doesn't have

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

a mother

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

on the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

entered Mecca

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

human factor

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

on the day in which

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

the conquest of Mecca occurred.

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

He entered Mecca and he approached the Kava

00:02:13--> 00:02:17

and after destroying all of the idols in the Kava.

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

And as the 1000s of Muslims were surrounding him.

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

He looked

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

among his companions

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

and he was looking for one individual.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

And so he asked, where his beloved

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

This is among

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

the notables and the leaders of koresh

00:02:58--> 00:03:05

and among even the best of the companions, aboubaker and Homer and the others.

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

He's looking for one individual Billa rhodiola, who

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

he asked Where is Bella?

00:03:19--> 00:03:24

And so Allah das, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:03:25--> 00:03:33

he saw the law and he said, Oh, Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is looking for you.

00:03:37--> 00:03:42

And so began approached in front of all of the other companions,

00:03:43--> 00:03:46

and went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, obey the law and come with me.

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

Come with me.

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

As I go inside of the cab,

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

to be the first to pray in it.

00:04:05--> 00:04:11

I want you to be with me to pray with me inside of the cab before anyone else.

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

Why?

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

there I saw you obey the law

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

on the day

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

when you were tortured,

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

and no one else was tortured for Islam besides you.

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

And so it was because

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

of his sacrifice to Islam.

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

The elevated him

00:04:53--> 00:04:57

to be and to receive this honor

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

that none of the other competitor

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

Indians had the privilege of, but it didn't end there.

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

After they came out

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:05:12--> 00:05:16

he told Bella to get up and climb the Kaaba

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

and to give the air then

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

from the top of the cabinet.

00:05:23--> 00:05:30

And so we climbed on top of the shoulders of Abu Bakr and Omar, the best of the companions

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

to call

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

from the top of the cabinet.

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

this privilege and this honor

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

that Bilal rhodiola, who

00:05:52--> 00:05:57

received being an ex slave

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

and an African

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

had nothing to do

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

with the color of his skin,

00:06:06--> 00:06:12

or his ethnic background, or where he came from, or how he looked.

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

But rather,

00:06:15--> 00:06:26

it was because of his he man and his taqwa that translated into sacrifice, and interaction.

00:06:33--> 00:06:38

And so what raises others, what raises certain people over others

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

is nothing but that.

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

And that's because when awasum had who which Allah created us,

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

He created us to be

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

of different colors of different ethnic backgrounds.

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

But the one thing that he need

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

to be the distinguishing factor among us.

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

His his consciousness is his taqwa is our piety, our righteousness.

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

And so Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:07:21--> 00:07:31

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Lucha Libre young guru Ella Suri Come with me Come.

00:07:33--> 00:07:37

Well, how can young guru Ilana few guru become

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:07:43--> 00:07:58

there are lots of Hannah who attalla does not look at your forms and your bodies. He doesn't look at your color. He doesn't look at your shape. He doesn't look at your beauty. But he looks at

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

is that your hearts? What is in your hearts and he looks at your deeds. These are the two things that Allah subhanahu wa tada looks at.

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

And so,

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

when Allah subhanho wa Taala created us

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

Yes, He created us

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

to be from different races from different ethnic backgrounds.

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

But that is not what he permitted us

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

to be superior because of

00:08:39--> 00:08:43

Yeah, you know, so in Hakuna comienza Karina

00:08:45--> 00:08:58

addresses us as human beings. Notice how here Allah does not even call upon us by the attribute of a man as Allah does elsewhere in the Quran. Yeah, you

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

know, here Allah is referring to all of us

00:09:05--> 00:09:11

believers and disbelievers. Yeah, you harness we have created you

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

from a male and a female.

00:09:18--> 00:09:21

Watch Ruben waka Ella

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

and we made you

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

to be

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

peoples and try

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

for what purpose

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

Lita

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

to get to know one another.

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

Not so that one

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

can feel that they have the upper hand over the other.

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala concludes by saying

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

in a kurama coonan de la

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

The most noble of you,

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

the most noble of you, are those who have the most

00:10:13--> 00:10:21

the most consciousness of Allah, the Most piety, the most righteousness. And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

a Muslim can be

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

of a different ethnic backgrounds and you

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

you can be from one part of the world, and they could be from the other.

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

You could speak one language, and they could speak another.

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

And it is not that, that Bond's us together.

00:10:46--> 00:10:51

But rather what binds us together is our man and our.

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

And so

00:10:56--> 00:10:56

a Muslim

00:10:58--> 00:11:03

to Muslims from different ethnic backgrounds are closer to one another

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

than a Muslim,

00:11:07--> 00:11:11

who may share the same blood as a disbeliever.

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

And so what binds us is our Deen

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

and our Islam.

00:11:18--> 00:11:23

And this is what Islam came to teach us.

00:11:24--> 00:11:26

My dear brothers and sisters, it is this

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

that elevated

00:11:30--> 00:11:38

certain people over others, what is it that caused the likes of VLAN and souhei.

00:11:40--> 00:11:53

And salmonella faricy, to become elevated over the likes of Abuja, and Abu lahab, who in those days were considered the most noble of people,

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

the best of individuals.

00:11:57--> 00:12:09

My dear brothers and sisters, Islam came 1400 years ago, to, to basically abolish, and get rid of racism.

00:12:11--> 00:12:25

To get rid of this concept of one race, feeling that it has superiority over others, it came to abolish tribalism, that was rampant among the Arabs.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

And it came to abolish

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

ideologies like nationalism.

00:12:33--> 00:12:48

And so this worked for centuries, read Islamic history. And you will find how Islam raised individuals, to become leaders in society,

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

to become scholars,

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

to become educators,

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

in all walks and fields of life.

00:13:01--> 00:13:07

And yet, they came from all different ethnic backgrounds.

00:13:08--> 00:13:09

What elevated them

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

is nothing but this Diem.

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

And what caused others who felt that they were superior to become

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

inferior

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala was nothing but this D.

00:13:27--> 00:13:39

And so this continued on for centuries. And it lasted for centuries. And this is why, if you were to look across the Muslim world, what do you find

00:13:40--> 00:13:56

that Muslims don't come from one particular race, or ethnic background? or speak one language, but rather, the majority of Muslims around the world come from non Arab backgrounds?

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

My dear brothers and sisters,

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

this

00:14:02--> 00:14:11

is the reality of Islam. It came to abolish racism in a time when today racism

00:14:12--> 00:14:15

is becoming rampant,

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

not at the individual level, but at the state level.

00:14:20--> 00:14:24

And when some non Muslims look at us and say, How can you say this,

00:14:25--> 00:14:29

that Islam came to abolish racism?

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

When you look at many Muslims today,

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

and how they are involved in racism,

00:14:38--> 00:14:46

what we say is that let us look at what Islam teaches and not at the behavior of Muslims. Yes.

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

Many Muslims today, go to Muslim countries, where you find that racism is definitely a problem and it needs to be addressed. But one thing that we have to address

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

dress is, don't judge Islam by the behavior of Muslims but rather judge Islam

00:15:10--> 00:15:34

by its scripture by the Quran and the Sunnah, and by the teachings of Islam barakallahu li walakum for Annie Levine when I say honey what can be Murphy mean?

Allah subhanahu wa tada says, Oh, you who believe.

00:17:14--> 00:17:17

stand for, for justice.

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

Stand firm for justice, as witnesses

00:17:23--> 00:17:26

as witnesses of the truth for Allah,

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

even if it be against yourselves,

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

or your relatives.

00:17:37--> 00:17:42

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us to stand up for justice.

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

And as we see the unfolding events,

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

south of the border

00:17:56--> 00:17:59

where of movement, a movement has started

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

to call for the justice of the killing

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

of George Floyd.

00:18:08--> 00:18:12

It is important for Muslims today,

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

as we witness these events,

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

to keep in mind

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

several points related to justice and standing up for justice.

00:18:26--> 00:18:28

The first point is

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

that justice

00:18:34--> 00:18:42

is a universal moral value that Islam keen to uphold and to promote

00:18:43--> 00:18:45

and to command the believers to stand up for

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

as mentioned in this ayah

00:18:51--> 00:19:14

and so, Allah subhanahu wa Tada, commanded justice and did not specify it. In the La Jolla neurobiological Allah commands justice. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a hadith could see a was a parent who would Allah says, Yeah, are you daddy in the harem to volmer an FC,

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

which is to whom how Rahman penico

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

ferrata.

00:19:22--> 00:19:31

Allah says, All my servants, I have made injustice or oppression, to be haram upon myself.

00:19:32--> 00:19:38

And I have made it to be forbidden among you. So do not oppress one another.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

And so justice

00:19:42--> 00:19:48

is a universal moral value that Islam came to uphold

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

and to command

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

irrespective of who is being dealt with injustice, whether it be a Muslim or a non Muslim

00:20:03--> 00:20:08

And what we learn from one of the events in the Sierra in the life of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

is how

00:20:12--> 00:20:17

he was keen to uphold justice, even if

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

it had nothing to do with Islam.

00:20:22--> 00:20:33

And so we see this in the event, which occurred before the prophethood of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And that was unhelpful for Lou,

00:20:35--> 00:20:42

where an individual, he was dealt with injustice in Macau. He was not from Mecca.

00:20:47--> 00:20:55

And those who dealt with him unjustly, they thought that they could get away with it, because they were from the notables on.

00:20:58--> 00:21:01

And so we called on the leaders of kurush.

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

And he said, How can you allow this to happen?

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

And so the story goes,

00:21:10--> 00:21:18

that certain individuals from Christ, they got together, and they made an alliance, a pact called hillford football,

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

where they said, We will uphold justice, no matter who injustice is done against.

00:21:27--> 00:21:37

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, recalling that event, he says, that my uncles, they took me to that meeting.

00:21:40--> 00:21:47

They took me to that meeting, and I witnessed a pact and alliance that took place.

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

And I would never prefer

00:21:52--> 00:21:54

the best read camels

00:21:55--> 00:22:00

over that pact, that I had witnessed, and I had taken part with.

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if this pact was made in Islam,

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

meaning after Islam was revealed.

00:22:11--> 00:22:33

And if I was called, to witness such an alliance, with Allah Subhana, who Allah commanded me to do, so, I would have done so. And so what this shows us is that Islam came to uphold justice, regardless of where justice is being called from.

00:22:35--> 00:22:39

And regardless of who injustice is being done to.

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

Secondly,

00:22:44--> 00:22:47

Justice is a concept

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

that is of different kinds

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

and different levels.

00:22:56--> 00:23:01

And so, we have the rights of us human beings,

00:23:02--> 00:23:11

we have certain rights over others, no one is allowed to deal with another human being unjustly and unfairly.

00:23:12--> 00:23:18

No one is allowed to take the life of another, unjustly, unfairly.

00:23:19--> 00:23:24

But just like we have rights among one another, as fellow human beings,

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

there are the rights between us and our Creator. The loss of Hannah

00:23:36--> 00:23:45

and the right of Allah subhanho wa Taala over us, supersedes the rights that are between us human beings.

00:23:47--> 00:24:13

And so look man, he says to his son, what is called a local man we live in what is called look man Lee. We have done a lot to Shrek villa. When look man said to his son, oh my son, do not associate partners with Allah in Shere Khan of uhlmann. avi him. Indeed, Schick is a great injustice.

00:24:14--> 00:24:22

So the greatest injustice is to associate partners with the loss of Hannah who were to Allah. Let us not forget that.

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked

00:24:29--> 00:24:41

Yasuo wa I used them before album, which sin is greatest. What did he reply with? Did he say to murder someone is the greatest sin.

00:24:43--> 00:24:51

To commit Zina is the greatest sin. to disobey your parents is the greatest sin to steal is the greatest sin. Nope.

00:24:52--> 00:24:56

He said, and Tasha, Ida Lila, he needs

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

wahaca

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

this person

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Bing the form of injustice

00:25:03--> 00:25:09

with respect to Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it is

00:25:10--> 00:25:15

to attribute to Allah, a partner, a rival, when it is He Who created you.

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

So what greater injustice could there be,

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

then to claim that Allah has a partner,

00:25:26--> 00:25:32

and is deserving of worship, when he alone created you,

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

and gave you everything.

00:25:37--> 00:25:37

Thirdly,

00:25:40--> 00:25:43

when standing up for justice,

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

and calling

00:25:48--> 00:25:50

for justice,

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

in the current situation,

00:25:54--> 00:25:57

and joining the movement known as

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

Black Lives,

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

the movement, Black Lives Matter.

00:26:06--> 00:26:10

And the social justice warriors, it is important to remember

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

that such movements,

00:26:15--> 00:26:19

they go against many Islamic principles.

00:26:21--> 00:26:25

And they oppose Islam on many levels.

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

And so we have to remember that although we support them in calling for justice, it needs to be restricted to that. And limited to that.

00:26:41--> 00:26:44

And not to join them on critically

00:26:45--> 00:26:51

and to join them wholesale. And to call for everything that they call for.

00:26:52--> 00:26:58

This is something that we need to remember and pay attention to, for three,

00:26:59--> 00:27:00

Islam stance

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

on how to deal with injustice is very clear.

00:27:08--> 00:27:13

And that is, through the methods that Islam has permitted.

00:27:15--> 00:27:17

law you hit boo, boo,

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

boo limb,

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

the law says

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

that Allah does not like Allah does not love for someone

00:27:29--> 00:27:42

to openly proclaim something, and to show except for those who are dealt with unjustly, the oppressed, they can raise their voice,

00:27:43--> 00:27:49

and even that has to be limited. And so what we see today of the looting

00:27:51--> 00:27:51

and

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

the anarchy

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

that is taking place.

00:27:58--> 00:28:05

This is something that Islam is clear on where the oppressed should respond within the limits

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

that Allah subhanho wa Taala has allowed, and that his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has allowed.

00:28:14--> 00:28:21

And so transgression is fought back with by educating and not transgression

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

in light.

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

Finally,

00:28:27--> 00:28:28

let us not forget

00:28:32--> 00:28:33

that the injustice

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

at the institutional level that we have seen,

00:28:41--> 00:28:42

south of the border

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

is only one episode, and only one example

00:28:48--> 00:28:52

in a series of episodes

00:28:54--> 00:28:54

that

00:28:56--> 00:29:00

are not restricted to the confines and the borders

00:29:01--> 00:29:06

of the US, but rather, the oppression and the transgression

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

of the American government goes beyond.

00:29:11--> 00:29:32

And it affects the lives and it has affected the lives of 1000s if not millions of people around the world, whether they be Muslims or non Muslims, but especially as we have seen over the over the past many decades, the transgression

00:29:33--> 00:29:49

that has resulted in the lives of 1000s and hundreds of 1000s of Muslims, whether it be in Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Palestine, or any other part of the Muslim world.

00:29:50--> 00:29:51

And so what we need to remember

00:29:54--> 00:29:54

is

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

that tyranny has its limits.

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

And oppression

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

has its limit.

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

Anyone who reads history

00:30:10--> 00:30:11

will realize one thing.

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

And that is

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

that the eventual end

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

of the oppressors

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

and the people involved in tyranny

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

is that they come crumbling down

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

in front of the eyes of the oppressed.

00:30:35--> 00:30:41

This is a son of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Throughout history, going beyond

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

our own Islamic history.

00:30:46--> 00:30:55

Look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala dealt with the nations of the past. A prime example is Musa alayhis, salaam and further home.

00:30:57--> 00:31:03

But even later on, look at how the the oppressors were dealt with.

00:31:04--> 00:31:07

What is the reason for that? What is the secret and

00:31:08--> 00:31:28

the secret in that is that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want people to think that injustice is actually justice. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala set this dunya upon justice, and he doesn't want us to become diluted into thinking

00:31:29--> 00:31:36

the oppression and injustice is actually right, and fair.

00:31:37--> 00:31:41

And so that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala hastens

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

the punishment of the oppressor.

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

And this is why

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

Dana joshy,

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

who embraced Islam.

00:31:56--> 00:32:01

One of the things that he was famous one of his quotes that he was famous for.

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

He said,

00:32:04--> 00:32:08

Alan Mulally cuyamaca, Alan Cooper, voila, your

00:32:11--> 00:32:15

power and authority can last

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

if it is upon Cooper and disbelief,

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

but it will never last.

00:32:23--> 00:32:35

If it is based upon oppression and injustice, and that's why then a joshy was known for his justice and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would praise him for being a just ruler.

00:32:41--> 00:32:41

And so

00:32:44--> 00:32:46

even Tamia, he says,

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

He says,

00:32:50--> 00:32:54

in the law, how you clean Abdullah Al Cafiero

00:32:56--> 00:32:58

Allah de la, Vela you clean

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

a dolla avadi

00:33:04--> 00:33:06

This is the sooner of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:33:08--> 00:33:11

He says that Allah subhanho wa Taala me allow

00:33:14--> 00:33:16

a disbelieving nation

00:33:17--> 00:33:23

to survive to flourish as long as it is just

00:33:25--> 00:33:27

and he will never allow

00:33:29--> 00:33:32

a Muslim nation to flourish

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

if

00:33:35--> 00:33:36

it is oppressive.

00:33:37--> 00:33:42

And this is what we see throughout history, read history and this is what you'll find.

00:33:44--> 00:33:46

Until our very time today.

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

We're oppressive nation

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

and authoritative regimes

00:33:55--> 00:34:02

eventually came to an end even if they happen to be Muslim nations.

00:34:05--> 00:34:16

Whereas a disbelieving nation if it is based upon justice, it will last and it will flourish. Why because a loss of China who attended set this dunya

00:34:18--> 00:34:23

upon this universal value of Alhaji of justice.

00:34:24--> 00:34:45

We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to grant us insight into the dean. We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to bring justice to those who have been oppressed, no matter who they be, no matter where they are, no matter who they are.
