Would you like to punish them now temporarily, and then it once and for all? Or would you choose for the punishment to last for ever?

00:00:12--> 00:01:16

It is very easy for us to become despondent when we open our phones. And we see what is happening to our brothers and sisters across the globe. It is very difficult for us to see them being murdered in their homes, then being slaughtered one after another. It is very difficult for us to see them bleeding in the stacker Ninho lagoon Tada. Sir, you'll Jessa DB salary will come when one part of us is bleeding, the rest of us bleeds to our hearts bleed with our brothers and sisters, as they are persecuted. Now, the thing is that we need to remember that Allah Rob bull is that you will Jellal is there and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most powerful force. So there is no body that is more

00:01:16--> 00:02:15

powerful than Allah horrible is that you will Jellal hence we say that we should raise our hands up to the heavens and beg of Allah Buddha is that you will general ask him say yeah, Allah our brothers and sisters are dying, and they are dying in your name. Yeah, Allah we asked you to help them we ask you to come to the aid. You see. There is a powerful weapon in the hands of the believer. And that is dua to Allah subhanahu wa taala first and foremost, you know, at times when we see that a problem has continued for decades on end, then we begin to think why is the help of Allah subhanaw taala not coming? And the reality is, the believer understands that this world is temporary. This world is

00:02:15--> 00:02:37

temporary and the everlasting the afterlife is everlasting. It will last forever and ever and ever and ever. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is not unaware of that which their persecutors our persecutors are doing well at x seven Allah Hello feelin man.

00:02:40--> 00:02:48

And don't think that Allah is unaware of that which the oppressors are doing in

00:02:49--> 00:03:51

your own Lea, who means judge philosophy in others or, indeed he is waiting, he is literally delaying them for the day that the eyes will stay in horror, the day that the eyes will stay in horror. My question to you, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam is if you had someone persecuting you day in, day out, and you knew that there is a day that will come where they will suffer forever and ever and ever. Would you like to punish them now temporarily? And then be it once and for all? Who would you choose for the punishment to last for? However, you see, someone might say, but that is injustice. This person persecuted someone for 20 years of his life for 50 years of his life. And

00:03:51--> 00:04:04

then he is being punished forever and ever. Why? Allah Allah believes that he will Jalil explains to us while I will do that holy man who won who are in

00:04:05--> 00:04:57

on on the Day of Judgment, the oppressors will beg Allah subhanahu wa taala Oh Allah, just return us to the dunya for a few moments so that we can change our stance so that we can be good people so that we can do good deeds and keep away from the evil and Allah who bullies that you will Jalil. In His infinite knowledge. He tells us that if they were to return to the world, they would have continued with their transgression, they would have continued with their criminality. So Allah subhanho wa Taala punishes them forever. So no Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, that their day is coming. Perhaps they may get away with it for some time, but Allah subhanahu wa tallas help is near.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

In the Laura le Yun li

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

Volume. Indeed, Allah gives the oppressor some time had either a father who loves him you've lit who until when he takes him You never let him go, he never let him go, then his chance is over. So whether that taking comes in this world or in the next Allah bull is that you will Jalil knows, but in the grand scheme of things

00:05:29--> 00:06:16

in and also Allah He Tari behold the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala is near. Imagine us standing before Allah, Allah Buddha is that you will Jelena and we think back to the dunya we think back to the transgressions and the oppressions. You know, once something is over, it's over. So, when a person gets to Allah subhanho wa taala. In retrospect, the dunya will look like a day or two days, or less than a day. Bala can let the student feel out the idea they're seeing on all May a woman who bow by own this early in

00:06:17--> 00:07:13

the game, they will be asked how long did you live? How many years did you live in the dunya they will say we lived a day or part of a day. You see in the grand scheme of things. When you look at it from the perspective of the earth era, when we are standing before Allah Arambula is that you will Jalan this dunya seems like nothing, a day or part of a day, a day or part of a day. So this is why we say that patience forbearance is of utmost importance dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. And then to find whatever way you can help them in whatever financial way that you can reach out to those who are being persecuted day in day out night in night out, reach out to them, make an effort, give

00:07:13--> 00:07:58

something to them for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and do it with sincerity because because you know what, when you click that button of donate, and you give for the sake of Allah subhanahu Attallah what matters is not the button that you clicked what matters is not the money that is getting to them. But first and foremost and most important, what matters is the condition of your heart. What did you give for? Did you give for them? Did you give for yourself or did you give solely for Allah Allah bull is that you will general hoping that one day I will find it before Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes, it is our compassion for our brothers and sisters that drives us to do this.

00:07:59--> 00:08:54

But ultimately, it is the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Taala that we want. You see. The other thing that we need to remember in all of this is that it doesn't mean that because we have the most sophisticated army on the planet against us that we are losers. Let me take you back to the wood and dilute what happened. What happened in the story of David and Goliath? Hola Hola. Buenas that he will Jalil tells us that once they had crossed the river, and so many of the army had left they drank they didn't pass the test. They were told to drink only one hand full of water and they drank more. Allahu Bucha is that you will Jalil says that when they saw the army in front of them, they

00:08:54--> 00:09:08

actually said that love that Elena, maybe dilute our Juno D. Today we have no might. We have no energy, we have no power to fight Giroud and his army.

00:09:10--> 00:09:24

And then came the response from those around them who knew what life was all about? They knew why they were standing there. And they said, Paul and Nadine I don't know Luna and I

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


00:09:31--> 00:09:36

call Lila let in while I'm at V Kathiawar be eaten.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

They said Those who knew that they were going to meet Allah subhana wa Taala who were they? They were people who knew that this life is not what matters right now. What matters is our meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to stand firm here today. They said because

00:10:00--> 00:10:55

Their minds were in the right place. The mindset was strong. They said, how many have a small army? How many small groups have destroyed large groups of people can mean a team kalila team level 10 Kathy rotten, be evening Allah with the permission of Allah subhanahu wa taala let's not forget here that perhaps we are looking at our numbers and thinking that we are nobody we are thinking that we will get slaughtered and massacred here. But let's not forget that Allah is with us. And this is what happened in the Battle of batteries. Well, Allah subhanahu wa Tada was with the muslimeen. So 313 was not a small number 313 was the most powerful, why because Allah was with them, and they

00:10:55--> 00:11:12

destroyed 1000s of people. You see, so what matters is where your hearts are where your allegiance lies. Is it with Allah Rubble, is that you will Jellal or is it with others? So Allah subhanahu wa taala tells us

00:11:15--> 00:11:20

And you see here

00:13:37--> 00:13:43

Do you think that Allah subhanahu wa taala will not help our brothers and sisters may he will most definitely help. And the help is coming. But my dear brothers and sisters in Islam just because something does not happen upon our timeline. It doesn't mean that it is not going to happen. We need to have patience.
