Old Praise and Glory be to Allah we thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness and we testify that none is worthy of worship of Allah and Allah alone, without any partners, the true supreme King, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in truth, His Prophet and his servant and His Messenger, whom Allah sent us mercy to the world's. After reminding myself and youth with the Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala and welcome my brothers and sisters to the house of Allah azza wa jal and

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

Allah Tabata kehlata Allah says to us in the Quran

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

Flm en zero fill out the founder okay for Cana out there but to Latina amicably him, don't they travel through the Earth? Don't they consider the events of others around them or even before them, don't they consider

00:00:56--> 00:01:13

what has taken place with those that have preceded them? An ally of Nabi Saleh Radi Allahu Anhu used to say to the people is that envy Makana Allah Mala Mia confer in El Mirage diva, seek assistance in what has already come to pass the past

00:01:14--> 00:01:27

for what has yet to come because all matters resemble one another a great deal. History repeats itself. And they say that those who don't learn from it are doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

00:01:29--> 00:01:43

You know, many of us rightfully so, are somewhat relieved by the fact that we are heard that the bloodshed has stopped as of last night there has been a ceasefire regarding the conflict between our brothers and sisters,

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

in Palestine and between the occupying forces.

00:01:51--> 00:02:12

But we should not be reassured by this because history repeats itself. This is not the first and probably will not be the last pause until a few more cameras get turned off and then the bulldozing of a nation continues the apartheid continues the illegal settlement settlements continue the open air prison that is Leza continues.

00:02:16--> 00:02:49

But we should find reassurance in the fact that we know for certain Jerusalem and liquids will never be forgotten, and it cannot be forgotten. How can it be forgotten? When Allah azza wa jal has immortalized it has inscribed in the Quran? In Surah Surah and elsewhere, you have 1.8 billion Muslims reciting these verses night and day you have 10s of millions of Muslims that recite this book cover to cover from memory by heart so it will never be forgotten.

00:02:50--> 00:03:16

And in fact a further reassurance that the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said the OMA that carries this for and will never die let us know if a two min Almighty Allah I'll have the VA herein they will never stop being a group of my own apparent on the truth visible upon this truth lie adore Roman has Allahu Allah am and Carla for whom they will not be hurt by those who betrayed them

00:03:17--> 00:03:24

or those who neglect them those who forsake them until the Command of Allah comes to pass until the very end of time.

00:03:27--> 00:03:43

In one narration, they ask them who will they be out of surah Allah where will they be out of surah Allah he says beta will knock this well I can activate this they will be in beta lock this in Jerusalem and in the surroundings of Jerusalem, this is one of the places where you will always find them.

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

And the exceptions in history to that are very, very small.

00:03:48--> 00:03:58

And a third layer of reassurance for you is the fact that even if beta will knock this even if Al Masjid Al Aqsa, may Allah forbid would get overrun.

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

Allah will send and has sent time and time again those from outside of it to rescue it

00:04:07--> 00:04:42

because the OMA itself will never ever die. He said Allah His Salatu was Salam Musa al to rugby Allah you solidify lay him i do i mean see what I'm forcing him first stubby Hubei Bata home for Afghani. I asked my lord to never Empower against this OMA and external force that will totally eradicate them. And so he granted me that work on and he said, while we do tema I lay him and be an authority. Even if every force from the farthest corners of the earth were to unite against them, this OMA they will not be able to pull it off.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

And history has shown us this that the die of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not falter. Allah's promise for this OMA stands through. We said many times that when the Mongols nearly put this OMA

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

beneath the ground for good.

00:05:02--> 00:05:10

They went from nation state to nation state they will one day they went and killed a million people in Baghdad and killed the Khalifa.

00:05:11--> 00:05:36

This had never ever happened before in the history of the OMA by an external force, the infighting is our problem until the end of time. And they went to Bihar and killed one to 2 million and Neysa and so on and so forth. And just when we thought the OMA was conquered, and this was Georgia and Georgia and the End of Time was a year, Islam conquered their hearts and they became the OMA they became the new seed of Islam that blossomed into a new armor.

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

And a few centuries before that,

00:05:42--> 00:05:59

when the Franks of Europe when the Crusaders marched south in 1099, and put so many places Mahabharata Norman and the all the way with and codes itself Jerusalem to the sword, they left nothing alive.

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

Whoever did not leave was killed in the most heinous way. The children were smashed against their heads were smashed against the walls of the city. Every woman they could get their hands on was violated. A theater says 40 to 70,000 Muslims were killed in the courtyard of beta lock this, the blood was up to the knees of the horse's limbs were floating everywhere. The Jews themselves ran for their temples and the Crusader knights burned the temples on top of them.

00:06:32--> 00:06:40

But even that was not the end of the Omen Allah subhanho wa Taala nearly 100 years later, 88 years later sent Salahuddin to liberate it

00:06:41--> 00:06:59

and restore peace to those lands and restore sanctity to the masjid when they entered they had their their cavalry their horses trample all of the Masai if, and they installed a pen for pigs in the Mahara and, and a pulpit and oratory for the church there as well.

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

And he cleansed all of this. But I always say that when people speak about Salahuddin, they speak with a very selective memory.

00:07:11--> 00:07:55

When you think of what would Salahuddin do today, this is the sentiment yet, what did he do exactly? Because, you know, an imaginary version of social dean will not work to imagine that a person will arise out of nowhere and unite the ranks of the OMA single handedly, and be able to make demands on the rest of the world and enact a peace treaty that would not even require fighting and be able to liberate unless you do the opposite. That doesn't happen out of thin air. And we love to do this. It's convenient to think that way, because it leaves no responsibility on our shoulders. It's just like when we love to cling to it is the end of time, might as well just wait for it anyway. That is

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

someone who is impatient who wants to rush to the last chapter of the book. No, you have to follow the storyline.

00:08:01--> 00:08:12

That is like the people that cling to so and so saw a dream that Bashar Al Assad will be dead in six months and Syria will find peace. How many years has it been after those viral videos circulated?

00:08:15--> 00:08:57

Even in sports, even in business, everyone loves to cling to something that absolves them of responsibility. Say, oh, that person has supernatural powers. He must have a deal with the jinn. No, he actually just practices more than you. You just would love to believe that it's something inaccessible. Salahuddin Rahim Allah, he did what he did with a very clear method, a very obvious way. He engaged reality. One of the things he did was not to do anything until he was ready to do it. He united the OMA so that they had a political will. And when you have a political will, then in that case, you don't need force, the same way all the nations of the world because of their

00:08:57--> 00:09:15

strength. They make their demands and their demands are respected. Because they know that behind the soft words is a big stick. So there's respect. There is no requirement for you to actually engage. Salahuddin Rahim Allah understood that and we need to understand that as well.

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

It is no one's fault, but ours that we are disunited and look at it on the micro level, how difficult it is for us to disagree with each other but still commit to the unity of the Muslims and mobilize our resources for our collective benefit. Why don't we have a strong channels as those who spread lies? Whose responsibility is that to have an equally strong media platform? But the responsibility of the OMA these are our tasks our job? No one is going to tell our story. No one is going to own our cause and champion our call, but us. Salahuddin understood that Rahim Allah, he understood that he was only the bad

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

Can I

00:10:01--> 00:10:32

have a project that was before him, led by Nora Dean and before him was led by Mr. To Dean and others sincere try their best servants of the OMA. May Allah azza wa jal make us have them show for us our role our niche in the grander scheme of things, help us contribute and not throw it on someone else's shoulders, not live in an alternative reality not be delusional. And think this is excusable for us in the sight of Allah azza wa jal. Aquila Kohli has our stuff for Allah Allah money welcome.

00:10:46--> 00:10:55

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Mala be about the shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa Alessia de calor, or shadow and Mohammed Abdullah, who whenever you hold a solo

00:10:57--> 00:11:03

part of him being in tune with reality, so I had DNS Rahima hold law

00:11:05--> 00:11:46

was the fact that he understood that Allah azza wa jal was the ultimate reality. He isn't half Colombian, he is the most evident truth, he is the true one. subhanho wa taala. He is the source of everything. And that is why he was so diligent, so dedicated, so unwavering to supporting the cause of the religion, understanding that nothing else will work. Even if you read his biography carefully his armies his soldiers used to ask for raises and say why do you spend so much money on the scholarly class he used to give them an allowance a stipend, he used to invite them over to teach him the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem, he would listen attentively, you'd find him weeping. They'd

00:11:46--> 00:12:01

say, Why do you give them we're the ones putting our life on the line. He says, How can I withhold money from them? When you defend me with arrows that sometimes hit and sometimes miss, whereas they support me with arrows that never miss?

00:12:03--> 00:12:18

I invest in their dua for this omega, I support them and their education of this OMA, how do we return to a deen we cannot identify and how do we climb out of the humiliation we're in without surrendering on a better level submitting to Allah Indien

00:12:19--> 00:12:43

Didn't our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say if you turn your back on this religion if you take it lightly if you cross its boundaries, Salla Allahu Alikum Doolan, Allah will cause humiliation to descend upon you fell out, follow her ankle and he will not remove this humiliation, this state of humiliation and disgrace had that Raji rodina come until you revisit your religious commitment.

00:12:45--> 00:13:17

And in the other Hadith, he said, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, soon a time will come when the nations of the world invite one another to devour you. The same way diners invite one another to a dish, please, you first go right ahead. And I always in my head, find myself connecting that hadith with the Balfour Declaration of 100 years ago, when the UK invited the Zionist project to have a dish called Palestine that the UK didn't own. Go right ahead.

00:13:19--> 00:13:30

They said yeah rasool Allah, we're going to be very few on that day. We're going to be to that extent the feather in the wind, we must be very few on that day. He said you will be many on that day.

00:13:32--> 00:13:50

But you will be like the foam of the oceans, you'll be light you'll be weightless, you'll have no influence. And Allah who will snatch or extract from the hearts of your opponents, every fear of you every intimidation they had once had towards you and he will cast weakness into your hearts.

00:13:51--> 00:14:04

They said Yeah, Rasul Allah, what is that weakness? What it will look like what is where does it come from? He said, from your obsessive attachment to this world, your love your excessive love of this world, and your fear of death.

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

Think about it. How many of us are so afraid

00:14:09--> 00:14:23

that our bosses will see us pray in public and we forget that the only way we have left to support this Oh Mariah is to fall on our knees fall on our faces makes her Jude on time without compromise.

00:14:25--> 00:14:28

How many of our sisters find it so difficult?

00:14:30--> 00:14:39

To tell the world To hell with your fashion trends, To hell with your pop culture, to hell with your music videos, I'm going to put the hijab on the way Allah wants me to.

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

That would be one of the greatest things whether you realize it or not because Allah said so to support your brothers and sisters in Tuncer Allah Han Solo Kuma with a bit academical. You support Allah's Cause he will support you and anchor your feet firm. How many of us are incapable of being selfless of giving up the last word

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

Word of stopping our habit of being vengeful.

00:15:03--> 00:15:13

Salahuddin Rahim Allah and I will end with this. He used to keep tabs on the traders in the markets to see how mature the owners Dean has gotten.

00:15:14--> 00:15:27

And then when he saw one man say no, I've sold enough today go buy from the guy across the stall the next stall down. He hasn't sold anything today. Salahuddin said All right now we're making progress.

00:15:29--> 00:16:07

May Allah azza wa jal be with our brothers and sisters in every corner of the world and show us a path show us a path to help them. May Allah azza wa jal never write this among those that have forsaken them. May Allah azza wa jal forgive us and forgive our families and forgive this OMA for our incompetence and help us do whatever it takes to fill that niche fill that little corner of the world he has placed us in terms of turning the tide, may we do our part, may we not arrive on the day of judgment and discover we could have done more but we were delusional May Allah protect us from such a fate. Allah Who nephila Now Hannah Allahumma Sal Islam on Salam slimmin y de la Vela
