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

There are many forms of corruption. political corruption is something that we see every day. It's stuck. It's in our eyes. And we know the effects of political corruption and financial corruption, tyranny, oppression, we see it on the TV every day you see the tyranny in Egypt. You see the oppression of Muslims by Muslims, so called Muslims by the Muslims. We see it in Syria, so called Muslims by them, we see it in Iraq, we see it all over the world. And there are many unanswered questions that we can cannot answer. There's darkness becomes so overwhelming, that sometimes we have no answers, injustice is darkness, this obedience to alized darkness, this obedience to

00:00:41--> 00:00:48

Mohammed salatu salam is darkness. So darkness is not only Cofer, or the rejection

00:00:50--> 00:00:58

of the revelation which allows further ascent, but darkness also lies within the soul of men. The actions of men.

00:01:00--> 00:01:04

So, allows you to reveal this book.

00:01:06--> 00:01:15

This light, this node allows foreigner cozad new rune Allah new, light upon light, so pardon Allah,

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

that this book, Allah refer to it as light upon light.

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

In other words, is physical light. And upon that physical light is the divine light.

00:01:30--> 00:01:51

The Divine like the physical IBC with a with a physical eyes in the divine light, we see what the heart with the eyes of the heart and the eyes of the mind. When allows further liberates the mind opens the mind. When you look into the Koran as I say always and you read the Koran, and you understand what it says in English, then you are reading with

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

the eyes of the heart and the eyes of the mind and the eyes of the soul. When you only switch on the light to read the Quran without understanding.

00:02:03--> 00:02:07

Only you will receive his Baraka but no understanding it won't change your life.

00:02:09--> 00:02:37

And the Quran is supposed to be a life changing experience. It is supposed to change your life, not completely. It's supposed to change your life slowly. You read something and it changes your life. You read something else and you better your life. You read something else and you better your life. So Allah Sandra said this book to Mohammed Salas, Allah and Allah says Lucretia nurse Amina Zulu Mattila No, and just that sentence, you could probably contemplate on the sentence of light

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

for 1000 years, and you won't get beyond what light really is.

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

I mean, there's light years,

00:02:45--> 00:03:03

light travels at 168,000 miles per second, can you imagine that light travels at 186,000 miles per second. So if you're going to BMW, the light is on you think it's fast, forget about it. 186,000 miles per second, and imaginable

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

and imaginable.

00:03:07--> 00:03:18

And the universe is so big that sometimes there are objects in the universe that's 1000 light years away from us. In other words, light must travel 1000 years,

00:03:19--> 00:03:23

at 186,000 miles per second, for that light to reach my eye.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

The mind is too small to envisage

00:03:32--> 00:04:02

into taking the grand idea of the creation of a loss just in terms of light. We're not even talking about the actual physical objects which are created the sun and the moon and the stars and human beings and water. We're just talking about that which connects us to the physical world, because without light will be disconnected from the physical world. We're just talking about the medium that connects us so that we can see and interact with the physical 186,000 miles seconds.

00:04:04--> 00:04:22

Southern Ibiza Salaam says, Allah says to the Prophet you must take men from the darkness of all these oppressive, of the worship of men by men for example, which is rampant in rife in the time with an emphasis on love. The Romans, people worship them the Persians, people worship them, the pharaohs people worship them.

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

And the second mission and the mission second mission of all the profits was to teach men

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

that this life

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

is a very temporary life.

00:04:41--> 00:04:49

It's a prelude. You know, when you go to a restaurant, they give you a mini menu what you see there you see starches or other herbs.

00:04:50--> 00:04:55

And then only are maybe we'll skip that. Why because they want to go to

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

the main course.

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

denominate oh that's gonna fill me up I'd rather go for the Korean straight for the So, promises Salam came to teach us that this life is only Oh d'oeuvres these are the starters

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

that

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

there is another life to come

00:05:18--> 00:05:25

after this a life which will lead to a place called jedna

00:05:31--> 00:05:37

something inshallah which I will speak about again some other time before I get distracted, because I like to talk about the gentleman.

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

So that was his message.

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

And those of us

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

who prefer this life over the next life

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

and it's a human failing.

00:05:53--> 00:06:00

It's a human failing, that we all think maybe will be missed. Maybe we'll get a mortality.

00:06:01--> 00:06:05

Just maybe there's a chance, and how can I die in Christ? I mean,

00:06:08--> 00:06:17

but it's a human failing. Everybody thinks like that. That's how we sin. That's what we do the things that we're not supposed to do. Or we think maybe it'll all come to an end.

00:06:19--> 00:06:23

Once you close your eyes for the last time, it'll just all cup it'll just stop. So Pinilla

00:06:25--> 00:06:25

thought possible.

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

that a man

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

who never told a lie in his life

00:06:33--> 00:06:49

will come and tell us the actually so he was taken in the Mirage through the seven heavens to our last panel, Tyler told us it exists. Tell us about the last day, not only he knows the final, amazing Janus thing in a line of messengers brought exactly the same message.

00:06:50--> 00:06:55

So those who oppose Allah's revelation, and we see it in the world today.

00:06:57--> 00:07:06

The 52 Muslim countries, the 52 people who rule 2 billion people and oppress 2 billion people can you believe 52 men?

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

I think there's one woman in Bangladesh

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

where one woman ruling in Bangladesh.

00:07:17--> 00:07:21

So it's 51 men and one woman causing the mayhem that you see in the world today.

00:07:26--> 00:07:30

And sometimes we as the people should take responsibility.

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

No, you're saying cc is doing this and acid is doing that.

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

King Abdullah is doing that.

00:07:40--> 00:07:48

What about the people on the ground? What about us? We say no, this one is doing that to us. And that one is doing that. But what am I doing?

00:07:51--> 00:08:14

And long before I lost I'm going to say Mohamed Salah la hora salami. St. musante. Salamis. It's appropriate that me Brahim, the surah of Ibrahim talks about musala. opening gambit opening allows talks in the surah. about Islam. And when Allah talks of an Abbe Moosa Allah Salatu. Salam, obviously, what comes to mind is, is Egypt missing?

00:08:17--> 00:08:21

The land of Moses was the land of Egypt, land

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

that today

00:08:25--> 00:08:33

is in turmoil, complete turmoil. We don't know nobody knows. Is there going to be a civil war?

00:08:34--> 00:08:39

Is the military going to mow the people down and kill 1000s of people? We don't know.

00:08:41--> 00:08:44

We are praying stuff and we are concerned and we worried because

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

for all of what ejabberd endured,

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

since 1840,

00:08:54--> 00:09:06

of colonialism, and so forth and so on, he had remained true to the education of Islam, that's always been the center of education.

00:09:07--> 00:09:13

Allah bless the Egyptians was not only the beautiful tongues which Allah gave them to read the Quran,

00:09:15--> 00:09:21

that allows him to also bless them in the intellect in that they provide for the whole Arab world. They're all about

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

the whole Muslim world.

00:09:26--> 00:09:33

In fact, presently, the Egyptians provide to the Muslim world, the doctors, the artisans and so forth and so on.

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

So highly skilled race, highly skilled nation,

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

a nation

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

stemming from abuse of Nabil Moosa

00:09:47--> 00:09:47

wealth.

00:09:49--> 00:09:58

In our province Prophet said I forgot when it comes to mind abeokuta of course when most of the profits went to Egypt, so it's a land that has been blessed by laws.

00:10:03--> 00:10:09

And allows Muhammad Allah had given me most of the same message. The message was,

00:10:10--> 00:10:31

take your people out of the bondage of darkness, the Bani Israel, the Jews, and lead them away from bondage and slavery and humiliation, and secure for them their freedom, freedom of mind, freedom of conscience, freedom of movement, and the privilege to enjoy a less kindness and generosity.

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

And all Musab from his people was

00:10:40--> 00:10:43

for them to appreciate the favors of our last panel.

00:10:45--> 00:10:51

And I think many of the ills that beset us as individuals and as communities and as families,

00:10:57--> 00:11:03

things that happen to us as individuals, as married men and married women,

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

as mothers and fathers with families,

00:11:09--> 00:11:15

as communities are things that never happened to our forefathers, to my father than your father.

00:11:17--> 00:11:25

And one of the most glaring contributions to the imbalances

00:11:26--> 00:11:31

and the problems that we confront is our ungratefulness for the favors of Alzheimer's.

00:11:33--> 00:11:43

From the four year old, to the eight year old, you will see the ingrained ungratefulness that we have for the Alzheimer's given to us.

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

Nobody's satisfied with anything.

00:11:49--> 00:11:57

We never satisfied we always show and in gret in a phase of ingratitude we're always complaining also.

00:11:58--> 00:12:03

They might want to do the wives always complained aspirants complain the children complain, the jet grandchildren complain.

00:12:05--> 00:12:14

And all that allows foreigners asking for us is to be grateful for the favors which Allah has given to us. And Allah says in Surah, Allah insha

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

Allah says, Don't you know Muslims, the benefits of being grateful?

00:12:28--> 00:12:34

Allah says, and if you say thank you and Al Hamdulillah and I'm satisfied,

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

Lassie, then

00:12:37--> 00:12:55

Allah says I won't just say Mashallah, my good slave is thanking me Mashallah is a good man know, Allah says, like you said your child Mashallah you saying thank you all my child mo what a good child she's Mashallah. She says Alhamdulillah Allah doesn't say Allah says, If you thank me, what will I do to you? I will give you more.

00:12:57--> 00:13:02

If our children says thank you, we say Well, fine, I've given him an IP number.

00:13:03--> 00:13:08

Since Al Hamdulillah you've eaten Yeah, no more no more food for you. But allows

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

you say thank you. I say I give you

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

a checker to

00:13:17--> 00:13:28

look at our cell now. Mousavi Aya Tina an athlete's coma kameena Lola Mattila know where that key room be? Yeah, Bella, enough evatik la it the coolest sambar in Chicago.

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

Allows Wagner says

00:13:33--> 00:13:41

and we said Moosa was our signs and the command, bring out the people from the depths of darkness into light and teach them of the days of Allah.

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

What does Allah mean? Teach them of the days of Allah.

00:13:48--> 00:13:53

The same as the days a yarmulke means those days in which allows of how God was good to them.

00:13:55--> 00:14:03

What Allah, Allah saying to us, if you want to enhance your gratitude, think about the good times a yamo law.

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

Think about the times when you had lots and lots of whatever you had lots of health, maybe lots of wealth, maybe lots of happiness made me

00:14:14--> 00:14:29

and Alex Wagner says very early in this there are signs for such as a family patient and constantly grateful and appreciative allows father that says you have to be grateful and appreciate because remember, if there's a downturn, it's a test.

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

And it is an uptrend. It's even a bigger test that allows random places on you.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

We know as I said in the beginning,

00:14:40--> 00:14:43

that all religions all divine faiths

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

had one objective and that was to transport men from perversion, to knowledge and uprightness.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

We do it in different forms, but that is basically what religion teaches us. However, throughout history

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

The man has always try to divert the attention of believers away from the revelation of the messengers towards what they deem to be good for whatever

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

will serve their own purposes.

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

Many of our leaders

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

have used the power, the wealth, the influence,

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

to entice those who believe away from what they believe away from the truth.

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

But the faithful

00:15:35--> 00:15:40

as always, perseverance, allows fatherless says

00:15:44--> 00:15:50

they say to the downtrodden, and they say to the oppressed people, why do you put your trust in Allah?

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

Why don't you become a secularist?

00:15:56--> 00:16:06

Because maybe secularism will will solve your problems. We know in Egypt, we have what the news tell us. They have divided this society into Islamists

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

and secularists.

00:16:10--> 00:16:21

And it appears that the secularists are the people now was taken to the streets and brought about the downfall or brought the military into the streets and removed the elected President Morsi from power.

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

And the message the military guys are giving to the people of Egypt is this.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

These Islamists,

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

these people

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

want to implement the Quran and Sunnah.

00:16:43--> 00:16:43

They

00:16:44--> 00:16:49

will not be able to provide for you your basic needs.

00:16:56--> 00:17:09

I don't know why we the argument comes from that they want to impose Islam upon the people of Egypt. But that's exactly what it's supposed to be. It's a Muslim country, with 90% Muslim population.

00:17:10--> 00:17:20

So if a government wants to impose Islam upon such a people, they should welcome it with open arms. But what do we have? We have people who are called secularists.

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

What is a secularist?

00:17:28--> 00:17:36

A secularist is a Muslim who says my Deen is a private matter between me and Allah.

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

And my dunya is mine.

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

And the government's

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

that's a secularist.

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

So the secularists in Egypt are saying that

00:17:59--> 00:18:10

immense faith is his private affair. Government is something different. They all the rules of governance applies that applies in the rest of the world.

00:18:14--> 00:18:25

And they serve as a saying well marlana olana tawakkol Allah La vaca Donna suparna will not be run alhama de una wala la he fell yet our Canon moutoku.

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

And the Muslim says, Why should we not put our trust in Allah?

00:18:34--> 00:18:39

When he has already guided us to our path of truth, I mean, the fact that you are Muslim is because he guided us.

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

And they say we shall certainly Bay with patience, all the hurt that you may cause us.

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

For those who put their trust to put the trust only in Allah

00:18:54--> 00:19:03

and you this is a message that comes through. When you when you when you when you listen to the comments of the people that took part in the sittings. This is what they say.

00:19:04--> 00:19:11

They say we will sit here and we don't mind to give our lives in order for us to be free because we put our trust in Allah.

00:19:17--> 00:19:18

I can almost imagine

00:19:20--> 00:19:28

the kind of confusion that must be raining in the minds of particularly the young people, young Egyptians.

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

They were promised democracy.

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

They voted for democracy.

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

They were supported by so their so called friends and supporters in the West.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

And before they could wake up from the dream state of democracy, it was taken away from them and those very people who espoused democracy

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

has another song to sing.

00:20:05--> 00:20:25

That no this government democratic government wasn't inclusive sends, when does democracy demand inclusiveness in the West? When the name democrats win the election, the democrats rule when the republicans win the elections in America, they rule they don't say to the Democrats, come and sit here with us, you know, for one cabinet or for you know,

00:20:26--> 00:20:36

suddenly now, America saying what democracy must come inclusiveness In other words, you win the election, but you must take the opposition in with you into into governance.

00:20:37--> 00:20:44

Now, I can understand it maybe argument to say, it's a good thing. But that's not the point. The point is, it's not part of democracy in the West.

00:20:45--> 00:20:49

Why do you add things now, because democracy to these people,

00:20:50--> 00:20:59

but it's also about our understanding of words. You know, the way we speak the things that we say, makes an impression in our minds.

00:21:00--> 00:21:06

And we will never be able unless we will only be free if we employ the terms that the Quran employs.

00:21:08--> 00:21:13

We will never be free if we employ the terms is employed by our enemies and monsters.

00:21:14--> 00:21:24

Some people says, people use the term Renaissance. They say, you know, we need a Renaissance, you need an Islamic Renaissance and Islamic rebirth.

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

But what is the Renaissance mean?

00:21:28--> 00:21:41

What is the historical significance of Renaissance was the upheavals that took place in Europe during between the 14th and the 16th century. And what happened in the renaissance in the Renaissance.

00:21:43--> 00:21:54

The upstart of the Renaissance was exactly the point of secularism to take the church out of the state and to make it a private matter. That is the first thing.

00:21:55--> 00:21:59

Secondly, from that came,

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

colonialism.

00:22:04--> 00:22:14

From colonialism came the widespread exploitation of not only the raw materials of the oppressed, but also the oppressed themselves.

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

From that sprang apartheid,

00:22:19--> 00:22:28

and so many other isms that men had to deal with. So that is Renaissance. It was from one dark age to the next to another Dark Age.

00:22:31--> 00:22:36

It was from the Dark Age of the oppression of the church, to the Dark Age of the oppression of secularism.

00:22:38--> 00:22:43

So when we use the word Renaissance, that is what it means.

00:22:45--> 00:22:50

Strike the word people say, you know, fiha, there's no spirituality in Islam.

00:22:54--> 00:22:59

But have you ever gone to the internet and looked up the word, the eastern spirituality,

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

look it up.

00:23:06--> 00:23:10

It has no place. It has no place

00:23:12--> 00:23:15

in the spiritual development of a Muslim

00:23:20--> 00:23:24

Why? Because it is associated

00:23:26--> 00:23:30

with people who rejected all religion.

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

There was a period in the 50s, after the Second World War,

00:23:39--> 00:23:45

when a large proportion of Europeans and Americans rejected religion, Christianity, Islam, whatever Judaism

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

and they created a new faith called spirituality.

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

Spirituality means a faith in which there is no God.

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

It means a faith that you create yourself through either meditation

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

or black magic.

00:24:13--> 00:24:18

Or believing in your ancestors, anything besides God.

00:24:20--> 00:24:25

So in the West employees, the term spirituality means a movement

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

which rejects the presence of God in your life.

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

So how can I

00:24:36--> 00:24:44

use the term and say, Islamic spirituality? How do you put the two together? It's an oxymoron. It's a contradiction in terms.

00:24:45--> 00:24:55

How can you say Islamic spirituality How can you say there is Islam spirituality which there is no God in Islam there is emphasis on to aid in the worship of one through Allah was part of

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

why we accepted this term question is not

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Is it a veritable a good tip? Because we've lost our own terminology.

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

We've lost terms such as

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

Islam,

00:25:13--> 00:25:16

because catch deed renewal.

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

These are the terms used by Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:25:22--> 00:25:30

These are the terms used in the Quran taqwa Eman. We don't talk about spirituality we talk about development of development of

00:25:31--> 00:25:35

when we want to be near to Allah subhanaw taala. That is what we use.

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

And that is the terms that allows for handler uses

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

same as a temporary and so still we don't use it.

00:25:44--> 00:25:48

Because Renaissance is connected to people like Voltaire.

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

Rousseau, Machiavelli wrote the prince,

00:25:55--> 00:26:04

know to book on leadership called the prince, what are you writing this book says leaders must be upright leaders must not tell lies, but there are many times when they have to tell lies.

00:26:05--> 00:26:12

If it rotates a position in their walls in the power, a leader must be able to tell lies with a straight face.

00:26:14--> 00:26:24

You should buy this little book called The prince by Machiavelli. And it's, it's written by a was an Italian and he wrote on leadership. That's what he wrote.

00:26:26--> 00:26:32

But when we think Ren when we think Islam, when we think reconstruction, when we think

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

that Jeet renewal

00:26:36--> 00:26:48

who do we think of? We think of Omar even hotter, we think of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. We think of Abu Bakr, Omar Abdul Aziz, we think of the great people was led us. So what the term comes to people,

00:26:49--> 00:27:03

when a young man who's been to UC to UW any of the Western institutions, or high school in Cape Town, his mindset is when you mentioned Renaissance, then he thinks of those names.

00:27:05--> 00:27:07

He doesn't think of Omar Obama's awesome.

00:27:08--> 00:27:13

So the whole narrative of the Muslims have to change.

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

Democracy.

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

Yes, the democratic

00:27:22--> 00:27:30

way of reaching a result is probably they say democracy is the weakest form of government, but the strongest form of government as well.

00:27:34--> 00:27:41

But we've now seen that even that is not good enough to satisfy our Western masters. That's not even good enough.

00:27:42--> 00:28:02

We still get slaughtered by old people, at the hands of them at the hands of the Masters, which they made. And it's no secret that from Morocco, to Indonesia, most of the people who are in ruling now the most of the Muslims have been trained at West Point in America or in Britain.

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

So Cz was trained in West Point,

00:28:06--> 00:28:10

the ruler of a banker, what his name in Indonesia was trained in West Point.

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

Georgia, Jordan's King was trained in England.

00:28:14--> 00:28:18

So as Carter's new image was trained

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

in England,

00:28:21--> 00:28:25

most of them are trained in either Britain or in America are

00:28:26--> 00:28:30

trained to do many things. And we can see where the training comes.

00:28:31--> 00:28:36

And I can tell you, I lived in Egypt. I lived in Pakistan and know these two countries.

00:28:39--> 00:28:40

The armies

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

are totally diverse from the people.

00:28:45--> 00:28:49

armies in Egypt, Pakistan, the countries which I can talk about

00:28:50--> 00:28:58

the army, they have their own hospitals, their own factories, their own the housing estates. mehandi scene which is where I stayed at one particular time.

00:29:00--> 00:29:04

One of my neighbors was a general, you know that time in the 70s when I studied there,

00:29:06--> 00:29:11

they love to love foreigners because they speak English, they speak the American slang and so forth and so on. So

00:29:12--> 00:29:22

we had lots of friends amongst army people, and it was aid and invited us the morning, say demons come and fit in at my house. So of course, I was a student who is looking for a free meal.

00:29:25--> 00:29:37

So I thought, wow, Army General in South Africa will never even smell. The shoe of an homage isn't here. The guy's inviting me and my family and just being the wife at the time when we went a morning all dressed up, you know.

00:29:38--> 00:29:39

And,

00:29:40--> 00:29:45

and they all have in pants, mini palaces, you know, they're all the generals and living minipack in Pakistan.

00:29:46--> 00:29:51

And the first thing he offers me opens his wine cabinet and he asked me what I want whiskey. What What do I want?

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

I could imagine I come from South Africa come from a home My father was Nibbana come from a society we I mean, that time

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

It was completely taboo, you know, even to speak about it. You know, yeah, this man on a morning, he offers me whiskey.

00:30:09--> 00:30:34

So what does that tell you? That tells you that the training that they receive in America is not just about military training. They also outlaw the social, and one can understand how these people kill fellow Muslims thing. But how is it possible to kill the fellow Muslims as it possible? Yes, it's very possible. It's very possible. When you've changed your own outlook in life, your worldview has changed.

00:30:36--> 00:30:43

and other similar experience in Pakistan, very similar experience, also where a wine cabinet was opened, and it was offered.

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

And you think, Well, you know, I thought, well, you know, Pakistan is different, you know, you know,

00:30:53--> 00:31:02

it's because we have adapted, not only this narrative, the things we say the narrative, the speech, the word that we use.

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

And with that comes the culture and the understanding.

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

And so we have what we have today.

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

And therefore, it's a sad day

00:31:15--> 00:31:17

that we are in the position where we are.

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

I remember in the 60s,

00:31:27--> 00:31:29

when I was a member of the Muslim youth movement at the time,

00:31:31--> 00:31:33

we followed the Brotherhood,

00:31:34--> 00:31:44

the moms call was the call of the Brotherhood, we used to shout and scream, what has not been screamed to the Brotherhood in the in from 1926 onwards,

00:31:45--> 00:31:47

I'll call on the student.

00:31:53--> 00:32:00

And one can always see how the whole history of the one is being distorted.

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

How the only

00:32:04--> 00:32:10

objective of the one is being distorted. And I said, The last time I spoke about the Saudi King, and somebody was extremely upset.

00:32:11--> 00:32:37

And I was confirmed. Now, let's confirm the stance of Saudi Arabia. I didn't know at the time when I made my first goodbye on this issue. And I mentioned that. But in fact, the browser Brotherhood is banned in Saudi Arabia. The one muslimeen is bank, it's a bank organization. So one can understand the attitude that the Saudis and please You know, it's not about your king, please. This is about the whole system in Saudi Arabia.

00:32:39--> 00:32:46

The rotten system, so sorry, you're gonna send me another email. But I have to say it like I'm just like this year, I don't learn from my mistakes.

00:32:48--> 00:32:56

So rotten rotten system. Can you imagine that the person who is harder will Harmon Sorry, brother, few year

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

look after the two holy places,

00:33:01--> 00:33:08

makes a public statement to say that the army in Egypt has exercised maximum control in shooting all those people.

00:33:13--> 00:33:30

That he condones the killing of most unarmed Muslims by an army. I mean, you can compare protesters with an army. You can see what those people had guns, what are you talking about? You come with a tank, the guy comes with ak 47 you say, this is people who are shooting and

00:33:32--> 00:34:00

and you got f 16. You got helicopter gunships? And you have people with sniper rifles sitting on top of rooftops and you found the man and say to the army, General, you're doing Roman kill more to go in you with us. Not only that, I'll give you more money than Saudi Arabia. They've given the military government since it started now, what, two three weeks ago $12 billion, coming from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait. For what?

00:34:02--> 00:34:07

To keep Islam at bay. Nothing more, nothing less. Nothing more.

00:34:09--> 00:34:23

Because they realized a natural they pulled the plug on the Brotherhood rulership in it, they didn't give them Petro. They didn't give them money. They gave them nothing. They knew it was going to start a riot in the streets. Obviously it's going to do that. And now they pouring billions into Egypt

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

to do what

00:34:29--> 00:34:32

to make the military look as if they are the saviors of the people.

00:34:34--> 00:34:43

So what is the message thing for us? I have a very long goodbye today probably take me down to five o'clock so I have to try and cut it shorter but

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

so what is what is the message?

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

First of all, I have to tell you that this is what I do.

00:35:00--> 00:35:26

costura Ibrahim, but if I should give it another name, give it a name which which gives the center bill of this it is I will call it a wholesome three. And the other message of the whole country comes in Allah Allah said Allah tala k for dorabella homophone and Kelly Matan tequila Casa de Tinto Heba dabit firewalkers, summer two, Cola, cola Hayden Vitara, Bihar we have variable La

00:35:27--> 00:35:28

Casa La lomita

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

needless to say, this is my favorite surah in the Quran.

00:35:33--> 00:35:38

I think everybody's got favorites, you shouldn't have a favorite surah but just human so

00:35:39--> 00:35:43

so allows longer says, unless it's for the similitude

00:35:45--> 00:35:49

a method parable and allows them to compares

00:35:51--> 00:36:01

a good word or also a good word with a good three. What is the good word in the Abbas's the good word that Allah refers to is the word La ilaha illa Allah.

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

And the good three is the Muslim

00:36:06--> 00:36:35

is the Muslim who submits to the Kalam of La ilaha illAllah. And what does Allah say about this three, Allah says, this tree's roots is firmly fixed. That's why sometimes you want to look at the team you think, wow, these people are dying, you know. I mean, they sitting there in that Plaza, they in that maidin in Egypt, in necessity, and they know the armies coming, and they bring their children they bring their wives, anything these people What is wrong with these people? Why are they running for their lives?

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

Why not?

00:36:40--> 00:36:46

Because they realize and they know that their lives

00:36:47--> 00:36:50

and everything they have is dependent on allows Parata

00:36:51--> 00:36:58

and what they fight for today, generations will benefit from it. So allow us on and these are the people who

00:36:59--> 00:37:10

whom Allah talks about who says the good words and they are the they're the good trees. Now Allah says the branches reach to the heavens

00:37:11--> 00:37:54

reach the heavens to receive the mercy and the bark of a loss pinata. And Allah says these trees of these good Muslims, they bear fruit all the way through and Ibiza salamander asked Amara when they were sitting in company profits here. What do you think? What three is the salary first, and they all kept quiet and allows the profits at this three is is likened to the sutra to nephila. The date three never goes Brown, it's green winter, summer, spring, autumn, and against fruit routhier gives a date throughout the year, and that is a good Muslim. So all that sets forth parables for men, in order that they may receive admiration, in order that we may realize

00:37:57--> 00:38:05

that we must never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. Because sometimes you think, where's Allah? With?

00:38:06--> 00:38:29

What isn't true whatsoever protecting people in Syria and chomp? Why is Allah protecting the people? Allah says, never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoer is to Allah. Allah was aware of what they did it by the hood in Makkah to the Navy Salah, what they do, and I enjoy loot all the great battles that were fought Allah, Allah is the

00:38:30--> 00:38:38

one Ma Ma, Ma sha Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, when you shut your arrow you doing sudo Mohammed I shot arrow.

00:38:39--> 00:38:45

What does Allah say? Allah says I was on the battlefield. I am the I was never apps.

00:38:46--> 00:38:57

But Allah gives me despite Allah says, but I gave them despite the oppressors, and that those are tyrannized people that a day when the eyes will be fixed, wide open in horror and shock.

00:39:00--> 00:39:07

So you look at and you know, as I said, in the beginning here, light travels at 186,000 miles per second.

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

That's one of

00:39:12--> 00:39:16

the creation of a low spider and the speed at which Allah works.

00:39:25--> 00:39:33

And 10 years and 100 years and 200 years is nothing in life in in Divine time.

00:39:41--> 00:39:49

Somebody was saying the other day on the TV, I was looking at a program of stalagmites and stalactites and stalagmites and textile stuff that grow in gay caves.

00:39:51--> 00:39:51

Made of calcium.

00:39:54--> 00:39:58

The hanging from the roof of caves and the girl from the

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

and this man. This is

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

When asked this man, how long does this take to grow one of these colored minds?

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

This is maybe 100 years,

00:40:08--> 00:40:13

maybe 200 years. This is one now what about his own cave? This one's about 100 million years old.

00:40:16--> 00:40:17

One cave under the ground

00:40:19--> 00:40:23

100 million years old. So in a loss of life lifetime,

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

lots of things happen.

00:40:35--> 00:40:40

So that is the case with a Brotherhood in Egypt. That is the sacrifice those people are making.

00:40:42--> 00:40:45

And they're making that sacrifice because of one man who has never been

00:40:47--> 00:40:51

said to him, of course, as you know, as a member of the one he was hanged in prison by NASA.

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

So this is not something which

00:40:55--> 00:41:05

was the Brotherhood is not used as a temporary setback. A last one, the law tells us that he said but he said there are laws rather it says they plan.

00:41:07--> 00:41:10

Allah says even if a plan moves mountains,

00:41:11--> 00:41:13

never think Allah will break his pledge.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

When I think about this verse, I think about Afghanistan,

00:41:19--> 00:41:22

about how the US moved mountains,

00:41:23--> 00:41:24

to get to Osama bin Laden,

00:41:26--> 00:41:47

literally and figuratively, they moved mountains. They shot those missiles from the Gulf, right over the land, to lead in I think, or a boss or something like that. They destroy them. They lay flat in the mountains. Yala speaks about? Allah says, Allah will do their plotting even if they can move mountains.

00:41:49--> 00:42:03

So we should not think that this great giant of a nation called America or France or Germany all these places, they are not even worth the wing of a mosquito in the eyes of Allah.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

And allows

00:42:07--> 00:42:16

you to minoura hollow carrier capital Allah says that he will complete his light again light, even though the disbelievers may dislike it.

00:42:21--> 00:42:22

Allah says never think

00:42:24--> 00:42:33

foil attacks upon Allah La Lu Khalifa de Allah will never break is what is the promise, the promise he made to his messages in the lies isn't

00:42:35--> 00:42:44

really allows. tarantola is an Allah that can also take revenge. Man take advantage but a lot stronger can also take advantage

00:42:45--> 00:42:57

and allow SWOT analysis was tougher who will harbor kulu Jabari nannied, Allah says, Allah decides the destiny of nations and communities. And they Allah says the messengers of Allah sent

00:42:58--> 00:43:07

when they showed our help, every hardened tyrant came to grief. Where all the Titans today was for war.

00:43:09--> 00:43:15

Where's foster? Where's pw Botha? Where are these people? Where are they gone?

00:43:17--> 00:43:20

But we must understand that the GR that we fighting

00:43:22--> 00:43:24

does not only encompass

00:43:26--> 00:43:28

physical resistance

00:43:30--> 00:43:51

It is our our range of activities including inventiveness is jihad. Development is jihad. Construction is jihad. Construction on land on scene now despises Jihad and requires the landless and continuous struggle to protect how and affirm our freedom. What is Islam? What was the first thing in Islam came to do?

00:43:53--> 00:44:04

When the Prophet said I'm establishing his faith in Medina, what was the first thing he did was he said, The first item on the agenda of the Constitution of Medina was every man shall practice his faith in freedom.

00:44:08--> 00:44:12

We have a situation now that Muslims can't even practice they Islam in Islamic countries.

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

It's always been like that.

00:44:24--> 00:44:36

So May Allah so I'm going to give in Sharla that the struggles and the lives given and the sacrifices made by the mothers and the fathers and the children, particularly.

00:44:38--> 00:44:41

And the women in Syria, in Egypt,

00:44:42--> 00:44:43

in Tunisia,

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

in Morocco,

00:44:47--> 00:44:51

in Palestine, in Jordan, in a body scan in Saudi Arabia,

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

in Iraq, every way that there are Muslims. We know that whatever they do,

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

Whatever sacrifices they make, allows for how the law says, I am aware of it.

00:45:07--> 00:45:10

And allows Fonterra will deal with it in his own good time.

00:45:11--> 00:45:14

And allows mahanta law says he is the most just.

00:45:18--> 00:45:21

And all that is playing out my dear brothers in front of us on the television.

00:45:25--> 00:45:27

We must take lesson from it.

00:45:29--> 00:45:32

Very important, we must take lessons from it.

00:45:33--> 00:45:36

And the lesson we should take from it now is

00:45:38--> 00:45:39

that

00:45:42--> 00:45:45

we, as a community

00:45:46--> 00:45:48

cannot live in isolation

00:45:49--> 00:45:51

of the other communities in this country.

00:45:55--> 00:46:00

That young people should become more involved in the affairs,

00:46:01--> 00:46:07

whether it's municipal, or on national level or regional level, in the running of this country.

00:46:10--> 00:46:12

It pains me as a Muslim.

00:46:15--> 00:46:23

When I have to collect for Palestine, and for Syria, and for all these places, and my Navy stuffy,

00:46:25--> 00:46:29

painful to me, but I do it because people do Muslims, you know,

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

they're Muslims, these are black, non Muslim Christian people.

00:46:40--> 00:46:42

Because how will we establish

00:46:44--> 00:46:56

the kingdom of along the earth? If we exclude if we 2% of the population of this country, we exclude 98% of the people from our lives? How can we be successful?

00:46:58--> 00:47:01

How can we be successful if we exclude 98% of the people from our lives?

00:47:03--> 00:47:09

Don't you think the day's gonna come when they're gonna come to office and break down our doors and kill our children now watch us.

00:47:11--> 00:47:19

And we will have no defense. The only defense we will have is to arm ourselves to the teeth and to kill them.

00:47:21--> 00:47:25

And you know that you can kill so many people in the run under bullets and you can kill him.

00:47:32--> 00:47:32

When nobody

00:47:35--> 00:47:38

was asked by the Coptic patriarch of Egypt,

00:47:43--> 00:47:44

to send an army

00:47:46--> 00:47:49

to read them of the oppression of the Romans.

00:47:51--> 00:47:52

Listen to this passage about Egypt.

00:47:55--> 00:47:59

What was our instruction to the to the loss.

00:48:01--> 00:48:05

He said to American laws were being asked by the Egyptians

00:48:07--> 00:48:16

to free themselves from the oppression of the Romans and give you I'm sending you as General of this army via my instructions.

00:48:18--> 00:48:24

You will fight the Romans and you will defeat the Romans and you and your shoulders

00:48:26--> 00:48:30

will have an encampment which will be fenced in.

00:48:33--> 00:48:42

What did he mean? He said to him laws. They didn't ask you to bring Islam to Egypt. They asked you to liberate them from the Romans. And that is your brief.

00:48:43--> 00:48:45

You will not make any doubt

00:48:49--> 00:48:50

in today's age as a Muslim country,

00:48:53--> 00:48:56

the Romans and there's a story I heard in my Italian days, you know.
