Do you see it today chakra
similar manner and hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina
Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi women severe hunger is only about a respected brothers
elders steam scholars, one on axon one on a flood and all those other scholars who may be here. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah
gives me great pleasure to be here. I have heard much good things about Manasa. May Allah Subhana Allah preserve him, even brothers who
spoke very highly when they met share. They were full of praise May Allah Subhana Allah all give us the last to respect our elders and our scholars.
It's quite surprising martial law. It's such a large turnout. If England, the sun is out, nobody is in the murshid would be totally and utterly empty but my shell lights
hamdulillah It's nice to see that so many people are attending.
that a human being can have is
a belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala
the most beloved thing to alarm that a human being can have is also email.
And I think a paste to it.
But what kind of eemaan does Allah subhanho wa Taala want a believer to have?
Allah says in the Quran, yeah, you will Edina amanu Aminu. Oh you believe believe?
If you are already believing, how can you believe as aplikasi says, the zeal and hassle Mahal?
If you already have something, then how can you have it again? Either you're a believer you're a disbeliever. So what does Allah subhanho wa Taala mean here? Yeah, you will Edina Armando Amina. Oh, you believe believe meaning, oh, you who believe become true believers.
Have a solid belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And this is why throughout the Quran, when ever literally all the time when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the attributes of EMA Allah subhanho wa Taala couples it with
good actions, while us Enlil inserra Luffy hosts. By time, the entirety of man is in loss. If I was to use a local vernacular, it would be that all of you are losers.
Every single one of you are losers, Elon levena am and what I mean by that, besides those who believe
and do good actions, and this is why when chef alabi he defines the Sahaba of the Allah and
he defines them he said if I was to point out one characteristics of the Sahaba, just one, one characteristic which stood out from all the others, which every single Sahabi had, it was that they were people actions.
They imagined propel them to do good actions.
And we are all what means here, we all believe is here. We're all Muslims here. But we need to ask ourselves, this imagine that we have does it propel us to do good actions? Because your weight in the scales of Allah is according to your sacrifice and your actions.
Mr. Muslim has related this,
that on the Day of Judgment, they will be a man, the Messenger of Allah defined as all humans mean on all women, a man who is huge, fat, huge mass, and he will be placed in the scale of our last panel.
But he would have no good actions, no concern for humanity.
He will be lighter than me
And another narration, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu and Abdullah de Masuda, rhodiola, who was climbing the tree, and Abdullah Nima, sudo, de Laval, very thin shins. So why if he's climbing the tree, his shins become exposed.
So the Sahaba begin to laugh at his thin shins. So the Messenger of Allah said, What's making you laugh. They said O Messenger of Allah, the thin shims of Abdullah Massoud.
The message of Allah said by Allah, if the thin shins or the lightning massud were placed in one side of the scale, and the mountain of a heart, you know, the mountain or hood goes on for miles.
And the mountain of a horse was placed on the other side of the scale. The thin shins of Abdulla de Masood would be heavier than the mountain of art.
Why? Because these thin shins were for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala every muscle, every ounce of meat, every vein, every drop of blood, which ran through them was for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah.
And this is why if you examine the history of this ummah, who are the heaviest in the scale of Allah, when de la salatu salam descended to the Messenger of Allah, and he said, O Messenger of Allah telling me out of the Sahaba, who are the best, and he said Allah Dena, shall he do better on those who participated in the Battle of battle?
Those who participated in the Battle of battle, and you better not to slam said similarly, those angels who are the best in the heavens are those who descended and participated with the Muslims on the Battle of butter.
What made the people of brothers special, they sacrifice. When nobody else was ready to sacrifice, they sacrifice they stood in front of an army of 1000 when they were 300, themselves, literally no weapons, no horses, but they trusted in Allah and Allah loves those who sacrificed for the sake.
And if you want to see a man in history, who sacrificed it was Salahuddin.
They say that the people of butter had full trust in Allah I say that Slovene had full trust in Allah. They say that the people of other numbers never scared them. I say that numbers never faced Salahuddin. He literally took on the entirety of Europe. But he was never scared. They say that the people have been fulfilled the right of his own masala has been fulfilled the right
they say the people have bothered to remain steadfast Allahu Deen state says fast. And finally, they say that Allah subhanaw taala granted victory to the people of bother Allah granted Salahuddin victory. As one historian says, He said it's almost like if Allah subhanaw taala kept backs Allahu de from the people of bother to deal with his enemies on another occasion.
And the greatest and the greatness of God can be ascertained by the fact that everybody claims God, even his enemies said we love Salahuddin.
When the bravery the kindness and the chivalry of Salah has been reached Europe. Europeans could not believe that a non white non Christian man could be so much so great.
so brave. So you know what they said? They were European said actually sallahu Dean was the son of a Christian Princess, who was captured by the Muslims. Then she married a man called Malik Kane. And then came Salahuddin.
Salafi says even Arab historians could not accept the fact that Salahuddin was occurred and not an Arab is that many of them wrote and they found his lineage back to the Messenger of Allah Allah salams lineage goes back to a demand. They wouldn't accept that a non Arab could achieve what Salahuddin achieved. But this is the amazing thing about this Omar.
This is what the Messenger of Allah created, he created salmaan the person below the Ethiopian So hey, the Roman, the unsolved and the muhajir rune the house in the village and he made them brothers. He made them one
They didn't look at color. They didn't look at race. They didn't look at your background. Why? Because that's shallowness.
See, when you look at a person's ethnicity, or you look at a person's color, and you judge that person's color, then who you really judging, have you ever thought about it? Who you really judging?
You're not judging that person because he didn't create himself a lot created him. You take in faults out of Allah.
When you judge a person by his looks,
who you take in faults out of, did he create himself? Or did Allah create him and if you judge a person by the color of his skin, or his looks, then you are taking defects out of out of the villa?
And this was the amazing thing about this Omar. Look at Mr. Dean a stinky look at new routine Ziggy.
They weren't Arabs. They were Turks but musty the Aqsa was their concern.
And today the fact that you are gathered here today is because must exercise your concern. Although you are not Arabs, but you are part of this Omar
use of tashfeen was a Berber
but when the Christians came into Spain, he was the first to go and assist
you know Muslim Spain
learn this lesson you know Muslim Spain
75% of the European Spanish and Portuguese embraced Islam.
People think that Islam in Spain was an Arab thing. It was never an Arab thing. It was initiated by the Arabs and the Berbers, the local 75% of the locals. The white Europeans embraced Islam.
Where are they now? Where is the legacy mom called to be my husband?
Erbil Maliki Rahmatullah Allah him gone because there was no finger left. Mashallah Cordova at one time was the second largest mustard in the world.
even larger than Machina, we
were at a Muslim for those who have been to Spain, we go every year to Spain.
We take a group and we teach them the history of Spain.
Many lessons can be learned for pain. One of the greatest problem was this oma this issue of race.
issue of looking at each other on the basis of your color.
And this was the miracle of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he created oma and we are at oma
and everything else is secondary.
Somehow being the mother says
when I was pregnant with Salahuddin I saw a dream that I had a sword from the sword of Allah subhanaw taala and my stomach Should I never realized what this actually meant. Approximately the time Salahuddin was born. He was born in the castle of Crete.
His uncle Scirocco, who was a majority in his own right,
fight with one of the gods because he violated the honor of a Muslim woman. He ended up killing him.
So the governor of Baghdad now had Slava Dean's entire family exiled from this castle.
Although his father was prominent in the castle,
allow the the little baby his father whenever he hears his son crying, he thinks possibly this misfortune fell upon them because of this child. So he becomes angry legible Dean becomes angry.
Until one of the Hardiman said you know, my master, this is a baby. He can't help he can't benefit he can't harm. This is the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala and do supper upon the decree for last pamper. Oh, amazing these words, because for Salah has been to achieve what Salahuddin was destined to achieve, he could not have done in the creed, he had to go to Mosul. Mosul was run by who? Mr. T. Mr. Dean was indebted to najman Dean the father of Salahuddin because upon occasion,
he was being chased by his enemies. And Salahuddin father gave him refuge in the castle.
So when sallahu Dean's father came to Mosul, Mr. Dean
accepted them with open arms not only to be accepted with open arms, he made them in charge of the regiments. So shuru shilka was in charge of one regiment. And Nigel Dean was in charge of the other regiment. And this is the environment in which Salahuddin grew up.
It was a military environment,
a brave environment. The historian mentioned never did a day elapse, without the mention of liberating machines.
Never did a day elapse without the intention of removing the Crusaders from the Muslim lands. But not only that, this is amazing. Mr. Dean was the founder of the madatha system.
So not only was he a majority, he was a scholar. He founded the mother system in that area. So So now he grew up being brave in a military environment and in a scholarly environment.
And brothers, sisters,
if you want to create a lot of beans within your community, then you have to invest with your children. You have to invest within your children.
Not only your children, your communities, not only your communities but other communities.
This is a oma you can't have a concern for sallahu de
or the Palestinians
in Palestine and not have a concern of the poor within your own community, of the Muslims in your own community. You can't have a concern for Syria and Palestine and say, Oh, those who come from poor areas are just a waste of time, stereotyping.
The real the real effort must be made here that you create a finger you know, you know, Subhan Allah, the first people will lie out of the English speaking people I ever saw with a concern for Palestine, where the capetonians
the first people I remember when I was studying here, in the West, nobody really had a concern.
They were the first people.
I remember the stories of how, you know, they would have conferences on Palestine, and there was a concern for Machina. This is very unique.
So Salahuddin studies and the amount of Dean Mr. Dean passes away, and then he has the honor of studying under the son of Mr. de nurudeen. Voila, you need an entire lecture on new routine. There would have never been a sallahu Dean. If there was a no new dean Thiele, the famous historian says.
I've studied the lives of the prophets that I've studied in life.
And I've studied the lives of all the kings since Omar Abdulaziz, the Muslims have never had a leader like new routine. You know what he was saying? For over 500 years. The Muslims never had a leader like nurudeen new dean was a Turk.
But you know the concern he had for the ummah.
the Crusaders had besieged a place called Damietta in Egypt, so no Rudy now comes with his army behind the Crusaders, but the Crusader barricaded themselves so he can't reach the Crusaders.
so new to the cold, the scholars and he says recite happy for me. So the in the battlefield and he's listening to Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam.
And then they come to Hades which is known as muscle
where Mazel Tov mythbuster means that is always been greeted with a smile. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrated it and he smiled, and then the Sahaba smiled, and then the Sahabi when he narrated it to a student, he smiled, and then he students style and then when a student narrated he he smiled all the way his muscles so bit, all the way.
So the new edition regenerates is the ratio any smiles and new routine doesn't smile. And he says the lower the smile is the sooner a new routine says How can I smile when Damietta is in the hands of the Crusaders?
How can I smile when Damietta is in the hands of the Crusaders? This was new the this was the man who Salah has been studied by
and Salah who had great virtues and no routine. So this so Savonarola, you certainteed, Damascus today sallahu Dean was in charge of the police force in Damascus.
He was in charge of this
Police Force in Damascus. The entire force was under Salah Howdy. They say Salahuddin did this at a very young age and he bought calm and tranquility back in as a poet says he says away the Camila Susu Sham in Nila Canarsie I mean you're coming samina be useless suffer a bit he will Jamali for worker nope they're at NASA has a nuclear ID Rizal is a runaway the Camila soussan said hang on fifths of Sham I am a good advisor to you. I am a trustworthy advisor yeah come in some maybe you suffer is a beware of the one who has the same name of the Prophet use of because salado Dean's name was Yusuf
Rabelais Jr. He will Jamal, the one who is the possessor of beauty and ockel.
As for that use of the nappy for verka, look, they are a de Missa Nana use of he used to cut the hands of the women, you know the story
when use of when, when salacia she fell in love with use of she was the wife of the Aziz.
So she fell in love with her slave. So all the other women, the Honorable women, the women of the dignitaries, they said look at this woman, she falls in love with the slave. And she's the wife of the Aziz.
What kind of woman is she?
You know, like today, you know, you know, how is somebody from a certain background? Once you marry somebody else? Oh, but you're Indian. You're black. You're Malay, you know, we can't marry you there. We are this cost. So she falls in love with it. So there's that saying how could she fall in love
with a slave. So what she did, she gathered all the women, all the women of the dignitaries and she gave him a knife and she gave him a apple.
And the Quran recalled this. And then she said,
cut the fruit. So we begin to cut the apple and then she says to us have come out. So usable Islamic Islam comes out. The Messenger of Allah said that Allah Spanish Allah granted useable a slump, slump, half the beauty of humanity
of the using your beautiful,
have the beauty of humanity.
And he comes out and they're cutting the apples. They cut through the apple, they begin to cut their fingers, but they're so immersed in the beauty of use of a slap, slap. They cut through and they don't even realize that they're cutting their fingers.
So the poet says for verka look there at Lisa that profit use of he used to cut the hands of the women, this use of salotti he cuts the hands of those who steal.
He cuts the hands of those who steal.
So what happens as Milan I mentioned earlier on the fourth amides they ruled Egypt. The termites were Shia. So adid the Salif and the leader of the termites
what happens is that the Christian the Crusaders now attack Egypt.
And he can look after his family. So what he does, he cuts the hair of his wife, and he takes some land some dust from the land of Egypt, and he sends it to Salah to know the meaning. Oh, no. I need help. I can't even look after my women now. I can't look after the land of Egypt. Please help me know routine originally was very reluctant. Why? Because the termites they had an alliance with the Crusaders. When the Crusaders killed 100,000 Muslims in Morocco, no man. The first termites came and they congratulated them. Can you imagine 100,000 Muslims who killed many of them? They actually starve them of water. They gave him no water. So this is how they died out of thirst because they
wanted them to tell them where their treasures work. They refuse.
So that's how many of them died. Many of them were cannibalized. The Crusaders actually had one regiment who were cannibals. So they will kill the people in front of the fort. They would cook those people eat them and the Muslim watching.
The fart termites came and they congratulated these people. So originally new dean wasn't interested. But I let the deed You know, he
He pleaded with a lot a bit naughty. So eventually noodle Dean chose shikaku the uncle of Salahuddin to go
so Scirocco goes to Salahuddin Stroud is in charge of the of the police in Damascus. And he says to Salahuddin, come with me, Salahuddin, I don't want to go. So why go Salahuddin says I want to become a scholar sallahu dedes ambition was that he wanted to become a scholar. He was a chef in fichte, which will make you very happy.
And he knew entire Sharpie texts on the top of his head.
He say refuses look at this as a loss in wasa and took a little shaken. Wahidullah his possibility that you dislike something, but it is better for you. If Salahuddin said I don't want to go, and he never went, maybe the history of our goods would have been different.
So possibility that you dislike something. But this hiring a Jew don't know Allah knows. So his uncle convinces him
and he goes with his uncle
to Egypt, his uncle sherco cleanses the Crusaders of Egypt. And then his uncle becomes the authority although a deed is still regarded as the ruler.
Six months later, his uncle Shinjuku passes away.
So the scholars say Who are we going to make the meal of Egypt? They look around and they see who's the most pious person. Salahuddin is the most pious person. So they make slow the young man young man but man of virtue, young man, and then choose low D now to be the amine.
The first thing Salahuddin did he removed all the taxes which were contrary to the Sharia were among Shafi Rahmatullah Allah is buried, he made a Medusa, Where's mom Shafi is buried.
They say about Salah Howdy. He was loved by the people. And this is why when Allah Dede passed away sallahu de now made an announcement that today Egypt will be sunny. They say no to Rams locked horns. Nobody disagreed because they love Salahuddin too much.
Egypt for over 200 years we see the largest Muslim Arab Muslim country in the world. 100 million people live in Egypt was Shia. And it was because of the burqa of sallahu de today that it is Sunni using Salah Houdini just liberate of all goods
of Egypt is suddenly today because of Salahuddin.
They say about Salahuddin
they say about Salahuddin that he never turned a beggar away. If Nirmala says is that I can swear by Allah. If so Allahu Deen had the entire dunya he would spend it in the path of Allah.
His treasuries would never tell him how much money they had in the Treasury, because he would spend all the money.
They say he never rode the horse, but he had already promised it somebody else.
And if they said dad says admission that is very interesting, if they should not is the biographer of Salahuddin. He finished his biography of sallahu. Dean on the day that sallahu Dean passed away. So your dad says I was one day I was riding the horse with Salahuddin and Salahuddin turned to me, and he said, there are people for whom
the dunia and the dust are the same.
For Whom the dunya and the desktop the same.
Ignition dad says I knew Salahuddin was talking about himself because he wasn't concerned about the dunya.
When Allah did passed away, the palace in which he passed away had 4000 rooms
12,000 occupants, the vast majority of them were females
salahaddin couldn't move their toes now the new moving slowly refused. He refused, said I won't move in. He divided amongst his soldiers and they lived in a palace Salah who did remain in his humble home.
So you look at Salah howdy and you see a liberal
The old slogan was far more than a liberal of God's
Sham and Salahuddin is Egypt. nuruddin Rahim Allah passes away
the entirety of Sham nows fragments. Every King every Prince has their own fiefdoms. Many of them draw treaties with a Christian and they begin to fight each other.
So the people of sharm right to Salahuddin and Sal Salahuddin, please come to her sisters, because these people were used to who know nothing.
They say when noodle Dean would become ill,
no routine would become ill the entirety of Syria would become ill. Today, Bashar becomes ill he has a headache. And everybody makes draw that a lot Take him away.
when new routine would go out into jihad, all the population would go out and do jihad.
Because he was a leader that they loved. Today, the vast majority of the population are fighting against the leader.
These are lessons history are we learn lessons from history?
Don't expect change from your leaders. You be the change.
We are always complaining about leaders and waiting for leaders Yeah, Al Hamdulillah. We make dua to Allah give him the trophy. But if you can't make a change, if you can't make a sacrifice, why are you expecting the leaders to make a change, make a change from the ground from the roots.
Be be motivated for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
You beat up every change.
So they write a letter to our Dean Salahuddin eventually decides to come.
They say the data, Salahuddin came into Damascus. It was like eat, the people were happy.
And then for the next 10 years sallahu been fought other leaders to bring the Muslim together.
He fought other leaders, they will give him bribes and sallahu de will refuse is that no bribery is that how can I negotiate with you when you are in one Valley and I'm in another Valley? What value was he attributing to them? To them he was actually booting the value of the dunya.
for himself he was attribute in the value of the ashes. Rahim Allah says he defines Salahuddin Chicano movement on hogben La, La La otan Islam. He said Salahuddin can have more men and Hakan said he was a true believer. The only language Lao Deen understood was the language of Islam.
He understood no other language, no other language of racism of tribalism. And this is why until today, many kids disliked slavery. Why would you like dislike Salahuddin because they say that Salahuddin did nothing for the people.
So these leaders, they unite against the lobby.
And they release a man who nurudeen had imprisoned for 15 years in Harlem. So in Harlem, Aleppo, what you hear about every day in the news, this man was imprisoned by neuro deep because he was an arch enemy of Islam.
His name original destruction, so they released him so he will be a thorn in the side of Salahuddin. The first thing Reginald shalom does, he gathers an army with the intention of going to Makkah and he says, I will go to Makkah and I will destroy the cup. And now Villa, I will go to Medina. And I will exude the body take out the body of the camel grazer and I will bring regarding the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and I will bring him back
to my castle, and I will charge them Muslim to see his body.
This is what he said.
So when you get shocked
when you get shocked, Muslim leaders aligning themselves with the enemies of Allah, Allah says in the Quran, Allah tacita listen to light Abdullah you will never see a change in the son of Allah subhanaw taala
Do not be overly shocked. This is a son of Allah subhanho wa Taala
they release a man. The lead is the Muslim need is released a man who says he's going to destroy the Kaaba and take out the body of the prophets. Allah
Absalom when Salahuddin heard this sellout, he took up his sword he stood up and he said, I swear by Allah, I will kill original with my own hands.
He sends an army.
The army routes the army original digital or destroys his arm before they reach Mecca. And this is why I'm in a job he says, he says I went for Hajj. He says when the hottie on Hajj, he made Diwan for the holidays in Baghdad, the People's Army.
Then he made
for the governor of Missouri and the people that ami is that then he made one for Salahuddin. He says the place erupted
wa sallahu did wasn't just the Liberator machine.
He was the protector of the haramain Sharifi, he was the true hardeeville harryman haramain Sharifi. So when you when you study the life of Salahuddin and you only know what angle of the life was allowed him Salahuddin was just amazing personality. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala gave a buck off to the vicar of Salahuddin to the remembrance of Salahuddin
look at how many years later we remember Salah howdy
because of what the man achieved four years later, and as the water the police
four years later,
four years later, four years after this incident.
What happens is that
there is a caravan traveling from Egypt to Sharpe ratios, the shakeela now intercepted his caravan
every time before he puts the Muslim to women and children to the soul. He says to them, you believe in Muhammad now ask Mohammed to help you.
And then he killed them. Salah who did his about this against Allah who takes out his sword and he says I swear by Allah, I will kill this man with my own hands. You know how much Salahuddin how much respect Salahuddin had for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
They say sallahu de never stood up and listened to a Hadith of the Prophet sallallaahu lives.
He would sit down whenever Hadees of the Messenger of Allah would be recited. He would sit down and he would listen to it. So after this occasion, Salahuddin now says to the Muslims, he said we will fight the Crusaders, the Muslim say, oh, Salahuddin don't fight them. There are too many number. We don't have the unity. Salahuddin says whatever happens happen by the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And nobody knows how long he's gonna live for. So let's take this opportunity. So Salahuddin, our masters an army, the crusade is a massive army. And Salahuddin takes his army to the place where the Crusaders, he sees the Crusader army very well. trenched. They have a very good position. So Salahuddin goes there, he lifts camp.
And he goes to a place of Fort nearby where the family of the Crusaders are.
And he lays siege to it.
Not only that, he also places his men to Ward's the sea, so the backs are towards the sea. So the Crusaders now are compelled to lift camp to save their families. But they also see the army of Salahuddin that their backs are towards the sea. And they think what push and they will be into the sea.
And that's exactly what Salahuddin wants him to think. It's an eight hour journey to West LA hoody for the Crusaders.
The Christians have with them, the most homeless relic, they have with them a portion of the crucifix which they believe that East LA salatu salam was crucified upon. They would say that we are one over 20 battled with a burqa of this relic. It was the most holiest relic. They believe that no non Muslim could actually place his hand upon it. So they lift camp early morning, eight hour journey.
On the waist Allahu Dena strategically placed arches.
So they begin to move. And these arches begin to shoot arrows. And from every direction, you have arrows. Their movement becomes a snail's pace. It's midsummer Salahuddin
poisoned all the welds on the way.
Night falls and they are far from the destination. They go towards the springs of his team
and the rest of his team midsumma no water and many of them are injured. And then Salahuddin encircled them.
The historian say Salahuddin encircled them them in such a manner that not even ant could come out. And they say, there were two types of cries. There was one cry from the Muslim camp and that was of Allah Akbar. Allahu Akbar. And there was a second cry from the Crusader camp, and that was the cries of the dying and the wounded and all night. The arrows are coming.
Come morning, after forges. Allah Salahuddin sees that the wind is now blowing in the direction of the Crusaders. And there's plenty of brushwood.
So sallahu de now lights the brush wood lights fire to it. So you've got no water, it's midsummer. And now you got smoke to deal with. And then Salahuddin Rahim Allah, He commands that they should attack.
And the Muslims are really reciting the verses logona How can Allah international momineen Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and it is a right upon us that we help the Muslims.
So the Muslim soldiers, they are attacking and they're all reciting. It is a right upon us that we assist the believers.
And they route the army. Slowly, slowly, they're out the army. And then Salahuddin wants to a psychological blow. So he gets a regiment and he says, you see that relic? there? holy relic. Go and get that relic. The only thing which was keeping them going was that relic
as allow the sensor Regiment, they get hold of the relic, and now they are totally demoralized.
As allow these sitting there.
And he's watching.
And literally, they're all running. There's only one camp one tent left. And his brother says we've won. Salahuddin say Not yet. Not until that camp false.
Eventually the camp falls.
Salahuddin What does he do? He jumps up say yeah, no, that wasn't Salahuddin
solo didn't get off his horse. And he goes into such that
he goes into frustration because we as believers know that victory comes with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala nothing else. When
he woke us to the Battle of Gods here, he said to sorry, he said Oh, sod remember, we have never ever lost a battle due to numbers and weapons.
Whenever we have lost battles is due to our own sins.
You know, you know Serato deep
in the shed dad says sallahu de never miss Salah with Jamaat
Salah who didn't didn't live next to the masjid much Jewish rock. He lived for the vast majority of time in a tent.
He lives on the battlefield.
But never did Salah who did ever miss Salah with Jamaat
and then Salahuddin.
He called Reginald shalom.
And he says to Reginald sure I'm offering you Islam. Reginald was a tyrant he refused. Salahuddin killed him with his own hands. And then there were two other types of people,
the hospitals and the templates. These were people Knights who had taken a vow to kill Muslims. Salahuddin didn't spay them, he had all of them killed, but nobody else did. The Salahuddin lay hands upon nobody else.
If they see it, and other historians mentioned
that if you looked at the number of Crusaders dead, you could not believe that any Crusader could be living
is that if you looked at the number of Crusaders who were taken as capital, you could not believe that any one of them was actually any of them was actually dead. There were so many captives.
They say that one Muslim would have 30 Crusaders on pulling them with a rope. That's how demoralized they were. They were
wouldn't fight back. One of the fuqaha
he sold one of the Crusaders for a pair of sandals.
So they said to him, why are you selling him so cheap?
He said because I want history to record how many the Crusaders were and how cheap they were.
You know, Mom and daddy say something amazing here.
He says this was the greatest victory for anybody who knows history. He said this was the greatest victory in Sham for the Muslims since the Battle of your
battle Yarmouk was when Holly Molly Dorothea Lange, who defeated the Byzantines and he kicked them out of Sham said this was the greatest victory 600 years plus
since the Battle of Yarmouk, and then what does Salahuddin do?
So sorry, guys, I'm not used to the heat. This heat is the old funny things to me.
It is mine is where we come from is minus three in the mornings.
So what is Salahuddin do next?
Salahuddin two days later in a car
from a car, it takes him three days. Then he comes down. He takes Galilee or SUV, many other Nazareth, Beirut all other places. He's taken all these places sallahu de in three G's, took back all those lands which took the Crusaders 60 years to take.
And Subhanallah literally every single victory of Salahuddin would take place at Juma Juma time. Why? Because Allahu deanwood attack when the imaam The khateeb is saying Oh Allah, a system of God. Oh Allah, a system of God, that's when Salahuddin would attack so his attacks would coincide with the dwarves of the believers. Two months after hitting Salahuddin Rahim Allah now he goes to Jerusalem. Jerusalem
was his life ambition, the liberation of Jerusalem. And molana mentioned earlier on they were Salahuddin would very rarely smile. They said to Salafi, why don't you smile? He said, How can I smile? When machine is in the hands of the Crusaders?
One of the astrologers said Oh, Saladino See, through the spars that if you try to take Jerusalem, you will lose your eyesight.
You will lose an eye Salahuddin said by Allah if I have to walk in blind into Mashallah, I would still take
five to walk in blind I would still take it.
So it's allowed in our walkthrough on Fiverr days around Jerusalem.
Eventually Salahuddin find the ideal place. And when I say as a side note tip,
you know, the largest contingency who would go to machete Aqsa after the Turks with a South Africans. If you go Ramadan, it's the South Africans, the South Africans have been going for a very long time. You must go to murshida.
One line is amazing. The beauty the old sick is still there. Baba Dima square Hollywood Amaro no hapa went through is still there. The history is amazing. If you're going for Amara, you must go to mercy doctor where you're around for mercy, aka
the Arab world doesn't go there because of diplomatic reasons.
But you have the opportunity to go there.
The amount of history, the amount how the Old City is preserved, while my history becomes alive there.
And it's your responsibility to go there. You know, people often say, Oh, no, I don't want to go there. They keep you there for six hours, eight hours. sapan Allah. You can't take six hours, eight hours and you're talking about liberating machines.
The Palestinians have been minced for over 60 years. humiliation, human, but the Yom
And I still haven't cut and run. I met a guy who has a little shop little shop
makes a few dollars a day just outside musharaka design is offered him over $20 million
he refused to sell it said this doesn't belong to me this belongs to the oma
and the oma is to sleeping.
The Omar can get off his backside Omar can't stay in the airport for six hours. Nah man. We are going to chill.
Our mcdouall Friday Yeah, Allah liberate machine axon.
And then we talk about salado D.
Then we talk about Tom.
As far as I know,
Omar only traveled one place while he was a leaf out of his jars. And that was to pick up the keys of machines.
Only what time the second time went to Sham there was a plague and he came back.
traveled all the way from Medina to murshida Samir mumineen Oh, he had nothing else to do you too busy.
So if you can afford it, and when you go
for O'Meara or even if you don't go home raw make sure you go there
and let me qualify something the South Africans were always at the forefront in the Ramadan the vast majority of Ramadan are no longer
the guys in last two years the UK guys are twice as much as you guys
and I'm not saying this competition because I want you to go not because the UK that guys are going but I want you to make this your mcsa that you go because the Palestinians get so happy.
Can't you see the entire world entire Europe now in Taiwan majority of Europe is behind the Israelis
and nobody is there for the Palestinians.
And you get a minced it will mean to you we would throw the towel in long time ago.
So given up if they don't care, we don't care.
But that's what makes these people unique. And therefore it is you know these people are fulfilling the for the fire on behalf of this oma and we need to assist them and the movement must start here. Here. Your movement must start here. You must speak you must speak to your own ummah. Well you can do you must speak to your politicians.
There must be some harika
in making a change so so now how do you for five days.
He goes around and then he sets camp. And then he's speaks to the leader. And he says to the leader
Valley and he says to belly with Baker treaty, belly refuses. So then slowly begin to pound the city.
The city is being pounded.
The churches are full. The women are cutting their hair because they don't want to be raped by the soldiers. On the 11th hour balin comes out and he says to Salahuddin he says oh Salahuddin we won't allow these days too late. No way. I gave you an offer you refuse now we will take the city by hook or crook. You like it or dislike it. We're taking it
so badly and says if you take the city and I will kill every single Muslim. So now you could easily said do it. And then I'll deal with you and everybody else is allowed in was to caring for the Muslims.
Salatin gave him terms and Salahuddin walked into mochila AXA on the 27th of Roger, the same day that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went for the Mirage
COVID What amazing coincidence.
The same day he walks in. Can you imagine when a Muslim must have walked in?
All the memories of 80 plus years ago when the Crusaders must have come back to them. When they saw the woods Have mercy to the outside world they must have remembered
how they catapulted live Muslims over the walls.
When they entered the city when they saw the walls of the inner city. They must remember how the Crusaders would take the children. The babies from the hands of the mothers and they would crack their heads open on the walls.
All these memories must have come back when they saw the Crusader women, they must remember how they raped and violated the honor of the Muslim women.
When they went into mercy that
they must remember the history of how 70,000 Muslims were killed in mushy laksa
until the western historians say that the blood of those who were dying would come up to the ankles
of those who were killing them.
All these memories must have come to Salahuddin and the Muslims, but there was another memory in the back of Salahuddin mind. And that was the memory of Fatah maka, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came into moccasin Han Allah after years of persecution.
He must have seen the place where belonged
was dragged through the seats of maca
until the skin would peel off his back
when Mr. Wei Yasser was smeared the entire family would be persecuted at the mercy of Allah couldn't do anything and he would walk past and he would rub his hand on the head of a mother and he would say Southern yada yada for him.
He said, Oh, I have some sort of family of Yasser because you're a Buddhist by a light your boat by lies, Jenna.
This is the place where Samia was martyred. All those memories must have come bang, and the Sahaba called shot.
There is a motion to get better of him. And he says aluma Yeoman mahama is it today is the day of retribution. Today, the day of payback. Today is the day of bloodshed and the mercy of Allah called him and he said, Oh, sorry, come here, say as Yeoman Yeoman mahama.
Today's the day of mercy.
Today's the day of forgiveness. And then the Messenger of Allah stood by the GABA, and he said, What do you expect from me? What do you people expect from me?
And the more silky knows standing there and they trembling, he could have easily said, I am going to take retribution. You destroyed my family. My one daughter was a senior, the other you caused the death. The third in Medina, what did he say?
They said, Oh, he said, they said, Oh, Mohamed, you are Kareem.
Your father was Kareem. Your grandfather was Kareem.
And the Messenger of Allah said his hope is Habu and tomato lotta lotta free, valuable young. He said, Go, you're free. There is no reckoning upon you today.
The the value of Makkah when they saw the mercy of the mercy of Allah, it begin to ring with La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah
sallallahu Deen remember this? And he forgave every single one. Stanley lane. Poole says, The Muslim King showed the Christian the meaning of mercy.
He says that when the people saw the mercy of Allah hottie because this was unprecedented. Too many of them embrace Islam.
He put 10 tender humps, for the men five grand for the female to do and for the children. You buy yourself and you can take all your possessions.
Many of them couldn't pay Salahuddin freedom. Somehow These are a group of people, old people. Salahuddin provided mounts and horses for them. He had them escorted to the ports. This is what he did.
So Pamela, they said to Salahuddin, they said out loud in this war isn't gonna finish. You know, the longest war in the history of humanity is the War of the Crusaders.
It lasted for 200 gs, 6 million Christians died. These are Europeans who traveled 6 million. They said to Salahuddin, the slogan we want to finish this. Next to Mashallah
is where the Christians believe that East LA flotte slum is buried, destroy the church destroy the grave. It's not our key there. Anyway, we believe that Esau was resurrected to the heavens, so let's just destroy it.
Once we destroyed we finished this problem. So now Dean said no. They said why you Salahuddin
is a while Salahuddin he said because a man who was better than me, took murshida oxen and he didn't do it.
This is who they said Omar
is that Omar didn't break the church. I can't break the church. You know what, like another historian say something amazing. They say. They said Omar and Salahuddin had many similarities.
Omar Salahuddin and many similarities. They said, Omar, we're very close, close, Salahuddin, very close close. They said Omar, eight Varys megafood, Salahuddin eight marry megafood. They said Omar walked into exile without any bloodshed. They said Salahuddin walked into my shop. So without any pressure, you know, line by line, you know, in a sea and say something amazing in their field. He says something amazing. He says this statement is just mind blowing. He says if sallahu teen had no other virtue, besides the fact that history will remember his name with Omar among hubbub that after Omar he was the next conference that is in the facility
that is in the facility, it needs no other virtue that was twice was allowed. Salahuddin
Salah howdy takes Jerusalem
the news reaches,
reaches Europe. Europe goes up into place. But what is salahaddin? I want to make an what is Salahuddin do? Salahuddin even at this moment, doesn't forget his teacher so powerful. new the new dean had a pulpit meet
with a belief that one day that they will take Mashallah axon, and that pulpit will be placed in motion. The work on that pulpit lasted years.
You know, this was this was a this was a miracle of noodle Dean.
When, when sallahu de now tastes much he has the pulpit bought and placed inside the machine.
Who Salahuddin was the leader. That victory doesn't come just by leaders.
It comes by the effort of those on the ground.
The likes of you and I any change within your community come through the likes of UN I
you want to you want to see a change, be that change. Don't expect other people to be that change, be that change. Let me tell you a story of a few people who are involved in this.
There was a man called Isa Allah one
is the other one was a fisher. His wife Salma would say to him, why don't you go and join the army.
join the army go and fight. He said all my life. I wanted to know how to ride a horse use a sword. But you know, I'm efficient. All I know is my boat and my net. So she said to him, if you wanted to learn how to fight, you can go and join the army. He doesn't bother. One day he comes home. He hasn't. There's a note
from his wife that I have left to join the army of salotti
he becomes imbalanced.
He becomes embarrassed.
So he leaves and he joins the Navy.
He's an expert swimmer. So whenever anybody would fall over, he would go and save them. When anything fell a bowl abroad, he would go and take it out to the degree that his bravery was such that some who's in charge of the Navy wrote a letter to slough or Dean to mention his bravery. He was given the title of forest on the night of the sea.
So when sallahu Dean took alkaloids, he met every single soldier. He gave him this honor of meeting him.
So when is accom they say, oh Salahuddin. This is Isa, the one that we wrote to you about. So he stands up to meet Isa. And from a distance he sees this woman running
and his woman comes to run through Isa and she embraces him.
So sir, howdy said, Who's this? They said this is his wife. They have a mate for a very long time. Her name is Salma Alba Korea.
When I'm any man who would be wounded, she would carry the wounded to the camps. She would take them and come back in a very short distance. Salahuddin said Subhana Allah, what a blessing.
Allah had made your union
Allah has made your union Mubarak. So Europe is
about the fact that Jerusalem is now taken by the Muslims, Pope Urban died out of shock and grief.
makes it a form of an obligation on every able bodied individual that he must go and he must fight.
and Europe now humbles me as he says, I met a man in prison Christian, who was his mother's only son.
She sold her house and everything that she had to sell them on the crusades, that some of zeal that they had.
So now they come to a place called acre.
And sallahu de then they seem to acre. so loud in our travels to acre, slow the records between one day between Esther and Margaret, there was 70 different ships docking 70
that, we kill one, and they send another 1000. He says the more Crusaders than they are waved in the seat. That was the number
and somehow the needs to marvel. They weren't led by the general they were led by the kings and the princes. And Slahi now wrote to the Muslim leaders, some things never change.
He wrote to the Muslim leaders who learn was being invaded.
They didn't reply.
Him, He says, Salah who these heart would weep out of the apathy of the Muslim leaders. But let me tell you something.
This is why I won't lie. He This is why history remembers allottee
and his you remember none of the other leaders
in his existence. When Salahuddin was around there was three colleagues
Egypt both God and Spain. He She doesn't remember them. But history remember.
Why? Because when they lived in their palaces law, he lived in his tent when they had their heart immune slowly that Amiga meal, when they were being fanned by the hardened Salas. He was striking with his sword. So now he would fight at the front. One day they said to allow the nice elbow, Salahuddin Why are you risking your life? You're the leader. He turned to the scholar and he said, I asked you a question. What is the greatest death he's in martyrdom. So that's what happened.
He said that's what I wish for. martyrdom is what I wish for.
They came to aka
the Crusaders laid siege to aka Salahuddin, and then they barricaded themselves. Salahuddin came behind them and he lay siege to them.
So he lay siege them.
He couldn't get to them.
If they said art says that slow Dean remained an acre for two years.
Two years. If they said art says at some nights I would see Salahuddin said all night he was so ill
that he couldn't sleep.
But he says after surgery he would sit on the horse and it was as though he had no sickness in this after two years, aka fools.
Richard the Lionheart
who is the king of England?
The funny thing is Richard Lionheart with the King of England he was French he couldn't speak English.
No exaggeration, the guy couldn't speak English.
He killed every man, woman and children.
So it's allowed he now retreats to Jerusalem.
And the Crusaders are now coming to Jerusalem and they lay siege to Jerusalem and they are far more than Muslims in number.
And English says I beg Salah Howdy, go to sleep, go to sleep is loud. Dean was so anxious he couldn't go to sleep. He said I came back in the morning he was still awaiting Whoo. I said to Salahuddin, as a Salahuddin, what you do is give sadaqa and after the Juma prayer, pray to the gods and make dua to Allah. He says after Juma Salah Salah has been prayed, pray the Juma Salah he may sit until he became drenched with tears. He said there was a puddle in front of Salahuddin that's how much he cried. He said from the miracle of Salahuddin was the next day that Richard the Lionheart sent a letter to the Muslims. And he said I want to treat you in a truce.
All the Muslims rush this law means that we must go for the truth and truth. So all this being said no.
is a Let's not make a treatise fight with these people.
Because you will see
that after I die, you will become fragmented. The Europeans will become stronger. The best thing that we can do is fight them and drive them out. But everybody else was on the opinion that we must have a truce with them.
They had the truce, and Richard the Lionheart said something in praise of Salahuddin is that we will never take Jerusalem as long as Salahuddin has it in his hands. balyan said regarding Salahuddin, he said 600,000 Crusaders key so some of them drowned. Some of them died from natural causes, but the vast majority were killed by Salahuddin and his men is a one intende went back that's it one in 10
they make a truce and make a treaty. They go back
and then after this Allahu Diem goes back to Damascus.
When he went to Damascus, look, this is Han Allah. The lead is coming. The Liberator machine aka the male build a huge house for Salahuddin huge house. Salah howdy refuses to stay in it. He refuses, said this is not what last month Allah created us for the historian say since Allah has been made the intention of removing the Crusaders. They say that you can take an oath of mission and says you can take an oath that every single penny that he had he spent for that course. Every single penny.
So somehow they come back to Damascus, the hajis are coming back. Salahuddin goes out to meet the hajis it's cold personalities excited.
The years in the battlefield had made Salahuddin body weak. He goes out.
He comes back he falls ill
now every day his state is getting worse.
the physician says he says the weaker his body would become the stronger his trust in Allah would become
abusive. Jaffa says 12 years 12 days law he lived he said as I was sitting in are reciting the Quran with him.
And every time I went over a verse of tawheed, he would say sir ducked, said he became unconscious. And I reached a verse of tawheed. And he said so duct.
He said, until eventually, his body became weaker. We can even look even in this state sallahu Dean would have any mom come in his room, and he would pray a lot in Jamaat
amazing. Even in that state, he would have been mom come and he would pray salah and Jamaat.
Chef Jonathan says on the 12th day,
I reached a verse of tawheed. I heard I saw his face smile. His lips move, and the rahimullah passed away.
ignatia Dodd said many times I'd heard this statement that I wished I could die on its place. He said I thought it was just a figure of speech. Until Salahuddin passed away said by Allah should I wish I had died on the place of slot
abdullatif says that he was more like a prophet.
If they should not say that since the time of the whole of Iraq. She didn't. Nobody was moonlike salahaddin The Good, the Bad. The Muslims, the non Muslim all cried for Salah Hakeem
and Cher, kasi and father gave a fatwa
that Salah Deen should be buried with his sword so that on the day of judgment when he stands up,
he leans upon his sword and everybody knows that this man is the Liberator machine x.
On his grave is no longer there. But on his grave they had inscribed because Salahuddin had defeated many crusades and taken their forts. On his grave they had inscribed
Oh Allah as the final victory of Salahuddin open for him the doors of Jenga.
You opened many doors many gates as his final which he opened for him the doors of Jenga.
You know Salah howdy
You know what he left behind?
46 Durham's one dinar.
That's the old the leader of Egypt and Sham had 46 Durham's on one dinner.
They have to borrow money for his janazah and his burial.
left no money, left no inheritance, but what the man did leave was a legacy.
And that is greater than anything else. He left a legacy behind him. How can you know things are happening in the world and there's a wish we had a man like Salahuddin.
We wish we had like man like Bob disease.
When are we going to live off our legacy? You can't change your own areas. You can't change the state of your home. And you talk about slow Diem coming
as a poet says
is that the people every time there's an issue that come to cloudiness grave, there's a coma, Salahuddin coma. coma Salahuddin calm happy Shaka Mercado menholt una Camerata, Phil ami Toki boo cammarata LG, Doris Juanita Julie Doodle, Ebola Yamuna motema una komiya Salahuddin come they come to the green with Salahuddin is it standard for Salah How do you please stand up there to see what's happening in Burma that you see what's happening in the Congo, that you see what's happening in iraq afghanistan, that you see what's happening in where you are lying in Syria.
komiya Salahuddin calm has Tasha como
una until his grave began to complain about the stench. The Moroccan army Toki Luna who how many times you're gonna wake Salahuddin up in the year? Camerata Allah g de Juanita jelly Do you know how many times you're gonna whip so loudly because of your own cowardice?
A young woman and watching her own as the nanny sarcastically the poet says at the end,
my honor, as the state reached that the living asking the dead for help.
You are seeing the dead for help. Can you help yourself?
And this is why, for some odd he left a legacy behind. No Well, viola, viola, nobody will remember you for the cars that you drive, or the clothes that you wear, or the homes that you live in. But people will remember you for the day that you left behind. People will remember you for your HELOC. For your mannerisms, for your caring nature. What a difference you made. That's what people will remember you for. And finally, I want to finish off on a legacy not allow the bar office teacher
new routine. And this is what you call a legacy salotti would say.
justice for my teacher nurudeen Salahuddin was very just.
And this story I told her friends, my friend, when we went into by the grave of nurudeen
What happened is that Salahuddin twice a week he would take cases have bought,
so you would judge people's cases. So one day he gave a judgment regarding a person, and a person wasn't happy with the judgment. So he went to the grave or nurudeen.
And he stood by the grave on the and he cried, is it on a routine only if you were alive, I would have attained just today.
Only if you were alive. So Salahuddin heard about this. So Salahuddin call this man and he reassessed this case. And he came to the conclusion
that he had made a mistake, and now he had given, so he gave now he gave judgment in his favor. So the man begins to cry again.
So sallahu these and why are you crying for?
I gave judgment in your favor. The man said, that's not the reason why I'm crying.
I'm crying in the remembrance of a man, that even from his grave, His justice has an impact.
Even from his grave, the man's justice has an impact. This is what you call a legacy brothers and sisters.
This is what you call a legacy.
So have a concern or automatic global concern. But don't forget your neighbor.
Don't forget your brothers because
Stronger that you are here, the stronger You will be over there. May Allah subhanaw taala know what you say amin when a loud voice mail is handled Allah elevate this state of Salahuddin on our behalf. May Allah smart Allah make his grave a garden from the gardens of Jenna. May Allah Spano tala make millions of Salahuddin from our children. May Allah Subhana Allah keep us united in the dunya and reunited in general for those. And finally, I want to thank that Alison noble Jamaat and all the other organizations for organizing this. It's been beautiful Mashallah a lovely audience. You know, last time I came, I gave a talk Juma and I said, of all the three cities the most attentive audience
I had, were the capetonians Mayor last month, Allah make you prosper. Now, last month, Allah keep your hearts together. lotman la Hayden Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. We would like to say
