Nada nada Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen what are the one on one I mean, when I have people to live with Chuck in a lot more suddenly with Selim about it and it killed us with the King Mohammed and sola lahardee he was Salaam. While Ernie he also had to send them to semen kathira. Their brothers and sisters the IRS which I just recited are the IRS from sawtell column. One of the first suitors to be revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam according to the law, it was probably the fifth sort of the fourth or the fifth revelation to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And in it Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and leave me and those that have plotted
against me, leave me and the evildoers send us that region home in Haifa alone. We will pull them in we will reel them in from angles that they would never expect we will take care of the wrongdoers will only let him in a KD Mateen. And though I might grant them respite, I might grant them recite. My plan is still stable. And Allah subhana wa tada mentions those that hold back from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam those that mock the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, those that plot against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then Allah subhana wa tada gives a message to the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam, not to lose hope. fosse will be the one who tells everyone
else to be patient, the one who tells the companions when they come to him, when will the help of a law come? Will you ask Allah Subhana which Allah to hurry up to help Hurry up the victory to bring it as soon as he can. And the prophets lie Selim has to continuously tell everyone, be patient with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah says to this man sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fosterville be patient with the command of your Lord. Allah techwin kalsa he bill fruity is nada Macedon and do not be like the Companion of the well. When he called upon Allah Subhana Allah to Allah only as he was swallowed by that well, and this is very significant and very interesting, because if I was to ask
anyone, who do you think the first prophet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was ever told about? Most people would say Musa alayhis salam because so much of the Quran revolves around Musa alayhis salaam, some would say maybe recyling salaam, maybe Ibrahim alayhis salam, Abu al anbiya, the father of the prophets, maybe new Allah His Salaam, the first of the messengers, we would come up with many names, but the first prophet that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told about is Eunice la his Salah. Fosbury hook me up Nicola chacun Casa hibel food Do not be like the Companion of the word of Allah subhanaw taala doesn't even say his name as Yunus Yeah, and Allah
subhanaw taala doesn't say to the Prophet slicin um, don't be like Yunus. He says Lata couldn't kill Sahib bill Hootie is nada, we're who are Macedon Don't be like Yunus, whenever he called upon Allah subhanaw taala as he was swallowed by the by that well, and as he was in the belly of that well, and this is very simple.
If we can't because in certain column, Allah Subhana, which Allah gives the first method, the first analogy, the first parable for the for the people of grace, and the first parable to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah tells the people of Quraysh about in Bellona in abalone abalone shell jannetty is Apple's mo layoffs. Lehman was behind a loss. penciler warns the people of Piraeus, not to be like the people of the garden, a people that came before who had a rich, wealthy, generous father that used to give from his garden. But then, whenever there is children inherited that garden, they became rough with the poor, they became ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And
they tried to harvest everything in their garden before the poor would come in the morning to beg and to pick from that garden and a lot destroyed them and destroyed their garden.
Allah subhanaw taala warns the people of Christ to remember your father Ibrahim alayhis salam who established the city of Mecca who made your app for it and when you turn your back on a loss of Hannah Hudson Allah, everything that you own will be destroyed and you will be placed back in a situation of desperation. Then Allah subhanaw taala tells the profit slice on not to be like Yunus it his salon in that situation. And briefly, dear brothers and sisters, why is this so profound? And why is this so powerful? I have an extended version of the Tafseer of this, I have these ads online. I'm just going to give it to you in two minutes, inshallah Tada, and then move on Yunus alayhis
salam is a very interesting messenger. He's a very interesting Nabhi because he was sent to the people of Iraq, particularly Indian aiwa, a town called Dyneema. And Eunice alayhis salaam dealt with mockery from his people, and aggression from his people like many that came before him, and then he made them notify him or him Allah to Allah. He says Allah subhanho wa Taala does not destroy people, until they commit Lulu until they commit transgression and oppression and become aggressive with their profits, meaning Allah did not use to destroy nations, because they were disbelievers, rather, Allah azzawajal destroys nations when they become aggressors. When they start to oppress,
and when they start to harm the Prophet and the believers and with Yunus alayhis salam, he started to face that aggression and as a lot as a judge says about every other nation before Alekna Humala, mavala more, we destroy them one day oppress. So, Yunus alayhis salam as he is dealing with these people's transgressions, and he's dealing with their co for he loses hope and his people.
And so he warns his people of the punishment of Allah subhanho Tiana and he leaves them without taking permission from a loss of hundreds Allah thinking there is no way that these people will repent. And as Yunus alayhis salam warns his people, he sees the clouds forming in the skies, and the people see those clouds forming Yunus alayhis salaam leaves them. And when Eunice goes to board a shift to leave his people, his people do something which is almost unprecedented. They make Toba collectively they repent collectively to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they look for their messenger to teach them the religion. And Eunice alayhis
salam as he left his people and he boarded that ship, as he was on that ship. Those same clouds that he thought were that he thought was were there to destroy his people started to rain heavily upon that ship.
And the ocean started to rock that ship back and forth. And the people threw their luggage overboard. And then they decided that they have to throw one of them overboard so they cast lots and it came upon us and he his Salaam and Eunice and Abbey of Allah, a prophet of Allah was thrown overboard. And as he was thrown overboard in the darkness of the nights a well swallowed him and Dove to the depths of the ocean. And as Abdullah mystery was already allowed, Tyler Andrew says Think about this. Eunice alayhis salaam, was in the darkness of the nights, the darkness of the ocean, the darkness of the stomach of that well, all the way at the bottom of that ocean. Think
about how hopeless of a situation this is.
And he realizes as he's in the stomach of that well, that he's not dead because initially thought he was dead. No one's ever been in that situation. But he realizes that he can move his toes and that he hears the pebbles at the bottom of the ocean making tests ba
and he puts himself into a position of sujood prostration as the acid is consuming him. And he says Oh Allah, I'm calling upon you from a place that I don't think anyone has ever called upon you from before. I don't think anyone
has ever been in this situation before, in the stomach of a whale at the bottom of an ocean, and he calls upon Allah subhanho wa Taala with the legendary there,
that the prophet SAW Allah and he was seldom said if we make that if we make that supplication in our times of hardship Allah subhanho wa Taala will relieve us of that hardship. La Ilaha in subhanak in the consuming of violin.
How perfect are you? La Ilaha Illa and there is no god besides you. How perfect Are you in me consuming a violin? I transgressed against myself. I have wronged myself.
And as a last resort, tell her that you're of Eunice alayhis salam,
the whale spit him out.
And Allah Subhana hoods Allah says, No no Lola antidiarrheal near maximum that won't be here. No, no be that'd be la Eva Who Am azmoun had the name of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah not content, the blessing of Allah. Interestingly enough, the surah starts off with ma Entebbe near Mati Robbie Cubby, Majnoon, you are not by the blessing of your Lord a madman. You are not by the name of Allah, a madman Allah says had the name of Allah not come to us and even Salaam he would have laid bare naked, blameworthy, consumed, destroyed, hopeless, helpless, but instead, as the whales spit him out, and he lay on an islands, and the acid was all over his skin and the sun rose upon him and as
the sun burned him, he screamed out continued to scream out La ilaha illa Anta subhanak in the quantum in a violent mean. He came back to his people and found them worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala and accepting him and asking him to teach them the religion. Now Allah subhana wa tada says, first about hora boo fudge aluminous Allah and Allah chose him and made him from the righteous and so you're just adding his salon after this experience was actually in a better situation than he was before because his Toba elevated him his repentance elevated him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no one of you should say Leia punana hadoken no one of you should say, and I hate
them in unison no matter that I am better than Eunice Jonah. The son of better no one of us would say that they are better than him. Why? Because this man was an honorable man. But Eunice alehissalaam made a mistake. He lost hope in his data. He lost hope and his people. He lost hope in change. And Allah subhana wa tada tested him and had a lot left Yunus to himself Yunus would have been destroyed. But instead he came back to a loss of hundreds. How amazing is it?
That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
It is most hopeless and helpless moments, the ends of the humiliation of thought,
the end of the stoning, the blood, the spit, the sweat, the tears of thought. The end of the rejection of thought of the worst day of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ends up in a garden.
And the people that own that garden look out and they see him in his most hopeless situation, covered in blood, covered in hopelessness covered in despair. And they feel sorry for him. And they send to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they're serving at us.
And he goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with some grapes, and something to suit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And as he hands the Prophet sallallahu I didn't even sell him those grapes. The Prophet sallallahu I didn't even sell them says Bismillah In the name of Allah.
Allah does says to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, that these are words that the people of this land don't speak. Where did you learn those words? Well, so last year I sent him he said, Where are you from? He said, I'm from Nineveh in Iraq. casola sai salam, he says, mean out of the Navy, a soil well above the soil a unit of no matter. Your from the land of the righteous Prophet, the land of the righteous servants unisim no matter
and a das responds and he says, What am I gonna be? How do you know that he's a prophet?
And the prophets lie Selim says, Who and Abby will nnb he is a prophet, and I am a prophet and the prophets are brothers in faith
Deus falls to the feet of the prophets why Selim and embraces him and becomes the only human being to accept him on that day. Can you imagine a lot Isaiah just sent the prophets lie Selim early on in His revelation, do not despair like Yunus it his Salaam wants despair, don't lose hope, like he wants to lost hope. And on the worst day of the profit slice of his life, Allah sends him a member of the oma of Yunus, Allah His Salaam to accept Him as well. Dear brothers and sisters in that is a profound message, a profound revelation in and of itself, that you never lose hope and doubt, that you never lose hope in the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that you don't have the right to ever
despair because it was never in your hands in the first place. And as the world seemingly is falling apart, and everyone is seemingly rejecting Allah subhanho to Allah, and it seems like it's pointless to do anything. That is the moment where you should strive hardest because you don't know when Allah subhanho wa Taala his victory will come. And you don't know when Allah subhanho wa Taala his help will come. And you should not be impatient with a loss of Hannah hoods Allah. And when we look at the world today, so many times people say, you look at the buzzer. You look at the coup in Egypt. You look at the massacre in Syria from Bashar Al Asad, the ethnic cleansing of the Burmese and the
people in the Central African Republic, the oppression of the Muslim, some of the Muslims in China as they're not able to practice their faith anymore. You look at all of this volume in the world, this world as it's soaked in transgression and oppression. And you expect us to see hope. What do we do? It's depressing. I feel like I can't do anything.
As a parent, lots of condition. That's called analysis paralysis. You become paralyzed by looking too much at the news. And by looking at the world, and in this in its grand picture, and not understanding the grand scheme of things, rather seeing the world as this whole and saying, it's all done, it's all over. And so I will no longer make any changes in my own home, or try to change my own spirituality or try to impact my own community or my own country. It's all over anyway. What's the point?
And Allah Subhana huts Allah tells you to work, to act and not lose patience in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Your brothers and sisters there are many times in the past where people thought that the day of judgment was near and spamela. In the previous lecture, you heard all of these examples where people said the day of judgment is coming. The hour is near. And it's intriguing. Everyone wants to know when the hour is. Everyone wants to know even in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the number one ask question in the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was matassa. When is the hour? When is the day of judgment? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would respond not
with an answer of despair, not with an answer of who knows Russell last ly Selim would respond. nada de la. Why did you prepare for it?
Don't worry about what it is. What have you done? What have you done to prepare yourself for the hour? One time the prophets I sent him he responded to that question. And he said, by the time this young boy has gray hair, your hour would have already come meaning you'll be dead anyway. And when you're in your grave, it doesn't matter if the Day of Judgment is in 100 years or in 1000 years, your piano has already come. What have you done? How have you worked? Or have you just sat back and said and you know, one day the Maddie will come? And inshallah we'll all be good. And you know, this chef, he said that the Day of Judgment is the year 2014. The Day of Judgment is the year 2026. Based
on my analysis, it must be this and this and that you know what these people are actually digital. These people are actually George and George, these people are actually this. It's already done. We're already living the times and the story, sit back, go cling to a mountain. And don't leave because fitna is rampant now. And there is no need for you to do anything. It's all confusing. That message is unhealthy. And that message ignores the past. I want to share with you all a few incidents from the past in the year 939 30.
That carrabba was besieged by a man by the name of Alibaba,
who belonged to a deviant sect known as alkire Amita
elcometer. They besieged the carrabba because they came from such a deviant ideology that they said that Hajj is a pagan ritual, and anyone who does Hajj is a Catholic. These extremists stood at the borders of Mecca and they massacred the people
We're coming for hedge from all over the world. Not only that, they slaughtered the people that were already on their way to the Caribbean already within the borders
and they threw them into the well of Zamzam. And the well of Zamzam turned red from the blood of the people that were thrown into it. Not only that, they stole allegedly as well. They stole the black stone. And would you believe me if I told you that in the year 930? Not a single person performed Hajj.
Can you imagine that?
Can you imagine the panic in the world?
If no one performed Hajj this year,
it must be your milky ama. It must be the day of judgment. But it wasn't. That group was destroyed. The Blackstone was returned. And hedge continued and the oma thrived in the year 1095.
November of 1095,
Pope Urban the second
writes a letter to the Crusaders, and he says the following.
He says Behold, every soldier wearing the Cross has been granted forgiveness by God for all of their past and future sins. If those who set out should lose their lives on the way, by land, or in crossing the sea, or in fighting the pagans, their sins shall be forgiven. Oh, what a disgrace of a race so despised, and the instrument of demons should so overcome a people endowed with faith in this all powerful God, and responded in the name of Christ. Let those who for a long time have been robbers and fornicators and adulterers, now become soldiers of Christ. Let those who fought against their brothers and relatives now fight against the pagans. Let them zealously undertake the journey
under the guidance of Christ, let them murder every pagan man, woman and child and desecrate their demon temples.
This is the definition of religiously sanctioned terrorism, not in the name of Islam, not in the name of Judaism, straight from the Catholic Church in the 11th century from the from the mouth of the pope himself. The prisoners were freed from Europe to bring him out of economic bankruptcy, under the veil of religion
by capturing Jerusalem, and they sent all of these thieves and these robbers to Jerusalem and essentially told them to have their way with the Muslims.
On December 11 1098,
the Crusaders besieged the first stronghold of Assam,
of Assam, which is modern day Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. And they received a city by the name of my Allah.
And they sent a message to the people in my Allah. And they promised that if they put their arms down, they would spare every life in Mandala
as the Muslims put their arms down,
and accepted to come under siege of the Crusaders, Bohemians, who was in charge of that army, in three days, killed every man, woman, child and beast in Ottawa. And they wrote about it themselves. They set fire to every single messages. They burned the city to the ground, and they did not leave until every house was demolished. And every life was taken. Right off, who was of the army? He wrote himself. He says we boiled the pagan adults in cooking pots. We impelled their children on sticks and devoured them grilled.
Can you imagine some kind of law This is what he's writing.
He says that we live down our most wild desires with their women and then we mutilated them
and hung them by their breasts. Albert of AIX wrote our troops ate the dead Turks and Saracens and we even ate their dogs. This is the brutality that the people of Assam were subjected to in the year 1098.
Then, in the year 1099,
under St. Augustine Raymond of St. Augustine. They arrived at the city of El quotes of Jerusalem and they laid seeds to Jerusalem. At that time, the commander of the army and drew
Islam was the heart from a Dolan foster Mia, which was also a deviant group. And they made a deal with if the heart Raymond sent a message to FDR. And he told if the heart if you give up the city, we will allow you and your soldiers to leave and safety. Even though I said he says that Raymond's honored his word with if the hop, meaning he left if the hall and his soldiers leave Jerusalem and essentially proceed to Egypt in safety. But the civilians were left in quotes. The civilians were left in Georgia in Jerusalem. And as they left, they surrounded the city. And they killed every single one of the Muslims of that day. And they wrote that our horses ran in the blood of the
infidels up to our knees, the Jews hit in their synagogues, and they set the synagogues on fire. The Christians that belonged to the eastern churches first, they demand it because this included all of the other Christians they demanded from them, that the Holy Cross would be given to them. But those Christians refused. And so what they did was Wait, they took their children, and they bang them by the heads on the walls of the city of Jerusalem until they made them confess where the Holy Cross was being hidden. After they got the Holy Cross. They killed all of the Christians that belong to the eastern churches as well.
They demolished messages.
The messages that moment of no cutoff the spot where I'm going to be allowed to I'm Whoa, prayed in when he first arrived in Jerusalem, and they put a cross on top of it, the luck saw and declared mezze, the luck saw a church.
This is in the year 1098.
And in fact, vanilla, we even find that she rock. He actually took 7000 skulls of Muslims and he made a mountain of skulls what was known as a mountain of skulls, the skulls of the Muslims of that time.
The year 1098 mesial UCLA has fallen and there is no more salaah and Mazel oxa no more than in Mazel oxa less than 100 years after the after the Kava was received and no one made Hajj that year.
nurudeen as anything about him a whole lot to Allah, the teacher of Salahuddin Rahim Allah sees a dream. And in this dream, he sees the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looks disturbed, and also Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he points to two men. And he says to Nora Dean, save me from these two dogs.
So nurudeen immediately sets out for Medina. And he was leaving from a sham and he was the commander of the army of that at that time.
And as he sets out for Medina, there were two men that were sent by Raymond, from the Crusaders that posed a students of knowledge from a Muslim from Morocco. And when they arrived in the city of Medina, they pretended to be students of knowledge and they pretended to seek knowledge from the alien out of that time.
And they took up residence close by the messages of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they started to dig a tunnel to the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Raymond's had a plan of Augustine Raman had a plan that the body of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be confiscated, brought back to Jerusalem, and placed on a stick so that everyone could see the body of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam desecrated Can you imagine on the law, what these people were going through and that the evilness of that plot.
And so every day these two men they dug deeper and deeper and deeper.
And when nurudeen arrived,
they were this close and nurudeen here, he made an announcement. He said that I'm distributing gifts and charity from our gains in a sham because he wanted to see these two men and he knew that he would recognize them. So everyone in the city of Medina came out except for those two months. And he asked them, he said, Are there are there any men that are missing from those that have come out today?
And they said to nurudeen, they said that there are two students of knowledge. And when we informed them about your offer, they said, We are so hot, we are ascetics were in No need of money, so that they could continue their evil plot and not be exposed. And nurudeen. He said, Take me to those two men. And he saw those two men, and those two men were executed. And there was demand, there was a barrier that was placed in front of the grave of the Prophet slicin. I'm underground so that no one would ever be able to take the body of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam again,
your brothers and sisters within this 100 years must do that.
did not have
a comma or Salah within it for a 93 years.
Can you imagine? for 93 years no one prayed in Mazel oxen.
If you lived in this day and age, if you lived at that time, wouldn't you say to yourself that Yeoman kiama must be around the corner that we're done with that there is no hope anymore, that we shouldn't even try anymore. On top of that, you didn't have one group claiming to be philosopher, acknowledge Josie Rahim Allah Allah says that you had multiple philosophers, multiple people all claiming to be halifa. The Muslims were confused, they were in complete disarray, and they didn't know who to give baotou
people were confused. The Muslims were disunited. And in that era, as a sort of muscle alive, it was seldom set. within every 100 years, Allah subhanho wa Taala sends a message that he sends a revival. That is the era that salata de la UB Rahim Allah tala was born into and he did not have interest in the Arab world because he was an Arab. In fact, he wasn't even an Arab he was Kurdish
and his mother may Allah have mercy on her. She had a dream before a Salafi Deen was born. And she said that I saw a sword in my stomach
and Salahuddin was born raised by nurudeen Rahim Allah to Allah and Salahuddin understood that Jerusalem would not come tomorrow. He understood that he couldn't react emotionally. Instead of plunging into alkaloids. He united the Muslim world. He started to write letters to the Muslims. He started to drop leaflets all over the Muslim world, reminding them of their duty to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He held weekly classes in Egypt in Al Qaeda. In fact, he changed their mind back to the sinner, he brought them back to the sooner then when he gained the hearts of the Muslim world, he formed his army.
And he proceeded to fight back against the Crusaders.
And one by one, he took city by city,
winning the hearts not only ever the Muslims, but of the non Muslims as well because he did not resort to their evil tactics to their dirty tactics. As he brought cities back under Islam, he spared the women and the children. he spared the innocence. And in some cases, he even spared some of the aggressors to send a message to the entire world, that we are not like them.
Even said that Rahim Allah to Allah.
He says that the weight of the passion that Salahuddin had for anklets was so strong in his heart, that if it was to be taken from his heart and placed upon mountains, it would have flattened them all. Every day he talked about quotes every day he talked about Jerusalem and the Muslims thoughts of themselves. Look at us. Look at our situation. How are you talking about inputs? We have problems in Egypt. We have problems in Syria. The prophets lie Selim, his body was almost stolen. The Hajj was was prevented by this deviant group. What are you talking about Jerusalem? How are we ever going to bring back Jerusalem but every day he spoke about it? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam spoke about a sham. He spoke about inputs, though aside from an Islamic Mirage, the prophet size and I've never entered into inputs, but the prophets lie some love Jerusalem, he loved outputs.
And on the night of September 20 1187,
Salahuddin arrives at the border of Jerusalem a little quotes with his army
and he was on the hills of a clean
and every night Salahuddin would go out and he would see if the lights were on at night.
And if they weren't on for kiama lay, and for Salah when the people would come to him and say, aren't we going for it? Aren't we ready? He would say this is where Allah zema this is where defeat comes from.
And every night he went out and he monitored the people to see if they were praying Fiamma live and when he saw the lights on in the tents, and when he saw an omen that stands before Allah subhanho wa Taala at night praying and beseeching Allah subhanaw taala for victory.
He says this is where victory comes from.
And he enters into Jerusalem on the 27th of Raja on a Friday.
The same night of LS la will watch the night that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the day that the prophet SAW Selim entered into Mecca
on the day of Fatah mecca of the conquest of Mecca,
and he enters in
and instead of subjecting the people to the torture, and the oppression that they subjected the Muslims to, he shows them the mercy. There is the dignity of Islam. He enters into Jerusalem, the way
the law Tyler entered into Jerusalem 500 years before him without a drop of blood being shot. You know, a few weeks ago, there was a commentator who said that if the if the Israelis put down their weapons, the Jews will no longer exist in Philistine or in Israel, they will cease to exist.
Whereas if the Arabs put down their weapons, they will live in peace. What a lie. What a lie against Muslims, what a lie against this religion. When we entered into a porch, we did not shed innocent blood. And tapana law historians they say that the women, whenever Salafi been entered into the city, the women shave their heads and they started to cut their faces up. And they threw their children into the Red Sea, because they were afraid of what would happen to their children. And the women mutilated themselves because they were afraid of what the army would do to them. Because they thought that we are like them.
They thought that we would resort to the tactics that were used against us. But we're not like them.
That's panela the victory that day for Islam was not just the victory of a group that was oppressed over their oppressor. It wasn't just the victory of the army of Muslims against the army of the Christians. It was the victory of mercy over mercy over oppression and transgression and
compassion, excellence over evil. And I want you to think about this dear brothers and sisters. A lot of times people come to me and, and all of the different Messiah and they look around, they look around the world and they see the helplessness and they see the hopelessness of the world. And they say, shouldn't we be doing to them what they do to us. The motto of the terrorists around the world is that they kill our women and children, we should kill their women and children, what they do to us we should do to them. The ends justify the means. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't teach us that message in and of itself is flawed. It shows flawed, arcada flawed creed,
because Allah Subhana which never gives you permission to resort to unethical ways of jihad, because of the situation of the oma Salahuddin did not take one innocent life in that desperate situation. The Muslims did not become helpless, they did not become hopeless. They did not become unethical because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam never became unethical, not even on the day of when he lost his uncle Hamza or the Allahu taala animal. Even on that day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was outraged when he saw a woman from the other side that was killed in the battlefield unjustly. Why? Because our message is a message of hope. We know that victory comes from Allah
subhanho wa Taala. We know that the help of Allah Subhana Allah comes to us whenever we are right with a loss of Anahata Allah, we don't need to resort to those tactics. We know that when we do our part. And when we stand up at night beseeching Allah azza wa jal and calling upon him
and when we do away with the sins that bring upon hardship to the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam victory is near, victory is near. Because there were times in the past where the woman was in a far worse situation. And the list goes on and on, the touch off the Mongols and the havoc that they wreaked upon Iraq and Syria,
the Crusaders, all of these situations, dear brothers and sisters in the past, and Allah subhanho wa Taala brought this home out of its darkness, and Allah subhanho to Allah, upon the backs of a few individuals, a few people reestablished the aroma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because this ummah, though at times it sleeps, it never dies. It never dies, and will lie every time I go around the world every time I go to a different country, whether it's a Muslim or non Muslim country, and I see the people gathering to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala concerned for the affairs of the Ummah I become more optimistic. I can see Shabaab, youth, young people all over the
world that are excited about their
Religion there is a worldwide Islamic awakening of people, young people who now love Allah subhanaw taala love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who are far more religious and practicing than their parents. We see it all over the world. And you might think to yourself, Well, look what happened in Egypt. You know, look what happened in Gaza. Look what happens all over the world. And what I say to you is that through this process, Allah subhanho wa Taala is sorting out people. This is what a lot of calls in the Quran a Tim Hayes, he sorts out the filth from the goals. He sorts out the rulers he sorts out there and he sorts out the people a loss of Hannah hoods Allah shows the
integrity of people. The people that love Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that care more about the oma of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam than their pockets and their selves and their families that love this Deen and that are willing to do anything for the sake of Allah subhanho to Allah and remain ethical and principled in establishing that which Allah Subhana which Allah promised would be established on this earth. Allah azzawajal is lining them up. Allah subhanho wa Taala is sorting us out. Allah subhanaw taala is seeing who amongst us will act who amongst us will continue to prepare? Because a newsflash the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala is
near dear brothers and sisters and also de la sala La Jolla sallam. He says men Kala helican us for who lack a home. And another narration he says For who Alico, whoever says that the people are helpless. Whoever says that the oma is done with whoever says that you know what, there's no hope anymore. He is the most helpless of them. And he's the one that's rendering everyone else a pessimist. He's making everyone else the pessimists. He's the one saying everyone else. Why are you organizing conventions? Why are you gathering in your massages? Why are you doing these things? Why are you out there demonstrating and protesting you're not going to make a change these silly
boycotts of yours they're not going to make a change. This pm will lead in the so called keynote and prayer of yours. You think that's gonna make a change? All of this stuff? You think it's gonna you think he can stand up to the evil powers of the world will lie it can?
Well lie it can. We've already seen it. The brothers and sisters while many of us were too lazy to boycott Israeli products of that Zionist regime. The BDS boycott movement costed that Zionist regime $8.1 billion
that's two times the aid That's double the aid that comes from the United States government. Your boycott matters, your protest in the street, you're demonstrating in solidarity with your brothers and sisters. It matters because the prophets lie Selim says in the Arab woman, jihad, Kelly motto Hopper, endosulfan and, john,
that the most that the greatest struggle is a word of truth spoken in the face of an oppressor that had if necessary necessitates that you are not in a state of authority. You are not in power, but you know what you will speak up you will say not in our name, not on our watch. We will not sit quietly while our brothers and sisters are being massacred. We will continue to raise our voices, we will continue to use the social media platform we will continue to spread awareness we will continue to boycott we will continue to do away with the sins in the lights are out. And that's my first topic for tomorrow, by the way, is a personal awakening equals an awakening in the law. You know,
maybe Coleman hotter your age or maybe I'm forcing him that Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change the condition of themselves. We will continue to make your app we will continue to stand up and will continue to have hope because Allah subhanho wa Taala will never let this oma be disgraced. This oma is a great honor. This has survived the greatest tests of time, this oma has survived shale clean greater than Netanyahu and CCN versa. It has survived people greater than all of them. And you know, some kind of luck. I want to share with you all the story because I know that I'm over time now. I'm way over time learner.

And he was put in prison over and over and over again and beaten over and over and over again, because he would stand up there on the member every single Friday. And not only when he called them out for their oppression. He would call out the government for their
Economic injustices, he would call them out on the price of meat in Egypt. He was a grassroots email. He was with the people. And every single Friday, he got up there and he called them out. And sometimes they'd be waiting for him. As soon as he finished his cookbook, they throw them in prison again. And he used to say 100 illa. I'm blind so that I can't see the face of my oppressors.

He said that if you send or rather he made an offer at that time, to Sadat, to send the body of Jamal Abdi Nasir to Libya, where he would build a statue, build a tomb. And he said, the people will come and make pull off around the grave of demand of the NASA and he offered the Egyptian Government $500 million for the body of German of the Nasir so that people could come make pull off around his grave in Libya.
And chef Kish Rahim, Allah to Allah he responded to him.
And he said, Oh, qaddafi, I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala
that you die a humiliated death, a death of humiliation, and that your people throw you that your people pull you out from McGarity from the sewers. And they throw you in an undisclosed location will lie he made that there and I asked a lot that your people will pull you out from the gutters from the sewers and throw you into an undisclosed location. And that came true, didn't it?
And this man, Rahim Allah to Allah never once, never once gave up hope. Never one stop preaching. Never one stop calling to the Huck and you know Subhana Allah, he sees a dream of himself. On December 6, the night before December 6 1996. He sees a dream of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

And on the morning of December six, he woke up and he asked his son, how old was the Prophet slicin um, when he died, his son said 63 years old. He said I just turned 63 years old.
And he gathers his family before salata Juma and they're eating breakfast together. And he tells his family before you serve breakfast, which is the custom in the Middle East that people get together before Juma said before you serve breakfast, I want to tell you all of a dream I had last night
and he tells them this dream. And everyone is speechless and starts to cry. And his wife says to him, why did you share this dream with us?
To dream of death? Why are you sharing this dream?
And chef kiss call him Allah to Allah He responds and he says, well, Allah He I wish that things would happen exactly as I saw in my dream.

No, no, they don't want to hear that voice. The cars Chambal from the voice of this man Rahim Allah to Allah.

Your brothers and sisters Why do I share this with you? The days of the glory of Islam are not gone. And the prophets licenses frequently acronym and Amati sabby phone as long as this exists, there will always be people that are foremost that or there will always be people that are ahead of the rest of the oma that are working for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala
see beyond the idleness of this world that see beyond the purposelessness of this world, and belong to something special, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promised that that will continue to exist. And I'll leave you with a little bit of hope.
If your Isa Allah His Salaam was to come, and emammal be happy Rahim Allah to Allah. He says that Isa alayhis salam is the greatest Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Why? Because he meets the conditions of a Sahabi he was alive when he met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he believed in the prophets lie Selim, he never died. And when also la slice on a metal on the night of an Islamic Mirage, he was alive and he believed in the prophets lie Selim. Therefore Isa Allah His Salaam is from the Sahaba
and so here's the silver lining if you're a Saudi Salaam descends in our lifetime, if we meet him, and we follow Him, we will all be tabulating inshallah, to Allah. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to bless us and to make us amongst those that always work and that continue to plant the seeds of hope. And we ask Allah Subhana hearts Allah to bring victory to this religion on our backs and to forgive us for our shortcomings and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to purify us of the sins that hold this oma back and I asked forgiveness from the other massage and from all of you for going over time. does not come a lot of hate on was Santa Monica when I come to LA when it comes
