Today in sha Allah I want to share with you all a story from the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, once again understanding that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also went through similar challenges just as you and I, we are going through today. Once again, it's hard to say you and I while we're sitting all the way here in luxury in AC, you know, our homes are 100 are intact. There is no concerns of safety necessarily as they are our brothers and sisters are facing an Uzza and they are the ones who are truly making the sacrifice they are the ones truly are deserving of Allah's Rama and mercy. And yesterday, you know, you sometimes you're looking for a

00:00:43--> 00:01:31

glimmer of hope. And yesterday I was sitting just on my phone and there was a message that was sent to me that and Willa Hollom what is the truth behind this, but I certainly believe that you shall have this is the truth that someone had posted that they had reached out. And there was a woman and Eliza who sent a message that I know you all are weeping because of us. But I want to tell you, that we are seeing the the power of Allah subhanho wa taala. And while we are at night, and while they are dropping bombs upon us, we can smell the perfume in the in the atmosphere. And she's telling us that remember the all these people who are the shahada for them is just like a pinch. And then the

00:01:31--> 00:02:15

pain that they go through when things the impact happens is just like a pinch, but then they go for eternity into the Rama and mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. And I want to remind us all myself and everyone here is that if you go back to Surah, Yaseen and Surah Yaseen, ALLAH SubhanA wa that talks about a man who was calling people to Allah subhanho wa Taala Have you been in a job? This is the name given that we find in the books of the Pharisee or wotja original Minocqua said Medina Yes, I call a comet Tabby, almost setting it to your own Mala? Yes, Alikum agilon Mahoma Dune, Allah Subhana Allah talks about the story of some young some men who came to a city, they approached a

00:02:15--> 00:02:54

city with the intention of giving them Dawa. They rejected their message, but there was one man who came to their aid. And when this man came to their aid, instead of listening to this person who was from their city, they killed him. But what did he say at the very end while his life was being taken, and he's being told the letter hotel Jana, that enter into Jana? He said Paul, later call me Allah Munna be my LaFerrari rugby watch our other name Ian McCraw means Rohan Allah, that Allah subhanho wa taala. He tells us in the Quran that while this man his life, and his soul has been taken away.

00:02:55--> 00:03:37

He says that I wish my home knew that what kind of Raisa Allah subhanho wa Taala has given me what how Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven me what your Allah anemia McCraw mean and he has made me from those who have earned Allah subhanho wa Taala is or is and his AECOM so Subhanallah I know that we are so much in pain. For me also yesterday, I just all day long, just thinking about the Vasa you know, I couldn't just take even take a lot of interest in my own family, just thinking about our family and a versa and I want to, I want to finish off on this in sha Allah, that while many of us we feel all the time to dejected about these kind of situations, and not only that, but Subhanallah

00:03:37--> 00:04:15

on social media, you find all these crazy people now, who are you know, Christian pastors and so forth saying that this is what the Bible prophesies and so forth will lie. You know, their Bible is corrupt as it is we know. Okay, whatever we know it is from the Quran and from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will give victory inshallah to our brothers and sisters and to the Muslims. That is what's going to happen. I don't care about their prophecies, but I care today a lot of times about our youth and what they're listening to when they said on social media, but the story

00:04:15--> 00:04:54

for the sila Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a story of Arabia. And I'm not going to go through the entire story. I'm just gonna go. I'm gonna fast forward to the end of the story of her day via pictures. I want you all to think I want all of us here to think about the situation of Arabia, the Battle of afford, the Battle of Baghdad has already taken place. The Muslims were victorious after the Battle of Ohio. They though the Quraysh retreated, the Muslims came back to Medina, they were licking their wounds after the Battle of heart. Then you have the Battle of a hijab, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada sent a wind in support of the Muslims and if you study the Battle of

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Azov, it was extremely cold in those days. And Allah subhanho wa Taala he deployed

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

heated the resources of the the enemies of Islam. And as a result Allah subhanho wa Taala gave victory to the Muslims. Now you put yourself in that situation and you ask yourself, what is the position? What is the political position of the Muslims? And you will say that Germany it is much, much stronger and yes, it was stronger, but at the same time, they still did face some kind of defeat along the way. And this brings us to the battle or not the battle but the expedition of Arabia, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sees a dream that he is performing Amara and we know based on our Aveda and our theology, that when a newbie or a prophet sees a dream, it is a

00:05:42--> 00:06:29

message from Allah subhanho wa taala. So the Prophet saw some he takes his Sahaba or YOLO unknown to mugger with the NIA and intention of Umrah Of course, there's a lot that has transpired prior to his entry into Mecca. But that year think about this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in a position of power, he has so much now cloud political clout in that area. Yet when he comes to Mecca, he is stopped and he is prevented from performing Umrah and not just prevented from from performing Umrah. But then he is forced into signing an agreement with the Quraysh This is why is called the Treaty of Arabia. But this was an agreement between Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

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

sallam, and the courage and you have to understand that this was not just a very easy process. This was a very hostile process to be honest, where there was allah sallallahu it was setting them as we all know, he could neither read nor write. So he had either the Allah Juan as his scribe, to document what the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to see on this on this treaty or agreement. And so when the treaty began, the Prophet saw someone told her ILD Allah who is the right Bismillah R Rahman Rahim they said no no Bismillah R Rahman Rahim we don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala you simply read this meter Allah Okay, fine, no problem. Now right? I am Muhammad

00:07:10--> 00:07:49

Sallallahu Sallam declared such and such No, no, no, no, no, we were not okay with that either. You have to write because we don't declare you as Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam. So you have to write it, Mohammed, Abdullah, Abdullah, declare such and such, the entire agreement was a one sided agreement. This is where I want all of us to understand what's going on. This is sort of like a defeat to the Muslims. This is sort of like a defeat to the Muslims. The entire agreement was one sided. If someone comes to Mecca from Medina, we will keep them here in Makkah. But if someone comes to you in Medina, then you from Makkah that you have to return them to Mecca, you cannot perform Umrah this

00:07:49--> 00:08:32

year, you will come back next year. All these things are not going in favor of the Muslims. And you have to understand that at that time people like on top of the Allah one, he's saying yes to Allah, why are we agreeing to these terms, because in his mind, in the mind of Almighty God, Allah Who and he's seen this as a defeat, the Sahaba, the Allah on whom they see this as a defeat, they may not be vocal about it the way your thought is that some but some Sahaba internally, they feel like this is a defeat. And not only that, but as soon as they made this agreement, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had enough integrity, that to up to maintain and to uphold the, the the terms of this

00:08:32--> 00:09:21

agreement. And not only that, but right at that time, there was a Sahabi who was able to escape, because this man was being persecuted religiously persecuted, he escaped from his shackles. And he came to us with our cell phone while he was selling in hopes that Ross was Saddam was save him. And all that the property is some could do, which was so hurtful. Just like today, you and I we see what's happening in Gaza, and we're so hurtful and you can't do anything about it. That was a similar situation for the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu when they had to see Rasulullah sallallahu it was send them take the sahabi who came who who escaped his persecutors and came to the province of

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

Salem to seek refuge only for the Prophet SAW Salem to take the sahabi and hand him back over to the kurush think about that moment from thing but that moment that you feel the helpless I'm going to hotdog and the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu feel the helpless Roswaal Sam feels helpless what can we do at that time? Just like today you and I we feel helpless at times. That is what hurts us the most will lie yeah times that normally was happening there to our brothers and sisters. And we feel like we can't do what more can we do over here just like that the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu they felt helpless to that

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

Time and the problem was son, he finished off this agreement and they're heading back to Medina and at that time, I'm going to help out with the Alana line. He's coming to obika the Alana line, and he's going back to others and he's asking us why so long while he was set up, in fact, he didn't even approach us Law Center because he was still so upset. But Allah subhanho wa taala. He then revealed the verses in Fontana like a Fatah Medina. You think this is a defeat, but there is victory behind this of Allah subhanho wa taala. And that is the in the Eman and the attain that we have to put in Allah subhanho wa Taala the though we see this as a defeat, but Allah subhana wa Tada has a

00:10:42--> 00:11:22

bigger plan. That is what we have to believe when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala look at every single story in the Quran. It does not begin with a happy story. There are difficulties that come in the beginning. Then there is there comes victory and Rama and mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was born as an orphan at the age of six he lost his mother at the age of eight he lost his grandfather, and then just trials after trials in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when did either Jaya Anna Sula to come towards the end of the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so brothers sisters, I know many of us we feel

00:11:22--> 00:11:56

helpless. And there are many things excuse me, there are many things that our you know people are Muslim committee members who are involved in politics are telling us things that we can do, like yesterday was mentioned the code but the things that we can do, at least on our part, we do them we come closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. At least we recite La Ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah in the continual volume and I'm not saying that this number is necessarily from the Sierra or the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but there's no harm in the fact that if we recite later in the interest of Hanukkah, iniquity, more volume in 100 times the morning and 100 times in the

00:11:56--> 00:12:32

evening, we send our Peace and blessings upon us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, make it a point for each one of us here. We send our Peace and blessings upon us Allah Salam abundantly throughout the day, because Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam has taught us that when you send your peace and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam abundantly, Allah subhanho wa Taala will remove our difficulties. And this is a time where we come back to Allah subhanho wa taala. At least do what we can on our part when it comes to even by boycotting certain products. I know some people might be thinking when you look at a list that is floating around on WhatsApp, and you're thinking

00:12:32--> 00:13:12

to yourself, how can you stay away from every single thing, if you cannot stay away from every single thing that is the best, that is awesome. But if you cannot stay away, at least if you can from majority, because you don't realize every time if every single person were to stay away, and they don't buy, it doesn't build up pennies, make pennies turn into dollars. And likewise, it's their pockets that get affected. Just yesterday, someone said, even if you go online, and you put a one star rating for Facebook, because Facebook has taken down certain posts of certain people because they have been pro Palestinian that in that case, it will bring down their rating. And if

00:13:12--> 00:13:50

100,000 Muslims and 100,000 people come together, and they put one star rating for Facebook, this will bring down the rating. And if Google on the Google store on the Android store, or I mean on the on the Apple Store, if a certain app gets all the way down very low, they sometimes will just even remove it especially on the Google Store app or on the Google store, they will remove the application completely. There are things that you and I we can do Wallahi there are things that you and I we can do on our end, but we can never lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why we go back to the Quran. And we find these kinds of stories. Why do you think I'm going to finish on

00:13:50--> 00:14:35

this? Why do you think brothers and sisters why do we think that the stories are in the Quran just just for story purposes, so we can share them with each other know, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows within his infinite wisdom, within His infinite knowledge that these kinds of things, these kinds of similar circumstances are going to occur again in history. And at that time, this is where we come back to the Quran. When Allah says what who knows Zito Minella Qurani Ma? Who was she on? This Quran is a source of Shiva, just like you and I were going through pain and we use medication to bring us relief. We come back to the Quran and this Quran is now serving as a Shiva for us. We read the

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

stories and they bring us some consolation that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will inshallah provide victory. It takes a little time, but just like well, we're going through Sahaba they went through the same thing. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam they went through the same thing, of course in a much higher magnitude, but the Prophet SAW Selim the sahaba. They went through some things that unite we are going through through something similar, but just like they did not lose

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

Hope and just like Allah subhanho wa Taala said there is going to be victory that will come to you in sha Allah likewise victory inshallah will come, we just have to be patient and do what we have to do on our part. Ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that you know right now we're coming for Fajr it was raining and you see Subhanallah all these droplets coming down I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that just like these raindrops are falling May Allah subhanho wa Taala ring similarly His angels down in the area of Philistine to help our brothers and sisters and may Allah subhanho wa Taala provide them relief May Allah subhana wa Tada help them and we ask Allah subhana wa Tada Yet Allah in this

00:15:37--> 00:15:46

particular time only you can help them yeah Allah Ya Allah we asked you to please help our brothers sisters and Philistine. I mean I mean what does that mean Allah hi I said I'm already going to live

00:15:50--> 00:16:08
