When I was a villa Himanshu fusina amin say, Molina
de la firma De La Hoya de la de la,
la la la la la la sharika Ala Moana shadow Ana Mohammed Abu or a solo salvaterra he was Allahu alayhi wa early he was happy woman died without What did he lie? We didn't abide, you know, brothers and sisters in Islam. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
The last time we met, I spoke to you about the promised victory that allow Spinal Tap has given to this oma Mohamed Salah, and the final victory of Islam in sha Allah.
And today I want to focus
on the revival of Islam in the world
and what is required for that revival.
What are the ingredients? What do we need in order for us to reach the stage which allows pound Allah has promised us and I want to do it by giving you a few illustrations
from the Quran. Of course, these illustrations are well known to you, I just want to repeat it, so that I will be reminded you will be reminded, and the first illustration is the illustration of the mother of Nabil moosari salat wa salam. And I'm sure you're well aware of the
incident where you're out at a dream, he dreamt that the boy will be born in Egypt.
And this child will be the cause of his downfall and the downfall of his kingdom. In fact, this child will cause his death as well. And he consulted and the dream said that the child will be born from the children of Bani Israel, who he was enslaving at the time, as you all know, and he consulted his soothsayers and these magicians and they will say to him, that you should kill all the children born in that particular year, all the male children should be killed as allowes Allah says in Surah Baqarah verse 49, you have to back
us up before knaben our home, Luna. Lisa allows Pamela says, and he killed all their sons, any enslaved all the women. So this was the process through which fear around thought that he could stymie the plans of Allah subhanho wa Taala he issued a decree and
it was carried out
except that the mother of Nabil Mousavi, Salah was pregnant at the time, and she had consumed the pregnancy by the grace and mercy of Allah, Allah because Allah had great plans for the one that she was carrying in the womb. But she was very concerned as to what she should do with the child. Oh, that she was pregnant then the child was born. You can add a pregnancy but is difficult to hide a child
and she didn't know what to do was any mother. We know. Mothers are very protective over the young especially when they're babies and allows father assist to ensure that will cost us 28 sort of the Holy Quran verse number seven, find that 50 Allah phillium
Allah Sharma says to her while at a coffee will act as any what what Allah say to her. Allah say to her own mimoza if you fear for your child, what does she do? Alfie phillium throw him into the revenue La La La La La quwata illa. Can you imagine Allah, Allah says to her, if you fear for your child, what once you realize throw the child into the river now? What are the hafi wallet has any and you should not be afraid, nor should you be sad.
This is a strange request from our last handout. We know How
can any mother be expected to throw and we know the Now those of us who've been there, it's a fast flowing a massive it isn't big. It was even bigger in the time of Iran than it is now. And fast flowing and very wide and very deep.
But she agreed to throw the child into the river. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala promised her two things.
Allah promised the two things. First Allah says in new la ke
wa Jalla wa Aloo
mostly allows on his own Mimosa. If you do this, if you throw your child in the river, I promise you too.
two things. First, I promise you that I will return this child to you.
And secondly, I promise you that this child will become one of my messengers, one of my dot people will call people to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, when Allah, Allah gave me these promises, she accepted the promises.
Allows, gives us also so many promises.
but she had yaqeen, she had faith, she had conviction.
She believed in the promises of allows pinata
allows her handler
inspired her to make a box and to put the child in a box, and she put the child in the river. And she instructed her daughter, Maria, or Maria method in Hebrew, to follow the box, see where this box is going.
And to the amazement of the child, where did this box eventually dock it
in front of the tennis of Iran. And this child was completely taken aback allows the promise to protect the child from around yet this box is docking at exactly the spot where her mother would die. If she knew where this box it stopped. And the daughter was watching the scenario. And the scenario was that all the soldiers if no one was there, and they took the box, and they went into the pellets with a box,
and allows 100 describes the whole scene inside to process allows him describes everything sort of passes. The little girl came back to a mother to say, Well, you know, the little boy has been taken into the ground. And then she was extremely upset and she was extremely worried. And she thought, Well, she's gonna go there. And she's just gonna tell him What's her child and so forth and so on, allows organizations charitable causes. Lola Ravana, Allah.
Allah says, but what did we do? We put
Sakina we put conviction, we put faith. We put serenity in the heart of the mother of Moosa alayhi salatu salam.
So why did Allah Subhana Allah do this? Why did she have to sacrifice? Why did you have to make a box put the child in, they put the child in whatever allows, you could have done it another way. But Allah subhanaw taala wants us to make an effect allows rather the performance of miracles, but allows us to take the first step, we have to do something about those miracles, that allows one who creates, we can't just sit back and say, Well, you know, Islam is going to trial, Muslims are going to be ruled the world. So hamdulillah we can relax and leave it to as you know, as we say, leave it to the next generation, as many people say, our problems today were created by our fathers and
inshallah to be solved by our children. So we are just here for the ride.
No, we can't say that we are part of the problem. And we also part of the solution. If we take Asia for example, in Ibiza, Jesus
and he Salatu Salam allowes Rhonda talks about NaVi censura Maria and allows further talks about the birth of an Ibiza Elisa to Salah was our last year was his mother Miriam.
She had just given birth. And I'm sure many of you have visited people in hospital which is given birth.
They just those mothers are so tired.
They have no strength they just want to sleep they don't have visited in fact they don't even want to eat they've gone through such a tough time giving birth to that child they completely tired and have no energy
when the child was born, what is Allah so I'm gonna say to the mother of lisa lisa to
allow so I'm gonna say to her, Well, who's de la ke big enough
to serve to to LA ke Rue Tobin, Jenny Allah.
You see this palm tree next to you shake it
and you will be given a ripe,
fresh takes ripe fresh, he will fall from this tree.
I don't know if you've ever seen a ripe they create a tree with ripe figs on it. I mean the tank is maybe about that size. No talk about a small tree growing up.
rabbet No, no, we talking about a tree that carries right? dates must be so big so allows you to shake the tree
it's quite a cabal to just given birth to a child, shake the tree
but why did alone even even even got a sumo wrestler to shake the tree he wouldn't be able to shake the tree.
But allows longer I wanted to do something the miracle the date was going to come the food was going to come to her. The dates you're going to fall from the tree. But she had to be here to do something for the miracle. So even if you just touched it, the date would have fallen on the head and you would have had dates for her to eat.
Now he moves as another example of our last one they expect us to do something
in the time of cinema will hottub rather than you know the famous story where Mr. Kane in imagined in the middle of the day, work during working hours, as we say, and there were some men sitting in the magic making Vicar pulling the testes and making maybe whatever they did in the budget. So Mr. K will ask you What are you doing? Yeah. They said well, we are nataka lalala we have the Butoh chiune we put our class in the payments or allows Fontella we will sit and make liquor and do whatever and the food will come down what is residual income.
So Omar, what is the Omar say? He shouted, no, no, he took out his work and he walked him out to the masjid.
I'm sure the Prophet would never have done that. I mean, the man urinated in the masjid and he tells us to have a bring a pail of water and throw. Amaro said, No, no, no.
extremism must be cut right at the bottom. before it starts. We'll do some more examples of that later on.
Now we move on to salon allows founder to come with a bunny trail.
And they came to the rake See, and they they stopped and they couldn't go further. And the miracle was going to happen but the miracle was going to happen only if Musab was going to do something and allow us to save one three be Africa, Allah, Allah settimo Moosa, take your stick and hit it on the water. Normally, if you go to the seam of the stick, and you eat it on the water, the only thing it'll happen is you'll get wrecked.
the command was for him to do something for the miracle to happen, because we know what happened after that the sea opened, Mussa and the bernisa went through around came and he and he drowned.
So coming back to the story of the mother of Mosul, Islam, she did this she did. She did what allows for a commander.
And there the child was inside the palace of the enemy around but in Japan is our last sort of add to the shoulder of our last panel, while Mariana Maduro Becca ELO and nobody knows the army of allows founder, and the soldiers of allows for except allows himself and unlike placed
a soldier of ease into the palace of Iran, and the soldier was the wife of around herself. When she looked at Moser, it was love at first sight. She looked at this baby, she took the baby, and she fell in love with musasa to salon, and she took it to figure out her husband, he said,
Please, when can we adopt this child? You know, we don't have any they didn't have any children? She said can we adopt the child we have no children.
And maybe there'll be some goodwill coming? Come for us when if we take this child. Of course a mother a woman has even over fear around.
Women have a lot of
And he allowed I said okay, fine, I have the chart.
And the chart didn't want to eat anything. The child didn't want to be breastfed by anybody the chocolate want to eat anything. And Chai mousse I was going down and she sent a message out she got all the women were breastfeeding in the in the in the town in the city to come and try to see if bhusawal drink was or didn't want to take anybody's except when the mother of Moser came and immediately she moves her drink on his mother's of Allah. So Allah so I'm gonna return the channel after 10 years or 15 years or 20 years in the first day. The child was returned to her. So the woman said the wife of Iran said
I'm gonna employ you to come stay in the palace. All you have to do is this period.
So she said
she knew that the shoe was on her foot. Shannon and I were a family at home. I couldn't come stay in your palace. I would ask the family. You must bring the child to my house every day when you need to feed your baby.
To my house. She agreed, she also she loved moves so much. So Moosa came back to his house in a caravan of soldiers Subhan Allah and maidens and whatever and whenever she played the cello last was surrounded with shoulders behind Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala promise is through. Rod du la que ella says, I promised you two things, I'll return the child to you. So how can you imagine what she must have felt when the child went into the palace of around the whole Aqua Taylor? How is the child ever going to come back to her? But look at the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So what save Moosa what saved him?
What saved him, was the man of his mother, the faith of a mother, the faith of his mother, saved him, the faith of his mother in what the faith of his mother in a loss of
the faith of his mother in the promises of Allah subhanaw taala
allows her how Allah tells us to do a little few things.
And Allah promises so much, yet we fail to carry out that which allows for how to ask us to do we don't just want to do them. What's wrong with us? Don't we believe in the promises of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, If you believe properly, rewarded, generously rewarded
and the size of the journey is greater than the size of the heavens and the earth put together.
Allows longer says in alladhina amanu Aminu solahart. Karnataka Hoon Jana to Fado, see Newsela, Allah says, all you have to do is believe and do good. Allah says you believe and do good, and Jana will be your reward. So why is it so much sin in the world? Why do Muslims commit so much sin? When Allah says if you just believe and do good Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Chang throw your, your your children into the Atlantic Ocean, or damn Table Mountain? No, allow Swan This is to ask you this. Believe. Put your faith and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala prophets are solemn promises us if we speak the truth in Sitka. Yeah, the Isla Vista Salam says valey truthfulness leads to all goodness
in your life. So why is it so much lying and deception?
Not talking about lying and deception in the world. I'm talking about lying and deception amongst Muslims. I
mean, one of my greatest disappointments in my own kind of Muslims is the amount of lying that we do. I mean, we lie with open faces, straight faces to anybody who comes along.
We make promises that we break every time we make it, we break it. And every time we speak
and I've said before, that Why must you lie?
Why must you make a promise if you know you can't keep to say no.
And if you think you're going to lie, just keep quiet, don't say anything. Keep quiet. Let the other man think what he wants to think. Somebody asked you something and you keep quiet. We can think of what he wants. But you have
you have been true to your covenant with a law was Subhanahu wa
Allah will provide for you. Tequila Jaya Allahu.
Allah says, if you have Taqwa, I will give you and show you a way out of your problems and all your troubles.
Say now murrayville hakab
He was once asked by as a hobby what is taqwa?
You know we have many meanings for dako. With God fearing this, it means to carry out your the commands which Allah has put on you, Omar said, taco is
when you walk through a field of phones
and you have to lift up your quota, or your phone, in order for if not to be entangled in the thorns and you may not be hurt by the thoughts. And what we mean by that. He meant to walk through the world and to avoid all the sudden which is there. So taqwa is not just to do good and to be good talk was also to avoid that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has made haram for us.
Allows vandala problems
assassin says to us that Islam will lead us to peace. Islam will lead us to security. Islam will lead us to well being. yet we're not confident about that.
We're not confident about it. Allah has promised so much for so little
allowance very little for us.
And you will gives us so much so much in return. You have a mother of mouza Elisa to Salaam sacrificing a child
because she wants to please Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So the first requirement
of the Republic revival of Islam in the world
is to have trust in allows
is to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala who has no say ever has faith and trust in Allah.
For who has Allah is enough for us.
And he man can transform us into the kind of human being
in a woman, the mother of Moosa in a man Moosa himself. And we know the things that moves I went through when allows vongola City when he came from madeon when he was in the discipline, he ran away from Egypt when he killed a man, when he came from Madhya Laos Wonderland he saw the bush the burning bush, as we know allows one lesson Mr. Kamiya
you are now a prophet, I am Allah speaking to you are now a prophet and allows for the second thing I listen to him. I want you to go back to Pharaoh.
And he said yeah, Allah, how am I going to go back to around? I ran away from Ibiza. Subhan Allah was the only superpower at the time in the world. How can I go back to Iran allow so I'm gonna say to Musa Musa throw your stick
the stick in your hand throw it and he threw the stick
and the stick turned into a
into a snake and what it moves or do allow so I'm going to talk in sort of normal about reaction of musala allows Wagner said one moves Veera
while I'm you're acting
Alyssa to know what does Allah say Moosa ran away and he didn't even look around. You know, when you fear something.
Like I have a son who was a doctor now but he, he is afraid of mosquitoes and, and spiders and
when he sees a spider or a mouse, he runs and he doesn't look around.
So Moosa didn't even look at the snake. And he ran.
And he was gone.
Because he went back alone, so I'm gonna call him back. But why did he run away because this was he just became a prophet.
And he probably didn't like snakes.
Lots of people don't like snakes. But what happened later on when he when to fear our nanny have confirmed that round and round came with the 70,000 sorcerer as soothsayers and they all lined up on Yom with Xena as Allah describes in the Quran, this day of celebration, all the all of of Egypt was there, and most hours a massage and standing alone and 70 and they all threw their sticks in their robes, and it all turned into snakes and Moosa didn't wink.
Why, because now yet
he knew that allows while delivering Allah promises in victory, Allah will give it and he threw his staff and it was devoured all the snakes that was there in front of you. So we need them to try and imbibe this kind of faith. And the only way we can imbibe this kind of effect is to read the Quran.
And I want to give you some homework to do
to strengthen your faith that you have, because many times we find that a man is something which increases and decreases.
I'm sure most of you either have your own
computers with internet or you have a child at home or whatever on your phone. I'm sure some of you are going to use it now. I want you to look up a phenomenon called the halo climb phenomenon. I'll spell it for you. h a l Oh, that's Halo.
Climb, like in decline c li n e. Hello climb phenomenon. It's called the halo climb phenomenon.
Anybody heard of it?
It has a direct bearing on the holder.
It has a direct bearing on
A miracle mentioned by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I'll probably speak about it next week. But in the interim, I want you to go
and find it on the internet. Hello client. Hello client phenomenon. And there is one site I don't know the name of the site where a man by the reign of God, Richard Dawkins, anybody about him? Anybody has a name?
One of these right?
Yeah, as atheists, Mashallah, you know, to book the god, what about God?
You know, the book in which he tries to
convince those who read the book that God is just a delusion doesn't exist, it's in your mind.
And on this particular side, there is a video clip where he spoke to some
young Muslim girl students must have been 12 years old, 11 years old, about atheism and about the non existence of God. And they described to him the Hello client phenomenon.
But because of his cover was so deep with him, he couldn't understand it, but I want you to go and read about it in Sharla. It will increase your email.
There are few other things which you need to talk about. When we talk about revival of Islam. We talk about a man we talk about guidance. We need to know that any revival is moving in there is a big revival going we may not do it, but there's a massive
revivalist movement going on in the world to reestablish Islam in its pure form.
And how do we experience it in Cape Town, by the opposition to the revivalist movement we see in our city and a direct opposition to reviving the sooner Mohamed Salah lorrison. And to get rid of the beta in Islam. We are on the opposite end. I don't know what all is going to do with us eventually. But this is what's happening to us here.
Everything which Mohammed says or didn't do and the Sahaba didn't do. We have made it our Deen completely.
And the people who are leading us along there's not other father. So it's careful where you send your child to learn hugs, because they recruit your son to jump up and down in Malachi now all of our character
matches them now become gems on the Thursday night.
People don't just make her dad sitting down, they know how to jump up and down.
We now have moated every Friday night we have all these things going on. Saying it is wrong. I'm saying we read Islam with Islam practiced by the Sahaba Allah him of salaatu wa Salaam. And we know that the Sahaba it is that generation of people that revived the message of tawheed
that no other job.
And they started, like we started, they were in exactly the same position as Muslims in this part of the world.
They were a minority in a majority non Muslim country for 13 years of the hava act to survive as a small minority in a majority Cofer country, namely MCI at the time. So the experiences and the way the province dealt with the situation at the time. There are great lessons for us in that yet few have written on the fact on that social mulu that as hava was taught in by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
But what is this a habit? In the revival of the heat? What did they have, they had a plan
which we sometimes don't have.
We don't have and we don't when we don't have a plan.
Then we all over the place.
The revival of Islam needs organization it needs a plan. It needs short term plan, medium term plan and long term plan.
We must have a strategy and we must be organized. And the effort and the energy for this is our email.
Of course the plan that the Sahaba had was designed by none other than Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
And I want to give you just a few examples
of what this plan entailed.
The plan was not
the plan of life of every Muslim.
First of all that we should not worry about Islam.
I said this to a friend of mine this morning.
They found explained to him exactly what he meant.
But it didn't mean that we should not be concerned about Islam it means that we should be worried about our role in the revival of Islam.
Because Allah will protect Islam himself.
the grandfather of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
when Abra came with his elephants from Yemen to destroy the Kaaba
Abdulmutallab way to go knock at the door Abra was parked outside NACA Abdulmutallab went to him and said
he set up a 30 Mashallah, what do you want? Abdullah said, I have come to fix my camels. You see what?
I have come to this through that house, the house of honor the house of your God, I've come to destroy the house and all your guards around your house. And you are interested in your camels. You said yes. On the way you do. I believe you took some of my camels. He said Yeah, I did. See my wonder camels back.
So you're not worried about the camera.
My camera is my cameras app to look after my own cameras that house has got a boss
and the boss of that house will look after the house.
So hon Allah Subhana Allah from this panel.
Show the plan is that we should find out what is my role? Everybody's gonna know I'm not given to Hallo client, for example, as something to go look up. So what you should do is part of your role is if you read about it,
speak to it about your friends, your parents, your neighbors, spirit.
That's your contribution to the revival of Islam.
Above as a five Liliana Mara delaughter on
the Battle of the ditch, Medina and Elisa Sallam said to him, I want you
to go across the trench and I want you to go and spy on the army of who was eight of the army.
Abu sphere. I want you to go and spy on Abu sufian tell me what they're doing.
I don't want you to do anything else. You might just go there. Listen to what they saying and come back.
So it was very dark that night. Very cold. Medina is very cold. It was a terrible wind blowing. Like the South East blows it was sand and dust and dark. So So David goes over and he sits down. And he sees about Sofia, and it's like yeah, this easy setting raise eyebrows when he says to himself, wow. I can just take out my sword and just go and kill him.
But he knew that wasn't the plan of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Hamas, Azam said to him, follow the plan. What is the plan? You go misfire, you come back. And as you're sitting there vesuvian kitchen is Kevin and Karen says
I want you to be aware that it's very dark and very cold and maybe some of the Aspies amongst us from Mohammed salatu salam, we didn't say solo artist
said maybe there's some spies amongst us from the Muslims. Before I speak, I want to make sure there are no spies amongst us, as the chap next to you, What is his name? So if I immediately said to the guy next to him, What is your name? Before the guy could ask him he said What is your name? So Han Allah, that is one of the prophets mainly because he was cutting on his feet. So of course, when you ask the man, you know, the man was American in laws, who later became Muslim, became the first Khalifa of Egypt. Later on, they used to laugh about it. So when he when he said what your name is mentioned last last as well if he's asking me must be one of us.
Say went back and, of course Abu Dhabi and said, you know, we leaving we can't be here, you know.
So he took the message back to Muhammad. So that was the plan of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
one might think
to add a man is enough, not enough.
It wasn't enough in the time of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam it or not is not enough today. It will never be enough.
We know that we know you can't just say he
will just have a man, the world will collapse because nobody will know how to build budgets, or install computers, or do anything else or heal us when we are sick. So there's more to life than having faith.
If we only have faith,
and if we don't have the right understanding of your faith,
and the correct understanding of your belief system, it will lead to extreme.
It will lead to extremism.
And that is the natural consequence of having a lot of faith without understanding.
A lot of faith
without understanding, you see today should only be around us What is it not a faith, little understanding
not only on the part of the followers also on the part of the leaders.
And these are things which happened in the time of Muhammad Sallallahu
they were many of us have harbored a lot of faith, but little understanding. Some of them are lots of understanding and little faith.
And then me salatu salam didn't allow extremism of any sort.
Whenever extremism reared its head in the time of the enemy salatu salam used to chop it down immediately. Example number one is three men came to Atlanta and asked her about the body of the Navy. So a lot of them they asked, How did the Prophet worship Allah subhanaw taala and she described how you worship and they say to themselves, well, we are better than a hammer system. I the first guy said, I
pray the whole night I don't sleep.
Because I just say properties to make salah and sleep. He said no, no, I pray I don't sleep.
The second man said I
don't have a wife. I don't believe in marriage.
I just make a bad wife is gonna distract me from from making a bad.
The third one said I fast.
Always, never read my fast, everyday fast.
So when the Prophet came back, I said these are the three men came and they this is what they say. Nobody says some became very angry, came extremely angry. Because the three men said
I am the messenger of Allah.
I pray at night and asleep.
I'm the Messenger of Allah, I marry women.
I mean, the Messenger of Allah, I false, and I also don't fast.
This is my way
from Andromeda and so nutty, Felisa mean, and he doesn't follow my way is not of me.
So which way should we follow the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He wanted to stop any kind of extremism, whether it be civil rights, or to the left.
Allen Othman. In the time of Naka, island off Dan came to the Renaissance era Salalah we want to dedicate our lives to Islam and to the worship of Allah Prophet said, No.
You should make noises you should marry, have children and do everything in moderation.
salmaan whereas the alotta on
his friend's wife, or Buddha, Buddha's wife one day came to complain to him, say to some man, you know, my husband, a Buddha die is such a good man, but he's living in the era.
He's not living in madonia I want you to come and give him you know, come and speak to my husband, nurses. come speak to my husband, you know. So salmaan went to visit Buddha. And after he set up the I'm going to spend a few days with the opposite. I said, Fine. And about that now as far as seeing the date of salmaan City. No, no, no, no, I'm your visitor. I'm going to take you for lunch, whatever lunch and I want you to eat lunch with me. So I knew that fasting so now
you know if somebody invites you, you must eat.
And the night a Buddha does it He replaces sleep salmaan and I'm gonna make Salah.
You can sleep your needs to
first sleep and then you can make Salah. So, Salma noona Buddha knew that this was the son of Mohamed Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam Abdullah
Live in the Amara cinema is once asked about his son.
Nagisa was asked sorry, about Abdullah. Omar,
what kind of a person is Abdullah? So Naveen Sam said Nam Alma.
Poverty is a very good man.
There's one thing you should do, we should pray a little bit at night. So you see the balance.
So I'm gonna have normal didn't make me sir at night, the brother of the one didn't wanted to introduce it to him, but in a manner, which would not make him and a person of extreme behavior. So we see then in the life of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, that the plan for the revival of Islam was a plan that took into account the needs, the daily needs of mankind,
that we need to find time and this is important part, allows 100 will not let the miracle happen, unless and until we also contribute something
to the realization of the victory of Islam in the world for us today. And for the young people. Because we know that the revival of Islam rests upon the shoulders of the young. And therefore there are many wolves in the community, who have their eyes set, especially on the religious young people
to take them away from Sundar Mohamed Salah lasala, to entice them
with what appears to be
part of Islam and is not part of Islam.
If it was part of Islam, I think the world would have been convinced that is part of Islam.
I just read a report written by the RAND Corporation,
nothing to do with our currency.
It's an American institution,
have millions and millions of dollars.
That writes the policy for the American government.
And the report is brought out by one of the editors, who is a Jewish woman, married to a more that
I can know what his name is, but he was previous ambassador to Afghanistan and to Iraq. And he was also ambassador to the United Nations for American
She wrote this report.
And in this report, she writes of how to confront the revival of Islam in the world.
How do we how does the American government
try and reverse
this long progress that Islam is making in the world today
with an unlimited budget.
And one of the first things that you write is to remove from young people, the spirit of jihad,
to emphasize always, that Islam is a non belligerent non violent religion,
that Muslims should be encouraged to adopt democracy.
Muslims should be encouraged.
And she mentioned Sufi ism, in this report,
numbers get you the link for this, as one of the encouragements given should actually be given to Muslims,
because of the philosophy of Sufism,
and because of many other things, that distracts Muslims from the main goal on the dunya, and that is to establish justice in the world. And we know that democracy has failed the whole world. It's failed as in this country. Yes, it's a big thing to talk about it. But if we look at the results of democracy in our own code, we don't have to go further than South Africa, will see the disaster we have learned that in because of democracy.
We get all the wrong leaders, the wrong policies, there is corruption, there is outright theft, and all in the name of
democracy. We have the best constitution in the world, the Big Bill of Rights in the world. We have a Constitutional Court yet
Because it is said
that any nation that loves and a man made law
We'll never be free.
Just prove it America just proved. Snowden just proved it.
Big spying scandal the United States of America, because democracy in the world, they spy on their own citizens. They listen to the phone calls of their own citizens.
That is democracy.
So we should not talk about democracy, we should speak about Sure.
If the RAND Corporation, whatever the RAND Corporation tells us in the report, it should be a wake up call for us.
Because that is with a wases our Achilles heel.
That's where they see where we should not be going.
Whatever they say, as Omar said, when you have a problem, ask your wife.
If your wife says yes, it means no.
If your wife says no, it means yes, and this has nothing to do with women. Please, I'm not I love women.
I respect women, actually daughters and a wife and a sister.
maybe on I didn't say I don't know. But they say that's what almost saying. So whatever they maybe can say then we say no. If they say yes, we say no, they say no, we say yes.
So May Allah so I'm gonna give inshallah, that we
not only develop our Eman but also have a strategy and a plan. And we also look at our own role, what contribution Can we make, towards the revival of Islam, even if it's by mouth, or by writing, or by speaking or giveaway, but we must be part we can't be sitting on the sidelines. We must be part of this revival
in 20 years time, when they're going to write the history of 19 of 2013. They will say it was probably the greatest year of revival in the Islamic world, despite all the waters going on. There's a great revivalist movement going on in the world. And we must be part part of that movement in Sharla. And just to repeat, remember, it is the halo climb phenomenon.
