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

all praises due to Allah, Lord of the worlds.

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

And surely the best reward

00:00:54--> 00:00:55

is for those who have Taqwa.

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

And surely there is no animosity, except for the oppressor.

00:01:02--> 00:01:32

And I be a witness that allows one and has no partners. And that Mohammed the son of Abdullah, is a servant and his last messenger. And may Allah constantly and always send peace and blessings to Mohammed and to his family and his companions, and all those who call to his way and establish the Sunnah to the day of judgment as to what follows who Sequim will not see be taqwa Allah azza wa jal was 71.

00:01:34--> 00:01:40

Allah subhanho wa Taala you're cool. Yeah, are you Hello Dina Armando amanu

intertitle la jolla con photo con where you cafe uncom City article where your fellow como la de la de

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

I begin by cautioning myself and you

00:01:55--> 00:02:04

that we should have the consciousness of Allah we should have Taqwa. And this is the fear of Allah combined with hope.

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

The balance consciousness that affects the believer in his economic life, his social life, his political life, in all spheres of his existence, and that we should hear the words of Allah and we should obey.

00:02:22--> 00:02:30

Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us in the eighth chapter of the Quran called circle unfiled in verse 29

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

Oh you who believe. If you have the consciousness of Allah, if you keep your duty to Allah, He will grant you a criteria

00:02:41--> 00:03:12

and will release you from your sins and forgive you. And Allah is the Lord of great bounty. In this verse, Allah has revealed to us that if you are in a condition of belief, oh you who believe if you have Taqwa in tough, tough Oh la, La Jolla come for a cannon. If you have this taqwa. If this consciousness is surrounding you, and affecting your life, He will make for you a photon.

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

He will make a criterion.

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

And this farrakhan is one

00:03:20--> 00:03:33

understanding, which the great scholars of Islam have researched and spoke about throughout the ages. And it is an important concept for us today, which connects us with the taqwa

00:03:36--> 00:03:45

one of the great scholars of Islam, Imams, Shakuni Rahim Allah and His federal qadeer. He said that for a con,

00:03:46--> 00:03:58

can be looked upon in different ways. One is that photo con can mean the battle kulu workqueue tell basa err wustl hedaya

00:03:59--> 00:04:00

that this farrakhan

00:04:02--> 00:04:07

is a way, or what comes out of it is that the hearts are made firm.

00:04:09--> 00:04:21

And that you would gain power of your site, you'd have insight into the affairs around you. And also you would have the best of guidance. And surely in the times that we are living in today,

00:04:22--> 00:05:00

with the great crises going on on an international level, with the environment turning against us, with the economies of the world now, in a state of collapse. It is crucial for believers for all people, but especially for those who are Muslims, that we have this strengthening of the hearts allow would keep our hearts firm in the face of disbelief, and that we would have bosiet to be able to look into matters not to look at the superficial aspect of things, but to begin to look into the deep meaning

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

that are coming out of the events that are going around around us. And of course and above all, that we would have the guidance from Allah in these times. Another meaning of farrakhan his motto for rakuen metaphoric una de bien el Huck wallbottle. It is what you can separate by which you separate the truth from falsehood. And also it is a Maharaja Minar shubho hat. It is a way out of things that are doubtful. This is another important point, because one of the great fitness that we are facing today, one of the great trials and tribulations are the fears that are doubtful of fears that we're not sure about a gray area which is around us. And so having the taqwa gives that ability to

00:05:57--> 00:06:08

separate the truth from the falsehood when the person is connected with Allah subhanaw taala. And it also will give you a way out of those things that appear to be doubtful to you.

00:06:09--> 00:06:17

And the last point is a netjet min Colima Taha funa it is an escape from all that you fear.

00:06:19--> 00:06:35

And surely today, with the changes that the Muslim world is going through, we are in a time where fear is being used as a weapon against the Muslims in the Muslim world. It is a hot war.

00:06:36--> 00:06:47

Millions of people are now suffering, some are facing death, only because they say la ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah alayhi salaatu wa Salaam

00:06:48--> 00:07:04

in the Western countries, the battle may not appear to be a hot one. But it is a battle for the minds. And we need to be aware of this that no matter where we are, that there are forces that would try to take us off the path.

00:07:05--> 00:07:35

When you look at what is happening in the world, we have to realize that if you are on the ground in those areas, there's a different understanding than what comes over the media to you to what is perceived by the rest of the world. Today we see the nations talking about Kosova. They are talking about Albania. And when they speak about that they are saying that the Serbians who had decimated the Bosnian people, only because they were Muslims.

00:07:36--> 00:08:01

In moving against the people of cassava, it is stated internationally that these are ethnic Albanians. This is the word being used, but they're not ethnic Albanians. They are Muslims. It is a Muslim area, and cassava is the site of one of the great struggles in Islamic history. And 1389 ad.

00:08:02--> 00:08:23

A union of Balkan states, Eastern Europe of Crusaders gathered to get gathered together an army of over 100,000 soldiers, and they came into Eastern Europe to destroy the Ottoman Empire to put out the light of Islam completely.

00:08:24--> 00:08:58

And the Muslims under the leadership of Baya z the first came with only 60,000 believers. They met them at Kosova, and they defeated them with the help of Allah. In 1448, another set of Crusaders, with over 50,000 soldiers from all over Europe came to Kosovo again to destroy the Muslims and Sultan mirage. And the Muslims at the time gathered together and with a small party of believers, they were able to defeat the Crusaders in Kosovo.

00:08:59--> 00:09:44

So when the Serbians are attacking Kosovo, they are not attacking ethnic Albanians. They are attacking into the heartlands of Islam. They are trying to destroy the memory of the Muslims. When you look at the struggle going on in that part of the world, you find that when the Serbians bombed the Bosnians, they did not just bomb soldiers, they destroyed museums, they destroyed libraries, they destroyed schools. Why would you destroy a museum because when you destroy the history of a people, you are destroying the memory of their culture. And so what is happening now is a struggle not just militarily,

00:09:45--> 00:09:54

but it is a psychological cultural struggle for the mines and the future of the Muslim world. When you look now in the Sudan,

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

and we found that the bombs came and blew up a factory in the Sudan

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

That was making pharmaceutical products, anti malarial pills, antibiotics. Why would they bomb the Sudan? Why would they put out articles in the newspaper claiming slavery in the Sudan.

00:10:15--> 00:10:27

That is because according to the World Health Organization, and the International agricultural organizations, there are three places in the world

00:10:28--> 00:11:21

that can be the breadbasket of the planet in the next century, because there is so much open land that can be used to feed people, Australia, Canada, and the Sudan. Also, because the Sudan represents the gateway from the African continent, into the Middle East, and the Sudanese people are blessed with a generous character, the knowledge of Islam, and within the country, there are all of the climates of Africa. There is also the type of movement that is going on, where the people have intended to set up an Islamic State. So do not think that Sudan is being bombed, because of germ warfare or chemical warfare. It is a struggle against a possible raising up of Islam in the Muslim

00:11:21--> 00:11:54

world. in Algeria, we find a constant confusing confusion coming over the media. And we heard about Muslims carrying out slaughter, killing women and children, even in Ramadan. When the truth came out about Algeria, when the reality came out from the people themselves, we found out that what is actually happening in Algeria, is that the people who wanted to have Islam as the government to rule the land,

00:11:56--> 00:12:44

that they are under attack, they had been put into prison. And when they resisted, the villages that supported them, are now being attacked. People are being slotted, and some of the Algerian soldiers themselves, who went into Europe testified in London, that they were given psychedelic drugs, false bids, false robes, jellybeans, and they were sent into the area after the murder was taken place at taking place, then the Muslims were blamed for the slaughter of the people. It is the height of wickedness, not only would you kill the people who supported the Islamic movement, but then you blame the Muslims for carrying out that murder.

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

And so, what is happening reminds us of the time of Musa alayhis salaam

00:12:52--> 00:13:32

in the time of Musa alayhis salaam, the pharaoh the Fed was approached by his council people and they said to the fed on what will you do about Moosa and Farah own acid and this is enshrined inserted out off verse 127. Carlos a new katello abna home when a stallion Isa home was in FOCA, home car hero, Musa Pharaoh and answered, we will kill their young men, and we will keep the women alive, for surely we have irresistible power over them.

00:13:33--> 00:14:30

Musa alayhis salam responded to this. How did he answer? Did he speak about getting weapons? Did he speak about a huge army? He answered Karla musala. For me He is a new biller he was biru in de la he UD Swami Yasha Abadi while Aki bottle and Mata Ki Musa answer answerd said to his people, seek your help from Allah and be patient. Surely the earth is allows and he gives it to whom he pleases from his worshipers. And the best reward is for those who have Taqwa, who have the consciousness of Allah. So Moosa did not look out at the superficial aspect. He did not say the best reward the victory is for the a huge army for new weapons. He said, What are the battle Mottaki? He looked

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

inside of the individual. We cry for change. We hope that things would go on, that would change our whole situation. But Allah has told us clearly in the Quran, in Allahu Allah you Rama be Coleman, what are you how you do ma B and foresee him. Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves. And when we look outside to the Muslim world with all of the

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

weapons, with large armies, countries with billions of dollars in the economy.

00:15:08--> 00:15:25

countries who have intellectuals, but yet you still have humiliation in Bosnia, you still have humiliation in Kashmir. You still have attacked and humiliation in Philistine. Why is that? Because something on the inside.

00:15:26--> 00:15:43

Something needs to be changed on the inside. The Prophet peace be upon him said there is a lump of flesh inside of you. If it goes right, the whole body goes right. If it is corrupted and evil, the whole body becomes corrupted. And that is Kob. It is the heart.

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

We have arrogance in our ranks.

00:15:49--> 00:16:02

We have pride. Some people are proud because of their nationality. Because I speak a certain language, or I come from a certain country. Some people are proud because of their, their skin color,

00:16:03--> 00:16:17

or proud because of their family. They say I come from a great family of scholars. But if you come from a family of scholars, and you're not practicing Islam, do you expect them to save you it will not happen.

00:16:19--> 00:16:33

And so the change comes from within. And those countries who have billions of dollars and they throw food away after their war leamas after their, their their gatherings, there are other countries where the people are starving to death.

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

And it is not until

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

the filth of nationalism

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

and komiya and tribalism

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

and greed and conceit,

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

love of self

00:16:50--> 00:16:59

anger, uncontrollable anger with each other. Until that leaves us we cannot expect the help from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

In this country,

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

it is important for us to remember that although the struggle may not appear to be a hot struggle, it is a struggle for the minds and it can change to a hot struggle overnight. What many people do not realize about Islam in this part of the world is that Muslims have a long history in the Americas. There is even historical proof. There are Muslim historians and geographers Elon Musk Rudy even patea

00:17:35--> 00:18:26

al idrisi altomare, who spoke about the journeys of Muslims to the Americas before Columbus, that Muslims came to this part of the world and they settled and they actually mixed with the native people here in Florida. We know about the Seminole nation that the Seminole nation from early times, was influenced by Muslims, and is coming out clearer and clearer that the Iroquois Confederacy that the Algonquin people that the Cherokee Nation that many of the first nation people actually had contact with Muslims, who came from the east, who left the teachings of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam who taught them the last revelation. And this was destroyed in the Spanish period of

00:18:26--> 00:19:26

conquest of Conquistador days. What many people also do not understand is that when African people were being brought to the Americas, from West Africa and from Central Africa, over 30%, almost one in every three of the African people who are brought to the west were Muslims. Fulani, hausa mandinka, Wolof had come to the shores. And amongst these Muslims is captured prisoners of war, who came to the Americas were Aloma were great scholars of Islam. It has come to the surface now, writings showing a great slave revolt in Brazil, in a place called Bahia. In this area, the Muslims had literally captured a section of the country, and they were ruling with Sharia. And the

00:19:26--> 00:19:54

Portuguese gave them boats and said return to Africa. We can't deal with you anymore. Go back and they returned to West Africa. And you can pray in Nigeria right now in a Brazilian mustard. in Suriname. Touch Guyana. The great revolt was being led by a man named called out to be his general was called Zamzam like the Zamzam water that we drink in Mecca, in Jamaica,

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

in the 1800s, a great revolt came in the Manchester

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

The province the Muslims were passing a document in between themselves in Arabic called Elva thika.

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

It called them to resistance. It called them to stand up for their religion. And it is connected with the writings of great West African scholars like shirtless man Dan fodio Rahim Allah

00:20:22--> 00:20:45

in America, a number of ratings have come to the surface. And we recognize the fact that in the south, especially in Georgia, in the Carolinas on the coast, that there were many Muslim families, there were prominent scholars, some of the writings coming out now. One is Omar bin siete, Rahim Allah, who wrote

00:20:46--> 00:21:33

from the Quran, he also wrote a reseller sections of a reseller, which is a work of Maliki fic. It is a work of jurisprudence, and he traces his lineage is snad his train of transmission back to the great Maliki scholars of West Africa to North Africa and right to the Prophet Mohammed alayhi salaatu wa Salaam Are you Eben Sulaiman, another scholar who was captured and brought to Georgia, Ibrahim Abdul Rahman, who was captured and brought to Mississippi and Amir, a leader of his region, yellow Muhammad, a Muslim, West African, who lived to be 120 years old, the oldest man

00:21:34--> 00:22:22

in the recorded records 70 years he spent in slavery, and finally he was released. And so there are many people that we recognize, but the pain of slavery mother separated from father, you could not read the Arabic language, you could not speak your language, you could not fast in Ramadan, you could not make your salaat and so only a memory was left but by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. The descendants of those Muslims are now returning to Islam. And this is not by coincidence. And anybody who comes to this part of the world, we should recognize this is not by chance. This is the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala also economic migration. Muslims came into this part of the world in

00:22:22--> 00:22:25

large numbers in the 19th century.

00:22:26--> 00:22:52

In the 20th century, they settled in Canada, in the United States in Mexico, in Central America, in South America. In Venezuela, there are over 100,000 Muslims. In Argentina, there are 1000s of Muslims. In Brazil, there are more Lebanese and Syrians than in Lebanon, and Syria, living in Brazil.

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

And there are masjids.

00:22:56--> 00:23:13

Our own map testifies to this Mecca, California, by the DOD, Arizona, Medina, Washington, Medina, Texas, Medina, New York, Koren, Louisiana,

00:23:15--> 00:23:24

Palestine, Texas, Sudan, Texas, Granada, Colorado, Damascus, Georgia.

00:23:25--> 00:24:17

And there is a long history but these Muslims not being able to hold on to their faith, not having relevant faith to pass on to their children got melted down in the melting pot of American society. And that meltdown process is going on right now. And if we do not establish the proper institutions, whereby the children can understand Islam well below, then they can also melt down in the melting process. What is happening is a cover up a cover up in history, a cover up in the media today, where people will think about Islam and they think about violence. But somebody would ask, how could they do that? How could the media do this? How could American society do this? This is the land of

00:24:17--> 00:24:59

liberty. It is the land of freedom. How could they do this in a country like this? It is reported by Obama screwed up by Obama I'm sorry rhodiola Juan, he reported that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam has said in mimma drunkenness, min Kalam and Nabu oola either lamb testa he first nama shatta robocars in this hadith the Prophet peace be upon him said that which has come to us from the early prophetic generations is this. If you do not have shame

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

If you do not have shame,

00:25:03--> 00:25:11

then you can do anything, go to anything if you don't have shame, look what is happening in America, in the White House,

00:25:13--> 00:25:30

women being molested in the White House. And people now coming publicly with no shame, talking about the issue with no shame, people are disgusted about this all around the world. And it shows if this is the head of state, who would carry this out

00:25:31--> 00:25:46

in the leading house in the country, then what can possibly be done in the other houses. And also, if he is capable of doing this, and the others around him, then he is capable of anything.

00:25:47--> 00:26:01

This is the knowledge that has come to us from the early prophetic revelation. And so a cover up is happening. And recently, information has been released to us that in November,

00:26:02--> 00:26:05

a movie will be released called the siege.

00:26:06--> 00:26:38

And we know the effect that movies have on this society. Some people live out the movies, some people are using the movies as a source of brainwashing for the general population. Even the president is affected by the movies. What is the movie of the seach in this movie, starring Bruce Willis and Denzel Washington, to famous people in Hollywood, in this movie,

00:26:39--> 00:26:56

supposedly in New York City, there is a danger of chemical germ warfare to the people in America. And so the leading government agencies, the FBI, the CIA, and the United States Army are called in

00:26:57--> 00:27:23

to deal with the terrorists who are the terrorists, Muslims. And in this movie, from the information that has come to us already about it, it is showing Muslims being dragged out of muskets, women in hijab, men in their robes of prayer, dragged out of the masjid and put into concentration camps.

00:27:24--> 00:27:39

Those of us who lived in the 60s who lived during the time when the cities were burning down, recognize the fact that there are concentration camps that was set up for the riots, do not think that the same buildings could not be opened up again.

00:27:41--> 00:28:04

If war is declared, that anybody connected with the party, to whom war is made, is subject to special laws. The Japanese Americans and Canadians in world war two were put into concentration camps, even though they were loyal to the country. And so what we are seeing now is the tip of the iceberg.

00:28:06--> 00:28:16

And it is crucial for Muslims at this time to take advantage of every moment that we have. We don't have time to waste.

00:28:17--> 00:28:26

We don't have time to be falling into petty disputes between individuals. Are you part of my organization or not?

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

Are you part of my school of thought?

00:28:30--> 00:28:45

In some cases, a person came to me and said can I Hanafi who follows Imam Abu hanifa of the listener can 100 feet marry a sharpie? These are two schools of thought. It is all Muslims. Alexandre ojama

00:28:46--> 00:28:58

but yet the question is raised like this petty issues about how you make your prayer. If you move your finger constantly in sitting position, or you do and hold it out one time.

00:28:59--> 00:29:24

The reality is is the properties of Islam said sallu Kamara I to Mooney, who suddenly pray as you have seen me pray. And so any system that we use, which is in line with the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah His latest Salaam is Maqbool. It is accepted by the great Allah and the great scholars of Islam were teachers and students of each other.

00:29:25--> 00:29:32

And so we need to look at our present situation. We need to develop new leadership.

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

Many of the movements coming out of the 60s, the 70s and the 80s have now reached a low point. We need to develop the type of leadership that brings all Muslims together,

00:29:46--> 00:29:56

regardless of your organization, regardless of your nationality, regardless of your school of thought. If you are from the people of the Qibla

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

then we need to come together if we

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

are on the front lines in a hot war and the enemy is shooting? Would you turn to another Muslim and say, I don't know whether I can be with you or not are you from my school of thought are you and my organization, you don't have time for that.

00:30:18--> 00:30:22

And the reality is our world is turning into a frontline situation.

00:30:24--> 00:30:27

If it's not a hot war, it is the minds of the children.

00:30:29--> 00:30:42

And so dynamic leadership, leadership, which is humble, but not weak, humbled to believe is and your strength is against those who attack the religion of Islam.

00:30:43--> 00:30:52

firmness and courage, also knowledgeable in Sharia knowledgeable in the Islamic way.

00:30:54--> 00:31:10

It is important for us now to study our religion, take our spare time and study because if we don't study it, somebody else is going to come along and tell us what the religion is. And we have the opportunity amongst us we have Arabic speaking knowledgeable people amongst us now.

00:31:12--> 00:31:22

So study the religion as much as you possibly can. But the study of the religion should not take us back 1400 years and leave us back.

00:31:23--> 00:31:26

If the Friday could put you to sleep.

00:31:27--> 00:31:40

That's not the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. When he gave his sermon, his eyes would get read, he raised his voice, and he would speak to the believers as though there was an army and back of the mountain, right and back of them.

00:31:41--> 00:31:49

So the Friday Hooda the leaves that we have teachings should be relevant to what is happening in society.

00:31:50--> 00:32:04

The Islam we are learning should be relevant to the life that we are facing in the streets. And so relevant institutions need to be developed. We are emphasizing now throughout our communities, education,

00:32:05--> 00:32:22

education as a key to our community, especially for the children that day would have a chance to learn to read the Quran in Arabic, learn the basic sources of Islam learn the basic elements, the fundamentals of Islam.

00:32:25--> 00:33:16

Also, we are setting up social service agencies. The Masjid need to be supported now, by institutions that are sensitive to Muslims and are dealing with the social problems of the families. The pressure of being Muslim is breaking up families. economic pressure is breaking up families, teenagers are running away. Children's Aid societies are taking Muslims out of our homes. And so we need to address this we can't bury our heads in the sand. We have to address the issues that are happening in the families. Because if the family is weak, then the whole society is weak. If there is no love, and no Islamic State in the home, you will never get an Islamic State on the outside.

00:33:18--> 00:33:37

Finally, our movement needs to have a new approach, a new approach to technology, a new approach to life, where our spirituality, we're out to heat. the oneness of Allah is the Center for everything that we do.

00:33:38--> 00:33:54

If we are a doctor, if we are a lawyer, if we are a scientist tauheed can influence us that any scientific development that we make, should benefit life and should not destroy life.

00:33:55--> 00:34:03

Any work that we are doing, should not be destroying our community. We cannot sell ourselves cheap.

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

That the way we earn our money, the way we spend our money.

00:34:09--> 00:34:45

We have to have a new approach to this now, bringing in the best of both worlds. So to allow it bless us and give us the strength to deal with this crisis, which is coming over the horizon. May Allah subhanaw taala clean the hearts of the believers. May Allah subhanaw taala protect the women and the children of Islam. And may Allah give us the strength to stand in the face of this kofa and disbelief and give us the best in this life and the next Apolo Polly howdah will our stock for lolly welcome.

00:35:18--> 00:35:36

The Prophet Mohammed alayhi salatu was Salam was blessed with jameela Kalam the ability to say a great meaning, in a few words, also blessed with knowledge, where he did not speak from himself. He spoke from the revelation

00:35:37--> 00:36:20

and from his legacy is was Seiya that he has left with us. I want to bring a tradition to you today. And if you can't remember anything, from what I have said, if it is not clear, then this is the most important thing I can bring to you today is the words of our messenger alayhi salatu salam. This Hadith which is not so well known, in the ranks of the Muslims is authentic hadith, and jameela, Jamil. And in this hadith reported by Ali Ibn Abi taalib, kurama, la wacha, one of the great Sahaba, the cousin of the Prophet peace be upon him, the one who married his daughter Fatima.

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

Ali reports.

00:36:24--> 00:36:34

When I took possessions of the weapons of the Messenger of Allah, I found in the hilt of the sword, a parchment,

00:36:35--> 00:37:04

something written on a scroll, it was saying the following words. Now Alia but I'll be taalib was a person who could read and write Arabic was an oral culture at that time, but there were a few people who were writing down a script. And r Lee was one of the people who was of those who were lettered in Mecca. And so the Prophet peace be upon him who was not lettered himself must have had somebody write this because he knew that Allah would read it.

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

It is it was sia.

00:37:07--> 00:37:44

It is a legacy he is leaving. And so Ali opens up the hilt of the sword. And he finds this and he brings it to us. The Prophet peace be upon him delivered this message. Still men kata aka will acen element Asahi Lake Walpole, Huck wallow Allah Nasik These are three important axioms for us to remember. The Prophet peace be upon him has left us these words. He said, Keep relations with those who cut you off.

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

And do good to people, even if they harm you.

00:37:51--> 00:37:55

And speak the truth, even if it is against yourself.

00:37:57--> 00:38:05

Now what would they expect in the in the health of a sort of fundamentalist Muslim, as they would say today? What would they expect written on a weapon.

00:38:07--> 00:38:12

This is the Messenger of Allah to keep relations with those who cut you off.

00:38:14--> 00:38:43

Many of us accept Islam and we cut ourselves off from our families. We think we have become holy overnight. Allah has given us the Shahada. But that family, your mother and your father raised you. So we should respect our parents. We don't follow them in shirk. We don't follow them in polytheism and disbelief, but we respect them and keep relations with them. The Prophet peace be upon him, when he went to a doctor if

00:38:45--> 00:38:52

to give them the message, they stoned him till the blood poured down in his sandals. And the angel of the mountains came

00:38:54--> 00:39:05

and gave him permission to destroy the whole city. But the prophet peace be upon him told him in words, that maybe there would be somebody who would accept Islam, maybe there is some good in them, leave them.

00:39:07--> 00:39:12

And he lived to see the people of Thai have come into Islam in crowds.

00:39:14--> 00:39:20

That is the type of strength and attitude we have to have. Secondly, do good even to those who harm you.

00:39:21--> 00:39:29

Somebody is doing wrong to you. It doesn't change our character. We don't do evil in order to correct evil.

00:39:30--> 00:39:36

We do good to correct evil and maybe doing correct doing good. May be stopping that person

00:39:38--> 00:39:40

and maybe putting that person out of commission.

00:39:41--> 00:39:59

That may be good, but we do not do evil to correct evil because it is the character of the Muslims. It is the patience and character which spread Islam to the four corners of the world. And lastly, which is an important point for conflict resolution.

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

Speak the truth, even if it is against yourself. Most of us will speak the truth if it is for us. If it's what we believe, then we speak the truth. But if it's against us, how many speak the truth. This is not an ego struggle. We are all believers together. And when we come together on Juma we should thank Allah for putting a man and faith in our hearts for giving us taqwa. And may Allah subhanaw taala. Always keep this amen and taqwa in our hearts. May Allah subhanaw taala give this taqwa and this Eman to our children and our children's children. And may Allah subhanaw taala especially protect the women and the children of Islam. May Allah give strength and dignity and

00:40:47--> 00:41:36

courage to the men and the leadership of Islam. And may Allah give us the understanding to always send peace and blessings to Mohammed for in the law of Malacca to use aluna. Allah Nabil.

00:42:43--> 00:43:26

showing a great slave revolt in Brazil, in a place called Bahia. In this area, the Muslims had literally captured a section of the country. And they were ruling with Sharia. And the Portuguese gave them boats and said returned to Africa. We can't deal with you anymore. Go back and they returned to West Africa. And you can pray in Nigeria right now in a Brazilian mustard in Suriname, touch Ghana. The great revolt was being led by a man named called out to be his general was called Zamzam like the Zamzam water that we drink in Mecca, in Jamaica,

00:43:27--> 00:43:39

in the 1800s, a great revolt came in the Manchester province, the Muslims were passing a document in between themselves in Arabic called El watseka.

00:43:40--> 00:43:52

It called them to resistance. It called them to stand up for their religion. And it is connected with the writings of great West African scholars like shacharis man den folio, Rahim Allah

00:43:54--> 00:44:47

in America, a number of writings have come to the surface. And we recognize the fact that in the south, especially in Georgia, in the Carolinas on the coast, that there were many Muslim families, there were prominent scholars, some of the writings coming out now. One is Omar bin siete, Rahim Allah, who wrote from the Quran, he also wrote a reseller sections of a reseller, which is a work of Maliki fic. It is a work of jurisprudence. And he traces his lineage is not his train of transmission, back to the great Maliki scholars of West Africa, to North Africa and right to the Prophet Mohammed alayhi salatu salam Are you even Sulaiman another scholar who was captured and

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

brought to Georgia, Ibrahim Abdul Rahman, who was captured and brought to Mississippi and Amir, a leader of his region, yellow Muhammad, a Muslim West African

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

Who lived to be 120 years old, the oldest man

00:45:06--> 00:45:53

in the recorded records 70 years he spent in slavery, and finally he was released. And so there are many people that we recognize, but the pain of slavery, mother separated from father, you could not read the Arabic language, you could not speak your language, you could not fast in Ramadan, you could not make your salaat and so only a memory was left but by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. The descendants of those Muslims are now returning to Islam. And this is not by coincidence, and anybody who comes to this part of the world would should recognize this is not by chance. This is the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also economic migration. Muslims came into this part of the

00:45:53--> 00:46:24

world in large numbers in the 19th century. In the 20th century, they settled in Canada, in the United States in Mexico, in Central America. In South America. In Venezuela, there are over 100,000 Muslims. In Argentina, there are 1000s of Muslims. In Brazil, there are more Lebanese and Syrians than in Lebanon, and Syria, living in Brazil.

00:46:25--> 00:46:27

And there are masjids.

00:46:28--> 00:46:45

Our own map testifies to this. Mecca, California, Baba dad, Arizona, Medina, Washington, Medina, Texas, Medina, New York, Quran, Louisiana,

00:46:47--> 00:46:56

Palestine, Texas, Sudan, Texas, Granada, Colorado, Damascus, Georgia.

00:46:57--> 00:47:49

And there is a long history but these Muslims not being able to hold on to their faith, not having relevant faith to pass on to their children got melted down in the melting pot of American society. And that meltdown process is going on right now. And if we do not establish the proper institutions, whereby the children can understand Islam well below, then they could also melt down in the melting process. What is happening is a cover up a cover up in history, a cover up in the media today, where people will think about Islam and they think about violence. But somebody would ask, how could they do that? How could the media do this? How could American society do this? This is the land of

00:47:49--> 00:48:15

liberty. It is the land of freedom. How could they do this in a country like this? It is reported by Abby Massoud occupy Obama I'm sorry rhodiola Juan, he reported that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam has said in mimma drunkenness, min Kalam and Nabu oola. Either Lanchester he first now

00:48:16--> 00:48:31

robocars. In this Hadith, the prophet peace be upon him said, that which has come to us from the early prophetic generations is this. If you do not have shame.

00:48:32--> 00:48:34

If you do not have shame,

00:48:35--> 00:48:43

then you can do anything, go to anything if you don't have shame. Look what is happening in America, in the White House,

00:48:45--> 00:49:02

women being molested in the White House. And people now coming publicly with no shame. Talking about the issue with no shame people are disgusted about this all around the world. And it shows if this is the head of state, who would carry this out

00:49:03--> 00:49:18

in the leading house in the country, then what can possibly be done in the other houses. And also if he is capable of doing this and the others around him, then he is capable of anything.

00:49:19--> 00:49:27

This is the knowledge that has come to us from the early prophetic revelation. And so a cover up is happening.

00:49:28--> 00:49:33

And recently, information has been released to us that in November,

00:49:34--> 00:49:37

a movie will be released called the siege.

00:49:38--> 00:49:59

And we know the effect that movies have on this society. Some people live out the movies, some people are using the movies as a source of brainwashing for the general population. Even the president is affected by the movies. What is the movie of the siege?

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

In this movie, starring Bruce Willis and Denzel Washington, two famous people in Hollywood, in this movie,

00:50:11--> 00:50:28

supposedly in New York City, there is a danger of chemical germ warfare to the people in America. And so the leading government agencies, the FBI, the CIA, and the United States Army are called in

00:50:29--> 00:50:55

to deal with the terrorists who are the terrorists, Muslims. And in this movie, from the information that has come to us already about it, it is showing Muslims being dragged out of muskets, women in hijab, men in their robes of prayer, dragged out of the masjid and put into concentration camps.

00:50:56--> 00:51:11

Those of us who lived in the 60s who lived during the time when the cities were burning down, recognize the fact that there are concentration camps that was set up for the riots, do not think that the same buildings could not be opened up again.

00:51:13--> 00:51:36

If war is declared, then anybody connected with the party to whom war is made, is subject to special laws. The Japanese Americans and Canadians in world war two were put into concentration camps, even though they were loyal to the country. And so what we are seeing now is the tip of the iceberg.

00:51:38--> 00:51:48

And it is crucial for Muslims at this time to take advantage of every moment that we have. We don't have time to waste.

00:51:49--> 00:51:58

We don't have time to be falling into petty disputes between individuals. Are you part of my organization or not?

00:51:59--> 00:52:01

Are you part of my school of thought?

00:52:02--> 00:52:16

In some cases, a person came to me and said, Can I Hanafi who follows Imam Abu hanifa of the listener can 100 feet marry a Shafi? These are two schools of thought it is all Muslims. Alexandre well, Gemma.

00:52:18--> 00:52:30

But yet the question is raised like this, Petty issues about how you make your prayer. If you move your finger constantly in sitting position, or you do and hold it out one time.

00:52:31--> 00:53:04

The reality is is the Prophet is not to slam said sallu Kamara to Mooney, who suddenly pray as you have seen me pray. And so any system that we use, which is in line with the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is Maqbool. It is accepted by the great Allah and the great scholars of Islam were teachers and students of each other. And so we need to look at our present situation, we need to develop new leadership.

00:53:05--> 00:53:17

Many of the movements coming out of the 60s, the 70s, and the 80s have now reached a low point, we need to develop the type of leadership that brings all Muslims together,

00:53:18--> 00:53:48

regardless of your organization, regardless of your nationality, regardless of your school of thought. If you are from the people of the Qibla then we need to come together. If we are on the frontlines in a hot war, and the enemy is shooting, would you turn to another Muslim and say, I don't know whether I can be with you or not? Are you from my school of thought, are you and my organization, you don't have time for that.

00:53:50--> 00:53:54

And the reality is our world is turning into a frontline situation.

00:53:56--> 00:53:59

If it's not a hot war, it is the minds of the children.

00:54:01--> 00:54:14

And so dynamic leadership, leadership which is humble, but not weak, humble to believe is and your strength is against those who attacked the religion of Islam.

00:54:15--> 00:54:24

firmness and courage. Also knowledgeable in Sharia knowledgeable in the Islamic way.

00:54:25--> 00:54:42

It is important for us now to study our religion, take our spare time and study because if we don't study it, somebody else is going to come along and tell us what the religion is. And we have the opportunity amongst us we have Arabic speaking knowledgeable people amongst us now.

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

So study the religion as much as you possibly can. But the study of the religion should not take us back 1400 years and leave us back.

00:54:55--> 00:54:58

If the Friday could put you to sleep

00:54:59--> 00:55:00

that's not

00:55:00--> 00:55:12

The Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. When he gave his sermon, his eyes would get read, he raised his voice, and he would speak to the believers as though there was an army and back of the mountain right in back of them.

00:55:13--> 00:55:14

So the Friday hood,

00:55:15--> 00:55:21

the tar leaves that we have teachings should be relevant to what is happening in society.

00:55:22--> 00:55:36

The Islam we are learning should be relevant to the life that we are facing in the streets. And so relevant institutions need to be developed. We are emphasizing now throughout our communities, education,

00:55:37--> 00:55:54

educate education as a key to our community, especially for the children, that they would have a chance to learn to read the Quran in Arabic, learn the basic sources of Islam, learn the basic elements, the fundamentals of Islam.

00:55:57--> 00:56:48

Also, we are setting up social service agencies. The Masjid need to be supported now, by institutions that are sensitive to Muslims and are dealing with the social problems of the families. The pressure of being Muslim is breaking up families. economic pressure is breaking up families, teenagers are running away. Children's Aid societies are taking Muslims out of our homes. And so we need to address this we can't bury our heads in the sand. We have to address the issues that are happening in the families. Because if the family is weak, then the whole society is weak. If there is no love, and no Islamic State in the home, you will never get an Islamic State on the outside.

00:56:49--> 00:56:57

Finally, our movement needs to have a new approach, a new approach to technology,

00:56:58--> 00:57:09

a new approach to life, where our spirituality, where our tawheed the oneness of Allah is the Center for everything that we do.

00:57:10--> 00:57:26

If we are a doctor, if we are a lawyer, if we are a scientist tauheed can influence us that any scientific development that we make, should benefit life and should not destroy life.

00:57:27--> 00:57:35

Any work that we are doing, should not be destroying our community. We cannot sell ourselves cheap.

00:57:36--> 00:57:40

That the way we earn our money, the way we spend our money.

00:57:41--> 00:58:17

We have to have a new approach to this now, bringing in the best of both worlds. So to allow it bless us and give us the strength to deal with this crisis, which is coming over the horizon. May Allah subhanaw taala clean the hearts of the believers. May Allah subhanaw taala protect the women and the children of Islam. And may Allah give us the strength to stand in the face of this cofa and disbelief and give us the best in this life and the next Apolo Polly howdah will our stock for lolly welcome when he saw the Muslim medium and Colombian is a fellow in Nauvoo, who will have a photo

The Prophet Muhammad Allah His lot was Salam was blessed with jameela killer. The ability to say a great meaning, in a few words, also blessed with knowledge, where he did not speak from himself. He spoke from the revelation

00:59:09--> 00:59:45

And if you can't remember anything, from what I have said, if it is not clear, then this is the most important thing I can bring to you today. It is the words of our messenger allays latos law. This Hadeeth which is not so well known in the ranks of the Muslims is authentic hadith, and jameela. Jamil and in this hadith reported by Ali Ibn Abi taalib carnamah law was

00:59:46--> 00:59:52

one of the great Sahaba the cousin of the Prophet peace be upon him the one who married his daughter Fatima.

00:59:53--> 00:59:54

Ali reports

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

when I took possessions of the weapons of the messenger

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

Allah, I found in the hilt of the sword, a parchment,

01:00:07--> 01:00:36

something written on a scroll, it was saying the following words. Now Ali Ibn Abi taalib was a person who could read and write. Arabic was an oral culture at that time.

And so the Prophet peace be upon him who was not lettered himself must have had somebody write this because he knew that Ali would read it.

01:00:37--> 01:00:38

It is a watseka

01:00:39--> 01:01:03

it is a legacy he is leaving. And so Ali opens up the hilt of the sword. And he finds this and he brings it to us. The Prophet peace be upon him, delivered this message. Still men kata aka ARCA will accent element Asahi Lake whirpool, Huck, wallow Allah Nasik

01:01:04--> 01:01:16

These are three important axioms for us to remember. The Prophet peace be upon him has left us these words. He said, Keep relations with those who cut you off.

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

And do good to people, even if they harm you.

01:01:23--> 01:01:27

And speak the truth, even if it is against yourself.

01:01:29--> 01:01:37

Now what would they expect in the in the health of a sort of fundamentalist Muslim, as they would say today? What would they expect written on a weapon?

01:01:39--> 01:01:44

This is the Messenger of Allah, Allah keep relations with those who cut you off.

01:01:46--> 01:02:15

Many of us accept Islam and we cut ourselves off from our families. We think we have become holy overnight. Allah has given us the Shahada. But that family, your mother and your father raised you. So we should respect our parents. We don't follow them in shirk. We don't follow them in polytheism and disbelief, but we respect them, and keep relations with them. The Prophet peace be upon him, when he went to a doctor if

and gave him permission to destroy the whole city. But the prophet peace be upon him told him in words, that maybe there would be somebody who would accept Islam, maybe there is some good in them, leave them.

01:02:39--> 01:02:44

And he lived to see the people of Thai have come into Islam in crowds.

That is the type of strength and attitude we have to have. Secondly, do good even to those who harm you.

01:02:53--> 01:03:08

Somebody is doing wrong to you. It doesn't change our character. We don't do evil in order to correct evil. We do good to correct evil and maybe doing correct doing good. May be stopping that person

01:03:10--> 01:03:12

and maybe putting that person out of commission.

01:03:13--> 01:04:02

That may be good. But we do not do evil to correct evil. Because it is the character of the Muslims. It is the patience and character which spread Islam to the four corners of the world. And lastly, which is an important point for conflict resolution. Speak the truth, even if it is against yourself. Most of us will speak the truth if it is for us.
