My dear brothers and sisters, elders,

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

to

00:01:03 --> 00:01:04

all of you. May Allah

00:01:05 --> 00:01:06

make this Eid

00:01:07 --> 00:01:10

full of fire and barakah for all of

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

us here and for all the Muslims all

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

over the world.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

I remind myself and you that today,

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

the best that

00:01:21 --> 00:01:23

can possibly be done is the

00:01:23 --> 00:01:24

is

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

the sacrifice.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

As we know from the Hadith of and

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

and, Ibn Majah.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:35

Rasulullah

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

said, the son of Adam

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

does not do any action on the day

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

of sacrifice,

00:01:41 --> 00:01:42

which is more pleasing

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

to Allah

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

than the sacrifice of animals.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

And in another hadith in Musaat Ahmad and

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

Ibn Majah,

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

Abu Huraira

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

reported that Rasulullah

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

said, whoever can afford to offer a sacrifice

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

but does not do so, let him not

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

approach our place of prayer, which is the.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:06

So sacrifice is very important, and it therefore

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

must be done. Anyone who is eligible to

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

pay Zakat is eligible

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

for the sacrifice or liable for the sacrifice.

00:02:13 --> 00:02:16

And therefore, you should do that including even

00:02:16 --> 00:02:19

if you became eligible today, you must, inshallah,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

try your best

00:02:21 --> 00:02:22

to do a sacrifice

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

today.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

My brothers and sisters, I remind myself and

00:02:26 --> 00:02:30

you that the meaning of being Muslim is

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

to submit to Allah

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

without question,

00:02:34 --> 00:02:35

without reservation,

00:02:36 --> 00:02:38

without argument, and without hesitation.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

To submit joyfully and eagerly,

00:02:42 --> 00:02:45

That is the symbol of our trust in

00:02:45 --> 00:02:45

him.

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

And that trust is is what earns his

00:02:49 --> 00:02:50

pleasure

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

and his help.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

And that is why the iconic symbol of

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

Islam is the sajdah.

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

It's complete and total submission and helplessness

00:03:00 --> 00:03:01

before Allah

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

a symbol of total unhesitating

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

obedience,

00:03:06 --> 00:03:09

a symbol of total trust and faith in

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

Allah

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

The reward of that is tawakkur.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:16

It's a condition of the heart of reliance,

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

condition of the heart which is free from

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

all stress and all fear.

00:03:22 --> 00:03:25

And the and the reward of that is

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

the nusrah, is the help of Allah

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

which is not subject to any of his

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

laws.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:34

I remind myself and you that is

00:03:35 --> 00:03:35

Allah

00:03:36 --> 00:03:36

gift

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

for taqwa, for obedience.

00:03:39 --> 00:03:42

We cannot live a life of disobedience

00:03:42 --> 00:03:43

and expect

00:03:43 --> 00:03:44

our hearts

00:03:44 --> 00:03:47

to be filled with the and of

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

Allah

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50

said

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

Allah

00:03:59 --> 00:04:01

said which means it is neither

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

the

00:04:10 --> 00:04:11

which reaches

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

him. The purpose of

00:04:13 --> 00:04:14

is to inculcate

00:04:15 --> 00:04:18

the spirit of submission, of sacrificing

00:04:18 --> 00:04:21

our desires, of sacrificing what we want

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

to win the pleasure of Allah

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

and become among those who Allah

00:04:27 --> 00:04:28

called al Masinoon.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

I want to give you 2 examples

00:04:32 --> 00:04:35

of the issue of Taqwa and what the

00:04:35 --> 00:04:36

meaning of sacrificing

00:04:37 --> 00:04:38

our desires is.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:40

One is

00:04:42 --> 00:04:43

where the Sahaba

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

had set out

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

with the Hakobah Rasool to

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

make umrah.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

It was not desire as in wanting to

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

do something

00:04:56 --> 00:04:58

to disobey Allah, to make Umrah the best

00:04:58 --> 00:05:00

of ibadah, inshaAllah.

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

But Allah

00:05:02 --> 00:05:04

had some other plan and therefore

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

Rasool

00:05:06 --> 00:05:07

ordered them to return

00:05:08 --> 00:05:09

without doing umrah

00:05:10 --> 00:05:12

and to sacrifice their animals, which they had

00:05:12 --> 00:05:13

brought and to shave their heads.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:19

Please understand that that decision of Rasool

00:05:19 --> 00:05:20

in Hudaybiyah

00:05:20 --> 00:05:22

was not taken with consultation.

00:05:22 --> 00:05:23

He did not make

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

with anybody.

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

He did not even ask

00:05:28 --> 00:05:29

who he normally used to ask.

00:05:30 --> 00:05:33

It was a unilateral decision by the Rasool

00:05:33 --> 00:05:34

alayhis salaam.

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

The Sabbath obeyed.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:39

They did not like it. They wept,

00:05:41 --> 00:05:42

but they obeyed.

00:05:44 --> 00:05:45

And that's why I call

00:05:47 --> 00:05:49

the final test

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

that Allah

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

has set for the Sahaba,

00:05:52 --> 00:05:53

a test of obedience.

00:05:55 --> 00:05:57

It was obviously never

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

the intention of Allah

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

that they should do Umrah, so why send

00:06:02 --> 00:06:03

them there?

00:06:04 --> 00:06:05

That was the test.

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

The second test,

00:06:08 --> 00:06:09

and I'm saying this for a reason,

00:06:11 --> 00:06:13

was after the.

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

Rasul

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

sent the army again to deal with

00:06:19 --> 00:06:22

the treachery of the one of and

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

he gave them his

00:06:25 --> 00:06:27

an instruction. He gave them

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

and he said, pray

00:06:29 --> 00:06:30

in

00:06:30 --> 00:06:31

the lands of.

00:06:33 --> 00:06:34

When they left,

00:06:34 --> 00:06:35

as they were going,

00:06:36 --> 00:06:37

sun was going down.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

Some of them said,

00:06:40 --> 00:06:41

we are going to miss

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

altogether.

00:06:43 --> 00:06:46

So let us stop here and pray because

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

what is the for

00:06:55 --> 00:06:57

at its time. So it is sun is

00:06:57 --> 00:07:01

going down. We should pray. Others said, it

00:07:01 --> 00:07:02

is the order of the Hakam of the

00:07:02 --> 00:07:05

Rasul alayhi salaam that we should not pray

00:07:05 --> 00:07:08

unless we get to that place. We should

00:07:08 --> 00:07:09

pray in that place.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:13

So there was a difference of opinion on

00:07:13 --> 00:07:16

the matter of Ibadah for Ibadah

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

between the Sahara.

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

These were people who were getting instructions directly

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

from the Rasul alaihi

00:07:23 --> 00:07:24

salam.

00:07:25 --> 00:07:26

But there was a different opinion.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:30

What did they do? They acted on the

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

different opinion. Those who felt that they should

00:07:32 --> 00:07:35

pray right there, they stopped and they prayed.

00:07:35 --> 00:07:38

Those who felt they should continue, they continued.

00:07:38 --> 00:07:40

And they prayed in

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

the land of Baru Qoreida. The sun did

00:07:42 --> 00:07:44

not stop for them. Salah became a Chaddah.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:46

So they prayed Chaddah in the land of

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

Baru Qureza.

00:07:48 --> 00:07:50

When they came back to Rasulullah

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

they reported. They said, Rasool Allah, this was

00:07:53 --> 00:07:55

the issue. We had a different opinion. He

00:07:55 --> 00:07:57

said, what did you do? He said, some

00:07:57 --> 00:07:58

of us did this. Some of us did

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

that. He said,

00:08:01 --> 00:08:02

He said, no problem.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:05

The point I want to make to you

00:08:05 --> 00:08:06

is that,

00:08:07 --> 00:08:10

for differences of opinion, some of our brothers

00:08:10 --> 00:08:11

prayed

00:08:12 --> 00:08:13

Eid yesterday

00:08:13 --> 00:08:15

in Masjid An Nur, Alhamdulillah.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:19

They came and asked me. I said, Alhamdulillah.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:21

They said, what is your position? I said,

00:08:21 --> 00:08:22

I will be fasting

00:08:23 --> 00:08:25

fasting on that day, but if somebody invites

00:08:25 --> 00:08:27

me for iftar in Masjid Al Noh, I

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

will go.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:29

That is my position.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:34

And others like you, we are praying here

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

today.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:38

People are coming to me and saying, the

00:08:38 --> 00:08:40

Ummah will be divided. The Ummah was not

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

divided when the Sabbath had a different opinion

00:08:42 --> 00:08:44

about salah. Why will we be why will

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

we be divided now?

00:08:46 --> 00:08:49

There is flexibility in our deal. If somebody

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

is following some daleel, alhamdulillah.

00:08:52 --> 00:08:54

We have a different daleel, alhamdulillah.

00:08:57 --> 00:08:59

There is no division in the upper. Please

00:08:59 --> 00:09:00

understand. We are 1 people, Insha'Allah.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:01

Yes.

00:09:02 --> 00:09:05

All of us are brothers and sisters to

00:09:05 --> 00:09:05

one another.

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

There's no division. No need to worry about

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

division. There's no division. There will never be

00:09:11 --> 00:09:13

any division. There will be division if we

00:09:13 --> 00:09:15

fall into this trap. We are not in

00:09:15 --> 00:09:16

this trap.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:19

Just because somebody prays, eat on one day

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

or somebody fast on one day, it does

00:09:21 --> 00:09:23

not break our bow our bow tree and

00:09:23 --> 00:09:26

our our bond as brothers and sisters. What

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

kind of bond is that? You pray you

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

fast on today and I fast tomorrow and

00:09:29 --> 00:09:30

we are no longer brothers?

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

What kind of craziness is this?

00:09:33 --> 00:09:36

So we are all brothers and sisters, and

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

we will remain brothers and sisters.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:40

Please understand, today is the day of sacrifice.

00:09:41 --> 00:09:44

Like our Amir, doctor Balwa said, it has

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

to be a sacrifice not only of the

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

animal,

00:09:47 --> 00:09:50

sacrifice of our desires. We need a sacrifice

00:09:50 --> 00:09:51

like the sacrifice of What

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

was the sacrifice?

00:09:57 --> 00:10:01

When removed him from the commander commanding of

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

the army. He was the commander commander in

00:10:03 --> 00:10:04

chief of the army

00:10:04 --> 00:10:06

appointed by Rasulullah,

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

peace,

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

understand this.

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

He gave him the title, say, fullah.

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

He appointed him.

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

When

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

Abu Bakr

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

came

00:10:18 --> 00:10:20

and he was the khalifa, said, the Omar

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

said to him,

00:10:21 --> 00:10:24

people are following Khalib and so on and

00:10:24 --> 00:10:26

so forth. Whatever reason he had, he said

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

remove Khalib from said,

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

I will not remove the one who Allah

00:10:31 --> 00:10:33

subhanahu wa ta who the Nabi of Allah

00:10:33 --> 00:10:34

has appointed.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:36

When Sayidina Umar became

00:10:36 --> 00:10:39

Khalifa after 2 years, he's almost his first

00:10:39 --> 00:10:42

action was he sent a letter saying Khalib

00:10:42 --> 00:10:44

bin Walid is no longer the commander in

00:10:44 --> 00:10:45

chief of the army.

00:10:46 --> 00:10:48

And the command of the army was given

00:10:48 --> 00:10:49

to

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

What did Khalil say?

00:10:53 --> 00:10:54

Khalil

00:10:55 --> 00:10:57

said, I do not fight for the sake

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

of Umar. He said, I fight for the

00:10:58 --> 00:11:00

sake of Allah. And I will fight for

00:11:00 --> 00:11:02

the sake of Allah even if I'm the

00:11:02 --> 00:11:03

only one fighting.

00:11:04 --> 00:11:05

Did he did he tell the army, now

00:11:05 --> 00:11:07

now follow me. Okay,

00:11:07 --> 00:11:09

Let's go. Now we march on Madinah. Let

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

us let us take over. Let let I

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

will be the Khalifa here. No. No.

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

That. Because this was the of Rasulullah salallahu

00:11:16 --> 00:11:18

alaihi wa sallam. Because we have a difference

00:11:18 --> 00:11:20

of opinion, it does not break the Ummah.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

Please understand this. If anyone tells you that,

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

just bring them to me.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:28

We are 1 and we will remain 1.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

Yes.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:31

I can't hear you.

00:11:32 --> 00:11:33

Insha'Allah.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:36

My brothers and sisters,

00:11:57 --> 00:11:58

he is

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

your, manifest and clear and open enemy.

00:12:04 --> 00:12:06

My brothers and sisters,

00:12:08 --> 00:12:10

I would like to wish all of you

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

again

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

and

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

request you in the middle of your enjoyment

00:12:15 --> 00:12:17

and eating of good food and meeting relatives

00:12:17 --> 00:12:18

and so on,

00:12:18 --> 00:12:19

let us

00:12:19 --> 00:12:21

spare a little time

00:12:21 --> 00:12:23

to remember and remind each other

00:12:24 --> 00:12:27

that we are sitting here in peace and

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

celebrating this Eid,

00:12:29 --> 00:12:30

and we are making a when we are

00:12:30 --> 00:12:33

praying and so on and so forth. But

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

there are brothers and sisters of ours.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:42

Let us spare some thought and time for

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

them. And let us make dua that Allah

00:12:47 --> 00:12:48

who should help them in ways that they

00:12:48 --> 00:12:50

cannot imagine. We ask

00:12:50 --> 00:12:52

Allah to enable us to make the Hajjut

00:12:53 --> 00:12:54

on ourselves

00:12:54 --> 00:12:56

with the intention of asking Allah

00:12:57 --> 00:13:00

to help the Muslims wherever they are. We

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

ask Allah

00:13:02 --> 00:13:04

to help us to stand up and give

00:13:04 --> 00:13:06

us the courage to stand up against the

00:13:06 --> 00:13:07

oppressors,

00:13:07 --> 00:13:11

whoever they may be, understanding that sometimes those

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

oppressors

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

are ourselves.

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

We ask Allah

00:13:15 --> 00:13:18

to help us to stand against the oppressors

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

and to support the people who are being

00:13:21 --> 00:13:24

oppressed no matter where they are and who

00:13:24 --> 00:13:25

they are.
