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

Allah subhanho wa Taala sent our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to the earth,

00:00:09--> 00:00:13

according to a hadith after looking to,

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

after looking to the inhabitants of the earth, and He despised them, except for Boko Haram in Kitab, except for a small amount of the People of the Book, who are still upon the truth,

00:00:29--> 00:00:33

the people of the world were engulfed in disbelief

00:00:34--> 00:00:39

in fights in division, and wars,

00:00:40--> 00:00:42

the strong would consume the weak

00:00:44--> 00:00:56

and the kings would take from those upon whom they ruled. The knowledgeable would manipulate the ignorance and the rich would exploit the poor.

00:00:58--> 00:01:15

In this scenario, Allah subhanaw taala sent our Prophet Rahmatullah mean as a mercy to humanity to rectify the people to purify their souls to reconcile their problems.

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

Through our prophets Allahu

00:01:20--> 00:01:31

Allah azza wa jal ended the Tribal Wars that existed between people and the argumentation that fragmented them and fractured them.

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

And whatever hatred existed between them in the time of Jaya Helia

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

and whatever riba usury

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

was used to exploit the people.

00:01:47--> 00:01:55

Whatever power dynamics allow the powerful to harm the weak. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought an end to it.

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

And this ushered in an era of unity amongst the Muslims.

00:02:02--> 00:02:05

People who turned to many cuddlers

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

turn to one,

00:02:08--> 00:02:15

for when you watch, Mr. Hara, Allah says turn towards master that Hara.

00:02:17--> 00:02:35

Those who followed different scriptures or no scripture, Allah sent them one book to unite them when they can Kitab it to the end. And equally che. Allah said, We have sent down this book upon you as a clarification for all things.

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

After the people have been so divided, Allah united them upon one book,

00:02:44--> 00:03:07

upon one prophet, one constitution, he united versus Allah, the rituals, there's a cap, even how they eat and dress Allah subhanaw taala united them upon the same mannerisms, not the same dress but the same ethics of how we dress, the same ethics of how we eat.

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

Allah united the old mafia had been so divided

00:03:15--> 00:03:24

and he said, What a left Verbena call will be him. Low and Dr. Murphy will be Jamie and Matt I left arena, man left arena.

00:03:26--> 00:03:32

Allah says he brought the hearts together. He brought together the hearts, the hearts of the Quraishi

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

and now also the Hazaragi.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

He brought together the hearts of the habit she

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

and the fatty see in the room.

00:03:43--> 00:03:58

The different nationalities ethnicities Allah brought their hearts together. Lo and fill out the Jamia Allah tells our Prophet Sall Allahu Allah you send them, have you spent all that is on this earth?

00:03:59--> 00:04:16

How do you spend all the money on this earth, mountains of goals, to bring these hearts together after they fought bitterly, generation after generation inheriting hatred, from Father upon father upon father to fight this tribe in that tribe?

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

Allah says no insect enough,

00:04:21--> 00:04:33

lifted in him. If you spend every dollar on this earth, you would not have brought his hearts together with that can Allah Allah verbena, but it was Allah subhanaw taala who brought the hearts together.

00:04:36--> 00:04:53

Suddenly the wealthy is giving the cat to the poor. Suddenly the powerful has responsibility to protect the weak. Suddenly the knowledgeable has responsibility to inform and to teach the ignorant. Suddenly they became brothers.

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

Until our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praise them

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

And he said, Listen, we need a feed forward to him. What's Romney him What are out to him? Kathleen Jeff Hill wagons. He said the example of the believers in their mutual love and their mutual compassion and their mutual affection is that they are like a single body.

00:05:21--> 00:05:27

They do like a single body, no matter your skin color, your ethnicity, your one body.

00:05:29--> 00:05:44

If you are the Sydney indo European or Persian or Arab, you are one body, you complete each other, you support each other. The Prophet said if one part of the body is suffering than the entire body suffers.

00:05:45--> 00:05:49

The entire body suffers with sleeplessness, and fever.

00:05:51--> 00:06:17

And Allah subhanaw taala spoke to this ummah. And he reminded us that yes, you are human beings, you are going to differ over matters, you are going to disagree over issues. This happens to human beings. But when it happens, go back to Allah has given you Fintan as I'm fishing for do it Allah who was in control taught me you want to be late.

00:06:19--> 00:06:27

If you disunite over something, if you argue about something, then go back to Allah and to his messenger if you truly believe in Allah and in the last day

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

and Allah warned us

00:06:33--> 00:06:53

of being disunited, and he warned us of dividing after Allah has unified us, while tossin will be Hamdulillah he Jamia hold on to the rope of Allah all together, hold firmly to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala when after for Rocco and do not become divided.

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

Hold on to the rope of Allah.

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

Don't hold on to the rope of your race,

00:07:03--> 00:07:26

to the rope of your tribe, to the rope of your culture, to the rope of your financial interests, to the rope of nationalism. No, hold on to the rope of Allah wa Tosi movie hamdulillah altogether all of you hold on to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala the rope of Allah is greater than all of this.

00:07:27--> 00:08:04

By the way, even the imagery holding on all of you holding on to the rope of Allah because what is gonna pull us up? Allah is gonna pull us up all these other ropes. They're gonna take you nowhere. Hold on to the rope of Allah with Kudo. nettement Allah hear it from with Quinton, Ida and for elephant in Ecuador. And remember the blessing of Allah when you were enemies of each other, and Allah brought your hearts together. For us were to be in their mercy here. And you became by the blessing of Allah brothers. He made you brothers.

00:08:07--> 00:08:14

Allah is reminding the Sahaba what was life like when you were not holding on to the rope of Allah.

00:08:16--> 00:08:49

Life was full of divisions and Tribal Wars and enemies to one another. But Allah brought your hearts together. Allah made you brothers. Welcome to my eyelash, 14 minute nerdy falcoda Camilla and Allah says you were on the edge of a pit of fire. And Allah saves you from it. Had Islam not come at the rope of Allah Anna come and you have gone to it and united twit you are on the pigs on the edge of a pit of fire, you're about to fall into the fire.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

You're about to fall into destruction.

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

You You're almost there, but Allah saved you.

00:08:59--> 00:09:04

So hold on to the rope of Allah and Don't dis unite, you're gonna head back to that same place.

00:09:06--> 00:09:16

You'll be back with hatred to each other. You'll be back with an enmity to one another. You'll be back with suspicion of each other. It will lead you right back to that pit of fire.

00:09:19--> 00:09:36

Well, that's a coulomb Kadena to follow Rocco Walker telephone number and the manager who will begin at what will happen after him. Allah subhanaw taala says don't be like the people who divided and deferred after the clear proofs came to them.

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

They are the people will have

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

a great punishment.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

Whether it's

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

for tests or whatever.

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

Allah says don't dispute

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

don't turn away from each other. Because by necessity if you do so for attention we

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

You will fail

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

will come and your strengths will go away from you.

00:10:07--> 00:10:13

All of this comes the failure and the loss of your strength comes from your disunity.

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

Look at how much our Shaddai

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

can make commands us tonight

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

how much does our Shediac command us to gather together?

00:10:29--> 00:10:34

Allah subhanaw taala established Salah in Jana in congregation.

00:10:36--> 00:10:45

So Latin Juma has to be in congregation so that's you know either has to be in congregation is to squat has to be in congregation.

00:10:46--> 00:10:55

In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man in philosophy, what are people doing? led to call him to come up his feet.

00:10:56--> 00:11:06

In the water, the step was to save on the profits on the low value sense that there's no three people in a village, or even in bed or in the deserts.

00:11:09--> 00:11:15

That dinner established prayer between each other with each other together in Gemini, you don't establish your prayer.

00:11:18--> 00:11:24

Except the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Shavon has overcome chiffon has overcome these people.

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

And then he said finally come

00:11:28--> 00:11:29

upon us to pray.

00:11:30--> 00:11:34

For indeed the wolf will eat the sheep that is isolated.

00:11:35--> 00:11:39

The sheep that is loaned by itself that's the one that will for it.

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:11:45--> 00:11:45

Man, that's

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

why Morocco.

00:11:51--> 00:11:56

Back let's have one row come join me on another project in whiteheads. Redo a year subclass.

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

A Ufa Gemma

00:12:01--> 00:12:07

Musa the Prophet said if a man if someone comes to you, and you agree on one me you have one me one leader.

00:12:08--> 00:12:26

And this person wants to split you or to cause parties in the community. The Prophet says kill this person. That's how important unity is for the Muslims. The prophets of Allah, Allah, the Hand of Allah is in the congregation in the gym, ah,

00:12:27--> 00:12:37

the Prophet sallallahu already instead of even told us eat together, don't eat by yourself. Go eat together, why there's more Baraka in your food when you eat in a gathering.

00:12:38--> 00:12:44

If that's true about your food, what does it mean that all matters that are even more important

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

matters that are of greater purposes and have greater goals.

00:12:50--> 00:12:56

Allah subhanaw taala tells you in the Houston Metro Cameroon matawa one or a book in fact,

00:12:59--> 00:13:12

when they had the Metro Cameroon Mattawa one out of Brooklyn, Fatah coin. Allah says indeed this is your religion, the one religion and I am your Lord, so worship Me.

00:13:13--> 00:13:16

And in the other verse, I am your Lord so fear me.

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

You have one Lord,

00:13:22--> 00:13:39

one religion, you have to be one OMA, you must be one Oma. Meaning the way that you conceive of yourself, you see yourself your guiding values and principle has to be based on the old map of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:13:41--> 00:13:49

When our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood in front of the largest gatherings of the Muslim that had ever occurred up to that point in

00:13:50--> 00:13:55

his farewell for Tibet, and 100,000, Muslims gathered

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

to hear him speak

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

during Hajj,

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

and the Prophet looks at this community.

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

And they have the Arabs and the non Arabs,

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

the Romans

00:14:12--> 00:14:23

and the Persians. And he looks and he sees though this one is black, and this one is brown, and this one is white. And he sees the rich and he sees the poor and they all gather together.

00:14:24--> 00:14:29

And the prophet sees these people, but they have become one. One owner

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

on one path,

00:14:33--> 00:14:39

glorifying one Lord, making a walk around one house, turning to one thing,

00:14:41--> 00:14:47

doing the same rituals, wearing the same haram, following the same Sharia.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

Now prophets of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Yeah, uns old people in northern Beckham wagged your Lord is one way or the other.

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

Oh come wide and your father is one

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

alert for the ROV and attorney.

00:15:08--> 00:15:21

Well, Jimmy and Anna hobby. There is no virtue for an Arab oh very non Arab, or free non Arab over an era. Well early on is what well yes within Allah and not for

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

the whites over the black or the black over the weight

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

in the taqwa except in your fear of Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:31--> 00:15:34

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meet this our base of being

00:15:35--> 00:15:39

the basis of our community, and our Ummah lived on such a basis.

00:15:40--> 00:15:47

You would see people in our own mind move from one part of the land to another part of the land ruled by one Khalifa. One Amir

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

ruling them with the same book and Sunnah

00:15:53--> 00:15:54

with the same Quran and Sunnah.

00:15:56--> 00:16:03

And yes, there's exceptions in history. Yes, history is complex at times. But this narrative is generally true.

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

The Muslims were generally united.

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

And they understood more importantly, the importance of being united.

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

Until colonialism destroyed this unity.

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

And it worked to plant hatred in the hearts of Muslims,

00:16:23--> 00:16:33

to plant divisions between Muslims, and the Muslims themselves began to look to Western ideologies for guidance on how to live

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

they forgot what Allah subhanaw taala commanded upon them.

00:16:39--> 00:16:46

They didn't look for the path forward through the lens of the Quran and Sunnah. They said, No, let's look at what other people are doing.

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

We talked today about what's happening in Gaza.

00:16:54--> 00:16:59

But it's important to understand to understand what's happening today, you have to understand what happened yesterday.

00:17:01--> 00:17:04

If understand what happened, not just in 1948

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

when the Palestinians were ethnically cleansed, but go back to 1917,

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

the Balfour Declaration

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

we're bringing said we are giving this land

00:17:18--> 00:17:24

to the Jewish people, even though the land was 96% Palestinian most of the Muslim

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

what happened in 1917?

00:17:31--> 00:17:37

And it makes you wonder, How and why did the British colonize Palestine to begin with?

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

What happened in 1917.

00:17:42--> 00:17:43

In the years before it,

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

enough of the Muslims fell.

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

The Ottoman Empire fell.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

They easily conquered the lands of the Muslims, including Palestine.

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

And the British had the Arabs revolt against the Ottoman Empire.

00:18:05--> 00:18:17

Those of you who've read history, you know, should have seen it, but it they went to him. He was the Sharif of Mecca. They said we will give you money we will give you support if you revolt against the Ottomans.

00:18:19--> 00:18:44

And so he did. And they promised him. They said we will give you a kingdom of Arabia, all of Arabia, and all of his Sham, including Philistine and Iraq. All of this will be your empire. And we know today with 100% certainty, because the documents are feared. At the same time they were promising it to him. They were promising it to design this.

00:18:46--> 00:18:50

They never intended for a single day to honor the promise.

00:18:51--> 00:19:00

But he went and he fought against the Ottomans. And it was one of the major reasons why the Ottoman Empire fell as easily as it felt.

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

And of course, he had a terrible end to his life.

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

But the historians say you can't put all the blame on him.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

You can't blame everything on him. Why?

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

They said if Soufan Abdel Hamid,

00:19:19--> 00:19:23

who is essentially the last Khalifa if he was not deposed,

00:19:24--> 00:19:49

and if Turkish nationalism did not start to dominate Turkey, so the Young Turks movement in the Ottoman Empire said we are moved by Turkish nationalism what we care about are the Turkish people. So in the Arab sea, the Turks only care about the Turks, and they said we have to only care about the Arabs. Once we adopted the mentality of nationalism, everyone turns on each other.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

This is exactly throwing away the rope of Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

This is everyone throwing away the rope of Allah and everyone pulling on the rope of race and nationality.

00:20:02--> 00:20:22

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Manohar Raja Ana Paula author aka Jana suffered Mata Mita Jade here, the one who chose defects from the obedience of the Emir and they are separated from the main body of the Muslims. They have died the death of JD, the Prophet said the one who carries the banner

00:20:23--> 00:20:39

that people are blind to they're fighting for a cause they don't even understand. Or he calls for his tribe, for his bloodline for his kith and kin. He's fighting for nationality for trying for blood. He says this person has died will die the death of Jania.

00:20:40--> 00:20:52

This is what destroyed the OMA colonial powers taking over our lands in greening in us the ideas of nationalism, cutting up the lands of the Muslims into hundreds of lines of borders.

00:20:53--> 00:21:16

Muslims starting to fight each other, be racist to each other, even inside their own borders within their own countries. They raise the flags of Jeconiah sometimes two groups of Muslims in one country fighting against each other, and they have the same grandfathers six generations up. This is Jackie Leah put into our hearts. This is throwing away the rocks of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:21:17--> 00:21:19

What if shallow waters

00:21:20--> 00:21:25

do not just unite or you will fail? And your strength will go away from you?

00:21:26--> 00:21:41

And look at what they do for themselves. What is America, America is a project of unity. It's uniting all the states into a confederation into the United States.

00:21:42--> 00:22:12

Looking at Europe with their different languages and cultures and histories and histories of fighting each other. What is Europe, they make the European Union. They all have one currency, the currency rises, they all profit. If it falls, they all suffer together. You go into Europe, you go from one country to another they don't even ask you for your passport. It's as if Europe is one country. They are working to unite each other and we Muslims we work so often to dis unite.

00:22:13--> 00:22:16

We look so often to look for reasons to this unite with each other.

00:22:18--> 00:22:25

Unity is not nephila Unity is not a good thing to do as a Muslim, it is what

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

it is an obligation upon the Muslims. I will allow sorbet Kumasi

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

tells this to the Muslims,

00:22:36--> 00:22:50

he says when you suffered your loss, and then you start to say that why did this happen? But who am in it and for Seco Allah says this came from you. You're the ones who disunited at the beginning of the battle. You're the ones who disunited during the battle.

00:22:51--> 00:22:57

This is the reason why you lose. You're not doing the whack job of uniting.

00:22:59--> 00:23:03

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Are you a nurse? And are they

00:23:04--> 00:23:19

all people it is obligatory upon you to be an HMI to be in a congregation to be united together? Well, yeah, from what for call, and I warn you against this united and the prophets of Allah who said this three times over.

00:23:20--> 00:23:51

We have to establish unity to the extent of our abilities. Too often we are looking for reasons to dis unite. Yes, there are people who have very deviated ideas of our religion outside of a man who muddied the bottle, raw Bharara, people who have very, you know, wrong ideas about the principles of the religion. Yes, those strong deviations that take them outside of the borders of the deen. We don't unite with them.

00:23:52--> 00:23:55

But we sometimes dis unite over matters of

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

disagreements and filled

00:23:59--> 00:24:07

with straw scholars of our faith, great scholars of our faith disagreed and all be like, I can't pray with this person. He puts his hands here when he's praying rather than here.

00:24:09--> 00:24:17

We have this mentality we're looking for reasons to dis unite. We have a disagreement over something. You think it's been that he thinks it's not?

00:24:19--> 00:24:29

Listen, you can think it's better you can refute him for thinking for them, believing if not better, you can refute him for it. But you cannot dis unite because he's your brother in Islam.

00:24:30--> 00:24:35

This is a Muslim who believes in the Quran who believes in the Sunnah who respects the Sahaba who reviews the salah.

00:24:38--> 00:24:39

Here's Rachel for you.

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

If he's oppressed you have to support him.

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

If he dies you have to make to art for him.

00:24:47--> 00:24:53
