Uh, my bad

00:00:44--> 00:00:49

has been weeks and weeks and weeks, and it seems like it had been forever

00:00:51--> 00:00:55

since bombs have been raining upon the innocent,

00:00:57--> 00:00:59

and one could not have imagined

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

that we would have to spend

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

this many hotspots

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

just to

00:01:10--> 00:01:19

deal with the pain that is being caused by those who had lost or mercy from their hearts.

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

That you could see

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

all that agony that you are causing all that suffering.

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

But you're blinded

00:01:31--> 00:01:44

by rage, you're blinded by ethnocentrism, you're blinded by disbelief. Disbelief is a blindness

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

that you could commit such an act embolden

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

by the explicit and the tacit approval,

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

so many with power.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

That emboldened you to continue to slaughter the innocent,

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

without the need to apologize, or the need to stop or at need, at least the need to set a limit of some sort. At a basic moral level, what is your limit? What is your end,

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

and all this

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

had brought to light,

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

a need for us to have a paradigm shift,

00:02:30--> 00:02:37

a shift in what we suppose to be true or not, in how we think and how we live our lives.

00:02:39--> 00:02:47

Because to tell you the truth, if, whenever this ends, and Allah knows when, but may it be soon, I mean,

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

but if it ends,

00:02:52--> 00:02:59

in whatever, whatever way it ends, in whatever way it settles, if we go back after this,

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

to being the same people that we were before it,

00:03:06--> 00:03:16

then not only that, we haven't learned a thing from it. But this thing promises to repeat itself, because the condition that made it possible will continue to be possible

00:03:18--> 00:03:24

that this happened, because we were a particular thing in this life and not another.

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

We allowed it to happen, right?

00:03:29--> 00:03:58

Collectively, I know that individually we are helpless. Collectively we allowed it to happen. So we are collectively exactly the same after it as we were before it. The not only will you see another request that take place in Gaza, and in Palestine, in Bella to Sham, but in every Muslim country will awaits us, another of us where we will be looking and we will not be able to do a thing and people will be slaughtered.

00:04:01--> 00:04:43

So it's important for us to change but not only change lightly, but to change completely. And one of the things that we have to re understand is that our identity as Muslims supersedes every other connection or loyalty or allegiance that we have an any other national identity that you can't sit back and say what is happening to them concerns them. And that's not my concern, because I was born somewhere else and I speak a different language and I come from a different land. My citizenship is X but their citizenship is why I am not responsible for it. That idea

00:04:44--> 00:04:49

trips away at your Islamic allegiance. And Iman

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

because also Allah is Allah Who are they you are you are seldom said you will mean what had to come. I tell you a hit belly I think he may your hip bull enough sick. One of you will do

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

does not have Iman until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself. Meaning when you don't have that, then your iman is compromised, and you want to increase your iman, then you have to look for them exactly what you would love for yourself. Meaning that if they are assaulted in the love to be championed, you should look that through them as you love it for yourself. If you get attacked and you want somebody's aid, then you must aid them when they get attacked. If somebody kills your child, then you should be as sad for their child as your child sad for their child. If somebody takes your home, then you should be sad for their displacement as you would be sad for your own

00:05:43--> 00:06:22

displacement. But you shouldn't deal with it in terms that are very selfish and self centered. As long as it did not touch me, then I'm not responsible for it. All of us are responsible for every Muslim life and every inch of a Muslim land, because this is our responsible duty before Allah azza wa jal, Allah azza wa jal, he said in a hurry, he will not to come on metal Wahida were hon compatible Dune, he said subhanho wa taala. This religion of yours is one and I am your worship, so worship Me, which consequently leads you to believe that if you arrived is one

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

and if your religion is one,

00:06:27--> 00:07:10

then the Ummah also needs to be one, not divided based on color, not divided based on race or where you have bought when you were born, not divided based on anything else, but united behind that either in Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah and feeling that that is your top priority. This is how you live, this is how you identify and this is how you die, not as an hour versus not our non Arab, not as an Egyptian versus a an Indian or Pakistani, you know, as someone who says that ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, because it was an accident that you were born in, in a particular geography, it doesn't define you.

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

It shouldn't define you.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

You should be bigger and better than that.

00:07:19--> 00:07:23

At the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was seldom

00:07:24--> 00:07:32

there was an incident, a minor incident between Aloha June well and saw the immigrants and viansa

00:07:33--> 00:08:11

then Aloha Jun said Yellin mohajir in the unsolved severely ill unsolved so that's one of the immigrants said all the immigrants come and help me the unsolicited or the answer come and help me. So they wanted to what group against each other divide each other based on names that in themselves are loved by Allah zoodle These designation Mahajan when Ansari is a beautiful designation, but when the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam comes and sees what they are doing. He says down with her into her Montina leave this because it's rotten.

00:08:13--> 00:08:28

When you divide based on this designation, he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says it is rotten. And he was able Allahu Allahu Allah will send them to Rican sell them and they forgot about necesita to shape on the whispers of che tra.

00:08:29--> 00:08:56

So when we deal with other Muslims, we deal based on Islam, it doesn't matter to me what I'm Muslim government is doing and it's not doing it does not speak on the behalf of the population. It doesn't matter to me on social media. If there is an ignorant person claiming to attack other Muslims on behalf of his country, he does not represent that country. Don't be fooled by these tactics. Don't be fooled by these divisions.

00:08:57--> 00:09:17

If the people of fellas Palace a Philistine, hypothetically, had compromised their duty towards Philistine it becomes your duty, doesn't matter what they've done or did not do. It is your responsibility as a Muslim, because we understand in Islam that if a Muslim or Muslims are attacked in a locality,

00:09:18--> 00:09:40

and they cannot defend themselves, it becomes an obligation on the adjacent locality to assist them. And if they cannot help them defend themselves, then the adjacent locality and so on and so on, in an ever expanding circle until that evil is repelled. There is no separation based on these borders that you see today. They don't matter.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

A chef curry Rahim Allah Allah He was born in Gaza.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

He goes to Mecca, he learns in Medina, goes low in Iraq, then settles in Egypt and he dies there. He sees no difference between these areas. They are all the same to him.

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

And they should all be the same to you should don't divide based on Jamelia

00:10:05--> 00:10:22

and understand that Allah azza wa jal when he says Rasim will be heavily Lehi to me I will let the for Rocco hold on to the rope of Allah off together and do not divide, you should understand that as much as you are a good Muslim, you will avoid division.

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

And you should have that as a primary objective.

00:10:29--> 00:10:45

As a Muslim, I will not divide nor inflame tensions between Muslim based on emotions based on ignorance based on hearsay and gossip. But rather my primary duty is to unite all Muslims,

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

against the enemies of Allah zoodle as they all unite against you.

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

If you think this is not my concern,

00:10:57--> 00:11:03

look at some of the rallies look at some of the rhetoric that is attacking

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

the people of Gaza.

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

How it devolves easily from against them,

00:11:11--> 00:11:22

to against Arabs, to against Muslims to against Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam to against the Quran? Because you think you're not involved? You're not part of this.

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

Then why did they all unite against them?

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

If the issue was simply a piece of land?

00:11:32--> 00:11:46

Why is it so important? Why would they outlaw demonstrations? punish those who speak against it? Why does it matter so much? If the issue was simply a piece of land is very small piece of land?

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

The issue is not that piece of land.

00:11:51--> 00:12:08

The issue is what it leads to what it represents, who is being targeted. So you think simply it's Palestinians or people of Gaza, you're mistaken. You haven't seen the whole picture. If you think it's just an Arab matter, you don't really understand it yet.

00:12:09--> 00:12:15

If you understand that it's against Islam, then it will matter to you

00:12:17--> 00:12:20

then you will understand that this is your issue as well.

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

You're gonna tell me Rahim, Allah He said.

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

He said, It began in Makkah,

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

and it ends in Jerusalem.

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

He says both creation and Islam.

00:12:40--> 00:12:44

He said that Allah He said creation according to some narrations.

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

He said creation of Earth became from Mecca.

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

And the gathering of people

00:12:53--> 00:12:56

for the Day of Judgment will be in a sham.

00:12:57--> 00:13:14

And he said Dawa, started in Makkah. That's where La ilaha illallah came there in a sham and in Jerusalem. So if you are a believer, and this is happening today, your place would be over there, not anywhere else.

00:13:17--> 00:13:32

According to some narrations, when the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was asked, Where are the herbs then? Meaning the Muslims. He says there are few What do you know whom did it like this? He says there are few and most of them are in Jerusalem.

00:13:34--> 00:14:21

So this is if you have Iman, if I have Iman, if we have Taqwa that is your land, doesn't matter where you were born. And your responsibility and your Amana doesn't matter what language you speak, or where do you come from? So demolish these ideas of borders that they were created for you will not by you, for you, barriers that Allah azza wa jal does not consider does not look at. And don't let the ignorant turn you against your brothers and your sisters. If they don't want to support they don't have to, if they are against so and so they can be that we don't have time to take us away from our main objective and the main objective is to champion those who are being bombed every

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

single day and night. That's the main objective at this moment to make dua for them.

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

And we can do this if we are divided.

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

So no one understand that there are plots against us. Whenever something like this happen, divide them so we can conquer them. Leave these divisions away and adhere to what Allah has to deliver unto the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam sunnah and increase your email and because with the more Eman that you have, the greater clarity you will have in seeing right from wrong and in supporting your brothers and and having the strength to able to

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

Continue that support,

00:15:03--> 00:15:10

we can say that we are experiencing fatigue, we're tired, we don't have time for them.

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

If we don't have patience

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

to simply assist and to make do, how can we ever demand from them to have patience to protect that land?

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

When they don't have water, they don't have food, they don't have medicine, they don't have hospitals.

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

When they will have none of that, and we ask them be patient.

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

And we can be patient.

00:15:38--> 00:15:49

And we can sacrifice and we got tired already. How do we talking about well, the army of Salahuddin or similar will come and will, will change all of that.

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

Imagine an army without patience,

00:15:54--> 00:16:02

without the willingness to sacrifice without the willingness to lose their lives or their limbs or at least what makes them comfortable.

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

How can things change?

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

Beyond just wishes.

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

If such an army does not have patience,

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

and such an army or such a change is not going to come out of nowhere, it's going to come from within.

00:16:19--> 00:16:25

So this is why we need to change how we think and how we relate.

00:16:26--> 00:16:44

Don't ever say I'm Egyptian, I'm mocking I am Indian. I am this and that becomes how you think of yourself. You really then have minimized the gifts of Allah azza wa jal and wronged yourself.

00:16:45--> 00:16:49

By being less than a servant of Allah azza wa jal as

00:16:50--> 00:16:54

a whole of Holy hell there was the federal law do you want to convince the few?

00:17:12--> 00:17:21

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Hamdan cathedra on three even Obiora confy he will also leave also Nemo and Rasool E. Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam,

00:17:22--> 00:17:30

being a servant of Allah azza wa jal, and a follower of Muhammad Ali, his Salatu was Salam should give you dignity on this earth. And that dignity means that

00:17:32--> 00:17:37

what you believe is superior to everything else. And we don't say this out of blind, right?

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

We say this, because that's what we see.

00:17:44--> 00:17:45

That's what we witness,

00:17:47--> 00:17:55

whichever, or whatever, believe there is beside this has failed

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

to protect has failed

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

to guide

00:18:02--> 00:18:09

because they've been given the chance. And they told us and they lied to us about all of their ideals. And we see

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

that they lied, and they continue to lie.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

When we're talking about very cutting,

00:18:19--> 00:18:24

what serves to aid that aggression, products,

00:18:26--> 00:18:29

drinks, fast food chains.

00:18:31--> 00:18:36

What is even more important than that, and that in itself is important.

00:18:37--> 00:18:48

But what is even more important than that is to boycott the ideas that produced all of this, not just simply the product, but the ideas themselves

00:18:49--> 00:18:58

to boycott what spreads those ideas. So am I gonna continue to consume Hollywood after this?

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

Well, I continue to see their series, and their movies and their narratives, and what they consider to be important and what they want to feed to us and all these ideals that they hide in. And they corrupt with our minds in the minds of our children. Will I continue to be a consumer of all of this? Or is it time for me to very cut all of that, as I'm boycotting the physical products.

00:19:31--> 00:19:37

And I'm not only singling out Hollywood, Bollywood is also a culprit.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

It's not only about West,

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

but if you're still watching Bollywood and all of their songs and dancing and enjoying that, then you have living a trivial life and unimportant life after all of this we're still gonna subscribe to the message of another nation that

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

demeans when we believes.

00:20:04--> 00:20:13

We have to have dignity on earth because if you don't have dignity, no one is going to give it to us. So what is the dignity then?

00:20:14--> 00:20:30

The dignity is in believing that every word that Allah spoke is the truth. And his promises true. The dignity then the Sunnah of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is superior to anything else that people say and be contradicted. They are wrong,

00:20:31--> 00:20:47

to have confidence in all of this to believe that our success is not imitating West or East. But in imitating Muhammad Ali, he is Salatu was Salam, meaning Do you believe this or not? If we believe this, why have we not followed it?

00:20:48--> 00:20:57

He can't wait until you are bummed to wake up. It can happen, you have to protect yourself, because it's creeping towards us.

00:20:59--> 00:21:03

Before it happens to you or to your child or to your grandchild.

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

And it's not easily reversed. Let's reverse what is run within us.

00:21:12--> 00:21:44

So we're not easy targets. We're not easily manipulated. You cannot be a secular Muslim, how could you live a life where you have distanced yourself from Allah and His Prophet? How could you be a secular Muslim, where Islam doesn't matter to you and how you behave, how you married, how you divide your wealth, how you earn it? How could you be that? How can religion not have an influence on politics, and you see it on one hand, influencing what they're doing, but It's haram for you to believe that

00:21:45--> 00:21:50

you become a criminal if you believe it, but it's okay for them to do it.

00:21:54--> 00:21:58

You have to understand that Allah zodion had given us the keys to success,

00:21:59--> 00:22:04

and that he subhanho wa Taala will champion us if we champion him.

00:22:05--> 00:22:14

And that he subhanho wa Taala is not only testing the people of because the moment and it's the greatest.

00:22:16--> 00:22:26

It's the greatest. But he's testing us as well, because we're the first time in a very long time. We could see all of it.

00:22:27--> 00:22:36

Most of it, we could see their tears, we can hear their screams, we can see what is happening to their children, every single day.

00:22:38--> 00:23:03

Other conflicts they were hidden from us, but this as a test. If you follow it, you could see every single day children screaming and being killed every day. Then the next day, other screams and other children are being killed and the next day and the next day and the next day. And mother after mother is crying after her child and the next day and the next day and the next day and it keeps repeating.

00:23:05--> 00:23:10

You understand that this needs to stop and they are not going to stop it or us.

00:23:13--> 00:23:18

And we're not going to stop it if we are slaves in our heads to other people.

00:23:20--> 00:23:44

Take your directions from Allah Azzawajal from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and think of your ummah as a single one body. It doesn't matter these divisions don't matter. When you're going to stand before Allah Azura till on the Day of Judgment, you're not going to be divided according to race and ethnicity and past. You will be divided according to your taqwa and what you did.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

And Allah had given you now it's time to do something.

00:23:49--> 00:23:52

So our lives have to change

00:23:53--> 00:23:54

if we are slaves of the dunya

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

Let's stop.

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

And let's think about the FL

00:24:02--> 00:24:21

if we are slaves to our desires, our sins let's say the see that these are as dangerous as the missiles that train on us our sins. Because that's what gives the enemy and access and power stop and ask Allah for forgiveness. If you're finding it hard to cope with all of this,

00:24:23--> 00:24:40

because we don't have the power to do anything, hold on the book of Allah azza wa jal and open it and start reading not a page or not two not 10 pages or 20 but keep reading and keep reading and the raise your hands after you finish and make a lengthy do

00:24:42--> 00:24:56

and then maybe you will feel empowered after that to do something rather than feel defeated. believe that there is Allah that you can do. And Allah azza wa jal will guide you to do it

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

in terms of the hour

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

In terms of helping people around you interpret in terms of collecting money for them

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

in terms of strengthening the Muslim body so it's not as weak as it is today.

00:25:14--> 00:25:17

So we need strength, we need strong men and women.

00:25:18--> 00:25:22

And Allahu Allah, Hmong us today, who among us will be that strong?

00:25:24--> 00:26:16

Maybe not all of us, maybe not most of us, maybe not half of us. But maybe some of us will hear this and similar calls. And they'll say to themselves, it's upon me to change everything around I will be the one who will initiate that change. So I'm now on this and that haram stop these channels and these movies and these songs they stop would be alive with gaming and going out with friends and wasting time that's going to stop can have Halal fun, but I'm saying that with that is your main concern that stops and now I'm going to be thinking about what to do. So that when I meet Allah as so today, I will say you've given me a life and I used it, and I use it for this and this and this,

00:26:16--> 00:26:58

and I help them and they spread Islam. And he followed Muhammad Ali his Salatu was Salam. And I did my best and he did not waste it. That is what we want to say to Allah azza wa jal.
