Susana CGT Russa diva Hartman ambia Laila Ali heliski I was happy Let's be about 100 Today in our lobby, we recited the verse. So Hanna lady is Ravi Abdi he Laila minella Masjid al Haram in and mercy the XOR Ella de Vaca Hola Hola, Maria hoomin ayah Tina in the hobo semi algo See,

00:00:37--> 00:01:05

this verse reminds us of a very important incident that took place during the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the night of the ascension. This was the year in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had gone through so much difficulty so much difficulty. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had lost his uncle, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lost his wife Khadija de la Juana. And in this very same year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a very difficult incident that occurred in the city of Fife.

00:01:06--> 00:01:38

So as a reward of all this difficulty, Allah subhana wa tada Awards The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the journey of marriage. Now, regarding the journey of Mirage, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in this verse, that Glorified is the one who took his servant on a journey of the night, from the harem to much of the Aqsa. Now much of the harem, is the mercy of the where the Kaaba is. The mushers were the prophets of Allah while he was sitting worship Allah for the greater part of his life. And then Allah subhana wa tada took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam too much to the upside.

00:01:39--> 00:01:56

Both of these mosques were built by Ibrahim Ali Sam along with his sons, mushy the harem, the Kaaba Ibrahim Ali Salaam he built with his son is married Alison, most of the UK saw Abraham it said I'm also built, but this time he built it with his son is how can I

00:01:57--> 00:02:35

measure the upside is a very important landmark. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his Hadith referred to it as a harem, as a sacred land as a sanctuary, that there are three places the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that one has permission to travel to for the sake of worship. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, traveled to measure the height of the Kaaba, he said traveled to my Mosque, the mosque of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Medina munawwara. And the third the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, traveled to measure the axon. Now, before we go any forward, I want to ask the crowd here. Does anyone know where much of the

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

oxide is?

00:02:37--> 00:02:44

Yes, correct. in Palestine. The reason why this machine is called measure the upside, if I'm

00:02:45--> 00:03:09

in a city says, the reason why measure the upside is called measure the upside, because of the great distance that it lays between measure the height on the Kaaba and measure the upside. And this was one of the furthest massage. This was the first this must have been from much of the heart on earth that the Arabs have traveled to for the sake of visiting and for the sake of worship. Therefore, it's called much of the assault.

00:03:10--> 00:03:48

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and many narrations he mentioned the virtue of Murdoch's law, and one hidey hole Miss Alma De La Hoya and he mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that for a person to try to tie a fermented ox or whether it's 400, Ramadan, will be a result of all of that person's sin being forgiven. One day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to a companion, that if you have the ability, go and travelled to measure the upside, and patriotic either, and if by chance, for some reason or the other, you cannot travel there, then at least set oil for the lanterns of much of the saw, and you will get the reward of traveling there.

00:03:49--> 00:04:24

Now many of us first of all, have never even thought or the idea has never even crossed our mind to travel too much without so much as a sanctuary. And just as we make dua to Allah Ya Allah allow me to go for Allah. Ya Allah allow me to go for Hajj, we should also make de la ilaha illAllah me allow me to go to Machu doxa and allow me to pray to a god there just as the prophets that alone while he was sitting pretty true to gather, one of the most honorable moments in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on the night of Israelite marriage, where the Prophet said a loved one he was Selim arrives to be to McAleese in the companionship of juvenile Islam. And the journey

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

was made on the Buddha from much of the Haram too much.

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

When he arrived here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tied the the buraq and then he entered into the mosque, and the narration mentioned that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, entered entered into the mosque from all four directions, he heard people saying to him, might have Amina Bian Salah well consider that Welcome to the pious profit into the pious brother of ours. And all of these people that had gathered together were actually the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala over 124,000 prophets are gathered, just to be in the presence of the prophets that have long lived

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

He was sent him and this is grand gathering occurs where in measure the axon, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then says that I was then pushed forward to lead these prophets in tuukka in prayer. Imagine what kind of honor the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given on this night, that the prophets of Allah who it was sent him as being instructed to leave the complete all of these profits in Sala in measure the upside so this shows us the under a budget for the greater part of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he faced towards much softer prayer. for 14 years roughly the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam The Prophet said along with

00:05:35--> 00:05:55

sentiments Allah was instructed to pray towards much of the law. And then later on in the life of the Prophet salon said I'm 16 to 17 months after migration, the ayah is revealed in the second draft of the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For one language Hakka Shalom, Shalom, right now turn your face to the direction of much of the harm when it comes to prayer.

00:05:56--> 00:06:35

So measure the Hara measure the XR is a very important place for Muslims as well. It's definitely a place where Allah subhana wa tada has blessed with spirituality, remember was already earlier when he decided to write his alamuddin he traveled all the way to measure the upside. And he wrote the image upside. Now one thing I want to make clear when we talk about much of the upside when we talk about the huddle buxa we're not talking about a particular building, we're talking about a compound, and within that compound lies full but the Sahara within that compound lies measured oxa the famous budget that we see these days with a black dome. This was actually built at the instruction of

00:06:36--> 00:06:52

photography, when Amara de la one arrived in, in in Palestine for the purpose of conquering it. The Muslims had been victorious in the Battle of Yarmouk. And when they came to the borders, the area the city limits of much of the upside of Palestine.

00:06:54--> 00:07:28

The people of Palestine said we will only surrender our city to your leader. And therefore, the last one was invited. And when he came there, he said to the people show me where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led the other prophets in prayer. And when he was brought to that location, on one of the along one, he began to cry because he saw that the Romans had not kept that place clean and tidy. So then he used his very own hands to clean that area. Allahu Akbar see, on one of the long run, he thought of it as his own honor to clean the place where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam prayed to clean the place where the other prophets prayed. And after cleaning that place,

00:07:28--> 00:07:59

they prayed Salah there and then on one of the last one instructed that this place should be pleased should be made into a Masjid. Now one thing interesting to note, when I'm under the law when I arrived in much of the upset in Palestine, he didn't instruct that the Jews and Christians should be kicked out of the city. He actually allowed all the religions that were being practiced there to continue to be practiced there. He didn't kick them out at all. even beyond that, when Sultan said we're going to be conquered Philistine the day he conquered puts the first thing he did was he got off his horse and he fell into such that

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

thinking Allah subhana wa tada for allowing peace to once again be settled into this land. Because for some reason we one thing that we witness is that this area of woods and what surrounds it Allah subhana wa tada refers to boots as a holy city as a holy land sorry, holy compound and the area around it Allah subhana wa tada also praises along the way Jelena Quran says Subhana Allah vs robbia de Laila middle mushy that haram

00:08:29--> 00:09:05

allottee Baraka hollow, that we have blessed the region around measure that we have blessed the region around it. And not only that, when it comes to the story of Rahim Allah said Allah subhanho wa Taala says that when he brought him on Islam was launched into the fire we set to the fire. What did I know? Cooney Baraka was Ramadan I brought him that oh fire be peaceful and cool for Ibrahimovic. Then after that, then the next verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, when a Gina who are Luton, Lottie Baraka Rafi Hara Lala me, and then we gave security and we gave freedom to Ibrahim Ali Salaam and his nephew, loot Dolly Salama nephew, Ibrahim Ali salam, and then

00:09:07--> 00:09:45

they traveled to a land that we have blessed referring to my shuksan Allah subhana wa without up again in the story of Solomon Ali Salaam. He says what is Philemon Rehan gdb me here at Baraka sulamani salaam had a wind that will take him to the blessed land. Again, this is referring to much of the upside. Now in the story of Musa alayhis salaam, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh Musa Go and tell your people and musala Go and tell your people to go and conquer the blessing land and masala Salaam says to his people, you're calling me out of the Latino condesa or where people enter into the sacred land enter into the blessed land. So the reason why this is called the sacred land is

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

because of the number of prophets that came here. The great amount of revelation that was sent down here, you know, imagine all the profits of unreason IE that lived in this holy land, and imagine all the revelation that must have come down in here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

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

narration himself that there were three places where Naboo was sent down to me in Medina, and much of the Haram in Makkah, and then and also in much of the ox up. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to the area around much of that sought to be a blessing of land. So the scholars, they look at this from different perspectives, some scholars, they say, this is a blessing land. what that actually means is that this is a land which is very fertile. It grows anything very quickly. Some scholars they see the reason why this is called a blessed land is because of the prophets that were here and the prophets that are buried here and the pious people that are buried here, great men like Kimani

00:10:38--> 00:11:15

Salaam, who was a fleet of Allah is varied in fleets in its surrounding area. His wife sada is buried there is hockaday Solomon's buried there. jacoba li Salaam is buried there. According to many traditions, Yusuf Ali Salaam also made a request that after he passes away in Egypt, his body should be transported to beta democritus in this area that would Ali Salaam is buried in the greater Palestine area. So the Mona Lisa time is buried there. The mother of a Saudi Salaam Maria Molly saddam is very they're great companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam like some other facet of your loved one is buried there. After all, not with your loved one konkret vatan Mk this he

00:11:15--> 00:11:28

appointed are about about Devin samata de la one to be the judge in the room are a victim of this, who was also buried there. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day he was sitting with Shahada and also the last one and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam indicated to him

00:11:29--> 00:11:38

that soon, much of the upside would be conquered. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, after it is conquered, it is possible from your children.

00:11:39--> 00:12:15

The people will be imams there, meaning Allah subhana wa tada will appoint that from your children, the Imams of it and mark this. And that's why it should have been also the last one, he migrated to Palestine. And he lived there for almost 60 years of his life close to 60 years of his life should have been also the last one lived. So because of the great number of people that have lived there. This also blesses lead, but along with it being a blessing land, like I was saying earlier. One thing interesting is that through the history of this land, we have seen some of the greatest wars here. Some of the greatest sacrifices were made here from the time of Dali ceram, where he has made

00:12:15--> 00:12:54

to face dilute then beyond that, you know, throughout history to the time of Salahuddin a UB where 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of people were killed here. It says if Allah subhanho wa Taala has destined the highest rank for the people that live in Philistine, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He tests them with a level of suffering patients that no other human being has the ability for a loss of power, Allah subhanaw taala has destined for these people with such a rank that even their actions cannot take them. So lots of how to wattana he puts them through such challenges that history when we read about Philistine any forget about history this today, just this week itself, we are in

00:12:54--> 00:13:03

Ramadan, it is July, the eighth of July, right, the seventh eighth of July. And when we think about this day, somehow a lot. It makes us think

00:13:04--> 00:13:40

that's such a hot day, and we are in America, and we're fasting, and many of us are complaining about how long the faster and our thoughts are dry and all this other stuff. But you know, last night when I sat down for thought, tears came into my eyes because I thought to myself, Allahu Akbar, at least I have a thought on the table after 17 hours of fasting. And at least I can sit in a house that has air conditioning, at least I can hug my child after if thought and see with my wife and my parents and my brothers and sisters and have a thought with them. But what about the children of Palestine? Allah subhanho wa Taala has tested them to such a degree that they're not even having

00:13:40--> 00:14:16

thought with their families. Maybe just 24 hours ago they were sitting with their father and 24 hours later due to the bombs. Their father has lost a leg the mother must have lost a limb Someone must have passed away. They've lost their house. You know it really makes us think that we don't know what Allah subhanaw taala has liked about us that he is letting us live with such peace and tranquility. While other people in the road are being tested like this. We pray that Allah subhana wa tada gives us the trophies and ability to also match them and Mr. And your team. And Allah subhana wa tada allows us to be resurrected with them, for indeed we love them, and we pray for

00:14:16--> 00:14:57

them. And we pray that Allah subhanaw taala removed from them all of their oppression. My dear brothers and sisters, this is the month of Ramadan. And this is a very special month. Use your daughters to make to pray to Allah, that he frees the people of foods from repression. You're not I mean, raise your hands in front of you. And we ask that you protect the holy centuries. Yala protect much of the Allahumma Domaine a Shetty fain was much upset about it me Allah have mercy on the Muslims a Philistine yeah Allah have mercy upon them. And I mean, shower them with your mercy. Yeah Allah if there's any orphan and Philistine that is crying. Yeah, love. If there's anyone that is

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

hungry today. Raise your hand in front of you.

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

We asked that on our behalf Yala, give them tranquility, give them peace in our head on me on our on our behalf, we should that you not only me on our behalf, feed them as well. And along with our laws, please make a point to make a southern law and donation towards the cause of Philistine learn about the history of Philistine. Most of our kids don't even know what much of the upside is. We don't even know what the upside is. So learn about much of the upside. And as I had mentioned earlier, make dua for the people at every thought and every school and not only for them, but for all the people across the world that are being tested, that are facing oppression, keep them in your

00:15:37--> 00:15:45

laws as well prepared that Allah subhanaw taala grants all the profuse inability to act upon what has been said. What's that along with all that? I say that I'm humbled by it. He was happy
