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

humiliated by this small little man Mohamed Salah Salaam, we're going to wait for my brother will, will have party for three days, and we will slaughter him. And he's been wanting for make small fry off Mohammed and the compact and his companions. Of course what happened was Abu jahl died today we know that the Muslims were victorious. So allow the law then accept the circumstances for the death of Abu Jamal, and for the victory first victory of Muslims in our time. And we said that our time in fact represents the time of the Sahaba. This time represents how does it represent the time of the Sahaba. And in that spiritual in the legislature, we're back at the original fight, which is the

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

fight for terrain, which is a fight for anti shake.

00:00:46--> 00:01:01

It was the fight in the time of Makkah, when there was no Salah, nosaka, no Hajj, no fasting, nothing. There was only one battle, Marisa salon fought for 13 years. And that was battle to establish the oneness of allows

00:01:02--> 00:01:11

on the political front. Today Muslims find themselves against the world. It is us And the world. And it isn't by our choice.

00:01:13--> 00:02:01

It is by the choice of the West, the West Wing dinner party style in the West went into Iraq, the West went into Somalia, the West created like Abu Jamal created the problems for themselves. There was no Muslim army that went over to know they created. And this creation of this is all part of the maxim which I said where Allah with profits when he said that if Allah wants a certain end to come about, he creates the means towards those in and I said we living in a time of the Gold Rush, the new Gold Rush, not a rush for gold, but a rush for Hashanah. Like the Sahaba rushed for hassanal in a time. And we established that they were the greatest man who ever lived. Similarly, today we are

00:02:01--> 00:02:27

standing in the time, we're not standing on the brink. We haven't crossed the Rubicon yet. We're standing at a time when allows for how the law is going to give great adjectives to my what is the great adjunct, the great as it was that people are carbon abubaker were promised on the earth already that kind of reward, but we will hear later that for that kind of reward, there needs to be great sacrifice. Today inshallah we continue

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

our lecture on this particular theme.

00:02:33--> 00:02:45

And another example of our Allah create circumstances was after 13 years in Makkah, the Navy salatu salam was at a dead end like we are today. We are completely intimidated.

00:02:46--> 00:03:11

Syria, Egypt, one is done Iraq. Muslims are totally at the data in fact we don't have the solution. If you ask him people ask me about Syria if I don't know people ask me anything about Egypt I don't know. What is it? We don't know we are completed now. Visa Salama said exactly the same moment in history as where we are today. He tried an alternate officially me go to life.

00:03:12--> 00:03:45

And of course we know that failed. And then he tried every year the the Arabs of the Moroccan inshallah came for hedge and every hedge is to go to them and ask them for one thing only. He didn't ask him to convert to Islam. He said to them just support me so I think it gives the Tao of Islam. That's all he asked. He said support me so I can preach La ilaha illa Allah I want nothing from you. Just support me Give me the space and the security with your influence for me to be able to preach the truth as allows has given it to me.

00:03:46--> 00:03:50

Let me convey this message to the world. And they all turn him down.

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

All of them turn him down.

00:03:54--> 00:04:02

And but allows for handler wanted this agile, this reward to go to who to go to the answer of Medina

00:04:03--> 00:04:28

but the inside of Medina had no interest in Mohammed Salah. The answer of Medina were involved in the hundreds of two great tribes of Medina. They were involved in a 300 year war. They would wake up in the morning go to all stop in the evening next morning and get get up so they went to continuous battle in Medina. And then every element no interest in Medina also interested in Medina at all but allows Muhammad Allah

00:04:29--> 00:04:41

the circumstances alone to create was for the people of Medina to get the other of the unsolved. unsolved means supporters of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

I shut up yellow tilaka says, Can a yo yo mon Kadima Hola Hola, suli. I can introduce the subject of what happened and how can downside became unsalted Nabis of Salah. She said there was a

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

The day that happened in Medina called yo boo boo.

00:05:06--> 00:05:10

And this day was a gift that Allah gave to have metal allowed us.

00:05:11--> 00:05:29

What was the day of class? And how you How do I how was the day of was a gift to Mohammed Salah Lord is the day was was the day like any other day, when the I was in the hundreds, hundreds the two Arab tribes of Medina went out for war. This was the life.

00:05:32--> 00:05:40

And this battle the Battle of gas, what happened to the Battle of war and the Battle of the leaders of both armies were killed all the leaders,

00:05:41--> 00:05:46

the leaders of the house and the leaders of the hazards, they have also voted in this battle.

00:05:48--> 00:05:58

And so what happened what what was the result? The result was that the two great tribes of Medina would leaderless leader be this God

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

and

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

they came to Makkah for the Hajj.

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

And when they came to Makkah for the Hajj

00:06:22--> 00:07:04

they say to each other, let us approach this man Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we have no leader. Let's people speak well of him late. Let's take him Let's offer him the support which he requires. Maybe he could bring leadership back to Medina because the Arabs realized this was Arab cultures and a customer spotted a tradition to have strong leadership. They depended on the courage was the courage because of the leadership of machala bola Baba soufiane may have been hella cool these people these are the great leaders, they will not only lead us they will reach they with wise, Amari will hottub abubaker is all the great leaders are both really great leaders of Makkah and the pride

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

themselves in the leaders which act so now Medina was leaderless or rudderless.

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

And, of course,

00:07:15--> 00:07:46

what happened we know the history after that. They gave support to the nebula Salah nevison, Salah when to Medina and a new phase of the history of the world started. But Allah Sutherland claimed it out by the Battle of wires and had nothing to do with it. Nothing to even know it happened. He had nothing to do with it. Yet it was the greatest gift that allows 100 given to this oma. And so leadership is so important. leadership in Islam is very important.

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

I don't have to tell you how important it is for you as a husband or a wife to be a leader in your own home.

00:07:54--> 00:07:57

Even if you only spend half an hour in your house,

00:07:58--> 00:08:02

you know that if you were completely absent, you think there'd be chaos in your home.

00:08:04--> 00:08:12

And that is how important it is for just the whole prepper leader. So leadership is very important and those who oppose leadership

00:08:13--> 00:08:28

and particularly the leadership of the Gambia allows mahalo tala refers give them a special title in the Quran. They call Alma. Alma, Allah, Allah refers to Allah in the Quran, those people who oppose leadership

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

and those people who oppose leadership of the MBR limbs Islam, either the political leadership, or the economic leadership, or the media leadership, or the social leadership, why are these prominent leaders in their fields, so anti correct leadership, because

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

they're the ones who feel threatened, that the status quo will be touched.

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

Because they fear that all the benefits of the status quo they will lose. I mean, we see it in the political field in South Africa every single day. They feel they can lose the respect of the people, they feel they can lose everything. And particularly, they feel that they will be stripped of the power and the power will be given to the court.

00:09:22--> 00:09:31

This is the greatest fear today amongst leadership, whether it's amongst the all ama or amongst the political leadership, or amongst the international world leadership.

00:09:33--> 00:09:37

The greatest fear today is that Muslims will go back to the Quran.

00:09:40--> 00:09:51

So even amongst the so called Allah class, there is a movement away from the Koran and a movement towards what is called mainstream Islam. And I've said this before.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

There is no emphasis on the Quran. We don't have conferences that celebrate the Quran. No, but the all our mouths arrange conferences to convince us

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

That there is something called mainstream Islam mainstream leadership. Mainstream what it means either No, it means all the traditions that have debunked been debunked by Islam must be revived in terms of their system, and this is Islam.

00:10:18--> 00:10:21

I still want to see the ultimate fraternity or any conference.

00:10:24--> 00:10:30

And the impact the Quran must have in our lives and the history of the Quran, in the history of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:10:32--> 00:10:39

So the love of Islam, the leadership of Islam, is the leadership to establish the book of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

The Book of Allah Almighty.

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

abubaker so

00:10:45--> 00:10:48

they were leadership leaders of

00:10:52--> 00:11:01

the Quran to them was Supreme. The Quran Quran was the living book, The Living leader, after the death of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:11:02--> 00:11:06

And they didn't want this leadership, this leadership was foisted upon them.

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

When he when he was on his deathbed, people said, shall we appoint your son?

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

After you have the light in your honor? great scholar, great fucky

00:11:18--> 00:11:41

Can we appoint him as he says, please? One leader of his own mind, my family is enough. I don't want him to take the responsibility in front of all of the Deaf tiama for leading this oma It's enough that I take that responsibility. So they knew the responsibility of Leading the Leading the online the correct way and leading the oma on the basis of the correct.

00:11:45--> 00:11:48

So while the end was a preparation

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

for the leadership, that was gone.

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

And

00:11:57--> 00:12:36

the answer was ably suited to take over the position because they live in a city of Medina, in which table Jews and the Jews used to remind the Arabs the pagan Arabs had lived the houses the hazards lived amongst them, that one day a profit will come and of course the Jews believe the profit would come from them. And when that topic comes used to threaten the Arabs, we will sought to you didn't realize that that profit would come from the Arabs. Of course the Jews are very disappointed when aloha not Allah said Mohammed Salah la salah and he was from the from the Arabs and not from the Jews.

00:12:38--> 00:12:45

The second example, about Allah how altona creates the circumstances for changing the world

00:12:46--> 00:12:52

is when Amara macabre de la jolla and sent an army against the Persians.

00:12:54--> 00:13:02

And the leader of this army was Abu Zubaydah as a coffee. A Barbados coffee was a very courageous general.

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

And when he attacked pleasure,

00:13:11--> 00:13:22

he was overzealous and took to bigger risk. And in the first day of better half his army was slaughtered 50% of the Muslim army died on the first day of the battle against the Persians.

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

This happened at the Battle of Jesus

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

and the Persian army toward

00:13:31--> 00:13:37

next month, all the way back to to the cities, they said, well now all we have to do is

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

is to finish off the other 50% and to regain all the land that the Muslims conquered, from here back to Medina.

00:13:49--> 00:13:58

So this was a golden opportunity. For the great remember Tony great to great powers, there was the Persian, the Persian Empire and the Roman Empire.

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

So the Persian empire that ruled the east, they thought this was it, and what allows him to plan differently.

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

Because for our laws of Allah, the requirements of victory is not the number of soldiers in your army, or the number of B 52 bombers you have, or the number of drones you have, or how many satellites you have spying on everybody in the world. In our last book, the requirement for victory is email.

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

And the new this

00:14:33--> 00:14:44

Allah says in Allah, Gaddafi, oh, Ronnie LA, Vina Amman, Allah says, Verily Allah defends those who believe.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

Allah defends Allah promise the difference. Now lies the protector and deliverer of the believers. So what happened? What happened? What happened in in the Persian capital?

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

In the Persian capital, there were two great Persian generals, one famous Rustom i think you know the name and the other one was Pharaohs on

00:15:10--> 00:15:48

and an argument brokered between Pharaohs on and rustem in the capital of Persia. And the Persian army they settled on that's exactly the next day after this great battle. They split faders and to carve the army, and the rest of to carve the army. And the king of Persia sent a message to his general it was leaving army was fighting the Muslims and they said, Please come back to the capital city, we need you hear, we have a big problem here between my two generals, arrest them and Pharaohs on you must come and sort out the problem. So when he left his army leaderless, there was a

00:15:49--> 00:15:55

opportunity for armor, he will have to send reinforcements, and the rest is history.

00:15:56--> 00:16:33

So allow us to intervene exactly on the day that the Muslims needed the intervention in a way that could never have been seen by any human being only allows wilderland knew, and that is our last $400 change the course of history. So sometimes we think you know, I'm in charge of my life. Today's Friday, this is what I'm going to do today, Dixie, I'm gonna do that, then I'm going to qualify and do that, then I'm going to build me a house or work in Dubai, then I'm going to do this, then I'm going to earn a lot of money and buy me a house. I've never lived with so many children.

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

Really,

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

you really think the plan your life

00:16:39--> 00:16:48

as some older people in your family, whether that same plans, what happened to their plans, how allows them to change their plans.

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

If I had to be in charge of my own life, I would never be standing in front of you today.

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

If

00:16:55--> 00:17:14

If I were to do what I wanted to do in life, at the age of 18 when I passed the ticker in university when I qualified, I had no idea that one day I'm going to stand in front of a mosque full of people and tell them about Islam. I had no idea absolutely Zilch. But the read

00:17:16--> 00:17:35

this is part of the great plan of Allah and so many of you are reaching the ground when I get to ritually Subhana Allah would I ever become a doctor or a lawyer or over my children become doctors wow, you know, my, my son is a chartered accountant. The other one is a specialist. And I only passed maybe JC or whatever. You think wow, this is

00:17:37--> 00:17:37

a long term.

00:17:40--> 00:17:53

oriented, fit man. That's all we need in life is too heavy man. Then other third example, an example more closer home, but 800 years ago in the time of a man called Salahuddin

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

revival of the deenis de mas and in fact, Salah Dean,

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

what was his name?

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

There was a man initially called

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

about Qasim. What is his name?

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

What is his real name?

00:18:21--> 00:18:32

His name is Mohamed Salah larussa when he was called by the Arabs, Father passing because they had a son called Casa Salahuddin also wasn't his name. His name was used.

00:18:34--> 00:18:38

It was his name, I'll call the use occurred came from

00:18:39--> 00:18:44

a little piece of land between Syria and Iraq

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

and Iran.

00:18:49--> 00:18:55

One of the biggest communities of people in the world with no homeland with no country.

00:18:57--> 00:19:01

But that's in the story for another day. Salahuddin a UB

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

Rahim Allah Sudanese soldier

00:19:08--> 00:19:17

but he saw the dangers of what is happening in Palestine. The Crusaders had already come twice that Congo with all the Levant meaning Sham,

00:19:18--> 00:19:41

and Sham today's loosely translated to Syria but Sharma at that time was Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine. This was sham. So in the eastern books he tried to sharpen the first two that all prices one country in the province of Salaam referred in Hadi to Sham he meant Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine town area. schooled in France the Levant

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

seraphic Dean decided to change the course of history. so loud him decided that he was going to attack the Crusaders. Little by little, a little bit of a tackier, a little bit of attack here, you know, like people do in the middle in the

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

In Afghanistan and and in Iraq and whoever else they are they their skirmishes with Americans wherever they can kill a few soldiers runaway I go back and we say to them you stupid me now can you take on America? It's impossible. So the guys who tell him you Salahuddin What are you doing? You know, you put all our lives in danger Yeah.

00:20:21--> 00:20:41

You want to take on Europe because that was a contagious thing you can take on Europe you alone, you know this and the Muslim world was totally disunited at the time. Even one of the greatest stories of the time wrote and he said, Andrew loosers, I landed in Spain at forfarmers provinces at that time in the 1100.

00:20:44--> 00:20:50

After they started dividing themselves up, and each province had a man who called himself ameerul momineen.

00:20:52--> 00:20:59

So kwazulu Natal 11 Amira, mcweeny Katanga live and Amir meaning we're not far away from them in case

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

I mean it's not a joke in fact, to say it became a joke

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

that every community has been

00:21:10--> 00:21:14

so divided was the oma so they all are say to him people say to surrounding

00:21:16--> 00:21:22

our room or macaroon last Akela they said to him in one sentence also that the

00:21:23--> 00:21:36

the Romans the West Europeans are a an ocean was no shows that what you don't stand a chance and you're waking up this big elephant and we all going to suffer

00:21:37--> 00:21:50

because elephant in the lesson today we carried on. Eventually the Pope's are taking notice of Safa Dean, and he started the largest crusade in history, the Fourth Crusade.

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

He brought together the armies of the whole of Europe, including England.

00:22:02--> 00:22:09

And the Pope was so serious about this crusade that he asked the kings of the countries to lead their own armies to Palestine.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

To the King of England,

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

Richard the Lionheart ladies army,

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

Frederick Barbarossa, the king of Germany, ladies out army,

00:22:21--> 00:22:44

and the other countries all lead their own armies. And you can imagine if the king of a country leads his army, he leads the biggest army because this was it for the Muslims. Now, the Salahuddin had to be taught a lesson. And they said Barbarossa Barbarossa means right bat Arabia, King of of Germany. He has an army of 300,000. Now that time, when you mentioned 300,000 people fainted?

00:22:46--> 00:23:06

Because Can you imagine army of 300,000 Salahuddin probably a couple of 1000. Yeah, that was that the German army, the English army, and the French army came was all the ships mentioned ships and Navy ships. They came by sea, and the Germans couldn't find enough boats. So they came overland 300,000 overland

00:23:08--> 00:23:10

and they all decided they were going to join the jihad.

00:23:12--> 00:23:22

But when they got to Syria proper to Sham they turned around and deserted the ammunition when they add this Japanese coming with 300,000 is a no no, no, no, no, no, no.

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

We can't participate. This is too big. And of course all I'm always finding an excuse.

00:23:30--> 00:23:42

What I always say well, you know, we should have sold this. Of course they said you know, finally some of them said you know this is not even an Arab you know, like we follow him he's occurred he doesn't even speak Arabic properly.

00:23:44--> 00:23:57

And he should have consulted as was referred to I mean, who gave him the right you know to start attacking and not doing it with counsel in consultation with us. You know, the first consult us you know, if the same situation Yeah, you know, we have the situation.

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

So they ran away from the battlefield when they heard

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

and the shows us that are not infallible.

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

No, no, no. You can't see my shift sector. La La quwata illa Billah. Like we say my father's Ah, oh, la la la, la la, la la. What must we say? Allah says so.

00:24:26--> 00:24:35

So, why Allah manatee fallible because the owner not ambia then a profit and loss Hunter, the ordinary people

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

whether they will go

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

to a loss.

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

Of course, I'm not generalizing,

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

let's say all Allah.

00:24:49--> 00:24:58

What I'm saying but then always, of course, we know they'll always be scholars and all our lead people to the truth. But you can't follow all of them because you don't know where they're going to take you.

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

But they'll always be the rightly guided and the righteous Allah that will lead us inshallah to Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Today,

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

like at that time we living in a time

00:25:15--> 00:25:18

when the alhama are judged by how famous they are

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

time it was the same Allah appointed by the courts of the kings leave appointed by the court of the king, you're famous and you became an ally.

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

And of course, this is not the right sign. You can't judge a man because he's famous.

00:25:35--> 00:25:54

But because we caught up in this whole thing about the you YouTube, but the internet and the way you look, you know, you must have the look, you must have the following. Doesn't matter. Nothing else matters. You know, like Zuma, you know, if you cut the look at the following. He wears the suit, he makes the speech. He's the person.

00:26:02--> 00:26:03

Evening Kathy.

00:26:05--> 00:26:20

Because the man who wrote the great history of Islam, he wrote a book I'll add B Daya when Nehemiah. Finally great out of seals apart he wrote this book, the higher the die on the ayah which, in which he writes about the history of man from Adam until the end of the world.

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

All taken from the Quran and Sunnah.

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

And the history of the Middle East and Eastern Muslims.

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

So Salahuddin

00:26:40--> 00:26:42

carried on with the struggle,

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

people were nervous machine to escape out of Europe was coming to them.

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

And they will go totally disunited.

00:26:53--> 00:27:01

The Shia and the Sudanese were at war, the party midtech took over Egypt. She has ruled Egypt, and most of the Levant, Palestine.

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

So there's good disunity among Islam.

00:27:11--> 00:27:15

The same situation that moves hours in Muslims when

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

Musa was standing

00:27:19--> 00:27:26

on the shores of the Red Sea, with fear out at his back in the sea in front of him, when the Jews came and said, Musa,

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

you promised us that we're going to be saved. What are you going to do now? Where are we going to go? And he said, can lie in an IRA Besides, he said, I have with me, my Lord, my Lord will guide me unless it is almost a tiger stick, knocked on the rock, the sea opened and the Jew who saved

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

so today, Frederick Barbarossa was 300,000 came.

00:27:53--> 00:27:58

And eventually, he reached a stream just a sip of water.

00:27:59--> 00:28:10

Does oh man are in the 70s. But a great king was very brave. They say the cross you know and and they came with all the armor. He was completely every inch of his body was covered with armor.

00:28:12--> 00:28:21

So he was crossing the stream that wasn't even up to his waist, and his horse bolted. He fell off his horse and he died.

00:28:24--> 00:28:29

There were many explanations as to why died got arthritis and somebody said well,

00:28:30--> 00:28:38

to cover all our bases, he stopped breathing. You can speculate until you are blue in the Facebook. He died because he basically stopped breathing.

00:28:40--> 00:28:46

So yeah, was the biggest army 300,000 without the leader leaders are very important not like today.

00:28:50--> 00:28:58

Eventually, when they reached Sham, there was only 1000 soldiers left of the 300,000 the race went back home

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

by the son Barbarossa son.

00:29:04--> 00:29:14

His father made a pledge to him and said to my son, I am not going to go back to Germany until I put my foot on the soil of the Holy Land Palestine

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

and in San Juan the to fulfill his father's pledge. And what he did was because he was there was no a bombing at the time he boiled him,

00:29:26--> 00:29:33

boiled him, put him in a vat folded with vinegar, so that he won't deteriorate and took him

00:29:34--> 00:29:40

to Palestine what happened on the road was because people when they

00:29:41--> 00:29:54

when they when they die, they start they start blowing up with gases. So this whole thing exploded on the back of the thing and he was buried along the along the road. So that is our allows for hunger that changed the course of history.

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

That changed the whole course of history. Salahuddin won the battle

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

save the day save Palestine cave, which is back I mean, the stories that give me a theory of nicotine says if

00:30:11--> 00:30:48

Frederick Barbarossa had managed to get his Crusader army to Jerusalem. Today, we would have said yes, there was a time when Egypt was Muslim and Palestine was Muslim, and said he was Muslim and Jordan was Muslim. And that would have been the result, the result of being the whole of Bard would have been converted to Catholicism. Like we say today, Spain was Muslim 500 years of Islam, can you imagine? Five not 50 not not 50 years 500 years of Islam God because of the this unification of Muslims, so allows one color then

00:30:51--> 00:30:54

intervened in the circumstances of today.

00:30:57--> 00:31:05

History repeats itself. Believe it or not, if I tell you that today we find ourselves in the same

00:31:06--> 00:31:09

geopolitical situation as Safa Dean.

00:31:13--> 00:31:27

We are weak, this united solution Thus, we don't know what the future holds, then what's gonna happen in Syria? We don't know what's gonna happen. We don't know period. We don't mind anything anyway.

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

And I believe, having read the details of the situation, that we are, in effect in a better situation, from a unity point of view than the Muslims of that time.

00:31:39--> 00:31:44

Machines are more disunited at that time than they were today than they are today.

00:31:50--> 00:31:55

So, to sum it up, we're in the same situation as Aladdin was.

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

But why so many things happened to us today?

00:32:01--> 00:32:07

Because our laws about how Natal is preparing us for the next stage of the history of the world.

00:32:10--> 00:32:12

As the next stage of the history of the world,

00:32:14--> 00:32:34

is referred to by the Navy salatu salam, when he emphasized certain countries in his a hadith with an emphasis on spoke about the time in which we live now, after is a man, he mentioned certain countries over and over again, in his deliberations with his companions.

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

These areas are number one, Iraq, number two Horus on

00:32:42--> 00:32:46

modern day horizontes avani, Stan in the outline the surrounding areas.

00:32:49--> 00:32:59

Sham means Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, and Yemen and Yemen, and more particularly South Yemen.

00:33:01--> 00:33:03

We attorneys, southern part of Yemen.

00:33:06--> 00:33:12

Let us look at the history of this, of these names with properly mentioned Iraq and Sham and Yemen.

00:33:14--> 00:33:18

Let us look at the back of the world just 20 years ago,

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

just 20 years ago.

00:33:21--> 00:33:28

And if we look at the map of the world just 20 years ago, and to look at South Africa about say 20 years ago, say 25 years ago,

00:33:29--> 00:33:36

if somebody had told you 25 years ago, that this country would have a black president, you'd have laughed in his face.

00:33:38--> 00:33:47

I remember in the early 80s, I went with a religious delegation to Zambia. That was the time when all the leaders of the ANC was in exile.

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

And they couldn't come back to the African we went to meet them in Zambia.

00:33:55--> 00:34:20

People like Becky, and all the rest of the top ANC leadership we met in Zambia, when I came back was the man with Britain at the time. And I say to the people that I am absolutely convinced that this country will have a black president. And they looked at me shocked to see how could you say that? A cave. a caveman is going to be president of this country. No, no, no, no, no, no.

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

It was no impossible to believe and where are we today?

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

28 cents. We're here today.

00:34:32--> 00:34:48

And today, of course we are. We are sad, very sad. In that probably we've lost the greatest human being of the 20th century. Human Being of the 20th century a man who had prophetic qualities. man who was generous in victory.

00:34:51--> 00:35:00

A man who was tolerant with his enemies. Man was quick to forgive a great man, a man that the whole world recognized.

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

To be an icon of the 20th 21st century, and we give our condolences to his family and to the rest of South Africa.

00:35:10--> 00:35:19

We can't make to ask for him. But we recognize the greatest ally through his greatness, we have become great and the country's become great.

00:35:20--> 00:35:22

And we have become a role model.

00:35:24--> 00:35:31

In terms of the changes we brought about non violently to the rest of the world, and the world recognizes this. And we should recognize,

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

and we should be proud that you have a man like that who had a man like that in our midst.

00:35:39--> 00:35:40

So a lot of

00:35:41--> 00:35:49

20 years, where was iraq 20 years ago, 20 years ago, and I was a student of history my whole life, if somebody had told me 20 years ago,

00:35:50--> 00:35:55

that Iraq was going to become one of the forefront of the lens of jihad out of nonsense.

00:35:57--> 00:36:05

Iraq was a bath of state. One of the first qualifications to be a bath is whether you in sitio in Iraq was you had to be non religious.

00:36:07--> 00:36:17

Secondly, it was a secular state, and a nationalist state. It wasn't about Islam. It is about animism about being an Arab, as opposed to being anything else.

00:36:21--> 00:36:40

Afghanistan 20 years ago was a communist state. If somebody had told me 20 years ago, that Iran is done at every single job in the world today. It's Genesis would be in Afghanistan was a combi Soviet Union is ruling the country, it's a completely communist state, godless state.

00:36:44--> 00:36:45

If somebody told me that

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

20 years ago, Southern Yama would be

00:36:53--> 00:37:05

the birthplace of a lot of geologists, and a new movement, a new revival amongst Muslims, or a commie because Yemen at that time was the only Arab communist state.

00:37:08--> 00:37:17

We know what communism was about. communism was about shutting down merges, killing Allah, not being able to make Salah not being able to read the Quran, it was communism,

00:37:19--> 00:37:20

and look where we are today.

00:37:22--> 00:37:26

So, allows Mahabharata Allah then

00:37:31--> 00:37:32

wants us to sit up

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

and smell the coffee.

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

And we can only do that when we know the history that we have. We can we can know the future. All learn Quran had images to read the right book, which is the Quran and we need to read our history

00:37:50--> 00:37:56

that we will know that we standing that allies prepare the ground for the big victory of Islam.

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

avani Stan to communist country became the birthplace of jihad free civilian, you know, 20 years ago, I visited the Middle East the Levon Jordan

00:38:15--> 00:38:19

was in Beirut. 1973

00:38:20--> 00:38:26

by root was a city of nightclubs, for sub

00:38:28--> 00:38:35

city of nightclubs. It was called the Paris of the East. It was the party capital of the Arab world.

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

Particular capital veritable.

00:38:40--> 00:38:45

I was in Damascus 1973 the massacres was like Paris.

00:38:46--> 00:39:07

I was a young man, I was totally shocked out of my brains because I just come from Hajj and I was on my way to Egypt. So this is the mascus Salahuddin is buried here. Now visa is going to come out the visa will come back all the girls waiting, or pens in Damascus at the time, the shorter blond and blue eyed Texas Syrians, we look like Europeans.

00:39:08--> 00:39:11

There was not a semblance of Islam, mostly empty.

00:39:12--> 00:39:16

In Paris common event is the first type of project imagine losses anyone suffer.

00:39:18--> 00:39:28

The Palestinians were saying because God because He put us in this situation. There was only 20 years ago, they became multicam started in Palestine. The whole situation changed

00:39:29--> 00:39:31

today at the forefront

00:39:33--> 00:39:36

of opposition to those who want to destroy

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

the martyr of Islam in the world.

00:39:43--> 00:39:46

Palestine is the only country in the world where people celebrate Shahada.

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

When somebody dies as a child in Palestine, they have like a wedding ceremony put up a tent in the middle of the road. And they have people come and greet them and they serve sweet meats and so forth and so on.

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

At some of these gatherings,

00:40:07--> 00:40:25

funny Sandy can deal with the highest illiteracy rates in the world. You see, we are always taken by, you know today we must become this and we will become that and we must challenge the ways on the ground will become technologically advanced and we must have this you must have money and we must have land, and you must have power.

00:40:29--> 00:40:37

And despite that we losing all the time. So the question we have Muslim billionaires amongst us has which ever changed the community

00:40:39--> 00:40:49

which is our life. We have probably today the biggest concentration in Cape Town of professionals, people who have gone

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

to the highest levels of learning

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

at our universities, here and overseas

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

are rapidly in the last since 1994.

00:41:02--> 00:41:03

Ways to change

00:41:08--> 00:41:10

when I was a young child, we were all equally poor.

00:41:13--> 00:41:16

And we love each other equally, because we're all equally poor.

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

Today we have so much

00:41:22--> 00:41:23

and no love.

00:41:24--> 00:41:29

We're just individuals that come together on a Friday and we disperse

00:41:30--> 00:41:48

because we have set our targets we having it set in the West. Our moral compass is where so now we must compete you know we have become like them. The hola La quwata illa de la la la de Levy, Salam says

00:41:50--> 00:41:51

and the final.

00:41:54--> 00:41:58

So all this is preparation, a funny story, what is happening there and so forth and so on. All these things is preparation.

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

And what is coming, what is the next thing it's going to happen? The next thing is going to happen is

00:42:08--> 00:42:17

is called El Mundo Hama el cobre NaVi Salam refers to Alma lamb al Cobra, what is el mal hamal Cobra, the great battle

00:42:18--> 00:42:21

between believers and disbelievers

00:42:23--> 00:42:29

it's going to be an epic battle is getting to be a battle way to lose it all or win it all.

00:42:30--> 00:42:32

You know, there was a time when a man could build

00:42:33--> 00:42:39

could conquer a mountain boulder castle on that mountain and all that mountain for centuries against all enemies.

00:42:41--> 00:42:48

Today, you send a drone over that mountain drop a bomb on the castle, you destroy the mountain and the castle and the man

00:42:49--> 00:42:50

with one bomb.

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

So today, that battle will be that kind of battle. We know that we'll lose all that one.

00:43:02--> 00:43:37

An American injustice will find you wherever you are. Whether you are in Yemen, in South Africa, wherever you are, they believe that they can take you out. So we have our backs against the wall. But allows says vice Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that this major battle will come in which form and how we don't know. But there will be a battle what will happen after this battle, so they'll be better. So what it will be a battle and after the battle in the international khilafah will again be established on the world.

00:43:38--> 00:43:47

What does it mean? It means that Muslims again will have one single leader that will lead every single Muslim on the face of the earth.

00:43:48--> 00:43:55

One Khalifa one Amara one leader that will lead the Muslims.

00:43:56--> 00:44:19

That will be the result of the sacrifice that people will make at this war in the Navy Salam says a third of the army that will take that will enter into this battle will desert the battlefield one third of the army remember these are the best men that will be chosen for this battle. One third of them will leave what is that the battlefield and the prophets of Salaam said and those third

00:44:20--> 00:44:24

men third of the men will leave the battlefield. Allah will not accept the Toba

00:44:27--> 00:44:28

even after the death.

00:44:34--> 00:44:39

Of course lots of things will still happen after the key lab will be established. But that jar will still come.

00:44:40--> 00:44:48

The Jews modules as people say will come and there will be many as but we now in that era, it can happen now. To see the upheavals.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

As I say 20 years ago, the world was adrift just 20 years ago. So it could be another 20 years you could be living in a totally different world and that battle could have taken

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

plays in will be part of this battle. And that is why they won I must say this is the golden era of

00:45:06--> 00:45:11

the golden era of us and we can't change the course of the divine plan.

00:45:13--> 00:45:18

The divine plan is the plan of we there no other plans. You think you've got a plan sorry.

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

And the final one will be

00:45:25--> 00:45:35

the final one will be the taste of this oma to participate in the defense of what he believes to be no room for fences.

00:45:36--> 00:45:54

And tele trials and tribulations will come allow fatherless Asian Surah Tauba surah nine verse 16. Am hassy bottom and to Turku Allah Allah Allah Allah Vina j j e domain comm jaha domain comm while ami attacchi do mean do Nila you

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

wa rasuluh he will mean in our region

00:46:02--> 00:46:08

allows father that says to us Do you think that I will leave you are Muslims and tested

00:46:11--> 00:46:23

that I will not make sure as your Lord who of you will take participate in the defense of Islam? And you will you will go to the enemy and choose them as your leaders as your benchmarks.

00:46:28--> 00:46:34

I mean, how many of us really study the city of Mohammed Salah Alma Baba Quran say

00:46:35--> 00:46:38

I run my life according to this to the rules of these people.

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

Or it's a hobby

00:46:42--> 00:46:47

or Iran, my whatever my life, my family, my business make

00:46:49--> 00:46:51

my steady studying my friends.

00:46:53--> 00:46:55

These are the markers that I set for myself.

00:46:57--> 00:47:01

And how many times we sit around the dinner table and talk about

00:47:03--> 00:47:08

the examples that we take ourselves because when we talk about this around the table,

00:47:09--> 00:47:10

our children Yes.

00:47:12--> 00:47:15

They may not listen to us. But the Yes.

00:47:19--> 00:47:21

And one day they will say I heard my father say,

00:47:22--> 00:47:31

you know heard my father one day, you know, I wasn't listening. Because my father talks a lot of you know, he's an old man. So he talks a lot of things. But really I heard him say this and that, you know.

00:47:33--> 00:47:38

And he said this and he said that and he said he he's Dreyfus like this and and i think he was absolutely correct.

00:47:41--> 00:47:55

But you don't leave a marker behind where the good to get this from. He had to drop these things to drop it and leave it to impress upon force he can convince, talk about the very light.

00:47:56--> 00:48:11

But you leave it I remember lots of things I remember when my father, when I went my mom and my dad, we went home went for hygiene. I went to Egypt and we were sitting on the plane here at the airport.

00:48:12--> 00:48:28

Long time ago. More than 40 years ago. You say to me fight my child, my son. You're going to learn the deen of Allah I want to warn you sit one hour the young chap just out of university with my a was quite long term.

00:48:30--> 00:48:32

Give me some idea of kind of guy was

00:48:34--> 00:48:43

he said, You know you leaving, said you know, I must tell you that you've already you've got 1000s of enemies said what do you mean we have 1000s of enemies?

00:48:44--> 00:48:45

make sense to me.

00:48:46--> 00:48:53

So I'm going to study you now to try and study the deen of Allah. Joy. People should say no, no, no, no.

00:48:54--> 00:48:57

I said what I see too Who are these people who are getting into enemies you say?

00:48:59--> 00:49:05

They don't know you and you don't know them. But just because you're going to study the deen of Allah people not going to like

00:49:06--> 00:49:11

this. I said Really? How is that he said that is the reality of life

00:49:12--> 00:49:14

is that is the reality of life.

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

And you must be able to contend with the reality of life.

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

And he said to me, so therefore, never try and please people only please Allah.

00:49:28--> 00:49:34

If you're going to go away from Cape Town and spend your young life to study the deal, to come back to the people in the love you forget about.

00:49:37--> 00:49:42

He said you have to understand that this is about Allah and the love are lost.

00:49:44--> 00:49:46

And if you want to change this path,

00:49:47--> 00:49:51

it's not like you know, you make nice lectures to people and we all embrace. People underestimate you.

00:49:53--> 00:49:57

They're going to insult you. They're going to curse you. They're going to do all kinds of things to you.

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

In the city, ma'am Shafi I said,

00:50:05--> 00:50:13

hire to learn to drunk. You I'm sharp you said that to gain the

00:50:14--> 00:50:22

satisfaction of people is an objective that no man can reach. Not even Mattel alone.

00:50:25--> 00:50:37

We are 2 billion, 6 billion people who don't like us and don't like him either. So now last one, I'm going to give in Sharla, that we, the reason I'm giving these lectures is not maybe the end, or whatever it is

00:50:38--> 00:50:41

more for you to go and think about your history.

00:50:42--> 00:50:48

And think about Allah divinity history. And think about what an evisa salam says about time.

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

And about what is happening in our time that we are aware of what Allah farmer is demanding from us in this time in which we live. And may Allah subhanaw taala give, that He guides us because, you know, we live in a world where we think this is the life you know, c'est la vie, you know, this is the life you know, this must be the life. Everybody is living this life.

00:51:13--> 00:51:17

But we are confined to this part of Table Mountain, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:51:18--> 00:51:22
