We continue part three of our lectures in honor of Anwar al aulaqi.

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

And just to give some perspective of what we're talking about, this is not part three.

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

We talking about

00:00:58--> 00:01:06

the book title of a thief It was a domestic and scholar and the book title was named

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

either Aurora de la vie Ameren

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

Hey yellow burner,

00:01:15--> 00:01:19

when allows the hand to Allah wants to bring about

00:01:20--> 00:01:27

a circumstance want to bring about a set of circumstances allow us to have a hand with Allah prepares for that.

00:01:29--> 00:01:41

Allah prepares for the only way we can confirm the veracity of that statement is to go back in history and to look at were allowed to have a high mortality period.

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

circumstances in advance to come about in order to give victory to the Muslims.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

And we said that

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

our first example was,

00:01:56--> 00:02:07

that was the Battle of blood. I will complete that today. inshallah today will give two more very interesting examples, which I think it's important for us to remember.

00:02:08--> 00:02:19

And we can relate this to our children or grandchildren, whoever it may be. These are very important parts of our history. And it shows that allows we're hardwired to Allah

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

is what the

00:02:22--> 00:02:43

believers always with the believers, we must never lose hope. We will never ever lose hope in the mercy and the planning of allows for her no water. We are now in a time when we don't understand really what's going on. We don't know why this is happening. But when our grandchildren great grandchildren going to look back at the Coronavirus.

00:02:44--> 00:02:48

They will say if it wasn't for the Coronavirus this and this and this would not have happened to us.

00:02:50--> 00:02:58

And everything that happens to Muslim is good. So in this Coronavirus, and in all these wars that are taking place in the world,

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

there is a plan and we will see the plans of our last dollar in the examples and when to quote

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

the next example I'm going to talk about

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

is

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

a lot

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

a lot a lot lottoland

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

sent an army to Persia.

00:03:26--> 00:03:41

One of the few excursions to Persia that he said the leader of this army, his name was Abu Assad, Kofi Abu aubade. At sacrifice Naboo I made a sucker he was a very courageous, gentle, extremely courageous,

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

dapper, as they say in Africans.

00:03:46--> 00:03:51

And in order to win battles, he took big risks.

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

So when he

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

took on the Persian army,

00:03:57--> 00:04:08

he didn't realize the strength of the Persian army. And he was defeated in a battle battle. In fact, he it's called the Al Jesus, the battle His name is the Battle of Algiers.

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

In this battle, he lost 50% of his brain.

00:04:17--> 00:04:20

I believe a 50% of his men, he lost.

00:04:22--> 00:04:28

So the entire half of the Muslim army, one of the biggest armies in America, Thompson was wiped out.

00:04:32--> 00:04:40

Of course now, the Persians had a golden opportunity to do the rest to wipe out the whole of the Muslim

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

and

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

a sack off he realized obliterate that.

00:04:51--> 00:04:57

You know, all is lost. All is lost. There's nothing you can do as far away from home

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

for not to send return.

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

forcement will take too long a time is on the battlefield.

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

And

00:05:06--> 00:05:12

he believed that this was probably the end of the victories of the Muslims over the, over the Muslims.

00:05:14--> 00:05:28

And, of course, what he also thought was that all the lands they conquered in between Makkah and, and Persia would now be lost Iraq and the Arabian Peninsula, this all these victories will go to waste.

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

But

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

victory

00:05:38--> 00:05:45

for Muslims is not dependent on the number of soldiers on the ground, you have to understand this

00:05:47--> 00:06:06

victory for Muslims is not dependent on the number of drones that you have flying in the sky, or the number of tanks that you have, or the number of planes that you have no. The issue that confirms and will

00:06:08--> 00:06:17

realize victory for Muslims is for us to fulfill the requirements of our email.

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

What are the requirements of human requirements of human is to put your trust in almost

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

completely? Absolutely.

00:06:28--> 00:06:42

You have to put your trust in the last part of that number one. Number two, you have to believe that everything is in the hands of Allah. And whatever Allah Allah does, is well done.

00:06:44--> 00:06:48

If Allah is meant for you to lose the battle, you will lose the battle.

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

But if I lost one last meal for you to win the battle,

00:06:53--> 00:06:59

you're in the battle. The same with a battle in anything else, with your health, with your wealth,

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

with everything, all in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

and allows pharmacies

00:07:09--> 00:07:23

in Oregon in Allaha udah for your annual levena M and allow pharmacies that allows wahana tala he defends. He protects EU. And levena. Mmm.

00:07:24--> 00:07:26

Pretty straightforward, very simple.

00:07:27--> 00:07:34

He protects those who have a man with faith who believe in him, not willy nilly.

00:07:36--> 00:07:40

No, believing him absolutely believe in him. So

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

we have the in the situation.

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

What is allowed handler? What What did Allah do?

00:07:55--> 00:08:11

Did they get victory? Or Didn't they get victory? What was the last plan? We can now look back at history. And we can see what happened. What did Allah do? That time he didn't see they didn't know what happened. I thought if he didn't know, the things that went on,

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

at the time, when he was there on the battlefield, with only half the soldiers.

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

Something happened in the capital of Persia.

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

What happened in the capital of Persian?

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

in the capital of Persia, the two leaders of the army that was supposed to they're supposed to God.

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

Pleasure, the city itself.

00:08:37--> 00:08:43

There were two main commanders were fighting amongst themselves, for whatever reason it was.

00:08:46--> 00:08:59

And half the army belong to Rustom, pretty famous name and the other half belong to the other general Pharaohs on to the two generals looking after the interests of the city. And they had a quarrel.

00:09:02--> 00:09:08

So the general that was leaving the army against the Muslims.

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

He was recalled by the king.

00:09:12--> 00:09:21

He said things like Please come. We have a mutiny in our hands here in the in, in the country, and we need your assistance, you're the best man to solve this issue.

00:09:23--> 00:09:28

So he was taken out of the battlefield, rushed

00:09:29--> 00:09:33

to modernity around capitalism city. And

00:09:35--> 00:09:46

of course, the battle was stalled until he came back. It gave the Muslims enough time for the halifa available hardtop to send reinforcements.

00:09:49--> 00:09:56

And this man being recalled, happened exactly at the moment when the machines are going to be wiped out.

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

Man was ready if I can

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

He was going he was talking you know, the king needs you you have to return immediately.

00:10:06--> 00:10:14

So, again an example of and of course the Muslims when they got reinforcements suparna law they want the concrete pleasure

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

as we know so when we look back in history we can look back and for the district back and then we can fast forward because you know what happened in the fast forward so that's an example that allows founder intervened in a lot of you w ID Latina Avenue, not only on the battlefield brothers and sisters, this is to everything in your life everything allows founder will defend you and Allah will protect you

00:10:42--> 00:10:45

wherever you need protection and wherever wherever you need help.

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

I said example to the Battle of

00:10:50--> 00:10:55

broth was the first one with the unsolved broth in Ibiza, Solomon,

00:10:56--> 00:11:22

he became the leader. And the answer, if they had known going into that battle of Bath on that day, they never realized that it was going to be bring them so close to Islam that they will become the trusted companions of Muhammad Sallallahu. So before they will, I don't wish this panel so I'll change it to one battle battle aguar the third example and also an interesting example.

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

Guys, but closer to our time, or too close, but close to on time.

00:11:30--> 00:11:37

And this is an example that involves Salah for Dean, a UB

00:11:38--> 00:11:45

the man who re conquered Jerusalem for the Muslims. And the crusades, were the Crusades.

00:11:46--> 00:11:48

The Crusades were armies

00:11:50--> 00:12:03

made up by the Pope. Now you and I know that Catholicism or the Catholic faith ruled Europe for 1000 years. For 1000 years.

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

Pope's were the kings of Europe.

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

They ruled Europe.

00:12:14--> 00:12:19

So the whole of Europe then was Catholic, Christian Catholic.

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

And

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

the pope decided

00:12:26--> 00:12:43

that they were going to take back jerusalem jerusalem was in occupied was an occupied Jerusalem and was inhabited by by Muslims and by Jews and by Christians also, just like today, but they wanted Majid opposite for themselves. They wanted to Jerusalem for themselves, because of historic reasons. Of course.

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

When Salafi didn't, you became on the scene and Salahuddin he was not an Arab. He was a non Arab was a good when he was because he was a Muslim. He was a good

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

Christian, which is

00:13:02--> 00:13:09

the people who don't have a land with being fought by other powers in the Middle East.

00:13:11--> 00:13:24

with an emphasis upon not giving them any land, and yet they they come from that area come from the northern Iraq, that is the land, the north of Iraq, but part of the land after colonialism out of the cut up the middle east part of the Kurds, Kurdistan

00:13:25--> 00:13:33

fell in the area of Iran, part of it fell in the area of Iraq, and part of it fell in the area of Syria.

00:13:36--> 00:13:42

And none of these three states wanted to give them back the area which was given to them by by the colonialists.

00:13:44--> 00:13:52

So, Salahuddin a UB is Eastern of his own, I'm sure they are lectures on him on the internet.

00:13:53--> 00:14:02

He started uniting the Muslims, because by the time he came on the scene, the whole of the Mediterranean Sea, all the all the areas around the Mediterranean Sea,

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

was already conquered by the Crusades.

00:14:07--> 00:14:19

That taken Jerusalem, and they were conquering Jordan, and Syria, and coming down to Egypt. They wanted the whole levant they call it the Levant, that whole area around them, but they wanted that

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

to become part of your

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

to be under the control of the Pope.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

And,

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

as always,

00:14:34--> 00:14:43

when the crusade is conquered, since that time, and before they came, they knew they conquered because they saw that Muslims were divided.

00:14:44--> 00:14:51

The Muslim world world was divided into Emirates, pockets pockets of land every one of his own Amir

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

and

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

the Crusaders

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

decided

00:15:02--> 00:15:06

that they were going to finally

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

a mess the biggest army

00:15:11--> 00:15:21

because they saw Salahuddin was taking back their land inch by inch. And they realized Salahuddin was a formidable opponent. They had to do something strong

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

to be able to overcome.

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

And the people used to de la the new crazy, you know,

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

crazy man.

00:15:34--> 00:15:43

You can take on the whole of Europe. You can take on the crusades, they really hold off on length and damaged locks. Are they going to suit us?

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

Basically a robber baron lasala

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

the sacking

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

they told him they warned him they said to them Rome

00:15:54--> 00:16:05

is like the sea was no shores to begin to varsities it's a it's a seat in other words, the resources they have is as big as the ocean

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

doesn't renew

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

images of what is happening today.

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

Of course, we have superpowers with that kind of firepower.

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

Oceans with no shores

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

but Salahuddin didn't listen

00:16:27--> 00:16:32

they told him you fighting a disunited oma, they're gonna you you are you are leading a disunited room.

00:16:33--> 00:16:44

But Salahuddin said, this fight was not a fight for Jerusalem. This was a fight for the deen itself for Islam.

00:16:45--> 00:16:49

And he said he had to take up, he had to take up this fight.

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

A lot of the scholars

00:16:55--> 00:16:58

in Damascus, because they heard that

00:16:59--> 00:17:04

this was going to be the biggest Crusade, it was going to be led by the King of England

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

and the King of France

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

and the king of Germany.

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

So you can understand this, this was a very serious operation. This was the old of the so called Western world

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

against a divided

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

Islamic world already had to slay

00:17:31--> 00:17:46

the King of England was Michael the Lionheart, King of France and the king of of Germany was Frederick Barbarossa. He was called Barbarossa because he had a red beard Barbarossa means or a beard.

00:17:49--> 00:18:03

And because the Kings themselves were leading armies, the armies were extremely large. It is said that the army of the German King Barbarossa was 300,000 consists of 300,000 men swannanoa.

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

And when the scholars heard this, and the Mujahideen that was with Salahuddin when they heard

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

that this army was 300,000.

00:18:16--> 00:18:48

They said, No, we're not gonna fight. We said sorry, you're not going to be slaughtered by by these people. And the army was so big that they, the the Navy of these three nations could not bring them on boats, and on merchant ships. So the German army was at the vanguard of the army had to come over land, and they will come via Turkey, and via Syria, and then down into the Levant, into the coastal areas of the Muslim.

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

Community. It says

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

that, for how to do Alena beheren, whatever

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

they came to us on land agency, there was no escape.

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

They came on land and on see,

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

let me move up.

00:19:14--> 00:19:22

And bunnies Lane was in the same situation when they were confronted with this with the rates in front of them. And the army found behind him.

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

People said, well, boosah What now?

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

What are we gonna do now?

00:19:30--> 00:19:33

You lie to us. You said you're going to take us

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

to the promised land. How are we going to cross the sea?

00:19:39--> 00:19:45

So Nabi Musa said catala in Nairobi say add. He said, don't worry.

00:19:46--> 00:19:52

On the country do contrary to what you were saying. in Nairobi, I have with me, my lord.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

Say, He will guide me Subhanallah and that's also why is this what we should say in our daily life?

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

anything happens in our homes, without jobs without whatever income.

00:20:06--> 00:20:12

In my lobby, I have with me, my Lord and if I was in my Lord, who can be against me.

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

So allows me to fulfill the promise see open.

00:20:18--> 00:20:32

So Salahuddin saw this as not as a challenge, not as a, he saw it as a taste of, of Islam. He saw it as the test for the Muslims, the 300,000 men, fully armed

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

with all the latest weaponry at the time.

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

It happened that

00:20:42--> 00:20:45

now we're looking back at history, what happened?

00:20:46--> 00:20:54

Was the Muslims victorious. Yes, they will do but how do they? How do they get victory? It is said that Barbarossa

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

who told his son when he left Germany,

00:20:59--> 00:21:03

that I want to reach Jerusalem dead or alive.

00:21:04--> 00:21:09

You must see to it, that I will reach the Holy Land dead or alive.

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

So what happened was,

00:21:13--> 00:21:24

you know, in Europe, there's a lot of ice and ice and snow in winter. And this journey that took took place in July, just like the middle of summer in Europe.

00:21:26--> 00:21:40

But that was the time that the snow that collected on the mountains melted and came down in reverse and flow down into the sea. So if you said does this army, the German army had to cross a very shallow River.

00:21:42--> 00:21:49

But because it was summer already, it was very hot. And the water was ice cold.

00:21:50--> 00:21:59

Very hot weather, ice cold water, and Barbarossa and his army. They were dressed in armor, very heavy armor.

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

So when you cross the stream, he fell off his horse.

00:22:06--> 00:22:11

He fell off his horse, he fell into the cold water. And he says the water wasn't even

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

up to your size.

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

But they couldn't lift him we fell into this vehicle and he was already 70 years old, over 70 years old, an old man and he died.

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

He died.

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

Any son? They told us on your promise to your father, you will thank you.

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

They don't realize what did they do? They boiled his body.

00:22:38--> 00:22:43

They put it in that big vet with vinegar to preserve it.

00:22:45--> 00:22:49

But of course the body gives off gases as it

00:22:50--> 00:23:04

disintegrates. So this this thing blessed this VAT burst with the king's body inside. And so many people were affected by illnesses because of the smell and because whatever it may be.

00:23:06--> 00:23:16

So the army from 300,000 by the time they reach Syria, they were only 1000 1000 300,000 1000 lift

00:23:18--> 00:23:24

disease got ahold of them, cold got all of them, the heat code all of them all these.

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

So

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

this is how allows for home Watada.

00:23:37--> 00:23:38

redirect history,

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

in order to favor those which he wants to fail

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

in order to give victory to those that you want to give victory to.

00:23:48--> 00:23:53

Would you have imagined the problems that Sam would have been serving towards being such a paltry few men in mucker.

00:23:55--> 00:24:02

Setting second by the Quraysh with the biggest army in Arabia, with the leaders of the Arabian Arabs

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

was the chance.

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

Last one

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

so never say never,

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

never say never know.

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

Don't think we are weak and we only 2 million we only 3 million we only you know we don't have this and we don't have that. And we are divided.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

Don't give up all you do what you have to do. When you do it well.

00:24:32--> 00:24:41

And you look after either you don't give up hope. And you make two alpha Muslims and victory will come. We promised victory our promises.

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

Promises

00:24:45--> 00:24:52

50 of you Ahmad will be equal to one of them closer to the to the end of the world

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

which means the Muslims will be strong panela

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

So

00:25:06--> 00:25:13

either arada love Omron Allahu Ababa we bring about the condition

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

allows wahana Tada

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

create the conditions

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

for the victory of the boost seems to take place.

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

And of course, we know Salahuddin, over random. They were no match with celebrity.

00:25:33--> 00:25:43

And so that had been showed what a gentleman he was. When you conquered Jerusalem, didn't kill anybody. He gave the Jews the freedom he gave the Christians the freedom.

00:25:44--> 00:25:49

He fed the soldiers of the crusades, because they were dying of hunger and starvation.

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

But he was a serious man.

00:25:57--> 00:26:02

He said when he sat in his tent at night, camping outside the city of Jerusalem,

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

laying siege to the city.

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

He never smiled.

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

For months, he never smiled with a smile on his face.

00:26:14--> 00:26:19

They asked him to show our series this man was the sales arsenio Salahuddin.

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

Yeah, me

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

smiling.

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

He said, How can I smile?

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

When our first pillar is in the hands of the

00:26:36--> 00:26:37

candidate

00:26:38--> 00:26:48

until Allah gives us victory, I will not karnala this was this was the seriousness the see they were serious about the issues that affected the Muslims. Very, very serious.

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

So

00:26:54--> 00:27:03

today, and the idea was the purpose of the Crusaders was what to conquer Lebanon and Jordan, Palestine and eventually to conquer Egypt.

00:27:04--> 00:27:12

Because Egypt was always central to the Middle East, we had Egypt, you in a very, very strategic position

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

from day one.

00:27:16--> 00:27:17

And

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

of course,

00:27:22--> 00:27:23

the river succeeded

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

and allows for how not Allah

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

had given all this back to the oma or Mohamed Salah loving on yourself. So today we said in our situation today,

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

again, history will repeat itself.

00:27:43--> 00:27:50

Believe it or not brothers and sisters, we looking at a time similar to the time of Salah,

00:27:53--> 00:27:59

weak Muslims, and a strong enemy, not only a strong enemy, a very, very strong enemy.

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

anybody tells you that there is a Muslim country or the Muslims can can overcome or can beat. Okay, when a war against

00:28:09--> 00:28:18

the superpowers today, you love to joke. It's impossible. We are so divided. We don't have what we need to have

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

them's Obama.

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

So

00:28:27--> 00:28:35

if we look at the time allotted, even Kathie Lee says that he loved by that time, was extremely weak.

00:28:37--> 00:28:47

It was alpha, but it didn't control it. All the Muslims, you were just Holly for a name. Muslims are divided. There was one halifa in Baghdad.

00:28:49--> 00:28:56

There was different rules for different states. Every rule had its own state Damascus had its own rule its own halifa.

00:28:58--> 00:28:59

And

00:29:02--> 00:29:07

those Muslims thought and especially their own Lama thought that the best thing to do is to

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

compromise, discuss,

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

talk

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

can interface can't beat them, join them.

00:29:21--> 00:29:24

What are what are the results of all these

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

weak and weaknesses

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

that we present to our enemies

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

will remain weak.

00:29:35--> 00:29:38

Even if he says he urges, he says and the lucea

00:29:39--> 00:29:43

was divided. Spain was also divided into a number of states.

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

Each state had its own army

00:29:47--> 00:29:50

and each Amir called himself Amira mcweeny

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

finds me off of even South Africa and we have so many organizations. Every organization has a president

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

Some even a vice president Some even if First Vice President and second vice president.

00:30:08--> 00:30:16

See what, even 100 years time our children leaders in and say, you only 2 million people in Cape Town are only at three presidents of one small organization.

00:30:18--> 00:30:24

Why don't you be the president and vice president and a second vice chair and a second vice president. This was the time of the

00:30:28--> 00:30:34

of Andalusia, Spain. Same situation. Same was in Baghdad, same was in the Arabian Peninsula.

00:30:35--> 00:30:36

So when we look at our own

00:30:37--> 00:30:43

national situation, the first thing we say is, well, we were divided. We have so many organizations.

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

And every organization has its own leader.

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

And every leader thinks that he's the best leader,

00:30:51--> 00:30:55

and so forth and so on. Anybody want is called a president can only

00:30:59--> 00:31:07

be why was it like that? Why is it like that? It was like that at the time of Salahuddin because

00:31:09--> 00:31:12

the desire of men is always to have power.

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

Sometimes power overcomes a man.

00:31:20--> 00:31:24

And power overcomes power blinds us to piano.

00:31:28--> 00:31:35

We don't realize that the greatest responsibility which is placed is placed upon those

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

who stand in front

00:31:39--> 00:31:40

will assume leadership

00:31:41--> 00:31:46

that they are going to answer for every single but that they had done or had not done

00:31:49--> 00:31:57

and what the intentions were in what they were doing. So similar to the time of Salahuddin, we have

00:31:59--> 00:32:04

all these divided power bases that are constantly at loggerheads with each other

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

and constantly looking for support. And they will do and sometimes you find that some of them will do anything with the people say in order for them to be remaining power in order for them to be famous. The other thing

00:32:20--> 00:32:29

that was Salahuddin every time he wanted to be the most famous one, whether it was the one sitting about that, or the one sitting in Damascus, everybody wanted to be

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

the top dog.

00:32:35--> 00:32:38

So we find ourselves in this dilemma.

00:32:39--> 00:32:40

Yemen is

00:32:42--> 00:32:44

being oppressed by Saudi Arabia and

00:32:45--> 00:32:46

UAE.

00:32:47--> 00:32:56

There are hidden guys being oppressed, the wiggers in China, the Syrians by their own people, the Egyptians by their own people,

00:32:57--> 00:33:03

things are really bad. And we recognize that things are really bad.

00:33:04--> 00:33:07

But were they as bad as it was in the past? No.

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

Not

00:33:11--> 00:33:17

there are some states in the Muslim world that there's lots of money, lots of firepower, but he's still very weak.

00:33:18--> 00:33:22

So when we look at our circumstances

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

of the oma today

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

we're looking

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

at the beginning of something

00:33:36--> 00:33:37

there are certain

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

areas

00:33:41--> 00:33:43

within Abu Salah emphasized

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

and talked about more than others.

00:33:48--> 00:33:54

Listen carefully. There are areas within Avi Sala Salaam spoke about in his a hadith

00:33:57--> 00:34:00

more than he spoke about other geographical areas.

00:34:02--> 00:34:06

These areas are maybe sometimes spoke a lot about Iraq.

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

Hassan

00:34:10--> 00:34:17

Hassan is modern day Afghanistan. And that area, Ronald Lannister, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan all those years

00:34:20--> 00:34:24

ago spoke about Iraq, Afghanistan.

00:34:27--> 00:34:32

Then evisa salam said that the black banners will come from Afghanistan.

00:34:35--> 00:34:38

An army okay the black banner.

00:34:39--> 00:34:43

They will come from exactly why somebody will come from that part of the world.

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

Then the Prophet mentioned a sham a lot. Syria.

00:34:49--> 00:34:55

Lebanon he mentioned that part. charm of course includes Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Jordan.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

That is called a shout out at today.

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

We have we just say, Cydia but in fact embraces the whole, the whole all the countries along that stretch of the Mediterranean coast.

00:35:10--> 00:35:15

So these are the areas that the Navy Salam emphasized

00:35:16--> 00:35:24

in spoke about Iraq, for Assad, who as we know, today have Aniston and the surrounding areas

00:35:25--> 00:35:55

and Sham, the Levant. And you can you can almost see the churning up of activity in these areas. Look at the mayhem in Jordan, look at the mayhem in Palestine, look at the mayhem in Syria, look at the mayhem in Iraq, look at what's happening in Afghanistan. And look what's happening in prophecy samosa refer to Yemen also spoke a lot about Yemen, all the places he spoke about is in total chaos.

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

For us, I mean those countries, they have no future.

00:36:03--> 00:36:13

Like Salahuddin like the countries of the cut up in Eastern, the little small kingdoms no future everybody wanted power for themselves.

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

So inshallah next week we will speak about

00:36:22--> 00:36:29

why did this study so Salah emphasize these countries and what is happening today

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

in these countries

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

that

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

will be true

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

to what they've said.

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

Either Aurora de la who Ameren

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

Hey yellow

00:36:50--> 00:36:52

Allah to bring about change

00:36:53--> 00:37:15

to the benefit of Muslims. He creates the circumstances for the change. And in the creation of those circumstances, it may look as if it's a dead end road but it's not. So there are lots of other inshallah cuantas and the oma success, what we do, success is already waiting for us we just need to become

00:37:16--> 00:37:24

What does Allah want from us in the loader fuel and the Latina Evan? Allah Swan is a protector of those who have a man

00:37:26--> 00:37:28

any man is based on? Hello.

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

My dear brothers and sisters.

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

We know that

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

we know that for everything besides our D. When it comes to Islam, we think we born Muslim so we are born with knowing everything.

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

fooling yourself you think like that.

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

Mm. Azadi said Allah Allah.

00:37:55--> 00:37:59

Allah He man who Bella Island la yaku.

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

Eman faith without knowledge. Impossible.

00:38:05--> 00:38:09

Impossible. How could you believe in all and you don't know he's

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

always messenger was?

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

What?

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

Bella Iman.

00:38:23--> 00:38:36

And to have knowledge without practice is madness. Is it possible for a man to have knowledge but he doesn't practice the deen of Allah, Primetime or any knowledge for that matter?

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

He has knowledge but he doesn't he doesn't practices knowledge doesn't carry out his knowledge that implement this knowledge. So Mr. Alexander give that we have both a man

00:38:47--> 00:38:48

and this should be out

00:38:50--> 00:38:51

program of life.

00:38:53--> 00:38:59

That we either blow your mind strong, we must build our mind strong and we will build our islands strong

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

and we must

00:39:03--> 00:39:04

seek

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

knowledge which is

00:39:08--> 00:39:12

in line with the Koran and sooner Muhammad Sallallahu

00:39:14--> 00:39:17

aleikum wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala.
