Hola Hola Ohana he was salam. In a hadith he talks about the dua of the oppressed. And Allah Subhan and the Prophet SAW Selim says, the dua of the oppressed is answered before Allah subhanho wa taala. And there is nothing between them to iron ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. Yet today many people and understanding that they have so much their hearts are broken. There are so many people who are thinking about Palestine. There's so many people who are thinking about our brothers and sisters in Gaza. And there are so many people who have told me that they grow they go to sleep at night crying. They go to sleep at night thinking that while I'm asleep, how many more children are dying? How many

00:00:46--> 00:01:27

more adults are dying? And you find people who are justifying these this genocide, people who are funding this genocide, brother and sisters, then those same people, they will ask me the same question this question. Where is we are making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam says that there is no hijab between the dua of the oppressed and Allah subhanho wa taala. But where is the health of Allah subhanho wa taala. And I talked about this before, and I'm sure in the last three weeks you've been hearing these kinds of talks, that you cannot lose hope and Allah subhanho wa taala, you have to understand that dua is the weapon of a believer, and as long as

00:01:27--> 00:02:06

we have do on our side, and now you have people who are saying that we keep on making dua, but there's nothing coming of this dua, first of all, is I want to share with you few stories from the CETA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And I'm going to quickly run through them to help us understand that when we raise our hands before Allah, when we raise our hands and tahajjud when we raise our hands anytime of the day, and we say Ya Allah Ya Allah, and then we see that Allah subhanaw taala is not giving us exactly what we want, immediately. And that situation how can we understand and in light of the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the very first story

00:02:06--> 00:02:51

on Mr. Mr. Ravi, Allah unhide this the time of hijra, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has given a clear command. Everyone has to do Hijra to Medina, OMA Salama, with Abu Salah mama and their child, okay? They all are traveling to Medina, in the middle somewhere before they left and they were on their way. The tribes came into the middle. And because OMA Selma and Abu Salma come from two different tribes, they they the abou Solomon's tribe, took a boo Salama, took the child and the family and the tribal OMA cinema, Tacoma cinema away. Ole Miss cinema or the alotta on her, she's a Muslim and she is see she is someone who's making Hijra at the time of the hijra, when Allah Subhana Allah has

00:02:51--> 00:03:38

instructed them to go she's a believer in Allah subhanho wa taala. She believes in dua, she's a Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yet she says herself, that I was separated from my husband. I was separated from my child, not for one week, not for one month, but for one entire year. She says that every single day, I would go to the mountaintop there in that area. I will sit there and I would cry all day long. And then I would come back in the evening to stay at the house. Someone can ask right that does she make dua of course she may do ah. But then the question is, where was Allah subhanho wa taala. But that's the point of the story. You make dua to Allah subhanho

00:03:38--> 00:04:22

wa taala, your DUA goes to Allah subhanho wa taala. But sometimes it may take a little time. Then you have the story of the boycott. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he and the Sahaba were socially financially boycotted from everyone else. And that did not last one year like in the case of OMA cinema, this last three long years. Now someone can ask didn't Rasul Allah sauce and make dua, this this is the man who is the closest to Allah subhanho wa taala. Of course he made dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala but did he lose hoping Allah subhanho wa taala? The answer is no. D ever once question ALLAH SubhanA what the Allah and the Rama of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the eighth

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

and the Newser of Allah. The answer is no. This is what we learn from the CEDAW that you make dua Our job is to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala though it may take a little time, then you find the Sidra in the central province of Salem when the surah was revealed either Jaya nurse rule law he Wellford though as as many Alma and knowing that they have an ambassador the Allahu Anhu says that this was an indication from Allah subhanho wa Taala that the time of the Prophet Allah use in this dunya is coming to an end. But think about this for a moment. Did

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Dangerous wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam one days of happiness? Of course, didn't Ross was a southern one days of peace. Of course, do you think do we think that him constantly being in a conflict with the Quran over and over again till the time of atomica this is something that the property is some enjoyed Absolutely not. But the property Some may do, I may do I may do ah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is bringing this relief when not at the beginning of his life towards the end of his life. It is as if when you say the life of the prophet it is salaam we learn that there probably is some spend many years of struggle and only few months of relief. This is a reality of Rasulullah

00:05:43--> 00:06:22

sallallahu Ani, he was setting them then at the same time, you know, the stories, like for example, in the Hadith, the Prophet SAW Salem, when the property is on went for Issawi Mirage, he heard a smell a fragrance and Jibreel you some informs him that this is from the hairdresser, the daughter of her own, but even in that case, in that story, when this woman was brought, and her children were killed right before her, just like today, we see that so many parents are holding on to their children, so many mothers and fathers, they're crying and they're holding on to their dead children. And they cannot separate themselves from their children because of the love that they have in their

00:06:22--> 00:07:04

heart. This woman had to see something the same exact thing, her children being killed right in front of her. And she could have said the same thing. I made dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala where is the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala when everyone in this palace disbelieves in Allah, I believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala where is the help of Allah subhanho wa taala. But brothers and sisters, this is where we have to sometimes take a step back and look at the bigger picture. You and I and the entire Muslim world. We're trying to make a change in our life. We're trying to wake up for tahajjud we're trying to cut out the Haram things in our life.

00:07:05--> 00:07:49

We're trying to become more spiritual in our life. And yes, we all are making dua for the destruction of the oppressors for the for the destruction of the occupiers. We all are making those kinds of dramas. But at the same time, look at the situation brother and sisters, that where are we today? Where we were three weeks ago and where we are today. This today what we see there are so many Muslims, but along with Muslims, there are non Muslims, during even Christians, there are even Jewish people who are taking the streets with other Muslims who are going on these protests they are showing their support to they are standing alongside the Muslims. Is this not from the health of

00:07:49--> 00:08:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala indeed, this is the result of our do us today we are seeing Wallahi I'm I'm in my early 40s Never in my life, have I seen that people are not waking up. And now people are starting to see the the occupation that Israel has committed against the Palestinians will lie. I've never seen that in my life. People have been sleeping for so many years, they had no idea what occupation is, they have no idea that this is something that is going on. And now they're finally waking up. This is a result of our Dewas this is the result of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala people are now waking up Americans are now waking up and starting to

00:08:34--> 00:09:18

realize that we do I have enough money to take care of our college debt. We do have enough money to take care of the homelessness in our society, we have enough money to take care and provide health care and medicine to everyone. As they say universal health care, they have enough money, the United States has enough money now people are waking up that we have been sending so many billions of dollars to foreign entities. Now Americans are waking up brothers and sisters, now people are starting to see the reality. Now people are starting to see that freedom of speech that America and all these first world nations they claim to boast about it is completely garbage. There is no true

00:09:18--> 00:10:00

freedom of speech, if there was freedom of speech, then people will not be fired for showing their support for palace for Palestine. But we see now people are starting to wake up and say there yes there is true no true freedom of speech. Now people are starting to say that is this what democracy is now people are starting to see the flaws of democracy. And now people are starting to pick up the Quran. There are so many influences, social media influencers who are now picking up the Quran. So many people are saying I had no idea what Islam was till this situation started and now I'm reading the Quran. So many people have even converted to Islam and Subhanallah is it's not for

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

Newser of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is truly from the help of Allah subhanho wa taala. And sometimes you have to take a step back and look at the bigger picture to understand where we are today. When we see today I have never seen this much support of Palestine and hamdulillah around the world, there are Muslim intellectuals, there are so many people who are now coming on social media and sharing their eloquent mashallah, they have a platform, they have a social media platform, they have a universal platform, and now they're using that to show and support. At the same time. If there's one good thing that has come out of this is now people are starting to see people's true

00:10:40--> 00:11:19

colors. There are so many people in Congress, there are so many people in American politics, they are filled with so much sick and hatred that they have openly said they have they have openly condone this genocide. They don't they call it a war. It's not a war. It's a genocide. Of course, they have supported this genocide. And they have verbally said that they would want every single person to be wiped out and it was finally now these people now what's in their heart is starting to show to other people. So brothers and sisters, there is so much good that is also happening to a lot of times we're making dua yalla do this and do that. And Xactly, Allah subhanho wa Taala may not be

00:11:19--> 00:12:02

giving us what we want. But there are a lot of other things that Allah subhanaw taala is doing and what Allah he more than anything else. I still cannot imagine what Allah He I can snot still imagine when you see the Palestinians, their brothers and sisters dying, their children dying, and will Allah He they have such Iman, this is the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the Nusrah of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah gave them such a heart that they see people dying in front of them, their house is being bombed, and yet they're standing outside, and they're saying what? Al Hamdulillah Wallahi when I see these kinds of stories, when I see these kinds of videos, I now

00:12:02--> 00:12:40

realize I can speak for myself, I don't want to speak for everyone else when I say this, this is a reason why I'm here and they are there. There's a reason Allah subhana what to Allah when he's putting them he knows that and he has given them such Iman these are people who are dying and right in front of them people are saying husband Allah who want to walk in and there are saying the Indians to come Allahu Allah Allah welcome and they are shocked. They are so strong in their faith with Allah he this is a kind of faith that comes only and only from Allah Jalla wa Ala and it comes from no one else. This is the nostril of Allah subhanho wa taala. So what we need to do is we need

00:12:40--> 00:13:18

to keep on pushing through our spirituality. Keep on making dua Do not ever lose hope in your do our brothers and sisters do not feel that my two R's are not working Wallahi that the province has some as you all know, there probably is some says when a believer makes dua, three things are going to happen to their dua. Either Allah will give them exactly what they are asking for. Or number two, Allah will give them something different. But another Hadith from Allah subhanho wa Taala and number three is ALLAH SubhanA. Allah will save it for the hereafter. Yes, you and I are making dua but today now we're starting to see that there are other types of things that are happening today, which

00:13:18--> 00:13:59

is now And subhanAllah. You know this the biggest thing the Quran talks about the love flow, you know, Allah is you're sleeping you have no idea this nation the entire world was in the state of a flood, the entire world was sleeping. Now the entire world is waking up to see what the reality is. And this is through Allah subhanho wa taala. So that is why it takes time for Allah's plan to go into full execution mode. Allah's plan is already in execution mode. But we have to understand Allah has a plan. We put our trust in Allah's plan, it may take a little time. Some people may even die in this process also, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by the way, says in a hadith that

00:13:59--> 00:14:39

what is better than fitna is to be gone from this dunya the Prophet alayhi salam says this is not my words, the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that it is better to be gone from this dunya to die rather than being involved in a fitna. So that is why we don't know the heck of of Allah subhanho wa Taala but we trust Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we don't ever question Allah system. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala continuously, that whatever plan he has, Yet Allah bring it down upon these people, and may Allah subhanho wa Taala hold the oppressors accountable. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide those who have even an iota amount of faith in the heart, may Allah

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

subhanho wa Taala give them guidance. And we ask ALLAH SubhanA whether to grant us Messiah as we go through these difficult times, especially our brothers and sisters in Gaza, and continuously make dua brothers and sisters, because once again, there is no hijab between the two of the Muslim and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we ask Allah Subhan to grant restore faith inshallah. immunoblotted mean, what is that Kamala
