so nutty, walked off, BFA he laomi Dean, and my dogs I will see come one FCB Taka la heeta Allah, they know me a tequila. Yeah, Allahu Maharaja was a common hateful, I said, All praises due to Allah alone. And then we seek aid and assistance into him we turn both in repentance and for forgiveness, truly whom Allah subhana wa Taala has guided there is none who can misguide and he whom Allah has left to go astray, there is none who can guide and I've already said there is nothing worthy of worship, save Allah alone. And then Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is both his servant and His Messenger. Allah subhanaw taala has made it clear to us in his book, in his Quran,

00:03:20--> 00:03:27

but the attributes of oppressiveness of injustice of aggression

00:03:28--> 00:04:19

are acts in which he has warned the oppressor and the aggressor. Allah subhanaw taala has ordered all those who are capable to stand with those who have been oppressed, to remove the hardship from those who have been harmed to lighten the load from those who have been burdened Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the hood and what seven Allah wa feelin on May I'm at avani Moon in number you are here only oh I'm in touch call Sophie labsour. Allah Subhana Allah says and never think that God is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. Rather, he only delays them for a time when we when the eyes for a day when the eyes will stare in or when you see him lie or tell him perform was a that was a the

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

tomb how he says they will be racing ahead. Their heads will be raised up and yet their glances do not return back to them and their hearts shall be void on that day. Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the hula if you flip the volume when that indeed the unjust will never succeed. No matter how many rights they have taken away, no matter how much wealth they have stolen, no matter how many judgments they have falsified, the unjust and the oppressive can never succeed. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us against the shadow of injustice and oppression when he said

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

To us it took a woman for in a wonderful naturalmente ama, he said fear oppression, fear injustice, for indeed oppression shall be many forms on the Day of Judgment. The one act of oppression of injustice that we do or we enable, or we justified will give birth to many, many other forms of oppression, which we will have to answer for on the Day of Judgment. every act of oppression leads to more oppression leads to more evil leads to more darkness. Well, man, why do you mean I mean ansara and Allah says, In indeed the unjust shall have no helpers, they shall have no divine aid or help on the day when they are in need of divine aid and help. And for this reason, our Prophet

00:05:47--> 00:06:34

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered us to support the weak and the oppressed, in word and indeed, the Prophet salallahu audio send him said onto a hawk, monument, Alma, zoom, support your brother, be he oppressed or oppressive. The companion said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we understand supporting our brother when he was oppressed, but how do we support him if he is the oppressor? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and so we'll do another one, that you repel him away from his act of injustice, from his acts of oppression. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, I loosely moon teta, Kapha deema. He said, the blood of the Muslim is

00:06:34--> 00:07:15

equal. Just as it is important to support the oppressed person who is near to you, physically who was close to you, you must support the oppressed person who is far from you. Just as you support the oppressed, who is strong, you must support the oppressed who is weak. Just as you want to support the oppressed, who look like you who speak your language or from your country, you must support the oppressed who is different than you who has a different skin color who speaks a different language. Since I'm Muslim winter Kapha demount the blood of the Muslim is equal. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in another Hadith, or heritage Huckleberry Finn,

00:07:16--> 00:07:51

Huckleberry Finn, we're having a jolly thing. Three times he saw this, he said, I have declared a warning against the rights of to people who are weak to people who are vulnerable. And then he said, allow the team, the women and the orphans. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it clear to us the importance and the obligation of supporting everyone who is incapable of supporting themselves to defend the oppressed from the evil of the oppressor. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, I said,

00:07:52--> 00:08:36

well, Misaki and the one who is striving for the cause of the orphans, and of the weak Can you Mujahid Fie Sabina Allah, is like the one who is fighting for the sake of Allah. I'll call him Alain Simon. Or they're like the one who is fasting all day standing in prayer all nights, meaning if you were to fast all the day, and pray all of the nights, you would be only equal to the one who is striving on behalf of the orphan and on behalf of those who are the widows and the ones who are weak and in need and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Ma'am and Muslim, young, Muslim and female.

00:08:38--> 00:09:26

In touch interface interface v him in orderly Allahu Allahu female in your head movie no smarter is that there is no Muslim who betrays another Muslim, and a place in which their dignity is being erased. Meaning that you see the dignity of another Muslim being erased, being destroyed, their homes being burned, their children being orphaned, their women being widowed, you see their dignity being eradicated, and you are capable of helping them and yet to betray them. We betray them to protect our status, to protect our money, to fear our enemy. Illa Allah accept that God will betray that person in a time and in a place where they are in need of the aid of Allah subhanaw taala and

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while speaking about the righteous, about those who sacrifice their status, their wealth, their fame, their positions in aiding the oppressed, and those in need. He said mankind if you have a duty, whoever is in the aid of his brother, meaning whoever is in the aid of his brother in his poverty, or in their aid against aggression that they are facing, or in their aid against as refugees driven from their land. earned.

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

aid when they are wrongfully imprisoned or in their aid when they are ill in sick men can if you hide your tsp, whoever is in the aid of his brother can allow you Hagerty that God is indeed in their aid. God will be in your aid when you are ill. God will be in your aid when you are poor. God will be in your aid when you are faced with hardship and with calamity. Men can if you hide it, yes, he can. You hide it, whoever is in the aid of his brother in need, God will be in their aid when they are in when they are in need. And because of this, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to give preference to those who are vulnerable in society, choosing to meet them, integrate them

00:10:41--> 00:11:31

over the elites of a society, when you came to meet a new people, a new tribe, when he went to a new village, he said, I want a baby boy, I thought he can bring me the vulnerable amongst you. He didn't want to see the ones who are the doctors, the lawyers, the rich people. That was not his concern. If he wanted to understand who a people were, if he wanted to understand the moral fiber of the community. Let me see the ones who are vulnerable amongst you will only be the econ phenom tourism, una una bewafa Econ, we bring forward the vulnerable and the weak amongst you, because you are only supported by God. And you were only provided for by God because of the weak amongst you, meaning

00:11:31--> 00:12:09

because of your service for those who are weak amongst you because of your aid for those who are weak amongst you, because of your support for those who are weak amongst you. That is what gives you divine support from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so when our profits so and so our profits in the long run, even send them would always help would always aid would always be in the support of the oppressed in the heart and in whatever way he could. When he would walk the streets of Mecca, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could hear the screams of Beato the Ummah one oppressed and abused and enslaved and tortured when you walk by sumiya.

00:12:11--> 00:12:35

And he's on Omar who did not possess any power to help them no wealth to freedom, or armies to come in their aid, or ambassadors to advocate for them. What would he do? He had nothing but his words. So he used those words to comfort them. He used those words to help them endure. He would say to them, someone and I asked him,

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

be patient, or people or family have faith in them or I do commend Jenna, for indeed your appointed place shall be paradise.

00:12:47--> 00:12:52

And so my husband would die, and all he sallallahu Sallam could do is offer them

00:12:53--> 00:13:23

but he would support the oppressed with whatever Allah subhanaw taala put at his disposal. When I'm going to bin Salim came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man from cozaar. And his tribe was allied with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I tried those allied with Christ came and killed amongst them, the women and their children and he came to our Prophet sallallahu it will send them with his famous words of poetry, your being Meenakshi, then Mohammed has been

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

in operation as lefou can

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

walk through Jeddah was an analyst not seen on

00:13:35--> 00:14:19

the phone so Rasul Allah, He knows run EBITDA, what do I worry about the law yet to my data, he said, these beautiful words of poetry, oh, Lord, I call upon Mohammed, the birth of an oath between our fathers in his indeed, has deceived your oath, and they killed us. Rukh Khan was a Jetta, they killed us in our record, and in our schedules. And they thought that you will not aid anyone and they are more humiliated and less in numbers. So help us all messenger of Allah with a lasting help with an eternal help and call the servants of Allah and they will come to you a number. I wanted the profits a little lower, it was an MC. No, so we'll still try and they've been setting you have been

00:14:19--> 00:15:00

given support, or I'm not even selling and the profit called the believers and they brought an army to support them. Do you think the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be silent in the face of oppression? Do you think that he would see women killed or raped and children slaughtered and people killed in their prayers, and that he would not say anything? You think a prophet of God would remain silent in the face of injustice. Look at the example of Moosa audience. in nearly every story of Musa in the Quran is an example of him responding to injustice. When he goes and he finds all the people are feeding their animals and he says these two words

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

Unable to feed their animals. He says to the Mahabharat what is what is the problem? They say, we want to feed our animals, we bring them water and our father's an old man. So what does Moosa do? He gets up and he supports them and he helps them. He sees that they are being pushed out, but they can't even feed their animals. So he supports them. We see Mousavi ceremonies. And he says, poke a hole in the boat. And he tells him, I tell

00:15:30--> 00:15:46

Are you going to sink them and sink the people on the boat? Even though he gave a promise to include them that you wouldn't question him? When he sees an injustice he speaks. Every story look at every story of Musa filter Quran. This is a lecture on its own every story of Moses in responding to injustice.

00:15:47--> 00:15:58

And for this reason, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an essay, the Roman cannot willemijn Cuba, it was like Hello, and welcome me in the ipob admin ID. He said if the people see oppression,

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

if they see injustice, and they do not oppose it, then perhaps God will cover all of them in his punishment. Meaning if people see the oppression, they didn't do the oppression. They didn't. They were not the ones oppressing others, but they saw it. And they did not oppose it. They didn't fight it. They didn't speak out against it. They saw it in the silence. He said perhaps Allah will cover all of them in his punishment, meaning the oppressor and the one who is silent, would be equally punished.

00:16:36--> 00:16:56

We are aware of what's happening to our brothers and sisters in Palestine. And we saw that even as the ceasefire was announced, and we thought for a moment and Hamdulillah, maybe these children will stop dying, and these houses will stop being their graves collapsed upon them. This morning, we saw our brothers and sisters in Luxor being attacked and raided

00:16:57--> 00:17:10

our holiest place on one of the earliest days of the week. Just as they were desecrated in Ramadan, they continue to do so right now. And this is a step a bit of an intent to break the status quo and measure the Luxor

00:17:11--> 00:17:51

to remove the Muslims who live around it. Human rights groups have already called it an apartheid system, and occupation, and even an ethnic cleansing. This is exactly the definition of an ethnic cleansing to remove those of an ethnicity that Palestinians from the place that they live. We need to be aware of the history of Palestine, which most Muslims are not aware of, and the facts surrounding it, and at the very least, to use our voices to support them. It's incredibly important that we do so when our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives us this warning that if we see oppression, and we remain quiet, that we will be punished like the oppressor, because we are in fact

00:17:51--> 00:18:27

enabling the oppressor with our lack of interest, our lack of passion, our lack of wanting to know the facts, and our lack of wanting to speak up upon those who are incapable of speaking for themselves. And so this is why their profits on the wrong where do you send them set in the hat and the longer howdy of how our enemies will be eating us, feeding over us, like someone inviting others to feed from a from a place and the companion set to the Prophet? How will this be will we be fewer numbers that they are all attacking us? He said, No, you will be much in numbers, you'll be the most populated.

00:18:29--> 00:19:02

Well, that can come without saying but you weren't like the form on the sea. Meaning the form on the sea doesn't, doesn't go anywhere. It's taken by the water and the waves move it wherever it wants to go. It has no purpose, no decision, no direction over where it wants to go. It has no usefulness. People don't drink in the form of the water. They throw away the form the form makes it dirty. It has no usefulness or purpose for the people that we will be people who are not bringing benefits and our dogs are directionless.

00:19:03--> 00:19:38

And the companion said to the people that prophesized sell them. Why would this happen to us? He said because of a one on one will be in your heart which the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam called her the dunya worker are here to note that we will be struck in our hearts with love for the dunya and hatred of death. Meaning every time we love this world, our jobs, our status, more than we liked standing up for the abused in the oppressed. We encouraged harm against ourselves. We made our bloods cheap our blood cheap, not our enemies. We are the ones who made our blood cheap.

00:19:40--> 00:19:49

This is why the Prophet Allah Subhana Allah tells us normal and puts them in there how other people will see From where did this come from? From where did all of this evil come from?

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Good home in India for SQL. Allah tells us say it is from your own selves. It is from your own selves that these problems have emerged.

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

Walmart also about Walmart also about coming we'll see button for the Marchesa, but ad, we have one caffeine, Allah says whatever um disaster has stricken you, or strikes you, it's because of what your own hands have earned because of what you've done because of your priorities in your life because of where you placed your passions. We are on caffeine and God has already forgiven a lot.

00:20:24--> 00:20:45

But it's when we insist on this. We are the ones who create the conditions for oppression to spread between us. And Allah is helpful be with us when we follow the example of the profits when we speak out and work against oppression with whatever means we have at our disposal phone call, you have the list of all your local stuff but all in all for writing.

00:20:55--> 00:21:32

This will allow him to Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah He also heard me he or Manuela publish, Rafi somebody recently Emily Wagner, the opposite Emily Sonia Falcone, a question a lot of people are feeling when we see the images of our brothers and sisters in Palestine in many different places in the world, that are suffering, we think to ourselves, what can we do? What can we do? Look at the example of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who supported the press, with whatever means he had at his disposal, even if it was just speaking, then he spoke, even if it was just words, he put that forward, your dua is important. Your data is incredibly important. Never

00:21:32--> 00:22:15

think that it's not important. And so never give up to dwell. And keep making do art for those who are in need of our diet. And your time is important. your time and your effort and your passion is important. And we need to give our money as well to good causes. But one problem I see a lot of people do, they throw money, and then they ignore it. They give money to a cause. And then that's it, their do is cut off, their time is cut off. That's not going to help anyone that's at most a band aid solution. No, you need to educate yourself. You need to understand the facts. So that you're able to speak to the public, you're able to speak to communities, you're able to speak the

00:22:15--> 00:22:42

truth, because you have educated yourself. You've read books of history you've learned so that you can be able to respond and to speak the truth, that you keep working, even when things seem helpless. That's another issue. Sometimes people are saying, why haven't these politicians helped us? Why haven't these politicians said anything? Do you know why those politicians don't help you in times like this, because they know something about you. You get upset right now. And a week from now you forget all about it.

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

If you kept working on these issues consistently,

00:22:49--> 00:22:52

for years, then they wouldn't forget you.

00:22:53--> 00:22:59

I'm just saying this is the truth. And so you keep working, even when things seem helpless.

00:23:00--> 00:23:15

And you keep working for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah because Allah will reward you, whether we see the fruits in our lives or not, to not be overwhelmed. There's a lot of causes, Muslims in Palestine, Muslims Uighur Muslims in China, Muslims in Kashmir and in India.

00:23:17--> 00:23:30

We think of all these different problems that Muslims are facing, keep working, maybe pick one cause, and work on that cause as much as you can, on a consistent basis. And remember that Allah Subhana, Allah controls the world.

00:23:32--> 00:23:45

But we have a duty to show that we care and to work for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala whether our work produces anything or not to work for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala another issue that I want to mention

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

is that sometimes people take

00:23:52--> 00:23:57

their passion in this issue in these issues in the wrong way. What do I mean by this?

00:23:59--> 00:24:19

We are opposed to oppression and to injustice. We're not opposed to the Jewish people, because they're Jewish people, the profits from a long way and even send them in one instance, a Muslim man in Medina stole a shield from a Sahabi. And he blamed the Jewish men.

00:24:20--> 00:24:55

And the Prophet didn't know who's telling the truth. The Jewish man is saying I'm innocent, and the most Muslim men, he was really from the McAfee home but he was, you know, appears to be a Muslim man. He's saying no, the Jewish men stole it. The profit isn't always true. And the Muslim man has a big tribe and army and they're putting pressure on us who are Muslim allow them to defend the Muslim. And then Allah reveals verses in certain the set when I took one in higher ed in the house email that tells the Prophet don't advocate for the one who is deceiving, meaning the Jewish meaning that the Muslim men, so the Prophet defends the Jewish man against the Muslim men, and so many

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

people got upset of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but he stood up for what was true

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

He didn't oppose the Jewish man just because he's Jewish. And I've seen unfortunately some instances where Muslims are going even to Jewish neighborhoods screaming things that are, you know, not nice language that's not correct. We have to maintain our ethics, our Deen we say the truth. We say the Hulk, we defend the oppressed. We don't go beyond the ethics in the mannerisms of our Prophet sallallahu it is in them do things that are outside of the character of Rasul Allah, some allow to send them, right, we stand up for the truth and for justice, that means the truth and justice. And we're not going to achieve any help for the Palestinian people or for any oppressed people in the

00:25:41--> 00:25:45

world by doing things that are wrong, and doing things that are wrong.

00:25:46--> 00:26:21

And this is important for us to realize and to internalize within ourselves to stand up for the truth. Not to be anti semitic not to be hating towards anybody to stand up for the truth and to speak the truth and that's where Allah subhanho data will place his abode okay in being in LA, in Aloma, aikatsu salon and an OB GYN and also it was sitting with SEMA. A lot of study was sent Amanda said, you know, whenever, you know, have you been hammered alongside the IRA Mohammedan Maddock, or odakyu rune and abroad was only a year of the non orthodox warfare solely on a salad or cinnamon Do you mean he lay on the dean while he was having to put you in a period while Oh, man, I mean, well,
