Lower to La he was saying, Why don't they be de minimis buffer?

00:00:06--> 00:00:10

Why should one La la la la Allahu Allahu la sharika

00:00:11--> 00:00:19

what a shadow and a new Mohammed bin Abdullah who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam o who it Amma Bob,

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

come to

00:00:22--> 00:00:56

the third and the fourth Miss Ella from the Messiah. You live in Jamia the beginning of the book, those things that the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad did not did not SallAllahu it was selling them came. And he was in opposition to what the non Muslims were upon before he came during the times of J havia. So if he came, and he was in opposition to them at that time, then if the people right now, even if they happen to be the people of Al Islam, if they are doing those things, and they're on

00:00:56--> 00:01:11

panels things, and you can rest assured that the newbie of Islam southern lady was setting them was in opposition to it today, just as he was. When he first came Sallalahu it was said. So the third point is that they held

00:01:13--> 00:01:24

the acts of opposing the authority and failing to comply with him as being something that was virtuous.

00:01:25--> 00:01:40

And they saw that when it came to hearing listening to an Oban, the person who was in authority, they saw that and understood that to be degrading and humiliating.

00:01:45--> 00:02:04

The Prophet came SallAllahu it was said to them, and he commanded the people that they had to have supper with the people who are in authority over them. And he acts, he spoke extensively about this issue, he put it out there, and he repeated it multiple times.

00:02:06--> 00:02:14

There's something really important that the Sheikh said concerning this, but we'll come to that beginning. So if you recall,

00:02:15--> 00:02:31

the very first two mus LS, the first one was that the people may shift can Cofer and they took their religious people as a cause to make *can COVID problema. McCain said, religion of Islam is against that. So they may shift.

00:02:32--> 00:03:00

The second point that we took is that they used to be divided amongst themselves because of the many things that they worshipped. By default, there's going to be at the photo and the life. So he's worshipping the moon and this one is worshiping the sun and that one is worshipping an idol and that one is worshiping a sibling who marry him. And that one is worshiping the Blackstone, and that one over he is worshiping the star and so forth. And so on this one a tree that when a rock, they're

00:03:00--> 00:03:41

going to be divided amongst themselves. And we talked about that today. The third point is that in Jay Lea, they did not listen to anyone who was in authority. They were free spirited, and they used to actually look at listening to someone and obeying someone who is the Emir or the leader over the tribe or over the city. They saw that as a form of humiliation and degradation. You don't do that. They saw going against the leader and the leadership, and being independent and liberal. And being

00:03:41--> 00:04:14

free to what you want to do go against the leader, break away from him fight against them. They saw that as being chivalry, they saw that as radula. This is something that a man would do. By the Prophet Cain sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a religion and he was in opposition to that, in opposition. These three points come to us from an authentic hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He mentioned in Allah Yoruba that confer ratha will yes to lecom filata. Allah says,

00:04:14--> 00:04:55

Please, for three things to happen with you, and he is displeased if three other things happen. The first three are the first three things that the chef mentioned in his book, Allah is pleased that you worship Him and you don't make * with him. And Allah is pleased that you all collectively come together and unite by holding on to the rope of Allah and don't be divided. And the third thing today, Allah is pleased that you collectively give advice to your leader. So the Imam brought this

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

hadith and he broke them down into three different issues. So today

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

On the issue of obeying the leader, and listening to the leader, the Imam Rahmatullahi. Tada says something really important. I alluded to it a few minutes ago. And that is he said that the life of the people wherever they happen to be, if these three things are compromised, or one of these three things are compromised, are going to be problems in the life of the people, it's going to be problems, if they should on the earth and in the lives of the people, it's going to create problems.

00:05:30--> 00:06:02

And if people are not united, it's going to create problems. And if there is no leader, or the people not respecting the leader, obeying the leader, dealing with the leader, the way he should be dealt with, there are going to be problems. As it relates to the statement he said about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Luffy vandyk Abdallah, why add Prophet Muhammad made that leave. He talked about this issue about the leader and he was stern and strict meaning of that is some of the

00:06:02--> 00:06:33

things that came to us from the Prophet showed us the importance Allahu alayhi wa sallam of listening to and obeying the leader. We have some people today they are Muslims. They don't respect the leader. Now Muslims that's a part of their life. They don't respect the leader, the leader of the Muslim world, for example, if there is a leader of the Muslims, the people who are calling to horloge since I've been a Muslim 86 I've heard that Tao in my ear. In the UK with consistency in

00:06:33--> 00:07:06

America. ignorant people come in telling the Muslims after making take fear of the Muslim rulers of making kotoge against them. This is what the people of Jamia used to be upon. This was what the people of Jay Haley used to be a bar. They used to axe the imams in the past. Not every hammer bucket in Z. The imams in the past are in a marvelous slum. Because some of our people think that the Imam and the leader of the Muslim he has to be like Omar, even though Hapa when in fact,

00:07:06--> 00:07:41

remember, Tom is not in this audience. He's not in this Masjid. So why are you expecting the leader they'd be like, oh, man, Bob, and if he was like Mr. Evans, top, many of us will be walking around with bumps on our head, because Mr. Used to hit people and chastise them for not making salatu Fajr. For not working for making ghee, but an amoeba and doing all kinds of things. So we get leaders who are similar to us, we're not going to get aroma, and the way we are in practicing the religion. So

00:07:41--> 00:08:18

they used to ask those Imams a long time ago, which one is better? If we have a Lila, and the man who is a facet, he's not a religious person. He's a bad person. But he's strong, powerful and mighty. The people from the Muslims respect him, and they afraid of him. And the non Muslims and enemies respect him, and they are afraid of him. Is he better? Or is it better to have a religious righteous Muslim leader who is weak, his community don't respect him. And the non Muslims are not

00:08:18--> 00:08:51

afraid of him and not respected. And those scholars used to say, the one who is a religious but he's strong is better. And the reason for that is the one who was religious, his not being religious is going to fall back on him. That's between him and Allah, him and Allah, but the people will respect the community and they respect law and order, and the non Muslims are respected as well. Like they used to respect Qaddafi. Like they used to respect Saddam Hussein. I'm not here.

00:08:52--> 00:09:21

clapping, supporting Qaddafi, who some of the Redeemer said was a non Muslim. And some of them said Sudan was a non Muslim, I'm not here to debate that, when I'm here to say to you is because they were strong and mighty and powerful. In Iraq. And in in Libya, there was peace, safety and security for the Muslims. And that's why the SEC refused to say they used to say one day is to say

00:09:22--> 00:09:54

1000 years, 1000 years under the leadership of a bad leader is better than one night without any leader at all. Because when there's no leader at all, the highway robbers are going to come and rape your wife, and they're going to come in your house, and they're gonna rob you and they're gonna shoot you and going to take your kids away from you. This is what we have right now in Iraq, in Syria. And in Libya. I just use those two as an example because the leaders of those two countries

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

were strong, they were strong. They were strong. And right now the people come from that area.

00:10:00--> 00:10:28

Many of them wish that they were back again. Because the fold and the confusion that people were dealing with right now is a problem. If you have a Muslim leader who is religious, he prays he fast, he gets Southern, they do all that stuff, but his own community, they take their shoes off and throw their shoes at him. When he's given a lecture. What is he going to do? His being religious is on him is for him. That's it. Now I don't want someone to sit there because what happened is, people

00:10:28--> 00:10:59

sometimes when they don't like what you're saying they conflate and misconstrue what you're saying. This is a hypothetical scenario that the people used to give to the LMR right, but we know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu it was setting them in Allah catabolic sign Allah cliche. Allah wrote and prescribed. He ordained perfection on everything. So the perfect case scenario is that the leader is like I Bobak and Omar northlan and Alia, the Allah Allah, like I'm not I mean, Abdulaziz,

00:10:59--> 00:11:24

like Malawi, and people like that. He shouldn't be religious, and he should be strong. But in the absence of that, which one is better, an irreligious leader who's strong, or a religious leader who's weak, when it comes to lead in it is the irreligious one who has strength and power and might, because people want to obey the law. They'll obey the law.

00:11:25--> 00:12:01

As it relates to the issue of the Imams, the chef, he said, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lover, lover, it means to be tough and stern, the meaning of that and Allah knows best is that if you look at the Hadith, of what he told us about obeying the leader, they're not easy. They're not easy. They're not easy for them. To practice, they're not easy for the one who was emotional. They're not easy for the one who was Atlantic, he puts his alcohol before the delille.

00:12:02--> 00:12:32

They're tough. They're tough. It's like some of those no suits of Ellis lamb that women have problems with some of the suits of Islam. Because how Islam unearth the woman and the way that Allah saw and knew had wisdom and justice, the sisters, she doesn't know that. So there are aspects of Islam. She doesn't like, not even realizing you can't be a person who says you don't like something about Ellis lamb. Can't be like that.

00:12:34--> 00:13:08

So the Prophet told the people sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam about the leader who was a problem, should we listen to him? Should we obey Him? He said, I tell who were in the Malik, we're gonna have a VARK you should obey that leader. Even if he takes your money and he strikes you on your back. That's not easy to get with that. That's not easy. When somebody put their hand in my pocket, and I catch him trying to steal my money. Naturally, my fitrah will come from how long it's

00:13:08--> 00:13:39

going to be a problem. Prophet Muhammad told us well, that leader is not like that somebody that lead is somebody else. Obey Him. Even if he takes your money, your money that people love, work hard for your money. And even if you strike your back, it's gonna strike my back, and I still have to listen to him. Allahu Manam. That's the meaning of the prophets words sallallahu alayhi wa sallam attack leave the words of Sheikh Hamad bin Abdul Wahab Shaohua another example meaning statements,

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

the Messenger of Allah he mentioned sallallahu alayhi. Wa, early he was salam. Mata.

00:13:46--> 00:14:24

What is it? Okay, he Bay, Mata Mita Jahai. Anyone who dies and he doesn't have the bear to the leader. He has died the death of the people that Jamia that's tough, who wants to die the death of a giant black the Jahangir people who who wants to do that? Who wants to die the death of the people that are here, like the Muslim who dies, and hammer is in his stomach. We got high hammer, whatever drugs, ecstasy, whatever he was doing whatever she was doing. Prophet Muhammad said anybody who dies

00:14:24--> 00:14:51

in that state why you are high and the color is in your stomach. He said he dies like the one who worships the idol. That's not that that's that's not an easy thing. We are running away from covering Sheikh so if your death is described something like that is something that is death. That is something that is tough. That's what the chef meant. And Allah Tala, he knows best and there are many Hadith like that.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

Muslim as some Ouattara FEMA hubba with FEMA carrier, and Hadith, he said

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

The Muslim has to listen and obey the leader and what he likes and what he doesn't like. When he's energetic, and when he's tired, even if he sees the leader is playing favorites, while Allah He Himself, He deserves this and this and that, and this and this and that, along with his family, he deserves that. He is the mayor of this city. The leader should have given him so many things, but he didn't give it to him. He gave it to his relative over here, this one over here, you have to have

00:15:33--> 00:16:06

suburbs. And you know, that was a hadith the Prophet used to tell the Companions sallallahu alayhi wa sallam listen and obey the leader will Lolita Umrah alaykum I don't have a shell you LISTEN and OBEY the leader, even if that leader happens to be an Ethiopian slave. And if you're a slave can't be a leader. Slave can't be the lead over the Muslims. He doesn't even have control of his own time. He doesn't control his own time. If a person is a slave in Islam, he has to ask his Sayed, can I get

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

married? He has to ask his say yet can I go to umbra? Can I go to hygiene I say he doesn't own his own time.

00:16:13--> 00:16:44

But this was an example that the Prophet gave the people showing some love while he was selling them the importance of listening to and obeying the leader. Now I'm not going to get all deep into the fifth of the issue, but it's connected Wallahi according to the one that preceded it, and that is being united. So when that hadith were who they had been on, yeah, man. He said God also Allah, what if the Muslims find themselves living in a time when there is no Jamaat? And there is no Imam, what

00:16:44--> 00:17:18

should I do? What should I do and during a time of fitna, he says, stick to the leader of the Muslims and the Jamaat. But what if there is no leader and no Jamaat, he said, then avoid all of those groups, avoid all of those groups go and hang on to a tree and stay in that condition until death comes to you? So when we have a leader, we have a better opportunity and a full of opportunity to have led had to be united to protect the wealth of the Muslims to protect the lives of the

00:17:18--> 00:17:53

Muslims to protect whatever Allahu Taala has made in his religion that should be protected. So that's the first one for today as it relates to that. Allahu Taala mention a number of ayat in the Quran many a hadith I think the issue is pretty straightforward. He mentioned in the Quran, yeah, you live in an island who it Maha wa T. Rasool. We're all family men come, oh, you believe obey Allah unconditionally, obey His Messenger unconditionally, and obey those who have put in authority,

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

but obey them conditionally. Now, listen, this is important.

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

As I spoke up into this point,

00:18:01--> 00:18:17

when we're talking right now, in this religious setting, in the masjid, about the leader, we're talking about the leader of the Muslims. But this ayat that I mentioned, also was talking about your father's. Some of you are fathers, and some of you have fathers.

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

Women are listening. They have husbands, they have husbands,

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

those fathers and those husbands, also to be obeyed.

00:18:29--> 00:18:48

Not like the leader of the Muslims, where you give them a bath, but they should be obeyed. You should listen to your mother, you should listen to your father, the woman should listen to a wife has her husband, sometimes it's not easy. Your mother, your father, both of them put pressure on you say I want you to divorce your wife.

00:18:49--> 00:19:16

If they're religious people, and they have a religious reason to tell you that, and you love your wife, but they are telling you what is the heart because they see and they know something about your wife. That's not right. You should divorce your wife and obeying your mother and your father, as the Prophet sallallahu. It was sending them sin cient remark when he said that to his son, Abdullah and Irma. I'm loving them I loved his wife loved her, I must say divorce. That lady is no wait, went to

00:19:16--> 00:19:46

the Prophet and told him the story. Prophet Muhammad said obey your father. Now I don't want anyone to sit here and think my wife is my mother. My father, they don't like my wife for some reason, because she went bad. He jabbed me calm. And they say she's machete data. I'm gonna divorce her. I didn't say that. I said, if your mother and your father are religious, and they have a reason justify reason, you should obey them and everything you have the ability to obey them in that what

00:19:46--> 00:20:00

you don't have the ability to obey them different story. So now before moving on to the next point is sha Allah. The Prophet came with a religion Salallahu it was sending they told everybody hey, I'm down. That leader

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

of the tribe, the leader of the city, you have to obey Him.

00:20:04--> 00:20:28

You have to obey Him. And you're not allowed to look at obeying him as being a sign of weakness, you are chunk your punk because you're obeying Him, no. And he brought a number of things that we need to know Now's not the time to get into those details, but very quickly, he legislated something new that the kuffaar will not upon the kuffaar and keytab. And then we should recall,

00:20:29--> 00:21:00

we have to give them Naseeha. We give them advice, and we have sincerity to those leaders. You can't be given hope as against the leaders, as some of these GEMA do, especially the political Jamaat, they always give him political hobas Make it a huge against the leaders of the Muslims. And then when the Muslim world turned into what it turned into, we see them giving hot baths where they are crying. I don't know if those tears are real or not. I don't know what those tears are real or not,

00:21:00--> 00:21:31

but now's not the time to be crying. Now's not the time to be crying. You should have been crying when those people came to you. And they were asking for fatwas. And you should have been able to see what the future was going to hold. Not because you know they're in the middle shape. But because you know history. Those scholars used to say, the ruler of Ellis land, the ruler, ma people with knowledge. They know the fitna before it comes so when people come and ask them they say no, don't

00:21:31--> 00:22:02

do that. Don't do that. Don't make horloge so lmm asked me used to say that's what I'm Acme with mandible. Our son they just don't make porridge. Don't do this. Don't fight. Don't do this gonna be a fitna. Before the fitna comes. But the people ignorant the ignorant people, you know, young people do how people don't really know my opinion. I think they know the fitna. They know the fitna. When the fitna comes, and when it's going, but then it's too late. Now, the whole city is destroyed

00:22:02--> 00:22:16

people lost their lives shouldn't listen from before. So the Prophet brought this religion and contrast to the Kufa of coration other than them and Ankita giveness. See her to the leader.

00:22:18--> 00:22:49

Also be sincere to the leader. Make dua for the leader. Those scholars just say, if I had a dua that I knew Allah was going to answer that Diwan. I can say for example, Allah bring my wife here to the UK, Oh Allah, I want a million pounds, Oh Allah, I want a brand new car, I want to get that job. I want to get this I want to go to Medina many things. You said if I had a dua that I knew was going to be answered, I would ask a lot of guy that leader.

00:22:50--> 00:23:18

Because if I make dua for myself, it's going to be for my own personal muscle or her own personal benefit. But if Allah puts a slide in the leader, it's going to benefit the whole community, the whole nation, the whole religion. So when we see people making dua for the leaders, we say, Hey, we're behind that. But some of the people say, that leader is bad and that leave is bad. The fact that you're making that dua, he's making a DUA, he is a scholar for that. No,

00:23:20--> 00:23:52

no, I'm Alexa, daddy, that's not the issue. You will be any emotional and you're going against the I thought that those self left for us, as relates to the leader, we advise them and private that's what the prophet toilettes Allah Allah what it was. Just like you want your wife advising you in private, not in front of your relatives or relatives, guests, the children. Who wants that? What is right mind wants that. Mighty show me, a married man here, who if your wife stood up in front of her

00:23:52--> 00:24:22

mother, father, brothers, sisters, your father, mother, brothers and sisters, your children, and she started blasting you for something you really doing? Or you're not doing. And I say, hey, not like that. It's going to be a problem. So how are you going to do that? How are you going to think that's okay, with someone who has the sword has power, it's going to be problem, problem. The Prophet taught as well many things, many things, sallallahu alayhi, WA alayhi wa sallam, we don't make Cluj

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

against those people. So there are many issues, but generally speaking, that's what he's talking about. That Hadith that mentions those three things. And it goes to show the importance of those three things. Until he worship Allah alone, don't make check with him, and also be united amongst yourselves and don't be divided. And the third thing, Allah is pleased for you, anyone who Allah has put in charge of your affairs that you give him the Sefa collectively,

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

collectively and Tata NASA who min wala hula hoop American, not just one person

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

not just one person, this guy, he's from Oklahoma, this one over there. He's from the Missouri, this one over there. His profession is he's a reporter that went over there as an economist that went over there as a politician. Every body is advising them leader with those things that he needs to know and be aware of, for the betterment of this ummah. That's the Nirvana of our religion, people in J Helia. They didn't like that, they will fold up, they were on confusion. Before moving to the

00:25:30--> 00:26:04

next point. Anybody that you see who is being upon this thing that the people were upon, like doing our David colada, and these political thinkers and so forth and so on, phases from the affairs of Ajay Helia, Islam is free from that stuff. The fourth issue and the fourth point that the Imam brought Rahmatullahi Tala la he is that he said, from the soul of the people in LJ Helia, the non Muslims and keytab and the Oume Yun as well.

00:26:06--> 00:26:42

Their religion was built upon certain principles, the greatest of which was a tech lead blind following a tech lead an AMA, so that this was the biggest principle for all of the disbelievers the first and the last of them. First and the Last I mean to say what Allah He the check spoke the truth when he wrote this book a long time ago. I know and I don't know how many Muslims in this audience who came into a slam reverted to this religion converted to this religion. How many people in the

00:26:42--> 00:27:01

audience who used to be Sufi along with their family do Bundy Braley along with the family? I'm not one of those people who want to traffic into set, you know, planting the seeds of hatred and discord between the Muslims but that stuff is not from the Kitab in the Sunnah.

00:27:02--> 00:27:29

That was companions. We're not on that stuff. So some of you had those backgrounds, T Gianni and whatever. And then you come to the Sunnah and you start practicing the Sunnah. Our parents are the first ones to get upset with us and giving Dawa to my relatives, my mother, she's not antagonistic against Islam. But when I asked him my Come on, why are you not getting with the program? She says, that's not the religion that I found my mother and my father upon.

00:27:31--> 00:27:59

Yeah, that's because your mother and your father's mother and father and their mother and father, their mother and father was stolen from West Africa and they want it Sam, they were brought here, and Christianity was forced on them are we talking about? And besides, leave all that out of the equation. Just look at your religion, and then compare it to Al Islam. Islam is not a religion, not the Muslims, Islam is not a religion that you can get your head around if you think about our

00:27:59--> 00:28:28

religion makes sense. Makes sense. So from the assault of the religion of people, we're not on that list. Slam is at Tuck lead, a tech lead big, muscular, quani, big Michigan if you ask, you ask a person, why you smoking cigarettes, this habit that you have, and he wants to quit every Ramadan. He's struggling and he wants to quit. And he's sincere in trying to quit.

00:28:29--> 00:29:05

How did he start? He says I saw somebody else doing it. So I did it. He never went and read a book and saw that cigarette smoke smells good. Cigarettes, taste good cigarettes, beneficial endeavor never read anything like that. He saw people in front of him in and around, and he made tech lead of them. So if the father is smoking, the possibility and probability of your son smoking after you is high, higher than the one who he doesn't see his dad smoking at Tech Lead blindly following people

00:29:05--> 00:29:28

that you see before him. And this is why the newbie knew that sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Quran was revealed to Panem gonna read some of the AI to you in sha Allah. So the Prophet said, what knowing human beings have this propensity to blindly follow. He said, make sure make sure you don't leave your homes like a graveyard.

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

Camp pray in the graveyard. So pray in your homes, pray in your homes, so that your little toddlers who are lesser they're younger than five 710 They're only one and a half two years old. They see you making salon they're gonna be making Sagitta they mean and make recording make. They don't do that. But they'll go straight into such that they see that their dad was praying all of their life that kid possibility probability of him continuous

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

is greater than the one who didn't see his parents pray, and how many people now like from amongst us, we didn't see our parents praying. So we didn't pray until we came back to the religion, a tech lead as they do, we're going to do so he man brought some of the eyes of the Quran that show whenever the prophets and the messengers came to the people, the prophets and the messages had to deal with this. Now before I share with you these things, Shala is the point after me.

00:30:29--> 00:30:37

And the upcoming chapters, there is a chapter where the chef explained something that is similar to this fourth point.

00:30:38--> 00:30:55

So we're not going to do it again over there. And that is he said from the times of a Jamelia, one of the things that they used to do was Le t judge. They used to make an origin delille by the statements of those who went before the Medaka demean

00:30:57--> 00:31:27

they will make statements Carla for my bolo, coronal Gula. When they came, he said, What about the people wouldn't be for us, they didn't they didn't do this. They didn't believe that. That's your chapter. That's what the people used to say to some of the prophets and some of the messengers, when they used to come to them, some of the Wakulla he was cinammon while they him edge mine. They said my segment now behind the Fiat back in a wedding. The Prophet Messenger came to him they said, We

00:31:27--> 00:31:55

didn't hear this call with our fathers who went before we didn't hear this. So the Imam, he use this for another chapter. I believe it's the same thing. So we're going to connect that chapter to this chapter. When we come to that and we're going to jump over and inshallah as some of those iron that clearly showed us point. That one when I'm trying to get you to do right now is to focus on your own culture.

00:31:56--> 00:32:00

forced marriages, you know, those things in our culture

00:32:02--> 00:32:08

FGM female genital mutilation, the racism that we have

00:32:12--> 00:32:49

the Bloods and the Crips. I was born in this area cold like in London, the antisocial behavior with the Muslim kids. I'm born in this part of London. So I have to be an enemy to people in that part of London. Why? Why? Because I just have to blindly follow everybody around me. No, I'm loving my screw used to tell his students Abdullah give them a school. trained by the Nibi of Islam seven Allahu Allah, you send them that to Kuno and Ma, don't be a blind follower a copycat in the US in a nice

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

eye center wherever assassin dies, assert. Don't be a copycat where you see people, if they do good, you do good. If they do bad you do that.

00:33:02--> 00:33:23

Just the other day. I just saw these two kids. They stabbed up a kid and killed him. One of them didn't even know the other guy had beef with the guy but it happened stabbed them up and he helped him and then they have him on CCTV doing this to one another fist bumping like a good job. You like kill someone and now you're going to jail.

00:33:25--> 00:33:32

He didn't have enough sense to say hey, I'm getting out of this car. I don't want to be a part of that drama and folder.

00:33:35--> 00:33:47

So from those is Allahu taala. mentioned in the Quran. What cathodic Amma or tsunami publica ficaria Timoney revealed in the column

00:33:49--> 00:34:24

in our Jetavana banner meten. Were in a fairly him aka dune. Allah said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And for that reason, I'm 100 We never sent before you, any messenger and any warning to any city, except that the rich people and the fluent people in that city, they said, We found our fathers doing something else other than what you're calling to tuck lead. We found our father's doing something else. So we're gonna follow what our fathers were doing.

00:34:25--> 00:34:57

They never said, you know, profit messenger. What you're saying is not scholastically sound, what you're saying there's a contradiction. What you're saying is impossible. It doesn't make sense. They say no, we're not going to follow you because we saw our fathers doing something else. Everybody who is here, that's how your culture is. This man is from Lithuania. That was from Bulgaria. That one over there is some of Yugoslavia that went over there. He is from Somalia. That one over there is

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

from Sudan. That one over there is from Libya and

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

Every single group of people we have this stuff.

00:35:04--> 00:35:16

And sociology, the thing about societies and people, those things that make us who we are distinct groups, tribes, nations, is that people are going to follow what their forefathers were doing.

00:35:18--> 00:35:28

Look at Quraysh the man will take his daughter and go and bury his daughter life. And if you ask them, Why are you doing that? He says, I don't know.

00:35:29--> 00:35:43

Something that my forefathers did. How many of you people are not married? Put your hand up. If you're not married? Put your hand up high. If you're not American, don't be shy. Put your hand up. Hi. I'm gonna make you the Emir. of the people. We're not married. You're the Emir.

00:35:44--> 00:35:55

Allah hasn't blessed or gifted you brothers with any children yet? Can you imagine you'd finally get married to your soul mate, a good sister, mashallah the woman of your dreams.

00:35:56--> 00:36:04

And then you have a baby girl, she comes out nine months. You're gonna take that baby and go and bury that baby in the ground?

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

Who does that?

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

And the answer if you ask the person, why did you do that? He says that's what my father used to do.

00:36:16--> 00:36:51

Something is wrong with that. And they used to reject the message because of this. And people right now have problems in their lives because of this. So you have all of those ideas that came down? Were either kid Allahumma Tebbe uma Anzahl Allah, Carlo Bell net Tebbe uma el faina la he, Anna. Oh, well Oh, can I back up you want to share what I do? And if it is said to them, follow what Allah revealed the Quran and be authentic sunnah. Not the weak Hadith fabricated Hadith. Follow the Quran

00:36:51--> 00:37:26

and the authentic sunnah. Those people say No, instead, we're going to follow what we found our father's doing. Allah said, although your father's don't have any knowledge and they're not guide, it was really important. A tech lead. What is a tech lead? A tech lead at 20. The definition in Islam of a tech lead is taking the position of someone else and you don't know his deal. And you don't need to stand but you're blindly following him and you don't know what the deal is. You don't

00:37:26--> 00:37:57

know why. That's a tech lead. You take his position and you don't know why. Now it's permissible. Listen very carefully. It is permission permissible for you to make tech leaving your religion. We have to be in the middle. All right, I'm not from those people say you can't make tech lead. And now let's land. Norma for most people will say you must make tech lead of Abu Hanifa an Imam Abu Hanifa, Lima Malik and Imam, a Schatten Imam Ahmed, from those Peoples of Middle course. You can make tech

00:37:57--> 00:38:11

lead of someone. But there are some things you have to know very quickly. Now's not the time for this lesson, but it's important you see this being dealt with in the books of Zulu fake? Who's the mockolate and who's the dead.

00:38:13--> 00:38:31

You make tech lead of someone who has the right to be a coup doer. He is an example. He is an example. He's an Oscar. Naka, cannula, comfy Rasulillah, he also worked on her center, you have an inner be a perfect example. You make a clip of someone who has deep

00:38:33--> 00:38:56

Another thing is if you're making tech lead, then be quiet. Don't be opinionated. Don't get on social media writing and arguing debating the one who makes the claim. You're taking someone else's position and you don't know the deal. So you believe you should keep your finger pointed. That's it insula.

00:38:57--> 00:39:29

You should do roughly a dame you know that. But if someone came and said, Where's the delille? You say? Well, I don't know. I don't know. Then what you should do is make the cleat of someone who has good religion. He has Dean. He has, you know, trustworthy, all of that. But when it comes to debating, and when it comes to like an manava when it comes to arguing, don't talk Be quiet. Well, we have today, a lot of people who are making Tech Lead are just talking is one of the biggest

00:39:29--> 00:39:56

problems and challenges of the Salafi Dawa right now that a lot of people don't know what they're talking about are just talking. And if you were to sit and say when you get that from what are you talking about? He doesn't know the issues and he doesn't know what he's talking about as a result of this fitna. So make tech lead if you have to, because most of us are going to make tech lead in something. But you make tech lead. People were good, the ayat that we just mentioned. They said no,

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

we're not gonna follow what you brought. We're gonna follow our father's Allah

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

started the question, and your fathers didn't have any knowledge and they weren't guided. They don't deserve to be blindly followed. Because they don't have knowledge. What it looked like making tech lead of a Jahannam in the team.

00:40:15--> 00:40:29

Allah is ignorant in the deen, Halawa and haram fake he doesn't know, am I blindly following you, not you. As for the marvelous land, you want to follow, blindly follow some of the rhythm of Islam, you can do that.

00:40:30--> 00:41:03

But it's not permissible to blindly follow anybody wants to truth comes to you and you can clearly identify that truth. Clearly, it's not permissible. And this is why we always tell people, Look, don't tell us Yusuf al Qaradawi don't tell us that that's a deal for you, you that's not a deal for us. The deal, Allah said, His Prophet said, and how the Companions understand, don't just throw out names like that. That's not knowledge. Knowledge is being a present Allah in making this thing

00:41:03--> 00:41:13

against those kuffaar and their meaning meaning is of the Quran, meaning is whatever given the human Tabby Ummah is Allah Allah who call mu.

00:41:15--> 00:41:51

Ben met Toby Wilma with Jelena Ali, Baba Anna. Oh, O'Connor Shavon. Yet Earl whom ADA either had to say when he said to them similar iron and what is the repetition for because this situation people was dealing with, when it said to them, follow what Allah has revealed the Quran and the Sunnah. They say no, we're gonna follow what we found our father's doing. Allah said in this Quran, this ayat, although a che THON was inviting them in the ear follows their father's to the eye that side

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

to a terrible punishment, you still want to follow them.

00:41:56--> 00:42:16

So that's what they did. And this is why these is will reveal. And it's not permissible for Muslims to make this type of blind following of the relatives when it is clear that you're me and all of that stuff that we're following this stuff is not from the religion of Allah who's panna with Allah. It Debbie Oh,

00:42:17--> 00:42:33

my Uzi La La Cumbre. Become? Well, I tell you all in Dooney Ali, pay Leland Mata, the Kuru, far, follow what was revealed to you by your Lord. And don't follow the Olia.

00:42:34--> 00:42:42

Don't follow the ship that ship the ship that ship follow what was revealed. As for the chef, as for the share,

00:42:44--> 00:42:48

I give you an example. A chef ll Ben Rahmatullah.

00:42:49--> 00:43:19

We don't look at shake a little Benny as being my assume. But he graded the Hadith, he graded the Hadith. Many of us don't have the ability to read Arabic and to decipher what's going on. So we say, you know, I'm gonna trust him. He said that this hadith is authentic, you go with it. I remember. I remember. Amongst many of the people follow the Sunnah even till this day. People used to believe once you have a baby, you make the event in the right ear. And the common the left ear is life.

00:43:19--> 00:43:33

Because al bene great at that hadith died a long time ago. So people didn't do that. But many of the brothers on the Sunnah were doing the event in the right ear. Why? Because in the beginning, and then Ben, you said that was authentic.

00:43:34--> 00:44:02

And then knowledge came to him. People came to him and he changed that position. And he said is weak. Now, that's not a case of a person flip flop and Imam the shot theory. Al Imam Shafi. He started knowledge he was in Baghdad was getting knowledge is prolific in that area, and then Iraq, he left Iraq, he went to Egypt. So he has a red hat in that place. And he has a med hat in Egypt, two different eras of his time he grew he developed.

00:44:03--> 00:44:20

That's how those scholars used to say, they say an Imam, Abu Hanifa. Tell one of his students, Abu Yosef Walwyn to you, Abu Yosef, don't write everything that I say, I'm a human being. I will take a position today and I'll change it tomorrow when the proof comes to me.

00:44:22--> 00:44:50

So we don't say not gonna share his motor luck, but going back and forth with the color, we don't say that everybody is like that. You learn something that you didn't know before. So you change your position. So my point is, people didn't have the ability to go into the email, Hadith and make a judgement. So they just felt nothing was wrong with that. But when the truth comes to you, in accordance to your ability and your level, you have to get with the program. You have to get with

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

the program and don't blindly follow people when it's clear what they're doing what they're saying is wrong, clear. If it's not clear than that

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

is a different story. As it relates to this issue of a tech lead. We mentioned in 20, that tech lead is taking someone's position in the opinion, you don't understand it, you don't know what is delays, you just follow him. Now, if you took a person like L band, or one shake of Islam, whoever, living dead, whoever,

00:45:21--> 00:45:31

and you found his opinion, and it was supported by delille. And you follow the shift in that opinion, you don't call that tech lead.

00:45:32--> 00:45:55

That's called Le t bar. Because you're following the deal. You're following that that chef, the chef put the light on the thing. But what you're doing is you're making Avene you're saying that the Quran and the Sunnah the proof is was great, that Chef brought the proof that 3040 50 companions took this position.

00:45:57--> 00:46:04

So in this case, you're not blindly following the chef, you're making the electric bar. So we make tech lead

00:46:06--> 00:46:28

and what is pure and what is good, and when people make a tech lead, but they're following the delille, then it's not tech lead, it is a lengthy bar. As it relates to follow in a blindly following that which is good, we add that on as well. We have to add on unto it's permissible for you to make tech lead is permissible, but make tech lead of a good person.

00:46:29--> 00:46:39

Number two, number two, if you make Klieg don't argue when you hear and see people arguing in debate, and that's not the arena where you put your foot and be quiet.

00:46:40--> 00:47:03

When add on to that you make tech lead and what is good, don't make tech clean and what is bad. The ayat of the Quran said about the Companions was sabich Coonan, a Walloon, those first vanguard of Al Islam, the mu hygiene and the InSAR while living in a tuber room BSN and those people who follow them in good.

00:47:05--> 00:47:08

So some of the people from the cell if they made mistakes.

00:47:10--> 00:47:25

Some of the companions made mistakes, may Allah be pleased with them. Some of the tabular II made mistakes in the effort to us and what they did. We don't follow them in those things. We follow them in SN those who follow them in good.

00:47:26--> 00:47:43

So the tech lead is going to be in good. Lastly, the man brought the ire of the Quran in which Allah commanded the prophet to tell his people salAllahu alayhi wa salam Kula NEMA either Combi wa heathen and to como Mithuna. WA.

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

For other

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

methods were for

00:47:52--> 00:48:15

the Prophet sallallahu why he was sending them tell these people. I am going to warn you and tell you given exhortation and more either stand up all together, stand up and to stand up. As one I'm going to tell you one thing. Stand up, get up. And tools get up in ones and groups individually as you like as you like.

00:48:16--> 00:48:47

Ma Bissau Hey become men, J Jin nap, your companion. He doesn't have a gin and he's not metronome. Let me love the eye in the middle of the eye it is that those people knew the Prophet salallahu it was sending them before he came to them. He knew he was they knew he was a mean he was trustworthy. He was a good person. They didn't have any single negative thing to say against him or about him. His lineage, his people his history. They only knew positive about him. So Allah Allah what He was

00:48:47--> 00:49:01

saying. So when he came with his Dawa, why are you people Why are you people choosing to follow the ways of your forefathers and you can clearly see that your forefathers had issues were either Bushido

00:49:03--> 00:49:19

the witch who was swept them or who are convene. If one of them is told you just had a baby girl, his face becomes dark and black with anger. And then when he's in the street in the community, when he's in a community, he starts to duck in high

00:49:21--> 00:49:35

he's walking down the street, he can't walk down the street with his with you know, with with Ana, not with arrogance, and I'm doing I got a daughter had a baby. He's walking down the street hiding behind cars and ducking into the stores in the restaurants

00:49:37--> 00:49:40

and you stop and what's the matter? What's the matter? He said I had a girl

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

Why would you people choose to follow that? And you know this man stand up one to more than that. This man you know him. And that's what happens with the lady and the people that are clean. They put their intellect asleep and they just don't want to use the intellect we

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

Have to blindly follow an Imam Abu Hanifa if we blindly following the Imam Abu Hanifa will be going against the Quran and the Sunnah and will be going against what an Imam Abu Hanifa said, say don't blindly follow me. Don't blindly follow me the human being I get it right I get it wrong, change my position my opinion, but I don't want anybody to misunderstand from that, that we are which he dude and we have an HD house you could just go into any science anything and start getting photos not

00:50:30--> 00:50:58

even say that. But everybody in his own right? He even this little brother right here and this little brother right here in this room right? And their own right. These young brothers have the ability not to make typically someone came to them and say listen, the prophets birthday sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the person start explaining to these three little brothers, there is no proof not in the Quran and Sunnah. Showing you can do the prophets birthday, and the person educates

00:50:58--> 00:51:07

them about it. Someone else comes and says, yeah, there's proof and he starts using is out of context. These little brothers have they been saying Nah.

00:51:09--> 00:51:40

I will back on Earth man, honey, they didn't understand these is the way you're understanding them and you're trying to use them, for me to get on that side. So I'm not going to blindly follow you on that even if you're my dad, or my uncle or my granddad, or my whole tribe, everybody, everybody has the ability and certain issues to make HD hat but then there are issues that are bigger than all of us. So what do we do? We make a Duck leap. So those are the four that Deborah will end today on

00:51:40--> 00:51:48

inshallah if you brothers have any questions you could put your question forward about today's Doris Shala the calendar come shake

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

the hammer cola

00:52:01--> 00:52:03

What's your name? Jose where you from?

00:52:05--> 00:52:12

And to sue Danny that's nice man that you have on mashallah stand the four minute Hussein stand up me

00:52:13--> 00:52:22

check out my man right the scene is rocking that mashallah it's nice man. What's that Turkish guy? name again? That movie with the hat what's his name?

00:52:24--> 00:52:25


00:52:26--> 00:52:31

you just need one of those hats man. Get one of those has go with that could be the man will think

00:52:33--> 00:52:36

for the guy who say nice and light. Sure camera man

00:52:43--> 00:52:44

ah Katya.

00:52:45--> 00:52:46

What do you say?

00:52:52--> 00:53:22

No, no, we don't have any leaders here in the UK. We don't have a Muslim leader. As for the non Muslims, we're in this country. We have to obey the law. We have to obey the rules and the regulations those laws we have to get with that program. But Eliza Jennifer mentioned in the Quran when Nigel carefully I mean in the Sibylla we have not made the non Muslims away over the believers and Olia sister comes into this religion. She comes into this Deen after being a Christian, a Jew.

00:53:22--> 00:53:55

See if a Hindu if her father brothers, uncles don't become Muslims, they're not going to be her only yet. The Imam is going to be the what kill the woody for them because of the deen. So we don't have this here in the Muslim world. We have it in the Muslim world, and North Sudan and Somalia, in different countries, Saudi Arabian Kuwait and Qatar, these places like that. They have a leader and he has his ministers and they have their way of living. Is that the way that the prophets

00:53:57--> 00:54:21

situation was no and that remark and then Abu Bakar not Irma, not Earthman, not it and not not remember that obviously used but then it started getting like that. That's how it is now and the Prophet prophesized that as well. SallAllahu Ani, he will it will send them so we have that in the Muslim world. We had that in certain parts of Africa. Like I mentioned, Sudan, North Sudan

00:54:23--> 00:54:52

Tunis, and the fact that the leaders of these places are sometimes secularist, sometimes the problem there still people make Fisher had to attain and they established a solid, they established the salah Jordan, so we get behind those people and we follow what the Prophet said about them SallAllahu Sallam and we avoid these people who are emotional and they screaming with these emotions make it tick, fear of everybody. Any any other questions for the

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


00:55:19--> 00:55:50

sound of that hadith whoever dies without the bat in his neck, he dies a death of the times of LJ Hibiya. This hadith is actually talking about the people who make hurdled from the leader, who's over the Muslims, and he stays away. And he doesn't want to give the bad. That's what the hadith is really talking about. But this hadith is applicable to us as well, by default, by default, because we're in the West, and we're dying, and we don't have the bayaud over us.

00:55:52--> 00:56:17

But are you blameworthy and not blame Murphy, that's up to Allah, no one should come and use this hadith and be hitting people over the head with it. It's our condition. This is our condition of living in the West and not living in the Muslim world. This is going to be an effect as a result of that. But does that mean you're not Muslim? Does that mean that you're no, that's our condition and it's not nice to be in that condition?

00:56:18--> 00:56:29

That Prophet says Allah Allahu Allah, he was setting them in a birdie on min Cooley, Muslim jam and Mushrikeen I'm free from every Muslim who lives with a non Muslims.

00:56:30--> 00:57:00

So authentic hadith? I'm free from you, buddy. Can someone come in now in the Muslim world and sell all of your kuffaar? Because Prophet Muhammad freed themselves from it? No. That is the prophet showing us the importance of being with the Muslims and living with the Muslims. But some of us we can practice our religion here. We're better off here. Not everybody but some of us as it relates to what you're saying. Some people use this hadith and say so now, in order not to die the death of

00:57:00--> 00:57:26

Ajay Leah in Birmingham. Everybody come and give me the bag of Osama Give me the bag. And this way you won't die the death of a Jamie we say Kela Allah He Kela the bear is there, the bay i is there in order to make unity and bring people together not to divide. You guys go back and you read about one of the great or the Marvel Islam, Abdullah ibn here

00:57:28--> 00:57:31

on our show here, which means to snore.

00:57:32--> 00:57:36

He came into the majilis with the dilemma and he was young.

00:57:37--> 00:58:10

He came into the Maginnis with the cinema, and people will sit in there. And these were the people of virtues and higher. Abdullah bin share here took a seat. Someone from amongst the people sitting there as a man, even a circuit brought this effort in his book, Terry, the mesh, someone from the people sitting there and say, Hey, listen up, listen up. There's a lot of evil going on in this city and we have to do something about it because you know, and I'm gonna put my roof and then we're

00:58:10--> 00:58:25

gonna hide with people of Dawa with people of knowledge got to do with this. So therefore, therefore, I want everybody to give me the Pledge, like a bear the pledge that we're going to work together to take away the money.

00:58:26--> 00:58:42

They said, Okay, so that guy went up to him saying, You got my pledge. You have my pledge. You have my pledge. You have my pleasure. My pleasure. When it came to Abdullah bin Shakir? He said no. Am I giving you a pledge, people got upset. They got upset.

00:58:43--> 00:59:00

One of the animals said Take it easy, take it easy, he has knowledge. What do you have to say? He said I'm not giving anyone any back. Other than the bad that we saw coming from the Quran and the Sunnah every other day as not in our religion.

00:59:01--> 00:59:05

There is a bat if we all gonna go to Mecca, Medina, London.

00:59:07--> 00:59:32

Mo, that's the Mara, the emir, the emir, there is the bat the bear that you gave to the leader of the Muslims and that's it. Or you give the bad to someone who he put as his representative as given bad heavy armored backer and say, so group of our youngsters who go to Birmingham University, they decide let's give the back to the ISOC president this year.

00:59:34--> 00:59:39

And then the other university let's give the bad to him, and then that makes sure let's get the bad let's get this folder.

00:59:42--> 00:59:56

So the scholars wrote about the fit of the bat because it is one of those integral aspects of our religion. You guys know why Imam Malik used to pray with his arms down to the side right you know why right

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


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

Because the leader of his time it has said broke his shoulder, broke his collarbone his shoulder, because he told Al Imam Malik, listen, I want to take your book, I want to take your book, and my worktop and I want to force this book and make it the Constitution for the whole Muslim world. Everybody has to follow your book. Sal Buhari was in fear yet sai Muslim was in De Lima Malik is before them. That was the greatest book of Hadith at that time.

01:00:31--> 01:00:43

There were other there were other books of Hadith, but none of them liked this book of Andy my money. Then he man that leader said, I'm going to do this man saw as suffer.

01:00:45--> 01:01:02

And he may Matic said, No Amuro meaning no, no, no, I don't agree with that. You can't force this book on everybody. And so that and the Emir said, Who ever refuses this? Whoever refuses this, that he's automatically divorced from his wife.

01:01:03--> 01:01:28

They're gonna give the bear on this and whoever refuse automatically He's divorced from his wife. And the man said, No, there is not a single person from the bene Adam. Except that something from the Sunnah has passed him by all of the Sunnis none in my book. So how are you going to blindly follow everything of Le mathematics opinion or Abu Hanifa anyone have?

01:01:29--> 01:01:52

Abu Hanifa doesn't have a book like an EMA Matic. He wasn't like in the melodic and yet the Lima man it said, Hey, there's not a person except the Sunnah passed him by how are you going to make everybody on my book and my meth head, man didn't like that. So we persecuted him, broke his shoulder bone, his collarbone. So he prayed with his hands down like that.

01:01:55--> 01:02:12

People will bring you the Dillio that the Prophet pray with his hands holding the left hand with the right hand. And he said all of the prophets in the messages will order to do that someone brings you that hadith. And you say no, no, no, I'm still gonna follow an Imam Malik that lead going following me my Malik said

01:02:14--> 01:02:27

that's just an example. So the bay i 20 is not for this the bear is for solving problems and solving issues solving problems and solving issues. I want to end familiar.

01:02:40--> 01:03:11

Certain of the Hadith I'm free from every Muslim who lives with the mushroom cane there have a hadith like that as well. Is it a proof that you have to make Hijra as proof that hedger is Mooster hub? That's the least we could say. And as some people it is worship, because the Prophet himself sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allowed his companions to make a trip to Ethiopia and they will go far. They will confer they will now Muslims, so he went. Now he has a hadith that says something Allahu

01:03:11--> 01:03:21

alayhi wa sallam. There is no Hijra after the conquest of Mecca. No more Hijra because everything is Dar Al Islam, dark coffee.

01:03:23--> 01:03:29

A person since we saw that the companions went to Dr. Cofer to save their religion

01:03:30--> 01:03:53

that's from the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim, a person may find himself in a situation, we can practice his religion and his country, and that country may be a Muslim country. So he goes to a place in the earth to practice his religion, but we should do our best to try to be with the Muslim world. But it's an issue that requires Fick where you're gonna go in the Muslim world where you're gonna go,

01:03:54--> 01:03:59

but you don't go somebody tell me where you're going where you're going to make a drone and Muslim or somebody tells me somebody tell me where you go

01:04:04--> 01:04:05


01:04:07--> 01:04:29

you will go to somebody asking you could go to besides So, you go to beside so Mogadishu but even Muggeridge says people you know, the lack of stability, the poverty, there's things that are going those challenges. So I we find our Somali brothers communities coming here, looking for a better way of life, a better way of life, someone said Gambia

01:04:36--> 01:04:38

having me as a place of Baraka,

01:04:40--> 01:04:56

me as a place of baraka and the Gambian president took a very praiseworthy position recently talking about some issues that we don't hear other people talking about leaders talking about. We were impressed with that, but

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

I'm not going to tell anybody that

01:05:00--> 01:05:07

Go to Gambia I'm not going to tell anybody to go to Gambia want to go to Saudi Arabia. How are you going to get any want to go to Kuwait? How are you going to get in?

01:05:09--> 01:05:10

Are you going to get any?

01:05:11--> 01:05:26

So the places with a standard of living are high, and we're used to that standard of living is difficult to get there. Almost impossible. And then the other places where you can go Mauritania, I know somebody who is going to say Mauritania

01:05:28--> 01:05:38

who said that? Yeah, you go to Mauritania. You can learn the religion you become a half and all that stuff like that. But things are happening. I happen to some of the brothers who we know in America,

01:05:39--> 01:05:40

tough stuff.

01:05:42--> 01:06:18

baby dies, because there's no medical stuff. No medical stuff is tough. So the Hadith of the Prophet is clear. We don't want you young brothers throwing yourselves into difficulty, as Allah prohibited that not to be a De Luca, don't just draw yourself with your own hands and physical and Allah cannot be Cumbre Hema, don't kill yourselves. Allah was forever merciful to you. I did send my young budding men and give them enough so it's not permissible for a Muslim to put himself down to

01:06:18--> 01:06:28

dishonor himself to disgrace himself. They say out also Allah, how does the Muslim disgrace himself he says, by putting himself in a situation that he can't handle

01:06:30--> 01:06:42

can handle that walking down the street somewhere, and they were six skinheads coming down his side of the street, and he has his mother, his daughter and his wife.

01:06:43--> 01:06:57

He has enough time to cross the street, get out of harm's way. He gets on the train, and he goes on a train a bunch of football hooligans, soccer hooligans, they drunk, going off on the train screaming, you know, these people don't.

01:06:58--> 01:07:01

He gets on a train. And he says, I'm a mu j.

01:07:06--> 01:07:33

I'm going to make to work on Allah, Allah. No, man, we talking about you getting on a train with your mother, with your queen with your daughter, your princess. You gotta go. Don't even get on that train. Now, if it was 789 of us together, and we have people do mixed martial arts in here we have some real dangerous people in here. Now we get on that train. Now we say wha wha wha?

01:07:34--> 01:07:54

That's a different story. The point is, don't put yourselves down at 20. We joke but this is serious stuff. This is serious stuff. You have a job at Rome. Audi's at Asda. You have a job there. They sell pork they sell comedy. They sell cigarettes. They sell this this this that.

01:07:55--> 01:07:57

Don't quit that job, brother.

01:07:59--> 01:08:05

Don't quit that job. If you have another job lined up, okay, no problem. But don't quit that job right now.

01:08:06--> 01:08:20

Because you're compelled your force. You do your best not to sell that stuff to the people. You do your best. You do your best to avoid that taxi driver. He gets picks up people were at the at the

01:08:21--> 01:08:36

New Street Station at the bus station at ko station at the airport. So he asked to stay in line. 30 minutes, 40 minutes, whatever, whatever. When his turn comes, people get in the car. They say take me to the pup outside of green lane. Masjid take me to the pub.

01:08:39--> 01:08:50

Gonna say nah, I am not going to take you to the pub because yes, haram, I'm gonna take you up. You can't get in my car get out. So you gotta drive and come back around and get in the line again.

01:08:52--> 01:09:18

He says hey, I'm going to the masjid makes hola como Los Alamos che because I wasn't trying to pick this man up to take them to know up. That wasn't my goal, my objective. I worked for the telephone company. They sent me to that pub to fix their telephone to fix the electricity and tell them no, I'm not going to do that and lose my job. Now there are certain things you can't play around with just straight up. And I'm not trying to be one of them. People say everything is highlighted with

01:09:18--> 01:09:58

this allow, still make life unnecessary, unnecessarily difficult for you because the Prophet didn't do that himself. Some Allah He was telling me especially when he was in Mecca, especially when he was in Mecca. He left all of those idols at the masjid. didn't touch a single one of those idols not one until he came back when he was in Mecca. 13 years, one three, and there were almost 365 Idols at Allah's house the cover a Sharif, and he left it because of his condition. They will beat in his

01:09:58--> 01:09:59

companions of killing his companions.

01:10:00--> 01:10:31

No one thinks he just didn't do anything until he had power when he had might. And then he dealt with things in a different way. Okay, when are we going to stop here in sha Allah azza wa jal before I forget, listen, I know the students are real Shy brother, love that shyness in him Ma sha Allah, but I'm really proud of him. I was student our buddy Brahim. He finished his studies through the law and graduated. He did his thing. He was one of the best students. We love for that to happen only

01:10:31--> 01:10:46

reason why I'm telling you that not for anybody to be hating on his program, because I want you guys to give love to him. And I want you guys also to try to duplicate what he did. So I'm going to take you bring him out Shala get him some grub over here at momos

01:10:48--> 01:10:50

and he can pick from amongst you

01:10:51--> 01:11:10

I mean it's smile. I get a smile. Let me bring him his brother mixed up. He can pick from amongst you three other people. Three other people. That's it that said Eva Ismail, three other people All right. Hi, that was a Lola who was setting them robotic. I didn't the beginner wanna it he was having a domain
