the family had the
What the hell up with our bat a banana in our alley by the brothers and sisters today, next Friday inshallah Allah
I'm going to be talking about the concept of masculinity or ruler
in the Quran,
what does Allah Subhana Allah say about this concept?
That, unfortunately has become very ambiguous. And today
it's great to have 20 students from
me, us, it's an all boys school, isn't it? Correct.
And for the sisters who are listening or attending with us, may Allah subhanaw taala bless them.
This is something that is very relevant, because there's a lot of confusion about this, you know, there, there used to be a time where there was no issue people men knew what, who they were, women knew who they were. Men and women didn't have any confusion as to how they identify or they see themselves. But now we live in a very strange time
we have many individuals who are unsure and clear, there's a lot of ambiguity
about their gender,
and how they feel from inside.
And we knew all along
that your biological makeup does not necessarily define who you are.
I mean, I agree that, you know,
your biological makeup doesn't necessarily define you.
It identifies you but it doesn't define your skin color.
your sex, your height, your race, none of these things really define you.
what define you is your true character
how you behave, how you carry yourself. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes a distinction. The Quran makes a distinction between males.
Now everyone who has
who's born who's born male is because they're male in Islam, you're a male. There's we're not talking about that. The Quran considers every boy, male,
every girl female, there's, there's no, it's very clear on that. But not every male is necessarily a man or turns out to be a man.
Allah azza wa jal define men
to be of some exceptional
level of commitment.
So, so when we look at this concept of manhood or masculinity, or who are the real men that Allah azza wa jal calls upon in the Quran.
We find that the first thing that that that comes to, to mind is that Allah subhana wa Tada informed us in the Quran that when he chose Prophets and Messengers through whom Allah subhanaw taala once wanted to communicate to mankind the Children of Adam, wanted to communicate his message. Allah subhanaw taala chose the most noble of men,
the best of men, and Allah Subhana Allah Allah defines them as men.
So Allah Subhana Allah said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one out of seven, public at 11 jala We have not sent before you anyone as a prophet or messenger, except men, exceptional men, not any man.
Elijah, what distinguish them that they were the best of their people and Allah Subhana Allah spoke to them through ya know, he like him. They received why
they are human beings, like any other human being, but they were acts of extraordinary character. These individuals were very exceptional. They were the most honest, the most upright, the most respectful, the most dignified, the most committed, the most patient, the most steadfast of their people.
So ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah says, Well, I'm out of sending that Publika Ilayaraja Allah. So this is one
one thing that we find about these men.
So you have to ask yourself,
really, what does it mean to be associated with this category through from whom Allah subhanaw taala chose
exceptional people that came to save humanity from his guidance?
What does it mean to be part of that?
It means that you need to follow in their footsteps. You are supposed to be as committed your mission should be also saving humanity for misguidance.
A man a true man is supposed to be someone that
and carries guidance to other
from his guidance.
So a true man is someone a true believing man is someone that says, oh, I need to follow the example of these men. May Allah's peace and blessings be upon them sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Number two, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah tells us that the true followers, the most dedicated followers of these prophets and messengers
are selfless men, who again, are so keen on guiding their people and saving them
and in some cases, at the expense of their own safety. So Allah Subhana Allah, Allah tells us in the story of Musa alayhis salam,
the story of Moses beach via peace be upon him that it was a man that came Allah describes him as a true man.
This man came to
alert Musa alayhis salam to the plot against him.
Well, yeah, I mean x y Medina t. Well, that was Yeah, arguement XL Medina. yessuh father Yeah, yeah Musa
In the mother, hey, I don't wanna big Allah subhanaw taala says this man came from the furthest part of the city to warn Moses, which by the way, implicitly, it's not explicitly mentioned. It's implicitly there it shows.
You can say that men are supposed to be fit. If they can afford to be physically fit, they should be physically fit. Because this man came from the furthest part of the city running.
To deliver a message, imagine if he was out of shape, what would have happened? He would have not made it.
And this story is repeated again. Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the story of the three prophets that were mentioned that were sent. Again, another man comes from the furthest part of the city to warn his people. Look at the level of passion and commitment that this person has, again, they these two individuals, these two men whom Allah azza wa jal refers to as men, were committed to saving their people reinforcing
the message of Allah subhanaw taala or providing support for the prophets.
Later on Allah Subhana Allah to Allah tells us that it was a man and some scholars say that is it was the same man. When Musa Ali Salam came back to Egypt to Egypt, Moses, when he came back to Egypt, one man believed in him.
And he eventually his Eman.
His faith, became public. And he was tortured.
In the story of Yes, seeing Allah Subhana Allah tells us that this man, the man that came from the furthest part of the city, to reinforce the message of these three prophets,
and encourage his people to follow them and believe in them
that this man's attempt to save his people and call them to follow the prophets
a level of brutality
where they actually beat him to death.
And either as he was dying or as shortly after his death, Allah revealed to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah revealed to us he told us what that man's mindset was, as his own people whom he was trying to save.
Beat him to death. That man's mindset was our lair later call me Allama
he said to Allah Subhana Allah, oh how I wish my people would know
what after torturing me and killing me, what kind of fate and reward I have received from you, Oh Allah, I wish they would know.
So this tells us
that the Quran defines true men as people who are committed to their cause and they are selfless. And they're not afraid
of anyone except Allah subhanho wa taala.
Allah subhanaw taala further tells us in the Quran,
that of the believers or true men
who were true to their commitment to Allah subhanho wa Taala Mina Mina rial sada Kuma Had Allah Allah
that of the believers are men who are
there their masculinity embodies itself
and then fulfilling their commitment to Allah subhanho wa taala. When they make a commitment to Allah azza wa jal
they keep it they hold on to it.
They don't drop out.
They don't cave in. They don't give up. They don't quit.
And they do not break their promise to Allah subhanho wa taala. Once they give their word to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah they keep their word to Allah azza wa jal meaning more money in a region sada Kuma had Allahu ala at any expense.
And Allah Subhana Allah tells us that some of them
were killed and martyred. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah has peace and blessings and mercy be upon them.
And others, Allah Subhana Allah gave victory, but they were still committed to their cause. Victory, triumph
and success. achieving their goals doesn't make them forget their commitment to Allah subhanho wa Taala
because they're not in it for that they're in it for the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal
Minami Nina regional sada Kumar I had Allah Allah
subhana wa Amin, whom I
until the well never done with Abdullah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw Paul have not obeyed the law.
after sustaining severe wounds, he had neurological damage.
so severe that half of his body was paralyzed.
But that has never stopped working
and serving the community
and struggling for the community. Once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw him walking across the masjid,
struggling, yet he was still walking, coming to the masjid committed all the ALLAH and he eventually died in the battlefield, by the way.
And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw him, he said, had that
because that happened in the battle. He said, This man has fulfilled his commitment to Allah, he's done.
But he never stopped.
He was he was,
he wasn't killed, he survived. He saw the victories later, but the prophets of Allah and said, This man has fulfilled his commitment to Allah subhanho wa taala. He's from the people of Jenna, he's, he's done. He landed in June.
And we know this, one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lost and I and other person lost an arm. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to look at these individuals, as individuals who have body parts that are ahead of them. They're in Jannah. Some of them, some of them, some of their body parts made it to gender before they made a decision.
So this is the mindset of the believer.
Why? Because they're true in their commitment to Allah subhanaw taala they know that they, if they uphold their part of the bargain, and they uphold their commitment to Allah azza wa jal, Allah will hold his commitment.
True or not.
See that this is the problem.
We second guess, doubt Allah subhana wa etalon sometimes we do not deal with the Promise of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah as something that will actually happen, because we are weak in our commitment.
But Allah subhanaw taala is not weak subhanho wa Taala
we may break our commitment but Allah never breaks His commitment.
So Allah Subhana Allah describes them as people who do not who hold on to their bargain, and who fulfill their commitment to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Another example that is given to us and I'll conclude with this,
Allah Subhana Allah tells us what that when Musa alayhis salam.
When Musa alayhis salam wanted to lead his people into the promised land.
was not none of them were willing to follow him. There were two men that spoke to Real Men that a spoke and made a very strong statement.
These two men Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that they had two amazing qualities in this particular verse in Surah, two Matthew diverse 23 Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah Raju, Lani, Mina, Allah the Enya ha fauna, and I'm Allahu Allah Hema, or the whole bed fader, the how to move in volleyball and wide Allah He fit our Kelo income to many, besides the fact that again, true men speak up and advocate
for what is right.
Speak up against injustice.
Speak up and they try to correct the course
and awaken their communities.
They engage through men engage these two individuals out of the whole population, these two individuals and some scholars said that one of them was Joshua, you should have known May Allah's peace be upon him.
Allah azza wa jal describes them with two qualities number one,
besides the fact that they spoke up Yaja phone they fear Allah subhanaw taala
one thing that we know if you truly fear Allah, then you're not going to fear anyone else.
So that's what the first implies. They fear a lot. They fear no one else. People who don't fear Allah they fear everything else.
So one they fear Allah subhanaw taala so true men
are afraid of one thing and one thing only and that is Allah Subhana Allah and the consequences of their sins. Number two, and I'm Allahu Allah, Hema, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah bless them.
And we ask Allah and we begged him
every day to guide us to the straight path, the path of those who earned the name of Allah subhanaw taala Dena and I'm telling him here Allah azza wa jal says, Allahu Allah, Hema, so Allah Subhana Allah tells us, a true men are blessed to be part of that group of people.
And what is that group of people that earned the name of Allah? subhanaw taala Dena and I'm to Allah him we say every day or Allah guide us to the path of those
whom you have favored? Who are those people whom Allah Subhana Allah favor, you see, we have to make these connections, my dear brothers and sisters, we have to make these connections. What is Allah? What is the Quran trying to tell us?
What is the message here? Allah Subhana Allah to Allah said that these two individuals were of the favored ones who are the favored ones, Allah subhanaw taala says
but you cannot let in and I'm Allahu Allah Him, those who obey Allah and His Messenger, then they will truly be with those whom Allah favored. And Allah says, the ones whom Allah subhanaw taala favorite are four types of people when they begin prophets
again, while my eldest son Natalka, Ilari, Jalan Mina Nebby, Isla was sued the 18th and the truth will followers of these prophets and messengers.
What shahada in the martyrs those who stand their ground
and make the ultimate sacrifice
and die for their cause.
Those who have proven to be truthful, who died who lived upon the truth, and died upon the truth.
Not those who speak the loudest or those who are the most popular in an hirelateral amount of fitna to those who died upon the cause.
Was saw the hen and the righteous
whose actions are in alignment
with their speech.
May Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who listen to follow the best of what they listen to Apollo cola Sephora, Mahalia, welcome. First of all, we have Fila come in a hall of fame.
hamdu Lillahi wa salatu salam, ALA, Lillian of SAPA are back.
I feel very conflicted.
To really say much about the Universal Declaration Declaration of Human Rights.
I know this,
from studying the book of Allah Subhana Allah and the tradition of His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
made better declarations 1400 years ago
where he said that You all belong to Adam and Adam was created from dust. Where he said that in the eyes of God, the Almighty, we're all equal men are equal to women. Women are equal to men, black and white. Everyone is equal in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa taala.
It doesn't matter what race, what tribe, or what nationality you carry. We're all equal in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa taala.
And the one thing that distinguishes us from each other,
is our fear of Allah Subhana Allah our mindfulness of Allah azza wa jal
in the economic community in the light at
the most honorable in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala is the most pious, even Nasser in the Halacha comienza. Can anyone say Allah subhanaw taala says all mankind or human beings, we created you from a male and a female, which I'm not going to overlap a little out of. As for the diversity that you have is supposed to be celebrated. It's for you to get to know each other.
Not to abuse one another. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a declaration. He told the believers
you're all equals in the eyes of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah do not abuse one another. Don't wrong one another Poulan Muslim and Muslim in Haram
What I find so disheartening
and frustrating is that the very body that made this declaration is not extending many of these rights to my brothers and sisters,
And in many other parts of the Muslim world
I don't think they're being viewed or treated like human beings.
And this is really upsetting and frustrating. So therefore, I'm not going to say anything. I'm not going to really acknowledge any of this. Forgive me, I don't have much to comment.
And I should
be silent or be quiet. Because the prophets Allah, Allah Azza them says, mechanics rely heavily on will after affiliate Will Ferrell no laughs What He who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him say something good, something beneficial, or keep silent. So I'm going to keep silent insha Allah to Allah. However, there are very important activities taking place the Sunday in sha Allah azza wa jal, there is an important announcement to be made. So when brothers premier comes to make the announcement, please pay attention to it and participate in this event, anything that you can do to bring an end to this bloodshed
and restore peace in the Middle East, and in Gaza, in particular, anything that you can do, do not hesitate. And don't be afraid to speak the truth. May Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those
who advocate for what is right and what is true. And those who stand against injustice and wrongdoing. May Allah Subhana Allah is Peace and mercy be upon those who perished this week. And since the beginning of this vicious aggression, may Allah Subhana Allah have mercy be upon them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala welcome them in a better place and the place they left behind. May those who are wounded in those who lost their loved ones and those who are hurt and devastated may they be healed by Allah subhanho wa Taala May the rest of the key is happening. And may this lead to an awakening that will allow us to restore the lost dignity of our OMA or Bella attina Mila new Corrado
