silhouette the lady was cinema who Anna Anna being mean
but it was hobby a domain a marble
so obviously the big elephant in the room and I came in everyone is asking about my I appreciate the concern the love the dogs Aloma. I mean, Allahumma Amin Aloma. I mean,
I love give all of you as she final half year, and good help.
Think it's beneficial to share with you brothers what happened because I want to make a point in addressing this issue.
And that is after performing Hijjah about
in 2017, I think there was a young brother from Manchester, his name is Syed, about 20 years old at that time, he was one of the pilgrims in the hutch. So I've always had ongoing issues with my sight. Left eyes, weak blind now and the right eye is the good eye. So I know some people have that same dilemma. When AI is stronger than the other I
saw when I was young for you young brothers.
The eye doctor told me
he's going to give me a pair of glasses. He's going to put a patch over the right eye.
And it will cause my left it used to get stronger and stronger when I was young.
But I didn't think it was cool to wear glasses especially with a patch on when I
so when people would laugh at me they had a problem.
So I wound up growing up not wearing glasses, so my eyes got bad. If you need to wear glasses wear glasses. Don't be worrying about what these people think your friends you need to wear braces, braces for your teeth. Wareham.
Don't worry about what your friends think of you. It's not corny. It's for your health.
my brother sorry. I told him
I had to go see the eye doctor. So my sisters and optometrists, a young Muslim sister who has a degree in optometry,
she's a professional.
We always are telling you younger brothers especially to get educated. Get a job.
Don't be a person who you think and you believe being a nerd or studious is corny.
Being a bum is corny. Being a person who works for someone else is corny. Being a person who makes minimum wage when you can make more than that, if you would just exert yourself. That's what's causing
the pot of why I'm sharing this with you is for you, young brothers, my students to understand we don't want to be in bones, get a job to help yourself, help your family help your community be able to get married, not be a person who's on welfare. If you can help it might be a person who you have to come and ask for sadaqa if you can help it. She was professional.
So I went to see that lady, and she had state of the art in the equipment. And she found that a number of issues.
One of which is cataracts and glaucoma. So she sent me to a specialist here in Birmingham, who was the specialists, Muslim.
One of the best eye doctors and all of the UK is right here in Birmingham.
Works with a group called Tegra and Aston University.
So I went into that, please. And they were checking my eyes on all kinds of stuff. And then they said we have an emergency. You have a partially detached retina and you're good.
And if you get hit in the head, if you fall, you'll go blind.
They rushed me to the hospital and hospital City Hospital. I went to the hospital and they died.
When I got there, they rushed me into the operating room and they gave me laser surgery. It was tough. Anybody who had laser surgery, you know what I'm talking about the pressing your head and on your eye. You have to keep looking into the light of the laser. It was tough
and humbly laugh
My eyesight was saved by laws. Permission is Rama
COVID King, because of COVID. All of us our medical issues were suspended. NHS has challenges as part of why I'm talking today about the NHS. Because I believe those people work for the NHS, Muslims and non Muslims alike. They are like the unsung heroes who work in this Masjid behind the scenes. The brother who's recording you don't know what he does.
But people work here in the offices, whenever there's going to be election that people were doing things they are the unsung heroes. Now, I know some of you may have terrible experiences with the NHS, if you have to go for an emergency, you have to wait for a long time. And that is a problem. But over all the services that we receive from the NHS is not what you're receiving Africa.
It's not what you receive in India and Bangladesh and Pakistan and Afghanistan and other parts of the Muslim world.
So I rushed to that hospital, they gave me the operation COVID When they said Come in, come get your operation for the cataract. It clear up your eyes. A cataract is an operation which they take these fine
instruments and go in your eyes break up your cataract in your eyes. And then they put this thing inside your eye and they suck out what they broke up from your old cataract and then they put a little plastic thing in your eye, a disc that's going to be now your new cataract. Listen to what I'm about to tell you. You go back and you check this in the year 400 After the Hijrah there was a man from Iraq. His name was Amar avranno Ali and mostly
he was the first one to do eye surgery cataract 400 years after the Hijrah.
How was it that our community now I wish Chabad or under achievers under developers, they want to be bums.
And then someone gets on the mimbar and gives a hug about the golden years of Islam and Islamic Renaissance and knowledge. But I was Shabaab and not educated,
something wrong with the equation. And then we talk about the seller if the seller is the seller for Allah man, the dean and the seller for Allah man, the dunya doctors and things like that.
Back then, that man meet a pin that can go in your eye and it sucks out the things that they broke up in your eye.
So the eye surgery that I got in 2022 and we are now in a new year. We're in a new year. So I'm a year 2022 I got an eye surgery that was done by a Muslim way back then. So I'm going to ask the Shabaab of our Ummah, especially you boys,
you can see that we have a heritage and a connection to knowledge of the deen and knowledge of the dunya Don't be a bone.
Don't be a bum. Now if you have to be a person that sweeps the street and you go to pick up the trash, you know the trash bins, you have to do that, then do it with honor. It's better doing that than asking people and begging for people give me give me they may give you they may not give you
know when I went for the operation the other day and went into the operating room, the people who processed me, Muslims, from Aston University, all Muslims, and they were nice. Many of them know me they were very nice and respectful. When it's time to go into the theater, I went into the theater, who was the doctor was going to perform the surgery. A Muslim Doctor suit a man, one of the best optometrist in the UK. Dr. Sue they met with him was a Muslim girl with him was another Muslim man and with him was a non Muslim Christian. She was a Christian.
She went to shake my hand and I have to be a person like you who we are surviving here in the West. unapologetic Haram is haram Allah was Hala is our deen. Well, we can't be anti sociable people. I remember 1520 years ago, the Shabaab of the UK were rough. The brothers have lightened up a lot. We've come a long way. You millennials.
You have your issues, but back then the people were rough. I know in Brixton women used to wear combat boots you know the black boots
Like there was soldiers, woof kuffaar, dirty, stinking kuffaar. Don't do a stingy. I want to be like, That's how a lot of people existed.
So I wanted to show the lady. Look, I don't shake hands with women, but I don't want her to be upset. I said, I don't shake hands with people, we're not married to me. And plus, if I shake your hand, you may put germs in getting my eye go blind. So she started laughing. And I just wanted her to cool out. I just wanted her to cool out. I didn't want her to be offended. And as I didn't want to have to be offended, I'm not going to apologize. When they stick their hand out, all you have to do with all due respect, I don't do that. You don't have to feel like a second class citizen and apologize to people and then feel you have to do it or feel some kind of way. No, I just I don't do
that. So she laughed when she saw them dealing with me like that. She's so had the Muslims were
brother, Dr. Surrey man did the surgery I came out. The surgery was done.
Afro Caribbean lady, she dealt with processing me out. She does work traveling to Africa in all parts of Africa with this thing called Doctors Without Borders. I told you my goal is Syrian humanitarian works and her and I struck up a conversation started asking her about Islam. She said well look, I already know a lot about Islam. I want to tell you that when you go home you can pray you can pray making sedge that the lady said Christian Lee she said you can't make such as the how you know that. She said Dr. Seuss, a man
says the SOFIA showing given lady dollars so she processed me. You can't make sense to because the pressure on your eyes. Really nice lady gave me a vibe that she's going to be a Muslim one day in sha Allah azza wa jal after that. I went back to leave.
When I went to Leeds, I was overwhelmed because I can't see. I'm walking around and I can't see I can't see your faces right now. Because it doesn't work. And you're all blurry and fuzzy.
So I'm off to square.
When I took the train, everything was just it's it's tough. The name of Allah.
Allah He the Netmarble Allah. I know that the eyesight is important. Allah mentioned so many eyes of the Quran, reminding people about the namah alumna dialogue I name what do you sign him was chef attain.
He said to be made in San Simeon basura. Gave you ears to hear and sight. And once one of them goals is going to affect everything else while lying, big challenge. Anyway, I wound up leaving my drip in Birmingham, very important that I take these drips. Very important. When I got to leave, I couldn't do anything. I dial 111 I tried to get some emergency meds. They would give me a hard time given me to run around. I went to my local pharmacist, chemist, Muslim brothers she fat I told them what happened. The brothers say Nah, we can't do that. Can't get you know, over the counter drugs like this. This is serious drug this that. I said, Man, I need them. I need them drips, man. He said I'm
not going to do it. He doesn't know me. I left. I tried to get it in other ways didn't work. I was forced. I went back to that man. In the nighttime. I said, Listen, all I'm asking you is let me take two boxes of the two one that I need. I take one drip and leave it and I sawed the stuff. I'm gonna pay for it.
You say now you don't have to do that. I'm gonna give it to you.
So he gave it to me. He gave it to him because he believed my story.
I'm Muslim pharmacist.
My brother Muslim pharmacists
is another reason why we want to encourage you brothers, not just the girls from our community, not just the girls in assistance from our community, who tend to excel academically more than the Shabbat.
One of the reasons why we want you to be professional is not so that you can just make a lot of money but so that you can help Ellis lamb and the Muslims.
He helped me on the strength of Al Islam. He didn't know me.
He didn't know me. I said listen, I was thankful and grateful I say you come to my mischief Friday. I'm gonna mention when the hookah because I want to tell the community about the importance of cooperating with each other
And what you did.
So now what do I want to mention? I have to share that story with you. And a lot more can be said, We are here in the UK. And now that we're here in the UK, as always tell you we are not second class citizens. We don't apologize. We don't bite our tongue. We walk and we are so we have honor and respect. And we don't see ourselves as being inferior to anybody.
We don't apologize. But we can be a problem on the system. We as a community are a problem on this system.
Allah told us as you all know, we're the best Ummah that has been brought forth out for mankind. Because we make an armor my roof and a nail mancha we believe in Allah. But when it comes to the Dole, the dough, the dope welfare, we as a community are heavy on the system.
When it comes to the penal system, the prisons, the jails, we are a problem.
All you have to do is ask any imam who goes into the prisons for dollar, what is the condition like in the prisons, the Muslims run the prisons, the Muslims are in the prisons, the Muslims are a problem. We are right here in the city of Birmingham, I don't have to tell you how many kids we know got killed on Coventry row shot stabbed.
Remember, during the days of Ramadan of Iraq fat, some brother got killed, close to Greenland shot in a car. And a lot of shootings take place, Muslim or Muslim crying, we have problem on the system. We shouldn't be a problem on a system. Especially Listen to me, when the system benefits us. How does the system benefit us? The eye operation that I got for free.
And you sit in that, oh, he's your wife had a baby, you know, and then cost you any money. Not only that, not only that, but the medical attention that we can get and receive for an example, back in Africa where I come from. And I'm not putting Africa down.
Where I come from back in Africa. A lady is pregnant if you don't have money, living in Africa is a challenge. All it is fitting in for sat out here. Someone says I'm taking my kid to Kenya, I'm taking my kid back to Somalia, Mashallah. Mashallah, no problem. One of the biggest challenges you're gonna face is money. When you get sick, someone gets sick. This is one of the biggest challenges living in the Muslim world.
If you have money, you can get it done. And sometimes if you get it done, it's not even done, right. I'm not putting the Muslims down and put begging up Europeans No, but the reality of it is you have a pregnant wife, she has access to get in a scan, she has access to a nurse coming to her house, finding out what's going on.
So there are people who are dying in Africa and Pakistan and where we've come from in the Arab world, who the colors are covered. You gotta die when you were meant to die. But although that's the case, some people are dying as a result of lack of access. Lack of access is a simple thing that can be taken care of. But because we don't have access, we die.
And why are we all in this country? Why? Because life in our countries our problems so we came here. So I'm speaking to the intellect of the youngster, man, woman with our bra. He got it mixed up. He's existing, really hatred, hate and everybody's is upset. No, no, no, don't be like that.
I came here to remind you of this three people three things. I want to remind you,
the Christians and this is a Christian country. They have a special place in Ellis lamb.
I need you to pay attention so that you don't get up here leaving misunderstanding. Let me make it clear. There are texts that we will not neglect. Like what Allah told his prophet in his Rasool sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Well I titled the ankle Yahoo do Alain Massara Tabea maletto the Jews the Christians won't be happy with you Muhammad and to you follow their religion should go for it and all that other stuff. We're not going to follow that I in a way.
Allah said another item of crime meaning I get cut.
bed that elbow bombing of why he might tofield colo Akbar, the animosity, the enmity has come, and it manifested on the atones. And what they hide in their heart is worse than what you see in what you hear.
I believe some of these people, if they can get rid of us, they'll put a wall up and they will get rid of us exterminate us if they can, some of them would do that. So we're not going to reject those a hadith right here in this class for the Hadith,
of the book that we're dealing with. We dealt with the Hadith, that the nations are going to come together
against this community, like the Dinah's come together, and they converge on a plate. We're going to take all of those Ahadi and we won't forget them. Well, we're going to say to you brothers, there are a number of other I had an idea that you had to know
that the Christians have a position in this religion. Don't be like that bird with one wing. Because if you try to fly with one wing, your navigational skills will be compromised, you're gonna go in circles gonna bump into the wall while you can't fly, right? You need two wings, the wing of fear, Allah never forgive me. Let me not forgive me. I'm not put me in hell. And the Wings of Hope. I'm hoping if you lie, I lost a lot. I'll get into Jana, you'll fly like that. As for the one I'm gonna go to their Hellfire I don't you in trouble, you're in trouble. And the one over here, I'm going to do everything under the sun. That's haram because I say Allah Eli, you in trouble. Gotta be
balanced. So we have those missiles, about the cuff and the kuffaar. And then we have some new souls that you have to consider. And that's what I want to share with you today.
To remind you of our responsibility, don't be heavy on the system.
We shouldn't be the ones who are breaking their laws of traffic. Wala had an idea one time and I talked to the people who got greenlit and I said I want to do a hook but but in the hook but I want you to take some pictures of the way we park around our city. The way we park around the masjid in the round Birmingham.
We park on the sidewalk. So if a lady's coming with a pram she has to go out into the street to get around your car. That's how we are. That's how we are anti social behavior left right and center.
So I told him I want to just put like pictures up of this and give a football about our responsibility and things like that. The way you park is down the way you are in your house. You got trash and junk and garbage in front of your house. I saw a thing I don't know if I should say this. In Manchester there was a Muslim family had some beef with some non Muslim neighbors. But if you saw how they all were living, it wasn't strange. No, I was street should be the nicest Street and the cleanest streets and we should be the best neighbors how we park and how we deal like some of our Chabad they don't give a rat's ear, about the heart of the neighbor about how they come across in
the eyes of people who hate our religion already. You got to understand we are in a Christian country and Al Islam, Allah gave them a special position.
I'm here to tell you that to remind everybody of the duties we should be from the Shakira in. Allah's Prophet told the people SallAllahu it was selling the malum Yashika NAS Let me kill Allah, the One who didn't and doesn't think the people and nice white, black Rich, poor Muslim, non Muslim, whoever they think the people who haven't thanked Allah
we'll see yes Zilla who Shaqiri Allah is going to think he's going to reward those who are faithful. But as the Quran said, when I conduct federal law, you're scoring more seven, Duncan things.
Most of them don't give things.
We don't want to be like that. You don't want to be like that. Rasul Allah told me I live in New Jebel Yamaha I'm going to give you some advice. I love you. I'm gonna advise you, for every prayer make this dua at the end Don't say cintamani come before you make this prayer. Why don't you pray Juma prayer Eid prayer, Sunnah prayer with a prayer, every prayer and one of those DWIs is Allahumma I need out a victory cup was shook rica
will host the bad Attica Oh Allah helped me assist me to make vicar of you.
I need to be protected. I mean, thicker my eyes, my health my babies, I get in a car, I get an accident. Anything can happen.
So don't let me be a person who doesn't make Vic
I'm a Muslim since 1986, the only dua that I know the only do I know is
one do I since that time one
no I should know more than that. I don't know the car, having relationships what to say when I eat what to say when I forget to eat, put up my clothes. Know Allah made me of those people who make vicar and help me, help me to give you sugar helped me to be thankful and grateful.
Allah said no Quran
what I taught coming coolly myself to move, when to do namah to Allah, Allah so Allah has given you people from everything you asked him for. And if you were to count the number of the names of Allah, you'll never be able to do so. So make us from those who are shakin. So a man said to Allahu taala, what was it me in a school, matriculating an empty alley? And why did they bless me helped me assist me to thank you for the nourishment you gave to me and the network that you put on my parents. That will be my mother.
Most people don't give sugar and the sugar is in many ways. It is praying in giving Dawa doing things giving sadaqa and it's also talking about the NEMA
talking about it Well, being their material Becca for her death in surah. Two Doha the prophets of death be named dilla shook crew ha. When you talk about the name of Allah is part of the Shaka but you talk about it to people who don't give you the evil eye inshallah.
So where's the sugar? Where's the sugar? Am I saying? We love coffee and shake? No. I'm saying there's another side to the equation. Let us have a look at that side of the equation. Two companions. One His name is Ellen mustard. Ibnu Shaddai the reporter she may Allah be pleased with him. He was sitting with Ahmed have been an hour's tremendous companion. Elmo story said takamasa to Rome, axolotl, Nas, yomo Kiana will be established and the Romans,
the Vatican, white people, Romans, Europeans, they're going to be the majority of the people.
I'm going to be last we heard that he said, upset my two cool. Watch what you say. You talking to me that from? You said don't tell me why should I say that's what the Prophet told me SallAllahu it was suddenly.
So why as a Muslim from what we believe about yomo Qiyamah is the majority of the people during that time are going to be Romans.
I'm going to ask her that pay attention, he says since the Prophet said it, I know why. And then he started praising the Christians.
He said because they have four characteristics. This is a Muslim.
He said in no home luminize and the fitna, when it comes to a fitna, they have the most held as the softest most generous people, easygoing people when there's a fitna
he said well home home, ASTRA home, in fact that embargo masiva if something befalls them like a character from the collider, a catastrophe, a masiva, earthquake, hurricane flood, if a big catastrophe hits them COVID Something big hits them. They're the quickest people out of all the people, they return back to their situation quicker than anybody else.
Whereas if a Musa befalls his he's out of commission for two years you can't get on you lost his mother lost sister lost his wife was baby he can get back in the saddle for six months.
The third thing he said home Oh shackle
Oh Shaco he said well, the hola I'm home. Home. Oh Shaco hmm. chirothin Bother Ferrara. If they ever fight and they run away they come back cricket and anybody else that understand this point, running away from the battlefield as a major sin in Islam is call it to well Lee Yamazaki
it's a sign that you are chunk your punk
and that's not a positive characteristic and Nellis fan we got to have radula you have to have bravery. You can't be a person you hear something downstairs you say to your wife Hey, what's going on? Go downstairs and check it who does that? Although
Although it can be imminent danger to him, he says to his wife, yo, watch the girls watch you. I gotta go and deal with this. And he's nervous. But he knows anyone who was killed definitive, his family, his honor, he's a shaheed. As for the guy, he's close the door, and He locked the door and his kids over there. No man, you got to take the bull by the horns and another slam, if the Muslims engage the non Muslims in jihad, real jihad is not permissible to run away. You can run away as a strategy of war you run around there to regroup by running away, no. On a day of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never ran away. He along with Abu Bakar and aroma and Earth man,
they went to Ohio to get away. And when he got an Ohio, they faced enemy again,
never ran away.
So this man said that these Christians, these Romans, If they run away, they come back quicker than anybody else. But you got to know Running away is a major sin in Islam.
So some of us run away.
In the school, your child is having an issue, you won't go and face those people in the school and say that's my baby. Where's the head? Teacher? I need a meeting up in here.
We're scared of that. Why is he scared? He doesn't have the language. I understand that. No, those are babies.
The doctor, the office where your wife goes, she doesn't feel she's being treated nicely. The local
people in the store, they treat your wife, your daughter, your son, and they're nasty. You don't go do anything about it.
Muslim has to step up to the pumping a plate and deal with it. That's the third thing. Fourth thing that I'm having said about those questions, listen to it and said, home hire Oh, nice, little miskeen. Well, your team, what if they are the best people, to the often the best people, to the poor person, and the best people to the vulnerable
to the vulnerable.
All of these laws that these people are putting to protect children. We don't have those laws many times in the Muslim world. We don't have those laws. They go overboard in some of this stuff like the RSPCA and all the Rockman that they show the animals.
And then he added a fifth thing. And the fifth thing is tremendous. The fifth thing you said
that those people were, um, now home,
vulnerable Moloch. More than any other people, these Romans, these Christians will stop the leaders from doing oppression more than any other group of people. That doesn't mean that the leaders are not oppressive. didn't say that. You're not going to tell me Obama is not an oppressor. Bush is not an oppressor. Biden is not an oppressor, you're not going to tell me these trumpets. Not all of them are oppressors. But even those guys, there are checks and balances. You get hit caught with your hand in the cookie jar, you may get in trouble. Don't misunderstand what I'm saying. You know, they have in America, what's known as white collar crime, white collar crime. That's the green light,
that rich people have to steal money.
We're not going to negate that. But we see that they hold people accountable, even powerful people whereas as you all know, in the Muslim world, this is not putting the Muslims down. You can shoot someone kill him gay, and everybody he has sees it and witnesses it. And it's on CCTV, but if you have money to pay the judge and the police, he's gonna walk that's in Africa. That's in Pakistan. That's an Indian Bangladesh, that's an Afghanistan
don't misunderstand, we're not going to lose and leave those no souls that describe their reality.
But out of all of the people, this companion said, they're the people who stop the leaders from oppression more than any other people.
Obviously, he's talking about the non Muslims, not the Muslims of that time, but he was praising them. All of these acquire indications of the virtues of the Romans.
But we go a step further, the book of Allah.
Allah seven the Quran, liturgy, then shut the NASCI I Dawa 10 levena Amman, Julio hood
When levena Shaco when he didn't shed the home what the tendon levena Amman who live in Nepal who in Surah, that it could be an minhang because he's seen more of Banham whom legis that be rules in dryer, you will find those people who have the most animosity and hatred and enmity towards those who are believers, the Yehudah. And those people who have shipped mystery Kuhn, they your whole, because they have has said, and then which should be cool because the religion of Schoodic is diametrically opposed to the religion of Tawheed. And this is why you find the Indian apartheid state dealing with the Muslims the way they're dealing with them.
There is no difference between the apartheid of South Africa and the apartheid in India right now, who's on good terms with America on good terms with all of these countries in Europe?
Then they want to talk about freedom and justice. Come on, it says again.
The Israeli Zionist that is a part time animal him. The next is said, and you will find those people closest to the believers in love and respect. The ones who say we are Christians, and that is because from them are priests and monks, and they are not arrogant.
They don't have keeping a mystic bar.
So if they're not arrogant, then that means we have to give them Dawa.
You have a neighbor who's a Christian you have to give him Dawa.
You are a person who's married to a lady who is a Christian. You have to give Dawa to a family listen
the Christians in Ellis fam if I would ask you guys the machete cone of courage fought against the newbie although they knew who he was Salah while he was sent him and his virtues and I knew I will bucket I knew all of that. But they still fought against his religion, their religion, telling them be up, right, give good, do good and they still fought against because they're shifting, Cofer.
Who were the people who embrace the Muslims when they may hit you. I'm asking you who are they?
The Christians from were
from Ethiopia. As an African American who's proud to be African and above the melanin in my skin. I'm not going to sit here and say they were black Christians. You know, I don't care black, white, purple. I'm not into that stuff. The fact of the matter is they were Christians.
And that's why I'm gonna say but he said he had knowledge about them. He said that they are the people who stop the leaders from oppression more than anyone else. They have mercy they said that. So when the new Joshi heard the Dawa of the Muslims from Jaffa and if not, it may not be tolerated. He said to the chiefs of courage. You see this line? There is nothing between me and these people except this line. You can't harm them, get out of here, get out and he protected them. When he died. Radi Allahu Anhu then a Joshi Rasul Allah was informed by Jabril told the people the righteous man, your brother has died. He makes a lot of Janaza for the right.
He's a Muslim, Christian. He was
the prophet son, Ibrahim.
His mother was a slave, not a wife was a slave given to the Nabhi as a gift sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by the leader of Egypt. Her name is Madea, the Coptic.
He was a Christian. She delivered the last child of the seeds of Benny Adams so Lola Why don't you send them a rub the Allah on
TV became a Muslim Christian. She was
the mother of Rasulullah son used to be a Coptic river.
And then there were those people who were with him, windbreaks her son, like a man by the name of ID Ben had to apply. He was a tremendous man and Januvia and his father was a tremendous man and Jay via his father's name is Hi Tim McGraw II. He's a person who in the history of the Arabs and the Arabs are a group of people who are Kurama they have cut them
and you'll find any group of people who are have some mix with them from Africa, they have more cut them than other Africans.
doesn't mean like, the Africans don't have any Arab in them. They're not Koroma because the deen makes you, Corinne. But if Arabs mix with people, Asian, Tunis, Libya, places like that Somalia, you will find that thing that the Arabs they used to pride themselves on for this man. If you are a generous person, the Arabs who say he's Corinne, like Hatton or thought
his son and daughter, but that man he didn't accept Islam because he died before Rasulullah became a real Sue so he died. But he suddenly his daughter, they accepted Ellis lamb, powerful, important, his son came listen to the Dawa than the being braces slam, the man had a cross on his neck russula to the man and praises them told him take off this idle from your neck. He took it off, he threw it away.
Not permissible for Muslim to wear any jewelry with a cross on it. Man or woman put a cross on your body with
tattoos. Anytime we see a cross, we break the cross the face to cross that's the Sunnah. That's what isa Blumarine was gonna do, when it comes back is gonna break the cross and kill the swine and reject the jizya.
So all of that shows and indicates in 20, the nassarawa they have a place in our religion, what happened? What happens and we take these missiles and we take these missiles. There is a surah in the Quran called Surah Rome. Did you guys know that? Sort of Rome, the surah of the Romans, the surah of the Roman the Vatican
over there, the Vatican.
Allah says in surah to Rome and the flam mean holy but to Rome.
More whom fee add an arrow. We're human body rally be himself. So yeah, to the bone fee biddies cine Lilla Hill Ammerman, couple of members were young man living just throw me known Venus Rila young soul Romania shot well who will Aziz Rahim. The Romans have been defeated, and they've been defeated in the land as close to Mecca. They've been defeated in the land, close to Mecca. And after they've been defeated, they're going to come back and they're going to win within three to nine years. Allah is responsible for whatever happens in the world. And when they defeat them after them being defeated. The believers are going to become happy,
happy because of the necessity of Allah.
The Siena story behind this is
the Romans had a fight during Prophet Muhammad's time salAllahu alayhi wasallam with the Persian and they had a fight at that area. Jordan, Palestine, Iraq and Syria. If you ever go to Jordan, one of the so called Seven Wonders of the World, you know, the seven wonders of the world. When is in Uganda anybody know what it's called?
Kilimanjaro? No, that's in Kenya. Anybody know one of the seven wonders of the world in Uganda.
Is that waterfall?
The Niagara for mess? That's in Canada man.
The Victoria Falls, called Victoria Falls, Gandy Gundams don't have girls named Victoria.
But it's one of the Seven Wonders another one is in Jordan called Petra is where the Romans were and they built coliseums and a lot of stuff there. The relics of their civilization is still there. Right now, we have following Romans in the weeks and the days and the months that were upon were found when them right now powerful. They fought the Persians, the Persians was surely corn. So the kuffaar of Quraysh were hoping that they would win. The Romans will go far, but they were Christians. And the Muslims were hoping that they will win, because they have a divinely, divinely divinely revealed book. So when they fought, the Persians won, and then Allah said, they are going
to win after this within three to nine years. And it happened and it was deleted that the prophets of Allah who was selling them was sent by Allah, how can he prophesized that so when the Muslims came, when the Romans came, they defeated them after that, why would they come?
hangers get happy and hope that the Romans win.
Not because they were rooting for cool free shirt, but because they're closer to us than those other people are. They're closer to us. We're in a Christian country. And we should behave a certain way with Christian people. They have knowledge of the Book, some kind of Eman. They have jazz, no doubt about that, no doubt about it. But what I'm telling you here and the message here today is a message of being balanced
Allah allowed us to marry their women, Allah allowed us to eat their food in the Quran as permissible.
So in concluding, I want to give this message to you guys. First of all, for the older people in our community.
Go and get your eyes checked.
Go and get yourself checked for prostate cancer. Take care of your high blood pressure, the way we eat salt, ghee, or you cooked as fried food that's cooked. We don't live a healthy lifestyle. We don't exercise. Some of these diseases can be prevented by loss permission. Some of us have a car, we are sure to go in Oh mot that car, you're going to mot that car. You need the MOT yourself, especially if you are getting older.
Second of all, why? Because they have technology now that can help us be in the lab. Don't come and tell me. No, I'm going to work on if death was meant for me death is meant for me. I never go to the hospital. Can you believe this? A lot of African American men won't go to the hospital the doctor until it's too late.
He has all kinds of signs something wrong with you, man.
Blood is coming out when he goes to the toilet. And he doesn't know that something's wrong brother.
What do you think that comes from? Because you got a problem, go get it checked out.
Take your mess, and take care of yourself. Second of all, you young brothers
got to do something with your life. Don't be a bum. Everybody can go to Medina, try to go to Medina. Wonderful, good opportunity. Go wherever you can go get educated wherever you go. But try try to get yourself a degree.
And it's not all about a degree neither you have a brother and another brother, another brother, you're a Shipka your your your your blood brothers. Develop some general generational wealth between you and your family. Go work with your father, before you finally you come up with some ideas and put your money together. Right here in green lane, whatever community but we have to develop a school for ourselves for our children.
So young brothers, especially
the controversial brother, Daniel, have Peter to
people find it very difficult.
Listening to the brother because he's saying things that are shocking, like, Muslim women shouldn't go to the university.
When some people hear that they can't get their heads around it. Some people can get their heads around it but may not agree. And then people can get their heads around it and agree with that.
But because it's new the nuance of women, Muslim women, should I say the same thing? Yes, they shouldn't go to the university. If the men were doing what they were supposed to be doing. Right now in this semester right now. We're either taken welfare, or we grew up on the welfare and I don't make it haram.
I just say that Allah loves the slave, who is the independent. He doesn't notch people for anything that people accepted slammed with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they accepted Islam after accepting Islam. He said to those people by your only give me the bed. They say God also Allah we gave you the bat. He said by your own ego. He said we gave you the bat we will you want us to give you basically by earning. So we got to the back. You said it again. They said okay, I want to give you the bay I want. You said give me the bear. And just aloo che don't ask anybody for anything.
Don't ask any one for anything. So the one who narrated that hadith. He said from the nine people were with me when we took the bat that we want
ask people for anything. When one of us were right on our horse, if the whip fell down, we didn't say Hey, yo little man middleman, come pick that up and give it they didn't say that.
Hey, nephew nephew, come and pick that up. And he's gonna do it gladly. Because it's southern cover him.
That guy would get that companion we get off of this horse and getting back, get back on.
So for you young brothers, get some education. Third, and lastly,
living in this society whiny we have a responsibility, do what you're supposed to do. And being an upright citizen, don't break the law. Don't get fake mo T's for an example. When you know your car needs to be taken care of things like that. That's our responsibility. We can't be people are antisocial, not behavior come of causing all these problems, be appreciative that we are in a place where the quality of our lives is better than the quality of the lives where we come from. Some people don't like to hear that.
No, I didn't want to hear that we missed him does he's not hearing me. He's thinking that I'm rejecting all of those in the source. I'm not gonna judge and I'm not one of those people who has an inferiority complex, Why think everything that's not Islamic, and I'm Muslim as well. And I'm not like that. No, I'm just telling you the reality that we are living in a place where the quality of life makes it very difficult for us now, to try to make Hijra somewhere where we're going to be catered to, we're going to make Hedra to where they're gonna give us some karma. But are they gonna give us any karma? So we have to use it. We have to choose some of those countries, that the
standard of living is much less. You have to deal with diseases. You have to deal with lack of security, you have to deal with so much lawlessness. If you find that place where you can go and protect your deen go in and do that. If death comes to you in that condition inshallah you go to Jannah Allah is responsible for you. So Allah so Allah Azza wa sallam is, you know, Dom and for you? No problem. But I'm not going to tell people you gotta make Hijra. You can't live here. You can't live here. No, I say why we live here. Let's add on to the quality of life and not subtract from it, and be of the people who are faring just and those people are grateful. And most people are
thankful, grateful and thankful. This is a message that I wanted to send to you brothers as wanting to give to the community. You young brothers, my students, especially, we want you brothers to produce I see some brothers who haven't seen him in a long time. When I see those brothers and say, Well, you bet he says I'm in the university. I'm in the last year of the university I don't say anything to him. I don't say anything to him. Because that's the bad from the bad data. Ellis let me just say hold on to your dean my in the university and why you guys are trying to make it do what you got to do. Okay, we're gonna stop here right now inshallah we'll Tala We ask Allah azza wa jal
to give us tofield.
