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

hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah All praises due to alignment as Peace and blessings beyond the last messenger of Allah.

00:00:40--> 00:00:41

The

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

role of youth

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

in the oma

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

is a critical

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

role

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

as youth,

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

you represent the future,

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

what happens to you now?

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

The decisions you make now

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

will determine the future for the oma.

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

So it is very important

00:01:18--> 00:01:25

for you to be clear as to what role you should be playing.

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

Right now, you are in a

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

medical institution

00:01:36--> 00:01:40

preparing yourselves for the medical profession,

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

which is a good thing.

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

It's a service to the oma.

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

However,

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

a generation ago,

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

people did the same thing.

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

10 years ago, 20 years ago,

00:02:05--> 00:02:15

somebody was standing on a stage like this, and addressing you are those who came before you in the same way.

00:02:17--> 00:02:21

But the 10 years have passed 20 years have passed?

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

And

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

is there any difference?

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

The product

00:02:29--> 00:02:39

that you will be from the university is no different from the product of 10 years ago,

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

or 20 years ago.

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

And we see the state of the oma

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

as it is

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

fragmented,

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

attacking each other

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

unable to play

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

the role

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

of

00:03:06--> 00:03:10

calling to good than a last month Allah

00:03:11--> 00:03:18

gave us when he described us as being the best of nations, quantum chromatin

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

Odisha.

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

When he gave us that

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

status,

00:03:27--> 00:03:32

he gave us it on the basis that we call to the good

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

we prohibit the evil

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

and we believe in Allah.

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

So we have to ask ourselves,

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

how are we calling to the good

00:03:51--> 00:03:57

any different from the way the previous batch

00:03:58--> 00:04:01

of students call to the good

00:04:03--> 00:04:08

because if there is no difference, then there will be no change

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

from the

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

area of medicine because that's where you're in.

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

That's the field that you are based in.

00:04:22--> 00:04:29

So everyone, every member of society has a role to play

00:04:31--> 00:04:39

based on the area in which they're working the knowledge which they have the abilities which Allah has blessed them with.

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

So

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

I would encourage you

00:04:49--> 00:04:54

to think, as they say, outside of the box.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

Right now, you're in a box which the

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

Previous batch was and the previous batch before them were unnaturally, the box produces the same results.

00:05:09--> 00:05:14

To keep doing the same things, you'll get the same results

00:05:16--> 00:05:19

for you to expect different results while doing the same things.

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

This is illogical.

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

It can't happen, it won't happen.

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

So

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

how could we think beyond the box?

00:05:38--> 00:05:44

What I would suggest, as I've spoke, said, suggested to some of the organizers

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

that

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

we should set higher goals.

00:05:53--> 00:06:01

Beyond just simply graduating as doctors and going out and being doctors.

00:06:04--> 00:06:09

There are already many in the medical cut

00:06:10--> 00:06:16

universities, colleges across the country, and there are many who are already doing the same thing.

00:06:18--> 00:06:23

How about trying to do something else?

00:06:24--> 00:06:25

something different,

00:06:27--> 00:06:30

something which can impact on

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

Pakistan,

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

on the Muslim world.

00:06:39--> 00:06:42

Some of you might think, well, who are we?

00:06:43--> 00:06:53

We're just regular students like everybody else. What could we do that would have that kind of impact on the whole of Pakistan and the world?

00:06:54--> 00:06:54

Well,

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

I always tell people,

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

whenever I discuss this type of thinking,

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

that if somebody were to have said

00:07:07--> 00:07:08

to my parents,

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

who were non Muslims,

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

in Jamaica,

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

when I was born,

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

that I would become a Muslim,

00:07:24--> 00:07:26

would study and become

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

a Muslim scholar,

00:07:31--> 00:07:44

and will become a teacher of Muslims. With a university with over 200,000 students across the world, they would have looked at that person and said, You're mad.

00:07:45--> 00:07:48

This is not possible. He's not even a Muslim.

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

But Allahu Akbar,

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

Allahu Akbar.

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

Allah can make the impossible possible.

00:08:04--> 00:08:10

What we look at as being impossible right now, a lot can make it happen.

00:08:12--> 00:08:16

It's really about us committing.

00:08:17--> 00:08:22

It's about us committing to try to make a change.

00:08:25--> 00:08:28

Leave the job of possible or impossible to Allah.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

If we make the effort, then a law can make it happen.

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

So this is why I propose

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

to the

00:08:45--> 00:08:51

organizers that we need to set a goal

00:08:52--> 00:08:58

a high status goal as students,

00:09:00--> 00:09:07

which is beyond just graduating as a doctor, getting out and being a doctor.

00:09:09--> 00:09:16

If I were to ask each and every one of you, why did you choose medicine?

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

What do you think the answer is gonna be?

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

What do you think the answer is going to be?

00:09:30--> 00:09:30

Now

00:09:35--> 00:09:35

how to

00:09:39--> 00:09:51

helping humanity? That's nice. But I'm sure if you really ask the people, you know that helping humanity that will be 1%.

00:09:52--> 00:09:58

The 99% are going to be as one brother said, you know

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

The rupees

00:10:03--> 00:10:09

the money because medicine doctors make more money

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

than other professions.

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

That's why we're being doctors.

00:10:17--> 00:10:23

So, what is the mean means that we are driven by

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

material gain.

00:10:27--> 00:10:39

We are in fact, no different from students, non Muslim students in America, Canada, France, no different

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

they have the same thinking.

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

And because of that,

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

because of that,

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

we have characteristics

00:10:58--> 00:11:01

which are hated in Islam

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

characteristics which are hated in Islam,

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

but which are common to students all over the world.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

And the main characteristic

00:11:19--> 00:11:23

for which students are known globally

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

is cheating.

00:11:30--> 00:11:30

Cheating

00:11:35--> 00:11:40

students, motivated by material,

00:11:41--> 00:11:47

follow the principle Machiavellian principle of by any means necessary.

00:11:49--> 00:11:55

If this will get me the marks, which will get me the position, get me the job, I'm ready to do it.

00:11:58--> 00:12:01

So if I were to ask you as students,

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

how many of you

00:12:05--> 00:12:07

can raise his or her hand

00:12:08--> 00:12:21

and say, what law he by a law, I have never cheated on any test or examination? Since I've been in this

00:12:23--> 00:12:40

university or in school? If you put your hand up for me now, can you do that? Well law he's swearing by a law, I see among the women 123456 hands among the men 1234

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

that is the reality

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

can we change society with that,

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

this is the problem.

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

We are a product of a system

00:13:00--> 00:13:04

a system which has been developed not by us,

00:13:05--> 00:13:10

it has been developed in the West in western civilization.

00:13:11--> 00:13:26

The medical training the Medical Teaching system that we have here is a clone of what is in Cornell or wherever the great medical universities of the west

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

where the educational system

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

is has been produced in a secular

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

environment.

00:13:44--> 00:13:56

And as such, all of the texts, all of the modes of teaching and everything have been honed, that has been, you know, developed

00:13:57--> 00:14:00

to promote this way of thinking.

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

So, how to change it?

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

If you're not a part of the solution,

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

then you are a part of

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

the problem.

00:14:19--> 00:14:26

How do we change from being a part of the problem to being a part of the solution?

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

This is why I said we need to set

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

goals beyond the box.

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

What went before when before

00:14:45--> 00:14:50

we are here now, what do we do with now? For one?

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

I would like you

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

I would like you because

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

Can I ask

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

there any non Muslims here? Can you put your hand up?

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

We don't have any non Muslims, everybody's Muslim here.

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

So

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

it shouldn't be difficult for us to all raise our hands now

00:15:18--> 00:15:25

and swear by a law that from this day onwards, we will never cheat again.

00:15:30--> 00:15:30

Are you ready?

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

Can we see those hands?

00:15:34--> 00:15:37

How can we repeat while law he

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

again wall law he

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

I will never

00:15:46--> 00:15:50

cheat on any examination

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

or test

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

for the rest of my life.

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

Okay.

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

That's the point, a starting point.

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

You know it's evil.

00:16:10--> 00:16:13

Because the prophets of Salaam said man rashanna.

00:16:14--> 00:16:19

fillet samina whoever cheats us is not about us, it's not the true Muslim, you're fake.

00:16:21--> 00:16:24

If cheating is your way,

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

then you are a fake Muslim, you might have the name Fatima, or Muhammad.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

But you are not a true Muslim.

00:16:33--> 00:16:36

Because this is not the characteristic of a true Muslim.

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

And you know, Prophet Muhammad, Allah

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

had said

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

that there would be people

00:16:47--> 00:16:50

who would do the deeds

00:16:51--> 00:17:00

of the people of paradise. The things which will take people to paradise praying, fasting, hydrolysis, they will do these deeds

00:17:01--> 00:17:12

as it appears to people, but they would be from the people of hell. This is in Sahih Muslim, that they would be from the people of hell.

00:17:14--> 00:17:15

Meaning that

00:17:18--> 00:17:24

there will be a lot of people, the most common name in the world today is what Muhammad,

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

there will be a lot of people in hell with the name Muhammad.

00:17:31--> 00:17:34

And a lot of people in hell with the name fathima.

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

This is reality.

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

These names are not going to take us to paradise.

00:17:43--> 00:17:56

It is living Islam, that's going to do it. So the goal, what can we set? What How can we change this situation? How can we be a part of the solution?

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

set the goal

00:18:01--> 00:18:04

to be more than just a regular doctor.

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

Be a specialist.

00:18:11--> 00:18:16

Beyond specialization till you become a teacher.

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

As a teacher of medicine,

00:18:21--> 00:18:33

you are now in a position to change things. As a regular doctor, you can only do what regular doctors do, at least if you don't cheat, that's good.

00:18:34--> 00:18:49

That's a good thing. But a better thing is that you strive to be at the top of your profession. So that you can produce let the goal be

00:18:50--> 00:19:00

a college of medicine, which is the Islamic College of Medicine. What does not exist in Pakistan today.

00:19:01--> 00:19:05

There is no Islamic College of Medicine.

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

Or is there one that I don't know about? Tell me

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

there is no Islamic College of Medicine.

00:19:16--> 00:19:25

In that Islamic College of Medicine, medicine would be taught with Islamic ethics.

00:19:28--> 00:19:43

So that the generation who would be produced by that college would be one who can change the world, change Pakistan and change the world at least in that field.

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

So this is what I invite you

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

to set for yourselves

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

beyond the box

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

something which is a worthwhile achieve.

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

meant that you leave this world, and you leave behind you a legacy, which people will look back 100 years from now and say, you know,

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

in 2015

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

This idea was born

00:20:18--> 00:20:37

and the college was produced. And believe me, if you are produced the Islamic College of Medicine in Pakistan, you will find people coming from all over the Muslim world who want to go into medicine.

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

But there are all these other issues that are there.

00:20:43--> 00:20:49

He will become, as I say, the mecca for Islamic medicine,

00:20:51--> 00:20:55

changers of the world to come.

00:20:57--> 00:20:58

So

00:21:00--> 00:21:04

as I said, in the beginning, nothing is too great for Allah.

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

I hope

00:21:09--> 00:21:15

that this thought you would give time to commitment to

00:21:17--> 00:21:21

and pray that Allah would make it manifest.

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

Pakistan can do it.

00:21:29--> 00:21:32

Saudi Arabia has the means.

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

But

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

without the will.

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

The means

00:21:42--> 00:21:44

don't produce anything

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

in your life, you have the will

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

allow will provide the means.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55

So

00:21:56--> 00:21:59

that is the brief reminder

00:22:00--> 00:22:08

that I wanted to share with you today. I'll give you a chance to ask some questions related to it.

00:22:11--> 00:22:15

Just to help the idea, grow further.

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

Sharla.

00:22:19--> 00:22:28

Okay. Your your question or comment is that medicine as it is today

00:22:29--> 00:22:33

is as it would be in an Islamic

00:22:35--> 00:22:39

institution. If we had the Islamic College of Medicine,

00:22:40--> 00:22:47

the same thing you are learning, and the way it is being taught would be the same. What's the difference?

00:22:50--> 00:22:51

everybody agree with that?

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

So in other words, there's no need firm Islamic College of Medicine.

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

Well, let me say this,

00:23:05--> 00:23:08

that the essence of Islamic teachings,

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

our moral

00:23:13--> 00:23:24

Prophet Muhammad wa sallam had said, in them, our boys to the 10, minimum makara mala clock, I was only sent to perfect for you the highest of moral character traits.

00:23:27--> 00:23:38

So what it is that Islam has to offer the world, we don't have the technology, but we have the morality, if we know it, and we teach it.

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

So if right now,

00:23:44--> 00:23:59

the College of Medicine has produced you all, who cannot raise your hands and say you never cheated, that we say the college has failed islamically that is a major failure.

00:24:01--> 00:24:16

Major. It's not something small. I mean, because if you think about Okay, what you have to study all the textbooks and you know, anatomy and all this other immune systems and all this stuff that you have to study. You think that's so small, no, that is huge.

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

That is huge.

00:24:21--> 00:24:34

So just setting up the college in such a way that the Islamic ethics Islamic moral principles are introduced.

00:24:36--> 00:24:45

So that the students graduate and they all can raise their hands and say we have never cheated. I will say that is great success.

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

Because such medical professionals are going to have a solid positive impact on the society because now when you call on those on those

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

professionals who have come out of that college with that kind of morals you say, listen, we have a segment here in Islamabad of people who are so poor, they cannot access medicine. We need volunteers

00:25:17--> 00:25:21

to, to give community service to the community

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

to help our brothers and sisters.

00:25:26--> 00:25:27

They'll be right up there.

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

Right now

00:25:30--> 00:25:45

concerned is money. You know, if I go and I take my time and go and do this love, it's time I don't get money. Time is money, right? It's not what they say, time is money. You know, hey, I'm giving all this time I'm not getting any money back from it. What is the motivation?

00:25:49--> 00:26:00

This is the point. It's huge. And I'm not going into even the, you know, the fine details, of course, arguments about evolution, all this other area.

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

I'm just dealing with

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

ethical, Islamic

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

moral medicine.

00:26:11--> 00:26:24

That alone makes a big change. How many cases in America, you have every year of doctors leading professionals etc. arrested

00:26:26--> 00:26:28

for what? sexual abuse.

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

Use of women.

00:26:34--> 00:26:58

Even though they made this moral code, that the Hippocratic oath and all this other kind of stuff, they did it but they still Why? Because morals God, not there. So people, when they find themselves in positions of abuse of they think they can get away with it, they'll do it. Because there's no moral fiber there. So that's what we're talking about.

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

Bringing that moral fiber back.

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

So that every class which is taught, whether it is anatomy, or

00:27:10--> 00:27:12

endocrine systems, or whatever you're teaching,

00:27:14--> 00:27:16

a moral message is included.

00:27:18--> 00:27:25

The professor who is teaching will work in the moral message in that field.

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

As well as

00:27:30--> 00:27:38

educate you, to the great scholars, medical scholars of Islam, who contributed to that field.

00:27:40--> 00:27:47

Mostly, you know, have you mentioned Great Western medical professionals, scholars,

00:27:48--> 00:27:52

inventors, etc. You know them by name.

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

That's what they're all in your books.

00:27:55--> 00:28:01

But there are hundreds of other great scholars who are Muslims, you have no idea about

00:28:03--> 00:28:10

who contributed to, to medicine in ways that you are completely ignorant of.

00:28:11--> 00:28:22

So this should be brought into the class room, so that you have that connection, Islam medicine, there is a connection. It's not a separate thing.

00:28:25--> 00:28:51

Bringing in that moral medicine principle, and then even in terms of areas of specialization, one of them medical principles that would be in the Islamic Medical College, is that any young man who says that he wants to become a specialist. He wants to specialize in gynecology. We sell him No.

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

No.

00:28:59--> 00:29:07

Somebody might say, Well, why not? You know, medical doctors, you deal with everything. Why can't you have male medical gynecologist?

00:29:10--> 00:29:17

Do I have to explain the details of this? I think we're clear on this, right? This one's very obvious.

00:29:19--> 00:29:32

Right? Just as if a woman wanted to specialize in prostate cancer, I would tell her No, no, no, no. Leave that one. Put them into that one.

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

Okay.

00:29:36--> 00:29:36

So

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

did anybody ever tell you that? No.

00:29:42--> 00:29:49

The doors wide open, you know, knowledge, get a tower, no problem. Learning be whatever you want to be.

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

If the money is in prostate cancer,

00:29:54--> 00:29:54

go for it.

00:29:55--> 00:29:56

No.

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

So

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

We, in the medical Islamic Medical College will have another view.

00:30:08--> 00:30:16

So when you think to graduate and set up, clinics, etc, you know, you need a team, male and female,

00:30:18--> 00:30:39

female to deal with the female things, male to deal with the man things, you know, that we don't just take one doctor says he does everything okay? He has to learn in case of emergencies, everybody will learn both sides in case of emergencies, but as a practice, you know, you focus on the males, and you focus on the females.

00:30:41--> 00:30:57

So, this is all a part of Islamic Medical College. So, people come through the college with that way of thinking that approach, then coming out into society, they will make a change.

00:30:59--> 00:31:00

So, it is not the same.

00:31:01--> 00:31:14

There will be common factors which are the same, you know, the principles of embryo embryonic development, and, you know, these things are there's nothing Islamic version.

00:31:16--> 00:31:22

You know, that's the facts, the facts are the facts, but how we use those facts,

00:31:24--> 00:31:29

how we approach the field of medicine

00:31:31--> 00:31:42

will determine ultimately, whether as professionals, we will be able to make a difference? Or will we just be like the batches before?

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

Question from the women's side please, three questions.

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

The first question

00:31:56--> 00:32:04

going to the west, non Muslim country, to gain knowledge, can we do that? Yes.

00:32:07--> 00:32:09

Good going as a female,

00:32:10--> 00:32:23

to these countries to gain knowledge can we do that? Yes, if certain things are in place, to protect the female to ensure that she is safe

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

coeducation.

00:32:32--> 00:32:35

If in the masjid,

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

we have coeducation

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

in the time of Prophet masala

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

in the masjid, the men sat in the front. And the woman sat in the back.

00:32:53--> 00:32:53

And

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

they were taught

00:32:58--> 00:33:01

whether in the football or general.

00:33:03--> 00:33:03

So,

00:33:05--> 00:33:12

technically speaking, this is not an Islamic, if there is a separation,

00:33:13--> 00:33:15

then it is possible.

00:33:16--> 00:33:24

But the issue is now where it becomes a free for all, where everybody sits anyhow, anywhere, whatever, then

00:33:25--> 00:33:27

it is not productive.

00:33:29--> 00:33:30

And it is not Islamic.

00:33:32--> 00:33:45

That's the point. So the issue of CO education, we have to be careful, because sometimes we recognize islamically coeducation is harmful, but it's when it's done in a harmful way.

00:33:47--> 00:33:56

But coeducation just as a principle that men and women are taught at the same time by the same instructor. This is part of Islam. It's not

00:33:57--> 00:34:02

otherwise, the wives of the Prophet SAW Selim taught males and females.

00:34:04--> 00:34:06

The Deen, Hadith, etc.

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

by Jacques de la was fourth most prolific narrator of Hadees.

00:34:13--> 00:34:17

huge portion of the D in the shediac she taught.

00:34:19--> 00:34:25

So, we try to find that balance.

00:34:27--> 00:34:34

That's how our way is the balanced way. Okay. Delica Jana Kuhn. omoton was Otto.

00:34:35--> 00:34:41

And that way Allah made us the balanced nation, not going to one extreme,

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

nor going to another extreme.

00:34:46--> 00:34:46

Okay.

00:34:48--> 00:34:50

male side Go ahead.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

Okay, question. Should the Islamic Medical College be produced by evolution?

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

revolution

00:35:02--> 00:35:12

whatever way Brother, you know, if you get there, inshallah, Hallo revolution or halaal evolution,

00:35:13--> 00:35:14

it's all good.

00:35:16--> 00:35:34

We're not going to set the limits of you know what it's going to take right now we need to commit, make it a goal and work towards it. The circumstances that we will be faced as we strive to do it will determine whether it needs a revolution or evolution.

00:35:36--> 00:35:38

No doubt it will evolve.

00:35:39--> 00:35:42

But at certain points, you may have to revolt

00:35:43--> 00:35:44

within

00:35:45--> 00:35:50

the confines of Islamic parameters

00:35:53--> 00:35:54

from this woman side,

00:35:59--> 00:35:59

the white

00:36:02--> 00:36:02

surface on

00:36:07--> 00:36:08

the salaf

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

concerning

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

me immigration seeking

00:36:17--> 00:36:19

foreign nationalities

00:36:21--> 00:36:24

fundamentally, it is permissible.

00:36:25--> 00:36:29

Fundamentally, it is permissible.

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

However,

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

the issue of deception

00:36:36--> 00:36:37

is

00:36:39--> 00:37:05

what raises questions about the process, but the general concept of living in another country, you know, becoming a citizen of that other country is, as a basic principle halaal. But we have to ask ourselves, you know, what is our intention? Now, if you are from a segment of society or a country where you're fleeing,

00:37:06--> 00:37:22

you're fleeing and you lose nationality, you have to find some other place to live. And that is what has become available, then we will say that that person is excused. This is necessity.

00:37:23--> 00:37:26

But where it is just a question of prestidge

00:37:28--> 00:37:34

you carrying an American passport, doors open, that don't open otherwise.

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

Or it's just prestigious,

00:37:39--> 00:37:42

then we'll say that's not

00:37:43--> 00:37:46

safe sufficient to justify doing that.

00:37:48--> 00:37:57

It's possible to live there, gain the knowledge, do the dour, all of these other things without necessarily becoming a citizen.

00:37:59--> 00:38:04

Since you know that it involves this element,

00:38:05--> 00:38:07

which is against Islamic teachings.

00:38:09--> 00:38:10

So

00:38:11--> 00:38:15

you stay within the bounds which have been set.

00:38:17--> 00:38:21

This is the reminder that it's time for namaaz salon.

00:38:24--> 00:38:27

Take the last question then from the women side. Go ahead.

00:38:28--> 00:38:40

Oh, little person. What is your question? Oh, you're just straight. Oh, that's you, you you. You just put your hand up. But I guess you were shooing away flies or

00:38:42--> 00:38:49

anybody else. From the woman's side. No. Last question from the men. Go ahead.

00:38:50--> 00:38:57

Okay. I don't know. I think you weren't here when we raise the hands about who cheated?

00:38:59--> 00:38:59

Hmm.

00:39:01--> 00:39:05

No, you didn't raise your hand. But you were here when we had this raising of hands right?

00:39:09--> 00:39:14

No, no. No brothers question is, are his comment is that

00:39:16--> 00:39:36

the doctors should be the most perfect Muslims because they have seen the wonders of a law in the human body as they study it, etc, etc. So in that case, they should be the best of Muslims. So why do we even need an Islamic medical college?

00:39:38--> 00:39:50

But the reason why is we said is that simply knowing about the body does not make you the best of Muslims. What makes you the best of Muslims is knowing a law

00:39:52--> 00:39:54

it's knowing a law

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

and understanding the message which are law

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

has sent through Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and applying that message in your life. This is what makes you the best of Muslims. You know who realize,

00:40:13--> 00:40:30

you understand the deen of Allah, and you follow the way of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam we know that's fact why? Because those are the three questions that Allah has the angels asked you in the grave, who is your Lord? What was your religion? Who was your messenger?

00:40:32--> 00:41:10

So obviously, that's related to this life. That is the best Muslim. Whether you are a doctor, lawyer, engineer, fireman, that's what makes you the best of Muslims. So the Medical College was necessary, as we said, because the current state of medical training and teaching is based on non Muslim systems, which is, for the most part, without ethics. Without morality, they've removed morality from

00:41:11--> 00:41:12

education.

00:41:14--> 00:41:18

This is secularism This is the secular societies product.
