me what's making you laugh? He said, Oh look, I swear by Allah. I swear by Allah. If you had had to be me and you had offered me one gold coin for Bilaal, I would have sold him for one gold coin and Abubakar of the Atlanta said, Oh my I swear by Allah. If you had to haggle with me and asked me for 100 gold coins for Bilaal, I would have given you 100 gold coins.

00:00:47 --> 00:01:05

Why? Because he did. These weren't shallow people, and then Abubakar buys him, he frees him. This is the greatest man to walk on the face of this earth after the ambia alayhi salatu salam and what would he say? He will say belong to you do not belong is our master. And

00:01:06 --> 00:01:19

the second greatest man after the MBR Lancelot slumped walk on the face of this earth would say, boubakeur say you do not want to say gee, Donna aboubaker was our master and he freed our master Beloved.

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

He freed our master Bilaal.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:42

So Tom says, he says to obey that he loved obey the rule, the line would say, if I will obey there was still alive, I would have made a boveda the next Calif. And Omar says to Abu Zubaydah, he says, a boveda Take me to your house.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:50

And I will be there says he said amirul momineen. What do you want to go to my house the only thing which is going to happen is that you're going to rinse your eyes.

00:01:52 --> 00:01:55

And I will almost say no, take me to your house.

00:01:56 --> 00:02:23

Now the Muslims are the superpower of the day. They are the most powerful people on the face of this earth. Abu Zubaydah is the governor of charm. Sharma is the outpost of the Muslims. This is where all the new cities are coming up. This is where all the riches come into the Muslim world. And he goes to the house of Abu Zubaydah, one of the 10, who was guaranteed gender by the Messenger of Allah, and he sees his houses the mud hut.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

And Omar enters the house.

00:02:28 --> 00:02:33

And he when he enters the house, he looks around, and there's hardly any goods.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

There's hardly anything, any goods there.

00:02:39 --> 00:02:44

And Omar says to him, he says, oh, we'll be there. Bring me some food, I'm hungry.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:48

And I will be that brings him some crumbs and some water.

00:02:50 --> 00:03:02

And Tom says, is that Oh, boveda? Don't you have anything else? Is this all that you have? And I boveda says, Oh meal what we need, it's enough to get me to the other side.

00:03:04 --> 00:03:06

It's enough to get me to the other side.

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

And Omar begins to cry.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:12

And he says oh boveda

00:03:14 --> 00:03:17

the dunia has changed all of us. Besides.

00:03:18 --> 00:03:29

He says Do me a change all of us. Besides you and obey this AES system Omi remote, meaning I told you not to come to my house, the only thing that was going to happen to you is going to reach your eyes.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

But see, history remembers these people Why?

00:03:35 --> 00:03:43

What's the difference? what's the what's the difference between them and us? Why are we at such a loss?

00:03:44 --> 00:04:07

And why did they manage to achieve what they achieve? The truth is their focus was the AHA. And when I say about focus, some people start thinking, oh, here's a movie is pro PG to the Astra he doesn't want us to work. No, I'm not saying that work. Alhamdulillah earn. But don't make your goals in life cars and homes.

00:04:08 --> 00:04:10

That can't be your only goal in life.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:15

Invest in your children, invest in your communities.

00:04:18 --> 00:04:34

You know, invest in the society that you live in. Let me tell you a story. And this is a story about you know, when we speak we speak about things. You know, the first Viva Palestina convoy, I went on the first p Viva Palestina convoy.

00:04:36 --> 00:04:50

So when I came back, I wanted to do something because obviously going there and see is different. So I wanted to do something. And this is amazing story. I've told this story so many times. But because this is the first time I'll come to this machine, I'll tell the story here.

00:04:53 --> 00:05:00

I wanted to open a shop, which was a permanent billboard for Palestine. And we're all the proceeds went to the Palestinian

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


00:05:03 --> 00:05:11

So Alhamdulillah, we managed to find a shop in Coventry road, very busy a big community road.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:16

And we open the shop, but prior to me opening a shop,

00:05:17 --> 00:05:28

I wanted to see if there's anybody else who has a similar project in England or in Britain. So I checked on the net, and I found this place in Edinburgh, a shop where all the proceeds

00:05:29 --> 00:05:35

go to the Palestinian cause. All the proceeds go to the Palestinian cause.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:47

So I thought, Okay, let me go and see this. So I sent him an email as it come up, I caught the plane, I caught the cab, and I gave him the address. So it takes me it takes me to a church.

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

So I said to the guy, you show your address.

00:05:55 --> 00:06:01

He said, this is a dress you gave me. So I get out the cab, and I enter this church, in the church,

00:06:04 --> 00:06:05

in the church.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:16

And in the church, there is a shop run by Christians, with all the proceeds go to the Palestinians.

00:06:20 --> 00:06:23

All the proceeds go to the Palestinians.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:27

We talk but we don't do much.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

And all honestly now

00:06:31 --> 00:06:36

the situation is such that we've been badgered so badly that we don't even talk anymore.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:55

It's true. The reality that they are extremists in every in every group in every group is extremists. Yeah, but we have a concept of jihad. And we have those who are fighting for just course not terrorists.

00:06:56 --> 00:07:07

Now no longer does any machine. Any mom, very few Illa Mashallah. Very few make duar for the Mujahideen.

00:07:08 --> 00:07:18

Once you give up something, you cannot take it back. Don't believe in five years down the line that you are going to now start making dua for the majority.

00:07:19 --> 00:07:33

There are those as I said, who fight for adjust course. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allahumma inni Amina Gibney. Allah I seek refuge in You from being covered this.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:43

the mercy of Allah wasn't a coward, the Sahaba What a coward. Because their focus was the hereafter. That's what they worked for.

00:07:44 --> 00:08:02

Now, what's happened is that we've been badgered so badly, we are so scared that the machines will say, Oh, sorry, that chip is too hot to touch. We know the machine and everybody knows, deep down that I share has said nothing which is extreme.

00:08:04 --> 00:08:43

But they will say no, no, in my MA encroach on our institute. So what happens is so don't go last year, he's too hot. What you mean is too hot. You seen chicken miniskirt? What do you mean he's too hot. But then what happens? What happens? Then the institute's don't defend the shoe. And then the shoe are silent. So you got the institutes who are scared, then the shoe say hey, I have no support from the community. Then the shoe become quiet, because you have a family as well. They have children. They don't want to be banged up.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:54

Then what happens? You get and I won't mention any names. You get Mavericks, becoming community leaders.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:02

hotheads because you have left and created that vacuum.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:50

And then you complain, oh, he doesn't represent us. He's only got 50 people with him. Whose fault is it? It's your fault. Because our only concern that you had was to create this big machine. And I'm not speaking about this. I'm just generally speaking and make a big Institute which does not serve the community. Allah subhanaw taala when he speaks about the first machine in a winner bacon will the elinoz lead landlady bacchetta Mubarak como de la mean, that the first house which was erected for the sake of Allah will the elinoz amazing Allah speaking about the house in Makkah, what is Allah say we know that the non Muslims cannot enter but last month Allah, Allah knows it was

00:09:50 --> 00:09:52

established for humanity.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

When Allah why because that's the relationship he has with this ummah when Allah subhanaw taala speaks about this. Oh my god.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:12

Quantum hieromartyr operator cleaness you are the best of people take it out for the humanity. Now, I know that I know when I say these kinds of things,

00:10:15 --> 00:10:21

it gives people you know, it makes people uncomfortable. That's fine.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:38

But let me tell you, your situation is not going to get any better, better. If you think that you can hide your head in the sand 911 didn't happen yesterday. It happened 12 years ago, I asked you, your situation got any better.

00:10:40 --> 00:10:43

As your situation got any better as it got worse.

00:10:44 --> 00:11:15

So you have to stand up for your rights. And I don't I'm not speaking at all Honestly, I'm not speaking to the youngsters here. Or speaking to the community leaders. You need to show some leadership. As Sherry our says, We need leaders. Now, not leaders that we look down on but we need look up to, that's what we need. We need need. Otherwise, you will see your youngster looking for leadership somewhere else and then it's your fault.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:18

nobody else's fault.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:30

So Allah subhanaw taala when he speaks about the first house, in that debate, will the nurse Linda db bacchetta what is the last panel data he defines it gives it to quality mobarak

00:11:31 --> 00:11:35

and a source of guidance for who will allow me

00:11:37 --> 00:12:10

for the rest of humanity for the worlds and this is the relationship that the house has with Allah because Allah is Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen because Allah is the Lord of the world, I asked you, the vast majority and I don't know the background of this machine and I don't know, see some time that I've come to masajid for instance, I'll give you example I gave, I came to a machine one day and I the Tokuda Miller, and I said you have these huge million pound machines. It's called machine a Bilaal machine.

00:12:11 --> 00:12:46

But if a black man came to the door, and he wanted to be a committee member, if bill came to the machine, and he wanted to be a committee member, you said sorry, you're not on the right village. He should have come from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Syria, wherever you cannot be a committee member, simply either. And then later on found out they had some issues in the first place with some brothers who were, you know, complaining that they don't allow them to be committee members. I don't know the background of this Masjid. But my responsibility is to speak the truth.

00:12:47 --> 00:13:06

That's my responsibility. convey the message the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said none of you, none of you should be little himself. And the Sahaba said, O Messenger of Allah, how do you believe in yourself? And they said that and the mercy of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he sees a wrong

00:13:08 --> 00:13:23

he sees a wrong lady doesn't say anything. And Allah will ask him on the Day of Judgment, why did he say what did he speak up? And he will say, Oh Allah, I feed the people. And Allah will say to him, it was more befitting that you failed me.

00:13:25 --> 00:13:34

It was more befitting before me, this one my request. I am not telling you that your situation is going to change overnight. It's not going to change overnight.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:44

It's gonna take a long time. It took us a long time to reach this decadence is going to take us a long time to climb out of it. But we need organization.

00:13:45 --> 00:14:03

We need people who have a concern. We have people who are active within our communities could I guarantee you, you talk about sending money to sharm if it carries on this way, you will be sending no money to sharp you will be sending no money to Palestine you will be so scared.

00:14:06 --> 00:14:11

There you know what they say. And I was I'm big

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

has been locked up for what?

00:14:16 --> 00:14:18

For sending a generator doing a few press ups in Syria.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:30

One day you tell us you want a freedom fighter site. The next day you tell us no we don't like the freedom fighters. So if somebody happened to engage themselves,

00:14:31 --> 00:14:59

we with the Freedom Fighters when you like the Freedom Fighters now you change your mind now it's problematic. But it's alright for the Jewish you know, Brits to go and fight with the IDF. The Israeli Defense Force, which is upholding illegal occupation, that's fine. That's fine. But see here, I'm not trying to spread a victim mentality. I'm trying to tell you you need to do something about it. You need to think about

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


00:15:02 --> 00:15:12

no hotheads is going to solve the situation. You're going to have to get together as a community. You're going to have to have some focus on vision.

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

You know, what do we do for the community? What do we do?

00:15:20 --> 00:15:31

How many projects do we have out there? We don't have any projects soup kitchens are for the Christians. We don't do soup kitchens. No, no, no, no. soup kitchens are for Christians.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:36

These kind of things are for Christians. Samaritan work is for the Christians.

00:15:37 --> 00:15:44

And how Alhamdulillah before the land I've seen this i'm not saying here to blow my own trumpet. We started a soup kitchen in Birmingham.

00:15:46 --> 00:16:05

That soup kitchen is started in Birmingham. Now we feed people three days a week is moved to Bolton we have branches in Bolton, we have branch commentary branch of Bolton branch in Sheffield, one man's, I just said Alhamdulillah one guy just ran with it. But it's happened. But it didn't happen if we just spoke about it. It happens if you do something.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:18

And, and this is what we are about. Believers are about what believers are about people of actions, people who make a change,

00:16:19 --> 00:16:58

people who make a change. So my dear respective brothers and sisters, you know, we want to be people who work for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala who make a change within our communities. hamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has given us much has given us you know, as given this amazing opportunity when I go to the rest of Europe, and I compare the state of the Muslims here I say 100 Allah, no exaggeration as you go to many Muslim countries. And you look at the state of the youngsters islamically far stronger than many other Muslim countries.

00:17:00 --> 00:17:05

I went to, I went to I had a talk at MIT by iba in Karachi.

00:17:07 --> 00:17:14

After I finished my talk with the IBA iba, out, this young man comes to me and he goes to shift Can you come to my school?

00:17:15 --> 00:17:25

speaks very good English. He goes, can you come into my school? I said, Okay. I said, Where's your school? He said, he gave me a name. I won't mention the name of school is very popular school in Karachi.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:52

I said, Well, here's my guest speak to him, and I'm ready to come. So he goes share, you know why? Because when we finish our a levels, they distribute out in Pakistan. They have a party and they distribute alcohol. Seriously. So yeah. So the next day the professor comes is very excited. Oh, we got we got permission to go to the school because IRA were there a few months before us, and they didn't get permission to go to the school.

00:17:53 --> 00:18:07

So I went there, I walked into lecture theatre. And these are four guys there. And they look at me. And they're like, start smoking. And the thinking, you know what we heard this guy's from England. It looks like if you just came from across the board, Afghanistan.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:21

So then the lecture theater fills up for 300 students. Well, I am telling you, we get taught in universities all the time. I have never seen

00:18:22 --> 00:18:34

such a bad an Islamic State my life. Boys are leaning on the girl. The girls are leaning on the boys, the 300 students, only two girls are wearing Hijab

00:18:37 --> 00:18:41

of all the boys is only one guy with a beard. And he's the guy who invited me.

00:18:42 --> 00:18:44

This is Pakistan. This is Pakistan.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:57

And the professor told me, he said it's a shift. I can guarantee you half of these children have never heard it. Talk on Islam in their life. That's the kind of families that they come from.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:22

And Alhamdulillah for many good things in my heart that day, but no exaggeration. Every joke I cracked, they were with me. They knew our culture. So what every joke is slang, I spoke they were with us. And then I was thinking to them look at the state of these people. And these are like the makers and the shakers of society. These are those who go to Oxford, Cambridge, Howard.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:33

I think it's upon Allah. In many ways. We have it better here. This is no exaggeration, we have better but it must be better get better.

00:19:34 --> 00:19:59

Because if we remain in this lackadaisical state ain't gonna remain like this. For those who follow what's happening on the media, to the Muslim communities, you know, the situation is going to get very difficult. So the Muslim organizations need to organize themselves well, as a community as a machine. You know, if you compare our state will let you know, I was interested

00:20:01 --> 00:20:07

A while back. And when you go to Syria, and you see the state of people,

00:20:08 --> 00:20:36

we the first day we got there, we went to different hospitals. every hospital, there's amputees, arm gone, leg gone, both legs gone. Both arms gone. Maybe some of you saw this video that I did with this young boy called saddam, he was hit by shrapnel in his back, lost his legs could no longer walk. His brother carried him from Syria to the border of Turkey,

00:20:38 --> 00:20:59

to the border of Turkey. And then he was in a hospital. And the nurse was telling me that he cries every day. I don't know where it father is. And his mother's in Syria, and he cries for a six year old boy cries every day for his mom and dad. No electricity in the hospital, no heating in the hospital.

00:21:00 --> 00:21:08

I met a shake from hemps and hence is very interesting place because even Khalid bin Walid could not conquer hemps.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:22

He said my 75 year old father went out one day never saw him again. 75 year old father they said there is no one family and hymns were not lost an individual.

00:21:24 --> 00:21:32

You know, those that we saw in the camp, there was a camp, which had a very approximately 10,000 people in one camp.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:36

It was cold, how cold it was.

00:21:37 --> 00:21:48

I went 11th of December. It was cold in England. It was cold in Syria, the coldest winter in 147 years.

00:21:49 --> 00:22:02

And 20% of those children in that camp had only sandals, some had no shoes on their feet. And you complained about what you can't find you know, shoes or trainers matching you.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:07

You can't find you know shoes matching your handbag.

00:22:09 --> 00:22:19

You have cupboards you have cupboards full of clothes, 5689 different pairs of trainers, tops.

00:22:20 --> 00:22:25

And you have these people 10,000 people and they say these are the lucky ones.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:41

11 million people displaced 2 million out of them out of Syria, many of them know aid has reached once I was over there maybe some of you saw that childhood frozen to death.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:49

BBC did a report two or three weeks ago about children who are still dying out of hunger.

00:22:53 --> 00:23:03

You know, and then we complain if you're not going to help. One thing you have no right to do is to complain. Well, like what are you complaining about? Your council tax?

00:23:04 --> 00:23:09

Your telephone bill? What are you complaining about? You mortgage

00:23:11 --> 00:23:20

These are 10,000 people in one tent. battered faces, slowing children without any shoes on their feet.

00:23:22 --> 00:23:45

Think that you take the liberty of a glass of water, get a good night's sleep, food, have a cup of tea. And then you we and you complain. Why? Because we are used to luxuries. Our comfort is relative to our surroundings. We made us of used to be comfortable. But there is no guarantee of tomorrow.

00:23:46 --> 00:24:13

As the seller would say men are raw the raw taraka raha whoever wants comfort that he must do some for some sorts of comfort. If you want the comfort of the Hereafter, then you must forego some comfort. You know, one of my friends from Birmingham, he's over there. He's we know whatever good few months, I said to him. What's the worst you've seen? And this guy has been to every war zone that you can be matched.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:28

Every disaster place this guy has been. It's a shift one life that I see things every day, every day. Every day I see things. He said But the worst must be

00:24:29 --> 00:24:37

where I saw a four year old child had been snipers. Half of his head had to come off, come and taken off.

00:24:39 --> 00:24:44

And his mother is running through the street with a child in her hand and her arms and she's screaming

00:24:46 --> 00:24:59

and the mother is still hooping that something can be done for the child, which I looked at a child I knew the child was finished. Maybe some of you had seen that picture of that child. That six year old child

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

Who is passing away in his final words where I will tell Allah about everything that I've seen

00:25:07 --> 00:25:16

and then will lie if you can't help, that's a different thing. But what gives us the right to complain? What's your problems

00:25:17 --> 00:25:19

should be in his state of shocker

00:25:21 --> 00:25:26

that Allah subhanaw taala has not put us to the test that he has put these people through

00:25:28 --> 00:25:30

such difficulties

00:25:31 --> 00:25:34

but when Allah tests these people, he also test us

00:25:36 --> 00:25:42

because we say Allah says in the Quran, enamel mommy noona fo the believers are brothers.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:52

Allah subhanaw taala says, I mean una caja said in WA hit. The believers are like one body with their head hurts the entire body feel discomfort.

00:25:53 --> 00:26:03

When the I heard the entire body feels discomfort, when a lot tests them, he also tests us as believers What are you gonna do?

00:26:05 --> 00:26:09

We do anything, when you put your hand in your pocket

00:26:10 --> 00:26:12

when you assist,

00:26:13 --> 00:26:24

or is it you know, you're still dreaming about this thing and nothing and you know you don't have you don't have time to or you don't have

00:26:25 --> 00:26:29

the means in your own mind to put your hands in your pockets.

00:26:32 --> 00:26:39

When you actually assist Allah subhanaw taala wants to test the believers. So when Allah to test them,

00:26:40 --> 00:27:05

Allah inadvertently is testing us for when Allah tests them, and they do so by Allah Spano tala elevates their status. But what will be our state? You had men let me give you a few examples in history of men who actually had a concern and who lived in those places. You had men like promotable Abdelaziz. Amara Abdelaziz was ameerul momineen.

00:27:07 --> 00:27:19

And he lived in Damascus. And when Omar Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah was passing away, they say that Omar Abdullah was passing away and somebody said to his wife, change his clothes.

00:27:21 --> 00:27:22

And she remained quiet.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:33

And then a second time, he said, change his clothes. And she remained quiet a third time. He said, change his clothes. He said angrily say Can't you see passing away?

00:27:35 --> 00:27:38

And Omar Abdulaziz was what

00:27:39 --> 00:27:53

is the caliphate span from China, to Ella from the Caucasus to the depths of Africa. And she turned to me, she said, I swear by Allah, these are the only clues that he has.

00:27:54 --> 00:28:02

But what was the justice of Omar Abdulaziz? Like the justice of Omar Abdel Aziz Rahim Allah was such that they say

00:28:04 --> 00:28:09

that the movie must sit next to the movie machine, there was a church.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:30

And some Muslims, they destroy the church and they extended the movie machine and the machine is that machine, which is believed that is la salatu salam will descend upon its minaret. So the Christians came to Ramadan Abdel Aziz, who's also known as the fifth Salif and they complain.

00:28:32 --> 00:28:58

They said, Oh, ameerul momineen. The Muslims took our church and they destroy the church and I'm extended the machine. So Omar Abdulaziz gave an opinion gave a fatwa that the masjid should be destroyed, the extension should be destroyed and the mesh and the church should be erected again. So the Muslim up in arms, this is what you're doing. You want to destroy a Masjid and build a church where they do civic.

00:29:01 --> 00:29:15

And Omar Abdulaziz did Yes, it was the church, you took it illegally. The church will not Oh must even only be destroyed, the extensive destroyed, but the church will be erected again.

00:29:17 --> 00:29:23

Even the Obama was up in arms. Omar Abdulaziz said that is what will happen

00:29:24 --> 00:29:36

until finally the Christian agreed to sell the land. But this is the kind of lead is that you had once upon a time in Shamp. Let me tell you about another leader. His name was neurotensin key Rahim. Allah

00:29:37 --> 00:30:00

Murthy. The famous historian says since Omar Omar Abdel Aziz the Muslims never had a leader like no Rudy for 450 years, said I study the life of all the high leafs and I've studied the life of all the Muslim kings for 450 years. The Muslims have never had a leader like neuro diversity.

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

noodle junkie was a teacher of Salahuddin. They say there was no new routine there would be no Salahuddin. He was the Salif. He was the king of, of Shang. They say some Han Solo. They say, when new Rudy would become ill, the entirety of Sham would become ill. When new routine would be well, the entirety of Sham would be well, we knew they would go out to fight. Everybody in town would go out to fight today Bashar everybody wants to fight him.

00:30:33 --> 00:31:16

They say no Rudy would remain awake at night, so people good go to sleep. That's the kind of leaders that we had once upon a time. I remember when I went to sharam. We went to Syria, and we were looking for the grave on Udine. We couldn't find the grave nurudeen. So every shot we go, there's a picture of Hafiz Bashar, no picture and nobody knows where the grave of new dean was. I knew he was there. Until eventually we found a proper editor about half a mile from the movie machine. So we went to the grave of new D. and the brothers who were with me there I told him a story at the grave of Notre Dame. I said afternoon Dean passed away. One day Salahuddin he would he would take the

00:31:16 --> 00:31:17

cases of people

00:31:18 --> 00:31:19

and he would judge.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:37

And one day he passed a judgment against a person. So this man came to the grave of new Rudy. And I'm telling these brothers this story by the grace of God. And he's crying by the grave of Lulu Dean and he said, Oh no, Dean, if only you were alive today, I would attain justice If only you were alive.

00:31:39 --> 00:31:47

So Salahuddin heard about this. So he called this man and he reassessed this case. And now he passed judgment in his favor.

00:31:48 --> 00:31:50

And when he passed judgment in his favor,

00:31:52 --> 00:31:54

the man began to cry again.

00:31:56 --> 00:32:21

So Salahuddin so why are you crying for now? I pass judgment in your favor. What's the reason? Why are you crying for? So the man said, said that's not why I'm crying. But I'm crying in the remembrance of a man nurudeen that His justice was such that even from his grave, it has an impact. Even from his grave, it has impact. And then you had Salahuddin Salahuddin ruled

00:32:23 --> 00:32:38

the land of Damascus, the land of Sivir. These are the kinds of people that you have Salahuddin, they will say that Salahuddin would very rarely smile. Somebody asked him why did you smile said how can I smile when mushy daksa is in the hands of the Christians

00:32:39 --> 00:32:44

when the Muslims under occupation is and how can I smile?

00:32:45 --> 00:33:30

Salahuddin when he took mushy daksa some harmala. Look at the justice of Salahuddin the longest battle. The war in history is the Battle of the Crusades. 200 years it lasted for over 6 million Christians died in it. And that's Christians traveling from Europe. 6 million. So they said to Salahuddin they said, Oh Salahuddin, let's solve this issue. Easy. Let's just destroy the cathedral. way the Christians believe that Isa la salatu salam is buried. All we have to do is destroy the cathedral Game Over no more wars.

00:33:31 --> 00:33:39

And they said to Salahuddin, they said, Look, we don't even believe that he's buried there. The Quran says you raised to the heavens, it doesn't make any difference to us.

00:33:41 --> 00:33:50

What did Salahuddin say? Salahuddin said I can't do it. And they said why not? Is it because a man who was greater than me or more.

00:33:52 --> 00:33:55

He took Jerusalem and he didn't do it so I can't do it.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:00

And it may as he says regarding Salah Hadid.

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

He says it is not for the virtue of Salahuddin if Salahuddin had no other virtue. Besides the fact that history will remember his name with Omar Omar kebab, that's enough. If you had no other virtue besides history, remember his name with our modal nakaba? That would be enough. So my dear respective brothers and sisters, the history of Serbia is very, very rich. You know, it's our land. It's our brothers and sisters, and it's our obligation to assist.

00:34:36 --> 00:35:00

The obligation is upon us to assist in matter whatever capacity you make dwarves form Alhamdulillah make doors or make a bundle was for him make doors for every Muslim person, but it is our responsibility to assist in nabasa but the aligner was once in a pickoff and a man came into the machine and he had a concerned look on

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

His face, and even a boss or the lion who said to him What's wrong? He said, I owe somebody some money.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:40

So it Neva says who he mentions his name. So if a boss says, I know that person, I'll speak to him. So he's about to leave the machine and the man reminds him, he says, oh, in a bus, were you going? He says, going to help you. He said, but you're in a car. Why are you leaving the machine for? And if you ever saw the alarm, who said I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, whoever goes in assist his brother and his strive to assist his brother, he will get the reward of 10 years of a tick off.

00:35:41 --> 00:36:19

And the reward a one day it's a calf, that Allah subhanaw taala will make three changes between him and jahannam. And each trench will be equivalent between the heavens and the earth, between the East and the West. This was the D. When the idea of the alarm entered Medina, he entered Medina and he was walking with the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, he was alone. And this African slave woman came to the message of a lunch he stopped the message of Allah and the evening Hatem was what the evening hartham himself was a prince.

00:36:20 --> 00:36:29

And he's there and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped for this woman. And she said, O Messenger of Allah, my master, he overburdens me.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:33

He overburdens me, can you please have a word with him?

00:36:35 --> 00:37:00

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stops and he begins to speak to her. And at the heart him says, I knew that this man cannot be a king or Prince, because you can't stop kings and princes in the street. And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said to her, said, Take my hand, and take you to any street in Medina and asked me for assistance, I will assist you.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:06

And at the heart of it says, I knew that this man was special.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:14

I knew he was something special. What was this cifre this cispa was of assisting others.

00:37:16 --> 00:37:32

And finally, I'll finish up on his story. And voila, it really is just amazing story that I am sure many of you have heard his story, but it's amazing. relates to the situation of of the Syrians. And the diamond armor of nuclear power of the lion who

00:37:34 --> 00:37:38

two men come into the machine and jogging another man.

00:37:42 --> 00:37:47

So Omar asked what's wrong? And they say, well, Miro meaning this man killed our father.

00:37:48 --> 00:37:54

So Omar asked him what happened. So he said, amirul, momineen, Mike camel went into their land.

00:37:56 --> 00:38:07

And their father got angry, and he picked up a rock and he threw it at the camel and hit the camel in the eye. And I got angry. I picked up the rock and I threw at the Father, I hit him in his head and he died.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:20

So our turn to the year two young men is what do you want it? They said, We want retribution. We want the sauce. He killed our father. We want his neck. So Omar said that's what will take place.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:30

So the man says to Omar, he says amirul momineen allow me to go home for a short while I have this young brother

00:38:32 --> 00:38:39

and my father lesson wealth, and only I know where that wealth is. And there is nobody else who can look after my brother Besides,

00:38:40 --> 00:38:45

there is I we have no other family, you can look after my brother. So allow me to go home and give him the wealth.

00:38:46 --> 00:39:01

Omar says I've heard that one before. Try another one. He said, Oh ameerul momineen. That is the truth. Please give me the opportunity. So are more of the allowances I will allow you to go if somebody stands a guarantor for you.

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

So the machine is full. So this mine turns around, and he said who will stamp guarantor for me?

00:39:10 --> 00:39:31

And nobody replies. And I want to say is, if you find no guarantor, you can't go to the man who turns around again and he says, who will stand guarantor for me? Is there nobody who will assist a Muslim in his time of need? from the back of the machete, the man raises his hand

00:39:32 --> 00:39:35

and a mover for the alarm?

00:39:36 --> 00:39:47

And Omar said, Oh, Buddha, do you know what you're doing? If he doesn't come back? It's your neck on the block. And a Buddha says yes. And the man goes, one day he's gone. Two days gone.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:58

Third day, come on, so Salah, he's not bank, and the sons go to the house, or Buddha or the ally No, and it's a Buddhism back.

00:39:59 --> 00:40:00

We told you not

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

To stand guarantor for acknowledge your neck on the block

00:40:04 --> 00:40:09

and above are the aligners as they say the date is not finished until monthly

00:40:10 --> 00:40:28

and then they're going through Medina Can you imagine? It's the talk of the town, the Beloved of the Messenger of Allah. The man regarding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there is no man who walks on the face of this earth who is more truthful than a Buddha, and today a Buddha is going to be killed.

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

And they go to the masjid and our Omar is waiting in the masjid, and McGriff, Salah is about to begin, and all of a sudden a man comes running into the machine. He breaks the rolls, and he goes to the front.

00:40:43 --> 00:40:44

And it's the young man.

00:40:45 --> 00:40:54

And almost shocked. I don't want to say is, why did you come back for it? I said anybody behind you, you will free to go.

00:40:56 --> 00:41:04

And the young man says so amirul momineen I didn't want people to say that a Muslim gave his word and then he broke his word.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:15

And Omar turned to Buddha. And he said, Oh Buddha, tell me, why were you ready to put your neck on the block for a person that you didn't even know?

00:41:16 --> 00:41:24

And a Buddha says O'Meara mommy need I didn't want people to say that a Muslim was in need and there was nobody there to help.

00:41:25 --> 00:41:32

A Muslim was in need, and there was nobody there to help. And then almost 10 to the two young men

00:41:34 --> 00:41:41

and they said oh boy mirror meaning you bear witness as long as there's people like this alive in this oma. We forgive the math

00:41:43 --> 00:41:46

for my respective brothers and sisters.

00:41:47 --> 00:41:53

You know, we have brothers and sisters who are in need to make dua for him. But we also show our generosity.

00:41:55 --> 00:42:02

I know Syria is a bit of a hot topic at the moment in the sense that it's very difficult to travel there now.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:14

But if it was easy to travel there without you getting picked up and getting done for terrorism, it would be worthwhile going to see the situation while llahi

00:42:15 --> 00:42:25

all these when you go to these places. You see the difficulty in which other people live a makes you a richer person.

00:42:28 --> 00:42:39

My share here will be a testimony to that you need to bear my shallow many water zones, makes you a richer person, you come back and you do shocker upon what you have.
