Once again we always go back to the seed of the Prophet alayhi salam, we always go back to the Quran of Allah subhanho wa Taala to help find some peace, some, some hope, some consolation. Once again, in our deen, there is no concept of hopelessness. Inshallah, next week we'll go through I have something in mind for next week in sha Allah that there are the word Panetta yaku to like Allah subhanho wa Taala says La takana to me Rahmatullah. This means that to become completely hopeless in Allah subhanho wa taala. There are six places in the Quran, Allah talks about hopelessness Inshallah, we'll talk about this next week. But today inshallah I want to talk about something from

00:00:41--> 00:01:19

the seed of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, that when we reflect on the whole of Uzza situation, we find ourselves and in a similar situation, just like Rasulullah sallallahu, it was said, and we can see in his seat on, so we're talking about in the muck and life, often we talk about the Madani life of the prophet saw Salem, but let's go into the makin life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And there were three long years, three very, very difficult years, which was considered as the boycott here. These were the three years where the Muslims were economically, financially socially boycotted from everyone else. And there was a an agreement that

00:01:19--> 00:02:02

was written and hung on the door of the Kaaba, that going for the next three years, we're going to, you know, separate ourselves from the entire Muslim community. And I want you to understand that at that time, Muslims were very few a number. This was already a time where some of the Muslims had already gone to Abyssinia and so forth. So whatever remaining Muslims you have, compared to the rest, once again, the Muslims, they are considered as a minority, there is no military power in Makkah military power happened in Medina. So here, the Muslims, all that they can do, all that they can do is they can only put their trust and hope in their trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. And any

00:02:02--> 00:02:43

other person at that time who is considered as a non Muslim, there were some non Muslims who did stood who did stand up for us wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the point is that when you look at our current situation, just like Muslims, they weren't, they were fewer in number compared to the rest. Today we find ourselves compared to the rest very less in number. Even though today Wallah, he is sad to say this, but even though Muslims may account for almost a billion people on the faces Earth, the reality is that we don't act like a billion, our strength is not like a billion, that's the reality. But we find once again, going back to the pseudo Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and

00:02:43--> 00:03:25

just like he so while while he was setting them, there were certain individuals in his life, such as a man named Walter embody a man who stood up for the Muslims, a man who said that I'm going to stand here, and I'm going to support them, because what what is being done to them simply on the basis of religion is not right. Today, we find a similar situation that there are many people who are not Muslims. They are either Christian, they're either Jewish, they're not Zionist, they're just simple Jewish people. And not only that, but even people who might not even believe in any god. These are people who are taking the streets. These are people who are saying, we stand with our Palestinian

00:03:25--> 00:04:04

brothers and sisters, and they are the ones who are speaking up. And though everyone else who's on the opposite side, there are saying that they are supporting a certain militant group and so forth. It makes sense. Once again, everything is very clear. This has nothing to do with any militant group. This has to do with humanity. This has to do that when you see children, when you see babies just last night, just yesterday, they bombed a hospital, they bombed an ambulance. Why? Because there were so they were saying that there were certain people in the ambulance when you see children and their corpses sitting there, and they're bleeding to death and so forth. Wallahi the heart cries

00:04:04--> 00:04:46

the entire world, though they say that there are certain people that the world is against them, and the world is against the Palestinians. The reality is that the entire world the government's may be against a Palestinian, but the overall majority of people on the side of the Palestinians, one ran and the time the problems I said I'm with them be the ID. He stood up for us wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam, and not only that, but after. Now let's fast forward a few more years. And you find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a situation where he feels now defenseless. Why? Because Khadija passed away. Why because he passed away. These were the two defenses for us. allah

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was providing some will go outside a booth Allah was there to protect us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the property is someone come home, and he needs some psychological consolation. He needs someone to

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

Someone to be in his side who was on his side who was in his corner. It was none other than Khadija Radi Allahu taala. So Hadiya was his internal support of Bhutan. It was his external support. Now think about this. Allah subhanho wa taala. He took away both supports. Now did the Prophet SAW Selim ever once think the way many times we may think that I am the Rasul Allah, I need the support. Why is Allah taking my wife away? Why is Allah taking my uncle away? Roswaal some never, ever even thought in that direction. He never even thought anything like this. But he realizes that this is the opposite of Allah subhanho wa Taala Khadija has is gone, a booty call him is gone, my defenses

00:05:46--> 00:06:06

are gone, is as if anyone can now take a shot Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it is as if the machico in the Quraysh. Now they can do anything to the Prophet SAW Selim. And no one is going to be there to question their actions. Just like today we see that they can, the Israel can go and

00:06:07--> 00:06:49

they can break every single international law, but there is no repercussions. They can break every single international law, but there are no consequences. When Russia does it, there are consequences when they do it. There are no consequences. So we see the same thing, a similar situation in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and not only that, but after that was LaSalle was undecided. Let me go to thaw if let me try to go find some political support over there. When he was rejected. From there, he came back to Makkah, he called obika or the Allahu aina. He said, I need some diplomatic immunity inside Mecca, I cannot be in Makkah anymore, because now they have a free

00:06:49--> 00:07:32

reign, they have a free hand to do whatever they want to me. At that time. Once again, Moto M Bidadi. He stood up and he says I will provide protection to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you were considered as a foreigner, and you did not have a strong position in the society, you had to be under someone else's political protection. So the Prophet alayhi salam, at that time, was looking for political protection. At that time, once again, Malta in Vienna, Id a non Muslim man, he came to the aid of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was selling him and he supported us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now fast forward many years later, and we come now to the Battle of Buddha. And at

00:07:32--> 00:08:18

that time was Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, he has a prisoners. The Battle of Buddha has already taken place. Now you have the prisoners multiminer ID is already gone by them. He's already passed away. But the point is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did he do at that time? He said, If not, or if it was here today. And he would vouch and he would try to he will try to convince me to let them go. And he would speak on their behalf for motor inverter ID I would have let them go. I would let these people go. And what the property is somebody's doing brother and sisters is he's recognizing he's appreciating military ID though he's anonymous him he's appreciating him for his

00:08:18--> 00:08:56

efforts. He's appreciating him that when we needed him, he was there for us as Muslims. So what we learned from this from all this I've mentioned and I'm gonna finish on this Inshallah, there are several things that we learn, just like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in a corner defenseless. We find today our brothers and sisters in the corner, our brothers, sisters of Hunza, in a corner defenseless, there's nothing that none there's nothing there to support them, except for Allah subhanho wa taala, just like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt that the entire world now can do whatever they want to me. Everyone can do whatever they want to me, just like that today,

00:08:56--> 00:09:36

we find ourselves in a similar situation. The world can do whatever they want, they can break all international laws, and all the they can be war criminals and so forth. But there is no repercussions. There are no consequences. And likewise, the Prophet sallallahu ala he was somebody who's going out looking for support like this, the Muslims Subhanallah Muslims are trying to go out and find support. Forget about people who don't believe in Islam, but even our own Muslim political leaders will lie May Allah give them the ability to understand and what I hate to say this, but this is exactly what textbook not will not fit is. This is what a textbook is internally. You are not on

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

the outside you show you are Muslim, internally, you don't you don't support the Muslims. This is what our political Muslim leaders are doing. But then more than this, it is important for us that when we see a non Muslim, a non Muslim supporting our policy and brothers and sisters, when we find people who are who are influential people in society in media, people who are tick tock

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

as people who are YouTubers and so forth, when they come forward and they support Palestinians, they know very well now, the smoke has been uplifted now people are starting to see the truth that if you stand up and you speak for the Palestinians, your career career could be in jeopardy, your influence could be in jeopardy and so forth. But yet there are people who are saying, I will speak up for the Palestinians and what is our job as Muslims because we learned that from us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that we need to appreciate them for their for their speaking up for us will lie today. We don't appreciate them. Yes, we're very quick. We're very quick and sharing things. If you want

00:10:40--> 00:11:25

sitting on Twitter, you just retweet it, you're sitting on WhatsApp, you forward it you sitting on Facebook, you share it again. We are pushing information forward. But just like us, Allah Allah while he was setting them is recognizing he is acknowledging he understands the efforts of motorman ID, he remembers Moto and been ID that when we needed him, he was a non Muslim, but he was there for us. Likewise, when we find people like this, it does not take a lot of time, if you send them a private message. Thank you so much. Yesterday, I was sitting on social media, and there was a lady I saw a video of hers. She was saying that when I made she made a video in support of our Palestinian

00:11:25--> 00:12:10

brothers and sisters. And she said that when I made this video, there are so many 1000s of people who sent me private messages thanking me for my for my support will lie to these people, even though they may have 1000s, hundreds and 1000s of followers and so forth. But when the Center for our brothers and sisters in Gaza, and though there'll be other people who will say, you know, they will, they will forward their message. They always appreciate private messages. I'm telling you, honestly, they appreciate private messages. You send them a DM, you send them a PM, whatever you do, you send them a message, a direct message, a private message, and you say thank you so much that in times

00:12:10--> 00:12:47

like these were people's careers are in jeopardy, and your career could be in jeopardy, and your influence can be in jeopardy and so forth. And you could lose 1000s and 1000s of followers and so forth. But thank you so much for standing up for our brothers and sisters. We need to do this because Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam did the same exact thing. So in this, this situation that we are in, first of all, just like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never had any military power, but he put his trust in Allah He always made dua to Allah subhanaw taala. In a situation like this, we can do those kinds of things. There are ways that you know once again, make

00:12:47--> 00:13:27

dua push the world forward, have our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala Do not ever lose hope and Allah subhanho wa Taala thank the people who are standing up for us those who are not Muslims and they are supporting, send them a message telling them you know, you appreciate them for for standing up on the side of the truth. And not only that, but you know, always we have to understand and be smart about our money and where we spend our money and so forth. So inshallah we keep on doing these kinds of things. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring the truth to the front will general Huck was a humble battle in sha Allah the Huck will come in the Huck will remain in sha Allah, I ask Allah

00:13:27--> 00:13:54

subhana wa Taala to give us strength, may Allah subhanaw taala protect and be on the side of our brothers and sisters and Elissa and we ask Allah to behind the without that every single person man and woman Muslim or non Muslim who stands on the site of the Hawk May Allah subhana wa Taala protect them. May Allah protect them may Allah subhanaw taala aid them may Allah subhanho wa Taala give them the best in this dunya the Accra I'm a little bit I mean what is that Kamala said I'm wanting to live with the cattle
