00:00:58--> 00:01:00

allows for Hannah Tyler

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

speaks

00:01:04--> 00:01:09

about jihad in the Holy Quran allows handleless speaks in many, many, many verses

00:01:10--> 00:01:22

about the six or con rucola Islam namely jihad. When Allah says, I do feel I have a jihadi watch the Baku Allah says and

00:01:24--> 00:02:00

exert yourself in jihad in the path of Allah subhanaw taala whatever COVID He is the one who have chosen you for this. He chose you and he speaks to the prophet in the harbor and he speaks to us. And he said, You've been chosen this of this home has been chosen for jihad. Then Ibiza Salam says al Jihad Mauldin Allahumma tiama the Jihad will remain until the day of prayer, it has to remain. And we can see why we look at the world today we can see why jihad is such an important activity of Muslims, as it has been for the last 14 centuries.

00:02:01--> 00:02:07

Today, we have a lawless world, a world that reminds us of the old

00:02:10--> 00:02:22

American Indian movies have, you know, the bad guys and the good guys? the good guys, the guys with all the firepower. And then the other guys only were their bows and arrows.

00:02:24--> 00:02:37

So today, we have the same world we live in a world where some people have bows and arrows. And we live in a world where some people have nuclear weapons. And we live in a world with some people have a lot of power, a lot of money power, a lot of monetary power.

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

And we live in a world where

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

consultation

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

and accountability is not to be found anymore.

00:02:50--> 00:03:07

People are accountable for what they do. We look at the lawless society we live in, in South Africa. Every single this agreement in the political arena has to be decided, by first the High Court then the appeal court in the Constitutional Court.

00:03:08--> 00:03:21

And this happens all the time. In the past, it was once in a blue moon, that something goes to the Constitutional Court. Now everything has to go to the Constitutional Court, because of the mayhem. And the authoritarian nature of men.

00:03:23--> 00:03:56

Who have this film playing are dragged in front of us called state capture, but nothing is done about the names of the people, are they the clients that come with it, are they not a single person has been taken to any court or any tribunal or any judgment has been given against people and so the world is as we see it is. And if this wall should remain like this, then the world that we live for Gretchen Rubin, total chaos, where everybody will have to be a gardener used to in the old days to to defend yourself.

00:03:57--> 00:04:40

So I haven't spoken a little bit about politics or politics for a very long time. And today, I think there may be a need for us to reflect upon the state of the oma as we see it. Because there are many things that is happening in the world today. And we all see it on the television we read about it in the newspapers. And of course all of us are informed by the media. None of us have got reporters or personal reports in so we are informed by the media. So it is sometimes very difficult to distinguish between truth and Bothell it's very difficult and that depends where you get your information from and all information has a human bias in it in has a bias as to who the report is

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

working for.

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

So what I'm going to say today is my own opinion The way I see it, this is not the Sunnah, this is not the horror, this is my own viewpoint. You listen to it, you discuss it, you rejected you accept it, that's entirely up to you. Only if I quote the Quran and occur from this

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

Non parameters are London, of course I don't expect any disagreement about that. So the verse that I quoted about your hardware allows for another says minella MENA region for the former Army. Allows foreigner says, There are men and Allah use the term men, the original men. Allah says there are men, men are men in a region of the believers, me known the true believers that are men

00:05:30--> 00:05:36

Sakuma the lolly, they are true to the covenant which they have made with allows pagnotta

00:05:38--> 00:05:50

The truth of the covenant which they had made with a lot, what is that covenant that we've made with allows Pilate Allah, that covenant is the covenant of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah.

00:05:52--> 00:05:57

And when we accept that covenant, we also accept the protection of that covenant.

00:05:59--> 00:06:14

It is not just two sentences that we utter. If you are prepared to die for it, then what is the point? We're not prepared to defend that then what's the point? And remember, the two goes together if you deny any one of those two sentences, you're not Muslim.

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

A Muslim is one who says La ilaha illa Allah and Muhammad Rasulullah saw

00:06:21--> 00:06:38

a man only says La ilaha lightner Muslim men only says Muhammad Rasul is non Muslim. You have to say, I there is none worthy of worship except allows Primus Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is the Messenger of Allah was.

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

Of course today we live in a world where some people would like to remove some of this.

00:06:47--> 00:07:00

Some people would like to tell us that we should be more tolerant. We should believe that other people also have a god. And we have now come to the point where they've convinced us that they garden Our God is the same God.

00:07:03--> 00:07:16

That's the first step. So in this interfaith movement, that is what they believe. They believe that the God of the Jews, the Christians, the Bahais, the Buddhists, everybody's God is the same God.

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

And they removed from the equation.

00:07:21--> 00:07:44

Muhammad Rasulullah, because that is a question of debate. That is a question of you accepted, but I don't accept it. And Muslims have begun to accept the status quo. We have forgotten that. It was not for Muhammad. Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam rasulillah we would not have been people of La ilaha illa Allah,

00:07:45--> 00:07:46

that he is the

00:07:48--> 00:08:04

Beloved of allows Pilate Allah, and he is the standard in the practice of Islam. Now Allah Allah, Allah is the commandment. But what is the standard of practice? The standard of practice comes from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

So

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

allow Swan Allah says in the MENA region, sada Kuma de la la,

00:08:14--> 00:08:19

there are men, believing men and other women excluded

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

women excluded from jihad.

00:08:23--> 00:08:40

Although they will, they will women in the history of Islam who participated in jihad, who participated in the Battle of have participated in some of the other battles that was fought by Muslims. But the rule is that it is funneled upon men.

00:08:41--> 00:08:59

For me, no man Katana allows fatherlessness and those men who have been through to the covenant and you would have given their lives for the sake of a loss peloton, Mankato Nevada they passed away again give they they've done their duty to protect in this de

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

camino Mercado da da da da da da da da da da de la la sala says and there are men who are earnestly waiting for their turn to come.

00:09:11--> 00:09:30

There are men whose desire is to defend this Deen and to die in the path of a loss. And we know today that that is not the narrative that we hear from Muslim leaders and non Muslim leaders. The narrative that we hear today is there is no more jihad.

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

We should

00:09:34--> 00:09:44

negotiate this negotiate that should negotiate your Islamism negotiate your land that allows that is given to you if negotiate everything

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

no allows partner says there are those who are waiting

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

for me know mercadona

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

allows pharmacists and those men who are waiting to enter the field of the defense of this

00:10:01--> 00:10:16

They have not changed their mind at all, but De Luca de la, they are insistent upon the fact that when the time will come, they will stand up and they will defend this day, they will not compromise.

00:10:18--> 00:10:24

Today, we have compromised in nearly every facet of our deep, we compromised on Reba.

00:10:26--> 00:10:44

Reba that allows foreign law says he declares war on those who deal in Riba we've compromised, open up Islamic bank, bank, we do it this way. And we do it that way. And we do it this way. And we get a fatwa from that person. And that person says, It's okay in this person. And the fact of our laws following the law is that it is haram.

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

And we've compromised on so many other issues, let us not compromise

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

on the Dean of our laws,

00:10:54--> 00:11:15

yes, among Muslims, lots of compromises can take place. But when it comes to Islam versus others, then we should not have we are tolerant, we live together in harmony. But please don't ask us to compromise on the deen, which allows harm that is given to us. And then our last one that given Charlotte, we die on this.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

Because this life,

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

somebody sent me a clip of a man was giving a speech, what he had in his hand was a rope.

00:11:28--> 00:11:51

Very long rope, the rope, he was standing on the stage, the rope and die out at the end of the rope. And he was holding the rope. And sticking out from his end was a small red piece of the rope. Just a red piece, somebody painted this small piece of rain. And he was talking about this piece. And he says this little gap is a life of this world.

00:11:52--> 00:12:02

And then long rope is the light of the is the life of the author. The author is billions and billions and billions of years long. There is no end to the arrival, the

00:12:03--> 00:12:21

end, he wants to talk to us about this part, this is your life, this small little piece here that you're holding in your hand. And what do we do we sacrifice everything for this small piece of 70 years or 60 years or 80 years or whatever Allah Allah gives us for the 8 billion years that we must and live in the past.

00:12:22--> 00:12:42

And that is why I say that we should not for this short period that allows has given to us in this world, sacrifice the greatest gift which Allah has given to us, and that is the gift of Islam. And we need to recognize that, that our identity is the identity of, of Islam and Muslims. So if you look at the Gulf crisis,

00:12:44--> 00:12:47

which of course is is very central in the news today.

00:12:50--> 00:12:51

And

00:12:55--> 00:13:01

maybe we should just historically, talk a little bit about the way the Gulf crisis

00:13:03--> 00:13:20

originates from and I can't go into the obesity because as you can hear my my voice box has finally come to final stages. Because I spoken probably too much in over 40 years that I've been talking something has to give.

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

Alright, so Saudi Arabia, of course, as we know,

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

was a nation that sided with the British to remove the khilafah.

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

So they began

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

the Saudi regime removed the

00:13:41--> 00:13:54

true inheritors of the Holy Land, makan Medina, the Hashemite Kingdom. And they went in league with the British, they remove the Turks, and they destroyed the falafel. And they took over.

00:13:56--> 00:14:05

And maybe the circumstances demanded, but at the time, they introduced what is called the outset conservative attitude towards Islam.

00:14:07--> 00:14:12

And also entrenched the whole idea of kingship in Islam.

00:14:13--> 00:14:23

And also the whole idea of the transference of power of authority from father to son in the form of from the king to the Crown Prince. And so it goes on until the end of time.

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

And of course, what they added was and whatever

00:14:28--> 00:14:40

was there in the land or under the land, belong to the royal family exclusively, to the exclusion of any of the citizens of the country, which they will.

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

So it is not only an ultra conservative in terms of what we call the A Salafist attitude. Other words they believe that, like plenty of us, too, that the three first generations of Islam should be followed. But that doesn't mean that now after the first three generations of Islam

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

As many young people think today that Islam stop there

00:15:04--> 00:15:09

Islam never stopped Islam will never stopped it. Yes the base generation for the first three generations

00:15:10--> 00:15:27

but knowing the Quran also known as the prophets of Salaam Chara, so Allah and tell us that all Muslims that will be the first three generations after that if they must come to a standstill, no. Allow Swapna says in the Quran said no to him it nice to have you and to see him hasta la parte

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

Allah says I will show you in yourselves and in the universe.

00:15:32--> 00:15:36

So much of truth that you will realize that this Quran in this Deen is from allows.

00:15:38--> 00:15:44

So the exposure of knowledge will continue until the death

00:15:46--> 00:15:52

and the explanations and extrapolations and interpretations from the Quran based

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

on the progress of Man will continue until the death here.

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

But we know that the sooner Vanessa lamb is ended with ease death,

00:16:04--> 00:16:36

and the son of the Nagisa Salam informs us of their manner of worship. It doesn't tell us about it, it tells us how to worship Allah pinata. And that body of knowledge called the Sunnah has been handed down to us and has been interpreted for us by great minds within the three first generations and after the first the first regeneration, we would not have known the greatness of the sunan as it was, because the people remember Hari, Rama, hula

00:16:38--> 00:16:59

and many of them had the tsunami we know there are six of them basically, and many many others. So knowledge is incremental in Islam knowledge grows, we are not a static oma knowledge grows. me to grow with the knowledge the fundamentals will remain the same and will always try and go back to the pure Sunnah of the Nabi. sallallahu

00:17:00--> 00:17:03

alayhi salatu salam. So

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

we have now so that was the beginning of Saudi Arabia.

00:17:15--> 00:17:29

They are treated McCann Medina, since its inception as if it belonged to them. They still treat it as if it belongs to them. We are foreigners to that land. We are foreigners to a land that belongs to allows

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

the most sacred land that was given to this oma.

00:17:35--> 00:17:46

We talk about Palestine. The Arabs talk about Palestine, Arabs talk about declaring Jerusalem an international city.

00:17:48--> 00:18:03

Why can't we say the same about McCann, Medina, why don't we also fight for Mecca Medina to become international cities and not under the rule of some person who will decide today. You can come in tomorrow you can come and today you will pay so much Mario pay so much.

00:18:04--> 00:18:09

So these are all the issues that we have with Saudi Arabia.

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

They many other issues, they have 1000s of our mothers in jail

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

because of disagreements with the royal authority.

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

They have now

00:18:21--> 00:18:26

unleashed a war against probably the poorest nation on Earth.

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

A war which the promise will last for three weeks. This now lasted for two years,

00:18:33--> 00:18:40

a war which is so uneven. It's unbelievable that a nation of Muslims

00:18:42--> 00:18:49

who are in charge of the haramain, who do what they do to the Yemeni brothers, it's unimaginable

00:18:50--> 00:19:24

that they're doing this continuously on a daily basis. I mean, we I just read now that 250,000 people in Yemen has been recorded. They all suffer from diarrhea, no diarrhea whatsoever. cholera handwara. Now 1000 people have died of cholera and cholera is a waterborne disease. people drink water that is not clean and not pure. And the Saudis commonly dumped the bombs on these people's water wells and waterways and rivers. So heinola they kill children. In fact, the whole nation is starving to death.

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

This is what we're dealing with.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

On the other hand,

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

they welcome people like Modi,

00:19:38--> 00:19:58

Indian Prime Minister was in Riyadh not so long ago, who now for the first time in 69 years have also now gone to to Israel with not a single murmur from those people who say that they are the custodians of the holy places. I know you know all this. I just want to say it to you

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

To get from my chest.

00:20:03--> 00:20:08

And there are so many other things that we can do we can refer to. But let's look at the Gulf crisis.

00:20:12--> 00:20:21

And I'm not supporting either one. I think it's important that we deal that we look at this purely from a, from a from,

00:20:23--> 00:20:51

from an even handed point of view, that we look at this and we look at the facts. And we see for ourselves, how does this impact upon us? And I say to somebody, as I said, You know, I will today talk about this in my drama about Saudi Arabia and Qatar. I'll talk about the authoritarian nature and the ultra conservative nature of the regimes they and the fact that both Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE there is an electoral system, they all they are all what we call them.

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

It's a word for them.

00:20:57--> 00:21:07

dictators, the old dictators, the old self appointed, they own the land, they own the people, they own everything. They have one bank their bank,

00:21:08--> 00:21:12

that's it all the money goes into their bank. So this is

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

when

00:21:30--> 00:21:54

I hear what the brothers saying he says we should call him Arab armies desert Arabs. And Allah talks about the desert Arabs in the Quran olahraga Asha Luca for montefalco. Last regular season the Quran, the desert Arabs, no one almost calling the Arabs those Arabs who was speaking about their the worst enqueue for me, fuck, the worst in disbelief and the worst in the fog.

00:21:55--> 00:22:27

And maybe this verse doesn't apply to them directly, because I mean, they are not the word of Kufa. Of course, I'm not allowed to say that I mean, we're not to copy to prefer but that is the reference that allows and makes about, and there's a whole history behind that about the najis. And about what prophets are Sallam said about the Yemenis, the good, the good things he said about the Yemenis. And the bad things he said about the Nazis and so on, and so on. But we're not going to go into that. So this campaign

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

break now

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

this campaign

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

that Saudi Arabia is now waging

00:22:39--> 00:22:42

against Qatar, and the UAE,

00:22:43--> 00:22:57

and of course, Egypt as to just fall in love, because Egypt lives on the handouts of the UAE and Saudi Arabia, as it depends on the handouts of the Americans, so they're all there to serve the masters.

00:23:01--> 00:23:02

But you may know that

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

the whole of the UAE

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

if it was not for the guests of Qatar, they would have no electricity in the UAE.

00:23:16--> 00:23:19

And up to now, Qatar has not cut off the gas supply

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

to the UAE. If they did that,

00:23:24--> 00:23:29

people will actually die leeway because the temperatures they go up to 40 to 50 degrees.

00:23:30--> 00:23:38

And if they don't have electricity, they don't have a condition. They're not a condition and they'll die. So you can see that there's been some

00:23:41--> 00:23:48

some thoughts that Qatar has applied, despite the fact that it has been cut off by these nations.

00:23:49--> 00:23:53

So there are many things that one has to grapple with.

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

Al Jazeera, for example,

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

broadcast by two satellites, and upset Nilesat.

00:24:03--> 00:24:23

Both these satellites are owned by Saudi Arabia, UAE Saudi Arabia hasn't switched off Al Jazeera, they switch it off Yes, in Saudi Arabia and is switched off in the UAE and in Asia, but they haven't switched off completely liquid just turn the switch and switch it off, because they satellite. So one can almost sense that there is a greater purpose,

00:24:24--> 00:24:28

a greater aim rather than just to cut off kata.

00:24:30--> 00:24:35

And the great aim is today we live the geopolitical world,

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

the geography in which you live.

00:24:39--> 00:24:51

South Africa lives in a certain geographical area. Will we have a certain political outlook. And so Saudi Arabia lives in that part of the world in the Gulf, and it sees the Gulf as its sphere of influence.

00:24:53--> 00:24:58

And it recognizes the fact that Qatar because it's a very small country, it's about that size

00:25:00--> 00:25:24

Just the top part of my of this finger, it's about the sizes, and juts out into the into the Gulf. It's about that size. So in terms of size, it's nothing but in terms of its well, it is an extremely rocky state. And in terms of its resources and gas resources, and even oil resources, it is probably one of the richest states in the world with the highest per capita income, as we know. But what is the Saudis trying to do they and this

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

this

00:25:29--> 00:25:34

fight, as we may say, between Saudi Arabia and UAE and Qatar

00:25:36--> 00:25:42

has got nothing to do with aljazeera. It's some some it has a little bit to do with algebra.

00:25:43--> 00:25:51

And we heard that the foreign minister said it's got a lot to do with terrorism. But in fact, it has to do with

00:25:53--> 00:26:00

Saudi Arabia's domination of that part of the world, Saudi Arabia wants to dominate the whole of the Gulf,

00:26:02--> 00:26:05

not only in terms of his view of Islam,

00:26:07--> 00:26:21

which fortunately for for Qatar degrees, Qatar is a worthy status like Saudi Arabia, the Wallabies. So the two of them should actually not have that kind of it says that the lobbies say that Katara is a bit toned down.

00:26:22--> 00:26:58

There's not as strong in his outlook as done as ultra conservative as the Saudi state. But what Saudi Arabia wants it once Qatar to be exactly like Saudi Arabia, it should be, it should be like father like son. So you're the small boy, you must be like your dad would be like a father. But this is come a very long way. We know that for many, many years has been this tension. And the tension has not only been in the Gulf, it's also played itself out in other countries in Libya, for example, where from Libya and Syria, Libya, for example.

00:27:02--> 00:27:03

What is happening in Libya?

00:27:04--> 00:27:09

In Libya, we have Eastern Libya and Western Libya.

00:27:11--> 00:27:19

In Eastern Libya, there is a man called is a rogue, General of qaddafi, General haftar.

00:27:20--> 00:27:28

And haften is supported by the UAE, and, and Saudi Arabia, and Egypt.

00:27:29--> 00:27:51

And why the supporting this this general pay supporting this general because of the fact that this general agrees with the interpretation of political Islam, very important for us as Muslims to understand these terms. What is political Islam?

00:27:54--> 00:28:09

There are two views on political Islam. The one being political Islam is the Saudi view and the Saudi view, as he supported by an ex Dean of the Faculty of Sharia at Medina University.

00:28:11--> 00:28:26

So you might find that people who have studied and Medina University, who doesn't have a very open mind would maybe follow this line of argumentation. And the man who the Chef rabea Ahmed Ali, his name

00:28:27--> 00:28:57

and Shakira, br matale. His viewpoint is in his interpretation is that political Islam is an Islam, which does not allow the practice of politics by the people living in a particular area. That Muslim should accept the leadership which Allah has given to them, whether it's a tyrant with a king, Muslims do not have

00:28:58--> 00:29:10

the authority to overthrow rulers that oppress them to have to accept rulers or replacement. And that's what appeal machale had expanded this view

00:29:13--> 00:29:40

right around the Arab world. So Jen laughter subscribes to this view, because all all army generals will subscribe to a view like this. Because if they empower the empower seesee subscribes to this view, he's in power now. He's not gonna allow free and fair election in Egypt anymore. That's a end of the story. So Saudi Arabia will support him with everything that he has, that they have. So Jen laughter was in Benghazi was not taken over Benghazi.

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

He's on the one side and who's on the other side. Qatar supports the Brotherhood Islamic brotherhood also in Libya. So you can see that these things have been playing itself out outside of the Gulf. So Qatar has been supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, including Turkey has been supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and the Muslim Brotherhood. They put it

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

Islam is that the rulers of Muslims should pay should be a process by which Muslims, the rulers of Muslims are elected or selected by the people.

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

So this is the great divide.

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

And we know that

00:30:24--> 00:30:34

if we look at the world, if we look at, for example, the Middle East, we look at Syria. And you know, I don't have much time, so I can't go into a lot of detail. But if you look at the world, the Arab world

00:30:37--> 00:30:47

what is the great fight between the west and the east nowadays, the biggest fight that we have, everybody climbs on this bandwagon I don't believe them at all is that we must destroy ISIS.

00:30:50--> 00:31:09

America wants to destroy ISIS. Russia says we are inserted to destroy ISIS in Iraq to destroy ISIS. Saudi Arabia says they are out there to destroy ISIS can laughter says he wants to destroy ISIS. ECC says he wants to destroy ISIS. The world wants to destroy

00:31:13--> 00:31:14

Why?

00:31:15--> 00:31:25

They don't talk about the Taliban like that. Nobody wants to destroy the Taliban. The Taliban is doing more or less the same things as ISIS is doing in that part of the world. They are living in a van Insta

00:31:26--> 00:32:02

car bombs, this kind of bomb people getting killed by the hundreds giving name, oppression of women, etc, etc, etc. The whole litany of from whichever side you look at it, the crimes are the same, yet the one part is left alone. And the other part is targeted. I'm not gonna say which part is right or which part is wrong, I'm informed by the same media that informs you. But what I can say, my take on it is that the the biggest mistake that ISIS made was is to establish the khilafah.

00:32:05--> 00:32:15

The biggest mistake ISIS made was that they said we're a philosopher driven group of people. We want to reestablish the philosophy of Muslims and Islam.

00:32:17--> 00:32:21

We want to have allegiance to a leader who has allegiance of Islam.

00:32:22--> 00:32:27

And we believe that the road to the establishment of Islamic Jihad.

00:32:30--> 00:32:40

So this is a scare for the, for the West, when one would think why see and what is American Trump and all these people, they're all up in arms against

00:32:41--> 00:32:51

these cool small group of people that got me more than maybe 10,000 or 20,000. People ISIS, yet they bomb them from the a and from the sea, and from everywhere.

00:32:52--> 00:32:54

For for purpose.

00:32:56--> 00:33:04

So because they know that the strongest time of Islam, in its 14 centuries was when he died.

00:33:06--> 00:33:06

When he died

00:33:08--> 00:33:18

in the last time we did the Khalifa, which ended not so long ago. And the width is very aware of this. the caliber of Islam was not 1000 years ago, it was in 19 2014.

00:33:20--> 00:33:22

That's not so long, though not 100 years yet.

00:33:24--> 00:33:26

And 100 yesterday is a very short period of time.

00:33:27--> 00:33:39

So the wave knows that Muslims should regain that power is the head and was that lost, they would be in trouble. And so Trump one of the first things he says now when he was in places,

00:33:41--> 00:33:51

he made a speech in which country in Europe, in Poland. And he went out of his normal what he was saying when he was saying that there is a great threat to Western civilization.

00:33:53--> 00:34:06

He didn't you say that it was really stupid. I know. It's silly. But that's what must have come from one of these advisors. And of course, the greatest threat to Western civilization is what is called Islam.

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

It was called the the justice of Islam.

00:34:11--> 00:34:59

The fact that Islam is a a divided ledger. So the the fight in the Middle East between Qatar and the UAE and Saudi Arabia. And of course we know that both UAE and Saudi Arabia, they set it on the same table one is super ultra conservative, and Dubai and Abu Dhabi super non ultra conservative, but they can accept that they will accept that because they have the same objective to establish in the Gulf. All the all the monarchies and the dictators in the Gulf must have the same attitude towards and they saying that Carter is going the other way. Father is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and they they have zerah all these these facilities in order for them to be able to bring about Islam.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Change in sha Allah.

00:35:03--> 00:35:04

Now

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

this embargo

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

wants to do two things.

00:35:18--> 00:35:24

What goes to the heart of this embargo against Qatar is two things, the definition of terrorists

00:35:26--> 00:35:31

and the definition of the extent of the sovereign entity of a sovereign state.

00:35:33--> 00:35:58

And this is going all over the world with North Korea sovereign entity with a the South Korea sovereign entity, whether it is whoever, in other words Kashmiri sovereignity, whether it's peristalsis of an entity, it's about the struggle for self identity. How much can we do as a state? or How can people deprive us of being a state Kashmir has been deprived from being a state parasite has been deprived from being a state?

00:35:59--> 00:36:04

And they would love to deprive Qatar also from being an independent state?

00:36:05--> 00:36:36

The second thing is, how do we define terrorists? What is the terrorists and the Saudi wants to add a new definition to terrorism. And that definition is a terrorist is somebody who wants to have democratic elections in their countries, they are terrorists, people and the Arab Spring brought this to light. The people who are against the Arab Spring was UAE, in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Saudi Arabia supported all the oppressive governments

00:36:37--> 00:36:59

killing their people, they supported Sisi, they support Libya, they support all the other countries in order to retain the control of a few people of the majority of the people. And unfortunately for Qatar, I support the Muslim Brotherhood in in Egypt. And also, of course, Turkey supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. So the Arab Spring

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

kicked us into higher gay war is a terrorist. So this is what Saudi Arabia and the UAE This is a concerted campaign that seeks to achieve these two things, that in the Muslim world, a terrorist is somebody who wants to overthrow the existing government.

00:37:20--> 00:37:24

So the exporting this ideology to Indonesia, to Malaysia,

00:37:26--> 00:37:27

to Pakistan,

00:37:29--> 00:37:31

and they do this via the RAF.

00:37:34--> 00:37:39

And they do this in Djibouti, many countries in the world they do.

00:37:45--> 00:38:02

defeat of Tata Amina Saudi Arabia as a new Crown Prince 50 year old, who started the war in Yemen, who called finished the war in Yemen. And who doesn't want to see us be seen as a failure, and they capable of doing various things.

00:38:03--> 00:38:11

And probably one of the one of the things that he may want to try, and I think part of the strategy was that we were just finished militarily.

00:38:13--> 00:38:32

And the reason they thought this was because Trump was there now, and Tom was giving them all the support about, you know, we support you, we support all the Sunni monarchies, and you must do your word for terrorism, and so forth and so on. But they didn't take into account the support that Iran. And I don't agree with the Iranian

00:38:33--> 00:38:37

interpretation of Islam, but I do agree with them in the anti,

00:38:38--> 00:38:54

anti Israeli standard and many of the other stances they take. So Iran has come out in very strong support, and also Turkey has come out in very strong support. So I think a military endeavor, military exercise against Qatar is not going to come about

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

if Qatar loses

00:38:58--> 00:39:24

this war of nerves of whatever you want to call it, this, Qatar can withstand this embargo. It will mean that the Saudis will continue its advocacy of also conservatism number two, it will strengthen its it's propaganda machine for materialism, in strengthening the autocratic regimes all over the world, not only in the Muslim world.

00:39:25--> 00:39:29

And of course, they will make a mockery of basic human rights and human rights, Islamic rights.

00:39:32--> 00:39:42

We know that one of the basic rights of a Muslim is that he must be given a chance in a court of law to prove his innocence.

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

In Islamic law in Islamic criminal law, there is no such thing as locking somebody up without a trial. no such a thing. One day a man came to Mr. Malhotra de la Tron and he came in he had his high in his hand

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

Tell the story before you say to Omar see what this man has done to me is taken out my I see the edges. There you see the hole there is my in my head says I want you now to give a verdict on this man give a verdict on the punishment for this panel. What is done Thomasina

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

icon icon

00:40:20--> 00:40:29

is not Islam, sometimes a Muslim person the other person, it must be an open court, there must be a judge. icon icon within the we have judges who do this.

00:40:30--> 00:41:00

Bring me the men who took out. And when they brought the man he attacked both in man's eyes out there we're fighting to both the band's eyes out. But he wanted to be the first to report the incident. So even there's a lot of synonyms. When aka you did more damage to this man that's mandatory. So this equality of all in front of the law is in Islamic and Quranic injunction and a practice of Mohammed, Salah Mahajan, Salah,

00:41:02--> 00:41:16

the last thing he wants to affirm and confirm which they're doing all the time is to confirm and affirm their moral authority, that they arise from the being the custodians of the two holy places.

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

And many people say this to me, many people say that then the leaders of the Muslim world because of Makkah and Medina, and who appointed them, the scholars from the point of view of the leaders of the Muslim world, how can they ever be our leaders? Will the things that they do, I don't have a leader who killed his brother Muslim in the neighboring town, murders that massacres the men, women and children

00:41:42--> 00:41:54

and everything else? How can we say that they use the leaders of the Muslim world, there is a by by chance, and by force, their day to day where they are today. Nobody put their name, nobody appointed them they

00:41:55--> 00:42:24

against the rule, every single rule that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came with. So we have this anomaly then, that we have people who look after the haramain, who are in this particular situation, and treating a fellow brother who sits on the same council the GCP. And put in complete embargo of food named Nelson, there is something which is undefinable amongst really something which is you know, you can't

00:42:26--> 00:42:40

it's almost impossible to believe that they could do this in front of the whole world, this plays out in front of the whole world. So we have less and less credibility as far as the world is concerned. And let's to fix our faith, let's fix our religion.

00:42:42--> 00:43:18

And similarly, at home, we have the same situation that we live in. And the people were totally autocratic, who say they control the Muslims. The same like the Saudis say they control the world of Islam. We have the same people in Cape Town in Durban in Johannesburg, in the heart of the country. We have big beards and big films, and they have imposed themselves upon this old man said we are leaders. From where from what from haha yes, you can be the older man, you can lead us in salon, you can teach us the need to come to my leader, have the right to choose my leader.

00:43:19--> 00:43:22

I've arrived for you to stand up. And so

00:43:23--> 00:43:30

when we look at that situation, and we look at the situation of the Muslims all over the world, in particular situation, Muslims here in our country.

00:43:32--> 00:44:08

And so when people talk to me about people become leave leaving Islam, for example, people talk about young people not being interested in Islam. They people talk about these things. it emanates, like, like in Egypt. it emanates from the top and it comes down. And people lose faith, because of the fact that we have this kind of thing that is happening here. We have two radio stations when it's controlled by the one sector is controlled by another thing. And we're supposed to live in a democracy. If they don't like you, you can't be on that radio station. The other thing is data center like you can't be on that data station. This is the kind of this plays itself out

00:44:08--> 00:44:31

internationally amongst Muslims. But if we can't even get a try thing 2 million Muslims living in a so called one of the best constitutional democracies in the world. We are so weak as an oma that we can't even change that condition and allows one of them this is in the La La era, the mob economy, Hatha Yoga guru Murthy unfussy him, Allah will not change your condition until you change the condition yourself.

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

So we have mechanics who say Oh, leave them a fine piece you know, this is now even though my exactly what they said is is that what the Saudis say? Keep the people exactly keeps you see there now even if it locks up all the people in the sentence so many hundreds of people today. He's not absorbed me under two people. So what is how does a good man keep him in his friend of his love? No problem. You know

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

Hamas, no problem. All the people that we love, right?

00:45:05--> 00:45:06

How is this?

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

People who fight for Islam? How is it?

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

So

00:45:15--> 00:45:28

the long and short of the situation amongst Muslims not only in the Middle East, amongst Muslim slaughter world that don't have good guys and bad guys, the last good crowd died was

00:45:30--> 00:45:44

King Faisal, for me, in the modern world, he was the last one who put up his hand and said no to the Americans, the last one absolute last. But it means they can be people who say that to them and say, no,

00:45:45--> 00:45:52

we're not going to do this, with your America with your bread with England, wherever you may be, we're not going to do this, we're not going to accept

00:45:54--> 00:45:55

a status

00:45:57--> 00:46:12

as Muslims, unless it is based on the Quran and Sunnah. And we're not going to accept status as human beings. Unless and until it is done with my consent to was not done with my consent, then I want nothing to do with it. So

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

my.

00:46:20--> 00:46:21

And the Muslim Brotherhood, of course,

00:46:23--> 00:46:31

being an organization that's been there for an extremely long time, it's more it was more of a social welfare organization and political organization.

00:46:32--> 00:46:44

And it became a political organization, because people developed faith in that particular organization to deliver the kind of services which they needed from the government, which you're not getting from the government.

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

And so they became the government eventually.

00:46:50--> 00:47:03

And one can now see when you look at the politics of the Middle East, the Muslim Brotherhood did not lose their status as the government of Egypt because of the Egyptian people.

00:47:04--> 00:47:30

It is because and we say it was the Americans in the desert, we now see who the real culprits were. We now see that into Saudi Arabia, and the UAE was supporting the opposition to a Muslim government. That was the that was the push, the push was and the decision was, we cannot support a democratically elected Muslim government in the Middle East. That example we're not going to allow.

00:47:32--> 00:47:46

And so we're not going to allow a station like Al Jazeera, which movie talks about everything that happens in the world, we cannot allow that. We must not allow that. And we now have Donald Trump to stand behind us, to help us not to allow that.

00:47:47--> 00:47:51

So we are caught really, as Muslims

00:47:52--> 00:47:54

in between

00:47:55--> 00:47:58

our faith and belief in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:47:59--> 00:48:09

Not here, but throughout the world, and our commitment to giving the people that live in our countries a better life.

00:48:10--> 00:48:11

So

00:48:14--> 00:48:17

the most important idea I think I want to face today

00:48:18--> 00:48:23

is that the best times of this Omar was in the times when he died when he read

00:48:24--> 00:48:27

a Khalifa. And it started with Abu Bakar.

00:48:28--> 00:49:03

And with right up to the 13th century, that is went right up to 1924 longer than 13 said Islamic century 1924. And we had ruled and if you read the history of the world, you will see how that philosophy impacted on everything that was happening in the world. And that is the fear of the West. And they know that true Muslims are committed to this idea, although they try in every possible way using any kind of media outlet

00:49:04--> 00:49:09

to impress upon us and to convince us that they democracy is the best fast

00:49:10--> 00:49:21

that the way they run the country the best first and then the worst of example, look at America is the worst example of a democracy ever in the history of democracy.

00:49:22--> 00:49:29

But yet, that bad example they they cover it up. And they tell us we the worst example.

00:49:30--> 00:49:40

So panela and yet we follow that by example, a great country like casadevall Arabia could be a good could be a great country that can easily record the blessings and

00:49:41--> 00:49:58

promises of them was born as a whacking down. But the people was done with it, what they've done with it. So we pray today that a loss handler should should guide the Muslims alarmist must give the Mujahideen because without Mujahideen, the battle is lost

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

without too much

00:50:00--> 00:50:25

died in the battle is lost who's going to who's going to stand up? Without which I mean, people are going to do exactly what they want to do. It is the Mujahideen in Saudi Arabia, in Qatar, in the UAE, in Iraq, in Iran, in Syria, in Turkey, in in the North Africa, wherever they are. It is these people that is keeping the flame of the hope of justice alive for the majority of people in the world.

00:50:26--> 00:50:36

The majority of people look at the majority and say, This is our Savior. These people are not here to handle a manual that have happened to the world.

00:50:37--> 00:50:53

Imagine what would have happened to the world. Imagine they want our Mujahideen in Syria wouldn't have happened. Already they suffering Muslims are suffering so badly they might know if the Hamas is the majority or not the in in, in, in, in Russia.

00:50:55--> 00:51:15

The only thing that is our fears is no small that small group of atheists in Hamas in Gaza that's all if you lie, because they prepare to stand up they prepared to give their lives they prepared to fight for what they what they believe in. And so that big is what all his nuclear weapons feared this

00:51:16--> 00:51:19

whole group of people that they've got total control of

00:51:20--> 00:51:35

so Pinilla so we can see the power of Islam, we can see the power of being Muslim, we can see the power of our laws found that international law the answer to most amateur academic, Allah says if you help Allah to establish the deen Allah will help you

00:51:36--> 00:51:40

submit APA and you will make firm your feet in this two brothers and sisters.

00:51:43--> 00:51:58

This is not new to you. This is your Islam and Islam. This is your deed in mind. This is so know your profit and my profit. I'm not saying something which I'm not supposed to say. I'm not saying something which is anti so now provera not in the Quran. Oh

00:52:00--> 00:52:34

the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a major hit. So when we talk about sadhana we talk about finding the sun number homosassa concept only follow Salah that's why we do it in the magic carpet that's fine for us. We fall through the month but when it comes to the difficult stuff being just no we don't want to do fighting when the cause of Allah no we don't do that with our legions to is our legions. How leaders should be this should be Mohamed Salah, Salah, semi Allah guide us and keep us strong. Last one inshallah that we regain,

00:52:35--> 00:53:18

that we regain, not for ourselves, not for glory for ourselves, but in order to establish justice in the world. To world needs, adjust a society that is just an example for the world that allows them to give that we and we are the only people who will give that to the world with the only people who will give an example of what adjust society must be like a society with an absence of Riba respectful women, whether it's food for everybody, who everybody says who everybody can practice their faith will they be Jew Krishna whatever they may be, that is the kind of society which Mohammed Salim established in Medina and that is the kind of society only Islam can establish. A lot

00:53:18--> 00:53:19

Allah Allah Solomonic Monica
