Praise be to Allah Who honoured Islam through the Migration of the leader of Mankind, and elevated the Muslims’ condition by adorning them the crown of support, victory and honour. I praise Him, The Exalted, I repent unto Him, seek His forgiveness, and to Him shall all affairs return. He is the Pardoner, The Oft- Forgiving Lord. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone with no partner, a testimony that benefits the possessor on that day when those in the graves shall be in commotion and that which is (locked up) in (human) breasts is made manifest. And I bear witness that our Prophet Muhammad- THE SERVANT of Allah and His Messenger, the chosen and beloved prophet, may Allah bless him, his family and his companions as long as the seas remain spread, and day and night successively alternate each other, and his successors and those who followed them until the Day of resurrection and in abundant peace. O you people: fear Allah your Lord, for He- The Almighty, is surely deserving to be feared by being obeyed and not disobeyed, and remembered and not forgotten, and thanked not being ungrateful to. { then will ye fear other than Allah? (Nahl: 52). {And remind them of the days of Allah} (Ibrahim: 5) Importance of Remembrance of the prophet’s Migration: Muslim brothers and Sisters, the migration of the Prophet Muhammad- peace be upon him, from Mecca to Medina recurs annually to the memory of the Islamic nation at the beginning of every Hijrah year. This event, which changed the face of human history, where in (ie migration) dawah became proactively progressive, the Islamic state became established, its components defined, the Islamic Call got launched to the worlds (of all races); black and white, and red and yellow, apparently, Islam became a religion for the entire worlds, and it became the fastest growing religion on earth despite the weakness of his faithfuls, producing a nation which led the human race and took them away from the worship of slaves to the worship of the Lord of the Worlds and from narrowness of the world to its expanse and away from the injustices of religions to the justice of Islam. Definition of immigration: The word immigration _ oh worshipers of Allah _ has two meanings in the Quran, the first: to move away from something and hateful avoidance of a person. Allah says: ((O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)!)) till the statement: ((And all abomination shun!)) Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with the two, said: Ar-Rujza is the idols. Dahhaak said: ((And all abomination shun!)) meaning- leave sins. Meaning therefore, that a Muslim should dissociate himself away from everything people worship other than Allah: fetish images, trees, stones, mountains and others as well as withdraw from trust in other than God, seeking help and protection from other than Allah, and avoid also all sins such as the sins of usury, bribery, gambling and fraud, deception and theft, murder and banditry, hatred and envy, lying and betrayal, prostitution, adultery, sodomy and nudity, drinking alcohol and drug abuse and other forms of sins- and habits of ignorance. This is what the prophet (pbuh) referred in his saying: ((The Immigrant is the one who migrated from all Allah Has forbidden)) (agreed upon). And he also says: ((The Immigrant is the one who emigrate from evil deeds)). , Truly speaking, migration is abstaining from sins and evil deeds ... migration from desires and suspicious acts ... migration from evil gatherings .. migration away from path to hellfire to path to Paradise. The second meaning: Leaving a land or country to another due to injustice, instability, and persecution in religion. Allah says: “He who forsakes his home in the cause of Allah, finds in the earth Many a refuge, wide and spacious: Should he die as a refugee from home for Allah and His Messenger, His reward becomes due and sure with Allah: And Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful”. (Nisaa: 100) “Those who believed and those who suffered exile and fought (and strove and struggled) in the path of Allah,- they have the hope of the Mercy of Allah: And Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Baqarah: 218) From this we realized that God made migration a sufficient relief and medication for the Muslims in order to be safe from all that God has forbidden and from all forms of error and darkness of ignorance. May Allah benefit us with the Qur'aan and the guidance of prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. May He guide us to the Straight Path and protect us from the path of dwellers of hell. I say this, and ask forgiveness of God for me and you and the other Muslims from all guilt and sins, do seek His forgiveness, He is Most Forgiving, Merciful. Second Sermon Praise be to Allah, The Guide to the straight path. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and I bear witness that the Prophet Muhammad is His slave and Messenger, May God bless and invoke His peace upon our Prophet Muhammad, the envoy of mercy to the worlds, and upon his family and companions, and whoever follow his guidance till the Day of Judgment. O slaves of Allah, fear Allah Almighty in the right proportion of piety, and be committed to His obedience and pleasure. Muslim brothers and sisters! You are in the month of Muharram, one of the four sacred months which are: Dhul- Qa’dah, Dhul-Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab. This month possesses certain virtues which are not found in other months. Among these is the virtue of fasting in it. Abu Hurairah narrated that The Messenger of Allah said: ((the best fasting after the month of Ramadan is in the month of Allah, Muharram, and the best prayer after the obligatory ones is the night prayer)) Among the specialties of this month is the virtue of fasting on the day of 'Ashura, the tenth day of Muharram. In the Sound collections, A'isha (R.A) said: (Ashura used to be a day the Quraish observed for fast during the days of Ignorance and the Prophet did fast in it. When he entered the city of Madinah he fasted it and ordered people to fast the day, however, when Ramadan was made obligatory, he fasted it and left the day of Ashura, thus whoever will could observe it and whoever wish otherwise could break it) Ibn Abbas said: When the Messenger of Allah reached Madinah, he found the Jews fasting on the day of Ashura, Messenger of Allah said to them: ((What is this day you fast in? They said: This is a great day when Allaah saved Musa and his people and drowned Pharaoh and his people so Musa fasted as gratitude to Allah and we used to fast on that day, the Messenger of Allah said: We possess more right to Musa than you, so the messenger of Allah fasted and ordered people to observe its fast)) Salamah ibn al-Akwa narrated that the Prophet peace be upon him: ((ordered a man of Aslam to make a call to people thus- “whoever have eaten should fast the rest of the day and whoever have not eaten, let him fast, for today is the day of Ashura. )) Abu Qatada related, a man asked the Prophet about fasting on Ashura, he said: ((I hope God will expiate the sins of a year before it)) "Muslim". Ibn Abbas said: The Messenger of Allah said: ((If I live until next year I will certainly fast the ninth with the tenth meaning Ashura)) "Muslim" being different to the Jews. Strive to fast other day in the month beyond the Ashura, such as Mondays and Thursday, 13th, 14th and 15th days of the month. Strive to increase yourself in good deeds as a provision you put forward for your soul for tomorrow. Allah says: “Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it!, And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it”. (Zalzalah: 7 - 8). Be prepared to profit yourself from this life for you may not know if the night comes over your whether you will live to see the approaching dawn. O Muslims, remember your Muslim brothers in Gaza and Palestine in your prayers because the Israeli occupation authorities feel not satisfied with the advances of its army, from the invasion of towns and villages, the killing of innocent people and the siege imposed on the rest of Palestinian land, and terrorizing peaceful citizens with home demolition and leveling of the lands. Since 1948, Palestinians have been subjected to continuous Israeli terrorism, hundreds of villages were ruined and wiped completely off the map, tens of thousands of homes destroyed and bombed, tens of thousands of men, women and children were exterminated, thousands became stricken with blindness, paralysis, disability and complete deformation, tens of thousands were arrested and tortured in order to eliminate the Palestinian resistance which have been challenging the Israeli occupation. The Zionist entity fearlessly and brutally bombed women and children through the use of tanks, helicopters and even fighter jets to drop bombs and firing rockets into the heart of residential neighborhoods with all it contains including thousands of children and women. These weapons cannot distinguish between the so-called terrorists and a little child of eight month old, these weapons murdered young children and civilians haphazardly. The Zionist entity attacked the homes of the families of activists of the Palestinian resistance movements in the Gaza Strip with tanks, bombs, missiles, and Israeli bulldozers destroyed their homes and displaced their families while thousands of homes have been destroyed in this manner. O Allah be with our Muslim brothers in Palestine, assist them over their enemies, provide them security in their homes, drive away the Jews submissively and dejected from the land of Palestine and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, O Lord of the Worlds.
