00:01:02--> 00:01:06

I've said a few weeks ago that

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

I would like to speak on the

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

topic of

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

dice.

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

No dice is

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

dice.

00:01:26--> 00:01:37

No, dice. All of you know what dice means. But nobody knows what that is. That's just simple. Every single one of you knows what that is or who that is.

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

Obviously, you don't listen to the news very well.

00:01:44--> 00:01:47

on Al Jazeera, I'm not I'm not advertising on

00:01:49--> 00:01:49

the eyes,

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

is the Arabic acronym

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

for ISIS.

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

Arabic acronym for ISIS stands for

00:02:01--> 00:02:10

a dolla Islamia. See, Al Iraq was shut down the Islamic State in

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

Iraq and Syria.

00:02:15--> 00:02:32

We know it is isolated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. We also know it as ISIS, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And we now know it as, namely,

00:02:34--> 00:02:42

ice spell pious, meaning the Islamic State, the newspapers have taken up all the rest, and have left us now with

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

lace to eat. And they call it the Islamic State.

00:02:50--> 00:03:13

And I said I wouldn't talk about it until I have a clear idea of what it is about where it comes from, why it was established, what are the aims and objectives of ISIS and so forth and so on. Al Hamdulillah, maybe today, I will be able to throw more light in Sharla on this very important very topical, and subject which I think is comes to the mind of all of us.

00:03:14--> 00:03:18

Now, the two countries that is involved in this

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

organization, or movement,

00:03:22--> 00:03:35

or guerrilla movement, or jihadi movement, as somebody would some people would call it is, of course, Iraq and Syria. These are the two concern countries where ISIS or ISIL, or Islamic State operates.

00:03:36--> 00:03:49

In the broader geopolitical situation in the Middle East, of course, we know that because of the politics, there are some strange bedfellows and they say politics makes very strange bedfellows. Right,

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

we can see now in Parliament,

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

the kind of big fallacy to have in the opposition in our own parliament.

00:03:57--> 00:04:13

And violence. Of course, it's everywhere, every now in Parliament. So you know, we shouldn't over over put more stress or violence and what necessarily, it becomes. The situation in the Middle East has brought together bedfellows of United States of America.

00:04:14--> 00:04:28

Saudi Arabia, of course, which is a biggest state in the area, very, very big state, more more desert than anything else. But from a geographic point of view, extremely large state and in Kuwait supports America, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Oman,

00:04:29--> 00:04:37

and holistic Center came to a great extent Egypt and to a lesser extent Pakistan. Then of course, we have the great supporters of

00:04:39--> 00:04:45

the United States in the Middle East, of course, which is Israel, that is our neighbor, Jordan, and Jordan. You can't blame God, it's only expertise.

00:04:48--> 00:04:58

What? What is Jordan's main export? Georgia's main export is bananas. It's not a banana republic. I wouldn't say that. I'm saying that the main export of Jordan is is bananas.

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

If you visit Jordan, you'll find that the Jordan Jordanian dinar is the most expensive country, most expensive currency now.

00:05:10--> 00:05:15

I think when I was there some years ago, one to Damien dinar was equal to three American dollars.

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

And what are they export bananas.

00:05:20--> 00:05:23

America gave them between four and $6 billion a year.

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

slavery,

00:05:27--> 00:05:33

gift present, they have the strongest peace treaty with Israel. Okay, so that's Jordan,

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

opposed to this

00:05:37--> 00:05:42

group of anti ISIS nations, of course, is Syria.

00:05:43--> 00:06:01

And the nation of Iran for many reasons other than being Shia. There is, of course, the whole question of whether they would be allowed to have nuclear weapons and so forth and so on. And the old enmity is between the Shia and the Sunni is in that part of the world, particularly between Saudi Arabia, and the Shia of Accra.

00:06:03--> 00:06:17

And now that Iraq is also aligned to Iran, because Iraq has now now has a majority Shia parliament. And it is squarely in the camp of Iran. It is it is controlled by Iran.

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

And

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

ISIS, of course,

00:06:24--> 00:06:37

is aligned is non aligned. And ISIS has taken over probably a third of the territory of Iraq. So it's a great place. Basically, it's a it's a great place.

00:06:38--> 00:06:46

And the Arab Spring, of course, has added to this mess. All those revolutions have brought about only one new

00:06:48--> 00:07:08

kind of government in the Middle East, which is Tunis here, oh, that was a fail. In Egypt, it failed with a counter revolution. In Yemen, it's continuous strife and struggle in Syria, it's a destruction of our country, it's been really a mess. So when we look at that part of the world, we look at it with, with trepidation with a lot of anxiety

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

with a lot of worry as to what the future holds for the core of the Muslim lands.

00:07:15--> 00:07:28

Now, when the newspapers report in ISIS, the first thing they say, America, whatever the new our newspapers and newspapers of the world, wherever you travel in the world, one word comes across ISIS is an international threat.

00:07:29--> 00:07:33

a threat to nobody says they don't say too, they just say it's a threat.

00:07:34--> 00:08:07

And I would say that, of course, all the reporting about ISIS is out of context is no context given to ISIS, or themselves. So these are very bad people. They extremely bad people, they kill other people, they decapitate people, they hang people, they exclude people. And you know, they want to use very old, very draconic laws of Islam and so forth and so on. So they're very bad people. And because they're very bad people, they have to be eliminated. Like Obama said, we have to destroy ISIS, something which he never said before, or any other American president for that matter. I said,

00:08:09--> 00:08:13

Obama said, we will destroy ISIS.

00:08:14--> 00:08:27

So nobody asked me questions. We said, Can we read the paper and they chose the photograph of somebody being shot at some journalists shame. It's a shame in working with these people. Why are they why are they doing this? Are they Muslim or they're not Muslim?

00:08:28--> 00:08:37

It's like Glock. Locke was a great philosopher, European philosophy in the 16th century. And he was saying at one time, why are Christians killing Christians?

00:08:38--> 00:09:08

And the Jews in the same in the first century after Christ, a very solid set of Sallam said the same thing about him. The Jews of Jerusalem, were killing each other inside Jerusalem was the Romans one the outside. So every religious grouping, at least the three monotheistic religions of the world, has gone through this period of turmoil, period of revolution, and I'll come back to that. When I discuss the views of the Chief Rabbi of England. We'll come back to that inshallah right at the end.

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

So what is the context of ISIS?

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

Where do we place it?

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

ISIS is

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

the result

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

of

00:09:28--> 00:09:35

centuries old, very bitter struggle between people of different identities in the Middle East.

00:09:37--> 00:09:42

To give you an example of where ISIS originated, Iraq, Iraq is three separate

00:09:44--> 00:09:57

groups, or nations rather, the Shia, whose identity is Shiism, the Sudanese whose identities Sunni Islam, and the Kurds, whose identities Kurdish

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

and many, I mean, if you go

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

throughout the Middle East, you look at Africa, you look at South Africa, we have the Zulus, and cause us and the this and that, and the colors and the whites and the Indians and all of us Mashallah, this big rainbow nation. And lots of the problems that we have is because of the rainbow nation, because we are a multicultural, multi ethnic society, and most of the wars. I mean, if you look at Congo,

00:10:21--> 00:10:25

I mean, they talk such a lot about ISIS in the Middle East, but you know, in Congo,

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

what

00:10:30--> 00:10:42

they say about 5 million people were massacred in the northern part of Congo by by the forces of of surrounding Uganda and some of the other countries. And because there's an ethnic conflict between the Hutus and the

00:10:44--> 00:10:47

Tutsis, again, ethnic differences.

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

But most of these multi ethnic states

00:10:59--> 00:11:12

were not created by Muslims. In fact, they were not created bungs. So ISIS came into the situation, ISIS found itself in this crisis of so many identities, occupying the same space.

00:11:16--> 00:11:27

Again, I repeat Taliban was not the cause of the problem in Iraq, as it is at the moment like the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Taliban emerged in 1994.

00:11:28--> 00:12:06

And the war in Iraq started in 1978, rather, but the Russians, so called the Taliban didn't call the Afghan war as you were made to believe in the American press, that the Taliban was the enemy. Taliban didn't start the war. Taliban came back late 1994. It was born from the circumstances in which he loved the African National Congress came into being and didn't stop the racial conflict in this country, he came into the conflict and try to work itself in terms of its mandate by the majority of black people in this country to bring about revolution and democracy in South Africa.

00:12:09--> 00:12:32

ISIS emerged last year 2013 it's very late, I mean, only came last year. And the war in Iraq started in 2003. So I suddenly thought and he was the result of the major war. And the war in Syria started in 2011. So as soon as a new a new boy on the block, new new come to the conflict in that part of the world.

00:12:33--> 00:12:42

He has ISIS in a very short period of time, alarmingly very short period of time with a maze, the whole world took over a very large swath of territory.

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

I was hoping to have the

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

overhead projector today because it's very important to show in America, but I'll try and explain to you

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

It took over territory, mainly desert, of course,

00:12:58--> 00:13:21

to the northwest, now, Iraq is divided, basically, after the Americans destroyed it. It was divided into three, one can say states, the Shia state, which is around Baghdad, then to the northwest, you have the Sudanese, then to have towards the north east, you have the Kurds, so three separate areas.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

And

00:13:27--> 00:14:00

the ISIS took over the whole of the Sunni area, when we come to now why they so quickly, were able to do that. Not only that, they broke down the borders between Syria and Iraq, they cross the borders, they cross the border, they broke the law. They destroyed the board itself. They said there's going to be no border between between Iraq and Syria. And they took over that part of the southern part of Syria, but the part of city which he took over his rainy days, the tech part of the world, my dear brothers, is mainly is mainly desert.

00:14:01--> 00:14:13

So the breaking down of the border was very significant for ISIS. And I'll tell you later why it was very significant viruses. So what is the goal of this group of people? What do they want?

00:14:15--> 00:14:27

That's very important, because it seems as if nobody knows what they want, seem as if they just want to kill and kill and kill. Nobody knows what they want. They want to establish what is called an Islamic State.

00:14:29--> 00:14:36

Meaning a state, which is envisioned in a classical Islamic law.

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

What that state is.

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

In the modern world, nobody knows.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

They want a classical Islamic State. And the first person who wrote a book on how an Islamic state should be run was a man called Alma de oro, aka misophonia

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

More than 1000 years ago, you wrote this book

00:15:06--> 00:15:39

and set up the governance of Islamic State, the separation of the executive, separation of the judiciary and so forth and so on. But the book was written not reflecting the state of the Muslim states on the ground. But it was more to eat this whole time, because two thirds of the time, including all the Ottoman emperors, they were all governing as autocrats. They all made law by decree, because there were no constitutions. There were no Parliament's, they will know Bill of Rights and so forth and so on.

00:15:41--> 00:15:49

So ISIS wants to establish not just an Islamic State, but they want to establish a Sunni Islamic State.

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

This is very important

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

to say Mashallah, we also nice.

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

All right.

00:16:08--> 00:16:13

They want to establish it's not just any Sunni Islamic State, they will establish a Sunni Islamic State,

00:16:15--> 00:16:20

associated with the mother hub of Imam Ahmed in humble.

00:16:22--> 00:16:28

humble, as you know, is a mother, which is one of the last of the form of Arab recognized by all the Sunni schools of thought.

00:16:29--> 00:16:52

But the mother of the humble, or the philosophy of hammer, which was handed down to me, Tamia, handed down to his student nikka him, finally went to Imam, Muhammad, Abdullah hub in Saudi Arabia, and reflected in the philosophy and teachings of the Salafi movement. So they call Salafis.

00:17:00--> 00:17:03

This is the kind of state they want to establish.

00:17:06--> 00:17:30

And it's very clear that they don't want to establish a state in the whole of the world. No, they want to establish a state only in the Muslim world. So all the Ico but they come into New York, and they come into Europe. And they come into this role, just baloney. That's all just for the arms merchants to supply more arms, to all the parties involved into the Americans and so forth. But we'll come back to that.

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

And

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

they want to break down the boundaries between the states in the Middle East.

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

Now,

00:17:43--> 00:17:50

and this angered the Americans, Americans really angry at ISIS breaking down the boundary between Iraq and Syria.

00:17:52--> 00:18:04

Because when the Americans conquered Iraq in 2003, not only did they overthrow as they said, they're gonna overthrow Saddam Hussein. No, they destroyed the whole country, they destroyed.

00:18:06--> 00:18:21

The ruling party was completely destroyed, the army was completely disbanded, two police forces completed disbanded. Now, administration of Iraq was completely disbanded. There was no vestige of any kind of administration, the day the Americans left Iraq.

00:18:24--> 00:18:49

The people, the Iraqis had to take matters into their own hands in order to make up a state. And this led to three states, as I said, in the beginning, the Kurdish state, the Shia state, around Baghdad. So all those bombings that you see on the TV, all those car bombings, those are all in Baghdad, or in the Shia area, there are no Sudanese living there anymore, the shinies have all left Baghdad, or living to the north,

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

next to the crude district.

00:18:53--> 00:18:58

And finally, the third stage was of course, the could be set in the north east of Iraq,

00:19:00--> 00:19:01

and the Sudanese.

00:19:03--> 00:19:22

In fact, there was also in fact, the Sudanese were left out the Kurds established a state in the Shia, Sunni they were left with no state at all. They were left with nothing. They were told you are the minority you root for so long, there's nothing more for you. You just have to knuckle under. And you have to take the laws and rules of the of the shear state.

00:19:25--> 00:19:48

Now, let me go a little bit back in history, because it's important for us as Muslims, because that is the opposite of Islam. That is the Arabian Peninsula, which Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam spoke about many a hadith about the Arabian Peninsula, the Muslim state of the Arabian Peninsula, that part of the world the Middle East, was one single state.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Before 1924 there was no Iraq and no this and know that. They were all once out there in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is a creation of the Saudis

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

And,

00:20:05--> 00:20:42

of course, then we know because of the sex because the agreement that was signed by the Russians and the French and the English in, in France in 1916, they took just the rating. And they decided, well, France wanted this little piece. And he was like, you have 10 plots of ground and five hours, you call it all together, say which one was this house, and you give that out to that house, and you give this plot of grant to that child, they did the same. In the absence of all this, they just drew lines, they made Iraq and they made France on the Syria, and Britain wanted Iraq and a part of China and Palestine, and Jordan, and so forth, and so on. And, and, and the whole area was covered. So

00:20:42--> 00:20:53

what does this mean? This means that all those identities and tribes and nations that will then now add to sway loyalty to somebody else, because they were put into a state.

00:20:54--> 00:21:00

Before there was no state, everybody felt that they swore allegiance and allegiance and loyalty to the halifa.

00:21:01--> 00:21:05

No, the Arabs are very tribal, like the Africans are very tribal.

00:21:06--> 00:21:20

even up to today, they very proud of the tribe, of their families and the ancestry. And was would break up because of differences between these tribes and lo and and families.

00:21:21--> 00:21:36

So now the British and Americans and well, not America, or the British and the French, particularly and the Russians, divided this to throw line split families, split societies, split ethnic groups, and so forth and so on.

00:21:38--> 00:22:12

So ISIS came along and said, Look, we have nothing the she has devastated. The Kurds devastate. Everybody has a state, but we have been left out in the cold is very true in that part of the world. So they want to they decided that they are going to establish a state to protect the Sudanese and explain to you what kind of Sudanese they believe in, mainly to protect the Arabs who needs of that part of the world, the center of the Arabian Peninsula. And they want to establish a state eventually over the whole area, meaning they want to destroy the boundaries that separate the Muslims in that part of the world.

00:22:14--> 00:22:18

Just like the Taliban wanted to do in Afghanistan, unlike al Qaeda.

00:22:20--> 00:22:32

There's a big difference between ISIS and Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda, reflect reflects exactly for those of you who have done some history, the struggle between Stalin and Trotsky.

00:22:35--> 00:22:50

During the during the First World War, Stalin and Trotsky you heard of the Trotskyites in the standard next, Stalin was of the opinion and after the revolution after they overthrew the Shah, the shots out of the tea is of course not the ones followed in the SH.

00:22:51--> 00:23:00

Standard believe that communism should be built up in the Soviet Union, whereas Trotsky believed now the revolution should be exported.

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

And so Mashallah, we have our own Communist Party, who's more capitalist than all the communists combined with

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

al Qaeda was like Trotsky,

00:23:17--> 00:23:26

a guy that said, we will export Islamic revolution to the rest of the world, whether it's to America or England, or Britain, or France or North Africa, we will export it.

00:23:27--> 00:23:35

As this is not available to exported, we want to just establish a Muslim state for Sudanese in this part in the Arabian Peninsula.

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

So what else is he saying we have just taken out the struggle for the Sudanese who have no homeland.

00:23:47--> 00:24:10

And we want to establish what is called a nation state for Sunni Muslims. So they expanded very quickly, of course, in the Sunni areas. So the only part of Iraq immediately accepted this. And that is why the expansion was so Swift. Because as soon as that if you understand this is tight for us, we can just support you. And similarly, the Sunni Sunni in Syria, who was being oppressed by the Shia in Syria.

00:24:14--> 00:24:20

And the plight of refugees that the newspapers talk about in Iraq is known because of ISIS.

00:24:21--> 00:24:34

They've been refugees getting out of Iraq, right before ISIS. In fact, today, there's only point 5% Christians left point, they were two and a half percent of the population. They all emigrated before ISIS before 2013.

00:24:36--> 00:24:40

So if you see a church maybe being bombed is probably known Christians around there at all.

00:24:41--> 00:24:47

Christians have completely left. They were very small community, the parts which they lived in, in Iraq.

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

And you find that way ISIS are taken over and surprisingly you find if you look at read that the areas which they conquer

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

became very safe. Administration ran.

00:25:05--> 00:25:11

People started with the thought of any job tougher than song. Because very easy. They were really doing what they were doing.

00:25:13--> 00:25:18

So rather than ISIS with enforcing it was their way of life, they were Muslims their way of life.

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

So all the propaganda that we hear about ISIS is really just what it is

00:25:26--> 00:25:52

overrated propaganda, and they say, you know, ISIS got some say they take 50,000 strong, some says that 25,000 strong, but they're about 5000 strong. They're not a very busy guerrilla force. They don't have airplanes, and they've maybe stolen some tanks from the Americans. And so they have no heavy weapons. They just a guerrilla force, but they're taken over territory, where people will press and they came as liberators. And that is why they have been so successful.

00:26:00--> 00:26:01

The violence against the Shia

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

can be expected.

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

But it's expected within a context.

00:26:11--> 00:26:13

Why is ISIS fighting the Shia?

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

And why is the war violence between the two?

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

It's because when the Americans left Iraq,

00:26:29--> 00:26:39

there was a process of ethnic cleansing in Baghdad, the she has started killing the Sudanese in Baghdad, because they were Sunni.

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

And the Chinese were driven out of work that

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

they were the rulers initially.

00:26:50--> 00:27:02

And the casualties inflicted by ISIS at the moment is insignificant compared to the injuries or to the deaths, which was caused by the United States when they occupied Iraq.

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

In the United States occupied Iraq, they said more than a million people massacred more than a million people. We're not talking about the 500,000 babies, who are malformed and malnourished in the time of Saddam Hussein, because of the sanctions in place against Iran. Apart from that a million people died.

00:27:30--> 00:27:36

This Civil War was not initiated by ISIS. It was initiated by the United States of America.

00:27:38--> 00:27:45

So ISIS has got no novel, philosophy. There's nothing new to put on the table.

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

And what they put out

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

on the media,

00:27:54--> 00:28:00

because they're also good propagandists is to provoke the Americans to attack them.

00:28:01--> 00:28:02

Why?

00:28:04--> 00:28:19

Whatever they do, in terms of propaganda is to provoke the Americans. Why? Because if the Americans bomb them, they gain legitimacy, legitimacy amongst the Sudanese of that part of the world. Because if America is your enemy, then you have a lot of friends in the Middle East.

00:28:24--> 00:28:25

So

00:28:30--> 00:28:38

the more America attacks ISIS, the greater the legitimacy amongst the Arabs faces, the greater the support.

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

And it also shows up clearly

00:28:45--> 00:28:47

the confusion

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

in American foreign policy.

00:28:54--> 00:29:04

If we look at the read, not even between the lines, if you just read the newspapers, you'll find that the Americans have alienated all the Arabs on the ground. Nobody likes America in the Middle East.

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

I think not even the Israelis like the America

00:29:12--> 00:29:43

that alienated the Sunnis in Iraq and the Shia also in Iraq and in Iran for many reasons. In Lebanon, they've alienated the government of Syria. Turkey doesn't like them turkey doesn't want to take ISIS now tell you why turkey doesn't want to take ISIS because take his main goal, which was supposed to be the goal of the of the, the European nations was to remove acid definitely with acid so Turkey's coffees actually angry with the West so Turkey is not going to cooperate with America.

00:29:45--> 00:29:51

So there's a lot of underground in the Muslim countries, a lot of anger

00:29:52--> 00:29:55

and resentment towards the towards the United States.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

People are also saying you could bomb ISIS but you couldn't bomb

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

In Syria, you couldn't bomb half the lesson.

00:30:05--> 00:30:13

And a lot of people actually believe that I think this is just a conspiracy theory that America actually started ISIS.

00:30:17--> 00:30:40

Because there was a column they do not sending any arms. Now do you know they start wars all over the place, and also the people believe they're about to re occupy. And maybe that is some truth in that, because Americans are sending people who are sending 1000 advisors, another 1000 advisors and another 1000 advisors. So this is reoccupation re colonization of Muslim lands.

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

So

00:30:46--> 00:30:52

we know that Saudi Arabia, actually salted ISIS. This is the fact there's no speculation.

00:30:55--> 00:30:57

But why did Saudi Arabia start ISIS?

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

Because

00:31:02--> 00:31:14

Saudi Arabia, the biggest Sunni force in the Middle East wanted to counter the Shia, in both in Iraq and in Syria. Why? Because the Shia were not in control of the major oil fields in Iraq,

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

in competition with the Saudis.

00:31:20--> 00:31:27

So they provided shouldn't be fighters, both in theory and in Iraq. And you may know this without even up to today.

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

adjusted ISIS took those arms and went the old way.

00:31:34--> 00:31:38

And take it doesn't want to want to intervene because ISIS wants to overthrow

00:31:39--> 00:31:55

half is Alaska, and they also want to overthrow Alaska. That's why when this whole attack was on that village, just on the border, they refused to intervene, they didn't want to intervene. The reason they don't intervene was they didn't want to weaken ISIS in the attack on half his asset.

00:31:58--> 00:32:11

So what are the real goals? Why, why does he keep doing this? Why can you just stay away and let them sort of the focus hasn't been the best thing to do is for them to have sorted out the problems on their own, first of all, the American foreign policy or other

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

homeland policy,

00:32:14--> 00:32:17

or without to frighten its own populations.

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

And in Europe,

00:32:21--> 00:32:45

not to question the Masters to see what ISIS is doing, you know, they, they're shooting our journalists tomorrow isn't coming to parents, and they're gonna come to London and come to New York and they're gonna start berating us and all that kind of nonsense. And also in May the opposition in these countries, make them compliant see what's happening in the world, we must have a strong army, they have to bomb these people must have an alliance. And finally,

00:32:47--> 00:32:52

to provide the world will look looking for arms.

00:32:53--> 00:33:03

The the the the the forum to see how the arms are being successfully employed in the Middle East so they could sell more cars, you know, capitalism is dying.

00:33:04--> 00:33:10

Capitalism is in the throes of death, those of you read, America's economy is going like this.

00:33:12--> 00:33:24

And on it'll go right down Sharla and not because I don't like America, because I don't like Israel, because of America goes then a capex of dominance. All those other countries individually is possible.

00:33:25--> 00:33:37

So those are the reasons America is purely there for two things. One is for the oil and that we all know take money as a forum to display the future so they can sell more arms to Saudi Arabia to Egypt and so forth and so on.

00:33:44--> 00:33:51

My time is limited today the students are writing exam so I'm talking really fast and I see Mashallah you listening so I can ask you some questions. I'm sure you have listened very well.

00:33:53--> 00:33:56

I'm not gonna do it. I don't have time. But on the end of by

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

by talking a little bit about

00:34:06--> 00:34:09

I took about a two Sundays ago, I alluded to a two Sundays ago at the haka.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

And I think, Lord, I would I would

00:34:14--> 00:34:24

share the information with you. The EX Chief Rabbi of, of England wasn't of New York to save England. name is Jonathan Jonathan sacks.

00:34:25--> 00:34:34

He was interviewed by a reporter and this was reported in the very old magazine first, it was a newspaper, The Spectator is printed in London.

00:34:39--> 00:34:53

This chief rabbis is an academic. And he studies the world situation. He's an academic and he looks at the whole situation from time to time. And he gives lectures on how he looks at the world and how he sees the world.

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

And one of the questions that he was asked by the reporter was, what is the future of reading

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

religion in the world is the future for religion in the world. And the rabbi says, Well,

00:35:07--> 00:35:36

those Doomsday prophets that says Legion is going out is wrong. She's the dominant view that the religion is, is going to be eliminated. It's impossible because he says, if you look at the middle class today, where do they where do they want to send their kids which schools? They want to send the kids to faith based schools? Why? Because they believe they the ethics are better there. In fact, my daughter was telling me yesterday that there are two doctors from UCT, who was arguing with each other as to whether she put the kids in bishops who are the Slavia

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

mister.

00:35:39--> 00:35:47

But the question where you put your job depends where you come from. But this is a big this is the big discussion, I think, in our community. Where do you put your child?

00:35:49--> 00:36:06

And where we put our children? It's always a question of the ethics of the school, the face of the school? What will happen to the character of the Muslim character of my child? That is the biggest question that we need to answer. So the Anthony said that that is going to happen. And he says

00:36:07--> 00:36:09

that he predicted

00:36:10--> 00:36:19

the civil war that was going to happen amongst Muslims, particularly in the Arab world, in the Muslim world. And this is why I predicted it, because

00:36:21--> 00:36:30

both Judaism and Christianity went through the same struggle, the same revolution. And I refer to it before, in the 16th century in Europe,

00:36:31--> 00:36:46

Christians are killing Christians, and they went through this. And in Jerusalem in the first century, after Christ, they went through the same revolution, Jews were killing Jews. And he says, They sorted it out, eventually, in the division of the church and the state.

00:36:47--> 00:36:54

While eventually they decided power three, one site in the region was the other side, power go to the politicians in the army,

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

and region must stay in the church.

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

And he says,

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

at the end of all the turmoil in Islam in the Islamic world, we have to decide which road we want to take.

00:37:10--> 00:37:21

Because we can't take that road. Because that road is not an Islamic road, Islam says with integrated faith, Muhammad wa salam was both the political head

00:37:22--> 00:37:42

of the Muslims in Medina and also the military in general. He laid the walls and he was, so it was as is no dichotomy. There's no breakage, there's no black and white, we have gray, everything is joined. Because everything is subject to one load all law, Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the question was asked,

00:37:44--> 00:37:48

but what if this is going to happen in the Muslim world? Why do the Muslims are going to separate

00:37:49--> 00:37:50

their religion from the government?

00:37:53--> 00:38:02

In case I answered the question says, what are your thoughts? What do you think is gonna be the end? for Christians and Jews? The end? was they separated completely?

00:38:04--> 00:38:08

is the same as going to be for Muslims. And he said, this was his answer.

00:38:10--> 00:38:18

He said, if you look at Christianity, they are not saying they're not my perspective. This is his perspective. This has to do with Christianity.

00:38:19--> 00:38:21

If you look at today's and he says,

00:38:22--> 00:38:27

the leader of today's and Moses failed. He says Moses failed.

00:38:29--> 00:38:35

He says, When Moses never reached the River Jordan, Moses never reached the promised land. He saw the Jordan River and he died

00:38:37--> 00:38:43

within reach the promised land Islam, and Christianity is the leader of Christianity was also a failure.

00:38:45--> 00:38:55

Because in his view, says because when Jesus was on the cross, what is the last words that he uttered? You said, he Li Li, Lama, Sebastiani? You said,

00:38:57--> 00:39:09

Oh, my God, why has thou forsaken me? Such a failure? That's a statement of a man who has failed. Look at me, I'm so sick, because we know that we know that we have our own interpretation of that.

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

Then he says,

00:39:13--> 00:39:18

if we look at the history of Muhammad, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu wa sallam,

00:39:19--> 00:39:24

what do we find? We find that when the light of easily shown

00:39:25--> 00:39:32

on Mohammed, Salah lava lamp, he died, the most successful leader that ever lived.

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

This is the words of sometimes you have to take the truth, you know from your enemies.

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

He says this was the chief rabbi says this was the end of Muhammad Ali.

00:39:46--> 00:39:50

And this is mainly because of the failure of the two previous leaders,

00:39:51--> 00:39:54

which I don't agree with. That is why the fates split

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

and i divided life into

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

secular and religious. And he says,

00:40:04--> 00:40:28

mainly because of the success of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam both as a political leader. And as a religious leader, Muslims will come back and join Muslims are not split. He says, and he says I hope it's going to happen is I hope that Islam and Muslims will retain their faith in its complete form. And the application of exchange in its complete form.

00:40:32--> 00:40:33

And I've said a lot today

00:40:35--> 00:40:37

to talk about because that's the whole idea, I think of Joomla.

00:40:39--> 00:40:44

Joomla, could be enough for you to agree with me Joomla could cause you to go home and to argue with your wife.

00:40:50--> 00:40:57

My objective of my job is never so people say, Oh, nice lecture, no objective of my goodbyes to say, I don't agree with him.

00:40:59--> 00:41:03

So that we can have discussion, especially a wife and say, that's an agreement. She doesn't

00:41:04--> 00:41:07

mean nice and long a week of discussion in your home.

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

So

00:41:10--> 00:41:13

and I want to say in the last three minutes, which I have,

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

that I

00:41:17--> 00:41:29

having read and of course, a lot of you have read the history of Islam. No, that allows our analysis lattakia to be Rahmatullah.

00:41:30--> 00:41:40

Do not despair of the hope and the mercy of alone, when we look at the world that there is a way this language with our children, you know, so many things are happening in the world.

00:41:41--> 00:41:46

Remember, allows for 100 control of the world, not ISIS, not America.

00:41:48--> 00:41:56

And remember that Islam has gone through worse than this image history. worse. When the Mongols came and destroyed Baghdad,

00:41:57--> 00:42:12

when the waters of the Tigris and Euphrates are flowing with blood, and the ink of the books that the mogul threw in the name, he became Muslim. We know the wars between Ali and I shall the ones on the other side. We know all the atrocities have taken place.

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

But we also know

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

that despite all that,

00:42:21--> 00:42:26

for 30, more than 30 more than 1400 years Islam ruled the world.

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

Have you forgotten

00:42:29--> 00:42:34

that 1400 years we ruled the world, we were the masters of the world.

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

That only changed in 1924. At the fall of the Ottoman Empire, we've been in the state of limbo only for about 100 years, which is a very short period of time.

00:42:45--> 00:42:49

Out of 41,400 years 100 is nothing

00:42:52--> 00:43:04

to cleansing. Okay, just 100 so don't understand we have a family law. I'm not saying I don't know when they are meant to be. But there's lots of options offered by vitamin C loop.

00:43:06--> 00:43:10

My lots of water muscle flow under the bridge and in Sharla

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

allows for handler promise as

00:43:15--> 00:43:24

that if we believe in him and put our trust in him. Then all we have at the end of success in this world in the after.

00:43:25--> 00:43:26

But it comes at a price

00:43:30--> 00:43:35

allows founder a tells us in the Quran so many verses Do you think I'm going to put you on the duty or not test you.

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

These are tests from our last panel.

00:43:40--> 00:43:46

Now last I'm going to give that those of the frontline of the test. We are not really at the frontline. We have our own tests here in this country,

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

as minorities, but those people who are there fighting and struggling, dying.

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

We look at Syria for example of winter's coming

00:43:58--> 00:44:00

and in in Palestine,

00:44:01--> 00:44:02

the oppression

00:44:03--> 00:44:06

it makes you angry but

00:44:07--> 00:44:08

on the other hand,

00:44:10--> 00:44:11

we know that every martyr

00:44:14--> 00:44:14

fight

00:44:17--> 00:44:23

to regain his land or his honor or his property or to defend his faith.

00:44:24--> 00:44:29

What is the reward? The waist will tell you 70 women in the

00:44:30--> 00:44:32

70 hoodies in general

00:44:33--> 00:44:36

every marketer profited from said

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

we'll be able to take with him 70 of his family members.

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

So when he is now destroys a home

00:44:49--> 00:44:51

or kills this eye Mater.

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

They have a celebration.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

They invite the neighbors to come and have cake and tea in their home.

00:45:01--> 00:45:09

Why because they understand the deed. They know that that person who passed away will be able to take 70 of his family members.

00:45:12--> 00:45:14

So May Allah squander given Charla that we

00:45:15--> 00:45:19

that we look at history from the perspective of the Quran and Sunnah

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

and that we always need to offer those people and we understand correctly

00:45:26--> 00:45:29

what is happening in the world so we don't say

00:45:33--> 00:45:34

that there is no hope.

00:45:35--> 00:45:37

Or that we don't say America is doing the right thing.

00:45:38--> 00:45:40

When people say we're overwhelmed,

00:45:42--> 00:45:43

I mean, the Jordanian First Lady,

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

Queen tonight. So no.

00:45:49--> 00:45:55

She was she had an interview with that she was saying that, oh, we must destroy ISIS and nothing dead.

00:45:56--> 00:46:04

And I think many Muslims are saying that as well. There is a there is a question from the AXA foundation. They have these booklets.

00:46:05--> 00:46:18

Every booklet is 100 grand and it's towards medicines for the people of Gaza. So if you want to purchase one of these booklets, I think it'll be available in Sharla after the summer

00:46:19--> 00:46:23

well out illallah wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
