The article I'm about to fold the relationship on Regina Smith

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

well what made you want to go to the Napa Valley? Oh he

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

set up a log as

00:00:13 --> 00:01:06

my dad expected What am I spoilers elders in Redis we begin by praising Almighty Allah subhanho wa taala. Studying cetaceans upon our beloved rekening sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it gives me great pleasure to be in this Masjid. Especially when we have the opportunity to be part of the establishment of this Make dua other than that Allah accepted the sha Allah and Allah Tala created a means of recording in our book of good deeds in sha Allah does this record the time again one or two talks to tell you the temporary structure that was here before they move into the budget. And also the time that we did fundraising for this magic. And we make dua that Allah Allah accept everyone's

00:01:06 --> 00:01:24

effort in making this masjid and establishing this Masjid wonderful massage either the love for that and Oh My Allah He I had to massage it belong to Almighty Allah and do not call out towards anyone but Allah in the massage it and there is a very great

00:01:26 --> 00:02:16

link between our iman and love for the Masjid. Maybe a cream so Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whenever you see a person who is linked to the masjid, and he loves the masjid, then bear testimony to his Imam, their destiny, testimony to his faith, and then our beloved to be a cream sauce and red diet, which is in surah Tauba in nama Yahoo. masajid Allah, Muhammad Abdullah, who will your will ask him, only those who attend to the masjid and will keep a relationship with a masjid Muhammad Avila will believe in Allah and the day of Tiamat. So our attachment should be with a merchant all the time. One of the signs of a believer is the moment he leaves the Masjid. He is anxious when can

00:02:16 --> 00:02:36

I come back to the masjid. Today, unfortunately, we don't have that type of relationship with the Masjid. But there's a topic that we have at hand is our responsibility to the community. Now firstly, let me start off by saying that Allah has created us alone, when we came to this world we were alone.

00:02:39 --> 00:02:48

Unless you are twins, otherwise everyone comes along. And Allah on the day of the AMA, we are going to account for our deeds alone.

00:02:50 --> 00:03:19

We are going to be in the cover alone. What to do now for other comers, Annapurna como, whatever, you will come to me alone, individually, the way you were born individually, you will come to me alone, the way you were born alone, on the day of Tiamat, we all going to answer for our own deeds. That is why sometimes it's surprising to be more worried about everyone else.

00:03:20 --> 00:03:48

We are more worried about everyone else. We don't worry about our own self. One of our scholars used to say that today. People fear Allah with regard to the sins of others. They don't feel now with regard to their own sins. Today, people fear Allah with regard to the sins of others. Do you see people saying, Oh, look at how the community is committing Buddha and be doing this for our own good, I'm not worried about our own sins, we're not worried.

00:03:49 --> 00:04:05

So people are more afraid of Allah about the sins of others than their own sense. And that is why in the, in our in our deal, phase a great amount of respect for individual privacy,

00:04:07 --> 00:04:11

latter photo booth and ultra boutique that establish what to sell him or

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

don't enter into anyone's home until you seek permission. And you make Salam upon the people of the house.

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

And if a person tells you, when you go in visiting, and you knock at his door and you say I want to come and visit or you phone him and he says I'm not in a position to be a host to you, I am not in a position for you to come now. I am busy. I'm going out. I got some work. We're in a period of orgy oferuje Oh, who has telephone? If he tells you go back, then go back. It is better for you. Because Islam values individual primacy. So we are people who Islam has given a greater

00:05:00 --> 00:05:26

amount of importance to individual privacy and the fact of individual accountability before Almighty Allah. However, after saying that, there's also a fine balance in individual rights, individual duties, and our duties towards the collective. Allah is made of social beings. We are supposed to interact with one another.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:31

And interaction. He takes on these difficulty.

00:05:32 --> 00:05:39

When you interact with people, it's difficult. When you interact with people there is trials, which

00:05:41 --> 00:05:44

will leave us any fitna at us be rude.

00:05:46 --> 00:06:08

I have made each and every religion relationship, a trial, your relationship, father and son, or husband and wife, one of it is trying to well, how do you deal with a trial of the relationship at the zoo? Adopt patience. When you're dealing with one another. You have to adopt patience.

00:06:10 --> 00:06:13

But we are social beings, we are going to have to interact with people.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:35

So sometimes, you know we make a joke, but we got married one day that the husband and wife were having an argument. So sometimes you see, husbands may look at things differently. Females look at things differently. So now one of the spouses, I won't say which spouse, one of them said I'm going to not talk to my spouse for one whole week.

00:06:36 --> 00:06:59

Because I'm angry with them. I want to show them a point. I want to show them I'm angry with them. So I'm not going to speak to them for a couple of days. I'm not going to speak to them. So this spouse was thinking I am giving a punishment to the other spouse. So after a few days, the other spouse started saying it seems we are getting along quite well nowadays.

00:07:00 --> 00:07:10

Nowadays, it seems you are getting along quite well. So Allah has made this insane Muslim days. And Muslim world in a Wii U Harlequin as well as Euro Anna,

00:07:12 --> 00:07:15

a woman a Muslim in the lives of Harlequin, as well as

00:07:16 --> 00:08:01

a Muslim who interacts with people. And he, he makes supper upon the inconvenience is better than a Muslim who doesn't interact and better than a Muslim who doesn't have to pay the inconvenience of interaction. And I see so many people will tell you this. I don't get involved with the community. I don't have time. I don't want to, you know, listen to nonsense. I don't want to get involved in it. That is not the way of Muslims, the Muslim we eat the X and interaction you are going to get inconvenience, you have to bear the difficulty of someone telling you something. And you have to bear the inconvenience of a person's temperament which is different to yours to yours. That Muslim

00:08:01 --> 00:08:04

is better than the Muslim who doesn't interact.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:20

And my dear respected brothers, there is a great amount of Baraka in working together, this great amount of blessings in working together. We are amongst people who worry about the collective. We don't really worry about ourself.

00:08:22 --> 00:08:34

In Surya see Allah has made mention of the incident of a person whose name Allah didn't mention with Raju mill absolute Medina TSR.

00:08:36 --> 00:08:42

Allah Tala sell three prophets to one place. The people didn't accept them didn't listen to them.

00:08:45 --> 00:09:00

So when they didn't listen to them, so then what they did was this person who was an ordinary person, he was an ordinary person. You know, I find it very amazing.

00:09:02 --> 00:09:11

Allah has made mention of an ordinary person in the Quran, who is not originally who is not perhaps a very well known saint.

00:09:13 --> 00:09:23

He is an ordinary he was a carpenter by trade. But Allah mentions him in Surah Yasi that we are supposed to read surah Yaseen everyday after fajr

00:09:25 --> 00:09:37

XL Molina DS, a person key to the people of the city. Caller you're interviewing Mussolini, who people follow this interview of Allah. Why can't you follow Him?

00:09:38 --> 00:09:39

It is

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

they don't ask for any

00:09:43 --> 00:09:48

renumeration and they don't they don't make any demands upon you.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:55

They are giving you right yes commands. So look at this.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

So they after the people got angry with

00:10:00 --> 00:10:02

In the marketing, they killed him.

00:10:04 --> 00:10:05

And after he was three,

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

Allah Tala put him in Jannah

00:10:10 --> 00:10:13

put him in jail and put him in jail.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:31

When he was in China, he made dua to Almighty Allah. Ya late the homie ronamoon demise of earlier Obi Wan Shalini Minam Nakatomi Oh Allah. If only you can show my people what we have done to me, by me following the prophets

00:10:32 --> 00:10:50

after they killed him, he was worried about his people. He was worried about the Hidayat of his people. After they killed him. He still worried about them, will not show them what may have done to me that they might realize that they must come up on the right path.

00:10:51 --> 00:10:54

The same thing happened with our beloved family, the Battle of

00:10:56 --> 00:11:01

Libya, creamy sauce was wounded. And blood started coming from the body of the saucer and bruised.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:16

And one of the Sahaba I think it was put by the interviewer said yellow Sula, look at what they have done to you. Yes, we are now you know, make a dua against them. Because then Allah must destroy them.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:21

So they'll be a cream so Allahu Allah was sort of lifted his hands into it.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:44

And some of the Sahaba became very happy because they couldn't bear and maybe a cream sauce will be hurt in such a manner. So they felt that maybe a cream sauce is going to now make dua canister and the resources lifted up his head is in the Battle of what after getting, you know, bruised and battered and hurt by the same people. A lot of money moving for him no.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:56

I was lucky to my people, they're ignorant. In all of those people who hurt me, who choose the level of his beloved uncle mutilated the body of his beloved uncle, they became Muslims.

00:11:58 --> 00:12:17

So we are people who worry about the collective. We are not the people who are only worried about our individual self. And it is it is our duty to be part of a community. Allah Tala in our deen has given us structures to maintain the community. One of them is Salah, po Jana.

00:12:19 --> 00:12:41

Well, in Serato Jana to come together, you've come to know collective. If someone who's everyday in the masjid and he doesn't come to the masjid for four days. The people who always come and say, What is wrong with him? Maybe six of us make dua that is good because maybe something has happened and it comes in a hadith that when you are regular in a masjid for Serato

00:12:42 --> 00:13:03

and if you don't come for few days, nevermind your fellow merciless, even the angels start making dua to Almighty Allah, Oh Allah, this person used to come to the masjid. He's not coming for several days. He's not coming because he's killed the other drunken Shiva coming to you. And if he's not coming because you've got certain difficulty, the Allah removed those that

00:13:04 --> 00:13:09

lie is given us certain things to maintain the community. Why is it so

00:13:11 --> 00:13:16

certain set up cannot be performed backwards, connected to can perform drummer on your own.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:26

We have to perform it collectively. So Allah is made as part of our community when our beloved Livia cream sauce came to Madina, Munawwara

00:13:27 --> 00:13:44

they tend to be a cream sauce, we made several different communities to deal with. You had the use of Manila, you had the answer? You heard the old sweat the hustlers, who used to all the time fight f7 Most and then you had the people who migrated from monka came to Medina.

00:13:45 --> 00:13:56

You see one of the reasons one of the benefits of it is that all the collective Arman which Islam has commanded only came alive in Madina Munawwara

00:13:57 --> 00:14:25

in Makkah, there was no collect a farmer you couldn't make and collect the farmer was even difficult to make Sulaco Jana and we all know the incident the only member of the ultra me became a Muslim. He told the people that let us go and make syrup or tomato otherwise it was not even possible even after that it was difficult. But after you came to Madina, Munawwara all the collective armor became alive. So most of the deeds which are collective,

00:14:26 --> 00:14:57

or were revealed in Madina, Munawwara the law of inheritance, the law of business, the longest verse in the Holy Quran is about business. The longest verse in the Holy Quran is about business. Yeah, even that in another way that ultimately, Elijah Lim was someone who, when you give someone alone, have two witnesses and write it down, record it, that you don't go into dispute of this. This is part of the collective type of our mind, the collective

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

commands of our beloved

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

We have our D that all came alive.

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

So when we are cream sauce can add all of these people together via crimson Allahu Allah wa salam did a mythique made a bet? How are we going to live together?

00:15:16 --> 00:15:24

To 47 clauses in this particular 47 clauses? How are we going to live together?

00:15:25 --> 00:15:51

The occurring sorcerer was the Emir. If there is any dispute, it will be referred to the reoccurring sorcerer, but 47 clauses of how you are going to live together as a community. And in there, there were Muslims, non Muslims. And therefore you find that there are different ways of living together as a community. One is living committed, living together as a community with people of your own faith.

00:15:52 --> 00:16:12

And one is living together with a community where you are in a community where people of different faiths and we have responsibilities and we have commands for both. How do you live together with people of your own faith in a community? And how do you live together in a community where people of different faiths

00:16:13 --> 00:16:37

so how do we think about the first signal has to come out? In fact, it's a good idea Sara Murray Allahu Quran who narrates it when he came, he always because in the previous scriptures mentioned is made that the last prophet of Allah will come. So in the last prophet of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala will come, you know, you will have certain quantities, and Larina Tina, we will get up Yachty for

00:16:40 --> 00:16:50

those who have been given the scriptures, they recognize the last prophet, they recognize that this is the way you will recognize your own children.

00:16:51 --> 00:17:03

Allah in the Quran didn't even see how you recognize your parents, to you know why? The owner might have said, no one has seen his parents becoming his parents.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:26

But you know about your own children. So Allah says, they recognize the prophet the way they the way you recognize your own children. So he realized that this is the last messenger of ALLAH. So he came, and he said, when he came to see the reoccurrence Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said the moment he set his eyes on the face of NaVi salsa, we said Lola, Hey Lisa.

00:17:27 --> 00:17:38

This can never be the face of a liar. So much of Nora so much of illumination, so much of blessings in the surroundings. And he said the first words I heard many utterings Aslam saying

00:17:40 --> 00:17:52

when he came to Medina made me realize he's a prophet of Almighty Allah He just further cemented my initial thoughts. You will nurse up to Salam o people spread this

00:17:54 --> 00:18:03

one Hadith make salam to those whom you know in those of you don't know, we only make salam to whom we know that's not a standard method. After one of

00:18:04 --> 00:18:13

those whom you know, when those of you don't know, actually Salam quatro Tam, who people feed the poor, feed people

00:18:15 --> 00:18:34

will sit on her hand and oh people keep the ties of relationship together. was a lovely lady witness to the M and perform Sarah in the darkness of the night when people are sleeping, the whole gentleman in the salon, you will enter into Islam. Most come you will enter into Jana and most comfortable,

00:18:35 --> 00:18:52

comfortable. So the first thing that we occurring sausage and bacon sausage brought the community together, he created a more fun, he created a brotherhood between the people at the hatchery who came from a different country from inside. And he made that into one

00:18:53 --> 00:18:54

in a minute.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:09

One brother was made them into one product. See when you when you get people from different communities coming together in a community, please always a certain amount of

00:19:10 --> 00:19:18

temperament that we have to take into account. People have different temperaments. People who have different types of different temperaments today we can

00:19:20 --> 00:19:35

look at what's happening in the world today, located in South Africa, xenophobic attacks every now and then look at what's happening in Europe, when you see the type of lack of humanity that will allow a ship to see rather than coming to your shores,

00:19:36 --> 00:19:43

because people can relate with regard to people of different temperaments and different nations coming together.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:48

As he brought people together he made me

00:19:49 --> 00:19:59

in the first thing he did was make people of your own faith come together. He taught the oneness of the Muslim faith. How did he teach him

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

In the room, you know that

00:20:02 --> 00:20:21

the believers are one brother. And you know how beautifully the Quran has described this brotherhood? You know how pitifully Islam the Quran has described his brother. You see normally when you tell someone makes you know nobody will say this salaam to another person

00:20:23 --> 00:20:27

you will tell someone don't kill another person.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:53

Don't take out force of another person. It's a moment where you will see but look at the Quranic method of addressing the believers for suddenly you unforeseeable mix alarm to yourself, I will mix it up yourself. But how Elias put it when you make salaam to your brother you making salaam to yourself

00:20:54 --> 00:20:56

for that to do.

00:20:59 --> 00:21:28

Don't kill yourself, who kills himself, unless some people commit suicide but by and large, you don't kill yourself. Hear the alarm? I say the least. Don't kill your Muslim brother, but I will not put it don't give yourself for Latin visual and full circle. Don't look for false in yourself. The meaning is not true for false in yourself. Don't look for false in your Muslim brother, our allies.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:39

Don't look for forcing yourself to look out for the faults of your Muslim brother is like looking for the faults of yourself What joy do you get?

00:21:40 --> 00:22:30

What joy do you get in and when you look out for the faults of other people, it tells you more about your own temperament, your own conduct during the conduct and the force of another person. You see what am I given this example the earth throws up good in bed the earth throws up good in bed, you get fruit you get vegetables, you get the most beautiful fruit, you get melons whatever when you get mangoes and you get oranges, the fruit for the earth Frasca in Navarre follicle, happy one Allah, Allah is the One who split the seeds in the, in the midst of the earth, and from there, all the fruit and vegetation comes alive, comes into being comes into existence. But that comes from the

00:22:30 --> 00:22:34

roof, but the earth also throws up fruit.

00:22:36 --> 00:23:00

So it depends on your temperament, what you will take from the earth. If you are good in your temperament, you will take out the beautiful fruits and vegetable. But if you are, you know rotten anyone and you are filthy, the swine, even if there is fruits, and these vegetable, beautiful, wholesome won't eat it is.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:20

So it's not the fault of the earth. That was put in bed. It depends upon you what you look at the what what we take out from the earth, in a similar manner there is good and bad amongst human beings, even what they couldn't get. It depends upon you what you look out for in human needs. So

00:23:22 --> 00:23:32

until this beautiful way you are one make salaam to yourself. Don't kill yourself. Don't search for false in yourself. As Muslim Brotherhood is one

00:23:33 --> 00:23:34

in the middle, no one

00:23:36 --> 00:23:57

is searching the sacredness of your next Muslim brother. Until a normal human conversation that will be occurring. So Allah Allah wa salam, one day, you know, he was making dua for the Kaaba in the Ventura and he looked at the Kaaba in Mecca and said very great is your status, very greatest of status and who can deny the status of the Cabal people

00:23:58 --> 00:24:15

that govern people are first put up by Grant other militia then by primary salatu salam that many people make come off of it here we rush and we love to go to the Cabal, even if these difficulties, even if we have to get visa, that you have to have a quota but you still want to go

00:24:16 --> 00:24:32

and then directly above it in Batum. The angels Make our faith rewire it's made mentioned narrations mentioned that 70,000 Angels built off of beta Mahmood directly above taba everyday. They never get a chance again.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:42

Such a secret and the resource to address the cover very great issue of sacred mascara taken off by the bead in whose hands my life is

00:24:43 --> 00:24:46

the sacredness of a believer is critical Do

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

you sometimes speak to we regard a Muslim owner as sacred as a cover? Which is what Minister Islam told us when we abused the cover

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

We found but yet we abuse people.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:07

We may be backed by people. We, we talk bad about people.

00:25:08 --> 00:25:15

This brotherhood military disaster analysts told us so much with regard to unity of this Muslim brotherhood that Allah

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

Allah is hand of assistance is upon the United rod. That means, if you are not united and as a systems won't come upon you,

00:25:26 --> 00:25:33

no matter how much you have to do, if you are not united Allah systems won't come upon you in America tomorrow.

00:25:34 --> 00:25:39

The blessings of Elijah upon the United Club, where you are not united, there is no blessings.

00:25:40 --> 00:26:06

So this this is the way Elias emphasized looking at the teachings emphasizing the oneness of the Muslim Brotherhood. Then he also told us about things that you must stay away from. And he has told us about qualities that enhance the Muslim Brotherhood in the community. Laser movement of the time, when I build the hand what else watch one of the building a movement is not here you don't see other people

00:26:07 --> 00:26:19

don't think means you speak dead. About a person in front of you, you abusing you swear him, suburban woman Infosoft.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:46

To swear, a believer is the highest form of transgression and still no killing him is tougher. Familiar, Minamata multimedia refer to sell what you're handing them Mohammed and fear. If you kill a believer, you will remain in Jahannam forever. Quranic tells us okay, thermo. Now Rachel abou mini does not don't tell abuse other people.

00:26:47 --> 00:27:10

And you know, there's two things one is pointing a person in his face and one is speaking behind him, which is that by two, I will give him a martini mater for courage. You will not love eating the flesh of your dead Muslim brother. And Backbiting is like eating the flesh of God that costume so this is

00:27:13 --> 00:27:31

the aspect of tabula rasa what is more serious is abusing a person who is faced more serious question but the more serious someone Am I said that Biting is more serious because the person who you are get by it he can't defend himself

00:27:32 --> 00:27:49

and some will arrive said no to Anna the army is more serious because you got no respect for a person you are using it in front of him. So different is a technicality the Alama and discuss things with them today. We talk about people we abuse people we use sarcasm

00:27:51 --> 00:28:03

sarcasm is also a certain thing you know there's one person was one day you know he was speaking to a person and he felt that the person wasn't listened to he repeated himself to the other person said Don't repeat yourself I was ignoring you

00:28:05 --> 00:28:12

so when we do we get recorded everybody apology he axon came into my bones Monday must be beautiful.

00:28:13 --> 00:28:19

And then the weekend is awesome said well I've been you don't appear don't curse the next Muslim brother.

00:28:21 --> 00:28:25

One day Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allah Toronto, quote, he was one of the servants.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:34

And you know, his anger he was seeking service saying certain things that we actually saw from the past and what didn't really occur in this

00:28:35 --> 00:28:44

city when I need color of the carpet by the Lord of the cover, acidic and abusing people cannot tell.

00:28:45 --> 00:29:08

How can I see DP one who abuses other people who are more worker it doesn't. It doesn't be all of you to be able to do these type of things. You are so great. You are the best and this woman will only learn whatever for whatever buddy, you are not vulgar to people. You are not abusive to people. Today unfortunately, the more vulgar a person is the more biases

00:29:09 --> 00:29:44

when you see a person abusing people you say very very pious. Please remove me Nobita on the line what at first? What a pity Subhan Allah these attacks I'm the only one that was salam never taunted abused people. They kept the community together. Look at the Quran in the day tomorrow when he had as a rural so that was set up when he's tried to again call the mother will Rita follow many COVID in Ireland Urraca FISA winner and those who come

00:29:46 --> 00:29:57

in who recently presented the truth to them, what did they tell you? Oh, good, you are foolish, ignorant person and have a biller and we look upon you as a liar.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

Today if someone who could tell us

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

If you are foolish, and you are a liar, how would we react?

00:30:05 --> 00:30:15

Most likely where do you go from here? Your father is your father he selectors Philippines in decorated. What did the Navy offer Nadeau

00:30:16 --> 00:30:36

00:30:38 --> 00:31:08

One side they have using this one side is the type of Subhanallah what type of most beautiful conduct that's how a community comes together. There are people who will be weak in the community. There will be people who want to rob in the community how do we deal with Maria long term one day I heard about a person who had taken two runways he had taken alcohol he was drinking so much of the allotting wrote him a letter.

00:31:09 --> 00:31:19

And in that letter tomorrow, the allow Toronto wrote the beginning is of Surah, Rafik. Surah moment perfect, some people copied it told me she literally accompany him,

00:31:20 --> 00:31:38

telling him to repent and come upon the right path. He told the person taking the letter, give him the letter when he saw birth, and tell me what is his reaction. So when, when, when the person when waited for him to be sober, gave him the letter you read it started crying.

00:31:39 --> 00:32:12

He said look at martial law. Allah is telling me Shegerian he is very severe in giving punishment. The total he's got capacity to punish you. He got capacity to take you to task. But he's also telling me despite his powers offering me welcoming, he told me he forgives the sins of the repentant and he accepts the repentance of people. He cried every day Toba said I'm not ever going to take a call again. The person tell you to report more on your loved

00:32:13 --> 00:32:27

one of your love and also cried made to her for him. And he said, This is the way you tell people who are wrong how to come up on the right path. Don't don't give shaytan the upper hand over them.

00:32:28 --> 00:32:39

You are going to abuse him you will tell him you are you are Garfield, you have Santa you are facet you have budget, that person is going to fulfill your prophecies. He's going to go further away.

00:32:42 --> 00:32:52

This is how we fire then, of course, very last year, this type of group we love. This is one this is how the brothers will this community was strong.

00:32:53 --> 00:32:55

When this map was strong,

00:32:56 --> 00:33:22

you know, it is amazing. It not only protected itself, protected, it's old, but it protected others when it was strong. When this community was strong. It protected not only its own, it protected others muda Cymbala was a ruler in our history, not regarded to be the amongst the better Buddhists in our history.

00:33:23 --> 00:33:33

But not in most things abducted three Muslim woman. And as they were taking them in abduction. They said wow, notice in my book, this is where

00:33:34 --> 00:33:39

you say you are the leader of the Muslims. And we have been abducted we are here.

00:33:40 --> 00:33:48

So moto co wrote a letter to the king and the soldiers of the king of the soldiers who abducted the Muslim woman.

00:33:50 --> 00:33:52

He said you release those Muslim woman

00:33:53 --> 00:34:04

otherwise I would send an army from Baghdad. By the time the first portion of the army reaches you. The last portion will still be the report that

00:34:05 --> 00:34:07

you released to the woman

00:34:08 --> 00:34:12

you had no alternative but police today what do we hear?

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

To see what's happening?

00:34:17 --> 00:34:21

I can't even see those clips. People say look at this and see

00:34:22 --> 00:34:27

what all Muslim sisters are the whole horrible things are happening to them.

00:34:29 --> 00:34:42

And we can't do it because the collective is not there. The Collective is not there. There was a time when the collective was strong. That is what happened. Three particular introduction, sent an old HMI

00:34:43 --> 00:34:59

to read 1000s of etc. Make dua Matala except for what goes decisive company systems. When this money was thrown, the collective was thrown even with the Christians they

00:35:00 --> 00:35:07

abused and persecuted and oppress the Jews. The Muslims occasion.

00:35:08 --> 00:35:10

Refuge couldn't look at our history.

00:35:12 --> 00:35:32

When they were when they were in Spain when the Jews were being oppressed, they found refuge in North Africa, they found refuge in Spain, a look at our history. When he was thrown, we protected our own. We protected other people's three with a collective is not there. What is our situation? In a hurry Boomer to come home Martha Wahida

00:35:35 --> 00:35:47

is an 1817 Jews of the Quran. That is what an amazing the Quran doesn't say things just like that. This one, but these one on one, edit lead the one most of

00:35:51 --> 00:35:52

it leave the one

00:35:55 --> 00:36:00

and make it better to have it linked the oneness and the unity of that woman was divided.

00:36:02 --> 00:36:08

Then you have another type of inhumanity that is how do we live with people of other faiths? Let me just tell you five minutes ago that

00:36:10 --> 00:36:15

we believe it's our belief that we we have

00:36:16 --> 00:36:24

and we believe in the supremacy of what we believe in the Lena interline is now the United authorizes law.

00:36:25 --> 00:36:31

Allah has chosen this provision for us. And therefore we are even

00:36:34 --> 00:36:36

in a situation

00:36:37 --> 00:36:44

where we are in a minority or with other people, we preserve our identity

00:36:46 --> 00:36:50

and we guard our identity. Chelsea,

00:36:51 --> 00:36:56

Islam is very, very sensitive about this distinctive identity.

00:36:57 --> 00:37:22

When the non Muslims came and said that you come in worship our idols political while we become Muslims point one rewired, put a hand over your idols we will become Muslims. And let Allah normally in the Quran when he addresses believers, he says yeah, you will live in harmony when he addresses believers in this believers. He says, Yeah, you want as the first time you said whole year you will have your own. Or you will just believe we don't worship what you wish

00:37:23 --> 00:37:23

to do.

00:37:27 --> 00:37:30

We don't worship or to worship, we are distinctive.

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

We are very, but beyond that. In terms of

00:37:38 --> 00:37:39

common humanity,

00:37:40 --> 00:38:27

in terms of kindness, in terms of compassion, we are supposed to be part of the community, we are supposed to show those particular type of qualities in dealing with people of other things lie on her Kamala, and Hillary in a new car to deal with them. You're free to commit they are equal and above who are toxic to in a letter to prevent you with regard to those people of other faiths, who are not hostile to you, who Don't expel you from your homes. People like where we in Kenya, UK, South Africa. People are not that hostile, we still can live in our homes. What does Allah tell you about people of fear that people of other faiths who Don't expel you are not hostile, and double

00:38:27 --> 00:38:32

room you'll be kind to them, and you will be just to them,

00:38:33 --> 00:38:34

to be kind to them.

00:38:35 --> 00:38:42

And the word that is new is there in the Hadith literature as anyone who has read it, as you saw in the room validate

00:38:43 --> 00:38:49

kindness to your parents, that same word Allah uses for people of other faiths who are not hostile.

00:38:51 --> 00:38:57

The Prophet of Almighty Allah has realized the common humanity of people. One day he got up, and there was a janazah going fast.

00:38:59 --> 00:39:02

I know he's not a human being.

00:39:03 --> 00:39:18

When people in Makkah when they were oppressing the via cream sauce, was suffering from famine and drought. Sustaining, despite the limited resources here 500 dinars 500 gold coins

00:39:19 --> 00:39:26

at a time when they were trying to attack Muslims. Five other gold coins today. We help them out in the crowd.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:47

Maybe a cream sauce. So in short, these are the type of finish. And of course sometimes, when you are a part of a community, there are certain things that are not essentially only based on faith but our community and societal problems. We have to deal with it as a society as a community.

00:39:48 --> 00:40:00

What is the importance of our own facial which I given you have for example, one is a broader, the broader and broader fish. We believe in our faith and we don't believe in the oneness of faith, but

00:40:00 --> 00:40:01

The broader community and the broader society.

00:40:02 --> 00:40:04

So how do you see drugs,

00:40:05 --> 00:40:49

crime are not faith related issues, just societal issues. So even if you are within your own faith and you don't deal with it as a community, when people come to your community, if you don't deal with crime and safety and security, as the community as people have enabled, then what's going to happen to you one day it might come upon you where you your safety is going to be compromised. And the vehicle is also unpaid. You know, the vehicle exhaust masala today you'll see deja atta Santa hat as an employer knows a wonderful vehicle he's lost so much emphasize the rights of the neighborhood that I felt for a moment that he is going to make them part of your estate. Can you

00:40:49 --> 00:40:57

imagine? As it is, we have enough problems with our estate with a whole family. Can you imagine your neighbor was part of our state? What would have happened?

00:40:59 --> 00:41:17

I'm colliding with your loved one they started a ship which was to be very, very tight. And he said the first person you give the meat to is the to his neighbor. Give him the first portion of the week was good with that not be a cream sauce. No one day when he was a Jewish youngster was

00:41:18 --> 00:41:43

and I always tell people who say follow the Sunnah. How many people have Allah follow the Quran visit a non Muslim in your neighborhood to see if we ever done but let me source from the now it's a different matter that when the vehicle exhausted when he saw some inviting Islam, and maybe a crimson Allah wa sallam told him, you know, become a Muslim, he looked up at his father was a Jewish person in a cream salesman is a prophet. And he said,

00:41:44 --> 00:41:44

Follow up.

00:41:46 --> 00:41:49

And he became a Muslim for resources mission professor.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:59

So that is part of the neighborhood. You know, they said about Mr. Muhammad Ali, a Jewish neighbor, for it was a Christian, non Muslim neighbor put up his house to say,

00:42:01 --> 00:42:05

can only put up his house to say we put a couple the market and someone said, Why are you putting it up on the market?

00:42:06 --> 00:42:16

He said, half the price half is the market value. The other half is the distinction to be a neighbor to subject.

00:42:19 --> 00:42:28

The other half I'm putting it double the market value to be a to the and have the distinction of being a neighbor like such a great person

00:42:30 --> 00:42:59

to return to a label, there's a price go up or go down. Can you imagine this is something that we have to learn from Miguel spectabilis. So we have all of endogenous called lasting opportunity, by being part of the community, then you've got an opportunity to go in and show people the beauty of Islam. And we believe in what we got is a solution to the ills of the entire community society in the world. How are we good, we got to keep it to ourselves.

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

We have to have confidence to be able to show it to people how to give people a mama Mimosa

00:43:06 --> 00:43:21

was from the one tribe that used to give a lot of difficulty to the Muslims in himself used to give a lot of you know, whenever Muslims used to pass him to attack them. So they got ahold of him one day the rest of the drug into multi material level with the resource from locked him up.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:28

locked him up on one of the pillars and the reoccurring saw some cases Amala how was it two.

00:43:30 --> 00:44:01

He said, If you so favor to me, and you'll be good to me, I promise you I will repay your kindness because there will be no one who was repay kindness, I will repay. And if you kill me, then you will be entitled to kill me because of all the wrongs that I have done in the past. Although you did make mention of a threat. My tribe will not take it lightly. They will take revenge. But if you kill me you will be entitled I've done a lot of harm to USA Muslims. The recurring source the lefty someone is so out of those things will stay in the masjid.

00:44:02 --> 00:44:15

And after, after a few days in business, cocaine and rocky go tomorrow, I think he went outside. It took a hosel he came back in he became a Muslim and you know what he told the resources.

00:44:16 --> 00:44:23

He said one week ago, I hated you. I never ever hated the human being the way I interview.

00:44:24 --> 00:44:29

And I take an oath today. I love you more than any other you wouldn't be

00:44:30 --> 00:44:33

one week of seeing the prophets

00:44:36 --> 00:44:54

in episod Oh my God. Let me conclude with this. Make mention that one day, a person who used to harm the Muslims was brought into Medina and when he was brought into Medina humara villafana No, no more of your Latino HLR patient for the nurse will allow me to execute.

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

And we encourage those who want to leave him alone. Let me speak to you

00:45:00 --> 00:45:05

America himself has spoken, answered his questions and he became a Muslim.

00:45:07 --> 00:45:28

He was insistent that he must be executed because of what he didn't previously perhaps, and the resources spoke to him and he became a Muslim. And then a reoccurring source told him, Oh, what is this not better than what you had suggested? Is this not better than what we had suggested. And because of that, one during the time of humans Khalifa philosopher,

00:45:29 --> 00:45:44

there were certain group of people who will be turned away from Islam. Now in Islam, in a proper Islamic environment, to turn against an Islamic State is akin to treason. And the death of treason in every particular civilization, in every law is death.

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

So the killing, so when he came to Omaha, to speak to him about Islam

00:45:51 --> 00:45:56

before, you know, we said how did we just execute a person without explaining

00:45:57 --> 00:46:15

and there's gonna be a cream sauce and I'm also spoke to the person who became a Muslim woman, Isn't this better than what you say? Who used to cry, used to cry and he said, I wanted to execute upon because this person they after went out into the air and he became shaved. And what else have you said I wanted to execute a person

00:46:16 --> 00:46:46

who became a Muslim he became a shitty plus way we got this opportunity when we living together with people. So in conclusion, I said firstly, I spoke about individual privacy the individual bytes, we are going to go to a little hand all the way we are born at all, but we are social beings, the importance of the community. I give you the example of Surah Yasin of Habib Naja Naja event is covered with a Turkish earthquake took place in her tea. That way is covered is

00:46:47 --> 00:47:25

that person who is an ordinary person but because of his love for his community. A letter has made mention of one of the reasons Allah makes mention of inniscarra Yasi we are part of a community in being part of a community we have to we have to make Subak the Muslim Allah the Johanna Turner's whereas below Allah Tao, Cairo, Mina, Muslim Isla de lado Holly tunas, when I used to Allah, a Muslim, your impact is better than a Muslim owning that, even if you have to bear with patient the inconvenience of other people, then there are two types of interactions. One is the interaction of the the faith, people of the same faith. I give you examples of the oneness of the speed. And those

00:47:25 --> 00:47:56

quantities that you have to stay away from that brings the community together. And then I suppose give you an example of the other broader community that we are in where we are in minorities. May Allah give us a topic of understanding the importance of the community and working together to make our community stronger. We might not be able to achieve oneness of the entire Muslim world, but we can work towards making our neighborhood in our community one strong community Inshallah, can we do that in sha Allah Subhan Allah will be handy. So Annika we have

00:47:59 --> 00:48:26
