Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah
brothers and sisters Welcome back to the Prophet series today Insha Allah we have a sensitive topic never used to be years back, but now it is because of the societal changes. Today we're going to talk about the Prophet Lord. Allah has Sudan and the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. In Arabic, they are also called bundles that doom the sodomites, who were the people who profit looked, I lay His arm was sent to he was not one of them. He was not one of the people. He was the nephew of Prophet Ibrahim, Allah has said and he was born in somewhere in Iraq, possibly a town called order. You are
some Albanians, I think name that name today or so it was born somewhere there and migrated with Prophet Ibrahim Ali salaam to Palestine, in Jerusalem. And then Allah sent him to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. It is a place today where the Dead Sea is and its boundaries its borders are Jordan, and the West Bank. If you know what the West Bank is, anyone know the West Bank, every Muslim should know what the West Bank is.
Now and the West Bank in Palestine, the and east of Jerusalem. There is the Dead Sea there and inshallah we'll talk about that today.
So leaving off continuing from where we left off last week.
It's now a Lila is Salam
died in Makkah.
And there is a little bit mentioned about him in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Sulak Meriam about the smell Elijah you sit down with could fill Kitab Ismail Hain and relating the book is smiling in novel can or saw the continuity. He was always truthful to His promises. That's why it's made Alia SLN is mostly known for in the Quran. Allah praises him by saying that he had he always stuck to his promise. If he promised something he would do it.
And in Agana saw the call Wadi, what can I interrupt him or the year and he was to his Lord, honorable and Allah is pleased with him.
What can a Jambo Angela who will be solidarity. Another trait to have a smile on his salon, which he has been honored for in the Quran is that he used to command his family to pray all the time.
He used to be patient and one of the things that he focused on was that his family members had to do this or that
was the cat. And they used to give arms zakat for the wealth which they accumulated. We all know what the Zakat is in our Islamic religion. Yes, the third pillar of Islam
or is the fourth anyway, one of the five pillars of Islam, that if you have wealth, money or so wealth that has been accumulated with you over a period of one year, and they are over a certain amount called nisab threshold, and you don't need that money for anything, then it's not your expenses then you have to produce two and a half percent of it and give it to the poor, needy, eight different categories of people in the Quran.
So it's made I sent him to tell his family to pray and to give the cat
he also was out of school and Abby, Allah says Karen rasool and Nebia. He was not a new prophet, but a messenger. So he was an elite. Well, not an elite, that's the wrong word. He was one of the more honorable of the prophets, the most special the more important ones is smile. Alayhis Salam.
So we don't have much more mentioned about him except what I've already mentioned in the past lectures with Prophet Ibrahim Ali, his son and he died in ladka.
Surgery his mother has Allah Hema Sena and the legacy lives on with us till today, every year.
As for his heart, either his salaam, his brother, he died in Jerusalem, and from him came the children of Israel in sha Allah next week, we will be talking about that line of prophets from the children of Israel, all the way up to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it was. The scholars agree that there has never been any other prophets sent from any other people, except from the children of Israel, after Ibrahim Malika Sinha and Ibrahim Ali has
Salam was called upon MBM, the father of the prophets, who I just mentioned it from him came the progeny of all prophets. And that's the DUA he made when he was building the carpet. I said, Yeah, Rob, my lord make my progeny among the righteous and from them prophets and messengers. Last month, I responded to him from his house outside prophets and messengers, and he said, and among them, there'll be people who are not going to earn my paradise there will be, there'll be wrong doors. And then when he was building the Kaaba, he asked Allah about to send a messenger
to the world from the progeny of Ismailia Senna, because he and his maiden asked for it and the only prophet the only messenger coming out from Ismay, salaam Syed was who? Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, nearly 4000 years later,
my brothers and sisters in Islam.
And so Rahim Allah has passed away at the age of about 180 According to some narrations or 170. Quinton, his red light traditions. So Allah has said that his wife died also at approximately 120 years. And it's hardly done a little bit more. And then from from Kenya Corbelli. He's from Yaqoob obviously lived to see his mother Sarah, and then use of Allah Islam. That's till next time and shout Allahu Shahada. Just to mention very quickly, Ibrahim Ali has sent and received sort of, which means Scriptures. He didn't receive the Torah or the gospel or the Czar's but he received words from Allah subhanho wa Taala that came from the heavens, and they were called sawed off which means
scrolls. The Scrolls of Ibrahim Allah is set up there in the Quran and in several passages, the most famous passage in Surah Al Allah subhanaw taala we recite it all the time, especially in winter. So in the end of Sultan Allah Allah Subhana Allah says Sophie Ibrahima, one Musa the scrolls that were sent to Ibrahim, and the ones given to Musa Moses, Moses received scrolls and the Torah, two things. The form of Rahim Allah get Sana, we don't have any of them left. However, there are the ratios from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and in early scriptures as well and they had been merged into our Quran. In Allah's words in different words, like not different words, but Allah's words, on
a different level. And some of the things that arise Salim scriptures had, we're very, we're all words of wisdom.
Some of the words you used to have is make for your Lord.
separate times, in the day a time
to make this be a time
also to reflect which is a sunnah that we have, a lot of Muslims have left reflection to sit and just ponder upon Allah's creation and think Allah does say that in the Quran, with a Corona personality without Allah mentions and praises certain people who say, who he talks about them saying, and they ponder about the creation of the heavens and the earth. And they say, I've been so lucky to have that up in our Lord, You have not created all of this foolishly for no reason.
Subhanak how perfect Are you? How far away from imperfection Are you focusing on other than that, Oh Allah save us from the fine. So this was called time to reflect and ponder this. And this is a form of worship as well.
And a time for yourself and for your family. And these were all words of wisdom from Ibrahima Davidson, and this several words of wisdom, but these are just some examples and are merged into the Quran and into our son, my brothers and sisters in Islam.
After that, Lord Alayhis Salam was left with his people. Now when I said after that, I don't mean after the death of Ibrahim Ali said I'm saying after talking the story of a growing Palestinian because remember last week, what I said, angels came to Ibrahim Ali in Santa Ana, let's go from there quickly in sha Allah and continue the story.
So let's now a few years back before Abraham has surnames death, and if you recall, Allah says in the Quran that he sent to angels, no three. Well, we don't know how many but according to the Hadith it was three angels. And also according to the Torah, the scriptures of the in the Bible, the Torah and the Bible, they talk about the Indian of the gospel, they talk about the angels that there were three so we agree on that. In the Old Testament and the New Testament, and also in the Quran, Allah says We sent Our Messengers and they were angels, but it doesn't mention their names in law court and specifically, however they worship relighting Santa Monica in an East Rafi. The one who was in
charge of the mission was Gibreel Allah, his center,
So they went to Grandma's salah, and we all know the story of the feasts which he brought to them from last week, and they gave him good news of a child and then they said to him, we are going to we have been sent to destroy the people have looked
Ibrahim alayhi salam tried to persuade them not to go. He you can understand from the context of the verses, you can understand that there's emotion here from my grandmother is Salam and fear. What is it? He's telling the angels don't go yet, like, give it more time just waiting a little bit, give them time maybe that'll repent, maybe they'll fix their ways. You know, this is the compassion and mercy of prophets.
And you're thinking like, what is that crime that didn't many crimes. Among them is the famous sort of my crime, which is men having sex with men. And also they were highway robbers. They used to cut off streets and rob people on in the streets. And they were also known for rape extra to that.
And they were obviously the biggest crime was that they disbelieved in Allah. They worship idols, and they disbelieved in all the prophets that came to them, especially Lord Allison, and so their crimes were many. But they had that specific crime, men had sex with men, and no other Prophet
was sent to people like that before or after. They had never heard of this type of an act before.
Nearly every people in the prophets were sent to we hear we know about them in the Quran, also in the Bible, and in other stories of different religions, there was sent for different crimes, but the only and they were always repeated, some of them were repeated, except for this crime was never done before according to the Quran, and never done after until the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Or even the time that
this was not done sodomy
even though that was the case, and Ibrahim Ali Silla knew they had done heinous crimes and according according to Allah's law, he's still trying to clean
for them, on behalf of them,
for the angels to give them time.
And Allah acknowledge that about Ibrahim is alone. He said, In that era, human, Ibrahim was surely a compassionate,
merciful and tender hearted man, Prophet. So let's not acknowledge that he was being tender hearted, even towards these people. But Allah subhanho wa taala. And remember, we said Allah knows everything. We cannot question what Allah does.
He decreed that these people have no more solution. Allah said, Oh, no more solution for them. They will never be better, they'll only be corrupt and cause more corruption onto others. And so the angels reply to Ibrahim Ali Salam Ibrahim Aragon had that Allah says in the Quran, oh, Ibrahim, enough.
Stop with the plea.
For them. Your Lord's decree has come and there is no solution. So who is the one making this decision? The Creator of the heavens and the earth, not the humans, not even the prophets, this decree of destruction was not for the prophets to do. It is only for Allah. I'm saying this so that you don't understand us as Muslims, that just because Allah destroys a certain people for a crime they did. It doesn't give us the justification to go and harm these people or destroy them and so on. This is a matter only to Allah, when Allah was to destroy people, this is his manner. And all the scholars of the past. All the traditional scholars agree that this is the case is the principle,
you did not mix between what Allah did to people and how you treat them. Your treatment of them is a different story. And if you look back on my stories on the Sierra of the process, and you'll see this throughout the history, and the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam.
And so, Ibrahim Ali Salam said, Okay, well, when you destroy a people and there are righteous people among them, they said no, he said, and this is also in the Quran, Carla for in Nephi. Hello, Paul. There is lot over there among them. In other words, is a righteous man. Please save him first. And they said to him, don't worry. In them on average, we will save lot. I'll just quickly put the translation we will save a lot and his family in their chosen field hobby. except his old woman, she will be left behind.
Who was the old woman? It was his wife. How do I know who was his wife? Well from another verse in the Quran in surah. Daddy, Allah said, well that Allah that of Allah, not one barraba Allah, Martha and Medina CAFO. Allah gives an example a parable to those who disbelieve in Murata know, the wife of No. La Santa one brothel.
Wood and the wife of Lord Alabama center can have done even a birdie now. They were under
guardianship, and loyalty and partnership.
In the family they were wives
of have two righteous servants of Ours. Amazing imagine being the wife of, of not many, I mean sisters and aims to be the wife of a prophet of Allah, a prophet
for heart, either inside the Haney a bed in our Saudi hiney for HANA tournament, they both betrayed their husbands.
And it did not benefit them anything Allah says when I'm talking to him and Allah, He will clean the tuna now Rama Delphine, and it was said both of you, the wife of Noah and the wife have looked into hellfire with those who enter it.
I don't know if they became disbelievers. Or they just joined with the disbelieving people against the Prophet. But Allah said, they entered paradise and their story ends then we don't know anything else about the wives of these two prophets. They betrayed them
by being disloyal to them, not supporting them in the message.
Some people try to attack these prophets by saying Orientalist and other people's silly silly comments. Some people when they read the Arabic they think that they slept around, they cheated on their husbands or stuff will allow the bin that Allah will never give a wife to a prophet who has cheated. He does stuff like that. They were noble to that they guarded themselves but when Allah says they betrayed their prophet, their husbands, meaning they did not stick by them in their message, rather than Detroit. They went with the
local SLR his wife did that too. She stood with the people of Sodom and Gomorrah against her husband, and her daughters
looked alike his sudden
load the nephew, Rahim Allah He said, he married one wife, according to my knowledge, and he had only two daughters, no sons, the two daughters are from the Israel traditions. I know. And they are also mentioned by some of our historian scholars, and they are in poverty, for example, he mentioned that he had two daughters, and I think it took them from Israel tradition. We don't know any more than that. And their names were Ryther coresta. And then rapa.
strange names but that was in their in their time.
And these two daughters, were the only two daughters for Natales Cena and oh how much he wished that he could have sons. Why? You will see later sons stood to protect and stand with him. The daughters were weak, they couldn't stand with him. So he used to say to his people, though, are nearly rotten, if only I could have some strong sons men to stand with me or a strong men that I can stand with
so that they can stand with me against your people and what you are doing.
Anyway. lokala is Santa, then?
What is the story?
The two angels Well, the three angels were in the form of the most one of the most handsome men as you can see. Three of them. And they were extremely attractive.
They left Ibrahim I didn't sell him and headed towards Sodom and Gomorrah. near the Dead Sea, as I said, when they reach there.
The two daughters of Lot. Alayhis Salam were fetching water from a well
and she saw them.
They they saw them.
So without anything, they ran back to their father, Lord, Allah, you sat down and said to him, Oh, Father, bad news.
There are the strange men who have entered this land. And they are among the most handsome is to get the same. In other words, dad, you know what we mean?
Not good news. The last panel with the harlot mentioned this particular incident in the Quran.
He says, To pan over to Isla. And so these visitors came into the land of Lord and law looked at that as bad news. And he knew, he said, how the young will now see this is a terrible day.
Why is he saying this is a terrible day? Number one, a prophet has to honor his guests. They're his guests. Now he has to look after him. No one
LCS number two, he has to go and grab him beforehand comes to them.
And when he saw them handsome men, strangers, he thought
the people are going to know about him, the men of my of this of this land, and they're going to, they're going to do the right thing.
Or commit sexual adultery,
sexual fornication. So he said, This is a terrible day.
So he approached them. And he tried, he didn't know they were angels and tried to convince them to leave.
So we started saying things like, you know,
your stranger people?
Can't we haven't had the acquaintance I'm not. I came here migrate a while ago, expecting them to tell them who they are. But they didn't say anything. So he thought, let me try and do something else. He said, You know, this land that you've come in, you're very welcome. You are my guests. But it is one of the worst lands and people that I've ever met.
He's trying to tell them get out of here. But still, they didn't listen. So nobody said and ran out of options. All he could do was welcome them and be be their hospital be their host in his house. So he put them in the house, and he was scared. He told his daughter's look outside. Unfortunately, his wife went and told the news to the people about these handsome men in his house. Allah says this particular incident in the Quran, Allah says wotja como yo Marone wha hoo, como yo, Ramon, Allah says, and his people came to him rushing.
They came running
like a celebration, like a concert.
And Allah says,
and while they were already doing the evil act before we know in other words, why they were coming.
Low Bala he Salam said so they came into the door and they started knocking and they said to Him, they start shaking the door and saying, open up your Lord, we know that you have them in their
loot Allah Islam, Allah says, Lord said, My people
call a call me. Listen very carefully. Here are my daughters. They are pure for you. have fear of Allah and do not disgrace me concerning my guests. Is there not even one right minded person in your midst?
They said, Surely you already know that we have nothing to do with your daughters. We don't desire your daughters. We don't see a right to go to your daughters and have them as sexual mates. Because that's not what we want. It's not what we do. So in our perception, we have no right to your daughters. We don't want them.
You also know well, what we want.
We're in Nicola Tamela Mann read. This is in surah. At hood as 77. Brothers and sisters, I have a few points about this verse. Now. Please listen carefully.
When nobody Salam said,
caller Yeah, call me how would I even and he said, Oh, my people, these are my daughters. They are pure for you. He did not mean his own two daughters.
You will find some strange narrations by some Islamic scholars of the past saying that he offered his own daughters. But Subhanallah the rest of the scholars disagree, and it makes absolutely no sense to offer his own daughters. Why? Number one, we know that he had two daughters. And in Arabic, it says how old how old? He is a is a
hot word is a word referring to plurality these a lot and in Arabic will say how it will be it's more than two. So he only had two daughters. You could have to refer to them. In the plural sense. They were unusual. You were he would have said turning
these two are my daughter's but rather they said how would it that's number one. Number two.
They wanted to commit haram illegal sexual intercourse. And from what he saw they were about to write them. How could a prophet offer his daughters to be Xena material of fornication or material of rape? It absolutely makes no sense to the mind of anybody and it's actually an abominable, abominable, abominable accusation on the Prophet of Allah. How could a prophet offer his daughters in such a way? And lastly, but very importantly, it was not his daughters he was referring to he was referring to the women of the land, the rest of the women because it wasn't only men that live there.
There were women as well. So there were men who slept with men and men who slept with women as well. So they also reproduced, they did all that stuff, everything.
It was a colorful salad of things. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, Abraham, Lo, Palestine would not offer his own daughters, not even the daughters of the people. But why did he say my daughters? Well, it's very clear, very simple. All the prophets used to refer to the, their people, the men and the women as their sons and daughters, their children. This was throughout history, Prophets always used to do that. And it's in also in that I did in Abu Dhabi, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and I'd be disappointed were needy
and I'd been delighted when he you know, come from some Mohamed Salah Salem is to say, I am to you like your father, I teach you. And so it was very normal for prophets to say, my daughters my son, so what he meant was my daughters, and what he was offering them was not rape or sexual, Zina. You know, fornication, he was offering them he said on now power, they are pure for you and purity can only mean marriage. Because Allah says, Allah only loves for you like only purity. And one of the purities which he named is marriage Zoa hash Nikka marriage, that's the pure form and we will come back to the insha Allah God, definitely fornication and adultery is not pure. It causes diseases. It
causes harm people get abortions as a result of Zina, we know about this in today's world, we'll come back to that inshallah.
Brothers and Sisters in Islam, therefore, that was the explanation of that. What was their reply?
In another verse, they said
Look at this guy a Lot and his family.
They we should kick them out of this land. He used to call them and say stop this acne say kick them out of this land in number one. So yeah, Papa Harun. They are people who think that they are so pure.
You know, they think that they are so pure. Allah said, and sort of the naman expel lot's family as well as himself from your land. It's what they used to say about him. There are people who make themselves out like they're pure.
And these words are very similar to today's words that we hear.
ie they said they think they're natural, and we're not natural, that what we are doing is not a natural act and that they are a natural act. You know, we're the same we're both natural, just that we're different. We like something he doesn't like so why does he think that he's pure and not?
In I'm gonna say Atoka Haroon.
That they are clean. They think and we are not.
They think they're natural. We're not.
So we have some expressions today straight.
They call heterosexual straight spa still today straight. And they used to use the word Yup, a huddle and they want to stay pure Subhanallah
and they say our needs are perfectly natural, like the rest of you. So this is what they were the language used to be with Lord and His people.
Allah says in the Quran,
when we sent into his people, he said to them what isn't true, you approach men instead of your women to satisfy your lust. You are indeed an ignorant people with no sense of decency, and no sense of right and wrong.
He did not say that they are psychologically sick. He did not call it a disorder. He did not call any of that stuff. All he said to them was you are a people. Allah Subhana Allah says they were a people who did not use their senses and obey their senses of right and wrong.
So it was a deliberate act, which they knew was not right. But they did not care anymore. And Rasul Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talks about shame. And he says,
Every Prophet Canaan taught his people modesty and shame, shame in a good way, meaning to have modesty and to stay away from immoral paths.
And he said, if you have no shame,
then go ahead and do anything you want.
If shame is lost from a person,
then there is nothing
that can make you follow morality. You are you become immoral. If there's no shame on us. Everything's allowed. There's no shame. You do anything. Anything.
Serial Killer, no shame. In fact, they glorify themselves. Pedophilia
All right. murder, theft, everything.
No shame. People do anything brothels, prostitution,
child prostitution, everything. pornography, whatever, no shame. Do whatever you please. In other words, there's nothing even the Prophet if it was here. If you have no shame he cannot lead you astray he cannot lead you on the right path. Not even the province can lead you on my path. So shame my dear brothers and sisters is Amen.
It's also I said, I've said that I hire women, Alina shame and modesty is part of the human is part of faith. It's part of what makes you human.
And differentiates us from other creatures, my brothers and sisters in Islam. They, there are people who say that No, no, the meaning of do you approach men instead of women? They say it means rate.
No, it cannot mean rape.
Because low data is sometimes to say to them.
What do you go to men to satisfy your lust, engage in highway robbery and commit evil deeds in your gatherings? Then they had no answer to offer other than to say bring Allah's chastisement upon us. If you are truthful, in another verse, he says, and you are doing that fascia and act, which no other people have ever done before you among all the world's
people had raped before a lot by the Senate. So this was not a new act if it was right. Secondly, but also, globally, Salem is saying to them, instead of men take the women. But if he's saying that you write men, and then he says no, why don't you go and rape the women? That doesn't make sense either.
So obviously, it's not right. And the tuna in Arabic to approach translated in English and Arabic the word yFT. When it's talked about when it talks about relationships, it means sexual act.
And there is a Hadith from Francois Sinatra, somebody that he said about married people that I noticed children here. It says Men add
in Broto fee to Korea, then he is cursed whoever has sexual intercourse from the
what are we gonna say? What's what's a polite word to say?
For from Korea, that doesn't do you know what remains for the older people? Okay. Then. This is in one Hadith, it's Asian. It says that that have disbelieved in Allah and His messenger. And another one it says that it is it's a major sin which is cursed. Lana,
no mercy from Allah for people who do that. And obviously brothers, sisters, anything that is haram. Anything that is haram is harmful. Haram, take away the A ha. What does it become?
Always remember that haram means harm. Allah says something is forbidden only because it's harmful. He wants to protect you. So the reason I said that hadith is because the word Yeti approach
is the same word used here men approaching me. So Allah when he speaks in the Quran, he speaks with with with manners and etiquette and eloquence doesn't sit there talking like you're reading stuff at all out in a dirty book. So that's why that culminated reality approach men, we know what it means. Therefore, it means none other than sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse, literally sexual intercourse, men and men.
And you know what that means? There's only one way a man can have sexual intercourse with another man.
That's the act that the people of Lord were doing knowingly and deliberately.
So nobody said I've tried to convince them to stay away from that and go the natural way, but they did not listen.
So then he comes to the angels. He didn't know they were angels. He said, Look, I apologize. You know, he tried to talk to them. He tried. And then that's when he realized he's
revealed Himself and He said to him, he didn't reveal himself physically he revealed his identity. And he said to him in now, we are messengers from you.
Don't worry, we are going to save you and your family. tomorrow in the morning, we will destroy them.
And he said in the night, you and your family go and run away. What are your traffic and income when
one of you even look back then he will turn your head just run and keep going.
We are going to destroy the people of this land of complete and utter destruction. Now this this story that I'm telling is not just in the Quran, it's also in the news.
estimate in the Old Testament, the New Testament is what Christians call the Bible. But we said Bible means hold the book. So it's in the New Testament, the Christian has called the Bible now. And the Torah of the Old Testament sent upon Moses, nothing new.
lota Alayhis Salam, he said, What am I going to do about this people should be nice and safe to move. I will take care of them. He opened the door. They sociably and very handsome. And there's a couple of narrations one says that he poked them, he turned to hit one of his wings or a feather towards their eyes. And he poked their eyes until they became temporarily blinded, they couldn't see.
In another narration, it says that he held some dust and he blew it. And he said chahatein Who
made the faces be blinded.
Whatever narration is correct. What is true is what the Quran says. And that is they became blinded. They became blinded, they couldn't see what call and they screen Sahara. Now a lot note has done magic on us. He's done sorcery upon us. Look, he doesn't think we can't see anymore.
And in the Quran, it says they moved, then they moved away and then went back to their homes while they were touching the walls. This is another evidence in the Quran that they could not see if there was holding the walls and they were said, you get you did sorcery upon us yellow tomorrow in the morning you will see tomorrow in the morning, you will see our wrath.
That's what they said.
Low toleration and carried his family pack their bags. And Allah says in the Quran, when a Jaina home besar Allah saved Lord and his daughters and some of the people that believed in him. The Sahara, Sahara is the means in the darkness of the night. Sahara means a night that has no moon, extremely dark, and the depth of the mountain everybody's asleep. And if nothing else, Allah says We saved him he ran away in the depths of the night. Now remember when they said you shall see our wrath in the morning?
Allah says in the Quran that he replied, He says, For sebahagian booklet and another one was stuck, so to come out, but instead of them, showing him a wrathful morning, Allah surprised them with a wrathful morning from him.
As soon as the sun rose, it was at sunrise. They had just woken up some of them.
And Allah describes
the graphic torment as he took the entire cities obliterated them completely off the face of the earth into non existence.
Allah describes this in several passages in the Quran, I'll just refer to one.
Munna and when our command came to pass, Johanna LEA has a feeling we turn the town upside down. What was on the top became at the bottom.
What I'm calling now I leave her her job at the Missy Jeanne Mahmoud.
And we rained on it on all of its towns stones have baked claim. stones have baked clean.
One after another,
like rain in another verse, Allah says what am I leaving? We rained upon them, you know how rain comes down exactly like that.
But instead of water.
They were what looked like ashes
that were mixed with baked clay.
Clay from Earth, but baked, meaning it was soldiering hop.
And the stones was said to be most likely slaked so there were layers of stone that were mixed. Minh said Jean, meaning it was covered it was mixed with baked clay.
And geologists today tell us there is only one place where such type of rocks scorching with fire like that baked and stone with clay that can come out of only from volcanoes.
Volcanic eruptions is what comes out of them. Today they call it the chemical name for it is sulfur. They've heard of sulfur. That's what it is. And in ancient terms in the Bible, it's also called Brimstone
common sensical brimstone. In chemical terms scientific terms called sulfur and sulfur
are part of the material of the ashes of volcanic eruptions there. That's known.
if a volcano erupts and these ashes are flying these rocks and Bay clay, how would they come down?
Have you ever seen a volcano erupt? It showers like rain.
And Allah describes it in several passages giving different descriptions and graphics, says what I'm talking about either you can we rained upon them a charlatan many stones Mrs. Jean mixed with baked clay.
geologists say that when these ashes come out, they are more than 180 degrees Celsius. They come right through you doesn't matter how they're just small rocks that will penetrate right through a person and rip them to pieces. Because there's rain coming down upon you like that. It's just cutting and ripping your body apart. Little tiny fragments are the points. That's how they fell upon the people of Sodom and Gomorrah.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala also tells us that it sunk in went under the earth. Now there are two stories about this. The first story which is more common, is that as your grill Allah has set up in the angels rebellion, took his actual form. And he took one feather from the tip of his wing. And he immersed that under the cities. He lifted it up so high into the heavens that narration says that the angels could hear the crowing of their roosters. And they the people of Sodom and Gomorrah could hear that the speed Subhanallah of the angels in the heavens. And then he twisted the earth upside down and slammed it into the earth
Imam even harsher.
One of the traditional scholars for those of you who know what I'm talking about, he says that the Dead Sea came about because of that.
However, brothers and sisters I in a profit series I gave about seven years ago, I mentioned this as if he was effect. But Subhanallah people make mistakes. And as you research more and learn more, I now have changed that position and found through more research that this actually cannot be relied on. It's not even a hadith that is authentic from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and most likely, even even cathedra Rabbi like the one who wrote the book of the prophet stories and difficile, the famous development Kathina. He mentioned this as well, but he does not refer to it as an authentic hadith. So it's most likely from the Israelite traditions, Allahu Allah, only Allah Medina knows,
but it doesn't really, we can't rely on that. Neither from text or even from common sense. Research today. And scientific discoveries show us that most likely, and this research has been done, you can read about it from scientists, that there was land there, there were people there, this has been established, there are signs of people's people being there. And there are also signs of earthquakes that have happened in that region many, many times. And most likely it was an earthquake, that the and most likely the land wasn't on the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea has been there for hundreds of 1000s of years actually. But the land the homes were around in the mountainous volcanic regions. They're
all volcanic regions around the Dead Sea.
And they were all around there. And what happened, an earthquake happened and the land was sunk underneath. And now you look at the whole plane. It's barren, there's nothing
there's nothing, Allah obliterated them. And they can still today and you can see
booton You know Bhutanese Bhutan rocks, it's what they make ashphalt out of, they melt it and they put the rocks together in ashphalt. They find that sometimes floating on top of the Dead Sea and as a result of volcanoes, right and as Brimstone there, there's lots of sulfur, which explains why the Dead Sea is extremely salty. One of the most saltiest and it's not really an ocean. It's a lake.
A big lake. One of the saltiest lakes on Earth. There are salty lakes with is one of the most salty it's three times more saltier than the normal ocean then the Pacific Ocean Indian Ocean Atlantic Ocean.
It's so salty, that the Dead Sea
it's very difficult to sink in.
You go in there and just flood natural
and the Dead Sea there is nothing.
There's no big organisms living in there. No, no big creatures living in it. No fish. Nothing.
No big creatures. There are maybe two
Tiny really tiny microscopic organisms Yes. But there are no living big creatures in the sea and that's why it's called the Dead Sea Oberhelman yet Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam talked about the Dead Sea, there are Hadith about it. And he says, that it is, there is it is so impure, nothing lives in it, nothing meaning nothing you can see with the eye creatures that love large organisms. So there is no good in the water. Some say today that they use it for some skin healing, maybe. But here's the thing that we say, just because something has no benefit, we don't mean that it has entirely no benefit. It just means overall, it has no benefit. Just like alcohol. In the Quran, Allah says that
alcohol and gambling is forbidden.
They have some benefit, but they harm outweighs its benefit. So is there benefit in alcohol and gambling? Yes, there is. But its harm outweighs its benefit. Therefore, we're all it has an impure, the Dead Sea has some benefit, but majority of it is not benefit beneficial.
My brothers and sisters, they say that they used to be land, they used to be greenery and trees and things like that. And now it's all gone from there after the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
And so my brothers and sisters that people have looked were destroyed,
not just destroyed, obliterated, like I mean, the people have saw the hand would remember we rarely spoke about them. At least we still have their buildings left.
The Pharaohs we have the Egyptian you know the the pyramids and the Sphinx and all that lift. We have from all sorts of people, the remnants, artifacts, archeological findings Subhanallah, except for the people of a lot. Now some discoveries say that they found remnants, some a little utensils and stuff from people who live there. They say they weren't able to living here. If you ever heard of the Dead Sea Scrolls, it would have been okay, some scrolls which they found there. Yeah, truly, they back a really long time ago. And they say it's from the Bible, but Subhanallah you know What's strange about it is they're called manuscripts, things that are in the Dead Sea Scrolls when you
read them, they actually support the Quranic the Quranic message, and SubhanAllah. They're less supportive of the current bible they have today. It doesn't talk about the Trinity for example, at all, there's nothing about the Trinity or Jesus being God, Son begotten Son, begotten son is not a bad
so it's more supportive of the Quran than it is all the current Bible.
It's just a few fragments they found SubhanAllah. Anyway, Brothers and Sisters in Islam, that is the place of the people of Lord.
Allah Subhana Allah says in many different passages cut the.com will open in more setting the people of Lord said that all the messengers will lie is it called for whom load on another telephone when their brother and Allah called logos and their brother and meaning the one who was sent to them and lived among them, do you not fear Allah in Nila congra soon? I mean, I am a trustworthy messenger to you please believe me for the hola hola LT and also fear Allah meaning respect the laws the decisions and his commands and obey obey what I'm telling you one that is no Comala him in Agile I don't ask you for any money I don't want anything for it Look, I'm just sincerely genuinely really
want the best for you in Algeria in law Ramadan, I mean, my reward is from Allah the Lord of all mankind. I don't want anything from you, you know? And this is a sign of someone who's genuine really wants good for the people that do in the Quran. I mean, Allah Allah need your sexual intercourse with males, among all people of the world. You do this no one else does this. Whether their own or mahalo color calm and you abandon what Allah created for you naturally for you to enjoy women. Can't you see that? And he said, Allah Allah, Allah originated them for you. You can see you have different sexual organs, these social organs they work together fine up reproduce from them,
they are perfectly put in place and anyone with a common mind can understand this is how it's meant to be done do what you are doing even if you're doing it don't do it. It's not the right act.
Color color camera as well as you can create it for you the correct mates they were meant to put your mates well and to calm and I don't know you are people who are transgressing you are doing things outside of the boundaries you're not meant to go that that fine I'm going to be doing this stuff.
And many many other verses also in sort of Lanka bought last night that I mentioned many other verses my brothers and sisters did actually appears in what I think several verses in the Quran many chapters.
Allah either repeats this story over and over again.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam
Hello, colleagues Salam, there's nothing more mentioned about him in the Quran after that incident. And unfortunately, this is what happened to them.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I just want to point out now some lessons to learn from this, especially in our current time.
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
and this hadith is in no measure,
he has been authenticated by the Mohammed with a little Bernie.
learn how to infer hisher
if you're coming up on hat you already know
there has never been a time. Hamilton SLM said, There has never been a time
among any people that ever existed from now till the end of time.
Where indecent sexual acts wrong sexual acts. The cold fascia outrageous acts
became manifest among the people and they started to parade about it, meaning it became normal.
In Fisher, free him upon what OSHA allotted I'm talkin mobile slapping Molina model,
that terminal illnesses and diseases which they have never seen before.
What spread among them
as a result of them, transgressing the boundaries,
then doing these illegal sexual activities.
This illegal sexual activities is not only men having intercourse, sexual intercourse with men,
but also other sexual activities among heterosexuals that are not right.
Why Prophet peace be upon him said it's because they produce harm and diseases upon you, and they spread like an epidemic that had never been before.
Obviously, there is a cure for it from science and I've said there isn't a disease that appears except there is a cure for it, except for two things they have no cure. He said old age has no cure and death death has no cure. But he said liquidity there in the world every disease has a cure. But the problem is that why create new diseases for ourselves and and try to find their QR before millions of people die from them.
The diseases that we know about today that are result of indecent sexual immodest acts are aids.
You will know about AIDS, autoimmune disease.
There is no cure to it till today. Millions of people have died from AIDS, irreversible, HIV, human immuno
what virus? What is it?
What is it called? Yeah, pharmacist
Immuno Deficiency virus no D, I forgot about that. Okay. So human immunodeficiency virus, it's a virus that attacks your immune system, and it turns your immune system against you. So your own body thinks that you have been invaded, but it's actually your body invading your own body and turns into AIDS.
It's STDs, sexually transmitted diseases, STI is sexually transmitted infections. And this one hurts me a lot this panel not when I hear about abortions. Abortions are happening as a result of these types of illegal sexual acts. Of course, they do happen among married couples, but they also happen a lot among unmarried couples, probably even more according to studies or loved one.
And so Pamela looked at this assessment of global situation and trends. From the sorry, the
World Health Organization I talk about global situation translate said since the beginning of the epidemic, HIV, more than 70 million people have been infected with the HIV virus and about 35 million people have died of HIV. globally. 36 point 9 million people were living with HIV at the end of the year 2017 36 to nearly 40, and nearly 40 million people are living with it.
The African region remains most severely affected with nearly one in every 25 adults. It's not to have a go at any Africans. But just that's what it shows that Allahu Allah ma went then maybe along the history of love or ILM and the time of slavery.
So the black people they did really kaput a lot in history. We all know about their plight. They are our brothers and Islam and it's that kind of actually liberated them. However, we don't know about what had happened to them with the white man and enslaving the black man especially in Africa. Allahu IAM is only my theory or love or Anna from studies. I think that HIV and AIDS spread in Africa as a result of
A lot of colonisation and rape and so on and so forth,
slavery and all that stuff. So they are living with HIV and accounting for nearly two thirds of the people living in HIV worldwide.
Most studies have told us that babies in Africa are the most affected by eights, babies,
millions of babies per year. Why? Because it's an infectious disease. And if a mother is pregnant with AIDS, that child automatically has, and it's what is their crime.
And here is the killer.
most of those living with HIV 76%
and 69% of males were gay.
of the people infected with HIV were males who were gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men.
And SM made all these names.
In 2010, the most recent year for which new HIV infection data are available, men accounted for 80% of the estimated new HIV infections.
This data is from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
is not not from Muslims. Is it from non Muslim scientists who are telling us the truth that the ones who are most prone to HIV and AIDS are gay men, more than women,
STDs and STI is more common in gay men. Again, this is a fact and heterosexual sexuals who have multiple partners. So HIV is less apparent in heterosexual men and men who just slightly women, but a more in men who have multiple sex partners, Xena Yan is in adultery and fornication, and less in women for some reason.
The Quran in surah, Israel said, while Takara was Zina do not even come close to adultery or fornication. Adultery is when you're married, and you sleep with someone else that is not your wife or husband. Fornication is when you're not married and you sleep around men or women. It's called Xena in Arabic, Xena
and it's in her literally means sexual intercourse with someone you are not allowed to have sexual intercourse attributed to have it with.
the act of a man having intercourse with an event is called Xena. But there's another word the quarterly what I don't like calling a liquid because Prophet Lodi Salem. That's his name. He was a prophet of Allah and like to attach that with this act.
A man sleeping with a woman that is not lawful for him or her is called Xena.
But there is a lesser extent in Arabic We also call stuff that leads to Zina in case having done all that stuff looking. That's called also called Zina, but it's not the Zeno of interval, not a major sin. It's minor. It's the stuff that leads to Zina, but it's all called is inevitable stuff that leads to Xena, right? They're minor sins, they go away with repentance and praise and so on and so forth. But if you keep repeating them over and over again, they turn into major sins. So these minor stuff become major after repeating constantly and they can become addictive. So no one can say, you know, I didn't commit sexual intercourse, but I did everything else. That's also a form of zener but
not the actual zener that is the major sin, but it accumulates as I said, Allah says do not come close to it. It is an outrageous act and a pathway with an evil End.
And then Allah says, when I talk to just before when I talk to the Oladipo, and do not kill your children,
and that is a result of abortion, don't abort your children. And do not kill them literally have shelter in love, just because you fear that you will not be able to raise them and provide for them
in Washington National.
Remember it is as soon as providing your children with a outcome and we are the ones who are providing you swinging.
Risk is not a new provision is not from you could die tomorrow who provides that? Allah provides them don't kill don't matter.
My brothers and sisters abortion,
the event abandonment of children, divorces, suicides, STDs, HIV and AIDS, abuse of women increase of violence towards women, objectifying women, and now even objectifying men. The world has changed Subhanallah even men have become a sexual object Subhanallah all of these things have occurred now in the last in the 21st century. And in the 20th century, when people started to exceed the boundaries of what was sexually allowed.
Now you might be thinking well, disbelievers used to do Zina No, actually Xena and sexual intercourse, adultery and fornication was not even practiced by non Muslims for a very long time.
Yes, there were hidden in practice during development for a very long time. It wasn't just well, I've got I heard a very old record in 1950s, of a 16 year old girl having an interview, broadcaster interview, and she doesn't have a boyfriend. And she's talking about Nana, I'm still a virgin, I don't have boyfriends until I'm actually married. And this was the norm. It's not just her, it was a norm among teenagers in that time. Right? So that is the committee's zener only now, you know, people don't want to get married even and we can understand why in the western, there are lots of reasons, you know, they say that the laws then you know, you're stuck, and she takes away all this
money and all of that stuff, and you don't get to see your children up. But other than that, people don't want to commit anymore. They'd rather have partners, girlfriends, boyfriends, why? Because there's no commitment, or there's less commitment.
there's no difference between a boy and a girl sleeping together like a married couple. But they're not allowed to get married. That's, that's absurd. I mean, I don't know how that makes sense. A 15 year old and a 16 year old, can be together and do everything. A married couple does, can even have children. She didn't get pregnant, have a child be a mother, but they're not allowed to be legally married.
Now, this is the laws of the land that we live in, and we have to abide by the laws. We don't have to agree with them. But we do have to abide by the laws. In Australia. gay marriages are also now an illegal again, we as Muslims, we don't have to agree with it. But we don't. You know, we don't we don't we have to abide by the laws. We don't have to do it ourselves. But we can't go out causing havoc, destruction, causing, you know, injustice and so on. Which brings me to something how do we treat gay people? How do we treat LGBT people? These new names that we heard of? Well, in the history of Islam, Arabs never knew homosexuals, but it's actually not in our history. We don't know.
We don't know anything about homosexuality. It's not in our history books. Well, you might think that people have loved what homosexuals want in today's terms, maybe. But there wasn't really like that the people of Lord, all we know about is that the crime they did was the act of sexual intercourse between men and men. Because local Instagram says in Neelima, Malcolm, I am innocent of your action.
So it wasn't actually the feeling which they had, that they were destroyed for. All the thoughts they had, that they were destroyed for, even though they were sinful. But it was the fact that they practiced the act over and over and over again, number one, number two, it became their norm. Number three, they were sent messengers, and they didn't stop number four, there was nothing wrong with them. They were able to have women and they didn't do it. And so and another another reason they weren't doing highway robbery, they will prefer though, disbelievers they reject Mr. Salas my dad destroyed. But today's age, we don't know what this is.
All we know is that that act is forbidden in Islam.
But how do we treat gay people gay people, this person who has emotional psychological and physical sexual attraction to another man, and also a woman, they call it these other names, and we've got children. Yeah, don't like to talk about these things. We're in the masjid as well. And Hamdulillah we prefer not to say these things. However, how do we deal with these people? As Muslims, we're not allowed to harm them. We're not allowed to abuse them.
They are still humans. A gay person, Muslim, can still be a Muslim, so long as he or she does not believe or try to say that it is halal.
To change the verses of the Quran, they have to admit that it is haram.
They do to themselves we don't want to know it.
And maybe it did happen in the times of the other prophets that came later. Maybe it did happen a time Muhammad Allah says it was very discreet was very private. If it did happen. Nobody knew about it, and no one asked about it. I process and didn't go out of his way saying find it. Didn't ask just left it. Okay. However, we do have something close to that. We have what we call in Arabic, and I'll finish with this concept. One enough.
In Arabic in English, you would find if you looked it up in a dictionary, it means effeminate, effeminate, which means a man who has characteristics of a woman
physical emotional, in action, the skin the way that they talk, their voice, tone, all of that stuff. We see that there are some men who have a lot of feminine features
and they existed at the time of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
that the process was so limited. And there was, some of them were servants and slaves, others were free men. And one of them was a slave of a more Salomon, the process and his wife, slavery in that time was still alright. But there were conditions of how to treat him and to treat them well and Islam and respect them and give them their rights.
Say he, this particular effeminate one, if that was the servant of almost Elena,
that the hadith is, is embodying
this, he was allowed.
Or she I don't, I don't know. But we just say he because in Arabic, he can apply also to feminine things, right, like the wall would call it he, right. And that's why Allah is not a male or female, but we still say he is just a language. So he was allowed to be with alone with females and with males, with men and women, was allowed to mix with the men and mix with the women freely.
But one day, this
is the best term today we use this intersex and intersex person he came to, he overheard him say to another man,
you know, when you enter that land
of the land of
some land, and you're going to see the daughter of someone so I can tell you if you're interested in her. She's got seven rolls on her back and four rolls on her stomach. That's what he said. Like it's trying to say she's, she's overweight or whatever, which is not a nice thing to say at all. However, there's what he said, When approximate I sent him overheard this effeminate man talking like that, he became, he was not happy with what he said. And then he said, You are no longer allowed to mix with the women alone.
You're not allowed to see them now like to be in private with them not to see them with that pressure. Because you have betrayed that trust. So long as he was effeminate and the way he is an intersex person process and didn't you know, he wasn't bothered with him? He didn't fear that he's going to harm the women or stop rollout him right women or abused women or, which is not to say that heterosexual men are going to do that with men. No, no. But he allowed him freely to be with women. Right? But once he started to abuse their rights by telling other men about the features, they primal features, a forbidden. Why? If a bit in because he was causing harm to the minute, this is
Now, do we know sexual interest now this comes to a very delicate point. There all the scholars all the mother head, they talk about this, they say and we'll have an Earth is a man or a person who on the outside has got features that you can't tell whether he is a man or a woman.
That's without looking anything without looking at his private clubs. Looking on the outside. You can see that from the clothing from the way they were their skin, their eyes, maybe their chest, all that stuff. It looks like a woman. It's got woman features very clear. They talk like a woman they walk like woman they're not sure if it's a man or a woman. So today, they're called intersex people.
And it's considered offensive to say
what's the other word hermaphrodite? That's an offensive word today you got to say intersex people. And usually what happens with these guys is they've got both they have both organs. Sometimes they have the male organ and the female organ, sometimes they don't have any organs at all. And sometimes they have features on the outside of women so that they're all sorts, but they're born with a deformity. They're not like pure, just physically male or physically female altogether. And usually they show up puberty. So Islam talks about these people, and it gives them their rights. Props are seldom allow them to roam freely. They weren't a harm to anybody, men or women. But when they
transgressed when they started doing that stuff. He said, Okay, you're not allowed to do that. Now these ones they didn't really It didn't have sexual desires towards women, or towards men. However, the scholars did talk about it. They said
these types of people, if surgery is allowed, they are allowed to change themselves to whatever gender they want, according to which one they are closest to which one they have more features of. Some of my lab said if they have a wound, they can get pregnant, then they can do surgery to become a complete woman and they're treated like a woman. If they have more masculine features, then they can do a surgery to change completely to a male and they're treated like a man they can marry a woman being like a normal man.
Or some scholar said they can choose which gender they want to be because we don't know their psychology and their emotion on the inside. whichever one they feel closer to they can be that and then we treat them as that. But so long as they're the way they are. They have both
features, we treat them neither male, male or female. And they're allowed to run because it is, but that's only if we can see that they don't have desires. So they are never known to have desires for man or woman, they're allowed to be with both of them. But if they are known to have these desires, but they are acting in a certain way, then we forbid them. Now,
there are men
who are effeminate, but all the physical features are men,
completely men, they're also called Bournemouth. But Mohandas not physically, we say that deliberately acting like that. You're not allowed to do that.
You're a male, you're capable of doing all this stuff, you have those emotions. And now you're acting like you're that because you think you are not a male. Well, in Islam, this is not acceptable.
And our prophets, Allah, so Allah in effect in the Quran, Allah says, if you are a male or female, when I attend Nana, football, Allahu Akbar malaba. Neither the male or the females with the garden, it goes on by talking about males and females says, Men should not wish to be women and women should not wish to be men. And when you believe in God in Allah, it becomes easier for you because you are now respecting a loss decision in the way that he made you. And that's why even like, changing your facial features, other than talking about that stuff, changing our facial features is haram, too. For example, tattooing is hard on why because you are permanently changing your skin color
pigmentation is haram. Right? Changing your nose when there is no problem in you. If there is a problem a deformity, then yes, you are allowed. Let's say you had an accident, there's deformity whatever reason, it may be some women as a result of childbirth, body changes, and it becomes different than what it was. And they can do surgery to fix it. And that's okay. Plastic surgery. But other than that, it's haram. You're meant to respect the way God made you and feel proud of the way you are. And this is really good for your mental state, is that helps in that. So Allah says, men and women be the way you are, because that's why I made you and that's the way things can go.
Done each one of you. Now, you might ask, well, Some men are born with a little bit more hormones like women and some women are born with a bit more testosterone, like some more estrogen in men and a little bit more testosterone in women than normal. That's fine. That's okay. Whoever said that's not wrong. You know, some men women, we find that they don't have like the typical feminine girl. And sometimes we say boys or men not act like the typical men. Sometimes, they're just like that. And our scholars have already talked about that. They say there are some who are naturally effeminate. Some men have always been like that, that just carved out for themselves. They don't
think about it, but they just act a little bit more feminine, the typical feminine according to what now in society,
we still treat them as men. And we acknowledge that the way they are we accept them the way they are. Also, Elisa Selim also said Do not abuse these people.
He said, any Muslim who calls another Muslim man effeminate
has earned the curse of Allah. And any person who calls another
100, hermaphrodite, and intersex even if he is to call him that name. It is because he is cursed as well. You're not allowed to call people that name. Even if you're joking. Shouldn't
all right, we shouldn't really talk. If you're joking, you should you don't own the curse, but it's still forbidden. So don't call each other even that name. So beauty, so that you can see our strong respect in our society. Now, I know Subhanallah a couple of men who are married, they've got children, their religious Michelle, are they proud to do everything? But Subhanallah Wallahi.
I challenge any of you that if you were to meet him just by himself, you will think he is gay. But he's not everything about him. His skin, the way he talks, the way he walks, the way he moves. Even his words everything is like an effeminate men, but that's how he is naturally. Well, like, it's actually a really good man. I respect and loves his deen is very knowledgeable, married and respected, loyal to his wife loyal to his children, amazing men SubhanAllah. And some women are like that, it doesn't mean
that they have something abnormal. And it doesn't mean you aren't gay. It doesn't really mean that society and the environment make you think like that. Maybe the way you were raised. But anyway, that's a separate lecture. I could talk about one day insha Allah.
So my brothers and sisters just because somebody has a bit more hormones here or it'd be more hormones, that doesn't mean that you are now something else that you are not. We accept you the way you are.
that you've been hamdulillah so my brothers and sisters oh, by the way, I have gay neighbors. Okay, from that mall on eight
and they say thank you.
Nothing wrong with that.
My last month I recorded them, you know, to Islam or whatever.
Yeah, what we are against is the act. What they do privately in their hands. They
Business and we need to abide by the law of the land. Remember Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, he told us, whoever sees something wrong and evil or an injustice, change it physically. But if you can't change it physically, then with your mouth speak, but if you can't even speak, then at least in your heart, with only god awful in Madras also, as I said, You are not asked to do more than that about for the man means you are not asked to do more than that. Fellas, if you in your heart, you disagree with it, you know that it's not right, then that's enough. You don't have to do more than that. Don't go out of your way, in this country. This is what applies physically and verbally. Leave it
you can teach your children you can teach your community in the masjid we can teach, you know, there are laws and 100 others that say that, you know, you can discriminate, for example, you have a chef and you don't want it to be gay, that's fine. You know, the Lord does support that. But other than that outside in a society in the community, there's contract you're a citizen of you know, we can't we can't go in and cause havoc or distress and things like that and, and and harm just because we don't agree with something. May Allah subhanahu wa grant us understanding patience and perseverance that last Mandela show us the right way can make us follow it and may Allah show us the wrong way
and help us to avoid it. I thank you for listening from the citizens traveler. Next week, we will talk about the next profit, which is Yakov and Yusuf Ali. So that's from one of my favorite stories to share and I'll see you next week. Or Salam Amina Muhammad Allah annual software Dragon was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
