00:01:30--> 00:01:31

Then how are we

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

about

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

not too long ago

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

a group of people came together

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

around the feast.

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

And they invited others to join them.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

And so they came around

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

everyone sitting there

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

and eating and enjoying this feast.

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

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

as narrated by Toba and not only Allahu

00:02:10--> 00:02:18

you Shaku l omen and third eye leikam Kermit toda

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

to Allah Kosaki her.

00:02:22--> 00:02:27

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, soon, very soon

00:02:29--> 00:02:35

the nations and the peoples are going to summon one another. They're going to come together

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

to attack you. Just as a group of people, they come together

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

around a feast,

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

inviting one another, to join

00:02:50--> 00:02:58

their dish. So the companions are the Allahu Anhu when they heard this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of them he said,

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

Well, maybe I could let him know who y'all need needed?

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

He said, O Messenger of Allah.

00:03:07--> 00:03:11

Will this be because we are a few in number on that day.

00:03:13--> 00:03:20

Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is prophesizing something, something that will happen in the future.

00:03:21--> 00:03:29

So this companion wandered. Perhaps the reason why we'll be attacked in this way, is because we are few in number.

00:03:30--> 00:03:37

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam says, Bell and Tomiyama Eden kitty,

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

while I can look on the hooter Kahuta is saying,

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

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, No,

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

rather you will be many on that day.

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

You won't be outnumbered.

00:03:53--> 00:03:58

You will be huge numbers. However, you will be

00:04:01--> 00:04:05

like the foam that travels

00:04:06--> 00:04:20

along with the floodwaters. When the floodwaters come, they carry the scum and the foam, that form that you see on top of it. It seems as if it's huge, but it's worth nothing.

00:04:21--> 00:04:36

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, Well, I NZ and Allah Who means who do means who do reality I do we come Elma habit I mean come while I Acalypha no law who view your Kulu will be vehicle will be common one.

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

at a loss of Hannah who were to Hydra

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

he will take away

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

fear of you from the hearts of your enemies.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Your enemies will look at you and will no longer fear you. And Allah subhanahu wa taala

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

I will throw a weapon into your hearts.

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

weakness.

00:05:06--> 00:05:12

So one of the companions he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, ya rasool Allah wamalwa him

00:05:13--> 00:05:25

or messenger of Allah What is this when the Allah will cast into our hearts and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He said, But dunya Makara here to know

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

Love for your dunya

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

love for this temporary world

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

and dislike for death,

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

this liking,

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

disliking going on to the next world, the Hereafter.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

whatever suffering we see

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

of the Muslims today

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

there is only one episode

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

of a long recurring

00:06:13--> 00:06:17

event that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam foretold.

00:06:19--> 00:06:26

And so what we see today, whether it be in Palestine in Gaza or LA or elsewhere in the Muslim world,

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

it is nothing new.

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

But only a cycle that continues from the time

00:06:35--> 00:06:56

our enemies noticed our weakness and took advantage of it. And they noticed our inability to stand up to defend ourselves, colonizing our lands, stealing our riches and our resources, dividing us into small nations and states.

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

The current situation of the Muslims is as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prophesized.

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

And so it's not something surprising. But rather, what is shocking

00:07:12--> 00:07:26

is that we Muslims, we don't learn a lesson from it. What is shocking, is not that it is happening. But rather, what's shocking, is that we don't learn a lesson from it. And we don't take heed

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

ALLAH SubhanA, who were to add,

00:07:33--> 00:07:38

he governs this universe. And he governs.

00:07:42--> 00:07:48

What happens among his servants, whether it be individuals or whether it be entire nations

00:07:49--> 00:07:52

and we have to believe in the concept

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

of cause and effect

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

that if we are suffering the way we are today, then it has to have a cause.

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

There has to be a reason for it. It cannot be happening just like that without a reason.

00:08:10--> 00:08:23

And so it's something that we did. It's something that we are responsible for, that we are ignoring, until this very day, and that's why things are not changing.

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it clear

00:08:33--> 00:08:39

that Allah will cast this into our hearts and he explained it to be our attachment

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

to this dunya

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

and preferring it

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

over the akhira

00:08:49--> 00:09:11

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

Be conscious of Allah,

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

fear His punishment

00:10:45--> 00:10:53

and let each and every single soul examine and look at what he has sent for his tomorrow.

00:10:55--> 00:11:00

What is your tomorrow? Your tomorrow is not here in this dunya

00:11:01--> 00:11:18

because that soon, very soon is going to come to an end. But rather your tomorrow that Allah is talking about here is your Acura. When was the last time you sat down? To ask yourself? Am I ready to meet Allah in the state that I am in today?

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

What have I put forward for that day in which

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

my deeds are going to be put on the scale?

00:11:30--> 00:11:42

If my good week if my good deeds away my bad deeds, I will be successful. But if my bad deeds outweigh my good deeds, then that's it. I'm doomed.

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

But your brothers and sisters

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

what is the solution

00:11:51--> 00:11:55

to this weak state of the Muslim ummah

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

as we see it today

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

in Marathi Allahu Allahu Allah.

00:12:04--> 00:12:09

He says, so may or to rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you're cool.

00:12:10--> 00:12:31

Either Turda Yeah, Tamil Ina? What has to be admirable? Baugher world we tune this surah what took too many jihad. Sal lot Allahu Allah you don't learn lion zero who had total G ru Isla de nikam.

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:12:36--> 00:12:42

When you engage in the INA transactions, a kind of transaction

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

that is based on your labor.

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

And

00:12:50--> 00:12:59

when you take hold of the tails of cows, and you are content with your agriculture, meaning

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

you're pleased with your dunya

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

and you're happy with it,

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

and you give up jihad in the path of Allah. What will Allah do?

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

Allah subhanahu wa to Allah will send upon you humiliation.

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

He will send upon you humiliation that will not go away until one thing

00:13:29--> 00:13:36

had todo de rue de la de Nukem until you return back to your deen

00:13:37--> 00:13:58

until you return back to Islam until you return to becoming committed to this Deen that you attribute yourselves to the cause of our humiliation is very simple. It is becoming attached to the dunya

00:13:59--> 00:14:11

and fearing death as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and so the solution is very simple. become attached to Allah and become attached to the hero

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

become attached to Allah and become attached

00:14:17--> 00:14:32

to what Allah has prepared for his believing servants, who sacrifice everything that they have for his pleasure. How do you expect other people who are attached to this dunya

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

to stand up

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

for our brothers and sisters

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

who are being massacred

00:14:44--> 00:14:53

and being slaughtered the way they are today? If we are attached to our dunya How do you expect there to be any men

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

who are going to defend the Muslims?

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

And so if we constantly

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

We hear that Israel has a right to defend itself, then don't we Muslims have a right to defend ourselves. We do and we don't need any permission for that. For it is

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

a God given permission.

00:15:17--> 00:15:42

The Allah subhanahu which Allah has given to us, and no one can take it away from our hands. But the question is, if this is the path we are it's men. Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, Yeah, you Hello, Dina and then Mariela can, either Akela como una de ser de la la. It's called tongue eel orb or over Eatonville. hayati, duniya Meenal

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

some amateur or higher to dunya Phil karate Illa Khalil O you who believe ALLAH is addressing us believers or you who believe what is the matter with you that when the call is made to march 4, in the path of Allah, that you remain firm to the ground. You don't want to get up.

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

You want to hold on to your dunya

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

this wealth that you have earned

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

on a lead on Bill hayati dunya. Amina.

00:16:19--> 00:16:23

Are you pleased and satisfied with this worldly life

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

that you are currently living over that era

00:16:28--> 00:16:33

from Amitabh will hayati dunya, fille de la Khalil, Allah is waking us up here.

00:16:34--> 00:16:39

If that is the case, that you are attached to this worldly life over the akhirah

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

the No, no.

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

This current life that you're living is small.

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

It's extremely small, and little compared to what awaits in that era.

00:16:59--> 00:17:07

And so, when someone is attached to his dunya, he fears anything that will come in between him

00:17:09--> 00:17:13

and the pleasures of the dunya that he is enjoying.

00:17:16--> 00:17:23

And that's why we see a huge contrast between us, and those who went before us.

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

Look at the lives of the companions Rhodiola who and whom?

00:17:30--> 00:17:46

Why is it that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them victory, not only in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But even more so after his death, until the Muslim empires stretched from east to west.

00:17:48--> 00:17:55

Why is it that their enemy feared them? Why is it that the Muslims had this glory

00:17:57--> 00:18:01

as opposed to what we are living as an alumna today?

00:18:03--> 00:18:10

It's because the standards in the eyes of that first generation were different

00:18:11--> 00:18:15

in terms of this dunya compared to the era

00:18:16--> 00:18:25

they understood very well, that we are here for a few years. We are here for a very temporary time.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

And soon, very soon,

00:18:28--> 00:18:45

we are meeting Allah subhanahu wa taala. And so they were willing to give up everything they had for the better reward that awaits them in the era. And so my dear brothers and sisters, the solution is in our hands.

00:18:46--> 00:18:50

The solution to change the state of the OMA starts with me and you.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

Let us not wait for anyone else.

00:18:56--> 00:19:01

We have to start at the grassroots level. We have to start with me and you

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

two things.

00:19:05--> 00:19:10

Number one, get rid of this attachment that we have for the dunya in our hearts. And number two,

00:19:11--> 00:19:21

return to our Dean as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and when I say returned to our deen, what I mean by that

00:19:22--> 00:19:26

is to become committed. Not to be a Muslim by name.

00:19:28--> 00:19:42

Not to be a part time Muslim, but rather to be a Muslim, committed to his Deen. So that requires sacrifice. That requires number one,

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

to make an honest effort to learn your deen. How are you going to practice your Diem? If you don't understand what's required of you? And so we need to seek knowledge of Aberdeen. Some of us we don't even know the bare minimum the basics

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

And then we need to return back to Allah subhana wa Tada with an honest heart returned back to him in Toba

00:20:09--> 00:20:16

in Allah, La EULA you don't have your home had you Allah you will not be unfussy him.

00:20:17--> 00:20:22

Allah subhanahu Uttara does not change the condition the state of a people

00:20:23--> 00:20:27

until they change what is in themselves.

00:20:30--> 00:20:31

He or Allah is saying

00:20:32--> 00:20:36

that he will not change the good condition

00:20:37--> 00:20:44

of the Muslims, when they were prosperous when they were victorious

00:20:46--> 00:21:19

in the time of the companions, once they reign the world, Allah will like change that good condition to a worse condition until they change what is in themselves. And unfortunately, that is what ended up happening. The Muslims slowly but surely started to change, becoming more and more distanced from there deem whether at the individual level or at the state level, it happened

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

and we can't do anything to stop what happened in the past. But what we can do

00:21:28--> 00:21:31

is to prevent it from continuing.
