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

What's so often This allows

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

operators to do a lot of these investments, the last messenger of Allaah

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

this evenings topic

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

is really the Muslim world.

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

We see in the news today,

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

this past

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

past months,

00:00:32--> 00:00:44

a variety of different revolts taking place in what is known as the Allied world, the ad portion of the Muslim world.

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

And there is a generalization

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

concerning the term model,

00:00:53--> 00:00:58

which stands for agency to have a lot of sand earlier.

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

And as soon as like Somalia,

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

etc,

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

etc,

00:01:13--> 00:01:21

as you say, is important for us to understand the forces that are played

00:01:23--> 00:01:23

a force

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

what the Media presents

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

is oftentimes a mixture of factors addiction

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

is an

00:01:37--> 00:01:45

attempt to promote the lost native images of the Muslim world.

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

We are in an era

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

of Islamophobia.

00:01:56--> 00:02:03

where suddenly is done in the UK and the 90s running a horse

00:02:05--> 00:02:23

substantiation, the feelings or the position of the parents and community that Islamophobia was in fact, in operation there UK and in many parts of Europe and elsewhere.

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

Islamophobia

00:02:27--> 00:02:31

a fear of Islam

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

and irrational fear

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

one which really doesn't have

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

a factual or

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

political

00:02:47--> 00:02:55

base. But why don't we just did created either by the media

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

center in newspapers

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

creating viewership

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

or by political figures in different countries in order to divert the nastiness in those countries from the real issues facing political issues, economic issues etc.

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

to

00:03:25--> 00:03:33

help the masses focus on an element in the society to be in fact the

00:03:34--> 00:03:40

point at which people may blame assigning blame to visit

00:03:43--> 00:03:48

as being the source of their woes, their problems.

00:03:50--> 00:03:56

We can see that in recent times, with the way over Batman on the job

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

across Europe, beginning of France

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

to Germany, Belgium, Dr.

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

Nick law,

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

the coloring of the face

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

something which in the

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

Muslim world,

00:04:21--> 00:04:26

Muslim women a very small fraction of the Muslim woman wore and

00:04:29--> 00:04:35

by all the political convenience, it became a point of

00:04:38--> 00:04:46

why we hear coming from the political figures of Europe and elsewhere. Is that a once

00:04:48--> 00:04:52

in these countries as a minority

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

during the years,

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

it

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

was rare. It is to assimilate

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

So that also

00:05:02--> 00:05:28

loses his or her identity, that they become indistinguishable from the common citizens of a society. Their revision is something secondary, which there are nine. But what is primary is that the citizens of the country in such a way as to be indistinguishable from other citizens who are,

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

however,

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

the to

00:05:35--> 00:05:38

require persons to distinguish themselves

00:05:41--> 00:05:44

to be Muslim in this verse,

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

anything else

00:05:50--> 00:06:00

it doesn't mean that they shouldn't be around the members of society, but they are not productive members of society.

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

This

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

we can say, Islamic

00:06:09--> 00:06:15

view is something which is not new result of

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

reasonable events.

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

This is an ancient

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

founded

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

and founded in

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

100.

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

When

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

my own father,

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

whoever he takes the waves of people, it was that

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

he was

00:06:53--> 00:07:04

on the sword and 70 of the Muslims to distinguish themselves in whatever circumstance whatever society they find themselves, when

00:07:06--> 00:07:09

they have distinctive ways of dress,

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

character

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

principles,

00:07:14--> 00:07:22

which they stand by, regardless of changes that take place in

00:07:23--> 00:07:29

elements or parts of society, or even on a world scale.

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

Where, for example,

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

the reason the change is taking place in the West

00:07:41--> 00:07:46

with regards to homosexuality, for example,

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

were in the 70s.

00:07:51--> 00:07:59

After being considered from the perspective of psychologists

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

to mediate illness and mental illness, and which was treated with a variety of

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

treatment

00:08:13--> 00:08:13

treatments

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

in the 70s.

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

And

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

the area

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

of

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

homosexuality

00:08:29--> 00:08:34

was replaced by another known as homophobia,

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

that is a dislike

00:08:39--> 00:08:51

of homosexuality. The one who disliked it openly rejected it considered to be improper or

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

something

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

considered to be invalid.

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

He or she just seems

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

to be reprogrammed to accept this, what came to be known as an alternative lifestyle,

00:09:11--> 00:09:13

this movement

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

for homosexual movements spread throughout the country that the west

00:09:21--> 00:09:36

to the point where not only were homosexuals to be accepted, but their way of life has to be considered commanded.

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

And it also hosts

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

as I say,

00:09:46--> 00:09:46

the

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

church is dangerous feature for example, which had based on teaching of the Old Testament, they held that this is something sinful lifestyle is

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

Wrong,

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

punishable by death in the Old Testament,

00:10:07--> 00:10:13

the father said the church changed in many cases change their position.

00:10:15--> 00:10:21

And they moved along with the changes in four sided

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

by the society.

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

So, we ended up I was dealing in homosexual ministers

00:10:31--> 00:10:31

as of

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

now,

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

Catholicism basically has drawn

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

from a local perspective

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

and

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

Islam

00:10:52--> 00:10:52

has

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

power

00:10:57--> 00:11:02

in this regard, the stood firm, those countries which

00:11:04--> 00:11:12

may Sharia law, Islamic law law other countries like Saudi Arabia

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

and others

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

may the official

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

basis of the Constitution is

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

inscribed in their laws that is considered to be

00:11:31--> 00:11:36

punishable by death as adultery is

00:11:38--> 00:11:42

as murder is, it is.

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

So, this is now

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

gone.

00:11:50--> 00:12:01

A an issue over wish, for example, myself recently visited Germany in

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

March of this year.

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

And while I was there, I gave a lecture and Humber

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

lecture was legally permitted,

00:12:15--> 00:12:28

which was on Islamophobia. The problems that Muslims face in terms of dislike of Islam, which is spread across Europe, how would you deal with this

00:12:29--> 00:12:29

at the end of

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

17, Germany.

00:12:37--> 00:12:41

However, on my way back to the hotel,

00:12:42--> 00:12:45

I was surrounded by German Swati

00:12:46--> 00:13:02

taken into headquarters, and was read a document from the mayor Amber, which stated that I will be buying from Germany for life.

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

Why?

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

Because according to the documents, I have located the death of homosexuals.

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

While I was giving lectures on

00:13:25--> 00:13:33

various on YouTube, a action by you, in which you say this

00:13:34--> 00:13:47

lecture was in defense of Islamic law, I was explaining what the law was and the variety of different instances and explaining the logic and the rational rationale behind it.

00:13:48--> 00:14:04

That's all I was doing. I was calling inciting people to sexual violence very strongly against people taking the law into their own hands. However, as it will say to me, and in the document that was

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

an important foreign society there and I represented a threat to their existence. Therefore, I wouldn't be banned forever.

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

This is the overreaction taking place

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

for her to hold the beliefs of Islam as now the

00:14:28--> 00:14:28

threat

00:14:31--> 00:14:35

is the extension of Islamophobia.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

Islamophobia

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

is also

00:14:42--> 00:14:52

a product of an overall subtler which exists on a world scale between the Chevy

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

and what is your today as

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

democracy Secretary

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

In particular secondaries as being a medieval political system, in which the

00:15:09--> 00:15:16

role of religion is removed from their spheres of education,

00:15:17--> 00:15:26

economics, political expression, etc, religion is taken out of that sphere altogether.

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

Whereas,

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

Islam

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

based on the principle of Sharia,

00:15:36--> 00:15:45

whole religion should influence all aspects of life, because the basic reason

00:15:46--> 00:15:56

we do not have a tradition of separating what is called church from state, church and state law.

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

So, from a design perspective,

00:16:02--> 00:16:11

Islam should govern education, economics, politics, all those aspects in the country, where else

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

are ruling

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

warehouses are

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

worse, it is not

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

to implement the Sharia.

00:16:26--> 00:16:37

However, again, a fear develops, I imagine example where a number of states have banned

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

most of the politicians who have been involved in this

00:16:48--> 00:16:48

design,

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

synonymous with terrorism.

00:16:53--> 00:16:56

Everything is not related to gender.

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

But it

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

is for you to ban

00:17:03--> 00:17:06

it means you're banning Muslims from dying.

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

Minister is raised five times a day

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

he is implementing

00:17:16--> 00:17:21

when he or a boss, the month of Ramadan, they're going to say

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

when they have

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

their electricity

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

governs all of one's life

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

to the degree

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

to privacy.

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

So, let's move

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

on,

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

wash it out.

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

So this is really

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

what is at the bottom of much of the turmoil of the sea in the world today especially

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

where were

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

the values of democracy

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

dominating most of the world's

00:18:13--> 00:18:22

communist system, which, at one time was in opposition to the capitalist system is also second bankruptcy

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

at

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

the next largest body

00:18:29--> 00:18:44

of people their secondary democracy as a way of ruling the country and for hosting the city in multicultural societies like India, democracy

00:18:46--> 00:18:53

it's not about that at that respect. However, the imposition of second democracy

00:18:54--> 00:18:57

doesn't work represents something else,

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

because it comes into direct conflict with the Sharia.

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

Most companies today have been

00:19:10--> 00:19:22

adopted some form of secondary democracy and that is the norm in most countries. However,

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

the consequence

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

remains preserved

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

among the Muslim scholars

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

in the Muslim scholarship

00:19:36--> 00:19:40

they are unanimous in all day that she

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

remains a father

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

for Muslim life and their husbands are able to implement

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

that they are lying to themselves.

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

This is based on the same as in

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Davos

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

Jonathan's rule belongs to a law

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

firm in a salon musubi. Dahlia.

00:20:16--> 00:20:32

Say, indeed, my prayers, my sacrifices, my living my dying, are for a law, the Lord of all worlds, that most of them dedicate his or her life

00:20:34--> 00:20:39

to doing what is pleasing to God, as defined.

00:20:45--> 00:20:50

So we have two forces at play, on one hand.

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

And on the other hand, we also have

00:20:55--> 00:21:13

a in many Muslim countries, dictatorships, where the right people are abused, and the population suffering under the crush of this evil rule.

00:21:16--> 00:21:26

The people eventually exploded into the sheer amount of things on fire, and from their spread on Egypt.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

Tunisia and Egypt in

00:21:30--> 00:21:35

Egypt, stepped down to Libya, Syria,

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

South Yemen,

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

etc.

00:21:41--> 00:21:51

that response by the people was really a nice way, a response to oppression

00:21:52--> 00:22:01

of the masses of people oppression, which does not actually have any direct

00:22:02--> 00:22:06

connection with forces of homes.

00:22:07--> 00:22:14

But similarly, autocratic rules, where leaders abuse their

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

countrymen and women taking the wealth

00:22:20--> 00:22:23

on territory, giving the wild off to

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

less than hours,

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

in a way in which society can suffer.

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

So remove

00:22:34--> 00:22:40

this was really an attempt by people to find some form of redress some form of

00:22:41--> 00:22:47

normal normalcy in their lives. They were living under very

00:22:49--> 00:23:07

terrible circumstances. And many of these countries, if a person were seen to oppose or to speak, in a way, which was against the government, this paperwork it says here, they couldn't be following the families and never hear from

00:23:09--> 00:23:09

them again.

00:23:11--> 00:23:36

This is not unusual for this type of situation, after years of dictatorship, this country is going have exploded. But that is not specifically an Islamic story. It is just a reaction to what exists or what existed in their countries

00:23:37--> 00:23:45

is one of those the same time though it has removed some of the barriers and

00:23:46--> 00:23:49

we can say, political

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

oppression

00:23:52--> 00:23:59

on Muslim parties were mostly warehouses wanted to be a part and parcel of the

00:24:01--> 00:24:07

rule of the various countries, the well known Islamic parties were surprised

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

people were murdered etc. So with

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

the batteries firing

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

in most places, so also

00:24:25--> 00:24:35

figures well known figures politicians have now come out in greater force, their voices are being heard, etc.

00:24:38--> 00:24:39

However,

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

in general, these results

00:24:45--> 00:24:54

are not guided by principles. So many of the hosts that people might have

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

we are looking at Muslims over there. My wishes

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

them

00:25:02--> 00:25:07

will last or probably won't be realized.

00:25:08--> 00:25:15

Because other other forces at play, that don't want to see this turn into an Islamic

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

change in the society,

00:25:20--> 00:25:24

this Western civilization,

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

energy towards

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

God.

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

And, in fact,

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

becomes one

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

says, the desire to implement

00:25:43--> 00:26:01

the idea of Western civilization secular democracy on the rest of the world. Some of the Huntington spoke about this in his class and civilization. No, I don't necessarily agree with everything you said in the book, he didn't identify

00:26:02--> 00:26:03

a point of

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

wanting to fight

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

once a military boss.

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

This is not for the

00:26:16--> 00:26:20

teachers, it doesn't encourage it. However, it also saundra

00:26:23--> 00:26:24

was able.

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

However,

00:26:29--> 00:26:36

most of the heads in the past, where they dominated large segments of the world,

00:26:37--> 00:26:45

they force their belief system on the population that they will

00:26:46--> 00:26:51

save for some 700 years, the majority of standards

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

for the most

00:26:56--> 00:26:59

muscles were rolled over 1000 years,

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

the majority of Indians remain

00:27:04--> 00:27:10

the belief system of Islam was not forced upon the people of the country,

00:27:11--> 00:27:21

Islamic way to automatically enter into direct conflict with other civilizations or other belief systems.

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

Not necessarily.

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

For some time, it was something more.

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

So

00:27:32--> 00:27:36

the assignment was more linear and If,

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

however, what

00:27:40--> 00:27:46

today's doesn't want us to get again, Islam attacks,

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

not Islam, which is practiced

00:27:51--> 00:27:51

properly.

00:27:53--> 00:28:00

While a right you see, and what is commonly referred to as moderate Islam or liberalism.

00:28:01--> 00:28:08

Class, what we call nominal, this guy wears the Muslim only name.

00:28:09--> 00:28:16

But he or she doesn't really practice for a year to the principles of Islam. At first,

00:28:18--> 00:28:19

piety

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

are some examples.

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

This is

00:28:32--> 00:28:36

this is what Muslims are facing today

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

that are starting

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

to speak out about this

00:28:44--> 00:28:51

means that you're not going to be able, as an extreme calling to do.

00:28:54--> 00:28:55

So

00:28:57--> 00:29:01

a few months ago, also, in the UK,

00:29:02--> 00:29:05

I was also informed that I was back in the UK as

00:29:09--> 00:29:17

well, because I said in a lecture in 1996,

00:29:18--> 00:29:39

on chargifi when I responded to him about suicide bombing, I said at that time, that it made me consider a military guy. Meaning there is such a thing as a suicide mission in military terms.

00:29:40--> 00:29:44

So we don't necessarily want to say it's all off.

00:29:45--> 00:29:51

Of course, this is a time when the Palestinians and fighting against Israel

00:29:52--> 00:29:53

would

00:29:54--> 00:29:57

climb on Israeli shoot by

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

Given the number of soldiers,

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

or put themselves next to these two bosses, and

00:30:14--> 00:30:19

However, this activity that went against the population,

00:30:21--> 00:30:27

and that means you're going into restaurants, into supermarkets, airports, etc.

00:30:28--> 00:30:30

I thought I thought

00:30:33--> 00:30:37

that this was a fire alarm for buildings. Because it's now

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

today

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

and I thought

00:30:48--> 00:30:59

after that, however, all those more and only one lecture were actually made may be considered a military tactic.

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

You

00:31:04--> 00:31:07

are calling to terrorism.

00:31:09--> 00:31:12

So, bang for three years.

00:31:15--> 00:31:16

United States,

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

I've also bad.

00:31:20--> 00:31:24

Why? Because you are an

00:31:25--> 00:31:26

open search

00:31:28--> 00:31:32

for the name of the World Trade Center, Bobby 19.

00:31:35--> 00:31:36

Okay, well, let's do this. I'm going back to

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

when I mean that has been charged,

00:31:44--> 00:31:45

charged.

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

But we consider me to be a surgery cause

00:31:51--> 00:32:00

I really saw that machine. First of all, we ended up arresting major offering gaming and racing with a boss. Or you may end up on the phone.

00:32:01--> 00:32:07

So you are guilty by association, you are now in full concert.

00:32:08--> 00:32:09

So

00:32:11--> 00:32:18

when I come here for a number of July, I was invited down to give a lecture. And I was surprised

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

when they informed

00:32:22--> 00:32:23

you on an American

00:32:25--> 00:32:25

history.

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

Hey, man in Australia, I didn't

00:32:39--> 00:32:39

know

00:32:41--> 00:32:44

why you're on the American virus.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

There must be something wrong with you.

00:32:51--> 00:33:01

So back to Australia? Well, you know, in the end, of course, it's not really that critical for me as an individual, by

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

a trend,

00:33:05--> 00:33:13

a trend where people who actually have a moderate voice, I, myself was lectured all over the world,

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

consistently

00:33:19--> 00:33:29

against terrorist attacks against Osama bin Laden and what he represented, and all those calls for unleashing violence in society.

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

But

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

all of that is your

00:33:36--> 00:33:42

pain, because I am a person who also says you will send shouldn't be most of them.

00:33:43--> 00:33:51

They're supposed to be an instrument of choice. Whether you're a lawyer, or a doctor, or student, you're a Muslim.

00:33:52--> 00:34:03

Meaning that you must live your student life accordingly to this principle. And these principles are sound, morally sound principles,

00:34:05--> 00:34:18

similar to your doctor, whatever position you're in, as a Muslim, there are guidelines for whatever profession you're in. So I'm saying people need to know who you are.

00:34:19--> 00:34:26

If you are to worship God, as he describes him to worship Him, then you need to know what your religion is.

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

And you can find out what you need to learn.

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

We have in the

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

basic

00:34:37--> 00:34:42

you can say bag of the song Oh, yeah, a variety of conditions that are

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

most of them focus on women.

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

So

00:34:52--> 00:34:57

you will not be surprised I'm surprised to hear if you go outside

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

In the West, someone who wants to figure in

00:35:03--> 00:35:07

you Muslims, you who

00:35:08--> 00:35:13

mutilated genital females, your female.

00:35:19--> 00:35:23

The suture, the female genital mutilation. Well,

00:35:28--> 00:35:29

in Egypt,

00:35:30--> 00:35:33

Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia,

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

they do

00:35:36--> 00:35:41

some of them do practice, a form of female circumcision, which is is

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

that something which is

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

110%.

00:35:50--> 00:35:54

Or these people, they practice in PT before Islam.

00:35:56--> 00:36:03

And I find that Christianity is also practices, which is in Ethiopia, which is the Sudan,

00:36:04--> 00:36:06

because it was a practice of

00:36:11--> 00:36:12

Islam. So we are

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

so low,

00:36:18--> 00:36:19

that they're

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

not going to speak about

00:36:26--> 00:36:29

Moses and we're never heard about

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

Bob, that becomes live

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

another day, on a

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

farm in Jordan,

00:36:44--> 00:36:44

Turkey,

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

where the

00:36:51--> 00:37:03

members of the family find, usually a female member has this honor by having some form of extramarital affair or relationship

00:37:04--> 00:37:15

not sanctioned by Islam. So, they believe that it is necessary for them to purify the honor by character.

00:37:17--> 00:37:20

So, the Father, the brother, the uncle,

00:37:21--> 00:37:25

decided they could aspire gotcha in order

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

to be notified.

00:37:30--> 00:37:30

And

00:37:32--> 00:37:34

practice known.

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

They punish me the laws vary.

00:37:40--> 00:37:42

And they get a couple of years, whatever.

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

But

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

is there such a thing?

00:37:53--> 00:37:53

Is there such a thing as

00:37:57--> 00:38:12

murder, murder, punishable by death, giving somebody whether it's your sister, your mother, your daughter, then you are to be executed? That's all we have. But we have been associated with this now.

00:38:14--> 00:38:18

So don't be surprised to see these discussions with others.

00:38:26--> 00:38:29

So, we have faced with

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

a variety

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

of false labels, false attacks,

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

which

00:38:39--> 00:38:45

our resolve, as I said before of media exploitation, itself,

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

which

00:38:48--> 00:38:52

oftentimes is not very exciting. So

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

the false accusations

00:38:56--> 00:38:59

by way of news, whenever the same type of

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

situation

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

around the world and what is the solution?

00:39:07--> 00:39:10

Well, we do I'm involved with media,

00:39:11--> 00:39:20

we cannot run away from the media, we do have to participate and try to bring our

00:39:22--> 00:39:32

beliefs, our concepts, our correct image to bear on the media. Of course, many of you writing your

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

report will not be interested. They won't write the way you say.

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

Every reporter besides

00:39:42--> 00:39:45

you will find out how many songs are

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

there and then try to express our views properly. So people demand support and encourage them and utilize them to

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

Presented correctly, which is

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

exactly what happened to me actually, in Denmark,

00:40:09--> 00:40:13

where Muslim communities afraid of the media,

00:40:15--> 00:40:24

there is one where they actually didn't want to come into the next bag and then buy one from me mentioned is actually

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

really good.

00:40:31--> 00:40:39

It's good when they are, because they are discrepancies, a separate window here and this one, this will set

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

something up.

00:40:42--> 00:40:48

So to expose in our roles, papers etc, like to distort the image.

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

So I encourage

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

me to depress

00:40:55--> 00:41:02

community fear for brass. Because we know, there might be

00:41:04--> 00:41:05

you know, pictures of

00:41:08--> 00:41:10

people involved bombing in the

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

public center.

00:41:13--> 00:41:15

So it was a source of some

00:41:17--> 00:41:18

situation.

00:41:19--> 00:41:20

However,

00:41:21--> 00:41:23

on my way to the lecture, I will,

00:41:25--> 00:41:26

I will give them the full opportunity.

00:41:29--> 00:41:34

And so I'm not sure, which was on Islamophobia. I

00:41:35--> 00:41:36

thought,

00:41:37--> 00:41:38

oh,

00:41:42--> 00:41:44

and watch

00:41:45--> 00:41:46

was very

00:41:49--> 00:41:55

false video, accuse somebody saying anything that people are claiming. So they made a very positive

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

picture of

00:41:59--> 00:42:13

Islam in the paper. And they even said, he goes down to the summit center where I was to interview Muslim, Danish converts, the community and myself.

00:42:17--> 00:42:19

And the Bible as a sister, they're shocked how

00:42:20--> 00:42:32

something positive No, they've never been doing it before. But the point is that Muslims that always been running away from that, and the people here are always running away, to have something to hide.

00:42:35--> 00:42:38

So they can find it in this guy. So of course,

00:42:40--> 00:42:48

we can't run away, we have to meet the press. Although Wilson's have to be involved in

00:42:50--> 00:42:57

they have to get up by the way, also from the political policy, because decisions are being made on a

00:42:58--> 00:43:02

Muslim society, whether they're driving situation online.

00:43:04--> 00:43:09

So where they find candidates that are openly seeking

00:43:10--> 00:43:15

and other candidates that are moderate in this region and supportive or whatever support

00:43:17--> 00:43:22

wants to go with appear to look out for their interests,

00:43:24--> 00:43:25

it is necessary

00:43:26--> 00:43:39

to be involved, because if they don't get involved, and then the party or the parties come in, that have very negative attitudes towards sources, and

00:43:40--> 00:43:41

then most of them

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

are

00:43:44--> 00:43:47

they brought upon themselves. So

00:43:48--> 00:43:53

this is something necessarily a strategy in order to deal with

00:43:54--> 00:44:00

problems if you're faced with faces today. However, here in

00:44:02--> 00:44:03

that

00:44:05--> 00:44:10

where we are faced with some of the issues that I spoke about,

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

Muslims

00:44:14--> 00:44:14

elsewhere,

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

we do have our own set of problems.

00:44:19--> 00:44:23

There is turmoil within our own society

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

and the turmoil

00:44:28--> 00:44:32

that rests on the same

00:44:33--> 00:44:40

issues that exist externally, but it just manifests in a different form.

00:44:42--> 00:44:43

There is

00:44:45--> 00:44:46

a culture

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

a level

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

of what we may call culture, this lab

00:44:54--> 00:44:58

which dominates the truth.

00:45:03--> 00:45:04

Not only

00:45:11--> 00:45:11

this

00:45:12--> 00:45:18

is widespread in the society actually is widespread across the world.

00:45:20--> 00:45:21

As a result of a

00:45:23--> 00:45:24

negative

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

expression or negative practices have emerged.

00:45:32--> 00:45:37

Among the evil that we may find here

00:45:39--> 00:45:39

is

00:45:41--> 00:45:42

the challenge

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

of

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

universalism

00:45:48--> 00:45:57

where all Muslims are won in the United States delete this one

00:45:59--> 00:46:00

and make it worse we heard.

00:46:04--> 00:46:05

Besides

00:46:06--> 00:46:18

that the law speaks about dividing human kind of information and tries to know each other aspiring writers like to see a law in a situation

00:46:19--> 00:46:24

not to despise each other. Because, in the sight of God,

00:46:26--> 00:46:30

the most notable of those who are in fact, the most.

00:46:34--> 00:46:35

However,

00:46:37--> 00:46:40

when knowledge of Islam becomes

00:46:42--> 00:46:46

people reverse to tribal

00:46:48--> 00:46:52

tribalism, which manifests itself

00:46:53--> 00:46:57

as a form of racism, which is now entered into

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

society here

00:47:03--> 00:47:06

where people are looking at each other,

00:47:07--> 00:47:09

probably perspective of

00:47:10--> 00:47:11

India in

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

Africa.

00:47:14--> 00:47:16

And Islam is just Muslim.

00:47:17--> 00:47:20

Yeah, roots maybe from this place.

00:47:22--> 00:47:25

But, in the end, we all came from

00:47:27--> 00:47:29

an advocate from just a

00:47:32--> 00:47:41

pilgrimage, where he called the builders together, and I told him that there was no superiority

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

of an article

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

black or white.

00:47:50--> 00:47:51

That is you're

00:47:53--> 00:47:53

in

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

love.

00:48:02--> 00:48:03

This is where I choose

00:48:05--> 00:48:07

everything else?

00:48:10--> 00:48:17

False evil, solar solar farms, I would say when starting tribalism

00:48:22--> 00:48:22

because

00:48:25--> 00:48:26

each always

00:48:27--> 00:48:30

destroys the true bonds of brotherhood

00:48:32--> 00:48:32

of humanity.

00:48:34--> 00:48:38

So Islam is opposed to this way.

00:48:40--> 00:48:50

And if you look back in history, to Spain, we spoke about Spain was ruled by Muslims for 700 years. If we go back and look to see why

00:48:53--> 00:48:54

you will find

00:48:56--> 00:48:58

a stray away from their

00:49:01--> 00:49:03

ugly head rows.

00:49:04--> 00:49:06

distinction is between Arabs and Africans.

00:49:10--> 00:49:14

taking hold of the more

00:49:15--> 00:49:22

fertile area is the major cities, relegating African

00:49:23--> 00:49:25

origin rules to

00:49:28--> 00:49:29

my cities.

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

And

00:49:32--> 00:49:37

we're not cynical, and you were allowed to name

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

everybody else.

00:49:45--> 00:49:46

It is against

00:49:48--> 00:49:54

DJs and we do need community to weed out

00:49:55--> 00:49:56

all this

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

we need to know

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

This is in fact, this is leading to a law

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

demands or lawsuits against it.

00:50:09--> 00:50:16

And Islam, Muslims will never succeed as long as it remains alive.

00:50:21--> 00:50:24

So the Muslim world in

00:50:28--> 00:50:28

general,

00:50:31--> 00:50:33

is that ignorance

00:50:37--> 00:50:40

that Muslims don't really

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

engage in a variety

00:50:47--> 00:50:52

whether it's in the name of terrorism, whether it's in the name of honor,

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

which our heads

00:50:56--> 00:51:01

and keep them down, because they cannot rise

00:51:02--> 00:51:06

to play the role that they should

00:51:09--> 00:51:14

1.5 women people have something to say, but it can't be

00:51:15--> 00:51:17

because the smartphone by

00:51:20--> 00:51:22

ignoring classes,

00:51:23--> 00:51:24

common it

00:51:25--> 00:51:29

lands in our communities around the world.

00:51:34--> 00:51:38

In spite of all of that, the picture isn't a gloomy picture.

00:51:39--> 00:51:44

Because we all in the last 30 years, there's

00:51:47--> 00:51:53

a spread of knowledge, grammar, knowledge, knowledge

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

has

00:51:56--> 00:51:57

gone.

00:51:58--> 00:52:04

So, we find the way to job something which 3040 years ago

00:52:06--> 00:52:08

in different parts of the world.

00:52:09--> 00:52:10

Now, it was become

00:52:12--> 00:52:19

obvious symbol, but it is one that the ride or Sonic banking, for example,

00:52:20--> 00:52:29

were also separated themselves from the insurance banking system just accepted that it was and dealt with it in a way which is of course, fertility

00:52:31--> 00:52:32

alternatives

00:52:34--> 00:52:39

besides banking, which was scoffed at in the beginning, when

00:52:40--> 00:52:43

the Muslim economists are proposing banking

00:52:48--> 00:52:49

backing

00:52:53--> 00:53:03

away, however, today Harvard University, there is a chair for Islamic banking and economics.

00:53:05--> 00:53:08

major banks of the West Citibank Bank of

00:53:09--> 00:53:17

Islamic window is where they say Islamic economic products.

00:53:20--> 00:53:26

Welcome back. So this is all of the way.

00:53:29--> 00:53:31

So the future is bright.

00:53:32--> 00:53:37

But it requires our own efforts here to know

00:53:39--> 00:53:42

to understand this correctly, and to apply

00:53:46--> 00:53:48

it Why

00:53:50--> 00:53:56

would you go we need to establish the Islamic online university

00:53:58--> 00:54:04

in order to make authentic knowledge on Islam available on a global scale

00:54:06--> 00:54:07

within four years,

00:54:10--> 00:54:12

my university went from zero students

00:54:14--> 00:54:16

to 45,000.

00:54:18--> 00:54:19

From our

00:54:21--> 00:54:26

reported earlier figures, these are the current figures

00:54:27--> 00:54:30

199 different countries,

00:54:32--> 00:54:33

three countries in the world.

00:54:35--> 00:54:38

me this university

00:54:40--> 00:54:42

offering courses for free or tuition.

00:54:46--> 00:54:53

The university with the most diverse student body, of any university in the world.

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

of the

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

No internet University's online universities, University of Phoenix,

00:55:08--> 00:55:09

US

00:55:10--> 00:55:11

external

00:55:13--> 00:55:17

control used to promote students study around 70 to 80.

00:55:21--> 00:55:26

Where students come from all over the world to study there, they should all

00:55:29--> 00:55:32

University as 100.

00:55:39--> 00:55:40

Why?

00:55:42--> 00:55:44

Because, first and foremost

00:55:52--> 00:55:56

secondly, it's primarily Muslim. So we have been studying

00:55:58--> 00:56:01

primarily Olson, and Muslim, everywhere,

00:56:03--> 00:56:05

anywhere in the world.

00:56:06--> 00:56:09

Just this last summer, I was

00:56:11--> 00:56:13

visiting a good friend of mine.

00:56:14--> 00:56:22

And they just come back from a trip to the northern circle, the Arctic Circle,

00:56:23--> 00:56:31

were visited the mall, which is the farthest north of anywhere, inside

00:56:33--> 00:56:40

any raw images, you know, PowerPoint presentation shows me off as chemo

00:56:46--> 00:56:47

Muslim.

00:56:52--> 00:56:54

But the reality is

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

virtually everywhere.

00:56:58--> 00:57:07

This huge, diverse student base anyway, the point is that this is an opportunity for you to

00:57:08--> 00:57:09

learn autism,

00:57:10--> 00:57:21

free, tuition free during the VA courses. diploma courses are all free. You're welcome to join and to learn.

00:57:23--> 00:57:38

So that the overall situation of Muslims here in Guyana can change. The model of Islamic law University is changing the nation through education.

00:57:39--> 00:57:44

But this is where real change the lives of people become educated in

00:57:46--> 00:57:56

their lives. And according to the teaching and movie production lines, they will play a positive role in the society.

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

They will not be known for drugs and

00:58:02--> 00:58:05

other evils.

00:58:06--> 00:58:14

Because this Islamic Society holds as its highest goals.

00:58:16--> 00:58:22

Human moral values established establishment of morality in society.

00:58:25--> 00:58:25

We tend

00:58:28--> 00:58:31

to prefer the highest of moral character.

00:58:32--> 00:58:34

And you said you're also

00:58:36--> 00:58:36

right.

00:58:37--> 00:58:39

Good character.

00:58:40--> 00:58:40

We hear

00:58:49--> 00:58:50

a lot of evil.

00:58:53--> 00:58:53

The prayer

00:58:55--> 00:58:56

there's a lot of

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

a lot of evil speech

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

that is supposed to change our behavior. But it doesn't.

00:59:10--> 00:59:12

Why are we still iffy?

00:59:14--> 00:59:19

Why? Because we're obviously not afraid. The prayers

00:59:21--> 00:59:22

were made our own version.

00:59:23--> 00:59:29

Why would she I'm conscious of what we're saying and what we're doing. We're just going through the motions.

00:59:35--> 00:59:38

And of course, that prayer will not change any

00:59:39--> 00:59:42

rituals will not

00:59:43--> 00:59:45

make anything better.

00:59:46--> 00:59:52

When combined with it, understand understanding on the side and goal.

00:59:54--> 00:59:57

Then it can bring about change.

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

So

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

As I say, the future is not

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

just

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

the knowledge that is spreading more and more people are becoming conscious aware of it.

01:00:14--> 01:00:24

To find more young people in the market today, go back two years and masorti only old people when they're on the old people and

01:00:29--> 01:00:29

young people

01:00:31--> 01:00:35

live a happy life enjoy the things that are not allowed to

01:00:37--> 01:00:39

be gone come by Raj give me

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

diacetate

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

of course in

01:00:45--> 01:00:50

such a way of treating divisions, error

01:00:53--> 01:00:54

is of no use

01:00:55--> 01:00:57

agenda. That way, it's not

01:00:59--> 01:01:00

for play again.

01:01:04--> 01:01:04

So

01:01:07--> 01:01:08

I would like to

01:01:09--> 01:01:11

remind you, that we do have

01:01:13--> 01:01:20

which bomb comes in trying to stay positive and optimistic seeking knowledge is obligatory

01:01:23--> 01:01:24

knowledge

01:01:25--> 01:01:27

as well as knowledge of the world in

01:01:30--> 01:01:37

the back of the box is about, hey, we're not in the best of us are those who are most beneficial.

01:01:39--> 01:01:45

So cells need to return to that role of society becoming beneficial

01:01:47--> 01:01:56

to the overall growth, development and progress of society. There are

01:01:57--> 01:01:57

a lot

01:01:58--> 01:01:59

more side

01:02:01--> 01:02:01

effects
