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

Subhan Allah

00:00:03--> 00:00:18

Allah when asked me Are you gonna say Thanos? He was not a human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen whatever the one Allah Allah Allah Allah mean? Well, the Altivar to limit sapien Allah masa de was sent him about a collab de corte silica Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to see him and Kira.

00:00:21--> 00:00:24

24 hours ago, I was talking to a mother.

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

And I apologize in advance because this is going to start a little dark.

00:00:31--> 00:00:33

But inshallah Tada, we'll get to the light.

00:00:34--> 00:00:37

24 hours ago, I was talking to a Palestinian mother

00:00:38--> 00:00:40

who lost her child in front of her.

00:00:42--> 00:00:44

And I was expecting

00:00:46--> 00:00:48

to hear the devastation in her voice.

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

Instead, she said to me,

00:00:53--> 00:00:55

she Wallahi

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

when my son was killed,

00:00:59--> 00:01:06

I was about to scream. And I heard something inside of me say Cooley in early law, he were in LA Roger

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

Cooley in LA he whenever he Rajaram say to Allah, we belong unto Allah, we return.

00:01:15--> 00:01:23

And she said, I don't know what it was that was saying that inside of me or what I was hearing. But I said in that Allahu alayhi Raji rune.

00:01:25--> 00:01:28

And she said, As for my son, that Hamdulillah,

00:01:29--> 00:01:37

he didn't feel the pain at the time of his death, because he died immediately at the first strike.

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

And she said,

00:01:41--> 00:01:57

Allah who helped leave and be everybody, those words came from her. Allah subhanaw. Taala is truly subtle, with his slaves. how subtle is Allah subhanaw taala with his rights of slaves, Allah Who loves leaf,

00:01:59--> 00:02:13

he's always there Subhana who It's Anna. And the more piety you have, the more you can perceive his power and his presence subhanho wa taala. The less that that piety is there, the more the fog

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

accumulates on the heart, the less you're able to perceive him subhanho wa taala.

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

I'm going to start tonight

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

on the basis of a question

00:02:29--> 00:02:44

that I've heard a few times over the last few months, not from the people of Gaza themselves, not from the people of Palestine themselves, but from the people who are watching the people of Gaza, and from the people who are watching the people of Palestine.

00:02:45--> 00:02:52

There are a few people that have asked the question, Where is Allah subhanaw taala? Where is God and all of this?

00:02:53--> 00:03:03

And they meet it in a very specific way. It's one thing to read about the stories of the past. It's another thing to witness the atrocities of the presence.

00:03:04--> 00:03:11

And to wonder, Where is God? That's the question that they ask, right? Where is Allah subhanaw taala and all of this.

00:03:12--> 00:03:49

And I'm going to actually start from the very end of this world where the layers of this world have been peeled the most. They're intimate say, that of the powerful reflections on the verse nearly Chioma Dean, Master of the Day of Judgment, is that Allah subhanaw taala is mighty could deal with dunya Allah azza wa jal is the Master of the Day of Judgment and he's the master of this dunya as well. Allah subhana Huzzah. Allah is the King of all kings, the master of all realms. Why did Allah subhanaw taala say Maliki on within some of the rhythms that said

00:03:50--> 00:04:02

that that is because on that day, on the Day of Judgment, the milk of Allah subhanaw taala is apparent to everyone and no one will deny it.

00:04:04--> 00:04:26

Because everything has been peeled back, the oppressor and the oppressed, the Muslim and the non Muslim, the believer, the disbeliever, the righteous and the wicked, all of them will acknowledge the Majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala on that day, and so it will be so apparent and that's one of the blessings one of the reflections of Miley Kyo Medina, Master of the Day of Judgment.

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

The closer that you get to the Day of Judgment,

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

the more immediate that connection becomes. I'm not going to start tonight

00:04:38--> 00:04:42

with what we're seeing now. I'm gonna start with what the profit slice and I mentioned

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

of the coming out of George William George,

00:04:48--> 00:04:52

this corrupt group of people that overtake the earth

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

in his last days,

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

and as they come out, and they wreak havoc on every single part of the

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

The Earth except where Allah subhanaw taala has shielded or ISA Alayhis Salam and his rights as followers. If we are alive at that time may Allah make us amongst them Allah Amin were a Saudi Salam and the believing servants our way. And yet Jews and Jews have come to this earth and they are let out and they kill everything that is in sight with absolutely no mercy. And in the intoxication of their arrogance, I want you to think about how we as Muslims think about the where is God question? Where's Allah subhanaw taala in their intoxication with their arrogance and their oppression, when they come out to the earth, and you can imagine the sight of them ripping flesh,

00:05:45--> 00:05:49

tearing everything apart, beating their chests with power.

00:05:50--> 00:06:01

They say to each other cartel man, Phil Arnold, we've already killed everyone on the earth. For lactone Memphis summer. Let's kill everyone in the heavens to

00:06:02--> 00:06:05

see how intoxicated they become with their arrogance.

00:06:07--> 00:06:11

And the prophets lie Selim says in the hadith of Jebel, the Allah Allah I know which is authentic,

00:06:12--> 00:06:28

that they would throw their arrows imagine the sight of the millions and millions and millions of them all throwing their arrows to the sky at the same time, because that's how arrogance and how powerful they think they have become. They throw their arrows to the sky.

00:06:30--> 00:06:35

And Allah subhanaw taala could have simply turned the arrows on them and let the arrows hit them back.

00:06:37--> 00:06:52

Or not can you do home feats will Yanni him Yama, Han Allah azza wa jal increases them in their arrogance for a few moments. Why did the prophets lie? Some say Allah azza wa jal does. Allah causes the arrows to return to them with blood.

00:06:53--> 00:07:07

So that for a moment they can think we succeeded. We've killed everyone on Earth. And now we killed everyone in the heavens to whatever is up there, we killed him or we killed them too. They're all gone.

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

But look at the immediacy of how this interaction with the heavens is happening in those days.

00:07:15--> 00:07:29

The prophets lie Selim said that Allah azza wa jal will then send a parasite, which is a particular parasite that would be in the noses of sheep, and that would kill them. Allah would send that upon them.

00:07:30--> 00:07:44

And it would kill all of them at one time. Little tiny worm that could kill the weakest of animals would kill supposedly the strongest human beings all at one time. They would all be wiped out by

00:07:45--> 00:07:48

an ISA allihies Salam and the believers

00:07:49--> 00:07:57

would son someone else who fears no one but Allah to see what has happened and he would find that all of them have died at one time.

00:07:59--> 00:08:18

And then Allah subhanaw taala look at the immediacy with the heavens. The prophets lie some said Allah azza wa jal would sudden birds with necks like the neck of camels that would pick them up because their rotting corpses would stink the Earth would pick them up and throw them all into a pit.

00:08:20--> 00:08:59

An isa Alayhis Salam would make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala look at the interaction so the little worm killed them. The big birds with camel necks pick them up and threw them away. And then he said he said I'm Jesus peace be upon him would look to the skies. And he would ask Allah subhanaw taala to sundown rain, to clean the earth, from what is left over of them from the stench from the dirt of them. And Allah azza wa jal with sons a rain the immediacy between the very Saudi salaam to the heavens to Allah subhanaw taala in the heavens, response coming from the heavens to the earth.

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

The rain comes down by Allah's permission,

00:09:04--> 00:09:12

and it cleans the earth and it would be Sun to the Earth, a 3g, some erotica, Rudy Baraka tick.

00:09:14--> 00:09:21

Let your fruits come out, and let the baraka let the blessing of the earth be restored.

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

And when that happens,

00:09:24--> 00:09:32

the Earth is wiped clean, and the Earth produces by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala blessing

00:09:33--> 00:09:38

like we have never seen before, fruits that we have never seen before.

00:09:39--> 00:09:52

The immediacy, in those last days, is so felt and perceived, both with the oppressor as well as the righteous, they call Allah azza wa jal responds right away.

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

And then the day of judgment comes,

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned I want you to think

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

About this moments,

00:10:02--> 00:10:06

a day when all of the oppressors and their mouthpieces are silenced.

00:10:07--> 00:10:15

A day, when every single one of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala is unable to speak.

00:10:16--> 00:10:24

And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only one who speaks and says an allelic Anil Malik

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

am a local art.

00:10:28--> 00:10:38

You asked, where's Allah? You asked, where's the protector of you believers? You ask? Where's the eight of you oppressed ones? You asked, Where is God?

00:10:39--> 00:10:59

And allelic and allelic am Maruchan out I am the King, I am the king. Where are the so called kings of the world? Where are the Jumbotron? And then what's the capital? And where are those arrogant people that used to beat their chests, and used to boast and walk the earth proudly? Where are they now and they are nowhere to be found.

00:11:00--> 00:11:13

silenced? I'm going to bring you back to that moment in sha Allah to Allah. In a few minutes, when only Allah azza wa jal speaks and says, I am the king, where are the suppose at Kings

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

and let's go back to the year that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born

00:11:22--> 00:11:34

that year Abraha in Yemen, wanted to turn the attention of the world to a home that he had built for other than Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:11:36--> 00:11:39

And he enters upon Maccha

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

with the intention to destroy the kava we all know the story

00:11:44--> 00:12:02

as he enters upon Maccha with the intention to destroy the Kabah with his army of elephants and with all the power and structures in the world, all the strategies in the world that he could have to destroy the cabinet and turn the attention of the world to his suppose that house

00:12:04--> 00:12:37

as he is on his way, and the words of optimal club, they'll beat you up on me that this home has a lord that will protect it. Allah subhanaw taala sends down the birds and the stones that pelt these people and I'm Tara cave of Allah Abu cambios Harvard field alum yet al Qaeda Humphrey totally out of Sara Lee hempire on Airbnb told me him behave Jonathan minster gene for jalaun gaspin that could Allah subhanaw taala sons upon them an army from the heavens, and Allah protects his house.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

Fast forward a few years later

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

up the loveliness of April the Allahu Taala and who

00:12:46--> 00:13:02

is praying in front of the cab. And before he prays in front of the cab, he has one of the most powerful conversations that a person could have with his mother a small bits of the backyard all the alone time on how to be her

00:13:03--> 00:13:13

and it's a conversation that's full of faith. Absolutely no questioning of the decree of Allah subhanaw taala as a tyrant is to attack him while he's praying in front of the cab.

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

At no point

00:13:17--> 00:13:31

in the conversation between Abdullah Agnes available the Allah who I knew him and his mother a smuggle the Allahu Allah, do you have any type of doubt and Allah subhanaw taala? Or is Allah going to step in and protect us in this moments?

00:13:32--> 00:13:36

When we're about to be killed in front of the Kaaba?

00:13:37--> 00:14:10

At no point? Do you have any doubts? At no point? Are they asking the question? Where's Allah subhanaw taala instead, the conversation is about how to meet Allah subhanaw taala in the most pleasing of ways, I'm belovedness available the Allah Tada and Houma goes into Salah in front of the cab less than 100 years after that incident where there wasn't a Muslim in front of the Kaaba, at the moment that Allah protected it from Abraha Abdullah was obeying the law. I know him I was praying in front of the Kaaba

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

and he is firebombed.

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

The cabin is hit.

00:14:17--> 00:14:23

And I'd loved us available the Allahu Taala and Homer is crucified in front of the cabin.

00:14:26--> 00:14:52

If this is obeyed, and his mother did not have any doubt in Allah subhanaw taala they didn't ask the question Where was ALLAH? Or why isn't Allah protecting us? He had prepared himself for the moments of martyrdom. His mother had prepared him for that moment and even afterwards when she had to come and see his body, at no point was she asking why oh Allah. At no point was she asking where was Allah?

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

But if the earliest deviances if not the earliest deviation in this ummah, a group called the Kataria

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Those who denied the Divine Decree of Allah, they started to cast doubt in some of the onlookers not the ones that were directly affected.

00:15:08--> 00:15:12

Some of those that were looking in but not in

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

and said, Don't you think

00:15:15--> 00:15:18

that if Allah knew this was going to happen, he would have stopped it?

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

Don't you think

00:15:22--> 00:15:28

that a God who decrees in advance would have decreed otherwise? So clearly,

00:15:29--> 00:15:44

the belief in God is not true. The belief in the divine decree is not true. They manipulated the emotions, not of the people directly affected but the people that were directly witnessing to say, see, Allah was not there to protect the cabin that day,

00:15:45--> 00:15:53

or protect our beloved is available the alone time on Houma that day, and unfortunately, the fitna worked on some of the onlookers.

00:15:54--> 00:16:02

Fast forward to probably what is one of the darkest days of history in this ummah, the year 930.

00:16:04--> 00:16:14

A man by the name of Abdullah Al Janabi, who was the from the kilometer the group known as the kilometer and extreme deviant group

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

that turned on the Ummah and tried to destroy everything of Islam, supposedly from within.

00:16:24--> 00:16:34

Put yourself in the position of a Haji that year 930 There were 20,000 Her jugs

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

making pull off around the cab.

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

And imagine a 24 year old kid

00:16:44--> 00:17:11

standing in front of the cab and yelling, I want you to put yourself into love. And you see a 24 year old kid yelling arrogantly in front of the cab. ain a five year old being al haidara to minster Jean, where are those so called birds? Where are the so called stones that are supposed to rain down upon me from the heavens? And Avila Billahi Anna Jakob.

00:17:14--> 00:17:22

I am Allah is in Me and I am an Allah. We are both one in the same. He creates the creation and I end them I killed them.

00:17:23--> 00:17:28

And a 24 year old kid massacres all of the judge that year

00:17:30--> 00:17:46

20,000 martyrs and Hutch if you were there, and you're witnessing this. You're looking for the lightning to strike him right because that's what's supposed to happen. Where's the lightning strike? Where's the bolt that's supposed to knock this arrogant kid down at this moment.

00:17:48--> 00:18:16

Study massacre 20,000. Her judge piled up their bodies in zamzam. There was no hedge for about two decades. He sold the Blackstone thought that he had it all went and built a little tiny structure that none of you have even heard about hopefully. Right and if you did, it's not even important, where he wanted to direct people away from hudge direct people away from the carrabba introduced all sorts of heresies to this ummah

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

and arrogantly pounded his chest.

00:18:22--> 00:18:36

If you were living in that time where there was no hedge, would you see that there was any hope for this moment to be restored? Would you believe that we're the Blackstone has been taken away and the kava itself has been

00:18:37--> 00:19:22

attacked, and all of the people have been killed? Do you believe there is a chance that Allah subhanaw taala will restore this ummah back to its glory? What's going to happen now, and of the wisdoms that are relevant mentioned Subhan Allah that Allah azza wa jal protected the caliber the first time and in this situation he let the man boast is that the fitna comes to the believers who already know and have clarity therefore they should know better, that Allah subhanaw taala is present and that Allah subhanaw taala will exact his plan, but on his timeline, and that is part of the fitna. Whereas before the Prophet slice on begins the mission of Islam, Allah azza wa jal had

00:19:22--> 00:19:33

decreed that Mecca would be the focal points, that there was no clarity at that time. And Allah subhana wa Tada had set the stage for the mission of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:36--> 00:19:40

But if you were living in 935 940,

00:19:41--> 00:19:55

there are people that died sometime in that 20 years. And we're looking and saying, Ya Allah next year, Ya Allah next year, imagine if you were 60 years old and you are going to do Hajj in the year 931 And every year, it's still not there.

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

What's happening here?

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

But Allah subhanaw taala sent a nasty parasite and disease to that 38 year old Abdullah who ironically his name, the father of purity, and killed him.

00:20:12--> 00:20:19

And Allah restored this ummah. And when you go to Hajj now, you don't feel the effect of 930.

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

But if you were a Shaheed that day,

00:20:24--> 00:21:03

and 930 20,000 people and we don't know the name of a single one of them, if you were a murderer that day, immediately when you were killed, you knew that the Promise of Allah was true. The problem was not with those who were killed, that immediately transitioned to their place. And that became souls in the bodies of green birds hanging from the chandeliers of the throne of the Most Merciful, whom ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada affirms his promise to, they know they're already there. The problem is those who are seeing the piles of dead bodies of origin zamzam and the leftovers of the remains of the cat, but what happens? Where was it?

00:21:04--> 00:21:08

But Allah subhana wa Santa carried out his plan.

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

The brothers and sisters, I bring it to the zoo.

00:21:13--> 00:21:20

And I bring it to follow Steen right now. And I want to be very clear, and very explicit. Two things.

00:21:21--> 00:21:23

When you see Benjamin Netanyahu

00:21:25--> 00:22:13

and the Israelis, the Israeli occupation forces and their defense ministers, speak with such pride. Speak with such confidence and arrogance. Think that they can exact all sorts of punishment on the believers with no consequences, using the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala, to try to mock the people of Gaza. And mark the rest of us by extension, know that their end is near. Know that Allah Subhana Allah Allah is giving us a sign that this is the beginning of the end for them. That when you reach that point, where you start to think that you've become immune, and that you can mock the believers with their scripture, and that you can quote your own twisted scriptures and turn the believers into

00:22:13--> 00:23:04

less than animals and think that you can descend your pamphlets of IATA Quran and mark the believers know that Allah subhanaw taala is bringing you to your breaking point. This is a bush that off for us. This is a glad tidings for us. I know it hurts us when we see them. It hurts us when we see them monkeying with the verses of Allah subhanaw taala and thinking they've got there. But if you read history, we've seen this episode before. We've seen these arrogant tyrants before they never remain on their pulpits. They never remain in their place. Not only is this genocide, not going to continue based in line Tana And ended up with a whole bunch of people in Jannah. A whole bunch of people from

00:23:04--> 00:23:09

Huzur and Jana, can you imagine the size of Krita versus in Jana?

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

Not only is it gonna end up with a whole bunch of Shahadat and Jana,

00:23:15--> 00:23:23

and a whole bunch of renewed people, renewed Muslims and peoples whose eyes are opening up to Islam.

00:23:24--> 00:23:28

But it will end up with the humiliation of those who seek to humiliates.

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

And when you start to ask,

00:23:32--> 00:23:42

Where's Allah subhanaw taala and all of this, the very first time that Allah Subhana Allah mentions a saw between the patients in the Quran when you're reading and sorted Bukhara

00:23:43--> 00:24:09

in Allah hamara slobbery, Allah is with the patients. What bestiaries Sabreen is the next time that you come across the verse about a Sabreen the patients were bested a sobbing, give glad tidings to the patient before Allah Subhana Allah says Allah in the nostril Allah Hikari that the victory of Allah is close. Allah Subhana Allah says we're either like everybody I need for any curry.

00:24:10--> 00:24:20

When my servant asks you O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concerning me, I am close. Before we get to the specifics of the ending of the episodes,

00:24:21--> 00:24:25

we get to the specifics of what moves the characters.

00:24:26--> 00:24:36

What moves the people themselves, because what is in the people of Gaza is nothing short of majestic. And I want to be extremely clear here.

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

You've seen the videos of the people of Gaza.

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

How many times are they asking? Where is Allah?

00:24:45--> 00:25:00

How many times are they questioning ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. It's one of the least places that you will see that you'll see apostasy, one of the least places that you'll see people questioning Allah subhanaw taala in his wisdom, despite being subjected to the worst

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

of cruelty, you have more people living in the comfort of their homes in some of the most developed cities in Europe that are questioning God's existence and questioning God's wisdom than people who are being subjected to the worst of human cruelty. Why do you think that is?

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

Do you think they're deluded? Or do you think they have something

00:25:20--> 00:25:23

that if you don't have it, you don't understand it?

00:25:26--> 00:25:44

Because if the if the Moloch know Ali Mameluke mana Hanafy him in Asana, if the kings of the world knew what we have in our chests of happiness lagenda doing our best to you if they would fight us with source to try to get it out of us. If they could get that ingredients and put it inside of them, they would.

00:25:45--> 00:25:50

And that's why Dear Brothers and Sisters, you put the child with a stone,

00:25:51--> 00:26:16

who slippers are torn up and falling apart and who barely has any food in his stomach. You put that child with a stone standing in front of an Israeli soldier with the most sophisticated military artillery in the world with the biggest tank in the world. I'm putting it on the kid every single time I believe in that child because that child has an ingredients that that soldier doesn't even know exists.

00:26:17--> 00:26:20

Allah subhanaw taala has given them something.

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

Now here's the other side of that.

00:26:24--> 00:26:29

The people of huzzah are not asking where is Allah? But they are asking where are you?

00:26:31--> 00:26:43

They are asking where are the rulers of the Muslims? They are asking where is the so called ummah of 2 billion people? They are asking where's this political and military and economic strength that you supposedly have?

00:26:45--> 00:27:05

They are asking where are these people that supposedly love most of the lochsa and not follow a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose first Qibla was much better than Aqsa and who was taken from Mecca to an axon to lead the prophets and prayers. And Allah subhana wa Tada sanctified that place. They're asking where you are, they're not asking where Allah is.

00:27:06--> 00:27:41

They're asking where the leaders are. They're not asking where the creator is. They understand that Allah subhana which Allah has tested them in a mighty moment, and they have a direct connection with Allah subhanaw taala. They perceive Allah under the airstrikes, they perceive Allah through the hunger they perceive Allah through the tears as they bury their loved ones, they perceive Allah subhanaw taala even as they see the most beloved of people to them torn up into different limbs, they perceive the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala but they feel the absence of the ummah.

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

Allah azza wa jal will gather us.

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

And Allah Subhana Allah will say, Where were you?

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

Where were you?

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

And it's something that should

00:28:00--> 00:28:02

move all of our hearts right now.

00:28:03--> 00:28:07

To ask ourselves, are we doing the best that we can?

00:28:09--> 00:28:16

It's up Allah muster title. Fear Allah as much as you can. Are we doing the best that we can?

00:28:17--> 00:28:20

But they're not asking where's Allah subhanaw taala.

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

You want to know where the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is,

00:28:26--> 00:28:34

look at the same people about whom you're feeling that pain. And you're asking these questions. If you are about what's happening.

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

The people of the world see the secret of the people of Gaza

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

and wonder, what is it about them

00:28:44--> 00:28:47

that inspires them, young and old.

00:28:49--> 00:28:54

All of these different people to have such a deep connection with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:28:55--> 00:29:01

I bring it back to our situation. And I told you, we'll go back to the end.

00:29:03--> 00:29:11

You see the proud tyrants speaking without fear of reprisal in this life.

00:29:13--> 00:29:27

You see the arrogance oppressors whether it's in Israel or the United States of America or wherever it may be speaking with such immunity with such little fear in this life,

00:29:28--> 00:29:34

go back to a time when they will not even be able to speak.

00:29:36--> 00:29:54

And Allah subhanaw taala calls out, says Anil Malik, Al Malik am local art. I am the king. I am the king. Where are the so called kings of the world and the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that the tyrants on the day of judgment would be like ants.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

You know some of those people that you see making tic tock videos

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

dedicating the ruins of the homes of our families, to their children.

00:30:06--> 00:30:13

fantasizing about the homes that they will build in the place of our homes, some of them on the Day of Judgment.

00:30:15--> 00:30:27

But may Allah subhanaw taala not make us of the ants Allahumma Amin, may Allah not make us little oppressors and tyrants ourselves. Some of them on the Day of Judgment will be like little ants.

00:30:29--> 00:30:32

These people that feel such strength and such power.

00:30:34--> 00:30:37

Now their brothers and sisters, I bring it back to you and I

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

I don't want you to leave this talk.

00:30:43--> 00:30:46

Just feeling guilt, feeling like am I doing enough?

00:30:48--> 00:30:55

And I don't feel like I'm doing enough. And I feel like all of the efforts that we're putting forth is in vain. I don't want that to be the case.

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

I want you to refocus

00:31:00--> 00:31:18

on what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you a unique position to do what Allah subhanaw taala has put you in a position to do. You are sitting in a place now surrounded by people who can openly chant Free Palestine.

00:31:20--> 00:31:32

You are in a situation where you can openly make your app where you can challenge the belly of the beast from within. While you see our brothers and sisters and its fangs. You are in a position

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

where you can keep this going as long as you want to.

00:31:38--> 00:31:47

Because you know what? If all of us insist on seeing this thing to its end, they cannot silence us all.

00:31:48--> 00:32:20

A lot of times we talk about the weakness of our numbers and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describing the Ummah in its weakness and its numbers, when it becomes like foam or when it becomes like a meal that the nations feast upon, because of something in their hearts of Aladdin. Because of a lack of trust in Allah Subhana Allah, Allah for this world of fear of death, a hatred for the hereafter, these these things that shackle us from within, but it's also of our greatest strengths.

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

That we have this many people

00:32:25--> 00:32:32

around the world that are saying Free Palestine, but also saying La ilaha illa Allah

00:32:33--> 00:32:39

and also saying Hassan Allah when near Milwaukee, and also saying La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

you have to ask yourself

00:32:45--> 00:33:09

Do you believe in Allah subhanho wa taala? And do you believe in what you are seeing as a sign from Allah subhanaw taala in his presence rather than his absence, which is what everybody else is trying to tell us? Are you seen Allah subhanaw taala present in the strength of the people of Gaza? Or are you seeing absence in the supposes strength of the oppressor?

00:33:10--> 00:33:15

That's a huge issue to sort of refocus your Eman and go back to your hearts.

00:33:17--> 00:33:22

And I'm reminded of nodine zenki Rahim Allah.

00:33:23--> 00:33:29

The predecessor of Salahuddin Rahim Allah, who already built the member

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

who built the pulpits

00:33:32--> 00:33:33

for Jerusalem,

00:33:35--> 00:34:03

before it would even come back to the hands of the muscles. Can you imagine that in Syria? He had the minbar built this will go and it will be in most of the lochsa a place where hutzpah was not being given Salah was not happening. Adan was not being called for decades. This is the member that will be placed in that messages. Have you picked out your access? Obeah Have you put yourself already in that situation

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

where I will not be deceived

00:34:09--> 00:34:45

by the destruction in front of me. Instead, I will be inspired by the faith and the resilience in front of me. I refuse to see broken buildings. Instead I see unbreakable people that know where Allah subhanaw taala is that aren't questioning Allah subhanaw taala and if you could be in that type of environment and not question Allah subhanaw taala who am I to come back and question Allah subhanaw taala if you can say hola, hola, La Quwata illa biLlah and Hassan Allah when that matter will kill in that setting. Who am I to not be able to bring myself to see it in my setting.

00:34:46--> 00:34:47

And hamdulillah

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

in nanosolar Hey buddy, Allah's victory is close when the lights are on, and more importantly, what either a bad day or night

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

For any inquiry

00:35:04--> 00:35:05

I want you to take a minutes

00:35:07--> 00:35:10

by yourself one minute

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

to make your art for the people of Gaza

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

take a minutes

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

llama I mean

00:35:53--> 00:35:56

what either so Allah Kariba Diani for anybody.

00:35:58--> 00:36:00

Where's Allah subhanaw taala all of you just spoke to him

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

and he's close.

00:36:04--> 00:36:12

Allah azza wa jal, here's the dua of every single person. The best thing that we could have done for the people of Gaza, we just did it right now.

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

The brothers and sisters draw from the strength that you are seeing in them.

00:36:18--> 00:36:30

And I leave you with one last story from the Olia that we are seeing there. The righteous ones that we are seeing there. I met a doctor yesterday

00:36:32--> 00:36:38

was lost 72 members of his family 72 members of his family

00:36:40--> 00:36:46

and he grew up in Gaza And subhanAllah he made a distinction. He said

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

we are not hopeless even when we feel helpless.

00:36:53--> 00:36:58

There's a big difference between people who are hopeless and people who feel helpless.

00:37:00--> 00:37:02

The believer is able to combine

00:37:03--> 00:37:05

these two states

00:37:06--> 00:37:12

a feeling brokenness in front of Allah subhanaw taala and in Kisara Albania de Allah

00:37:13--> 00:37:33

while having full sun while having full belief and conviction and Allah subhanaw taala His power, His strength to put it all back together. The believer is in full embrace of these two suppose it conflicting conditions. And you know what it reminded me of?

00:37:36--> 00:37:39

If you walked behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:37:41--> 00:37:43

before the Battle of others started

00:37:45--> 00:37:48

Rasul Allah say Sam was in his Irish and the tent

00:37:49--> 00:37:53

and he made your the entire night to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:37:55--> 00:37:58

His hands went up all the way sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

to the point that

00:38:02--> 00:38:05

his cloak fell off of him Salah Hardy, he was salah.

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

And he said, Oh Allah.

00:38:10--> 00:38:18

If this group of people are killed and turn to Catalina in Sabah, and turn bellafill adult, you will not be worshipped on this earth.

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

Oh Allah, give me what you promised me.

00:38:23--> 00:38:34

To the naked eye. If you saw the prophets lie, some in those moments. You might wrongly think maybe there is a faith crisis. That desperation

00:38:36--> 00:38:50

sounds like it's gone to another level that helplessness. Is he questioning what's happening here? To the misguided eye you might see the Prophet sign some and that brokenness and desperation, his hands going all the way up to the sky and say,

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

Oh, no, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam.

00:38:56--> 00:39:24

And I'm Rebecca Sadiq, are they allowed to Allah and he picks up his garment from behind them and puts it back on him, said Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will fulfill his promise to you. No one knew that Allah would fulfill his promise to the prophets lie Selim, better than the prophets lie some not even have a bucket of Sadiq or the Allahu taala. And remember when they were in the cave together, just the year before is up. And the prophets lie some said to Makita Sunday April the Allah La Taksin in Allah Marina, don't grieve Allah is where

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

Allah is with us.

00:39:28--> 00:39:33

He sees us He hears us. He's protecting us. Allah has with us lead times and in Allahumma Anna,

00:39:34--> 00:39:45

if you were witnessing that scene live between the prophets lie someone Abu Bakar all the Allahu Anhu the misguided I might think, maybe, maybe there's a turn here that's happened.

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

But the prophets lie some had more Yaqeen in that moment more certainty in that moment that Allah azza wa jal would answer him. Then every other moments and any other moments in his life, the prophets lie some always had certainty and Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

As promised, whether it was a large army in front of him or a small one, whether the obstacle was small or large, whatever it was also Allah sly Salam was able to combine the feeling of helplessness and brokenness before Allah subhanho wa Taala with complete certainty and trust in the power of Allah Subhan Allah to Allah to not despair, but to make dua out while he was desperate. That is the situation. That is the state of the believer, he calls upon Allah subhanaw taala she calls upon Allah subhanaw taala like a broken person who doesn't know what to do, but at no point questions that Allah subhanaw taala not only knows what he is doing, but Allah subhana wa Tada will do with

00:40:43--> 00:41:11

the believers, what is pleasing to them and more and that Allah Subhana Allah will give victory to the oppressed, and that Allah Subhana Allah will show us his promise, and that ALLAH SubhanA which Allah who told us through the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, that of the signs of the Day of Judgment is there and Ronnie Bateson muck this, that the day that the area of baits and muck this will be established. We believe that as much as we believe that a house is being built when we see the bricks already being put together,

00:41:13--> 00:41:45

because we trust the loss of hundreds Allah, whereas Allah Subhana Allah, Allah whom I mean, in the Lahoma Sabreen in Allahumma, Al metalcon, in the llama and much sinning, may Allah subhanaw taala make us of all of those categories. And may Allah subhanaw taala never allow us to despair or question where he is, but instead constantly be in a state of asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and asking ourselves where Allah Subhana Allah wants us to be Allah him. I mean, does that come Aloha, you know Santa Monica, Allah who would account
