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

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim hamdulillah Ramadan

00:00:16--> 00:00:24

salatu salam ala ZD mursaleen Maulana Muhammad Mohammed why early he was heavy woman to be a humble son. You know your mid teen

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

brothers, elders Allah microm sisters listening at home salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:00:35--> 00:00:45

The brothers have asked me to speak on the life of one of the favorite children of Salahuddin of democritus, Salahuddin Rama de la la.

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

Muslims are meant to be people of affliction.

00:00:53--> 00:01:00

And really, as an ohmmeter, today, we need to reflect Why are we in the state that we're in?

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

Is it

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

a lack of numbers?

00:01:06--> 00:01:15

And the answer to that is no. One in every five people walking on the face of this earth is a Muslim.

00:01:17--> 00:01:21

Is it because of wealth and resources? And again, the answer is no.

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

Many of the greatest natural resources are in the hands of the Muslims.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

So what's the risk?

00:01:32--> 00:01:39

A billion in number so much Well, why are we in the decadence that we find ourselves in today?

00:01:40--> 00:01:53

The reason for this is that there is a lack of men and women of substance. Men and women like his mind was saying, who are mobilized

00:01:54--> 00:02:18

when a leader of the land who became the enemy, and this was at a time of great turmoil of Manuel de allana, just been martyred. He ascended the pulpit, and his first inaugural speech is first hotma was what all he said, was when he ascended the pulpit, he said, Oh, people, you are in need of

00:02:20--> 00:02:33

a wall of people, you are in need of a man of actions, and not a man who just speaks and then he descended from the pulpit. And really, this was a miracle of the properties

00:02:34--> 00:03:22

that he created men and women of substance, because he never worked on structures. He wasn't concerned on big stroke construction on structures. He worked on the hearts and minds of individuals, until he created men and women who change the landscape of history. Men and women who were heavy in the scales of Allah subhanho wa Taala men and women like a Bula NamUs udara, the Allahu, upon occasion of the lemma, sudo, the Allah and who was climbing a tree, and he had very thin shins. And when the Sahaba they saw his thin shins, they began to laugh, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Sahaba, and he said, What's making you laugh? And they said,

00:03:22--> 00:03:45

O Messenger of Allah, they're finishing the roof. And the province of Allah Allah was some of them said, I swear by Allah. If the finishings of Abu Mahdi Massoud were placed in one side of the scale, and the mountain of oho was placed in the other side of the scale, the thin sheets of aluminum as food would be heavier than the mountain of Ohio.

00:03:47--> 00:04:35

Why? Because the every muscle, every drop of blood which ran through the thin sheet was for the state of Allah, they want a large mass, but they will have quality and this is a son of Allah. Allah never judges a group of people by their numbers. He judges them by their quality, their substance, the greatest men of this summer. It was the 313 who participated in the Battle of butter, upon occasion, jabra llh law to slam descended to the promise of Allah Allah wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah, Who are the best from your oma and he said Allah de Russia, he do better on those who participated in the Battle of butter and ribride relacionados Lampson similarly, out of

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

those angels in the heavens, all those angels in the heavens, the most honorable and the best are those angels who descended on the day of brother and assisted the Muslims. These were 313 men, but they were men of substance, they trusted Allah. They stood against an army of 1000 who was armed

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

To the tee. They hardly had any horses hardly had any weapons, but they trusted in Allah subhanho wa Taala until they reached a state which was unparalleled in the history of Islam. In the time of the verb is a Muslim there was a Sahabi cold, hard to beat up Botha and Hardy was a battery Sahabi

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

decided to attack mcra

00:05:27--> 00:05:35

he informed the Sahaba and what hartig did at heart It was a man who had migrated, but he wasn't a Qureshi.

00:05:37--> 00:05:42

He wrote a letter to the people of Makkah informing him of the plans of the province of Milan,

00:05:43--> 00:05:57

and the professor la Selim sent le MacDonald Zubair rhodiola and him and he said, Go to the garden of ha, and then you will find the lady on a camel and with her, she will have a letter and bring that letter back.

00:05:58--> 00:06:33

And they went to the garden of Hawk and exactly where the professor Muslim said they found the lady on a camel. And they said, Give us the letter. And she said, I have no letter. I have no letter. But these people just did in the words of the province of Lhasa love, they knew that was a Muslim said something it was the truth. They said, Give us the letter. Otherwise, we'll strip you. From the plats of her hair, she bought a letter forth, which was from hardship, informing the people of Makkah, about the plant of the province of masala and the purpose of our solemn summit.

00:06:35--> 00:07:09

And he said, What's this hardship? And how did the message of Allah hasten to polish judgment over me? Because I am not a man who likes disbelief or am displeased with Islam. But the reason I did this is that every other migrant Mahajan has family in Makkah who can help their direct family? I have no family. And the only reason I did this was so the people of Makkah wouldn't harm my family and the province and the law, there was a long term to hurt him. And he said, Indeed, US spoken the truth.

00:07:10--> 00:07:22

And Omar of the Atlanta was standing there, Omar was Omar and Omar said, O Messenger of Allah, let me strike at the neck of this malefic and the verb is a Muslim said Omar didn't

00:07:23--> 00:07:34

participate in the Battle of butter. And Amara, the man who said yes he did is that maybe Allah looks favorably upon the people of butter and he says a maluma [???] to lots

00:07:36--> 00:07:42

of people of butter Do as you wish, because gender has become wajib upon you.

00:07:43--> 00:07:57

Why because see these people trusted in Allah numbers never scare them. And today I want to speak about a person you know by Allah numbers never scared him, Europe through everything that they had.

00:07:58--> 00:08:40

But they couldn't scare him, like the people have better fulfill the rights of jihad. Salah has been fulfilled the rights of jihad, like the people have fulfilled their rights on this Omar Salah has been fulfilled the rights of this ummah, like the people of burger, we're ready to sacrifice everything for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Salahuddin was ready to sacrifice everything for the sake of Allah, like a love a victory to the people of brother. Similarly, Allah gave victory to sala de Ramadan, la la, it was almost as though Allah capsula holding back from the people of brother, so he could deal with his enemies at a different place in a different time. And the

00:08:40--> 00:09:32

testimony to the greatness of this man is that every single person claimed him. Even his arch enemies claimed him. When the news of his bravery and compassion reached Europe, they couldn't believe that a non white non Christian man could be so brave and so compassionate. So Miss began to circulate in Europe, that actually slo Dean was the son of a white Christian princess who was taken into captivity, and then she was married off to a man called mannequin. And from the marriage came forth a man called sallahu de and on the other hand, many Arabs refuse to believe that a non Arab could be of such great stature. And they, and they traced his lineage back to the tribe of a demand,

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

as though only Arabs have ever been achieved, able to achieve great things. Islamic history is a testimony to the fact that whenever Muslims were in danger, many of those people who came to the forefront were not Arabs. Beta muck. This is in the heart of the Middle East, surrounded by Arabs, but who were the men who raised to liberate it in the Middle Ages. It was men like most

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Due to the new routine, they were all

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

they were all

00:10:07--> 00:10:16

use of tashfeen was a Berber bizzabo didn't work with a Persian and follow the llama drama and a madman. He he was occurred.

00:10:17--> 00:10:32

He was occurred because they felt that it was their duty that they had to liberate the land because they felt that they were at oma and Salone de was born in the fourth of decree.

00:10:33--> 00:10:58

And his mother mentioned that when I was pregnant with lousy Bamako, Mali, I sold a dream that in my stomach I ever sold from the souls of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the amazing thing is that the de sallahu de la Mata la was born was the day that his father was expelled from the fourth of decree, his father ran the fourth decree, and his uncle Sudoku killed one of the gods because he disappointed a lady.

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

And because the governor disliked his father, he had them expelled and the narrations mentioned this was the day that's allowed the Rama tamale was born.

00:11:10--> 00:11:24

And they mentioned that on the journey, his father taught us that our Deen was a source of misfortune and every time he would cry, he will break out in the fit of rage. He wanted to kill him until one of the servants said he said, Oh my master,

00:11:25--> 00:12:14

do you think misfortune came because of this child? Look at him. He cannot assist, nor can he hub. This is the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Oh, amazing are these words because for solo de la de la la to attain what he was destined to attain. He had to leave Tikrit and go to Moses, because see, great men create other great men. The greatest of this Omar or the Sahaba of the Illa at home and the Sahaba have sat at the feet of the greatest of creation. Some will lie they will settle because he did their beer and the place that they were destined to was Mosul. Mosul was run by Mr. Dean Zink, Mr. Dean sinky and najma. Dean, the father slow Dean had assisted Mr. Dean when he was being

00:12:14--> 00:12:28

chased by an army took him into the force. And then he kept in there, and then he provided a safe passage for him. And therefore imagine he never forgot this. And when solo Dean's father rich there, Mr. Bean took them in with open arms.

00:12:29--> 00:13:14

And he hosted him. And he also realized the great men that he had received, because she Roku and najma deed were military men. They were warriors. And this was the environment in which la de la la la was brought up in it was a military environment. There was never a day when the expulsion of the Crusaders was not mentioned. But it was not only a military environment, it will not dry military environment. It was a very religious spiritual environment, because it might be Listen to this. And mother Dean and new Rudy was the founders of the madrasa system. They found the mother system, it was the madrasa system which created men like sala de if there was no my mother didn't know neural

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

de there would have been no slow deep

00:13:18--> 00:13:46

and shallow deep from a very early age. He became a half with of the Quran. He was a sharpie in fake and he memorized guitar bottom B of the Sharpie School of fit. You are asked me how many Hanafi Alomar sitting in the gathering? How many of you Allah in Birmingham, how many of them no one mutton, have a hand feed text. surrouding memorized it all. And his greatest aspiration in life

00:13:47--> 00:14:38

was to become a scholar. He loves the scholars throughout his life. The men that he respected the most was a llama. And when Mr. Dean passed, which Allah has he was still young. Then he had the honor of being tutored by a man regarding who de la la la says, says I've studied the life of the whole of pa and I've studied the lives of all the kings. And since the qualifier Rashid and Omar Omar Abdel Aziz, the Muslims never had a man who was as upright and caring and compassionate as new Rodin's inky Rahmatullah la meaning for 450 years the Muslims never had a man like new routines, Inky, Rama Rama LA and Salahuddin would say that nudity is my master. He modeled himself on new D.

00:14:38--> 00:14:45

And as I said, there was no neuro de there will be no sulla who did as a poet says, is that come teracle

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

is that how often somebody else sows the seeds and he does all the root work and those will come later they reap the fruits of it, and also noodle deep. realize the potential is allowed.

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

And this is why, when, in Damascus crime became ripe he made new slow Drina to very tender age, in charge of the entire police of Damascus. And as a poet says, He says, and then, as Loudon worked on the people and he bought peace back to Damascus, and a poet says he says the speaking to the Feasts of Sham he says right away the cambiar la Susu Sham for in Nila Kumasi Humphrey McCauley, El Camino Mina be used by Rebecca with Jamali lavaca. To Idina sir.

00:15:35--> 00:16:23

He says, Oh, these of charm, hold on Take it easy. My words of deep admonishment for you beware of the one who has the same name as the proper use of Gosselaar. The name was also used to the use of the prophet who had insight and who was beautiful. But the difference between the two is that the Prophet used to cut the hands of the ladies. And what this means is when the rumors spread that zuleika, the Honorable woman fell in love with the slave the other honorable women began to say what kind of woman is she, she fell in love with a slave. So what the Lakers did is she gathered all these women, and she gave him a fruit and the knife and she cut the fruit. And then she said, told

00:16:23--> 00:16:45

us about a salon to walk past. And usually a slot salon was walking past and they were cutting the fruit. And when they saw the beauty of use of a salon to salon, they became so immersed in the beauty of use of a lot of salon that they cut through the fruit, and they began to cut their fingers. And they did not even realize, and this is what the polar bear market.

00:16:48--> 00:16:57

ideal job for that use of the Prophet, he cuts the hands of the women. As for this use of he cuts the hands of the robbers.

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

And after a while when Saudi grew up somewhat slow the men, the crusade has attacked Egypt. And what a deed the Caliph in Egypt did is that he cut the hair off his wife, and he sent it to new Rudy. And this meant that we can no longer look after women assist us. And they didn't want to assist them. Because see,

00:17:25--> 00:17:25

the

00:17:27--> 00:17:53

Ella deed and the Egyptians were father Mike, the father of mites was she us? And they were not only sure they were very decadent nation. When the Crusaders took maroto no man, they killed 100,000 Muslims. The turf wars actually cannibalize young children. The vast majority of people who were killed out of the 100,000 were deprived of water. They died thirsty.

00:17:54--> 00:18:04

And what did the fall termites do? They actually sent a delegation to the Crusaders to actually congratulate him because the people that they had killed was so nice.

00:18:05--> 00:18:52

They congratulated them. So Nora Dean didn't want to go didn't want to send an army. But she Raku the uncle of Salahuddin convinced him and so now the Rahmatullah Allah says, say well, my uncle came to me to take me to Egypt. I didn't want to go one because his aspiration was to become a scholar. The second he mentions you know, I thought I was gonna die as a last Asian wasa and to crochet when we were here. You know, it is a possibility that you will dislike something but it is good enough for you and by Allah Salallahu been going there was good for the oma. There was good for history. He changed the landscape of history and sherco rid Egypt of the Crusaders, and shortly after this adid

00:18:52--> 00:19:47

remained the Calif but Sudoku became second in charge. After a while she passed away and the aroma and the fuqaha they choose la de la, la La as as in the place of Shinjuku and Evo Salahuddin Rahmatullah la became the second most powerful man in Egypt. He was only 32 at the time, and slow then showed what a real leader should be. He removed all the taxes, which were contrary to the Sharia. He established Sunni madrasahs every they will only see themselves he established Sunni mother cells. By the time a deed was passing away solo Dean made an announcement that after tomorrow from now, Egypt will be sunny. The historians mentioned no to Rams locked horns, meaning nobody

00:19:47--> 00:20:00

disagreed, because the the people love Slava D. He won the heart he was a true leader. He showed love and compassion to people and that love and compassion will reciprocated. There was

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

No leader who was loved as much as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but then there was no leader who showed his subjects as much love as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did, the historian Lama mentioned the Hadees, where they mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the description of the profits and losses on the second edge within us, he was the most generous of people. And more I mentioned is that I swear by Allah, if sallahu Dean had been given the entire dunya to spend in the path of Allah, it would have not been enough for him.

00:20:37--> 00:20:54

His treasures would never tell him how much they had in the Treasury because he would spend it all in times of affluence and difficulty he was spelled the same, it is recorded recorded by Java the Allahu wa sallam never said no to somebody who asked him for something.

00:20:55--> 00:21:02

And the historians mentioned last allow the LA to La La never in his life, the turn away of beggar.

00:21:03--> 00:21:49

They mentioned that never in his life listen to this never in his life, did he ride a horse, but he had already promised to give it to somebody else. an ignition if they said that was the closest man to Salahuddin amatola. He was the biographer salotti the de sala de Rahmatullah they passed away was the day that he finished the biography of Salahuddin. He mentioned that one day I was traveling with Salahuddin, as well the intern to me, and he said, Oh my god, there are people in the dunya, to whom dust and wealth is the same. And if I knew that he was speaking about himself, because he didn't care about the dunya, the palace that adid left behind him, what there was nothing like it in the

00:21:49--> 00:22:49

world. It had 4000 rooms 12,000 occupants, and besides his direct family, all the occupants were women. And somehow he refused to move in it. He divided amongst his men, he refused to move in it. And therefore smelting wasn't just a warrior. It is the birth of Sol de la Mata La La that today, Egypt is Sunni. Egypt has been here for over 280 years. And as the oldest Muslim University had been Shia for over 200 years, and it was sala de la la, who bought it back into Sunni Islam. He bought it back into Sunni Islam. surrouding was in Egypt, and Nora de la la la was in Syria. Now afternoon routine passed away. Syria is fragmented. All the princes were only interested in their little

00:22:49--> 00:22:54

fiefdom. And they began to spy to the Crusaders to fight other princes.

00:22:56--> 00:23:43

And many of them were giving annual tributes. They were actually giving annual tributes to the Crusaders. And the people of Syria would discuss this, because they were used to a man, like Nora Dean, a powerful charismatic man. The historians mentioned when Nora Dean would become ill, the entirety of Syria would become ill, as a poet says he said mothers are happy to hear from a rescue man who's near LA, for sure feel happy. The attorney first up to me Missouri LA, he says my hubby became ill. And I went to visit him and seeing him in an ill state, I became ill as well. And then Allah gave My Habib chifa, he became better. And when my hubby became better when I saw he came to

00:23:43--> 00:24:25

visit me, and when I saw him that he was in a better state, I became better as well. They stories mentioned that when new routine would become ill, the entirety of Syria would become ill. And when new dean would beg become better, the entirety of Syria would become better. And the people of Syria, they turned to Salahuddin Rama de la la. And this was the time that Salah has been started on his expeditions. So now the Rama Talalay spent longer understand this, they spent longer fighting Muslims than he did not Muslim. He fought with Muslims for over 10 years, because he understood that if you are divided, you are weak.

00:24:26--> 00:24:35

You are weak nationally, globally, in a community if you are divided, and you are susceptible to invasion, but if you are united, you are strong.

00:24:37--> 00:24:55

And he understood this and for over 10 years he fought with other Muslims to unite them. And the historians mentioned that he would say if it was not for that, if it was not for the state that I want to drive out the Crusaders. I wouldn't care how many Muslim rulers they were

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

mentioned that since allow these

00:25:00--> 00:25:51

had made this intention to remove the Crusaders from the Holy Land. He said, If a person took an oath, took an oath that he spent every single penny in the in the way of jihad, he would not be wrong. He said the only thing Salahuddin spoke about with Jay Han, if anybody wanted to get close to Salahuddin, they would speak about Jihad men wrote entire books on the topic of jihad for Salahuddin Rama de la la, entire books, and the other Muslim rulers said, disallow D there's no solo D, we will give you money go back and solo these and how can I unite with you people? How can I negotiate with you people? When you are in one Valley, and I am in another Valley, the valley that he attributed to

00:25:51--> 00:26:04

them was the value of this dunya the value of preserving their kingdoms? Why is the value that he attribute it to himself was the value which led to the era the value of preserving this oma and this is why

00:26:06--> 00:26:14

he said he defined once defining Salahuddin he says Ghana men and Muslim and Mohammad de la Yara

00:26:16--> 00:26:52

is an SLO Dean was a Muslim. He was a Mohammadi. He was a Mormon, the only language that he understood was the language of the Koran. The only language that he understood was the language of Islam and Eman. And today you have many Kurds, who dislike slow D. they dislike slow D, because they believe that he did nothing for the nation. But by and large solo Dean was here today. He couldn't understand the language because he didn't understand the language of nationalism.

00:26:53--> 00:27:40

He did understand the language of komiya. And this is my tribe and this is my country. He understood one language and that was the language of Eman and Islam. And the amazing thing was that the Muslim leaders united with the Crusaders to fight Salahuddin Rahmatullah Allah, many of them sided with the Crusaders, and they released a man who was the greatest arch enemy of Islam, a man called original digital on for 15 years this man had been in prison. nurudeen had left him in the dungeons of Hello, they released him so he would be a thorn in the side of Salahuddin, what this man do. Soon as he mustered up an army, he marched on Makkah, and alphabeta he was saying, When I reach Makkah, I will

00:27:40--> 00:27:45

bring the Kaaba to the ground. And then now Obama, he said, I will go to Medina.

00:27:46--> 00:28:14

And I will, I will take the camel herder from his grave, speaking about the province of Lhasa, and I will bring him back to my palace in karoke. And I will charge the Muslims to view his body and the narrations mentioned when Salahuddin heard this, he took out his sword, he lifted it to the skies, and he said, By Allah, I will kill reginal with my own hands, because he had a deep love for the purpose of

00:28:15--> 00:28:21

the story in the mention that sallahu de never listened to this landing up.

00:28:22--> 00:28:39

When I had these moments of Lassila would be recited. He would sit down, and he would make everybody else Sit down. This is the love that he had for the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and he dispatched an army under who Samba de nuit. Lo, and Osama de la went to his mother to visit her before he left.

00:28:40--> 00:28:46

And he told her, he said, Oh, my mother reginal has done this. And he's saying this. And all of a sudden she shouted.

00:28:47--> 00:29:29

And he said, What's wrong, my mother? And he said, you know, let me tell you something. You know, when you were a child, you reach the age of three, and you couldn't speak. And this was a deep concern to me. And in ruku, in such that I won't make dua for you. And one night I went to sleep with this on my mind. And in a dream, I saw that there was this man who had nude on his face, and he was carrying you and he was kissing you on the forehead. And he was saying to me is that your son will be a liberator and the protector of the haramain Sharifi and he said, this is why since you joined the Army or salon de la la, I always asked you were you fighting? And you will tell me

00:29:29--> 00:29:59

sometimes in Jordan, sometimes in Egypt, sometimes in Syria, now that has come to pass, now has come to pass, and Osama bin took a Navy, he annihilated the army of original and then he captured his men. He took them to Medina, and he executed them in Medina, and four years after this, again, when the Muslims and the Christian had a truce, Reginald attacked a Muslim caravan traveling from Egypt to Syria.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

And what he would do every time he would put a Muslim to the sword, he would say you believe in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now ask him to help you. And then he would strike his neck. And when Salahuddin heard this, he again took an oath, that he will kill this man with his own hands. And he was upon this occasion that's allowed in bought for the army. And this is the famous battle, the battle theme, and the crusade is brought forth an army. And when philau de consulted his men, he said, What shall we do? Shall we carry on attacking their forts and their castles? Or shall we ever head on confrontation? And they said, carry on attacking the fort? And slowly said, No.

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

He said, we will take him head on.

00:30:45--> 00:30:48

Because none of us knows how long he's gonna live.

00:30:50--> 00:30:53

And Matt is run by what Allah decree is not what we desire.

00:30:54--> 00:31:02

And each one of us should expand himself. And then he said, Oh, my men, fight to please your Lord, do not fight to please me,

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

and then marched on to the army of the Crusaders, the Crusader army was considerably larger than the Muslim army. When they reach there. The Crusader army was deeply entrenched, and they had barricaded themselves to allow the ultimate Allah Allah didn't rush. He showed what a military genius he was, what he did, he went to a nearby fort. And he and this fort had the women and the children of the soldiers there, and he lay siege to it. And then he put his back against the sea. Now, the Christian charges were very strong, the Muslims have problem dealing with Christian charges. But tactically the Muslims are far superior. So what the Christians thought was the one charge and Slovene will end

00:31:47--> 00:31:54

up in the sea. And this is exactly what we wanted them to think. So next morning, they marched

00:31:55--> 00:32:12

midsummer, it was mid summer with them they had the True Cross. The True Cross was the most sacred relic in Christian the, it was believed that apart of this cross upon it is la Salatu. Salam was crucified.

00:32:14--> 00:33:05

So they believe this. And obviously, crucifixion is central to Christianity. He died for their sins on this cross. And they believed that as long as they have this, they could never lose a battle. They actually believe that they had won the previous 20 battles because of the burqa of this cross. So they march it was midsummer, and what's now the Rahmatullah they had put strategically had put arches on the way, midsummer, and what he did, he poisoned all the wells. When they began to March, these arches began to shower arrows, so many arrows, so many arrows that their movements became snail's pace. The march should have taken the eight hours, but by sunset, they were miles away from

00:33:05--> 00:33:29

their destination, and 1000s of them had perished. And they thought might would ring them relief, but historians mentioned as low as men had encircled them in a manner that not even and could go through. And they mentioned that there were two different cries from two different camps, because all mighty arrows carried on coming from the Muslim camp. They were the cries of Turkey.

00:33:31--> 00:34:12

And from the Christian camp, they were the cries of the dying and the wounded and overnights allows you to model a boat 400 camels laden with arrows, another simply waiting, water was plentiful. The Christian had no water, and next morning, Salah has the Rahmatullah notice that the brushwood was dry, and the wind was blowing in the direction of the Crusaders. So it's midsummer, no water, and they lit the brushwood. And then now they began to choke on the smoke as well. And it was here that the Muslims attacked, and they were reciting the words, we're gonna

00:34:13--> 00:34:38

walk on gonna have a national Mini. And indeed, it is right upon us that we assist the believers. They were reciting these verses, and then somehow they wanted to afflict the final psychological blue. And that was to capture the True Cross, it was believed as long as they have this cross, they can never lose a battle. So now the Rahmatullah they sent the entire regiment to capture it.

00:34:39--> 00:34:47

And when the regiment captured it, this totally demoralized the Christian and they fell by the wayside and only 150 of them remain standing

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

around the King 150 nights, and the Muslims are attacked. And so now the family was watching this and his brother was standing next to him, and he said Alhamdulillah we have defeated them as well. Dean said, Not yet.

00:35:01--> 00:35:15

And then he attacked again. And the Christian went back. And those brothers said not. He said, Alhamdulillah we have defeated them as allowed and said, Wait, not yet. When that tent falls the tent of the king, then we have defeated him. And when

00:35:16--> 00:35:41

he was saying this, the tent fell. What is Salahuddin do? What did he do? Did he jump up and down? He descended from his mount. And he went into such that because he understood that victory and defeat is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the greatest preparation for victory on the battlefield is off the battlefield. When

00:35:43--> 00:36:36

it comes to fight the superpower of the day, the Persian what advice did he give him? Was it military advice. He said, Oh sub I advise you and your men. That to inculcate taqwa because taqwa is your greatest weapon, and fear your sins more than you fear your enemies. Because wars and battles are lost on the basis of people since it's allowed. It wasn't just the warrior ignition dog mentions, and he accompanied slowed him for years. He says sallahu Diem for years. Never miss a law with Jamal. He didn't live next to the German Masjid. He didn't live in a palace. He lived on the 10th in the battlefield. For years, he never miss alaba Jamaat. One day before the battle, one night

00:36:36--> 00:36:40

before the battle, he was inspecting his men, and the whole time

00:36:42--> 00:37:06

they were sleeping. And the definition of the Sahaba was what they were men who pray at night and beyond the post backs during the day. And at the time, these people were sleeping. And Slovene said Wake up, wake up for you people will make us lose the battle, because he wanted his men to be like the Sahaba. And we can't wake up for fudger.

00:37:08--> 00:37:09

And we talk about victory.

00:37:11--> 00:37:17

weaker when we see the suffering of our Muslim brothers and sisters, we can put our hands in our pockets.

00:37:18--> 00:37:57

And we can even give us the card that we talk about victory. When is Hutch time we not ready yet. But we want to be ready to assist us. Since when did you become a lineman love become your servant. It is the servants who have to fulfill the condition and salawa de la Mata La La would do anything to attain the help of Allah if they should not mentioned that on one occasion we were in the battlefield. And I said to I said to Islam, Dina says, Now the it has been mentioned that the Hadith has been recited on every occasion. But it's never been mentioned that the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has been recited in the battlefield.

00:37:59--> 00:38:48

So now the the Columbo had the scene, and they call them RTC admits the battle, they began to recite the words of the brothers. Why did he do this? Because he believed that may be due to the lack of the words of the prophets of Allah Subhan. Allah, Allah and Allah help would descend. This was the kind of man he was, he wasn't just a warrior. He was a man of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then after the after the battle, this was such a complete victory, that Mr. mentions that when you looked at those who were dead, it was impossible to believe that anybody could have lived. And when you looked at those Christian Crusaders who were alive, there were so many of them. One could not

00:38:48--> 00:39:22

believe that any one of them was dead. And this and they were so demoralized, that historians mentioned. Now one Muslim, would have a rope with 30 Crusaders on that one rope, and he would be pulling them. And none of them had the will to fight. And there was a hockey who was amongst this army. And he's sold one of the captives for a pair of sandals. And somebody asked him, What do you do? That's all? He said, because I wanted history to remember

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

how many the Crusaders were and how cheap they were.

00:39:28--> 00:39:28

And

00:39:29--> 00:39:48

they say something profound here. He says this was the greatest victory for the Muslims, since in Sham since Khalid bin believed, defeated the Romans at the Battle of Yarmouk. That is a profound statement and allow the rock bottom line it didn't ease up here

00:39:51--> 00:39:54

is up here. Two days later.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

He was in aka north. Then they took Taran hayford

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

pursued by route novelists, and a number of other places. And then saraha de la to La La the reason he took all the ports, but so the Crusaders could not get any more reinforcements in. And then somehow the Rama de la la marched on his greatest aim in life. And that was the liberation of the holy places. And they mentioned the sallahu de Rahmatullah. They would very rarely laugh, smile. And somebody asked him, you know, you're the king of Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, you very rarely smiled. He had everything.

00:40:38--> 00:40:38

As

00:40:39--> 00:40:48

I said, How can I smile? How can I smile, walk in food and water tastes good to me. When beta mock This is in the hands of the Crusaders.

00:40:49--> 00:40:58

A wonder what somebody would say if he was here today? I wonder what he would say about the Muslims and their apathy towards the Holy Land today.

00:40:59--> 00:41:30

And the astrologist had told Salahuddin they said oh, so now the we have seen in the stars, that if you try to take Jerusalem you will lose an eye and Salahuddin said you talking about me losing an eye, I swear by Allah, I will take the holy lands, even if it means I walk into Jerusalem blind. Even if I walk in blind and for five days alone, he went around Jerusalem until on the 20th of Raja, they found an ideal place to lay siege.

00:41:31--> 00:42:05

And for six days they found it the city and on the 26th balyan came out to ask for term and Salahuddin said no cloud instead I offered you terms initially you didn't take them. Now the city is mine. And then balyan said, If you do not offer us terms, then we will kill the 5000 Muslims in the city and we will destroy the machine. And really this is a testimony to the greatness of Salahuddin Rahmatullah Allah, He could have easily said Do it, do it. And when we take it, you will see what we do to your men, women and children.

00:42:06--> 00:42:22

But this one is a testament to him because he had he knew that these Muslims had been at the frontline for 88 years. They suffering they had suffered for 88 years. And he didn't want them to go through any more suffering.

00:42:23--> 00:42:27

He realized this and similarly today the Muslims

00:42:29--> 00:42:34

who are in Palestine, they are fulfilling the for the key fight on behalf of his own man, no exaggeration.

00:42:36--> 00:42:55

For how many years? How many years have the Muslims been in Palestine for over 60 years, they've been persecuted. They are fulfilling for the fight on behalf of this oma even with anybody else they would have cut and run. But see they still have sayings like they look the Jewish

00:42:56--> 00:43:08

Israeli army in the eyes and they have the same like muslimeen Hakuna Salahuddin so we are the children of the Muslims and every single one of us is Allahu de.

00:43:09--> 00:43:15

They are fulfilling one lie. They are fulfilling the full decade on behalf of this ummah, and it's a disgrace.

00:43:16--> 00:43:22

It's a disgrace that they have to wait for handouts from the EU, from America.

00:43:24--> 00:43:41

I mean, what do you expect from these people? They only banging on about democracy. And when the people of Palestine chose Hamas by a landslide that what does it mean? Yes, democracy but you must democratically choose those who will tell you to choose

00:43:42--> 00:43:47

and then what did they do? They try to starve these people the EU

00:43:48--> 00:43:55

and America it didn't work then the blockade started it didn't work and then they wanted to bomb them into an abyss

00:43:56--> 00:44:11

and you expect anything more from these people? You must understand the mentality that you're dealing with no seriously you know these people who are the who follow the giant Leah map methodology were

00:44:12--> 00:44:54

lumen before Islam the Arab used to have the same as this your brother may be the oppressor although pressed, and what this meant anybody who has allegiance with you is your brother you assisted and upon occasion the province of Salaam said also raha coven mo mas lumen assist your brother may be though prasa and although press and the Sahaba knew that this contravene the essence of Islam, and they said O Messenger of Allah, we can understand assisting the oppressed by how do we assist the oppressor and the problem is Allah Sallam said stop him from his own oppression. And these people believe it. They believe in a giant alien methodology. They will assist Israel, you know, a group of

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

people who have taken other people's land and put them in a concentration camp.

00:45:00--> 00:45:16

What was the sin of the Palestinians? What was their sin? They were in the wrong place at the wrong time, you know, crime perpetrated by the white Europeans upon the Jews for which the olive skin Arabs are to pick up the bill.

00:45:17--> 00:45:22

You know, Justice says, If land was given, then he should have been from Germany.

00:45:24--> 00:45:29

And if the British were so keen on creating a state, then they should have given them Wales.

00:45:31--> 00:45:34

And if the Americans are so interested in supporting them,

00:45:37--> 00:45:51

states, and this is what you call justice. You must understand the mentality that you're dealing with seriously. This is a mentality which wiped out 300 million red Indians.

00:45:52--> 00:46:13

Right Indians in America like it's my was saying, and then they still had the goal to depict the cowboy as the good guy, and the Indians as the savages. These are the people who went to Australia wiped out the aborigines in New Zealand, the Maoris? They were the savages, and these were the good guys. So you must understand the mentality that you're dealing with.

00:46:14--> 00:46:24

They have the Jilin principles, but the shame is upon us, by Allah for those Palestinians who have died, this is their victory.

00:46:25--> 00:46:55

By and large a victory because sometimes in loss for individuals is the victory, but it's a slap in our face comes out of the new passed away from the Battle of Ohio. He passed away his body was mutilated, his partner made Nicholas's album, but it was on the occasion of that he was given the title of Asadullah the line of Allah subhanho wa Taala. I really, this is a shame. You know, recently they had a documentary where they had that blind man.

00:46:56--> 00:47:12

For children, four sons in prison, he's blind. And the Israeli put a black check in front of him. They said, fill in, sign it, you know, whatever you want, and give us your land. What did he say?

00:47:13--> 00:47:30

He said, If you want the land, then you will have to take the signature of every single Muslim on the face of this earth, because this land belongs to every single Muslim. And this is not just the issue of land. This is the issue of Akita.

00:47:31--> 00:48:06

No, this is the issue of akiza Why don't we feel for the Palestinians like we felt for the Indians in Gujarat when the genocide took place? Why don't we feel for the Palestinians like we felt for the Pakistanis when the earthquake took place? Why don't the Bengalis feel for the Palestinians like when the floods take wipe? The reason is, because see, knowingly or unknowingly many of us give preference to our nationality over Islamic identity, knowingly or unknowingly. And that is the reality of it.

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

And these people are fulfilling of for the fire on behalf of this oma and solo Dean gave valiant terms and somehow the Rama de la la entered when he entered. He entered Jerusalem on the very night very date that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam entered Jerusalem last month other records in the Quran Subhana Allah de sohrabi at the Leyland middle Masjid harami Elon Musk, AXA, pure is He who took his sermon

00:48:41--> 00:49:24

from Makkah to Jerusalem. This was on the 27th of Raja salado de la and to Jerusalem on the 27th of Raja. And can you imagine how the Muslim must have felt when they entered? Can you imagine 88 years of persecution? Can you imagine when they saw the fortified walls of Jerusalem, they must remember the stories of how maybe Muslims were catapulted over the walls of Jerusalem at eight years. When they saw the Christian women, they must remember how every single Muslim woman was violated 88 years ago.

00:49:26--> 00:49:59

When they entered and they saw the Christian children, they must remember the stories of how babies were snatched from their mother's breast and then heads were smashed against the walls. When they enter into the masjid. They remember to remember the stories of how 70,000 Muslims were killed in the masjid in one day until the blood was running up to the knees of those who were doing the butchering all these memories must have come back to the Muslims but

00:50:00--> 00:50:35

Allow the Ramadan Allah had a great memory in the back of his mind, which over read all these memories, and that was when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam re entered Makkah. After 13 years of persecution, the Muslims migrated to Medina. And then after 10 days they were walking into Makkah, and today they were the Congress. There was no Amnesty International, there was no red cross on one instruction 1000s of heads could have been removed from their body. And can you imagine how the Muslim must have felt?

00:50:36--> 00:51:20

when they entered back into Makkah, they must have seen the place where beloved was dragged until his skin would peel from his body. They must have seen a place where football would be made to live until the flesh on his back would melt. They must have seen a place where two young girls and lubaina and Elisa will kill for what because they believed in La ilaha illAllah they must have seen the place where Amar Yasser sumiya the entire family would be persecuted. And the purpose of Muslim would often walk past and he would rub his hand over the head of Amar and he was a stripper and yada yada in mo Docomo Jana Hussein over family of yasim have suffered because your abode by law is

00:51:22--> 00:52:03

never seen all these places. And in the heat of the moment, as a hobby shouted out as yo yo mahama. Today is the day of bloodshed. Today is the day of retribution. Today is payback time. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam heard this and he said oh sorry, come here. Change that cried into a yo yo will mahama Today is the day of mercy. Today is the day of forgiveness. And similarly, Stanley lane Poole mentioned in his classic. He mentioned that the Muslim King showed the Christians the meaning of compassion.

00:52:04--> 00:52:18

He showed them that the meaning of compassion is allowed in this early pattern only killed one man and 210 killers, and that man was after the Battle of defeat. Who was it? Reginald schatten on.

00:52:19--> 00:52:29

After the battle, they erected a tent for surrouding Ancelotti, Rama de la la The king was brought to Salahuddin and Salahuddin gave him some water to drink was laughing.

00:52:30--> 00:52:33

And then he drank the water and he gave it to Reginald

00:52:35--> 00:52:50

and Salahuddin became angry, he said, You gave it to him. I didn't give it to him. Because if you gave somebody water, this was an indication you've given him protection in the Arab world, like you throw a shoe at somebody is an indication You know, you're humiliated amongst us.

00:52:51--> 00:53:14

And then slowly, Mahatma walked up to Reginald. And he reminded them of his transgressions. And he reminded them of what he said about the profits on the original said, This is what kings have always been doing. And somehow they offered him Islam. And he refused. And then Salahuddin said, Do you know who I am, that I had the representative of the prophets of Allah and it was such

00:53:15--> 00:53:26

an eye on this world take revenge on behalf of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he fulfilled his promise. And then he put 200 other Knights to the sword,

00:53:27--> 00:53:47

who were the night template and hospitalist, and these men might have taken an oath that they would wipe out wipe this earth, clean of the infidel Muslims. And Salahuddin said that he would cleanse the earth from them, and he killed 200 200 nights of the soul. And Stanley lane Poole mentioned

00:53:49--> 00:53:52

that when he came into Jerusalem,

00:53:55--> 00:54:13

he showed the Christians the meaning of compassion, the Muslim King, show the Christian the meaning of compassion. And then Salahuddin off Mata la la. He entered the masjid you know, we can you imagine after 88 years that Muslims are now entering the masjid after 88 years.

00:54:14--> 00:54:27

They are coming back into the third holiest place may last. Allah make that day that we also enter it without, without it being besieged by the Zionists.

00:54:28--> 00:54:32

May Allah make us amongst those who do the liberating of the holy lands.

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

And then, like the professor Malala recently gathered the people of Makkah, and he said, What do you expect from me? And they said, You're Kareem, your father was Corinne. His father was Kareem and the progress on the line. It was something horrible and to move to LA Carla to three but I like to say go, you are all free. There is no reckoning upon you.

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

And then ration mentioned that the valleys of Makkah began to ring with the word

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

La Ilaha Illa Ma. And similarly,

00:55:04--> 00:55:12

the Christian chronicle of that time mentioned that when the Christians saw the compassion of Salahuddin, many of them embraced Islam.

00:55:14--> 00:55:23

And so now the look at the justice of salotti, he put 10 dinar on the men, five on the women and two on the women, a 200 children.

00:55:24--> 00:55:25

And those

00:55:26--> 00:55:31

are a group of men carrying their elderly parents. He gave them money.

00:55:32--> 00:56:11

He gave them mounts, and then a group of women came to us alone. And their husband had been captured in earlier battles. And they said, Oh, so now what minds Do we have without our husbands and surrounding freed all of them. And then his brother asked for 1000 captives. And somehow, they gave him 1000 captivity, freedom. And then somehow, they say you will see my generosity. And he said, Whoever cannot pay the ransom, he goes to the back gate of Jerusalem. And a historian mentioned that so many people gathered that it was impossible to count them. So he left them all go free. Every single one of them go free.

00:56:12--> 00:56:54

Every and even on this occasion, Salahuddin didn't forget his teacher new routine, new routine Rama tamale had a pulpit made for the day that based on that machine, is liberated at the pulpit be placed in the machine, as allowed him didn't forget his teacher, he didn't forget those who didn't sign upon him. And this was in Harlem. And he had a boy from Harlem and placed in the machine and see, why would why was the Holy Land liberated? What was the reason? Because men and women gave us sacrifice. Average men and women men like Isa, Allah wa and Salma is Allah wa. He was, he was efficient.

00:56:56--> 00:57:28

And his wife would often told him, he said, Why don't you join the army of salotti liberate the lands and he would say, you know, all my life. I wanted to know how to learn how to ride a horse and use a sword. But you know, I'm a fisherman. I've been caught up between my boat, my net, and the fish. And I've had no time. And the ratio mentioned one day Isa came home, and his wife, something had gone. And she left him a letter that I am going because you are not man enough to join the army. I am going to join the army. And he felt ashamed.

00:57:29--> 00:57:45

And the ratio mentioned he went and they put him into the Navy, because he was a fisherman. And whenever somebody would fall overboard or something would fall overboard, he would jump and he would bring it out of the water, sacrificing himself until he was given the title for

00:57:47--> 00:57:55

the night of the sea. And a Samadhi wrote a letter to Slovene mentioning how brave he Salah warm was.

00:57:56--> 00:58:09

And when, after the liberation of Jerusalem, so now the Rahmatullah met everybody. And when he said a warm came, they told him, this is a warm forest and Salahuddin stood up to meet him.

00:58:11--> 00:58:13

And all of a sudden they saw a woman running

00:58:14--> 00:58:45

from the, from the crowd. And she came and she embraced. Isa allowed him put his eyes down. And somebody came and said, Oh, so did you know who this woman is? This is Selma. She is the most bravest of women, she would carry the engine men from the battlefield and to the camps. Whenever we needed an issue. Whenever a difficult time you needed to send a message. She was the first one to be ready. And slow. He mentioned that he was sitting down, he stood up again.

00:58:47--> 00:59:05

He stood up again. And he said, he said indeed, you two brave couples, indeed, your meeting and your marriage is blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when Europe had heard that their holy lands had been taken from them, really?

00:59:06--> 00:59:47

Europe went to blaze. Europe went to blaze Pope Urban the second died out to brief analysis of harmala Salah How do you know you broke the backs of pirates 1000s of miles away. This is a miracle of Salahuddin. And then the subsequent Pope wrote a letter to all the kings that they should send every evil person to fight. And then regions mentioned that just from Germany, Frederick the king, bought a million fighters Alhamdulillah he drowned on the way and the army disperse.

00:59:48--> 00:59:59

Richard Philip, they bought 600,000 men that's allowed. He was amazed. You know at the zeal of Christians really

01:00:00--> 01:00:40

He wrote letters to all the Muslim leaders, nobody applied, he would mention in the letters that they are more Christian than acre, then they are waves in the sea. And every time we kill one, they send another 1600 1000 Crusaders camp that acre. What they did is that they made trenches around them, and then they barricaded themselves in so that they could attack them from behind. And for two years, Salahuddin has remained in the field, he remained in the field and ignition lane says, Is it you know, so now

01:00:41--> 01:01:03

he would cry at the apathy of the Muslim leaders by a big riot, the apathy of the Muslim leaders today, all those problems which existed in the time of Salah hottie all exists today. The only thing difference is that there is no Salahuddin to bring them together. That is the only difference.

01:01:04--> 01:01:39

And if they should have mentioned that a sellout thief was like a mother who had lost its child. He says, if the agony and pain us allow the to felt, if it was placed upon the mountain, the mountain would crumble. But see, this is why we remember salawa D. This is why we remember him. And this is why all the other leaders are forgotten in the time of solo did how many kings were there? There was three colleagues in the time of Salah Howdy. Does anybody know the name of any one of those caliphs?

01:01:40--> 01:01:58

There was one in Egypt, one in Bogota, the one in Spain. Nobody knows because they didn't care. So history forgotten them. But history remember sallahu de because he came when they lived in their palaces, where this law he lived. He lived in a tent.

01:02:00--> 01:02:04

He lived in the tent when they slept on comfortable beds.

01:02:06--> 01:02:35

They mentioned they said one night I saw Salahuddin he he couldn't sleep the whole night he was in so much pain. The whole night he was tossing and turning but morning came at the crack of dawn Salahuddin mounted his horse and he did not descend until sensient. When others had big meals in their palaces, admission, not mentioned four times two or three days. Salahuddin ate nothing.

01:02:36--> 01:03:04

He ate nothing because he felt this pain. When others lived with their families in their palaces, Salah Hadid was on the battlefield he was dodging arrows when others live with their families. In nature, Dad mentioned that one day the news came that Slovene brother had passed away then his nephew had passed away and he began to cry and we didn't know why he was crying but we began to cry with him. We began to cry with him.

01:03:05--> 01:03:30

But he says then so now he went on the battlefield. And it was as though nothing had happened. He was the same thing. And this is why history remembers Allahu de and it has forgot all the other supine spineless tyrants like history were forget all these today more these two piles spineless tyrants

01:03:32--> 01:03:32

and

01:03:34--> 01:03:36

finally after aka when

01:03:38--> 01:03:39

when the Crusader

01:03:41--> 01:03:59

Okay, I'll cut it short here Charla and I'll go. Finally, the Crusaders after two years then the Muslims in Aker asked for terms. Richard gave them two terms. And then after that he butchered every man, woman and child in

01:04:01--> 01:04:22

every word, man, woman and child in a car. And we are Richard is a very interesting person. They tried to draw comparisons between him and Salahuddin, by Allah there was no comparison. I don't have time to go through it. But there was no comparison. He was a bit of a warrior. But besides that he was a degenerate as a person. I mean, he couldn't even speak English.

01:04:24--> 01:04:26

He was bought up in the south of France.

01:04:27--> 01:04:40

He bought up in the south of France, he didn't like England. He couldn't speak a word of English. He was the king of England and he couldn't speak a word of English English. If he had to go through the naturalization test he would fail it.

01:04:42--> 01:04:59

And he would say about England, he would say you know if I could buy it, if I could find a buyer for London outsell it, because it's always wet and gloomy. You know, fortunate for you guys. He didn't come up to Blackburn otherwise he would have given away three cars all his wet up here.

01:05:01--> 01:05:13

But recently historian tried to, you know, make comparisons between the two. And then they marched by the coast. They came to Jerusalem.

01:05:15--> 01:05:55

They took an oath of allegiance upon death from his men upon the rock. And then Salahuddin LA. You know, they mentioned that all night he wouldn't sleep. Misha dad mentioned that when Jerusalem was besieged, so he wouldn't sleep all night, you would beg him to sleep, he wouldn't sleep, because his love for the Holy Land was passing any imagination, an admission that says I met him at fudger. He hadn't slept all night. And I said, Oh, so now why don't you it is a holy day, it's Friday. Why don't you give some sub because secretly, and then at Juma between the sun and a gamma ray to rockets,

01:05:56--> 01:05:58

and ask Allah for assistance.

01:06:00--> 01:06:18

And he mentioned that they are sitting next to sala de la, and he prayed to regards and then he began to cry, and he was making dua was he was saying, Yeah, Allah, he was Bobby he was sort of the de la, all my own resources I have exhausted in assisting you.

01:06:19--> 01:06:22

And the only thing I have left is that I turned to you.

01:06:23--> 01:06:29

Only thing when it disarmed will be public. And I hold on to your rope. Well, when it came out,

01:06:30--> 01:06:54

and I asked you for your Fatherland, Your Grace. And if they should have mentioned, I saw Salahuddin cry until his beard became drenched, and then the mat in front of him became with he cried, and he cried, and then mentioned that the next morning the news came, that the Crusaders had lifted the siege. And Richard had said his famous statement, as long as a man likes law who

01:06:55--> 01:06:58

is protecting Jerusalem, you will never take it.

01:06:59--> 01:07:42

And then it was Richard who asked for the truth. He never asked for a truce. So that was he didn't want a truce. If they should not mentioned he didn't want to choose, he would say that I fear that when I die, the Muslim armies would disperse and the Europeans will become strong. So the best that we can do is fight them until we cleanse our lands or die fighting. And if they should not mention that in Slovenia, the greater goal, he had this greater goal, if they should not mention that I was at escalon. And this was the first time I'd seen the sea. And the sea was pounding the waves. And I remembered the opinion of some scholars who saved

01:07:43--> 01:07:50

the alcohol, the anybody who goes to see his testimony shouldn't be taken because he can't be mentally sane.

01:07:52--> 01:08:20

And he said, when I saw the nature of the sea, I understood the validity of this opinion. I was I was thinking this aloha Dean came to me. And he said, Oh, evening shut down. When we have cleansed the holy lands of the Crusaders, what I wish is that I go over this land, and I spread the word of Islam until not one Crusader is not one golfer is left on the face of this earth.

01:08:21--> 01:09:09

And if they should have said, he said, Oh, Salahuddin, you are the pillar of this Deen. You are the protector of the deen, what will happen if you die? And Salah has been turned to him. And he said, Oh, if they shut down, what is the greatest of deaths? And he said martyrdom and Salahuddin said that is what I desire. death in the path of a loss pan or Darla. The truce took place. And balyan said in the oral solo Dean is no Salah Who did you achieve something in Islam that nobody before you has achieved? Is it 600,000 Crusaders came and only one in 10 return. Some died out of natural causes some drown. Basically the vast majority of salons Did you killed and it was almost as though

01:09:09--> 01:09:16

and I'll finish it. It was almost as though Allah had kept Salahuddin alive just for that period.

01:09:17--> 01:09:42

of the true so that when he went back to Damascus, and the duration mentioned that one wet day he went to visit the HA Jesus. And when he came back, it was cold is wet. He became ill and every day he stayed got worse. And Alomar had mentioned out with Salahuddin when he was ill. He says this is my alarm. Every time so loud, he became more ill.

01:09:43--> 01:09:45

It was as though his trust in

01:09:47--> 01:09:59

increased. He said the weaker his body got, the stronger his trusted Allah became and even in that state, so now they couldn't go to the machine anymore. But he insisted

01:10:00--> 01:10:09

axilla with Gemma and they would bring it in mom. They would help him up and he will pray Salah in Jamal and Chef Jaffa mentioned I was recite on the ninth day

01:10:10--> 01:10:20

Slovene became unconscious and she mentions that I was reciting the Quran by his bed and when I reach the verses, hula, hula illa 11, who

01:10:23--> 01:11:11

He is Allah, and no Lord besides Him, the Knower of the unseen is a Salahuddin had been unconscious for a while, and I heard a faint voice things he spoken the truth and he mentioned for three days I recited the Quran by the bed of Salah Howdy. And he said on the final day, when he passed away, I reached the verse, La Ilaha Illa who la he took Koto, there is no God but Allah and upon him, I trust. And I saw Salahuddin phase become radiant, and he recited this Shahada. And he left this dunya. And it mentioned, Don mentioned that this was the greatest calamity to befall the Muslims, since the demise of the whole of Iraq, he

01:11:13--> 01:11:32

mentioned mentions that many times I had heard the saying that I wish I could die on this place. And I always thought that this was an exaggeration. But he said I realized the reality of that statement. When Salahuddin passed away, he said, I wish I could have died on the place of sala de

01:11:33--> 01:12:24

abdullatif. The famous physician says that he was more like a prophet, because everybody loved him. The good love them, the bad love them. The Muslims loved them. The non Muslims loved everybody loved Salahuddin. And what did this king leave behind him? king of Egypt, king of Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, what did he leave behind them? He left one dinar and 47. Durham's, some armor and the horse, this is only left behind. They had to borrow money for regionals, but tell you what he left behind him. He left a legacy behind him. He left a legacy behind him. And this is why we are gathered here today. He passed away at the time of fudger. And after they bought his body out. And then aerations

01:12:24--> 01:12:46

mentioned people screamed and cried as though the whole jr had just become one place. And many people when they saw his dead body, they couldn't believe it. They became unconscious. They did attended janazah because they couldn't they couldn't believe that Salatin had passed away, the liberate of the holy lens.

01:12:48--> 01:12:59

And how was allowed in buried day by to borrow money for it janaza and COVID father gave a fatwa that Salah should be buried with his sword,

01:13:00--> 01:13:23

so that on the day of judgment when he's resurrected, and one of the seven people who is under the shade of Allah is a man with a just ruler, when he's under the shade of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He's leaning upon this sword. So everybody sees that this is the Liberator of the Holy Land. And on his tomb, they wrote,

01:13:24--> 01:13:26

this was the man who liberated

01:13:27--> 01:13:44

this was the man who flung open the gates of fortress and castles of the Christians, one after the other, and on his tomb, they route Oh Allah as his final victory open for him, the gates have

01:13:45--> 01:13:47

opened for him the gates of

01:13:48--> 01:13:51

their respective brothers and sisters listening at home.

01:13:55--> 01:14:08

One of the greatest heroes of Islam, and this is why we have gathered here to remember this. But the problem with many Muslims has become today or with all Muslims, is that we live off our legacy.

01:14:09--> 01:14:19

Nobody aspires to be a sallahu Diem, nobody tries to be more obnoxious. Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, karate, or a Khadija or a Fatima.

01:14:21--> 01:14:25

Nobody aspires to be like that. We live our legacy.

01:14:26--> 01:14:59

You know, we remember these people, but none of us aspire to be like them. You know, as a poet says, He said the Muslims come to the grave of Salahuddin and they come again and again. And what do they do? They stand by the grievous cloudiness of komiya Salahuddin comb or Salahuddin stand standard for Salahuddin we need you can't you see what's happening in Iraq? Can you see what's happening Afghanistan? Can't you see the SU fine, spineless leaders that we have a sellout Do we need you to liberate the Holy Land is that the poet's

01:15:00--> 01:15:10

They come and they say Kamiya Salahuddin Hata. Shaka Mercado been holding a funa. It says, this come to his grave and they say, Oh, so now the stand stand

01:15:12--> 01:15:30

until his grave began to complain about the stench around it. And the poet says, Come Martin, Phil army to Kizuna who cammarata llg job Nita chili tuna who a young woman I'm working my owner. He said, How many times in the year are you gonna wake Salahuddin up?

01:15:31--> 01:15:46

He said How many times are you gonna whip slow Diem for your own cowardice and then he says like a young mobile woman and what he said as he come to this state that the living have started asking the dead for help

01:15:48--> 01:15:51

the living have started asking the dead for hope.

01:15:53--> 01:15:58

And this is why why their respective brothers and sisters you know, as I said and as a smile

01:15:59--> 01:16:07

You know, explain the situation. It is an obligation for us to assist these people. And it cannot be short term.

01:16:08--> 01:16:17

It cannot be short lived. You know, as long as BPC has a on the front page we remember it. No, this must be sustained.

01:16:18--> 01:16:41

Muslim Muslims must be people who are you know, who are ready to sacrifice, become be cowardice because we believe in the hereafter. You can't celebrate the life of Salahuddin and overlock a pub and then be cowardice yourself. We have everything by Allah. We have everything. Can you still feel? Can you still see?

01:16:43--> 01:16:59

Can you still breathe? Because they are 1300. Palestinian while fulfilling for the cafe on our behalf? who cannot anymore 400 Palestinian children, many of them incinerated by white phosphorus

01:17:00--> 01:17:12

incinerated and then we are worried. What will our counselors say? We are worried? Is this the kind of life that Muslims have started to live? You know,

01:17:13--> 01:17:21

Abdullah disobey once said, when he was challenging her judge, he said death in honor is better than life in disgrace.

01:17:22--> 01:17:40

And there was a woman in the Spanish Civil War she said, amazing statement she said, It is better to die on your feet than live crawling on your knees. And many of us have decided to live crawling on our feet. And we will give our excuses. It's hikma.

01:17:42--> 01:17:49

It's hikma. Now I know there are certain faces with hikma but this cannot translate into color this

01:17:50--> 01:17:57

you know we will we will entertain those same people. We will curse the Muslim leaders

01:17:58--> 01:18:07

for entertaining Condoleezza Rice and giving her regal jewelry, they have given a jewelry close to half a million the Muslim leaders.

01:18:09--> 01:18:13

But when it comes to the same people, the same m local MP we will suck up to them.

01:18:14--> 01:18:37

I mean, the people of substance, the people of foresight. You know as as Mike said, How can you drink Coca Cola when you know it contributes to the death of your Muslim brothers and sisters? Do you understand the words of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he said and what minooka just said in white, the belief was unlike one body, when the head hurts, the entire body feels a source of discomfort.

01:18:39--> 01:18:48

But you know, we forget as long as it's on the BBC, we remember that when it's gone, we forget it. And this is why we're in the state that we're in.

01:18:49--> 01:19:11

We are in the status of why we're in the state that we're in. And therefore you know, we need a change have a change of view, a change of direction. If you and I say this and move this Arby's to come after me and I apologize. I've taken a long time and insolence for most of this up for me to do this. But you know, I believe if a person does not drink Coca Cola,

01:19:12--> 01:19:56

because he believes that Coca Cola contribute to the trustees upon his Muslim brother, they will be rewarded by Allah. He will be rewarded. I was in lest I gave a talk in the university and the brothers took me out. I have the Lila Marshall old brothers on Sunday, and therefore Coca Cola in front of me. And I said no Dracula, and they said oh, you're on smile. Adam Patel's fatwa. Yeah. And these were Wright brothers who were from our own Muslim. And I say this and this is no offense. Please do not take your offense. It was in a context. I said, Listen, Brother, you know, if it was your cousin's in Gujarat, who had been under occupation for 16 years, I could swear you will not

01:19:56--> 01:19:57

drink this Coca Cola

01:19:59--> 01:20:00

but the thing is, we

01:20:00--> 01:20:03

giving out personal and national legions a greater

01:20:05--> 01:20:07

emphasis than we do on our Islamic identity.

01:20:09--> 01:20:20

And therefore my dear respected brothers, you know, we we need a change of direction I just want to final thing on the issue of boycott because somebody has wronged me from Birmingham today and they

01:20:21--> 01:20:52

they decided to boycott as the first speak to as the and the reason they chose as difficult as there is in small a small heat is like 95 Muslim 95% Muslim and everybody who shops in as the Muslims, so this may be the best thing to do. So if you have any stores in your own areas like as the Tesco etc. Go and speak to them. If you you know the majority of people who are shopping there are Muslim and tell them look, we want all the products
