Brothers and sisters Welcome to another session a new prophet alayhi salatu salam. And after Ibrahim alayhis salaam Salaam we've discussed Nutella Salam and Ludo ashram was discussed because he was the nephew of Ibrahim alayhis salaam Salaam in his time he lived and that's why he was discussed. And
straight after Iranian malaise Salaam Salaam was supposed to go into his maryalice salam is heartily Salaam because they were the two sons of Abraham and Islam. And straight after that was supposed to go into
yaku Bala Salaam who was the grandchild of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and then going to use Walesa. But there's another prophet in between alayhi salatu salam and he is shy, Elisa. Now why are we discussing srivalli salaam is because he came not much after
not much after Leute Ali Salam and that is mentioned in the Holy Quran that his time and the time of Luth Ali Salaam was quite close. And the reason why we mentioning him first before we go into these other prophets, who are the progeny of Ibrahim alayhis salam is because once we discuss one of the children of Abraham and I serve ceram logically we want to just continue in a whole series. And because Shabbat shalom is going to fall right in the middle, break the sequence. That's why we're going to cover Sreenivasan first and then return back to this Mary is hack yaku and Yusuf alayhi salatu salam.
srivalli salam was sent to a place called madeon madeon is a place that is in between Syria and Hejaz. So Hejaz is the current sort of Saudi Arabia and Syria, as we know it.
Is is a country but we're talking about Syria that also has parts of Philistine inside it. So this was the old Syria. So if you kind of think and it's also a place that wasn't very far from the Dead Sea, where the people of Lu la sala Salaam were destroyed. So somewhere on the borders of Hejaz, which is current sort of Saudi Arabia, and the old Syria, there is a place called madeon. And that is where Shu ivalice Rotherham was sent. Now he was sent to a people who are misguided for different reason. And it's so interesting that allows the will has picked every single prophet in the Quran, and every prophet his people have a different reason why they were led astray. So, when you look at
Adam Alessandra, his whole theme is about knowledge. And he believes was primarily led astray because of his knowledge and the his logical reasoning. And of course, he had jealousy with which we discussed, but knowledge was a prime thing because Allah azza wa jal taught other monosyllabic such
names that he believes was he was you know, left gobsmacked. Where did this creature come from that suddenly gets created knows all this stuff and knows more than him. So anyway, know Allah salam, his people, they were stubborn stubbornness was a great reason. And it is discussed in the Quran as we've as we've said, 950 years he preached amongst them.
rod and Simone, both of them are led astray because of them might empower the physical might and power because they were giants. And in today's world, you're going to find people with knowledge, which, which will lead them away from Allah. You'll find people who stubbornness lead them away from Allah will find people with might and power strength, lead them away from from Allah. And then when you come to other prophets that we've covered, like, for example, Ibrahim Alayhi, salatu salam, his people were and what he faced was a problem of emotions getting mixed in with the with the reasoning. So there are a number of people on the earth who have that problem that because their
forefathers were on a particular pathway, they just can't let go. They can't make amendments. You know, how could I come on this because my father's are on this other other way and then you have loot Alessandra, because of the desires because of the desires that between the thighs, the desire between the thighs. That's the reason why they were led astray. And they couldn't come to terms with what mutalisks
Salama saying to them. And now we have got a prophet alayhi salatu salam who sent to people because of their wealth, they were led astray from the pathway leading to Allah azza wa jal. So you can see, Lance chosen all these stories specifically because every single one tells us a different reason, amongst the people who went away from Allah. So Allah, Allah says in the Holy Quran, surah two aarav surah number seven Ayah number 85 he says what Allah Medina Maha whom Schreiber and to the to Medina to the city of Medina, I sent their brother shrine. Now, Allah has named him a brother before he was even sent. Brother before he was even sent. And I mentioned this one of the other, I think, in New
Zealand spot that Allah said, aha, home to new new Harrison was well, and there's a big lesson in here, which is that you've got to see the misguided people as people whom you have a pity for. You pity these people, you have mercy on these people, you've got to have some kind of way of seeing them as people that are lost people that should really be with you and your right path, if you can't even see them. Now this is brother humanities, it's not because of brother in Islam, but a brother in humanities and all people are our brothers. According to this ayah though they don't even accept tribalism. So they're going to reject tribal Islam. They're going to reject Nirmala sitharaman.
Allah says, I send them their brother.
I send them their brother. Why? Because even though they're going to reject him, he's still their brother in humanity, and he has that mercy in his heart towards them. So if you want further and to know further about this, go back to the to the video about a sermon I mentioned a lot this I'm not going to repeat that here. Now he said a similar thing, which many of the other prophets said and this was the foundation of the religion which was yako me all my people are Mandala worship a lot melaku Manila Coronavirus. There is no other deity besides besides Allah. Now, this was something which
Salim Ali Salaam said, which who Dalai Lama said and it's been mentioned before, so I'm not going to dwell into that. But what the foundation is, is that every single Prophet came into hate every single Prophet came with the oneness of oneness of Allah preaching the oneness of Allah, you will not find a messenger that has been sent without this. And every single messenger has also been sent with the with the good, be it law, they were they were sent by reminding people about the the signs of a law which means that Allah Allah gave many, many different gifts to us. So they told people about the gifts Allah gave, and we're going to look at these inshallah, one by one, when tribalism
is talking, and this is not just tribal, I said, I said, and this is every single messenger, they have three means to call people to the, to the oneness of Allah, or to the belief. One was to talk about the gifts Allah has given them. Second was the key,
be a formula to talk about the days of Allah, meaning that how Allah destroyed the nation's before. And if you don't believe, then the same will happen to you. But if you do believe, then good things will happen to you. And third was good, William will be my burden mode, they reminded them of whatever is going to come after death. If you do not find tauheed, or the remembrance of a person, through the gifts of Allah, through the through history, and how is destroyed nations and through what's coming after life after death, then there is no profit to that person can be a prophet. So anyone in history that claims to be or has claimed to be a prophet has to have these things running
in their power on the way they preach. So he starts out by saying goodbye to my property, I have come with a or a clear proof has come to you from your God. Now, this is one place in the Quran, where Allah hasn't discussed exactly what clear proof he brought to his people. What was that clear proof? Because this clearly shows that this must have been a merger or a miracle. The Miracle hasn't been discussed and they are clear that it hasn't been discussed. Now. The question is why? Why is it that the law says that beginner there is a clear evidence has been given. And then Allah doesn't even tell us what that clear evidence is. Just a few is before that. He talks about Salli ala
ceremony talks about the camel that actually came out of Iraq, and we've discussed that before in the series. But he gives us the actual beginner he tells us what is that clear proof that solid Allah Salam came to these people with and that is mentioned in a number 7374 and so on. You find it the sutra, sutra number seven, number seven, and number 85. Allah doesn't discuss that. Why not? Well, the lesson here that we learn is that we don't need to have
Every single proof to try and get people to believe in in Allah azza wa jal, and we don't need to know every single miracle of every single prophet. And it tells us that to handle it, you know, one thing you find is that you will pick up certain books about the profits are about history, and they will have details in there that are not found in the Quran and Sunnah. So for example, there are certain books, and I'm going to be straight with you. So there are certain books that I picked up myself. And then they've got narrations inside there about inlays, and how nice was born and how it came about and where he was born. And that a line or something and something else, you know, got
together and they, they were in Hellfire, and they sort of, you know, came out, you know, they may cheat and release came out from there or something. And that's the birth of beliefs. And you'll find things you know, strange stories about when it gets to, you know, use what I said about zulekha, who she was in is fascinating stories about her life and so on, you will find stories about the prophets who have been briefly mentioned the Quran, and who have nothing else mentioned. But people have, you know, gathered together all these stories. Now, my point is that most of this is either fabricated, or it's near fabricated or is very, very weak. What's the point of discussing such things? What's
the point of discussing such things, when people really just need to get to the bottom of what the truth is? That's the reason why Allah azza wa jal has mentioned this and I'm going to give you a another reason from the Quran. So what my whole point is that if Allah hasn't mentioned it, if the prophets Allah has mentioned, it, just don't dwell into it. And if you find certain books that dwell into such matters, just leave them because there's no point. How long are you going to get into those things? I mean, look at when the cow, the people have been inside, we're told to slaughter a cow. And they asked about its color, they asked about it, about about whether it's to tilt to the
land or not not done that whether it's actually watered the land or not done that, and they got themselves in a lot of trouble because of that, and it's a story inshallah will come in the future. But Allah made it clear that all they had to do just slaughter the cow. It was any cow in the beginning, but they made it difficult on themselves when they started to ask musallam what cow is it? Tell us a bit more about this. We're still not sure Moses and tell us more the more they ask the more difficult it became for them. And look at the people of the cave, people of the cave. When Allah azza wa jal mentioned them in the Holy Quran, he said, say una Salatu or Avraham calco, you'll
find certain people who start not questioning. Okay, so the boys went into the cave. I wonder how many boys they were.
And they said three boys. And the fourth were the fourth was the dog. And this is mentioned in Surah Kahf surah, number 18. And number 22, waipuna Hamsa. And some will start saying the five and the six was their dog regimen, believe it they just throwing things from the unseen meaning that they don't even have a clue. They're just making this up? Why a coluna Saba with me know whom kaboom and some will say it's seven, and the eighth was the dog. And then Allah says, Bull say this Oh, Muhammad, sallAllahu wasallam are og B, l and b are the team. Allah knows their actual figure, Maya, Allah Muhammad. Luckily, not many people know except for a few fella to McAfee him inland muranga Hara,
all you're going to end up doing is trying to make some conjecture, trying to make some kind of guess about how many they were on the surface level of the amount of guesses that you can make, why not test stuff dv min whom I had, Allah says don't even your profit, don't even go and ask anyone about that about them anymore about the numbers or the qualities and so on. Don't ask that. Why? Because the whole story was about to show life after death. And that's it, you've got the moral of the story. Don't dwell into things that you don't actually need. Now when Allah has said to the progress of the lions, and voila, testify stuffy min whom? Don't you ask anyone? What did he mean?
He meant? Don't you go and ask the Bani Israel, the Jewish people who are living amongst the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, who knew about the people of the cave, who had further information from the Torah, about the people of the cave, Allah said Don't even ask any one of them about any any further. Why? Because the point has been addressed. You've got the moral of the story, you know why it was said, move on. Don't get into these particular things about the story on this. People go to extremes about asking silly questions, silly questions, you know, hypothetical questions. There's no end to them.
I'll give you a quick story and you'll you'll understand
So this man, man, this is a real story. I'm not making this up. This guy he he asked a Mufti of the open
with the microphone. I think it was he asked him a question he said he said Mufti said, suppose I was in a battle.
And I'm fighting with the province of Alaska. Suppose suppose that basically is talking about the historical, you know, scenario here. First is you can't even go back in time. That's one problem. Yeah. So he says, suppose I was, I was fighting with the province of Lhasa, and the enemies took me.
And they put me on to the shield. So they had a massive shield, and they put me on the outside of the shield. And when the Muslims were actually attacking with the profit or loss of them onto this side, I was on that shield on the outside of the shield. And basically, they're using me as a human shield. So what would my case be? What should what should the, you know? What, what should happen here? Well, what happens if, if I die here and one of the Muslims kills me?
how you think about this hypothetical question is so silly. Right? First, you can't go back in time. Second is he puts himself in a really precarious situation. And third is super high drama, you know, you've got the Muslims and the prophet and Sahaba fighting him, right. And he wants to be with them. But he being caught and what does he do? So you know what the move to said?
He said, the answer is he said, If I was you, and I was there in front of the show, and I was the human shield, and the Muslims are against you, and you're being grown slowly towards the Muslims as a human shield. He said, You know what, if I was you, I'd ask the Prophet
that your Prophet says they brought you hear, you're asking, perhaps doesn't tell me how to Salalah what should happen to me? What if I die? You silly person? You know, like, the question is so silly, so dumb sometimes. And you think, what's the point of getting into this hypothetical question, right? So anyway, this idea here sort of are off. And number 85. Allah didn't say the modules and we don't need to go inside it any further. But some Allah Allah has said that the you know, the clear proof for the sign he has had was his speech, because Allah gave him a very eloquent way of communicating with his people. And they say that was one great, you know what miracle he had because
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of his miracles was that he had Jawaharlal Kelly, which means that he was very succinct, he was able to say a few words and have a lot of meaning in it. So we move on, he said to them, Shriver, Assam said to them, for alfen came when, when meezan, while at the hospital as a shell, he said, fulfill your measurements. Now there's two ways of giving people a measurement when you want to give them when you want to barter with them. One is a cane, cane means you have a utensil, or you have a measuring piece or a cup to measure. And with that, you take something, you measure it, and you give it to the other person. So for example, you know, sometimes,
and I know these days, most of it in the Western world is all to do with weight. So most of it has moved to weights. But if you go to the some of the developing countries, they've got certain measurements that they have with which they give you amount. So they have, you know, a small one, like the Coca Cola quarter, they have a bigger one, they call your half, they have a bigger one and not the quarter hole. And they've got these measurements. So nuts down this side on the, in the Western world, I think one of the only things you have that still continued like this is when they measure so nuts, you know, nuts, and sometimes sweets, they take a kind of measuring a large spoon
kind of thing. And they'll they'll put, they'll dig in, and they'll take a whole spoon or something out of it. And they'll measure it and give it so this is known as Cain. In Arabic, it's a measuring utensil that you use. The second one is me Zan, which is a weighing scale. So in the traditional sense, it was, you know, a piece of wood or something, and it's got some strings attached to it, and it holds to sort of waiting parts. One you put the item in and the other one, you put the weight, and then you try and balance it and make it sort of equal and the person holds it on top. Okay to balance it to today. You've got actual weighing scales, and the weighing scales Will you know, you
just put it on the weighing scale and it measures for you. Now just as you've got people who used to cheat in the old days, you've got cheat people who cheat in the in the in the new in the new world that we live in, and I'm going to get to that but what did these people used to do? One of the primary things that these people did is they they cheated people
In the in how they measured, and how many measurements they gave, and they cheated people in the actual weights and the scales that they that that they had. And there's a number of ways you can do it. Okay, those people who are in business, they know how to do it, if they're going to cheat, and a man who's going to cheat you, Allah Allah, he's gonna want to cheat you the moment you haven't looked at him, and it's a very crafty thing to do to cheat people. So how do they cheat you in the in the measurements? Well, what they do is, you know, the actual measurement itself, the actual measuring utensil, you make a new one that is slightly smaller, or you make one by same size, but
you know, in the bottom of it, and the bottom, you make, you make another layer at the bottom, that doesn't fill it up from the bottom upwards. So for example, if this was the original bottom, and that was the height of the utensil, what they'll do, they'll make it the same size. So it's the same size. But that thick bottom, they'll put that thick, sort of lay at the bottom. So so basically cheated you that much. And you can't even tell when they measure it, you think a looks the same size. But in the bottom, they put something there, they filled it up with some metal or something, and you can't see, and they're giving you instead of giving you one kg every time they giving you
point eight of a kg, and you don't even feel it. There's another way which is that you measure, you measure, you measure, you measure and you've given a whole back to the you got a whole bag ready for the person yet you put it down imagine, again, you measure again, measure again, Michigan cannot hold back ready for him, yes, he seen you remix, it puts you on the side that you know, besides him, you know behind the table. And imagine another one measure another one put in another bag, three bags, yep. And then when it's time he's taking your money from you. He's measured three, that's fine. But he's got another three bags already ready.
He's got another three bags identical. But each of the three bags have got less amounts.
So they will imagine there were three kg he measured in front of you put two inside, and he's got another three bags, the total of which will come to 2.5 kg. And he'll give you those three identical sort of outside and so on and so on. And a lot of people today who still do that, we will do those two ladders, even now the way to the way to cheat with the scales, many, right one of the ways is when they hold the scale, right is to take the little finger, put it on the side, and just just make it go up and down. Right. So basically, if you pull weight here, then it will measure it out. Right. But with the little finger on the side a little finger, they'll either drop it, or the lifted,
right? And they'll show you that it's it's weighing, balanced, but it's not really balanced. If they let go the little finger, it will show
that they give you less, give me less and and that's that's a you know, that's the easy sort of treatment. Another one to do is you don't actually weights yourself, you get them remade again, it says five kg on them, it's not five kg, something else and they know which one to put what time to make it more weighty and so on. And the modern day to do this is you know, the actual scale itself, they play around with it. They play around with the actual scale, you know, what you can do with the scale is that you can make it be, you know, let's say 10 grams more 20 grams more, you can make your half Okay, so it starts off with plus half a kg, it always starts off with plus 50 grams. Now you
can do that the machine allows you to do that, because sometimes what you're doing is you're weighing something, and you've got a bag. And the bag itself might be two grams, or five grams or whatever, okay, so the machine allows you to do that. So put a plus two grams, so that it caters for your bag, and whatever you're measuring. So you know, you're not sort of selling something and you're getting ripped off because of you for providing the bag. But what some owners do is that they mess around with it and they put a much higher amount to get the bag, they want to cheat you. So this guy
in St. Albans told me, you know, once you know, the True, true incident again, he said to me, I knew the Egyptian martial law, Nigerian brothers martial law, you know, they say things as it is martial law, you know, and Allah has given him a strength. So he says, your law, your chef, his guy, he taught me, Iran May. I said, How did he know what happened? He said, Well, I I went to his job. I went there. I told him, I said, Give me eight kg meat. So he weighed he give me eight kg on a scale voila, he I went home I weighed myself. It was six kg.
So I went back to him to his shop. I gave him meat. I said take it away. I don't want again but he's a chair.
I came to the mosquito. I came inside and I'm trying to pray and voila he share all my horseshoe gone. All my horseshoe gone. So what happened is that that man who sent me the meat is 10 is standing next to me and brain.
So he chewed me to kg and he's next to me brain while I go sudo I think you have a log on to make your Salah cabul unaccepted So anyway, the point is that you've got you've got crooks like that, today, people are robbing each other with with loads of ways, you know, with, it's not just with measurements of you know, this is measurements of actual weights, you got builders who are who are ripping people off. And they're buying stuff, you know, they show you receipts, the buy stuff, they take part and stuff to the for themselves, their stuff, they store it in their garage, and they give you, they give you the rest of it and you don't know the guy storing stuff in his own garage, and
you paid for it and he'll show you 18 bucks 1000 he's got the 19th 121 at home, which he which he got for himself and they start playing with each other. You know, I'm a victim of that as well. Yeah. Okay, so Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, I'm a victim of it as well. I went to, you know, the one of the builders, he comes to me, and I'm going to give you his name, he comes to me. And he says, If I take these, if I buy these other tiles of him, he's going to give these tiles in the kitchen small sort of tiles is that I'll give you them for free. Do you think wow, if I buy these floor tiles, I get these other kitchen, small tiles, you know, the ones you put the backsplash or
something? Or they call the the mosaic ones? Yes. I said, I'll give you them for free, Arthur, okay.
It's a good deal. So I took them off him and he plays the mosaic ones, and I bought these other ones off him, and then I find out that he's ripped somebody else up before me.
And is with somebody else, as well. And if somebody else as well as can be white. So I went and I visited the house. And I'm sitting with this woman, this woman tells me that, you know, this builder came and you know, he, he bought for me this many amount of tiles and, you know, I saw half missing one missing. So walk it in the kitchen. And yeah, Elahi, you know, the mosaic in her house. Yeah, the missing tiles is in my house Laila halala. So first thing is I said please forgive me She said, why I said, You're missing tiles are in my house, free of charge. free of charge. You know, the the and you know, she, she didn't make an issue out of it. She knew that this was a dodgy little bomb,
what I'm trying to say to you, there's so many ways of ripping people off cloth, you buy cloth, and they cut the cloth. When they cut it, they will cut it in a certain but they know they're very, they're very crafty. They know they want to get you under 10 meters of them, they'll give you 9.8 or something they know you're not gonna come back. There's banks that rob you with money, small amount of monies, you know, if every bank, Rob's every person, you know, just 10 P, there's 10 p every person 10 P, Na, that's millions of pounds for them. And they've got caught a few times number of court, they don't care because the fines they're going to get is never going to be equate to the
amount of money that they brought from all the people. You want to create it. There's so many ways that people are getting robbed today. And you know, there are so I've told you about the cloth ones, right? There's, there's ways you will go and you will buy an item. And they will give you that item knowing that the item itself is dodgy. And after a few days is going to you're gonna have problems with it. But they'll say to you, you buy it as you see it.
So you take it as you see, that's it. So it's a car or it's something else and you see it and you think that's all fine, but you later on realize that you've just been ripped off. And there are many ways that our schemes to ruin people. The thing is when you rub somebody or if you if you take away something from someone,
what you've just done is you have you have taken something away from someone and you thought you made an extra amount of money.
That's what every guy in the trade, who rip somebody else off things he's done. He's made that extra amount of money. What they do is they kill off the Baraka and the blessings in the halaal they had.
So let me explain this to you. If you had if you had
let's say you had a really nice sort of hole,
let's say five liter bottle or let's just call it two liter bottle because you're familiar with a two liter bottles of coke. Right? You got this two liter bottle of coke for free. As in that you robbed the guy got it? Yeah, so you think haha I've got this two liter bottle of Coke. If you take that
That two liter bottle of Coke. And you open the two liter bottle.
And then what you do is you take a one drop of urine,
one drop off you read, you know, that comes out of your Yeah, you put one drop in the two liter bottle,
would you drink it
from when you're drinking think you would. Now does the one drop of urine really make a difference, it doesn't make a difference, you would probably taste it. But you know that that one drop of urine is haram. And because of that one drop of urine, the whole two liter becomes haram and the good two liter bottle of coke that you could have had. Now you wouldn't drink it because you know, there's a one drop of urine, as the same thing that happens when a person is is trading. And that may you know they made some amount of heroin so that you know the guy is trying to send you three kg of meat.
And he sold you 2.8 or something for just that 0.2 kg that you robbed you
the money he took off you. So let's just say the money was 12 pounds, he took 12 pounds of you that 12 pounds out of that 11 pounds something is halaal and 60 P or 50 P or 40 or 30 P is Hara. That 30 p that you've taken from him extra, instead of taking 11 pounds 60 or something, or 11 pounds 74. Something that 30 P is that you've seen in the rest of the coke, you've taken that and less likely you've been in the in the bottle will be infectious to you. And it's not good for your body to take that or if it was blood in there something also pig's blood in there, you'd never take it, you'd never drink it. The same way, when you take the 12 pounds in full. And you put it into your counter,
you've just put in some heroin that's going to kill off the rest of the halaal that has come with it. So 11 pounds, something was helpful for you. You took 30 seconds, how about that 30 pounds is going to kill off a lot. And people don't understand this. And this is what tribalism actually said to them. He warned them and he gave them very good. I'm gonna tell you exactly what part of that is.
This is in Surah number 11, sort of hood, iron number 86. He said back to LA highroller. Come in Come to me. He said if you're believers, then the the remaining halaal that you've got in that without the Haram is very good for you. hive is much better for you than to take a little bit of harm in it. Because that little bit of haram kills everything off. And what it does is haram money when it comes in, it creates people it makes people want to have a dispute with one another. This is one thing established from the Quran. And I want to take this opportunity to say say that because of the heroin money people take they become corrupted. So look at look at Srebrenica, what he says is
for orphan Kane will be just and give fulfilling amounts of measurements. Don't cheat people. And when you balance things, don't cheat people. And then he said while at the hospital as a sham. Don't go and snatch things off. People don't rob people. And then he said well I will fill out the bottle is law Don't ruin the land after it's been rectified. No one is saying all of this. Because once you take harmony inside you, you start to become corrupted. That harmony you've just taken in is going to affect your behavior. It's going to affect your mind The first thing you'll affect is your in your mind. Because in return of that what happens a contract sign sorry, he's a Muslim is a black.is
going to be placed onto the heart. The more haram he takes the more haram he takes the blackboard Blackboard blacktop blacktop is placed in his heart, what happens is the mind starts to become corrupted. One of the first things that happens to a person who takes in her arm, and this is heroin in general. So it's not just alcohol is not just gambling. It's not just being corrupt by cheating people but any form of that. In another part of the Quran Allah azza wa jal has has said
the effects of this haram so this is the seventh years. So the Merida surah number five, and I am a 91. So I am number nine to Allah establishes about alcohol, gambling and so on. That reads to me now Emily shavon. It's a film from one of the actions of the shaytaan so what happens is when you trade and barter in haraam, shaytan finds it very easy to come and sit inside here in
inside your heart, inside your mind, oh, he gets in there it says man the guy's created me a DFS cushion. And you know so far yes so you just created him a nice sofa that he sits inside because the melodica the angels start to move away from you. That's number one. Secondly is Allah said in number three the shade on one street and gets inside there and you have a Nakula da, ba Ba, he will create enmity in your heart for one another. Now what happens is when one man takes hold on, and his his making business here, the people who make hot arm business slowly get to know other people who are doing haram business, yes or no? Yes, is very clear. The people who stay away from heroin business,
everyone knows who they are.
It's become such a world. If you're an honest businessman, people know that you're an honest businessman from far You know, what I just went to fall asleep. And the same thing happened when I went to Bangladesh, you know, these currencies, you know, the exchange, you exchange your, your, your your notes, for the currency of the land, there's a lot of cheating going on in there, they know that the price is different, but they'll just to teach you a bit, put it up.
Okay, if you want to make extra business, then you should tell people look, it's this much I want to make this much why is it that this one man in the whole of the town who's got to sort of, you know, hold dinars or something lower than everybody or you know, higher than everybody else? Why is that the case? Okay, I understand they want to make business Yeah. But you know, you don't make business to try to rip people off. There's an amount you should make. So anyway, in Philistine when I went there, I met an individual out of all the guys who are exchanging currency, there's one man who always has a lower price than everybody else, meaning that he gives you he gives you more
Bangladesh, in the heart of the of Silla town in the heart of the amber Hana where they've got loads of these traders for currency exchange. There's one man that people talk about him that that man whatever currency rate, he says, that's the real going rate, and you will get the best deal for him.
there any way the crooks know crooks, crooks, no crooks? Yeah. So but the thing is, what happens is if I'm cheating someone, and I cheat someone like you know, I cheat them. Point two kg. And the other cook in front of me, he cheats them point four kg.
Are they upset with him? I say you cook. He says in you calling a crook. You group.
One group constant another cook. Tuna. There have arguments within a man why women have been damaged for so you know, you're ripping off the man you should be talking about man. You know, cook yourself. But they have competition. And then the thing is, he feels bad. When when the other guy is dripping on fall. And he's getting point two, he thinks man.
He's making more than me. So what does he do? He tries to compete with him.
So he rips him off point five. Then the other guy starts complaining Hey, man, you called me a crook yesterday. Now look at you. It says well, everyone's doing it. Right. What happens in the market is people start all crooks. They have this thing between them that they want to do those kind of you know, they want to cheat people because between them knowing Now what happens is if one crew gets into trouble, look at the crookedness. If one cook gets into trouble,
then it's like the other crook was a hack.
You got done.
Now this guy is gonna hate him for that. Yes or no. This is how the enmity starts. This is what allows them Dell has mentioned this one type of enmity that says either wah wah, bah, bah, bah. So enmity starts between the crooks and then what they do is all these crooks The biggest thing they've got in mind? What Why did they Why did they rip somebody off in the beginning? The reason why they rip them off is because they want you to make more money, yes or no? Yes. So what they do at the end of the day is end of the day, they keep news on him. News on him. How much do you cook make and how much you cook make and how much that could make? So the news goes down. The list goes on by the end
of the day here, man he made man, jealousy comes yes or no jealousy comes. And the thing who, who made that much? I wonder what's he doing? What's he doing? The goal would be to see, I'll give you a typical example. In other Mongolia, tamales is observable moolah can say this year. So some of my fellow men, they came to this country. And I don't know why. But one man got into the alcohol business. They all said, You know what? There's no other business for us except for alcohol business. I don't know what's wrong with them. Yeah, one Pakistani guy comes over and he gets into cabbing. The rest of the Pakistani says, you know
I can't do anything except for taxi.
I don't know one indian guy comes over and says I want to open a solder shop the restaurant.
Now there's something in between those, you know, in those people I don't know, same as you simoleons as well. You know, one guy comes over and he opens a what's what's in your the caf cafe, right? They all open cafes, one open the grocery shop, they all open up. But I'll tell you one thing good at least about you guys, the ones who are coming and the ones who are opening the shops that holiday and the day the holidays. But unfortunately, some of the Mongolians have got into a harem way of making these alcohol shots and then Turkish people are the same. And now why they made this 24 seven of licenses. were selling alcohol all the you know, so I was done anyway, look, I want to
tell you about this. I know about the Mongolians. What they do is and is not just about Mongolia. The rest of them are doing the same thing. The crooks are the crooks All right. So what happens is that every week, the ones who work in restaurants every week, every restaurant owner seems to know how much another owner made.
And they talk about it. They said all got busy. You know why? Because the waiters who are working, they talk to each other, and they mix with each other. So one way to talk about how busy one Saturday night was, and the other one will talk and they'll gossip and move the information around. And that creates a lot of enmity between them a lot of jealousy between them. But I'll tell you one thing here.
And another thing is, you know, most of this family sort of restaurants here a lot of them are cheating the taxman as well. So you wouldn't want to cheat you wise will cheat everywhere. You know, I'm saying like Yeah, so the cheat the taxman how to cheat the taxman. They say to the taxman, oh, I've got this guy working for me. I'm giving him 45 pounds for the whole of the week. minimum wage, minimum wage, that's all the same here. And the back of it, they're giving them what does have money so basically, he's really getting 250 pounds a week. And on record, he's only getting 50 pounds. That's it. So what happens after a while is the taxman you know karma. The guy is the guy's British.
I'm saying like, he's the one who brought you over to this country. He ruined your country before he got you over anything, you're gonna start running rings around him. So when a what happens is that by the end of it, either the taxman gets them.
If the taxman doesn't get them, you know, the money that they made, and they've got this rivalry between each other, what happens that they start to really fall out with each other with the other crooks? Or one crook wants to get another crook by gassing me up? It happens they grassy You know, when there's jealousy gets too much. They want to grass him up, they'll they'll send the taxman over. The guy who phoned up said, Excuse me, no, say my name. No, no, my name Mo. But I'll tell you that man over there, no, no, no taxes, you make 2000 pounds a week, no, no taxes, right? So they'll grace each other. Or if it's not that, what happens is, these guys in Haram, they lose their lives.
They the enmity happens in the families, most of them, I want to know today, please, if you can do this for me, I'll be really, I'll be really happy. I'll change what I'm saying. I'll be over here that I'm talking about these guys. Right now. However,
what I'm trying to say to you if you can prove me wrong. Most people that I've observed, in fact, all of the ones I've observed, who are selling alcohol,
they don't have peace.
They don't have peace. You can you can have as much money as you want, but the certain thing you can't buy. One thing you can buy is peace. Nothing You can't buy is love. And nothing you can buy is trust. You can buy these things. They're not on for sale.
They're not for sale. And if a lamb moves away, he's Baraka and you've got shaytan sitting in there, he's never going to let you rest. So what happens is at home a lot of these Bengali guys syllables, the Lana look at the the curse. They don't see the family members for six days a week. They work they got to work from four o'clock. They come back at 1112 o'clock one o'clock in the morning. The main family time they don't get to spend with the kids. But they're given the money they give the money to the wife money the kids tuition being paid isn't that after 10 years of life and the kids have grown up father doesn't know son son doesn't know father.
Hey, Dad, thanks. Give me all the money one annual semi annual son.
The father tries to get the son to do something the sunlight
he's got no relationship, no love between the father and son. The wife in many cases doesn't know her husband.
He comes two o'clock she's hard dead tries to jump on at two o'clock.
She's like half dead. Make me something at two o'clock in the night. She has to get downstairs making some curry give
Some food at two o'clock in the night.
Then again she's gonna get up in the morning she's gonna make the school run again with the kids and all that right and then he's up what time is he up? By 1112 o'clock he gets up just about sees his wife for a couple of hours makes the shopping whatever four o'clock comes again four o'clock his kids come home he goes out
his kids come from school he goes out imagine 1015 years like that of your life finish ruined. And then if that doesn't get them, you know what really gets them Lie lie lie. They basically have to get this get all this money. Yeah. So Allah Subhan Allah Quran Allah v Gemma Malinois de The one who gets his money and accounts it again and again, country to
country. See, that's what goes into money. I don't wanna live people, how much money how much money how much money? So what they do with the money is that we can do with the money. You can't hide it in this country, can you? You can't hide it. You put in the bank, the taxman say you pay 50 pounds to your employees. Where's all this money come from? So the current ID, the guy can't even buy a house. If the guy wants to buy a house with cash. The bank is where Hey, where'd you get that money from? You know where it came from? So what they do is they send me overseas. They say if I can't build a big house here, I want to build it overseas. So
he sends it over sends it over every year he goes he sees his building building building the building and bigger and bigger five storeys all Mashallah.
All the latest gear inside the AC inside their sofas, in the TVs in their own suite, every single room, you look at it, and you think, Wow, the guy's got money. Yeah. But the problem is the car can live there. Because the guy, his heart wants to still come to this country and rip people off, make more money and look around. Yeah. And one day he finds out he gets a call from abroad. Hey, someone's entered your five storey building. What Who's that? Some guy says it is.
Time to go now he's got a gun, huh?
God, my friend and he goes all over. He wants to get that guy out. Now he has to put a case down using real stories. This is 10s and 10s of stories in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indians and 10s of denzer. So you want to go back and I want to get this guy out of his house. So he's going to make a case with the government. Now he makes the case he puts you know, a good 3 million takodana like, you know, might be about 3000 pounds or something. You put that down? Yeah, want to fight you. But now he's another mess. You know why? Because a crook works with another crook. See that? cookin His house is paid off the corpus and paid at the police is given the money. Now when the 3 million goes
to the court, the judge says you you give me 3 million okay? How are you? How would you give me says 4 million so good. Give me 4 million cases years.
So this guy now from this country has to give 6 million 7 million if the other guy can pull 8 million 9 million just says okay.
So he spends 10 million 12 million in the end he gets his home back just about for for another guy to walk in another day and take over and in the end of it if that doesn't get them there. The saddest thing about these people is satisfying about these people is
he did all of that. He doesn't eat his own wealth.
he dies and some others eat and all his life he went into haram ripping people off going towards selling heroin make trying to make more money he made all of it made all of it in the end. These own family bury him and while he's in the gray the things man all of that and some others come and take it and they distributed amongst themselves. Right so what is the lesson Oh, Danny said he said at our enmity Baba hatred, feel hungry ones may sit especially especially regarding alcohol and gambling. And then he said we are Sudoku man declare you are in Salah. Shaytan will stop you from remembering Allah and shaytan will stop you from praying. Most of these guys who go who have
restaurants who have alcoholic businesses, they don't pray yes or no. They don't pray. They don't do the vicar of Allah. They don't remember Allah. They're sucked into the world so much that the hearts become corrupted. So here Schreiber is Salam in Surah number seven, and number 85. He's saying because they cheated in the measurements and the balancing that leads to the other corruptions. So what did they do in this time?
They started a mafia.
What was this? You had? You know, the corruption starts in the marketplace. And when you can't, you can't compete with the corruption in the marketplace. What you do is you try and corrupt on a high level. If you want to corrupt on a high level, today's it today, the small corruption is going on there on the marketplaces. Whoever is doing it. I'm not saying everyone's doing it, but some people are doing it.
The biggest corruption is you become a middleman in between and you corrupt. So for example, you know, most of these grants are given out from the government. There's corruption going on, you know, you know, these roadworks, you see, roadworks going on for six months at a time. Yeah, contract is a corruption problem. We know it's going on, they know what's going on, is called a white envelope, or a brown envelope, or the new thing is a brown bag.
The white envelope under the table
1000 pounds, brown envelope, 3000 pound brown bag. 10,000 pounds. Yeah, give me the contract. Known as these MPs. Law, these MPs they've got people were related to them somehow, who get the contracts. And they get it because they're giving amounts under the table. And then what you see is me and you see six months of work 12 months of work going on, going on and on. contract is being paid, hardly any work being done, corruption is going on. But that's on a larger level. There's monopolies being created with certain amounts, people take them, and they take them wholesome and along, we release it when everyone needs it at a higher price. One of the things they did these corrupted people is in
tribalism, Stein, is that they started this mafia tactic of taking 10% of anyone who wants to bring their goods to Madison. So they were on a highway, that stretch from Asia all the way on the Silk Route, the old sort of Silk Road, the Asian sort of Route, all the way to Arabia, they were on that highway, as soon as you can imagine you're back to make big bucks, because there's a lot of trading going on here. So what they did is they were on the roadside, and they would wait there till pacifies came with a caravan of goods. And they would stop them and say, Listen, 10% give me 10%
of the business you're going to get, alright, then I'm gonna let you go in. If you don't,
you finished here, I'm gonna kill you, I'm gonna take your goods off you. So either they give him some money there and then or they make the trade and then put the eyes on them and they take 10% mafia work in the same way. They go to certain businesses, they say give us give us an amount to protect you.
We went for who who call you in their first base protection.
They come they say, I want to protect you. So I'm going to take an amount of you. And if you don't give it obviously, they're going to ruin your business. They'll either flame me they're either destroyed with the flame. They'll kill it off in one way or another. And you're obliged to give that now if you go to the police, they're dead mad.
Because they'll get you. They'll come after you and say find out because half the police get corrupt. Now what happens in these societies is that when corruption prevails, it goes from one to another to another. And it corrupts entire system. Judges become corrupted, police become corrupted, right? And it spreads and the police who don't take her in a bribes. They themselves are a sideline,
the sideline. Now there are good policemen out there in these countries who don't take bribes. There are good judges who don't take bribes. And I've met some of them they won't take bribes of you. But Laila and Allah those of you that take bribes like, soon you're in a country that you can't even you can't even live peacefully like in Bangladesh have just come now, back from Bangladesh. You've got a car, everything's okay with the car. Your mot is past everything, you've got your license, you've got the whole car, top to bottom, everything's working.
And the police stop you and start looking at your car with a torch like this or looking at it looking at it. When you read your papers. You give the papers they're looking at your papers and that
something's not right. Something's not all they want you to do is pull out 100 tackles to an attack and give it to him. If you give him 100 tacos off, go. If you don't give him 100 Taka, Taka he'll carry on looking at you, Kyle say it's not right. It's not right.
The wheel doesn't look right.
Geez, hello, the world is looking right now. It's not looking right. If you say look is looking right, man, I'm telling you, I just changed it right now. What's wrong with it? So Oh, so you get
you're showing your attitude to me. Ha ha ha ha See, he's gonna file in the in the papers. Forget your car. He's gonna now say you insulted the police officer.
So you've got to try and give give him something. Now there are only a few police out there that won't be that corrupted. won't do that with you. But a lot of them are corrupted. And forget him being corrupted. I said over there. I said, Listen, that guy's corrupt. What about his senior
senior allows me? What do you mean? He said a senior has told the police under him. He's told all his police force is that I don't care what you do. Yeah. By the end of the day.
Want this many 1000 Taka for myself?
He's given them a target for himself. He said, I want to say that before they even started. He said you could do what you want. But I want this many 1000 Taka for myself. I said karma. I said come on. What about the the MPs?
Can you go on no talk to them peace. And they laughed at me.
They said the MP of the district has told the main police headquarters. I don't care what you do, I want this many millions for myself. The guy's older than these old told him, I want this much. If I get this much, you you're safe. You're safe. And the guy below you he's safe. And he's telling to the guy below him, you're safe, as long as they give the cut to the guy above.
And that's how you have. So corruption is something that analysis is allowed to do without don't don't, you know, don't corrupt the the earth after it's been amended because the corruption wasn't there from beforehand, then come highroller come in control meaning that is better for you if you are believers, if you are believers. So now
Srinivasan was trying to get them to stop their corruption. And they were people who are corrupted because of their wealth. And there's going to be many different conversations that take place between them. There's threads and other things, you know, that take place in July in the next few sessions. We're going to discover these but with that said, I'll see you next week.
