seminary ministry Tanaji mizunara manmohini hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen whatever one Ilana line Amin, well are people too much akin Allahumma salli wa sallam about a karate karate can Mohammed and sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. While early he was abusing them to see him and kathira.
The brothers and sisters, as we are gathered, obviously Subhanallah I think that the response in the masjid here shows what's been on our hearts and our minds are brothers and sisters, and philistin, our brothers and sisters, and
the fact that this message, it looks like Ramadan, I think is a sign of how much this has occupied the hearts and minds. And I actually want to start off with saying that that is in and of itself, a sign of email and a sign of faith. A sign of faith is that you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. When you see your brothers and sisters and Philistine that are suffering in the way that they are suffering,
then it is a sign of Eman that you care enough to exert yourself and
that you follow that you ask yourself a million times a day. What can we do for our brothers and sisters and Philistine.
And this has not been an ordinary time, I think all of us can recognize that this time feels very different. That it feels
Subhanallah like there's there's something that is happening that we're not accustomed to, it's not the usual unfortunately, we've become used to the usual and the usual has been a few 100 people killed. And then the world moves on until the next time that Israel decides to pound Reza once again, to agitate in the UK. So once again and then the world moves on. But I wanted to frame this from a spiritual perspective with Maliki to Allah before we make sure before we talk specifically about Philistine know Allah subhana, Allah to Allah gives very specific instructions to how we should behave in victory, and how we should behave in quote, unquote defeat, understanding that
there is no such thing as true defeat when we are connected to Allah subhanaw taala. And there is no such thing as victory. If that victory comes at the expense of your obligations to Allah subhanaw taala. But there are behaviors, there are attitudes, there are things that are attached to each of those circumstances. And basically what it boils down to is that you are to be humble in victory. You are to be hopeful and defeat, humble and victory, hopeful and defeat and connected to Allah subhanaw taala throughout all of that time. So I was thinking about Subhanallah what is being said to the believer as they pass away, we've had a lot of people pass away at this very moment right now
people are dying.
People are dying, and we can assume that the angels are saying to them, what Allah subhanaw taala said, is said to them at the time of their death in Alladhina Kalu Rabona Allahu footmaster Pom Turner's Zolani Mana Mana Inca to Allah to Hafele wala tatsuno Whatever she will will Jannetty Lottie quantum to I don't, that rarely those who say we believe, and then they were firm, Tennyson or any human manner incur the angels descend upon them at the time of their departure. And say, Do not be afraid Allah to Hafele one at a time.
Do not be afraid and do not grief whatever she will will Jannetty Lottie continue to idle and glad tidings for the paradise that awaits you.
Subhanallah what we find from that area that has spoken to the righteous person as they're passing away, may Allah subhanaw taala allow all of our martyred ones all of our dying wants to be received with this and may Allah azza wa jal allow us to be received with this. Allah to Hafele don't worry about that which comes after death. Don't be afraid not to have what comes next. is not going to be what you are accustomed to. All the horror all the trauma all of the hardship of this world is now gone. You are now returning to your Lord Subhana junta Anna and you're returning to his promise you're returning to his comfort. Hola to Hafele don't be afraid Well, atta has no and don't grieve
over the past whatever she will be agenda to let it continue to I don't hear is the paradise you've been promised.
As we watch
our brothers and sisters pull their children out of the rubble pulled their loved ones out of the rubble.
I want you to remember for a moment that what is said to them Nila Heaton as they left this world is just that.
Don't be afraid.
You went to sleep last night without electricity.
You went to
sleepless night worrying about water. You went to sleep last night worrying about fuel. Don't be afraid not to hustle. What comes next is no longer versus what comes next is no longer occupation. You don't need to be afraid anymore. You're returning to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to a garden that is only occupied by the righteous, to harmful, one at a time
and don't grieve anymore over that which you've left behind. You are now taking care of
Subhanallah that messaging to the dead, is meant to also serve as a comfort to the living.
That when we see so many of our brothers and sisters pass away, that we remind ourselves that they're okay, that they're taken care of. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah comforted the believers with the Ayat of Shahada.
What attacks have been the Ladino Cuttino visa vie de la he Amata Bella here on Enderby Musa Korn Ferry Hina Bhima Tamela hum and finally, we establish your own a villa Lena la mia hecho, BM and
Allah subhanaw taala says that,
you know, those people that you have sent before you
don't say that they're dead, they're alive. They are with their Lord, now. They are being taken care of now.
And they are happy Fetty Hanaa they are happy with what Allah Subhana Allah has given to them. Their brothers and sisters, if we don't have that belief in ourselves, then we're going to suffer. We have that belief firmly in our hearts that when show had that leave, they leave to a better place. And Allah revealed those verses to comfort. the loved ones of the martyrs have to let them know your loved ones are okay.
Your loved ones are now taking care of. So what is said to them hola to Hafele Do not be afraid. Well, our attack is on and do not grieve. Now Subhanallah there is a messaging that Allah azza wa jal gives to the people of a herd
that survived and the people that passed away the people that survived and that had to move on after a herd required a different type of messaging. And the messaging to them was Well, I'll tell you, Walter has no
so I want you to just pay attention to this that to the one that is dying to the one that actually left this world and that's a half of what it says no, don't be afraid and do not grieve. Don't be afraid and do not grieve. But to the one that is alive. Well, tahini Wallah has no the root word here or the the messaging stays the same of huizen of grief. Don't grieve. Now we are human beings, Allah taught us to have hearts. The Prophet sign Salam said, Whoever does not have mercy will not have mercy shown to them. If your heart doesn't break, then there's something wrong with your heart. What can I do with a man who has no mercy in his heart, but do not grieve to a point that it shuts
you off that it shuts you down?
But the word Wella Torino is different from Allah to half. See, those that have left this world are given that message of you're going to be okay now, you don't need to fear anything that comes next. But those that have to continue forward, are told Wella tahina, walla
walla Torino, Torino means don't lose steam, it means don't lose heart, it means Don't falter, it means don't break down, you still have to go forward. Don't stop, don't stop.
What data is no. And do not let your grief overwhelm you to where you are shut down while attacking you want to know. Don't stop. Don't lose heart.
Don't quit this fight. Don't quit the struggle. And you can imagine, and this is what we've been talking about every Tuesday night. And this makes it feel very real right now, even to us from far away as we're watching these images and they're debilitating.
But this makes it all that more real Imagine walking around Medina and you survived a herd and you buried everyone that you loved.
And the army that killed the Muslims that day. They did Tim feel they they mutilated the bodies and made examples out of them. And you buried your loved ones and you saw them in pieces and you saw them cut up into all different types of figures.
All types of disfigurement and now you have to walk and you have to figure out what you do next. Well, that's how he No,
no, you're not allowed to quit. Don't sock. Don't give this up. Don't lose heart. What data has no one to will Atlona in Quinto mini
when you are the exalted soul
long as you remain believers, you are the victorious party, you are on the higher ground. So long as you remain believers so long as you did not lose your Eman so long as you maintain your faith, you have not lost
in victory. In the worldly sense if you lose your faith you have lost in defeat, if you maintained your faith, you have won. And subhanAllah I was looking into. Ironically, when the prophets I seldom received this is specifically what intimal aerelon even above so the Allahu Taala and Homer says that when the Muslims were in a herd, and Harley didn't worry about the Allahu Taala and who we've been talking about, wanted to send a message to the Muslims of dominance and he was on the other side. So he wanted to occupy the higher position and look down on the Muslims in the valley.
And the prophets lie some looked up at harlot at that time, who was a mushrik and the Prophet slicin and made the following day. He said, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah. Allah Allah Allah Quwata illa Illa
Allah humma Lisa Yara muda can be heard the hill belt that Iroha hula in
Allah Who malaria and owner Elena Oh Allah do not let them be dominant over us do not give them the higher position over us. Allahumma La Quwata Lana Illa Big O Allah we have no power except in that which we find a new hola hola Malay say I would okay we had the hill delta t 00. Allah no one worships you on this earth except for this group of people.
Subhan Allah the same messaging that the prophets like Selim had embedded, Oh Allah, if this group of people is defeated, you will not be worshipped on this earth. I want you to think about the person who is dying. And I want you to think about the person who watches people die. And if your heart breaks for Gaza, if your heart breaks with every single father that you see pull out a child from under the rubble that is absent from Western media that your president of the United States failed to even mention one time today in his speech, that your corporations and your companies and your whatever it is that you're associated with are posting obnoxiously. I stand with Israel, which
is a blank check for genocide, completely ignoring the cruelty that has been inflicted on our people. If your heart breaks every time you see that that's a sign of Eman.
But Allah Azza justice Willa Torino,
wala has no one Simona Ilona and Quinton, what many do not falter. What I want to say Dear brothers and sisters on a spiritual level, first and foremost, that tahina, you know, our brothers and sisters have suffered a lot.
And they've been suffering for a long time. They have been under the cruelty of this occupation for decades now.
completely ignored, but not by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.
And while there casualties are not noted here, and while it might seem like they're being cast aside, I want you to recognize that the people that are under the rubble and the people that are being buried in these bombs are a crumble. Earth are the most noble people on earth in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala right now.
We don't need anyone to validate our narrative. We don't need anyone to honor our loved ones. We don't need anyone to honor our debt, we have to ask ourselves, where are we in all of this, and they persevere. They keep going. They refuse to stop existing. They refuse to give up on an axon. They refuse to give up
on their righteous cause. They refuse to go away, the Palestinian people absolutely refuse. Now, here's something that I want to put back to you. Every moment that you
speak up, it might cost you your job. It might cost you something at work, it might cost you this and it might cost you that it might cost us collectively some sort of political currency, it might cost us all sorts of different things. But this is for the sake of Allah subhana hazzan. And so you have to be willing to use whatever voice you have right now, as this public narrative is entirely dominated by this occupational machine. It's important for you to use everything that you have to bring forth the cause of Philistine that has been ignored, and not let anybody puts you on the backfoot do not let anybody make you out to be a vicious monster. We're not a people who have
justified the killing of babies
and all the other stuff that is put on us. We're a people that have been saying for decades and years, where are you? When apartheid takes place when occupation takes place on a daily basis, and you say absolutely nothing about these people, you say absolutely nothing about these children, it's going to get more difficult in the days to come. Allah knows best what's left. And I want to remind myself and remind all of you that, till Kela Yamanaka, we don't have been announced last minute I says, There are days of victory days of defeat, it goes and it goes here and it goes there. But Allah Subhana Allah promises without kiba to Mateen victories for the God conscious, you know,
oppressors get drunk and intoxicated, by their seeming support and the structures of oppression that they have. They support one another, they egg one another on and they look around and they say, I've got this and I've got that and I feel a sense of safety. I feel like I can get away with this. And Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhana, Allah, Allah gives them the sense of intoxication with their impression with their oppression, until Allah subhanaw taala takes them until Allah subhanaw taala seizes them, and He does not let them go. Use everything that's at your disposal
to raise the plight of the people of Palestine, if anything that these last few years have shown us is that there is no acceptable way that's been given to us to raise the cause of our brothers and sisters, you boycotts, then you're in trouble, you say something, you're in trouble. You're no longer allowed to advocate for the Palestinian people and their dignity without some sort of punitive measure. So be it.
So be it, they're losing their lives. We can take the stand collectively as a community and shout Latina. And so whatever protest is available to us, whatever donations are available to us, you know, whatever, whatever Allah is those that gives us have the opportunity to support our brothers and sisters right now. When all the odds are stacked against them. We have to utilize that and shut down and we have to make sure that we're with them. And that we heed when our turkey no one else has no animal, Ilona and Quinton, what mean, we're sick of seeing the videos of children being pulled out the rubble. Trust me, they're sick of being in those videos. They're sick of pulling their
children out of the rubble. They're sick of the oppression.
But in sha Allah, Allah, we know well how to go to the Supreme. That victory is for the God conscious. And so, lastly, a do a dura dura. dura. Your dura
is the greatest tool that is at your disposal. I know it doesn't feel like that sometimes. But you need to understand that there is not a single day that you make in vain. You're doing it in your sujood you're doing it in your Witter. You're doing it in your opponents and every single Salah you're doing it in your Pm, every single moment that you exert yourself Indira is not a wasted moments. Allah Subhana Allah Allah has promised us victory Allah subhanaw taala has promised us that Al Aqsa will be free. We know this in sha Allah to Allah. But exert yourself Indira and so tonight in sha Allah to Allah, we will make a dua for our brothers and sisters in Uppsala. Make a draft for
our brothers and sisters and follow steam but if this is the only day that you're making for your brothers and sisters, that's a problem.
I know that many of us look for someone else to make your art for us. whatever language you have, whatever your heart pushes you to just wake up and pray. Just push yourself in your schedule and make your art in a way that you know how to make. So inshallah to Allah we will make a short duet for our brothers and sisters and Philistine. And I remind all of you in sha Allah to Allah to please, when you see opportunities to donate through legitimate organizations donate in sha Allah to Allah we will have those types of efforts here in sha Allah Tada. When you have an opportunity to raise your voice, raise your voice, do not be afraid of the consequences of raising your voice and
insisting that the suffering of the Palestinian people which is absent from Western media is not absent from your hearts and not absent from your tongues, not absent from your thoughts. Push back wherever you are. And whatever courses of action that we have in sha Allah to Allah we take and we insist on a dua
Inshallah, to Allah we will make you out for a few minutes but in the light to Allah and then I ask all of you to please keep them in your DUA on an individual basis as well.
