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

You all know it's how you all remember six weeks ago when I was here life was beautiful. We have a lot of plans, right? And everything was going the way we want and look the difference in less than six weeks. And Allah knows what we are going to be facing in the coming days, weeks, months. We don't know.

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

This couple of things I want to share with you and may Allah reward the Imam. Those of you who know Arabi and know the Quran here are exactly what we need to hear today. May Allah reward him. I don't think I'm seeing him. He read for us in the first Rocha.

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

The verse in Surah Al Baqarah. And then the second Roca, he read the last page of Surah two Brahim and absolutely goes with the title of today. In general,

00:01:16 --> 00:01:27

whenever we go through difficulty, not necessarily what is happening in Gaza only any difficulty in life. Real one real challenge when it takes a long time.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:40

And we don't see in our human perception that there is a way out. What usually happens majority of the time in La Mer Hammarby. We lose hope.

00:01:41 --> 00:01:46

Now let me show me hands. The camera is on me. So it's not going to show you.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:59

How many of you today have felt there is no way out. It's been two weeks, things are moving from worse. To even more worse. How many of you show me hands.

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

There is a reason why this topic was changed. This was not the topic. You all know. They changed the flyer this morning. So don't be shy. Feeding. In fact, we have a program tomorrow in my Masjid in California is about helplessness and hopelessness.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:37

It is not unusual that the I'm going to share with you a couple of things. What we all are feeling and I am number one is absolutely normal. And don't look at your son sir. How dare I feel this way? Am I not a Muslim? Am I not a moment? Yes, we are. But we're human beings.

00:02:39 --> 00:02:47

And especially living far away. Especially with all the atmosphere around us. We're feeling we're alone.

00:02:48 --> 00:03:13

We're already a minority and now we're feeling even more minority. That's 1am I correct. Second, with this may come to some of us. The question that shaytaan is going to put in you and me, aren't we the believers? Aren't we the Muslims? Aren't we the servants of Allah? Where is the victory of Allah? True or False?

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

Yes or no? I want to hear it.

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

Only the sisters

00:03:21 --> 00:03:29

all of us comes and goes. Again natural. It's happened with the Sahaba with the rasool Allah He salatu Sena.

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

Why he answered them.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

Will Akina contested you don't.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

You're rushing?

00:03:40 --> 00:04:04

Human being, we want things quickly. Not necessarily because we're living in this day and age in general, as a jeweler or candle inside or a jeweler, human beings want things very quick, sober, being patient is extremely difficult, true or false? That's what the Imamura didn't the first Rocha. Yeah, you have livina administer Aino Bisabolol your Salah

00:04:05 --> 00:04:12

in Allaha, mas arbery seek help, meaning I need help.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:34

Think of it this way. Why did Allah tells me stain over slavery or Salah then he's going to talk about martyrs. Meaning I need that is not going to be easy. Be patient and patient alone is not easy, and it's not easy to be done. But what helps is Salah.

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

So with that, I'm going to comment and I'm going to give you take home messages. Stat II know Meaning seek help, meaning I need help, meaning I can do it alone. Meaning I'm weak so all these are fine. Are you all with me? These feelings are expected that's what Allah is telling me indirectly seek help. When do you seek help? When you think you can do it alone

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

When you think you don't have enough strength Alhamdulillah that's who I am. And you are fine. But what do I do you outlaw don't give up.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:33

Never, ever give up. In any trial you go through, let alone the one we are going through things. This is one of the toughest. How many of you were here in September 11? After September 11. Show me hands. Not many of you. We thought it was bad. I was there actually. I was doing my residency. No, this is much worse.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:36

The atmosphere we're living in,

00:05:37 --> 00:05:55

but expected steht enormous Sabri was sada. I'm going to write a prescription. I'm a physician, as you all know, you're gonna write a prescription for you. Number one called Saba Be patient. We'll come to it later if time allows. Now slider.

00:05:56 --> 00:06:03

This is really important. This is not the time that I am going to do my two second slider.

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

This is not the time I am going to do my salah when I have time. This is not the time I was so happy when I saw this was beautiful. Actually all the massage it last Friday our program in California in icoi. There was not a space to put a needle not a person Alhamdulillah sada

Asada Sana Sana on time in the masjid Jamar Fajr. Aisha and the DUA and the DUA that's what Allah say stain all this Sabri was cider. You are practicing Subhan Allah has with you. That's what he's saying. In Allahu wa Sabeti whenever I am feeling better, and we all are, I mean, the images we are seeing, this is the main difference between now and September 11. Because we are seeing reality, the images are coming. I mean, I'm sure you all are seeing it.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:13

And this when I need somebody I say to Allah, Ya Allah, this is very difficult, but you're gonna make me sober. You're gonna make me patient because I know. You're seeing it.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:35

You're seeing it. You're hearing it. You're allowing it. Nothing happens in this world without the permission of Allah. wa salam and nama Asaba ComiCon in New York. The famous hadith of rasool Allah Surah, two, Sarah, what has befallen you would never miss you.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:59

Then I look at the images that we all are seeing whether on the local or on the international weather on the reality and the lack of weather of the justice and the injustice. You all know this. I am going to say you're upbeat, I am seeing it. And I am the sinner and I'm feeling this way. What is Allah saying?

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

We're Muslims, everything has to be connected with Allah Subhan Tada. Allah is Eileen. Yes or no Allah all knowing Yes or No. Allah is Semia all hearing yes or no. And Allah has her kin.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:32

Allah is always there is Heckman, this many of you will say where is it? What Hekima in children dying. You all are seeing the images, it melts your heart.

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

You still Allah has hacking.

00:08:36 --> 00:09:11

Because when the people were killed in, in Ohio, Allah was hacking and still is hacking. And when the people were killed and martyred, so you know Hamza and was his body was mutilated Allah Hakeem. And Allah has Rahim and this is Hamza. This is not me and you so you come with this. These are the things you're going to take it with you always get connected with Allah subhanaw taala you're not be there is Heckman? You're a B there is wisdom. I am not seeing it. Show me and keep me steadfast. Second is what he wrote.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:19

What are totally my new alter Luffy sebelah hit that bell here. When I can let her shoulder

00:09:20 --> 00:09:27

those who died. Number one before I comment on this, how many of you in this room Shomi hands we all gonna die

00:09:30 --> 00:09:44

coluna I've seen that you've gotten Mote every single soul will taste death. Not my words. Or last one oh Tada. He said it two times in the Quran. Three times actually.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:48

Now, how I will die

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

literally reflect how I was living.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

So those people who died as martyrs and we all believed in this and that's exactly what I just

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

Right, and the Imamura to you, don't you think? Those who died who were killed for the sake of Allah, they are dead?

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

No, I hear they're living. You hear this in the in the clips, you're seeing it, some of them are saying it. And you say what kind of a faith they have, that this verse comes to them.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:35

I keep saying to myself, Allah who's allowing it, Allah is hacking, Allah is wise, and they have a way better life with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:36 --> 00:10:47

three, again in the verse Hello, I was not exactly planning in the sequence, but the I gave me the sequence and look at the sequence of Allah's pantile. Well in a blue one,

the slum Tokyo, and new Tokyo you will be tested. And that's not my words. That's your Hola, everybody, and a blue one, you will be tested.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:08

The problem especially living in here, the test, we haven't seen it.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:40

The one that Allah is talking about in this verse. We live in a very comfortable life. What is our problem? Can I buy a house? Or I'm going to stay stay living in renting place, right? Should I send my child to a public school? Or to a private school? Should I come to this Masjid? Or I go to the other? Should I have my car off? 2018 Or it's 23 Now I need to buy a new car. Am I right? Majority of us will inline hang.

00:11:41 --> 00:11:42

We're not starving.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:54

We have a roof. But Allah says we're in a blue one. You will be tested. And that's Omen as the common Allaha theta who is more truthful than Allah

most of us the answer is

The believer is a strong because he is connected with the strong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala elevate all the sufferings that we are seeing. May Allah subhanaw taala keep the people of Gaza strong.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:27

stuff Hirokawa to booty some Allahu Allah see now Mohammed wider earlier he was hobby he tested him and cathedra and I will open it to questions and keep it to the point please. I can kindly ask like the questions related to the topic. Anyone?

00:29:35 --> 00:29:39

Yes, Bismillah Osama Gali Kusama Rahmatullah.

00:29:40 --> 00:30:00

What do you do? You mentioned the feelings of hopelessness and those feelings but what do you do with the guilt? Like guilt feeling of because because I'm going to go home to my bed. My children are going to be there. I'm going to take my car, I have all of my comforts. Okay, but I know what's happening. How do you

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

you reconcile this is a very good question. And this is actually repeatedly is being said and felt. I feel guilty. Right. I feel a little bit upset when I see whatever we see. And then we go and have dinner and lunch and go to bed.

00:30:15 --> 00:30:53

Allah subhanahu wa Tada. This is the question everybody feeling guilty is good. That means you have faith. That means you're feeding for your brothers and sisters. That means the hadith of Roswaal, a salatu, Salam method mean efeito da Matta Raqami, what also named the parable of the believers with a feel for each other, check on each other, like the body, if one part gets sick, the rest of the body will respond with fever, you know, this hadith. So feeling guilty is very good news. As long as the guilt does not make me hopeless,

00:30:54 --> 00:31:41

what should I do? Then I turn to Allah and says you're a B, what can I do? I live here, and I shared it with you. Number one, everybody, turn back to Allah, please forgive me, this is not the time to start watching this and that this is not the time even to entertain each other. Right? This is the time that we are, this is time of Nawazuddin This is the time of calamity. And the time of calamity is You we turn fully to Allah subhanahu ATOD. It's not the time let's go and have lunch together. Unless the lunch together is going to bring something makes me stronger person and makes me helpful. So that's number two, three extra, when I felt I feel guilty, you know what I do get up and do to

00:31:41 --> 00:32:23

external cart. Get up and do real really, if you cannot pray or you're in a place you can just do do ha the more I feel on doing something that guilt becomes less. And this is what I need to do. And you will never know as I said, maybe you're Doha when you're feeling helpless. And you're really really in need and may ug Brahmaputra Dada, who else will respond to the person who is in need. So feeling guilt is good, but don't let it as we say paralyze you. And you say and and this is for everybody. And this is the time that you and me needs to be so grateful.

00:32:24 --> 00:32:26

There should be no word of complaint.

00:32:28 --> 00:32:50

Exactly. Now you're feeling the near mouth having a bad than your mouth having food, right? The near my feeding, living in peace. I need to be very grateful. This is one of the two I say to Allah subhanaw taala Yola, you Johanna emunah Shaqiri you're a bit make me among those who are grateful. And may Allah subhanaw taala make us your be me.

00:32:51 --> 00:32:52

Any other questions over here?

00:32:58 --> 00:32:58


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


00:33:02 --> 00:33:09

I have a question. But it might be a bit controversial, but I genuinely want to know the answer. Bismillah. So

00:33:11 --> 00:33:34

okay, so, especially in this really hard time, people are scared, especially those who are visibly Muslim, they're, they're scared to, you know, be Muslims or show their beliefs because they're scared of what will happen to them. Right. But is it a sin to hide that you're visibly Muslim? Because in Mecca when everyone's converting to

00:33:35 --> 00:33:46

Islam, like when they're Muslim, that they were shy to their faith and only went oh my God, Allah and I was like, okay, so I got your, your I got your question. Yeah, I'm going to be very, very honest.

00:33:47 --> 00:33:50

So should I take off my hijab when I'm in public?

00:33:52 --> 00:33:54

Should I not pray at work?

00:33:56 --> 00:33:57

Should I not say I'm a Muslim?

00:33:58 --> 00:34:00

Should I not come for Joomla?

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


00:34:05 --> 00:34:09

What is the answer? Let's see what the downloads community will tell me.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:11

What about the brothers?

00:34:13 --> 00:34:16

Absolutely not. How will Allah respond to my dua.

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


00:34:19 --> 00:34:26

having said that, I again, I lived September 11. That night, I had to go at 3am to deliver a baby.

00:34:27 --> 00:34:38

And everybody was so scared. You need to be cautious. Yes. For example, I tell the youth This is not the time I'm going to go at 9pm and have an ice cream.

00:34:39 --> 00:34:52

It's not the time for many reasons. Number one, I shouldn't the guilt feeling but mainly is be very cautious. Yes. Careful about your surroundings. But don't give up your dean.

00:34:54 --> 00:34:55

Look at them.

00:34:57 --> 00:34:58

Look at them.

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


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

Have seen you'll, you'll all have seen that the videos have seen the video of the man who came to the ER his son was dead and his younger son was dead. What did he say?

00:35:12 --> 00:35:18

He said, Don't you cry? This is not the time to cry. We have we have been honored.

00:35:20 --> 00:35:26

And I was like you're upbeat. So stay strong. But this is not the time that you're going to call people for Islam.

00:35:28 --> 00:35:33

If they ask you, you respond. Don't say things without knowledge.

00:35:34 --> 00:35:42

Don't say things without knowledge. Don't be emotional. Because once you are emotional, you're going to start saying things that is not correct.

00:35:44 --> 00:36:39

Keep your identity Allaha Yun haffi Allah, Allah is the One who protect us. But again, be cautious, be cautious. And the best thing you do, especially for us working is talk to the people around you. around you when they ask you about what is going on. Many people, Muslims young generation don't know anything about what is going on. I had my colleague asked me who aware is Palestine to tell me the geography. People don't know Allama forget calm effect no lie Allah moon, stay strong. Get together. May Allah reward you for this question because that verse Now Allah subhanaw taala made me remember, this is not the time that we Muslim. Muslims don't get together and be one hand. This is

00:36:39 --> 00:37:28

not the time that we quarrel and disagree yet you have the Dena Amanu either Allah Tito phiaton Fatboy to this verse in Surah MFAT the all believer when you meet a fear meaning the enemy stay steadfast, how do I stay steadfast and Allah gives it to you yeah even Lena Amman Donna Ketopia Telford Bhutto first thing was the cola cathedra a lot of dua a lot of dua like when I was getting into the play your Allah make it easy. Yeah, it was Yeah, Allah make me say if someone make me say the right thing, this is all Doha. This means I am connected with a way yeah you Halina Amma know all believers either a key to fietsen faithful to stay steadfast. He didn't say take off your hijab.

00:37:28 --> 00:37:47

Don't pray, don't say I'm a Muslim. No, stay steadfast. But then I get scared with Corolla cathedra keep the Dick That's the time I do a lot of stick fall on a lot of stick fall La Ilaha illa Allah subhana in your countrymen avoiding me to come out of the bottom of the whale.

00:37:49 --> 00:37:56

And then Walter your second verse while after your Allahu Allah Sudha and obey Allah and His messenger

00:37:58 --> 00:38:27

and then third these are they call it we'll call him out with about these what we need to stay steadfast. Well Atlanta as a whole do not call do not disagree is not the time the masjid should be here with a masjid should be there with an imam should do it has not the time will add to NASA. And he said why for tough shadow you will be way you will be weak and you will fail. We tend to have very Hong Kong and your strength will be gone.

00:38:28 --> 00:38:33

And then was Biru but a back again in Allahumma Savini.

00:38:35 --> 00:39:18

So he we need to stay strong. We need to be wise. We need to learn this is the time you teach again your family everybody teach them about what is going on. We had the whole program last Friday 1/3 of the program was about the history. What is the history what they are fighting about? Why do we Why do they say it's their land? Many people don't know the youth the youth they don't know many people if you did not grow up in the Middle East many people don't know that. That's a time teach without teach them to be arrogant. Just teach them knowledge is power. But stay stay steadfast. pray to Allah. I was debating this morning should I pray my fragile in the airport.

00:39:19 --> 00:39:44

And I literally said to myself shame on you. If you didn't pray. And I did Alhamdulillah brawny and everything went well. I even debated should I do sooner or not? You know this? We are human Alhamdulillah and people were smiling in my face or I've been accustomed to it but keep connected with Allah. Yeah, we are winning your Allah you are the strong, keep me strong. And he wouldn't be

00:39:46 --> 00:39:50

any other question? Yes. Mashallah. Yes?

00:39:52 --> 00:39:54

Can I have the Microsoft because I can't hear.

00:39:55 --> 00:39:58

And can you tell me your name and your age?

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

He's writing.

00:40:04 --> 00:40:08

My name is Aman and I am 10 years old. You know, what's your name mean?

00:40:09 --> 00:40:23

Peacekeeper mama. So 100 law. Yes. So you said that if you were to entertain yourself, it's kind of wrong, right? I didn't say it is wrong. I said it's not the right time. So like,

00:40:24 --> 00:40:41

Yes, sir. If like tomorrow I wanted to go down and watch TV. Like, would it be wrong? what's already been tomorrow? Okay. I love the question. No, really? You know what the question tells me you weren't really paying attention. Mashallah, what are you going to be watching?

00:40:42 --> 00:40:46

I probably like a show on Disney plus.

00:40:50 --> 00:40:51

Where does daddy?

00:40:53 --> 00:40:54

Or where is mama?

00:40:56 --> 00:41:04

I will say the following. I'm not going to say right or wrong, because I really don't know exactly what are you going to watch? I will say

00:41:05 --> 00:41:06

Can I ask you a question?

00:41:07 --> 00:41:22

Are you feeling for the children who are suffering? Of course, I love it. I love it. This is how it should be. Do you think watching the Disney tomorrow would help them? No, then what is the answer? No. That's it.

00:41:23 --> 00:41:25

And this is for everybody.

00:41:26 --> 00:41:47

I love the question. May Allah reward you? Everything we are going to do for him is Disney. For me could be something else for the brothers could be something else for the sisters could be something else. The question what I am doing? Is it going to help them picking up my Quran and reading? Is it going to help them?

00:41:48 --> 00:41:50

Yes, how? Because I'll be stronger.

00:41:52 --> 00:42:07

So I'm not gonna say haram wrong. It's just this is the question. Is it gonna be helping them in any way? Helping having a justice go ahead and do it? Baraka Luffy Kiana Can you can you come with me to California?

00:42:09 --> 00:42:12

Okay, any other question? Yes.

00:42:13 --> 00:42:14

Go ahead.

00:42:15 --> 00:42:16


00:42:17 --> 00:42:21

you work in a corporate organization, email that

00:42:22 --> 00:42:53

we feel so sorry for Israel and whatnot, right? At that time, I feel so bad, like, you know why they are supporting only Israel, they don't know the entire. And I as a person wanted to send an email to them, I drafted it, I put it in the draft, but I didn't send it for various reasons. Michelle, here you go. I'm gonna I'm gonna interrupt you, because this is probably happening everywhere. So you this support we are seeing this is the difference between now and September 11. The support is unprecedent.

00:42:54 --> 00:43:03

And letters being sent to schools that are being sent to everywhere. What we do, actually, I just got just before I came,

00:43:04 --> 00:43:32

there was one one similar incident. And actually a couple of people responded, but you have to be very wise. So I highly recommend you reach out to your local organizations to tell you what to write, write, again, polite, and, and then the the organization actually responded with another. I don't remember the detail, please forgive me. But they responded with similar

00:43:34 --> 00:43:45

email. That same justice injustice is for both sides. They donate it for one side, they ended up donating to the other side. So again, it depends. But this is the least we can do.

00:43:46 --> 00:44:06

That at least we respond in a way that this is I mean, schools, I have one of my friends, the schools last Friday, they sent an email to all the students was ready. I don't have tap in here, but they're in California. She responded in a very nice way. She showed it to me. And she said, as you are worried about the other students, I'm worried about my child.

00:44:07 --> 00:44:24

And they had a very nice response. So basically, we need to act but we need to act in a polite and firm and reasonable way we don't want to come out as we are. We are unfair. If you respond to injustice with another injustice, then what did we do?

00:44:25 --> 00:44:38

So we have to be really careful. And but also ask Allah and I always do this before I speak before I write ya make me speak what pleases you make me write what a pleases? And may Allah make it easy?

00:44:41 --> 00:44:59

Yes, yes, Samaniego ally consider one of the questions that I had was it's in relation to the amount of boycotting that we need to do so some of the companies during this time donated money or gave money to Israel aid in that respect.

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

If we own something of that brand, should we sell it? And I know like going forward, we shouldn't be purchasing it, but should we sell it to not represent that brand or its logo anymore? I, I wouldn't because what are you going to? It's not going to help.

00:45:18 --> 00:45:33

I mean, if it's gonna make you feel better do it. But there is, there is many ways we can support. And as I said, number one, because that's how the Muslims were support where God victory before it was actually the DUA.

00:45:34 --> 00:46:10

Right? Al Ahzab the trench you all know this, the Sierra, they didn't fight, they didn't fight and they were all surrounded. Right and there was a betrayal in the back in Medina. It was a Doha and they were the real Muslims, meaning obedient to Allah subhana wa Tada and stop by they will give it to them right away. But this is the main two things we need to do is if you told me no, choose one thing I will say go back to Allah and be the right to have the right servant and keep asking him and you don't know what Allah will do with your DUA inshallah.

00:46:13 --> 00:46:18

I we we have to you I am the guest so you are the host you told me what to do.

00:46:20 --> 00:46:33

Right, okay, Giacomo Hirens Hannukah Lahoma will be handy. I showed you the Hydra and stuff we will cover to bully SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad, while early he was heartbeat esteem and cathedral desert como la Hey melody
