You know

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

whatever we learned it surely Of course, you know when he's

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

making up the to do that, but I believe, well these days, but I heard the question

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

a lot what

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

was shadowing and what happened to different people what I saw? Yeah, the

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

party people also during that one?

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

Yeah, that's a tough one. We're a little delayed

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

in the market, because we may have

00:00:46 --> 00:00:49

to do it all myself. What's up a lot

00:00:50 --> 00:01:03

of time in our academy for feedback. Yeah, the weather the federal law who said Either you're safer to comply with federal law, but what are you

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

what are some hypothetical Hamlet's in the long run at

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

was shot in the morning.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

But that hasn't been our focus.

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

This week, we will be starting a series on Super fully saw the 17th chapter of the Quran. This chapter also known as sewer revenue, so it was revealed that toward the end of the Meccan period adjustment before the end of the profits of the local I need to send them to Medina. Allah Allah says how that the Eskimo the army, he later may have received a copy and proceeded on Sunday development Hello.

00:01:52 --> 00:02:03

Glory means to the one who took his service will handle it by mites, from the sacred boss, to the Heartless boss, whose surroundings we have less.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:15

This verse is referring to the nice journey of Islam that the assumption that of our knowledge of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam,

00:02:16 --> 00:02:28

one of the most miraculous events to occur during the Prophet submission of a sunnah also eat the fence from which this chapter gets its name,

00:02:29 --> 00:02:33

and the occasion upon which it was revealed.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:39

What makes the release, elope the profits of the love money

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

and brought him outside of this house.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:55

there waiting for him was a force like preacher a rock, which the province of a loved one was mounted, and together with trivially traveling symmetrically

00:02:56 --> 00:03:00

in outputs, which is Jerusalem and Palestine,

00:03:01 --> 00:03:13

from their province all of a sudden, and the reality of Islam, ascended through the heavens, ultimately reaching the uppermost limits of creation.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:23

many amazing things happen along the way, the prophets of Allah who are making a certain level the other prophets in prayer.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:32

He was also shown that the paradise and hellfire and the fates of different types of sinners.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:56

When he reached the uppermost limits of creation, Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam directly, just as he had spoken to Musa by he stood up and gave the Prophets and we loan money to son, the obligation for all of us to pray five times every day, the same prayers we know today.

00:03:58 --> 00:04:05

The prophets of Allah morning was someone who was then returned to Mecca the same way He came all in one night.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:12

When he told people the next day what had happened to him it was hard for them to believe

00:04:13 --> 00:04:17

even the Muslims it was a major test of their faith.

00:04:18 --> 00:04:36

That's they have a brother probably a lot more confirmed his taping a Cintiq. To to his the mediums, belief in the prophets accounts of what happened that night. A nickname given to him by the Prophet himself a loved one it says

00:04:38 --> 00:04:51

the story of the Knights jerky and the opening verse of this chapter. draw our attention to the sacred status affects theta Upsilon in our faith.

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

Keep in mind that at the time of the night German Jerusalem was still nothing

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

We'd love to which the Muslims pray and it will remain a member for a few more years before all of us who have commanded that we pray for a cow instead

00:05:15 --> 00:05:32

is a testament to the holiness submission to the outside. That Allah subhanho wa Taala brought the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam their first during the nice journey, if a loss of power Allah had wanted to.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:44

He could have brought the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam directly from Africa, directly from Aqaba, he chose specifically to bring them to elephants first, specifically submission

00:05:46 --> 00:05:49

to Jerusalem, the land of the prophets.

00:05:50 --> 00:06:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us directly in the first step the entire area, not just mushiya Assad is blessing and sacred, saying the battle however,

00:06:05 --> 00:06:09

this is the land to which he brought me my baby Sudan migration.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:13

This is the land of this house, and Yahoo.

00:06:15 --> 00:06:34

This is the land that Musa alayhis salam was promised and like his followers struggle for this is a lender isa a sunnah and all the theocracy performed in the area. This is the land upon which the resurrection will take place. And we will be judged.

00:06:37 --> 00:06:38

in Assam

00:06:39 --> 00:06:43

no matter how sacred the place is.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:48

Our Muslim brothers and sisters are more senior.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

The prophets of Allah way.

00:06:52 --> 00:07:08

He gathered the Muslims together on the day of aid during his Farewell Pilgrimage. And one of the things that he said was, I think that the medical Well, what are all of the medical power on campus, the young people have, Visa people have the ability to have

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

certainly your blood

00:07:13 --> 00:07:27

and your wealth and your honor, are sacred and inviolable, just as sacred and inviolable as this day, in this month, in this lamp.

00:07:29 --> 00:07:32

Something that is sacred requires protection.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:43

And we are required in our way to guard and protect the blood, the wealth, and the honor of all muscles.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:52

If an outside force attacks our fellow Muslims, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us

00:07:53 --> 00:07:55

that it should bother us.

00:07:56 --> 00:08:09

He said method will be even better when you're dealing with are familiar with that our hope to him as of yesterday, either shutdown in Puerto Rico on the second destiny, the 70 with

00:08:11 --> 00:08:29

the believers or like a single body, in the ritual love, in their mutual compassion, and in their mutual gentleness. When one part of the body is afflicted, the rest of the body responds with a fever.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:33

This is a matter of faith

00:08:34 --> 00:08:41

that we are connected to one another, to such an extent that it makes us physically ill

00:08:42 --> 00:08:44

to see our brothers and sisters suffer.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:53

The process alone it also told us that among the customs, the inhabitants of Palestine

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

have a special status.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:21

In one of the narrations of a very famous Hadith the Prophet alayhi salatu salam service that says so even though we've been on mercy on Happy bohemian earlier the William tahmina level of metaphor level in the MaHA Sangha only, like last word were hacked tire to Angola. Well, he can call jasola walling among

00:09:22 --> 00:09:30

us upon some global fee based in office. What have now the race. So what will happen I think we'll set

00:09:31 --> 00:09:40

up group of myeloma will remain committed to the truth, defeating an enemy not harmed by those who disagree with them,

00:09:41 --> 00:09:44

nor those who let them down.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:48

Nor the adversity of the officer.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:55

Until a laws will and support comes to them while they are in that situation.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

Those who are around the profit will happen

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

Hello my name is sudden they said O Messenger of Allah. Where are

00:10:05 --> 00:10:09

the prophets of Allah one eight was supposed to be set in there in case of Nazis

00:10:11 --> 00:10:15

and around the vicinity of Bayfront mountains in Jerusalem.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:25

After the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Palestine came under Muslim rule during the reign of the other one.

00:10:27 --> 00:11:01

It is important to notice that when Obama came over the rule of the sea Palestine, the Jewish population crisis of Palestine was very small and limited to the rural areas. The reason for this is because the same Heraclius who ruled over Palestine during the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have massacred the Jews throughout the area, and forbidding them from living inside of Jerusalem.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:10

Once the Christian rulers have been defeated, Oromo officially invited us back to Jerusalem,

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

where they in orange limited peace next to Christians and Muslims for centuries, until the Crusades

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

with the Crusaders came,

00:11:24 --> 00:11:29

the Jews of Jerusalem and elsewhere fought alongside the Muslims to keep them out.

00:11:31 --> 00:11:52

They had good reason to do some. When the Crusaders eventually prevailed, they slaughtered both Muslims and the Jews indiscriminately. It wasn't until the trial was set up have been that Muslim rule was reinstated, and the Jews were once again officially invited back to Jerusalem to live in peace.

00:11:54 --> 00:12:12

We see that that Palestine app to its inhabitants are significance to us as Muslims on multiple levels. As lambda that Allah Allah has sanctified, it is our duty to honor it and to keep it holy.

00:12:14 --> 00:12:27

Its people, the people of faith, the people of telehealth, share a connection with us and is stronger than blood that is stronger than tribe or ethnicity.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:41

Its history as a symbol of the type of principled pluralistic society that Islamic law seeks to facilitate and maintain

00:12:43 --> 00:13:00

when people exhibit prejudice towards Islam and towards our city, we point to Palestine as Exhibit A to prove the justice and good outcomes of the Islamic system for all creation.

00:13:01 --> 00:13:30

And the any attack against this lamp against the people against the history is a prompt to Muslims and upon some people of faith everywhere and fronts to every decent human beings who values peaceful coexistence on Earth. I could accompany whoever was suffering poverty whatever what he said I will send you an equally personal fill in the wall all right.

00:13:42 --> 00:13:48

100 that are accepted? Or should I tell people he wants to go

00:13:49 --> 00:13:52

a long way without shutting down even when they shut me

00:13:54 --> 00:14:03

up? I will say that a minute to assume as they are a superpower, a savage by the way, was suddenly able to see evil.

00:14:06 --> 00:14:08

Since the final week of Ramadan,

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

our brothers and sisters in Palestine have been under attack.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:34

Many of us have seen the videos where innocents peaceful worshipers were savagely harassed and dispersed during Tomi prayers during the sacred time here in one of the most sacred places on earth.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:39

A short time after this of Unsa

00:14:40 --> 00:14:53

which is already the humanitarian crisis and the political crisis was bombarded with missiles for 11 days. The ceasefire being announced just yesterday.

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

In total, over 240 Palestinians were killed over

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

60 of them are children

00:15:03 --> 00:15:14

just this morning and another act of aggression and provocation. Israeli forces sort of messing that up. So again, and attack worshippers have to do my prayer,

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

injuring funky.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:20

When things like this happen,

00:15:22 --> 00:15:25

it's easy to get trapped in the blame game.

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

It's easy to pass the blame to various governments throughout the Western world and complain about their inaction.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:42

And this is Laura's thing that humans, we have the right to be frustrated.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:48

But focusing exclusively on what others aren't doing,

00:15:49 --> 00:15:57

can prevent us from looking in the mirror and holding ourselves accountable for what we can do.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:03

The reality is that every single one of us has a responsibility.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:07

According to their uploads,

00:16:08 --> 00:16:27

the prophets of Allah Hadith says, If any one of you see is an evil, that he must change it with his hand. And him he cannot, and he must change it because some and if he cannot, he must change it with his heart for his in his heart. And that was the lowest level of faith.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:41

Upon closer inspection, we here in the United States might have more responsibility to act than people in other parts of the world.

00:16:43 --> 00:16:58

This is because unlike other conflicts that affect customers worldwide, the United States federal government is directly responsible for the situation of Muslims and Palestine, through the military aid,

00:16:59 --> 00:17:02

and the political cover that it provides.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:26

As for military aid, the US taxpayers will get Israel a total of $38 billion of weapons over the next 10 years. This was an agreement that was made in 2016, between the destruction of the money that you and I work hard for an average of about $25 per person every year,

00:17:28 --> 00:17:31

is being used to provide the guns, the bullets and the bombs

00:17:33 --> 00:17:35

that kill our brothers and sisters, and house.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:39

That's your political cover.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:51

The entire world, including the American nation is ready to stop the embargo October and the illegal settlements in the West Bank. But time and time again.

00:17:52 --> 00:18:15

The United States federal government stands in the way and stops that from happening just last week, the United States box three, not one but three joint statements from the United Nations Security Council, that would have condemned Israel's successful use of course, and call for immediate ceasefire

00:18:17 --> 00:18:23

since 1972, the United States of Fox 53 similar resolutions

00:18:25 --> 00:18:31

here in central New York, we are represented at the federal level by freely.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:37

In the Senate, we are represented by Chuck Schumer, and by Kirsten Gillibrand.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:47

Chuck Schumer is on record saying that Oslo should be strangled economically. His words until they stopped resisting.

00:18:50 --> 00:19:11

After Houston Gillibrand in December of 2016, she urged them President Obama to veto UN Security Council resolution 2334, which condemned Israeli settlement building in the occupied Palestinian territories as a violation of international law.

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

If that wasn't enough, can pay spousal 17 Gillibrand co sponsored the Israel anti boycott Act,

00:19:21 --> 00:19:34

which would have made us a federal crime, punishable by a maximum of 20 years in jail for anybody to encourage or participate participates in the boycotts of Israeli products.

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

Thankfully, this legislation did not pass.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:59

In the House of Representatives we are represented currently by Claudia Tenney. Both her and her democratic predecessor Anthony from DC have consistently voted against the interests of our Palio Palestinian brothers and sisters. Both have voted to prevent the UN from condemning

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

illegal settlements in the West Bank. Both have voted to unconditionally support Israel with military aid. And both have voiced their opposition to boycotts against Israel in response to their aggression, and illegal activity.

00:20:17 --> 00:20:21

These are elected officials,

00:20:22 --> 00:20:51

they can be replaced and within the political culture of this country. If you are not happy with your elected representatives, you are expected and encouraged to change their minds for demonstrations and petitions or to replace them by electing someone else. By doing so, you are taking full ownership of this place that we call home

00:20:52 --> 00:20:58

and you are taking full advantage of the opportunities that this land offers.

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

Some of us in the Muslim community are concerned about the permissibility of these types of political activities. This concern is praiseworthy.

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

As Muslims, we should not get ourselves involved in anything until we have considered whether a lot of subprime was either will approve or rent for now.

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

But seeing as how these political activities are not pure acts of worship, such as Sona or cm, a default assumption of hustle

00:21:33 --> 00:21:36

is that they are permissible until proven otherwise.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:50

Some scholars particularly from the Arabian Peninsula have raised concerns that my voting for legislators, we are legitimizing the system that opposes the laws exclusive rights to legislate.

00:21:51 --> 00:22:09

However, the legislation in this country mostly deals with issues of honor those parts of law that are not specified by the city, such as foreign affairs, education and infrastructure areas that are decided by common interest.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:18

The right thing is to the main laws that were not found in this video. These were issues of honor

00:22:19 --> 00:22:21

of modern days and what is tropicals?

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

We are not violating the laws exclusive rights to legislate by choosing where to put a stop sign or traffic like

00:22:32 --> 00:22:38

if we don't focus because of the aspects of American law that oppose our sovereignty.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:48

We also give up our ability to shape the body according to our benefits, and in light of the general principles of the city.

00:22:50 --> 00:22:55

As for demonstrations and freshman political leaders, this actually has been produced.

00:22:57 --> 00:23:08

During the festive period with a hospital for being boycotted a group that none of us got together and decided they were going to grow separation leaders get public and demand and then some weight off.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:14

This was essentially a protest and the tactic worked.

00:23:16 --> 00:23:21

It made the corporation more desperate that they weren't easily agreed to the profits ultimatums lawyers,

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

were they they must have the voice on

00:23:26 --> 00:23:30

the paperwork which should have been written at home and the car had been destroyed

00:23:31 --> 00:23:41

the profits of a loved one even though some did not condemn these tactics, protests and pressure. It had been impermissible, he would have prohibited September.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:55

Finally, there is a lingering doubts in all cautious muscles, that if these political activities are ambiguous or unclear, without it be safer, to stay away from them.

00:23:56 --> 00:23:57

That was possible.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:06

But by the same token, we have to ask ourselves, How do we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not punish us

00:24:07 --> 00:24:10

for refusing to take action in support of our brothers and sisters.

00:24:13 --> 00:24:26

Especially considering that we live in a nation where we can actually have a voice and we can actually make a difference will the last 100 words Allah forgive us for not using that voice?

00:24:28 --> 00:24:29

When we looked at it from that angle,

00:24:31 --> 00:24:34

which course of action is really the safest?

00:24:35 --> 00:24:57

The very least we can say is that it is up for debate. We must have courage. We cannot remain on the sidelines just watching like the children of Israel when they follow who Saudi said I'm out of Egypt always err on the side and then the last step of this land is yours. All you have to do is go in there and tickets and I will support you.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

What was their reaction

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


00:25:01 --> 00:25:14

you the desert for 40 years? We have been wandering for long enough. May Allah guide us follows the right fashion. For myself, it was a matter of

00:25:16 --> 00:25:25

painting the ball in the laws of equilibrium. Maybe? Yeah, it's because I mean, the hammer sort of the way he was some people would have seen almost from a Sunday.

00:25:28 --> 00:26:13

Commercial later on, I mean, what are you working in the camera telling you about? What happened? Come out of the growing inequality. In FME, Machida ultomiris, Stanley was in a shift to see it was definitely an identity. What sort of a mini was a bit of an animal for him? They need all sorts of wearables for the fitness equipment. And although my latest deployment is you'll see that soon a lot of people working on my yam team has settled on the recipe. No one wants to come and tell you that is all they need.

00:26:15 --> 00:26:18

As we call it in what the bill was.

00:26:19 --> 00:26:31

I mean, you haven't done a lot in the last yesterday I believe was exactly what he said he put up with that show that he was only able to let go. That's what allows you have football

00:26:34 --> 00:26:35

while we met
