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

So now, just less than a mile from where we stand today, five machines were desecrated five machines Alhamdulillah Hello Bill alameen

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

wa salatu salam ala l mursaleen.

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

molana Muhammad wa ala early he was high V woman Serbia home their son, Elijah Medina back, respected brothers, elders sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

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

I thought I'd say a few things regarding

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

the global and the local incidences which have happened in the last week

00:00:48--> 00:01:00

and reflect on how the Quran and Sunnah expects us to behave when we are afflicted with a difficulty.

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

Now the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the Quran,

00:01:07--> 00:01:11

whether the cooloola roofie sebelah him What

00:01:13--> 00:01:21

do not say regarding those who have passed away in the path of the Lord, that they are dead.

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

So what we have seen in New Zealand

00:01:25--> 00:01:32

last week, or wherever they may be martyrs, Allah Pamela Allah says, Do not say that they are dead

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

because they have been martyred in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

but yeah, on Allah says they are alive. Well, a killer

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

but the problem is that you don't have the ability to comprehend.

00:01:49--> 00:02:02

See me and you know, life and death and may in you understand life and death, black and white, nothing else. Either you're alive or either you're dead.

00:02:04--> 00:02:14

I'll in Allah subhanho wa Taala has a different understanding of a year of life which you and I cannot comprehend.

00:02:16--> 00:02:28

And then straight after this was very interesting, right after this verse, Allah, Allah reminds us, Allah said, What another blue one can be shaped in Manila home V will do

00:02:29--> 00:02:38

that surely guaranteed 100% every single person from the time of Adam until the final person will be tested.

00:02:39--> 00:02:54

You will be tested by Shay in mental health, with some fear in your life, some turmoil in your life, you will go through this you will have some part in your life you will have some difficulty while jewelry, hunger

00:02:56--> 00:03:10

will knock seminal work and a decrease meant a decreasing in your wealth will enforce and life you may have people who are close to you, who leaves this dunya

00:03:11--> 00:03:24

by natural causes. And then you have those who are martyred in the path of a loss Pamela, this is guaranteed was wrong. And then Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, also

00:03:25--> 00:03:42

the fruits what you have sown in this dunya your business or whatever you do, that you may be a millionaire one day and bankrupt the next day. This is life and Allah will surely test every single person.

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

But then Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

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

what should I believe it?

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

Allah says, For bush well, Bashir Slavia de

00:03:55--> 00:03:58

give glad tidings to the ones who have Sapa

00:03:59--> 00:04:11

that when you are afflicted with a calamity or difficulty, which every single person is, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells you the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell these believers to suffer.

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

have supper.

00:04:15--> 00:04:39

And not only does he say have supper, no, Allah says, Well Bashir is slobbery give them glad tidings to those who do suffer because they abode by Allah subhanho wa Taala is locked in unreason, the Messenger of Allah, Allah alayhi wa sallam said he man belief is two paths. believe his two paths a man and sugar

00:04:41--> 00:04:41

that's it.

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

A man and a man is two paths.

00:04:47--> 00:04:51

Summer and sugar. That's it somber and sugar.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

And this is why the brothers Allah Allah wa sallam said, said I marveled at the state of a believer. Look at it. So Pamela I marvel at the state of

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

A believer

00:05:02--> 00:05:08

that when he is given a new man a favor he does sugar, a lot of water.

00:05:10--> 00:05:18

And when he is tested by Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah tala tala tests him and he does suffer, he's still rewarded

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

every moment of your life.

00:05:23--> 00:05:49

No matter what situation you are in, happy, sad, depressed, miserable, glad every single moment of your life can be turned into something which last panel Allah gives you glad tidings about you marvel at the state of a believer. If you're sad you're still a winner because you do suffer. And if you're in the state of favor and sugar

00:05:51--> 00:05:54

you use danka last panel, you still a winner.

00:05:55--> 00:06:06

And unraced in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went far as to say, le mano a mano who was Saba Eman believe is sobre

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

la ilaha illAllah. Believe is suburb

00:06:12--> 00:06:25

and this is how important sober is in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, who are these bestiaries Liberian who are the siberie? What do they do?

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

What is that they are patient but what do they say?

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

Allah Allah Vina Eva or Slava Tomasi

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

all in

00:06:38--> 00:06:52

that whenever embassy but a difficulty afflicts them, what do they say to a mosque? Allah, they say in La La, la Raji. They say Allah, whatever has happened to me.

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

Whatever is happened to me, ultimately it came from you and they returned.

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

A Jeep

00:07:04--> 00:07:13

whatever you have, you have millions and they disappear overnight. In Allah, he was in Nigeria.

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

A while you gave me those millions. And you took them away.

00:07:21--> 00:07:32

They came from you alone, they went to wait, ultimately like me and you have come from Allah, we will go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. A day will come that you and I

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

will go back to the last month or so everything else is secondary. Your parents

00:07:40--> 00:07:53

and Allah decide to take your parents away difficult. By the end of the days, in early law, he was in an era June, a one law they came from you and they have gone back to you.

00:07:54--> 00:08:03

And this is why there was a woman. It's a habia. Her name was Miss alma roseola and her and a husband was Abu Salma.

00:08:05--> 00:08:11

And Abu Solman, oma sama, loved each other. They were like the perfect couple.

00:08:12--> 00:08:17

So Abu somehow passes away and or maybe someone is grieving.

00:08:18--> 00:08:22

A husband like Abu Salah, you know, the perfect husband.

00:08:23--> 00:08:37

So one of the Sahaba of the Allah and him went to obey Salma, and he said, Miss Alma, so why not tell you a dua, which the professor wa sallam told us when you are afflicted with the difficulty. And she said, Of course told me that

00:08:39--> 00:08:43

she said the message of a law said say in early law he won in June.

00:08:44--> 00:08:53

So in early law, he went in earlier June, and then read Aloma agility, mercy, but he was roughly Hiraman.

00:08:54--> 00:08:57

Allah reward me in this difficulty, I'm going to

00:08:59--> 00:09:18

reward me for this give me a job. Let me see on the day of gentlemen. But not only that, that's in the era. But in the dunya Allah give me better than that I had before. Give me better than abou sama. She couldn't have dreamt that anything could have been better than Abu Salah.

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

She makes this dua

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

she finishes it.

00:09:25--> 00:09:29

And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam proposes to

00:09:31--> 00:09:39

and the Messenger of Allah Marisa. And then she realized that the word this dua, the power and they said to her

00:09:41--> 00:09:48

only son in law, look how Allah subhanaw taala gave you better than abou sama roseola.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

And this is faith. This is belief in Allah He we're in an era June that everything comes from a mass panatela and everything goes back to a mass

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

panel of Allah

00:10:02--> 00:10:06

and if you're if your Eman is strong in the time of mercy

00:10:07--> 00:10:24

that inshallah you will get through it. But if you're in mind and Allah subhanho wa Taala is weak in the time of masiva, then you will find difficulty one line. You know, you know you I've been watching these interviews of some of the individuals in New Zealand whoa a lot.

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

One lie they imagined is one of to be envious of

00:10:31--> 00:10:35

the sister who lost her husband and son. Do anybody see that interview?

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

You see, they asked her would you go back to the machine, she said, of course, I'd go back to the machine.

00:10:43--> 00:10:54

She didn't feel sorry for herself. She didn't even feel sorry. Although she was loved. She was grieving over a loss. She didn't feel sorry for her husband and her son, who did she feel sorry for

00:10:55--> 00:11:00

the murder the terrorist who had no compassion in his heart.

00:11:02--> 00:11:08

And they will lie when I watched that interview, I thought Subhana Allah, this is a man even I am envious of.

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

This is a man who in early law,

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

or law, you gave me my husband, you gave me my child. And now you have taken them away, and the day will come 5060 7080 years and we will all go back to our last panel or

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

your so as you see a man because he understand.

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

above everything else in this world, there is

00:11:38--> 00:11:45

everything, the greatest oppressor above the greatest oppression. Professor in this dunya is Allah.

00:11:47--> 00:11:57

Even if you are the lowest of the lowest understand above everything else, last panel, but it's the belief having that belief that above everything is Allah.

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

When musala salatu salam

00:12:03--> 00:12:21

left from your own, he took his people around, got tired of all the Assad from Allah subhanho wa Taala. His people were slaves, the bunny Hassan II. And then the cop said to Pharaoh, they say, Look, you've been humiliated for your own, you're the Lord.

00:12:22--> 00:12:25

You will allow these slaves to leave.

00:12:27--> 00:12:39

So far out says okay, we'll deal with them. So he prepares his army in all this myton in all its glory. The body is raw, ILA happy.

00:12:40--> 00:12:46

After years and years of captivity as slavery, they free today.

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

And they're going and they're free. And they reach the river. And they're about to cross the river, and all of a sudden they look back.

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

And when they look back, who do they see?

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

They see the sea, the army of your own, the powerful army of your own, and all is in the old his people.

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

So they look behind, they see this army, they look in front of them and they see

00:13:17--> 00:13:22

the river, they can't go back and they can't go forward.

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

And in the state of desperation,

00:13:28--> 00:13:35

they say and Allah records in the Quran, when the people of Musa la salatu salam said, in Allah moutoku

00:13:36--> 00:13:45

we will be captured and we will be butchered by fear out if we go into the sea we drove. If we waited, we will be butchered.

00:13:47--> 00:14:05

And moose la salatu salam is seeing exactly the same thing as them. He sees the river in front of them. He sees the army behind them. What did he say? He said, kala never in my era. He said never because you know why? I have my lord with me.

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

Above Pharaoh is Allah.

00:14:09--> 00:14:27

Above all is Allah is a never because with me is my lord is really interesting. Why he doesn't say with us is our Lord. He says with me is my Lord. Why although all of them were saved, because his Eman was such that he trusted in Allah

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

and Allah subhanaw taala saved him in that difficulty.

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

So understand

00:14:35--> 00:14:47

that everything comes from Allah and everything returns from Allah, every masiva and difficulty that you have is from Allah subhanaw taala but it depends on your Eman

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

how you deal with it. If you trusted Allah, even in the time of difficulty, you will get rewarded. Not only will you get rewarded

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

If you make dua to Allah, Allah, Allah will give you better than that.

00:15:06--> 00:15:21

You look, you look at the difficulties in the time of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all the difficulties in the time of the prophets, Allah Salah. You look how he stayed firm imaginisce this is the year known as

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

the year of of grief in the life of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam.

00:15:30--> 00:15:39

Why is it known as amla, Frozen, because this was the year his uncle passed away and his wife passed away. He has no protection, nothing at all.

00:15:42--> 00:15:54

He anybody can attack him. He's like Bilal, and Amar, he has no protection from the people of H. If anybody wants to kill him, they are now they he is open game.

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

So what does he do?

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

He goes to life.

00:16:02--> 00:16:06

And he calls the people of five the leaders to Islam.

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

And he also asked them for protection.

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

They don't embrace Islam.

00:16:16--> 00:16:40

They don't give him protection. And then he asked him, okay, you don't want to embrace Islam. You're not gonna give me protection? Did I ask you one thing, please don't tell the people of your age. Because if they know I came to you, and you didn't give me protection, then it will be even okay? Even braver in attacking me. What do they do? They send a message to the people of courage, telling him that your man will humble does come to us, and we run him out of us.

00:16:42--> 00:16:55

And they said the merchants and the low life of the city behind the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they told him until his he bled so much that his shoes stuck to his feet.

00:16:58--> 00:17:27

maginnis. This is the most difficult time in the life of the Messenger of Allah when I shadowed the Allah and harass the mystery of Allah. So Allah told me what was the most difficult time in your life? The brothers are Muslims are the most difficult time in my life was five. Look at some hamama no man in the history of humanity had to carry the burden that the Messenger of Allah carried and he's saying that is the most difficult time of my life.

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

And then he comes out

00:17:32--> 00:17:47

and says roseola and Hussein's Timo messenger of Allah, the people of Makkah driven you out. The people of tyfa driven you out? You can't really go to Makkah because you're open game. What do you want to do a messenger of Allah.

00:17:48--> 00:18:00

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Jose, let me tell you something, most difficult time in his life. He said, Jose, let me tell you something. Allah will never forsake his Nabhi

00:18:02--> 00:18:07

Allah will never forsake his Nabhi Why? Because he's trusted him.

00:18:09--> 00:18:14

He believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he sends a message

00:18:15--> 00:18:21

to the people of Makkah on the outskirts of Makkah, is there anybody who would give me protection

00:18:22--> 00:18:27

and multimedia as he says, I will give you protection.

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

And he tells everybody in Makkah that nobody lay a finger on Ahmed and he bought his camera and he made the Messenger of Allah right behind him.

00:18:37--> 00:18:39

What a minute. It wasn't a Muslim.

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

He died on

00:18:43--> 00:19:03

the Messenger of Allah said, on the Battle of butter when they captured 70 of the missionary key. They say he said if Muslim if he was alive here today, and Muslim and he said to me, oh, Mohamed, free all 70 of them, I would free every single one of them. And I wouldn't even ask for a penny.

00:19:05--> 00:19:09

I would ask for a penny. Why because he never forgot the axon.

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

The good

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

of Gothenburg

00:19:15--> 00:19:41

and, you know, I've been analyzing, you know, the last weeks. And one lie. You know, you see a glimmer of this honestly, in the Prime Minister of New Zealand, I've been watching her the way she's conducted herself, the way she's behaved, the empathy, the compassion, even the people of New Zealand. Imagine this few hours before they had the tumor. 1000s of people came out

00:19:42--> 00:19:49

exactly what the merger wanted to achieve what the terrorist wanted to achieve. They turned it on his head.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

People came out in the 1000s

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

and she led by leadership that was given on national TV Juma was perfect

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

on national TV, you know, I've heard one lie many a time this statement where they say that the blood of a martyr

00:20:08--> 00:20:13

rings the oma to life one lie. This is a sign of the blood of the martyrs bringing the number two.

00:20:16--> 00:20:27

I was thinking about her. And I was thinking how she would compare to any of the other Western leaders. And although this is in the south,

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

no, sir, the southeast, but it's a Western culture. That's why it's known as the West New Zealand.

00:20:35--> 00:20:53

And I was thinking, well, I don't think there is a prime minister in the entirety of the West, who would behave like she did Muslims Get it? Can you imagine our own Prime Minister? Can you imagine our own MPs? They will twist this some way or the other.

00:20:54--> 00:21:13

Newspapers their press, which is one of the main one has the name of every single monitor, with the head title as Salah. Can you imagine the Telegraph, the independent, the Daily Mail doing anything of that nature? Now they were talking about the angelic curly haired, blue eyed blonde boy.

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

Do you remember

00:21:17--> 00:21:38

when one of the cage members spoke about Johnny, Johnny jihad, or Dr. Johnny, and he spoke how he used to be a good guy once upon a time. You remember how the press went after cage? How the MPs went? They haven't forgiven them until today. Sorry for you to say it.

00:21:42--> 00:21:55

Clearly hate blue eyed, was made radical because he paid what? Because he played games, you know, violent games. That's what made him radical. What about the 73 pages he wrote?

00:21:59--> 00:22:12

You see, really? How many schools even if they are 90% Muslim, even if they are 90%. Muslims? Had a one minute two minute silence in Birmingham, for what happened in New Zealand.

00:22:13--> 00:22:19

I asked my daughter I said Did your school which is 90%. Muslim? Did it happen? No. They said it's too far away.

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

Oh, it's too far away.

00:22:23--> 00:22:26

Yeah, because you only see white, white is close. Everything else is far.

00:22:29--> 00:22:34

And this is a reality. And see, you see the ripple effects of this? The ripple effects.

00:22:35--> 00:22:44

So now, just less than a mile from where we stand today. Five machines were desecrated five machines.

00:22:46--> 00:23:13

When did they start? This didn't start last Friday in New Zealand. Let me make it quite clear. This started 19 years ago, when the politicians have had an open day on the Muslims, where the media have had an open day on the Muslim way the government has been listening to right wing think tanks, who only have one motive really one motive to remove Muslims from public life. That's it.

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

And it's amazing, isn't it? Even.

00:23:18--> 00:23:24

Even some of our politician, Muslim politician, all of a sudden since last week have found their faith.

00:23:26--> 00:23:44

All those since the beginning of their political career have have tried to distance yourself from the Muslim community, all of a sudden, because they had the sympathy of the entire world. It took the sympathy of the entire world for you to come up and now defend your community.

00:23:46--> 00:23:48

And I say this I've said it before.

00:23:49--> 00:23:55

You know I do not see one Muslim male politician who will defend the Muslims.

00:23:57--> 00:24:02

They speak about anti semitism they speak about everything else racism but never by Islamophobia.

00:24:05--> 00:24:13

You have more hope. You have more hope from the female politicians than you do have from these guys series. You know exaggeration.

00:24:15--> 00:24:19

You look at Shabana Mahmood, she been vocal regarding this and the RSC.

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

You look at Salma, Yaqoob iraq war she stood up

00:24:26--> 00:24:36

and who say that what he resigned, resigned, resigned her post because of conservative stance on Palestine resigned.

00:24:37--> 00:24:41

And you show me one male Muslim politician

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

who's really made a stand.

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

None of them.

00:24:47--> 00:24:50

None of them and this is why I say you know, these guys should go home.

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

Take their wives to do bangles

00:24:56--> 00:24:57

and make a lie.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

And don't forget to save your

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

mother in law first,

00:25:02--> 00:25:13

because that's the reality. But you know I say this, they can attack the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah will protect his houses, they can attack his own Leah.

And he had an aura about when he entered the room, you know that this man has entered the room. So he goes to meet abraha and Abra is sitting on his throne when he sees him. He descends from his throne.

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

00:26:06--> 00:26:10

And because Abdulmutallab has sat on the floor, opera even sits on the floor.

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

He sits on the floor. And then he says, What can I do for you old man here.

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

So the grandfather of the Messenger of Allah says, You know, I have some camels which you have stolen, I want those camels back.

00:26:28--> 00:26:44

So he looks at him and he says, I have come to destroy your copper, your holy place. And the only thing that you are concerned about is your camel. He said, I descended from my throat when I saw you, but all my respect for you is gone out to the window.

00:26:45--> 00:26:49
