shoe shala is with Jeff, we're gonna suspend our normal class today. But for those of you who are taking notes in shallow, I still would request desire, hope that you could to take some notes, we're going to deal with the issue of this being black history month,

00:00:54--> 00:00:58

a month that I don't know where it comes from,

00:01:00--> 00:01:12

is as if they want to reduce all of the contributions of Black or African civilization into one month, which is one, are you going to fit that into one month.

00:01:14--> 00:01:41

But at least here in the UK, they chose the month of October, which has 3031 days, 31 days. In America, they gave us the month of February, and only has 28 days. So they gave us the shortest month in America to acknowledge this issue, at least here. I gave you 31 days, which I believe is part of the systemic racism that we have in America anyway, I

00:01:42--> 00:01:51

want to make something clear in regard to this issue they want to talk about and remind you all of that is the issue of the danger of racism.

00:01:52--> 00:01:59

And the vast majority of us are racist in some shape, form or fashion.

00:02:00--> 00:02:30

If you took the time out to really look at what people are thinking and seeing how they're feeling about other people of different colors, and nationalities, you'll find 98 99% of the people from the Muslims are racist. So we want to make a 10 B in a tip here about the Torah of this issue, the danger of it, and how evil it is, and how ignorant it is. But before that, I want to make something very clear about Black History Month.

00:02:31--> 00:03:19

We're not talking about this in celebration of Black History Month because I've always told you people in this mess j McDowell is not permissible for us to celebrate any of the holidays of the non Muslims, Christmas, Easter Thanksgiving, all of that stuff is haraam. And the fact that in America for example, you get a Hello turkey or Hello chicken. For Christmas, Easter Thanksgiving doesn't make the celebration of that month Hello. Now permissible. And this is from the keytab of Allah and also from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In surah, Al Furqan, Allahu taala mentioned his servants, why he by the man in the veniam, shuna altona. The servants of Allah are a

00:03:19--> 00:03:34

man, they walk on the earth with humility. They're not arrogant, and then allow when to mention some other characteristics of the Buddha came from the Muslim mean. And one of the things he mentioned in sort of Furqan is

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

what are your shadow nisour.

00:03:38--> 00:04:23

The true believers have a lot, they don't bear false witness, Shahada to Zeus. That actually means literally, when you go to a court of law, and you have to be a witness for someone, and you're lying, and you're supposed to be a witness, your friend brings you and says to you, you're going to witness for me and you're lying. You're seeing the opposite of what you know happen. And that's from the major sins in Islam. Because we have to stand out as witnesses for Allah over ourselves. And over our family fathers mothers tried all of that. So that's the meaning of Shahada to Zoo to bear false witness. But it can mean other things. It can mean a person passing gas in an assembly of

00:04:23--> 00:04:31

people. And he does it in a way when it starts to smell he wants to make other people think that someone else did it. That Shahada to zoo.

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

But the greatest scholar of Islam from the tambourine, his name is Mujahid. He took the Quran from Lebanon bass, and he said, I went to the crown with Mr. Bass so many times, not 12345 more than 10 times the whole Quran. He said, I stopped him on every ayat and I said What does this mean? What does this mean? What does this mean? So when it came to the explanation of this, they

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

don't bear false witness Mujahid said the meaning of this idea is they don't celebrate the celebrations of the kuffaar. They don't celebrate the celebrations of the kofod. So he used that ayat of the Quran to prove East is not permissible for you to celebrate Christmas. Even if you don't believe in it, you can't celebrate it, because it is bearing false witness to the birth of visa Merriam, to the death of a seven Americans Kevin, for people in America celebrating Thanksgiving is Kevin and Ville. And for jure and Fisk. How are we going to celebrate what happened to the Native Americans after these people from England went there and stole their land and decimated those

00:05:48--> 00:06:26

people. And we're going to celebrate that. That's a little kid do that. As an African American, I would be highly upset at people who celebrate what happened to my people when we were taken from West Africa, brought to America as slaves. I'd be upset, offended if someone celebrated that because To this day, my people are still suffering from the remnants of that situation. So when we talk about Black History Month, I don't believe it's permissible in this Deen to celebrate any of the ayat of the mushrikeen.

00:06:27--> 00:07:01

The man came and say Gatto Sula, I made an oath another, which is from Islam to take an oath will lie here If this happens, I'm going to give 1000 pounds on sadaqa that's another I took an oath jasola that I'm going to slaughter a camel at a place called bawana. Should I do my oath? Should I fulfill it? The Prophet said that please. bawana is it a place where they have a snam they have idols that the non Muslims worship, you say no.

00:07:02--> 00:07:45

He said, is that a place where the non Muslims celebrate their celebrations? They are Yeah. He said no. He said even ofI be never acting go ahead fulfill your oath. So we understand if they had idols there don't fulfill your oath should Cofer is there. We understand if it was a place they did celebrations he would have said don't celebrate there. Then number of a dealer Now's not the time to get all into that. I just want to make it clear. When I say we're acknowledging Black History Month, we're not celebrating this problem I'm making to Medina sallallahu Sallam and he saw that the non Muslims were celebrating things and he said to his companions, what is this that they're doing? They

00:07:45--> 00:08:31

say out of sola. This is something we used to do in jahir. Our forefathers, he told them something the loved one he was seldom in Allah abdelhak ma who hire men who ate l fitter were eaten up Ha. He said Allah has given you people with celebration better than what these non Muslims are doing. Although they're from your people in Medina, he gave you the celebration of and read the celebration of a them up here and Aiden fetter. We have the weekly celebration which is Juma you have a baby celebrate the aka your son memorize Quran Jews ama, Abdullah now bass when he memorized Soto, Bukhara he slaughtered the camel until the people come on.

00:08:32--> 00:08:42

Your child graduates from university gets accepted into Cambridge and he's going to hold on to his D celebrate. You're going to have a party we're going to have party time.

00:08:44--> 00:09:05

You've been unemployed every since Corona came. Now you got that job. You wasn't sure you're going to get you got that job is party time. What party time, music and all that no celebration having a good time. As for Easter, Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Halloween, not permissible haraam.

00:09:07--> 00:09:45

This is Black History Month unless celebrating this. I don't need people to give me a month to acknowledge the contributions of African people, black people, not only to Islam, but to civilization. But we take advantage of these opportunities to give lectures to raise the awareness like Christmas comes. We have a Christmas conference, not a celebration. Because we are a school we offer work the holidays. So not the Christmas that we're doing. We're taking advantage of the day Easter conference, for example. So I want to make that clear. Second thing before we get into this issue of racism is the issue of Black Lives Matter.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

Black Lives Matter. I want to make that clear. But when I say Black Lives Matter, I do not mean the ethos, e t. h o s the people who made up that organization

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

They support LBGT and homosexuality and they have another agenda. I don't support any of that. That's not what I mean, when I say Black Lives Matter. It's not what I'm talking about, when I'm talking about is the way the police, police, African Americans in America is different from the way they police white people. So George Floyd that was killed, and other African American men and women that were killed. I want to ask you people, Did any of you just one? Did you ever see the news where they killed a white kid or white woman? Any of you see that? No, it's just my people. So Black Lives Matter. That's what I mean. And I bite my tongue for no one about that. As for that other stuff, I

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

got nothing to do with that. I have nothing to do with that.

00:10:50--> 00:11:24

And I want my brothers who want this downward mubaraka to stop worrying about other people's problems before they worry about us. The most important problems that we should concern ourselves with are the problems facing our oma all of the members of our oma. But then after that I'm an African American. I'm not Somali, I'm not Sudan. I'm not from Cameroon. You get the picture. What I look like giving Dawa addressing the issues of Cameroon and I'm right here, and I'm in America in the UK. And I'm talking about the upcoming elections in Nigeria.

00:11:25--> 00:12:09

No, I care about what's going to happen in that election as it relates to Nigerians but that's not the most important issue to me. The most important issue to me is what happens to my people in America. So my first people are Islam and the Muslims lie attack me no no caffeine at all the Atman dueling meaning with the believers and well our Bora but the prophets in the messengers came solo out to LA he was salamati Jemaine and he used to give down they say yeah, call me boo boo, la mala kumin Ilan. Omar, people worship Allah. I remember when I became a Muslim, and I met some brothers from Jamaat to believe an African American brothers were with them. And they had been with him a

00:12:09--> 00:12:34

long time, I was a new Muslim. And I was looking at my African American brothers who were older than me 40 5060s and we would go to the message and I will meet these brothers. And they were talking to me in broken English, African Americans like me, and they will speak English like Pakistani Asian people, my brother, my brother, and he used to do that bobblehead as well. I said well what is this

00:12:35--> 00:12:50

when I become a Muslim I don't have to dress like an Arab with a good trail. I don't have to wear tie wheeze the Somalis? They were that longing mirror what is it call my wheeze I'm a walk around in my wheeze

00:12:51--> 00:13:40

and America all those Pakistani pointy shoes you know that hat Pakistani people and I'm gonna walk around with that. Now if you want to do that, because that floats your boat, no problem. No problem. But that's not Islam. In order to be a Muslim after speak broken Arabic like a foreigner like a brother from Arabia who came here, new off the plane. So that's what I mean by Black Lives Matter. Anyone who doesn't agree and he thinks that I'm on the wrong path and not under throttle Mr. Payne? Well, no, he my doors open brother. Come and talk to me. I won't listen to you. Perhaps you'll understand me? I'll understand you. But I am a black nationalist, and I'm a black a pan Africanist.

00:13:40--> 00:13:49

That's what I am. But what does that mean? That black people are first black is no, I have filters I have filters

00:13:50--> 00:14:02

allow Tyler's Prophet told us some Allah when he was Salaam la slum ooyala. Willa, your lolly. Ellis lamb is up most. And nothing goes over Islam. Nothing.

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

After that, want to talk about this issue of racism and I want to repeat the vast majority of us are racist.

00:14:14--> 00:14:29

Even people of color are racist. You saw what happened in Rwanda with the two seas and the two tools, you know, whatever it was two tribes where, look wherever we come from. We are racist.

00:14:31--> 00:14:57

So Ellis lamb dealt with this. And this is one of the main reasons why I became a Muslim. I then become a Muslim because I had an epiphany. And suddenly I realized the importance of tawheed. Now, I became a Muslim because I saw that Al Islam dealt with the race issue unequivocally, categorically made it clear. Christianity doesn't do that Christianity is a racist religion.

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

Because of

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

According to them a seven homeroom is white, the Son of God is white.

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

Judaism they say that they are the Shambhala.

00:15:10--> 00:15:37

They are ullas chosen group. So this is my house. This is my land. I'm living in this land for centuries. But he believes God promised him and his forefathers, the land of my forefathers, and he comes and takes my land and kills me in the process. And the Zionist Jew believes that that's okay. Not all Jews, but the Zionist. They think they're better than everybody.

00:15:39--> 00:16:22

Sikhism Hinduism, and it is systemic, institutionalized racism. Islam, we have racist, the vast majority of us are racist. But Islam doesn't condone it. Islam doesn't endorse it. Someone may sit there and say, Oh, you became a Muslim. Because of color. Yeah, that's the environment I came from. We did not get caught in their neighborhood. And they better not get caught in our neighborhood. That's what we grew up on. And that's why I find it amazing that as Muslims are always on the defensive, when these people start talking about democracy, and you guys are backwards, and this lamb is terrorism, but you're talking about

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

what are you talking about?

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

Point is racism is a problem.

00:16:30--> 00:16:42

It is a problem. But in our Deen al Islam dealt with it clearly. All I want to do here today is from the book of Allah, talk to you brothers about how the Quran that said

00:16:44--> 00:16:56

we're not even going to deal with the Sunnah. We're not even going to deal with the prophets of Allah while he was setting them in the minima. One of the many examples of how he dealt with racism, leaving no doubt

00:16:57--> 00:17:31

so much you can talk about his black history month in the UK, every single Friday can be about this issue and how you can deal with it islamically so I repeat before we begin, number one, today we're talking about how al Islam how the Quran dealt with racism, anyone is going to deal with a fraction of that. That's all we're going to deal with how the Quran not the Sunnah not Prophet Mohammed Salah sent him in his mama, but the more I ledger of the Quran, how the Quran dealt with this

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

first iron,

00:17:34--> 00:18:23

ashy and I want to remind you of something the statement of Allah, a fella get the broom and Quran. Allah polu been Lubin a fellow How do they not consider and contemplate the Quran? Or do they have locks on their hearts? If you brothers, all of us will learn in this Quran, memorization techy tafsir as Babel knows all these things that are going on in the world, we'll be able to deal with it better. But we're detached and disconnected from the Quran. I said the majority of us are racist, except the one that Allah gave them Esma Rama and I say as well, the majority of us are negligent as it relates to the Quran.

00:18:25--> 00:18:47

If you said when is the last time you read the Quran, he doesn't know. He has to think about it. Because that's the average situation I'm not putting you down. Prophet Mohammed said an authentic hadith sallallahu Sallam to his companions and co milliohm fees man kefir Rama II Talia Kota II Men taraka Russia ma O'Meara b e Hauer

00:18:48--> 00:18:57

was a yet is a man kefir hota he Kalia Lama he many stamps a cabbie grocery My only a biggie nyjah

00:18:58--> 00:19:45

he said Abubakar mouth man it you companions, you people are living in a time there are a lot of lemme memorize this hadith. The Companions will live in a time there are a lot of Allah Ma and Rasool Allah is the Imam of the Rama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Morocco and Abu Bakr is a scholar If man is Allah Amara is a scholar of man, Ali, Abdullah Abdullah bass, even Omar Isha, they are scholars. You don't know your religion, you go to any one of them. You guys, you people living in a time many are not and only a few people talking about it. He said anybody who abandons a 10th of his religion at that time, you're going to go straight during the time of the companions. He said, Well

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

there's gonna come a time when there's going to be many people speaking. Everybody has something to say comments everybody has a point of view, everybody Corona haraam. Hello, everybody got something to say. Now, everybody

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Men, women, children, white, black, Catholic, educated, not educated, he can't even read and write.

00:20:07--> 00:20:17

If the letter B, the letter B hit him on his head, he doesn't know that's the letter B, because you can't read it, but he's out there talking about coronas not real.

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

You're going to come a time, many people speaking, and there are going to be only a few scholars. He said, anyone who holds on to a 10th of his religion at that time, will be guided. So if you do a little bit at this time, a little we aim when I read in the Koran, doing that time, it was really blameworthy during this time is the nature of the situation. So we have to take it easy with people. We have to take it easy with each other. I don't want to sit here and come off and continue and be condescending. None of you. None of us do. Not I don't mean it that way. I mean in a way to encourage you do more. connect yourself to the book.

00:21:02--> 00:21:43

connect yourself to the Quran. reading the Quran memorizing the Quran tedric Did you guys hear the Imam reading so after the chat tonight You heard him? How was his recitation? His recitation like that brother said was Masha Allah. You stand behind and you say my I don't know what he's saying. But that Quran is beautiful. I'm happy to be a Muslim and a joker start crying. He doesn't even know what he's saying. But that's the Konami of Allah. So some of those some of those non Muslims of Quraysh I said I became a Muslim because of racism was dealt with in the Quran. Someone says why it wasn't because of a lotto he? No it wasn't. The man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said

00:21:43--> 00:22:06

Mohammed, I'm about to ask you a question I'm gonna be tough with you. So forgive me, just be tough. Be patient. He said, Ah, love America, we have a will do that Allah order you and commend you to do this. We'll do this in your religion before you pray and all that stuff. Rasool Allah says, Allah whom I know Yes, Allah told me to do that. The man accepted Islam.

00:22:08--> 00:22:20

Because he knew that the will bow of Islam was different than what courageously Arabs were doing. And it appealed to him, he became a Muslim. So people become muslims for different reasons. She married her husband,

00:22:21--> 00:22:27

as a Christian as a Jew, and she saw the goodness from him. So she became a Muslim.

00:22:28--> 00:23:02

He is a non Muslim, and he wants to marry the girl, not like we find in many countries, like in West Africa, and I want to name countries. People are born and raised in Islam, and the Muslim girl gets married to a non Muslim, she's she remains a Muslim. And he's remained in the non Muslim not that stuff. It's a calf here man is attracted to a woman he wants that woman because of her, her love because of her the way she is. She says, Okay, I'll marry you nice guy. But you have to say that he died alone practices religion, nothing wrong with that.

00:23:03--> 00:23:17

Nothing is wrong with that. As for hooking up with the girl hooking up with the girl, and you just being a player tripping not, you're not helping her to become a Muslim. You help her to hate Islam and Muslims.

00:23:19--> 00:23:49

out there the Quran, deal with racism, many issues. Number one, there's a verse of the Quran and this is important I start with this for my African American brothers. So as well as some people here who go overboard with this Afro centrism to the point where they listen to these people from the Hebrews, you know those Hebrews, you know, I'm talking about those Hebrews. They're in New York, they're in speaker's corner, and we listen people listen to them and try to get knowledge from these people.

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

Allies are mentioned in the Quran in

00:23:53--> 00:24:44

a manner to Allah subhana wa t well out of the well g bell for a beaming, Munna was fructan. Amina Mohammed Al insana, no Kana volumi, Jo hula. Verily, Allah presented the Amana to the heavens and the earth and the mountains to carry the responsibility of the man. But the heavens and the earth in the mountains was afraid they were afraid of carrying the manner. So they say no, Allah said and then mankind took responsibility for the Atlanta. Verily mankind is very oppressive and very ignorant. We're going to come back to that inshallah. The meaning of the Amana is, Allah offered the opportunity to the heavens and the earth in the mountains to be responsible for a tawheed

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

maintaining it, protecting it, spreading it

00:24:48--> 00:24:55

for the religion, but they say this heavy responsibility not we don't want to do that. Mankind took it.

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

Now what's the point here?

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Black people at one time in history were on the top.

00:25:05--> 00:25:28

Black people were on top. They were great civilizations of black people right? In Egypt for owning all those people, Hammurabi, all those people, they won the top. And instead of taking care of the manner of spreading tawheed and spreading the religion, they may shift in the inquiry ship and they will press people. For now in the press, Benny Surat, Al.

00:25:30--> 00:25:58

And now the cycle has changed. And now white people are on top. They've been on top since we've been alive. We come in this era, and we think everything right is white. No black people on top there was a civilization of black people on top, black people lost the ball. And now their children and descendants are on the bottom and it went the other way. And I'm here to say white people as well have dropped the ball.

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

So as a black person don't think

00:26:04--> 00:26:12

you've always been at the bottom of the totem pole. No, we Amana was dropped the amount of toe heat.

00:26:13--> 00:26:56

So that ayat of the Quran is a clear indication that it is a clear indication that as Allah tala has established in the Quran, his prophets Allah Allah, he was sending an authentic Sunnah command to Deen to Dan, I don't say that as a hadith so we can Eve but it's true, as you do is going to be done unto you. As you do, if your press your turn is coming around, you will press something when somebody right now your wife, your turn is coming around, your daughter's going to marry somebody who's going to oppress her. And Allah knows best come out to Dean to Dan scepter, if you want rejected if you want, that's the dean.

00:26:57--> 00:27:21

So black people drop the ball. So this stuff about black people are inherently special in good. I don't accept that. Black people were the first civilization because we found the oldest bones and Ethiopia, therefore were the best. Our melanin you can get white, you can get black from white you only get what I don't accept none of that. None of it.

00:27:24--> 00:27:54

The second Ayat of the Quran dealing with racism. And this is important, as from Surah Al fujihara Listen, honey, you got to go back and try to work on sort of telco gerat if you're a person who can memorize as for the new Muslims, and you're just dealing with and you're dealing with Jews, I'm not stay there, keep struggling do your thing. But if you can memorize, we have to go back memorize Jews rememorize, sort of Allahu gerat and if you can memorize, still study it.

00:27:55--> 00:28:45

It's an idea that talks about governing ourselves in society, how to be with each other, the rights of the Muslims, and I'm telling you this surah on a daily basis, we compromise this on a daily basis. So Allah revealed this saurez the surah and it has a lot of do's and don'ts as it relates to the community how to treat each other. Now listen. LFO gerat is called an gerat because there was a small apartments that Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, his wives used to live in those apartments and they were connected to the masjid very small. elfo gerat Allah COVID Now let's say how does Ellis Lam the Quran deal with racism? sotar gerat how circle Girard has 18 verses in it. Listen to

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

this, the first

00:28:49--> 00:29:09

few verses, not the first five, but I want to bring this to your attention. There are five verses that come. The first verse says, Yeah, you are levena Amanullah to Kadima Albania de la he was who he was to LA oh you who believe? Yeah, are you la Vina amanu

00:29:11--> 00:29:25

Oh you who believe don't put yourselves before line is messenger Allah said do this Don't say no, I'm not going to do that. Allah said don't do innovation. Mommy said don't do innovation say now I'm gonna do innovation the moment I'm gonna do it I don't care what you say.

00:29:27--> 00:29:29

Don't put yourselves before line is messenger.

00:29:32--> 00:29:47

The next is a Yeah, a U haul levena Aminu lateral Ferro swatter comfo assaulting nebby Oh you believe oh you believe Don't raise your voices above the voice of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

respect him. So the companions used to lower the voice in his presence out of respect. Now, you and I are supposed to do that with our mothers and our fathers.

00:30:00--> 00:30:17

To talk to your mother and your father would allow voice. Don't talk to the professor, your teacher with a loud voice. The teacher, the chef, the man who teaches you don't talk to him in a disrespectful way. Oh, the people you see walking in the street, Muslim, non Muslim, white, black. Don't talk to them loud and crazy.

00:30:18--> 00:30:25

Don't raise your voice to people. My daughter wants to get married. Don't raise your voice to your husband strong with you.

00:30:27--> 00:30:38

That doesn't mean I support oppression or you don't have something to say. That's not to say your parents want to force you to marry, you have nothing to say. I will sommerset keep my voice down. I didn't tell you that.

00:30:40--> 00:31:26

You don't want to marry the one that forced you to marry let them know. But with respect like Ebrahim was given GABA to his father. And he kept saying Guy abota Oh, my beloved father, oh, my respect the father and his father was tripping. Giving them a hard time. That's the second iron. Third iron is not in sequential order. But the iron said yeah, you have levena amanu in a confessor can be never in for debate. You're new. Or you believe if an evil person comes to you with some news about whatever ascertain as to what's reality. Don't just believe everything everybody seems said to you about somebody especially when it's negative. Oh, he stole something. Oh, he's this Oh, she's

00:31:26--> 00:31:30

that. Oh, he did that. Oh, he's an innovator. Oh, he's a Catholic. No.

00:31:32--> 00:31:33

The fourth iron

00:31:34--> 00:31:52

and then I told you is not 1234 the fourth iron allow Todd I mentioned Yeah, you want to levena Avenue. ly Yes, her comb and comb are saying your cool new hire men. Oh, you will believe Let not a group of you ridicule another group.

00:31:54--> 00:32:41

And don't let the women ridicule another group of women. It may be that the group that's being ridiculed is better than the one that's doing the ridiculing. So we have that in our culture. Someone comes and he's from a different ethnic group or she is not you know, she's not plugged into the group. So she comes in she's like an outsider. And people don't treat her well. She's the divorced wife of a man who his new wife is down with the group and her relatives. So now the ex wife comes to their eat or whatever. And people are laughing at her making faces pulling faces and ridiculing her that's what this is says Don't do that to people

00:32:43--> 00:32:46

so that's the fourth one the fifth one

00:32:49--> 00:33:28

allies we just said the fifth one yeah you have levena Amman which tiny boo kathira Minh oven in Nevada FM Hey you believers oh you who believe avoid speculating because a lot of some of that speculation is a sin if you don't know for sure don't say this that cuz you're gonna be wrong most of the time. Those five I'd say yeah are you are living the avenue. The next is said that talked about where we've come from race and color. Yeah, a un nice in color law coming decades.

00:33:30--> 00:33:58

Which are now CompTIA Ruben wakaba de la la Chroma commune de la he at Parker. Oh, mankind. Not Yeah, you ready? nominal. Oh mankind. We created you from a single man and from a single woman. And we made you nations and tribes so that you can get to know each other. Not to despise each other. The best of you is the one who has the most taqwa.

00:33:59--> 00:34:50

So when it came to issues of how we deal with each other, yeah, you were living at home and when it came to the issue of what's the source, where do we come from? The is Sega even nice. What is Yeah, you are nice. The Quran is saying, Hey Muslim, hey, Jew, hey, Christian, Sikh, Hindu, white, black, tall, short, rich, poor. All of you. Your sources the same. Adam and his wife. However, the best of you is not the one in the color. Not that not the one with the money. Not that. Not the one from that truck. Not that the best of you is determined by a man. A taqwa. I'm not gonna say as a Muslim, I'm equal. We're equal. We got to walk around not not equal. We're not equal. La slann Yalla. When

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

are you? slam is uppermost.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

So what makes people better than other people in the den? What makes them better is the email

00:35:00--> 00:35:31

At tbwa good deeds. So the Prophet told the people some Allah when he was sending an Allah Allah young guru era surah Kuma era and windy Kuma Lakin Allah, young guru era polu become Isla armonico. Allah doesn't look at your colors. He doesn't look at how much money you have. Allow looks at your hearts. What was your intent? What were you trying to do? Was your intent good or not? And he looks at your actions. That's what determines who's good and who's bad.

00:35:32--> 00:36:16

That's what determines who's good and who's bad. So in this is this surah. When it came to this, it shows people are equal in terms of their color. Now listen, what's the meaning of that? effectively, we can say a lot, but we got to move on. Part of the meaning of that one is the Jew, the Christian, the Muslim, the Jew, the Christian, the city, the handle the agnostic, the atheists, we are living in society. Everybody has a right, everybody to live in a good community. In America, African Americans, there is systemic. There is something going on to keep us down.

00:36:17--> 00:36:32

You can buy a house is difficult to get a house, whether it's by alone, or other than that, so you have generational poverty like they have in the UK. Asians, where we come from your education, our education is the worst

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

because of the demographics of where we come from.

00:36:38--> 00:37:03

No, it's not supposed to be like that. When we go to court, all of us Muslim, Christian Jew, we're supposed to be equal in front of the law. And America they have and most courthouses, they have a statue on side with a lady sitting and she's holding the scale and she has a blindfold over her eyes. She's supposed to be justice. And justice is supposed to be blind. That Kevin

00:37:05--> 00:37:26

Why did African Americans clap and support old Jay when they found him not guilty? Oh, Jay Simpson has nothing to do with us nothing. Michael Jordan has nothing to do with us. The people were saying Michael Jordan Come on man use your use your your your your celebrity to help us to help our politicians who are going to help Africa. He said look

00:37:28--> 00:37:36

white people are Democrats and Republicans too. I just want my sneakers man just buy my sneakers. He doesn't kills for he doesn't. He's won money.

00:37:38--> 00:37:55

Those people with celebrity are not like Colin Kaepernick, who gave up a large gave up money to stand up for something and even better than him. They're not like Muhammad Ali. A Muslim who gave up stuff

00:37:56--> 00:38:20

that doesn't mean I couldn't don't boxing and all that. The point is the man gave up stuff. So now you go to the courthouse, and I always tell you this as soon as I walk in the door, they see my color one strike against me. You guys know baseball, you know baseball, three strikes you're out. You heard that before. If you missed that ball three times you out.

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

I go in there my color one strike.

00:38:25--> 00:38:30

What's your name? You have a Muslim name. I may do

00:38:31--> 00:38:43

I may do whatever. Naveed whatever Muslim name two strikes. Now if you have a Muslim Lang like Oussama Abu Salah, you got three strikes already. You out you done.

00:38:44--> 00:38:54

And then the judge comes in. And then the person in the court says All rise out of respect for the judge. Everybody stands up out of respect for the judge.

00:38:55--> 00:39:18

But one of our youngsters says I'm not gonna say right here. They just say why are you not why you didn't rise? Well, Judge, he didn't call him your honor. Well judge, the companions loved Prophet Mohammed, so much sallallahu Sallam that they said we loved him more than everybody and when he used to come in, we didn't stand up for him. I'm not standing up for you judge.

00:39:20--> 00:39:33

No, you can't get down like that. The judge? You're not calling me Your Honor. Why you're not calling me Your Honor. Our Prophet Muhammad said our religion if you say to him when I forget the guys say you, you destroy the religion.

00:39:35--> 00:39:50

So when the judge he has all of that he's gonna say, and you're only there because you have a ticket, a driving ticket. That's what you in court for. The judge gonna say after all of that. Give them 350 years under the court, under the jail.

00:39:52--> 00:39:57

Under the jail, you guys are laughing, man. It's reality where I come from

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

So the point here and cleaning the showerhead here is the ayat. Yeah you have nice Hey you people, you know Muslims who want to look into Islam, you want to judge our religion. The issue of racism has been dealt with. You know, Muslims are just like us when it comes to justice when it comes to where you live when it comes to your quality of life. Now I want to ask you again. Is there justice my daughter in America hafsa 22 years old, 2122 years old, getting her degree PhD in America, she drives hafsa has a broken taillight. hafsa accidentally makes a right turn on red. She's not supposed to do it on this day or this street. My daughter hops it in totally stopped at the stop

00:40:45--> 00:40:58

sign. She went through the red light trying to get it before turn red. The police pull her over. My daughter hafsa is prone to getting shot in her face right then and there.

00:40:59--> 00:41:44

When the police man comes to deal with her, he has a mentality that she's subhuman, that she's lesser than him. And he's a paramilitary soldier, the best my daughter, my daughter doesn't have, you know, gold in her two tattoos that she doesn't have that she's a respectable looking girl with hijab. But because of her color, he goes up to her with a different understanding that he'll go up to white people. And it's not fear, or all cops like that, or Popo like that. But it's like that in America and that's why you guys have not seen Not a single situation where white kid was killed like were killed.

00:41:47--> 00:41:59

So that's the second iron, another iron. How did the Quran deal with racism and gotta pay attention? inshallah I'm gonna finish this real soon I'm coming back and ask you questions. In sha Allah.

00:42:00--> 00:42:06

You're going to be first because I haven't seen you in a long time inshallah. Welcome back and no, take that off. I don't want you to get nervous in

00:42:09--> 00:42:09


00:42:10--> 00:42:46

hotpot to hija. Hood to hijack you know on Friday in Al Hamdulillah medu when studying when rasulillah used to say that every Friday some Lola Why do you study them every Friday before the hookah? When he marry you married he will say who to hire for the raid hopper to hija he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if something happened he will say below make the event is not salaat time make the event make the people come that people come when they gather in Alhamdulillah II do hospital hygiene listen.

00:42:47--> 00:42:58

And hood Patil hajah. They are three is that correct? The first is is Yeah, you have levena Iman Taku la haka, Ducati.

00:43:00--> 00:43:04

Illa en todo Muslim on.

00:43:05--> 00:43:23

Yeah, you're letting me know. The second is, yeah, a new one. is a takuro Bakula? The halaqa comin F sin wahiduddin wirkkala. Carmen has Oh jaha we're Bethlehem in Houma, rejoining kefir and when is

00:43:24--> 00:43:50

the second is, is talking about where we come from. And what does it say? Oh, mankind. Jew, Muslim, Jew, Christian. Yeah, you are nice. Feel your Lord, fill your Lord who created you from a single soul Adam and created from that soul has made how and spread out from these to countless men and women. Countless men and women.

00:43:51--> 00:44:15

And then the third is Yeah, you have levena tabula will kulu Colin sadita Oh you believe say the word right to the point be straight, say the word. And Allah forgive you and so forth. So on. So the point here is, again, when it's mentioned about where we come from, yeah, you are nice. Now listen to this.

00:44:16--> 00:44:38

Rasul Allah Mecca sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he arrived in Medina, he was given the hook back every single year for 10 years. every single week. Nora D. every single week on Friday, people stop what they're doing. They can't wait to jump to hear what he has to say. Every Friday he says this

00:44:39--> 00:44:54

over and over and over and over and over and over. Look at these young brothers they grow up in the masjid and they hear that in a set if you miss Jade for an example, the mom sticks with that tenaciously. Something that I love about a Czech ideal hedeby

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

you see the majority of his lessons, whatever is caught

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

But then hajer acts them yeah, share why you do that. He said we got to spread this amongst the people.

00:45:07--> 00:45:21

So the kid grows up the companion hearing that over and over and over 10 years every Friday all his life. And then there's your kicker and then there's the walima and then there's the Mika and then on and on then there's election day.

00:45:22--> 00:45:33

And the companions had knowledge. So when it came to this, they mentioned it over and over. And you know, to croc that's repetition. Tuck rod means repetition.

00:45:34--> 00:45:46

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim is iron from every surah except al Bara Surah tober how many is in Allah, Allah colletion qadeer over and over the same thing over and over.

00:45:47--> 00:45:52

To show emphasis is important. Don't forget it. Don't sleep on it.

00:45:53--> 00:46:00

Again, I say a fella yet the Brunello Quran, Allah colourbond. UK follow her.

00:46:02--> 00:46:05

And I'm telling you a whiny if we had

00:46:07--> 00:46:08

put the time in.

00:46:09--> 00:46:24

And we have someone who was good at to see of the Quran as students of knowledge, they will be no time to be wasted in with this can emphatic that, you know we here and many of us, most of us, most of us are put into the emphatic.

00:46:26--> 00:47:09

So the fact that the Prophet said this over and over, is the Quran dealing with racism. Yeah, even as a Muslim Jew, all of you people come from the same source. And that's Adam. And that's his wife, how salewa told why he was Santa Monica. Now concerning this is really important. As I mentioned, when you go to the court, when you go to the court, Justice should be blind. Look at what happened with the prophet and many examples. I just give you one, and they are meaning his way. Because we want to just focus on the Quran. You go to the court as an African American, I should be equal man to the white guy, the one who has money, the one whose father's a minister that we should be, you go

00:47:09--> 00:47:25

to Africa, you go to Pakistan, you know, you can kill someone, you can kill someone in Africa. You can kill someone and take the life in Pakistan. And if you have chatter, you pay and you get off

00:47:27--> 00:47:28

with the justice in that,

00:47:29--> 00:48:09

because he has money and you don't, because he comes from this tribe and you're from the other tribe. And I'm not putting Pakistan down Africa. That's how it is. Right here is the same way. Right here. Trump, he led so many criminals off as the president gave him presidential pardons criminals. And then the young African American who killed someone at the age of 1213. He's young, dumb, inexperience got caught out here got caught up, got caught out gunned him in his crew, where we come from bad ghetto back, this deck is this the deck is stacked against them.

00:48:10--> 00:48:18

He's going to jail because the deck is stacked against them. So how many of us have been in a prison cell? How many?

00:48:19--> 00:48:35

How many ages Somalis have been in prison cells? Because the deck is stacked against us. That doesn't mean we lean on this crutch. This system this system, the white man. And I'm not saying that.

00:48:36--> 00:48:53

We owe some of the responsibility. And his problem permeates throughout Europe is in France, the Algerians in France, Africans in France, same thing. France is a racist country. If you didn't know now, you know,

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


00:48:57--> 00:49:34

it's not the same. Look at what happened with Prophet Muhammad there was a rich lady or lady from a tribe of Quraysh benimar kozun. She had power tried. She stole something. They say now we can the hand get cut off no way that reflect negatively on us. If our tribes woman got a hand cut off, they said someone got to go talk to the Prophet, intercede on behalf. yada Sula, don't cut a hand off don't cut the hand off. So I became angry, called the people. He said to the people in them I highly recommend Kanika block and Kanu is a set of famous Sharif turaco

00:49:36--> 00:49:45

with a set of FEMA bereave accom. One he had way more Hilo in the fall team at Binta Mohammedan circuit, the Qatar two.

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

He said the people came before you I know keytab demonstrate. They will destroy they left the religion Why? Because when it came to ruling and judging

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

If a rich powerful person stole they will let him go.

00:50:05--> 00:50:30

But if a poor Miskin stole, they will cut his hand off or put the lawn put the book on him. throw the book at him. He said I swear by Allah, a fathima my daughter in Fatima stole something. I'll cut a hand off. And what does it mean I could have hand off? You know, I'll disfigure her to get your hand cut off your disfigured

00:50:31--> 00:50:35

Yes, just a sheet of Ellis lamb in this Allah Shadi

00:50:37--> 00:51:06

Allah stern and punishment and I don't mean this by law does that I'm saying stern. So this person stole something at the nerve and the audacity to take someone else's property his Muslim Brothers property this something, Mr. propio Okay, we're going to disfigure you for what you did. But it has to be a certain amount and silver not if you take a piece of paper. He said I would do that to my own daughter. You think he's gonna hesitate doing that to you? You will you are me.

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

And why did he say his daughter Fatima? Because she was the youngest and I don't know a man who is not extraordinarily connected to his bent we love our sons my man shave is my dude shave his demand if you didn't know now you know, but the love and the affection I have for my daughters is different man my daughter's anybody got daughters here anybody daughters? You know what I'm talking about writing for what I'm talking about right?

00:51:39--> 00:51:45

So that is the justice of Ellis lamb. Let's go to the next one. We almost done a lot.

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

The next one is the issue of a police a police

00:51:53--> 00:52:21

concerning the issue of a police and I have to take this back a little bit because no I'm not gonna we're gonna leave it. You know in our religion we have been commanded not to be like a police. Don't be like he please. If something has been described in the Quran as soon as something that a breeze does for you to do it is a major sin. It's one way you know something is a major sin.

00:52:22--> 00:52:24

That he blisters that thing.

00:52:26--> 00:52:55

We've been prohibited from resembling kofod mentorship by becoming for minimum anybody who resembles the people in front of them. So you can't resemble non Muslims and things that they're picual the procurement known for you can't be like animals don't pray like the dog. Don't pre like the chicken the word sound is the sound of the as the donkey the brain of the as so many I hurry Don't be like the animals. Don't be like a breeze.

00:52:57--> 00:52:58

Don't be like he please.

00:52:59--> 00:53:09

One of the is of the Quran the story is the story of he blease. He was the first racist. A police was the first racist and his story comes to us.

00:53:11--> 00:53:13

So you can't be like a police.

00:53:14--> 00:53:19

Take with your left. Give with your left eat with your left drink with your left he blease

00:53:21--> 00:53:33

he said in the Quran. subhana wa Taala in moobot Vereen Kanu one shell theme those who waste are the brothers of the devil? A police

00:53:35--> 00:53:37

can you take shaytaan as your brother

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

so the man gets into the shower and he's taking a shower for an hour and two hours I was talking about our daughters you know women they have a nature with them beautify themselves you know that mirror thing you know they always make you late

00:53:55--> 00:54:03

I don't want to be stereotypical man but I just want to take a census here How many of you your wives always make you late? How many of you that's the case

00:54:05--> 00:54:12

some people just scared man he got his wives got him shook and it can't even see the situation.

00:54:13--> 00:54:17

My daughter's make me late. Family make us late.

00:54:18--> 00:54:23

Is something like that? Not all the time. Not all the time can't be stereotypical like that.

00:54:24--> 00:54:26

He please.

00:54:27--> 00:54:42

Allies were just mentioning that I had many many I will call it a breeze college. He believes my man I can test you on the mock up to be there. Yeah, he believes what prevented you from bowing down to the one I created with my two hands.

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

Two hands. Allah has two hands and both of his hands are right hands. Don't put your hand up and say right hands and a lot too right hands like this. No, Allah has to write hands that be fit His Majesty is not for you and me to try to figure it out. The eye

00:55:00--> 00:55:21

I said, What prevented you from bowing down to the one I created with my own two hands. And another part of the I added the Quran he bleeds sad, calm, collected even now to maintain and in bow down to him because you created me from fire. And you created him from dirt. I'm better than him and a fireman.

00:55:23--> 00:55:26

I'm better than him. I'm better than him because I'm white.

00:55:27--> 00:55:54

And I'm telling you guys listen to what I'm telling you, I hope I don't come across as a as a racist like that. I'm just saying how it is. But I want to come down because I don't want my words to get lost in translation and people's eyes passionate, he's a racist. In America, in America in the 60s 50s, they did not allow black people, my people to jump into the pools with them, because they thought dirt would come off of us.

00:55:55--> 00:56:18

They wouldn't allow us to drink from the same water fountain, they were separated. You can't ride on the same bus, we have to go on the back of the bus. in the courtroom. Justice is blind. We had to go up on the rafters while they sat down there. And they had fans and all that we up around the rafters. They used to believe that my people had tails, tails.

00:56:20--> 00:56:30

We come from monkeys. Even to this day, they call a few monkey. These carriers these carriers, they'll stop you if you African American and slap you some of them

00:56:32--> 00:56:48

get into something and slap you. And that's why it's crazy that some of our brothers from Africa, they come here and Africans have problems with Jamaicans and Jamaicans have problems African. So the African comes here, not all of them, not all of them, and he thinks he's better than the afro Caribbean person.

00:56:52--> 00:57:06

And then something happens to him and he slipped into reality. You also look inward to many of the people and then they get shocked into reality. It's crazy. Jamaicans having problems with Somalis.

00:57:08--> 00:57:15

Well you're here is not like our hair, your skin we talking about. We're very close to each other.

00:57:17--> 00:57:29

To as it relates to a blease allow Tyler has prohibited us from being like him, who in his right mind wants to be like the devil who, as soon as we hear that we don't want to be like the devil.

00:57:31--> 00:57:50

So Eliza Joe told Adam, or commanded a police to bow down to Adam why, as we mentioned before, from the hikma that Allah created for things with his own two hands, only four things. He created Nora Dean, what did the law create with his own two hands?

00:57:51--> 00:57:53

He created Adam.

00:57:54--> 00:58:04

He created the auto show the autos are rock man, a lot of * stoah Allah has over the Irish in a way that be fish's majesty. And what else?

00:58:05--> 00:58:43

He created the pin, the pin that read that wrote everything. Part of your Eman and the cutter the cutter is that everything is written. And everything is in a book. It's already written. So in the isawa meraj, when the Prophet was taken from Mecca sallallahu Sallam to bake the muck this he pray with all the prophets in the messengers. And then he went up to the first heaven seven area all the way up to the seventh heaven. He said when I got to the center of Montana when I got way out there in jabril, let me go by myself. He said I can't go beyond this point. He said when I went, I can hear the pink

00:58:44--> 00:58:44


00:58:48--> 00:58:49

What's the fourth thing?

00:58:51--> 00:59:12

Yes, Allah created the agenda for things. Allah created the auto show with his own two hands. A lot created Jenna with his own two hands. A lot created the pin with his own two hands. A lot created items. So the lotto lady was cinema whiny with his own two hands. Everything else he said code

00:59:13--> 00:59:22

for your Khun B and it came into existence. So when a lot of you please bow down to Adam, it's not about what you created from what he created from

00:59:24--> 00:59:41

I'm white I'm better than you. I'm from this tribe. You're from that tribe. And we all have this stuff no matter where you come from. All of us had this stuff. Everybody here we have this second thing about this issue and we move on to the last point Bismillah listen whiney.

00:59:42--> 00:59:48

rasulillah told the racist as it relates to all of this. Call us Allah what he was suddenly namaha

00:59:50--> 00:59:54

calaca ademar min kapetan kobada hamin Jimmy and

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

Vijay benu Adam Allah cut them out for me

01:00:00--> 01:00:03

As well as what we're bringing

01:00:04--> 01:00:25

women home and husband was Sal ouabain radica woman whom I'll share beef with you we're being vatika Listen, you three in the corner call you guys three to heartway we should name son Sue haber. And you man you You two are brothers.

01:00:29--> 01:00:30

This Heidi Listen,

01:00:31--> 01:01:02

Allah created Adam from all of the dirt in the earth. Every kind of dirt, every texture every color of dirt in the earth. White Sand, yellow sand, red sand, brown sand, black sand, and all the shades between that the Hadid said I like to create an add them from a cup. A cup that is like this. I'm not saying Allah cup damn Shawn with a cup there is a cup dies when you take something like this.

01:01:04--> 01:01:32

To Allah created Adam, a cup from all of the different textures and colors of dirt in the earth. So Adams children came out. I mark an S word othmer here doesn't mean read. Atma here means white. That's why the Prophet used to call Isha sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who may raw because she was white light is not read here.

01:01:34--> 01:01:49

And there is even some historians in Ellis Lamb who have argued very seriously that most of the companions were of dark complexion anyway but we're not going to get into that no time for that discussion.

01:01:51--> 01:01:56

Allah created Adam from one cup data from all of the different

01:01:57--> 01:02:38

types of Earth and that's why Adams children some of them come out white and some come out black and every color between them that represents them. This brother got his color is not exactly like his you it's not like his different different different. So when I see a person from Senegal, when I see a person from the Gambia and they are extra extra crispy and black you know what I say my shala black is beautiful baby that's what I say. But I can say that because I'm African American I don't have a problem with black you know James Brown used to say that say it loud. You guys know the rest?

01:02:39--> 01:02:47

You don't know the rest is England. That's why I feel like I'm a fish out of water some time. They don't even know James Brown. What he said, is that right?

01:02:48--> 01:02:49

Adams children

01:02:51--> 01:02:53

say a lot. I'm black and I'm proud.

01:02:55--> 01:02:56

Are you serious?

01:02:57--> 01:02:59

I'm in the UK man. What can I say?

01:03:03--> 01:03:11

Anyway, white and black and everything in between. There are some people who despise very dark people.

01:03:13--> 01:03:24

And look, in Afro Caribbean culture, African American culture, Pakistani culture. Do you know skin bleaching is a billion dollar industry

01:03:25--> 01:03:37

that people pay money to bleach their skins. Where I come from the lighter you are, the more attractive you are. A man tries to marry a girl nice hair. Too black, he's too dark.

01:03:38--> 01:03:40

Allah created either between that

01:03:42--> 01:03:49

and he went on to say, and some of his children come out easy to get along with and difficult to get along with.

01:03:51--> 01:04:00

And then he said in some of his people, some of his children are beef and some beef is filthy dirty. do crazy thing molest kids.

01:04:01--> 01:04:02

molest kids.

01:04:03--> 01:04:06

He gets gratification from dogs and animals.

01:04:09--> 01:04:12

Beef steals from the masjid.

01:04:17--> 01:04:51

So as similar to that Heidi incited Bahati and Ottawa who jeu de mujer, nada, Mata RF Amina telefax ma Tanaka Rahman na, Ted ephah. The souls of the people are like train soldiers when it comes together. Some souls they get along, and some souls they just clash. I just want to before we finish very quickly, do any of you have an experience where you know somebody, no matter what you just always clashing with them, do anybody you have that situation?

01:04:52--> 01:04:58

No matter what, it's just clashing. Some of us get married to people like that.

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

Everything is a class. She don't understand me and I don't understand her.

01:05:06--> 01:05:08

So you got to get a divorce because this thing working.

01:05:10--> 01:05:17

It could be her mother. It could be a father could be a brother, it could be your boss, it could be a co worker. It could be the bus driver.

01:05:19--> 01:05:21

Everything about you you a problem.

01:05:22--> 01:05:24

Or you can be the problem.

01:05:26--> 01:06:04

Because that's how Adams children are. And then there's that person who is easy, man. And that's why young brothers and Shall I take your time trying to get married? Because you want to marry your soulmate? your soulmate. As soon as you come to the door, and your wife sees you. She knows how to deal with that situation. She said dego my man right there. He looks like he's in a playful mood. He doesn't look playful today. He looks tired. He looks hungry. bagel my man right there. He looks like he got the sword in his hand. Let me some people don't like them. I like that.

01:06:06--> 01:06:07

They not like that.

01:06:09--> 01:06:22

So how did the Quran deal with racism, telling us the constant story of Adam many plays in the Quran, giving us more information. So listen, before we forget, before we finish inshallah, before we finish.

01:06:24--> 01:06:29

We're different colors because the hikma of Allah and I'm really I'm really

01:06:32--> 01:07:22

disgusted by people of color, who between themselves have this inferiority complex. So we look at each other, as if we're better than them. But we look at people who are white as being inferior to them. There was a person who wanted to have a young brother I'm close to the family wanted to marry into his Afro Caribbean revert young brother ticks all the boxes, nice Mojave, good o'clock at the intelligent Good job. Anybody would want this boy for the istep for the son in law, but he started like that girl. So from the culture, he has to take an elder Mother Father, that's the culture called Can you go Yeah, go come on and scope. The girls brothers were disrespectful to him and to

01:07:22--> 01:07:46

me, and I saw it right away. And I had to give him a piece of my mind because they were younger than me. He didn't even try to hide it. Just have lunch and you know, play it off. Like you have a chance he didn't even try to hide his contempt for us. And I told him how I felt. And the thing that really blew my mind was he was darker than us.

01:07:48--> 01:07:53

He was an Asian background. He was darker than us.

01:07:55--> 01:08:01

And when you go to Saudi Arabia and you go to Kuwait and you go to Qatar, they look down on him.

01:08:04--> 01:08:07

And now in the UK, he looks down on us.

01:08:09--> 01:08:14

And then we look down at something's wrong. That's a belief man. That shape on

01:08:16--> 01:08:32

another issue is whining Allah mentioned is sort of to Rome How did the Quran deal with this sort of to Rome? Allah mentioned women I it he helped to sama wa t while out they were delightful lady when the har woman I it helped Osama why it went out what the law

01:08:33--> 01:08:34

was the law for

01:08:36--> 01:08:39

sanity come in Nevada, I

01:08:40--> 01:08:40


01:08:42--> 01:08:52

and from the Ayat of Allah is the creation of the heavens and the earth, they prove that there is and

01:08:53--> 01:09:10

and from his Ayad as well, is the differences in your colors and your language that's an eye yet not something for you to be arrogant about verbally and that is a sign for those who know with knowledge. Do you guys know that man?

01:09:13--> 01:09:19

Wow, what's his name? That white guy he does all of those programs about animals and stuff like that. With Ember, what's his name?

01:09:22--> 01:09:45

David, David Attenborough. May Allah guide him to slam See, I mean, may Allah guide I meant to slam. I like that guy. I like his personality. And he is a person who really loves the creation and animals, climate change all that stuff. And his programs will blow your socks off.

01:09:47--> 01:09:59

sit and watch those programs, with your children, your family, but look, with all of what he's seen. With the plant life with the animals, the insects, he didn't accept this lamb

01:10:00--> 01:10:11

main unit the Lahu be hierarchy photography D. Allah didn't give him understanding the lighting guidance because if Allah doesn't guide you not gonna be guided. So we make do our law guy. What's his name?

01:10:13--> 01:10:15

Guy Adam burrow to this Diem.

01:10:17--> 01:10:30

programs are amazing. Look, those shows that he came with in the ocean, the fish in the ocean. Have you guys seen those programs with all the colors of those fish?

01:10:32--> 01:10:40

colors? You don't you can't even make those colors up. You look at those fish. And you have to say so pot the Muslims that supernova.

01:10:41--> 01:10:45

When if all the fish look the same, everything was the same.

01:10:47--> 01:10:59

The stars, the constellation, the stars are not the same. Some are bigger, some are small, some of burning some of this, you look at that the diversity beautifies the constellation, what if they all were the same?

01:11:03--> 01:11:34

That's an idea. And from as I add is the differences in your colors? If we all look the same, and that's why Nora D, my student, he want to marry a woman from Cameroon and go and marry a woman from America. gonna marry a woman from France, European, and so forth. Because you want diversity. Nobody was nobody wants to eat curry curry curry every day. Curry who's gonna eat curry every day?

01:11:36--> 01:11:37

Can you eat curry every day? Brother?

01:11:39--> 01:11:43

Um, yes, an Asian brother. I hate Earth man. Can you eat curry every day?

01:11:45--> 01:11:48

Every day? diversity brother.

01:11:49--> 01:11:51

So listen, it's an iron. Let me ask you this question.

01:11:53--> 01:12:02

And your tongues is an iron. If we all came from Adam, and we came from Eve, why do we have all these languages? How did the languages change?

01:12:04--> 01:12:35

Every one of us in the house that you're living you, your wife, your mother, your father, your sisters, your brothers, your kids. You're all speaking the same language. You don't have the two parents speaking English. One son speaking Spanish. Another one speaking Urdu, another one speaking Arabic. We say what's up with that, but you learn somewhere you live somewhere. We all speak the same language in the family. But why do human beings have always lived in Nigeria, they have over 100 languages and one country.

01:12:37--> 01:12:39

That's an iron an iron.

01:12:41--> 01:12:56

What happened? That's a story unto itself. When people started to migrate, and traveled to the earth, the change in the climate, the change in the elevation of the earth, the seasons, it started to affect the language

01:12:57--> 01:12:59

you learn this and sociology

01:13:00--> 01:13:08

you learn this stuff? That's it if he hasn't, but the best language out of all of them is what language Arabic

01:13:09--> 01:13:13

but does that make Arabs better than everybody else? No.

01:13:15--> 01:13:23

So, listen is the last thing that I want to mention it honey the very last thing about this is connected to the creation

01:13:24--> 01:13:34

is the Hadees that we talked about the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu was selling a method or movement method or nakhla method men method or nakhla

01:13:35--> 01:13:42

method law and Mimi methyl and left Letty Can you translate for that translate for us that

01:13:50--> 01:13:50


01:13:53--> 01:14:27

the example that have been set the example of the believer is like the example of the date palm tree everybody is like to date palm tree in many ways many ways we're not here to explain that we talked about that before. One of the most important ways you're similar to the day palm tree is that the date palm tree is in the earth and is firmly established and it has a soul your religion has to be a religion you know what you're doing? You want to do the moment people want you to do the moment don't just go with the wind and do the mole it you have to say to the people where that come from

01:14:28--> 01:14:36

you have to have a really in your religion got to know what you're doing can't be all over the place everybody else doing it so I'm doing it

01:14:37--> 01:14:40

the chef yeah ah havea

01:14:45--> 01:14:54

everybody is doing our young people, our young people while smoking weed, everybody else smoking on white smoke cigarettes. My friends do it. No man

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

can be a copycat like that. You have to have a soul

01:15:00--> 01:15:11

Why are you doing a Wait, what are you doing Halloween for? We just do it in school everybody. We don't do what everybody does. The young man he has to understand that you're different.

01:15:13--> 01:15:49

So the knuckleheads like that. Another example is the day palm tree brings benefit. You're going to benefit from it. So the believe is going to benefit. He sees people in the masjid. The man is not praying, right? He doesn't put his hands right he doesn't do this correctly. you advise him something the masjid is not right. You correct it, you go to the admin, you talk to them, don't sit amongst yourselves and you talk amongst yourselves just amongst yourselves. Go to the admin and advise them this assign you a courageous sign that you want

01:15:51--> 01:15:57

the third one and this is the point that they palm trees and the dates are they all the same?

01:15:59--> 01:15:59


01:16:01--> 01:16:03

No, they're not all the same. They're different.

01:16:04--> 01:16:12

The believer is like the date palm. The day palms are different. And the believers are different.

01:16:13--> 01:16:24

So you have those dates that come from Algeria and Morocco. You know, I'm talking about those dates come from Algeria Morocco. You have those days that you put them in the freezer

01:16:25--> 01:16:29

and then you eat them with that tower? You know what I'm talking about? They call them sukari.

01:16:30--> 01:16:31

They have him in the collegia law.

01:16:32--> 01:16:34

You have those? I just

01:16:35--> 01:16:40

I just did anybody who eats seven ijoy dates he won't get magic put on him won't get poisoned

01:16:42--> 01:16:44

I do have familia Medina only

01:16:46--> 01:16:47

so the days are not the same.

01:16:49--> 01:16:54

The days of Africa I've been to Africa I some whacked out with dates in Africa.

01:16:55--> 01:17:02

My brother some pieces old maybe you can do silly things and then you get them African days you know

01:17:04--> 01:17:09

African days with the kola nuts man i i don't know brother. They all are not the same.

01:17:11--> 01:17:13

Listen to what Allah said in the Quran.

01:17:15--> 01:17:35

Fill out the Kaito Mata Jabari rotten with jannatul min anab was zero when the heel sin one was a little sin one you spa the mat in my head when the * did Oh Baba and about Phil open enough that they can certainly call me Yaki Lord

01:17:37--> 01:18:07

and the earth there are you know there are we traveling the earth the land that you see. So when you travel from Medina to Mecca and you driving down that highway three hours you'll see in the earth it changes the landscape hit the motor job we rot pieces of land that are next to each other so when you start out It looks like this and then it changes and then it changes and then it changes and then it goes back

01:18:08--> 01:18:15

is different you don't get one solid same texture of land for the whole trip

01:18:16--> 01:19:05

Why is one land like this one right next to it starts to change this one has yellow flowers This one has roses The next one is barren and the next one so the law said he said an end those different lands are dates nephele dates, some of the dates that you find they come in clusters like grapes together and some days or without clusters they come in at 1111 you know the string and then like that some together like clusters like grapes and you peel a grade on some things like that and some days are on the vine that string to pull one off you even like that the believer is live at some believers are like this and someone like that and Allah saying I and some of these dates we make

01:19:05--> 01:19:11

them taste better than others Some are sweeter than others some of them are more some of them are um

01:19:13--> 01:19:14


01:19:16--> 01:19:54

so the Muslim is the one who looks at these issues and whining and he says to himself this person is this color this tall have this sex because a lot created them like that. And this is so yes as we have racism Some of us have this thing where we are sexist as well. When we look down on women, our culture looks down on women. They're not to be heard and not to be seen. They just to be used cook have babies was the racist has a problem the way it looks at people and the one who's a sexist looks at women second class citizens. No, not

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

everybody has his unique situation.

01:20:00--> 01:20:15

And all of that comes from the help of Allah. And that's why he is a HELOC. a HELOC he is a Holic and l HELOC serum mobile Allah. Allah is the Creator

01:20:18--> 01:20:28

we're gonna stop here in sha Allah who Thailand We ask Allah tada to save us from racism and save us from all this other stuff. We'll take one question in sha Allah you got that question for them anybody

01:20:30--> 01:20:32

brothers here right? Yeah my man is here

01:20:42--> 01:21:07

is it permissible for the Muslim to sane to feel that he's better than other people allow him a non permissible but he shouldn't be arrogant and he shouldn't walk around with his chest puffed out but his theology has a card is any Phil's religiously he's better than other people because in the crummock mendola he at PARC on the best of you to one has the most tough one. He man good works.

01:21:10--> 01:21:56

But he doesn't walk around I'm better than you even towards non Muslims Prophet Mohammed wasn't like that he treated him good. And what's strange about that, Christians say, if you don't believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross, and he died on earth for you For you to take your sins away, you go to hell fire. I'm better than you. Some of them walk bet like they better but many of them just regular, but they have that Jews had the same thing. So is an issue that well they can do so we can do it. No, that's not the point. That's not the point. But as Allah mentioned in the Quran, Allah to general insert Illa de agua dooney ma od domainer memorystream, Wilma, od Domingo Ramon and Mullah

01:21:58--> 01:22:37

who are reserved total coverton Mateen, Allah created Benny Adam to worship Him. And if people have taken others away from the worship of Allah, then they strike out on their own. They struck out, they struck themselves out by getting away from the fitrah. So we're going to say without any apologies without any apologies, theologically, our our key the fear of theological our theology is that we're better. But what does that mean? What does it mean that you can oppress people you walk around, arrogantly that's against la Stan? Allah told us and don't walk in the earth.

01:22:38--> 01:22:45

Like you're arrogant. The earth opened up and swallowed the man who was walking in an arrogant fashion.

01:22:47--> 01:23:08

So I'm not gonna sit here and try to sugarcoat that what makes people better from the Quran at taqwa, l II man and your actions. We want to welcome our brother Nora thing back. We went took a nice trip long trip, I'm rocking back with a tan on top of his and Cameroonian tan

01:23:10--> 01:23:21
