indeed or praise and thanks is due to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

I bear witness that there was nothing worthy of worship except Allah, Allah Allah.

00:03:08--> 00:03:12

And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was Salam is his final messenger.

00:03:16--> 00:03:23

The book of Allah subhanaw taala is full of lessons for us. It is a book of no doubt Heydar guidance for us all.

00:03:24--> 00:03:28

But within that there are many lessons for us to benefit and learn from.

00:03:29--> 00:03:41

And from the lessons that we can take from the book of Allah, Allah Allah is that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that there were nations who appeared on Earth,

00:03:42--> 00:03:54

those nations, they became consumed with their own selves and their own power and their own hold over what they thought gave them authority.

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

And we know that these nations no longer exist.

00:04:00--> 00:04:30

They are not here to pass on their baton of oppression to others. Rather Allah terracotta Allah wiped them from the earth. And this is not something that you need to be told about. It is not a secret. You only have to read some of the chapters of the Quran where Allah to Allah mentions these things, fumbled around, they no longer exist. Even though in their times they saw themselves as the most powerful.

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

And throughout history.

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

This occurs time and time again.

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

If you look at the Crusades,

00:04:43--> 00:04:52

at the end of the 11th century, the beginning of the 12th century, there were a number of crusades where the Europeans

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

and all of their factions they came together

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

and they put Aqsa Isle coats on the sea.

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

Each and upon them entering Aqsa al quotes, that they slaughtered people by the 1000s.

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

They slaughtered the Muslims and they slaughtered Jews alike, that no one was shown any mercy. And then we'll record the historians

00:05:22--> 00:05:42

in detail explain what happened. And the massacres that happened during those days. Nobody was spared, old young women children, doesn't matter who you were, if you are in that space, then you are a target and you were killed.

00:05:44--> 00:05:54

You might not have been killed necessarily in the moment, meaning that maybe a bomb would fall from the sky, and that you might not know anything about it,

00:05:56--> 00:06:10

if that's how it is anyway, but they would be killed with swords and bows and arrows, that kind of if you like, very simple way of fighting that exists at that particular time. So maybe when a person was killed, it may take hours for them to die.

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

But that is what happened at that particular time after

00:06:16--> 00:06:22

from the time of Ramadan ohata battle, the Allahu Taala and who, the great Khalifa of Al Islam from that time

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

for more than let's say 450 years,

00:06:28--> 00:06:32

that Al Aqsa or al Coates was

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

under the auspicious control of the Muslims.

00:06:39--> 00:06:52

That people were freely allowed to worship a lot about a quarter either Muslims and those other people who worshipped other ideas of other religions, they had their place. But there was no shedding of blood until

00:06:53--> 00:07:00

the Crusades, they came and they massacred and they slaughtered and they left virtually nothing untouched.

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

So

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

if a person is living at that time,

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

and looking at what appears now that there was a weakness in the OMA

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

and no doubt there wasn't there was a weakness for this to happen.

00:07:17--> 00:07:32

If you're in the timber or the very height of your strength, then by Allah's permission, that won't happen. So there were some weaknesses for that to occur, this was the son of Allah subhanaw taala. And then when may then question is that how can then the Muslims ever come back?

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

How can anybody come back from such a defeat?

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

But as we know

00:07:41--> 00:07:56

that the Sunnah of Allah subhanaw taala also tells us the way of Allah, Allah Allah tells us is that the flourishing of Al Islam? The victory of Islam isn't dependent on a particular people on any particular place.

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

Because you only need to find when you look at history and how beneficial history is for us as Muslims to learn from it.

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

But only three or four generations later.

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

But Allah subhanho wa Taala then chooses interindividual

00:08:13--> 00:08:22

Salahuddin Allah UB Rahim, Hola, who's not been abducted by that is not from the city of el coche. But all the way from Iraq.

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

In the northern part of Iraq,

00:08:27--> 00:08:39

Allah subhanaw taala chosen individual to be born in that place, then to have victory over victory after victory in other places in Egypt and other places to make his way around to return our coats

00:08:41--> 00:08:44

to return our goods to its rightful owners,

00:08:45--> 00:08:49

in which Allah subhanaw taala tells us that this is a place a blessed place

00:08:50--> 00:08:57

in which our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam was raised up into the heavens from this place.

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

We know it is a blessed place because Allah general Allah tells us in Surah 10 Sr.

00:09:04--> 00:09:11

And then it was returned to the Muslims Salahuddin Allah UB Rahim Allah and then passed on from generation to the next. And there was

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

for all intents and purposes a man there was security. No one was oppressed.

00:09:19--> 00:09:22

Specific people driven out. People were allowed to return.

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

People were allowed to do what they were doing previously,

00:09:27--> 00:09:34

from not just under the banner of Islam and Muslims, but Christians were allowed to return who lived there.

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

And Jews were allowed to return because they lived there.

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

And this is what our deen teaches us.

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

So the point here is not to have a history lesson here on the member.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

But furthermore, I would want to add

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

that these lessons that we take, we know that there are a cycle of events, there are things that happen throughout history.

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

And that Allah Tabata, Kota, Allah wants us to benefit from those lessons, first and foremost, never to allow a thought in your head or to fall into a state of despair.

00:10:13--> 00:10:27

That how can this happen? There are no Gods there. Now, for example, it's not something that is hidden. There are no homes, no houses, no schools, no hospitals, no amenities for any human being to live in that place.

00:10:28--> 00:10:32

However, this does not lead any individual.

00:10:34--> 00:10:42

More only those who are considered from a distance but the people there people from overseas are saying that this is our home.

00:10:43--> 00:10:47

And there is nothing there for us in terms of what you may see. But they still are home.

00:10:49--> 00:10:55

And they refuse to be driven out of their home upon principles because it is your your home.

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

And things will improve.

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

In the darkest part of the night, shortly after that you see the sunrise

00:11:05--> 00:11:09

and always you find that Subhanallah in the most difficult of times.

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

But shortly after that, imminently after that, that Allah subhanaw taala brings the Nasir brings the march

00:11:19--> 00:11:36

that there is a victory and there was a way out. Well, my Yet Allah Allahu Maharaja, well, you're a Zuko whom in her youth who later said that whoever fears a lot about ACOTA Allah, then Allah Allah, Allah will make a way for them and provide for them in a way which they never thought of.

00:11:40--> 00:11:53

So these are a reminder this is a very stark reminder for us all the trials and tribulations and calamities that we may face and will face and continue to face while we are here in this dunya.

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

And it is our reaction to those Fitton and calamities, which is where we are tested.

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

And how do we resolve the situation.

00:12:05--> 00:12:27

Now now there is no doubt that there are certain things and we have shortcomings as an ummah, we have many shortcomings, and it has the shortcomings which will come to the forefront, individually, meaning one person to the next, the shortcomings that you and I have, and also the shortcomings that we have, as a community

00:12:29--> 00:12:37

that were at one point in time, we saw ourselves as one OMA and we were helping one another at least that's what we believed what we were doing.

00:12:38--> 00:12:51

But when the situation became a little estranged, is a bit difficult. Those communities who you thought were close to you are suddenly now very far away, in a sense that you think I can't do anything.

00:12:52--> 00:13:05

I feel helpless. So it was a reminder that this brotherhood in which Allah Tabata instilled with us, gave to us in the moment, Mina ICWA, that the believers are none other than a brotherhood.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

The reality of that

00:13:10--> 00:13:18

is that when you see the pain on the television screens, or the your devices or whatever, imagery that you are seeing,

00:13:19--> 00:13:24

when people are losing their children, their sons and their daughters and mothers and

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

all their family members.

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

Because we see them as our family members,

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

that

00:13:34--> 00:13:45

the statement they are our daughters and our mothers and our fathers, yes, we say this, but you're not feeling the pain that they think that they feel, you are not feeling the pain that they feel

00:13:46--> 00:14:02

your pain is much lesser. Because when you say your daughters and your son's, that's not your blood son or your blood daughter, that is their son and their daughter that they see in pieces or under rubble right in front of their eyes.

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

That is their reality.

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

Now imagine upon hearing that,

00:14:11--> 00:14:16

if you pay attention to that is impossible, that your heart wouldn't feel any pain.

00:14:18--> 00:14:23

And if you heard that, and didn't care, moreover, smiled or laugh

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

then you have to ask where your face is.

00:14:32--> 00:14:38

So how about finding some solutions? How about working forward and how we can improve the situation

00:14:40--> 00:14:52

is about finding who are the eloquent ones who can speak beautifully the orators or is about the influences is about spending as much money as we can. What can we do?

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

Or is it about individually? Practically looking at ourselves how we can improve ourselves.

00:15:01--> 00:15:09

And in turn improving our communities. For indeed the last about a quarter Allah will not change our state change our situation until what?

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

Until we change ourselves

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

and this is something Allah subhanaw taala has told you and I, your state, your situation will not change until you change yourselves. You look internally how you can improve.

00:15:27--> 00:15:46

So where do we start individually? Every single one of us in every single community starts about improving their relationship with Allah Tabata, Kota IRA. It means that tomorrow morning, no one within the community as an individual, no one except that they press a lot of Fajr on time,

00:15:47--> 00:15:58

no getting up at eight 910 o'clock in the morning, you start the day correctly, and that the remaining Salawat within the day, that they are prayed on time, and within their time.

00:15:59--> 00:16:05

And all the other obligations, obligations that a lot about God has placed on your shoulders as individuals, you fulfill that.

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

And the obligations as a community, you also fulfill that the masjid it needs help, by whatever means that is whatever form that comes in. You are there to help. I'm not saying that so and so is going to help.

00:16:19--> 00:16:38

So as a community, you do that. Here we are in the community. Where are we in Kilburn masjid, okay? Kilburn Masjid needs to be a beacon of light, a beacon of Islam within this community, every single individual, they take as a personal responsibility to make sure that the needs of the community

00:16:39--> 00:16:54

and the needs of the masjid and what is around individuals they're taken care of. Not to be just waiting and relying on others to do that. If you attend today, it's not your community then whatever community that you are from, and that each Muslim community does that.

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

Working together

00:16:57--> 00:17:00

was strength Allah subhanaw taala will give to us.

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

So it is about turning back to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

It is about reminding ourselves the purpose of why we are here.

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

If I mentioned to you a verse in Surah, two Muhammad for ilm, and no hula ilaha illallah

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

have knowledge and know that Allah is your Lord.

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

As I mentioned to you, this is in surah Muhammad

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

and it is a Madani surah

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

and who is it directed at first and foremost?

00:17:36--> 00:18:06

This is a command to our beloved Nabi Muhammad Salla Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam for ILM have knowledge and know that there is none worthy of worship, except Allah subhanaw taala Allah Subhan Allah and never use all Allahu alayhi wa sallam who gave to our to his people for 13 years, was driven out of Makkah, after 13 years had to go to Medina. And yet a lot about a quarter Allah still commanding al Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and no and have knowledge of la ilaha illallah

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

because that is where it starts from.

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

If you want to start making a proper change, or correct change, you have to know what you're going to

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

equip yourself with.

00:18:21--> 00:18:33

That you're subservient, your submission to Allah subhanaw taala is the foundation of absolutely everything. And you understanding this foundational concept in Islam is the very start of everything.

00:18:35--> 00:19:10

Improving the state of people, your communities and yourself. Everything is underlined by you understanding what it means to say La ilaha illAllah. Once you start taking that path and you don't understand what is truly means, you will become busy with 10s of other things and then lose your direction. You lose your direction, but understanding this Kalama and everything that is built upon it will give you direction and understanding. We ask a lot about either to give us element mafia of colocado that was stuck for Allah Holly welcome equilibrium photography rule in no who who will have a photo of him?

00:19:22--> 00:19:35

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who are early he was a big marine All praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala. And may the peace and blessings of Allah Allah Allah Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:36--> 00:19:54

So looking at the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the trials and tribulations that he faced, and how he never gave up, never lost hope. And how the Sahaba of the Allahu Akbar the Allahu Taala and whom similarly followed the same methodology

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

in how Allah subhanaw taala praises a Serbia coup.

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

In a well known Amina Maha GT and I will answer

00:20:04--> 00:20:22

that those who preceded and from the first ones of the MaHA Joon and the answer, and those who follow them with the SN, what is their status? Or the Allahu Anhu. Madhu and that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with them and they with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

So does their methodology, their understanding and dealing with all of these trials and tribulations

00:20:29--> 00:20:44

during the time of Abu Bakr Siddiq, what are the Allahu Anhu in the apostate wars, and how they behaved during the time of Ramadan Cotabato the Allahu Anhu in entering into the areas of Persia, and defeating the majors,

00:20:45--> 00:21:17

Zoroastrians, how these armies were set up, all built upon what La ilaha illallah whether it be able to honor in facing the Persians speaking to Rose tomb, we are calling you to La ilaha illallah Karlie Dibner eternal the Allahu Anhu addressing the Romans, we call you to La Ilaha illa Allah, that is what our NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us this is the first Dawa the first thing that is the spread amongst the people.

00:21:19--> 00:21:24

And bearing that in mind, knowing that this is what we should be doing.

00:21:25--> 00:21:32

We should also be aware of what we should not be doing. So as for the for the Allahu Allah and who

00:21:33--> 00:21:54

he famously stated that the companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would ask him and he said Salam about that what was good, so that they could implement it. However, I would ask about those evil things, those bad things why so that I would not fall into them. So, the Muslim is fully aware of what they should be doing and what they should not be doing?

00:21:56--> 00:22:05

You gain the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala by doing that, what is correct and avoiding that what displeases Allah subhanaw taala which may earn his anger.

00:22:06--> 00:22:28

So let me mention to you and there are many chinks in our armor if you want to say within the many areas of weakness and it is when we look at ourselves, what are those weaknesses? So let me mention a hadith let me complete with this in sha Allah to Allah. The hadith of Abdullah ibn Umar, Radi Allahu under anima

00:22:29--> 00:22:32

and when she says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam

00:22:37--> 00:22:41

he says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if you engage yourselves in Alina,

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

this is type of riba type of riba transaction

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

and that you chase the tails of cows.

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

What does that mean? Meaning that you are chasing dunya

00:22:57--> 00:23:03

and that you are satisfied with your health with your harvest you're satisfied with dunya

00:23:05--> 00:23:10

and that you leave out striving in the path of Allah subhanaw taala you leave it

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

these four things

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

that you engaged in libre.

00:23:19--> 00:23:30

You don't care where your money is going and how you get your money that you are consumed by dunya you're satisfied with dunya and you give up striving in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:31--> 00:23:40

Allah subhanaw taala will do something to us. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says what Salop Allahu Alikum overland

00:23:41--> 00:23:46

but Allah subhanaw taala will place upon you Muslims, a humiliation.

00:23:47--> 00:23:58

Allah subhanaw taala will humiliate you and it will not be removed Allah Yun zero che hut Tara 30 year old Illa de nikam until you return to your deen

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

as long as you're living like this, you will be humiliated by Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will remain in this state it will not be removed until when? Hotter third year Isla de Nicola.

00:24:15--> 00:24:25

It could have been mentioned has stuck with you until you ask for forgiveness. But the matter is until you return to your deen if I was to ask you

00:24:26--> 00:24:37

what is the What's your deen? You'd say it is my life. It is everything it is my existence my understanding of everything. My deen is everything.

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

It is my salvation.

00:24:41--> 00:24:52

It is my path to Jannah It is everything to me. So the fact that the Prophet salallahu it while it was me says this won't be removed until you turn back to your Deen

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

means that no more haram and engagement transactions. No Madiba, no more satisfied with dunya no more che

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

Using the dunya

00:25:01--> 00:25:02

strive

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

in the path of Allah subhanaw taala then be at the Nolita Allah this, this humiliation will be removed
