There are two main topics

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

that any hottie these days wouldn't ignore. The first one is definitely what is happening in Gaza or the occupation of Gaza, the invasion of Gaza, and the general aggression against the Palestinians. And the second one is

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

the

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

coming of the blessed month of Ramadan.

00:00:48 --> 00:00:56

My dear respected brothers and sisters, I find it that there is a correlation and a link between both.

00:00:59 --> 00:01:02

First of all, the month of Ramadan

00:01:03 --> 00:01:13

is a month of a civilizational change. It is a month of a civilizational reform.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

It is one of the pillars of Islam.

00:01:18 --> 00:01:45

And as we all know, Allah Allah Allah mentioned it twice in the Quran or three times in one place. In Surah Al Baqarah you have the Dean M and o cootie Valley como Sam, comma, cookie, Bella Latina and publikum the hola Contacta own. All you who believe fasting was prescribed upon you as it was prescribed upon previous nations. So you may attain taco

00:01:46 --> 00:01:51

taco My dear brothers and sisters is is a deformation

00:01:52 --> 00:02:34

is rebuilding the civilization of humanity based on divine principles and values. This is the reality of a Taqwa. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Islam is built on five pillars. She heard that to Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah Muhammad Rasool Allah, performing salah, giving Zakah and fasting the month of Ramadan and performing Hajj. Now, in the Quran, Ramadan was mentioned once and I asked of cm, were mentioned in Surah Al Baqarah. Only.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:40

How come this month that we fast once a year

00:02:41 --> 00:02:43

is one of the pillars of Islam.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:56

It means beyond what we understand of it. It means that we really need to rebuild the reform ourselves based on

00:02:57 --> 00:03:02

fasting and the messages of fasting the principles of fasting.

00:03:04 --> 00:03:11

Now my dear brothers and sisters, what is the link between this and what is happening in Palestine?

00:03:12 --> 00:03:47

Now, when many people speak about the atrocities that are taking place, against our brothers and sisters in Russia, in Palestine, they always say that Allah, Allah Allah is testing the ummah. And Allah, Allah Allah says when a blow can be shared, we will hide the fitna. We test you with good things and with bad things. And Allah Allah Allah Allah says in JAMA Allah Allah is in Atlanta, Helene abdomen, accent Ramona, we created the whole earth we decorated the whole earth Hello, call

00:03:47 --> 00:04:05

multiple Hetalia BeWelcome created everything for one purpose which is to be tested. So, we are going through a test and the people of Russia they are going through a test as well. That is true. However,

00:04:07 --> 00:04:38

there is another meaning of those tests and those catastrophes which is linked to Ramadan and link to what we want to achieve and what Allah Allah Allah wants from us. My dear brothers and sisters, Allah Allah Allah created us to be the leaders of the entire humanity. Kontum Hi, Ron Marino collegiately necesita Morona Vilma Rufio, attend Helena Animoca. You are the best nation ever raised to mankind,

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

believing in Allah

00:04:42 --> 00:04:59

in joining the good and forbidding the evil and believing in Allah, Allah Allah. So Allah, Allah, they do not create their own mouth Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and send them, send to them the best of nation Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who says I am

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

The Best of mankind on the Day of Resurrection and he is the best of mankind in the dunya and in the era, and Allah Allah Allah granted us the best and everything the best in traditions, the best in guidelines, the best in principles, the best in what we eat the best and what we drink the best in what we close even the day of Duma, which is the best of the days Allah Allah Allah Allah honored us by giving that which is the best.

00:05:30 --> 00:05:49

So when Allah Allah Allah, Allah honors us by giving us the best and everything we need to be the best and everything and we need to lead the entire humanity to the best in everything we need to live their entire humanity to submit to Allah and worship Allah.

00:05:51 --> 00:06:15

What can Alika Jana como Mata once upon Lita Kuno, shahada and a nurse way Hakuna Rasulullah Alikum Shahida, we selected you to be balanced to be the best of nations. Why, in order to testify before the entire mankind on the Day of Resurrection, that you have passed the message of Islam to them?

00:06:16 --> 00:06:20

So, my dear brothers and sisters,

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

when Allah Allah, Allah, Allah says that this OMA is not achieving

00:06:26 --> 00:06:29

as he wants us to achieve.

00:06:31 --> 00:06:52

Allah, Allah, Allah sends calamities on them, in order for them, to reform themselves, to go back to Allah, to reform themselves based on their divine values, then they will become the leaders of the entire humanity again,

00:06:54 --> 00:07:04

it is to understand this principle, my dear brothers and sisters, if you have a child, and you know that your child can achieve,

00:07:05 --> 00:07:22

and he was achieving, but sometimes because of laziness, because of negative influence from social or peer pressure, whatever, he retreated, and he's not performing as he or she should be performing.

00:07:23 --> 00:07:36

You might advise him once or twice, if he doesn't listen, you might even subject him to some punishments, some hardship, in order for him to wake up

00:07:37 --> 00:07:45

and to be achieving person as he should be. An hour as he should be.

00:07:46 --> 00:08:16

This is exactly what is happening to our ummah. Throughout history, we were the main superpower. When we retreated, Allah, Allah Allah sends these punishments upon us. Yes, it is hard, it is very painful. But Allah Allah, Allah, Allah wants to shock us, in order for us for the entire Ummah, to wake up again, and to be in the leading position again.

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

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:08:20 --> 00:08:30

Ramadan is a month of reform based on divine principles, divine values.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:46

And in order for us to achieve to be the best of nations to be the leading nation, as Allah, Allah, Allah Allah wants from us. Here, I would like to give you

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

reform plan

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

based on four steps,

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

four steps.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:00

If we

00:09:01 --> 00:09:19

adopted those four steps, and implemented them in sha Allah, you will see that the OMA is another superpower and these atrocities, this injustice that is taking place will not take place any more.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:26

The first one is to reform our iman

00:09:29 --> 00:09:36

to reform our iman, how to do that to be connected to Allah, Allah Allah

00:09:38 --> 00:09:58

and Ramadan is an essential pillar to achieve that goal. Which is to reform our Eman yah, yah holiday and Ironman ocotea Ballet camassia who come up with the ballerina and publikum what for the uncontactable so you reconnect with Allah, Allah Allah

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

It is

00:10:02 --> 00:10:03

a major

00:10:04 --> 00:10:38

re formation process that will continue for 30 years for 30 days in which on a daily basis, you are going to fast from dawn to Muslim and then after that you will do your taraweeh. During that you will recite more Quran and the Quran is the divine speech is the essence of reconnection with Allah Jalla Allah it is the essence of the formation

00:10:39 --> 00:10:48

and the month of Ramadan is the month of Quran shall Ramadan Allah, Allah fie him Quran who, who then the nurse, you have a united mean alHuda well for

00:10:49 --> 00:11:01

the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam used to study the Quran with the aim to debrief in Ramadan mode.

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

So,

00:11:05 --> 00:11:53

when we have this is cool of 30 days with these activities, then we will be reconnecting with Allah, Allah, Allah, and we will be more attached to the Divine, and then we will be able to reform ourselves and we will be able to reform others. And the essence of this is to tell the entire humanity that the purpose of creation is not this dunya this materialism this materialistic life. The purpose of this dunya is to worship the Creator in order to be to for him to be pleased with

00:11:53 --> 00:11:59

you. And he will place you in Jana Tilford dose once you die.

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

So this is the first step to reform our Ummah, the formation of iman, the second step to reform ourselves is the unity of the ummah. We need to reform the unity of the ummah.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:25

Allah, Allah Allah commanded us to be united. Why test the movie?

00:12:27 --> 00:12:33

Hold together, all of you upon the rope of Allah, Allah Allah, don't be disunited.

00:12:35 --> 00:12:41

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam said Yet Allah. Now Jamal,

00:12:43 --> 00:12:55

the hands of Allah Allah Allah Allah is with Gemma at the hands of Allah Jalla Allah, it gives us power, it gives us unity, it gives us a strength, it gives us courage.

00:12:57 --> 00:13:04

And my dear brothers and sisters, Ramadan is a pillar

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

of

00:13:06 --> 00:13:19

the unity process, the unit theory formation Subhanallah most of the pillars of Islam and had for example, a unifying activity for the entire ummah.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:54

Ramadan is another unifying activity, unifying pillar of the Ummah, how is this their entire owner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whether in China, whether in Africa, whether in America, whether now in Gaza, whether in Europe everywhere in the world, they fast one month and all of them fast the that month in a similar way from fajr all the way to Maghreb.

00:13:56 --> 00:13:59

It is as I always like to say to

00:14:01 --> 00:14:15

to present it, it is a political global, it is a global political, religious reform nation or demonstration

00:14:16 --> 00:14:25

where the entire world is observing a change, what is this a change the month of Ramadan,

00:14:27 --> 00:14:31

even the enemies even the

00:14:33 --> 00:14:41

occupation is talking about the month of Ramadan. Even the United States when they

00:14:42 --> 00:14:59

are talking to the occupation forces, they say finish it before the month of Ramadan because the month of Ramadan, Muslims go back to their religion. It is a month of victory for Muslims. It is among flattie forms Muslims, Muslims

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

All over the world, they will be making dua for the people of Gaza.

00:15:08 --> 00:15:09

Subhanallah

00:15:10 --> 00:15:26

it is a very strong factor of uniting the ummah. Not only that, but as we say, it is a very old, one of the strongest factors that will connect us with our Lord Allah, Allah Allah.

00:15:28 --> 00:15:31

So this is the second point, unity.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:37

The third point, my dear brothers and sisters, we need knowledge.

00:15:39 --> 00:16:02

The OMA that is ignorant, cannot be successful and cannot be powerful. And this is known. And that's why Allah Allah Allah says in the Maya Allah Hammond ADA Delia anima. Indeed, those who fear Allah, Allah out of these colors, and Allah, Allah Allah commanded the Prophet sallahu wa salam to ask him for more knowledge, work or a busy Dyneema

00:16:04 --> 00:16:12

and knowledge in general whether Islamic knowledge or non Islamic so called non Islamic knowledge, there is nothing called non Islamic knowledge.

00:16:14 --> 00:16:31

But directly Islamic or indirectly Islamic knowledge in general is a source of power for the ummah. And we need that the fourth element of this plan is to be more active,

00:16:32 --> 00:16:33

to be more active.

00:16:34 --> 00:16:44

My dear brothers and sisters, this OMA was not created to worship Allah, Allah Allah in the masjid on li

00:16:47 --> 00:17:11

Allah, Allah Allah Allah says, Well, my fellow after dinner well inside Lilia Budo, and I created Denon ins to worship Me, in the street where you worship Allah, Allah Allah at work, we worship Allah, Allah, Allah, at the schools, we worship Allah, Allah, Allah, we worship Allah, Allah, Allah at every single moment of our life when we sleep, if we sleep with the right intention, we worship Allah, Allah, Allah.

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

And Allah, Allah Allah

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

put, entrusted us with what guiding the entire humanity to worship Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:17:25 --> 00:17:31

And Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah created this OMA for this purpose.

00:17:32 --> 00:17:35

So we are not there to enjoy our life.

00:17:36 --> 00:17:49

If you want to enjoy your life, my dear brothers and sisters, then work hard now. So you enjoy your life after your die after your death.

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

Here

00:17:53 --> 00:17:57

there is a temporary enjoyment just to keep going.

00:17:59 --> 00:18:13

But we have diseases, we have illnesses, we have cancer, we have atrocities, we have bloodshed, we have killing, we have, we have the Zionist we have the enemies of Islam, we have all these

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

challenges around us.

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

Yes, enjoy your time in order to keep going. But the purpose of this life is not enjoyment. The purpose of this life is to work hard, so you will enjoy the real life will which is going to last for ever.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:57

Don't sell that life for a temporary enjoyment for a number of years in this life, which is not real which is fake. So, my dear brothers and sisters, Allah Jalla wa Allah wants us to understand who we are.

00:18:58 --> 00:19:00

And we need to be active.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:11

We need to we need to enjoy the good and forbidding evil we need to make sure that justice prevails

00:19:12 --> 00:19:13

on this earth.

00:19:15 --> 00:19:22

Allah Allah Allah Allah says yah, yah Alladhina amanu Kuno Pawan in Allah He shahada, I will test all you who believe

00:19:23 --> 00:19:26

it stand for Allah and establish justice.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:32

We need to be active politically, my dear brothers and sisters.

00:19:33 --> 00:19:36

And the general election will be coming soon.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:51

We need to know what to do, whom to vote for. We need to prepare our young children. So we see among them the right politicians

00:19:52 --> 00:19:59

who know who know how to play the political game. But in the meantime,

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

They have their own values and principles.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:10

This is what number one. Number two, we need, my dear brothers and sisters, our influence.

00:20:12 --> 00:20:13

And media.

00:20:14 --> 00:20:19

Media is one of the superpowers or one of the

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

one of the weapons of destruction or construction. So we need to be very active in terms of media. And we have to say that Alhamdulillah, the young Muslims have done very well in terms of winning the war of narratives that is taking place now, because of the invasion of Gaza.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:57

Thirdly, we need to be very active in terms of judiciary, and legal life legal side.

00:20:58 --> 00:21:31

Because one law can close all the misogyny easily. If we don't, if we don't have our influence in the legal system, we will be wiped out easily. Number four, we need to be strong in terms of economy and finance. We know that money, money makes things if you are poor, you are going to be weak. Number five, we need to have our influence in the educational system.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:39

educational system is educating our children. It is building the new generation.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:45

And number six, my dear brothers and sisters. So surely we need to be active.

00:21:47 --> 00:22:03

Because people have their own needs. If we don't fulfill those needs, then we are out of touch. And finally is the seventh point. We need to be active in Dawa, my dear brothers, my dear sisters.

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

The aggression against Russia is going to end. But the whole world is witnessing the injustice of the global system or the global systems. And they are looking for alternatives.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:29

The whole world is against the war in Gaza except the leadership in America.

00:22:30 --> 00:23:02

Only not America, even Americans are against the war on Gaza. But because of 5% or maybe one person of the American population. No one is able to stop these atrocities. This famine, they are inflicting famine on the people of Gaza. They are me. They don't find some of them. They said and we have seen this. They said by Allah we did not eat bread for the last two months.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:07

Some of them they said we could not have a shower

00:23:08 --> 00:23:26

for the last two months or three months. No one is able to stop this injustice and aggression. The whole world is against it. It is just because of the leadership of the United States they veto anything.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:30

The global system is unjust

00:23:31 --> 00:23:45

and who is going to bring this justice? I have a lot of hope in our young brothers and sisters that they will be part of a global change. To see justice prevailing

00:23:47 --> 00:24:02

Ramadan is a big opportunity for ourselves to reform ourselves and to be very active in Dawa My dear brothers and sisters. Let us conclude. Yes,

00:24:03 --> 00:24:10

the pain is too severe. However, Allah, Allah Allah promised

00:24:12 --> 00:24:34

the believers promise them victory will activate will in clean. And we need to be optimistic as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam used to be optimistic all the time. And we need to remember that the month of Ramadan is a month of victory for the entire ummah. So let us

00:24:35 --> 00:24:59

increase our connection with Allah, Allah Allah through the different activities we do we do during the month of Ramadan in order to reform ourselves and in order to deform the Ummah in order to reform the entire humanity, so that entire humanity will be a divine based humanity will work

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

Allah, Allah Allah.

00:25:02 --> 00:25:30
