Omaha alcohol and mbu. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:28

Somebody sent me a message this morning, a WhatsApp message

00:01:32 --> 00:01:39

and brought a smile to my face. Because he said to me that, I hope today you're going to speak about love,

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

and brotherhood.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

And try to be nice.

00:01:47 --> 00:02:00

Unfortunately, by the time he sent me, the WhatsApp, I'd already prepared my lecture. And I wasn't going to backtrack what I was going to say, which I normally don't do, and I wasn't going to do it. I think we all nice people, I think as

00:02:01 --> 00:02:14

Professor shields so aptly said that we all wired in the same way our brains all wired in the same way every human being wants to be loved and wants to love when he wants to be nice, and he wants to be comfortable.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:22

But unfortunately, you see, there's one person that will never leave us alone, and that he or she thought

00:02:23 --> 00:02:27

he always brings discomfort in our lives. And

00:02:29 --> 00:02:41

the creator of men, keeps a very watchful eye on us to see where the weather we escape the serious matters of life. Those things that really matter.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:48

And how we face those things and how we, how we relate

00:02:50 --> 00:02:59

those things to to other than us people or not then particularly to young people today, I would particularly like to speak to the young people.

00:03:01 --> 00:03:04

And it's about ISIS over Isola dice.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:09

It's also about a situation we find ourselves in.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:15

And it's also about, more importantly, the

00:03:17 --> 00:03:30

model that we use to discuss these issues. And that model is the model the swan that Allah speaks about no Koran of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:32

And furthermore,

00:03:33 --> 00:03:37

we also look at what we see around us

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

in terms of our own history, after the Navy Solanas.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:45

That is our frame of reference.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:51

That is where we get our insight from.

00:03:52 --> 00:03:56

Today, the journalists have become our movies.

00:03:57 --> 00:04:23

They make a fatwa in the newspapers to us. And we think it's like a factor. First in the manual says, oh, did you see in the court, they said in the newspaper, did you see on the TV, what they said? Did you see what so and so said, Did you see what Donald Trump said? and so forth and so on. So the media, the journalists become a tease. And the media has become our source of truth and information.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:41

So I want to say to you right from the beginning, that I am not going to frame my talk was in what the media says, Don't tell me about the media said this and don't say that the media is said that we Muslims have a media of our own

00:04:42 --> 00:04:59

media which will be applicable until the death Korea then media is called the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we as Muslims must ever lose sight of that no matter how many degrees we mess, no matter how much

00:05:04 --> 00:05:15

dexterity we have in terms of the technology that we've been given, we always go back for internatia, to fish a fainter nazar, to fish a

00:05:16 --> 00:05:29

pharaoh do Illallah Horus allows five lessons, if you differ in a matter, then the 32 alone is profit. That is the first place that you look. Because if you can't find a day, then obviously look somewhere else.

00:05:30 --> 00:05:41

So we live now in this time of changing innovation, a lot of changes going on a lot of innovations. So hon Allah, somebody downloaded the program onto my computer,

00:05:43 --> 00:05:52

of all the Arabic books ever published on every single subject in Arabic, to do with, with with Islam. So every book on Fridays, and for

00:05:54 --> 00:05:58

everything, every single book ever published, these people have made it a task.

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

To put that on the, on the on the on in a program, it's all in Arabic.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:39

And he downloaded this program on my computer, but about a month ago. So yesterday, he came over the day before yesterday. And he said, he said to me, let me just update this program, which I put on your computer updating me, let me just add all the new books that has come onto the onto into the world of Arabic terms of Hades and souls over and the right thing ran for 15 minutes, downloading the books it was uploaded in one month.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:52

So it tells you the vast amount of knowledge that's only in Arabic, you don't even talk about English, we only talk about Arabic. That is the vast amount of knowledge that we have at our disposal.

00:06:54 --> 00:06:56

And that is our framework within which we work.

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

So we live in the sea of change, and innovation.

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

We also live in a time of trials and tribulations.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:42

As I say to somebody this morning, our bottle has just been taken away from us. So he said to my son said to me, oh, what do you mean? And he said, you know, we used to call bottles Nay, we say to the child is your name, you know, so even that day has been taken away from us. So you know, and these things happen so fast. That Subhan Allah, you know, we have to keep up with why and what for and what's happening, and so forth and so on. Then at least a lot of Solomon was also lived in a time of great change.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:45

But he was always confident.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

He never hesitated.

00:07:48 --> 00:07:55

He never was indecisive. He never wavered. He was never reluctant to speak the truth as he saw it.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:01

And he was generally very unmoved by

00:08:02 --> 00:08:28

all the dissenting voices. There's a lot of dissenting voices. This one says that the other one says that, no, it was a man was a believer, a prophet, he stood his ground. And he believed in his Allah. He believed in the revelation to a century and never wavered upon that he never wavered on the fact that he will be the successful one. And Islam will be the successful faith. And then our faith is the basis faith.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:40

But unfortunately for us in the 20 in 2015 a lot of us are paralyzed by indecision, we can't decide come make decisions.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:43

And we blame it on others.

00:08:44 --> 00:09:00

We blame it on our chefs are more on our services, but you know my chefs so that's why you know, the other one says my mom says so and the other one says, You know, I read in a book you know, you must do it like this, the other one says, so we're all indecisive can't make up our minds on the truth.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:05

And we are concerned about all the fitna in the world that's going on

00:09:06 --> 00:09:11

the threats against Islam, the media onslaught against Islam. And you know when

00:09:13 --> 00:09:14

we should

00:09:15 --> 00:09:26

we should treat all this outside of our frame of reference of Quran and Sunnah we should treat with a with a bag of salt. Don't believe everything you see, only believe what Allah tells you what Muhammad Salam tells you.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:44

After all, Muhammad Salam was the outlaw par excellence in his time he was an outlaw, came to knock among these people stirred up a lot of travel trouble, then Brother against brother, father against son

00:09:46 --> 00:09:47

because of what he preached,

00:09:49 --> 00:09:53

yet, this outlaw eventually became the arbiter

00:09:54 --> 00:10:00

of the destinies of the whole of Arabia. He his decision became the final

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


00:10:02 --> 00:10:05

He was an unlettered man

00:10:06 --> 00:10:09

didn't have any education at all.

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

But he has become the eternal teacher

00:10:13 --> 00:10:14

of the whole of mankind.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:24

His ideology, his philosophy, is the only viable alternative to everything we see in the world today.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:35

Every other faith, every other ideology, every other movement, Islam, is that by which the world judges

00:10:40 --> 00:10:51

Time Magazine, which may not be on the shelves yet, I think it's coming probably on the shelves, today or tomorrow. These are the awesome copies available. Time magazine made

00:10:53 --> 00:11:02

a survey 2015 of who is who they nominate as Person of the Year.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:06

And Time magazine appointed Angela Merkel

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

as Person of the Year.

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

And I think basically she was given the status, because the name is Angel. Maybe.

00:11:18 --> 00:11:37

But I think because of the way she handled the EU crisis, the financial crisis, and secondly, because of the way she handled the refugee crisis, that she had the biggest heart in Europe to accept more than a million refugees from all over the world.

00:11:39 --> 00:11:40

But that is not

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

what is amazing about

00:11:48 --> 00:11:49

the survey that was done.

00:11:50 --> 00:11:55

The amazing part of the survey was who was number two?

00:11:56 --> 00:11:59

Who was the first runner to the most

00:12:01 --> 00:12:03

important person of 2015.

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

If you don't know you'll never guess. If you don't know who the person was. You'll never guess I can never case I don't think any of you can guess

00:12:14 --> 00:12:15


00:12:16 --> 00:12:20

say Yeah, probably you've know you've probably read the magazine, isn't it?

00:12:21 --> 00:12:23

You can't you couldn't have just guessed that.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:26

It is Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:30

Our worker al Baghdadi,

00:12:31 --> 00:13:04

whose name is not mentioned often in the papers, we don't refer to him at all, the only way to refer to ISIS for ISO. But Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, as you may know, is the leader of ISIS. And this man may check in place in Time Magazine, which is a Jewish magazine. And this was obviously done amongst more non Muslim people, if not all done was up from the writers survey in the Middle East with all the stuff going on. So it means that the West, the gods this man is a very important man.

00:13:06 --> 00:13:09

But who doesn't regard him as an important man, Muslims.

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

This is us this is the state of Islam and Muslims.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:22

Then the non Muslims are regarding heroes amongst us, and we will be blind to the heroes amongst us.

00:13:23 --> 00:13:24

And this is our history.

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

900 years ago

00:13:30 --> 00:13:31

900 years ago

00:13:33 --> 00:13:36

this book was published this year 2015

00:13:37 --> 00:13:41

by a man called john man, his name is john man.

00:13:42 --> 00:13:48

He wrote a book on Salahuddin at a UB and he called the book Saladin

00:13:51 --> 00:13:52

should buy this book.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:56

And he

00:13:58 --> 00:14:06

talks about, he equates and he compares Salahuddin to what is happening in the world today.

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

And it's an amazing parallel

00:14:12 --> 00:14:26

that Salah Diem, a UB who is recognized not only by Muslims or Hamdulillah, but also by the whole West as the hero of Islam. They regard him as a hero, the west of the gods Saladin as a hero.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:29

Of course, we also regard him as a hero.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:38

But the pen loss is amazing. And it tells you that history repeats itself. Saladin was born in the same city as Saddam Hussein

00:14:40 --> 00:14:44

Salahuddin Allah UB his name was used by the way

00:14:45 --> 00:14:53

his name was use of Salahuddin has given to him because of his work as a soldier as a liberator. He was born into Crete

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

and he travelled amongst the following cities. He grew

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

In Baalbek. barbic is a mountainous town in. In Lebanon, I was fortunate to visit that town.

00:15:08 --> 00:15:15

He loved his youth in Damascus is also central today.

00:15:16 --> 00:15:18

He had family in Aleppo,

00:15:19 --> 00:15:22

and he liberated Jerusalem from the Crusaders.

00:15:25 --> 00:15:30

The other parallels that we draw drew draw from from Salahuddin life is that

00:15:33 --> 00:15:36

Salahuddin became xalapa Dean,

00:15:37 --> 00:15:41

because there were three crusades that came from Europe,

00:15:42 --> 00:15:50

an amalgamation or an alliance. Between the British Catholics in the French Catholics in the German Catholics,

00:15:52 --> 00:16:17

they had lots of problems in their own countries, meaning the pope had a lot of problems because the pope 900 years ago, ruled Europe, the Catholic Church ruled Europe. And the pope decided for him to get out of his problems was doing create a monster in a monster created was the pagans that were ruling Jerusalem, which are the Muslims at the time. And he say to his people, in Jerusalem, there is the cross of Christ, the wooden cross,

00:16:19 --> 00:16:28

which which has become a symbol as Christians, and we must read the Holy Land of the Jews and the pagans, of course, referring to Muslims.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:47

And three to three ways of Crusaders came across the Muslim world, took possession of the whole of the Levant, which equals the levanta. The whole of the construct from Turkey, right to Alexandria, was taken over by the Christian by the Crusades.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:58

The world at the time look like the world today. In terms of the Division of Muslims, it was a time of the abasi Khalifa, the abasa, Khalifa was sitting in Baghdad, that was a Sunni,

00:16:59 --> 00:17:01

Sunni through Baghdad.

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

And in Egypt, there was a 30 minute Khalifa, a Shia halifa, which ruled Egypt.

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

Today, it's of course, the other way around. Today, the Shia rolling back Dodd, and the Sudanese ruling Cairo but you can see the division.

00:17:19 --> 00:18:02

And there was this constant war between these two factions as we know. And thirdly, the same parallel that I want to draw is that the Muslim world was more divided as it was today. Just like Israel is in trouble, the Jews are in charge of visa designers. And we, there's no way that we can ever see us that this logic net from Israel, at the time the Crusaders occupied Jerusalem and the Muslims, so no way that you were able to what they call the Franks, remove the Franks from the control of Jerusalem. So stalemate, the stalemate that we have was the same settlement that was in the Middle East 900 years ago.

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

And similarly, when Salahuddin raised the banner of jihad,

00:18:09 --> 00:18:21

when salahaddin raise the banner of jihad, against the Franks mean, the Europeans who came to conquer his land, the first people who told him he was crazy was the whole ama.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:25

This recorded this.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:27

First, he will say, No, no, no, no.

00:18:31 --> 00:18:34

What is this? I want to fight all these people leave them alone.

00:18:35 --> 00:18:41

He's like our PA, in the 70s. In the 60s told us don't speak politics.

00:18:43 --> 00:18:46

And no, don't speak politics in the magic that is totally taboo.

00:18:52 --> 00:18:54

They saying the same thing today. Done,

00:18:56 --> 00:19:07

take notice, and these people are bloodthirsty, and so on and so forth and so on. To get the same message. Mandela was a terrorist and black people were bad people serving and so on.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:12

And we've all scared that our sisters within America black people,

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


00:19:17 --> 00:19:41

So should you be an uphill battle also, there was a lot of division, every city had its own Amir and so forth and so on. So a lot of a lot of division. Or you think we divided today. This is this is a picnic. We have major states now in the Muslim world. We have Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Gulf states and several big states with their own airplanes and guns and whatever else totally useless. But still.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:59

We have we have in those days, we had nothing like we only had this boy running around, allowed in with his bare feet, but he had the he had this, this sense of mission. I have to liberate Jerusalem from the crusades, and of course the rest of the Muslim world as well. And he tried to get further

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

Any type of the CI afterwards

00:20:02 --> 00:20:04

today view we first tackling the

00:20:05 --> 00:20:11

the Shia shell. I know that some of you are sympathizers to the shells, but unfortunately, this is my platform.

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


00:20:18 --> 00:20:23

the scenario in the Middle East has changed dramatically in the last few months, maybe in the last month.

00:20:25 --> 00:20:40

We have acid having killed a quarter million of his own people, slaughtered them bombed to smithereens. You see it, I don't have to tell you what it's about more than a quarter million people, as a couple of million people are refugees.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:46

Most of the people kill within these NGOs is a new theory.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:53

And that the hexagon is is this historically, you can read about

00:21:01 --> 00:21:06

when the Americans realized what acid was during Obama,

00:21:08 --> 00:21:20

who we all cried when he made that speech in Cairo. Remember that Cairo speech that he made, we all sat in front of the TVs and we shed a tear. And we say the Allah shukran amin, you know, this man is going to liberate Jerusalem and give us back Islam.

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

If we still believe them after that big lie.

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

I mean, he was lying through his teeth.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:35

He's still like, we still the victims is the absolute zero.

00:21:36 --> 00:21:48

And we still say yeah, you know, America was liberated, kill him, you know, get rid of ISIS and get rid of ISIS. And you know, but what is happening now? First, there was supposed to get rid of arsenal.

00:21:49 --> 00:21:50


00:21:52 --> 00:21:56

who's supporting us right now? Who is against asset? Nobody?

00:21:57 --> 00:22:09

Iran is supporting us. And therefore the generals and army on the ground, has mobilized supporting us at and of course, the second world power, Russia is supporting us. And Americans, Americans go Whoo, hoo.

00:22:11 --> 00:22:26

Americans are saying, well, we busy with isel, you know, worried about the quarter million people were slaughtered. Even Americans themselves are disgusted in their own Republic and their own Congress for having dumped the Sunni Muslims, because that's what it is.

00:22:29 --> 00:22:38

So now we have this situation in 2003. And let me tell you something that ISIS had nothing to do with the war in Iraq nor the war in Syria.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:42

The war in Syria was formed in 2003.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:48

As you came into existence in 2013, I'm giving you the facts of history.

00:22:50 --> 00:23:14

So that nothing to do with that. And when the Americans came into Baghdad in 2003, what did they do? They divided the country into two the Kurds in the north, we all own was gave them a piece of land. And they gave back DoD and the rest of Iraq to the Shia. So no Maliki came. And he

00:23:17 --> 00:23:19

ethnically cleansed Baghdad.

00:23:21 --> 00:23:24

Today, you won't find a single TuneIn Banda.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:34

Do you know that to know that they ethnically cleanse all about that is a Shia city.

00:23:37 --> 00:23:47

And this has happened over harmony is when it ISIS come around 20 1310 years, almost a period of profits can in Makkah, doing excellent. not fighting it.

00:23:48 --> 00:23:59

So after 10 years, and of course the Americans organize it like that, that the Shia will be on top. The kids will get there and the kids will get it because the kids have all the oil

00:24:01 --> 00:24:02

and the zoom is

00:24:04 --> 00:24:12

no work for them in the army anymore. No look in the administration. No business links with them. They will isolate. They were

00:24:15 --> 00:24:17

there became non people in the gut.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:20

So what do they do?

00:24:22 --> 00:24:29

What can they do? What is the option they had? What is the option Mohamed Salah met after 30 years of oppression in Makkah.

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

He left

00:24:33 --> 00:24:34

and he saw the defending his stand.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:41

So that is how it came to being in there. Of course there are three names that are they started off with Islamic State.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:53

Then they became ISIS Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant because you know people have this kind of thing. Yeah, you know, but you know, they've, they've said nothing about

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

Saudi Arabia.

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

is nothing more Easter nobody says anything

00:25:04 --> 00:25:07

Katara says nothing about Israel nobody's anything they never threatened isn't

00:25:09 --> 00:25:10

quite as in threatened Giza.

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

Egypt hasn't threatened Israel but no ISIS as a threat and so you know, they must be an American

00:25:18 --> 00:25:30

plant Oh, started by America as well you know, people say you know, because your book teases me days in the 50s they may give the factor for you on who is supposed to do what who is right and who is wrong.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:46

Then, of course, that they are known as Dinesh in the Middle East and it is an acronym an Arabic acronym, it's not a swear word. It basically believes that Dola Islamia fill Iraq

00:25:47 --> 00:25:57

was Surya or sham. It means the Islamic State in the Levant in Iraq and intrusive half

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

of Sham of Syria.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:19

Some say they got 25,000 men under their control. Others said they got 5000 men under their control. But we know one of the first things they did was they removed the border between Syria and Iraq to try to clean the colonial border. That was a they took it away.

00:26:25 --> 00:26:37

This is in America now. They never threatened America. Maybe you came to threaten them. They're not fighting the Americans. All they wanted to establish was a place for Sunni Muslims in that part of the Muslim world

00:26:39 --> 00:26:41

and to defend Muslim rights in that part of the Muslim world.

00:26:43 --> 00:26:45

This was the Express

00:26:46 --> 00:26:50

Express intention of ISIS. Why?

00:26:51 --> 00:26:55

Because in the whole of the world today,

00:26:57 --> 00:26:59

there is not a single movement

00:27:01 --> 00:27:06

that is defending Sunni interests in the world. And what is your name? Sir Nicholas Ramiz from Sunnah.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:10

Sunni, Shia, those who

00:27:12 --> 00:27:19

declare Hamas Assad to be the enemy of Allah founded Abu Bakr Omar Osman Ali to be those who followed Him, who succeeded him.

00:27:22 --> 00:27:23

And so forth and so on.

00:27:31 --> 00:27:35

There are some parallels we can draw with al Qaeda and the Taliban.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:41

And is it important for us to know that? What is the difference? Is there a difference?

00:27:43 --> 00:27:49

ISIS in itself about and this is from the old website? So I'm not telling you what, I'm not a spokesman for them. I only tell you what I

00:27:50 --> 00:28:02

what is factual that they said we want to establish an Islamic State only in Iraq and the Levant. In other words, what was originally an Islamic State, the Arabian Peninsula.

00:28:03 --> 00:28:12

Al Qaeda, they had a different motive. They said, No, we want to establish a caliphate of the whole world, want to take over the world and establish a caliphate? I said, No, no, no.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:16

No, we only want to establish a caliphate here.

00:28:18 --> 00:28:22

But the west of course, realize that if they allow that day, of course it will spread.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:30

And of course, the greatest supporter of today, as I said on Wednesday night

00:28:31 --> 00:28:33

of ISIS is is America.

00:28:35 --> 00:28:39

And of course, the best spokesman faces is Donald Trump.

00:28:42 --> 00:28:49

I mean, if I was ISIS, I give him a couple of million dollars for the statement he made that he's not going to allow Muslims into the United States of America.

00:28:51 --> 00:28:56

I mean, that kind of advertising, free advertising, martial law.

00:28:57 --> 00:29:00

And other people can never get the kind of advertising

00:29:01 --> 00:29:02

So what it does is

00:29:04 --> 00:29:24

people like myself think so is that the actual reason for whatever you doing? You're now using the word not fundamentalists. You're not using the word terrorists anymore. You're not using evil ideology, Islam the evil ideology. Now you saying directly Muslims.

00:29:26 --> 00:29:28

Now fundamentalist Muslims, not terrorists, Muslims.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:38

Donald Trump said we should not allow Muslims in the United States to reconsider our policy.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:51

So that includes me and you when you have a beard or not have a beard wherever Cotto North Dakota, those distinctions are you with a with a woman wears a hijab or not those distinctions are now gone.

00:29:53 --> 00:29:54

Only one distinction now.

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

Between covered

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


00:30:04 --> 00:30:11

I can imagine when the Prophet got up, you know, in the harem, stood on Safa, the first speech that he made.

00:30:13 --> 00:30:20

And he made this distinction between those who believe in Allah and those who worship idols, I can imagine that the people have the same looks on their faces that you have today.

00:30:23 --> 00:30:29

Really, is it? Is this a division of the world? Yes, this division of the world.

00:30:31 --> 00:30:34

And of course, when you make that kind of division,

00:30:36 --> 00:30:39

there are consequences for me and consequences for them as well.

00:30:44 --> 00:30:47

And allows mounting a distance the consequences in the

00:30:49 --> 00:30:50

watch, I do

00:30:52 --> 00:30:53

feel like it

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

allows for the losses

00:30:57 --> 00:30:59

when you are threatened.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:21

Not because you threaten but other threats and new I mean, they make a big thing of the French province as I said, there's a French citizen cells with youngsters that were born they bred they they speak French, your mother's Aframe mother's father's third fourth generation turbo boost ins it came from outside doesn't terrorists. It came from outside of France and the

00:31:22 --> 00:31:35

French, but what are they do they blame all of us? You guys? Like somebody plants a bomb here. Then we say Yeah. What's your name? Muhammad? Oh, you represent the whole of the Muslim world. You are the problem.

00:31:37 --> 00:31:38

So what happens is,

00:31:41 --> 00:31:48

as I say, Donald Trump has done a big favor to ISIS because lots of young men are now radicalized. They say, Oh, is this what you say? So we're going to join ISIS.

00:31:53 --> 00:31:55

Allah talks about

00:31:57 --> 00:31:59

the establishment of justice,

00:32:01 --> 00:32:09

which was the mission of Mohammed Salah. His greatest mission was the mission of the establishment of justice.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:21

And our say to him after 13 years, remember in Makkah, there was no verses about jihad. Not a single time Allah say to him, fight the pagans fight the Quraysh.

00:32:23 --> 00:32:28

No, it is 13 years of absolutely taking.

00:32:30 --> 00:32:39

I hiding every single day from the parish. The first verse, it was revealed in Serato dakara came in Medina.

00:32:41 --> 00:33:01

And this verse was Wakata roofie, Sabine, Lila Hilah, Dina McCarthy, Luna, come and fight those who fight to Muhammad sallahu wa, Tada. Do. But do not overdo what you do. In Allah, Allah. Allah doesn't like those who extend themselves beyond fighting you fight, fight the battle, finish and go home

00:33:03 --> 00:33:10

and do it properly. Don't kill children don't kill women, and so forth and so on. So many people say, Yeah, but now what about ISIS, look at what they're doing.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:19

You know, they bent the spider to live in a cage and the killing people in their mass graves is found and so forth and so on. And they must be bad people are

00:33:20 --> 00:33:29

not going to be excused for them to study and make an excuse for them. I'm not gonna even say that the the press is lying. I'm gonna say to you that yes.

00:33:30 --> 00:33:46

Islam doesn't have the monopoly on violence. Islam has doesn't have the monopoly on hurting on killing. on making war. Everybody does that since the beginning of time. And if people do wrong, we should say they've done wrong, no matter who they are.

00:33:47 --> 00:33:57

But we should also not condemn the whole lot of them because one person that made a mistake, we should say Allah, forgive them for the mistakes, they did not repeat those mistakes.

00:33:59 --> 00:34:01

But the good that they do we support

00:34:02 --> 00:34:04

trying to read the Arabian Peninsula,

00:34:05 --> 00:34:16

of the stench of the colonialists. That is what we need to support as Muslims and any person who waivers in that needs to tell me what my choices are.

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

If you say don't support I say to you now what what is my choice? Give me a choice. Ask me now.

00:34:25 --> 00:34:30

You want to buy through the world Western world? You want America to move the rule the Muslim world?

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

The one want Israel to rule the Muslim world. What do you want? What is what what is your alternative? Give me an alternative. Give me a real alternative. And alternative proven on the ground. Give me an alternative.

00:34:46 --> 00:35:00

What was abubaker is alternative in Makkah, what alternatives do they have? They only had one person Mohammed's role also saw the head and they stopped by him. They stand by and through thick and thin. They stopped by

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

him and a lot of his competitors also committed atrocities. We know that the the famous one where there's a hobby I think of say Dalio killed him and he was on the ground. And the man said Russia, La ilaha illAllah. He still killed him in

00:35:16 --> 00:35:27

prison atrocity, killing a fellow Muslim prophet is very angry. He had an excuse. He said he thought he was just saving his life. That's why I decided to kill him. And in the moment I killed him.

00:35:28 --> 00:35:32

Now, can we condemn the Sahaba for doing it? Can you condemn Islam for doing that?

00:35:34 --> 00:35:39

You have to contextualize everything that you see, allows us in a way that allows Allah says in the Quran,

00:35:41 --> 00:35:42


00:35:43 --> 00:35:45

Allah says, kill them wherever you find them.

00:35:46 --> 00:35:56

Now, if you read that, out of context, if a non Muslim COVID, is see what your Quran says, kill, you must kill all of us, wherever you find us. That's what your Bible says.

00:36:02 --> 00:36:07

But we know that is a context is context is when the Quran said already

00:36:08 --> 00:36:23

pressed and killed and burned and everything to the Muslims. Then Allah said, Now the time has come. Now when you find them, you kill them. And even if you do that, if you fight them and kill them, you shouldn't go beyond the limits which are lost on today's as latency.

00:36:28 --> 00:36:29


00:36:35 --> 00:36:42

I told you the difference in ideology between people like the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda and ISIS,

00:36:43 --> 00:36:46

Al Qaeda was into exploiting the revolution.

00:36:48 --> 00:36:54

like Iran was into 1979. I remember, they were exporting their revolution to the rest of the world.

00:36:56 --> 00:37:18

Foremost difference between Stalin and Trotsky, those of you know, communism is stable, no Stalin, Stalin was the one who wanted to establish the Soviet state only in Russia and Russian territory, whereas Trotsky was the internationalist. He was the one who exported communism to the rest of the world, to Cuba, to East Africa,

00:37:19 --> 00:37:29

to China and I mean, further afield Indonesia. And even we have Mashallah old Communist Party still eating bread in this country for whatever reason, I have no idea.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:39

So, so, so, I So the aim is just to confine themselves to establishing the what is

00:37:40 --> 00:37:54

halifa Islamic State is what we need is what we want. This is what Islam says this is was the the the heyday of Islam, that we had a leader who would take up would stand and defend Islam and Muslims.

00:38:01 --> 00:38:07

and if we talk about violence, then the Americans killed more than a million people in Baghdad.

00:38:09 --> 00:38:17

And more than a half a million children died because of the embargo that United Nations that instituted against Saddam Hussein.

00:38:18 --> 00:38:19

They didn't allow even

00:38:21 --> 00:38:24

powdered milk to go into children died.

00:38:25 --> 00:38:27

The hundreds of 1000s

00:38:34 --> 00:38:35

so we back to the time of sala de

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

la Yogi,

00:38:39 --> 00:38:41

we back to the time

00:38:42 --> 00:38:45

of the Meccans struggle of the Navy so lonesome

00:38:46 --> 00:38:53

and these only case of but the important thing is where do I stand? Now there was Hobbes name Assad.

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


00:38:58 --> 00:39:00

can't get to his father's name No.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:03

No, hello.

00:39:05 --> 00:39:07

Probably come to me. Sad the Sahabi

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

when he died

00:39:13 --> 00:39:16

jabril came to the sunset Yasser Allah.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:19

somebody died.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:27

And the throne of Allah is shaking because of the death of the Saudi.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:34

So this is not something light for the Prophet azabu diagnosis are bad.

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

What did he do?

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

There the throne of Allah so I'm not sure when he died.

00:39:44 --> 00:39:46

He was a human being like me and you.

00:39:51 --> 00:39:53

He had one discerning quality that

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

others habit.

00:39:57 --> 00:39:58

He was

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

Allah describes in the Quran Allah vena cava, Laura Bonilla Tomas de como. He said Allah is my Lord, full stop and I stand on that mirror what he never wavered at all. In his defense of Islam and love for the prophets of Salaam and love, who is Dean and love for jihad.

00:40:20 --> 00:40:26

Today, the waist has made us believe that if you mention the word yard, they're gonna send the drone over your house and kill you.

00:40:29 --> 00:40:31

And Muslims have become afraid to use the term.

00:40:34 --> 00:40:41

Women have become afraid to wear a scarf now in the in the in the world in the West, because they say you know we are going to be under attack.

00:40:43 --> 00:40:44

So same with jihad.

00:40:46 --> 00:40:48

So they don't speak about jihad.

00:40:49 --> 00:40:50

Somehow we

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

we've ditch all the major parts of office. This is supposed to be the sixth pillar of Islam giant, what his job to defend justice,

00:41:02 --> 00:41:03

to defend the poor and the oppressed,

00:41:05 --> 00:41:08

and to be willing to give you a life for that struggle.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:14

If you look at

00:41:15 --> 00:41:17

the world as it is today,

00:41:18 --> 00:41:21

then you must remember, we must be like silent.

00:41:24 --> 00:41:31

He was even most steadfast in a sense, stronger than sometimes there is

00:41:32 --> 00:42:03

an incident. I remember, at the time of the Battle of the duck, when there was an alliance, the one up against like today you have 63 countries lined up. No more today about asset is known as all about eisel. Now, and I always ask myself the question I said, I maybe ask you the question as well. How come 63 of the greatest countries in the world or the best armaments cannot wipe out ISIS in one hour?

00:42:04 --> 00:42:06

How's that not possible?

00:42:07 --> 00:42:12

Read in the New York Times the other day that America is running out of bombs.

00:42:14 --> 00:42:16

So I'm thinking about Saudi running at about 120. And

00:42:17 --> 00:42:22

the French is bombing the Russians are bombing the British are bombing, the salience of bombing?

00:42:23 --> 00:42:24


00:42:25 --> 00:42:44

How's it possible, ISIS is still functioning? I mean, they still going on? You know, they, they're running as they're running an Islamic state of 10 million people, then municipalities are providing water, electricity, a justice system, a post office at works, street lights at burn cars that run on petrol, like a normal city

00:42:46 --> 00:42:47


00:42:48 --> 00:42:49


00:42:51 --> 00:42:58

we must be something wrong is something something doesn't add the mathematics doesn't matter. The math doesn't that doesn't make sense to do.

00:42:59 --> 00:43:03

Maybe it doesn't make sense because a lot longer has mango on the bones fall in the wrong places.

00:43:05 --> 00:43:16

Well, maybe maybe it is or some other change. And all these bombings that they do is all about what all about taking all the money out of the Middle East? Because what do you think of paying for those bombs?

00:43:22 --> 00:43:29

Who's fighting the Shias in Yemen? Who is so dead scared of this year? So it was buying the bomb will pay for the bombs.

00:43:30 --> 00:43:37

Qatar Saudi Abu Dhabi is even an open an embassy in Israel in Abu Dhabi in this climate at this time.

00:43:41 --> 00:43:42

So what choice do you have?

00:43:47 --> 00:43:48

So really,

00:43:49 --> 00:43:51

if we

00:43:53 --> 00:43:57

say that ISIS is a terrorist organization, which I don't say,

00:43:58 --> 00:43:59

I say

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

that I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that ISIS remains strong to defend the Sunni interest in that part of the world.

00:44:09 --> 00:44:20

And I pray my second two eyes, that whatever mistakes they make and whatever things they do, which is not in accordance with Islam, or Lawson should forgive them number one, and two, they should be cleansed of that part.

00:44:22 --> 00:44:31

I mean, Professor Rashid said on Wednesday night, when he saw this cage of the Lebanese pilot it was burnt alive inside this cage metal cage.

00:44:33 --> 00:44:35

He said, but you know, this is barbaric.

00:44:36 --> 00:45:00

And he he read the story about this pilot today in pilot and what what he did, he was one of the pilots who kaput bond Raka Raka Zi, the capital of ISIS in Syria. He was in charge of carpet bajada carpet bombings, carpet bomb as you start bombing from point B from point A to point B and you kill everything in between point A

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

pinfold, you drop bombs like that.

00:45:03 --> 00:45:08

And you kill every dog, cat, mouse human being woman child in that particular area.

00:45:09 --> 00:45:16

By using what nakum napalm they used in Vietnam, it's an agent that burns you

00:45:17 --> 00:45:19

takes your flesh off your bones.

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

So in ISIS is viewed was, this is what you did.

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

This is commensurate with a punishment, which you're going to get.

00:45:35 --> 00:45:39

So those are some of the things which, which maybe we don't know about.

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

But I was asked myself, Why do Muslims judge they own so harshly?

00:45:47 --> 00:45:49

and others, they don't judge so harshly.

00:45:52 --> 00:45:58

So my last one login in Sharla. two things. One is that

00:45:59 --> 00:46:01

and I may be completely wrong in this, but I don't think

00:46:02 --> 00:46:09

maybe I'm just stubborn. Maybe because I don't see any other way I'll trust maybe because I understand that part of the world.

00:46:19 --> 00:46:21

And I always say united say if

00:46:26 --> 00:46:27

the South African Air Force

00:46:29 --> 00:46:33

should drop a bomb on the Vatican. What do you think the Catholics will do?

00:46:37 --> 00:46:38

What do you think they will do?

00:46:39 --> 00:46:44

It will radicalize every single Catholic not only in South Africa but in the whole world.

00:46:47 --> 00:46:52

We will become the target of every single Catholic in the world, isn't it sir?

00:46:58 --> 00:46:59


00:47:04 --> 00:47:06

so many bombs have been dropped on us.

00:47:09 --> 00:47:12

And we still silent we still support the aggressor.

00:47:13 --> 00:47:25

Because if you don't support the person who's fighting for you, there is supporting the aggressor. You supporting America and France and Britain. you clap hands when they go in there and bomb everybody out of existence

00:47:28 --> 00:47:29

be likes I

00:47:31 --> 00:47:34

was gonna tell you the story of sad in two or three minutes

00:47:36 --> 00:47:37

the Battle of hanbok

00:47:39 --> 00:47:55

Professor Salama gone to the heart of some of the tribes that were involved in the alliance against and he said again repeating himself repeating itself profit made secret negotiations with some of the tribes profit went to them secretly and say to the man

00:47:57 --> 00:47:59

don't fight us don't join the Alliance

00:48:02 --> 00:48:08

I will give you a third of all the crops of Medina if we don't join the Alliance

00:48:12 --> 00:48:16

so they said the hottest answer to that is Assam we'll think about it.

00:48:18 --> 00:48:33

And the Prophet came back to Medina and thought well let me let me consult some of my max hobbles done this on my own but let me let me see what the any when to side side was one of the leaders of the answer. And he said to side you know, we'd be in a difficult situation

00:48:35 --> 00:48:52

we only have about 3000 men and I can see it's about 15,000 men is going to come to Medina and destroy all of us * our women and children and destroy so I made a deal with a hockey fan and asked him you know, after I told him I'm going to give him a third of our of our crops.

00:48:53 --> 00:48:58

And sod looked at the provenance era Salalah he says revelation then Allah tell you to do this.

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

Because they see Now where did this come from? Is it promising what I just thought to myself, you know, I have to protect my people and I'm going to enter into a deal I'm gonna make a deal. society

00:49:12 --> 00:49:14

to the prophets of Allah.

00:49:16 --> 00:49:20

When we were pagans in Medina before you can when we were pagans,

00:49:23 --> 00:49:25

and Jews living in Medina.

00:49:26 --> 00:49:31

We never gave anybody a single date for a present. People have to buy it from us.

00:49:33 --> 00:49:59

You think we now are going to give it to our enemies? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. We will fight to the last man but we're not going to give our crops away to anybody in the Navy says and William said Mashallah. That was the kind of Muslims that surrounded the NaVi salatu salam. That is the kind of message we must become. And that is the kind of person we should even if it is only in our heart, it is only the heart and these are some scenes in the Hadith which I quoted in the beginning.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:01

He says

00:50:04 --> 00:50:11

my motto was the person who dies and is never gone for jihad, which is all of us.

00:50:12 --> 00:50:13

Now, so up to now,

00:50:15 --> 00:50:30

you have to be enough, sir. Number one, he didn't go number two, he never thought about going, he never spoke to himself and said, inshallah, when the time comes, I'm gonna be ready inshallah, when the time comes, I'm gonna be ready inshallah. I'm not gonna, I'm going to go on if it's defensive Islam gonna go he never

00:50:31 --> 00:50:34

What about that person? says not Allah Shabbat.

00:50:35 --> 00:50:39

Maybe Sam says he will die. And part of him will be a monastic.

00:50:40 --> 00:50:59

Just because not because he didn't fight injured because he never even thought about. And society had this idea. He said, No, no, no, no, no, no. Give them a crock. We're never gonna do that. So what was his? What did Allah think of it? The Throne of Allah Xu.

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

such a

00:51:02 --> 00:51:06

wonderful personality Adi, such a great man who died

00:51:07 --> 00:51:09

for only the words that he said

00:51:10 --> 00:51:22

he didn't do anything. Only the words that he said that was just the words the support that he gave to the cause of Islam and for Jihad feasibility, lack of analysis can be met on caution. Jonathan

00:51:25 --> 00:51:27

says the likeness of a good word.

00:51:30 --> 00:51:39

is like a good three. Actually. It's rooted deep in the ground. Well, we're, well, federal

00:51:41 --> 00:51:42


00:51:43 --> 00:51:45

and the branches stretch far and wide.

00:51:47 --> 00:52:06

So support the good and the bad, don't stand back. If you need to say something then say, don't say a vocal said morasso by means of a Siddha you know, unfortunately, he has said you know, Ada Greenwood omega. That kind of is fantastic.

00:52:07 --> 00:52:10

As you have the opportunity to say is

00:52:12 --> 00:52:15

as my friend was killed golf, sir.

00:52:17 --> 00:52:19

The kid on the last theater here

00:52:20 --> 00:52:23

safer million safer on May 1 we have from

00:52:25 --> 00:52:32

from liquid lacasa Moses, Moses. I'm just being facetious. But that's how we think.

00:52:33 --> 00:52:53

And imagine we all start speaking the truth. We all start voicing what we feel to be the truth, the world will change. Kalamata Allah says good word, like a good tree planting a tree planting a tree and the branches that tree will go very far and wide after you're dead the throne of Allah will shoot because of the standard you Take.

00:52:55 --> 00:52:56

Take the right stand

00:52:57 --> 00:52:58

and say the good word.

00:52:59 --> 00:53:06

Now lasagna and feel happy when you do it. Don't feel happy Muslim settled I want to say

00:53:07 --> 00:53:11

to my wife, my children, my friends said in a good way and set in a nice my Jamaat

00:53:16 --> 00:53:32

so finally I say to you, I'm saying all this timber ISIS and I'm not saying support ISIS. That's my job. My job is not to say as a support as a support. I'm not here to to to say back to beef.

00:53:33 --> 00:53:44

I'm just here to convey to you how I see the world around us how we compare to the world of Mohammed salah and our compared to the world of a man like salah

00:53:46 --> 00:54:03

and it's for us to make those links in our mind. Like the links make the connection. And then we ask Allah for guidance. Your guidance me, Oh Allah give me the guidance. So I may accept what is true and leave what is not true.

00:54:05 --> 00:54:07

What about Allah Solomonic tomorrow?
