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

In hoonah, sakurako movie on a taco La

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

Villa Himanshu and fusina Molina, Maria de la Fernando de la Who am I a little further howdy Allah watershed, oh la la la la la la la sharika wanna shadow Mohammed Abu or a solo sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu alayhi wa early he was happy woman died without what he did. Brothers and sisters in Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Allows Muhammad Allah speaks in the Holy Quran Allah says

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

Yuri doin alioto Fionnuala for him, voila, hometeam mano de Waal Akari healthcare field. So the Cali allows partner says in this verse of the whole of Iran

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

in Surah,

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

Allah says,

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

You reduce you to Fionnuala, there are people

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

who are trying to extinguish

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:15--> 00:02:03

While la hometeam uno de, but Allah subhanho wa Taala will complete his light wallow curry healthcare field. Even if the cafe don't like it allows Mohan tala will complete his light. What does this verse mean? What does it say? What does it mean when Allah says that there are those who try and extinguish the light of Allah? There are those who fight Islam, there are those who try and extinguish the light of Dawa. There are those who try and physically destroy Islam, but allows father says, wala valey Allah will complete his life Allah will complete his Deen Allah will make this Deen every day victorious in sha Allah will carry healthcare through even though the non

00:02:03--> 00:02:34

Muslims of the non believers may not like it. Today's topic is called the future of Islam and Muslims. Of course, when we talk about the future of Islam and the Muslims, we mean the future of Islam and Muslims based on the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and based on lectures for example, as I said last week, on a man by the name of shallaki Rahim Allah and many others view Mohammed Ali interpreten saw

00:02:40--> 00:02:41

there is

00:02:42--> 00:02:45

a maxim which is either R or the law Who am Ron,

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

Allah who is Baba.

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

When allowed to have a hand with Allah

00:02:54--> 00:03:17

wants an end to come about when Allah Allah wants something to come about something to happen. Hey, hello, Baba, allows berhanu tala sets the conditions for them to come about alswamitra plans and sets the circumstances for that thing to come about. Things just don't happen. allows for hantera plans.

00:03:18--> 00:03:29

A lot plans ahead for any eventuality, any end, any thing allows for hautala sets things in motion for that thing to happen.

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

And

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

allows for harmattan and makes it clear.

00:03:36--> 00:03:53

And then Avi Salas, Allah makes a claim is a Hadith, that this woman will be victorious, that victory belongs to the Omar Mohammed sallallahu wasallam and allows Muhammad Allah will create the circumstances for that to happen,

00:03:54--> 00:03:59

allows mahanta Allah will create the means to achieve the end.

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

And the end is the victory of the Muslims.

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

And we can always sense

00:04:08--> 00:04:20

the coming of this victory if we are alive to what is happening around us. And if we read the Quran and Sunnah, we can almost sense the coming of this victory. If we look at what is happening in the world today.

00:04:23--> 00:04:34

And if we establish this rule, this Maxim which I said, If allows us to achieve a means to an end, allows one to create the means to achieve that end.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

And we will be able to discover and to find out whether victory is really near victory is really going to come to this home of Mohammed Salah Salah allows Of course it's promised victory in the Quran. Hamas Allah has promised emphatically in so many of his Hadith and so believing that this oma will be victorious is a matter of yaqeen

00:05:01--> 00:05:10

It is a matter of for you as a Muslim to believe that Islamic victorious is a matter of yaqeen. For all of us

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

as a team

00:05:14--> 00:05:19

in that for us it is part of our aqeedah. Part of our belief part of our Eman.

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

A Muslim

00:05:23--> 00:05:33

must believe that the oma will be victorious. If you do not believe that this Omar will be victorious, then there is something wrong with you.

00:05:34--> 00:05:48

There is something wrong with you or there is something wrong with your belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala Why? Why? If you doubt this, why, because the delete the proofs are so clear.

00:05:50--> 00:06:02

They are so clear in the Quran and Sunnah that this Omar of Mohammed Salah Salem will be victorious Omar let's go to some of the ayah to the Quran.

00:06:05--> 00:06:15

allows me to in the first sutra verse 105. Allah says, while a kata kata Nafisa boo me mean body decree.

00:06:18--> 00:06:45

Allows father says, Look at Katana. Before this Allah says we have written in the Psalms of Zaboo. In the kitakata is about many books, some of them are mentioned in the Quran zabar is mentioned in jail is mentioned. Because the Quran is mentioned the Torah is mentioned. These are all the books which are lost all the mentions Allah says, Allah is written in those books, my sermons the righteous shall inherit.

00:06:47--> 00:06:53

Meaning those who believe in Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah promises unless you will.

00:06:55--> 00:07:05

If you are righteous, meaning if you have a man, belief in Allah, Allah says the second delille surah Safar

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

sofort

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

37 Surah bazargan 71. Allah says, while aka the Saba Kalimantan Allah, I bet you know mousseline in monsoon in June Donna

00:07:21--> 00:07:32

Hello Swapna says, and again Allah says we believe in it, it's written, has finished. The decision has already been taken by our loss counselor, our word is gone first

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

of all for our slaves.

00:07:36--> 00:07:54

What the slaves the messengers of Allah subhanaw taala that they eventually will try. In the monsoon, we're in June then alohomora volleyball and our armies, the armies of the believers, they will be there the victors.

00:07:56--> 00:07:56

So

00:07:57--> 00:08:10

Allah says, in the law, he reached ohama yoshua. Abadi, while after battling Mata Ki allows hoglet says really, the earth belongs to Allah.

00:08:11--> 00:08:15

Who believe that Allah created the earth belongs to Allah. Allah says,

00:08:17--> 00:08:33

You read to him a sham in it, Daddy, and He will give this earth to whom he pleases of his servants. What are the key and the end will be for those who are more keen those who have Taqwa, those who feel lost.

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

So there is no doubt that the word has regretted

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

that our decision has been made that

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

the Muslim

00:08:45--> 00:08:53

the Muslim will inherit the status then allow us to October you redo you redo

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

our life, FYI him. What about law who in law, UT Monroe

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

similar kinds of words, as

00:09:05--> 00:09:12

they wish to extinguish the light of a law with their mouths

00:09:13--> 00:09:16

in law, but allows farmers already decided

00:09:18--> 00:09:38

that he will complete his light while carrying cattle even though the disbelievers may not like it and what is the light of Allah? What is the light of Allah, the light of our lives, the light of Islam is the reseller of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they tried to stop this flow of Dawa.

00:09:39--> 00:09:51

The non Muslims attempt to stop this flow of trying to stop the flow of Islam. And Allah says they will fail because Allah says he will completely slacked. And if we look

00:09:52--> 00:09:56

at the world today, and we look at the amount of money

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

that the non Muslims are spending

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

In order to extinguish the light of Islam, it is an imaginable. It is unimaginable that the resources which are lost was given to them. And they spend these resources in trying to undermine Islam in every single part of the world.

00:10:24--> 00:10:39

They focus in objective is to take out every single Muslim leader of note, either by drone strikes, or they kidnap them, they take them to him, continum, obey whatever they do, and so forth and so on. So every resource that they have,

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

they fight Islam.

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

They control the media.

00:10:45--> 00:10:57

They control the newspapers, they control the radio stations, they have satellites circling the earth, they have TV station to control governments.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

They control armies, police forces.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

So some people might say,

00:11:04--> 00:11:12

we haven't got a chance to oppose these powers to oppose the west to oppose people with so much money, so much of these sources.

00:11:13--> 00:11:18

It's foolhardy. They say, to go and confront them head on.

00:11:21--> 00:11:38

I mean, if you look at the Middle East, for example, you can easily look at Egypt, when you look at Ronnie Stan and look at all these places. And we sometimes think, yeah, maybe we should make a pact with the devil. Maybe we should enter into a pact with the devil, maybe we should alleviate the suffering of Muslims, and do what we are told to do.

00:11:40--> 00:11:47

We are told to give up. In other words, we are told that we should seek alternative solutions.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

We are told,

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

and this is the most laughable part of everything. We are told by our own leaders, that we should become more tolerant.

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

We're being killed. Our sins are being slaughtered.

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

In all parts of the world, whether it's in Somalia, or in Kenya,

00:12:10--> 00:12:25

or in Syria, in Afghanistan, or in Iraq, or in Indonesia, wherever it may be. Then what do our leaders say there's a middle path. The middle path is you must knuckle under and must become more tolerant. You are too militant.

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

In your effort to establish the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala so what do they say? They say? How can you fight such a big monster? For so much money? trillions and trillions of dollars? drones flying all over? airplane submarines, you name it, they have it?

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

We should try diplomacy.

00:12:48--> 00:12:54

We should try politics. We should negotiate. We should basically shut up.

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

Sorry to

00:12:59--> 00:13:05

keep quiet. Look for a job work. Get married have a wife and children and die.

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

No matter what happens. Allows mahallesi What is our last Parliament say? Hello Angela says

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

so it will unfurl. Allah says in the levena Katha who Yoon se pueden wala home Lia sudo unsavoury de la

00:13:25--> 00:13:30

fossa Yun Fukunaga, mata coonawarra massanutten Suma Yola boo.

00:13:32--> 00:13:41

What is Allah so Allah says, the disbelievers spend a while we should do answer to everything.

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

They spend their wealth, their resources which Allah has given to them

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

to do to hinder men from the path of a loss.

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

What does Allah say?

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

First, una and there was 10 it says Allah, let them spend it

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

so much Hakuna name.

00:14:04--> 00:14:09

But the name Allah says they will become tired and they will become weak.

00:14:10--> 00:14:20

From you can't stand in Spain in Spain. When we see we see the results of spending, we see results in Europe. Do you see the American economy is recovering at such a slow pace?

00:14:22--> 00:14:30

The world is kept behind because of the slow pace of the American Recovery. And why? Because of the war in Iraq, Kosovo and Afghanistan.

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

So I was going to say is through three stages is mentioned in this first. First they spend the money to fight Islam. Secondly, Allah says Clinton spent the money they will spend their wealth they will spend the resources. Soon mokopuna Allen has written then they will become weaker, this will become weak. You become tired. Then you have they will be overcome allows congresses then there will be beaten so

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

So we say then as Allah swans, Allah says let them spin their wealth.

00:15:09--> 00:15:19

Because that is how they will be defeated. Let them spend their wealth. The mo the biggest armies in the world have the biggest armaments in the world. That is the way they're going to be defeated.

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

If we look at the Iraq War, for example,

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

the Vietnam War cost

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

in the region of $200 trillion.

00:15:37--> 00:15:42

Very good reach. The Korean War cost $400 trillion.

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

It's a lot of money

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

just on war.

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

And it is said

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

that the Iraq War

00:15:55--> 00:15:59

and the one of anisong will probably cost 1000 trillion dollars.

00:16:06--> 00:16:15

What is Allah say? fossa? Yun Fukunaga, they will spend it explain what the resources which allows while they're given to them.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

What did we say in the beginning?

00:16:21--> 00:16:33

Hey, Allahu Allah, when Allah wants to bring about an end, Allah creates the means for the end. So Alzheimer's, given the waist all these resources

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

and they doing exactly what allows behind what Allah

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

wanted them to do.

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

And these wars, the Vietnam War, the war in Iraq,

00:16:51--> 00:17:05

though in Afghanistan, these are wars that were brought to the door of America. Nobody attacked America. The Vietnamese didn't attack America, nor did the Koreans attack America, nor did they have run is in order the Iraqis they took the war to these countries

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

take took it upon himself to make war with the world.

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

And so they will spend they will become broke and allows fatherless says to me, then they will be defeated by Muslim armies just like Abu Jamal

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

Abu Jamal

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

was the one

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

who decided

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

to meet whenever he saw solomid buzzer to make war

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

despite the fact that Abu sufian

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

because the reason I went to bother was not

00:17:48--> 00:17:57

the reason nav is so long Wayne was to intercept the caravan under the leadership of Abu sufian it was coming from Syria.

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

But the Navy is a solemn mystery caravan, Abu sufian was a bit more clever. And he took another route and the visa Salam couldn't get to the caravan. And so Abu sufian sent the message to Abu Jamal to say oh Abu Jamal,

00:18:15--> 00:18:24

don't worry anymore. You can all come home now. The caravan is safe, no problem. Abu Jamal said what? No, no, no, no, no, no.

00:18:25--> 00:18:34

We are going to wait for Mohammed Salah salah and the Muslims at buzzer. We are going to first make a party there for three days.

00:18:36--> 00:19:17

And then we can get the women to sing for us. And then we gain to decimate the Muslims once and for Why? Because they have humiliated us and we cannot be humiliated. We are the Quraysh After all, we are the best club in the Arabian Peninsula We are the production. So despite the fact that there was no war placed upon the back of Abuja and the Quraysh, he decided to bring it upon himself. He took it upon himself. So they went to bother the feasts it for three days. And eventually what happened we know what happened. They lost the battle and battle.

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

And that was part of the means that allows one created for the end. The end would eventually become the end of the Quraysh and they might in the Arabian Peninsula.

00:19:32--> 00:19:47

There are many hobbies which point to the victorious nature of Islam and Muslims. There's one Hadith of the navamsa Salah codici with revista Salaam says man as Ali Ali and allows father says monarda Lee Walia

00:19:48--> 00:19:54

Chaka to bill allows one that says and he who opposes

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

my friends

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

Those who believe in me remotely known and the Muslim own, those who oppose them,

00:20:07--> 00:20:24

for them to will harm Allah will declare war upon them. I Allah will declare war on those who declare war. So, the non Muslims throughout history when they attacked Islam they didn't attack Islam in the prophets

00:20:27--> 00:20:41

the opposition and income from the Gambia, the opposition came from Allah. They had made war and declared war on Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah, Allah says in the mother what Allah say about Allah says Mohammed Salah

00:20:43--> 00:20:57

that when you shot the bow, the arrow you didn't shoot it I shot it. Meaning Allah created the means for the destruction of the people at butter and allows father says

00:21:03--> 00:21:04

it's rare to know

00:21:06--> 00:21:11

why the low libido Amano minco wamena saw the heart

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

lay asleep

00:21:16--> 00:21:33

Kama Sutra levena min Kabbalah him while I am a Kenan Allah whom Dina whom Allah Kabbalah whom What are you but dilemna whom I mean by the whole thing? Yeah, Buddha nanny, that usually could be she allows father says,

00:21:34--> 00:21:46

Allah promises those who believe why the law who Latina hermano Miku, Allah says, I promise you, those of you who believe I promise you, what is the promise why monosol ahead, and those of you who do get the good deeds.

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

Sometimes I look at the world today and I look at

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

the contribution that Muslims are making,

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

to society, especially in Cape Town, South Africa,

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

compared to the contributions that other communities are making,

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

on a social level, on a political level.

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

And I find that Muslims lag far behind.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

I find that

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

our religious leadership,

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

people who don't learn to study Deen,

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

the chain knows when they come back, all they do is they preach and teach.

00:22:39--> 00:22:46

We have classes that run from Monday, if there was 12 days in the week, they would be having classes 12 days a week.

00:22:49--> 00:22:52

I'm saying where's the balance?

00:22:53--> 00:23:10

When do we go out to help people? When do we establish organizations? When do we have clinics? For example, to, to to to repair people's eyesight as an example? Maybe?

00:23:13--> 00:23:19

When do we establish a political home for Muslims that truly belongs to Muslims?

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

When do we really get involved in the nitty gritty?

00:23:25--> 00:23:29

on the ground floor of building this country up from the bottom up?

00:23:34--> 00:23:41

You have so many rooms, if you have so many moments in our lives, any moms can What if they log in to teach what is going to happen?

00:23:43--> 00:23:46

How many classes can you have?

00:23:48--> 00:23:50

After all, we don't live in an age

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

when knowledge

00:23:56--> 00:24:04

cannot be gotten accepted. Maybe when you sit in the class. I mean, we have the printing press, we have books, we have the internet, we have so many things.

00:24:05--> 00:24:18

I realized that there is a big difference between information and knowledge, which we have to admit that maybe knowledge you can only get at the foot of it at the feet of a teacher and information you can get everywhere.

00:24:20--> 00:24:32

But if I look at the life of Muhammad, Allah Solomon and look at the life of the Sahaba, that's not what happened. The Islamic State wasn't built on preaching alone. The Islamic State was built on building the nation.

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

So allows while the law says

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

I promise those who believe

00:24:44--> 00:24:45

and those who do good

00:24:47--> 00:24:54

that they will inherit Yes, I will make them inherit the earth as I made those, inherit the earth before them.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

And I will make the dean and establish it while you

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

Keven Melo Hong Dena,

00:25:02--> 00:25:05

Allah tala, which Allah has chosen for us.

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

And then Allah says

00:25:10--> 00:25:14

while in your bag dilemna home I mean by the whole for him

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

and I will change the fear which they have into security

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

and safety.

00:25:25--> 00:25:36

Yeah boo boo nanny with one single condition that they should worship me while I should be Shia and not ascribe a partner to me. So I lost one of the promises there.

00:25:38--> 00:25:47

And we know Muslims are living in a state of fear wherever you go in the world, you can't travel properly in the state of fear if you have a beard and you travel, you have problems.

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

We're going every Muslim country

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

I mean, if Syria doesn't inspire us nothing will

00:26:02--> 00:26:08

and allows us is after all this fear they will come a period of security and safety

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

and allows

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

for non for love

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

khilafah Allah says, I will give you a Muslim schema for

00:26:22--> 00:26:25

what is healer healer from his leadership

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

our making entity

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

and I will make you leaders of mankind

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

fizzle out

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

sometimes you hear people say

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

we live

00:26:43--> 00:26:47

in times when the Omar Mohammed Salim is weak.

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

Yet this week, Muslims are weak.

00:26:53--> 00:26:55

People do what they want

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

their resumes defeated.

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

This oma

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

is this united.

00:27:10--> 00:27:22

And some of us who are maybe a little more religious say, Oh, I wish I lived in the time with the Sahaba. Now I wish I lived in the time of the Sahaba Oh, I wish I live in a time of the prophets of Allah. Allah.

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

Allah, I wish I lived in the time of the Arabic heroes of Islam.

00:27:32--> 00:27:42

The target, those who follow the Sahaba came out of this habit. They didn't meet the Mohammed. They didn't meet the native Salam. But they made the Sahaba. One time he once asked it's a hobby,

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

he said to as a hobby.

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

How did you learn more than ever?

00:27:48--> 00:27:55

How do you treat him? What is your behavior and interaction with him like? And this RV said,

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

Well,

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

our companionship

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

within every salon.

00:28:04--> 00:28:08

We try to live it and to be with him to the best of our ability.

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

Whatever we did,

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

and a contribution we made was over to the best of our ability.

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

And the tabea he responded and he said well, ah he is the niece of salami to live amongst us. We would have carried him on our shoulders. And we probably say the same.

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

We probably say the same. Imagine Levison Solomon lived amongst us.

00:28:38--> 00:28:45

Now there was a Tabby I was saying we would have treated him better than you the Sahaba would have loved him more than you loved him we'd probably say the same.

00:28:47--> 00:28:50

And the Taj Mahal sentence, hubby said to him,

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

you would never have known

00:28:59--> 00:29:03

how you treated Teresa lasala. You'd never know.

00:29:05--> 00:29:09

You'd never have known because you'd never met him. We never lived with him.

00:29:12--> 00:29:15

You will not be in the situation in which we were in.

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

We were fighting

00:29:20--> 00:29:25

not only the non Muslims, we are fighting our fathers and our brothers.

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

Your brothers and fathers our Muslim.

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

Our fathers and brothers were non Muslim.

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

We were sometimes the only Muslim in our family.

00:29:40--> 00:29:42

And so we had this task

00:29:44--> 00:29:47

of them fighting us We live in a world of Fighting.

00:29:49--> 00:29:56

Fighting our fathers and our mothers. So it wasn't an easy thing. It wasn't easy for us in the time of the night. Nice awesome.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

So they saw this I was 18 do not

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

wish

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

to ask for something which Allah did not.

00:30:07--> 00:30:28

which Allah didn't give to you, which Allah didn't mean for you don't ask to have lived in another time it wasn't it wasn't meant for you. You are meant now to live in the 21st century, not to live in the time with a sahaabah not giving the time or the time, you know, to live in the time of Muhammad wa salam, you are living now in the 21st century.

00:30:29--> 00:30:35

This is our reality that we have to deal with. This is the number one question number two question is

00:30:38--> 00:30:39

people complain about our time.

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

People say

00:30:44--> 00:30:47

this about the time if you live and that about the time in which we live,

00:30:48--> 00:30:52

about our children about this and about that we was complaining about the time and

00:30:54--> 00:30:59

yet we should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala that we living in this time.

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

We must be very grateful to Allah subhanaw taala to be living the days in which we are living.

00:31:08--> 00:31:17

Why? Why must we be grateful? Why must we be so grateful that we live in now in the 21st century? When

00:31:18--> 00:31:20

you look at the status, let's look at the status of the Sahaba.

00:31:22--> 00:31:27

They of course have the highest status after Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:31:28--> 00:31:40

Why? In all of the old mother's armor stands out our bunker armor, all these great personalities of man alley. They stand out as beacons icons

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

of email taqwa.

00:31:44--> 00:31:49

And we take them as our icons are examples. They the highest, the best, the greatest.

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

And then the tabulation Of course who comes after them?

00:31:55--> 00:31:59

But what made them the best? Why were they the best?

00:32:02--> 00:32:10

Why were the people that came after them? not better than them? Why were they the best? Why wouldn't the third aim the base oil man who shall go honey?

00:32:13--> 00:32:23

Why was the Sahaba the base of people who lived on the face of the earth. Because the Sahaba had to build Islam from scratch.

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

When there's harbor there, there was nothing.

00:32:28--> 00:32:31

The Sahaba laid the foundation of this team.

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

And those who came after them, came to a completed house

00:32:39--> 00:32:53

came to us maybe to add little room maybe to do the garden up a little bit. And so within so on a bug fix something is broken. But basically, basically Islam was both thoughts of Islam was both.

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

So there's a God the status of the best people because they laid that they both the nation

00:33:09--> 00:33:19

and then makes them the best generation. Because that was the most difficult job. We know that the most difficult job is to build from the foundation.

00:33:21--> 00:33:25

And it's important for us to realize then

00:33:28--> 00:33:31

what is the need of the time in which we live now?

00:33:32--> 00:33:38

The the demand of the time in which the Sahaba lived there was a static fatigue particular demand

00:33:39--> 00:33:53

that the man wants to lay the foundation what is the foundation of Islam? The foundation of Islam is La Ilaha Illa what is to read? What is the Hades absence of ship?

00:33:54--> 00:34:00

What is the actions of the actions of innovation in Islam Sahaba was up against

00:34:01--> 00:34:15

a society that buried the daughters alive up against a society that worships idols up against a society where the worship of men was above the worship of Allah subhanaw taala

00:34:17--> 00:34:28

that was the time of the steak was that because that is why for 17 years Muhammad Allah salamander Sahaba What is it preach only? They only preach kulu Allahu

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

Allah Muhammad. Let me read to me.

00:34:33--> 00:34:39

13 years, no Salah 13 years, no fasting 13 years

00:34:40--> 00:34:46

13 years nosaka only one thing this harbor did to establish the need

00:34:48--> 00:34:53

to remove the impurities from our ibotta to a Lowe's pinata.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

And when the rain came after them, they their job was different.

00:35:01--> 00:35:12

They started collecting the Hardys, they started teaching Islam and turning people who came after them. Their job was different. And the people who came after them

00:35:13--> 00:35:14

their job was different.

00:35:16--> 00:35:30

If I Buhari for example, Mr. Buhari, whom you all know to be the, the, the leader of compilation of hadith of Mohammed Salah salam, if you had lived 100 years later, you would not have had the status he has today.

00:35:32--> 00:35:41

If you mama Shafi and I know like to live under the years later than you live, you would not buy this status today. No Abu hanifa no Malik. No.

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

Why?

00:35:47--> 00:35:55

If you look at the time in which the greatest Maha detune lived among Bukhari and Muslim and the other six, they all lived in the same century.

00:35:58--> 00:36:17

The compilation of the most authentic hadith was done in the same century. That was the time Imam Shafi, Abu hanifa, Imam, Malik, Muhammad, Muhammad all lived in the same region. So what does it tell us? It turns us in that in the time of Bukharian that century, what was the need of our

00:36:18--> 00:36:22

Do you think the collection of a heavy

00:36:24--> 00:36:31

emphasis was to collect the hadith of Muhammad? That was the need the call of the Tao and the sanctity of the

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

IMA motto?

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

of shavian? Abu hanifa, what is the need? The need was to establish the law of Islam. That was the need of that time. What is the what is that the the need to call Sahaba? To establish to heed? That was the time time of Buhari heady time of Shafi and Andres, Abu hanifa, and the rest was.

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

So if we want to serve Islam,

00:37:10--> 00:37:20

to the best of our ability, we must try and establish what is the deed now in this sentence? What does Islam need from us now?

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

It's very important.

00:37:27--> 00:37:35

I mean, today, some people spend the time making Tao. Others spend the time teaching others spend the time doing this other spend the time doing that.

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

But what is it that this time needs?

00:37:45--> 00:37:49

And to try and answer the question we need to look at our time,

00:37:50--> 00:37:57

the time in which we live, and to see how our time compares to maybe a time that preceded our time.

00:37:58--> 00:38:04

And if you look at the lives of the Sahaba at the time with the Sahaba, you'll find that this 21st century that we live in,

00:38:07--> 00:38:11

most similar to the time of the Sahaba already a lot, a lot A

00:38:12--> 00:38:20

lot of similarities between the time in which we live today. And the time is a sahaabah electron.

00:38:23--> 00:38:28

We have in 14 centuries, sunk to the lowest level

00:38:29--> 00:38:30

with this united

00:38:33--> 00:38:36

our enemies can do it with us whatever they want.

00:38:40--> 00:38:51

We are 2 billion straws, not 2 billion people. People can take us like this and do this and crumble us. Look what they're doing to us in the world.

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

This was the time of the Sahaba

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

the time in Makkah

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

with an emphasis on love.

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

They were harrassed

00:39:09--> 00:39:11

they had to go into exile.

00:39:12--> 00:39:20

They were beaten. Put in the sun Bilaal, for example. They couldn't pray in the heart of things were bad.

00:39:21--> 00:39:30

They were boycotted who salami to eat leaves. For three years they were boycotted. Arabs refused to trade with each other to stop them. Like they starving the people of

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

Gaza. Same situation, starve them to death.

00:39:37--> 00:39:45

So there's a lot of similarities. And I'm not talking about us in Cape Town. I'm talking about Muslims in the world today.

00:39:48--> 00:39:55

Where do we take refuge? Waiting Mohamed says I'm saying the Sahaba take refuge in a non Muslim Christian country.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Where do Muslims today take care?

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

Huge

00:40:01--> 00:40:05

in Muslim in Christian countries, non Muslim countries,

00:40:06--> 00:40:15

one who think that the Arab world, the Muslim world will take refugees from Syria, but who offers them refuge, Denmark, Sweden, America, Britain.

00:40:17--> 00:40:27

So if you look at it, you can see the similarities that exists between our society in the world world society and the time of the Sahaba.

00:40:29--> 00:40:39

At that time, the beginning we saw at the time of the Sahaba, there was no Muslim or no Islamic authority. There was no authority but no promises had no authority.

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

We have the same today.

00:40:45--> 00:40:48

And when the Sahaba came down world was against him.

00:40:49--> 00:40:55

Everybody thought it was the Persian Empire, the Roman Empire, the Arabs of Arabia, everybody fought.

00:41:01--> 00:41:07

And that time also that nobody support them. Like today, if you speak the truth, nobody supports

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

that you leave the places.

00:41:13--> 00:41:18

And so the time was a haba was the time of the greatest,

00:41:19--> 00:41:20

the greatest reward from Allah.

00:41:23--> 00:41:24

Allah cadre,

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

there is a saying which says that the reward is commensurate with the difficulty

00:41:33--> 00:41:47

and the reward of the Sahaba of the Sahaba. The reward that Allah gave him was commensurate with the difficult period in which they left and therefore they were 10. At the end, there were problems generating

00:41:48--> 00:41:51

the highest reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:41:53--> 00:41:59

will come equal to this harbor. But at least we can get the Agile of the Sahaba.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

And even though

00:42:06--> 00:42:14

the profit or loss on them said there was a harbor would be the best of the three generations.

00:42:18--> 00:42:25

Despite having said that, the Navy Salam also one day say to the Sahaba, that at the end of time,

00:42:26--> 00:42:28

they will be Muslims

00:42:29--> 00:42:34

will be equal to 50 others, one Muslim will be equal to 50.

00:42:36--> 00:42:45

So, sad rasulillah 50 What 50 who profited, one man at the end of time will be equal to 50 of you.

00:42:48--> 00:42:51

One man or one woman,

00:42:52--> 00:42:58

the last part of my home now will be equal to $50 50 bucks

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

their salaries solo be equal to the 50 Sahaba

00:43:06--> 00:43:19

is forcing will be equal to the 50s Can you imagine if the reward of those people were so great that says at the end of time, they will people will come and they will have this 50 of you?

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

Why?

00:43:22--> 00:43:24

Again, because

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

an agile Allah cadres

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

award is given on the basis of the difficult value of the time in which you live.

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

And we live in the end of time.

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

We are living at the time with an emphasis on say

00:43:47--> 00:43:50

that 50 of us are equal to one of you.

00:43:55--> 00:44:05

And the Havas, how come because maybe Samsung because at that time to live as a Muslim, would be to all the piece of hot coal in your hand and not open your hand.

00:44:08--> 00:44:15

And they said is that the only reason we saw Samsung? Second reason is that the people who speak the truth will have no support.

00:44:16--> 00:44:17

Just like you

00:44:18--> 00:44:27

prophesied, like you must have a you have no support. You speak the truth people want to kill you the same what happened in the end of time?

00:44:30--> 00:44:31

So

00:44:32--> 00:44:33

why do we complain?

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

If we live in the time of the new Gold Rush as he said, Why are we complaining no the rush for gold, but a rush for the gold of hassanal

00:44:45--> 00:44:54

the rush for the gold of good deeds where your good deed will be equal to a good deed that was done by 50 of the companions of Muhammad Allah Salah.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Can you know the difficult value of establishing Deen in your own home

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

difficulties with your wife and your children and you husband and your brothers and your sisters.

00:45:07--> 00:45:09

Sometimes you have to hide from them.

00:45:11--> 00:45:14

Sometimes you have to just turn your face away and close your eyes.

00:45:15--> 00:45:30

But the main you will get the reward of 50 Sabo gonna stand up and say no, this is not what Mohammed says Salaam, once and this is not what our last panel requires from us. So the gold rush of personalities this time this is the end of time.

00:45:32--> 00:45:49

You know, when the economy is booming, everybody becomes rich. You know, there was a time in Capetown, when we had a building boom. Remember, the Buddha builders will tell you the building boom time, or the third is became very rich, even though they live in a triple storey house.

00:45:52--> 00:46:09

This is boom time for us. So we should be grateful that we live in don't want to be don't don't wish to live in the time of the Sahaba or some other time. This is your time. This is the time which allows one that has given to us. And we should go and get a job that allows for that as promised us.

00:46:11--> 00:46:15

We may be near the reason we don't know. These are the last days.

00:46:17--> 00:46:30

I'm not a prophet of doom, I don't have a fire, it's going to be off that we are in that time. nomads gonna come after us. No prophet is gonna come after us. We can sit and wait on the sidelines. While all this rush is going on.

00:46:32--> 00:46:37

People are making millions in the boom time and what do we do? We sit at home and do nothing. It's our fault.

00:46:39--> 00:46:45

So we shouldn't complain. Now this is Alan says, allows father showed me the entire

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

every corner of the earth Allah showed me

00:46:49--> 00:46:57

and allows you to say to me Oh Mohamed Salah, your nation will inherit every square inch of this earth.

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

This time.

00:47:01--> 00:47:02

Islam will reach

00:47:03--> 00:47:09

every continent, every country, every city. That's what happened was that

00:47:11--> 00:47:14

Muslims are everywhere every single city in the world their Muslims

00:47:21--> 00:47:25

say are the bane of nearly 100

00:47:26--> 00:47:31

this Dean will reach every place with his night and with his day.

00:47:37--> 00:47:45

So we must all agree that we live in the time when the promise of allows Pilate Allah avec victory for this almost near.

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

The question we should ask ourselves is when?

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

How Long Does he still wait a month? A year?

00:47:56--> 00:47:57

100 years from now.

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

I'm going to make the claim to you that

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

we live

00:48:06--> 00:48:13

in the time when we will see and maybe not as maybe our children will see the victory of Islam.

00:48:14--> 00:48:16

And the claim is based

00:48:17--> 00:48:20

on the maxim which are quoted in the beginning,

00:48:21--> 00:48:23

either Ramadan

00:48:24--> 00:48:34

Allah who is Baba, which allows us to create an end. He creates the means for the end to be realized.

00:48:38--> 00:48:42

He says rule I create rule does it work
