00:00:06--> 00:00:07

Along the

00:00:08--> 00:00:09

jungle,

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

Ashley, is what revenue amount?

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

Unfortunately,

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

his family's not well delayed getting here.

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

I was informed about

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

everything you were

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

needed the apps and so on.

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

So, to be very honest, I have not very prepared

00:00:40--> 00:00:45

very much to add to the topic, except that

00:00:46--> 00:00:55

there are two issues which I had wanted to deal with in the presentation which we gave on deviation lines,

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

which are directly related to this topic, and above which I will

00:01:09--> 00:01:09

I

00:01:10--> 00:01:15

call the communistic approach to Islamic movement.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

communistic why, because

00:01:20--> 00:01:20

I've learned

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

after I lost Christianity, I became a communist

00:01:26--> 00:01:33

and worked to the Communist Party in America and Canada for almost four years.

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

And the methodology,

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

which they taught,

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

and which they apply,

00:01:45--> 00:01:51

in the course of their revolutionary movements in Russia and China,

00:01:52--> 00:01:52

Cuba,

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

high power after becoming a Muslim,

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

that these methods, especially in more recent times,

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

have also been adopted

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

by

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

some of the modern exotic movement

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

seeking to

00:02:16--> 00:02:21

effectively establish Islam in their country

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

utilizing the methods

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

and, in fact,

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

these methods

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

to the establishment of Islam,

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

which go against the way of the

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

euro

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

which

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

shows us

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

that the building of the foundation

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

is essential for the establishment of the foundation.

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

The foundation with regard to

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

our feeder

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

correct beliefs

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

were given 30 years

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

before Allah gave permission

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

to

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

set about the actual construction of

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

a couple of

00:03:40--> 00:03:50

super trusses and to be engaged in often conflicts with those forces that sought to destroy.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

That Foundation was 13 years

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

ago, which came after was only

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

eight years.

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

If we look at the methodology used

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

by some groups,

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

which I call the United Front methodology, where

00:04:26--> 00:04:30

it is an issue of unity for the sake of unity.

00:04:31--> 00:04:38

We are strong when we're all together, and we are weak when we are separated, divide and conquer

00:04:44--> 00:04:47

which makes sense in certain contexts.

00:04:48--> 00:04:48

However,

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

when we're talking about establishing

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

Islam

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

we can unite

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

Everybody,

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

regardless on what may consider Islam, so,

00:05:10--> 00:05:14

there has to be a clear cut program

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

of really basic things.

00:05:20--> 00:05:30

The basic concepts which are shared by Muslims across the world, those foundational concepts,

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

we can help people who disagree on these.

00:05:36--> 00:05:45

We cannot unite, for example, a people who declare the map of the harbor to be apart.

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

We cannot unite with people

00:05:52--> 00:05:58

who believe that we should only pray to Allah to intermediary

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

in approach to Islam,

00:06:08--> 00:06:12

we can only united with those who are very clear on who Allah is.

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

Man's relationship with Allah

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

is

00:06:26--> 00:06:31

that each and every person has to be 100%.

00:06:33--> 00:06:40

Or in agreement about all of the finer points around the foundation.

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

That is, we have an inquisition board. Half the people have already accepted our basic

00:06:49--> 00:06:55

questions, question about certain finer points. You know, for example, where is a lot?

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

You know, somebody says a lie is everywhere.

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

And are they Well, not a lot is above

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

the final, somebody who doesn't live everywhere, doesn't mean

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

you did everything else. But you are that alive everywhere.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

This doesn't mean that

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

you should be doing it by yourself.

00:07:22--> 00:07:30

Because when you're going to understand what does it mean, when it says allies everywhere, you find that the vast majority of people

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

they mean that a lot is everything.

00:07:35--> 00:08:04

That is power is everywhere, but not that a lot. It is everything and everywhere. I mean, it's a different person, first of all of that, like in the hobby, you know that everything is along the lines everything okay that type of person, okay, we have to draw a line here, but is the person and his concept or her concept applies everywhere, meaning that a lot of power and control is,

00:08:06--> 00:08:14

is within and without everything, nothing Escape is knowledge is power and control seems to happen.

00:08:15--> 00:08:23

So we should be very clear eyed what points that division has to take place. But if

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

we unite, just because we say we're Muslims,

00:08:29--> 00:08:35

then we end up with a situation like we found in a world

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

where she is

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

Sophie's

00:08:44--> 00:08:53

a harsh, harsh, you know, Warlord, you know, all kinds of individuals were all thrown together to deal with a common enemy.

00:08:55--> 00:08:58

How however, right the combination was dealt with,

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

then made sure that upon each other.

00:09:05--> 00:09:08

And that's what's been going on trying to dig in and

00:09:09--> 00:09:13

struggle Muslims, killing other Muslims

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

for an extended period of time with no hope or solution in the immediate future.

00:09:24--> 00:09:27

Because the basic concepts

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

were unclear.

00:09:31--> 00:09:37

And they United for the sake of friends, that is immunity.

00:09:39--> 00:09:44

That approach in contradiction to the prophetic approach

00:09:45--> 00:09:52

did not compromise with the pagans of Mecca, with any segments amongst the Vegas of Mecca.

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

theology

00:10:02--> 00:10:02

was

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

a must. For all those who sought to follow the problem,

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

he made no compromise.

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

The second deviation that

00:10:19--> 00:10:26

I have observed the banquet under the communistic approach is the coup d'etat approach to

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

Islamic Revolution or climate change.

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

That is establishment of Islamic government,

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

by force upon

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

without

00:10:44--> 00:10:48

laying again, the proper foundation amongst the masses of the people.

00:10:54--> 00:11:00

This approach is exemplified today by the Jihad movements in Egypt. And those

00:11:03--> 00:11:06

are the groups that have run off from the si es and Algeria,

00:11:07--> 00:11:15

and also the Islamic group in Trinidad that attempted to take power there,

00:11:17--> 00:11:20

years back, all of them carry the same

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

concept.

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

Now,

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

the kilo

00:11:30--> 00:11:36

earlier, had begun this program of terrorism,

00:11:37--> 00:11:41

which became identified as Islamic terrorism.

00:11:43--> 00:11:46

We're bombs are put on airplanes and healing these

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

airline encounters in buses,

00:11:51--> 00:11:51

boats,

00:11:53--> 00:11:57

this approach to get the attention of the world

00:11:59--> 00:12:07

to draw the world's attention, people, innocent people who are not involved in the summer or whatever were massacres.

00:12:10--> 00:12:16

Now, what we find in this coup d'etat approach in the movement within the PLO,

00:12:18--> 00:12:25

is more outlets in the sense that it's yellow from its inception was not really Islamic

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

men, they're a hodgepodge example in and of themselves,

00:12:31--> 00:12:37

United Front, which goes beyond even malaria, including communists and Christians and

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

real harsh flash.

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

So that left is a much more often utilized entity.

00:12:48--> 00:12:48

Now,

00:12:50--> 00:12:55

more reasons, those that have sprung up like jihad in Egypt, that Empire

00:12:58--> 00:13:02

is one of creating economic

00:13:04--> 00:13:33

economists in creating revolution, they saw in order to politicize the the masses of the people, the lumpen proletariat, who are ignorant, you know, they really weren't aware of the dynamics of what was going on in the country, the capitalistic systems and how they're being exploited, etc. The way for them to be realized was to sabotage the country's economic and

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

create a state a police say, you know, where the

00:13:39--> 00:13:52

country moves on the masses of the people very harshly. And this will cause them to turn away from the government look at the government of the entity and then be open to be to receive the teachings of the communists.

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

Now, what we find is that

00:13:58--> 00:14:03

none of these movies are using the same methodology to try to promote islamic

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

jihad.

00:14:08--> 00:14:15

They try to bring predominate of Egypt, Egypt with me economically, by attacking what is the key

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

figure in economics tourism. So we had a half the tourists

00:14:22--> 00:14:34

bombed in a machine gun, a button, you know, massacre, the tourists drive the shorts away, so they will come in the country and help to bring the country to its knees. And when

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

he

00:14:37--> 00:14:42

also resigned, for example, in Algeria, the foreign workers or

00:14:43--> 00:14:57

people were from Philippines, from France, or wherever, for he in the country and their governmental projects. These people are shut down, simply because they're fine. And then the fund is all fine and the soldiers get out of the country. Otherwise

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

why are they talking about

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

So that the economic situation the country would worsen in both cases, in which case,

00:15:07--> 00:15:11

he would lose confidence in the government, and then turn to

00:15:13--> 00:15:17

Islamic quote unquote, movements for silence.

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

However,

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

this approach is not in keeping with the prospective model,

00:15:28--> 00:15:42

it is a shortcut, and attempt to, to get to evolution without taking the necessary steps for planning, change, instead of educating the masses of people

00:15:44--> 00:15:50

in a circumstance where one has relative freedoms, who come to educate, and

00:15:51--> 00:16:13

they create a state of recession, which then forces people to be on the ground, very little Islamic education to now take place. Common people simply because they have beards or whatever their attack, some of the common people under attack that causes them to raise question marks on the government. However,

00:16:15--> 00:16:23

many of the common people, many more of the common people, when they see a policeman shot, this policeman is one that

00:16:24--> 00:16:46

is a good guy, he has a wife and so many children, he got involved in any kind of, you know, oppressive actions towards them and proxies defending their and protecting them from criminal activities in their area, whatever. And then somebody arrives by and loads them away, simply because he has a uniform on the policeman,

00:16:47--> 00:16:56

the maximum the people in the village cannot be drawn towards that she has not be drawn towards a struggle, girl be turned away from that struggle, because they can only see the hero.

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

And surely,

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

because

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

these rules

00:17:04--> 00:17:10

are quite clearly laid out in Islamic Sharia

00:17:14--> 00:17:24

which, for those involved in Spanish struggle to take the lives of innocent women, children and old people.

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

So,

00:17:30--> 00:17:43

they have neglected the responsibility of educating the masses of people and infiltrating the various organs of government

00:17:44--> 00:17:51

with the chronically conscious individual, so that when the time comes to change, that leadership,

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

the leadership cannot call upon the military

00:17:58--> 00:18:03

to attack the masses of people, because they will not find that support.

00:18:04--> 00:18:11

And in this way, shame takes place without a right to bloodshed.

00:18:14--> 00:18:15

So,

00:18:16--> 00:18:21

these two approaches are the two that I wanted to just mention to you briefly.

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

As a warning for those who consider them,

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

we should learn from those sides that

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

recognize the failure

00:18:36--> 00:18:43

and at the same time know that it is fundamentally wrong, because it is not in keeping with the methodology of profit.

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

And at the same time,

00:18:51--> 00:18:56

know that there are no shortcuts to change.

00:18:58--> 00:19:18

There are no shortcuts to climate change. The ways with climate change is in accordance with the methodology the proper Foundation has to be made. The people have to be educated, when enough people are Muslims in in in Medina that

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

there is no problem

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

because he had a sound base amongst

00:19:28--> 00:19:32

the Jews, even though the shoes are the ones who founded Medina,

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

Medina and the other

00:19:38--> 00:19:46

side that that joined and measures out in 100 lonely remotely havens and they would have accepted the leadership of the Jews

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

among them, then the Jews had

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

no more support problems that could be installed as the leaders and everybody else had to submit. There was no physical suffering.

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

But it didn't mean that before the anti Islamic person died out.

00:20:06--> 00:20:13

It was considered a subtle but it would not be an open struggle would not be, you know, massive bloodshed taking place in the community.

00:20:14--> 00:20:17

So, we need to learn from this era.

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

Understand that this era,

00:20:23--> 00:20:38

maybe history, historical facts that we learn and we recite to our children as a storage, no, you know, facts on our culture. Know that history that

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

way.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

The only way
