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

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

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever has done me a favor in this dunya I've repaid them. As for aboubaker, Allah will repay him on the Day of Judgment.

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

00:00:59--> 00:01:22

And today he doesn't cry.

For if you turn on your heels, you will not harm Allah subhanaw taala nyota Omar says when he recited this verse, it was as though this verse was revealed today and I realized that the Messenger of Allah had left this dunya and I fell and my knee my legs could no longer hold me and I fell to the ground. You know, your mom calls to be says listen to this.

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

A mom cooked up says that the greatest

00:02:25--> 00:02:31

side the greatest bravery ever performed in the history of this oma, was this of Abu Bakr Siddiq

00:02:33--> 00:03:04

and the demise of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they call it emotional bravery, emotional courage. When you have a masiva that shows how much steel that you have. The Messenger of Allah says whenever whenever difficulty before you remember my device, and it will give the war of your difficulty. The greatest example of bravery was this, of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. He showed steel. You know what Omar would say? Omar would say,

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

he said I would give

00:03:08--> 00:03:24

the the mother a bother and my my good actions of my entire life for a day and the night in the life of Abu Bakar a day and night in the life of a worker. You know what that day was?

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

That day was when he spent the day in the cave with the prophets Allah lives on. And you know that night was the night that the Messenger of Allah passed away. Omar ameerul momineen the man regarding who the Messenger of Allah said if there was a prophet to come after we it would have been a maraca pub.

00:03:43--> 00:04:05

He saying that if for a day and night in the life of ibaka I would give my entire actions and then we move on Abubakar roseola and who becomes the next Calif so he's the Calif now but what's happened in the Muslim world? What's happened in the Muslim world is that the Muslim world has now rebelled

00:04:06--> 00:04:14

the vast majority of Muslims rebelled in one form or the other some became outright martyred. Some refuse to give this a cart.

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

So now Abubakar roseola. And who is that? I mean?

00:04:19--> 00:04:38

The last command of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that the army of Osama bin Zayed should be dispatched. This army had all the warriors of Islam in this they reached a place outside Medina called drove and they heard that the Messenger of Allah is ill and they kept there they didn't move.

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

Now the Messenger of Allah passes away, and Abu Bakar of the Lama said we're gonna dispatch this army and it's gonna go to the Romans. The Sahaba said, what you doing abubaker oX nzbn two major tribes are now deciding to attack Medina and you are dispatching an army which has all the soldiers of Islam

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

He said this is suicide. So they sent Omar have no capacity to speak to Abu Bakar. And Omar says, He says, Oh Abu Bakar armies are attacking Medina. They're only a little way away and you are dispatching this army.

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

Listen to the replay boubakeur.

00:05:21--> 00:05:51

avacado the alarm who said it was the command and the desire of the profits or losses to dispatch this army. He said by Allah, I will never withhold the command of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I swear by Allah, if I have to defend Medina all by myself, I will defend Medina almost by myself, that I swear by Allah if I knew predatory animals, would drag my body outside Medina dead, I will still dispatch this army.

00:05:53--> 00:05:59

Any dispatch this army with all the eminent Sahaba the commander

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

and the general of this army was a man called Osama bin Zayed. Osama bin Zayed was the Beloved of the Messenger of Allah. And at this time, he was only 18 years old.

00:06:11--> 00:06:19

So they went back to Omar, they said, Okay, if he's adamant he's gonna dispatch this army. They'll do us a favor. Tell him

00:06:20--> 00:06:27

that Osama is too young. There's too much chaos going on, change the general.

00:06:29--> 00:06:36

So Omar goes back to speak to Abu Bakar. And he says to Abu Bakar is a worker the Sahaba saying

00:06:37--> 00:06:52

that Osama is too young there's too much going on may replace it with an older commander. The narrations mentioned, the Abu Bakar was sitting down. He jumped up. He grabbed the beard of Omar.

00:06:53--> 00:06:59

He said Omar, may your mother lose you? Do you want me to demote a man who the Messenger of Allah made the genuine

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

and Omar put his head down? Do you want me to demote a man who the Messenger of Allah made a general

00:07:11--> 00:07:20

Omar gore up after a while in the left? He went out and the Sahaba said What happened? What happened? is in May your mother's all lose you

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

may your mother's own lose you. This is what happened.

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

He dispatched the army.

00:07:29--> 00:08:11

There's um these tribes are attacking Medina just after the demise of the province Allah Allah. You know, let me tell you a statement here. Remember this statement? If you remember nothing else? The Sahaba love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. No people love the message of Allah like the Sahaba did. Three days after the demise of the prophets Allah from the army was dispatched. shalabi says, even the morning of the Sahaba was through actions. they mourn but they did the actions. They didn't sit on their backsides. Then Omar came and he said Oh, he said, Oh Khalifa todos la vaca calm down now. Now you want to fight all the Arab tribe, you dispatch the army. You

00:08:11--> 00:09:01

are, he said Be gentle with them. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when a person says La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah his blood and his life is sacred and his wealth is sacred. Relax, relax. Omar is he telling who aboubaker is that these people are recite in La ilaha illAllah. Abu Bakar said Listen, if a person withholds a string of the card, which he gave it the time of the prophets Allah Salaam, I will fight that person. And then he said to Omar La ilaha illAllah. He said, Omar, he said, Omar a Jabbar and Phil Jai Leah wa Juan Phil Islam. So Omar, we breathe in jelly Have you become a coward in Islam? A jabardasth is

00:09:02--> 00:09:04

a wonderful Islam.

00:09:05--> 00:09:10

Were you brave before Islam? Omar was known and you become a coward.

00:09:11--> 00:09:20

And this is what they call moral courage. You have a standpoint and you stand that standpoint. I want to leave you with these words. brothers sisters.

00:09:22--> 00:09:29

What kind of courage do you have? As a group of people? What kind of courage do you have? Do you have any courage at all?

00:09:30--> 00:09:57

Or are you throwing in the towel? No emotional courage, no physical courage, no moral courage? Since 911, you look at the Muslim state. you apologize for everything. Something happened in France. you apologize. Something happened somewhere else as it helped you at all. Not an iota. Not an iota. It's gone from bad to worse.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

You make excuses

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

You know, let me ask you a question.

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

Who's Islamophobia? Put your hands up Who's islamaphobe?

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

Any Islamophobia?

00:10:11--> 00:10:21

The worst form of Islamophobia is when you internalize it when you become an islamophobe. And you don't even realize

00:10:23--> 00:11:13

when you use rhetoric, which was created by the islamophobes. So you use rhetoric like, oh, extremist, moderate, what does a moderate Muslim mean? Nobody knows is create to you to Quilliam. All of you are extremists. So what retrograde using Islamist you become an islamophobe without knowing you've internalized the belief. They created rhetoric for you, and you adopted it. Something happens at school, somebody comes with Islamic first Islamophobic statement, you say nothing, you sweep it under the carpet. The Bible is a Muslim said allow me to become middle Jube Allah, I seek refuge in You from being a coward, cowardice, I seek refuge from you.

00:11:14--> 00:11:27

And this is the state you complain about your leaders being a bunch of cowards. But you can't even speak out some of the things everybody has to take it up with the government, but in your areas.

00:11:28--> 00:11:33

The next time Listen, the next time you tell your children not to do something.

00:11:35--> 00:12:00

Because they're Muslims, then you have created your children into second class citizens. That's what you done. If you tell your child at school, don't say this, but all the other children can say it, then you have made your children then you have made then you have made your children into second class citizen and by a law remember this. If you don't respect yourself, nobody will respect you.

00:12:02--> 00:12:12

If you're a coward yourself, if you don't have the bravery to stand up and speak, nobody else would ever respect you. And this is what's happened to the Muslim ummah.

00:12:14--> 00:12:17

You're always apologizing. The only reason

00:12:18--> 00:12:34

you start food banks and homeless projects is why you asked everybody Oh, we gained bad press. We want to go give a good impression. You're British as much as a cup of tea, a load of rubbish.

00:12:35--> 00:13:13

A cup of tea. Does anybody else have to say that? So why are you saying it for? See, I was born in this country. And from day Doc, I was told I am an equal citizen. And by Allah I will never live on my knees. You know what, I won't live on my knees. Because if I live on my knees, I'm etching the way for my children to live on their stomachs. Then I will not do that. You look at the life of the Messenger of Allah, Sushil courage aboubaker emotional courage and listen me out. I'm not trying to hype up a group of youngsters here. Because you know young says they cause more problems than good often.

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

But leadership needs this.

00:13:18--> 00:13:22

We need to be brave. We need to be courageous.

00:13:23--> 00:13:28

This is what our Deen teaches us. Though. internalize.

00:13:29--> 00:14:07

Though, internalize your fears. Don't become islamophobe without realizing you become a slammer vote. trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala be positive citizens for this country. The greatest lesson the greatest proliferator of terrorism is what is foreign policy. All academic reports say that every single academic report says that the greatest proliferator of terrorism is foreign policy. Who is foreign policy created by the government? Have you ever heard the government apologize for terrorism?

00:14:09--> 00:14:23

Have you ever heard him say Iraq was a mistake? Afghanistan was a mistake. What we didn't Palestine was never but you know, when you apologize, you've accepted firstly that the problem lies with you.

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

Oh, flashy.

00:14:28--> 00:14:42

flashy, this and flashy that, you know, you say yeah, this association. Don't call that [???]. You love that [???]. You know, everything he says is right, but you disassociate yourself from that chair.

00:14:44--> 00:14:49

Have they ever apologized for what you're apologizing? I want to leave this message with you.

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

The life of Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

is a source of great inspiration. I've already spoke about

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

his courage, but I want to couple courage with good actions. If you start a food bank

00:15:08--> 00:15:17

if you start a homeless project, do it for the sake of Allah. Allah says in the Quran in amando mo de la, la,

00:15:18--> 00:15:30

la la la Shakira. The only reason we feed you is for the sake of Allah. We don't want any desire or sugar from you. We don't want any Recompense. Do food banks,

00:15:31--> 00:15:46

do homeless projects. Be good to your neighbors excellent opportunity we never did in the before we got an opportunity. But don't do it because you're getting bad press. I'll tell you why. Because the day you will be out of the media is the day you will stop.

00:15:47--> 00:15:52

And we don't do it for that sake. We have what Allah defines in the Quran. kontum hayleigh

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

llenas de Marana Bill maruf 14 hola and

00:15:57--> 00:16:37
