we all remain
in pain over what is happening to our brothers and sisters in the USA.
As we see the world powers consolidates its power against the defenseless, and the imprisoned people of Gaza.
We see world leaders say that there is no limit to the amount of people that they're willing to see killed.
When we see these calamities before our own,
when we see the images of pain
when we see the bloodshed
when we see the lack of concern for our lives in the lives of our brothers and sisters,
it is imperative that we go back to Allah subhanaw taala into His messenger.
To see the truth of what we see today. We have to go back to Allah and His messenger, we have to go back to the book of Allah, and to the example of the life of his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And so when we see the images of them killing babies,
when we hear even that there are babies, who the death certificate for the child was issued before its birth certificate.
We can read in the Quran,
we can go back to the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.
We can find examples, like the example of Darwin,
when he is ordering the killing of babies,
worried that one of these babies might grow up and overtake him.
We can read in the Quran.
The example of his habit of dudes, the people of the trenches,
who built the trenches in the ditches and filled it with fire.
And with throw the mother and her baby in with it.
The story of
the killing of the Bibi's reminds us
that even those who are in power, that are in control
that have the armies
that have the wealth, that have the strength that are so ruthless, so cruel, that they are willing to kill babies. Even they cannot overpower ALLAH SubhanA wa Tang
and they cannot outrun the plan of Allah subhanho wa taala.
When a law has a plan, they're going to lose no matter what.
And that Allah subhanaw taala will support the believer in ways that the believer does not even think is possible.
So while Frauen kills the babies
to exterminate those who he fears may take away his power. Allah subhanaw taala causes it that the very baby who would grow up to overpower him
is raised inside of his own home.
It's a reminder to us that no matter how bleak the future looks like
no matter how cruel it might be, there is a bigger plan. And Allah subhanaw taala and his plan will outrace all of the planning that they have
will lahardee buena Allah Emery he will connect on Nasional.
Allah has full power and control over his affairs. And most of the men do not know
the story of us have enough to do the people of the ditch when they are rounded up by the king and told that unless they reject her belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala unless they believe in the king,
they will be thrown into the fire.
This reminds us
that our very belief in Allah subhana wa Tada. The fact that you believe in Allah azza wa jal
is enough for you to be an enemy.
Well man, or woman who may Allah, Allah Allah says
they had nothing against them except that they believed in Allah subhanaw taala
If necessitates that you worship Allah, and if it necessitates that you worship Allah necessitates that you center Allah in your life.
And that very belief undercuts the tyrants of the world.
So that very belief is always going to be fought.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us, of a mother with her baby. And she's hesitating,
when they are demanding that she renounced her belief in Allah, demanding that she believes in the king, she is hesitating
because of her baby. And because of her love for the baby.
So Allah subhanaw taala causes the baby to speak. And the baby says to her mother,
or mother, be patient,
or mother, be patient, for you are upon the truth.
And when she receives this miracle,
she throws herself and her baby into the fire.
The story reminds us of so much.
One is that in the moment of hardship, and in persecution,
in that moment of persecution, Allah subhanaw taala gives the believer a miracle.
And right now we're seeing the people of Gaza and we're wondering, the whole world is turned away from them, believe me, they are receiving miracles.
Believe me the water, that wouldn't be enough for one person is lasting dozens of people.
The bread, that wouldn't be enough for one child 20 People are eating from us. And Allah is giving them risk that you can't imagine in the hardship in the fire.
Allah subhanaw taala is giving the miracles, just like he gave this mother miracles.
And in the story, we learned something else, something very important
that we cannot judge the affairs, according to the skills of the dunya.
If we judge based on the skills of the dunya, who is the winner? When we look at the people of the ditch.
It would not be the believers who are thrown into the fire and are killed.
The winner would be the King who's on his throne at the beginning of the story.
And he's on his throne at the end of the story.
If we judge based on the skills of the dunya The winner is the king. He remains in power, he kills all those who disobey Him.
And today there are those
who look at the people of Gaza.
And they say the ones who are dropping the bombs are winning.
And the ones who are receiving the bombs are losing.
But Allah subhanaw taala says in the Latina effects on on me, Nina one more minute, from Melania to woo fella Hamada Bucha, handing them or whatever.
But those who have tortured the believing men and the believing women, and then have not repented, that indeed they will have the punishment of hell and the punishment of the burning fire.
And as for the believers,
the ones whom the onlookers would look at the believer and they would think they're losing
their think they lost. They're thrown into the fire. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Lilina M and wham it'll slide your hearts, love and Jeanette and tension, even Tatiana and how they're decomposable
that indeed those who have believed and done good deeds, they will have Janet's they will have the gardens.
Beneath it, the rivers are flowing.
Vatican fellows will cubby This is a great success. This is a great victory.
When you judge according to the era, when you have a broader, truer view of reality.
Then you realize that the mother and the baby were the winners, that they were the ones who had success
and those who are losing their lives today in the blesses land,
where their very existence is an act of rebellion. They are the winners. But we have to have a focus mentality.
Think of Hamza even I'm even more fond of Radi Allahu Allah killed in the Battle of Horford Did he see us now and become dominant?
Did he witness the conquest of Mecca? No. Was he victorious?
Did he lose or was he victorious? He is saying the Shahada. He is the master in paradise of all of the Shahadat everyone who's a shaheed.
Think of the family of the acid, the acid in his wife, Surya. Core torture of the first people to accept this land and they were tortured.
Did they see Islam?
Did they see the Muslims be anything other than a persecuted group? A handful of persecuted people? No. Did they see the Hendra to Medina? No. Did they see the conquest of Mecca? No. Did they see the Sahaba establish the greatest of civilizations across the world? No. Did they lose
the Prophet sallallahu or are they gonna send them as walking by and he hears their screams of torture.
And he tells them Sablon Yeah, and I acid fitting them over into coma Jana, be patient or family of the acid. Because you're appointed time is in paradise. You're appointed places paradise. This is victory.
Allah subhanaw taala reminds us at the same time, that the might in the power and the enjoyment
of those who are oppressive that they may enjoy in this world, it does not indicate that they are the winners
might does not equal rights.
The Latina Cafaro in them and normally the home hierarchy. Allah says let not those who this belief think that we are extending for them out of good.
Don't think we are extending your money, extending your power, extending your strength because we want good for you.
In the man whom Lila whom he is dad with. Allah says we're extending this for them, so that their sins increase whatever.
And they will have a humiliating punishment.
There might and their power and their strength and their money is extended for them so that their sins increase. And as their sins increase, so shall the punishment upon them increase.
What this world considers to be strength.
Allah subhanaw taala tells you is the cause of their destruction.
We have to have a bigger view,
one that extends beyond the dunya.
When we see babies being killed,
we remember that Allah subhanaw taala will never allow injustices to go on answered.
In the box shall be Kenisha deeds, the vengeance of your Lord is severe.
Allah subhanaw taala says what attacks have been the law how often and I'm the admin of Vani moon.
Never think that Allah is unaware of what the oppressors have done. In the room Leone in touch philosophy, he laughs
He's only delaying them for a day when their eyes will be staring in horror.
That day may be soon or it may be foreign.
Allah subhanaw taala.
Answered the DUA of Musa against for our
Musa made dua and Allah says I've accepted your DUA.
And even Kathina says the punishment on foot down,
took many days.
Didn't take one day. He didn't make dua and Allah says except to your DUA, and the next minute for that one is destroyed. No.
He made your eye against frown. And Allah said I accepted your DUA, and even cathedra said it took 40 years before the fall of
40 years from that day.
And between those days was persecution
between those days were people being killed. Between those days we know the story of the mother being thrown into the oil with her children.
These are lessons for us.
After the day of awkward when the believers were dealt a heavy blow
with an ad of the Sahaba were killed. And then when actually when the hypocrites start to say see you cannot defeat Quraysh They're too strong for us. That defeatist mentality that exists amongst some Muslims today. But Allah tells us no Quran
inium Cisco missile Komagata
if you have been
wounded then the opponent has been wounded as well. And he reminds us that the believer doesn't get automatic victories. You don't get victory after victory after victory No, sometimes you're gonna have losses
which is a yam whoo that wouldn't have been enough. These are the days we give to people in church. You may win one day you may lose one day. Why? Why do we have these losses? Well, yeah, and I'm Allahu Latina am and we're talking them in come shahada that Hola mi mi clear those who believe. And he may take martyrs Allahu Allah your hippo Vani me and Allah does not love those who are wrongdoing.
There's a lesson for us first lesson the antonym in Latina Amina that Allah made me clear those who believe.
Allah wants to reveal true believers.
And today we see true believers. Sometimes we think the example of the Sahaba is like a storybook. It's a fable. It's something we tell our kids we don't really believe it. How could these people actually have Eman like that? Well, then Allah subhanaw taala reveals for you true Ina.
You see a man in the Gaza, his entire family is killed. And the man says and hamdulillah he's content with the decree of Allah. So
you see a woman in Gaza, her children are killed. She's crying and she's hasn't handled it. And she's content with the decree of Allah.
Allah shows you real belief.
You see a little girl
we're building collapsed on her and they're digging her else.
And subhanAllah a miracle she's still alive. The digger out
and she's holding her hand her finger up to Allah and she's seeing a shadow and
repeating it over and over and over again. The little girl
is ready to meet Allah Subhana.
Allah is revealing for you true belief.
Well, for the Fatima Levine amicably inferior fillet, lemon Allahu Ladino Sadako while they are eliminated caffeine.
Allah says We have tried the people before you we gave tests to people before you and Allah will make evidence and clear those who are truthful to Allah azza wa jal, and he will make clear the liars of the blessings as we see the liars. We see though those who say no no, don't don't boycotts don't boycott Israel. What are you doing?
We see the lions who come and say no, no, don't protest.
We see those who use Islam to support this king or that King, this government or that government is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. To let you see who is truthful, and to let you see who is the liar?
Well, the animal lover Lydia Hemenway, tucking them in cultural Hydra, Allah will make clear those who believe and he will take shahada, he will take martyrs, it's a comfort for us. But we know that these children are entering paradise right away. We see the generosity and the mercy of Allah, even in the darkest of moments, we see the people of Gaza are gaining victory, even as they are being killed, that Allah subhanaw taala is giving them Shahada. And we remember one out of vocabulary on them and that indeed your Lord is not unjust to His servants.
But there's another point for us to think about.
Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, you would have the enamel in some sort of alliance would come with a bit academical that Oh, you who believe if you support Allah, if you support the cause of Allah, then Allah will support you, and plant your feet from.
If you show support for the cause of Allah, Allah will support you and grant you victory.
As long as we are opposing each other, or pressing each other, harming each other betraying one another, as long as we are abandoning the Quran, abandoning the misogyny, Stingy in our sadaqa as long as we are betraying the commandments of Allah azza wa jal, how do we expect support from Allah subhanaw taala? On what grounds? Can we expect Allah subhanaw taala to give us a support?
Yes, the personal sins that we do, could be the reason of calamities befalling the ummah.
In the same way that your DUA and your sadaqa and you're standing and speaking the truth, might be the cause for Allah subhanaw taala to give the Ummah victory.
Our personal sins could be the cause of the calamities. The story mentioned in the books, there's no chain of narration that might be one of these
Writing yet, some of the scholars mentioned the story that Musa alayhis salam and the people had a drought.
And so they called upon Allah they made their I O Allah and rained upon us.
And Allah said to Musa there is a man amongst who has been disobeying for 40 years
unless he leaves you I'm punishing all of us all the people are punished because of the one person
so Musa tells the people, whoever amongst you is this person who's been disobeying Allah for 40 years leave us, leave us we can get the rain.
And then lo and behold, the rain starts to come.
And Musa makes to her to Allah says, Oh Allah, the men never left. Nobody left. Whoever this person was they never left.
And Allah subhanaw taala says, This rain is because of my joy from his tilba he made repentance. So here's the rain.
So Musa tell me who this person is.
I congratulate him.
And Allah Subhana Allah says I hid his sin for 40 years you want me to expose them now that he may tell them?
What tuffeau ficlet and glad to see vanilla Dena vana morning concasseur. The scholars mentioned the story because the lesson of it is true. Allah subhanaw taala says fear a trial that does not afflict only those who have done evil.
If people in the OMA do evil, it might be enough for the entire Ummah to be afflicted, even if the entire Ummah has not done evil.
And so it's a reminder that through Toba Allah subhanaw taala can change the situation of the people
to the poster for window
smoking the Los Altos and Mr. La Rasulillah he was he was a happy woman whether
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
foretold for us
one of the realities that we have seen in the world
he said you check into the on a common human camera Tada okay that will Allah Satya. He said, Perhaps there will be a day that the nations will call one another against you. Just as diners invite one another to eat food. If you are a spread of food and you tell other people Hey, come coming to joy, join me and eat some of this food. But they will treat the Ummah like this, they will call each other and say hey, come and take some.
And this happened.
We know the Sykes picot agreement, where the English and the French sat down and had negotiations what part of the Ummah Are you going to take? What part of the Muslim lands are for you? What parts are for me and Russia was involved in Russia would get this area and the English would get this and the French would get that they sat down and they had negotiations about this.
And in fact, I saw something amazing, just a few weeks a week ago or so
there was a painting.
This is a real painting, I found it in the British Museum online, a painting
the English king, the French king, the Russian, one other idol, maybe the Austrian or something for sovereigns.
And they're standing in front of a turkey,
a turkey to be eaten. And the head of the turkey, you can message me I'll send you the actual photo, the head of the turkey is the Sultan, the Hadith of the Muslims, Ottoman some fun,
and each of them are commenting. One of them is saying I want to eat from this part. The other one saying I want to eat from that part. But having come like the prophets of Allah is gonna give us an example of what would happen. But Subhanallah they saw exactly that way the prophets of Allah as described. They saw it as though now's the time we're all going to take from this food and we're going to eat it.
The Companions ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Elena couldn't let him do anything else moolah. They said are we too few or messenger of Allah? On that day? Are we so small that we're being bullied by all these powers and all these nations? And the Prophet said well enter but entering your maiden kefir is a no another you're going to be many. It's gonna be a lot of you. When I couldn't have come with that because without a save but you are like the fool on the sea.
The form on the sea.
In effect, it's ineffective.
It's just goes wherever the wave takes it.
Well the ends and the law happens to do it or do we come in the habit?
That Allah will take fear of you out of the hearts of your enemies, and you will place in your hearts and when
the Companions asked the Prophet What is it when the Prophet used an old Arabic term?
They asked the Prophet what is it?
Called dunya wa Cara here to note, he said it is to love the dunya
and it is to hate death.
One of the reasons for the fall of this ummah, is too much love for the dunya. What derives the fat hypocrisy, fear people fear that losing the dunya
I say finally, Allah says Save on promises you poverty, when he makes you afraid.
When he makes you afraid of losing your money, when he makes you afraid of losing your status in your position,
we have broken fascia, then he commands you to do evil things. But the fear of losing the dunya is what leads you to do evil things.
We overcome that by turning to Allah subhanaw taala by having an athlete centric mentality to realize that this dunya is not worth that much.
That you know that sacrificing even your life, to defend the innocent. To uphold the truth becomes easy when you know that the dunya is not worth that much.
When you believe actually believe
that your risk is written by Allah and so that nobody can take it away from you. When you believe
that nothing can bring your death forward and nothing can delay it. When you actually believe this and that love of the dunya search to leave our hearts. Allah subhanaw taala will change our situation.
We have to embody this in our lives. Because I'm not gonna speak because I'm gonna lose my job.
Not fear of the dunya love of the dunya still in our hearts. See the truth. Be smart about how you say but see the truth.
