00:00:22--> 00:00:26

He also has a PhD in history

00:00:30--> 00:00:35

has also served as a teacher in various places such as LA County, Kingston, Jamaica,

00:00:37--> 00:00:40

as well. And he's also traveled with research, you know,

00:00:42--> 00:00:42

a lot

00:00:45--> 00:00:47

of the storage options in Cape Town, South Africa,

00:01:15--> 00:01:15

Russia,

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

Russia,

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

or something.

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

appraisal

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

works,

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

surely a lot.

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

And I bear witness, one

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

last message, we are always constantly send peace and blessings,

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

to his family, to his companions, to all those who caught his weight and establish

00:02:02--> 00:02:03

the danger

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

as to what follows

00:02:12--> 00:02:32

is a great pleasure to be here with you in this city. And I pray that a lot of new successful would you like our Rex would help us to live up to the beautiful principles that have been established by the Creator of the heavens. And we're

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

recently in Cape Town, South Africa, where I'm coming from.

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

I went through a personal reflection.

00:02:44--> 00:02:52

And being in the southern region of Africa, we find ourselves in one of the periphery zones.

00:02:53--> 00:03:06

We are in the deep south. And being in the deep south on the periphery. Many times there are things striking us, that puts us in sort of a frontline position.

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

And just recently,

00:03:10--> 00:03:34

the rain started to pour the cake. And it poured on a level that people never really before lightning was coming up. The cape is known as the Cape of storms. Or in this case, it reached the point where three days 38,000 people in Cape Town were displaced 38,000 people will

00:03:36--> 00:03:46

not reached this level. And the lightning strike, about three in the morning I woke up and the lights flashing outside the rain.

00:03:48--> 00:03:56

And it's one of those situations where it really brings you closer to the reality of how delicate like release,

00:03:57--> 00:04:01

that we could leave this existence, in the twinkling of an eye.

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

So at that point, I thought about the words of the last

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

things that we say I say over and over again.

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

And when those slashes come to you,

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

it brings meaning

00:04:17--> 00:04:27

to words that sometimes appear to be repeated over and over again, I thought about how we often said, quoting from the format,

00:04:31--> 00:04:33

law to party.

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

And

00:04:38--> 00:04:44

we're about tells us what you believe consciousness of fear of law is the way it should be.

00:04:46--> 00:04:50

And do not die except in the state of Islam.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

So if that transition period comes, that we should try our utmost we should ask for love

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Tofino into everything we possibly can, that at the last moment in the transition, that we are in the state of Islam,

00:05:11--> 00:05:16

Islam, we are in this state of submission to the Creator of the heavens.

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

And if this divine formula

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

is showing us what the success will be in the transition.

00:05:29--> 00:05:46

And so, the warning is given the guidance is given that we should in the transition, try to be as close to a lawsuit as possible, because when the person makes that transition is his or her VR has begun.

00:05:48--> 00:05:54

The gentleman has we have the questions will be asked, and a new face in existence.

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

This that is leading us to the major.

00:06:01--> 00:06:11

And that is another great defense that all human beings will have to fit. But there are lots of times Allah is telling us something else about that day.

00:06:12--> 00:06:20

What happened to us contacted and we find the source, because he is telling us about that day. It says

00:06:27--> 00:06:35

that the day will come when your wealth and your children will be of no benefit to you.

00:06:36--> 00:06:43

Except somebody person comes to a lot with PowerPoint savvy

00:06:44--> 00:06:51

with the sound of the past. So suddenly, there is, again, it's another form of

00:06:52--> 00:06:57

so what transition is a form of selling is data.

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

And the other transition is not selected is this

00:07:04--> 00:07:11

study to be settled amicably complete any submission for the Creator.

00:07:13--> 00:07:36

And this is important for us to understand when we look at the present condition of Muslims. And many times we focus on high political issues in Islamic economy and Islamic politics, we need to go back to the source to ourselves, because it begins right inside of the individual.

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

And if we get any message to our children,

00:07:41--> 00:07:47

that message comes in this person is saying do not die, except in a state of Islam

00:07:49--> 00:07:59

is Islam. And the struggle that is going on today in this world is not an ethnic struggle. It's not just a political struggle. But it is a struggle between

00:08:00--> 00:08:04

truth and falsity. morality and immorality

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

is not the cause.

00:08:08--> 00:08:28

And so that submission to the Creator of the heavens and the earth is so important to us and the soundness of the heart. That part isn't innocent. It's a pure and part of this purity of the heart. It comes from a word hyack.

00:08:30--> 00:08:49

This is can be translated as modesty, as shame, humility. The person who has Hyeok is a very modest person at the prophet SAW some of us to talk about his followers and he said there were three people, they were the best at footage. They were the best.

00:08:50--> 00:08:54

If they spoke to you, they would tell you the truth.

00:08:55--> 00:09:01

And if you spoke to them, if you said something to them, they would not accuse you of lying.

00:09:02--> 00:09:04

They would not suspect

00:09:06--> 00:09:06

they will

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

they have a lot of marks.

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

As I mentioned our city manager

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

Robbie Lawler

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

from this group our beta.

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

He

00:09:26--> 00:09:34

is in a separate position he is in a special position with the how they described him as being extremely modest person.

00:09:35--> 00:09:58

Almost we can say the word shy. When we say shy in English today. It's sort of like a weakness. Shy today. Like if they want you in the corporate field particularly if they say look in the eye, you must look him in the eye. You have to speak to to all the people in the office. You can't be an introspective person. You have to come out of yourself.

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

But other VEDA, I offer him

00:10:06--> 00:10:22

modesty for him was not weakness. Although he was extremely humble with Muslims, when the enemies of Allah azza wa jal came with evil approach to believe this, they described him as the sharp side of the sword,

00:10:23--> 00:10:33

it turns into a lot. So, this is not weakness, utility, modesty is not weakness, it is setting limitations,

00:10:34--> 00:10:38

higher your security, it gives health to the body,

00:10:39--> 00:10:46

it gives health to the consciousness, and it gives a special type of character to the individual.

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

The world we are living in today is

00:10:52--> 00:11:05

the programming coming to watch the television, the media, the symbols, science, the sights, the sounds, we are hearing is all breaking down democracy.

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

And the younger generation when

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

they are exposed to with this template,

00:11:13--> 00:11:24

and studies are being done, a person is watching the television over a period of 10 years, they will have seen 1000s of people being brutally killed,

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

they will have probably seen great,

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

they will see things that normal people in the young age are not exposed.

00:11:36--> 00:11:52

But it comes up and starts to form a type of consciousness. And so this is global culture coming at us is breaking down with that modesty. What is it doing is taking us out of a natural state that we have.

00:11:53--> 00:11:59

And taking away that opportunity to leave the earth in a state of self and to meet

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

with a pure, innocent heart.

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

So it is serious.

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

And it comes at us in many different ways.

00:12:12--> 00:12:16

Recently in South Africa, they have a national poll.

00:12:17--> 00:12:28

They went on to the radios. They did a poll and they asked the people of South Africa they said what do you think about legalized prostitution?

00:12:30--> 00:12:38

We want to institute in this country legalized prostitution, and also to allow drugs legalized drugs, what do you think about this?

00:12:40--> 00:12:57

And they were shocked to find out that the response was from the people. And this is not just Muslims, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, traditional religion, of colors. 79% of the people in the country said, No, we are against it.

00:12:59--> 00:13:06

And it was a shock for the people. It was a shock for those programs, who thought they had taken all of our

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

steel, there is something

00:13:09--> 00:13:13

left in the hearts of the people. But they said no.

00:13:14--> 00:13:28

The World Cup is coming. We have to have legalized prostitution in Europe. So we have to say you're not civilized. But 79% of the people in the country said no.

00:13:29--> 00:14:17

And that was the stance that the pollsters are trying to understand. The scholars are trying to understand, but they refuse to look at religion itself. They refuse to connect this with the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala with the revelation through the example of the prophets that has shown people in their cultures, what HIA really is, and what are the limits that people should have when they're creating. What happens in this society and is getting worse and worse, is that by breaking down this morality, by breaking down these limitations, other limitations are also broken to the point where the Postal Service even said,

00:14:18--> 00:14:18

at first

00:14:20--> 00:14:32

you don't care. If you don't have shame, then do what you want us or you're capable of doing anything. So if you're in doubt, you're capable of anything.

00:14:34--> 00:14:49

And so it continues to happen. But now the responses come. And then we were in Cape Town 38,000 people displaced in three days, the rain pouring about when like people did not remember.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

They talked about India and Bangladesh today. They say there is more water pouring down into Bangladesh and India is

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

To add is greater than anything in living memory.

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

This is how we're talking about

00:15:09--> 00:15:17

is the premise local living memory. And that's serious, because people have been recording information for a long time.

00:15:18--> 00:15:23

So it is serious, is something really serious. And

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

it's telling us

00:15:29--> 00:15:29

to shape

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

it next.

00:15:40--> 00:15:54

corruption has appeared on the land and the sea because of what people's hands have earned. And we will make the taste something of what they have done. It's important that they

00:15:56--> 00:15:59

look at this verse, corruption has appeared.

00:16:00--> 00:16:05

When the Sahaba looked at this, there was many interesting opinions that came up about

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

South Africa.

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

What does this mean?

00:16:13--> 00:16:25

Everybody, as the wildlife being destroyed, vegetation being destroyed, even the fish in the ocean, on the decrease, why did this happen?

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

Next, we do better

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

because of the sins of children as

00:16:35--> 00:16:41

for because of transgression, going over the limits, no higher,

00:16:43--> 00:16:49

lower higher levels. And so going over the limits, and because of this, they received the results.

00:16:50--> 00:16:54

And the purpose of some of them even said is what if one party

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

was ripped off eternia

00:17:04--> 00:17:15

interests and usury and fornication and adultery appear amongst for people that they have brought on by themselves that

00:17:17--> 00:17:17

they have grown.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

And so what is happening around us?

00:17:23--> 00:17:28

It is a natural consequence, is not something supernatural.

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

It's a natural.

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

And it's natural.

00:17:36--> 00:17:45

And the issues in this particular issues, the one of interest, and usually the first speaker, you heard how serious this is

00:17:47--> 00:17:50

that we have some sort of way out of this as a nation.

00:17:51--> 00:18:06

And so we should try to the best of our abilities to support any interest free bank or institution, we should look upon this as one of the most important acts

00:18:07--> 00:18:18

because official talk about politics. And as they talk very hard to think about the southern state for the for what they want in this world. If they are interested in usury, they're wasting their time.

00:18:20--> 00:18:24

But the shining here to witness here for us is

00:18:25--> 00:18:29

is the fornication and adultery that's coming in

00:18:30--> 00:18:36

and through this fornication adultery and this is really similar

00:18:38--> 00:18:47

type of system coming into the pool. And we see it happening over and over and over again, when I was growing up in United States

00:18:48--> 00:18:55

and the television show they have television programs, they have one called pilot this may be

00:18:58--> 00:18:58

in

00:18:59--> 00:19:08

a television program, because of the morality of the society they will not allow Lucy and her husband to go there in the same room.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

Because of the box now

00:19:16--> 00:19:20

x x x, you can even come

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

in one mainstream program.

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

And so what is happening, how dangerous this is especially for for the case.

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

Because the boss tells us is wrong.

00:19:38--> 00:19:38

In

00:19:39--> 00:19:39

the show,

00:19:41--> 00:19:57

he said Don't come near fornication and adultery because it is an abomination is a terrible day morality and it will destroy everything in your life. It will destroy everything. ruin your reputation, ruin your family,

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

even your physical health

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

Now we have a prototype in southern Africa, it has reached the point where in parts of South Africa 36% of the population have

00:20:12--> 00:20:12

reached.

00:20:13--> 00:20:20

But they don't want to deal with the real reality of abstention, of knowing who your partner is to have

00:20:21--> 00:20:32

what we know as surety in your relationships, purity in your body, they keep trying to cut this out, this is the essence of the solution.

00:20:33--> 00:20:46

And so the reality going on in front of us, it is you could say many of the scholars are saying today, that the real trouble today, it is not

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

out of the water.

00:20:49--> 00:20:58

It's not just land and limits, or tensional boundaries. What the real struggle is,

00:21:00--> 00:21:06

is the essence of our belief. And our existence is being

00:21:07--> 00:21:14

you could say that in this century, this is a struggle between morality and the

00:21:16--> 00:21:24

basis behind much of what we see in the world. And what does the professor say about his own mission, he said,

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

I have been set in order to the best and

00:21:33--> 00:21:40

just the essence of the messages of love is the character viridis. Again, morality has

00:21:42--> 00:21:48

limitations. That's the essence of what is going on. And when we look at any major struggle,

00:21:50--> 00:21:57

any aspect of our life, we have to go back to this in order to really understand what is going on.

00:21:59--> 00:22:12

In this struggle in this area of corruption in the world, and interesting report came out from the United Nations. Unfortunately, the United Nations has not done well,

00:22:14--> 00:22:19

especially the so called peacekeepers who come into our country and protect everybody.

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

But when it comes to information, sometimes they are right.

00:22:26--> 00:22:48

And they came with a startling report. And this is something that we need to consider the series. They said, This generation is the largest generation in young people between childhood and adult people between 15 and 24 years old. This is the largest generation that has ever existed, ever.

00:22:49--> 00:22:57

It's happening now. And they found that 48% of the world population is under 24 years

00:22:59--> 00:23:17

of this 48% 86% are in the developing countries. This is shocking for us, in Africa, on the African continent, over 60% of the population are under 25 60%. And if we were to take the most

00:23:18--> 00:23:25

out of field, male, female, young old, you'll see that the majority are actually

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

the majority of the station.

00:23:30--> 00:23:32

But what is happening to the issue.

00:23:33--> 00:24:26

And this report, which goes into many aspects, I want to just share with you some of the points that they made as crisis points. They said this five points of crisis. This is interesting, because these are non Muslims. But you can see how this relates to us. Number one, they said violence, that people are growing up in an atmosphere of violence. And we know that it's not just physical in many of our countries. And we know this because of the terrorist unleashed against us. People growing up with this violence all around, but it's also psychological is visual maps, from the television and the media, to the erosion of traditional balance. This is an interesting point that the traditional

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

balance morality

00:24:29--> 00:24:30

is deteriorating.

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

Is your birthday right in front of the eyes of the society? So young people What is it?

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

What is it that the heroes are Ross hustlers, common man? lowlife, these are the role models of the younger generation today. So these are crisis points right across the board, not just Muslims, but it is really hitting us. And I have found it was it now being in London

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

In the village area, I don't know about Manchester, but in London now, the street gangs, the Muslim street gangs.

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

I don't know about that just because you're very nice to like

00:25:16--> 00:25:27

people are involved in drug taking in game betting is happening right now Muslims. So the whole society is going through this change.

00:25:28--> 00:25:31

Number three of the crisis points is,

00:25:33--> 00:25:33

is,

00:25:34--> 00:25:48

especially in the developing countries. Number four disease is a crisis points for the people coming into the world. There are diseases moving around now amongst people that we never knew about.

00:25:50--> 00:25:55

And number five, crisis points for the youth drugs,

00:25:56--> 00:25:59

the proliferation of drugs in our society,

00:26:00--> 00:26:07

and South Africa, we are facing it directly because it is the major trafficking point for drugs in the world. Right.

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

So

00:26:12--> 00:26:21

from these crisis points, they have a number of action is one of the action areas I wanted to focus on today. Because there's another aspect of,

00:26:23--> 00:26:32

of the corruption in our look at sort of proof. And that action point is that humanity needs to do something about the fact

00:26:34--> 00:26:42

that this environment is actually tied in with the societies, you cannot separate

00:26:43--> 00:26:58

the environment itself, what's happening in the Empire, with the political systems in our societies, you can't separate with the division of wealth amongst it, because poverty is involved.

00:26:59--> 00:27:07

Just like poverty, and malnutrition is part of HIV AIDS, the breaking down of the immune system. And so

00:27:08--> 00:27:19

statistics coming to us are showing us that 20% of the people in the developing world account for 86% of the consumption

00:27:20--> 00:27:27

86% of the consumption of natural resources is in the development.

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

Only 20% of robotics.

00:27:32--> 00:27:39

In a few years ago, they said the meat that they feed dogs in the UK, for feed the whole water,

00:27:41--> 00:27:41

the meat,

00:27:44--> 00:27:57

that separation, that injustice, in wealth, has an impact of everything. So what that means is that the 80% of the people, they only consume 14%.

00:27:59--> 00:28:17

And they also the poorest 20% 20% of the world's population only consumes 1.3% of the resources. This is injustice, this is crap. But also what comes out

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

is the misuse of technology.

00:28:22--> 00:28:41

So pollution of the land and the sea pollution of the air pollution of the seas, destruction of the environment, cutting down with the trees. Now, it's all over the place. And because of this, we see the results pouring down on us.

00:28:43--> 00:28:46

In Canada, we have what they call acid rain,

00:28:48--> 00:28:57

and an acid rain. Because of the pollution in the atmosphere when it rains out on some occasions, there is acid inside of the ring.

00:28:58--> 00:29:05

So the ring which is supposed to be a mercy for humanity and for the earth is a punch. It's actually poison.

00:29:07--> 00:29:27

So this is telling us corruption has appeared on the land and the sea because of what humanities candidates have heard and we will make them taste something of what they have done in terms of we will make a taste

00:29:28--> 00:29:31

and we are really tasting it now.

00:29:32--> 00:29:40

In the atmosphere, breathing invoices, drinking water that's polluted. And then we try to make the

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

animals now carrying viruses

00:29:46--> 00:29:48

without to the UK

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

addition of Muslims was never meant to be only to stay inside of the castle. It was

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

Now only to be to keep Islam to ourselves, but to take it out to the world because we get this guy in the suit of the Council. So we have gems of wisdom, we have solutions to these problems.

00:30:14--> 00:30:17

And so, we need to

00:30:19--> 00:30:23

look on an individual level, what can we do in this job?

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

Now before we should come closer to a loss,

00:30:28--> 00:30:43

we need to make that connection with the roof of the last straw to form a relationship with Allah azza wa jal. So we are aware of the Creator, not just in the masjid, but outside.

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

How do we ask?

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

Do we act like nice polite people in the masjid?

00:30:51--> 00:30:56

And then outside something different? You remember 10 years ago, what we used to talk about.

00:30:58--> 00:31:01

And you see him in our in the marketplace below is

00:31:02--> 00:31:04

his character has changed.

00:31:06--> 00:31:07

He is

00:31:10--> 00:31:10

Who is it?

00:31:15--> 00:31:20

And it changes not just this business guy, sometimes character changes. It's like a hypocrite.

00:31:22--> 00:31:33

And so needs to be fluid and consistent inside the masjid and outside the same modesty we have lowering the gays in the masjid. It should be outside to

00:31:35--> 00:31:42

the same goes off in this Masjid. Everybody's reading a lot. But yeah, that goes off and we're in the soup.

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

And people said, Well, I have to

00:31:46--> 00:31:47

get home

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

altogether, and alone can be a challenge, right?

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

That's what some of us say.

00:31:56--> 00:32:02

What do we do how close we are to meeting a lot, we will do that a lot, even if people are looking at us.

00:32:04--> 00:32:16

So it needs to be consistent. Our relationship with Allah azza wa jal needs to be consistent. And the sooner we get to the sooner and the sooner is not just to recap

00:32:18--> 00:32:33

is summed up in our Greek grammar, that is how we deal with each other, that is a part of the suta that we are getting. We want the rituals, but what about the character? How do we deal with people and not just Muslims? How do we deal with

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

this part of the character

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

which always came through all the way through the drama?

00:32:42--> 00:32:51

And so the sooner you didn't see what we're talking about now, Muslims need to see what is similar

00:32:52--> 00:32:57

between ourselves don't look at another Muslim What's the difference?

00:32:59--> 00:33:12

Because there's a lot similar between us and sometimes only a small difference between one another and they enlarge in the small difference and then look at the person that does not even

00:33:14--> 00:33:17

need to talk this is kept looking at the people.

00:33:19--> 00:33:41

So working unity, let us unite in action programs, doing something for the environment, or the individual level, people are talking about an individual level, we can even begin in terms of our own self, you know, reduce our waste, carbon dioxide,

00:33:42--> 00:33:50

reduce our footprints, as they say, in this world. Do something, reuse this, reuse it.

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

Okay? Also,

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

we need to recycle to learn how to recycle.

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

We make a lot of waste

00:34:02--> 00:34:17

programs, and you will see most of our food, but many times we're killing our bodies and killing the environments that they have. And they eat the food and they look and they say number two the syrup and the meat is floating in oil.

00:34:19--> 00:34:24

And we put all the oil inside of our bodies that are thirsty and coke class

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

of Coca Cola

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

and I treat my phone. You know that Coke is 20 of

00:34:33--> 00:34:33

the chemicals.

00:34:41--> 00:34:44

Check out Coca Cola represents

00:34:46--> 00:34:50

and you'll see a Philistine that wouldn't drink in that coke. You're bombing a child.

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

You cannot separate what is going on in the environment and in the politics of this world.

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

So, as always, we need to assume our role and what the program is talking about.

00:35:09--> 00:35:13

And it's not just in a political sense, people want to

00:35:14--> 00:35:18

have a stake of the political system, which is ultimately necessary.

00:35:19--> 00:35:35

But we need to move first in the essence of belief, which is representative of the loss of power on this earth, which means that we have to tread lightly in the world and take our responsibilities. The real power,

00:35:36--> 00:35:44

the real common to a lot coming out of ourselves is providing Islamic solutions to real problems

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

that affect societies, we spend too much time arguing over trivial.

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

We argue over the main issues.

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

We have a minor things

00:36:00--> 00:36:00

separate.

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

And you don't

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

know the process of setting some

00:36:10--> 00:36:13

credit to CP trade. So anybody that says,

00:36:15--> 00:36:15

you're printing, and

00:36:18--> 00:36:19

so my biggest reason

00:36:20--> 00:36:38

and so to take that position to assume that position as the felipa to provide gems, we are carrying solutions to the HIV AIDS crisis solutions, two basic solutions to political pressure, economic progress,

00:36:39--> 00:36:47

and solutions to the environmental crisis. They'll also give us the strength to change our lives,

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

strengthens our relationship with him and make us stronger.

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

Protect the women and children of the

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

law protect the men of the

00:37:03--> 00:37:04

male already

00:37:05--> 00:37:08

in this world leader will take our misguided

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

for darkness

00:37:12--> 00:37:15

will help us to be of those who will die.

00:37:29--> 00:37:33

It is up to you. They will tell you the truth.

00:37:34--> 00:37:40

And if you spoke to them, if you said something to them, they would not accuse you of lying,

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

they would not suspect

00:37:44--> 00:37:45

they will

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

they have a lot of models.

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

As you mentioned our city manager

00:37:55--> 00:37:56

and our beta

00:38:00--> 00:38:02

group, our VEDA.

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

He

00:38:05--> 00:38:13

is in a separate position he is in a special position with I have to describe him as being extremely modest person.

00:38:14--> 00:38:39

Almost we can say the word shy when we say shy in English today as well like witness, shy today's like if they want you in the corporate field they take you and they say look at the eye you must look them in the eye. You have to speak to you know to all the people in the office. You can't be an introspective person. You have to come out of yourself. But they weren't great.

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

But how do we pay the

00:38:45--> 00:39:01

modesty for him was not weakness. Although he was extremely humble with Muslims when the enemies of Allah azza wa jal came with us even approach the believers, they described him as the sharp side of the sword,

00:39:02--> 00:39:12

he turns into a light. So this is not weakness. Utility, modesty is not weakness, it is setting limitations.

00:39:13--> 00:39:17

hierarchy hyah gear security it gives health to the bottom.

00:39:18--> 00:39:25

It gives health to the consciousness and it gives a special type of character to the individual.

00:39:27--> 00:39:30

The world we are living in today is the US.

00:39:31--> 00:39:44

Programming coming to us on the television, the media, the symbols science, the sights, the sounds, we are hearing is all breaking down the podcast

00:39:45--> 00:39:47

and the younger generation when

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

they are exposed with this template

00:39:52--> 00:40:00

and studies are being done. A person is watching the television over a period of 10 years. They will

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

I've seen 1000s of people being brutally killed,

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

they will have probably seen great.

00:40:07--> 00:40:13

They will see things that normal people in their young age are not exposed.

00:40:15--> 00:40:31

But it comes up and starts to form a type of consciousness. And so this global culture coming at us is breaking down with that modesty. What is it doing is taking us out of a natural state that we have.

00:40:32--> 00:40:36

And taking away that opportunity to leave the earth in a state of itself.

00:40:37--> 00:40:41

Me have also come out with a pure, innocent heart.

00:40:43--> 00:40:44

So it is serious.

00:40:46--> 00:40:49

And it comes at us in many different ways.

00:40:50--> 00:40:55

Recently in South Africa, they have a national poll.

00:40:56--> 00:41:07

They went up to the radios. They did a poll and they asked the people of South Africa, they said, What do you think about legalized prostitution?

00:41:09--> 00:41:17

We want to institute in this country legalized prostitution, and also to allow drugs legalized drugs, what do you think about this?

00:41:18--> 00:41:36

And they were shocked to find out that the response was from the people. And this is not just Muslims, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, traditional religion, all colors, 79% of the people in the country said, No, we are against it.

00:41:38--> 00:41:44

And it was a shock for the people. It was a shock for those programs, who thought they had taken all of the higher power.

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

Still, there is something

00:41:48--> 00:42:06

left in the hearts of the people. But they said no, to the person, the World Cup is coming. We have to have legalized prostitution in Europe. So we have to say you're not civilized. For 79% of the people in the country said no.

00:42:08--> 00:42:38

And that was the stance that the pollsters are trying to understand. The scholars are trying to understand, but they refuse to look at religion itself. They refuse to connect this with the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala with the revelation through the example of the prophets that has shown people in their cultures, what really is, and what are the limits that people should have with

00:42:40--> 00:42:57

what happens in this society and is getting worse and worse, is that by breaking down this Morales, by breaking down these limitations, other limitations are also broken. To the point where even said he's under custody.

00:42:59--> 00:43:11

You don't have power, you don't have shame, then do what you want. Most of you're capable of doing anything. So if you're higher down, you're capable of anything.

00:43:13--> 00:43:27

And so it continues to happen. But now the responses come. And then we work in Cape Town, 38,000 people displaced in three days, the reporting about when like people did not remember.

00:43:28--> 00:43:42

They talked about India, and Bangladesh today. They say there is more water pouring down into Bangladesh and India, the flood is greater than anything in living memory.

00:43:44--> 00:43:46

This is how they're talking about.

00:43:47--> 00:43:55

It's the greatest living memory. And that's serious, because people have been recording information for a long time.

00:43:57--> 00:44:02

So it is serious, is something really serious. And a lot

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

of insert

00:44:05--> 00:44:06

is telling us

00:44:13--> 00:44:17

what it is didn't ask you to leave the army. The

00:44:19--> 00:44:33

corruption has appeared on the land and the sea because of what people's hands have earned. And we will make the taste something of what they have done. important that they will

00:44:34--> 00:44:50

look at this first corruption as the land of the sea. When the Sahaba looked at this, there was many interesting opinions that came up about us, Africa or South Africa. What does this mean?

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

As the wildlife being destroyed, vegetation being destroyed even the fish in the ocean

00:45:01--> 00:45:08

On the decrease, why did this happen? People are next to each other,

00:45:09--> 00:45:20

because of the sins of children out of bodies, so because of transgression going over the limits, no higher,

00:45:22--> 00:45:22

low higher

00:45:25--> 00:45:28

limits. And because of this, they will see the results.

00:45:29--> 00:45:33

And they even said it What if one party

00:45:35--> 00:45:37

was ripped off eternia.

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

To see him

00:45:42--> 00:45:53

if interests and usually, and fornication and adultery, appear amongst the people that they have brought on by themselves.

00:45:58--> 00:46:00

And so what is happening around us?

00:46:02--> 00:46:07

It is a natural consequence. It's not something supernatural.

00:46:08--> 00:46:09

It's a natural.

00:46:11--> 00:46:12

And it's natural.

00:46:14--> 00:46:24

And the issues in this particular issues of interest, and usually the first speaker, you heard how serious this is

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

that we have some sort of way out of this as a nation.

00:46:30--> 00:46:45

And so we should try to the best of our abilities to support any interest free bank, or institution, we should look upon this as one of the most important acts

00:46:46--> 00:46:57

because official talk about politics. And as they talk very hard to think about the subject statement about what they want in this world. If they're interested, usually, they're wasting their time.

00:46:59--> 00:47:02

But the shotgun here to witness here for us is,

00:47:04--> 00:47:08

is the fornication and adultery that's coming in.

00:47:09--> 00:47:15

And through this fornication, adultery, and this is a really similar

00:47:17--> 00:47:26

type of system coming into people. And we see it happening over and over and over again, when I was growing up in the United States.

00:47:27--> 00:47:34

And the television now, they will shortly have television program, they have one called I Love Lucy, this may be

00:47:36--> 00:47:37

in

00:47:38--> 00:47:47

a television program, because of the morality of the society, they would not allow Lucy and her husband to go to the basement in the same room.

00:47:49--> 00:47:52

They wouldn't allow because of the box now.

00:47:55--> 00:47:58

x x x so you can even come

00:48:00--> 00:48:02

in one mainstream program.

00:48:04--> 00:48:10

And so what is happening, how dangerous this is, especially before the occasion.

00:48:11--> 00:48:14

Because it tells us the answer to Islam.

00:48:16--> 00:48:17

In

00:48:18--> 00:48:18

Sha,

00:48:19--> 00:48:36

Allah, he said, Don't come near fornication and adultery. Because it is an abomination is a terrible immorality, and it will destroy everything in your life. It will destroy everything, ruin your reputation, ruin your family.

00:48:37--> 00:48:47

Even your physical life now we have a prototype in southern Africa, it has reached the point where in parts of South Africa 36% of the population

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

it's reached,

00:48:52--> 00:48:59

but they don't want to deal with the real reality of abstention, of knowing who your partner is to have

00:49:00--> 00:49:10

what we know as surety in your relationships, purity in your path, they keep trying to cut this up. And this is the essence of the solution.

00:49:12--> 00:49:24

And so the reality going on in front of us, it is you could say many of the scholars are saying today that the real trouble today. It is not.

00:49:28--> 00:49:36

It's not just land and limits or rotational boundaries. What the real struggle is,

00:49:39--> 00:49:45

is the essence of our belief. And our existence is being

00:49:46--> 00:49:53

you could say that in this century. This is a struggle between morality and evil.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

Because that is the basis behind much of what we see in the world today. And what's

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

The purpose of something to say about his own mission, he said,

00:50:06--> 00:50:10

I have been sent in order to prepare the best. And

00:50:12--> 00:50:27

that's the essence of the messages of love is the character theory, this again, morality, hierarchy, hyah limitations, that's the essence of what is going on. And when we look at any major struggle,

00:50:28--> 00:50:35

in any aspect of our life, we have to go back to this in order to really understand what is going on.

00:50:38--> 00:50:51

In this struggle in this area of corruption in the world, an interesting report came out from the United Nations. Unfortunately, the United Nations has not done well,

00:50:53--> 00:50:55

especially the so called peacekeepers

00:50:56--> 00:50:58

who come into our country and protect everybody.

00:51:00--> 00:51:04

But when it comes to information, sometimes they are right on the back.

00:51:05--> 00:51:28

And they came with a startling report. And this is something that we need to consider now series. They said, This generation is the largest generation in young people between childhood and adult people between 15 and 24 years old. This is the largest generation that has ever existed in every corner. This happened.

00:51:30--> 00:51:36

And they found that 48% of the world population is under 24.

00:51:38--> 00:52:03

of this 48% 86% are in the developing countries. This is shocking. In Africa, on the African continent, over 60% of the population are under 25 16%. And if we were to take them and put them out of field, male or female, young old, you'll see that the majority are actually

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

the majority

00:52:09--> 00:52:11

of what is happening to the issue.

00:52:12--> 00:53:05

And this report, which goes into many aspects, I wanted to share with you some of the points that they made as crisis points. They said this five points of crisis. This is interesting, because these are non Muslims. But you can see how this relates to us. Number one, they said violence, that people are growing up in an atmosphere of violence. And we know that it's not just physical in many of our countries. And we know this because of the terrorist unleashed against us, people growing up with this violence all around, but it's also psychological, its visual map of the television and the need to the erosion of traditional balance. This is an interesting point, that the traditional values

00:53:05--> 00:53:06

morality

00:53:07--> 00:53:09

is deteriorating,

00:53:10--> 00:53:45

is eroding right in front of the eyes of the society. So young people, what is their morality? What is it that they didn't Rosabeth Ross hustlers common man lowlife, these are the role models of the younger generation today. So these are crisis points right across the board, not just Muslims, but it is really hitting us. And I have found that now being in London in the village area, I don't know about Manchester, but in London now, the street gangs, the Muslim street gangs.

00:53:48--> 00:53:50

I don't know about that. Just because you're very nice to like,

00:53:55--> 00:54:06

people are involved in drug taking in game betting. It's happening right now, Muslims. So the whole society is going through this change.

00:54:07--> 00:54:10

Number three of the crisis points is,

00:54:12--> 00:54:12

is

00:54:13--> 00:54:27

especially in the developing countries, number four disease. These are crisis points for the people coming into the world. There are diseases moving around now amongst people that we never knew about.

00:54:29--> 00:54:33

And number five, crisis points for the youth drugs.

00:54:35--> 00:54:38

the proliferation of drugs in our society,

00:54:39--> 00:54:46

and South Africa, we are facing it directly because it is the major trafficking point for drugs in the world. Right.

00:54:48--> 00:54:49

So

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

from these crisis points, they have a number of action is one of the action areas I wanted to focus on today because it's another topic

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

Set aside, of the corruption in our book XOR, to proof, and that action point is that humanity needs to do something about the

00:55:13--> 00:55:16

environment is actually tied in

00:55:17--> 00:55:21

with the societies, you cannot separate

00:55:22--> 00:55:46

the environment itself, what's happening in the Empire, with the political systems in our societies, you can't separate with the division of wealth amongst people, because poverty is involved in just like poverty and malnutrition is part of HIV as the breaking down of the immune system. And so,

00:55:47--> 00:55:58

statistics coming to us are showing us that 20% of the people in the developing world account for 86% of the consumption

00:55:59--> 00:56:06

86% of the consumption of natural resources is in the development

00:56:08--> 00:56:09

only 20%.

00:56:11--> 00:56:18

In a few years ago, they said, the meat that they feed dogs in the UK, could feed the holder,

00:56:19--> 00:56:21

the meat of the dogs.

00:56:23--> 00:56:36

And that separation, that of justice, in wealth, has an impact on everything. So what that means is that 80% of the people, they only consume 14%.

00:56:38--> 00:56:47

And they also found the poorest 20% 20% of the world's population only consumes 1.3%

00:56:48--> 00:56:55

of the resources. This is injustice, this is crap. But also what comes out

00:56:57--> 00:56:59

is the misuse of technology.

00:57:01--> 00:57:20

So pollution of the land and the sea pollution of the air pollution of the seas, destruction of the environment, cutting down with the trees, not it's all over the place. And because of this, we see the results pouring down on us.

00:57:21--> 00:57:25

In Canada, we have what they call acid rain,

00:57:26--> 00:57:35

and an acid rain. Because of the pollution in the atmosphere, when it rains out, on some occasions, there's acid inside of the ring.

00:57:37--> 00:57:44

So, the rain, which is supposed to be a mercy for humanity and for the earth is a function essentially actually quite easy.

00:57:46--> 00:57:47

So this

00:57:49--> 00:58:03

corruption has appeared on the MSC, because of what humanities candidates have heard, and we will make them taste something of what they have done is they will,

00:58:04--> 00:58:05

we will make a taste.

00:58:07--> 00:58:09

And we are tasting it now

00:58:11--> 00:58:14

in the atmosphere breathing in poises

00:58:15--> 00:58:19

drinking water that's polluted. And then we tried to make the

00:58:20--> 00:58:23

animals now carrying viruses back

00:58:26--> 00:58:26

to the UK.

00:58:31--> 00:58:36

And the mission of Muslims was never meant to be only to stay inside.

00:58:38--> 00:58:46

It was never only to be to keep this to ourselves, but to take it out to the world because we get this and the sooner

00:58:47--> 00:58:51

we have wisdom we have solutions to these problems.

00:58:53--> 00:58:56

And so, we need to

00:58:58--> 00:59:02

look on an individual level, what can we do in this job?

00:59:03--> 00:59:06

Now before we should come closer to a loss,

00:59:07--> 00:59:21

we need to make that connection with the role of the last straw to form a relationship with Allah azza wa jal so we are aware of the Creator not just in the masjid, but outside.

00:59:23--> 00:59:23

How do we how

00:59:25--> 00:59:28

do we act like nice polite people in the masjid?

00:59:29--> 00:59:35

And then outside something different? You remember 10 years ago what we used to talk about

00:59:37--> 00:59:40

and you see him in the marketplace below is

00:59:41--> 00:59:43

his character has changed.

00:59:45--> 00:59:45

It is.

00:59:49--> 00:59:49

Who is it?

00:59:54--> 00:59:59

Any changes not just this business guy. Sometimes character changes. It's like a hypocrite.

01:00:00--> 01:00:11

So needs to be fluid and consistent inside the machine and outside the same model, we have lowering the data in the machine, it should be outside to

01:00:13--> 01:00:17

the same goes off in this machine, everybody's ready

01:00:18--> 01:00:21

for the attack goes off, and we're in the soup.

01:00:22--> 01:00:23

And people say, Well, I have to

01:00:25--> 01:00:25

get home

01:00:27--> 01:00:28

all together.

01:00:30--> 01:00:30

Right?

01:00:32--> 01:00:33

That's what some of us say.

01:00:35--> 01:00:41

What do we do how close we are to meeting a lot, we would do that a lot, even if people are looking at us.

01:00:43--> 01:00:50

So it needs to be consistent. Our relationship with Allah azza wa jal needs to be consistent, and

01:00:51--> 01:00:55

going into the sooner and the sooner is not just to recap,

01:00:57--> 01:00:59

is some not in our

01:01:00--> 01:01:12

past and how we deal with each other, that is a part of the suta that we are getting. We want the rituals, but what about the character? How do we deal with people and not just Muslims? How do we deal with

01:01:14--> 01:01:15

this is part of the character,

01:01:17--> 01:01:19

which always came through all the way to the

01:01:21--> 01:01:22

end. So the

01:01:23--> 01:01:30

unity, what we are talking about now what Muslims need to see what is similar

01:01:31--> 01:01:32

between ourselves

01:01:34--> 01:01:35

the most important difference

01:01:38--> 01:01:51

because there's a lot of similar between us, and sometimes only a small difference between one another and they enlarge in the small difference. And then look at the person that though is not even

01:01:52--> 01:01:56

we need to drop this and start looking at the people.

01:01:58--> 01:02:20

And so working unity, let us unite in action programs, doing something for the environment, on an individual level, people are talking about an individual level, we can even begin in terms of our own self, you know, reduce our waste, carbon dioxide,

01:02:21--> 01:02:29

reduce our footprints, as they say, in this world. Do something, reuse this, reuse it.

01:02:30--> 01:02:32

Okay? Also,

01:02:33--> 01:02:35

we need to recycle to learn how to recycle.

01:02:37--> 01:02:38

We make a lot of waste.

01:02:40--> 01:02:55

And you've got too many programs, and you see most of the food, but many times we're killing our bodies and killing the environments. And they have to reach out and they eat the food. And they look and they say now the food is served and the meat is floating in oil.

01:02:58--> 01:03:03

And we put all the oil inside of our bodies and live, I'm thirsty. And what do I love coke class.

01:03:04--> 01:03:06

I love Coca Cola.

01:03:07--> 01:03:10

And I treat my coke. Coke is 21

01:03:11--> 01:03:12

and a half as the chemicals.

01:03:19--> 01:03:23

And then check out Coca Cola represents.

01:03:24--> 01:03:29

And you'll see a Philistine that wouldn't drink in that Coke, you're bombing the child.

01:03:31--> 01:03:46

You cannot separate what is going on in the environment, and in the politics of this world. And so in all ways, we need to assume our role and what the program is talking about.

01:03:48--> 01:03:52

And it's not just in a political sense, people want a fit

01:03:53--> 01:03:56

of the political system, which is ultimately necessary.

01:03:58--> 01:04:13

But we need to move first in the essence of belief, which is representative of our loss of power on this earth. Which means that we have to tread lightly in the world and take our responsibilities. The real

01:04:15--> 01:04:23

the real calling to a lot coming out of ourselves is providing Islamic solutions to real problems

01:04:24--> 01:04:30

for society. We spend too much time arguing over trivia.

01:04:31--> 01:04:33

We argue over the minor issues.

01:04:35--> 01:04:39

We have a minor things is going to set separate

01:04:41--> 01:04:42

and you don't

01:04:44--> 01:04:45

know the process.

01:04:49--> 01:04:50

Me trade.

01:04:51--> 01:04:52

So anyways,

01:04:53--> 01:04:58

you're printing in the way of the price also. So why make a submission

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

and so

01:05:00--> 01:05:20

To take that position to assume that position as the felipa to provide gems of wisdom, we are carrying solutions to the HIV AIDS crisis solutions through basic solutions to a political pressure, economic pressure. So as solutions to the environment

01:05:23--> 01:05:26

give us the strength to to change our lives and

01:05:29--> 01:05:33

strengthen our relationship with him and make us stronger and

01:05:34--> 01:05:37

protect the women and children of the

01:05:39--> 01:05:40

below protect the men of the

01:05:42--> 01:05:43

male already

01:05:44--> 01:05:48

in this world, a leader who will take our misguided political leaders for

01:05:50--> 01:05:54

male I help us to be of those who will die coming up
