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

Good

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

morning.

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

To do more pseudo

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

he was, he was suddenly

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

a mother.

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

He didn't carry

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

him in a shape on it.

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

Yeah.

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

It took him off Tacoma how to party, one on

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

one to Muslim or my brothers and sisters in Islam. It is the day of Friday. And every single Friday we get together, whether we like it or not. This is a command of Allah subhanho wa Taala that comes upon us. One that we must fulfill one that we come together and unite. Like we said, whether we like it or not, we must unite at least once a week. And this is from the wisdom and hikmah philosophy panel, what's our

00:01:38--> 00:01:50

today's topic will be revolving around the issues that we face, both here in Canada, as well as abroad around the world.

00:01:52--> 00:02:48

And we see that the world is changing. Every single day The world is changing. We wake up in the morning at 6am and open the news. Or we come home from work at 6pm and open the TV and see the news. always sit in our car and open the radio or you get to work and you open your desktop. Or you just simply look at your phone and realize that even on social media platforms, you're getting the news, and the news is changing every single day. There's new things happening in the news. Sadly, 90 to 95% of it is negative. And we notice that even more so today, the finger is being pointed at you and I at Muslims, things that are being done under the banner of Islam, which we will prove today and

00:02:48--> 00:03:10

learn that these are not associated to Islam. Before we move forward, I'd like to remind you that my footballs are usually very simple, very straightforward. We will take one Heidi's in the first half of the football. And we will take actually we'll take one verse in the first half, and he had eaten in the second part of the football.

00:03:11--> 00:03:21

Two things that we focus on. Firstly, we draw our attention to the fact that also kind of water either sent

00:03:22--> 00:03:27

a messenger to us and this messenger was on a mission.

00:03:28--> 00:03:53

It wasn't Mission Impossible. It was mission impossible mission for him a mission for his companions, a mission for you and i i'm also kind of water Hannah told the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very clearly, very simply, he says wamba Sunnah

00:04:10--> 00:04:23

we have not sent you meaning he has not sent prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, except that he is a Mercy Mercy upon whom, upon what

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

wama

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

me enemy, that he is a mercy upon all of mankind. All of the humans, of the jinn, all of this earth, and the heavens and the skies and the trees and the plants and the animals and the insects and the homes and everything that we see everything within and everything without. That was the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we see things happening around the world today.

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

For example, what's happened in Australia or Sydney to be more exact. What's happened in Pakistan, the shower,

00:05:10--> 00:05:18

killing of innocent people, murdering innocent children under the so called banner of Islam.

00:05:19--> 00:05:41

Now, one, this is not Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as an example to you and I, when he was on the battlefield, and we are not on the battlefield, clearly, we are not sitting on the battlefield. The prophets of Allah, he was Salam commanded his companions of the above our animal,

00:05:42--> 00:06:15

that when they were in the midst of a battle, entering a village, or a town or a city on the battlefield, not like we see today in Syria, or in Iraq, in different parts of the world where people are invading towns and villages without being on the battlefield, they themselves think they're on a battlefield that there's no battle. In a battle, you need to have two sides, people who are fighting and people who are being fought, right, and both of them are fighting each other.

00:06:16--> 00:06:50

And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he commanded the companions to enter upon the battlefield and to go and invade certain lens. He told them very exact, precise descriptions of how to respect the lens they were entering respect, respect on the battlefield. What does this mean? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the companions, when they entered, they should not harm the children,

00:06:51--> 00:07:35

they should not harm the women, they should not harm the elderly. And it goes even beyond that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the companions to also respect those who are religious leaders, to also respect the religious places of worship, to respect the homes of the people to respect the trees, the plants, the flowers, the agriculture, the profits on among themselves, the companions, to respect the animals to respect the insects, and so on and so forth. And that's on the battlefield. That is on the battlefield in the middle of a war.

00:07:36--> 00:08:29

So today is the innocent children in a school. When we see innocent patients inside hospitals, when we see innocent people having a coffee in the morning inside of a cafe. That is not Islam. They are not being harmed. Because of Islam. They're being harmed because of ignorance of people or individuals. My brothers and sisters, if we were to hold on to this concept of harming innocent children, for example, in what happened in Pakistan rush hour, and say that this was something that needed to be done, because these are children of Army or military soldiers in generals and commanders, and they will grow up to fight people. And so therefore, we need to destroy them. This

00:08:29--> 00:09:19

is a false statement. Islam does not allow that. And if it was the case, that we were to harm people that were not spreading the deen and goodness, that half of you and I would not be here today. I myself would not be here today. If Islams policy was to go around from village to village and destroy people that did not enter Islam, or did not claim or state that they were Muslim. My mother and her family would have been killed long ago, if that was Islam. But Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. Today we see especially here in Canada, in North America, in the so called Western countries, a large number of population of Muslims who were not Muslim at birth,

00:09:20--> 00:09:45

or their parents were not Muslim, or their grandparents were not Muslim, but Islam through the messenger some a lot more. I'm a US senator. That came as my two lilyana mean rock metal and I mean, this is a mercy to all of mankind. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in a demon

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

wallet in Nova Scotia, that it is not upon you to guide those who you wish or you will or you love goodness for For verily we can try and try and we have tried and we continue to try it.

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

To spread Islam, to our neighbors, to our friends to our relatives, but it is only Islam that opens their hearts and allows them to enter this beautiful Deen my brothers and sisters being radical is not a part of this religion. And we will touch more upon that in the second half of this clip in sha Allah who probably have a stock fuel fossil fuel oil

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu

00:10:44--> 00:10:45

wa suddenly more

00:10:47--> 00:10:51

heavy you know heavy Mohammed in a photo salatu wa.

00:10:53--> 00:11:05

As we mentioned in the first half of this script, we will cover one verse and one idea even though we mentioned a few supportive evidences, we still hold on to the first verse which is will not

00:11:07--> 00:11:41

mean that our last panel which is at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a mercy to all of mankind. In the second part of this, we will focus on the fact that our neighbors are those that we must look after, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a beautiful Howdy, howdy, that actually begins very similar to a number of other Hadees, a number of other statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he says very beautifully law, you have no idea

00:11:42--> 00:12:07

that you will not fully and truly believe as in or meaning that you're a man will not be 100% complete, you will not fulfill your email, accept and unless you do a number of things. And in one of the statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, you know, adequan had, you claim

00:12:08--> 00:12:18

that you will not fully complete your mind and be a believer in the loss of handle which are either fully and wholly accept that you are

00:12:19--> 00:12:39

good, or respectful, or fulfill the rights of your neighbor, the rights that our neighbors have upon us. But let's step back and look at who our neighbors really are. In a country where the population is 36 to 38 million.

00:12:40--> 00:12:54

And the Muslims from amongst that 36 to 38 million makeup one to 1.2 million. Therefore, almost every single one of us have neighbors, at least one that is non Muslim.

00:12:56--> 00:13:04

And when you do the math, you realize that your neighbor in front of you, behind you to the right and to the left is most likely non Muslim.

00:13:05--> 00:13:56

And so therefore, what does it mean to fulfill the rights of our neighbor that they have upon us as Muslims living in a country where they are most likely non Muslim? And we ourselves claim that Islam has come as rough mentally, I mean, with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So do we harm our neighbors? Do we hurt our neighbors? How do we spread the message of Islam to our neighbors? It is winter. A simple example. Let's begin by shoveling the snow and cleaning the car of our neighbor when we get up at fudger for the brothers, who wake up and go to the mustard for photo and that's every single one of us correct. Every single one of us wakes up and we dig our own car out. And we

00:13:56--> 00:14:22

saw that the snow came down today. I'm pretty sure from now on it's going to come even more. So we clean the snow of our car and around the car of the neighbor. We clean the walkway of the neighbor we take their garbage out or we put the garbage in the garbage bag. When a raccoon comes in the summer and digs the garbage out of the bag. We go and we put the garbage of the neighbor back in the bag neatly and nicely.

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

One day, one day.

00:14:27--> 00:14:45

Our child, our spouse, maybe even our own self will be sick and in the hospital. And we will be in the hospital worrying about our family that's at home. They don't have food to eat. There's no one there to cook for them. How are we going to babysit the children

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

and your neighbor who is a non Muslim will look after your family because you took the snow away from their car. You put their garbage in the garbage bag us

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

Send an example to them in every aspect of your life, that the prophets of the law

00:15:06--> 00:15:13

was sent for no other reason, except to spread goodness upon this earth,

00:15:14--> 00:15:41

to spread goodness in the worship of a loss of cannibal, which are higher, and that is the message of Islam. That is a message that we give to others. Let's take a few examples of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we say, you know, our neighbors are non Muslim, it was very easy at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, all of their neighbors were Muslim, correct? Wrong, who are the neighbors of the Muslims in Medina at that time, during the life of the prophet SAW.

00:15:43--> 00:15:50

Right beside them was the marketplace to the opposite side of the market, was the Jewish community.

00:15:51--> 00:16:38

And you also saw that there were Christians there. And they were mushrikeen. But there was a large Jewish community that lived side by side with the Muslims in Medina, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And his companions on the Obama ran home in the morning, where did they go, they got up, they did their, their actions, their, you know, solid, and so on and so forth. And they went to the marketplace to trade with, with the Muslims, yes, but also with the non Muslims to live simultaneously on this earth, spreading goodness, even in your business transactions with your neighbors, showing them a beautiful example of who you are in your worship and very bad to have a

00:16:38--> 00:16:51

loss of what to add another example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out of respect, when a funeral procession was passing by, he would stand up out of respect, even though they weren't Muslim.

00:16:52--> 00:17:21

And you can imagine what's going through the mind of the Prophet Mohammed from Botswana, he was telling him at that point in time, that this is a person who's going to the cemetery to be buried, who he tried hard to put Islam into their hearts. But he left that up to a law, the question that you and I should be asking each other, what am I doing for my neighbor? Am I trying to put his thumb in the household of my neighbor as well?

00:17:22--> 00:17:37

How many times do we see a funeral procession going by with the black hearse and the cars and everyone's following, and we don't even think twice, that I could be questioned and answered on the Day of Judgment, because of that person.

00:17:38--> 00:18:23

That might be someone who, in the end, I am questioned about why didn't I spread Islam to that person's household. And today, and handed in de la has blessed us not only with a number of non Muslim neighbors to spread Islam towards, but with social media, to use social media in ways that is positive, to take the dean and simply in spreading good words, not by backbiting and bashing others that say negative things online, rather to say something good, even when they say something bad about you to respond with something good and harmonious, so that life on this earth is spread through goodness shown to us through the method, the method of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:18:23--> 00:18:41

sallam, we see that also, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his name is being mentioned recent Peace and blessings upon him. We also see that when we meet each other and reach each other as Muslims, we say, a center or at a Kumara

00:18:42--> 00:18:49

Barakatuh, we wish goodness upon each other. And sadly, today, we notice a lot of Muslims mumble a response back and say,

00:18:52--> 00:18:55

right, because we're not happy with one another.

00:18:56--> 00:19:09

But that is what ties in everything going back to my initial statement, at the very beginning of this quote, well, that whether we like it or not, what commands us to become united on Friday.

00:19:10--> 00:19:20

And that is the wisdom of a boss handle. Watch. Lastly, my brothers and sisters, I want to remind each and every one of us

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

that it is our responsibility. As parents, especially as teachers and educators, we're in a school to teach and talk to our children about the issues that are happening around the world. Why should we do this? We should do it because whether we like it or not, our children face pressures from other students at schools. Alhamdulillah This is an Islamic school, but for many people, their children do not go to established schools and they go to schools where people pick on them, where their own friends and sometimes even teachers pick on them and say Oh, look at what your religion This is what your parents teach you to do. Right? Is this what you're saying?

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

Do you go to the mosque five times a day to bow down and then to learn how to be radical, rather, we should be teaching our children what Islam, preaches and promotes. As we learned today, two very simple things that I like to do, as I said, very simple, one Hadith and one verse, take it to your families, take it to your relatives, take it to your spouse, who's not here, take it to your husband, who doesn't give you his, you know, explanation or his, you know, meaning or translation we could say of the football when he comes home from work, teach it to your children, show them that Islam is a religion of peace. Islam is one that promotes unity. Lastly, brothers and sisters, never

00:20:46--> 00:21:37

forget that amongst our Deen, there is a divide, there is a ruling a, a sort of obligation that we must fulfill. And that is that the safety of the entire Ummah, or a nation, the community of group is far more important than the safety and security of one single person. So if you know from amongst your your children know people who are thinking to become radical or go abroad and do things that is not in accordance with the Shetty app, then it is our responsibility not only as Canadians, but also our responsibility as Muslims that we safeguard the safety of our own man here living in this society for the greater good, meaning one or two or 10 or 15. People have been mentioned in the

00:21:37--> 00:21:44

media in the news that they've gone abroad and fought and done things under the so called banner of Islam.

00:21:45--> 00:22:24

And because of their actions, we now we are facing a lot of immigration difficulties. We are facing a lot of hardships within our communities, and a lot of backlash has come our way. And therefore it is our responsibility as Muslims to report whether to your emails or to your Muslim communities, or to the legal authorities in the countries like the police and so on, that a person is thinking to do something negative and radical does not come a local failure and we send decent blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a loss accountable to Allah and His messengers and his angels do as mentioned in

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

it cutter. We have some Dona Ana Debbie. Yeah.

00:22:29--> 00:22:34

He was sending just Lima one last Sunday, we're sending Mubarak out so you know, whatever, you know, Mohammed

00:22:36--> 00:23:10

was the last panel dialytic sent Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the last and final messenger We ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to make it easy for the Muslims in this country in all the different countries and places on earth to live as people who are preaching and promoting goodness as well as having the ability and the freedom to worship the loss of cannabinoids in the ways that he wills we ask for lots of compliments or having to grant the cure to those who are sick from amongst us, as well as those of our family members and relatives. They ask Allah Subhana Allah to alleviate the pains and the difficulties upon the families of the children and the

00:23:10--> 00:23:21

sick and the ill and those who are murdered and killed in different parts of the world. We ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to generally have mercy upon us. I mean, y'all know that. I mean, I know the law, our human robot in the body.

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