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

What is really must be the Oxford to the Muslims? What does it really mean to us? And what kind of spiritual connection are we supposed to have to masjidul upfa and the Blissett land around that my brothers in Islam? Before I begin answering these questions, I wanted to be clear about one thing. And that is and be clear with me on this point. That a Masjid is never holier and more secret than a human life. And so it's wrong to say that our only concern for Palestine is because of Masuda lochsa. As a matter of fact, one Palestinian life, one Syrian life, one Burmese life, one Muslim life is far more precious and more secret and more honor more honorable in the sight of Allah

00:00:45--> 00:00:55

subhanho wa Taala than any Masjid on Earth, including Masuda lochsa. As a matter of fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, In a minute,

00:00:56--> 00:01:37

I'll cover that the believer is more honorable. His blood is more secret in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala than the governor itself. And what is the honor that Allah so we shall give the Kaaba so that you can understand what Allah made for the believer, Allah azza wa jal, he says regarding a mystery that haraam will gather he said when you read fi be ill heard in Devon nosy comin as I've been alene a lot of social said concerning and most of you that have that anyone who intends evil or harm in that place, Allah social would inflict upon him, and he warns him of a severe intense continuous punishment. And that is just for the one who intends evil in honestly that

00:01:37--> 00:02:20

harm. And just like that, the one who intends to harm the believer, Allah azza wa jal has promised him an intense punishment. Imagine the punishment of the one who not only intended and planned the attacks against the believers in the Muslims, but rather he carried out his evil, and he carried out his harm against the believers by slaughtering them, massacring them, bombing them and then massage it, driving them out of their lands, stealing their land and stealing them assertion. No doubt, no doubt their punishment is severe and intense smell Allah subhanho wa Taala destroy the persons in their follows in their allies, my brothers in Islam. Let's now reconnect with Masuda lochsa. Let's

00:02:20--> 00:03:01

reconnect with baitul mock this Jerusalem, and let's speak about its importance. And what is the road back to it in order to restore and restore this land back to the Muslims above? The Allahu anhu, a companion of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked him au Masjid in Buda fil a well, what was the first Masjid that was constructed on earth? For Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he responds and he says, I'll miss you don't how long? It must be that Haram in Makkah was the first to be constructed. Then I asked him which after that, he said, and masjidul up for the first Masjid It was called that because it is far

00:03:01--> 00:03:44

away from MK fo It was called the furthest Masood Masuda Luxor, then Abu Hassan Allahu alayhi wa sallam come Canada in Houma. How many years were between the construction when the VI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Our Buena Center for years. And what we learned from this, my brothers in Islam is that Mazel oxide is the second Masjid on Earth. So it is a very early Masjid and our history with it is a very long history. And it was constructed by Adam alayhis salam, who also constructed constructed the garb of 40 years before it, Adam alayhis salam was the first one to construct the Kaaba and 40 years after he constructed alma zoodle Uppsala, and in some generations

00:03:44--> 00:04:27

It was his son Chief, who constructed and Masuda lochsa Ibrahim Alayhi Salam came later on, and he rebuilt the cover. So a lot of social says, Well, if you're following your blog, he will collide it was already built. He just came in rebuilt it and reconstructed it. And Ibrahim alayhis salaam, he builds the gabaa alongside with his son, and years later when he travels to do Jerusalem Subhan Allah, He rebuilds Jerusalem and he rebuilds Monsieur the Luxor alongside his his other son, his hair color he set up an industry that haraam will Masuda lochsa they make two thirds of the holiest massage in the world. So how long each time Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to they will knock this

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

to the land of Jerusalem. He refers to it as a blizzard land and levy bow and Lottie Ballack Nafisa and not only Allah subhanho wa Taala bless the land of Jerusalem, but he also blessed what's around it because of it allowed so shall he says Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah Allah min and mercy that how long it will Masjid Al Aqsa and levy bow rechner hollow and must see the locks of the land that we also blessed whatever is around it with Nell Josie Allahu Allah. He has a very, very beautiful reflection with this. He says that Ibrahim Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

He said um he sanctified Mecca. Yeah. And he declared Mecca as being a holy land. When the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sanctified the Medina. And then he said, and Allah subhanho wa Taala took it upon himself to sanctify Bay to knock this to sanctify Jerusalem, because Allah subhanho wa Taala always ascribes and attributes the bulk of the blessing of that man to himself, as he says, Allah.

00:05:27--> 00:05:43

We blessed and in so many parts of the Quran, he mentions, this is the last version who blessed and Masjid or unbeatable knock this way and in the time of Masada, he said, and this is going further now in the history with the time of Musa alayhis salam and burning Israel.

00:05:44--> 00:06:25

When Mussolini said I'm embedding Islam in were rescued from Iran, and they hit it towards Jerusalem. Musa alayhis salam he commanded Peninsula in 600,000 of them with him to enter Jerusalem, enter it and there's no fee and that is Allah subhanho wa Taala his commandment for you, but they were scared and that they they they did not enter because of a pole militia buried there was a tough nation inside. They got scared they said they must say we're not going to enter because of what's inside Subhan Allah, Allah azza wa jal as a result because they disobeyed Allah, Allah forbid upon them and bathe and muck this for four years. And then in these four years, they were made to be lost

00:06:25--> 00:07:05

in the desert. They were wandering in the desert, I had no idea where they going. Why? Because they disobeyed the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Musa alayhis salam also suffered because of their disobedience. And he too was forbidden from Bay to knock this. And this is the very same situation of our situation. Let's see what Musa alayhis salam did and imitate the same thing he did. Musa alayhis salam was forbidden from beta lock this for years and during those 40 years he died. What did he do during these 40 years? That is the same thing were supposed to do and imitate. It is narrated in Sahaja was a Muslim, that musalla he said, he approached death during those 40 years

00:07:05--> 00:07:52

that he was in the desert. And Sal Allah He made it. So Allah Maha, near whom in Erbil mocha Desa Rome yet and he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala since I can't get into Jerusalem, Oh Allah, bring me close to it. Let me be just a stone's throw away from it. Let me just be able to see it before I die. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that if I was there right now, I could show you his grave. He's buried beneath a road under the red dome, just outside of Jerusalem was Subhana Allah Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says to us that Musa alayhis salaam did Hirsch, Yanni he went to Mecca and he saw the Kaaba, but even then, look where his heart is. It is longing for

00:07:52--> 00:08:31

Jerusalem. This is the connection that we're supposed to have with beighton mark this and how many times have you and I made a vow for Allah to bring us close to fatal muck this May Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring us a stone flew away from beta lock this live alone asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for us to pray inside, for after Musa alayhis salam is time and under the leadership of you shall have at noon which is what's the servant boy have Musa alayhis salam, they managed to conquer and restore, they will knock this and they entered. And obviously Yanni once again when the people lost their Deen and when they lost their laws and they did not apply and abide by the laws of Allah

00:08:31--> 00:09:06

Subhana Allah, Allah took this land back away from them, and that was by the entrance of share loot and his army and so they took it from the believers. And years later, the believers under the leadership of balut were able to reclaim baitul muck this once again and Paulo it was nj loot was killed by the Buddha he set up. And of course they claim the Holy Land after this years go by the son of their word, which is today man Allah, he said, he inherits leadership and Prophethood from his father, and he rebuilds Masuda lochsa when the beast Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says in the authentic hadith

00:09:07--> 00:09:49

when Suleiman Allah he said I'm finished the building and the construction of mosquito Aqua, he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala for three things. And Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him two of these things. And we hope that Allah azza wa jal has also granted him the third as an abyssal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said mean to the third one. And what was the thing that he asked for? He asked the Lord subhanho wa Taala. Firstly, to give him sound, wisdom and judgment that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with and he was given that the second he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala for a unique and special kingdom, that is not befitting for anyone that comes after him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

gave him this and what was his third request? And he asked the most of whom are to Allah and listen to the virtue of Masuda. lochsa. He asked Allah that

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

If any person was to leave his house with the intention of praying at masjidul oxer, and no other intention just to go and pray that, that they would leave from there so that purified from all their sins, the day their mother gave birth to them, this is the reward of harsh, harsh I mean, he killed me while this is the reward of how, in other words, he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala, that any prayer in must you will also be given the same reward as in harsh when the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, and we asked Allah that He has been given this. In other words, in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said me into this.

00:10:43--> 00:11:24

And this is why I opened the Allahu anhu. He used to go all the way from Medina can imagine all the way from Medina all the way to Jerusalem, just to pray to God and mercy of the Luxor and he wouldn't even drink a cup of water in Jerusalem, just so that he doesn't break that intention that I'm only going there for so that to earn that reward for this is what Sulaiman Allah He said, I'm asked for and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us with a Salah at Masuda lochsa and during the lifetime of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he made an extra he made an oxide, his Qibla for the night prayers and his worship. That was the Qibla of the Muslims at the beginning. And one night

00:11:25--> 00:11:44

as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sleeping next to the Kaaba gibreel alehissalaam comes to him and he opens his chest and he takes out his heart, and he pours inside of it an email while hikma faith and wisdom to reassure the heart of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:11:45--> 00:12:09

and he's adopted take him on an incredible physical journey. Allah subhanho wa Taala says sapan Olivia sala de la isla Mira and masjidul have Elon Musk up so lovey Ballack now Hola, lunaria hoomin Tina, he's about to go on an incredible journey, both physically with his body and his soul. Because a lot of social says bounty he's entire slave.

00:12:10--> 00:12:20

And a lot of social is going to show him from his miraculous science and law. So he speaks about the mosquito oxide and he says a lovey Ballack. Now how level the one that we blessed around,

00:12:21--> 00:12:46

even others are the Allahu anhu. He says, you know why Allah blessed that land? He said, You know why? This is the reason he says because there is not a single inch. There is not a single inch in Jerusalem, except that an angel stood there in worship, or there was a prophet that worship Allah in that area, or there is a prophet that is buried in that area. This is why it became blessed.

00:12:47--> 00:13:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to take the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He's going to take him to that same place that he's blessed, and gibreel alehissalaam he comes down, and he brings with him an animal called al buraq. And this animal is so fast that with every step it reaches the end of your eyesight, Phil Brock got anxious, it got worried he got nervous, then Brock an animal we should read alehissalaam he said, relax, calm down. There has never been a more honorable man that has written on top of you. And it come down and relaxed. We used to have to lie you have to realize my brothers, that Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He could have taken an additional Allahu Allah, he'll send

00:13:29--> 00:14:07

them straight to the heavens, they could have happened. But he did it. He took him to Jerusalem. He took him to mercy, the Luxor. He went there, because there's something special about it. There's something important about it. Whenever you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says continuing that narration. He says when we arrived to Jerusalem chabrier Allah he said I'm obviously it was with him. jabril pointed to the wall and the wall split in half. And he titled buraq in the middle of that all so how the lower Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is witnessing all this. Then the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, I entered the mosquito lochsa and I prayed to God. And when I

00:14:07--> 00:14:22

finished from the two I got, I raised my head, and I saw all the prophets there in front of me. Imagine Ibrahim alayhis salam, Suleiman Allah He said, I'm the one who built the nursery, the Luxor, the mother, you said, Mr. bata, you said I'm

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

the one who wish to come ne and Monsieur Accra. He sees them there. And they were waiting for me. Osama Salam says they were waiting for me to take my position and to lead them in Salah. And I was shy. So she breathed Allah He said, I'm cane and he took by my hand, and he took me all the way until he put me in front of them until I lead them in Salah. And this is the only time all the prophets gathered in such a manner and he led them in sola. And this is what made the oma for Sol Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Hello Martin. Oh, goodness, the greatest of nations that was ever that ever came adults because

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

We let the prophets in for that. And then the prophesizing from there went up to the heavens got the commandment of a Salah. He came down, and he went to his people in Mecca and he began to explain to them what had happened and they did not believe him. So they began to ask him questions about Jerusalem, and he couldn't remember obviously, so many things were happening with him, until Allah subhanho wa Taala brought in front of him the image of Jerusalem will Masuda Luxor and every single minor detail they asked him about, he was able to answer so panela after that absorb the Allahu anhu. In a hadith he says that one time we were sitting around the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa

00:15:39--> 00:16:02

sallam, and we asked him Allah so Allah which is better, they don't knock this or the house or the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam which one is better? For Nabi? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, so I have two famous GDF bloomin arbury Salatin fee on an airman masala Hua. Now besides salami said, One salad in my Masjid one selected Masjid nabawi

00:16:03--> 00:16:49

is better than for prayers in Masuda lochsa Jani the reward of praying in Masuda upsize 250 and that is the authentic narration. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said concerning Monsieur Azza wa, JAL masala, who and what a beautiful place it is to pray. And he said, and listen to this hadith how powerful it is, he said, and there will come a time. It says though, in the VSA law, he was in love, he knows that our time will come, in which the believers will be deprived from us for a very long time, just like today, he said, a time will come that it will be more beloved for a person to just have a small piece of land, the size of a rope that is used to tie a horse to have a small

00:16:49--> 00:17:30

piece of land, where he can look at masjidul upfa, where he's able to look at Mercy. And that would be better for him than the entire wall than that which is in it, just a small piece of land, not where you can pray and miss you the Luxor rather where you can see unless you're the Luxor that would be more beloved to him than having the entire world and everything that is inside of this world. In other words, the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is validating our emotions, that the believers will be barred from this place. However, they would love it so much that this would be their dream. They will live wherever they are in their palaces, in their houses wherever they are on

00:17:30--> 00:17:38

Earth, but they are crying at night, because they want to be able to see Masuda lotsof This is the love that we're supposed to have from us.

00:17:39--> 00:18:05

And this is the same love that the companions robiola, one whom had for Masuda Luxor, and Yanni the vessel Allahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of Fatah Makkah on the day of the conquest of Mecca, when they were traveling from Medina to Naka, and he had the companions with him, and they were heading towards Mecca. A man said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said the Allah in in adultery lay in further Halawa Allah.

00:18:06--> 00:18:48

And also Leah Phoebe will knock this hirakata in. He said, Oh prophet of Allah, I have made an oath to Allah, that if he opens NACA for us, I'm going to go pray to Allah Azza wa, he's going to Mecca, which its virtue is better than Masuda. lochsa. But listen, look to what he's saying. For Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam he said to him, suddenly how hoonah pray here pray and not go for open by going there for he said the other solar line. And I said, I want to pray there. For notice I send it to him pre here. He said that assume I want to pray that for maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Shut Naka even do what you want. This is a burden you've placed on yourself. But this was

00:18:48--> 00:19:29

there enough promise you that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught them Yanni Subhana Allah, wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during his life? What was his effort in reclaiming Masuda lotsa, he prepared the army of Osama zadara the Allahu anhu he prepared that army and he sent it towards that area so that he can come come to the Luxor and bring it back in the hands of the Muslims. When the sallallahu alayhi wasallam died and he did not see that being achieved. Then Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu his time came. And what did he do? What kind of efforts did he put to replace and restore mercy the Luxor he sent as well the army have also lost the army of semaglutide he sent

00:19:29--> 00:19:39

it again. And it wasn't conquered at this time. It was only conquered after this at amaravati Allahu anhu. His time in where Yanni after was conquered. And the keys were about to be given what

00:19:41--> 00:20:00

was their house were there. And Yani, the armies were outside the doors and the gates of Jerusalem, and the Romans and the Empire of the Romans and so on. They did not want to give the keys of the Gates of Jerusalem except hapa because of what they heard of him. He said we don't give the keys except

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

To your leader, bring him will surrender and we'll give him the keys. For they said to me, Robert Allahu anhu was at Medina. They said come and take the keys from the Romans they're about to give us the keys so we can enter battle knock this for our ob Allahu anhu. He came, he came, and he is closed that he was wearing had about 17 to 20 patches in it. And he was on a camel and he took one servant boy with him. And as they were traveling, the Romans, they wanted to honor all of the Allahu anhu. So they rolled out a very long red carpet for him. And they prepared a huge reception and a ceremony for him. This is not an easy event, we're going to adopt the hand over the keys of

00:20:38--> 00:21:20

Jerusalem, or amaravati Allahu anhu. As he approaches Jerusalem, he gets there and he has his boy who he had agreed with him that I will travel half the way on the horse on the camel, and you travel the other half of the camel and I will pull it and as they get close to Jerusalem, it happened to be that Omar Abdullah who I know is the one walking and his boy is on the camel. And as they get close there is it's Jani as a unable Josie Rahim Allah He mentions he was Marie and so his his clothes became mud and they got there they got close. And upper Aveda. He sees him in this style. He's coming with a camel. He's got holes in his clothes. It's all dirty or it's all muddy. He's walking

00:21:20--> 00:22:07

and he's not writing about Aveda said to him, you've embarrassed us. You've humiliated us take my ride it's better than your ride. Go on top of it and take these clothes and wear them it's better than your clothes. For he said to him and these are the famous words and these are words we'll know he if we understood we know what the way back to the little mark this is. He said to him your other Aveda he said in the Lucha zenabis Islam family zetten rereleased me as a Lola. He said Allah, Allah has honored us with Islam. And if we were to seek on other than Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala would humiliate us. And so Omar, Allah who explains the way back to beta knock this is with your Islam.

00:22:08--> 00:22:45

That is how you enter duck bait will knock this, you enter it with Islam, not with the dunya that the people possess. And this is the same ID for my brothers and my brothers in Islam. establish your follower, hold on to God and abide by the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala get closer in your relationship with Allah. And this is the only way that baitul mock this will be restored and back in the hands of the believer as well as colossal panna hautala to free baitul mock this from the Zionist Jews. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring back baitul mock this with honor to the believers and ask him subhanahu wa taala to make us people of the Quran people of the sunanda Walia

00:22:45--> 00:22:58

Valley Kolkata or LA or sun Allahu wa sallam opelika ala nabina Muhammad Ali he also be as moment as Marian apollonia was known for Allah howdy welcome, first of all who in whom Allah for Allah him
