Dear beloved brothers and sisters in Eman.
Each one of us
and the OMA in general may go through periods that we feel that we are weak
that we are Mustafa foon that we have no power or little power or at least some of us might feel that way.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala always reassures us that when we have this Eman and this Deen of Islam, we are never the powerless. We are never the weak party.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says well, he knew what I knew and Tamil alone in control many this verse that Allah subhanho wa Taala said don't
feel that you are
in Hawaiian, Hawaiian is the is being weak and helpless.
Well letter is a new and don't have sadness and sorrow. One tumor alone You are the higher once you are the higher party you are the more powerful one in control not mean if you only believe and these verses were revealed, right at 100 right at a time that the Sahaba felt that they were broken, that they were actually defeated militarily, and many of their beloved
brothers were killed on the battlefield Hamza Musab and others
they will broken inside. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah reveals these verses
is you are the higher ones. You are the more powerful party. Em says Come come home for cut myself God ha Coleman. My cell or her Muslim
if you were hurt if you are injured, then they also get hurt and they get injured. What will kill a Yamanaka willowherb in a nurse and here are the days in turns amongst people. Well, yeah, and um Hola. Hola, Xena. Why does that happen? Allah explains to us well yeah Allah Allahu Allah Xena Ave so Allah reveals our iman
and those who are true believers
to separate them from conditional believers, Amina Nassima yeah booty Allah Allah health for in Asaba Hi Ron, it's
the some people worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah conditionally. When something good happens,
they're good with it.
They are still believers. There was the OMA, there was Islam.
But when something like the other than that happens when
fitna comes when a trial comes when a tribulation comes
call about Allah. They fell down on the faces. Hassan dunya will
they lose dunya and akhira
Villa wala hula yo Waitaki I mean come shahada hola hola. Yo hippo volley mean? While uma is Hola Hola, Xena. And Allah wants to test and test hard. Those who believe? Well I am hackled carefree and Allah will always turn
into the non believers with the eye of displeased plus pleasure Allah is done in support
of those who do not believe in Him, even if apparently, they might have the upper hand at a certain time in history, or at a certain point.
But we have to read this Quran and interpret it and live with it the way Allah Subhana Allah Allah revealed it to the Sahaba to the companions to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions
the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and McMinnville, Kawi you higher on Wahab, Boyle, Allah, human and when you bite off equaling
the strong believer
is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak one.
And in both there is good.
So what is the power? Well, how this power what happens? How do we strengthen ourselves in times of adversity in times when it feels that everything is against us? And there's really no clear plan that we know of, but Allah knows best.
If we are in a situation like God,
if we are in a situation like 100, up, like the Battle of the Trench, when the situation of the Sahaba was so dire, that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah describe it that their hearts were there at the throats out of the fear. What are the new Nebula is the Luna?
And then he started having thoughts, the best of people.
So when we see our unmet situation, how do we build feel that we have? The power that we are the most powerful party that Islam is dealing with is
that Islam is the dean of dignity and honor and novelty.
When everyone is attacking us for what we believe,
when everyone is
for La ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, how do we get the power? How do we feel strong?
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah said Torah to us, and his magical passenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in many a hadith, what is the power of the moment and how to get there.
First is Iman, is to strengthen the foundation of faith. Because Allah subhana wa Tada says, we're into more income to more meaning, you are the most powerful, you are the party that have the strength. If there is an if it's a conditional sentence, Jim Latin short for a year in quantum meaning, if you were believers,
fewer true believers if you have the faith, foundation of faith,
Then the believer is strong. And the old man of strong believers is a strong ummah.
But when faith is weak,
the OMA is weak.
And each one in one of us individually, becomes weak.
had faith that is unshakable.
The Sahaba was born Allahu Allah him
to strengthen the foundation of Eman to go back into our true Aqeedah
Tito heed into believing in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah the way he is, ought to be believed in
and to have that
The second thing
is to believe always that we are on the right path. And right always the fifth wrong.
We may not be reading the final chapter
but let's not be fooled by current events and be blinded to the truth of this Iman and this religion
of the Sahaba Allahu Allah him looked at what happened in her heart. And they stopped at that time.
How would they believe what would they think?
who brought all that power and strength into Eman into Islam? When Masada mayor, the first ambassador in Islam, they were down there on the battlefield, killed
among 70, other of the great Sahaba.
And the last thing that Maasai Mara was narrated in the Sierra, the last thing he knew that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was killed. That was the rumor on the battlefield that day, what the driver may or must have now may have say, how did he feel?
It is directed that he said, Well, Mr. Mohammed on Ihlara suit for colored Maccabi urusan as a matter of
even the death of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on that day did not shake the faith of Miss Abner Ahmed who lost his life Shahida visibile Allah
because they believed
in their Iman, they believed in the truth and they believed that whatever happens
on Allah subhanho wa Taala will fulfill his promise.
Even when they lose the best leader, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Allah subhana strengthens those who believe in that
many of us this morning read surah TKF. And it is named after young people
fit here and feta.
Someone in their team or at the most at their early 20s
in our feet, yet on Amazon will be robbing him was it Nahum Hooda. They believed in Allah believed in their path. And they were strong enough
to challenge that entire community
and to leave their own whole community. So they would not lose their faith.
They would not lose their Eman.
And the third factor that will give us the third factor of Eman that will give us strength is believing in Africa.
We are people that believe in hereafter.
If we think that every justice will be done in this dunya
in front of our eyes
our life is too short for that.
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has his own timeline.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala give the most Surah give the support and the victory when he only knows when to give it and when the people that receive it are ready for
but we are people of Africa. We have to believe that this doesn't end here.
That no matter what happens in this dunya The Final Chapter is before Allah subhanho wa Taala
and we saw how the Sahaba dealt with that. I might have known him man. He was eating few dates that were in his hand.
And he heard and that battle
of better than the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying no one that get killed today. Unless he is
He through the dates he did not want to finish his little lunch.
He said back in Buckhead in Atlanta Willa, this life will be too long if I waited
till I finished those dates.
And he was one of the shahada of better
and the fourth factor of Eman
is believing in kadar. We know the articles of Eman are six and the sixth one is believing in order of Allah subhanho wa taala. So we don't look at something and become desperate and go into sadness and despair about why it happened and why is it happening to us? And why is it happening to us now?
Why me why us?
When we believe in the cadaver of Allah subhanho wa Taala
we believe in what he said, Allah you see burner in the market of Allah who Luna Who am I learn while Allah He fell yet what can kill me noon
nothing will happen to us, except what Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has ordained for us
he is our supporter, he is our molar. Allah Subhana Allah Allah is with us, no matter what.
Why Allah Allah He fell yet the word kellele Mommy noon, so have to work God have reliance on Allah subhanaw taala if we have faith, the believers will do that.
Nothing will happen except by the by the decree of Allah subhanahu wata Isla, we know of in the famous Hadith
when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
be known let it be known to you, that no good can reach you.
Even if everyone tried to benefit you, except with something that Allah has already decreed and ordained for you, and no harm can touch you.
Even if the whole world is against you,
except with something that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has already decreed and ordained
These are the elements of Eman if we believe in each one of them, then the heart is strong.
When the heart is strong, then that strength of the believer will appear in their in their words and in their actions.
So what actions do we take for strength?
Allah says we're letting us out FATF shallow waters Habari hookah
don't have quarrels and conflicts amongst your own selves FATF shell you you will fail you will be weakened What does Hibari hokum and your strength will be gone
by believing in a Holberton Eman
where a person will be heavily Lehi Jamie and Walter
when factions this unite
they're easily defeated.
dabba Rima who is Esther manitech, a surah Nakata Sarada herder
and then, the second act of strength is seven
is to have that endurance that patience because Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will always test us will always test our suburb and our iman.
We cannot stay in a comfort zone. That's not how Allah Subhana Allah treats the believers look at the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look at the life of his companion. It was nonstop nonstop trial after trial after trial.
It never ended
because Allah Subhana Allah to Allah wants us to show our email and our server
Our endurance our patients.
Your Alladhina amanu Spirou wasabi Rue rabito Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us very clearly oh you believe if you have that foundation of Eman that we just spoken about.
Then half sober
and then you will have rebirth rebirth is being standing there in strength
it's a one path
that leads to another
sometimes we might feel a
little helpless, when weak, low, powerless
and there is nothing wrong by turning to Allah subhana wa Taala to get that strength to renew our strength.
The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
hit the lowest point
in a day when he went to a PIF expelled from his house from his from Makkah he left to apply if he was not allowed to return back home.
That's before the Hijra.
That's before the emigration of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his companions
and the Sahaba were still little in number. And the Dawa, the calling to Allah Islam wasn't going anywhere.
Not many new people were coming in.
And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt
weakness, the human weakness,
not the weakness of email.
And then he turned to Allah subhana wa Taala and those words that the Sierra
give to us, and he said Allahumma ileka Ash, Kuba, karate. Welcome Letter. Hina to you how Ernie Elena's to you I complain to you I take refuge in You I take refuge
from the weakness of my strength
from inability to fulfill my mission
from the humiliation
that I suffer from people
and at that point, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was turning to Allah subhana wa to Allah. He didn't say oh Allah I complained to you about their stubbornness. I don't I complain to you about their arrogance. I complain to you about their wrongdoing. He didn't say that. He was rejecting all the blame. If there is to be any blame upon himself, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He was standing before Allah subhanho wa taala.
asking Allah to help him be better, to help him be stronger, to give him a way to deliver the Dawa his mission. He's a messenger of Allah. His His purpose is to give the message.
Then he said the honorable arobin untolerable mustafina and therapy. You are the Lord of the week. And you are my Lord 11 tequila in Europe. Elaborate and yet the hegemony Amelia Caribbean oculta who Amory Malacca who Emery Who do I turn to
the close people the family. They turn their backs on Me.
Abu Talib died at that time.
The rest of Benny Hashem other than those who went with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam turned their back on his on the messenger Quraysh his tribe turned his back on him.
I'm Elijah Aden, Malacca who am Rio to the other people like the people of authority if
but then he said lumea comica hoburne Allah Yeah, fella obody as long as you're pleased with me, you have no wrath or anger towards me. Then it doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter.
When we are tested by Allah subhanho wa taala. We have to show Allah from us what he wants to see
from the believers. Show the strength of Eman show our Eman in our hurrah show our Eman and nakodar in the destiny that Allah subhanaw taala put forward
show the unity of this Ummah
that we are one heart
and have the supper that Allah subhanho wa Taala
wants us to have
while hola wala Quwata illa Allah, there is no power, there is no mind except with Allah subhanho wa Taala if we turn to anything else to get the strength, Allah will never give us that strength
unless we turn to Him, the whole do matters my own what stuff for Allah Allah the muddy welcome, fair fulsome stuff very

of the Muslim community
is in the strength of each and every one of us. And the strength of our future is in the strength of our youth
of how we raise them, how we teach them, what we give them to go forward.
And it is allowed in a hookah and the second hepatic get to talk about some community issues. So I will just bring to you that this project that we are building at MICC
is build around the future of Islam is looking forward
to what Islam can be right here.
In Memphis, Tennessee and North America and the West.
No matter how weak we feel today.
No matter how powerless we feel.
We have to have the faith and the man
that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will raise his work.
And the believers always have the honor and the dignity of Islam and Eman. And we have to raise our children to be proud of who they are, and be proud of their religion. Be proud to be believers and people of faith of Islam,
unapologetically Muslims because Islam is the deen is the right religion of truth. And there is nothing to apologize for the actions of those who do not represent us who deviate from the path of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have nothing to apologize for it.
So that project that we're building is not just bricks and mortars, brothers and sisters.
It is the place where we believe
that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will put his light in it
msgid In Allah Subhana Allah to Allah or date for to happen in this land Bismillah in sha Allah
and for our future generations
to be proud of who they are
to have the future that we are trying to build for them.
This project brothers and sisters going forward, but it cannot go forward without all of our help. Each and every one of us united on the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala we want to build it from the heart
not just to have a building, but to have a building that is vibrant with Eman with teaching of Islam and with the future for our youth.
In sha Allah briefly after the Juma prayer, we will have a fundraiser because we need to go forward at this point and you can see how many people are praying outside and in the hallways. We need a place for this religion to continue to thrive is Nila. And it is our responsibility in it each and every one of us to make this happen. At this point in sha Allah everything is going forward nonstop.

is only about 18 months away.
And about 40 About 36,000 square feet will be ready for us to use.
But that cannot happen unless we give the money that is needed for that project.
To keep it forward and have the faith that when we give we are putting that in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the future of Islam,
in our community for the future of our children.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the tofield and to let us all be united and to strengthen our hearts and strengthen our actions and to give us support and Eman about Allah in Allah haohmaru Bill Adly Wallace anyway tell you why in hell handled fascia you won't even care you will belly Yeah, overcome that I look into the karoun I came in Salah.
