Welcome back to our metric on radio Islam international and very very warm welcome to our guest Idris camisa. Who's speaking for us today out of the other side of Africa Maputo. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
salam wa rahmatullah Chaka Maulana How are you? Cindy? Very well, hon. Lila is very, very good to hear that you must close it was today.
But I'm closer than that.
Oh, yes. Yes.
How are you keeping? Very well, man, I got so much to say about Mozambique. I want you before you speak to me. I want you to take your mom
The SEC you know, is an excellent brother who caught my trip you can ask him why he invited me or what has happened so far. And these are Allah bless him and his family right 55 and we'll share that moment as
they go along.
How are you keeping?
Very well as humbly logical.
You managed to get
to Mozambique? What's the whole trip about in which way tell us Firstly, which organization at us?
first of all, I like to call on the Muslim brothers.
we are in the coordination with the one of the main constituents here
which is here to one of the maschio
and already is about more than 1000 to 1200 students
then he isn't too
brother in this condition here.
We have been invited a
few weeks ago, Bob Jones
and we listen to a speech in Boston and realize this is one of the speakers was looking for, to bring into the hotel. Okay, we started this program on Tuesday
or Wednesday yesterday, we did about two programs one in the morning and one in the evening.
Today also we did the two programs. Tomorrow inshallah is going to visit one of them aggressor which he got more than 250 students tomorrow afternoon is going to be one of the minister of education departments. Either way is a training to their teacher
is a one of the reasons why we call him and I think so is a very powerful man for the special for the country Lancaster is all of the speech was ed is another speech only for the Muslim community special for non Muslim community.
And that is the beginning of the first trip to Lincoln was a weekend inshallah, we are preparing another possibility to come and talk to the subject.
And from the National Cancer, it's a very beneficial, very fruitful trip in a pleasant trip for you, as well.
What sort of work are you involved in for the moment? What are the work which I am doing?
Okay, I believe my name is not difficult for people in the slum. I was very linked a few years ago.
I believe, you know something about what he was doing before, what we're doing now, under business consultants. Okay, that is my
main issue of my professional practice. We are also in the organization which would like to improve the quality to bring just people from overseas and local people here to start to talk about not only inside of our community but outside of the community and from the American national level, accept your work in Allah subhanaw taala crunches success in the efforts that you're making for the Muslim community and Allah subhanaw taala make whatever efforts you make beneficial for the Muslim community
to work together
Islam It is very welcome back to radio Islam International, the listeners want to want to listen to you such an important man all the way from Mozambique Mashallah
I cannot thank her enough that you are getting invited to these places. And we are not worthy of these invitations. But Allah makes it very, very easy. Because every time you go you prepare new topics you enrich by the people, you meet your brothers and your sisters Alhamdulillah excellent work and the audience's that for the predominantly non Muslims. So in our own way, we are giving the message of Islam you know, and I'm vanilla and the hospitality is great. And they are making a lot of effort to get scholars every now and then to this
adea and one of the things that the some of the questions that were asked, I spoke
patriotism. I spoke today about leadership tonight about personal
empowerment. And the questions, the questions, people ask the questions
that most people want answers to. It's about relationships, it's about how you deal with people, it's about how you can unleash your potential. It's about how, you know, as young people, they have aspirations for the future. And the real concern is about what they get jobs and all of that, you know, and Mozambique is a very, very, for a developing, I remember, it's my third trip here, my first trip was in 1970, I think it was, then when the flood came here many, many years ago, the use of Islam, we came to have the people. And then this is my third trip and and what has changed. But it's important
that we play a significant part because Mozambique is also steeped in history. You know, Muslims have come many, many years ago year also. And so I'm looking forward to meeting with them. And I pray this could be a beginning of a long journey. But what is important while and this is a message I also want to give
to our brothers and sisters, our lessons throughout the world is, you know, you'll find that one of the things that I also spoke about change that people are very, very, you know, we're always in a comfort zone, we don't feel we should change who we are, we get everything we want. And I told them, the world is changing so fast, that we need to really be abreast of what's happening around us know exactly what's going on in the hearts and minds of our children know exactly what's going on, you know, a home sometimes, he's the last one to know what's in our home. So these are very important things and to see how this
we can reconnect with our family, we can reconnect, you know, with Alex Montana, and we can embrace all the noble things, I mean, everything, everything, everything, but the Quran expects apart and to follow the excellent example pipes of lobbyists and allow you to sell them.
you just wait this programs that you are having in Mozambique, especially with the government departments and non Muslim audiences? Well, how how's the reception been at these
programs? It has been excellent, is the kind of questions they be asking. They're being very, very receptive, because I was, you know, understandably nervous, in the sense that you are speaking to an audience that may not all be familiar with the English language, but on the law, they have gone out of their way to get a translator. And to do that. And there are so many questions, and I and one of the things that I like to do is, you know, I do not like to lecture to people, once you start lecturing to them. It's almost very condescending. I tried to like, for example, this morning, my topic was on leadership, when I was tempted to speak about the different types of leaders and how
you define them. But no, I changed my topic. I said, Well, I said to them, each one of you can become a leader. And then we identified about 10 attributes, what are the 10 attributes that are necessary for you to become a leader, and that was far more engaging. So they realize that, you know, you've got to give people hope, you know, we make assumptions.
Sometimes that a person is a leader, because maybe he comes from a comfortable home, because maybe he went to a special school, and maybe, you know, he's getting lots of subsidy and so on and so forth. But you often find leaders I mean, I spoke about the prophets, Allah be pleased with all of them, that they came and they really revolutionized society and change society, and you have to be an agent of change. Now, the thing is, before you become a leader, you need to confront all your demons, you need to confront your issues. I mean, one of the questions that was asked, he says, when she said to me, what if you always are doing good to people, and but you what you get from them evil
in return. And now because we are human, we tend to sabotage protect relationship is okay, fine. If that person is going to do this from something good to that individual. And that's not the way to do things. We continue to be who we are, to do the good and Allah knows that you have done that. And then
is most critical if there's not anyone else's books except, I mean, that's it.
And so it's important that we do that. And also, you know, we spoke about relationships like like yesterday,
before patriotism. And the notion of patriotism is like a blind falling of the government is not something we explore, explore. I said, patriotism is also you looking after your neighborhood, making sure that you know your neighborhood is clean your house around your speed, that you are poor. It's basically about developing social etiquette. So when people come to us come, they see my boss, whether they come from a passport control, the customer facials, wherever they are, what they get from people is kindness, compassion, and social etiquette is about relationships. In the end, if you can do that, that's the best you have the best ambassador for your countries. And that's very,
very important. Jenna also said to them, that whenever you are in a country, you always think that grass is greener on the other side. They look at their fancy buildings. You look at the cars, they drive, you look at the so called modernity and the development, irregardless, but what you have in Mozambique, you're happier. Yes, the hearts of people. They are wonderful. People with great hearts. Oh, yes. And I always say that, you know, empires are both lots of people.
And it's a reflection that people give of Islam that has the effect on the community as well as on the land. And that all goes to show from the type of people that have a we, we I have visited Mozambique on a few occasions and the last we visited was in Sumatra and I spent three days demotic at the masjid taqwa. Anyway, it was a beautiful experience meeting the privacy, you know, going to visit them at their homes and speaking with them. And it was really, it is very Mozambique, Omar makuta particularly, reminds me more of an Arab city. And then then a European type of a city in a Yes, yes. But in the early days, it was like a continental city and whatnot. But things have changed
quite radically. And I will just take point that you raised, you know, you know, that I think, you know, those who can travel, we need to encourage them to travel, the, the bottom of the horizon. And I think and I'm so glad the initiative they're taking is to really show people what Islam is all about, because there is this narrow notion of Islam, which we get from the media and your own. Yes, one is TV, a typical one. And they are doing the nice thing maybe we need to look at, you know how best we are able to do our programs with non Muslims in our own country. And it's not about Helen Villa, the dove organizations are doing Sterling work there. And we need to do that because Islam is
indeed a religion of peace is a religion. Nabi sallallahu, wasallam came as a mercy unto all mankind. And sometimes sometimes, when you stay in a predominantly non Muslim community, you can become insular in isolation. So it's important that the Muslim brothers and sisters who are high up in the echelons of government, that they play a significant role and speak to the brother or sister, how much do you know about Islam? What is your knowledge of Islam? And we need to do that because the natural extension of education is to do that by some something. I think maybe I don't make a value judgments Polansky for myself, I don't think we're doing enough of that, you know,
if you just continue nine months after 11, we need to take a break. But before we do that, I'd like to welcome our listeners on the program as well, particularly visitors from Mozambique and we have a number of people who are listening to us from me if you have any questions, any requests anything that you would like to share with Idris camisa please SMS 07317384610731738461 and if they is anyone that would like to call was Welcome to call in as well.

welcome back to elementary Canary Islam International. Welcome back to a case from Mozambique today. The Idris camisa
I forget you know Alhamdulillah you know the joy I get when they visit other countries and they tell me you know what we listen to radio Islam for example and when I went to Nigeria One of them was quoting something more than a sermon mala mentioned you know and things like that we get so much of joy when we know and learn that we have amongst us you know people dynamic spawners who really impact on people in wherever they go and they were you know regular Islam takes them for example. So now while some the IKEA one of the brothers who is working in the university, he says he always listens to radio Islam so ramlila
Mashallah, this is promising news from the lie that people are listening all over the world.
question that I received over WhatsApp. Just the other day, I'm going to be giving you a brief gist of the question it was from a sister who is complaining with regards to her husband. And
the complaint is that her husband belittles all of the time. And whatever she does her husband,
he has very controlling sort of way about him. Even if she says something good, his reply is very good, very abrupt. And if she even tries to do something good, instead of praising her, he would rather look for some fault out of it, or his reply would be very good.
And even to the extent that after she gave birth, he wasn't thankful about it. That was a complaint. But instead, he said, Well, that's what all ladies have to go through. And that was the problem that the system is facing. She's asking for advice, how to deal with it, how to deal with her husband, and how to make her husband come down to us and realize and empathize with se.
Yes, you know, Mawlana what you are mentioning now, is a problem in many, many homes.
You know, is forget about what you tell your wife,
you must also look at your tone you use.
Sadly, not many people have formal lives, we do not embrace them, we do not celebrate them. Now, I will try to look for the underlying reason why this person is doing what he's doing. I suspect that I may be wrong,
that he grew up in a home where perhaps his father was like this and he regard this as a norm something is that is acceptable. But what he is doing is completely unethical.
never please, we're back. Because you're home, you are alone with your wife. And it is almost cowardly for you to show such insensitivity.
My recommendation is is that, you know, I can tell you now is unlikely the man would want to seek counseling or whatever. But I recommend strongly that he goes through Islamic airline or hopeline, where they will have to deal with the situation is not prepared to accompany. And that's another point. Marriage is a partnership is not you're not alone in it. So both parties need to go. And and and when you go for counseling is upset in the notion that I'm stupid, you know, something, nothing wrong with me stupid is not about that. But when it comes to relationship dynamics, sometimes you need an objective voice telling you, guiding you taking you by the hand listening to you. And
therefore I want to tell all brothers, I know the examples of sisters will do the same thing. But we are talking about brothers now. I think it is critical. It's very, very important that we speak to our wife a lot of love and affection. We need to be more caring and nurturing. And I think you know, the last thing
if you look at the example of Novi Sad allowed he was such an eloquent example that he helped in the house. Oh, he was so loving, so caring. And I remember your your the words that you shared of nimbyism, allow yourself to keep relationships moist. And I think also, the idea of it forgive me I shot that you are the queen and I'm your kids.
You know, so it's important that we understand that because we regret it. Your relationships in the community are nothing compared to your relationship within your own household. Because a community might forget about who you are. But it is your household will live with you. Your household if your household tells you that my father was a decent human being So will it be with each other
says in English, it is also my encouragement for ladies who go through this is the basic principle that our happiness and our sadness, our condition doesn't depend on external people and especially on external factors. And no matter what people to say to us, we have to know that our happiness is with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Absolutely, this is critical. You say what happens is, specifically when you got a low self esteem, when you look for happiness outside, you know, your husband is happy with you, and you're very happy such like that. You can always maintain that happiness, the pursuit of happiness, so you can deal with your situation. The most important thing if you are reading your Salah, even the right thing, you're doing a charity, you're being kind to your husband, and everything else. He has to deal with it. We sometimes suffer for other people's inadequacies. They need to deal with it. I know it's difficult, we are human. We live with this every day of our life. But in the end, Allah forbid that
you allow someone like your husband, to sabotage your own happiness because you're a part of the Illuminati of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have a responsibility. You have a huge responsibility in terms of fulfilling that particular duty to the oma.
It is very
rare for the answer to that question. I just like to welcome our listeners again, please send your SMS in questions through to 0731738461 and you can call in on 11854155 particularly our listeners all the way out in Mozambique in Maputo, particularly, it is very heavy. Have you been to visit other places of Mozambique, northern parts of Mozambique
many years ago when I first came to Martin big I remember I went to Vida i went to kilimani I went to all those places because I had you know, you know
support you know we we got cuddles everywhere you know,
David Sloan in Maputo and other parts of Myrtle Beach I remember coming here many years ago, and what I remember was the beautiful Rico's be able to swim quite deep in Maputo and in envira and kilimani. I know one of the rituals they like not in Mozambique. On a Sunday evening, it was almost every member of every household used to walk in the beachfront, you know, and this, to me is a very social thing. There was a lot of family togetherness. And unlike today when you walk in the desert beachfront also, you'll find your family walking, the wife got her cell phone, her husband by
Your cell phone, the kids got their cell phone. And then the show is on about, you know, we allow that to into enclosed. So I've been to other parts and I remember the Final Four that we use here, right? Use my phones, and
you know, the UCLA, UT in different parts of the world. And no one country has a monopoly of that beauty. Yes, and less beauty is the knife came to visit us up until kealan Coors and it's completely tropical in that area. It's like in some tropical island
of islands around. And it's so important, you know, traveling, as I said, is educative. You learn you meet people. And, you know, the, you know, you cannot learn everything from a book. And what you learn is the knowledge is theoretical, but you really gain wisdom, not from books to gain wisdom when you interact with people. And we understand that everyone's situation is different, there is a particular context to it. And that makes a huge, huge difference. Yes.
Regarding the programs that you're doing in Mozambique, this time around, it's just with,
with school teachers, and that, have you had any public programs? Yes, you know, I had, actually, I just give you the for one second.
Yesterday morning, I did a youth empowerment program, that the university did pick your poison last night, this morning leadership and this evening, personal empowerment. Then this Saturday morning, at nine o'clock, I'm doing a financing program. And three o'clock in the afternoon I'm doing a marriage program is a public program. And this program has been advertised in the local paper is really advertised there. And really, when you come here, when you see this is very humbling monana and I really, it's so humbling. When you see when people
put me in a project for a person like me not worthy to be there, who really treat me like I'm an important person, because I am not an important person. And you know, Allah bless him for the good thoughts. And the what, to me is even more significant is the concern about the wider community, they want the wider community to also benefit from Muslim scholars, benefits from the wisdom and they you know, so and that that is really, really gasifying and inshallah I believe strongly from what has happened so far, that inshallah I know, at least, you know, I have no doubt with that. So Nikki, one more trip in Mozambique this year, and regular trips in the following inshallah
and any any particular problem, any particular issues facing the people of Mozambique, similar to the cases that you get here in South Africa, one of the things that really is of some concern here is that the safety issue is become a huge problem. There are many, many examples of young
Muslim children being being kidnapped, you know, and the asking for huge, huge ransom. And that is becoming really a pattern. And Allah knows who's involved with this. And they would keep that individual for as long as it takes until they get what their money is at the expense of you, you know, that's very, very frightening. That's one area. The other area is of course,
which is a no fully active service, rudimentary level, but the atmosphere is media. I come here as a tourist is peaceful, the atmosphere is great Alhamdulillah and it's also you know, whenever you leave the comfort of your home, you begin to enjoy the things that you have left behind. But in the end you know, you're staying in any particular place you depend largely on the hearts of the people in my costume Katyusha there really is no one to entertain to look after you to feed you. And everyone wants to do something and Shall I pray that to mama deseq and his committee, his own family, Allah left his home his household, and that is important, you know, and it is when you meet
your brothers and sisters who have the same fate especially, he does as if you know each other for a long, long time.
That is the great promising thing about
threatened about this one that we all say of a man is going to take a short break once again and when we return with this conclude our programming Sharma Stay tuned to Al Masnick already some international

Welcome back to slam international and welcome back to yesterday's camisa It is my final words of advice. inshallah, before we park,
maybe I'll just give you the 10 points quickly that I shared with the people about becoming a leader.
Right. The one point that I mentioned I said they must learn the art of public speaking, very important. Then I said to them, that they must begin to become avid readers.
The third thing I mentioned was you got to learn from your own mistakes.
The other thing I mentioned also you are learn from the mistakes of other people. I said you got to believe in yourself. You need to look at the examples of the prophets and emulate them. I said you need to also
you know find out from your legal leadership in your community and learn from them. The other important thing is this I said and when you do become a leader, you're not doing it for yourself but to serve others. So these are some of the points that I shared with them. And I think it's very important that all of us inshallah can become leaders in their own way we are leaders in our home and Morales and as one title says, You don't have to be you don't have to have a title to be a leader. So Alhamdulillah there are very very receptive and modern is always a always a joy to speak you me I love this you look up to you. inshallah. inshallah. inshallah you forgetting one part of at
least not yet. Not yet. Not yet.
Not yet. In fact, Mama, I'm so blessed. I bought my shush of of Lena Woodley. Oh, my Salah. You Yeah, my buddy Levin ello he's there he listened to my talk yesterday. And you know hamdulillah and, and may all of us love our sushi Baba.
