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

I was asked a question

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

regarding the importance of unity.

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

Now I'm pretty sure

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

every single Muslim understands

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

the importance of

00:00:41--> 00:00:52

a community built on unity, built on cooperation, built on love, and genuine true brotherhood.

00:00:54--> 00:01:00

What I can remember is that the story, which you all have heard many times,

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

which is the story of the three balls.

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

This

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

parable

00:01:11--> 00:01:15

is one of the most important stories

00:01:16--> 00:01:24

that clearly illustrate to us. The significance of

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

brotherhood.

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

The significance of unity, the importance

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

of being together,

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

United we stand,

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

divided we fall.

00:01:44--> 00:01:50

United, we stand, but divided, we fall.

00:01:54--> 00:01:58

The ones leaved three balls, a red, black and white ball.

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

These three balls were extremely united, powerful when strung

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

together.

00:02:10--> 00:02:19

They grazed the sweet, lush, tasty, beautiful, green grass

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

together,

00:02:22--> 00:02:35

United they stood, powerful, courageous, strong, effective, and touchable and unbeatable.

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

Together they lived

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

or repeat. Together, they live

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

against all odds.

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

They lived although they were surrounded

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

by powerful, strong,

00:02:58--> 00:03:03

ferocious, hungry and chained wild beasts.

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

But they live together, United

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

nearby,

00:03:13--> 00:03:17

there was a powerful, ferocious, hungry lion.

00:03:19--> 00:03:27

He lay in ambush he laying not far from these three books, hoping,

00:03:29--> 00:03:34

just hoping to make them he is free.

00:03:36--> 00:03:41

But he realized that it is impossible

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

absolutely impossible

00:03:45--> 00:03:56

to contain with three united or repeat united balls. So what did he do?

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

He plotted them plotted.

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

He fought and fought.

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

And he came up with the most brilliant strategy for his predicament,

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

strategy or tactic that is utilized

00:04:16--> 00:04:26

by the greatest military generals of the world in order for them to become triumphant upon their opponents.

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

And we all know what these strategies

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

were the greatest strategies to defeat your enemy.

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

And that is divide and conquer.

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

Divide and defaced,

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

divide and devour.

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

a strategy that we will succeed to ever utilize

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

so

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

He's powerful line.

00:05:02--> 00:05:13

He goes to the black and red bull while the white board was awake. Not far but a little away from these tuples

00:05:14--> 00:05:35

and he argues with them. I am ferocious. I am powerful. I am hungry but you see that white boy over there? He's talking to her to the red and black bow to the gorillas of that wineland so he says to them to he see that white boy over there

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

he's a threat

00:05:40--> 00:05:56

to both of you see, what is his increase? He's creating. He's creating fi he's creating a scare tactic. He's creating suspicion

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

he wants to divide

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

say that white bullies into them

00:06:04--> 00:06:14

that white ball is a threat to you if you allow him to live Why? Because there is why complexation

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

he gives you a way is it

00:06:19--> 00:06:33

10 is the enemy see how they work they induce they induce in you v towards others and the others are supposed to be your brother's

00:06:36--> 00:06:48

so they thought and thought about this situation maybe it's true. Maybe does give us away? Maybe he's too conspicuous.

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

What do we do? They sat together

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

they fought together. They spoke to each other

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

and they came with a conclusion

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

a conclusion which is the worst thing ever

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

a catastrophic consequence

00:07:16--> 00:07:21

that wouldn't reach or lead them to their ultimate end

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

they gave in to the lions plot

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

what they do

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

they gave in

00:07:32--> 00:07:44

at a fee for their own welfare and a fee for their surrounding the beautiful sweet lush green grass. The beautiful life the beautiful

00:07:46--> 00:07:49

the beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful place again

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

as long as we're taking no problem

00:07:55--> 00:07:57

and in no time

00:07:58--> 00:08:06

the powerful canines that powerful ferocious canines that line the deep

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

into the wide Bull's neck

00:08:13--> 00:08:20

and as he wasn't breathing this Paul white bull his last breaths here looked

00:08:21--> 00:08:29

towards his brother red and black bow look for desperate a desperate help need

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

Yeah, when

00:08:33--> 00:08:34

he was crying out to him

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

Oh brother, where are your you're watching me being eaten.

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

That's a story.

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

And they did not

00:08:47--> 00:08:50

know did only nothing. They boycotted

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

their friend.

00:08:54--> 00:09:03

Their security, their safety, their strength, their unity, but most importantly they boy or their brother.

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

They boycotted they

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

amputated him as though he does not exist.

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

Time

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

went by

00:09:23--> 00:09:30

the line as a fullback. He's strong he's full. He went away

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

But did he go away? Really?

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

Don't forget this is a plot

00:09:40--> 00:09:44

there are three big giant massive mills

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

and the only way he's gonna destroy them. And he amen he is to divine

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

Time went past he came back only this time yeah Shut up. He came back to what

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

Week

00:10:02--> 00:10:08

Two is weaker than three, it was a weaker five

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

divide and devour

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

the easy strategy.

00:10:18--> 00:10:26

So he still knew that it could not be thin or be or contain with too strong You know, I think both.

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

So he went to the red ball

00:10:32--> 00:10:40

and argued and argued, I am this and I am that I am ferocious and hungry and powerful.

00:10:41--> 00:10:48

As long as you allow me the blackball, I will leave you in peace.

00:10:49--> 00:10:52

He will leave in what in peace.

00:10:54--> 00:11:07

was not that the first condition of it in the wine bowl that he leaves them in place? Does the enemy ever want to leave you in peace? Absolutely not. Then ever ever feel secure

00:11:09--> 00:11:14

than ever, ever feel secure. When it comes to those who do not like you?

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

And then how much they pamper you. pep talk you sweet talk you no matter how much they show they love you never, ever feel secure.

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

So you guys up to the Red Bull, any arguments back

00:11:35--> 00:11:44

and I am powerful. And I am hungry. And as long as you allow me that Black Bull, your brother. I will leave.

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

Now the Red Bull.

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

V the entity

00:11:52--> 00:12:05

he looked at is surrounding beautiful lush, sweet, green grass. Tasty and tasty. They think that dunya is tasty, is tasty.

00:12:07--> 00:12:27

It's a mirage. It's a delusion. There's no taste in it. There's no sweetness. It may seem that way. It's nothing but a delusion. It's not there. So the Red Bull looked around Florida his welfare

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

became scared

00:12:31--> 00:12:32

to the public.

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

He boycotted his brother black.

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

forgetting what happened earlier on.

00:12:43--> 00:12:49

Sorry, new time. The powerful canines dug deep

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

into the red into the black bulls neck.

00:12:55--> 00:13:05

And as he was breathing his love breaths handled that his brother, his brother, Red Bull, and he did nothing.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

Yeah, help me.

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

Yeah, musqueam me. Okay, okay.

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

I'm still eating.

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

The line went

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

bigger. is succeeding.

00:13:31--> 00:13:34

He's winning the game here. He is a smarter

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

time

00:13:40--> 00:13:49

elapsed. Naturally, he's gonna get hungry again. Correct. So again, he comes back to what?

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

There is no more competition.

00:13:54--> 00:14:01

There is no more arguments. There is no more challenge. There is no fight.

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

He stood

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

before the Red Bull

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

and the Red Bull. As soon as he saw him, he long

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

in the innermost regions of inspiration, powerful hungry eyes and saw only one thing. He thought that enveloping him.

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

He's now to kill.

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

He's won the game.

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

And in no time being by himself, powerless, weak, vulnerable, defenseless. No brother. No strength, no unity, no security. He let them all go. He let his guard down. He let his shield down. He let his brothers died before his very eyes. He was the last

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

To be

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

killed.

00:15:06--> 00:15:25

So in no time, the powerful canines wrapped around the white, the Red Bulls neck, that deep into his neck, all the way to his carotid thing. And as he was breathing his last breath, he cried out

00:15:26--> 00:15:32

a statement that should be written in gold, or kindo, yo ma paqueta total.

00:15:35--> 00:15:41

I was killed, not today, but the day the white bull was killed.

00:15:43--> 00:15:49

He cried out, I was killed, I was a twin. The day

00:15:50--> 00:16:18

when I allowed my brother to be taken, and my brother to be taken, I signed my death certificate thing. I signed my execution, then I have been on death row ever since I allow my brother and my brother and my strength by unity, my security, my everything.

00:16:20--> 00:16:25

Due to my own desire, due to my own math,

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

pants, this is the result.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

This is the importance of unity.

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

Do we see how important unity is?

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

Brothers? Can you imagine

00:16:44--> 00:16:48

a community which is built on unity?

00:16:50--> 00:16:53

Who loves each other for one reason?

00:16:55--> 00:17:08

For the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Can you imagine a community that Allah Allah, because they love one another, only for his sake.

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

Now what

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

or who can ever then

00:17:21--> 00:17:25

or penetrate into such strength

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

loves you for that reason? Who can harm you?

00:17:34--> 00:17:42

If Allah loves you for that reason, who can ever plot against you and succeed? Impossible

00:17:44--> 00:17:59

if Allah loves you because of what you are doing, which is uniting on his love, holding together on his love, who wouldn't know well can prevent you from progress.

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

Who in the weld

00:18:03--> 00:18:19

brothers understand this Brotherhood is man unity in his family is a likened to a pair of hands, I want to say a pair of jeans.

00:18:20--> 00:18:24

It's likened to a pair of hands.

00:18:26--> 00:18:30

One of which washes the other.

00:18:32--> 00:18:44

And the post of them once he interlaced in Pilates hands his fingers like this, to demonstrate the importance of true Brotherhood in Islam.

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

Now, if you have grace,

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

on the back of your hand,

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

can you wash it off?

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

You cannot

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

you need the other sister, but boy yourself that grace that field will remain on your head. So the other hand complements, assists, benefits, aid helps, please.

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

The other hand

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

Can you see the importance of brotherhood?

00:19:29--> 00:19:33

Can you see the significance of brotherhood

00:19:34--> 00:19:41

one of which washes clean benefits a better

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

so if you see your brother, which is your other hand

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

in trouble.

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

You jump to it.

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

Not only you think might be there so I might be that too. I might lose this

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

Mothers that?

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

What

00:20:05--> 00:20:14

nonsense. Are you really believing in? What brother? Do you believe? It's not the Brotherhood of Islam

00:20:15--> 00:20:22

as the Brotherhood of the dunya, which is empty, no substance.

00:20:24--> 00:20:43

Which is why he was saying the body wants to mention this into this profound explanation of brotherhood for life is so profound. He wanted to want to a man, his companion. He said, Does one of you place his hand

00:20:45--> 00:20:59

in the pocket? Or in the earth, of his brother of his one brother without his permission, and take what he needs?

00:21:00--> 00:21:01

The man said, No,

00:21:02--> 00:21:05

no, no one does this.

00:21:06--> 00:21:07

He said, Whoa.

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

This is true, brother.

00:21:12--> 00:21:17

This is not true, genuine brother.

00:21:20--> 00:21:24

In Islam, what we saw all the time love for your brother.

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

When you don't even

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

owe

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

them there. I'm baka mahabodhi, Nevsky

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

Nasus.

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

Where can we talk?

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

We can jump 50 hurdles,

00:21:46--> 00:21:57

that when it comes to the reality of proving your true love for your brother, you know where to the see

00:21:58--> 00:22:07

how profound these dis explanation of brotherhood honestly, how profound like, Can you put your hand in your brother's purse?

00:22:08--> 00:22:15

Or your brother's pocket? Without him even knowing? That's probably this is probably

00:22:17--> 00:22:23

without even knowing it, take what you need. Can you really do this? You think about

00:22:25--> 00:22:29

it, bro, brother came to you and saw your wallet, per se.

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

And his brother is in need of paying his rent.

00:22:35--> 00:22:46

And he saw a bunch of notes in there. And you don't even know that he's looking at that. And he removes it. And then I told you Yeah, I took some money for the rent.

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

See what a test. What would you say?

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

What would you say?

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

This is the examination.

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

This is true. Brother.

00:23:01--> 00:23:06

This is the true meaning of Hawaii. in them and me Nuna

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

00:23:14--> 00:23:19

all love you, bro. Love you, bro. a handshake. I love you, man.

00:23:21--> 00:23:26

And when the crunch comes and he comes? Yeah, Ryan, he loved me.

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

He loved me.

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

He just a big mouth. That's what you

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

didn't love him in reality.

00:23:38--> 00:23:46

You In fact, count standing. Because words are cheap. But actions are very expensive. Ally.

00:23:47--> 00:23:54

We heard about the narration which I mentioned a few weeks ago. Ibrahim Adama

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

what a man he was

00:23:58--> 00:23:59

he was traveling to Jerusalem.

00:24:01--> 00:24:01

A lot.

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

What will make you know what he was gonna miss?

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

And a man comes right to him and say, Yeah,

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

I want to be your companion and travel. I want to be your brother in travel. Is it in

00:24:21--> 00:24:27

a travel gear the mean of this? I want to be your brother in travel.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

What does this mean?

00:24:31--> 00:24:45

So Abraham was examining these individual if he understood what he's saying, because he's saying I want to be your brother in travel means so much.

00:24:47--> 00:24:48

So he said to him

00:24:50--> 00:24:56

he was examining him. Yes, no problem, but under one condition.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

You want to be my companion. My brother

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

Trouble

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

that

00:25:04--> 00:25:05

one condition?

00:25:06--> 00:25:21

What is the Abraham whatever it's Tommy, all up to me Your brother in trouble. He said to him, as long as I have equal rights to your belonging

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

have equal rights to your your goods, your

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

man's equal rights.

00:25:35--> 00:25:42

My stuff, I work hard for my money. I work hard. I work hard what I have equal rights?

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

He goes, Yeah, if I can't do that.

00:25:48--> 00:25:50

So Abraham said to him,

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

I admire your sincerity.

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

In other words,

00:25:57--> 00:26:09

done play games, then say you want to be my brother in travel. But you don't want to fulfill the meaning of Brother, brother.

00:26:11--> 00:26:14

Brothers, do you understand? What brotherhood means?

00:26:16--> 00:26:19

Do you really understand this word?

00:26:21--> 00:26:25

Many, many, many, many, many of us do not understand it.

00:26:27--> 00:26:33

All we know is how to viciously and savagely launch attacks on one another

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

ally.

00:26:37--> 00:26:44

All we knows how to envy one another, back by one another. Hurt one another.

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

That's all we do.

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

This is not

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

even the enemies out there. Don't do this.

00:26:54--> 00:26:58

The enemies out there, then do what we do to one another.

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

And yet we call each other we're brothers were united under one unison.

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

If a man came to another man today, if I'm against them hammer today and said your

00:27:17--> 00:27:33

brother, you've got two cars sitting in your driveway. And I'm in desperate need for one of your cars. I need to take my family to the hospital. Or I'm just a need to go to work. Or I'm in need of your car. That sitting underneath your carport that you're not using

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

that you know that other than

00:27:38--> 00:27:42

if you set it to commit in a coma did not give him that guy he will be committing a scene.

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

This is when

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

fishes loving

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

your brother

00:27:53--> 00:27:56

or your love for your brother what you love for yourself

00:27:57--> 00:27:59

than ever that your brother be sad.

00:28:01--> 00:28:17

And you still see seeing in a sad state and you just allow it to be asking you Okay, what's the problem? How can I help you in that book happy today. This was the son of the greatest man that lived on this earth. So

00:28:19--> 00:28:48

that was a sinner. Whenever he saw a companion in a state of depression was a state of sadness. He was safe well then why are you such in a sad state? It was a my brother struggling, struggling no matter what section of life struggling in. I want to go and see why he's struggling how I can help this brother of mine in the best way possible.

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

Not just turn my back on him.
