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

Last week, we gave the first lecture on developments in the world for the last 100 years from 1914

00:00:51--> 00:01:09

to 2014, exactly 100 years. And we said that the greatest happening that happened in 1914, that affected not only the world, but affected the Muslim world as well was the Great War, to score the Great War. We know it as the First World War.

00:01:10--> 00:01:20

And we said that the British had made three agreements, separate agreements with regard to the Muslim world, Muslim Arab world at the time.

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

And we will know and we will learn that the British in terms of non Muslim empires that impacted upon the Muslim world, the British did the most damage to the Arabs and Muslims, from Malaysia, across Bangladesh, across India, across Pakistan, throughout the Middle East, throughout Africa, people who did the most damage to Arabs and Muslims with the British, and inshallah we learn, we beginning to learn how they shaped the Muslim world since 1940.

00:02:02--> 00:02:33

And as I said, last week, the British was the Empire. They were the Empire to be reckoned with, prior to the First World War, not America, America was on the sidelines. America didn't want to get involved in world politics. And it was the Brits that, as they say, rule the waves, the sun never sets, as they say, on the British Empire. And the reason for that as a last week was that God didn't trust the British in the dark. So he didn't allow the sun to set on the British Empire. But be that as it may,

00:02:34--> 00:02:39

there were three agreements made the same time. The first agreement, as I said, was the agreement.

00:02:40--> 00:03:15

Women have is this war was going on. And the objective of the British in the First World War, as far as the Arab world was concerned, was to unseat the Khalifa that was sitting in Turkey at the time. That was the last 30 years. And I must understand my dear brothers and sisters, that khilafah was a philosopher that was unbroken, that Slava did an unbroken chain, starting from abubaker as a deed of the electron from Abu Bakr as Siddiq, rather than the hill effect, that control the Muslim coma was unbroken,

00:03:16--> 00:04:01

until 1924, until 1924, the last halifa was unseated. And we'll come to that inshallah later. But it again, let's quickly look at the three agreements that I spoke about the two agreements. The one was was sir McMahon, he was the commissioner, high commissioner of the British sitting in Egypt in Cairo. And he had written a letter to the sheriff of NACA, Sharif Hussein, to tell him that if Makkah, and the Muslims equally encourage the Arab world, to fight with the British, to destroy the hillfort, then they will make him the next Khalifa of the Muslim world. British knew, of course, that he was interested in this, he wanted to become the Khalifa, the Sharif of society wanted and

00:04:01--> 00:04:36

the British, of course, work on that, because the greatest character that you can dangle in front of a political politician is to offer a politician power. And once politicians are power, as you noted, in your own country, once they have power, they are extremely reluctant to give up that power. No matter if you boo them from the heaven's name and what you do once they have the grip the teeth into power and any politician. And unfortunately, power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely in any sense of the word. Only the pious, the God fearing

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

that power can corrupt.

00:04:41--> 00:04:46

So the agreement that was signed in France, this was in 1914.

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

Before they come to

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

Britain and Russia, and France, sat around a table three ambassadors, and they had a map in front of them, that map is still available.

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

They took a pen and they drew the lines on the map as to what will happen are they will cut up the Arab world and divided amongst France and Britain and Russia. And that agreement was called the Sykes picot agreement, the name of the British ambassador and the name of the French ambassador.

00:05:22--> 00:06:04

That was a secret agreement. But unfortunately, the secrecy of that agreement didn't continue for very long. Because there was a change of government in Russia, the czarist government was overthrown, the kings of Russia was overthrown. And the Bolsheviks what we know today is the communists. They took over power, and they wanted to expose the corruption in the Saudi government. So they brought this document to light this document that was signed in Paris, between the Russians and the British and the French, and became world views reported on the London Times and The New York Times, and the headings was secret negotiations exposed. So now they added the new that is called

00:06:04--> 00:06:43

the promises made by McMahon setting in Canada on behalf of the British government. Yeah, the British government was at the same time with a French and the Russians carving up the Arab world. They promised Hussein that they will give him the whole of the Arab oil intact and you will be the Khalifa here. And when the Arabs came to know about that they so naive, you know, Muslims are very naive. We also see a very naive, we have this naivete about us we we tend to say inshallah Masha Allah and inshallah tau you know, don't worry, things will cover it. And we sit in this situation 300 years we sitting like this. And the whole Muslim world is like that's why we say there are no

00:06:43--> 00:07:04

suicides in the Muslim world. People don't suffer from depression in the Arab world. Because you know, people say inshallah Masha, Allah hamdulillah. And, you know, that's the end of the story. And that's a fact. saccular interfaculty historical fact. They know suicides, Adams and Muslims, particularly if they don't commit suicide, why not because they have faith in allows for

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

any case,

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

while the Sykes picot agreement was being signed, while these letters are getting to and fro from mountain bike mount, and the sheriff of Makkah, the rule of Makkah.

00:07:22--> 00:07:26

There was a trade deal going on, about the same land.

00:07:28--> 00:07:32

And this deal was a deal.

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

Regarding the same the same land, as I said,

00:07:39--> 00:07:47

and what was what is the third deal the third deal was at the same time there were talks started in 1914.

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

by the British cabinet, because you know, what the cabinet his

00:07:54--> 00:07:58

cabinet and the government cabinet consists of all the ministers of government

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

and this cabinet.

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

The item on the agenda of discussion was

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

to discuss giving the Zionists Palestine is a homeland for the Jews of the world.

00:08:16--> 00:08:22

British cabinet they didn't have they didn't have nothing. It didn't win the war yet. They were in possession of Palestine yet.

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

Wasn't conquered yet, but they were sitting down and what are they discussing?

00:08:29--> 00:08:33

Giving the Jews a national homeland in Palestine?

00:08:35--> 00:08:46

And who are the Zionists? Why don't say the Jews was designers were asking for this. And what designers designers is Zionism is a movement that started in the latter part of the 19th century,

00:08:47--> 00:08:53

a group of prominent Jews in Europe began what was called the world Zionist Federation.

00:08:55--> 00:09:01

Maybe this is before Hitler, this was before the First World War. Nobody was killed. No, Jesus was right. This was in the 1800s.

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

They started world Zionist Federation, and their main objective was

00:09:10--> 00:09:28

to start a homeland. They didn't know where to get at the time when they started, but they wanted a national homeland for the Jews. The founder of this movement is called fielder and his right hand man was chain Wiseman and we'll hear later about him as well. Eventually, Charles Wiseman became the first president of the State of Israel.

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

In the beginning, when

00:09:36--> 00:09:43

the zinus presented the case of the British cabinet. The British was reluctant

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

to talk about Paris and because they didn't have it yet, but they had Uganda. Uganda was a protectorate of the British and many other countries in Africa in Africa was and they offered Uganda to the Jews. They said there is a country we give you this can imagine. Can you imagine somebody comes and says there is a country with this

00:10:03--> 00:10:28

One thing to weigh in with the other people we will Ugandans at the time, what would they do? That another country sitting there in a small island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean come along and say, yes, of course the the Jews rejected that. And they stuck to their guns that they wanted to be the better person and only 5% of the population of Pakistan would use 95% wearables.

00:10:33--> 00:10:39

So the big question we ask ourselves is, why would the British cabinet consider

00:10:41--> 00:11:01

giving a national homeland to the Zionist? Why would they even go? Why will the British the British have banned Jews from living in Britain for 300 years? 300 years Jews could not come to Britain knows steinbruck, this big change of heart. Why? To lots of theories and reasons given why the British

00:11:02--> 00:11:28

gave a year into the zinus. To discuss the question of giving them Palestine The first reason of course, is political. First is that the British government wonder the support of the Jews for election purposes like the ANC government, pulling out all the stops to get to get votes and the DA and everybody else. So it was first reason was that they ended up of course, we know that the Jews were the richest people at the time in Europe.

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

The second reason is that

00:11:32--> 00:11:40

one of the richest and most powerful Jews in all of England was Jane Wiseman.

00:11:41--> 00:11:48

Wiseman was one of the founding members of the Zionist international Zionist movement was a British citizen.

00:11:51--> 00:11:56

But why was he so much? Why did the British respect him so much? Money is money.

00:11:58--> 00:12:05

Because he wasn't just a rich man chime was on Wiseman wasn't just a rich man. chime Wiseman

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

had a factory that produced acetone.

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

This is before the First World War. acetone is a main ingredient of dynamite and bombs and incendiary devices.

00:12:20--> 00:12:24

You can't produce a ball without acetone in it.

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

And

00:12:27--> 00:12:34

Wiseman was a chemist himself, so he invented acetone. He produced it in his factories.

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

And just before the First World War, he had updated acetone and bought a new acetone product.

00:12:43--> 00:12:51

So now basically, it was a circle of luck that time Wiseman was at the product the right product at the right time.

00:12:52--> 00:13:08

So of course now the first will work came in the British and tell time Wiseman we needed to start production so we want you to produce 1000 times more acetone than what you produce in the past was really good you need in this war that we're fighting with Germany.

00:13:10--> 00:13:14

Now was when was a multi billionaire even in today's terms

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

exceedingly rich.

00:13:18--> 00:13:31

When the British when when the British asked him Okay, fine, you know, we will be asking to produce so much acetone. What are you going to charge us how much you're going to charge us? He said no. Money I don't want. I want

00:13:32--> 00:13:36

you can have enough acetone as you want. All I want us to give me Palestine,

00:13:38--> 00:13:44

Palestine at the time. Yeah. So that was the second reason time Wiseman and isotope number three.

00:13:45--> 00:14:00

And this is very bizarre. And Muslims really don't know this and they don't understand this. This is very bizarre. The third reason is the most bizarre reason. The third reason is that most fundamentalist Christians in the world at the time, supported the Zionists.

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

They were close. They were more pro Zionism the Jews themselves.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

Maybe you can call them extremist Christians.

00:14:12--> 00:14:25

When I was in America, in Britain, we know of course, that up to the Second World War, the Americans were made against Zionism. They were dealing against giving Palestine to the Jews. They said we have in America what we need now. We don't even know that.

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

But the British

00:14:29--> 00:14:43

and we know of course that Charles Lloyd Charles was the Prime Minister. At the time, he was an evangelical Christian. Now why did the Christian support Zionism because the Christians believe that the Bible told them

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

that once Palestine once Palestine is ready, Jesus will come back.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

And the Christians believe that the Jews will eventually will become Christian and Jesus will come back once they've established

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

Palestine got rid of the editor, the Muslims,

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

because remember,

00:15:06--> 00:15:08

the Jews and the Christians had something in common.

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

Jesus was a

00:15:13--> 00:15:21

positive because Allah, Allah says he was neither Jew nor Christian. He was a Muslim. So what's the Brahim? arisa? To Salah.

00:15:22--> 00:15:35

As far as Muslims are concerned, the evangelical Christians the Christians focusing on the Muslim Muslims in figure. They weren't even part of the of the equation Palestine. Far as the Christians were concerned. We support Zionism.

00:15:37--> 00:15:56

So what was the objective? The drive is the objective of this anniversary move on to kill all the Muslims and Arabs in Palestine and to take it over. It was a racist movement. And we need to understand that we are not anti Jewish, but anti Zionists because Zionism was like the apartheid government, putting people in homelands and so forth. And so

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

in the beginning, as I said, Zionism was a completely European movement. Americans didn't like Zionism. They didn't want anything to do with Zionism.

00:16:09--> 00:16:18

They scoffed at it until the tiller came along. Only when Hitler came along, the Americans got on board, and the Americans decided to support the zinus course.

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

for August 1917. Now into the war.

00:16:28--> 00:16:33

The middle end of the 1919 four year war first world war 1917

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

the British cabinet

00:16:38--> 00:16:41

decides to have the final discussion on Palestine.

00:16:45--> 00:16:54

And in this discussion of the cabinet, there was only one Jewish member of the cabinet at the time, one Jewish member, his name was Edwin Samuel Montague.

00:16:55--> 00:17:07

Edwin Simon Montague was the most vocal opponent of giving Palestine to the Zionists. He opposed it completely. He said,

00:17:09--> 00:17:27

Why should we give Palestine to design this for what he said was this this is exactly what she said. This will cause great alarm in the Muslim world who create enemies for us. When we didn't have any enemies. He realized he knew. I mean, we have today even today Yamani, Jews,

00:17:29--> 00:18:04

we have Moroccan Jews. We had literally we had Libyan Jews were Algerian Jews. We've got synagogues in Marrakech in Morocco, for synagogues, in Cairo, Iraqi Jews. In fact, today, there are still some Jews in Iraq, we had a big population of Jews in Iran, we still have Jews in Iran, Jews was scattered all over the Muslim world. And basically, they came to the Muslim world because they got away from the persecution of the Christians because Christians, persecuted Jews, as we know, for example, in England, 300 years Jews are not allowed in England,

00:18:05--> 00:18:10

in Spain, when Assad left Spain, or the Jews who authored push out of Spain.

00:18:12--> 00:18:27

So Edwin Simon mondovi, was against one Jewish member of the cabinet was against the establishment of a homeland for Jews in Palestine. So again, as I say, we are not anti Jews were anti Zionist. Why are we not only Jews, because the Quran speaks about.

00:18:28--> 00:18:46

Grant speaks about differences. They're the people of the book like the Christians, and we have definite ways in which the Quran in the Prophet Alice of Salaam dealt with the Jews and the Christians. And as long as they didn't oppose Islam, and oppress Muslims, they want to be loved we we are supposed to live with it in complete harmony.

00:18:49--> 00:18:50

In fact, the Jews

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

before 1949 before 1948, which was just yesterday.

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

Before 1948,

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

the Minister of Finance of Iraq was a Jew.

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

The Minister of Finance of Egypt was a Jew.

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

This tells you the harmony and the respect

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

and the tolerance that there was for Jews in the Arab world.

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

Because this all changed.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

After the First World War,

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

II went to the British cabinet decided that they were going to allow

00:19:38--> 00:19:45

and they were going to see to it that Palestine was going to be given to the Zionists to establish a national homeland for the Jews of the world.

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

And the man who penned the letter to this effect, his name was Arthur Balfour, and the letter that he wrote

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

on behalf of the British government on the November

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

In the second 1917, he wrote a letter to a man by the name of Baron Rothschild.

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

sure most of you would know this name.

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

Ross Baron Rothschild. Baron Rothschild

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

was probably at the time one of the richest men in the world.

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

The Rothschild Empire was an empire that stretched over a period of 350 years. From the 16 1500s.

00:20:34--> 00:20:41

The Rothschild Empire, they were the people who established the international banking system, the Rebbe system

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

that we still have today.

00:20:46--> 00:20:49

And he was one of the people that wanted Palestine

00:20:51--> 00:21:17

as a homeland for the Jews, and this later they had Balfour outsert. The following he said that the British government views with favor the establishment in Palestine, of a national homeland for the Jews, just like that. Just like one piece of paper 20 lines signed on British Government letter signed by Lord Balfour, and it's called the Balfour Declaration.

00:21:19--> 00:21:24

19 75% of Palestine was Jewish.

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

The British didn't walk into Palestine yet.

00:21:30--> 00:21:52

This demonstrate. So they were busy. They gave one letter to the sheriff of Hussein, they signed another treaty in Paris. And here they were giving the land of Palestine to the Jews. These agreements show wanted demonstrates one thing, what does it demonstrate it demonstrate the duplicity and hypocrisy of the British government.

00:21:54--> 00:22:05

And the double crossing row that the British government played, in particular, against the Arabs and Muslims. Now this is a historical fact I'm not making up anything. I'm not

00:22:07--> 00:22:24

asking me to songwriting when we leave the machine. I'm giving you the facts. All this information is on the internet. All these agreements, you can you can just type it into all these letters you can find in the libraries of the world, all this has been preserved. Nothing of this is come second.

00:22:29--> 00:22:37

Germany was defeated in the First World War and authority Germany was defeated on the 11th of the 11th 1918.

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

Germany surrendered 11th of November 1980s. Germany sorry,

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

immediately what happened?

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

When the war came to an end.

00:22:53--> 00:22:58

First thing that happened was there was international fair minded. There was no food in the world.

00:23:02--> 00:23:06

They say more people died of starvation in the world.

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

Three times more people know we know

00:23:10--> 00:23:21

10 million soldiers died on the battlefields. They say about 50 million people died after that of salvation. Why? Because all the men were killed all the problems were Did

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

you kill the farmer like in Zimbabwe? People saw

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

you kill all the farmers of the world. The world was

00:23:36--> 00:23:42

the second thing that happened because of the fame and because people have food to eat throughout Northern Europe, everywhere.

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

Disease disease comes with family.

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

And what happened was in 1918, and you know about this a Spanish influenza

00:23:56--> 00:24:23

strains disease. People that all over the world from Spanish influenza who just started coughing blood at a temperature they knew died. And there was no cause for infections. People didn't travel by train. People weren't running. People in Cape Town died of the great flu. People will tell you 1918 mass graves were dug up in the workup for the Muslims to be very

00:24:24--> 00:24:40

strange. And that this is this is h one n one is it. Same as the H one n one through that is why when it broke out in China, there was great meme and trepidation in the world because they thought Oh my God, if this starts again.

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

It could wipe out a lot of people 5% of the world's population. 100 million people died. Because of the war. We think that today we are in dire straits. People are dying all over the world. Nowadays imagine first people died of of hunger then people died of the plague.

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

What was called the Spanish plague of Spanish influence.

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

Then after came the depression

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

they just say we should always be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala

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

we mean to Africa we really don't know.

00:25:19--> 00:25:22

Ask rich refugee comes in despite all the problems.

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

I think which we take for granted is we tend to tap open and water comes out electricity may not be working so well from time to time. But you know

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

what, love what darkness, you can't live without voting without food.

00:25:39--> 00:26:13

So the third thing is that the first one will go to about what's called feminism remember discussing with about two weeks ago, feminism, feminism was that women start asserting themselves. Why because we managed to do all the work after the First World War. In fact, I do it. Do you know that after the war with the German government, the Bundestag, passed a law that believed polygamy was allowed. They allowed German men to marry more than one wife. Why? Because there were so many widows, so many women and so few men.

00:26:14--> 00:26:18

So they follow the Islamic. So Pinilla, the law of

00:26:20--> 00:26:23

polygamy was made a law engine

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

just because it is a law.

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

So feminism started, women started setting the job, women had to leave the home to go and work women at up to 1918 homemakers, now we managed to leave the home to go and work.

00:26:41--> 00:26:45

So feminism's obscene feminist movement started doesn't stop anyone.

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

Then

00:26:52--> 00:27:05

significant happening was the Paris Peace Conference, peace conference was now the world was at peace. So all the countries came together in Paris, to discuss what they were going to do, and how they're going to cut up the world after that.

00:27:06--> 00:27:17

That was the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. Everybody, everybody will say the Americans, the Germans, the Russians, the Arabs, who's, in fact, even Sharif Hussein was the,

00:27:19--> 00:27:31

from UK, I travel all the way to Paris, because he was going to push the British promise in the hill out of the Muslim world. That was easy. That was what he wanted from the Paris conference. And then, as you can see, it

00:27:33--> 00:27:40

was the Americans were interested in Palestine, they said, Look, the British want to give Palestine to the Jews, but we did it with it.

00:27:41--> 00:28:02

And what they did was the Americans instituted a commission of inquiry called the king Crime Commission. Once man's name was king, and the other man's name was crane, they said, these two men, to the Arab world to go on the ground and to see what was happening on the ground in the Arab world, particularly in Palestine and to make a recommendation

00:28:03--> 00:28:07

to the peace conference, this peace conference kicked on for the whole year,

00:28:08--> 00:28:24

to come back and report of the peace conference as to what they recommend to happen to Palestine. And recommendation was, and I quote, they said, any establishment of a Jewish homeland in those areas is impossible.

00:28:26--> 00:28:27

Without

00:28:29--> 00:28:38

severely trampling on the rights of the local population. So even that commission made that funding.

00:28:40--> 00:28:45

But America at that time was alone and it was saved. The party was put into the Dropbox and it was forgotten.

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

The peace Congress decided

00:28:50--> 00:29:03

that they were going to give Palestine as a mandate to the British, and the British should look after that eventually, to give it to the Zionist to establish a what we call to the Israel

00:29:06--> 00:29:22

and the Sykes picot agreement, the one that they had in Paris, we drew lines on the map that was called the Treaty of Versailles. Many treaties were signed, but for us the important treaty The design was a feature of the South because it affected the Ottoman Empire, the Ottoman Empire.

00:29:25--> 00:29:26

Now comes

00:29:30--> 00:29:33

what happened to the Arab world remember,

00:29:34--> 00:29:54

up to 1918, we had an unbroken Khalifa from sin Abu Bakr Siddiq Ravi lottoland up to 1924 when the last Khalifa was sent in exile to Paris, so the first Khalifa was in Medina and the last one died in Paris. So it's a journey from Medina to Paris. Can you believe it?

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

unimaginable this happened yesterday. Actually.

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

1920 fours not a long time ago, in fact, one of the chairman of the last 35 still alive. He's in his 80s. Now,

00:30:09--> 00:30:17

one of the children of the last Ottoman Khalifa, who died in Paris. I think his name is Otto Hamid, something like that, instead of life today.

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

So what happened now?

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

Now the Arab world to be divided as per the Treaty of Paris.

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

You know, the British did.

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

The British created countries, the British created, the British say, there are so many Muslims in the Arab world, we must give the Arab Christians their own country.

00:30:45--> 00:30:49

The Maronite Christians, and they took a pen and they carried a piece and they called it

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

cola. But as they call it, what country is Lebanon?

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

They cover a piece and they may call it labor, and they said that it's for the Maronite Christians.

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

And then they wanted to give

00:31:11--> 00:31:26

a piece of land to the whites, the 2% of the Syrian population that is slotted into the Sudanese at the moment, and we'll explain that later. Now the alibis came to have so much power in Syria, Syria, of course was given to them to the French.

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

And thirdly, the British. The British was given what was called the trans Jordan trunk, Jordan consisted of Jordan and Palestine,

00:31:39--> 00:31:43

Israel as well, and they were given Iraq and they were given Arabia.

00:31:44--> 00:31:45

Listen, this is interesting.

00:31:48--> 00:31:54

So the oil of Arabia Mecca, Medina, Riyadh, oh area there was given to the British. But,

00:31:55--> 00:32:00

of course now the Sharif of NACA, the rule of NACA Sharif Hussein

00:32:02--> 00:32:11

was still telling the British of the promises they made to him, they promised him that they will not going to divide the article, they're going to give their own Attaboy to him, and he was going to be the new hire if

00:32:13--> 00:32:18

he had three sons. So the British he don't worry, man. What we'll do is

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

your your eldest son, Ali,

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

will give him Saudi Arabia, what is today called Saudi, just like that? You will give him the hand? Yes.

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

The first thing he did was he declared himself halifa. Ali, first thing he did was, he declared himself califa of the Muslims. He lasted from October 1924 to December 9025. That is the length of Israel.

00:32:49--> 00:32:57

Mason, so the British put Ollie there. And at the same time they finance an arm the Saudis,

00:32:58--> 00:32:59

the family of Saudi.

00:33:01--> 00:33:10

And of course, the final sound was British man in British arms. they overthrew him overthrow early and established school today. Saudi Arabia,

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

the other son

00:33:14--> 00:33:20

of her saying the Sharif of Makkah, Abdullah, they said, okay, your second son, you know what we'll do? We'll give him Jordan.

00:33:21--> 00:33:58

Can you believe it? They take a complete stranger, complete foreigner for one country, the son of somebody, and they said, Now we're giving you this country, Jordan. Anyway to Jordan 14 was successful, of course, supported him. And immediately what he did was he called himself king. He called himself king of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Why? hashima because he was from the family of Hashem family of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the existing King the king. Now I think this King Abdullah is the new King of Jordan. King Abdullah is the great, great grandson of this, Abdullah was a son of the Sharif.

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

So this family, the kings of Jordan has got no link with Jordan.

00:34:05--> 00:34:10

They're not citizens of the country. But the rule is this what the British states panela

00:34:13--> 00:34:17

Certainly, the youngest son, or the youngest son, Faisal,

00:34:19--> 00:34:26

he was best friends with Lawrence of Arabia, that was his best friend. Two of them are very good buddies.

00:34:27--> 00:34:36

In fact, it was, it was faithful, who supplied all the manpower in the army, for the Arabs to fight and to destroy the Philippines.

00:34:38--> 00:34:48

And I think that was the case and Allah, Allah pretending that Muslims went to war against the greatest institution of Islam, the Philippines.

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

And most Muslims went themselves. This was not all the Muslims. This was the family of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So it tells you that he doesn't it's not about being

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

The family of the Navy salsola. It's about you.

00:35:03--> 00:35:05

It's about your sensibility. It's about your integrity.

00:35:07--> 00:35:21

So first of the youngest, he was given your oxygen when you go to Iraq, Iraq, he was made the Government of Iraq and immediately declared himself king of Iraq. So they wanted to become kings. They started with kingship in the Arab world

00:35:26--> 00:35:36

by the Iraqis immediately kicked them out. And in 1958, put the whole family of this faithful in one room and shuffled.

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

spagnola 9015

00:35:41--> 00:35:51

just like saying no skill before that, also in Iraq, Iraq is a very don't just in the Arab world, they always tell you don't relax.

00:35:55--> 00:36:02

And 10 years later, who came to power colonel in the Iraqi army by the name of Saddam Hussein

00:36:06--> 00:36:10

Turkey, now comes Turkey. So now we have

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

in

00:36:16--> 00:36:21

we now have a homeland for the Christians than a Christian Lebanon, and there was an app

00:36:22--> 00:36:37

also ad created for the whites and the other whites. I don't like to call the violence I like to call him sad because I like I like it's taken from Cincinnati and they have are far removed from from from Sydney.

00:36:39--> 00:36:42

But why is it the 2% of the population of Syria

00:36:44--> 00:36:54

became the rulers of Syria, because the British wanted to balance the Sunni majority in Syria and in the Levant in Jordan North because majority Sunni,

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

the only places where there were

00:36:58--> 00:37:08

others was the bruises. The Druze community in Lebanon, part of Lebanon, and the allies in said the allowance of barbarians.

00:37:09--> 00:37:30

These 2% of people there are no actual barbarians, they lived in the mountains. And the only way they survived was they used to attack the Sudanese. Take the women raped the women, take their food, take the whatever they took from them and go back into the mountains. The British saw this as an opportunity. And the British train them as soldiers and made them generals.

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

Sorry, not the British, the French mob, the French. So the French

00:37:38--> 00:37:43

employed the allies to become the army of the end when they left because we know the

00:37:45--> 00:37:48

father of the man who's there now, What is his name?

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

I said

00:37:53--> 00:37:54

took over the country.

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

So the whole problem that we haven't seen it is because of the pitch.

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

They wanted to sidelight the Sundays it was all about breaking up and trying to destroy the unity of Muslims Turkey.

00:38:09--> 00:38:22

Turkey was not given to the Russians it was given to the to the British, not a man but as I said, logic Mustafa Kemal was later to be known as a doctor. He opposed to British

00:38:24--> 00:38:32

and he established modern Turkey. Now modern Turkey has to do is only 6% of the land that was the Ottoman Empire.

00:38:33--> 00:38:41

Only 6% 94% was given away to the Europeans 6% cammarata turret manage to keep and to fight.

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

But unfortunately for us commodity was one of the persons who hated Islam. Unfortunately,

00:38:54--> 00:39:01

he did the following, he banned the recitation of the Quran. In Arabic, Quran could only be read in Turkish.

00:39:04--> 00:39:26

He banned the as are being made in Arabic to prevent only Turkish Salah could only be performed in Turkish. He banned the hijab. He banned all religious schools. And in 1924, on March the third, he was the one to exile the last halifa Abdul Majeed the second send him to Paris

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

in exam, so that was the end of the killer.

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

And the people who took up the hill off and movement to try and

00:39:40--> 00:39:46

revive and to occur in the Khalifa was the people in the Indian subcontinent.

00:39:48--> 00:39:56

Muslims of India, very very passionate cabal and everybody else very passionate in telling the machines we have.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

But of course the British was so powerful at the time.

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

That movement lost steam and didn't get further.

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

So now we have

00:40:08--> 00:40:14

this last Khalifa Shane, sorry looking man, sitting there and remember

00:40:16--> 00:40:22

one of the one of the ways that we were affected by the tilaka in Turkey was that the British government

00:40:23--> 00:40:31

and the Queen Victoria had sent a man to Cape Town or sensibility to come and teach the Muslims Islam, and his name was

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

shared.

00:40:36--> 00:40:39

So there's a connection between the

00:40:40--> 00:41:07

Ottoman Empire and the Muslims. But we know of course, that that was something else. Because the Muslims in the cape were 100%, choppier, and he was a Hanafi. So it created quite a bit of problems amongst the people of Cape Town as far as was a good to his great article he wrote, in fact, I have a copy of the original printed edition is printed in Cairo at the time, he wrote the first book

00:41:09--> 00:41:23

in Afrikaans, Arabic. If you read Arabic, it reads Afrikaans within in the Arabic script. But if you read it in rich Africa, it is a fifth book, beautifully written by him, and I think was reprinted by his family.

00:41:26--> 00:41:31

So now we have all this chaos in the Muslim world. And we have

00:41:32--> 00:41:36

our last sorry for setting in Paris of all places.

00:41:39--> 00:41:42

At that time, 1924.

00:41:46--> 00:41:50

He's three tells us that the richest man who live

00:41:53--> 00:42:05

the most powerful and richest Muslim ruler in 1924, as the demise or death of the Khilafat was the Nizam of Hyderabad. In India.

00:42:09--> 00:42:15

This is not easily written by Indians, this is easily given by the world, international scholars.

00:42:18--> 00:42:26

It is established by them by modern historians, that he was the richest man in human history Subhan Allah

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

on a reverse mortgage, then they'll be Sulaiman

00:42:31--> 00:42:44

Elisa leprosy. But this is what they concluded in the camp. Then exam of either about Hyderabad was is a place inside India, that was always a Muslim state, because the British took away that and the cleaning part of India.

00:42:47--> 00:42:54

And the Ottoman Turks still had this romantic idea, surreal idea that

00:42:55--> 00:42:58

maybe we can give birth to another Khalifa

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

if we marry

00:43:03--> 00:43:07

people from great families, because it doesn't work like that.

00:43:09--> 00:43:25

So the youngest son of the Nizam of Hyderabad, I picture the photograph that I've seen on the Internet of the last 30 for sitting on the chair, and on his left hand sides to the sun in a three piece Italian suit, look like a clown.

00:43:26--> 00:43:34

And the other side there was a lady that knows carbonated. A name is Khadija she was the youngest daughter of the last halifa.

00:43:36--> 00:43:40

And the decision was to marry these two,

00:43:41--> 00:43:58

the son of the nism, writer about son of the richest man in the world, at the time, with a daughter of the Turkish family for the last decade. The idea was that they would have a family and from the Charla, maybe a new Khalifa would be would be born that many children but unfortunately,

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

the marriage ended in divorce.

00:44:04--> 00:44:13

And unfortunately, more unfortunate is that all of those families became poor regions. They became fringe.

00:44:14--> 00:44:16

They lost their Muslim identities.

00:44:17--> 00:44:19

And they were far removed

00:44:20--> 00:44:25

from the mainstream Islam. So that didn't come to any conclusion.

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

What we see today in the Arab world

00:44:34--> 00:44:35

is a result

00:44:37--> 00:44:39

of what happened

00:44:41--> 00:44:42

between

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

1914 and 2014.

00:44:47--> 00:44:49

And as I said, it's not a long

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

period of time, yesterday, only last year, as the news tells us the last survivor

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

The First World War died.

00:45:03--> 00:45:05

For the first world war died just last year.

00:45:06--> 00:45:26

And some of the children of the last clip I still alive, also living in Paris. Imagine you should know these people. I mean, the Muslim world should know that is the son of the Khalifa is still living in France, but he's probably living such a life that we wouldn't want to even maybe know who he is.

00:45:29--> 00:45:33

So the the cycles of violence of war,

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

or famine of pestilence

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

is not something that is afflicting only this part and this time that we're living in.

00:45:44--> 00:45:46

And from my own personal perspective,

00:45:48--> 00:45:54

I think that there is a lot of hope

00:45:55--> 00:45:57

for the future of Islam in the modern world.

00:45:59--> 00:46:03

I think when I look at the world, and I read about what's happening in the world,

00:46:04--> 00:46:11

that Muslims have become much more attached to the Islam than then in 1940.

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

And I think Muslims are more committed

00:46:21--> 00:46:23

and more protective over this.

00:46:29--> 00:46:30

I see amongst young people

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

the ideal and the question

00:46:36--> 00:46:39

to protect the fundamentals of office.

00:46:40--> 00:46:47

I see movements all over the world, whatever names you may call them, to bring back to us pristine Islam.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

I see.

00:46:53--> 00:47:07

When I look at the women, Muslim women, I see good mothers. I see mothers who said better examples. I mean, I can tell I've said this before, and this may not be all there is to it.

00:47:09--> 00:47:12

But I remember as a child in the 60s

00:47:16--> 00:47:19

that 99% of the women of Capetown

00:47:20--> 00:47:23

wore their skirts above the knees

00:47:27--> 00:47:32

I'm not gonna say who they are. But I would say probably 99%

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

of

00:47:36--> 00:47:38

the year was covered completely

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

with escapes

00:47:41--> 00:47:42

that we we today

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

we see a woman of 60 years old wearing a skirt a Muslim woman who has been for hygiene pray five times a day if we should see such a woman in the seat, your grandmother my grandmother

00:47:55--> 00:47:57

even the difference in him of difference

00:48:01--> 00:48:03

you you you can't imagine

00:48:04--> 00:48:09

today we look at the way our women did you can't imagine their daughters in fact that there is accepted risk code

00:48:11--> 00:48:14

accepted risk so however we've come a long way

00:48:16--> 00:48:19

even if that is all that we've achieved our hammer we've achieved

00:48:21--> 00:48:32

in fact the whole the distinction we used to make in those days in the late 60s early 70s even in the 80s was that in the north muscle of copper and then a be nervous to

00:48:34--> 00:48:40

and in the south to be never super and I say never cancel people who don't understand

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

news coverage

00:48:49--> 00:48:51

if I look at the number of all armor that we have

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

when I was a young man I could count all the checks escaped on my to maybe less than 10 fingers

00:49:01--> 00:49:02

we knew

00:49:07--> 00:49:16

there are how many law I don't know three quarters of the all of my kaiten I'm not I don't know who they are. Are they doing work teaching

00:49:18--> 00:49:25

so how can I this escaped on if I look at America for example progressive Muslims there and in Britain despite all the things that Britain did, and all

00:49:29--> 00:49:37

the great things awaiting this oma it has to be like that. Why? Because we living in the final days of this world and allows on the promises of victory.

00:49:39--> 00:49:42

So if you look at Syria and in Egypt, this is just

00:49:43--> 00:49:44

shoot notes.

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

We must never forget the power of divine intervention that allows one to intervene is God in His good divine time to change the course of history inshallah. So now Lawson

00:50:00--> 00:50:16

Give each other we've learned something from this history and now allows and gives it we learn the lesson that we're supposed to learn, and that we as an online nation, don't make the same mistakes as those of our Fathers will note alarum salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
