00:04:41--> 00:04:47

over the course of the last six to seven days. We have been watching in horror and absolute horror

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

as our brothers and sisters and Gaza Philistine

00:04:53--> 00:04:58

are being bombed and killed and removed yet again from the homes that they have

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

as the one

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


00:05:01--> 00:05:15

Watch is not in silence because silence would have been better than what we actually see today. silence I would, I would I all take silence any day of the week, over unwavering support for the oppressor to continue their oppression.

00:05:17--> 00:05:26

The unwavering support that is given by our own politician some of those who are local, we brought into our massage and welcomed them in and talk to them and voted them in.

00:05:28--> 00:05:37

Now, as we observe this as he watched it on a daily basis, I have to say this is not the first time within my lifetime, that I got an A member and had to talk about it.

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

I feel it won't be the last.

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

But I can tell you for sure that since I've been born, this is probably the worst.

00:05:47--> 00:05:50

I've never seen such barbarianism, such bigotry, such hatred,

00:05:52--> 00:05:56

such aggression at the same time, such hypocrisy

00:05:58--> 00:06:07

and a double standard that is just being used openly with no shame at all. with absolutely no shame and no embarrassment from the repetitive use of it.

00:06:09--> 00:06:39

Today, I'm not here to increase your pain to make you more angry than you probably already are, or to increase your fear. If you'd walk away feeling worse than you did walking in. What I do want to achieve today is number one, I want you to remember to remind I want to remind you of the narrative. I want you to remind you of what the narrative is that I want to make sure we have some idea of what advocacy or what action plans exist for us. And then I want to talk about children.

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

To start out.

00:06:46--> 00:07:24

The football has always used a term when they talked about a dispute. The term was Mahalo, Nisa. And anyone who studied a little bit of a sauna and felt they know that this is a term that's important. If you don't know what that term it means, or you don't understand what Mohalla Niza is in any different disagreement, then you can fix the problem. mean, what's the point of contest what is being disputed. Mahalo needs, we have to figure that out. And in the midst of what we observe on a daily basis, and all of the discussions and the arguments and the conversations, and the people coming sitting on in their TV stations and on media, talking about what they believe is their belief

00:07:24--> 00:07:28

isn't and you're hearing to all these different opinions, he can get very confused and distracted. And

00:07:30--> 00:08:08

let's let's make it really simple. I don't get confused. And I'm going to get distracted. Because I take it back to the simplicity of it all just go back to what's really simple. Now, I don't live there, and neither do you. And I'm not in this position to make a comment on how things should have been done and how they were done and why the Palestinians don't agree on everything and why it was done this way or that way. I'm not in that position. And I can't really make a comment on that I haven't been treated as a subhuman for 50 years. So I don't know, I'm not here to talk about that. But I'm here to tell you what I do know, and what you know for sure, for sure. In the midst of all

00:08:08--> 00:08:40

of this confusion, and these back and forth what you know for sure. You see if you have a good argument in this life, you don't get distracted by side lines, or by or by side arguments. You don't this is a there's a logical fallacy that is used. They have names for them. When someone has a good argument. Someone has a weak argument the person with a weak argument instead of arguing the point will distract and talk about other stuff, maybe go after your character or there's some details. Some of the strong argument doesn't they stick to the point stick to the point. Here's the point. In 1917

00:08:41--> 00:08:54

foreign people promised the land they didn't own two people had no claim over it. In 1948, and apartheid Zionist state was established offering citizenship based on birth rates

00:08:55--> 00:09:23

ethnically cleansing towns and villages and cities from the people who have been living there for centuries, if not a millennium, in 1967. The next occurred and the Occupy what was left of the Holy Land, including other parts of the land. This is not these aren't points of dispute. There's no second opinion on this. This is these are historical facts. This is what happened. This is what happened. You can be on any side you want. This is what occurred.

00:09:25--> 00:09:46

They continue to build their settlements on land that the rest of the world believe is illegal to do forget about what we think the rest of the world say that it's illegal to build their they continue to do that. They have put the seed on the two on a piece of land that is extremely small, extremely overpopulated. One of the most highly densely populated places on the planet

00:09:47--> 00:09:54

for the last 16 years straights 50 years if you if you're going to be a bit more accurate,

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

that's what we know. That is undisputable.

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

historical fact. I don't need to know anything else. I don't need to argue with anybody or anything else. My opinion on anything else is completely irrelevant. When people ask you, do you agree with that? Or tell me Do you condemn the 1917 Balfour Declaration, you condemned the 1948 Nikka, you condemned the 1967 Nexa. You condemn what it continuously happens on that land, and the number of civilians that are continuously being killed over the last two, three decades, you condemn that? When you condemn that I'll take you out for lunch, and we can talk about whatever you want to talk about, we can talk about how the oppressed could have, could have revolted or resisted a little bit

00:10:37--> 00:10:49

better. I believe it's unethical. I truly believe it's unethical for us to talk about the oppressed and how they are resisting their oppressors while the oppression is still there.

00:10:50--> 00:11:25

While the oppressors continue to hold in their hands that which they took, and they have not given it back. Makes no sense. If someone takes something away from you and stands there, and we all stand in watch. We don't have the right to judge you and how you're going to retaliate. There's no sense in that I can't do it, ethically, philosophically, theologically, you can't do that. The oppression is there, no one has removed it yet. Talk to me when you condemn it, and talk to me when you start removing it. And then we can have discussions. And then we can go into details. No problem. I am open for discussion with details. I have no issue with that. But not out. Not until that. Not until

00:11:25--> 00:11:30

we agree. And we recognize we recognize the oppression that occurred.

00:11:31--> 00:11:41

Just recognize it. And just acknowledge that it's there. And understand how hard it is, how hard it is for you to be oppressed. And no one acknowledged that you are

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

fresh, it is like cancer.

00:11:45--> 00:11:57

It's like cancer, if it's not removed, it just grows and gets worse and worse and worse, never goes away. It never goes away. And the pain that it causes is unmeasurable, and what goes around comes around in this world.

00:11:59--> 00:12:22

never it never fades into nothingness. It's always there until it's removed, it's always going to be there and doesn't get prettier. And it wouldn't matter as you said Alehissalaam in volume volume, two in your multi omics your volume operation starts in this world and gets bigger and bigger and bigger, and then it turns into darkness on the alternative judgment. And that's where that's where you'll that's where we find it. We find it over there.

00:12:24--> 00:12:33

As Muslims, the one of the core values that we carry in Islam, if not the core value is how is justice is anti oppression.

00:12:34--> 00:13:14

First and foremost, above everything, above everything else, every other, every other value you can think of, is trumped by heart is trumped by beat standing against volume. The issue here is Muslim brother and sister issue of Muslim. This is not as a display. This is not an this is not a contest of Muslims and Jews. It never has been it never was. This has never been a problem. Jews and Muslims have lived side by side for for as long as Muslims have been around. We have Muslims have lived by every single faith on the planet and every corner of the earth. This is not the problem. To be even more frank, if you come from any major city within the Middle East, you know that they have

00:13:14--> 00:13:45

neighborhoods there till this day. Every major city in the in the Middle East has the neighborhood with the Jewish people still live there. When we were there and Philistines, they are with us when the Crusades happened. We had to leave, they're left with us. When Salahuddin entered they went with us again, there without going and de Lucia when we left we left again. There is no we don't we don't play that game. We don't play the anti semitic known anti semitism. No, that's not how are you going to be anti semitic? When most people sitting here are the sons and daughters of Ishmael? How can you be anti yourself? It doesn't work that way. We don't believe in that we don't. That's not what we

00:13:45--> 00:14:25

practice. That's not how we think they live with us. That's no problem at all. This is not an issue of religion. We don't we don't accept the death of any civilian anywhere. But that's not the issue of contest. That's not what we're arguing right now. We're not arguing any of that. We're arguing a Muslim, an act of oppression that occurred over 100 years ago, was established 75 years ago and continues till today. That is what we're talking about. No one has removed that. The world continues to ignore that. And we will continue to talk about it. And we will continue to voice our concerns about it. We will never let it die. And if there are people somewhere there

00:14:26--> 00:14:33

that refused to be buried. If there are people there who are refusing to allow the world to forget about them.

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

Who am I to know I can't I can't have every right. I can't say anything, and they're being oppressed. And you see oppression exists all throughout the Muslim world to be quite frank and honest here. I'm ashamed to say that I don't know all of the acts of oppression that have occurred upon many Muslim brothers and sisters who are here with us today. You've got almost every Muslim group, and there's a story of oppression that never got fixed.

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

And yes, we talked about this one a little bit more. And I'm when I stand here I look at my Muslim brothers and sisters coming from other parts of the world where they were oppressed and mistreated. I apologize to them, I'm sorry, I don't know. And I'm sorry to speak about them as much as I should. That's, that's on us. And that's the mistake that we have to rectify. And your mobile ama is as important as any other Muslim, that your oppression is as important as the oppression of any other Muslim. the oppression of every human being is as important as the oppression of any other human being. But today, we talk about something that we are watching that we are witnessing that the world

00:15:29--> 00:15:40

stands and supports, as a carpet bomb, a very small piece of land demanding that a 2.2 million population removed themselves to a

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

this is what we are watching. And this is what is happening.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

It's not the first time you've seen it.

00:15:54--> 00:15:59

And if you're 50 or 60, it's not the second or third time either. It's been happening a lot.

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

Can it change? Maybe,

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

but as of now

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

it's ongoing.

00:16:08--> 00:16:13

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

see what lady

00:19:03--> 00:19:12

was talking about, like in an era when a Muslim in Cameroon al Bolden him an artist Musa haka marker for him mark and Marcus Mozia shape.

00:19:13--> 00:19:13


00:19:16--> 00:19:30

so what can we do? The narrative must be clear, make it very clear. You know exactly what it is that you're contesting. And its argument is very clear. There's an apartheid Zionist state occupying land illegally

00:19:31--> 00:19:42

performing ethnic cleansing since 1932. Till today, this is the historic fact that has to stop and be removed and until it does,

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

then there is no resolution. See, peace is only peace, if it serves justice, if it serves justice, if the rights of the Palestinians are given back to them, if they are treated equally. If they can live freely with dignity, then we can start talking. But until then we stand

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

In an unwavering position of solidarity with them till the end, in an unwavering position of solidarity with the Palestinians till the end, just like some of our politicians enjoy unwitting and unwavering matters standing by the oppressor. Well, at least we know with whom we stand.

00:20:20--> 00:20:32

A few things you can do. Here's a few things. Number one, political advocacy, this is the most important part in my opinion, my generation not too good at it, I ain't good at it either. political advocacy is important,

00:20:33--> 00:20:54

especially in this in our society here. Those whom we supported, politicians we supported should know should feel our lack of support, should feel the fact that we are not okay with the comments that they make and the stances that they take. I know most, most people in the world most politicians have sold long time ago. But that doesn't matter to me.

00:20:55--> 00:21:11

They must know that this is an issue that matters to us. Every person here has an email and has a phone, make phone calls and send emails and send letters, and be very clear and stick to the basic narrative of what it is that we stand for. And that's the least we can do. You see.

00:21:13--> 00:21:21

Our brothers and sisters in federal stealing are paying with their blood. They're paying with their homes, paying with their livelihood, they're losing that which is very difficult to lose.

00:21:22--> 00:21:28

We are required to do something you see you can say I'm making drugs, of course you're making dua, buddy,

00:21:29--> 00:22:00

but also you're doing question making dua to don't consider that doing something. That's rude. Of course, you're going to make dua, of course, you're Muslim, you'll make dua for them every stage that you make, as you walk down the street. And when you go to sleep, when you wake up, you're making dua for them. If you're not then what else are you doing? Of course, you're making your Muslim that's a part of who you are. Don't consider that I did something. No, you didn't? Didn't? I know it's hard to hear. But no, you didn't. When you turn to Allah Subhanallah say, yes, there's a mobile AMA, I ain't doing anything. I'm gonna ask you to fix it, though. You fix it, can you fix it,

00:22:00--> 00:22:15

fix it, yada, but I'm too busy. I'm too busy, I don't have time to do anything about it. So you do take care of it. Now, it's not what dua is, I'm sorry, that's not what it is. It's not what it is. So make dua of course, we will continue to make dua not forever. Figure out something that you can do.

00:22:16--> 00:22:49

But look like if you can't do that to make sure you donate to them financially support them, because they're going to need a lot of it, they're going to need a lot of it. And they don't get as much as they as they deserve as much as they require. Make sure you raise awareness within the within the circles that you're in. This is not an issue that you stay quiet on. By the way, as Muslims, we have to be strategic and smart and wise in terms of what is it that we openly detest and go after what we what we leave, this is not one of those issues, there's a lot of issues we can put on the side burner as Muslims, a lot of issues being put on the side burner and let for another day. This isn't

00:22:49--> 00:22:56

one of them. This is not one of them. You don't shy away from this, you're not embarrassed of what you stand for when it comes to this issue at all.

00:22:57--> 00:23:03

That may cost all of us, that's fine, that's fine. Because it's costing the people there way more, way more.

00:23:05--> 00:23:26

So make sure you raise awareness to speak of it. On the media perspective, there's a lot that can be done, we don't, you don't have the reach that we should. But today, things a little bit different when they were in the 1990s, where there was only three or four outlets and whoever random that's they control the flow of information today, the flow of information is much more free. So you have the ability to put the narrative out make sure that you do so

00:23:28--> 00:23:30

the final point of this whole bone, children.

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

I'm not just speaking of the children who are passing away in wisdom

00:23:36--> 00:23:42

that we've watched over the years, and we're watching today. The pain that comes with seeing that and observing and

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

talking about our children here.

00:23:45--> 00:24:07

The narrative that I explained to you at the beginning. And the importance and urgency of taking action on what's happening has to be passed down. They have to be taught this in their homes and in their massage and everywhere they go see a cause that has people who are still standing for it doesn't die. A cause that doesn't will slowly fade away.

00:24:09--> 00:24:37

So this next generation has to know that as well. There has to be hope. We have to show that there's hope that there's hope of things changing. I grew up I didn't have that. I'll be I'll be very honest with you. I didn't I didn't I knew the importance of this cause I knew the importance of this Alia how in the heart of the Muslim world and the Muslim ummah. So it's a it's of God's mercy love source in the Quran. He went through all of his thoughts and he ascended to the heavens from there. It means something to us. It's very,

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

very central to what we are as Muslims, it means a lot. I didn't have hope growing up very little of him. I don't think that's healthy. I think there is of course there is hope. Of course, there is hope and we have to generate it. And we have to make sure that the next generation feels this there is hope you are the hope you are the hope of what is to come or the hope for this to change.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

hinge for the public opinion to,

00:25:03--> 00:25:45

to move and for the forces of the world to see what they are consciously drawing a blind eye to just consciously just acting like it's not there, using rhetoric and using words. And speaking in a way that is that is nauseating. It is vomit inducing, that is just plain disgusting. But there's a lack of work on our side. There's lack of advocacy, there's lack of involvement, there's lack of awareness raising, and you have to make sure that the kids know me, Allah Subhan, Allah accept their martyrs, and grant those who are ill shifa, may Allah grant them their salvation, there will be over the next number of days, different events that are going to address these this topic specifically,

00:25:46--> 00:26:23

many of them will be directed towards the younger generation in terms of dealing with some of the trauma that they may be going through when they watch these things on TV, we're answering some of the questions that may be lingering for them. The q&a After Salah will run, I hope that we can, it can be more focused on that, especially for the younger brothers and sisters, if they have questions about this topic specifically, it's important we talk about it and it's important to stays alive. And it's important that we support one another. Through these times a lot of we have this community in London as a very large Palestinian Julia, and actually has a very large because Zoe Julia, as far

00:26:23--> 00:26:46

as I can tell, I know a lot of people, I thought it was normal, but this is actually very specific to the city, a lot of people from Gaza. So support them, and reach out to them and give them calls and make sure that they feel because you unless you've been in a similar situation where you sat and watched your country burn, then it's hard to understand what it feels like it's a it's one of the ugliest

00:26:47--> 00:27:15
