00:01:19--> 00:01:20

are you

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

are you on a sauna?

00:02:09--> 00:02:10


00:02:44--> 00:02:47

Alhamdulillah Haitham Al Hamdulillah

00:02:49--> 00:02:55

Al Hamdulillah Hina Madhu whom one has done you know when a study he was still a futile who want a stone will settle

00:02:57--> 00:03:58

00:03:58--> 00:04:37

Taala and obey Allah and His Prophet and do not divide or disagree amongst one another and cause weakness, because if you do then you will fail and then your winds will disappear. Or the word what does it how about you How come is literally translated as in your wins are gone, but it's even figuratively in English it has the same meaning, meaning whether you are going to read the word the phrase in Arabic understand the figure of speech that it is meant for, or you translate it into English and also read it is still figuratively has the same meaning and we all know what is meant by that. Whatever momentum you have, whatever strength you have, whatever

00:04:39--> 00:04:45

chance that prevailing that you have is gone once you once you disagree and divide amongst one another.

00:04:47--> 00:04:49

As we continue to bleed as an Oma.

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

As we continue to watch

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

the barbaric bombardment go on for 33 days.

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

burying people

00:05:02--> 00:05:13

under the rubble of their own homes, removing them, removing them from where they are living and having them actually emigrate to a place that even more dentists and the place that the left

00:05:15--> 00:05:23

to put it in perspective for you, because that is 365 square kilometers. London is 420.

00:05:25--> 00:05:36

London is 420 square kilometers, plus this 365 33 days of ongoing bombardment, ongoing bombing.

00:05:37--> 00:05:45

I don't even trust the number of tons of bombs that they have dropped on in terms of the reports that are being given, I don't think they're accurate, so I'm not going to share them.

00:05:46--> 00:05:57

But once you have a death toll of 11,000 people, 4000 of them which are children, that's four times the number of children I have, I have served in the entirety of my life.

00:05:59--> 00:06:05

All my life, I have not served 1000 children, they have killed them four times over

00:06:06--> 00:06:13

children, people who are going to hospitals, people who are living in their homes, having dinner and going to bed and not waking up in the morning.

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

It is really at this point beyond me

00:06:18--> 00:06:39

trying to understand how this is just being lit up and how the world regardless of I've never, I've never had any hope from the Western world. When it comes to these things to begin with. I'll be very honest with you. I've never I don't expect anything else. Honestly, I have no expectations of them caring. But I find it very weird from Muslims, from Muslim countries and Muslim populations.

00:06:41--> 00:07:17

That this is happening. And we still, our voices aren't loud enough. And our advocacy is not intense enough. And we are we are failing and moving this needle. And I'm just I'm just finding it very difficult to cope with. But I do want to take a moment and just thank my government, I really want to thank them for reminding me of how little value we have. Because for a moment there for a moment there, I was led on I actually started to believe that no, we're all the same. We are all we all have equal value, we all matter exactly the same to everyone else. So thank you for reminding me that we don't that when it really matters, we don't have the same value and we are not equal to

00:07:17--> 00:07:37

everyone else. And that was important because it's it's not healthy to live in illusion. It's not healthy at all to be deluded about what the reality actually is. I want to thank them for that because they needed to set the record straight. They had to say this straight that when it matters, no, you do not carry equal value, your voice doesn't your principles don't and your blood doesn't either.

00:07:39--> 00:07:46

But what I really want to thank them for is reminding me again, of how at the end of the day, we only have each other to depend upon

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

reminding us that we have to pull together

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

that the only strength that we have is the strength that we draw from from each other. And that's I in my opinion, the probably the most important lesson that we've learned. It's a reminder, it's a reminder that our strength comes within just like our weakness comes from within as well.

00:08:09--> 00:08:45

I'm going to share with you today, something that probably bothered you salatu salam said narrated and collected by Muslim is in the collection of Buddhahood and the Serbian tell me the and a bunch of others as well. But I do want you to hear this hadith because I think it's very meaningful. This is what he said out of his salatu salam kata and he didn't read by Tobin but in Allah Zoa Ali Al had a tumor Sharifah or mahari Baja Allah subhanaw taala this was an end of his life, showed me Earth showed me the different territories of earth I saw I saw the Eastern I saw the West were in Malacca or mateesah. Yeah, blue, mais le minha and I saw how the Muslim ummah will reach every corner of the

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

earth that he showed me.

00:08:48--> 00:08:53

We're pleased to welcome Xena Allah Mara will be up and he showed me how he was going to give my OMA

00:08:55--> 00:08:55

much wealth

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

is going to give my own man all that they need when it comes to wealth all the treasures of the earth are white in the red

00:09:03--> 00:09:07

in the soil turabi And then I saw that and I asked my lord for something,

00:09:08--> 00:09:24

Allah you Holika whom vicinity in ARM who Allah you sell it I lay him I do one min Seiwa and fusi him yesterday for biodata him and asked him Is it okay? That I if I request from you, that you do not punish my ummah

00:09:26--> 00:09:54

in general, one take punishment meaning a national phenomenon that would take everyone else as it happen to the people of Hood as it happened to the people of sada as it happened to the people of loop that that doesn't happen to my own. And I asked him, Can you also offer me that my Alma is not ruined, destroyed or demolished by an enemy aside from themselves? No enemy from outside of them external to them can come in to the midst of them and ruin them.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

On fatale Rabina My Lord answered me go back to the Hadith and misdemeanor

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

and read it slowly. Yeah Mohamed Salah Mohammed Al Salam in the either Kobe to pada and for inner hula Euro O Muhammad one side give a decree it is not revoked when niot Lika Lika whom the Senate in arm and I give it to you that I will not punish them all at once. When neoral Pika, I love to sell Lippa, Ali him, I do one min Siva unfussy him yesterday whole biodata home and I will give it you, I will give it to you that I will not have an enemy external to them and destroy them or demolish them

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


00:10:39--> 00:11:09

your Qunar bow to whom yuck to Baba YSP ba boom ba ba. But it will be them. Who will kill each other, it will be them who will rip off each other and one another. It won't be from from from it won't be an external problem. It will be from within. It will be from within, which has been the narrative the Prophet alayhi salatu salam has taught all his life. It's what's in the Quran. This is the narrative you are in

00:11:11--> 00:11:23

your weakness and your strength comes from within. It's never been an external problem. We waste time talking about it. But that's not the issue. The issue is not the external powers. It's not the external

00:11:24--> 00:12:02

groups that are targeting us it's not is the weakness that we have from within, that allows these things to happen. And it's the strength from within that will change the future. And this is what he taught how to use Serato Sam, this is what the Quran says. Let me let me add something for you. What he says to Pilate with dinosaurs, the newer, this idea is very well established and very well understood. It's the only idea we have one of the few ayat that we have that has a promise from duniya within it for the OMA itself. The promises in the Quran are always about that's where the promises lie. The promises with this OMA lie in the lie in what's going to happen on the Day of

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

Judgment of justice, of compassion,

00:12:05--> 00:12:44

of righteousness of everyone being served their due diligence This is what the Quran talks about. We don't have a lot of promises in the Quran for dunya we have one for individuals and then we have a few for groups but this one is talking about the nation he says I know what I know why the Allah Who Lavina I'm assuming come where I'm you know Solly Hardy now you're stuck with me for unknown film. domestic level Latina men probably him What are you Makena nella whom do you know whom will let you I will tell them what are you but Dina know whom embody Hovi him Amna Yabu doing any la you shriek una be shy woman careful rabada Darrick bola eco whom will first you born what our theme was Salah

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

to Zakka without little Rasul Allah Allah come to hug Allah

00:12:49--> 00:13:21

Subhan Allah Dena Kapha romaji Xena falafel, Juan Manuel whom we know well, at least and mercy, said Allah subhanaw taala promises the nation of the believers, those who believe in those who performed and the deeds that they are required to perform, that he will grant them stewardship of the earth that they live upon. And he will grant them strength of their faith and their unity, the faith that he has accepted and given them and gifted them. And he will replace the fear that they live in with safety and security. As long as they continue to serve me journalists should

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

serve no one else.

00:13:25--> 00:13:44

And they do not associate anyone else with me. And those who turn their back to this are the ones who went astray. So continue to establish your Salah, continue to establish all aspects of faith that are personal in terms of your obligations with God himself, to continue to establish all aspects of faith that are in service of others,

00:13:45--> 00:14:08

and obey the prophets. So that you may find compassion, do not think, do not be misled to believe that your enemies are those who walked this earth with falsehood are too powerful for Allah subhanaw taala to remove, they are not. And they will be punished. And the punishment will be heavy, and it will be severe. And

00:14:10--> 00:14:13

again, the idea is explaining the exact same thing.

00:14:15--> 00:14:26

The only thing we have to complain about is our own efforts. The only thing you are permitted to complain about is how poorly you are performing. That's it.

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

That's the only thing you're allowed to complain about. Because Allah subhanaw taala made a promise and if the promise isn't come through, is because we didn't fulfill our part of the deal. It's as simple as that. If you believe in Allah, Allah illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah and you're here because you do then you know for sure based on what I just shared with you, that the lack of fulfillment of this promise is a problem from within. It is the doing of our own hands. It is not we have no one to blame. This piece of self accountability this

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

piece of self criticism and self analysis and self awareness is what we need to bring back into our lives as Muslims, individuals and as communities as well. If we don't like the reality,

00:15:15--> 00:15:38

who do we complain to? I don't like this reality. I hate it. And I don't. And that's a word we don't use today. But I hate this reality. I really do. I hate everything about it. I despise every aspect of it. It's making living very difficult. It's making living very difficult to make going to work and just having a normal day almost impossible.

00:15:39--> 00:16:20

But who do I have to blame for it? Who am I going to point my finger at to say this is your fault? I have no one. But myself. If you understand the dean, then you have no one to blame but yourself no matter what you've been through. It doesn't matter what you've been through. I don't care. The story doesn't matter how many places you've been removed from how many times you've been oppressed. This is not the time for you to feel sorry for yourself. I'm not allowed to sit around and boohoo me, I gotten removed from this place. And this helped me treated the only person I have to blame for this is me. And once we start thinking that way, and we start holding ourselves accountable, and we start

00:16:20--> 00:16:40

working harder towards our goal and we commit to our goals in a way that Allah subhanaw taala designed us to commit to them, not short term, but long term working together in unity bringing, bringing each other together not dividing amongst one another. And then and only then will we start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

00:16:41--> 00:16:45

00:20:54--> 00:21:39

brothers and sisters, the reason that I'm giving narrating for you this this these Hadith and reciting these verses, is because it brings us a piece of information that is critical. We have been through worse, the OMA has been through worse, all you have to do is read a little bit of the history, we have gone through worst times, where the Muslims were weaker, and much more divided and less educated and smaller in numbers. And we found our way back, we were reborn again. And we preserved our faith. And we preserved our principles and our values, and our teachings in our book in our language and the different cultures and the different populations, we preserved ourselves, we

00:21:39--> 00:22:20

found our way back through the darkness, it doesn't mean that we will do it again, it just means that it has been done. And something that was done in the past means that you can do it again in the present. That's the only piece of information that matters right now. We got through worse in the past that info is just to remind you that if you've gone through something like that, in the past, you can get through something like this in the present, it doesn't mean you will, it just means you can, it just means we can. And that's important for those of us who are feeling hopeless, or those of us who don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, for those of us who don't know think that

00:22:20--> 00:22:22

this is going to get better. And don't

00:22:24--> 00:22:32

you have reason to believe that it will happen again, I have reason to believe that will happen through each and every one of you.

00:22:33--> 00:22:37

Just like you have the obligation to feel the same. That the

00:22:38--> 00:23:15

that the success of this OMA and the prevailing of this OMA will come through the individuals that I'm looking at today, it will come through their commitment, through their dedication, through the decisions that they will make at these difficult times to turn their lives around and to live differently. And to have a clear focus, a clearer direction, to commit themselves and to let go of the distractions of life that are worthless, that never meant anything to begin with. And to walk the paths and to continue to walk it whether we are seeing our brothers and sisters falling on a daily basis or whether we are not. And that is what we have to focus on. And that is what we have to

00:23:15--> 00:23:41

discuss here. And this is what we have to revive and bring back again, these is in the Quran. And this hadith of the Prophet alayhi salam, in my opinion is very empowering. It's empowering. It's not weakening, when he tells us that you will not be destroyed from outside you will be destroyed from within. To me that's empowering. That tells me that my destiny is still in my hand. That my destiny that my destiny is not in the hands of someone else.

00:23:42--> 00:24:26

Someone else is not controlling what's going to happen to us. We are the ones who are still controlling what will happen to us. And we always will. So when we fail, we can only blame ourselves. To me that's empowering. Because the fear, the real fear is if we don't, or if we didn't, meaning we had no control. We could just sit around and hope and wait because someone else controls it. And they don't. They never did. They never did. Maybe we believed it for a while. Maybe we got lost for a while as a nation. Maybe we lost our way for a bit and we thought that others controlled and they didn't they never have we control it. It is our advocacy it is our hard work is our

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

commitment. It's our unity.

00:24:29--> 00:24:54

It's our striving for the sake of Allah is the insincerity of individuals and their genuineness and their willingness to learn and to work and to dedicate themselves to something that is larger than them than themselves. That is what will change things. And you still have the ability, and this is the problem. The problem with that is that humans pmld Can't easy. I can't go to God and tell him well, I had nothing to add. I can have that argument. Honestly, it's a really important one.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

I was hoping to able to have because I can't really explain things otherwise

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

I was hoping I could had that argument with him explained No, no as far as what was happening is I didn't have any I barely could make a living. I could barely keep food on the table for my children and just stay is keep my head above water. You're gonna hold me hold me accountable for what's happening though that was never my business but it turns out that it is. Turns out that I do contribute and I do participate and this is in my hand, just like it's in yours. And your milk camera there are two types of accountability rounds. There are two of them just so you understand. There's the individual one well, I've got two more now for Radha come Kalapana come Oh, well Mr.

00:25:34--> 00:25:52

Ratan Tata rectum. Maha Nakamura Wudi. Come Well, Nana Rama come so far accumulating as I'm Commander Humphrey commercial rocket will call lumati He'll Malkia Mati Felder, that's the individual accountability. But then there's something different. There's the collective accountability.

00:25:54--> 00:25:57

Kulu Matt into the ILA kita beha.

00:25:58--> 00:26:01

lomatin. Tada. Isla kita Vihara

00:26:02--> 00:26:05

Stewartville jatheon. In Hakuna Stancy Houma quantum Tom balloon,

00:26:07--> 00:26:30

there's a collective judgment. We're a generation of people will be held accountable for their shortcomings. For the lack of people who performed illegible Keifa the collective the collective obligations for those who did not participate. For those who lived on the there are outliers on the outside, not interested in what's going on just taking care of themselves. As if they don't belong.

00:26:31--> 00:26:48

As if they don't belong, but they all do. We all do. And we're all going to be held accountable for this. So think about that. It's not just about the short term advocacy, it's about something much larger than that. What's happening right now in the world could bring back to us as Muslims.

00:26:49--> 00:27:26

The concept of activism, the concept of living your life for the sake of Allah well in our solidarity we know Sookie Omar here yeah, when Mama T Lilla. Here are these these Quranic gems, these principles in the Quran, where you don't live for the smaller gains, you don't live for simple stuff. You're not living just to make sure I just want to get my kids old, I just want to have a house I want to marry them. Often. These things happen, they may they happen, they don't happen. Well, you can't control any evidence is not that important. You live for something bigger than that. You are designed for something bigger than that. That's why you're a leaf. That's why the word is

00:27:26--> 00:28:06

using the Quran to describe you. It's why you're a servant of Allah subhanaw taala because you live your life trying to achieve that in his name to life is not just a walk through the park where you just try to avoid any controversy and just try to make sure that you get as much as much joy as possible and as much fun as pause. No, that's not what it's about. These events are designed to remind us of the truth of this existence. And it's up to us to decide whether we're going to be reminded by them or not. Remember, this almost solution comes from within and its destruction and its demise will come from within. And that's a promise from God Himself. He promised it to his

00:28:06--> 00:28:19

Habibullah who salatu salam he told me I promise you they will only prevail from within and they will fail from within and if those outside they won't do much for them. They will even if it seems like they are they won't it's going to be them
