Habib Ali Al Jifri

The Radical Middle Way Part three

Would the first Muslims who came here imagined a mosque such as this

They couldn't have imagined it

We are part of this country

Which country has the most Muslims? Indonesia has the most Muslims in the world. 275 million, 85% of the population 6 men came to Indonesia, they didn’t know the language of the people but they knew the language of the state (of the soul)

There was a man who caused the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) and the Sahaba lots of problems. He asked the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) for refuge three times and every time the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) turned away, and then he (peace and blessings upon him) gave him security. Someone asked the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) why didn't you kill him, after the man had left. It was because the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) didn't have any deceit in him

If our principles are disguarded that is worse than bloodshed

The Battle of Uhud was lost due to love of the world but 5000 angels helped the Muslims on that day The result of this was the martyrdom of many Muslims. i.e. Hamza, Mu'ad

We were beaten this time and we were killed

It was because of one treacherous minister who ordered the dissolving of the army before the Mongols sacked Baghdad The Mongols could see the Muslims, order them to stay there until he would comeback with his sword and kill them.

This was how the Muslims had become degraded. A short time after the Mongols converted and they became the one who prostrate to the Lord of the worlds

The reason for this conversion was because the Muslims had something that they Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) had

Does it remain with us now?

Do we still have what they had? (We do but we have to change ourselves, its us who have to change.)

Have we left these characteristics that some people attribute to weakness

If we loose this, then we loose the ability to carry the Prophetic Message

If a quarter of them understood what his deen meant they would become a representative of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)

We should take this to our neighbours and remove them from darkness

We cannot do this unless we look at the people with eyes of mercy

After we have finished today, don't cash out or hide, bring out the mercy and give them the answer to their problems Islam
