Every sunset, every week that passes every, month that passes, Every sunset, every week that passes every, month that passes, to hold yourself to account before you are held to account and it is a reminder and a symbol As Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran everything upon the Earth will perish like this year has passed, like another day has passed.
The only thing that remains forever is the face of Our Lord, full of majesty and honour.
So this is an opportunity for us to remind ourselves of the temporary nature of life and the importance for all of us to make the most of this one opportunity We have to be in this Dunya and to leave a legacy.
So the only thing that will last the only thing that we will find with Allah subhanaw Taala are our Deeds. Before that day when we stand on the Day of Judgment I have to answer for our Deeds.
People Sometimes wrongly separate Islam into the rights of Allah and the rights of people. There are the rights of Allah which are directly fulfilled through our worship of Him and then there are the rights of Allah which are fulfilled through with other people.
So use this opportunity to set yourself some goals for the new Islamic year, moderate simple goals.
For the Muslim every day, every new day must be better than the day before.
So this year, this coming year what goals have you put for yourself? What aims and Ambitions have you put for yourself?
We as Muslims should be clear. The Palestine does not belong to the Palestinians. It doesn’t even belong to the Arabs. The land of Palestine is the land of the prophets/ Anbiya.
It is an Amana/ a trust which has been placed in the hands of the Muslim ummah to discharge for a period of time. It cannot be exchanged in return for favours because it is not owned by anybody.
It is an amana of the Muslim ummah given by Allah subhanaw Taala, particularly that land. So we have an important responsibility here to speak out against the oppression; The displacement, the apartheid which is happening To the Palestinian people in particular.
It is our responsibility to speak out against oppression wherever it is across the world the temporary political interest of certain leaders will never stop us doing that.
