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

Promise victory of Allah subhanahu taharah is not something that Allah gives to us just like that

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

freely

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

without conditions attached to it.

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

And so for us to be granted the victory of Allah, there are certain conditions that we have to fulfill. And so let us look

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

at some of the steps and the means

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

that Allah has outlined in the Quran.

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

There are a condition for him to send his victory number one

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

which is the most obvious Eman and your clean

00:00:46--> 00:00:53

as Allah subhanahu Uttara told us in these areas about his promise victory Who are they for who is it for?

00:00:55--> 00:01:06

Alina Amman for the people of iman in the law how you deaf hero honey lady down and who can help can Elena nostril meaning

00:01:08--> 00:01:23

in Al Anon Su Su Lana one Latina M and all of these are yeah that talk about the promised victory of Allah. They are for the believing servants of Allah. And so this Eman is easy to claim.

00:01:24--> 00:01:32

But it really comes out in times of crisis in times of difficulty

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

as it happened on the day of zap

00:01:39--> 00:01:44

when all of these forces came and lead siege to Almudena.

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

When the believers saw him, their reaction was different than

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

the fake believers that were not the goon.

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

And also Allah subhana who were to Hannah tells us about another event.

00:02:07--> 00:02:21

When the enemy and the Munna goon started to spread rumors among the believers, that you don't stand a chance. Here comes Quraishi, Abu Sufyan with their army, you don't stand a chance.

00:02:23--> 00:02:32

What was the response of the true believers? A lady you know, called Allahumma, nurse in a nurse called Jana Rula. Whom, for whom?

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

When the people that Hippocrates said

00:02:38--> 00:02:47

that here are our forces coming, they have gathered their troops, you don't stand a chance for show home. So fear them.

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

What was the result?

00:02:53--> 00:02:57

What was the response of the true believers?

00:02:58--> 00:03:08

In Allah subhanho wa taala. For that the whom II man and walk all who has been Allah who are near metal key that only increased them in Eman.

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

It didn't shake them.

00:03:13--> 00:03:30

It didn't cause them to waver in fear, but rather it'll be increased them in Eman and what did they say? They said, Allah alone is sufficient for us. Allah alone is sufficient for us. He will come to our aid

00:03:31--> 00:03:39

and he is the best Disposer of affairs. And so this Eman also means our belief

00:03:41--> 00:03:46

that victory is something that only comes from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

This is part of your Eman

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

to believe

00:03:52--> 00:04:00

that if we are victorious, where did that victory come from? It did not come from

00:04:01--> 00:04:27

help from others. It did not come because we were powerful. It did not come because we had the right weapons. No, it came as a result of Allah sending it. This is part of our iman because Allah subhanahu wa taala he says woman nostru laminine dilla Nasir victory only comes from Allah. When did Allah reveal this? Imagine?

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

Right after the day of better

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

when the Muslims were victorious

00:04:36--> 00:04:41

not once did Allah subhana Hua to attribute their victory on the day of murder.

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

To the efforts of the Muslims, not wanting the Quran.

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

Why?

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

Allah subhana who had to hunt I wanted to teach the Muslims a lesson

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

that if and whenever you are victorious, it's not because of your own efforts and your own

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

The power, but rather, it's because Allah aided you. Victory only comes from Allah. And when Allah grants you victory, no one can come in the way of it.

00:05:15--> 00:05:36

In surah Kumala, who then our hollyburn ACOEM if Allah comes to your aid, if Allah that gives you victory, that no one can overpower you. But Allah also says, what he familia en su comunidad, who will grant you victory after that. We're in your huddlecam familia en su community.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

And if he betrays you, if ALLAH turns away from you and does not grant you victory,

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

then who will grant you victory after that?

00:05:49--> 00:06:03

And that's why Allah ends off by saying, while Allah He fell, yet our killing me known. So let the believers put their trust in Allah. So that the believers put their trust in Allah and Allah alone.

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

And that is why we notice

00:06:07--> 00:06:18

that the true believers, whenever they face off their enemy in battle, as Allah tells us in the Quran, what do they say? They turn to Allah.

00:06:20--> 00:06:27

They turn to Allah and Allah alone, because they know that victory is in his hands alone.

00:06:28--> 00:06:43

They turn to Allah subhana Hua to add one that kind of hola whom He called who? Wrote benefi Leonard Zulu benna what is Serafina? V Marina? What's a bit a coda mana Juan sadhana? Hello, Camila Catherine.

00:06:44--> 00:06:54

The only statement was when they saw their enemy. The only statement was, Oh Allah, forgive us our sins.

00:06:55--> 00:06:59

Forgive us our sins, because they know

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

that defeat comes as a result of what we do as a result of our sins. And then they ask Allah to make their feet firm. And to grant them victory over their enemy.

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

Among the steps and the means,

00:07:19--> 00:07:28

that brings us the victory of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is Returning, returning to the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:07:31--> 00:07:45

Returning to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala submitting to Allah and His Messenger, as individuals, as communities, as nations. And so when we look at our own map

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

and we look at our history,

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

we find that the reason for our defeat,

00:07:55--> 00:08:04

it all goes back and boils down to one thing and that is becoming distanced from our deen

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

slowly and gradually moving away from the commandments of Allah

00:08:13--> 00:08:24

from implementing the deen of Allah in our lives, and in our communities and in our nations. And usually this is associated with

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

becoming more and more attached to the dunya.

00:08:31--> 00:08:46

Becoming distanced from the deen of Allah and moving closer and closer to becoming attached to the dunya and ALLAH SubhanA Hua data reminds the believers that that and that alone

00:08:47--> 00:08:50

was the reason for their loss on the day of orphans.

00:08:51--> 00:08:56

On the day of or hurt, imagine these are the Sahaba Robbie Allahu Allah home

00:08:57--> 00:09:18

and the best of mankind is among them Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and yet Allah subhanho wa Taala says, had either official tomb, what enters the tomb Phil Emery, what are sorry to mimbar Dima are welcome to Boone men coming up to dunya Amin Kumi retool era,

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

until

00:09:21--> 00:09:30

when your power and your strength started to weaken. And you started to dispute over the matter. Those archers who were placed on the hill.

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

Allah says

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

they disobeyed after they were commanded to remain station. And they saw what was beloved to their hearts. They saw the spoils of war. They wanted to go down and collect those spoils of war. Their hearts were attached to the dunya. Allah says among you are those who love the dunya and among you are those who love to ask Iran if you

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

Mr. Ruda, Roby Allahu Allah and

00:10:02--> 00:10:07

he says, I never imagined that there were among us the sahaba.

00:10:09--> 00:10:14

Those who had preferred the dunya over the afternoon, until Allah revealed this idea.

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:10:18--> 00:10:22

becoming attached to the dunya is among the causes

00:10:24--> 00:10:36

for having the victory of Allah delayed and suspended, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also told us that there will come a time when our enemies

00:10:37--> 00:10:41

will gather their forces against us and will eat up eat us up.

00:10:44--> 00:10:51

And the only solution is as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, la Yun zero who had

00:10:53--> 00:11:03

had todo de rue de la de Unicom. Allah will not remove that humiliation from you until you return to your deen.

00:11:05--> 00:11:27

So my dear brothers and sisters, sometimes we tend to look elsewhere. And we tend to put the blame on our problems and our losses and our defeats on the others. Whereas we should be looking in the mirror and be pointing at our own selves. As Allah subhana wa Tada reminded to companions

00:11:28--> 00:11:31

as Allah reminded the Companions

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

again on the day of

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

our alumna or sorbet co movida.

o alumna or saw that come musi button, call the sabe to meet li ha, quantum Anahata hada, called Who among the unfussy come.

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

The Muslims, when they suffered that loss on the day of

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

when they saw these casualties, 70 of the Sahaba were slain.

00:12:07--> 00:12:16

And the asks Where did this come from? Why has this happened? Where is the victory of Allah? Allah says, it is because of what you yourselves have done.

00:12:18--> 00:12:22

It is because of what you yourselves had done.

00:12:24--> 00:12:29

Among the steps to achieving the victory of Allah.

00:12:31--> 00:12:36

Among the means of achieving the victory of Allah is championing championing

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

the deen of Allah.

00:12:40--> 00:12:43

As Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you Hillary.

00:12:45--> 00:12:53

Yeah, you Hillary Rahman who in turn Sue Allah has also come. When you submit Akadama calm. Oh you who believe

00:12:54--> 00:12:58

all you who believe if you champion the deen of Allah.

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

If you stand up for Allah and His religion, then he will grant you victory and he will make your feet firm. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala gave the Muslims victory through our history.

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

When they were

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

standing up for Allah, when they were

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

standing up for the deen of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:13:29--> 00:13:34

And he took that away from them when they stood down

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

and no longer

00:13:38--> 00:13:42

had any place for the deen of Allah in their lives.

00:13:45--> 00:13:52

And so let us look at ourselves. Where do we prioritize the deen of Allah in our lives?

00:13:54--> 00:14:10

We have to stop blaming others and start with ourselves. Everyone has a responsibility. Yes, the government's have their responsibilities. But we shouldn't point the fingers at them alone and forget about our own selves.

00:14:11--> 00:14:24

Where do you stand when it comes to the deen of Allah, standing up for her, implementing it in your life, giving Dawa to it, commending the good forbidding the evil.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

And finally, among the steps that lead to the victory of Allah and among the means of victory that Allah subhanahu wa Tada has outlined in the Quran is preparing physically for our enemies as Allah subhana wa Tada says, what I do doesn't matter to me. When you read the appeal highly to Hebrew gonna be here. I don't want Allah he will I do welcome and prepare for them. Prepare against your enemies. Cavalry

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

Horses. This is military preparation. And so if it was horses and spears and swords in the past today, it is in the form of armies, and military weaponry of jets of tanks of guns and so on so forth. Allah subhana wa Tada says, so that you strike terror in the hearts of your enemy, with your show of force. And so we have to do what we can. And then after that, put our reliance our telecoil in Allah subhana, who were to Hannah. And so an example of that, again, going back to the Battle of Zab,

00:15:44--> 00:16:07

or the Battle of the Trench, when these forces came and laid siege to Medina. Yes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam believed in the victory of Allah, and he knew that Allah would come to their aid, but he still took the means. And so he consulted his companions. And as a result, they dug that trench.

00:16:09--> 00:16:32

They dug that trench, they did not say that let's just sit here and wait for the victory of Allah. No, they prepared and did everything they could, after that, they put their trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. At the same time, we cannot think the opposite. We cannot think that as long as we have military power,

00:16:33--> 00:16:53

as long as we have the material means then that is what will bring us victory. No, we have to balance the two. And so Allah subhana wa Tada also reminds the Muslims, that you are numbers and your power, your military power

00:16:54--> 00:17:04

is of no value. If you put your trust in that alone, well, yo, my name is Roger bet calm Katra to come to Liniang communtiy

00:17:06--> 00:17:23

after the conquest of Mecca, after the Muslims were victorious, and all of these tribes were entering into Islam, and the Muslims went to fight a battle, the battle of who name and they were impressed with their large numbers for the first time they had Oh number their enemy

00:17:25--> 00:17:46

and yet they suffered a loss. Again, Why did Allah allow that to happen? Allah wanted to teach them a lesson, that look your victory comes from Allah alone, have all the military might and power but that alone is not going to bring you victory. And so, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

what we have seen,

00:17:51--> 00:18:27

what we have seen in the recent events is that the powers to be in the world today, they do not respect what they coin as human rights or international humanitarian laws or the laws of war. These are empty slogans. But what they do respect and what they do fear is if the Muslims have a show of force, and if they have in their hands, armies and weapons, that is when

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

they will think twice about what they are doing today.

00:18:34--> 00:18:39

BarakAllahu li Walakum Villacorta and lawI whenever anyone can be Murphy he mean it would be

00:19:38--> 00:19:53

Although we associate Victory, with military victory, victory in this dunya victory against our enemies and the defeat of our enemy, that is not the only victory

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

nor is it the ultimate victory. So this is something that

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

We Muslims have to understand, and we have to understand very well. And that's why this is something

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

that the first and the best of generations of the Muslims understood very well.

00:20:14--> 00:20:31

Yes, they strived hard to be victorious over their enemies on the battlefield in this dunya. However, they understood very well, that the true victory the ultimate victory, is the victory of principles.

00:20:33--> 00:20:52

They understood very, very well. That the true and ultimate victory is living and dying as a Muslim, steadfast upon your deen meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala and there with Allah being granted

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

your victory.

00:20:55--> 00:21:06

And that's why throughout the Quran, what does he say? subhanho wa Taala was early confocal Halim was early confocal morphine with early curl for those who allow him

00:21:08--> 00:21:40

with early confocal Kebede that is a true victory. That is the Greek victory. That is the clear victory. What victory is this referring to? It's referring to the victory in the sight of Allah when you meet Allah, being victorious, by being saved from the hellfire and by being rewarded by Allah subhana who had to hurt him the day that you meet him. And so my dear brothers and sisters, this is why

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

so many

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

are killed visa vie Lila.

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

And that's why Allah raises their rank.

00:21:53--> 00:22:09

They mean they may be defeated in the dunya but in the sight of Allah, they are victorious. Even if they have lost their lives. They have a special status with Allah they are the shahada and so they are the true Victors

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

I do really

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

well, war

00:22:29--> 00:22:30
