It was sleep very

late, a lady Obama whom enduring

00:02:48--> 00:03:07

It's so beautiful how Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the different boundaries and blessings that He has given humanity in general, but also specifically gives us the example resembled in the people of polish. The people of the prophets of Allah Valley was

00:03:09--> 00:03:39

everybody was coming to Mecca. People were making the pilgrimage. This was one of the what remained of the teachings of Ibrahim alayhi salam, people are coming to mepco until one person, one king coming from IVC and decided that he was going to destroy the Kaaba, Allah subhanho wa Taala took care of him and that army. And then Allah said to the people of Makkah to the people of Quraysh. By the familiarity of the people of

00:03:40--> 00:04:03

the family, it was a journey during the wintertime. And during the summertime, Allah said that the blessings that he has extended to them, he said, worship the Lord of this house. And live he Obama whom in June, who fed them against hunger, well, and Amanda whom in house and gave them security against

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

when they speak about the needs of humans. They say that our physiological need is the most important. We humans in order to survive, we must have water, we must have food, and we must have a these are the basic physiological needs of a human being. They say that in the hierarchy of needs, the one that comes immediately after our physiological needs is the issue of safety. We humans must feel safe.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

We have to be in a world where most of it is predictable and familiar. That which is unpredictable, and unfamiliar is not good for us. We want to make sure that we are safe within our jobs where we live. We're not afraid of authority. We're not afraid of nature, but rather we are in harmony with nature.

00:05:00--> 00:05:57

So after our physiological needs come up conveyed our safety, our need for safety and that is why Allah commands the people. He said worship your Lord, who has met your physical needs upon whom he is fed you against hungry when a man or woman home and granted you safety, the second requirement for humans to function as if we cannot watch a lot properly unless we have our physiological needs met and we have the need of safety also met and that is why feeling safe is such a great blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala especially nowadays, where there is so much chaos and safety in so many parts of the world. We are blessed where we are to say that hamdulillah we have safe

00:05:58--> 00:06:03

our messages in Mission Viejo, the safest city in the state of California,

00:06:05--> 00:06:16

the second safest city in the entire United States. Those of us who live in Orange County on handle the most blessed

00:06:17--> 00:06:21

and that blessing requires a lot of Alhamdulillah

00:06:23--> 00:06:36

because many people today do not have the safety that we have. Get on your car, drive around go to school come to the message handler very says you don't even think about it.

00:06:37--> 00:06:46

Imagine you are part of the people SWAT in Pakistan nowadays. We're over 2 million people have been displaced.

00:06:47--> 00:07:02

Imagine that you are a resident in Sri Lanka was 7000 people have been killed 14,000 people have been injured. Imagine that you are that Palestinian who's been living the life of a refugee for the past 61 years.

00:07:04--> 00:07:38

This is the commemoration of the Nakba, the great catastrophe. 530 villages were obliterated, they were depopulated by the Zionists. You look into this and you say Alhamdulillah Allah has granted us a lot of safety. And that safety requires that we be grateful for what Allah Subhana Allah has given us. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a Muslim should never be guilty of jeopardizing the safety of the people that are around you.

00:07:40--> 00:07:47

Seldom men cannot be given why wildlife is nothing, what I mean a natural power

00:07:48--> 00:08:39

agenda whosoever earns of lawful needs, Whosoever business himself in reviving the tradition of the Prophet peace be upon him. And whatsoever the people are safe in his or her presence is that such a person deserves paradise, as if a Muslim cannot be a source of feed, but rather a Muslim is always supposed to be somebody that encourages and promotes and displays safety all the time. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not tolerate people instilling this least amount of fear into the hearts of people. You know, sometimes with joking you hide behind the corner, a person walks by and you make a sound to scare them. That is not funny. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:08:39--> 00:09:14

wasallam never enter we're in movement, the Prophet peace upon him for debate. Even jokingly scaring a fellow believer, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam forbade the bringing of arms into the market, because the market is not a place where people bring in their guns in their knives on their swords. The market is people where people need to be safe and do their business transactions. Not only this, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam for Bailey playing with pebbles has now Rasulullah sallallahu it was Can

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

I do what I can

00:09:20--> 00:09:59

is it don't play around with pebbles when you're in public throwing it up and down and play it don't do that. It neither harms an enemy but it definitely pokes an injured somebody ice. The point is what as Muslims, we have to be a source of safety, Grant safety to those who are around us. But not only this, but also what in the improvement of the safety of the people who are around us. You know, Islam does not only ask that we give charity. Islam also says where that charity is supposed to go. Not only that, but Islam remembers the people

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

Who will most likely be marginalized and the people that will most likely be forgotten and in a different places. Allah subhanaw taala reminds us of those who are homeless. Not only this but beautiful is the words of the Quran What does the Quran call them? The unconstant urbanicity

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

will still be there.

00:10:24--> 00:10:31

When you're starting a new segment in Saudi Arabia semi lacking leaf cutting in Sabine hifu unknown

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

move on page one,

00:10:42--> 00:10:49

we will have an insane levita who has a mobile business savvy and beautiful is the expression of the

00:10:50--> 00:11:28

ankles. A person who is homeless does not qualify as they call them the children of the street. Not that the street is their father, but supposedly children belong in their homes, they need to be protected there. And these people are supposed to be spending most of their time in their walls and their home became the street. So as such they are be known to be admissible in a different places in the Quran. Allah reminds us of the homeless, the people that we see around. Imagine this. Those of us who live in Orange County,

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

it hosts Disneyland,

00:11:32--> 00:11:58

Knott's Berry Farm, all the beaches that are around us Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, all this big shows Desperate Housewives. It is the OC the choppers it is Huntington Beach. It is Surf City in Orange County is the second country of per capita as far as homelessness is concerned in the entire United States in Orange County.

00:11:59--> 00:12:07

This beautiful place 500 Fortune companies have their offices here yet. We ranked number two Indonesia

00:12:08--> 00:12:44

per capita of people who are homeless. 16,422 students in the Anaheim school district are homeless 16,000 only in the unheimlich School District students are homeless. They say that their parents they park by the school so that in the morning, the parents can use the bathroom so that they can brush their teeth and wash their faces. This is not happening in Africa. It's not happening in South America. It is happening here white here in our own Orange County.

00:12:45--> 00:13:05

He said What is going on? This is indeed a strange world that we live in with all this beauty with all this affluence in Orange County 55,000 homeless people. You're also even more interesting. If you are homeless, and you're sleeping in the park, you get a ticket.

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

So imagine this, you get a ticket? Well, luckily, I have been in court when people were ticketed for being homeless.

00:13:14--> 00:13:25

I could not I said that's impossible. How can that be a person's ticketed? Because they're homeless? I am homeless because they have no place to go to get a ticket for that.

00:13:26--> 00:14:11

Unbelievable. Unbelievable. That's such a thing is happening in our world. So imagine that you are homeless? Can you really feel safe. So these people are mentally disturbed. And if they are not being homeless will make you mentally disturbed. Imagine you are this young girl who has no place to go to and you're constantly afraid of being raped. You're constantly afraid of being mugged. You're constantly afraid of being attacked, there is no place to take a shower. Some of the people tell their stories and they say you know what, initially, we became so very feel free. So we would go to restaurants and use their bathrooms. And eventually we will be told that you can even come in so we

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

can even wash. So filth becomes a part of us.

00:14:17--> 00:14:59

And then we see the mountains and we'll look at them bounce. They're lazy, they don't want to work and we become very judgmental against them. We the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we're in a different places in the Quran. Allah reminds us of these people, what is it that will happen when miskeen over the city and give the rights to those who are next of kin to you, those who are poor, those who are needy, and those who are homeless. That is part of piety that will be out extending a helping hand to these people not throwing judgments and bad words against them. That is not acceptable, my processes

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

It is not acceptable. To begin with, with all this afterwards, who is all this money, it is not acceptable. And you know, they're talking about the budgets in California and what's going to happen with it. Guess who is going to suffer most, the poor and the needy, close down all the social reform programs cut down on all the help that we were given to the poor. So now the poor or even becoming poorer.

00:15:25--> 00:15:54

They speak about this issue of homelessness, which people losing their jobs, people can't afford it anymore. They spoke about this family said that, you know, we could not afford living in our apartment. Now we had to rent a hotel room in a hotel. But in the hotel, they will not allow you to live there for more than 25 days. Because if you live there for more than 28 days, you become a resident, they don't want you to be a resident. So they kick you out.

00:15:55--> 00:16:12

Instead, what happened, you have a room set, it's so bad. We have teenage girls and teenage boys, and there is no concept or sense of privacy when we are in that room. So that I kept my gym membership, so that there will be a place for me to take a shower in

00:16:13--> 00:16:58

Savannah, Panama. And that is why those of us who have places and they feel safe, this is definitely a time to say a long mirrabooka shakalaka hum. All praise is due to have lost a pint of water. Because we are so blessed. We have so much that we are very ungrateful for please remember that people in Paxton, imagine that one day you have a place. Imagine that you have your kids going to school, you had a job, you were able to go to the messages to perform your prayers. Your wife was going around visiting her family and visiting friends and working and what have you. And now all of this is gone. Your house is gone. Now you live in a tent, waiting for somebody to hand you some

00:16:58--> 00:17:09

charity and you are the person that were in charge of his or her own affairs. Imagine this that this is happening. And worse yet, it is happening in the name of Islam.

00:17:10--> 00:17:58

And worse yet, the perpetrators happen to be Muslims. That is just mind boggling. How do you do this in the name of God? How can you be guilty of something like this In the name of Allah? How can you be spreading the word of God while you are bringing in so much catastrophe into the people? How can you do that? And this is not about picking sides. But this is about what catastrophe what are the consequences of what is going on 2 million people, 2 million people are displaced. Look into the poor of Sri Lanka. 7000 people have been killed 14,000 people have been injured. Think about the people in Palestine being a refugee for 61 years, there is no sense of home there is no sense of

00:17:58--> 00:18:24

belonging there is no sense of stability. So if we have this, we must always say along Arabella shakalaka hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil aalameen that we have a place to protect us that we have a place where we feel safe, that we have a place where we can actually come in as a family and enjoy life and enjoy living. Unlike the people who are suffering around us. A hula hula Holly welcome first of

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

all

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

Alhamdulillah

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Mustafa wylam, and we are here.

00:18:47--> 00:19:38

Nowadays, it is so disturbing, to be looking into the images that are coming out of these places, be it in Somalia, beat in Pakistan, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine or all of this. There is so much misery that is going on. But so Panama remember that every incident like this is an opportunity to do good. And every difficulty like that is an illustration of what we humans are doing versus what we could have been doing. And the least that we can do is empathy. This feeling for these people to see an understanding and comprehending and becoming aware of the difficulties that they are going through. Because these are difficult times emerging. That was you imagine you're the one that could

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

not protect your family or be there for your family or just being so anxious, and being in so much anxiety and paranoia. When is the next missile going to come down? Where is the fighting going to break out? When are the rebels going to come in? When is the shooting going to start? When are you going to be mugged when are you And so much of this is going on and when

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

every blessing, Allah subhanho wa Taala expects that we be appreciative of the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us. And that is why in the Quran, the concept of prosperity is always linked with the idea of Shabbat that you'd be grateful to what Allah Subhana Allah has given us. alumina Eva da Shaco. Once Amara hapa was in the Kaaba, when he heard this better when making a drought he will supplicating to Allah. And he said along with me, Amina Lee,

00:20:35--> 00:21:08

me amongst the few. And Rama felt that this drought this application is so vague, and he went to the men and he said, What happened? What what kind of prayer? Are you making? Woman in a Leone? What are the few that you're speaking about? And the man looked at me and he said, don't you recite the book of Allah Allah, Allah for in Allahu wa de la manera de Shakur, he says, In the Quran, Allah states and very few of my servants are truly grateful. May Allah subhanaw taala make us grateful Europa.

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

So that is very important, my brothers and sisters, being

00:21:15--> 00:22:00

being agents of peace, being of those who extend a helping hand, when there is a need, being of those who recognize all these challenges, yet they want to do something about it, especially us being the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, beautiful is, are the concerns of the Prophet peace be upon him. The Prophet peace be upon him comes in. One way of one of one way of knowing about him is looking into what were the initial statements that he made? What was his concern at the very beginning? What kind of prayers did he make? Listen to this, the prophet peace be upon him used to pray Allah manias hot water, Coleman Corot, who have been Misaki or Allah,

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

I asked, that I be of those who are committed to the doing of good. I asked that I be of those who are committed to shunning evil, all Allah put in my heart, the love for the poor and the needy, how many people would remember to pray for the poor and the needy, not only pray for them, but he said, Allah put in my heart, the love towards the poor and the needy, that is deep. That is very considerate. That is very thoughtful of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And as his followers, we have to continue on this. Remember these people in your drought. Next time you see somebody on the corner of the street, don't even think yourself, oh, if I give it to him, you will probably use

00:22:43--> 00:23:33

it for drugs or he will use it for you know, to drink or he will use it. Come on man, this extensive good, do the good. Your responsibility is to help that person out of where they are. If they hold the sign things that I am hungry, you better give them remembering the Hadees Allah Subhana Allah will say to the person Yagna Adam stofan to me, is it also of Adam or child of Adam, I was hungry and you did not feed me and the person will say how can I feed you? And you are the Lord of the woods. And Allah will say did you not know about such and such person was hungry and you fed them not? Have you fed them? It was like feeding me Suppan, Allah Subhana Allah that is beautiful. This

00:23:33--> 00:24:14

is how important this issue is for us. And what we need to do is we need to act locally. Do something about whatever it is in the messages in your hours, your family, take your family out, to volunteer at the soup kitchen, the local homeless shelter and also the people out in the world who are suffering, remember them in your place and see if you can, if you can extend a helping hand to these to these people. May Allah Subhana Allah alleviate all the difficulties of the people be the the residents of Orange County or be they the people of Pakistan or the people of Allah or the people of Afghanistan or the people of Sri Lanka or the people of Palestine Kashmir, wherever they

00:24:14--> 00:24:32
