today, we are now
a week ahead of the incident that everyone knows about, with what happened last week to the point where I don't even have to specify it. And everybody knows what I'm talking about where a young kid in America was afforded the opportunity in that society and that system to go and legally purchase a firearm not just a regular firearm, but an assault rifle, although he's a child. And he took that gun and he killed 18 innocent, unsuspecting children in the school.
I want to raise your awareness, as it relates to a few issues in this regard as a community as individuals, families, parents, I think that these issues should be considered in light of all of the political things that are going on around us on a daily basis. So just want to make four points in Sharla. And then conclude with the last point. First point that I want to make from this incident is that it goes to show clearly that the model of the Chabad the when people are teenagers, when they're young, from the age of 13, to 19. And even beyond 1920 2123 This is a very serious mohalla or stage four child. And that's why in our religion, the Quran and the Sunnah, deals in very fine
detail about addressing the issues. So if you're a parent of a teenager, as I am, Mother, father of a teenager, you're responsible for messages, and there are teenagers, then our religion, places a lot of responsibility on our shoulders to deal with that. As it relates to America. I want to make it clear that many times here in the West, in America, the government's put a lot of pressure on us, the Muslims to get our Shabaab in check. Because many times they become radicalized many times they become extreme. And that's our responsibility, as we said so many times. So we have a religious responsibility to address the needs of our Chabad tomorrow, inshallah, there's going to be a program
here called my future, my education, in which we're encouraging the youngsters to make something out of their lives. And that's one of the many initiatives and programs that are being done by green lane and other massagin where we're trying to be responsible for our Shabaab. But we want to say to the west and we want to say to America good
A grip on your show that
our youngsters are not the only ones who are at this critical stage in their lives where they make mistakes. You get a grip on your Chabad before you start putting pressure on us, those what the West needs to do, and that's what America needs to do. And when I say the western America, then by default, I'm talking about the body here because we're in the West, we're from America, and we're not going anywhere. inshallah. I just think that it is sick is not fair. It's hypocritical, that so much pressure is put on our community as it relates to doing our job and our responsibility. And we acknowledge that embrace it and accept that we have a responsibility but don't be a hypocrite.
Get a grip on your Chabad
we're killing innocent people the way they're killing them. What's the difference between what ISIS does and what that kid did. So if one fathers mothers, we got to be on top of our kids, things are going on in their heads in their hearts, boys and girls, that the child can explode. And before you know it, you're dealing with a serious problem. Point number two that I want to deal with concerning this issue is some advice that I want to give to those people who have inferiority complexes. You know, in society, there are different people. You have the rich, you have the poor, the educated, the not people are not educated. You have the ignorant, the arrogant, you had the individual who was
humble, yep, all kinds of a snob and upset with people. You have the racist the bigot, the one who is suffering from superiority complexes, and you have his antithesis, the opposite of that. You have the person who was inferior. Maybe his country was colonized. Maybe his country is not that advanced. So he looks at other more advanced countries. Maybe this individual, something happened to me just doesn't love themselves. Like some of my sisters, where I come from in Africa, bleaching the skin to look like white people wearing wigs and burning your hair to look like white people be satisfied with you who you are. People have inferiority complexes, that thing in America was showing
you there then people those people, I'm a community, whenever they look at the West America, white people, they see things from a lens where everything is rosy, everything is sunny and beautiful. Everything is nice. Whenever they look at White people, Europe, America, all they hear are birds chirping and beautiful sounds, that's what they they smell nice aromas. But when it comes to people of color, when it comes to the Muslims, all they can do is criticize, everything is dark, black, bleak, rainy, what they see is not nice. What they hear is not nice. And he just can criticize criticize the rulers of the Muslims, the lands of the Muslims, the an educated Muslims. And all of
that is there, no doubt. But just as we have all of those negative things, we have positive things. And just as America, the West white people, they have a lot of positive things, but they have negative things as well, like your kid going to school on Monday morning and getting his news planted on the wall for no reason other than someone allowed another young kid to purchase a gun. So we say to those people with inferiority complexes, America is not gentlemen.
America is not what I was going to ask you about to get into gentlemen, that's not It's not like that. So some of us suffer from this thing. inferiority complexes and we have others who thinks they're superior to people. And this is not something that only white people have. I've suffered from more I've experienced more racism from Muslims than I did in America or from non Muslims. But my point is that person who is inferior who wants to always put us down, people of color down Muslims down. That was from the actions of the Malacca King in the Quran. They used to always talk bad about Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and the companions rubbed the alarm as mine. And they
used to always talk good about the non Muslims so allies are gentle mentioned to the monastic you know the hypocrites in the Quran, ha ha ha la JAL delta and delta
dunya for men you
know, piano you were those people who you are defending them. You're always defending them. Are we sick master or are we okay boss, that's how we are people with that mentality. Who's going to argue on their behalf yo piano, who's going to be there to argue on what they did what they
Law of fit and facade. So for the one who has an inferiority complex, is this not an idea for you to know, everything in the West, everything in America is not okay. some serious issues. And if you need a situation like this to wake you up to that point, then you have really been sleeping. The other issue and this is critical. And I stand here to warn this community of this, especially our youngsters, and that is, I have to warn you about being careful, being careful of being from those people who are the conspiracy theorist of legionnaires this from this member a number of times, there are some Muslims who give their hearts, their minds, their heads, to the people on the
internet, who everything is a conspiracy to the degree and to the point that these people don't even believe that what happened last week happened. My question to you Muslims is if someone came here on the member and he was a conspiracy theorist, and he decided to give a hug, but today about a hoopla and a sham, that CD where the Muslims are suffering. He decided to start telling us don't believe in what you see on the news as it relates to a sham. And then Hoopa is something that's been put together in Hollywood. It may be that some of us are going to get out of that line and come up here and throw him over this member. Because what he says is incendiary. His graphic is not respectful.
And it's absurd. Who in his right mind thinks like that. Because I was in in Florida when that man shot those kids. I don't believe it. They manufactured that in Hollywood who talks like that it honey Ellis Nyan. You all know, getting knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim. Our religion is a religion that's predicated and built upon knowledge. Knowing what you're doing on this Juma is it permissible for someone to do sign language on the day of Juma? Well, we can't just decide it just decided like that. We have to study this issue to come up with proofs that would allow us to do it or not to do it. That's our religion. Before you put that foot down, know what you're doing. And
don't worship Allah haphazardly, like the Yahood and the Masada and other than them.
So when you come to this thing about the people who are on this Illuminati, Illuminati conspiracy, conspiracy, it's not knowledge based. Everything about our religion is against that. You make decisions based upon guessing conjecture. He says she said lies, it's not substantiated. And I say from my own personal experience, those Muslims who I know who are giving their time to conspiracies like this, those people if they just spent a fraction of the time that they get to read in all of these conspiracies to learn in their religion will lie here they'll be competent and qualified to teach our religion you young brothers in you young sisters, beware Be careful kill those sites where
you're giving your mind to this conspiracy stuff. Allies are jealous sentence prophets and messengers Salawat de la he was sent ama who and he and he sent them with them he Zan and the museum in Las Nam is fairing just you have to be paying just for the sun. You have to be paying just for your relatives, family just for your relatives and other than your relatives. And then you have to be fairing just who are upgradeable taqwa be fairing just as better for you is closer to a dakhla. Our total has never been as an aide Salawat the way he was sent out in Hawaii when he sent them to us people in Midian chalet went to those people. And they had an issue with not being fair. And just
that's one of the reasons why they were destroyed. When they used to do business. They used to cheat each other and gypped each other was part of their culture. It was well known it was acceptable. He came to them to tell them stop doing that. We were told that story to learn the issue the importance of being fairing just told me Oh, fully MC yada, when means allowable cost when I took her to NASA shadow him when I told
him, he told us people as I'm telling you, hey, my people, established the way you weigh things, weights and measurements, establish them with justice, and don't prevent the people from the things from their rights and don't make mischief in the earth. Now the mother or the father had to go to that school. Not knowing was my child, one of the children that was killed.
The whole jr heard about what was going on, you get news of that as a parent and you go to that school not knowing is my kid alive or dead, and then you find that he was dead. Not only was he dead, but there was overkill. He was shot eight times, eight times with an assault rifle.
And then some Muslim comes. And the Muslim who has the religion of truth says without any higher without any hesitation, he's not shy, he's not embarrassed. He says it didn't happen.
Allah He there are many men. out there many men Hodges there's the main hedge of tequila. There's the main hedge being liberal. There's the main hedge of the women who they don't like where Ellis Lamb has put them. So as a result of that she's calling for women's liberation and feminism. There are many, many men Ah, one of the worst, most dangerous men hatches out there for the Muslim mind is the one of the conspiracy theory. That thing happened in sha Allah and only an idiot, someone that something is wrong with you. If you can't get your mind around that. You're the only one along with another few people walking around not believing that. And it's not fair. As I said, How would you
feel as an oma as an omen as a community? Someone says, were you in Syria yourself? No, I wasn't there. It's not real. All of those destroy buildings, those women are asking for help the children. All of it has been manufactured in Hollywood. Every Muslim who has some level of Eman is going to say, hey, us good. But can you be quiet when I try to hear that garbage that you're talking about? So this thing shows us as an m&a team. Beware, beware, beware, beware of that stuff about being on the consumer conspiracy bandwagon. The other issue with honey, and this is really important as well want to deal with it from two angles is the issue of the media. The issue of the media. First thing
I want to mention about what happened last week in the media is the spin that was quickly given to the situation about the boy having mental problems being crazy. And he hadn't been to problems and before him before him, before that individual a few weeks ago, a few weeks ago, in Las Vegas, the white Christian American man who went up in the hotel, started shooting people with a similar assault rifle. And he had other ones other ones in the room started shooting those people in blasting those people killing them indiscriminately. As soon as they found out he was American and white. And he was a Christian. Right away. The spin was crazy mental problems. And I agree, little
problems can kill people like that and be sane. And then before that, and then before that, before that, in South Carolina, a young white Christian kid goes inside of a church on Sunday kicksta church open while some African Americans are worshipping dead Jesus, their version of Jesus Salawat the light was sent out what open fire on them and blasted at them and killed senior citizens innocent. As soon as the media got a whiff of what's his color? What's his religion? Again, the spin. He's crazy. He has mental problems, past Ramadan, a white man Christian from this country right here. He was radicalized How? By looking on the internet and reading the stuff from British
British they are allowed to radicalize people. And when they radicalize people, the media makes it okay. It's not dealt with the way is dealt with towards the Muslims when the Muslim gets radicalized.
So that man went and ran over a bunch of Muslims, maimed some and killed one may Allah have come upon the issue that the individual when they found out white individual Christian from the UK, he's crazy mental problems. I can go on and on and on with these situations. A lady I'm gonna mention her name from this member out of respect. Her name was Joe Cox. She was a member of parliament up in the north. This lady did a lot for women across the globe, Muslims and non Muslims. She used to go and protect them
from rape and the aftermath of rape, protect them from hunger. She did a lot for women across the globe in the Muslim, non Muslim world. She did a lot for her country's constituency. She's one of the few one of the few politicians that you can believe when she speaks. You can believe her when she speaks.
There was another man, white Christian British man. He was radicalized by the night by the British front by those people. He stabbed her and shot him broad daylight and civilized society starter and shot her in broad daylight for anybody to see. But when they saw white ban christian right away the spin was crazy mental problems. And I agree. And I could go on and on, but I'm gonna stop there. And Manchester, when the young Muslim boy was accused of doing what he did,
they condemned him. They condemned Islam, and they put all of us on trial. doesn't have anything to do with me. I don't have to come here and apologize. I don't have to go to the podium and apologize. I don't have to go to the to the politician. I apologize. Why are we always made the film we on the backfoot defensive part of it is inferiority complex on leadership part. Part of it is weak leadership. Part of it is the pressure from the government pressure from the media.
That kid in Florida was a Muslim, had homosexual tendencies, a common common law, he was a practitioner of homosexuality, Muslim, he goes into the nightclub shoes to people he has nothing to do with Islam for the most part. But when they found out what's his religion was his ethnic background. Islamic terrorism becomes with the newspaper in the media is telling us. So I'm bringing this to your attention and making you aware of this, not because it's something new, but we got to wake up as it relates to what are we going to do about this media? How are we going to address and deal with this challenge? Do we stay a community that stays in four walls of our massages? And we're
just discussing debating the important issue of Should I move my finger? Or should I not move my finger? And if I should move it, move it up and down to the right or should I do it like that important issue. But there are more important issues on the table for the leadership of the Muslims, most of that we have to deal with? So that's the first issue as it relates to the media. The second issue Yeah, Abdullah,
did you not see how when that thing happened on Thursday in America, that on Friday, the whole world was talking about this thing. And the whole world knew about this thing. And I'm not necessarily blaming anyone for this. If anything, I'm saying we have to wake up as a community, this Masjid over here, doesn't like this Masjid right here. And I messed it over there. doesn't like that mistake over there. And that mustard over there. It doesn't like him. And then it's compounded. That Pakistani person doesn't like that one. And that Arab doesn't like that one in that African doesn't like that one. And then it is more compounded. And we have all of this, the life and all of this to
follow up with our my dad.
And he's people are playing hardball with us.
It's not a joke. Everybody who has a family, we have more than enough to keep us busy with just keeping our families together. Now, Islam says no, that's your responsibility, first and foremost. But you got to come out of your house and help Ellis and get establishing the earth. You gotta help Ellis lamb spread, you have to help to address these issues. So the whole dunion knew about what happened in America Why? Part of it is because of white privilege. Part of it is because of that, white lives seem to matter more than the lives of other people. And also because you have to play the song that the man is paying the man with an instrument, the one who's got an instrument, guitar,
flute, whatever, he is going to play the tune that the man who's paying him tells him play this tune.
So that's their country, they have the media, they're in charge. So it only makes sense. A young kid goes into a school kills 18 other kids, it's a clear indication they're gonna put that on it. But now my question is, only this week was the first time many of our community heard of the city called Ella Hoopa. It's the first time only with the problem of Syria than many of our community Hera Raka. We never heard of that before. We never heard of that. Although the word and Luton that city was mentioned by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he said he was sending them to start a Muslim Yeoman Bahama bill outta the garrison, and the place where the muscles are going to be
establishing a stronghold will be when there's going to be a big war, close to your piano. It's going to be at a place called El de
He caught it that inauthentic Howdy, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that that city was close to Damascus. And it's one of the best cities in all of Sham. Okay. Why did we hear about what was taking place, because the killing and the carnage and the massacre, and the rapes and things that are going on, and that is a bigger crime than what happened in Florida. And I don't take anything away from the severity of what happened in Florida. That was a massacre. That was a massacre, but in whooped up, a bunch of people were being killed. Lily coats are being killed, many women are being killed, and the people are just looking on the media is just looking on. The world is just looking
So am I gonna come here and just scream and scream and say to you people, it's not fair. It's not fair. I'm gonna tell you it's not fair. But now the question is, after realizing that, what are we gonna do about it? What are you and you and you gonna do about it? Because the way it is the culture and our message, it is a, I'm gonna leave it up to someone else to deal with the situation. When we get up for Salah, we have some little girls in the roles, we have some little girls, no little girl, she'll be in a rolls with the men. Many of us when we see that little girl, we won't say to a father, who's your brother, Hey, take my niece go to the end of the line. She can't be here because
she's breaking the line. If you know that the sin is on you. If I know that, and I don't say anything, the sin is on me. Because our culture. I'm just gonna come to the messenger is on Friday. I pray like get out of here. But I ain't got nothing else to do. No, you have something to do with the religion.
You have everybody has something to do with the religion. And that's why the Prophet told us it was sending them came down to Allah and tell us about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even if it is when I and we're giving Dawa, whether you realize it or not, and one of the messages that our community is giving Dawa on and I have to say it, and it's kind of like washing our dirty laundry out in public. But I gotta say it. One of the messages that we give to these people are, we are a joke. We're in mature, we're not ready for primetime.
Because when you look at the people, and you see what we're talking about what we're engaged in what's the most important thing to us. Usually, Islam is not on the priority list.
It's about money. It's about little things that may be important. But the most important thing is the deen of Allah. And the fact that people know who allies is. So metal Islam, I can hear you to you today. Just share some awareness to open up a door that I hope our community will begin to realize the importance of the fact that these people are not playing around with us. This is where I believe in conspiracies. And I believe everything is conspiracy, but there are conspiracies. And I know one of the conspiracies because a lot His messengers told us about it. He was going to die on
it. These people gonna come together to destroy your religion, the same way people come together to eat for one plate they are going to cut that is not a conspiracy.
That's real. And part of that conspiracy part of that conspiracy that is real, with its proof from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is those people willing to do whatever they can do to stop the spread of real Islam pure Islam. As for the Islam of hora fat, or the Islam that we have today? The cultural Islam, I'm a Muslim. I just want to pray five times a day fast the month of Ramadan, give some Southern Knesset I don't think they worry too much about that because they're getting a good image of what that is. And I'm not putting you down. I'm a part of you. You're part of me, I'm a reflection of you your reflection of me I talk to you, I'm talking to
myself. And I'll stand up here talking and I'm looking down at you people. So we need some responsible people to wake up from this slumber that we find ourselves suffering from kulu Cody hi that was stuck for a while he will recommend us Allah to Allah tofu It was said that.
And hamdu lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah babble.
whining I wanted to come today.
And really, I just wanted to make a short hold by maybe 15 minutes and just ask you people to donate generously today for the massacre that's going on in a loop. I was going to shorten the hook but so we can pray. And then after the slot asked you for more money, but I figured if I did that people would get up and leave anyway. But on this day, the best day during the course of the week, the day in which the Prophet said there's no date better than Friday. There is an
When we should do as accepted on this day, this is the day that Allah guided this oma to the truth and left the Yahoo den and Assad on not knowing our father Adam was born on this day was created on this day. Putting on this big Friday is the day in the life of the Muslim. What remains of this day, don't let it just go by do something positive with that time in the deal. And that doesn't necessarily mean you're staying msgid do something with your family do something positive. On this day on this Friday. All of the money that you guys give today is going to go to as
many people cannot get inside of Bluto because there's a blockade all over the point all over the place. But the people have green lane, they were able to connect with some people where we can get them some food and some help. And that's what's going to happen. And the last three years for anyone who has double green lane this message with your help. When I say green lane, I'm not talking about the people running the office. When I say green lane. I'm not talking about Pakistanis who started this mistake. When I say green lane. I'm not talking about
new people. For the last three years, our community was able to skate over 3 million pounds to help the Muslims in Syria. So that's to say what to brat know to let you know that the money that you give it finds its place. And there's transparency over here on the ground. So I want to take this opportunity. I know every week you give two pounds, three pounds, some get five some get 10. I'm asking you people, the one who gives one pound or MC pocket we change gave 510 pounds today, the one who gets five or 10 pounds normally get 2030 pounds today. Let us let us look at his day. And I'm not blowing smoke in your ear. I'm telling you that the people over there are in need. Last night
there was a program on TV called face facing Africa, facing Africa where British doctors highly qualified and competent went to Africa, Ethiopia specifically and performed some miracle operations on the Ethiopians who had been disfigured in the faces amazing operations. Normally I can watch programs like that and I can even eat doesn't bother me. But it was so go tests. So left field that will lie he was disturbing me to see some of those people and I said those people got challenges. Those people got problems. I got issues I got challenges you do. But if you saw that lady who's facing her jaw was out like that non Muslims went and cut that stuff out and fixed her face up along
with the other people which goes to show not all Europeans not all Americans are against us. They went in they did that for free. But my question is how do they find it doctors find it in their heart to get time to go and do free operations for two four to three weeks and a so called third world country how and then the Muslim comes in hears about
your Prophet said that sallallahu it was seller he said about a sham in a fessor the Aleutian for the hater if the people have a sham gold corrupt and they're no good then there's no good in this oma if someone told you Yeah, Abdullah I'm asking you that people attacked Mecca. They blockaded Mecca, how are we gonna we're gonna look at that and say like, even those people go overboard against Saudi Arabia, we don't say what
we got a March we got to do this. People want to want to do something. They did that to Medina. people they don't want to do something. Well, they're doing that to a sham. And that's the third most important message in love Islam. Where is that? Where is that sensibility and sensitivity that empathy and sympathy. So in concluding omitted Islam, men and women, and even your children, we're asking you today, let us break the record, and give as much money as we possibly can. All of that money having the need of going to those people in need for my brothers and sisters in a router. And we asked a lot of supanova data to help us and to help them and to give them strength over the
enemies and that he supanova Allah makes it so that this Bala that is affecting the Muslim soon passes, and that he given us gives us some people have the voice of reason that help us to secure and to keep maintain our land in these times of trials and tribulations. So if whining and whining, whining, fly to metallus land, donate generously today, all of the money, all of it that's collected, it's going to go to our brothers we asked Eliza gel to put it in your midwife, Xena pasilla yomo piano, aka masala yo hamakua
