It is from the Sunnah of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that whenever ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala would bless him with a bounty with a blessing that he would make sure that everybody around him actually knows that Allah has given him this bounty in following the sunnah of our interview Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We also look at the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout time and history since humanity began till today, Allah subhanaw taala has a sunnah away a maxim through which he operates in this world. And one of those ways is that Allah chooses and selects whoever he wishes and raises their ranks.
And this could be from time place and people. Allah subhanaw taala chose the MBI 124,000 of them and from them Allah subhanaw taala chose 313 to be what also messengers and from those 313 Allah subhanaw taala chose five to be analyzed mineral soil and from those five oil asmita rasool Allah subhanaw taala chose our NABI Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be the leader of all.
Similarly, from lands Allah subhanho wa Taala created this entire earth and then he chose from these lands.
Haram, the boundary of haram around Maccha he chose that to be sacred
and elevated and status then the medina because our NABI Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam moved over there and he honored in the honor of Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he created that a second home for us.
Likewise, Allah subhanaw taala choose time. So between all of the months of the year Allah subhanaw taala has given preference and precedence to Ramadan. Likewise, throughout the weekdays that we have the weeks the days of the week that we have Allah subhanaw taala has given Friday, a preference and precedence. Similarly, Allah subhanaw taala has given preference to a third place on this earth
and that is the topic of our hotbar today
in following the Sunnah of Allah subhanaw taala and following the Sunnah of Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam, to explain to each another the value of this third place,
Allah subhanaw taala
from amongst all the nations, human beings, we are tribes kabbah and ethnicities. Allah chose Prophet on the lesson of Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi salam, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to ethnicities, or above everybody else because of certain characteristics and fogal that Allah has placed in them.
From amongst them is Al Yemen, the people of Yemen, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Al Hikmah to Allah many wisdom will be found in the people of Jana Yemen, this is the selection of Allah subhanaw taala that does not mean that somebody from other lands can't have wisdom. But the overarching number of people that will be wise from Yemen is going to be above everything else. Similarly, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could not ever stop talking enough about the people of Sham the people of the Levant area, the area of Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, follow Slean and all of that. So these individuals Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said something so powerful, he
said la Hira, fie come, there is no higher in us. Either first as a foster that it is faster that Allah sham if the people of Sham get corrupted, their images get corrupted, there is no higher in this entire room.
That is the reason why when the job is going to come out, the people of Sham are going to be the first one that are going to go and fight him. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a summary of that hadith had mentioned too long Hadith but summarizing it, it says that these people would have just finished a battle. You know, I lived in a zoo for whom they would have just hung their swords, which tells us that the battles are going to be swords, you know that we'll be fighting with swords not guns at that time. They would have hung up their swords and they will be resting under the tree if he got to the home so he when a person is going to come screaming to them
He is going to say hello Raja to the journal, the journal has come out and those people are going to grab their swords and they will be the first ones that are going to go there and defend.
Similarly, from the lands in the sham, Allah subhanaw taala has given preference and precedents to beta Democritus. Fellow Steen Omar Abdullah, come up at Democritus. We do not know the value of beta Democritus. If you ask an average, average teenager growing up here, ask a young guy and ask anyone who's been graduated from these most prestigious universities tell them Can you describe to me Give me five or six benefits or father of vital MCQ this ask the people of philosophy in themselves. Many of them don't even know.
And it is not a coincidence. There's a hotbed that I gave them the same number which was the five things that the colonizers did to us. From amongst those five things. One of the most important thing was credit they created curriculums so that we are all ignorant of these facts.
It's not a mere coincidence that we don't know what is the value of Philistine. It's actually a systematic design by the colonizers. Today that you have an entire Muslim Ummah they have access to all of these things, and they do not know these things.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala free philosophy in from the hands of the Jews. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given so much value to Philistine and today's fatwa is not to talk about politics, but to inspire our hearts for the value of this place. That is the main purpose today.
Allah subhanaw taala from the time Ibraheem Alehissalaam he was just a hub as they were sitting with Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they asked Prophet sallallahu sallam, what was the first message that was made?
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the first house of Allah that was made is maca. And then the Sahaba that asked, and what what was the next one? What was the second house that was built? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Baitul buck this while buying a home or burying Santa
40 years after the establishing of haram Masjidul haram Baitul muck this was made by Mr. de la casa was made Masjid Al Aqsa by its name we must understand why is it called Masjid Al Aqsa in the first place. So, it is in reference to Masjid Al haram. So you had Masjid Al haram and from Masjid Al haram Masjid Al Adina is much to the neighbor we the closest neighbor so from Masjid Al haram, the closest haram from Masjid Al Haram is Masjid Nabawi which means Masjid Al Adena the closest haram boundary to Masjid Al haram. And Masjid Al Aqsa, it's the furthest boundary from Masjidul haram at dinner is something close outside is the furthest. So when we say Masjid Al Aqsa, the furthest Haram
are the first furthest sacred land from Masjid Al haram. That is why it was named Masjid Al Aqsa Masjid Al Aqsa is a responsibility of every single Nabhi that has ever come. Zachary Eileen has said I'm he was afraid and he asks Allah subhanho wa Taala that I am afraid of those that are going to come after me.
And they're not going to be good inheritors. What was the job of Zachary Yachty his salaam to take care of by telemarketers Monsieur de la cosa. Then you have the mother of Maria Maria who Salam
right What did she say? She said that whatever is in my button, I have fried I have a dedicated that thing that is in my belly for the service of mush to the UK PSA. And when she gave birth in new Allah to her answer your Allah How was a woman going to serve my student o'clock?
The angel replied, Allah knows very well what you gave birth to. Then she was given in to she saw her uncle, her paternal uncle took care of Maria Mali, he said on waka fella has a Korea Zachary Ali Salam took her into the care and she stayed in battle ham bait lamb, she stayed in there and served Allah subhanaw taala by worshipping from there onwards, every single Nabhi that came after Ibrahim Ali has set I'm visited by telemarketers and Masjid Al haram.
These were places that were so sacred, you had prophets of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions In another Hadith in an authentic narration. He says that
that in Masjid Al Aqsa, wama hola hoo. And whatever surrounds it. There is not a hand spans with there's not a hand span you put your hand there Illa cada Ma Li Hilda B O Malak. There is an angel that has stepped foot on one side and you will find that to be on the other side.
That place is blessed and mobile rock. Most of the MBR that came from Ibrahim Ali salaam their graves are founder Ibrahim Ali Salam use of Ali salaam his grave was transferred from Egypt to Betamax this to Masjid the left saw. So today we're going to look at Masjid Al Aqsa and some of the values of Masjid Al Aqsa from the Hadith as well as the Quran. First Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, I love Ybarra, Kina. Hello. It's Scott so much Baraka that it's Baraka oozes out
to other places,
that it's Mobarak but it's Baraka is so powerful, that whatever is surrounding it, that also gets about a car because of it. Subhan Allah, Allah says Allah Allah in mana rehosting First Integrity be able to heal out of the lengthy Baraka fee Ha, there is baraka in beta Democritus. The Hill mighty Linuxes then next part Allah subhanaw taala says why y'all call me call Arden Mocha, does Attila T Khattab Hola Hola, como. It's a sacred land by Telemark, this is a sacred land. And then Allah subhanaw taala says In another Hadith this hadith is so powerful. Allah says that a Salafi Masjid the Prophet sallallahu sallam was asked, What about Masjid Al Aqsa? What is the benefit of Salat and
Masjid Al Aqsa in a hadith mentions 250 Salawat. In another Hadith it mentions 500 Salawat, ie one prayer is equal to 500 prayers, and another Hadith mentions 1000 The olema they put together all of these variances and they said it is Tarraco me which means the first time that you enter you will get 250 The next prayer that you're going to pray is 500 and from there onwards every prayer that you pray will be 1000.
Then in the in the ayah Allah subhanaw taala says, Why would I Snell Coleman levena Can when you start the iPhone or the Omaha Rebbe, let Eva rakhna fie her
entire verses of the Quran that talk about the baraka off this blessed land that has close to 27 verses in the Quran that you can look up for them. Next part, mirage of Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, you and I are all gathered today to pray.
This is a mirage of min This is the ascension of every single one of us so we can feel the spirituality that Niraj there's a lot of symbolism in this story. Allah subhanaw taala could have taken Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Masjidul haram he was in a more secret place than most of the luxol
but Rasul Allah was taken from Masjid Al haram, and he was brought to Mr. Arkansas. And over there first thing that happens is a gathering of MBR the greatest conference that has ever taken place, all of the MBR are gathered Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam leads them in prayer. And then the owner asked me when a rustle the five loftiest messengers of Allah subhanaw taala no highlight you sit on me but are him either you said. Musa you said I'm Sid said, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they all gather and yes to Abraham Ibrahim it said on begins the chutzpah, the new Halley, you said and gives the hotbar and then so on and so forth until Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam gives his kebab to them. So Maya to Budokon then Gibreel Ali he said on comes and brings this animal Buraq it is between a mule and a donkey. It has two wings and it looks like a horse Buraq first time when Rasul Allah touches him, he runs away from Rasulullah and he shows this this agitation Gibreel Ali, he said I'm he says Yabu rock, my utter dream and Harada Don't you know who this is? And who Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
so Buraq recognizes rasool Allah by the name
and he tumbles itself in front of Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam, and then Gibreel tells Brock, there will be never a person better than this individual ever riding upon you. So take care.
Rasool Allah mentions that Buraq is an animal of Jannah its speed is faster than the speed of
Light, the first thing where it sees if you look out the window for example, the last thing that you see at the horizon, that would be one step of Buraq.
So, from there Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes and he comes to the area which is called the dome of rock today that golden you know, Mira that we all see in the images you know, that is not actually Mr. de la casa. That is dorma frock. So the dome of rock is where the ascension took place. Barack comes over there and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is ascended all the way to the seven heavens, from Mr. de la casa, your Salah, and my salah is connected to much to the lochsa because the journey of getting the command of the Salah begin from muster de la casa.
Then Allah is Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned and Abdullah bin Omar, Abdullah the Allahu Allah, Tala Rasul Allah He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam unnecessarily man even that would Allama Farah from in Boone Yanni Masjid Solomon it he sat down when he finished building Masjidul saw beta after this. So Allah Allah, he asked Allah subhanaw taala for three to us. First one Hoekman Musa, you saw the full hochma Who that when Solomon ie Salam makes a judgment, that judgment coincides with the judgment of Allah.
Well, mortal can lie Jambo Helia had embody and a kingdom that I have been given and nobody after me shall be given that kingdom. Hour Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he was praying
and he saw Jana, in front of him.
He saw Jana in front of him and during the Salah, this hadith is an authentic narration during the salah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wanted to extend his hand.
He wanted to extend his hand and get the grapes that he was seeing in the vision from Jana. But then he backtracked. So the Sahaba saw this movement of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked him
and he said, that I saw a Jana
and if I had taken the grape from it, I had taken that grape from it, then I would have become the best king that has ever lived in this earth.
But I remember the dua of my brother Solomon allihies Salam that he asked Allah that gave me a kingdom that no other person had. So I wanted him to have an upper hand over me in that and I left it
then the third thing that Soleimani Ali he said um he asked, wala T ha Masjid don't that not a person comes to this Masjid la ut do he does not want anything Illa Surah The only reason you go to Masjid Al Assad is you want to pray to Allah cause over there are you want to pray Salam Illa salata, FIFA Illa except what is going to be given to that person Hello Raja Min huddly at the yarmulke will lead that to
that a person will leave from that place after praying Torah cause all your sins are forgiven.
And the list can go on.
But this is a small glimpse of what Allah has given us. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, now you can live Allah Who enough son in law was Aha. But another ayah Allah subhanaw taala Says law you can live Allah Who enough son in law Amma
that Allah does not burden you except with the resources that he has given you are your responsibility and my responsibility and my questioning is going to be based on the abilities and the resources that Allah has given us.
And from one of the resources that we have, is that when you have certain appointments that are made within our own country, people that are on hold positions, right, that have detrimental effects, we're our brothers and sisters in Philistine that we raise voice about that every individual person you have, you know, NCCM they're doing a great job in raising voices against Islamophobia. If you and I don't raise our voices and stop this, and the problem with Islamophobia is that we don't realize it until we face it.
There's a case that I'm dealing with within the community over here, and Islamophobia is rampant in our hospitals.
A girl can walk in or a teenager can walk in and absolutely have mental health issues. And then eventually a 13 year old or 14 year old can decide to leave and live on the street.
Eat, and they will have no issues with that person. But if they're a Muslim, they make such difficult policies and procedures and make you run through hoops and loops. And you can smell Islamophobia from them, because they've already made a judgement by looking at you. But if you and I do not raise voices for our brothers and sisters and Philistine, because Allah has given you that resource to send an email to your local MP and say we do not like the appointment of the new foreign minister, because of the statements he has made about Philistine that is our job. Because Allah is going to question each and every one of us have that. The other parts about Feldstein as Canadians,
you have the option to go and visit Philistine.
You have an option, you can go and get a visa and apply and visit.
If other Muslims and other parts of the world can go at least we should fulfill that right to be there. Let everybody know that this is our place. It belongs to us.
It belonged to us before even it belong to anybody else.
As Rasulullah said when he heard about Musa Ali salaam was fast, right? They used to fast, he said and how long are they fast on the 10th of Muharram for Musa Ali Salam rasool Allah Azza wa COVID Musa they don't have any right for Musa and we have more right over Musa
similarly we have more right over Philistine but then Allah will question us that you came to these lands from your lands and you got the Canadian nationality. You had the ability to go and visit Masjid Al Aqsa, did you do it?
We planned for all the cruises and vacations and everything. But that's not even it doesn't even come to our minds.
And so what if there is some security risk?
Your life has security risks at this very moment, you do not know you're going to step out and whether you're going to live or not.
But in the least, if you got to pray to the cause over there, and you'll come out of it, Allah will forgive all of your sins.
And which one of us over here does not want their sins to be forgiven?
I for sure will be the first one we have so many sins in the court of Allah that we can't even stand in front of him. May Allah grant us a Dolphy to practice a protocol Yeah, there was talk for Allah howdy welcome, what exactly it must mean first of all over in the Horn of Africa.
And then we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he liberate Masjid Al Aqsa, and he gives the freedom back to the people of Philistine. We ask that we become from those who actually raise voices for our brothers and sisters. And we become from those who Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I will not me no calm in California and most of the believers with other believers are like one just at one body. If one part aches to other aches, so we ask Allah that He gives us the true connections with our brothers and sisters in Islam. And we see and feel the pain of our brothers and sisters in any part of the world. And we make us from those people who meet in the middle of the night, raise our
hands and ask Allah for help when we feel that we have no help, and we become from those who never despair and give up hope, no matter how dark it becomes for us as Muslims to live in this land, because Allah is by our side. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to give us this courage and to be brave enough to raise the voices for our brothers and sisters within this land, and to stop any injustice, any racism, any tyranny that takes place in these lands. So we can become the torchbearers of justice. And people can see the true justice in the hands of Muslim. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada that we become from those who truly become from those who Allah inspires us to go
and at least visit Betamax and Masjid Al Aqsa before we leave this earth and we become from those whom Allah calls us to these blessed lands, because many of us have resources, but they have never stepped foot in Makkah. And many of us who don't have resources, Allah has called them to Makkah, this is the tofi of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah decides to call us and we ask Allah that He calls us to these Blasted Lands have only had our stock for Allah.
