So I have a lot
as well, during the webinar.
All praise is due to a loss of data who knows will be revealed, and know that we can feel, and even knows what the animals feel. We thank Him, we praise Him, and upon Him we have reliance. And it is him to only wait to return to for true guidance. And we asked him to send his peace. His blessing is mercy upon the best of human beings and profits,
upon when we prayed until the very end of our days, and we asked him for mercy, steadfastness, and to never leave us astray. And for him to save us. on judgment day, the IRS read and heard, being recited from source and fashion.
We're all kind of data describes
a legacy of a group of people that had never proceeded before, a legacy that was left behind. That was something that was inspirational motivational for many people to accept this out because of this, like, it was a legacy
that humanity hadn't seen before. That's the promise of the law, he was going to talk and Islam and party, and to this day, has an interest in the very human fabric of getting along and equal equality and the value that all humanity offers. And it is what brought about the great civilization of Islam
and the culture through many of the countries that we all came from and our parents came from. And that Islamic Society living this legacy was the Medina legacy. The met the legacy of selflessness.
The prophet SAW Allah while he was
in his final year before he would pass away.
He gave a speech that was attended by over 120,000 people, no to Muslim households, but to adapt the farewell speech, the final speech that would be heard by many of the companions from directly from the public to law, etc. And in the speech, he says, Yeah,
I know, but
what about why
would it all be in our Jimmy, what are the average Jimmy?
What are the
what is what
the process of law that says in this famous speech, the last words that would be heard by many people directly from the province of allottee, seven said, Oh, people
know that your Lord is one. And that's your father is one.
And there is no superiority of an error, over a non error or a non error over an error, and there is no superiority of a white over black or black, overweight, except with righteousness.
These words may seem to us the words that have been mimicked to many people who stood for their rights and values and civil rights. Whether it was Mahatma Gandhi, whether it was Martin Luther King in America and Malcolm X, or whether it was
many other people throughout the history of humanity who mimic the words, that there is no favours based on race based on class based on wealth, by the time and the advent of the process of the law.
Before he accepted before he became a prophet, Allah subhana wa tada brought into revive humanity with displace
the assets of the Prophet peace be upon him in Europe alone in the sixth century. Here in this country, in the United Kingdom,
there was a legacy and history of war between Anglo Saxon tribes
who constantly pillage one another,
simply based on class, or tribal lines, and based on beliefs, and based on other reasons, they would pillage one village after another, and this country was full of war for many, many years.
Between the French and the Spaniards, there was wars over which version of Christianity to follow, as the Catholics viewed arion Christian ism to be pagan.
Justinian the first and the Roman Empire
banned academic institutions based on Roman Catholicism. And he closed and shut down the Plato Academy, which had been running for hundreds of years,
which almost abolished Greek and Roman philosophy. And the irony would be that it was the Muslims who would revive Greek and Roman philosophy and the passage of time period, in a, in a place, an educational institution called dollar picking up.
And China, there was 250 years of war,
at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam being born, a queen by the name of queen who took power, and was killed anyone who had fallen in love and records.
And she was overrun, may have made to have her hair shaved and publicly executed.
And Yemen there was wars in India, they fought amongst one another between tribes and countries.
The entire world was overrun by the darkness of ignorance, and the darkness of racism, bigotry, preference, and the lack of equality.
And it was time, the time was right. For the advent of the Prophet peace be the final messenger that would revive humanity.
Just like humanity was revived.
By No, by Abraham, by Moses, and by Jesus, salaam and the rest of the prophets and messengers that will be sent to humanity to revive the values that will join all of them together.
It was right for the time of the Prophet peace be upon him. So a lot, who was sent with this message. He was sent to a society in the Arab world where they would bury their daughters, because they felt a dishonorable to have a female rather than male. He was sent to a society where fornication was a norm in the society, whether they were married or not married, he was sent to a society, which preferred race and color and lineage at a very extreme level. To the extent that anyone who is of a different color it came from a particular tribe was stuck in a certain class, regardless of his education.
He was sent to the society to revive the society.
And among the first things that he revived that when,
immediately when the message of Islam was talking to people was erasing these lines, social barriers, racial barriers, economical barriers, by the fact that somebody only says that they believe in worse worship one creator, and they believe in the final messenger, a black person became the brother of an Arab, and a non Arab became the brother of an heir.
And this was unheard of,
whether in Arabia or outside of Arabia,
this was something completely new to humanity,
that there was no preferences.
And the prime example, the meccan period, is the example of a slave from Ethiopia,
who would be seen being punished in front of society by his master, because they thought that there is no worth
to slaves at all. So they thought this was normal. And he was punishing him, putting him putting him on the rock, the hard desert rocks, and pressing his body, on the heat of this rock, while putting a rock that's even even heavier than his body on top of him and pressing it on him and telling him, leave your faith. Leave this belief that you have accepted and he would say, I haven't heard
you say there's only one more. There's only one more. There's only one Lord. There's only one way.
And as one of the most noble of men of that society walked by, and he saw the condition of the slave, he rent his master and said, How much will you sell me this slave?
And he said to him, I'm tired of it, take him for whatever you will give me. And he passed him the gold. And he did not ask even his servicemen to go pick up the slave. He picked him up with his own hand and carry him under his own shoulders, something unseen in that society before
and he carried him away. And those two people were beloved and they loved.
It absolutely shocked the society to see something like this and they would later the
companions and their friends would say that our master of will buckle freed our master, beloved.
Beloved, the loved one became not only a leader in that society, but a leader to the Council, the prophets of the Lord and became the result of stuff and the general in the army. And he married one of the most notable women of Makkah, an Arab woman, by the name of hand, they drove
from one of the most noble lineages, not only showing that you accept their legs legacy of brotherhood and selflessness, but even marrying from amongst one another, below the line who became a figure in Islamic history of what it means that our values erase these barriers of racism, bigotry, or any kind of preference other than righteousness. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, was never questioned about his character, question about what kind of trustworthiness he had his truthfulness, the process of the law, it was said that it was never a question about his lack of positivity or giving back to that society ever by the heirs. To the
extent that LBJ, which was the least the most, the biggest enemy of the Muslims would say, in the book, what I can magically said, We don't deny or reject what you, we don't deny or reject your character, we deny and reject what you came with. And I'm also proud of the time I had to reveal
that they do deny your character, rather, they deny the science of God, and they reject them. The prophet SAW the law instead of as a human being was never a question about his character, or his motives, or the fact that he was a benefit in society, to the extent that Allah subhanaw taala did not grant the Prophet, someone sending the message of Islam, until he was known as a person in a society that was trustworthy. And truthfully 40 years the process I spent in that society, giving back to that society, and be known in that society for the benefit that he provided to the extent that they trusted, and then the message of Islam was given to the problem.
And this legacy carried on throughout the meccan period,
that they did not reject Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because of who he was, rather, because of the message was destroying their society. He was breaking down all of the barriers that supported their oppression, and their injustice. The process of the law instead, and his Islam, according to them, was destroying families, because their children were becoming brothers with slaves.
And they rejected that.
The problem is a lot of them carry this on to Medina. To the extent that when he was coming to Medina,
the Jews all came out, the Muslims all came out, the Arabs all came out, they wanted to see what this man looked like. And one of them was able to pull up and set up who was a Jew at that time. And he said, I wanted to go see what this man looks like as changed Arabia that shook the entire region. What does he look like?
So he went, he said,
he said, When I saw his face, I recognize that just by looking at him, his face was not the face of a lie.
And I'm delighted to sit down, said the very first day that the Prophet peace be upon him said when he had an audience of both Muslims and non Muslims, Jews and Arabs, the very first thing he said to that society, he said,
as she said,
the first thing he said in Medina, he said, Oh, people spent the greeting of peace. Walk around and feed one another. Take care of the needs of one another. will settle upon and join between the ties of kinship
will suddenly be laid when that's a pain in the night from devotion while people are sleeping or people are sleeping, touch food or agenda.
be set up, you will enter Paradise with security. And he said
none of you truly believe all Muslims,
until the love for your brother which you love for yourself.
This was the very first message the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told that society and he brought about a legacy that none had seen before in practice. What he did after that is anyone who migrated
to Medina from outside rather rather, whether it be from Mecca or from anywhere else from Rome or Persia, he would join between those immigrants with one citizen and video. I didn't stay in his home. One example of this was the example of Saturday in the lobby here. I don't know how many
of the founders of the same one who Sister Mary,
he came to his house. And when he came, he said, Oh,
my property is your property. My clothes are your clothes. My money is your money. And I have two wives. Pick whichever you like, and I will divorce.
That was absolutely mind blowing when I heard that. It's absolutely
except that these people had true faith and believe in the legacy of selflessness, absolute selflessness, and one of the advantages.
He said, No, he's a male, bless you. May God bless you in your belongings in your property. And in your family, show me the marketplace. He was a businessman.
And he went and he traded and became one of the wealthiest in the society. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was quoted as saying, in a comic went into lions, coffee, let's hope there will be a journey.
And meaning that the most honorable of you in front of God is the one who was most righteousness, and God consciousness. And there is no preference over a believer except in righteousness in the sight of God. The one who even narrated this Howdy, that in a column in the pocket, was a woman, by the name of a man who was black.
And she became one of the students of the Prophet Mohammed salah and became one of those who narrated how to, and he loved her and the family that she had raised, to the extent that her son will sound like they became one of the closest companions of the Prophet. And he too, was
in the process of a lot instead of a hold him and he would pray for him and make a job for him. And he literally watched this man grow up in Medina, what legacy
that the prophet SAW Allah instead and behind after those final words that he gave to over 120,000 people.
And to just give you a comparison of what this means, because now we're living in times, where 5 million people are going to have to build a bridge, the
population of Medina in the fifth year, he's about four years before this final pilgrimage was no more than eight to 9000 people.
So you're talking about molt 100,000 plus more than that. It's an absolutely crazy, big, large number that came up to this final pilgrimage and had become believers. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed on this legacy to the Muslim oma to the extent that every nation, every group of people,
has something to give back to the Muslim tradition and civilization has given Ziad who had opened angles and Spain was like, and the rich scholarship of Persia, Uzbekistan,
India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, brought about the most rich legacy of heavy scholarship that this woman knows Mohali Muhammad
Ali is from where?
Wherever he from
where was like seventh grade? So where's Muslim? We had Joshua
he's from that area. Mm hmm. Where's he from?
only one guy that
he's from tournament which is Southern Iran, or close of us and as well?
he nada was not all the greatest scholars of Arabic language among the greatest dollar if they could say a CBA was what? What was this?
cebo A was Persian. His name he's the one who eats out
sale which means Apple you have studied personally.
So see the way it was version was the others were Persian. The legacy of scholarship in medicine was brought to you by Arabs and Persians and from the subcontinent as well as the Maliki scholars and leaders of Africa, who spread the rich legacy of Islam such as a man dead folio,
such as the legacy of the universities of a week in Tunisia,
and Morocco, and the Berbers in Algeria, and the Libyans
and the rich legacy that because of how Muslims dealt with one another, and dealt in business and dealt with others, is what spread that legacy in these parts, to the extent that Yemeni merchants spread all the way to Indonesia and Malaysia, and spread the Shafi mentor amongst those who accepted Islam because of their business practice.
Everyone played a role in spreading this legacy. And Muslim civilization coordinated with the architects,
the Ottoman Empire, the Ottoman mudita, which spread the legacy as we know it for hundreds of years. And I want to share with you what this legacy did, particularly at a time, which the legacy of Muslims under question
in a time where the Prophet Mohammed salado legacy is under question with the values that he taught in the religion that he brought. In February 24 1525.
The King of France, Francis The first was defeated in a great battle against Spain against Spain, and a battle called the Battle of Libya.
by Charles Illinois or known as Charles the fifth, massive casualties occurred amongst the French incredible loss occurred in terms of land loss, he himself King Francis was taken captive, and he was forced to sign a humiliating tree. that to this day, was known as the Treaty of Madrid. To the extent that they came his mother, Louise this avoid, had to send a letter begging the Ottoman Muslim, for help.
And as his envoy traveled, they caught him and he was killed. And King Francis the first himself have to send this letter with another envoy. This envoy was received by so called a man the first are known as suit on the salamander magnificent and listen to what he says. He says, we
always are in the name of law, in the name of God, the Most Merciful the store of mercy, I, the heart and soul part of the mixture of the Mediterranean and black seas. And Talia koloman could discern land of Persia, Damascus, Aleppo, Egypt, Mecca and Medina, Jerusalem, and all of the lands of Arabia, Yemen, and many other countries, some of the values he son of so called setting the shadow of God on earth. So far today, man Han, and you the governor of France, he doesn't call him the king says the governor of France, France is the first have sent to my court, a refuge and a plea of sovereignty. A letter by your faithful agent Frank de Pon. And you have furthermore trusted him
with verbal communications that I have received. You have informed me that the enemy has overrun your country, and that you are present in prison and a captain. And you have here asked me and my supers for deliveries, I tell you take courage, and don't be dismayed. Our glorious predecessors and our illustrious ancestors, may God light up their tombs have never ceased to make war to repel oppression and conquer injustice. we ourselves have followed in their footsteps, and have at all times conquered provinces and citadel of great strength and difficult to approach. Night and day are more subtle, in order that we may be in the service of God until the end of the letter sign so fun.
So the amount of the first to Francis the first of France, February 15 2016.
We tell the French and this times Do not forget the legacy of history.
In this letter,
we tell the brace we tell the Europeans and we tell Muslims do not forget this legacy, this legacy of absolute selflessness, and be in the service of humanity.
This legacy was something that was lived not only by the profit centers, and not only transferred to people that were so selfless, as you have heard from the examples of media, but it was transferred to the Muslim civilizations in themselves. Now the question is, this was a very nice speech, right? We talked about history made us all feel nice about ourselves. The question is whether this is yours. When is your legacy and my legacy in London, Britain,
in America, in the lens that we live in? Where is your legacy of the prophets of Allah?
decided to deport the smallest minority group,
in terms of Christians, the Mormons from America know what happened. universities will be shut down, hospitals will be shut down. Doctors, politicians in Congress, they no longer work.
Now ask you the question, what would happen if they did that to Muslims here?
Which institutions would shut down? Which organizations and charities would shut down?
Besides many good places of food to eat?
Right? What would shock? What benefit are Muslims bringing to society? What is the legacy that we're living in action by giving back to the society? Or are we Muslims that live off the land?
Or are we Muslims that still believe are going somewhere called back home?
This is your home brothers and sisters.
You're every citizen in this country with rights.
It is time that we live the legacy of the prophets online seller, by giving back to the society that we live in. This is the legacy of the prophets. There is no other legacy that is more respected than a legacy of giving back to your neighbor.
That is why the prophets on the law audience of them said,
take care of the rights of your neighbor, take care of the rights of your rent of your neighbor, take care of the rights of your neighbor, because the angel Gabriel has come to me. And it is almost as if he gave your neighbors a portion of your inheritance. How many of our neighbors know about our faith and knowing us as being trustworthy? As someone who does not curse? as somebody who's upright, someone that they can go to for years? How many of the peers that we study, you know,
how many of them, trust us, how many of them will come to us seeking guidance.
When we live that legacy? In our practice, that is the best defense of the Prophet Mohammed civil law. Right? I've been asked I've been on tour throughout the UK. And one of the main first questions that I get asked is what can we do in order to defend the process. So a lot of audience I live in these times of satirical cartoons, and what have you.
And the best way you can defend the process of all this
is number one, live by his example, live by his practice, live, how he would visit one of his Jewish neighbors in order to comfort him at death. The prophet SAW the law
visiting his Jewish neighbor in order to comfort him at the time of death.
And he was known to be the one who would give from the society and give money in order for people to understand that Islam is a religion, of guiding people and reviving humanity to be in their service. That's first second, for us, a citizen of this country
to stand for the rights that we have. Just like those before us in 1935, there used to be satirical cartoons, and blasphemy and bigotry and racism against
black people and Jews.
And what brought rise to the current situation where in France and even in this country, it is against the law for you to have anti semitic beliefs.
And especially in universities such as this, well, you could be banned for having some of these moves.
What stops us to petition the country that we live in as citizens
of this country that have rights against some of these in justices, just as what's occurring currently in America, with regards to what we call maybe the new civil rights movement.
And to many people surprise that it is not a post racial American civil rights has to be revived. Because there is a privilege of a certain class of people over others and minorities. And I have lived that where I know my friends, African Americans, who are taught by their mother, make sure you don't run outside, as people think that you may have stolen something.
Don't walk with your hands, in your sweatshirt, because people may have thought that you stole something from the store.
My friends, personal friends have been taught that something I've never heard before my life.
My parents never taught me make sure son to not have a beard while you play high school basketball, because they think you're a terrorist. I've never heard that before.
When my personal friends were African Americans face this, where are the Muslim voices in civil rights, just like the great Muslim voices exists in the civil rights movement in the beginning, in America, where our voices were standing for justice, and not just our issues, but issues of bringing just bringing justice to those who are facing injustice and oppression over others? Are we just people that live off the land and care only about ourselves?
The process of the law is assigned a PAC before he was a prophet called Henson.
Which was a path that said anyone in the Mexican society that had injustice against him by error,
that they would come together
and give back his rights.
And he said that if this pack was signed, today, we need to Medina I would be the first one to sign it again. Where are we as Muslims? Where are we in our empathy? When I get a hold? And I mentioned the civil rights movement in Ferguson and what's going on in America, somebody will come up to me and say, Brother, what about Palestine? You get mentioned?
If you give a talk about Egypt, people ask you what about tissue. If you didn't give a talk about standing up for the orphans, of people that need to be fed, and Jordan from the Syrian refugee brothers, you forgot Central Africa and Burma, we as a Muslim society, and people think that there's a lack of empathy for humanity, that you must care about only Muslims or a group of Muslims. And if you only mentioned one, that means you have forgotten everyone else.
Because we have grown up with Islam that's not organic. And Islam which is rulebook Islam, do this, don't do this. And we have forgotten the legacy. And the fact that Islam is alive
and takes into consideration the each case based scenario and problems of that particular society. And with that, this is what the prophets on align center left back in the people of Medina, the people of Medina
and one of the final events in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw their prophet giving away massive amounts of wealth to those outside of the city.
And the province of Ontario sudden brought all of the people of Medina together and he said, Yeah, Marcia.
Oh helpers, this is the name of the people of Medina. I'm not alone.
Giroux, Wishart, he went very, very hard, wanting to zero, Milan.
And he said, Oh people of Medina. Are you not happy that these people will go home with some wealth of this dunya material wealth.
And you will go back with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to your homes, and all of them.
And they said, well, Lena,
we are happy with the prophets of Allah
as a fair share of us, and the problem was I said, we'll go We'll go back to that society. And he was buried in Medina. And they were happy. None of them saw a position of leadership after that. If you look at the history of Islam after the time of the Prophet, you will see the name of a worker or a lot. Man
has per se has said, holidays.
Who are all these people? They're all people from
Old people that came from outside. So hey, ballroom is so bad in fantasy, you will never find a person from Medina in these positions of leadership. Why? Because of this legacy of absolute selflessness, they serve the religion of a lot without even senior leadership. This is to what extent the surgeon destroyed with us as the last prototype, that He grants us this legacy absolute services
along with a candidate that can handle a man, that could have been and that was to me like 100,
although we thank you for the snap, thank you for the map. We thank you for the fact that it follows on the problems of human civil law, it was set up in a long line and legacy of prophets and messengers, we thank you for the faith that we have in the values that we hold. We asked you by our Islam, we asked you why are none, we asked you our love to the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, to allow us to live in the company of the righteous in the here in the heavens, we asked you a lot forgive us to have mercy on us. We asked you a lot to make us of those, who when we hear the legacy of the Prophet peace be upon him selflessness, we live in our actions on the basis of those who are
the best of humanity in service to others, we ask you all like to make us guidance for others, and ask you a lot to help us remove oppression, to help us remove injustice. To be those have to be those who stand again, to be though, to be those who stand for justice, even if it's against our own selves, or family or people or the maintenance of those who stand upright for humanity and the revival of humanity with the beliefs and values that you have given us. All Americans of those who are the best practices of Islam, and the best followers of the prophets and messengers, and gratis forgiveness. All are You're the only one who hears the cries of those who have been oppressed. All
you're the only one who is enough for them. You're the only one who can give them victory, and to remove the oppression against them all on your own one can hear the cries of mothers, the loss of fathers is only one who knows the sadness of children is the only one of one you're the only one who knows the oppression that's facing people who don't have any help, or any aid except yours. All we ask you to lift the oppression, lifting injustice and racism and to remove from us the hearts and to remove from us. The veils and excuses that surround our hearts and the injustice is that we have and racism and bigotry that we hold on make us of those who best follow the message the profit and loss
