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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:04--> 00:00:43

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen posillipo Salim al Rahman al al amin, Nabina, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi marienburg. Today, my second public lecture, I can tell him that it's, it's good to be here, the first lecture, I had the Indian food, it got me, you know, so I wasn't, I couldn't really smile. And I couldn't be myself and that lecture. So I couldn't tell you. It's good to be here, because I wasn't feeling too good that day, but hamdulillah now I can say I'm there. It's good to be here and like to thank the brothers for all their hospitality and all the brothers and sisters who have come out to this great event. And perhaps the topic that I'm going to

00:00:43--> 00:01:24

talk about is very similar to the topic that was talked about by chef did Betty or eggs, maybe one of them could be an introduction for the other. And he was mentioning in his lecture, and perhaps you benefited a lot because he woke me up as I was waiting. He was seemed like he was pumped up. So hopefully any you guys benefited from him. And the path we're going to talk about the path to victory. What is the path to victory and how can we be victorious as a Muslim oma? And we're going to start today's lecture in jalota botica, with Thailand, looking at the Quran in the understanding of victory, the fit of the victory, understanding the victory, or Nasir in Nepal, Allah Karim. So

00:01:24--> 00:02:11

the first thing we see in the Quran is that Allah subhanho wa Taala he showed us how to be victorious in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala said yeah, you Hello Dina Amano in tonzura la young soracom were you a bit of demo come? Oh you who believe? If you are if you support Allah subhana wa Tada. If you support a lot, then he will support you and He will make your feet firmer. And another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says William Soren aloha mianzhu in aloha la luna Aziz. In this verse, it's impossible to translate because of the emphasis Allah subhana wa tada put on this subject with V that in the Arabic language, and this shows us the importance of learning the Arabic

00:02:11--> 00:02:27

language, and you can never truly understand the beauty of the Quran. Unless you know the Arabic language. Allah subhanaw taala he puts emphasis that he does with the noon to Keith and with the lamb and all of this to show you and to confirm and to affirm that he will make

00:02:28--> 00:02:45

you victorious. But he says he gives a description of these people who will make victorious pay attention, the AI continues. He says I know what's Allah, Allah Dina and McKenna who fill out a form of solid Zakat, Monroeville maroof wanna, who are,

00:02:46--> 00:03:32

these people will also kind of what's I don't make victorious, these other characteristics that they are from the people that if Allah subhanho wa Taala, gives them authority on the earth, they will establish the prayer, they will give us the cut. And they will call to that which is good and forbid that which is evil. In this verse, it shows us the importance and the reality of victory in Islam. It's not something that just comes without any efforts. It is not something just comes without effort. A lot of Muslims today, they sit at home in their houses, and they sit on their couches, and they watch the news, and what is happening to the Muslim home around the world. And they say, why is

00:03:32--> 00:04:21

this happening? We have the correct religion, we have the truth. So why aren't we victorious? You see very clearly in this ayah in this verse, that we are not going to be victorious as an oma, if we do not follow the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala and being victorious as the oma, we have to realize that it's not going to come without hardships, and without difficulties and calamities and something is not going to come easily. And you see this in the Sierra of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the most beloved of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To Allah. He is the best of all of mankind has ever been created. And with this, look at the hardships

00:04:21--> 00:05:00

that he and his companions will be alone. And still, Allahu Allah, he was saying them, look at the hardships they went through in Mexico. How many years did they stay in Mecca, and they were in these difficult times where the coup fall had the upper hand and when they used to torture this the haba and where they tried made fun of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they called him a liar. They called him a poet and a magician. They wanted to kill him before he made hydrolase salatu salam, they all came together to assassinate him Elisa to Salaam and with this and he is the best of creation. All of this

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

And he's the best of Christians. So panela. And then later, when Allah subhanho wa Taala opened up Medina, for the Muslims.

00:05:09--> 00:05:52

He the victory then came. And also it was not right away, there was the first great victory in butter. And then the Muslims were defeated, and then went up and down into the Islam established on the Arabian Peninsula, and in this in the Muslims and Islam had the upper hand. So victory is not going to come easy. We must realize this. But one of the beautiful things about us being patient, and being steadfast during these hard times, is that the enemies of Islam that people use to fight Islam, they will call themselves to account and they will say, if this Islam if this religion that these Muslims had if it was not their religion of truth, why would they be willing to be so patient

00:05:53--> 00:06:27

and go through all the hardships in order to practice their religion, and then they will start to search about Islam and look to Islam, and they will come from the people who used to be the enemies of Islam, to those who enter Islam and then become our brothers in Islam, inshallah hoteller. The second point which Allah subhana wa Taala points out in the Quran is that the enemies of Islam, no matter what they do, how much money they pay, no matter how hard they try, that they will never be victorious in the end.

00:06:28--> 00:06:47

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, you really don't have a huge view nor a lot here before him that they want to put out the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala with their with their mouse they want to blow it out. But Allah subhana wa tada says to them, well yet Billa who Illa UT menorah who will carry health care for Iran.

00:06:49--> 00:07:36

In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala makes it clear that even though they want to put out the light of Allah, the religion of Allah nor of Allah subhanho wa Taala that they will not be successful. And Alo supetar refuses except for to perfect his religion, even if the disbelievers dislike that and also if you look one last panel without it says and another verse in melodien, aka photo you will feel poonawalla that barely those who have this belief they pay from their money or they will they will pay from their money why are you sick due on severely left so they can avert people from the path of Allah subhana wa tada first so you won't be a foreigner and they will pay it. The metric una

00:07:36--> 00:08:23

Allah him Hassan Allah boon, and then it will be for them a type of regret, it will be a hustler, a type of regret, and then they will be defeated after that. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala said, William Karuna, William Kuru La, la mascarene. That they are planning and that allows planning, he is the best of planners. I know what Tyler so even though we see nowadays, what the enemies of Islam what they do, to fight Islam, directly and indirectly. Now, all throughout the media, they call the Muslims terrorists, and Islam is the religion of violence and this and that, and that the Muslims do not respect their women. There's no women's rights. a religion that came 1400 years ago, when the

00:08:23--> 00:09:10

French people were debating whether the woman was a devil, or a human being. What is she? This has been proven in the books of history 1400 years ago, they're debating during the time that the Prophet Muhammad SAW him when he became a prophet in Mecca. During this time, they were debating is the woman a devil? Or she human being? And what was their conclusion that she was a devil, she wasn't a human being. And Islam came and gave rights to the women at that time. So now they try to spread all of these misconceptions about Islam, and all of these false statements about Islam. And they tried to fight Islam in every which way they can. But as Allah subhanho wa Taala made it very

00:09:10--> 00:09:18

clear in these verses, that no matter what they do, and how hard they strive, and no matter what they pay for their money, that they will never be successful.

00:09:19--> 00:09:29

The third point, that is also part of what Tyler mentioned the Quran when talking about victory, and this was very important when he said instead of Allium Ron,

00:09:31--> 00:09:42

em says como una muscle tomahto Metro, that if you are wounded, or you are afflicted with being wounded, that also they have been wounded before you.

00:09:44--> 00:09:53

And then he makes it clear subhana wa Taala. What will kill a Buddha will have been a nurse, that these are the days that we alternate them between the people. So these days,

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

people ask now, why do the Kufa have the upper hand? Allah subhana wa pty limited

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

Very clear what to kill, I knew there will have been a nest. These are the days that we alternate between the people. So some days or some years they will have the upper hand and then others we will have the upper hand. And this is how it has been since the beginning of Islam that sometimes in hamdulillah upper hand is for the non Muslims and sometimes it's for the Muslims, and as we see today and unfortunately, the days we live in, they have the upper hand, but Allah subhanaw taala didn't stop there in the verse. He continued to explain some of the some of the wisdoms in why they have the upper hand when he Allah mala hola Dena Amano

00:10:43--> 00:11:02

where tequila men come Shahada so he can know those who have believed meaning those who have truthfully believed so Allah can know the true believers. Because during the times of the hardships and difficulties This is when we see the true believers and those who claim to be believers.

00:11:03--> 00:11:48

And also to take from a Shahada. The best thing that can happen to a Muslim is to be a Shaheed to die for his religion, to die for La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, and how can we get this? If the upper hand is always to the Muslims? How can we get this Shahada if the Muslims always have the upper hand, and we don't have to defend our religion? So this is from the Hickman and then Allah subhana wa tada said, he made it very clear. While law hula you're able to volley mean, even though they might have the upper hand, that a law does not love the oppressors. So even if they have the upper hand, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love them. And then the next verse after that in 141,

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

it continues when he says to panda what's Allah? What do you

00:11:53--> 00:12:10

know William hotel caffeine, so he can purify the believers and so he can destroy the disbelievers is all from the hate comas that we see and why the days are alternated between the hop between the truth and between the button and between falsehood.

00:12:11--> 00:12:57

And yet another verse on this point, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, will let you know 50 of oil comb, do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy, into corner which Allah moon for in whom he Allah Muhammad Salah moon, that if you are suffering, then barely they are suffering as well. But the difference between us and between them alone makes it clear as the verse continues, what don't join me in Allah, Malaya June, then you hope from Allah, that which they do not hope this is the difference between us in between them, the Muslim would love to die for his religion will have to die for Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah anywhere he is, because he knows

00:12:58--> 00:13:28

the status of the person who dies for his religion. But the non Muslim helps to live forever as a final automated fee of no porn as well. And he's not willing to die. I told you when I'm in a lot, my lawyer June you want from them or you hope from Allah subhanho wa Taala something that they do not hope they just want to be victorious and go back home. But well, the Muslim he wants to be victorious as well. But he hopes to be a Shaheed in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The fourth point that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

on the subject of victory

00:13:32--> 00:13:34

is that he has promised us

00:13:35--> 00:13:54

while de la Latina, Armando amilo solahart. Allah has promised those who believe and do good deeds and pay attention to these two conditions. And there'll be a third condition at the end of the ayah. For for this promise to be for us to be successful in getting this promise from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:55--> 00:14:13

The first thing is the man and then comes after that and I'm going to slowly the good deeds. And a lot of Muslims today claim to be Muslims, but they forget also the Quran when Allah subhana wa tada matches he man, believe he mentions as well and I'm gonna slaughter the good deeds.

00:14:14--> 00:14:58

And this shows us that Islam is a religion of actions. That's something we see on our tongues. Something we have in our hearts it it is in our hearts and on our tongues. But its actions after that, and this is believed in Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala promises these people who have believed and done good deeds he promises them three things here in this verse latestuc live unknown outcome of stuff over larina macabre him that he will give them succession to authority as he has given those before them. While you met Kenan nella Hoon, Dena Humala, the tovala him and that he will establish for them their religion, the religion that he is pleased with, what have you but dilemna,

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

whom embody hovi him

00:15:01--> 00:15:23

And that he will substitute for them after their fear, a form of safety. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says and pay attention. This is the third condition we mentioned before they believe, and I'm gonna sign it and the good deeds. Allah subhanho wa Taala says here towards the end of the verse, Yabu in any law you should want to be sure

00:15:24--> 00:16:03

that they worship me and they do not join any partners with me. So Pinilla this shows us the importance of to read of the true Islamic monotheism, that are prophets that Allahu Allah He was seldom called to from the beginning of his power, until he was on his deathbed de la salatu wa sallam, and that this is the core of Islam, La Ilaha in the law, and those who claim to be Muslim, and do acts of worship, and offer acts of worship to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. They are not from the people who have been promised these three things in this verse. And the fifth point, Allah shows us

00:16:05--> 00:16:08

that we are the superior alone.

00:16:09--> 00:16:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala says to the Muslims, well as he knew what antimalarial alone in quantum meaning do not weaken, or become saddened.

00:16:22--> 00:16:26

And you are the superior if you are true believers. So now,

00:16:27--> 00:16:54

people might ask, how can we be the superior when they have the upper hand? And as we mentioned the verse before that, that this is just something Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen for the days to be alternated between how also in between Balto, for some of the reasons he mentioned in the verse you mentioned before, but a Muslim always knows that he is superior. Even if the Muslims are a weak stage. The Islam is the religion of

00:16:55--> 00:17:03

Alhamdulillah. Islam is the religion of truth, and proof after proof prove this proves this to all of mankind that Islam is the religion of truth.

00:17:05--> 00:17:48

Even if you look at the scientific things that have been proven today, something that never could have been known 1400 years ago, and now lots of tiny one tiny is showing and the time where science is very strong. He's showing the people the truth of Islam through sciences, and all throughout the history of Islam. You'll see the proofs that Islam is the religion of truth, so Muslim is always superior. And the sixth point is that Allah subhanho wa Taala He is our helper, and there is no helper for them. That he could be unknown la Mola Latina, Anelka Irina la Mola, Allah, that is because a law is the helper of the believers and the caffeine, the disbelievers, there is no helper

00:17:48--> 00:18:04

for them. And that battle is one of them, we should have came, he came, and he started calling out the names of some of this happened the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, is Mohammed from you. So the Prophet Mohammed says him said, do not answer them.

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

And then

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

he said, is Abu Bakar

00:18:10--> 00:18:15

is he from you? He said, Don't answer him. And then he said, It's

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

from you. And he said, Don't answer him. But Omar, he couldn't take it anymore. He was he went to say something. So he said, that means all of them have died. So Omar couldn't take it anymore. He said to him, that is still left my my usuki I do Allah that was you will find disliking, oh, the enemy of Allah. And then he started to chance on the whole board and to praise their different

00:18:43--> 00:19:24

uh, snom the different statues that they used to worship in Mecca. And the prophecies of them told them what to say and repeat to them until he said, when it was another one of the statues when I was alone, and then they said, he said, say to them, the companions, Allahu mowlana will molalla coma, then Allah is our helper and that there is no helper for you. And the seventh point when it comes to being victorious and the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah mentions that he is with us. Aloha Marina in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the law, how am I letting a Tupperware lady know whom mercy noon that barely a law is with the God fearing and those who are from the doers of

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

good once again, pay attention when Allah is with us and he supports us and he helps us and he makes us victorious. He mentions the descriptions of those who he helps. The first thing is that they are God fearing, they have Taqwa. And the second thing is that they are the doers of good. And another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, will Edina jahad rufina then the unknown sabudana in Allah have mercy mean that those who strive for us that barely will guide them to our ways, and barely Allah will be with the doers of good once again.

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

Those who are the doors of good Allah subhana wa Tada, he will be with him. And in the story of the hedger of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they were in the bar, when they were in the cave with us with our because of the color of the law,

00:20:15--> 00:20:37

and the mushroom chemo on top of the cave, anyone who says you have less than in the law hermana Do not be scared or Do not be sad then because barely Allah is with us. So if no no Muslim knows that Allah is with him, he will not be scared. And when he knows that a law will be with him and helping him at all times. Also, this will help him on the path to victory.

00:20:38--> 00:20:59

The eighth point is that Allah subhanho wa Taala will defend us in the law you dare fear under the nominal a lot barely a lower defend those who believe in the law set in another verse. Well, he I don't know who lil Katharina meaning as Sevilla there are law will never make a way for the poof are on the Muslims.

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

Here comes a question that a lot of people have who might ask how can I last month I say that he would never make a way for them. Meaning they never be victorious and never overcome us. How can a law subpoena with Allah say this in the verse and then we look at the situation of the Muslims today.

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

The meaning of this is that we are an oma we are not countries with borders, as it is today.

00:21:23--> 00:22:06

This country in that country, we are all one oma one nation all around the world. So Allah subhana wa tada will never give them a way to conquer us all as an oma, even if some of our brothers have to go through hardships, and this is a test for them. And it tests for us to see if we will help them or not. May Allah help us in doing that. And the ninth point is that it's not always significant, the amount a lot of people they become scared of the enemies of Islam because they are superpowers and they can do this and that to us. But if you look in the verse when Allah subhana wa tada says, Come in Viet in kalila in vanilla, bad spirits and Kathy Rose mbeadh nilah por la Hamas, la Vereen.

00:22:07--> 00:22:38

How many of a small amount of people were victorious against a larger amount, and by the 11 by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And barely Allah will be with the patient. So in this verse, we see that lots of panels Allah mentions that a smaller group, how they can be victorious in a larger group, by their permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how many times have we seen through the history of Islam, for example, in the Battle of budder, when Allah subhanho wa Taala,

00:22:40--> 00:23:14

helped the Muslims to be victorious and they were a small amounts, maybe one third of the or less than one third of the amount, then we should have keen of Quraysh and they were still victorious. Even in the days we live. If you look at the terrorist attacks on Gaza, a few months back, and this small group was able to stand in the face of one of the strongest armies in the world who was with him and who was helping them. There's no explanation except for with the help of Allah subhanaw taala with our brothers, they were being attacked and bombed by these vicious terrorists.

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

That endpoint that Allah subhanho wa Taala points out to us in the Quran.

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

Is that the end of the enemies of Islam is that they will be defeated at all times. Fully lady nica furusato hola buenas Shona, Ella Johanna. bobbitt selmy had say to the disbelievers that you will be defeated and then gathered together and taken to jahannam. And what an evil place of rests May Allah protect us all from jahannam.

00:23:48--> 00:23:50

And the last points were mentioned

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

in the Quran when Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned to us that

00:23:57--> 00:24:38

a reminder when he said yeah, you Hello Dina Amano, may your domain calm and Dini he a sofa yet he left will be at home in your head boom while you're a grown up. Reminder from Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he says, Oh, you will believe whoever reverts from you on his religion, that Allah will come with a nation or with people that he loves and that they love him. And this is a reminder to us, we do not implement our religion, for the religion of Islam to victorious Allah subhanho wa Taala he does not need us. It does not need you and me. And if we do not implement the religion, then Allah will get rid of us and He will come with people who implement it, in order for the

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

religion, his religion to be victorious. And then the verse continues, and lo supernodes Allah, He shows us what is the description of these people who will be victorious those who strive for his religion. He says the little mini Isaiah Allen carefully that

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

They are humble towards the believer and powerful towards the disbeliever yuja. here doing a feasibility layer he will often Aloma tell him, they fight in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala they fight for the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they are not concerned with the blames of the critics, all of these 11 examples from the Quran to the fifth of the Nussle how to understand victory and Islam. And now we're going to talk about the ways or the means the reasons that help us becoming victorious as an oma.

00:25:33--> 00:26:13

And the first of these is that we implement and have fewer so heed the pure belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we only offer any act of worship solely to Allah, and that we fight the shoot of Kingdom, we should again, we fight those who join partners with Allah subhana wa Taala. And I don't mean fight that we go out with, we have to go out and shoot them down. And we can fight with our tongues by showing the truth. And with our pins doesn't mean we have to go out and shoot people. It's not what I'm saying. Because from the jihad is the Jihad of the tongue as well. As it came the Hadith and soon epidote was a prophet sallallahu Sallam said J Dilla. machete kina be unwelcome one

00:26:13--> 00:26:58

fusi come with LC Natty comb, to wage jihad against the disbelievers with yourself your money and with your tons because the Dow is a form of jihad. So implementing and having pure tawheed is the pure is the pure, and the only way for true success. And the only way to for us to have victory in Islam. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he focused on it so much in the beginning of Islam, he focused on the issue of tawheed. And that's why when it came time for the Muslims to strive and struggle for the religion, even if that meant dying, none of them had any problem with doing that because their heart was so filled and was so strong with the man. The second

00:26:58--> 00:27:02

thing which helps us as an omen, and achieving victory is

00:27:04--> 00:27:47

what are shift shifting, and Benny Rahim Allah used to always mention the importance of a tourist visa and a total BIA. And it tells you, it's basically like cleansing, or cleaning out. If you have a clearance sale. When you want when you're selling something in the marketplace. And you're in the soup, you're in the market and you want to get rid of a clearance you have a clearance sale, or a test via they would say an Arabic. So it's the cleanse what pollutions of the oma from what's happened to the oma of ship. Were so many people will claim the Muslim they practice shirt and call it Islam. And from bidet from innovation, how many people will claim to follow the Quran sooner, and

00:27:47--> 00:28:25

you'll find that the majority of what they practice is better as innovation in the religion. Also, all of the other evil acts when you go to Muslim countries now, how many people cheat you when you go to buy something in the marketplace? And if you look at how the Muslims were before, the largest Muslim population in the world, Indonesia, how do they become Muslims, they became Muslims, through the treatment of the businessmen to jail who went there from Yemen and other places around the Islamic world at that time, and how they used to treat them and how they would not lie to them, how they would not cheat them, and they became Muslims through this treatment, but the Muslim study,

00:28:25--> 00:29:08

unfortunately, they have left this and also if you look at the evil acts that Muslims do, now, when it comes to the reporting, as Dr. Zakir mentioned, the people who record a lot of these events, and those who record in Bollywood, a lot of them are Muslims, unfortunately, and they film that which is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also, if you look at the status of Muslim men, Muslim women, look at the hijab throughout the Muslim world, so many women not wearing proper hijab. Unfortunately, we see that the unprofor hijab has spread. And now it's becoming just what? covering up the head and what's below that they don't even look at that and then it heads not even covered

00:29:09--> 00:29:56

completely a lot of the time. So this this philosophy or this cleansing is what we need for the oma to get rid of all of this. And to start after that with what the ship called a tibia, educating educating the oma and this can be done in four simple steps. First of all, by by knowledge, and the importance of knowledge in Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was never asked or never told to ask for more of anything except for Rob busied nearly man, Allah subhanaw taala throughout the Quran, go tonight look in the Quran. In any or any order. The procession was never ordered to ask for more of something for Ziad that, except for of knowledge, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

wa sallam said Missouri de la Hopi Hey Ron Ufuk COVID de

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

that whoever a law wants good for that He grants him fick. He grants him understanding and knowledge of this religion. And we understand from this Hadith, that whoever Allah subhana wa tada does not want good for then

00:30:15--> 00:30:20

he does not grant him understanding of this religion, may Allah protect all of us from that. And after that,

00:30:21--> 00:30:57

it comes the armor, the implementation of the Islam, because it's not something we just learn in books and how many people have learned something about Islam, but they don't implement it. So they do not benefit from it. And you know, I feel the bulk of this, of the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah. And after we implement, as of last month, our Lord told us phylum and the hula Illa, Allah, we learn that he there's no Illa, except for him. So I know what's Allah, there's no deity worthy of worship, except for a law was still fully them back and then to make his teeth borrow from you the new seek forgiveness from your sins. So Allah subhanaw taala, he started first with what the

00:30:57--> 00:31:21

knowledge and then the Iman and then the implementation after that, and then after we have learned our religion, and we implement our religion and our lives, it comes to the third step, which is the dour fall into this religion. Because a Muslim wants, he knows the beauty he has. And he feels the hell our sweetness of Eman he wants to call other people to benefit from this as well.

00:31:22--> 00:32:04

And then after that, we must have patience of silver, because obviously anybody who calls to the Hulk, he will be tested. And that's when it came into Hades in the beginning of Islam, when one of the novellas said to the prophet SAW Selim as a disabled party, that I wish I was with you, when your people force you out when you force you out of Mecca. And he said, Will they force me out. And he said, Nobody has come with what you have come with, except that he has gone through hardships. So now, any Muslim who implements Islam, and cause to this religion of truth, no doubt he's going to be tested this the in many ways. And this is all to test our Eman And we are here in this dunya to be

00:32:04--> 00:32:49

tested. So this reminds us always remind ourselves, we're here to be tested, and Alo what test us all the time to see our true implementation of our religion. After this, we must focus on doing if we want to be victorious, focus on doing as many acts of worship and rabada. doing as much about in worship as possible. It came in the Hadith, and Sahih Muslim, when our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he said the ruble amalfitana to the end of the Hadith, when he told us to raise the fitting the calamities the hardships, to raise them, with what without men with deeds, meaning worship and abanda. And this is because these acts of worship are like a shield to us. When

00:32:49--> 00:33:31

the fittings come when the hardships come, the difficult times come when we're constantly doing a bad job. This helps us inshallah, and staying strong and staying firm during these hardships, and the most important types of worship, or the or the favorite, as it came in a howdy tomahto bootsy matabele Abdi ba, ba ba la misma foto to LA that my servant as it came to see when Allah said that my servant has does not become closer to me with anything more beloved to me than that which I have made compulsory upon him. Well, my is that the it's a thought of La Bete Noire, Phil had to head back. And then after the fight, obviously then now

00:33:32--> 00:33:55

that we've come closer to last month, it was a voluntary acts of prayer. And then after that, I'll remind myself and my brothers, when it comes to the acts of worship of God, that that one of the most important acts of worship is those acts of worship, which are what they call a bad day or a bad at the secret types of acts of worship.

00:33:57--> 00:34:05

The ones that nobody else knows this stuff also kind of wattana like the TM of Lail, praying the night prayer and giving sadaqa. And

00:34:07--> 00:34:50

if you look in the beginning of Islam, when the prophet SAW Selim, had his companions make the night prayer, and they had to pray in the beginning. And then it was voluntary after that. But when the prophet SAW him, you look at him calling his companions to make the night prayer emmalin. And if any of you have ever experienced the MLA, if Allah has blessed you to be from the people who play the MLA, or even one time or two times in your life, you got up and you said, Let me pray to rockets for Allah subhanho wa Taala. That, you know, there's no feeling like this in the whole world. And that's why some of the some of our pious predecessors before us from our scholars, that they used to say,

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

Lola, Elaine mohabbatein, COVID dunya. There it was now for the night meaning because what he's going to be in prayer, I would not want to stay in this dunya

00:35:01--> 00:35:20

I'm Pablo de la. And he mentioned that if it weren't for three things, he would not want to stay in this dunya. One of them was the night prayer, the MLA, the other one was the Jihad disability law. And the third one was sitting in the circles of knowledge of aliens.

00:35:22--> 00:35:59

And this affects, why is it so important? It'll clear my lane and these type of Warships are excited to see it because the effect that it has on your Eman And look at this haba when it came time for them, to strive and struggle for Islam, and to die for Islam in Medina, they were ready. Because of the pure oratory, they had, first of all, and because of these types of acts of worship, when they will get up in prayer, the night prayer because this gives you a callus. Now when we go to the masjid, or work and we go make will do and we pray with everybody else everybody else sees you. But at night when everybody's sleeping, nobody can hear you. You get up from a beautiful night's sleep.

00:36:00--> 00:36:13

You wake yourself up, and then you go to pray the night prayer. This is the type of class that we need. If we were going to shell out to be victorious as an oma. And obviously, as you've heard in several of the

00:36:14--> 00:36:20

one of the key ways to victory is through jihad. And Jihad

00:36:21--> 00:36:41

has become a word misused in the media, and these days, and it's something that the Muslims are attacked by that they fear that there's something called jihad in our religion Alhamdulillah Yes, there is no we're not scared to say it, that jihad is part of our religion. However, some of

00:36:43--> 00:36:50

the people who claim to be representing Islam, and some of their actions, which they call jihad,

00:36:51--> 00:37:30

they are not the true jihad. And it's not a true understanding to jihad. But when people defend their lands, the Muslims defend their lands all around the world, no doubt this is jihad. And we say this as jihad. When it comes to the other form of jihad. When we actually go and wage war as a Muslim oma, we have to have the Imam to do this. Also, some of the things we can benefit from and being victorious as an oma is benefiting from some of the bad things that we see as an oma, for example, what happened in Gaza recently, with the terrorist attacks on our brothers and Gaza. When the cartoons when the made fun of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did the

00:37:30--> 00:37:41

Muslims do around the world, even here in India, all around the world? What do they do? They went out in the streets with their signs, and they were upset, and they rioted. And they were very upset with what they were seeing.

00:37:43--> 00:37:51

This is a good thing. And it shows the love they have for their brothers. It shows the love they have for their beloved Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. However,

00:37:53--> 00:38:29

we don't want this to be a one day thing. We want this to be able to what to continue after that. Because the most important thing is that we implement act on our Islam if we want to be victorious, so it's upon us and those people who claim when they see the Muslims coming back to their Deen during these hardships or these things that seem to be evil and bad, that they benefit from these times and calling the Muslims back to practicing their religion. Also, we must realize that everybody, whatever he does to help the Muslim Ummah, that is unfair, he is on good net everybody because we are an oma look at the word oma, we are a whole nation, not everybody is going to be a

00:38:29--> 00:39:06

lecturer or a daddy, or somebody who was a scholar in Islam, even though they can try. But we need doctors, we need engineers, we need mothers who raise the children properly, when he fathers who do their role as a father in Islam. So whatever you're doing for Islam, if you're passing out a pamphlet, even if you look at it as being something small, remember, that's good and continue to do it and always try to do more, and inshallah This will help us be in victorious as well. And from where the key points is that we must come together as a Muslim oma, if we want to be successful and be victorious. And this is important we see in the time we live in the big picture, when the enemies

00:39:06--> 00:39:44

Islam are everywhere attacking Islam, that we must come together as one as a Muslim nation. And this does not mean that we put aside our differences and come together and that we agree upon, because this is not the message of the prophets that Allahu Allah He was seldom is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saw something from his companions, that when it gets Islam, he did not say okay, at least they're Muslims at home, they let's let's let's slide, he will tell them that this was a bottle it was full. So there was a mistake, it was a hopper and he would have fixed it right away I listened to him. So this does not mean that we are quiet on mistakes that we see. We are quiet on things that

00:39:44--> 00:40:00

go against the Quran and Sunnah and let them slide. If we see something which goes against the Quran and Sunnah, then we must say it, but we also must have at the same time, the fit of the time that we live in, and the hardships that we're going through as a Muslim Ummah and we must show that we are one

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

In the face of the enemies of Islam

00:40:07--> 00:40:11

wanting to be successful, we have to leave on doing that which is

00:40:12--> 00:40:34

that which is haram. What is apparently haram from the acts we do and say it also of the actions that are held on in our hearts. How many Muslim business today are built on Hallam or a portion of his head um he says that which is that um so if you want to be successful whenever be successful unless we leave that which is haram and displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:40:35--> 00:41:12

And then also if we want to be successful as an oma, we must race to make Toba repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because when the time comes, and I believe I heard shut up there but he mentioned as I was coming in, that you'll find a Muslim never comes to the masjid unless you lose his job. And then he's always there. He's always praying he's always asking Allah subhanho wa Taala. about that so he can be helped him in his job. So if we want to help for oma for the Muslims, then we have to repent so last month Allah and be with him and be doing that which is pleasing to Him and stay away from that which is displeasing to him. subhana wa tada in order for the Nasir for the victory to

00:41:12--> 00:41:44

come in shallow Tada. And last but not least, one of the most important things for us to be victorious is that we follow the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because everybody claims they have the way the path to victory, the path to for us to be successful as Muslims, but if it's not, any methodology is not the methodology of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then it is not a successful methodology, and it's something that will be rejected. This is shortly what I want to remind myself and my brothers have

00:41:45--> 00:41:52

about the path to victory. And now inshallah we'll open the floor for questions. Allahu Allah masala cinema Baraka Nabina Muhammad

00:41:53--> 00:41:57

Mashallah Joseph Abdur Rahim Allah coffee under the law.

00:41:59--> 00:42:40

This is that time again now brothers and sisters for your questions. Sharla. So, please be reminded one question, if it shorts, please state your name, profession and make sure the question is on the topic as well please. So let's start with this. This is this time question system. I said that one a como rahmatullah wa barakato. My name is Basra. My question to you is, as mentioned in your introduction, that you are a teacher of Arabic language. Can you tell me if I should learn Arabic as a language? Only Quranic Arabic? Allah

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

wa Salatu was Salam ala rockmelon Allah, Allah ah Marina VIERA Mohammed to Allah Allah, he was a big Marine, you must learn Arabic as a language, not just the Quranic Arabic because when you learn Arabic as a language, your understanding of the language itself will become stronger and it's not just enough to learn the Quranic and if you if you mean the classic Arabic, gentle Quran and the Sunnah, then that is what you should learn the classic urban not the Arabic dialects that have been spread throughout the the Islamic world unfortunately, but you need to have a strong grasp on Arabic language you must learn all of the aspects of the language anything has to do with the language you

00:43:18--> 00:43:28

must learn it. So you can understand the Farrar and understand the sooner inshallah Allah. Okay, question from the back there, please. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Dear brother.

00:43:29--> 00:43:34

My name is Matthew dinars. I am from tumkur. Karnataka, I am a marketing executive.

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

My question is to you.

00:43:39--> 00:43:52

Do you explain the concept of a job in Islam as Islam has conditions to both genders? That is man and woman? Can you explain its definition?

00:43:53--> 00:44:33

I would exactly you ask him his job regarding his job for the men and women. Pardon me for men and women. Yeah, for both men and men. Okay, wager we should wear which cage up they should wear his job in Islam, they would use it for both genders. Yeah, both genders. Gentlemen, man's and men. Okay, he's asking about the concept of hijab and what is the proper hijab? The proper hijab obviously, is not something like we see today with pants. This is not allowed tight clothing, it must be worn by some scholars, it must be from the head down, or it must be a garment from the head down and then one from the shoulders, which covers completely it must be very baggy, it cannot be tight. It cannot

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

be something where you can see on the other side transparent, it cannot be something has Zina on it, where it tracks where there's colors or flowers and like that, that attracts the people, it must be something very plain and simple. And these are the basic conditions of the hijab. For the woman, it must be very long and very baggy and very modest. And it goes all the way down to the ground. It doesn't go above the ankles, and then she wears socks. He goes all the way down to the ground as it came in the Sunnah of the prophet so they sell them and this is the proper hijab does she have to cover her face on

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

There's a difference of opinion of the scholars. And obviously the best choice, if there's a difference of opinion is that she covers her face completely, this is the complete hijab, if not the only thing she can uncover on the other opinion, is her hands, not from here or there, or all the way down just these from here and her face. That's the other opinion. But obviously, it's better if she covers her face completely. That's in general, the basic conditions of hijab, and the outer of the man is from his, his bellybutton here, all the way down to the knee. And also, it must be something that doesn't mean we walk around without our shirts are something that's not proper. Also,

00:45:38--> 00:46:13

it must be something that's not had doesn't have imitation of the Kufa if something is only the dress of the Khufu or if it's something for example, you have now like suits, people say this is the shampoo of the Cooper's imitating the coolfire. But this has become something that is accepted and throughout all of the worlds. Now if you go to some type of certain dress that only people wear, it is a non Muslim, then it becomes hot on food awareness them. But for men, the dress, it's very simple, very basic. And also it should not be tight. Another thing that danger about wearing the western style clothes today is that a lot of Muslim men, they were very tight pants. And when they

00:46:13--> 00:46:49

make this to do this a lot, it doesn't look very good. And it's not proper when you make use to do like that. So you have to be careful if you want to wear western style clothes that you wear it. Like the baggy style of pants are baggy er than Western styles. Because if you look at it throughout Islamic history, this is the answer. The Muslim men used to wear a baggy type of pants, like they were here today India or in Pakistan, or even in Turkey and someplace in Syria, they still wear these pants today. So you should have a baggy or tight pants, and you should have a Muslim identity. Now it's important that you know now that when you wear your clothes you're representing or when you

00:46:49--> 00:47:18

live your life, you're representing Islam. So you need to at least look like a Muslim through your beard through this. And how do we how do we know now we're going down the street if somebody is a Muslim or non Muslim, except for the way he looks, obviously the woman when she wears her hijab, you know immediately she's a Muslim woman. But when a Muslim man he shaved his beard and he looks just like the wants to look like the Westerners you don't know as you Hindus as a Christian as a Muslim you don't know. So Muslim man he wants to be different because the provinces have ordered us to be different with our beards and how we dress as you like I said it should be a bag ears type style, if

00:47:18--> 00:47:58

you're going to wear the western style. Or if you wear the Indian or Pakistani style, then that's no problem. That's good. Just knucklehead wear the coffee provoca frontier slum Welcome. My name is Muslim Milicic nama management student. So my question to you is the media is constantly being successful in portraying a wrong image of Islam in the name of terrorism. So how can we remove the misconceptions? Well, we're doing it right now. Hopefully, inshallah? Well, this conference is one of the things we do. And it's important. First of all, through the actions of Muslims, we implement Islam, as Muslims, and we act upon our Islam, the people will see for themselves, that what is

00:47:58--> 00:48:32

portrayed to them is not true, is very important. Even my family now when I met with some of my family members, they probably had a lot of misconceptions. But when they sat down with me for several days, after several years, they saw that I was not a terrorist, and all this, and Danny is somebody who looked down on women and all of these misconceptions they have about the Muslims. So it starts with us, implementing our religion and practicing our religion, and being productive members of society at the same time. It just for us, it doesn't mean that we're practicing religion, we can't be productive members of society, because we can, in fact, some of them Muslim to some of the

00:48:32--> 00:49:11

most productive members of their societies all around the world. So this is this is the first thing. And then the other thing is if you pass out books, you give tapes or CDs or whatever you give to people and to show them the truth, you invite the non Muslims to events like this, you invite them to sit with other Muslims that can can explain to them about some of the misconceptions. But if we were to implement Islam properly in our lives, this would show that people that what they're hearing is false or that it's not true. Okay, let's talk about their Salam aleikum. wa rahmatullah. My name is Taha. And I'm a film student. So my question is more of a personal query, I want to know, when

00:49:11--> 00:49:48

you please tell me what are the best ways in which I can utilize my profession, following the sun and the Slavic ways, and the ways in which my profession, my going to be professional can benefit the society. This is a very dangerous profession, because there's a lot of good you can do with it. But the majority of the options that you will have will be evil options. So now I'm doing what the people are doing here now. And if they utilize this, and they do this type of thing, these type of events, and they taped lectures and Islamic programs, which are beneficial for the Muslims is a very good profession, but it's a very dangerous one, like I said, so you have to be careful because most

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

of the doors that are open to you in the future will be doors that are not productive or not good and evil doors, because that's what most of the film industry is. But if you want to do this, you

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

To study this profession, just make sure that you only do it. And that's what helps yourself and rewarding you and stay away from that which will be sin, and also things that will help your own Munch. Hello tala.

00:50:12--> 00:50:22

My name is Omar Pharaoh. And I'm from Bangalore, check my question to you is, you mentioned about how Islam can be victorious. And

00:50:23--> 00:51:14

we often see in the media that Muslims are termed as terrorists, etc. But, I mean, it doesn't necessarily mean that we do that. But when it actually comes to oppression on Muslims, for example, in Palestine, etc. Why don't we have a centralized? Muslim, gorilla? Wherever we find open oppression on Muslim countries? Why can't Muslims all around the world volunteer and organize ourselves as a force where we know that this is for sure oppression? And like I'm we've fired as one oma. So can you? Is this feasible? And if not, what are the shortcomings and the restrictions that are not allowing us to do this? Obviously, this is something if there was a Muslim, a true Muslim

00:51:14--> 00:51:52

nation, a true Muslim government now, this would be their job. And it's not our job as individuals to form a rebel, any rebels for guerrilla warfare that we send out whenever the Muslims are being oppressed. If there was a true Muslim country right now, which really practice Islam, which there is not unfortunately, you'll find some Muslim countries who practice 30%, some 20, and some maybe a little more, some a little less. But unfortunately, we don't have a true Muslim nation today, if we were to have this, it would be their job to defend the other Muslim nations. So it would be a good idea in reality, if we had the Muslim nation do it, but unfortunately, we do not. That goes back to

00:51:52--> 00:52:22

the Muslim governments. And we always have to understand that when you try to take something into your own hands, and it's without the government, they're usually not going to be successful, and it usually causes more harm than good. So we don't want to be and one of the points I had mentioned here, I didn't mention it was that we do not want to, as you say pick the fruit before it's ready. Just as you when you go to a tree, you do not pick the fruit before it's ready or before it's ripe. Also, when it comes to the issues of jihad, and this, it's important that we teach whether a time we need to teach the Muslims and Muslim are very ignorant in their religion, and then if the time for

00:52:22--> 00:52:34

Jihad comes, inshallah, there will be no problem for that within Muslim state. But in this situation, I do not think it's a logical solution in the situation we're in now. Okay.

00:52:35--> 00:53:23

Question from a brother at the front, Islamic Comm. My name is Mohammed, I have a question for you regarding one of the articles which I happen to read recently about many Muslims in Iraq, turning 80s and similarly in Palestine, where women and teenagers are resorting to drugs, you know, to sort of numb their senses and from the depression which surrounds them every day. So my question to you is, how can we, as their brothers and faith and scholars like yourself and others, what can we do to, you know, provide moral support? Shouldn't we be doing that because Allah tells us in the front to exhort each other to the truth and to patients about come become an atheist and never heard this

00:53:23--> 00:53:48

aloha item? I don't know why somebody would do that. But a lot of but when it comes to resorting to drugs, and what have you, I could see that being a way out for a lot of weak people who are not practicing their religion, someone who's not really practicing Islam, this might be the way out for them. If somebody's not going to return to the Quran and return to practicing his religion, then this could be a way out for them. And what we can do one of the main weapons that we have is to do

00:53:49--> 00:54:25

for our brothers and sisters and unfortunately, this is the weapon of the believer as the privatized lm said, and we do not use this weapon and the only time we really use it sometimes is in Ramadan. When when Torah we and the mom is making to do and supply our brothers have told us that they feel this when they are fighting they feel the effects of this do outlets and Ramadan and they wish the Muslims to make up for them all the time to all throughout the year in the same way they do. And then all strive for Islam, all of us we want to implement Islam in our lives. We want to strive for Islam in our lives. There's a way we can help the Muslims around the world when they can do it for

00:54:25--> 00:54:47

them. Well lo Allah Okay, Mashallah. Question from the sisters, please. Assalamualaikum The question is, what peaceful means can be Muslims adopt to defend Islam against false accusations of subjugation of women or not giving women their rights through jihad. Jihad of the tongue, though,

00:54:48--> 00:55:00

that we had we had with our tongues we show the falsehood of what these people are saying. And when a Muslim women talk out, they speak out. Now I can say now that my wife's had

00:55:00--> 00:55:33

In her hijab, and she's happy being a housewife, but when they hear her say that they hear the women say that, and this is something that's been popping more popular now, when Muslim women speak, they're happy wearing their hijab. They're happy. The women who are raising their children and being in the household. So then when it comes to the women's issues, the role of the woman is more important than role of a man. Because when I come and talk to non Muslims now they're like, yeah, yeah, he's just saying that. I'm saying that our Muslim are happy and they like who they are, when they actually hear it from our Muslim women, and they stand up against these false accusations. This

00:55:33--> 00:56:16

is actually much stronger. So your role as women in Islam is actually bigger than ours. And Allah Allah. Okay, another question from the back please. Solo Adi Kumara, Fatah wa barakato My name is Mohammad nurudeen. I'm a student from Malaysia. In your lecture you mentioned about Shaheed My question is, how can we die as a Shahid in this modern age of 21st century does not convert and in dying of Shaheed is dying in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala and obviously that one no source when it's mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah being Shaheed it's usually in the act of jihad when you're fighting and war for Islam. However, there's other things that you could do that you could be

00:56:16--> 00:56:57

a Shaheed for example, even any, hopefully a low accept from us if we're giving Dawa and we are killed and that line that maybe you accept this sheet. But in general, when you look at the source, the text of the when it talks about being Shaheed in the path of Allah subhanaw taala, it's on the battlefield, but what's important is that a Muslim always has the intention to stand up and to die for his religion at any time, under any circumstances, for so long. Okay, we'll take another question from the front here. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My name is Stella Ansari, I'm from Nagpur. I'm in faculty. My question is that some of the Islamic practicing group says that

00:56:57--> 00:57:33

it is confirmed that Islam will be victorious, it will enter every house. So it is not important to spread Islam to present Islam to non Muslims. Is it? What is your opinion? This is obviously uncorrected because how can it spread? If we do not show Islam to other people, it will enter but it's going to enter through our efforts. And that's why I mentioned in the verse that if we do not implement our religion, that Allah he will get rid of us and He will come with other people who implement the religion and then spread the religion of Islam, in the province of SLM when you look in his pseudonym, when he went to Islam to spread in Medina, he didn't look at it like this, like

okay, it's gonna spread throughout the world, so we don't have to do anything he sent Musab eunomia, to Medina to call the people of Medina to Islam. The first teacher, the new Muslims, who had become Muslim to teach them Islam did use them for an and then to teach the non Muslims about Islam and to call them to Islam as well until Islam entered every house in Medina that everybody became but at some point, one person or more in every household in Medina became Muslim after that, so it's through our efforts in it so that's not correct, that it's just gonna spread and we sit back and do nothing. Okay, we'll take one more senior citizen the bat consola assalamu, Aleikum Jazakallah

Shaikh for explaining the path to victory. I want to ask you that can you explain us the Islamic way of celebrating victory? I don't recall anything that he had to celebrate I know I know we do as you may think there was a lot but other than that a lot of money we do the sugar that's in the center. Anything that good that happens to you. If you make any students sugar for that this will be the proper way to celebrate victory. Also making tech be thanking Allah subhanaw taala this would be a proper way all of this inshallah but other than that, aloha Tim, I don't know anything else. Well, no, no. Thank you very much for coming. Take care, and we'll see you again soon. salaam aleikum wa
