when our Villa
sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi woman
warming up rasuluh circa 1000 avina another
My dear brothers and sisters
not too long ago
a group of people got together
and summons others inviting others
to a feast
saying Come, come,
come and join us
in this dish of food
and so they came
looking at that delicious food
taking from it
what satisfies him or her?
My dear brothers and sisters.
is something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam prophesied
1400 years ago years ago
and so in the habit of so bear with the Allahu
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
come on today to Allah casati
he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that the nation,
the civilization, the states of the world
are soon to summon one another
to attack you attack you.
And then he explained how
who are sitting around, about to eat and they invite others.
They invite others to share their dish.
And so some of the companions they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
will it be because
of our small, low numbers at that time.
So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied and said
what I enjoy
What I have to defend, you know,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied and said, No, no, no, you won't be small in number on that day.
But rather you will be many, many.
Your numbers will be many, many
Your population will be high.
But you will be
like this comes the rubbish
and then he still along with it
and the loss of kind of which
will take away
fear of you from the hearts of your enemy.
And then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
and a loss
into your heart. So, the companions they asked the Prophet sallallahu
Ole Miss messenger of Allah, what is this one?
So, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he explained it
in the Arabic language basically means weakness.
What is this weakness, messenger of Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
it is your love,
your attachment for the dounia.
And at the same time, your fear of death, your fear of death, my dear brothers and sisters, this pretty much sums up the state of Alabama today.
And so, my dear brothers and sisters this past week,
we saw many protests in India.
Muslims protesting a bill
that was basically aimed at stripping hundreds and 1000s and millions of Muslims from their citizenship
and their right to live as citizens in India,
while granting non Muslim refugees who come from outside of India, who belong to other religions, Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, whatever it may be giving them an exception, granting them citizenship. But whoever cannot prove their citizenship, if they happen to be Muslim,
then we stripped them of that.
Not only that,
but a few months ago,
they started building a
Similar to the camp
that we are hearing about in China.
They are building these camps in India, to how these millions of Muslims who have been stripped stripped of their students,
my dear brothers and sisters,
this only happened
after this anti muslim Indian Government saw
their neighboring country
and how they are free to do the same to their Muslim population in China, China, in Burma,
and yet, they're able to get away with
it is this humiliation
and weakness of the Muslims
that no enemies of Islam are taking advantage of today.
And so they're attacking us. They're taking away our rights and our freedom.
While the world is silent,
and more so the Muslim world
those Muslim countries are able to do something and yet they're
not doing a single thing single thing. My dear brothers and sisters.
It was also a few months ago, that the same
anti Islamic Indian Government
continued the plight
of our Muslim brothers and sisters in Kashmir,
of their autonomy
and making Kashmir just like another Indian state. Although it is a state that is occupied by my dear brothers and sisters.
This is nothing new, nothing new. But rather,
it is part of a cycle of a cycle that continues.
That started decades ago rather, centuries ago
when the enemies of Islam saw
the weakness of
When they saw our humiliation,
and our weakness, and so they took advantage of that.
They saw our inability to defend ourselves.
They saw one thing common, and that was that we had become distanced from our dealer.
We had become distanced from our dealer
and the book was sent to us.
So we became weekend. And so they attacked us colonizing our land, stealing our wealth and our resources, dividing us into small nations and states and then making sure
we do not return back to our Deen because they knew that that is the source of our power our minds
and our glory.
Hakeem aku Kohli has
while he said he didn't
what to do
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
Wash, Ella, Ella.
Mohammedan rasuluh sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi.
My dear brothers and sisters.
This is a state of our own
a state of weakness,
a state a state of humiliation.
That is not something
unknown to any Muslim today.
And it's a cycle that repeats itself.
And so, the question that many
is what is the solution?
What is the way out for our own?
What is the weight of this week's state of humiliation?
My dear brothers and sisters
The solution was mentioned by the prophet sallallahu.
And so, one example of that is
in which he says
What are we?
What are we?
What are rock
lay on zero.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that when when
when you engage in aleena which is basically a type of forbidden transaction. It is basically an example of Riba
when you engage in that
and you follow for take hold
of the tale of cow and you are satisfied with agriculture, all of these are examples, but becoming attached and being satisfied with what we have
indulging in it and then
and on top of that,
you first say
When this happens
when this happens, Allah Subhana Allah will send upon you a humiliation
that he will not live with from you until
until you return to your
and so my dear brothers and sisters, the cause of how our humiliation is the fact that we have abandoned our Deen look at the Muslim Ummah today and look at how far and distant we are as an owner, from the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is enough is enough, there is sufficient
of a reason for why we are in the state that we are in today.
On top of that,
there that we have not only engaged in the journey,
but have become attached to it
we can never give it up.
And this is something that was kind of what Allah warned us from
adding more than one place in the Quran.
Allah subhanho wa Taala
becoming attached to dunya and abandoning firing in his car. What's the link between the two between the two philosophies kind of what Allah says yeah, you
what is the matter with
this is a loss of addressing
Oh, you who believe? What is the matter with you
that when that when the call is me, March 4 in the in the cause of the law.
It's occurred to me
that when this call is made, to set out and march in the path of a law,
that you that you
attached to the earth, you remain attached to your dunya
bill hayati dunia
Are you satisfied with this worldly life.
he declared the reality
of the dunya compared to the
of this worldly life that you have become attached to
is nothing but small as compared to this thing that you are attached to, it's temporary, it's soon going to come to an end, as compared to the athlete that is everlasting.
And so my dear brothers and sisters,
who are attached to decide
to go out
and give up
because that is the essence
the law. That is the essence
of fighting the cause of a watch.
No matter which kind of jihad it is, including defending the honor of the Muslims and their land.
And so, when this call is mean, people
they drop out under
and they remember
is what I am attached to.
And if I leave it, then I will lose it.
And that's what causes them to refrain from marching forward as Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in this.
And so Allah Subhana which Allah He says,
and so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us
that the solution is,
in abandoning this dunya or becoming less attached to it
and becoming more attached to the asset
as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned,
what is this what is what is this humiliation and his weakness? It is
it is his love for the dunya
and disliked for death, because that is the essence of giving us
when a person
he goes, and he marks for answering the call of a loss of kind of who he is, he is basically announcing that He has given his life for a loss of kindness. So he doesn't hate death. He does not dislike the death, death, but rather, he wants. But for what, for the sake of a lawsuit.
And the second solution is to return back to our de
todo de Rue de la de,
until you return to religion, this humiliation will never be lifted from you. And so my dear brothers and sisters,
the ball is basically in our hand.
And the solution is in our house. In no law, hello, you
to see him, we hear this D in D O, Allah subhanho wa Taala will never change the condition of a people until,
until they themselves change their own conditions.
day in day out, we hear that the solution is in going back to Rd. in going back to the fundamentals. And so that's where it starts, my dear brother.
It's not complicated. It's a simple solution, you return back to your dean, holding on to your dean, in every aspect of life, as individuals, as societies and groups. As long as you do that, then the promise of a wasp
is to grant you victory, and to lift this humiliation from you and to put back the fear of us back in the heart of our enemy, the fear that they had of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his companions, that before he even reached the battlefield,
that fear was cast into their heart.
So we asked him
to bring this book
to lift this weakness and this humiliation
from the Muslims around the world. We ask Allah Subhana who wants
to protect and preserve the Muslims wherever they be, and to protect their honor and to protect their wealth. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant victory to his believing slaves. We ask Allah subhana wa tada
to forgive us and to forgive them their sins and our shortcomings.
