Allah C'mon la Vina nama Lavalle human and Nabina was a deity in our Shahada wa salam.
What hacer una una vaca Rafi ha circolo Avi
and then IV salatu salam to others in the famous Hadith
in Edina naziha in the deen anoxia prophecy read three times in Dean and associate in Dean and Associate
Professor Sallam said
that the Dean of Islam is the Dean of naseeha
so there's a harbor ask the Navy so Salam ala rasulillah lemon,
for who for who is ignacia and what is the word nasi amin?
The prophet SAW Selim said this Deen is in alcea Leela he Wali kitabi he was in a big worrier immaterial muslimin while I met him Oh come upon a vu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam let me say Salaam say this Deen is
and being sincere
to allow the navicent salaam said
to his prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam
to the leaders of Islam and the Muslims and to the whole community of Muslims.
So our first responsibility is to be sincere and faithful to align his Deen
and to make this faithful his insecurity
I pass part of our daily lives
in our parish to Islam.
Then every salon salon says my user Ella How are so the person the one who is obedient to Allah and His messenger.
Wally, he will be amongst those whom Allah is blessed and graced.
In that he on the day of judgment will be with the prophets,
the truthful ones, the martyrs, the pious ones were hacer una ola. karateka and what better company would you want on the death camera? Then being with the profits and the martyrs Subhana Allah and what do you have to do to be in the company of the martyrs in the profits, you have to be obedient to Allah and His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam.
Now it's always a joy for me and a pleasure for me
the day of Juma and to celebrate the hour of Juma
before I come to gym, I always am in a good mood until probably sometimes I get to Juma
and and i mean this good because I feel that I'm going now to the masjid
to carry out
that which allows what Hamilton has commanded me to do. I take a bath put scent on cut my nails, put my clothes on Mashallah
because this is what Allah wants from me.
This is what he's spoken about in his core and this is what his missions are Mohammed Solomon, had left for us. Direct to feed coma in Tama septum Bhima Kitab Allah He wasn't nothing prophecies I've laid for you two things after my death I have two things for you. The Quran and the Sunnah.
And if you cling to these two things length of the lava you will never go It's impossible to go astray. It's impossible for you to go astray.
what is what in doTERRA What did he leave for us Bahamas masala? What is it that he left for us in reality? He lived for us a dean called Islam a beautiful perfect
Way of Life,
something which we as a, as a community, as an oma, as a nation, as individuals can be proud of.
And we are proud of our deed. But what is this Islam which Allah and His Prophet had had given to us as a gift? What is it?
Is it for me to tell you what Islam is? Is it for me to describe Islam to you? Or do we leave it to Allah is messenger to tell us what Islam is? Because today, unfortunately, there are so many varied interpretations and phases of Islam, that we forget the original Islam. We forget that Islam, which is brought by Mohammed said, will never change under the FPM.
But the prophet has warned us about that he said,
but in Islam, or even Islam will start strange. What's the hurry ban? and Islam will again become strange photo ballyhoura so glad tidings to the strangers.
So the Sahaba Sahaba Surah Surah Allah Who are the strangers who are the same just be said, like so Luna and the facade Enos, he says the strangest will be those who preach the good, those who will do the good when people have gone astray when people have left the deen of Islam when people have changed it, when people have replaced it, when people have added to it when people have deducted from me. So what is Islam?
famous hadith of
Amara satara de la Tran.
And you know the Hadith when a man came to the Nafisa Salaam in the masjid, his clothes are whiter than white.
He's he was blacker than black.
He didn't have the signs of travel on him. And nobody knew him. None of us, knew him. And he sat down in front of the neuroticism with knees, knees against the knees of the Navy Salalah Salaam, and he said,
Oh, Mohammed, sort of sallallahu so tell me what is Islam?
So now we will hear what is Islam and this and Mohammed Hassan said Marisa Santo this man al Islam
and to me no Bella. No, what is Islam?
And tashahhud unterscheiden had Allah Allah Illallah
Muhammadan rasul Allah
wa to he masala ts zeca wa to suit what asuma Ramadan?
What will be in his tatata iliza Villa, he said, Mr. Salim said what is Islam? Islam is to believe in Allah to be what this that there is none worthy of worship except Allah.
To be what does that Mohammed Salim is the messenger and slave of Allah, to perform the Salah
to give this occur, to force in the month of Ramadan
and to perform the Hajj if you're able to perform Hajj.
And then he asked the messenger sallallahu wasallam What is he man? And the messenger said an email and took me to be law Who am I like it he woke up he was sorry. What do you mean?
He said, a man is to believe in Allah.
To believe in the angels to believe in the books, to believe in the messages and to believe that allows for how there is decreed good and evil.
And then he asked what is the sun?
What sun, goodness, purity, sun what is the sun and tabuteau lock and Katara for Atlanta contura in New York.
So nice to worship otherwise if you can see him
for very live you cannot see him he can see you.
So these three things form the wall and roof of Islam
Islam Eman and
mash mode. Allison.
You may not have heard of him.
One of the great savons of Islam in the indo Pak subcontinent,
died in the early part of the century.
He was asked
what is the causes of the decline of Muslims in the world?
And he asked it very simply.
He said the decline of Muslims
In the world, is because they've become alienated from the Quran.
And they are busy in fighting amongst themselves.
alienation from the Quran,
and fighting amongst themselves about pity issues.
So we have learned now that nobody saw Salam told us the ingredients of our faith.
He also told us that Islam will become strange to Muslims.
Today we've added
a fourth one to Islam Eman and Hassan. We've added the word spirituality.
Today I want to talk about this word spirituality.
Everything today's spirituality
everything people do today is about spirituality.
This is part of Islam.
Does Islam teaches spirituality?
is Islam devoid of spiritual Islam against spirituality?
First of all, we ask ourselves the question
What is the definition of spirituality?
In Islam, there is no definition of spirituality. In fact, in Islam, the word itself doesn't the Prophet never use the word Rouhani. Yeah, neither is it mentioned in the Quran not even once.
In 23 years of profit dude, the prophet never ever mentioned the word Rohingya or spirituality. It is non existent in Islam is an important fashion that has come to us in this modern age.
Why is it important fashion?
So, so, if there is no spirituality of Islam, then what is Islam?
First, what is spirituality?
spirituality is, I'm sure you watch. Sunday mornings, issues of faith, so many programs, all of them speak about spirituality, somebody sitting in a garden, next to a fountain close eyes, cross legs, spirituality, somebody else finds his face and goes into a temple and says spirituality. So Muslims Look at all this nature, but we are we you know, and we also a faith student, we also have spirituality, with our spirituality. So people ask Where is our spirituality? And unfortunately, people have used this to mislead Muslims.
Because what is what is? Why are we here? Why? Why is Islam and why are we here?
And what is the center of our faith? Why does he not speak about spirituality? Why because we have a man and taqwa
spiritually, you can't show anybody's per child.
You can't say this is the way you must get to know. Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam. 13 years in Makkah, he didn't make Salah, nor did he give zakah nor did He fasted Ramadan, nor did he go for Hajj for 13 years he preached only one word Eman and Islam.
In other words, he man is more important than everything else in the world.
Salah became found in Medina
fasting in a case called in Medina Hodge became fouled in Medina.
Salah became the oldest he's became for 13 years. The prophets are sounds life and as Havas both on the essence of faith of Eman image in war Eman in Allah subhanho wa Taala
our spiritual beings
allows creators as spiritual beings
or are we called human beings? Which one is it?
Are they spiritual beings? Yes, Allah created this village called Malika
la Suna La MaMa home. Wherever
Allah says about the angels, they carry out the commands of Allah to the letter
and they never disobey our laws ponder they spiritual beings from the day they were created until the day our last partner will let them die. We are human beings
and why are we here?
To become spiritual
is that the purpose suddenly becomes to what do you mean become spiritual? Should I sit in the magical spies Should I put up the light and stand and swing from one side to the other, that spirituality is my spirituality
having a spiritual guide who leader or person
and all these spiritual guides and leaders and persons
come to the shores of this country.
And they all tell us the same message
and different from you. I have contacts with you don't have
I can get things done for you with a master which you can't get done by yourself.
I speak to the dead and the dead house me
that that plays a role in our lives.
Muhammad Allah has Allah is a great as a scholar.
He wrote a book, he is a true Muslim, the belief of a Muslim
and he was asked the question
Can the dead help us can the dip help the living as the data role to play in the lives of people?
And he said I want to give an example.
he said say they are saying
rob the last line was a
was the grandson of who?
of Muhammad Rasul Allah.
He says in the Quran, help himself when he was alive at Karbala. How is he going to help you in his dead?
He couldn't help himself, save himself on Jeff Karbala. So how is he going to help us when he's dead?
be pleased with you.
Why are we
asked Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam asked him?
He said when a beta one asked him a beta and asked him. Man of the days a simple man came to him and say Dr. Salalah Why were you sent?
Why did Allah send you I was in 124,000 MBR before you, you are superfluous in a sense, why do you come? What is your purpose?
And he said,
boys leotta me Mama Karima
dvcam. I've come to create a community of spiritual beings. No, is it I have come to perfect and complete the character of men. the dignity of man the honor of men.
I've come to bring about an oma a community who will be just who will be fair.
A community who will concentrate on Islam without reforming the world, establishing peace and justice on the world. We are not a cut we are told to pray five times every day in the masjid. When it's finished, you go home or go to your job, go to your wife and go to your children.
La da da da da for Islam. We don't have banchory and nunnery in Islam.
We only have one retreat 10 days in the month of Ramadan. That is the son of Maha masala
boys to leotta Mima Makarem Allah Allah, I was saying to perfect, what does it mean? It means that we might have brothers and sisters are here to lead the world. politically, economically, socially, spiritually. That's our job.
That's a havalim such a Salaam
if there was such a thing as spirituality in Islam, they would have stayed in Medina and sit at the Prophet's mosque next to his grave to get what the people call Baraka.
What did they do? What did they do my dear brothers, they all left.
barring a few of them,
the majority of the Sahaba left Medina left the precincts of the Prophet's mosque, left his grave. Would you do that if you had a choice?
will sit next to the graveyard for the rest of our lives. You know, that's not the job of a Muslim job of a Muslim to go out into the world and to change it for the better, even if you only started his own house.
And we know the story of the man who sat in the masjid the whole day making bigger and Omar came to cut his weapon.
walked in and said get out of the masjid.
And Omar asked him why he was feeding you. He said having an arrangement of Abra de works.
What nonsense is this?
You are commanded to pray five times a day not setting the masjid. No, no no no.
I when a man bei wanted to bake What did he say he has a he has a he has an axe con work.
and inputted fed, which people feed on
doesn't exist in Islam. We have heard Islam a man taqwa.
Because what is the purpose of our lives by the obraz? Where do we want to go from here? What is Islam? And this image where do you want to go?
Is there any way which is you will enter gender by spirituality?
In which Deen in which deep interested in this Deen of Allah? What is the Prophet say? What is the key to paradise?
You know, what is the key to spirituality?
What is the key to paradise? Our Salah to Mr. Salah is the key to and that is where you want to be. But no, there is no other course spirituality
So these people come here
and some of them claim to be descendants of the Prophet. Somebody asked me to speak about this.
And I don't want to speak about it disparagingly because there are people who are related
to the family of the Navy SEALs Allah.
May Allah bless them for that.
And if there's any reward for him, Allah grant him the reward for it.
But the great reward is not to be a descendant of Muhammad, but to be of the Omar Mohammed.
The Graduate is not to be of the family of Muhammad, but to be of the own love Mohammed says.
There are many you can claim to be of the family of the Prophet.
But they've never follow the Sunnah nor the hora.
I'm proud to be of the oma homosassa
but let me say something about
claiming to be a descendant of the prophets of Salah. We know the Prophet had five children.
Uncle Sam Rokia, Xena, and Fatima
your two sons who passed away
all his daughters preceded him in death Xena passed away on the death of brother uncle soon passed with all of them. Their children died in infancy.
Thought about their two children, three children. for them. It hasn't been on kusumoto soon was married to Omar. And they had one son said
to the Prophet Livia, no male progeny, and that's where the Quran says. Makana Mohammed on ahead Mr. Raja Kumara kina rasulillah Hartman.
The Prophet is not the father of any men amongst you.
He is the Messenger of Allah, and he's the final prophet.
there are two ways of establishing lineage.
One is the metamodel method, lineal lineage, which is by your mother
and the other one is pactra lineage. lineage which is via your father patrilineal lineage is part of added custom always has been and it's enshrined in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala zapis 85
Oda own Li Abba him, call them by their father's names.
So I am five in the Mohammed bin Abdullah Agnetha, all my, my whole lineage is allow my father's line.
So the prophet and there are some societies
where the line is metal Alinea, like, for example, is an interesting example I'm going to give you now there's a tribe in North Africa. You'll find them in Algeria, in Nigeria and in Mali, they call the Tarik tribe t u a r eg you must have read about them. They also the people who assisted qaddafi in his struggle fought for him.
The two are a tribe are Muslims, but they have matrilineal
they you will find the toilet
Main cabinet faces that women don't.
Now you might say well the main cover their faces because of the desk but the women live in the same area. Why don't they cover their faces? Secondly, your status is determined by your mother, not by your father in the free trial.
The feminists would love this.
Thirdly, the women are all educated the men are all illiterate.
Fourthly, the women all owned all the movable assets in the communities like all the camels in the shaping their own all that
and their Muslim.
Imagine, I completely
I thrive of Muslims, big massive tribe dominated
by the mothers.
So Islam then as this patrilineal
lineage, so the lineage
Hussein has an Hossain was not the sons of Fatima
Hassan and Hussein was a stanza, Ali and Ali was the son of Abu Talib until the line goes up, doesn't go by the Navy. So yes, there are people who are family related. But you know, direct descendants is no such thing as I'm a direct descendant of the Navy system.
Then the other people who are related via his uncle's his cars, Abu Talib, and hams and so forth and so on. There are people in Makkah called Sayid, say take the the family relationship way before then Ibiza Salaam from his father's time already, but direct descendants general direction is gonna be so awesome.
we've saved that when the Prophet was asked what is our mission and duty?
I've come to know mobilize people, to empower them to give them status in the dunya
even the most old
cause people have this people say,
But you see, we need the spirituality not as our lives. There's something missing.
Something's missing. From No, not enough.
So no, no, no, not enough. Bahamas example and he's like, no, not enough. We need something more.
My youth a la hora sold. I quoted the verse Allah says he was obedient to Allah and His Messenger, they will be with the prophets in the eight and all the good people on the earth.
Even the master old says love the ultra
laser minimal in your coreboot agenda ilaha illAllah katama to convey, listen to the words of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. This Hadith is quoted by the way in the book or rissalah, which is a book written by Mr. Musharraf law. first book written on Islamic jurisprudence, he says,
He says, There is no act, there is not a single single act
which will bring you close to Geneva except I have taught it to you.
And I've given it to you.
While I'm on your call, reboot Ilana
and there is not a single act which will keep you away from the janitor but I have
prohibited you from doing it.
So the people who come today they say
there are other things also which will bring us to gender, excluding what the newbies are Salamat say to us.
So I received an email
the other day
inviting people to have more loot every Friday night.
A few years ago, I wasn't ready to talk about this issue. And I said what will happen eventually is we will go to such extremes this these celebrations will become extreme forms of you know you have extreme sports starts with driving at 40 kilometres now it goes up to 500 kilometers now.
So now it's boluda Alton on steroids.
We've gone from the bernado stage, we announced areas without driving at
speeds that will kill us.
So is that first it was revealed? Oh well, first it was the 12th my father celebrated and his father, then the month of rockville overnighting every Friday night.
And I had either quoted about salatu salam
to inspire people to attend these
but yo Mia Hades is an obese he was gathered at the mosque on a Friday night and make his mo lewd
Episode Seven, yes, he was put Salatin him we know when he told us when.
When we said in the Salah, in the trash out in the sujood we can make Salawat on him. After the Salah we make Serato him on the day of Juma we make Salawat on him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah commands us to do that.
witness's news income from
you see, so we end
we say Bahamas asylum.
You haven't given us enough?
We are insulting the prophet in the hora.
We are saying Salah key to Jana. Not enough. You said enough, not enough.
We have to do this.
I'm not saying it is right to it is wrong.
But I'm not condemning it. I'm saying
is this our purpose for coming here?
You know, we lived in a town called apartheid.
We were subjugated physically, politically, economically, culturally, mentally, physically, or we had all kinds of people died in prison because of apartheid.
It was like being in a shipwreck.
It's like a ship that crashed for us. And we took to the lifeboats.
What was the lifeboats? We visited the comets.
We had a picnic stay because we couldn't go anywhere else. You couldn't go to customers gardens to go and have a sandwich not allowed.
You couldn't go sit in cash on the beach no not allowed.
You're gonna go to gardens man sit on the beach or have a flat they're not allowed
to stay in a B flat any bosses LSA.
And the only places you could go to for recreation what you could go to the climate you could go to the only way you could get onto the mountain was to go to belvin thing. The only way you could get the Constantia was to go to the Grumman.
Those were the lifeboats. We had we celebrate the every tradition because those were the lifeboats. In the time of oppression.
Now the oppression is gone apart, it is gone. Now what now we should take the opportunity to build a new ship
the relationship of Islam.
But since we've been living in lifeboat for so long,
we think these lifeboats have now become the new ship.
And in fact, what we're doing is we're creating more lifeboats and more lifeboats and more lifeboats. Waiting retreated into ourselves in a country that needs so much.
People are looking for Islam where we are young Allah where they
know they invite us to what to come to imagine on a Friday night, and to make no loot. And the world is looking for Islam outside the masjid.
People looking for wisdom in the marketplaces. Young people are looking for Islam.
Allah should be doing research. No.
I'm not saying they're wasting their time.
I'm saying we live in a new era.
We live in Oh, we have to call people to Islam.
And we must follow the pseudonym Mohammed that is our yardstick. And as I say to you, how do how do they justify all these things? People justify going here people justify doing this. People justify doing that.
Profit never did any of the things which they doing. So what do they say? They say as I said, they say this is up to Otto Hashanah.
This is a good good bira
and we all are some of us say we support this good because you see
Islam is too weak to keep our children out of the clubs. So we
Create something else for them.
We put the lights off for them. We dance and we split them we say this is Deacon and we say this is Salawat we say isn't it better? La hawla wala quwata
What have you done your duty as a father for your children?
When your children need you on a Friday night Your wife needs you on a Friday. What are you doing you know most of the show
after the show should go home
spend time with your wife and your children your family that's your responsibility. Prophecy the best of you are based to their wives and their children.
Sometimes I think it's just another excuse not to be at home with the children or crying
when the wife is a bit moody
molana for Nana
we got it all wrong.
These yamamah were arranging these Think about your duty and responsibility. Your responsibility is law you must reform the world this is your job. Do your research published books
teach the people the Dean of allows
so they created this
big bag called beat adolescent and everything they throw in there which they can't which they cannot justify in terms of the of the Quran and Sunnah.
It's a parallel Sharia
the parallel Deen nothing to do with Islam. The Prophet has condemned it
one after 30 Oh, Professor I warn you about innovations in my Deen in this day the deen of Allah.
In Nicola know that in beta, every innovation in my Deen is a beta.
And every bidder Balala misguidance
Roku de la gente phenol, and every misguidance is in the healthier? I'm not saying so. I'm not preaching alpha doom and gloom. I am telling you what your Prophet said.
The Sahaba should tell them evisa salaam Yara Salama
What must we do? We can there's so much to do in the dean we can't fulfill it
properly how do we fulfill the dean would you have come with
Mohammed salsa you have come with the office
we have come with an incomplete Dean we must add to his dean of your spirituality. There's there's there's this there's this is all these things.
And what about the Quran which is at yo McNulty? lacantina calm today I have perfected for you You did
what dumb to alikum Namath and I've perfected for you my name upon you my favorite my blessing.
The blessing of the hidden I have to eat and Eamon
what I'll do to local Islam, Medina and I've chosen for you Islam as you deem
What about that?
are we telling Allah also
torina for us
and you know what you'll what you will send to DEF CON.
Everybody is involved in these
that has swept like a tsunami over my community. I cry about this a movement away from the Quran. alienation from the Quran. Only thing we do about the Quran is we read it. And we're competitions about it.
But we don't study the essence of this book.
We don't love this book above all other books. And we don't love the profits are sort of above all other other people. We should know martial arts Yeah. And martial arts in Cyprus and my chefs in Yemen and martial arts in Australia. And Marsha is in New York and my job is in London much.
I say I am a Muslim. My leader is Muhammad Salam and my mom is the Quran
because that is what been taught
the day of piano
because people people are people are people. Only people
My people you think that only people, but everybody's not.
So let's say my chef and this advert, this email goes around says you know why you must come to these gatherings because more and so on So come check so and so they mentioned about six or seven, Bolinas and chefs, and since that become the deep
that we must attend things because she
drifted so far away from the professor's
normally we say come because you know, Professor Sam said you must come, come Did you have because Allah says you must come to Juma comes around because Allah says come for Salah What do we do today? Say No you see but why don't you come
in wherever he loves you he comes you must come
out Yeah, we will shift this completely away from our Deen completely away from completely how
we act contrary to the dean and we use examples, which is not part of the de
la casa de la confy rasulillah he was the person with our example the best example phenos hula in the messenger of a mouse.
So on the Day of Judgment, all the poor people that was desolate
and mind you There are also good people,
good teachers who come from all over the world.
you will say call Nora hello and ask you what you know I say Mohammed I send you the Quran Why? Why did you do all these other things? And what will we say Ravana.
In uttanasana Kumara for Donna Seville. We will say Oh Allah we follow our leaders. Our shares are more honest, our moms our spiritual leaders. We will say we follow them sada Tanaka Marana for de Luna Sabine. And what did they do them as leaders Yala.
samina la de Waal
and you will say Allah, give them a double punishment and curse him with a mic as
If you want to mislead, mislead yourself,
don't take other people with you.
If you want to do the things which you do with our alum or an army wherever you may be smokers have a vinyasa room and do it by yourself. And his only answer will be answerable to yourself by sending emails and inviting the world
to something which the Prophet never invited to. Nor does Allah say you must invite to these things
you are going to be answerable
for that false or that
because we have one other that as angles of five times every day and you invited to come to the house of our last panel
and we have done for HUD
which was come forward.
So now allows for hamdulillah inshallah
you have listened to what I've said.
Think about what I've said,
and ask Allah for guidance.
ask Allah for guidance. So now last one will guide us to the Quran
where Allah make us, of the followers of Muhammad Allah.
May Allah make us of those who say when we ask Who are you we say I'm a Muslim,
not I belong to this group and that group and that group was people say, and we will
have we will have Lola
let us go back to our roots.
Let us be amongst those strangers at the profit refer to
those who do the good and cling to the good in terms of facade.
