00:00:00--> 00:00:01

Allah subhanaw taala Allah

00:00:03--> 00:00:06

has made clear in his book

00:00:08--> 00:00:10

that those who are oppressive

00:00:12--> 00:00:40

will face his judgement SubhanaHu wa Tada what? Seven? Seven Allah have off metal Vani moon. Allah says Never think that Allah is unaware of what the oppressive people do. In them Are you a hero whom Leone in touch, hustle Fie, hit absorb. Rather he only delays them for a day in which their eyes will be staring in horror movies.

00:00:41--> 00:00:46

Or you will see him lie or do at him perform it at home.

00:00:47--> 00:00:56

racing ahead, Allah describes them, their heads will be raised up and their glands will not come back to them and their hearts will be void.

00:00:57--> 00:01:08

Allah tells us in a hola Avani moon, that indeed the one that is unjust, that is oppressive, will never succeed.

00:01:09--> 00:01:24

No matter how many rights they have taken, or wealth they have stolen, or land they have the serfs. The oppressive and the unjust can never be successful. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:25--> 00:01:52

warning us about injustices. He tells us a tupple of voting for interval, volume at home and piano. He said Fear of oppression because oppression will be many forms on the Day of Judgment. Every oppression every volume leads to more than more oppression more evil, until eventually Romans darkness that the person is in.

00:01:54--> 00:01:58

And our Prophet sallallahu or you send them reminds us as well.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

Albus, the moon teta Kapha Dima,

00:02:03--> 00:02:12

the blood of the Muslims equal just as it is important to to support the oppressed person near you, or close to you.

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

The Muslim who is far away from you, also deserves your supports

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

we gathered today

00:02:23--> 00:02:31

and it is a time of immense and unprecedented pain and grief, especially in our ummah.

00:02:33--> 00:02:45

This pain and grief and frustration and helplessness that we feel right now, we probably haven't felt in an entire generation, if not more.

00:02:47--> 00:02:53

We feel helpless, unable to support and to help our brothers and sisters in Palestine

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

who have been left abandoned by the entire world.

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells us

00:03:03--> 00:03:08

method and we need for you to wire to him what's wrong me him will throw out fluffy him can method is just said that.

00:03:09--> 00:03:15

He said the example of the believers in their mutual love, in their affection.

00:03:17--> 00:03:24

In their feeling of fellowship between each other is the example of being one body.

00:03:25--> 00:03:35

When the limbs of the body aches and pain. The rest of the body feels that pain and suffers sleeplessness and fever because of it.

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

If you are a true believer, you have been feeling ill.

00:03:43--> 00:03:53

If you are a true believer, you've been feeling like you are in a spiritual fever due to what is happening to our brothers and our sisters with no way to help them or aid them.

00:03:55--> 00:04:04

We love our Palestinian brothers and sisters and their pain, and their anguish is our pain and our anchors.

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

We've also felt upset

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

and ill

00:04:11--> 00:04:17

at the double standards of the world powers including that of our own country.

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

We have felt sickened

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

by their double standards,

00:04:24--> 00:04:28

their hypocrisy and their selective outrage.

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

This is a country which on the one hand

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

seeks to rectify to find reconciliation for all the injustices perpetrated against the indigenous people of this land, who are killed and ethnically cleansed and experienced the genocide and driven from their homes and have their land stolen. On one hand, they are seeking reconciliation with the indigent

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

In this people of this country,

00:05:03--> 00:05:07

and on the other hand, they're throwing our brothers and sisters in Palestine under the bus.

00:05:09--> 00:05:15

The same country that is sending billions of dollars to Ukraine,

00:05:16--> 00:05:28

so that they can fight against another country, which is annexing their land, which does not even see Ukrainians as being a nation or a people.

00:05:30--> 00:05:36

And on the other hand, they support the annexation of Palestinian land, by force,

00:05:37--> 00:05:48

by a force that does not even see the Palestinian people as being a real people. They deny the existence of there even being something called a Palestinian people.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

We see the sheer hypocrisy

00:05:54--> 00:06:27

of countries like France, and the United Kingdom, who present themselves as defenders of free speech. We must defend free speech no matter what, even when our profit is insulted. We must defend free speech. Even when Muslims are dehumanized, we have to defend free speech, the same countries are now seeking to criminalize any protest in support of the Palestinian people, even carrying the Palestinian flag.

00:06:29--> 00:06:33

We see their collective their selective outrage, outrage.

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

We see their selective outrage

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

when they show up with all detail, the suffering and the hurts of Israelis.

00:06:48--> 00:06:52

Yet they never mentioned the overwhelming suffering of Palestinians.

00:06:54--> 00:07:00

Not just their suffering in the span of one day, but they're suffering for decades upon decades.

00:07:01--> 00:07:09

And they tell you this is all because of Hamas in order to justify war crimes that are happening presently,

00:07:10--> 00:07:27

like the carpet bombing of entire neighborhoods in Gaza, like dropping white phosphorus, which burns people's skin and has very lasting effects. And it is a war crime to drop it in highly populated areas. And they are doing just that.

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

But they don't tell you

00:07:32--> 00:07:40

about the settler pogroms happening in the West Bank routinely where there is no Hannah's in the West Bank.

00:07:41--> 00:07:48

And the settler groups will kill Palestinians just today. They shot an unarmed Palestinian men.

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

Point blank for no reason.

00:07:52--> 00:08:02

They don't talk about how the West Bank is broken up into ghettos, where they control even the sidewalk that a Palestinian can walk on or not be allowed to walk on.

00:08:03--> 00:08:25

They don't tell you about the 1000s of Palestinians, including children that are detained under military order without charge. held for decades upon decades. There's no Hamas in the West Bank. Yet they will brazenly tell you. The only reason Palestinians suffer is because of Hamas.

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

They don't tell you about the blockading of Azusa,

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

where relief and aid efforts have been shot at

00:08:34--> 00:08:40

were water and food that belongs to the people of Gaza is diverted away to their communities.

00:08:42--> 00:08:48

They don't tell you that the majority of us over 50% More than a million people in Gaza are children.

00:08:50--> 00:08:58

And they don't tell you the reason that most of us are children is because the life expectancy is so low because they are denied food and water

00:09:00--> 00:09:01

and medical aid.

00:09:04--> 00:09:24

If we say listen, we agree with you. killing children is horrible. We should condemn anyone who kills children, including when Palestinian children are detained indefinitely or killed or even burned alive inside of their homes. Suddenly they want to change the subject.

00:09:25--> 00:09:42

We wonder why are Palestinians treated so inhumanely? Why is every aspect of their lives controlled and then subjected to abuse and humiliation? Why does the world close its eyes to these atrocities that happen every day

00:09:44--> 00:09:49

and not just close its eyes to it but support it with Aiden funding.

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

There's an important verse in the Quran for us to reflect on.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

Allah subhanaw taala that says women Kitab women and men will be broken

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

For you adhering women, men and men will be dinner law you adhere it aka in the Madam Chair and

00:10:09--> 00:10:17

that Allah subhanaw taala either says amongst the people of the book are those that if you were to entrust them with gunpowder great amount of wealth of gold,

00:10:19--> 00:10:35

they will give it back to you. They are trustworthy when minimum but amongst them are those that if you were to entrust them with a dinar with a silver coin that's not worth that much. They would not give it back to you. Unless you called upon it over and over and over again. Why?

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

Then Nick can be unknown Kado they Selena?

00:10:41--> 00:10:54

They Amina Serbia. This is because they say there is no blame upon us and how we deal with the unlettered people, meaning the Arabs

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

were Allah and Caribbean.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

And they speak lies about Allah. While they know.

00:11:04--> 00:11:26

They say that for a second, this verse is powerful. Because this verse reminds us do not generalize. There are in fact, good people who are from the people of the book. There are good Christians and good Jews. If you were to entrust them with something important, they would fulfill that interest mint.

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

But this verse also informs us

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

that amongst them, is a mentality.

00:11:34--> 00:11:59

Amongst them are those who believe that they are correct to take the money of others, to take the money of the Arabs, because they see them as primitive, as barbaric, as less than human in the Tafseer. That says that they would say they say I mean 100 feet or more than a Hula, hula hula, they would say.

00:12:00--> 00:12:09

In Medina, they would say there's no problem with us taking the wealth of the Arabs, Allah has made it halal to us. We don't want to add alive Kevin, there lying about Allah subhanaw taala.

00:12:10--> 00:12:37

Remember, the explaining this verse, he says Allah is saying that there are good people from the People of the Book, who are very trustworthy. But there are those who are deceitful. And they justify their actions by saying these Arabs are primitive, they are beneath us. And so we can take what we want from them. This mentality is not only historic, it is present. And increasingly, this mentality is in power.

00:12:38--> 00:12:48

They may not utter the words, but in their actions, they are very clear. They do not see the blood of the Palestinians as being worth anything.

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

Even in our local media here,

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

we see these reporters going around.

00:12:56--> 00:13:02

And they put the microphone to the faces of Palestinians or Muslims. And they say, Do you condemn Hamas? Do you condemn them?

00:13:04--> 00:13:13

And those of us who are old enough to remember a post 911 world where they would do the exact same thing? The reporters shove the microphone in your face? And they say, Do you condemn? Do you condemn?

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

Notice, for example,

00:13:17--> 00:13:38

they will never ask an American and shove the microphone in his face and say, Do you condemn the invasion of Iraq, and the torture of Iraq peace, even if that American served in the Army, even if that American was in government at the time they invaded Iraq? They would not ask them that question. Why? Because that question presumes guilt.

00:13:39--> 00:13:46

The implication of the question from the very beginning is that you are guilty. And let us interrogate you to see whether or not you are guilty.

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

The implication of the question is that you support killing children. And let me interrogate you from the outset.

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

But the question also builds a bigger construct

00:13:59--> 00:14:30

the idea that we must unreservedly condemn the death of Israelis, we have to so we shove the microphone in your face, you have to condemn the death of Israelis. When did they do this when Palestinians die? When did they ask that question when Palestinians are killed? Never? Because the implication of this question is that the blood and the lives of Palestinians are worth less than the lives in the blood of Israelis. And these narratives are not benign.

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

They build through them policy.

00:14:35--> 00:14:47

You build these narratives, so that so called leaders from the United States, from Canada from the UK from France can now stand up and say, We will support any action that is taken.

00:14:49--> 00:14:50

And today we see a Gaza

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

which was a prison

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

now turned into an extermination camp.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

They tell the lessons you have to leave and they

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

on their only escape route. They tell them you have to leave. And they know they can't leave. They tell them that you have to leave, knowing that if they somehow are able to leave, they're never going to be able to return back to their homes.

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

And just today, the President

00:15:20--> 00:15:29

of that country, was asked about the citizens of Azusa, he said those citizens should have gotten rid of Hamas. And since they didn't, they're all the same.

00:15:34--> 00:15:45

That shows us that they see every single person in Gaza as guilty and worthy of being killed. Why? Because they do not see them as human beings, laser and enough.

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

There is no blame on us for whatever we do to these people.

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

But I remind you, and remind myself

00:15:58--> 00:16:18

in everything there is a lesson. Yes, they will send billions of dollars in aid to Ukraine, and at the same breath, justify what is happening in the buzzer. Yes, they will insult the Prophet in Islam and the Muslims. And tacitly encouraged the dehumanization of Muslims, while also blunt banning any protest

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

that seeks to stop the destruction of Palestinians.

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

But listen to me carefully.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

They are an ummah

00:16:31--> 00:16:37

and they see themselves as an ummah and they will never see us as part of their ummah.

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

And Allah made us and Oma.

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

We should not rely upon them.

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

Allah tells us well in total Ghana and Kenya who are Nosara

00:16:55--> 00:16:58

the Jews and the Christians are never going to be pleased with you.

00:16:59--> 00:17:22

Until you follow their ways, until you follow their beliefs in their religion. And if you know this, then you need to start thinking as an ummah, you need to start breathing as an ummah. We are not Egyptians and Pakistanis, and certainly with ease and Bengalis. Yes, we have different languages and cultures. Yeah, we are an ummah

00:17:24--> 00:17:28

based on our connection to the book of Allah and to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:17:30--> 00:17:40

The Prophet said and Walkman, then Walkman California and you should do ba the whole Baba, the believer to the believer, they are like bricks in the wall, reinforcing one another.

00:17:42--> 00:17:52

We have to become that hadith. We have to live the Hadith, we have to truly become brothers to each other, support each other, see each other as one,

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

even or especially when the oppression is severe.

00:18:00--> 00:18:07

And then these times it's important for us to remind ourselves, as hurt as we feel, we have to feel hope.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

We have to feel hope.

00:18:12--> 00:18:28

If you've been watching what's happening with a feeling of despair, not sadness, not grief, sadness and grief. These are things that human beings feel this is normal. But if you've been feeling despair, it's because you haven't been thinking enough about Allah subhanaw taala.

00:18:31--> 00:18:45

If you are depending on other people to help the oppressed, if you're thinking what other country is going to help these people, then of course you're going to feel despair, because there is no country that is going to help them.

00:18:48--> 00:18:54

But if you think about Allah subhanaw taala and you depend on Allah azza wa jal, you're going to, you're going to find hope.

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

You're going to be like our Prophet Sall, Allahu Allah, you will send him when he is in life. And all the doors of the dunya are closed on him.

00:19:04--> 00:19:34

All of the world has turned its back on him. So Allahu Allah, you send them and he is struck and he is hurt and he is bleeding. And the angel comes to him and says, give me permission I will destroy the people of authority if and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says been a Jew, and therefore de la mina slabby him menyambut Allah well I used to be if he says no, I have hope, that from their offspring will come those worst Allah Allah and associate nothing in the worship of Allah azza wa jal.

00:19:35--> 00:19:48

He found hope, because he is thinking about Allah azza wa jal, even in the most dire of moments, Allah is worthy of our trust in our hope. He is going to give more to them.

00:19:49--> 00:19:58

To those who are killed, he is going to strengthen those who are oppressed. In fact, our prophets Allah Allahu Allah, He will send them already said

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

in a hadith

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

There is a powerful premonition. He said that his adult life at a minimum Mati Aladeen law hit in the other way him call him liable. Roman holophone

00:20:14--> 00:20:18

Ilana Asada, our Pattaya

00:20:19--> 00:20:48

yet to whom umbrella on cathodic the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there will remain a group from my own man, strong upon their religion, overpowering their enemies. Nothing will harm them, even those who deceive them and turn away from them and abandon them except calamities that will happen to them. And he said they will remain in the States. Until Allah's command comes meaning until they die, or until the Day of Judgment occurs.

00:20:50--> 00:20:55

They asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called men whom who are these people, messenger of Allah.

00:20:57--> 00:21:12

Sorry, they said Aina homeo rasool Allah, where are they well, messenger of Allah. He said, all obey to knock this what a cafe to Noctus he said they are in a liquid surround Alexa and in the places surrounding us.

00:21:13--> 00:21:50

I actually do not worry for our brothers and sisters in Palestine. I am hurt for them. I grieve for them. But I don't worry for them, because the most important thing in this world is Iman and they have Eman. I have seen even the enemies are amazed by the Eman of the people in Folstein. Instead, I worry about us. I worry I worry about us losing faith and losing our sense of ummah. I worry about us Muslims willing to abandon our brothers and sisters to gain a sliver of dunya.

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

Just as you want to support the oppressed,

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

who are like you,

00:22:00--> 00:22:40

just as you want support when you are oppressed, you have to support them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man and Muslim, young Muslim and female Tinian taqlid fee me now I don't think he Ilaha illa Allah who felt in your humble feet. He said there is no Muslim who betrays another Muslim, and a time are in a place where their dignity is being erased. Meaning you see the dignity of another as being destroyed. Their homes are being burned, their children are being orphaned. Their women are being widowed. You see their dignity is being eradicated. And you are capable of helping them even with a word and you betray them and you turn your back to them. You

00:22:40--> 00:22:53

want to protect your status. You want to keep your money, you want to fear the enemy, in the huddle of Allah except that ALLAH will betray that person in a time when that person needs the help of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah

00:22:54--> 00:23:09

and our Prophet sallallahu Where are you send them tells us mukana if you had a tip, whoever is in the need of his brother in the service of his brother, can Allah who if you Hagerty then Allah subhanaw taala will certainly be in the support of that person.

00:23:10--> 00:23:13

That will not only hide our stuff module that comes through in order for him.

00:23:25--> 00:24:01

SM allowed him to Lesotho Salam wa Rasulillah who are the ad he was happy woman wider. I know we are short on time, but I want to not conclude before mentioning a few important points. Number one, as we mentioned, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah is in the aid of the person who's in the aid of his brother. So what should we be doing right now to aid and to help our brothers and sisters and cousins? Number one to turn to Allah subhanaw taala to make Toba to Allah asada. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says the horrid facade of Hillary will be Marchesa, but ad NAS Lucy a poem that Lydia Aniruddha Allah.

00:24:02--> 00:24:44

Allah says corruption has spread in the land and upon the seas as a result of what people have done, so that Allah may cause them to taste the consequences of some of their deeds, landlocked on your Geralyn so they may return back to Allah and soda. We need to make Toba to Allah Subhana Allah gave this on the victory in Palestine twice, once with a motivated photography Allah one. And once was the light at the end and a yogi right and Allah Tala, both of them are deeply religious and connected to Allah. And both were people of justice, that even their enemies had to marvel at how noble they are. We will not have victory until we can follow these examples.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

And in order to do so, we need to make Toba to Allah subhanaw taala turn away from our sins, except the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as our way and I want to mention something because there are people even in our city going around saying

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

We're afraid of what's going to happen to us. We're afraid these Muslims are going to attack us.

00:25:05--> 00:25:22

It is natural to feel angry at what is happening. It is normal to feel anger what is happening, but the anger has to be channeled, channeled in ways that are productive, and that are according to the Quran and Sunnah. And the example of our prophets of Allah wherever you are sending them

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

otherwise, the anger is selfish.

00:25:30--> 00:25:45

Somebody wants to go hit someone, random person in Canada want to go fight them want to face buildings or things like that selfish anger, it's about you and your Eagle. That's not taking your anger and using it for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada in accordance with his religion.

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

Number two, we have to advocate

00:25:49--> 00:26:26

we have the ability to speak in this country. In other countries, Muslims don't have the ability to move their tongues. There are countries in the world that was watching on YouTube to hear the hotspots of other themes in the world. Some countries not a single hotbed, even mentioned our brothers and sisters in Palestine. They don't have the freedom to even talk, you have the ability to talk. You can pick up a phone and call your political leaders or send them a letter, you have resources from NCCM, or justice for all Canada that you can use to talk to MPs and politicians and say, what's going on? What are you doing? How are you allowing this to happen right now?

00:26:27--> 00:26:32

You can call the media and say why are you not showing the pain and the suffering of Palestinians.

00:26:34--> 00:26:43

Number three, you need to educate yourself and others. You need to tell people about what's happening. Use social media to talk about what's taking place.

00:26:45--> 00:26:56

share posts, from human rights organizations that are talking about the plight of Palestinian people. You don't have to get into arguments, just post this stuff, get it out there. You can do this and more.
