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

smilla rahmanir rahim

00:00:04--> 00:00:56

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa shadman La ilaha illallah wa Lia Salin wa shadow unnao Mohammed Abu hora solo, kata Milan via even more saline Allahumma salli wa sallam other ab decoda seleka Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine woebot All praises due to Allah, Lord of the worlds and surely Allah is the friend and protector of the righteous. And I bear witness that Allah is one and has no partners, and that Mohammed the son of Abdullah, is a servant and his last messenger. And may Allah always and constantly send peace and blessings to Mohammed, to his family, to his companions to all those who call to his way and establish his Sunnah, the day of judgment. As to what follows

00:00:56--> 00:01:03

my beloved brothers and sisters, I begin with the greeting words of the righteous Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:01:05--> 00:01:41

and I want to bring you special salaams from your brothers and sisters in Toronto in Canada. They are Alhamdulillah hamdulillah. Muslims now make up about 10% of the GTA the population of Toronto, out of 2.5 million people. There's over 250,000 Muslims by the mercy of Allah azza wa jal, Islam is going north. It has reached the North Pole. at the North Pole, there is a Masjid at the top of the earth.

00:01:42--> 00:01:50

And so in the far off reaches of the world, Islam has spread in the deep south in Australia.

00:01:51--> 00:02:26

Islam has spread to the Aboriginal people. Recently I was there in Melbourne, Australia, and a chief from the Aboriginal clans had accepted Islam and his people were also accepting Islam. And so in the far off reaches of the world, this final message, the last Testament, the last messenger, Muhammad Ali sotto Salaam, his words are reaching people of different colors, different nationalities, and different ways of life.

00:02:27--> 00:02:30

But what is happening today in the world

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

is that we are living in a world of illusion.

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

And that is that you see one thing and the reality is something different.

00:02:42--> 00:02:47

Especially at this time of year, as we end the solar year.

00:02:48--> 00:02:52

And we are going towards what they say is the new year.

00:02:54--> 00:03:03

We are entering into a new Islamic year we have entered into the month of Muharram people are thinking about time they're thinking about the future.

00:03:05--> 00:03:27

Tonight, they come together and they watch a golden ball they look to this fire the sun to begin the year. But there is an illusion that is happening. There is a fantastic world which has been made for you and me. Which is not the reality on the ground.

00:03:28--> 00:03:36

And we should never forget the words of Allah subhanaw taala who tells us very clearly when we are speaking about time,

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

that a lot Allah azzawajal has told us our Billahi min ash shaytani regime. Yeah, you have levena Armando, taco la well, Tondo, enough Salma cada McDavid? What taco la in the LA hubiera en de matar balloon. One that's a cool new kelda vena neso la ha for unser home and for soccer. hula ecoman facetune. Allah tells us Oh you who believe.

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

Have the consciousness of Allah and let every soul look to what it puts forward for tomorrow and fear Allah. Surely Allah is well aware of all that you do. And be not as those who forgot Allah and so he made them forget themselves. Surely they are the disobedient ones. So Allah tells us in this verse, that you should always be aware of the presence of your Lord,

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

inside of the masjid and outside

00:04:36--> 00:04:38

on Juma or on Saturday,

00:04:40--> 00:04:53

Friday during the day, Friday nights, at school, at work wherever you are, remember that there is one who is closer to you than your juggler vein. And along with his knowledge

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

is closer to us than anything he knows what we do in the secret and he

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

knows what we do in the open.

00:05:03--> 00:05:10

And so we need to have the consciousness of Allah never forget that there is one who is watching over you.

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

And Allah have said, Every soul look to the future

00:05:16--> 00:05:23

will turn to enough soon macadam at the heart, each soul should look what did you do for tomorrow?

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

Look at your year last year, what did you do in the last year?

00:05:29--> 00:05:38

What have you done for Islam? What have you done for yourself? What have you done for your family? What righteous thing did you do? And did you put forward for the future?

00:05:40--> 00:05:47

Then Allah tells us be not as those who forgot Allah, He will make them forget themselves.

00:05:49--> 00:06:35

Surely, they are the disobedient ones. And so when we see this, we can realize what is happening to the Muslim world. I am just coming back right now from Istanbul, from Turkey. And when you are in Istanbul, you will see masjids on the size, like you have never seen before. You will see the strength that Islam had, you will see the government that Muslims had that ruled over much of the known world. But when they forgot Allah, he made them forget themselves. And so they are very power, which was at one time making the world a place of peace and security is now being used against themselves.

00:06:37--> 00:06:54

When you look at many parts of the Gulf region, you will see people with so much money, so much wealth, they don't know what to do with it. But there are other Muslims in other parts of the world who have just enough food to break their fast.

00:06:55--> 00:07:05

It is the same oma the same nation. Why is there one group that has so much wealth and there are other people who are starving to death?

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

Why is it that scholars are great scholars

00:07:12--> 00:07:22

that we have today so much knowledge that we have which can answer the problems of the world. So much knowledge is in front of us in our hands.

00:07:23--> 00:07:38

Why is this knowledge not solving the problems of the world, the problems of racism, the problems of the banking system? When you say you're a Muslim, you have to realize it is more than just wearing a Koofi.

00:07:39--> 00:08:11

We, we represent the last messenger kit that came to humanity. We represent the best human being ever lived on the face of the planet Earth. We represent the last Testament, the last form of ye the last revelation that came to human beings. We have the ultimate Declaration of Independence. You know in America, they have this thing they say Declaration of Independence. That means I am free.

00:08:12--> 00:08:33

We are free of the spirit world. Today around the world. The Magicians are on the rise. The Sahara, they come in all countries. They deal with the jinn, they are casting spells, they are setting up a secret society, they are trying to tell the future.

00:08:34--> 00:08:48

Even here in the UK, amongst the young people, they also are trying to push this in a secret way. Their new hero is Harry Potter, that you know what Harry Potter society he is a magician.

00:08:49--> 00:09:21

He is Asahi and he represents a secret society. And when you read the Fatiha, you have the Declaration of Independence and that is iaca Naboo. We are going to stay with this sentence alone. We say you Allah alone do we worship and from you we seek help and assistance. This is freedom from the Djinn freedom from the Sahara, freedom from all the forms of magic and all the forms of shirk.

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

We also have

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

an interest free banking system.

00:09:29--> 00:09:38

When the recession struck the countries of the world and the people's money started to go down the Islamic banks had no losses.

00:09:39--> 00:09:58

I was amongst the people in the country of Bahrain. And the Islamic banks during the recession had no losses they made gains. They didn't want to tell the world they are afraid to be attacked. But the reality is we have something we have a system which can save the world economic crisis.

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

We have a system that can save the world of racism.

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

There is racism today in all of the countries. One group hates another group. One tribe hates another tribe.

00:10:13--> 00:10:26

One country hates another country. But if we practice Islam, it should take us away from racism, away from tribalism, away from the hatred of a person because of the color of their skin.

00:10:27--> 00:10:54

The process of them said very clearly, there is no preference of the Arabs over the non Arabs, or that non Arabs over the Arabs. There's no preference of white over black or the opposite isn't that bit taqwa? It is only with taqwa that we see a difference between human beings. And so we have this beautiful system to give to the world. We have large numbers, we have wealth, but there is an illusion.

00:10:55--> 00:11:34

There is an illusion being painted in front of us. The first reality we have to deal with is in ourselves. That is the first reality. As we cry for change. We cry for economic change. We cry for political change. We cry for Islamic social system, Islamic banking, but Allah told us in Allahu Allah you Hey, yo, ma be comin What are you here to be enforcing him, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves. It's in the heart. That is where the change begins. But in front of us is an illusion.

00:11:35--> 00:12:24

There is a false world, which is being painted in front of us. It comes on television, in the movies, and now on Facebook, on Twitter, it comes in the new social networking. coming to our people in the prophet SAW Selim did not speak for himself. The Prophet peace be upon him spoke from above seven heavens when my young Chico Anil Hawa in Hua Illa Hua, when you have he did not speak from himself. But revelation comes through him and he gives it to you. The prophet SAW seldom said inauthentic IDs reported in October Ronnie yaku roofie akkad is a man kept the boon that jello yeah tuna comin Allah Hadith be Muslim test tomorrow and tamala about

00:12:25--> 00:13:15

four Yakumo yahoomail you deluna come whether you have to knuckle the province or sell them said they will come near the end of time, great liars, like false Christs, false prophets. They will come to you with a type of speech that neither you nor your parents have ever heard of before. Be aware of them. Be aware that they take you a strange be whether they put you into a fitna a trial or tribulation. So dakara Salalah alayhi salatu salam, it has come to pass. What did the Prophet say? They will come to you with a type of speech that neither you nor your parents have ever heard of before, digital technology.

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

Now they have the ability to make false things seem real.

00:13:22--> 00:13:34

And to make what is true, appear to be false. They can take your picture, they can take your voice, they can put words in your mouth, and they can make a picture and you didn't say it.

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

But people will think it is real.

00:13:39--> 00:13:49

Beware of them. Beware that they take your straight and beware that they put you into a fitna. This is an illusion.

00:13:50--> 00:13:55

Tonight they say it is New Year's Eve.

00:13:56--> 00:14:03

And the people are gathering around to celebrate the coming of a new year. It is a lie.

00:14:04--> 00:14:09

It is not the New Year's. How can you say this?

00:14:10--> 00:14:17

Because when you count when you go back to the early calendars used by the European people

00:14:19--> 00:14:38

in Latin language in the Roman calendar, September is from septum it's seven. October is eight like octagon eight sides, right? November is nine and December is 10.

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

That means January is the 11th month and February is the 12th. The new year was originally in March. Why is it now January 1. Why are they deceiving us? Why is an illusion you think it's the new year they go and they say

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

See the ball go up. And they say now It's a new year and they laugh, and they drink alcohol and they commit adultery, and they rape and they murder. It's a new year.

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

It is not the New Year.

00:15:13--> 00:16:05

Number one, it is the time of the winter season, December 25. It used to be their ceremony of the Bacchanalia and the Saturnalia. They used to worship the sun god, because it is so cold in the winter. As we live here in these countries, it is so cold the darkness is long. So they used to pray to the sun god to come back. And they put up Christmas trees in their houses as a type of taneema a type of amulet to protect them from evil things and give them life inside of their homes. It is not the birthday of Christ. Esau a Salaam was born in the warm weather. The Christians will tell you when Jesus was born, the shepherds had their flocks outside you can't keep your animals outside and

00:16:05--> 00:16:50

Philistine at this time at night. It's too cold. He was born in the warm weather they were paying taxes that means that they're their plants were ripened in the Quranic our discussion Merriam may have locked may Allah be pleased with her. Allah sent the message to her that she should go to the nephila, she should shake the palm tree, and she would get the roots of she would get the right dates. When does the ripened dates come in the summer in the heat, then you have this ripened dates. So it is agreed upon by the scholars that December 25 is not the birthday of Christ. It is the time of the pagan gods of the winter.

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

They drink and they fight. Why do you think on Christmas? So many people die on the road in accidents? Because they're drinking alcohol? There is more people who are killed, more people who are raped, more houses that are robbed, more lying and stealing and cheating, which is done around Christmas time than any time of the year. Is that Jesus? No.

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

Is that he saw a slam No. He was a mighty messenger of Allah.

00:17:23--> 00:17:51

That is not the time of Esau lays it out is the time of the pagan gods of the machete keen. That is why they put up the trees but the Christian church when they saw the mushrikeen were gaining power. They banned Christmas up until 1647. The Parliament here in the UK, they said no Christmas. It's against the law. And they would not allow them to celebrate the Christmas vacation.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

They would not allow them to do that.

00:17:56--> 00:18:00

And so they changed. They took that the magic of Christmas

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

and they put it on January.

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

Why did they choose January?

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

You will see when you study history. January was named after the pagan god Janice. And Janice is the person with two faces. He shows you one face, but he has another face. He's a deceiver.

00:18:26--> 00:18:29

And that is what we are in now a time of deception.

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

The process of them also said taggi do Min sharara ness

00:18:35--> 00:19:12

yarmulke Mati Angela de la chain. Alevi Yachty How will it be watching? We'll have all that up watch. Oh, come on call a subtle slur. He said you will find the most hated and despicable of people on the Day of Resurrection is the watch chain. He has two faces. He comes to one person with one face one group and it goes to another with another face. He comes inside the masjid. You see him in the masjid. You see him in his home. And He is a good boy. He has Bilal. Bilal is a good Muslim.

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

Ali is there Asya but when Bilal goes outside to his friends, he puts the hat on Bilbao becomes Billy's

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

Mohammed becomes mo

00:19:29--> 00:19:45

asiyah becomes Asia. And he changes. You thought he was a nice Bilaal inside here. And then he goes down to traverse Trafalgar Square. Around 12 o'clock is no Bilaal anymore. There is Billy

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

this is two faces. A lady Yachty How old are you be watch him. We'll have let it be watch. He comes to one group at one face and to another group with another face. He's a hypocrite.

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

He won't tell you about his real self. And so this pagan holiday is set up to confuse you. They say, Oh, it's happiness of the new year. It is not the new year. And secondly, when the happiness comes, they drink alcohol.

00:20:17--> 00:20:37

When New Year's come, they say take a drink. They have proven now, a new study has come out in Canada. And it has shown alcohol is more dangerous to a person than cocaine and heroin. This new study, alcohol is more dangerous than cocaine.

00:20:39--> 00:20:44

It is more dangerous than heroin. It is drugs in liquid form.

00:20:45--> 00:20:51

When you take the drugs, when you take the alcohol, it ruins your body. It destroys your liver.

00:20:52--> 00:21:22

It destroys your ability to think right? You can't walk straight, you get in a car, you get an accident. The man comes home and he fights his wife. He beats his children, he rapes he cannot see straight, it destroys them. And then he wants to drink some more alcohol. So he continues, he is a drug addict. He is worse than a person on heroin and cocaine. But they will tell you he had no alcohol is a good thing.

00:21:23--> 00:21:38

If you have a problem, take a drink. And your problem will go away. It's alive. When you drink alcohol and become drunk, your problem does not go away. And the next day you have a headache, and your problem is worse.

00:21:39--> 00:21:48

So it is a lie and a confusion, which is being spread around in the name of a good season. That is the illusion.

00:21:49--> 00:21:54

And so Muslims today are called upon to break the illusion.

00:21:55--> 00:22:05

He has to deal with reality. That means when we read the Quran, you need to read it not just as a book that you read for 10 hour.

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

You don't just read it, as one of the great scholars of the Sahara Desert used to say you want to be sincere to the court and you need three things. tahseen tilawat, he was the duckburg iottie he was it's a woman he three things. You read it in a beautiful way with Tajweed.

00:22:28--> 00:22:46

Secondly, to double it, you have to think about it reflect, reflect on the verses don't just read it and put it away. Think about what it said. And finally, it's about our MIDI he you have to follow what it is saying

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

you have to follow it.

00:22:49--> 00:22:53

So we are at a very critical point in our history.

00:22:54--> 00:23:02

The life of this world the dunya is on us. We are suffering from either too much money or too little money.

00:23:03--> 00:23:15

We're in extremes. And Allah told us well Malhotra dunya Illa Allah tala hurrah. The life of this world is nothing but material deception.

00:23:16--> 00:23:50

And so we need to seek refuge in the court and to deal with our present situation. What is the divine formula for our present situation? You need to look at the life of the prophet SAW Selim understand what he did understand the revelation that came. I want to share with you just one section from this divine revelation, which will give us a formula or divine formula to deal with the highest dunya and to deal with the problems we are facing.

00:23:51--> 00:24:07

In surah, two shorter verses 36 to 39. Allah azza wa jal is telling us our rules will be laying him in a shade on the regime for my booty to min Shay in for Metatron. Higher to dunya Omar en de la he failed on

00:24:08--> 00:24:37

La Vina amanu will allow to be him yet to walk alone when Athena yet yet stanny buena kebab ism well for what is what is our hottie boo homeopathy rune. Well Nadine esta Jabu lira be him. We are commerce salat wa Umbra, whom Shura baina whom were Mimara sokhna han unifi Khun Lena, either a Sabah homeopathy, homeopathy rune. This is a divine formula.

00:24:38--> 00:24:43

What is inside of this, Allah tells us whatever you are given

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

in this world is but enjoyment of this life. But that which is with Allah is better and more lasting. It is for those who believe and put their trust in the Lord. Those who have

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

Avoid the major sins and indecency. And when they are angry, even then they forgive those who respond to the Lord and establish regular prayer and conduct their affairs by mutual consultation. And from what we have given them, they spent, and those who went and oppressive wrong is done to them. They stand up

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

and they defend themselves. This is a divine formula.

00:25:31--> 00:25:36

What is it telling us? This is a program for survival.

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

We need to survive outside, there is traps waiting for you.

00:25:43--> 00:26:06

There are traps of drugs, there are traps of alcohol. There are traps of gambling. There are traps of HIV AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases. There are traps of homelessness, there are traps of racism. How can you survive this? Allah subhanaw taala has given us a survival program.

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

What is the survival program number one,

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

to recognize that the life of this world is a deception. Well, manhyia to dunya Illa Metatron hora, it is a test. We live in the dunya for a short period of time.

00:26:27--> 00:26:29

Just a short period of time.

00:26:30--> 00:26:35

If a person lives to be 100 years old, that's a long time he lived.

00:26:37--> 00:26:43

But compare his 100 years to the next life, which is eternal life

00:26:44--> 00:26:49

as a lot described, Holly Dena Fie Ha. A button.

00:26:50--> 00:26:54

They will live in the next life forever.

00:26:55--> 00:27:05

Compare it if you divide the next life divided by the life of this world today. And your answer is zero.

00:27:06--> 00:27:44

That the life of this world is nothing the promises seldom said lk Yes. mandanna nafsa Camila Lima baldon. mote well, McMahon atva nafsa hoo ha ha. What's Amanda Allah Hi, Amanda. The process of them said, l k is the intelligent person is the one who controls himself. And he works for the life after death. You see the long one. But the muck, the idiot, the fool, is the one who lets himself go. And then he hopes allow forgive him an yet he's a fool.

00:27:46--> 00:27:52

Because this life is only short. The next life that is the real life.

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

That is the real time of existence. Our existence here is a short time,

00:27:59--> 00:28:07

but we are fooled in it. And so Allah tells us, whatever you have been given in this world, it is Metatron hayata dunya.

00:28:08--> 00:28:25

But the dat which is with Allah will last eternally. If you do something for Allah, you spend in the path of Allah, you give your life for a lot, you do something that will last forever. The money you spend here is you spend it is gone.

00:28:26--> 00:28:57

You buy something and it's gone. You buy new pants, you buy new shoes, you buy a new cell phone, and you put it down, somebody steals your cell phone or you drop your cell phone, it's gone, it's in the water is destroyed. That's how the life and the heights of dunya is. Secondly, in the survival program, the condition for the benefit in the survival program is two things. Allah Vina amanu is it is Eman and tawakkol.

00:28:58--> 00:29:06

That you believe in Allah and you depend upon Allah subhanaw taala these are conditions.

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

Number three.

00:29:09--> 00:29:20

The further qualities is TNF Alpha Kappa is staying away from the major sins. Stay away from shirk.

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

polytheism or Sahar magic, staying away from eating interest,

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

eating the wealth of orphans

00:29:34--> 00:29:41

accusing innocent Muslim women of wrong deeds running away on the battlefield.

00:29:42--> 00:29:54

Allah Kaaba is study al kabaya. Allah is saying this is the survival program if you want to survive here, find out what the Cabal are and stay away from them.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

Next, a lot tells us avoid

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

Alpha Hush. Stay away from indecency and immorality. Look at what the society is giving to you. You look at the billboard, it has nakedness. You turn on the television nakedness on the internet nakedness. You watch the movie and they fall in love. They're fighting aliens out in space, and they fall in love. They're playing cricket and soccer and somebody falls in love. They're fighting our animals, they fall in love. Why do they always fall in love? Why?

00:30:34--> 00:30:51

Think about it, why in every movie, they must fall in love. It's erotica. It's from arrows, which is one of the gods of the Greeks. It is to make you think of your animal self. To keep you on the level of an animal like a dog.

00:30:52--> 00:30:56

It keeps you on an animal level. So you cannot think about a law.

00:30:57--> 00:31:20

That is the reason why Islam tells us You should dress properly, lower the gaze, purify yourself, protect yourself, not just women, men also have to protect themselves. They have to dress properly, they have to lower their gaze. And by doing that, you will be protected. I was living in South Africa for 10 years.

00:31:21--> 00:31:30

And in some parts of South Africa, one out of every three of the population is HIV positive. one of three.

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

How is it being spread?

00:31:34--> 00:31:37

Because people do not protect themselves.

00:31:38--> 00:31:42

It spreads through Xena through adultery and fornication.

00:31:43--> 00:31:51

And when they do that the punishment comes. And so staying away from alpha hische avoid indecency.

00:31:53--> 00:31:55

And that does not just mean don't commit adultery.

00:31:56--> 00:32:10

Allah subhanaw taala tells us while that Takata bozena in the who kennefa he shuttin was such a sybilla do not come close to Zilla, he didn't say don't do it. He said Don't come near it.

00:32:12--> 00:32:36

So if there's something that leads you to it, avoid it. Because that is the trap that the evil one wants you to fall in. You fall in the trap, and you have an unwanted pregnancy. You have sexual transmitted diseases, your life is ruined. Your future is destroyed. For a few minutes of of pleasure. Well, Mel hayata, dunya illa metalphoto.

00:32:38--> 00:32:52

The next point is an interesting point. And we need this today. It says Who are the people who will survive? It is those that when they are angry, they forgive?

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

What is our Honey Boo me aka feed on.

00:32:56--> 00:32:59

If we get angry, we want to destroy somebody.

00:33:01--> 00:33:25

We are angry. And we say No, he's not in my school of thought. He's not in my Islamic movement. He did. My chef is not his chef. He's not my tribe. He's not my nation, he doesn't speak my language. And so we get angry and we lose control of ourselves. When you are angry at the point of that job. Forgive them.

00:33:26--> 00:33:34

Forgive them. That is the example of the prophet SAW seldom when he went to a doctor if they stoned him.

00:33:36--> 00:33:40

They stoned him until the blood ran down in his sandals.

00:33:41--> 00:34:07

And the angel of the mountain came to him and said I will destroy this people in words. And the process of them said do not destroy them. Maybe there's somebody amongst them who will worship a lot one God and not associate partners. And he lived to see that people have a thought of coming to Islam in crowds. They came in large numbers he lived to see this. He forgave them.

00:34:08--> 00:34:12

So Muslim number one, we need to forgive each other.

00:34:13--> 00:34:21

You need to see another Muslim he does something different to you. He says something against you forgive him. That is the way of Islam

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

have mercy upon each other.

00:34:25--> 00:34:32

We will have to embrace people who come from another culture. Some of them are enemies

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

and you have to embrace them.

00:34:36--> 00:34:41

It is reported in the 13th century that the Mongols Alma who

00:34:42--> 00:34:47

they came into the Muslim world and they killed millions of people.

00:34:48--> 00:34:53

They would come to a city and cut off all the people's heads and put it in a pile

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

and a lot of raised up sayfudine kudos for

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

Egypt, he united the Muslims

00:35:03--> 00:35:06

and they defeated the Mongols and I enjoy loot.

00:35:07--> 00:35:19

But after they defeated the Mongols they gave Dawa to the Mongols and some of the Mongols became Muslims. So now they had to embrace people who murdered them.

00:35:20--> 00:35:24

But some of these Mongols became great leaders in Islam.

00:35:25--> 00:35:38

That is the forgiveness that is our message we do not judge people It is Allah azza wa jal who will judge, Allah knows what is in the heart of a person. Our job is to give the message

00:35:39--> 00:35:42

when they are angry, they forgive.

00:35:44--> 00:35:50

The next point is killing my job Jamia? It says well levinas the job only Robbie him

00:35:51--> 00:36:04

is the job they respond to the Lord. When you hear something, you learn some new things respond to it. You learn a new part of the Sunnah, put it in your life.

00:36:05--> 00:36:24

You get knowledge from the court and put it into your life tahseen talathi with the de iottie it by our family, follow it. Don't just say Oh, that was a good speech. That was a beautiful idea. Put it in your life. If Allah said don't do it, don't do it.

00:36:25--> 00:36:35

If Allah said Do it, do it. respond to your Lord respond and all the things and then Allah tells us

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

a comet to salaat they establish prayers in their life, not just on special occasions. They establish a regular rhythm of salaat in their life. They don't base this a lot on their job. They make sure they have a time to make their prayers. If they're at school. If there are jobs wherever they are, they established a lot. Number eight, Shura.

00:37:06--> 00:37:28

amerihome Shura baina home, they establish consultation. They talk to each other. Many of the problems in our families is because the husband does not talk to his wife. He will not talk to his wife. He stays out a long period of time with the brothers in the coffee shop.

00:37:29--> 00:37:32

Some people they chew on their clocks, they do the chat

00:37:33--> 00:37:38

and he chews and he comes home after 24 hours from chewing.

00:37:39--> 00:37:46

And he doesn't say anything nice to his family. He comes in he does not talk to his wife. He does not kiss his children.

00:37:47--> 00:37:52

He does not bring milk because he's chewing the cot like a drug addict.

00:37:55--> 00:38:12

He doesn't have the love in his heart. The problem is sure if his wife said I want to talk sit down with your wife and take shorter listen to her position. Maybe she has something to say to you, which is better than what you know.

00:38:13--> 00:38:29

Even the prophet SAW Selim took shorter with his wives and is reported on selama rhodiola one Hmm. And many of the of the Sahaba the wives of process Allah they would give him Shura. They would give him advice. He takes the advice

00:38:30--> 00:38:54

Shura. So we need to talk our families we need to talk to each other parents need to talk to these young children talk to the young people they speak a different language. These young kids they play with the with the with the computer and the cell phone. There's a new generation I was born in what they call bc sounds like it means before computers

00:38:56--> 00:39:02

or you could say I was born in in B FB before Facebook.

00:39:04--> 00:39:15

This new generation now with with computers and Facebook, they think in a different way. So we need to take shorter with them because they know some things we don't know.

00:39:16--> 00:39:30

So take sure what the young people ask them what they need. What is their opinion what do they need to solve their problem? Don't just tell them take sure that the good Amir take shorter what is Gemma

00:39:31--> 00:39:40

and then he follows the best decision. It is reported that when the mushrikeen of kodesh came to Medina they were attacking Medina.

00:39:41--> 00:39:48

The two sides of Medina the eastern side and the western side is covered by Hydra, molten lava.

00:39:49--> 00:39:53

The southern side was covered by the yahood but the northern side was open.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

So we took sure with his companions and salmonella, fantasy rhodiola one

00:40:00--> 00:40:24

He said in our country, when we are surrounded by a large enemy, we build 100. Duck. We build a trench around us. And it makes the large numbers small. They have to jump over the trench. It's a moat. They would say in here in England, we build a moat 100 duck, the process seldom took shorter from Salmond, he is not out to be.

00:40:26--> 00:40:29

But the process of them took his opinion.

00:40:30--> 00:40:49

And He instituted this he took sure what his companions and respected them regardless of their nationality. And so sure, in all the fears, domestic affairs, community affairs in our countries, this is one of our problems with our leaders. They will not take shorter with the people.

00:40:50--> 00:40:54

They do not represent the people. They're afraid of their own people.

00:40:55--> 00:41:04

And many of the leaders they drive in their cars. And they when they come out, the police come and they they lie in the streets two days before he comes. What is he afraid of?

00:41:06--> 00:41:22

When they wanted to give Jerusalem to the Muslims. They sent a delegation to Medina and they said Where is America? My name is and they said there is Omar macabre de la when he's sleeping under a tree. There is right there. He has no fear of his people.

00:41:23--> 00:41:47

Because he takes Shura. He takes their opinion, he corrects himself. He is humble. That is the leadership in Islam. That is the only way we're gonna survive. If you think you're better than your people because you're the Imam or because you're the Amir, you make a mistake. say they'll come hardy Mohan. The leader of the tribe is the one that serves the people.

00:41:48--> 00:41:50

He's not fit on on top of the people.

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

Number nine,

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

they never forget

00:41:59--> 00:42:04

to give when mimar is up now home, Yun frequent.

00:42:05--> 00:42:53

Allah gives us wealth, he gives up some money. It is an Amanda it is a trust, which is put into our hands. And we should give it to the people give sadaqa and we should constantly be giving of ourselves, the time we are running in in the world in this world. We are running into a time of great crisis. Great crisis. The crisis will continue and if you have wealth, it's an amendment to give it to the people. And the final point is that either a Saba human body omean chassis rune, if they are oppressed, they stand up and they defend themselves. That is the personality of a Muslim. We don't attack other people, but we have the right to defend ourselves.

00:42:54--> 00:43:13

It is a right given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so this present situation is a very difficult one. It means that you have to do something which is different than the people. Tonight is New Year's. Where will you be? Will you be in Trafalgar Square?

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

Will you be drinking?

00:43:17--> 00:43:21

Will they go around and they will dance in front of the light with the sun worshipers.

00:43:22--> 00:43:28

But will they be remembering their Lord? If you don't go with them? You seem strange.

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

The people are taking off their clothes.

00:43:32--> 00:43:38

They were in miniskirts? If you wear long clothes, you seem strange.

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

The men are changing how they look.

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

If you grow a beard, and you're a man, you seem strange.

00:43:48--> 00:44:42

You pray during the week. That is strange. But you know what the process of them said in Islam a better or even worse a year or even for to Berlin hurrah. The most of them said Islam began strange, and it will return to being strange. So glad tidings to the strangers. Bushra for the hurrah. But they said jasola who was the horrible? He said Allah Xena usili honer. In the facade, the NES, they are the people who repair. They repair themselves. They repair society when the people have become corrupted. So Dakota Salalah alayhi salatu salam, it has come to pass. The society has now become corrupted. And the Hurrah other people who do Islam

00:44:44--> 00:44:48

we repair our relations. We repair society.

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

We will give good solutions to the problems people are facing in society. That is what they are waiting for. That is what Islam has for the world. A solution to this

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

Spiritual problem, a solution to the economic problem, a solution to racism, a solution to homelessness, a solution to alcohol and drug substance abuse, a solution to gambling, addiction to gambling. That is what Islam has to provide to the world. We need to come out of our shell and show the world the real Islam.

00:45:25--> 00:46:05

I leave you with these thoughts. And I asked Allah azza wa jal to have mercy on the oma of Mohammed Salah Salah. We asked a lot to protect the children of the oma Mohammed says Allah. May Allah protect the women of the womb of Mohammed Salah. May Allah protect and strengthen the men of the womb of Mohammed so solemn, may Allah raise up in this Muslim world a leader who will take us from darkness into light. And may Allah azza wa jal give strength to this ummah. And let us be the example for all of humanity. And finally, may Allah make our last words our best words. May Allah make our last words to be Kelly ma la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:46:05--> 00:46:10

akula Kali howdah Rostock for LA Li walakum wa salaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:46:12--> 00:46:13

Kate's another tribe.

00:46:14--> 00:46:27

One country hates another country. But if we practice Islam, it should take us away from racism, away from tribalism, away from the hatred of a person because of the color of their skin.

00:46:28--> 00:46:55

The process of them said very clearly there is no preference of the Arabs over the non Arabs or the non Arabs over the Arabs. There's no preference of white over black or the opposite in Arabic taqwa It is only with taqwa that we see a difference between human beings. And so we have this beautiful system to give to the world. We have large numbers, we have wealth, but there is an illusion.

00:46:57--> 00:47:35

There is an illusion being painted in front of us. The first reality we have to deal with is in ourselves. That is the first reality. As we cry for change. We cry for economic change. We cry for political change. We cry for Islamic social system, Islamic banking, but Allah told us in Allahu Allah you hey you Roma Coleman. tell you how you do maybe unfussy him, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves. It's in the heart. That is where the change begins. But in front of us is an illusion.

00:47:36--> 00:48:30

There is a false world which is being painted in front of us. It comes on television, in the movies. And now on Facebook, on Twitter, it comes in the new social networking, coming to our people and the prophet SAW Selim did not speak from himself. The Prophet peace be upon him spoke from above seven heavens will my young Chico and an hour in Hua Illa Hua one you have? He did not speak from himself. But revelation comes through him and he gives it to you. The prophet SAW seldom said in authentic hadith reported in October Ronnie yaku newfie akkad is a man kept the boon that jello yeah to local Manila Hadith. Pema lamb testimo and tamala, Coco for Yakumo yahoomail au deluna calm while our

00:48:30--> 00:49:16

youth tiene una Co. The prophet SAW Selim said they will come near the end of time, great liars, like false Christs, false prophets. They will come to you with a type of speech that neither you nor your parents have ever heard of before. Beware of them. Beware that they take you astray. Beware that they put you into a fitna a trial and tribulation. So dakara Salalah alayhi salatu salam, it has come to pass. What did the Prophet say they will come to you with a type of speech that neither you nor your parents have ever heard of before. Digital technology.

00:49:18--> 00:49:22

Now they have the ability to make false things seem real.

00:49:24--> 00:49:35

And to make what is true, appear to be false. They can take your picture, they can take your voice, they can put words in your mouth and they can make a picture and you didn't say it

00:49:37--> 00:49:39

but people will think it is real.

00:49:41--> 00:49:50

Be aware of them. Be aware that they take you a straight and beware that they put you into a fitna This is an illusion.

00:49:51--> 00:49:56

Tonight they say it is New Year's Eve

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

and the people are gathering around

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

To celebrate the coming of a new year, it is a lie.

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

It is not the New Year's. How can you say this?

00:50:12--> 00:50:19

Because when you count when you go back to the early calendars used by the European people

00:50:20--> 00:50:40

in Latin language in the Roman calendar, September is from septum. It's seven. October is eight like octagon eight sides, right? November is nine, and December is 10.

00:50:42--> 00:51:10

That means January is the 11th month and February is the 12th. The new year was originally in March. Why is it now January 1? Why are they deceiving us? Why is an illusion you think it's the new year they go and they see the ball go up. And they say now It's a new year and they laugh and they drink alcohol and they commit adultery and they rape and they murder. It's a new year.

00:51:11--> 00:51:13

It is not the New Year.

00:51:15--> 00:52:07

Number one, it is the time of the winter season. December 25. It used to be their ceremony of the Bacchanalia and the Saturnalia. They used to worship the sun god because it is so cold in the winter. As we live here in these countries. It is so cold the darkness is long. So they used to pray to the sun god to come back. And they put up Christmas trees in their houses as a type of taneema a type of amulet to protect them from evil things and give them life inside of their homes. It is not the birthday of Christ's Easter they Salaam was born in the warm weather. The Christians will tell you when Jesus was born, the shepherds had their flocks outside you can't keep your animals outside

00:52:07--> 00:52:51

and Philistine at this time at night. It's too cold. He was born in the warm weather they were paying taxes that means that they're their plants were ripened in the Quranic our discussion Merriam may have luck may Allah be pleased with her. Allah sent a message to her that she should go to the nephila. She should shake the palm tree, and she would get the roots of she would get the right dates. When does the ripened dates come in the summer in the heat, then you have this ripen dates. So it is agreed upon by the scholars that December 25 is not the birthday of Christ. It is the time of the pagan gods of the winter.

00:52:52--> 00:53:17

They drink and they fight. Why do you think on Christmas? So many people die on the road in accidents? Because they're drinking alcohol? There is more people who are killed, more people who are raped, more houses that are robbed, more lying and stealing and cheating, which is done around Christmas time than any time of the year. Is that Jesus No.

00:53:18--> 00:53:23

Is that he saw a slam No. He was a mighty messenger of Allah.

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

That is not the time of Isa de Sala. It is the time of the pagan gods of the mushrikeen. That is why they put up the trees but the Christian church when they saw the mushrikeen were gaining power. They banned Christmas up until 1647. The Parliament here in the UK, they said no Christmas, it's against the law and they would not allow them to celebrate the Christmas vacation.

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

They would not allow them to do that.

00:53:57--> 00:54:02

And so they changed. They took that that the magic of Christmas

00:54:03--> 00:54:05

and they put it on January.

00:54:07--> 00:54:09

Why did they choose January?

00:54:10--> 00:54:26

You will see when you study history. January was named after the pagan god Janice and Janice is the person with two faces. He shows you one face but he has another face. He's a deceiver.

00:54:28--> 00:54:31

And that is what we are in now a time of deception.

00:54:32--> 00:55:00

The process also said techy do Min sharada ness, yarmulke Mati and the law, the law chain Alevi Yachty How will it be watching? We'll have that up watch. Oh, come up all the subtle stuff he said you will find the most hated and despicable of people on the Day of Resurrection is do what chain he has two faces. He comes to one person with one face one group

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

And he goes to another with another face. He comes inside the masjid. You see him in the masjid. You see him in his home. And He is a good boy. He is Beloved. Beloved as a good Muslim

00:55:15--> 00:55:23

as he is there Asya but when Bilbao goes outside to his friends, he puts the hat on Bilbao becomes Billy

00:55:27--> 00:55:28

Mohammed becomes mo

00:55:30--> 00:55:47

asiyah becomes Asia. And he changes. You thought he was a nice Bilaal inside here. And then he goes down to traverse Trafalgar Square. Around 12 o'clock is no Bilaal anymore. There is Billy,

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

this is two faces. A lady Yachty. How old are you be watch him, we'll have that up watch. He comes to one group with one face, and to another group with another face. He's a hypocrite.

00:56:02--> 00:56:18

He won't tell you about his real self. And so this pagan holiday is set up to confuse you. They say Oh, it's happiness of the new year. It is not the new year. And secondly, when the happiness comes, they drink alcohol.

00:56:19--> 00:56:39

When New Year's come, they say take a drink. They have proven now a new study has come out in Canada. And it has shown alcohol is more dangerous to a person than cocaine and heroin. This new study, alcohol is more dangerous than cocaine.

00:56:40--> 00:56:45

It is more dangerous than heroin. It is drugs in liquid form.

00:56:46--> 00:56:52

When you take the drugs, when you take the alcohol, it ruins your body, it destroys your liver.

00:56:54--> 00:57:23

It destroys your ability to think right? You can't walk straight, you get in the car, you get an accident. The man comes home and he fights his wife. He beats his children, he rapes he cannot see straight. It destroys me then he wants to drink some more alcohol. So he continues, he is a drug addict. He is worse than a person on heroin and cocaine. But they will tell you he had no alcohol is a good thing.

00:57:25--> 00:57:39

If you have a problem, take a drink. And your problem will go away. It's alive. When you drink the alcohol and become drunk, your problem does not go away. And the next day you have a headache, and your problem is worse.

00:57:40--> 00:57:50

So it is a lie and a confusion, which is being spread around in the name of a good season. That is the illusion.

00:57:51--> 00:57:56

And so Muslims today are called upon to break the illusion.

00:57:57--> 00:58:06

He has to deal with reality. That means when we read the core n, you need to read it not just as a book that you read for tilava.

00:58:08--> 00:58:28

You don't just read it, as one of the great scholars of the Sahara Desert used to say you want to be sincere to the court and you need three things. tahseen tilawat, he was a double iottie he was it's by a woman he three things. You read it in a beautiful way with Tajweed.

00:58:30--> 00:58:47

Secondly, to double it, you have to think about it reflect, reflect on the verses don't just read it and put it away. Think about what it said. And finally, it's about our MIDI, he you have to follow what it is saying.

00:58:48--> 00:58:49

You have to follow it.

00:58:51--> 00:58:54

So we are at a very critical point in our history.

00:58:55--> 00:59:04

The life of this world, the dunya is on us. We are suffering from either too much money or too little money.

00:59:05--> 00:59:17

We're in extremes. And Allah told us we're Malhotra dunya ilimitado. The life of this world is nothing but material deception.

00:59:18--> 01:00:00

And so we need to seek refuge in the court and to deal with our present situation. What is the divine formula for our present situation? You need to look at the life of the prophet SAW Selim understand what he did understand the revelation that came. I want to share with you just one section from this divine revelation, which will give us a formula a divine formula to deal with the highest junior and to deal with the problems we are facing. In surah two shorter verses 36 to 39. Allah azza wa jal is telling us our

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

01:00:40--> 01:00:44

What is inside of this, Allah tells us, whatever you are given

01:00:46--> 01:01:24

in this world is but enjoyment of this life. But that which is with Allah is better and more lasting. It is for those who believe and put their trust in their Lord, those who avoid the major sins and indecency. And when they are angry, even then they forgive those who respond to the Lord and establish regular prayer and conduct their affairs by mutual consultation. And from what we have given them, they spent and those who went and oppressive wrong is done to them.

01:01:25--> 01:01:26

They stand up

01:01:27--> 01:01:31

and they defend themselves. This is a divine formula.

01:01:33--> 01:01:37

What is it telling us? This is a program for survival.

01:01:39--> 01:01:43

We need to survive outside. There is traps waiting for you.

01:01:44--> 01:02:07

There are traps of drugs, there are traps of alcohol. There are traps of gambling. There are traps of HIV AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases. There are traps of homelessness, there are traps of racism. How can you survive this? Allah subhanaw taala has given us a survival program.

01:02:08--> 01:02:10

What is the survival program number one

01:02:12--> 01:02:27

to recognize that the life of this world is a deception. Well, Malhotra dunya Illa matar hoorah. It is a test. We live in the dunya for a short period of time.

01:02:28--> 01:02:30

Just a short period of time.

01:02:31--> 01:02:37

If a person lives to be 100 years old, that's a long time he lived.

01:02:38--> 01:02:45

But compare his 100 years to the next life, which is eternal life.

01:02:46--> 01:02:50

As Allah describes Kali Dena, Fie ha, Abaddon.

01:02:52--> 01:02:55

They will live in the next life forever.

01:02:56--> 01:03:06

Compare it if you divide the next life divided by the life of this world today. And your answer is zero.

01:03:08--> 01:03:46

That the life of this world is nothing the province will seldom said lk Yes. mandanna nafsa Camila Lima Belgian mote well mcmunn at ba ba hoo ha ha. What's Amanda? Amanda, the process of them said l k is the intelligent person is the one who controls himself. And he works for the life after death. You see the long one. But the muck, the idiot, the fool is the one who lets himself go. And then he hopes Allah will forgive him and yet he's a fool.

01:03:47--> 01:03:54

Because this life is only short. The next life that is the real life.

01:03:55--> 01:03:59

That is the real time of existence. Our existence here is a short time,

01:04:00--> 01:04:08

but we are fooled in it. And so Allah tells us, whatever you have been given in this world, it is Metallica to dunya

01:04:09--> 01:04:26

but the dat which is with Allah will last eternally. If you do something for Allah, you spend in the path of Allah, you give your life for Allah, you do something that will last forever. The money you spend here is you spend it is gone.

01:04:27--> 01:04:37

You buy something and it's gone. You buy new pants, you buy new shoes, you buy a new cell phone, and you put it down, somebody steals your cell phone

01:04:39--> 01:04:59

or you drop your cell phone, it's gone, it's in the water is destroyed. That's how the life and the highest to dunya is. Secondly, in the survival program. The condition for the benefit in the survival program is two things. Allah Xena amanu is it is a man and tobacco

01:05:00--> 01:05:07

That you believe in Allah and you depend upon Allah subhanaw taala these are conditions.

01:05:08--> 01:05:09

Number three,

01:05:10--> 01:05:21

the further qualities, ht NAB l Kabbalah is staying away from the major sins, stay away from shirk.

01:05:23--> 01:05:31

polytheism I see her magic, staying away from eating interest,

01:05:32--> 01:05:34

eating the wealth of orphans,

01:05:35--> 01:05:42

accusing innocent Muslim women of wrong deeds running away on the battlefield.

01:05:44--> 01:05:55

Allah Kaaba is study Allah Tobias. Allah is saying, This is the survival program. If you want to survive here, find out what the Kabbalah is, and stay away from them.

01:05:56--> 01:06:33

Next, a lot tells us avoid alpha Hush. Stay away from indecency and immorality. Look at what the society is giving to you. You look at the billboard, it has nakedness. You turn on the television nakedness. On the internet nakedness. You watch the movie and they fall in love. They're fighting aliens out in space, and they fall in love. They're playing cricket and soccer and somebody falls in love. They're fighting our animals, they fall in love. Why do they always fall in love? Why?

01:06:36--> 01:06:52

Think about it, why in every movie, they must fall in love. It's erotica. It's from arrows, which is one of the gods of the Greeks. It is to make you think of your animal self, to keep you on the level of an animal like a dog.

01:06:54--> 01:07:22

It keeps you on an animal level. So you cannot think about Allah. That is the reason why Islam tells us You should dress properly, lower the gaze, purify yourself, protect yourself, not just women, men also have to protect themselves. They have to dress properly, they have to lower their gaze. And by doing that, you will be protected. I was living in South Africa for 10 years.

01:07:23--> 01:07:31

And in some parts of South Africa, one out of every three of the population is HIV positive. one of three.

01:07:32--> 01:07:34

How is it being spread,

01:07:35--> 01:07:38

because people do not protect themselves.

01:07:39--> 01:07:43

It spreads through Xena through adultery and fornication.

01:07:44--> 01:07:53

And when they do that the punishment comes. And so staying away from LFR hische. Avoid indecency.

01:07:54--> 01:07:57

And that does not just mean don't commit adultery.

01:07:58--> 01:08:12

Allah subhanaw taala tells us while our Takata bozena. In Yahoo, Canada, he shuttered WhatsApp sybilla do not come close to Zima. He didn't say don't do it. He said Don't come near it.

01:08:13--> 01:08:38

So if there's something that leads you to it, avoid it, because that is the trap that the evil one wants you to fall in. You fall in the trap, and you have an unwanted pregnancy. You have sexual transmitted diseases, your life is ruined. Your future is destroyed. For a few minutes of pleasure. Well, Mel hayata dunya illa metalphoto.

01:08:39--> 01:08:53

The next point is an interesting point. And we need this today. It says, Who are the people who will survive? It is those that when they are angry, they forgive?

01:08:55--> 01:08:57

What is up Paddy? bhumika feed on.

01:08:58--> 01:09:01

If we get angry, we want to destroy somebody.

01:09:02--> 01:09:27

We are angry. And we say No, he's not in my school of thought. He's not in my Islamic movement. He did. My chef is not his chef. He's not my tribe. He's not my nation. He doesn't speak my language. And so we get angry and we lose control of ourselves. When you are angry at the point of that dub. Forgive them.

01:09:28--> 01:09:36

Forgive them. That is the example of the prophet SAW seldom when he went to a doctor if they stoned him.

01:09:37--> 01:09:41

They stoned him until the blood ran down in his sentence.

01:09:43--> 01:10:00

And the angel the mountain came to him and said I will destroy this people in words and the process of them said do not destroy them. Maybe there's somebody amongst them who will worship a lot one God and not associate partners and he lived to see the people

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

Have a thought of coming to Islam in crowds. They came in large numbers he lived to see this, he forgave them.

01:10:10--> 01:10:13

So Muslim number one, we need to forgive each other.

01:10:14--> 01:10:22

You need to see another Muslim, he does something different to you. He says something against you forgive him. That is the way of Islam

01:10:24--> 01:10:26

have mercy upon each other.

01:10:27--> 01:10:33

We will have to embrace people who come from another culture. Some of them are enemies

01:10:35--> 01:10:36

and you have to embrace them.

01:10:37--> 01:10:43

It is reported in the 13th century that the mangoes Alma who

01:10:44--> 01:10:49

they came into the Muslim world and they killed millions of people.

01:10:50--> 01:10:55

They would come to a city and cut off all the people's heads and put in a pile

01:10:57--> 01:11:07

and a lot of raised up sayfudine Curtis from Egypt, he united the Muslims and they defeated the Mongols and Angel loot.

01:11:08--> 01:11:21

But after they defeated the Mongols, they gave Dawa to the mangoes and some of the mangoes became Muslims. So now they had to embrace people who murdered them.

01:11:22--> 01:11:25

But some of these mangoes became great leaders in Islam.

01:11:27--> 01:11:39

That is the forgiveness that is our message we do not judge people It is Allah azza wa jal who will judge Allah knows what is in the heart of a person. Our job is to give the message

01:11:41--> 01:11:44

when they are angry, they forgive.

01:11:45--> 01:11:51

The next point is killing my job Jamia? It says well, laziness the job only Robbie him

01:11:53--> 01:12:05

is the job they respond to the Lord. When you hear something, you learn some new things respond to it. You learn a new part of the Sunnah, put it in your life.

01:12:06--> 01:12:25

You get knowledge from the court and put it into your life tahseen talathi with the de iottie it by awamori follow it. Don't just say Oh, that was a good speech. That was a beautiful idea. Put it in your life. If Allah said don't do it, don't do it.

01:12:26--> 01:13:05

If Allah said Do it, do it. respond to your Lord, respond and all the things. And then Allah tells us a comma to salaat. They establish prayers in their life, not just on special occasions. They establish a regular rhythm of salaat in their life. They don't base this a lot on their job. They make sure they have a time to make their prayers. If they're at school. If there are jobs wherever they are, they established a lot. Number eight Shura

01:13:07--> 01:13:29

Amaro home sure avena home, they establish consultation, they talk to each other. Many of the problems in our families is because the husband does not talk to his wife. He will not talk to his wife. He stays out a long period of time with the brothers in the coffee shop.

01:13:30--> 01:13:33

Some people they chew in their closets, they do the chat

01:13:35--> 01:13:39

and he chews and he comes home after 24 hours from chewing.

01:13:41--> 01:13:48

And he doesn't say anything nice to his family. He comes in he does not talk to his wife. He does not kiss his children.

01:13:49--> 01:13:53

He does not bring milk because he's chewing the cot like a drug addict.

01:13:56--> 01:14:13

He doesn't have the love in his heart. The problem is sure. If his wife said I want to talk sit down with your wife and take sure listen to her position. Maybe she has something to say to you, which is better than what you know.

01:14:14--> 01:14:30

Even the prophet SAW Selim took sure with his wives and is reported on selama rhodiola. One ha and many of the of the Sahaba. Yet the wives of process Allah they would give him Shura. They would give him advice. He takes the advice

01:14:31--> 01:14:56

szura. So we need to talk our families. We need to talk to each other. Parents need to talk to these young children. Talk to the young people. They speak a different language. These young kids they play with it with a with a computer and the cell phone. There's a new generation. I was born in what they call bc sounds like it means before computers

01:14:58--> 01:15:00

or you could say I was born into

01:15:00--> 01:15:03

NB FB before Facebook

01:15:05--> 01:15:16

this new generation now with with computers and Facebook, they think in a different way. So we need to take shorter with them because they know some things we don't know.

01:15:17--> 01:15:31

So take sure what the young people ask them what they need. What is their opinion? What do they need to solve their problem? Don't just tell them take sure that the good Amir take shorter what is Gemma

01:15:33--> 01:15:41

and then he follows the best decision. It is reported that when the machine of kodesh came to Medina, they were attacking Medina,

01:15:42--> 01:15:49

the two sides of Medina, the eastern side and the western side is covered by Hydra, multi lava.

01:15:50--> 01:15:55

The southern side was covered by the yahood. But the northern side was open.

01:15:56--> 01:16:26

So we took sure what his companions and sell manual fantasy rhodiola one, he said in our country, when we are surrounded by a large enemy, we build 100 duck. We build a trench around us, and it makes the large numbers small. They have to jump over the trench. It's a moat they would say in here in England, we build a moat 100 duck, the process seldom took shorter from Salmond he is not out of B

01:16:28--> 01:16:30

but the process of them took his opinion

01:16:31--> 01:16:50

any instituted this he took sure what his companions and he respected them regardless of their nationality. And so sure in all of his domestic affairs, community affairs in our countries, this is one of our problems with our leaders. They will not take shorter with the people.

01:16:51--> 01:16:55

They do not represent the people. They are afraid of their own people.

01:16:56--> 01:17:05

And many of the leaders they drive in their cars. And they when they come out, the police come and they they lie in the streets two days before he comes. What is he afraid of?

01:17:07--> 01:17:24

When they wanted to give Jerusalem to the Muslims. They sent a delegation to Medina and they said Where is America meaning? And they said there is Omar Katara de la he's sleeping under a tree. There he is right there. He has no fear of his people.

01:17:25--> 01:17:48

Because he takes Shura. He takes their opinion he corrects himself. He is humble. That is the leadership in Islam. That is the only way we're going to survive. If you think you're better than your people because you're the Imam or because you're the Amir you make a mistake. say they'll come Kadima Mohan, the leader of the tribe is the one that serves the people.

01:17:49--> 01:17:52

He's not fit our own on top of the people.

01:17:54--> 01:17:55

Number nine,

01:17:58--> 01:18:00

they never forget

01:18:01--> 01:18:05

to give when mimar is up now home, Yun frequent.

01:18:06--> 01:18:54

Allah gives us wealth. He gives up some money. It is an Amanda it is a trust, which is put into our hands. And we should give it to the people give sadaqa and we should constantly be giving of ourselves, the time we are running in in the world in this world. We are running into a time of great crisis. Great crisis. The crisis will continue and if you have wealth, it's an amendment to give it to the people. And the final point is that either a sob a human body, human chassis rune if they are oppressed, they stand up and they defend themselves. That is the personality of a Muslim. We don't attack other people, but we have the right to defend ourselves.

01:18:55--> 01:19:15

It is a right given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so this present situation is a very difficult one. It means that you have to do something which is different than the people. Tonight is New Year's. Where will you be? Will you be in Trafalgar Square?

01:19:16--> 01:19:17

Will you be drinking?

01:19:18--> 01:19:22

Will they go around and they will dance in front of the light with the sun worship is?

01:19:24--> 01:19:29

Or will they be remembering their Lord? If you don't go with them? You seem strange.

01:19:30--> 01:19:39

The people are taking off their clothes. They wear in miniskirts. If you wear long clothes, you seem strange.

01:19:41--> 01:19:43

The men are changing how they look.

01:19:44--> 01:19:48

If you grow a beard, and you're a man You seem strange.

01:19:49--> 01:19:59

You pray during the week. That is strange. But you know what the hell solemn said in Islam or better or even worse or your ooh hurt.

01:20:00--> 01:20:44

Even for to Berlin hurrah. The process of them said Islam began strange, and it will return to being strange. So glad tidings to the strangers. Bushra for the hurrah. But they said jasola who was the horrible? He said, Allah, Xena, usili Hunan in the facade ness. They are the people who repair. They repair themselves. They repair society when the people have become corrupted. So dakoda Salalah alayhi salatu salam, it has come to pass, the society has now become corrupted, and the Hurrah other people who do Islam

01:20:45--> 01:20:50

we repair our relations, we repair society.

01:20:51--> 01:21:25

We will give good solutions to the problems people are facing in society. That is what they are waiting for. That is what Islam has for the world. A solution to the spiritual problem, a solution to the economic problem, a solution to racism, a solution to homelessness, a solution to alcohol and drug substance abuse, a solution to gambling, addiction to gambling. That is what Islam has to provide to the world. We need to come out of our shell and show the world the real Islam.

01:21:26--> 01:22:07

I leave you with these thoughts. And I ask Allah azza wa jal to have mercy on the oma of Mohammed Salah. We asked a lot to protect the children of the Omar Mohammed cells Allah. May Allah protect the women of the Omar Mohammed Salah Salah. May Allah protect and strengthen the men of the oma of Mohamed Salah. May Allah raise up in this Muslim world a leader who will take us from darkness into light. And may Allah azza wa jal give strength to this oma and let us be the example for all of humanity. And finally, may Allah make our last words our best words. May Allah make our last words to be kelim a la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam aku locally Heather
