Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
Allah praise due to Allah, Allah mean as the creator of all things the sender of all profits from Adam to know are the Abrahamic, the Moses or Jesus at last messenger of Allah, to mankind to every one of us every race, every nation, every tribe, Mohammed Salah salam, and the revealer of our truth. May the mercy and the blessing of Allah Rabbil alameen be upon all of us who are present today this morning. And also the audio mostly in the evidence. May Allah give guidance to those who are not yet Muslim.
Either the our neighbors, our colleague, our friends, or anybody whom we know whom we do not know.
May the blessing of a lot of alignment also be upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam who was sent by Allah as a mercy of Rama to lil al Ameen, to unite everybody together, whether you are Arabs or non Arabs, black, white, everybody will leave like one big family when they understand the spirit of Islam.
And Nozomi Allah bless the family of the prophets, the companions of the Prophet, those who follow the companion they've been what target target in the great scholar of Islam, known to all of us as Imam, Abu hanifa. One of the elders followup with Imam Malik and Imam Shafi and also the last Imam known to a lot of Muslim women and humbly Rahim Allahu Allah in Germany and, and also to all the scholars. We have tried their best to uphold the teaching of Islam and do today
to my brother chairman and also our young
Mr. Kelly here
and all our brothers and sister who are here with us. May Allah bless us. Now the topic that was given to me is about understanding our Deen Islam.
Now the beginning of my opening speech is on hot battle with a hot battle hodja Hubbard alhaja means one of the
the pre citation of the prophets Allah Islam the reminder of Prophet Muhammad so Muslim, there is very important to all Muslim and believers. The Prophet son loves him before he start to give any advice to his own man. He always remind his own man to be grateful to be thankful to a lot of learning how to be grateful how to be thankful is very, very important. Why because the power of being grateful and thankful a lot promised us in Chicago to St. dynochem. If you are thankful and grateful to a large favor, a lower increases Baraka
upon what he has given us. If you are thankful with the help that Allah have given you, so you must use your health to serve Allah
to please Allah don't waste today you are healthy tomorrow we do not know. So a person who are thankful to the help that Allah have given them, they always take care of the health, take care of their food, their dream, so that they will be healthy inshallah it will take help for granted, then you're going to suffer.
The same for those who have family is my is a blessing to have a family. So is the duty for us to try to protect the family, keep the family strong. So that insha Allah, the family will grow with harmony, love tranquility. So there'll be a lot of good thing that gonna happen to the family. If you got a job, you should be thankful to Allah and you'll give the best services so that your boss is happy with you. And you don't have to worry that they are going to terminate your contract number one, and you don't have to worry about any bonus because the boss when you make your boss happy, they'll know how to praise you ish or how to reward you kindly.
This is very important in our life, and then the profit continue by reminding his own man to be humble nasta in one istockphoto meaning we should learn how to be humble because humble
nerves do not yet bring any bad thing to us. humbleness always make us closer to everybody. And people feel very easy. dealing with people who are humble, arrogant is a sickness. Aragon is a disease. So we should try to minimize the price that we have. Everybody has their own price we know but the prophecy always be humble. Secondly, always ask Allah for forgiveness. Why? Because when we look into each other today, we can add me sincerely for the sake of Allah. We are all sinners, do you agree by then system then we are all sinners by looking among ourselves looking into our IV No, we are not Angel we are sinners, we commit sins almost every day.
And then we ask Allah for forgiveness every day. I stuck with a lot of stuff in life after our prayer. Get one asking Allah for forgiveness. Why? Because we have to accept the fact that we are no angel. And we are not perfect. You're all a just a human being and human being do commit sins. The Prophet said khulumani Adam cut down what Kira kata into a boon, every Children of Adam, whether you're Muslim or non Muslim, when you reach the age of puberty, then you start to commit sin.
Only the level of sins may differ minor, major little more, there's, but nobody can say I'm sinless.
So don't expect perfection from anywhere. That's how it goes.
Now brothers and sisters, the end of the hood battle hodja the prophet and by shadow Allah Illa Illa
Allah and Muhammad Abdul who are so now let us come back to the Shahada. No one can say that I'm a Muslim, without this declaration, know what
you can do. I believe in Allah, I believe in the angel. I believe in the books I believe in the prophets. I believe in a day of judgment, I believe in predestination, kata and kata. But
do you make sure that it's not important?
When you do not make Shahada, we have no right to confirm that you are Muslim.
But you see, I'm a Muslim, married I believe in Allah. I believe in Prophet Muhammad.
But this what you say, but you refuse to declare your belief by reciting a shadow Allah, Allah in the law, what a shadow under Muhammad,
then we cannot come from that.
You follow her closely shala or somebody may say I believe in Allah, I bear witness there is none worthy of worship except Allah and I bear witness prophet Mama, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, but they still refuse to say a shadow Allah, they just go to the translation
can we accept that?
Normally maybe for us, okay.
Why maybe to speak Arabic is so difficult.
So, you give the translation I accept that you can accept I can accept, but Allah to not just accept what you want to do without following his instruction.
Even the condition to be a Muslim, the minimum condition is to say a shadow Allah Allah in the law what a shadow under Mohammed rasulillah then everybody must recite the same shadow.
You are not given a choice. It is an order from a mighty
if you really believe in Allah and the Prophet there is no excuse no reason for you not to resign.
If you can then we will get you like how people come to me say I am not an adult. I am not used to this Arabic what I may recite it wrongly as it No prob I will get you slowly say ash do example. Then he'll say a shadow Allah Allah La ilaha illallah
Muhammad Muhammad Rasulullah Kala
is that easy?
Very easy. If they still refuse you know they're playing a fool Yeah. joking with you.
They just want to please you forward by the same time. No, no, no, no. But one day declare that then we have all the right to say, now you are a Muslim.
Whether you are Chinese by Chinese Muslim, Chinese Muslim until today in China, you have about 60 million of Chinese Muslim
doubled the whole population of Malaysia.
They are more senior an elder than Malay Muslim Islam entered that earlier. But when a Chinese Muslim you see it becomes so that
if their Malays go to China, they become so durable because the Chinese Muslim are older in history anyhow.
Malay becomes an Arab become Muslim before the Arab except Shahada. They are all pagans
in Islam don't belong to the Arabs, Islam belong to the Arabs and all Arab or Muslim
or Arab Muslim Abuja. Khalid Abu Talib Abu Talib before not yet Muslim or non Muslim struck the father of an Indian is not a Muslim.
Just an example.
So, but one person want to make Shahada, that particular person must be informed. Don't just call them to resign and then just accept you are not fair to them. You are misleading them. You are Miss presenting the theme of Islam
with a wonder person want to make sure that they must know number one life crappy thing. Nobody can force you to recite the Shahada, nobody.
Even somebody who wants to be a Muslim come to me, I cannot foresee I cannot imagine. Okay, cha cha cha cha No,
I don't do this.
I said Do you understand? What is the Shahada?
Do you have any knowledge about Islam? Do you know what is the article of faith? I have to be fair to them.
I have to explain to them.
Why because we do not want people to come into our faith.
without knowledge, we do not want blind follow.
Because knowledge come first before was an action and common
knowledge always come first, before action or before you say anything. You want to say something you must have some knowledge, then people will honor your words. You want to do something you must have knowledge. If not then people say what are you doing?
This is very important.
So that's why we have to guide them make them understand.
In the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one, the person makes Shahada, Allah
he or she is ready to sacrifice his life, her life, her well. Everything for the sake of Allah because they have the understanding
is a commitment is a submission to Almighty Allah.
But today, majority were born Muslim you don't understand them.
Because you are born to it. So you cannot feel you don't have any experience about how to become a Muslim. But we know what happened in the time of the Prophet anyone who become Muslim. They have to go through a lot of pressure suffering, some being tortured. delallo was tortured.
So my, the first woman who died as a shahidan sumaya and her husband, Yasuo,
they have to sacrifice their life for only the ILA in the mom.
But they are ready to then no problem. You want to kill me because of my belief, I prepared to die for my belief.
Now whoever makes sure that you have no problem,
nobody see anything, you're so free.
That is the understanding they have one you make sure that you are going to be by caught by your family. Your family is on you. As a born Muslim, you don't have the experience.
So you don't really know the value of Shahada. But for a revert, they have to prepare themselves mentally. Yeah, they have to prepare yourself physically and also spiritually. This is what you're going to encounter. After making shard
you need to have commitment
What is the commitment?
Because the commitment now is that one you say that you believe in a lot you submit to Him. They may whatever Allah want you to do, you must try your level but I'm not 100% we can do it. Being Human, we are not perfect, but you must try your level best to follow his commandment.
And then when you follow the commandment of Allah, the way you want to act upon the commandment is you must follow Muhammad Rasulullah that is the shadow.
I was thought to simplify to all of you know the five pillars of Islam. Do you all agree with me?
If anyone asked you how many Pillars of Islam what we will see how many Pillars of Islam
now think think carefully before you answer how many pillars are Islam?
I don't hear anyone say there's someone with a child is it how many Pillars of Islam what you will be our answer? Please share with me five.
Now I'm going to ask you again. When you want to say something make sure you are sure
100% Sure. If not then maybe
pass the word maybe you'll feel a bit now give me and that dad said how many pillars in Islam
juden how many Pillars of Islam
now when you hit five you must be sure it's by
there's only five pillars
but the reason I tried to no question your bag because I want you to be sure thing that you want to say that is fine. You yourself must be a firm that yes is five
colors. If you cannot five when I asked you I you should
maybe say when
then you have a problem. Yeah, that mean you yourself are not really
sure about what you learn. But is five
if anybody asked us how many articles of faith what would be your answer?
Roger Fisher come help me.
How many articles of faith what will be the answer?
So you say
broken Eman, six Arby's.
But normally I will. I will ask again. Please think carefully.
Please make sure you are answering the right answer please. If not, don't just say six. You put maybe
then suddenly people started at nine
as it Okay, who said nine then somebody raise your hand Okay. Okay. Now stay with me. Tell me what is it nine. Now they got confusing you. This is the thing that we are facing today we as Muslims from them. We we have been taught from school. But now we are not sure
because we are not tested.
Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was tested by Gabriel Angel Gabriel come and ask him how many pillar of Islam and he said boo Nia Islam Allah comes. Islam is based on five pillar and he had to explain one by one and Tasha do Allah Allah Allah Allah and Muhammad Rasul Allah, wa masala zacco sama Ramadan wa jal by minister de la Sabina
then Angel have to confirm sada
is a direct interview normally interview you that
I think we are born with here who want to interview is maybe sometime during a time when they interview you and that is where you got padding.
Just an example.
Now, come back to the five pillar or is that the first pillar is shahadat, a true or not?
If and not yet, Muslim come to you, brother and sisters. He looked at us mostly, always pray
time of day. Maybe they are attracted to our movement. They say, Hey, can I join you? Can I join you in your prayer? What do we say to them?
What are we going to say?
You want to join you in the prayer you want to pray the hall and then your fan was revealed toppling review have to review your excuse me on the pray my noon prayer. Then he said, Can I join you?
Now the one who's asked, asking you can I join you? is Peter, his name is Peter.
What are you going to say?
If you don't know who
how can be the Grand Prix with me?
Why dating? Should you allow him?
Yeah, you should be allowed will come in. But of course, that prayer has no meaning to him.
He just want to try get some experience. How do the Muslim perform their prayer? The Chinese have their own way the Christian have their own way. The Hindus have their own way today is their day. Yeah. But how the Muslim
all you have standing bowing to do to stop them that
I do that?
Because I was excused. I'm going to bring even my nephew, my nieces, when they come they stay with me when the time of prayer
and then they can follow you uncle why not stand behind me.
Just lead the movement.
it is not. Why cheat upon them because they are not Muslim.
But they want to follow they want to learn
when they want to fast in Ramadan.
Do you allow them to fast?
No problem. What they gain is less of cholesterol last week, you're going to lose weight, of course insha Allah, they're more healthier. And also they save some money. For for tea time for lunch. They don't have to spend there's nothing wrong but whatever they do have no value in the sight of
a loved one except as an act of worship. Why because they do not make the declaration.
Now when you make the declaration of a shadow Allah, Allah, wa shadow under Mohammed with understanding, not just verbally with understanding your heart feel for it.
And you are not being forced and you are ready. And because everybody wants to make their child when they come to me. I will be very open. And thanks to them say now Brother, Sister, please. You must be 100 maybe 1,000% sure that the one you come in is attracting norceca
in your in annual live and die as a Muslim that is what Islam does.
It's not like going to a hotel check in check out.
These religion is not like other religion.
You want to come in the outcome because it's for you. But make sure you really know what is it you're committed in, in forever.
You may have other problems.
You may have marriage problem. You come to Islam because you want to marry somebody, no problem. We can arrange it make it easy for you. But if you have any family problem in the future, maybe a wife divorce you your husband will leave you but you don't abandon the religion you don't abandon God because of this problem.
We must make sure they understand
why they have the understanding. Then I will say now you're ready. Let us know.
And also when I want to do that I say do your family know that you want to be a Muslim? There is our way here. I do know other people. My value is different because we Asian,
Asian we are very family oriented. We are not like to West, the West. Everybody is very individualistic.
Husband and wife also very individualistic. You go to shop and then you order is your wife. But when the bill comes two bills.
One bill for the men one bill for the woman is a separate bill. Why are you going to pay to build two services
But there is the value. I don't want to owe you anything either you owe me anything. Even we are husband and wife, but come to foot you pay your bill it might be
some there is a Western value. I was in German I was in France before some other friend invited me for dinner lucky I only choose thing that is cheap.
The beer come I have to pay my view. But they invite me.
here if you do that I kind of friendly.
What kind of a good friend easy to put in buckle?
You can do that? I bet it's common.
They're very individualistic here Asian we are very family oriented. So I will always advise them, do your family know that you want to be a Muslim? who cannot
know over their dead body they cannot they will never. And now
Do you know why majority of the people here? When the as children want to be among Muslim? Their parents disagree? Do you know why?
Some sisters do you can share with us that you are exposed to things that you expose Why?
Brothers? Do you know why?
I assure you one day to find out.
Next time they go back to school or you go back to office tomorrow, days offices open. For those who have colleagues who are not yet Muslim, ask them
I just want to ask something.
Normally, if somebody could do a Chinese want to be a Muslim,
how do your parents feel towards the intention? Just try to collect some information is that easy?
Is the ad
Demeter I give you some homework?
For your knowledge.
You must have the understanding you must know why.
Why stop them? What that stop them from making Shahada. The Shahada is so simple, by making a shadow Allah Allah illallah wa shadow Anima Hamada rasanya Muslim but why is so difficult for them to even say the child
the parent will even say to their or their dead body Wow. Seriously?
If you do that,
and some parents either do the commit suicide or low
yes you say there's
somebody was it if you do that it is on you know my son.
Now mind you check this out. Next time you see me we will discuss
why is it important to know why?
Because we don't even ask
why there are so many Chinese. Yeah, in the 60s in the 70 majority of the Chinese are Buddhist and Confucian.
Not many of the Chinese are Christian.
maybe 55 to 60% became Christian.
They become Christian Why?
Why can't they become Muslim?
young Why are young men here Why?
this some tuning number one, people have been confused in this country.
Because religion is related to raise.
And sometimes when a person wants to be a Muslim, they force you to change your name before now Alhamdulillah thing had changed my time when I became a Muslim I cannot maintain my old name.
I cannot put for saying D.
Hussein v My father is you.
I must have a complete Muslim name. If I want my own name to be there, then alias. So you'll be a very long name
without changing that you cannot be a Muslim.
But Alhamdulillah yeah because we thought that Islam belongs to us Islam don't belong to anybody it belongs to Allah in the dinner in the mohale Islam this religion don't belong to the Arabs neither belong to the Turks we belong to Allah
raises a raise
if this race is superior races is so advanced, so good. Yeah, we show good example. good conduct. People may be attracted to us.
But we don't feel good example.
Just one exam. Yeah, but the brothers say is true.
get very confused. They don't want to be
mentally they want to be who they are. I want to be my I want to be an Indian I want to be a Poland I want to be a
German because I'm one as a German.
The second is also very true.
I came to Islam 1968 is not because my friend called me to Islam.
Not even one single Muslim friend that I knew. Talk to me about this religion.
Religion is Oh, this is ours. You can appeal to data.
You have AI insha Allah pero that's
the kind of feeling
so what can we do at that time when people talk to me sometimes they are very sensitive they want me to know what they are talking about me they say today we be careful we have barley biographers you know as Bali via
I don't know.
I don't have anything jawi nada Bali by a body by us. They are talking about Samadhi they are talking about me.
They refer me as Bali Maya.
Now how can you get close to the not yet Muslim when you have that kind of perception and negative feeling towards them? You can
look at the sleep you know solid
the invite Alberdi that's why they grow. We don't do that
we don't do is our form.
So it's time for us we have the right mindset. This religion is a very beautiful radio or the religion in the world today that can unite everybody together whether you are poor, or rich, young, old male, female, black, white, Arab, non Arab, and the one Kadima
by shadow under Muhammad Rasul Allah, everything become gratis. We become a big family.
That's why you can go to China, you can pray behind the Imam, no problem.
You can go to Africa, you can pray with them. No problem. You can go to Arab you can play with them. No, they came to hear the previous verse, no problem. Why? Because we all worship the same God facing one payplan we recite the same Surah allopathy Have
you never come across as go to China?
Then Saturday? Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim when written it in mentary. Then you have problem. What surah is that?
And you go to maybe you go to UK, With the name of Allah, the monsoon food and banning patient or braise you to law, Lord of the word. I don't think you ever pray behind him.
Yeah, I had the problem when I was in the state. That was before 911. I used to travel to the state. For what because we have a lot of friends that they invite me, the deputy mayor of Detroit, invite me to Detroit to give a talk.
I was surprised one day when
I went to Chicago
and Chicago is where you know, the Nation of Islam. Yeah, center was based in Chicago. You know, what's Nation of Islam?
Who is the leader of the nation Islam today? You know,
who is the founder of Nation of Islam.
Come on. Elijah, Mama.
The other one who do allow that one dead, converted Muhammad Ali.
Malcolm X. Remember all this the history?
I went to their center?
When do I went there? I went Giamatti
I called my metallic to bring me I want to see them
I was surprised.
Describe it. So one of the Imam called ministers they call the Mr. Minister.
Yeah, they came out and we were sitting on a chair that is in a home
that is spray.
So they said their prayer
not even one single Arabic word did is they recite
all 100% English
a lot they grade along
with the name of Allah, the Merciful, the banishing den fattier or translate at the end our men
or the German army. And then he gave a talk after that finished prayer.
So I thought that was the
I think that was then you say finish as
you don't pray him all we just finished helping on you just finished your prayer.
There is no god knows to do over there sitting on the chair.
Finishing the test how we pray.
Then I went to the room talk to the Minister.
He asked me where you from?
Malaysia, no Malaysian came here to talk to us about Islam.
Islam was taught to us by our new prophet here, God sent him to us, Elijah Muhammad.
There are a lot of Arabs who are here that are Pakistan, none of them come and talk to us about Islam.
This way the brothers hit we don't do that one.
But now I just want to make it give some example here and
now look at this Shahada.
Why is Shahada play the most important element and the most important condition to be a Muslim?
Because after that, other pillars are the ritual is connected to this to kalama Shahada.
when you want to perform prayer, if you don't make Shahada, your prayer has no value. It's just an exercise, movement, maybe some Tai Chi here and then
when you perform the prayer with the Shahada,
then it become an act of the better.
And what is the relation between prayer and Shahada? You perform prayer because of La ilaha illAllah. There's how the connection, you perform your prayer because of Allah, not because of the people now, and the way you perform your prayer, Mohammed Rasulullah that's how you're connected.
Say, I pray for the sake of Allah, but I don't want to follow a prophet Mohammed.
Prophet Muhammad pray Sumo touriga I want to pray three Raka doodle
I went to plasma extra
you can do
when you do something you are connected do it for the sake of a mob purely for the sake of Allah then the way you perform it Muhammad Rasul Allah.
When you want to give Zakat donation, you must do de la la ilaha illa Allah because of Allah if not alone accepted.
And the way you perform Zakat, you follow Prophet Mohammed, Salah, how many percent to whom you want to give.
All these you must have, this is the guidance.
When you want to pass your pass, you must pass for the sake of Allah.
Then you must pass the way the Prophet has taught us how to pass passing is not just staying from food and drink but everything is a self control program
is a very disciplined kind of training program for all the believers.
Example you want to perform Umrah and Hajj
for the sake of Allah, Allah is Allah, but you must follow the way of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
you cannot just go there and wear your own kind of dress and then you may own Tao
The prophecy is terrible you sit Nolan, seven is too heavy for me to fall.
Who give you the authority to change the tower?
This is to show you how important La la la Muhammad Allah
you want to seek knowledge today you are here for seeking knowledge is for the sake of Allah La ilaha illAllah
Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam what kind of knowledge you are seeking?
You must know opinion ideas
my opinion your opinion my eyes No No No No, we are not here to talk about my opinion, your opinion, my tradition, your tradition, we are here to know what Allah see
all along and what the prophet Swanson said in his heartbeat or color so that is pure knowledge.
This way when you want to seek knowledge the Prophet remind us make prayer make dua Aloma Sydney illman nafion
will also be coming in Malaya.
Oh Allah increased increase in mean knowledge that benefit me
and give me a way to protect me from knowledge that do not benefit me. They are knowledge that do not benefit all of you.
But it's also knowledge base.
Any knowledge that bring you further and further from Allah from the Quran further and further from the saying of the Prophet This is not pure knowledge
This is very dangerous
the knowledge they have united all the oma in the time the Prophet first generation second generation third Gen is because they were united through the pure knowledge
no opinion no tradition no culture involved beyond a common law or color a pseudo masala
that's why all the Muslims even have one definition they have one teeling
one objection objective in life. Everything one because a lie is one. The book Quran is one our Prophet is one
alone. Today we are so confused.
When we talk about knowledge on these shifts it that shifts it so many shifts. We also don't remember who is the chef
why not use it allows it so
everybody can check the Quran is the same.
The prophets almost upset so in Hades Macari had this I have Muslim Alhamdulillah you can practice the knowledge with confidence.
You don't have doubts anymore.
Because whatever you do is based on solid reference.
Today we are very confused.
The Shahada so we have problem
What do you think brother and sister I want to share with you again?
One day a friend come to you said I want to be a Muslim. China okay. I shall do it
in the morning. Is it continue? No, no that one as seen in the evening.
Sit on the seat now. evening Good
morning. I shall
continue continue Mohammed
maybe after one hour?
What are you going to say?
If you don't have knowledge and understand Okay, that nothing when
you don't do that.
The base ROM is not here for you to play around.
If this is the condition, you have to follow the condition we do not know now you accept Allah you don't accept Prophet Mohammed. Then after one hour you say you accept Muhammad you don't accept Allah you're playing around. No, no, no, no. You have to accept both.
So any one of you who have friends who are not yet Muslim one to know what Islam is good. But you do not know how to explain to them, bring them to us.
Let us follow up for you.
Or the show interest they want to know welcomed in our center. We are open. We have our classes in been there from
around 20 years.
Maybe you are not aware of it.
And we have every classes we have not yet Muslim
One not yet was the idea Chinese Buddhists or the Chinese Christian. They are there they are they attended a class for years. And not yet mostly
because we don't force
and they enjoy a penny on credit card. They know that what we reinforce is not returned by his values.
A lot of our Muslim, you learn a lot of ritual without values. And that's where something after a certain
age, when young brothers or sisters,
they get dairy.
Yeah, I would say very confused about the whole thing.
They pray when they're young, but they reach the age 1520 they start to stop praying. Why because they don't have the value.
They know you're taught how to recite these, what to do, but without values.
thing that you do without values have no value.
And this is why we are lacking. We are talking about ritual, ritual ritual and we argue about each other for years. Until now,
we talk about evolution and they now know and
Why because there is a whole view we were taught
we waste a lot of time focusing on all this minor one minor issue and we ignore the major the major and the fundamental issue above
and the major one is our believe.
What should I do?
When we say that I believe in Allah, Allah
The only one true God who created all of us Now remember, remember this what we say
the same thing when we confirm again al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen everybody recite this in certain pata?
What is the meaning of Al hamdu? lillahi Rabbil alameen please one of the brothers Can you share with me?
share with me the young brothers. What is the meaning of Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Come on, boy, don't worry. Come
by then yes no problem
sugarboo g Allah 200 so Kalyan Allah,
What do we understand by 200? Korean Allah?
This ayah is to remind us that our God Allah is rubble and Ameen. He is the God of the world, the grid, every single thing he creates Chinese he created Indian he quit Arab he quit Malaysia he created everyone that African Black White is allowed creation.
Do you know how confused the Muslim today some Muslim thought that the Chinese may have Chinese God?
The Indian have the Indian God.
The Muslim have a Muslim God we must and cannot think like that. There's only one true God Allah who could anybody because they don't have the understanding. They create their own gods.
Have you been to the Chinese temple before but
Have you went to the Indian temple before?
Not yet? Have you bypassed any of this temple before? Yes. What do you see?
statue How do the statue look like?
Try try again. Next time you go. You just thought and just have a look.
If you go into the Indian temple, you are sure to look at a lot of images.
And all the images look like that.
You go to the Chinese temple. Also you will see images and all the images look Chinese.
Some look like me with a beard.
If you don't believe us, you just
have a look around.
You know why?
They know that is not their God
is their heroes their warrior
their holy men
so they imagine everything
to be like them
because they are black so everyone that they want to worship is a black one.
Do you see is the yellow skin one everything look yellow
if you go to the state you go to Africa and even you go to Philippines sometimes you encounter
the people of the Sally you know Sally
they have also images
the images over Philippine look like Filipinos
the images in Africa look African
the one in that in other country white because Is it because they are white so they want that image to look white
so when the black Sally want to go to the white shows they said no no, no, no, no our
our Isa is white Isa you look at your color please. You are black. This is not your place races
so when the black guy feels so offended they went back to their own people they say let us build our new one
we build a chapel and then we pin black and then our cross is black and our image is all black
so when the white come in say I'm sorry oh but we are pleased and yet but but yeah, look at your skin. Ours is black Swiss look at the salad is black. Look at the image of Jesus is a black Jesus.
You belong to us.
But we don't have that problem. The Muslim wherever you go, we believe in Jesus we live believe Moses, we believe in the Abrahamic, we believe Mohammed, we don't have any images. And we worship on an online blog. That's where how big. The mistake is. There's no images purely with the paper. And then we worship the one true God who created everyone.
But sometimes we also have that kind of belief. Chinese God make the Chinese Indian God made the Indians, the Hindus and then or actually God made the orange actually. No, no, there's only one God proper Island.
There is very important.
The right understanding.
I show you another example. Last one.
For an The Book of Allah was revealed. To who?
To Mohammed, and for whom?
look but alas, it is important what Allah said not what I say what you say.
Allah say in Ramadan Lizzy Zilla feel
in the month of Ramadan we revealed the Quran as a divine guidance for mankind for mankind who definitely not for Arabs only.
Not one Muslim only as a guide for mankind.
But the way we
understand what Oh, no no for you, you
know, you're not clean. No,
you cannot hold
example. How can this book be a guidance to them when you don't even allow them to read?
And the first one is really
just an example. You see how confused me
because our understanding of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah is not correct.
It just the way we were taught, I don't blame all of you.
Neither I blame or this college because they were taught like that.
But why Islam in the time the Prophet is different because Prophet Muhammad
he was talking to the pagan to the not yet Muslim. And Khadija, the first lady who became a Muslim they are all reverts
the first friend of Rama Abubakar accept Islam they are reverts.
The first cousin of proper Muhammad Ali the reverse Abubakar Omar Osman Ali, they are all reverts
from pagan to Islam. So this painting is different, the understand is different. And that is why in 23 years of Tao
the whole landscape of Makkah and Medina change from dada
dada, dada helia become
just 23 years How many? How old are we now?
We are more than 23 years old 1450 Have you changed one person?
Have we changed one person or non a not yet Muslim to Islam?
What do we say? Not yet. We have to plan before we go back to Allah, because Allah is going to ask all of you, but do you do the knowledge that I've given you? You keep it
You betrayed the message of Islam.
You see you like your friend who's a good friend and you don't call him to Islam?
You don't share this important message with you?
What kind of friend are you?
And our prophet will stand weakness against all of us he has gone way the message and he said
i 100 convey from me even one is a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah share these Shahada with them.
Can we do that brother and sister
Sean say inshallah
You must have that feeling the commitment you feel for them you're not ready now my you learn our start
start to come closer to us then we will show you the way and insha Allah then you start
we just have a reboot revision yesterday again a Poland a brother from Poland came to us um there are
many things that we can do
you have friends invite them for the first one you have indeed every talk
In our center you haven't sold and given time of the year from Sri Lanka Sri Lanka to China Chinese the Korean Korean t Japan Japanese TV you want
you want to wide Western tea. We have
masala tea we have everything we have. So make them feel at home first. Then if
you're all like one big family that we thought he died not from you, not from me. He died from Allah but you must do something consistent. You cannot just say this is not my job, not your job. You say to Allah when you see him? Well, no, I'm not prophet Allah know that you're not a prophet. By law gives you he died. You got the diarrhea, you got the message? Why do you keep the message to yourself?
Why are you so selfish?
This is what you must think that insha Allah blesses brother and sister 1115. Now, I personally believe to my humble experience. If a person who is seeking
for God, they really want to look for the truth, Allah will guide them.
Because the truth is for the seekers.
There's why because I live spiritual thing from young.
And that's why when I was a Buddhist, I served the temple. When I was a Christian, I served the church. When I became a Muslim, I stay in the morning.
I lived in an environment and that helped me to develop to strengthen my belief.
I have a lot of Muslim friends I say but none of them talk to me about Islam. Because the interest in me is there. And I keep on asking, asking, oh God, show me Show me the way then inshallah but sometime majority of us don't have the interest. They don't even know whether religion is important or not.
They have no problem to believe in God. They have no problem. But they do not want to be committed to any kind of ritual.
So it depends how you present to them.
We have the best product
but how are we going to
do to present the product is up to if we are good salesman is like it people ask you why you say I pony is good or you must explain every iPhone is so friendly.
So do you so that application you must meet people convince them then to Ocala iPhone.
Before I fall, what do you have?
Everything nokia nokia skyrun
keyaki are ready to jam in big Kotaku
does an example.
Yeah, in Malaysia to my humble experience, I was involved with their reboots. I was in charge of the rewards. Yeah. Not yours had that was in it at
in 1980s. Yeah, I was involved with per diem.
Yeah. But again, is an organization's established by tunku, our first prime minister to reach out to the Chinese in this country. There is the purpose of working
to reach out to the Chinese we can strengthen the oma the nation by inviting more Chinese to Islam.
I would say
majority here in this country,
other country people have different experience here.
Majority who enter Islam
I would say 90% because of marriage
is good is better than not marrying
is an attraction Alhamdulillah Allah give you data to one sisters Muslims is the log if you die to one Muslim brother
is just a mean is just a suburb.
But even the intention is brought that Islam never forbid do anything you must guide them from them
the Muslim must show good example the in laws must play their role
and then you see these revert insha Allah will become a good Muslim and Muslim
but so far majority because of that
and we have a lot of problem also because the Muslim don't show good example
the mostly the couple
the born Muslim side sometimes they don't pray so how do you expect every vertebrae
That's why we have people who revert after 1015 years old they don't even know how to recite it Why? Because the husband don't get
the husband don't even pray so how can you expect the wife to pray?
And husband do a lot of bad things outside don't you good example.
So that's why
our caddy was established also because of their how to help this reverse Do we have classes backup follow up, we have daddy system to back them up.
And this is the LED all the brothers just still who have the time can come and
offer your time we'll show you how to do that you can do a lot
give a helping hand.
They need a lot of help.
Yesterday so we have a case before my class
an hour Audi Sr 20 over years became a Muslim have children
but now the husband had left her
she had nowhere to go
I asked how your children do they pray
they are the one the daughter yeah she learned how to pray but not the son
because his father never pray
when you talk to the son is that my father Papa don't believe Mr. Sabri.
You see the problem
I will say that majority who convert true in this area because of the attract
shrimp from the other party Alhamdulillah is good. But if you can show them good example guide them to become very good Muslim.
Now any last question No sister
very important question system number one
Children, when they are young, you cannot teach them about aqeedah because they just cannot extend they don't understand.
But your impulse value, adapt.
remember Allah, all knowing, all seeing all living all these? Yeah. make them realize, Make them hear these words. Don't do these things because Allah here do not want to do because it caused harm to you.
If this is good, Allah call us to relate everything that they do with Allah, Allah, Allah
just reinforced it.
Don't just pray with the understanding, pray with understanding, read the Quran, stop one page, explain to them the meaning of the Quran. We have been reading the Quran without understanding from young until all
the How can the Quran benefit us? That gets even he didn't read the Quran, but he read the meaning. He understand and then he became Muslim.
Few brothers in the state that we know they just read the meaning not even the Alabama just the meaning and the home they see the Quran
is a miracle.
It can open the heart of the readers
but we who have been reading the Quran, and we can abandon Islam, because we don't understand.
So the best thing for you to put on the children at the children at this age, remind them to do all the good things relate with Allah. Really Allah Allah live you know, when they do something wrong, Allah forgive you don't do it again. You just connect them with that and then they adapt it with your right hand dream with Don't forget a last name always the provider.
You don't want to explain in detail because the children This is just cannot absorb they just can't understand.
But slowly as they grow the environment is important.
That's why the Prophet said pulley mala youlet Allah Phaedra Ababa who you have Italia Irani, oh my god,
every child is one pure and clean, it is their parent at home that is going to change them. If your environment is Islamic, you show Islamic values Islamic kind of spirit that spirit world
you would be with the children
when you talk to each other brothers and sisters husband and wife we full of love and respect, then that kind of environment will help
the children to have all this good feeling
and they start to love that they do respect that that they respect their mommy Why? Because they they look at their father and mother how respectful they are, how close the know then they will be even farther like the shop at the at the mother than they are on the sandwich shop and the mother.
There is number one. Now your environment at home is so good. Because if not you are the one who's going to make them disbeliever if you talk like a belief disbeliever you act like a disbeliever Even you are Muslim, your children will pick up all this character from you. You are their heroes. They are the audience.
We are the actor and the actress.
Don't underestimate what the children can do don't understand. Don't think that children do not know what you are talking about. Just regular adult have issues. Don't talk in front of them. Privately you solve your problem. Children are very sensitive. They're praying they're listening.
When they do talk to your supplier How can we know
it's not good, but they are very sensitive.
Number two when they grow big when they recently did go to school you must check his environment outside because the Prophet said Admiral Allah Dini college led for arducam manuka honey outside their environment will change your children.
And lastly, brothers and sisters, don't keep the children at this young age. The PlayStation
I guess, don't spoil.
Now they're hooked the addicted from very young age, though they don't talk to you anymore.
Don't do that.
Then very dangerous. You will know what you do not know what you are feeding the children.
Now, last question.
Yeah, it depends. It depends. It depends on the individual.
And that's why people come to us through our humble experiences, we will know how to
I will say that we all know how to help them.
And other people will tell you from their heart if you want them to be honest to you,
I become a Muslim because of you. Not because the religion because there is no other choice. If I don't accept Islam, then I cannot marry you. So except because of you.
Sometimes they will tell you out front, remember, you don't call me to go and pray and go and do this thing, because I just accepted them because of you. I only want you
these that we must strengthen the Muslim now.
We must educate the Muslim you must know what to do what to say to them.
Before you can help them.
If they are so straightforward, we also must be very careful.
So we will we know how to get them we know when we know that there is their intention. I said no problem. No problem. But I'm going to tell you a reality of life.
What do you want in a marriage?
You want peace?
You want to have a good family?
There's what you want.
But do you know what would happen if you don't practice this religion?
This kind of thing can happen. Do you want that bad ending? We must get them slowly. But there's nothing to lose. If you become a good Muslim, you don't lose anything. But now before you talk this to the river, you must stop the Muslim you must show good example.
You can teach your wife or your husband, bring them along you when you come and learn. Bring them along, let us learn together. Let us relearn again.
Because sometimes, if you really ask them, they can be very truthful to you. Yeah, they can be very truthful. I've seen that before.
So when we know that this person is so I mean, is it I have nothing to do with this religion. But because this is the only condition that I can marry you, I don't mind. But remember
don't call me to do this, do that after that.
And now you have to talk to the Muslims right now.
Privately tell them this isn't a man
you're going to be your husband, your wife
must be responsible
or now you can call him to learn now, if you have no interest, then you delete everything
until he shows some interest that may his intentions are to change and then you open up again no problem.
Other matters inshallah you can follow up again, let us know if you have this issue or those who have this kind of thing bring them to us. We will show you how we talk to them you cannot witness yet the discussion and then you will learn from that. And sorry if they have the time here. And May Allah forgive us and strengthen our Eman and give us the wisdom to understand what is Islam the two teaching of a law and how to be a good Muslim so that we set a good example for others inshallah, we'll be like 250 we're afraid that one will hamdulillah mean so Hanako Behanding, Shadow Allah,
