00:01:20--> 00:01:22

my dear respected brothers sisters,

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

this is the second of the Mikoto the series called the way forward

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

we need to look at the way forward because

00:01:35--> 00:01:52

everything comes to an end. And so will these difficult times that we are going through Insha Allah we ask Allah subhana wa Tada for an end to them an end to them which is quick and which is on justice and compassion and with His mercy inshallah

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

what it's very important

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

to

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

learn from what happens in the world to us and to those around us.

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

Because as they say, nations that do not learn from his from their own history are condemned to repeat it.

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

So what do we learn from?

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

What is going on?

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

There is no guidance better than the love of Allah. In the candidacy, Gita Allah.

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

two historic events

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

concerning Jerusalem.

00:02:42--> 00:03:25

In surah Tulisa ceremonies, right. Allah subhanaw taala said we're Kadena Isla Bani Israel Isla Philippi Tabby the to Sedona fill out the Mara attain. What are the I don't know one career for either Jah wa do la Houma Barcena la comida learner only was initiated in Virginia so Kayla Dr. O'Connor what are some of oriola some rather than hola como Kurata Ali him um, the dinar Colombian valium weapon in wa jal na X Rana fear in addition to medicine to learn physical or in asset don't fall for either

00:03:26--> 00:03:47

karate Lea su Hukam while you hear the horror Masjid Kamada Hello who are well Amara while you will be rumored to be honest, I saw Rob Bolcom Ayala hammock home why not to Marina while the island Johanna lil Katharina hacia

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

these ayat of surah been Israel's roots, Lisa,

00:03:53--> 00:04:07

over Syrian and scholar scholars have said first of all the meaning Allah subhanaw taala said and we want we want the Bani Israel in the Scripture in the Gita, you will certainly cause corruption in the land twice.

00:04:08--> 00:04:20

And you will become extremely arrogant. When the first of the two warnings would come to pass. We would send against you some of our slaves of grid power grid might

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

who would ravage your homes, this would be a warning fulfilled, then, after your repentance we will give you the upper hand over them and aid you with wealth and offspring, causing you to outnumber them. If you act rightly, it is for your own good. But if you do wrong, it is your own loss. And when the second warning would come to pass, your enemies would be left to totally disgrace you and enter the temple of Jerusalem and this refers to the mercies of Salah Marisa as they entered it the first time and are

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

totally destroy whatever would fall into the hands. Perhaps your Rob will have mercy on you if you repent. But if you return to sin, we will return to punishment. And we have made Jahannam a permanent confinement for the believers for the disobedience.

00:05:20--> 00:05:53

To give you the historical background of this in 597 BC, Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, he besieged Jerusalem. And after a 30 month siege, Jerusalem fell, and the Babylonians systematically destroyed the city. And they destroyed the mercy of slavery CERAM, which is called the First Temple and the kingdom of Judah was dissolved, and most of the survivors were carted off as slaves to Babylon.

00:05:56--> 00:06:02

The second siege of Jerusalem was 70 BCE, so that is after 600 years roughly. That was the sum of years

00:06:04--> 00:06:54

during which time the when Israel had prosperity and so on and so on. The second was the siege by the Romans. And the general was Titus, who would later become the emperor Titus. He besieged Jerusalem, and after five months siege, the Romans completely destroyed the city, including the second Jewish temple and enslaved and deported the survivors. There were no Jews left in Jerusalem. The city of Jerusalem was thoroughly sacked by the Normans, buildings, homes and walls were torn down, leaving the city in ruins. The level of devastation was such that josefus, one of the Roman historians, he said that whoever visited the city after its destructions, after its destruction,

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

could not believe that this city had ever been inhabited.

00:07:01--> 00:07:08

In this period, which is mentioned in the Quran, when Israel who were the higher amount of the time they were the Muslims of the time.

00:07:11--> 00:07:33

Allah's right that I said that they were living lives of disobedience and refuse to repent. So Allah subhanaw taala allowed his war like slaves, and both the cases the Babylonians and the Romans were policies they were, we should again they worshipped idols and the Bani Israel were

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

Muslims, they worship one God.

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

But Allah allowed them

00:07:41--> 00:07:52

to do that and to destroy and enslave the Muslims. Now very interesting to think about this Allah subhanaw taala did not say that this was because of what the people of Jerusalem were doing.

00:07:55--> 00:08:12

Right? Jerusalem got destroyed, but Allah did not say it got destroyed because what those people were doing. Allah subhanaw taala said this is because of what the Bani Israel were generally doing where, wherever they were on the earth, and the journey Israel were dispersed all over the world.

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

Now that is why

00:08:18--> 00:08:32

many of the scholars have quoted these ayat and they have said that Jerusalem or hauts is the thermometer it is the meter, which checks and tells us the health the spiritual health of the Muslim ummah.

00:08:36--> 00:08:43

It's not my call Medina Jerusalem is the place which is the meter which tells us the health of the Muslim ummah.

00:08:46--> 00:09:17

The second delay for this is the letter that Omar Abdel Fattah Ravi Allah who wrote to sad even though we were conscious of your lawn, both of them one is the father in law versus SLM. The other one is his uncle. Both of them are from the Azure Romo Bashara, they are the among the people who are promised and people who are promised Jana in this life. Sad, because what the Alana was the general commanding the army, fighting the Persians in the Battle of Cassia. Not a long letter, I wrote it here.

00:09:18--> 00:09:33

But in that letter, say that our honor Hatha Raja, Nana said, protect yourselves and your soldiers. He said, I command you because he was the Khalifa. He said, I command you to protect yourself and your soldiers. And remember,

00:09:34--> 00:09:39

a number of soldiers I won't say the majority, but a huge number of those soldiers were saba.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

Say the number is telling them, protect yourselves from sins, seek ALLAH subhanaw taala has protection from sins, like you seek His protection from the enemy, because the sins are a worse enemy for you than the enemy than the human enemy.

00:10:01--> 00:10:11

And he then quoted these two is in his letter. And he said otherwise it will happen to you like what happened to the Bani Israel as Allah subhanaw taala mentioned. So those are recorded yet.

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

So today

00:10:15--> 00:10:27

a very difficult thing for us to stomach. Very difficult thing for us to accept. Believe me, I debated long and hard before I wrote this code,

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

whether I should even speak about this,

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

but I told myself that I'm answerable to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

So I have to Ansar Allah. And if I don't want to be the in that position, I should not stand here.

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

And so I wrote this cover.

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

Today, as we see what is happening in Philistine, we must reflect

00:10:51--> 00:10:56

on the fact that maybe we are the reason that is happening

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

is not because of them.

00:11:02--> 00:11:10

We are the reason why that's happening. And just like excess cholesterol, right, give you some examples

00:11:12--> 00:11:16

you eat is fantastic, fabulous, you know, meals,

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

which are very nice, very tasty, but huge cholesterol.

00:11:22--> 00:11:28

Does that affect your tongue? Does it affect your mouth? Does it affect your stomach? Or does it affect your heart?

00:11:29--> 00:11:36

The heart didn't eat anything. The mouth ate, it went in the belly, but the effect is on the heart.

00:11:38--> 00:11:48

To understand this, therefore, what we are saying is that things can happen somewhere, but the effect is seen visible somewhere else. Another one

00:11:49--> 00:12:18

to understand his logic. Another famous insert from the Sierra of Rasulullah Hassan is the Battle of Gods were also nicer Salem placed 50 archers on a hill next to God. And he gave them clear instructions. He said don't leave this place, no matter what happens. Whether if you see us winning don't leave the place. If you see we are dead and the birds are vultures are eating from the bodies don't leave the place

00:12:20--> 00:12:35

to contract the story, what actually happened? The Muslims won initially in Ohio and the archers on the Hill, who are under the command of Abdullah Pancho Villa know when they saw the Muslims in the camp of the average

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

gathering booty.

00:12:39--> 00:12:54

They said we will lose out battle is over. Let's go Abdullah said Rasool rasa Sallam told us clearly don't leave the place no matter what they said no no no that applied to while the battle was going on doesn't apply now.

00:12:56--> 00:13:11

Please listen carefully to the words what it is. They said under sola Salah surrounds command is time bound it applied at that time doesn't apply anymore. Doesn't is not binding on me. So 40 Out of the 50 left.

00:13:12--> 00:13:32

Carly been worried Ravi Alonso had a battalion of cavalry right behind all the Saba archers. He said. My battle plan is God I can't attack the Muslim from behind. For his within quotes. Good luck. The Archers left Khalid bin Walid and Nicaragua, Panama they attacked and believe me.

00:13:34--> 00:13:48

Medieval military history is my very great interest. I read a lot about battle brands. The worst nightmare of the infantry soldier is to be caught by cavalry when they are not in a formation.

00:13:49--> 00:13:52

The chorus slaughtered the Muslim 70 Muslims, right.

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

Including Hamza bin Abdullah Abdullah including

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

so many of them right.

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

And Rasul Allah is Rahsaan himself was grievously injured, very severely injured.

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

I tell me,

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

who did the who did

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

the mistake who made the mistake

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

and who got hurt?

00:14:30--> 00:14:30

Right.

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

Mistakes don't always happen there. Now you might say well, why?

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

Now this is my

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

understanding of the Syrah and of these diets.

00:14:43--> 00:14:51

Because when they make the mistake, this is all from the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala. The ones who make the mistake, Allah subhanaw taala does not manage them immediately.

00:14:52--> 00:14:55

Because they wala took them in the state of that mistake, they will go to John.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

So Allah leaves them to make

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Is the fall in Dover.

00:15:02--> 00:15:15

Allah subhanho wa Taala sends whatever he sends on other people who are good people, not as I'm not as a punishment, but to raise their Rajat to give them shahada because they have been making unfortunately and so who come?

00:15:18--> 00:15:28

Allah gives them Shahada. They are they are winners. Allah gives them shahada, he gives the others the opportunity you see what is happening over here oh my god, I am the one I cause this thing to happen.

00:15:30--> 00:15:37

Is my mistake is not their mistake. It's my mistake. I caused it to happen. I make a Sephora makeover insha Allah Allah will forgive me also.

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

And that is the message that I want to

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

to say to you.

00:15:51--> 00:16:07

Let us see what is happening today in the Bossa Nova is only one believe me. The other is top of our mind because social media whatnot, whatnot, whatnot. How many of you remember what happened to the what happened continues to happen to the Rohingya as in Burma?

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

completely wiped out.

00:16:12--> 00:16:13

Clean.

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

For the same reason, gas, natural gas.

00:16:20--> 00:16:28

There's living in whoever survived living in refugee camps in Bangladesh, how many protests Do you see on the streets for them? They are non Muslim.

00:16:30--> 00:16:35

What's happening to the wiggers in China? They have them in concentration camps, they're harvesting organs.

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

Women have been systematically raped.

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

How many protests Do you see?

00:16:45--> 00:16:59

So Hamdulillah we should protest maybe we should but don't think that this is only one this is all over the place. It's happening. So Allah subhanaw taala is sending what he's sending, which is not punishment, which is rama of Allah subhanaw taala. To them, it gives them shahada

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

and he gives us time

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

to change and correct ourselves.

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the trophy to make sincere is the foreign Tober

00:17:14--> 00:17:24

and not to invite the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala on ourselves. A whole committee has asked the Corolla Haley, welcome Melissa Muslim in foster in the whole world of Rahim.

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen.

00:17:32--> 00:17:42

Wa Salatu was Salam ala Shafi lambier, who were mousseline Muhammad Rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah URI to us. I will send them to Steven cathedral cathedral Hama Babu, a brother sisters.

00:17:44--> 00:17:56

A last round that I said in this gala I mean Allah Allah Iike who said Lunarlon Devi, yeah, you will Adina Armando Sandra Allah He was selling with a sativa Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad invita Ali Mohammed Kumar Saudi tadagra Hema WA.

00:17:57--> 00:18:04

Majeed Allahumma barik ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed come on over Hema liberal Hema indica we didn't

00:18:05--> 00:18:21

we are all familiar with this idea of the Quran and we caught it so many times when Allah subhanaw taala said in the La La yoga you know, maybe Coleman had UVU maybe unfussy Allah subhanaw taala told us not to spoil our own good situation ourselves.

00:18:23--> 00:18:33

No great culture no great civilization no great country no great nation is ever destroyed from outside by enemies never.

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

It is destroyed from within.

00:18:38--> 00:18:45

Allah said Indeed Allah will never change the good state of our people until they change their own state.

00:18:46--> 00:19:17

Therefore the first thing to do is to seek forgiveness and ask Allah's forgiveness and to change our ways the purpose of forgiveness. The meaning of forgiveness is to change it's not simply to say stop first of all, it's tough for mainstore means we turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala told us no and he said I'm sorry for cultural stuff will rubber come in now? We're gonna go for your silly sama la comida where you need to Colombia Mwalimu Albany in where janela come Jana, Allah C'mon, ha

00:19:19--> 00:19:30

nobody Salam said Seek your rubs forgiveness for he is truly most forgiving. He will shower you with rain and give you a wealth and Jill and give you gardens as well as rivers.

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

So, let us look at

00:19:37--> 00:19:40

ourselves and say therefore, what must we do?

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

Now there are

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

four things which are critical. Number one, as I mentioned is to make is the foreign Toba and make sure that we earn halal, we eat halal, and we fulfill all four I all that

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

Allah has made obligatory, we do three things. eat halal and haram because without that the DUA and the Salah and they rather not accepted.

00:20:10--> 00:20:26

So that's the one that's making Budo and then salah, you pray without although there is no Salah you are praying but there is Allah is not accepted as valid or invalid because you didn't go to the widow of the earning the widow of the soul is to earn and eat halal.

00:20:27--> 00:20:34

So we need to clean up our act. Number two is God. Never ever underestimate the power of God.

00:20:36--> 00:20:42

Yes, we protest Yes, we send a letter to this senator or that person or that President.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

First of all,

00:20:45--> 00:20:56

it's not in their power to change anything. We should send a letter because that's all we can do. But the one who can change everything and without whose permission, nothing will change the law.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

And you and I have every human being has a direct access to Allah. Allah said only as searchable.

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

So ask Allah Allah will give us

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

now in dua, three principles.

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

Number one,

00:21:15--> 00:21:30

is to ask us to glorify Allah subhanaw taala focus on the glory and majesty of Allah number one, number two, express your own brokenness and your own helplessness. And believe me, that's, it doesn't take imagination, we know this.

00:21:32--> 00:21:41

And three, ask Allah in keeping with his majesty and grace, don't ask Allah thinking about well, you know, I'm so weak. I'm so this what can I not? No, no.

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

I'm weak. So I'm asking. That is why I'm asking.

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

If I wasn't doing why would I be asking?

00:21:51--> 00:22:19

Ask with complete certainty that Allah subhanaw taala is listening to us. He hears us, he can do he can change our situation. So we say Oh Allah, change it because you can change it, change it because you said you will change it. Accept us and accept order. Allah subhanaw taala promise to do this. And inshallah we keep begging Our job is to ask, keep asking until when, until we get it, or until we meet Allah.

00:22:20--> 00:22:25

There's no time to that. And don't fall into this thing. Oh, you know, we made some I do anything up or No,

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

keep doing, keep doing. Number three, awareness.

00:22:31--> 00:22:42

All of us should be aware of what is happening right now and educate us and educate ourselves regarding the history of this whole situation in the Middle East.

00:22:44--> 00:22:51

And very important, it's not just a matter of educating ourselves and sending around messages, educate others.

00:22:52--> 00:23:05

The real people who need to know the true history of that piece of land of the Holy Land, of Jerusalem of Philistine are the people who don't know that history. Most of us know the history.

00:23:06--> 00:23:11

So do teachings, do seminars, learn and teach.

00:23:12--> 00:23:19

The problem is many people as they claim to be experts on the Middle East and you ask them where is Jordan they say he retired.

00:23:21--> 00:23:55

That's not good enough, right? We must understand what we're talking about, get the facts, and then teach people hamdulillah at least in this country, people are willing to listen, people are willing to sit and listen to you and so on. So go and speak history don't go do propaganda don't talk about actual facts, believe me, the facts are so clear that nobody who has any sense of justice once they know the facts, that they can support the genocide that is happening there right now.

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

And number four, get involved.

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

And today right now the probably the best place to get involved with the BDS movement.

00:24:06--> 00:24:19

Today to date, this is the literally the most effective cause of action, we have the right to buy or subscribe to whatever we want, we have the right not to buy what we don't want to buy nobody can force us

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

exercise that right.

00:24:23--> 00:24:31

I know that some of us therefore means that for for us, it will mean that we will not use our within quote favorite brands.

00:24:33--> 00:24:36

So it'll be painful, but believing that less painful then

00:24:37--> 00:24:47

picking up the bits and pieces of your family after they've been bombed. Right. So forget about that pain, there's no pain.

00:24:48--> 00:24:52

Let's show our sincerity by putting our money where our mouth is.

00:24:53--> 00:24:54

donate

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

to the cause. Donate to people who are there who are on the on the ground. Why?

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

helping those people and by God products because that is in our hands

00:25:06--> 00:25:11

and don't make excuses don't say oh what does it matter if I don't drink one cup ins in Starbucks?

00:25:12--> 00:25:20

You will be asked what did you do? Allah will not say how did the earning graph us Starbucks? How was it happening? No, Allah will say, What did you do?

00:25:24--> 00:25:36

I did what I what I can do you do what you can do, don't worry about this whole thing of. So what I mentioned is much more in much more detail, the last you must call but so listen to that very clearly.

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

And finally,

00:25:43--> 00:25:59
