00:00:05--> 00:00:14

concerning our identities as Muslims, we have to go back to the first generation because if we judge things by now,

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

Islam has spread far and wide and there's so much confusion the process alum said hadal Kuru colony Samba Latina yo Luna home to Medina Luna. He said the best generation is my generation and then the one that followed them and then the one that followed them so when you look at the time of the Prophet Sal Sal them the Muslims were called Muslim owned me no mercy known about evangelia about the rock man, this is what we originally were. And so that is what our identity is. So if somebody asks you what you are, you're a Muslim.

00:00:49--> 00:01:06

inshallah we try to be movement, we want to raise we have a man and then we make do Allah will help us to be more than that we will have a state of Sn. In terms of all the other names. These are names that came later on. The great the moms

00:01:07--> 00:01:54

were teachers and students of each other. They only help us to understand the Quran and the sooner, that's all but they did not come to be a label in front of Rasulullah saw Salah they never came for this. And Imam Malik in bananas for the long run Rahim Allah was famous he did not want his book on what taught to be the main book of Islam. He had the first ad authentic ad, but he did not want only his book to be read. He did not want only his teaching, he said there are other emails. So the Imams are students and teachers of each other. So your fifth is only your understanding of the Islamic only how to make taharah. How to make salaat how to make Hajj. The Imam showed us how to make it.

00:01:54--> 00:02:10

They did not label you. That's not a label. Some people think that you're Hanafi you're from India. If you're Shafi, you're Somali or you're Indonesian, if you're Maliki human, North Africa and West Africa, right. If you're humble, you're Saudi.

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

right this is not what it is. You know, Abu hanifa was not from India.

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

Right. Imam Shafi was not a Somali

00:02:22--> 00:02:29

right, some Gaza is not a Somali, he's not Indonesian. Right. Mr. Malik was not from North Africa.

00:02:31--> 00:02:51

See, so these are names which we have made confusion on ourselves with the names of the emails, we respect the Imams, you should follow the ways of the Imam they show us how to take from Quran and Sunnah. But But your label is the label that is given by Allah subhanaw taala, you are Muslim men, you know, Abdullah in the basement.

00:02:59--> 00:03:19

Now, one of the things I want to say is that if we have everyday fit questions, we want you can save these for the local fucky. Also, if there are any problems in between jamaats here in Melbourne, this is not my job to come in to be a judge in between people here. Okay.

00:03:25--> 00:03:59

I says I'm Ken a woman, this is a everyday fit question. Can a woman be allowed to correct the mom if there was a mistake? And the prayer wherever the men did not correct the man? Well, you know, me depends upon when women would not say suppiler law they do, they can make a sound, you on the back of clap type of sound in the back, you know, to try to make the men, you know, hear, you know, something from the back. So it is permissible, but she may not be in a position where, you know, she's capable, but if she is in a position, that she couldn't make a sound, but she would not be saying supanova you know, to the man.

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

You know, there's this question also is a little off the topic and said recently that, you know, about Israel approved the decision to expand settlements around the UK solid effort to demolish the mosque and to build what they call the Temple of Solomon, could this be indication that the appearance of the gel is about to come? Well, you know, this is a very deep question On another subject altogether. But

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

definitely, the the great religions are all waiting for somebody to come. They are waiting for

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

a Messiah to come Messiah. You know, and they are waiting for some evil force also to come. And there's different discussions about this. So we do know that do that. The job is to appear. Well, he has to be law and make confusion all around the land. There's some discussions that say that the jail has appeared now is already here. This is

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

is a major mistake. And there's no proof in straight proof in a Hadith, or from you know, any of the Imams who who would indicate, you know, something like this, what we could say is that the foreigners have the job. The foreigners, those who will lead to the digital would actually be here. There was one person who wrote a book on Akbar Ali I think his name was um as he talks about the prophecies of the Quran and he said that the digital is one eye is the television

00:05:35--> 00:05:44

and you know, he's American like they said he's America and you know, yeah, just America and yet, my users Russia and they tried to apply everything today but this is a mistake.

00:05:45--> 00:06:07

Because if you say that, you know the dudjom is he you know, he's in you know, that he is America, and that his eye is the television. The process someone said digital will not enter Mecca, Medina, but if you go to Mecca, Medina you watch television, you get the videotape of the movies before you it will come from Hollywood, and it goes to Saudi Arabia.

00:06:09--> 00:06:13

So that if that's the job he's in Mecca and Medina so that's not true.

00:06:14--> 00:06:53

That is not true. We have to take these symbols literally. They are what they are. This is a man this is a human being who woke up and the descriptions you will get them in lm at the SA you will see clear descriptions of how he looks and where he's coming from the Football Hall did not disagree with this. So we cannot say that he is in London or America or anything and you know he flies you know so he flies like air American Airlines or you know Air Canada You know, that's his plane. This is stretching the things too far. And if we don't have proof for this we should not enter in the area that we don't have proof I

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

haven't we haven't done one.

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

Well you know it is important for us you know in these times to come to the masjid. The Masjid is not an organizational building. This is the house of Allah. So when we come inside the master we are coming in a law's house. We are coming close to Allah subhanaw taala and this will help this purifies us this helps us to stay on Serato Mr. Kane, the Sakina the peace tranquility you get in the masjid you cannot get anywhere else so it's important for us to come in you know to to our Islam has to be complete Islam right we have to be Abdullah because we have a character we call Abdul Ramadan

00:07:54--> 00:08:30

right and we have another one we call Abdullah eat is the slave of eat not a slave of Allah. Okay, so we all want to be Abdullah and that means we will come in inshallah whether it's Ramadan or not Ramadan but this is a tendency This is a weakness that isn't all over the world it's not just here is all over the world and we have to now practice Islam completely and during you know outside of Ramadan in Ramadan we have to continue to practice our Islam This is what it is for. So it's very important for everybody to come in order to get peace inside of themselves no

00:08:36--> 00:08:36

problem

00:08:48--> 00:08:48

ever

00:08:51--> 00:08:51

had an

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

ad

00:08:56--> 00:09:12

Okay, the question is that what about people who are making tech fear that they are calling people or non Muslims just because they drink you know, water or, you know, for any any reason that they are saying people you know, who has the right to do this? tech fear is a very serious thing.

00:09:13--> 00:09:18

And the process of them said whoever is saying somebody is you know, coffee doesn't approve. He was a coffee.

00:09:20--> 00:09:36

So it is not right to do this. This is something which is really really serious. And it has to be handled by a proper Mufti accardi is the one who makes that decision because in the Muslim in a Muslim state, it could lead to capital punishment. So this is serious.

00:09:37--> 00:09:48

It's not something we play with. And just an even if you went to a judge, right if the person did not make salata, whatever the first thing you would say, is he Caslen is he is he lazy?

00:09:49--> 00:09:52

Right, they would find excuses for the person.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

This is the last thing that you want that we want to say to other people. You know, nobody should assume this authority especially

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

These times because it is a dangerous thing for any Muslim to be saying, Well,

00:10:05--> 00:10:19

okay, so this is a very good question. And this is what the Football Hall I was just reading a discussion between the scholars about the health regime, right. So there's different opinions on this. And really the best position would be a balance between the two,

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

that you have a health water Raja.

00:10:23--> 00:10:58

And the end, the best level movement would be the one with his attitude out. So you don't go too much with fear. And you don't go too much with hope. Because the problem is, if people do not fear Allah subhanaw, taala, they start to take things for granted. They say, Well, you know, in the La Creme, de la creme Mallesh. Your and they just do what they want to do. Because they don't think there's a punishment. You see, and this has crept into many communities. People think that because they come from a good family, or because they speak, you know, Arabic or whatever, or Turkish or ODU, or whatever they think they say.

00:10:59--> 00:11:22

They think because they say my name is Ahmed that I'm saying I will not have a punishment in the next life. Like we're chosen people. This is what happened to Benny is that they thought that they were you know, shabalala Mukhtar that they like some chosen people. Right. So so it should be a balanced but but one this point that came up that one scholar said, If you live in a time of kesulitan maaseiah

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

Jessa Tomasi, there's a lot of sense that this is where

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

you need to have

00:11:31--> 00:12:05

people need to feel a loss of an adult, they need to know that there is a punishment. We cannot leave this, but I agree with you. That should not be the main talk. If a person is giving a talk of a moment, a moment or clip or whatever it is. He should make people feel loved, but give them hope at the end. You have to have hope. This is why I said you know if you are only at a law law, how often la himolla home Yes, no. We have a man and taqwa nothing to fear. Don't be afraid, nothing to be sad about. If you believe in Allah, but at the same time,

00:12:06--> 00:12:27

people have to take Islam serious. When the time of salaat comes if it's going out. It is serious man, you're downtown. And an officer is going out, find the place and makes a lot. So off the cuff I look at you and they look at you funny. So what what are they going to do to shoot you because you make Salah now makes a lot

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

because this is a commandment from Allah subhanaw taala with disobeying Allah.

00:12:34--> 00:13:20

So so we have to look at these things very serious. But you know, it's a very good point. We it needs to be balanced. It does need to be balanced and we can and especially for young people, Islam should be positive. The pastor seldom said to his companions, Bushido will lead to not fatal. Yes, Cyril will lead to a zero. Right, he said, but she will make things you know, call. Good. Good. Good. Good news. Glad tidings. Don't drive people away. Make Islam easy. Don't make it difficult. Make it easy tayseer. So there needs to be tayseer. But we're living in a time where there's a lot of sins. And people need to know the punishment of a loss of pantalla. It is real man. It's real.

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

It's not just a story.

00:13:23--> 00:13:33

And if we realize that, then we will think twice before we do certain things. Right? When you're driving in your car. If the criminal if the police is standing there with his gun,

00:13:34--> 00:13:53

then everybody acts very good. They stop at the red light. They go with the green light, because police is there right? No police is there. He's driving his car through the red light. He doesn't care. Right? If you know that Allah subhanaw taala you know knows what we are doing? And the angel is writing on us.

00:13:54--> 00:13:58

Then before we steal or rely or we do that, we will think twice.

00:13:59--> 00:14:06

You see, we will think twice with what we do. And if we do something wrong, we will make Toba immediately

00:14:07--> 00:14:29

make Toba if we do something wrong. So this is important for our community. You know, take Islam serious, man, take it serious, because you don't know how long it's gonna last. There are people right now. Just like we said, we will reading today about the people of the Afghan, right Afghan people who are here in Australia in the middle of the country.

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

Right 100 200 years ago, they were here.

00:14:35--> 00:14:39

Right and now. No trace some of the people Charles Abdullah

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

name is gone. We have people in Brazil,

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

right who they were Muslims. And then you know, slavery came and they lost their Dean. They hung on for a while, and they lost they went to one community and the only thing they had left the salaat was that the man stands in the middle and he dances the women clap their hands.

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

And he makes a lot.

00:15:03--> 00:15:08

They lost. And they say different words, which means

00:15:09--> 00:15:41

Islamic words, they lost it. So so we have to be serious ultimate Allah gave us the deen. We have to be thankful to Allah and be serious about the deal that we have now because there are forces of evil around us. It's trying to take Islam out of us. If spending billions of dollars to take Islam away from us, and especially our children, they don't want these children to be Muslim. They want the girls to take off their clothes and show their stomach and everything that they want the boys to be little sissies and not sure they're male or female. This is what they want us to be.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

And they're serious about

00:15:45--> 00:15:52

the serious. So we have to be serious and hang on to the rope of Allah azza wa jal, but try to be positive at the same time.

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

As I heard you saying

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

what about the brothers who have just appeared they do great work in banks and accountants and accounting firms or anywhere in the

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

world?

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

Well, this issue of Riba of interest is a very serious one. And we were studying it in the 40 Hadith or the sabar movie caught that the process seldom said it just enable a simple mobile cart. And he went through a short pillar, a Sarah McLachlan of seletti huduma low level Huck will eckler River

00:16:36--> 00:17:17

eating interest, this is a serious thing. Okay. And it is a problem that we have to face. We know that the process Selim said the time would come when the dust of interest will touch everybody. So it has come all of us are in it one way or another indirectly or directly. So we have to make Toba to Allah subhanaw taala and try to come out of it try to come out, try to have a credit union interest free credit union, try to get a banking, Islamic banking, try to bring it into this country here. Now, Islamic banks, you know, try to do to do something, it's a problem all of us are facing.

00:17:18--> 00:17:38

But we have to come out of this now. We cannot expect a lot to give us victory on the ground if we still have this. And so this is a very serious area. And that's where tober comes in Toba is self analysis and reconstruction. So analyze yourself, make your your repentance and then reconstruct.

00:17:39--> 00:17:54

Right. And in Trinidad, the island of Trinidad, they started with an interest free credit union, that you start putting your money together. And you form a credit union with the interest free credit union. And then you can lend money to people.

00:17:55--> 00:18:15

Eventually they buy cars, they buy houses, they have scholarships to school, it can start with a credit union and people put their money together like this. And eventually it can move to the level of a bank. I remember when I was in Medina back in the 70s. I was a student in Medina and I went I put my money in the bank. And they said after.

00:18:17--> 00:18:33

After a couple months I came back and I checked my money and they said you have 200 miles and you have five riyals fat yada. They said a benefit. And I said no this is data. This is how I'm right. This is interest

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

in Medina.

00:18:37--> 00:18:49

So what is this? And then I went out and they had the solder off they have a Roger he. So we went to a Roger he we put up money with a Raji. Now he has a bank.

00:18:50--> 00:19:02

Now he has a bank does Allah faded out Roger he, now he has a bag dissolve. He started just money change it. And he did. He took the money from the students interest free. Like that's how he started.

00:19:03--> 00:19:26

Okay, and so you start small, and then you can get bigger and bigger and bigger. It's expanding and growing in the Muslim world. I was I spent this year last year in Bahrain, I was in Doha to Bahrain, and they're in Bahrain, they have more Islamic banks than anywhere in the world. And when the economic recession hit the world, it did not hit them. They didn't want to say anything, because they thought they would be attacked.

00:19:27--> 00:19:42

But they did not have a problem. Because they're not involved in you know, directly in the system. Now they're getting some Fallout now. But when it came, they didn't have any problem. And it said, Pamela, look what Islamic banking can do.

00:19:43--> 00:19:47

See, so we need to try to bring this into our lives. Start small,

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

you know, help each other, you know, put a pool of money together, and then finance somebody is and then it gets bigger and bigger and bigger than shallot you know, we can come but we need to make Toba to a loss of our time.

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

And try to make an effort to come out of it. Because everybody is involved. If you're working at the bank, everybody's involved, I cannot change the Hadeeth that's what it is.

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

You can't change it

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

last time.

00:20:17--> 00:20:31

Just please, can you give us a short explanation for respecting the interests of domestic special life demands? Who's coming to see without bringing that to Russia or special with the sisters? likely that we're in Asia?

00:20:32--> 00:21:09

And they doesn't want to work? Or they doesn't work properly? Yeah. Well, you know, it's a good point about respecting the house of Allah subhanaw taala that we are the guest of a lot when we come inside of his house. And we should make time to Masjid we should, you know, cover our that's also that's not just women, but men should cover that, too. Because sometimes the brothers come inside and their pants are all shown in the back the tight yo and whatnot, they have to have settled out of a male's to not just females, right. So everybody should have settled out when they come inside the master. And I'm not sure we're in Cape Town, we have a thing. If the women if he doesn't have a

00:21:09--> 00:21:39

proper thing, we have an a rack of abayas, which we will keep it clean. And also for the men. We have jumpers, some coats like a light Jabbar and you put a rack of the day. So if he's not covered, and he has his Superman Batman shirt, right, and then his pants are all tight in the back, then put the jumper on, at least when you're in the house of Allah, or get us a laptop or something like this, and put on the laptop for the males, as well as the females when they are in the house of Allah. subhanaw taala.

00:21:41--> 00:22:24

You said brother you mentioned Salah is important, you said to pray anywhere I mentioned to my students, if you go to the mall for shopping and they have nowhere to pray, I took them to go to a cloth shop and get a shirt. For example, go to the change room and pray. Yes, we need to use our sense, our hikma and if you try, you can find a place to mix a lot. If you can't make salaat in front of everybody else, then you can find the section of the mall as we travel, bring this agenda with you and your back. Have a prayer mat. Okay, and so they have nice prayer mats that they have you open the thing up and do. So then bring your prayer mat and you can find the section in the mall

00:22:24--> 00:22:38

where there's not a lot of people. And then you can you know, get Jeff kybella you know, make your resume and then you can make your select? If so what if somebody sees you So what? One brother this brother fear Allah, he was downtown New York City

00:22:39--> 00:22:49

in Manhattan. And there's all these people in the salaat Asa was going out. He put his rug down Allahu Akbar. And he made the Salah, all the people looked at him and they said,

00:22:50--> 00:22:53

and they just kept walking. He made a salad

00:22:54--> 00:22:58

because he doesn't even see the people. He's only just Allah subhanaw taala

00:22:59--> 00:23:05

right, he didn't even see the people. Right and this is a bob This is the level of accent

00:23:06--> 00:23:19

right? And taba de la ha, en la Katara lm Shakuntala over in New York, that you worship Allah as though you see him. And if you can't do that as though he sees you, this is brother, he was only seeing a lot.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

He didn't see the crowd.

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

And he just made us a lot. But we are not like this, we were weaker. So we can find a place in the mall, on the side or whatever. And we can put us agenda down and then we can make us a lot. Eventually, if you have a big mall with the Muslim did in Cape Town, they went to the mall, especially where a lot of Muslims are. And they went to the administration on the mall and they said we want a masala in the mall.

00:23:46--> 00:23:53

So the man said, Okay, if you have a prayer area, it will make a lot of business. So they made a Masjid in the mall.

00:23:54--> 00:24:32

Because there's enough Muslims, they're spending their money every day. Just get a little room and we'll take care of the room. We'll even pay you for the room. Right and then they get the business people who are working in the mall, they put their money together and they got the room made a little la salon area, a little blue area. So when a time kind of you're in the mall, you can go to the little masala and you can mix a lot. So you can do this now the community unites together and they pull the strings so I want to thank you for your questions. I pray that Allah will bless this school and the masjid and keep us all together in a state of Islam. So particolare become deca

00:24:32--> 00:24:53

shawanda either enter the stock to rucola to blue lake Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim will us in them and several of your hosts Linda Dina amanu, Amina salejaw what was what was what will happen to us over Saba are so large Allah, Allah say that Mohammed, Allah, he was such a big man wahaca da Juana Alhamdulillah who Rabbil alameen wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:25:03--> 00:25:07

The de Zhao is one I is the television

00:25:09--> 00:25:18

and you know he's America like they said he's America and you know yeah juges American yet uses Russia and they tried to apply everything today but this is a mistake

00:25:19--> 00:25:41

because if you say that you know the digital is he you know he's in you know that he is America and that his eye is the television. The process of them said digital will not enter Mecca Medina but if you go to Mecca Medina you watch television, you get the videotape of the movies before you it will come from Hollywood and it goes to Saudi Arabia

00:25:43--> 00:25:47

so that if that's the job he's in Mecca and Medina so that's not true.

00:25:48--> 00:26:28

That is not true. We have to take these symbols literally. They are what they are. This is a man this is a human being who will come and the descriptions you will get them in lm at the SA you will see clear descriptions of how he looks and where he's coming from the alcohol did not disagree with this. So we cannot say that he is in London or America or anything and you know he flies you know so he flies like air American Airlines or you know Air Canada you know that's his plane This is stretching the things too far. And if we don't have proof for this we should not enter in the area that we don't have to fall below

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

that haven't what they haven't done what

00:26:43--> 00:27:26

well you know it is important for us you know in these times to come to the masjid the master is not an organizational building. This is the house of Allah. So when we come inside the master we are coming in allows us we are coming close to Allah subhanaw taala and this will help this purifies us this helps us to stay on Serato Mr. Kane, the Sakina the peace tranquility you get in the masjid you cannot get anywhere else so it's important for us to come in you know to to our Islam has to be complete Islam. Right We have to be Abdullah because we have a character we call Abdu Ramadan

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

right. And we have another one we call Abdullah eat. He is the slave of eat not a slave of Allah. Okay, so we all want to be Abdullah and that means we will come in inshallah, whether it's Ramadan or not Ramadan. But this is a tendency, this is a weakness that isn't all over the world. It's not just here is all over the world. And we have to now practice Islam completely. And during you know, outside of Ramadan in Ramadan, we have to continue to practice our Islam This is what it is for. So it's very important for everybody to come in order to get peace inside of themselves. No

00:28:10--> 00:28:10

problem.

00:28:30--> 00:28:46

Okay, the question is that what about people who are making tech fear that they are calling people are non Muslims just because they drink you know, a water or, you know, for any any reason that they are saying people, you know, who has the right to do this? tech fear is a very serious thing.

00:28:47--> 00:28:52

And the process of them said whoever is saying somebody is, you know, coffee doesn't approve. He was a coffee.

00:28:54--> 00:29:10

So it is not right to do this. This is something which is really really serious. And it has to be handled by a proper Mufti accardi is the one who makes that decision because in the Muslim in a Muslim state, it could lead to capital punishment. So this is serious.

00:29:11--> 00:29:22

It's not something we play with. And just an even if you went to a judge, right, if the person did not make salata or whatever, the first thing he would say, is he Caslen is he is he lazy?

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

Right, they would find excuses for the person.

00:29:27--> 00:29:37

This is the last thing that you want that we want to say to other people, nobody should assume this authority, especially in these times because it is a dangerous thing for any Muslim to be saying Well,

00:29:39--> 00:29:52

okay, so this is a very good question. And this is what the Football Hall I was just reading a discussion between the scholars about how for a job, right so there's different opinions on this. And really the best position would be a balance between the two

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

that you have alkaline water Raja and the end the best level mortman would be the one with his assets.

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

down. So you don't go too much with fear. And you don't go too much with hope. Because the problem is, if people do not fear Allah subhanaw taala they start to take things for granted. They say, Well, you know, in the la creme de la creme Mallesh your and they just do what they want to do, because they don't think there's a punishment. You see, and this has crept into many communities. People think that because they come from a good family, or because they speak you know, Arabic or whatever, or or Turkish or or do or whatever, they think they're safe.

00:30:33--> 00:30:56

They think because they say my name is Ahmed that I'm safe. I will not have a punishment in the next life. Like we're chosen people. This is what happened to Benny is so ill that they thought that they were you know, shabalala Mukhtar that they like some chosen people. Right. So so it should be a balance but but one this point that came up that one scholar said, If you live in a time of castle atoll, maaseiah

00:30:57--> 00:31:01

Castle Tomasi, there's a lot of sense that this is where

00:31:03--> 00:31:04

you need to have

00:31:05--> 00:31:39

people need to feel Allah subhanaw taala they need to know that there is a punishment. We cannot leave this but I agree with you. That should not be the main talk. If a person is giving a talk of a mama, a mama Papa, whatever it is, he should make people feel loved but give them hope at the end. You have to have hope. This is why I said you know if you are only Allah, La hopeful, la himolla homie arsenal. We have a man and taqwa nothing to fear. Don't be afraid, nothing to be sad about. If you believe in Allah, but at the same time,

00:31:40--> 00:32:01

people have to take Islam serious. When the time of salaat comes, if it's going out. It is serious man, you're downtown. And an assessor is going out find the place and makes a lot. So off the cuff, I look at you and they look at you funny. So what what are they going to do to you shoot you because you make Salah? No. Makes a lot

00:32:03--> 00:32:07

because this is a commandment from Allah subhanaw taala with disobeying Allah.

00:32:08--> 00:32:55

So so we have to look at these things very serious. But you know, it's a very good point. We it needs to be balanced. It does need to be balanced and we can and especially for young people, Islam should be positive. The pastor seldom said to his companions, Bushido will lead to not fatal. Yes, Cyril will add to aceto. Right. He said Bashir will make things you know, call. Good, give good good news. Glad tidings don't drive people away. Make Islam easy. Don't make it difficult. Make it easy, tastier. So the needs to be tastier. But we're living in a time where there's a lot of sense. And people need to know the punishment of a loss of pantalla. It is real man. It's real. It's not just a

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

story.

00:32:57--> 00:33:07

And if we realize that, then we will think twice before we do certain things. Right? When you're driving in your car. If the criminal if the police is standing there with his gun,

00:33:08--> 00:33:27

then everybody acts very good. They stop at the red light. They go with the green light, because police is there right? No police is there. He's driving his car through the red light. He doesn't care. Right? If you know that Allah subhanaw taala you know knows what we are doing. And the angel is writing on us

00:33:28--> 00:33:32

than before we steal or we lie or we do that we will think twice.

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

You see, we will think twice with what we do. And if we do something wrong, we will make Toba immediately

00:33:41--> 00:34:03

make Toba if we do something wrong. So this is important for our community. You know, take Islam serious, man, take it serious, because you don't know how long it's gonna last. There are people right now. Just like we said, we will reading today about the people of the Afghan, right Afghan people who are here in Australia in the middle of the country.

00:34:05--> 00:34:08

Right 100 200 years ago, they were here.

00:34:09--> 00:34:13

Right and now. No trace some of the people Charles Abdullah,

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

name is God. We have people in Brazil.

00:34:18--> 00:34:36

Right who they were Muslims. And then your slavery came and they lost their Deen. They hung on for a while. And they lost they went to one community and the only thing they had left the salaat was that the man stands in the middle. And any dances the women clap their hands and any makes That's a lot.

00:34:37--> 00:34:41

They lost it. And they say different words which means

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

Islamic words. They lost it. So so we have to be serious ultimate Allah gave us the dean. We have to be thankful to Allah and be serious about the deen that we have now because there are forces of evil around us. It's trying to take Islam out of us.

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

spending billions of dollars to take Islam away from us, and especially our children. They don't want these children to be Muslim. They want the girls to take off their clothes and show their stomach and everything that they want the boys to be little sissies and not sure they're male or female. This is what they want us to be.

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

And they're serious about

00:35:19--> 00:35:26

this serious. So we have to be serious and hang on to the rope of Allah azza wa jal, but try to be positive at the same time.

00:35:49--> 00:36:08

Well, this issue of Riba of interest is a very serious one. And we were studying in the 40 Hadith or the sabar movie, that the process of them said it just enable a sub ubercart and he went through a shipbuilder a Sarah McLachlan of seletti Hydra mala Elavil, Huck will Aquila river,

00:36:09--> 00:36:51

eating interest, this is a serious thing. Okay. And it is a problem that we have to face. We know that the process Selim said the time would come when the dust of interest would touch everybody. So it has come all of us are in it one way or another indirectly or directly. So we have to make Toba to Allah subhanaw taala and try to come out of it try to come out, try to have a credit union interest free credit union, try to get banking, Islamic banking, try to bring it into this country here. Now, Islamic banks, you know, try to do to do something, it's a problem all of us are facing.

00:36:52--> 00:37:12

But we have to come out of this now. We cannot expect a lot to give us victory on the ground if we still have this. And so this is a very serious area. And that's where tober comes in Toba is self analysis and reconstruction. So you analyze yourself, make your your your repentance and then reconstruct.

00:37:13--> 00:37:28

Right and in Trinidad, the island of Trinidad, they started with an interest free credit union, that you start putting your money together and you form a credit union with the interest free credit union. And then you can lend money to people.

00:37:29--> 00:37:49

Eventually they buy cars, they buy houses, they have scholarships to school, it can start with a credit union and people put their money together like this. And eventually it can move to the level of a bank. I remember when I was in Medina back in the 70s. I was a student in Medina and I went I put my money in the bank and they said after

00:37:50--> 00:38:07

after a couple months I came back and I checked my money and they said you have 200 miles and you have five riyals fat yada they said a benefit. And I said no this is Dada This is hom right? This is interest

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

in Medina.

00:38:11--> 00:38:22

So what is this? And then I went out and they had the solder off they have a Roger he. So we went to a Roger here we put up money with a Raji. Now he has a bank.

00:38:24--> 00:38:36

Now he has a bank just allocated a Roger he, now he has a bank dissolve in it. He started just money change it and he did. He took the money from the students interest free. Like that's how we started.

00:38:37--> 00:38:59

Okay, and so you start small and then you can get bigger and bigger and bigger. It's expanding and growing in the Muslim world. I was I spent this year last year in Bahrain, I was in Dolittle, Bahrain, and they're in Bahrain, they have more Islamic banks than anywhere in the world. And when the economic recession hit the world, it did not hit them. They didn't want to say anything because they thought they would be attacked.

00:39:01--> 00:39:15

But they did not have a problem. Because they're not involved in you know, directly in the system. Now they're getting some Fallout now. But when it came, they didn't have any problem and it said suppiler law, look what Islamic banking can do.

00:39:17--> 00:39:21

See, so we need to try to bring this into our lives. Start small,

00:39:22--> 00:39:43

you know, help each other, you know, put pool of money together, and then finance somebody is and then it gets bigger and bigger and bigger than shala you know we can come but we need to make Toba to Allah subhanaw taala and try to make an effort to come out of it. Because everybody is involved in your work in at the back. Everybody's involved in it. I cannot change the Hadith. That's what it is.

00:39:44--> 00:39:45

You can't change it

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

last time.

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

Just please can you like give us a short explanation for respecting the interests of domestic special life demands was coming to see without breaking

00:40:10--> 00:40:46

Yeah, well you know, it's a good point about respecting the house of Allah subhanaw taala that we are the guest of a lot when we come inside of his house. And we should make Tahir to Masjid we should, you know, cover our. That's also that's not just women, but men should cover that out too. Because sometimes the brothers come inside and their parents are all shown in the back that tight, you know, and whatnot, they have to have settled out of a male's to not just females, right. So everybody should have settled out when they come inside the master and are mastered, we're in Cape Town, we have a thing. If the women if he doesn't have a proper thing, we have an a rack of abayas,

00:40:46--> 00:41:13

which we will keep it clean. And also for the men. We have jumpers, some coats, like a light job, and you put a record out there. So if he's not covered, and he has his Superman Batman shirt, right, and then his pants are all tight in the back, then put the job on, at least when you're in the house of Allah, or get us a laptop or something like this, and put on the laptop for the males, as well as the females when they are in the house of Allah. subhanaw taala.

00:41:14--> 00:41:57

You said Brother, you mentioned Salah is important, you said to pray anywhere I mentioned to my students, if you go to the mall for shopping, and they have nowhere to pray, I took them to go to a cloth shop and get a shirt. For example, go to the change room and pray. Yes, we need to use our sense, Hickman and if you try, you can find a place to make Salah. If you can't make salaat in front of everybody else, then you can find the section of the mall as we travel, bring this agenda with you and your back. Have a prayer mat. Okay, and so they have nice prayer mats that they have you open the thing up and do. So then bring your prayer mat and you can find the section in the mall

00:41:57--> 00:42:12

where there's not a lot of people. And then you can you know, get your Qibla you know, make your way through and then you can make your slot if you can. So what if somebody sees you So what? One brother, this brother fear Allah, he was downtown New York City

00:42:13--> 00:42:27

in Manhattan. And as all these people in the salon Asa was going out, he put his rug down, Allahu Akbar. And he made this a lot of the people looked at him and they said, and they just kept walking. He made a solid,

00:42:28--> 00:42:32

because he doesn't even see the people. He's only just Allah subhanaw taala.

00:42:33--> 00:42:38

Right, he didn't even see the people. Right and this is above this is the level of accent

00:42:39--> 00:42:53

right on top of De La Hoya en la Katara. lm Toronto over in New York, that you will worship Allah as though you see him. And if you can't do that as though he sees you this brother, he was only seeing a lot.

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

He didn't see the crowd.

00:42:57--> 00:43:19

And he just made us a lot. But we are not like this. We were weaker. So we can find a place in the mall, on the side or whatever. And we can put our agenda down. And then we can make us a lot. Eventually, if you have a big mall with the Muslim did in Cape Town, they went to the mall, especially where a lot of Muslims are. And they went to the administration on the mall and they said we want to musalla in the mall.

00:43:20--> 00:43:27

So the man said, Okay, if you have a prayer area, it will make a lot of business. So they made a Masjid in the mall.

00:43:28--> 00:44:05

Because there's enough Muslims, they're spending their money every day. Just get a little room and we'll take care of the room. Will we even pay you for the room? right and then they take the business people who are working in the mall, they put their money together and they got the room made a little la salon area, a little Lulu area. So when the time comes if you're in the mall, you can go to the little masala and you can make salad. So you can do this now the community unites together and they pull the strings so I want to thank you for your questions. I pray that Allah will bless the school and the masjid and keep us all together in a state of Islam. So political will

00:44:05--> 00:44:26
