In a hamdulillah Salatu, Salam ala alihi wa sahbihi wa ala No, but,
my brothers, I want to remind myself when you
very simple, but important matter, which is that
whenever we join a particular organization or you join a particular group
or you join a fraternity or whichever,
there are certain rules of belonging
there are some rules of belonging and there are some
signs of belonging.
So, if you look, if you look at the for example, the various fraternities in universities
you wear a fraternity tie or a T shirt or a hat or whatever, so, you belong to that fraternity, there are some rules in America they have sort of elaborate
what we call our tribal rituals. So, the way in which you shake you shake the hand and that tells the person that you are from that fraternity or there is some slogan that you speak or there's a ways of identifying, you know, this person is from this place.
So, also if you join an organization, then there are symbols of belonging to that organization.
let me say, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah sharika lahu Hashanah Mohammed Abu rasuluh, we have joined the organization of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which insha Allah Allah subhanaw taala will honor on the Day of Judgment.
So, therefore, the question I asked myself and you is what are the symbols of belonging to the soma in our lives?
Because the rule is this the rule is that if you belong to some place, there has to be some symbol of that right? Not even mentioned in the Quran in one is similar to like the color of Allah.
So, what are the colors of Allah
color off does not mean that this or that Allah so hunter knows village of discolored means the colors which show that you belong to Allah.
The colors which show and in colors again is a commonly understood thing you know, there are there are the colors of the country which is a flag that the color colors of whichever battalion or whichever regiment you belong to in an army. So you fly the colors of that particular regiment. So it tells you that you are from this regiment and not from that regiment and so on. So what is this color of Allah? What is this color of Muhammad Rasul Allah Saracen, it's not green or purple or saffron are not the kind of color hat you wear or color cap you wear. The color reverse to the character, color refers to the habits the color refers to the class of the individual.
What colors of Allah subhana wa Taala what colors are Muhammad Rasul? Allah says Allah, what symbols of belonging to the group of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Do we display in our lives?
Right? Allah subhanaw taala said that these are the people who are successful. These are the people who are the Hezbollah. They're not talking about his will or the political organization. We're talking about the Hezbollah from the Quran, the party of Allah, the group of Allah. homophone, these are the people who are successful. So what are the symbols of belonging to the oma of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam?
I will today and only with this torch and tomorrow on day after inshallah, we'll talk about what Allah subhanaw taala told us to do, and what is the benefit of that inshallah. But today, just the reflection, just a thought and say, let us reflect in our own lives and say, What is the symbol
which shows that I belong to the oma of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Yesterday, we got news, both sad and happy.
That one of our brothers in South Africa,
a young man he and his uncle went to,
they were fasting, obviously, they were driving to someplace.
They were driving to where they lived. And on the way they stopped in a place called McNally's work. They stopped there to get some food for the Iftar.
And it so happened that there was some two or three hooligans in that shop who started abusing this boy, because he had a beard.
And they started calling him terrorist and so on and so on. And that led to
Finally those people assaulting that boy,
the young man, and yesterday he passed away.
Sharif visa visa,
say three's a villa in a state of fasting.
Why? Because he displayed a symbol of belonging to the oma Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
I'm saying sad, happy because
sad, of course, somebody that is always sad, but happy because think about this, of course his father was father, whatever is written, but I'm just saying that you're only speaking in a manner of speaking he might say, Well, you know, if he did not have a beard, he would not have died.
But a Muslim and moment we'll look at it in which way
he will say because he had a beard, Allah subhanaw taala gave him Shahada in Ramadan in a state of fasting.
That's a different matter, but I'm just saying just as a pure man, no matter of speed, you might say, Well, you know it. And if you remember, if you say, if he didn't have a beard, he wouldn't have died, then you would be speaking like the Muna 15 spoke at the time of what,
that's what they said they told us and if you didn't go that you would not have died.
And what did Allah subhanaw taala say, Allah said, if it was written for you to die in that place, you would have gone and that is where you would have died, except that you would not have died at Sevilla.
You will not read that is written for you. So that place you had that was written for you that would have come there. But that does not have to come in this form of Shahada feasability Allah
who Allah subhanaw taala forgives all sins before on this earth itself and the person goes straight into general.
Think about that. Even if we live in this world 1000 years, what's going to happen if you have a long life may Allah protect us from long life so I like it, it is a curse people give this drop. Maybe you have a very long life. However, Salah Sol Sol tomorrow we'll take a closer look at new
But do I have so much joy discussing?
Long life may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from long lives May Allah give us a life and keep us healthy and keep us sane and keep us free from all diseases and keep us on Eva and with is that as long as we live and take us in that state. Because of long lives that Allah mentions in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says they reach a time when after knowing everything they know nothing.
To see people who have reached a long life, you know, maybe the person was a great doctor or engineer, whatever. But at that last stages of his life, he knows nothing, whatever he knew is gone.
He's like a small child, literally, like a small child is very sad to see even where they have good children who are doing their headmaster
to see an elderly person a person of great dignity being treated like a small child even though that treatment may be with love. Not that the children are abusing no they're not abusing, but they will talk to the person and like they talk to a small child
which is very sad, which is terrible. I mean, imagine is a person of great dignity. Now you are the son or the daughter out of love because now this person is behaving like a small child you know
they are like
they're talking to the to the smart to the father who's a grandfather or whatever, right? They're talking to him in that which is nice but nothing wrong. They're doing it with love. But if you just look at it and says here's a man who is the head of the Kabbalah
right, he is a server of the Kabbalah and he's being treated like a small even though it is being done with love and respect is still being treated like a small child as somebody who was you know, so have so much knowledge and everything else today it has gone everything's
so somebody if you try to live like that in a day like that, that's the death. But on the other hand, if Allah subhanaw taala wishes and asaram said the famous Hadith narrated by Abdullah Solano, he said that rasuna said that if you have sincere desire for Shahada and if you make Allah subhanho wa Taala Sahaja sincerely, Allah give me death as a sheriff is a visa. That is Allah subhanaw taala will give you the station of alpha Shaheed even if you do not die in the path of Allah. Even if you do not die in battle, Allah will give you the position of
Allah tala give us all Shahada feasibility law in whichever way that pleases Him. Because one day we have to die no matter whether you die in a hospital bed with you know, pipes and tubes May Allah protect us from that or whether you die fees are very low and death is death. One day
We have to die that is absolutely, there is no denying that whatsoever.
So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us death fees, Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive a brother who passed away, and May Allah subhanaw taala grant his family somewhere and May Allah subhanaw taala give him the highest stations in Jana Viola making one of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala
ensure that the people who killed him
in this world and in the hereafter.
I'm not making dua for He died for them, I make data let's punish them in this world and the hereafter so that they become examples for anyone who wants to kill a Muslim because he or she looks like a Muslim. May Allah make them make them a source of evidence for the world? Let them see that this is what happens to a person who kills a Muslim because the person he or she looks like a Muslim.
I remind myself once again let us think what are the symbols of Islam in my life in my appearance in my actions in my UCLA in my speech in my dealings with people because it's not restricted to Appearance alone just growing a beard is not the issue
it's a it's a it's a pseudonym aka to shave it is haram but if somebody says you know as long as I have a beard you know I can lie I can cheat I can do this back and have better law whatever Of course not do a disgrace in the beard
in the beard So the issue is not only physical a physical appearance one part of it
is important part of it. If you don't even look like a Muslim, then the people have to guess you know, is this person a Muslim or what is he? So we have to also look at VeriSign important but please let me remind myself anyway it does not end with appearance appearance is only one step
beyond appearance is our speech is our dealings our class is our Masha, what kind of society do we have? What kind of inside our house? What is the domestic Marcia like in public place? What is the public washer like my dealings with people? How do I drive on the road?
This is how I drive my car on the road must demonstrate but show my Islam How do I talk to a shopkeeper must show my Islam? How do I deal with my employees? If I'm an employer? How do I deal with my employers? If I'm an employee, this is
and that's what we need to look at. What are the what is the color of Allah in my life siboto law, what is the the symbol of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in my life? How am I identified that I belong to the party of Allah? That I belong to the party of Muhammad Rasul Allah says Allah, what is what are my frat colors? What am I relevant colors? What are my regimental symbols? That I belong to this group, because only that group will be successful in this dunya while this success has not been promised to any other group, except the group of Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So let us ensure that we belong to that group visibly as well as in our
actions as well as in our heart in terms of our akiza and what we believe and make sure that we follow this and bring it into our lives again as we are in our diet inshallah, we have time to reflect let us think about that and identify that inshallah tomorrow and after we will talk something more about this was a Lola Alana will Karim Allah Allah He was happy he might be radical
