You know, many of us are really are really feeling hurt. Because, you know, we have people in this dunya, who have really openly declared their immunity and their hatred for Islam and Muslims. And we see that happening. But then what is sad is when you have people who claim or people who are so called Muslims, they are honoring these kinds of people, appreciating these kinds of people, and giving them awards, knowing very well what's happening to our Muslim brothers and sisters, and this is very hurt very hurting is very painful to all of us. Because you understand, as we all understand that one is a person who claims their hatred for Islam and Muslims, we understand their position.

00:00:44 --> 00:01:26

But then you have a person who says, let you in Allah, and then they're honoring the person who's taking the life of the person who says La ilaha illAllah. And as this situation we are going through right now, many of us are asking, What can we do in this kind of situation? What are we supposed to do this kind of situation? We see one situation after another, and what are we supposed to do and how are we supposed to react? First of all, is that my brothers and sisters, I want to remind myself and all of us here, when ALLAH SubhanA what the other the very first word that he revealed, was if at all read, read the Quran, ponder over the Quran reflect upon the Quran. Why? Because there are

00:01:26 --> 00:02:08

stories in the Quran that will bring you and I constellation in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Kitab when unzila who elaida This is a book that has been revealed to you, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and revealed to the entire Muslim Ummah. Why? First of all, Allah says MOBA rock is a book that is filled with Baraka, a provides blessings in your life. And then he says, Why does it provide blessings Leah W. T, so you can reflect upon the ayat of the Quran. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through trials and challenges in his life. We talked about going through challenges. Let's reflect on the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:02:08 --> 00:02:50

sallam, when the Prophet would go through these kinds of situations, and these scenarios where he was betrayed by people in his family, he was betrayed by his own city people, the people who called him a surgical must do a surgical Amin because the Prophet saw some begin to give Dawa La ilaha illallah these are the same people who now call this man a Kahin. These are the same people who call this man a salad. This is the same people who now call this man a chi them just because he said he said Allah, Allah and the Prophet saw some knows the situation. And yet what did Allah subhanho wa Taala say to the Prophet SAW Salem luck or they can also see him able to

00:02:51 --> 00:03:33

go back to the Quran, brothers and sisters, all this day is taking place in this dunya at the end of the day, we go back to our Quran, we go back to the stories of the Quran, and one after another story after story revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam so that it brings him peace so that it can bring him comfort so that one day it can bring us comfort, it can bring us peace, Allah subhanho wa taala. He talked about all the stories of the past. He talked about what the people of the past went, Mmm hmm. Similar to him under the hood. Jana, what? tikka masala Vina Holloman cobbly Calm. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Do you think that you can enter into Jana and you will not go

00:03:33 --> 00:03:42

through what the people of the past they went through? Mr. Tumble buzzer will burrow was zero hotter your cooler Rasul. Well, ladies,

00:03:43 --> 00:04:23

there were so much trials that even the Prophet even the people with the Prophet, they said in my time nostril Allah, where is the help of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah says Allah in earnest Salahuddin when we see what's happening, these people who are honoring the other people, people who are honoring the volley moon, what does the Quran say about this? Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks about the people in the Quran, the munafo in the Quran, he talks about that what they would say and when they will cause corruption when he was said to them lack of pseudo fill out, do not spread corruption and earth. What did they say in nama anonymously horn we are not causing corruption earth

00:04:23 --> 00:04:59

we're spreading peace on earth. Allah says Allah in the home hormone mercy doing our Killa Sharon, these are the people indeed that they are spreading corruption on earth. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that how the munaf people at a time when the Prophet SAW Selim there with the Prophet, they show they say we believe in you yeah rasool Allah yet behind us wa salam, they are causing another agenda against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, brothers and sisters. Why not go back and read the Quran, study the Quran reflect upon the Quran when you and I when we don't reflect upon the Quran than this

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

Only mere words there's only stories but this is why we reflect. Then secondly, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Lakota cannula

00:05:10 --> 00:05:49

Nakata cannula, comfy rasool Allah He was swatting hacer una for you in the life of the prophet Sallallahu ala you are sending them is the amazing example an example that has never been given to us before. Go back to the life of the prophet saw Selim. Study the life of the prophet of Salem and wallah, he we will find out we will learn that what you and I were we are going through today, the pain that you and I are going through today. And many of us we all deal with pain in different ways. Allah knows our pain. Allah knows our pain. When Jacoba Alayhis Salam said in a school bus he was in Allah, the sons they came to their own father and they said, How long are you going to keep on

00:05:49 --> 00:06:29

crying about use of it some? It's a long gone deal, forget about him. He says a school but see what was it Allah, I will make my complaint to Allah subhanho wa Taala I will complain to him of my sorrow in my grief to Allah subhanho wa Taala and I and Allah knows what you do not know mean that what how much pain I'm going through and what we are going through today as the OMA only Allah knows, but Allah subhanho wa Taala What do you do? He prayed to Allah subhanho wa Taala what would the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam do when he was betrayed when he was when he was? When he was? When he was disrespected? When people would go against him and create plans against him? He would

00:06:29 --> 00:07:10

turn to Allah subhanho wa taala. Today in the OMA how many of us are we turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala how many of us this how many for how many of us these situations, these circumstances are bringing us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala These are times when we need to come closer to Allah not run away from Allah but rather come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala only then it is going to be a mercy for you and I the third thing that you and I we all need to do. We need to do this day and night. And we need to stress upon this within our families. An abundance of is still far an abundance of Stefan, remember the story of units Allah is something I've done. I've said this so

00:07:10 --> 00:07:52

many times. This is the idea of the Quran. This is not from me, this is from Allah subhanho wa taala. When Allah says, He that he you decided your son, he made dua in the belly of the world. Allah says festa Jumbunna Allah who want to Jada whom Johann, we saved him. But likewise when the Muslims when they repent to Allah, Waka Lika non GMO meaning we will save the believers also, in this day and age we need to truly repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala for our sins. It's not about how many Muslims are on earth, how many of us are praying five times a day? How many of us are really committed to our deen? What is the level of religiosity in our life? That is what we need to look

00:07:52 --> 00:08:31

at. When the Prophet said Allah What are your some he would say, according to one rewire and Buhari when he was a Muslim, that when he was sometimes make it stiffer, 100 times a day, or 70 times a day, and by the way, amongst the auto sometimes you will use these numbers not to be precisely 100 You know, one more than 99 One less than 101. But this was a a form of phrase, a way to say that the power of someone who will make an abundance of abundance is still far like today, you and I when we want to use the word abundance, we say million and trillion and so forth, that time they would use the word 70 and 100 so in our time how many times do we need to make it's different every single day

00:08:31 --> 00:08:50

La Ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah in economy of volume in a stuff that Allah humming stuff that Hola Hola, de la ilaha illa will have a Yuma to be late. There is so many two hours of is too far. So first thing was going back to the Quran. Number two is going back to the seed of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam number three is this too far? And number four,

00:08:52 --> 00:08:59

we will always always remember that the one who protects us is Who is Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

I levy in a call Allah humaneness in a nurse akkada Gemma Allah come people have gathered Phox showhome facade to whom Imana they want to put fear in the hearts of the others facade Imana instead of putting fear in the hearts of the Muslims, they're emaan increased and what did they say husband Allah who went out man were killed. Allah is sufficient for us. Wallahi we don't need anyone else. As long as we have a law on our side. That's all that we need. That's all that we need. And he is the greatest protector that we and I unite we can have when there are multiple key what a protector he is. So this is why we need to keep on asking ALLAH SubhanA what to Allah and in sha Allah Asuma

00:09:39 --> 00:09:59

Insha Allah, these people will Allah He they only have a few days. They only have a few days Allah has given them a chance either repent to Allah come back to Allah be righteous, otherwise when the when the chat when the chances are finished from Allah subhanho wa Taala and the deal is done by Allah subhanho wa Taala and the time comes ALLAH SubhanA wa

00:10:00 --> 00:10:35

Allah says no one is going to escape the wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever people are doing, remember they're not going to get away with it. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows, Allah knows more than what you and I we know and what WhatsApp knows, Allah knows more and Allah subhanho wa Taala he will hold everyone accountable for their actions. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that in times like these, may Allah increase our iman May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us steadfast upon the deen and may Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us steadfast upon the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and may Allah give us ability to teach our family members

00:10:35 --> 00:10:45
