Those who follow the affairs of the Muslims.
We cannot avoid seeing the calamities befall the OMA
day after day, place after place, country after country. We see the bombs fall upon them, or the gas that suffocates them, we see the bloodshed, or the rights of theirs abused and stolen. And there's no doubt that this has arisen from a dehumanization
and a lack of respect for Muslims.
We're a day away from the five year anniversary of what happened to our brothers and sisters in Quebec City.
When they were killed inside of the masjid praying to Allah subhanho wa taala.
All of this happens in a backdrop of what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam predicted when he said you can own them and today it can come today I can lead to Allah Casati
he said that perhaps the nations will call one another against you. Just as diners invite each other to eat food. Meaning just as there is a plate of food at your disposal, and you call other people to share in it, that the Muslim ummah would be in such a place of weakness, that its enemies would call one another to take a share out of it.
The Companions asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our mentality nanomesh even the rasool Allah they said Will this be because we are few on that day or messenger of Allah? And the Prophet said Allah will end soon yo may even Kafeel will kinako author co author seal, he said no rather on that day you will be many there will be a lot of you will I cannot come without without a sale. But on that day, you will be like the phone above the sea.
Which is a powerful parable from our Prophet sallallahu wherever you send them. The form above the sea does not dictate the currents.
It doesn't dictate the flow of the river or the flow of the sea. It rides along
it has no say in where it's going. It just rides along
the sea is useful and the foam has lost its usefulness. He says you will be a lot and the form is a lot
but you will be like the foam upon the sea without its usefulness without its direction.
Well, NZ Anila Hammond pseudo Yeah, I do we come in Mahabharata income. While the fund Allah houfy Apollo become a Luan. He said and God will make reverence or respect

the Companions asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he rasool Allah when will melawan Aubusson Allah What is Allah and what does it mean? And the Prophet said her dunya baccarat here to note is that it is love for the dunya and hate of death a negative hate of death.
Have our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam redefinition to this word when
is a form of a definition of cowardice. The person loves the dunya. And they have an extreme unnatural
fear of death that causes them to then make decisions
in which they are exhibiting coward dice, afraid to sacrifice to a greater good,
afraid to sacrifice for a greater purpose.
And this is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam attributes to the standing of the OMA, as their enemies are inviting each other against them.
And so I thought in this chutzpah, it would be important
to reflect on the characteristic of bravery and courage.
Something that Allah subhanaw taala inspired in all of his prophets, and in the hearts of the companions, when they cause this OMA to rise, the characteristic of being brave and being courageous.
It is the ability of placing cowardice between your beneath your feets when you make your decisions. It's about having honor and courage and looking forward to what is between the hands of Allah subhanaw taala
Alkota Toshi, one of the great scholars of Islam, he said Adam and I could look at him and took some in, took several B 30. If the shujaa he said know that every dignity that is one is only one through the character of courage. And indeed cower dice cannot attain any form of dignity.
And for this reason, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not only encourage the Companions, but he would exhibit in front of them bravery and courage.
And as for the Allahu anhu, he said, Now a to Eduardo Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hadith we mentioned often, especially in Ramadan, we want people to donate, we mentioned this part of the Hadith. And I said I never saw anyone more generous than Rasul Allah so Allah whoever you send them, but what's more, because Subhana Allah, it's interesting. And another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeks refuge from algebra one well vocal, which is
stinginess and cower dice, because in order to be really generous, you have to be brave. So what's the next thing and it's for the Allahu Anhu says, Allah what our 80 to 100 Ash Janome Rasulullah sallallahu I never witnessed anyone with more courage or bravery than the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he had accidentally Rasul Allah is Allah wherever you send them, and he said finally and I never saw anyone more beautiful more excellent than Rasulullah sallallahu wherever you will send them
and In another Hadith audio of the Allahu and mentions
that connaitre said, Dalbello do
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said when I battle became fierce, we used to retreat around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send them as though he was a shield before them. He said, Allah Allah He la Catarina, Yom Abed. We all know Khuddam Elaine and mushy Khun Lu Helfer, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were holed up Rabona Illa do. He said that and I witnessed by Allah on the day of Vedda as the enemies move forward, we all retreated around the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he was the closest one amongst us to the enemy on that day, that he was the one who was the closest to the enemy.
And so the Allahu and mentions a day in Medina. He said, There was a day in Medina law called fuzzy Almudena to Leila that a sound was heard. And it caused all the people of Medina to be frazzled, to be afraid, what is the sound, foreign sound, a loud sound they hadn't heard. He said, for her agenda herself, the people left their homes towards that sound they want to hear what is the sound Where's it coming from, for stuff a better home Rasulullah sallallahu or the usnm and they found the prophets of Allah where he's coming from the direction of the sound, and he was on his horse, the horse of Abu Talhah and the horse had no saddle and the Prophet sallallahu where it was sent him had
his sword around his neck
panela and they saw the Prophet SAW Allah where Islam coming towards them seeing them Torah or wisdom Torah, don't be afraid, don't be afraid
and so on.
The Prophet sallallahu ala send them while the people hear the sound. And they're afraid. And they're thinking, what do we do? By the time they decide to go towards the sound? The Prophet SAW Allah, why do you say immediately when he heard this sound? What did he do? He grabbed the horse. It wasn't even his horse, he took the first horse, he found the horse of OpenHAB. And he didn't even have time to put the saddle. And he didn't even have time to sheath his sword. He threw the sword around his neck, he got on the horse without a saddle, and he went immediately towards the sound to find out what's happening. This is the bravery the courage of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, by the
time that people decided to go towards this sound to find out what it is the prophets already coming back, telling them, don't be afraid, don't be afraid, he's already seen what's happened. And our Prophet sallallahu Addyson would praise the courage of the companions, and strengthen them and eat them to be more courageous and more brave. For this reason, there are so many examples of the companions in the bravery that they exhibited. Just one of them. The example of Abdullah on the Macedon or the Allahu, and the great companion, that we all know the one who was blind, who came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe, Salam in the Prophet turned away from him. And Allah revealed the
verses of DeSoto Allah, this companion, how did he die? He died in the Battle of Little qadisiya.
he came forward and said, I want to fights. They said to him, Allah, Allah gave you an excuse, you don't need to fight. He said, No, I want to fight.
And so he came forward. And then he said to them, I want you to be the one who holds the flag, the flag bearer on that day. And as you know, the one who holds the flag in the middle of the battle is the one that they are aiming for the one they want to kill. Because if that person dies, and the flag falls, it causes disarray. And the entire army doesn't know which direction to turn.
He said, Give me the flag.
And they were hesitant. He said, listen, other people will flee from what they see. And I will not flee anything, what will make a person run away, they see something afraid, that makes them fear, they see something that makes them afraid. He said, I'm blind, I'm not gonna run. And it doesn't matter what what to see out there, I'm blind, I'm not gonna run away. So they gave him the flag. And he dug a hole in the battlefield. And he planted the flag and his feets in this hole. And he stood there. And at the end of the battle, they found so many Pierce's have the sword, and so many arrows in his body, and he never moved, and the flag stayed standing. And the Muslims, of course, were
victorious in that battle.
But brothers and sisters, courage is not only needed, Bravery is not only needed on the battlefield, it's needed in every facet of our lives. The one who wants to raise children needs to be courageous. Everyone's giving their children cell phones, everyone's giving their children access to YouTube, everyone's giving their children these things, you have to be courageous. You have to go against the you have to go against the stream of what everyone is doing. And say, I'm not going to do this, I'm not going to allow this. I'm going to hold out against this as much as I can.
We have to be courageous to give and I'll see how to others. Of course, when we given I'll see how we have to have wisdom, and a good demeanor and good disposition for sure. But just to approach someone even with the best manners, and give them advice and tell them you know what you're doing maybe is not right for you and maybe something that Allah has warned against. That takes courage and to accept no see how it takes courage to hear someone tried to correct you
may feel uncomfortable, may hurt your ego, but it takes courage to listen with an open mind. And think honestly about what people are saying.
And the one who teaches Islam needs to be courageous.
How many how often is what our religion preaches different than what the dominant society preaches? Something all the prophets went through
to preach Islam.
To discern truth from falsehood often requires courage, and bravery. And we see this even in the Imams who lived in the golden ages of Islam. What do we see in the examples of Imam Malik example Hanifa of Imam Muhammad, except that they had to say words of truth, while they're preaching and teaching Islam, even against threats, and imprisonment. And for this reason, Allah subhanaw taala shows us examples of the Prophet being brave, being courageous
Sometimes in the most difficult of circumstances and times, we see the example of Prophet Yusuf Ali is Sam
and the wife of Al Aziz, who is in a position of power over him. She's calling him towards sin, and he runs away, and he refuses from her. And he says in a little BS and MFI in Nola, if you have volume on that my Lord, meaning her husband, my master, he treated me well. You want me to be oppressive to him to be unjust to him.
He refutes what she is telling him to do. And then she lies and goes in front of the people. And she says magia murders that woman.
She tells her husband, what is the reward? What is the punishment? For the one who was intended evil for your family? Does he remain silent? And let her say what she says? No, though he is the servant.
And young, he responds back by the hero that's near MFC. No, she is the one who tried to seduce me.
We see prophets, New Hollywood cinema is small in number. Him and his followers are small in number. And the ones who are following Him are the weakest of society. The poor is the slaves. And he's building an ark in the deserts. So what are they doing? They're insulting him and mocking Him.
And He responds back to them in Tesaro Mina for in this huddle. minquan come at us head on. He said if you are mocking us, then we can mock you just the same. We will knock you just the same. You want to ridicule me for building a ship in the middle of the desert. Then I can ridicule you for worshipping idols and stones that cannot benefit you nor bring you harm. And you're praying to them and giving them your wealth. If you want to ridicule me, I can really kill you as well. In just a minute finanace crewmen come came at us Haroon, look at the courage that he brings forward. Look at profit tribe. Whether it's uncle son Mikayla, when me Zan in an ORAC can be hired, in the IRR can be
But he goes to the people, he tells them, don't decrease the measure. Don't cheat the people when you are buying and selling with them. Indeed, I see that you are rich, you are in prosperity. He doesn't say how can I talk about these sensitive financial matters? The way people are making money? People will be angry at me if I say this, no. He tells them what are you doing cheating the people and you're already rich too.
And we see many of these examples. The examples of the magicians who accepted Islam in the time of Musa alayhis salam and frown tries to engulf fear in their hearts. He says I will put the idea Kamado Joe community laugh while also leaving nakoma Marine. He doesn't just say I will kill you know he says I will cut off your rights. Your arm and your leg from opposite ends. And I will crucify you nail you to a tree until you bleed to death. The most gruesome forms of death
are Loulan federal
and MLB units will levy for Parana. They said we will never prefer you over what has come to us from the clear proofs. And over the one who has created us took the mentor club. Judge how you want to judge decree whatever you want to decree
called the man into card in the matter for the head the head higher to dunya judge whatever you want to judge you can only judge over this world.
This is courage. Going back to what the Prophet sallallahu sallam said and one is what you love the dunya so much you don't want to sacrifice it. They say forget about the dunya you want to judge the dunya you want to
condemn us to death in the dunya you can only just over the dunya Allah will judge over the next world
we see the courage in this of them. The courageousness of them. Look at our when he
insults the character of Musa for call letter who frown in Nila Avenue K Musa Miss hurrah in front of the people to the Allen says oh Musa I think that you are inflicted by magic. Magic has been done upon you.
Does Musa remain silent in the face of this Pharaoh? This king? This tyrant?
No, he responds back to him.
Nakoda Aminta Madonsela hola Isla Ragusa Mawashi when are the Vasayo were in Nila Nokia for their own matura
he tells him You already know that no one has sent down these miracles in these signs other than the Lord of the heavens and the earth as evidence you know for our what is true and what is false. And I think that you will be destroyed. You think that I'm infected?
Did with magic I think that you will be destroyed by Allah subhanaw taala. He responds back. He's not afraid, even though he is speaking to the king and the tyrant ahead of him. And that's why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, of letter Jihad Kennametal and discipline in Jaya, the best jihad is to say a word of truth in front of a tyrannical authority. And the Prophet also said, Well Can a moron say the truth even if it is bitter?
Now when we say to be courageous and brave,
we do not mean a lack of wisdom or a lack of strategy,
a lack of intellect or a lack of thought. Rather true courage needs to be leveled with intellect and wisdom. Courage is not a person feels angry. So they unleash that anger without even thinking about the ramifications of what they are doing. That's not courage. That's recklessness. That's foolishness. Courage is understanding the consequences of what you do, and understanding the importance of what you need to do.
And with wisdom choosing to do what is right in that moment.
are prophets allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men Kadima either who will call Allah infidel Who's the one who suppresses their anger while they're capable of acting upon it. This is a person that Allah subhanaw taala gives great reward da hula who Yokoyama T Isla Russa kala kala will call him as a leader of humanity on the day of judgment. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
would wear armor in his battle,
one of iron and one of chainmail. So Allah who had to send them does this mean he's not courageous?
No, he's courageous. But his courage is grounded in wisdom and intellect, and strategy as well. It's courage with wisdom and knowledge. When our prophets went from on his hedgerow from Mecca to Medina,
he didn't walk out in front of the people and say, by the way, I'm leaving.
He didn't do that. He had strategy. He had wisdom. He went in secrets. He had a path of how he was going to go from Mecca to Medina.
There's an example of what I would have thought were the along one
when he was performing Hajj once in Mecca,
and he heard a man saying, when Amata dies, we will choose whoever we want to be the Khalifa basically without doing Shura without having consultation. On what to became upset, and you want to stand on the mimbar and give a Horta denouncing what this person said.
But the other companions came to Oman and said, Omar, we're in Hajj.
Yes, America, Raja Mala Arab and the Arabs will hear you and the non Arabs will hear you people who don't have any context for what's being said. And they might misunderstand the words that you are saying. So they said wait until we go back to Medina then speak about this topic amongst the people who understand what's happening, rather than just saying this to people who don't properly know the context and will misunderstand all what you have said. So I'm gonna said, No suck to us adapt. What you have said is true.
And what you have said is true advice. And he remained silent until he went back to Medina, surrounded by the companions, and the sahaba. And then he began to speak about this topic. He didn't say, I'm courageous, I don't care who hears me I'll say whatever I want to say. No, he has wisdom. Who is listening? How are they listening? How do I give the right message in the right opportunity in the right way? And this is why one of the poet said about your publisher jaati Sajani Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, mahalo Thani. That intellect before courage is two forms of courage. Intellect comes first, and after it in second places courage for either homage to my early enough Sinhala
rotten medical terminology Alia equally McCarney. And so if the two of them have gathered in one free soul, then together he will reach the pinnacle of every place. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to include us with those who have courage and bravery, both with intellect and wisdom for who know Cody had our software development stuff through in order for Rocky.
Smell out hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he was early he was Sabi woman Wila.
How do we develop courage within ourselves?
Three different points that I will mention. The first is to know that benefits and harm is only in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala were animals law that can
be of their own
The Academy Joseba the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, know that what has afflicted you would never have avoided you. And whatever has avoided you would never have afflicted you well in the Nostromo sobre. And know that victory comes with perseverance, and know that relief comes with calamities and hardship comes with ease. Allah subhana data tells us in the Quran, Allah you see when Allah Hula, hula, hula Anna, where Allah, Allah Tala can
say never will be will we be struck except by that which Allah has decreed for us. He is our protector, and upon Allah let the believers rely.
And so the believer has to have this understanding this true belief in other in Destiny, that the decree is in the hands of Allah subhana wa Tada. He is the one who gives you your provisions, who gives you your job, he is the one who gives you money and gives you opportunity. He's the one who gives you benefit and gives you harm. And when you believe this truly, you free your heart to be courageous. And courage is necessary in every affair of our lives.
The one who is successful in religion has to be courageous. The one who's successful in business has to be courageous. The one who's successful in family life, in sports, in every aspect of life needs to have bravery and courage and to do what they think is right. Even if others are doing the opposite. They have the courage to be creative, to try a different approach. That's what gives them success.
The other point, to be courageous, particularly in a spiritual sense, is to think about death.
And to reflect over death, often
about Walker's to do cardio long war, and he said aerosol notes to have blackened higher. He said, strive towards death, you will be gifted life, which is a beautiful statement. When the person thinks about death. And they realize and they believe with certainty, they know they're going to die. And there's going to be an afterlife. And let me work towards it. When you strive towards your death, Allah subhanaw taala gifts your life you life in this world, your life has more meaning.
Because you know it's going to end at certain points. So you have goals and you have ambitions and you have drive and you're working towards your Acura. Allah makes your life have more batelco Allah gives you more peace and happiness with your family. Because you're working towards your death. He says, strive towards death, Allah will gift you with life, life in the afterlife, but also life in this life.
And this doesn't mean that we want to die or that we don't have any sense of fear of dying. But we have to be conscious of death, know that it will happen work towards it, and I'll be paralyzed because of it.
The next point?
The third point is to think positively
in general and positively about Allah subhanaw taala
when the Muslims marched into battle, and they're overwhelmed by the people, and they began to, to fear and saying, you know, we're small in number, we're too weak, we're too ill equipped.
Allah subhanaw taala
sends them protection.
he says to them in the medallic, mache Kuan Yew how with
Falletta half of whom will have been consumed. This is shape on he makes his Olia his supporters feel fear. Don't fear Him and rather fear me if you are believers, as long as you're doing what is correct. What is rights? What is ethical, don't fear the whispers of Shavon and this is why you see the ones who fall underneath are constantly afraid. Yes, una Coolessay. Denali him, how will I do
autonome Allah Allah subhanaw taala says they think every sound is against them. Every incident they think is their calamity. Why? Because they're thinking negatively about every scenario. They think this is our doom. This is our destruction.
The believer doesn't think like this, they think positively.
Even if bad things are happening. They think positively.
When the Muslim saw in the Battle of Zeb, they're coming towards them one of the believers say Nakane Allahu wa sono God is messenger have promised us the truth. They said we're gonna have victory, here's the army so that we can have victory and one of the disbelievers say the Muslims and the Prophet are never going to go back home. They're thinking negatively about every scenario. So let's think good about Allah subhanaw taala think positively no matter the circumstances we're in Allah subhanaw taala will always give the believer away out in the Lahoma it was
yeah, you're Latina um, and he was sending what Sima? Alma said he was sending out a CD you know, whenever you know, have you been a Muhammad Allah, Allah Allah Muhammad Mata
