subhanaw taala Ravi,

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

I'm sure that

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

Mona yacine has spoken to you about the Hajj.

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

But I felt it would be remiss of me not also to speak about the Hydra Hydra as many dimensions as you may know.

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

And these are halcyon days These are

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

great days in the in the Islamic calendar.

00:01:24--> 00:01:38

And of course, the greatest part of the 10 days of the hijab is of course the Hajj and celebration of Hajj and the pinnacle of that of course is the standing on Mount arafah

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

and glorifying allows putana

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

now worship in Islam has is multi dimensional, as many dimensions many paths

00:01:51--> 00:01:59

and so does worship in Islam have many many paths if we look for example if we take the daily Salah everyday Salah

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

everyday Salah five times in emergencies enabled event happens in the neighborhood, those people who study at the masjid to hear the other they come to the message and they meet every day Mashallah for fudger murasa nahi Masha the Freitas Salah is a weekly gathering we gather those may be broader than the neighborhood. Maybe the community now meets on a Friday. And also the Friday is not only a prayer but also has a football. It has a talk, it inspires us It teaches us It guides us confirmed and affirmed our faith and allows partner dialogue and inspires us to carry on being good people, good human beings and good Muslims in sha Allah until the next Friday, and then it comes along

00:02:42--> 00:02:57

and the entire city celebrates Thai city now comes together and celebrates. Then finally the annual worldwide gathering of all Muslims of the entire lava masala meet at the most sacred place called Makkah and they they need

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

to celebrate the greatness of Islam

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

to share the glory of Islam to reaffirm the oneness of the Omar Mohamed Salah Salah no matter where they come from. Well I've been financeable Hajj to carry gel and Wallah colada marine 18 m Khalifa genomic Allah say, W Rahim. Allah Allah to salam, as in financeable

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

proclaim the Hajj to mankind,

00:03:29--> 00:03:43

to carry gel and they will come to you on every lien and on every kind of transport play airplane donkeys, motor cars, buses, ships, there are common every kind of mode of transport, to do what

00:03:45--> 00:04:16

the shadow manaphy Allah, Allah says, in order for them to witness the benefits, both are aware that they will get into alpha and we know what the benefit is in the alpha is Gemini. It's an executive hatch, Allah forgives all your sins and dunia weigh the benefits the worldly benefits of meeting your brother Muslim, of trading, and so many things. So many benefits are lost partners put for us in the hands.

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

Now the role of the hedge

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

can be contained

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

to the role of the heart

00:04:29--> 00:04:38

and the liver in the human body. And what is the function of the heart in the liver in the human body. The heart sucks in the blood

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

or the tired blood or the US blood

00:04:44--> 00:04:47

and it goes to the liver and the liver filters the blood

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

rejuvenate rejuvenates the blood and sends it back to all parts of the body.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Similarly, the hedge assembles all the oma from all the four corners.

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

The world, maybe the 10 corners of the world, rejuvenates the faith, give them renewed spiritual energy

00:05:09--> 00:05:18

makes them committed to Islam, and then simply sends that back into their communities to spread the blessings of Hajj far and wide.

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

The hatch essentially

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

has been legislated by allows mahanoy tala.

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

For two reasons.

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

There are two themes of the Hajj.

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

Two important lessons to learn from hunch

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

not only for those who are going for Hajj

00:05:50--> 00:05:58

but for every single Muslim. First is that the hedge gives us the most powerful message of tawheed

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

how

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

what is the battle crap hedge? What do we say when we go and hedge?

00:06:08--> 00:06:32

What do we learn to recite on hedge lab make Allahumma make lobby Baker luxury color color bake in Hamden, we're now Mata laka well milk luxury color, what do we establish in the firm when you go for Hajj lumbago Allah, Allah I am present in your arm in your presence alone malabrigo alive in your places.

00:06:33--> 00:06:38

Lab bakerella Sherry Kala Kala bake are alive in your presence.

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

There is none but the

00:06:44--> 00:06:49

luxury Kala Kala pig. So the first thing we establish our loss handler is

00:06:50--> 00:06:54

that algo dia our worship is none but follows putana

00:06:59--> 00:07:15

so that is the battle cry of Hajj, to affirm and reaffirm our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala in matters of worship, when it comes to anybody, we only have a relationship with Allah with nobody else.

00:07:18--> 00:07:28

And I'll talk about this later on again. The second important message of Hajj is that it reminds us of Kira the simple

00:07:29--> 00:07:45

hajis like fast forwarding to Accra, you fast forward. You have your clothes on that you die in the two pieces of white cloth that is going to be a if you die, they bury you in it. They don't put you in three pieces of cloth they just wrap you in those two pieces of cloth and they bury you

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

so in your dead clothes in your death shroud in your coffin.

00:07:52--> 00:08:11

You send an RFI in front of allows for how they're begging unless forgiveness it will be the same on the day of are on the death can you also meet with a law was handled so it's fast forwarding to the time when we're going to meet Allah subhanaw taala and surely, my dear brothers and sisters we will meet allows

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

the emphasis on tawheed

00:08:19--> 00:08:46

and the emphasis on ashira is found in the Quran in surah two Hajj selectel. Hajj is the 22nd suit of the Quran. Your homework today is to go back consist of about 60 verses 67 verses go home today and read Surah toolhead has some wonderful qualities which many others who are of the Quran do not have First of all,

00:08:47--> 00:08:54

it is the only surah in the Quran. That is name of the rune of the Arcana of Islam.

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

No, we don't have to reduce

00:08:58--> 00:09:29

or sudra to Salah or surah to the man. No, there's only surah to hedge of the five funds or the five argon allows for handleless chosen like Allah chose Surah Maryam only one woman only one suit of the coronation after the Lady Maria so very special lady obviously. So is Hydras be a very special record. That Hajj is focused on their love by calling a whole surah in the Quran, attach

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

Suunto Hajj also contains what many others who are do not contain. First of all it contains revelation that was given to the prophet in Makkah, including revelation given in Medina, including the revelation which came to him during the night, including revelation which came to him during the day, including revelation which came to him and he was resident in Medina, including revelation which came to travel so Sula to the house.

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

embraces all the different kinds of Revelation.

00:10:05--> 00:10:11

As if Hajj encapsulates and contains everything of Islam and we know it does contain everything Islam.

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

So this is the essence of Surah Al Hajj

00:10:20--> 00:10:31

and allows Muhammad Allah begins the surah not by mentioning Hajj. lasagna says Mr. Norman Rahim. You're not suited to come.

00:10:33--> 00:10:44

In as a zealot, Assa. shonali allows handler says, remind ourselves, all mankind, be dutiful to Allah. Fear Allah.

00:10:46--> 00:10:53

Be obedient to Allah. Verily, the earthquake, which will come on the last hour

00:10:56--> 00:11:09

will be a terrible earthquake. And we know earthquakes are terrible. We see on the TV the results of earthquakes. Allah reminds us of the day of the Day of Judgment, inserted hatch. So it begins

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

by Allah subhanaw taala, telling us and reminding us of the last hour.

00:11:17--> 00:11:22

Secondly, Senator Hatch speaks about jihad. It speaks about worship.

00:11:24--> 00:11:44

And it emphasizes sujood ritual to huttunen government, do yourself a favor, please read it. This is the last 10 days. Or rather, the first thing is of the hijab, very, very great days. Indeed. The best days of the whole 12 months of the Islamic calendar, including Ramadan

00:11:48--> 00:11:55

is the first 10 days of the ledger greater than the 10 days over the last 10 days of Ramadan.

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

Yes,

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

but it's not the same.

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

We talk about the last 10 nights of Ramadan

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

including the night of legato

00:12:10--> 00:12:15

Allah speaks about laylatul but now VSA speaks about

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

the days

00:12:20--> 00:12:28

so it is the take days the whole day. Therefore it is great insignificance of all I'ma say then the last 10 days of Ramadan

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

allows I'm going to speak about what is on the table

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

and shoretel Hajj, Allah says Alam Tara and Allah He has jeu de la homomorphism rT

00:12:42--> 00:12:59

Memphis Samoa Allah says do you not see that everything in the heavens and the earth makes you do to Allah and if you go and read this verse, it tells you it it tells you what are those things which makes you the mountain the sea the rivers

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

everything makes you do to allows pinata everything makes you do to to Allah Husqvarna.

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

That is why it's so disheartening,

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

disheartening

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

and

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

disappointing.

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

When you hear people say that

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

if you make two Jews on a grave there's nothing wrong with it.

00:13:31--> 00:13:32

They will say that

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

a man once came to me a man one day came to me and he said to me what

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

what's wrong with making shoot on the grave?

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

And he insisted that there are two opinions about it.

00:13:47--> 00:14:05

Like that was his old delille that was he's proof is proof was that but there's two opinions on a trusted which opinion pinion of online shaytaan to penis, two opinions. One opinions opinion of Allah is a revelation from Allah. Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah.

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

Allah, Allah says, Do you receive everything in the heavens and earth makes you do

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:17--> 00:14:23

so Allah speaks about sujood and their whole life of this oma is between two salutes.

00:14:25--> 00:14:31

Tao life of this Omar Mohamed Salah. The history of Islam started from once you do

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

how many students are there in the Quran?

00:14:35--> 00:14:36

How many?

00:14:37--> 00:14:45

If I look at you, then you look away. Imagine you asked me a question I look away how many how many times you've executed in the Quran?

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Ah Some say 15. But you correct 14 is the is the answer. So there are 14 places in the Quran where if you that way

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

recited, the institute must be made at that point in time.

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

The first sajida that was revealed by a loss of 100 is found in

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

the Quran. Allah, Allah Allah.

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

Allah in that verse in the last part of

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

Cana, Karla law tutor who was

00:15:24--> 00:15:32

allowed to our addresses only Mohammed Rasul Allah says to him, oh Mohamed, Salah, Salah.

00:15:33--> 00:15:40

Can La La to Tahoe, oh Mohammed Shah Salam Do not be obedient and listen to Abu Jamal

00:15:42--> 00:15:50

don't ignore whatever he says, says this about you and he says that about you and he says this about you just ignore it.

00:15:52--> 00:15:56

And what must you replace that worth? was good.

00:15:57--> 00:16:15

Make sure you seek your spiritual sustenance. In sudduth or Muhammad you alone, this is singular was a singular you should make sure you walk corrib and through sudduth you will come close to a loss

00:16:16--> 00:16:29

to nothing else, nothing else. Why is it nothing else? Because Allah says Allah says that you are closest to me within sujood if you are the bigger if you go on to get close to me, make sure you

00:16:30--> 00:16:37

make sure to fimasartan the law in the house of Allah subhanaw taala the best place to execute is in the house of Allah.

00:16:40--> 00:16:45

So that was the first sajida revealed to Muhammad Allah and the last century

00:16:47--> 00:17:08

was revealed to the Nabi sallallahu wasallam in Surah Al Hajj in the surah which we are busy looking at last Saturday is found in sort of Hydra allows handler says in the 22nd verse of the surah Yeah, you are Latina man or Carol was doodoo Abu Dora Baku, warfarin Hydra la la.

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

to film

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

this is allowed so the first algae that was

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

in the cave in Hara

00:17:19--> 00:17:26

Hara in the cave, that sajida was directed at one man alone, Mohamed Salah La Jolla.

00:17:28--> 00:17:43

Between that and 23 years later, Allah revealed the La sajida General hagibis tells us yeah you and levena Amano oh you people with EMA and make ruku and make sure you

00:17:44--> 00:18:21

what Abu Dora Baku and worship your Lord, what can I do good luck to you. So that you may be successful, so that you may be successful, so soon after Hajj or hatch as a very central place in the history of Islam, not only in our spiritual history, but in the history of Islam. So the first one was given to Mohammed and the last one was given to the Omar Mohammed Salah. So it closes from Humberto Salaam to the Obamas and what is it that Allah wants from us? sujood

00:18:22--> 00:18:24

and what was it that turned

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

as as in

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

in the agenda into shaytaan?

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

absence and rejection of sujood

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

so what is the most important

00:18:42--> 00:18:53

fan or act of a Muslim suit? And for recovering that Muslim would care for a fella. Now visa Salam said the difference between a Muslim and a caffine sujood salam

00:18:55--> 00:18:59

o Oh hello Mario has a violin Abdo piano so now

00:19:00--> 00:19:04

the first thing I would ask him Deaf pm will be about your Salah

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

and what is the best seller

00:19:09--> 00:19:13

of all the salons said as we would fall on a Muslim what is the best seller

00:19:15--> 00:19:15

I've

00:19:17--> 00:19:27

had eaten Elisa which is the best seller is a seller of the morning of Jumeirah made in German in domestic

00:19:29--> 00:19:33

greater than Juma Salah great greater than any Salah is that Salah

00:19:40--> 00:19:42

when honorable hottub

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

La Jolla Milan

00:19:47--> 00:19:53

was martyred in the you know the story was in the makeup of budget and a man came he was a Persian

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

fire worshiper instead of normal with a knife

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

See normal fell in lost consciousness. They carried him to his house

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

and they tried to wake him up.

00:20:15--> 00:20:16

They couldn't wake him up.

00:20:17--> 00:20:22

You know it somebody stabbed, he's bleeding. First thing you try to do is try to keep the person awake

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

because normal was dying, but they really tried to wake him up to find out you know,

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

but what they should do

00:20:31--> 00:20:36

and they couldn't. And I think it was aborted and correct me if I'm wrong. Said

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

whenever I was with honorable lon

00:20:43--> 00:21:02

no matter what situation we were in, if the time for Salah came I always used to remind him about cirrhosis a mini time for Salah is coming. Even if he was sleeping, I should say to him without working all the time of saliva and he would wake up. So stand aside. I will look him up and he said all the

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

time for saliva

00:21:07--> 00:21:11

panel the effect of salah and the first thing he said Norma Ross was

00:21:13--> 00:21:23

has the Muslims made the final Salah. First question you asked. He wasn't concerned about himself. He wasn't concerned about who stabbed him. He wasn't concerned about

00:21:24--> 00:21:26

seediness, our measurements.

00:21:27--> 00:21:35

First question was my wife is not important but the life of the omaze in both the spiritual life of the oma is very important.

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

So the Hajj then,

00:21:41--> 00:21:46

revitalizes should revitalize the community revitalize our collective energy.

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

We should benefit from the hedge but what do we have today?

00:21:52--> 00:21:54

What do we talk about when we talk about hedge?

00:21:55--> 00:21:59

What do we talk about? We talk about first thing we talk about is the visa

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

What do you have to do you have to

00:22:07--> 00:22:19

you have to get you need to become accredited. The first thing we talk about, that's half an hour conversation. They will talk about the yields and the rungs of the hedge committees and this committee and that committee

00:22:20--> 00:22:26

then we talk about the Saudis are bad they are now crazy. They are the Wahhabis. You're all crazy people

00:22:27--> 00:22:39

in the Salafism use all kinds of names. Then for the next half an hour we talk about how much is how much you paying for bedrooms two bedrooms two beds one bed

00:22:43--> 00:22:46

and when you come back you go and visit people same story

00:22:50--> 00:23:02

with us the plot twist we just lost it today we just accumulate money get accredited go for Hajj come back and you look at the man is the same person same person when he came back no difference

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

so what is it what is this is it shouldn't be a baby I should just take the man given a charity allows I'm going to make give me more reward than this fling that we take it's a fling you know it's a journey I've got the money I've got the accreditation and I just go there to this place make tawaf come back riding the train to refer to myself Amina eat the best food sleeping the best beds

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

so what what are we fooling

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

What is this what

00:23:30--> 00:23:32

is this a hedge this one

00:23:34--> 00:23:37

since the hatch will have already destroyed it halfway

00:23:39--> 00:23:56

terrible lobbies well they do a lot of good also in the war I must say I mean they give a lot of charity and but when it comes to mark and Medina they've done a terrible job they've destroyed most of this scenic elements of the city the the heart the spirit

00:23:57--> 00:24:14

of Islam has got its architecture it's got its spirit and that's why our messages are built in a particular way. We have minara to have members of mirrors where our artistic qualities that comes forth in the beautiful mosque we have all over the world and this has all been destroyed

00:24:16--> 00:24:22

it is that place Makkah and Medina we we should feel

00:24:23--> 00:24:38

as an Omar Mohamed Salah we should feel as part of one great nation you look at all the different phases black and white, blue eyes short and long and you think Marshall I'm but you don't think

00:24:39--> 00:24:50

we're not made to think like that. Why not? Because when you learn to juggle the first thing they say to you where do you come from? which path would you carry? Oh, you're a South Africans Africans May.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

So immediately when you land and you are told you are not part of an oma, you are a South African

00:25:03--> 00:25:12

Anybody wants to mobilize or make some awareness program in Mecca, Medina is brutally suppressed. Sometimes you can lose your life they kill you.

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

So they've changed the landscape. They've changed the purpose of Hajj they've separated

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

from each other, and from our history

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

because

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

I go there because I have to go.

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

You don't have to do

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

if that's the way to go.

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

What's the point

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

becomes the just the ritual, just a journey

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

with the spiritual side with the objective.

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

Let us remind ourselves

00:25:52--> 00:25:56

of the place of hygiene the history of Islam will fit into

00:26:01--> 00:26:08

Hajj, my dear brothers and sisters is associated with a major turning points in the life of this woman.

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

In the lemon tea of prophethood

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

the people of Medina came

00:26:19--> 00:26:22

to pledge their allegiance to the Navy some Lawson.

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

Lemon Thea to time of Hajj. Was it mean a

00:26:28--> 00:26:36

few people came from Medina and said, We believe that you are a prophet we pledge allegiance because it came Muslim they went back.

00:26:39--> 00:26:48

Two years later, another larger group came again to me again to pledge their allegiance to me so so now they were more

00:26:49--> 00:26:58

Muslims. And that was the beginning of the establishment of a Islamic State in Medina.

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

That was the impulse

00:27:03--> 00:27:17

given to the Nagisa salam to make hegira from actually the turning point. As was a thin point and in the second layer to buy a bottle aka a soda and Cobra.

00:27:18--> 00:27:26

At the Second World lasagna at the second Bayer chicken pledge, they will women also in the group.

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

Women came with a man from MK from Medina to Makkah to pledge

00:27:33--> 00:27:44

their commitment to defend the deen of Allah was one of these women and M was Amara on ama on Osama bin minicamp.

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

What a lady, what ad

00:27:52--> 00:27:52

what a woman.

00:27:55--> 00:27:57

She took part in the Battle of

00:27:59--> 00:28:10

NSA, she took part in the battle battle for how you may think was probably a little nervous standing on the edges of the battlefield, and pulling the Sahaba one side behind the little rock and washing up.

00:28:12--> 00:28:19

On Amala, she and her husband and two sons fought the battle over the whole family imagined

00:28:20--> 00:28:35

wife has been trying to sense not on the edges, your saber swung a sword in the middle of the battlefield. She fought like a man. She was a soldier inside the battlefield.

00:28:36--> 00:28:48

When the battle turned against the Muslims, and the province was in dangerous she was the one who stood in front of the Navy salon. And she killed quite a couple of the of the of the enemy with this one.

00:28:51--> 00:28:59

So at the time of May, when she made my hours and that was when women's liberation started.

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

Returning

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

then start now in England don't

00:29:07--> 00:29:13

talk about equality of men and women Subhanallah I was the Prophet I was I said no ladies alone.

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

What do we what would we have done today? No.

00:29:20--> 00:29:24

No, no, no, no, we imagined a woman taking part in back to LA.

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

But

00:29:28--> 00:29:30

there was no such thing.

00:29:32--> 00:29:36

attitude was different. The purpose was different.

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

The objective was to please align.

00:29:41--> 00:29:51

The objective was to defend Islam and it's like it doesn't go and fix it. Nothing to do with whether you're male or female object objective was to please a load

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

So hello,

00:30:03--> 00:30:07

human warrior, we talk about the Amazonian ladies

00:30:08--> 00:30:25

are women. And 10 years later, after the second Mayor 10 years later what happened 124,000 men and women with 524 wounds within a period of 50 years, from zero to 124,000.

00:30:27--> 00:30:29

men, women and children all gathered.

00:30:32--> 00:30:45

They were the best people. And that had you which was the first and the last hedge of Mohamed Salah. He gave the most important program to humanity.

00:30:46--> 00:30:57

The most important document to humanity, the most important constitution to event humanity. He gave a sermon, a sermon on which is based very insincerely,

00:30:58--> 00:31:15

the Charter of the United Nations, the US Declaration of Independence, which of course states as you all know, all men are created equal. That's what the Constitution of the United States of America says right in the first line. It says, all men are created equal.

00:31:17--> 00:31:19

Actually, what they meant was all white men

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

in practice actually wanted me

00:31:27--> 00:31:38

because they still oppress the black people in America. They still oppress the Indians in America, native Indians in America, and everybody was not white was non white. But I say yes.

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

Bhavani Mohammed Salam say, What did he say?

00:31:42--> 00:31:48

What was his opening ambato Gambit in terms of his constitution. Now?

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

Walla

00:31:53--> 00:31:58

Walla, Allah, Marina, Marina has fallen in love.

00:32:00--> 00:32:04

He said, There is no difference between an Arab and a non Arab.

00:32:05--> 00:32:18

And no difference between a non Arab and an Arab, no difference between a white man and a black man, or between a black man and a white man, except in the degree to which they are conscious of allows.

00:32:21--> 00:32:30

And then is the linkage with Islam always makes me lays down a principle. It doesn't only say the negative, it also tells you

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

what you should do to implement the law

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

says no difference between black and white. But what?

00:32:39--> 00:32:44

Yes, but you can be better in terms of your consciousness of a mouse.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

So yes,

00:32:49--> 00:32:54

us. Constitution says no difference between

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

all men are created equal. They don't tell us because we know that we've got the decency of only white people equal. So whether you're a white man that comes from the, from the backstreets of Ireland, or some hole in the ground, in Europe, and you came here and you're the white skin, you are equal to all the other white people in South Africa

00:33:20--> 00:33:34

are no matter what your qualifications were, what your culture was, if you had a bit of a colored skin or a black skin, you are not equal to the rest of humanity. And then me so someone says this constitution too long constitution you should read it sometime.

00:33:36--> 00:33:41

And talk about the reading. I always tell my students who go for hedge to books you have to take with you.

00:33:46--> 00:33:53

You know, technology tablets with American copies hard copies to archetype is you always ask what must I make you know this to make that?

00:33:55--> 00:33:55

Well,

00:33:58--> 00:34:10

you take the Quran, which is already there, so you don't have to take a copy with you. And you take what's your good history book of the enemies of Lawson, and you read it while you're sitting in the harem. And you read in one sitting in Medina

00:34:11--> 00:34:19

and you will feel inspired because you will realize these technical significance of your presence in McHenry

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

so when next time your brother goes for Hajj, or your sister goes for Hajj by the Muhammad by Martin Lynx, and give it to them as a gift instead of rather, you take this read it on the plane read it when you get a read.

00:34:36--> 00:34:41

And you come and tell me again, what his reaction was when he came back?

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

Well, I'd love to know.

00:34:47--> 00:34:48

I'd like to know.

00:34:49--> 00:34:54

I did. So heinola. So when you look in the garbage, and you read about it looks different.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

And when you come back, you're able to speak about hash

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

And gradually, you'll be able to speak about the history of Muhammad.

00:35:06--> 00:35:17

Because that is what the height is about. McCann, Medina has no other significance historically, except the significance of Mohammed Salah.

00:35:21--> 00:35:24

And that is the true love which you will express

00:35:26--> 00:35:27

is by knowing who he is,

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

like the love, you have for Allah

00:35:31--> 00:35:40

is to know Allah is to know that is your role is to know that you you are he is your job. And you always have

00:35:44--> 00:35:47

to know that is your job and you accept

00:35:49--> 00:35:55

but also to know that you're not only but it's also made us halifa

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

says well I'm the slave of Allah, he said is that is between you know, but Allah has

00:36:07--> 00:36:07

given you

00:36:10--> 00:36:12

the task and the wrong to build this dunya

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

tally for to life and

00:36:17--> 00:36:27

we now let all the angels I'm going to put back a leaf on the earth. They said Oh, please don't do that technical each other they cannot do this one of the bad things. Allah says, I know you don't.

00:36:29--> 00:36:42

So remember if somebody says your abuses are masa de facto and representative of Allah and the vice reagent of Allah. I've been given this book Not Just to read, but to implement.

00:36:43--> 00:36:52

So when you go for Hajj, and they say your South African you ate it in your heart. I haven't come into the South African. I've come here to be a Mohammed.

00:36:54--> 00:36:59

I've come in to be a Muslim. I've come in to celebrate my oneness with the oma.

00:37:00--> 00:37:04

Yes, they don't accept it. Don't riot.

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

But they say you can't do anything

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

with your hands and you must eat it in your heart.

00:37:13--> 00:37:23

You must tell your children in your family. Remember, you're not getting the essence of African. You're going as an member of this great nation.

00:37:33--> 00:37:35

Debbie says Alan said,

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

this history

00:37:40--> 00:37:41

these two great places

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

the greatness of the Kalam of La ilaha illAllah.

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

The fact that a loved one has blessed us

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

by giving us

00:37:58--> 00:38:03

as the home of this great gift of tawheed.

00:38:04--> 00:38:05

That is Hassan says

00:38:08--> 00:38:16

protected safeguarding. How should we safeguard he said he said in his last one by safeguarding director FICO

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

How should we save God?

00:38:22--> 00:38:30

He says I've lived through you my intimate septum Bhima if you all fast in it,

00:38:33--> 00:38:35

you will never go astray. Never

00:38:37--> 00:38:41

then means never, ever, ever, ever ever Holy Ghost Kitab Allah He was on.

00:38:42--> 00:38:44

Hold on to my book.

00:38:46--> 00:38:51

Not hold on to the book. And you don't understand what's inside the book. No, that's nonsense.

00:38:54--> 00:39:04

That's like in the time of Bani Israel allows for the resistance in the Quran when they can eat books, they can read the books like donkeys carry books on their backs.

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

Useless.

00:39:12--> 00:39:17

The Sahaba and even so to celebrate the book of Allah lichten feed,

00:39:18--> 00:39:22

Lipton feed, to execute, to learn

00:39:23--> 00:39:26

to make it a reality Indian lives.

00:39:29--> 00:39:49

That is why we have no Islam we have scholars, but every Muslim has become his own army in his own right in his own home with his children, his wife, you should open the book and if he can't understand Arabic You should read the English. I was given so many languages we should read the language you will comfortably

00:39:52--> 00:39:55

there is your objective. Every Muslim has become a mujtahid

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

it's Jihad was the practice by every Muslim on his particular

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

level what I mean when I say stuff people say oh, you must be able to train must know all the scientists of Quran and Hadith before you can. No, no, no, no, no, hold it hold it hold.

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

It is one

00:40:14--> 00:40:27

of the parties that you are obligated as a Muslim, if you are told something to find out the truth of the matter, because the majority chose so that's it.

00:40:30--> 00:40:33

That's it. No, no, no. Please.

00:40:35--> 00:40:40

I have left for you. Kita bollocky was so nutty.

00:40:42--> 00:40:45

You know, he doesn't follow the Medina. He says, Don't follow him.

00:40:47--> 00:40:50

I am saying we've lost the plotline here brothers.

00:40:51--> 00:40:55

We were top of the world when every Muslim was an island.

00:40:58--> 00:41:06

When we translated the Latin Greek works in myths and from Greek and Latin to Arabic, and from the spirit of the rest of the world.

00:41:10--> 00:41:16

The abersoch period, great. Everybody assumes everybody immerse themselves in.

00:41:19--> 00:41:26

They took it seriously when they when they were spoken about the Kitab of Allah mukava this Complete Book

00:41:27--> 00:41:32

One day, Joe Mixon, Amara mahatama said Omar, you know what?

00:41:34--> 00:41:35

There is a verse in your book.

00:41:37--> 00:41:44

If that was yet to be revealed to us in the Torah, we would have been that day a day of celebration.

00:41:47--> 00:41:49

So Amara switchvox

00:41:50--> 00:41:55

said, the verse that was revealed when your Prophet was standing on alpha,

00:41:58--> 00:42:06

C, which first? He said the verse would you be again he said, and yo ma command to London.

00:42:07--> 00:42:08

Why want to

00:42:10--> 00:42:11

follow?

00:42:13--> 00:42:18

The same way your Lord says, today? Am I completed?

00:42:20--> 00:42:20

You did

00:42:22--> 00:42:32

what I am, completed my favor upon you. And I've chosen for you Islam as your deed that you say will love you that was given to us.

00:42:33--> 00:42:35

What created

00:42:36--> 00:42:43

closure? As we speak about today, do you want then your Lord, thank you, this is the perfect thing.

00:42:46--> 00:42:50

What more do you want when you if the doctor says to you,

00:42:52--> 00:42:54

Mohammed, that was a perfect operation.

00:42:56--> 00:43:00

Everything we did was perfect, you will recover 100. And

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

you're allowed this perfect book, Complete Book.

00:43:07--> 00:43:13

You don't have to add anything. You don't have to throw water to make the accordion maybe a little bit less sugar.

00:43:15--> 00:43:21

Or add more sugar and more like people who didn't know most of the market didn't which is sutera is a sukrin.

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

Boring, or metaphor anthyllis was not Dbg da da, da, da, da da, da

00:43:32--> 00:43:34

da, da.

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

Laugh is a big this is an extreme idea. But as we live

00:43:47--> 00:43:53

after this normal profits will come this is the last time they're always going to come. This is the time of the hour is going to come.

00:43:56--> 00:44:01

And what is the greatest test of this time for this oma the test of humanity.

00:44:04--> 00:44:14

What is the greatest challenge of Shakedown in this time is to take us away from the a bark of Allah and worship of Allah and the love of Allah. And the love of his Prophet Muhammad says.

00:44:16--> 00:44:24

I say to you, when I left you in the last lecture that I gave the last time was what what did I say? I say the last line of defense

00:44:25--> 00:44:31

that the West wants us to cross is not to say anything when they attack Mohammed salam, and whatever.

00:44:32--> 00:44:36

That little film came out in America. And it showed Marshall the homelessness through

00:44:38--> 00:44:39

the Omaha standard, even Mohammed

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

we will say

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

the man who brought us this animal we will stand for you will fight for you.

00:44:49--> 00:45:00

So those people who don't are found that day when that verse was revealed they were the best people that ever, ever created Sahaba Mohammed Salah Lawson. They took the torch from the

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

From Oliver, they took the torch,

00:45:03--> 00:45:06

they spread the light to the four corners of the air.

00:45:08--> 00:45:18

They brought to the world, a new era leader is the new smile, a lot of bad things. Also in the east, a lot of fighting went on. But generally speaking, we have a glorious history.

00:45:20--> 00:45:21

I'm reading a book now.

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

This man is a

00:45:27--> 00:45:28

theoretical physicist.

00:45:30--> 00:45:32

Whatever that I don't know, don't ask me what

00:45:35--> 00:45:37

he says he's a theoretical physicist.

00:45:38--> 00:45:44

His father was a Iranian, Shia Muslim. And his mother was British lady.

00:45:46--> 00:45:58

And he's writing this book, on the sign, Arabic scientific discoveries. That's the title of the book. I think that's the title, but it has to do with science and Arabs.

00:46:00--> 00:46:03

And he says, He says, I'm an atheist.

00:46:05--> 00:46:15

That meant that when I opened the first page, and I saw that I bought a book, I like to read what it is. He says, My father was a Muslim, my mother wasn't a Muslim, I'm an atheist.

00:46:17--> 00:46:20

But this is significantly what it is. I'm writing this book.

00:46:23--> 00:46:25

And I want to tell you,

00:46:26--> 00:46:32

that if Islam comes out tops in this book is not my fault. Because I'm an atheist.

00:46:34--> 00:46:38

So we had mentioned on the beginning that Islam in the book is going to come out on top,

00:46:39--> 00:46:49

left, and he can do about it, even with these theoretical physics and whatever he has in his head, there is an Oxford University, he still has to admit in Islam is the best.

00:46:57--> 00:46:59

They actually in this era of science,

00:47:01--> 00:47:03

From where did they come, they came from.

00:47:06--> 00:47:13

They liberated man came in a little hybrid illa ibid Rumble, they brought us from the worship of men.

00:47:14--> 00:47:16

We are now back to the worship of men.

00:47:17--> 00:47:20

We now return the wheels come full swing.

00:47:21--> 00:47:28

People say now was a different day man. That was aka fire. See, who most of the

00:47:29--> 00:47:33

time is me? Being my motion may whatever may shift my

00:47:35--> 00:47:38

we are again worshipping

00:47:40--> 00:47:41

the worshipers of Allah.

00:47:43--> 00:47:49

So this hava brought us from the worship of men to the worship of the lord of May.

00:47:50--> 00:47:51

Allah subhanho

00:47:54--> 00:48:03

the road from Makkah My dear brothers and sisters are full of returning pilgrims they will come home to extend they will bring with me some some dates.

00:48:04--> 00:48:10

souvenirs, good. Presents is good. To share gifts to bring gifts is good.

00:48:13--> 00:48:16

But what we need is not the Zamzam and the dates

00:48:21--> 00:48:22

we can now buy it in gatesville

00:48:30--> 00:48:39

allows longer standing Muslims yeah bring it right to your door You don't have to go to market to buy dates and you came to you go places was something else.

00:48:40--> 00:48:47

Then places not photography is dead taken by us because now you can go down on the corner 10 places not for the

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

image not for that.

00:48:51--> 00:48:53

He was bringing back the message

00:48:54--> 00:49:05

of the last sermon of the hammer time and you can only do that if you read a book on the history of Hamlet. So in your rfl you open this book and you read it

00:49:07--> 00:49:10

and I'm not saying you must make the crew lots a lot.

00:49:13--> 00:49:15

Greatest victories

That's the purpose of life to know

00:49:43--> 00:49:47

Love him great. masala Waterman Harlem llama send yourself

so I could teach him personal thought you know the man. Whenever you think about his name, you say I'll give him to me. It's fascinating why

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

Because you knew him, you learn from him You said in his company?

00:50:07--> 00:50:09

Do we have the same for Mohammed sauce?

00:50:10--> 00:50:15

Do we know who he is? We say we love Allah do we read the Quran in English to understand?

00:50:18--> 00:50:20

So my last one leaving Sharla

00:50:21--> 00:50:38

that that message was which was proclaimed by Mohammed salatu salam on our phone, we go to alpha, take the book, take my word. One day when we get to piano, you can tell Allah what I said. And I will stand

00:50:39--> 00:50:48

and I will say Allah, I yes, I say to them, take Mohammed by Martin league or some other book on the history of Islam whether and we will be judged by our loss.

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

So we are lost on a given childhood, we take this Deen seriously

00:50:54--> 00:50:57

that we look behind the facade What's happening?

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

A lot of

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

embellishment,

00:51:06--> 00:51:11

we have to go back to the basics. We have to see the heart for what it is.

00:51:14--> 00:51:18

And then build up to the point where you want to go. But because I'm accredited,

00:51:20--> 00:51:24

if it just because I'm creative, you don't go should stay here.

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

So rather give the money to charity.

00:51:29--> 00:51:34

Or maybe enroll in a school in first grade and then we take that 1015 20,000 that

00:51:35--> 00:51:40

will get yourself a good teacher for three, four or five years, sit at his feet and learn from him.

00:51:42--> 00:51:44

And he will come to you before you go to

00:51:46--> 00:51:49

because that is how she was first come to you.

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

Before you go watch

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

it is the message of

00:51:55--> 00:52:02

the spirit of heart, the message of heart the lessons of heart was to revolution or to change the world.

00:52:07--> 00:52:12

So, what do we do? We don't change the world in our life and Macedon mechanism is

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

a very macabre karma for

00:52:19--> 00:52:19

Akuma

00:52:22--> 00:52:28

Why? Because his duty as a father should be even though I plan to spend time with you to

00:52:31--> 00:52:31

talk to

00:52:35--> 00:52:37

you to get the general idea like safety from you.

00:52:39--> 00:52:41

But how foolish are we to do that?

00:52:43--> 00:52:44

test is here.

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

The test is here this is the masjid your your neighborhood mercy. This is your first test before you go to the big Masjid.

00:52:54--> 00:52:55

There are many of the great people who

00:52:57--> 00:53:04

I can in my reading of history, maybe at least five of the greatest names I can mention to you. Greatest scholars of Islam.

00:53:07--> 00:53:10

One was of law history scholar of Andalusia

00:53:12--> 00:53:17

even though he started the mother hub law he never went for Hajj.

00:53:20--> 00:53:24

So one day a man made one of his students in Makkah and said Mashallah.

00:53:28--> 00:53:32

You are a student of the great men and even Pfizer's high performance has nothing.

00:53:33--> 00:53:35

He was so busy teaching and learning.

00:53:38--> 00:53:40

There was no time for him to go.

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

He was so busy raising the

00:53:46--> 00:53:52

standard amongst these people, though sometimes we do. So doing the risk of loss.

00:53:53--> 00:54:05

small loss on a diagnosis allows handler makers of those who will see the good and the beauty of this deed and see the Neale Islam. take away all the embellishment. Look at what Muhammad says
