me peace, mercy and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala of Almighty God beyond all of you.

00:00:44 --> 00:00:50

The topic of this evening's talk of mine is the importance

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

of the unity in the Muslim ummah.

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

And we find today

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

that hamdulillah

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

more than 25% of the world population, they are Muslims, there are

00:01:07 --> 00:01:10

close to 2 billion Muslims in the world today.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:36

But the unfortunate part is that though we are in such large number, every fourth person in the world is a Muslim. In spite of this large numbers today, the people that are troubled the most the people that are looked down upon the most today are the Muslims.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:46

The situation of the Muslims today is very pathetic. All over the world you see in Muslim countries, that is killing

00:01:48 --> 00:01:52

people are attacking the Muslim country. We find fitna in the Muslim country

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

who is to blame

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

for the situation.

00:01:59 --> 00:02:01

And why are we in this situation?

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

If we go back

00:02:06 --> 00:02:18

to the Islamic history, and we see the times of masala Solomon, the whole for Russia, Dean, and the sahabas. The Muslims at that time were on the top of the world. From the seventh

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

to the 10th century see

00:02:22 --> 00:02:26

the Europeans they called it as the Dark Ages.

00:02:27 --> 00:02:32

But the amount of advancement that the Muslim is made is phenomenal.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:41

If you wanted to do research in science, it was compulsory, you had to learn Arabic as a language.

00:02:43 --> 00:02:48

Though the Europeans called it the Dark Ages, it was dark for them, but Muslim on top of the world.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

If you read the Islamic history in the first 30 years,

00:02:54 --> 00:02:58

at the time of the alpha Russia, the Muslims ruled

00:02:59 --> 00:02:59


00:03:01 --> 00:03:04

large portion of the world a major portion of the world.

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


00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

before the Quran was revealed

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

the atoms at that time

00:03:19 --> 00:03:28

it was known as the Yamuna. janelia The days of the ignorance, the atoms were the most ignorant people of the world.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:32

Allah subhana wa Taala

00:03:34 --> 00:03:34


00:03:38 --> 00:03:45

the last and final message the Glorious Quran to the last and final messenger prophet masala salam, and

00:03:46 --> 00:03:49

he made this Yama janelia

00:03:51 --> 00:03:56

these Arabs were the most ignorant people, he made them the torchbearer of the world.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

Muslims in the earlier time

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

they were top of the world

00:04:07 --> 00:04:08

the rule the world.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:19

And the reason the Muslims were on top of the world because the Muslims at that time, they were close to the Quran and Sunnah.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:28

They followed the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala given in the Glorious Quran, and the teachings of Prophet mama Salah Solomon's authentic hadith

00:04:30 --> 00:04:33

that they're even the Muslims were on top of the world.

00:04:37 --> 00:04:38

And I started my talk

00:04:40 --> 00:04:48

by quoting a verse from the Quran from Alan Moran. Chapter number three was the 100 cv says Walter c mu Be humble Elijah Meola.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:56

Hold all together strong lead to the rope of Allah and vino divided which is the rope of Allah

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

the rope of Allah

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

Is the Glorious Quran, the Glorious Quran and the teachings of Prophet masala Salah been decided they are the robe of Allah.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:13

If we Muslims

00:05:15 --> 00:05:24

hold strongly together to the rope of Allah, the glorious Koran and authentic and if you are not divided, inshallah will remain on top of the world forever.

00:05:25 --> 00:05:33

Today the situation of the Muslims is because we have gone far away from the rope of Allah from foreign inauthenticity

00:05:34 --> 00:05:37

and we Muslim today are divided.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:45

We are divided amongst ourselves. It's very easy to divide the Muslims made easy.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:57

Give them some money and they're divided. Give them some power, and they're divided. Give them some faith and they get divided, full world you see around us

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

and our beloved foreign masala Sallam said that before cameras Muslim will be like for large numbers like for no value.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:14

Today the religion which is practice most in the world in Islam, and number maybe Christians

00:06:15 --> 00:06:29

but most of them don't practice. I'm going to start seeing the religion that is followed and practice the most in the world. Number one is Islam. But look at us. We are looked down upon. People are afraid to call themselves Muslims.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:32

They're afraid to keep up here they are afraid to wear a cap.

00:06:35 --> 00:06:43

The situation that we Muslim law because number one we have gone away from Quran and Sunnah. And number two we are divided.

00:06:50 --> 00:07:14

And this verse of Surah Tauba chapter, verse, chapter three, verse three, after Singh Watterson will be obliged to hold strongly to the rope of Allah and below divided it faith and remember the favors of Allah subhana wa Taala that you are enemies into one another and united your hearts. And if you read the film, they can see the New Zealand Iran it phase

00:07:15 --> 00:07:17

How was this IRB

00:07:18 --> 00:07:21

at the time, after the Battle of her name,

00:07:23 --> 00:07:26

when the spoils of war, when the booty was divided.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to him masala salam, that they should give the major portion to mala for

00:07:36 --> 00:07:52

those whose hearts are coming towards Islam. They were chief chief of the Arab tribe, who didn't have much faith to prevent them from going back to disbelief. Allah revealed to the Prophet that give this spoils of war to them.

00:07:55 --> 00:08:03

When the Prophet mama Salah Salaam gave the spoils of war, the booty Malik aneema to

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

the chief Arabs,

00:08:06 --> 00:08:09

the unsolved they were offended, they felt bad.

00:08:10 --> 00:08:20

And they start speaking among themselves, that the Prophet mama Salah Salam knows Bella. He's giving major of the world to his people.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:47

And they will discard the Prophet masala Salam was patient he kept quiet. He led the situation center down, then he calls the answer separately, so that no one else's day when he addresses them.

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

And when he gathers them separately,

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

he asked them a question.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:03

Do you not know that you were astray? And Allah guided you through me?

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

And all the answers said, Oh Prophet, you and Allah are both generous

00:09:13 --> 00:09:14

than the Prophet said.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:20

that weren't your enemies and to one another disunited and I united all of you.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:25

All of them said yes, you're right. And you're most generous.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

The Prophet said, weren't you poor?

00:09:31 --> 00:09:32

And I gave you went.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:49

All done, sir said the profit is right. And most generous, so much so that the answer started to cry, and the beards became wet. This is how our beloved prophet masala Salam prevented a fitna

00:09:50 --> 00:10:00

prevented disunity by reminding them the favors of Allah subhanaw taala and then this was Allah says that Don't you remember that you were enemies and to one another and

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

United you

00:10:02 --> 00:10:18

trying to tell them that what I've given you is much more. And they realize the mistake and decide to cry. And they said Allah and His Messenger are most generous. You're a major disunity was prevented by the beloved masala

00:10:20 --> 00:10:21


00:10:22 --> 00:10:24

is one of the biggest fitna.

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

And we have several such examples.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:36


00:10:38 --> 00:10:42

we realize that we as being human beings,

00:10:43 --> 00:10:49

there were differences of opinion even among the companions of the Prophet, even among the sabas.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:53

But that does not mean that they fought with each other.

00:10:54 --> 00:10:59

Like today we have it's very common. If I don't agree with certain thing with another Muslim,

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

you start abusing them.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:04

We start cussing them.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:09

Today takfiri is very common, one Muslim calling another Muslim macafem

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

It's a great sin. A Beloved Prophet said that if you call someone a coffee, then if he's not a coffee, that coffee, that * return back to you.

00:11:21 --> 00:11:24

It is only Allah and His Rasool who can call someone a coffee.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:33

we human beings cannot, unless you have 100% evidence from Quran and sahadi few exceptions.

00:11:36 --> 00:11:45

We cannot call another believer just because he doesn't agree with your view. You start abusing him. You start calling him names, you disagree with him, you fight with him.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:54

Many times they were disagreement among the sabas but they always stood by each other.

00:11:56 --> 00:12:13

And whenever the enemy tried to take advantage there are many incidences when the Sahaba disagreed and enemy tried to say okay, fine, you know, if you want I'll help you against him and I will attack him. The Saba is never allowed that. They said we are Muslim Brothers, you dare interfere an affair. We may disagree over a matter

00:12:14 --> 00:12:20

but the never allowed any enemy of Islam, any opponent to come close to any of them.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:22

This was the unity

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

and I'll give you an example.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:32

About the incidence of burning Pereda

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

after the Battle of Azov.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:48

W Salam comes until homosassa salam, the Rishi attack blucora. And there were three tribes that had a treaty with the Muslims, the Jewish tribe, and all of them betrayed the last one was

00:12:50 --> 00:12:56

to Djibouti Salam tells masala Salam that the betrayed you go and attack.

00:12:57 --> 00:13:01

So, masala Sallam called the Sabbath and tells them that all of you

00:13:03 --> 00:13:05

you should pray a sir and

00:13:07 --> 00:13:08

this was the instruction

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

given by the prophet to the Sabbath that all of you pray

00:13:15 --> 00:13:21

in Bartow Florida. Now, when this instruction was given, two meanings can be understood by it.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:24

Number one can be

00:13:25 --> 00:13:31

that all the sub bass should play a sorry Monica irrespective whether they reach before sunset after sunset.

00:13:33 --> 00:13:41

Other people may understand that what the prophet meant was that we should reach bonagura before the end of our Salah

00:13:43 --> 00:13:54

We should hurry and reach them before the end of our Salah. But that doesn't mean that if you are not able to reach by sunset, we don't pass or before that two meanings.

00:13:56 --> 00:14:00

And but natural if you analyze the second meaning is more appropriate is more correct.

00:14:02 --> 00:14:04

Because missing any fella deliberately

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

is forbidden in Islam.

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

The Prophet never asked someone to miss the Salah, but a person can understand this instruction in two way. The second instruction is more authentic way to be understood, because the prophet will not tell anyone to Mrs. For Salah never

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

you cannot miss any Salah without a valid reason intention.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:46

Even in the battlefield, Allah says you have to pray whether you pray walking or running or on the camera you have to pray in the battlefield. One group of people pray in JAMA, the other keeps watch then the second group prays and the first keep watch.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:50

So based on all this ruling the correct understanding of the second one but

00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

person can misunderstand two ways. So what happened when the Sahaba when they go towards buena Coretta and they're unable to reach

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

They're before sunset. So some of them pray before rushing Manuka and some of them put it aside after sunset in Monroe, Florida.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:17

So when the Sabbath differed, both the groups went to the prophet and asked

00:15:18 --> 00:15:25

who's getting porphyrin as the first group, what did you understand? When I said that pre acid

00:15:26 --> 00:15:33

in blucora the first group said we thought that okay we have to pray a ceremony for the irrespective whether we reach before sunset after sunset.

00:15:34 --> 00:15:37

Is that what you understood? They said, Yes. So you print

00:15:38 --> 00:15:43

a sir after sunset monogram, they said yes. Okay, you're right, that 40 understood,

00:15:44 --> 00:16:00

you followed it right, profit as the next one Did you understand? We understood that you told us that you should reach Bhanu parada before the end of that meal before sunset, so that we can pray there, but because we could not reach and praying, we prayed

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

before we pray

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

and then

00:16:05 --> 00:16:06


00:16:08 --> 00:16:19

after sunset, the prophet that is how you understand they said Yes, you are right. The profits and both are and because they understood that way. And both were doing

00:16:20 --> 00:16:22

it out of the messenger

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

for the profits and Buddha right.

00:16:26 --> 00:16:34

The main intention was to obey the messenger. So if you understand wrong, and yet to obey,

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

you get yourself.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:46

A Beloved Prophet masala Salam said that if a person does he has and gives the wrong fatwa, he gets one. So if you give the right fatwa, he gets to Salah.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:52

The Sahaba never fought among themselves. You're right, I'm right. You're wrong. I'm wrong.

00:16:56 --> 00:17:02

There was unity. Imagine in such a big issue. not praying Salah intentionally is a big

00:17:07 --> 00:17:12

problem if you miss a Salah. Yet, the sub has never fought today.

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

We may differ.

00:17:15 --> 00:17:19

Some of us when we go for the salute from Pam,

00:17:20 --> 00:17:33

we keep our hand first, then our knees. Some of them keep the knees first and then the hand then they fight over it. If we differ, we fight I'm right. You're wrong.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:37

You're not a good Muslim, you're doing better, you're doing good.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

This is against Islam,

00:17:42 --> 00:17:45

disrupting the unity of the Muslim ummah.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:57

We have to agree to disagree, it is not a matter of further harm, irrespective whether you put your hand first on the foot will will your Salah be accepted or not? Of course, it will be

00:18:00 --> 00:18:02

it is not the question of that Salah will not be accepted.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

So why do you have to fight over it

00:18:08 --> 00:18:14

in some parts of India, people even literally have fist fight them and kill each other for the spawn issues.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:23

When we go into coup

00:18:25 --> 00:18:27

and after a coup when we come and we say

00:18:28 --> 00:18:29

Allah column

00:18:30 --> 00:18:31

I can see

00:18:32 --> 00:18:36

some of the keep the hands on the chest after getting some keep it under sight.

00:18:40 --> 00:18:43

According to the first three imams Imam Abu hanifa Imam Shafi

00:18:45 --> 00:18:51

Maliki mama Shafi they said keep it on the side mmm the numbers are keeping on the chest.

00:18:52 --> 00:18:58

Both of them believe in the Hadith 15 the hands where they will before after you get up from the ruku

00:18:59 --> 00:19:16

keep your hands visible before some scholars thought that keep the hands where they were before you started the Salah. So they kept the handier when understanding some understood, keep the hand where they were before you went into Roku and they keep it here.

00:19:20 --> 00:19:26

I am a follow one particular thing. I don't fight with the other review. These are small issues

00:19:30 --> 00:19:33

where you keep your hand when you get up from the ruku

00:19:35 --> 00:19:37

and the scholar that at the time

00:19:38 --> 00:19:41

all all the time multiple great scholars

00:19:43 --> 00:19:48

they respected each other's we will have the difference today. We cannot tolerate it.

00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

And if you see besides you, your person praying next to you is putting your hand first and you prefer putting your knee first while going for sudduth

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

full time we'll be thinking about that tomorrow. You're concerned you're gonna you're concentrating on the person next to you.

00:20:06 --> 00:20:15

And then your heart. Oh, this person is doing something wrong. Instead of who chanela your motherboard, Amanda salado, then you start fighting with him

00:20:17 --> 00:20:18

what's happened to the Muslim Ummah?

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

If you see the example of the people

00:20:24 --> 00:20:31

who have knowledge and even today, I remember when we had called shakes out the shame and the shame the mama from

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


00:20:35 --> 00:20:41

when we invited him to Bombay for a conference a game and we took him to various different mosques to offer salah

00:20:42 --> 00:20:47

and once he was supposed to offer Salah in one of the mosque, fossa

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

not that group

00:20:52 --> 00:21:01

where this mosque was the belief that a travel a fee no normally when you're traveling, you shorten your salary for a car.

00:21:04 --> 00:21:14

So, but that grew believed that if a person was a travel and lead the Salah to Russia, then we cannot continue praying for rocket and there was a discussion now Mr. moharram is coming

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


00:21:17 --> 00:21:19

then already

00:21:20 --> 00:21:22

agreed upon the time for sir comes.

00:21:24 --> 00:21:30

Then I tell this to him that you know, these people are going to see that no problem. I will prefer a cat

00:21:34 --> 00:21:40

because for a traveler to prey, Casa shorten his moustache. It's not fun,

00:21:41 --> 00:22:00

but to create a fitna, it is worse than murder. So he said no problem. If there is a problem in the mosque, I will pray for the traveler. Then the committee again got together. No, no, no, no, let's pray two rakaat. We will pray for a copy. This is the hikma we don't find a word. Mr. Muharram is coming.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:07

He agrees with the view that a traveler should pay to Raka and if a traveler is the man he preached,

00:22:09 --> 00:22:13

the remaining people get up and stand but he knew that to prevent a fitna.

00:22:15 --> 00:22:27

Let us small loss take place to prevent a big loss This is the soul of the Sharia. Let us small loss take place to prevent a big loss he may not be doing thing which is observed ignoring most bodies preventing a

00:22:29 --> 00:22:35

big fight in the Muslim Ummah fitna is worse than even murder.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:48

So see these people with knowledge, but we what we do, we will fight over it thinking that we are great scholars, and we will quote this or this and that and try and provide right your

00:22:51 --> 00:22:53

what's happened to the Muslim Ummah

00:22:56 --> 00:22:58

and you can use several such examples.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:05

We know that there is added

00:23:06 --> 00:23:07

and the difference of opinion

00:23:08 --> 00:23:12

that if a person who's in Voodoo, if you eat Tamil meat

00:23:14 --> 00:23:25

they will do bricks. So one group of people believe that if you eat Campbell's meat, you do breaks there's one group of scholars who believe that the Voodoo doesn't break

00:23:26 --> 00:23:28

so imagine if you're called for a walima

00:23:30 --> 00:23:31

or for dinner

00:23:32 --> 00:23:42

and you have that dinner and in the dinner there's camel meat served and you want to offer Salah maybe one Muslim may go into the other say that my Voodoo is not broken I will continue

00:23:43 --> 00:23:45

if you believe your window is broken okay.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:54

But that doesn't mean if your other Muslim brother believes that the Buddha is not broken you will force him to do and what if he happens to be the man

00:23:56 --> 00:23:59

he is the man did not do Voodoo I cannot pray behind him

00:24:03 --> 00:24:13

shake mama Salim note I mean he says I believe that the Voodoo bricks but if I'm with the Muslims, and there's another Muslim brother of mine who believed that the Voodoo doesn't break any fees

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

I will not say okay is not there and without musalla is not there and how can envision a man myself I'm not accepted.

00:24:28 --> 00:24:37

This is how the scholars think. But unfortunately we come in Muslims we fight over small minor issues all these issues are minor.

00:24:39 --> 00:24:40

You may have your view,

00:24:41 --> 00:24:47

do research Alhamdulillah follow what you think is absurd. Please do it. I'm not telling you don't do research.

00:24:48 --> 00:24:52

What do you believe is right do proper Richard do USD hat.

00:24:53 --> 00:24:59

If it's right Allah will give you to sum up if it's wrong Allah give you one Saba, but please don't create a fitna in the Muslim ummah.

00:25:02 --> 00:25:03

Don't fight over each other.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:08

Don't abuse each other. Don't call one another.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:11

on small issues.

00:25:15 --> 00:25:16

One may ask me

00:25:18 --> 00:25:19

if it's a thing of either,

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

if it's a major thing, what to do.

00:25:23 --> 00:25:26

If it's a thing of akiza, if it's a major thing,

00:25:27 --> 00:25:29

something to do with a bother,

00:25:30 --> 00:25:31

I will be lucky.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:36

If I see a Muslim I can do this law. But there is therefore to do.

00:25:39 --> 00:25:45

I will call him to Quran and the hadith of masala salam, I will not call him towards me.

00:25:47 --> 00:25:48

I will call him to align is

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

the common factor uniting all the Muslims of the world is the Glorious Quran and the hadith of Hamas, Allah Salam that said, Call him towards it.

00:26:02 --> 00:26:09

I'm aware that there are differences of opinion there are, but most of the differences are minor differences. It's not worth fighting over.

00:26:11 --> 00:26:15

If it's a major issue, yes, you should do your research. You do your thing.

00:26:18 --> 00:26:20

animistic you're deficient? Alhamdulillah you have to.

00:26:22 --> 00:26:28

And if you really want to get someone to the straight path, you can ask him three basic questions.

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

Ask him

00:26:30 --> 00:26:32

that what you're saying, Are you on truth?

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

Are you on Huck?

00:26:35 --> 00:26:39

And but naturals that Muslim will say yes. What I'm saying I'm on Huck

00:26:42 --> 00:26:49

asked him that did you come on directly? Or did you do research? Okay, I did research, no problem. asked him the second question.

00:26:51 --> 00:26:57

Do you want to be on half? And he said, Yes. I want to be on a third question. Are you a Muslim?

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

Are you sinless?

00:27:01 --> 00:27:03

Do you never make mistakes?

00:27:06 --> 00:27:09

If you the Muslim will have to say that I'm not Muslim.

00:27:12 --> 00:27:13

I'm a human being I can make mistakes.

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

You will give you a proof. Do me give you the lead. But do it with Hickman who's not not fighting over each other. And there is a time when you should be given

00:27:29 --> 00:27:37

then you can give you the lead. And if we differ, we agree to disagree. We agree to disagree.

00:27:39 --> 00:27:57

Not that you have to agree with what your other Muslim Brothers saying if you agree to disagree, but don't fight over it. That doesn't mean Okay, fine. I don't agree with him that because because he's shaking his finger in the Salah. And if someone else comes and criticize him, I will go and join hands with him.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:14

These are all most of them are minor issues. If it's a major issue, okay, you can tell them but if they disagree, we'll have to fight over it.

00:28:16 --> 00:28:29

We agree to disagree and all the images and all the top scholars that you see all the top scholars they always said all the for Mr. vaso Mr. Abu hanifa Mr. Malik

00:28:31 --> 00:28:44

Imam Shafi mmm the number may or may Allah have mercy on all of them. name Allah, Allah all of them said that if you find my opinion, if you find my fatwa, which goes against Allah,

00:28:46 --> 00:28:53

against the Quran, or against the teachings of say Hadith, then you reject my fatwa, ignore my opinion.

00:28:55 --> 00:28:58

If you find any, say, Hadith of the Prophet, that there's no opinion

00:29:04 --> 00:29:08

even though the default they respected each other's opinion.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:33

And today, we find this I give you example, only of talking about something about the issues of small issues of other things that are Muslim that divided because of social issues, Muslim law, very progressive political issues, Muslims are divided because of business issues.

00:29:37 --> 00:29:42

Can because of business? Can you be against any other Muslim brother Can you?

00:29:48 --> 00:29:52

A Beloved Prophet masala Sallam said in sable parvalbumin number 13.

00:29:54 --> 00:29:59

A believer is not a true believer until he wants for his Muslim brother what he wants for himself.

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

Muslims are competing in business you would want to be better than him

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07

and to

00:30:08 --> 00:30:13

be better than him, you will join hands with an unbeliever to put him down in business

00:30:15 --> 00:30:17

to cause loss to your Muslim brother.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:26

Our beloved prophet masala Sallam said

00:30:28 --> 00:30:35

that the Muslim believers, they are like different parts of a building and clusters handling that and say Buhari

00:30:37 --> 00:30:45

when number 300 number 2446. Do focus region, we may differ you may, you may be opponent business, no problem.

00:30:46 --> 00:31:08

He may be your opponent, maybe 10 academics may be in sports. But that doesn't mean that to put your opponent to the Muslim down, you join hands with the enemies just so that you get a medal or you get more profit. And this is common throughout the Muslim world that you see.

00:31:09 --> 00:31:14

Today, I believe the maximum disunity that you find in the full Muslim history

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

edition and it is deteriorating, going from bad to worse.

00:31:26 --> 00:31:51

Allah says in the Quran, in Surah chapter three verse 104. Lead they arise on to fuse a band of people that invite people to the good and forbidding them from doing wrong deeds are the ones that shall attend Felicity. Allah subhana wa Taala is talking about a band of towards how we are full time doctors full time engineers full time lawyers, allies talking about full time die those who invite people towards the good

00:31:53 --> 00:31:58

and forbidden from going wrong. These are the ones that shall attain Felicity a higher level agenda.

00:32:02 --> 00:32:08

Allah says the next person so Ramadan chapter three verse 105, and those who divide amongst themselves

00:32:11 --> 00:32:19

and the dispute after the Messiah has been made clear, they shall receive a severe punishment.

00:32:20 --> 00:32:28

Go to divide among themselves and create discord after the signs have been made clear to you, they will receive a philia punishment.

00:32:30 --> 00:32:55

Allah says in the Quran in surah Anam chapter number six, verse number 159. If anyone divides his religion into * or profit, you have nothing to do with him. Allah will take care of his affairs, and Allah will tell him the truth. That means if any Muslim divides his religion into *, Allah does the Prophet you have nothing to do with him. And I love and look after his affairs.

00:32:56 --> 00:33:06

That means making division in the deen and making sects in the deen is prohibited and this has been mentioned in several places in the Quran.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:11

Allah says in Surah, chapter number 30 was number 31 and 32.

00:33:14 --> 00:33:15


00:33:19 --> 00:33:22

oh you believe remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and fear him

00:33:24 --> 00:33:30

and regularly pray and be not like those who join Gods with Allah

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

and divide the religion.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:38

For if you do that, you will receive a severe punishment.

00:33:41 --> 00:33:48

Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter made was number 46 of two laqua tourists will obey Allah and obey the messenger

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


00:33:51 --> 00:33:54

divide not to religion. And if you divide,

00:33:55 --> 00:34:00

you will lose your banker, your strength and your courage.

00:34:04 --> 00:34:09

There are several verses in the Quran talking about the Brotherhood of the Muslim ummah.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:13

Allah says in the Quran in surah ambia chapter number 21

00:34:14 --> 00:34:15

was number 92.

00:34:17 --> 00:34:18

That verily,

00:34:20 --> 00:34:36

your Brotherhood is a single brotherhood. I am your Lord and cherisher so serve me and no one else. Allah repeated the messages for me noon, chapter number 23 was number 52 that verily You are a single brotherhood

00:34:37 --> 00:34:39

and your Lord and cherisher

00:34:40 --> 00:34:42

and fear me and no one else.

00:34:44 --> 00:34:47

Allah says in Surah hoogenraad chapter number 49 verse number 10.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:51


00:34:53 --> 00:34:57

the believers are verily one single brotherhood

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

all the believers

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

They are one single brotherhood

00:35:04 --> 00:35:15

and try and make peace and reconciliation between the two contending parties. That means if among the Muslim, two groups of Muslims,

00:35:16 --> 00:35:22

if there is some dispute, make peace and reconciliation, and Allah will be merciful on you.

00:35:27 --> 00:35:30

Allah says in the Quran in Surah Tauba chapter nine verse number 71.

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

maneuver more minute bottom Alia but the believing men and women, they are protectors unto one another.

00:35:41 --> 00:35:49

And they enjoin people to the good and forbidding them from doing wrong. They offer regular prayers, they give regular charity

00:35:51 --> 00:35:59

and there'll be a law and they will be the messenger. These are the ones that we get a great reward.

00:36:01 --> 00:36:07

Allah says in the Quran that the believing men and women they are protectors and supporters unto one another.

00:36:10 --> 00:36:11

Do we find that today?

00:36:12 --> 00:36:13

Very few.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:21

Allah says in the Quran in surah, Maya chapter number five, verse number two,

00:36:23 --> 00:36:24

help each other

00:36:25 --> 00:36:29

in piety and righteousness, autonomy,

00:36:30 --> 00:36:39

help each other in piety and righteousness and help not each other in sin and in transgression.

00:36:41 --> 00:36:45

That means we Muslims should help each other in taqwa

00:36:47 --> 00:36:48

in PI temperatures,

00:36:49 --> 00:36:53

but do not help each other in sin and in transgression.

00:36:58 --> 00:36:59

The major uniting factor

00:37:01 --> 00:37:04

for the Muslim Ummah is to Doris forum

00:37:05 --> 00:37:06

and the site

00:37:09 --> 00:37:11

It is the duty of every Muslim

00:37:12 --> 00:37:45

that you should obey Allah and obey the messenger. Allah says very clearly, instead of replacing the Quran, Attila what you will soon obey Allah and obey the messenger in swimrun chapter number three was the military to insert a branch up number three was the 132 and sorry, chapter number four was the motor Dean in chapter number four was number 59. In chapter number four was number 69. Instead of either chapter number five or someone ended to insert and file chapter number eight was number one in Sudan file chapter nomade, was number 20. In Sudan file chapter number eight was number 46. In chapter number nine was number

00:37:46 --> 00:38:15

71. insert a new chapter number 24 was the movie to do insert a new chapter number 24 was number 54. In chapter 33, verse number 33, in chapter 33, verse number 71, in Surah, Mohamad chapter number 4733, insert rajaraja. Number 49. was number 14, Insert Image, number 58, was number 13. In chapter number 64, number 12. in several places, Allah says, Attila, obey Allah and obey the messenger.

00:38:16 --> 00:38:18

It is the duty of every Muslim

00:38:19 --> 00:38:21

that he should obey Allah

00:38:23 --> 00:38:27

and obey the messenger. If we only follow these two things,

00:38:28 --> 00:38:30

all the fitna will be removed.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:33

Only do things

00:38:35 --> 00:38:45

we hold fast to the rope of Allah and be not divided. Allah says in Surah Surah Al Imran Chapter number three was number 31. Oh prophet say

00:38:47 --> 00:38:57

if you love Allah, obey me. Allah will love you. And Allah will forgive you for Allah is a forgiving and most merciful. Wala have a photo Rahim.

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

Allah says in Surah azopt chapter number 33 was number 36.

00:39:06 --> 00:39:07

It is not befitting

00:39:08 --> 00:39:13

for any believer, whether man or woman, that when a lion is Rasool

00:39:14 --> 00:39:18

has made a decision that you should have any other opinion.

00:39:20 --> 00:39:20

And if

00:39:22 --> 00:39:25

you disobey Allah and His Messenger, the Wrath of Allah will come on you.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:36

The verse of the Quran is very clear. In surah chapter number 33 was 36. It is not befitting for any believer,

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

whether man or woman, that once Allah and His Messenger have made a decision that you should have any other opinion besides that.

00:39:49 --> 00:39:54

And if anyone or disobey the law, the Wrath of Allah and His grace of Allah welcome.

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

So where is the difference?

00:40:04 --> 00:40:05

V Muslims

00:40:06 --> 00:40:12

should be united. Allah says in the Quran in surah Isaiah chapter number five verse number 72.

00:40:14 --> 00:40:22

Allah says in the Quran in surah mother chapter number five verse number 97 that take what the prophet gives you an abstain from what he prohibits you from.

00:40:26 --> 00:40:33

Allah says in Surah chapter seven verse 57, that take what the prophet gives you an abstain from what he prohibits you

00:40:39 --> 00:40:41

and a beloved prophet masala Sallam said

00:40:42 --> 00:40:44

it's mentioned as a hadith of without

00:40:45 --> 00:41:04

warning number five. Hadith number 4596. a beloved Padma Salah Salim said that the Jews were divided into 71, or 72 *, the Christians were divided into 71 or 72. * and my oma will be divided into 736.

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

The next Hadith also say headed off without for number five. Number 4597. a beloved Porter masala Sallam said that

00:41:16 --> 00:41:30

the people of the book the Jews and the Christians, they were divided into 72 sects and my Ummah will be divided into 73 sects 72 will go to *. And one will go to Paradise Jana,

00:41:31 --> 00:41:37

the one that will follow the JAMA, the one that we followed the main body of the Muslim Ummah

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

with another Hadith

00:41:42 --> 00:41:45

also say Howdy, in JAMA tirmidhi.

00:41:46 --> 00:41:56

One number 500 number 2640. The beloved porque nosotros Sallam said that the Jews were divided into 71 or 72 sects.

00:41:57 --> 00:41:59

The Christians were divided into a similar number.

00:42:01 --> 00:42:07

My Ummah will be divided into 73 sects. The next ID of Jeremy tirmidhi one number five,

00:42:08 --> 00:42:11

number 2641.

00:42:13 --> 00:42:14

a beloved port masala Sallam said

00:42:15 --> 00:42:16


00:42:19 --> 00:42:20

there will be a time

00:42:22 --> 00:42:26

when Omar will follow the people have been nice, right?

00:42:28 --> 00:42:33

And when the people have been nice, right, when they do dinner with their mother in the open,

00:42:35 --> 00:42:37

one person from my community will do the same.

00:42:40 --> 00:42:49

Note the words of the Prophet the time will come when my people will follow the people of Israel. When they do dinner with their mother in the open.

00:42:51 --> 00:42:53

One person from my community will do the same.

00:42:54 --> 00:42:55

And then the Prophet said

00:42:57 --> 00:42:58


00:42:59 --> 00:43:18

the Bani Israel were divided into 71 or 72 cents, my Omar will be divided into 73 sects, all will go to *, except one will go to Paradise. And the narrator of the Hadith of the lab, numerous men lobby visit him. He asks

00:43:19 --> 00:43:21

Oprah Prophet, who are the

00:43:22 --> 00:43:25

who will go to Paradise, he said those

00:43:26 --> 00:43:35

that are with me and my companions, those which are on the path of masala Salaam, and the sahabas.

00:43:39 --> 00:43:41

Imagine our beloved prophet Romo. salatu salam,

00:43:42 --> 00:44:00

he's predicting they will be 73 sects. The Prophet didn't say mix *. Allah says don't make * Haram. But the prophet predicted even though Allah said don't make sense, mine is going to be divided into 73 sects, all will go to *, except one.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:08

That which follows the main body, the JAMA and that which is on the path

00:44:09 --> 00:44:11

of the fool and the sahabas.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:17

dimension imagine, out of 73 sects 72 will go to *.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:21

And all of us Muslims, we are the people that will go to Paradise.

00:44:24 --> 00:44:33

Only made you can be the people who go to Jenna is if you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet, and that of the Sahaba as

00:44:34 --> 00:44:39

you follow the Hadith as per the understanding of the Sahaba was

00:44:44 --> 00:44:46

a beloved prophet masala Salaam said

00:44:47 --> 00:44:51

it's mentioning say Buhari, word number eight. Number 6011.

00:44:52 --> 00:44:58

A Beloved Prophet said that the believers they love one another. They're merciful to one another

00:45:01 --> 00:45:05

They are trying to one another, they are like one body. If one part

00:45:07 --> 00:45:14

gets sick, then the whole body is sleepless and in fever.

00:45:16 --> 00:45:29

That means if any one of the Muslim brother is harmed to full Muslim Ummah, should be in trouble. That's what the prophet meant. Today we find there are many of the Muslim Brothers of ours in different parts of the world, they are suffering.

00:45:31 --> 00:45:32

And what are the other Muslims doing?

00:45:35 --> 00:45:46

I know that most of the Muslims can do much besides bring Dawa, which is the least we can do. But there are Muslims who can speak and they don't speak. There are Muslims who can help and they don't help.

00:45:50 --> 00:45:51


00:45:52 --> 00:45:57

Allah has given us Muslims wealth, at the time of the Prophet,

00:45:58 --> 00:46:03

the Sabbath or already poor. Today, we have the black golden

00:46:05 --> 00:46:18

the richest people in the world today are the Muslims. They may not be on the Forbes list, because all of them are personal wealth. The Forbes list is only that in which is listed companies, private companies are not on the Forbes list.

00:46:20 --> 00:46:23

According to me, the 100 richest people most of them will be in the Gulf country almost all

00:46:26 --> 00:46:27

I personally know

00:46:28 --> 00:46:32

Muslims who can have 1010 digits in the pocket. Personally I know many of them.

00:46:36 --> 00:46:38

What What is the state of the Muslim Ummah today?

00:46:40 --> 00:46:44

We are using that money to help the enemies of Islam to attack the Muslims.

00:46:48 --> 00:46:53

They're using that money to bribe the enemies of Islam to fight against our Muslim enemies.

00:46:59 --> 00:47:01

If we know our final goal

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

is our Hara.

00:47:05 --> 00:47:08

Allah says in the Quran, that if you want this dunya

00:47:10 --> 00:47:22

Allah will give you the Soumya but will not give you a Hara sorry Baccarat chapter two was number 200 next was to the Baccarat chapter two was 201 Allah says those are the people who set up an Athena fintona has netofa like

00:47:23 --> 00:47:28

that, Oh my Lord, give us the good in this world and our camera and save us from the torment of hellfire.

00:47:32 --> 00:47:33

If we really know

00:47:34 --> 00:47:40

the son of the beloved father masala Salaam, we did not care for this wealth, we will not care for this money.

00:47:41 --> 00:47:48

Our beloved prophet masala Salam said, the Torah kosuna that you offer before your fudger for further for Salah

00:47:50 --> 00:47:56

it is more valuable than the Earth and the wealth in it. So every true Muslim

00:47:57 --> 00:48:03

is 1000 times more richer than Bill Gates right or wrong. But if you have faith in our Prophet, how many of us have

00:48:07 --> 00:48:12

a beloved Prophet said if you offer the Torah kasana before the Father Salah

00:48:13 --> 00:48:16

it is more valuable than the Earth and the wealth in it.

00:48:23 --> 00:48:25

So if we follow Allah and Allah

00:48:29 --> 00:48:42

and if our main aim is acara no one can disturb the Muslim but the problem is, Allah says in the Quran, the wealth will be a test and a trial for you. Your children will be a test and a trial for you.

00:48:44 --> 00:48:54

For less testing, and our beloved Prophet said, I'm not so much bothered about, about poverty in my community. I am bothered about the wealth when my community gets wealth and that's what's happening today.

00:48:56 --> 00:49:07

The Prophet said he is more afraid. When my community will be rich. He is not afraid when the community will be poor that there is in the Prophet said it is easier for a poor man to go to Jonathan a rich man

00:49:10 --> 00:49:12

the wealth in the fifth Night of the test for you.

00:49:21 --> 00:49:23

And we Muslims

00:49:24 --> 00:49:35

we should mind it you should be united on the basis of Allah and a beloved prophet of Allah Salaam said it mentioned amateur MIDI say this word number for

00:49:37 --> 00:49:38

Hadith number 2166.

00:49:40 --> 00:49:42

That Allah hand

00:49:43 --> 00:49:44

will be

00:49:45 --> 00:49:46

over the JAMA

00:49:47 --> 00:49:48

myth the main body

00:49:51 --> 00:49:59

geometry MIDI wire number 400 number 2167. Save that alive hand we build the JAMA and Allah will never let

00:50:01 --> 00:50:06

The oma be united on a disagreement never be united on a thing which is wrong.

00:50:08 --> 00:50:11

Allah will never let the oma unite one thing which is wrong.

00:50:13 --> 00:50:28

We Muslims should be united on the banner of the Quran and Hadith instead of calling us that I'm so and so and so and so, you know people give themselves liberal I'm a better Muslim and the one good good two gentlemen they give themselves label x y Zed.

00:50:29 --> 00:51:10

The best label you can give is the label given by Allah subhana wa Taala. And that is called in the middle Muslim and say that I'm a Muslim. Allah says in the Quran in surah, chapter three, verse number 52. That when if Allah Salam told the unfair, who was going to be the answer told his followers, they said we will be unfair of Allah, and we are Muslims. Allah says in Surah branch chapter three, verse 67, that it says that the Prime Minister lamb was not a Jew or a Christian, but he was a Muslim. Allah says in Surah embrun chapter number three verse 64, that Allah will actually meet in Sawa in vain Amina, come, come to come in terms asked us and you which is the first term

00:51:10 --> 00:51:42

Allah Illallah that we worship none but Allah. Well, I'm Misha ba Yo, that we associate the partner with him while he's about to Nevada and Alibaba and Manila that we enact not among ourselves, lords and Payton other than Allah for interval law, if they turn back for kulu shadow, say a bear witness be anomalously moon, that we are Muslims bowing our will to Allah subhanho wa Taala the label Allah has given us this Muslims. If someone asks you what are you you should say you're a Muslim, instead of giving a label.

00:51:43 --> 00:51:48

The best label you can give yourself is the label given by Allah subhana wa Taala Muslim

00:51:50 --> 00:51:54

and the best profession you can follow his profession of calling people towards

00:51:55 --> 00:52:14

Allah subhanaw taala. Allah says in the Quran in surah pusilla chapter number 41 was the mortality woman as a new column women boy in the law, he was among the family home. All indian indian Muslim men who is better in speech than one we invite to the way of the Lord was righteousness and says that I am a Muslim.

00:52:16 --> 00:52:55

I would like to end my speech with the tradition of the goddess from which appears in the Quran no less than three different places in Surah Tauba chapter nine, verse number 33. And so the Fatah chapter number 48 was number 28. And so the sub chapter number 61, was the main Allah says, who will be our Salah solo below da what luzira Allah de Nicola, that Allah sent His messenger with guidance and the origin of truth so that it will prevail over all the other religion or all the other ways of life. And I'll end by saying, that what Elijah and enough is Allah is over this and in two places Allah says that, who are lazy

00:52:57 --> 00:53:07

would be no use either well de Nicola, that Allah and His messenger with guidance and the lien of truth so that it will prevail over all the other religions or all the other isms

00:53:09 --> 00:53:16

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