Points from todays khutbah

Alhamdulillah wasalatu wasalaam 'ala muhammad wa 'ala alihi wa sahbih.

Todays sermon as we would hope like the sermons in most of the muslim world was influenced by the current events in our heartland, close to the third holiest place masjid al aqsa, these events alhamdulillah have started to wake the sleeping ummah inshaallah for the better, may Allah guide us all back to the deen and forgive all our sins and give us the best success.

The khateebs main points included:
  • situation in gaza is another episode in the struggle between islam and kufr
  • khateeb used the examples from the quran to see why the oppressors are so cruel as in surat buruj verses 7&8 "And they witnessed what they were doing against the believers (i.e. burning them) , They had nothing against them, except that they believed in Allah, the All-Mighty, Worthy of all Praise!" and surat al-maidah part of verse 82 "Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) are the Jews and those who are polytheists..."
  • the issue of particularly targetting HAMAS was because they proved to be able to govern its people and give inspiration of future islamic states in the muslim lands, but their destiny in the eyes of the disbelievers was to destroy them like the islamic movements in algeria, somalia, afghanistan, chechnya and others
  • the whole situation didn't come overnight, for decades their plots were being formed including destruction of the khilafah, deals with the british, infiltrating political and media circles and silencing opposing ideas.
  • as it didnt happen overnight, it will not finish over night, the solution has to start with the muslims returning tpo their deen and calling others to it.
  • and the end will be with the army of the believers with Eisa (Jesus) peace be upon him, fighting the dajjal (false messiah) army.

2009 camp conclusion

Alhamdulillah wa salat wa salaam 'ala rasulallah

Alhamdulillah the camp went well, victorian brothers all arrived safely home by this morning and some who left early arrived sunday, may Allah reward the brothers who organised the event and the masheikh who came to benefit us with their knowledge.

There was many activities and state of origin competitions including soccer, water polo and volleyball, we also had rowboating, bushwalking and islamic lectures.

On a saddening note, the zionist aggression on gaza escalated and we had a phone link with a doctor in one of gazas hospitals, he described an alarming and tragic situation in general and spoke of the overwhelmed hospitals and lack of medical supplies and the suffering of the people.

From the day we arrived almost every salat the imam would make qunoot asking Allah to aid the muslims in gaza and around the world.

May Allah guide the ummah back to the deen and may He make the oppressors suffer in this life and the next.
