So today I'll be talking about Palestine,

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

Uma Adraqima Palestine.

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

I'll be talking about

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

the lasting legacy

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

of our brothers and sisters in Palestine.

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

I'm trying to inshallah to connect the dots

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

between our Dawah legacy in North America

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

and the legacy of our brothers and sisters

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

in Gaza.

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

And when we talk about our lasting legacy,

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

Ekhwan,

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

it is a legacy that will be remembered

00:00:54 --> 00:00:55

forever.

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

We'll be talking about it forever.

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

When people talk about a legacy, they talk

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

about a positive impact

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

that is made in this life,

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

but they don't include something very important

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

which is al akhira,

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

which is jannatil firdaus, because we believe

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

that people will be remembering

00:01:22 --> 00:01:25

or the pious people in our community, our

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

heroes and our leaders,

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

people will be talking about their achievements

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

and their deeds

00:01:32 --> 00:01:33

in Jannatul Firdaus,

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

And we have proofs in the Quran

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

that people remember

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

what they go through in this dunya

00:01:44 --> 00:01:45

in Jannah,

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

in paradise.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:50

They will remember their feelings

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

and their duas and their supplications.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

You may check Surat Atoor

00:01:57 --> 00:01:57

when Allah

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

said,

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

So Allah

00:02:23 --> 00:02:25

is telling us about the people of Jannah

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

that they will approach each other

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

asking about past events

00:02:31 --> 00:02:32

in this dunya,

00:02:34 --> 00:02:35

and they will say,

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

Verily, we were afraid of Allah's punishment in

00:02:45 --> 00:02:46

the middle of our families,

00:02:48 --> 00:02:49

but Allah has

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

been gracious to us,

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

and he saved us from the torment of

00:02:54 --> 00:02:54

fire.

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

We used to invoke him in the past

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

before.

00:03:04 --> 00:03:06

Verily, he is El Bara, the most kind,

00:03:07 --> 00:03:08

the most merciful.

00:03:17 --> 00:03:20

And the hardship that they went through, not

00:03:20 --> 00:03:21

in a negative way,

00:03:22 --> 00:03:24

they will not be sad about it

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

because there is no sadness in Jannah.

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

But they will be happy that Allah subhanahu

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

wa ta'ala relieved them from all types of

00:03:33 --> 00:03:34

grief and sadness.

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

And this is in Surat Fathir.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:39

Waqaluhamdulillahi

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

athhabaanal

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

Hazan

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

And you say they will say all praise

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50

is due to Allah.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

All thanks are due to him

00:03:53 --> 00:03:56

who relieved us from all types of grief

00:03:56 --> 00:03:57

and sorrow.

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

Indeed, our lord is

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

oft forgiving,

00:04:01 --> 00:04:02

most appreciative.

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

So

00:04:05 --> 00:04:07

these are proofs in the Quran from the

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

book of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:04:10 --> 00:04:12

that the people of Jannah will remember their

00:04:12 --> 00:04:13

life,

00:04:15 --> 00:04:16

and our leaders,

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

our heroes,

00:04:19 --> 00:04:20

the reformers

00:04:20 --> 00:04:23

in our communities, the shuyuk, the leaders,

00:04:24 --> 00:04:27

insha'Allah, they will remember their deeds in this

00:04:27 --> 00:04:28

dunya,

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

and they will be proud of their legacy.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

And our heroes of Palestine

00:04:36 --> 00:04:38

will be proud of their lasting

00:04:39 --> 00:04:40

legacy.

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

They will meet Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

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

and they will tell him that we sacrificed

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

everything

00:04:49 --> 00:04:51

for the sake of Baytul Maqdis.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:53

We sacrificed

00:04:53 --> 00:04:54

our homes.

00:04:55 --> 00:04:55

We sacrificed

00:04:56 --> 00:04:57

our children.

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58

We sacrificed

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

our blood

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

for the sake of protecting

00:05:02 --> 00:05:03

Al Masjid Al Aqsa.

00:05:07 --> 00:05:08

And we know

00:05:09 --> 00:05:11

that the 35,000,

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

generally speaking,

00:05:14 --> 00:05:15

you cannot talk about individuals,

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

but generally speaking,

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

those children and women

00:05:20 --> 00:05:23

who passed away, who lost their lives,

00:05:24 --> 00:05:25

we hope that they are shuhada.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

And I'm sure that we have some Palestinians

00:05:29 --> 00:05:30

with us today

00:05:31 --> 00:05:34

who have lost family members in Gaza,

00:05:35 --> 00:05:37

and I would like to share some good

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

news with them.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

We have in the community

00:05:42 --> 00:05:44

people who lost 30, 40,

00:05:45 --> 00:05:47

and to me that was a big number

00:05:47 --> 00:05:48

to lose.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

When I met brother Khalid

00:05:52 --> 00:05:53

last

00:05:53 --> 00:05:55

Wednesday, we had a rally here in front

00:05:55 --> 00:05:56

of the city hall,

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

and he told me that he knows a

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

couple. They are related together. They are in

00:06:02 --> 00:06:04

the city of Calgary. I don't know their

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

names,

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

but he said they are a couple from

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

the same family.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:12

Till the end of Ramadan, they lost 160

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

family members.

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

It's something that is beyond our imagination,

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

how people are

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

handling

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

this situation.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

But I wanna give them the good news.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

2 famous ahadith from the sunnah of our

00:06:30 --> 00:06:32

prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

00:06:34 --> 00:06:35

The first hadith

00:06:36 --> 00:06:39

is agreed upon in Bukhari and Muslim, hadith

00:06:39 --> 00:06:40

Anas ibn Malik

00:06:40 --> 00:06:41

radiAllahu

00:06:41 --> 00:06:42

anhu.

00:06:42 --> 00:06:43

And this is a bushra

00:06:44 --> 00:06:47

for those, as I said, who lost their

00:06:47 --> 00:06:48

loved ones, and a bushra for those who

00:06:48 --> 00:06:50

received the shahada.

00:06:50 --> 00:06:52

It is a shahada fisabilillah.

00:06:53 --> 00:06:57

So Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, maamin ahadin.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:01

Rakizma ahadal hadith, maamin ahadin yadhululjannah.

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

So in this hadith, Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa

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

sallam said that is in Bukhary and Muslim,

00:08:01 --> 00:08:04

he said no one will enter Jannah.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:07

No one will enter Jannah and will have

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

a desire

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

to return to this dunya.

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

Even if

00:08:13 --> 00:08:14

even if

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

the whole world

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

is given to him, even if he is

00:08:19 --> 00:08:21

told that you will be the owner of

00:08:21 --> 00:08:24

every type of wealth on this earth,

00:08:24 --> 00:08:26

you become the owner of this earth.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

He said, no one. He will say, no,

00:08:30 --> 00:08:33

thank you, I don't want to go back.

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

But he said, except the shahid,

00:08:37 --> 00:08:39

the person who was granted shahada,

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

he will wish to come back to this

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

duniya

00:08:43 --> 00:08:46

to receive shahada 10 times more

00:08:47 --> 00:08:49

on account of the dignity that he receives

00:08:50 --> 00:08:51

by virtue of his martyrdom.

00:08:53 --> 00:08:55

By virtue of his martyrdom.

00:08:58 --> 00:09:01

The our brothers and sisters in Palestine, they

00:09:01 --> 00:09:03

will also be proud of their Ribaat on

00:09:03 --> 00:09:04

the day of judgment.

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

Ribaat, Yahuen, is in Arabic world and rebaat

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

their rebaat is the is the best type

00:09:11 --> 00:09:12

of rebaat.

00:09:13 --> 00:09:14

Ribaat is

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

to live in the frontier

00:09:18 --> 00:09:21

with the purpose of defending the Muslim

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

lands,

00:09:23 --> 00:09:25

defending Muslim communities.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:28

And we have this beautiful hadith,

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

and I want you to pay attention again

00:09:30 --> 00:09:32

to this to the beauty and the power

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

of this hadith.

00:10:20 --> 00:10:23

He said to stay watch for 1 hour,

00:10:24 --> 00:10:26

to stay watch. This is rebal,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

to live on front in the frontier,

00:10:29 --> 00:10:32

to protect the Muslim lands, protect Muslim communities.

00:10:32 --> 00:10:35

He said to stay watch for 1 hour

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

for 1 hour

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

in the way of Allah Allah

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

is better than praying

00:10:44 --> 00:10:46

near the black stone.

00:10:48 --> 00:10:51

Qatar. And this hadith again is authentic

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

and it is in Sahih ibn Hibban

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

al Bayhafi as I said in Sahih al

00:10:56 --> 00:10:57

Jameh.

00:10:57 --> 00:10:59

So our brothers and sisters, many of our

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

brothers and sisters in Palestine

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

are aware of this divine text.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:06

They know that very well.

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

And also they are aware of the status

00:11:10 --> 00:11:13

of their land from an Islamic perspective,

00:11:13 --> 00:11:16

the value, the excellence of their land.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:18

We know that

00:11:19 --> 00:11:21

when we say Palestine is a matter of

00:11:21 --> 00:11:23

faith, what do we mean by that?

00:11:23 --> 00:11:26

It was the first kabbalah for Muslims.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:30

We know that when Muslims moved moved to

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

the city of Medina,

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

they

00:11:33 --> 00:11:36

were praying facing Bayt Al Maqdis for 16

00:11:36 --> 00:11:37

or 17 months.

00:11:39 --> 00:11:42

And we wonder why, why would Allah

00:11:44 --> 00:11:45

make them to face

00:11:46 --> 00:11:49

Bayt Al Maqdis for this period of time

00:11:51 --> 00:11:52

when he knows

00:11:54 --> 00:11:55

we know definitely he knows

00:11:56 --> 00:11:58

that Al Kaaba will be their main and

00:11:58 --> 00:11:59

only qibla.

00:12:00 --> 00:12:02

And one of the hikam, it could be

00:12:02 --> 00:12:03

Allahu ta'alaalam,

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

that that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala wanted Muslims

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

to always

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

maintain

00:12:11 --> 00:12:14

strong ties between the 3 Masajid.

00:12:14 --> 00:12:17

Al Masjid Al Haram in Makkah, Al Masjid

00:12:17 --> 00:12:18

Al Nabawi in Madinah,

00:12:19 --> 00:12:21

and then Masjid Al Aqsa

00:12:21 --> 00:12:23

in Jerusalem in Bayt Al Maqdis.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:27

It's like the message is like like

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

all Muslims

00:12:29 --> 00:12:30

all Muslims

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

never forget

00:12:33 --> 00:12:36

that Bayt al Maqdis was your first Iblah.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

Are you going to forget?

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

No.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

So the Muslims never forget that

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

Baytul Maqdis was your first qibla.

00:12:49 --> 00:12:50

The second thing,

00:12:51 --> 00:12:53

the night journey, think about the night journey.

00:12:55 --> 00:12:56

Allah

00:12:57 --> 00:12:58

subhanahu

00:12:58 --> 00:12:59

wa ta'ala

00:12:59 --> 00:13:01

could have taken his messenger, sallallahu

00:13:02 --> 00:13:03

alaihi wa sallam,

00:13:03 --> 00:13:04

from Makkah

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

directly to the heavens, to the 7 heavens.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:10

And by the way by the way, when

00:13:10 --> 00:13:11

it comes to the night journey

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

that the messenger of Allah went to the

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

7 heavens, some people ask how can a

00:13:15 --> 00:13:17

human being does that.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

And we're not the the answer is very

00:13:19 --> 00:13:20

simple.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:22

We're not talking about the power of a

00:13:22 --> 00:13:24

human being. We're talking about the power of

00:13:24 --> 00:13:27

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala who created this universe.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:30

This is for those who ask this question

00:13:30 --> 00:13:32

whether they are Muslims or non Muslims.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:35

We're talking about the power of Allah subhanahu

00:13:35 --> 00:13:38

wa ta'ala who created this universe with its

00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

galaxies and planets

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

and stars.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

He's the one who created this beauty and

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

this power in this universe. It's easy for

00:13:46 --> 00:13:48

him to take his servant from Makkah

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

to the 7 heavens and bring him back,

00:13:52 --> 00:13:53

you know, in one night.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:57

It's very difficult for many people to understand

00:13:57 --> 00:14:00

this, but this is our answer. We're not

00:14:00 --> 00:14:02

talking about the power of a human being,

00:14:02 --> 00:14:04

We're talking about the power of Allah subhanahu

00:14:04 --> 00:14:05

wa ta'ala.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

But what happened during that journey,

00:14:09 --> 00:14:10

as I said, it was possible

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

to take him from Makkah to the 7

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

heavens directly, but Allah wanted him to go

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

through Jerusalem.

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

And here,

00:14:19 --> 00:14:21

he met prophets and messengers of the past.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:26

Regardless of in I mean, how how come

00:14:26 --> 00:14:29

they were there, they were by their physical

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

bodies.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:31

I mean, our Allah

00:14:33 --> 00:14:35

just brought them brought their shapes in front

00:14:35 --> 00:14:36

of him, Allahu

00:14:37 --> 00:14:39

Alem. But we know in the ahadith, in

00:14:39 --> 00:14:42

the authentic ahadith that he met with the

00:14:42 --> 00:14:43

prophets and messengers,

00:14:44 --> 00:14:45

and he was a leader.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

There was a congregation. There was a prayer.

00:14:49 --> 00:14:50

They prayed together,

00:14:51 --> 00:14:53

and he was the imam. Our prophet Muhammad

00:14:53 --> 00:14:55

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was the imam. The

00:14:55 --> 00:14:55

congregation

00:14:56 --> 00:14:58

included Ibrahim alaihi salam, is Sahih Muslim,

00:14:59 --> 00:15:02

Aesah alaihi salam, in English Jesus,

00:15:02 --> 00:15:04

Musa alaihi salam, in English Moses.

00:15:04 --> 00:15:07

These are great prophets and messengers from the

00:15:07 --> 00:15:09

children of the community of Banu Israel.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

And this is very significant.

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

Why? There is something that we don't talk

00:15:17 --> 00:15:19

about it a lot.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:21

There is a clear

00:15:21 --> 00:15:24

transfer of leadership during that night.

00:15:25 --> 00:15:26

Benoit Israel

00:15:27 --> 00:15:30

were the religious leaders for almost 2000

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

years from the time of Yaqub, in English,

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34

Jacob.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:38

Yaqub alaihi sallam till our prophet Muhammad salallahu

00:15:38 --> 00:15:40

alaihi wasallam was sent

00:15:40 --> 00:15:42

as a messenger for almost 2,000.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:46

They were religious the religious leaders. They had

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

their victories.

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

They had their failures.

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

They had their achievement.

00:15:51 --> 00:15:51

They were able

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

to establish a kingdom during the time of

00:15:54 --> 00:15:57

Dawud alaihi salam, David in English, time of

00:15:57 --> 00:15:59

Suleiman in English, Solomon.

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

They were able to they had their own

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

achievements. On the other side, some of them

00:16:04 --> 00:16:07

have killed prophets and messengers. This is well

00:16:07 --> 00:16:09

documented in the Quran.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

Their community was not able to preserve

00:16:15 --> 00:16:17

the old scriptures,

00:16:18 --> 00:16:20

the Torah that was given to Musa alaihi

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

salam, and the bible that was given to

00:16:22 --> 00:16:24

Isa alaihi salam.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:26

So they had their own victories and their

00:16:26 --> 00:16:27

own,

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

you know, failures

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

until

00:16:30 --> 00:16:33

our prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi was was sent

00:16:33 --> 00:16:35

as a messenger of Allah,

00:16:35 --> 00:16:37

and it was time

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

for the new Muslim, Umma, to carry the

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

message

00:16:41 --> 00:16:43

or to carry the torch as they say

00:16:43 --> 00:16:44

it sometimes.

00:16:46 --> 00:16:47

It was a clear,

00:16:48 --> 00:16:49

as I said, transfer

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

of

00:16:51 --> 00:16:52

of leadership.

00:16:54 --> 00:16:57

Now our brothers and sisters also in Palestine,

00:16:57 --> 00:16:57

they know

00:16:58 --> 00:17:01

the value of praying in Masjid Al Aqsa.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

They are aware they're fully aware of the

00:17:04 --> 00:17:07

multiplication of rewards of praying in Al Masjid

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

Al Aqsa.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:12

Every prayer there, every 5 daily prayer counts

00:17:12 --> 00:17:15

for 250 or 500 prayers. It depends on

00:17:15 --> 00:17:16

which opinion you follow.

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

That but the multiplication

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

is there.

00:17:20 --> 00:17:22

So all these

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

divine texts,

00:17:24 --> 00:17:25

all these

00:17:26 --> 00:17:28

beautiful stories of prophets and messengers

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

shaped

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

they have shaped

00:17:32 --> 00:17:34

the the, you know, they they call it

00:17:34 --> 00:17:35

the collective,

00:17:36 --> 00:17:37

the collective consciousness

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

of the Palestinian people.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:42

This noble

00:17:42 --> 00:17:43

heritage,

00:17:45 --> 00:17:45

you know,

00:17:46 --> 00:17:49

made some or created some sort of unifying

00:17:49 --> 00:17:50

force

00:17:50 --> 00:17:52

within their circles

00:17:53 --> 00:17:54

After the help of Allah

00:17:55 --> 00:17:56

and his assistance,

00:17:57 --> 00:18:00

this beautiful concept, this beautiful principles

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

are

00:18:02 --> 00:18:04

the the source of their resilience,

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

their bravery, their courage,

00:18:07 --> 00:18:10

and also they became these things became part

00:18:10 --> 00:18:11

of their identity.

00:18:14 --> 00:18:16

And that's why we see this, you know,

00:18:16 --> 00:18:17

these beautiful achievements

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

in the land of Gaza. Yes, there is

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

destruction,

00:18:21 --> 00:18:22

there is pain,

00:18:23 --> 00:18:25

you know, everyone knows, everyone is following the

00:18:25 --> 00:18:27

news and we know what's going on,

00:18:28 --> 00:18:29

But the people were

00:18:30 --> 00:18:33

are showing the highest level the highest level

00:18:33 --> 00:18:36

of resilience in Sabar. The world will never

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

forget

00:18:37 --> 00:18:38

their commitment

00:18:39 --> 00:18:40

and their resilience,

00:18:41 --> 00:18:42

their courage,

00:18:42 --> 00:18:45

and Muslims will never forget their

00:18:46 --> 00:18:48

their love for salah, their love for Quran,

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

their submission to the will of Allah subhanahu

00:18:51 --> 00:18:52

wa ta'ala.

00:18:52 --> 00:18:54

It's a dynamic story

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

of of pain,

00:18:57 --> 00:18:58

of heartache,

00:18:59 --> 00:19:00

and also determination

00:19:01 --> 00:19:01

and resilience

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

and courage.

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

You see this, you know, that what has

00:19:06 --> 00:19:08

been shared there so

00:19:08 --> 00:19:11

far is amazing, maybe you're not able to

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

watch every video, but if you watch some

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

of them,

00:19:14 --> 00:19:15

you'll be amazed

00:19:16 --> 00:19:18

about the resilience of these people.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:20

You see this uncle

00:19:20 --> 00:19:22

who was under the rubbles for the whole

00:19:22 --> 00:19:23

night,

00:19:24 --> 00:19:25

an elderly person,

00:19:26 --> 00:19:28

under the rubbles for the during the whole

00:19:28 --> 00:19:30

night when people came

00:19:31 --> 00:19:34

at Fajr time at dawn to rescue him,

00:19:34 --> 00:19:36

they found him that he was they found

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

that he was praying salat al Fajr under

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

the

00:19:39 --> 00:19:40

and they had to wait for him to

00:19:40 --> 00:19:41

finish his salah,

00:19:42 --> 00:19:44

and then they started communicating

00:19:44 --> 00:19:45

with him.

00:19:46 --> 00:19:48

You see this young girl who is only

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49

10 and 11,

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

and there's the rebels.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:54

And when people came to rescue her and

00:19:54 --> 00:19:57

they started talking to her, communicating with her,

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

she said, don't worry about me.

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

Start with my mom and little brother.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:05

Don't worry about me.

00:20:06 --> 00:20:09

And when she came out, she was not

00:20:09 --> 00:20:09

crying.

00:20:10 --> 00:20:11

She was not shaking.

00:20:12 --> 00:20:14

And you feel like you guess that these

00:20:14 --> 00:20:17

people are giant of resilience and sabrekhwan,

00:20:18 --> 00:20:19

and they are raising

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

they are raising

00:20:21 --> 00:20:22

their children

00:20:23 --> 00:20:24

to be the same.

00:20:26 --> 00:20:28

And like Sheikh Ali said in the first

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

previous

00:20:30 --> 00:20:33

in the previous lecture, he said, youth,

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

you are the products of your environment,

00:20:37 --> 00:20:40

and these children of Gaza are the product

00:20:40 --> 00:20:41

of their environment.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:44

There are people who love the Quran,

00:20:44 --> 00:20:45

and they love the deen,

00:20:46 --> 00:20:48

and they understand their duties,

00:20:48 --> 00:20:51

and they understand they really understand their position

00:20:52 --> 00:20:53

and their responsibility

00:20:54 --> 00:20:54

about

00:20:55 --> 00:20:56

Al Masjid Al Aqsa and the future of

00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

this Umma. They are defending

00:20:58 --> 00:21:00

defending the whole Umma.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:04

Gaza is changing the course of history.

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

Ghazah is breaking the algorithm.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:11

The truth is out there,

00:21:11 --> 00:21:13

and it is making a difference.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:15

Last Saturday,

00:21:15 --> 00:21:17

I received I met a sister, she came

00:21:17 --> 00:21:19

to my office.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:22

And by the way, she came with another

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

sister from Gaza.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

And the sister, she said,

00:21:27 --> 00:21:30

Gaza has completely changed my life.

00:21:32 --> 00:21:34

I have accepted Islam yesterday.

00:21:35 --> 00:21:36

So she accepted

00:21:36 --> 00:21:38

Islam on Friday, and she came to my

00:21:38 --> 00:21:39

office on Saturday.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:43

She said, Gaza has completely changed my life.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:46

She was wearing hijab.

00:21:46 --> 00:21:49

That was her 2nd day of reversion

00:21:49 --> 00:21:51

and winning a Palestinian Kufiyya.

00:21:54 --> 00:21:57

And I had discussion about, you know, with

00:21:57 --> 00:21:59

her about Islam and salat and everything,

00:22:01 --> 00:22:03

and on the same day I called brother

00:22:03 --> 00:22:04

Omar,

00:22:05 --> 00:22:08

who is in charge. Omar, I mean Zada.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:09

He could be here with us.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:14

I called him about adding this sister, new

00:22:14 --> 00:22:15

revert sister,

00:22:15 --> 00:22:18

to the the the revert sister, the the

00:22:18 --> 00:22:20

WhatsApp group of the revert sisters.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:24

And he said, I have added today 4

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

sisters.

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

Wallahi,

00:22:27 --> 00:22:28

4 sisters in one day.

00:22:29 --> 00:22:31

And I was amazed. I was shocked.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:34

This is way different than what happened in

00:22:34 --> 00:22:36

September 11.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:39

We have made a big progress.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:41

I don't want you to be

00:22:41 --> 00:22:44

to be sad about what's happening. What's happening,

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

wallahi?

00:22:45 --> 00:22:48

Allah knows that it is good for this.

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

The struggle of Gaza has awakened the world.

00:22:53 --> 00:22:56

The struggle of Gaza has awakened many Muslims.

00:22:57 --> 00:22:59

They are paying to the pay attention to

00:22:59 --> 00:23:00

their deen

00:23:01 --> 00:23:02

and to the power

00:23:03 --> 00:23:05

the and and the strength of their iman

00:23:05 --> 00:23:06

and their faith,

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

and they are coming back to Allah subhanahu

00:23:09 --> 00:23:10

wa ta'ala.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:14

And the struggle of Gaza also has exposed

00:23:14 --> 00:23:15

the hypocrisy

00:23:16 --> 00:23:17

within what is called

00:23:18 --> 00:23:18

the international

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

community.

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

You know, I promised all our leaders in

00:23:25 --> 00:23:26

the Western world,

00:23:27 --> 00:23:29

and also our leaders in the Arab and

00:23:29 --> 00:23:30

the Muslim world,

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

I promise

00:23:34 --> 00:23:37

those who have shown a display

00:23:37 --> 00:23:38

disgraceful

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

display

00:23:39 --> 00:23:41

of hypocrisy and double standard

00:23:42 --> 00:23:44

that you will never be proud of your

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

of your of your fake

00:23:46 --> 00:23:47

legacy.

00:23:48 --> 00:23:49

You will never be proud

00:23:50 --> 00:23:52

of the decisions that you made about Gaza.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

And if you are if you are a

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

human being and you have you still have

00:23:57 --> 00:23:59

some goodness in your heart when you leave

00:23:59 --> 00:24:01

office, we know it will happen to you.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:03

You will regret that the decisions that you

00:24:03 --> 00:24:04

made

00:24:05 --> 00:24:07

about Gaza. We see the bias.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:10

We see lies. We see manipulations.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:12

We see false news

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

shared about what happened on October 7th,

00:24:17 --> 00:24:19

and then when the news when they discover

00:24:19 --> 00:24:22

that it was false news, for example, the

00:24:22 --> 00:24:23

killing of 40 babies,

00:24:24 --> 00:24:25

these

00:24:25 --> 00:24:29

mainstream media outlets, they don't show they don't

00:24:29 --> 00:24:31

they don't utter an apology.

00:24:32 --> 00:24:35

One single apology, we don't hear it from

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

them

00:24:36 --> 00:24:38

that it was fake news

00:24:39 --> 00:24:42

that the Palestinians did not kill 40 babies,

00:24:44 --> 00:24:46

and there are many, many news who are

00:24:46 --> 00:24:48

not allowed to follow everything.

00:24:48 --> 00:24:51

Right? It's very difficult to, you know, to

00:24:51 --> 00:24:54

understand and to and to follow every single

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

event. It's not it's not possible these days.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:58

Otherwise, you will lose your job

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

and you will

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

even you neglect your family, neglect your your

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

duties.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:06

But anyway,

00:25:06 --> 00:25:09

miss Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and waftikhanahu alikhaer.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:11

I would like

00:25:12 --> 00:25:15

to end, you know, my lecture with 2

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

suggestions.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18

I'm just throwing ideas here.

00:25:20 --> 00:25:22

When it comes to boycotting

00:25:22 --> 00:25:23

Israeli products

00:25:24 --> 00:25:25

and boycotting,

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

you know,

00:25:28 --> 00:25:29

companies

00:25:30 --> 00:25:31

which deal with

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

with the Zionist states.

00:25:34 --> 00:25:37

I would like to share an idea here.

00:25:37 --> 00:25:39

I think that we are not organized,

00:25:39 --> 00:25:41

and the reason I'm sharing this idea,

00:25:42 --> 00:25:43

if we have some activists

00:25:43 --> 00:25:46

within us, within our circles today,

00:25:46 --> 00:25:48

if we have people who are interested to

00:25:49 --> 00:25:50

work on this subject.

00:25:50 --> 00:25:52

We need to be organized. We need to

00:25:52 --> 00:25:53

have a body.

00:25:54 --> 00:25:55

We need to have an organization

00:25:55 --> 00:25:58

which takes care of this issue.

00:25:59 --> 00:26:00

And in the last

00:26:01 --> 00:26:02

6 months,

00:26:02 --> 00:26:04

we heard that some people did the research,

00:26:04 --> 00:26:07

Matt and for example, about major banks in

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

in Canada.

00:26:08 --> 00:26:10

And I'm not going to mention names, but

00:26:10 --> 00:26:12

he said these 4 are heavily involved

00:26:13 --> 00:26:14

with, you know,

00:26:14 --> 00:26:15

supporting

00:26:15 --> 00:26:16

Israel.

00:26:17 --> 00:26:18

They are investing

00:26:19 --> 00:26:20

in the manufacturing

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

of weapons and doing this and donating, and

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

and we have these 2 who they are

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

okay. These 2 banks, they are okay.

00:26:28 --> 00:26:30

We can do banking with them or we

00:26:30 --> 00:26:33

should, you know, switch our bank accounts

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

to these 2

00:26:34 --> 00:26:37

banks. This is the research. Oh, he said

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

it was a research done by some people.

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

And I was talking to a brother from

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

Gaza

00:26:43 --> 00:26:45

who works in one of these 4

00:26:46 --> 00:26:48

so called guilty banks,

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

and he assured me he assured to me

00:26:52 --> 00:26:53

that,

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

you know, my our bank, he's an insider.

00:26:56 --> 00:26:58

He works in the department

00:26:58 --> 00:27:00

that's supposed to do deal with Sharia compliant

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

investment.

00:27:02 --> 00:27:04

He said, I can assure you

00:27:04 --> 00:27:06

that my our bank donated

00:27:06 --> 00:27:08

both to the Palestinians

00:27:09 --> 00:27:11

and to support also the Israeli civilians.

00:27:12 --> 00:27:14

As I said, I'm not going to mention

00:27:14 --> 00:27:16

a name because I don't want to advertise

00:27:16 --> 00:27:17

to any bank,

00:27:17 --> 00:27:19

but the idea that I got, and I

00:27:19 --> 00:27:21

received today a letter from a senior

00:27:22 --> 00:27:23

officer in this bank,

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

The idea that I want I want to

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

share

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

that everyone,

00:27:29 --> 00:27:30

we are lost.

00:27:30 --> 00:27:31

We are everywhere.

00:27:32 --> 00:27:34

We're trying to get information from this organization,

00:27:34 --> 00:27:35

from this organization,

00:27:36 --> 00:27:37

and we don't know what to do with

00:27:37 --> 00:27:38

many,

00:27:39 --> 00:27:41

many companies and many businesses.

00:27:42 --> 00:27:43

The idea of boycotting

00:27:44 --> 00:27:46

is making actually is

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

very effective in Malaysia,

00:27:48 --> 00:27:50

in some countries in the Middle East.

00:27:51 --> 00:27:53

Some companies are losing 1,000,000,000 of dollars.

00:27:54 --> 00:27:56

I'm not sure if they are changing their

00:27:56 --> 00:27:58

position, that's a different story. But my point

00:27:58 --> 00:27:59

is

00:27:59 --> 00:28:02

the reason I'm sharing again this idea

00:28:02 --> 00:28:04

in case we have some, as I said,

00:28:04 --> 00:28:05

activists,

00:28:05 --> 00:28:07

some people who want to share these ideas

00:28:07 --> 00:28:08

with other shuyuk,

00:28:09 --> 00:28:11

with other leaders in our community, you might

00:28:11 --> 00:28:13

have a connection with other ulama in North

00:28:13 --> 00:28:14

America

00:28:15 --> 00:28:17

or overseas, and we talk about this, we

00:28:17 --> 00:28:19

need to have a body, we need to

00:28:19 --> 00:28:20

have an organization.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:22

It doesn't have to be based here in

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

Canada or North America, could be in Malaysia,

00:28:25 --> 00:28:26

could be in

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

in,

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

in Turkey, for example.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:32

And then we we need to have the

00:28:32 --> 00:28:33

scholars who will come together

00:28:34 --> 00:28:37

and issue fatawas about, you know, these etiquettes

00:28:38 --> 00:28:41

of boycotting these products, boycotting these companies and

00:28:41 --> 00:28:42

these businesses,

00:28:42 --> 00:28:44

and also what are the businesses that we

00:28:44 --> 00:28:46

can boycott and are not,

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

and those who we cannot.

00:28:48 --> 00:28:50

So something that we need to do,

00:28:51 --> 00:28:52

we need to do about it. I remember

00:28:52 --> 00:28:53

in 2001,

00:28:54 --> 00:28:55

I shared an idea in the south was

00:28:55 --> 00:28:58

measured about the importance of making dawah.

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

We didn't have I s e at that

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

time. We didn't have I s e. And

00:29:02 --> 00:29:04

so people have said, okay, you aren't you're

00:29:04 --> 00:29:07

talking about dawah, let's go

00:29:07 --> 00:29:09

to the Glenmore Park and invite some non

00:29:09 --> 00:29:12

Muslims and share some, you know, dua with

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

them.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:15

Talk to them about Islam.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:17

And we met. I remember we met with

00:29:17 --> 00:29:19

some brothers in Glenmore

00:29:19 --> 00:29:21

Park, and then within a few weeks we

00:29:21 --> 00:29:24

came up with the idea of establishing ISC.

00:29:24 --> 00:29:27

In 2001. We started our Dawah activity

00:29:27 --> 00:29:28

in 2002.

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

Alhamdulillah.

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

I shared an idea on the member

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

and you see the results, the outcomes of

00:29:36 --> 00:29:38

this idea. So I'm sharing this idea with

00:29:38 --> 00:29:40

you now in case, as I said, you

00:29:40 --> 00:29:43

have connections with activists, with Rulama, with Shuyuk,

00:29:43 --> 00:29:45

you can share this idea. We really need

00:29:45 --> 00:29:46

to organize ourselves

00:29:47 --> 00:29:50

when it comes to boycotting the Zionist state.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:52

2nd idea,

00:29:53 --> 00:29:54

that we

00:29:54 --> 00:29:55

are lacking

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

rulings regarding

00:29:58 --> 00:30:01

working with other people in rallies

00:30:01 --> 00:30:03

and the area of activism,

00:30:03 --> 00:30:06

when these people have an agenda that is

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07

not accepted in our deen.

00:30:08 --> 00:30:10

They have we know that they have an

00:30:10 --> 00:30:11

agenda,

00:30:11 --> 00:30:13

and they're working with their agenda, and their

00:30:13 --> 00:30:15

agenda is not halal.

00:30:17 --> 00:30:19

What are we supposed to do? Our youth

00:30:19 --> 00:30:20

are confused.

00:30:20 --> 00:30:22

Some of Ulema and Maheika tell them it's

00:30:22 --> 00:30:25

haram to participate in these rallies. Some of

00:30:25 --> 00:30:27

them are saying no, they came here, they

00:30:27 --> 00:30:29

are supporting us, they are supporting our cause,

00:30:29 --> 00:30:31

then we should work together.

00:30:31 --> 00:30:33

I feel like the community is lost when

00:30:33 --> 00:30:34

it comes to this area.

00:30:35 --> 00:30:37

And I don't have a clear answer why

00:30:37 --> 00:30:39

because I don't want to I don't believe

00:30:39 --> 00:30:42

in individual fatawas when it comes to this

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

kind of,

00:30:43 --> 00:30:45

you know, difficult matters.

00:30:46 --> 00:30:48

I like to see a collective fatwa,

00:30:49 --> 00:30:51

a work of a team. I know some

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

scholars are meeting in Malaysia this summer, they're

00:30:53 --> 00:30:56

meeting in Turkey, they're meeting in Europe, huge

00:30:56 --> 00:30:59

conferences taking place. As I said, if if

00:30:59 --> 00:31:01

it happens that you participate in one of

00:31:01 --> 00:31:01

these conferences,

00:31:02 --> 00:31:04

maybe we can talk about these issues insha'Allah

00:31:05 --> 00:31:06

and find a solution

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

for them. That's Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And

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

you will fit an alikulkhair. That's Allah Subhanahu

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

Wa Ta'ala. And you will fit an alikulkhair.

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

That's Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And you will

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

fit an alikulkhair. That's Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

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

And you will fit an alikulkhair. That's Allah

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

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And you will fit an

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

alikulkhair. That's Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And you

00:31:09 --> 00:31:10

will fit an alikulkhair.
