So, brothers is a very important perspective that we have to put into our minds I'll tell you why. Because this dunya What is this doing?

00:00:42--> 00:00:47

This doing is a mess this dunya is full of arguments. Ego

00:01:34--> 00:01:42

Look at the junior brothers and sisters look at Somalia. famine, under our noses a famine, a loss of power with

00:01:44--> 00:01:59

the gentlemen nurse. We're here for the people not meanness not from the people, leanness for the people. So we're here to take care of the affairs of humanity. We're here to take care of the affairs of our brothers and sisters.

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

It's upon a lot.

00:02:03--> 00:02:08

Some brothers are running away from their families, because they can't watch the families die.

00:02:10--> 00:02:11

This is the reality of

00:02:13--> 00:02:19

some men grown men, Somali men are running away from the kids

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

because they can't bear to watch their family die from hunger.

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

Must mothers are walking the streets? They're walking the streets.

00:02:31--> 00:02:41

And they have six children. And because they're too heavy, she has to leave to on the road to die. So the rest of them survive. Imagine the dilemma.

00:02:43--> 00:02:46

How do you think the only thing more merciful than a mother is Allah?

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

So think about the dunya people

00:03:06--> 00:03:16

unhemmed Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah my bad brothers I greet you with a woman sees me greetings of peace. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:03:18--> 00:03:24

I know you've been sitting here for a very long time, inshallah. The break of the fast is very soon.

00:03:26--> 00:04:13

And on the topic of fasting, I think we need to address what Allah subhana wa Taala says in the Quran with regards to fasting a line the Quran says yeah, you have levena M and o quotevalet. Como cM kalakuta Bella Latina in public. Welcome Tata hoon. What does this mean? Think about how Allah subhanho wa Taala is addressing you think about this, I want you to really think about how Allah subhana wa Taala is dressing the Muslim. He's saying yeah, you have levena Manu. Oh, you who believe Ally's raising our status to that of a speck of dust in the universe to someone who's a believer. This was doing Yeah, you know, oh, you believe oh you believe

00:04:15--> 00:04:36

raising our speck of dust as a human being as a ray a rearrangement of carbon and molecules and this whole universe and elevating our status to people who believe. Think about how much apana water is addressing us. Could you Valley Kumasi m fasting has been prescribed for you? Meaning

00:04:37--> 00:04:46

that it's an easy thing because could you buy in the Arabic language in the passive form so it's an easy thing I love seeing this thing is not meant to have any hardship on you.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

Could be by la cama cama. cama De La Nina minutes kubla Khan, like has been prescribed for those before you so you know the only people have done this before. Other people have done it. Other people have done this

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

So it's an easy thing. It's worked for them is going to work for this on that as well. And how does Allah end? Lakota? takuan. In order for you to attain taqwa, the mindfulness, the God consciousness, the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So look how Allah subhana wa tada is telling us that we must fast. Think about how Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling the human being the Muslim, how they must fast. Allah is the Lord of the whole universe. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:05:37--> 00:06:04

all grateful thanks and you to the Lord that created everything. Allah is the Lord of the universe and he could have said, You must fast full stop, turn the page a look at it done that Allah could have said fast call us full stop bus to car. Yeah, it's just get over it You must want but Alyssa panna with I love his love of his mercy. He sent the Quran

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

via the messengers on the love where it was some who we know is a messenger is a mercy to the whole of mankind in order to really shake our hearts to penetrate our hearts. So in the month of Ramadan, we know brothers, that is a month of guidance is a month of guidance. And it's a month of us attaining God consciousness for us to attain the taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But what is this mean? Well we know in the Islamic tradition that when we

00:06:35--> 00:06:45

have Taqwa we are eligible for gender. Think about this concept. Gender, we are eligible for this place is beautiful place.

00:06:46--> 00:06:55

So gender brothers is a very important perspective that we have to put into our minds. I'll tell you why. Because this dunya What is this dunya

00:06:56--> 00:07:01

this dunya is a mess, this dunya is full of arguments. Ego.

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

Think about the dunya

00:07:36--> 00:07:46

compare the dunya to the Accra compare 30 years, 40 years, 50 years 80 years to forever Jana O'Hanlon, we have to make this decision.

00:07:48--> 00:08:13

And look at the junior brothers and sisters look at Somalia. famine, under our noses is a famine. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran. Okay, gentlemen, nurse. We're here for the people not meanness not from the people, leanness for the people. So we're here to take care of the affairs of humanity. We're here to take care of the affairs of our brothers and sisters.

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

It's upon Allah.

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

Some brothers are running away from their families, because they can't watch their families die.

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

This is the reality of

00:08:28--> 00:08:34

some men grown men, Somali men are running away from their kids.

00:08:35--> 00:08:38

Because they can't bear to watch the family die from hunger.

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

Mothers are walking the streets, the walking the streets.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

And they have six children. And because they're too heavy, she has to leave to on the road to die. So the rest of them could survive. Imagine a dilemma.

00:08:57--> 00:09:00

And there's hardly the only thing more merciful than a mother is Allah.

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

So think about the dunya people.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

Were in Pakistan when we had the floods.

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

We have the floods in Pakistan,

00:09:11--> 00:09:24

that demolish towns and villages. People were dying. There was a kid that was looking for food running and looking for food continuously. And it was assigned despair. That kid committed suicide.

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

This is Pakistan.

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

So yes, we have to give sadaqa to these people. And yes, we have to. It's a follow on us to deal with this issue. But I have to say something very honest to you. Giving sadaqa is not going to solve the problem. Giving sadaqa is not going to solve the issue. While law his sadaqa will not solve the issue. Charity will not solve the issue. What would solve the issue brothers and sisters I'm gonna be very brief here is dour. Think about this because the issue in Pakistan the issue in Somalia, the issue

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

Across the world has nothing to do with resources, has nothing to do with lack of wealth has nothing to do with lack of food. In America. 10 million people are dying because they eat too much because of obesity because they're fat. That's the reality of America and other places in the West. More people are dying of too much food, no food,

00:10:26--> 00:10:50

heart attacks, cancers, obesity, so has nothing to do with lack of food. Allah subhanho wa Taala is out of Maduro him. He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. This is Allah and he's given have given us enough resources on this planet, to deal with problems like Somalia, and like Pakistan, and all the issues in the dunya. This is the reality of Allah.

00:10:51--> 00:11:32

So what is the issue? The issue then is of distribution. Think about this. The reason we have famine, the reason we have economic problems, the reason we have injustice and all these issues with regards to economics is because of distribution. We're not following what Allah subhana wa Taala has told us to do with regards to our nations to distribute the wealth. According to the UNDP report. 250 people own more wealth than 2 billion people on this planet. Think about this 250 people own more wealth than 2 million people on this planet

00:11:34--> 00:11:55

isn't an issue. This is a problem. And the Quran and Sunnah has given us the solution, which is the distribution of wealth. Think about this, Allah subhana wa has not left us alone. Alhamdulillah he gave us the Quran and Sunnah to deal with this issue. And the issue is the concept, the idea and mechanism and a way of life.

00:11:58--> 00:12:25

And we have history to justify this, even the the Jews, if you go to the Western academic sources, in 1453, in the 15th century, you had a rabbi writing a letter to his brothers in Europe. He was living in the US manakala for the Ottoman period. And he said, Come to the land of the Turks, come to the land of the Muslims come to the land of the Muslims.

00:12:26--> 00:13:07

We have lots of money, which are fruits of the earth. We're not burdened with tax. The Jesus thing is about us, because we're implementing that mechanism of distribution, distributing the wealth. This is the reality, almost even alica da da da da Allahu anhu. What did he do? What did he do? He was going to cure Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know the story. He was running to kill the suta Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam. But then he heard the Quran because he was diverted to his sister's house. And he had to sort of Taha and what happened. His fitrah understood that this is the hawk because of the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:08--> 00:13:51

Then after you were todo sobre, la sala lo Allah himself, and he became a Muslim. But the story doesn't finish there. He was the second caniff of Islam, the second ruler of Islam after Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu. And what did he do? When there was a famine in Medina, when there was a famine, just like a famine today, just like the famines in Somalia and their families is going to happen in the future, probably because of what's going on in the world. There was a famine in Medina, and he used to walk the streets of Medina people, he used to walk the streets of Medina, he's walked to the outskirts of the streets of Medina, at the edges of Medina. And he would see a woman as she was

00:13:51--> 00:13:59

boiling water or stones to keep her children's to stop crying, because they were so hungry, because they were so hungry.

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

But what did he do? He went all the way back to the vital man. You know what the Bible is, is the house of wealth. In Islam, we have the concept of vital man, the house of resources, the house of wealth, and he took the resources, and he walked back to that sister's house. And when he was working, his servants said, Yeah, remember me don't mean let me carry the stuff for you. What did he say? He said, You're not going to carry my luggage on a day of judgment.

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

That's the reality people. This is the reality of a man who had Islam and Tao he'd and he walked to the sister's house and he cooked the food for her. Or even Alyssa tabo radi Allahu anhu cooked the food for her. And other innovations say that he slept next door. So when he woke up in the morning, he could see the children smiling. It's panela This is the reality of the

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

Heat. And therefore this is the reality of the dour. Because when we call people to Islam, or the role in a civilian have bigger call to the way of your Lord, when we do this, we don't just call people to gentlemen, we call them to the success in the dunya. Just like we had the success in the past, that was the reality of Islam at that time, or there are a bigger call to the way of your Lord, which means calling to our values, according to our principles, call into our ideas, code into our concepts. Think about this, according to our ideas, brothers and sisters, cooling to ideas, which means solving the problem in Somalia, because the problem is not of money, it's of an idea of

00:15:47--> 00:16:29

being able to distribute wealth, taking two and a half percent of the rich and giving it to the poor, gaining this other car and giving it to the poor, not mucking about with food prices that create this ridiculous problem with the food issue. All these concepts belong to the Islam, stopping a river stopping interest, because interest is an impediment to the distribution of wealth. All these ideas in Islam and Islamic economics not to bore you the details. They're all there in Islam. So when we call people to the deen, we call people to the very values and ideas that will solve the problems of the dunya. So if you really love your brothers and sisters, if you really love them,

00:16:30--> 00:17:12

then you would give effort will do action and your money to the dollar. Because that's the solution given for the company and there is only good for us is only good for our own sake just makes us feel better. But it's not going to solve the problem. We need to be long term. That's the short term solution. We need to have vision. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had long term vision. He had a long term vision. When he was in the battle, and he they were almost getting defeated. They hadn't almost no hope. What did the prophets of Allah do? When he strike the rock in the spot came out? He said, Well, law he pushes yours.

00:17:15--> 00:17:26

He said at the time of kneeling defeat. He said he had a vision, saying we're going to take pleasure, don't worry about this. You may think you're on the backfoot. But the profits are lower it was on had a vision.

00:17:27--> 00:17:37

And when Abu Bakr and Omar Omar, may Allah be pleased with both of them, when they became empowered, they took the vision of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And it was successful.

00:17:38--> 00:18:14

So we really love our brothers and sisters, we need to start supporting the solution, not the short term solution. Yes, we must do that. And we have to continue. But we must also support the long term solution which is dour itself. Because imagine, imagine if Obama became a Muslim, imagine why not the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give Dawa to the Quraysh to the leaders of the time. Imagine all the World Bank is the IMF. They became Muslim they would use the principles of the deen to deal with these issues of famine, stopping river

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

distribution of wealth South Africa

00:18:19--> 00:18:43

and other aspects of Islam. So don't underestimate brothers and sisters the power of the dollar because the dollar itself changes lives the dollar cause people to Islam which means calling people to our ideas, which will solve the problem of the dunya you will have as an either point as being Muslim, we have to believe in this. If we don't believe in this when a Muslim because we have to believe what Allah says is perfect.

00:18:47--> 00:19:25

So just to summarize, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, let me know that you believe him you have enough see, you're not a true believer unless you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. So yes, we want them to have food, shelter and clothing. We want them to, for them to be taken care of. We want all the Muslims all of humanity to have the solution of Islam, which will give them food, shelter and clothing. As the prophet SAW the lower eyelid with some said in the Hadees and didn't meet the the son of Adam. All he needs is food, shelter, clothing, defining the essential needs for us. This is why the leaders of Islam like Omar Ibn Al Fatah, Bharati Allahu

00:19:25--> 00:19:28

anhu, he used to see the wealth of the whole nation.

00:19:29--> 00:19:58

And he would never go above that wealth. He'll be the poorest person who act and be like the poorest person in the in the city. Do you know this? So when the poorest person was a little bit better, he would get better. So everyone to have food, shelter and clothing. So if we really want people to be removed from the suffering of the dunya brothers and sisters, we need to call people to Islam because that's the solution.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

Our own individually

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

South Africa is not going to work. We need to be a mass movement globally and within this country to call people to the dean. So the future politicians, the future intellectuals, the future professors, the future academics, the future entrepreneurs, the future businessmen, the future scientists, the future doctors, the future nurses will carry tawheed

00:20:24--> 00:20:41

this is what we want, they will carry Tao heat, which therefore means they will carry the solution of Islam to deal with these problems. We have to really understand this. This is the reality of Islam. And we have history to prove this. So

00:20:42--> 00:21:05

brothers, this is why we're here today. To try and engage with you seek to support efforts like this. Allah says in the Quran, Walter, come in, come on atonia the owner a look at why morona bill Murphy and Helena and in Moncure, but we'll move on. Let the rise amongst your band of people just like you.

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

They will call to Islam. Yeah, the owner lol hate.

00:21:11--> 00:21:32

This means according to Ibn katheer, who was the classical scholar who explained the Quran, he said This means the whole of Islam, all of Islam, not just the prayer, not just the fasting, but the economics as well. And the principles to deal with the problems in Somalia and the principles to deal with the injustice in Pakistan, around the world, wherever the case may be.

00:21:33--> 00:21:40

They will call to assign the commander right the forbid the wrong and listen to this very carefully, what will occur who will move

00:21:41--> 00:21:55

and they are the ones who will attain success. Do you know what this means? Good to be he said that when Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions what Allah He can move in your home. He means those who are attaining Jenna

00:21:56--> 00:22:01

we all want generally people with the dunya is is nothing.

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

So brothers, before we start to break our fast, inshallah, I'm going to call you to see if you can support this. First and foremost, I want to raise of hands, who believes sincerely with a class that they really believe that calling people to die to Islam isn't going to solve the problems of the Ummah,

00:22:25--> 00:22:34

who put your hand up if you believe this, put your hand up if you believe that calling people to Islam is going to solve the problems of Somalia and all these issues.

00:22:35--> 00:22:52

Okay, most of us believe this. So we will believe that calling people to the principles of Islam to sow heed will solve these issues because we will we will implement what Islam says about dealing with economics and family etc. So if you all agree this we should not support it.
