00:03:28--> 00:03:29

have patience,

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

endure hardships

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

a loss of

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

victory.

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

In

00:03:54--> 00:04:12

the last panel, into the agenda before you encounter the experience with the previous nations before you had encountered that experience, where the Prophet and his followers will continue to encounter and continue to experience hardships, and the grounds are shaken out of them.

00:04:16--> 00:04:28

Until the Prophet than the Messenger of Allah know Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. But we're talking about prophets and messengers in the previous stations and the followers of this prophet and messenger will say,

00:04:32--> 00:04:37

we've experienced hardships. We've experienced torture, we've experienced

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

injustice. What is the picture of

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

the picture of the last panel?

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Yes, that's the last panel attala had promised when you sacrifice a local branch of victory and a local fulfill

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

Promise by it's all about injuring hatches. It's all about staying persistent.

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

It's all about continuing on the path of

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

what is the victory of

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

victory.

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Sahaba

00:05:24--> 00:05:28

had experienced all sorts of torture and persecution,

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

because the quota was

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

because they believed in Allah azza wa jal.

00:05:36--> 00:05:43

They were punished. They were killed. They were tortured. Just because just because they said,

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

including

00:05:51--> 00:05:51

with the proper

00:05:53--> 00:05:53

medication,

00:05:56--> 00:06:00

not only verbally abused, and called all sorts of names,

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

and be made mockery of Your Beloved.

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

Yes, these days up walking down the street, or you come across some

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

Muslim guy back where you came back from get back where you came from.

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

Your Muslim is a new Muslim.

00:06:20--> 00:06:25

And puts us in a position where some people start thinking about changing the Islamic identity, because they feel the pressure.

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

If someone has a beard

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

against the changes,

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

because of the pressures, I feel, well, you're

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

experienced a lot more than what you're experiencing if you

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

had experienced by

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

experience sometimes, yes, Islam is under attack.

00:06:56--> 00:07:00

And yes, Muslims are in the spotlight. But they

00:07:04--> 00:07:11

have experienced a loss. Some of them were killed. Others were tortured, and others were punished.

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

experiences with his

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

his mother and father and my sister being killed.

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

What is the problem?

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

What are being punished by the people.

00:07:34--> 00:07:40

And the provider is salatu salam doesn't have much of a support to help them except.

00:07:42--> 00:07:42

And it says,

00:07:46--> 00:07:53

Have patience, or the family of yours. Because Allah subhanaw taala promised you the gentlemen, for

00:07:55--> 00:08:00

your endings gonna be the judge. Now, imagine this believing a man sees

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

being killed just because they said

00:08:13--> 00:08:23

African Muslim, he was a slave. And then he embraced this. Because he embraced Islam, it was torture. He was persecuted. It was more.

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

It was put right in the middle of the desert,

00:08:27--> 00:08:40

with a big massive rock on his body. And his team, say something against Mohammed, say something against Islam, believe in God believe in an ongoing, well being.

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

There is no god except Allah.

00:08:44--> 00:08:44

Allah

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

knows all the hardships and all the torture

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

and experience and it was still strong and perseverance.

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

He said,

00:09:06--> 00:09:19

the sweetness of a man had mixed with the pain and the agony of torture by the sweetness of a man has ever weighed and ever pellet, the agony of torture.

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

So Pamela,

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

and many examples that we can talk about.

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

many examples that we can talk about, including the problem

00:09:32--> 00:09:41

is praying next to the Kaaba. And then one of the chase of the people of grace will encourage another person to talk to the

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

government and try to

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

imagine, imagine someone who is probably considered to be one of the wealthiest people on the face of this earth. One of the scummiest of people grabs a cloth or grabs a gun.

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

The problem

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

and the problem

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

continues to have patience.

00:10:13--> 00:10:19

And then the people will start motivating one another for them to do something against the

00:10:22--> 00:10:26

trees, or the dead or the guts of it

00:10:31--> 00:10:32

is frustrating.

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

All these just because they sit in a hammock

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

and the people of

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

his house and his little daughter,

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

chick, she cleans the dust away from the

00:11:01--> 00:11:06

optimistic in the promise of Allah azza wa jal, which is the victor of Allah. And he says,

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

Don't worry, Allah will give me to follow optimism,

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

optimism,

00:11:20--> 00:11:25

to the extent that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was turning his back to the day.

00:11:31--> 00:11:36

He says, They job. You're the proper the Messenger of Allah.

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

Allah have chosen

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

to make it easier on us. We can't handle anymore.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

We can't handle the cinema.

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

Every single day, torture and torture and torture

00:11:51--> 00:12:01

and persecution and persecution of persecution. Just because we believe in Allah, we follow you. And we didn't believe in Allah that we didn't believe in you. I would believe that if you asked.

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

So ask Allah to make it easy on us. So the problem

00:12:07--> 00:12:12

gets up. And he gets up on a solo porcelain angry. And he says,

00:12:13--> 00:12:24

what are the Allahu taala says, By Allah, by Allah, it used to be to the people before you, whether he's to be brought up because they used to say,

00:12:26--> 00:12:34

to be brought by the enemies that they used to be dropped into two pieces. Just to turn back on Islam and nothing will turn them back on Islam and they used to be

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

ripping

00:12:41--> 00:12:49

back on Islam, and by Allah, Allah give me victory and fulfill his promise to me, and allows

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

a woman from the other side

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

coming to the Kaaba coming to Mecca

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

to travel from one city to another city,

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

living behind his hood, fearing

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

your

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

mistakes.

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

Your people in rushing hurry.

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

Allah promises victory.

00:13:31--> 00:13:34

And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is addressing this

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

the greatest

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

pleasure and

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

guarantee paradise

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

of the prophets and messengers.

00:13:53--> 00:13:53

And the problem.

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

Yes,

00:14:02--> 00:14:18

the universe and yes, the Messenger of Allah and yes, Islam is the true religion. And yes, Allah had promised victory for us as Muslims and yes, Allah had promised that the truth will prevail. And yes, I promise they'll give us an opening, but allow them to say now

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

it's gonna happen just because you said

00:14:27--> 00:14:30

there's a process and the process is yes.

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

And when you continue staying strong, Allah will give you victory, but

00:14:43--> 00:14:43

it's

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

better to come down.

00:14:50--> 00:14:54

Allah, Allah, Allah. What is the picture of

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

the statue

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

Addressing is addressing

00:15:07--> 00:15:25

those who sacrificed their life, nothing sacrificed that doesn't sacrifice everything that happened to love for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What would he say to us? How much can we sacrifice for Islam? If the way Russian Hari will look more in Russian hurry than then we want

00:15:26--> 00:15:35

to change things without even sacrificing. And yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala did fulfill his promise to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:37--> 00:15:42

41 years ago, when the last panel opens the first door

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

to the President Mohamed Salah.

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

chamada, from Mecca to Medina

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

13 years

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

in Mecca, facing and encountering all sorts of

00:15:57--> 00:16:12

all sorts of torments all sorts of punishments, all sorts of persecution. But then after 30, nice Allah subhanho wa Taala opens the first door of opening and victory. And that is to migrate from Mecca to Medina.

00:16:15--> 00:16:20

On your way to establish Islam and have the upper hand

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

and have the majority of Muslims there.

00:16:27--> 00:16:28

But it wasn't just

00:16:29--> 00:16:49

me the first key and the first door to opening but more to come. It wasn't just a dinner party, we'll just come suite and spend the proper customer data. And the migration itself is so big and so great. many examples of learn from the migration that teaches us the true sacrifice of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Sahaba

00:16:53--> 00:17:04

sacrifice, sacrifice for Allah and the Messenger of Allah and the religion of Allah. The true sacrifice, Islam is about sacrifice, not

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

getting what you want, not always getting

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

what you want.

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

There's got to be some sacrifice from time to time.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

I don't reflect upon the statement of the

00:17:22--> 00:17:26

Sahaba during that moment without being persecuted,

00:17:27--> 00:17:36

during being tortured, during that moment without being punished and killed. And the problem Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam says to them,

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

have patience, and don't rush

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

her patients.

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

My brother in

00:17:48--> 00:17:53

every country that you look at, most of the Muslims around the world have been persecuted.

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

We are losing track

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

of the different Muslim nations which are being persecuted.

00:18:00--> 00:18:16

By the time you think something's been sorted out something certainly something emerges. Whether you talk about Palestine, or what's happening in a Muslim country, and you're talking about Muslims in East Turkestan

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

and all around the track.

00:18:22--> 00:18:28

Muslims have been persecuted all around the world. Muslims are just always looking. When is the beach of Allah.

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

It's they're

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

being destroyed for

00:18:35--> 00:18:40

you make the sacrifice. He can't just sit and complain to nothing.

00:18:43--> 00:18:51

And during the process of reporting time and effort, you need to accept the fact that you're gonna go and you're gonna come across some hurdles, you're gonna come across some

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

tests and

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

it's not gonna come easy philosophy

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

is

00:19:01--> 00:19:01

easy.

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

You just want to straightaway

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

you have to sacrifice for the victory after sacrifice for the

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

money wanted to put the time and effort into showing

00:19:20--> 00:19:23

a student in your class just because he's a student in your class.

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

Study hard, pass the exam, be disciplined in class, I'll give you the road to end.

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

Not just because I'm Muslim, I expected to come It doesn't work that way.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

It doesn't work that way.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

When

00:19:45--> 00:19:54

people rush and hurry, that's a problem. I had the problem haematological cinemas addressing the Sahaba those who have sacrificed everything for the sake of Allah subhanho wa

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Taala migrated from Mecca to Medina.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

All right examples will portray

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

great examples with display.

00:20:08--> 00:20:19

During the journey, one of them is so hyper Ruby. So, Ruby is one of those companions. He's originally from Rome, that migrated from Rome to Mecca, and it was a carpenter.

00:20:21--> 00:20:25

He saved a lot of money, he became woefully out there.

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

And then he decided to follow the Prophet Mohammed Salah Allahu Allah uses

00:20:34--> 00:20:38

some of the properties migrated from Mecca to Medina, he also migrated.

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

But before his migration from Mecca to Medina, he decided to hire

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

the people

00:20:48--> 00:20:50

and they managed to cross paths with him

00:20:51--> 00:20:58

along the way of his journey to Medina, when they stopped me it was meant to be a strong and it was done to be a very good shop.

00:20:59--> 00:21:00

So they came

00:21:01--> 00:21:02

to come near me.

00:21:05--> 00:21:16

And he said, Bala, every single one of you accurate I am when it comes to shooting errors. So the same team, he came to us as a poor man, and he managed to come

00:21:17--> 00:21:19

back and they just think we're gonna let you go.

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

Follow your prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

He said, Would you let go?

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

would you think? Exactly.

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

Exactly. He

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

said, Yes, sir. He called them exactly

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

where

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

his Wolf

00:21:43--> 00:21:46

and he went. And he continued with his journey to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.

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

sacrifice.

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

And his nickname was

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

Medina and entering the mosque.

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

And before even

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

embraces

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

a ruler with a big small,

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

which is the nickname of

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

the transaction

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

of the sacrifice.

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

He had given up his wall, just to be with the Prophet Mohammed Salah.

00:22:37--> 00:22:49

We're talking about, we're talking about immense wealth here. We're talking about a lot of money. He has worked so hard for for many years by giving up that for the sake of a live the pleasure

00:22:50--> 00:22:53

of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. That's why I'm

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

willing to give up anything for the sake of Allah.

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

For the best, the maximum, what's the maximum I can give for Allah? What's the maximum?

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

What's the maximum?

00:23:13--> 00:23:17

As opposed to what's the minimum? I could give?

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

What's the minimum, always looking at the minimum?

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

Always looking at the smallest things that we can

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

always look at.

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

And everything is for us to kind of show.

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

But then

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

the next one?

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

What's the best?

00:23:41--> 00:23:49

What's the best to deliver? What's the best I could sacrifice with? What's the minimum? What's the minimum maximum? Did I

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

ask me the question is

00:23:54--> 00:23:57

I've been praying all this time, and it's not

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

as if it's a big shock in his wife.

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

I'll be praying soon all this time.

00:24:04--> 00:24:07

We're always looking for shortcuts, the easy way.

00:24:11--> 00:24:19

What's the maximum number good for Allah. On top of all this work in the contest on paper, Russian heavy hammer sauce,

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

my brothers and Islam.

00:24:23--> 00:24:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala almost proposed promise during our time,

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

without judgment, the promise of Allah

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

and Allah subhanho wa Taala promised that the truth will prevail

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

during every time in Iraq,

00:24:41--> 00:24:57

so I'm not really worried about the promise of Allah Subhana Allah because Allah azza wa jal fulfill his promise. I'm worried about my role, bit more sacrifice. What do I do to be part of that role to be part of the process as the

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

I want to start

00:25:10--> 00:25:15

the first place that you want to revive and you should have Islam to revive is in your life.

00:25:21--> 00:25:26

reverb is snapping your family's life, refurbish them in your household.

00:25:27--> 00:25:30

before he's not thinking of others think of yourself

00:25:32--> 00:25:35

as mankind, we want perfection for others,

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

to do the wrong thing to refer us to do whatever, one,

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

revive Islam in your life.

00:25:44--> 00:25:50

And know that the end of the day, it's all about sacrifice. So there are times that we'll encounter in our lives.

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

There are moments that we'll get through

00:25:55--> 00:26:04

some trials, you need to be strong not to fall. You need to be patient, not impatient. You need to be wise.

00:26:06--> 00:26:10

You need to be smart, not stupid. Because many times

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

that be stupid.

00:26:14--> 00:26:17

That's part of the test, the last panel politicians see your reaction.

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

Are you patient, or your wife?

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

Or you perseverance?

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

When I

00:26:27--> 00:26:32

when I need to be sincere, patient patience,

00:26:33--> 00:26:37

perseverance, strong. And then Allah subhanaw taala, making

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

homosassa.

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

Stay patient.

00:26:47--> 00:27:05

Stay steadfast. Yeah, people in Russian hiring. Be wise. My brothers in Islam, we need to have patience. Wanted to be strong, not just for the hands and walk or something to happen, you make something happen, Islamic

00:27:07--> 00:27:07

show

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

because it is the moment

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

to see.

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

And you need to ask yourself that question.

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

sacrifice, minimal struggle

00:27:34--> 00:27:35

to give us victory

00:27:40--> 00:27:47

or not. If it's not, then my brother in Islam, you need to start stepping up and you need to start working towards being worthy of

00:27:50--> 00:27:57

victory. And it comes with sacrifice. I'm talking about things in general. I wanted to be more detail.

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

And what exactly.

00:28:01--> 00:28:06

But the first thing to start with as a Muslim is to revive Islam in my life, I

00:28:07--> 00:28:14

will always think of others. He should be good. He should be righteous. He should be pious.

00:28:19--> 00:28:27

He shouldn't be patient, and he shouldn't be perseverant What about you being patient and perseverance. It all starts from our souls from me as a Muslim.

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

And that's why

00:28:32--> 00:28:41

it was the beginning of the icon from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But just because there was an opening, it doesn't mean the struggle ended on the contrary, the struggle, escalator

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

the struggle increase.

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

The sacrifice now is more in demand.

00:28:51--> 00:28:55

And if you look into the second phase of the, of the prophecy of the Prophet Mohammed Salah,

00:28:56--> 00:28:58

the second phase of the

00:28:59--> 00:29:05

center, which is in Medina, you realize there was a lot more sacrifices and a lot more

00:29:07--> 00:29:11

struggles were given for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:29:14--> 00:29:23

amongst us you understand and ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from amongst those who sacrifice and struggle for the sake of Allah 1141 years ago.

00:29:26--> 00:29:33

If there's one thing that we should take out of this cookbook, is to learn that Islam and the examples and lessons that we learn from the user have

00:29:34--> 00:29:40

to recognize that there is an Islamic killing that that's part of identity. Many Muslims don't even know

00:29:42--> 00:29:45

why, when the Islamic key 1541

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

privacy of the family is also even the death of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose to mark the first year of the Islamic calendar to be the history

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

To the importance of this great a remarkable event with the Prophet Muhammad SAW some of the Sahaba migrated from Mecca to Medina.

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

Every Muslim dreams to be

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

there's a knee

00:30:23--> 00:30:23
