in the gala and Sam and teaching, translating, and writing, as well as quite a number of books. And he's done a tremendous amount of work
in the field.
And we'd like to welcome today. Again, Shaykh Abu Amina

As my brother
said, the topic today is
on the priorities of a Muslim
who started was chosen?
there are a number of different moods
calling through a variety of different priorities.
Everybody agrees on Islam.
what should we focus on as Muslims,
particularly Muslims here in the West?
Should we be focusing on Jihad?
Or should it be
as establishing the telephone?
Or should it be?
Or should it be on a barber?
These are questions which
many of us
have in questions,
especially because all of them
Who can deny that you have is important?
Who can deny that having a challenge
the Muslim world is not important.
Who can deny that
calling people to Islam is not important. And who can deny that a Barbara
acts of worship which have been identified by a prophet
when he told us that Islam was built on science,
five basic principles.
Those are the basic acts of a barber, everything else is a distinction from the pack.
So where should we as Muslims here focus, our focus because we cannot do all of them at the same time.
So we have to choose among them. loads which we will start with
having a fabulous we shift on to the next level for we have to put them in orders of fidelity in order for our Islamic activity or Sonic movement or Islamic work to be effective.
as I see it,
for us to determine
where our priorities should be.
We have to answer
the most fundamental question that every human being asked himself at some point in his or her lifetime,
not just Muslims, but every single human being
asked himself or herself. Why was I created?
Why am I here?
What am I doing in this world? That is God
are questions which each and every one of us reflect on at different points in our life.
Not some answers, which are given generally.
But oftentimes these answers don't satisfy us.
They seem somewhat consistent. We still wonder
why he right here.
we're looking at the issue of priorities and putting things in order.
I intend to look into the issue of
why was the man created?
I know all of you, generally speaking, in the back of your mind, you're saying,
What are you getting?
Why do we need to have a big long topic about
why we were created when we are no? Good.
Presented two anonymously now created.
In the next lesson, you're active and ready to rock with authority.
And when you stop, when
it means, in your own mind, in our own minds, it's not really clear to us.
what I intend to do is to look into this topic, to give us some clarity, to understand our position and, and found that inshallah we can then look out to the world around us, and determine what should be our priorities, according to Islamic work.
why did Allah create this? Why did
that was man created? For some people,
we have to deal with those people around us.
Don't consider that to be any pepper.
In that situation, because
it's just a product of
The forces of nature have produced to
We don't have apes or dogs or cows, thinking about why they were here, why they created them, we don't have to think about it.
not being the basis of the philosophy of Western society,
that man is without purpose, then the whole issue of
governments, morality, etc, has no basis in Revelation, there is no guidance there.
And the result of all that is of course, the corruption that we are living.
So for Muslims,
who say that, when we go into this topic, we have to seek understanding, some divine revelation, and not human stuff, speculation.
Human speculation, has no nouns, we can imagine all kinds of things and of course, any of you who have studied philosophy of religion or philosophy, and you can see how many opinions that exists about why man,
why existence, you know, all the variety of philosophies that are out there. Nobody can say this one or that one, which one is
correct, which one is incorrect?
Because there is no guidance behind it. No, no divine revelation.
And it is only from divine revelation, that we can determine the reality of our creation. Because it is Allah who has created us
and he knows the purpose of our creation.
We get it
understand ourselves, much less trying to understand the essence of things. Why are
and the Quran, and through the center,
which was brought by Islamic messenger, as well as messengers before.
Now, if we are to look
was man created?
an even deeper question that we should ask before that.
Why did God?
This is an even deeper question, before we even get to that, why did God
because man is not the greatest
act of creation, that we should be so focused on why men
because Allah subhanaw taala says,
and so on rocker,
those 57 now focus on my wife, out of the bedroom, and
when I can accept a nap Murphy's Law,
indeed, the creation of the heavens, and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind. But most of mankind realizes,
that is not the greatest act of creation, this universe is far more complex,
the issue of creation
should then go to why create, as opposed to simply why create not why create man and the universe and everything else. Like,
fundamentally, we can say
that the creation
is the natural consequence of the attributes of creator,
the creator, that is one of those attributes that's already been formed.
That being is attributes which relate to
the natural consequence, the product of that attribute is inspiration.
If you have to look at solidity
on a lower level,
it tells you, I'm a painter.
And you asked him well while you're painting, so I don't have any.
The concept of a painter who doesn't think of it as some kind of something that gelling together here of course, beyond this, that we can understand, even on the simplest level, that the two goes together.
The perception of a painter lies in his painting, his qualities ability to paint is manifest in his paintings,
and allow beyond that,
as creator reveals, this quality of creation
is manifest in the creation itself.
Out of the need,
to create, so, he created
the fact that He is the Creator
is manifest in the creation.
There we consider the act of creation
with regards to Allah is unique,
so and so created a painting or he created a car or created different things in this world, human beings create things.
Use this terminology. Actually, that is in a limited sense
Human beings really don't create
Because they can only
create what already exists.
they manipulate when we make a chair or a table,
we create this table, we didn't create the work, we have to take it from a tree, we didn't create the metal makes the schools and now we have to knock down stones and take the metal out and form it.
So, we are not creating from nothing
more manipulating what Allah has already created into the friendship and
we call it a creation.
But the real act of creation,
that is creation from nothing is unique to Allah alone.
This is a concept, which many people
because they couldn't grasp the idea of creation from nothingness does not want to conclude that the world is
to say, inside of each and every atom is
not people who call themselves Muslims,
non Muslims, I've said it before.
And we have this,
who claimed that Allah inside each and everything,
because I live in reality, everything is sick. This is the interpretation.
That means then, that the creation is alive, and allow the creation
of a dangerous concept to get met. Even some of those who make this claim to say you don't have to.
You don't have to worship anyone outside of yourself
is famous for the statement, he's considered one of the things amongst the so called Sufi religion.
No need to learn outside yourself.
Sufficient the recipe.
So this is
this concept of allow being within this creation, a distinction between allowing the creator it needs to shift because they are unable to accept
the uniqueness of allows creation will compare the act of creation of Allah to human creation. That is, just as we manipulate Allah to pieces of himself and made the earth and the universe.
Honors will say that
all human beings have inside of themselves a lot. You know, there's a type of Allah which is inside each and every one of you. And the essence the purpose of life
is then for us to realize that we have a lie inside of ourselves. Remove the material blocks that blocks us from the law, and again become one with a law in what they call find out.
Sufi religion teaches
becoming run with a law returning back to Allah in this sense.
is part of the teachings of
deluded man into the
imagination. As part of the belief of the Hindus, that probably Nirvana, the concept when you die, you're reborn again. When you die, you're reborn and you move up in stages. If you're a good boy or good girl, each time you're reborn, you grew up higher and higher, today reach the top, you know you reach the peak. When you die the next time you become one with universal soul, Nirvana, that's the end of rebirth. So your whole purpose to existence is to return and become one with God again.
This is all
a product of an inability to understand the concept of creation from nothingness which is unique to Allah. Allah says low frequency
There is nothing like him and he is the zero and zero law
So, when we try to interpret the last creation, like the way we create, when we have made him like his creation, and it leads us ultimately into the aquifer ship that I mentioned to you, which is quite common in the Muslim world,
because when you look into the various branches of the Sufi religion
various acts of, of purification, you know, they call it, you know exercises where you torture the body, you spin in your dance, you jump in the air, and you rock and roll and all kind of stuff, you know, what is the purpose of the car, they were telling you, you know, to liberate the soul from the earthly body.
And to achieve that state, you know,
it means that they upward.
This concept was not allowed, you know, many centuries ago, when he was promoting this idea, and he was put before a panel of judges, assuming this concept that he was expecting, and they asked him to return to get the stuff back to some kind of ship, he stood up and opened up his cloak and said, there's nothing inside this talk except Allah.
And, of course, you know, Logan, the Sufi religion, they are stories about the cookie cutter was rolling into a thing of na, na.
of course, it might have
the gin may have answered. And so the things that the the calf of the Israelites were uncovered in
Egypt, and the people after crossing the Red Sea, you know, they have this desire to have a God that they could see. So they made a golden cup for shipping. That was good and capital thing.
This is what convinced them?
Well, we know that
the Eagles can enter into physical entities and make sounds and give these impressions. So it's no problem for us to filter Yes, maybe to cycle Yes, when the cut of
a loved one. Honestly,
this is bad.
If we're clear, we're clear in terms of creator and creation, which is no problem
is the creator
of everything besides Him,
which he created from nothing. But he's not him.
up more conference, as taught by the prime, and by Prophet Mohammed,
and his companions, early generation, a righteous scholars among the students of the companions and those who came after the death of generation, that's how do I understood this matter? There was no confusion in your mind. It wasn't until Islam spread into areas like Egypt and
These areas where the Christians have already gotten into deep philosophy is trying to explain how Jesus was a man. And he was God. At the same time our God became man and man with God and you know, all their various arguments that they had the different branches and substance, you know, they've gotten into deep philosophy to explain how it could be and could not be and win the tournament was
not something we should, you know, necessarily condemn them for. He was
unusual, no, it was not sure when a person convert to Islam, the donor carry with them, preferably means before forever. Try to fight for them, or the basic principles. They will accept and reject the things which are greatly contradicted. But it doesn't mean for every last fact that they have everything which is wrong in their concepts, and their philosophy and your ideology has now been No, no.
This is why in the latter years of apartments as well as life sciences,
When he was coming back from from the battle, and his companions,
asked him to set aside a tree
for them, that they could hang their weapons on.
That the way he
begun to have these trees that they own weapons on you leaving the window on the weapon on the tree, he now became super powerful, and power was coming from the tree into those weapons and other shields with no black steel in there, the swords with the Yemenis have
some of the companions when
they asked them to designate one for the official one and Islamic right.
They want one like what they understood that you know what the pilgrims
were asked in the process, notes without any slanted tree that they could handle
is a companion to the pocket.
And he has to clarify for them. I like to combine
there's no case for it. And it's not. So if it could happen to some of the companions, then blame those people or the generations that come after them, when they come into Islam, and they try some of these wrong ideas. What it is for us to do is to clarify.
what you have in front of us then
Allah created this universe,
out of nothing.
And everything that is
as you said, for example,
Chapter 62. And now
Allah created all things.
And we have the agents on which are things depends.
and the law created you and whatever you do
in order for us to realize that ultimately, our groups
in the world,
it's only testing neither permission or law.
Therefore we should not see any other channels to protect ourselves from evil to gather for ourselves.
As people commonly do today, they will go to fortune tellers. Today
of magazines are fetching colors, the various shapes and forms a call up dialer, dialer, horoscope, you know, dial a fortune, will tell you what to do tomorrow and also avoid the evil and get out of
business in a society that has lost touch with Allah, that's what's open to them. Anything that you've convinced them The purpose is to have some power here, you seem to be able to tell us something of the future, because they've built a reputation for themselves.
try to get some good price.
However, and I stress
that no calamity strikes except by Allah permission,
you will see that
nothing is taking place in this world except by the permission of Allah.
And the path numbers are sanlam further emphasize this principle by saying that we should do work that has been one of mankind's efforts
to do something to help us they could not help us with anything which allow have not already written for
the whole of mankind gathered together
they could not
do anything that Allah had not already written for us.
that is required of that is to be turned
this is all that we have to draw out of this attribute of a lot being the creator of this creation and because of that attributes, its practical significance to us live
Now, there is another aspect
besides the fact that creation exists because Allah is the Creator,
we can also see so much that was that someone has informed us
in the creation,
of a lot of attributes of mercy,
kindness, etc, et cetera.
Allah created man in Paradise, men and women in paradise
them how to
how to turn back to him and his forgiveness and when he would forgive them.
Having done that, they were forgiven.

He has inspired each and every soul

when they fall into sin,
we can absolve us of the lesson by means of repentance.
And Allah forgive.
When we repent, sincerely, repent once I found themselves, you're one who
is not the one without sin.
This is the message.
Seven the hobbies collected inside Islam.
If you did not commit sin, and turn to Allah seeking His forgiveness, he would have replaced you with another people

And as colossal goodness, have replaced us for people who are feminazis to goodness me with forgiveness.

That is all for manifests in creation, and lots of creation,

which comes out of the judgment at the end of this year.
I'm sure we will have

And some people for

And so the companions, they asked,
then what's the point of doing

the conference room anything for me to decide
in the process, and I'm sure
each one of you
find it easy to do whatever he was created for.
So if you choose to giveaway,

Because if Allah created you, and put you in Paradise, right?
And you see that people inherit suffering

Are you ready to ask the left revenue company and
you don't want to question anything,
you will be accepted that you are in paradise.
So the judgment
is not for you.
Ultimately, ultimately, you're going to help
because if you happen to be amongst those who are creating and putting out you would be the one saying
why don't you put me on hold.
And I would say

So I'm not allowed to live out our life.

The only thing
that remains for us
and I pray that in fact it is not

No, it is deserves it.
On that day,
did you see if you could only see the time when the sinners will bow their heads before their life.
They know that a lot of judgment is just that they deserve our without a doubt.
We have now seen and heard.
So send us back.
We now believe with certainty,
only response that will be left for them.
In chapter 23, verse one or 228,
lights go on.
I wrote to a rubenfeld and ODM how eternally the fire will burn their faces. And they will bring disfigured lips,
I will filter them
out versus not insipid to you, and you delight them, they will be proud of our Lord, our movie overcomers. And we will have people as soon
as we ever return to evil, we will truly be unjust.
That's all we can do is beg for another
opportunity. However, as I said, when we die, they remain behind a barrier.
None of us will come back. It is a one way ticket.
For individuals who think you have another chance, you know, this is the new age religion. They think it's new, but it's just plain old Hindu delusion. It's when you die, you got another chance to come back again. You know, and the affection group actually, among Hindus who live in
the UAE there are lot of Hindus working there. And every day the newspaper read about

got to rep not to do that anymore. Let me try in the next life.
It will be a rude awakening
the angel of death. And they find themselves in the next level, realizing that there is no coming back.
And then the creation of men
is manifest the grace
This is a particular point which all of us should reflect on and be thankful to Allah for his grace.
And Christians oftentimes they like to refer to as
rosy who don't believe in the grace of God.
You know, we are those who look at God as you know, judging except about deeds you do actually needs to go to Paradise to do evil deeds, you
them the grace of God.
For those who accept that he became a man
and was crucified by men,
too, to provide salvation for human beings, through films have become so good
that they could not remove that sin through any acts of themselves.
So it was only with the streaming
We could be absolved of our sins.
If you accept
mankind's salvation, when you have earned the grace of God,
no matter what you do, no dude you do is gonna hurt you. As long as you're accept this belief, you have the grace of God. And this is why,
you know, they will come at you that certain about paradise
for believing God
actually plays a major significant role.
And it's important for us to realize how the grace of God manifests in our creation.
Try to do as much as you can,
and be happy.
About only because of his
And when you've done as much as you can be happy

course when the companions heard that,
not even you

Even the Prophet Muhammad
would not have entered

And we completed

to hold us to account

not even the Prophet of Allah.
Allah who his grace and mercy

I believe that you really don't believe

is a manifestation of a large attribute of being the Creator.
And the creation of man within the scheme of things.
manifest a lot of attributes of mercy
is attributes of justice and growth.
the reason for the creation of man, from the point of view of a
from human perspective,
what is the purpose of man's creation? Why did God create man in terms of select peppers,
relative to men.
And this is the one that we are familiar with in Surah
chapter 51, verses six from our collections in the insert into the abdomen,
I've created the jinn and mankind only for my worship.
So relative to Allah
a new or a way in which God has chosen
to manifest those attributes of creation, mercy, Grace, etc, etc. And he could have chosen another one, he could have chosen another creation, but this is the one he chose
to act as human beings.
know that our purpose is to worship Allah.
Allah doesn't need our worship,
need to create, he doesn't need our worship, when He created us to worship. They didn't create out of the need for our worship, because the Lord has no need.
How do you put
of you, men and mankind
the most righteous amongst you.
This would not increase
the dominion of Allah in any way, shape, or form.
rejected evil and corrupt as the most corrupt of mankind, it was not decreed
Dominion of Allah in any way, shape, or form.
Therefore, when we look for the purpose of worship, we have to look into Matt
a lot into that to worship Him.
Because we need to watch
this is something which he has given up
ourselves, we are the ones who benefit from worship.
Worship has been established.
the spiritual growth of man
takes place through the remembrance of Allah. Worship is there fundamentally when you look at all of those aspects of worship, you will see the
focus on the remembrance of Allah.
Allah, music, re establish the prayer, for my remembering
and all of the other aspects of worship. We'll find that so
For the consciousness of God, there's a lot that
he has prescribed for fasting as we discussed before.
In order for us we may fear him in order that we may be conscious of
for us to remember,
that we achieve righteousness, because it is in
the law when we forget, that so fun is able to operate within us and cause us to disobey
fell into sin
is only in his remembrance, that we can attain salvation, salvation lies for men in the remembrance of Allah. So you see all of the
same Bismillah before eating, saying Bismillah before going to our wife, going into the bathroom, and all of the things
that we emit from the sun, that
is to help us to maintain the consciousness of Allah, so that we can grow spiritually.
Now, time is running out.
And I've only gotten about halfway through. So I'm gonna have to shorten things up a bit, just quickly run through some of the other aspects.
in the creation of man alpha in this world, we know a lot of said that He created us to cut
us to know, in the sense that he doesn't know
that this world is perfect for us, in order again, that we can grow spiritually, we cannot develop the spiritual qualities of generosity, unless some of us have more money than others,
who are required to give the wealth that we have to others, when we give we grow.
if we were not in a position where others have more than us,
we wouldn't have the ability to develop a higher spiritual quality of contentment.
satisfaction, what alive given us.
The brothers didn't have more than us food now that struggled to develop that quality.
How to develop
in order to

the higher spiritual qualities
Suitable and eligible to return to paradise.
paradise from which we were created, were created in Paradise,
and this life
trusting so we can grow to
where we deserve paradise.
without proof of creation is the worship of Allah.
This life is
a test for us.
Really, we worship Allah, or when we forget.
So this is where our focus has to begin
when we're looking at our priorities,
have to focus on this has been the primary objective.
The objective is to turn our lives into life of worship, live of righteousness,
upright life, this is our primary objective.
So when we look at making shoes
we have to
a basic foundation of righteousness where we are worshiping Allah.
Before we go to things, which are beyond that,
before we leave this country and go somewhere else to do something,
are we trying to change the world, and we haven't changed our account.
This is a trip I've taken
to get us very busy and concerned about all of the politics of the Muslim world. And we should be a leader with a disbeliever, and all these things. So we can scream, and South and
all these things.
It's really easy to meet this guy.
But after that,
after we've screamed and shouted and paraded and
we have established a life of worship ourselves in our own locality,
which is not allowed to ask us about on the Day of Judgment,
to ask you
about whether the philosopher was established or not.
To ask you, whether you would argue, to establish a life of worship or not.
So we have to begin with ourselves.
Our acts of worship has to be which actually have an effect on ourselves.
We have to go beyond zero.
We have to make Islam real in our lives. We have to live according to the Spirit, not only with the spirit of Islam,
we make it real and I individual life
and in our family,
how we deal with our lives and our children.
And we look at the environment around us.
Because we have to go with the things that are most directly related to us. We look at the environment around us.
We don't have Islamic schools.
We don't have Islamic institutions.
The key for us, is the establishment of those institutions, establishment of a community and Islamic community here where we are.
This is number one
for us to focus on other parts of the world, and we have not fulfilled our responsibility here. Our children are going to non Muslim schools.
Kneel indoctrinated with Cooper
That we are raising the banner.
We movement in the world.
We have not fulfilled our responsibility. our priorities are upside down.
We have put the cart before the horse.
This is the reality.
to establish Islam
There are enough Muslims here. There's enough knowledge, enough technology,
wealth, to establish communities.
But we have not made this a priority.
And this is where we have failed.
And this is wrong has made us
for the curse of a lot.
I've made us slip up in our ranks. Because we're all concerned about both
issues beyond our shores beyond the environment but our community. We're so concerned about external issues with all the different opinions of this one and that one in this movie.
Up, all of us, because we all have different opinions.
And we have not established Muslim schools that we have focused on those priorities,
energies and through that, you will find our ranks come together strong, because it takes sacrifice. It requires real sacrifice from us to establish the community here.
It doesn't take any sacrifice to raise
the bar for this.
Easy to make these
difficult to establish this
to make the necessary sacrifices to make Islam a reality here. And Zach, in fact, is a priority.
It must be in accordance with knowledge. I'm not saying that.
You don't need to know. What is the correct way to worship or not? Who is allowed? What is Islam? Of course, you have to know? Because how can you set up an institution to educate them about what we don't know.
So that goes without saying, but having
understood those basic
aspects of Islam, then we have to apply it. We apply it in the communities around us, it means that brothers and sisters have to educate themselves, they have to gain the necessary skills to build a community

no matter how they justify the webinar, I've been working and I've been paying so much to kick them out of my income years now I want to get back my life.
Okay, if this is your philosophy, then what you should do is you
need to go out of your salary for the last five years that you've been working and that
took out of the job but then you don't have any right after that.
That nobody's gonna do that they just want the general justification, you know, it's my right.
So they don't educate themselves, about the kind of skills the society is offered
for education throughout the both the school and you know, to various levels. But people don't take advantage of that if they want you know, we go to universities or kidnap
women, women teachers,
stay at home asleep in bed, the government for my sustenance.
When people came to come and ask permission to bed, forbade them.
Nadine is simple.
Levels need to know that taking the goal of begging, and it is simple. Unless
you are truly
interpretable, in the sense that you are a cripple, or you have some inability, or you lost your job, absolutely know what I mean. You have to have very clear justification, not the one that you give me. Or you give other people
the justification before
that you have the physical capability to go out and work or you're not working.
You're not being productive. You're not a part of the solution. You're a part of the problem.
A problem with your children inherits from you grew up with that mentality. And we will have generations of those who are just willing to take the take from the government.
And we will not do that will not produce anything. And Muslims will be scorned in the society will be known for our laziness
and everything else that comes with
not being able to present Islam to the communities at large. Because we don't represent Islam. We have bad examples
of discouraging people who wants to know about Islam, because we are the worst of examples.
When we were supposed to be the best. We are the worst.
So my dear brother,
unfortunately, time for the sisters, the time, which was allotted is supposed to have been until 430 has been cut short.
The original schedule on the program was until 430.
Until 430, central
time has run out, I know you have some questions, and
I've run middle classes.
So I just have to say the
evening in the finals, hopefully we can get into the questions in Sunday, and I'm sorry about this. But again, just in closing, I just like to say,
wrapped up. And I've been told we do have some minutes a person can get up from
weapon here, I just like to say that.
I try it
after the second order.
Number one is the establishment of Islam, in ourselves, in our families and in our communities.
Having established Islam, then duty to convey the message of Islam, to learn the language that is
to convey, to go around
without establishing ourselves who will not be very effective and convenient. That doesn't mean that simply because we haven't established it, they don't strive to convey because the requirements to convey Islam is something which is the duty of each and every Muslim.
Every Muslim is obliged to convey the word of a lot of those around
us in the Bible.
There are commanded to call to invite people to Islam. And
in order to remove the boats that we might have in our minds that were incapable of coming to Florida for the experts, the scholars essentially said that it reminded me whether I
convey whatever you have to me, even if it is only one person.
So the obligation
to feel that this is an obligation. Because if we didn't fulfill that obligation, then we fall under the curse of Allah.
Because for the sin of hiding the knowledge,
hiding knowledge of the way to salvation, this is a major lesson about
the middle of you know, well nominally you know,
we allowed to
reveal the clear messages and guidance in the book
such as, by Allah and curse, by
and those who hide the word of Allah for mankind.
Every day we come in contact with the non non believers around us, but we are silent. We have opportunity to express to inform, to convey the word and we don't, when we are
inviting people to plan is a day to day responsibility, which none of us is excused from
is trying to clear and in the few minutes remaining will try to answer quickly a couple of questions. I just like to say one point, before we go into the question, there was a particular question which are cut off last night and in explaining I will do a judgement,
some massage from what I read and understood versus regarding a man and a woman in marriage.
If a man does not mean things right, she has the right to refuse him in
I spoke about last night, the opinion of some styles.
However, according to our other scholars,
this opinion is a minority opinion. And the majority opinion is that
the marriage is that the man has the right is right, however.
And they reiterate, if a man does not maintain his rights, she has the right to seek divorce.
If the man does not maintain
the right to keep the work, she has chosen not to, chosen to remain with him.
She now accepting that circumstance, for not refusing in
service, like the correct platform,
allow for the lecture on the priorities of Muslim where our priorities as Muslims are,
I have a few announcements that I'm going to make. And while while I do that, often the questions that we have here, in the short time that's left, the most important one is there's a little boy who calls himself Mohammed is being held up at the end of the table, has lost his mother and father. They're known to him as mama and Baba.
Anybody can see him or knows who he belongs to. Another announcement is the better bad back, or I don't know how to pronounce it, maybe babe back? Ba Ba K. Your wife is not well, would you please meet her where you met her yesterday. And just one other announcement that sort of relates to that.
Although we would like to help as much as possible, we did have a number of requests, it is not possible to announce all the personal messages from the husbands and wives and their families in the matter of the talks last night and such as this one I just mentioned, legacies accepted. So as far as making arrangements with your wife, your families, would you please make these arrangements prior to the talks this evening?
as to where and when you will meet? And because those things, of course, any type of emergency situations will be announced.
Okay, the first question
that has crept in, if you draw is an obligation on us?
How can it be allowed for us to set up a community in
is an obligation and if we are incapable of practicing Islam, as we are not about establishing a flower and conveying the word of Allah to the people on the planet? This is what justifies our stay here. If we're not about that, then we should make it. But then again, there are some people who have no means
they don't have the economic means to get out of this country. So what do they do? Do they just jump up and down for collateral?
Is that the other option for them? No, they have to make
that situation here, make it as Islamic as they can, in order to protect their families that eventually they may be able to raise enough. You know, economic means to get out of their family and go for the summer grants
is an obligation
However, if people are involved in conveying the word of Allah, then that is justification for faith.
about establishing Islam, here,
conveying that word, to the people of Islam, not an obligation on them. There's an obligation and those who are living the life
who are not practicing Islam properly, their children are going to non Muslim school, that's okay. They don't care. It doesn't matter. It is logic on them.
Because they're not able to practice Islam properly. And we're not trying to do anything about
severen sin for the year that girls were involved in trying to establish community in order to convey the word of a lot of those around them justified in remaining here, and that should be the priority
for some people
when promoting the notion of kalapa and advocating the downfall of the Muslim leaders, they're saying that they're the ones actually promoting the fundamentals.
Because one of our attributes is that he is the lawgiver.
And the ruler
and the ruler Do not judge by what allies reveal. And their groups say that we're actually in reality promoting our aid and our data. And not just
the idea of promoting the setting up of Islamic law. Of course, this is an aspect of Fauci
which none of us in the process of learning Islam and teaching it can deny, or should ignore, or ever refuse spoke of his priority.
at this point in time do
anything which will produce
no matter what we do here, we cannot produce.
The only way that we need the apart from the tougher is to go to the Muslim lands, which are somewhere closer to the establishment of the law, and those that are
not here standing here.
Moving here, we cannot. So it is empty, empty words,
if we are keeping it as a private by educational policy, and when we're educating people with this type of understanding the whole scheme of things, we educate them sign that it doesn't become the broker.
That either a bad rap, or the unity of worship can only be
done, if we established enough.
Because there were many cases of the practice
and in certain aspects of prophethood. When he was
are we saying that fella was not fulfilling.
He is in concept. And in practice,
principle of early for the group,
to change what I hand when we are
trying to change with our hands when we are unable
to change what we can, that we can do here and now we can make changes in the society, we can make real changes in the society, we can have an impact on the society, we can convey the world, the word of Allah, to the people of the society, if we focus on the establishment of Islam, within our tribe, and in our communities, that we can change and this is what I like to ask us about what we didn't change when we could change not what we couldn't change that we didn't focus on
to the hobbyist when the whole of mankind was taken from Adam has learned
Am I not sure not enough to get up become one on this? The question is was the presence of allow high witness visually, we can get into that.
Vision normally is associated with eyes.
