00:04:39 --> 00:04:40


00:04:52 --> 00:04:53

Hi y'all

00:05:34 --> 00:06:04

Or no your glial fellow had yellow or shadow ilaha illallah wa the hula Sharika why should we not do who?

00:06:08 --> 00:06:21

subhanho wa Taala theta and xili you have Latina Manu it up hola her help her to party he will tune in to mostly Moon from Barend

00:06:22 --> 00:06:27

brothers and sisters let us begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:06:28 --> 00:06:55

we asked the lines that were drawn on this blessed day an hour of the opening tomorrow that he shower us with forgiveness and mercy. We further ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give strength and patience to our brothers and sisters, especially in Palestine but across the world metalized Allah gel give them strength. May Allah azza wa jal give them victory. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala ease the pain and suffering alone

00:06:56 --> 00:07:14

or your lack of verb I have to be honest with you, I don't have a whole Tibet prepared. This is one of the moments where what you hear until the end of today's Ultimate is literally from one heart to another. I want to first start off by reminding me and all of you

00:07:15 --> 00:07:24

that I understand that the eyes welled up with tears. I understand that the hearts are filled with emotion and pain.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:28

But we have to remember

00:07:29 --> 00:07:31

to say Hamdulillah

00:07:33 --> 00:07:40

we have to remember that Allah subhanahu wa Teina has a plan

00:07:42 --> 00:08:02

and that he is Eliza diesel Hakeem. He is the all powerful and the all wise. We have to remember nothing happens except by the permission of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:21

It doesn't matter how we plan. It doesn't matter what status we carry, how much access we have to wealth and resources, it doesn't matter at the end.

00:08:22 --> 00:08:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:25 --> 00:08:46

allows what he wishes what he allows. Allah subhanahu wa taala will prohibit what He desires to prohibit. Everything is in Allah Subhana Allah tireless control, we ask Allah azza wa jal for knowledge and sincerity Allahumma Amin

00:08:48 --> 00:08:54

one of the things that I think about, and I'm sure all of us we do practically every single day

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

Why is this happening?

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

How am I supposed to feel?

00:09:02 --> 00:09:05

And what do I do? Three questions.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:11

And if you haven't been thinking about this, from this day forward, start thinking about this.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:37

Why is this happening? To be quite honest with you, saying that I don't to know when Allah knows best is a very valid response. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. However, the religion and the Shediac gives us some things to think about why tragedies like this happen.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

It could be a test

00:09:42 --> 00:09:52

not just for our brothers and sisters, you've got to remember that the test could also being for me and you how

00:09:54 --> 00:09:57

Allah gave us. Security

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

gave us

00:10:00 --> 00:10:18

Peace. To the extent where we can more or less live freely, we can practice our religion, we can come to a masjid, we can do the things that we want to do on a daily basis to live like a normal human beings.

00:10:20 --> 00:10:24

But then there are people across the world that don't have that privilege.

00:10:26 --> 00:10:32

Why did Allah give that to me and you? And take it away from some?

00:10:34 --> 00:10:42

Some of them and say that the test for us is, how are you going to respond?

00:10:43 --> 00:11:02

That Allah gave you wealth and others he didn't? What are you going to do with that wealth? Allah gave you peace and security and not to others? How grateful? Will you live day after day in gratitude to Allah? Is all of your days filled with Alhamdulillah? And if it is,

00:11:04 --> 00:11:08

then it leads us to the next question, how do I feel?

00:11:09 --> 00:11:21

If you are in pain, if you are saddened, and you're grieving, and those videos and pictures, they're really difficult to look at.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

I understand.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:26

They're difficult for me to

00:11:28 --> 00:11:45

Imams don't have, like this ability or courage in them, that they can look at tragedy and still muster up the strength and faith to speak to an audience, we feel the same things you do when we watch those images.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:51

So if you do have those feelings within it's okay to have them.

00:11:53 --> 00:12:22

Well, what do you do? Do you continue feeling this brief? You take that grief, and you take that pain, and you translate it into something meaningful, to something with purpose, to something that helps you and especially those who needed the most. So if you hear the announcements, we're collecting donations, for those suffering, whether it be in Palestine or anywhere else.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:33

One way to help your emotions and keep them calm, keep them under control, is you give and you do something, you act

00:12:34 --> 00:12:42

if there's a protest, and you have the time and even if you don't you make the time. All of those moments start to bring a little bit of

00:12:44 --> 00:12:46

gratitude piece

00:12:47 --> 00:12:51

and it brings a hamdulillah it brings it out.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:56

The third question, what do you do moving forward?

00:12:58 --> 00:13:27

You are probably constantly reminded every day make dua make to make dua. Yes, we make dua, and that should never stop. We always pray and make dua that Allah subhanho wa Taala ease the suffering of our brothers and sisters Aina Mecca and wherever they may be. But in this day and age, especially in Palestine, may Allah subhanho wa Taala ease their pain and ease their suffering and give them victory Allah who mean

00:13:29 --> 00:13:37

well, what do you do moving forward? So as you heard in the prayer today, after this, we will have a short minute.

00:13:38 --> 00:13:46

We will do what the prophet dialing has salatu salam would do whenever there was war, tragedy and battles happening.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:54

He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before asking the companions for anything,

00:13:55 --> 00:14:05

before putting together a plan of how to respond. The first and foremost thing he would do SallAllahu it was salam, Dr. Rob, Rob Dr. Rob

00:14:06 --> 00:14:19

every battle during the nights, the companions are resting. The battle is in pause. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is praying throughout the night

00:14:20 --> 00:14:25

that they say this is the wisdom

00:14:26 --> 00:14:34

that all those involved if you're not seeing it, you will see it. The despite our brothers and sisters are suffering.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:45

There is actually something encouraging and positive. You know what that is? You probably seen videos and images

00:14:46 --> 00:14:59

of regardless that every building and shop and store and road and sidewalk is shattered to pieces. They still say Alhamdulillah they still say

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

in Allah, they still speak with trust and hope with Allah. Their faith isn't shackled. It hasn't weakened.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:19

If anything for most, in the midst of all of that pain, they say Alhamdulillah Allah knows best.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:23

When you look at those images,

00:15:24 --> 00:15:29

those are the moments that should encourage us and empower us.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

The last thing that I will say to you is this.

00:15:34 --> 00:15:49

These days I get, and I'm sure you do as well. People ask what's going to happen to these poor, innocent men, women and children? Do their lives just pass away and that's the end? No, my brothers and sisters, listen to this.

00:15:51 --> 00:16:03

Allah tells us close towards the end of sudo. Earlier Imran gives us a little bit of insight. What happens when somebody dies in the path of Allah

00:16:04 --> 00:16:14

doesn't matter their age? What happens to them when they pass away in the path of Allah? Listen to the verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:16:15 --> 00:16:20

Allah Subhan Allah V now Pattillo TISA Viva la he am wanting to

00:16:22 --> 00:16:25

be here in Dadaab be him Eurozone

00:16:26 --> 00:16:29

said he's gonna be mad. Mullah whom in fugly?

00:16:30 --> 00:16:36

Well, yesterday she ruined a bit of a Xena lamium, who beat him in healthy him, hopefully him well.

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

Just listening to the verse, Allah tells all of us

00:16:44 --> 00:16:50

don't you dare think don't allow yourself to even think

00:16:51 --> 00:16:58

that those were killed in the path of Allah, that they're actually dead.

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

There is a similar verse in Surah Al Baqarah.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:11

Allah told us in that Surah wala Taku li Mei Yu patello visa vie de la vie, and what

00:17:12 --> 00:17:24

ensued Et Al Baqarah. Allah tells us don't even say it, don't even verbalize the idea that those who are killed in the path of Allah are dead.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:32

So you have two things here. You have in one surah, Allah says, Don't even say the words,

00:17:33 --> 00:17:36

then you have another Surah that says, don't even think it.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

Which one is more difficult?

00:17:41 --> 00:17:45

Sometimes, or many times, we can control what we say.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:51

But it's really difficult to control what you feel.

00:17:53 --> 00:17:59

The hearts will always feel the pain and grief, but you can control how you have expressed that.

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

Now, here's the point.

00:18:03 --> 00:18:15

pseudotyped Bacara is pre battle. Before these battles take place, the companions are prepped. So Allah is already preparing them.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:17

Some of you will die.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:52

When that happens, you're not really dead. So that's pre battle. Early Imran is post battle, which is a tougher scenario to deal with. Now, all is said and done. Then Allah says, don't even think that these people that passed away, you're looking at the tragedy, you're looking at those videos. Now you've got to tell your heart and your mind. Somehow they are still alive with Allah subhanho wa taala. Obviously not in the physical sense, but in the spiritual sense.

00:18:53 --> 00:18:54

Then Allah tells us more.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:03

But yeah, it would be him Euro zone. Rather they are alive, close to their Lord.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:08

And Allah is constantly providing for them.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

Why am I sharing this with you?

00:19:12 --> 00:19:29

I hope that Insha Allah, all of us, when you hear this verse, at least somewhere in US can breathe, and you can just hit Hamdulillah. Okay. But then the martyrs and their families

00:19:30 --> 00:19:37

and their relatives and their friends and their communities, we are still alive.

00:19:39 --> 00:19:47

The families of those who died are still alive somewhere they are there. They're still that connection, what happens to them?

00:19:48 --> 00:19:51

It was said, brothers and sisters,

00:19:52 --> 00:19:59

that when the martyr dies, his soul is extracted and it is

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

placed in a beautiful green bird.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:12

This bird is allowed to roam and fly in Jannah the LMS split.

00:20:13 --> 00:20:28

Some say this is happening right now as we speak. The souls of those who died in the path of Allah at this very moment are in Jana in this bird and they're roaming around eating and drinking of the pleasures of Jana.

00:20:30 --> 00:20:36

The second opinion says that this will happen on the Day of Judgment onwards in the era.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:39

But here's the point.

00:20:41 --> 00:20:44

In a long Hadith in the student of Abbey Road,

00:20:45 --> 00:20:47

it is narrated that it was said

00:20:49 --> 00:21:15

these souls asked Allah, Oh Allah, how can we tell those who are still alive, that we're enjoying all of this pleasure? We have all of this peace. Because they only remember what they saw how tragic it was, but they can't see how happy and at peace we are. How can they know?

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

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala responds to them and says, I

00:21:23 --> 00:21:24

will inform them

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

this area was revealed

00:21:28 --> 00:21:44

this a student earlier Imran was revealed this is Allah subhanaw taala telling us Don't worry, they're okay. They're in a good place. May Allah is still the jewel reunite us with them in genitive Ferdowsi.

00:21:46 --> 00:21:49

Fetti, Hina Bhima Tahoma Allah.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:52

They're happy with what Allah gave them.

00:21:53 --> 00:21:56

They're so happy fetishy and comes to the word farmer.

00:21:57 --> 00:22:01

For his when you're so happy, you can't find the words to describe.

00:22:02 --> 00:22:03

Let's follow

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

with what Allah has given them. Well, yesterday, Sharon AbilityNet Emil Haku be him in holophane him this is for all of us now, but also for the martyrs that are still being martyred every day.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:25

Those who have passed away, they are anxiously waiting for the other martyrs to come.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:36

That did not die the same moment and time they died. There to come later. They are patiently anxiously awaiting their arrival.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:39

Do you notice something about these?

00:22:40 --> 00:22:43

It's all about the Euro.

00:22:46 --> 00:22:50

Euro you know what I learned from that? And I hope you do too.

00:22:52 --> 00:22:59

This world is exactly like the Prophet it has sloth wassalam described a dunya

00:23:00 --> 00:23:01

see Gen.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:03

Y Gen to

00:23:05 --> 00:23:09

this world is really like a prison for the believers.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:13

But it is the agenda of the disbeliever.

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

For whatever reason, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. This is not our time, our time will come.

00:23:25 --> 00:23:30

But my reminder to be in you and this is what I conclude with is very simple brothers and sisters.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:32

Hold on.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:36

Hold on to this faith.

00:23:37 --> 00:24:06

Every time you see those videos, say to Allah Alhamdulillah Allah I trust you. I trust everything that you allow that you plan. There might be some wisdom here but I can't see it. Because I'm a human being and I'm limited Oh Allah, by trust you you decide what is best. You do this vanilla who not only will our brothers and sisters have victory.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:08

So will we.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:39

We will find that victory here. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the strength, the health the knowledge and wisdom. We see the beauty of our routine. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala ease the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters in America and wherever they may be. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our door us may Allah azza wa jal accept our local mean I'll call them stuff that will literally what a commodity sir eliminates the middleman equally them first off you know who will have photo Rahim?

00:24:45 --> 00:24:54

Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah were buried. In conclusion brothers and sisters the concludes whole funeral even while homier is no

00:24:56 --> 00:24:58

this is for all of us. Don't be scared.

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00


00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

Don't be sad, hang in there.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:07

Moon sign as salam had to go confront her own

00:25:08 --> 00:25:17

shit our own has access to the entire world all its power, wealth and every resource at his disposal. What does Musa alayhis salam have?

00:25:18 --> 00:25:19


00:25:21 --> 00:25:26

and still, Allah gave Musa alayhis salam victory

00:25:27 --> 00:25:30

and caused fit around not only to fail,

00:25:31 --> 00:26:22

but the story of fit around preserved so that you and I can look back and say, in sha Allah, no matter what we have or don't have, we will be okay in sha Allah. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala preserved the message of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our hearts and in our lives. This is this is the reminder that I leave you with brothers and sisters, when you step back out there, walk out there with a proud identity with certainty and your pain that not only you are a Muslim, but you are you are a believer. And in the midst of all of this tragedy, your Eman just went up and just got reinforced 10 times more. Your Eman is stronger your Islam is
