Lima Nikki him Merida, the verses we heard a few moments ago recited right before Jamal Han, Allah subhanaw taala says in total, in those towns or those villages, those cities or those nations,
we punished them when they performed volume. And we made sure that their punishment at a specific time, and it was witnessed by others. I mean, we made sure we made a point by doing it.
The word volume oppression is in the Quran over 289 times, right 289 times this issue has been talked about in the Quran.
Now, I'm not going to start a new series this week, or maybe in a few weeks is a couple of things I want to talk about talk about and kind of get off my chest. And this week, specifically,
the hope that I'm going to offer, the time we're going to talk about is something that probably all the masajid within the country are going to talk about, it's something that the councils of Imams, both locally and nationally, I decided that we should probably address and I agree,
as tomorrow is the Truth and Reconciliation day. Because we decided that we were going to perform genocide and take land and given the 30th of September because that's a that's a good compensation for it.
When you talk about when you talk about the word boom, it takes you back Islamically to the core values of what Islam is. And I find that we often don't necessarily fully understand what the word core values or principles within Islam are. Like we don't we don't seem to all have the same comprehension of this term or these terms. When we say it when we talk about core values in Islam, we're talking about three basic things. And no, we're not talking about the rituals. The other kind of list and I'm not talking about that. And no we're not talking about though Hey, because that is an ideological core core principle. The belief is a core belief. We're talking about values and
principles which are a little bit different. And Islam is based on three basic core values, righteousness, justice, and incorruptibility. Helping
I did in this department. These are the three words that you find all throughout the Quran repeated time and time again, no matter how, no matter how much where you read or what you're reading, or when it was revealed to the Prophet, either your slot was on one way or the other, the verse is going to be rotating or circumambulating within the realm of one of these three words. And funnily enough, the first two are just the anti oppression, What is righteousness and justice really at the end, which is why this word woman in the Quran is repeated so many times, here's why it's the easiest, I could just give this whole hope by by just reciting verses,
give you a small paragraph for Allah subhanaw taala talks about LWN. And then once I'm done a couple of hours in, I can go ahead and start narrating for you a hadith within the authentic books of Hadith and go on for a couple of hours as well. So it's very, very peculiar to me sometimes as Muslims, when we don't prioritize this topic as an issue that we stand very firmly against, and that we accept, in no way. And on no level. Are we okay with it? And it's part of our core principles to be against it, and to be pro justice and righteousness at all times. Which is why
I don't I don't like the idea of having a day a year, just to remember something I really don't I've always found that to be. I don't know what it is. It's something it's a personality trait. I don't like it. Like I know, I'm not big on birthdays. I'm not I'm not big on this stuff. I don't think it's because I feel like what it really does, it allows you it just allows us on a certain level, the luxury of forgetting about the topic later. Because I remember that one day, then I can move on. I don't I don't feel responsible to continuously talk about something. Now that may not be the case for most people. I'm not saying that is I'm just saying why are we telling you why personally not
too big on things that come in the same day, or once a week, once a year, once a week or once anything. Now, this is the time of the year where we remember the prophets of Allah Allah who sent them in more intensity. Within this month he was born within this month he passed away at his Salatu was Salam. So there's hope I should be reminding ours we should be bring him out of your slot to Assam. And we will, because I think the way to remember him the best out of his slot to Assam is remembering what values and principles he came here to make sure that we would never forget. That's really how you remember him out of here. Salatu Salam was the point of remembering other aspects of
his character out of his slot to us to them and being in love with him out of his throat was summoned talking about the way he looked into it. But then you turn we turn our backs on the basics of what he came to change. To me that sounds very weird. There's something missing there is a very big gap here between what we are and what we should be. You want to celebrate him out of his slot to ascend. There's many ways to do it. I think the most important way to do it is to go back and say well, what is it that he taught? What did he What did he come here and make sure that we wouldn't ever forget that he's opened the Quran you find the word volume there 289 times and then you open
his hand and you'll find him say find Allahu Tada there's
a body because when Allah Subhanallah he's telling us it is so Allah says it's not Quran and Hadith Good to see anybody in the hell run to Volmer Allah NFC wa jal to who may in hell Roman fella to avoid them over.
Oh my servants I have made oppression forbidden on myself and no one forbids Allah from doing anything but he forbade himself from ever oppressing anyone and I have made oppression forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another.
He says I just thought it was so damn
it up in volume for in a Woolmer of Aloma Tonio melty, and as a Muslim, be very aware of oppression because don't turn it into darkness on the Day of Judgment, where you can't move anymore and you can't make your way through the slot. Hadith narrated by Muhammad the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam will say that I tell him about volumi we're in kaneka Feola fillet salah, her Dune, Allah hijab, be very aware and be very cautious and careful from the dua of the oppressed, even if they're a disbeliever because there's nothing that's holding it back from reaching Allah himself. subhanho wa Taala
he said I saw some Hadith and collection of you know, play early seem reasonable generation that our children have looming, Mustafa Buttonwillow kind of Gilan for food guru who infc He, the dua of the oppressed is accepted even if this person is not a practicing Muslim, even if this person behaves in ways where everyone says that's not that's not appropriate, because his inappropriateness and mistakes is going to affect him. That's that's his problem. That's something he has to deal with on his own. But when you're oppressed things change.
The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam would ask the Sahaba who is the one who was the mu for this hadith is called Hadith most is also in the collection a Muslim who was the one who was bankrupt and they will say is the person who has no wealth and then he would correct them so Allah Allah you cite yourself them and you would tell them and move today Safina
Almighty man yet to multi Yama tibia Salah tin was the curtain was a young man who had
Just the wording of the Hadith by the way, is the is the person or my OMO comes out the day of judgment and they have prayer and they have CME and they have they paid Zika and they've done has you know that way to you top dollar bajada shatta Maha kolomela Harada was tough Akadama her though had to go further he comes on the judgment but he's also he is cursed this person hit that person mistreated that person taking the wealth of this person harmed the integrity of that person who hurt them and asked them to hurt them in the end they all come and they start taking taking their rights and they start taking those assets from him. I def now I sign out to who until this person has no
assets left for your family he may say yes to him since they can't take their house and other people waiting in line for what is theirs what is their rights? Since they can't take custody they take from their car then they give to him we all follow him and say to him to my you'll cough and no and this person is thrown into jail had pneumonia yeah tabula.
I had a teacher who would not dare philosophy. You may or may agree with this. You may not have this. Okay. So I'm just sharing with you with a thought process on this. He wouldn't dare make dua openly on the word volume without specificity that he couldn't bring himself to say Allahumma olika volley mean, he couldn't do it. You're gonna say Oh, Allah punish the oppressors. You couldn't do it. If there's a specific oppressor, then maybe but but, but to generalize, he couldn't do it. And when he asked him why he would tell you because I don't know if maybe I'm one of them.
Because I don't know if I am one of them. Maybe I'm an oppressor. Maybe I have harmed people and taken what is theirs. Maybe I've walked through this life and I'm leaving behind me a trail of oppression and mistreatment and I'm just too blind to see it. So we make to our own oppressors altogether. Maybe I'm making dua against myself so I hold my tongue
and you're standing The problem here is level like I am in Korea in Latin Alekna Wahiawa Lima, your call we are to another oroshi hobby remote piloting wakasugi machine and how many towns and cities and villages we have punished because of their oppression? So now they stand empty on their vines and on they're old or empty or dried up wells and on there once high standing castles up, but I'm gonna see a little Philately that they never walk the earth. But Hakuna Allahu Kowloon. Yeah. Luna be her than on your smartphone wanna be her? Did they not walk the earth? And then and then and then contemplate and think with their hearts? And listen with their ears? Maybe say you think with your
brain? Yeah, that's that's superficial thinking. Are we talking about contemplation and reflection? The subconsciousness does that that's why the globe is using this idea. And then he says in a bizarre way I can Tamil Kaluga. Let's see if you saw Dora. Because there's not eyes that go blind. It's hearts that go blind. It's hearts that go blind, not the eyes.
When we decide to see a womb, and just look away, and act like it's not there, and continue on ignoring it, drawing a conscious blind eye to it.
You know that the high Nabila within the field wouldn't allow Salah
on a land that is most zuba. It'll allow you preying on land that was taken illegally. You don't allow it, the gym would allow it but they say you shouldn't be standing there. And I don't even allow you to pray on that land. Because the issue of oppression is not a secondary topic within the deen is not something where we are is open for each jihad, whether how you deal with it or you deal whether you deal with it or not, or whether you take it seriously or not. Or whether you protect yourself from it or whether you're anti it's, it is an issue that is core within our deen when we talk about the orange shirt day, and we talked about what happened to the indigenous people of this
land, the natives of this land,
you stand in awe of what happened, and how we just continue moving forward as if it didn't.
One of the
worst atrocities that have happened within the last couple of centuries is what happened on the land that you and I stand upon. It's what happened to the people who once lived here, the people who inherited this land by God himself. You see you and I have textures, different textures. This line here didn't make the texture you're seeing was produced somewhere else. All of Earth is Mother Earth, but some parts are a bit more close to you than others. This line here produced a different type of person. And they lived here for a long time, and then they lost all of it. And it wasn't the fact that you just lost it.
It wasn't the end look at bats. They were killed in the millions. And they were removed. They were treated as if they weren't even human.
But they got to the 30th of September. I mean, what else so you can ask for a day a year where we can remember them. And we have to be more
pragmatic and practical when we talk about voting.
Because no one doesn't.
to end with the action itself, it doesn't.
It doesn't volume doesn't stop with the person who's oppressed. Oppression continues to eat away at the oppressed and their descendants for generations upon generations for hundreds of years. Will never goes away. Volume never goes away, which is why you're multi AMA, the first thing that is judged amongst people at Dima blood, the first thing you think of stuff that's not solid, so that comes later. The first thing Oh, what are you muslim? Oh, well, my yoga Dana, Nurse yomo piano Dima, the first thing that's going to be settled or blood, because that level of oppression, no, we have to settle that first. There is no way around that piece. There is no way around it. And as a Muslim,
you are required to be anti oppression, no matter where the oppression is occurring, whether it's the oppression that occurred within the Holy Land of Philistine and what happened to the people there, where there's the oppression that occurred upon the indigenous people within this land. As Muslims, we do not turn a blind eye to that. And we don't act like it didn't happen. Now, I don't know exactly what to do about it. I'm not going to stand here and act like I have the answers because I don't, I don't know exactly what we need to do. But what I do, what I do know is that we cannot afford to act like these things didn't happen, we can shelve them and put them aside, or we
can ignore them as we walk through life that for sure we can't do for sure we can't afford to do it. Because if you accept your volume, oppression is like this big wheel of destruction. Once it rolls over one group of people, unless you stop it and fix it, it will continue to roll until it rolls over you.
It will continue to move and destroy until it rolls over You mark my words. I am here today because of this is why I stand here you would never met me Had that not been the case. Because we were a people who saw volume and didn't care. We didn't care. I will be very honest with you. We did not care. We lived close to people who were living under volume on both sides, to the east and to the west. And we didn't care. I lived there for 15 years. We didn't talk about it because didn't matter to us. So the same wheel that ran them over and put them through pain came around us over and no one cared when it did either. And I had nothing to say there was no reason for me to object and say,
Well, why aren't people caring because I didn't either.
I didn't either.
So we have a chance as Muslims here today, we have the time, and we have the
ability to reflect and think
volume continues to happen.
continues to happen all over the world. And as Muslims, we refuse it wholeheartedly, regardless of who's being oppressed, and who was doing the oppression. And we don't cherry pick, we don't say one act of doom is worse than the other, all of whom is born. And all of it should be refused. And all of it, we should stand against it. And we should be very clear on that and should respect where we are on whose land we stand. And who wants was here. We should respect the fact that we are guests on the land of others. I know this lot people don't like that. It's fine. That's fine. You don't have to. But this is the historic reality of the matter. It's okay to be a guest or a guest in life
anyways, we're only here for a couple of laps around the sun and we're gone. Acknowledging that there's one more level of being the guest is okay, acknowledging that there's one more level of it, that we act and remember it so we remember that because if we don't, it's just a matter of time. And if it doesn't affect you in your lifetime, if you're lucky enough to go through your life and doesn't affect it will affect your children. It will come around it will come around who luckily there was talks with Allah he will come first off you know who your ferula Camilla Fosun mustafina Stokes.

brothers and sisters, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam Poom this these months are months where we increased the amount of our remembrance of him out of his Salatu was Salam and celebrate his character and try to emulate what he did.
Towards the end of his life. This is something he said multiple times and you'll find the measurement. Remember he sent me a hadith that has a authentic generation with the Prophet Allah, your thoughts on God and I remember towards the end of last couple of weeks last week of his life and he said man Quinto or the JELA Tula who was run for her elbow, he fell he lit who whomever I have ever, whoever I have harmed, or I've laid my hand on or has been punished by me and they feel that is unfair. This is my back. Come Take what is yours, Willa Yaksha, Manisha and don't be afraid that I'm going to be upset with you or hold a grudge because I don't hold grudges. We're in the LSU
and Allah Mahalia and I hope to meet Allah subhanaw taala where I owe nobody anything. I hope to meet Allah owing no one anything with nothing on me know that
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is what he's worried about. He's worried that you'll melt the AMA before he can move towards gender. Someone says no. You owe me you didn't do it. You treated me that way. You spoke to me in that way. You ignored me you mistreated you made me
what are we going to send you understand the problem? The smallest amount of volume your meltdown was you will stand you're not going anywhere? It doesn't matter doesn't it doesn't matter what you how amazing you were. It doesn't matter what level of hula you achieved or how deep your shahada was or how much higher you did if you've oppressed someone you stand. You stand that level milliohm there is no oppression today. No one is going just isn't going to be served fully. So not only are we supposed to be observing in justices around us and making sure that that's not the case that we and we will not draw a blind, blind eye to any act of injustice around us. We have to make sure that
we're not a part of the problem too.
We had that is how Muslims behave. If you're a Muslim for sure. And we are in sha Allah in the eyes of Allah subhanahu escolas 100 Make us good Muslims inshallah. We are considered continuously walking the
As we're making sure that we're not oppressing people, we're very scared of that. We're always analyzing observing, am I have I harmed anyone? Have I mistreated anyone? And taking a step back and making sure because doesn't matter?
Well, it doesn't matter how much pmla You have and how much how many times you read the Quran, if you come, you're welcome. I will boom.
You're on your own. You are on your own, even those who are hoping to intercede for you. Sorry.
I would intercede but we didn't agree on volume. I didn't know you're going to come oppressing people, mistreating them and carrying volume and having blood on your hands or having or owing people stuff. This is a core value within our deen and I wanted to share it with you today because I think it's a good time to share it.
I think when we talk about the prophets that Allah Allah Islam, you sell them and we have the Truth and Reconciliation Day coming up tomorrow. I think it's worth remembering what he stood for out of his salatu salam and what you stand for. You stand for righteousness, you stand for justice. First and foremost. First and foremost, before you stand for anything else on a social level, on a global level, you stand for these two basic ideas. And that's why we will never be okay with injustice, it doesn't matter. There's nothing you can do for a Muslim, there's nothing you can do to offer whatever you want. As long as the injustice stands we will continue to oppose it till the last
breath that we carry and we will make sure that our children are taught to do that and they will do that to their children and we will continue to teach and coach Muslims to refuse oppression regardless of when it occurs and who does it and if this sounds extreme to you, it isn't if it if it sounds extreme and a bit too much too over the edge. It is not it is not it is core within our deen How do you start to assemble he came to do is to remove them.
He came to make sure that injustice was going to be removed and he taught him Sahaba never to do it which is why I'm gonna kata wouldn't sleep during his alpha which is why he stayed up night and day thinking about maybe did he not do what he was supposed to do was someone who pressed under him
was the way he was ruling causing people to be mistreated because he was scared and when his son said yeah my father add me to the to the group of Shoura who are going to be chosen amongst them they're going to choose the next the next Halifa had me and he was worthy his son Abdullah was totally worthy of being added leadership and and knowledge and until every he had it all and his father told him no. Only one person from Bonilla will carry this on the day of judgment so I don't need to have us I don't need to have us standing there we're hoping that we haven't I can't for my sake don't do it because I have to stand your milk down and be asked about oppression and whether we
fell into it knowingly or unknowingly. And with that inshallah Tala binary out you'll find a
banner for the MSA, the Western MSA they're trying to collect some donations to help renovate some of the rooms if you want to help them I would encourage that and ask you to kindly do so.
