00:05:09--> 00:05:12

A Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:05:16--> 00:05:42

All praise you to Allah subhanho wa Taala. As the Creator of all things, and the sender of all prophets and messengers, and the revealer of all truth, we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala on all the bounties that he has bestowed upon us, we thank him, We ask Allah to forgive the sin that we have committed, whether it's a minor or a major one

00:05:43--> 00:05:59

where there is an open or secret sins, and we ask Allah to forgive the sin of those who are present today and those who are absent among us, the living among us and those who have passed away among us.

00:06:01--> 00:06:07

We ask Allah to forgive the scene, the young and the old among us, the male and the females.

00:06:09--> 00:06:21

And we asked the last hand hawala to guide us and to give us peace in this world and is in the hereafter amin to my beloved brother,

00:06:22--> 00:06:25

our chairperson, brother, Isa from California.

00:06:26--> 00:06:31

And through all the organizing committee of peace vision of Islam,

00:06:32--> 00:06:39

on the behalf of our organization, and Kadhim, stand for serving mankind back in Malaysia,

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

we would like to thank all of you.

00:06:44--> 00:07:14

And also we like to thank the Organising Committee for allowing us to come and meet the brother and sister in Chennai, and to share with you the important topic about Islam. There is peace and prosperity and Islam is a goal of humanity. Now, before I proceed, I would like to remind myself and all the fellow brothers and sisters who are with us, Bina Muslim, we should be proud

00:07:15--> 00:08:19

to exercise the Islamic values, the Islamic ethics, the Islamic way of greeting. Now, this lecture have been opened by brother Isa by offering the Islamic greeting of peace as salaam alaikum. But the response from the brother and sister is not that good. Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the Quran, what is a fee to get in for high up Salah minha de la cara is the meaning of the sake of Allah is if any Muslim offer you the Islamic greeting. You as fellow Muslim, male and female should respond with a better greeting. How do you respond? So the Prophet show us and guide us, he said, If anyone come and give you the offering of Assalamualaikum then you should say what aleikum wa salam wa

00:08:19--> 00:09:15

rahmatullah that means your response should be longer than a one will offer you. If the second person comes and give you the Salam. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah ers one should be walakum wa salam, wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. If the third person come and give you Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. The complete salam, then you should respond with a louder voice by saying why aleikum wa salam wa Rahmatullahi wa barakato example insha Allah I'm going to offer you the second Salam so that those who are present today is able to exercise the Sunnah of the prophet to practice what the prophet have taught us because Islam is not just knowledge, but knowledge we've

00:09:15--> 00:09:16


00:09:17--> 00:09:27

So inshallah brothers and sister I'm going to offer you the greeting of peace from a loss Hanwha Tada. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato

00:09:31--> 00:09:32


00:09:33--> 00:09:49

Now why I want you to respond to this call and prayer and Salaam of peace, because the topic that we are discussing this morning about peace and prosperity, if anybody

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

wants to be successful, as a human, as a father, as a husband, as a businessman,

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

As a leader, he must have peace within himself.

00:10:06--> 00:10:14

Without peace, we cannot progress. Without peace is so difficult for any country to develop

00:10:16--> 00:10:20

only to peace, then you can start to progress.

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

Better and better inshallah.

00:10:25--> 00:10:37

Now, when you talk about Islam, we are talking about the true peace. The true peace that come from Almighty Allah.

00:10:39--> 00:10:49

Not from us is from Allah because peace belongs to Allah. It doesn't belong to you doesn't belong to me, it belongs to Allah, the creator,

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

the one who creates every one of us,

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

because he say, was Salam.

00:10:58--> 00:11:14

Allahumma salam, WA Ming, salam, the prophet remain, say that, Oh Allah, you are peace, and peace belong to you, and bees come from you.

00:11:16--> 00:11:22

Now, and that is why all the profit was sent, to bring peace.

00:11:23--> 00:11:31

Not to create war, not to kill, to destroy, but to save, and

00:11:32--> 00:11:32

to develop,

00:11:34--> 00:11:40

not to do anything bad, but to invite every one of us to become a better person.

00:11:42--> 00:11:55

The word Islam have three, great meaning. Number one, mean total submission to Allah Almighty, Allah, the creator.

00:11:56--> 00:12:05

Everybody who wants to have peace with himself, he must have a good relationship with a law office.

00:12:06--> 00:12:10

Without that kind of relationship, you cannot have peace.

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

You can try to look for peace. But the peace that you look for will not be permanent.

00:12:19--> 00:12:32

When you submit to Allah, physically, mentally and spiritually, then you will achieve peace. That's why Islam means total submission you must submit to the Almighty,

00:12:33--> 00:12:39

who is peace and the peace belong to Him, and peace come from him.

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

And that's why Islam So stand for

00:12:46--> 00:12:53

peace. Number one, Islam in total submission. Number two, Islam Islam in peace, Salam.

00:12:55--> 00:13:19

There is why in the world today, the only nation the only people who greet human with the greetings of peace is a Muslim. Everywhere you go, whether he is an Arab or non Arab, whether he is a white or colored, when they are Muslim, they will greet everyone with the greeting of a Salam Wa Alaikum Peace be upon you.

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

This greeting

00:13:22--> 00:13:37

do not come from the bodies, neither the Hindus neither the Christian only the Muslim use these greeting of peace. Because we are the peacemaker.

00:13:40--> 00:13:48

People may say the Muslims are terrorists, but there's nothing to do with what they say. In reality, only Muslim.

00:13:49--> 00:13:59

bring peace to everybody because only Muslim will greet people with the greeting of peace As salam o Allah. Islam also means security.

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

If you follow the teachings of Islam, you submit to by law,

00:14:06--> 00:14:21

you submit to the Divine Law of a law, not men met law, but the Divine Law. then allow promise us security in this life here now. And here after

00:14:22--> 00:14:46

not only you are safe here, not only you have peace here, you have peace here and peace here after not only you become successful here, but you also become successful in the here after. This is what Islam promises. That's why we say peace and prosperity.

00:14:47--> 00:14:55

You want to be successful. You want to progress. You got to have peace within yourself.

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

And that's why the Muslim was invited by

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

Last Hannah hautala and by His Messenger peace be upon him

00:15:07--> 00:15:19

to have faith in a law office because Allah Dori but Allah He Mozilla to a nama tokico in the Hubli min Allah wa Hubli mananas.

00:15:21--> 00:15:28

Now what Allah is telling us, none of us can be successful.

00:15:30--> 00:15:35

None of us can call ourselves that we are great people

00:15:37--> 00:15:43

until you have a good relationship with Allah, the Almighty God

00:15:44--> 00:15:51

who has created you for a purpose, to know Him, to love Him and to serve Him.

00:15:54--> 00:16:02

If you don't do that, that means you have no peace, where you have no peace, you cannot bring peace to others.

00:16:03--> 00:16:15

You have no peace with your family. You have no peace with your neighbor. You have no peace with your country man. You have no peace to the environment. You become very destructive.

00:16:16--> 00:16:31

Why? Because by nature, Allah give us the knifes when He created us, He gives us the desire and majority of our desire is inclined to destruction

00:16:32--> 00:16:48

is not reconstructive is more on destructive desire. We call Nussle Amar abyss, so the destructive desire, thinking of yourself, you don't think of others.

00:16:49--> 00:17:05

But Islam come and teach you that you must have a good relationship with the Creator. Matt, how important for you to know who is your parent? There is how important you should know who created you.

00:17:08--> 00:17:24

When you have peace, river law, you are sure to have peace with yourself. And then you can bring peace to fellow mankind. That's why Allah say dery but Allah He Mozilla to IE nama tokico.

00:17:26--> 00:17:34

Meaning Allah is telling us that the curse of Allah, Allah will humiliate us.

00:17:35--> 00:17:43

We will not be honor until we have a good relationship with Allah. And then we've failed many times.

00:17:45--> 00:17:59

After you have a good religion, we have Allah you must have a good relationship between Pella mankind start with your own family. Nowadays why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

remind us by saying,

00:18:04--> 00:18:07

law Kunal Jana

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

Hata, to me, no.

00:18:11--> 00:18:29

The Prophet is reminding us, none of us whether you are white, or color rich or poor, Arab and non Arabs, none of us can enter the paradise that belong to Allah. And Bill he believes in him

00:18:31--> 00:18:39

until he believes in Allah, and then the Prophet continue, Allah to me know that

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

none of you can be a true believer.

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

None of you can be a true believer until he loves each other.

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

He have peace with each other. This is very important to understand the saying of our profits,

00:18:59--> 00:19:25

the profit for all mankind, all nations and tribes. The early profit was sent by Allah for a particular tribe and nation. But Prophet Muhammad, Allah Azza wa sadhana Illa Allah min. O Mohammed, we do not send you except to bring peace, mercy, blessing Rama

00:19:27--> 00:19:35

to the universe, to everybody. That's why Mohammed is not a prophet that bring peace only to the Arabs

00:19:37--> 00:19:43

but to Arabs, non Arabs, to Indian, Chinese, Malay

00:19:44--> 00:19:49

to every one of us, because that is the message of peace.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

The Prophet said none of us can enter Paradise because Paradise is a world of peace.

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

There is no hatred. There's no fighting, no jealousy, no anger, in Paradise, Paradise is a place of peace.

00:20:13--> 00:20:19

And if anyone wants to go to Paradise, he must find peace here first.

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

And please come from a man, you must have a manifest.

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

You must have faith in a loss.

00:20:30--> 00:20:48

And Eman is the only thing that Allah and the Prophet said, that will qualify you to achieve peace in this world. And peace in the Hereafter, is important for us to understand. And the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam continue by saying,

00:20:49--> 00:20:57

Allah, Allah at the lucam, Allah Shea in is a foul to the hub,

00:20:58--> 00:21:13

the prophet as his people, do you like me to teach you to show you something, that when you do it, you will create love, you will develop love, there will be peace among you.

00:21:16--> 00:21:27

When you have peace you can keep on progressing brothers and sisters. If there's a lot of demonstration, unrest in India, do you think the government have time to develop this country, they have no time.

00:21:29--> 00:21:50

A lot of time was spent in taking care of the security of the nation. But when there's a lot of peace, or your time can be focused in how to develop this country to make it a better place for all of us to leave on a cleaner place, a more hygienic environment.

00:21:51--> 00:21:59

Only worse, you will progress when you have peace. So the Prophet said, Do you like me to show you something?

00:22:01--> 00:22:02

When you do it,

00:22:03--> 00:22:08

you will develop love and peace among you.

00:22:10--> 00:22:13

the companions of the Prophet is not like you and like me.

00:22:14--> 00:22:25

They always want to hear something from Prophet Muhammad. Every time when they are free. They will come to Prague, they'll go to the Prophet as Yara Salah, tell us, what should we do?

00:22:28--> 00:22:56

How can we become a better Muslim? How can we be beneficial to ourselves and to other? This is what the Companion of the Prophet always asked. They are not talking about themselves. They don't come to the Prophet and the Prophet. Teach me how to become a rich man. Teach me how to become a politician now. They just want all Prophet Muhammad. How can we do something that Allah is happy with us?

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

This is what they want. They want a loss.

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

Pleasure, they want a loss, a rainbow.

00:23:06--> 00:23:17

They want a loss, love. The important thing is a lost love. So the Prophet said, If you do this, you will bring peace.

00:23:19--> 00:23:38

And you will have love among you. When you love each other. There's no more hatred. There's no more jealousy, no more emptiness and there's no more war. They will have peace, companionship, tissues or profit. So the profit instead of salam, Salam Alaikum

00:23:39--> 00:23:49

this Hadees is from Sahih Muslim, the prophet said, if you want to have peace, you must promote peace wherever you go.

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

So Salam benaco.

00:23:55--> 00:24:42

Wherever you move when you see anybody, Salam aleykum Selam Aleykum Selam Aleykum. Because when you do that is like you are praying for everybody made a peace of Allah be upon you, my brother, be the peace of Allah be upon you, oh my sister. That means there's nothing, nothing that you dislike about the person anymore. You only think of good. Whenever you say everything is good, nothing is negative, everything is positive. Even he is not good. But you want him to be good. That's why I say Peace be upon you. You don't get a curse you be the curse of Allah be upon you know you don't do that. You always say Peace be upon you, my son, peace be upon you, my daughter, peace be upon you,

00:24:42--> 00:24:53

my wife, peace be upon you, my husband, peace be upon you my father, my mother, my neighbor, my friend. My business man. When you always promote peace

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

insha Allah fellow brother and sister Allah is going to bless you and may Allah bless you.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Wherever you go, you make friends.

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

Peacemaker wherever they go, they have friend, troublemaker, the one welcome them.

00:25:12--> 00:25:22

If you have left among your fellow brother and sister, you have peace. I gave you one simple example. You have been here for many days, maybe

00:25:23--> 00:25:27

you have been sitting in front of the speaker.

00:25:28--> 00:25:34

Have you ever get to know each other, the one beside you left and right brothers? Why?

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

Why don't you try

00:25:37--> 00:25:44

to see the word of peace among you. Now you look to your right, look to your right rather, say something to him.

00:25:46--> 00:26:03

Say something that instead say Peace be upon you. Say pbmi you and look to the left, say peace be able to do that brothers? How can you see it so close and you don't know each other? You don't care to know about each other. There's not good.

00:26:04--> 00:26:16

That means there's no peace in you. You just think to yourself, I don't care. I'm here. I represent myself. I don't represent anybody know, wherever you go. You are representing everybody.

00:26:18--> 00:26:39

The message of peace that you learn today, when you go out you're going to share with your friend. Now let's talk about peace. That's why you say Muslim country. They don't send a weapon to any other country because they believe we only send the message of peace. We don't send weapons weapon will kill people.

00:26:42--> 00:27:03

But they are people. They are nation talking about peace but they are supplying weapons. And then they said let us have peace. No, you cannot have peace. When you have all this destructive weapon going around. You only have peace. When you always travel with the word of peace.

00:27:05--> 00:27:11

There is the most important weapon, the weapon that can save life

00:27:13--> 00:27:23

and peace cannot just come out without the feeling of love. That's why the Prophet said yeah, wala to me know what

00:27:25--> 00:27:33

that is no one can be a true believer until he loves each other. When you have love you have peace.

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

Do you agree with me and brother?

00:27:40--> 00:27:42

We will love each other.

00:27:43--> 00:27:53

Do you love your wife? say to her when you see her? I love you darling. Do you love your children staycation I love you have them.

00:27:55--> 00:28:01

Keys your children is your children whether you kiss them, kiss your wife is your halala wife.

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

Before she become your wife, you'd like to kiss her.

00:28:06--> 00:28:09

After he became your wife, you have no time to kiss her.

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

something is very wrong.

00:28:13--> 00:28:23

Before you are married, you'd like to hold her hand. After marriage, she become a stranger to you. There is no more peace because there's no one love.

00:28:24--> 00:28:35

That's why the prophets almost always talk about loving each other. To the extent the Prophet said let me know I had to come have a family it might

00:28:37--> 00:28:57

not have of you can be a true believer until you love your fellow brothers. That how you love yourself. There are two kind of brothers to kind of family in Islam. The family being human children of Adam, all of us are the children of Adam. We are one big family.

00:28:58--> 00:29:01

The second family is the people who believe among you.

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

So the first family, the big family,

00:29:07--> 00:29:11

my family. I have a lot of peace with them.

00:29:13--> 00:29:23

One of my sibling, my sister, she's a free thinker. She doesn't believe in any religion. She only believed in herself.

00:29:25--> 00:29:42

And another sister of mine. She's a very strong Christian. And we have other sister who mix up with everything. Some of them Christian, some of them Buddhists, some of them anywhere he goes. Now she is a free person she believes in everything.

00:29:46--> 00:29:51

And hamdulillah I'm the only one who become Muslim among the sisters and brothers.

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

But we have a lot of peace

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

because we love each other

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

as family

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

And then we try to show them the beauty of Islam.

00:30:06--> 00:30:21

We tried to show him the beauty of Islam. And when we talk to them about Islam Alhamdulillah fellow brothers is that they are prepared to listen to us. To the extent when I talk to them I just came back from harsh so they pay me a visit.

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

I showed them maka,

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

they cannot go to Mata I bring my car to them

00:30:30--> 00:30:35

and bring the picture of mocap to them, show them how the mock car looked like.

00:30:37--> 00:30:40

And I said to them, anytime.

00:30:41--> 00:30:48

I said, when you're going to visit Makkah, this is the most sacred place on Earth.

00:30:49--> 00:30:57

A place that you will see million of people from different color will get together to worship the only one God.

00:30:59--> 00:31:04

Sometimes they ask us Can we go to Makkah? Can they go to macabre?

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

Can a Chinese Hindus a Christian go to Makkah?

00:31:11--> 00:31:12


00:31:14--> 00:31:27

After a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow Anima Hamada Rossum, what they have to do is they just make the declaration of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah,

00:31:28--> 00:31:36

then when they have peace, we will bring them to the city of peace to the country of peace.

00:31:37--> 00:31:45

And you can see millions of people gathered together doing the same thing. In the small city.

00:31:46--> 00:31:47

There's no fighting over there.

00:31:50--> 00:31:54

Then a lot of pushing is like body massage.

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

But there's no fighting.

00:31:58--> 00:32:06

million of people. They got accident, but they only get angry for a while and Alhambra peace Salaam Alaikum. No more fighting.

00:32:08--> 00:32:18

No more arguing when they got hit another issue that saw Malika waalaikumsalam colossal you go my way Go man, we gotta move. We got to keep on moving.

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

This is the beauty of harsh

00:32:23--> 00:32:27

and a lot of people are not able to experience them.

00:32:28--> 00:32:37

We want them to experience it. We want your friend the people of Chennai to experience it, how to do that bring peace to them.

00:32:39--> 00:32:42

And when you bring peace, you can bring them to the Holy Land.

00:32:44--> 00:32:49

When they go to the Holy Land, all of us will become more holier inshallah

00:32:51--> 00:32:57

and then we will press parents together we will grow together as a big family.

00:32:58--> 00:33:10

Then we'll share whatever we have. Because the professor might have remind us if you love something that is good for you. You must also love your brother to have the same thing that you love.

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

Then only become a true believer

00:33:14--> 00:33:18

and only Islam provide us this fellow brother and sister.

00:33:19--> 00:33:21

Whoever have been to Makkah he know

00:33:22--> 00:33:29

whether you are poor or rich everybody dress the same color of carom. Same dress.

00:33:30--> 00:33:40

Everybody will go to arafa in the same time. Everybody worries tight the same albia lebay comme la mala Bay.

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

La byculla Sherry Kanika Bay

00:33:45--> 00:33:58

in an Honda one, Metallica one moon, la Sherry, khaliq. Everybody, Puri, white, black, Arab, non Arab. Everybody say the same word.

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

Everybody do the same thing.

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

Every tawaf seven rounds in seven times.

00:34:09--> 00:34:26

There's no such law or if he's a VIP, he goes for five rounds. We IP three round. No, no, no. If he's a king, one round now whether you are King, whether you are VIP, whether you are no p everybody has the same seven rounds.

00:34:28--> 00:34:35

To show you everybody is equal, how rich you are, how poor you are. We all do the same ritual

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

to show the peace that we have

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

and inshallah if we work together.

00:34:46--> 00:34:51

We understand the meaning of peace. We are going to grow together.

00:34:52--> 00:35:00

Because when Islam talk about development, prosperity, he is not talking about your own development. He is talking about

00:35:00--> 00:35:53

About the development as a whole for all mankind. This is what Islam promote. Not only you become raised, he wants everybody to become rich, not only you become happy, you want everybody to be happy. Not only you want to have security, you want everybody to feel secure living in your environment. That is what Islam provide us. Hello, brother and sister. We hope Allah subhanho wa Taala will help us to understand the spirit of Islam that is based on peace. That's why when the prophet SAW some stuff, his mission he called people to come together to be a family. So that we live together like a big family and we grow together, and we develop together, we can live and die

00:35:53--> 00:36:04

together. So they all of us will go to Paradise and meet each other together. Do we love that? Brother? Do we love to go to Paradise? Brother? I don't hear you.

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

Yes, you must say yes.

00:36:08--> 00:36:18

There's nothing to be ashamed of the Sunday we long for this what we want in our life, the end of our life here is for here after

00:36:19--> 00:36:26

we suffer a bit here. We give more here so that we will take more in our era.

00:36:28--> 00:36:36

If you want more here, you may get less over there. Why not? You give more. Because here is very short.

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

Most of us who are here today, maybe you are 40 years old, above 40 years, that means we still have maybe 20 years to go.

00:36:48--> 00:37:20

And those who are 60 maybe you still have 20 days to go oh to shore is a shift where you said we are going to go back to die after 20 days. No, no, I'm not gonna come to listen to your talk anymore. No one knows. You can leave this hall after this and you may not come back. I may leave you and I won't be here anymore. No one knows when you're going to die. But the best thing for us to do now is to grab the opportunity to find inner peace

00:37:21--> 00:37:43

we've unlocked worship him do what he want you to do. And then insha Allah, you will bring peace to your family, your neighbor, your nation. And wherever you go in sha Allah, people will love you. People will honor you. People like to be with you because you bring peace to them.

00:37:44--> 00:37:50

And the Prophet. I like to end the saying of the Prophet The Prophet said a mean man.

00:37:53--> 00:38:33

A true believer is a person who always bring benefit to himself and he bring benefit to others. While at the kulu Kala Elena's Don't be a burden to other people. We do not want to be a burden to our family. We are going to be a burden to our children, to our to our wives to our country, but we want to be beneficial. So please understand the concept of peace and please work together as a big family insha Allah, Allah help those who help themselves and remember peace come from inside.

00:38:34--> 00:38:45

May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us peace. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us your success in this world and the hereafter. Amin aerobill alameen wa sallahu

00:38:47--> 00:38:57

wa wa al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Subhana Allah komaba Hamdi a Chateau La ilaha illa Anta istockphoto kawakubo A Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:38:58--> 00:39:13

Zakouma her check hussaini. At this time, we would like to move promptly to the question and answer session are a few guidelines which I need to share with you to make sure that this runs effectively. And I would like you to all listen, remember this?

00:39:15--> 00:39:32

Questions by non Muslims, male or female, have priority over our Muslim audience here because our Muslim audience, as many opportunities to ask questions. So if there are non Muslims in the audience, we would like to hear the questions from them.

00:39:33--> 00:39:33


00:39:34--> 00:39:41

if there are no questions from non Muslims, then we would accept that the Muslim brothers and sisters for one line at the cues

00:39:42--> 00:39:52

that they do not bunch up around the mics that they ask questions specifically related to this topic, that they keep their questions short,

00:39:53--> 00:39:57

that they ask one question at a time and refrain from making statements

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

as for non Muslims,

00:40:00--> 00:40:38

You may make any criticisms, you may make any statements and you may ask any question Do not feel ashamed about any question that you may ask Do not feel that you may upset or offend. The only way to get an answer is to ask the question so there's no holds barred there's no limit to what you can say and but try to use nice manners inshallah. At this time, inshallah, I would like to remind you that there are two mics, one in the front for the brothers on the rear actually in the front and the sister section for the sisters. If anyone writes a question, that question will receive second priority

00:40:39--> 00:40:54

questions at the mic our first priority? And at this time I would like to open up this question and answer session for shake was saying ye on the topic, peace and prosperity, Islams goal for humanity.

00:40:55--> 00:41:10

Again, if there are any non Muslims in the audience, just make your way to a volunteer that will assist you in getting to the front of the mic. If any of you are sitting next to non Muslims, please do encourage them to ask a question. If they are not going to ask the question ask the question on their behalf.

00:41:11--> 00:41:54

Rather you in the front? Could you please state your name, occupation and briefly state your question? I am not a law. I'm a doctor, dear brother, in spite of Islam is the religion for peace. And in number we are increasing throughout the world. Yet, overall, the Islamic community is in great turmoil and in without any peace. I don't have any doubt in our religion. My question is, Is this because of our weakness in our demand, or because of the test of Allah. If I'm not wrong, the brother is trying to share with us how he feel to be a Muslim. We are proud to be a Muslim. We believe what Allah say and what the prophet have taught us.

00:41:56--> 00:42:11

But we are having some problem today because Muslim country seems to live in the land of unrest having a lot of unrest in tomo that mean they are not living in peace. There is war everywhere.

00:42:12--> 00:42:23

We do not deny that one of the costs of this kind of war that's going on is because the Muslim is weak in the Eman

00:42:24--> 00:42:27

because when you have strong a man you have strong love

00:42:28--> 00:42:31

and love will overrule anger.

00:42:32--> 00:42:46

And when you have love, you have more peace. People do not want peace people are gonna love us to live in peace. Who don't love us to live in peace is our number one enemy, the tripod.

00:42:47--> 00:43:07

And they are to kind of shape man shape and Jean wall ins. You got the strengthen from the G and the shaitan from human who cannot see us live in peace. So they create a lot of turmoil, anger among the nation and the Muslim become a victim.

00:43:08--> 00:43:21

I believe insha Allah I've been traveling everywhere promoting peace. If people say Islam is a religion of war as to show me Show me in the Quran say Islam is a religion of war no.

00:43:23--> 00:43:27

As the Islamic religion of peace, because the word Islam means peace.

00:43:29--> 00:43:50

So inshallah brother, yes, we do not deny the weakness of our Eman make us have little patience. But you have a strong demand. You have strong patient, and then you have love and whatever people want to do to us, we always know how to control ourselves.

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

Yeah, Zach alohacare. Brother.

00:43:56--> 00:44:03

Section. Do we have any questions? volunteers? Also, could you try to get some non Muslims in the system into the mic? No, no.

00:44:05--> 00:44:09

Let's do it in for a peace of mind. Can we do yoga meditations?

00:44:11--> 00:44:24

It is allowed in Islam for yoga. Now the sister is asking can we practice yoga? Or can we get involved in a kind of meditation to achieve peace? Is that why you are asking this?

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

Now we have a better way to acquire peace is to perform our prayer. Performing the daily prayer will help you to acquire peace faster than any kind of exercise. Because if we talk about yoga, meditation, what is yoga and meditation is something that belongs to other people who do not know how to communicate with the Creator. So they form their own way of exercise to bring peace to themselves.

00:45:00--> 00:45:33

When we have the best way to communicate with the Creator with Allah, then the best meditation is to a solid Namaste. Namaste is the best way of meditation for Muslim. We do not just sit straight, but we make we stand up, we may or we make sudo and all this movement will also make your body healthier. The blood that flow in the body will flow better and give you help and energy.

00:45:35--> 00:45:54

Now, I do a lot of exercise. Meditation. Yes, yoga, yes, Tai Chi. Yes, kung fu Yes, everything I do. But the best one is when you make solid, a law, you really find inner peace. Of course a lot of people today who

00:45:55--> 00:46:00

can not feel the peace inside them because they are not doing the right numbers.

00:46:01--> 00:46:19

You must understand what you are reciting in your prayer. And also why you move from one movement to enter the movement with the right knowledge of solid you will sure to have peace of mind Hello, okay. Brother in the front inshallah The next question will be from you.

00:46:21--> 00:46:27

And even the gentlemen in the front, if you don't want to ask your question, you can write it and just pass it on, someone will ask for you.

00:46:29--> 00:46:31

So I'm wearing a burqa.

00:46:34--> 00:46:54

In your speech, I explained how to spread peace among your fellow Muslim brothers. But I would like you to explain to us how to spread peace among among all Muslim brothers to like to spread down all that will be one of the steps in threading prism owns array placement other methods available for this purpose. Now Zack alohacare.

00:46:56--> 00:47:01

If you look at the teaching of the Prophet, when he meets people who are not yet Muslim,

00:47:02--> 00:47:50

now I always use that term not yet Muslim, I hardly want to use non Muslim because I when I say non Muslim, I am judging them. That you are not Muslim. I cannot pass judgment to them. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala say, we're in a documentary mushrikeen esta Jara for a Gil, who has what is up calama law from likoma, Camana zelicah. Another common law when you see the beautiful word of Allah, how do Allah address this group of people, Allah See, if any of the mostly kin, the people who do not worship a law, come to you become your neighbor, or ask you for help or anything?

00:47:52--> 00:48:23

Do not leave them until you manage to stand the word appease to them, share with them about what is Islam, tell them a law. Now after you have showed them, Islam, and you have told them about a law, if they decide not to believe or not to follow, don't disturb them, don't force them. Don't put any pressure on them. Make them feel safe.

00:48:24--> 00:49:18

Being your neighbor being your friend. Why? Because Allah zelicah the common law because this group of people or people who knows not, Allah use the term zanuka the common law Yeah, Allah, Allah do not put judgment on them. You know, you got there are people who knows not. So the Prophet always when you see people who are not yet Muslim, he called them to peace to Islam, or yohanna kulula illa Illa if they decide not to follow, the prophet will make do to them. alhama de ha de como la, the prophet, keep on making them pay for them, not cursing them, passing judgment to them, you understand that brother? You got the message now. So the least that we can do when you meet people

00:49:18--> 00:49:20

who are not yet Muslim, pray for them.

00:49:22--> 00:49:23

me do that.

00:49:24--> 00:49:36

Please do that because this is what the prophet have done. You know, when he ran the bar if to call people to Islam, what do he see from the people of stones, not flour. people throw stones at him.

00:49:37--> 00:49:47

The angel who is in charge of the mountains, the hill around came to the Prophet asked him for permission to destroy the whole people of tarrif.

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

What did the Prophet said in need lamb as the iron Wallachian boys to die in Warhammer. I am not sent by Allah to destroy anything.

00:50:00--> 00:50:06

To bring destruction but I am I was sent by Allah as a savior

00:50:08--> 00:50:29

and a caller to Parliament came and then he is a llama de comin for in the Himalaya. Oh Allah give guidance to the people of Him who go against me today because they do not know who am I? You see the beauty of the prophets teaching people throw stones at him, people curse him. People say he's crazy he make prayer for them.

00:50:30--> 00:50:59

So there's the best thing for us to do to our fellow brothers and sisters who are not yet Muslim Hamden. Shalom for your question, inshallah, we have a gentleman who would like to ask a question now, if the gentleman could please state his name and his occupation? Before answering any question or making any comment, please. His name is Val Raj. He is a businessman Alhamdulillah. So he's asked a question time Well, I'll translate in Sharla to English.

00:51:00--> 00:51:18

In their culture, they can go to many places to meet their law to meet God. They've got lots of places for pilgrimage for Muslims, you need to go to Mecca to meet Allah. Do we can we meet him here itself? Or is there any other place we can meet him here? It's one, two, he would like to go to Mecca. What should we do to do that?

00:51:20--> 00:51:59

The most lame do not believe that. God Allah is only in Makkah, no. Allah is above the heaven. He see all of us. He see us now he see you now. He know what is in your heart now. mocha is just a place where all Muslim will go once in a lifetime to perform a pilgrimage. The last pillar of Islam to teach the Muslim that all Muslims are like a big family, whether you are Arab or non Arab, there's all but Allah is not dead.

00:52:01--> 00:52:02


00:52:03--> 00:52:05

in the heaven up here

00:52:07--> 00:52:08

you can see him

00:52:09--> 00:52:13

but not with your eye. But with your Eman with your face.

00:52:15--> 00:52:20

If you want to communicate with Allah is very easy. You don't have to spend any money.

00:52:21--> 00:52:27

You learn about Islam. See the officer of peace vision of Islam.

00:52:28--> 00:52:45

And if you make a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow under Muhammad Rasul Allah, today, inshallah, this coming year, you can go to Hajj, you can go to Makkah, no problem, no problem at all. They are prepared to assist you.

00:52:46--> 00:52:57

You understand that? Whether when you say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, that is your passport to go to Mecca. Nobody can stop you anymore. Not even boost can stop you.

00:52:59--> 00:53:20

Even President Bush he can travel everywhere. He cannot go to Makkah, because he don't have La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah you understand that brother? So we welcome you to Islam. Okay, we welcome you into Islam. And when you become Muslim, there's nothing for you to lose nothing for you to learn. There's a lot for you to gain. Please explain to him. Zach alohacare.

00:53:23--> 00:53:44

This time we'll take a question from the sister section please. Could you please state your name, occupation and briefly state your question? Slowly Come brother. This question is on behalf of another sister. When we have lots of troubles and tension in our mind, and how do we overcome it in an Islamic way? Allah subhanho wa Taala remind us He created us he know

00:53:45--> 00:53:58

that we have a lot of weaknesses we have a problem. So he said yeah, Allah Zina Amano at aloha to Rasulullah am remain calm for internal official in pero de la Sol,

00:53:59--> 00:54:33

Allah say, O you who believe in Allah and the Prophet, you must be faithful to Allah and be faithful to the Prophet, and on the leader among you. If you have any problem or dispute or tensions, prayers, please look for a good color, good scholar that can guide you that can bring you back to what Allah said in the book, The Quran and what the prophet have said in the Hadees because by going back to the Quran and the Sunnah, all the problem can be solved.

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

Do you understand this? We know we have problem what problem personal problem family problem, children problem. Now how do you solve this problem? You got to go back to Allah, Allah is the one who all of us. He knows our problem more than we know our problem. So we must go back to him and see what Allah wants us to do to solve this problem. We are going to have a lot of counseling session

00:55:00--> 00:55:22

Here in sha Allah. So, if you still have any Cisco have that problem please come to us we will try to guide you because in the question is too general but if you still have a lot of problem come to us inshallah we will try to help you to solve your problem, but Muslim believe no problem that cannot be solved by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:55:23--> 00:55:25

The only thing you must come back to him

00:55:29--> 00:55:36

brother in the front inshallah, take a question, inshallah. Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh walaikum salam rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:55:37--> 00:55:58

Chef, your message of peace is well taken. What is your message? Are the people of Riot inflicted by non believers? their homes burned, their business destroyed? What message you have got them? Whether we have to say peace, peace, peace, of what

00:55:59--> 00:56:06

are you referring to all the people who are not yet Muslim non believers oppression on believers? Okay.

00:56:09--> 00:56:11

What is our stand?

00:56:12--> 00:56:24

What should we do when our fellow brothers Our family has been oppressed by people who don't believe in Allah, who are not in the same pit that we are in?

00:56:25--> 00:56:43

According to the teaching of our Prophet, when the pagan The trick is to kill the believer, the Prophet would try to negotiate with them. When they kill the Muslim the Prophet do not fight back. But he hold on.

00:56:45--> 00:56:56

And humbler the believer if they have patiently as a man, if they will kill because of that, they will die as a Shaheed Allah will reward them paradise Alhamdulillah.

00:56:58--> 00:57:28

But what we must do, we must have a lot enough patience and wisdom to talk to the leader. Say, is this what you want from us? Do you think this is the best way to solve the problem that we have? Maybe there is some problem there is some tension here and there. But is this the best way to solve our problem? Our crisis? Show them bring the mind you know, the mind the disease, show them bring the leader show the house? This is a Muslim house,

00:57:29--> 00:57:33

do you think is right for them to just burn it down like that? What should we do?

00:57:35--> 00:57:58

patient is very important brother You cannot say be Be patient. Don't worry, pray to Allah. No, we must address the method. We've responsibility. We must be brave enough to tell them what they do is wrong. their religion is against human law, and is against the law of God. Because no religion allows you to do that.

00:57:59--> 00:58:22

But they themselves is out of control. So we cannot just follow them. They burn our house, we burn their house, they kill ourselves, we kill the job now then there's no more peace, even the profit to the extent that the Prophet command his people. If the pressure is getting stronger and stronger, again, the believer migrate leave the country.

00:58:23--> 00:58:25

The Muslim gotta leave got the Mahendra

00:58:26--> 00:58:38

to show you how peaceful the Muslim Nazi they cannot fight back. If they fight and they die they die as a muthiah as a Shaheed. But Allah do not allow you to do that yet.

00:58:39--> 00:58:48

There will be a time there will be a time the Muslim the Prophet say is like a bee. You know the bee

00:58:49--> 00:58:56

and most men cannot leave the prophecy. The true believer is like a bee a bee Don't disturb anybody.

00:58:57--> 00:58:59

But don't disturb the beehive.

00:59:00--> 00:59:32

When you disrupt the beehive, when the bee come out, he will never return until he get his target. The Muslims are very patient but don't over or under estimate their patient. One they come out they will not rest until they meet Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't think any nation who understand the spirit of Islam will have one any problem with the Muslim but because they don't understand

00:59:33--> 00:59:36

and the Muslim is not showing good example today.

00:59:37--> 00:59:47

So sometimes there is some fault from us. So we must try our best to solve our problem in the way that Allah is happy with us not with anger

00:59:48--> 00:59:54

and not with your with our knifes but we've reached them.

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

You understand that brother insha Allah I hope all of us will learn

01:00:00--> 01:00:47

Yeah, the best way to solve our problem in Sham. Okay, this will be the last question of the session. So if the gentlemen would please state his name, his occupation and briefly state his question, brother, a salaam aleikum, Wa Alaikum. My name is Mansoor Ahmed. I'm a software professional. My question is, Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked the dua to Allah that Allah should not destroy this ummah. But Allah put a condition that till the Muslim oppresses other Muslim brother, he will not destroy this world. But today, there is a lot of misunderstanding between the Muslim Brothers there is a lot of separation and disunity among Muslim brothers. And we do not know Allah

01:00:47--> 01:00:56

is very conscious about his promise. Allah has promised that he will not destroy this world till the Muslim oppresses other Muslim. What do you say Oh god, this

01:00:57--> 01:00:59

is true what the prophet have said.

01:01:00--> 01:01:16

It's very true that a prophet know what is going to happen. Allah give him the knowledge and the Prophet have won us. If the Muslim is going to fight among Muslim, then Allah we're going to destroy us and replace us with another nation.

01:01:17--> 01:02:08

Now Allah do not want you to fight with each other. As Muslim believers, you can not fight with each other is haram. Because the Prophet said, Hello Muslim, Allah Muslim, hi Rahman, de ma Hua ma boo, boo, all Muslim, to another Muslim is sacred is haram, his blood, his life is haram for you to take, you cannot inject him, you cannot even kill him. You cannot take his property, his property is taken, you cannot take it away from him until he gave him he gave it to you willingly and also his honor. dignity is something that you must protect, you cannot destroy and humiliating.

01:02:09--> 01:02:39

This what the prophet have said. So when we keep on doing things against Allah, what is happening now, the unity of the oma is getting weaker and weaker. And we've been bullied by a lot of people, because of our own weakness, but Allah have won us if you are not careful, I am going to replace you. Saya stop dill Coleman, I am going to replace you with another nation who is better than you.

01:02:42--> 01:02:52

We understand that brother. We know what is happening. But we not participate in that. We must not suffer anything that cause friction among Muslims.

01:02:53--> 01:03:04

We should work together and keep on praying and be patient about it. Insha Allah May Allah help us and strengthen the Muslim Ummah and unite your heart together for the sake of a mosque?

01:03:06--> 01:03:10

Sir, my name is Muhammad Musa Ahmed Khan. I am an engineering student.

01:03:11--> 01:03:54

Sir, are we supposed to convey Islamic greeting Salam aleikum to our nodded Muslim brothers. Now this is a very important question. I have started to inform all the brothers and sisters here that as Muslim you always greet each other with the greeting of peace, Salam aleykum. Now how much when you meet people who are not yet Muslim? Now, we are worried that if we used it not yet Muslim people, now they thought that we are trying to force them to become a Muslim? No. So the Prophet do not allow you to offer that greeting to them. But if they offer you this greeting, you can respond.

01:03:55--> 01:04:02

But not for you to offer yet why? Because when you start to offer, we are worried that they don't feel happy with it.

01:04:03--> 01:04:41

Because they are not Muslim. They don't feel happy that you greet them with the Islamic greeting. So just greet them with a normal greeting. But when they accept that Islamic greeting by offering you that Islamic greeting, then you can respond because the Prophet said man Salam aleikum Minh calcula for Allah He was in an era who D and o nasrani. And Omid Lucien Raja, who are Buddha, in the Hadith of the Prophet said, anyone that offer you the Islamic greeting anyone? Because Allah is the one who can everybody.

01:04:42--> 01:04:57

Even the one who offer you this greeting is a Jew, or Christian or fire worshipper, respond to his greeting. How do you respond if he gives you a salaam aleikum? You see ya can

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

all use it while I lay

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

What is the meaning of that same to you, my brother, if you come to me with peace, may the peace go back to you.

01:05:09--> 01:05:18

If you come to me positively or the positive thing will go back to you. Yes, you can do that. You understand that? And hamdulillah

01:05:19--> 01:05:37

Zach, look here for the question, inshallah. I believe this now will be the last question for the evening brother, could you please state your name and your occupation before stating your question briefly? salaam aleikum Mohammed Abdullah kadhi Saima working in hotel management. So just nowadays the Palestinian people are facing a lot of problem.

01:05:38--> 01:05:56

When they are attacked by the they are still using the stones because of the lack of technical knowledge. So what is the Islam still about the awareness of education and technical skill? Alhamdulillah Allah subhana wa Taala revealed the first Revelation the first one your ekra bismi, Arabic Allah, Allah

01:05:58--> 01:06:36

they mean Allah one every one of us who have knowledge seeking knowledge education is far far the aim is an individual obligation. a must for every Muslim the prophecy, tala l farinata. Allah Allah Muslim, seeking knowledge is an obligation to all Muslim, male or female, young and old. Yes, it is what it is something that we must address this matter. Yeah, there is a lot of difference between people of knowledge and people who have no knowledge of law see in the Quran, Holly yesterday Allah Xena and Amman well as in Allah Allah moon.

01:06:38--> 01:06:56

Is that the same between people of knowledge and people who have no knowledge? Of course it's not the same. Now, people have academic knowledge, but how about the technical knowledge? Yes, everything. Everything that benefits the oma benefit human the Muslims should get involved in

01:06:57--> 01:06:59

Yes, it is an obligation

01:07:00--> 01:07:01

that Allah has

01:07:03--> 01:07:04


01:07:12--> 01:07:13


01:07:15--> 01:07:18

paradigms must be one.

01:07:19--> 01:07:21

There must be one

01:07:23--> 01:07:24

each day

01:07:27--> 01:07:28

through darkness and

01:07:36--> 01:07:36
