weather

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

Why

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

are you

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

in a hurry

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

for either a man

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

in the middle

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

for

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

what

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

he has a

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

family and

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

as

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

a child

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

my brothers and sisters in snap

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

I remember that

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

I had mentioned once

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

that one of the early scholars

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

said

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

That when I feed my brothers, when I see my brother, when I invite my brothers and slap, people with whom I have this bond that we call Brotherhood is

00:10:15--> 00:10:19

when I see them eat from that which I have invited them over to me.

00:10:20--> 00:10:23

He said, I could feel

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

and I could sense the taste of what they eat in my own mouth.

00:10:29--> 00:10:34

I remember that some people were shocked when I mentioned this, is this man exaggerated?

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

Could it really get to this level?

00:10:40--> 00:10:46

I mean, as mothers, as people who care for one another,

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

as people who have authentic love

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

and admiration for one another,

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

you could actually

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

you could feel it,

00:10:59--> 00:11:07

you could enjoy it, simply because someone else that you care about and you love is enjoying

00:11:09--> 00:11:14

a brother and sister could get to this level. If there is authenticity,

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

if there is real commitment,

00:11:18--> 00:11:26

if there is clear understanding, for the foundation of this part, and this relationship that we call brotherhood,

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

you see the

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

stablish this from the beginning.

00:11:39--> 00:11:43

Because it is one of the pandemic, it's one of the most important

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

principles,

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

and one of the most critical

00:11:50--> 00:11:56

of the foundations of the Muslim community. So in the province of

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

Medina,

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

one of those

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

projects and one of those

00:12:06--> 00:12:10

matters that he started with, was to pair the components.

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

And he made sure that every one from the immigrants

00:12:16--> 00:12:22

is assigned to and he has one of the unsolved the helpers, the people of Medina, the vision

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

of Medina.

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

And he paired

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

and when we read in the seer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

how they took care of each other.

00:12:36--> 00:12:45

We should not be surprised because those people believe and committed and love what they believed in.

00:12:46--> 00:12:50

And because they loved what they believed it, and they committed, and it was not a burden.

00:12:52--> 00:13:02

It was a choice of theirs, that they were willing to give up everything for the love. At the same level, anyone that shared those sets of principles and beliefs with them.

00:13:06--> 00:13:18

And that's why you should not be surprised or shocked when you read the stories of the companions. Someone came to me he said, could really could this really be true? Could someone really offer

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

from the people of Medina

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

appeared with him.

00:13:30--> 00:13:33

Sad comes out and he says listen.

00:13:35--> 00:13:39

I know you're a stranger down here. You've got nothing, sir. Indeed.

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

I have two wives. Who are the most beautiful

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

women in Arabia, I

00:13:49--> 00:13:53

can't see which one of them is more pleasing to you. I will divorce from the commander.

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

And I have two of the best properties in Medina.

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

Go check them out. see which one you love the most.

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

And it's yours.

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

And of course

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

did not say

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

I can take advantage of this gentleman's great offer. What a

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

what a kindness.

00:14:19--> 00:14:22

And he's not saying well I hate to disappoint your brother. Okay, I'll accept.

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

He said

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

May Allah bless

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

your properties and mailbox of how best your family for you.

00:14:34--> 00:14:40

I don't want any of this. Just lead me to the marketplace. Show me the way

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

I will do it online.

00:14:46--> 00:14:53

Now some people find this very shocking. Could this really be true or is it just one of those exaggerations of our histories?

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

It could be true

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

and perhaps it is

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Because we do not understand, or because we have not yet connected

00:15:08--> 00:15:18

with the principles that brought these people together, these kinds of examples are shocking at times, it could be overwhelming for us to process

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

and understand.

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

You see the process of not only start with this.

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

But he continued throughout his life in Medina,

00:15:33--> 00:15:37

he continued to preach and teach

00:15:39--> 00:15:45

the companions of his companions, how to preserve and how to strengthen this bond.

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

He doesn't say, Well, here it is, this is it, take care of it, do it. And that's it, no.

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

They in and day out.

00:15:57--> 00:16:04

And therefore am keen to prohibit anything that might threaten or jeopardize this vital this relationship.

00:16:05--> 00:16:13

And the purpose of the law against anything that might weaken or break this tie, or this barn Cobra.

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

For the sake of the unity of the Omega street,

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

and

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

along with the province have

00:16:26--> 00:16:31

taught us all the things that we need to do, to preserve and to strengthen this one.

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

The Sahaba understood

00:16:36--> 00:16:36

that

00:16:38--> 00:16:42

one's faith will not be completed until he loves

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

me if you wonder how one could really feel

00:16:48--> 00:16:54

happy and enjoy someone, one of his brothers, accomplishing something.

00:16:55--> 00:16:57

Or find the taste

00:16:58--> 00:17:10

of the food that the other person is eating in his own mouth. And be happy for him in a time where we don't understand these kind of concepts, and a time where people have become so materialistic,

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

and so selfish,

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

and we only care about ourselves.

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

In order for you to understand this,

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

read the secret of the process of a loved

00:17:25--> 00:17:29

one of you will not be a true believer, he loves his brother when he loves himself.

00:17:31--> 00:17:36

Until his needs become as important or more important than mine.

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

Until his interest is as good

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

are even more important than my interests.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala praises them

00:17:58--> 00:18:01

because they give preference over themselves.

00:18:06--> 00:18:20

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in order for us to really finally connect with our, with what we claim to have the state that we claim to have a map of the principles I mean, in order for us to really find that place

00:18:22--> 00:18:52

in order for us to overcome this struggle that we have, trying to just feel the sweetness and appreciate this belief system that we have. In order for us to find that taste the promise of the law is required qualities one of which is to love someone to love your brother, for the sake of my sister to love your sister for the sake of when you love someone for the sake of why you love them truly, and honestly and authentically.

00:18:53--> 00:19:00

Then anything good that happens to them will bring you joy and make you excited and happy. You will be very happy for them.

00:19:01--> 00:19:09

And then evil or suffering that befalls them will distress you and cause you sadness.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

Brothers and sisters keep in mind

00:19:14--> 00:19:25

that if the affairs of the Muslims and what they go through, does not bother us. It does not concern us that we're not part of them. I say this and ask them lots of patterns.

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

Because of those, listen and follow them.

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

What have you been

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

up to

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

All right 1234

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

how do you

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

how do you

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

run away from with dahmen? Maddie?

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

Here, brothers and sisters,

00:20:28--> 00:20:32

all of you know that the situation

00:20:36--> 00:20:37

is worse.

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

And one of those

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

ironic, at the same time

00:20:52--> 00:20:56

mind boggling facts is that what is happening

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

is happening at the hands of people

00:21:02--> 00:21:06

whose ancestors were oppressed

00:21:08--> 00:21:12

and humiliated and mistreated throughout history.

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

Last week,

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

Dr. Nikki was here and he was

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

talking about how it was

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

such a prophet Musa

00:21:27--> 00:21:30

to remind his people of the dangers of the law with killing,

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

remind them of the days of a lot.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

Those days where the last panel with Allah,

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

give them victory over those who oppress them.

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

And reminder,

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

benefits a person in three ways.

00:21:51--> 00:21:55

When you are reminded of something, that number one,

00:21:57--> 00:22:00

it is a reminder for you to appreciate what you have now.

00:22:02--> 00:22:09

When you are reminded of something, it is for you to maintain appreciation, as you show gratitude for what you have.

00:22:10--> 00:22:13

That's why you are reminded, don't forget, don't forget,

00:22:16--> 00:22:16

number two.

00:22:18--> 00:22:24

It is for you to remember where you were, and what you went through and what happened to you.

00:22:28--> 00:22:33

So you do not do anything that will cause that to come back.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

If it is bad,

00:22:37--> 00:23:06

as it is something good that you're rewarded with. So you would do whatever it takes to get it back. When I remind you of something that are reminding you so you will if it's something good, that are reminding you that it is for you to go and do whatever it takes whatever you have done in the past earnings. And it is something that is the best situation and I'm reminding you, so you will avoid whatever it might lead to number three, in their situation in their case.

00:23:07--> 00:23:18

It is a reminder for them. So they will not inflict upon others what was inflicted upon themselves. They will not make others go through what they have gone through themselves.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

And I wonder how could any human

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

with a heart

00:23:27--> 00:23:35

go through a particular type of suffering, and then allow himself to be the cause of inflicting that upon another human being

00:23:37--> 00:23:49

this issue situation before what is happening now. I mean, the standards were they're subhuman standards, you would not you would not allow animals to live.

00:23:52--> 00:23:57

And this is something that I've gathered from eyewitnesses, people who have gone there and visited their their families.

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

You will not allow animals to live in those kinds of conditions.

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

And the whole world is titled

00:24:08--> 00:24:16

Why? Because simply it is being done by the State of Israel who can just get away with anything that it does.

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

And this heart has to stop and it has to come to an end.

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

And we are to speak against

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

and we have to move forward.

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

So we can get ourselves as the whole world out of this mess that we are suffering.

00:24:40--> 00:24:46

This is the very time that I was talking about last week and the week before that has to stop.

00:24:49--> 00:24:54

This is the time that we were told not to allow it to happen to us or anyone else.

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

And the sacred mercy in America or any other part of the

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

On Sunday, January 20,

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

of this year,

00:25:19--> 00:25:27

only power plant was forced to close due to blood shipments of few in the region.

00:25:31--> 00:25:36

And you can imagine what that might lead to, and what that actually led to.

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

And you have 1.5 million people

00:25:41--> 00:25:45

whose daily needs are pretty much,

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

pretty much not not

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

accessible.

00:25:57--> 00:26:07

Let me just read to you from what Islamic Relief has actually published, of the crisis facts 80% of the population is unemployed, or 80%.

00:26:10--> 00:26:22

Over two thirds of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip, are living in poverty, at least 1.3 million Palestinians are estimated to be food insecure.

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

Tell me where this fall

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

when it when we talk about progress

00:26:32--> 00:26:35

and feeling for others and caring for others.

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

If this does not

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

cause us to lose sleep.

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

If this is not disturbing enough,

00:26:46--> 00:26:49

I don't know what else has to happen to this format.

00:26:50--> 00:26:52

To realize the extent

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

of its misery.

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

Brothers and sisters,

00:26:59--> 00:27:05

today, the brozen relief and relief care also

00:27:07--> 00:27:17

has a box that is designated to collect funds to see who want to deliver any of those needs, to the people at

00:27:18--> 00:27:22

the same time, do not forget, that is not the only place.

00:27:23--> 00:27:29

So do not forget our most and most effective or most important and most effective to

00:27:31--> 00:27:34

do I wish I know that we have not been doing enough of

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

praise the last.

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

Number three, remember

00:27:42--> 00:27:48

that remember that you have a responsibility, personal responsibility, you can either

00:27:49--> 00:27:53

bring some good, or prevent some evil.

00:27:54--> 00:28:01

So find for yourself something to live for, and try to make a difference in the world.

00:28:02--> 00:28:06

Go and start your own project.

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

Even if it is having to work on your own,

00:28:11--> 00:28:19

even if it is having to stop some of your bad habits, even if it is starting to save and not waste your wealth.

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

So someone that really needs it could use it.

00:28:26--> 00:28:31

Even if it is going and starting and saying you know what I want to make a difference, I will start

00:28:34--> 00:28:38

sponsoring orphans and fell asleep or in Kashmir

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

or in Darfur,

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

or anywhere in the world.

00:28:44--> 00:28:57

So that I get someone from those who are suffering, those who lost their loved ones and those who support them in this crisis, which I have witnessed myself, I will offer them an opportunity

00:28:58--> 00:29:05

to live a better life and this is how I make a difference. This is my contribution.

00:29:06--> 00:29:15

So maybe that person will become one day he might become an Imam or he might become a daddy or he might become a doctor or you might become an engineer or he might become a statement.

00:29:16--> 00:29:24

And he will have the opportunity to live a healthy and balanced life because of you. And maybe that person

00:29:25--> 00:29:26

will bring

00:29:27--> 00:29:30

some change in the future and you will be the cause of it.

00:29:31--> 00:29:43

Something there is every one of us has and can make a difference and has the opportunity to do so find that opportunity. Find your niche and go and do something

00:29:46--> 00:29:46

as opposed

00:29:48--> 00:29:52

to live in pain and suffering. are brothers and sisters all over the world.

further

00:34:53--> 00:34:55

my brothers and sisters and

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

I am

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

Remember that?

00:35:03--> 00:35:04

I had mentioned once

00:35:06--> 00:35:07

that one of the early scholars

00:35:09--> 00:35:22

said that when I feed my brothers, when I see my brother, when I invite my brothers and snap, people with whom I have this bond that we call Brotherhood is

00:35:25--> 00:35:29

when I see them eat from that which I have invited them over to enjoy.

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

He said, I could feel

00:35:34--> 00:35:37

and I could sense the taste of what they eat in my own mouth.

00:35:39--> 00:35:43

I remember that some people were shocked when I mentioned this is this man exaggerated,

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

couldn't really get to this level.

00:35:50--> 00:35:55

I mean, as mothers, as people who care for one another,

00:35:58--> 00:36:01

as people who have authentic love

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

and admiration for one another,

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

you could actually

00:36:07--> 00:36:08

you could feel it,

00:36:09--> 00:36:16

you could enjoy it, simply because someone else that you care about and you love is enjoyable.

00:36:18--> 00:36:24

And brother and sister could get to this level. If there is authenticity,

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

if there is real commitment,

00:36:28--> 00:36:36

if there is clear understanding for the foundation of this barn, and this relationship that we call Brotherhood is

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

you see the promise of

00:36:43--> 00:36:47

stablish this from the beginning.

00:36:48--> 00:36:53

Because it is one of the pandemic, it's one of the most important

00:36:54--> 00:36:55

principles,

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

and one of the most critical

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

of the foundations of the Muslim community. So in the province of

00:37:07--> 00:37:08

Medina,

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

one of those

00:37:12--> 00:37:14

projects, and one of those

00:37:15--> 00:37:20

matters that he started with, was to pair the companions.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

And he made sure that every one from the immigrants

00:37:25--> 00:37:31

is assigned to and he has one of the unsolved the helpers, the people of Medina, the vision

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

of Medina.

00:37:35--> 00:37:36

And he paired,

00:37:39--> 00:37:42

and when we read in the seer of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam,

00:37:43--> 00:37:45

how they took care of each other.

00:37:46--> 00:37:54

We should not be surprised because those people believed and committed and love what they believed in.

00:37:56--> 00:38:00

And because they loved what they believed, and they committed and it was not a burden

00:38:01--> 00:38:12

was a choice of theirs, that they were willing to give up everything for. They loved at the same level, anyone that shared those sets of principles and beliefs with them.

00:38:15--> 00:38:28

And that's why you should not be surprised. Or when you read the stories of the companions. Someone came to me he said, could really could this really be true? Could someone really offer

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

from the people of Medina, the

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

period with him?

00:38:42--> 00:38:42

He says, Listen,

00:38:44--> 00:38:47

I know you're a stranger down here. You've got nothing.

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

Indeed.

00:38:50--> 00:38:54

I have two boys, who are the most beautiful

00:38:56--> 00:38:57

women in a raven

00:38:59--> 00:39:03

garden, see which one of them is more pleasing to you. I will divorcing the commander.

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

And I have two of the best properties in Medina.

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

Go check them out. see which one you love the most.

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

And it's yours.

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

And of course

00:39:20--> 00:39:21

did not say

00:39:22--> 00:39:25

I can take advantage of this gentleman's great offer.

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

What a kindness.

00:39:29--> 00:39:32

And he did not say well, I hate to disappoint your brother. Okay, I'll accept.

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

He said

00:39:36--> 00:39:38

May Allah bless

00:39:39--> 00:39:43

your properties and mailwasher bless your family for you.

00:39:44--> 00:39:50

I don't want any of this. Just lead me to the marketplace. Show me the way

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

and I will do it on my own.

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

Now some people find this very shocking. Could this really be true?

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Or is it just one of those exaggerations of our stories?

00:40:04--> 00:40:05

It could be true.

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

And perhaps it is.

00:40:09--> 00:40:16

And because we do not understand, or because we have not yet connected

00:40:17--> 00:40:30

with the principles that brought these people together, these kinds of examples are shocking at a time that could be overwhelming for us to process and understand.

00:40:31--> 00:40:34

You see the process of not only start with this,

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

but he continued throughout his life in Medina,

00:40:43--> 00:40:47

he continued to preach and teach

00:40:49--> 00:40:55

the companion for the purpose of his companions, how to preserve and how to strengthen this bond.

00:40:57--> 00:41:03

He didn't say, Well, here it is, this is it, take care of it, do it. And that's it, no

00:41:04--> 00:41:05

day in and day out.

00:41:07--> 00:41:14

And the 4am team to prohibit anything that might threaten or jeopardize this vital this relationship

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

and the purpose of the law against anything that might weaken or break this tie, or this bond Cobra

00:41:26--> 00:41:28

for the sake of the unity of the home industry,

00:41:33--> 00:41:34

along with the province of

00:41:36--> 00:41:41

taught us all the things that we need to do, to preserve and to strengthen this one.

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

The Sahaba understood

00:41:45--> 00:41:46

that

00:41:48--> 00:41:51

one's faith will not be completed until he loves

00:41:53--> 00:41:56

me if you wonder how one could really feel

00:41:57--> 00:42:04

happy and enjoy someone, one of his brothers, accomplishing something.

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

Or find the taste

00:42:08--> 00:42:20

of the food that the other person is eating in his own mouth. And be happy for him in a time where we don't understand these kind of concepts, in a time where people have become so materialistic,

00:42:21--> 00:42:22

and so selfish,

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

and we only care about ourselves.

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

In order for you to understand this,

00:42:31--> 00:42:38

read the secret of the province of love it was one of you will not be a true believer that he loves his brother what he loves for himself.

00:42:41--> 00:42:45

Until his needs become as important or more important than money

00:42:49--> 00:42:51

until his interest is as good

00:42:54--> 00:42:56

or even more important than my interest.

00:43:02--> 00:43:05

Allah, Allah praise the unsung

00:43:08--> 00:43:11

because they give preference over themselves.

00:43:15--> 00:43:30

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in order for us to really finally connect with our with what we claim to have the state that we claim to have, Hema, all the principles I mean, in order for us to really find that case.

00:43:31--> 00:44:02

In order for us to overcome this struggle that we have, trying to just feel the sweetness and appreciate this belief system that we have focused on in order for us to find that taste, the promise of the law is to have three qualities one of which is to love someone to love your brother, for the sake of my sister to love your sister for the sake of when you love someone for the sake of why you love them truly, and honestly and authentically.

00:44:03--> 00:44:10

Then anything good that happens to them will bring you joy and make you excited and happy. You'll be very happy for them.

00:44:11--> 00:44:18

And any evil or suffering that befalls them will distress you and cause you sadness.

00:44:21--> 00:44:22

Brothers and sisters keep in mind

00:44:24--> 00:44:35

that in the affairs of the Muslims and what they go through, does not bother us. It does not concerns that we're not part of them. I say this and ask lots of

00:44:37--> 00:44:38

those, listen and follow them

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

in

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

the

00:45:06--> 00:45:07

Well, how do you pick?

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

The right one?

00:45:17--> 00:45:19

How do you end up in America?

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

Have you been

00:45:29--> 00:45:29

away with

00:45:34--> 00:45:35

your brothers and sisters,

00:45:37--> 00:45:42

all of you know that the situation

00:45:46--> 00:45:47

is worse.

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

And one of those

00:45:53--> 00:45:55

ironic, at the same time

00:46:02--> 00:46:06

mind boggling facts is that what is happening

00:46:08--> 00:46:10

is happening at the hands of people

00:46:12--> 00:46:16

whose ancestors were oppressed

00:46:18--> 00:46:22

and humiliated and mistreated throughout history.

00:46:24--> 00:46:25

Last week,

00:46:27--> 00:46:30

Dr. Nikki was here and he was

00:46:31--> 00:46:35

talking about how it wasn't handled a data center profit center

00:46:36--> 00:46:39

to remind people of the dangers of a law which

00:46:42--> 00:46:44

reminds them of the days of a law.

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

Those days where it was handled with data,

00:46:50--> 00:46:52

give them victory over those who are pressing.

00:46:54--> 00:46:56

And reminder.

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

Benefits a person in three ways.

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

When you are reminded of something, the number one,

00:47:07--> 00:47:10

it is a reminder for you to appreciate what you have now.

00:47:12--> 00:47:18

When you are reminded of something, it is for you to maintain appreciation, and to show gratitude for what you have.

00:47:20--> 00:47:23

That's why you are reminded, don't forget, don't forget.

00:47:25--> 00:47:26

Number two

00:47:28--> 00:47:34

is for you to remember where you were, and what you went through and what happened to you.

00:47:38--> 00:47:42

So you do not do anything that will cause that to come back.

00:47:43--> 00:47:44

If it is bad,

00:47:47--> 00:48:16

as there is something good that you are rewarded with. So you would do whatever it takes to get it back. When I remind you of something, when I'm reminding you so you will, if it's something good, that are reminding you that it is for you to go and do whatever it takes whatever you have definitely past earnings. And it is something that is the best situation and I'm reminding you, so you will avoid whatever it might lead to number three, and their situation and their case.

00:48:17--> 00:48:28

It is a reminder for them. So they will not inflict upon others what was inflicted upon themselves. They will not make others go through what they have gone through themselves.

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

And I wonder how could any human

00:48:34--> 00:48:35

with a heart

00:48:37--> 00:48:44

those who through a particular type of suffering, and then allow himself to be the cause of inflicting that upon another human being.

00:48:47--> 00:48:59

The situation before what is happening now. I mean, the standards were there some human standards, you will not you will not allow animals to live.

00:49:01--> 00:49:07

And this is something that I've gathered from eyewitnesses, people who have gone there and visited their their families.

00:49:10--> 00:49:13

You will not allow animals to live in those kinds of conditions

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

as the whole world is titled.

00:49:18--> 00:49:26

Why? Because simply it is being done by the State of Israel who can just get away with anything that it does.

00:49:28--> 00:49:31

And this has to stop and it has to come to an end.

00:49:33--> 00:49:35

And we ought to speak against

00:49:37--> 00:49:39

and we have to move forward

00:49:41--> 00:49:46

so we can get ourselves and the whole world out of this mess that we are suffering.

00:49:50--> 00:49:56

This is the very title that I was talking about last week and the week before that has to stop.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

This is the type of work

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

That we were told not to allow to happen to us or anyone else.

00:50:05--> 00:50:09

In the sacred months in America, or any other part of the

00:50:12--> 00:50:13

continent.

00:50:23--> 00:50:25

On Sunday, January 20

00:50:26--> 00:50:27

of this year,

00:50:29--> 00:50:37

the only power plant was forced to close due to blood shipments of few intuition.

00:50:41--> 00:50:45

And you can imagine what that might lead to, and what that actually does.

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

And you have 1.5 million people

00:50:51--> 00:50:55

whose daily needs are pretty much

00:50:56--> 00:50:58

pretty much not not

00:50:59--> 00:51:00

accessible.

00:51:07--> 00:51:17

Let me just read to you from what Islamic Relief has actually published, of the crisis facts 80% of the population is unemployed, or 80%.

00:51:20--> 00:51:32

Over two thirds of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip, are living in poverty, at least 1.3 million Palestinians are estimated to be food insecure.

00:51:34--> 00:51:36

Tell me where this fall

00:51:38--> 00:51:40

when it when we talk about brotherhood

00:51:41--> 00:51:45

and feeling for others and caring for others.

00:51:47--> 00:51:48

If this does not

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

cause us to lose sleep.

00:51:52--> 00:51:54

If this is not disturbing enough,

00:51:56--> 00:51:58

I don't know what else has to happen to this.

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

To realize the extent

00:52:03--> 00:52:04

of its misery.

00:52:06--> 00:52:07

Brothers and sisters,

00:52:08--> 00:52:14

today, the brothers inside relief and live care also

00:52:16--> 00:52:27

has a box that is designated to collect funds to see if they're going to deliver any of those needs. For the people that

00:52:28--> 00:52:31

the same time Do not forget, that is not the only place.

00:52:33--> 00:52:39

So do not forget our most and most effective or most important and most effective tool. And that is

00:52:41--> 00:52:43

do I wish I know that we have not been doing it.

00:52:45--> 00:52:46

Pray for the last.

00:52:48--> 00:52:51

Number three, remember

00:52:52--> 00:52:52

that remember

00:52:53--> 00:53:03

that you have responsibility, personal responsibility, you can either bring some good, or prevent some evil.

00:53:04--> 00:53:16

So find for yourself something to live for, and try to make a difference in the world. Go and start your own project.

00:53:17--> 00:53:20

Even if it is having to work on your own,

00:53:21--> 00:53:29

even if it is having to stop some of your bad habits, even if it is starting to save and not waste your wealth.

00:53:30--> 00:53:34

So someone that really needs it could use it.

00:53:35--> 00:53:41

Even if it is going and starting and saying you know what I want to make a difference, I will start

00:53:43--> 00:53:48

sponsoring orphans and fell asleep or in Kashmir

00:53:49--> 00:53:50

or in dog food

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

or anywhere in the world.

00:53:54--> 00:54:07

So that I give someone from those who are suffering, those who lost their loved ones and those who support them in this crisis, which I have witnessed myself, I will offer them an opportunity

00:54:08--> 00:54:14

to live a better life and this is how I make a difference. This is my contribution.

00:54:16--> 00:54:24

So maybe that person will become one day he might become an Imam or he might become a daddy or he might become a doctor or he might become an engineer or he might become a statement.

00:54:26--> 00:54:35

And he will have the opportunity to live a healthy balanced life because of you. And maybe that person will bring

00:54:37--> 00:54:53

some change in the future and you will be the cause of it. Do something there is every one of us has and can make a difference and has the opportunity to do so find that opportunity find your niche and go and do something.

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

Else Allah subhanho wa Taala to live in pain and suffering

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

Brothers and sisters all over the world.

00:55:09--> 00:55:10

Love and relatives.

00:55:17--> 00:55:17

But he said

00:55:19--> 00:55:19

a lot more.

00:55:53--> 00:55:54

Hello

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

Christ God

00:56:03--> 00:56:04

alone

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

falling

00:56:07--> 00:56:08

in love with

00:56:10--> 00:56:11

a loved one

00:56:23--> 00:56:24

COVID getting

00:56:30--> 00:56:31

even better.

00:56:37--> 00:56:40

The other piece of memory in your drive our Brother

00:56:42--> 00:56:48

Jerry, he passed away yesterday morning after a lot of suffering with cancer. This is the same brother that we had

00:56:49--> 00:56:50

less

00:56:51--> 00:56:53

two months ago actually last year.

00:56:54--> 00:57:02

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make gender his abode and so content forgiveness and mercy

00:57:12--> 00:57:15

the lovely camel syntax in later videos I

00:57:17--> 00:57:19

went along as

00:57:23--> 00:57:24

far as
