hamdulillah alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah
salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
You guys remember me right?
I was up here about three days ago. I mean, a few hours ago.
Mashallah, this is my actual talk. And it's probably gonna be the last one of the night.
How many people would you say I hear about 1100? is are
you guessing right? Now you guys look the same to me is I can't really count.
But I have one other person
that is listening to this as well.
And I think I told some of you about this already. But she's all the way from Kenya.
And this is my wife smear, smear sannomiya dah, dah, dah.
I don't know what you just said. But.
So that is Samir. Now everyone has heard to me his voice. And that is my engine.
Engine. And I don't mean engine like in the front of a car.
Oh, my God.
This system was let me put you on Bluetooth somewhere so
The system we had mentioned to Sunita had mentioned that a sister had taken my Shahada, and that was back in 1996.
Way back in the day,
it's very interesting, because I'm not going to tell my story you got many of you have already heard that, it would take me much longer than a half an hour to do it. So it's usually an hour and a half talk. But Malcolm, Allah had used Malcolm X around 1992, to plant this seed of change in my head,
the seed of change this idea that God is not three,
that God is not
white or black or otherwise, that God is not found in a statue, that God is the Creator, and Sustainer of all creation.
That was the seed of change that was planted in my head back in 1992.
And it took me four years to actually have that seed harvested.
And that was harvested by one of you impact players.
I'm very serious about that.
I don't remember seeing it initially.
But I must have said it because it sounds like something that I would say.
A sister took my Shahada. And now what's interesting about that, is that in 2007,
I was in a country called Kenya
long way from here.
And I planted a seed of change in someone else's head. And you just gave salam to that person right now.
So I got to repay that debt to a certain degree. When I gave my Samir Shahada, Allah, Allah allowed that to me, and it was something that I'll never forget. as well. Of course, many of you have met them. My two bodyguards have said nusseibeh my daughter's right
hafsa who is miskeen and very quiet. She's one of the seeds of change that I have, and to say about who is the opposite of that.
She wants my wrestling boots when she gets bigger.
Even she asked me She says, Daddy, when you do the conference in front of all the sisters, are you going to wear your wrestling boots.
that's exactly what I did I, I told her I would and that's what I did.
So there's all kinds of engines.
But sisters, you know, sometimes it's not really easy is it?
So I wanted to kind of share with you in the short, short short time that I have
about another amazing engine. And this is
from our keytab from the literal speech of Allah subhana wa tada about a woman named Maria.
There may be some people in here named Maria
when that peak Wow, Mashallah. That would have been so bad if no one answered.
I didn't plan it by the way.
But this woman is mentioned by
the Christians I knew about her before I was Muslim. I didn't quite know a lot about her struggle, though. When Allah has said to us, while the chlorophyll kitabi Maria may remember to mention Miriam in the Scripture, even Tibetan Arya mccannon shall appear when she went to a place What's with the echo? Can we do something about that?
That's like, going right through my head.
Anyway, so my family has alayhis salam went to a place away from her people. She retreated from them, you know, she was always righteous. It was a righteous person.
As a you young age, and a last cent, Gibraltar you guys know about that? Right?
You know, what's interesting about Miriam
she didn't go you know, when jabril came in to where she was, she didn't go I slowly come
Mashallah, your beard is very nice. Mashallah. You know, she said, in the Romani minca, straight away. I seek refuge from the Most Merciful One away from you.
is a strange man. She doesn't know that. He's the Messenger of Allah. That's the first man You mean keep in contact akia if you are God fearing she didn't like lol, you know? start laughing Got him. OMG gibreel
kafer Hi, Luca.
She didn't want him around.
And he had to explain to her who he was Allah in honor of soon Robin Robin gulaman zakia I'm a messenger from your Lord to tell you about a righteous boy.
A pure boy
and Maryam Allah. Anya, how is it that I can have a kid? How is that possible when she was pure?
She wasn't out there, you know, clubbing and hanging out doing her thing. She was pure. How can I possibly have a boy when no man ever touched me and I was never unchaste I was never like, involved in any, you know, boyfriends and all this stuff. I mean, it's not there. But you know what I mean? I'm trying to make it in a language that us can understand a little bit.
She said there are like a Vatican parlor, Abu Ali hyena Medina, who I attended NASA, Mata Mina, meaning, like, it's going to be that way a lot can make it that way. is going to make you assigned for the people. While I'm at a minute and a mercy from him more can ambala makabe this is something that's ordained it's going to happen.
Time goes by and of course Madame she goes to a place she conceives a Saudi Salam Jesus, right.
And it's an interesting thing that she says during the labor she says Jani Tani mid to Kabbalah has come to see me.
I wish I was dead.
Yeah, a tiny world to me. I wish I was dead. And I know this word nestea Nancy means like, completely forgotten about erased like no one even knows about me.
Sisters, you know, sometimes it's not easy as All right.
You got to go out in amongst these people.
They tell you to go back to your country even though you're born here. Right?
Even though some of you are like, Anglo Saxons, right?
I'm Celtic. So I'm Irish. They always tell me to go back where I came from.
A Muslim and I'm Irish. everywhere I go. Someone doesn't like me.
I'm like Bono, Mohammed, right?
So see over here on shala
I didn't tell them I was Irish in the airport that led me through nicely.
But it can be difficult sometimes, right?
If you think about her struggle,
giving birth to this amazing man, this amazing Prophet, this amazing messenger.
I didn't know a whole lot about religion. I was a wrestler and an athlete and a crazy person.
I don't wrestle anymore. crazies still kind of air a little bit. Right? But I knew that I liked Jesus never worshipped him. I never did that. I never ever bow to a man ever. That's something I refuse to do. I don't care if he looks like me.
I didn't see him. They just told me look like me.
They wouldn't let me in nation. I don't know why.
Maybe it's I didn't I hadn't. I didn't have a good enough suntan or something. But anyway, I never bowed to a man.
But have you ever wished you were dead like Miriam.
Even though your struggle is difficult, it is i know that i the sisters are probably the people that I like to interact with the most. Because
they know what it's like to be different. And so to why
when you're born the way I was, you know what it's like to be different. You know what it's like to not be included, sometimes. You know what it's like to be left out.
So I think that's why we connect. I think that's probably why a lot of knows best but I think that's probably why that's the case. But what happened to Miriam Miriam had her baby trying to make it short because the time is almost up.
Really? rush I'll give you genetic for those of you that
don't know that when it comes to testing my shoulder.
But a lot of put a stream beneath her. She said he said to her Coolio sharabi Arena, eat and drink and dry your eyes.
System sisters, whatever difficulty it is. Whether it's a weakness in the man, or whether it's family, whether it's friends, whether it's whatever it is, just like medium struggle, it's going to be over.
And maybe in the agenda Allah will tell you clean wasabi will Karina
eat and drink and dry eyes.
Because Contrary to popular belief,
Jenna is also for the women too.
Jenna is also for women as well.
You know the brothers and I always tell this story. Some of you probably heard it before, but the brothers will always talk to you about what our aim is are
all the time. Even the married sisters, if you don't do this in my home, I am going to be upset with you.
know of a woman
that is more beautiful than that.
I know of at least 1200 women who have the opportunity to be more beautiful than the
Are you serious about hafsa and
some of you want
shoes I'm more beautiful than them now.
I'm flies July are more beautiful than them right now. Maybe that's the case. But I'm gonna tell you about them too. And then I'm gonna continue on with the story of
the hair from our head. One hair, one lock of her hair and his real hair by the way, it's not extensions. And
it's not no plastic hair from Taiwan, right? It's real hair
can light the heavens and the earth, the distance between the heavens and earth
and the femur is better than the dunya and whatever is in it. Wow.
But the woman who obeys a lion is messenger salatu salam has the opportunity to be more beautiful than nine
Can you hear me?
Oh? She said yes, yes, twice.
So, this is the issue of the hora. And so Miriam, she takes her baby.
And she goes back to her people.
Can you imagine sisters?
you disappear for a little while and you don't bring back a postcard?
You don't bring back an iPad, you bring back a kid.
Can you imagine? What would Abu john say? Right?
banty What have you done?
Right. What have you done?
That's Swahili, by the way. I'm like bilingual and trilingual. So what have you done? She has a kid. Can you imagine sister what would you say? If your sister came back with a kid?
You don't know nothing about No. You know? Pure matrimony, calm kind of deal. You don't know about that? She didn't get married. You don't think? Unless she did it. Like on a deal.
So Miriam comes to her people with a kid she's carrying a BA a little baby. And they said, What have you done? What you've done is
amazing. It's interesting. It's very, very, like, fairy I don't even know how to translate that word. It's like strange, odd.
And your mother was was good. And your father was good. And you know you're on any color medium anymore. You lose your name when you do something wrong with them people, right? Yeah. No sister of Aaron, right? Your mother Your father was a good man and your mother wasn't like, you know, bad. For lack of a worse word.
What does she do?
Well, she articulate she just looks at him, looks at a site and said I'm in the cradle.
Now they start to even talk about her Moyes. How do you expect us to speak to someone in the grave? How's that? How does that work?
When you depend on Allah,
do things for you. That will shake the world.
shake the world because all of a sudden, what does Jesus say?
tanning tea to
Johnny mobile I can
too. I was on his slot. It was
my Doom to hide.
while battling bhiwani that to me I didn't need to jump back. Sharpie
this little baby comes out with that.
Verily, without doubt,
I am the servant of Allah.
Tawny kitaen or john Nina BIA.
He gave me the book and he made me a prophet. Well, Johnny mobarak and a&m I couldn't. And I'm and wherever I go, there will be blessing. I will say my name is sada. And he enjoined on me prayer was that cat, madam to higher as long as I'm alive and also charity, as long as I'm alive, well buttered on BYD that he and he made me kind to my mother,
after his duty to Allah, he said, What better than the worry that he
and he made me kind to my mother. He was muddy and was the ultimate single mom, right?
I'm serious. She was the ultimate single mom.
And her son was one of the best men that the sun ever shined upon. Well, better than be worried that he was me Johnny Jabbar on Shakira. He didn't make me transgressing or, like jabatan, like, compelling or oppressive. Do you want to say was salam, O Allah, yo mama to peace be upon me the day that I was born, when I moved to in the day that I will die while you're here, and the day that I'll be raised alive again. Now
I'm telling you the story of a PSA and many people call it the story of a PSA and it is,
but there was an engine
Just like you talked to my engine,
who encourages me daily, weekly, monthly and yearly and if she could hourly, to do what I do, he says engine that was chosen by Allah for him was Miriam.
The ultimate mom, Miriam wasn't a PhD. She was some historians say she was in our teens. 1415 years old. Some historians say that Allah knows best how old she was, and it's irrelevant. But that's what they say that she was very young.
She wasn't a PhD and I'm not saying to be a PhD is bad.
You know, we're very polarized if I say that all of a sudden I'm against education. I'm not I'm not against that at all. But I'm saying that your duty to allies priority get your education make a billion dollars for all I care and then you can help us build a data center.
Well, masajid are not built by good ideas. Only
some a smile is charity but the poor can eat them you
posted down on the fan page yesterday.
so shameless plug.
Mashallah. But get the education but don't forget your priorities. And being a mom is not such a bad thing.
Because the first 30 years or so of he says life, who do you think was there
was no dad coming into the picture and you know, playing basketball and hanging out doing this thing? She was the ultimate single mom. Do you know about the mother of mu sighs All right.
Do you know about the father of Muslim?
No. Why? It's irrelevant.
The mom was the one that sacrifice the mom was the one that put him in the in the basket and sent him to the Red Sea. Or I'm sorry, down the river.
down the Nile River.
The only time you ever hear about the father of a prophet is if that father was a prophet.
You hear about the mother of Moosa. You hear about the mother of Miriam. I mean, sorry, the mother. You do hear about the mother of Madame as well. And so Tanya Milan, you hear about the mother of Lisa, who was Miriam, you hear about Amina the mother of Mohammed Salatu, Salam. You hear about the wetness of Mohammed Salim who after he died, she was weeping.
And they asked her why are you weeping? Are you crying? Because the son, the you know, who you raised is passed away? She said, No, I'm crying because revelation is over.
It's not about the men sister. It's not about being like the men.
It's about you and the last panel hautala who are meant to be equal to anyway?
I mean, how much damage have we done? Seriously, I
distancing myself right away.
We haven't done any damage except for the little masala incident.
You know, false prophet and all that he was a blind person, apparently, in so many ways.
But who were meant to be equal to?
I mean, if we had to give birth, there'd be no one left.
Because men are not doing that. That's real. Men are not doing that.
I've seen it done twice. And I tell you, I'm not doing it.
He's tapping me. I got 10 minutes.
I'm not gonna chase him off like I did. Who
knows my buddy.
But these are the amazing, amazing I mentioned to you earlier about Khadija Heidi Jia was the engine of Mohammed salatu salam, the very first Muslim, the very first one.
Baba was the first man as far as I know. But Khadija, when he came down from the mountain and after hearing Ecuador, he came to her just like so many of us do. When we're done these tours and and we're done. These events, we rush straight home to our wives. That's what I'm gonna do. As soon as my wife can come to Canada. That's exactly what I do.
That's what he did on the line as
a DJ was his engine. She comforted him. She strengthened him, she reminded him of who he was. that allow would never disgrace him. There's no such thing as
like, just because someone is in the back, doesn't necessarily mean they're in last place.
Doesn't mean that at all. People have this affinity with being in the front or being in the back. It's almost like a little
Kid, you know, when you take your little kids in the car, and they fight over the front seat, a lot of human beings are like that, too. They think because you're in the front, that means some way you're going to be in a better place. Well, if you have to be lambing Dallek, may Allah protect you always. But if you have a car accident, you don't want to be in the front.
And if you think about it, this issue of hijab, and I'm dancing a lot, I know, because I only have like, 10 minutes, and I got to fit a lot of stuff in 10 minutes. I've been prepping for this for two months.
Working now, getting ready, no, dance a little bit, recite the verses in my house, and my neighbors must think I'm nuts, because I talked to myself all the time.
did you realize that everything in this earth that is valuable, is hard to get to?
Like oil, you have to drill deep for oil, you have to drill deep for diamonds, for gold,
and the muslimah, she is far more valuable than those things.
And that's why a lot has instructed her to dress the way she does. It's not about us, it's not about the men saying things. Unfortunately, a lot of people would put us in that position, because we're the ones that shoot off our mouths all the time.
Right, but now we have some amazing female speakers that are really stepping up and doing their thing anyway, so that's gonna change starting today,
But this is the whole thing, right? When you depend on a lot, when you do those things that Allah has ordered you to do, you have to be patient with that. Because just like nadiem, Allah will open the way for you, it may not be as miraculous as your little boy speaking not to cradle Fair enough, but it's going to be miraculous inshallah, for you. And your life.
When I took my Shahada in 96, and I was able to go to Kenya, and give my my wife, her Shahada, her story, compared to mine, my story is Boring.
Boring. Her story is another level. And may Allah protect her always because she has been my engine since 2007. And you will probably see that I will have so you're seeing right now if it wasn't for her constant reminder, constant, constant constant one day, and I hope she doesn't mind me telling you this, because while she's in Africa, I mean,
so many are gonna stop me from telling them? Should I tell them?
Should I tell them or No?
Okay, tell them okay, I'll tell them.
One day, I wanted to not do this. I was tired, you know, you get exhausted from running up and down the highways and roads and oceans. And
so she said to me,
if you don't do this, maybe Allah will punish you.
I said, why, you know, first thing, what did I do? I do nothing.
Because she said and, and Nestle Allah Tada. She said,
that Allah gave you a gift the people. And if you don't use that gift, maybe you'll be asked about that gift.
And this is now what kind of brought me here because then I started to intensify what I do. And may Allah appear for all of our intentions. I'm here to talk about myself. But this is this is a real life example. Because sometimes we listen to books and we read books. And we don't really humanize those people. We think that it's like a long time ago. And they're very romantic figures. It's like almost like you're watching a movie, right?
Like a Bollywood.
Some of us are like that. We read about gender, but gender is really far away from us, right?
Just like we read about Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his amazing relationship with his a few of his other engines, one of them being Asia,
or the line. How he was so romantic with her brothers and guy game like that. I'm sorry. Sorry, you might marry a handsome brother. But he ain't got game like the Messenger of Allah.
Who used to find the place where his engine Aisha would drink from, and he would drink from that place
where he would find the place where she would bite from and he would put his teeth where her teeth were. Brothers don't do that. No more.
come on, like seriously tell these brothers man like he was all flowers and candy when he went to your dad right
now look at him.
You don't even want to buy from the plays you visit from right?
You got no game whatsoever panela
but this is the thing now just because someone is unseen that doesn't mean that a lot doesn't see what they're doing it doesn't mean that he doesn't acknowledge what they're doing so don't ever feel like that says just because some people may make you feel left out
don't feel that you are left out don't allow them to have that much power over you that you become left out.
Because culturally many of us are a disaster
my gender especially a disaster, you will go to the masjid there is no sister of section and if it is you sometimes there's no heat in it.
There's like a little small crackling speaker you can properly hear nevermind see him? Good luck with that you're not gonna see him You gotta be like me.
Or if you do see it's like this you know? They won't the brother sometimes culturally, they won't take the kids so there's kids jumping and flying around and I always get complaints from the sisters.
The brothers don't maintain them as you properly well see, he's gonna tap me again. Let's see.
He walked up the stairs and made all kinds of noise he that
Mashallah, he was I got five minutes left. NIDA
Really five more?
Maximum five more or five now.
What do you say sr?
20. Oh my god. I'm only kidding. I'm only kidding. I gotta go by the rules. Otherwise, they won't bring me back next year.
seeds have changed 2012 I'm booked. I told you that already tonight. I'm the only speaker who books himself at things.
I just say I'm booked and I'm bringing some a inshallah next year.
But I want to close with that.
A lot of times, culturally, like I said, we have been a nightmare for you.
And it's really up to you as well to change that. And that's the whole point of conferences like this. You did an incredible job today. incredible job, amazing job. From the two months ago that I heard about this, and I was at home getting ready. And I actually didn't do a lot in the month of April just because of getting ready for this. You've done an incredible job. And you saw camallo Kula hired on for that.
This is your conference like I told you so many hours ago. You did have a very long day. And I want to just Samir selimiye zacco finale
Mashallah, she's still here and Christina went out. That's a good thing.
Anyways, that is my time. Impact players of seeds of change. This is the first of many insha Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah come with us and allow China to feel closer that Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah when I go to Oh, oh, wow.
Before I go, also,
before I go on, the DVDs are outside and need you guys to support that because that is how we eat
I could make up a big long explanation for you, but I just tell you what, how it is.
That is how we eat when you think Tao I think that
right? So DVDs are outside the Facebook page, y'all need to log on to the Facebook page and you post it.
I'll post it up. Perhaps I've done Malik Claire. After the facebook.com slash thing, you know how it is on the fan page. I post a lot. The sisters will tell you I post a lot and you never know what's going to happen on that page. So just come on the Hydra and join that. And this may be the end of seeds of change one, but it is the beginning of the other seeds of changes and in order for us to do seeds of change too. We got to get out of here right now. So just come along later on. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
