My dear brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome brothers and sisters to

00:00:37--> 00:00:42

April blast from the past Sierra in the 21st century. And this is episode number

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

15 you show?

00:00:47--> 00:00:48

How sure are you?

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

Very Sure. Welcome to Episode 15 My dear brothers and sisters Masha Allah.

00:00:54--> 00:00:58

Today the brothers told me that the masjid ran out of food.

00:00:59--> 00:01:03

I said Allahu Akbar, what happened? They said a larger crowd than

00:01:04--> 00:01:43

the good crowds that we have Mashallah came. I said, What what happened in the center? I don't know. I said, you know what happened is the sale was announced, there was a sale going on, which started with the 21st night of Ramadan, and the sale ends in a few days time. So what happens you have the Mad sale rush. Everybody's rushing, right, Mashallah people came, right? This is the rubberband sale. And but there's a problem with the last minute shopping when you go to a sale, shopping. What's the problem when you go to a sale in the last minute, you don't get the size you want.

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

You only get the x x x L.

00:01:49--> 00:02:32

Right? All the other good sizes are gone. Right? You are too late. But that's a sale of the dounia sale of the euro. Coming even in the last moment is very good. Not only will you get what you want, you get better than you want insha Allah because the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is vast. And we don't restrict Allah's mercy. Right. And that's why I was called as teach us that even though there's only you know, about four days left or five days left in the month of Ramadan. If you haven't brought yourself to Ramadan, bring it now, don't lose hope. Because actions are judged by their endings. If these next four or five days are the best of your days, the glad tidings to you.

00:02:32--> 00:02:46

This is the mercy of Allah. This doesn't mean every year we should relax. Say we'll just wait for the last week because you don't know if you will see the last week. But humble life we witnessing the last week. And we've had weaknesses in the first two weeks, or the first 20 days.

00:02:48--> 00:02:52

But the first 45 days, I say to you, don't be sad.

00:02:55--> 00:03:13

Don't be sad. You still have time to bring it. You still have time. And if you bring it not only will you get what you want inshallah you will get better than you want. Insha Allah Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all evil. Brothers and sisters. Yesterday we were discussing

00:03:14--> 00:03:19

the open Tao of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the way the Quraysh

00:03:21--> 00:03:28

dealt with his open Tao. We said they used many approaches. The first approach was that they turned a blind eye.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

And they thought, the message will

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

subside, it will die out. But when they saw it was spreading,

00:03:38--> 00:03:46

they used another approach. And this approach comprised of many activities, the first activity was to pressure.

00:03:48--> 00:04:24

The last known guardian of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Someone who loved him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam had great respect for so much respect that he brought up his son, and he or the Allahu and so they went to pressure bufala did they succeed? Did they know and we learned many lessons, right? many lessons that you and I can benefit from in this century we spoke about, we spoke about being just when we speak about different groups that are against Islam. We don't generalize. We don't say all the Jews, all the Christians, and so on and so forth.

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

And we shared the example about now in Hosea with the the the the killing of innocent people. We saw clashes in Israel, in Tel Aviv, Jews against Jews, Jews who do not support rockets landing in a Gaza and the death of innocent people. Right, the protest clashed and those who are protesting for the fire. So what do we say about those who are protesting against the firing of these rockets? Do we throw them in the same bucket as everybody else? That's not being just, that's not being just right. We can have supporters from those who are non Muslims.

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

Just like we have seen in Abu Talib, he wasn't a Muslim. Remember when they went to him, we said they told him that look, you are upon the way of Abdulmutallab, and this person is practically insulting the way of the McCallum.

00:05:16--> 00:05:56

surely, surely, surely, you have to do something. It's either you you're a Muslim or you're not. And you, you're not. So how do you tolerate this, but he was a great supporter. He was a great supporter. He knew Allah nurtured The Tao of Mohammed sallallahu, alayhi wasallam by showing Abu Talib evidence and that was was, right. So he continued supporting, okay, so this failed, or just before this we were discussing yesterday at the end of how to maintain ourselves, especially in crises in this times of crisis as well. We see people going on social media, Facebook and Twitter. And just Mashallah, somebody is so emotional, they need to get it out. You know what, we go to

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

Facebook, and we just start taking it out on our page.

00:05:59--> 00:06:12

We go on Twitter, but Twitter and it gives us 160 letters. Facebook is unlimited. So we go and we start and start pouring our hearts, who said Facebook was a place for you to pull your heart? Firstly, secondly,

00:06:13--> 00:06:21

you pouring your heart and other misguided people or misinformed people are going to see what you say and add fuel to the fire

00:06:24--> 00:06:25

help you in

00:06:26--> 00:07:05

a view that you have that might not be correct or a or a behavior that you have that is not ideal, or a habit that you have that is not from the Islamic morals, manners and etiquettes like generalizing going and say that Jews are like this, and so on and so forth. Somebody will say yes. And they'll probably say something worse than you. So what you've done is not open the platform for other people to make mistakes. Right? We said we shouldn't be email emotions. Yes, we know it's human nature to be emotional. But but but what do we say? We keep our emotions in check using our mind and we keep our minds in check using the Sharia, the mind the intellect is used behind the

00:07:05--> 00:07:48

screen of the Sharia. Is that clear? This is what a man necessitates. Right? So we shouldn't do this. Stop going and voicing your opinion in a non academic forum. Facebook is social media is for you to go and hang out, not for you to go discuss theology, unless you discussing it with the right people. You have a group of people who understand understand the principles of the Quran and the Sunnah. And when you go astray or make a mistake, they can correct you, not help you in going astray and go more Australian themselves. So be careful brothers and sisters, we must be careful, we must ensure that we are people that plant good seeds. Never ever plant seeds that seeds of misguidance

00:07:48--> 00:08:35

because if we cause people to become lost, the sin of them becoming lost also comes back to us. If you instigate a harm everybody who does harm because of that which was instigated, you will get a copy of it. We are law protect us. We will not protect us we don't want to carry the burden of other people's mistakes. So we should be extra cautious not to do that which gives credence at the foundation to people making mistakes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us I mean, we should be people that come with the voice of reason. We should be people that come with sanity with clarity with common sense amidst confusion. Why? Because we have what I told you yesterday that which

00:08:35--> 00:08:48

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind as a means of our guidance therapy to become more intimacy to be led to the Luba de Aveda Kitab Allah He was sitting at Len COVID lu badie.

00:08:50--> 00:09:17

You will never ever ever go astray irrespective of which century you are in. And irrespective of circumstance, if you hold steadfast to these two sources, which are these two sources, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the student of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, we are not people of emotion. When I say not people of emotion, I'm not saying don't be emotional.

00:09:18--> 00:09:30

It's human nature to be you know, the scholars of the Sherry they have chapters in their books. I came across a wonderful chapter in Alma faculty members, Amanda shout TV Rama to LA

00:09:31--> 00:09:36

TV has old chapter no more of a part talking about LGBT

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

human nature, human nature, human nature, right tendencies that you feel towards people.

00:09:48--> 00:09:54

So for example, people ask, you know, my minor, my neighbors anonymously, but you know, I feel

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

I see love for them. I see love for them. Why they can't

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

To me, they look after me when I'm ill they visit me. They look after my children, I feel a sense of emotion towards them.

00:10:10--> 00:10:22

Am I sinful for this? We say no, you're not sinful for this. This is human nature is beyond your control. What you sinful for is allowing the feeling you have for them.

00:10:24--> 00:10:29

To start affecting your belief in a line is rational, that even when they do wrong, you accept that wrong.

00:10:31--> 00:10:42

You put them in front of Allah is rational, you can otherwise why would it? If you could not love someone who is not a Muslim? Why would you be able to marry?

00:10:44--> 00:10:47

From the People of the Book, females were Jews and Christians?

00:10:48--> 00:11:18

Why would you be allowed? How would you ever love your wife? If you are not allowed to live without Allah subhanho wa Taala permit this for us? If we were not allowed to feel any emotion, Allah subhana wa Taala? Wouldn't. It's beyond our control. It's human nature. For example, our children, our children, naturally a parent will have a softer tendency towards one child over another. If a husband has more than one wife, none of us here of course.

00:11:20--> 00:11:21

But if

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

big capital IV capital if, quote unquote, if

00:11:26--> 00:12:04

right, it can happen, that you have love for one wife over the other? Will you be sinful for this? No, it's not in your control. But when will you be taken to task? If you allow what you feel? to go against the [???]tier? Will you treat one wife better than the other? you favor one spouse over the other? you favor one child over the other as a teacher? So Pamela, how many times have we been tested with human nature? Well, we have a soft spot for one student, because they deserve it. They just an amazing student. And then the exam time comes and you know that they know the answer, but they just didn't write it well in the exam.

00:12:05--> 00:12:21

But you as a teacher who's been teaching this child for so long, you know, if anyone in the class knows the answer to this chat, but they didn't do it. Well, now you have the dilemma. Should I overlook and just give them acts as if they wrote it well or not? This is where you will be tested.

00:12:23--> 00:13:06

If the system tells you that marks are based on what's on the paper harass, you can't allow this extra feeling you have to cause you to be adjust. So are you held accountable for human nature? No, but what you do as a result of it? Yes. What you say as a result of it? Yes. So we can have emotion when I tell you don't be emotion. I'm not saying you shouldn't feel sad. You shouldn't cry. You should. It's human nature. You should but maintain the laws of the Sharia. In your situation. That is the test of your email. Is that clear? Not that you become emotional, then you start speaking the message that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not come with because you emotional. Yes,

00:13:06--> 00:13:19

somebody does wrong. It's wrong. We emotionally feel it's wrong. But two wrongs do not make a right. Remember this wrong plus wrong does not equal right? It equals wrong squared.

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

Right? You can't make it easy. I said right.

00:13:27--> 00:13:38

Here is that what I'm saying? two wrongs never make a right. two wrongs never make a right. If one person is barking and another person comes and barks like him what's the difference between the two?

00:13:40--> 00:14:20

What's the difference? We have you shown Islam people are not going to say look at the Islamic teaching are good at these people are going to say Look how bad the guy's behavior is. And you know what his name is Muhammad or Yusuf or Hussein it's a Muslim name this Islamic behavior that's what people will say yesterday we said that people see you before they hear you right? The speed of light is faster than the speed of sound you do our by your actions before you do that our by speaking we don't think for one second the person who's gauged you and and and, and and signed off on you and your behavior. You're going to have a moment to explain yourself afterwards. No, they're gone.

00:14:21--> 00:14:30

They're gone with the perception that Muslims This is their behavior. They're the same there's no difference between Islam and what other people do. You Allah protect us from

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

this doing disservice to the student of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah he understand this this is what we're doing. This is what we're doing. You know we're so emotional. We say we need to boycott this product boycott that product. That's good. That's fine. If you feel that this is a means of of effecting change boycotts, but understand this bigger things you need to boycott as well. Like backbiting you need to boycott that, like Riba you got to boycott that like disrespecting your parents. You got a boy

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

cutbacks like being

00:15:04--> 00:15:18

having a bad character with your spouse you need to boycott that like not giving you time to your children and raising your children properly you have to boycott that as well. Like not attending the prayers in the masjid boycott that practice to like delaying use the car boycott it as well.

00:15:19--> 00:15:26

So Panama, there's so many things that need boycotting, and it's our sins that bring our downfall.

00:15:27--> 00:15:44

There's so many things that need boycotting in Nevada you may be comin at you or you may be and Fusarium Allah will not change the condition of a people unless they change their situation themselves. It starts with the self change begins not here.

00:15:45--> 00:16:09

far deeper than here. Remember, we spoke about personality trait character trait shala you went and watched? You did a search for it personality trait versus character trait my short reminder online. So people say start with you. I say no start with yourself. There's a difference between you and yourself. Start from the heart. That's where change begins. Quantum change, mighty change.

00:16:11--> 00:16:40

pre cut the evils of the heart before you boycott a certain product. That's when you really going to have an impact. That's when it's going to happen. That's when the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala descends brothers and sisters. So once again, when I say don't be emotional, I'm not saying have a heart heart like a rock and stop being a human. Now what I'm saying is frame your emotions, place your emotions within the framework of the Sharia, and don't go outside of it.

00:16:42--> 00:16:57

And we will learn this from the next approach of the Quran. What Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for what did they do to them? What did they do to him? salallahu alayhi wasallam and this is the next point. So the first point was what the first point was put pressure on Abu Talib, right. That failed. What did they do afterwards?

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

propaganda

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

propaganda.

00:17:04--> 00:17:10

What we need to do is annihilate the character of the person character assassination

00:17:12--> 00:17:15

is what they said, This is what they'll do. They started doing what

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

calling him names,

00:17:19--> 00:17:31

different names to what they used to call him before. And that's why it's evidence against them. So Pamela, yesterday you were saying I mean, trustworthy, noble man, now magician. Now.

00:17:33--> 00:17:42

different names slandering him sallallahu alayhi wasallam, speaking about him in his absence with that, which is not true about him.

00:17:43--> 00:18:22

This is lambda. Heba is when you discuss something in your brother's absence, it might be true about him, but he doesn't want you to say it. But if what you say is a lie about him that slander, that is slander. So they start propaganda, character assassination, going into the land, right, and assassinating the character of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam, after his character was built upon their testimony, how many times in this era Did they say I mean, the trustworthy one, five years prior or five years prior to the Buddha and prophet who they wanted him to solve the dispute with the caravan placing the stone, you see, when you don't have principles, what happens?

00:18:23--> 00:18:29

You don't have principles, you you go against yourself and you don't even know because you, you nothing,

00:18:31--> 00:18:35

you you cannot be defined, you know, definition of something you cannot be defined.

00:18:36--> 00:18:44

You are where the people are. You sit on the fence, you are where the wind blows, you like the foam on the waves of the ocean,

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

moving about aimlessly,

00:18:49--> 00:19:03

no principles. This is what we learned. This is what people have no principle do the same people. They're contradicting themselves. Now, if you and I are independent observers, right? Look at the situation we say, you know what, you know what?

00:19:05--> 00:19:13

Definitely what's wrong is with the people criticizing him, because they were the ones who built his character, and now without any evidence they breaking it.

00:19:15--> 00:19:34

Right? Common sense tells you this. This is where the sticky point is. We need to deal with this. This is where the observers have to go and see, you know, observers when they look at elections and see if it's been rigged or not, they look for the sticky points and then they investigate it. The sticky point is people who build his character the same people are destroying it, and nothing's changed.

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

Yes, he's come with the message, but he's voted with evidence.

00:19:40--> 00:19:45

And you character assassinating you based on what this is the way the investigation has to happen.

00:19:47--> 00:19:56

And what would the investigation do? It would consider their statements null and void and substantiate Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

But this is what they did to himself.

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

Allahu alayhi wa sallam propaganda, but look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam still, you think it doesn't hurt? You think it doesn't hurt when people lie about you?

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

And you know it hurts right?

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

You know it does.

00:20:16--> 00:20:28

Allah protect us all, but I'm sure all of us have had, at some moment in our life, someone who's lied about us come to spread tales about us. It hurts. It hurts. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:20:29--> 00:20:40

he was asked, he was asked what was the hardest day in your life? Was it hard? When you lost your your uncle Hamza? Probably Allahu Akbar.

00:20:41--> 00:20:46

And around 70 of his companions broke the Allahu anhu magic marine. Was that the hardest?

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

What did he say? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:51--> 00:21:00

I shall have the Allah says, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Have you ever experienced a day harder than the Battle of the day of that battle?

00:21:01--> 00:21:05

He sallallahu alayhi wasallam replied Indeed, I experienced

00:21:06--> 00:21:24

a harder more difficult day than that. emotionally. Of course, she's asking about emotionally. You lost Hamza, you lost your companions. What does that do to you? You miss them. You feel it? You feel it? You have strong emotion. Did you ever feel emotionally drained

00:21:26--> 00:21:33

and draining far greater than what you felt at the end of ohad? He said, Yes, I did.

00:21:34--> 00:21:45

And it was the at the hands of your people, the disbelievers from amongst the courage. He says the hardest treatment I met from them was on the day of Aqaba, when I went to

00:21:48--> 00:21:49

one of the

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

chiefs of

00:21:54--> 00:22:08

one of the heads Empire with a gift gift of the hidden down when Tim with goodness, the purpose of inviting him towards success in this world in the next.

00:22:09--> 00:22:21

He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but I got no response. And I departed in distress with sadness with emotion. He says I did not recover until I arrived at a certain place.

00:22:22--> 00:22:30

And we know what the details are Allahu alayhi wa sallam right? Right. Not only was his message rejected, what were they told to do?

00:22:32--> 00:22:50

run him out of town. Not so not so hard physically. Emotionally, he's already in distress. We know Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam would become extremely sad. And we said this in other episodes. When the message was not accepted Allah Allah and Nicobar he or Neff cerca

00:22:51--> 00:22:59

de him in love You mean to be heard and howdy the SF fella Ted hub, Neff suka la him Hassan.

00:23:00--> 00:23:12

I was telling him in the Quran, don't cause yourself to to distract because of their reluctance in accepting your message which means what? Every time somebody didn't listen to the message you would become so sad.

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

So

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

sad.

00:23:18--> 00:23:33

So he was already beaten emotionally and then he was beaten physically. We're talking about earlier the lesson of not being emotional people to the extent that it makes us cross the boundaries of the Sharia. This is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:23:34--> 00:23:47

emotionally hurt because of slander, emotionally hurt, because his message is being rejected. A mighty hurting, he says I got to a place and

00:23:48--> 00:23:56

jabril and he Salam came to me and said, he said Allah has heard what your people said to

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

allies and what they said to you.

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

And the response they made to you. They emotionally hurt you.

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

You're full of emotion. What would you do today?

00:24:10--> 00:24:11

Facebook, straight away.

00:24:14--> 00:24:25

Listen to what he says Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He says the angels said to him he breathed and he has sent you the angel in charge of the mountains for you to order him to do what you wish love.

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

Allahu Akbar. This is no small matter.

00:24:30--> 00:24:41

Looks matter. President of the country says Sajid I've given you presidential authority over Australia. Right. fix everything up.

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

That's a lot of power. No.

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

Sorry, I didn't mention your name.

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

Palmer sallallahu alayhi wasallam is given power of

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

moving the mountain

00:25:02--> 00:25:24

Bismillah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said the angel of the mountain greeted me this wasn't talking, no action, empty words. No, the angel was there. He greeted Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said, Oh Muhammad, Allah, listen to what your people have said to you. I am the angel of the mountains, and my Arab has sent me to you, so that you may give me your orders.

00:25:25--> 00:25:33

And I will carry them out. If you wish, I will bring the mountains together that stand opposite to each other.

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

And these evil, oppressive extreme people will be crushed in between low and

00:25:43--> 00:25:53

mighty indeed. Mighty indeed. Remember the other day I said Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never invited to himself invited to the message. Remember that lesson.

00:25:54--> 00:26:01

He never invited to his ego and was upset because my dad didn't accept my statement. So I'm upset.

00:26:03--> 00:26:15

We were in a team meeting, they took his idea of a mine. So I'm upset. Now. He was inviting to the message. You know what? You know what proof What proof I have to substantiate what I said.

00:26:16--> 00:26:27

Besides the fact that Allah said don't cause yourself to self destruct because they don't want your message. This heavy here brothers and sisters, if he was quoting to himself, and hurt because his ego was hurt.

00:26:28--> 00:26:29

What would the human being to

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

say, move the mountains together?

00:26:36--> 00:26:53

Allah No. He was inviting to the message. He was sad because the message of Allah, the message of Allah was not accepted son, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah is not blameworthy to if you know your guidance, and you call to yourself, not blame. But you know what's better,

00:26:54--> 00:26:58

to call to the message, said about me. It's about the message.

00:27:00--> 00:27:14

said about my ratings. It's about you accepting the message is not about whose message of whose speech you took from. It's about you getting the message to Russia with my final draft as well.

00:27:16--> 00:27:19

hamdulillah The more people that come to speak, the better.

00:27:20--> 00:27:28

Because it's about the people getting the message, not who they get it from. So is that it's the right message but they should get it

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

because we call to the message

00:27:34--> 00:27:39

not to ourselves, we Allah forgive us and protect us. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:27:42--> 00:27:48

in this most difficult circumstance, emotionally beaten, physically beaten, locker.

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

He teaches us how to place our emotions within the framework of the Sharia.

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

doesn't miss the lesson area

00:27:59--> 00:28:06

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I rather hope that Allah will raise from among their descendants people

00:28:08--> 00:28:14

that will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and not ascribe partners to him.

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

This is what he said some of the who and he was Allah. If I crush them, there'll be nobody left. If we leave them, I can come back here one day.

00:28:23--> 00:29:00

The issue is the message. There'll be new people I can come back to and I can share with them the message. sal Allahu Allah, he was in the May Allah gathers with him in gender. I mean, this is in Bukhari and Sahih, Al Bukhari and Muslim. No doubt in the oma regarding this incident happening and being authentic. This is what happened, brothers and sisters take the lesson. Take the lesson. It's about what's right. today. There's so much propaganda we don't know, Arthur from Martha's panela. And we all formulating opinions that cause emotions, and we act upon it.

00:29:03--> 00:29:14

Look at the articles coming out now talking about some governments in the Middle East. And I want to be a spreader of use because I haven't verified it. And I can't I don't have the tools to verify.

00:29:16--> 00:29:17

Right.

00:29:18--> 00:29:19

But I'm sure you read.

00:29:20--> 00:29:38

And you can relate to what I'm saying my aim from this talk is not to to expose unconfirmed things, but their statements about some of the government's in the Middle East with regards to what's happening in hersa, and so on and so forth. So the article came out who wrote article

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

just a background.

00:29:44--> 00:29:49

how relevant is the message? What type of research is this? What have they based it on?

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

Did they get it from somebody who heard it from somebody who heard it from somebody or did they get it from the horse's mouth, not that anyone is a horse, but you know what I'm saying

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

but we accept

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

Then we get emotion then we start making dua that we can do against certain people based on what?

00:30:07--> 00:30:21

At least okay? If you feel it's true at least say if it is true, then May Allah subhanho wa Taala do this, if it is true, this is being just, this is not letting the emotion get the better of you, this is the way

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

as we have seen

00:30:27--> 00:30:29

today, you know, the scholars of Hadith

00:30:32--> 00:30:37

if a hadith comes, and the narrator is module and had

00:30:40--> 00:30:57

meaning the name of the person is known, but his character his ability with Hadith is unknown. They say that is a means of question marks being raised over the the authenticity of the narration. He knows the name of the person but you didn't know about him.

00:31:00--> 00:31:06

module and the end meaning the person is not merciful a module and

00:31:08--> 00:31:12

the name of the person is known. But the reality of who he is is unknown.

00:31:14--> 00:31:15

Today, you and I

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

merge who will lie.

00:31:19--> 00:31:23

We don't know who wrote it. We don't know who said it. We don't even know this situation and we accept it.

00:31:25--> 00:31:41

Look at WhatsApp and the messages that fly forward, please forward forward, please forward Marshall. Everybody's got time on their hands. You know, the waiting for is far less forward. Right. This is a good message. It's forward. I don't know if it's good. But it seems good.

00:31:42--> 00:31:56

Seems like a prophetic message. So what do we do? Quickly broadcast now? What shall our 200 people you can broadcast to 200? People go on the list? Boom, sent phone crashes, Whatsapp crashes, everything crashes.

00:31:58--> 00:32:01

And what did you do? You spread something that's not been verified.

00:32:05--> 00:32:11

Lucia killer. You know, this time we unleash killer, killer, killer pet name, even amongst the non Arabs. This is a problem.

00:32:13--> 00:32:45

This is a problem. Emotion should be placed within the framework of the Sharia. This was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is what he did. So the Quraysh when British monopoly failed, they went to the next thing, mocking jeering character assassination, going out in the market and doing everything they could. And you know what, it was a continuation from something which started when he said the first message. Remember when he stood on suffian, he announced and Abu lahab said what he said wasn't that an insult?

00:32:46--> 00:33:23

did not make dragons the Prophet. He insulted him, he hurt him emotionally. But even then the police decided then turn a blind diet don't give it importance. And you know what, there's some wisdom in it. There's some wisdom, you know, some some websites that have come out websites. And these websites have misguided messages about Islam. What do we see Muslims? do they mean? Well, Muslims mean well, they gather all the links and start sending it to everybody. You have to be aware of these websites be aware of these websites be aware of these websites now it's human nature. You said beware you didn't give anything human nature. Let's go see click click click click click.

00:33:25--> 00:33:28

So you warning people against but you got people to visit.

00:33:29--> 00:33:46

Without you intending? Of course you made good, but people visited. So what happened? That website got ratings now, Google Analytics got ratings. So now when you search about Islam, which websites come up first? Which ones these ones that have got so many hits?

00:33:48--> 00:33:52

You have to be you know, and this is why I also tell our young brothers and sisters be current.

00:33:54--> 00:34:20

But just current in terms of fashion, be current in terms of what's happening, how things work. Don't be closed blinkers naive, too much naivety too much and cannibal cannibal supernova. Like we said earlier, except news unconfirmed, build a whole bunch of responses based on it. cannibal naivety is there? Yes, we should think good in people. But don't be naive. There's a difference.

00:34:22--> 00:34:26

A Muslim doesn't fall in the same hole twice. Get caught in the same trap twice.

00:34:29--> 00:34:41

Even if the person has changed, we accept it. Because we don't believe we better than anybody in front of Allah. But it doesn't mean that we stopped being cautious about the person that he did this to us before he could do it again.

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

Right. So we must understand this brothers and sisters.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

They went into character assassination propaganda. This was the next approach. We're going to annihilate his message by doing this. He is the only one with this message. Nobody else is saying it. If we can convince the people

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

a madman, no one will listen to him who listens to a madman.

00:35:04--> 00:35:19

Let's cheer him. Let's ridicule him. Let's show that we are the Quraysh the other tribes follow us. Let's go and show how we've debased this man, how literal and small he is in our eyes. Nobody will listen to his message. Let's try that approach.

00:35:20--> 00:35:21

Right? This is what they did.

00:35:23--> 00:35:27

And as I said, emotional harm brothers and sisters is hot. Don't think for a moment. It's easy.

00:35:30--> 00:35:40

It's a test from Allah, somebody backbiting somebody spreading rumors about you, you get into the dark or somebody starts sending messages, stay away from this person, it affects you. It happens, right?

00:35:42--> 00:35:53

Your friends do something to you. Even when your enemies do it. You feed it. Nobody should say emotional hurt is is is not hard. It's hard. In fact, it's one of the hardest hurts what's the evidence for it? What

00:35:54--> 00:35:58

was said? He said that day and five was harder for me than hurt.

00:36:01--> 00:36:06

Right? emotional hurt matters, brothers and sisters. So this is what they did to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

They started slandering.

00:36:13--> 00:36:18

Today, brothers and sisters, propaganda is a sign of the times.

00:36:20--> 00:36:33

Not only is it something but it's a sign of the time this century is not the century without listing propaganda as a part of the makeup of the century. propaganda.

00:36:34--> 00:36:42

So it exists. Look at Islamophobia. What is that? If Islam was a human being Subhanallah? how hurt would Islam be?

00:36:44--> 00:36:51

How would look at Islamophobia what what is said about Islam? If Islam was a human being? how hurt would Islam be treated? brothers and sisters?

00:36:52--> 00:36:54

how hurt would Islam be?

00:36:57--> 00:37:04

Right? And this should also tell us how responsible we are. We are the ambassadors of Islam. How well have we defended Islam? Are

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

we failing Islam?

00:37:07--> 00:37:18

Islam says I am a human being you are my protectors. It will be crying saying you failed me. You failed me. You failed. You failed me You failed. The propaganda is so loud that we just passive.

00:37:20--> 00:37:21

It's so loud.

00:37:23--> 00:37:56

The character of Islam is being assassinated. What are you doing about it? Are you going to help the assassination by going on social media and presenting unbecoming behavior? There's a reason brothers be behind what i'm saying i know this talk is not the lessons are not as light and appealing to many like the earlier lessons of parenting and marriage and so on and so forth. But these are also lessons from the Sierra who said the Sierra is our Constitution. Right? This matters to us today. So have a look at this Malaysian Airlines today propaganda is such a, a,

00:37:58--> 00:38:23

a part and parcel of the century that today people use it to discredit their own people for power. Malaysian Airlines as you know, we all wish our is upon our Muslim brothers and sisters in Malaysia and the families who lost their loved ones. I mean, and let's make dua for Malaysian Airlines as well. Let's not forget everybody's pointing fingers at them. This airline is hurting as well. This is two tragedies in one year.

00:38:24--> 00:38:46

This is not that this is the time to support it wasn't their fault. Um, what's in the news? What's in the news? People trying to discredit the Malaysian government people from within the country they have they want to serve their own agenda. And we know how it works everybody's is is after for after market share and greater share of public opinion using this.

00:38:47--> 00:38:52

To get one up on the government This is wrong. This is wrong. This is propaganda.

00:38:54--> 00:39:07

This is character assassination as well, using everything to character assassinate somebody, something which is not even you should be used. Right? That the kurush they were using nothing, madman, sorcerer,

00:39:10--> 00:39:17

and so on and so forth. This wasn't who he was. He was silly, but they were inventing today the same thing in propaganda, we invent things to bring people down.

00:39:19--> 00:39:55

We forget this something called the plane coming down to the corner of Allah who could who could anticipate that you think anyone could script it? That that's what would happen. Flying over Europe. Nobody could script is the color of Allah. It's a test from Allah. It's a test. Liam is en la hobbies Amina. This way Allah will will separate and differentiate and make manifest the pure people and the filthy people, the people of belief, and those who disbelieve the people who will say this is the Corolla. It's a test from Allah. I will not deny Allah I will be patient.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

Allah is always what he does. Rasulullah

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

Allahu alayhi wa sallam did not have to go through this. He did not have to be stoned into if he did not have to be emotionally beaten Salalah while he was sending him or her didn't have to happen, but that didn't have to happen. He drove to Hypatia didn't have to happen. He drove to Medina didn't have to happen.

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

sha Allah,

00:40:21--> 00:40:26

Allah, the Kowloon Jamia, if Allah will everyone on earth would have believed

00:40:28--> 00:40:36

that it's the Divine Wisdom of Allah that things happen this way. Brothers and sisters, because you and I are not in gender.

00:40:37--> 00:41:08

You know, you got to understand this brothers and sisters, we in the dunya we're not living in perpetual bliss in a place of perpetual bliss. Nobody said that. Dunya was a place of perpetual bliss. And nobody said that dunya was a place of perpetual doom. Jenna perpetual bliss jahannam perpetual Doom, the dunya phase in between moments of happiness, moments of difficulty in happiness. We are being tested in difficulty we are being tested in happiness. We've been tested to see whether we will thank Allah in difficulty we've been tested to see whether we will deny Allah.

00:41:11--> 00:41:20

Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the Muslim not any human being is a believer is in a win win situation. When goodness befalls him.

00:41:22--> 00:41:23

He was thankful

00:41:24--> 00:41:27

shakar of love can hire Allah.

00:41:28--> 00:41:31

And when difficulty afflicted him,

00:41:33--> 00:41:34

he was patient

00:41:36--> 00:41:39

for Canada, and that was good for him. When we

00:41:41--> 00:42:09

remember my hailstones example, I've said it how many times here? The hailstones example. He forgot it. You remember it? Right? For the newcomers in the audience, and as a reminder to everyone who had it. I shared with your brothers and sisters an example I said, If hailstones fall from the sky and smash all your windscreens, is that good or bad? Is that goodness or is that a test to religion? What is it?

00:42:10--> 00:42:24

What is it? So test? tribulation, isn't it? It's bad, it's difficult. But what about the guy who sells windscreens perfect for him? The guy who's got a windscreen shop he sells windscreens

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

is he sad or is he happy?

00:42:29--> 00:42:30

He's very happy.

00:42:31--> 00:42:35

You're sad your windscreen got smashed. He's happy he can sell his windscreens. today.

00:42:39--> 00:43:13

Nothing is pure evil is evil. If you look at it from one side, and if you took some time out, you'll see the goodness and wisdom in it. There's goodness in it. And we'll come to it we'll come to it. Why the Sahaba were tested why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was tested as well. Right so I'm just trying to say current examples in when I'm speaking about the Malaysian Airlines and so on so forth the lesson here is what the Koreans did propaganda this happens today. This this is what happens today. Right? People become leaders there has to be a propaganda division in the whole operation.

00:43:16--> 00:43:34

Right. And we know this we know this we have read reports of how certain parties actually get a professional I don't know what they call them spindle. What do they call them? Spin masters. Forget the name there's a special sorry Spin Doctors Spin Doctors Yes, put a spin on everything.

00:43:36--> 00:43:44

People will see for what it is printed around. Show them the back door and looking at the front door Spin Doctors right

00:43:45--> 00:44:04

doesn't make some mistake politician makes a mistake he's gonna get bad public image let's spin it. Let's print it people's emotions are already there. Let's channel how that emotion comes out to the benefit of the person. Allah subhana wa tada doesn't like this Allah says what will Buddha mean abueva

00:44:06--> 00:44:10

allows you to be straight on the straight and narrow enter the house from its door.

00:44:13--> 00:44:17

Not from Israel window is shimmy. Enter from which to be strength.

00:44:19--> 00:44:53

And this is from Tacoma. Tacoma. Being straight speaking straight is from the from you acquiring Tukwila, un Latina de la waku Colin said either oh you believe be God conscious. And what will help you get there? Colin said either speaking an upright word, not a crooked word. an upright word. This is from taco right. So this is what the courage did propaganda did it work now. Now let's uh, don't lose hope brothers and sisters. Islamophobia

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

is not gonna work. It's not gonna work. In a lot of cases, the opposite happens.

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

This is what happened what happened when the correct spread, spread the propaganda. Remember that example of the websites I gave you is spread the websites instead of people saying go away they go to it. Right? This is what happened. People from all over sending people to come see the What's this? Who is this person visiting the courage go and see.

00:45:19--> 00:45:20

Go and see him

00:45:23--> 00:45:23

smilla

00:45:28--> 00:45:52

so what happened when they went to see this oh good character, how many people came? How many people send their messages? The messages went back and they said, What did you see? Did you see the saucer a madman who is visiting the Quraysh? This mighty clan in charge of the carrabba birds cave with stones? To remove elephants on their watch? Who is this man spinning them they said we don't know what we saw was a man with such good character sweetest words

00:45:54--> 00:46:04

welcomes you with a smile. You see what is happening? opposite effect. opposite effect. When you insincere brothers and sisters. Does it work in your favor?

00:46:06--> 00:46:08

acts you will be exposed

00:46:09--> 00:46:19

didn't work in their favor. All they did was assist in spreading the word of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam making this unknown, even more known.

00:46:20--> 00:46:44

Right? This is what happens today. Look what Islamophobia has done for Islam. Who doesn't know about Islam? Yes, the issue is, but and and this is what happens. They hear the wrong message of Islam, the fox news narrative and so on and so forth. What happens? Any educated person says Hold on a second. Yeah. You know, in school, I had classmates who are Muslims. I had neighbors who are Muslims. I've dealt with people who are Muslim, we read up on this thing.

00:46:45--> 00:46:51

How many reports they have we seen say we became interested in Islam because of something we saw on the news.

00:46:52--> 00:46:53

And then what happened?

00:46:54--> 00:46:58

It was a means of our guidance. We picked up the Quran and we said span Allah, they picked up the Quran and

00:47:00--> 00:47:00

change them.

00:47:02--> 00:47:07

You know, in, in my home city, Lester, I left Leicester as a young boy, my home city Lester.

00:47:12--> 00:47:21

It snowed a couple of years ago. So the Muslims from a Masjid, which I would consider local had I been living in Leicester must be the Roma.

00:47:23--> 00:47:29

The Masjid is in a wonderful, you know, really if you if you Google it less than if you try Google Maps.

00:47:31--> 00:47:35

Maybe Google will give us some royalties because how many times have we said Google here.

00:47:37--> 00:48:07

If you go on Google Maps and you type musty, doorman less than you see it's a very unique location. If there's a hill that comes down, there's a road going this way and a road going this way. And Mr. Roemer is at the bottom of the hill right in the center of the two roads that go up unique. As you're driving, you take a bend and you just see this beautiful machine in front of you very unique. Now note that it's its center to a hilly area, so two high roads going up. So it snowed, and the roads were full of snow, obviously.

00:48:08--> 00:48:35

So what happened some of the masalas from the semester decided to be true to their being Muslims, they went and bought these green jackets, the right shoes on so forth, and they started themselves directing traffic, making sure someone's on the top of the hill, right, there's no car coming. So the person at the top would allow the car because you slide this slide, you can slip, you can avoid an accident. Some cars were going up getting stuck all of a sudden, five bearded people with the back pushing your car up the hill.

00:48:37--> 00:48:44

Right? Imagine and are Muslims looking in the rearview mirror and just seeing these beards, but so Pamela being pushed,

00:48:45--> 00:48:47

right. What happened was

00:48:48--> 00:49:05

a non Muslim British female who lived in this area, who said that she had a relative went to Afghanistan. And I think if my memory serves me, I don't think he was injured when he was killed that she say she hated Muslims. And it was the worst time of her life. She had to live in this area. It's an area where Muslims have set up.

00:49:07--> 00:49:15

She was like the worst impression of Muslim and she has not wrote to the newspaper we knew of I didn't even know this was happening until I read this article.

00:49:17--> 00:49:18

What happened?

00:49:19--> 00:49:23

She was driving that a halfway car got stuck started sliding.

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

All of a sudden

00:49:28--> 00:49:34

clatter clatter clatter hands. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom around the car. She looks up in the mirror. This bearded man.

00:49:36--> 00:49:40

The people who the TV has made her hate because they gave her the wrong impression.

00:49:41--> 00:49:48

Right. And she didn't know better. As many like her was this many who go and read this many who don't.

00:49:50--> 00:49:58

She sees her car sort of rolling backwards to a destruction is being pushed up this year. Until the cargo attraction and she left

00:49:59--> 00:49:59

so she did

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

You know what I owe it to them. She wrote an article newspaper, this is who I am. This is how much I hated Muslims until this day, this is what happened.

00:50:14--> 00:50:20

People see you before they hear these people speak to her. No, she was in a vehicle window shop, she drove afterwards.

00:50:22--> 00:50:25

But she saw they did change the perception.

00:50:28--> 00:50:32

Right? So what we're seeing brothers and sisters is Islamophobia

00:50:34--> 00:50:51

or what we saw, as a, as a result of the propaganda of the courage we see today as a result of Islamophobia and the propaganda regarding Islam. And everybody, you will only see the worst was the mistakes of the Muslims out there. That's what you will see.

00:50:52--> 00:50:54

And that's what brothers and sisters

00:50:55--> 00:50:57

have a good heart with the non Muslims.

00:50:58--> 00:51:11

respect them as a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They don't know better. A lot of us. Yes, we human beings we emotionally hurt because of what they do. But they do it because they don't know better. What do you want?

00:51:12--> 00:51:16

We haven't showed them the Islam that this was supposed to have seen. Right?

00:51:18--> 00:51:19

They haven't seen it.

00:51:21--> 00:51:30

What they've seen is what's come out on TV, what's being shown on the internet, the mistakes of of you. We're not saying that they haven't been Muslims who've made mistakes, we say yes.

00:51:31--> 00:51:39

But nobody says that Christianity preaches what we see happening in some of the churches with some of the

00:51:40--> 00:51:43

what we see the sometimes the media puts out right?

00:51:44--> 00:51:47

about some events that happen in the churches,

00:51:48--> 00:51:52

with regards to children, and so on and so forth, this won't get into details is a pure place.

00:51:54--> 00:51:59

Do we as Muslims say this is what Christianity teaches? No, we would be lying.

00:52:01--> 00:52:08

And that's a form of denying your your, what you need to believe to be a Muslim or you believe in Jesus and you believe that Allah revealed to you.

00:52:09--> 00:52:14

Christianity does not teach we say this is not Christianity. This is the mistake of a few

00:52:16--> 00:52:17

is the Muslim message.

00:52:18--> 00:52:21

And perhaps the Muslim should step out and show that just nature.

00:52:22--> 00:52:31

Allah emotion, emotion, Muslims, what they do, they become part and parcel of the propaganda machine. Think they think like the pert like the machine.

00:52:32--> 00:52:49

News article pops up this is what what was discovered in such and such a church what happens? paste the article on Facebook? Look, look at this. Everybody know, this is where you show who you are. Don't crush them. Perhaps tomorrow there'll be people who will listen to the message.

00:52:53--> 00:52:59

This is hearing the 21st century I'm speaking to Current Affairs, brothers and sisters, Current Affairs, go and take it to your people.

00:53:02--> 00:53:06

You will look on how did the hype Go and tell those who are not here?

00:53:08--> 00:53:23

We have La Grande Baraka in the speech and message. I mean, I mean, so in the same so what we're saying is, Islam is being known. People are reading about Islam, people want to find out about Islam. Why? Because all of a sudden, there's so much Islam in the news.

00:53:25--> 00:54:00

right but in the same breath, realize this people who are gullible, naive, they listen to the news and believe it to be true. And that's the opinion they take. So when they come to you, you walking across the street, in your soap in your beard, you go to the airport, it's human nature. Yes, nobody is allowed to be racist, but it's human nature. How you naturally love somebody, but you're not supposed to act on it. If it means you being unjust, sometimes human nature, people have a hatred for you. They have a hatred for Islam. And you have shown them that you're a Muslim, they don't want to show it but sometimes it will come out. What should you do? They can excuse.

00:54:01--> 00:54:32

This is where you understand that they don't know better, it's not their fault. This is where you take the higher ground. speak to them nicely say look, I you're a good person. And I you didn't mean to say this. But you know what you said it, it hurt me this way. And it's not your fault. You probably have views of Islam based on you know, the mistakes of a few Muslims that the news has gone to party with. But if you have a moment, can I just, you know, share with you something shows you the other side.

00:54:35--> 00:54:52

You see how you change the negative to a positive. This is when you invite to the message and not to yourself. This is what you do brothers and sisters. This is what you do. Here are some people they say at the airport. You know, everyone was putting the patch at the machine I had to get patted.

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

Why are being targeted. I said Oh brother, brother next time what you should do when you go to the machine go

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

To the guy Patrick, and he pat me. does what you should do, don't put don't put him in a situation you think he doesn't know that you're gonna feel like you're being targeted.

00:55:10--> 00:55:22

He merciful to the world. This was your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam doing the job, it is what it is. It is what it is brothers and sisters, you go to them and say, Look, pat me

00:55:27--> 00:55:34

because you're a forgiving person you understand. It's not their fault. They're doing their job and these systems have come into place because of the mistakes of a view.

00:55:36--> 00:55:41

It's unjust to deny that there's been mistakes, but it's also unjust not to accept the reality of the situation.

00:55:43--> 00:55:56

Don't be upset somebody comes to you Muslims are like this. Well, either haka Bahama, J. Luna Pousada. When the ignorant people speak to them, they respond in a peaceful way. The message is peace.

00:55:57--> 00:56:04

You Muslims are like this quiet wait for them to finish I think get out of the chest. So what you've said, and I'm really trying to be a good person.

00:56:06--> 00:56:12

But do you mind telling us where did you get your information from that you said the Muslims are like, this is what you've said? I don't know. I've never heard it. I'm a Muslim.

00:56:14--> 00:56:15

Maybe you can help me.

00:56:16--> 00:56:30

You know, maybe if what you what you saying is right, then I have to question what I am. Sometimes reverse psychology. Be clever. Be clever in your data, but be sincere. I'm not saying don't be sincere. Right.

00:56:31--> 00:56:38

Your job is to turn a negative into a positive make sure a door of the hour opens when the door shut.

00:56:39--> 00:56:40

What does Allah say?

00:56:42--> 00:57:00

indefatigability here for either lead for either the beta carabiner who Ida Khanna who Wali Yoon, Hamid Hamid, Allah subhanho wa Taala says repel the evil with goodness, so that the enmity between you and a person

00:57:05--> 00:57:10

can go away. And the person who is your enemy becomes your strongest supporter.

00:57:14--> 00:57:18

That's the that's the successful that's where you measure success.

00:57:19--> 00:57:21

That's where you measure it.

00:57:23--> 00:57:32

Don't tell me how successful I did this, this and that the easy things. Tell me about the difficult stuff. From yesterday, we said, we test our relationship when we disagree.

00:57:33--> 00:57:44

This fundamental thing we've disagreed upon, let's see now that's the test of the relationship. This is the test of your character where you can convert the enemy into a supporter into a supporter.

00:57:48--> 00:58:09

Allah says not everyone can do this, but only the patient people. And those people, the people of greatness. greatness must be great. Islam needs you to be great. It needs you to be great, because this is what you can bring to the table. So they came with propaganda. Right? And

00:58:11--> 00:58:13

as they came with propaganda,

00:58:14--> 00:58:21

the propaganda failed. It didn't succeed, propaganda fell flat on its face.

00:58:22--> 00:58:26

So what happened? They needed a new strategy. What was the strategy?

00:58:32--> 00:58:33

What was the strategy?

00:58:34--> 00:58:37

physical harm. That's what the strategy was.

00:58:39--> 00:58:43

Their strategy was physical harm. They said, You know what?

00:58:45--> 00:59:27

emotional hurt is not working. Let's give them physical heart now. This is what they did. Anyone who accepts Islam, we're going to deal with him and deal with him severely severe dealing, so that we deter anyone and everyone from even flirting with the idea of being a Muslim. This is what they did. Right? military exercise, this is what we're going to do. This is what they decided the heads of the clans came came together, that you know what, we are people of blood. But even though if someone from our blood accepts this message, they will be punished. This is what we're going to do. propaganda is not working. The opposite is happening more people are coming to Islam, people from

00:59:27--> 00:59:32

foreign lands we hearing accepting Islam. Now we need to cover physical harm.

00:59:34--> 00:59:38

And this is what they agreed to the heads of the Qureshi agreed to it. And from there was

00:59:40--> 00:59:41

our and don't forget.

00:59:43--> 00:59:59

He was a blessing person even before Islam in that as a young person, he was given a position in the House of Representatives, the Croatia, the House of Representatives that the heads would meet, discuss current affairs, let's do a vote, take it to a vote with this policy come into effect or not. Right

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

Omar was there took the place of his father, as a young person. They said we will do it. Omar was a principal person, he wasn't doing this because of them.

01:00:12--> 01:00:20

He was doing it because he was a principal person and he was a strong advocate for unity. And he saw the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam causing,

01:00:22--> 01:00:25

quote unquote, division, father and son,

01:00:26--> 01:00:30

no more talking to each other. Families breaking up.

01:00:31--> 01:01:13

Right? This is what happened. Families breaking up and so on and so forth. So Omar supported it, that we need to maintain unity, and this message has to be dissolved. And then when Allah opened his heart towards Islam, that is what I'm sharing it with you because we're not going to discuss this level of format in this series, we will discuss it in another series inshallah, in part two of the Macan period. But when Allah open his heart to Islam, what did he do? Immediately? Let's go pray. This is the hub. He knew that Islam does not divide, it unites. His paradigm shifted. And he was a supporter of unity principles, man. So the moment he understood that Islam is unity, and not

01:01:13--> 01:01:28

division, and what I was upon was division and not unity, and I'm a proponent of unity. What's the What does that equal equals? I should be a Muslim. Principle people do this. They're not shy to change on what people? What do they say about me? You know,

01:01:29--> 01:01:30

I look bad.

01:01:31--> 01:01:35

You know, how would I look? You know, I keep a beard, my friends would laugh at me.

01:01:36--> 01:01:43

You know, I, you know, if I kept my trousers above my ankles, you know, just don't look right. People will say, I'm weird. I'm strange.

01:01:45--> 01:01:50

Doesn't matter. Be principled principle that you will follow a line is

01:01:51--> 01:02:03

the principle that he's he will support unity. So he became a Muslim, and Subhanallah when he became a Muslim, what did he do? He went straight to the House of Representatives, the same people who were sitting and listening to them.

01:02:04--> 01:02:09

what they had to say, years and years of how to deal with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he?

01:02:11--> 01:02:27

if my memory serves me, right, he was the one who pitched the idea that we should punish those who accept Islam, because of this disunity. He pitched it. But when guidance came to him, what did he say some of the other one? What did he say brothers and sisters? He

01:02:28--> 01:02:37

thought the Allahu Akbar went to the same people to the same house of representatives and said, You know what, by the way, I'm upon the deen of Muhammad, Mashallah.

01:02:39--> 01:02:52

Let's get Who cares what you think of me. And then he went to the people who hee hee hee hee punished because they accepted Islam and said I'm on the way of Muhammad. And for those who I punished come and take

01:02:54--> 01:03:18

your right for me now today. So he's not taken on the day of gamma look at belief, the Quran she had two issues. They had issues in terms of worshipping Allah. The other issue that they had brothers and sisters was what was they didn't believe in the hereafter. But look at Omar, he's telling them not on the day of already belief is there there's a day of the AMA come and take you right now. But obviously, people are looking at almost who's gonna lay a hand on this man.

01:03:20--> 01:03:21

So we rather forgive you it's better.

01:03:24--> 01:03:53

Right, but inshallah we'll discuss that story as we move along, as we move along with the law. So they came with physical harm. And one by one, they started inflicting harm upon those who accepted Islam, especially upon the slave boys. Why? Because the slave boys had no defenders. The other people had the tribes and influential families. The slave boys had no defenders

01:03:55--> 01:03:57

below robiola What What happened to him?

01:03:58--> 01:04:00

What happened to him brothers and sisters to be

01:04:02--> 01:04:15

below robiola one was heavily punished, they would tie a rope around his neck and give it to the children to put him in the streets of Mecca like you would put an animal

01:04:17--> 01:04:52

and then they would make him lie on the hot desert sand and put boulders on his chest and beat him and lash him and say you're in now go against the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this punishment will stop but no, what did he say? I had a had a had and kept on saying it kept on saying Allah what message is this? What message is this that is giving bravery to slaves against the Masters What is this message well is now empowers you brothers and sisters. Islam empowers you.

01:04:56--> 01:04:59

Any historian site the snap of Roma right

01:05:00--> 01:05:29

Some have said this weakness in the narration but many historians cite it. And what's the one of the one of the events that happened was that Omar calm down when he, when he was beating his brother in law and his sister jumped in, and he, he beat her. never intended, but it happened she jumped in. This is what it is, what was his? What caused him to stop and say, hold on a second, let me read this stuff here. What caused him? He's saying, What message gives a female to jump in the path of the strike of Omar.

01:05:31--> 01:05:34

And this is no mighty strike brothers and sisters.

01:05:36--> 01:05:42

This wasn't a mighty strike. You know, once I went to South Africa, in South Africa, there was

01:05:43--> 01:05:49

we went to this lion Park. And in the lion Park, you could walk with the cheetahs.

01:05:51--> 01:06:10

You know, I'm not a thrill seeker, but I forgot that this is thrill seeking. I ended up saying, let me sign up when I when I paid the money, they gave me a form. I said, What's this form? You have to sign that you will not be held responsible for anything that happens to you? I said, No, no, no, this wasn't part of it. Give me my money back. They said no, no, once you pay look at the sign once paid no refund.

01:06:13--> 01:06:15

Right. So I said I said,

01:06:16--> 01:06:17

Okay.

01:06:20--> 01:06:24

Has anyone been harmed? They said, No. What yet?

01:06:26--> 01:06:29

This is what they said. So

01:06:30--> 01:06:34

I said, hey, what can I do? I got to, you know, spend this money.

01:06:35--> 01:06:39

You know, let's go and shall light safe and

01:06:41--> 01:07:13

shall light safe. And you know, I'll get through to we've got to take a bit longer today. It's anticipated bear with me. These are blessing nights. And it's just tonight, and tomorrow is our last lesson. So I went to Hungary last night was a beautiful experience. I have pictures I have them online as well. You can go and see. So amazing Mashallah, you know, and they tell you that look, if you growls, then we have to keep you away from him. And it has happened where certain people when they had the encounter with the cheetah, the cheetah ground it wasn't looking good. So we did not allow for this Cheetah walk to happen. I said also to get a refund. And they said no, you still

01:07:13--> 01:07:14

don't get a refund.

01:07:15--> 01:07:27

But hamdulillah Cheetah was good, like me and hamdulillah and we spent a good time together, you know, taking pictures hanging out, and so on and so forth. I don't even know why I'm telling you the story.

01:07:30--> 01:07:31

Why am I telling you the story?

01:07:34--> 01:07:35

Sorry.

01:07:39--> 01:08:21

The strike of Omar Yes, the striker home and this is why I'm telling you the story. So you know what happened as I was getting comfortable with this with this animal? This creation of Allah. I was getting close, you know, cuddling with it and stuff. And the trailer says no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, you don't want to put your head too close. Because this animal even if it touches you, it will rip flesh of your skin. Touch if it touches you what is soft for the cheetah is mighty momentum for the human being. It's a it's a move with momentum it will remove skin from this is this is it touching you This is the strike. Right? It might play with you and just you know try and you cuddle

01:08:21--> 01:08:30

with it. Because what happens when you start cuddling with cats? What happens? They try and play fight with you. They play fight. But this is just that play fighting. You could get harmed. Don't do that. You know what I thought of the strike of

01:08:31--> 01:08:32

Viola horn.

01:08:33--> 01:08:45

I thought to Pamela this you can get this right. He's saying what message gives strength to a female to jump in the path of the strike of Omar I must read this message.

01:08:46--> 01:08:49

And when he read the message What happened? That was an uppercut farmer.

01:08:50--> 01:09:32

Because he was knocked out, isn't it? flatout 10 seconds. BELL RINGS came over. He goes instead of going to he went he intended to measure Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He went and says a Chateau La ilaha illallah wa Chateau a number amadora solo? This is it my dear brothers and sisters. So very quickly, propaganda failed. They went into harm. Who did they start harming Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shocking attacks to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam Abu lahab Abu Jamal and their cronies and it wasn't as if he was a nobody. He was somebody to them. sallallahu alayhi wasallam they started attacking him a law holster

01:09:32--> 01:09:59

and he would prostrate by the cover. And what would they do? They would sit and joke and say, who can take the abdominal waist and throw it on him? Who's going to do it? Look at this evil, evil, no principles. And somebody would say yes, I'll do it. And they would take it and he's in sujood and they would throw it at him. And look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Remember we spoke about emotion. No

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

response stays in sujood the Hadith says he never got up except after fall tomorrow the Allahu Allah, his daughter is how Islam empowers. It empowers you it doesn't make what will they say, you know, you don't think like this, the true Islam, the true belief, his daughter would rather than remove this off him, remove it off him sallallahu alayhi wasallam and lift her father up sallallahu alayhi wasallam Where are the Allahu Allah, and she may do it. She may do it and curse the Quraysh she may do I'm cursed the chorus three times against them. And this would affect them because the kurush they knew the cover. They knew the cover. They didn't like that she was criticizing them and

01:10:46--> 01:10:50

making against them and cursing them. It affected them. And this wasn't the only instance.

01:10:52--> 01:10:53

Even more

01:10:54--> 01:11:31

What did he do? He took his upper garment and strangled Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he did nothing sallallahu wasallam until Abu Bakar came Abubakar cave, look at wisdom, wisdom, wisdom don't give the enemy a chance to point a finger at you. They want a response. They want to see Muhammad retaliated. He gave a blowback they wanted they were looking for the opportunities. We threw dirt when we got up and he spoke of algo Ed, they were looking for it. This is how you look after Islam. You never give them a finger to point back at you. He remained silent

01:11:32--> 01:11:44

until Abu Bakar came and removed the strangle and said are you going to kill a man because he said his Lord is Allah subhanho wa Taala and he has evidence to back him up. Is this what you're going to do?

01:11:46--> 01:12:15

He was the son of Abu lahab hombre sobre la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tearing up a garment. Just imagine his innocently walking sallallahu alayhi wasallam and somebody pulling on him and pushing him and how would How would you feel? We haven't met Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam but even we love him sallallahu alayhi wasallam we feel it now when we say Subhan Allah we wouldn't want to see this happening to our Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wasallam harming him pushing him pulling him tearing his shed.

01:12:16--> 01:12:18

He was alimony May Allah

01:12:20--> 01:12:22

ash poo Hosni

01:12:24--> 01:12:26

in a law passed he was in the house in a law.

01:12:28--> 01:12:36

He complained to Allah. He asked Allah to deal with with our table or table. He asked a lot to deal with our table.

01:12:37--> 01:12:43

He made the drought that a dog should attack him. And this award accepted this do are because the son of

01:12:45--> 01:12:46

Abu lahab the son of Abu lahab

01:12:48--> 01:12:56

insha Allah, the son of Abu lahab what happened to him on a journey to Sham they stopped at a place at ally and started circling them a lion

01:12:57--> 01:13:07

and he remembered the duel of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says he remembered that he acknowledged that the dual of a man in Makkah has come through an amateur

01:13:08--> 01:13:09

and this lion took his head off.

01:13:11--> 01:13:13

This is what they did to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam then

01:13:15--> 01:13:16

they said let's expand the hurt.

01:13:18--> 01:13:46

They took it to those who accepted Islam is becoming known now. First Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah is giving a hoot they beat him so badly Subhana Allah you could not recognize his face of the Allahu and he was unconscious. His tribesmen came to save him. Remember, the tribesmen This is they had supporters? Abu Bakr radi Allahu unconscious when he wakes up. What's the first thing when he gains consciousness consciousness? He says, is the Prophet of Allah, okay, so

01:13:48--> 01:14:07

don't worry about my nose or whatever. How is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Subhana Allah and our brothers and sisters, brothers and sisters, when we wake up in the day are we where are we from the student of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam what is the Center for waking up? The first thing our love for Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:14:12--> 01:14:17

then we wake up and say Did we look out for the sooner Did we? Even if it's just saying Alhamdulillah hymnody. ohana.

01:14:19--> 01:14:24

Wally hinostroza to alpha waking up. Do we do this? That's for you to answer.

01:14:28--> 01:14:49

The last thing he thinks about before he sleeps is the wrongness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The first thing he does when he wakes up thinking of the wildness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam way is the Abubakar Enos that the last thing we do before we sleep is remember the son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the first thing we do when we wake up is remember the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

01:14:52--> 01:14:59

the Allah forgive us even miss Rudra the Allahu Allah for reading the Quran Beaton Mousavi bin Omar Allahu Akbar.

01:15:00--> 01:15:10

What a role model for our young brothers and sisters came from a family rich material well being financial standing had everything.

01:15:11--> 01:15:18

We say youth of principle, look at this young boy young boy says, You know what, I'm going to accept this message. You accept this message, you lose everything.

01:15:19--> 01:15:26

This message matters meeting matters more to me than everything. He was kicked out of his home. His mother removed him from her home.

01:15:28--> 01:15:33

He gave up the riches for what? La ilaha illAllah. Today, what do we say? No, you know what?

01:15:35--> 01:15:43

Let's see Java. Time, you know, you know, I'm expecting you know, this brother. He lends me money. If I go and tell him for salary. I don't upset him.

01:15:45--> 01:15:53

Not so I don't want to upset him. You know, he's doing wrong. No, I can't tell him. He pays my wages. I can't tell him he's doing wrong.

01:15:55--> 01:16:12

We're not saying cause harm to come to yourself, brothers and sisters, but I'm just sharing you an example. You can think I'm not saying do things to lose your jobs and so on and so forth. There's so many ways you can give us the hat, stealth modes, stealth that are right where the message gets across. We don't know how it got across.

01:16:13--> 01:16:14

But you get what I'm saying.

01:16:15--> 01:16:24

La ilaha illAllah before everything else, teaching us how to be principal we discussed yesterday the importance of being principled, we discussed VLAN and how he was tortured, or Mejia

01:16:28--> 01:16:31

would rope rope him like an animal

01:16:33--> 01:16:46

and drag him in the streets keep the children even worse. Remember, emotional hurt. This is physical and emotional. It hurts us brothers and sisters hurts the way human beings we have an ego. This is what was done to him.

01:16:47--> 01:16:51

And Bella says, I kept on saying I had because I knew they hated to hate.

01:16:53--> 01:17:01

I knew they hated this. I wanted to give them more. That was the best way to punish them was to hate Allahu Akbar. Because sticks and stones would not have harmed them.

01:17:03--> 01:17:19

You see emotional harm. Brothers and sisters emotional harm is tough. That's when you study how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was jeered and mocked and he remained silent. I don't think it was easy. I don't think it is. It's hard. Ask someone who's who's who's been backbiting somebody who has spoken against him ask him how he feels.

01:17:22--> 01:17:29

Right? He says I was saying that was the biggest I Islam. You know, these people I didn't like them.

01:17:30--> 01:17:45

But I didn't know how to fix them. Islam brought me the tool to fix them. This word I had I saw it was causing them to be even harder on me but I knew that heartless was coming with they were hurting or so I could tolerate the hurt because they were hurting.

01:17:46--> 01:17:55

Look at look at Reno regera. We say this is empowerment. Islam empowers you brothers and sisters Habad

01:17:57--> 01:17:58

of before that, Amar

01:18:00--> 01:18:41

Amar even Yasser Arafat family, the whole family, Mother, Father, Son, Muslims, being persecuted also so badly in the heat of the desert in the hot sun being lashed, being abused in front of the people. Son is watching what's happening to his parents. Why? Because they said La ilaha illa Allah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passes and he's feeling it. But he knows he knows that Islam is better for them. He says he to advise them to be patient. He says For indeed you're meeting places Jenna, be patient or family of yours. You go meeting places gender, your departure might be here, but you're meeting places.

01:18:43--> 01:19:01

And the sun has to see has to see his mother and father killed in front of him, his father, through severe beating his mother as fear through her. He has to watch this. But they never renounced the message. They never did it.

01:19:02--> 01:19:13

01:19:19--> 01:19:22

I lost concentration towards the end of saara. Don't let it make you sad. I have good hope in Allah. I have good hope in Allah inshallah Allah has accepted it. This is what we should do. Look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ensuring that they have good hope in Allah. Don't worry.

Don't feel nobody knows about your plight and you're going to be forgotten. No, you're going to be the most remembered today. You and I hundreds and hundreds of years after this happened to them. We sit here and shed tears

01:21:08--> 01:21:10

celebrating what happened to them.

01:21:12--> 01:21:14

Learning from what happened to them.

01:21:18--> 01:21:24

If need be Muslim, as the forward setter, those are my father so bring me people like them.

01:21:40--> 01:21:46

Take from them, this is why we sit and we studying this not to storytel brothers and sisters.

01:21:47--> 01:21:48

So that we become right.

01:21:50--> 01:22:00

So that we are true to the love we say we have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah brothers and sisters, we know that we're sort of masala who will cry on the day of their

01:22:02--> 01:22:16

cry when he sees the angels pushing his own boundary from his house. These are my people. on my deathbed, I was calling out to Allah look after my people. These are my people. And the angels don't know what they did after.

01:22:19--> 01:22:21

We know he's going to cry brothers and sisters.

01:22:22--> 01:22:24

But the message we have to ask is,

01:22:25--> 01:22:29

are we going to be the means of his happiness or the means of his tears?

01:22:32--> 01:22:33

That's what we have to ask ourselves.

01:22:34--> 01:22:36

What are we going to be the means of

01:22:38--> 01:22:43

his happiness or his tears? That will mean for this to be one of those moments.
