What is the importance of magickal OXA

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

the third holiest site of Islam is established in the Muslim scripture. We don't reclaim rights over it just because we like the site. Just we just because we like the gold on the Dome of the Rock, just because we like the climate of that city. Not just because we like the land of Palestine for some reason. No, just like just because there is gold in there. No, it's because of Allah. Allah tells us that this Masjid Oxon is one of the holiest sites.

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

So, I will still briefly touch upon the initial topic, fall of civilizations and link it directly to our current situation in Palestine.

00:00:52 --> 00:01:00

Why do civilizations rise and why do they fall? is a very important question all of us we have to understand

00:01:01 --> 00:01:09

what a civilization is and how do we how they arise. How did it come about in the first place? How Muslim should travel to three places?

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

And what are those three places Maccha

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17


00:01:18 --> 00:01:32

and Alexa, because these are the massages, but to the Haram but to the Navi and muscle OXA so these are the three most important sites of Islam. No one can take them away from us.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:07


00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

Sri Lanka, Rahim

00:02:15 --> 00:02:26

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Kareem my dad said Mr. Equal to learn how to better character

00:02:30 --> 00:02:39

and just checking them everyone can hear me inshallah people joining us through the Zoom online. People who are in here sisters, you can hear us well.

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42


00:02:45 --> 00:02:46


00:02:49 --> 00:02:50


00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

Allah azza wa jal has gathered does this masjid

00:02:57 --> 00:03:01

for one purpose alone and that is to worship him as a Magellan

00:03:02 --> 00:03:16

and there's nothing better than just finishing a Jamara together you know children, men, women, all of us together inshallah train tomorrow together. And right now, transitioning to a HELOC on

00:03:17 --> 00:03:18


00:03:19 --> 00:03:37

may main objective of being here is for the sake of Allah to educate ourselves from a very important topic that's affecting our home. As the prophets Allah Azza wa sallam said in a hadith, that the Ummah is like a body, one body,

00:03:38 --> 00:03:48

in one part of it is affected with illness. The rest of the body stays up, you know, with fever and pain.

00:03:49 --> 00:03:57

So we all entertain you towards going on to our brothers and sisters in gossip. We ask Allah azza wa jal to have this depression they're facing

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

and to give them victory, inshallah.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:16

Inshallah Hamdulillah. We're very honored and grateful to have with me here, a world renowned historian, someone who doesn't need an introduction to a community and who doesn't need an introduction

00:04:17 --> 00:04:28

to the Muslim community, both locally and internationally. He's well known as the destroyer of Christianity. And most recently, the Pantheon is too

00:04:29 --> 00:04:57

if you know, you know, but more importantly is known for his breadth of knowledge in the field of history. Chanda Rashid is a historian, a poet that has been inspired by the likes of Allama Iqbal and so on, so inshallah I don't want to introduce him too much. I would love to without further ado insha Allah to pass the mic to him to educate us about this important topic of Palestine Inshallah, and also

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

Bolivar neolo, Iowa

00:05:48 --> 00:05:51

respected brothers and sisters.

00:05:52 --> 00:06:11

My initial topic today was fall of civilizations, but it has been changed in light of recent events in Palestine. And it is very befitting of us to talk about the issue of Palestine is history and what is the way forward as

00:06:12 --> 00:06:16

a community, the Muslim community of Canada

00:06:18 --> 00:06:29

so, I will put some pieces of information to you and I will try to be as clear as possible. And Inshallah, if there are any points left.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

Then we can discuss them in the q&a.

00:06:35 --> 00:06:43

So, I will still briefly touch upon the initial topic, fall of civilizations and link it directly to our current situation in Palestine.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:53

Why do civilizations rise and why do they fall? is a very important question all of us we have to understand

00:06:54 --> 00:06:59

what a civilization is, and how do we how they arise? How did it come about in the first place?

00:07:00 --> 00:07:02

And American historian

00:07:03 --> 00:07:23

he described a civilization as follows. His name is Wil Durant. He wrote a history of civilizations in 10 volumes, on the first page of the first volume of his book, our oriental heritage. He states, a civilization consists of four elements,

00:07:25 --> 00:07:38

economic provisions, political stability, pursuit of knowledge, and arts, and moral traditions. And all of these four elements rests upon one pillar,

00:07:39 --> 00:07:45

one pillar, and that pillar is sense of security and justice, you remove justice,

00:07:46 --> 00:08:09

and by consequent by by, by consequence, remove sense of security, former society, these four elements will collapse, a civilization will collapse. So in other words, he's saying that a civilization can come about by a collection of these four elements,

00:08:11 --> 00:08:16

political stability, economic provisions, pursuit of knowledge and arts and moral traditions.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:27

And the only way these four elements that make a civilization will survive, and last is through justice.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

And justice will bring about peace.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:33

Without peace,

00:08:34 --> 00:08:40

you cannot have progress. So going backwards, no progress.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:48

Without peace, no peace, without justice, without justice, no civilization.

00:08:50 --> 00:08:54

Period. So when a civilization comes about,

00:08:56 --> 00:08:59

and it starts to avoid justice,

00:09:01 --> 00:09:03

and then gives way to chaos,

00:09:04 --> 00:09:16

crime, corruption, injustice, that civilization will collapse. So the glad tidings I want to give you today is that any unjust power

00:09:17 --> 00:09:25

any entity that indulges in injustice, any country?

00:09:27 --> 00:09:39

Any military, any dynasty, any king, any government that indulges in injustice will collapse?

00:09:40 --> 00:09:49

It will fall. It will not last as what happened to all the civilizations that came before us.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:56

This is why Allah subhanaw taala states in the Quran. I will do we live in a shoot on the regime is Allah Han Rahim.

00:09:57 --> 00:10:00

See rueful orb fondue

00:10:00 --> 00:10:08

roquetas que ver con el capitan vaca Debian go in the line and see those who came before you

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

as they denied

00:10:11 --> 00:10:58

the truth that denied Allah denying Allah is denying justice period. Because Allah subhanaw taala he makes it a he makes it a point it makes it a point of our faith Deedle Islam that you must do justice in Surah Nisa, verse 135 and Surah toma ADA verse eight, Allah subhanaw taala in these both verses tells us do justice even if it goes against you. Even if you dislike a people, you must do justice because that is the recipe for success. That is closer to Toccoa. That is closer to knowing Allah being close to Allah being conscience of Allah.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:00


00:11:01 --> 00:11:04

And the reason the Islamic civilization

00:11:05 --> 00:11:07

came to prominence and rose

00:11:09 --> 00:11:13

to power it exercised for over 1000 years because was because of justice.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:30

It was because of justice, that the Muslim civilization became a powerhouse. The best scholars the best points, the best philosophers, the best thinkers, the best theologians, the best Quran, the best, everything

00:11:32 --> 00:11:32

but born

00:11:34 --> 00:11:35

in Muslim territories,

00:11:36 --> 00:11:41

and this continued for nearly 1000 years because of justice.

00:11:42 --> 00:11:51

The Quran promises justice, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam delivers that justice not only to Muslims, but even non Muslims,

00:11:52 --> 00:12:06

the Jews and the Christians. They lived in prosperity throughout the Muslim civilization, stretching from China to Spain, and then to South Asia, currently Pakistan.

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

We didn't want Han 100 years of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:12:10 --> 00:12:57

The Muslims had taken land between China to Spain, the largest stretch of land ever ruled by one group of people. And this was clearly directly foretold by Allah in Surah Surah Noor verse 55 Out of the we live in a shutdown regime what are the hola hola dinar Monome income were Amina Salah hot, like you're stuck leave a novel Earth camasta Klava Latina men cobbly him. It is a promise of Allah to those who believe among you do write his deed that Allah will give you succession in the land, Allah will make you rulers of the land, so long as you have these characteristics. It will be an outcome of your characters. Your characters have to be right, yes, you have to be believers in

00:12:57 --> 00:13:18

Allah. You believe in Allah, and do righteous deeds do justice, do justice, Allah will give you the land. Now reverse that. Reverse that you leave justice. And you start to disbelieve in Allah, all of that will be taken away from you. All of that will be taken away from you.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:29

So the conditions here are belief and righteous deeds. And the peak of righteousness is

00:13:30 --> 00:13:51

justice. This is all civilizations come about this is how the Muslim civilization came about. The reason why Muslim civilization was born was justice. Allah promised that justice in the Quran. Allah tells the world while Marsala que la Rahmatullah Allah Allah mean. Now this was a promise made to the world.

00:13:52 --> 00:14:11

And then the Sahaba the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came out, they took the land and then they established justice they ruled, Bill test, the ruled by justice, and we have many examples. I can give you examples upon examples, sense of responsibility.

00:14:14 --> 00:14:32

And there are so many examples I can give you from the time of Omar ricotta olive oil on Burma, Qatar hora de la Juan. A case came to him were in Egyptian Christian Egyptian young man was struck on the head by a Muslim, the son of the governor, the governor at the time was undetermined as for the long run,

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

the case came to Omar

00:14:36 --> 00:14:43

Omar gave the stick to the young man and he told him to strike the young man who struck you and his father.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:59

And the father said, What is my fault? My son committed the crime. Omar said if you had given tarbiyah to your son, if you had raised a good son, and had not given him this confidence

00:15:00 --> 00:15:03

that he is the son of the governor he would not have committed this crime.

00:15:04 --> 00:15:06

Fast forward to a moment of disease.

00:15:08 --> 00:15:14

The Christians of Damascus they come to America with the disease and they say our church, our pot,

00:15:16 --> 00:15:33

the Umayyad mosque, in the city of Damascus, half of it belonged to us. It's a very long story. I'm cutting it short. Our pot, the Muslims have taken it by force of Walid bin Abdul Malik, the Calif, who came before you.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:54

He took this part from us by force. And it was given to us by treaty when the city of Damascus was taken in the time of Omar ibn kebab. It was given to us it was taken from us by force by Walid amendment of the laser, he said, You were wronged.

00:15:56 --> 00:16:11

You have two choices, either to leave that half for the Muslims of Damascus because the population has grown or take all the churches in return. For this one church or one half, take all the churches and water

00:16:12 --> 00:16:21

who ties up is a region in Syria. They could not believe it. They could not believe the offer. They took it immediately.

00:16:22 --> 00:16:23


00:16:25 --> 00:16:34

justice, even if you dislike the others, you have to just this was the reason why Muslims, they became so powerful. They allowed

00:16:35 --> 00:16:56

freedom of religion, they allowed freedom of prosperity to Jews and Christians. For 1000 years, the Jewish people were protected by Muslims 1000 years, the Jewish people, majority of the Jewish people in the world, they lived under the protection of Islam in the Muslim world.

00:16:58 --> 00:17:33

From the Middle East, all the way to Spain. The Jewish people were hounded. They were hunted. They were persecuted. They were forcefully converted. They were massacred. They were genocides against them. And where did they find refuge? Where did they run for protection to the Islamic domains to the Muslim domains first Alain de luz when Alain de luz fell to the Catholics, in 1492, eventually, completely the conquest or re conquest of as they call it

00:17:35 --> 00:17:41

was complete. They went to the Ottoman territories to take refuge with the Ottoman justice.

00:17:43 --> 00:18:12

So this is what gave rise to the Islamic civilization in the Muslim civilization. And this is how civilizations fall when you avoid justice. When you give way to chaos, crime, destruction, corruption, injustice, whatever you have made, will collapse it will fall it will no longer exist. This is the summary of the topic I was going to address in the beginning coming to Palestine now.

00:18:13 --> 00:19:08

What is happening in Palestine and what the Israeli government is doing to the innocent people of Gaza, okay, is going to cause the collapse of this brutal, tyrannical, oppressive racist government. Okay, no one has to do anything, I can guarantee you, injustice cannot last. It will not go on forever. It will cause organically, naturally, it will cause the collapse of this oppressive, tyrannical, unjust and genocidal racist power called the State of Israel. That doesn't mean the Jewish people. That doesn't mean the Jewish people. This is the game. Some of these Israeli propagandists play anyone who criticizes the State of Israel, the atheistic, godless state of Israel

00:19:08 --> 00:19:11

and its actions, they accuse you immediately of anti semitism.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:14

anti Jewish.

00:19:15 --> 00:19:18

That's not the case. This is not what it is.

00:19:19 --> 00:19:34

Being anti Jewish, and being anti oppression, anti injustice, anti genocide, anti tyranny, anti racism are two different things. Would you all agree? Yes or no? Can I hear you?

00:19:35 --> 00:19:59

You agree, right. Okay, that's it. And this is why I believe this injustice, this genocide, this tyranny, this oppression will cause the collapse. This is the good news. The good news is that any unjust, tyrannical, oppressive power, no matter how strong how powerful it is, technologically, no matter how many stealth or

00:20:00 --> 00:20:05

Iron domes and other things they put in place, they cannot last they will be

00:20:06 --> 00:20:17

dismantled internally they will themselves collapse. People from within Israel will rise and they will challenge their own government because humanity human beings

00:20:18 --> 00:20:22

cannot sustain injustice for for for too long.

00:20:25 --> 00:20:35

So, history of Palestine why are we talking about Palestine? I want to very quickly give you a brief history of Palestine, why Palestine is so important to us.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:54

As I have clarified that Islam and Muslims protected, the Jewish people been to Israel for over 1000 years and I'm not making this up. I have evidence upon evidence that I will put down in a book

00:20:56 --> 00:21:42

The Jewish historians themselves, they testify to the fact that Jewish historians themselves, some of them Israeli historians, they testify to the fact that Muslims protected the Jewish people for over 1000 years, the Jewish people had the golden age, in a londolozi in Islamic Spain. There is an American Jewish historian called Zion zohore. He wrote a book title, a history of Sephardic and Fitzroy Jewry. He writes in this book, then that the Jewish people experienced the Golden Age from the 950 to 1250 ce II, in Spain under under the rule of Islam.

00:21:43 --> 00:22:21

The best poets, the best theologians, the best philosophers, the best thinkers, the best rabbis were born during this period in Spain. One of them is called Second Moses, Musa Thani, second Moses, because who is Musa al Oh, well, who is that? Musa alayhis salam, the founder of the religion as they see it, right. Musa Thani was born in Cordoba during the Muslim period is named was Musa bin Mamoon.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:28

Also known as minorities. The Jewish people know him as Rambam.

00:22:29 --> 00:22:45

Okay, and he is one of the greatest rabbis to have lived in the history of Judaism. Born in Cordoba, during Muslim rule, he wrote in the Arabic language in Hebrew characters, one of the greatest thinkers,

00:22:47 --> 00:22:50

points like Judah Halevy, born in Spain.

00:22:51 --> 00:23:13

There was a time when the most powerful king in the world, the most powerful ruler in the world was Abdul Rahman, the third, the ruler of Spain. rulings on carta by the city of Cordoba, he was the most powerful king not only in Western Europe, but in the world, the richest.

00:23:15 --> 00:23:45

And he declared himself to be the Khalifa. Khalifa al Muslimeen. Because the basset caliphate had declined in Baghdad, and the Fatimid Caliphate was rising in North Africa to rival that Fatima threat, he declared himself to be the Khalifa in Spain. And then he stopped the check, or He checked the advance of the Fatimid caliphate or Fatimid Shia empire in North Africa.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:50

His Prime Minister was a Jewish man.

00:23:51 --> 00:24:00

This is the point the Prime Minister of the most powerful Muslim king in the world, was a Jewish man, his name was heard by a bunch uproot

00:24:01 --> 00:24:03

the most powerful Jew in the world.

00:24:05 --> 00:24:22

So the point I'm making is that when these propagandist and news channels give air to things like this, that this is somehow an anti Jewish movement or anti semitic movement. This is a plain lie, our history tells us otherwise.

00:24:23 --> 00:24:28

This is a movement against injustice, oppression, tyranny, genocide,

00:24:29 --> 00:24:33

and killing of civilian people, civilians. Right.

00:24:34 --> 00:24:40

And there is nothing controversial about that. What I have said so far is perfectly legal and perfectly

00:24:42 --> 00:24:57

normal. This is what all reason reasonable people and just people are saying in the world. So why is this theme so important to Muslims? I read a verse from the Quran. In the beginning, my brothers and sisters, which is Surah Surah

00:24:58 --> 00:25:00

Surah Al Israel.

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

Ah is Surah 17 of the Quran? Allah subhanaw taala categorically tells us how do we live in a shutdown regime Subhana Allah the SRB Abdi Laila mineral Masjid Al haram, Al Masjid Al Aqsa Glory be to the one who took his servant Mohammed Salah Salam by night, from the sacred mosque in Makkah in brackets to the farthest Mosque in Jerusalem, Palestine, in brackets again.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:52

Allah, the baraka, how Allah Who, who surroundings we have blessed for who, primarily for us, the Muslims, Luria who made it, so that he may see our signs not only in Jerusalem, but in the heavens as well. This is a reference to the Night Journey,

00:25:53 --> 00:26:26

the Night Journey of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, when, as a miracle, the Prophet sallallaahu Salam was taken in one night from Mecca to Jerusalem, and in Jerusalem, the Messenger of Allah at the very sight of the Temple of Solomon. In other words, must you don't OXA which was initially originally built by Solomon or a Salam, at that very point, at that very spot, the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam led, all Gambia in praise.

00:26:27 --> 00:26:38

And from there, he was taken to the seven heavens, and he met different prophets in different heavens.

00:26:39 --> 00:27:25

The hadith is very long. So the point is, that is the importance of magical OXA the third holiest site of Islam is established in the Muslim scripture. We don't claim rights over it just because we like the site, just we just because we like the gold on the Dome of the Rock, just because we like the climate of that city. Not just because we like the land of Palestine for some reason. No, just like just because there is gold in there. No, it's because of Allah. Allah tells us that this Masjid Al Aqsa is one of the holiest sites of Islam.

00:27:27 --> 00:27:30

And this was established by the Messenger of Allah praying,

00:27:31 --> 00:27:35

leading Umbria at that very spot.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:41

This is why so it's so important. In fact, the Prophet salallahu Salam stated

00:27:42 --> 00:27:46

in an authentic hadith, that when you pray in Masjid Al haram,

00:27:47 --> 00:27:57

in congregation, how much is the reward? Who is going to tell me most of the Haram in Makkah, when you pray in congregation with Jamar how much is the reward?

00:27:58 --> 00:27:59


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

100,000 How much is the reward in much of the novel way?

00:28:10 --> 00:28:12

Good Good guess Mashallah.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:22

1000 1000 100,000 in much of the haram 1000 in much sugar Naboo II

00:28:24 --> 00:28:36

and then 500 prays in Masjid Al Aqsa. So what is the profit telling you in this hadith? What is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam telling you in this Hadees there are three sites for Muslims.

00:28:37 --> 00:28:41

In another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said a Muslim should travel.

00:28:43 --> 00:28:45

A Muslim should travel to three places.

00:28:48 --> 00:28:51

And what are those three places? Monica,

00:28:52 --> 00:28:53


00:28:54 --> 00:29:10

and Alexa, because these are the massages, but you got haram, much of the Navi, and muscle OXA. So these are the three most important sites of Islam. No one can take them away from us, no matter how hard they try.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:27

These sites belong to Islam and Muslims. And what did the Muslims do with these sites? Is the question. This is what I want to address very quickly. How did the Muslims when they ruled the city of Jerusalem for more than 1000 years, what did they do with it?

00:29:28 --> 00:29:30

Did they stop the Jewish people from praying there?

00:29:32 --> 00:29:34

Did they tell the Christians to get lost?

00:29:35 --> 00:29:36

Or did they allow them to pray in there?

00:29:38 --> 00:29:59

Brace yourself for evidence. I'm going to present some evidence to you so that you realize that Muslims are the only people who have behaved the best historically, when they had possession of this holy site, which belongs to all three faiths. No doubt is wholly for Christians is wholly for Jews. It's totally for Muslims. But the question is historical

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

He who behaved the best, who deserves to hold it? Who took care of it? Who opened the gates of it?

00:30:11 --> 00:30:29

So let's talk about what happened to it. First of all, Jerusalem is a city, which was initially taken by usually a balloon, or a Salam. After Musa al Islam tried to take this land the land of Canaan, or Cannan

00:30:30 --> 00:31:08

that's what the people of Philistine people of Palestine were called. The Israelites took this place just after Musa alayhis salam this land, okay, they claimed it for the Israelites then came after moosari Salam, Israelite prophets who live the dowry Salam and Philemon la Salam. They ruled directly from Jerusalem, or Jerusalem, as the capital. That will delay Salam first and then Solomon. Then after Solomon la Salam passed away nearly 1000 BC remember the dates? Nearly 1000 BC according to estimates, okay.

00:31:09 --> 00:31:12

Soon after that, the Jewish people

00:31:13 --> 00:31:50

are actually we shouldn't call them Jewish people. We should call them the Israelites by no Israel, because this title Jew came very late. It was used for the Israelites by the Romans. Okay, because the province was called Judea because of the name of the province. Everyone who lived in that province was called a Jew. Okay? Because not everyone was from the children of Judah, Judah was one tribe, okay. There were many other Jewish tribes. So, after Solomon, or Solomon, King Solomon passed away.

00:31:52 --> 00:32:19

These two states split with from each other. The North became the State of Israel, the South became the state of Judea. In the north, there were 10 tribes of the Israelites in the south, there were two and a half tribes of Israelites, the judahite, the Levites, and the manger mites in the north, the remaining 10 tribes. Then in 721 BC 720 107 23 BC, if I remember correctly, the Assyrians

00:32:21 --> 00:32:24

are people who ruled Northern Iraq

00:32:25 --> 00:33:18

and parts of Syria and some parts of Turkey. These people will call a Syrians. They came and attacked the northern state of Israel. They attacked the northern state of Israel and left the southern state of Judea alone. Okay, Julius capital was Jerusalem. So two and a half tribes will ruling at the time, the state of Judea with the capital Jerusalem at the middle, okay, so are you with me so far? Are you with me so far, everyone? Okay. After Soleimani Lai Salam passed away after he died, the Israelites split into two states politically speaking now North, the State of Israel 10 tribes, the South, almost two and a half tribes in the south in Judea. Right now. A Syrians attack

00:33:18 --> 00:34:02

from the north and the decimate completely decimate the State of Israel and take 10 Jewish or Israelite tribes into exile. Are you listening? This is almost 700 years before Esau esalaam 721 BC. Okay, so they decimate the northern state of Israel 10 tribes of the Israelites disappeared from history, they are gone. To this day. We don't know what happened to them, where they went, what the law was, what version of Judaism they followed, what view they had on Musa al Salaam and his teachings. What we know today of Judaism, predominantly mainly comes from two and a half tribes, the Levites in the Judah heights and the Benjamites.

00:34:03 --> 00:34:49

So they remained in the south. So 10 tribes simply disappear from the face of the earth, they are taken into exile, they are enslaved, and we don't know thenceforth. What happened to them? Now many people claim descent from those 10 tribes, including Pashtoon batons. In Pakistan. If you sit with some Pashtoon elders in the tribal regions of Pakistan, you ask them What is your religion? They will say we are we are those 10 Lost Tribes of Israel. Although they have no grounds to claim that I don't accept that theory. That's, that's a very famous a prominent theory among the stone people that we are those 10 Lost Tribes of Israel. In reality, the cartoons are a mixture of a lot of

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

people. Okay, a lot of people that includes the Turks, that includes the Greeks, okay, and many other people, many other nations, right, so there is no ground

00:35:00 --> 00:35:37

have no basis to claim the burden. Likewise, some other people like Khazaria, near Georgia, there was a state called Khazaria. Those people also claimed, or they were asked by his neighbor to uproot in the 10th century if they are though they are those 10 Lost Tribes, because the Israelites were always looking for them, what happened to them? What happened to the Scripture, what happened to their version of the Old Testament or the the writings of the prophets, everything was lost, gone, completely gone from history. What remained was two tribes. Now what happened to these two tribes in the year 587 BCE

00:35:39 --> 00:35:42

587 BCE, the king of Babylon,

00:35:44 --> 00:36:10

known as never can Azhar or in the Arabic language, Dr. Nasir, this king, he attacked the remaining or the remnants of the Israelites that ruled the state of Judea, with from the capital called Jerusalem. So he took the entire population of the Jewish people or the Israelites, excuse me, the Israelites, he took them to Iraq, to Babylon.

00:36:12 --> 00:36:47

Stay with me on this, he took them to Babylon. And then these Israelites, they started to live in Iraq. And this is where Daniel Prophet Daniel or Daniel, Daniel Ali salaam, the famous Prophet, Prophet Daniel, right, in the time of our Macatawa, the allawah. And when parts of Iraq were conquered, they found they actually found the body of Prophet Daniel, Daniel Ali Salam, okay, and then they buried it again. Okay. So, Prophet Daniel was born in Iraq, in Babylon.

00:36:49 --> 00:36:50

Then, having lived

00:36:52 --> 00:37:00

in Iraq, the Israelites were allowed to come back to the land of Palestine,

00:37:01 --> 00:37:11

to the city of Jerusalem by a Persian king, accompanied Persian king called Cyrus Cyrus. A lot of people think,

00:37:12 --> 00:37:24

with some good reasons that he could have been Volker nine. He could have been Volker rain. Okay. A lot of people claim that Alexander Iskander

00:37:25 --> 00:37:51

bazooka rain. But that theory cannot be true because little Kernighan was a believer. Volker main was a MOBA. He believed in Allah subhanaw taala because Allah mentions him in good terms in the Quran, Allah mentions is Eman. Right? And Alexander was a pagan Alexander was, you know, a devotee of pagan gods. Okay, this is very clear from history to Alexander is not a candidate.

00:37:52 --> 00:38:45

Even though some of Sins of the Quran mentioned him as an option, but that option cannot be sustained. Others say it could be Cyrus. Okay, who was a Persian king who allowed the Israelites to return out of his goodwill out of His mercy for the Israelites, he allowed them to return to the land of Palestine to build the temple. Okay, again. So when booked on Sr, Nebuchadnezzar, he took the city of Jerusalem in 587 BCE, he completely destroyed the Temple of Solomon, much of the AXA, was destroyed by the Babylonians. Right. So in 537, CBC 537 BCE, this Archimede king called Cyrus, okay, have you heard of these kings called Xerxes and Darius or Darius? Have you heard of them?

00:38:46 --> 00:39:27

Mashallah, our histories already? You know, if we don't know the history of Islam, how are we going to know the history of other civilizations? It's very important for us to study history, my brothers and sisters, because this is our strength, history is our power Allah subhanaw taala discusses history in the Quran. 30% of the Quran is history, Stories of the Prophets. History. Why? Why? Because it's important. Its lessons. It's precedent. It teaches you what happened before you came and then warns you about the future yes or no? Good. I like you, because you're responding mashallah, okay. So,

00:39:28 --> 00:40:00

now, after Cyrus allows the Israelites to return to Jerusalem, they build the Masjid Al Aqsa again. They build the temple again. And many Israelite prophets come at this time preaching to the Israelites because these people were repeatedly rebellious against Allah. Allah kept sending prophets to them. One after another. Many prophets came prophets like Ezekiel. Some people claimed all Kiefel is Ezekiel but we don't know we don't

00:40:00 --> 00:40:47

have any evidence for that? And prophets like Isaiah in the Arabic language, a Shia, Isaiah, amazingly, he left behind writings that we can still find in some shape or form in the Old Testament, and he mentioned an Arabian Prophet in prophecies. He said they will be an Arabian Prophet coming from the children of Keidar que dar is the second son of his mind la Salam, according to the book of Genesis, so que dar will give birth to a Prophet from Arabia, and his location is geographical location is mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter 42. The entire chapter is about one person and it can be no one else except Muhammad Rasool Allah SallAllahu sallam. I believe Isaiah 42

00:40:47 --> 00:40:56

is the most powerful the most explicit reference to Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem in most clay words. So all these prophets are coming to Israelites one after another.

00:40:59 --> 00:41:04

And then Israelites and the kings were ruling them. Then came the Romans.

00:41:05 --> 00:41:18

The Romans took the city of Jerusalem or the province, the country called Judea from the Israelites and they started to plant puppets to rule Judea on their behalf. Okay,

00:41:19 --> 00:41:21

brothers are you going to sleep on me?

00:41:22 --> 00:41:36

Okay, everyone, please stand up the brothers not the sisters, the brothers please stand up. I want you to stretch. I know this history lessons can be the shakes pleased that our shakes, please remain seated the youngsters I want the young brothers. Okay, if you think you're young, just stand up.

00:41:39 --> 00:41:41

Stretch your arms.

00:41:42 --> 00:41:45

Give a tight hug to the brother right next to you.

00:41:49 --> 00:41:50

And now sit down in Sharla is.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:05


00:42:07 --> 00:42:20

off after the Romans come on the scene. And I'm fast forwarding. By the way, I'm going very fast so that we can actually get to the point I want to get to. This is a very brief summary of history of Palestine and the city of Jerusalem.

00:42:21 --> 00:42:48

The Romans come the Romans start to rule through proxy are by proxy, the province of Judea and they want the Jewish people to live as they like no problem. Just do your Lord, do your temple, do your priests and everything. Okay, do what you want, but don't disturb the peace. Give us our taxes. Give the Caesar is tax. Okay. At this time, Allah subhanaw taala sends one of the greatest prophets

00:42:49 --> 00:43:22

to warn the Israelites about the hypocrisy. They had started to play a game with the Scripture. They started to change the law. They started to change the Scripture. So now comes a Salah Salaam. He's born of Maria Malay salaam, from a noble descent of very pious people. Saleh own RB dune people like the Korea and Maria Maria Salam people who were always busy in worshipping Allah very sincere people. Okay, from this family is born isa Ali Salam

00:43:23 --> 00:43:24

by a miracle

00:43:27 --> 00:44:16

and Allah subhanaw taala sends him to Israelites to warn them Ya Bani Israel, or about Allah Robbie, we're back home in the home I usually Kabila forgot harem Allahu Allah Hill Jana Wah ma na Ma Ma Li dolly Mina Mennonites are all the Israelites, all the children of Israel. Worship Allah your Lord and my Lord. don't ascribe partners with him. Don't do shit with him. Don't do shit because the Israelites had started to do Shirke already many times, repeatedly the prophets came to them to warn them and easily Salam came for the same reason. That's where Allah subhanaw taala he states that Esau esalaam even cursed many of them because of the hypocrisy and they shake

00:44:18 --> 00:44:47

each other Salam he cursed many of them. Okay. And Allah says in the Quran, how they will live in Chicago regime is hula Rouhani Rahim Lorena Latina. Latina Latina cover Roman Bani Israel. Allah al Hassan Tao, the ace of memoriam Allah subhanaw taala cursed the Israelites, those who disbelieved that this believing Israelites that disbelieving Israelites on the tongue of Isa and doweled

00:44:48 --> 00:44:54

because these people were a bunch of hypocrites. So there were many different sects in

00:44:55 --> 00:45:00

Jerusalem at the time, mainly the Sadducees and the Pharisees were

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

or to six of the Israelites in Jerusalem who were very active in Mughal OXA or the Temple of Solomon. Okay, at this time a Salah Salam warned them repeatedly of imminent destruction. If you don't listen, if you don't pay heed if you don't start worshiping Allah sincerely stop playing games with the law of Allah stop changing the law of Musa alayhis salam stop. And if you don't listen, there is imminent destruction. Guess what? A solid Salam is raised high. They even tried to kill him. They claim to have killed him. But Isa esalaam was protected saved. And this is clearly foretold in the Bible itself. In the Bible, there is an entire chapter there is a prophecy about

00:45:46 --> 00:46:03

easily salaam that categorically states that even a scratch will not come on this person. He will call upon Allah Allah will save him he will be a chosen one of Allah angels will lift him on the wings. Angels will raise him high ball Rafa who

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


00:46:07 --> 00:46:21

Okay, Allah subhanaw taala baldauf Our Allah Alayhi Allah subhanaw taala raised him towards himself. So angels. So this is Psalm 91, Psalm 91.

00:46:23 --> 00:46:53

If you go there there is a direct clear prophecy about a prophet of Allah, who will be threatened by his enemies, his life will be in danger, and Allah will protect him he will call upon Allah and Allah will protect him and long life will Allah give him what is the long life he is alive right now in the heavens with Allah subhanaw taala to return before the end times. So he says Islam did his job. He became

00:46:54 --> 00:47:41

the Warner for better Israel and the giver of the good news of the coming of another prophet who will come after me and he will do the job that I have left undone. Okay. So rasool Allah, Prophet Muhammad Salah solemn came as prophesized by Lisa Ali Salam, okay, and there are many reference to that. Okay, we can find references to the coming of another prophet. Even though the biblical text or the text attributed to the message attributed to isa Salam in the gospels, even though it has been altered and changed and corrupted. There are elements of truth there. For example, the Gospel of John mentions the coming of another prophet after his Allah salaam, okay. And he called him

00:47:41 --> 00:48:18

Paraclete. Okay, the Comforter, the solicitor, the good, the person who will bring the good news, right. So now after ESA, this alarm went having warned the Israelites, the Israelites did not believe in Him. In fact, they tried to kill him, like they were killing other prophets before him. Okay. So what was the outcome? The outcome was Roman destruction of the city of Jerusalem. The Romans came in, in the year 70 C, and they destroyed the city of Jerusalem, and they destroyed muster OXA

00:48:20 --> 00:48:21

they raised it to the ground

00:48:22 --> 00:49:09

in 70 C. And since then, that temple was not built by the Jewish people. They couldn't build it. Okay, so they were completely banished, destroyed. Then whatever remained of the Israelites, who were by now called the Jews, by the Romans, because they lived in this province called Judea. The name Jew was given to the Israelites, because of the province they were living in, called Judea. Now by this time, okay, whatever remained another revolt, and other revolt, or rebellion was launched by the Israelites or the Jewish people in Judea. This was called the reward the revolt of Bar Kokhba.

00:49:11 --> 00:49:59

Bar Kochba was a messianic figure who claimed to be a Messiah, and Israelites, they followed him and he decided to fight the Romans. The Romans came down very hard. Once again, Romans are a superpower at the time, and the Emperor ruling at the time was one of the most powerful emperors to have ruled Rome, and that was Hadrian. That was Emperor Hadrian, okay, who ruled all the way from Britain, up to the Middle East, this is how huge his empire was. So he commanded his generals to raise the entire city to the ground completely leveled it. So the city of Jerusalem n 132, C, E. Now we have moved from BC into C E, common era 131 32 C.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:13

The city of Jerusalem was completely leveled, completely leveled by the Romans destroyed, and the Jewish people were told, if any one of you is ever seen in the city, you will be killed on the spot.

00:50:14 --> 00:51:11

This is when the Jewish Diaspora started Jews, the Israelites got dispersed in the whole world. Okay, and they were heavily persecuted. Soon after this occurred when the Romans banished the Jewish people on pain of death from the city of Jerusalem or the land of Palestine. You cannot come back now. You cannot live in the city never again. Your Temple is no more, your city is no more. And then the city was reestablished and renamed Aelia or Elia, named after the Emperor himself because his name was Elias Hadrian us. Okay, so the city of Jerusalem was renamed Ilya or Elia, named after the Roman emperor. Okay, so now from this time onwards, the Jewish people could not live in the city of

00:51:11 --> 00:51:12


00:51:13 --> 00:51:25

They were not allowed. And then what happens soon after all of this, the Romans start to convert to Christianity, they start to accept Christianity.

00:51:26 --> 00:51:32

Okay. And within 150 years after the revolt of Bar Kokhba,

00:51:33 --> 00:52:22

the Christians grow in numbers massively, to the extent even though the Christians were heavily persecuted by some Roman emperors as well, but the conversion to Christianity did not stop in the Roman world. Okay. So by the year 300 CE, Christians had become a very big strong presence in the Roman Empire. And one of the reasons Constantine converted to Christianity was because he was heavily influenced by Christian thinkers are Christians around him, and people in his family had converted to Christianity. Initially, he supported shirk, which is Trinity. He supported it, but then he regretted his decision because he didn't know better. He was a pagan, he had no idea what

00:52:22 --> 00:53:06

this religion is. So he accepted the false version first. And then he was advised that there is only one God, it cannot be divided into three persons, right? Jesus is not God. So he accepted or he admitted that he was wrong. And he accepted a Unitarian version of Christianity, and he died upon that. That's why some Constantius who came to power after him, he was a Unitarian Christian. So why am I telling you this? The Christians now when they came to power, when they got into powerful positions, they started to persecute the Jewish people. They started to tell the Jewish people, you are not allowed in Jerusalem. You killed our God, who is God?

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

Who is God,

00:53:10 --> 00:53:58

to Christians, you killed. The Christians believe that Jesus is part of the Trinity divine God. So because the Jewish people were accused of conspiring against isa Salam according to the biblical text, according to the four Gospels, the four gospels indict the Israelites, the Jewish people living in the city of Jerusalem for conspiring to kill recently Salam, and then the gospel state he was killed on the cross. While the Quran says Omar Cthulhu, or masala boo, wala kenshoo Bella home, the Gospel of St. No, he was killed, and who killed him? Most importantly, the Jewish people together with the Romans, it were the Jewish people of the city of Jerusalem, who wanted Jesus dead,

00:53:59 --> 00:54:20

because he was a radical preacher preaching a radical message to them, and they didn't want to follow him. And they claimed he was a sorcerer. He was he was an impostor, he was a false prophet. Therefore, if we kill him on the cross, he's proven false. And that's why many of them are claiming that how can you be a true prophet when he was crucified on the cross, a disgraceful death.

00:54:22 --> 00:54:25

So the Christian started to settle scores.

00:54:27 --> 00:55:00

Then one of the Christian philosophers and theologians had to save the Jewish people from destruction or extinction. St. Augustine, St. Augustine wrote in the fourth century, in his writings in his commentaries that allow the Jewish people to live don't kill them. Why? Because they are a living testimony of the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ, because they are the ones who preserve the Old Testament for us. It is in the Old Testament, we read prophecies about Jesus Christ. So we need the Jewish people to live to bear testimony to the Old Testament. So that

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

We can believe in Jesus Christ. So this was his logic. So Jewish people were somewhat tolerated, but humiliated among the Christian people.

00:55:10 --> 00:55:18

Fast forward, the Jewish people suffer daily, they're not allowed to come to the city of Jerusalem by the Christians. Okay.

00:55:19 --> 00:55:20

And then

00:55:21 --> 00:55:28

comes Islam. Fast forward, I'm moving very far I'm jumping from centuries to centuries.

00:55:29 --> 00:55:32

Right mentioning the most important things I want to mention.

00:55:33 --> 00:56:18

For the first time in the history of the Jewish people in 500 years, when they were allowed to come back, this to the city of Jerusalem was during the Muslim period, the Muslims opened Jerusalem, for the Jewish people that you are most welcome to come here and worship as you like, stay as you like. And they lived there. So long as the Christians are ruling the city, in fact, when the Christians surrendered the city of Jerusalem to the Muslims, when on Bourbon kata radula, Juan, he came to take the keys of the city from the ruler of the city called Sophronius, who was a Christian Patriarch who was the leader of the church in Jerusalem. He insisted that I will give the keys to your ruler, not

00:56:18 --> 00:56:51

to a general not to a soldier, get your ruler to come and take the keys from me. That's why Mr. Macabre the law when he traveled from Medina to Jerusalem. And you know, the famous story that he was walking holding the rope of the camel, and they thought the one on the camel is the key leaf, but he was the servant. The Caleb was holding the rope and pulling the rope of the camel, right at that time. So Fronius specifically asked Omar bin Khattab, you will not allow the Jews to come to Jerusalem. They put it as a clause in the treaty.

00:56:52 --> 00:57:28

Okay, so Omar agreed to it for the time being rather alone, but later on, Christians are convinced they were convinced that the Jewish people shouldn't be allowed to live in the city of Jerusalem, because they have as much right over the city as anyone else. Because they have some kind of affinity. This is the temple Okay, Temple of Solomon, we call it much of the Aqsa So Christians to humiliate the Jewish people. Okay, we're dumping all the rubbish at the site of the Temple of Solomon

00:57:30 --> 00:57:50

at the site of Machu Aqsa so when Ahmad when Qatar came into the city of Jerusalem, he asked where is Masjid? OXA it could not be found. It was buried under rubbish of yours. Imagine if you are dumping your rubbish for years in one place? Are you going to see the ground?

00:57:52 --> 00:57:53

Yes or no?

00:57:54 --> 00:58:19

So the ground was missing. So Ahmed Macatawa lawan got some Jewish rabbis to identify the spot where the Temple of Solomon or much of the Aqsa was, that spot was cleaned. Omer himself ragi Allah Juan with his companions, and with some Jewish rabbis, they got together and they clean the place, they removed all the rubbish, and then they discovered the Dome of the Rock.

00:58:21 --> 00:58:29

Sorry, the rock upon which the dome was built later on, and the spot of Masjid Al Aqsa upon which the masjid was built.

00:58:31 --> 00:59:21

This is the beginning of the rule of Islam in Jerusalem and thenceforth. In this treaty on Burma, Qatar gave freedom to Christians to worship as they like in the city, no one will touch you. This treaty can be found in the history of Mr. Bibbins era poverty and the entire text of the treaty. The treaty of Jerusalem, okay, is there it's called Ardell or Maria. Okay, I handle or Maria It is called either or Maria. It can be found in the text of Imam embroidery, the Tabriz history. Then, one after another, Muslim rulers came to power, and the rule, borrow my year old, and then came back to our bass. Throughout this period, the Jews were allowed to flourish in the cities with the

00:59:21 --> 00:59:34

Christians. This was the first time when the Jews and the Christians live together in peace side by side, you know, who brought them together? Who Guess who, who brought them together, who Muslims brought them together.

00:59:36 --> 00:59:47

They were not able to live together in this city. This city would not be in peace. If the Jews and the Christians tried to take it together. No, it were the Muslims who allowed them to live in peace.

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

And you know who says this? Karen Armstrong, she wrote a history of Jerusalem. In her book she states for the first time when three Abrahamic faiths

01:00:00 --> 01:00:17

I lived side by side in this city together in peace was during the rule of Islam, when the Muslims are ruling the city. This is how Muslims treated the city. In fact, in the ninth century, a Jewish commentator on the Torah wrote

01:00:18 --> 01:00:37

a commentary on Torah. It is called Sepher Petrona Torah. It's an anonymous commentary. We don't know who the author is. He writes in this, that today, the temple is an honorable place of worship. We worship in the temple together with the Gentiles with the Muslims.

01:00:39 --> 01:00:41

So, so long as

01:00:42 --> 01:00:49

the city of Jerusalem remained in Muslim hands, everyone was free to worship as they liked.

01:00:50 --> 01:00:56

In fact, the city of Jerusalem was temporarily taken from the Muslims by who?

01:00:57 --> 01:00:58

by who?

01:00:59 --> 01:01:06

Who is going to tell me what happened? It remained in Muslim hands for 400 years, and then something happened.

01:01:11 --> 01:01:12

What happened?

01:01:13 --> 01:01:14

Who took it?

01:01:15 --> 01:01:16

I can't hear you.

01:01:17 --> 01:01:24

Crusaders crusades crusades. In the year 1099.

01:01:25 --> 01:01:28

The Crusaders came all the way from Britain and France and Germany.

01:01:29 --> 01:01:30


01:01:31 --> 01:02:17

they took the city of Jerusalem by storm. At this time the city of Jerusalem was being ruled by the Fattah means the Fatimids, the Shia Fatimids, had taken the city of Jerusalem from the Seljuks for some some time, and the Crusaders came, and they found the fact that he is in possession of the city. So the Crusaders, they besieged the city, okay, they took the city, and in July 1099, they massacred the entire population. They killed Muslims, Jews and Christians, Muslims, Jews and Christians, they did not discriminate. So they killed the entire population. And then when the Crusaders came to power, once again, they said to the Jewish people, no more. The city is not for

01:02:17 --> 01:02:18


01:02:19 --> 01:02:46

You cannot live here because they were extremely anti Jew, on the way to Jerusalem from Europe. When they passed through Germany, they killed every single Jewish population that came in the way. Why am I telling you all of this? I'm telling you this so that you realize how the Muslims treated the land of Palestine, how they establish peace and justice for everyone.

01:02:48 --> 01:02:58

Why the Muslims are the best candidate to rule the city and this country. Anyone else will simply not be able to do justice because every time they took it

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

they massacred

01:03:02 --> 01:03:21

when the Crusaders took it, the Catholics they massacred when the State of Israel was established later on. What did they do? They went on a genocide spree ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians, moving them killing them burning the houses.

01:03:24 --> 01:03:25


01:03:27 --> 01:03:44

after the Crusades, what happens? Crusaders keep the city of Jerusalem for nearly 90 years. In 1187 ce Sultan Salahuddin Allah UB he comes and he takes the city back from the Crusaders and then opens his gates once again.

01:03:46 --> 01:03:58

Once again, he tells the Christians you want to stay stay in peace. Okay, Christians, when Phil tonsil Adina up when you took the city Christians were shivering. They were shaking. Why?

01:03:59 --> 01:04:00

They were shaking. Why?

01:04:01 --> 01:04:02

Tell me why.

01:04:04 --> 01:04:13

They were. They were in a state of fear. They were extremely scared. Why? Because they knew what they had done.

01:04:14 --> 01:04:29

They knew what they had done when they took the city. So they were expecting a retaliation. They were expecting a tit for tat. Right. What assault Ansel Ogden do after he takes the city he bans anyone to do any violence against anyone.

01:04:30 --> 01:04:59

In fact, people who are taken slaves by Muslims, they were freed in 1000s. In fact, sultanzoy Aldini said those Crusaders, men, women and children who want to go back to Europe, we will guard you all the way to the coast, our soldiers our armies will guard you all the way to the coast to so that you can take ships back to Europe so that nobody does you know, people were angry. People of this land the Muslims are angry they wanted revenge.

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

will ban protected them.

01:05:02 --> 01:05:51

And then when the city was taken he allowed everyone to worship as they like. And then Muslims had the city again. And then Ottomans came to power later on. After the ubitx the Mamelukes came to power the Mamelukes rule rule the land of Hejaz, not only McCann, Medina, but also the city of Jerusalem. So from the Mamelukes. The city was taken by the Ottomans. Again, the Ottomans allowed absolute freedom in the city of Jerusalem for all fates. In fact, one of the Israeli scholars His name is Amnon Cohan, Amnon Cohan, he published two volumes, or two volumes book in 1994. This book is titled a word from within. In this book, Amnon Cohan, he studies

01:05:53 --> 01:05:54

the court record

01:05:57 --> 01:06:16

the Islamic court record during the Ottoman period from 1500 to 15 7070, odd years. So he takes out court records from Sharia court of Jerusalem and he studies it for one purpose. He wanted to see how many Jewish people were filing the cases with the kadhi.

01:06:17 --> 01:06:24

So he found 1000 Jewish cases filed at the Islamic court. Are you listening every

01:06:25 --> 01:06:58

one 1000 Jewish cases filed at the Islamic court between 1500 to 1570. The Ottoman period despite the fact that the Jewish people had their own courts called Beth den, in Jerusalem, so instead of going to the rabbinic courts, or Bionicle coats in the city of Jerusalem, they were coming to the Gotti mostly women. Why? He explains because justice was delivered quicker from the kadhi than the rabbi's.

01:06:59 --> 01:07:02

The women, Jewish women,

01:07:03 --> 01:07:07

they could see that the commies are more generous to them, then the rabbi's are

01:07:09 --> 01:07:53

1000 Jewish cases filed and this is in this book titled a word from within Amnon. Cohan, a m n o n COHE. And this is his name, Google it, Amazon coherent, and you will find the book. And then in the conclusion he writes in the conclusion having studied these cases, he says the Jewish people of the city of Jerusalem, Ottoman Jerusalem had no reasons to moan about anything. They were even more happier than the Muslims. They were successful business people. The sultanzoy subjects were the Jewish subjects of the Sultan, were very, very well protected and happy in the city of Jerusalem.

01:07:55 --> 01:07:56

And this continues,

01:07:58 --> 01:07:59

all of this changed.

01:08:00 --> 01:08:14

All of this changed after the First World War, when the Ottomans lost the city of Jerusalem to the British. General Allenby enter the city of Jerusalem in

01:08:15 --> 01:08:30

during the First World War, however, having taken the city from the Ottomans, and then the British foreign secretary at the time, for some reason, writes a letter to raw Lord Rothschild, a very prominent

01:08:32 --> 01:08:42

Jewish businessman banker in London, promising him the land of Palestine even though it did not belong to him or did not belong to Britain.

01:08:43 --> 01:08:50

against the wishes of the Palestinian people, this land was given to a bunch of Zionist

01:08:51 --> 01:09:00

propagandists and activists. Designing Zionism is a modern movement that came about in its current form in the 19th century.

01:09:01 --> 01:09:06

It has nothing to do with Judaism, the Jewish people, okay,

01:09:07 --> 01:09:10

as much as some of them may like this movement, but

01:09:11 --> 01:09:14

many Jewish people do not agree with it.

01:09:15 --> 01:09:29

They don't own it. In fact, many of them claim many of the Jewish rabbis I have met personally, they say that this is a godless. This is a godless, godless, atheistic movement. These people don't believe in God.

01:09:30 --> 01:09:50

Then they use the name of Judaism and the Jewish people they use. They claim that this is a Jewish state, but it is not. rabbis are saying this to me, and some of them you can find on social media. There are Jewish rabbis in New York and London. They are saying that this is an abomination.

01:09:52 --> 01:10:00

This is not Judaism. This is something else. So these bunch of godless atheistic activists in the name of God

01:10:00 --> 01:10:51

deism established a homeland, on Palestinian territory on the land of the Palestinians by force, and then committed acts of terrorism against not only the Palestinians, but even the British colonial personnel. They started to blow people up when they were not getting the land of Palestine quick enough. So the British quickly handed over the land to the Zionist movement in 1948, and left it to them. And since then, they have been caught confiscating land, neighborhood by neighborhood, house by house, inch by inch yard by yard, and those settlements that are being made in the land of Palestine by settlers who are a bunch of terrorists with guns. bullies who come to are harmless,

01:10:51 --> 01:11:17

okay? Innocent people, bully them on gunpoint, asking to leave their homes and get lost. And then you see people Zinus from New York, from Paris, from London, confiscating houses of Palestinian people, they're leaving their homes here in these countries going to another place, and other people today land and driving them out and claiming ownership of the land.

01:11:20 --> 01:11:23

And then, the people of Gaza

01:11:25 --> 01:11:49

they have been under this prison for the last 16 years. This is the largest concentration camp in the world. To this day. You know, when people talk about colonialism, and its atrocities. One of the things they always mentioned is concentration camps. In Libya, for example, the Italians,

01:11:50 --> 01:12:00

they put half the population of Libya, in concentration camps, half half the country was

01:12:01 --> 01:12:19

driven into concentration camps by Libya. Sorry, by Italians in Libya, Mussolini? Okay. The idea was to imprison the population so that they cannot support the resistance movement of Omar matar and his companions.

01:12:21 --> 01:13:18

But why do that to civilians? Fine, you want to fight the competence? That's your problem, you are you are a colonial power in the first place. You have no right to be there. But if people resist your occupation, you need to fight them, not the civilians, not the population. So what the Israeli government is doing today, they have imprisoned 2 million people in a very small space. This is the most concentrated piece of land in the world, where you have 2 million people confined to a space, which is 25 miles by five miles, 25 miles or kilometers long. And five miles or kilometers, if I'm not mistaken, I don't know. Five kilometers or miles wise 25 by five miles 25 miles long, five miles

01:13:18 --> 01:13:25

wide. In this little space, 2 million people have been combat confined, they do not have electricity.

01:13:27 --> 01:13:35

And they are at the mercy of the Zionist godless, atheistic terrorist genocidal

01:13:37 --> 01:13:42

proper propagandist and and and these people who are

01:13:43 --> 01:13:46

doing the administration of this concentration camp.

01:13:47 --> 01:13:49

These are heartless godless people.

01:13:51 --> 01:13:57

They have no mercy. They don't care if children are dying of hunger and starvation.

01:13:58 --> 01:14:17

people of Gaza have no access to medicine, medicine and medical aid. They have no access to proper education, if they want to leave Gaza for medical attention. For Egypt, they cannot just go they cannot pack the bags and go. They are at the mercy of the border guards.

01:14:18 --> 01:14:59

Okay, this is the largest concentration camp in the world today. So if anyone tells you that these people deserve this, And Alhamdulillah there are many many reasonable voices. You hear them on news channels who are challenging the narrative, the narrative, the mainstream narrative of politicians, and news outlets. For some reason, most prominent politicians and news outlets are not speaking the truth. But there are people who are speaking the truth and we're saying that you cannot possibly do a collective punishment due to the actions of some whatever the actions are, due to the actions of some people

01:15:00 --> 01:15:21

You cannot collectively punish 2 million people in particular children because half of them are children. Half the population of Gaza are children. Every bomb that drops on Gaza kills hundreds of children. It decimates them, it makes them disabled. It has war trauma, there is trauma.

01:15:22 --> 01:16:14

Okay, so all these things are happening, despite the fact that how Muslims treated the Jewish people, and I already clarified that these people are not Jewish people. They are Zinus. This is a racist political movement. Israel is a racist state. It is a genocidal tyrannical oppressive state. And it is ruling this territory with oppression. And this is the reason I believe it will organically naturally collapse. I as a historian believe that any civilization, any dynasty, any government, any king, when they do oppression, when they do tyranny, they will collapse. The British Empire collapsed. The Roman Empire collapsed. The Italian Fascist Empire collapsed. German Nazism

01:16:14 --> 01:16:16

collapsed, okay.

01:16:18 --> 01:16:24

Soviet Russia collapsed. And all other racist, xenophobic, genocidal

01:16:25 --> 01:16:27

maniac powers will collapse.

01:16:28 --> 01:16:42

And those who ruled by mercy, peace and justice and compassion, they will rule forever. They will rule forever is no longer listening. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen, to be

01:16:48 --> 01:17:15

the last, to make us those sha Allah, that will rule by Justice, as our history has demonstrated. So we basically have 12 minutes Trisha, I'm going to take quick fire questions and answers from the public inshallah Shephard requests if you can keep them to two minutes the chances show up to your best ability. So inshallah Sisters Brothers, if you have a question, just raise your hand and raise your voice inshallah. Exactly.

01:17:18 --> 01:17:18

Yes, please.

01:17:21 --> 01:17:26

Fine, is it that all Western powers have the same group on unwavering

01:17:28 --> 01:17:33

belief? Why is it that all Western powers are so what

01:17:36 --> 01:17:43

are taking the stance they're taking in support of the State of Israel? Why? Because they are for some reason terrified.

01:17:45 --> 01:18:01

They have some pressure, some bullying that's taking place. That's why, okay, because I know for a fact, when the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, or when Joe Biden,

01:18:03 --> 01:18:10

and other, you know, Trudeau and all these people, when they sleep at night, they do think about it.

01:18:11 --> 01:18:54

No one can be that dead. In the conscience. They know, what they are saying is absolutely unjust. Okay, because Israel is committing a genocide right now as we speak, killing civilians, killing civilians, dropping bombs on buildings, where women and children are living, and they're using the excuse that these are actually not civilians. These are human shields used by Hamas. Okay. You want to fight Hamas? By all means go into it. Okay, you want to fight their soldiers? There are soldiers and soldiers fight each other in a war when there's a war soldiers fight each other. Okay. But when you drop bombs on buildings, blocks, where women and children are present, then our politicians, the

01:18:54 --> 01:18:59

ones I named, if they are not mentioning any of that, okay. So,

01:19:00 --> 01:19:23

obviously, there are some, there is some force behind them. Some they are scared of something. They're scared of consequences, right? That they cannot handle. Okay, we don't know what those consequences are or what those threats are, that they're facing. Because anyone, just anyone with even an iota of Mercy cannot speak like that.

01:19:24 --> 01:19:35

Either these people are completely morally dead, morally dead, or they have a lot of pressure. I don't know what which one is more than the other? Yes.

01:19:42 --> 01:19:42

How would you

01:19:47 --> 01:20:00

how can we Muslims restore justice? There's the question. We can restore justice by restoring the Quran in our hearts and minds and at our homes. Quran is what gave us justice in the first place. We are Muslims because of the Quran. We

01:20:00 --> 01:20:45

We achieved whatever we achieved throughout our history. The history of Muslim civilization is basically the Quran in manifestation, the moment we adopt the Quran, in its true sense of adoption of an idea, then we will become just once again and once we become just to ourselves, to our families, to our neighborhoods, to our people with each other, instead of pulling each other's legs because of sectarian reasons, and disowning each other and discarding each other, things will start to change Inshallah, we will get more organized our children will take us seriously, they will take our civilization more seriously, and then they will work for it Inshallah, to Allah. Okay, any

01:20:45 --> 01:21:23

questions from the sister side? Okay, and I, you know, I really want everyone to study the Zionist movement. Study, the Zionist movement is an academic topic. Okay, go and pick up academic books study the history of the Zionist movement. I truly admire them. I admire them the way they planned and the way the way they executed the plan, you know, as evil as their ambitions and their aspirations were, but they ended up achieving what they want you to achieve. You need to study how they achieved it. What did they do what was so special about them? How can a journalist called Theodore Hertzel,

01:21:24 --> 01:21:26

journalist, a journalist from Austria

01:21:28 --> 01:21:37

and Austro Hungarian Jew called Theodore Herzl, who was a Zionist and an atheist as well. How can he come

01:21:38 --> 01:21:49

to a Calif, Sultan Abdulhamid and tell him that we will pay all your debts you owe to the Europeans if you give us the land of Palestine.

01:21:51 --> 01:22:08

If you give us the land of Palestine, which which is in your possession, now, we will pay off your debts. How can that happen? And the Sultan refused? The question is how can they exert this movement? How can it exert so much influence is a very important question. Yes, please.

01:22:16 --> 01:22:53

They are directly relevant. In fact, there was an interview I was watching recently of James Rotschild is very elderly. I think he's in his 80s. Now he's probably in his 90s. If he was saying he was boasting about it that my ancestor made the State of Israel. He made the State of Israel, okay. He was dealing with the then foreign secretary of Britain called Arthur Belfer, Belfour. Okay. And he managed to somehow get that promise from him. Okay, so they're very directly relevant to the making of the State of Israel design is to state of Israel, not the Jewish state of Israel. That is very important. Yes, please.

01:22:58 --> 01:22:59


01:23:00 --> 01:23:42

to the constitution, very good question. How do we support our brothers and sisters in Palestine? Talk about it like I just did raise awareness know the history read books on it, don't just sit and think that you know, everything you don't know everything you don't know the details, go and read, pick up any basic book on design is the history of the Zionist movement and the history of Palestine in the last 200 years or maybe you can go back that read this book by Karen Armstrong, the history of Jerusalem, very good book, okay. She documents a lot of these things, okay. And there are many other books, you can read books, read books, academic books, published by academic institutions, you

01:23:42 --> 01:23:46

will get a lot of information that will help you Inshallah, yes.

01:23:47 --> 01:23:48

Go ahead very quickly, you.

01:23:58 --> 01:23:59

To what?

01:24:01 --> 01:24:02

What did I do just now?

01:24:04 --> 01:24:19

This is exactly what I was doing. Right. So our DNA is strong. Our DNA is strong, we are strong, we're not scared of anyone. So this is exactly what I was doing in front of you right for the last one hour. Yes. This is what we need to do in sha Allah. Yes. Yes, please.

01:24:25 --> 01:24:37

They are quiet Muslim leaders. Why are they quiet? This is the question. They are quiet because they're scared for the same reasons as Joe Biden. Trudeau and Rishi Sunak and all these. These Jokers

01:24:38 --> 01:24:41

are scared. Yeah, there's a question.

01:24:42 --> 01:24:59

It's a good book to learn. What is a good book to learn about Selaginella Yuvi. One of the best biographies are sold and Saladino up is if you want to read a contemporary biography by one of his teachers. So Don Saladino up had a teacher called Ba ba ba Dean.

01:25:00 --> 01:25:27

ignatia Dawn bow the Bucha dot wrote a book titled A nawada Rasul Tawnya and nawada Russell Tawnya. It has been translated into the English language as well. That's one of the best biographies. If you want to read a more extensive recent biography, then Ali Mohammed the Salovey, Dr. Ali Mohammed salah, He has authored the biography of Sultan Salahuddin in three volumes. Okay, so read that in sha Allah. Yes, very quickly.

01:25:29 --> 01:25:30

Does what?

01:25:33 --> 01:25:51

Does Palestine have a military? That's a good question. I'm still looking for the answer. Okay. I don't have any proper military. No, Palestine has no, there is not even a country yet. They are not allowing a country how can how can people have a military when they don't have a country? Yes, sisters, please.

01:25:52 --> 01:25:56

Okay, yeah, I'm gonna come to you have to use a system. Yes, please go ahead.

01:26:04 --> 01:26:53

The problem with that question is that some countries have already declared them to be a terrorist organization, I think in Canada, so So now it's a legal issue. It's a legal issue. So we cannot do two legal reasons indulge in this question. Okay. Right. But the point here is, it's not even about Hamas is about the people of Gaza. It's about the people. It's about the sanctity of the land of Palestine for the Muslims. Can we give it away? Okay, groups, okay. And people are not important here. Individuals are not important. What's important is the status of the land of Palestine, the status of el coche the status of magickal Aqsa, what is the importance of this place for us, this is

01:26:53 --> 01:27:39

the point we need to remember. And we need to do anything in our power. Okay, to get back much of OXA to free it once again, for the Jewish people, for the Muslim people and for the Christian people. Do you all agree? Is that an extreme position to take that we want to free Masjid Al Aqsa, not only for Muslims, but for the Jewish people and the Christians so that we can all worship together again? No problem? No problem. Okay, because they're already Jewish people were already always worshipping next to the Wailing Wall, okay, they will already worshipping there for centuries. Muslims never stopped them. Muslims never banned them. Right. But now the Muslims are

01:27:39 --> 01:27:46

being banned from worshipping and material OXA they are at the mercy of these atheistic soldiers who have no belief in Allah. They don't even believe in God.

01:27:47 --> 01:27:49

Right? Yes.

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


01:28:04 --> 01:28:05

the second question

01:28:07 --> 01:28:08

the question says

01:28:13 --> 01:28:18

Crusaders, right is a Crusaders. Yeah, can come together, why can't we? Okay.

01:28:20 --> 01:29:02

Why is conservative Christians are supporting Jews, from which, not not not conservative, not all conservative, conservative Christians are supporting the Zionist movement. Okay. Now, this is something you have to understand my brothers and sisters always make a distinction between the Jewish people and designers. Okay. Right. This is very important. So we conflate the two very often, okay, this is very important. You have to remember that Muslims, Muslims have protected the Jewish people for more than 1000 years Jewish scholars have written in the history is that the only reason we survive is because of Islam. The

01:29:03 --> 01:29:07

only reason we survive is because of Muslims.

01:29:09 --> 01:29:33

This narrative changed only after 1948 Only after the creation of the State of Israel. And people like Dean Phillip Bell, who's a historian, Dean Philip Bell, in one of his books, I forgot the name of the book, he writes that the golden age of Judaism under Islam was only challenged as an idea after the creation of the State of Israel.

01:29:35 --> 01:30:00

Okay, so absolutely, we can come together. Okay. But we can come together for the right reasons. We want justice for everyone. We don't condone the killing of any innocent people blue black, white, green, yellow, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu. We don't condone any killings of any innocent people. We condemn the killings of civilians, we can then condemn

01:30:00 --> 01:30:14

I'm just saying because this is what Islam says this is what Islam stands for. Okay, yes. Last Last question. That was last question. Okay. One minute. One more question. Yes, please. I'm gonna, I'm gonna answer your question, especially afterwards, yes.

01:30:19 --> 01:30:21

Is it bad to talk about the rulers?

01:30:24 --> 01:30:28

Is it? Is it wrong to blame the Muslim rulers for all of this?

01:30:29 --> 01:31:19

My question would be in response to that question. That rule has come from yourselves. Rulers are are a representation of your state of being, okay. Rulers will only take you seriously when you will be serious to yourself. Okay, so I wouldn't entirely blame the rulers for all of this, because I don't think any of the rulers put Palestine in a plate and gave it to the Zionist movement. Okay, Muslims never did it. However evil however corrupt. However, you know, weak or Muslim ruler, maybe he would not I mean, even in the most vulnerable of stages, Sultan Abdul Hamid flatly refused the offer of Theodore hurdle hurdle, even though he was weak, it was very weak at that point. Okay. So,

01:31:20 --> 01:31:22

sometimes, you know, we have to think

01:31:24 --> 01:32:07

we have to look at the bigger picture. The rulers are not always to blame, okay? Because they have they have greed, they have fear of losing power, okay. Because a lot of them, they cannot imagine losing the throne, losing the power. So in order for that greed and that, that fear of losing power, they will be reluctant to take action or they won't be able to even open their mouth, but then we have others like argon and you know, other people there they are speaking. Now, many people say argon is a politician. He's not sincere in what he says, Okay, who knows? We don't know the hearts of people. We don't know. But from his actions, we know that he has been supporting Islamic causes

01:32:07 --> 01:32:24

Muslim causes. Many other rulers have spoken. So why don't we focus on those who are speaking? Right, and those who are not speaking? What can we do about them? What can we do about them? Thank you so much. Dr. Mulligan are Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Al hamdu. lillahi. Rabbil aalameen. Transmission Phoenicia.
