before we begin, inshallah I want to
bring to your attention a whiny something that we've fallen short of the mark and dismiss Jade in almost every mistake.
Except those massages that allies with gentlemen has given them the concern, to know the importance of the prayer.
And this is one of the main reasons why our community our man, we have so much drama, it is disturbing and amazing that different dwad want to get before the Muslim community and scream and shout and get agitated and become emotional. And talk about issues that are far removed from the reality of the Muslims. Part of the problems, the reasons that we have all of these issues is the lack of a tomato soup that we have holding on to what we're supposed to be holding on to the correct key that the most important. Many Muslims if you check the IP that we are jammed up, and then the issue of the importance of the Salah,
and on and on and on. But anyway, in this Masjid during the time of the prayer, we have 15 910 different mobile phones going off. If you bring your mobile phone to the message, then it's your responsibility to cut the mobile phone off. Because when you make is if you make noise and you bother the mousseline, your shaytan or your from the helpers have a shift and you're going to be responsible for that human piano. No one should cause to swish problems on anybody who's praying even the kuffar non Muslims, they respect that people want death row, they give them an opportunity to pray before they give them the lethal injection before they shoot them before they do whatever
they do to take the lives. So you want to make your last prayer. And they leave you alone and allow you to have a discussion with your Lord, irregardless of what you worship, because they have respect that respect that this man is praying to his God, whatever you perceive as God is being so the Muslim more than anybody else should be a person who can appreciate that you can't come to the masjid, compromising, compromising the issue of salaat whether it's dealing with any item, or whether it's dealing with the Metallica Prophet told the people salani was Salomon akademin hattingley sheduled attaining a b 13. For that corrupt Miss jidenna anyone who has eaten from these
two filthy trees don't come to our mistake. Don't come to the salaat and those two trees, the onion tree or the garlic, the onion as a vegetable or garlic. And then he told the reason why some of lanie would sell them and he said and and many of the men made them in when Adam because the melodica they are bothered and they are annoyed by the same things that are annoying him Baba Benny Adam.
So when you come to the masjid and you're smelling in a way that's not acceptable, you're bothering them at Attica. You're bothering Benny. Adam, you cannot come to the masjid and bother people. Sometimes we'll find a hottie an email address, Daddy, he's dead. He's tough. He's rough. He wants to make her on those things that a lot didn't make her on. Using that Hadith of the Prophet SAW the love what he was sending them into Chabad the atonement for who among whom? Anyone who resembles a people, he is from those people. So this motor shed that person comes in he says you can't wear a jacket with a tie. It's haram because now Muslims wear that. Yeah, he relaxed you're being shaded.
The jacket and the tie although we won't wear it. Many of us won't wear it wear don't make that haram on people. Because now Muslims are not known. Only they're not only known by that. But one thing that is to ship with the kafar is what we have the Quran telling us
This is an action of the kafar. The sun intelligence. This is an action of the far. And one of the actions of the co founders Allahu taala mentioned in the Quran, womankind of salado, who ended Beatty in lamb cotton with us via the prayer of the polytheist and was really keen at the Kaaba was nothing but clapping hands and whistling. So at the time of prayer, if you come and you're clapping,
you come and you're whisper whistling, you're resembling COVID by the text of the Quran. So we all have these mobile phones going on. And we have the message where the message on the person's phone goes.
And we're praying, not to mention all of the ringtone. So point is, is not the dose. But we hope that the vicar beneficial people come into the mischief there should be Sakina in the mystery before salaat doing the salaat an act of the Salah even after the Salah. He mentioned some a lot when he was setting them in Malacca, to suddenly Allah a deacon, Madonna famous Allahu alayhi Salafi the Malacca will continue to make salad on you after you make your prayer. As long as you sit in your place, you're sitting there the melodica will continuously ask a lot to forgive you and since a lot depends on you, as long as you stay in your place, and you don't lose your will door. So if you stay
in this place for the duration of today's talk, inshallah. Okay, the silence done but you're still in Vicodin. melodica is still making do out for you. So after the prayer, suddenly the people who pray they think that the masjid has turned into a snooker hall or to a football stadium a pitch. So now we start talking and we start raising our voices. And then we come and we wonder why Okay, the world. They are now against the Muslims openly, openly. What that that comes from what if they saw that we were a group of people who are holding on to our religion. We will have a lot of harlot and Ella, who was promised that he would divinely protect us in our religion, but we're compromising the
basic aspects of Islam. So I want to remind you people, the mobile phone is a fitna, these smartphones are fitna in many shape forms and fashions. One of the biggest fitness of the mobile phone is the his eyes and the noise that they cause during the prayer. Learn the eye dive of the message machine is a pays for Sakina mystery is a place for sacred mysteries a place for people to make Toba mystery is a place for people to start to ponder and reflect about everything.
After that, we have my man here Raman, who was brought to me by a brother. He's from the Netherlands. He wants to embrace Islam. And again, I want to repeat that you guys, you meet people want to embrace selling slam you, you you give him the Shahada. Don't bring them to the masjid, you wherever you are, man, woman, Arab, non Arab, whatever use cases, give the person the Shahada right then in there, and give them the Shahada in English without making it complicated. So the man is bought all the way to the masjid, so that Abu sama can give him the Shahada. He should have been had the Shahada already, and if you want to come to pray the senton msgid, and this would have been
something that was more appropriate. Again, this is a problem we're going to come to that inshallah, in our religion, how we're always looking for someone else to do something that we can do for ourselves. And the reward goes back to you. I don't have any special qualities and abilities. I went to a hospital. And I went to visit a particular man after visiting him and leaving the hospital. So another man
gave him salons. I did Rukia on him. After that, I was told that that brother, he was told that he had cancer in his hand.
And then that's when I saw him in the hospital is going through his test. He had cancer in his arm. Then after that, he came out of the hospital. I told him, nope, you don't have cancer. He thought my rookie and me me. I took the kids out of his own.
So I didn't know that. So he told someone, I gave him broccoli and he had cancer. He doesn't have cancer because Abu sama after that some people came to my office, and I saw a group of people want to give me water so that I can do Rukia on the water.
If it is true, that the Rukia that I did help the cancer to go away, then is allowed took the cancer away. Second of all,
does that mean you're not going to do it on yourself now everybody's going to get in line and going
Come in, say Abu Salah Dholakia for me, the Kala doodle PM, your kuduro Qian yourselves. And everybody has the ability to give somebody a listen. So ray is going to tell you to repeat after us very simply, very easily. You just say after me You say openly bear witness
that there is no god
worthy of worship
except Allah. And I'd be a witness openly that Mohammed, the son of Abdullah of the Arabian Peninsula,
a mecca is the Messenger of Allah
and the Prophet of Allah
and the slave of Allah. And I bear witness that Jesus Christ.
Slow down, relax, okay.
See, I've witnessed that Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Messenger of Allah is the Messenger of Allah and the son of Mary,
and the word from Allah and the word of Allah and the spirit from Allah. And I bear witness that the Hellfire, the Paradise is true.
I bear witness that the Paradise is true.
And the Hellfire is true.
With this, Raymond, you have become a Muslim, and we welcome you into Ellis lamb. And we encourage you to stay around the people who are balanced in their religion. And God bless you, man. Congratulations, man. bodek Luffy. So any brothers who are from the Netherlands, you have something in connection and relationship with his brother. So give him some love and do your best try to help to develop him and go to be him? On the religion? Okay, my memory. You're welcome. In particular,
as it has been announced the honey, they caught this talk today.
Um, Donald Trump with Donald Trump or something like that. And I think that that title has caused a great multitude of people to come to the MSG because we're eager to hear Abu sama blast Donald Trump.
I'm not here to blast Donald Trump.
But I'm here to make a point he shot lies with general doubt, Donald Trump is a trial and tribulation, not just for the Muslim community, but for the whole world. But as relates to our communities specifically. And up until this point, we have seen a lot of evil. And we've seen an increase in Islamic phobia with people are afraid of us and they have xeno phobia, because people are different from us. Tomorrow in Sharla, up and down this country, there is an initiative that the Muslim Council of Britain came up with, called visit my mosque, in different ministries up and down the country who signed up for that. They're going to welcome non Muslims into the masjid, so as to
give the non Muslims a bird's eye view as to who we are, what we believe in, what we don't believe in,
so that the community
will not be afraid of us. And they won't move based upon ignorance.
That's our religious Islamic duty, an obligation that we allow people who are around us to know what is the reality of our religion, and we don't leave it up to the media, to play games, to make people afraid of Islam. And they're going to do that they'll continue to do that. But one of the good things that happened with Donald Trump is that that's becoming clear to non Muslims who were asleep before. The way he connects Islamic terrorism, the way he is trying to deal with the Muslims, only people who have hearts and people who have common sense they can see it is not fair. There are some decent non Muslims in the world, good non Muslims in the world hamdulillah who stand up for justice,
they stand in solidarity with people who will press so this has, in a positive way, shed light on the reality of the bigots and the racists but as an Obama, we should know that everything that happens to us it happens for a reason and our religion, our religion has the answer. This is a fitna that we're dealing with. And I have to bring this to your attention because the problem what happened in Quebec, Quebec, Canada, I find it disturbing that Donald Trump can't come and say we want to acknowledge that this is true.
racism and we give you people our condolences and we're sorry for what happened he won't even do that. He won't even do that. It's not It's not nice, shows you the nature of the individual and the reality of the individual that can't even acknowledge that is a fitna. But our religion shows us how to navigate and how to deal with all of these issues. We don't deal with it based upon our emotions. We deal with it based upon knowledge. Allah mentioned in the Quran, masaba Kumasi button fill URL de la femme fusi, calm LFC keytab in kabillion abraha Nana can ally yessir there is no catastrophe, normal Siva, normal Siva, that happens to you people in the earth all within yourselves, except that
it was already written in the book, the low unmuffled before it even came out. And this is something that is easy for a lot the kaylah. So no matter
what a tough Rahu Bhima attacco will love hula, you bucola Matalan for her.
And this benefit of Eman in the other areas so that you don't become sad. As a result of something that missed you pass you by. You wanted the job. You wanted to marry the girl but it fell through it didn't happen didn't work. It was something you really want it. But somehow you couldn't grab it.
The benefit of the other is the Muslim says it wasn't for me. If it was for me, it would hit me. And if it's not for me, it's not going to hit me. So when something bad happens, he doesn't overthink and he doesn't fret and he doesn't cry over spilt milk. He just keeps it going. And also, if he were to get something that is good and he liked it, he came into some wealth. He was able to get a nice car. He was able to get something that people like and they covered it is the cutter and man and cutter that makes that person say look this thing happened because a lot wrote this thing for me so that you don't go overboard and you don't become arrogant. And that's why the last part of the IRA
the IRS said will love hula you have bought more talent for hoard a lot doesn't love those people who are bracket Lee and the arrogant because of the things that they had. So the share hitmen habit. The point of that can is this masiva is a masiva that has already been written and from the benefit of it, it's analyzer gentle wants to see how we're going to deal with it, how the individuals of this home are going to deal with it. How are the leaders of the Muslims going to deal with it? We're going to be people who take the keytab in the sun to navigate through these issues. The reality of what I wanted to talk to you about and it was connected to Donald Trump, but it is not about Donald
Trump, but it is connected to him was an issue and is an issue that I want to bring to your attention. And that is this issue of the so called handicapped people who are in our community and who have been created Donald Trump, as you know, he liked that a lady that was handicapped and he ridiculed and mocked her while giving a lecture Who does that? Who does that?
our children, our children, if they were to laugh at someone who walked with a limp, or someone who stands instead of us and our religion, when it comes to the handicapped people, the so called handicapped people with special needs. Our religion has come with a lot of cam, a lot of ad dat do's and don'ts, a lot of what we should know about showing and proving that Islam has dealt with everything we mentioned in the Quran, Lisa? Allah, Allah
will either live in a laggard, you're doing a manual, una hora de una vida, nessa hula, he was truly, there is no blame on those who are weak, because they have special needs. Maybe the challenge intellectually, they don't have an arm, they don't have two arms, they don't have a leg, they don't have half of a leg.
They don't have the mental faculties. Allah said there's no blame on them. Nor is there any blame on the one who was sick. And there's no blame on the one who doesn't have the wealth, to go out to spend in the cause of a lot to defend the religion in the correct way. There's no blame on them. As long as they are sincere to learn his messenger that's from the act of people with so called handicaps person in the wheelchair. He's not expected to go out and get down a lot by going from this place to that place in a wheelchair. There's no harm and from those rules and regulations is the permissibility of laughing and mocking people, someone know someone else that has a serious case
stuttering yet the Tata rueful, kedem. He stutters, that's a so called handicap.
And if a person grows up with it, and people are laughing, and we know people very difficult for the man to express himself, you have to listen to him. Sometimes, we tried to finish his sentence. If people laugh at him, and people not patient with him, he can grow up with and hooked up with a complex. And then he develops in the management skills, because from a young age, people laughed at him when he tried to express himself. So when he becomes an adult, he's a problem. It's a problem for his wife is a problem for his child. Allahu taala. mentioned in the Quran. Yeah, he will live in Amman lie Yes, her comb and comb. I sang yaku Hyun min Oh, you believe don't allow some of you to
laugh and mock at other people, because those other people may be better than the ones who are mocking them. So the point here is, he is a man who in front of the whole world did an action that was so mature, and juvenile, that it shows the incompetence of individual mark in that individual. So we want to say is here, and what we wanted to share with you here is the fact that none of us want to be handicapped. None of us, no one, when he gets married, if it is said to him, you're going to have a child and that child is gonna have some special needs gonna come out with one leg missing one arm missing, he won't be able to talk or this or that. He's gonna have a cleft palate. We're
going to say I don't want that if I know if I can avoid that. I would avoid that no one wants to be like that. So how would he accept that? And that's reality right now. He's handicapped right now, as he's sitting right here.
But in terms of how they describe people with handicaps, he doesn't see himself as handicapped, but he is handicapped.
This word handicapped, really whiny is a word that should not be used. It's not politically correct. And we live in a time when we have to be sensitive to what we should be saying and what we shouldn't be saying we shouldn't call people handicap, because the real handicapped person is the first point. Their real handicap person is the one who is not using his eyes, his ears, his mental capabilities to do the right thing.
The one who doesn't do that, use these gifts from Allah to do the right thing. This is the one that is handicapped in Ellis land.
As for the one who doesn't have eyes to see, he doesn't have ears to hear, but he makes the right decisions, especially the decision of submitted to lie is not considered to be handicap. So there's something that our religion tells us a lot said in the Quran about disbelievers have coloration other than them, he described them and he said about them, some Bookman, Iranian falaj origin, they are deaf, dumb and blind. So therefore they're never going to return. They're never going to turn return from their covenant, their ship and their keyboard and the volume in their fist. We're never going to turn away from that. Because the deaf, dumb and blind. But Abdullah hub in Abuja, Helmand
people this ayah was revealed because of them. They had eyes, they had ears and they had an intellect but they didn't use it the right way. And meaning is give us that lesson. what occurred Barra da da Johanna ma Catherine managing well en la home Kowloon life tahuna, Bihar Wella Whom are you know la you will see Runa Bihar when our home than la yes Marina Bihar la kill an am balloon above Allah.
Allahu Allah mentioned very early we have prepared for many jinn and many mankind many of the jinn and many of those for mankind. We are prepared for them a grievious punishment in the hellfire. Why? Because they have hearts that they don't reflect with. They have minds. They don't use their minds. They have eyes, they don't use to see those with those eyes. They have ears, they do not use those ears to listen. They are like the cattle. Allah said instead, they are worse than the cattles and that's because they are futile. So the handicapped person is not the one who doesn't have eyes is not the one who can hear. He's the one that has all of that, but he doesn't use it correctly for in
that time and absorb what I can terminal polu bility for pseudo barely it is not the eyes that are blind. But what is blind
is the hearts that are in their chest. So the point I want to make
Hear honey, as it relates to this man whose name has been mentioned more times, and it should be mentioned in the cost of our day, this man has proven to the world that he is the biggest handicapped person.
And he's handicapped because he doesn't use his eyes to see the reality that the differences of people's colors and religions shouldn't cause you to have animosity and hatred towards those people. And you shouldn't encourage other people from the general public to be nasty and mean towards them to the point where some of these other handicap ignorant people will go into a mosque into a Masjid and shoot people while they're praying for no other reason, except that they're Muslims, their ethnic background or their religion. It's not okay for Muslim to do that. It's not okay for Christian to do that. A Jew will handle your person who's uncivilized, you're crazy, something's
wrong with you. You will Majnoon if you think that Ellis lamb, or any religion in the world allows a person to do that. So for you to be responsible for the so called free world, and this is the way your policies are, then you are a big handicap person. I don't think there's a single Muslim sitting here and alone knows best, except that he doesn't like the image of what Donald Trump is showing us after being the president for this short time. I don't think there's any Muslim, except that the vast majority of us collectively don't like his policies. We don't like what he stands for. He's a bigot. He's a racist. He's my he's is an individual who is a megalomaniac all kinds of issues.
Everybody will agree with that. We have eyes and ears and intellect to identify that.
But some of us are blind to the fact that we are like Donald Trump, when it comes to our own racism.
We have races from amongst us right here. And that's the meaning of weird Donald Trump.
And in our community, not everybody, not everybody, but in our community because of the environment that we live in. Because of our cultures, because of what our coaches teach us and our parents teach us. And because of us, given our minds to popular culture, we grew up hating people because of the color there's a problem here in Greenland. And I must say,
I know that there is racism in our community because the Prophet said that Southern lava it was seldom the latter two min, Moodle J. havia. lanta, truco Mati Aveda, there are three things from the affairs of the time the JVM will never abandon them. And one of them, he said was that you will talk bad about other people's lineage, and you'll talk good about yours, and you'll be proud about where you came from. So the Prophet told us that so a lot of them, so I believe it. But I didn't experience racism here in green lane.
But in traveling and live in green lane, I've been in places where people have shown me blatant racism, where they thought they're better than me, because I'm African American. And they're Arabs.
They even said, without any shyness, that I was a slave.
And they believe that. And I'm just giving you my own experience, I'm sure all of you have experienced, it's just not about people from Africa, or people of black, and black is beautiful, irregardless of what Donald Trump says. And also White is beautiful. And yellow is beautiful, and red is beautiful. And you have to buy into that what's ugly, was ugly, is the mind of the races, the one who thinks he's better than someone else, because of his color. That is, that's junoon That's crazy. Now with the hood and the nesara with the Sikhs, and the Hindus is ugly with them, but understand their situation they have racism in their religion, that you hold believe that they are
allies, chosen people. The Christians believe Jesus Christ is the son of Allah and they gave us an image of a white man, a Caucasian man, and that's not consistent with the reality and this is what we always have to be careful of Islamic terrorism, you're anti semitic and anti semitic, it means you're against a Jewish nation when Arabs are Semitic as well.
It's not even true to say he's anti semitic and Semitic only means Jewish people. They play all of these games with us with these words, terrorists and so forth so on, but the point is, and their religions is ugly, racism is ugly, but I understand it because
is in the religion is in what they believe the God that they believe in. He's a particular color. So he's better than everybody else that color in my opinion. That's how I look at it. And the Jews have no no apology and saying that they are allies, chosen people, Sikhism, Hinduism, that's how it is with many of the people but in Ellis land, no one can come no one no [???]. No one can come and show us in the Quran and the Sunnah, where racism is condoned no one and that's why racism with the Muslim is more uglier. When you find the Muslim racist, he's the ugliest one is more ugly than Donald Trump. Donald Trump, what does he know about divine revelation? So this person who has a
connection to the religion, his nebbia in his Rasul Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told the people love fidella Lee Arabi II Jimmy 11 taqwa there is no virtue given to the Arab over the non Arab except with taqwa. So I want to make that point. And that's what the meaning of this thing is. That man is handicapped because he got it and he doesn't use it. He as he is, he doesn't use Okay, we all can see that he's a racist. But we can see the racism in our own selves. So when we're going to stop the racism, and again, I want to repeat, it's just not against black people. Arabs are racist towards each other people. Pakistani Afghan is Bangladeshis races between themselves. Africans are racism,
their own selves. People come from the same country, their racism amongst them all themselves. The Arabs in the Arabian Gulf, are racist towards the Arabs who are not from the Arabian Gulf. The Arabs who are in North Africa are racist towards Africans or another parts of Africa is a disease of Jamia and Donald Trump doesn't have a monopoly on it.
Something that we have to the point where the son or the daughter, they want to marry a decent person from another culture from another tribe from another color, like this brother, Ray. He knows a girl, he wants to marry that girl. And we wanted to make sure he's not coming to Islam just for that. But if he came into Islam, and that was part of what his motivation was, as long as we get a good feeling he's going to stay in his van, no problem. Almost two lane road, the olana, one of the tremendous companions of the Prophet sallallaahu setting them was axed to marry, I will tell her from the answer. She said No way. You will mushrik and Amina muslimah, and is not permissible. But
if you say la ilaha illa Allah, I'll make that my diary. He said la either hired Allah and became a Muslim because of that proposition from that lady. And they got married. And he made his Islam good as a result of that. Now, we're not just going to marry a guy to a girl. And we know that all he wants to do and he's not going to practice them. It just goes to the formalities not going to do that if we can help it. But the point here is something that it is permissible. So a girl can't marry the boy. And they're the best people for each other. Because the parents are racist. We have Shabaab going through that right now in our community right now. We insist they can never marry
those people. That's number one. Another characteristic honey and from the benefits of this man coming from the benefits of him coming, because it may be that you hate something and it is a lot of good. There is not an iron
from this man's presidency right now. I'm one of those is learn not to be like those people. Don't be a racist. Also, the massage any of this man, the surgeon is when men, they believe they're better than women, to the degree that the woman doesn't have anything to say. She's like a piece of furniture. She's like, a human being that doesn't have any rights. So here it is, this man has clearly shown he has a very low value for women. And men, these people are going to come and tell us our religion is like that. Because Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, married, Isha, when he married our Isha salallahu alayhi wasallam. So many things happened and transpired in that marriage
through their lives that clearly showed that was a marriage literally made in heaven made in heaven. Because jabril came and informed him sallallahu wasallam you're going to marry our Isha brought her to him on a plate and the prophet SAW her salon and said a marriage mean in heaven. And while they were living here, many things happening like the nibio Salatu was salam, giving her an opportunity to get out of the marriage, as he gave the opportunity to all of his wives.
If you want to stay, you can stay. And if you want to go, I'm gonna give you enough money you can go freely. First one he went to was I Isha. He went, he said, I'm going to tell you something. And I want you not to be too quick in making a decision. But ask your mother and your father about it what you should do. But I'm giving you the opportunity, because the ayah was revealed. If you want to stay, you can stay, if you want to go, I'll give you money, I'll set you up. She said also less would you want to ask me and say yes, that's what I want to ask you. That's what you wanted me to go back to my mother, my father for advice. He said, Yes. She said, I don't need to ask my mother and
my father for any advice I want to learn is messenger. And once in the Hereafter, if she was unhappy, she didn't want to be in the marriage, that was an opportunity to get out of the marriage.
So in this religion, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam brought a religion that gave women the rights as for Muslim individuals, Muslim men, the parents of those women, for example, as for the culture, then yes, we have a lot of problems. We have misogyny in our community. misogyny, the girl has no keema, no Manzella. For an example. She can't marry the one she wants to marry. She has a nice decent voice she wants to marry, he comes from a good family, the family says no. And instead, they force her to marry someone that she doesn't want to marry in 2017, we're still dealing with this issue. So the person is blind, he's handicapped. Why can you identify the racism of Batman, his
misogynistic behavior, you can identify that, and those things that he said about women, you can see that within yourself, you can't see it. within your own culture, you can't see it.
And when is it going to stop?
And we can go on and on and on with those examples, the contradictions, this executive order, in which in the middle of everything, he just says, Okay, we're going to stop people who come from these seven countries is going to stop them without studying the thing. without listening to advisors. How many of us make silly decisions, and you never studied? You don't know what you're talking about. But you're opinionated, especially for our youngsters. Because with the social media, anything that you watch on social media, every armor backer, Zayd, everybody could come and give his opinion about what he thinks about that video good or bad. And the way we talk, the way we behave is
No, the Muslim is an individual. He takes advice from people, he listens to advice. It's not one of those people who thinks that he's a lone wolf. And he's living this life, every decision that he wants to make, he's just going to make the decision without looking at how is it going to affect an impact on others. He's not a person of contradictions. The Muslim is not a person of contradictions. He'll give a ruling to these people over here, and a different ruling for these people over here. And they have the same things apply. So we may say that these seven countries or the seven countries are afraid these people going to do terrorism against America. As you all know, we've come to see
the hypocrisy of what's going on. Why is it that you don't stop those other countries, where, according to you has been proven, these people who have harmed American citizens and terroristic acts is because they double standards. And it's not about them being afraid of those countries. And this is not about a talk of being political. There's a talk of us being religious and not being like those people. So as it relates to handicaps in Al Islam, we don't want to use that word to describe people anymore, especially those people from our community. But what we want to do is we want to give them their hopes of being a person that has special needs, and Ellis land, doesn't put you on
the margins of society slam doesn't marginalize those people, as you'll see from the prophets companion Salalah. What he was sending them were a number of companions, a lot of them that had these special needs of the so called handicaps from them was the companion who was one of the 10 people promise Jenna, his name is dull, ha even rubedo la radi Allahu anhu. On the day of boyhood, he was protecting the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And someone came to hit the nebby with his sword, and this man came in the front of the sword, put his arm up, and they hit his arm, cut his arm, and then his arm became paralyzed, can never use it after that. He spent the rest of his life without
being able to use his arm.
And so we got down on his knees, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam stood on his back in order to get on a higher
ledge, a rock so as to flee from the non Muslims who will come and act in. He got up on his back and he was able to get on the higher plateau. So the Prophet mentioned Salah lady was sending them many a Hadith, talking about the monastic and the Fatah, el the virtues of tala even obey the law, and the paralysis that he suffered as a result of what happened on the day of or her or of the alignment. Another man, as you all know, he became paralyzed for disobeying the prophet SAW the light he was sending him,
he became paralyzed because he was a left handed man. And he used to use his left hand and not his right hand because he was lefty, that's what he was used to. So for you, young brothers, you young sisters, some of you use your left hand naturally, and you don't use your right hand you write with your left hand, you're more powerful with your left hand. Allah created you like that. And unlike what we used to believe, and what they still say, they say, left the people are the children of the devil. We don't believe that in Al Islam as for effect, left handed people are the sons and the daughters of Benny Adam of Adam. That's just how it goes. But anyway, the man was eating with his
left hand, the hand that shows in order to clean yourself.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave him advice and told them eat with your right hand.
Instead of the man saying God also live fine trouble eating with my right hand brother came to visit me the other day, and I gave him food with a spoon. Because I only eat with a spoon, I can't eat with a fork, and I can't eat with my hands. If I eat with my hands, the rates gonna be all over the place. So my family's gonna know that I eat somewhere else by just looking at my clothes because I eat with my right with my hand, food all over. I want to eat with the fall. This brother is lefty, and he is with his right hand. But what I gave him the fork, the spoon, he didn't want to be a bad guest. So he was trying to eat with a spoon with his right hand. But it was not easy for him.
Because he's not righties lefty, if anything, you'll be able to control the spoon his left hand as opposed to manner, he told me the story. So I mean, go ahead, just eat with your right hand. No problem. So if a person when he told him eat with your right hand, if the man has said, yada sudwala I find trouble because I'm left handed. The province of Southern would tell him something else. But instead of saying that, he said, I can't eat with my left hand. He was defined when the Hadith comes to him. When the Hadith, the Sunnah, the Koran, the truth, the person is defiant. The religion tells him do this or don't do that. He says, I'm not going to listen to that. I'm going to do it the other
way. They call it the turret. He is he is in opposition of the truth.
I last prophet told him no, you have the ability to do it. The narrative of the head, he said at that moment, just like that, his hand became paralyzed.
And that's in accordance to the Hadith of the Prophet or the Isle of the Quran. folia della Dini, Holly foon, Anna Marie, and to see them fitna to know you see them adapalene that each and every person beware that they will be afflicted with a fitna or they will be afflicted with a grievous punishment. When they go against the command of the prophets on the law. what he was saying, it's one thing at whiney, to make a mistake or to make a sin and you know that you're doing that mistake or your sin. And you say stuck for the law. No, I'm just being weak right now. But it's another thing for the person to be strong and wrong about it at the same time, from his companions, there
were many, many many, but I do want to mention these few to you that you may not have known Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had a lot of companions who had suffered from blindness, a lot of them now 1234 510 a lot. And from them was one of the 10 people promise Jenna, sad, even Abby will cause from them is poet has a blue tablet, from them, his uncle, Allah bass from them, his cousin, and the son of his uncle Abdullah live now bass became blind from them, caribou Malik, one of the three people who didn't go to the battle to book and then he was boycotted, and then Allah gave him so he has a tremendous place in Ellis that I will Sofia and ebonheart. Many of those companions roughly
align him. They had these so called handicaps, but they were from the Olia of Allah. So not being able to see being blind doesn't mean that the person doesn't have Bulsara can have knowledge. And it can be a virtuous person, the companion algebra as a BA
All of them. And other than them even from the women, there was a woman from the companions, roughly a lion, and her name is aronia. That lady was a slave. And they used to persecute her. And to the point where she became blind, she lost her sight
because of her religion.
A persecutor her until she lost her sight and became blind. She was one of the many people that Abu Bakar of the Alliance who used his wealth, purchased her freedom, and let her go.
So we had a lot of companions who would like that in front of them, the one that everybody knows about the companion, his name is Abdullah Al Maktoum. He was the second one Billa was the first and he was the second, may Allah be pleased with all of them. And in order to be them, and then that is a job where you have to have the Amana and the Deanna, the Muslims are not going to allow anybody just to be the more evident, he has to know what he's doing. And he has to be a good person in the community because he is representative of the community. So that individual, may Allah be pleased with him, he was given the responsibility of making the event and also another in addition to that
acquainting, if prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa it was setting him chose to be even Medina, he left this man in charge of the community, and he was blind. And that goes to show that blind people are not marginalized in our religion, that man, he was the Amir, in the absence of Lucifer, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So people with special needs and our religion, they have rights, not one right that rights from the rights you know, these Hammamet a como como la these bathrooms right here, there is a bathroom for the handicap, so called handicap, don't use it. It's not for you.
It's for the person that has the issue. So when you use it, and he has to wait, it's not fair. The parking that's been designated for people with special needs, whether it's in the best shape, whether it's in Morrison's across the street, now, you just got a dash in and out of Morrison, but it's bigger than that. Bigger than that.
That's not your place. That's the place of a person, place of a person that in this religion, he's been given a Manzella that we have to look after one of the companions, he complained to the Prophet sallallaahu send them about what was happening between him and being responsible for a person like this from his family members, or soul. I taught him and taught us a tremendous lessons and a lot he would sell them. And he said, Well, how to serve on our tours upon a libido alpha eco? And do you people find victory? And do you find an increase in your risk, except as a result of the weak ones that are with you? So those of you who your uncle, your auntie, your grandmother, your grandfather,
your mother, your father, but those people Oh, then they see now they got Alzheimer's? And you're responsible for them? That's your mother's father, your father's mother, whatever the case is? Some of us treat them in a way it's not right. It's not right. The head he said, You people are provided for because of those people. So he has to take his mother, his grandmother, his own child's child has some issues. One eye is going over there. And the other is going over there. The head is bigger than normal. The child has deformed whatever takes his child to the GP to the hospital, and he's embarrassed to sit in the waiting room with that individual with that relative. That one was really
man. And he knows that Eliza gel created this individual for a reason like that. And yo kiama this thing is not going to be there for that person that's a Ratna for that person actually. So Rama, because Yokoyama when that individual goals to the agenda, he won't be like that. But it's also a test for you. So the one who has a man and he understands these issues. He's not embarrassed that people are looking at this person from his family who's been afflicted with this trial with this tribulation.
Instead, he says, the risk that I get comes from him the nozzle and the help that I get comes from him. There was another lady from the companions gotta tell you about this lady, is her name is inside of Bukhari and Muslim bodied, said the lady was a black lady. I was shocked. I read something recently, on Facebook, a guy is from the Nation of Islam, the Nation of Islam. They have just as much to do with Islam as the word terrorism has to be connected Islamic terrorism. What are you talking about Islamic terrorists, what are you talking about?
What are you talking about the Nation of Islam. Those people have nothing to do with Islam other than the name Islam. But anyway, they are racists, they do counter racism. You know, they flip it the other way, Christianity, they show white superiority, so they want to show black superiority. And the guy has a PhD in history. And he wrote all of this stuff proving and showing Prophet Mohammed was black. All of the companions were black, everybody was black. And then the Muslim who's African American, the Muslim moves from Afro, Afro Caribbean background, he's a real Muslim. He sees the racism in the West with the Muslims. When he reads something like that. He says, yes. Prophet
Muhammad was black. I knew it.
Yeah, he you're ignorant.
You're ignorant problem. Mohammed wasn't blind sallallahu it was senator. And that stuff can be pushed away and dealt with so easy. It's not even like a difficult task. But anyway, inside of Bukhari and Muslim,
the narrative the Hadith describe this lady as being a black lady. And if everybody was black, it would be no reason to describe her as being black if everybody was black.
The lady the other lady used to sweep the message in and she died. And someone said, Where's that lady? They said, there was a black lady that used to sweep domestic but so said, Where's that lady? If everybody was black, they wouldn't have, they wouldn't have wasted time to pull that out.
Obey your leader, even if he is an Ethiopian slave with raising raising heads, you know, the way our hair is, those of us who have here, if you don't call me, it'd be like filthy like peppers, some of us. He said, obey your leader, even if he is from Ethiopia as a reason meaning even as if he's a black man, because the Arabs won't tolerate that that racism that they had back then. Why would the Prophet say that Salatu was and if everybody was black, he would have said something like, obey your leader. Even if he looks like cotton.
Obey your leader. Even if he looks like the clouds in the sky. It says something like that. Why would he say something that is already prevalent? The man blue and Hawaii Sierra, the father of the Hawaii bridge, they said he grabbed the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and squeeze his shirt, when they let it go, they can see the red Whoa, on his neck. Not gonna see that. If someone's color is done too many examples when he makes such subtle it was and they said he has to open up his arms that we can see the whiteness and his arms. When he makes alarms like this, those on the left can see the whiteness of his cheek.
So with knowledge, honey, we learn how not to be pieces of paper that just get blown here and there. That lady she came in say Jada some lives suffer from epilepsy, severe epilepsy.
We suffer from epilepsy, you can bite your tongue, you can swallow your tongue. You can lose consciousness and fall, crack your head die just like that. Driving a car, you have an epileptic fit, anything can happen. She said I suffer from severe epilepsy. Make dua you make dua to Allah for me. He told us a little love what he was sending them in shipped out to lucky when she submitted for the cultural agenda. If you want, I will make dua for you. I'll do it. But if you want to be patient, and you'll go to Jenna, she said, Okay, I'll be patient and epilepsy. I don't know if you know someone with epilepsy, but it is not a nice sight to see them on the ground, having those
seizures. It is scary. If you see it's not a nice sight.
She said, I'll be patient with that. But rasulillah when I have my epileptic fits, I take my clothes off because of what's going on. The way I'm moving. I'm not in control of my movement. So I come out of my clothes. She said make dua to Allah that I don't do that. And he made do I talk to a lot that that didn't happen. It's It is important and when he is showing that what I'm trying to tell you, there were many companions, they had
special needs, read the alignment. And it showed that here here
Don't be quick to go to people to ask people to make dua for you. Don't be like that.
Don't be quick to go to people that make Rokia for you. Don't be like that. Do your own Rokia. Everybody here memorize Surah Fatiha we buddy a memorize Paulo I had anybody here memorize something from the Quran. read the Quran yourself in
Save your money. Instead of giving your money to these people who they may be good, they may be good, but you may be better.
So he was teaching that lady and teaching the community sallallahu alayhi wa sallam varady alone. Don't be of those people listening to any recital, I used to take the baby out and used to do many different things. He said to the companions, would you people not Give me the bag? They're about 70 people give me the bag. They said, Yes, we'll give you the bag. He repeated it. He said, Would you not give me the bag? They said, Yes, he was gonna give you the band the Pledge of Allegiance. He said, Will you not give me the bag? Three times? They say yes, yes, they all put their hands out. Well, what do you want us to give you the bag for?
He told him some love what he was sending them by Rooney, Allah, Allah test Aloo add in Shea.
Give me the beta, that you will not going to ask anybody to do anything for you.
You're not going to ask anyone to loan you money. You're not going to ask anyone to come and help you with this. You're not going to ask anyone to help you with that. You're not God.
The narrative that had he said, I saw from those 17 people, whenever you see one of them, they refuse to ask people other things. If one of them was on his horse, and the salt or the whip that he used to make the horse move. If it fell out of his hand, he wouldn't say hey,
I'm 50 I'm 60. I'm 70 Hey, hey, you young man. 15, you you come pick this up and give it to me, please, he wouldn't do that. He will get off of his horse and pick it up. And that's because the one as he says some a lot of what he was saying the ihsaa of a Muslim is in his Step nine and nice. The power, the nobility, the honor of the Muslim is when he doesn't need other people. Like right now.
If the Muslim world had the exam, the Muslim leaders had they,
they can collectively do something about Donald Trump.
They can collectively and we all know that all of us, all of us. And it's easy for that diary to say, why aren't the Muslim leaders doing this? Why are Muslims leaders doing that? Why Why? Yeah, I think that's true to a certain degree. But why is it that we can use our eyes and our ears and our intellect to identify that problem with them? But I can't use those same eyes to see that I'm not independent from the cathartic welfare from them. And I don't have to, why am I blind today?
Why can I see the the splinter in his eye, I can identify the splinter, the little piece of wood in his eye, when in my own eyes is a big lock. We don't want to be like those people. Those people who see everything wrong with the world and everybody else in the world, and they don't see anything wrong about themselves. So that lady may allow her to be pleased with her and pleased with all of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. I mean a lot to be pleased with us as well. So we could talk about many examples of this man that we have seen come to the forefront. All we wanted to do today was to give you brothers and sisters some insight into these issues if we tried to
comprehend them, and we tried to understand them by getting sick from the TV and the news and these people were going to be confused. And it's going to affect our E man. And it's going to affect our Islam. And we're going to have a bad opinion about a lot what they call Sue than
we are to have personally been about Allah we have to believe Allah knows what he's doing.
Prophet Mohammed told us about this other lady was telling them not to comb Asara. Hector takuna dunya. Lee look abney Luca, the yomo qiyamah is not going to be established until the dunya belongs to a man by the name of Luca, Luca.
That's a fictitious name is not a real person. It's a person that the Arabs used his name to signify and denote an incompetent person, an ignoramus. So the dunya is going to be controlled by people who are incompetent. People who you would think like, you know, there are some people who are leaders of the country. And you can see that they're intelligent people, they listen, they are not by themselves, they, they they seem like they know what they're doing. We may not agree with what they're doing, but they are politicians. And this individual doesn't seem like he has a clue as to how to govern people. So when we look at all of these things that are going on, we have to look at
The backdrop of our religion so my call to management to you all, don't you and I us, let us not be like the Donald Trump's of the world with all of those negative qualities that guy has. So again in concluding his talk is not for politics, and these are my own views. No one else shares these views. I just thought it would be a good opportunity to say to you that our religion has taught us how to deal with all these issues. It's just a matter of learning and a matter of implementing. Now if you brothers have any questions, I will I will take questions for 510 minutes something like that if a candidate to come so we could put your question forward Baraka and in the cache
and in the cache
Okay, bear witness No one asked me question but then as I'm walking out everybody want to ask me the question doesn't make any sense. I can understand this dynamic. You guys have any questions?
Okay, now okay. No problem. barnacle are freaking awesome. Like they couldn't have it was a little low. Send them robotic. I'm in a big Nevada and he was Javi. Germaine saw that. from Belgium.
you handle that?
