la cama de novo come by la hora Sula, who has 1000 agreement about
during the times that we're living in right now, where Islam has come to come to the forefront. So the most important for us to learn our Deen and the reason why we need to learn our DNS because we have to defend.
We have to convey the message of La ilaha illAllah. And you're going to have people who will
speak against the Sunnah, and against the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And unfortunately, sometimes it's not not all, not only do you have to defend the, the authority of the sun, or the sun, or Islam, but also the authority of the son of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam also, even amongst Muslims, so this is, these are difficult times that we are actually living in right now. But as I mentioned, you cannot defend anything or anyone if you don't know who the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam was, and that's why it's a it's very, very important for us to learn. The
seer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and learn to love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and increase our belief by seeking that knowledge through seeking that knowledge and it's through defending the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that Allah Subhana Allah increases our belief and increases our email also. And, and that's why the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
the uncle of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Hamza, bin mattala he went, he defended the prophets of Allah isn't even before he accepted Islam. And it was because of that, that Allah subhanho wa Taala guided him to Islam, because of the incident in which he came. And he was informed by a slave girl that belonged to the lineage and that Abuja Hall was
cursing, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. So as a result, he felt this tribal obligation, it was not, it wasn't about
about Laila Hello or anything, he was not Muslim yet. But as a result of that, defending the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala guided him to Islam. And so also another aspect, in defense of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam is also sincerity, you have to defend the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. But do not go out looking for arguments and looking for people to argue against it is not, you're not doing it for personal gain or anything, it's for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, and there are some people who just love, just love to argue, just love to argue and bring forth things like that. And maybe it might cause
controversy, controversy also, at the same time.
You should also
be careful in,
in how you react to certain types of things that are done like some people drawing cartoons or doing this and doing that it should not, it should not push you to do anything irrational. It might be something that's very, very bad, but you should not cause more harm. It should not be something that you do that cause that might cause more harm for the Muslims. And that's why the Messenger of Allah Sutherland ism himself in the time in Mecca, when many of the companions when the companions were being tortured.
When the companions were being tortured amongst them Bilal and sumaiya, and yes if they were being tortured and the prophets of the law names and would see this happening in front of his very own eyes. Now, he loved the companions.
He loved the companions. Little did I know he loved them. But he did not resort to violence or anything that would harm the dour at that time. Because if he were to,
let's say, in the case, when omega omega
was torturing, torturing the family of the acid, he could have easily went in and physically prevented, because he was strong. He was very strong. If he punched him, he probably would have knocked him out. But he didn't resort to that. Why. And what did he say to them? He went by and he said, sobre sobre, las fitna, moda, Kemal Jana page, OPEC Be patient.
A family of four indeed you are appointed time and place is paradise is gender. And so it's all them to be patient.
And this happened during the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. But he did not resort he did not, it did not make him act irrational. So there will be things that will be said against Islam, and things that will be done. But at the same time, you always have to be in connection with the scholars on how we should be on what method and what you should use, to defend,
to defend the honor the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And sometimes,
as a result of some of the things that are happening, sometimes it brings form, it brings Islam to the forefront. And so even though, even though you might think something, that there's something, you know, there's certain attacks that are very bad, and so forth, but Allah subhanho wa Taala also has a plan, remember a couple of months ago, that
pasture that was in Florida, he was burning the Koran while he wanted to burn the Koran, right? And what did he actually do? What did he actually do when all of this was in the news,
if you were to go on Amazon, and try to order the order, and they had run out,
like they were trying to print so much more, and so it brought the Quran to the forefront. And so you know, it's somebody trying to make a mockery of the poor under the sun and so forth, you should try to act in a positive way to convey this message without causing more harm to the, to the Muslims, because if we act irrationally, it might cause us it might cause our schools or massages and so forth to be to be closed, and that would cause a greater harm upon the Muslims. So if something like that were to happen, what would we What should we do, like if somebody is writing or, you know, making fun of the message of a loss of the line isn't in the newspapers or magazines and
so forth, you should defend the honor of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but at the same time, do it correctly. When these things come to the forefront. It's an opportunity for us to teach people about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam with some of these things come to the forefront it's an opportunity for us to to raise the awareness and teach people what the Quran is, and what the message the true message of the Quran really is. Because people now become curious. And so that's why like, for example, in Seattle, and other places the United States, we started to, when we when we heard that news, we immediately what do we do as a community we start to collect money to collect money so that
we can buy more for us. And then for every we decided that every month, every poor and that he was going to burn we're going to give away 1000
at least 1000 our community like you know the king, every quarter we decided to give at least you know 1000 and you give that out let's say to the masjid and say okay, listen brother after Juma you give it to the Muslim give to the Muslims so that they get to their neighbors if you have a responsibility, give this to your neighbors give this to your co workers and now it's in the forefront and so when you're giving something to the poor and nobody's gonna say Oh, it's this is you know what? You might remember this guy was trying to burn the Koran. I want you to read it. I want you to read the message in the Quran you think it deserves be burnt read it and so now he's
curious and he's gonna read it otherwise normal case he's probably gonna be Harry Potter instead, right? What any other any any other book but since it's in the forefront, take advantage of that. And act. Make make it push you to act positively to convey the message.
Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasulullah. And so, as I mentioned, also, you're going to meet people also who are going to ask you about this and that. So it's very important for us to learn our Deen. In order for us. If we love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have to defend the Messenger of Allah, because he's more beloved to us, then even ourselves. That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, that you may know how to come Hector, you barely know how to cook Hakuna LA, meanwhile, he will, he will message me.
None of you truly believes unless he loves me more than his, his parents and his children or his his son or his children, and all of the people. And that also includes ourselves. And so if somebody were to write something about our mothers or defame our mothers or with what would we do? We would definitely try to do our very best to defend our, our family, especially when it comes to our mothers Wait, if it's somebody whom we love more than our mothers, but at the same time, you have to also
act irrational, don't act irrationally don't cause more harm for the Muslims as the results of your emotions don't act based upon emotions, but act based upon knowledge and act based and also consult with those of knowledge and those who have experience and if you don't do so, most people who the things that lead them to go astray as are because they are not acting upon knowledge but acting upon their emotions only, which is identified inshallah I'll hand it the
time to our chef, Busan.
Miss Milan Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah
Starbuck defending the nebby and Mustafa Alamo
and occupant harsh sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is one of the most important and pressing issues that
we're faced with today.
There are virtues connected to it if you don't feel a need to do it. Then again, there's something wrong with your Eman. There's something wrong with your Eman. Again, you have to be balanced. You can't be a person who says it's not my problem. A lot mentioned in milk or on wall law Who ya similkameen and ness. Allah is going to divinely protect you from the people. Yeah, Mohammed. You can say like, the people of Mecca said when abraha was going to destroy the Kaaba. They said the Lord of the Kaaba is protecting the cat I'm getting out of here. You can say Allah is going to protect him as he mentioned not my problem. No Can you be on the other extreme. The other extreme is
the person who wants to defend the Nabi sallallahu wasallam by hook or crook by any means necessary. He wants to defend the nibi with the Sunnah, or with beta. He wants to defend the nebby with authentic hadith or weak Hadith. He wants to defend the NIMBYs a lot when he was sending them with schicke obita.
The important thing for him is I just have to do it. Whether I create a bigger fitna is irrelevant. I just have to do something. Both of those are extremes. Every Muslim has the responsibility man and woman to defend our nebia Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Quran is replete with is that guide to this from the virtues is that a lot took this as a covenant with all of the prophets and all of the messengers of Salatu lowest sin mo and he
was after the La humi fap and nibi Lemma to come minkee tabin were hickmott from a camera soon, Musa De Lima accom the 2 million maybe what I
call a cartoon to maridadi is three call to a Corona Kala shadow when Anima akumina shahidi.
Remember when a lot took a covenant out from all of the schools from North all the way to Pisa. Allah took every prophet and messenger and said
after I've given you the book, and I gave you your son, man I sent you if it comes to you the Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam confirming what you have. You have to believe in Him and you have to help him. Do you take that as binding upon you? every prophet every message you say yes, I accept is binding. I believe in him and I'll defend him. A lot of said bear witness for barely I'm from those who be witness. So from the virtue of
of defending the Navy is that all of the profits and all of the messengers, they were ready to defend the Navy Salalah what he was saying. So you and I, we have to defend the Navy. But we have to defend the Navy according to our ability. If you are a man, if you're a woman, if you're young, if you're a handicap, and what was collected by
there was a companion who was blind and he couldn't see. He had a slave girl, not his wife, a slave girl. And the slave girl used to say bad things about the Navy and the man was blind. And he loved that slave girl, because of the benefit that he received from her. He kept wanting honey kept saying, Hey, lady, hey, you better stop. He kept wanting, and she would just keep saying bad things because she thought her relationship with him would protect her from any harm. One day, the man couldn't take it anymore. He knocked it down. He got on top of her. He took an axe and he split her head open with that axe. The news went to the nebby this man killed the woman this man killed the
woman. The man came he told the Prophet what happens on the law. Why do we suddenly the Navy said to that man, and the people allow in a demo ha ha
ha blood is allowed to spilled to be spilled.
So that goes to show a number of things. And I don't have the time to get into the details of that. But one thing I don't want you to misunderstand.
We talked about elbow Harada his mother, Kirsten, the nebby. Abu huraira then split his mother's head. So it doesn't mean you go split in people's head. But in this case, this was the man's slave and the man was handicapped. And that didn't exonerate him from being responsible for defending the Navy. handicapped. He has special needs.
Even the woman who's young, the Navy Salalah it was sin was praying in Mecca. When the Muslims were weak, and they didn't have any power he made such that the Kaabah some of the kofod Quraysh. They took some dedication of the animal, they just came out of the bowels of the animal. Doo doo poo. They took the dedication and they put it on his back when he was praying. It was when anybody put doodoo on me with this white dog. I'm gonna deal with him. They put it on the nibi he came up Abu Bakar he was sitting there Earth man was there the companions with the Kaaba, not a single person got up, not a single person. And they love the Navy. And they were stronger than the men. But he
taught them while you're in Mecca. Take it Take it easy. If you get up, these kuffar gonna come they're gonna kill you kill you kill you kill you, and they're gonna kill you, your families and your women. Take it easy.
fought the McCain rod the law and she cleaned it off of the nebby she took it off with his back. And then she said to the co founder of Quraysh a tuck to Luna Rosalyn
and your pool Robbie Allah Do you people fight against the man and Harmon man because he says My Lord has a lot. He didn't harm you. He didn't do anything to you. So she defended the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with her kelang
pay attention. None of the other companions got up. None of the other companions did anything, because then they'd be trained them at this time in Mecca. When a hostile environment. Take it easy. The only one who defended him was the little girl which goes to show no one is exempt from defending the Navy so colossal, handicap man woman, but you have to defend them according to you ability. Some Jews came by the Navy Salalah it was similar. And they said to them a Somali gang Mohammed Assam alaikum Salaam Aleykum Selam Aleykum poison be unto you, may you die, then it'd be heard what they said. He said Why leave
our mother if she was sitting there? And she heard him understood. She said to them
was someone who will learn
May the curse of Allah be upon you, you descend this a pigs and monkeys.
Then the bee says hey, I wish Ayesha Ayesha riffin Take it easy.
she defended him by McAfee defending them made me Amaterasu you monkeys you pigs in Ibiza. Hey, hey, take it easy.
She said, Did you hear what they said? He said yes. I heard what they said. Didn't you hear what I said? I said back to them. Whatever you said to me back to you. She defended him. But she didn't defend him in a way that he was satisfied with and that was legislated.
He told her that in the law you have bereft Phil amor de la likes for Jean Tunis to be used in everything is not the time for you to deal with the situation like that last example and there are just too many examples. There was a man who used to be a companion. Not only that, he was one of the few people who knew how to read and write, and he used to write the revelation. He memorized sort of the bacara He memorized sort of early Emraan. He memorized sort of to me said he memorized sorta to Nikita and he used to write the revelation. He a past stated and he left the religion. He went to the Christians and he became a Christian. He told those Christians, you know, this poor on this
Quran has been rebuilt on Mohammed. He said, I'm the one who made it all up, hominids, Lion. A lot. Mohammed is Mayan. That man was riding his horse. One day, he got off of his horse, hey, his horse, kicked them in his head, kicked them in his head and killed him. Allah defended the Nabhi using the horse from the genu de la. Those people buried that man. The next day they came, his body was on the outside of the grief. They said look how upset Mohammed is look at his companions that the men have passed, stated and they dug up his body. And
they dug him deeper, put them deeper. The next morning, his body was outside of the Green Day. So Mohammed, his companions. so upset with this man. They've done it a third time deeper, and they put semen on it. And they cause some people to stay there during the nighttime. Those people went to sleep side of the body. They came in the morning, the man's body was outside of the grave. Those people who were his companion said, this is not from Mohammed in his companions. This is a miracle. And they believed in Islam as a result of that.
The horse defended the Navy Salalah while he was setting the ground, the thing did the Navy it didn't want the body of that beef to allow. How is it possible for the Muslim man Muslim girl? We say we believe in a law we love them to be sola Salam and we feel we don't have a responsibility to many examples. Lastly,
Allah told us in meanie is in tongue sotto voce nassarawa is a gradual levena cathodal Fanny if name is Kumar filha if you people don't want to defend him if you don't want to help him, they know Allah helped him a lot. I hope Tim when the non Muslims expelled him and kicked him out of Mecca when he was one of two in the cave. Allah doesn't need us to help him. Allah doesn't need us and if you don't help them, that's our problem. It doesn't help it doesn't harm him doesn't harm Islam doesn't harm the newbie. So a lot of what he was saying, yeah your
main your main common D for so forget de la be combing your home, when you have
a villa to narrow meaning canal carefully in uj he doing a feasibility whether you have funa Loma tele or you believe if any of you leave this religion and you apostate,
this is a threat from Allah, if any of you leave this religion and you will pass it, then Verily Allah is going to bring a group of people, he loves them, and they're going to love Allah. They're going to be people who will fight for the religion of Allah, they make jihad, the proper jihad.
They'll fight for this religion, and they don't care about the censorship and the complaints of anyone. So the point of all of that is whether we accept this challenge in this responsibility, whether we accept it or we don't accept it is really irrelevant, because in the final analysis, allows what gel is responsible for the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they will always be a group of people who will be victorious on the truth and they'll be there to defend the Namibian asked Eliza Joe, to make us all from those individuals, the Forgotten Nigeria that these people will always show the the responsibility of defending him, but defending him with the rules and
regulations of Islam, not defending him by any means necessary. not defending him by hook or crook, not defending him by sheer can cover not defending him sallallahu alayhi wasallam with what Allah legislate where I come from, we have a group of people. They love the nibi they love him. But how do they love him? If you tell them that nibi is a human being a bishop? He's not created from the note of Allah, the Nabi Dai sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Navy of Islam.
does not know the end mill hate rasuna laws not how's that nozzle? omnipresent he's with us. He's in Japan is in Chinese in New York is in Mogadishu. He's in Hawaii everywhere simultaneously. If you tell them no, he'll become upset and he thinks defending the Navy is to hate you and to fight against you because you believe in what is established in the Quran and Sunnah. Is that defending the nebby?
He makes up Hadith that a week. When you hear them say I shadow Mohammed Rasul Allah, take your thumbs kiss him and do like that.
If you do that, you'll never go blind. You tell him Yeah, there's no proof of that. He'll say, Oh, you don't love the Navy? I love the Navy. Based upon this fabricated Heidi. No, that's not defending the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam
lo laka laka Mashallah. flaca If it wasn't for you, yeah, Mohammed, I wouldn't have created the whole creation. So he loves them maybe so he believes that kind of stuff. And the Irish of Allah La ilaha illAllah. Muhammad Rasul Allah. No, those are Hadith are not authentic. Don't go overboard. And when people correct you about these issues, defending the Navy and loving him, is not you becoming abstinent and arrogant and fighting against that which is not supported in the beam. So again, we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us from the inside of a levels panel and the inside of the center. Those people who love Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa Taala it was said, I gotta make
this last point acquainting for the young brothers here, little guys like this. That was a companion when they were fighting in the Battle of better the first war of Islam. Two brothers was one of his name was more and as his brother was more Eve, they came to Abdurahman live an hour before the war. They said Where is Abu Jamal before the war, they were young. Where is Abu Jamal
Abdullah bin al said, What do you want with Abu Jamal? What do you want with him? He said, Well, we're gonna kill him because he used to curse and Mustafa Al Habib, he was shocked little boys. They weren't concerned about PlayStation. They weren't concerned about this stuff.
He said that's Abu gehele over there. And Abu Jamal quani he was a cafe but Abuja who was a man he was no joke. He was a serious personality. I don't know any personality today in this dunya. The way Abu Jamal was with the Arabs. That man had some position.
There he is right over there.
Man even outside, they disregarded everyone else in the war. And they just ran to Abidjan.
When they pounced on him. After a man even outside, they jumped on him as if they were to baby lion cubs, and they cut him up Abuja. He was killed by these two young boys at the Battle of better after the war. Both of them came to the Navy and they were arguing with each other. One brother said I killed him. The other one said no, I killed them. They almost said no. I killed them back and forth. The Prophet told these little guys. Rob do Allahu anhu I'ma show me your swords. They pulled the sword out. Both of them had blood on him. The Prophet said both of you killed them. You can have his stuff. You can have his spear you have his saddle. You have his horse. You have all of that stuff.
Little kids, they fill in the Navy solid with some take one of our kids today 14 1516 Hey, come the Finn the Navy selasa he's not China, he then I want the latest PlayStation. I want to leave this Xbox. I wanted. And I don't make those things wrong. I'm just saying again, defending the Navy and knowing our priorities is more important. Lastly, may Allah make us of the unsubtle sooner and then saw the light switch
the advice so we'll get right into the q&a session.
We're going to keep it on the topic of defending the profits that allows them so only send questions that are in this topic. So first question.
Does boycotting certain products from certain countries or products from certain countries? Does that count as defending the profits are allowed to send
certain boycotting products that come from Israel and so forth and so on.
If you want to boycott up de la amatola you go ahead and do boycott
but do not do not
Put that upon the Muslims don't do that. Don't do that.
And that's because you're not qualified to put that responsibility on the Muslims. A prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if it wasn't for the children and the women, I would get someone to leave the salon have unfettered. And I will go with the young men who are praying, and I'll go and burn the homes down of the people who don't come to the masjid, the grown men.
But because they were women and children in those homes, he didn't do it. He didn't do it. He took into consideration and he considered there was some people from the Muslims who are doing some wrong and in burning their homes down. There's some benefit in that showing them the importance of praying and the message and the danger of not praying, but have you burnt those homes down? Innocent people would have been affected in the process.
So when you tell people boycott this boycott that boycott this, there are some people from the community who need those things. There are people from the community who benefit from those things. So you can't put that on people. You do it yourself.
Call men Hara Rama, Xena, tala Letty Raja Abadi what by the bathroom in a risk called Hillel Edina Amman affiliated dunya harissa Tang yo mo qiyamah. say to them yeah, Mohammed, who is it that has the nerve and the audacity to make the good things that Allah has made Hello from the Taliban? Who makes it wrong? Tell them these things are for
Allah burden for for the people there for everyone in the dunya. But therefore, the believers solely Yokoyama. Last point that I want to make about that is that people will do this boycott, and they're not fair. And then I just when you boycott products from Israel, a lot of things that we use every day
that come from Israel, and so forth, and so on, why stop at the dates and issues like that? Why stop at that? There are many things that come from that place. We're not the people who have that ability, so you should avoid that. And then they always make her on things that we like, Don't drink Mountain Dew, wine come from the Jews.
Why Mountain Dew? with that? And people make up things. Don't buy Tommy Hilfiger why he was on Oprah Winfrey. And he told them, I don't care about the Muslims. This is lies people make up. So it's an issue that is not for everybody, anyone to talk about? Do it yourself. And don't put that on the other people.
Does that look good? I just wanted to add one. One thing, sometimes there's a lot of
emails and things out on the internet that are passed around and
all over the place, and it just sometimes spreads like wildfire. wildfire.
We should be very, very careful when it comes to some of these things that are going around specifically, you know, if you're mentioning What about boycotting some people are boycotting this and boycotting that review, if you really look and maybe, you know, if you're really looking at it
from an objective point of view, I mean, every almost all these products are connected one way to another to to each other all the time. So I mean, what alternatives are you going to have at the end, you're not going to be eating anything anyways, you wouldn't at the end, you're, you're going to be leaving this country, you're not going to you're just going to be a hermit somewhere in the corner
of the world or somewhere. And so stick with the people of knowledge. And also
we have to realize that with
anything, I mean, if you're going to do it yourself, right, you have to differentiate between a lot of inertia. Even if you you're gonna consciously do something, you know, avoid something just out of your own consciousness. Don't make that, as Jeff mentioned how to differentiate between a shout out the city itself, and the Hello, Ron and your own consciousness and Willow Tyler.
Another question, how do we defend him in areas of his life, when we don't know when we don't have much knowledge about that certain aspect.
When somebody attacks the prophet SAW a lot,
and we don't know what to say, but
it's about a specific issue.
As I mentioned before, I said we really have to, first of all, you have to realize that learning the spirit of the prophets of Allah and the life of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam is incumbent upon all of us we have to learn. We have to seek knowledge and part of that knowledge is learning in order for us to be truly be obedient to Allah and His messenger. We have to know what those orders are and we have to know the life of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also how he used to live in and so forth? One, one point I would like to make that's related to this question is that there are certain things that a person will attack concerning certain aspects of the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And you know, you might be able to defend certain points, and you might spend a lot of time doing it. But you have to realize that you're the purpose of the Dawa is to call people to La Ilaha Illa, you have to understand that that is the prime
point that we should call people to some you might be able to, you might speak to your friend, or someone who was asking about, for example,
the position or the status of woman why they're wearing hijab, and for two weeks, maybe two or three weeks, you are giving them
logical proofs. And at the end, they might be convinced, yes, they might be convinced about that particular point, but you just wasted that time, and you didn't spend your time to call them to Laila Allah, Muhammad Rasulullah. And so what's the first thing that we should do? You know, when when, when there are certain points that others are attacking us sometimes? First of all, let's say if somebody's speaking about the hijab, why, first of all, the first thing you should say is because Allah subhana wa Taala ordered me to do something ordered us to do so. And after that, you tell them now do you want to know why I believe this is so so then you then now you have an opportunity to
speak to them about the oneness of Allah and tell them inshallah, later on inshallah, maybe after that, I will get to that point. And then, then you get to that second, the secondary points, but make sure you try to focus on the calling, calling the people to the true message, the message of La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah this was the message of course of all the prophets and messengers of the past awesome.
When people attack you, because
like you said, If you call it happy, if you if you defend it, or you consider yourself defending the Prophet
against, I guess you could say people who innovate in the religion, or those who curse the companions, how, how do you go about defending the Prophet against those who consider themselves defending the Prophet as well?
Again, as I mentioned to you, brothers and sisters earlier the issue of hikma comes in, when we're dealing with these issues, no matter who you're dealing with a person who curses the companions or other than that non Muslim, that hikma.
You have to be able to know what method to utilize. Allah commanded in the Koran odo in a sabini Rebecca bill Hekmati will more edital hacer una vida del Hoon bility hear us call to the way of your law with Hickman sometimes hikma is just leaving the person so that he can see you like full Mama. Sometimes Hickman is taking the sword and going to deal with them. Sometimes Hickman is he's inclined to Islam. He's allowed to give Zakat money he's a Catholic, but he gets a cut. giving them food is from Hickman. Sometimes Hickman is putting him in prison called to the way of the law with hikma sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's tough, and argue with them in a way that's best.
And argue with them in the way that's best and give them a good expectation. So this is the Jin Allahu taala has commanded us in the Quran will not be a lesson or two was too far been Leti hear us?
That lady can have been echo will be no
cut and know who will lead you. I mean, Mama you locka ha in the lead in a Subaru. When you look
in the Havana mean,
the Hassan and the sea, good and bad. They're not equal. They're not equal. Push back with what is best, it fine bility us don't repeat ignorance with ignorance. But push back with what is best between you and your mother, you and your mother in law you and your father, you and your wife. This person is coming at you with aggression. You've given them aggression back is going to cause the problem to exasperate so don't do that. Allah said if you do this, push back with what is better than the one who there is enmity and animosity between you and him if it exists.
Then he's going to become like your bosom buddy, because you dealt with them in a nice way. And no one will be able to do this except those who have been given sub and no one will be able to do this except those people have been given a great portion a great portion of good. So the general rule in principle here is, Al hikma to L hc metal, putting things in their proper place, while odd
question seems from a non Muslim, Can you summarize what is Islam? And what is the Muslim? And how does one a non Muslim go about learning more about the prophet to so they can understand him better? Or Islam
Bismillah salatu salam, ala Sula, Islam is surrendering to the world of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And his Islam is from Islam, and Islam is to be to follow the way in which Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to live to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in the best way possible, according to the way that we have been taught, and so
Islam, anyone who accepts that Allah and Allah meaning anyone who believes and accepts that there is no no one worthy of worship, except the law. So when you say like an ally doesn't mean like, there's, there's no God, but you're saying that La ilaha illAllah. There's no one worthy of worship, because other people have claimed they claim that, of course, there are other gods that others worship also. But those are false deities. And that's a person who accepts Islam or accepts this is a Muslim, they accept that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah. And when it comes to worship, it's envy anything and everything that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with, Allah has
pleased with, so whether it could it could be an internal, an action, internal action, some feelings that you have. So when you love your mother, and when you love people who are righteous and good, this itself also is worship. And so it's not just the acts of prayers, and so forth only, but it's also everything in anything that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you're surrendering you will to be to do that which is pleasing to Allah Subhana in all your actions and all your words and whatever you're doing. And also, you are also accepting that the prophets of Allah, Allah, he was a prophet Mohammed is the final prophet, and messenger. So
what I suggest, you know, if it's a new Muslim, or if someone's thinking about Islam, the first thing you have to realize is, if you want to learn about Islam, learn it as a Muslim. First thing you do is accept La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah, because there are a lot of people sometimes when they're coming to the massage huts,
and they want to learn more about Islam. The first thing you have to realize, first thing you want them to do is to say la ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah. In they might say that, oh, but I'm not. Maybe I'm not ready, I want to learn more. Tell them why don't you learn more as a Muslim?
Learn more as a Muslim, for indeed, once a person, he calls himself a Muslim, or he has accepted that, then it's much easier for them also to learn and there. And so Islam is the surrendering to the will of Allah Subhana to accept that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the final prophet and messenger of Allah.
What would you say to a person?
Or is it a bad thing? if let's say,
some non Muslims,
if some non Muslims on purpose, incite the Muslim or provoke the Muslims, for example, by drawing the prophet or having campaigns on Facebook, such as draw the Prophet Muhammad SAW some day
or certain news channels. Is it a bad thing if somebody just ignores them and pays no attention to them? Because they're just trying to incite the Muslims and just ignore it? Yeah.
In terms of the EBI data on this lamb, worship in LS lamb.
We only can do what we have the ability to do. A lot commanded in the Koran, for top law must be taught to
fear law to the best of your ability. If you have to deal with those people. Do what you have the ability to do, and
But you don't have the ability to deal with natural issue. law you can even from law who naps and loves. Allah won't burden you beyond your scope and beyond your ability.
So when it comes to the issue of giving Dawa, and people like this, Allah told us something in the Quran that's really important guys, about people don't want to listen. He said, for the kill in it.
For the kid in the fighting, Vicar,
remind them, if the remembrance benefits, if the remembrance is going to benefit them, the remainder is going to benefit, then remind them. There's something in Arabic called the love home. And
we understand from this is the opposite. If you don't think that the remainder is going to benefit and you're wasting your time, you're not responsible for reminding
someone who's not going to listen. He has a proven track record. He's not going to listen. It's not your responsibility, the prophets and the messengers, it was their responsibility. No, he had to give down for 950 years, and they wouldn't listen, he had to keep going, then they'd be 23 years he had to keep going. That was his obligation, his will vifa you're not responsible for answering everything on Facebook, and I refund sponsible for every buck and z who has something to say. So if you want to give your information in order to a establish the proof against them, you can do that. If you want to give information and refute and put something out there in order to try to get the
person guidance, you can do that. But if you feel and if you think that that person is not going to benefit. Then Allah mentioned I act in the Koran, who they love, what will be
our nlj Helene
forgive them, pardon them, and tell them to do good things and turn away from the ignorant people. The bad the rat men were either harta bohumil, Jae Hee, Luna carlu, Salama, ignorant people are addressing them, they just say sit on set up, I don't have time to waste their big fish to fry, I'm wasting time with someone who's just trying to have his 60 seconds of fame. So it's not a bad thing, necessarily. And it's not a good thing. It depends on the details, and all of the dynamics and variables that are taking place in that given situation.
me just say so also in the community, what we should do is we should realize that
not everybody is going to be able to or has has the knowledge or ability to defend everything but at the same time, there should be organized, the Muslims should be organized like when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allowed the companions to go to Habesha, they are even though they were in a non Muslim country, they were they still had jabs at him, nobody thought he was the spokesperson. So sometimes the media might come and so forth and ask about certain things, that the community should realize that, you know, you should, you don't have to speak to the media and defending every point because sometimes, that's what they're looking for. They're looking for some
ignorant person, ignorant Muslim here that they put them all over the news. And everywhere you see them on CNN, CBC, whatever it is all over. And he might be saying something that's very ignorant. So that's why the Muslims, we have to be organized, we have to have people, let's say, okay, there, if they come to you, you know, you should point to the people who are in charge, who know how to speak and have the knowledge and speak in a wise way with wisdom, and so forth. And so the Muslims, especially us here, living in the West, living in non Muslim society, we should be organized when it comes to those aspects. Well,
I'm not sure if it's a non Muslim asking this or just a Muslim that wants to know, somebody's asking, how does one become a Muslim?
Somebody is asking how does one embrace Islam? How did they become Muslim? That's an excellent question. And I hope you brothers and sisters really pay attention to this right here. How does a person become a Muslim?
Unfortunately, we think that there has to be some pomp glitter and circumstance, ribbons, drums, in order for a person to become a Muslim, we have to bring them to the masjid in front of everyone. We have to get witnesses.
Do you don't have to do that. Again, if you know someone who wants to become a Muslim, you put a little bit of pressure on them and say, okay, just become a Muslim. Now become a Muslim, and then all of that stuff that you're not sure about deal with it as time comes. Many times they'll say okay, and the Muslims now and you help them to develop if a person wants to become a Muslim
All he has to do is take the Shahada and bear witness the formula. I bear witness. There's no God worthy of worship but a lot and Mohammed is His Messenger. He's a Muslim, even if he didn't say that in front of people.
Even if he didn't say that in front of people, he's a Muslim. And my mistake we used to have this problem unfortunate. I'm a David, I'm given a class in the masjid. I'll come to the masjid not knowing, just to get my class. When I get there. Someone comes to me and say, This guy, he wants to become a Muslim. I say to them, why, why did you wait until that come when till I came, you just give them the Shahada, you, you you you just give them the Shahada, you only one person. You give them the Shahada by yourself. Your two people you took him, he doesn't have to be in front of the whole Masjid. alized region is his Shaheed in his share his Hello sees all of that, Allah, and
that's enough. And that's enough. So I encourage you people, if he does come to the masjid, and you want to know a good formula, to give him dour, then you should tell them if that happens. You say
Hickman Hickman, the brand new spanking new Muslim, he's about to become a Muslim and we say to them, okay, repeat after me. I said do already he's nervous. And we're going to tell him to talk in Arabic, I should do? He said should you actually do? It should do it. And the guy is keep going back and forth. I shadow Allah. Why do you have to give it an Arabic? Tell him in English. I openly bear witness, hopefully bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship, but a lot that there's no God where the worship of Allah. And I bear witness, I'm a witness that Mohammed bin Abdullah is the Messenger of Allah and His Prophet and the seal of the prophets. And I bear witness that Jesus, the
son of Mary is the word of Allah and the spirit from Allah. And I bear witness that the gentleman is true, and the Hellfire is true. And you let them go. You don't have to do that in Arabic. The man is already nervous. He came to the masjid nervous. And now we're going to tell him to speak Arabic.
Tell him in his own language. Why do we have to? We have to start really, we have to start not making things difficult than that'd be used to tell people given our
best Shirou whether to nephew,
yes, siru. Whether to acebo give glad tidings and make things easy for the people. And don't be rough and tough. And don't run the people away. Don't run away with that stuff. That's the way a person becomes a Muslim. Does you win him? He's takes the Shahada, he's your friend. He's a Muslim after that, if he does come to them, Miss j, tell him in English, the Shahada and it's highly recommended that you mentioned all of those things. I mean, is the Messenger of Allah and the seal of the prophets Jesus the Jesus you don't have to say Isa, Jesus is the and so forth on the agenda not and you leave the man like that.
add something also, you know a lot of times you have this
sort of like almost ceremonial
event when somebody accepts Islam and they Mashallah everyone goes to Kabir, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, after that everyone comes and hugs that brother or, you know, amongst the sisters, the sisters, and their Marshal, everyone's very happy. But then after that, they just leave him. You know, it's very, very important. It's important to make Dawa and call people to Islam. But it's just as important to take care of those who have just accepted Islam. Also, these people you have to understand they have made a decision and you know, that decision is not easy for them. Now, their parents are against them, their friends are against them. They might need financial help, they might
need advice, they might need all kinds of things. You have to spend your time to at least assign someone to see you what that brother needs and takes take care of him properly. Allahu Akbar, Allah good, Mashallah. And he's gone. And who does he have? Who's he gonna go back to? Doesn't have you guys don't know his brother. We said, Oh, you're our brother and your sister now. And then after that you leave him to the shelter. And again,
you have to understand it's very important. It's so important to have mcdow as is to take care of those who have just accepted Islam. I know those who have come into Islam. They know what I'm talking about. They know the difficulties it is. And so I want to advise everyone here make sure you take care of the new Muslims the issue of the age of the life
The Prophet atisha while the
the issue concerning the age of the prophets on the laquan, he he lived it he was sending
our scholars past and present
have dealt with this issue
with many comprehensive
answers is out there for anyone to see the issue bahat ambiguous issues that non Muslims have difficulty dealing with they on the internet, easy to deal with easy.
I won't even mention one today. And this one shows the hypocrisy of those people.
The age of Asia, many things can be said.
And that is as a Muslim, as a Muslim.
If I go back to Birmingham, UK,
and my children, I have to call my little ones. As I'm coming down the street or to my house, they're going to come running out, as they always do.
wanting the gifts or whatever I have for them.
If I see anyone, any men coming out of my house,
who is not a Muslim for my wife, it's gonna be problems. I don't care who he is. Her cousin, better not be coming out of my house. Her Sisters has been who's her cousin Burnaby coming out of my house if I'm not there, because we have something to do if people come from far away in their relatives, if I'm not there, there's someone for them to go something to do. No other man better not be coming out of my house when I'm going to my house, but if he said no, Maria. He said no, Maria. If he came out of my house, and it was proven, this is a seven who Marian Am I going to say anything?
And that's because he's a newbie and he's a rustle. If he says no, Marian came out of my house after this trip.
And he told me Abu Abu I marry your daughter, Ottawa. Hi, Lisa, Mary Ottawa. How old is Ottawa? I was five years old. Five.
I'm Marija Dora hafsa I'm married your daughter?
What's her name again?
all of those girls are very young. All of them. I'm going to say when I say okay with me, because that's essential Marian. And I know they're cousins who may marry them one day, your children who may marry them one day, I know that he said we will marry him is a better
prospect for my daughter's than any other human being, because he's an OB nurse. So every Muslim feels that way.
Every Muslim sitting here I'm speaking on your behalf. If someone came and told you, Isa, even though Miriam is here, and he wants to marry your daughter, and she's only 1112 the Muslim is going to say okay, he's essentially Romanian. And that's because as Allah mentioned in the Quran, how we look at the prophets lannoo Federico had them in roughly,
we don't make any distinctions between them. Mohammed did it with Abu Bakr, his daughter, our mother, Ayesha Ravi, Alo and Huma. And if reasonable, Marian were to do it with one of our daughters will be easy with it, because it's a part of our religion to believe all of the prophets in the midst. If a Muslim if a Muslim says in his head or his heart, no, I have a problem with a separate woman. There's something wrong with your Islam.
Obviously, I'm speaking hypothetically, and he's coming back and all of that, but most Muslims who know their religion, they're going to be more than happy. Many of us in this room, we have marital problems. Many of the people in this room have been divorced. Many of the people in this room, the husbands are not giving the women the rights and the women are not doing the right thing and neither.
If a profit or a messenger had the opportunity and the ability to marry a girl in this room, he's going to be the ideal husband. No one's going to be a better candidate for her than the Navy in the Russell.
So we don't have any problem with this. This
is how we look at prophets and messengers, you people, you're the ones who look at the prophets and the messengers with the eye that you look at. How can you marry such a young girl? How? Well that young girl during that time was more mature than some of our girls right now who are 20 and 21 years old. Now I don't condone no one is going to marry my daughter hinder, hinders, 15 hinders not getting married, because she's not ready. My daughter hin big shift comes Abu I want to marry your daughter him. I'm gonna say chef, with all due respect. hynd is not ready. She's a little girl. She's mature, but she's a little girl.
Aisha, during that time was more mature, physically and mentally, then many women today coming from the desert and all of that, but that's not the point. The real point is as Muslims, we don't have any problem with whatever a prophet or a messenger does. They do it because they do it because it's the best thing for the people last thing concerning this prophet in the messenger when he was going to the masjid. And he saw a man outside the man drew a certain square and the man was praying outside in front of everyone and it was time for salah and Gemma, the nebby walk when he got to the masjid that people were praising that men how righteous was the Prophet said, Who from amongst you
will kill that man for me. I will Bukka said I will I will back when to kill him. But the man was in such dire I will book a king back. He said he's essentially the Navy became upset. He said who will kill that man for me. Irma? He said I will start rolling up his sleeve. I will I'll do it. He he when the man was in such that he came back who killed that man for me? And he said I will then they'll be saying you I don't think you're gonna find him. When Ali wait the man was gone. He came into the pub The man is gone. The Prophet tool and he loved the line in the Muslims lol Patel Moo hoo, Locanda overall fitness? And what?
If you would have killed him? He would have been the first fitness in the last fitness, you wouldn't have the fitness of Syria, you wouldn't have the fitness of Somalia, you only had the fitting of Iraq nananananana. Now, as you sit there,
somebody tell me what did that man do that he deserved to be killed?
What did he do?
We don't know what he did.
We don't know. Many of us, we don't know. But as a Muslim as a Muslim, the prophet said that the Hadith is authentic. And what I know I don't know is irrelevant. What I know is that man deserves to be killed.
Because the nebby senate he suggested it.
The fact that I don't know why doesn't constitute me seeing what's going on. That's so pressured. Don't do that. Don't second guess Allah and don't second guess his messenger, we say we hear and we obey, analyze Allah, an alum.
With this, they're asking me to conclude. This is my last
meeting with you guys here. I just want to acknowledge the
efforts of brother Jetmir and his team. And we asked a level of talent to put it in the skills of these brothers and sisters. And we also ask Eliza jello for you, brothers and sisters to be blessed. By your efforts. I think living in Vancouver and in Canada, programs like this, you mothers and fathers have to make a big effort, a big jihad, to bring your kids and your children to be exposed and that day, to beneficial knowledge to be reminded of the religion and so forth and so on. But the message I want to depart with for all of you is just to remain balanced in your religion.
A guy's just be balanced in your religion, love in a balanced way, hate in a balanced way, worship in a balanced way. He balance. Don't talk too much. And don't be a person who never talks. be balanced in your existence in your existence, and you're going to be okay. I actually teach of mine share. What do you think is the most difficult Heidi to practice? He said, I think the most difficult idea to practice is the idea of the newbie, so I settled them in Nellie Rebecca hapa we're Emily alika haka. We're Emily Anika haka.

Some people, they work very hard. They never take a rest or other people sleep all day. They give their bodies right sleep all day, but they don't pray. They don't get their family rights. Stay balance. If everyone who has a right over you give him his right, Allah, the people and yourself. That's my message to you. And again, we hope that we will see and remember this sitting between
ourselves and the day that we meet alone. subhana wa Taala And lastly, I'm asking you guys, please make dua for my mother. Miss Mamie make dua for my mother. In my absence. suparna Coloma will become the carwash
