them. Number one,
we listened. Many of us were glued to YouTube this morning to listen to the International Court of Justice and their decision of provisional measures against Israel.
As you know, many groups of people in many countries will spin this decision in their own way. And it's important that we frame it in a positive manner. Because it is a positive decision, given the limitations and giving given the context of international law. I just wanted to read to you a very quick note, brief note by tyeb Ali, he is an international lawyer in the National Court of Justice, not International Court of Justice, but international justice for Palestine. And he has actually brought a case against the leaders of the United Kingdom. And this is what he had to say. He said, Israel acts are plausibly acts of genocide. This is what the International Court of Justice has
actually reached. Provisional measures have been granted to South Africa, in order to prevent irreparable harm to Palestinians. This is why we have international law, and the ICJ if any nation, if any nation continues to support Israel, in its plausible genocidal acts, they will be complicit complicit in them. And therefore, I want to urge you to continue doing what you have been doing, and that is to pressure our government to pressure our representatives to pressure our country so that they can abide by this decision of the International Court of Justice. It is not everything that we looked for, but it is a step in the right direction, and I hope Inshallah, that something can happen
that will help to cease and stop the brutal killing the indiscriminate killing of the Palestinians, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help them and may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us safety and security in this in this world. I also want to remind you that January 29, is the remembrance day for the Quebec shooting, in which six of our brothers were killed brutally, in a masjid. We will be
posting about this inshallah. And please, make your children know about this history. Because what we are fighting for is a safe future for our children in sha Allah.
Or earlier. Yesterday, we learned of the passing of one of the icons in the Muslim community. Half is a she hack. Today is his Janaza Islamic foundation of Toronto. He was a pioneer of Quran recitation. Those of you who remember his recitation touched the hearts of many of us in the early days of the Islamic foundation and prior to that he was leading a Jami mosque. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive Him His sins and his shortcomings and to grant him Jana insha. Allah. And speaking about Quran recitation, I want to announce that we have one of the most famous curries in the Arab world. We'll be coming here on Sunday evening, at the time of Salado Asia at 7pm
Kareem otter Cymbala alasa Lee will be visiting us here at IIT and we have a number of other queries, including curry Abdelfattah curry Abbas from St. Catherine and our own curry Hassan Rahman who is visiting us here and other brothers. Inshallah we will have a session for Quran recitation, and some nasheeds. We invite all of you to be here in sha Allah on Sunday evening at 7pm. And to join us the details of this will be posted on our website and social media pages. I'm going to ask our brothers and sisters to go through the lines in sha Allah, and please donate generously. Jazak Allah Azza salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Once the volunteers go through the lines,

subhanho wa Taala Phaeton xili yo Hill Latina Manu, the top Allah has applied to a party here while at thermo tuna Illa and Tomasi, Morin, Sama beret. My brothers and sisters we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for his forgiveness and His mercy Lahoma mean we ask Allah azza wa jal to ease the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters in America and wherever they may be. But especially our brothers and sisters in Palestine and in the hodza Lahoma. Amin you want to
before we begin today's shorter reminder, here at the Academy, the IIT Academy,
one of our teachers, a sister she fell it hurt herself pretty bad.
And if you know anything about the school, these teachers are some of the hardest working brothers and sisters you
will ever meet.
And so it's important that we give help where help is due.
So when we have one of our own,
who is here teaching and guiding as best as she can, our children, the help upon her from us is we at least make dua that Allah subhanho wa Taala give her Shiva May Allah azza wa jal ease her pain and bless her with complete Shiva Lahoma. Amin and for the rest of the teachers, and of course the students may Allah azza wa jal bless them and honor them and keep them strong Lahoma me Are you and
if you look at the lives of pious men and women, starting with the prophets, you'll notice that if you knew nothing about any of the prophets and messengers, if you knew nothing about them, and you were to open their story,
the thing that is immediate is that you'll start to read a lot of information that are problems, just pain and struggle. So take for example, the story of Noah Hawley his Salam, 950 years, maybe a dozen or more, ended up accepting his message and following him as a prophet 950 years, what did he have to endure the poor and captures certain points in his life, where he's embarrassed, they insult him, they ridicule him, they make fun of him publicly even.
But he has to go through all of them.
And his story is captured in the Quran. And he becomes one of the mightiest messengers of Allah.
Then you look at someone like ESEA, or the Allah on her.
This is a woman that's married to fit around, perhaps the worst that has ever walked the face of this earth. She's not part of the administration. She doesn't just work in the palace. She's married to the men who is inflicting torture and pain on others. She's married to this person. So if you look at her story, you're like, okay, that can't be anything good about ESEA here, yet.
She is counted
amongst the leaders of women in Jannah. She will be one of the leaders.
Then you look at other prophets and messengers, like Ibrahim Allah has set up his own father. Not only was the person that was most against the message of Ibrahim alayhis salam, his father threatened him says let audit your min Nick, I'm gonna have you stoned I'm gonna have you heard if you don't stop calling to your message. And in addition to that, his father is the one that started the whole industry of idol worship. He used to carve them and build them. He had to Ibrahim alayhis salam will all know how important he is to us as believers and he will also have his place in Jannah Bismillah May Allah azza wa jal count all of us from amongst them that we are reunited with these
great men when women in general will fit a dose Allahumma Amin so here's the point. Somebody asked about Palestine and the hodza you know, so much pain, so much killing. We're is Allah.
Someone asked, Where is a lot we're making the whole Ummah is making Dora, Dora Dora all of us. So Much Ado, when is the Nasir and the aid going to arrive?
Now to answer this question, you first must know a couple of things. Number one, this question is a dangerous question to ask. When it pertains to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Because we don't ask Allah when and how he should do things. subhanaw taala we are the slaves He is the master.
And if you look at all these prophets and messengers, and even great men and women, past and even here present, take yourself and me for example. Look what life is like to be Muslim in 2024.
And this is the path chosen by Allah
The path of Tawheed the path of Islam, but look at how it's portrayed. Look at how and what people say and think about Islam and Muslims. So it doesn't look attractive when you look at it from a bird's eye view.
So the answer the question is the first point we don't question Allah.
And Allah called out the people who did this.
Call them out in Sudha tell me via
la use Lor Amaya friend.
Will him use alone.
Allah talked about the true believers. They don't ask and question Allah's choice or decision. Well whom use alone. But those who disbelieve This is one of the tactics they had. And it's actually throw to the poor earn constantly the prophets, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, And subhanAllah pain from day one.
From day one,
the moment he said, I am a prophet, and I'm here to relay a message from Allah. The response, not just from the community, people closest to him, his own neighbors, people he grew up with, all turned against him.
And they challenged him. They said, Okay, if this creator is here, let him send some rain right now.
They put him on the spot. But that's not how this works.
The next point now for the question,
there is a pattern with the end of all of our prophets and messengers and pious people. Look at the ending. They all were blessed with forgiveness, Allah's mercy, and they were given Jana.
And their learners say this is the deeper lesson and wisdom. Why we go through so much.
It's not the point of life is not to live like a Muslim. And that's it stop there. We live like Muslims, because the ultimate goal is we want to die as Muslims.
And all these prophets and messengers, and these pious men and women, at the end, they left this world with La ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasulullah.
Now apply that to our brothers and sisters, especially in Palestine. It's terrible. It's hard to even think about and imagine, let alone watch those images and those videos. But you can't help as believers, you can't help but wonder. Sure they are taking away their dunya. But they have no idea that they are opening and facilitating the path of the best hero for each and every one of them.
That's why you saw videos of a father who lost 50 members of his family. And you know what he says Alhamdulillah Hussmann Allah whenever Mila kill. That's why we live so that we can go through all of that pain and still say Alhamdulillah because why?
It goes back to a verse many of us know you've heard it sounds like this from suit at full sealer in a Latina Pilu or Abu Nola through Mr. Palmer, Indeed, those who say Allah is my rub. Then what came after it through Mr. Palmer, they upheld that life they held despite whatever they went through, so Allah knows what he's doing.
And in the verse you've already heard in the beginning of today's Ultra, you hear it to every Jumeirah. La tomo twin Illa one Tomas thing, listen to the AYA.
Allah doesn't say later you shouldn't know until almost the moon Allah says Don't you dare die and leave this world except that you're Muslim. Allah doesn't restrict the idea to Don't you dare live unless you're living like a Muslim.
Because if you focus on leaving this world as a Muslim by default, how do you have to live? So you get both. Just by focusing I want to leave this world in a manner pleasing to Allah. Then our
dogmatically the way to achieve that to be the best candidate of that is you've got to live as best as you can as a Muslim.
So where is Allah?
Allah tells us, He is near.
Allah tells us
his Nasr, UN aid is also near, it's coming.
Perhaps part of it is already here. We don't know. What we do know is the OMA is awake now.
At least, this issue is on everyone's mind. Every Juma you're going to be reminded about this. And so we should.
So there is some higher that starting to unfold. Now how that manifests. That's a separate issue. Now, why do I bring all of this up? This is what we will conclude with in the second part of the whole. So the first part is, where is Allah? Let's not ask. We know Allah subhana wa Taala is always there. We know that Allah promises He will protect the believers. And we know that Allah subhanho wa taala, despite whatever it is that we endure in life tells us Don't you dare leave this world unless your Muslim metal lies so he will bless all of us with a righteous ending a ursnif Allah to an ending that is pleasing to Him. May Allah azza wa jal allow all of us that our last words will be
the words that are most beloved to him. The shahada of la ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Apolo Mantis, Martin was Sofitel La Jolla welcome Marisa Iliyan Muslim equally them for stuff it'll no longer photo Rahim.

there are times where you and I need a little bit of push.
You know how sometimes when you put all of your attention in one area, it's very normal and common that you lose sight of the goal.
And you lose sight at the end of the day. That's where I need to be. But this problem consumed my attention and my time, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It's a huge issue.
But remember, brothers and sisters, don't lose yourself.
And so in conclusion, I want to bring your attention to a set of verses in Surah TL hijra, just as encouragement for you and me recharge something here. So that when you go back out there, and you're talking about this issue, that you don't forget, if there's a problem in your marriage, you got to address the if you see your kids going astray, we've got to go and address the if you can't remember the last time you prayed fidgeter on time you got to address the so you can go with all of those thoughts and remember that those are priority as well. On the Day of Judgment.

So they get all the landscape and gardens of Jana? Where are you and springs.
When you hear that a it's very easy for somebody to say Yeah, that's amazing for the mortality. I hope I'm one of them.
Because the light is speaking in third person so it sounds like he's talking about a special group. Listen to the next area.
With the Holo hub is Salam in Armenian.
All of you enter.
Now Allah is speaking directly to all believers. Go enter.
So the one who is questioning and wondering, Am I doing things right? But at the end they trust Allah they do their best and they trust Allah less that you are on that path of a machete all along even if you didn't know now go enter with all of them.
With the Holo ha Bismillah Amin, amin with peace and security. Do you know why we're we are told to enter Jannah in sha Allah Who Tada with peace and security.
Because those are the two things that you risk in life to get there. The road to Jannah is hard.
And your peace is disrupted.
And you might put yourself in a place where it's not safe.
But Allah says now you have nothing to worry about. Just go
be at peace.
Nothing of any pain or struggle will touch you. You will never ever think of leaving Jana again. When you're there, you're there.
Then Allah talks to us that in ways that he'll purify us. When is that another few so duty humanism, he'll remove any hidden hatred or animosity from our hearts. And in conclusion, he tells us the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam now go not bury bad deed Go and tell them

Keep going and call that Allah is Allah foto Rahim don't stop. No matter how difficult how hard how painful. Don't stop that Allah subhanho wa Taala has ever forgiving and merciful.

And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to preserve the message of Islam in our hearts and in our lives. And we ask Allah azza wa jal to give victory to our brothers and sisters in Palestine and preserve and protect the
