho wa taala. Therefore, what I can do myself, I can return to my deen and practice my deen and myself and my family
and inshallah Tada. That's the domino effect. It starts with one individual then two and then three until the OMA returns in shallow Tana.
If we want the support from ALLAH SubhanA wa Asana,
we want to be victorious. We need to know what is the objective? Is it just that we have a quote and we say it's ours? Or what is the objective of having it
and one of the most difficult times
that the OMA went through when the slowly been the Crusaders when they came and they took me to mock this for around 90 years, and they killed 1000s and 1000s of the Muslims slaughtered them. The blood went through the streets of inputs
until the loss of power what Allah sent from this ummah, and 583 from the Hijra sallahu Salahaddin Allah UB Rahim o lo, Tana, he entered on a Friday on Joomla. What was the first thing that he did? And I want you to pay attention to what I just said a minute ago. What is the head if what is the objective of having a foot for the Ummah, the first thing he did, or from the first things he did after he cleaned up the area, and he removed the crosses, they made the adhan, and they made the establishment of Salah to Juma the Juma prayer after 90 years when he was forbidden
Alladhina imagekind now who fill out a form of Salah who was the carrot? Well, Mr. Obama roof, wonder who it monka what Allah he is able to remove those if we give them the establishment, they give them the authority upon Earth, the law makes it clear and this is what do they do. They establish the prayer. They give the Zakat
and they call to that which is good. And they forbid that which is evil, and to Allah returns all of the affairs. This is the objective by establishing the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala once beaten up, this comes back to the Muslim and this is the objective not just to have it to say it's ours. That but to establish the religion there and upon the earth. This is the objective of the Muslim
where we want the last panel Wattana to support us.
We have to realize some of the things that we need
some of the tools that's going to help us be victorious
and the AI and so little and fan. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us three of the key objectives three of the key things or the three tools that will help us be victorious as an ummah
while to Allah wa rasuluh the first thing
the most important thing, obey Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu is to obey Allah and to obey His messenger. The second thing, Wallah xs L and do not differ amongst yourselves not disputes and
what's meant by this deferring the deferring? Not do I pray like this or you pray like this now, it's not what we're talking about. We're talking about issues. We're talking about the difference that makes us separate one another.
We go into different groups. This group, that group, my group, your group,
this is what Allah subhanaw taala is talking about, as well as the nursery don't differ amongst yourselves.
What happens what's the result of this different law makes it very, very clear in the eye and reflect on the situation of the Ummah today when Allah says will add ons for Deaf Shalu what has happened, you will lose your courage the first thing and then you will lose your strength you will lose your courage and then you will lose your strength. This is the reality of the OMA because we differ amongst ourselves. And most of the things there are a shared taffy, it's it's little things that don't really mean much and we make it big things well, and Barack
and even if we do differ even if the differences have meaning,
they're important issue the differences we don't have to separate us we still remain brothers, and this was the way of the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu when they different. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala told us at the end of the verse was bureau in Aloha slavery and to be patient and do the laws with the patient ones. Always the true believer. He believes he acts upon his Deen but he has patient he has patients he doesn't let his anger and what he sees happening to the OMA to do haram things in order to make the OMA prevail. As we've seen many groups in this this understanding my dear brothers and sisters, the ones who went astray who fell into extremism, they had there was
zealous for the deen. They want a good for the deen. But they didn't follow the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah when you have to have the patience, you have to have the patience and so you have the strength. Don't do that which is haram. That which is not permissible thinking you're going to help the Dean because in the deen of Islam, the ends do not justify the means. The ends do not justify the means if it's done by a halal or haram way, then that is something that's not permissible for the Muslim to act upon. Even if he thinks he's going to support his Deen BarakAllahu li Walakum Quran he was sunnah whenever anyone here can be my female mentor it will take him out a
pool of holy ha That was stuck for Allah he will come for still Pharaoh who in who will have already
Bismillah he will cover was Salatu was Salam o Allah Nabil Mustafa with
my Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam.
It should come as no surprise to us.
What is happening when it comes to beating them up this? Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. They make everything very, very clear to us in the Quran and the Sunnah, it's upon us to go back and to look into the Quran and to look into the teachings of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you will find that it's all laid out. It's all clear.
The enemies of Islam, you think you're just going to leave us? Allah made it clear no Quran Wallen told the uncle yo who do well and Nosara had that Debbie amulet to him, that the Christians and the Jews, they will never be pleased with you until you follow their religion.
This is Allah subhanho wa Taala what he's saying to us, so you think they're going to be pleased with us and let things slide? Well, our user Luna, you're caught in order comm had to do Command D in communist totaro, they will continue to fight you
and to kill you, until they make you leave your religion if they have the ability to do so. This is what Allah is telling us in the Quran.
We shouldn't be surprised.
In fact, it's fair to say that what's happening now with our courts, we deserve it.
We deserve it, because of our own actions of what we are doing, and what we are not doing as Muslims. And this is very important. We go back to what we said in the beginning in the first clip, but about the blame game. Stop blaming others and look at your own self. What can I do? What can I do in my family, this is what we need to focus on. And this will we want to take home with us today from this book, not just to remind ourselves of the importance of inputs
Alhamdulillah we know that the course is going to come back to us in gentle China.
What's important is how long is it going to take and what are we going to do and when we support the OMA
and we support Allah subhanho wa Taala and the religion of Allah. We remind ourselves that even though everybody believes the Messiah will come at the end all of the religions that the true believers, the more meaning have something that the cavalry in the this
Believers don't have

Yeah, you know in some store Allah Yong Soo, oh you I believe if you support Allah, Allah will support you. My dear brothers and sisters as we go home today, as we said, the objective is to reflect on our own situations and to make positive change instead of blaming others for what's going on and realize that all of us have a role and what's happening to the Ummah today to my animal Rahim Allah Ya, Allah, Amara Combi hammer, brother BBFC Ethan mathan Be Mala ecotel Quran, Allah
