Why y'all fear lecom Zulu back home? What are you to your Allah wa Sula, who, for Cody first films and how about

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala made

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

the alternation of the day and the night

00:01:44--> 00:01:49

of the weeks of the months of the years

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

of the seasons.

00:01:53--> 00:01:57

Allah made it for us to reflect

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

over his creation.

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

You can leave Allahu Laila one hour

00:02:06--> 00:02:14

in a very rarely color variable Ratan Leonel Azhar, Allah alternates the night and the day.

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

Allah says that he alternates

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

the night and the day.

00:02:22--> 00:02:37

One day goes by, and then a night comes, and then another day comes, and another night, likewise, the months Allah alternates, and the seasons and the years and Allah says indeed in that,

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

indeed in that

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

is a sign

00:02:45--> 00:02:55

and something to reflect over for the people have insights for the people who will use what Allah has given them,

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

their faculty of reasoning,

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

and so

00:03:01--> 00:03:07

on, as we enter into another season, the winter season.

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

Let us reflect over

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

the change in the season.

00:03:16--> 00:03:22

And how we are now entering into a cold season in which the days are short.

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

And the nights are long.

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

The first thing to reflect over is the power of Allah,

00:03:33--> 00:03:57

his mind and his power. And so when one season finishes, and another starts, it's all by the will of Allah, His permission and his power. When it rains, it rains because of Allah's command, when the ground becomes dry, when the leaves start falling

00:04:01--> 00:04:10

it's all by the permission of Allah Wamena de and Takuma Surma Otto Goobie Amory

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

and from the signs of Allah

00:04:16--> 00:04:21

is that the heavens and earth, the entire creation,

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

they are bound by the command of Allah.

00:04:25--> 00:04:32

Some either come down to mineral already, either untamed through June.

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

And then

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

when he calls you,

00:04:38--> 00:04:53

after you have become dust and bones beneath the ground, when he calls upon you, to come forth, out of your graves for the resurrection, you will all exit from your graves. And so even that

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

is by the command of Allah.

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

Secondly,

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

The coming of the winter

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

means that an entire year has gone by.

00:05:08--> 00:05:12

With all of its seasons, an entire year

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

has come to an end.

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

And so likewise

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

our lives are also coming to an end.

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

A year of your life has gone by

00:05:27--> 00:05:43

reflect over the fact that you are today closer to your death than you were yesterday than you were a year ago. In El motel let each of your rune Amin, for in whom would you

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

say to them Oh Mohamed that this debt that you flee from that you try to evade and run away from

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

it is catching up to you.

00:05:56--> 00:06:02

And then you will be returned to Allah Who will tell you everything that you used to do.

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

Thirdly,

00:06:06--> 00:06:10

this cold that bothers us this bitter cold.

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that it is something that Hellfire releases.

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

that Hellfire complained to Allah,

00:06:28--> 00:06:59

saying that some parts of me have eaten and consumed other parts. So Allah allowed, Allah allowed the Hellfire to release some of its heat, to allow it to take bread twice, once in the summer, and once in the winter, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and so this is the reason for severe heat meaning in the summer, and the bitter cold meaning in the winter.

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

Thirdly,

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

winter

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

is an opportunity for those of us

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

who find certain activity bad

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

to be difficult

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

or other times of the year.

00:07:21--> 00:07:45

And so the days are shorter and opportunity to fast and the nights are longer an opportunity to set a port apart and a portion of the night in the ADA Allah getting up to pray the young lady and so even miss rude or the Allahu Allah he says marhaba Ni*a

00:07:46--> 00:08:16

welcoming winter 10 Zero fee Hill Baraka you're too new fee hill you know, little pm for your solo fee in a song. He said, welcome a winter in it, the baraka of Allah the blessings of Allah descend. And so the night becomes long and opportunity to pray to emulate and the days become short. An opportunity to fast

00:08:17--> 00:08:28

Abu Huraira or the Allahu Allah Allahu he also says, Allah do LUCAM Allah do Luca Mahalalel honey Matilda reader, shall I not show you

00:08:30--> 00:08:39

the cool prize? The booty that you win easily, without much struggle? Those who fight in battle,

00:08:41--> 00:08:41

and they when

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

they reward is that booty the spoils of war. But how did they get it?

00:08:50--> 00:09:12

Through the heat of the battle? So Abu Huraira or the Allahu Allah he says, Shall I not show you a way to win that booty? Referring to the reward of Allah without much battle without much struggle. And so he's here are the Allahu Allah he says, are sweet, fishy that work Iam Legolas schita.

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

Fast fasting in the winter

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

and praying the emulator in the winter.

00:09:22--> 00:09:29

Even Raja Ibrahima hula hooter Isla he says, winter is the spring of the believer,

00:09:30--> 00:10:00

because he revels in the orchards of obedience, and goes a vote in the fields of worship. And his heart takes pleasure in strolling in the gardens of deeds in it. Just like the cattle graze in the spring pastures becoming fat and healthy. Likewise, the dean of the Muslim becomes rectified in the waiter, through what Allah has made easy in it, of good deeds. And so my dear brothers and sister

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

sirs,

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

let us take advantage of this time

00:10:05--> 00:10:28

in the IBA of Allah. Some of us we complain in the summer, the days are long, we're not able to fast. The nights are short. All we want to do is take as much sleep as we can in it. But here's an opportunity for us that we shouldn't miss. And especially in the times in which we are witnessing today.

00:10:29--> 00:10:32

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:10:33--> 00:10:37

either to Phil horloge okay, hey, Jonathan era,

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

that a bad

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

worship

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

secluding yourself in their era of Allah in times of bloodshed

00:10:51--> 00:11:06

in times of catastrophe and chaos is like, my greeting to me, meaning if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alive, and you migrated to him, to live with him,

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

to defend him.

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

That is the reward of it.

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

Why

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

Imam and Noah he says

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

that the reason why a bird is special

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

at this time,

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

in times of bloodshed

00:11:31--> 00:11:34

in times of chaos and catastrophe.

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

It's because the majority of the people

00:11:39--> 00:11:43

they're busy following the news. They're busy

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

trying to see what's going on.

00:11:49--> 00:11:50

They're busy

00:11:51--> 00:11:58

trying to figure out solutions to the problems. And so when everyone is busy, a handful of the servants of Allah

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

turn to Allah

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

and seclude themselves into a battle of Allah.

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

So when we know

00:12:11--> 00:12:21

when we know that among the reasons for why we are witnessing what we are witnessing, is because we as an ummah, have become distanced from Allah.

00:12:23--> 00:12:27

Should we take advantage of times like this, to get closer to Allah?

00:12:29--> 00:12:30

When we know

00:12:31--> 00:12:32

that

00:12:34--> 00:12:38

the strongest weapon that we have in our hands is dua

00:12:40--> 00:12:45

to alleviate the suffering of our brothers and sisters. Shouldn't we be turning to Allah

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

in the middle of the night

00:12:50--> 00:12:51

and asking him

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

to alleviate their suffering.

00:12:55--> 00:12:59

And so let us take advantage of this golden opportunity

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:06--> 00:13:28

BarakAllahu li Walakum Quran lawI whenever anywhere er can be mafi he means it will decree Hakeem Hakuna Matata Simone are still federal law Haley welcome Lisa Eden Massimino included Edom them being a hobby festival hero who in no kind of a thorough way to Ely in noncommittal Weber.

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

So my dear brothers and sisters

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

among

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

The reflections

00:15:03--> 00:15:08

of the coming of the season of the winter. And the cold that is settling in

00:15:10--> 00:15:14

is that it is a time to reflect on something very important.

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

So let us remember

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

as the cold

00:15:25--> 00:15:26

comes in,

00:15:27--> 00:15:32

and you sit in the comfort of your heated homes

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

with your loved ones.

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

Remember

00:15:39--> 00:15:45

as you get your children ready in the morning, bundling them up, making sure

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

that they're protected from the cold.

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

Remember,

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

as you enjoy the luxury

00:15:57--> 00:16:06

of protecting yourself from the cold that we have our brothers and sisters who will not be enjoying any of that this winter.

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

And so we all know what's happening to our brothers and sisters in the USA Today.

00:16:14--> 00:16:22

And although it may not be as cold over there as it is over here, it still does get cold, especially in the night.

00:16:26--> 00:16:28

And so over a month has gone by

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

and to this very moment

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

1000s have lost their lives.

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

A few weeks ago.

00:16:45--> 00:16:46

The Masjid posted

00:16:47--> 00:16:50

the names of the Shuhada.

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

All along the walls.

00:16:55--> 00:17:00

And this was several weeks ago, these names are probably

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

7000 or 8000.

00:17:07--> 00:17:17

Today, the count is 15,000 15,000 of our brothers and sisters have been slaughtered.

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

35,000 have been injured

00:17:25--> 00:17:28

the majority of them children and women.

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

Those who have survived

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

have nowhere to go.

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

Half of the houses have been destroyed

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

a population of 2.3 million. Imagine that.

00:17:46--> 00:17:51

Half of them have lost their homes. They don't have a home to go back to.

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

Even those who have their homes undamaged.

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

They have left their homes, they can't live there.

00:18:03--> 00:18:13

They're all taking refuge, either in hospitals, or in schools or in refugee camps. And even there, they're unsafe. They're being targeted.

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

And so my dear brothers and sisters, with this being the case

00:18:24--> 00:18:31

where they have been forced to leave their homes, and even if the fighting was to stop, they have nowhere to go.

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

What's the reason for

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

that Alladhina resuming the hem, be ye helping Illa

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

Allah

00:18:46--> 00:18:57

those who have been driven from their homes, forced out of their homes unjustly. For what reason? Only because they say our hope is Allah

00:18:58--> 00:19:03

why not call me in whom Illa me Doom Villa Hill, Aziz al Hamid.

00:19:06--> 00:19:09

They didn't have any resent for them.

00:19:10--> 00:19:18

They didn't have any hatred for them, meaning the enemies of Allah. They didn't have any hatred for the believers

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

except because of their Eman their belief in Allah.

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

We have to understand it this way.

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

There's conflict

00:19:32--> 00:19:37

is about an ongoing conflict between the truth and falsehood between email and cover

00:19:41--> 00:19:45

between the outer layer of ramen and the ollie of a shaitan

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

and so if that is the case

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

then the response

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

has to be suitable.

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

If they are facing this injustice because of their Eman

00:20:07--> 00:20:12

and Eman that we share with them, then the question is what is our response?

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

Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says El Nino little mean

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

the believer

00:20:24--> 00:20:29

How does he behave with his fellow believer the person of Eman?

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

How does he respond to another person of Eman

00:20:35--> 00:20:41

called Boone? Yang? Yeah should do bow whoo hoo bah bah. Like a structure like a building.

00:20:43--> 00:20:52

All of the different parts of the building holds it together. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he put his fingers together like this,

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

showing how strong that bond is.

00:20:57--> 00:21:03

And so Allah subhanho wa taala, afflicts a part of this ummah,

00:21:04--> 00:21:07

to test the Eman of the rest.

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

Are they alive?

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

Are they dead?

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

Because the owner is like one body.

00:21:20--> 00:21:29

If parts of the body do not feel the pain of the other parts, then it's because they're either drugged or they're dead.

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

So what is our response?

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

We can become as angry as we want.

00:21:41--> 00:21:50

We can show our emotions as much as we want. We can voice with our words as much as we want. But in the end of the day, ask yourself

00:21:52--> 00:21:58

What have you done with your money with your wealth to alleviate their suffering?

00:22:00--> 00:22:04

As we mentioned, as the winter and the cold comes in.

00:22:07--> 00:22:13

We mentioned in the very beginning, when this all started over a month ago, we mentioned

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

that there is a siege in place.

00:22:18--> 00:22:23

And a month ago we mentioned that now is the time to send

00:22:24--> 00:22:30

as much aid as you can, because although the aid is not getting in, eventually

00:22:31--> 00:22:35

eventually the siege will be lifted and the aid will start coming in.

00:22:37--> 00:22:40

And so today is the first day of that.

00:22:41--> 00:22:52

As the ceasefire comes in, the aid is starting to go in. If you contributed a month ago, than what you had contributed, is going in today.

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

Let us not procrastinate. Now is the time at your brothers and sisters.

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:23:03--> 00:23:04

he wants to enter the Garden

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

a farm

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

and he saw a camel

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

this camel

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

looked at the prophets on Allah Almighty you as Allah.

00:23:23--> 00:23:27

And as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was watching him, looking at him.

00:23:30--> 00:23:32

His eyes started to flow with tears.

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

And he said where is the owner of this camel?

00:23:40--> 00:23:41

When he found him, he said,

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:23:46--> 00:23:51

this animal it complained to me that you leave it hungry

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

00:24:04--> 00:24:12

who quenched the thirst of a dog, and how Allah forgives her sins, just because of that act of kindness. So how about those who come to the aid of their brothers and sisters who are suffering unjustly?
