Allah said that when an evil, injustice is done to you, you should defend yourself.
You don't stay back and lay on the ground. You defend yourself whichever way you can Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said, if you see evil things, change it with your hands. If you can't do that, then at least say something.
So you saw something evil happening, you couldn't do nothing, but say something. And if you can't do that, then feel it in your heart. And that is the lowest form of faith.
But the point is, we defend ourselves, and we defend righteousness in the face of evil.
And that will be so important as we come into the world, that we be of those who want a society that stands up for the rights of all of its individuals, the First Nations, people who are suffering in the reservations, those people of African origin, those Hispanic people, those who may be poor, from whatever class that is, that we help and we stand up for those who are in need. Those who are oppressed, it's very important concept as part of survival in the world that we are coming into, because it looks like the rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer. And so therefore, we will all have to stand up together. We will have to hold hands with each other. We
will have to reach out to people regardless of their religion, regardless of their color, regardless of their language. We need to reach out to other people in this world so that we can be one beautiful human family.
This is the great lesson that has been given by the Last Testament, the Quran
