smilla rahmanir rahim
al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala rasulillah alameen Nabina Muhammad meanwhile Allah He was a big marine.
And tonight's lecture inshallah entitled, what do you really know about Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
was a suggestion from the brothers to be here in the hall for something for our for our non Muslim brothers and also for our non Muslim friends and colleagues at work.
And this topic, I want to ask at the beginning, just because we're in the hall now, I'm not going to change the way I lecture or teach, I'm gonna ask questions as well. Even though you guys are farther away than the budget, inshallah, I'm still gonna ask questions, because this is how I am how I teach. And at the beginning, I'm gonna apologize to the brothers who are in line with us, because the way the laptop is on the podium, they're actually looking at the bottom of my beard. And because they can't, the camera can't get on. So I apologize to the brothers and sisters who are in line with us, they're not gonna be to see my face, but inshallah they can hear what I'm saying. Now I looked
at it, they're seeing the bottom of my beard only from here on
the topic we have chosen tonight, first of all, how many non Muslims do we have with us today? Is there any I think there's only a few I met before we came in
and you guys wants a raise of hands? Don't be shy, don't be scared. Any non Muslims in the sisters side? One,
So the majority of Muslims even though that was the goal, or the intention was also the non Muslims to benefit from the title nonetheless, inshallah, perhaps more will come later on. And whether Muslim or non Muslim inshallah will benefit from the subject tonight.
The title, what do you really know about Mohammed? May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him? Who can tell me why we chose this title for the for the topic, when they asked, we want something that could be beneficial and good for both Muslims and non Muslims? Why would we choose this topic?
There's hundreds of topics we could have talked about
why this topic in particular, we choose it.
Okay, we came to love Mohammed, this benefits us? What about for the non Muslim? This has benefit him?
Give me and he's a mercy to mankind. So I both have non Muslim and Muslim or both, both of them will benefit from this. What else?
what else? Anything else? What has happened in the media these days with our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem.
What's going on?
He's He's constantly attacked now in Western media in the last few years. So they've given us a bad can or misery. We have misconceptions about our beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam. So in our Muslim, probably only knows what he hears from the media. He never mixes with Muslims or him perhaps he has not read about the Prophet Muhammad says he doesn't know himself. Just like Now a lot of times when you sit with non Muslims, you know, and it happens to me all the time with the way I look, you know, they see me Oh, it's one of them. So the guys they bring on the news. So they see they get scared. But then when they sit down with you, and they see, you know, Muslims, they're normal people,
they're not out to get your blood, you know, hamdulillah you they realize what they mix with the Muslims. So these, these topics are important, because we have these misconceptions about our beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam, so we as Muslims benefit, so we can relay the message to the non Muslims, and also the non Muslims themselves, they can benefit from the topic by hearing the truth itself.
When we talk about the attacks on our beloved Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam Why is there so much focus these days in the media, on our beloved prophet that is to sell them?
Why do they focus on attacking our beloved Prophet sallallahu Sallam Who can tell me
you raise your hand man your cut?
You described the witness you described the message does so now obviously you start there you they tried it any Islam word Islam come from it came from Allah subhanho wa Taala, through Who? Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. So obviously, if you start there, as their brother mentioned, this is the goal obviously of this. And they try to say the freedom of speech and what have you.
And we say it's unfortunate that many people have a lot of misunderstandings about a lot of things in life. And from them, we see that the focus
On the misunderstanding of our beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam, we are talking and I'm gonna give two examples of something else to show and just to put emphasis on how people misunderstand things. We're talking the other day about life in Sudan. Now, when I first graduated from the university, in Saudi Arabia, I had a job offer in Saudi Arabia, a job offer in America, and a job offer in Sudan.
So my father said I would prefer America. But if you don't choose America, then choose Saudi Arabia.
He said that there are allies. And
it's safe there. It's modernized there.
And he said, but Sudan, please don't go to very dangerous places. This is a big long list. Why? Because where's he getting his information?
Fox News, CNN. These are the people that are filling his head with a with a certain thing about Sudanese people, and about Sudan.
I didn't want to disappoint my father. But I found that the best thing for my family myself at that time was for us to go to Sudan. And that's where we ended up going. So when I went recently to Canada, and I met with my father there, the Sudanese people, they threw a big celebration for him. And for my stepmother, so when he went to the masjid to the mosque there, and he said, with the Sudanese people, these are the people who have genocide. Now, they're claiming on the news that 200 it was 200,000 Oh, and then and then a week later, it's 400,000 people have been killed. We know the people who live there. It's all lies, there has been mistakes that have been made in the data for
region. There have been innocent people have been killed. This is true. But the numbers that are given on the news is not even close to the reality. The true numbers are about 10,000. But when they put in the immediate post 400,000, how does it make it look much worse? So my father, I'm sure he's a little nervous, he's going with these people who have just have killed 400,000 people.
And he's now he's gonna go into a mosque, what's a mosque? this mosque? What are we doing this mosque? It's kind of, you know, something, what are they doing there? And what are they worshiping in there. So it's the first time she's going into this mosque with these barbaric people who have killed 40,000 people, now these bloodthirsty Sudanese, and he's going into the, into the mosque with him. So when he sat with him, anybody who knows the Sudanese, they're the most lovely people in the world. Everybody knows this. They're very kind, very innocent people very fun. People love to get along with job with. So he sat down with him. And if it wasn't for my stepmother, she had finished
it on the woman's side, I don't think he would have left because he enjoyed himself there. So that misconception was taken away through what they're mixing
with these people.
I'm gonna give it another example. And I'm going to go out and I'm going to go out on a limb with this is an expression we use. I don't have us in the UK, we use it in America. What does this expression mean when I say go out on a limb.
And some people might not like the example but I'm going to use it. Another place a lot of people have misunderstanding about is where I come from, from America, through the the the politics of our government, we don't agree with it. And it's caused a lot of problems throughout the world. However, inside America, it's a different story.
And how do you still even though, obviously, as Muslims, we have our issues with them, when they spy on us and follow us and what have you. Nonetheless, we still have our freedom, as long as we're not up to anything that they consider to be wrong and hamdulillah we're allowed to practice our religion freely, we're allowed to teach about Islam. We don't have the problems like they have in some European countries now, France or what have you, when it comes to the niqab. And American Hamdulillah, the sisters still wear their face veil without being pressured by anybody, and they still need to see an American you can do what you want. And if you want to wear an ATAR, if she
wants to put a bone in her nose and have a mohawk, whatever she wants to do. So Hamdulillah, we still have the freedom we benefit from this. So now America itself, it's misunderstood. Why, because of the policy of the government, and the politics they have outside of America, people assume that this is the situation inside of America. And it's not the case. So we come back to the topic at hand, which is talking about our beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam, and how people misunderstand him. Why? Because where do they get their information from, from this media? Who uses these attacks, to what give a bad message about our profits at a low value system?
When I was choosing a topic, for my master's thesis, I looked into something that I wanted to benefit me.
And it could have been a lot of things. But one of the few topics or the two topics that I chose from one of them was the problems they face in the West, and the cure from Islam. And we say the cure from Islam. Where does Islam come from this cure where we take the sources are two.
If we're going to find a cure in Islam, we have to find it in one of two sources.
The Quran and Hadith, the state scenes and the actions of our beloved
Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So I started to gather up. So when I go to my supervisor and tell him this is what I'm looking into, I said, I found about 30 different things from the problems they face in society, obviously, not everything, but in the society, that Western society, the problems they face, and we have the cure, and the Quran, and the Sunnah. And in the Hadith are the settings or actions of our profits and a low value system.
From these things, if you look at the family life in the West, how is the family life now in the West? When it comes to respecting one's mother or father in the family ties in general? Is it in a good status in the West?
Yes or no? I see people did to me.
So bad, it's in a bad state leave in Islam. How did you snap look at this? What is the Quran and Sunnah tell us about our parents and how we should treat our parents. Is it does it have a house emphasis is strong in the middle? Very strong. I'll also panel with Alan operand after he mentioned the basis of Islam. What is that? What is this now the core of Islam, which is the issue of Islamic monotheism, worshipping law as one, and that joining any partners with him. He mentioned what being kind to the parents right after this. So it shows us the importance of the parents and the status of the parents in Islam.
Another thing I found was the issue of
the fornication, which happens in the societies now. Now out of 39 39%. In America, I'm talking more about America. Obviously, we're in front of the statistics, even though I did get some from the UK today added on to this
fornication in the West, where now people out of marriage 39% of the of the is just two years ago, I'm assuming it's probably more now 39% of the children born in America were born out of wedlock.
And some people might say this is not a big deal. But obviously to the Americans, it is because the researchers and educators in the West in America, they said that in the 1980s we found that in America, we faced a problem with children being born out of wedlock, and young women giving birth. So we encouraged the girls to use birth control starting from the young age, and the high school. And then later on, it goes down to the middle school where they encourage them to use birth control. But it didn't work.
And they continue to have children out of wedlock. In the 90s, there was a new problem on the rise.
What was the new problem?
The STDs, the sexually transmitted diseases, they start to spread like wildfire. Now, they have to look for a new cure, which is for them to what
for the man now to use a contraceptive
in order not to catch anything.
And then they said now in the 2000s, since they didn't listen to us in the 90s, as well. And the STDs continue to spread that the only cure is for us to go back to Italy and ditch the winter they get married. It's the only cure. So I left when I read the article I said now after all these years of trying to make the that which is haram, which is not permissible in any religion, whether it's Islam or Christianity, or even in Judaism, that now it's not permissible in any religion. And now you're coming back to religion after all these years. So we need this cure, which comes in subtle Islam. And the focus on Islam, when they focus on the sexual relations that are haram there are not
permissible between men and women is the focus on it also, is it something weak or in the middle or something very severe?
Something very severe. It's focused on a big time and the Quran and the Sunnah. And you see now the dangers and it shows the beauty of Islam, when you see how these diseases spread, and the problems that are happening throughout the world. That it's not and you'll see that the cure is now why I focus on it so much. I was sitting in Sudan, we had some students who came from France, I mentioned to maybe one of the lecturers here. So medical students, and they were telling me it's no big deal. All you have to do is be careful and do what you want to do. This is their outlook in life, do what you want. And it's no big deal. Everything's no big deal to them. So when I look now, at the
statistics in America, that one out of four teenage girls in America has it from the age of 14 to 19 has a sexually transmitted disease. One out of four is 25%. One out of four American adults have herpes 45 million.
Small amounts are big amounts.
It looks like a problem to me and they're telling me is not a big deal. Do June for me it looks like a major problem now. So Pinilla we mentioned before 39% of children born out of wedlock. Now research show that these children born out of wedlock, the criminals in the criminal system now in America, the majority of them are from these children because they're not raised properly left to do what they want.
They don't have a mother and father in their life or maybe there's a mother and a father in their life. So this is how they turn out.
Other issues when you look into it in Islam and the cure for Islam, the Quran, the Quran, Islam has for these problems,
the issue of the hijab, that the Muslim woman wears when she covers herself, and people say, This is unfair to her, and the West now that she's ever freedom to uncover. Now, the majority of women, I don't wanna put the women on the spot who are upstairs because I don't want them to look back at them. But if we would ask now, any how many of the women, their husbands forced them to cover their faces? from the window, I'm dead. I think the majority of stairs are covered now. But if I were to ask you find the majority of them, that they chose to do this by themselves. And you'll see the hikma the wisdom behind this, that when a man does not see a woman uncovered, it doesn't affect him,
and drive his sexual desire to fall into that which is displeasing to Allah, and the West now the issue of rape.
And I used to always, when I was debating these these people from France, I was given examples from America and the statistics. They said, Oh, France is better than this. So I don't know I'm gonna research on France and shall not have a see in the future. But today, I brought something from England as well. And it but in America, I want to read the statistics to show you.
And in Islam, when something is made haram and a pure we have it in Islam, it shows us the beauty of our religion. Also, when you look in a Muslim society, and you don't find this filth is also one of things that shows you where does this come from? And why is the rape statistics so high in the West and so low in a Muslim society, it's something to think about in America now. It says here, I'm going to read it what they have written from their websites. Somewhere in America, America is a big place. Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every two minutes.
Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every two minutes.
According to who to this guy I'm standing in front of with a big beard. According to the US Department of Justice, that according to me,
the FBI estimates that only 37% of all rapes are reported to the police. So it could be more.
And the US Justice Department, they say it's even lower, with only 26% of rapes
They say the rapist themselves 37 73% excuse me of rape victims know their assailants. Only 6% of rapists ever spent a day in jail.
Justice inequality, the American way.
The UK now, the United Kingdom, also now we have this note, they're spreading throughout the Islamic world. And they want the Muslims to be like them, and to implement their system on the earth. And they say this is the way to for the person to be free to be like the West, the democratic system. I was actually very shocked because the UK is much smaller than America to see the system because I found today, the ones that have for America, the old I did the research on America. Instead, according to a news report, and beat on BBC presented on the 12th of November 2007. There were 85,000 women raped in the UK and the previous year in 2006.
That equals 230 cases every day in the United Kingdom 230 women raped every day in the United Kingdom.
you see the justice was served to the rapist, obviously, how many of them were caught
out of 85,800 cases resolved. I don't want to go into detail. This is not the topic we have at hand. But I'm pointing out something is that when I did the research about
Islam and the cures, you'll find that the prophet SAW his own blood for mankind, as the brother mentioned that he's a mercy to mankind, you'll see that the penalties in Islam for such an Islamic states is why you do not find these type of crimes. And talking about the democratic way in this day, Jeb. First of all, when it comes to rape, what is the man eventually reached the rate because what he sees when he sees a woman walk around half naked, what does this do to him? How does this any man any normal man, it's gonna affect him in a negative way. And that leads him to fall into this heinous crime. After that, the penalty, it was the penalty in the West, it's not that severe.
So he's willing to take it the penalty in Islam being so severe, you'll see that what Alhamdulillah that God has protected our societies from that will come to the law. I have here other statistics, but I'm not going to read about what happens in the houses with the children being molested in the West. And it's something when I read it well, it made me sick to my stomach. And I don't wish to read it now. But this is just to show you what goes on in these societies, and that they are in need of what the professor said and brought as a mercy to all of mankind.
issues. And I'll mention this last fact before I go on to the next topic. This I found very interesting. I attended a conference about AIDS control and Sudan, some African students, they invited me to come and they wanted me to talk about
AIDS and what have you from Islamic perspective. So one of the things that was said, and the person was talking about though he was specialized, and he was working for the UN, and he had the PowerPoint, he was showing us where AIDS is in Africa. And he showed that the level of AIDS in the non Muslim areas was much higher than in the Muslim areas. And this is very strange. I didn't understand why. And he mentioned that a Sudanese professor and john hopkins university in the US was one of the top universities, especially in the medical field in the in the United States. He was working there, he did a research on this. So he found that one of the reasons and we're talking
about the cure, and this is a research I had before the cure Islam has for these problems that mankind faces. He mentioned that the Muslims even though they might fall into that, which is displeasing to law, and that which is forbidden by fornicating. He said, But how do they find the difference is that the Muslims are circumcised, so Pinilla, he said he found the Muslims are circumcised, so that aids would be less than what the what the non Muslims. He said, also, they found that anyone that asked the Muslims who fornicated most of them, even though they knew that what they did was not permissible, they will make the full whistle after they will go home, they
will be ashamed. And then if they praise, they will also never clean themselves. And they found that none of Muslims didn't care if they clean the area or not. So all of this, they said it affected more in the spread of AIDS. I found this very interesting. And this also shows you the cure Islam has for these problems that are spread throughout the world.
When we look at the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
we say he's one of the most misunderstood men in the world today. But if we look at
even the non Muslims who have studied the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and looked into his car and his biography, look at the conclusions they have come up with. One of the most famous examples is that a Michael Hart when he wants to his famous book about the 100 most influential men and throughout history, and the first one he chose was who
Mohammed Salah Selim, our Prophet Mohammed made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. Why did he say he chose him? Does anybody know? I'm sure you do. It's famous Damon. Why did he choose the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he said, as a Christian, it was difficult for him to choose anybody else. Didn't Jesus Elisa them? Why did he choose the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam?
Because he was the only person throughout history who was successful at every field. And when our brother says in every field, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam with the peace and blessings be upon him, he was not somebody who was just good in what he was not somebody who spoke on the spiritual aspect of life. He was also
the president of the of the Muslim state. He was also the leader of the army. We mentioned this yesterday in yesterday's lecture. He was also what the judge of the courts
when a Muslim man and woman they had a disagreement, what did they come to?
The Prophet Muhammad said, I said he was the one in charge of everything at that time. So all levels of life, all aspects of life, he's the only person history was able to cover all of these aspects, and to what excel in it.
Also, if you look at other people, what they said about him, I have several things here. Because the time I don't want to talk too much, because I will open the floor and tell if anyone has any questions. And I'm gonna give some examples.
I'll mention what Gandhi said.
But I'm only gonna mention the last sentence, and I'm gonna leave the rest for you to go back and find it yourself. Go to internet look and see what Gandhi said about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
I'm gonna read the last two sentences of what he said. He said, when I closed the second volume of the prophets biography, I was sorry, there was no more to be read of his great life. And he mentioned whole bunch of nice things before that. But I want to leave that I want people to go back and to see for themselves. And so many people now I can see her all night, I have a whole list of what people have said about the prophets that I still have of non Muslims who went in read about his biography. And
when the Muslims
the issues that happened in Denmark and what have you, when the non Muslims saw this, this was they were surprised how can somebody any 1400 years ago, and still they still have this love for this men? So Pamela, and I remember now my friend, he told me, I was coming. I was in Heathrow at the time, that the problems happened in Denmark. And he said it came fabulous about the board. So I said I went I made the then and I prayed
He said when I got up, he said, there's a whole crowd of people around me and 10s of maybe up to 100 people around him. They saw he's a Muslim, obviously. So you want to know, where can they read more To find out more about the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him? Because he want to know what what made these Muslims react the way they did? What do you love him so much? So when I looked into his biography, I know we only have a short time, I want to see what are the things that stood out, that will make a Muslim, love him so much, and also a non Muslim, who doesn't know anything about him to gain this level of respect, as we see of all these non Muslims who also have praised our beloved
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, one of the greatest things you'll see in his biography is that of his manners,
sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the Peace and blessings of lobby upon him, and every society, they claim that what the society is built on is good manners.
But the difference is, when you go to the west now, for example, when you go to buy something in the store, do people have good manners or not?
I know about the UK, in America, the American brothers do this today. So I have to keep picking the brothers from the UK.
When you go to buy something in a store now, in the West, in general, people have good manners in the UK, they don't know in America, they do have great manners in the store. Why? It's not because they want to have good manners, or they're in a good mood, it's because the fact that they have to, they'll get fired if they don't, and they have to sell stuff. So you'll find they're very happy when you come in, they're smiling, and this, so the person who goes to this type of society, especially if you have good manners, very nice people. But why because they want to sell something, it's for money. It's not for any another reason, but the prophet SAW him as it came into it. And that one of
the reasons that Allah subhanaw taala sent him to all of mankind was to perfect, what
good manners and that's why I shot his wife will be Aloha, may Allah be pleased with her when she was asked about his manners. She said his manners was what the Quran why the Quran what is in the Quran that makes his mentor so special, what's in upon whatever matters are in the Quran? Whom give you some examples?
You mean, to be kindness is a type of kindness to be kind to be well not to be what really not to be harsh. Excellent. What else? It doesn't have to be talking about him specifically in the Quran in general about the manners that are in the Quran.
Now, there might be somebody who's what
conceited type you know, Jimmy, what else?
Yeah, you're letting me know it's a law work. Oh, no, no.
Oh, you believe you're allowed to be with who?
Allah says in the Quran, oh, you believe it that the law, your law and be with Assad in the truthful. The issue of Sitka being truthful, the issue of adult of being just not having children or having oppression, the list goes on and on and on in the Quran, you'll find the examples of the good mentors in the Quran. So when Ayesha, the wife of the prophet SAW, I said, it was asked how was his manners, she said, his manners was that
of being just being truthful, and not being oppressive, all of this.
So the prophet SAW him in his manners, he was not somebody who just
said it, he was somebody who acted and lived in his life. And at the same time, he called his companions to implement it. And he said, that barely the heaviest thing and the scale of your deeds because everybody's deeds on the Day of Judgment, whether he's a Muslim or non Muslim will put into a scale and will be weighed, to see which one is more is more and to see where he will go inshallah to the Hellfire or to,
to the or to the paradise in general. Tada. So now the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. When
he told his companions, the heaviest thing in the scale was that of good manners. All of this shows us in Islam, how Islam focused on having good manners. And the good manners are a beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam. The second issue is that of his generosity. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam and the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him was somebody who was very generous. And it came in one of the Hadith and in Siracusa to Salaam, that
a Bedouin came to him after he became Muslim. He was a new Muslim. And the Prophet gave him from the sheep as it was described, it was Athena mountain and another mountain.
And something as far as I can see, given all of these sheep, so when he went back to his people, he said, All of you go to Mohammed because he gives a giving of somebody who does not fear being poor. So it was very generous. And he's even said anything he had, if you ask him something, he would have given it to you. And he said to Sam, and that brings us to the next issue. The third point which is his suit,
His route, which is the fact that he didn't, he left the worldly things of this life, he was not somebody who was in to the worldly affairs of this of this life we live in.
And it's even said that when he died, la Santo sallam, he left nothing behind. Only thing left with some of his armor, which he left with a Jewish man, we took, taking a loan from a left that as collateral with him, he left nothing behind, there's nothing in his house.
And we're gonna go back to what we said before, there's somebody who was what the leader of the Muslim state, and the true a lot of them was, at that time were poor, but there was also a lot of rich have companions, and they had money at the Muslim state, especially towards the end. So now they had the ability, he could have been rich if he wanted to, he could have live a luxurious life if he wanted to. But he chose not to.
And that's why his wife is a little dilemma. And she said, may Allah be pleased with her, that it will come a month in two months, and they will go into the third month, and the fire will not be lit in meaning the fire that we will cook on, will not be living in his house, when there is nothing to eat. So her nephew,
old one, it was a bear, he asked her,
how did you survive?
And she said, so then which meant the dates and water, that's all they had to eat, and live off was decent water. So this is a man who was the king of everything at that time, he's in charge of everything. And this is how he lives a very simple life.
At the same time, he was asleep on his car. I don't know it is in English. Do you know what has series
The people have in their countries there? What is the name of an English I don't know, any important English has to do is I'll describe it to you. It looks like almost like bamboo sticks. And it's put tight together. And they use it and still some countries has like walls and barriers, what have you. And at that time they use it sometimes if they didn't have money, they would even sleep on it. So our beloved Prophet, may the peace and blessings of lobby upon him used to sleep on this, and it will leave indents and marks on his body, because it says something comfortable. So when his companion saw this, they wanted to get him a nice bed. How can somebody so beloved to us, and
somebody so important to us, he sleeps and this type of situation. So he told them forget it, because he didn't want to have his heart attached to what, to this world. He was someone who's focusing on the hereafter. He's somebody who had a message, to call all of mankind to and he wasn't concerned about what he had from this worldly life. So when somebody sees this, and look, what are the other kings at the time how they had the gold and the pearls and, and all of this, and look at how our Prophet and he could have had it as well, at least, he chose not to, so he could focus on the hereafter. The fourth point is his humbleness, how humble he was. And you'll see this all
throughout his biography.
In his biography, it said that if anybody would come to him with a problem, whether it be a servant in a house,
a servant in the house, a young boy, a young girl, a woman who had a problem at home, a man who had a problem, he would come to Him, they said, even the young, the young girl sometimes would take his hand, they unswervingly and take him to the side to talk about her problem.
A young boy would come to him talk about his problem. And he would go to the side and he will listen to their problem and tell them what they need to do. So parallel. This is the person who is who is what.
He's the king. He's there. He's the ees. He's the president of the country. He's the head of the courts. He's the General of the Army. Now, if you can't even get near to somebody like that,
and talk about your problems, I have a problem that small problems, it could be something very simple, and he will listen to them. And he would give them his advice that shows you how humble he was with the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
Also, an issue, when he was invited, he will go to any anybody. If somebody invited him over to the house, he would go, and he would, to the invitation he would go to their house, even if it was somebody that we will look at as not being important.
A famous story happened to him, made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him when a Jewish man invited him over.
And I want to look at this, look at the story how this Jewish man disrespected our beloved Prophet, may the patient blessings of Allah be upon him. He invited them over for dinner. And now he's inviting somebody who is he is the head of Medina. And as it Medina starts to spread out during the time, and the Jews during that time they were under his rule.
So this is the president coming over,
even if it's somebody from a different religion now, if any of you now
if you were to now, for example, myself, if somebody tells me that Barack is going to come over dinner tonight.
He's a non Muslim, I'm a Muslim, but the fact that he's the president
of a country. And when it comes over, I'm going to give him something that's suitable for a president.
He's not my belief. He's my guest. I'm going to give him something suitable for him.
When he comes over to this Jewish man, what did he give him?
anybody know the story? dry bread.
old bread that wasn't even knew nothing else was just bread and just gave it to him given his kind of insult. So what did our Prophet do?
He said, You have no respect, slapped him to take him out.
He hamdullah He smiled at me because he realized he's looking this person who he was he was dealing with, he ate it and said nothing to the men at dry bread. And then think the man for inviting him over and he left with Panama. Look how humble somebody is. Now any any somebody if we were to go to someone's house, they don't bring you Mashallah 1012 plates?
Who's this person? How dare them invite me over? And Dominic invites me over now he brings us a handful, just a plate of food. So if this guy, he just just fool, who did you think he is inviting me over like this. Look at our Prophet peace be upon him. So penola he gives him is an insult. And he meant to insult him, didn't say anything. He ate it on top of that. And then he thanked him and left the man's house to Panama.
The fifth point is the fact when you look into his biography that you see, he never sought revenge for himself. Even people who harmed him and harm his companions throughout his life. He never wanted to get revenge for themselves. I think we mentioned some of this yesterday as well. And the lectures, but it's okay to mention it again.
If one of us if somebody were to harm us in any way, and we were able to get revenge,
what would we do?
The majority of us if somebody were to insult you,
and call you names,
killed his some of his companions, tried to kill him, at least not to sell him when he was leaving Mecca.
before he left and he migrated to Medina, why were they waiting in his door? To see him off? Have a nice trip.
Why were they there?
They were there to kill him. And he said to him, they were there too, to kill him.
Even with this when he had the opportunity
to get revenge, what do you do is to sell him
and the war of butter. When 70
of the non Muslims fell into prison to be prisoners of war, the first time that the Muslim and non Muslim armies met in war.
And the Muslims were victorious even though they're outnumbered.
What happens is 70% of the war, what did the Prophet settlers didn't want to do?
What choice did he choose? He went to his companions. And he asked him also they showed you how humble he was. He didn't say it's my way or the highway, I make the rules you follow? He goes to his companions, he goes to his wives and ask them their opinions about things.
So he goes to his companions, and he asked them, What do you think we should do about this? What did any What did the process in which which one did he choose? There's two things, two ideas that were given to him. Which one did he choose?
a ransom obviously not to execute them and for ransom to give them back? Because he said, Now what Why is he here? Why was he sent to mankind as a mercy to mankind? He doesn't want to His goal is not to kill people. He wants now at this time to for them to come to Islam. He's calling into Islam. He sees that what else one has blessed him with with the message of Islam. And that's what he wants for his people. He doesn't want to come and seek revenge. So Padilla even when he went to we mentioned yesterday, the conquering of Mecca when he went and he came into Mecca, and the Muslims then took over Mecca and the eighth year of the hicieron.
How do you come in very humble he mentioned. So for those of you who are with us yesterday, I was his head when he went in his head was down and two older, being humble. Now one of us if you come in Michelle, you get the chance now to take over a place who has been killing the Muslims has been fighting a Muslim several years, your people have been killed your relatives, some of the most beloved people who have been killed. And now you have the chance to get revenge, because he's coming with the army has taken over. He comes in with his head down Elisa to sell him from the water being humble. And he tells them that whoever enters his house and locks is no he's safe. And because
you're not fighting, but whoever enters the mosque in Mecca, realizes that he is what he is safe, whoever enters the house of Abu sufian that he has saved. All of these are examples that shows you that he never sought revenge for himself. And this came in handy through the process that I'm learning let me interrupt him enough. So he got
also we seen another point, that kindness that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had when dealing with people and we mentioned an example last night
about what what happened in the masjid during this time, at least not to slam
the man came
But when he came, and he urinated in the masjid.
We mentioned how the Sahaba wanted to deal with it. And the way the Sahaba wanted to deal with it was then what most people would deal with it. Because the problem is not from the norm. He's more he's greater than that. Is what we're pointing out now. How great his character was any salatu salam, how did he deal with it?
this habit got up and sit in haddenham movie, they went, they went to hit him, they went, they beat him down.
And obviously, any anything now even if someone were to come in here now, in the corner, similar to the side what most people do, all of us, it's an insult to us now sitting here. Whether we're talking about religion, or talking about Jr, the fact that we're in a place, a professional place, and somebody comes to the corner,
it would be an insult to all of us. And you see, most people get up and down, leave him.
And that's why the man at the end when he saw the beautiful character of our beloved prophet may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. He said, Allahumma he has the lowest mortality, what give mercy to him, and to Mohammed and to nobody else. That's what he said.
He said, You should make dua for everybody after that. Also another story, the servant of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who is the famous hobby that was a servant from the age of 10. And it said, Malik rodilla, when he was somebody, when he came to Medina, the Prophet Muhammad made the peace and blessing of lobby upon him.
And his mother brought Ennis to him. He said, This is my, my boy, I want him to be with you as your servants.
So obviously, as a young boy, and he wants to play and have fun, just like everybody else. So he said in a story, that one time the Prophet sent me to do something for him.
And when I came out into the street, he says, oh, the other young boys playing in the street. So I stopped and was watching them.
Now, this could have been something very important he was sent for. But he said, So after I took a long time, he said, I felt somebody putting their hand on behind me. So he said, I looked, and there was the profit, made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
How was the face of the prophets, I send them
like our faces if we were to send one of our sons, or one of our workers, or somebody who was helping us, full of rage and anger, bright red, and then we turn bright red anyways, the Irish people and we get mad. We turn bright red, from the anger. How what was the promises and doing he looked at him?
Anybody know the story?
smiling, smiling at him. And he said, Yeah. Oh, nice. He's named Ennis. And you don't have anybody know the Arabic language. Oh, nice. It's a way of spoiling somebody. He said, Oh, nice. He said, What did I send you for? He said, he sent me for this thing said, then go do it. So panel, look at look at the character of our prophecies. And he's disobeyed him now, not not doing what he's supposed to do. And it could have been something very important also. And it said, he served the prophet may the peace of blessings, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him for 10 years in Medina. He said, I never heard from him.
As it came in the Quran off and off is the smallest amount of disrespect you can stay. And that's why I lost it in the plot. Don't say to your parents off. If your mother says go do this, you don't say? Or they do today.
Just like if
I don't want to do it, he said, and everyone heard from this, and I didn't hear from anything I did. Why did you do it like this, if you've done it like this, it would have been better so so panela, you'll see now the character of our beloved prophet may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
you can mention point seven, which is the fact how forgiving he was. And we mentioned him before and the conquering of Mecca, how he forgave the people, and also the people who wronged him throughout his life.
sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Also, he always used to forgive them for what they will do what they will do, and what they will say to him. Even the hypocrites who we knew were hypocrites. We're not we're not Muslims, and we're causing destruction, or causing problems throughout the Muslim society. When they will come to ask Him for His forgiveness. He would let them go, even though he knew they were hypocrites.
Because he didn't want to cause more problems throughout the Muslim community during that time. So he would let them slide for what they used to do. So it shows you how forgiving he was similar, it was seldom also his patients. And several examples we have mentioned how patient he was in several aspects of his life. He will be patient when he went to buy we mentioned this last night, but I believe the majority the brothers were not there last night for the lecture last night when he went to five, which is to the south of North America who knows geography
where his life
to the South America when he went there to call people five to Islam. Afterwards, people hadn't accepted. What do they do with him? They said marhaba welcome.
What do they say to him?
What did they do to him?
They cursed at him, slandered him and sent their children out and ordered them to throw rocks at him and his law to sue them.
When they threw the rocks, at him, the blood poured down his body sallallahu wasallam, until his sandals, were filled with blood.
At this time,
Allah subhanaw taala because what Thompson was a prophet, not an older person said to him, the angels of the mountains, and just as so many people that people have know that all these people were tortured throughout history, because they disobeyed the prophets. Now the President has the opportunity ability to have these people be punished on the spot and to be tortured, because they disobeyed the Messenger of God. So when he came to them, and said, If you want, we will close the mountains, and we will crush them, between the mountains and five, and all of them will be demolished as a punishment for what they have done to God's prophet.
What did he say? What did he do? What did he choose? And I like I said to the brothers yesterday, what would you have done? What do you have chosen? If you had the opportunity?
Let's be honest, I mean, all of us just to think for a second, ask yourself, honestly.
And the majority of us if not all of us, would have taken the opportunity. Bismillah Don't you think about it, what can Allah do what you gotta do?
But the process and what did he say? He said,
he said, No, this is Ella Ella law, your lobby him maniapoto Lola, you should be here.
He said, perhaps a law will make from them coming from their offspring from their children, somebody who worship a lot. I'm not joining any partners with him.
So if I look at the mercy he has with mankind, so I sent him, look how patient he was.
The ninth point is our beloved prophet as a husband.
When you look into his biography, this is one of the key points that stands out to people how he was as a husband. How was he?
give some examples how it was the husband. This is bad news. If the brothers can't give an example is that means you guys aren't good husbands, man. Careful, um, that a brother he's okay.
And he's in the service of
food. Whatever the services was, he mentioned things in a deed and it can be a good Matteoli. Even they say if his if his shoes. Were some of his clothes were wanting to be what sewn he would sew it by himself.
The men nowadays,
how are they? Are they in the service of their wives?
But the promises as Allah mentioned the Quran, he is the prime example. The poodle Hasina, he is the role model for all Muslims, all mankind to follow. He was in the service of his wife arbit. And they she said, as they said, but if they called the event for salad, it was like he didn't know us, he would be in the server, you'd be helping around the house, were there cleaning or sewing or whatever he had to do alysha to Salem, he'll be helping out his wife's around the house, and showing now the role model how the Muslims how mankind should be when it comes to dealing with their wives.
Other examples when it came to even playing with his wife, SubhanAllah. As I said, we're going to use the race one another, race one another. How many of us have raised our wives now.
As you can see that Roseanne used to play with his wives.
So you'll see that the Roman of when you look into the biography of our Prophet, peace be upon him, and how he was as a role model when it came to dealing with his wives. Also, as you said, he would talk to him a lot at night when he came in. He always what I'd respect the prophets of the lightsabers to get up and pray all night or a good portion of that anyways, sometimes half the night, sometimes more, sometimes less, sometimes a third of the ninth as it came in the hadith of Ayesha Ravello and her that she said he will pray until his feet will become swollen at night. This is voluntary prayer. And that's something that's a must. And she said to him, why do you pray? Why
do you put yourself through so much trouble? And Allah has forgiven all of your past and future sins. He said a fellow called absentia Cora should not be a servant who is thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He gets him praise all this time at night. So you're going to have him pray at night. As soon as they do what after their show.
What's the sooner do after show after show as soon as the sleep after a short prayer is to go to sleep? How is it that you would like to talk to him sometimes it is time. So out of respect for his wife because he knows it's something that women like to they like to talk about a lot. So he will respect you for this. And he will listen to her throughout and he talked to him a little while he was seldom.
The 10th point is the fact that the professor said them was a very brave man.
And all people love people who are brave
look now at the movies were made about certain people throughout history. And why did they choose them because of their bravery. People love them, even if they were not successful in what they tried to do. Oh my god, he was successful, obviously, but he was quite at the end and executed when the people made the movie about him. After the nonnamous has made the movie that the Muslims, the Muslims came and changed around they changed the music and a sheet and what have you. But the people who originally made the movie about Omar matar was not the non Muslims. What what was what was it that stood out, stood out about Omar Matata, that made them want to make a movie about him and
respect him so much.
He was brave, brave men who stood up for what he believed in the prophets of Allah Selim was the example of bravery to all of mankind.
And the story and the heady through the process, and then they heard a big boom outside of Medina.
They didn't know what it was a big boom outside of Medina, it startled everybody. And Maddie for the non Muslims who are here, Medina is obviously the city with the process, Adam was living during that time and where he died, he was buried in the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him. in Medina, you'll see they had this big boom, and the story. So everybody came out startled, not knowing what to do. Okay, the boom came from this direction. What was it now that people were saying, what should we do? Should we go out or not? They're debating what to do. During this time. They see that the prophet may the peace and blessings of lobby upon him is coming back on a horse with no saddle with
his sword on the side. He said, I went to see what it was he said it was nothing. Don't worry about it. You will not be startled after today's panel. Ah, this is the leader of the country who is going out to the to the source of the sound of this big boom. He didn't tell no, get down.
Okay, no, get no get some groups where you go this way, go that way. And then come back and tell me what happened. I'll be down here. He went out he didn't even didn't even think about it. And it's only now because the people as soon as they came out, and then came back, he's coming back. So that means as soon as he heard the boom, he gets on the horse, no saddle, sores on the side only. And if they're coming to Medina, the non Muslims to harm somebody, he's the one they want to harm.
And it's not to sell them. So so finally he goes directly to the to the source of the sound, and finds it was nothing, cousin, don't worry, you will not be startled after today. So
the last point which I will stop at
point number 11. And it goes on and on. But I will open the shell of the floor for any questions that anybody might have, is the fact how he used to strive for justice, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
The famous story during the meccan time, when Abuja Hill, had stolen
camels from another person from other tribe, because the strongest tribe during that time in the Arab peninsula was who push the tribe of the prophets of Islam. So this man came to sell some camels. So I
said, I'll buy the camels from you. And I'll give you the money for them. So he took the camels didn't give the guy the money.
This poor man is looking into his grace. He's the he's the Caesar scheme. Now. He's not somebody who's from the the country. So they come to him. And they go and looking for somebody to help him so they sent him to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and everybody was scared to go to Abuja, because he was somebody important, somebody who had strength during society during that time. So without hesitation, our beloved prophet may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him immediately to Abuja,
and ultimately blessed him with what scared Abuja hell into giving this man back his camels, also in the Islamic State was established.
When the woman from them of zoomy tribe was caught stealing, and she was supposed to be punished. And she is from the people's one of the best tribes in that time. Her tribesmen didn't want her to be punished. So they sent one of the companions to the Prophet, peace be upon him. And as that he will let her slide for this. What is the prophecy Selim do?
As we'll talk about justice, we have we have a law, anybody who gets caught stealing this, anybody who does this, this is the law. Now the Islamic State has been established, and we have laws for everything. Now. What did he say?
No, he wouldn't let this is a ruling. He said you coming to give it to overturn something that has been ruled by a loss upon they became angry. And then he gave an example, to show how severe it was, and to be just on everybody every time. He said, even if the daughter of Mohammed, Fatima, who is the best one of the best of all of the women in history of Islam, she would never steal. But he's been an example to show you how justice would be served anybody. He said, even if she would have been stolen, then she would have been punished in the same way. So panela
in the same way, she would have been punished. So even say the most beloved person to him from the way it was and if it's not her fault,
See See that the gender of the lohana.
So now you'll see that he strove Alisha to slam to implement just justice in his life in on the earth. And these are 11 examples from his biography and the list goes on and on. And I call everybody here, Muslim or non Muslim, to read the biography of our beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam, and you'll see your benefit time and time again, no matter how many times you read it, you'll find new things of benefit and hamdulillah. Now, the biography has been written in all languages, I believe you'll find any good books in Britain, I would recommend an English language. The Book of Dr. Salah Celebi, it's in three volumes and been translated. I recommend that there's
also other good books, that's probably one of the best books perhaps I don't know about for animals and maybe a smaller version obviously. They could get inshallah from another book and benefit inshallah. Now we'll open the floor inshallah for questions. Anybody hasn't thought Oh Allah masala cinema Baraka anabaena. Mohammed. English is not coming to me, which is three volume book if you go on Delta salams website, and you can hit you see the zero books. It's a three Volume One and his last name. The author's last name is Celebi is a Libyan scholar he studied and the same college I studied in Medina, I think he's here in Qatar, by the way.
I think he lives in Qatar, he got a lot of book good books in Arabic. And now they're starting to get translated to the English language.
The button in front has a question.
Also, then at the National Center, here, they have any questions, whether it's about our beloved prophet system or anything else, they will know about Islam. We'll give them a floor first, inshallah.
We'll be talking about the,
know, this perfect, so some
I don't think it has to do anything with him thinking is a real prophet or not, obviously, inshallah they do. But it's the goes, goes back to having their mind being weak. Their faith is weak and not strong. So she upon overcomes them. And they tend to followship on more than their beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the people who claim that they love the prophet and don't follow him and his actions. Obviously, this is love. There's not, not real love. Because if you really were to love the process, and you will follow him in his sin, and aspects of his life. So it's not that the fact that they don't think he's a real Prophet, obviously, anybody who says they know they testify that
there's no deity worship except for Allah, and that he is the Messenger of Allah, obviously, they believe in him, but due to weakness in their faith and remand, this is probably one of the following everything and unfortunately, this is why now also, and Islam does not spread as fast as they should, because the people do not implement this in the way of the promises in their lives. If they were to do that inshallah would not face the same problems we face today as Muslims will Lumsden.
Make it make it short, because a lot of time a lot of brothers made I can tell story when asked the question, it takes a long time, so make it short, please good and good points.
So I just want to know as the state you're in the course of
go back to the beginning. What do you see happen last year, I didn't I didn't catch the beginning.
mistake, it was a sort of what
wanted to be paid to I want to have what's the starting point of view in this
six to five.
In Islam, the ends does not justify the means maybe the non Muslims they see this but Islam or Muslims, we do not see this. So now, the
prophesy set up did not seek revenge for himself. And if we want to be true Muslims, this is the example we have to follow. There's the first thing, the issue you mentioned. And obviously now, if that person were to have been successful, and he tried to do who the people would have he would have killed
were the people who are killing the Muslims.
Find the Muslims are the innocent people. Obviously, they're innocent people, even on the same plane with him were Muslims. So if he would have been
as the immune system as well, he would have fallen onto the streets of Detroit and will kill innocent people as well.
So if you always have to know that the end does not justify the means, just because somebody has done something wrong, and we have an
English, two wrongs don't make a right, just because somebody has done wrong to us. We will return it in the same way.
You said that?
housework and kitchen.
Nowadays in the modern world, we have our guest cooker, and all sorts of modern airplanes. And at the same time, husbands and all are very busy and very tired. So nowadays,
you see you didn't follow?
The husbands are very tired.
Are you tired?
You true dinnertime they come aboard. That's why they expect the woman to do everything. But I want to show you something women. How many jobs do they have full time jobs. First of all the children
full time job.
full time job.
The cleaning around the house full time job
cooking full time, full time premium
services three full time jobs. And then she has to take care of you because you're lazy for both jobs. And the only full time job you have is one.
And then you want to complain
so that you see you in more detail. As soon as the proper size and helping the kids themselves
is not easy. Now when the kid wakes up and it has a fever teething is a baby who gets up, you get up and put it back to sleep. She is the mother.
So now we have to realize this always we don't forget she has four full time jobs. So let's make it three. How about a little bit? We have our own process and this is a misunderstanding a lot of brothers have is that they think I'm saying that I'm not good.
but the process is always
when she's busy, more busy than you will lie more busy than your full time job. She has no free time in her life. And to me her kids become older and they get married and then she might have maybe and she has kids even then she's worried about the kids all the time. So you find a woman she's more busy than the man and she's more tired than the man. So that's what we need to focus on implementing the Sunnah of our beloved prophet may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
Tell us more about
perfect marriage situation.
I was very young,
seven years old.
about the process and this is a topic that always comes up. But I want to ask you a question.
No, I'm not gonna lie and say she wasn't young. She was young when they got when she got in the process and married her.
Why is it something that's come up nowadays? Why didn't it come up? A long time ago? There's a question I want to I want I want to answer it first. Why the people who want to kill him? The people who used to call him before Islam they called him What? What do they call before Islam?
So tell me the truth for the trustworthy these people when they when they after he became after he and Islam came to him. And he started to spread the message of Islam they changed you start to call him What? a liar, a sorcerer. What else crazy.
And then these people who are saying all these things, do people want to kill him? Tried time and time again to kill him? What did they say anything about his marriage to Asia?
If it's something that can weaken his status in front of the people and make him look bad, what an easy
answer wasn't a bunch of dead faces. I think it's better we go back to the masjid. You guys in the Muslim Michelle are pumped up here. I don't know what's wrong. In the chairs. Michelle, everybody's laid back. Or maybe I'm boring tonight. I don't know.
Why did they use this as evidence for them?
Because it was something that was normal at that time, even if you look in the West until recently start to change the 18 thing. And this, even in the rules in the western laws in the West, that even to the age of 12, they were allowed to get married in most western countries.
So it was something that was normal during that time. That's why nobody looked at it as being something as they say, Now, he's an older man with a younger woman having all this nonsense that we hear today. So it was something that was normal. That's the first thing.
Also, it was the wisdom. Why did Lawson matana choose this woman to be his wife.
And he was not with her. They were married, she was married, and he slept with her until she became a woman. When now when she would became a woman. And also so you know, I'm gonna point out something that women today they are different from the women back then because the women back then they became women at a very young age. And that's why mama chef, he even mentioned one of the one of the weird things he found, or the strange things he found in Medina, was a woman who was a 21 year old grandmother.
Pay attention, a 21 year old grandmother. So that was very probably a variant because I mean, she was married her daughters were also at a very young age. So there's he was surprised by that. But anyways, at that time, they were married very young. That means they became obviously she conceived a child at that young age means they have to, but there were women at that young age.
So, this is the main the key point, it was not something at that time, that was considered to be abnormal or something that was looked down upon. Also look at the Hickman, the wisdom behind the marriage, the eyeshadow, the lohana. Who is she to the Muslims? What is their status in Islam? What is it important is Islam, the religion that you know, today? Maybe a good, how much of it is from a shadow delana
how the province alyssum acted in his house, who are the ones that narrated most of his Howdy, Ayesha know, the lohana. Now they come down to you know, the scholars of Islam, scholars of the world and women and women's rights and what have you. We had a scholar, a major scholar, 14 years ago, people used to come to after the death of the province a sentiment would ask her about questions, and Islamic law, they were asked her about this, this this thing, the sayings and actions of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim. So also from that she was at a young age, she was able to memorize this and then relay It was also from the wisdoms. There's many things about inshallah I'm writing
now, in my thesis in the master's degree, about this inshallah. So in the future, we can go into more detail, but this is the main thing is that you cannot look down upon something from another society. And now, people, and this is the problem with understanding Islam, you will understand Islam, you will understand the customs and society. And that's why you see the process I still am, how wise he was, when he sent me to Yemen, what did he tell him about the view of Yemen,
you're going to come to me or the people, people of the book. So he's getting him ready to know the type of people he's dealing with. So he talked about another society.
When talking about other society, you have to see that things are normal and abnormal there. So now when people get upset, they attack us today as Muslims, they see this and this about the Muslims in their societies. This stuff is normal to us, and it's not normal to them. This is one of the big reasons about misconceptions about Islam is that the Westerners want us and what our society they want to pass rulings on the Muslims based on what they believe in, in their societies.
They have to pay attention to this. So this is the key and refuting this misconception is that it was not something that was looked down upon during this time it was that people were attacking him and trying to kill him Alessandra Sonam they will use this for an evidence
you're scared tonight I think barbers are scared.
child out of the cities
to work for two years, three years.
What do you suggest?
in Islamic law, it's haram for the husband to be away from his wife for more than six months.
And that's why we say hello. And even now, when the the halifa he asked me how long can the Muslim woman be any any indirect is asking be without her husband. Because just as a man can have fitna and fall into fitness. Also a woman can fall into fitna. So he said she said she can be patient and far away from her husband for four months.
And then, you know, so he added on two months for what the traveling during that time obviously took some time to get there. So is they this way, they made an Islamic law, that the limit for the husband to be far away from his wife is no more than six months. And now unfortunately the world we live in you have some of the people who have companies here, they only give their brothers tickets every two years. So this is how long for them. And this is so now the brothers should always focus on
Making sure even if it's just a week vacation, where the brothers can go back for one week or two weeks to be with their family, this is what is what is supposed to mean. So he's no, you can't say because of this because of that. It's Haram.
We have five minutes left.
You have to get permission from the
if there's anybody else the brother.
Yeah, let them ask questions, you guys, you guys are to me.
social networking sites,
the anti anti
anti Islam anti
Facebook, for example, you can complain to them, and ask them to close it. So you can do what you can do, you can open up another page to protest against it. All. That's good in general. And it's important and it but sometimes
you have to bet it depends on the site is the site itself, something that a lot of people are going to, there's some sites, and this is important, very important, because there's some sites that are not, nobody looks at it. And I don't want to say the name of somebody, something was sent to me the other day,
a very grotesque title was sent to me about a lot about the promises in them. And I looked at the members of it, there's only six members. So for now, for us to review this and send it out to all of the friends we have beware of this site, you're actually propagating for this site. So if the site that's not an AP, we're not really looking at Don't, don't pick it up and give it
something it doesn't deserve. But if it is something that's there, you can complain to the people you can protest, make another page against and protest and shut down.
Don't be shy, if you have a question, ask a question. Okay.
What is the hokum regarding drinking? Is it permissible to stand was drinking.
As soon as
I mentioned that it's from the center.
But it's from the suit, obviously, to sit down with me. I mean,
shows you that
because it's been confirmed that the president he drank when you're standing. So
you take all of that, so you don't have
to drink while standing. But he proved that he didn't
sit down also he stood up, so it's more crucial
to stand up. And unfortunately, for now has put me in a position where I have a choice.
So last question from my way.
Sit down and drink during
the next year.
Again, I can't I can't do
it again into decoding and since we find some most
people have achieved in terms of law in
English, Oxfam, his marriage, and then when you come to UK,
Muslim or Islamic?
they are no.
understand exactly what the question is. Did you just summarize your data in two sentences?
Exactly. Yes. Could you give
an example and then the question is
because it's against the law in the west to have more than one life
I mean, I don't know about the UK I can talk about America because I know the laws in America and America,
polygamy, it comes right after treason II. And then it comes to the danger of the law. So it's just if you were to have treason against your country, and then to have a second wave is almost the same thing in America American law. However, what we do in America is
you don't officially have an official contract from the courts. If you don't have an official contract from the courts. It's not a problem. They don't ask you because you can in America, you can have a wife and have six girlfriends, it's not a problem. So as long as it's not done in the courts, they don't ask us how many Muslim brothers and I think the majority, especially the ones who are reversed the born Muslims, they seem to be a little scared. You know, I don't know why. But the lovers who have come to Islam, Mashallah, they have a lot of waves in the West. And nobody really has had any problems with that. But like I said, it can't be done to me, obviously, I don't use it
to respect their laws. We don't respect the laws because it goes in this situation because it goes against Islam. However, you don't want to be stupid, and go to jail either. So now and then be with no wife, he had three zero days in jail. So it what's important is that you have to be smart when you're living in a non Muslim society. You don't want to cause trouble to yourselves, or to any of your family members and the bosses on this side of your seat. So that's it.
