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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:05--> 00:00:13

First of all, we thank Allah subhanaw taala for granting us the opportunity of coming together

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

on this great day available apart.

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

Three blessings today Marshall.

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

We have the Devery Deluxe Ha.

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

They have Juma

00:00:31--> 00:00:33

and the people of arafah

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

are congregating now on Mena people who have come from out of Africa later on Mena celebrating the Hajj that allows the hotel has made found upon us.

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

And as I said on Friday, I want to just recap what I said in terms of the Hajj because Hajj is very important.

00:00:52--> 00:01:07

It is so important that allows wahana tala had named a surah of all the five pillars of Islam of a man of Salah of CRM of Zakah. There is only one surah which allow founder led named after

00:01:08--> 00:01:17

one Eva Hajj so we have in the Quran Surah Al Hajj, there's no Torah to Salah although Salah Sora to see

00:01:18--> 00:01:42

or Sora to soccer No, but we have so two hands. That gives us a message it tells us the importance of hags in the life of Muslim. It tells us not only the spiritual importance of heads, or the importance that allows for high Rotella attaches to height. It also gives us an idea of the importance of Hajj to in our daily lives.

00:01:45--> 00:01:53

Now you might say what is what is important. what is so important about Hajj in the daily life of a Muslim doesn't just come around once a year.

00:01:55--> 00:02:00

Does it isn't it only for the people who go for Hajj or go to Baca Western Antarctica? No.

00:02:01--> 00:02:22

Those are the rituals which allow so how to turn it gifted to all the BRM salatu salam and re established in its present form by NaVi Brahim Elisa to Salam and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Hudson historically binds us

00:02:23--> 00:02:40

to all the profits which allows for health related from Nabil Adam Alice of Salaam up to Mohammed Salah la hora Salah, It is reported that all of them have performed Hajj, all of them admit the love of the brutal law. So there is an historical link.

00:02:41--> 00:02:52

But what is the significance of Hajj if surah to him, if the surah of the Quran is named of the Hajj, there must be something important for us in the Hajj.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

Because when you look at the history of the Hajj

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

we find that

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

the first pledge given to the Nabi sallallahu wasallam

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

by the people of Medina happened at the time of Hutch.

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

It's called as may Akhil, Acaba

00:03:22--> 00:03:36

and oola. The first pledge given at acaba on Mina by people who came from Medina, who heard of the plight of the prophet who heard that he was persecuted in Makkah, they came to give their allegiance to and Ibiza La Silla.

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

Then came the second pledge.

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

Two years after the first pledge,

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

now they came more in numbers more and become Muslim. Now they came to tell the Nabi sallallahu wasallam Mohammed Salah Salaam, we will offer you a refuge. in Medina.

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

We want you to come to Medina.

00:04:05--> 00:04:17

We want you to establish the faith in Medina and we promise you the answer we the answer. The people of Medina will support you in your efforts to establish the deen of Allah.

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

And as I said on Friday, this pledge a second pledge was also

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

attended by the women of Medina

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

would also pledge their allegiance to Muhammad Allah listen.

00:04:36--> 00:04:44

And I've given the example of a lady by the name of La ceiba, one of the ladies who represented the women of Medina at the pledge of Aqaba,

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

who was a warrior

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

who fought in many battles

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

against the kuffar in the parish, and one of the battles that he fought in was the Battle of our hood in which he had defended

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

The Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the battle turned against the Muslims.

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

It tells us then

00:05:09--> 00:05:20

that women have played a pivotal role, in fact, a vital role not only as homemakers, but also as defenders of the faith.

00:05:21--> 00:05:29

As committed sisters to the brothers, we have come 1500 years, and we've separated the two streams

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

which are bringing change in this oma.

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

You cannot clap with one hand tried.

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

somebody tried.

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

Impossible,

00:05:44--> 00:05:49

you're going to clap with two heads. And so this old man's built on two pillars,

00:05:51--> 00:05:51

the man

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

and the woman.

00:05:55--> 00:06:03

And the reason that we are in this situation we are today is that we've neglected the one in the one hand that shriveled up,

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

it can't even hold anything anymore.

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

The women are left to drive the four by fours, while their husbands are making tons of money.

00:06:15--> 00:06:23

Women elect to spend half their pocket money on lipstick and mascara, beauty salons, and germs.

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

And that is the example that those women said for their daughters.

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

And we have seen the results

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

of the kind of image

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

that the waist has given us of women. And we've now adopted as Muslims.

00:06:52--> 00:06:57

That the moral decay that is seated in the West, is irreversible.

00:07:02--> 00:07:06

And Muslims come up with many excuses to exclude the women.

00:07:08--> 00:07:12

Contrary to the example of the unsolved women,

00:07:13--> 00:07:18

and the women of Makkah, who took who played

00:07:19--> 00:07:25

a practical role in the life of Islamic Muslims, and many people are saying today that maybe we should give

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

the world over to women that do a better job than the men.

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

So the second pledge of Aqaba

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

What happened?

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

What was that message?

00:07:40--> 00:07:46

That message was that now a loss of 100 that is going to create

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

an historical window

00:07:51--> 00:08:00

and opportunity for the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to establish the first Islamic State in the world

00:08:03--> 00:08:13

to establish the first state based and built on the Brotherhood, and Sisterhood of Muslims.

00:08:17--> 00:08:24

That establishment of that state in Medina, was the direct result of Hajj.

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

10 years later,

00:08:29--> 00:08:52

the Nabi sallallahu wasallam performed his first Haji Islam, the first Hajj in Islam, the last 100 of the Navy first and last Hajj of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Now 10 years hence 124,000 Sahaba men and women gathered on the plane of arafah.

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

What was what was this gathering about?

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

For what was this gathering?

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

Was this just to be there?

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

To make love bake to make a long standing in the sun?

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

set was that is

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

that what is that what it's about?

00:09:16--> 00:09:22

To Cry your heart and when you then come back and carry on with your same life which had that debt is is that a hunch?

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

How can you be hurt

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

by what stretch of the imagination?

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

Is that?

00:09:36--> 00:09:40

Our kind of Islam that the rukon just about that? That's it.

00:09:42--> 00:09:49

And we come home with some terms and some dates and some testimonies. And we give it out and that's a no no.

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

No, no.

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

If at all

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

whenever you Salalah

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

was given

00:10:05--> 00:10:07

for one reason and one reason alone.

00:10:09--> 00:10:22

It was to establish the rules and regulations that was going to govern the sisterhood and brotherhood of Muslims until the death Korea.

00:10:25--> 00:10:41

The Sermon on the Mount arafa is a sermon which you should read continuously over and over again in order to inspire us and to make us aware of the real importance of heights.

00:10:44--> 00:10:54

And the first rule that the Navy So Laura Solomon established was in many things in we can't go through the whole sermon by still to touch on some of it. As I said, on Friday, the VSA Salam said,

00:10:55--> 00:11:01

la familia, neurobion, Allah, meanwhile, Allah Jimena Allah,

00:11:03--> 00:11:07

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,

00:11:08--> 00:12:02

the first principle that the nervous system laid down was a there is no superiority of an Arab above a non Arab, nor of a non Arab above an Arab, no of black over white or white over black, except to the degree that they are conscious of allows Mahabharata. So the person who is more conscious of Allah he's degree by Allah is superior to the one who is less conscious in a loss. In no other part of our lives, are we more superior than the others if I drive a particular car or look in a particular way or I live in a particular house, or have a particular job or have a particular profession does not elevate me above my brother Muslim, but if I have all that, and I feel Allah and

00:12:02--> 00:12:25

I'm conscious of Allah, then Allah will consider me better than my fellow must not. Allah will do that for me. So that was the first principle established, I said on Friday, all the other declarations, human declarations, of human rights, etc, etc. We're back copies of that first sermon of Mohamed Salah Salah. We see for example, the American

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

Declaration of Independence states in the in its first

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

clause,

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

all men

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

are created equal.

00:12:40--> 00:12:46

What the Americans did not say was what they actually meant was that all white men are created equal.

00:12:49--> 00:13:01

Because despite that declaration, they still appraise the Native Americans, they still appraise the black Americans. In fact, right up to today, America is the biggest discriminated in the world.

00:13:02--> 00:13:08

And we've lived through that life in South Africa. So then, we saw a lot of silom came then to establish

00:13:11--> 00:13:15

the constitution that govern this oma

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

by the Navy, Salah law also gave us

00:13:23--> 00:13:26

the recipe or the program

00:13:27--> 00:13:46

as to how we should protect this gift that allows whatever is given to us. What is this gift, my dear brothers, what is the gift? A Jew came to the Navy Salah to say normal, a Jew he came to a club or a gelato line and he said our armor.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

There is a verse in your book.

00:13:51--> 00:14:03

The Quran, if Allah has revealed that was two moves on a slab to slab we the Jews would have declared that day a national holiday.

00:14:05--> 00:14:09

So Omar asked which verses it he said the verse

00:14:11--> 00:14:22

in the Quran where Allah Subhana Allah says aleo macmall Tula comme de nahko what mantoux aleikum Nam at war of the Tula como Islam Medina

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

said the West is the verse

00:14:28--> 00:14:34

where Allah says and Yama Kemal Tula comm Dena co today

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

I have

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

completed for you your deal

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

what balm to Allah commonality and I have completed my favorites upon you. What are the two the common Islam Medina and I have chosen for you Islam as your deen. So Omar say to the Jew, do you know when this verse was revealed? He said no. I must say this verse was revealed

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

On the day of arafah

00:15:03--> 00:15:04

does an IV salatu salam?

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

Why did the Jew consider this verse to be so important?

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

I don't want to say why Muslims don't consider it to be so important.

00:15:17--> 00:15:23

But he saw in it the fact that a lot of the Most High a lot of the self innovated

00:15:25--> 00:15:32

a lot of the creative elements in the earth alone was established and seen so many profits 124,000 to be exact

00:15:34--> 00:15:45

have endowed this omo with the greatest given that is the surety that this Deen of Islam is the complete and perfect Deen revealed in the Quran of a loss.

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

And so the NaVi sauce alum tells us

00:15:52--> 00:16:04

that the recipe for protection of this theme of this model of this completion is Tara to Fie coma income a septum Bhima Kitab Allah He was

00:16:06--> 00:16:17

in Casa de Milan de la vida Kitab Allah who was said on live RFI said as part of his sermon, all Muslims, I have laid for you two things.

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

The Book of Allah and my Sunnah.

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

And whosoever will cling and attach him or herself to the book of Allah and my Sona lamp, Toby Lu Aveda.

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

You will never go astray. Never.

00:16:39--> 00:16:42

I'm not saying so. You see the world.

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

I'm not here to convince you.

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

Allah gives hedaya.

00:16:49--> 00:16:49

Remember,

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

it's not for eclipses. In fact,

00:16:55--> 00:17:01

a lot of superhero Natal gives Hera. If you look at the world that I travel a lot, I see what's happening in the world.

00:17:04--> 00:17:09

You see how Muslims are drifting away from the Sunnah. And the Quran of a loss.

00:17:12--> 00:17:19

We have seen in Cape Town in last few years, how we are divided into so called mainstream Islam

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

whatever that may mean,

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

we change that the practice of Buddha and ship is fine

00:17:30--> 00:17:34

because that is mainstream Islam because our forefathers have done it so we have to do it.

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

We have seen even all our supporting this kind of

00:17:44--> 00:17:45

mainstream Islam

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

which is not to be found

00:17:53--> 00:17:58

neither in the Koran nor in the cinema but it's only to be found

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

in a third thing which Mohammed intervention it's called mainstream Islam.

00:18:06--> 00:18:12

And I'm not here to tell you to convince you that there is no such thing as mainstream Islam. There's only Islam

00:18:15--> 00:18:28

and the oma cabal to lacantina kebab to Allah Amati Warrell de la como Islam, Medina, Allah says, and I have made Islam for you as God.

00:18:29--> 00:18:33

And Allah raises us as Muslims.

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

There is no such thing as a Salafi Muslim.

00:18:39--> 00:18:40

Or a Muslim.

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

Or an actual been a Muslim.

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

No.

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

You should call yourself I am a Muslim.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

My Deen is Islam.

00:18:55--> 00:19:01

Because a day will arrive in your life and my life when the angel will come and ask you

00:19:03--> 00:19:11

in your grave. What was your deen? martynuk? What are you going to say? mainstream Islam?

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

Are you going to say to the angel or my Dean? I lived in Cape Town he knows my Deen was mainstream Islam.

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

Because you know that happened to you when you say that.

00:19:26--> 00:19:32

And he will ask you what's your table and what was your What was your Imam? And who is our man?

00:19:33--> 00:19:34

Who is your man? Who?

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

No, no who's?

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

Who

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

was a man.

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

I look for

00:19:44--> 00:19:45

one core.

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

One core army man.

00:19:50--> 00:19:55

If you're going to say the book that some person wrote in Macau, some person wrote in Yemen.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

I followed that book. What do you think is going on?

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

to you

00:20:03--> 00:20:07

is a property that angel is going to ask you and who was your prophet?

00:20:08--> 00:20:18

Who was your messenger? You say oh my messenger, I had a picture where the big red beard with a big green turban used to come visit us all the time. That was my share. What do you think is going to happen to you?

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

So the Navy says it is important for you to understand my dear brothers and sisters. No sisters sorry.

00:20:30--> 00:20:31

I hope I haven't offended anybody.

00:20:34--> 00:20:43

So it is important for you to understand to get clarity on your deen if you have a clear mind, it cannot be corrupted by nobody.

00:20:45--> 00:20:53

You have a clear idea of your of your deen What are we doing? hij love bake Aloma bake love Baker.

00:20:54--> 00:21:03

love America. Law Sheree Kala Kala break we say and confirm to our laws what Hello tala What do we confirm?

00:21:04--> 00:21:15

No particle not in a book not in a human being not in a mainstream Islamic nothing. And when we say the Salah What do we say? Now I suddenly found a fella to

00:21:16--> 00:21:16

live

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

for who? For Allah subhanho wa

00:21:22--> 00:21:41

Taala say when you make Salah you can't make Salah for something else you need to do that. No no no no Salah is little always lilla hit Allah Yes After so I could make dua for health and welfare whatever you want to ask but you didn't know Salah to ask you know I'm gonna make this up no Salah is lilla it Allah bus.

00:21:43--> 00:21:48

That's purity of intention, purity of the so today allows to handle has given us

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

when they came 224,000 people when they came from Africa, where did they go?

00:21:57--> 00:22:14

Home 124,000 they spread throughout the earth. They became scientists who first your own. There are books I translated books from Latin from Greek into Arabic. They both both the first universities.

00:22:15--> 00:22:27

They establish justice in the world. That is the purpose of arafah out of Isaiah to re energize the oma to come back to their communities and to spread

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

the message of the whole app.

00:22:34--> 00:22:39

That's why I said on Friday. When you go for hikes, you must take two things with you.

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

You don't have to accept this you can tell talking nonsense.

00:22:45--> 00:22:53

What is the Quran you don't have to take the Quran with you because there are millions of Quran. So maybe we should take one with a translation with you. Secondly, you have to take with you

00:22:54--> 00:22:58

a very good book on the history of Muhammad, Allah holism.

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

And the best book that I've ever read, ever, ever in my whole life.

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

short life is the book by Martin Lynx.

00:23:09--> 00:23:22

Muhammad from the based on the earliest sources, it's a book that every Muslim should actually have. Martin LEAKES called Mohammed should be a book, which every home should have that book.

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

And if your brother goes for Hajj, give him that book as a gift.

00:23:29--> 00:23:45

So when he says in the horror of Makkah and Medina or aura or Mena, or in his room, he can read and by reading understand, and by understanding, he can appreciate

00:23:46--> 00:23:52

the beauty. That is Makkah and Medina. Otherwise, it is all a filter, and nothing more.

00:23:54--> 00:24:10

Nothing. I mean, your fault is gone. Because there's no more karma to look at. There's no more haram to go to. So what happens, then disappears, like a Pepsi Cola or a cookie open and all the gas comes out, and then it's finished. You know what I'm talking about exactly what I'm talking about.

00:24:12--> 00:24:14

But if you have the understanding,

00:24:16--> 00:24:42

you will appreciate and how to become a reality to you. So even before you go, you should read that book. So you can identify inshallah, with the people of Hajj. The second topic of this morning is of course, allows for handler says, while mudan ajaan. Lacombe insha. Allah Allah speaks about otorrhea Allah speaks about the sacrifice. And we know that this sacrifice is embedded

00:24:44--> 00:24:51

in our identification with our great great grandfather who Rahim, Allah salatu salam.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

When Allah Subhana Allah commanded him in Surah to solve that, I think 73rd surah

00:25:01--> 00:25:02

Allah commanded him

00:25:04--> 00:25:07

to sacrifice his son Ismail allyssa. To Salah. Why.

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

That's always the question when asked to answer why

00:25:14--> 00:25:26

this was such a nice man. I don't think there was a nicer man in the history of Islam then nebra Hey Melissa, what is software? I can imagine you're such a, such a super

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

soft hearted man.

00:25:33--> 00:25:35

Allah bergerie been forged with two wives.

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

But he could handle it.

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

I don't think he wanted it.

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

He was part of a great plan.

00:25:48--> 00:25:52

And part of the plan that his eldest son would be smiling his most beloved son only smile.

00:25:53--> 00:25:58

But Jamie, as he was, he was South Africans. He was on a TOEFL or a theorem.

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

So he was told by his wife and his ICT one No, no, no, I don't want this little boy. I know mountain is hot. And so you should take this boy away. We know the story he went, took the boy to Makkah with his mother and silver in the wind back later when the boy was starting to walk. And when the boy was starting to work a lot smarter. Listen to him. Of course, he loved the childhood. You know how this

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

people love the eldest son.

00:26:25--> 00:26:38

So what did Allah say to the child with just about working lsvt Oh, Ibrahim, I want you to sacrifice him. And what do you remember I am saying? The man that he was, he went to he said, he said, Oh my sir.

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

Allah commanded me to to sacrifice you.

00:26:47--> 00:26:51

And what did he say after that? He said, I want you to think about it.

00:26:52--> 00:27:13

And I want you to tell me what you think of it. So hello. He didn't say to his honor. Allah said Oh, come here. You know, cough, cough and bring the knife and No, no. He said, No, he was surprised. I mean, he was, that was his most beloved possession he has. He had nothing else no money and no nothing. And the only had was this little boy.

00:27:14--> 00:27:22

And he had to sacrifice this little boy. The boy came back to him later on and said, Yeah, but if two

00:27:24--> 00:27:32

Saturdays you need it, insha Allah homina fatherly. The boy said to his father, oh, my father, do what you have been commanded.

00:27:34--> 00:27:51

Look at the commitment the man even of the children of the MBR leaves Islam. Do what you have commanded, you will find we have the most patient ones. And of course, we know the story took the child to Mina and put the child on his on his face. So you wouldn't see his face when he

00:27:53--> 00:28:05

cuts with a knife and he put the knife on the back of the boy's head of the neck and allow the sender there from the Jana and of course the Ram was slaughtered in the place of a smile at a certain

00:28:08--> 00:28:14

significance of the story. What is the moral of the story? The moral of the story is that you

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

and me as Muslims

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

must have a only smile.

00:28:26--> 00:28:31

You can't just go through life you know from A to Zed without sacrificing anything for our last panel.

00:28:33--> 00:28:56

We sacrificed so much for this dunya for this will so many things. We do so many things for was focusing one of Orca Davis and Davis and Davis customer, shopping and data company voice into season. You know, we do so much in the cargo capacity and so many things we do for the dunya. But how many of us would sacrifice out the thing which we love most for last? That is the grill test.

00:28:57--> 00:29:06

And the test today's test well? How much am I prepared to give away from which are that which are given to me for the sake of a loss.

00:29:07--> 00:29:14

Only then was his faith confirmed that we brought him when he carried out that command of Allah to sacrifice his smile.

00:29:15--> 00:29:24

And of course the last one I'm going to say is ladnier now lalala homeline. Today we again, in honor of that day sacrifice and Allah says

00:29:25--> 00:29:57

Allah Allah to whom Allah, Allah, Allah is not interested in the blood and Allah is not interested in the meat of the animal, while our Kenyan Allahu takom income allows for how God is interested in your taqwa in how you what is in your heart when you want to make the sacrifice. What are you asking allows harlot Allah and I besides alpha three, he reports that the Prophet said to say that Fatima, Fatima, come and stand here and look when I slaughter your sheep

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

for

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

Vallely be our cotton duck to Romania because when the first drop of blood falls,

00:30:07--> 00:30:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives all your previous sins.

00:30:16--> 00:30:29

So the woman must stand by the hole and look into the hole and see when the blood flows and the men and that for me it is being slaughtered. Then she said, Yeah, so Lola is is only for us.

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

The family of the Prophet, prophets in New

00:30:34--> 00:30:43

Berlin, our Muslims, this is for us and for every single Muslims who export bar. And then IV Salam said, Man, watch

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

the onion, hey, follow me.

00:30:47--> 00:30:53

Follow masala evisa Sallam said, the person who has the means

00:30:54--> 00:30:58

to make a sacrifice. And he does not make a sacrifice.

00:31:00--> 00:31:03

He should not pray with us Salah to read

00:31:06--> 00:31:19

other words, but part of this a part of that part of read isn't part of the Obamas ism. He stands outside the circle. He's a Muslim, but he says outside the circle, because he's too stingy.

00:31:20--> 00:31:30

Because he has to know of course, we're not talking about people who don't have the means we're talking about people who have the means to sacrifice. And so today then is a day of sacrifice.

00:31:31--> 00:31:56

Sacrifice in many ways. However, I even made a sacrifice, all of us have a responsibility also to what is sacrifice mean. Sacrifice means to give of that which you love. The most. Sacrifice means to give things when you are down. For example, you don't have to give that sacrifice a lot of money, you give that to sacrifice.

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

It's nothing, just take it out of your pocket and give it to it.

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

If you haven't got time, and you give your time that is sacrifice.

00:32:06--> 00:32:11

So sacrifice is the goal of today.

00:32:12--> 00:32:23

And we have seen in this year and this is the I think in the in the last 100 years 2012 has been the most auspicious year in the history of the world.

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

Some many things that happened in 2012.

00:32:29--> 00:32:34

So many things are also happening in 2012 still equity and will continue to happen.

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

If we look at an analyze

00:32:38--> 00:32:46

the historical events of the last two years or three years you will find it is a is three fold with sacrifice.

00:32:48--> 00:32:56

People are making the supreme sacrifice. What is the supreme sacrifice, supreme sacrifices to give your life

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

for a loss.

00:32:59--> 00:33:05

Nobody says what I'm saying, if you defend your faith, and you die, you die.

00:33:07--> 00:33:19

If you defend your property, and you die, you die. What does that mean? Go straight to john. If you die defending your family, you go to Geneva. If you die defending your country, you go to Geneva.

00:33:20--> 00:33:25

And we've seen in the last year or two young people

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

and old people making the supreme sacrifice. It's not easy to analyze this. But I'll try in a few words, to look at what is happening in the world over the last couple of years.

00:33:44--> 00:33:46

This is my own analysis.

00:33:48--> 00:33:53

Good nothing to do with a foreigner. So now, what I think what I think is what I think

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

I just have the opportunity to share with you what I think

00:34:00--> 00:34:01

in 2003.

00:34:02--> 00:34:15

Because what is happening today as a history, things don't just happen. Things happen for a purpose for a reason. And there's historical background to what happens in 2003. Our friend, Mr. Bush

00:34:17--> 00:34:20

said that we have to go into Iraq for two reasons.

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

One is because Iraq has got

00:34:25--> 00:34:28

weapons of mass destruction, which of course was a big lie.

00:34:29--> 00:34:48

When that light didn't stick anywhere, he said no, he was going to have to establish democracy in the Arab world. The Arabs need democracy. And we the West have got this thing which we have, which nobody else has, which is called democracy.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

So the key argument for going into Iraq was to establish democracy in Iraq. I'm not going to go into what happened subsequent to that.

00:35:00--> 00:35:29

A year later 2004. Because this idea to go route among a lot of people said, well, because they are interested, they're not going to, because it became untenable for America and Europe to support dictators. People didn't accept it anymore. There were viruses as well, although they were of great value to the west, but in terms of this new ideology, this new world order of establishing the ba cracy, they will not be to support the dictators anymore. What happened?

00:35:31--> 00:35:39

America and the West recruited young people to become stars, in cyber training,

00:35:40--> 00:35:48

training young people to use the internet to spread the idea of democracy in the Arab world, is how it started.

00:35:50--> 00:35:52

These people were funded by America and Europe.

00:35:57--> 00:36:06

Now, there's a perception that, you know, we always have these theories, that the West is behind all the upheavals in Libya, in Tunisia in Egypt,

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

this time around? I think it's not so

00:36:13--> 00:36:18

of course, they want to spread democracy. But what what has happened now

00:36:20--> 00:36:32

is that the movements that came to life in the Arab world was not directed by the West. It was self directed and self motivated.

00:36:35--> 00:37:07

And no one foresaw the great changes that came about because of the, and you've seen it on TV, in Tahrir Square in Tunisia. We've seen it now. people dying in Syria by the 1000s. Continuing continuously, and how did it start? It started with sacrifice. It started with the man by the name of Mohammed Aziz in Tunisia, a street vendor, an educated street vendor, whose stuff was taken away by the police confiscated by the police. And it was so Don said myself a light

00:37:09--> 00:37:21

that is in our hands. But that started that one main sacrifice, started the revolution that changed the face of the world, and certainly the face of the Muslim world.

00:37:22--> 00:37:25

So what we see is a rapidly changing world.

00:37:26--> 00:37:45

We see that this world has changed 360 degrees since 2008. What happened in 2008? You must know this. One day, your children is going to study the system, they're going to say these are the changes that the only thing that they will be shocked at is

00:37:46--> 00:37:56

there was a there is a time when Muslims were not found in Greece, three, Bosnia and Kosovo. Our children's Granton was made with a Muslim when Muslims were killed in Bosnia and Kosovo.

00:37:57--> 00:38:03

There were 2 billion Muslims, nobody helped them. Those are the questions that our children may ask. But 2008

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

what happened

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

in America,

00:38:10--> 00:38:17

there was a housing crisis. It brought down the American economy and pull down the whole world's economy.

00:38:21--> 00:38:23

It was the time of reckoning

00:38:25--> 00:38:28

for the West, who base the economy on Reba.

00:38:30--> 00:38:41

alswamitra says, he started dakara verse 278, to Latina, hamanako la one aroma documentary Reba in kuntum momineen for Atlanta, Palo

00:38:44--> 00:38:49

Alto, I'm going to show you people who believe do not deal in interest.

00:38:50--> 00:38:53

And if you are dealing in interest, leave it now.

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

Why?

00:38:56--> 00:39:17

And you know, Allah gives you time, Allah saying this 1400 1500 years ago, he's given us 1500 years. Allah says why if we don't do it, what's going to happen if you don't deal if you do it in the Riba? purposefully, you think has nothing I'm taking a loan, I can do this. Dharma outlay rebars nothing it's only 5% 10% even if it's zero, or 0% is no rubber.

00:39:19--> 00:39:34

But in Japan, you know the interest rate is 0%. They still call it an interest rate allows for I'm gonna say is five lambda if you're not going to desist and stop. With Delia Incas. Allow Sandra says what going to

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

Allah says, I will declare war on you.

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

Whoa,

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

in war, people die.

00:39:45--> 00:39:53

Everything goes into decline. Finally Allah decided to declare war on the west, and the declaration of war, as done capitalism.

00:39:55--> 00:39:58

Capitalism is alive now. People don't believe in anymore.

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

Democracy

00:40:02--> 00:40:06

and political freedom of whichever so proud,

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

scone,

00:40:10--> 00:40:12

the heartland of democracy,

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

the heartland of democracy, weight started France.

00:40:18--> 00:40:19

Liberty fraternity.

00:40:21--> 00:40:25

Where is the democracy? Europe is bankrupt because of its democracy.

00:40:27--> 00:40:34

Because of its capitalism, they're more bankrupt in some African countries, the Spanish are running to Africa

00:40:35--> 00:40:42

and the Italians to seek sustenance, they're dying of starvation on the streets of Athens.

00:40:43--> 00:40:48

And in Italy, in fact, they've done democracy, Italy and Greece,

00:40:49--> 00:40:54

that the government, the elected governments and appoint the technocrats to look after the economy.

00:40:57--> 00:41:01

People in the states of Spain, Greece, London, New York,

00:41:04--> 00:41:45

are saying we want justice, we want transparency. We want the real democratic procedure. They realize that only a few people in democracy rules the country, the banks, most of all, in Europe, all you read about, it was very loud. Baila Bernard who know the people, not the government bailout the banks. People are asking what is the point of voting? If neither the citizens nor the elected people in government have an effective say, in the final decisions, this country is the same. We have the Bowser, rottenness, democracy that you could ever find in the world. So we have the best we got the worst constitution. We've got the worst democracy. Why? Because we have the proportional

00:41:45--> 00:41:58

system where the number of votes you get the number of seats. That's a democracy, democracy when you vote for your representative in Parliament. Mr. X ends in roundabout ease. we vote for him.

00:41:59--> 00:42:05

And he goes to Parliament and our behalf and he is answerable to us. And if he doesn't deliver, we fire him.

00:42:07--> 00:42:26

You can't find anybody now. Because it's not the ANC. They do. And that's it. You can't fire the ANC. They're only responsible to themselves. So corruption sets in Greece, the economy of Greece fell because of corruption, spying corruption, Italy's Mohan, Allah was corrupted state in the whole of the Democratic world.

00:42:28--> 00:42:37

So the young people on the streets of Egypt, and Syria and Tunisia calling for democracy, have to re examine the code for democracy.

00:42:38--> 00:42:49

Because the very heart of democracy is in tatters and ruins. the very opposite of capitalism is integris. Andrew in New York and London, London. So what what is left?

00:42:51--> 00:43:00

What is left is the Sermon on the Mount of Mohammed Salah Larsson. What is left is the absence of reviving an economic system.

00:43:01--> 00:43:06

What is left is for people to elect their representatives will represent them.

00:43:08--> 00:43:09

Now I say this.

00:43:10--> 00:43:19

And it's nice to talk about Lebanon, and about Palestine and about avani. Stan, and about Egypt. What about us here in Cape Town, South Africa?

00:43:21--> 00:43:28

That's the question. in Johannesburg, in Durban, in Port Elizabeth, what about us?

00:43:30--> 00:43:36

were our elected representatives representing the Muslim community.

00:43:38--> 00:43:40

I tell you what's going to happen.

00:43:41--> 00:43:46

When I will try and be a bit prophetic now I'll probably be dead by the time this is going to happen.

00:43:48--> 00:43:51

And the same thing that is happening in the Middle East is going to happen here.

00:43:53--> 00:43:54

Because your son and my son

00:43:56--> 00:43:59

are all going to university. They all have degrees.

00:44:00--> 00:44:01

My daughter neonode.

00:44:03--> 00:44:08

They're going to reach a stage where they're going to say enough and normal.

00:44:09--> 00:44:17

We've had enough of scandals of halau scandals, have had scandals, of so many scandals

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

that last for three months. And then we forget about.

00:44:25--> 00:44:30

We have enough we've had enough of unelected people talking on behalf of the Muslim community

00:44:31--> 00:44:34

and doing absolute zero for the Muslim community.

00:44:36--> 00:44:51

And what is going to happen? They're going to protest they're going to replace with people that will not also be the people to represent this community. Why? Because he's going to be an aggressive change

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

and aggressive change. And I know what you think, oh, we are mainstream Muslims. You know, this has been like this in 1940

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

The Nine the all Mr rule the method

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

in which book

00:45:08--> 00:45:14

a way in the Quran does Allah say that the aim is to rule the Muslim community? Anybody according to the verse

00:45:18--> 00:45:19

it says

00:45:21--> 00:45:25

Walter comin Come on man. They arrived from amongst you a group

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

we'll go to good.

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

We'll order the good and forbidding evil.

00:45:34--> 00:45:36

I said to the radio last night for example.

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

The Quran was being read on the radio

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

small example.

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

But when you listen to the Quran,

00:45:50--> 00:45:56

when it has to do with the Quran, you know people seeing all kinds of songs on the radio, they call it Casitas.

00:45:57--> 00:46:04

I haven't made I can't make out a seagull in Arabic. But I can't make a single word that is Arabic.

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

But

00:46:09--> 00:46:09

nobody cares.

00:46:12--> 00:46:13

But when the Quran is read,

00:46:14--> 00:46:15

okay.

00:46:16--> 00:46:23

So the corn is read in the most perfect fashion, with that read everything. And then

00:46:26--> 00:46:31

a man comes and translates the Quran into English. Fine.

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

But I've noticed that all the translations of the Quran

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

are read in the English language by a white sounding individual.

00:46:48--> 00:46:57

What people so how do they say in the name Allah? Is the name of Allah? Is the name of Allah.

00:46:59--> 00:47:04

Allah, Allah, your angel, we can't even get people to say

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

Oh Allah

00:47:09--> 00:47:14

translating the Quran and not even being able to say the word Allah.

00:47:15--> 00:47:18

And what do we do? We eat aku sisters drink our tea.

00:47:20--> 00:47:21

We listen with one ear.

00:47:23--> 00:47:23

But that's it.

00:47:25--> 00:47:34

billion Muslims and we can't find one person who can translate the Quran in reading in beautiful English and say Allah and Muhammad

00:47:39--> 00:47:40

asked me there's

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

only a few 100

00:47:45--> 00:47:50

treat people to believe you would do well and you couldn't even get one man to say

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

they say Allah

00:47:58--> 00:48:00

who's gonna fall in the radius? They say you can't it can't do this

00:48:02--> 00:48:03

computer

00:48:05--> 00:48:10

so when we see the burqa being removed from this community we these are the things

00:48:11--> 00:48:17

which we trivialize if we start trivializing the name of a law. What is our worth?

00:48:19--> 00:48:24

What is it what are we with? We let's hit him. Zero less than zero.

00:48:26--> 00:48:29

We can't say a word imagine defending Allah

00:48:33--> 00:48:34

sorry for shouting at you.

00:48:35--> 00:48:36

But you know

00:48:38--> 00:48:49

this is by demon Cod. We love we should love this team should stand for this deep dive for this deep and we're gonna die in any case.

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

should go further and say please men can Allah

00:48:55--> 00:48:59

get some nurses Allah? At least minimum you can do?

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

Are you saying they're so beautiful people on the radio who speak such beautiful English? You think they come from New York or London? They Muslims? They say they translate the Quran? Why do you have some foreign or some foreign sounding accent? Because it's nice to have a white van to translate the whole, that whole idea this elevation of the white bear respect of the white man.

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

So May Allah stronger given charlo

00:49:29--> 00:49:35

that the time has arrived for the world to look at Islam as the solution. Democracy has failed.

00:49:38--> 00:49:48

And it's not just what I'm not just saying this. It's there in the newspaper, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, London in its failed capitalism.

00:49:50--> 00:49:53

The capitalists are all sleeping

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

in bus shelters in Europe. So where's the alternative?

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

Alternative lies in Islam.

00:50:04--> 00:50:08

But the West will not take we are taking our own financial system to a certain extent.

00:50:10--> 00:50:19

But they will take our other system as well provided we within ourselves and amongst ourselves. So implement

00:50:20--> 00:50:24

the political and economic system of Islam.

00:50:25--> 00:50:29

So May Allah Allah giving Charla, that we inspire our young people.

00:50:32--> 00:50:34

We're studying or knowledgeable of the world,

00:50:36--> 00:50:51

to come up with a case of ideas to implement in the community, in order for us to be truly, truly representative of an era in which the establishment of the Islamic State

00:50:53--> 00:51:05

and the seeking of knowledge and a spreading of Islam, wherever we may find ourselves, so May Allah, Allah give you a great day in sha Allah, and remember this aid.

00:51:07--> 00:51:09

We are fortunate or humbled to have aid

00:51:10--> 00:51:17

universally with the whole of the Muslim world. Remember, this ad is four days, it's today,

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

tomorrow,

00:51:21--> 00:51:24

Sunday and Monday.

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

So, if you have an opportunity

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

or you have the means to make a call to ban, you have four days to make the call.

00:51:37--> 00:51:39

And remember, also

00:51:41--> 00:51:43

that I a household

00:51:45--> 00:51:46

that is a mother,

00:51:47--> 00:51:48

father,

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

all the children in the house,

00:51:52--> 00:51:53

you can slaughter

00:51:56--> 00:52:00

your animals on behalf of your family.

00:52:02--> 00:52:10

They have one animal, one sheep, you can slaughter it by Sheriff a murder on behalf of your family.

00:52:11--> 00:52:15

And this is based on the fact

00:52:16--> 00:52:20

that the Nabi sallallahu wasallam slaughtered

00:52:21--> 00:52:22

one sheep

00:52:23--> 00:52:27

on behalf of the oma of Hispaniola.

00:52:29--> 00:52:30

So if you are poor,

00:52:31--> 00:52:33

not by the means

00:52:34--> 00:52:37

you have a big family and you want to make corbon

and you're thinking of getting the band one for my wife for myself. You make your Nia for my family

00:52:49--> 00:52:50

waconia for my family.

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

So every you can consider the three sheep for your family, one sheep for your family tenshi for your family, and all of them will get the same reward as if each of them floated on their own.

00:53:05--> 00:53:09

So in Islam, my dear brothers and sisters, nothing

00:53:10--> 00:53:17

is difficult. allows for Allah has made it easy for all of us. So May Allah grant you inshallah
