today's webinar is dedicated to one maybe two ayat of social and file.
And as I explained what I can share with you from these it will become clear why I have chosen them.
In Iowa number 59. Allah azza wa jal describes what is a vanilla Dena Cafaro to give you some context before I translate pretty much all of Soto and fowl is commentary from Allah, for the Muslims to prepare themselves, not before the Battle of butter, but after the Battle of butter.
So it's one thing to prepare the army before they go into battle. It's another thing to prepare them after they won the battle. But you would think if they won the battle, why did they need preparation? It's interesting that before battle, Allah revealed several ayat about kita Allah and preparing for that battle, and that was done in Surah, Al Baqarah, among other places. But what Allah says about what to do afterwards is far more detailed, so ultimate valleys, exhaustive, it's massive. It is as if Allah azza wa jal wanted the Muslims to understand something that you need more mental preparation after you win. Not before you win. Because after you win, even if you have a
small victory, there's a chance you might get complacent. You there's a chance you might lose your this the same energy and that motivation, because you feel like you can't be defeated. You feel invincible temporarily. So there is a preparation being made of the Muslims after the Battle of butter. And of course, we know a much tougher challenge was ahead of us, or Hindsight is 2020. The Muslims who were reading these ayat, the Sahaba, that were listening to these ayat for the first time they didn't know that Orford is around the corner. They didn't know what was going to happen in Africa. They didn't know
What else was coming? But Allah azza wa jal knew and Allah was preparing them in advance. Now part of that preparation is also motivation about what is coming. Because you might even think we won this one time, we got this little small victory, but probably things are gonna get a lot worse afterwards you have an anxiety that the enemy will strike back and strike back much harder, and they're not going to have any, any limits in how they behave. Allah azza wa jal even describes in other places in the Quran, that the enemies of the Muslims, they're not like us, we're not allowed to attack non combatants. We're not even allowed to burn down trees, but they will not care, you
know, and Allah says, yep, sudo Alaikum idea home was seen as our home we sue, that they're going to extend their hands to you bustle ad is my jazzy phrase. It's an expression in Arabic to say, they will attack you anyway they can, any way they want. Indiscriminate doesn't matter what the collateral damage is, doesn't matter if children die doesn't matter if women die, it doesn't matter if houses and trees and animals get burnt out, they don't care, they're going to attack him that way. You know, and they will extend their hands to you indiscriminately, that's how they will do so. And some some Muslims, even in certain Montana, which I'll be talking about this week at, you know,
during a tafsir program, some Muslims thought that maybe because we have family with people back in Makkah, because the Sahaba who moved the MaHA judo and they have family back in Makkah still right? So maybe because their family that they won't hate us as much. And Allah says Linton, Farrakhan, Muhammad, Allah, Allah to come here Well, Qiyamah TFC lubaina kami says these family ties, they're not going to care about them as Kahuku Yakubu Hakuna la Kumada if they catch you, they're gonna be they're your enemies, do you think you should be kinder to them? They don't think that way. In other words, you have one kind of mentality, but your enemy has a very different kind of mentality.
There is no code, there are no rules that are binding them to a to a principle of humanity. There's no fear they have of Allah, they see the enemy and they don't care if one day define you as an enemy, doesn't matter if you have a weapon in your hand or not. You're an enemy, and you must die. It is not the way for the believer. The believers have so much discipline even on the battlefield, that if they're fighting someone in the middle of the battlefield, and the sword drops, and he says he says the Kalima they're supposed to stop their support in the middle of a fight they're supposed to stop. And so with this in mind, I wanted to share these two ions of solution and file with you.
Allah says Allah Subhan Allah Nina Cafaro saga who
don't ever imagine that those who have disbelieved, got it advantage that they got ahead. Some
another way to translate somebody who can also be don't think they got away with it.
You might think when you look at the scenario in the world, that those who are engaged in acts of oppression, those who are the frown of today, they get away with it. Nobody can stop them. We can give speeches, we can raise our voices, we can make posts, we can make videos, we can expose what they do, we can show video footage, we can show articles, research journalistic papers, even their own people, we can gather all the evidence and cry and scream and they're still doing what they're doing.
They got away with it. There's no sanctions, there's no there's no action, nothing we feel powerless. And so Allah says, Don't you ever imagine that those who disbelieved got ahead. And by the way, the disbelievers in Makkah, they had two strategies. And I want you to understand both of those strategies. One was a military strategy. I told you a little bit about that already. There is no discrimination kill everyone. That was one Oh, Allah prepared the believers to deal with that kind of enemy. You're prepared them to deal with that kind of enemy. But there was another strategy.
And the other strategy was to make sure that everybody in the region of Hejaz, the Arabian region, everybody believes that the prophets Allah Azza wa sallam is a threat. He's a threat. He's dangerous. He will destroy families. He's no good. He doesn't belong. He's not really you can't cooperate with him, spreading rumors about him and spreading a reputation about him creating propaganda against him was part of the machinery of the McCanns. The first warfare is actually information warfare before you pick up a gun. The first kind of warfare is actually information warfare, and the Quran in makinde. This is not the new Quran but in makinde Quran Allah actually
acknowledges on multiple occasions, the information warfare that the Kurdish leaders were doing, spreading by the way, just
He's a poet. We know where we're going, which Poland teaches that we know how to
come up with some stories spread.
You know, we found out that he's actually insane, verified, we have the documents to prove it. Come up with some fake documents, spread it. Let the world think let as many people as possible think that he's insane. Let as many people think this lie or that lie or another lie about him. And that moron instead of doing an investigative report on each of those allegations, you know, when he's looking around just says, Yeah, you're not insane.
You're not a liar. Let's move on.
Let's move on. In other words, the Quran didn't allow the Muslims to get distracted by the propaganda and make us feel the need to respond to each attack. Just Allah says, Hey, you didn't do that. That's not you. That's not you. You know, my internet material can be Kahin. While much known, let's move on. You're not by the blessing of Allah. You're not a mind reader. You're not a sorcerer. And you're not insane. That's it, we can move on.
You know, and by the way, just because we're not going to respond doesn't mean that the propaganda that is made the lies that are spread against the believer, they don't hurt ie they hurt even the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will cause nallah who illegal South Africa be my own? Allah says Allah tells about the Prophet himself. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who's going to question the Eman rasool Allah Allah Allah Allah. Allah says, because of what they say we know that your chest hurts their words cause you pain. Well, that's just my own demeanor Latina who to GitHub and company comm Amina Latina Ashra who doesn't Kathira you're gonna hear a lot of painful words
coming from those who are given the book before you and those who commit ship you're going to hear many painful things you're going to hear horrible, terrible, ugly allegations while we're in hospital with a taco for inauthentic I mean as we know more this is what hola by the way that I had that I just cited for you that was from Iran after the Battle of a hurt but I need to focus and come back to what happens after
he says Don't you think that they got away in the hola yo, they're not going to overpower. They are not going to make you adages I just need to powerless. You are just is someone who makes someone else powerless understand the Arabic of this if there's two people wrestling, or like UFC fights, some of you guys like to watch if one guy taps the other guy taps out, he became more just he became a Hodges the other one is more just he surrendered. He made him surrender. He made him give in I want you to move forward. There's a lot of people standing in the back. If you can't have space in front of you take it
in the home like
they are not going to cause you to surrender. They are not going to render you powerless. The feeling the frustration that the believer is powerless is a lie.
That's a lie. We cannot afford to believe the believer in this book. The believer in Allah Quran is telling the Muslims already doesn't matter how much more overwhelming their forces are, what other attack they will come with. Let me give you one thing when I accidentally Athena Cafaro Sadako don't let them think they should never think that they got ahead that they have they got away with it and they will not be overpowering. They won't be over overpowering Allah and not even you.
But then in the next aisle, which was actually supposed to be my primary focus today.
Allah azza wa jal says, Well, I do love them.
Get ready for them.
Prepare for them. Get ready for them. Allah could have just sold hold us Allah is enough for them. Like Allah says in another place in the Quran cough Hola. Hola. Nina located, Allah has enough to fight against the for the believers. Allah has enough as your support. And we all know what happened at Better Angels came before we even came. The angel struck before we even struck Allah is enough. But then Allah at the same time tells the Muslims now prepare.
Prepare for them. How does? How does a team prepare for a match? They study their enemy, isn't it?
If you're gonna play a certain team in a football match, if you're gonna play a certain team in a rugby match, I am in Australia, I gotta reference rugby.
If you're gonna, these athletes that are fighting for the UFC championship, do they not study their opponent? Do they not study their strengths, their weaknesses? Don't they analyze what's their strategies? Because if you're going to engage in a fight and prepare, it doesn't just mean I'm going to prepare on my own. I'm going to study my enemy. I'm going to watch the footage. I'm going to understand how they play their game. I'm going to understand how they get away with it because I need
to play them, I need to beat them at their game.
That's my opponent when Allah says into the home, that the home is really important. He didn't just say I didn't do prepare, prepare would mean hey, let's, let's start exercising, let's start gathering, let's empower ourselves and we don't we don't care about what they do, Allah will take care of it. No, Allah says, I do Allah home,
understand your enemy, study your enemy, learn their strategies, how do they play the media? What financial games do they play? What political games do they play? What's going on behind the scenes? If you don't understand that you're not understanding this idea? Also, allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam understood the Quraysh. And he understood, who are the colourations trade partners, who are their alliances, when Where did they go and make their money? How did they build their social network? Who is in affiliation with them, he understood the enemy.
And then Allah says, if it's something more profound, he says, muscle, mass Tata atonement COVID. I was reading a shoe Rahim Allah on this idea. He said something really beautiful about Mr. Thornton.
He said this is a wasa Let me translate in English first, he says prepare for them what ever you can, whatever you're able to prepare.
Allah could have been very specific, Allah could have said prepare swords, prepare, you know, prepare archers, prepare spears, prepare battle training, prepare ships.
He didn't say any of that. He said, Whatever you can you know what that means. That means that this is not referring to one battlefield or one strategy. There are multiple battlefields like I said, there was a military war, but there was also an information war, wasn't it.
And some of you are going to be very good. Your preparation will be gathering intelligence, somebody else's preparation will be understanding this, the economic strategy, somebody else's preparation will be understanding the military strategy. There are different people that are poised and specialized in understanding different components of the enemy, and you will all have to get involved. This is a command for the collective muster throttle. Allah gave each one of us a different kinds of strength, a different kind of ability.
And he wants to the Muslims were being told at the time, you now need to understand that this preparation is not one kind of preparation. It's multifaceted. You should not think of it in one direction one way, you have to think of it in multiple ways. And then he says Min coverton which is one of my most, most incredible phrases in the Quran, prepare whatever you can mean. This is called min turnover in Arabic, any kind of power you can
prepare for them, whatever you can, gathering and collecting any kind of power at all. Allah didn't say Allahu wa bolometer, if this is a turnkey Arabic students will hear will know. And minutes not just by an ear, it's also minute an hour, which means any kind of power. So the thing now what I want to leave you with, I want you to I want you to really give thought to this.
The world functions on power.
Whether it's in the world of science, your car, your vehicle needs power to run, their houses need electrical power to function, right trains and airplanes and all of the devices we have need battery power or some kind of power. But the society itself functions on power.
Your boss has certain power, the police officer down the street has certain power. The government has certain power. People in a family if you're the head of the household, you have a certain amount of power.
The Quran in this ayah is giving us something incredible. It's telling us to understand power is not one thing.
Power is multiple things. And you have to understand that power is changing all the time. It's not one definition. And Allah then says to the Muslims of that time when men rebelled and hail
gather whatever power you can especially you need to gather the ability to charge with horses. So he mentioned horses second this has been a you know, this is an Intifada when an armadillo has. He went from the open all kinds of power but especially horses. Why? Especially horses because at Burger we had very few horses
and Allah is letting us know listen, the more horses you have something that the enemy sees that you are gathering more horses, it's going to scare them to he gonna be here I do Allah. It's going to be a deterrent for you.
But Allah is teaching me I could have just said just prepare horses.
He said, No all kinds of power. So what I want you to leave the thought I want to leave with you is as follows. I live in the United States, and in the United States, you will think the highest position of power is the presidency, you will think, you know, the Pharaoh's palace, the White House, that's the seat of power. That's where the, you know, the, the Commander in Chief of the military, the United States military sits with the red button. That's where the executive chief executive sits, he can give executive orders, etc. But if you know anything about politics, especially about American politics, you will know that presidents are not much more than puppets.
Presidents can come and go. But presidents, they'll give a public speech or shake hands and do a press release. But when that press release is over, they're gonna go meet with CEOs and boards of conglomerates and weapons manufacturers and the oil industry and the media industries and all of those multibillion trillion dollar corporations that will sign the checks for their next campaign, or let them know, Hey, this is what you need to push. And this is what you don't need to push, you will think it looks like the President is in power. But behind him is an entire economic engine. And that's actually in power. And if he messes with that economic engine he's done with, he's done with.
And this is a reality. I think everybody, Nobody's naive here. Everybody knows this. Everybody knows this. There used to be a time where you would think and Muslims will think power means military. Power means weapons, our means planes, tanks, nuclear bombs. This is what power means. But actually, those even those militaries or militaries for hire. Behind them is another kind of power behind them isn't economic power. Behind them is immediate power behind them as technological power. The definition of power changed. The definition of power in the world has changed. presidents come and go Corporation State. wars come and go, and one party wins and the other party wins. But the
corporation keeps making more and more money. Even in this current conflict you. You can easily imagine that weapons manufacturers all over the West Europe and the United States. There's Scott their stocks are skyrocketing right now.
They're skyrocketing right now who profits from this who gains more power and the more power they gain, the more influence they gain.
When Muslims don't understand their enemy, I do love them. Because the enemy put somebody in front of you that you think this is the real enemy. But behind them, there's an entire mechanism if you don't understand that mechanism, you've prepared nothing.
You prepare nothing. We need to now it's time that Muslims need to put their best foot forward. These crisis we all know some of you are my age, some of you are older than I am, some of you are younger than I am even the ones that are older than I am. We have seen not one but multiple disasters of the Ummah, every year every other year.
Some people here sitting here remember what happened in Bosnia. Some people sitting here remember what was going on in Kosovo? What was happening in India.
Some people these tragedies of the OMA the bloodshed, though mass bloodshed of the mind that every time that happens, what do we say? We have to raise our voice, we have to raise our voice. We have to raise our voice. We've been saying this for 50 years, 60 years, 70 years, 80 years, raise your voice raise your what? The guy was 18 years old. He's 58 years old. Now he's still raising his voice.
But something doesn't change. And then we say No, Allah is not answering our doors, we need to do something more drastic. Maybe we don't understand what Allah told us all along. You need you want to be able to be heard.
You want to be able to be heard without even raising your voice.
Learn together power. The old the the enemy of Allah doesn't fear your voice. You know what they fear though? Torah Hebrew gonna be here do Allah when you start amassing power. When you become powerful. There are nations in the world. I'll end with this. There are nations in the world today
that have a military, but they don't intend on invading other nations. They have no interest in invading other nations, but they have a lot of interest in doing business with other nations.
So they're opening up their buying ports, and they're making investments all over the world. And those same nations after they make all these investments, sometimes they are oppressing their own population,
And you know what, nobody will say anything. Not because we're afraid of their military. Because if anybody reads
says your voice and says, Hey, you can't do that to those people. They'll say, Okay, we'll just pull out our investments from your country, and let your entire currency tank and let your real estate market crash and let your let your stock market crash. Let's see how you deal with that. So everybody just quietly lets them do whatever they want to do you know why? Because they didn't need a military or fighter jets or weapons to have power. They just they used economic power as their engine, didn't they?
And with that power, they don't have to even open their mouth.
They don't have to say anything, and they're hurt around the world anyway.
Muslims, it is time us collectively we start thinking about that we start thinking about what does it mean to be powerful and strategic in dealing with propaganda? What does it mean to become powerful and strategic in dealing with the economic engines that run this world? And how do we combat that together as an old man, we are the most precious human resource is the precious resource is actually the human resource. And we are a massive population of the world. The Muslims are the most powerful population on Earth, without realizing it.
Absolutely, without realizing it. If we don't understand these lessons, and we if we want to see change come overnight, for dreaming of change is coming. When is the change coming? When is the help of Allah coming? Wait, hold on. This is not how it comes. Allah has given a formula in his book, he gave us a formula if you don't want to follow that formula, then the problem is not with the dean. And the problem is not its problems with you.
So allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach us that even in the middle of the greatest fitna, if you are planting a tree, keep planting the tree. Why? Because planting a tree is not a short term strategy. It is a long term strategy. And power does not come if you get power quickly. You will lose power quickly. But you have to build power if you want it to be sustainable. You have to build that power, especially the young people that are here. I actually want you to not only engage seriously in the study of Allah's book, but I want you to seriously start thinking about what power means Allah wants us to explore the meaning of this word. Because Allah wants to gather make us
gathers and he wants to make us gathered after observing our enemy. I do know whom Mustafa mimco attend. Amin ribbleton Hi, may Allah azza wa jal make us realize how powerful we truly are. And may Allah azza wa jal help us as an ummah to live up to the mandate of this idea of becoming a truly powerful Ummah that doesn't have to yell and scream for his voice to be heard. It's very existence creates fear in those who would want to kill innocents. BarakAllahu li Welcome to Quran Al Hakim when I finally we can build it with a grid hockey
