What's so often This allows
operators to do a lot of these investments, the last messenger of Allaah
this evenings topic
is really the Muslim world.
We see in the news today,
a variety of different revolts taking place in what is known as the Allied world, the ad portion of the Muslim world.
And there is a generalization
concerning the term model,
which stands for agency to have a lot of sand earlier.
And as soon as like Somalia,
as you say, is important for us to understand the forces that are played
what the Media presents
is oftentimes a mixture of factors addiction
attempt to promote the lost native images of the Muslim world.
We are in an era
where suddenly is done in the UK and the 90s running a horse
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.
a fear of Islam
and irrational fear
one which really doesn't have
a factual or
base. But why don't we just did created either by the media
center in newspapers
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.
help the masses focus on an element in the society to be in fact the
point at which people may blame assigning blame to visit
as being the source of their woes, their problems.
We can see that in recent times, with the way over Batman on the job
across Europe, beginning of France
to Germany, Belgium, Dr.
the coloring of the face
something which in the
Muslim women a very small fraction of the Muslim woman wore and
by all the political convenience, it became a point of
why we hear coming from the political figures of Europe and elsewhere. Is that a once

So that also
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,
require persons to distinguish themselves
to be Muslim in this verse,
it doesn't mean that they shouldn't be around the members of society, but they are not productive members of society.
we can say, Islamic
view is something which is not new result of
This is an ancient
and founded in
my own father,
whoever he takes the waves of people, it was that
on the sword and 70 of the Muslims to distinguish themselves in whatever circumstance whatever society they find themselves, when
they have distinctive ways of dress,
which they stand by, regardless of changes that take place in
elements or parts of society, or even on a world scale.
Where, for example,
the reason the change is taking place in the West
with regards to homosexuality, for example,
were in the 70s.
After being considered from the perspective of psychologists
to mediate illness and mental illness, and which was treated with a variety of
in the 70s.
was replaced by another known as homophobia,
that is a dislike
of homosexuality. The one who disliked it openly rejected it considered to be improper or
considered to be invalid.
He or she just seems
to be reprogrammed to accept this, what came to be known as an alternative lifestyle,
for homosexual movements spread throughout the country that the west
to the point where not only were homosexuals to be accepted, but their way of life has to be considered commanded.
And it also hosts
as I say,
church is dangerous feature for example, which had based on teaching of the Old Testament, they held that this is something sinful lifestyle is
punishable by death in the Old Testament,
the father said the church changed in many cases change their position.
And they moved along with the changes in four sided
by the society.
So, we ended up I was dealing in homosexual ministers
Catholicism basically has drawn
from a local perspective
in this regard, the stood firm, those countries which
may Sharia law, Islamic law law other countries like Saudi Arabia
may the official
basis of the Constitution is
inscribed in their laws that is considered to be
punishable by death as adultery is
as murder is, it is.
So, this is now
A an issue over wish, for example, myself recently visited Germany in
March of this year.
And while I was there, I gave a lecture and Humber
lecture was legally permitted,
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
at the end of
However, on my way back to the hotel,
I was surrounded by German Swati
taken into headquarters, and was read a document from the mayor Amber, which stated that I will be buying from Germany for life.
Because according to the documents, I have located the death of homosexuals.
While I was giving lectures on
various on YouTube, a action by you, in which you say this
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.
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
an important foreign society there and I represented a threat to their existence. Therefore, I wouldn't be banned forever.
This is the overreaction taking place
for her to hold the beliefs of Islam as now the
is the extension of Islamophobia.
a product of an overall subtler which exists on a world scale between the Chevy
and what is your today as
In particular secondaries as being a medieval political system, in which the
role of religion is removed from their spheres of education,
economics, political expression, etc, religion is taken out of that sphere altogether.
based on the principle of Sharia,
whole religion should influence all aspects of life, because the basic reason
we do not have a tradition of separating what is called church from state, church and state law.
So, from a design perspective,
Islam should govern education, economics, politics, all those aspects in the country, where else
worse, it is not
to implement the Sharia.
However, again, a fear develops, I imagine example where a number of states have banned
most of the politicians who have been involved in this

Everything is not related to gender.

it means you're banning Muslims from dying.

So, let's move
wash it out.
So this is really
what is at the bottom of much of the turmoil of the sea in the world today especially
the values of democracy
dominating most of the world's
communist system, which, at one time was in opposition to the capitalist system is also second bankruptcy
the next largest body
of people their secondary democracy as a way of ruling the country and for hosting the city in multicultural societies like India, democracy
it's not about that at that respect. However, the imposition of second democracy
doesn't work represents something else,
because it comes into direct conflict with the Sharia.
Most companies today have been
adopted some form of secondary democracy and that is the norm in most countries. However,
among the Muslim scholars
in the Muslim scholarship
they are unanimous in all day that she
remains a father
for Muslim life and their husbands are able to implement
that they are lying to themselves.
This is based on the same as in
Jonathan's rule belongs to a law
firm in a salon musubi. Dahlia.
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
to doing what is pleasing to God, as defined.
So we have two forces at play, on one hand.
And on the other hand, we also have
a in many Muslim countries, dictatorships, where the right people are abused, and the population suffering under the crush of this evil rule.
The people eventually exploded into the sheer amount of things on fire, and from their spread on Egypt.
Tunisia and Egypt in
Egypt, stepped down to Libya, Syria,
that response by the people was really a nice way, a response to oppression
of the masses of people oppression, which does not actually have any direct
connection with forces of homes.
But similarly, autocratic rules, where leaders abuse their
countrymen and women taking the wealth
on territory, giving the wild off to
less than hours,
in a way in which society can suffer.
this was really an attempt by people to find some form of redress some form of
normal normalcy in their lives. They were living under very
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
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
is one of those the same time though it has removed some of the barriers and
we can say, political
on Muslim parties were mostly warehouses wanted to be a part and parcel of the
rule of the various countries, the well known Islamic parties were surprised
people were murdered etc. So with
the batteries firing
in most places, so also
figures well known figures politicians have now come out in greater force, their voices are being heard, etc.
in general, these results
are not guided by principles. So many of the hosts that people might have
we are looking at Muslims over there. My wishes
will last or probably won't be realized.
Because other other forces at play, that don't want to see this turn into an Islamic
change in the society,
this Western civilization,
And, in fact,
says, the desire to implement
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

well, because I said in a lecture in 1996,
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.

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.
So you are guilty by association, you are now in full concert.
when I come here for a number of July, I was invited down to give a lecture. And I was surprised
when they informed
you on an American

why you're on the American virus.
There must be something wrong with you.
So back to Australia? Well, you know, in the end, of course, it's not really that critical for me as an individual, by
a trend where people who actually have a moderate voice, I, myself was lectured all over the world,
against terrorist attacks against Osama bin Laden and what he represented, and all those calls for unleashing violence in society.
all of that is your
pain, because I am a person who also says you will send shouldn't be most of them.
They're supposed to be an instrument of choice. Whether you're a lawyer, or a doctor, or student, you're a Muslim.
Meaning that you must live your student life accordingly to this principle. And these principles are sound, morally sound principles,
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.
If you are to worship God, as he describes him to worship Him, then you need to know what your religion is.
And you can find out what you need to learn.
We have in the

Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia,
some of them do practice, a form of female circumcision, which is is
that something which is
Or these people, they practice in PT before Islam.
And I find that Christianity is also practices, which is in Ethiopia, which is the Sudan,

another day, on a
farm in Jordan,
members of the family find, usually a female member has this honor by having some form of extramarital affair or relationship
not sanctioned by Islam. So, they believe that it is necessary for them to purify the honor by character.
So, the Father, the brother, the uncle,

And they get a couple of years, whatever.
is there such a thing?
Is there such a thing as
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.
So don't be surprised to see these discussions with others.
So, we have faced with
of false labels, false attacks,
our resolve, as I said before of media exploitation, itself,
oftentimes is not very exciting. So
the false accusations
by way of news, whenever the same type of
around the world and what is the solution?
Well, we do I'm involved with media,
we cannot run away from the media, we do have to participate and try to bring our
beliefs, our concepts, our correct image to bear on the media. Of course, many of you writing your
report will not be interested. They won't write the way you say.
Every reporter besides

exactly what happened to me actually, in Denmark,

And the Bible as a sister, they're shocked how
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.
So they can find it in this guy. So of course,
we can't run away, we have to meet the press. Although Wilson's have to be involved in
they have to get up by the way, also from the political policy, because decisions are being made on a
Muslim society, whether they're driving situation online.
So where they find candidates that are openly seeking
and other candidates that are moderate in this region and supportive or whatever support
wants to go with appear to look out for their interests,
it is necessary
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
then most of them
they brought upon themselves. So
this is something necessarily a strategy in order to deal with
problems if you're faced with faces today. However, here in
where we are faced with some of the issues that I spoke about,
we do have our own set of problems.
There is turmoil within our own society
and the turmoil
that rests on the same
issues that exist externally, but it just manifests in a different form.
