All praise due to Allah and whose praise

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

and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet

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

his family, his companions, and his followers until

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

the day of judgment.

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

I bare witness that Allah is the only

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

one worthy of worship and Muhammad

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

his last and final Messenger.

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

My dear brothers and sisters,

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

today I decided that this khutba

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

will be regarding the children of Hazza.

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

Gaza.

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

Those who are alive or those who passed

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

away.

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

I know that there is no words

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

sufficed for what they have been through.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:05

No matter how eloquent the speaker is

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

or how soft hard we have,

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

to never be able to describe the pain.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

We come closer to what these children are

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

going through,

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

been through,

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

or their parents and their family.

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

The most difficult

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

part of this conflict.

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

Children.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

The one who passed away and who

00:01:36 --> 00:01:37

though

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

they left behind.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

And the war is still going.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

You know,

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

in wars

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

is always the children who suffer the most.

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

More than 13,000

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

children have died

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

since

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

the bombarding began on October

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

7.

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

Maybe this number increased

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

because in some even

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

statistics said that about 2 child die every

00:02:09 --> 00:02:10

hour.

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

Astronatically

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

horrifying number,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

as it has been reported by international organizations

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

like UNICEF

00:02:23 --> 00:02:24

executive director,

00:02:25 --> 00:02:26

Catherine Russell.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:30

She said, I think these numbers

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

that we're seeing out of Gaza are just

00:02:35 --> 00:02:36

staggering.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

We haven't seen that rate of death among

00:02:39 --> 00:02:42

children and almost any other conflict in the

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

world.

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

It is really shocking.

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

Famine is imminent

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

in Northern Gaza

00:02:52 --> 00:02:53

as 1,100,000

00:02:54 --> 00:02:55

people,

00:02:56 --> 00:02:57

half of the population,

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

experience

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

catastrophic level of

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

food insecurity.

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

Almost

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

every child in Gaza

00:03:07 --> 00:03:08

is basically

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

facing

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

an imminent threat of, you know, famine.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

It is very hard.

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

You know, my brothers and sisters,

00:03:22 --> 00:03:23

I know poverty

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

is very

00:03:25 --> 00:03:25

complicated

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

issue

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

but feeding a child isn't.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

War is a very complicated issue

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

but not killing a child, isn't it?

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

The Israeli Palestinian

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

conflict is a complicated

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

issue

00:03:42 --> 00:03:43

But targeting

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

children

00:03:45 --> 00:03:46

and kids

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

and protecting their life is not

00:03:50 --> 00:03:51

a complicated issue

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

and is not a difficult

00:03:54 --> 00:03:57

thing, a conclusion that you arrive to.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:01

History will judge us

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

by the difference we make in the everyday

00:04:05 --> 00:04:06

lives of children.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:10

And unfortunately,

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

it's terrible how

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

no matter even with these voices that we

00:04:15 --> 00:04:17

hear today, it's not enough

00:04:19 --> 00:04:20

that we have the world

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

in denial.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

And in nonsense justification for the killing of

00:04:26 --> 00:04:29

these children and innocent people every day.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

I know that those children who died in

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

Gaza,

00:04:38 --> 00:04:39

means a witness.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

The adot when he die and consider shayeen

00:04:53 --> 00:04:56

because he's witnessing in front of Allah, he

00:04:56 --> 00:04:58

testifying how much he believes in Allah and

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

in the cause. That's why he died.

00:05:01 --> 00:05:02

For those children,

00:05:04 --> 00:05:06

they will be witnesses in front of Allah.

00:05:07 --> 00:05:09

Not over their faith because they're children.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:22

They will be a witness in front of

00:05:22 --> 00:05:23

Allah

00:05:24 --> 00:05:25

over the barbaric

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

state of Israel

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

and that government over there.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:33

They will be witness in front of Allah.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35

How passive

00:05:35 --> 00:05:36

we are.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:39

They will be witness in front of Allah

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

and how the world forsake them.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:48

They will be witness before Allah.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:51

How indiscriminate this war is.

00:05:55 --> 00:05:56

We heard

00:05:56 --> 00:05:59

people say, Kill the children of the Palestinians.

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

Tomorrow they will be Hamas member.

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

Let's just wipe them up from now.

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

Let's

00:06:08 --> 00:06:10

solve the problem from the beginning.

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

We heard these voices

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

but also we have to recognize that these

00:06:16 --> 00:06:17

voices are

00:06:18 --> 00:06:19

not necessarily

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

to be a very common voices.

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

These individuals

00:06:24 --> 00:06:27

and leaders, political leaders and religious leaders, but

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

not all of them,

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

And we are a ummah of justice.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

These extreme individuals are exhaust.

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

And in the other side, you will have

00:06:37 --> 00:06:40

voices extreme as well who said, Let's kill

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

all the children of the Jews.

00:06:43 --> 00:06:44

I'm targeting kids

00:06:45 --> 00:06:47

and killing them. I have no problem with

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

that.

00:06:48 --> 00:06:50

But what I want to make

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

a point here

00:06:52 --> 00:06:54

that there is a very big difference between

00:06:54 --> 00:06:55

these two voices.

00:06:56 --> 00:06:59

Yes, both are ill, both are wrong, but

00:06:59 --> 00:07:01

there is a difference has to be recognized,

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

Which is?

00:07:05 --> 00:07:08

Muslims are always asked to condemn the voices

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

that comes from the Muslim side,

00:07:11 --> 00:07:14

from an individuals who do not represent

00:07:14 --> 00:07:17

the mainstream Muslim, the mainstream Palestinians,

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

and we ask to condemn that. And we

00:07:21 --> 00:07:23

don't see any in any level

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

the other side or the rest of the

00:07:27 --> 00:07:30

world been asked to condemn such voices in

00:07:30 --> 00:07:31

the other side.

00:07:33 --> 00:07:34

The other side will be

00:07:35 --> 00:07:37

coming if it ever come in the news

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

as some

00:07:39 --> 00:07:42

random individuals, even those individuals

00:07:42 --> 00:07:44

are religious political leaders.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:47

But it will be just a random, odd,

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

you know,

00:07:49 --> 00:07:51

against the norm, blah, blah, blah.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

It will be input in a very, very

00:07:53 --> 00:07:54

limited,

00:07:55 --> 00:07:56

you know, capacity.

00:07:57 --> 00:07:59

Why would it present what some of these

00:07:59 --> 00:08:03

Muslims said? It will be a brush that

00:08:03 --> 00:08:03

will paint

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

the whole entire resistance.

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

The people who fight for their freedom,

00:08:10 --> 00:08:12

the people who say no to occupations.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

That's a very big difference between how these

00:08:16 --> 00:08:17

two

00:08:17 --> 00:08:18

images

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

represented, unfortunately.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:25

But you know what's the most important

00:08:26 --> 00:08:27

difference is?

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34

Is? The reality.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:39

The reality is that we have Palestinian kids

00:08:39 --> 00:08:41

dying every day.

00:08:42 --> 00:08:45

If it's not by it is by starvation.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:48

It is by the lack of adequate, you

00:08:48 --> 00:08:52

know, medical, you know, care. That's the reality.

00:08:55 --> 00:08:58

Don't compare empty words to reality.

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

Yes, there are innocent children killed as well

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

on the other side, but there is no

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

comparison between the

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

numbers

00:09:10 --> 00:09:12

or the magnitude of it, and we will

00:09:12 --> 00:09:15

always, always as Muslims stand against

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

killing and targeting any children or innocent people.

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

In the midst of all this,

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

I

00:09:25 --> 00:09:26

remember

00:09:27 --> 00:09:28

what

00:09:29 --> 00:09:30

Allah

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

said.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:47

When the girl who buried alive

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

will be asked in the day of judgment

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

by Allah for what sin

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

she was killed.

00:09:56 --> 00:09:57

In the past,

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

she might be

00:09:59 --> 00:10:00

a hole or dug

00:10:01 --> 00:10:04

and she was buried in that grave by

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

her parents

00:10:06 --> 00:10:07

or father.

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

Today,

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

she is buried

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

by the rubbles

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

or the bombs.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:18

Not individuals,

00:10:18 --> 00:10:19

tens.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:24

We have brothers and sisters in this community

00:10:24 --> 00:10:27

lost over a 100 of their family members.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:29

A 100.

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

In one hat, one of the brother told

00:10:32 --> 00:10:34

me he lost 20.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

Many of those people who are telling us

00:10:40 --> 00:10:42

and sharing their stories only from our community.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:45

Talking about how children

00:10:45 --> 00:10:46

are suffering.

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

I asked myself,

00:11:06 --> 00:11:08

why Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala when he talks

00:11:08 --> 00:11:10

about this, he said, When the child will

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

be asked?

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

I always thought

00:11:15 --> 00:11:17

the one who should be asked is the

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

criminal, the one who buried her.

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

The one who killed that child will be

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

asked in the day of judgement.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:26

But the ayah is saying that the child

00:11:26 --> 00:11:27

will be asked.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:30

He come to realize when the scholars talk

00:11:30 --> 00:11:33

about this, they said, it's basically to honor

00:11:33 --> 00:11:34

the child

00:11:34 --> 00:11:36

that Allah will speak to the child

00:11:37 --> 00:11:40

and to humiliate the criminal that he doesn't

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

deserve to be even talk

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

at.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:53

Also,

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

it is more suffering for the criminal,

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

for the one who the killers

00:11:59 --> 00:12:01

when he sees and hears

00:12:02 --> 00:12:03

how the

00:12:04 --> 00:12:05

person who

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

been

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

killed is speaking about their experience,

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

is speaking about their feelings.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:14

You know when you bring someone to the

00:12:14 --> 00:12:16

court and you bring, you know, the family

00:12:16 --> 00:12:19

or the one who been, you know, raped

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

or somebody been

00:12:21 --> 00:12:23

harm or whatever, and you bring them in

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

the stands and start talking about what happening

00:12:25 --> 00:12:26

to them,

00:12:27 --> 00:12:29

and you see the person

00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

the criminal listening to all this, it's so

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

painful.

00:12:41 --> 00:12:43

Before the suffering in hellfire.

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

Realize,

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

when Allah said for what sin, for what

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

purpose you've been killed, that there is no

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

excuse for killing children,

00:12:54 --> 00:12:56

There is no excuse for using them

00:12:57 --> 00:12:58

as a human shield.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

There is no excuse

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

for

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

indiscriminate kill for children.

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

There is no excuse for considering them, you

00:13:08 --> 00:13:10

know, a collateral damage.

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

There is no excuse for all this.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:18

I understand from this that all children will

00:13:18 --> 00:13:19

go to Jannah.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:38

We understand that in this verse that all

00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

children will go to Jannah because that child

00:13:40 --> 00:13:42

who Allah talked about in Quran is a

00:13:42 --> 00:13:44

child of a non Muslim

00:13:45 --> 00:13:47

who buried her before Islam.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:51

And so that means after Allah honor the

00:13:51 --> 00:13:53

child, we'll let them go to Jannah

00:13:53 --> 00:13:57

and put the parents accountable. So it doesn't

00:13:58 --> 00:14:00

matter where the child's parents are, from what

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

religion they are, Muslim or Buddhist or Christian

00:14:04 --> 00:14:07

or Jew. Children children should be protected.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:10

Even the children of your enemy, you're not

00:14:10 --> 00:14:11

allowed to touch.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:15

Forbid killing enemy in war, children in war.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:23

Forbid,

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

chargeling children.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:27

That's for a child whose parents

00:14:28 --> 00:14:29

are not Muslim,

00:14:29 --> 00:14:32

parents who are warrior, people who are in

00:14:32 --> 00:14:34

conflict zone. What do you think of those

00:14:34 --> 00:14:37

innocent children who are killed in Gaza today?

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

What will be in the day of judgment?

00:14:43 --> 00:14:44

It's hard.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

There's no doubt losing a child is a

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

trial

00:14:48 --> 00:14:51

which cannot be tolerated except by a person

00:14:51 --> 00:14:52

who is a patient believer,

00:14:53 --> 00:14:56

who is content with the degree of Allah

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

And I'm amazed by how the parents dealing

00:14:59 --> 00:15:00

with that.

00:15:01 --> 00:15:02

Nabi Sallallahu

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

Alaihi Wasallam

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

reported

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

Ibrahim his stepdad from Bresno.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:21

Ibrahim was

00:15:22 --> 00:15:24

in the process of death when Nabi saw

00:15:24 --> 00:15:27

his son like Yadudu bi Nafsi dying in

00:15:27 --> 00:15:28

front of him. And Nabi

00:15:28 --> 00:15:31

was in tears. Abdul ham Naf asked him,

00:15:34 --> 00:15:36

This is a mercy. Allah put it and

00:15:36 --> 00:15:38

compassionate, then Allah put it in the heart.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:41

Then he said, salallahu alayhi wasalam, the eyes

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

weeps

00:15:42 --> 00:15:43

and the heart grieves,

00:15:44 --> 00:15:47

but we see only what our Lord pleased

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

with.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:51

And we grieved over being separated from you,

00:15:51 --> 00:15:51

you Ibrahim.

00:15:52 --> 00:15:53

O Ibrahim.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:05

It is sad, it is hard to be

00:16:05 --> 00:16:07

separated from your child.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:13

But as Ibn Mas'ud said,

00:16:13 --> 00:16:15

there is none of you except

00:16:15 --> 00:16:17

that he is a guest,

00:16:18 --> 00:16:19

and his wealth is borrowed

00:16:20 --> 00:16:21

and the guest

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

will always depart

00:16:24 --> 00:16:26

and what is borrowed must be returned to

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

who it belongs to.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:13

And we will surely test you with something

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

of fear and hunger and losses of wealth

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

and lives.

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

And the hardest test when you lose some

00:17:20 --> 00:17:22

of the lives of the closest to you

00:17:22 --> 00:17:23

which is your children.

00:17:24 --> 00:17:26

But Allah give a glad tidings to those

00:17:26 --> 00:17:27

who are patient. Those who say we belong

00:17:27 --> 00:17:29

to Allah, we will return to Allah.

00:17:32 --> 00:17:33

A woman came to him,

00:17:36 --> 00:17:37

I buried 3 of my children.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:44

You have a thick partition from * fire.

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

Anyone who lost 3 of his children before

00:17:59 --> 00:18:01

they reach the age of puberty,

00:18:01 --> 00:18:04

go enter Jannah, and that person is patient.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

They say, Rasulullah 2, he said 2. 1,

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

he said 1.

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

Said,

00:18:12 --> 00:18:13

when your child die.

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

Allah, the Exalted, asked His angels whether they

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

have taken

00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

His servant's child.

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

They replied that they have.

00:18:31 --> 00:18:32

I had said, he said

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

that Allah will tell the angels,

00:18:35 --> 00:18:36

then

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

you have basically

00:18:38 --> 00:18:40

have taken the fruit of his heart.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:43

This is said, you know, the fruit of

00:18:43 --> 00:18:44

his heart.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:46

Then he said

00:18:47 --> 00:18:49

that Allah that the angels say, Yes. Then

00:18:49 --> 00:18:52

Allah will say, what did my servant say?

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

Then they said,

00:18:55 --> 00:18:56

They basically

00:18:57 --> 00:19:00

upon the replying, they have praised Allah and

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

said, we belong to Allah and to Him

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

do we return.

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

Allah said build a house of praise for

00:19:06 --> 00:19:07

them

00:19:08 --> 00:19:09

in my paradise.

00:19:15 --> 00:19:16

Nabi

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

told us that these children who depart today,

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

what will happen to them?

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

And Nabi

00:19:26 --> 00:19:28

said, These children from the moment, even if

00:19:28 --> 00:19:29

it is a miscarriage,

00:19:30 --> 00:19:31

so not even born yet.

00:19:33 --> 00:19:35

What will do these children in the day

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

of judgment?

00:19:48 --> 00:19:50

The child will drag his mom

00:19:52 --> 00:19:53

with his court

00:19:55 --> 00:19:58

to the jannah, if the mom delayed in

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

entering jannah.

00:19:59 --> 00:20:02

These children will pull their parents to jannah.

00:20:05 --> 00:20:06

And Ibn

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

Nabi

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

a man used to attend his gathering and

00:20:10 --> 00:20:12

his child comes with him.

00:20:12 --> 00:20:14

Child died and the man was depressed. And

00:20:14 --> 00:20:15

Nabi

00:20:15 --> 00:20:18

told him, if you wish, I will pray

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

to Allah to return your child to you.

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

And if you be patient, you will see

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

your child on the Day of Judgment

00:20:24 --> 00:20:26

calling you to enter jannah from any gate

00:20:26 --> 00:20:27

you want.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:30

This what happened to the children of Azza,

00:20:31 --> 00:20:34

waiting for their parents to invite them to

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

enter jannah from whatever gates they want in

00:20:36 --> 00:20:37

jannah.

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

Nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam told us the

00:20:42 --> 00:20:43

moment they die,

00:20:43 --> 00:20:45

the moment this child die,

00:20:47 --> 00:20:49

any children of the believer when they die,

00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

He saw dream and the dream of the

00:20:58 --> 00:20:59

prophets are true.

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

And he saw what happened to children when

00:21:02 --> 00:21:03

they die

00:21:05 --> 00:21:07

and where they go when they die.

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

We came to a very green area,

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

many bushes,

00:21:22 --> 00:21:23

it's a big garden,

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

have so many colors,

00:21:26 --> 00:21:28

beautiful colors of that

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

spring.

00:21:35 --> 00:21:37

A man who is very tall, I can't

00:21:37 --> 00:21:39

even see his head, he's very tall.

00:21:40 --> 00:21:42

And around this man so many children.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:46

Then he asked the 2 angels with him,

00:21:46 --> 00:21:48

who's this man and what is the scene?

00:21:49 --> 00:21:51

Baru this man is Ibrahim

00:21:53 --> 00:21:56

These children are the children who born upon

00:21:56 --> 00:21:57

fitra and die,

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

were

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

their children.

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

Qaliyah RasulAllah,

00:22:05 --> 00:22:08

any children, even the children of the mushrikeen?

00:22:08 --> 00:22:10

He said even the children of the mushrikeen,

00:22:11 --> 00:22:12

reported by Buhari.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:16

And Imam Ahmed Ibrahim Allah reported that there

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

is a special area in Jannah.

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

When the child die,

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

it's a mountain or a *

00:22:25 --> 00:22:27

and it's so green like a garden.

00:22:28 --> 00:22:31

And Nabi said, Ibrahim and his wife Sarah

00:22:31 --> 00:22:34

are the one in charge of children until

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

they meet

00:22:35 --> 00:22:36

their parents.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:45

And when the day of judgment comes,

00:22:46 --> 00:22:48

they are responsible to make sure that they

00:22:48 --> 00:22:49

reconnected with their family.

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

You wonder what happened to the children?

00:23:06 --> 00:23:08

Their souls are cast inside

00:23:09 --> 00:23:12

birds. They fly and they enjoy paradise.

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

And basically they return to nest right

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

by this throne of Allah

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

And

00:23:27 --> 00:23:30

said to Abu Huraira and once Abu Huraira

00:23:30 --> 00:23:32

somebody asked him, said I have a child

00:23:32 --> 00:23:34

who died, what will happen to my child?

00:23:34 --> 00:23:36

Then Abu Huraira said,

00:23:39 --> 00:23:41

I'll tell you something that it will bring

00:23:41 --> 00:23:43

comfort to you about your losses.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:46

And the losses of these children are our

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

losses.

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

That

00:24:10 --> 00:24:12

when a child die,

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

they will it

00:24:15 --> 00:24:18

is means there's someone who freely enter any

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

place.

00:24:20 --> 00:24:22

The moment the child die, he is in

00:24:22 --> 00:24:25

Jannah allowed to enter any place. Never said

00:24:25 --> 00:24:26

no to him. Even if it's not his

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

status or rank in jannah. He can go

00:24:28 --> 00:24:30

like children can go everywhere and they open

00:24:30 --> 00:24:33

every door, you know. Ask Ali Mudi, child,

00:24:33 --> 00:24:35

go to his office all the time. My

00:24:35 --> 00:24:37

office No. Children

00:24:37 --> 00:24:39

like that. In Jannah like that, they go

00:24:39 --> 00:24:40

everywhere they want

00:24:42 --> 00:24:43

until the day of judgment comes

00:24:44 --> 00:24:45

and they will be waiting at the gates

00:24:45 --> 00:24:46

of Jannah,

00:24:46 --> 00:24:48

looking for their parents.

00:24:48 --> 00:24:50

And when they see their parents, they go

00:24:50 --> 00:24:52

and they grab them

00:24:53 --> 00:24:54

and take them to Jannah.

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

That's what happened to them.

00:25:12 --> 00:25:13

Children, yes, children.

00:25:13 --> 00:25:15

And the moment they walk into the Jannah,

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18

the ulama rahum Allah debated and the strongest

00:25:18 --> 00:25:20

opinion, the moment they walk into Jannah, Allah

00:25:20 --> 00:25:22

turned them to the age of 33.

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

Because everybody in Jannah will be in the

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

age of 33.

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

But you see them in the age that

00:25:28 --> 00:25:29

they lost

00:25:29 --> 00:25:31

until they walk in through the Jannah. As

00:25:31 --> 00:25:33

Ibn Abbas radiyaan Allah

00:25:37 --> 00:25:38

said,

00:25:59 --> 00:26:01

It's been reported that the Prophet said in

00:26:01 --> 00:26:04

the thirties they enter. And that concept even

00:26:04 --> 00:26:05

the hadith maybe is not the most authentic

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

in the term meaning, but the concept is

00:26:07 --> 00:26:10

something agreed upon between the companions of radiAllahu

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

anhu

00:26:24 --> 00:26:25

This is a big topic and along, but

00:26:25 --> 00:26:27

I want you to see

00:26:28 --> 00:26:30

what you can see with your eyes today.

00:26:32 --> 00:26:34

Something of way beyond what is happening

00:26:35 --> 00:26:37

in front of our eyes. That will not

00:26:37 --> 00:26:39

reduce the pain. I mean it will not

00:26:39 --> 00:26:40

it doesn't justify

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

what happened.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:43

But in the end of this quote, I

00:26:43 --> 00:26:46

want to mention quick points. Number 1,

00:26:47 --> 00:26:49

this calamity that we see in Gaza is

00:26:49 --> 00:26:52

not restricted to the children of Gaza only,

00:26:52 --> 00:26:53

or that conflict in that part of the

00:26:53 --> 00:26:54

world.

00:26:54 --> 00:26:56

Unfortunately today over 400,000,000

00:26:57 --> 00:26:57

children

00:26:58 --> 00:27:00

live in countries where there is war

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

and violent conflict

00:27:02 --> 00:27:04

and they're forced to be misplaced

00:27:04 --> 00:27:05

facing

00:27:05 --> 00:27:06

unsecure

00:27:06 --> 00:27:07

future.

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

So this is a big issue

00:27:09 --> 00:27:11

that's not only related to one part, but

00:27:11 --> 00:27:13

we should care about all children around the

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

world.

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

Number 2,

00:27:16 --> 00:27:18

children killing children is haram.

00:27:19 --> 00:27:20

Nothing can justify

00:27:20 --> 00:27:21

killing children,

00:27:22 --> 00:27:23

using them as

00:27:24 --> 00:27:28

a human shield or clutter damage or this

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

nonsense should stop.

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

3,

00:27:33 --> 00:27:35

anyone who participate

00:27:35 --> 00:27:38

in killing them directly, that's a direct impact.

00:27:38 --> 00:27:41

But there is an indirect impact and participation

00:27:41 --> 00:27:44

in killing these children as well. And each

00:27:44 --> 00:27:47

one will be hold accountable according to their

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

degree

00:27:48 --> 00:27:49

and according to their

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

participation. They are not equal in sin but

00:27:52 --> 00:27:53

all responsible.

00:27:54 --> 00:27:57

Not that the one who directly killed them

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

is a responsibility

00:27:58 --> 00:28:01

but also those who supply them with weapons,

00:28:02 --> 00:28:04

those who supply them with bombs

00:28:04 --> 00:28:06

are also responsible for that.

00:28:08 --> 00:28:10

Starting from the president up to the congress,

00:28:10 --> 00:28:12

to the senators, to the people who vote

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

for that,

00:28:14 --> 00:28:16

for that decision to be made,

00:28:17 --> 00:28:18

all responsible for it.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:21

Also

00:28:22 --> 00:28:25

responsible for the kill of these kids and

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

anywhere,

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

those who recruit kids to be soldiers

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

and give them weapons.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:33

Also those who launch rockets

00:28:33 --> 00:28:35

or launch attack against

00:28:35 --> 00:28:37

their enemy from

00:28:37 --> 00:28:41

a civilians area where they living and knowing

00:28:41 --> 00:28:43

that this will cause to a damage to

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

the civilians

00:28:44 --> 00:28:46

are also responsible for the killing of these

00:28:46 --> 00:28:46

children.

00:28:49 --> 00:28:51

Everyone based on their level.

00:28:52 --> 00:28:55

And that nonsense of not caring for the

00:28:55 --> 00:28:56

life of children has

00:28:58 --> 00:28:59

to

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

stop. Those in the media

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

who justify

00:29:04 --> 00:29:05

the killing of children

00:29:06 --> 00:29:08

and casualty of war, and this is how

00:29:08 --> 00:29:10

war it looks like.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:12

Those who say now,

00:29:13 --> 00:29:15

if I've been elected or I am if

00:29:16 --> 00:29:19

you know, or those who are just because

00:29:19 --> 00:29:22

what? We stopped a shipment of what? 5%

00:29:22 --> 00:29:24

of the bombs that we send into Israel?

00:29:24 --> 00:29:25

The President,

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

like maybe 30,000 out of 100 of 1000

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

of bombs and he making a political stunt

00:29:31 --> 00:29:33

out of it. Even this, some people coming

00:29:33 --> 00:29:36

like, oh, our senators here and and and

00:29:36 --> 00:29:37

Ted Cruz and others,

00:29:38 --> 00:29:40

that he doesn't deserve a single vote of

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

you,

00:29:45 --> 00:29:46

saying that this,

00:29:46 --> 00:29:47

you know,

00:29:49 --> 00:29:51

this for the security of Israel, blah, blah,

00:29:51 --> 00:29:53

blah. Those people also responsible for the killing

00:29:53 --> 00:29:55

of these innocent

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

people.

00:29:58 --> 00:30:00

Those on the media speaking on propaganda,

00:30:01 --> 00:30:02

you know, the justification

00:30:03 --> 00:30:06

and the, you know, inhumane the Palestinians

00:30:06 --> 00:30:09

is all responsible for this killing as well.

00:30:13 --> 00:30:15

Those who their hearts never

00:30:17 --> 00:30:20

been affected or moved by what happened there.

00:30:20 --> 00:30:21

Those who don't care,

00:30:23 --> 00:30:24

Just the numbers.

00:30:26 --> 00:30:27

Have their share in the sin.

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

Finally we have a responsibility toward these children.

00:30:34 --> 00:30:36

You know my brothers and sisters, only the

00:30:36 --> 00:30:38

dead have seen the end of the war.

00:30:39 --> 00:30:42

Only the dead. The living one, not yet.

00:30:43 --> 00:30:45

That's not over yet. And there's not one

00:30:45 --> 00:30:46

war, there's not a sense that it's going

00:30:46 --> 00:30:48

to happen as long as the conflicts continue.

00:30:49 --> 00:30:51

That's why it is important for us to

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

make sure that we take serious steps,

00:30:54 --> 00:30:56

a long shot, a long term, a long

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

commitment.

00:30:59 --> 00:31:02

Some people think that I'm sinful because I

00:31:02 --> 00:31:02

No.

00:31:03 --> 00:31:05

You do what you're Allah will never hold

00:31:05 --> 00:31:07

you responsible for the killing of these children

00:31:07 --> 00:31:10

because you don't have the capacity or ability

00:31:10 --> 00:31:11

to make that.

00:31:11 --> 00:31:13

Stop. But you do what you can. You

00:31:13 --> 00:31:15

make the dua, you make the donation, you

00:31:15 --> 00:31:18

do the you know, you lobby, you go

00:31:18 --> 00:31:19

vote, you make sure that you don't give

00:31:19 --> 00:31:21

your vote to those who are ill, those

00:31:21 --> 00:31:24

who have no regard for the human's life.

00:31:28 --> 00:31:29

You

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

basically propagate

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

the truth not the falsehood.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:39

Helping these orphans,

00:31:40 --> 00:31:41

those who are left behind.

00:31:41 --> 00:31:43

And the only reason I give this chutul

00:31:43 --> 00:31:45

because I'm inspired by one family here in

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

our community.

00:31:49 --> 00:31:51

They sponsor a family from Gaza

00:31:52 --> 00:31:54

to come to take a treatment because they

00:31:54 --> 00:31:56

were, you know, injured in the war.

00:31:57 --> 00:32:00

I was inspired, touched by that. Maybe the

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

family even listened to my khutbah today.

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

It's nice.

00:32:06 --> 00:32:08

Saving the life, the doctors who goes, the

00:32:08 --> 00:32:10

people who donated to save lives there.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:13

Even though now everything is shut down with

00:32:13 --> 00:32:14

what happened in Rafah.

00:32:16 --> 00:32:17

We should

00:32:17 --> 00:32:19

sponsor their education, sponsor

00:32:20 --> 00:32:21

people to come

00:32:21 --> 00:32:22

for treatment,

00:32:22 --> 00:32:24

whatever we can do.

00:32:25 --> 00:32:27

Taking care of their orphans,

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

helping

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

whoever left behind.

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

It's hard. I can't imagine what they're going

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

through.

00:32:33 --> 00:32:35

But it's easier to build a strong children

00:32:35 --> 00:32:37

than to repair a broken man.

00:32:38 --> 00:32:40

Let's not wait until they become an adult.
