Let me ask you guys a question.
If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what do you say when I say Sallallahu autosen SallAllahu I never be stingy to send Salawat upon and to be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if the Prophet alayhi salatu salam lived in America. Which city do you think he would live in?
Which city? Philly New York
nice weather California. No. They are stuck for Allah not to New York. Okay.
Okay, okay, okay, let me ask you this.
If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam drove a car in 2018 What kind of car do you think you would drive?
Corolla Corolla Suna. MashAllah Camry Corolla? What do you think would drive?
Why? Okay, okay, okay.
If the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was with us right now and 2018 Do you think he would have social media?
Why do you say no and that you all have social media?
That means you think social media is haram. So if you have it, why do you think you wouldn't have it?
Let me tell you something. Let me tell you something. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam in his day and age, he was ahead of the times, by the way, he utilized the mediums and the forms of communication that were available to him. He used these platforms to spread His power. He used poetry use Mail, these were all things that were not necessarily a part of the Sunday but he utilized in his example, right. The problem is when I asked you these questions, we cannot contextualize the Sunnah in our day and age. For us, the Sunnah is something that happened 1400 years ago it's not something that's still happening today in our lives. How would the prophets Allah send them live? What would his
example be like? If the Prophet said I've owned a house in this day and age what kind of home sorry nevermind house what kind of home do you think he would live in?
What do you live in an apartment?
What do you have a townhouse
What do you live it? What do you live in the projects?
What do you live in government housing? No.
What do you have servants?
What do you have Butler's What do you have? No.
So I tell you this I asked you these questions for you to start thinking about what it would be like because if the Prophet sallallahu sallam was with us, today's pan Allah, how many of us how many of us would still even be believers, maybe we'd be on the other side fighting against him. You never know. So we need to start conceptualizing the life the process that we used to live in our day and age because the Sunnah is for all times. The Sunnah is from that time until the end of time. So I'm going to share this last poem with you. There's a new poem it's not on YouTube is nowhere but you know, you guys are like, you're my homie. So I'm gonna I'm gonna share this with you in sha Allah.
This poem is called prophet amongst us
if you're not careful,
the media will have you hating the people who are oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.
The fact that Islam gets so much press today is like a curse and a blessing. A blessing because nobody can say on the Day of Judgment that they didn't hear this message and a curse because we were the ones who were supposed to be delivering it to the masses.
And here we are
trying to sell God to a world that is God lists. content with chasing the pursuit of happiness and arms instead, burying little baby girls in these shallow graves of Instagram fame, selling breasts and thighs like KFC we have lost all shame.
Today, you cannot even call a morality by name. The idols of yesterday have been replaced by the American Idols of today. And we can comfortably say that tribalism and racism are here to stay. A black man is still considered less than a white man on any given day in every single way. We have lost our way gone astray with so many freedoms that we have locked in a cage for this dunya has no friends, only one night stands and we keep getting screwed chasing mirages in the sand and there is no way out no control, alt delete, no disconnecting from this matrix. It is stuck on repeat, and repeat and repeat and repeat. And repeat no more books of guidance no more messengers to meet no
more ye from this
skies our connection is so weak and we've been given everything that we need to be convinced, but it's so hard to fight ignorance when Abu Jahaz still exists because I'm tired of feeling different tired of apologizing for what I didn't do tired of trying to explain the truth to buffoons who just want to tie me in a noose, I'm tired
of feeling tired.
Knowing that I could be doing so much more.
But I'm a coward and a sinner. And I don't even know if I deserve to even really have my last name.
Trying to uphold the principles of a man whom the angels praised and sometimes I wonder, if my prophet were alive today. With this world we see today still be the exact same way sallallahu alayhi wa salam, May Allah send him blessings and peace? Because if our Prophet had a passport, I wonder what would be his nationality? Would he be a Saudi? Would they call him a Wahhabi? Would he enjoy the luxuries of all these royal families? The man who used to sleep on a bed of palm leaves when he lived inside a mansion with servants at his feet. And I wonder what would be his stance on foreign policy? Could he eat knowing how many children die from poverty and invading armies dropping bombs
discriminately harming innocent bombs killing for fun the man who taught us that this OMA was one
would he educate and eradicate ignorance with his tongue? Or pick up a gun to any one who said that God was not one? SallAllahu I know he was selling them. But tell me how could this be the man who was sent as rock metal alameen and he couldn't even read not a leaf, lamb or meme yet he would change the hearts of a generation. And every one that would proceed taught us that every life was sacred, and to have respect for humanity because we were all created from a single clot and seed and I could see him at the UN addressing all the other nations warning them of global warming and religious innovations. CNN would ask for an interview, his words would be short and sweet, but they
would still find ways to misinterpret and demonize him on TV. Oh, he must be crazy, or suffering from some kind of insanity to think the rich shouldn't oppress the poor, or take advantage of the weak and what do you mean when you say that all men are the same except in piety? This is blasphemy. We've been living this way for so many centuries, they would charge a bucket as an accomplice of man would be entrapped, but permanent solitary confinement and give it accessory after the fact Khalid bin will be will be labeled a menace to society and blouse face will be on the front of every black lives matter. See, I pray for humanity because we are praying for humanity and the past they killed
prophets took yes head off with a sword. Now they killed for profits justifying their Unholy War spreading blood like gospel now more than ever before. It feels like we need a prophet to guide us through the eye of the storm. But if we did,
I would request on Facebook to be his friend.
Or send him a DM on Instagram just to say, Hey,
I'm a big fan.
You may not know me, but I've read all about you and
you really helped me change my life.
And I don't know how to thank you.
And even though I never met you,
I still believe in you.
I'm a follower of you.
And I follow you on Twitter too.
And when I grow up,
I want to be just like you.
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
May Allah reunite us all with you. I mean, it's not gonna go ahead and thank you very much. I said Mr. Aiken, rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
