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

When I was a biller Himanshu emphasis

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

Molina love Allah. Allah. Allah, Allah.

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

Allah Allah Allah Allahu la sharika wanna shadow? Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Salam O Allah. He was heavy woman da da da what he he he lived with the brothers and sisters in Islam a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:34--> 00:00:55

Today, inshallah, we'll be speaking on the subject of freedom and human rights, generally and freedom and human rights, particularly in Islam. And we know that because we can speak on this topic in a Masjid on a Friday that Islam has a particular perspective

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

on both freedom and human rights.

00:00:59--> 00:01:02

And our perspective on freedom and human rights is

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

something very, very different from the freedom and human rights

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

that we read about and listen to, on the television. In Islam, freedom and human rights

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

has a very comprehensive meaning.

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

It has to have a comprehensive meaning because both freedom and human rights

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

has been legislated by Allah Spano tala,

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

not for individuals,

00:01:33--> 00:01:39

but for the whole of humanity, not only for Muslims, but for all of humanity.

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

And I want to illustrate

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

the comprehensiveness of

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

freedom and human rights in Islam

00:01:51--> 00:01:56

by an incident that happened in the time of Mr. Bill Hata hora de la salon.

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

You know, Mr. Bill hottub, lived

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

only three years after the demise of the death of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam.

00:02:08--> 00:02:13

So this incident is an incident which happened very early on in the history of Islam.

00:02:17--> 00:02:23

It concerns a man by the name of Robbie Ebner rob the alarm clock.

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

He was a very simple man.

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

A man who did not possess many worldly effects.

00:02:36--> 00:02:45

A man who had no fancy horse or fancy camel, a man who Islam came to teach that

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

the effects

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

and rewards the after is better than the effects and rewards of this world.

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

When he became Muslim,

00:03:01--> 00:03:05

he gained a lot of prestige by accepting Islam.

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

And in the time of Amelie mahatama BIA became the ambassador

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

of Amara Bill hottub.

00:03:16--> 00:03:21

To Rustom, who was then the king of the Persians.

00:03:23--> 00:03:27

And we know of course, that Omar attained an army to Persia

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

to conquer Persian.

00:03:33--> 00:03:38

But the protocol always was that when a Muslim or before Muslim army entered a city,

00:03:40--> 00:03:45

the halifa would send an ambassador to the king of that city or the leader of that city or the governor of that city

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

to inform the city why the Muslim army was there.

00:03:51--> 00:03:55

And to offer the city Islam first before the army would attack.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

And in this particular case,

00:04:00--> 00:04:23

Mr. taba sent a man by the name for a big armor, armor to take this message to the king of the Persians. And you know, the kings of the Persians in the Romans are very pompous people. So that this big palace was pillars along the side and the red carpet. And the king was sitting on his big throne, and incomes that are big on his meal.

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

He didn't even have a horse to ride on came on a meal.

00:04:29--> 00:04:45

And being having travelled from Edina, which you can imagine what he looked like, he didn't have a suitcase with extra piece of clothing. He wasn't overweight. We all traveled today and I was simply dressed properly, I'd only the one set of clothing which I have in the store and it was dirty of dust.

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

And the king looked at him and say to him,

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

come and he came along and he dragged his spear along. And he's written in the history books at the spear. Cut the carpet right from the beginning of the carpet to the end of the carpet because pulling it along.

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

With his with his left hand

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

and he appeared in front of reciben residency team.

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

You dirty IRA first of all you dirty.

00:05:11--> 00:05:34

You have no civilization. I mean, we know that before Islam, the Arabs had no civilization to really speak about. They will not acculturate people. They were the most backward people at that time. Imagine the era for the most backward of people. So much so that the Roman Emperor when he met

00:05:36--> 00:06:16

about soufiane, you say to Abu sufian, when Abu sufian when you introduce the prophets of Salaam to him, he said, I know about your Prophet, I've read about your prophet in our Bible. So I know that God had informed us that He will send the Prophet but my surprise is that he saved the property you guys I mean, look at you, um, you backwards you can't read and write to come from the desert, my God, he could have chosen a better people to send the profit to. So that was the image that the world had of the Arabs of the time and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam came of course, that impression changed drastically in a very short period of time.

00:06:18--> 00:06:35

So rather than said to him, so what is your claim to fame? What do you want? What do you want from us? Why are you here? You see, you can overcome the Persian Empire, you feel that the adults coming out of the desert? I mean, you have these illusions of grandia

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

What do you really want

00:06:40--> 00:06:55

and you know, all the slaves and they Persia was at the kingdom of slaves and and and and kings and and the royalty and all the slaves are lined up and all the soldiers are standing there you can imagine. You see it in the movies. And he opened his mouth and he said Vietnam and he said

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

you want to know why we're here. You want to know why we came?

00:07:02--> 00:07:15

He said john is ominous in Arabic and said in English on the on the screen. He said john Islam llama lucre janessa min a bird a tiller a bird Illa I berthier of the lie that

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

it was his first point. What do you can do Nia in a subtle Akira.

00:07:26--> 00:07:31

Second point. Third point. Warming Joel adhyayan

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

illa Allah, Islam

00:07:35--> 00:08:05

Subhana Allah, this was the Magna Carta of Islam. This was the charter of Islam. This was everything. That is Sam Capel, encapsulated in three simple sentences, not a long speech, I make simple three sentences. And what are these three sentences he said, Islam came to take men away from the worship of men, from worship of slaves of God, to the worship of the God of old slaves

00:08:06--> 00:08:21

to take men away from the worship, this is the first point so what is the first point? What is the first objective of Islam? What is the first mission of Islam? The first mission of Islam is to remove men from the worship of other men.

00:08:23--> 00:08:30

What is that what is that called? That is called to read? That is called to read.

00:08:31--> 00:08:42

And what is encapsulated inside the head it's like a chocolate you know this chocolate with a nut inside what is the nut inside the chocolate? The Nut inside the chocolate is a column of like a llama

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

that we worship none except our last panel.

00:08:47--> 00:09:06

today of course this has become a very fluid concept. So what do you mean by worship? What do you mean by the heed? What do you mean by this and can that be incorporated into this? All those confirm ideas have been incorporated into many a mind of a Muslim

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

ideas have shaken

00:09:11--> 00:09:18

that maybe there is a possibility that Islam you know today we say Islam is all embracing you know we should be tolerant with each other

00:09:21--> 00:09:25

and I'll be giving a lecture inshallah maybe not next week, but we got next

00:09:27--> 00:09:32

on how does one three religious differences or what I call

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

not differences on the head, but differences on theology.

00:09:39--> 00:09:58

The way I put them, others aside, we all agree, we don't fight about whether a man is 100, Euro, shafiul, Malik or hanbali. We've all embraced that. We've all equalize that. But the minute many theological issues about hate about Allah about belief about worship, there are fundamental differences between Muslims and Muslims.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

There is a

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

Subject inshallah I will deal with as time goes on. So worship of men

00:10:08--> 00:10:25

of other men is taboo in Islam in any form, whether the man is dead alive with his got a long beard, whether he says he can see in the darkness we'll see tomorrow we'll see next week, or know what happened last week, whatever the case may be. It doesn't matter.

00:10:26--> 00:10:44

Allah subhanaw taala said Mohamed Salah la salam to liberate us, in order for us to worship only one God and those who do not do that. There is no salvation for them. Why? Because anybody who turns his face away from a loss founder, even if it is as much as one millimeter

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

allows for how the law says in the law Yes, Giroux.

00:10:49--> 00:11:03

Law. Yes. Are you sure I can be he? Well, yes, Pharaoh Maradona, Delica. Lima Yeshua. Alonso says he will not forgive a person who came a chick. In other words, who

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

allows

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

any drama, or Iboga to be directed in anyone except to our last panel.

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

One of the Sahaba I forgot his name.

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

One day came back to Medina from Syria.

00:11:25--> 00:11:34

And when he saw the Navy salami prostrated in front of the Navy Aliza, to Salah, he went down, and he frustrated in front of me.

00:11:35--> 00:11:48

And then I was absolutely shocked out of his mind, he became very angry. And he said to this happy What is this? Why did you come to this, we don't need to do this. Don't do that frustration is only for a loss.

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

He said, your soul I said O Messenger of Allah. When I travel,

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

I saw that the Christians

00:12:01--> 00:12:07

Ghana flakes, and frustrated in front of the kings in the governance out of respect for them.

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

And I feel that the one person in the world who needs the most respect would be you.

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

And so I felt that I want to prostrate to you, out of respect for you.

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

And then everyone even said, you never do this ever again.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

Never do this, if not, not what we see today. Today we see

00:12:33--> 00:12:43

on YouTube stay you can see it, the live people going down on the knees and kissing the feet of other people, other human beings

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

apart from the fact that men may have an infection in his toes.

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

This is totally haram check.

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

Because Isaiah Thomas bomb, Mohammed Salah makes it

00:13:00--> 00:13:20

and then it says lm SAP version make an exception or a concession to that if I should have allowed anything of that to that effect, the reason Salim said low amount to a hidden and yes, Julia had in the amount of data and test to delay. So do you have any other mahaki Allah?

00:13:21--> 00:13:45

Let me say Salaam said if he didn't do it. But he said if I if I had to command somebody to make to do to somebody else I would have commanded the wife to make to do to a husband because of the rights that he has over middle MSA don't go now and say chef said you know what you've said today

00:13:47--> 00:13:57

the property actually makes you do to me because so much rights property, he said if so means he didn't allow not allowed. But if a situation actually have arisen.

00:13:59--> 00:13:59

And you know what?

00:14:01--> 00:14:07

And this is another subject I think we should always talk about mareva elected to speak about this about relationship between husband and wife.

00:14:10--> 00:14:19

And I want to talk about it again because I deal with it every day and I deal with with the way people live and the way they conduct their lives and we conducted married life.

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

And I came across a book called

00:14:28--> 00:14:35

The surrendered wife. The surrendered wife is written by a lady by the name of Laura Doyle.

00:14:37--> 00:14:57

She's what may we call an ex feminist. She was a hardened feminist you know the feminist movement is started in the 60s and 70s who say that men and women are equal as men should cook one day the man to cook one day husband should have his friends the man woman should ever friends totally quality in the whole and she went through three marriages all failed.

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

In the fourth marriage, she decided she was going to change her attitude which was to become gonna throw feminism away. So now I've been married for 10 years and a marriage Mashallah not a Muslim, but marriage is successful and she's happy and so on and so on. And she says two things. She says,

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

What does men want from women and what does women want from me?

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

Listen what you think. I know what to say.

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

Not that.

00:15:30--> 00:15:30

She says

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

what a man wants from a woman

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

is respect.

00:15:38--> 00:15:38

Think about

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

it as I say to you.

00:15:45--> 00:15:53

With a pinch of salt, I'm saying this I shouldn't actually say this because women also around you want to say a lot of things with the wives also you

00:15:55--> 00:16:09

exactly what a man wants to be restricted by smile. He wants his wife as Allah. Allah says in the Quran, our region, our moon Island, Nisa, sorry, I'm getting off a little bit the topic, but it's important case, I die tomorrow and I haven't given the message

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

you love

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

could happen

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

anytime. So

00:16:20--> 00:16:34

a husband the word cover moon means in charge, it means leadership. It means protection. It means so many of those things, and has been has been taking that responsibility and that

00:16:36--> 00:16:41

status in the home, all he wants to resolve is to respect me give an example.

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

So the cap leaks.

00:16:44--> 00:16:56

The husband thinks Well, today, I think I'm gonna fix the tech myself that comes in the kitchen. He's got all his tools and screwdrivers and whatever he he's got, and he's got the washer there. So his wife looks at him and laughs

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

the plumber.

00:17:03--> 00:17:08

But he feels as the man as he now wants to fix the tap. And the moment his wife says that there's a problem.

00:17:10--> 00:17:19

You can imagine what will happen as a husband, I'm sure I can imagine what you will say to her. I'm not going to say I'm going to repeat what you will say. But I can imagine what you say to her.

00:17:21--> 00:17:24

Hopefully you won't swear at it, but you'll say things to her that won't be nice.

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

So all he wants from his wife is great. Mashallah.

00:17:30--> 00:17:56

My husband actually going to fix the test today. Mashallah. Very good. Excellent. And if he doesn't fix it on that day, and he struggles and he, he doesn't do it that day, and he skips a few days, he comes back and says, Don't worry, I know you're busy at work. I never think in your mind. But when you have time, you need to get a job, not what you know, you started a week ago to fix the tap, you know, tap a stone or fix the water stir leaking, you know what kind of aspirin or you know, that's what he was and what is the white bond from the husband.

00:17:57--> 00:18:16

I'm giving a shortened form of it. In fact, this book is on the internet, you can in fact, it's a PDF format of this book. You can actually just download it, download it and read it. It's called. It's on my slides. You see the name it's called the surrendered wife. And what does it say to us? It says to us that allows

00:18:17--> 00:18:21

Lisa decorado Allah says laser Dr. Rocha.

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

Carlota Allah says

00:18:26--> 00:18:30

that the man is not like the woman, that the men and women

00:18:35--> 00:18:35

we also

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

but I love the system

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

that all the feminism or whatever they said

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

is unacceptable because it goes against

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

the law,

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

the natural orientation of men.

00:19:04--> 00:19:08

So coming back to the br br says

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

while the

00:19:13--> 00:19:14

body can do Hindu Nayla, salah

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

and Islam came to take men away from the constriction

00:19:20--> 00:19:36

of this world, conceited world very constrict. We live your life in a house or maybe 150 square meters, maybe an applaud the 500 square meters that's all you have. And if you got all your children staying with you maybe confined just to one room in the house.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

That's sometimes a lot of benefits.

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

And that sometimes

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

the baker a lot of most parents

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

maintenance we put in an old age home,

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

outside bullying

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

lockira he says we came with Islam to take men to the vastness of the era. And finally said, woman, God at the end illa adlink Islamorada Leticia, and Islam came to take men away from the operation of other systems of other faiths of other religions, to the other end of Islam, to the justice of Islam.

00:20:34--> 00:20:40

So three things Islam came with the worship of Allah, Allah. Hello to the exclusion of everybody else.

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

You don't say y'all Forgive me

00:20:46--> 00:20:57

by the greatness of Mr. or Mrs. x or y or z, or Mr. X or shift x or molana or Wally X, Y or Z. That's haram that you're not allowed Islam.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

You say Allah in the US Allah, Allah ask you first

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

why because that is the way Mohammed Salah Salah maida

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

because ISIS

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

or you go and visit the grave and you sit next to the grave and you think well I'm gonna make a year because they're more Baraka to make the other two might die in the masjid. why I'm saying

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

that there was never accepted our loss.

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

Because you feel

00:21:34--> 00:21:37

that you do our not Ts the seven heavens and lays

00:21:39--> 00:21:48

some dead person who is totally unaware of you never met you and doesn't know you. You don't know him. He doesn't hear you solid promises they can't hear you.

00:21:52--> 00:22:02

When Allah says there are only a city block, so always be jayachandran be Jai Samsung be giant this one which is that one, the whole Allah

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

Jin

00:22:11--> 00:22:15

Li Abdullah says I have not made managing SAP should worship Me, call upon me.

00:22:19--> 00:22:27

Allah says call upon me and I will answer. This is the primary liberation that Islam brought to humanity, mankind.

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

So what is freedom in Islam, freedom

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

is to worship a lot to the exclusion of everything in everybody else.

00:22:46--> 00:22:49

And up to today, in the 21st century that we live in,

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

there is no other faith

00:22:53--> 00:22:56

that can claim pure monotheism except Islam.

00:22:59--> 00:23:12

If you study religion, comparative religion, they will teach you that the world started off as paulius polytheistic meaning that the world knows people adopting anything as a god.

00:23:15--> 00:23:20

We know for example, in the time of the giant Ilia, Allah tells us that

00:23:21--> 00:23:33

he went on a journey and he forgot to take a small little God with him. So what he did was he made a God out of dates made to do to the dates to the God of dates. When he was finished, he took the dates broken up and hated

00:23:35--> 00:23:36

Amara

00:23:37--> 00:24:02

but that was in the beginning of religion of the jungle, you know, a lot of people have to be brought into the Alliance and NaVi smile to them. So they started off as monotheists as believers in worship of one God. As the centuries went on, they changed it as we beginning now we started on that road, by the people of New South and on the road after they started the road.

00:24:04--> 00:24:05

They had

00:24:06--> 00:24:38

all ama in the community, very pious people who died. And eventually people say these are very pious people let's build a dome over the grave. And they both tombs over the graves and eventually shaytan came said, you know, these people are such good people, you know, you're so bad, you should worship through them. And eventually, by worshipping through them, because they were good people, they call them early on, friends of Allah. And eventually they started worshipping these tools. And what it allows him to do, allows bahala destroyed the whole world.

00:24:42--> 00:24:48

Allah say in the rain and destroyed the whole world, cleanse the old world. That's how it started.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

And I see we see it again, shouldn't be shy to say this. Shouldn't be shy to say that all our kurama It's so cold.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Why do I say so cool?

00:25:02--> 00:25:07

Because how do we know? How do we know whether friends of Allah How do you know tell me

00:25:08--> 00:25:24

first of all we don't even know whether there are people buried where they supposed to be buried. That's number one. Number two who knows who they are they like me I knew they went to the toilet that friends they had wives that false that all these things if they are buried way we think they are buried

00:25:29--> 00:25:43

so people say yeah you know they say the dream in a dream summary tells them you know there's a valley buried on signal arrows a valley buried there make a tomb they put some green cloth over the la ola code and what do we do? We say Ah, you know, a man can see.

00:25:52--> 00:25:56

Allows 200 Allah says in Surah talara one verse.

00:25:58--> 00:26:02

cola amico enough's enough and voila, Dora Illa Masha Allah.

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

Allah, Allah Allah, Allah

00:26:07--> 00:26:33

Why am I standing in an Atlanta de Roma Bashir on the call me when this sort of law you can can read it for yourself a seven, seven verse one eight what is a loss harmless? allows mahalo talks to allow someone to talk to the NetBeans of Allah is a conversation with Muhammad, Allah talk to him directly. What does Allah say to him? Allah says to him, oh, Mohammed Salam say,

00:26:34--> 00:26:39

I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as Allah wills.

00:26:41--> 00:26:53

Other words, even Mohamed Salah lawless Alam, being the most Beloved of Allah has no power to keep away evil no to bring good to himself, except by the word of Allah.

00:26:54--> 00:26:59

Then Allah says to him, say, oh, Mohammed, if I had knowledge of the unseen,

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

which means he didn't have knowledge of the unseen, I would have multiplied all good and evil who would have touched me? So alswamitra confirms that Mohammed Salam did not know about what is going to happen tomorrow and next week.

00:27:16--> 00:27:17

Why not?

00:27:19--> 00:27:28

Because that is part of the rape of the unseen. And what does Allah say about the unseen Valley? Calcutta, bollore, Buffy, with Allah, Allah.

00:27:30--> 00:27:45

Allah says, part of a belief of a believer he said he believes in the unseen which Allah only knows. So Allah says mama Eudora the unseen, Allah, Allah says, tell humanity I am but a warner and a bring up glad tidings to those who have faith.

00:27:46--> 00:27:49

So ultimately, it comes down to

00:27:52--> 00:28:10

Emma and Nicole me, too, even if a man is weak, you will compromise your faith. If we minestrone What do you say tawakkol to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah La quwata illa Villa, I put my trust in Allah and there is no mate no power except in Allah was fine.

00:28:13--> 00:28:27

So coming back to our discussion, allows while we know now that in reality, if you read book upon book, the beginning of the belief of men was believed in one Allah.

00:28:29--> 00:28:39

Allah, Allah. Allah says kulu insane in walidah Allah, Allah sutra, every man was born

00:28:40--> 00:28:47

on natural monotheism, every man was born, believing only in one allows.

00:28:49--> 00:28:50

This is the beginning.

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

Until zero astronism came along.

00:28:59--> 00:29:00

I must now find

00:29:02--> 00:29:26

the rest of the wisdom as we know them to be fire worshippers, they started they had believed in one God and they split them into two they said, well, there can't be one God, why not? Because one God can't create evil. We have to have another god for evil, they'd never shaytaan in their lives, some or other. So they decided to grab back to God's one evil god and one good god.

00:29:27--> 00:29:32

Eventually they became fire worship as we know and eventually they became people worship them.

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

So

00:29:39--> 00:29:46

every religion then started off believing in one allows pinata worshiping one God.

00:29:48--> 00:30:00

We know for example, that even in Hinduism, and Christianity, both target of worshiping one God, if you study Christianity Today, what will you find you

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

Find that the crushes don't even agree that Christ was the founder of Christianity. In fact, I would say 99% of Christians don't believe that Christ founded Christianity. No, they say that co founded Christianity. They say the Bible's written by Paul.

00:30:16--> 00:30:19

And Paul came nearly 100 years after Christ.

00:30:21--> 00:30:31

Like we say that say I say today, the first mile node was celebrated 600 years after the death of the Navy salsola. What do you want to believe in its effect,

00:30:33--> 00:30:36

yet, it has become greater than,

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

greater than,

00:30:43--> 00:30:49

greater than fasting. There are even people today who say that it is greater than like Coca Cola co Taylor.

00:30:56--> 00:30:57

Because we deny

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

the facts of our own faith. And so the Christians having denied

00:31:09--> 00:31:16

the role that the ISA played in bringing to them that he the they completely sidelined him

00:31:17--> 00:31:19

and gave the Legion to Paul.

00:31:21--> 00:31:41

Like in this thing of mo loot, we completely sidelined the levy so salami doesn't figure in this, please don't bring him into this argument is not part of this argument. Many people say no, no, no, no, no. We celebrate his madness is not part of a turn to salt. This is about us, not about him. We want to do this. This is as we want to do this.

00:31:44--> 00:31:57

We can do it potentially argument arguments about him when he said yes. He said no. Well, there's a Harvard didn't do it. We are not interested in that argument, which is in our own argument. Our own argument is we like to do it and we want to do it.

00:32:03--> 00:32:07

After to the moon Allah Hamidi Nico alesi, you want to teach our lady?

00:32:10--> 00:32:14

Who have you want to teach our lady who have you on to teach Mohammed Salim

00:32:15--> 00:32:18

what he should have taught us and shouldn't have taught us

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

on the thesis

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

they should have taught us or they should not have taught us.

00:32:26--> 00:32:27

But that's not the end of the story. mediabrands

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

the end will come on the deputy ama

00:32:34--> 00:32:36

wound will be questioned about these matters

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

for us into the discussion.

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

So what did Paul say?

00:32:49--> 00:32:56

You know, when we take religion away from the Prophet whom are LED sent to the message, so when he posts a poll said,

00:32:57--> 00:33:07

I will become all things and I quote from the New Testament, I will become all things to all people so that I will bring them to the heart of Christ.

00:33:09--> 00:33:13

same argument Muslims have today. Same arguments, but

00:33:14--> 00:33:22

we love them so much. We will do anything that we want to do to praise him and love him. No matter what God says the majority says

00:33:23--> 00:33:29

supported the same. I'll do anything. On it poke Gregoire and phony Kate.

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

Dealing interest.

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

kill millions of people in Wall Street you start, burn people at the stake, steal people's countries.

00:33:42--> 00:33:43

As long as you love Christ

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

has come down. It's come down to

00:33:48--> 00:34:14

salvation lies. In loving Jesus. We never will say we love Jesus, we love Jesus, we love Jesus. That's it. That's the beginning and the end of Christianity. And we're going in the same direction. We need to take note, because that's what the study is about. Easter is about learning from history. Learning from the mistakes others might not the small mistakes, but the big mistakes. And this is what every father tells the child may can lead to mistakes.

00:34:17--> 00:34:23

And the good parent is a parent who makes lazy children make the mistake so that they will learn from the mistake.

00:34:25--> 00:34:50

And today Christians have reached the stage where they are confused about Christ. Some says God Some say is the Son of God. Samsung is part of the three person God. Some says men, some change men is God came down in the shape of a man. All these things exactly. And Islam Alhamdulillah came to liberate men from all of those skeletons in the cupboard.

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

So we find that

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

Allah salatu salam, he was the only prophet who instructed his followers

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

To bury him in the bedroom where he died.

00:35:08--> 00:35:13

Why? So that his followers won't build a big shrine for him and worshiping.

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

And when you hear these people say,

00:35:22--> 00:35:30

Oh, you know, Mohammed Salim is such a great man, Prophet of Allah, you know that he can see what can happen tomorrow. You know, we can see into the future.

00:35:32--> 00:35:40

He said to them, don't say that. I quoted the verse He said, Don't say that. Anyone that is he said to them, when you testify

00:35:42--> 00:35:52

to the oneness of Allah. And you mentioned my name, you must say, a shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa shadow Mohammedan.

00:35:56--> 00:36:08

He said to the companions, when you mentioned my name and you declare the oneness of Allah, you must say that I not only the messenger but also the the slave of Allah.

00:36:13--> 00:36:14

And I'm not saying this.

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

Hamas or Salaam said this said make sure

00:36:21--> 00:36:24

that you relegate me to be the slave of a low spot.

00:36:25--> 00:36:41

Call in nama Anna Machado, Mitsuko LA. Allah says to him, Obama's a solemn, say to the people that you are a human being who received revelation from Allah was panna cotta. And Allah told us how to praise him in order to elevate him.

00:36:43--> 00:36:49

The highest elevation came from Allah Allah gave him revelation from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:36:53--> 00:36:59

So Islam gave us this freedom to supplicate only to him and to no one else.

00:37:05--> 00:37:07

But people manipulate

00:37:10--> 00:37:13

ignorant people manipulate other people.

00:37:14--> 00:37:24

For example, in Christianity, you find that you go to a white church in a white area, and Jesus is in there on the cross, He will have blond hair and blue eyes.

00:37:27--> 00:37:30

If you go to highly charged you go there, you'll see a black Jesus

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

with dreadlocks.

00:37:37--> 00:37:52

So we make people sometimes what we want to make him something somebody says, This is my chef, shame the poor man is completely unaware of what this man thinks of him. But he tells his man was in such a way that the man is God instead of being complete man.

00:37:56--> 00:38:05

And so they did it with Jesus while he was now we know and so we want to try and do it with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Allah, Allah, protect us from that.

00:38:09--> 00:38:13

So Islam came to liberate us from the slavery of the worship of others.

00:38:17--> 00:38:23

And today we are enslaved in many ways. Sometimes we feel that I mean to love excessively slavery

00:38:26--> 00:38:40

sometimes we feel that we have to dress in a certain way otherwise people won't recognize us that we taught the whole day you know that just in only that time people say well, that's a shock if I were shortly shared with the paint on this a while can never shatter Kenny

00:38:43--> 00:38:46

now it's wonder I mean, our eyes covered I mean, what's what's the problem?

00:38:49--> 00:38:52

When the Quran says the same as walk around the older the top

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

in August, the middle of winter in Cape Town,

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

whatever.

00:38:59--> 00:39:03

So sometimes we enslave our own ignorance.

00:39:06--> 00:39:28

Women sometimes feel that they have to be anorexic, too beautiful for the county to actually know that to be certain and so forth and so on. Islam came to do away with all this Islam came to liberate us from ourselves, Islam thing to give us a sense of what I call self actualization. What is self actualization is a big term but it simply means that Islam came to tell us we are all beautiful in the eyes of Allah.

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

Like below

00:39:33--> 00:39:38

like I shine Xena like armor and all the others like Abdullah

00:39:40--> 00:39:43

whose legs was so thin to have a laugh to them.

00:39:44--> 00:39:54

You know, he's laughing people with thin legs. So they still have it in reverse Hassan said you loved him. On the day of judgment. His legs were way heavier than man out on the scale of, of justice.

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

Sam teaches us to be independent of the opinions of others that we must have confidence in our Islam. Confidence in a law that allows has given us a sense of worth. We're unique human beings on this earth

00:40:15--> 00:40:28

unique in our own unique in our own unique in our profits allow allows 100 has given us self esteem we know the only worth in this dunya but in the era we will inherit gender inshallah

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

The second thing that there'll be acid was

00:40:33--> 00:40:36

Islam will take us from the constriction of this world

00:40:37--> 00:40:39

to the vastness of the shaft.

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

But what do people say today? They say religion you know, religion is restrictive religion doesn't give us freedom.

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

There is no human rights in religion, no human rights in Islam.

00:40:52--> 00:41:14

Why can't we just be all good people, but End of story welcome, which has been good, you know, I must we need all these restrictions, XLR gives a car and all these things, you know, just be good, you know, like a bruise on a computer with a utility, you know, be good to people be kind to people, you know, give charity to the animals be good to the environment, in service and so on.

00:41:17--> 00:41:20

And why can't we just serve a law the way we want to serve a law center?

00:41:29--> 00:41:33

First thing was realize my dear brothers and sisters, is that in Islam,

00:41:35--> 00:41:44

talking about restrictions in Islam, the rule in Islam is that everything is permissible that is the default position.

00:41:47--> 00:41:48

Everything is permissible

00:41:51--> 00:41:55

cause except that which allows handleless made Haram in the Quran.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

And they basically

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

but five things of all the billions of things which are created

00:42:04--> 00:42:09

by there is no permissibility there is no ebba in matters of worship.

00:42:12--> 00:42:18

In matters of worship, you have to follow 100% the Quran and Sunnah Bahama you can't create

00:42:20--> 00:42:23

an act of worship not permissible. You can certainly say

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

I love Hamas, Osama loved him so much. You know,

00:42:28--> 00:42:33

when I say his name, and I put a lot in him, I get a sort of a feeling crickets.

00:42:34--> 00:42:39

I can fill out you know, stand up and jump up and down and out and run up and down.

00:42:40--> 00:42:54

And I want to do all these things because you know, I get this feeling. And so people do it. And so they justify they say But no, this is part of my feeling like I have to jump I have to jump in you know, it's become ridiculous because it's exactly like breakdance

00:42:55--> 00:43:08

Exactly. I mean, totally ridiculous. We we've gone from the sublime from the believers of sublime to the totally ridiculous human language. My god the way these Muslims have gone.

00:43:10--> 00:43:14

And these people were cloaks and amama

00:43:15--> 00:43:18

and all kinds of and beards you know, cool.

00:43:20--> 00:43:21

But what do they do they

00:43:22--> 00:43:31

go places and they do it in their home in the hall or in the street like the Coons will say well as now means when they actually do it in house of Allah was found over time.

00:43:33--> 00:43:36

And that is an eyebrow that you put Salawat and Mama says an eyebrow

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

was commanded.

00:43:40--> 00:43:48

Legend renamed the magic Fridays we say was shifted to liquefy terracotta so Batman was a big mama kasana fattened soon and

00:43:54--> 00:44:07

so Islam came and told us everything is permissible except matters of faith matters of Deen that is laid out for you cast in stone, you can't change it. You have to do it in a particular fashion in a particular way.

00:44:09--> 00:44:12

Islam also touches on our personal freedom

00:44:15--> 00:44:21

when we say some prohibits us and prohibits that Islam touches, people say why can I drink? You know what's wrong with drinking?

00:44:24--> 00:44:25

What's wrong with drinking alcohol?

00:44:28--> 00:44:31

Don't you know that if you drink a little bit they say you know drink a little bit Good for you.

00:44:33--> 00:44:37

Wherever red wine is good for you. You live long you'll be healthy.

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

Crease your lifespan.

00:44:42--> 00:44:46

And they say well, I'm just a casual drink. I don't even adjust to Sundays maybe

00:44:48--> 00:44:54

just a social drinker. You know, what's wrong with that? There are Muslims who say this I'm dumber than Muslim Muslims.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Tell that to a mother who's lost a child.

00:45:01--> 00:45:08

Through a drunk driving accident, tell a mother or a father who's lost a child to the driver who maybe had one or two beers.

00:45:09--> 00:45:13

Kill the child. Tell her mother that casual drinking and wine is fine.

00:45:15--> 00:45:18

If it's on him, as the Bible says in moderation.

00:45:19--> 00:45:26

Why can't we date youngsters who say, why can't we date? You know? Why can't we go out and data, kiss and touch and follow each other?

00:45:28--> 00:45:31

Why can't we engage in intimacy before marriage?

00:45:33--> 00:45:41

After all, you know, she's like my sister, you know, you can leave her alone with me, it's fine. You like my sister, she will say that he's like my brother, you know, you can go go out, you know, you stay with

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

nothing will happen. Don't worry.

00:45:46--> 00:45:52

Yeah, that's probably an exception. And the person who says they're exceptionally probably lying on top of it.

00:45:54--> 00:45:56

Talk to the parent whose daughter was raped.

00:45:58--> 00:45:59

To know why Islam prevented

00:46:01--> 00:46:03

the mixing of men and women, the dating of men and women.

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

Talk to a mother or a father whose daughter was right.

00:46:10--> 00:46:20

Today, we see women and we look at them because their mothers in the files allow them to dress the way they dress, that men fall in love not with your daughter, they fall in love with what they see on the outside of your daughter.

00:46:24--> 00:46:25

The inside they never see.

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

And when they marry your daughter, and they see the inside, they don't like it.

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

So if this girl is too intelligent, to slump,

00:46:35--> 00:46:36

or self

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

harming, then we know how many people died from drunken driving.

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

We know how many homes are destroyed by pornography, for example, become another disease among married people in our community and not for young people. It's common disease that breaks families.

00:46:59--> 00:47:01

Interest usery.

00:47:03--> 00:47:29

So we have this understanding that allows for how the law prohibits all these things? Because it's backfires. Not because you want to do it. Because if we didn't prohibit it for us, he would not have been a merciful God. But he's a merciful God. That's why prevents he, he protects us from ourselves. What do we do today? Today we talk about I've heard that somebody told me, a Muslim father said this bar is Muslim, sir.

00:47:30--> 00:47:39

When somebody came to tell him that he saw his son with two girls three o'clock in the morning, and in what position or whatever it was even he said, I hope he was he tried protection with you.

00:47:40--> 00:47:42

So today, we teach our unmarried children

00:47:43--> 00:47:45

to protect themselves not to

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

say that you're a young girl

00:47:54--> 00:47:58

who's dying of AIDS because just once there was no protection available.

00:48:02--> 00:48:07

karate tells us a lot tells us that we should abstain.

00:48:08--> 00:48:18

Creating a human beings with the act of intimacy is a gift from allows content to be retained and practiced within the bounds of marriage.

00:48:24--> 00:48:25

Presented when you go and buy a car,

00:48:27--> 00:48:36

you walk into the showroom, we see this car selling in your head is in the window and the salesman come along and you look at the price in the window and you tell him

00:48:37--> 00:48:38

nice cover. I can't afford the

00:48:40--> 00:48:45

laughter of this comment, but I can't afford this guy can't. What does it say to you? What is what do you think he says to you?

00:48:48--> 00:48:52

Just to take you for a drive, you'll feel better afterwards. This

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

is the key.

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

And you take it for a drive and after you've taken for a foot after you take it for a drive, one drive

00:49:07--> 00:49:11

one drive just around the block. You thought it was a no no you Come on.

00:49:14--> 00:49:20

After you can make and make the biggest mistake of your life. You put yourself in debt to pay interest for another six years of your life.

00:49:24--> 00:49:26

And that is what happens short term tasting

00:49:27--> 00:49:28

in everything.

00:49:29--> 00:49:31

So our last one has liberated us

00:49:33--> 00:49:34

from all these things.

00:49:36--> 00:49:41

And finally, the last item in rabea hinami

00:49:42--> 00:49:57

Magna Carta was that Islam came to liberate us from the oppression of faiths and religions to the justice of Islam and I'm not suggesting that we should implement Sharia in South Africa.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

We are good citizens.

00:50:00--> 00:50:12

Allah, we understand our rights when the center responsibilities. And we were not saying that Sharia must be implemented in South Africa, at the same time, it's good to look back to see where we come from,

00:50:13--> 00:50:15

and who we are as a community.

00:50:16--> 00:50:28

In the time within areas, people say, you know, Muslims, if you stop to take over the world, you know, the cut of everybody's ends will be cut off. Everybody hates will be cut off, even his feet will be cut off. Other people have no feet, no legs, no AIDS.

00:50:30--> 00:50:46

But in the time of Hamas, Islam, it should happen. Nobody hates rolling, no hands rolling all over the place. Because a lot of farmers legislated the rights of everybody the rights of the criminals, the rights of the women, the rights of the men, the rights of everybody

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

has been given in Islam.

00:50:50--> 00:51:03

And many people today say that Islam is a violent faith, or religion brings violence into the world. It's responsible for the ills of the world. For Russia, it's an atheist country. Look what it's done now in Crimea.

00:51:05--> 00:51:12

Stalin was responsible for the death of a million people in the Second World War, the atheist country, China's atheist culture.

00:51:14--> 00:51:27

And it was the example today of a godless country where there is oppression is the worst in the world is North Korea. North Korea is God no God, nothing but the worst country in terms of human rights and freedom.

00:51:29--> 00:51:40

So it's not Islam and it's not religion. So human beings, the secularists say the people of the world they don't care they say, we should get rid of religion separate the state from separate religion taken out of our lives.

00:51:41--> 00:51:48

I worked for for K wV that's different from my when I go to the masjid to make Salah. That's different that's separate.

00:51:53--> 00:51:58

And we have this notion that suicide bombings comes from Islam and Muslims

00:51:59--> 00:52:00

with bad people.

00:52:02--> 00:52:07

We brought this into existence. The first people who started suicide bombings, kamikaze pilots, the Japanese.

00:52:10--> 00:52:13

Then the biggest suicide bombers are the Tamil Tigers.

00:52:14--> 00:52:23

in Sri Lanka, they started rolls, tying the belts around them, when they were fighting the instead, Lanka fighting the Buddhist day.

00:52:24--> 00:52:29

It is not a religion that inspires suicide bombs.

00:52:30--> 00:52:32

There is a book written by

00:52:34--> 00:53:08

a man called Robert pipe is a professor at Chicago University. He wrote a book dying to win a book on suicide, terrorism, investigated 315 counts of terrorism, people who blew themselves up. And in every single case, there was a political motive, not a religious motive. Unfortunately, for you and me, this book is also in PDF form on the day so you can download it, and you can use it a very interesting book. Because people blame Islam and Muslims. They say, well, the way says

00:53:09--> 00:53:22

suicide bombers are motivated by Jihad and 70 virgins in Paradise, and all that sort of nonsense. We swallow it. It's not about that. It's about justice. It's about how they feel about what's happening in their countries.

00:53:24--> 00:53:32

And about women, they say some oppresses women, no, some came to liberate women, the Catholic Church and I have a lot of respect for the pope in the Catholic Church.

00:53:34--> 00:53:44

But the Catholic Church in the 611 Pope Augustine 611, one year after the Prophet received revelation, what it Augustine say was the Pope of the Christian world.

00:53:45--> 00:53:51

He said, women have no souls. There are dogs and cats. They have been known as murder. So

00:53:55--> 00:54:27

there is Islam came and gave women the right to, to testify in a court of law, to pursue divorce to own property, to participate in the public system. And the right to inherit is no other religious book. Prior to the book of Allah, the Koran that gave women the right to inheritance, not the Bible, not the Torah, not the no book. The fourth religious book, written in certain misafir was 12 verse 12 onwards, gave women the right to inherit.

00:54:29--> 00:54:35

We fight about women Why can't women become imams be controversy in the Muslim world?

00:54:37--> 00:54:42

This MOS allows the death of liberating liberation of women. We mentioned becoming moms.

00:54:45--> 00:54:51

But a mommy moment is not the highest office Berenice how many moms in prison person basically leads a Salah is called NEMA.

00:54:55--> 00:54:58

Do you know that in Islam in the history of Islam

00:54:59--> 00:55:00

women can

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

reach the highest levels they can become Allah, they can become

00:55:04--> 00:55:15

transmitters of honey. In fact, the owner of honey tell us that amongst the women transmitters of Hadith, there is not one week women transmit of Hadith in the history of Islam,

00:55:17--> 00:55:20

that women was access integrity when it came to

00:55:22--> 00:55:29

transferring money from one person to another, their integrity kept in that they'd never transferred a recovery from one.

00:55:33--> 00:55:46

In a choice of the halifa women made to say that you can become alpha. Women are those of God as governors, and we read that a woman as she fell into Abdullah, Liberia in

00:55:47--> 00:56:01

October, she was given the Minister of Trade and Industry in Medina, she's given the portfolio to look after trade. In all the socks of Marina. She was a woman heinola

00:56:03--> 00:56:05

in charge of commercial conduct.

00:56:06--> 00:56:08

And finally, I just want to say that

00:56:10--> 00:56:12

the non Muslim say that Islam

00:56:14--> 00:56:21

when it conquered wherever it conquered, it made second class citizens of the Jews and the Christians under the domain

00:56:22--> 00:56:25

that the Christians had to pay jizya tax

00:56:27--> 00:56:28

What is his politics?

00:56:29--> 00:56:35

And they say, well, it Muslims are going to take over the world, then all the Europeans and the Americans in the bridge have to pay a politics.

00:56:38--> 00:56:57

First of all, machines pay much more than two and a half percent that repairs the corner jewelry and our savings and so forth and so on, is much more than jizya that's point number one. Number two, who pays jizya when Muslims conquer only men who are capable of fighting, only they pay jizya. And if they join the Muslim army, they pay no jizya.

00:56:59--> 00:57:03

But let me give you an example of the justice in this jizya.

00:57:08--> 00:57:08

Two examples.

00:57:10--> 00:57:12

One is hiring a new lead.

00:57:14--> 00:57:16

You know how the new lead

00:57:20--> 00:57:23

they conquered city and the concrete home city of homes.

00:57:26--> 00:57:33

And while the city of homes was under the dominion of the Muslims, somebody attacked the city killed some people

00:57:34--> 00:57:48

while calling me while he do he wrote a letter to the government of home saying I'm apologize I'm very sorry. You pay jizya and you are under our protection. And we didn't protect you. I'm giving back the jizya to every man who pages and homes.

00:57:50--> 00:57:51

So Pamela

00:57:53--> 00:58:10

our in Abuja Aziz, who's known to be the fifth halifa in Islam. under his rule, they conquered some our country was conquered, you know, summer containers Pakistan, second biggest city in Pakistan, very famous Muslim city, summer camp was inhabited completely by Christians, Islam conquered in a time

00:58:12--> 00:58:15

when the Muslim conquered, unfortunately,

00:58:16--> 00:58:19

they destroyed two Christian churches in the city of America.

00:58:22--> 00:58:33

When Omar Abdullah Abdul Aziz heard this, he said to the commander of the Muslim army, you go back to that city and you give the keys back to the Christian governor of the city.

00:58:34--> 00:58:42

But before you give the keys back, you first read both both churches, and then you give the keys back and then you turn around you come home, and you leave them alone.

00:58:44--> 00:58:49

Because you have failed in your justice duty towards a community.

00:58:50--> 00:58:55

You don't deserve to conquer that community. In what happened three days afterwards.

00:58:56--> 00:59:26

The Christian leader of the city came to the Muslim army and said, Please, we have accepted Islam we want you to be our rulers, because of the Justice given by by brought by the Koran and given by Mohammed Salah when the Muslim Congress Spain and the Catholics took over Spain, the Christians of Spain wrote a letter to Pope Urban and say the Pope Urban, we were ruled by the Muslims for 500 years. We would like to tell you that we'd like to be ruled by you like the Muslims ruled us.

00:59:27--> 00:59:31

We are not going to give up the freedoms that Islam gave to us.

00:59:32--> 00:59:50

So Pinilla this, my dear brothers and sisters is what human rights and freedom means. In a Muslim society, in a society ruled by the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam shukran salam aleikum wa rahmatullah autonoma olmak.
