00:02:49--> 00:02:55

Brothers and sisters, let me begin on this blessed day of this blessed hour of Yeoman Juma

00:02:56--> 00:03:06

and we first and foremost ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to lift this pandemic from us, Allah azza wa jal keep us safe and healthy Allah I mean,

00:03:08--> 00:03:24

I ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive us of our shortcomings and our mistakes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala count us from amongst the righteous in this world and in the Hereafter, Allah I mean, as you have just heard,

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

January 20 Nights

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

is an opportunity for all of us as believers

00:03:33--> 00:03:40

to look back and think of what life is like in this day and age, especially when you are a Muslim.

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

You notice that I'm wearing a green patch.

00:03:45--> 00:03:49

This patch represents the color of the carpet.

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

Those individuals who are praying in the masjid and they were killed.

00:03:55--> 00:03:58

The color of this patch also represents hope,

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

luscious greenery, a fresh start.

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

It represents happiness. And those are the things that all of us need.

00:04:10--> 00:04:19

When we think not only about the incident that happen in Quebec, but then we move forward and think about the incident in New Zealand.

00:04:20--> 00:04:24

Then the man who was murdered in front of a messenger here in Toronto,

00:04:25--> 00:04:41

then just recently, those who were killed in London, Ontario, and unfortunately, the list continues. May Allah subhanho wa Taala count all of those who have passed away from amongst his shahada, Allah who may mean

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

for Allah subhanho wa taala. He tells us in the Quran in surah that earlier Imran Latta bene Latino co T roofie Sabina la um what don't you ever for a moment think or believe that the people who are killed in the path of Allah that they're actually dead

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

Bella here owner Endora became Eurozone but rather they are with Allah. And the addresses are Endora be him, they're close to Allah. And number two, Allah is providing for them in a way that is most befitting to him subhanho wa Taala and it doesn't stop there. You and I,

00:05:24--> 00:05:34

the community, fellow brothers and sisters to these victims, their families and their friends, Allah doesn't forget about them either.

00:05:35--> 00:05:40

Because Allah Subhana Allah Tala in the same sort of gives reassurance.

00:05:41--> 00:05:54

reassurance to you and I who are still here and a light thinking and probably still mourning the loss and the this tragic event, Allah tells us Fetta Hina Bhima Tahoma la hoomin fugly?

00:05:55--> 00:06:02

Don't you worry those who are with Allah, they are happy with Allah.

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

They are pleased with Allah. And I've said this before.

00:06:10--> 00:06:23

Someone may take the life of an innocent person in this world, not realizing that they're creating their happiness and joy and peace in the Sahara.

00:06:25--> 00:06:57

And Allah tells us as for you and us, why establish your own ability in LM el hecho. B him in helping him Allah homophone it him, Allah whom he has known. You and I, Allah says, This is good news, don't you be concern, meaning don't over exhaust yourself and worry too much. Don't be afraid of your identity. Because a lot of us when incidents like this happen, it's only natural, a lot of us feel afraid.

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

You will walk out into the grocery stores and on the streets, and you'll get the look.

00:07:04--> 00:07:27

Especially our sisters who are most visible with their Muslim identity, they'll get the look, they'll get the stairs, they will be treated differently, and it's uncomfortable, very disturbing. And it could be emotional, emotionally harmful for us. It could be scars that we have to live with for the rest of our lives. So the question here is,

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

what do you do?

00:07:31--> 00:07:50

How do you cope with all of this? There's a couple things I want to share. Number one, Islamophobia didn't start in this day and age. But you if you go back in history, in the Mackin phase of our Prophet, it is Salatu was them. That's when Islamophobia officially began.

00:07:51--> 00:08:23

For 13 plus years, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam as soon as it was known who he was, and what his message is. Resistance came from all across the city of Medina, including the government of Medina, the Chieftains, the leaders of the porridge, the most powerful individuals of Mecca, created these massive campaigns against the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and his followers. He was constantly persecuted.

00:08:24--> 00:08:30

He was constantly sought after. But our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

never stopped his message.

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

He never gave up.

00:08:38--> 00:09:03

And so if you're thinking about how does this all go away? I don't have an answer to that. I don't know if it ever will. That is within the control of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. What I do know is this. As long as we are here and we are alive, Allah tells us letter Mouton. Illa unto Muslim and don't you dare leave this world unless you are Muslim.

00:09:05--> 00:09:18

In another area, Allah says, the one thing you should never ever do when you're confronting any form of hate or Islamophobia. Here's the one thing you should never do.

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

Never give up your identity.

00:09:22--> 00:09:46

Don't give up on this message. Allah promised He will protect you. That's his promise. subhanho wa taala. How Allah chooses to do that. We don't know. We trust him. All of us we trust Him. That is why you are still here today. That is why you still come to places like this today. There's trust in Tahlequah in you.

00:09:47--> 00:09:52

However, in addition to that, with that foundation in mind,

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

here is the next thing to keep in mind as we continue to grow up

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

and make sense of not only what has happened in the past, but only Allah knows what is to come. And whatever that is, may Allah make it easy for us and give us strength. May Allah keep our Eman, steadfast and strong our sincerity towards him. Allah whom I mean, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam

00:10:21--> 00:10:54

would engage with the leadership of Mecca. One of the most famous incidents you all know, is the one time he was talking to the chieftains of the porch. So it's a rare opportunity. You're talking about the highest officials of Mecca. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam has an opportunity to talk with them to present his message to talk to them about La ilaha illallah to talk about who he who he is, and what the what the message is that he proclaims. It was a rare but a golden opportunity for him.

00:10:56--> 00:11:21

And at the same time, he's interrupted by the sahabi, Abdullah, even Omar tumoral, the loved one, my point here is this nother thing that you and I could do is you call your local MP, and you talk to them and encourage them to speak up speak out against this form of hatred and discrimination. But I know what some of us might be thinking,

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

all these politicians, they're all the same.

00:11:25--> 00:11:35

It's not going to get us anywhere. This green patch, what difference does it make? Some people think this way? Well, let me tell you, brothers and sisters,

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

this symbol is very visible.

00:11:41--> 00:11:54

And that's what you want. You want others around you to see and recognize that symbol, and to attach it to this tragic date, so it's never forgotten.

00:11:55--> 00:12:20

And number two, remember, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam in gauged with the politicians of Mecca, he still took Baby steps, but he'd still continue to move forward. So what might seem as something useless or trivial now is a step forward in sha Allah Huhtala.

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

to living a better, more peaceful life as a believer and as a Muslim. It's not easy.

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

Once there was a time

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

a man came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:37--> 00:12:42

And he told the Prophet alayhi salatu salam ala Rasulillah in the ASHA book,

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

Messenger of Allah, I love you.

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

That's what this young man said, I love you.

00:12:51--> 00:13:02

The sinner is when you tell somebody you love them for the sake of Allah. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam would more often respond for a hab back Allah who led the attorney fee

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

that I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to love you.

00:13:08--> 00:13:12

The way you love me. It's such a beautiful response.

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

But in this hadith, that's not what he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded with.

00:13:20--> 00:13:23

This is the third and last point that I leave you with,

00:13:24--> 00:13:37

as we commemorate and we remember, and we think about those tragic events. Keep this in mind. The prophet Ali Salatu was Salam tells this young man

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

on the remoter pool.

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

Watch what you're saying.

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

It's a really interesting statement. Watch what you're saying. Why did he sallallahu alayhi wasallam say that?

00:13:52--> 00:13:57

Because if you say you love him, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:13:59--> 00:14:03

then that love is accompanied with great hardship and trial.

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

On votre Mata cool, watch what you're saying,

00:14:09--> 00:14:38

to follow in his footsteps. SallAllahu it was set up it's not easy. It never was. Nobody was in cruise control behind it. Every single follower has a story or an experience. As a matter of fact, do you notice that the biography of all the Prophets and Messengers we know is a list of hardships, pain and struggle? Every one of them went through the exact same thing?

00:14:40--> 00:14:54

So it's not any different for you and I? And don't take this as a way I'm saying to you, we need to just smile when these things happen. These tragic things happen just smile and continue with life. No.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

But those baby steps that we take to try and change

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

The atmosphere, the impression, the rhetoric that's constantly against you and I, to do our part and try to change that. We carry our identity, and we carry it proudly, but we carry it with wisdom and knowledge, and we prepare ourselves for the hardship that is to come. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala give us strength.

00:15:26--> 00:15:32

You see, we are here today because Allah sees in all of us that we have what it takes to carry this message.

00:15:33--> 00:15:54

Otherwise we wouldn't be here. So I pray Allah preserves the message of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our hearts and in our lives. Akula mantus Marone What staford Allah who you welcome Marissa Aly Muslimeen I'm incredibly them. The stuff hero inna who who will offer Orion?

00:16:03--> 00:16:12

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Allah He of total Salah woman while I'm buried.

00:16:13--> 00:16:21

For this second part of the hookah today, all they want to do is just pray. I pray that Allah subhana wa Tada forgive an honor

00:16:22--> 00:16:54

all of those who have passed away feasts of ILA I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala count them from amongst the Shahada. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves them and accept them. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives them the highest level of Ghana. And us too. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us all the chance to meet these individuals in Ghana, and to be able to talk to them and engage with them and tell them when you died.

00:16:55--> 00:17:48

Your legacy didn't die. You helped me strengthen my identity. I became a better Muslim, because I learned from your death, so you didn't die in vain. I pray that Allah subhana wa Taala gives strength, patience, and perseverance to their families and to their communities. I pray that Allah azza wa jal protect all of us, not just in this community but all communities around us. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from us our efforts, bless us and continue to purify our hearts, count us from amongst those who are sincere. For our sons and daughters. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah Tada raised them and honor them as proud Muslims and believers. I pray that Allah azza wa jal

00:17:48--> 00:18:25

for our sons and daughters protect their Muslim identity continue to bestow upon them the knowledge of this deen and that they become a shining example wherever they go, whomever they encounter, and all of those who are responsible for these crimes, I leave them with Allah azza wa jal, to judge and bring them to account for what they have done in a manner that is pleasing to Him. I pray that Allah so which will protect us, keep us safe, keep us healthy. We ask Allah azza wa jal

00:18:26--> 00:19:14

to protect our sons and daughters love them, have mercy on them. And may Allah azza wa jal accept from us our righteous deeds Allahumma Amin in De La Hoya mela Ekata, who you saw Lunarlon Irby yeah you have Latina Amman or So Lou Isley are suddenly more Taslima Allahumma Salli.
