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

smilla rahmanir rahim

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

Allah Allah

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

sallallahu wasallam Allah foxhill mbi one more study sedara Muhammad Valley he was off the edge my Baba

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

Salaam wa aleikum wa rahmatullah.

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

hamdulillah.

00:00:25--> 00:00:56

It is a great honor, always for me to be here in this country with you, and to see you growing as Muslims and the changes that you are going through. And no doubt, to try to practice Islam, you know, in this world, with so much of this false construct around us, is not an easy task. And I pray that Allah subhanaw taala would make it easy for you to be able to overcome some of the difficulties, in many cases,

00:00:57--> 00:01:17

to make changes in our lives is not that difficult. If we make a good intention to Allah and pray to Allah subhanaw taala and then go forward for tawakkol, Allah depends on a lot and go forward for it. Because many of the changes that we need to make, really, a lot of it is psychological.

00:01:18--> 00:01:48

And we get habits, we develop habits, we have to do certain things, we have to eat certain things, and you develop habits, people eat food, and they must smoke a cigarette, you know, so you develop habits. And so you need to study our bodies, to study our chemistry, you know, and to see how we can change our blood chemistry, you know, you know, to purify it to clean it. And, you know, that may mean that we need to study, you know, some science, you know, and to understand something about the natural world.

00:01:50--> 00:02:02

One question is saying, My son always watches television and plays games on the computer, he doesn't pray or listen to Islamic matters. I always talk to him, but he doesn't listen, what should I do?

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

To him or for him? So he doesn't go away?

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

From what I'm saying? Well, I would say it's better that you do something for him and not to him.

00:02:14--> 00:02:59

Because just beating him is not really gonna, you know, solve the problem, because it's not really his fault, right? You cannot blame him for this. And I don't necessarily blame you, we're all caught up in the system. But really, we need to be able to provide alternatives. every issue that we have in front of us when we are saying no, especially to the younger generation, we need to provide viable alternatives for them. And so what we have found is that action oriented programs, more sports, and spending time with them, taking them places, you're getting them involved in natural things, action oriented, this can take them away from that, that, that habits of sitting in front of

00:02:59--> 00:03:47

the television, and just you know, it comes one direction at you, you're not an active participant, we want our young people to be active participants, and not just passive subjects, you know, who are being blasted by this, this beam of light. So really, you know, you can begin, you know, it's almost like drug addiction in the sense like you start cutting down the television, at certain points, and you can go slowly, and cutting the time down and provide alternatives. You know, and then, you know, slowly but surely, it starts to build until the person doesn't need to have it. But to immediately say no, and to stop it right away with no alternative, it's not going to work. Okay, so always think

00:03:47--> 00:04:35

of some way out some positive thing as an alternative, saying, I'm a Muslim, I wear the hijab, and I'm a student, and I study with the intention of EBITDA, but I also have intentions to be an excellent in my study, so that people can see that Muslims are hijab, are also quality educated people, is this a type of reality? No, this is not real. Because this is a form of Tao, actually. Because you know, if a person is just wanting to be educated, to do a better, something for Allah, to be seen by people, this is what reality is, is from raw. So people are doing forms of EBITDA in order to be seen or worship in order to be seen, by by other individuals. But if the the the

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

intention is, you know, to to bring people toward Islam, or to help them understand more about Islam, then this is actually one of the best forms of dialogue, because to call people to Islam, the best way is not talk. It's not lectures. If you're a good person, people will see that you're a good person, and people need to see without being forced. They need to see you know, what Islam is really about. And, you know, there's this

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

False understanding that when a woman covers her head, she covers her mind. Like the hijab covers her brain up with something like that. Right. But this is a this is a misunderstanding. And I think it is excellent for sisters to make achievements, you know who

00:05:16--> 00:05:33

are modest, and brothers who are modest to make achievements to maintain their Islam, but still they are successful in you know, in the in education, we just need to always protect ourselves, you know, from falling into haram type situations. When we are involved in education,

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

it's said that

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

you said that fear is placed in the heart of my enemies. This is referring to that Hadeeth

00:05:44--> 00:05:55

another heart Deep State states that due to the love of the world, and the hate of death, that Allah would take this fear out of the hearts of the enemies

00:05:56--> 00:06:05

and put one into our hearts. When will this cease to exist? When will the Muslims return to their ancestral Islamic way?

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

This is a very good point, you know, and really, the one Hadith does lead to the other, because the raw that is given to the followers of the prophet SAW Selim is not because they are terrible people with big weapons or anything, it is Allah subhanaw taala, who puts this into the hearts of the people is not us. Okay? And so it's the connection of the Muslim to Allah, not to material things, you see. And so you stand for the creator of the people realize that you really come is to is the creators force coming. So it's the fear of the Creator. But if we now leave the teachings of Islam, then you know, that, that that force around us are with us, that feeling are given to the enemies is

00:06:49--> 00:07:31

taken away from them, okay, then we would become weaklings, and actually be humiliated and degraded. And the great scholar, Ibn khaldoun Rahim, Allah, when he looked at Islamic history, he showed us like a cycle. And Muslims go, sometimes if they are practicing their faith, they're on a high point. But if they leave their faith and become racist, and materialistic, like other people, they will go down, and they will become corrupted like any other nation. The only difference between us and the people of the book, the Christians and the Jews and the other nations, we have our sources, the original sources, so we can return. But that does not make us angels, that doesn't make us

00:07:31--> 00:07:50

successful, we have to be striving for what it is, you know, that that we have been raised up for? The other question is said you mentioned that the jungle and the reverse of fire and water, will we be able to choose the fire. And we'll have faith and taqwa I will decide on this matter.

00:07:51--> 00:08:37

The Hadith is saying that you need to close your eyes and drink from what appears to be the fire. And, you know, the macadam of this, you know, a type of introduction to this is coming to us, we actually had this in Cape Town. And you may have had it yourself, it was at the turn of the millennium. So when the Millennium was coming in, it fell on one of the odd nights in the month of Ramadan. And so either you could be making tahajjud prayer, or you could be waiting for 12 o'clock midnight, for the new year to come in for the millennium. And in Cape Town, they had a big party organized and they had drugs and they had all types of corruptions, and they put out all this

00:08:37--> 00:09:14

advertisement. And so we made an alternative program for that evening, you know, and brought out do this and said, it may seem bitter to you, it may not seem as nice, but if you go out to the rave, or to the party, people are getting drunk there, there is ecstasy, there is crack cocaine, you know, in South Africa, now, one out of every four persons in the country is HIV positive 25% of the population, you know, so there are so many dangerous when you go out there, you know, have a viable halau alternative. And so it seemed better.

00:09:15--> 00:09:53

But when they came to our alternative program, they enjoyed themselves. And they didn't even need to watch the ball in Times Square, whatever it is, and, you know, they didn't even need to go through that. You see. So in a sense when the dugout comes, well, he has to be law. This is sort of a false construct. They're putting up in front of your face, the lights the actions, it seems like paradise, but really it's hellfire. So we need to close our eyes sometimes and not get caught with this. And sometimes to make this a lot too fast and Ramadan. To do these things may seem difficult, but in the end, we are glad because it has benefited our bodies. It has benefited our minds and our lives.

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

There are a number of questions that the sisters have that have come up a number of points, and this seems to be something

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

in the community, and what they are saying it's a little bit off the topic, but what it's so important, I wanted to mention this, and they are saying that many of the brothers in the community are marrying non Muslims, you know, when they could actually be marrying Muslims, and Alhamdulillah

00:10:18--> 00:10:45

Islam is open for everybody and people, we naturally encourage everybody to come near to Islam. But if there is somebody who was practicing Islam already, and who is there, then you know, it is it is better for you, you know, to deal with that person, you know, and then it is even if the other person appears to be physically beautiful, or whatever it is, one of the sisters says on behalf of all my sisters, Muslim sisters in Australia, who are

00:10:46--> 00:11:14

concerned about who they are given in marriage. So there's a lot of young brothers who are having relationships with non believers, and they are saying marriage is too hot, especially when we are getting everything for free from the non believers. Why are the girls so ready to get married, but the brothers want, you know, are stuck on the ground? Right? The brothers are not really pleased, you know, tell these young brothers that needed to get up, you know, and get married.

00:11:15--> 00:11:32

You know, so brothers, you need to get up off your feet, man. You don't stop dragging your feet, you know, and marry these sisters, man. Okay, and don't be dreaming, you know, for, you know, some Tomb Raider and you know, in a job or something, you know, but to get get off off the off your feet.

00:11:35--> 00:11:50

One question comes in and says are We are at the point of time, where unity amongst Muslims is vital. However, we find, however, we find Muslims in Melbourne disputing and discouraging each other and not supporting other groups, they discourage one another.

00:11:52--> 00:12:35

Not to attend lectures and Islamic classes. This is extremely sad, can you please advise us on this point, it is very important now for Muslims to try to come together. And really, when we looked at the differences between you know, the the groups of Alison, Noah, Gemma, we found out that in many cases, it was only an ego problem with the leaders, or it was a minor issue in jurisprudence. And really, it was part of, of the deception of the shaytaan of the evil one, to divide us up, especially in these times. And so we need to now look at another Muslim, you can find a person who has 95% of their Islam is similar to you, and 5% is different. Why do we focus on the 5%, we should

00:12:35--> 00:13:18

focus on the 95%. And if there's a difference in some ways, right, some practices, then we need to give advice to each other and make make to offer that person, pray for that person, try to do things together. And one of the points is that we can try to, you know, do good deeds together, to stand up, you know, in protest, to call to the good to forbid the evil, we can try to do this together and start to appreciate other Muslims, and the way that they practice Islam. Because many times it's only tribalism, nationalism, you know, and these small minded type of cultural practices that hold Muslims are in a different camp, or that makes us divided.

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

One sister is saying that

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

can she become a political activist?

00:13:26--> 00:13:33

We can become it is good for Muslims to be involved in all areas and sisters do have to be involved in the Islamic movement.

00:13:34--> 00:14:18

You know, but but the way terminology is being used when it says a political activists, you know, it doesn't mean like, you know, the Greenpeace movement, or does it mean, you know, whatever, you know, we always have to maintain our Islam. And so we have to maintain our modesty, our HIA, you know, and we have to maintain the limits, you know, our la supernodes Allah, but but, you know, sisters should be involved, you know, in activities, even Dao activities, because the reality is that the majority of people who are accepting Islam, in most of the countries I've been to are women. So if women are want to hear about the message of Islam, then how can the brothers be involved in this, it is better

00:14:18--> 00:14:46

for a sister, or it is it should be a system, you know, who can actually explain Islam, especially in the details to the women, because the brothers, sometimes they their mind goes off into something else. You know, they give Shahada on one hand, and then the calf on the right. So we don't want to deal with this. You're the assistant should be active, and they should be involved, keeping in mind the limits of Islam. It says,

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

I'm engaged to a full practicing Muslim Alhamdulillah. But he was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and he's in prison. And my parents don't want me to have anything to do with him. But we want each other how

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

Is it possible, you know, what can we actually do? Well, you know, people make mistakes. And Allah tells us in the law, yuck for the denuvo gymea, Allah forgives all sins. And so, if the person made a mistake and is sincerely making Toba then really, they should not be necessarily cut off, they should not be cut off. And so you need to call in a counselor, you know, any mom, somebody to come in to talk to your parents, and maybe have somebody to go inside, you know, to the prison itself, talk to the brother and see what his condition is, you know, and if he is making Toba and practicing Islam, that he should be respected, like somebody on the outside, it should not be cut off. And

00:15:40--> 00:15:58

sometimes people are asked to find themselves in the prison for political reasons, or for wrong reasons. And this, this can happen also. So the person should not be cut off, somebody should go inside and see him. And once they see what the he's his condition, they should also give him a chance as Allah gives us a chance.

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

It says I would really like to repent today, before tomorrow on the sins and stop watching TV. Because I really hated watching TV, I asked my mother, you know, to get rid of it, but she doesn't want to get rid of it. Okay. You know,

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

the television itself,

00:16:18--> 00:17:00

in itself as an instrument is not Haram in itself, but it is how it is being used. And there can be some programming done, you know, through the use of cameras, which is beneficial to Muslims. And we have to keep this you know, in our minds. However, what is happening now is that the general programming, you know, is putting us in that matrix, it put us in that web, you know, of wrong thinking that that deception is mainly coming through this tool, racism comes through it, class divisions come through it, advertisement comes through it, sometimes we love the products, not because of how it tastes, or how it feels, but because of the advertisement, because the advertising

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

was so good, because that song was ringing in your ear. Right? Those numbers were coming in. So you need to have that that particular product. Okay, so the more time we spend away from the tube is actually better for us. You may have to go in stages, like a drug addict coming off of drugs. But eventually when you're not involved in it, you'll see that you get so much done. In our house. We had the television for a while. We never used to have it in Medina, Hamza I lived it for many years. We never had it. And then the young children come and they say no, no, we need for school, because there's a homework assignment.

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

Okay, so suddenly it comes back in the house and it grows and it grows and it grows. Okay. And then we say No, only on the weekend, we watch TV, only unsuppressed. But then they sneak in there watching TV anyway. Okay, so then we say we said two years ago, we said we're going to try to live without the television, take it out. When we took it out. Everybody had so much free time, you get so much homework done, you are writing, you're doing assignments, you're having good conversations with each other. Right? Normally, everybody's glued to the television, forget about each other. The father has time for his children, the mother has more wholesome time, you'd be surprised how much

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

time we waste sitting there in front of that thing.

00:18:23--> 00:18:36

And so really, you know, we should make a move, because this whole matrix, this web of thoughts, it is dependent upon the television and the media, without the media, then you know, much of its power is gone.

00:18:38--> 00:18:51

So you need to cut it down as much as possible. If you can get rid of it, then get rid of it. Otherwise, you know, go by stages if you see programs that are wrong, filthy swearing, things, don't sit there and watch it man.

00:18:52--> 00:19:07

Don't sit there and watch it. Right? The brothers you know, get a video they're looking for a halaal video, or 70% halaal video, right and they get a 70% Hello, video 80% Hello video, then they're watching the video. You know, don't sit there and watch it man.

00:19:08--> 00:19:16

Press you know fast forward or something. But first press stop and then fast forward. Okay, but don't sit there and watch it.

00:19:18--> 00:19:28

Okay? Because when you go through that experience, it's a negative experience. You see this rape and this murder that stays inside your subconscious mind.

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

So we need to have real events in our consciousness, right wholesome events inside of our minds. The other question is saying I've been attending the Islamic circles for numerous years, but I honestly cannot feel gross in my email. The scholars tell us that a man rises and falls. And you know this happens to all people. It's not something special to you, but we need to start looking at what we are reading. As a real guidance for our life. We don't just read the Quran just to read

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

Don't just read the Hadith just to read, see how it can apply to your own life. And practice what you know those things that you learn. And the more we do that is, the more our lessons become real. And also the people in the halaqa need to spend time with each other outside of just sitting around, do some things together, call to the path of a lot together, right? Build somebody's house together, do some righteous deeds together, work together, and then you can then your hearts become closer. And sometimes you can learn more through actions than you can to just reading about it. If you want to really know what Taiwan is, write cooperation, then cooperate with somebody, don't just read it,

00:20:42--> 00:21:22

but do it. And then the lesson of Taiwan, and cooperation really comes on. The other question is saying, what answer would you give for those who claim that they have had they have been discriminated against because they are gays and lesbians, when they want to have children? Okay, there is a lot of this deception that is being used, which is coming to us. And we understand now and from going to the Scandinavian countries, we find that, you know, 90% of the new Muslims were actually women. And I was surprised to see this and it's a Why are the women you know, wants to come into Islam, especially when propaganda is against women, it says Muslims are abused the women, okay,

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

but but but the women in Scandinavia, especially in Norway, they come from a country background and Viking country background, and they really appreciate the family. And so when the modernization came in, and they were too busy to sit with their families, the women more than anybody else could see the loss, the loss of their husbands, and the need to reconstruct the family. And so when Muslims were practicing their faith, I'm putting in quotes, when they practice their faith, then they I believe, are the other last hope for the family. And so the women saw this, and they and then you know, they entered into Islam, when people are confused about their sexuality. If men are marrying

00:22:05--> 00:22:42

men and women are marrying women, then we will have zero growth rate. You can't have children? And they'll say, Oh, no, we will put them in a test tube and you know, then we'll grow them in, you know, in a laboratory, who's going to who can afford that anyway, right? And then what are you growing in the laboratory anyway? So I'm really, you know, this is part of the deception, and all the prophets, not just the Prophet Muhammad. So some of you know, the prophets spoke about what happened with como loot the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, this is not something that has just come there, Allah has made male and female to complement each other. Right? There's certain laws in the

00:22:42--> 00:23:26

universe that are set up. If we break these laws, then we will do we are going against the natural order. And there is a natural result. And we see it today happening with these lethal sexual diseases, sexually transmitted diseases that are coming, and abuse and strange beast realities and practices that are happening in the world today. This use of these terminologies, they use these terminologies, you know, and they take these words and put them totally out of context. The next question is saying I am a Muslim, but I don't know how to read the Quran doesn't mean I am not a real Muslim. Does it also mean what I've done in my lifetime? The name of Allah is wrong, shed some

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

light on this. One great scholar said that when you're reading the Quran, you should do

00:23:32--> 00:24:18

tahseen tilaa. What's he? What is he what it's about a woman he three things you beautify the recitation of the Quran, you reflect upon the signs and the verses reflect upon it. And third, you should follow its commands. So there's three levels of it. So many people just read it in order to do the touch read, and to sound, you know, nice or in accordance to the rules of touch weed, but that's not enough. We have to begin to reflect upon the book and to put it into practice, and the fact that this person has not done it does not take them outside of Islam. They are still Muslim, and inshallah Allah subhanaw taala. You can raise you, you know, you made the right intentions, a

00:24:18--> 00:24:20

lot can raise you to a high level of Islam.

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

Another question is it said in one of your talks, you mentioned that we should not be extreme and that the more religious you get, the more balanced you should be? Can you give some examples of this? We need to look more at when we look at the verses to read and tafsir surburban newzoo why would these verses revealed and when you understand the perspective of the Quran, it helps us to understand more also the life of the Prophet peace be upon him, and especially what they call fit, fit cosida understanding the life of the prophets of Salaam it is this is a very important subject for us now and the more you

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

Read about the Messenger of Allah. Then you see how balanced he was? Right? And he told his followers Yes. sudo will add to our see to make things easy, don't make it difficult.

00:25:11--> 00:25:36

Some people so No, I have an opinion, in my opinion must be the only opinion. But there was a case where the prophets Allah Salaam said, anybody when they were struggling against the Yahoo would have been acleda. He said, anybody who believes in Allah in His last prophet, you must make your answer in benaco data. Right? This is a general translation. And so everybody started heading toward benaco data. He said you must make your answer in benco data

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

along the road, some of the Sahaba acid time was going out.

00:25:43--> 00:26:07

So what are you going to do, you're going to make you're also in Bengal coryza, or you make it on the road? Right? The time is going out. Now you can see it starting to get dark. So some of the people said no, Allah said, I should pray. So I'm going to make salaf and they made Salah, some of them said no Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, we should make it in federal court either. So I'm not going to pray until I get there. And the two sides argued with each other.

00:26:08--> 00:26:15

And they brought it to the Messenger of Allah. And then you expect Okay, is one right or the other? Right? What do you think it is?

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

He said, You're both right.

00:26:19--> 00:26:56

Because the intention was right, this person prayed because Allah ordered him to pray at that time. And the other one prayed, because I commanded him to pray. So you're both correct. You see, that's balanced. That's tolerance. And that's what we need, especially when we have differences of opinion. So the more you look at the life of the province of Salaam is the more we can see and and the Sahaba we can get practical examples of this balance. Now in terms of the boycott, it says you spoke of boycotting goods, which provide for Muslim countries, oppressing Muslims, or for countries oppressing Muslims. I know of a few brothers who

00:26:58--> 00:27:33

who find examples in in attaining alternatives, which are Muslim products, in a bid to support Muslims and to reinforce the need to buy halau foods and goods of Muslim origin. They are starting on the grassroots level. Okay, um, this is a very important point. Because one of the ways the alternatives again, if we're not going to do certain things, we we should have alternatives. And so people are caught in mortgages or bond, whatever you call it. They're caught in these interest transactions, so we need to support Islamic credit unions.

00:27:34--> 00:27:48

Also Islamic banking, if people are putting their money together, our jamaats should should have an economic program. We need to be able to employ brothers to employ sisters. Otherwise, we're caught in the economic web.

00:27:49--> 00:28:27

There are even some Muslims who are minting their own coins now. And they use these coins. They trade with these coins, okay, which is the exact amount of gold and Durham's dinars and Durham's, and they are trading with a coin, which is equal to the amount that it says, and not a false promissory note. And they have begun trading in these coins. And so this is an alternative type of economy. And so this is a very important point that everybody in their life and then the jamaats especially should have should support any type of alternatives. If you have to choose between, we have a store called pick and pay, do you have that here?

00:28:28--> 00:28:35

Okay, pick and pay or Woolworths and these stores, which are supporting Zionism, then go to the Muslim Brothers shop.

00:28:36--> 00:28:49

Buy it from a Muslim, but I say clearly to the businessmen and business women, you have a trust to you see, because some brothers, if they know you're coming, they raised the price. Okay, so they should not be raising the prices.

00:28:50--> 00:29:32

Right? And so we need to support ourselves within our own economy. Okay, and this is part of the way of coming out of the whip, you know, not to be caught by these multi national corporations. The other thing is saying what other companies other than Coca Cola, McDonald's, etc, use money to kill Muslims in Palestine, Afghanistan, Kashmir, etc. You know, there's a long list of things, and I will leave on the list that I have here with the leadership, I know that they already I believe, have contact with certain websites that are giving this information, this needs some time for us to be able to determine which ones are actually authentic. Okay, and so I leave this with the leadership

00:29:32--> 00:29:53

here, and I want you to contact the brothers and sisters of Islam, you know, to to get information about, you know, these type of groups, you know, you know, that are doing it so we can start to make this change, because the list is really very long and we don't have the time tonight to really go into the details. We need to make the intentions within ourselves and look at this as a long time process.

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

It says people live longer in the West and mainly in Muslim countries.

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

Is this to do with the health system or is it simply by Allah, nobody dies before their time, and their death is actually written. And if a person lives longer in the dunya, than the other person, it doesn't mean they had a better life.

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

And it doesn't mean that they're more blessed, because they've lived longer, some people are tormented more if they live longer. Okay. And, you know, in terms of this thing, I found, there's a group of Muslims who are living what is called the hunza Valley. This is very high in Pakistan.

00:30:31--> 00:31:03

And the people of the hunza Valley, you know, they are one of the groups where they drink fresh water and they're climbing all the time, up and down the mountains, right, and they're very hardy people and some of them are living to be 125 years old. Okay, so, Muslims have some of the oldest people in the world to in Pedro and the high mountain is also people like this, okay, but we believe in the culture of Allah subhanaw taala and he writes that it is written the time when we will pass away and we will not die any minute sooner or later than what has been prescribed for us in the studio.

00:31:05--> 00:31:15

It says 100 live follow my religion as a Muslim, but I have a desire to marry again a second wife, okay, am I falling in harangue?

00:31:16--> 00:32:03

Am I worthy of this, okay, um, you know, if it is just a desire within you to marry a second wife, then we don't, we should not be following our desires, like Islam is not based upon your desires, really, you know, if a man is to go into you know, multiple marriages, then you need to have other you need to have justice, and you need to be able to provide justice between the women who you have a relationship. And if you can provide that justice, then it is permissible, you know, to, to, to, to do the marriage. But unfortunately, in many cases, brothers are doing this only as a fashion or as competition between each other. Or just following the enough's, you know, like this, and not

00:32:03--> 00:32:45

really for, you know, the proper reasons, it is permissible to do it. But really, from our experience as counselors and I know, you know, with the media, you know, we I've had a lot of experience like this, that, that really, people need to consider what they're doing before they do it, it is permissible, and in some cases, beautiful relationships, multiple marriages, it is possible, but people need to be sober. And they need to deal with the limits of Islam. Right, they need to try to establish justice, the man should establish justice, and they should not be, you know, too quick about to go to rushing into marriage. Now, when I said that, I don't want you to get

00:32:45--> 00:33:09

me wrong about marriage, if the conditions of marriage have been fulfilled, and if the father sees you know that all the while he sees that this young man, for instance, has you know, the right qualities, he shouldn't stop them from getting married. They should not block the marriages. What I mean is that when people meet each other, and five minutes later, it's love at first sight.

00:33:11--> 00:33:18

Okay, this this Cupid this erotica concept, we're Cupid sushi with his arrow. This is shaytaan shoot me with the arrow.

00:33:19--> 00:33:36

Okay, that loving Islam, yes, there is a physical part to it. But the spiritual part is the most important part. And we need to know something about each other. And we need to put the deen as the highest part, and not necessarily a tribe or a race, or the amount of money that we have in the pocket.

00:33:39--> 00:33:59

The other question is a good question. So if somebody loves sports, how can this person be good in his or her religion, you know, there's nothing wrong with playing sports, it is Sunda actually to be able to wrestle and to swim and to ride and shooting all these things or sooner. Your sooner is not just to work out sooner.

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

Okay, and all of the brothers you know, especially should know some form, you know, of self defense, you got to know something, man.

00:34:08--> 00:34:49

Okay, and we even advise that the sisters learn how to protect themselves, even the sister should notice. Okay. And so, and being physically fit, you know, is it you know, part of the Sunnah of the Prophet Salah Salem. And so sports is good. What I'm talking about is when we get drunk with sports, when we are intoxicated with sports, when we love our soccer players so much, or our baseball players so much, we don't care about what's happening in the world. We turn straight to the to the page and see, you know, which team is winning in the World Cup, and people are dying in the Muslim world. And all you care about somebody kicking the ball in the net, okay? And it's not wrong to play

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

soccer. It's It's exciting. I love to see, you know, good soccer and nothing wrong with that. But if it becomes the object of life, and we

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

Forget about you know, our, our compulsory things we forget about a religion that is becoming like an idol.

00:35:08--> 00:35:32

It is becoming something which is taking us off the path, you know, and we need to be again balanced. So this is a time to enjoy yourself. There's a time for recreation. And there's a time to make prayer, right when the time for prayer comes in, stop your sportsmen. Make your salaat Okay, give the HAC to Allah. And then you can give the duck or the rights to your body.

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

The other question is saying how can we get the web from our mind, like I said, in terms of the web and this false construct, you know, the symbols, the signs, think about, you know, what you enjoy in life, what you eat, you know, put yourself to a test and look at your whole life and the things that you do during the day. And then you can see how much you're really caught up inside of this web, right? And then try to slowly make changes, you know, positive changes that will be a benefit to your body and to the community. A question here is say I'm not a Mufti and say, is it haram to wear ties to school? Okay, I'm not a Mufti in this and some people saying the ties mean crosses and

00:36:18--> 00:37:03

everything. I've never really seen that the proper historical documentation behind this. I would say it is, you know, proper for us to try to be as Islamic as we possibly can. The prophet SAW some of them said, mentorship Bobby Coleman, for whom, wherever appears like a people is one of them. So we should try to stay to be as close as we can to our Islamic lifestyle as possible. But I've never heard any documented proof to say that it is haram. Allah knows best. Another question is saying brother about the Coca Cola, we should, we should start to ban it from our homes, and then from the Islamic schools, like some of the Islamic schools did. This is a good way to start.

00:37:04--> 00:37:23

If you have an Islamic school, and we are to give our children drinks, why should we be given them coca cola? The Coca Cola has got all the sugar inside of it. It's got chemicals. Do you know that Coca Cola was originally developed by the slaves, African American slaves, you probably didn't know this Did you?

00:37:24--> 00:37:51

And the coke, it was a drink that they were using in the plantations in order to take the pain of slavery. And so they develop this drink, and they used to put coconut from the cocoa leaves. So we will get you high. And it would to deal with the pain of the slavery. And then it was taken over by the slave masters. And the formula is developed, put in a chemical form. And they substituted the cocaine with caffeine.

00:37:52--> 00:38:29

So the caffeine is put inside of it. And the formula is there. And really, I can remember when I was in high school in America, that they showed us this experiment, they brought the tooth and they put a cup of Coca Cola, they put the tooth inside and they let it stay for a day or two and it was dissolved. It dissolved that disintegrated inside of the coke. So really think about your teeth, your gums, your throat, your stomach. You know when you are putting the chemicals inside of your body. Think about it. It is a harsh thing. I saw some brothers where he had to be loved. They broke their fast with Coke.

00:38:31--> 00:38:53

Okay, he wants coke classic. And he's breaking as fast. You know what that's doing to his body? That's a violent trauma that his throat is going through his teeth and going to the store. But he's cool. He's got his coke. Okay, you see, you see that? deception. He's cool, man. He's drinking Coke. Okay, that's the deception.

00:38:54--> 00:38:56

That's the deception See?

00:38:57--> 00:39:42

So it would be a good thing if we can take it out of our homes and our children's gatherings, our schools, right change our own lifestyle Institute have more wholesome drinks, more fruit drinks, you know, start to get yourself a blender. You go and start blending your own drinks. That's how you should be living man. Go back to the country areas of the places that you lived in and see how people make the fruit drinks man enjoy the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala. Instead of taking in God, this this this, these chemicals that are destroying our bodies. Another question is, why is it that some wealthy Muslim nations are under the control of Western powers? You know, in a very simplistic

00:39:42--> 00:40:00

way. The Muslims for the most part, except for a few areas were under what is called colonialism. And that is where the countries were conquered by foreign powers. And a government was instituted following the rules of the foreign colonial offices. Now when it

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

dependence was given to the countries. They had trained people in western universities who had the same mind as the colonial master. And they put them in power in our countries. They speak the same language, they come from our families, but they are even worse sometimes than the colonial master who left. And so some people call it Neo colonialism, a new form of colonialism. And this is a process that the countries are going through to throw off this rule and turn to the rule of Islam. It says, Brother, you studied the history of Islam and Africa. Can you tell us how early after the digital Islam has reached East Africa or Somalia? And what what advice would you give to the

00:40:43--> 00:41:29

communities from East Africa that are divided up? Also, okay. Now, in terms of Islam, you know, in Africa, it is surprising for us to realize that the prophet SAW Selim actually sent his followers into Habesha into Ethiopia before they even went to Persia, or they went up north, into Syria or into Rome. And that is a very surprising thing, you know, when you really look at what the effect and that is said that the emperor of Ethiopia and the jiashi that he accepted Islam before his death, because the prophet SAW Selim made salado janazah, for Natasha, and salado janazah is only made the funeral prayers only made for those who have accepted Islam. And so when the king accepts

00:41:29--> 00:41:40

Islam, many of us people will also accept Islam. So based upon the trade routes, coming out of Ethiopia at the time, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and then going around the Horn of Africa.

00:41:42--> 00:42:27

Islam from an early stage was there. There's also reports of Sahaba, landing in East Africa and tap in. And there are, there are also reports of mosques masjids being built along the East African coast, right down into the lands of Tanzania, along with all the Swahili lands from the time of the Romanians, bene Romania. So this is only like about 50 or 60 years after the death of the prophet SAW some merchants had reached all the way down into East Africa. So Islam is very old. There, it has been seated very strongly amongst the people. But the danger that is there the danger of tribalism, it is destroying the fabric of the society. And I make a plea to my Somali brothers and

00:42:27--> 00:43:08

sisters. Because you know, I encounter I am part of your family. And I'm making a plea to you that you really need to, you know, consider the danger of tribalism. And if there is another person who's not in your tribe, not in your nation, and they are good Muslim, we need to set some examples. Some of the fathers and mothers need to set an example, you know, with their children and marry somebody outside the clan, who is based upon their faith, even let us as Muslims marry outside of our racial groups, then we're really practicing Islam, because we're not supposed to be nationalists and tribal this, this is not part of Islam. There's nothing wrong with a tribe. You are, but but we we have

00:43:08--> 00:43:32

this identity in order to know one another, but not to hate each other, or to be divided. So I make a plea, especially to the leaders in the community, to set some example and to show how this can really bring the nation together, and inshallah we pray that peace would come to Somalia, you know, and that, you know, this strong Muslim nation would again take its position amongst the leadership of Islam.

00:43:33--> 00:44:14

Another question says, a lot of Muslims are belonging to groups who claim to follow the ways of the Prophet peace upon him. Do you have to become part of a group? And if not, is it possible to be on the right path? The Prophet peace be upon him basically said, I have left you two things, if you follow them, you will never go astray. And that is the book of Allah and his son. Okay, so we look at the people of Alison, Noah, Gemma, as being basically the people who are going in the way of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon within that there are hundreds of different organizations and so many nations and movements, and we need to start to appreciate each other, you know, in London,

00:44:14--> 00:44:40

England, where there are so many groups, people are so tense, and the same brother Abdullah, we need a halifa No brother, we have to study our Kedah know, brother, we got to be spiritual and clean our house. And the other one said, No, we need to be we need education. We needed Islamic State. No brother, we have to do tap, leave and go from Master mosque. Okay, brothers and sisters. We need to study our key to understand where we come from.

00:44:41--> 00:44:59

This proper understanding of our pita should then help us to be practicing our Islam. And we take it to other people in different parts. We need to be this tibia should make our Jamaat strong. And it should help us to stand up and to give Dawa to spread the message.

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

To defend Islam to do jihad, and this struggling and striving while we are doing it, we should be purifying our hearts. And it should lead us toward a Khalifa. So why can't we all come together as one nation omoton wa SATA, and appreciate each other, and what each Jamaat has to offer, because everybody has something to offer. And so come together, you know, it doesn't mean all the time, but let the leaders come together and form a measureless showed up where you have all of the leadership of the community represented. So when issues are done concerning Muslims, you would be one block, and then you get some you wouldn't be respected in this country, instead of looked upon as just, you

00:45:40--> 00:46:06

know, a set of immigrants that are just causing confusion, okay, we need to come together, and then represent ourselves in a dignified way, in a proper way, present Islam in a good way to the society and appreciate each other. This is what we need today. And people will respect us for this man. This division is being caused it's part of the deception, and one of the worst forms of Hurrah of deception that is being put upon us. Alhamdulillah.

00:46:15--> 00:46:24

Okay, um, one question is saying, I know one person became Christian to get residency, then he is saying, I am a Muslim, how do you deal with this person?

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

Really, you know,

00:46:29--> 00:47:09

it's wrong, you know, for us to be making oaths, like this making Olson saying, We're out of our religion, or we're not married. Other things in order to get advantages. The only time we're allowed to do something like this is if you are in a hot war, and your life is on the line, then you are allowed, allowed to deceive people, but we shouldn't be deceiving people like this, in order to get some small material benefits. Because, you know, because we know this could happen, the person could be making this oath. And Allah could will it the person could die at that moment. So so we should never try to put ourselves in, in this light, we should stand up for the proper Islam. So I want to

00:47:10--> 00:47:51

end on this point. And a person said, you know, was my mother happy, and parents happy when I accepted Islam Alhamdulillah when I became Muslim, my mother was happy for me. She was a Christian, but she could see the benefits. And I took time to explain certain aspects of Islam. And I respected her, didn't cut myself off from my family. And she respected me because I you know, I showed what Islam was about. And I showed her the examples of Jesus and Mary, Miriam, may Allah be pleased with them in the Quran itself. Alhamdulillah before she died, she actually took Shahada and that is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. Allah gives it to whom he pleases, but if we show dignity, and

00:47:51--> 00:48:40

we, you know, emphasize the character of the Prophet peace be upon him, who always came back, who always kept his relationship with people, no matter what was happening, he was positive, right, he was always looking at the greater picture. And if we keep this in mind, we believe strongly that one day inshallah we are heading positively, it is a win win situation. Either we went in this life, or we went into hereafter inshallah, it is a win win situation because the prophets of Salaam has told us that one day Islam would enter every home, despite those who might hate this, despite those who might stop this, this is the way of Allah subhanaw taala. And so I pray that Allah would help us to

00:48:40--> 00:49:23

be on this path, and that Allah would protect us from the evil one. And from these plots and plans and these deceptions. May Allah save us from this and protect us from this. Anything that you have heard in the last few sessions. That is a mistake. It is from me and I asked a lot to forgive me. If you have gotten some benefit out of this. It is from Allah subhanaw taala and he only uses us as his humble slaves. So pelicula who would be hum Tikka duchateau en la ilaha illa enter the stock photo Guna tupu Lake Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim while us in London Santa Luffy, who's lilla Dena amanu Amina solly had to also bill Harper to also be Sabah wa salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad, rather,

00:49:33--> 00:49:37

they raised the price, okay, so they should not be raising the prices.

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

And so we need to support ourselves within our own economy. Okay, and this is part of the way of coming out of the web, you know, not to be caught by these multi national corporations. The other thing is saying what other companies other than Coca Cola, McDonald's, etc use money to kill Muslims in Palestine, Afghanistan, Kashmir.

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

etc, you know, there's a long list of things, and I will leave on the list that I have here. With the leadership, I know that they already, I believe, have contact with certain websites that are giving this information, this needs some time for us to be able to determine which ones are actually authentic. Okay, and so I leave this with the leadership here, and I want you to contact the brothers and sisters of Islam, you know, to to get information about, you know, these type of groups, you know, you know, that are doing it. So we can start to make this change, because the list is really very long, and we don't have the time tonight, to really go into the details, we need to

00:50:36--> 00:50:41

make the intentions within ourselves and look at this as a long time process.

00:50:44--> 00:51:01

It says people live longer in the West and mainly in Muslim countries, is this to do with the health system or is it simply by Allah, nobody dies before their time, and their death is actually written. And if a person lives longer in the dunya, than the other person, it doesn't mean they have a better life,

00:51:02--> 00:51:18

it doesn't mean that they're more blessed, because they've lived longer, some people are tormented more if they live longer. Okay. And, you know, in terms of this thing, I found a group of Muslims who are living what is called the hunza Valley, this is very high in Pakistan.

00:51:19--> 00:51:52

And the people of the hunza Valley, you know, they are one of the groups where they drink fresh water, and they're climbing all the time, up and down, out of the mountains, right. And they're very hardy people, and some of them are living to be 125 years old. Okay, so Muslims have some of the oldest people in the world to in Pedro, in the high mountain is also people like this, okay, but we believe in the culture of Allah subhanaw taala. And he writes that it is written the time when we will pass away, and we will not die any minute sooner or later than what has been prescribed for us in the studio.

00:51:53--> 00:52:03

It says, attempt to live follow my religion as a Muslim, but I have a desire to marry again, a second wife, okay, am I falling in haram?

00:52:04--> 00:52:51

Am I worthy of this, okay, um, you know, if it is just a desire within you to marry a second wife, then we don't, we should not be following our desires, like Islam is not based upon your desires, really, you know, if a man is to go into, you know, multiple marriages, then you need to have adult, you need to have justice, and you need to be able to provide justice between the women who have a relationship, and if you can provide that justice, then it is permissible, you know, to, to, to, to do the marriage. But unfortunately, in many cases, brothers are doing this only as a fashion or as competition between each other. Or just following the enough's, you know, like this, and not really

00:52:51--> 00:53:34

for, you know, the proper reasons, it is permissible to do it. But really, from our experience as counselors and I know, you know, with the media, you know, we I've had a lot of experience like this, that, that really, people need to consider what they're doing before they do it, it is permissible, and in some cases, beautiful relationships, multiple marriages, it is possible, but people need to be sober, and they need to deal with the limits of Islam. Right, they need to try to establish justice, the man should establish justice, and they should not be you know, too quick about or go to rushing into marriage. Now, when I said that, I don't want you to get me wrong about

00:53:34--> 00:53:58

marriage, if the conditions of marriage have been fulfilled, and if the father sees you know, that other worldly sees that this young man, for instance, has, you know, the right qualities, he shouldn't stop them from getting married. They should not block the marriages. What I mean is that when people meet each other, and five minutes later, it's love at first sight.

00:53:59--> 00:54:06

Okay, this dis Cupid this erotica concept, where Cupid shoots you with his arrow. This is shaytaan shoot me with the arrow.

00:54:07--> 00:54:25

Okay, that loving Islam, yes, there is a physical part to it. But the spiritual part is the most important part. And we need to know something about each other. And we need to put the deen as the highest path, and not necessarily a tribe or a race or the amount of money that we have in the pocket.

00:54:27--> 00:54:47

The other question is a good question. So if somebody loves sports, how can this person be good in his or her religion? You know, there's nothing wrong with playing sports, it is Sunday. Actually to be able to wrestle and to swim and to ride and to shoot and all these things or sooner heal sooner is not just to workout sooner.

00:54:48--> 00:54:55

Okay, and all the brothers you know, especially should know some form, you know of self defense, you got to know something, man.

00:54:56--> 00:55:00

Okay, and we even advise that the sisters learn how to protect them.

00:55:01--> 00:55:41

Even the sister should notice, okay. And so, and being physically fit, you know, is it you know, part of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And so sports is good. What I'm talking about is when we get drunk with sports, when we are intoxicated with sports, when we love our soccer players so much, or our baseball players so much, we don't care about what's happening in the world. We turn straight to the to the page and see, you know, which team is winning in the World Cup, and people are dying in the Muslim world. And all you care about somebody kicking the ball in the net, okay? And it's not wrong to play soccer. It's exciting. I love to see, you know, good soccer,

00:55:41--> 00:55:42

nothing wrong with that.

00:55:43--> 00:55:55

But if it becomes the object of life, and we forget about, you know, our, our compulsory things, we forget about a religion, then it is becoming like an idle.

00:55:56--> 00:56:20

It is becoming something which is taking us off the path, you know, and we need to be again balanced. So this is a time to enjoy yourself. There's a time for recreation, and there's a time to make prayer. Right when the time for prayer comes in, stop your sportsmen. Make your Sadat Okay, give the HAC to Allah. And then you can give the heart or the rights to your body.

00:56:24--> 00:57:07

The other question is saying how can we get the web from our mind, like I said, in terms of the web and this false construct, you know, the symbols, the signs, think about, you know, what you enjoy in life, what you eat, you know, put yourself to a test, and look at your whole life and the things that you do during the day. And then you can see how much you really caught up inside of this whip, right? And then try to slowly make changes, you know, positive changes that will be a benefit to your body and to the community. A question here is say I'm not a Mufti and say, is it haram to wear ties to school? Okay, I'm not a Mufti in this and some people saying the ties mean crosses and

00:57:07--> 00:57:51

everything. I've never really seen that the proper historical documentation behind this. I would say it is, you know, proper for us to try to be as Islamic as we possibly can. The prophet SAW some of them said, mentorship, Bobby Coleman, for whom a minute, whoever appears like a people is one of them. So we should try to stay to be as close as we can to our Islamic lifestyle as possible. But I've never heard any documented proof to say that it is haram. Allah knows best. Another question is saying brother about the Coca Cola, we should, we should start to ban it from our homes, and then from the Islamic schools, like some of the Islamic schools did, this is a good way to start.

00:57:53--> 00:58:11

If you have an Islamic school, and we are to give our children drinks, why should we be given them coca cola? The Coca Cola has got all this sugar inside of it. It's got chemicals. Do you know that Coca Cola was originally developed by the slaves, African American slaves, you probably didn't know this, that you

00:58:12--> 00:58:39

and the coke, it was a drink that they were using in the plantations in order to take the pain of slavery. And so they develop this drink. And they used to put coconut from the cocoa leaves. So we will get you high. And it would heal to deal with the pain of the slavery. And then it was taken over by the slave masters. And the formula is developed, put in a chemical form. And they substituted the cocaine with caffeine.

00:58:40--> 00:59:17

So the caffeine is put inside of it. And the formula is there. And really, I can remember when I was in high school in America, that they they showed us this experiment, they brought the tooth and they put a cup of Coca Cola, they put the tooth inside and they let it stay for a day or two and it was dissolved. It dissolved that disintegrated inside of the coke. So really think about your teeth, your gums, your throat, your stomach. You know, when you're putting the chemicals inside of your body. Think about it. It is a harsh thing. I saw some brothers were able to build up. They broke their fast with Coke.

00:59:19--> 00:59:41

Okay, he wants coke classic. And he's breaking as fast. You know what that's doing to his body? That's a violent trauma that his throat is going through his teeth and growing through the store. But he's cool. He's got his coke. Okay. You see, you see that? deception. He's cool, man. He's drinking Coke. Okay, that's the deception.

00:59:42--> 00:59:44

That's the deception See?

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

So it would be a good thing if we can take it out of our homes and our children's gatherings. Our schools, right change our own lifestyle Institute have more wholesome drinks, more fruit drinks, you know, start to eat

01:00:00--> 01:00:43

To get yourself a blender, you will start blending your own drinks. That's how you should be living then go back to the country areas of the places that you lived in and see how people make the fruit drinks man enjoy the bounty of Allah subhanaw taala. Instead of taking in God, this, this this, these chemicals that are destroying our bodies. Another question is, why is it that some wealthy Muslim nations are under the control of Western powers? You know, in a very simplistic way, the Muslims, for the most part, except for a few areas were under what is called colonialism. And that is where the countries were conquered by foreign powers. And a government was instituted following

01:00:43--> 01:01:29

the rules of the foreign colonial offices. Now when independence was given to the countries, they had trained people in western universities who had the same mind as the colonial Master, and they put them in power in our countries, they speak the same language, they come from our families, but they are even worse sometimes than the colonial master who left. And so some people call it Neo colonialism, a new form of colonialism. And this is a process that the countries are going through to throw off this rule and turn to the rule of Islam. It says, Brother, you studied the history of Islam and Africa. Can you tell us how early after the digital Islam has reached East Africa or

01:01:29--> 01:02:15

Somalia? And what advice would you give to the communities from East Africa that are divided up? Also, okay. Now, in terms of Islam, you know, in Africa, it is surprising for us to realize that the prophet SAW Selim actually sent his followers into Habesha into Ethiopia before they even went to Persia, or they went up north, into Syria, or into Rome. And that is a very surprising thing. You know, when you really look at what the effect and that is said that the emperor of Ethiopia and the joshy that he accepted Islam before his death, because the prophet SAW Selim made salado janazah for Natasha, and salata. janazah is only made the funeral prayers only made for those who have accepted

01:02:15--> 01:02:28

Islam. And so when the king accepts Islam, many of his people will also accept Islam. So based upon the trade routes, coming out of Ethiopia at the time, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and then going around the Horn of Africa,

01:02:30--> 01:03:15

Islam from an early stage I was there. There's also reports of Sahaba, landing in East Africa and tap in. And there are, there are also reports of mosque masjids being built along the East African coast, right down into the lands of Tanzania, along all the Swahili lands from the time of the Romanian spinner Romania. So this is only like about 50 or 60 years after the death of the prophet SAW solemn merchants had reached all the way down into East Africa. So Islam is very old, there, it has been seated very strongly amongst the people. But the danger that is there the danger of tribalism, it is destroying the fabric of the society. And I make a plea to my Somali brothers and

01:03:15--> 01:03:55

sisters. Because you know, I encounter I, you know, I am part of your family. And I'm making a plea to you that you really need to, you know, consider the danger of tribalism. And if there is another person who's not in your tribe, not in your nation, and they are good Muslim, we need to set some examples. Some of the fathers and mothers need to set an example with their children and marry somebody outside the clan, who is based upon their faith, even let us as Muslims marry outside of our racial groups, then we're really practicing Islam, because we're not supposed to be nationalists and tribal this, this is not part of Islam. There's nothing wrong with the tribe, you are, but but

01:03:55--> 01:04:20

we we have this identity in order to know one another, but not to hate each other, or to be divided. So I make a plea, especially to the leaders in the community, to set some example and to show how this can really bring the nation together, and inshallah we pray that peace would come to Somalia, you know, and that, you know, this strong Muslim nation would again take its position amongst the leadership of Islam.

01:04:22--> 01:04:59

Another question says, a lot of Muslims are belonging to groups who claim to follow the ways of the Prophet peace upon Do you have to become part of a group? And if not, is it possible to be on the right path? The Prophet peace be upon him basically said, I have left you two things, if you follow them, you will never go astray. And that is the book of Allah and His Sunnah. Okay, so we look at the people of Alison, Noah, Gemma, as being basically the people who are going in the way of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon within that there are hundreds of different organizations and so many nations and movements and we need to start to appreciate

01:05:00--> 01:05:28

each other, you know, in London, England, where there are so many groups, people are so tense. And the same brother Abdullah, we need a Khalifa. No brother, we have to study our Kedah know, brother, we got to be spiritual and clean our hearts. And the other one said no, we need to be we need education. We needed Islamic State. No brother, we have to do tap, leave and go from Master mosque. Okay, brothers and sisters, we need to study our kita to understand where we come from

01:05:29--> 01:06:14

this proper understanding of our pita should then help us to be practicing our Islam. And we take it to other people in different parts. We need to be Disturbia should make our Jamaat strong. And it should help us to stand up and to give Dawa to spread the message to to to to to defend Islam to do jihad. And this struggling and striving while we are doing it, we should be purifying our hearts. And it should lead us toward our Khalifa. So why can't we all come together as one nation omoton wasa and appreciate each other, and what each Jamaat has to offer, because everybody has something to offer. And so come together, you know, it doesn't mean all the time, but let the leaders come

01:06:14--> 01:06:51

together and form a measureless showed up where you have all of the leadership of the community represented. So when issues are done concerning Muslims, you would be one block, and then you get some you would be respected in this country, instead of looked upon as just, you know, a set of immigrants that are just causing confusion, okay, we need to come together, and then represent ourselves in a dignified way, in a proper way, present Islam in a good way to the society and appreciate each other. This is what we need today. And people will respect us for this man. This division is being caused it's part of the deception, and one of the worst forms of Hurrah of

01:06:51--> 01:06:55

deception that is being put upon us Alhamdulillah.

01:07:03--> 01:07:13

Okay, one question is saying, I know one person became Christian to get residency, then he is saying, I am a Muslim, how do you deal with this person?

01:07:15--> 01:07:16

Really, you know,

01:07:17--> 01:07:57

it's wrong, you know, for us to be making oaths, like this making Olson saying, We're out of our religion, we're not married. Other things in order to get advantages. The only time we're allowed to do something like this is if you are in a hot war, and your life is on the line, then you are allowed allowed to deceive people, but we shouldn't be deceiving people like this, in order to get some small material benefits. Because, you know, because we know this could happen, the person could be making this oath. And Allah could will it the person could die at that moment. So so we should never try to put ourselves in, in this light, we should stand up for the proper Islam. So I want to

01:07:58--> 01:08:37

end on this point. And a person said, you know, what, my mother happy and parents happy when I accepted Islam. Alhamdulillah when I became Muslim, my mother was happy for me. She was a Christian, but she could see the benefits. And I took time to explain certain aspects of Islam. And I respected her, didn't cut myself off from my family. And she respected me because I you know, I showed what Islam was about. And I showed her the examples of Jesus and Mary, Mary, and may Allah be pleased with them in the Quran itself. And Al Hamdulillah, before she died, she actually took Shahada and that is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. Allah gives it to whom he pleases, but if we show

01:08:37--> 01:09:28

dignity, and we, you know, emphasize the character of the Prophet peace be upon him, who always came back, who always kept his relationship with people, no matter what was happening, he was positive, right he was always looking at the greater picture. And if we keep this in mind, we believe strongly that one day inshallah we are heading positively, it is a win win situation. Either we win in this life, or we win in the hereafter inshallah, it is a win win situation because the prophets are seldom has told us that one day Islam would enter every home, despite those who might hate this, despite those who might stop this, this is the way of Allah subhanaw taala. And so I pray that Allah

01:09:28--> 01:09:59

would help us to be on this path, and that Allah would protect us from the evil one. And from these plots and plans and these deceptions. May Allah save us from this and protect us from this. Anything that you have heard in the last few sessions. That is a mistake. It is from me and I asked a lot to forgive me. If you have gotten some benefit out of this. It is from Allah subhanaw taala and he only uses us as his humble slaves. So pelicula who would be hum Tikka duchateau en la ilaha illa. Enter the stock photo Kula to Boolean
