As to what follows my beloved brothers and sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
It is again a great privilege to be with you here today
in Melbourne and to be Down Under. And we are also down on the on the other side of the world. And
we have a unity between us. We have a similarity in climate, we have a similarity to a certain extent in our experiences. And the more you travel amongst Muslims, is the more you find the closeness that we have, and not really the differences that really differences amongst people are not the greatest issue. But there are more things that unite us and combine us then there are things that separate us. And so we pray that Allah azza wa jal would bless us, and would unite our ranks, would give us that ability to have one SFX that we would be one united oma
following our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah
recently, in the month of December, I had the opportunity to visit Malaysia to visit Singapore, and to be with the Muslims in that part of the world. And I was pleasantly surprised to find when I went there to see faces of the people who I have lived with for the last 10 years in Cape Town. Cape Town is the home of the cape Malays. And it is reported in the 17th century that the Dutch colonial forces brought political prisoners and slaves to the cape. And they form the first Muslim community in the southern hemisphere. They're in South Africa. And they had a training experience, because they came in bondage.
And not only from Malaysia, from Java, but also from Sri Lanka from East Africa, to make up this new community, they're in South Africa. And I was pleasantly surprised to see the faces It was as though I was in Cape Town when I was seeing the faces of the people. But their experience was not the same.
The people in the cape had suffered. They were taken away from their homes, they were stripped from their ancestral lands, their culture was taken away. They had to struggle just to maintain their faith. And it is reported that there were people amongst the political prisoners and slaves in the cape, who would get up in the middle of the night in chains, and pray to Allah subhanaw taala that he would bless them to maintain their faith and to pass it on to the generations we've come after them.
This was really important to me, because my people as well in the Americas were taken as political prisoners as slaves from the western coast of Africa, and came into the Americas. And now we have documented proof that over 30% of the political prisoners and slaves who were taken into the Americas were Muslims. We have documented evidence of alarma of scholars who were taken in chains who maintain their faith. And now, books are coming out whole copies of the Quran written for memory by the slaves.
discussions of the other ma the reseller of Abby's ADAL kadowaki, the great Maliki fucky written from the memory of a person in bondage and a discussion about this, how this and how this, this is affected him in his condition of bondage. Also in the island of Jamaica, they found a document that is called Elva Thea calm.
And this was the car called the the slaves to revolt, that they should stand up against the colonial forces, they should throw off the chains. And now it is being connected to a document written by a great scholar in West Africa. Check with man Dan fodio Rahim Allah, who wrote watseka illa, Allah Sudan, who wrote this, his famous document, which was there.
It was the call to struggle for the people of the Sudan, meaning not only present Sudan, but also West Africa as well. And so
they they resist it. They resisted on the shore, they resisted.
In the ocean, the Middle Passage, they resisted in the Americas, slave revolts are documented in Suriname, South America, in in Jamaica,
in Haiti. And you'll be surprised to know what the recent recent Haitian crisis that went on with the earthquake, that the revolt of Tucson lava there in Haiti, it was begun by Muslims, makan del Bookman, these were great what they call Malibu medabots, who came from West Africa. They were scholars, and they led successful revolts, organize the people, and then to such Lovato came along with the skills of a general and he was able to unite the whole of the island. And they threw off the French, and it was the first successful rebellion against colonial rule in the Americas. And they suffered up until today. And that is part of the reason why
when the earthquake struck, that the sanctions that had been applied to them, they were not able to resist, their houses fell down. And I want to read to you have a document that has been unrest. This is a document from the 19th century, written by a scholar of Islam, in the West Indies in Jamaica, a person who is in slavery. And this is something that Muslims did not know about. We take our religion for granted. We feel that because we blessed our families have the deen we think it'll always be with us. We think that because we come from a certain group, it'll always stay. But this is the words of a person by the name of Abu Bakr Siddiq. And he writes My name is Abu Bakr Siddiq.
Born in Timbuktu, which is a great center of knowledge and brought up in Jenny. I acquired the knowledge of the court and in the town of Guna, in which there are many teachers for young people. My father's name is cada Musa Sharif. Some of Goonies people were obliged to fly to Kong and on that very day, they made me captive. As soon as I was made prisoner, they stripped me and tied me with a court and gave me a heavy load to carry and led me into the country of boon Dooku from dense to the town of Kumasi, where the Ashanti rains.
Then it goes on.
It said we there they sold me to the Christians in that town. We were three months at sea, before we arrived in Jamaica, which was the beginning of bondage, I have none to thank but those that brought me here, but but praise be to Allah who has everything in his power to do as he thinks good, and no man can remove whatever burden he chooses to put on us. As he said, Allah subhanaw taala nothing shall fall on us, except what he shall ordain. He is our Lord, and that all that believe in him put their trust in Him. My parents religion is Islam. They are all circumcised and their devotions are five times a day. They fast in the month of Ramadan. They give tribute according to the law. They
can marry up to four wives, but the fifth is an abomination to them. They fight for their religion, they travel to the ages. They don't eat any meat except what they themselves kill. They do not drink wine nor spirits as it is held an abomination to do so. They do not associate with any worship. They do not associate partners with God, or worship idols or profane the Lord's name or do dishonor
To the parents, or commit murder, or be a false false witness, or a covetous, proud or boastful for such false or abomination unto my religion, they are particularly careful. Now look what the person is saying now in slavery said they are particularly careful in the education of their children and in their behavior, but I am lost to all these advantages. Since my bondage, I am become corrupt. And I now conclude by begging the Almighty God to lead me into the path that is proper for me, for he alone knows the secrets of my heart. And what I am in need of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Kingston, Jamaica, September 20 1834.
And so the pain of slavery,
mother separated from father language taken away, if you fast in Ramadan, if they see you fasting, they will punish you. If you read the Quran, or if you speak Arabic, they will they will beat you to death in front of the other slaves. Because of this,
a generation went by, and Islam was for the most part lost. And it was only just a memory.
But the two of these people were suffering, praying for their children,
the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. That now, decades later, hundreds of years later, Islam is the fastest growing religion still in this land. The children, the descendants of those who suffered are coming back into the faith. Now what was different for me with the two experiences is that on one hand, the people in the West and the Americans lost the faith. And now they're returning. But the people in the cape, although they suffered in slavery, apartheid, colonial oppression, they were able to keep the net, they kept their chain of knowledge, right up until today.
And the great scholars check user from akasa great scholars developed
addresses, talk to court, and even though they were suffering, and through this, now in Cape Town, there are over 150 machines. And one of the traditions that they had something which they used to do after they finished reading this salaat they used to read certain verses. And I wondered about these verses and it took me a period of time traveling and reflecting upon them to realize how deep it was that the that these verses they were reading, how important it was. And I think that we should reflect upon this ourselves
in certain units, versus 62 and verse 63. The slaves, the political prisoners in bondage, they would constantly read these verses that gave them strength, they turn to Allah azza wa jal ooh Billahi min ash shaytaan the regime Allah in the only a lot less hopeful la him while our homie as unknown alladhina amanu What can we attack on La homos bush la fille? hayata dunya wolfville Akira lattre de la de Cali Mattila. Delica, who will fosun Rd. These verses say behold, verily on the friends of Allah, there is no fear,
nor shall de greve.
Those who believe and constantly guard against evil. For them there are glad tidings in the life of this world and in the hereafter.
No change can there be in the words of Allah. And this is indeed the supreme triumph. So in these verses that tells us a lot in the Olia Allah. Now how often are they him while at home, yes or no.
And the scholars tell us that this now it is dealing with the present and the future and the past. Just in this simple verse. When it says laflin la him, this refers to there is nothing for them to be afraid of now and in the future. If you are of the Friends of our law, there is nothing to fear while our home has anyone. And it's nothing to be sad about in the past.
So there's nothing to cry about. And Muslims today we have to stop crying and wallowing around
in the valley of despair
and cry about our future. You
have to deal with him cry about our future.
cry about our situation.
We have to stop this.
And we have to
raise ourselves up
to deal with our situation.
Like how often are they him while at home? Yes, I know.
There is nothing for them to fear in the life of this world now or in the future. And there is nothing for them to be sad about.
When it speaks about only Allah.
Who does it speak about? It says, not a special category of people.
Not a special group that has a special uniform on or a special name. Allah azza wa jal says alladhina amanu. What can we attack?
The description of the friends of Allah are those who believe
and they have Taqwa. So two qualities, we need to reflect on Eman and taqwa.
These are the qualities of the Olia.
anybody, any Muslim can be described in this anybody can fall under the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala
and fall into the category category of Olia who have left over now lay him What are homea has known, they have nothing to be afraid of. They have nothing to be sad about. It is a win win situation for them.
And so when we look at this and are in our present situation,
we need to constantly say Alhamdulillah
because we are not going through necessarily the suffering, that those who came before us went through. And I reflect upon this with people who would get up in the middle of night in chains and pray to Allah subhanaw taala to relieve them of their situation, hold on to their faith, they are being beaten to death, and they will still maintain their faith. And Muslims have done this and looking at different points in history to see what Muslims have done. We take our religion for granted. Recently we ran across a fatwa of a great scholar from North Africa, the shack boo Juma
Warren and he made a fatwa for the Muslims of Al Andalus. And this was in 1504. This is after the fall of Granada.
And he made a factual for these people who are now known as moriscos. And the moriscos were Muslims who had to hide their identity. They had to because of the Inquisition, the Spanish Inquisition that was going on, they would take you in front of the Inquisitor.
And if you are not a Catholic, they will burn you at the stake. And that is a terrible way to die.
And then there were people who said okay, I'm a Catholic, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, whatever you want, I believe, but they still follow them.
And this situation was so was so trying for these people. They could not display any Islam and it is reported that there were people who, who actually took a bath on Thursday night.
He just took a bath is a Catholic. He took a bath on Thursday night and they burned him at the stake. Why is that? Because they thought he was making the whistle of Juma.
So the shack made a fatwa.
And he said, I know that you cannot show your faith. You have testified that you are Catholics now. But you have to hold on to your deen and in the spirit of amar ebonyi acid rhodiola Juan and Ali Asad. The time of the prophet SAW Selim we remember their story that they were being tortured in the early period tortured in a terrible way. And one time the Prophet peace be upon him can be next to them. And he said Subhan Allah Yasser, Mo into common agenda, have patience LDS in your place is in paradise. And sure enough, the mother of Amar Samia rhodiola one ha she was the first person to give her life for Islam.
Amar came to the presence of them one time and he said, I have destroyed myself.
So the Prophet peace be upon how did you destroy yourself? He said, I said Kelly Matsuoka.
I said the word of disbelief couldn't control myself. The Prophet peace be upon him said How is your heart? He said My heart was my inability man. I believed I was strong and faith in my heart.
Then the Prophet said then you are still on the path in words. And so what came out of this that the Mufti used for the malesko people who are hiding their identity is that even though you, you are told, or you have to testify that you are Catholics, if your heart is still on the faith,
then you're still Muslim.
Imagine this situation, we take it for granted.
We walk around as Muslims, we think there's some pressure on us because they look funny at us at the airport.
Imagine this situation that they're in the shack said to them.
I know your situation. You can't show anything. So if you want to make salaat you got to make will do. So walk along the street. Make your intention inside, tap the wall. That's Toyama.
You make a lot with your eyes, pray with your eyes. You want to give you as a cat, then give somebody a gift and make the intention of zakat.
You want to maintain yourself to maintain your deen but they force you to marry in a church.
And so you have to do it but in the middle of the night, then have Anika
they bury you in your desk, you may be buried
with the Trinity. But later on in the middle of the night, have your people make janazah for you.
And so we gave them a system of resistance, how they could maintain their faith. If they could not escape and make him better across the North Africa and into the Muslim world. He gave them a system by which they could maintain their faith and by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and the Lucien people now are entering a slum in Spain right now.
We take our religion for granted.
We take it
and we become stagnated. We become lazy and rd.
And the great scholars in looking at these two terms. The first one is taqwa.
The great scholars and looking at this said the taqwa is made up of alcohol for Raja. It is made up of fear and hope. And the other might have told us men Roger Shay and Paula who were men, hoffa, Shea and horrible men who
woman, Roger Oliver Fran, mile, ISRO for whom
they said to us, that who whoever hopes and something he are, he requests, he wants it. So he moves towards it. And if you are, if you fear something, then you run from it. So there's action involved in this, you're stimulated one way or the other. But whoever asked for forgiveness, and continues to do wrong, that person is diluted. That person person is in a state of deception. They are in an illusion.
And this is the situation that Muslims find themselves in, in many parts of the world. And the evil one was el de Bella is coming at us in a way that probably he never came to people before.
To make us feel satisfied with the life of this world satisfied with our religion. We strive to a certain extent, you will see Islamic movement. We will put on the clothes we will make the slogans we will make salaat and we will we will we will do what appears to be, you know our fundamentals of Islam and then we relax. And we say I'm over. We are the successful ones. We are felucca to Nigeria. We are the one who enter Paradise.
Then we start to relax we become stagnated. But the scholars have shown us that your taqwa stimulates you. If you fear Allah azza wa jal, you hope in his mercy. you strive for this consciousness, its action, you are involved in your action once you become stagnated.
Once you slow down and stop and feel that you made it, then you're deceived.
This is the delusion now that we need to consider when we take things for granted. Some people are fooled by their families. And we see it very often happen. They will say well, I come from a part of the world where there's Muslims. There's great my dresses, I don't have to study. I don't have to give sadaqa My mother used to give sadaqa so the earthquake happened in Haiti. So people are suffering. I don't have to give to her this. The United Nations will give to this
Why do I have to do anything to help the poor? The people are suffering in Gaza they are surrounded. But why do I have to they'll make it out. I have to deal with my own family. Because my father was a great struggler, my mother used to give sadaqa so we think because of our family,
that it is all right. But we are being diluted. Never forget the story of Noah alayhis salaam,
his own son turned against him. Look at the case of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, his father, his father was an idol maker turned against him, loot alayhis salaam his wife turned against him. And so your family, this is not enough. Your generation because you speak a certain language, you come from a certain part of the world, that is not enough now. We are being diluted and should be involved in consistent action.
Some people have good deeds and bad deeds, they think that their good deeds will be enough for them. They make estate for 100 times after Salatin fudger. And they think that because they've they've made the mistake far they count the things. They they they go to Mecca, and they count. Okay, now I'm in the masjid master Haram, in Mecca. That's 100,000 times. And then I'm praying a Jamaat prayer, that's time 27. And then I'm on Hajj, and they start multiplying things up. So I must have about 2 billion hacer net. So now I can go home, I can do what I want. I can swear, drink some alcohol fornicator. Because I got 2 billion hacer net.
So like my scale is going to be so heavy on one side.
That, you know, I can do what I want, because it's still not tipping up. He is being diluted.
He's being fooled. He thinks that he is successful. But the shade of yellow Bella has has scooped him up
and has taken him off the path.
they're even in a deepest situation. And this is something that we need to study, go over it over and over again, try to understand what is happening to us in this section. There are some people who study the books, and they know about deception.
They can tell you,
but they don't apply it to themselves. They will tell you all the verses, all the ideas, but they don't do it themselves. They just intellectually know it.
And they don't they forget that Allah says when he speaks to us about the soul, God Allah Harmon zakka will call the Hubba Mendoza, that the one who is successful is the one who purifies his soul. And the one who, who leaves his soul, that is the person who will be unsuccessful, and that is the person who will be defeated. And so it is action. It's not enough to say it.
Then we have another group that's even deeper than that.
We have another group
that you should not only say it, but you should do it.
And they talk about action. And they will do some of the things. But they don't apply it completely to their hearts. They leave their heart alone, they practice Islam on the outside and you will see them they will make solid first in line. They will fast in Ramadan, they will have the clothes of Islam, they will have the appearance. They claim to be the successful Muslims, but he's jealous. He's jealous of you. He has this evil spirit, he looks at you. And instead of trying to find you know, some some way to help you, he's trying to find out what's wrong with you, brother, your parents are too long. You be it
assistant is a little hair sticking out of your camera system. This is not right. And they will look for faults that you're doing.
And instead of giving you naseeha to support you, you find something wrong with your brother and your sister and you try to help them they will use it against you to try to bring you down.
This person is also diluted a person on the path who thinks that they they're 100% Muslim, but they are being diluted and a person who doesn't even look like them who may seem like a simple person. That person may be the one on the path. The real Olia is not necessarily the ones with the long thobes and the giant hats and turbans and, and all the things the real Olia is probably the person who's sweeping the mustard.
He's a simple person. You don't even know this person. You walk by him. But that's the person that gets up in the morning and cleans the masjid and makes the athon and wakes everybody up.
that is the person that Allah subhanaw taala loves, but we will not look at that person because we want the fame and the glory. Right, we want the hype. And so this is delusion.
And this state of delusion can actually reach movement people, it can actually reach people who are on the path who are striving and spending their time
learning about Islam.
There are other cases that Allah talk about, there are people who will spend their time they will spend their time studying and studying Islam. And they will study now instead of they will study the different details about grandma and tuck region truth and how to pronounce the court and they will read the Quran beautifully.
But they don't put it into practice. And the prophet SAW them said the time would come when people would read the court and in melodious tones, and it would not reach their house would not pass the throats.
And so by not passing their throats, it does not reach the house. And so this is a state of delusion.
It is a false construct a fantasy world. And this is what is being done to people now. The younger generation, they want to put them in a fantasy, they send them out in space, and they spend their day fighting aliens, or mutant creatures on earth.
Other people are in a fantasy world, and they think they're waiting for the malady to come. The Khalifa must be marching through down the road. They're waiting for something to come without doing something they can be diluted. Because they should this does not mean that you don't make your salaat
that you don't call to the good and forbid evil. Because you think the malady is coming. People said the same thing. 1000 years ago,
there were some people who call themselves muddy.
And some we're pretty sure about it. There's one person in the Sudan, Mohammed Ahmed, he came from the the debate.
He had qualities. He organized the people he defeated the British Army, their greatest general Chinese Charles Gordon. And he thought he was the mahadi. He was in a state of delusion.
And he gathered the troops and now he was heading toward Mecca, because he wanted to be between the Blackstone and the Yemeni corner, he wanted to take the BR and then get the Judgment Day on and he dropped dead from typhoid fever.
And then everybody realized, this is not the one
and it happened many times, people have made these claims reached high levels and they are in a state of delusion.
And so it is the simple things. It is the simple innocence of a child. That if you could have love for your brothers and sisters, if you can stand up for what is right.
prohibit the evil, unite and feel that innocence inside of yourself. This is greater than a person who will memorize 1000s of verses of the Quran, but not put it into practice.
This is the important thing.
The other element that we have along with Tuckwell that our verse has shown us Olia Allah alladhina amanu. Where can we attack
those who had taqwa and also those who believed and it is reported that the prophet SAW seldom on one occasion, and this is reported by Sofia bin Abdullah tartufi. That he said, Call to Jada Sula, LA, Khalifa, Islam polen, la Aloo, and who had an badak caller who are meant to belong to Mr. Kim.
So, this person came to the prophet SAW some of them and he said, Satan or messenger of Allah, tell me something in Islam, that of which I will not have to ask anybody about this thing after you know the words Give me something I which is a gym, give me something special.
I need some special advice and the purpose of seldom having our jameela Jamil Kalam, he said are meant to be law thermostatic
sounds very simple. He said that you should say I believe in Allah and then become upright.
And this word is the comma is another Kelly ma Kalamata Jamia? It is one it is a small word with a great meaning.
This is the karma is that the person just becomes upright.
just become a good person. That's all. Just clean your intentions. Be a righteous person and when you have this, you will be in a special category. This is a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And Allah azza wa jal tells us in certain facilities, in verse, verse 3030, and 31 he tells us our rules are below him in the shade on the regime. In Allah Xena Carlota Boone, Allahu Tomas Docomo, tetanus, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah to unlock powerful while our ability to build generative Leti quantum to address not only our comfort hierarchy dounia will fill after while our comfy Hama testa he and for sukham wala comfy hamata Darwin, New Zealand manila folder Raheem woman as a new colon, manda Illallah huami la salida wirkkala in the middle Muslim, Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us Verily, those who say Our Lord is Allah, and then they become upright, believing in
the oneness of Allah and worshiping none but him. on them the angels will descend,
saying, fear not, nor grief, but received the glad tidings of Paradise which you have been promised. We are your friends and protectors, in the life of this world, and in the hereafter. Here in you shall have all that your souls desire, in hearing you shall have all for what you asked for a welcome gift from the Forgiving, Most Merciful and who is better in speech than one who calls to Allah and does righteous deeds and says, surely I am from the Muslims. And so this verse is saying to us, in the Lizzie Nakamura bonala, through muster como,
they say their Lord is Allah, and then they become upright. As the prophet SAW Selim said, Call our men to Billa through muster can
say you believe in Allah, that's not enough, then you you now become upright. And so your Eman becomes accountability sand, what does deep bell curve well, MLB jawara that you will say it with your tongue, you will confirm it with your heart and you will practice it
it will become complete.
And with these simple steps, we can come out of a state of illusion
out of deception
and into the light of Allah subhanaw taala angels will descend upon that person. And when that person is in depth, they will feel happiness.
They will have assurity because of these actions that they have done,
what did they do?
Was it 1000s of verse they memorized? It was simple actions that they took with sincerity. They practice Islam completely. And Allah subhanaw taala has told us yeah, you have levena Armando Toluca, Cilmi, Kapha while at Abu attache thorn in the hula comb I do when will be it says oh you who believe enter into Islam completely.
And do not follow the footsteps of the evil one, for he is to you an open enemy. So on the one side is a de whorfin Islam cafetiere
entering into Islam completely, all aspects we practice, not only do we practice Islam, when we around Muslims, we practice it when we are in the society. Not only do we make us a lot when we're in the masjid, we make us a lot outside, at school, in an airplane, anywhere we respond to the call of Allah subhanaw taala.
Not only do we have good character when we around certain individuals, but that good character.
It stays with us in everything that we do. And so we come out of the state of delusion.
And a lot says at the end of this woman, US annual colon min manda Illallah huami la salida wirkkala in the middle muslimeen and who is better in speech than one who calls to Allah and does righteous deeds and says surely I am from the Muslims and this question that comes in the court and whenever
The verse comes in a question form. It is not a question in the sense of Allah wants the answer from us. What it's really saying is that the best in speech is the one who calls to Allah and does righteous deeds, and says I am from the Muslims. And that is the essence of our mission today that we are called upon, not to just be a Muslim in name, not to just come from a Muslim family.
But to practice Islam. Not to just say we are from the family of Allah, there's a madressa in my area, the Imam is he knows a lot. So if I have a problem, I go to the EMA. Now we have to study Islam, even if it's in a in a humble way, all of us have to make actions toward our Deen to come out of the state of delusion.
And the key issue now, how do we do this, we call to the path what is the dollar today, it is not necessarily giving speeches.
It is not necessarily debating the People of the Book,
arguing against them.
It is now bringing
viable solutions to real problems in society. This is what Islam has done historically, whenever it has come into an area, it has upgraded the life of the people. It has helped people to overcome racism, tribalism, alcoholism, drugs, crime, all of the problems in their societies. And we today have inherited this global society, living in sprawling urban areas with people who have now chemical problems, serious chemical problems, serious mental problems are amongst us. Families breaking up, how can this what solutions we hold gems of wisdom in our hands? It is right with us. But we need to now implement this, we need to put it into practice. And that wealth that we have
with us, this is an Amana it is not my money, it is not your money, this money belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. We have inherited this in this dunya while we are above the earth, but when we leave this, we cannot take it with us.
And so when we are in this position,
when this trust is in our hands, we need to now implement, be involved in issues in society. Struggle for the environment, now the environment is being destroyed, people are ruining the water, ruining the atmosphere, destroying animals, animals are becoming extinct.
And one study recently was being done by an Egyptian brother in the UK. And he's finding that there's about 602 languages in the world. It's a new science, which is developed of languages, about 602 languages in the world. And about every year 40 of them are becoming extinct.
And it's going down lower and lower and lower and lower. And you know what he found out, because they have now studied languages based on sound. And based upon the part of the mouth and how it has spread in societies. And for a long time, they looked at the languages of the world. And they didn't include the Arabic language. And so he took the course just recently in the UK, got his master's now went for his PhD. And now he put Arabic language to the test. And when they put Arabic language to the test, they have found that Arabic language now rates at this point number two of the languages that would stay on the earth, no matter what happens. The first language they say, which has a
longevity in it is Mandarin Chinese. But the brother has made a study
and he is now bringing forth his study. He came on a Middle East program, Sheikh Mohammed Hassan, Zhao laugher, many of you know him, he introduced him on the program, and he brought the study and he said when I bring this out, I have proof that Arabic language not only will be the longest living language, but it is the original language. It is the language of melodica. It is a language of gender. And he has scientific proof. And he showed that because they show phrases when you say a word, it has sounds inside of it. They have a machine which actually shows the sounds and they put the word Allah into the machine. And they were in shock because it is the
Only word that appears to have different phrases in it. But when you say it, it's only one sound.
It's only one. And there's no other word in any language, which has different phrases that appears to have different phrases. But when you say the word, it's only one sound.
he is bringing out this study.
And we are realizing now, what we are holding in our hands. This has caused resistance against us. This has caused us to be demonized. This is the reason why pressure is being applied upon us. Because we hold in our hands, gems of wisdom, to answer the problems of society, gems of wisdom to give a future to the planet to save the planet.
But But every long journey begins with one step.
And that step that we need to make is to come out of our illusion, and to revive our faith, to practice the fundamentals. Go back again.
Do the basics.
fall in love with what you are doing. And that wealth that is in your hands. And I say this to you tonight, because we have a great opportunity in this community as in other communities, to do something to help our children and to help our society
I was speaking with, you know, the Amir, just do today, we have an opportunity.
And we need to do something to save the younger generation. We also need to do something for those people who are coming in to be married, to find a halau way for them to come together to be married. To be able to counsel our community to provide alternatives. And all of you brothers, we're going to get you a wife inshallah, to find a halau alternative.
But that means we have to be courageous. And we have to think out of the box. Stay with Quran and Sunnah. But you don't have to be in a mold. Our cultures are not necessarily this mold, we have to wear certain clothes, we have to say certain things. The sun of the province of Southern can be adapted, can go to any society keep the principles, but deal with the society. We are now in a society where the younger generation is under attack.
And we are one of the groups that the majority of our people are actually young people. A study was done to find the majority of Muslims are actually 25 years and under. If you took all of the Muslims and put them out on one field, you're going to find most of them are young people. That's the majority. But what is in our masters today, most of our masters would respect it as activities for men over 35 years old.
Other people other aspects of society is nothing in the masjid in a time of the premises seldom the master was an all purpose Islamic Center. That's how you can describe it. There was not a beautiful building with a football. You know in a dome, a Muslim Liam that you visit like a museum. It was an action oriented place where people would learn about their faith
where they would they would be taught principles of Islam. Dawa was being given, even inside of the masjid. The people of Iran. The people of Yemen came to the masjid entered the masjid. They embraced Islam, some of them did not embraced. They were still treated with dignity.
When political decisions had to be made, the prophet SAW Selim calls a town hall meeting. Where did they do the town hall me Did he go outside the masjid in the masjid. So an all purpose Islamic Center.
This is what we have been talking for years, and going into the community saying, This is what we have to give to right now. Do something for your younger generation, save your young people help them to get married, help the young children to do to come out of this fantasy world and be confused about creatures and animals and, and confused about their own identity.
Do something right now. This is an opportunity that you are blessed to have out here in this town. And there are other people now who are standing up and realizing that we have to think outside the box. And we have to take this Dean in a way which is practical and relevant and stand up in society, whether they hate you or not. Whether the society is talking, we have solutions, and we can bring something else to the discourse in this society. We can show them the Islamic position, dealing with racism, the Islamic position dealing with drug abuse, the Islamic position dealing with homelessness, dealing with depression that people have in society. This is our topic.
Unity and we can only pray that Allah azza wa jal would give us this opportunity, purify our hearts, and take us out of this delusion in the life of this world. May Allah subhanaw taala help us to come out of this illusion created by the evil one. May Allah protect us from all the forces of evil that are surrounding our children. May Allah protect always and give honor to the children of the home of Mohammed sauce Allah? May Allah protect the women of the home of Mohammed sauce Allah, may Allah protect the men of the oma of Mohammed sauce Allah, may Allah raise up leadership in this generation that will stand up for Islam, regardless of the cost. And may Allah keep on our lips, the words of
the court and that we would never forget. Woman as a new colon, men men da de la la huami la salejaw we'll call it Indonesia Milan Muslim mean, and who is better in speech than one who calls to Allah and does righteous deeds and says surely I am from the Muslims? May Allah help us to live and die in a state of Islam? May Allah give us kalama are the Kalamata tauheed at the end of our life. May Allah put this on the lips of all who are here tonight. May all who hear this make May Allah make our last words to be our best words.
