00:06:34--> 00:06:38

on the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

Entered Mecca

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

human fat

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

on the day in which

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

the conquest of Makkah occurred.

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

He entered Mecca and he approached the Kaaba

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

and after destroying all of the idols in the kava

00:07:08--> 00:07:11

as the 1000s of Muslims were surrounding him

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

he looked

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

among his companions

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

and he was looking for one individual.

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

And so he asked, Where is below

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

this is among

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

the notables and the leaders of Koresh.

00:07:45--> 00:07:52

And among even the best of the companions, Abu Bakr, and humor and the others.

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

He's looking for one individual Billa robiola who

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

he asked where is beloved

00:08:07--> 00:08:12

and to Al Abbas, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:08:13--> 00:08:20

he saw Bilal and he said oh Bilal, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is looking for you.

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

So Vidal approached in front of all of the other companions,

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

and went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:08:35--> 00:08:40

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, Bilal, come with me.

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

Come with me.

00:08:44--> 00:08:47

As I go inside of the Kaaba,

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

to be the first to pray in it.

00:08:52--> 00:08:58

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

00:09:03--> 00:09:04


00:09:07--> 00:09:10

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

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

The I saw you

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

on the day

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

when you were tortured,

00:09:20--> 00:09:23

and no one else was tortured for Islam besides you.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

And so it was because

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

of his sacrifice to Islam

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

that elevated him

00:09:40--> 00:09:45

to be and to receive this honor

00:09:46--> 00:09:52

that none of the other companions had the privilege of, but it didn't end there.

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

After they came out

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

He told Bilal to get up and climb the cabin,

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

and to give the other hand

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

from the top of the cabin.

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

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

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

to call

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

from on top of the cabin,

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

my dear brothers and sisters

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

this privilege and this honor

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

that Bilal rhodiola, who

00:10:39--> 00:10:44

received being an ex slave

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

and an African

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

had nothing to do

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

with the color of his skin,

00:10:53--> 00:10:59

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

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

But rather,

00:11:03--> 00:11:14

it was because of his Eman and his Taqwa that translated into sacrifice, and into action.

00:11:20--> 00:11:25

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

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

is nothing but that.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

And that's because when Allah subhanho wa Taala created us,

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

He created us to be

00:11:38--> 00:11:42

of different colors of different ethnic backgrounds.

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

But the one thing that he means

00:11:49--> 00:11:52

to be the distinguishing factor among us

00:11:55--> 00:12:02

is his consciousness is his Taqwa is our piety, our righteousness.

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

And so Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:12:09--> 00:12:19

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Allaha la Yan Lu E la Suri come, what are either Sammy come?

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

Wala Kim Young guru, Isla Matthew Kulu

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

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:12:30--> 00:12:46

that Allah subhanahu Attallah 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 what he looks at

00:12:47--> 00:12:57

is that your hearts what is in your hearts and he looks at your deals. These are the two things that Allah subhanho wa Taala looks at

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

and so

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

when Allah subhanho wa Taala created us

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

Yes, He created us

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

to be from different races from different ethnic backgrounds.

00:13:19--> 00:13:22

But that is not what he permitted us

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

to be superior because of

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

yeah you Hannah so inner Hola.

00:13:33--> 00:13:46

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

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

know, here Allah is referring to all of us.

00:13:52--> 00:13:58

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

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

from a male and a female.

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

Watch your show Ruben Wakanda ILA

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

and we made you

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

to be

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

peoples and try things.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

For what purpose

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


00:14:25--> 00:14:27

to get to know one another.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

Not so that one

00:14:31--> 00:14:35

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

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala concludes by saying

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

in a Kurama Allah He

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

that almost no noble of you.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

The most noble of you are those who have the most Taqwa

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

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

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

are Muslim can be

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

of a different ethnic background and you.

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

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

00:15:22--> 00:15:26

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

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

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

00:15:33--> 00:15:39

But rather what Bond's us together is our iman and our Islam.

00:15:41--> 00:15:41

And so

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

a Muslim

00:15:46--> 00:15:51

to Muslims from different ethnic backgrounds are closer to one another

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

than a Muslim

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

who may share the same blood as a disbeliever.

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

And so what Bond's us is our deen

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

and our Islam.

00:16:06--> 00:16:10

And this is what Islam came to teach us.

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

My dear brothers and sisters, it is this

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

that elevated

00:16:18--> 00:16:26

certain people over others, what is it that caused the likes of Bilal, and Souhei

00:16:27--> 00:16:41

and Sal man and Pharisee, to become elevated over the likes of Abuja, Hill, and Abu Lahab, who in those days, were considered the most noble of people,

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

the best of individuals.

00:16:45--> 00:16:57

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

00:16:58--> 00:17:13

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.

00:17:14--> 00:17:16

And it came to abolish

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

ideologies like nationalism.

00:17:20--> 00:17:35

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

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

to become scholars,

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

to become educators,

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

in all walks and fields of life.

00:17:49--> 00:17:54

And yet, they came from all different ethnic backgrounds.

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

What elevated them

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

is nothing but this Diem.

00:18:01--> 00:18:05

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

00:18:07--> 00:18:08


00:18:09--> 00:18:13

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

00:18:14--> 00:18:26

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

00:18:27--> 00:18:44

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?

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

My dear brothers and sisters,

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


00:18:50--> 00:18:58

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

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

is becoming rampant,

00:19:03--> 00:19:07

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

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

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

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

that Islam came to abolish racism?

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

When you look at many Muslims today,

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

and how they are involved in racism,

00:19:25--> 00:19:34

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

00:19:35--> 00:19:56

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

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

by its scripture,

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

While we're hola unfussy comm I will validate anyone in

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

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

Stand firm for justice.

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

Stand firm for justice as witnesses

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

as witnesses of the truth for Allah,

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

even if it be against yourselves,

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

or your relatives.

00:22:24--> 00:22:29

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

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

And as we see the unfolding events,

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

south of the border

00:22:43--> 00:22:46

where of movement, a movement has started

00:22:48--> 00:22:51

to call for the justice of the killing

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

of George Floyd.

00:22:55--> 00:23:02

It is important for Muslims today as we witness these events,

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

to keep in mind

00:23:06--> 00:23:12

several points related to justice and standing up for justice.

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

The first point is

00:23:18--> 00:23:20

that justice

00:23:22--> 00:23:29

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

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

and to command the believers to stand up for

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

as mentioned in this idea.

00:23:39--> 00:23:48

And so, Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded justice and did not specify it. In the La Jolla Moodle villa.

00:23:49--> 00:24:02

Allah commands Justice, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a hadith could see a was a parent who went to Allah says, Yeah, you daddy, in the haram to Volmer Allah enough see

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

what your child to whom who held Rahman pain

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

fell out of Allah.

00:24:09--> 00:24:18

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

00:24:19--> 00:24:26

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

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

And so justice

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

is a universal moral value that Islam came to uphold

00:24:37--> 00:24:37

and to command

00:24:39--> 00:24:47

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

00:24:50--> 00:24:56

And what we learn from one of the events in the Sierra in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

is how

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

If he was keen to uphold justice, even if

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

it had nothing to do with Islam.

00:25:09--> 00:25:21

And so we see this in the event, which occurred before the prophethood of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. And that was a helpful follow

00:25:22--> 00:25:30

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

00:25:34--> 00:25:43

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

00:25:46--> 00:25:49

And so he called on the leaders of Quraysh.

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

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

00:25:55--> 00:25:57

So the story goes,

00:25:58--> 00:26:05

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

00:26:06--> 00:26:14

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

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

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

00:26:28--> 00:26:35

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

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

And I would never prefer

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

the best read camels

00:26:42--> 00:26:48

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

00:26:49--> 00:26:54

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

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

meaning after Islam was revealed.

00:26:58--> 00:27:20

And if I was called, to witness such an alliance, without Allah subhanahu Attallah, commanding 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.

00:27:22--> 00:27:26

And regardless of who injustice is being done to.

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


00:27:32--> 00:27:35

justice is a concept

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

there is of different kinds

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

and different levels.

00:27:43--> 00:27:48

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

00:27:50--> 00:27:59

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

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

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

00:28:06--> 00:28:12

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

00:28:14--> 00:28:19

there are the rights between us and our Creator, Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:28:23--> 00:28:33

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

00:28:35--> 00:29:00

And so, look man, he says to his son, what is called a local man will leave any what is called look man who leibny He, we are born a year later to Shrek Billa. When look man said to his son, oh my son, do not associate partners with Allah in a shield color of who you are when indeed, Sheikh is a great injustice.

00:29:01--> 00:29:10

So the greatest injustice is to associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala let us not forget that.

00:29:12--> 00:29:15

So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked,

00:29:16--> 00:29:29

Yasuda Allah are you on the album? Which sin is greatest? What did he reply with? Did he say to murder someone is the greatest sin.

00:29:30--> 00:29:38

To commit Zina is the greatest sin. To drink disobey your parents is the greatest sin to steal is the greatest sin. No.

00:29:40--> 00:29:45

He said and tagit Allah Allah Allah He needs then Wahoo or Hanukkah,

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

describing the form of injustice

00:29:51--> 00:29:56

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

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

to attribute to Allah a partner

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

arrival, when it is He Who created you?

00:30:05--> 00:30:08

So What greater injustice could there be?

00:30:09--> 00:30:12

Then to claim that Allah has a partner

00:30:14--> 00:30:19

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

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

and gave you everything.

00:30:24--> 00:30:25


00:30:27--> 00:30:31

when standing up for justice

00:30:33--> 00:30:34

and calling

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

for justice

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

in the current situation,

00:30:41--> 00:30:45

and joining the movement known as

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

Black Lives,

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

the movement, Black Lives Matter.

00:30:53--> 00:30:57

And the social justice warriors, it is important to remember

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

that such movements

00:31:03--> 00:31:06

they go against many Islamic principles.

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

And they oppose Islam on many levels.

00:31:15--> 00:31:19

And so we have to remember that, although we support them

00:31:20--> 00:31:27

in calling for justice, it needs to be restricted to that, and limited to that,

00:31:28--> 00:31:32

and not to join them uncritically.

00:31:33--> 00:31:45

And to join them wholesale. And to call for everything that they call for. This is something that we need to remember and pay attention to. For three,

00:31:46--> 00:31:48

Islam stance

00:31:50--> 00:31:54

on how to deal with injustice is very clear.

00:31:55--> 00:32:00

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

00:32:03--> 00:32:07

Law you hit Bula, hula Jarabe su ylonen zulum.

00:32:08--> 00:32:09

Allah says

00:32:10--> 00:32:14

that Allah does not like Allah does not love for someone

00:32:16--> 00:32:37

to openly proclaim something, and to show except for those who are dealt with unjustly, the oppressed, they can raise their voice, and even that has to be limited. And so what we see today of the looting

00:32:38--> 00:32:39


00:32:40--> 00:32:41

the anarchy

00:32:42--> 00:32:44

that is taking place.

00:32:45--> 00:32:47

This is something that Islam is clear on,

00:32:48--> 00:32:52

where the oppressed should respond within the limits

00:32:54--> 00:33:01

that Allah subhanho wa Taala has allowed and that His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has allowed.

00:33:02--> 00:33:08

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

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

In like,

00:33:13--> 00:33:14


00:33:15--> 00:33:16

let us not forget

00:33:19--> 00:33:21

that the injustice

00:33:23--> 00:33:26

at the institutional level that we have seen,

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

south of the border

00:33:30--> 00:33:35

is only one episode, and only one example,

00:33:36--> 00:33:40

in a series of episodes

00:33:41--> 00:33:42


00:33:43--> 00:33:47

are not restricted to the confines and the borders

00:33:48--> 00:33:53

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

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

of the American government goes beyond.

00:33:59--> 00:34:20

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 map over the past many decades, the transgression

00:34:21--> 00:34:36

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.

00:34:37--> 00:34:39

So what we need to remember

00:34:41--> 00:34:42


00:34:44--> 00:34:47

that tyranny has its limits.

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

And oppression

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

has its limit.

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

Anyone who reads history

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

will realize one thing

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

And that is

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

that the eventual end

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

of the oppressors

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

and the people involved in tyranny

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

is that they come crumbling down

00:35:18--> 00:35:21

in front of the eyes of the oppressed.

00:35:22--> 00:35:29

This is a Sunnah of Allah subhana who were to Allah, throughout history, going beyond

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

our own Islamic history.

00:35:33--> 00:35:42

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

00:35:44--> 00:35:51

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

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

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

00:35:55--> 00:36:15

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 deluded into thinking

00:36:17--> 00:36:23

that oppression and injustice is actually right. And fear.

00:36:24--> 00:36:29

And so that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he sins

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

the punishment of the oppressors.

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

And this is why

00:36:39--> 00:36:40

they know Joshi,

00:36:41--> 00:36:42

who embraced Islam,

00:36:44--> 00:36:49

one of the things that he was famous one of his quotes, that he was famous for,

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

he said

00:36:52--> 00:36:55

Al Mool Cuyamaca Halol kufr Wallah, your

00:36:58--> 00:37:03

power and authority can last

00:37:04--> 00:37:07

if it is upon Cooper and disbelief,

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

but it will never last.

00:37:11--> 00:37:23

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

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

and so

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

even Taymiyah he says,

00:37:35--> 00:37:36

he says

00:37:38--> 00:37:41

in Allah you clean Abdullah Al cafiero

00:37:43--> 00:37:46

Allah hola de la wala you clean

00:37:48--> 00:37:50

a dolla avoiding almost.

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

This is the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:37:55--> 00:37:59

He says, The Allah subhanahu wa taala me allow

00:38:02--> 00:38:03

a disbelieving nation

00:38:05--> 00:38:10

to survive to flourish as long as it is just

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

and he will never allow

00:38:16--> 00:38:19

a Muslim nation to flourish

00:38:20--> 00:38:21


00:38:22--> 00:38:23

it is oppressive.

00:38:25--> 00:38:30

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

00:38:31--> 00:38:34

Until our very time today.

00:38:36--> 00:38:41

We're oppressive nations and authoritative regimes

00:38:43--> 00:38:49

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

00:38:53--> 00:39:04

Whereas a disbelieving nation if it is based upon justice, it will last and it will flourish. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala set this dunya

00:39:05--> 00:39:11

upon this universal value of an idol of justice,

00:39:12--> 00:39:32

we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant us insight into the deen 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.
