Before I start this lecture I'd like to welcome brother Vince to the biggest family of Muslims 1.5 billion brothers and sisters in the in Islam love hug but Allah He doesn't matter how many times you meet new Muslims you still get the goosebumps you remember the time of blood and habit he said manifest is the survival roomie they come from everywhere to find the truth and the blessing of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah and the guidance in the light of Islam by the blessing of Allah. So I had my hand around him, I said, I hope you're not homophobic.
And inshallah there will be a lot more embraces the hugs and kisses to the brother and the gela again, may Allah bless him to Allah make him steadfast hold on to the La La Plata. We'll meet him in gender Amin.
So today's topic is about the ideas and issues of today. So let's go quickly
through what you hear all the time.
It's the word association game, subliminal messages, things that you hear.
I've actually gone to some different denominations and other ways of life. And I asked him the same question that I will be asking you now.
As it I will say one word, you tell me what comes into your mind first thing. So it says Muslim man is and they look at you and smile.
It says it's okay. You don't have to be politically correct here.
been there done that? I've heard it before. It's no surprise. You hear it on the media all the time.
And then Okay, if you don't want to tell me that, then tell me this. A Muslim woman is they go like this again. I go, don't worry. I got you covered. Let me help you out. A Muslim man is a terrorist and a Muslim woman is oppressed. That's the norm. Right? Of course. You don't want to say it will say it on your behalf.
So we tell them you know why you say that because you haven't come to our homes. You didn't need some motors for to almost andriani with us. But when you come get to know us, you'll find out that a Muslim man is oppressed.
And the Muslim woman is
I can see that because the sisters and around here so we're saving having delay brothers were cool.
What happens as he
these supplement messages and word association come from Dr. Pavlov's theory. They want you to think that even that's not the case. You go back and find out the doctor Pavlov did the same trick.
The rang the bell, give the dog the food same time as the bell rang. Every time the dog gets the food. Here's a bill. So the dog associated the food with the bill after a while he did not give him the food, but just rang the bell What happened to that salivated and that's exactly what you get. You will get this all the time through the media
that a negative connotation comes with that next after Muslim or Islam or anything to do with that the religion or the faith or the followers. So as soon as you hear that you will have a negative connotation in the back of your mind.
Islamic Muslim this islamic jihad is smell Phantom Islam, terrorists, all that stuff that comes with it. But have you ever heard a good Muslim doctor did this outrageous Muslim person done that?
They don't come in the same sentence. Intentionally of course.
But the jig is up people not that stupid anymore. They see through it.
Now what happens? Let's call the bluff. So they say a Muslim woman is oppressed.
Let's find the facts. And those who call them for the freedom of women.
Let's call for that. equality. This call for justice. Let's save this Muslim woman from the oppression of today. So let's free her please free her from what free her from her dignity of course. Free her from the clothes that she wears. Free her from the pride that she has free her that she doesn't know who the ancestors were. Let's free this girl. Let's touch her free. Come on, girl. Come on down. Come on down. No you have no value. Come on down the prices for the highest bidder come on down where every time they can hear you will look at you come on down that you'll be judged according to 3624 36 if you fit the bill, you're good. how big the measurement how good you look.
It's not what you have inside is what you have outside. It is a superficial short lived admission stick that is judged by a human being
They put you like a
hanger. They put the clothes on this year is that red? everybody wears red this year is black. everybody wears black. It's below the knee. It's above the knee. It's cut from the right, it's cut from the left cut from the front cut from the back. If you like a toy, you're a slave to a man that tells you what to do, what not to do, what to wear, what not to wear? Is that the freedom you're telling me about? Or are you slave to Allah? Subhana Allah Yoda, a man that doesn't care who you are, where you go, you're gonna end up in the Hellfire after him. Or Allah Subhana Allah, Allah wants you to go in eternal happiness.
Is that the freedom you tell me about? Why didn't you go back to the websites that you have? Go back on the FBI, you'll find out the percentage is so high, that women are actually harmed by their own husbands or significant other, go back and find out the percentage of people die that women die. These are not Muslims.
The woman died because of the harm planted on them with that people that have lived with them. They die from their own.
So is this a freedom you're telling me about? And this is who you are.
It's a choice you have to make. Okay? So let's find out the choice you have to make. So you ask yourself, do you have a life or is it a lifestyle?
What do you have on your walls, who you listen to? Who you look up to? Who you're trying to imitate? You walk, talk, eat, dress everything like
that and you'll find out that some of them unfortunately, go with the flu. That's how I roll. I get the bling bling. I go down. It's true. Why? Because it's a peer pressure, the peer pressure of today and then you'll find out that who I am the truly am if you look at the reflection, when you look at yourself in the mirror, you have to think my grandmother my ancestors, Khadija Don't you know who you are.
Your ancestors, you are the children or grandchildren of that Ayesha Fawlty. Mara delana McBain so you should be proud of who you are, walk with your head up high.
And think about it.
Think about what Islam done.
The first indication go back to yemanja Hillier, the pre Islamic era, the ignorant era, so they call it you'll find out that women had no rights.
Women were actually part of the inheritance of their husband dies, they become an inheritance. As a matter of fact, their husband can buy and sell their own wives.
You'll find out that the banners were raised in the tents outside Welcome Wagon, anybody's welcome. She chooses the husband of what of the hundreds that had done things with her. She says if she has a son, this is your son, and he has no choice. As a matter of fact, their father raised the banner for everyone to come and welcome to the stand amongst whom, because they want the lineage of the honor of society.
Women were killed before Islam, just because they were dishonorable. It was a shame. As a matter of fact, that is mentioned in the plan. It was a shame for anyone to have a daughter. What did they do? They either kill it or buried alive or bear with it for a shameless day for a shameful day or a long life.
It is narrated, that a man came to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says I've done something before Islam that I fear that allow me not forgive me for that. And of course we know that allows, Allah forgives all sins except one, which is shared, ascribing partners on to a loss of mine, Angela Viola.
He told him after a long story that I had this daughter
I felt ashamed.
I was fishing for a few years.
And after a while, I made a decision that I will either bury here or throw her in the will.
And as I've done here, my daughter's say, you have killed me dad, and I waited for her voice to drown
till I heard her die.
So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam cried and the people around them cry too.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals what is Elmo that is Isla de them being Coachella.
on Judgement Day, this may ooda this young child, this young daughter that's prior to Islam.
What sin has it committed?
For it to die? What mistake has she done?
By what right have you killed your own daughters?
She will come on Judgement Day asked you what sin have I done to be killed? What traits Have you had over me to kill me?
So this was the first indication that Islam honored women that is prior to that. And then you'll find out the truth. In the Muslim in our Muslim at one moment in our movement, most of the
male, female, male, female, male, female, feminine, tense, masculine tense, all the time equal in Nevada.
Then Allah the Prophet Mohammed Salim says Chaka, they're the brother runs equal in Nevada, when it comes to Islam, then you'll find out other faiths, other ways of life, they actually did not believe a woman is alive. They had not too long ago in history, they had meetings conventions to find out what a woman is, does she have a soul? Or does she have a soul?
Is she alive or she's not alive? Is she even being a human being and if she is alive, does she go beneath an animal or above the animal, Allahu Akbar, this is not too far, not too long ago in history, she didn't have a right to vote, should have a right to inherit,
should have a right to have a business. You go back in history, you find that Islam gave a woman the right to inherit, gave a woman right to vote gave a right to a woman to have business. All these are authenticated. There are 14 rights that has been written upon
that Islam has given women way over not just 100 years or so ago that they were fighting and debating over 1400 years ago, Islam given that the rights of woman
imagine yourself as an OC.
You thinking that a woman
in Islam is oppressed Allahu Akbar? How could that be?
How could you say a Muslim woman is oppressed? And what's the measuring stick of of being oppressed?
Or what submission is taken? Who puts you in charge? Who made you the beliefs of the world to actually say this is right and this wrong? Who are you anyway? Are you the creator of the creation? How could the creation Tell me what's lawful, what's not lawful? And you go back in history to find out that their own faith says the same thing. You go back in the Scriptures, you'll find the authenticated ones actually telling you the same thing.
Amazing. Now they have the audacity to play the role of God, this is acceptable that's not acceptable. This is lawful. That is not lawful. If you created me I'll say Yes, Master, I listen and obey. But if you haven't, if you don't have the keys for the Heaven and Hell, I tell you to go, have a good day.
sapan Allah, when Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says, I'm invite you to the heavens and the other people say you follow me, you'll go to hell at choice you have to make
then you'll find out that now these even women in the West are not very happy because they've been bought and sold. They're now on tabloids, their faces their bodies, and everyone can buy. They actually put it on the place where they have what they sell a car, they put your girl in the bikini, I have no idea till now, what a woman bikini has to do with the engineering of a car to be able to sell it.
But the US there is such object that's it. It be little dirt because now she's just a product, a meat, something that you can buy and sell. Islam says no women are honored. Women are honored. We look at them a much more than you think. They're elevated. The only religion on the face of the earth that elevated mothers over three times over the father, no other religion on the face of the earth that actually honors women more than Islam.
The religion that purified Maria mala Salaam, the mother of Isa, Allah Islam,
even know in a debate that they had different rabbis, priests, and scholars of Islam, and Imam, they said as a Muslim Imam, he says we have dignified and honored
and purified Maryam,
a woman that was not married but has a child. But you have accused
a woman that was married and had no child.
He became a Muslim on hamdulillah.
You can look at how people who have fished for false who look on the positive who looks on the negative who actually looks to defame it who actually has the defendant.
If you think about it, you'll find Islam is the only true path, a primal instinct.
It teaches you that even when you go ask
You hand the marriage, a wife? She's still wearing the hijab. Why?
Because you don't look at that what we talked about before you look at her mind.
You look at her characteristics, her personality, heart, their religion, background, the moral conduct background,
not the other way around where they meet in bars. If she's good around or she takes her, whatever, I'm trying to keep this as a family show as much as possible. We have kids, how old are you, son?
You get the gist. You understand what I'm saying? Allah help you alight.
But of course the sisters have it's very difficult.
You think it's easy, level light. But you tell me man, I thought, Man, I have a beard. No, no. You try wearing a hijab and niqab and walk down the streets just in case you think it's easy? Well, light's not easy.
They are a walking pulpit. Yeah, actually, you should be proud of it.
It's a it's an honor for you to be a Muslim Mohammed Jabba voila, he.
You stick out, like everybody else was walking naked and you're holding on. Even though it's hot in the sun. The scholars say every drop of sweat in your body is the heaviest on the scale. You've shed yourself here. Allah will shade you on Judgement day where there is no shade except his shade. 50,000 years.
Imagine yourself. This is a true story. A young girl was wearing the hijab, another sister supposed to be Muslim?
Isn't it hot? What did she say? called narrow jahannam. I said to
the Hellfire is hotter.
Imagine yourself off the Aviva honorable.
No one sees you except what is permitted to be seen. Or those who can see you.
as if you're the only one that is fighting. When the whole army is fled. You're the only one holding on to La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah in an environment that is full
of mischief, transgression, evil deeds and acts.
Imagine yourself of the being resurrected on pulpits of light, being proud to say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, when everybody else around you has not
imagined yet, tea, you're called eliel you're amongst a few. Wakayama, buryatia.
May Allah make us among the few mean?
Only a few of my slaves are grateful. And how could you be grateful? Allah Subhana Allah gives you the answer. What am I doing with the sukra? It's the MLS the actions and deeds. So once you wear the hijab of t, Allahu Akbar. Imagine yourself the honor when you walk around, nobody will be able to see you and say she's walking for this she's looking for that we cannot generalize understand. There are misconceptions to the theory, or the exceptions to the theory.
We don't building a theory upon an exception
that you claim or
we cannot build that upon it. But we take the norm or the general insha Allah, understanding that the honor and the dignity of that woman, by the blessing of Allah, Allah, Allah.
say we go back and say don't be fooled.
Don't be fooled when they tell you like some other women done and another country again, so called Muslim. They took up their hijab placed it beneath their feet and they started stomping on it, declaring it's that freedom of woman now, Allahu Akbar, and everyone that follows her she will commit that sin till Judgment Day. Can you imagine?
The scholars will tell you for every hair that is shown to another maharam to a person that can actually marry you is considered a sin. You imagine now if the system is not mahabhava for every hair on her head is counted as a sin. You do how many people have seen you without multiply by the days in your life? You do the math Subhana Allah
we're not going to go into the issues I wasn't here for the debate between the Shabbos ama and say
how was the fight was good.
We all have the law we told the chef Take it easy on him please well, like
we all love less than both inshallah we learned from them.
But what law here
Don't you see the sister that's walking around especially in the West that's wearing the hijab niqab like an angel?
Well, law II
I've never had so much respect for women to have seen a sister as walking in the West especially.
That is wait wearing a hijab or niqab bomber he looks like an angel walking down yeah Allah Subhana karabi by the razor and some now the Muslim sister says I don't want to be known yesterday. It's a difficult time different this and different that says you go with against that. The Quran yosity allows them handouts as a European fella using nikka euro. Allah subhanaw taala you wear this so you will be known, you will be known so you will not be harmed? How could you be known? I am not that type of a girl. Can you imagine a sister wearing the hijab or the niqab covered? Could you imagine? a cruiser like a Corvette with the top down? Two brothers hanging down and with the hair and stuff
all that stuff around? Can you imagine walking around with a look at the eyeballs on her? Wow, that's amazing. Could you think of Are you kidding me? Matt, there'll be diverted into prevention is better than cure. I'm not that type of woman don't even come close to the coloration and the Muslim woman Don't mess with me.
Now you understand. Now the other way around. If you go back into statistics, again, just check it out. You'll see how many rapes are going on during the day, in some places in Europe during the day rapes are going on.
And you're not telling me that this is the honor of Yeah, we say the honor of a woman is that
where is the pearl come from? The beauty of the pearl is that inside the shell, the shell may not look that beautiful.
But what's inside that counts. That is the beauty of the woman and Muslims. As the Muslim woman, the beauty of u of t is who you are, who you truly are, what you're created for the reason that is inside your heart, the beauty under the hijab, not the outside the fake when you take that sister that looks like
whatever, you take her you put her under a shower, you take her out, you take all that paint and all that plastic and all that stuff, she looks like a Salalah what I have here,
but the beauty, the one that worships Allah subhanaw taala no matter what you actually admire and respect that sister, the sister that will be with you in heaven, inshallah is totally different. So even the brothers that may be fooled, they have the picture in the back of their mind that this is who I want to marry. That's beauty. That's love.
But don't you see actually look at all the dreams before and even nations before you'll find out that hijab was before Islam.
When people tell you that a Muslim woman is oppressed, and he had been forced to do this so that you don't even know you haven't done your own homework.
You go back to the nations before you I asked him one question, what was the
color of the hair of Mary May peace be upon her? The mother of Jesus May peace be upon him? What was your hair color? They don't know. They tell me I have heard this
brown black blonde. I have heard this blue. Go Blue. Come on, man.
It's not from Mars. We're coming down to earth Dude, come on. This is from the schools that come to the center. And he talks about comparative religion and that world religion classes. I go, you know why? You don't know because she was what she told me. Yes, she was covered. You're right. What about the nuns is covered too. So can it's free? The nuns free the nuns, man free marry, let's go to the demonstration the streets. I tell you, let's go too quickly. Now, what were you thinking, we oppressed woman we forced them to wear their hijab and go on the contrary, let's go to two places. One we call the extreme, and one is called the other extreme. Let's go to France.
And let's go to Afghanistan with no offense to everybody. You know, we love everyone, it just an example. We'll call it F and a whatever.
Any other country.
This is a European country. You're supposed to be at the top of democracy, a g7 freedom, democracy in action, they passed a law that you cannot cover your head, the pass the law, you cannot cover your head. Now the passing other laws that you cannot cover even your face and so on. And they say that a democracy. They tell you what to do, what not to do, how to live your life and how to what to worship, what not to worship, how to actually practice your religion, and they call that a democracy, Allahu Akbar.
they're intimidated by a piece of cloth. I understand. It's not the piece of cloth it's comes with after I know that. But let's go to the other extreme. Now. What do you call this go to the Taliban land?
Tell him was the burqa, the Buddha?
was the day before the Taliban?
They say yes, go You're right. Taliban has gone according to them.
Another person is in charge. Now.
Is the burqa still there?
gonna say yes or no Was it the Taliban said no. So you're right.
You understand now it is not the case. In France, after the past that law who walked in the streets of France asking for the rights to wear the hijab wasn't Muslim men?
Was the Muslim because we want to oppress our women. Let them put our agenda. No, it was Muslim women that walk in the streets of France, asking for the rights to wear the hijab. It was French woman that works in the streets of France to support Muslim women for their own rights. Imagine
it is only again, wars of words. So Allah subhanaw taala come in. These words are minor, let them be, but hold on to La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah
because that is your lifeline. We're lucky. This time is short lived. We will talk about that the next lecture.
However, my sister is in Islam.
I can tell you
how proud I am of you are lucky
of holding on to the hijab or the niqab here in the West.
It's a struggle DND out.
But what gets this poor slave of Allah is when I hear a sister on the other line crying, says my father will disown me if I wear the hijab.
I said I'm sorry, I have to repeat that please. My father will disown me if I wear the hijab. He says if you wear the hijab, I will disown you or better yet, my husband now is telling me to take the hijab off or go Allah.
I can't believe I'm hearing those words with my own ears.
Have you not heard yet he Dharan in Indiana there is a banner that says La Liga youth.
The youth the definition
meralco para la le wire Bobby. Those who see there is unlawful
upon their woman folks, the one they're in charge off, are responsible for and he accepts that. As a matter of fact, he will the other way around, tighten the dress of it shorten anymore, take up the hijab shoe, a little bit of whatever and all that stuff. Imagine or they asked you to do something that is bad or unlawful or haram La la la de la bella, that is called the youth
on Judgement day there is a banner in heaven says this the youth will not be permitted to enter heaven.
So my brothers in Islam, be very careful. Yes.
So the Hadith as of today, as of today
are brought up in a way that deagle understand what the true slime is all about. People are the product of the society, the environment around you,
in doing what you're doing, or helping you to believe what you believe. So what I'm asking you to do
is to raise them in the righteous environment
to have the righteous friends, the infrastructure I raised early. That's why prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says muru Allah de comida selaginella Sabha demanded to pray at seven years old. Now when they reach puberty or the other age of 15. No, it's too late. Then the scholar says PS analogy. parable analogy is what do the same thing with the hijab is enough to
link them who they are.
So if your daughters
are raised in a way to know what Islam about, and what the beauty of the hijab and the reward the future benefit of it, at seven years old, you start, don't ask him, let them be around the righteous company, choose the righteous spouse for them. Meaning the mother is the example that's the one that teaches them. So what I'm telling you to be proactive, not reactive yfv the children that you have rights upon you before they're even created. That's another topic, but that's how they're raised my brother.
And the infrastructure of having a good friend. are three, three criterias
I have a good friend that you should have. You have no choice of your family but you certainly have choice of your friends. So three criterias you look for in order to in order for you to hold on to be resurrected with Asian Khadija Allah I mean
number one either Ida caraka Bella hiroyasu it's repeated but it's worth it.
If you see them they remind you of Allah.
Allah Allah Allah Hallo.
If you see them will remind you of the path to that Jenna inshallah, the path the straight path of a law
that I can imagine monto when they speak your Eman increases, they remind you about heaven hell life death.
If you find that of the hold on to them.
And I tell you
You are our sister or mother or daughter or wife.
You are the core of this woman.
You are the backbone of this oma
that's the reason we tell you.
We honor you.
That's why prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Give us the advice. before he dies. Stone souvenirs Say hi, Ronnie period three times.
Look after women look after women look after a woman Why?
over 1400 years ago,
he realized that our enemies will come through Islam through the gates of women.
They will start ruin them given these ideas about freedom.
So he says look after a woman.
They're the ones that are going to use arrays, the youth. They're the ones that are going to raise your children. They're the one that will teach. They're the one they're a core of the oma Why? Because they have made of countries and the countries have made of communities. And the communities are made of families. And the core of the family is the mother whether you like it or not. She's the one that looks after you and looks after your children.
So we have to look after them my brothers and sisters. So as you knew and our brothers, you need to tell your wife I love you at least three times a day.
But most of us can say that can you
look after your woman? Yeah. That's the advice of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when the enemies come and say you are you detested your your press, they say no, I am honored. I am loved and respected. I am raised and honored and elevated. Yes, dignified.
Why? Because Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told us to that used to declare us to hope I was blessed by her love that best of us declared his love Yeah.
So when you go
I'm not gonna tell you what to do with your wife. That's another course. But you can understand what
you can understand when Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam says mother
your mother your mother, your mother then you father. Isn't that enough? The Hadith the heaven is beneath the mother's feet is weak. But there are other ahaadeeth that actually makes the idea strong. The street strictly says Thomas Jana be good to them. There is Jenna understand that but beneath the mother's feet is weak the if so we have to explain that inshallah. So my dear brothers, this was a slob
leaving you with one thing,
that woman in your life, whether it's your mother, your daughter, your sister, or your wife
is the only creation on the face of the earth
that will go hungry in order for you to be eaten, to be fed.
She will go thirsty in order for you to quench your thirst.
She'll have sleepless nights so you can have the comforts of that sleep zone. She will sacrifice her life in order for you to live.
She will laugh when she sees you laugh. She will cry when she sees you cry. She devoted her life in order for you to stand on your own feet. You'll find out that who you are is because of your own mother
is because of the woman behind you. You'll find out that they are the reason the second reason of creation.
So you understand now who the woman is
Islam is haven't even begun to scratch the surface of even the 14 that we've written about on the internet, the rights they have and the honor they have and the love and respect they have in our hearts and souls. From now on, yeah.
When you see this sister walking around in hijab and niqab, you make dua for her.
You ask Allah Subhana Allah to give her that. You ask Allah subhanaw taala to give her agenda for those who Allah, you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah directly with Khadija with our inshallah Allah and how much money you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to grant them for their patience and struggle and strive to be drinking from how the cows are on judgment day.
You ask Allah Subhana Allah change and change them on judgment day, there is no shade except to shade. Not I mean, Allah says that she is not from the throne of Allah is not befitting. Otherwise, we would think that sun is above the Throne of Allah. It's not the case. He says that shade will be created specially for that. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to shade us on Judgement Day when there is no shade except to shade. And I asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to be able to help our sisters to hold on and being righteous and give them the support they need, especially out here in the West, and make dua for them all the time. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah bless them all. Welcome
Domine hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallahu wa salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
