This crisis is not only five years old. This crisis started two 300 years ago with the advent of capitalism. We mentioned Adam Smith earlier, the modern father of capitalism.

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

This crisis happened from this disease that has killed and murdered and terrorized humanity for two 300 years. Well light, check the UNDP report. every seven years or so 20 million children Africa died because there's not enough food, not enough food.

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

And we have this war on terror. Don't get me wrong, we don't believe in terrorism is wrong.

00:00:53--> 00:01:00

But we should have a war on capitalism when his ideas because it kills much more, many more people, millions. And by the way,

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

more people die of dog bites in America

00:01:06--> 00:01:11

than due to terrorism. I don't see a war on canines, a war on dogs.

00:01:13--> 00:01:19

So we have a we have a crisis. 20 million children every few years because of no food.

00:01:21--> 00:01:33

2 billion people living less than $2 a day, 1 billion people having no sanitation. Even in America, 50% of the people require funds from the government. 25% of people

00:01:34--> 00:01:38

need food stamps, or they live underneath the poverty ladder. I was in Chicago just a few months ago.

00:01:40--> 00:01:52

And I was hearing a story about a child she only goes to school because that's her only meal to eat. In Africa, in Burundi, the poorest country in Africa, children had to move.

00:01:53--> 00:02:08

America has become like Africa, because of its the systemic issues. Now we're not condemning America, we're not condemning human beings. We're condemning ideas here that facilitate this Carnage, this destruction.

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

Why is it that we have 60,000 deaths every day, just because of

00:02:17--> 00:02:20

bad water and no food?

00:02:23--> 00:02:35

Because it's based on a geopolitical myth that the capitalist want to teach you brothers and sisters, which is there are too many leads. Not enough resources.

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

Which is a lie.

00:02:41--> 00:03:23

It is a lie one because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith and telemovie he said the son of Adam, all he needs is food, shelter and clothing, defining our central limited needs. And he creates an economic philosophy of distribution, not of competition because there's so called too many needs and not enough resources. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 1400 years ago was in line with modern geopolitics. If you look at a study done by the Food, Agricultural Organization, they conclude there are enough calories on this planet. There's enough food on this planet to feed three planets. Not one but three planets. Allah azza wa jal is oh Rosa, he is the

00:03:23--> 00:03:40

provider. This is why I Li Raja Allahu anhu said in a very wise statement, when you see a poor person don't blame Allah. Allah gave us the resources. He's a Razzak blame the vollem blame the the oppressor who's created a system that doesn't distribute the wealth to this person.

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

This is Islam.

00:03:44--> 00:03:53

This is a song that would change the world, especially by economy to liberate human beings from the clutches of the of the slavery of capitalism.
