Lentil is blessed us to have so much food to eat many of us are looking for diet plans, and gyms that we can join to burn off the excess calories.

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

All praise is due to Allah

00:03:38--> 00:03:41

Who is blessed us to live

00:03:43--> 00:03:47

in a an area that's governed by the rule of law.

00:03:49--> 00:04:04

If someone breaks into your house, you call the police the police come some neighborhoods that might not come right away. Eventually they'll come in almost all instances for transgressed against

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

we can go to the court of law

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

and have our grievances address.

00:04:14--> 00:04:20

And we can know that in virtually all instances the judge hasn't been paid off.

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

And we know there's certain biases no doubt.

00:04:26--> 00:04:30

You know there's the reality of the prison industrial complex no doubt.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

Joe generally

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

there is law and authority.

00:04:37--> 00:04:42

As we know, right now, none of those things are true for our brothers and sisters and Gods

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

there's no security

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

there's no food.

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

There's no water.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

There's no electric we flip the switch electricity comes on. If it doesn't come on, we're upset. Even if it doesn't

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

I'm on for two minutes on the phone with the power company. We're upset, no electricity and gods.

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

There is no court,

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

even international court

00:05:17--> 00:05:20

for the people of Gaza to appeal their case soon

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

to plead their case with

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

the murder, massacre, wholesale

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

of innocent human beings.

00:05:32--> 00:05:41

Not a probably, who knows, not a single one killed by the bombardment, ever set foot

00:05:42--> 00:05:46

until until those areas where Israelis were killed.

00:05:48--> 00:05:48

myself.

00:05:50--> 00:05:55

I'm not happy with any innocent person being killed.

00:05:56--> 00:06:00

Jew, Muslim, Hindu atheists

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

no one.

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

But

00:06:07--> 00:06:08

we should understand

00:06:09--> 00:06:12

the large scale destruction

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

and devastation of Gaza is nothing new.

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

The narrative that is emerging, the unprecedented savagery

00:06:24--> 00:06:33

of the attack from Hamas requires an unprecedented the barbaric response from Israel.

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

There is nothing unprecedented

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

about what's happening in Gaza.

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

The very founding of the State of Israel

00:06:47--> 00:06:58

less minimum conservative estimate to this dance of 10,000 civilians in places idea your see the destruction of 500.

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

Over 500 villages, razed to the ground

00:07:04--> 00:07:16

document is 70 unprovoked massacres of innocent men, women and children. So what's unprecedented about what's happening now?

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

In 1982,

00:07:21--> 00:07:29

the Israeli Defense Forces the idea bombarded Beirut for almost a month, day and night continuously.

00:07:31--> 00:07:35

And the estimates because it's hard to get the accurate count

00:07:36--> 00:07:38

between 20

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

to 49,000, Lebanese and Palestinian civilian massacre. What's unprecedented about what's happening now?

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

is nothing new.

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

So the question My dear brothers and sisters, is what are we going to do?

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

To begin to change

00:08:05--> 00:08:07

these recurring massacres

00:08:10--> 00:08:11

when we find to do

00:08:13--> 00:08:19

what I would suggest, first of all, as a human family

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

we have to change the way we think

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

about human life

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

especially innocent human lives.

00:08:35--> 00:08:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us before end when he said he can't get a better use of our healer

00:08:43--> 00:08:51

and no human other than Nelson the lady lives in office as in Phil Oh, we forget anything other than NASA Jamia

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

Woman Yeah.

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

Yeah, NASA

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

what? As soon

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

as

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

they lead you from like a Euro minimum rather than he can fill out the levels before

00:09:10--> 00:09:16

that for for that murder of Cain killing his brother Abel.

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

from Kabul killing common killing Avenue.

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

We are a day

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

for the children of this little Benny Islam II.

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

Interesting

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

that that designation is in

00:09:38--> 00:09:50

there whoever kills the life other than retribution for murder, or spreading murderous corruption in the earth, such as highway robbery that results in death.

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

It says if they killed all of humanity

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

it's as if they kill

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

for all of humanity, that's how grave it is. That's how sanctified and precious the life is with a loss of power with time. And whoever saves a life.

00:10:13--> 00:10:30

It's an innocent life is as if they saved all of humanity. And We have sent Our Messengers to them with clear rules. And even after that, even after that, many of them go through the

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

earth with excess violence.

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

So my dear brothers and sisters,

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

as Muslims,

00:10:44--> 00:10:51

we should be championing the cause of protecting the sanctity of innocent life.

00:10:53--> 00:10:58

We should be championing the cause and protecting innocent life.

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

We should be

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

trying to undo

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

to the best of our power and our ability starting with not participating

00:11:15--> 00:11:20

in these modern wars, which amounted to mechanize slaughter

00:11:21--> 00:11:29

machines that grow ever more efficient and effective in murdering human beings.

00:11:33--> 00:11:37

This is part of the prophetic heritage after mentioning

00:11:38--> 00:11:44

the sanctity of life. What does Allah say and we have sent Our Messengers through them.

00:11:45--> 00:11:51

Welcome, welcome our messages while they had come to them, whether content has

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

been paid

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

with clear proof or clear teachings.

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

And even after that,

00:12:02--> 00:12:09

you see many of them going through the earth during the kinds of things that we see happening.

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

Well, Allah blesses us to have the courage

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

to stand up to these military machines.

00:12:18--> 00:12:24

May Allah bless us we're having the courage here in this country, so I'm not participating.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

I'm not working in a bomb factory.

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

When all those bombs rather been Philistine, Afghanistan, Somalia,

00:12:36--> 00:12:43

Iran overwhelmingly are going to be set to murder civilians and innocent people

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

to bomb bridges.

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

We see our country to probably some ages in here taking no take good notes.

00:12:58--> 00:13:02

Recorded don't write it down. You might miss something.

00:13:06--> 00:13:11

Bomb the sewage treatment plant in Iraq after the desert storm

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

with the express

00:13:15--> 00:13:25

intention of polluting your waters of the forest with digital the Euphrates and the Nile and the the

00:13:27--> 00:14:00

can you think right there, Euphrates and Tigris. So people would drink sewage in the water. No, you will lead to typhoid and cholera and destiny and dysentery and diarrhea and knowing that a million children would die and admitting to half a million deaths halfway through the regime. Madeleine Albright second secretary of state was 500,500,000 dead children were surprised I think it was

00:14:02--> 00:14:19

to do nothing that was halfway through as the other half until you get to the 2001 board invasion. That's a million children. It's worth the price what to contain some dumb No. Why do we need a war in 2001

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

to bomb and brutalized more civilians.

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

This is madness.

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

This is madness. Muslims your wish your ways of voice against

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

wishing condemning.

00:14:39--> 00:14:52

And we should let the world known. It's disappointing. These are probably one castlederg Iron Fist and whatever. They choose to happen and happen. We get riled up.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

When it's in the news, as soon as it goes out in the news cycle, we go to sleep

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

Don't do anything until the next time we'll get riled up again

00:15:08--> 00:15:19

really cannot get riled up we need to wake up. Now Muslims complaining look at the the the let the bias in the news

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

look at how we see all these horrible scenes

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

of crying Israelis a morning Israelis in Dead Israelis.

00:15:33--> 00:15:40

And nothing of crying Well, the Palestinian mothers and dead Palestinian babies look at the biases.

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

CNN, Fox,

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

all of them pro Israeli,

00:15:51--> 00:15:54

what stops us from building our own CNN?

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

What stops us from telling our own story.

00:16:02--> 00:16:08

This is the story of the tiger in India.

00:16:10--> 00:16:17

So the story goes, everyone says in a while the tiger would come out of the jungle Go into the village

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

and,

00:16:21--> 00:16:21

and would

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

get a village.

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

And then the people in the village would go out and hunt try to hunt the tiger down.

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

And then in the story, they always get the tiger.

00:16:37--> 00:16:43

So one day one of the boys very astute young men. He said Baba,

00:16:45--> 00:16:52

sometimes the tiger gets away. How come in the story, we always get the tiger.

00:16:53--> 00:17:02

When we know the tiger gets away a lot of times, he say you get that version of the story when the tiger starts telling the story.

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

We'll get our version of the story when we start telling our story.

00:17:13--> 00:17:28

CNN isn't going to tell our story. Fox isn't going to tell our story. MSNBC isn't going to tell our story. None of them are going to tell our story because it's not in the vested interests and tell our story. Actually it is.

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

It is in their interest.

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

But they don't think it is.

00:17:35--> 00:17:44

It's in the interest. Because it's only when the American people know the truth about what's happening over there.

00:17:45--> 00:17:50

Can you have a serious initiative to bring about some peace

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

as opposed to just shipping more bombs?

00:17:59--> 00:18:11

The Democratic Party is going to protect us forget that LGBTQ some compromise on that compromise on this. Therefore us.

00:18:14--> 00:18:17

The Democratic Party is just as

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

eager and enthusiastic to send bombs, more bombs, more ammunition to kill more Palestinians, as the Republicans are.

00:18:30--> 00:18:37

It says a Democratic president who's standing up bragging about his Zions

00:18:41--> 00:18:52

who said that of concern about the hidden column fascist about the extreme right wing government and Palestine

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

was even before now said his plan is to ethically cleanse Minister members who are arrested

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

for races

00:19:05--> 00:19:25

militaristic genocidal plans and articles and actions against Palestinians before now. I'm concerned. But when push came to shove, I'm selling that government more weapons, more ammunition, more bombs to kill more Palestinians.

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

Palestinian is not a war against Hamas.

00:19:30--> 00:19:36

So warriors, Palestinians it's not just the war in Gaza.

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

It's the war in the west face.

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

What is the Democratic Party now?

00:19:46--> 00:19:55

All politics are local. I'm not saying abandon them. Look at your local situation. See what any party can do for you. When I'm saying

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

that our protectors ALLAH SubhanA wa

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

Turn to Allah.

00:20:03--> 00:20:22

Many of us are stressed out now. Now there is so much Islamophobia is being revived all of these Islamophobic tropes of being events that just savage murderers, they kill babies. Babies hands off, there are a bunch of animals yes animals.

00:20:24--> 00:20:25

And now the discomfort

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

turn to a mob brothers and sisters.

00:20:32--> 00:20:52

Remember Allah Allah be the lead of men not blue, your hearts agitated, you upset your ancients and let it be victory learning in new pollun is not the remembrance of law bring comfort to the heart, few in the law, Flee to Allah

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

and few in the law.

00:20:57--> 00:21:14

Free to along this until he becomes real tall he doesn't we get out of this stuff and we jump off town he will be who he'll be as long as I told him this was the reality of life in LA Hatillo Allah

00:21:15--> 00:21:22

sinks into the heart when the reality of the Hello without court in the villa sinks into the heart.

00:21:24--> 00:21:27

When the reality reality of

00:21:28--> 00:21:39

Allah who were near and then look in near him and know Lola whenever last year the frog Annika Rapana when they cannot see you sinks into the heart there so he

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

not a checklist.

00:21:44--> 00:21:53

A guy in the alley can check off the list, hey, this is so morale check this this song. This means this this means this check, check check.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

Let's say dealing with too many one legged man

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

has to be

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

true faith is what takes root in the heart and then is testified to by the actions.

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

So we free to Allah. Remember Allah during these dark times,

00:22:16--> 00:22:28

work to change the mentality that allows the slaughter of innocent human beings to happen in the first place. Divorced from any here in this state

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

is a liberal state

00:22:33--> 00:22:39

is ironic that the most liberal states are the ones that are most deeply invested

00:22:40--> 00:22:45

in the war machine. The nuclear submarines are made in Connecticut.

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

The military transport helicopters are made of Sikorsky the challengers are made at Pratt and Whitney. Them 16 is made at KOAT.

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

So it takes it takes the prospect of losing one's job.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

If we say with conviction, I'm not participating in this machine.

00:23:16--> 00:23:18

But that's part of the struggle

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

as part of this program.

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

And telephone Jen method will look like

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

method Rula Lena Hava will we will complete

00:23:34--> 00:23:44

the set by one that set my set that says what Rob was losing health care your older Rasulullah will lead in a

00:23:46--> 00:24:01

matter not so long. In the hospital, not your body. Do you think you'll into Paradise, and that has not yet come to you? The likes of that which affected those who preceded you?

00:24:02--> 00:24:09

our forebears our fathers, many of our fathers and mothers and brothers and sisters in this room right now.

00:24:11--> 00:24:15

They had to struggle so that we can say that

00:24:16--> 00:24:35

many of them were thrown in prison. So we can say manhandle Mohammed also love. Many of them lost their lives, and the generation before them, difficult time dealing with colonization, and invading colonial armies

00:24:36--> 00:24:40

and fascist and nationalist and socialist regimes.

00:24:42--> 00:24:45

Well names like Abdullah and Mohammed

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

when they banned hegemony,

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

be encouraged. Practice is antithetical to religion. They endured that but they sacrifice and they hid. I know

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

A friend of mine in Turkey his father's hunters are en they had to hide

00:25:07--> 00:25:32

because after Turks regime has spies going out looking for people they had to roll he said the wealth of carpet that they had picked the water from the form isn't compartment and then I looked down on the door and was one of the soldiers is coming that put the most harm under the board row the carpet back and just started having a normal conversation.

00:25:33--> 00:25:40

Some of the book I have there hasn't taken lessons and read books writing on the train between hunger and the soundboard
