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

Law need how

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

many Mina most need me

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

mill Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah de he was maybe one

00:00:26--> 00:01:07

of the greatest of the Sahaba of the younger generation. The Sahaba are generally divided into two generations the earlier and the later. And the later are those that lived after the 40th year of the hero of the greatest of them was Abdullah Hibben Roma, the son of Ramadan hilltop, and he fled the fit and that were taking place and he sought refuge in Makkah. He didn't participate in any of the civil wars. And he was a very pious person always doing tawaf and praying and fasting. So he will do to off regularly. It is reported that once he was doing blow off, and his students were around him and there was civil war going on, people are dying, people are being killed. And he said, looking at

00:01:07--> 00:01:36

the Kaaba, ma Tamaki Ma Ma formata, Kima. Allah, Masha, Nikki, he's praising the caliber. How glorious Are you? How majestic Are you? How sacred Are you? How holy Are you? He's in awe doing the walk around the Kaaba, his students are listening to him. And this is a time of civil war and bloodshed. And then he says, but the life of one Muslim is more sacred and precious in the eyes of Allah than you

00:01:38--> 00:02:21

Herma to movement, one believer, his life is more precious in the eyes of Allah than you. Now some of us hear this and we are shocked. What do you mean, the Kaaba versus the believer? But this is what even Ahmed is saying. And where is he getting this from? From the Quran and Sunnah. What does Allah say in the Quran, whoever kills one person, it is as if he has destroyed all of mankind. All of mankind will catch up now I lay him fee how we prescribe to the children of Israel. Ironically, the verses about the children of Israel Allah revealed to them that whoever kills one soul, it is equivalent of killing all of mankind.

00:02:22--> 00:02:40

And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, as reported in the Hadith about Ivan as the annihilation of this entire world, led to dunya is easier for Allah than the shedding of blood of one believer.

00:02:41--> 00:03:31

If this world were to just be gone, it's not here. Law who it is easier, it's less of a crime, meaning of the world didn't exist if all of this just poof disappeared, vanish. It is lesser of an issue in the eyes of Allah than killing one innocent believer and our prophets of Allah who either he was salam warned against the sin of killing and shedding blood. He said, on the Day of Judgment, the first thing that a person will be asked about is the blood that he shed of anybody else. And he said that men are believer, my is Alfie Foose Hatem mendini. He, there's always gonna be leeway for him. There is some room Shala he'll be forgiven, as long as he doesn't shed blood that he wasn't

00:03:31--> 00:03:47

allowed to shed. As long as his personal says between you and Allah be hopeful, Shalabi hopeful any personal sin it's not a license, but it's like, okay, there's hope. But when does the door of hope almost shut down if not completely shut? When innocent blood is shed,

00:03:48--> 00:04:27

a man came to Ibn Abbas, the cousin of the prophets of Allah who I knew he was selling them, and he said, Oh, even Abbas, will Allah accept the Toba of a murder? Hello, Catelli Toba. Now, pause here, you know, in this early phrase, you know, still developments are happening different opinions are there some of these opinions were a little bit on the left or right to the spectrum and they get left out on the simply reported at this stage had been Abbas and his famously known from him. He had a position that later on was modified, meaning he doesn't it's not something that is mainstream anymore. But at that early stage, this development is still happening. So even Abbas said, Wait,

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

what did you say mother could repeat your question? So he said, Hello little party live in Toba? Will Allah ever accept a murderous doba? So what did you say? He said three times. Say it again. Say it again. And then he snorted in contempt. What Maha Maha means what? What are you talking about? Do you know what I heard the prophets of salaam say? Even Abbas, by the way, had the fatwa that the two unforgivable sins are shooting and murder that was his fatwa. This position is now not mainstream, as you know, the majority of Sahaba and later a holy sunnah. They said, If

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

For a merger, repents, insha Allah there's also forgiveness he makes co founder but even Abbas had the fatwa and we're going to hear it now that the murderer has no Toba. He said, What did you say? Toba for the oxen for the murder? I heard the prophets of Allah who I knew he was selling them say that the one who was murdered will be resurrected, headless, he will be carrying his head in his own hands, the blood is going to be pouring out, dumping out and he will raise his head to Allah and say, Oh Allah, so and so kill me, Oh Allah, so and so kill me and he will proceed until he reaches the Throne of Allah azza wa jal, and Allah azza wa jal will respond to him. If an Abbas had what

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

Tober How can there be Toba for the otter

00:05:47--> 00:06:27

and this is based on a verse of the Quran as well by the way this is a Hadith in Muslim by Muhammad that he heard the Prophet says that I'm saying this based on the Quran as well, that whoever kills innocent men and a Muslim men soul he shall be in now to Johanna Maha didn't fear. The word Khalid is used in the Quran. It's only used for two sins Sheikh and also once it is used for murder. By the way, I understood the later onset, Allah didn't say Holly Dena, Abba da, the word Abba is not there. Hardly done could also mean a very long time. That's the technical, you know, the theological way out. Nonetheless, Ibn Abbas held the view there is no the one who does murder. That's it, it's gone.

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

Now, why am I mentioning all of this, we see what is happening in the land of fellows thin.

00:06:35--> 00:06:55

We see what is happening with innocent souls of the children women, we see what is happening of buildings collapse and bombs falling. One of the most highest concentrated places on earth is the open air prison that they call casa, the open air prison. One of the highest concentrations and we see what is happening over there.

00:06:56--> 00:07:03

Well, law he one side is sad, traumatized, but I'm going to say something, don't misunderstand me.

00:07:04--> 00:07:51

One side of me is extremely elated. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala will never allow such blatant. such blatant injustice to flourish. It is impossible in the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa taala, that innocent lives are taken, children are killed and nothing happens. So in sha Allah hooter, Allah in sha Allah, this is the beginning of the end. This is the beginning of the end, the level of brutality, the level of desperation, the level of given the level of Jabba route that we are seeing, and even from this entity, we did not expect it and we are seeing it right you're lying in sha Allah, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:07:52--> 00:08:31

in Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah whom he wrote for them, Allah subhana wa Taala sometimes allow some leeway to the volume. The volume Hill means gives him some time he lets him go for either a father who when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada holds on to him. This is what spiritual guru said in bottleshop, big Alicia de Bachchan, Arabic needs the grasp. Of course, it means you're the Power of Allah in the bookshop because Russia did when Allah wants to grasp when Allah wants to take his hand and take the Lord and who can possibly be saved from that our Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah might give laxity to the longing for a period of time. But when he holds on to him, not

00:08:31--> 00:09:10

if when for either it's not a possibility, it's not a maybe know. When the Lord him is holding held account, he will never let him go, let him you flee to never going to be able to escape the grasp. And this is exactly what I recited in the first verse and the first struck out as well, that Allah subhanho wa Taala said, and this was revealed when the Muslims were being persecuted, and the Muslims were being killed and they saw with their own eyes Sahaba being torn apart a mountain so may have been killed in front of their eyes below being dragged in the streets of Makkah. When they were seeing this What did Allah revealed, sort of Abraham I recited it is a McCue Surah middle makansutra

00:09:10--> 00:09:16

When the other was at its pinnacle, what seven nulla how often and volume on

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

off enough don't ever think that Allah is not aware of what the volume is doing? This IO was revealed in the context of either in the context of persecution in the context of death and fitna and facade one seven know how often and body mon never ever think that Allah is not aware of what the volume do in them are you a hero whom Allah is letting them Allah is gonna get take care of them but maybe not in your timeframe but Allah has a timeframe and if this dunya we see it on hamdulillah if we don't see it in this dunya then for sure the Yeoman hisab for sure on the Day of Judgment more clarity in a walk on are you to see him lie on today lay him perform work either to him

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

So go read the Tafseer of these verses and of Surah Ibrahim. Allah describes the terrified state of the volume on their eyes are glazed, their hearts are empty. their chests are in the throat. They're looking in panic. They don't know what to do. The vivid imagery that is given is for the volume monitoring in a

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

lie you're tied to them.

00:10:21--> 00:10:58

To him, sir, and then Allah subhana wa Tada says, How could you have done this? You lived in this world? And you saw the fate of those before you? Didn't you pay attention. Allah spoke to the Quraysh. You were here? What's the Kanto? fimasartan, Ely, Nevada? One full circle, whatever he gave him, you saw what happened to those people? Why didn't you pay attention and ask for this particular home, they don't even need to see outside of their own home to see what happens to tyrants. And what happens to those who reject Allah, they don't even need to look at outside history. Their own history is enough of a lesson if they only benefited and learn but they have turned a blind eye and

00:10:58--> 00:11:40

they have done to Innocence what others did to them at a time when they might have been innocent. And they have taken on the tactics and the Kibber and the brutality of the very people whom they said never again now many academics and many people are drawing comparisons with exactly what this poem is doing with what happened to them. 8090 years ago, the tactics are the same, but the sides have flipped. And just like that coal went into oblivion. So to Allah azza wa jal will not allow any home based upon injustice to flourish. So brothers and sisters, Allah He Our hearts are very, very perturbed, and they should be but in sha Allah, we also have a good sign and a good news that this

00:11:40--> 00:12:23

level of Jabba route, this level of Kibera, this level of evil, this level of whom Allah azza wa jal will not allow for it to flourish. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that fear that you are of the one who is oppressed, fear the dua of the Muslim, the innocent woman who has lost child after child and then she comes in says that hamdulillah Allah bless my children to be Shaheed the father who died, who sees his child die and he says, Allah has chosen him instead of me to be the Shaheed that is what you call Iman, these are a people whose Iman doesn't have to be tested. It has been shown but not yet. I mean, we see it we see the reality of Eman what will these tyrants do when

00:12:23--> 00:13:04

that mother raises her hands and says Ya rugby or they could be hot hula what will the tyrants do when that father that 80 year old man raises his hands and says Europe I lost four children and my wife my entire life is all gone in front of my eyes and I still thank you for all that you have given me but y'all Rob take care of those tyrants and volumes will Allah he the greatest superpower on earth will be powerless when the idea of Allah comes down no missile drone no Star Wars program no nuclear force can protect against allows other when Allah says good fire corn so our job brothers and sisters our job what can we do here? Make dua raise awareness, but always remember that insha

00:13:04--> 00:13:45

Insha Allah, Allah in Nasir Allah He studied in Nasir Allah He studied in Nasir Allah Hikari keep on repeating this verse have Iman intoa could have personally been in Allah subhanho wa Taala and then ask Allah for forgiveness for our own in capacities and incapabilities ask Allah azza wa jal that he doesn't call us to task and he doesn't call it put upon us a burden more than what we can bear.
