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

All praise is due to Allah. We praise Him. We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide I testify that there is none worthy of our worship and devotion but the Almighty Allah alone. And I testify that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was sending them is His servant and His Messenger or you who believe we are Allah as you should be feared and dynata accept as Muslims in a state of submission and surrender to your Lord, all mankind. be dutiful, pure Lord, Who created you

00:02:59--> 00:03:40

from a single person and from him he created his wife. From them both he created many men and women, and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is Ever and all water over you, or you who believe it's your duty to Allah, Be Your him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are the divine words of the almighty Allah. And the best guidance

00:03:41--> 00:03:58

is that of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ala who were early he was sending them and the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters for all the annuity invented matters in religion, or innovation and bigger and every Buddha is misguidance.

00:04:02--> 00:04:09

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the authentic hadith collected by Al Bukhari and Muslim while Ali has Salatu was Salam.

00:04:10--> 00:04:14

Mahmoud ibutton is still at la hora yet and

00:04:15--> 00:04:22

you're more to yo me or more to ah Hua Hua Shan LA home. Help llama Allahu Allah, he'll join

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

every person to whom Allah entrusted some dependence or some subordinates to

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

and the moment this person death comes to this person, the moment they leave this world

00:04:40--> 00:04:51

if they leave this world in a state where they have not fulfilled their responsibility to those under their command, those under their charge under their authority,

00:04:52--> 00:04:56

except that they would never find the smell of gin.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Meaning they will never enter

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

And Allah will not allow will not allow them into Jana.

00:05:04--> 00:05:08

And another authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam says

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

we'll look Umrah in what could look homeschooled on Android a Yeti.

00:05:15--> 00:05:29

But what EULA and PBT here were homeschooled and unblocked a Yeti will not Atolla a atone PBT Zoji her ye ms o Latin Angela Yeti, ha. Put a look on Morocco in Morocco, Luca Massoud on under here,

00:05:30--> 00:05:34

each one of you is in a position of responsibility,

00:05:35--> 00:05:36


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

And they will they will be questioned,

00:05:42--> 00:05:47

they will have to answer with that responsibility and that authority.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

The man in the house is in charge.

00:05:53--> 00:05:57

And he will be questioned about his responsibility.

00:05:58--> 00:06:40

The woman in her household is in charge. And she will be questioned about her responsibility. Everyone is in a position of responsibility and they will be asked about it meaning they will be held accountable on the day of judgment for that responsibility. So their dependents have rights upon them, that they have to fulfill his authority comes with accountability, power, influence, comes with more responsibility and more questions by Allah subhanho wa taala. This is how it works in Islam. And why are we talking about this today?

00:06:42--> 00:06:47

Because it's easy, in the thick of the events that are happening

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

in the pain

00:06:51--> 00:06:56

that is caused by the atrocities and the violations to

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

human life.

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

basic human needs

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

obvious human dignity

00:07:06--> 00:07:24

that is violated in the most atrocious and most vicious and most violent and most satanic ways. And yet, you can see that there is a lot of justification around for that. There is a lot of political sugarcoating.

00:07:26--> 00:07:41

And there are people who still defend evil, destruction, death and crying. Yes, and we are appalled by that. And every sensible human being should be appalled, appalled by that.

00:07:42--> 00:07:47

But in the midst of this, we should not forget that

00:07:49--> 00:07:50


00:07:51--> 00:07:54

cannot be pushed away by tactics or impulse,

00:07:56--> 00:08:02

a strategy, a strategy that is built over time and synchronized at so many levels.

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

It cannot be resisted with impulse

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

and some kind of immediate action. This is a Rule of Life.

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

And if you look at Islam itself,

00:08:19--> 00:08:24

Islam contains so many strategies. Islam itself is a long term strategy.

00:08:25--> 00:08:41

And it is an all encompassing strategy in the sense that it makes you if you follow its creed, its tenants, its beliefs, its values, its commands,

00:08:42--> 00:08:57

its prescriptions, its lifestyle. It will position you strategically, against any opposing way of life, that is based on evil and destruction.

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

And it's only when Muslims

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

fail to hold on to that trust that was given to them by Allah.

00:09:07--> 00:09:16

Only then other strategies and other ways of life are able to inflict harm and wreak havoc.

00:09:17--> 00:09:29

This is a fact that we should never grow heedless of, regardless of our pain, regardless of the wrongs and the mistakes and the crimes of people who don't truly believe in Allah.

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

People who embrace evil as a way of life,

00:09:35--> 00:09:46

we should not forget that any kind of conflict and any kind of competition in life. It is multifaceted. There are so many fronts.

00:09:48--> 00:09:55

And when a runt is set on fire, we should never grow heedless of the list of the fronts.

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

And this is how

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

many civil law

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

as Asians were wiped out, many armies were defeated

00:10:05--> 00:10:22

when their attention is completely captured on one front, and that works, or is used sometimes and utilized as a distraction, to create a lot of loopholes, where there can be destroyed and they can be hit really hard.

00:10:28--> 00:10:33

I want to draw the attention of parents, as we see the children of Uzza

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

are being slaughtered

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

at sea if their life holds no value whatsoever.

00:10:43--> 00:10:47

And justification is done by the political elites

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

in the most despicable fashions,

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

and for the most exposed at the probably been one of the most exposed moments in history.

00:10:59--> 00:11:04

We find justification for crime, for violation of human rights,

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

for violation of humanity,

00:11:08--> 00:11:14

and violation of all will be global and international commitments and agreements.

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

We have to realize

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

that the destruction

00:11:25--> 00:11:47

that is leveled at the Muslims and their faith and their email and their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala is encroaching from so many different levels. And our attention should should not be fully consumed by where there is a lot of action. And as the Arab say, many here you're headed.

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

A cautious person is usually bitten from where they feel they are most safe.

00:11:59--> 00:12:03

As the children of hazard are being killed without mercy, without concern,

00:12:05--> 00:12:38

because those who are bombarding them see them as legitimate targets. Yes, they know that birthrate, they know that a greater population is one of the greatest greatest sources of power, and it alters this tales of power. It's not an accident. It's not an accident around himself knew that. And Allah said, you would have been a home waster here is our home, when filled out and filled with threats from Benny Israel, the children of Israel.

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

What did he do?

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

He killed their infants, their newly born children.

00:12:47--> 00:13:16

He knew that. And this strategy continues until today and until the Day of Judgment, those who worship the Shavon and those who have submitted their lives in the heart to Shavon. They will do what Shavon tells them to do. They will commit the unthinkable and the unspeakable, they will do it. Without their eyes blinking. They have no concern. It's a way of life.

00:13:17--> 00:13:23

It's a strategy. It's a worldview for them. So when the children of Azhar being massacred,

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

we have to realize that death is not only the death of the body,

00:13:31--> 00:13:31

there is death

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

that is targeted

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

at our children

00:13:39--> 00:13:46

at the spiritual level, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, will fitna to usher domainer cultural

00:13:47--> 00:14:04

fitna, the fitna of confusion, confusing people about the true confusing people about the reality of this life, bringing about bounce into the hearts of people. Allah says fitna this fitna is greater than murder. Yes,

00:14:05--> 00:14:11

immunoglobulin Rahim Allah Allah says, For in a multi Obeah shirt domain multi button

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

for the depth of the heart is greater

00:14:17--> 00:14:37

and more serious than the depth of the body for in a motel bed and yet and it Dunia were moved to Columbia, Canada he is searching for the death of the body cuts you off from this worldly life. Whereas the death of the heart cuts you off from Allah.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

That's why you'll fit in to

00:14:40--> 00:14:46

the slipknot confusion, don't spoiling people's religions and their faith.

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

That is this is greater than murder.

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

It doesn't seem as vicious, but it's more destructive.

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

And this is something that we can do something

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


00:15:02--> 00:15:08

there is very little that we can do to save the people of Gaza momentarily Now, other than what most people are doing.

00:15:10--> 00:15:40

We don't have the political power as much as we would like to. In order to save lives of innocent people from every walk of life in Islam, the innocent life belongs to Allah, humans cannot violate it. Regardless of the religion, regardless of the race or any other consideration. life belongs to Allah, humans have no right to violate it. For those who think that Muslims don't hold any value for life, except for Muslim life, that's not true.

00:15:42--> 00:15:54

And those who fish in murky waters, in Islam, the human life is sanctified. Because humans have a right to be in this test of this life. Only Allah gives life and takes life.

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

And murder is one of the greatest crimes in Islam.

00:15:59--> 00:16:10

Regardless, whatever banner or title or label you put in it, even if you give it a good name, some Muslims give murder a good name. But it's still evil.

00:16:12--> 00:16:18

Just as like, the politicians today put a good label a beautiful label on the murder of innocent people.

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

Islam doesn't approve of that, whether it's done by Muslims or non Muslims.

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

But there is something we can do.

00:16:29--> 00:16:34

Because there is a lot of a lot of attack on the hearts of the younger generation.

00:16:35--> 00:16:43

Things that cause them confusion about this life and what it means about Allah, about the truth of Islam.

00:16:46--> 00:16:53

And about how to live in this life and how to be about their morality, and their moral conduct.

00:16:55--> 00:17:00

And that bombardment is no less than the massacres that are taking place.

00:17:02--> 00:17:07

And we have to own up to our responsibility as parents, and educators.

00:17:10--> 00:17:20

What you children consume, what they are exposed to, and on social media, in the video games that brainwash them

00:17:24--> 00:17:41

and what they learn in different institutions around the ideological stuff that is being fed to them from a young age from the tender age of being given a toddler, and we ourselves, handle our children to those who indoctrinate them and confuse them.

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

Aren't we going to be questioned about that by Allah?

00:17:52--> 00:18:12

Why are we only concerned about this worldly life and being alive here? When the hearts of our children of our future generation are under flagrant attack and we know it and we see it and most of us think there is very little that we can do. Because we're not owning up to owning up to a responsibility.

00:18:14--> 00:18:34

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, yeah, you have Latina, O and Bucha como le from now on Roku Hannahs? Will Java or you who believe protect yourself shield yourselves and your family, your dependents? The ones under your responsibility, shield them from a fire whose fuel

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

is rocks, stones and human beings?

00:18:42--> 00:18:50

Do you have an answer to Allah, about your children? Have you fulfilled? That's the question that you should ask yourself squarely face to face.

00:18:51--> 00:19:07

When Allah makes me stand on the Day of Judgment, holds me accountable. asked me about my children and the fitna and the confusion that is bombarded at them. Do I have any hand in it? By facility? Did any of it

00:19:08--> 00:19:18

is Was there any choice that I had that I could exercise even at hardship and difficulty and inconvenience that I ran away from and turned a blind eye to

00:19:20--> 00:19:27

rely have a convincing God so before Allah subhanaw taala that will save my neck from the hellfire? That's a question that you should ask yourself

00:19:29--> 00:19:33

because it tells you those who will massacre the children and the innocent women and men.

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

That's what they feared the most. And they know what

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

the onslaught is on the hearts

00:19:44--> 00:19:51

because when Muslims The hearts are corrupted the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even pointed out what this state is.

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

He said that people will gather upon you against you

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

and will

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

devour you as they eat from a platter of food from a feast.

00:20:07--> 00:20:21

You become so approachable. You're within reach. You are easy to be eaten and to be preyed upon. No resistance just like food is available to someone who's hungry and it's right within his reach

00:20:26--> 00:20:34

to the Companions asked on Messenger of Allah a woman kiloton nano Yama, if any of us will Allah, will that be because we will be few in number?

00:20:36--> 00:20:51

Because that's what the human mind jumps to. We're outnumbered. Is that why we are such an easy prey? It's such an easy it's like sitting ducks. The Prophet SAW Salam said LA when I can come over, come with Exede

00:20:52--> 00:20:57

you will be like this come on the surface of a stream or a river

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

is scum the filth

00:21:02--> 00:21:05

has no weight and has no control.

00:21:07--> 00:21:10

The stream carries it wherever it goes.

00:21:13--> 00:21:29

Well Enzian Hola Hola. Hola Toby, I do we come on my hand but an income while I have a different nephew who become only one, the last shall remove from the hearts of those who have enmity towards you. Allah shall remove from the hearts any fear of you.

00:21:33--> 00:21:44

Allah was removed from their hearts every fear of you know deterrence. You're not even you don't pose any kind of resistance or threat or anything.

00:21:48--> 00:21:55

Well, I have a defendant fu colo be commonly one and Allah shall throw into your cast into your hearts and one

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

male one is weakness.

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

Called we are rasool Allah woman when we are Rasul Allah, Allah who would dunya Makara. Here to note

00:22:06--> 00:22:21

what is what and oh Messenger of Allah, He said, Love of this dunya infatuation with this dunya attachment to this worldly life, to the treasures, to the fame, to the riches,

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

to the enjoyment, to the entertainment, to the reputation,

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

to the clothing, to the food, to the delicacies, to the vacation, vacations,

00:22:34--> 00:22:53

to the attractions of this worldly life, you become so obsessed with it, you worship it. That's weakness, and you have corruption in your heart. And you would hate death, you would be like you would abhor death. The notion of death threatens to take away the dunya that you fell in love with.

00:22:56--> 00:23:00

And that's when you are easily taken and preyed upon.

00:23:02--> 00:23:18

That's the corruption of the heart. And you know what, there is so much that we can do, there is so much that we can do about that, before it even happens. And in many cases, it hasn't happened yet, but it's on the way, and we are the ones who are contributing to it.

00:23:20--> 00:23:28

There are many parents who don't realize that the education of your child of your son or your daughter is upon you.

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

To teach them who Allah is.

00:23:32--> 00:23:37

What this life is really about, who Prophet Muhammad, Salah Salem is what they should do with this life.

00:23:40--> 00:23:51

It's your responsibility. It's not the responsibility of the local Imam or the Quran teacher. These people are volunteering to help out, you will be asked about them.

00:23:52--> 00:23:55

Don't be deluded by the formalities.

00:23:57--> 00:24:02

You are to be questioned about it. You are to be asked, Allah will ask you about that.

00:24:04--> 00:24:14

Oh, I'm busy. I don't have time. I have to work two jobs, then think again about your life choices. That's not a healthy lifestyle.

00:24:16--> 00:24:25

When you don't have time to spend with your kids, you yourself are not educating your kids or not enlightening them or not reminding them or not be reading befriending them.

00:24:27--> 00:24:47

That's your responsibility. Oh, the mother will do that. That will not absolve you of the responsibility. It's still your obligation. And there is a powerful machine that is funded by billions of dollars for ideologies, to corrupt the hearts of the younger generation.

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

And you think with some wishful thinking and taking some chances that you will be able to survive and your kids will come out of all of this. All of this contamination. I

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

All of this indoctrination they will come out of it safe somehow.

00:25:06--> 00:25:09

Holy Holy cow that was tough for a lot of you were looking for stuff

00:25:18--> 00:25:29

Alhamdulillah here or below Alameen wa salatu salam ala large fluffy Morrissey linseed in mid while earlier he was hobby edema hain. Well, yes, this is not a popular topic.

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

And it doesn't give you a hype.

00:25:34--> 00:25:42

On the contrary, it's bitter and sour, and it's painful and it's uncomfortable. It's inconvenient. I get that.

00:25:43--> 00:25:45

But it's easy to ride any popular wave.

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

But we should not forget the responsibilities.

00:25:53--> 00:26:04

This life is not about entertainment. The truth is not necessarily entertaining. Sometimes you have to look yourself in the face. And you have to say the bitter truth and embrace it.

00:26:05--> 00:26:23

Because that's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Phil Jana Toby McCurry will fit in now to wish you Howard. But Jana was surrounded was covered from us. With what? With hardships, with challenges with things that are not necessarily popular and agreeable.

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

And the Hellfire has been surrounded by attractions, temptations.

00:26:29--> 00:26:33

Don't fall for the fall for the face value of beings.

00:26:35--> 00:27:12

When we obey Allah subhanaw taala that's the best strategy. And yes, we have a public responsibility. But we also have a private responsibility to fix our own hearts to maintain our own hearts. strengthen our relationship with the book of Allah with the Quran with the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim. teach ourselves Islam day in and day out, then teach our family implement it, live it live by it, live by the instructions of Islam, the beautiful morality of Islam, live by it. Day in and day out until you become better at it day, every day. That's how it works.

00:27:14--> 00:27:56

And then you educate your family and the people around you. Islam is about goodness, it's about benevolence, benevolence, benevolence, it's about loving Allah, it's about the truth. And as Muslims, we have a responsibility to share the good, shake the good with others. Islam teaches us that we want good for us. We wish that all of humanity is safe from the hellfire and they make it to paradise. And that's a wish and the trust that Allah gave us and we are supposed to fulfill. But you know what? We just go so busy or too busy with ourselves. When we say To hell with others, we don't care. But Allah subhanaw taala says what cada? Anika Jana Mata was a little porno shahada alumna,

00:27:56--> 00:28:08

Seaway, hakuna Rasulullah, they come Shahida we have made you an exemplary a model for other people's. So you guide them and the Prophet saw them as a model for you.

00:28:09--> 00:28:13

We hope we have a responsibility and it's not about preaching.

00:28:14--> 00:28:35

The truth when it stands when it's manifested in you, it shows it awakens people's fitrah it attracts their hearts, it awakens the most beautiful part of who they are the truth in them, it awakens that. But you know what, when people, for the most part, see Muslims, and again, for the most part, there are hamdulillah there are good people around.

00:28:37--> 00:28:50

But for the most part, when they see Muslims, they don't see much difference, especially when it comes to personal conduct. They don't see much difference. So we act as the screen between them and the truth of Islam.

00:28:52--> 00:28:56

That's a personal responsibility and the public responsibility.

00:28:59--> 00:29:08

Our life should abide by what Allah subhanaw taala instructs, that's the only way out. That's the only way out for everyone.

00:29:10--> 00:29:22

And obviously, the beautiful solidarity, the Muslims and some of the good non Muslims who have good hearts and have something alive in them still the solidarity they show

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

to the victims in Palestine in the person

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

and those who are able to speak the truth in public and have some kind of influence

00:29:35--> 00:29:50

and show the tyrants and the liars and the people of deception. Put them in the right place. These are still good things. We cherish them, we celebrate them and we appreciate them. But that should not make us feel that we are

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

delivered or that we are free from the responsibility that Allah put upon ourselves. See deeper than what is happening in front of your eyes.

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

If there is more, and remember, a strategy can never be defeated by impulse.

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

A very well divided strategy requires a more powerful and more wiser strategy. That's the only thing that will undo it. And the work of Shavonne is so orchestrated and organized, and the work of the believers in order to undo the work of Chopin. We need to act with purpose. We need to act with vision, we need to act with balance.

00:30:32--> 00:30:43

And it's not like when atrocities happen, we wake up, and then we go to sleep, then we wait for the next atrocity. You wake up, and then we go to sleep. That's not how we are supposed to work.

00:30:44--> 00:30:51

Being good. Being a devout servant of Allah is not a part time job. That what your life is about.

00:30:53--> 00:31:08

And this is what life is about. And it's all about goodness. And it's about sharing what's good and the truth and what swipes and wanting the best for everyone. Allahumma filet mignon and we'll meet at one Muslim in a Muslim Abdullah Haman on what

00:31:09--> 00:31:30
