00:04:26--> 00:04:32

who left sedangkan to load that was good you're on your mental

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

images

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

are much higher.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

So what kind of inches every soul will experience and you will be given your weekend penciled for on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever is pulled that from a distance from hell and entered into paradise is the victorious

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

And what is the life of this world except deceptive enjoyment? So watch out of your mind. Just Hulu Nuff said that equal to load every soul with experience that

00:05:15--> 00:05:30

the only thing we can say with absolute certainty about this life is that we're all going to die. We can say with absolute certainty if any one individual will be ritual for

00:05:31--> 00:05:36

they will travel or live a sedentary lifestyle.

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

If they will grow up and become parents, or if they will die and have no offspring.

00:05:45--> 00:06:10

We can they will be a person who owns their own home, or will they rent for the entirety of their life, we can say any of these things or anything else, there's absolute certainty about any baby or infant that comes into this world. But one thing we can say with absolute certainty is that everyone will die coolness in

00:06:12--> 00:06:28

our community, that our community here in our community here in the United States has been shaken. As you all know, by the brutal assassination of three young, beautiful, talented

00:06:29--> 00:06:35

Muslim students. This has affected many, many people

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

wondering if it can happen to them.

00:06:42--> 00:07:11

And they're not radicals, they're not militants, rather, they're all very successful students, law abiding citizens. They're pillars of their community. They're engaged in charity, they're engaged in work that helps in assist Muslims and others. This shining the light of their beautiful personalities on everyone who crosses their path, it can happen to them, it can happen to anyone.

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

And indeed they can.

00:07:15--> 00:07:24

Or they could have been killed in a car accident. Or as there are oncologist, you oncologist.

00:07:26--> 00:08:05

Some intelligence also, philosophers study the nature of being. But there are colleges too, who can tell you young people contract cancer. If there's a children's hospital here in Flint, we can go there and we'll find young children 345678 910 years old, who have contracted cancer, many of them are probably going to pass away, we're all going to die. And we die in different ways. So the death was inevitable, inevitable, but is is tragic, nonetheless.

00:08:06--> 00:08:18

So why do I say this? I say this to remind us brothers and sisters, that we are not people who should be who should fall apart.

00:08:19--> 00:08:34

In the face of death, no matter how tragic we should be people understand, yes, we shed tears, and we feel sadness, especially like myself. You lose them

00:08:35--> 00:08:36

or met him.

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

I can't sell intimately acquainted, but I've met for sure.

00:08:44--> 00:08:48

And probably his wife and her sister,

00:08:49--> 00:09:00

and have know very well, the sister many of you saw on CNN, Suzanne, a wonderful young medical doctor.

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

In any case,

00:09:04--> 00:09:11

we should be the people who understand this is their decree.

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

And they will have a high high standing

00:09:16--> 00:09:30

with a loss of time. So the issue shouldn't be the tragedy of their death. The issue should be what can we learn from their lives? What can we learn from their lives.

00:09:31--> 00:09:39

The first thing we can learn brothers and sisters is that we don't know when our life for them.

00:09:40--> 00:09:43

So we have to take advantage like them.

00:09:44--> 00:09:52

Every moment that we have in this world, we should constantly be seeking ways to do good for our community.

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

Both our Muslim community and the wider community that we belong to, as was their case

00:10:01--> 00:10:08

We should be the best at what we do. They were our Honors students, they all graduated come loaded,

00:10:09--> 00:10:15

we should all be the best at what we do. If we're student we should be the best students

00:10:17--> 00:10:28

in the job that we if we're doing a job, we should do the best at it. If we're involved in charity, in other words, we should be the most enthusiastic

00:10:30--> 00:10:42

charity workers. As we saw the many of you saw the video of recruiting dentists, to go to the refugee camps in Turkey, to serve the children

00:10:44--> 00:10:47

who don't have access to dental care.

00:10:48--> 00:11:01

We should be the best at whatever we do, we should be looking for ways to do good to others. This is what we can learn from their lives. We should be courageous young Muslims,

00:11:02--> 00:11:14

we should understand there are no limitations. Our religion isn't a limitation. It didn't keep them out of dental school. It didn't keep them from going to university.

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

The young sisters

00:11:19--> 00:11:31

your SIR and her sister, Roseanne, they didn't have to take their hijab off, to be respected, and to accomplish what they accomplished in their young lives.

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

This what we can learn from their living?

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

Who do we blame?

00:11:39--> 00:11:48

When we these things happen before we start looking at the material issues, we should look at the spiritual issues.

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

And the first one we played

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

is the son of Adam,

00:11:56--> 00:11:59

the eldest son of Adam.

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

Because the messenger will also love It was said that he reminds us that to love so not so good. And then in a can I love that. Oh, well. kifune and Debbie had the me know who can overlap and

00:12:19--> 00:12:29

then no one. You guys in the back you two striped sweater, striped sweater, who's laughing and joking. This is funny, get up and leave

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

me you don't have to stay here.

00:12:33--> 00:12:36

You can leave if you want to joke Lee.

00:12:37--> 00:12:40

That's what you can learn from these three people will kill it.

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

Tomorrow could be your turn.

00:12:45--> 00:12:55

If you want to go out laughing and joking in the football. That's how you're going to meet a lot. And I hope you're not too young to learn and understand that lesson.

00:12:58--> 00:13:07

So if it's a joke, if you want to text you want to chat with your friend, girl. For me. This is a this is America is a free country.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

You're free to leave.

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

There's no joke.

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

Anyone else you can leave. You can go in the hall. There's a beautiful cafeteria, go get something to eat. There's a wonderful gym, you can go through.

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

You don't have to waste your time here.

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

Because I didn't come here to waste your time.

00:13:41--> 00:14:01

No CIO is killed. No innocent soul is killed, except that the elder son of Adam shares a portion of the same of the sin of that murder. The blood of that murder because he was the one who innovated murder in the human family.

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

Then you can go over them and send them a copy

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

that you started.

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

We can blame shape on.

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

We shouldn't bring this pathetic up there.

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

Because he's the victim.

00:14:25--> 00:14:32

He's the victim of circumstances being created by evil people.

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

And our job is to combat that evil.

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

Our job is to combat that evil. Our job is to push back against the tidal wave of hate that's being created in this country. Our job is to be inspired by these young people who have lost their lives to settle

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

In our power to ensure that no other innocent person has to die because of ignorance because of hatred, because of some political agenda that's been put in place by people who for whatever reason,

00:15:19--> 00:15:49

apprehensive about the Muslim made it the Muslim become too influential, they'll affect the stranglehold that designers have over the American foreign policy, especially towards the middle east. Maybe if it comes to influential the Christian extremists fear that as their people are fed up or frustrated or disenchanted with Christianity.

00:15:51--> 00:16:01

As they are increasingly they'll take out Islam and swell the ranks of the Muslim, whatever their theories, we should be the ones

00:16:03--> 00:16:21

who are telling them you have nothing to fear. We should be the ones that are telling our fellow Muslims to stand up, be proud, hold your head up, define the bullies, both the actual both the actual bullies and the online bullies.

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

By being courageous,

00:16:26--> 00:16:30

by not giving in to the fear mongers and the hate mongers.

00:16:31--> 00:16:45

Bye bye, reminding our Christian neighbors who fear a caricature that's being created. That has nothing to do with people like these three young people

00:16:46--> 00:16:56

who are kind and gentle and charitable, and free spirited. And the last thing on their mind was harming anyone

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

when their neighbor

00:17:02--> 00:17:14

who supposedly had a parking dispute, as his ex wife said with many people, when he decides to kill the Muslims, when he's intimidating them,

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

and coming before them with a gun in their belt.

00:17:21--> 00:17:24

They didn't do what many Americans would have done,

00:17:26--> 00:17:31

exercise their second amendment rights and went out and bought a gun themselves.

00:17:33--> 00:17:39

This is how far they will remove from this stereotype of violence.

00:17:43--> 00:17:46

Because they weren't afraid,

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

they did it fear

00:17:49--> 00:18:16

and that's appropriate for Muslim because Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us in the Quran, in the Medallia shaytaan look holy for our Leah fell out of her home of how funny in me that says say he wants to instill the fear of his country. fear, fear them not rather fear me if indeed you are Muslims.

00:18:17--> 00:18:25

So we shouldn't be people live in fear. We should go about our business, we should continue to do the good things that we do.

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

And we should remind our Christian nations

00:18:32--> 00:18:39

who are living still many of them with fear of this caricature, this non existent caricature

00:18:41--> 00:18:47

that your bible tells you Yea, though I walk through the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for

00:18:49--> 00:19:12

art with me, Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. So why are you afraid? What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of the likes of these people? Are you afraid of these? The people in this messaging, law abiding citizens, decent people have been working people are just trying to get ahead in life? What do you you're afraid?

00:19:13--> 00:19:30

But that's our job. That's our job. And we need to do our job. And it's a good thing that this kid is having an open house, I believe February 21, to invite the neighbors in to come see it shed.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

First head.

00:19:34--> 00:19:38

And don't don't don't believe what you're being told and shown

00:19:39--> 00:19:43

through various aspects of the media now won't give us

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

each and every one here to continue to be strong, to continue to smile, to continue to show acts of kindness, to continue to love to not allow the hatred

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

Some bigoted individuals to take the love out of our hearts.

00:20:05--> 00:20:15

This is our challenge. This is our calling knowledge it gives us time to make it easy approval COVID that was

00:20:17--> 00:20:19

when he sent me an email

00:20:45--> 00:20:50

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala c University

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

while he was talking to US Senate

00:20:57--> 00:21:06

Committee on the legality, which is why we are being sold on it. So Hanna can see that and it can come at a time that

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

was

00:21:11--> 00:21:16

even early. He was selling out in Long

00:21:19--> 00:21:20

Island, maybe

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

he was selling

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

a lot most of us.

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

And he was saying

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

and hopefully we learn.

00:21:38--> 00:21:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us an opportunity to reflect on life when we're confronted with death.

00:21:46--> 00:21:56

And one of the things that our profits on the love island with sentiment told us to help guide our reflection

below this world as a stranger or a wayfare, reminding him you're just passing through. So like these three beautiful young people were just passing through.

00:22:21--> 00:22:28

And because we're passing through, we shouldn't allow our hearts to become too attached to this world.

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

Because we're just passing through, our hearts should be attached to our home.

00:22:37--> 00:22:43

Our heart should be attached to our home and our home is agenda to get down

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

solid, solid

00:23:38--> 00:23:39

Swan Han

00:23:40--> 00:23:45

Soo funa that Allah has some very intelligent sermons

00:23:46--> 00:24:02

on it. They did force their hearts from this world, understanding that it's a place of tribulations. Our hearts are attached to it. The hearts will be torn and tossed and turned.

00:24:04--> 00:24:31

Tanaka gonio coffin Phaeton. They consider it stated when they realize that it's not a permanent abode for any living creature. No goofy half alumna animal and the hand is certainly higher than what they consider it as if it were a great expanse of water. And they take righteous deeds as the as their boats as their ships to cross this

00:24:37--> 00:24:41

giant who had a gentle touch who saw that

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

My last panel kind of lessons we said that the courageous Tyler bless us have magnanimous spirit, filled with love and mercy and compassion for all human beings, the loss of Hannah Montana, bless us to be the people who take his advice.

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

We'll call

00:25:48--> 00:25:51

it five bill that he failed.

00:25:54--> 00:26:04

Me, good and evil, not evil. So the evil act of the murderer of these young people

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

is not equal to the good that they did.

00:26:09--> 00:26:15

It's not equal with the loss of power over time. It's not equal the way it impacts human hearts.

00:26:16--> 00:26:19

It's not equal in the scale of these

00:26:22--> 00:26:25

tests, we will have Senator with a say in fabula. To

00:26:26--> 00:26:33

respond to evil, which is best respond to evil without which is best.

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

Respond to hate with love.

00:26:39--> 00:26:42

Respond to pressure with justice.

00:26:44--> 00:26:54

Respond to negativity with positivity, sermon Kappa, joining relations with one break still with you, while

00:26:56--> 00:27:06

forgiving, pardon one word presses you know, I'll keep an eye on that. And give to those who deny you can now pause for the low.

00:27:08--> 00:27:20

This is our calling. And what is the last shade we don't know that we don't realize your fully esteem the power of a loss of faith

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

can

00:27:24--> 00:27:32

lead you see unexpected effects either either. Unexpectedly surprisingly,

the one between whom you and he there was something that he can

00:27:40--> 00:27:56

become as an intimate friend, as the more because the true friend is one who's there from the beginning, this person was an enemy at first. But in the end, he's like the one who was a friend from the very beginning.

00:27:58--> 00:28:13

That's the power of a lost sight of what time we want to push back this wave of hatred, then trust and align the power law. And then you'd be blessed to take the steps that a lot Tyler's urges us

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

to

00:28:16--> 00:28:20

Don't be moved by hatred to respond with hatred.

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

There may be some young people maybe not here somewhere, definitely. They're thinking I'm gonna get even

00:28:31--> 00:28:37

I'm gonna take things into my own head. They got three of us, three of theirs,

00:28:38--> 00:28:42

an eye for an eye, a tooth for tooth.

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

This is not the time for that thinking.

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

This is the time for its possibilities to

00:28:53--> 00:29:03

respond to evil without which is best faith and that the beta co have been wiped out. No way you would have been an unexpected

00:29:05--> 00:29:10

because beyond our power, but it's not beyond the power of a lawsuit.

00:29:12--> 00:29:18

You will see the one between whom you and he those great immunity, become a trusted friend Well, now you

As our community give us patience, May Allah give us a vision, loss of

strength, loss and what Allah bless us to reach out and go out and do the job of letting people know the truth about our religion when so many people have been swayed by lies and falsehood but it doesn't take much to dispel those fossils to get rid of those fossils. All it takes is the truth. When this dark is dark, there's no moon it's the middle of the night night you come into the masjid is totally dark, it's flat. It only takes to flip the switch and turn the lights on the darkness is gone.

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