Allah, Allah Allah Allah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa ala Hill hunt. We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as we declare his oneness, and glorify Him and declare his perfection, we thank him for this ability to gather together and

00:00:56--> 00:01:40

perform an act of worship only for him. And we bear witness that Muhammad SAW Allah honey who was sundown, is his final messenger and we thank Allah for sending us a mercy to the world's a guide a teacher, someone who loved us more than we love ourselves, even though he never met a Silla honey who was seldom. And we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for reviving the way of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, our Prophet Abraham peace be upon him who stood in that barren desert, wondering if there would be a people that would uphold the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala as he was praying for and here we are, the bay Kala human a beak, even though we are not at the caliber, our hearts our souls are

00:01:40--> 00:02:25

making pull off made me lucky to Allah. And we hope that Allah sees us as the fulfillment of the supplication of Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, and of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah, amin, their brothers and sisters, I was looking through the whole of the sermons of the Prophet salallahu it he was one of them, as he did his hedgetrimmer there. And it was striking to me how similar every single speech the profit slice on gave in those days of hedge was, whether it was the hotbar in alpha, or it was the multiple addresses that he gave to the group sallallahu it he was someone over 140,000 people came from around the world to meet the Prophet slice on them for the first time to do

00:02:25--> 00:03:06

Hajj with him to listen to him. So Lola whiny who was some of them to be counted amongst his companions to perform the Hajj with him, and he keeps reiterating the same theme sallallahu alayhi wasallam and our beloved prophets lie Selim has a few moments to reshape generations of ignorance from various parts of the world, reshaped the way that they view God reshaped the way that they view religion, reshape the way that they view ritual, reshape the way that they view each other. And so he chooses sallallahu wasallam, the right words, and the prophets, I send them calls to their attention, everything that they are seeing around them, and he tries to impart to them some of the

00:03:06--> 00:03:35

law and he was one of them, things that they will remember because the symbols are so overwhelming and so strong, what more central than the character itself, the character which had become a place where people were wrong, which had become a place of God commerce, using idols to take advantage of people's the superiority on the boasting of various tribes, a place of idol worship, a place of everything that was displeasing to Allah subhana wa tada

00:03:36--> 00:04:24

and I want you to think about yourself in front of the camera. And you see the profit slice and I'm making pull off around it. And we're sort of on Salalah honey who is selling themselves now of the other key, how beautiful and pure you are. The first time you see the canvas stunning, how beautiful how pure you are, we're up to re hockey and how beautiful your fragrance is. Na allamakee What are allama photomatic? How great are you and how great is your sanctity? The Kava Baitullah and how long? How incredible is it? How beautiful is it? So far, this all connects and all of us have a connection to the Kava right when we see it. I want you to imagine though, if you saw May Allah

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

subhanho wa Taala protect his holy places Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem and all over if you saw the camera being destroyed if you saw someone spitting out the cat, but if you saw someone tearing its cloth if you saw someone throwing something at it, if you saw the destruction of the cabin in front of you, what would it do to your heart? What would happen to your perception of the world was sort of loss of Allah when he was silent as he's speaking to the camera. He says well, not enough so Mohammed in Salalah honey, he was selling a big lahoma to lachemann amore en de la he formats and minkee Malley. He with me he

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

When a wannabe Illa Pharaoh, I swear by the one in whose hands is my soul, the sanctity of the believer is more precious, more sacred in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada than you. his wealth, his life, his honor, and that we assume of him anything but good.

00:05:23--> 00:06:08

The believer is more precious to Allah than you are Subhana Allah, we have become desensitized to seeing our brothers and sisters hurt around the world and hurting other brothers and sisters in our own communities. That if we were just to envision that every time I'm about to do something that will take away from my brother or my sisters honor their life, their property, or Sue oven to assume evil of them, if we were to put ourselves in the position of us banging on the camera, and how we would see ourselves in that moment. Yes, your WhatsApp message is more severe than a person hitting the Kappa. Yes, your word about your brother and sister is more severe than a person who spits

00:06:08--> 00:06:51

towards the sacred sites of Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is a major and grievious sin that's not to belittle that, that is to dawn upon us. How sacred we are to each other. The prophets lie some of them also says, what year or what month are we in? They say Allah says Allah, it's the headjam the prophets lie some of them says au shafran TELEMUNDO thermoformer. What month Do you know? That is more sacred in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala than this month? They're standing around the camera. And what ballot what place are we in? They don't want to answer because they don't know. A prophet sly, some says isn't this Mecca? And he says, Are you better than talamona who are more

00:06:51--> 00:06:58

firmer? What place do you know more holy, more sacred than this place? He says what day are we in?

00:06:59--> 00:07:07

They say you had a sort of luck you know we you know best the prophets lie some says this is this not the day of the sacrifice? Are you Yeoman talamona who

00:07:08--> 00:07:50

what day Do you know that is more sacred than this day in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada for in Allah tala Kota Allah but Hello Maria come Dima como en La La quwata illa be happy haka Hurmati, yummy caminhada de Bella de comida, fi Shahada, Allah Hello, beloved prophets lie some says, I'm telling you that Allah has made Your Honor, your blood, your wealth, your property more sacred to one another than everything that I just mentioned to you everything that you see around you the entire atmosphere, and 100 Beloved, he's asking, did you get what I said? Have I delivered the message to you? And they said, Yes, he also lie. He said, Wait, how come? This is his sermon way?

00:07:50--> 00:08:30

hakam woe to you lithology una bella de Kufa. yeldon he will back up on the table but don't go back to being disbelievers striking at each other's necks. Don't go back to being kuffar attacking one another, striking each other's necks. All of you that are sitting around that have never met one another. Don't go back to that lifestyle. That's not who we are. That's not what Allah subhana wa tada has given to us. And the Prophet slicin was stressing murder. Why? Because these people would let their disputes get to the point of killing each other silly things. Suddenly faith goes out the window. He said some Allah hardy he was sent an eye for nasty email. The people that are supposed to

00:08:30--> 00:09:12

be the most restrains with their hands in hurting or killing are people of faith people who claimed to have a man, he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Many of them are in the lawman zawada Jr, Allahu Akbar. He said that the murder of a believer is worse than the sight of Allah than the entire extinction of the world. We're not just talking about the caribou. We're not just talking about Medina. We're not just talking about an Oxfam Allah liberated. We're talking about the entire world. The life of one believer is more precious to Allah subhana wa Tada, then the entire world. And verily, someone who kills one is like one who kills all of mankind and whoever saves one is like one

00:09:12--> 00:09:41

who saved all of mankind. This is our Prophet sallallahu it was Sunday. Now you might think to yourself, well, I've never killed anyone so I'm good at him that into May Allah subhana wa tada restrain our hands from ever doing so, from ever unjustly murdering Allah. I mean, most murderers don't know that they're one day going to be such May Allah restrain our hands from doing so. But the prophet sly seldom goes further. He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and hatzalah aha husana 10 for her qsfp Demi.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

It gets a little more complex. When you abandon your brother for a year. We know the sin of abandoning your brother for three days your sister for three days when you boycott your brother or your sister for a year. It's as if you're spilling their blood at that point. You might as well be spilling their blood. That's the grievious of the sin in the sight of Allah.

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

Some kind of hotel. If there are people in here that are not talking to each other, go say Salaam to that person. Go say Salaam to that person. Don't be that person who falls under this category. Subhan Allah He even brings us a la jolla some to the bare minimum.

00:10:14--> 00:10:47

That's a drone, a man in Muslim. That's what he says to them. By the way, do you know what a Muslim is? Of course we know we're all Muslims. We came from around the world we're doing Hajj in the way of our father Ibrahim alayhis salaam, the great Muslim, the one who submits to Allah. No, but do you know who the real Muslim is? Do you know who the real moment is? And Muslim woman study Manasa melissani. He will he will walk me know man I mean, who knows? I didn't even know MIT him. A Muslim is the one who people feel safe from their tongues and from their hands. Your tongue is more lethal than your hand. Sometimes.

00:10:48--> 00:10:54

Your tongue is more more people go to hell because of this than this. Because of what they do with their tongues.

00:10:55--> 00:11:36

A Muslim is the one from whom other people feel Salaam they feel safe from their tongues and from their hands. And a movement. A believer is someone who people feel like they can trust they have security from them with their wealth, and with their blood with their lives. The profit slice on them did not spare a single moment to connect them to something they can always remember the bare minimum of calling yourself a Muslim performing or EADS performing hajj connected to the way you treat everyone. Why? Because when you skew your perception of God, then you skew your perception of self and you skew your perception of the world around you as well. People included they didn't just

00:11:36--> 00:11:59

turn God into stones and idols. They dehumanized everyone else as a result and turned themselves into guts. So when your perception of a lot is messed up, your perception of self is messed up your perception of people around you as Mr. Ben Massoud or the Allahu taala. And he says, We are sitting with the prophets lie Selim and a man started to gossip tobacco bite and the profit slice and I'm sad to him to

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

pick your teeth.

00:12:02--> 00:12:39

You know, when you finish a meal and you got something in your mouth, and you say, Hey, you got some spinach in your teeth. The prophets lie Some said you have something in your teeth pickets. He said the other Scylla What are you talking about? He says in NACA, occulta. LACMA he had it. So here, you just ate the meat of your brother. You just consumed the flesh of your brother. What are your teeth look like? When you finish sitting with people? What do your teeth look like when you finish a conversation? So Pamela, this tongue, this tongue, which is the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala we could remember Allah and elevate ourselves, more people will end up bankrupt on the day of judgment

00:12:39--> 00:13:19

because of this tongue than anything else. Something so irrelevant. so silly. You throw something out there a comment out there about your brother or sister irrelevance context history a slick comments, that person is this and that person is that and you let it run and run and run and run. And it but not a whole lotta other says. He says that backbiting is the easiest sin to access and the worst sin when you're standing at the mazon on the day of judgment when you're standing at the scale on the Day of Judgment. Of course, Schick is the greatest but it's talking about Bain and NASS between people. He said backbiting is accessible to someone who is poor and someone who is rich,

00:13:19--> 00:13:54

accessible to someone who is in power and someone who is persecuted. It's accessible to the literate and to the illiterate. Everyone talks. The young, the old people talk about other people, especially when you have emptiness in yourself. Then all you do is you talk about everybody else. And it doesn't matter what position you are in society. This has become the historical pastime of people to talk about everybody else and talk about other things the young in the old, the rich and the poor, the powerful and the persecuted. And that is the main reason why people will have their good deeds taken away from them on the Day of Judgment. They're later to other they're out of other hedge taken

00:13:54--> 00:14:19

away from them on the Day of Judgment. May Allah protect us. restrain our tongues, restrain our hands from the believers but I am with this dear brothers and sisters. We must move from people feeling secured from us to people feeling supported by us. It's one thing that I can trust you to not hurt me. It's another thing when you will be there for me when I'm being hurt.

00:14:20--> 00:14:36

And I want you to just look around for a moment and realize that every single person in here has a right upon you. And those that you can't see in here your brothers and sisters around the world have rights upon you. And they are more sacred in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada than the cabinet itself which is the center of our evil

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us go from people being secured from you to people feeling supported by you law your blue abdon happy Patel EMA and hazza you heavily nassima you have good enough see him and I'll hire no one will realize the reality of faith until they love for people what they love for themselves have good. Your brother, your sister. You love

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Have, you have good you support them, you are there for them, you show them ehsaan excellence even when it is not expected of you. So do your brothers and sisters. Let's also remember

00:15:10--> 00:15:20

that when we are seeing people around the world, our Muslim brothers and sisters, innocent people, oppressed people around the world, being humiliated on screen.

00:15:22--> 00:16:01

You have to let your heart move. Let your tongue move and do not let your actions move for them. Let your prayers move for them and in your own community, supporting those brothers and sisters that are in need. We are one oma in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala one body whether it is Palestine or Syria, or the Oilers and by the way, if you don't know what this is, this is East Turkistan. The greatest human rights atrocity in the world right now millions of people in concentration camps. And our brothers and sisters from the weavers had their country their independence taken away from them and their dignity taken away from them. But how many of us can even name one thing about them? When

00:16:01--> 00:16:42

we look at our brothers and sisters from the Rohingya, Somalia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, South Africa, France, we were also hot over the cartoons. The bills that Macron is passing are still taking place right now Kashmir, we are Muslims from India to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, even if we forgotten Afghanistan and Iraq, we're still there brothers and sisters, Yemen, the beloved place of the Prophet slice Allah, Sri Lanka, the list goes on and on and on. We are one on so dear brothers and sisters, honor the person that is next to you. Honor the person that is in your house, honor the person that you can't see, but that Allah subhanaw taala has placed great rights upon you in regards

00:16:42--> 00:17:19

to let your hearts be connected to them. Let your tongues only speak good about them and to them and that starts with your family. And then it starts with our community. I asked a lot of parents out to unite our hearts and unite our ranks here and all over the world may Allah subhana wa tada liberate our brothers and sisters in Aqsa and Philistine May Allah subhanaw taala liberate all of our occupied brothers and sisters May Allah free all of our brothers and sisters from captivity. May Allah subhana wa tada uplift our brothers and sisters that are grieving around the world and May Allah subhanaw taala use us for them. May Allah subhana wa tada keep the fitna away from this

00:17:19--> 00:17:54

community and from our Muslim community as a whole May Allah subhana wa tada protect us from the evil of our own cells from the evil of our own tongues from the evil of our own fingers from the evil of our own hands. May Allah subhanaw taala restrain us from listening to the whispers of the shavon and hurting people around this May Allah subhanaw taala not allow us to be amongst those that wrong their families may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to show a son excellence to our families, excellence to everyone that is around us. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah allow us to be gathered with our beloved one son Lola who I knew he was sending them in generative for the dose. May Allah

00:17:54--> 00:18:14
