00:04:02--> 00:04:05

religion 70 of your home's

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

active justice work in the background, to act justly

00:04:17--> 00:04:20

fight the cause of religion and expel you from your own

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

races

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

and whatever

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

that is those who are wrongdoers

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

with our program

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

by

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

the

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

way

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

To read

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

in the book,

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

they got

00:06:19--> 00:06:19

a lot of

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

cases, greetings to all of

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

the honorable hosts the

00:06:37--> 00:06:42

establishment and many amazing maintainers of this wonderful

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

Center, which is one of the most impressive

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

have been in myself

00:06:52--> 00:06:54

a long time it is so good

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

to be here, bless you, and all that you do.

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

And they are coming together story so much good and useful benefit.

00:07:13--> 00:07:20

How justice is the other religion is, of course, like most of the system can be

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

in many different ways.

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

I'd like to just make a few points

00:07:30--> 00:07:36

from a particular perspective. And then we'll move on to listen to the

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

show.

00:07:40--> 00:07:44

The first time I'd like to make is that is

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

the foundation

00:07:49--> 00:07:52

the attitude is learned

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

should have other

00:07:59--> 00:08:05

other states does not create a situation where the

00:08:07--> 00:08:08

director decided

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

and hence the only way that the patient

00:08:16--> 00:08:20

will not be reconciled with

00:08:21--> 00:08:30

his true antagonists. So we mentioned earlier this, this day, a lot of times are

00:08:31--> 00:08:39

on an idealistic refuge with the love of your closest being in the window. One last thought on

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

that we'll go with

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

that very good believers the most

00:08:58--> 00:09:13

whether they just had one of our business operation, and the sometimes mistaken for an issue of growing your time here and zero anymore, man.

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

Anyone who believes in God, so that was

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

a

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

very warm

00:09:29--> 00:09:36

keynote here on the show they re meaning they're eligible for paradise.

00:09:38--> 00:09:49

They don't have to worry about your health, or the grief and the torment that accompanies that. Now they want to be associated with this first, but what is among the

00:09:51--> 00:09:55

most the most is that other members of other

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

particular circumstances can

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

Video paradise. So there is no

00:10:08--> 00:10:34

in terms of diversity and granting people paradise, as you said, it's the basis for a special type of relationship that was generally very rare in the modern world, and that is relationships built on tolerance and mutual respect, this is an enduring characteristic of insanity.

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

sensitivity

00:10:37--> 00:10:50

is providing the basis as you said, For by recognizing that and by recognizing that others can have an incentive decided to die

00:10:52--> 00:10:55

for a miserable and good relationship

00:10:58--> 00:11:03

V and V defenses that those relationships they should be

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

a dialogue as an assumption, and not

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

so

00:11:13--> 00:11:18

much mind default, but how to use local approach to issue

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

what

00:11:24--> 00:11:24

is

00:11:26--> 00:11:30

called the local wisdom and beautiful.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

The best

00:11:37--> 00:11:44

breakdown in communication besides zoning is screaming, it's not time to call it

00:11:45--> 00:12:16

is time to just acknowledge that there's a certain point where apparently this person won't be able to just remain silent, who was he me Are you in your way and for me is mine. So, this is from the beauty of the design, then incumbent upon us as Muslims to learn in the modern world, because these are the games that have helped to facilitate

00:12:18--> 00:12:36

the discussion a situation where the pre modern condition of war and conflict as a norm between the people has been plagued by the modern condition where conflict between people

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

is the exception, but there are people who would like

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

to because they have a lesson

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

in common thing they benefit from conflict

00:12:54--> 00:12:58

from people as often as most of this appropriate

00:13:00--> 00:13:05

we have these what he calls the whatever your what do you what is the

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

one

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

who does

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

not have the visual not as a theologian, philosophers,

00:13:22--> 00:13:28

but preachers, but as an as my community to

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

provide

00:13:32--> 00:13:32

a

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

nice relation with others

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

than overhead in terms of how to do less

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

than a year

00:13:55--> 00:14:09

over it, there's no motion is a Celtic history. Of course conversion is unacceptable that would be why because to clearly distinguish

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

jazz

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

to become

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

so comfortable to

00:14:22--> 00:14:27

clearly distinguish from parents so that you can know

00:14:29--> 00:14:50

if this is the lights off in this room, and it's totally died. Then we turn the light on and we can see each other you can see the beautiful woodwork that is doable carving that fear and the beautiful faces of the beautiful people. We don't need anyone don't force us to do economics

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

itself.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

So we know we do

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

To be forced to accept this religion, because religion is the truth that is that it speaks for itself. But

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

in accepting what will happen

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

when

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

the truth is come, your boy, whoever please we

00:15:24--> 00:15:34

go. Again, this provides a basis and it provides a set of principles for us to deal with each other in this

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

fashion,

00:15:39--> 00:15:45

peaceful coexistence because there is no basis for me as a Muslim, for you to become

00:15:47--> 00:15:53

doing the kind of the political faction of the time going toe to

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

toe overwhelmingly Joe

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

mentioned this morning

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

for the Constitution, and most of the eager to reach 50% 500 years in Syria,

00:16:11--> 00:16:29

never had a majority in the Indian subcontinent, even though they have control better when they go to school to become a military might have to do that. Muslims again, and now most of the suffering because of that, because now they're

00:16:30--> 00:16:37

lost political power and immediate, persecuted the same thing in the Boston

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

bombing of Serbia, and those

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

are the

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

century and the

00:16:47--> 00:16:54

military mindset very easily for people become, but they set up a system of poverty.

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

And then communities now fulfill community goals.

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

And if you don't know that the Ottoman political power has passed Muslim minority identity saw both in the early

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

1990s they were persecuted in a very brutal and inhumane way.

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

But

00:17:21--> 00:17:32

that is a consequence of the approach that Muslims have towards other faiths. So we we call,

00:17:33--> 00:17:38

to discuss we call people to respect and consider what we have.

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

Like the way you

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

used to come with the

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

data

00:18:05--> 00:18:11

with you. So put all the pieces of the book come to a common word between us and be

00:18:16--> 00:18:19

talking to them. And we know some of us don't pick up

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

other than if

00:18:22--> 00:18:24

they turn away.

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

And

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

they're one

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

of those.

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

So if they turn away, take them off.

00:18:41--> 00:18:48

Bear with me, as he goes, to die. So these are the approaches,

00:18:49--> 00:19:34

again, is important because they COVID they are should cultivate in the most absurd mentality, a circle hosted by a certain approach to relations with others. And that approach is an approach that is conducive to not only the perpetuation of the great advantages that humans collectively have made in terms of tolerating each other in terms of establishing pluralistic society, but also to build on as you know, professionals and just remove the underlying causes that threaten the erosion, and even possibly the elimination of

00:19:35--> 00:19:52

such as wasted. So there's a principle that encourages cooperation. But it's another thing to have a set of beliefs that undermine and remove the possible sources of

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

causes that will render your printable infested. So in turn caused this

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

mutually respected causes mutual cooperation and call to this mutual talent. But it also calls for the elimination of racism. For example

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

No, come

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

over

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

here
