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

salatu salam,

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

ala nabina, Muhammad

00:00:19--> 00:00:20

Marienbad,

00:00:21--> 00:01:00

I would like to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala, for giving me this opportunity to travel from Sudan, here to India to meet with my brothers in Islam. And this major conference, I would also like to thank the brothers for having personal fun and inviting me. But as they will soon learn, I really don't have that much to offer. But I thank them for inviting me and bringing me all this way. And for me to get the opportunity to meet with a lot of our machines that I have not seen for a long time, and also those who have not met before. And if I knew that we'll be standing on the same stage with the likes of our ships of Javelin and adopted in a jar and Jamal, I probably wouldn't have

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

come, because it's from the teachings of our scholars from the dilemma of Hadith, that they would not even talk in the same city that had a major scholar in it. And here, I'm forced to be on the same stage with a lot of our major scholars. And I thought I was just going to be by myself and do my talks. And I would go and I had no problem with doing that. But I'm actually very embarrassed to be standing in front of my machete today, and talking in front of them, and as colossal mortality, but but I can show what I'm about to say, in this short talk. I've been looking at the title, the peace or Easter solution for mankind. And it's a catchy title that I've been trying to understand.

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

If they mean peace, asylum,

00:01:47--> 00:02:27

I can't understand it properly. He Stevie being the biggest Islamic TV channel, then in a second understand, because the only solution for mankind is Islam. We're not going to beat around the bush and say anything else. The only true solution for all the problems of mankind is Islam. And through Islam, we have the cure for all diseases of mankind, starting with the diseases of the heart. Everybody in the world is searching for happiness, no matter what they do in life, whether they're running behind the dunya trying to gather money, if somebody wants to be in Hollywood or Bollywood is you have here, they want to be an actor, they want to be famous. They want to be this and that.

00:02:28--> 00:02:53

Really what they're searching for is happiness. When somebody from the non Muslims when they go to the, to a club or to a disco, and they're getting drunk. What are they searching for? They're searching for happiness, but do they find it can lead we see they never find it. And we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has showed us the way in the Quran, woman out of them victory Fenella hamartia Tonka, whoever turns away from my remembrance that he will live a miserable life.

00:02:54--> 00:03:25

We see this in the Quran, the only way for true happiness inside and happiness in our hearts, and peace in our hearts and our minds and our souls is through Islam. Allah, Allah hated men, no poo, barely hearts are unsure to the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. There's no other way except for Islam. Also, if you want to look at the problems of mankind today, and how all of humanity, any problem you can think of, well, you can find a solution to Islam. look now at the problems we're facing. With the economy now.

00:03:26--> 00:03:36

The Western economy was built on Riba on interest. And that's why it collapsed. Because it was built on something was something was displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:37--> 00:03:43

They had followed the Islamic system, and that's where a lot of them now they're studying the Islamic banking system, they will not have had this problem

00:03:44--> 00:04:03

of swine flu. Now, look at the swine flu, the problem of the swine flu, and Islam will have that we don't have swine. So in a true Muslim country, we wouldn't have this problem, because it's one of the dirtiest and feel this animal on the face of the earth. And that's why I lost the panel with animated hat on. If you look at the problems that the West face

00:04:04--> 00:04:16

when it comes to, for example, drugs 56% of everybody in jail in America because of a drug charge. And it's now we have the cure. It might seem a little harsh to some people, but we do have the cure.

00:04:17--> 00:05:00

Also, if you look in America, where every two minutes, a woman is raped. Also in Islam, we have the cure for the rapists, that he will be Abra for those who come after him, when he is punished to Islamic law. The non Muslim see these laws are barbaric, but it is as a female pathologists that it is as it gives, it gives life to society. When a person kills another person, his life is taken. And if you have seen this with your own eyes as I have, you will see the beauty of this ayah welcome filters also here. You will see this life and you will know you'll never want to harm another human being once you see the other life being taken in front of you

00:05:01--> 00:05:43

So we see the beauty of Islam, we have the cure for all of the problems of mankind. And the only way that people define the true happiness in life is through practicing Islam. And this brings us to the next point. And that is we as Muslims need to focus on having honor with our Islam and holding firm to Islam, because a lot of our brothers today, they want to offer a watered down version of Islam. They don't want to implement Islam 100% they say this will bring the non Muslims closer to Islam, we can call them to Islam, if we you know, make it closer to them. And so we want to make changes and they want to make these different explanations that we never heard from our scholars before. And

00:05:43--> 00:06:08

they want to do some things that might even be what I'm to call other people to Islam. And we will never be successful as oma if we try to do this. In our lives, we must implement Islam as the Sahaba Roby Allahu anhu boom in Islam. And when those when the Sahaba and those who came after them for the tambourine and those who came after them, when they implement Islam, the proper Islam by following the Quran and Sunnah. Look how Islam spread.

00:06:09--> 00:06:35

And Islam would not have spread if it was the same like we are Islam today. And that's why it's not spreading or very, it's very slowly spreading anyways. But it's not as spreading as it should be because we are not implemented Islam in its proper form. Also, if we want to be successful as an oma and guiding mankind to peace, we must focus on what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam focused on in his tower, as the tower to to eat

00:06:37--> 00:07:18

the Islamic system and model theism. And when I came to Islam, myself, as a former Christian, it wasn't the new sciences even though this is good, and I like to benefit from this Don't get me wrong. But the thing that got me as a Christian was the Islamic belief into heat and Allah subhanaw taala the Muslim belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala This is what affected me. And that's what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam focused on in his dour. Even a salad didn't become part until the 10th year and the other four are later after the hinges on all of this, the province ism was focusing just on to eat and he did not stop la Salatu was Salam when he went to Medina. If you go

00:07:18--> 00:08:03

home tonight, open up the Quran. The second chapter is what sort of Bukhara and look at the first order in the Quran, all of the Quran, the first among the first order that Allah subhana wa tada orders as far as all mankind with you Hannah's for boo boo, boo, boo boo, the first order that he orders us to worship Allah subhana wa tada as one. And then the second The first thing he warns us from the first name, the first after that, for that he didn't want to tell him to not make to Allah subhanaw taala equals while you know, and the total Baccarat is from the soldiers that came down in Medina. So the Tao with the tour he did this you'll find it in the Quran in Mecca, you also find it

00:08:03--> 00:08:16

in the Quran and Medina and also if you look at the story of the death of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he was sinning when he was on his deathbed. He was focusing on two things.

00:08:17--> 00:08:47

He focused on the importance of solid as he would work, pass out, he would wake up and have to do people pray and also be focused on the importance of to heat so we benefit in the Quran, from the mother and sciences and the things we can find this is important in our but we must focus on the most important thing in our power and calling people to peace and happiness.
