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

Smilla hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah whether it was B woman, Wada, or bat

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

I would like tonight

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

to spend my talk to you

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

about reflections in relation to

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

what we all witnessing an unfolding in front of our eyes, and Plaza

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

and in Palestine,

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

and we take this to a bigger

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

scale. And to connect this to many other

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

issues and

00:00:43--> 00:01:06

incident that we witnessed in our life and a personal level, or as the own man in general, as Muslims, at large and also for today and for tomorrow, and something that you can walk out in sha Allah to Allah tonight with a better understanding of what is happening

00:01:07--> 00:01:15

and in such crisis and what is our duty and our responsibility, when such crisis and calamity strike.

00:01:17--> 00:01:38

You know, I would like to start by saying, Allah says in surah Al Imran, yeah, you hadn't had the inner Amendola to Hindu wala to his Anwar and to Ilona in Quran to Momineen. Or who you believe, do not feel down. Don't feel

00:01:40--> 00:01:49

hasn't, which is first day, no, don't feel you're less, don't feel that you are

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

basically law,

00:01:55--> 00:02:51

don't feel that don't feel like heaven, which is the extreme sadness, which is threw you into a dark depression. To not do that. And that's to, you know, it might happen. It might get you thrown into a level or a situation where you feel so lusts, when you think less of yourself, when you think you know that you're humiliated. When you think that you're completely defeated. When you feel like you are completely powerless, you might mean thrown in the corner, mean knocked down. But with this verse telling you to not ever stay in that state, you always stand up again, you always fight back. And remember Muhammad Ali, the famous boxer, said once, when he asked about winning and winning the

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

game, he said, winning is not about not you never get knocked down.

00:02:57--> 00:03:37

Winning is all about your ability to stand up again in your feet, and to fight again. So there's so many things will be thrown in you and your life, but your ability to stand up and to take advantage of this, and to rise over that what really this verse say what untold unknown, you are higher, you are better, you are, you know, in a much higher position and state than what you think you are including two minute if you truly believe her knees versus was revealed after the Muslim last four attempt any

00:03:38--> 00:04:29

I don't want to say complete lost, but they lost the initial losses of the Battle of a hit of a hit. When the Muslims were defeated. And many companions were killed. And the enemy were able to reach the prophets of Allah Salim and to put the processor and even live in danger. And that battle of Quran came to tell them that, you know, even if you lost a battle, it doesn't mean that you lost the war. Even if you lost one round, it doesn't mean that you lost the whole entire, you know, fight. And that's what it is. You might be defeated in one fight. But it doesn't mean that you lost the whole or one round but doesn't mean you lost the fight. It doesn't mean that you lost the war. And

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

even though this verse was revealed to the Sahaba in relation to what happened in the Battle of health, but it is something that we should reflect upon today and something related to us in every threat to the Muslim ummah and every generations and when you look at what's how they respond to what's happening in Azusa, you will be amazed and you can make that connection between the Quran and this verse. And what you see today in was that even when they were you know

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

This place, they lost their loved one, they lost the most important thing in the life of the family. Yet the strength yet the putting them together, yet they attained and Allah subhanaw taala yet you always hear Alhamdulillah it's amaze you. And I'm sure you all have seen the trend and social media. How many people have accepted Islam? How many people that they became fascinated by Islam, just by what, just by watching how many people in the USA after they lost almost everything, everything, they still said hamdulillah thankful Allah, they still feel that they did not lose that you know what we're staying we're standing fast. We are holding our brown. We're not giving up. This have led

00:05:49--> 00:05:59

a lot of people to eat. What kind of religion is this? That makes someone just lost his loved one his wife, his father, you know his children and yet is so strong to say hamdulillah

00:06:01--> 00:06:15

when we meet someone like I told the brothers to then help them Jamaat one of our community members were not far away from us at all. Last 16 persons members of his family in one hit

00:06:16--> 00:06:27

in one hat 16 All his uncles and cousins are most of his uncle and cousin. They were gathering not in the house of Lhasa and they were had an all of them died

00:06:30--> 00:07:01

and he said I'm talking to my mother and to my father and Elijah on the phone seeing what's happening and oh my father and the Messiah Kenya and Irani and when he telling me in his uncle two days ago was killed in an airstrike as well yet this brother when he talking to me even though he's far away from this, you know, from from the line was was talking to Mr. handler, I said, Well, why that's hard. 16 dying, is it just No. 16 is tissue

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

my motto

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

was tissue when he still needs to shoot any die as Jade's a murderer. I got a Goosebumps

00:07:13--> 00:07:16

I said wow, what what a strength

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

because this shade is different than just somebody die.

00:07:22--> 00:07:31

While at the seven and Latina Patino visa vie rely on what don't think that those who die from the sake of Allah just a debt

00:07:32--> 00:07:43

and ironically, and for kaha Rahim Allah, the Muslim jurists talk actually about when you send Misha hint, Min OT, Rafi Beatty,

00:07:44--> 00:07:58

Yanni, is it true to is it right from a football perspective, from a technical perspective, to say that the one would die at home is still shade or shade, only the one would die in the battlefield fighting

00:07:59--> 00:08:15

the hurt of a superhero, Alyssa, if the one die at home, was killed by the hand of the enemy who are engaged in fight with the Muslims. Every day every person die. Even those who die in their homes consider shahada

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

as the talking under describing what you see today, can a normal cell phone and rock and roll Julio?

00:08:26--> 00:08:37

It's amazing. How when someone like that, well, that how he will feel that you know what, yes, we might lost something. But our string is much, much bigger.

00:08:38--> 00:09:03

And you know why that Muslim, don't feel less. Don't feel humiliated. You always have that dignity and strength. Number one, because we lost what we lost if it's a property, if it does lives, if it is, you know, land, whatever you call, you know, a job, whatever I lost in my life. If I lost a piece of meat in LA, I didn't lose it.

00:09:05--> 00:09:20

Because it's preserved for me out there ahead of me. So I didn't lose it at all. If I lost something for the sake of Allah. Yeah, no, it means it's not lost. It's preserved for you to sit and that's the beauty of the intention.

00:09:22--> 00:09:41

That's the beauty of you. That's why a man came in the night want to give sadaqa in Ibiza, Saddam said telling us he survived a woman he gave her the money. He thought she's in the hungry outside in that house. He gave her the money. The next day he found out that this woman was prostitute.

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

Next day, he said let me give another solid. Hey, go out and see somebody in the knights and muscaria and in the night may must be hungry. And they look like there isn't you know what? I need to give him the money to this person. Then next day inherit that this person is a thief

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

Actually he goes to the light still.

00:10:03--> 00:10:13

A third day he gave it to another person. So okay, that's my third night, my third attempt. Then he gave it to someone but he found out that this person is actually rich man.

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

He just a bagger, but he's really rich man.

00:10:18--> 00:10:37

The man felt like he lost his money. He wasted his money. He spent it in the wrong way. Guess what the process on him said? The prophets of Allah Salam said that these all three were taken by Allah the same manner Allah takes the set up of anyone else.

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

Because it's we're all done for the sake of Allah.

00:10:42--> 00:10:48

All them for the sake of Allah Allah for the accident from them as if it's like any other setup.

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

While

00:10:53--> 00:11:04

those who gained those who transgress those who killed those who abused those will cross the line

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

they don't gain anything.

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

And this isn't live in general this isn't live in general

00:11:13--> 00:11:20

look at those who transgression against other liquor those who violate other people's rights. They don't get anything

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

they might get a temporary when a temporary joy

00:11:28--> 00:11:34

but uncanny valley him hassle right maybe you crossed the line one day in your life

00:11:35--> 00:11:38

and maybe you gain something out of that crossing the line.

00:11:39--> 00:11:44

But I promise you because Allah did the promise that you will never enjoy that in the long run.

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

And in the end you will regret and in the end will fire back against you.

00:11:52--> 00:11:57

In NEMA Canary la hepco Wanna colony Lila head I have

00:11:58--> 00:12:10

whatever for the sake of Allah will remain. And whatever then for other than his sake will not start will not remain will vanish and it will not only vanish it will fire back on you.

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

We know that also an acumen and with tapping. We don't feel less we don't feel human and we don't feel we don't throw ourselves that deep, paralyzing state of depression

00:12:28--> 00:13:15

at least something above your ability but need don't. You basically fight back as much as you can. You just don't give up our hope and ultimate Allah's mercy. Why? Because we know that Allah subhana wa Tada said, when we do and we're not Inlet in a strawberry fulfill Otto, when a gyro whom ima want to drive Anwar defeat, that Allah subhana Ghana made a promise that those who have been looked down upon, you know what we call today the underdog, the people who have been looked down upon the people who have been abused, that Allah subhana wa Tada out of his favor will give them eventually the victory will give them eventually the ability to rule and to regain power again, when a janitor whom

00:13:15--> 00:13:32

Inma and they will be the one who will inherit, you might not see it yourself. But generation down on the road that will be in the end of the day, the prophets or Sanlam said that Allah said, allow give unlimited being the outcome is for the good for the righteous people.

00:13:34--> 00:14:04

In the end of the day, the winner will be the righteous, the winner who aren't on the side of the truth, not the side of abuse. We know we don't go into that state. Why the state of that deem losing hope and Allah subhanaw taala or feeling less? Why? Because we know and then our hero that too. So in the ANA dunya nakasongola JANA hubba. What Anil athel hodl, what have

00:14:05--> 00:14:53

we remember, and we know and that's what those people's expressing in these all these videos and on social media, we have that confirmation, that tip in the heart that Allaha is much, much better. That's an AHA is we're going to remain. And this dunya is, is a place of struggle. It's a place of test is not a place of reward. Keep that in mind. My talk today is not only about Elizabeth, it's about Judaism. It's about you reward. It's about your battle. It's about your struggle. It's about our struggle, all of us together. It's about our life. Because what Allah Subhana Allah allow to happen in one part of the world is for all of us to reflect. It's all of us to think

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

free. Nilaya Jimin had the line that Eva, Allah making this incident and learning

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

opportunity for us to learn from it for ourselves before anyone else for us to grow before someone else grow, for us to change before even someone else to Somoza, someone else change.

00:15:15--> 00:16:04

So when you see that Allah subhanaw taala, telling us that will ask you to hide all of Karl Archaea is we'll go what's going to remain, and the dunya will go into vennett Radish. Remember this when you make your choices in life. Remember this when you make your choices in life, when you make your decisions, when you plan. When you do what is haram. And what you need what is Wajid when you leave something for the sake of Allah, when you do something for the sake of Allah, that this is not going to remit when you go through hardship, calamity, something hard. Remember that this is temporary. What? 10 years, 20 years, 30 years 40 years of struggle. 50 years of struggle, then what? Then

00:16:04--> 00:16:20

forever reward you to be a Seanna dunya yomo PM, the worst man ever lived in the visual desert? Can you imagine a man live in poverty with disease with humiliation with injustice? Whoo, I'd already gotten the go

00:16:22--> 00:16:32

for us, both in not Saba will be given one day. Sorry, one day in paradise, one dip in paradise.

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

Then he will ask have you seen any hard time in your life? He said No, y'all are by having not

00:16:39--> 00:16:45

just seeing that one. Don't be this easy. I remember when he first me and my family we went to

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

Lake out

00:16:49--> 00:17:22

you know, Lake town in the town of mountain, it's actually a volcano covered with water. It's one of the biggest lake we have the United States, Lake Tao of its leaked. Let's say somebody, if we pour all that thou we take all the water and get it out of Lake doubt. It will cover the whole entire state of California with about seven inches of water the whole entire state of California just for you to imagine the size of that lake. Okay. So the driving up all the way in the mountain to that lake is not an easy drive.

00:17:23--> 00:17:30

But I was still remember, I still remember when I drove all the way up and a foot I only see it when I saw it

00:17:32--> 00:17:41

after this drive and me and oh go look and lubes and I don't like heights gets scared. So after I arrived to the top and a so they kicked out.

00:17:42--> 00:18:03

I said I don't think for a second at that point about the road and the difficulties of the road all forgotten because of the beauty of that scenery. That's the whole point. He will forgot about bringing this dunya not with entering Gen not just the dip and out

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

for kW niche for headed EBIT. So what do you think of someone who live there forever

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

we need to learn

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

we need to confirm that with ourselves.

00:18:21--> 00:18:24

That Allah subhanaw taala did not promise a calm journey.

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

But promise a safe destination.

00:18:29--> 00:18:47

Allah did not promise that our journey will become a nice but Allah promise that our arrival will be to something so safe. So calm, so beautiful. In Can you hang it all bigger content from will be the Halacha nella in Santa Fe cupboard.

00:18:49--> 00:18:55

Allah says we created human beings and we meet their life full of struggle, hardship

00:18:57--> 00:18:58

challenges.

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

But these challenges, it's up to you to allow them to bear you or to carry you

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

allow them to destroy you or to strengthen you

00:19:14--> 00:19:16

hear in Texas, it was heard about a farmer

00:19:18--> 00:19:21

who had a big crack in his land

00:19:22--> 00:19:24

and his dog fall in the crop.

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

And the dog was Miskin. You know it's David Stark was slick on kind of unconscious.

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

So the guy was so sad. He called on the DoD no no sound nothing.

00:19:38--> 00:19:47

So he said you know what? I will not let any animal suffered from this again. She bring all the sand and he tried put the sand in the crock to fill the crap with the set.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

What happened the dog was not dead. But it was down deep and that crack and the land and the ground and he seen the sun coming

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

doubt on him. He's going to be buried alive. But smart. Every time the sun come down, he will shake it off and he will jump on the telephoto set. Every time the scent come down, he will shake it off I mean jumble the toggle the scent, everything will shoot he will shake it off and then he will jump on the thumb of Allah sent until the sand that meant to bury in was the sand that resurrected in

00:20:25--> 00:20:35

the sand that intend to cover him and to bury him in that crack and that darters it was the same thing that he used to climb up to the light and to save his soul.

00:20:38--> 00:20:52

Don't be buried don't let the ugliest incident bury your your hope or bury you with it. Or to suck you into the Dark Hole set up that you attained in Allah subhanho wa Taala has no plan.

00:20:54--> 00:21:41

Among the thing that is important for us when we see this happening, we remember what Allah Subhana Allah says, Where does he the mean Come shahada, Allah, sometimes he wants to choose certain people to a certain place that they will never reach by their deeds. That's why he chose from them who will die as Shaheed who will be elevated, he will be risen, he will be honored in the Day of Judgment. Allah will not give you the word just because of your name. Just because Allah wants you to get that word. That's not how it works. When it comes to the word, it comes like this, when it comes to the word of the matter. Allah want this to be black one, this to be red one this to be that he being

00:21:41--> 00:22:24

that there will be. But when it comes to judgment, now it's not like that, not just by the woods, by the wisdom and the justice. So you will get what you which you which you basically you have to put the effort you have to put that to do the job. So in order for you to receive what I was taught that I planned for you, so sometimes we slack. Sometimes we don't deserve that sometimes we don't see what Allah sees for us. So what happened, Allah put in front of you in these challenges, he put you through this hardship and calamity, I will not leave you alone. He will aid you, he will support you, He will guide you, He will open your heart he will motivate you so you will start acting or you

00:22:24--> 00:22:44

started displaying what patience suburb gratitude, you will start displaying that trust in Allah subhana dal and because of always meaning you reach to a level you would never ever reach if you left without the test. If you would left without that struggle. If you love to live that easy life

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

we're talking them income Shahada.

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

Allah chose you for himself.

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

My brothers sisters,

00:22:56--> 00:23:06

one of the beautiful things that we should focus on in this crisis is to make this crisis bring us back to basics

00:23:07--> 00:23:25

make this crisis bring you back to fun and sometimes these crisis and these tasks is to shake your Eman is because the last part that I want you to go back to the basic to the fundamental to the foundations that your Eman is based on it.

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

Like knowing the relationship between the dunya and the after.

00:23:33--> 00:23:41

Knowing what a dunya means and what it actually means. To understand the concept of Kabbalah what Allah decreed upon people

00:23:42--> 00:23:53

to know that Allah is Shaheed witnessing yet is Hakeem or wise yet he is or Rahim you're not going to be more merciful than Allah

00:23:54--> 00:23:58

yet to Adam just how we powerful

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

a deal capable rough man had pinion alpha is the Most Merciful in this dunya and the alpha

00:24:08--> 00:24:13

and knowing and realizing that this block this dust calamity

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

test people's Eman

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

I'm amazed,

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

amazed by two different images and pictures that I see.

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

One the amount of sober and your pain and tranquility and peace and serenity that I see in the heart of so many people in the midst of God calamity, even though you would think that they have every reason

00:24:42--> 00:24:47

to be angry to be broken down to be rid of acting unreasonably.

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

But you see, in most of the cases the opposite, not saying everybody's going to be the same, but many cases 1% And in the other hand, you see people will fall away from this case

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

Armitage responding in such a weird way

00:25:05--> 00:25:14

yen some will some come and ask me question and all we I get this question from people live with us here and I mean with us in the West

00:25:15--> 00:25:23

or following from the Colombia it could be in some Muslim country to the ask is it yes why Allah I thought I do that for a

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

while all our children to die

00:25:26--> 00:25:46

yeah that's really not fair how the system those people are suffering like that on this kind of when I was by that I will bring his victory when this will stop when I was without yet and he asked questions with the sense of questioning Allah doubting ALLAH SubhanA Dawn

00:25:47--> 00:26:00

and he said you're having me you are living in the shade you're living in your comfortable lie on their couch watching your Netflix after this kind of you know show on this kind of nutshell but this kind of like a you know, exhibiting this anger and you go back to your normal life

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

I'm so glad that you're not unless

00:26:09--> 00:26:16

you know those people who like any their Eman is like odd I don't know what to like cupcake Messiah column

00:26:18--> 00:26:22

No, like any pressure they will just collapse

00:26:25--> 00:26:30

any pressure I said Subhan Allah Allah knows who to test

00:26:32--> 00:26:35

our test people according to their Eman

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

that's why sometimes

00:26:39--> 00:26:42

this the test of such incidents

00:26:43--> 00:26:48

can be even much harder for people far away from where the rockets falling

00:26:50--> 00:26:55

from the destruction can taking place from the collapse of the building.

00:26:57--> 00:27:02

There is some people imminent collapse worse than the collapse of the buildings and rasa

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

there is some people's Eman shook

00:27:07--> 00:27:09

under doubts

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

basically

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

overcome

00:27:14--> 00:27:19

their hearts more than the shaking that haven't bite

00:27:20--> 00:27:30

the tongue from the basically the the rockets and the bombs and and the grenade and all the thing that taken place over there

00:27:32--> 00:27:40

those who worship I was Fidella at edge yeah but Allah Allah How to Follow us on some people worship Allah and the horrendous edge

00:27:41--> 00:27:51

and again is not only in the world this is our identity to so many people at the edge you know when you deal with anything while you're out on the edge you never succeed

00:27:53--> 00:28:00

you only if I deal with you we go to business I deal with you while I'm at the edge just waiting for it to fall waiting for you to prove you wrong.

00:28:01--> 00:28:05

You will fall the solution will come apart husband and wife

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

father and son friends

00:28:13--> 00:28:19

governors and gut and government and citizen that's how we deal with each other we might succeed

00:28:20--> 00:28:25

What about a lot when I was any test anything I just gave up?

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

Yeah, you got a phone

00:28:29--> 00:28:32

and given me a lot of Allah Allah Asha

00:28:33--> 00:28:36

you worth nothing and Allah Zeiss, if you fall

00:28:37--> 00:28:57

in Allah was worried that I was not going to His kingdom and His power is not gonna, you know, became less just because of you. That's why that arrogant that some people come when with when this kind of things happen. It's all surprising versus the opinion that people have. I remember I watch

00:28:59--> 00:29:09

a sister or a program, a documentary about a lady who did a documentary about people who are displaced in Syria.

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

What's interesting, the lady who did this documentary I forgot is a BBC who saw like a lot of these like European

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

news outlet.

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

She became Muslim.

00:29:25--> 00:29:51

After she did the documentary, when the refugees the sewerage. And the reason she became Muslim because she said she went to and it's in the video and the documentary. She walked into this lady. She has five kids, all orphans, and she was bringing some food and stuff like that. And she said, I don't need this food or money. There is this lady down the dawn of the road. She deserved more than me.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

So that he Porter could not understand that. You're orphan. You only have a tent. You don't have an income. You're

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

widow, your kids are orphans and you're a widow.

00:30:03--> 00:30:20

And you get nothing in tents like the water inside the tent, and it's freezing cold, you'd barely have something to cover your your kids with your body. And yet he said telling me this family has deserved this subtle commode, this charity more should Yes, just go check them out, you will see that they're worse than our situation.

00:30:23--> 00:30:28

For someone to feel that way, that strength, that's cool.

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

That's victory.

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

That's your pain.

00:30:35--> 00:30:39

And she's that somebody I never seen in my life to anyone in my life.

00:30:41--> 00:30:46

Those who basically went back to the basics, and that would make them win.

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

When Allah's victory is coming,

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

I have no problem with this question.

00:30:56--> 00:30:59

As long and is not initiated out of doubt,

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

or out of frustration with Allah.

00:31:06--> 00:31:14

Again, I have no problem with this question. As long as this question is not coming out of doubt, or frustration with the law when you got to

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

understand that the victory can be expected and people ask about the Sahaba of the law and on did that the Sahaba the line is fleeting and all the line said.

00:31:29--> 00:31:35

So the hubbub draw the line said, we came to the province of southern white he is in Mac

00:31:36--> 00:31:40

in front of the cab and the Sahaba at that time used to be tortured by the people of

00:31:41--> 00:31:47

Seattle sort of low, and at the stun sitting there hadn't. Why didn't you ask Allah to grant us victory?

00:31:49--> 00:31:53

Why didn't you ask him also to grab as rich? He wants the victory?

00:31:54--> 00:32:09

He asked him when this victory will come the company and in the be SallAllahu sallam said to him no law and no ken Coleman to stage it wasn't that you are people who rush for victory. This wait

00:32:12--> 00:32:16

just let that last one I'll do it in his way you do your job and you leave the rest for our last panel tie

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

and a lot of yield. I'm happy to do that before noon. John Nadeau and M deckle. No, Nathaniel, Nadine following Corbin econ. must set Roman bucks

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

or bottle Oh, you think he will enter paradise without being tested

00:32:41--> 00:32:47

without being tested and put on trial, tested what with quickness and hardship.

00:32:49--> 00:33:07

And even afterward was tested by hardship he used to be lashed. The guy who used or the man the God in the jail who used to hit him afterward, and lashes back BAM Wallah who couldn't too adorable will be salt, low bar up to wara Fetullah awesome to have your pardon head

00:33:08--> 00:33:16

if I would have lashed an elephant in the same way I used to head out of breaking the elephant's back.

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

He was hit so hard, he was torture so hard.

00:33:24--> 00:33:28

And when the torture stopped, and he was released from jail,

00:33:29--> 00:33:35

and the ruler changed three rulers after three rulers for three rulers he'd been going through suffering

00:33:37--> 00:33:39

how's the rest being in prison?

00:33:41--> 00:33:55

After all this the fourth one who came was someone who loved it even afterward, who loved the sin said even Muhammad son became a close and he received some gift from the and reward from that government.

00:33:56--> 00:34:05

When they sold the gifts and the food and the clothes and the money. He said Well law he had the I shouldn't do it Yemen CRT and doesn't.

00:34:07--> 00:34:19

He said these gifts and this money and these things coming from the government is for me harder to deal with. Then the head of the Madison a jail when I used to be tortured in jail.

00:34:20--> 00:34:23

That's another fitna That's a harder test.

00:34:25--> 00:34:33

Yes, almost Waipara maybe test some people were hardship in Colombia t test to have another test.

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

Everybody will be tested according to the DEA.

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

The point is,

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

I was like I said

00:34:43--> 00:34:49

Hatay accord or rasuluh and Medina Amman, Houma, Mehta and masala

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

Allah said that we will be in the hardship to the level to the level that the Prophet and the the prophets and therefore

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

followers will say when is the Nasr of Allah

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

when is the victory of Allah is coming.

00:35:08--> 00:35:19

So when you reach to that level that they did not say the victory, they said the victory of Allah, because they knew that the victory only comes from Allah.

00:35:20--> 00:35:28

They didn't see when the pain will start the finish. When the torture of banana, the waiting for the victory that granted by Allah.

00:35:30--> 00:35:31

They don't doubt Allah

00:35:33--> 00:35:46

because the noise, the one will give the victory. They don't have doubt they don't have frustration and anger at Allah now, but they are looking forward for it. Looking forward to witness if they wouldn't be lucky,

00:35:47--> 00:36:00

as we all would love to see and witness the day when the victory of Allah comes to those who have been oppressed, or those who have been displaced, for those who had land was taken away. For those who are homes been taken away from them.

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

Yes, we all would love to see that

00:36:05--> 00:36:10

we might do and we might not someone else will do. And we will witness that.

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

You know

00:36:16--> 00:36:20

one of the thing that it's important here to see and to reflect upon when we say

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

when is the victory of Allah,

00:36:25--> 00:36:40

one of the principal that I would like you to remember that the victory of Allah in many times in our mind and our heart, one shape, one formula of victory. But actually the victory of Allah comes in many different formats.

00:36:41--> 00:36:42

And many different ways.

00:36:43--> 00:37:02

You'll always think of victory as you defeat the enemy. And you basically break your enemy and you take over the line take over, you know, strip them from power, that's one form of the victory and it's a very clear form of victory. But when you have explored the Quran and Sunnah you will find so many other concepts of victory.

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

For instance,

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

one of the victories

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

it is

00:37:12--> 00:37:13

to be able to

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

deliver that message.

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

And for your message to prevail, even if you completely lost yourself, even if you completely defeated even if you been erased from the face of the earth.

00:37:35--> 00:37:40

They might kill you, but they cannot kill you message.

00:37:43--> 00:37:46

Look at the example of the famous story

00:37:47--> 00:37:51

of the young man, the young man who

00:37:52--> 00:37:59

was doubting between the Sahaba the magician's and the righteous worshiper.

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

And he doesn't know which one of them is upon the truth.

00:38:05--> 00:38:09

Is it the magician? Or the one who worshipped the worshiper?

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

And I have it

00:38:12--> 00:38:40

as stories long, I'm sure you know what if they you know I'm talking about this right? anybody doesn't know the story, or the story basically, this young boy was doubting and almost want to give him this power to be able to mention Allah's Name and to heal people. So the king wants him to he said, How can you mention a name of a god other than me? He said no, I believe in Allah is Ever been believe it. So the king tried to kill him. So every time he tried to kill him, he survived.

00:38:42--> 00:38:43

Every time he tried to golf, put them in a

00:38:44--> 00:38:55

small boat to go in the middle of the lake. The boats are shaking, the soldier fall off, and he comes back to the King put at the top of the mountain throw him off the mountain survived everything.

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

Then the boy told him if you want to kill me, I'll tell you how.

00:39:01--> 00:39:16

You gather everybody in the city, and he put me in a tree. Then you take the air and you said by the name of the lord of this boy, which is Allah and shoot the arrow and that's the only way you will be able to kill me.

00:39:18--> 00:39:20

Yes, the boy was killed.

00:39:21--> 00:39:31

Yes, the ALLAH SubhanA did not stop the error from hitting the boy's heart out I know whatever Allah put as a rolling dystonia, you should someone is going to die. Most likely.

00:39:34--> 00:39:55

Yes, he lost his life. But his words was delivered. What was the result? Everybody in this city realized that this not a God because he needed to use the name of Allah in order for you for him to kill the boy had everybody in the city turn to his slot. And the time they were Christian actually

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

the believing the message of a Saturday's center but

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

The pure message of Asa D the message of to heat the message unfortunately, that lost planet the Hydra alone.

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

Sometimes the victory

00:40:10--> 00:40:13

comes when opportunities are created.

00:40:15--> 00:40:20

One of the amazing stories in the Quran, the story of some intraday via

00:40:21--> 00:40:23

the treaty over Hedeby.

00:40:24--> 00:40:43

If you look at the Treaty of that, if you are there, when the treaty was signed, you will not see this as victory. Even you will not see this as something fair. And that's why some of us have objected to it. Yet what alone if we were to sort of hit API How am I described so today be a shuffle right?

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

As NASA as

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

what's the verse

00:40:50--> 00:41:02

you're gonna enough and enough attack nadaka fit him move in. We had giving you a great victory, a great conqueror, a great opening.

00:41:03--> 00:41:07

But but it's not what it is. But yet it is a great victory.

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

Because it created an opportunity.

00:41:12--> 00:41:15

And many people accepted Islam because of that.

00:41:17--> 00:41:32

Sometimes victory comes in the shape of your ability not to defeat your enemy. But your ability to hope and your principles what you believe in until the last moment of your life

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

that's victory

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

that's why I was Habana told us the story of us habit of dude.

00:41:43--> 00:41:47

The story of Noah so the king there were Christians believing in Allah

00:41:48--> 00:41:50

in the southern of Arabia.

00:41:51--> 00:42:06

The king was so mad at them because they believe in Allah, the tin dug trenches, and he filled it with fire. And he said if you don't leave your religion, I will burn your life. To the extent that the mother were her baby baby.

00:42:07--> 00:42:11

And the baby said mom, jump into the fire. Miss paradise

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

Don't worry.

00:42:16--> 00:42:23

You might if you just look at this from outside you said what what is the winning? He killed them all.

00:42:24--> 00:42:30

He wiped him out. He flatten the land. You might think that this is lost

00:42:31--> 00:42:39

this complete losses but it's not. Allah subhanaw taala told us about this that this is post kebele This is a great winning

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

because they were able to die.

00:42:44--> 00:42:48

While they're holding into their principles, they did not give up on it.

00:42:51--> 00:42:58

In Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi salam for Buhari or Muslim told us amazing story. One of the companions Nim

00:43:00--> 00:43:02

Hyrum had been mill Han,

00:43:04--> 00:43:39

Han, Han was in the battle and somebody came and that's the story. It was slaves. I'm going to just go straight to the point. Somebody came with the spear. And he stopped him from the back. The head of the Spirit came from his chest. And all of a sudden his chest and his lungs that it was full of air became full of blood. And he stopped suffocating, you know, was stopped, and the blood was gushing. He put the hands like this. And he put it in his face covering his visual blood. And he was able to pronounce one thing.

00:43:40--> 00:43:48

Or one full sentence he said, fizz to or Bill carga fizz to build carga fizz to Erbil combat.

00:43:50--> 00:43:54

I went I went I went, I just got killed.

00:43:57--> 00:44:02

But there's another concept of victory coming in in the mind of the companion.

00:44:03--> 00:44:06

What kind of winning is that? He said,

00:44:07--> 00:44:11

Allah Houma been live Ananda Vienna

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

and Latina Rob Benner. Ferdinand

00:44:19--> 00:44:34

after he died and he saw what Allah has for him, he said your Allah please let Mohamed Salah Salem knows that I met you. I am so pleased with what I got. So please for my sacrifice.

00:44:36--> 00:44:40

And Allah delivered the message to the process. I look beyond the process I'm told the companions that

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

amazing

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

and Nussle

00:44:47--> 00:44:55

sometimes comes in the shape of when Allah give victory to the idea that you live in form that you believe in.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

And when the falsehood do not have a leg to stand on

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

If you don't have an argue,

00:45:05--> 00:45:13

Allah give you victory by making that ugliness of falsehood, so clear to everyone.

00:45:15--> 00:45:19

Take that mask off from your enemies, everybody see their ugly faces.

00:45:22--> 00:45:28

To understand that this claim that your enemy and the transgressors have is false or true.

00:45:31--> 00:45:37

I just want you to know, because still the question is when the victorious cup

00:45:38--> 00:45:45

okay with all this chef, I understand this so many shape or form of victory. But sometimes in our incident today

00:45:47--> 00:45:50

why the people who was that did not get the victory.

00:45:51--> 00:45:55

But I do believe so many of these form of victory already attained.

00:45:56--> 00:45:58

You can see it so clearly.

00:45:59--> 00:46:14

But I want you to know something else. Because sometimes you say, Yasha I've been making up for my own battle, for my own struggle with my family, from my own struggle in my work from my struggle, struggle with my salt. I didn't win that battle.

00:46:16--> 00:46:25

I want you to know, that Alon grant victory for those who seek it from him. Yes. That soon Nico Nia, one of Allah subhanaw taala promises

00:46:26--> 00:46:50

one of Allah that the system that he built this world for, but I want you to know that Allah's promises and Allah spied on a Sunon bit the system that he put in place is not meant not is not made only of one system not made only one promise it's more complex come is more it is more

00:46:51--> 00:46:54

more unique than that, more sophisticated than that.

00:46:57--> 00:47:23

There is complicity in it. Because there is multiple Sinan together multiple system put in place multiple things has to be also taken in consideration and shouldn't and why not the desert What about Allah system that you put you cannot pick and choose? I want this but I don't want that. I want the victory but I don't want the Sunnah of Tierra, the Sunnah of test

00:47:25--> 00:47:36

and the Sunnah of purification on the Sunnah I want just that the the part of Allah grant victory to the believer. The What about the part of when those believer are purified?

00:47:39--> 00:47:44

What about another sunnah, which is the last product that I make to dhafir

00:47:45--> 00:48:07

which is a struggled with Allah said that this one that way he could hit bounce on Earth, that those winds sometimes in those Boonton pipe that's why when how often asked about oh Sofia, about the war between the Prophet Muhammad Al Salam and the beauty of Christ. He said the when someone we knew them they knew some he said that's the way it is. It's not only winning

00:48:12--> 00:48:17

What about the sinner that the last 500 do things according to his timeline, not according to our timeline.

00:48:19--> 00:48:21

This is triggering hold Palestinians what 70 years.

00:48:23--> 00:48:29

Do you know some of the struggles of the Muslim libgen was way way the Crusader was 90 years.

00:48:32--> 00:48:34

And the Morgul was way more than that.

00:48:38--> 00:48:47

You know, it took a took the Ottoman Empire for example, that everybody knows that with money in the Ottomans order, it took them 300 years to establish the hereafter.

00:48:49--> 00:48:52

300 years took for them to establish a state

00:48:59--> 00:49:11

sometimes we just we just think things are like you know, that's one of the syllabi that also gonna have it according to his timeline. And one day and all of those days it's like what 50,000 years of ours

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

why in Minnesota and Iowa

00:49:17--> 00:49:23

and this is something that should have submitted me or always mentioned it and always focus on it. And it is so important for us to remember

00:49:25--> 00:49:30

SUNet after the bill is about what a fairly minor need to have open the shop.

00:49:32--> 00:49:42

When Allah make a promise when Allah said things things will happen. In order for that thing to happen, we have to remove the hindrance and to fulfill the conditions.

00:49:45--> 00:49:50

You have to ask yourself, did we remove all these hundreds did we fulfill all these conditions?

00:49:52--> 00:49:54

In order for what we asking to happen

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Allah says what I

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

And Shawn Allahu Min Jung surah. Allah will give victory to those who give victory to him.

00:50:07--> 00:50:23

Allah said in terms of Allah and solocom If you give victory to Allah's religion, Allah will give victory to you. Yeah many people are excited and saying things, but you know what around the whole world and talking not in particular one place, but those same people

00:50:24--> 00:50:29

will prefer their own desire or for Allah Spanner the honest is Who was the one that was one desire from us.

00:50:31--> 00:50:35

They say Allah Akbar Allah is not the greatest things in their heart

00:50:37--> 00:50:44

this level a lot about and they said oh, if you talk about the injustice and they themselves so unjust, so unfair.

00:50:48--> 00:50:55

They all talk about this and that but then reality is so far away from people who deserve the victory from us chronoa Dawn

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

um, by the way,

00:50:59--> 00:51:07

one of the cinemavilla Sandara that you have to be careful of understand also one of the costumes setup that I was kind of dying to do things

00:51:10--> 00:51:27

not as a black and white light just 100 to zero No, any method when the rhythm I talked about a verse in the Quran, when a year Jad Allah, little caffeine ina had me Nina, Sabina, Allah will love give power of the kuffaar over the believers.

00:51:28--> 00:51:38

People said how come shift Allah says in the Quran, Allah will not give power and control over the flow of the disbeliever over the believers look at the situation today. Look who control the world today.

00:51:39--> 00:51:57

First read about him a lot. Many have said that this verse related to the archaea, not the dunya. Can you imagine any other net that I left with after I said that many scholars consider this verse is right to the affidavit in the hereafter. The kuffaar will have no power over the belief of believers.

00:51:58--> 00:52:02

But even many said no it applied to the hereafter apply to the dunya

00:52:03--> 00:52:19

Pilu the set because the Mayan porcelain came in and II man well worth ematic because there may so little Kapha Alec, or other method the Messiah can be Dean icquoter Coffee Denecke bit by their Maya Pinto salotto kuffaar IRIC.

00:52:21--> 00:52:28

They said the more you have Eman, the less the kuffaar will have power over you and control.

00:52:30--> 00:52:45

And the more bespoke following from the Dean less as a believer. This promise does not apply to them. 100% apply only according to how much Eman that's how much of the power on the disbeliever will be over there.

00:52:46--> 00:52:51

So if this goes up your Eman this goes down the control under the Bishop of the disbelieving.

00:52:53--> 00:52:57

Understanding that concept help a lot and dealing the situation that we have.

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

I just want to wrap things quickly.

00:53:04--> 00:53:13

Remember Shafia Rahim Allah was us. How do you MacKinnon in San Felipe teta a noob Terrafirma UMAC

00:53:14--> 00:53:23

which one comes first test then the word or reward then test

00:53:25--> 00:53:26

and Allah put you in position

00:53:27--> 00:53:34

then he test you or Allah some other test you then if you succeed Allah give you this control positions

00:53:35--> 00:53:39

for para immune shamone and metta practice cola Lyta Allah

00:53:40--> 00:53:58

which I mean who are in meta Yeah, do an A B M Marina Lim Moussa bottle? Or can we I attend a European, we made them leaders, we made them in charge. We made them Empower Allah says after the displayed a great deal of patience

00:54:01--> 00:54:07

and a great deal of believing in what Allah Allah have giving them after they displayed that Allah reward them

00:54:09--> 00:54:16

with power. So you will be tested before and after. But after power was a different type of test

00:54:21--> 00:54:28

we have to understand that the question will be shift but what about the situation was it today?

00:54:30--> 00:54:52

They've been tested so hard. You have to understand that this basically goes back to the principles which is it is the belief in Allah and the trust in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, you trust that Allah Subhana Allah Hakim wise, you trust in Allah subhanaw taala and in you just at the loss of Hannah to add up, he knows and he has his plan, and he has his hikma

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

look at so little calf, Rachel little calf and see how many things makes no sense to you?

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

But

00:55:01--> 00:55:09

but later on it does when explanation was giving the story of Musa and hunger the story of use of in itself

00:55:11--> 00:55:15

you know what this young boy taken away and putting in and slavery and you know

00:55:16--> 00:55:18

but things goes around

00:55:20--> 00:55:23

it's amazing how things change you know?

00:55:24--> 00:55:35

Yes, it is basically something that bring us as a set to the basics which is to know Allah Subhana Allah is the most capable the Most Merciful the Most just

00:55:37--> 00:55:44

to know that the last word allah does things according to his wisdom Not according Jeremiah one of the thing that sometimes drives me crazy

00:55:45--> 00:55:55

when people tell me God in the day somebody was telling me can you believe that chef? I said yes, he said I made bad for such that should never happen

00:55:57--> 00:55:58

00:56:23--> 00:56:28

enemies or something someone said I asked him last the other three things he said Nick two for you on one no

00:56:39--> 00:56:50

prophets a messenger Allah said to them no. Who are you to think that when I ask something Allah undermine your any demand and my I demand things on Allah

00:56:51--> 00:56:55

that he has to do with what I want according to the way I see

00:56:57--> 00:56:58

who said that

00:56:59--> 00:57:03

that attitude the attitude of KUVO the stock body to believe

00:57:06--> 00:57:16

that you think that the last for the law under your command and you know what, that's part of the false narrative that human beings are powerful enough to control the world

00:57:17--> 00:57:22

that we are in control no not that I demand by you not

00:57:24--> 00:57:28

the world is not central around you. Have a bad news for you buddy.

00:57:30--> 00:57:32

If you die today, nobody cares.

00:57:33--> 00:57:45

The feed disappears today news and the whole world will keep going there's not gonna stop nothing none of us no matter how righteous or bad or bad or rich anyone of us die the walls can continue

00:57:50--> 00:57:56

should Don't be fool Don't be basically for yourself. Don't be that arrogant.

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

You know

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

while

00:58:09--> 00:58:11

sometimes we feel so

00:58:12--> 00:58:19

like, we deceive ourselves. We're not real. We don't understand reality.

00:58:20--> 00:58:26

And we understand how Allah's father put things together. And in regard to this, I have a story to share with you.

00:58:27--> 00:58:33

For the federal the line is a congenital the lines a company Minar Khalifa who they follow the line,

00:58:34--> 00:58:43

he was in Kufa in a headlock. So, somebody asked him how it used to be with the processor and what you guys used to do with the processor, you

00:58:44--> 00:58:46

could no matter suited as a niche head.

00:58:48--> 00:58:56

When we used to build the process on them, we will all of us work so hard and near is It was tiring, it was not easy. It was very exhausting.

00:58:59--> 00:59:08

So that the successor is the one who would listen to exhausted. You say I am with beautiful film. It was exhausting. was hard.

00:59:10--> 00:59:15

He said Wallahi if we would have been with him

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

if we would have been with him.

00:59:18--> 00:59:21

We would have not let him do anything.

00:59:23--> 00:59:43

When he said exhausting doesn't mean in a negative he said it was hard it's not easy. But we meant so this young man he's tired heart if you were there on will Lima Hunter I know if I understand what ash minutiae he will not do anything well do everything for him. So Allah Allahu Allah He was salam

ala mana truco Yun she out of out of the Hammond Now Anna now cannot I will not even let the prasada walk I will carry him all the time.

00:59:54--> 01:00:00

Have you ever looked at him and said any as if he's saying he didn't say that but as soon as

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

slit

01:00:02--> 01:00:14

01:00:19--> 01:00:37

They then he shared with him an interesting story of who they for himself and the companions in the house with it is up in the Battle of Oiselle. And just let you a little bit background in the Battle of Eliza. Listen to how Allah described this battle.

01:00:38--> 01:01:04

The battle I said describe in a way that not a single other battle was described this way. Allah says in particular about this battle. Allah says, well, Bella Watson exerted absorb or Bannerghatta Grenoble Hannah agile. What a well known biller have Winona, who now nicob tullian Menon was Zulu Zulu cinza Island should either

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

in a moment where they can even focus their eyes that's all over the place their hearts in the throats from fear.

01:01:18--> 01:01:23

They Yuval nonurban Yanni they start having all these doubts and all these thoughts.

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

Double Moon Billa heal these thoughts. Even Miss Ruth was asked

01:01:31--> 01:01:33

01:01:42--> 01:01:48

he said the thoughts yeah that by thoughts that you don't want to hear that we had it

01:01:49--> 01:01:50

that's a bad thought.

01:01:52--> 01:01:57

Let's open the ambassador's us. Thoughts on a Nima hyung Bashar Al mineral Bashar

01:01:58--> 01:02:00

he's like here whether we think they are human needs

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

we think they're angels

01:02:05--> 01:02:06

that Khalifa continue

01:02:07--> 01:02:29

and said in the beginning it was so cold and it was so windy that if you walk if you want Canada to respectful module Allah will check if you give your back to the to the wind the wind so strong it will make you fall on your face if we never experienced such a cold when it's like this

01:02:31--> 01:02:49

The facility was so hard and we all gather freezing so dark so scary because we don't know what the enemy are which one is betrayed the province of Sanlam always tribe outside to so scary nobody can even go outside to urinate to relieve himself

01:02:51--> 01:02:52

01:02:53--> 01:03:02

everybody terrified, scared. Individual was in the business on himself. And many to many become a poll who will

01:03:03--> 01:03:08

tell me hold tell me what's going on with the enemy.

01:03:10--> 01:03:11

Not a single volunteer.

01:03:13--> 01:03:16

Everybody there, not a single volunteer.

01:03:17--> 01:03:22

So let me just let them raise the bar. He said hahnemannian teeny bit haberle our one our own agenda.

01:03:25--> 01:03:30

And his reward will be Gen. Your put Khalifa FML comma Minara June Why

01:03:43--> 01:03:45

it? Something you wanted me?

01:03:47--> 01:03:54

01:03:57--> 01:04:02

are a lyric of a song. Son Dalton. Don't Don't go there.

01:04:05--> 01:04:10

Then in Ibiza, Sonam Sigler will Jana three times not finding the visa Salam raise the bar

01:04:12--> 01:04:27

now he telling this young man the story so you you understand what kind of past they had to deal with reality. Our initial column in the teeny be hovering comb when you did not well? Jurina Inessa aneema

01:04:49--> 01:04:50

Scale scared.

01:04:52--> 01:04:55

That dinner be so solemn, said I in a favor.

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

In a bizarre Salam said, where it's heavy

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

But yeah but for the for

01:05:02--> 01:05:04

for the caught up to get a lot

01:05:05--> 01:05:08

he said when he said whenever I shrinked myself

01:05:10--> 01:05:15

he might not see me so you name someone else because if he picked me up

01:05:16--> 01:05:18

for the task I can say no

01:05:20--> 01:05:30

he said I shrink myself I make myself small and inefficient so I said yeah Khalifa bum* teeny behovet Rocco hulless

01:05:31--> 01:05:40

not what makes the Sahaba Sahaba he said go than Khalifa said I went and he said do not do anything

01:05:41--> 01:05:45

at all you just go there. You tell me what's happened and you come back.

01:05:46--> 01:06:12

So he goes in the middle of that dark so you sneak inside that enemy's army the story slung and it's funny too because he was listening to Abu Sufyan talking to them and it was event all them this wind and this situation is so bad we have to go and we leaving but before he said that I was Sofia want to make sure that there is no what

01:06:13--> 01:06:23

spy So how was the piano we'll find out who you can see anything your opponent yeah cool shaver if you put your hand like this you can see your hand that how dark it is

01:06:27--> 01:06:34

so what was even smart I was Sivan said Ask the one next to who he is.

01:06:35--> 01:06:36

We know each other

01:06:37--> 01:07:20

okay, so if you asked him and he told me his name hos that Yanni that's how the check is your call today for when he said that I went to the one of monitors What's your name then I went to the OLA flats and what's your name? So I asked him first so none of them asked me to join him because he asked the person on the off the for sale for some you know then he said I asked both of them and I got out of it and he said I saw with Sophia and I was managed for it just to sit out Blaine Yanni a second I had located him and I saw him was clear and I reach out to my error Aaron light to basically and my bowl of man and I said let me just shoot him and get rid of him rid of one of the

01:07:20--> 01:07:25

scaffold yeah let me just end it his his like then remember the puzzles said don't

01:07:27--> 01:07:30

Can you imagine if how they follow the line didn't listen to the process of

01:07:33--> 01:07:37

I was young became one of the greatest one of the leaders of Muslim later on.

01:07:39--> 01:07:39

He became Muslim.

01:07:41--> 01:07:47

Anyway, but the point is my brother and sister I'm one I'm bringing this to tell you that the test sometimes can be very hard

01:07:50--> 01:07:58

it's so important to remember that one of the great principles that we have to learn from this incident is spill wasabi and what arbitral

01:07:59--> 01:08:00

Saba

01:08:01--> 01:08:19

someone who doesn't mean just to be bathe in bathing bit now supper it means your ability to adjust your ability to stand up again. Your ability to never allow it to be defeated from inside somewhere it means with all the pressure I still commit them to drought I'm still committed to the salah I'm still committed to your Allah

01:08:20--> 01:08:24

soap at least no matter how strong my enemy is. I will not give up.

01:08:27--> 01:08:38

Yeah, are you under the eternity to fear? First of all to what could Allah cathedra Nyla come to Federico mentioned Allah be patient.

01:08:39--> 01:08:54

Yes, we never wish to start the walk, not something new in your car and I do and I never wished for a fight. The problem said that don't wish for a fight. But if the fight take place with Butoh Be patient, be strong.

01:08:56--> 01:08:58

These principles are so important.

01:09:00--> 01:09:14

This incident bring this on my back. One of the great things about this incident that you see today, it revival in this ummah, the spirit of one Ummah, what will make people around the whole world connect to herself.

01:09:16--> 01:09:22

It revival that part, it makes us connect together because we're all Muslims.

01:09:23--> 01:09:25

That's not a Palestinian issue. It's a Muslim issue.

01:09:27--> 01:09:30

Not a husband people's issue. It's our issue all of us.

01:09:32--> 01:09:42

Also, it's important when we deal with this incident to remember there is responsibilities that falls on the shoulder of each one of us differently.

01:09:44--> 01:10:00

The responsibility on the shoulder of the governor of Egypt, the governor of Jordan between the King of Saudi Arabia, the king of power, whatever it Kuwait and the prince of copper is not the same obligation fall into into that for shoulder of that

01:10:00--> 01:10:13

At the great the seniors colors live in these countries or the Cisco lives in America or live in somewhere else, versus Steven to Noah, this is just an average of Muslim

01:10:14--> 01:10:23

the responsibility of the one who live and Palestine every minute sponsibility live outside. So the responsibilities are not the same.

01:10:24--> 01:10:45

It depends on everybody's ability and capability. And you've been asked only to do what you're capable of, only to do what you can what you are allowed to offer, because if we start always talking about what's not in our hand, what's we don't have control over we never going to be able to make a real impact to real effect.

01:10:47--> 01:11:01

Also, it is so important with this incident taking place that you don't lose what you have been building over the years, just because of a moment of excitement or overzealous

01:11:03--> 01:11:29

which is not going to bring anything any good to anyone somebody and that's the problem with all these before Theresa attacchi call a lot of people in the name Philistine in the name of Palestine the name of abuse what they do they go blow things out and they go kill innocent people they go attack civilians in different parts of the world. Okay, what this how this how the Palestinian cause

01:11:30--> 01:11:32

it actually didn't

01:11:33--> 01:11:44

one of the reason that we are on this dilemma today it's because of some of the history that at one point many Palestinian realize that this not going to work this not going to help a cause.

01:11:46--> 01:11:47

When you hijack an airplane

01:11:48--> 01:11:54

when you hijack when you basically go to the Olympics and take you know hostage

01:11:55--> 01:12:02

and excuse them or Excuse Excuse some of them in the middle in the middle of the field this I gotta help understand cause it's actually a curse

01:12:05--> 01:12:13

going to blow up pizza shop or a market or a bakery or a coffee shop that's not going to help the Palestinian cause

01:12:15--> 01:12:17

no matter how trying to justify it

01:12:18--> 01:12:20

in the long term that's hurt your cause more

01:12:24--> 01:12:25

yes

01:12:27--> 01:12:30

you know kids having kids six years old does not help me a college

01:12:31--> 01:12:34

kid knowing a grand route nine tears closer home your cars.

01:12:37--> 01:12:42

And we have to understand this. And if you're honest, I'm brave enough to understand that

01:12:43--> 01:12:44

and to say

01:12:47--> 01:12:49

that doesn't help it doesn't add

01:12:50--> 01:12:51

it doesn't add up.

01:12:53--> 01:12:55

You can not do any good publicity over it.

01:12:56--> 01:13:02

Like somebody saying, oh, did you look they have toys for the kids why you take the kids first of all

01:13:05--> 01:13:06

that doesn't help

01:13:09--> 01:13:22

show with what I think it's important for us also to be able to have this clear thoughts and to not lose the big picture and not lose the battle do not lose your upper war ground.

01:13:23--> 01:13:29

That's important in this battle. You cannot be a new enemy in the same level.

01:13:31--> 01:13:36

People have no regard for humanity for human rights for you don't go to the level

01:13:38--> 01:13:45

that's why in a dilemma here Allah said if the enemy raid the Muslims woman you don't rape the woman

01:13:46--> 01:13:49

of the enemy kill the elder you don't kill the elder

01:13:51--> 01:13:54

because we go from where we stand from

01:13:55--> 01:14:03

we always look to this principle the statement or also look at the Masada Hanuman faster than Vantage and, and the Bihar member and the benefits

01:14:04--> 01:14:09

also, in the midst of this, it's important to remember

01:14:11--> 01:14:11

that

01:14:12--> 01:14:19

unfortunately, sometimes this incident instead of bring unity to the Muslim sometimes divide the most

01:14:21--> 01:14:25

and don't allow this division to happen at all.

01:14:27--> 01:14:28

I'll give you an example.

01:14:30--> 01:14:34

When there is area we can agree to disagree.

01:14:37--> 01:14:44

For example, about what he does not the guy who go to protesters not his that's not something I feel comfortable with it

01:14:46--> 01:14:48

doesn't mean that he doesn't care about policy and costs.

01:14:50--> 01:14:54

Doesn't mean that he's not to support him. But I don't like that

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

in what our filter she about for example, Sister maybe you know

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

are

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

being shoulder to shoulder with a woman Martian. I believe there's not a lot

01:15:07--> 01:15:13

somebody else know she goes to his brother's blah, blah, blah, you know how a justification work.

01:15:14--> 01:15:20

In the end of the day this there is certain area room where we have the room to disagree with each other.

01:15:21--> 01:15:24

I might not believe in the bike cut

01:15:25--> 01:15:27

or a biker to certain companies.

01:15:28--> 01:15:32

For God's sake, if you bike out all these companies that they have lust of it,

01:15:34--> 01:15:41

we're going to end up only just going to the halal meat store, and maybe 50% of the things though, also, who knows

01:15:42--> 01:15:43

if it's in the loss or not.

01:15:45--> 01:15:57

Yeah, I just sometimes it's it says I might not agree with all of them. But it doesn't mean that yet I might not agree with anyone on it, there is an area don't make me don't make these things a reason for us to be divided.

01:15:58--> 01:16:13

Somebody join hamdulillah somebody wanted hamdulillah but don't divide us as an ummah over as a community over things of that niche. You have to understand the area where we have to be united and the area with where you might disagree with each other on it.

01:16:15--> 01:16:19

Also one thing that it is important

01:16:21--> 01:16:27

for us while we see this whole thing unfolding in front of it that we need a wise leadership

01:16:29--> 01:16:30

we need a good leadership

01:16:32--> 01:17:19

and also we need to hold into the sooner of the person because the sooner gather us and the bigger divide us like he didn't know how many people told me you know share what about should we stop going to Mecca for Omar why my cutting back on camera Why is it because Saudi not showing and displaying support to Israel to Palestine and the talking to you know, normalization but I'm Rosalyn do with the Saudi government or Indian law if this what you want I think this kind of thing is big and religion but let's assume that's fine you want to do don't let this something that you know what you accuse each other I'm not gonna you know point finger to somebody you don't want to go there don't

01:17:19--> 01:17:21

go there just like

01:17:23--> 01:17:27

that at least it will be Yanni it's your choice

01:17:29--> 01:17:49

and as some people for example come up with this breed the head of see the shot that he whatever you know some Serbian guy makes this his for victory but he did 8000 times you know before breakfast, you know, I knew will when will come this be the amount gonna get us anywhere.

01:17:51--> 01:17:55

That's that will actually bring us back will not take us forward

01:17:58--> 01:18:06

it's important not to news, what we build as a society as a community with friendship and relationship also

01:18:07--> 01:18:09

over no real winning

01:18:11--> 01:18:12

I want to say

01:18:17--> 01:18:19

there's a lot to be sad here but I'll

01:18:21--> 01:18:23

just give me 10 minutes all in this

01:18:29--> 01:18:31

there is reactions

01:18:33--> 01:18:36

most of what we do for roasting is a reactionary thing.

01:18:37--> 01:18:43

Most of us are reaction we do a real we have a reaction to it have a crosstab and react to it.

01:18:45--> 01:18:49

Reaction are important and effective. But this is the level

01:18:51--> 01:19:05

if you really want to be effective in your message effective and to the cause. This has has to be built outside the crisis. People in the crisis mood in a different mood.

01:19:06--> 01:19:14

What I think we need in cities like Houston, and in many other cities well, people like I wish it out.

01:19:16--> 01:19:17

People like alignment.

01:19:19--> 01:19:25

People like you know it many good names your sisters, you know

01:19:26--> 01:19:48

and what you need to do. We need to create a group of people and organization over work is only for one cause to advocate for Palestinian issues only long every day. 30 created 60 But this doesn't it means that I was I need to quit care.

01:19:50--> 01:19:55

And it became only one task for him because he cannot have multiple multi out.

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

This is a very big task 510 sisters and brothers

01:20:00--> 01:20:08

They come together and they said, You know what, we are going to make sure that every day, every week, we have certain things that goal to achieve.

01:20:09--> 01:20:22

When it comes to media, when it comes to politicians, when it comes to the general public, when it comes to influencer in that social media, when it comes to people on the Hill level, and the city and the state level,

01:20:23--> 01:20:28

because in the time of reaction, people are in crisis, people are not ready for this.

01:20:30--> 01:20:34

Take it as a role. You need to build your friends before you need them.

01:20:35--> 01:20:38

You cannot make your friends while you need them.

01:20:39--> 01:20:48

You cannot make friends in the midst of this crisis, you have to work on this friendship outside the crisis. So when crisis happened, you have friends that are there for you.

01:20:49--> 01:21:06

When simple, efficient said this is I get visited by lobbies for Israel eight, nine times a year, you guys don't only come unless there is a war happening. You're Shut up on my you know what I do believe too, with all honesty, that he has no shame to say something like that.

01:21:08--> 01:21:18

Because it doesn't matter, I come to you not what's right is right, and what's wrong is wrong. But that's in my world. Unfortunately, not in the real world.

01:21:21--> 01:21:23

So we need to be focused.

01:21:25--> 01:21:28

He knew each and every one of us.

01:21:29--> 01:21:31

Okay, has to circle.

01:21:32--> 01:21:34

One circle, it's called

01:21:35--> 01:21:37

the area of interest.

01:21:39--> 01:21:41

And then in the area of influence.

01:21:44--> 01:22:01

I'm interested, I like this, I'm interested in this excited about this. But doesn't mean that I can influence in this area. It just talked as information does excitement, there's an area of act can make real change. I can influence.

01:22:03--> 01:22:14

So many times we are caught on the area of interest in talking and information and all of us. But we're not investing in the area where we can make real change, real impact.

01:22:15--> 01:22:16

And that said

01:22:19--> 01:22:25

people can cry over Philistine as much as they want. Hear news as much as they want. That's interest.

01:22:26--> 01:22:42

But when you said hey, let's plan something, let's do something. Let's make a bacon, fundraising. Let's do this. Let's do that. You don't see a commitment. Let's build an organization to do this in we'll see commitment.

01:22:44--> 01:22:45

US do real work.

01:22:47--> 01:22:49

You don't see the commitment.

01:22:51--> 01:22:51

You know

01:22:57--> 01:22:58

any

01:22:59--> 01:23:00

I give you example.

01:23:02--> 01:23:03

In order for you

01:23:05--> 01:23:12

to be able to make an impact in a case like Gaza, for example, in this issue. So we talked about and you take this in every area of our life.

01:23:14--> 01:23:16

One of the big things we want to do.

01:23:18--> 01:23:27

We for example, one of the impact is to create a sense of understanding of what is the reality of the conflict in Palestine?

01:23:29--> 01:23:40

What is it? People don't understand what's the conflict is? What's the history of it? Why do people don't understand that is the construct of occupation. They think this Amazon was the like

01:23:41--> 01:23:51

people on Rozanne always go these guys just some Nene thugs and some like people rebels and tourists organized like group who have no reason but to create chaos.

01:23:53--> 01:24:02

A lot of people they don't understand that this was the results of so much aggressions and oppressions and losing lands and territories over the years.

01:24:03--> 01:24:07

They think that is too many people just living in this because they like each other too much.

01:24:08--> 01:24:09

Maybe not

01:24:10--> 01:24:11

as long. The reason

01:24:12--> 01:24:18

is, is because they pushed from their homes to this piece to this line to this big jail, open air jail.

01:24:20--> 01:24:26

That's reality. So how can I make go from the interest to influence

01:24:29--> 01:24:36

so for example, one of the way to influence is through media. But here were the Sinhala comms.

01:24:37--> 01:24:40

They in order to influence media, what do I need?

01:24:43--> 01:24:46

First rule number one, I need you to understand media.

01:24:47--> 01:24:51

People who know how to deal with media. I didn't people who work in the media.

01:24:53--> 01:24:59

The question would be how much didn't we invested in creating such people. So

01:25:00--> 01:25:08

such blogger such influencer how much have we been invest in building people this was a writers reporters

01:25:09--> 01:25:24

how much we invest in people that study political science and theater and major in this area where they know an international crimes and stuff like that. How much we invest in this, as the OMA as a community to society say that's now we're talking.

01:25:26--> 01:25:41

We all want the community to be good and mashallah the OMA to change, an aroma to the change. We need good bad, it's good knowledge, good scholars, how much do we really invest in making and creating those people who will make that change?

01:25:43--> 01:25:53

That's when the OMA start moving from the area and the circle of talk, which is important and understanding and theoretical to the area of practicality.

01:26:00--> 01:26:04

Understanding that putting effort and hard work pays.

01:26:07--> 01:26:14

Understanding that sometimes also, success comes from individuals come from Institute

01:26:17--> 01:26:24

understanding how to explain to people that reality and to show that falsehood of that aggressions

01:26:26--> 01:26:32

to a there's a lot to be said, but I don't want to keep you any more longer than thus.

01:26:33--> 01:26:35

I wouldn't even enter remember.

01:26:37--> 01:26:42

So many times I read in history, historian would say that's the end of omit in Islam.

01:26:44--> 01:26:47

Somebody says that's a Muslim cause will never come back.

01:26:48--> 01:27:04

That's the end of his now. Like he said this when the Muslims when Islam falls, and in a near Spain, a story in Spain, when they obey the state in Egypt, with the Mogul, and so many times in Islam will be destroyed off of us as the end of it.

01:27:05--> 01:27:09

Alhamdulillah Islam and Muslim Allah can get tweaked with neuro dye

01:27:13--> 01:27:14

and bounce back.

01:27:16--> 01:27:19

I want to understand that you're been asked to do what you're capable of.

01:27:21--> 01:27:33

It's part of your role too. So searching and finding ways that you can do as long as it is good as long as it is not harmful, wholesome Islamically correct and legally correct.

01:27:36--> 01:27:41

I want you to understand the reality of the nature of the struggle. Don't be naive.

01:27:42--> 01:27:54

The reality is this boom of minus or something that is your whites weak why the Nussle Allah is not coming you know what that he out the summit the last Python is that has sold big of a difference between the two

01:27:56--> 01:28:16

what the Muslim ummah house and what's the others have in their heads? There's a huge gap and civilizations. There is a huge gap in system huge gap in the way that was ruled huge gap just because you never had America doesn't go live I just keep going overseas.

01:28:19--> 01:28:26

That's a huge gap. This is not weak because my show everything is perfect. And not only that to complicate things more

01:28:27--> 01:28:33

that you enemy want to keep that bigger, not same to make it bigger and bigger and better.

01:28:35--> 01:28:41

Every time you join, take one step to grow vase push you down, push you by

01:28:42--> 01:28:49

understanding the reality of the nature of that struggle will help you to know how to deal with it.

01:28:50--> 01:28:57

One of the things that always bring comfort when I read this I said were key doing a key there were a key to Kadir

01:28:58--> 01:29:00

when Coronado M correlate

01:29:02--> 01:29:03

the plot and I applaud

01:29:07--> 01:29:16

Aishe hamacher omachron Cook, bartable Nakuru Lamia now, the plot and the plan lay in knights huge plotting

01:29:17--> 01:29:23

be blocked but Allah is the One who taking care of this room. So that blank piece to me.

01:29:26--> 01:29:27

I wanted to know

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

there's a difference between

01:29:32--> 01:29:35

feeling bad. Sad.

01:29:36--> 01:29:39

I don't want to use the word soft because it's very it's a negative term.

01:29:40--> 01:29:46

But feeling bad feeling sorry. Empathy for your brothers, sisters and husband.

01:29:47--> 01:29:58

Doesn't mean that you'll also be consumed with 100% I had one brother telling me a chef, my wife. We go to eat a dessert shall

01:29:59--> 01:30:00

we?

01:30:00--> 01:30:07

didn t Al Jazeera channels like live life in what's happening was 24/7 that's all what she does

01:30:09--> 01:30:14

she doesn't go to work to work anymore like or she works 24/7 Watching waves

01:30:16--> 01:30:17

I said I gotta hell is not healthy

01:30:19--> 01:30:22

loving it this has really helped you grow

01:30:25--> 01:30:41

in the business some some of his friend died in the middle of the battle he still were raised with eyeshadow the lawn in the bottom rules comes down talking about some fake rules while there is a crisis on placed on fight in place

01:30:43--> 01:30:43

and

01:30:45--> 01:30:48

I hope we don't forget

01:30:50--> 01:30:51

at some time the test

01:30:52--> 01:30:57

the hardest test is not by losing your loved one

01:30:58--> 01:31:13

but losing and the tip in that certain video how and Allah da you remember just said about Surah zap I was with the rise up the Battle of Eliza that Allah describe it as the most shaking

01:31:14--> 01:31:19

thing ever happened to the Companions you know what's interesting about that is

01:31:21--> 01:31:23

it has the least number of casualties

01:31:26--> 01:31:29

the only the number of people killed in Blizzard has up you can count them in your hand

01:31:32--> 01:31:39

first of all, but yet it is the worst battle ever. The hardest battle ever not worse the hardest battle ever.

01:31:40--> 01:31:45

Yet it is the hardest battle ever in the Sahaba even though with the least number of casualties.

01:31:46--> 01:31:52

You know why? Because it was worth it. I zap the real test was not by losing

01:31:53--> 01:32:07

your loved one not by the amount of people died. But the amount of test your Eman to which unity you believe in? What a Mara, meno and Akka zap Ha hoo ha ha ha then Allah wa swerd

01:32:09--> 01:32:12

That's what Allah promised us that test that fitna

01:32:13--> 01:32:16

that was the hardest things and sorted out in the Battle of

01:32:18--> 01:32:22

Allah tested how much they believe in Allah spy dollars promise.

01:32:24--> 01:32:53

Malice pilot Anna given us the bat, you have a strength give us a deep understanding of all religion. And as you see that as so many areas can be explored in even more depth but this is the longest ever and Friday night light was given. And because of the needs of I don't want to talk about this topic again. And my salt or I will talk about it but I mean, I just want to make sure that I cover as many points as I can. And there's so many I highly recommend you

01:32:54--> 01:33:00

to listen to this again. And to reflect on some of these points. I highly recommend to you

01:33:02--> 01:33:05

to read Al Quran

01:33:06--> 01:33:12

looking and exploring in one cutomer The horns are Quran looking in every surah you read

01:33:13--> 01:33:29

for sunnah and Allah fie Hulka you read the Quran and Sunnah intention while you read. I'm looking for that system that the Lord put place what are the principles that govern humanity? Governor, our governor our life just read and look for it

01:33:31--> 01:33:32

and see how we enjoy.

01:33:34--> 01:33:39

If he can't, I highly recommended to read the verses in the Quran and the Quran so that it

01:33:40--> 01:33:41

reads sutra his app.

01:33:43--> 01:33:50

Read the soul on earth of sin of the soul. Then read it and run the story of the Battle of the Battle of Eliza.

01:33:52--> 01:33:53

Read about them

01:33:55--> 01:34:02

and you will see so many things that the more you read in the book of Allah data, you see the connection between the Quran and the reality that you're living in.

01:34:04--> 01:34:07

Thank you very much and have a wonderful night said I might want to live on a couch
