Alhamdulillah Wassalatu wassalamu Alaa Rasulullah.

We need to wake up my brothers and sisters, because we don’t even know where are we heading to and the pitiful moment is we never take a break to ask our self what wrong with us, are we okay? or we are just blindly chasing Layla [Dunya]. Are you just thinking that there is still a time but you have forgotten that death will not give you a sign that it will come to you, have you forgotten that you will be put into grave and you have to know that you will not be asked about your culture in your grave and you will not be judged based on your father’s last name. When the trumpet blares there will be no more kings, slaves and your family traditions will be able to keep you safe, your language will bring you no comfort on that day and no one will care about the kind of food your mother used to make.

The angle of death does not discriminate,
Allaah said ‘’Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 185″

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوْنَ أُجُورَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَمَن زُحْزِحَ عَنِ النَّارِ وَأُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ فَقَدْ فَازَ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ
Every soul shall taste of death, and you shall only be paid fully your reward on the resurrection day; then whoever is removed far away from the fire and is made to enter the garden he indeed has attained the object; and the life of this world is nothing but a provision of vanities.

No matter your ethnic group clan or position you hold we are all created from little thing we ignore “clay”
Allaah said; Surah Al-Mumenoon, Verse 12:

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ

And certainly We created man of an extract of clay.

Many nation have came before, many nation have been replaced, this dunya is a deception, we’ve left the example of best generation for these so called sensation, we dont even feel save in our homes again, do we even remember what life was back in the day when we used to be brothers and we used to stand up for one another in the face of trouble, we used to love one another and understand that your struggle is my struggle, we used to be one. A nation brought together in praise under the morning sun for those who would dare, we would defend our right and liberty we used to care before then about the orphans and anyone else in despair we used to believe in justice but now what wrong with us, we also used to be fair, unity was not just a word but it was a state of mind before states, nations and flags, we were mankind. From the same seed, we were created into the same dirt and we shall return
Allaah said; Surah An-Nisa, Verse 1:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا

O people! be careful of (your duty to) your Lord, Who created you from a single being and created its mate of the same (kind) and spread from these two, many men and women; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship; surely Allah ever watches over you.

But now we are diseased with innovation in the fire left to burn, we seek to please head of nations, compromising what we’ve learned indeed this is a time of humiliation for those who are concerned the state of our affairs is unbearingly absurd taking enemies as friends after the wrath they have incurred empty threats and broken promises vision is becoming blurred you wanna raise your hand up to the sky but most of you are unsure the end is coming near and only one can judge us, how can you be sincere when you forgot your purpose ? This is the final frontier did you not think we would not be tested ridiculed, abused, confused and arrested.
Allaah said; Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 155:

وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُم بِشَيْءٍ مِّنَ الْخَوْفِ وَالْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَنفُسِ وَالثَّمَرَاتِ وَبَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ

And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient.

We are made to feel strange in a place that’s infested but blame is a game that they win uncontested we like to huff and puff about all of our stuff being protected but what is the point in reading books when you don’t understand the message,they divide us and conquered but we used to be connected and you don’t have to like us but you still had to respect us because every corner of the globe but we still face in one direction standing row by row if not today then on the day of Resurrection when there will be no protection without the permission of the one true GOD.
And honored us with this religion [Islam],
Allaah said; ‘’Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 3:

حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةُ وَالدَّمُ وَلَحْمُ الْخِنزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ وَالْمُنْخَنِقَةُ وَالْمَوْقُوذَةُ وَالْمُتَرَدِّيَةُ وَالنَّطِيحَةُ وَمَا أَكَلَ السَّبُعُ إِلَّا مَا ذَكَّيْتُمْ وَمَا ذُبِحَ عَلَى النُّصُبِ وَأَن تَسْتَقْسِمُوا بِالْأَزْلَامِ ذَٰلِكُمْ فِسْقٌ الْيَوْمَ يَئِسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِن دِينِكُمْ فَلَا تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِ الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ فِي مَخْمَصَةٍ غَيْرَ مُتَجَانِفٍ لِّإِثْمٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Forbidden to you is that which dies of itself, and blood, and flesh of swine, and that on which any other name than that of Allah has been invoked, and the strangled (animal) and that beaten to death, and that killed by a fall and that killed by being smitten with the horn, and that which wild beasts have eaten, except what you slaughter, and what is sacrificed on stones set up (for idols) and that you divide by the arrows; that is a transgression. This day have those who disbelieve despaired of your religion, so fear them not, and fear Me. This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favor on you and chosen for you Islam as a religion; but whoever is compelled by hunger, not inclining willfully to sin, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

That last of its kind and a Messenger with a message for all mankind, but I wonder what he would say [PEACE BE UPON HIM] to know that his ummah has gone astray, He taught us how to behave but today our character is so ugly that we don’t even spread Salaam, He even taught us how to pray, He was the best to whoever came before so where is his example today? But the haqq (truth) can never be erased…

He emphasized solidarity it seems like we have forgotten His way [PBUH], our brothers in the land of the opressoppressed for God’s help is near for every tyrant has his time WALLAHU YUHIBBU ASSABIREEN (Allah loves the patience one) there are many in Burma, Palestine and many places in the world getting buried alive its saddening, we need to change our minds, we need to support our brother there is no hope for a nation that is not unified, let rise up together as a ummah for our brothers when in need…..for indeed the world is full of vanity but our deed and charity will account no matter how small,even a smile is is a sadaqah

The state of our Ummah is that we forgot where we came from but when your soul begins to quiver in the shade of your battling chest you will see that this world was nothing but an illusion you were in,
Allaah said; “Surah Al-Hadid, Verse 20:

اعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَزِينَةٌ وَتَفَاخُرٌ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِي الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَوْلَادِ كَمَثَلِ غَيْثٍ أَعْجَبَ الْكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهُ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَاهُ مُصْفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ حُطَامًا وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانٌ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ

Know that this world’s life is only sport and play and gaiety and boasting among yourselves, and a vying in the multiplication of wealth and children, like the rain, whose causing the vegetation to grow, pleases the husbandmen, then it withers away so that you will see it become yellow, then it becomes dried up and broken down; and in the hereafter is a severe chastisement and (also) forgiveness from Allah and (His) pleasure; and this world’s life is naught but means of deception.

O children of Adam don’t be fooled by wicked men because there is only one GOD but enough people don’t remember HIM, I am your reflection our connection is stronger than that of any election.

I seek protection in our LORD may He grant us direction, may He make us among those who love each other for His sake, may He make us among those who will receive His shade and we ask to Allaah to unite this Ummah and to keep us safe. AMEEN
