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

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:00:09--> 00:00:18

wa sallahu wa salam ala carte to Milan via he will mostly say that the Mohammed rally he was off the edge my Baba

00:00:20--> 00:00:22

all praises to to Allah Lord of the worlds

00:00:24--> 00:00:44

and May Allah constantly and always send peace and blessings to Mohammed to his family, his companions and all those who called his way to the day of judgment as to what follows I begin with the greeting words of the righteous are Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

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

And I bring to you

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

feelings of solidarity and salams, from your brothers and sisters in the southern region of Africa.

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

And I want to say

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

that being in London, yesterday, downtown London, it felt like it was deserted.

00:01:10--> 00:01:21

And in the past, when we used to come to London and travel around, people would look at us and see the way we dressed and we felt strange. We felt like hurrah.

00:01:23--> 00:01:32

But now there is something different added to that. Not only the strangeness, but fear, fear in the eyes of the people.

00:01:34--> 00:01:44

This has no doubt the incident, in the past few weeks, has no doubt, propelled this community to the frontlines.

00:01:45--> 00:01:56

And I want to express to you, after having been in North America, and South Africa, Southern Africa, within the past two weeks,

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

you're not alone.

00:01:59--> 00:02:13

Muslims around this planet, are making dua for you. And we pray that Allah subhana wa Taala would protect you and would unite you and would give you success in this life and the hereafter.

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

We are in times of oppression.

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

We are in a time of deception.

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

And in this time,

00:02:25--> 00:02:33

we seek refuge in the words of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah has revealed to us a revelation

00:02:34--> 00:02:43

that was divine light in the time of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and will continue

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

to shed light upon our lives, to the Day of Resurrection.

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

And many times, especially under pressure.

00:02:55--> 00:03:00

When we return to the sources, Allah gives us a type of basura

00:03:02--> 00:03:12

because the weight of the events around us, make us conscious or more conscious of the guidance that Allah has given to us.

00:03:13--> 00:03:23

And so Ali imraan verse 186, Allah azza wa jal has revealed to us. Aruba Billahi min ash shaytani regime,

00:03:24--> 00:03:41

LA to blue n fi Mr. Li como unphysical wanna Tasman Amina levena O'Toole kita Berman publikum woman Allah Dena ash Roku as an kathira were in today's video what Taku for alikum annasmith Amore.

00:03:43--> 00:04:08

Allah has revealed, you shall certainly be tried and tested in your wealth and properties and in your personal selves. And you shall certainly hear much that will grieve you from those who received the scriptures before you and from those who associate partners with a lot.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

But if you persevere patiently

00:04:13--> 00:04:27

and have the consciousness of Allah, Fear Allah and hope in the mercy of Allah, then verily, that will be a determining factor in all of this.

00:04:28--> 00:04:34

And so we seek refuge in the words of the Creator of the heavens and the earth.

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

In South Africa,

00:04:38--> 00:04:42

we have been living also on the frontlines.

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

Disease is ravaging our lands.

00:04:47--> 00:04:52

Poverty is still taking a tremendous toll on the people.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

And recently, I was surprised to read in a BBC article

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

BBC Africa,

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

the July to September edition. The article was called God, gospel and the dollar.

00:05:11--> 00:05:15

And I was surprised to see how straightforward they were.

00:05:16--> 00:05:25

In dealing with the African continent, the article stated, Africa is being colonized and christianized all over again.

00:05:26--> 00:05:37

It showed that 1000s of missionaries, who are even affecting foreign policy in major Western countries are pouring into the African continent.

00:05:38--> 00:05:45

A Ghanian born head of the New York based African Development Institute, Kwame O'Connell.

00:05:46--> 00:05:56

He stated, this is not so much a colonizing of land, as it is a colonizing of the mind.

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

It is a mental attack.

00:06:02--> 00:06:20

Sharon pumpelly, of the Southern Baptist Convention, she spoke straightforward. And they put it in the article. The evangelicals, greatest opponent in Africa, is not tradition. It is Islam.

00:06:22--> 00:06:27

Africa, she says, is a spiritual battlefield.

00:06:29--> 00:06:53

And so the focus shows us that what is happening around us, and I did to take this a step further, not only in Africa, but all over the planet. It is a spiritual battle, a battle for the souls. It is a mental battle that has different forms, different manifestations in different parts of the planet.

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

Why would they consider Islam the enemy?

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

When we look on the African continent and much of the world, we find spiritually, people are confused.

00:07:09--> 00:07:28

Man worship is on the rise. Magic. The Sahara, magicians are rising up in all countries in different forms. They even have people coming on television, who talk to your ancestors. I don't know if they have that here in the UK.

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

You stand in front of him and he talks to your grandfather.

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

And he said he has a yellow shirt on.

00:07:38--> 00:07:46

And people believe it 1000s of people watch it Why? There is a spiritual vacuum.

00:07:48--> 00:07:52

But Allah subhanaw taala has given us yaka Naboo

00:07:55--> 00:08:01

straightforward, you alone a lot do we worship and from you alone do we seek help?

00:08:03--> 00:08:20

Islam is not an attack, it is life giving. And for us in the southern region. And in many parts of the world, we see clearly, people transforming in front of our eyes, it is a life giving

00:08:21--> 00:08:21

way.

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

In the economic sphere.

00:08:25--> 00:08:33

The system of usury and interests is killing us. The domination of the bankers,

00:08:35--> 00:08:42

the inequalities of the rich and the poor. This poverty is stripping human beings of dignity.

00:08:44--> 00:08:54

And we see it harsh poverty. And we're hearing now about Niger, and Mali, millions of Muslims starving to death.

00:08:55--> 00:09:14

You have to realize that for many people, the bottom line is not the fact that I'm wearing a turban. The bottom line is that Islam is life giving an interest free system that would liberate this planet.

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

In the social sphere,

00:09:21--> 00:09:34

in the social sphere, drugs, alcohol, gambling, it's killing us. Drugs are ravaging all of our communities go to the younger generation.

00:09:35--> 00:09:42

See what the problem is that they are facing. And people who cannot take the pressure are resorting to drugs.

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

Islam is a life giving way to take a person out of a drug habit to take a person out of addiction to gambling to purify their life. This is not the enemy

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

This is the Savior of humanity.

00:10:03--> 00:10:20

In areas of health, we have seen with our eyes, the life giving virtues of Islam. In some parts of the southern region, one in every three people is HIV positive, one and three.

00:10:22--> 00:10:46

But when a person takes to heart a purification into their life, purifies their belief, purifies their bodies, purifies their home, purifies their sexual relationships. They have a shield against the scourge of HIV AIDS. Islam is life giving. And we have seen in Uganda,

00:10:47--> 00:10:56

that at one point had the highest percentage of people who are HIV positive, the Muslims took the lead, implemented Islam.

00:10:58--> 00:11:06

And they were able to lower the percentage of HIV faster than anybody else on the face of the planet Earth.

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

Islam

00:11:12--> 00:11:17

in the family, it is the last hope for the family.

00:11:18--> 00:11:42

In Canada, I just returned and the people in all the religious communities are reeling with the passing of a bill called C 38. This is the same sex bill that is passed, where two men or two women in a relationship would get all of the protection all of the rights of a married couple, and people are in a state of confusion.

00:11:44--> 00:11:53

But Islam is life giving, and that it clearly shows that a man is a man and a woman is a woman.

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

It is life giving.

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

And it is the only hope for the savior of the family.

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

On a political sphere,

00:12:05--> 00:12:10

we have the potential to bring to people a system

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

where the politician

00:12:13--> 00:12:27

is the most trustworthy person in the community. Today, it's the opposite of you said john Ali has become a politician. In most parts of the world, it means he's a crook.

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

He'll say one thing before the election and do something after the election.

00:12:33--> 00:12:50

But the Islamic system is the rule of Allah subhanaw taala, and not the rule of manmade systems. It is the rule that frees us from the limitations of our thinking, and the weaknesses inside of ourselves.

00:12:53--> 00:13:11

But we have to deal with our reality. Somebody has to practice Islam. And I say this to the younger generation, after traveling for years in the Muslim communities, and feeling the frustration of people entering in Islam and young people.

00:13:12--> 00:13:29

Our numbers are so great. Our wealth is so great. We have standing armies, we have intellectuals. So why are we still feeling degradation and humiliation? Why are we still suffering in the way that we suffer?

00:13:30--> 00:14:19

We cry for change. But we have to look inside of ourselves. We are facing not only anti Islam, the anti Islam propaganda, but what we call counter Islam. And that is where Muslims practice something else in the name of Islam. And sometimes they're the biggest obstacle in the spread of this message. And so we cry for change. We cry for an Islamic State, we cry for economics, we cry for leadership, but Allah has told us in the law, you know, maybe Coleman had a you know, maybe unforeseen, unforeseeable, Allah will not change the condition of a people till they change that which is in themselves.

00:14:21--> 00:14:22

No change.

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

We have to make collective Toba.

00:14:28--> 00:14:34

All of us for not standing up for Islam in the way that we should.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

We need to make Toba

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

and I want to speak straightforward for the younger generation. Because we need to be honest with each other and speak not only from the mind, but from the heart. We need to repent to Allah subhanaw taala up until now, even after the crisis of seven, seven. Even after the pressure, we still have Muslims

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

Who are judging each other based upon their faith? We still have Muslims putting name tags, calling people were hobbies, calling people

00:15:12--> 00:15:21

calling people all types of names, dividing themselves up one against another, based upon a methodology of prayer.

00:15:22--> 00:15:35

We have to repent to Allah subhanaw taala because the great Allah with teachers and students of each other, they did not come to divide up this religion. They came to bring us together.

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

We need to make Toba

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

collectively, up until now.

00:15:44--> 00:15:52

We still have amongst us those who judge another person based on their color or based on their tribe.

00:15:54--> 00:16:00

He wants to get married. He comes to the family and they say, which village do you come from?

00:16:01--> 00:16:08

Or they may even say which part of the village did you come from? Did you come from the hill or down by the river?

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

She wants to get married and they say oh, Is she pretty? Is she light and bright?

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

I'm telling you the truth.

00:16:22--> 00:16:29

tribalism is nothing it's filled. The prophet SAW Selim spoke about it as a filthy corruption.

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

And if we want to be successful, take it out of your heart.

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

Don't judge another person based on their color.

00:16:38--> 00:16:44

Don't judge based on a tribe or a language. It is the dean

00:16:45--> 00:16:50

it is it is the taqwa that is what separates us one from another.

00:16:51--> 00:17:12

We need to make Toba up until now. We don't treat the new Muslims properly. people accept Islam and we embrace that person. Mashallah we embrace them. Everybody hugs them, the masjid lines up, and then they finish they're standing alone. I'll see you next Friday.

00:17:14--> 00:17:35

He's alone and she's alone. They gave up in some cases, their families, their traditions, they were supposed to be coming into Dar Al Islam into the abode of peace. It is our duty. If there are new Muslims who don't understand the faith. We are accountable for this.

00:17:36--> 00:17:51

If there are problems, economic problems, social problems, psychological problems, we need to set up institutions to prepare people to deal with the new Muslims. After all, why are we here in the UK?

00:17:52--> 00:17:59

Do you think it is by chance? Are you here because you're slaves of the colonial system. And now you're trying to get hot and cold water?

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

Are you here because of the shopping mall?

00:18:04--> 00:18:25

We are here to stand up for this faith it karma to do and to get this message across to the people. We need to make repentance when not relating to the younger generation. How many people understand about drugs? You understand why a person takes drugs? Do you know what gang banging is?

00:18:26--> 00:18:30

Do you know why a person joins a gang? We have to make repentance to Allah.

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

Figures came to us about the marriage situation.

00:18:36--> 00:18:47

One in 15 families are divorced. It's not only the non Muslims, it's hitting a community. What happens to a woman who is divorced?

00:18:48--> 00:18:54

Who has to take care of her? What happens to her children? Is there a stigma

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

that is put on to the woman

00:18:57--> 00:19:19

we still oppress the sisters. We talk about liberation. We bring the ayat and the ahaadeeth but we need to empower Muslim women Alhamdulillah for the sisters who spoke out Alhamdulillah we need to empower Muslim women within the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

how do we go about this?

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

I leave you with seven points.

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

Number one,

00:19:31--> 00:19:35

collective Toba or Takara Bella.

00:19:36--> 00:19:49

Under this pressure, we need to come close to Allah subhanaw taala when you feel the heat of evil around you, turn to Allah subhanaw taala increase your evader

00:19:50--> 00:19:58

increase your setup or increase your remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala put the name of Allah on your lips all during the day.

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

Come close.

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

In the Sunnah,

00:20:02--> 00:20:15

put Islam into your life come closer to Allah because Allah has power over all things and if the crowd gets big, if they put fear in our hearts, we say what Allah said has Spooner law when near Milwaukee.

00:20:16--> 00:20:25

Allah is the one who will take account of us and ultimately allows the best to protect. So we need to come close to Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

and repent to

00:20:29--> 00:21:11

working unity. We need a collective working unity amongst Muslims. Yes, there are differences. There are differences in all parts of creation. The flowers are different colors. The birds are different colors. It is my dream and I may be naive, but it is my dream and it is my dream. inshallah, in this younger generation, the Muslims will stand together, Salafi, Sufi, Tablighi, a Swanee, his Buta, Hurriya, all of the jamaats Let us stand together based on the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam

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

How can we bring about this unity?

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

Allah is already united us, we have the same faith.

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

If we focus on the main issues, we're all the same.

00:21:31--> 00:21:41

The minor issue if there's an issue in food or a minor issue, then you give naseeha give advice to your brother and sister. If they if they disagree, make do

00:21:43--> 00:21:53

but don't scandalize another Muslim, don't attack the honor of another Muslim. So we've already been united, we've been united and a badger in worship.

00:21:54--> 00:22:32

And so we need a broad working base. We have differences in our methodology. But when it comes to Muslims, if Muslims under are under attack, all of us need to stand shoulder to shoulder drop your differences and come together in the shorter then you will be filling fulfilling the message of Allah. How can I say this? One of the great Sahaba God, even Abdullah rhodiola one, he said by Arturo Sula, La La alayhi salatu, salam, Allah, a common salaat where he is a cat oneness liquidly Muslim.

00:22:34--> 00:22:55

He said, I took the bait. I took the pledge to the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him to establish prayers to establish Zakah and to give advice and sincerity and support to every Muslim. He didn't say Muslim either be

00:22:56--> 00:23:04

it didn't say a Qureshi Muslim, and Arab Muslim, American Muslim. He said luckily Muslim.

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

So we're already united. So we need to come together

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

in a working coalition.

00:23:13--> 00:23:19

Number three, we need to empower Muslim women in the leadership

00:23:21--> 00:23:34

Alhamdulillah for this conference, but I'm tired of conferences where they say there's a special section for the women and you will have a special conference, what is the topic The topic is Islamic cooking.

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

What is the latest latest samosa?

00:23:41--> 00:23:57

Let the sister study to heat study Tafseer study, study, study everything that the brothers are studying and you will find in many cases, they will come with conclusions that are closer to the truth than ours.

00:24:05--> 00:24:19

We need to focus on the younger generation provide halau alternatives halau alternatives for 21st century lifestyle, recreation,

00:24:20--> 00:24:50

sports, career development, we need to have a practical program to get the youth involved and to help them to make decisions. So they're not caught up by drug dealers or gangsters. Number five, we need to continue to be aware of the crises of the Muslim world and actively involve ourselves in standing up for the Muslims anywhere on this planet.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

We are all part of one oma and we need to at least raise our voice.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

At least stand up wherever we can.

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

Number six, a special emphasis on a Dhow

00:25:06--> 00:25:44

outreach. It needs to be part of our program, now is the time. If the people are confused about Islam, take it out to them. Take the court and to the people we have started a program discover the core and we want 200,000 core ants will take it out to the people a translation in the English language or whatever is the language. Take it to the people that don't understand what Islam is, before it is too late. is no more profits to come. If you're waiting for a magette did or the Maha de only Allah knows when he will appear.

00:25:46--> 00:25:49

And number seven relevancy,

00:25:50--> 00:26:10

relevant solutions to the problems of society. We need Islamic solution to HIV AIDS, racism, drug abuse, polytheism, atheism, sexual perversion, we have the solutions, we are holding gems of wisdom.

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

And we cannot allow fear to stop us to go forward in the time of the Prophet peace be upon him. When the battle got harsh. When the enemy was close, when fear was there, the Muslims didn't run away, they ran toward the enemy.

00:26:30--> 00:26:33

We need to go forward, living Islam.

00:26:34--> 00:26:40

Live Islam shows the people what this message is about. In conclusion,

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

we are living in times of deception.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

Our name is being distorted.

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

Our beloved porque en is under attack.

00:26:54--> 00:26:57

And it seems like it's becoming a profession

00:26:59--> 00:27:03

to distort things about Islam. Anything that happens?

00:27:04--> 00:27:11

A plane crashed in Toronto, Canada recently because of the weather. Was it a bomb? Was it a terrorist?

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

Everything is a terrorist who's a terrorist.

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

It is a time of deception.

00:27:20--> 00:27:24

But I say to the liars, I say to the liars.

00:27:26--> 00:27:32

What the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him set and his time a man in the middle of Arabia

00:27:34--> 00:27:35

named Hussein Lima.

00:27:36--> 00:27:50

He wrote a letter to the messenger peace be upon him and he said, from Hussein Lima, the Messenger of Allah, to Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah. You take one part of Arabia, and I'll take the other part.

00:27:51--> 00:27:59

The prophets Allah wrote back, min Mohammed Rasulullah alayhi salatu salam ala musei Lima, I'll cut that

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

to musei Lima the great liar.

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

What did the Prophet peace be upon him said

00:28:07--> 00:28:12

and we say it again today. In this world, this is not a political struggle.

00:28:14--> 00:28:36

Allah azza wa jal will decide. And the Prophet peace be upon him said in the law he used to Harmon Yasha Abadi will RP botulinum toxin, this earth belongs to Allah and He will give it to whom he pleases from his worship is and the best reward. The ultimate success

00:28:37--> 00:29:26

is for those who have Taqwa, those who have the consciousness of Allah. I leave you with these words. I asked a lot to have mercy on me to have mercy on you. I asked a lot to protect the children of the Omar Mohamed Salah. I asked a lot to protect the women of the home of Mohammed Salah. I asked a lot to protect the men of the Omar Mohamed Salah. I asked a lot to raise up a leader who would take our misguided political states from darkness into light. And I asked a lot to help us to be with him and to be with all those who stand for La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah alayhi salatu salam May Allah make our last words our best words may like May Allah make all of us die with

00:29:26--> 00:29:36

kelemen La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah on our lips akula Cali Hilda was stuck for lolly walakum wa salaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:29:38--> 00:29:40

said he has a yellow shirt on.

00:29:42--> 00:29:50

And people believe it 1000s of people watch it Why? There is a spiritual vacuum.

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

But Allah subhanaw taala has given us yaka Naboo we're gonna stay straight

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

Forward, you alone a lot do we worship and from you alone do we seek help?

00:30:07--> 00:30:24

Islam is not an attack, it is life giving. And for us in the southern region, and in many parts of the world, we see clearly, people transforming in front of our eyes, it is a life giving

00:30:25--> 00:30:26

way.

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

In the economic sphere,

00:30:29--> 00:30:37

the system of usury and interests is killing us. The domination of the bankers,

00:30:39--> 00:30:46

the inequalities of the rich and the poor. This poverty is stripping human beings of dignity.

00:30:48--> 00:30:58

And we see harsh poverty. And we're hearing now about Niger, and Mali, millions of Muslims starving to death.

00:31:00--> 00:31:18

And you have to realize that for many people, the bottom line is not the fact that I'm wearing a turban. The bottom line is that Islam is life giving an interest free system that would liberate this planet.

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

In the social sphere,

00:31:26--> 00:31:38

in the social sphere, drugs, alcohol, gambling, it's killing us. Drugs are ravaging all of our communities go to the younger generation.

00:31:40--> 00:31:47

See what the problem is that they are facing. And people who cannot take the pressure are resorting to drugs.

00:31:48--> 00:32:06

Islam is a life giving way to take a person out of a drug habit, to take a person out of addiction to gambling to purify their life. This is not the enemy. This is the Savior of humanity.

00:32:08--> 00:32:24

In areas of health, we have seen with our eyes, the life giving virtues of Islam. In some parts of the southern region, one in every three people is HIV positive, one in three.

00:32:26--> 00:32:50

But when a person takes to heart a purification into their life, purifies their belief, purifies their bodies, purifies their home, purifies their sexual relationships. They have a shield against the scourge of HIV AIDS. Islam is life giving. And we have seen in Uganda,

00:32:51--> 00:33:01

that at one point had the highest percentage of people who are HIV positive, the Muslims took the lead implemented Islam.

00:33:02--> 00:33:10

And they were able to lower the percentage of HIV faster than anybody else on the face of the planet Earth.

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

Islam

00:33:16--> 00:33:21

in the family, it is the last hope for the family.

00:33:22--> 00:33:47

In Canada, I just returned and the people in all the religious communities are reeling with the passing of a bill called C 38. This is the same sex bill that is passed with two men or two women in a relationship would get all of the protection all of the rights of a married couple. And people are in a state of confusion.

00:33:48--> 00:33:57

But Islam is life giving, and that it clearly shows that a man is a man and a woman is a woman.

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

It is life giving.

00:34:01--> 00:34:04

And it is the only hope for the savior of the family.

00:34:06--> 00:34:08

On a political sphere,

00:34:09--> 00:34:14

we have the potential to bring to people a system

00:34:15--> 00:34:16

where the politician

00:34:17--> 00:34:31

is the most trustworthy person in the community. Today, it's the opposite of you said john Ali has become a politician. In most parts of the world, it means he's a crook.

00:34:32--> 00:34:37

He'll say one thing before the election and do something after the election.

00:34:38--> 00:34:55

But the Islamic system is the rule of Allah subhanaw taala and not the rule of manmade systems. It is the rule that frees us from the limitations of our thinking and the weaknesses inside of ourselves.

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

But we have to deal with our reality.

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

Somebody has to practice Islam. And I say this to the younger generation, after traveling for years in the Muslim communities, and feeling the frustration of people entering in Islam, and young people.

00:35:16--> 00:35:33

Our numbers are so great. Our wealth is so great. We have standing armies, we have intellectuals. So why are we still feeling degradation and humiliation? Why are we still suffering in the way that we suffer?

00:35:34--> 00:36:23

We cry for change. But we have to look inside of ourselves. We are facing not only anti Islam, the anti Islam propaganda, but what we call counter Islam. And that is where Muslims practice something else in the name of Islam. And sometimes they're the biggest obstacle in the spread of this message. And so we cry for change. We cry for an Islamic state we cry for economics, we cry for leadership, but Allah has told us in the law you might be comin hotter you hate Omar be unfussy him, Allah will not change the condition of a people till they change that which is in themselves.

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

No change.

00:36:28--> 00:36:31

We have to make collective Toba.

00:36:32--> 00:36:33

All of us

00:36:34--> 00:36:38

for not standing up for Islam in the way that we should.

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

We need to make Toba

00:36:43--> 00:37:15

and I want to speak straightforward for the younger generation. Because we need to be honest with each other and speak not only from the mind, but from the heart. We need to repent to Allah subhanaw taala. Up until now, even after the crisis of seven, seven. Even after the pressure, we still have Muslims who are judging each other based upon their faith. We still have Muslims putting name tags, calling people wahabis calling people

00:37:16--> 00:37:25

calling people all types of names, dividing themselves up one against another based upon a methodology of prayer.

00:37:26--> 00:37:39

We have to repent to Allah subhanaw taala because the great Allah with teachers and students of each other, they did not come to divide up this religion. They came to bring us together.

00:37:41--> 00:37:43

We need to make Toba

00:37:44--> 00:37:46

collectively, up until now.

00:37:48--> 00:37:57

We still have amongst us, those who judge another person based on their color or based on their tribe.

00:37:58--> 00:38:04

He wants to get married. He comes to the family and they say which village do you come from?

00:38:05--> 00:38:12

Or they may even say which part of the village did you come from? Did you come from the hill or down by the river?

00:38:15--> 00:38:20

She wants to get married and they say Oh Is she pretty? light and bright.

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

I'm telling you the truth.

00:38:26--> 00:38:33

tribalism is nothing it's filled. The prophet SAW Selim spoke about it as a filthy corruption.

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

And if we want to be successful, take it out of your heart.

00:38:39--> 00:38:41

Don't judge another person based on their color.

00:38:42--> 00:38:48

Don't judge based on a tribe or a language. It is the dean

00:38:49--> 00:38:54

it is it is the taqwa that is what separates us one from another.

00:38:55--> 00:39:16

We need to make Toba up until now. We don't treat the new Muslims properly. people accept Islam and we embrace that person Mashallah we embrace them. Everybody hugs them, the masjid lines up, and then they finish this standing alone. I'll see you next Friday.

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

He's alone and she's alone. They gave up in some cases, their families, their traditions. They were supposed to be coming into Dar Al Islam into the abode of peace. It is our duty. If there are new Muslims who don't understand the faith, we are accountable for this.

00:39:41--> 00:39:55

If there are problems, economic problems, social problems, psychological problems, we need to set up institutions to prepare people to deal with the new Muslims after all, why are we here in the UK?

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

Do you think it is by chance? Are you here because you

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

slaves of the colonial system. And now you're trying to get hot and cold water.

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

Are you here because of the shopping mall?

00:40:08--> 00:40:29

We are here to stand up for this faith in karma to Deen. And to get this message across to the people. We need to make repentance when not relating to the younger generation. How many people understand about drugs? You understand why a person takes drugs? Do you know what gang banging is?

00:40:30--> 00:40:34

Do you know why a person joins a gang? We have to make repentance to Allah.

00:40:36--> 00:40:39

Figures came to us about the marriage situation.

00:40:40--> 00:40:51

One in 15 families are divorced. It's not only the non Muslims, it's hitting our community. What happens to a woman who is divorced?

00:40:52--> 00:40:58

Who has to take care of her? What happens to her children? Is there a stigma

00:40:59--> 00:41:00

that is put onto the woman?

00:41:02--> 00:41:23

We still oppress the sisters. We talk about liberation. We bring the ayat and the ahaadeeth but we need to empower Muslim women Alhamdulillah for the sisters who spoke out Alhamdulillah we need to empower Muslim women within the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

how do we go about this?

00:41:29--> 00:41:31

I leave you with seven points.

00:41:32--> 00:41:33

Number one,

00:41:35--> 00:41:39

collective Toba or two colorable law

00:41:40--> 00:41:53

under this pressure, we need to come close to Allah subhanaw taala when you feel the heat of evil around you, turn to Allah subhanaw taala increase your ibadah

00:41:54--> 00:42:02

increase your sadaqa increase your remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala put the name of Allah on your lips all during the day.

00:42:03--> 00:42:05

Come closer in the Sunnah.

00:42:06--> 00:42:19

Put Islam into your life come closer to Allah because Allah has power over all things. And if the crowd gets big, if they put fear in our hearts, we say what Allah said has Spooner law when near Milwaukee.

00:42:20--> 00:42:29

Allah is the one who will take account of us and ultimately allows the best to protect. So we need to come close to Allah subhanaw taala

00:42:30--> 00:42:32

and repent to

00:42:33--> 00:43:15

working unity. We need a collective working unity amongst Muslims. Yes, there are differences. There are differences in all parts of creation. The flowers are different colors. The birds are different colors. It is my dream and I may be naive. But it is my dream and it is my dream. inshallah, in this younger generation, the Muslims will stand together, Salafi, Sufi, Tablighi, a kwani, his Buta Hurriya, all of the jamaats Let us stand together based on the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam.

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

How can we bring about this unity?

00:43:25--> 00:43:28

Allah is already united us, we have the same faith.

00:43:29--> 00:43:34

If we focus on the main issues, we're all the same.

00:43:35--> 00:43:45

The minor issue if there's an issue in football or a minor issue, then you give naseeha give advice to your brother and sister. If they if they disagree, make do

00:43:47--> 00:43:57

but don't scandalize another Muslim, don't attack the honor of another Muslim. So we've already been united, we've been united in Nevada, in worship.

00:43:59--> 00:44:37

And so we need a broad working base. We have differences in our methodology. But when it comes to Muslims, if Muslims under are under attack, all of us need to stand shoulder to shoulder drop your differences and come together in the shorter then you will be filling fulfilling the message of Allah. How can I say this? One of the great Sahaba Judea ibn Abdullah Al de la Juan, he said by yaku Rasulullah alayhi salatu salam, O Allah, a common salaat where he is a cat oneness. liquidly Muslim.

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

He said, I took the bait. I took the pledge to the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him to establish prayers to establish Zakah and to give advice and sincerity and support to every Muslim he didn't say Muslim either. Be

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

He didn't say a Qureshi Muslim, and Arab Muslim, American Muslim. He said luckily Muslim.

00:45:10--> 00:45:14

So we're already united. So we need to come together

00:45:15--> 00:45:16

in a working coalition.

00:45:17--> 00:45:23

Number three, we need to empower Muslim women in the leadership

00:45:25--> 00:45:39

Alhamdulillah for this conference, but I'm tired of conferences where they say there's a special section for the women and you will have a special conference, what is the topic, the topic is Islamic cooking,

00:45:40--> 00:45:42

what is the latest latest samosa?

00:45:45--> 00:46:01

Let the sister study to heat study Tafseer, study, study, study everything that the brothers are studying. And you will find in many cases, they will come with conclusions that are closer to the truth than ours.

00:46:09--> 00:46:23

We need to focus on the younger generation provide halau alternatives halau alternatives for 21st century lifestyle, recreation,

00:46:25--> 00:46:54

sports, career development, we need to have a practical program to get the youth involved and to help them to make decisions. So they're not caught up by drug dealers or gangsters. Number five, we need to continue to be aware of the crises of the Muslim world and actively involve ourselves in standing up for the Muslims anywhere on this planet.

00:46:55--> 00:47:00

We are all part of one oma. And we need to at least raise our voice.

00:47:01--> 00:47:09

At least stand up wherever we can. Number six, a special emphasis on a Tao

00:47:10--> 00:47:48

outreach, it needs to be part of our program. Now is the time. If the people are confused about Islam, take it out to them. Take the court and to the people we have started a program discover the court and we want 200,000 core ends. We'll take it out to the people a translation in the English language or whatever is the language. Take it to the people that don't understand what Islam is before it is too late. is no more profits to come. If you're waiting for a magette did or the Maha de only Allah knows when he will appear.

00:47:50--> 00:47:53

And number seven relevancy,

00:47:54--> 00:48:14

relevant solutions to the problems of society. We need Islamic solution to HIV AIDS, racism, drug abuse, polytheism, atheism, sexual perversion, we have the solutions, we are holding gems of wisdom.

00:48:15--> 00:48:32

And we cannot allow fear to stop us to go forward in the time of the Prophet peace be upon him. When the battle got hot. When the enemy was close, when fear was there, the Muslims didn't run away, they ran toward the enemies.

00:48:34--> 00:48:37

We need to go forward, living Islam.

00:48:38--> 00:48:45

Live Islam shows the people what this message is about. In conclusion,

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

we are living in times of deception.

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

Our name is being distorted.

00:48:54--> 00:48:57

Our beloved porque en is under attack.

00:48:59--> 00:49:02

And it seems like it's becoming a profession

00:49:03--> 00:49:07

to distort things about Islam. Anything that happens?

00:49:09--> 00:49:15

A plane crashed in Toronto, Canada recently because of the weather. Was it a bomb? Was it a terrorist?

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

Everything is a terrorist who's a terrorist.

00:49:21--> 00:49:23

It is a time of deception.

00:49:24--> 00:49:28

But I say to the liars, I say to the liars.

00:49:30--> 00:49:36

What the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him set and his time a man in the middle of Arabia

00:49:38--> 00:49:39

named Hussein Lima.

00:49:41--> 00:49:54

He wrote a letter to the messenger of peace be upon him and he said, from Hussein Lima, the Messenger of Allah, to Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah. You take one part of Arabia, and I'll take the other part.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

The prophet SAW some of them wrote back, min Mohammed rasulillah. Allah has

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

Sato Salam ala musei Lima Al Khattab

00:50:05--> 00:50:07

to musei Lima the great liar.

00:50:08--> 00:50:10

What did the Prophet peace be upon him said

00:50:12--> 00:50:16

and we say it again today in this world this is not a political struggle.

00:50:18--> 00:50:41

Allah azza wa jal will decide, and the Prophet peace be upon him said in the law he, Ud suhar man Yasha Abadi will rip bottled water clean. This earth belongs to Allah, and He will give it to whom he pleases from his worship is and the best reward. The ultimate success

00:50:42--> 00:51:31

is for those who have Taqwa, those who have the consciousness of Allah. I leave you with these words. I asked a lot to have mercy on me to have mercy on you. I asked a lot to protect the children of the Omar Mohammed Salah. I asked a lot to protect the women of the Omar Mohammed Salah. I asked a lot to protect the men of the Omar Mohamed Salah. I asked a lot to raise up a leader who would take our misguided political states from darkness into light and asked a lot to help us to be with him. And to be with all those who stand for La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah alayhi salatu salam, may Allah make our last words our best words may like May Allah make all of us die with kelemen La

00:51:31--> 00:51:40

ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah on our lips akula Kali Hilda was stuck for lolly walakum wa salaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
