all praise and thanks to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala
who is no doubt our creators sustain and nourish, protect and cure. We ask him the almighty the exalted to shower his choices, the blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam why his family members his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of
my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, first and foremost, I advise myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to be conscious of your maker during every single second of your lives, if you wish to attain success in this world as well as the hereafter. melas kind of Medina make us all from the people of taqwa and may He make us from the victorious and successful ones me.
Our maker subhanho wa Taala. He created all of creation, and he chose certain of his creation to be superior over certain of his creation, as Allah says in the Quran, WA buka Luca nyesha
that your Lord he creates what He wills and he chooses what He wills. Lanza, Virgil created the gardens of Paradise and as we all know, he chose genital for those to be the highest and grandest of all gardens. He created the angels and he chose certain angels to be grand, more powerful and more greater than other angels like jabril like Makai, like his Rafi, like molecule mo de la salatu salam, Allah is the Virgil appointed prophets, and he chose certain profits to be most special, not more greater than other profits like we have the oralism the five great profits. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, New Orleans LA to Santa moussaka to Sarah Elisa Elisa to Solomon Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, Elias who created the Imam the nation's and then he chose the Nation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to be the best and the greatest of nations, that is you and I aligned so Virgil created time and he chose certain seasons to be greater and more blessed than other seasons, like the month of Ramadan, like the first 10 days of the last, like the last 10 nights of Ramadan like little other, which is better than 1000 months.
And likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala created lands, Allah subhanho wa Taala created places and chose certain places, certain lands to be more blessed more just than other lands. And from these lands, we have Mecca and Medina. We have Mecca and Medina, something that we are all aware of, in terms of the virtues in terms of the blessings of Mecca and Medina, we have many reports from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But after these two lands, there is a land that is often mentioned, and also to why he said a long while he really was enemies reported to have spoken greatly about these lands, and they are none other than belong to Sham, the lands of Sham Allah and
Allah subhanho wa Taala himself states in the noble Koran in terms of the Baraka in terms of the blessings of these lands.

To mercy the apostle, la de bolotnaya Hola. And then Allah says Mr. de la casa and the lens that surround Mr episode that we have blessed.
And when we talk about the term Sham, today it is loosely or translated, if you will as Syria, but classical hsiang includes a couple of lands, like the lands of Philistine the lands of Palestine, the lands of Yemen, the lands of Jordan, the lands of Lebanon, all these lands are included in sharm and they've all been blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
This is a land or lands where Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the prophets to make Egypt or two we have the eye of Allah subhanho wa Taala states when a jayna who Aloo con el de la te Bharat nafi Khalid either mean, and we saved the Gina who illusion we saved Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam and Luca salatu salam, ala Atilla t Barak nafi had towards a land that we have blessed for me and for the people to come. The words we are blessed those lands the lands of Sham
in terms of Mousavi, salatu salam, Allah azza wa jal states
at Baraka, Allah subhanho wa Taala states that musala salami told his people all my people enter the lands that have been blessed by Allah and other mocha Desa bless it lands the lens of Sham, but Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the Mona Lisa to ceram what is today mana rehouse integer EBM rahila latinity Baraka again Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned that today monnalisa to Salaam was given control of the winds. He was a very powerful King, a powerful Prophet, who had been given the kingdom or other the control the dominion of animals, of the jinn of the winds, but Allah subhanho wa Taala, a powerful ruler, and the winds were subject to his command, and the winds carried him to
a land that Allah subhanho wa Taala states that we have blessed the lands of Sham
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith that has been recorded in the book of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah He is reported said along the lines of these words, he is reported to have prayed for the lands of Sham for the people of Sham as it all bless our sham. And the amazing point is at that time, Rasulullah Islamism was making the the people of Sham or the lands of Sham had not embraced Islam as yet. The Christians were in the lens of Sham and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is praying for the lens of Sham
and then the people around the province ally Elisa Lam, they prompted the Prophet sallallaahu because at the end of the day, this is a powerful draw made by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they prompted him Yasuda Allah make dua for our lands as well and they started to mention their lands as soon liason. Allison and listen to them and he is reported to have said, his report to have made to Allah bless our lands of Sham again. And then again the people prompted the professor ladies in our lands and they go on to mention the lands and once again the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Allah bless our lands of Sham thrice all of this the lands of Sham Allah bless the lands of Sham, Allah
bless the lands of Sham
in one particular Hadith.
So lysyl is lm is reported to have mentioned that my mother was talking about his mother. Before giving birth to me she saw a dream, a dream in which a light
emitted from her and it was focused and directed towards the lens of Sham, a light emerged from the mother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and made its way towards the lens of Sham, eliminating the palaces and dimensions of Sham
His report, he said tuba
glad tidings be under the lens of Sham and the people of Sham, glad tidings be and to the people of Sham and the Sahaba. They asked the prophets analysis of why Yasuda law what is the reason what is the Sabbath the reasoning behind this aerosolized enemies reporter said I see the angels descending and covering the lands of Sham and the people of Sham with their wings Allahu Akbar. Such beautiful and blessed lands lands that have been blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reported on this Hi this is a record of the book of
I saw angels carrying a beam alight towards Billa the Sham towards the lands of Sham
the almost as if the Prophet said alone while he already was Selim was just sent for the people of Sham and the lens of Sham because he said a long while he already was sending me his report wrapped up extensively I mentioned so much about the lens of Sham and light
Likewise media brothers and others in Islam before why so long while you were SLM is also reported to have said, he is also report predicted many trials many tribulations surrounding the people of Sham surrounding the people of Sham, one particular companion, or the alone one is reported to have said this these are his words are not the words the professor lyocell but he is mentioning things from the unseen world. So it has to be that he must have heard it from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. His report to have said and if I'm not mistaken, Simon will say you know the last one who is saying that the trials and tribulations that will be put upon the people of Sham will be
continuous. And the narration goes along the lines of these words. When the trials die down, the trials will start emerging from another place, they will be put through many, many trials and tribulations until finally a call I will call out from the heavens and name the Amir of the Muslim in the leader of the Muslim moon, the leader that we are supposed to follow.
And apart from that in terms of the lands of Sham, we all know from the major signs of the day of the AMA. We have 10 major science salicylate Alison has mentioned these signs in detail and he is reported to have said until the science aka the day of the AMA will not come to
will not come into reality.
10 signs and from these signs the last sign is now on the podium in Korea, a fire that will emerge from the lens of Yemen and it will gather the remaining mankind upon a land that will be white in color. And according to most scholars, the land is from the lands of shark, the lions of shark and Isa
will kill the jungle within the lines of Sham. So many occurrences so many events to take place in these blessed and powerful lands. Some people have the misconception that the day of the AMA will take place in the lands of Sham know the people will be gathered and then the Trumpet will be blown. And then the day of the AMA will take place but not in the lens of Sham. And another narration the Prophet Allah Islam is reporter I've said that towards the latter stages of fragrant breeze will blow from the lands of Shang and it will touch all of the remaining believers. And now sooner the believers they smell this fragrance. They will start to develop SOS wounds in their armpits and they
will die because of that all the believers will die and then only the sinners the criminals the transgressors will remain and then the day of gamma will take place. The front porch will be blown and everyone will perish. So many mentions of these lands the lands of Shang and today What is happening?
the lands of Sham are bleeding.
The lines of Shang are bleeding along
the lines of Syria are bleeding. And we we live in another part of the world. But voila here we have become numb now.
We scroll through our news feeds. We see the carnage. We see the massacres, we see the killings. We see all of this and we have become numb to it. Yes, it is from the predictions of the province of Islam that towards the latter stages. How about you will take place and what is how much is excessive killing. And yes, it is happening wherever you look. So many hundreds and 1000s of people being killed and massacred on a daily basis. Children innocent children being carpet bombed, barrel bombs, all kinds of atrocities taking place, but we have become numb beliee we have become numb. And because of that we have to check our email.
Personalized analysis report we have said that the boom of Mohammed said a long while ago when he was silom is like one body is like one one body.
If one limb aches in a body, what happens all the other limbs ache in response and the body develops a fever. All the other limbs start to ache just because one finger of yours is hurting. It doesn't mean that you can forget about that finger. Now the entire body aches in response to that tiny finger. Let it be this tiny little finger of yours if you are in pain, say you're making your way out of MSG. Then you jam your finger by the dough. Can you just forget about Oh, it's just a tiny finger. Forget about it. My entire body I mean 99% of my body is fine. I don't have to be worried about that. 1% No, the entire body will ache in response. You will shriek you will yell you will
take your hand away and you will cry out in pain and you will feel the pain the throbbing pain in your tiny finger.
That is the analogy that is the example given to us by me
Mr. Long while you ready to sell them in terms of his oma, that is you and I
just imagine if we were to go through such suffering, like they are going through mela, save us all. Don't you think we will want them to ache in response? Don't you think we will want them to stand up with us? Don't you think we will want them to make dua for us? Likewise, they are crying out for help. Just a few days back, I'm sure.
The majority of us the 99% of us, all of you who are on social media, you would have witnessed it. And even if you are not on social media, all the main media news outlets covered it.
The people of Aleppo, the people of high level, were putting out videos, their last moments, they feared that this would be their last moments. They were all putting out videos, sisters, brothers, elders, they were putting out videos, emotional tear, jerking one line,
stating that this could be my last tweet. This could be my last social media post. This could be my last video was here we are taking pictures of our burgers, taking pictures of our lovely fine dining dinners, taking pictures of our celebrations. And here we are, some of us are getting ready to celebrate New Year. Allahu Akbar.
Whilst our brethren our brothers and sisters are bleeding and suffering.
How can we even think to call ourselves the owner of Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam?
Are we living up to the Anunnaki? Are we living up to the Hadith of the Prophet? salallahu alayhi wasallam where the entire body aches in response? Are we aching in response?
Did you shed one tear? Did you make $1 for them and you woke up assata tahajjud? Did you make $1 for your brothers and sisters when you woke up?
When you looked at your children, did you think that there are children suffering their innocent children covered in dust? You seeing videos where all these aid helpers bringing out tiny children out of the buildings out of the buildings that have been carpet bombed and destroyed.
My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, we have a responsibility. We may be living far far away. And we may think, oh, we are living in this country. Everything is so peaceful. So nice. We have nothing to worry about.
We have to do things and I'm going to highlight them in Sha loudhailer in terms of what we can do. But before that we have to understand the value of these lands. In terms of Aleppo. Many of us don't know about hallum many of us don't know about Aleppo,
Aleppo, and the blesser lands of Shang have always been a repository of many, many scholars. Many scholars have visited those lands, many Sahaba rizwana Vita Allah Allah Germain have visited those lands, there's always been a seed of learning a seed of knowledge. Allahu Akbar. There have been many libraries, many institutions where Islam has shone brightly from there.
You take a man with a heavy urashima hula or take him on 100 Rama hula. He is reported to have visited Aleppo halibut. He is reported to have sought knowledge there in the Ottoman institutions there and his report we have spread the knowledge from high level there's been a beacon of knowledge hallum holep that is bleeding today and therefore that is bleeding today. halab is the Arabic name for Aleppo. It is bleeding today.
And it has a golden history to it. that many of us are not aware.
Imam bedruthan Azhar fashi
a famous scholar from Islam, is reported to have visited Halloween and sought knowledge in Halloween. Remember, Sahabi another scholar, a famous Shafi scholar from Mr. Again, is reported to have visited hello and sought knowledge from the teachers from the Messiah from the scholars in Highland Mohammed bin hydrolysed. Kalani Rahim Allah
the famous commentator of the book of Imam Al Bukhari, Rahim Allah, even Abdullah Kalani, many of us know him.
He too is from Mr. from Egypt, but he is reported to have traveled to the lands of Sham
and most specifically halab. Aleppo. He is reported to have gotten married there, lived there for some time, and sought knowledge there and spread knowledge there. Allahu Akbar and his report to have written in regard to how pleased he was with the people of Aleppo with the lands of Sham.
Famous hospitals have been established and today there's not even one hospital. All of the hospitals have been destroyed.
They used to be a hospital built by the famous and just rule a new routine.
Inky, Rahim Allah,
known as bmrs. Tan a new re. It's in the heart of dimished was established in the heart of Damascus within the lands of Sham.
What are we doing?
Do we know about our history? Do we know about the legacies? Do we know about all these golden pages that are being erased?
my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam?
It is high time that we wake up from this slumber we are intoxicated. What are nurses who Karana ob sakara. Allah says in the Quran, when he talks about the description of the day of them, it's almost as if it's like that we are all intoxicated. And that's what I said we have become numb. Now we just scroll and sometimes we feel Oh, you know what, there's so much of negativity. I don't want to look at this negativity anymore because it's disturbing my positivity. That's wrong understanding of positivity, Doom of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is suffering, and you're worried about your positivity.
The images are so graphical and so disturbing that even Facebook has censored those videos. And it tells you you are about to witness a disturbing image you are about to witness a disturbing video if you are okay with that. Go ahead. Because the images and the videos are so disturbing. So disturbing.
So even after watching those videos, don't you think that we should shed tears and cry for our brothers and sisters in those lands?
I have an action plan. I'm going to share that with you all in short, long time. Number one, we need to understand
that what's happening over there, what's happening within our lands. These are all tests from Allah subhana wa jal.
Some of us, let alone making dua for them,
let alone crying for them. We are actually becoming shaky within our own foundations. We are starting to question our own faith. We are starting to question our maker, which is the scariest thing ever. It is at this juncture that we need to become strong. And we need to understand and realize that all of what's happening is happening because Allah has decreed it to happen. And Allah knows what is best. As you can see, those lands were blessed by Allah subhana wa Jalla. And for a long while he when he was in them himself his report to have said that they will be put through trials and tribulations and they are standing strong. We on the other hand, living miles and miles
apart, we are going weak, Allahu Akbar, they are the ones those children, our children go to sleep in nice bedrooms, witnessing lovely dreams, playing computer games, going to amusement parks, watching cartoons. And at times, you're worried about the violence that is being shown on that. Why is those children there, they go to sleep, not knowing whether they'll wake up the next morning, they go to sleep, they hear the whistling of a bomb. You see when the barrel bomb drops, you can hear the sound, you can hear the sound as it comes down. And you know, if you hear that sound, it's going to drop on top of you. Just imagine we are all seated here. Now you hear the sound of a barrel
bomb. Just imagine the anxiety. Imagine the fear deep rooted in your heart. Think about those young children. Think about the mothers, our sisters, our mothers, as they are breastfeeding their young children, can they do it in peace? Can they do it in peace?
Think about a time when they are carrying bodies people have passed away they are carrying their bodies and bombs fall upon the living and the dead once again.
The scholars should not be quiet about this, we should not be quiet about this we should talk about it. We should keep instilling the worry in our hearts. We should keep making the alpha them and we should know that this is all from Allah.
We know Allah is the Most Merciful there are some who say, why is the God of mercy and if he's so merciful, why is he letting all of this happen? Allah knows what is best.
And we should never ever lose faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala they haven't lost faith in Allah, how come we are losing faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala we should know that these are all tests from Allah subhana wa Tada. That's number one.
do whatever possible to help them.
Now you know that they have been evacuated from the left for a long while and Allah knows best what's going to happen. But now it's freezing winter. It's freezing winter. They have been taken out of Aleppo to other cities, cities again that have been torn because of the war. It's not like you know, they have lovely camps and whatnot to take shelter. They've been evacuated and now they need help you
can do your own research, I'm not going to be giving you everything on this particular platform, you're supposed to do your own research, going to the internet or reach out, you know, through your networks and reach out to legitimate organizations that are perhaps helping them out. And maybe if you can't do anything, at least help them out with your money, help them with aid, they need food, they need clothing, they need money, and we have it, let's do something, you may be a person earning just 20 30,000 a month, it doesn't matter. At least help them out with 5000 rupees 10,000 rupees that's going to help someone if we all get together like one body just as in the province Alliance,
and we'll be able to help them and we're doing something in terms of the responsibility towards them. That's number one.
Help them financially help them through a help them by creating an awareness maybe on social media, you're sharing all kinds of things, share this because people are quiet about this. We should create an awareness stand up in solid solidarity with them.
Next in line is to make the offer that
we make do it for them.
Sometimes we undermine the law, we undermine the good that we can do never ever undermine any form of goodness make do our keep making the law is such a powerful weapon. We have lost this touch with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Do I is a conversation between you and Allah azza wa jal, you're crying out with that worry and brings in the worry in your heart as you make dua for them. When you see your children you make dua for those children. When you see your family you make dua for those families. When you are eating good food you make the other day be blessed as well as them that Allah alleviates their suffering. We make dua for them.
And finally, we place our trust in Allah Subhana Medina.
So what goes on where you place your trust in Allah azza wa jal and think good thoughts about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
As soon as Allah Islam reporter said that Allah is the virgin states, and are in the one near Abu Dhabi. I am as how my slave thinks of me. Today, many of us we think bad thoughts about Allah Subhana hordes and this is a time when the world is looking at us. And we need to prove to them that even though we may be going through so many trials and tribulations, our faith in Allah has not changed. Our faith in our religion has not changed. We are strong in our belief in Allah and in Islam, we need to prove it to them. We may be going through trials locally, internationally, but our faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala will not shake. And this was the faith that the Sahaba had. They do
went through so many trials, tribulations and they were persecuted but they never ever wavered. They stood firmly and the help of Allah was with them. Allah, Allah international law, Hickory, indeed the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala is near. And victory is for the Muslims. We have to have faith in Allah Subhana horns. This the work pool has to be strong at this juncture.
And the work will we have to have a complete understanding of the work well, it's not like you don't do anything and say, You know what, I placed my trust in Allah, all these things were predicted. So you know what, I can't really do anything about it. It's just best that we keep quiet and not talk about it, you know, let it happen the way it's happening, because it has been predicted by the prophets of Allah while evaluation was predicted. Yes, but your responsibility What have you done on the day of karma, if you are asked you enjoy the good life, you had a really good time was on the other side of the world. And it's not like you were oblivious to it. Each time you take out your
mobile phone, you scroll, you're seeing this news outlet covering it, that news outlet covering it, people sharing it, nonprofit organizations that are working in the ground, sharing clips, sharing live feeds of what's happening there. So you cannot ever say that you were oblivious to it. You know what's happening, and you will be questioned by law if you don't fulfill your responsibility.
So my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, let us try to do our level best in terms of being true ambassadors of Islam, true ambassadors of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and true methods of the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam let us all ache in response to what's happening in Syria, to the oppression that's happening in Syria in the lens of Sham to the oppression that is happening in Aleppo, in Hallam. It does all stand up. It has ache in response, it does help them out as much as possible, and it does make as much as possible. So the loss of Hannah Montana alleviate the suffering of our brethren our brothers and sisters in Syria in the lines of
Sham in the lines of Aleppo, may Allah Subhana Allah ease their affairs, may Allah subhanho wa Taala open the dose of goodness for all of them. May Allah azza wa jal accept the martyrs the ones who have passed away
Many granted the highest ranks in Paradise mean ease their suffering many grant them ease many grant ease to the Muslims all around the world and all those who are suffering. May He helped the Muslims May he protect Islam and the followers of Islam, the Muslims. May Allah azzawajal instill strong Eman in our hearts, strong tawakkol in our hearts that we don't waver so that we don't question the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that we don't question our faith. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us steadfast, and may He Guide us to the straight path May He grant us the best in this world as well as the hereafter. I mean, work with Allah in Hungary little bit. I mean
