And so Michigan AppStore is very important to Muslims.
This piece of land came into the Muslim hands in the year 638.
Under the fear of warmer, palm rodeo longtime
were the patriarchs of Chronos. And the Christian world said, we will not hand over most of the upside except to your leader
who has received the message in Medina to munawwara. And he asked the Sahaba around him, Ali, you know, be tall it is the man who gave the Matura and the advice to say that I want to go personally to Mr. Uppsala. He arrived in this holy land without any glory without any poem without any show, without any entourage, and he enters mysteries in Uppsala. He is welcomed by the patriarch who was working for the Roman government. His name was the thoroughness. He took me around and gave him a tour. It was the time of salah and say that I wanted to perform Salah, the Puranas said, Why didn't you perform Salah in the church and look at the foresight of Omar. He said,
I will not perform Salah in your church, simply because tomorrow, I don't want a nation to rise after me who will claim ownership to this land and say, our halifa it's Alaia and so we are the owners of this land.
The treaty signed between the Muslims and non Muslims. And in there he assures everyone freedom of religion, freedom of movement, they were free to practice their own religion. Omar hakab even said to them, that you can settle your disputes and your matters according to your laws. And if you are unhappy and not satisfied, you can come to the Muslims and we will settle your matters according to the Quran and Sunnah. This is how much of tolerance Islam showed to the people around them at that time.
The Christians requested to expel the Jews
is that no Palestine is for everyone who lives in it.
Look at the tolerance of Muslim from 638 to 1099. See, Palestine remained in the hands of Muslims close to four and a half centuries. In 1099, the Crusades invade the holy lands,
and mysteries will absolve falls and Jerusalem falls to the Crusades from 1099 to 1187. for 88 years, no one called out. No sonar performed no religious activities taken from mosquito.
In fact, the Dome of the Rock was turned into a church and Michigan AppStore was turned into a stable way the people used it to keep the horses after 88 years of law chose the men in the personality of salado Deena up around to lolly who liberated mystery drill up saw and after the Battle of hit clean, he came up successful and victorious. And he fell down in such dark glorifying the loss of Hannah wattana once again around was called out for mercy will up saw its dignity was restored. Fast forward in centuries later it falls again in the hands of Muslims. And this time, it's the Ottomans. The Othmani philosopher, which was centuries administered and Grandmaster will
upset under its governance
towards the late 18th century. And most specifically, just before World War One.
The things change in the Middle East.
In 1897, there was a man by the name of Theodore Herzl, who is the founder and the father of Zionism.
And allow me to clarify here that Zionism is not a religion.
Zionism is a political movement founded by Theodore hertz. So there is why even today there are Jews who are devoted to the book oppose Zionism because they understand it's wrong.
So in 1897, this man sends two rabbis Austrian rabbis to Palestine with the intention of relocating the Jews and settling them in their own state. So the rabbi's report back to him, and they say the bride is beautiful, but she's married to somebody else. Meaning the
Palestinian Arab nation.
This did not deter Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism, and he continued to lobby for a Jewish state. And he continued to push the superpowers of the time that they must allocate a piece of land for the Jews. Fast forward in
world war one breaks out the Ottoman Empire sides of Germany.
And unfortunately, they are on the losing end, Germany's defeated in World War One. And after that the League of Nations is developed. The French and the British divide the Middle East. And so Syria and Lebanon fell to the French
and Mesopotamia, Palestine and trans Jordan fell to the British kingdom.
And it was their mandate to oversee these pieces of land
in 1917, that's just after World War One.
The Balfour Declaration, which is the most important part and the turning point in the history of this land,
the British government declares that His Majesty's Government views with favor the establishment in Palestine,
a home for the Jewish nation. And it goes on to say, it clearly understands that there will be no prejudice to civil and religious rights of the non Jewish communities. It was a 67 word document, which changed the history of the land.
And so the British allowed for mass migration to come into what is known today is Israel. At the end of the 19th century, Jews were only 24,000 people in that piece of land, which forms only 5% of the population at that time.
After 1917, and the decades, decades to follow after that, there was mass migration taking place. The Jews across Europe started settling into the Arab lands, and there were huge disputes and arguments and naturally, there was resistance from the Palestinians. In 1947.
The UN decided to divide the land between the Jews and the Arabs.
53 nations voted in favor of dividing the land 13 against it. Naturally, the majority won. And at that time, the Jews were 32% of the population. They were given 56% to 57% of the land. This is broad daylight robbery. The Palestinians and the Arab world rejected that. In 1948, Israel declares itself as an independent state, and the war breaks out between the neighboring countries in Israel. Israel comes out successful and they defeated the Arab nations.
There is widespread oppression and Carnage that ensues after that, in 1948. April, the ninth and the 10th.
Three Mafia gangs fully equipped
the massacre which is known as the nakaba, the catastrophe in the Arab Palestinian history, 430 in the morning,
they storm into the village. They rape the women folk, they butcher the innocent infant children, they loot the valuables, valuables, they destroy properties and belongings, to the extent they would snatch the jewelry of the women, the bracelet, the necklace and whatever they were wearing. And they massacred the entire place. Before 1948 there were 860,000 Palestinians living in the territory and post the 1948 War and the period. More than 531 Palestinian towns were depopulated.
15 military identifiable operations took place with a with a broad villages upon villages to its knees, and they made more than 800,000 people flee the native land. And they they established what we call in South African terms.
people who were the owners of the land today became without the land and the oppression and the carnage continued 1967 another war breaks out and more land is seized by the Israel
and the oppression continues till today process.
What is happening today in Palestine, those people who have studied history would know that the West Bank is divided into three areas, Group A, Group B and Group C. Group A is an autonomous region where Palestinians rule and they are governed in their in the security is also by them. Group B is ruled by the Palestinians but security is by the Israelis. Group C is fully controlled by the Israelis, their security, their governance, in Group C, what water restrictions are so bad, so bad, that they only allow 20 liters purpose and per day.
That's how bad it is. They restrict electricity supply, they restrict water supply, they restrict your movement. There are endless check posts and security posted everywhere you go. It can take you easily two to three hours just getting through one of them. They harass you. They make life difficult and unbearable for the elderly and vulnerable. At times they require critical medical assistance. But because of the checkpoints, mothers who are pregnant, we're about to go into labor are suffering and cannot go through because of the oppressive regime.
And if you study here of
the discrimination look at the walls 700 kilometres on any
huge walls erected on one side poverty on one side paradise for them.
Five Star luxurious lives they are living on the settler side and the on the side. There are restricted in terms of movement in everything else.
And indeed, resilience is found in Palestine brothers and sisters, the amount of these people is something else.
Today they have populated and they continue to annex more and more land. Day by day. They are putting up settlements. They put up a settlement security post and a police station, settlement security post and a police station. And so when they go into any area, they will take land upon land, and slowly they will annex the ground around it also and crab people out without any fear from anybody.
What is happening on the Palestinian side,
they have also put up the fight.
But this is an ill equipped community that does not have armor that does not have machine guns that does not have the activity that Israel produces it has they do not have tankers, they do not have muscles. They do not have what Israel have. But despite all that they are youngsters who are coming out in the face of oppression and facing the tyrants of the time. And Allahu Akbar, they have stood up several times. Several times for the dignity of must've been upset when the metal detectors was put up. investable upside the compounds. The Palestinians came out in the numbers, they made sure that those metal detectors were removed.
Palestine continues to be close to our hearts, brothers and sisters in Islam.
What can we do as the Muslim community?
Number one, we need to understand
that there's a time and there's a place for every oppressive ruler with a low will hold him accountable.
Just as a party did not last in South Africa.
It came to its knees
just as a war brought the British imperialist government down, which ruled over India in many parts of the world. Just as the law brought the French colony down, just hit the law crush the Dutch colony. A law will also crush the oppressive regimes of the time also, what typical pura labneh home llama bola mo was lucky Margarita. Allah says the nations of the past when they became tired and when they
After pressing the subjects under them of losses, we stipulated the time for them and we destroyed them when the time came, but a lysine, which I learned by licky Morita, we have stipulated a time. And that time has to come to pass
just as people in South Africa thought that this is not going to come to an end, and Allah brought the oppressive regime to its knees. They had the military back in, they had the support of many oppressive regimes in the world, Israeli included. But despite that, a lot brought a party down. Because whichever nation established its empire on the premises of oppression, a man never allowed it to succeed, even if it was centuries later, but allow me to break him down. It's time is stipulated and when that time will come, a law will make sure that the full retribution is meted out. We're in Bali mean and
Allah says, and for the oppression for the oppresses
there is a tome in Florida awaiting them. Secondly, brothers, a law has made this a world of empty.
It is a place of test. A lower test oppresses also by giving them power, and allow them test the oppressed also to see how they respond.
In the case of oppressor for them is janam. for them is standing in front of a law for the oppressed ones. For those who are patient, for those who following the commands of a law, a law will elevate the status in this world and the hereafter. When you read one
story fulfill the one a john
D. Allah says we wish to bless and bestow the oppressed ones in this world, we wish to make them the leaders of the world and we wish to make them the inheritors of the land in this world. And the pious slaves of a ma will come when the lead will be returned back to the Muslims. And that is our Eman. But for that we have to be patient and tolerant. If everything happened, on the spur of the moment, if Allah brought accountability undisturbed the moment then this would not have been a world of test.
It would have defeated the purpose of the AMA, what is the objective of the AMA tiama is to serve justice to the extend the words of the Hadees if an animal with horns, attacked an animal without horns, on a day of tiama Allah will grant that animal owns and will tend to take revenge. If this is the justice that a law will beat out in the animal kingdom. Imagine towards the human race. When at the Savannah law or feeling on
the moon. Allah says let the oppressors know that I am not oblivious of what's happening in the world. I'm only allowing spy
and when I strike there is no one that can stop my Adobe my punishment just is a lot destroyed.
Allow me to share this account with you.
The kids came to Pharaoh and he said wakandan Mela Omen calm if Iran etc musawah coma who leaves you to fill out of the affair out? Are you going to leave Musa and his people to do what they want? They're going to cause havoc. So what do you say? So Ducati robina home, when I started UniSA home, we're in the photo Haroon will butcher the children will men slaughter the men and relieve the women folk boy in the photo heroine? We've got the male military backing. We will men slaughter these people and destroy them. And what did musala salatu salam say to his people and what we need to learn is terino Villa was Barrow in Alba de la he read the manga Amina Abadi, when are clean are my
people. Allah help welcome. It is a test for us. It is a test for us a lot help welcome. Be patient.
So they said to musala salatu salam
ala and Tiana. Remember the magic tunnel. Also we don't see any hope. Before you came, you are oppressed. And after you came nothing changed.
We will soon as glory talking about with the promised land.
we wish the victory of a ma
husana salatu salam said have faith in Allah, Allah will destroy your enemy, Allah will give you the land and Allah will make you the rulers of the time. And the same thing we saying to the Muslim Ummah, that Allah has stipulated a time for the oppressors. When the time will come, a law will meet just a law will mete out justice, and the oppressor will become the rulers of the time.
So there's a time stipulated.
The effort needs to continue brothers.
And I need to emphasize here that we need to draw the balance on one side you got spirituality. On one side, you've got activism. The middle path is the path of the Sundar, where you adopt spirituality and together with adopting spirituality, you adopt external means also. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam cried on the night of brother in front of a law, so much so he cried, so much so that his companion abubaker, said Olivia for law. Now take it easy, Allah will help us and the next morning the profitable law place the soldiers in strategic positions.
He took his guard at night, and he took his guard in the morning also. That is the path of the Sunnah of the prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam played an active role when it came to these matters. What we need to understand is that the Prophet of Allah was not only an OB, it was a social activist also.
He stood up for the oppressed of the time, prior to becoming an OB also, when he was a young man, he formed part of a committee known as the healthful food committee, and the spec was thrown up. And they said, Whoever comes from outside of Makkah and he is oppressed, we will stand up for his rights. Likewise, if anybody is oppressed in Makkah, we will stand up for the oppressed person. What is the Prophet of Allah teaching us here? activism, he did not only restrain to Sala and Vicar, he was also actively involved in these initiatives.
He even said that after Islam, had this committee continued, and had this initiative continued, I would have loved to be part of this committee. Even even if somebody offered me red camels. I would ignore that and be part of this committee.
The profit of a loss stood up for the oppressed ones in his community. I'll give you one example.
They came to the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam the women folk and they said, our husbands are oppressing us. He never said makes our
Lord help you inshallah, in the pit in the bud, push it under the carpet, inshallah Allah will help you. He took to the member and he said laqad Otto for the early Mohammed in sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Nisa casinoeuro. schooled as well Johanna are people, your women folk have been coming to my house, and they have been complaining to my wives about the treatment that you are doing, and the treatment that you are given to the human to to to the women folk in the community. We
know and understand. These are not from the noble people of our society.
They say to them,
this is called activism.
He stood up for the oppressed ones. He stood up for the women, he stood up for the vulnerable ones. He stood up for the elderly, he stood up for the children. He stood up for the animals also, he was a social activist, and there is what we need to activate in our lives. They are those people who are activists in our community, we must support them, be part of their initiatives, see how we can play a supportive role and how we can further the cause of the community. And in this regard, there will be other people who will not be from the same walk of life, there will be Jews, Christians, and non Muslims also who will be siding with you in the issue of Palestine. They're not going to come to the
They're not going to come to the masjid.
So, for that there are other platforms for dialogue for discussion. There are other ways of for them uniting on a common cause. And what is the common thread in all this just
And peace for the oppressed ones, the prophet of Allah join forces with the non Muslims at a time of healthful food, you're not going to get get the rosy situation where everything will be 100%, you will have to preserve your demand. And at the same time, work with the product community, and we need to support each other. This is the most important thing. It is said to see that we are gunning down each other's efforts. This can help you wasting your time
wasting your time, that man has caught the zeal, His heart is burning for Palestine, and for the people of Syria and other oppressed people in the world. And we just shoot the men down.
We must join forces, adopt spirituality, and adopt activism and work hand in hand lobby and lobby hard for the Muslims, wherever you are, with whatever influence you have, writing an email, or petitioning a certain person, whatever can help the cause of Palestinians. People saying this intermingling in the match who said go and join the woman and go stand in the middle of them. You can go on the site, you can voice your opinion, you can express the sentiments, some people conveniently get there. And so activism is an important part, especially in our country. You saw the mess turnout in Cape Town, where people came out in the 1000s. How many non Muslims are there? How
many Jews were present in that rally? That not in my name?
Yes, whatever happens, you are responsible for your participation. And if you conveniently go in there and you break in the laws of Allah, that's your responsibility between you and your Creator. But if you go in there with a genuine intention, and you fulfill in the laws at a time of Salah you abandon the march and you perform salla Allahu Akbar, adopt spirituality adopt the five Salas adopt the taqwa what is required at the same time campaign and do whatever is required.
Having said that, brothers, we need to make collective initiatives making draw from the member Palutena Zilla turn into online spirituality. You know sometimes you ask the question that what is my effort to do to this Palestinian struggle? I'm just one individual, what difference is going to make?
The difference is on the day of the AMA, when Allah will open the records of people of lower status men cried for the mothers who lost
this man shed tears this man pledged his financial support for the Palestinians. Remember the Hadith if you cannot go there personally, send money for the lamp of mosquito XL and alone give you the same reward.
Alone See, this man spent his night crying for the home of rasulillah. This man cried for the amount of pseudo law. He pledged his financial support. And he did his bit whatever he could do. for him is a handsome reward. It is a personal relationship between you and Allah subhana wa Tada.
There is what I need to see.
Another important point, I'm going to wrap up shortly also insha Allah, let us not be judgmental of anyone in life.
It's a punishment of Allah. It's an adult from a loss of Hello, Donna. B way, that judgment is only reserved to come Ma. Are you telling me that the Prophet of Allah was pelted for miles on an entire life and the Muslims were tortured in Macau, Villa de la was dragged on miles on end, in the scorching sun, and our motto do low tolerance and his family. His father lost his life. His mother became the first Muslim to become Sinead and a martyr in the path of Islam and the path of Allah. Are you telling me I was punishing him?
Are you telling me the Prophet of Allah was pelted from Belgium and because he was punished,
that judgment is the result of the law.
Nobody has the audacity here to pass judgment to say that this is a punishment from Allah.
You don't know what it takes to be in the Palestinian land. You don't know what it takes to be a Palestinian and to stand up to the forces every day without any army. You don't know what it means to go through a security post every day, day after day and not fleeing the land. And there are those people who have given their lives for the cause of their immediate enough dig a bit dumb or roar. Yeah, fellas pain that we give our life in our soul for your openness time.
How are we to pass judgment on people that is only with on law further to Zaku and full circle, who will be many of us is to not pass judgment, for I am well aware of who is going to walk in life.
Lastly, brothers and sisters in Islam, let us not lose hope.
Let us have faith in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we understand fully that those who passed away in the Palestinian struggle, or in the Syrian struggle, or in the Yemen struggle, or in the struggle in North Africa, those of our brothers and sisters who pass away the gentleman.
Yes, they are living in a disadvantaged situation.
But we also envy them for the status they earn in eyes of law.
for them is high rates agenda for them is the pleasure of law. for them is the sweet values of Jelena that mother that lost her child here. Can you imagine what a reward weighted mother, that Palestinian youngster who lost his mother or father in the struggle, what a beautiful reward awaits him? So la doctrina to me rock metal na, to not lose hope in do not lose hope from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, indeed, the help of allies come in, just as the British imperialist cattlemen came to its knees, just as, as the French colony came to its knees, just as the Dutch colony came to its knees, we are certain, and we have full conviction that the Palestinian struggle
will also succeed and the Israeli regime, the oppressive regime will also come to its knees, but Allah has stipulated a time until then, we continuously support and you make dua, and we pray for them and we perform Salah we give charity on their behalf and we continue to support the struggle.
