Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear brothers and sisters,
it was the 27th of the month of Ramadan
that the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was in a cave, some three miles north of the city of Mecca.
In the Hari Hara, subsequently to be known as Javelin move the mountain of light.
He was in this cave.
And on that night, the angel of God comes to him
and commands him in his mother tongue in Arabic,
which means read, or proclaim or recite,
and the Holy Prophet sallallahu Sallam being learned, naturally, he responds, he says, Ma, an avatar and he said, I'm not learned. So the angel of God commands him a second time if Torah,
meaning again read or recite or rehearse. And the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam again, pleads with the angel in terror. It says Monogatari that I'm not loving. For the third time, the angel of God embraces him hard and says, this mirrabooka levy Halak, so read in the name of the Lord and cherisher, who created now the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he grasps that what was required for him to do was to repeat, because this Arabic word, Torah means to read, to recite, to rehearse, to repeat. So he repeated
Arabic Allah The Hallock reading the name of the Lord and cherisher who created the Holocaust in Santa May Allah say he who created men from a mere plot of congealed blood faces Allah Collinson, Amin. allok, secara bukal Akram is read and the Lord is most bountiful and it's a cara bukal Akram salovey. Allah my bill column says he who taught the use of the pen says Allah Allah, Bill Kalam, Allah MA in Santa Monica lam yalom says thought man that wish she knew not and it says allemaal in Santa marlim Yala. These were the first five verses that were revealed to an obeah Kareem sallallahu Sallam in that era.
Immediately, the angel disappeared. The Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam shivering all over sweating, he runs home, some three miles south, to Mecca, and to his dry momineen Khadija to Cobra, and he says, cover me up, cover me up.
And she covered him up. When he got out of his excitement. He explained to her what he had seen and what he had heard, because those words made indelible impression on his heart and mind. He could never let go, they were so to say like groomed into his mind.
And he feared that what had happened was that something has gone wrong with him. We talk about other people, he said, who go mad who are possessed. And perhaps something similar has happened to me.
Our mother means a digital Cobra, she assures him that Allah will not allow such a thing to happen to him. And she takes him to her cousin Baraka, who had learned the scripture of the Jews and the Christians. And
she assured him that Allah has chosen him as a prophet. And if he were alive, this man was blind Baraka that if he were alive, you know, when trouble came, he would be very happy to help him in his mission.
Now, question arises,
where did the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam get these words from?
Where they're coming out of his own mind, your subjective mind his own thoughts and imaginations? Now, I have had for the good or the good fortune, the opportunity of speaking this subject to psychologists. And again, and again, the psychologists, they say they can't account for this washi because the Holy Prophet Muhammad, he's not talking about the problems of his people. They were problems. The problem of his people was that they were drunk cards. They were adulterous. They were gamblers. There was fat recital was over little little things. They were fighting and killing one another for decades,
that given the master historian, truly describe the Arabs before Islam, the Arabs have a yarmulke helia He said, The human brute, meaning the animal in human form, the human brute, almost without sense is poorly distinguished from the rest of the animal creation. The only thing human about them was the form. Otherwise, in their ethics, in their morality in their behavior, they were worse than animals. The Arabs have a yarmulke helia
so this was his problem, and instead of talking
About his problem he is made to
utter about speaking about reading, about writing and about learning things are known before. How do you account for it? psychologists fail. Now this was the first revelation, the experience that I want to be a creme de la sala head, and that he went and ran home to his dear wife, Cobra,
are not the narrations of an imposter if a man imposters a position he an imposter comes along and he says I'm a prophet God has chosen me, then he does not talk about how terrified he was, how he sweated and how we ran home to his wife, which is a most shameful thing for an adult to say today that he ran home to his wife for help and support. And it would be most shameful 1400 years ago to tell his people that are at home to my dear wife.
Now, this is not the behavior of an imposter. imposters don't behave like that. Because the imposters they would like to make it known that there's somebody great the JBL gibril came to me an imposter would talk something like this. And I told him you better bring God down from his throne. I want to talk to her to have a personal chat with him face to face. As Moses spoke to him, I want to speak to him bring him down. And God came down from his ash. And he sat with me and we had a heart to heart chat and so on and so on. This is how imposters talk. But this again is a fulfillment is a fulfillment of the prophecy of a Basharat from the previous scriptures from the scriptures of the
Jews and the Christians in this book called The Bible,
what the Christians and the Jews hold dear, the Old Testament portion of it. In it, there is a book called The Book of Isaiah
in the book of Isaiah, chapter 12.
I'm sorry, Chapter 29, verse 12.
There is a prophecy which reads, it says in the book, meaning the revelation of God, not literally in this form here.
As we see the Holy Quran in this one, not in this form, but the book means the revelation of God. Like Allah says Allah, Kalki tabo, this is the book, but there was no book in this form. It is the revelation the why
in the book is given to him that is not learned. I'm quoting and quoting word for word from the Scripture.
And the book is given to him that is not learned. And me saying read. And he said, I am not learned. In other words, I'm not educated. How can I read when I am not learned? Now there is not another occasion in the life experience of any prophet in the Bible. And hundreds of prophets are mentioned in the Bible, including harati Salah Salaam, in the New Testament is mentioned by name has Yala salam, they call him john the baptist is mentioned in the book,
new Isa, or Musa, or Tao also a man or yahia, or ilias, not one prophet in this whole vast volume of the Bible, not one prophet. We ever find these words escaping his lips, that I am not learned that I'm not learned. Jesus didn't say that I'm not learned. Yet he didn't say that I'm not learned. But this we find fulfilled in the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that he is a fulfillment of the prophecies of the Old Testament and the New Testament. In the words of others musala salaam, he prophesied the coming of obeah Karim surah salam, in the words of others, Italia salam, Jesus Christ, you also prophesied the coming of our Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,
and it is the duty of the Muslim to look at these verses, and master these verses and share them with the fellow countrymen, the Christians who live in our myths, the Christians in the Lebanon, the Christians in Egypt, and the Christians throughout the world people, our fellow workers, our co workers, our employees, it is our duty to share this knowledge, this Basharat, this fulfillment of prophecy with them with the Jews and the Christians and this is the primary duty of the Muslims. And it is about time that we did this job which we have been neglecting for the past 1400 years. Why for the 100 liability?

My dear brother in a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
In the English language,
there is a riddle.
So loose Jia?
which says, What is stranger than sending coal to Newcastle?
Newcastle is a city in England, where coal is mined?
And it would be a strange thing for people to export coal to New Castle. But the question is the riddle is what is stranger than that? And a modern answer to that riddle is sending oil to Arabia, meaning to the Arab countries is stranger than sending coal to Newcastle. Now I as a Muslim, from the south most tip of Africa, mirrors to the South Pole.
I am coming here to Arab lands,
to Muslims, who were originally where Islam started from. And I am coming to tell them something about Ramadan.
And in telling them so.
I have quoted a verse from the Holy Quran
from Surah Al Baqarah. That is chapter two, verse 185.
For the non Muslims watching this program, how can they have access to such a verse? The first method is that you ask any Muslim and if he tells you about a Surah Surah, meaning chapter, and he says Baqarah in this volume,
which was presented to me
by the presidency of Islamic Courts and affairs, in your city of Doha, Qatar,
in this volume of a translation of the Holy Quran, if you open the index, right at the back end of this volume is an index and the B, you will find Baccarat
if you look up Baqarah means chapter two. So you open chapter two, you get towards the end a 185. And you will get this verse about Ramadan, the month of fasting. It says shadow Ramadan and lady on the left Quran. Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed.
Who the Lena see in it is guidance for mankind, not only for the Arabs, not only for the Indonesians, not only for the Pakistanis, but for the whole of mankind. Who the Lena See, Baba, not in mineral Buddha well for Khan and it is a fuller explanation of the revelation of God and a guidance and as a discrimination as a standard of judging right from wrong. This is the Quran, the final revelation of God Almighty to mankind.
So man, Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed. And two verses before this one in verse 183. We are told
Yeah, you will live in Amman see Oh, you who believe all men of faith.
Yeah, Yola, Xena Kuta LA.
cama Kuta, La La Xena, Milan. kubla Khan says fasting has been ordained for you has been prescribed for you, as his as it had been prescribed for those before you, La La Quinta takuan that he may learn self restraint, that he may learn discipline. The purpose of fasting we find here told to us by God Almighty is not just to starve ourselves, but that we may learn self discipline and there is nothing new in this. It is not entirely something novel,
that God Almighty had ordained this system of fasting for the previous religious systems. In Judaism, the religion as taught by Moses fasting was prescribed
in the religion as preached by Jesus Christ has easily Salaam fasting was prescribed. And we read in the Christian scriptures, in what is called the New Testament in English,
that Jesus Christ he told his disciples that when you fast, do not fast as the hypocrites do, they do not wash their faces and they do not brush their hair.
But when you fast, you must wash your face and brush your hair, have a happy countenance that nobody knows that you are fasting because you're fasting for the love of God. So in Islam, this is one of the major principles Pillars of Islam and the Muslim. He looks forward to this holy month. of our
Medan and the Ramadan of the Muslim the holy month of fasting is counted according to a lunar calendar.
we in the West, people in the West we have a Gregorian solar calendar based on the movement of the Sun 365 and a quarter day, a year, and another 365 and a quarter and another 365 and a quarter and the fourth turn of the Earth around the Sun, they added day, which means they have a lunar, they have add what is called in February, they add an extra day.
Now in Islam, Allah Baris Allah, God in His mercy, what he has done is that by giving us a lunar calendar for working out our days and our accounting for our religious festivals, it has made it possible for mankind to have a chance of experiencing all the seasons of the year.
For example, that if it was a solar calendar, then in the West, for example, in England, which is a western country, north of the Southern of the equator of the equator, in that if Ramadan was around Christmas time in December.
Like they say the birth of Jesus Christ was in December, they have a white Christmas means always it is midwinter.
In our case, if Ramadan was to come, in sort of December, we say Ramadan, then every year year in and year out, it would have been a midwinter for fasting. And people in the south of the equator, it would have been in midsummer, like in my country, South Africa, we would be having midsummer throughout our experience, and the western men would be having midwinter throughout his experience and fasting in winter and fasting in summer, are not equal. There is a vast difference between these two. Fasting in summer is no doubt more strenuous. It is more tiring, more trying, then fasting in winter, then in winter, in the West, they have very, very long days and very, very short nights,
then we have very, very long days and very short days in winter and very, very long nights. So in other words, it would be very unfair, very unjust to work on a system of that nature. Allah subhana wa Taala God Almighty in his wisdom, in His mercy, he has given us this lunar calendar for working out this holy month of Ramadan. And we Muslims be fast from before sunrise to sunset.
Before dawn, we can have a little breakfast and the whole day, from morning from far from sunrise to sunset.
Not even a sip of water, no smoking, loose sniffing and other normal relationships which might exist between let's say the husband and the wife, even those relationships of satisfying your sexual needs are forbidden.
And it is a great discipline.
And the only witness to this system of fasting is God Almighty himself. And we are told in the books of Hadees that Allah tala he himself will reward the faithful, the one who has fasted from his own presence, because the Muslim has done this for the love of God only. And nobody is a witness to this because in the privacy of one's own home, from the cool refrigerator, he can take out water and he can drink who is a witness to that? Nobody except Allah. So with the fear Allah, the love of Allah, this makes the Muslim to obey this pillar of Islam was the one

My dear brothers and sisters,
I have read to you
a verse from the Holy Quran
In which Allah Allah tala tells us about Hajj,
that for Hajj the months are well
you know, the months of Hajj and when Hajj, the season of Hajj comes along.
When one undertakes Hajj, it is the duty of the Haji, the person who performs Hajj
that there is no obscenity that he performs no obscenity. He doesn't do anything that is outward untoward.
And nor does he do anything wicked, nor does he do any wrangling during the period of Hajj.
Now in the Hajj, there are certain signs of Allah tala certain
duties that one has to perform. And among these duties of Hajj one is say that is running between safa and marwah. These were originally to Hilux to small hills.
And the history goes, that hasn't Ibrahim alayhis salam, the Holy Prophet Abraham, the father of
the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims, everybody viviers this messenger of God as Father Abraham, Father, Abraham, Father, Abraham, hasn't Ibrahim alayhi salam,
he had two wives, Sara and hajra.
And through a conflict that existed between these two wives of his Allah, Allah commanded him to take hajra with her infant child, his smile, and take him to where maca is today, and leave mother and child.
Outwardly, it was one of the most cruel of deeds that any man can do to his wife and child, a young wife
and an infant child, but at the behest of Allah. He was prepared to do anything but Allah commanded him, he was prepared to carry out the commandments of Allah.
So he leaves mother and child. And as time wore on, they ran short of water
and BB Hydra.
She began searching for water, looking in this direction, looking in that direction. running up on top of Safa, looking around to see for some Oasis or see some habitation, nothing to be seen. She runs down the hill, and runs up onto the opposite hillock. marva. And she scans around for some signs of habitation, some oiss, some habitation, some people and she finds nothing. And she runs up and down and down and up. Seven times.
Allah subhanaw taala took such a liking to this compassion, this love that she had for her infant child that he made it fall upon the Haji the man who goes on pilgrimage, that he must also go go through the same process of up and down seven times.
Now Allah had a purpose in this,
of making us to go through that
as a discipline, as a sign as a monument of remembering Allah. Then he made Ibrahim Ibrahim alayhis salam to build acaba has a zebra him and his son is a young man when smile grew up to say, of age of discretion about 12 years of age, him father and son, they began raising the walls of the Kaaba is a cubicle, a square building, plain and simple building dedicated to the worship of the one true God. We say it was the first house built on God's good earth, for the worship of the one true God. Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And he was made to shout, to give the call for people to hearken to the call to come along and do the walk around this house of God
to show his love and dedication, and when the Muslim performs Hajj.
He goes around the Kaaba seven times.
The tower seven times, and as he walks around the Kaaba, he is made to proclaim the salvia, the reminder, love bake, Allah Humala bake means here I am Oh Lord, here I am. Oh Allah, here I am. Love bake. Here I am luxury Kala Kala bake. You have no associates. Here I am. In Alhambra says to you is do all praise when Nat Mata and all beneficent all bounties proceeds from the luck our milk and yours is the dominion, your is the power, your is the rule.
La sharika luck and you have no associate. Now this is the slogan 1400 years old and this year, some 3 million hajis
They went through that
ritual of going around the Kaaba seven times making the tower and repeating this formula. la Vega la mala Bay la de la sharika la Cala Bay in Alhambra. Metallica, wellmark la sharika la.
No, I was very fortunate this year in
performing this ritual, and while going through
it struck me
that this slogan, it is a slogan albia a reminder a slogan that we we Muslims are made to repeat year in and year out, no change
given by Elena via Karim Salah, Rasul Allah, no change. There must be a purpose in the slogan.
And I found that slogans are made to be repeated and implemented.
The United Nations, they have the certain agencies, and in certain of these agencies, they work for certain projects.
And they invent slogans. Like, for example,
they had what a year, water year year of the water for saving conserving water. And in that water year, the slogan went out, use it, don't abuse it, water, use it, don't abuse it, which is really our own slogan 40 100 years old also. But now the slogan part that people from all over the world are invited. And they go through this process of having themselves programmed in by themselves with these slogans and they go to their own respective countries, and they propagate the slogan and the idea, or this is the age of the child. This is the age of the child. This is an age for old aged people. So this is your mother. You know, an old age home is not her destination, you know, you must
look after your parents and on and on. These are really to me Islamic slogans, which the United Nations in some form or another, and the novel names they try to implement it. And these slogans are carried out in all parts of the world in different countries. But this slogan that we Muslims are repeating year in and year out. The most important unfortunate part is this. That we have done nothing. We are doing nothing to take them back home into our own respective countries. We leave the slogan behind
no doubt we take the dates from Makkah and Medina and we buy all the trinkets from Makkah and Medina things are very cheap, but the main purpose of Hajj, which is to see that this slogan is implemented to see the shark is obliterated from the face of the earth. This unfortunately, we Muslims have forgotten this lesson to imbibe wafra Dhawan and Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen.
Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. May the peace and blessings of God be upon one and all
in the Holy Quran, in Surah, Mohamed
I'm quoting from Surah Mohamed
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
What in the world? Hello? Yes, dill Coleman. Hi, Rocco.
Somalia. coonan onsala.
This is the last segment of the last verse of surah, Mohamad chapter 47.
If you were to find that this in your Holy Quran, to the Arab, there is no difficulty, most probably, who knows, and you can open and find it. But for the non Arab and most specially the non Muslim, he will have to get a book like this.
The Holy Quran translated an encyclopedia of some 2000 pages
produced by the the the the presidents of the Islamic Courts and affairs in Doha, Qatar, you can obtain this from them. And at the back of this volume is an index.
And in that index, if somebody told you that this is from Surah Mohamed, so you look up on the M Muhammad in italics, and it'll tell you chapter 47 or somebody tells you chapter 47, then it is easy to find chapter 47 and verse 38, the last verse, I have quoted to you the last segment of the last verse, from this surah Muhammad, in which Allah says,
Why is that the one love that if you turn back over
You Muslims if you turn back, yes.
If you turn back from the duties and responsibilities, which Allah tala has imposed upon you for being the hydromet in the best of people, if you turn back from your duties and responsibilities, yes, Stockdale, Coleman Iraq, he will substitute in your place another people, some then lacuna masala content, they will not be like you.
And when we study history, we find that that this law and eternal law of Allah berita law is working all the time.
You do not carry out your duties and responsibilities, Allah replaces you with another people.
And in this history, we have a classic example of the bunnies rally.
Let us confess that Allah chose them, as much as we might not like it for racial reasons for what is happening in the Middle East. What is happening in Israel, what is happening to our brethren, we don't like it, but Allah chose them.
And he sent prophets after prophets to them. out of the four books that we named, that we believe in, we say the turret, the Sabu, and the N g, r, and the fork and out of the four, three are those given to the Jews. The first one was nosara salam, the second one, that Islam The third one is Allah salam, Torah, Sabu injil, Jew, Jew, Jew. Among all the prophets we named besides the lnav Kareem sallallahu sallam, the Holy Prophet Muhammad. Almost all the other names we take musala salam, a Jew, as a Jew, as a Suleiman Allah salami Jew,
a Jew has an easily salami, Jew, June. Look, Allah chose them for His revelation,
to become the bearers of light and learning to the world. But they made their religion arratia religion they were not prepared to share with anybody.
They made it a family tradition, the Dean of law, they made it a family affair,
only for Jews. So has an ISA Allah salam, a Jew among the Jews, he tells them as recorded in the so called Injeel. Because the in the Christian Bible, as I said, divided into two portions, the Old and the New Testament, the New Testament is what they call the gospel, the New Testament, in which we have a certain number of books with this as the Gospel according to St. Matthew, the Gospel according to St. Mark the Gospel according to St. Luke, the Gospel according to St. JOHN, and they translate this word gospel in Arabic as Injeel in Gila, Matthew in Gila Marcus in JIRA, Lucas in Gila john yohanna. They keep on repeating the word in jail, in jail in jail, which may be a correct
translation. But really, this is not in jail. When we say in jail, we believe in the revelation that Allah tala gave to her a solid salam, that is mg, not what Matthew wrote, or what Mark wrote, or what Luke wrote, or john wrote, these are not angels. You can call it the so called angels. The angel is what was given to her Salah salam, and has at Isa Salam is reported to have said to his people, the Jews, he said, and the Kingdom of God
will be taken away from you and given to a nation bringing for the fruits they're off.
Because you are not doing the job you have made your religion or racial religion, Allah, Allah will take this honor this privilege of being the hydromet in a way the hierarchy of the time.
But because he didn't do the job, as an ISA Islam says it will be taken away from you and given to a nation bringing for the foods that are going to produce results. And this is the law of God, if you don't produce results.
Yesterday, pyrolysis is substitute in your place and other people.
So he substituted in place of the Bani Israel. The man is married the Arabs
and a people they were looked down upon, and this is the law of God and he picks up the people whom the world considers to be the most despicable, the most lowly, he takes them up from the gutter and he puts them on the top he makes the masters of the world he makes them rulers of the world. And he has done it again and again.
They spread out throughout the world. They conquered North Africa, and they went to Spain, and they ruled Spain for 100 years.
They had a jolly good time.
riches, opulence, buildings, amenities of life.
As Allah describes come to nothing
You saw how many other gardens in the fountains they left behind was doing mama Carmen Kareem am confused and monumental building when Martin confy hockey and wealth and the amenities of life in which they took so much delight.
gallica our Sneha pohlmann afreen test other people we meet in to inherit these things from our bucket. La hermosa Ma,
Ma Ma can vary, and neither the heaven is not the opportunity for them, nor was respect given to them anymore. 800 years they had a jolly good time, our ancestors in Spain.
But they didn't propagate the faith. They didn't do the primary duty of the Muslim was to propagate the faith, faith, the de la This is what Allah honored him for Quantum hieromartyr.
When he made us the best of people for mankind, it was for mankind and not for the Arabs alone, or the North Africans alone. But they made it also like the Jews. They made it a closed book. They were not prepared to share the deen with the Spaniards. Since these drunk cards, these gamblers this pig eaters, what will they understand about Islam? So they didn't do the job. So Allah law comes into force siesta
and they will substitute in your place and other people and they were substituted, kicked out to a man there was not a single Arab left there was not a single Muslim left in that country after 800 years to give the Azzam
shame on us. in Cyprus in the Mediterranean, our Turkish brother and the rule that country for 400 years. And in 400 years, they didn't convert 400 Greek families to Islam.
Had it not been for the strong arm of Turkey, protecting these Turks in Cyprus, they would not be a single turn left on that island today. Without Turkey, no Turkey and Cyprus wiped out to a man, not one will be left.
This is the last law yesterday.
If you're not prepared to share, this is the outcome. In India, the Muslims rule that country for 1000 years. But after 1000 years of Muslim rule, eventually when partition takes place, the Muslim gets one quarter the Hindu gets three quarter. Why? Because the Muslim didn't do the job. 1000 years he failed to do the job. So the law of Allah comes again into force. Yes.
Substitute in your base and other people. It's a warning for us. Allah has given us a second inning in the Arab lands, he has given you a second inning and I believe that they will not be a third meaning either we fulfill the duties and obligations which this honor of being the hierarchy imposes upon us. Oh, oh wait for Tara Basu. Allah says wait, and the people in the past they waited for the destruction. Are we going to wait is left to us just stop the direction from malaria Khun sakala
