my brothers and sisters in Islam and around the world.
I'm looking at this over inspiring gathering
in which Muslims from all around Australia,
from all parts of Victoria, have come here together on one unity, their hearts together, full of Amen, full of compassion, full of mercy and pain at the same time for our brothers and sisters in Gaza in Palestine, whom Allah subhanho wa Taala some of them he has taken back. Others we assume they are martyrs, and our hearts are with them and our dua is with them night and day, just like one body as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if one part of it is in pain, the rest of the body is in pain. We are one body one Ummah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called us an ummah, from the meaning of mother. Just like the mother encompasses her children, we are together, encompassing
one another with care compassion, like one body. My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanahu wa Allah says, cooperate with one another in goodness and righteousness, and do not cooperate in sin and transgression. And be mindful of Allah. Surely Allah is Severe in punishment. Allah also said in earlier Imran verse 110, you are now the best people brought forth for the guidance and reform of mankind. You enjoying what is right and forbid what is wrong, and you believe in Allah. And we're Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah said, Hold fast together, hold fast together to the rope of Allah and be not divided. Remember the blessing that Allah bestowed upon you, your once enemies, then he
brought your hearts together, so that through his blessing you became brothers. My brothers and sisters, Allah finally says in chapter eight, verse 46, and obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not quarrel with one another, or you will be discouraged and weakened. Be steadfast, surely Allah is with those who remained steadfast. The meaning of this verse, the scholar said, the believers were asked to exercise self restraint. They were required to refrain from hasty panic, consternation creed, an uncalled for enthusiasm. They were counseled to proceed call handedly, and to wake well, and to take well considered decisions. They were also asked not to relent an inch, even in the face
of grave dangers, refrain from acting rashly under provocation to desist from taking hasty action out of impatience. They were also asked to exercise control over themselves less they were tempted by worldly gains. This is the meaning of Allah extend all help and support to those who exercise patience suburb in this sense, having said the brothers and sisters, Al Aqsa which means the farthest mosque and goods which means the holy mosque, the holy place, Jerusalem and Palestine, Allah has blessed around it is very dear to the hearts of every Muslim on the face of the earth. Every Prophet and every messenger went through there, every prophet and every messenger from the
beginning of Adam till Muhammad Sallallahu was sending them prayed in OXA and the final of them Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has more
It was believed, as it is in the Quran. He prayed Imam there in Masjid Al Aqsa with all the prophets behind him in his throat When Maharaja, so it is dear. It is religious, it is deep in our religion, and also to the religion of the Jews, Christians as well, because of the prophets and messengers that went through it. But these prophets and messengers, brothers and sisters, none of them came to call to oppression and injustice, every prophet and every messenger that walked the earth, called his people, and the entire nation to be just, and to avoid oppression and injustice to anybody, regardless of the victims ethnicity, religion, culture, gender, color or race. And this is what
Allah subhanho wa Taala sent in the final testament, the Quran where he said, Allah subhana wa Taala has forbidden upon himself oppression and made it forbidden upon anybody. Wherever there is injustice, wherever there is oppression, no matter where it is, brothers and sisters, we all know that that cannot last any nation, any country, any people who build their system of oppression and injustice cannot last. And Allah subhanaw taala has built this entire universe. Look at the animal kingdom. Look at the trees, look at the universe, look at the celestial planets, everybody even in innate inside of us. Whenever we see oppression, the heart resents it automatically. This is the
instinct of every human being which Allah created. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Make me the pleasure of all your actions. And through that Allah only commands Justice and Equality he commands goodness unto others and to connect your family ties in its place. Allah subhanho wa Taala forbids oppression and injustice, immoral behavior, and sinful behavior towards one another. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam.
You open your phone screens,
and for the past 18 days, every five minutes, we see a baby dead. Another child mutilated a mother crying over her children. A child crying over his mother. Children massacred in the dozens, bodies everywhere scattered, wrapped in white cloth that Jenna has a prayer being done on them all at one time. 5100 at a time,
houses and buildings disintegrated to the ground. Children running, not knowing what is happening to this world. Blood everywhere, heads chopped off, mothers and children holding each other together and dying together. A man's arm around his child as he sleeps with his baby dead under the rubbles Subhanallah the atrocities cannot be counted.
Now it is over 6000 civilians who have been killed in cold blood, innocent have nothing to do with any of this. This is the last estimate of UNICEF. More than 2640 children, According to UNICEF, have been killed more than 6000 of the population killed and more than 18,000 seriously injured waiting to die.
How is this justice? My brothers and sisters, we read letters coming out from the children and from the families of
children writing letters, Mother, don't cry over me.
I am with Allah.
Another one, a child by the name of Haier writes her will and names every member of her family give this much five to my auntie 45 to my mother, another five to my uncle, another five to my cousin so and so leave another five for my sister so and so as for whatever is belong, whatever is leftover of my clothes, give them to the poor and needy. And she says As for my shoes, give them to the poor, but of course after you cleaned them up.
Another child says Mum, don't worry about me I want to die. Because I heard that in Jana. There is food more than here.
A father who is a reporter, a journalist in the press goes and finds his wife and his children completely massacred. What is his crime and what was their
children under rubble. And the rubble buried in which Allah says in the Quran, are either in Gouda to sue a Let be a them being put in it. And when on that day of judgment, the child that was buried alive will be questioned for what crime were you killed? What was their crime?
Who are the people that because of their brothers and sisters, the people of Gaza Amelie Palestinians who lived outside in different villages and neighborhoods and cities in Palestine before 1948 Before the before Israel became a state
When the massacres began in 1948, in the thing, the first massacre called Daliah scene in which it was an atrocity and a massacre and murder.
The people ran away from the villages and cities. Where did they go? They went as refugees to a little small, tiny strip of land, which is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, a little bit by Egypt and the rest of it by the Israeli state today. It is a small pocket about 40 kilometers long, 11 kilometers wide, it is called the Gaza Strip. These Palestinians are refugees, thinking that they were going to get temporary safety and security. They're only to know that the military came in block them did not allow them to leave for 75 years.
And for 16 years straight, complete blockage, nobody can come in, nobody can get out. There are villages and cities are walking distance away from Gaza, Allah He they cannot even walk back to their cities. And so they were trapped there. And it's famously called an open air prison.
Children who are born there
and haven't even reached 16 years old. They don't know what the world is, like. All they've seen is a prison.
They will probably never see themselves growing up, graduating with a degree or an education. They will never see electricity in a full day. They will never know if they will have water tomorrow, they'll probably die of thirst, which is actually what's happening. These children who are born there, they have never had a day without gum fires and shots and missiles. They've become so immune to them that it's very normal as they play Skippy and hot scotch and, and all that stuff, whatever it is games that little children play, while the missiles above them are falling. Some of them have never been able to see another Palestinian outside of Gaza.
What is their crime?
We saw the man who is in the rubble of his building that had fallen He's holding a big teddy bear next to him and another adult, his wife and two children him he loved, buried under the rubble, we all saw it. What is his crime?
What are their crime?
Another martyr in sha Allah wrote this which affected me. He says to the entire world.
Peace isn't about physical risks. Peace isn't about physical restfulness the absence of thought or the scarcity of sorrow. It's the peace of knowing that everything belongs to God to Allah, that rewards are renewed in proportion to your patience and your repentance. You will definitely be tested. He says, whether through loss, illness or other trials, but Allah is just and to Him we shall return. So find your solace enduring near to him. This is a person dying under the missiles, no fear except he is feeling he is feeling worry for us everywhere in the world.
These people are not afraid my dear brothers and sisters, they're used to it. They know that their children insha Allah our birds in paradise, they know that they will be waiting for them at the doors of Jannah. This is the Muslims belief. What immense faith all these people have strength beyond their imagination. La ilaha illallah some of them said soon will probably be wiped out. Please just remember that we once existed here. The Gazan Palestinians,
my brothers and sisters today, we are witnessing oppression and injustice happening to our brothers and sisters in Gaza. Muslims and Christians were the killing destruction, annexation illegal settlements and occupations as declared by the UN. And in accordance with the international law. I'm not even quoting the Quran here. We are witnessing a retaliation of something they call collective punishment. As termed in the international law of innocent civilians, half of which are children the numbers have surged beyond that any sane mind can fathom toward people who have been trapped there.
My dear brothers and sisters, do not misunderstand me. Islam forbids all forms of injustice killings, whether they are Muslim, Christian or Jews, or any other people of any religion in the world. So much so that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Beware of the prayer of the oppressed, any oppressed person, for there is no veil between it and Allah sahih al Bukhari and Allah says do not transgress even in a fight with someone who is fighting you.
But there is a difference between relentlessly wiping out entire
your city's relentlessly killing 1000s of innocent civilians, children, women and men who are not fighting and are unarmed. On top of that, being persecuted, trapped and imprisoned, and denied their basic human rights and needs, on and off for 75 years and counting.
These people, brothers and sisters, we have not yet heard one of them with a recording, cursing the Jews or mentioning Israel in a bad way. These people don't hate the Jews. Muslims don't hate Jews or Christians or any people because of merely their faith brothers and sisters, nor do they want to kick out the Jews in the Israelites, but want basic equality basic human rights basic right to their own homes basic right to peace and security basic right to their own state. During the Islamic rule, we have witnessed two perfect examples of how the Muslim empire protected and respected the rights of Jews and Christians to live peacefully and harmoniously together in Palestine in the time of
aroma, Barbara the Allahu anhu, the second Khalifa in the seventh century, who welcomed back the Jews into Palestine and Jerusalem after they were exiled, exiled into what they call a dysphoric. Those four out of Jerusalem Palestine for 500 years. And in the seventh century, he welcomed them back and let them live in peace and security and gave him their rights to the point where the Jews who are welcome back made dua in their synagogues for a minute a minute about the Allah Allah is in the history. And the time of Salah had been in a UB the 12th century commander and Sultan, who also liberated Palestine, and then during his entire time allowed the Jews and Christians to live
peacefully and security with all their rights, even through the Ottoman Empire until it fell in World War One in 1921 or 22. The Jews had all the rights with homes even some of them reached government positions. So no religion and Islam and the Muslims did not want to wipe out those that don't want to wipe out people call themselves as renters. We don't want to wipe out Christians.
Allah subhanho wa Taala did not send Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to do that. One companion said the Rasul Allah curse, the kuffaar curse the disbelievers Elana whom he said Lim Obatala Anna, I was not sent as a cursor. What does Allah instead say about him? Why are you sending
me We have not sent your own Muhammad salallahu Salam, except as a mercy to all the worlds
but we have to stand up against injustice. If we don't stand up against injustice, Allah says many places of worship synagogues, churches and houses in which Allah's name is mentioned, will be continuously destroyed, but we have to stand. And the Quran specifically mentions different places of worship.
Finally, I want to say this before my next hotbar
Israel occupies Palestinian land against international law.
These are not my words.
It blockades Palestinian territory against international law.
It destroys it builds and expand settlements against international law. It enforces an apartheid system in which the people are not treated equally or given equal rights restricting Palestinian movement and denies them their equal human rights against international law and their attacks against them. By ways that is not accepted according to international law. Every people have a right to defend themselves. They say yes, we agree. We agree. every nation and every people have a right to defend themselves against an attacker.
But Israel as the politician, Matt Carthy, a member of the European Parliament put it these are his words. He says that this word of defending yourself has been contaminated. As it is Allah is taken as a license to bomb schools, hospitals, and innocent civilians to displace over a million people forcing them to move from one place of an open air prison to another part of it. Does it mean cutting off energy supplies to a besieged population and cutting off water so that children die of thirst or type of action? Which gives a right to what seems or is what is going towards a genocide.
The international community needs to say stop this oppression. Seize the fire, stop the blockade, stop the apartheid stop the annexation and stop the mass killings. My brothers and sisters at the end of the day a believer whether living or dead if in your heart
Do you hold on to your face? In your practices? You practice your deen to the best of your ability individually and with your family with your community. You uphold your values and morals as Allah subhanaw taala said and hold on to Allah's rope, then your living or your death is a victory in sha Allah. Nothing can harm you were the dead or alive. Because Allah has promised those of righteousness in this world at peace in their heart that they can feel a paradise no matter what happens what calamities they face, and in the hereafter insha Allah and everlasting paradise as for the children of Palestine and inshallah they're martyrs. I quote what Allah says, Why Allah Serban
levy you know, butene who is being
and around being immune
I never assumed that those who have been killed in the path of Allah that they are really dead, but rather they are living with their Lord and He is providing them a call to accommodate her there was still fit Allah Honey, we're looking for stuff
Alhamdulillah he Allah Cerny, chakra, Allahu Allah, TOEFL Haven Dinantian wa salatu salam ala Mala and Abby
Lee, he was so happy as you know, in my brothers and sisters, my brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah our iman is strong. And our unity, we can see it now. But this has to continue. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows that we worship Him, and we love our salah, and that was the cat and our fasting and our husband hombre and all of that.
But there are three things that Allah tells us to be people of justice, equality, and goodness.
And lastly, we call to action.
The Australian Government to start taking a balanced stance play a pivotal role in demanding a ceasefire to enforce the international laws which they have broken the Israelis and advocating for justice, equality and peace for the Palestinians equally as for the Muslim community, make dua for your brothers and sisters. Number two, give charity to your brothers and sisters and all those who are victims. Number three education we need to educate ourselves. And number four, lobby the government and write to your ministers and MPs Walla Hamdulillah. It's been having an effect us that what Allah has given you a man Allah subhanho wa Taala protect you. Protect our brothers and sisters
protect the innocent, may Allah subhanho wa Taala look after the victims wherever they are. May Allah subhana wa Taala unite the hearts on goodness and justice. May Allah subhana wa Taala bring about a change from injustice to justice from evil to good May Allah Subhan Allah have mercy upon those who have been slain and killed. May Allah subhanahu wa ala give patients in protection and perseverance for those who stand up for righteousness and justice. May Allah Subhana Allah protect you, my brothers and sisters and protect all the people of the world who stand together for righteousness and justice. May Allah reward the non Muslims and those among the Jewish population
and the Christian population, the Hindu and Buddhist and all the populations, the atheists even who are standing in the underside of righteousness and justice, we have seen them and hamdulillah May Allah reward them and protect their families as well. And may Allah protect our children and yours from going astray. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make Jana and the hereafter eternal abode Amin a bird Allah in number moto Benard nearly so anyway.
