The previous two weeks, we
discussed the history of what is today called the modern Middle East. And we trace the history from 1914 to 2014, which is exactly 100 years.
And today inshallah, because it's also
the week of this investment from Israel, people are encouraged not to invest in Israel, and encouraged to speak out against the state of Israel,
not so much against the state of Israel, but against the behavior of the Zionists in the oppression of the rest of the population being a Christian or Muslim in
what is called Bella sham. So I thought it's important maybe that we carry on with the last week's two lectures or the week before the weeks before and today concentrate on giving a summary of the history of Jerusalem.
First of all, when the NaVi Salalah harder sell them
and when the Quran refers to Sharma
it does not they did not refer to modern day Syria, because modern Syria with each center as Damascus is called a sham. Translated from Syria into Sham, but when the Nabi allyssa salam referred to Sham, he referred not only to modern Syria, but he included vital Makkah for Jerusalem included Jordan, modern Jordan flooded Palestine, the whole of Palestine, and the entire region of the Levant they tie the entire region of the Levant starting from Syria right down to the Suez Canal, the Nabi aleksa salaam, referred to that whole region as Billa, Sham
or the land of Sham, the land to the left North land to the north, west of Arabia. Sham means, the West, western side of the left side of the Arabian Peninsula,
or the countries bordering on the Mediterranean Sea, or the countries bordering on the Mediterranean Sea. And in the time of the NaVi Sala Solomon reference in haddie, ahaadeeth and reference in the Quran, to the beloved a sham, the center of the Sham is beta.
or beta lung disease also known that is considered to be the center of beloved a sham.
The verse in the Quran Of course, very famous verse which you all know, which refers to be like a sham is the verse of the Quran first verse of Surah Surah where Allah says, similar Han Rahim Subhana Allah the Astra the Abba de les laminal magical harami lol magical axillary Baraka Hola, the Nuria home in Haryana Tina in the home was Samuel elbasy.
Another very famous verse quoted Of course, on the night of marriage, we're allowed to 100 Allah says,
Glory be to Allah who carry the seven by night on a night journey from magical harem Illa Allah azza wa jal Haram, which means Makkah to the furthest message at the time was Majid lochsa or Jerusalem
and allows Muhammad Allah says, we had blessed the surroundings of this axon as It examines the further semester allows. you embrace the surroundings of this Masjid and Allah subhanaw taala Of course he is, he is everything and he will seize everything. So if
Allah subhanaw taala says that he had blessed the surroundings of vital vital doctors. What about the blessing of vital McGee's itself? Subhana Allah, Allah talks only about Allah blesses around as you can imagine the blessings and allows mahanta Allah had conferred on Jerusalem as a city itself.
And it is mentioned in the Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam that in Ibiza Salam said that the second place of worship, we know that Allah says in the Quran, in our debating orderliness, let Eb be back Krita mubaraka bajo de Lille alameen Allah says the
place of worship as we know that was built by a beaver iE malissa salam was the house built
in Makkah. And now visa theorem says the second place of worship that was built was
place a place called Magic to lock a battle.
And then it so Solomon said that between the building of the Haram in Makkah, and by tomorrow, this was 40 years, 40 years. The time span between the building of the two muskets, was 40 years between May two, the Kaaba and the masjid at Jerusalem.
And magic rocks for Jerusalem became the focal point of Jewish worship allows mahanta designated to the Bani Israel that the Qibla will be Jerusalem and we know that right up to the enemies of Salam coming to Medina allows behind he always, always add this anchoring always add this love and
hope that allows a hunter will change the Tabler from jurusan to mock and we know that it was changed during his stay in in Medina.
And then at least Allah Salam says
in a hadith narrated in Sahih Muslim
that we may use to make the following to Allah humma bodycon effi Medina Tina Abadi can official Amina
Salam is to make our last one there are places in our Medina meaning the marina of the Rizal Salaam Madina, munawwara and Nevis. wasallam said, Oh Allah, Allah bless us in our Sham, our shop. And this was at a time when that part of the world that whole part of the world was called the Eastern Roman Empire. It was under Roman rule with an AVI made this law which means that we know we need when we listen to a heartbeat of the Navy.
The Navy had a great love for Bella Duchamp. And as you know that time as I said Belarussian included all of the countries around the Mediterranean starting from Syria at the top or right down to
the Red Sea at the bottom.
So it shows how close and let me say Salaam refers to sharm as our
meaning that Sham that whole area belongs to the Muslims, allowed to other designated that area to be always part of the lens of Islam. And when I say lands of Islam, it means from the time of Adam arisa to salam, under the time of Muhammad sola, it will always be in the hands of those who declare the Kalam of La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah Azza wa sallam Of course in the time but prior to this, we will hear the history of how this land belongs to the Muslim in all those that have not incurred The Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when the nerissa made this dua Allah by Declan a few Medina Tina, whereby you can officially Amina
always made it two or three times
his hope that allows Allah will give this land back to the mystics
In fact, we know
and we read
in the history of the Navy AlHassan that when he was born,
his mother Amina,
and all the people of Makkah I tasted
and witnessed a light that shone from Bella to Samurai to Makkah.
So hon Allah, it was as if Allah mahanta was giving a sign to the people of Makkah that that same light with Sean unbillable Sham by the Buddha who never saw a man at
Rahim Nabil all the prophets that came to that part of the world, that same light have to heed of the worship of the one Allah will also shine in Mecca. Of course we know that 40 years later nappsa salam God ye and the heat of a loss on the spread to that part of the world. And all the battles that took place throughout the first century of Islam was concentrated on regaining Villa Duchamp, Bedlam, mata padlockable. Of course, all these battles, maybe the seller might send all these armies for one purpose to reconquer that land for Islam.
the Nabi sallallahu Sallam on his deathbed
and this is the beginning of the conquest of Jerusalem on his deathbed, the NaVi Salaam at designated Osama bin Zayed to take an army of 700
men to go to Milan to Sham
and to conquer be Latisha.
Neville says I'm of course passed away.
When the army of zayde was about three miles out of Medina Nafisa passed away. Abu Bakr took over the reins, he became the first Khalifa and we know he was the first alpha was abubaker silica and the last one was
nobody was here last week. Neither the week before that. I was here last spring to the wolves. The first calibers Rebecca and I said was the last one.
I'm gonna wait until somebody tells me
Don't give me the name give me maybe who he was way one. What happened to him?
He was from Turkey. Yes. He was exiled to Paris. And he right there. That was the last Khalifa we had. And I said this an unbroken chain of khilafah from the times in abubaker, up to 19.
this is around the corner, measure uninterrupted.
I mean, I'm looking at you know, the the pope had celebrated his one year in office this week sometime.
And I was thinking to myself, what an institution the Catholics have, and how they protected that institution.
the Catholic Church
was at the forefront of breaking down the institution of the caliphate.
And how important it is for Muslims to make the law that allows our listeners give us back the Spirit
because it in khilafah that we see the strength.
I mean, he the pope embodies the strength of the 1.2 billion Catholics. There's no doubt about
and so on top of La Casa de osmani, nasaan. Allina Vitali and so many others embodied
the strength of what we know as Ahmed Islam or the oma Mohamed Salah Allahu alayhi salam. So the name is associated with this army of Anna's aid, and Osama bin Zayed was three miles away.
And, you know, when Obamacare took the reins of power, the first thing that happened to him was that a lot of the tribes around Medina and in the Arabian Peninsula, refused to pay the cartels and abubaker acidic and he declared them cash
out of the fold of Islam. You know, there was a big discussion about this between Omar and Abu Bakar. None of the Sahaba disagreed with our Can you declare people cafe who make Salah go for Hajj fast in the month of Ramadan, c'est la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul II did
they say the kalama they made Salah.
They thought that in the month of Ramadan, they didn't deny the Hajj. But because they denied the payment of Zakat to the battle man, I will bucket together an army and fought them to the otaku con fighter Muslim armor. This armor eventually came to realize that if abubaker didn't take the stand
then tomorrow people will not pray.
Next Sunday will not fast, tougher than Sony would open the door to a lot of breaking down the very principles that Islam came to stand for.
And now the question came up, Islam was under siege in Medina. All these people who refuse to swear allegiance Abu Bakr Siddiq was out to destroy the center of Islam. And Omar advised Abu Bakar to go back to the army of Osama bin Zayed
that the army was needed in to protect Medina.
And Omar Rajaratnam tried to convince and also he said two arms to abubaker
Why don't you change the leadership of the army?
Take Osama generalship away and give it to some older person because his ama was Osama was less than 20 years old, and in his army was the haba with three times his age.
Abu Bakr said, I will defer to that. I will never change the decision taken by the Navy Salallahu alaihe salam, how can I change the decision taken by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he said no the army has gone to sama and Amr you will take the message to Sam and tell him that he will remain the General of the Army needs to go forward to be
under the instructions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this shows how obedience and how there was the left for the instructions of the Navy Salalah Hardison not like today, when we disregard
at our own peril, of course, that is why we in this situation we are today, both locally and internationally because we disregard the student of Hamad sallallahu wasallam, we have created our own little deal, all of us and our little comfort zones, wherever we are in a little cities and our little homes, in a little magic with our little
leaders that we have created our own little pockets of faith, and we worship not according to what Mohamed Salah brought, but according to what our checks tell us in our modern us, and our so called Allah metalla to do. And of course, we are in a situation that we are in today.
So be allowed to Sham
or more particularly, Jerusalem was under Roman rule, at that time, was called the Eastern Roman Empire.
And it was conquered in the time of Obamacare, but abubaker because they didn't live too long. The only rule for two years, and it was almost a duty to see to the handing over of the keys of Jerusalem to the Muslims.
The conquest of Jerusalem took place in 654 ce II don't come next week when asked you say 500 c
634 what a C's type of C stands for.
We got to our system, somebody said
common error and inability to seek to accommodate and not Christian era. But yes, it was 634 years after Nabeel Isa alayhi salatu was Salam. So remember a very important date. Even the talk about Palestine is the 634
some people will refer to multi lochsa or Jerusalem. They call it salifu haramain. You've heard the term phallus of haramain the third of the harems. That is an incorrect
that statement is not a correct statement. In Islam, there are only two harems
harem of Makkah and harem of Medina, there is no cetara gerusalemme or magic laksa is not a third party. Why not? Because the word Haram is a fixed term.
It is a legal term.
in inside these places Makkah and Medina certain things are prohibited which are allowed outside of those areas. For example, if you go to Mecca and Medina you're not allowed for example to
wire in Haram in those cities. You're not allowed to cut down trees, for example, and many other things both in the city of when it's outside those cities. You're allowed to do these things but in other cities, cities Yes.
prohibitions and that's why it is called haram comes from the word haram are prohibited, certain things are prohibited,
whereas baitul Magness or Jerusalem, that doesn't apply there. There are no things in Jerusalem that are prohibited inside Jerusalem and allowed outside. So Jerusalem is not called Haram. You don't say the Haram of Jerusalem or the harem of oxen? No, it is called.
What is it called?
Magic lochsa is not called Haram. It is called out madness. And what does this mean? It means the Holy Land.
This is how it is referred to in Islam. Islam is called the Holy Land.
And that is a very famous, as we know, that we should not visit any places
as a religious journey, except three places
we call the religious journey, only religious journeys are three. One is to Harlem of NACA, the Nexus to the harm of Medina. And the third is to
not the harm of Jerusalem, but out of
all magic. And
of course, today we have changed all that. We have created other places. I've heard the other day that
Muslims went from Cape Town, but 40 or 50 men, to make a to have all the tombs in the Muslim world, to make it to have all the graves in the Muslim world. Because nothing new we know of course, the people come from Durban, they have said that to us, in Cape Town of all the karate kid and all the places where they are tombs and people come here as a tour, they pay money and they and people take them around to to all these places. And people say these are spiritual tours or religious was completely contrary to the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Then we ask ourselves, why our children like that, like that, or health like that, or the Muslim community is in such a terrible problem is we have because of the fact that we have, we are not following the sooner Mohammed tawassul.
And we expect to be
we expect salvation with FM and allows us to learn how to do so. This is not this is not happy. This is in the Quran, Allah says Be obedient to Allah and be obedient to Israel. So you can shout and you can keep yourself abreast and as Africans in this country what I do this, I will do just that, and I will do this waco pm. Wait till you stand in front of Allah. And Allah will ask you, who said you must visit the graves in the tombs of who said,
who said, Who told you that? Who said you must do this? And you must do who don't do that? Yeah, but I thought it was a good thing. So I just thought I will just do it. And who said he must do all the other nonsense that you do?
From where does this come from which prophet that I sent you? I sent you Mohammed Rama. Tell me a prophet, a man who was the merchant only for you but for all of humanity. And this is an example you set for the world. That when you look at the television on a Sunday morning, how is Islam portrayed? Islam is portrayed as a religion
that plays around graves is not a program that goes far away it is not sub grave. Some people are making some kind of action that dance around the graves
of people that you would learn from, they sign in they do this kind of thing. And same thing with Jews do. The Jews do the same thing that they do their The Wailing Wall, they suddenly go like this. Now you see how I'm also doing the flowers on the graves. This is this is the Bala the case of these are lost on us putting on this this community this oma and unless we return back
path of tawheed there is no way we will get Jerusalem back.
and we will see in the Israel loss are taken away so many times from us, gave it back to us when again we came back to the sooner Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Jerusalem as we know are the Levant obey law the Sham as some refer to it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world. We know for example, that one of the most oldest places in Mesopotamia in Iraq, between the Euphrates and the Tigris River. We also know that Marrakech in Morocco, the oldest
University, Tunis of Carolina is situated day in Marrakech. So all these places are places that is ancient in our history.
And the place Jerusalem, of course, is a land is a holy land only for Muslims, but also for Christians and for Jews for the Torah and the hood. And we know of course, also that
Jerusalem was conquered and against I say, for Islam, because that'd be the who was a Muslim, so as to be still a man a Muslim, in nine in the year 917 970, bc 970, before he started sort of Salaam Nobita, who conquered Jerusalem for a long time for the establishment of of La ilaha illAllah. And essentially a man, let me show a man, Allison salon, one of the most magnificant structures in the history of mankind, it was called the Temple of Solomon, was built a way Majid locks is now standing. And we know of course, that never should a man was assisted by Gene.
He was assisted by the gene. And so people infer from this, that the pyramids are suddenly both by Gene because it is impossible for men to have both the pyramids in Egypt.
And for the Israelites for the bernisa eel, the temple of Navy SEAL A man was the pinnacle of the history, when that temple existed long before he saw his time of Nabhi, that wouldn't be still a man. And so for the time, that was the pinnacle of the existence.
But in 722 BC,
Jerusalem was again attacked, then by the Assyrians and the Babylonians.
And you can I want you to get a sense of
what happened prior to Islam and when and what happened to the Jews, Bani Israel. Were the inhabitants of Villa Duchamp prior to the coming of Islam, and the change that Islam brought about these countries. So in 722 BC, the Assyrians and the Babylonians came, and what do they do they expel the money sila, Jews expel them from Jerusalem, and they destroyed the Temple of Solomon, Allah He offered to Salam. And that started what is called the Jewish diaspora.
where Jews would be spread throughout the world, they would not ever place of their own to live. And in 516 BC, it was conquered by the king of Persia. His name was Cyrus Cyrus the Great. And this and that is why there's such a strong link between Persia, Iran and Israel.
I'm talking about prior to 1948.
very strongly, and in fact, the greatest concentration of Jews outside of Israel is still to be found in in Persian.
They said about 200,000 Jews that live in Iran presently. They had very strong very, very strong links because of the fact that the Persian king was so generous to the Jews. He was the most generous King to the Jews allowed them to come back to the land of their birth. And
we're talking about serious lives in about 516 BC, which is about 3000 years ago. And
Cirrus also allowed the Jews to rebuild the temple.
He allowed the Jews to rebuild the temple of NaVi Sulaiman alysus. Eventually, the Persians were conquered again by the Romans.
And the time will be easier later to Salama, the Romans, as you know, in charge of Jerusalem.
Now, when the Romans took charge of Jerusalem, in the time, when I bhrt salatu salam,
they will praise by the Romans for 500 years.
The money saved for 500 years they suffered
and the Roman Empire
and in 17, c
17 years after, I mean, he says accent
into the heavens, the Jews revolted against the Romans. Like we revolted now, like we revolted in a pod now as the Palestinians are revolting against it against the Israelis. The Jews revolted and the revolt was caused by the Romans and eight
Every single Jew, those who are not killed were expelled again from Jerusalem.
Jews were expelled from Jerusalem again for a second time.
Then came and they were not allowed. Those who were left in Jerusalem are not allowed to worship. They will not allow you to worship in Jerusalem. The Muslims and the Amara will have
conquered Jerusalem in the air. Because I've said to you 654 80 634 years after the accent or ascent of Nobita, le Salatu was salam, as a very memorable occasion in the history of Islam.
So fronius, who was the patriarch, the Christian Christian patriarch,
and you know what the Christians did, under the Romans, because the Romans became Christian. And when they became Christian, and they were in charge of Jerusalem, they not only destroyed the Temple of Solomon, they made into a rubbish dump, to show the disdain and disgust for for the Jews. The Christian because they didn't want to accept as as,
as a prophet in light, of course, as the Son of God, Mandala So, the Christian the Jews, the Christians destroyed the Temple of the Jews and made into rubbish.
In 634, Omar in
the army conquered Jerusalem.
fronius was the patriarch of the Roman patch. Like the Pope, we have today of Jerusalem send a message to Medina that he will only hand over the keys of the city. To Omar himself. Omar must come to Jerusalem and take the keys from his own hand. He wasn't going to give it to any army general. So Omar went Amara and his
Savi seven went and but they only had one camel. So Hanalei, murjan, ameerul momineen, king of all the world at the time, conqueror of Jerusalem. He had only one candle, La ilaha illAllah there was no government garage
with Mercedes Benz, and blue lights.
Man was only in one camp.
And he said, what he did he say to me seven, I will walk a mile and you will ride it in you will walk a mile I will ride until we get to Jerusalem isn't very far away from from Medina, I can tell you.
So when they came to the gates of the city of Jerusalem, and Amaro was this, they say there was there were 17 or 17 holes in his tunic that he was wearing.
So when they came to the door of Jerusalem, it was the seven style chances that on the camera
so seven said the Amara menu amiram what we need, you know, I mean, you're going to enter the city now as a conqueror, you are the You are the king Subhanallah you know, I give my chance to you to sit on the camera.
To your chance to ride on the camera. I will walk beside you at the end of the city. So Pamela and of course, the Muslim army was there. And some of them were shocked to see the ruler look as he looked, you know, in rags, walking beside a camel and that time, the
the mode of transport of the elite wasn't camels.
The poor people rode on Camelback, the elite on horseback. So even mode of transport that they had sadaqa 1400 listen back, you know, to go to Parliament. I mean, you can imagine Mr. Mr. Zuma driving a 1400. And there's nothing wrong, by the way, within this industry, but I'm just saying, you know, for maybe on a bicycle, and you laugh, but this is true leadership. This is this is this is what Islam is our son came to conquer the world. So panela so we entered the city, Mashallah, what a man he was. And of course, as you know, the story was that he was offered to pray in the church of the sepulchre. And he refused. And he said, I'm not going to pray inside the church because my own
people come afterwards and say, Well, I'm afraid in the church, you know, we should convert this church into a Masjid sydnor opera outside,
and on our way to the place of the temporary as Where was the temple of maybe Sulaiman
or the place of worship on eviscerator and they showed him on the Temple Mount. And he took off he
asked for his fate or whatever you use any subject cleaning their rubbish dump Omar himself. And of course, they started out being the army started out with the cleaner, and he put his clothes down and he prayed thing. And eventually the place where he prayed was World War is called Magic rocks.
This is a very important point, or magical autocracy, the scope that to manage it on the Temple Mount. One is called axon that is the one with the dome, the beautiful structure. I think it's an optical
doctrine, let's say, seven sides, five sides, how many tries
to cram. So I try to believe it is actually built by the Romans in time of
Yeah, camera zoom is when they rolled from Damascus. And the real message in the magic that is in contention, the magic that the that the Jews want to destroy is not magic. It is a magic on the edge, the big magic
that is the machine. They believe that the Temple of Solomon was built there. That is the magic that was built by the instructions of Mr.
ruddy law. So what the Jews do is, they always show us when they show the mountain Temple Mount, they always refer to the to the to machine, all the photographs will show you. That is not
the magic that was built on top. That is not the magic incantation. If you break that down tomorrow, it shouldn't worry the most is much
the magic that was birthed and has been standing since the time Walmart
is that magic, magic Walmart which is in the corner. Next to that match. It was the place where the nebby are Islam and
guide the Buddha when he went on the journey through the seven heavens to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And the managing Jerusalem remained in Muslim hands from 634 to 1099 ad for 465 continuous unbroken years, from the time of Rama right up to 1099 to slim remained in the hands of Muslim Central What happened?
What happened in the 1099?
Where's my school, my stories are sitting on the side of the image. So I should look on the side of the image. What happened. Take a guess what happened in the year 1099. The Crusades, see all the historians on this side of the magic Mashallah
the Crusaders came and of course the Crusaders were just a bunch of hoodlums, criminals, Englishman Frenchman and from Europe who decided that they want to make war. And they didn't they didn't only come to my goal in the Levant in Sham, they can make war right through Europe wherever they came, they made war. They came from France. And as they walked and traveled, they made war throughout and eventually they came to Jerusalem and they conquered it in the year 1099. And they rolled it until 1187 for 88 years.
The Jews is now in charge of Jerusalem for how long but 65 years.
So it ideas and it ideas allows fatherless in Salahuddin ubu as a kid is general he was from Kurdistan,
which is an area part of northern Iraq, also a nation a stateless nation. Part of the population is in Iran, parties in Iraq and part of it of course is in his in Turkey.
And he conquered Jerusalem and 1187 What man
the night before he
and of course you know the crusades, they killed every single man, woman and child who are Muslim and Jews in Jerusalem.
they slaughtered them for the sword. They didn't take cactus they killed every single Muslim with a sword every single Jew. They only spent the crutches because they were Christian. And they sent a message to the pope at the time to say we're clean Jerusalem down a land from the
from the heathens
this was the Christian army crusade was a Christian on the blessing of the pope at the time
to fight the heathens because Muslims and Jews were with the heathens because I don't know why we were put into the same category that we recognize maybe Rizal is a salon but
allows him to tell us in the Quran that when it comes to Muslims, everybody will gang up against against the Muslims
Salah Salahuddin a you became
an Erie conquered
and just his alma mater before him when he conquered Jerusalem.
He dropped a covenant called the almighty covenant.
The armory covenant, a copy of the covenant, the original copy of the covenant is still found in the if you go to Jerusalem, go to the church
on the northern side of the city, in there you will find the original manuscript
called the armory covenant, which gave freedom to all the religions in Jerusalem to worship and particularly armor. Ron
one of the clauses in there was not only to allow them to worship but to protect their places of worship
Subhan Allah and all the Jews that had lived the city of Jerusalem were allowed to pass it nama to come back. The same was Salahuddin Ella up when he come to Jerusalem the night before he conquered. He was sitting in his tent and his army generals were sitting around him and they were happy because tomorrow inshallah they were going to take the city
and Salahuddin didn't smile, he says Nassim Sir, you know, we so happy tonight Mashallah. Tomorrow we are going to walk into Jerusalem he said, until the city's in the hands of the Muslims, I cannot smile.
Muslims are not allowed to smile until this city,
the city the first people of the Muslims,
a city that the Prophet loves so much that he never saw in his lifetime. I cannot smile until the city comes back into the land of the Muslims.
And the land of Jerusalem was a Muslim man from 1187 until
1917 or General Allenby, the English general marched into Jerusalem.
And I must say
general anime followed the example of cinema America, USA overall, to conquer this city in the 1970s, which was, what
after the conquest of Salahuddin that he also walked into the city. He didn't get to his car, whatever mode of transport, you know, he walked into the city, out of respect for the city. And so since 19 117, until now 2014, it is still out of the hands of the Muslims 997 years
of all the time are 14 centuries, 97 years, we have lost the city of Jerusalem.
And we've lost the city of Jerusalem. Because and I'm not just going to blame the British part historically. So as I said last week, because of the fact that we will double cross so many times by the British, unfortunately, we know the Americans have done a lot of damage in the modern era. But it was the British up to 1917 that plotted and planned to remove not only Jerusalem from the rule of Islam, but the all of the Levant, Syria, to Jordan to Lebanon. In fact, as I said, last week, Lebanon was created by the by the English, they created a country out of nothing. They said we must create a small piece of land for the Christian Arabs, and they called it they call it liberal. But
it was last week's lecture.
Just to repeat what I said last week,
the city of Jerusalem and also the whole of Palestine
was taken away from the Muslim because of the promises the English had made to the Muslims. The first promise was made by Sir Mack Brown who was the British High Commissioner in Egypt. And he had told the sheriff of Makkah, don't worry, you join us to fight
the Ottoman Empire, your fellow Muslim Brothers, and we will make you the halifa and we'll give you all of the Muslim lands and you will become the alpha.
Of course when the time came for them to end it over. We know and I gave you these three they gave one of the sentencing in the Jordan they gave to one of his sons Jordan was given to one of his sons his youngest son, the other son got Iraq and the third son God maka and of course, the only successful one was there were the Ashima Kingdom of Jordan is sold in and I say as I said last week, it's unbelievable that that country is ruled by a foreigner. Since the time of since 1970, not to doubt the British system one of the sons of the Sharif of mokopuna will say now you in charge of this country, we gave it to the country
ilaha illAllah. He still always repeats itself. Alright, so then the second one, the second
Double crossing of the British was when the British ambassador and the Russian ambassador in the French ambassador had a meeting in France. They took a map and they drew lines around and said, well, when this was over, this is what the map is gonna look like, are we giving
Turkey to the Russians? Are we giving Syria to the French, Lebanon to the French and giving Palestine and Saudi Arabia and Iraq to the British, and the final nail in the coffin of Palestine was the Balfour Declaration, when the British government decided in 1914, that
they will gain to give Palestine to the Zion international Zionist movement. And this is because chime Wiseman was a Jew and lived in England had invented the most important ingredient of gunpowder. Without this ingredient.
what is the name of it acetone, acetone, chime Wiseman at a factory making acetone.
And as at the end, the war was coming. And the British government said to him, Look, you'll have to produce 1000 times more acetone than before because we are facing a very big wall. And they asked him how much he will charge because he wasn't really a multiple India at the time. And he said, I don't want money. I want Palestine.
I will give you a much as much as eternity one mentioned, they just took the land just like that sign is signed a letter buffalo to sign a declaration to say that we the British government have agreed that after the war is over, Palestine will go to the Zionist Federation. And as we know, the greatest opposition to Palestine came from the Jews themselves. There's only one Jewish cabinet minister member in the British cabinet. And he was the only vociferous voice that spoke out against establishing a Zionist state in Palestine. And his reason was that the Jews had a very good relationship with the Muslims. Muslims had always been kind and good to the Jews always allowed them
every facility for them to build their synagogues, to practice their religion, and so forth, in every Muslim country in the world.
And he said that this will bring chaos and enmity between Jews and Christians, Jews and Muslims. And it's exactly what happened. So when we talk about Jerusalem, and we talk now, because we are the days now when, when there are many conferences going on,
on Syria, and on Jerusalem is one item, which is very important.
And some research for those of you who do research and read to read up on
why what happened? Why did we lose Jerusalem when we lost? What was the state of the Muslims at the time when we lost it?
When we can go back to 1917. And we will know exactly the state of the Muslims in 1970.
We were at our lowest, not in terms of what we out of the world in terms of our faith in terms of the commitment to our faith. And before the term Salahuddin go and read and find out and look at the state of the Muslims presently.
And then you can link what is happening in Syria and what is happening in Gaza and all and what is happening in Egypt
to the level of Eman and commitment that Muslims have to the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Allah.
We knew we had our last one tells us so many places,
that your success lies in our lives. That our victory only comes when we submit ourselves to the pod.
The dean of Muhammad Allah, may Allah subhanaw taala guidance inshallah and our children back to the time of Muhammad, Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
