Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh monadic nama Heymann hamdulillahi rabbil alameen we'll start out to acid on my level say he's kidding right Adi he was like me he ajma'in Imam stood out I still got it doesn't he masha'Allah you look just as good as you did when we were in Baltimore in 2002 Michelle that was my first sticking to convention to see you may Allah sponsor I bless you may Allah rewards you and may allow some kind of whore to allow anything good that we have achieved to be in your scale of good deeds as a community and as they're at and our students of knowledge because you are everyone's teacher here may Allah bless you and somehow Allah the amount of time that I have isn't really enough to deliver the concept but I know that we still have more insha Allah to Allah to go and I know that everyone is here to listen to a variety of things what I wanted to address and there are common themes that we're constantly hearing throughout this convention and in hamdulillahi rabbil al-ameen to see topics that are relevant to see things that our current are important and when we talk about the prophet sallallaahu yoson when we talk about this concept of injustice and dealing with wound and a loss of hannahsz out of himself saying ya ibadi in Nehalem to luma Aden FC o my servants I have made oppression injustice forbidden for myself well to Havana como ha Romo and I've made it forbidden for you fellows Alana mo do not wrong one another my mom Sofia an authority Mahalo to Allah he said Allah subhana WA Ta'ala never other than this prohibits something upon himself for Allah to distance himself from transgression and oppression to a point that allah subhanahu wa ala says I have made it Haram for me the ultimate soul legislator a loss of Hanna Jota added distances himself from a woman and says who are you then to wrong one another who are you then to carry out an injustice against your brother or sister in humanity or in faith because we wronged one another out of a false illusion of power an authority the tyrants of the world both past present and even future think that they have the authority to wrong other people and that's why the messenger sallallaahu any wasalam when he walked by a man once who was beating a servant he said to him Allah is more capable of doing that to you than you are to him and the prophets why Salim feared it for himself Ali his salat WA Salam we're talking about our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and understanding the relevance of the messenger so I said him to our times and to our context the prophets I Salamis aided in her laid about the alar and who narrates that one time the Prophet slice at him he poked one of the young unsought as he was laughing too hard just to tell him to calm down a little bit and oh say it says that that young man stood up to the prophets lie salam and said allow me to avenge myself the prophets Isum could have easily said do you know who I am I don't have time for your games right now we're going through something we're kind of in the middle of battle and important things can we do this later well selasa assalam he says to him go ahead and poke back go ahead and do it and you know what he says back to him he says ya know sort of La in a lake a commie son you have a shirt on you well they salia commies and I don't have a shirt on me and the prophets lie some lifts his shirt and the young man grabs the prophets lie salam and embraces his stomach and he says in the matter to have a yachtie Salalah that's all i really wanted from you yeah rasul allah but look at the fear of the prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam and since it's a conference about muhammad can we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam please I'm only seeing the Imams moving their lips sallallahu alayhi wa sallam peace and blessings be upon him he feared it that much it's not have been I found on the Elan him because this was a culture now a fearing oppressing another being earth man of the Aleut I know at the age of 84 years old Khalifa - Rasul Allah he sallallahu anyway Salim the hadeeth of the messenger slice Allah he pinched a young man's ear and the young man looked at him and he told him you hurt me as mad as an old man could have said shoo just go along but instead it is nominal the alotta and who says pinch my ear back and the young man says that he I'm a kid I'm not going to pinch your ear he says go ahead and pinch and he insisted until the young man put his hands on his ears and he said pinch harder button necklace fossil dunya dunya ah ha no man colossal are futile because the taking back the Revenge of this world is far less than the Revenge of the hereafter go ahead and pinch harder hurt me so that I can feel it so that Allah subhana WA Ta'ala doesn't take me to account for that on the day of judgement that was the fear that the prophets lice and I'm put in the heart of his companions for wronging another human being however we go a step further it's one thing to not wrong it's another thing to stand with those who are oppressed and those who are wrong to stand with the weak to stand with the downtrodden to stand with people that are oppressed to stand with people who are not given their rights and the prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam profoundly address this attitude in the companions as well so I didn't know me well fossil the allowed I know he looked around at the Companions of the Prophet sly salam and you know a lot of times when we watch those movies we're guilty of this too by the way when we portray the Companions of the Prophet slice along just like musa alayhis salam does not look like Christian Bale alright Zaidan hadith it does not look like he looked like in the movie the message we have changed the image of the Companions as well and the Sahaba were not dressed very well when they first accepted Islam if you were to see the Prophet slicing them and his companions in Mecca they were an abused downtrodden group of people that supported the Prophet slice alone there were some Abu Bakr's there were some Abdul Rahman open house but they were the exception they were not the norm people that had been abused their entire lives on the basis of their race on the basis of their economic status victims of tribalism the brutal system of tribalism those were the people surrounding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you were looking at Abdullah Al Maktoum the Aloha I know the blind poor man you were looking at Balad all the alone time who the more evident of the prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam who was tortured in every imaginable Lane you were looking at hababam a lot you were looking at even Masaru that all the allow Thailand even Massoud was not this huge gallant warrior even Masood all of the allotted on who was number one from no lineage that we know of in fact we don't you know his mother his name is only apt when you look at the history of Islam the mother of Abdullah we don't even know her name even though she was around and even mr. Udall the alotta anhu was physic and in his physical stature was so short that when I want a real table the alotta and who saw him on a real table the Elana and who kneeled down and he was I died with him he sat on his knees he got down in the position of Tobruk in Salah that you sit down and they were eye to eye that's who was with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam this was an abused group of people this was a people that had suffered before Islam and Islam empowered him you had former thugs you had people from the tribe of guffaw which was known for robbing people you had all kinds of people around the prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam and you know what scientific know-how be what cost who's a nobleman he looks around at these people and he's thinking to himself like wow this is aroma analyzation looks at sad and he sees that and he says hello to sorrow now Itoro secona in lab you aha i come does Allah support you or give you victory except by virtue of your weak ones of your vulnerable ones and their inner man interpret that statement in two ways number one that those same people that you think are weak because weakness is a perception in our eyes we think they're weak they're not weak Society might have tried to render them weak but they're not weak those same people that you look at and you belittle are the same people that Allah subhana wa tada will establish the religion on their backs and that's exactly what happens and you know what subhana WA Ta'ala told the prophet sallallaahu re wa sallim because we as human beings naturally target those of influence and you know what i want to underline this we should not focus our data only on people of influence underline only there is a place in Islam for doing data to people in authority and people in power and people who hold influential positions but we should not focus our data only on them why do I say that because Allah subhana WA Ta'ala said it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Wasp enough second ladina you know be humble karate well Oishi you read una waha keep yourself patient with those people that might be perceived as weak but they call upon allah subhanho wa to add a day and night seeking a loss of hannah ho to add as pleasure seeking his face seeking a loss of hannah ho to add us glory and his help those are the people that Allah subhana WA Ta'ala will give victory to this religion through and you know what's amazing when the people of status started to enter into the religion did the prophets lie Selim hold an award ceremony give me a medal give Bob a medal and say thank you for your services but now we're going to put other people in these positions absolutely not Bilal was always the more evident of the prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam even miss ruderal the allahu ta'ala anhu was the close friend of the prophets why some in medina to a point that people thought he was from a debate he was from the family of the prophet slicin because of how close the prophets lie son kept him to him well so la slicin didn't say thank you guys but now we have a beautiful table now we have other people that can take the role no because Allah subhana WA Ta'ala brought greatness to those people and a lot through those people and a lot of times we think that when we do data to only people of influence that's the only way this religion will be given glory and it's never been the case and it will not be the case today and somehow Allah if you looked at excellence projects one of them was the halfway house and I've been at many fundraisers as it can relief when they're going through the halfway house project and people are sitting there thinking themselves like what are these people going to do for us why should we try to provide an avenue for people that have been incarcerated to get back into society and to be empowered again what are they going to do for us subhanallah think about that approach think about that thought think about what your messenger salallahu alayhi wasalam would say to you if you were to say what are we going to do with all these poor people and you know what we've bought into this notion and this is part of our misunderstanding our not understanding the cause of the oppressed and the cause of those who have been wrong for so long in this country that we've actually bought into the narrative that all those who have been incarcerated all those young black men and women that have been incarcerated deserve to be there we bought into it and that's why we have no compassion and I would ask anyone of you would you dare do Dowa to a man named satan would you do that word to a man named shape on if you were to see Malcolm X Y a mulatto era whose nickname at one point in his life became Satan would you have bothered to give the Mandara would you have bothered to give the man a chance I'll take one Malcolm X over a hundred celebrities any day would you give them a chance or would you just overlook him he'll toros upon our tongues I wanna elaborate wathah a comb and the second meaning of that hadith which is the more correct one as al-kitabi rahim allah - allah says that allah subhanahu wa'ta'ala judges a people by the way they take care of the oppressed amongst them Allah will judge a people by the way they deal with their own vulnerable if the people turn their backs and yes it's from the greatest signs of the Day of Judgment the prophets lie solemn asked who was the one that asked me about when the day of judgement is rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said he that will here till amana from cloud leader Sarah when Trust is lost then wait for the day of judgement and they said how is it possible that trust can be lost at Isola he said when people that don't deserve to be in leadership or play in positions of leadership it's very convenient for us to think that one day everything is going to be okay that you know the rulers will be just the presidents will be just the Kings will be just that all you know people who are in religious leadership will be moral and righteous and upright as Sufjan authority mulatto aniseh son Phaenomena nas either Saluja Saluja tell uma well either a facade a facade that in uma there are two groups of people if they are righteous then the entire Ummah will be righteous and if they are corrupt the entire Ummah will be corrupt he said and Maluku nama people who are in authority and the scholars those who are in a place of moral and religious authority but that's not likely to happen it's happened very little in our ouma's history in fact where both of those classes were fully righteous and could be trusted and the OMA could follow in their footsteps meaning we are left to ourselves and we have to ask ourselves how do we treat the poor amongst us where is our war on poverty where is our war on that volume that's been committed against them because that's a transgression as well where is our war on that where is our student of the prophets of Allah and Eva ceremony used to make her out to Allah subhana WA Ta'ala yes a looka fahrenheit Oswalt okinawan karate wobble masakeen oh Allah I ask you for the ability to do good deeds to abandon sins and for the love of the poor where is the love of the poor where is our looking to Allahabad oh the allow Tyler I know the man who felt like the cloth of the Kaaba didn't need to be changed because poor people were more deserving of having their clothes given to them where is the example of Abdullah his son of the lob neuroma who wouldn't have a meal unless there was an orphan at the table where is the example of Amida bin Abdulaziz the grandson who when he was passing away and the royalty of the world came to his door to accompany him he chose to surround himself with the poor because he said these people are closer to a loss of Hannah Montana these are the people I want to be around as I depart from this world that's part of our religion that's part of our faith to take up the cause of the vulnerable that when we go to any society when we are within any lens that whoever is oppressed in that land whoever is being wronged that becomes our cause by extension of our humanity and by over and of our faith as the prophet sallallaahu our us to them and you know think about this well soon lost I seldom all of the verses of caring for the poor and and fighting transgression and fighting oppression they didn't come in Medina they started in Mecca they started in Mecca the verse way adelmo oh that's oh so you got to be I even been quoted at when the young girl who was buried alive is asked for what reason were you killed that's a mucky verse wait a lil more puff ravine that's late Mecca early Medina these are early messages economic trends economic oppression wronging people on the basis of their gender wronging people on the basis of their race on their tribes these are meki messages and you know what the prophets i Salam when he was approached by a people who were being wronged you know a man comes to the Prophet slice em and tells him Abu jahil owes me money and this is in Mecca the Prophet slice Elam doesn't say to him I've got bigger problems with Abu jahil you worry about your money he's trying to kill me the prophets i salaam takes his cause as his own because he knows that the help of allah subhanahu wa'ta'ala comes through helping others that are being wronged and that are being oppressed when we are here in this society when we are part and parcel of this fabric of the fabric of this country it is for us upon us to ally to ally ourselves to be allies of those who are being wronged and those who are vulnerable no matter who they are and i know you've heard this multiple times throughout this convention and over the last few months but dear brothers and sisters to address what's what you perceive to be an unjust reaction to a system that is unjust without addressing the system that is a form of injustice in it of itself that's a form of looting in and of itself when you sit there and you talk about you know the the riots without addressing what causes people to take to the streets and not involving yourself as a community or isn't as an individual with those who are being systematically wrong than have been systematically wrong for so many years that in and of itself is done that in and of itself is an injustice that's a transgression that's your job that's my job and let's stop with the appropriation nonsense it's like go you know it's not a lot a friend of mine mentioned this today when we sit there and we say but we've got bigger issues to worry about we've got other people being killed we've got these people being killed and we've got these people being wronged over there and we've got these people being wronged over there that's like going to someone's funeral and saying I'm not going to grieve for you or pray janazah because I've got my own janazah to tend to it makes no sense it's not from our religion it's hypocritical the profit slicing them didn't do that rasoolallah um never turned down the need of a person because his own need sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was more important at the time every need needs to be addressed by us every single one of them it's our job as a community it's the sunnah of our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and our prophet sallallaahu re wa sallam span Allah I want to leave you with a very beautiful narration from Ana cinematic about the allahu ta'ala anhu you know when we become distressed when we find ourselves vulnerable when we start when we find ourselves in need of someone what we usually turn to as we turn first and foremost to our outlets and we vent about how terrible our lives are we call the imam maybe we go find someone that we can talk to call our friends very few of us will call upon allah subhanahu wa'ta'ala honest if normally called allahu ta'ala anhu he says about the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said I've never seen anyone in my life with a Hodja with a need that he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turned away from him even if the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was suffering himself when the Sahaba would be in would feel any hardship inside of themselves when the Sahaba felt like they needed someone to talk to they knew they could go to the messenger sallallaahu hiding asylum when they felt like they needed some money they needed some help they knew they could go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when they felt like you know things were getting tough on them in this world and that they just needed to talk about life they knew they could go to the prophet sallallaahu I do you assalam when they were hungry they knew they could go to the Prophet slice on him because the prophets Elijah them though he himself was hungry rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would never turn them away he'd never look away it's time for us to not look away and you know subhanAllah and with this in my last two minutes you know even when we speak about the civil rights champions of this country when you speak about about a Martin Luther King jr. and the watered-down narrative of MLK the guy that only gave one speech in his life apparently the I have a dream speech not the man that was considered too radical in the last year of his life that the n-double-a-cp distanced themselves from him not the man that said America suffers from the triple threat of poverty racism and militarism not the man who gave a speech called breaking the silence on the war in Vietnam not the man who was supposed to give a speech the day after he died called why America might go to hell I didn't say it Martin Luther King jr. said it but you know what do we say that out of bitterness towards our country do we say that out of bitterness towards our society do we say that because we like chaos no scheckler cemente me Allah Allah to Allah he says in illallah yoki Madonna to Athena were incarnate kaffir oh boy yeah the medulla Tovar email were incarnate muslima Allah will establish a just nation even if it's a disbelieving nation and he will destroy oppressive nation even if it's a Muslim nation his student in Ohio know him Allah Ta'ala he says allah subhanahu wa'ta'ala never destroyed a nation because of because only its theological disbelief but Allah Azza WA Jalla home Lama vana mu we destroyed nations when they became oppressive so when we stand up for those that are being wronged systematically wronged we are actually doing a service to our country we're actually trying to save our country from ruining itself that's something that allah subhana wa ta'ala gave to us and it's a it's an obligation of faith and it's also what true patriotism is we ask Allah subhana WA Ta'ala to make us the people that stand for the rights of the oppressed that stand for the rights of those who are being wronged to not make us ourselves transgressors or oppressors not even by our silence we ask Allah subhana WA Ta'ala make us a people who see wrong being committed in front of them and who abandoned those people that are being wronged and who neglect those that are wrong we ask a loss of hanwen Sarada for the ability to do good to avoid evil and for the love of the poor Allah I mean Jessica Malone I don't know Saddam re coming up until I break up
