cattle moldiness Olympic and then subsequently after a number of different incidents and we shall not reveal
and then we just decided to go live right so hamdulillah we we are going to be discussing Jews during the fall inshallah Allah and we will select 10 verses as per usual so I'm not going to delay much further into ask our beloved quality sub mowlana Salim to get into some clearer voice and chanting mala before we start, father. Obviously this looms largely, you know, minds in order to know the fact that Oh, oh, shame studies is is not in the best. That's why I started so gloomy. Yeah, no, he's not. I mean, Alhamdulillah I think he's stable in everything, but he is in hospital. And so that makes us anxious and we beseech Allah subhanaw taala for his cue, and I think we might
just, you know, make a form of tawassul that you know, if any good comes from this and even if the mere fact that we talking about the Quran draws blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah you know, grant that to be a means of Shiva for him, I mean, and on top of just talking about it, he is our teacher, so everything that we say really the eastern ad goes through on that ball as well and this is the is navigating.

I mean, I don't know sometimes when you start the podcast and I feel like when I can just go to the side thing, we don't need to talk. Yeah, but then, of course for the benefit of those who can't understand the Arabic directly, we try our best inshallah to Allah. May Allah accept this if it's from us.
We are discussing giustina formula dish and give us a rundown of the Jews basic overview in sha Allah before we continue Bismillah just 24 starts off with the second half of surah. Two Zuma
very beautiful verses mentioned the in speaking of Allah's overarching mercy, speaking of
the day of gamma and how Allah subhanaw taala would allow, and would make that the different groups of people that are going to Jannah Allah paints the picture, the group of people going to join them up into the picture and says, you know, what are the things that led them to that particular point, and the joy that they would find in the hard work that they had gone through in this worldly life. And of course, the enjoyment of the others, the people that are going to join them, they will reflect on the enjoyment and the time that they had in this world and see you know, our it was of absolutely no benefit to them. Sue Rafi, the author,
Allah subhanaw taala mentions a number of things specifically regarding to be more sorry salat wa salam. And from amongst the, amongst these people, the fact that there were others that also called towards Allah, that Allah says that this was a person that had concealed his Eman
And you know, the fact that he was even one net
was calling towards the same message of the messenger. These are verses that were decided specifically and will probably be touched on in, in the talk in sha Allah. Allah speaks at once again about Jana and Jana, more the people of Jana and the people of Jana, and how they would converse with one another.
And the fact that there are so many signs that we ought to look at, that will draw us to the fact that is only one Allah, these are all parts of surah Javier of the surah have a way of sort of facilitate
the chapter dealing, just speaking about the greatness of the Quran, in the authenticity of the Quran, the fact that the Muslims are those that take the guidance from the Quran, they reflect on it. And the only conclusion that they will come to is that it is, as Allah says in one of the later verses would wash if it is a guidance, and it is a cure.
So yeah, these three sutras are the basically what takes up the bulk of the, the 24th use the 20 footers is also the start of the housewarming, as our scholars would call it, there are a number of chapters that start with the letters harming and off the each one of them that is a difference to the Quran, or the reference to the
you know, the words of Allah subhanaw taala. In fact, the first one year, sort of offer the verse that comes the after, doesn't reference the Quran directly actually speaks about Allah subhanaw taala and his qualities, but all the others would speak about Quran itself, and, you know, reference to the miraculous nature of the verses.
Now, I'm just gonna hit on just the interesting point about that two things, right.
The one I know this probably comes interest 25 because that's what I was preparing.
It's a fairly you can feel jannetty of N equal psi is I think Jews has 25 Yeah. But I mean, it relates to what you were just saying now about the gender jahannam thing, which is a recurring theme in these in the sewer, in fact, in the old Jews, because these are all mucky. So what is the kind of connection with the old Marcus was, in fact, late Mackie Swan and the late Mackie Sawa have a distinct nature to them, because of the trials and tribulations that the Muslims are going through at the time. Of course, you had the boycott, if you can call it the boycott, but the Muslims are basically kicked out of Makkah, and they were going through really tough times the amyl hosen took
place the dive took place the the Exxon Mirage, according to the majority view took place the so it was a very eventful time. And it is a time of great difficulty for the believers. And in light of this, you know, the swab speak about those things right. Now that particular verse frequent will jannetty have a coffee sigh. Okay. Yes, it's a recurring theme. So you know, it comes in various ways. But I read that actually, I heard that Omar Abdulaziz
YOLO died and who I feel comfortable with saying that I do Lodi that I know for him. His wife actually reported that he used to play two records of dad every night, only two records, he wouldn't, he wouldn't do more. But she said that the quality of his two records of tahajjud would put anyone to shame.
She said he spent so much time in the end, it wasn't just about the time it was also about the depth that he went into. And she said he would he would love to recite this particular idea. And he would repeat it repeated and repeated. She said that when he would repeat this particular idea and
and connect to that Insider, he would cry so profusely, that she would be convinced that he was going to lose his life, that she would be without the husband and that the oma would be without a califa. And I just thought it's a very interesting point, you know, because these, these are tough times as well. And if somebody as biased as Omar, the second as he was known, could connect online such as simple, yet profound way and we should be able to take inspiration from this as well as the one thing and the other thing was a bleiben Miss Adela with that and I was telling you earlier
was a very prominent hobby there's so many for the oil of our beloved Mr. Wood in I mean, the list just goes on and on news are the first in place he slammed he was one of the youngest Sahaba of the time.
One of the main memorizes and transmitters of the Quran. Yeah. And he was the profits of somebody really. He really close relations with the wines this harbor laughed at a bill of 11 episodes and legs. I think it was climbing a tree and he had like thin legs and then they lofted his legs and I'm sure it was like a friendly loft. And then he asked him solo I said no like why are you laughing at his legs in the center because it's a thing. And then the Prophet Allah set aside and said his legs are heavier than odd.
His legs are heavier than odd because of
The wait man that he carries, you know.
And there was so many virtues I believe in myself. But the reason I'm mentioning this is because he said, your loadout I knew that when he when he said, when you find yourself in Lacan in the Hawa meme, which is what these who are referred to as mana Salim indicated when you know that you are in the gardens for your robot. And he said that I don't recall the exact words. He said like
you must be like you are in a garden, like you must admire the beauty and take the comfort and the benefits from these God and just look at the, the way that they spoke about the Quran like you when you find yourself in the house. I mean, it's like when you look around you like on a journey and you connect to
the Quran in this way. So, what was he going through at the time that he found so much inspiration during this tough time from the SWOT so hopefully we can shed some light on that this evening, inshallah, you can see that the very nature of it, it's very much eschatological in nature.
eschatology is basically mohtarma battle motif and what comes after this. And that's a primary theme in the SWOT. So from my side, I thought that just give that as an introduction.
You know, to Santa Monica
feels like a long time since we started that I didn't say anything but one of the, you know, two things. A lot of things stand out to me. Right, but two things stand up very
very saliently. One is the the idea that Allah is in control of everything.
And that even though you may not perceive it, now, there will come a day
that everybody will realize the fact that Allah is in control of every single thing.
Allah is in control of everything on the day of PM, Allah Subhan, Allah has control in control of everything in this life. And, and these, these different perspectives of looking at that in the in the surah, at least is that there is the idea of knowing that Allah is in control in that Allah can take people to task. And that's like a, it's almost like a, you know, a threatening perspective. But, but not just threatening. It's a perspective that brings about order that shapes your action, in a manner that's not, that doesn't lead to facade and corruption. But it is also the perspective of
you know, of consolation.
That for the believer, who is striving to live
his life according to the order of the Sharia,
with the internal states that please allow us to behind Medina of having a purified heart with sound belief in all of those things.
For him, knowing that Allah is in control of everything brings the consolation of the fact that you know,
what was happening is happening because Allah wanted to happen.
And at the end of the day, you'll see the divine was in a minute, you'll see the you know,
you'll see a last plane
and then the believer con but
you know, you can't but imagine that Allah is playing for the believers is beautiful.
I mean, what does Allah say at the beginning of sort of fusina I just thought hammy and Xena minara refaim 10, zero, Mina Rahmani Raheem
R Rahman r Rahim. This is like, you know, this lovingly merciful being that, you know, that that mentions this name of use throughout the Quran, the lovingly Merciful One has to have not an account of you know, it being wide up, but just because of his nature, it's almost as if we know that he's playing for the believers will be will be an expression of his loving mercy. And so there's a consolation in that in the way that Allah is in control of everything.
The second thing that the second theme that stands out to me greatly is, you know, the idea of
the fear own and the Moosa
the fear ironic forces in the mosaic forces.
And it's something that exists throughout time. The Quran mentions it so that we can recognize that there's forces at play throughout, throughout our existence basically, throughout human existence, that you have these forces of,
of evil. It doesn't matter with them, they may seem effluent, they may seem powerful, they may never be touched by sickness, it doesn't matter. At the end of the day, the delusions of grandeur, they own their own arrogance and the thought that they are in control and that they
you know, against the pure mosaic force that brings true guidance, despite seeming weaker,
despite having, you know, a deficiency in speech, right, despite having many of those things, it's the triumphant one. Now. And,
and, you know, it just so happens that, you know, this, the address of these forces in the surah.
The End the discussion that happens between that believing person and for our own and our own in his people, and will center around, I just highlight something that I think relates so well to what's happening in the world today, in relation to propaganda and media and the Palestinian issue, but I think we relate that
will relate that in a moment, so we can get into that. So that I think the first thing I mentioned was the idea that Allah is in control of everything.
Second was the Pharaonic in the mosaic forces, that that always existed at that time. And then,
and then it's also the idea of,
just make sure that you as an individual, are doing that I think.
Just make sure that you are doing that. I think it's an account of your taqwa that you are going to attain the abode of success.
That is an account of your taqwa that you can attain success. So, so it's interesting that, okay, firstly, deflection. So when I say unaccountable, I mean, it's not like your own action, as if you could compel a lot to give you success. Now, now, we know it always comes from Allah. But Allah exhort you to be conscious and cognizant of what comes from you, of the choices that you make. And an account that allows who are Hannah with the IRA will give you success, you know, and whether it is that you attain that success
in this world,
or you attain it only in the often, I mean, because the dean calls us to success in this life and the Knicks, right, but
that's like a universal.
But each individual, he may not necessarily experience like that.
On a physical and material level, however, he may have that success on a on a level that's much greater than just the material, for example.
Again, my mind just jumps to the Palestinian people, because the you know, urban, yeah, the the issue still fresh in our minds, but you can have people that are living under oppression and occupation.
And under a settler colonial state, and smile,
whilst you can have the oppressor dominating them, with fear.
So on a material level, you know, it only makes sense that the one with power should be comfortable.
And the one with that's being oppressed, should be uncomfortable. And yes, that may be so materially
but oftentimes, in terms of spirit is not the case. Now.
So that that also stands out to me the idea of, you know, these this man
of Allah Subhanallah 1000, students will have heard of this man was just like a normal guy
who believes he goes out any conference thrown in his people.
He's, like, you know, if we think of any superpower of our time, Phil Owen was like, he was the epitome of that that unequal power.
He had it all. He was so diluted with himself that he actually thought he was Allah. As Allah mentions that he says elsewhere in the in the correct way.
it's that same fear, and that fear being killed by some boy.
Where's that person? Well, that's that normal guy who just said believe he was willing to confront all the powers of the world because of his conviction. Yeah. And
yeah, I just,
yeah, just reminds us that, you know, we must never look at the world through only material things. Absolutely good. Material equality. And justice is not something that's always possible. Yes, we strive for it. And we strive for not necessarily equality, but food, for justice for people that everybody's needs are met, etc. There's no opposition, we strive for all of those things. But there will be cases of people that will live the lives oppressed, and we'll pass on like that.
But our life doesn't end with our worldly death. Yeah, I almost want to say don't feel sorry for the people should understand within the right context, man. You know, they I think, you know, we Yeah, yeah. Like I interviewed that the sister joumana from because, in fact, we envy them. Yeah. Like, you can't help but you feel sorry for them. But at the same time, it's like they'll put you to shame with the courage and the bravery and you don't necessarily want the payment or
wasn't taught us to ask for half year for wellness etc but said i'm dr Yusuf Patel we hope you're well I'm your pet you're looking off downstairs inshallah to add our coffee go to all the other brothers or mercan and Brian Japan and understand and become
so another Can I just money night for you I just wanted to say these Enya Tommy we hit easy I'm gonna give you the middle of the aisle right
alongside LSE infused to do to him electable ma whom wV
now is that in Houma samyama See that's actually in the in the verses that en la la la it's meant to be it's meant to be so so
yes, please do again just because it's relevant. Just will not find the Rahim in Latina yo JD Luna he it la he behaved is one point in other home in via sudo de la Cubana Maumee Valley De La Villa in Hua Semyon Vasil la Han Kusama, why they will all the aquadome in Hong Kong Allah like well I can occur a nasty lie Allah mon you must translate. Go get in natalina Eugene Ilona here who dispute regarding the verses of Allah bill at some point in time without any authority that came to them in fear so due to him ill lucky burn. They only have arrogance in the odds
that they will never actually attain. First I will. So secret addiction Allah in the host, Sammy Albus. Certainly he is the overhearing the Aussie Lacan Kusama aquadome, in Hong Kong, the creation of the heavens and the earth is much greater than your creation where that can occur a nasty lie on the moon, but most people do not know. So handle I think that just at that verse kind of summarizes everything you said in a beautiful way.
Yeah, I can't even say anything beyond that, you know,
if I can add this, to I can I can say something to you. And
there's a lot of times again, a recurring theme. And it very much ties into the idea and the belief in karma and the day of karma, because this world is not
always and very, very rarely is the place of justice, that you know, you would see these wrongs going and we think what is going to happen, who is going to take him to task When is it going to happen? When is it going to stop? When he visited to play some jazz ever said it's a place of justice. And you know, perhaps the few rounds of this world will will never ever be taken to dusk, but they will come a day. They will definitely come with a yo medallion for Vitamina ma the radome the wrongdoers the oppressors, the apologies on that they will not be able to help them, it will not be able to avail them anything while a human learner to and for them will be an ultimate curse while
on Sudan and they will have the worst of abodes they will have the worst of, of resting places of homes of settlements of whatever it is that they're going to be in. It will be the absolute worst place for them. At the end of sort of affair. Allah speaks again and he says I'm from our own center. And when the day will come when they will see our mind they will see our our control over every single thing. Although am and I believe, and they will say on the day that we believe in Allah. And we believe in Him alone worker from NaVi Marco NaVi machine again and we reject whatever other partners
people have been associating with. And Allah says falam Yaqui and follow me man.
The man will be of no benefit. Because in actual fact, that's like not the man because now Allah is really showing you. I mean, it's exactly like what happened to him when he was in the middle of the ocean. And then he said, Oh, now Musa now I believe that is one God. I believe in the God of masa and the bunnies, right Elan, I am of those that Submit. So Allah says, Now do you want to do an aisle and walk across a taco bell? Now you want to believe but before you know you had this total disregard and you will just have those that goes mischief. And in fact your your words were as we decide this evening,
we'll call of duty Camila, before we get to him before what that means is this idea actually just so beautifully, for me. I like this idea of the man that you alone 100 IRA, unaccountable belief in Allah
we may recognize that we don't at times ever it's within our power to bring about complete justice or perfect justice. But then account of our belief in Allah, we strive for it anyways.
So handle, we don't know what because
we don't do it. Simply because we want to see because we think we can manifest. But even when we know we can, we still make that choice.
We still make the gestures, we still try to strive for justice. And it's
Like, on account of that, that symbol of striving, at times, Allah gives it
all makes it manifest. And all that matters is the striving. Yeah.
It's like the divine claiming
everything is in the hands of Allah.
Allah says that it allows 100 taala is the one that makes the you know, the movie move forward. But, you know, we just doing, you know, we just driving a business we have our free will and, and, and what otherwise normally just do, the thing that I tell you to do, doesn't matter if you think you can bring that outcome. It doesn't matter if you think you can, you can change everything. What that guy to me that, that, that story of that movement. I just, it's so profound, you was just a guy,
a guy that believed he will he stood against around in his people
did he think he was gonna, he was gonna defeat fear around or all of the all of the ministers of your own all of his advisers, he just did this thing. Even if you must look at the example of ESEA to handle how she stood up against her. She's the wife of this opening some of this volume. And he man out Shawn, like anything? I mean, you know, this this saw? And she, she was doing the Hey,
no, no, the the lady who did the he have asiyah you know, she was busy doing the heat of the, of the child of Iran. And then something happened. And then this lady accidentally said something about,
about Allah, you know, and then this child said, like, do you know of a god other than,
you know, my dad, basically. And then this child is like, you know, perplexed man, like, what other God can they be? And then this whole thing came out that I see as actually a believer in the robe of Musa and Fiona is wanting to not only killer,
but torture her in front of everyone. Did she think that she was going to make an actual difference?
You know, in, in, in the world at that time, like with fear? Or did she do what she did, and have that type of cream? Because she thought, okay, if it was actually going to change your mind, the results didn't matter to me. It was the striving that that really did it. And the reason I'm highlighting this is because one is a curious example of a man you know, who must be gender just sound mentioning the example of a woman like it's not just men that must stand up for justice men.
Allah Subhana thought, Adam,
but then the other part of that same story that stands out for me, and it actually relates to this comment. Even then he said, we can see that there's no justice those that implemented and benefited from apartheid. I never counted for it and worse now many of them are claiming victimhood in that story. Well, that's what I would say.
If you don't know Maori Camila madikwe less tabula rasa before the Rooney actinemas.
Okay, me ahafo a
few 1000 people this is now just a little bit before the first was recorded he says
that when he leaves leave me with me kill Musa lick Musa Colin is low. In the hoffa, you by De La Nina Kuma, you said that, I wouldn't tell two people I fear that Moosa is going to try and change your way of life or that he just wants to bring about a certain level. This is fear around
right, the dynamical ruler.
He says these people that feel that Musa aefi is that Moosa wants to bring about fussa
he says that, you know, I think massages wants to change everything. Moosa wants to change the status quo. Moosa wants to Elisa is a troublemaker. Yeah, he's a terrible music theorist. And at the end of the discussion, the interferences call of your own mouth. He tells you, their own thoughts, his people, you know,
I'm just telling you, what I see. Like, you know, I'm calling you to my way I'm calling you to maintain the status quo. You know, we use this oppressive rule and everybody must accept that he's telling the people you know,
I'm just telling you what I see
what my ID Camila, Sevilla, Rochelle, and I'm guiding you to the to the, to the way of that correct the way of right guidance. And isn't that what we see in the world? These oppressive forces trying to whitewash the crimes trying to make it seem like the victim is the oppressor and, and it's crazy how sometimes people fall for it like guy kid with a stone
with a gun guy with the guys with a gun with a gun. No home. Homemade fireworks? Yeah, homemade fireworks versus
muscles that can pick up a pin from this from space. Energy. Yeah, it's like and and it's just so
not funny, but
it's amazing how Allah subhanaw taala showed us that that was the way of the Pharaonic people from the Yeah, that was the way of the of the oppressive people since then had his Malema. I'd say it's like the place stays the same. It's just the act is that change? Yeah. You know, because it happens again and again. Look, how recently study Nelson Mandela, the ANC What do they call service? What law can I mean there's no exception to that. If you were white back then Nelson Mandela was the theorist you except for the freedom those who are freedom fighters among the white
weather around the world. He was dubbed the daily list. You know, until of course people now change the perspective. You know what? Well, Lyle Lima. I believe that time is now for Palestine. People are changing the perspectives now more than ever before.
I have a lot of hope now. Because of this, this this last aggression against the Palestinians something called the Allah Masha fad, but something changed. And you can't you can't pinpoint only one thing, men. There's a number of contributing factors. But they're the battle is the long I yeah, that's what I was gonna say. I mean, we must never. You see what happens is oftentimes in the heat of that occasion.
We get super pumped up and everybody gets super pumped. Yeah. And
I know this time was slightly different. But I remember having like similar pump feelings before me 2014. It doesn't come close. I know. But at the same time, we need to have longevity. Absolutely. So the first thing that gave me hope after the initial reaction, you know, was the fact that
after the peace, what you call it, the ceasefire, ceasefire. After that, was kind of signed, then the Rio protests started in Capetown, specifically, and I'm sure in other places in the world as well. And upon up until now, we still see it boycotting and so on. But more so just eliminated. ago. Yeah, I'm saying we need to have longevity. Absolutely. No, no, no, you're right. You know, the I know, I have some friends that are involved in the Palestinian struggle and stuff like this guys from our community. Yeah. That, you know, they talk about this all the time.
Right. I mean, I have some friends that have traveled with
us are made and some of those guys were shall look good guys and activists for the schools. And, and I can tell you, that
you know, even in the times we nobody's talking about that always talk about Absolutely. And, and it actually just
to remind myself, I used to think to myself, like why do they always talk about
I actually really appreciate the nine I think we need to maintain that intensity of action. With with, you know, we have to be consistent. And you to see, I agree, I agree fully fully You see,
when convention cooling, people are yelling at new ways, like I still more I still can't understand how, you know, people in South Africa can go join the IDF. Yeah, right. I think come back to South Africa, like it's normal, like be normal. So when I was at Campus Academy was speaking to DC last year, as well. When I was at Campus, it usually guys would come to Israeli apartheid week wearing the IDF uniform
weighting some part of the, you know, of the IDF garb, it's like, and it's like, normal, they're proud of it. And they're not taken to task at all in our country they serving in an army that is accused of doing war crimes, right. And in the quiet times, we're not doing anything to actually look at and to toss, but I don't want to sound as though I'm gonna defend the South African government here. But I think it's based on the fact that they believe strongly in like freedom. And they haven't restricted anything. Let me let me explain. Screw that. No, I agree. I'm saying I agree. But do you know that these people that went to fight for ISIS, they came back? And they were
similarly lifted out? No. Yes. No, no, no. Yes, yes. No, no, no. Yes. No. Okay. Um, these are differences in you know, these definitely are definitely differences, that those people that that went and, you know, that might have gone to ISIS and came back. And we don't agree with that. Right? Those people have feelings about it. They, it's Oh, I see. Extremely discouragement. Yeah, it's like look is definitely something wrong. We just trust that you're not going to do it again. And you recognize the error of your ways. And, and you know, you monitor and all of those things know, those guys that go join the IDF. It's like, everybody knows about it. Yeah. Right. Yes, big difference as
normal. The guy would come to UCT wearing the clothing in the citizenship that they gave.
And it's acknowledged here.
Yeah, it's acknowledged we as in other countries, they, they I think it's in Argentina, if I remember correctly, we if you come with this dual citizenship, they don't acknowledge it, they remove it. Like Argentina gets recognized. So yeah, like, that's a big brand. I'm saying that, you know, how can we not in the quiet times when there isn't like integration that just happened? Yeah. Why would it tackling our government on these things? And, and I know, there were moves by Palestinian activists to actually take up this issue. But it's difficult, man. It's difficult because now it's not difficult. We don't get involved in it. Now. We I agree, but it is difficult at
the same time, because there's not only one issue, and there are many issues. And these issues come up all the time, if it's not a global pandemic, and if it's not Saudi bombing Yemen, you know, it can be anything a number a plethora of issues, which you, we don't want to belittle anyone, nor do we want to explain that one is more significant than the other. But I'm just saying this is a contributing factor for why we sometimes neglect to learn to be more consistent is one of the tactics. If I just you know, like I said, I don't have tons of experience and all the things I'm I mean, I haven't lived that long. But from the little experience that I do have, in my interactions
at university, like recordings rally apart, that was one of the things that the
if I remember, you know, the last one that I was at, people get into discussions, and then the zinus would always bring up this issue. Well, why are you talking about Palestine? Why not talk about happening? What's happening in Syria?
Right. Why and at the time, obviously, what was happening in Syria, what they were lots more lives being lost and stuff, like, why not speaking about what's happening Syria? Why speaking about Palestine? Now we say, we speak about both.
But it's a diversion tactic, men who must never fall for that kind of thing. So a lot of people that fall for this type of thing, whether even locally, they say like, yeah, you wanna go on about Palestine, but these Muslims dying in the cape flats, lucuma. Just because these problem with one part of my body, you know, doesn't mean I must ignore the problem with the other part of my body. You know, what I'm saying? It must give you a tinge to both, and people must never forget that.
The Palestinian issue is a complicated one. And as people they have no army they have no, they have no same as a complicated. A, it's a complicated issue for the way the world treated me. The way the world is, is complicated, but it's a complex, it's Lexus sitla occupa, of course, for us, you know, but not everybody sees it that way, even here locally, was informed into thinking that his company, yeah, so we must change that narrative. And I think the narrative is, as I said, it is changing. We can we can assist. Can I say we can assist the changing of the narrative ourselves in Charlotte.
It's called what? What about ism? Okay.
You're doing this, but what about that whatever. Yeah.
I also just wanted to say that
we need to question our government and national government we need to question about
that's that's one instance that you mentioned, you spoke about the EU citizenship that's one thing that's you're fighting in the IDF. That's another thing. But what about the deals with Israel? On a government level? For for weapons, man? Yeah, like a lot of the weapons and free trade and a lot of the weapons that that that we buy, we buy from israa, Tina, Tommy, they get from us, and they get from us yet. It's an exchange. There's some things I can think of the night vision goggles and stuff like that. So why I see a lot of people speaking about some political parties, but not others man. Like, I think when you get into that type of narrative, then it's more about politics. You know,
that's one in that one. You just look at the issues, regardless of which political party, you're coming from.
Lisa, get into political parties and then pushing it. I'm saying ordinary people,
ordinary people, if we organize ourselves, and we collaborate on issues that we agree upon, I may disagree with you on like 100 other things, but I agree with you on this thing. We can collaborate. And people can be dedicated, you can have dedicated task teams. And I think they do exist, really, like we have useful goods, we have a good foundation, all of those things. That but we know we must, as a community, yes, there the dedicated dos team that, you know, that constantly does things to help our brothers and sisters also in the world, but as a community, we need to give them our support with equal intensity as we do during the times of like aggression, aggression. So yes, they
during the main welcome, but when they need our support, you must be ready to Yeah, absolutely.
Yeah. But, you know, I just, I just want to bring it back to this. Because we like, you know, we go in deeper into the discussion that we started with, but it's all just comes back to that I have the Quran that that Pharaonic tendency
to make it seem as if the oppressor is the good guy and must never fall for all
All of what you guys are talking about now sort of ties into the last piece that was decided.
Allah says that in the line of Allah, in the those that say and that believe that Allah is Allah. So they believe in this overarching being that will bring about justice and fairness, to muster camo and then they are
regular and consistent and they, they, they are steadfast in in what they have to do. So I mean, you're speaking about you know, we need to constantly keep the finger on the button, keep us keep ourselves updated in terms of our knowledge, what is happening, keep speaking about it and so forth and so on. The you know what to give for that and the angels that and I said why the human melodica the angels will come to the meta time of the death telling them a lot the hoffa has no I'm Shubin, Jana, don't fear Don't be sad. Take glad tidings of agenda that you had been promised. And the verses go on speaking about what they will receive as a reward. And then Allah says again, and yes,
perhaps a very important action point for all of us, is that Allah says woman, so Nicola may manda in Allah, Who is the better in speech than the one that goes to Allah while I'm in Australia, and he does a good action, or call the in the knee Milan muslimeen. And he says it openly and and without hesitation and without fear of reproach that I am of the Muslims, I am of those who submit, yes, there might be a time that we won't see it with our words, in as many words. But of course, we're going to say it with our action and the way that we behave and the way that we carry ourselves. Allah goes on and speaks about either Fabien lady accent or other first, while others that will have
Santa do what I say yeah, good and evil can never ever be the same. The exact same action can never be done. If it is done for good. And if it's done for evil, it might seem like it's the same action, but it's totally different because one is for good and one is bad. So it can't it will be the same you know, this, the action and this intent that lies behind the action as well. So in the fabula, he acts and do that which is best and how do you stop yourself from getting depressed by these things? Like I know, I know the answer.
But my question is not in terms of the theory a Christian is in terms of the practice the reality How do you we don't we don't read the Quran enough for just for that
that nice Lexus for the new writer.
I know you're not seeing me but that you absolutely right. That's a practical way to get to the theory I just read like if you just read this juice at the end of the day, you'll be replaced but I think like obviously this clinical depression and things don't make life better but you will gain a resilience right that you know what I'm not doing just because because I think I can change the world allows me to do and you know what? I was in control of everything. And but I just wanted I don't want to divert on the velocity measurement to versus in all industries.
Actually, there was another one I squatted remember which one it was? No, but it fabulet here Asan
right. Rebel? Was that which is this was that which is best? Right. Oh, better. And the verse
cool Yeah. I by the alladhina sort of water and food him. Later Cano Toma Rahmatullah. In the lie of yoruba Jamia in the law.
For Rahim, Allah Subhan, Allah says that,
Oh, my slaves,
those who have wronged against themselves, do not lose hope in the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, he is the most forgiving, Most Merciful.
Now, we usually we address this topic a lot, the discussion of tobuy etc. And, and we speak about it, you know, for the one that is on his own, and he denies this era and stuff like that. But this is a discussion that I've been having, often with, with my good friend and brother Amala, Dr. Yusuf Patel is one that centers around canceled culture, and it ties in as well to, you know, our doings in the wake of the Palestinian struggle that, you know, when people do something, yeah, kancil culture the idea of, you know, when somebody does something wrong,
we call them out for it is generally wrong. It's like more specific, it's wrong in the sense of like, gender justice, or maybe like,
sexual assault, or child molestation, things like that, or any so any social justice. Yeah.
We must. The first thing we have to do is when a person does something wrong, like we have to recognize the restaurant, there has to be consequences for the action. We have to take them to task
There's also a responsibility on us,
you know, and a desire from us greater than the desire for retribution. And for punishment, we have a greater desire for reform.
As it as, as beings who manifest the, you know, the divine way, who has marriage of the divine light in as well as Allah forgives, we should also be willing to forgive. Yeah, you can, you can actually look at examples of like, Islamic cancer kancil culture, in like the incident of surah, Toba, the several buzu Not this one is all
holy for that second example of canceled culture, that's actually a very long hurry that comes in, we had to saw the theme. One of them speak about what they had to go through, actually, until before the turbo was accepted. But that mean that there's all the elements that are speaking about that, of them wanting to reform the idea of society, creating that environment for them. And then, you know, they talk about coming, they often allow accepting data, and they begin integrating, that's actually coming into my in the form of my mind, because we had the discussions around like, when we, when we call out certain people for the support for Israel, etc, all of those things. And we know sometimes
it can be like aggravating because the medicine issues closed out. For us. It's like, so clear, how on earth do you support this operation? It's like, so, so good as to the guy who started.
Notice there's only two people like the bad guy. So it can be so aggravating, but we shouldn't allow anger to overtake us.
That we lose, like, anger is the full reason for assertion. And for for maintaining order. But then there's also the element of forgiveness. So if the person does something wrong, yes, our anger Muskegon, we must, you must take him to task. But if they become
if they if they become sorry, and regretful of what they did, and they show a willingness to learn, like you get some people that, you know, they'll put out the statement, but to actually remain obstinate.
Our initial reaction shouldn't be to think that the person is remaining obstinate, we should like for a moment, give them the benefit of the doubt, and try to actually engage them and show them a better way. And speak to them and educate them. Because there's a lot of misinformation in the world, and educate them. And,
and, you know, oftentimes, it's those people that once upon a time saw the world and, you know, saw things in the most wrong way, and the most incorrect way that when they see the light, they become, you know, the greatest ambassadors.
And so, we shouldn't just fall prey to the culture of canceling people because it's a popular culture today.
Yes, we should be assertive, yes, we should take people to dos. But when they show a willingness to change in the reform, we should try and capitalize on that our impetus to capitalize on that must be greater than our than our impetus for punishment. Okay, in practice no math, but like somebody was saying interestingly like Islam will give you like a capital punishment man. And then God is your arm going easy. Oh, I mean, your your hand or your foot or whatever the case may be, but then it's done. You can carry on in your life. Yeah, doing amantha member doesn't mean not in this vs. But I mean, yeah, in the life I mean, from on top, I mean, body loony was left for in the Leia do body now
whatever turns to Allah after having committed a sin. And in the reforms itself, Allah turns back to that person in the love of
the modern world would like to care for life and new life. So let's give you that guy, you know? Yeah. Like
one of the one of the one Remember, you know, the most prominent examples of it. Imagine if, on account of O'Meara, Dylan's desire to oppose Rasulullah saw an account of Amara de Alon slapping his sister, on account of all of those things. He had to be cancelled you. There's no room for you. You're not welcome here. hedgy what do you what would we have been like, deprived of?
Okay, brothers are talking about what would we have been deprived of? You're almost out of time. I just want to, I just want to say something they don't usually do. None of us usually do this, but specifically just for everyone to keep monana Taha Karen in your eyes now. I think most people watching this will probably know him as mosquito hacker and I can do the MTC and so forth. We don't quite know him. Mosquito hacker on in the sense of like this official position. We know Him as our teacher. And I think it's very important that everyone today understands also, that much of the things you see of Islamic activity that's around including
Every single thing that the three of us if we do know I think most scholars that they know in Capetown Yeah, I was gonna get to that. Can you wait
most is the three of us Islamic institutions in not only Capetown but throughout South Africa actually
have been affected either directly or indirectly from onana. Things like dharana EME and all of its affiliates. Yeah, the list will go on man like, isn't the isn't an A major activity or movement of higher, you know, in Islam that I can think of locally that he wasn't involved in?
Especially Yeah, especially. And not just knowledge. Now, I'm looking at my lexicon, the reason why you don't see manjunatha on public platforms in his mind depredation besides his own choices, and so on.
He's the one who teaches the professors, he's the one who teaches the lecturer is he's the one who teaches the teachers, he's going to find him teaching the stuff that we teach, he can, because he talks to us, but he is busy doing the type of research that the Omanis that we have no answers for in the books that he's coming up with, like literally all the time, and not just find out about basic things, I'm talking about brand new things that come up all the time, they can see you, you know,
like things like Mama, the list goes on, man. And I know that I won't be able to do justice in terms of explaining the value.
When when the oma is in a crisis with other Iraq, you know, other groups and sects and so forth.
is the one person that they will position. Yeah, all the time. And
yeah, the list goes on. I know, I know. I oftentimes, like, sit with people. And you know, we speak about
I know what you're gonna say, and as we all suffer from the same dial in and that was my teacher, right, so. So people may think, that unaccountable being my teacher.
I'm exaggerating. But I've set with more than, like a humble, I think, in this way, I'm a little bit privileged, that I have set with marginata.
Sitting with some of the foremost scholars in the world now, like
I've said in the company of mulatto, when he was having a discussion with hachimura, I said in the company of mulatto, when he was having discussion with shift yesterday, I sat in the company of like, when he was having discussions with like, people who, who are super liabilities, but it was maybe in a discreet location, we're sitting at the grammar waiver,
discussing the history of the grammar at the end, and not just that, but like, not just that when discussing the deepest issues, right, and the most nuanced issues in Islamic thought Islamic history, whatever the subject may be. And I can tell you, we don't like I actually don't have the words to convey to people. Yeah, what it is that we have, like hiding away. Yeah. And, and it's not just a matter of Islamic knowledge. And I like, well, I love him, he goes to a banking conference, and then he will resolve things that have nothing to do with currency, nothing to do with Islam, but it's not an Islamic topic, per se. And then he will explain the concept and then the bankers will
understand, or you will speak about in class, just randomly use an example with quantum physics, or farming or agriculture, and poetry. And I know this is gonna sound weird for most people, you can realize she had deja vu going on, but Well, I we were received. Yeah. And we love them all. We love them all. Yeah. But in terms of in terms of Islamic thought, and valued leadership and value, like,
Is it done? Yeah.
Okay, so the reason I was saying so is the session acid of the oma, that includes you, if you're watching this, I guarantee you, it includes you, right.
So please do make do if one is doing well. hamdulillah Yeah, I just need to say that he's doing well, I got a report from doc while we were on this live thing.
So don't we're not saying this to alarm you. But I want to implore that. This is not just our teacher, this is an asset to the oma around the world. Whether you will agree with him don't agree with him. If you like him, you don't like him with you? Doesn't matter. The reality is still the reality. Would you rather have a world I'm speaking to those who don't like him? Would you rather have a will be doesn't exist. Just think about that for a second? You know, so please make the ladies go into full health. I think oftentimes people elsewhere in the world.
They lack they have a greater appreciation for or characterization of melamine like I actually just saw some guys
Somebody from Canada yeah prominent guy in Canada posted about people requesting people to make the offer well as
we know, the one guy's shop sidiki one comes out okay
the guys from seekers now global all requesting that you know, that people like to offer more than like we just want to see more healthy and busy with these easily busy writing as we speak that is busy writing books. You mentioned to us some of them I forgot I forgot what they were all but every I mean look at this 4040 I had eaten and contagion pandemics, how much guidance he came with in a time when we were also looking for answers and even you know even like this spirit of like, of every no no no like barriers to him.
A lot of us got through him like you know we wouldn't be sitting here joking and what even Yeah, you will never when you see him in any speaks you won't think it like in public. But was as is when the first time he came to dominate him there was like a thing. So I mean, look at my hours like nervousness.
And now when I think back to this, like how could you be nervous?
remember the first time that I made money like you already knew my name, and he was very Yeah, he told me I wasn't mean when I got this time and he told me this and the second time I'm eating Are you a Chad? Like, oh my god. What do you mean he's like, because I was asking I was asking something that's monetized still teach and stuff like that man. When he says are you the one asking if I'm going to teach? And then I said yes, well, I'm thinking what is he gonna say? So he says okay, if you give me a slavery I'll teach
So anyway, the point is please please please I implore you know that you're not just making it up because we asked you if it was a teacher because he's an asset to the oma and we need to see him back at full health courses or teach him we love him. Yeah, but I mean, I don't want people to think that the only reason and I'm gonna make the X is this guy's teach people must also know because they don't I mean, he's and this is on purpose and I'm Allah doesn't like the spotlight man. He only takes the spotlight when he must when he feels that is a need. I was very fortunate to be cinetic gave me the first couple of programs was I couldn't believe it. I was lacking what on earth did I do
to get mulata as my as my watch McCauley?
Yes, it does add up anyway. So that's the only time you've seen and that's not these feel like that's a simple issue of it, like the fat on vaccines, and it's simple stuff. The stuff we do needs to be busy with stuff that the general public wouldn't really be able to relate to me because it's cutting edge. things they just get the final result the yay or nay Hello haraam you know that type of thing. But anyway, Macduff. Like, I think if you want to get an A preach, if anybody was getting appreciation from Allah, they must speak to like an unbiased scholar that they think is the most learned.
And then the most awesome bet that actually makes me laugh. Like really? Because
a lot of people do this man. They've got like, my favorite color. And I think somebody really learned and I agree that person is really learned. But it's it's weird, how disparate the levels of crazy Thank you like my last seat in his last meeting with us. He still said, I know you guys think that you will, that you won't be able to supersede me. I burst out laughing
I wasn't mute. And I burst out laughing because for as long as I know monona he's been like about 150 times more learned than any other person that I know. And yet is the most studious select I've never made anyone who reads more than he does and studies more than he does and does research more than he does.
So you've got because if you're going to start today, when you get to 20 years time then in 20 years time you would have done a reading 50 times more than what you never started you know with with collectivity like all of our all of our students together Yeah. Maybe we can know maybe maybe one maybe maybe in one subject you You sound similar. Yeah, so like like in film you can design simulate everything if everybody maintains a unity of working together Yeah, we can continue enough and but with us and inshallah mala is going to stay with us for a very very very, I mean, I mean, I mean, it was good health and increased zeal and I mean for me, so yes, please No, we'll get to
now I've got a bit odd when you said like a mate that led to begin
when he made that leap
I know it I just think it was nearly like he was just like Well, I'm gonna I'm gonna end up with the I'm on an asylum is going to make dua for people of Palestine, for our our teacher and your teacher. moniteau Hi, Karen. And all of those who are experiencing you will help and please people be safe.
