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

To cinnamon, say, Melina

00:00:09--> 00:00:09

Allah,

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

Allah illallah wa, the who lives

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

under Mohammed Abdullah, who will soon.

00:00:26--> 00:00:26

Today,

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

we're beginning the

00:00:30--> 00:00:31

third day

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

of this conference.

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

And this morning,

00:00:38--> 00:00:39

as some of you

00:00:40--> 00:00:47

all of you should have a new schedule that indicates our first lecture for today would be

00:00:48--> 00:00:48

that

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

whether Jason jamala, Dean zarabozo and the subject of the Western conspiracy against Muslim women,

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

change,

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

new challenges and conspiracy.

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

So inshallah,

00:01:12--> 00:01:12

we hope that

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

we can gain much benefit from this.

00:01:18--> 00:01:23

And please take note also of any other scheduled changes, and

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

lecture changes for the day.

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

With that, will turn over the microphone to our brother

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

in janati examples

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

under the left

00:01:49--> 00:01:49

corner,

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

now we'll be learning

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

are shadow one.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

This lecture actually

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

found the original schedule and actually a lecture

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

for women, for men

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

with the agenda

00:02:58--> 00:03:02

you met in Gavin's room shall have benefits.

00:03:03--> 00:03:07

Somehow, we hope also from the, from the lecture,

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

the lecture titled

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

COVID-19

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

Muslim women challenges and conspiracy.

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

And basically what I like to talk about

00:03:24--> 00:03:30

some of the hardships or some of the challenges that our Muslim women face.

00:03:33--> 00:03:38

And some of the movements that have begun

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

to try to change the Muslim woman from

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

that idea that Islam wants for her

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

two completely different sort of a person.

00:03:55--> 00:04:01

So, I would like to discuss a topic that has come up many times when I lectured to women.

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

And that is

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

the concept of challenge.

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

And the grandmother, did we

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

obstacles,

00:04:21--> 00:04:25

faced hardships, and how we should respond

00:04:26--> 00:04:30

to those hardships. I'd like to begin first of all by saying that

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

so people must understand the concept of Islam as being an easy religion.

00:04:41--> 00:04:41

The way

00:04:42--> 00:04:46

in which Allah subhanaw taala says, For example,

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

beginning with hope,

00:04:49--> 00:04:54

that I must have heard that I have not created any hardship for your religion.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

And somehow the voice in which I listened to the people

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

All

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

these

00:05:07--> 00:05:08

verses in the Koran

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

the obligations that are less than handle $1 has given us in the [???]tier

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

thing that I

00:05:23--> 00:05:23

like the

00:05:25--> 00:05:32

best in the month of Ramadan is that in general effect these things are not hardships

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

finding

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

the capability of the individual to perform and to do everything

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

and

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

not burning burning

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

desire

00:05:52--> 00:05:55

to not actually burden us with anything

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

that is beyond our capability.

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

But these verses do not mean

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

they will not be challenges

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

or will not rise

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

in the deal

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

with Allah subhanho wa Taala will not put us

00:06:23--> 00:06:26

that is all aspects of the deal

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

with Allah subhana wa tada

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

we show our

00:06:39--> 00:06:42

data bar and by our response to these challenges

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

without

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

a hassle

00:06:56--> 00:07:01

people think that they'll be left alone simply by saying we believe in them not been tested.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

Now that is going to take this

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

is going to put us through situations

00:07:13--> 00:07:18

where we have to show our loyal to our loyalty to Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

will have to show our willingness to sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhana wa

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

Hello data

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

test us through the different means to

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

test this

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

example by putting us through

00:07:45--> 00:07:47

what we could call times of hardship

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

without you are lacking

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

and our material means

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

a lesson one data resistance and then we're in the same way that I let them handle a data test this

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

generation of Muslims

00:08:11--> 00:08:19

in order for us to show our image and our faith and all this data in order for our deeds to be approved first on the dam gentlemen

00:08:20--> 00:08:28

that Allah subhana wa tada for us do these things in we show by our deeds we show by our deeds are to paint and I was a panel dad and I believe in him.

00:08:30--> 00:08:31

And I really miss Tobin

00:08:33--> 00:08:36

brothers, man, oh god, it doesn't simply cut this

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

returns a hardship.

00:08:41--> 00:08:41

But also

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

just the times of ease and pleasure

00:08:47--> 00:08:52

and how to handle it that it gives us lots of things gives us everything that we need in this union.

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

This is all

00:08:56--> 00:09:02

data to make sure that we use these things in the way that I wasn't handling data

00:09:04--> 00:09:05

as ordered us use them.

00:09:07--> 00:09:12

In fact, many of the automatic said the test of ease is much more difficult than the test to heart You

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

can't do much. You have to be patient. There's not much you can do many things.

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

For example, if you

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

know what you can do, be patient

00:09:36--> 00:09:42

opens the doors do for many things. If you want to buy something, if you want to do something, if you want to spend your time.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

You have the chance

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

guy to test us

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

and drive us through the commands and the obligations and

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

provisions of the Sharia

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

law that commands us to do something

00:10:10--> 00:10:17

without a provision to do something, all of this is a kind of trial, or if that

00:10:18--> 00:10:24

was actually no correct English translation for the term for that. But all of it is the kind of

00:10:26--> 00:10:51

data for us to show that when we claim to be believers, we can prove it by iTunes. And I did that when we made the list of our data. We will not take one lesson. Have you told me to do this, I would have done it had you commanded me to do this, I would have done it. But in fact, the lesson handling data gave us the commands within our ability to perform those commands. And it

00:10:52--> 00:10:56

will be a free lesson for our army men on the agenda.

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

And what are those obligations?

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

What are those obligations is the willingness

00:11:08--> 00:11:11

to sacrifice for the sake of others and Hannah with dad.

00:11:14--> 00:11:23

It's part of our DNA that we should be willing to sacrifice for the sake of others. And with that, if God commands us to do something,

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

and that

00:11:28--> 00:11:34

is difficult than the early sensor requires some effort on our part than we still are required to do it.

00:11:37--> 00:11:48

effort and sacrifice is not the same thing in the case of resistente. That was, the case of necessity is the exceptional case where you absolutely cannot perform what it is you're asked to perform

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

without a great deal of harm.

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

without losing one of the necessities that

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

seeks to preserve.

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

But sacrifice.

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

Sacrifice is an essential aspect of this deal.

00:12:08--> 00:12:15

Last Battle of data for example, the man, the believers, the big man to go visit or to attend the mosque,

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

for Salah

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

that takes some sacrifice on their part.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

When Allah subhana wa tada commanded the believer women

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

to dress for example, especially in this society to wear hijab and to behave islamically

00:12:32--> 00:12:38

then they have to be willing to sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhana wa sallam to perform that.

00:12:41--> 00:12:42

And perhaps the greatest.

00:12:46--> 00:12:57

The good example of one of the greatest example we can see that and because of the sacrifices how, when we are tempted by Allah subhana wa tada when we meet the challenge

00:12:59--> 00:13:04

in this world where we face the onslaught that Muslims are facing today,

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

at the same

00:13:10--> 00:13:15

time described, in which those people who are sticking to the deen and sticking to the web,

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

there are the word of Allah.

00:13:21--> 00:13:26

They are the ones who are very few in number. They're the ones who are considered different.

00:13:31--> 00:13:45

And it is during this time, especially when we have to meet lots of new challenges. And even then spirit is against Islam that we must remember that sacrificing for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada and being willing to sacrifice with equality

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

is an essential aspect of this religion.

00:13:51--> 00:13:59

This religion is an easy religion and therefore, if we face some hardship and means we don't have to face it, and we look for some excuse and some look

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

in the books

00:14:05--> 00:14:17

now, instead of the opposite, we have to realize that our lesson and without is giving us these challenges on purpose, and we have to respond to them in the proper way. Then they said to

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

the companions of the Hamlet,

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

from Medina,

00:14:32--> 00:14:39

they opened the doors to the Muslims, the immigrants from Mecca, and they sacrifice their lives.

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

For the sake of Islam.

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

They sacrifice their time to sacrifice their property.

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

And after Mecca after Mecca was conquered.

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

Some of them said to themselves that we have

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

sacrificed a lot during these times when now

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

A strong

00:15:03--> 00:15:08

and we have sacrificed our business and our farms now let us go back to our business and our farm

00:15:09--> 00:15:23

and take care of them another tip it came to their mind is dad sacrifice and now it's time to relax and you don't have to sacrifice with that when all lesson handling data reveal a verse which is

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

quite often misunderstood and misquoted,

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

which I love to handle without and then one before we sit

00:15:37--> 00:15:46

down, spend in the realm of love, and do not destroy yourself or catch yourself through ruin, by your own hand.

00:15:47--> 00:15:53

The meaning of this verse, as a way of playing that it will reveal concerning now

00:15:54--> 00:16:05

is that when you stop sacrificing, when you stop giving for the sake of Allah subhanho data when you stop the Jihad and the thing for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala you're actually destroying yourself.

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

by your own hand.

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

You're actually by your own geese. by your own lack of sacrifice, you're actually leading yourself to the punishment

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

aspect is that we must realize

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

that it is part of the deen

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

they were willing to sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada

00:16:35--> 00:16:41

and this is perfectly consistent with the fact that Allah subhana wa tada has given us no hardship,

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

in this

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

union in this world.

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

We must be very careful about the way that we worship Allah.

00:16:57--> 00:17:03

as true believers, we must be careful that we do not worship Allah Subhana Allah data

00:17:05--> 00:17:06

and fulfill the deen

00:17:07--> 00:17:13

and popular fulfill His commands only when it is easy for us only when we like it and so on.

00:17:17--> 00:17:22

Some people unfortunately if Islam is they get some advantage from following them.

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

They get some better performance.

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

But as soon as there's anything difficult

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

for them and it's never

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

bothered

00:17:36--> 00:17:41

by anything in Islam, then they leave Islam or they act like they're about to leave Islam.

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala described the situation very

00:17:47--> 00:17:51

clearly in the Koran, when Allah subhana wa and that is his woman and

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

there are some people who worship Allah subhana wa tada as if they're on an edge

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

comes to them,

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

then they're very happy with the deal.

00:18:11--> 00:18:15

But if they are tested with any kind of fitna any kind of trial in the deen

00:18:17--> 00:18:22

then they turn away and they lose both this leg and the Europe.

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

And that is the greatest loss.

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

So we talk about challenges.

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

Things that we're going to have to face and

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

we have to remember

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

the facing challenges,

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

willingness to sacrifice for the sake of others,

00:18:50--> 00:18:55

willingness to do anything that is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. This is

00:18:56--> 00:19:04

Dean, back. This is a necessary aspect of the theme. And this is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the believers.

00:19:06--> 00:19:12

That when any challenge comes to them, they don't submit to that challenge. They don't look for any excuse not to face the downs.

00:19:15--> 00:19:28

But it's been realized that this is the challenge from Allah subhana wa Tada, Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see what is going to be their response. How are they going to act for the sake of others?

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

If we have the right or we have the two mm interface

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

and we have the correct notes, to understand what is happening this dunion what data wants from us.

00:19:49--> 00:19:54

And we have the pain or the certainty that we're going to meet with data

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

and that all of us are headed with data within

00:20:02--> 00:20:07

Then, when you have those things, then it becomes very easy

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

to spend the whole night just talking about the food challenges and so on. So

00:20:22--> 00:20:31

as I said earlier, this is by the way, mostly or was intended to be electric just for the room for our sisters.

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

If we don't get some of the challenges,

00:20:37--> 00:20:43

some of the difficulties some of the spirit is actually we can even say, facing the Muslim women of today.

00:20:46--> 00:20:46

We see her

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

basically comes from two sources.

00:20:53--> 00:20:56

And I want to stress the second source.

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

But the more we talk first about the

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

source of the the external challenges,

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

there is challenges that are coming from the

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

coming from people outside of the realm of Islam.

00:21:17--> 00:21:19

What I want to talk about first,

00:21:21--> 00:21:22

on a general scale,

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

in many places on the planet, I don't have to be with them until I these are all very clear

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

to everyone that

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

there will never be pleased with Islam,

00:21:37--> 00:21:40

that they have in their hearts, the hatred for Islam.

00:21:42--> 00:21:44

And years ago, many years ago,

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

when they dominated most of the Muslim world,

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

and included dominated

00:21:56--> 00:21:59

and when there is actually there, really one of the Muslim world.

00:22:01--> 00:22:09

They realize they clearly realize the world and the importance of the Muslim woman for the Islamic Society.

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

What is her situation and what is

00:22:17--> 00:22:19

keeping the society pure,

00:22:20--> 00:22:25

and helping the society obey Allah subhana wa Tada. And what is the role

00:22:27--> 00:22:31

in bringing up the next generation as a pious Muslim generation.

00:22:33--> 00:22:37

So from the beginning until now, and we still see now in many, many cases,

00:22:39--> 00:22:45

one of the basic goals of the provider of the disbelievers when they entered into the muscle mass was to corrupt

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

the Muslim woman

00:22:48--> 00:22:50

and to try to take her out

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

of the deen of Islam,

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

not by name,

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

necessarily not converted to Christianity

00:23:01--> 00:23:12

by making herself that she is a Muslim woman in the sense that her name is Islamic name, maybe she passed the phrase, but everything else about it had nothing to do with Islam.

00:23:14--> 00:23:23

And of course, they did that through different means. And we'll discuss some of them inshallah, showed me when I discussed one particular book.

00:23:24--> 00:23:32

They basically they open up the concept of the idea of the of the liberation, women's liberation,

00:23:33--> 00:23:37

women's liberation as the terms are reserved in the Muslim land, from the cathar.

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

time before it was, even in America,

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

they were talking about the liberation of women.

00:23:46--> 00:23:58

And basically what it was the goal was to bring the woman out of his job to bring her out of the house and driver mix with men and as was said, and he was read through the Muslim land.

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

Many of our sisters here

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

in the United States, also the challenge,

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

and the threat from the war many times comes from

00:24:15--> 00:24:20

family, relatives, and friends who are who are not stupid, they're not Muslim.

00:24:23--> 00:24:27

And this is, in many cases, a much more difficult than

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

someone you grew up with.

00:24:34--> 00:24:43

Someone who you had such a good relationship with, for example, that your mother, let's say, all of your life now, you will become Muslim.

00:24:44--> 00:24:49

And she is rejecting Islam and she doesn't want you to be Muslim and she doesn't want you to behave like a Muslim.

00:24:52--> 00:24:56

This is a very difficult test that I was ahead without giving too many

00:24:58--> 00:24:58

of our believers

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Don't think they're meant to read

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

their mother in law he doesn't want to be seen with

00:25:17--> 00:25:23

the woman is wearing a job and she doesn't want to mess with men. And a mother has friends over, she doesn't want

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

to sit with men and people should not listen to a song.

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

And this is coming

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

to you.

00:25:39--> 00:25:42

It is, in fact, a very new contest

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

is a very difficult time.

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

Remember,

00:25:54--> 00:25:59

clearly that forever, whatever our mothers did for us throughout our whole life, whatever I

00:26:00--> 00:26:07

did for us, throughout the whole lives, it cannot compare anything to what God has done for us.

00:26:08--> 00:26:16

By grading us by bringing us into this world, by giving us the material needs that we have in this world. And by guiding us through Islam,

00:26:17--> 00:26:21

that much greater than anything that any of these are anything

00:26:23--> 00:26:23

I've ever done.

00:26:25--> 00:26:34

And whether or not all of our data, and voisine must be greater than or low for anyone. And whether that was the Mona

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

especially,

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

especially if they're rejecting the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala, we must put the

00:26:44--> 00:26:49

data much above our respect our religions towards them.

00:26:50--> 00:26:56

And we have many examples of that nature among among themselves.

00:26:58--> 00:27:03

If you want to take a good example about this, and see what kind of hardship

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

that is putting you through on how to

00:27:08--> 00:27:14

face that hardship, then go to the case, go to the situation of the Sahaba and see how many times

00:27:16--> 00:27:24

because of a man, because of their faith, they had to be opposed to their fathers to their sisters to the most.

00:27:29--> 00:27:33

Even in battle, they're willing to fight each other and kill one another.

00:27:36--> 00:27:36

Depends on

00:27:39--> 00:27:41

the this kind of test.

00:27:44--> 00:27:49

Not only, by the way, just for us Muslims, converted to Islam.

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

But many times those brothers who came from overseas, they face the same kind of thing.

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

For example, that wasn't very religious.

00:28:05--> 00:28:19

Maybe the wife, for example, didn't use the right job and needs to mix with men and women so on, they have dancing and music or whatever. And then they come to this country. And they change their ways and all that somehow without them. And then

00:28:22--> 00:28:27

when they go back home, usually the first and the strongest enemy that they have the one that opposes them the most.

00:28:31--> 00:28:43

Oh used to do this, and this without the now just because you've been doing that just because you become surprised you don't do that anymore. And they put pressure on them. They performed on them till they have to choose between their family.

00:28:45--> 00:28:51

And unfortunately, many of them do not make the right choice in the same way that many Americans

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

whether the system does not make the right choice

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

comes before anyone.

00:29:01--> 00:29:11

And then let's be very clear in your mind and in your hearts. When you embrace Islam. From this time, it should be good if you really understand

00:29:12--> 00:29:13

the meaning of

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

the perhaps a much more difficult test

00:29:19--> 00:29:22

in that sense, because it's much more deceiving.

00:29:24--> 00:29:27

The tests and the trials and the conspiracy that is coming from

00:29:28--> 00:29:32

Muslim individuals and Muslim groups themselves.

00:29:35--> 00:29:38

Those are those who come to us as Muslims,

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

as for example, our sisters in Islam

00:29:44--> 00:29:47

and they're actually taking us away from Islam that can attest.

00:29:49--> 00:29:54

It's never difficult because oftentimes much more much harder to spot

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

and this is one of the reasons why I love data.

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

stretches and discusses so much that we're not hypocrites.

00:30:05--> 00:30:06

And we were on

00:30:09--> 00:30:13

our data clearly shows us the behavior of the hypocrites,

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

their action and what they're doing to them.

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

Because the danger of their internal source, that internal enemy can be much, much greater than the external enemy

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

is when propaganda sisters,

00:30:36--> 00:30:42

and other Muslim women come to her and read your work, or tell her that she shouldn't be

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

supposed to be your own scissors.

00:30:48--> 00:30:52

This is a much more difficult task than anything else. You could have met

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

in Islam and their themselves are appointed.

00:30:59--> 00:31:06

As the opposition comes from the provider, you can understand that they are against Islam, that these people are

00:31:08--> 00:31:19

supposed to be your sisters and their support the level of metadata and love the truth. And they're the ones who are putting pressure to change this over

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

this challenge.

00:31:26--> 00:31:27

This hardship

00:31:28--> 00:31:33

is very difficult, especially if it comes from someone who seems very nice.

00:31:34--> 00:31:35

very sincere.

00:31:36--> 00:31:41

Always has nice words, always invite you over always gives you

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

tea, coffee nice.

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

And you

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

must demand she seems because

00:31:54--> 00:31:59

she's always so nice to me. And she's advising me that perhaps I'm too strict. And

00:32:01--> 00:32:06

she's about Demeter. Because the way I'm dressed economic bow, maybe I'm harming Islam

00:32:08--> 00:32:16

has no reason to be so hard that they can go out more I can work nothing wrong with that, and mix with men and no reason for the separation and so on.

00:32:18--> 00:32:20

This when it comes from someone

00:32:21--> 00:32:25

you look at as a Muslim, and she says to be sincere.

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

This is a difficult thing.

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

But just remember that

00:32:32--> 00:32:35

this is what he said, I am your sincere

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

I listen to it right.

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

This is one

00:32:50--> 00:32:52

that person not a lot

00:32:54--> 00:32:58

when that person comes to you, and have you been supportive what you think

00:33:03--> 00:33:04

all

00:33:05--> 00:33:05

started with

00:33:07--> 00:33:07

the first time.

00:33:11--> 00:33:20

So now you not only have a Muslim sister, supposed to be a sister and his mom was very nice. And so now she's even calling the parotid howdy

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

to try to take you away from your practice of Islam.

00:33:28--> 00:33:38

This is very difficult if you don't have that Eman, that faith, strong faith and you don't have the knowledge to refer to. This can be very difficult

00:33:39--> 00:33:40

indeed.

00:33:41--> 00:33:51

For Muslim woman, especially if for example, you're not married. But she doesn't have some square sisters close to her, who can help her who can show

00:33:52--> 00:33:54

what they're actually trying to do to her and so on.

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

This tend to be

00:34:03--> 00:34:03

very hard

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

indeed

00:34:08--> 00:34:10

what what I like to do

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

best for the remainder

00:34:16--> 00:34:18

of this, this lecture

00:34:21--> 00:34:23

to discuss in particular

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

some examples of what we think especially in the United States

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

of nature of

00:34:35--> 00:34:44

people, whether they are organized groups or individuals and so on, are really presenting a challenge to our sisters who are trying to stick to the

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

theme

00:34:47--> 00:34:54

by trying for example, to present arguments and so on. Unfortunately, here in the United States, we have organizations,

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

organizations that are partly dedicated to

00:35:01--> 00:35:06

This concept of changing the rule or changing the situation of the Muslim woman in Islam.

00:35:09--> 00:35:12

Now organizations in the United States are Muslim.

00:35:14--> 00:35:23

And one of the one of the, one of their priorities is to change the rules, and the situation of woman and then

00:35:28--> 00:35:29

also individually.

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

And as I said, sometimes it can be very

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

confusing.

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

Going to give, maybe just to

00:35:43--> 00:35:44

permit us to

00:35:46--> 00:35:48

go into too much detail.

00:35:49--> 00:35:51

And I have no idea how much time

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

30 more minutes.

00:35:59--> 00:36:03

I actually don't like to give lectures and I try to finish as soon as possible. So if you could

00:36:07--> 00:36:10

have 1015 more minutes, I'm dying here just to finish.

00:36:15--> 00:36:18

I like to take one example, one example.

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

This is a book published by American trust, but

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

I will not go to another extreme

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

moment, the writings of severely

00:36:35--> 00:36:44

beyond I think most intelligent people will not be fooled by the team, with you read. The form of this book, in particular, why I picked it up

00:36:47--> 00:36:51

is that this is a book published by American trust publication, which is owned by

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

an a body of Islamic Society of North America.

00:36:58--> 00:37:02

And unfortunately, and of course, not my purpose here

00:37:03--> 00:37:05

in North America is known but unfortunately,

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

and many times, especially when it's

00:37:09--> 00:37:18

overseas to get some peppers they present themselves as, as the basic organization of the basic Jamaat Muslims in the United States.

00:37:19--> 00:37:21

Well, that's the case, then they should,

00:37:23--> 00:37:34

then they should present and stand up for the tourists them and not publish, and not have speeches, and not have organizations and not have

00:37:35--> 00:37:43

conference and so on that, in fact, are working against, especially with respect to the situation of Muslim women, the true the true Islam.

00:37:45--> 00:37:47

This book rolling by,

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

and I didn't even write the name of the book down anywhere here

00:37:53--> 00:37:54

is my wife.

00:37:55--> 00:37:56

I think it's called

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

now

00:38:01--> 00:38:02

I think it's now

00:38:03--> 00:38:06

women and Muslim society or something, something of that nature.

00:38:09--> 00:38:13

I just like to read through some of the quotes in that book.

00:38:15--> 00:38:25

To see what are some of the some of the things that Muslim women are going to be really coming across if you see a book with that name, and your Muslim woman says, Oh, my goodness.

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

these are these are examples that are

00:38:35--> 00:38:40

representative of some of the more intellectually or academic

00:38:42--> 00:38:44

in fact on the list and woman to try to change

00:38:45--> 00:38:46

the situation of the Muslim woman

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

to get

00:38:55--> 00:38:56

to give one example.

00:39:00--> 00:39:07

She says, The Quran specifically called for equal rights for men and women in divorce.

00:39:14--> 00:39:16

A general verse it had nothing to do with what you're saying.

00:39:19--> 00:39:25

Everyone is familiar with the practice of Islam with respect

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

to

00:39:29--> 00:39:34

how diverse and how a woman gets a divorce and is completely different.

00:39:35--> 00:39:40

She said that the Quran specifically called for equal rights for men and women in divorce.

00:39:42--> 00:39:48

Any of you have seen any Heidi or anyone ever say, they can make

00:39:53--> 00:39:56

let us apply they have equal rights in the world

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

and the situation effect is

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

in

00:40:02--> 00:40:06

the way of the worse for men, women and

00:40:08--> 00:40:19

men, she tried to prove that some of them early woman in his lab, they were known for fashion and beauty and literature. He talks about the daughter who sent him an ID.

00:40:21--> 00:40:32

So again, very famous in the history, she said she was a leader in fashion, beauty literature for salons and intellectual parties. were famous in the entire Muslim world at that time.

00:40:34--> 00:40:36

And this is nothing but a blatant lie.

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

You read the rules of history, the books, the history,

00:40:43--> 00:40:44

books like me and others

00:40:46--> 00:40:46

that have

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

the mind that you are the devout Muslim

00:40:55--> 00:40:56

man quantities,

00:40:57--> 00:41:03

and value among other things. And another argument that you hear often

00:41:05--> 00:41:08

these women of early Islam are not there.

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

She writes, they were enjoyed by them.

00:41:18--> 00:41:22

But they were never told lies of segregation. And isolation

00:41:30--> 00:41:33

says that the current debate

00:41:34--> 00:41:37

is not obligatory, with a Muslim woman.

00:41:41--> 00:41:47

That is great or not, but everything that he says in business one day, and he brings many examples of authentic

00:41:48--> 00:41:50

women during the cyber department.

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

And they continue to do so.

00:41:56--> 00:42:08

But now, it has become very common. And you hear this in many conferences, and many speeches throughout the United States that any Muslim woman will not.

00:42:09--> 00:42:16

And this is something that the Muslims picked up on the Byzantine versions later. And that you mentioned the same thing.

00:42:18--> 00:42:19

And this is this is

00:42:21--> 00:42:22

a denial of

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

history. One of the strangest.

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

One of the worst passages that you will find in that book,

00:42:33--> 00:42:36

which is talking about his attitude he quotes from

00:42:42--> 00:42:43

the Muslim religion

00:42:44--> 00:42:49

should not display the beauty and ornaments except with appearance, there are 11.

00:42:52--> 00:42:54

And listen to what you're saying, if this isn't the end of

00:42:57--> 00:43:04

what she's calling for isn't the end of the job. I don't know what she said the Arabic expression. In

00:43:06--> 00:43:11

other words, except what appeared there out years, this passage

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

must ordinarily appear there

00:43:17--> 00:43:19

is one which signifies

00:43:20--> 00:43:30

recommended, which we're recommending, although this is a recommending a conformance with the perfect prevailing customs of a region or period

00:43:32--> 00:43:34

and said nothing about the necessity for the

00:43:35--> 00:43:39

fall envelope and reps. The left only the hands is

00:43:42--> 00:43:42

the book

00:43:44--> 00:43:54

published by saying that the job is no such thing as a job, but it is what it is saying that we must conform with the prevailing customs or regional food.

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

The prevailing custom of the United States is a woman in the United States.

00:44:01--> 00:44:08

This verse in the bar that says don't display your arguments, and your beauty to any one of these men, is telling us that

00:44:10--> 00:44:12

whatever is the prevailing test another time

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

if you're

00:44:19--> 00:44:21

getting voted with them, and

00:44:23--> 00:44:25

then you see that they published this book and so on.

00:44:26--> 00:44:29

Your book has some authority.

00:44:31--> 00:44:37

And here's another one that you people, you folks from last night will will I think enjoy

00:44:39--> 00:44:39

seeing

00:44:46--> 00:44:47

the magenta that you thought he was

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

because she says she writes in fact,

00:44:53--> 00:44:57

because of grammatical requirements nuts is a feminine word in Arabic.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Meaning one person,

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

the first person is created as feminine.

00:45:06--> 00:45:15

Despite this fact, listen to this really amazing. Despite this fact, English translations influenced by the Old Testament story,

00:45:17--> 00:45:21

make the transfer to masculine on translating the relevant passage from abroad

00:45:34--> 00:45:35

to English

00:45:36--> 00:45:37

by the Old Testament story.

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

So again, if you're a new Muslim woman, you know, you don't even have access to the

00:45:52--> 00:45:54

she talks about some of the reform movements.

00:45:58--> 00:46:00

She mentions the woman writer and activist

00:46:03--> 00:46:03

and

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

included reforms in the treatment of women in their movement.

00:46:11--> 00:46:12

For the time being

00:46:21--> 00:46:28

Ameen was another active leader in the movement for emancipation of women, as viewed from within the Islamic context

00:46:31--> 00:46:33

are how many of your

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

I mean,

00:46:35--> 00:46:42

but the display is awesome. I mean, as an active leader in the mirror for masturbation of women, that's fine. It's okay.

00:46:43--> 00:46:46

As beautiful within this context,

00:46:53--> 00:46:54

at the turn of the century in Egypt,

00:46:57--> 00:47:02

and basically his his basic idea, he went to France, he visited Europe.

00:47:04--> 00:47:11

And basically, his basic argument was Egypt, you Egyptian women must follow their friends, sisters and everything.

00:47:12--> 00:47:18

He says the reason behind is because they fall behind, and debris, great arts

00:47:19--> 00:47:20

and theater and music.

00:47:21--> 00:47:22

I forget the other one.

00:47:31--> 00:47:37

The men and women basically call for changes and everything

00:47:38--> 00:47:43

with them. And he said we must follow the way of Europe, Europe as a civilized as a scientific

00:47:44--> 00:47:46

professional in a computer science.

00:47:48--> 00:47:50

profession, we have a way

00:47:51--> 00:47:52

of

00:47:56--> 00:47:57

saying that this was

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

within the

00:48:03--> 00:48:03

emancipation

00:48:05--> 00:48:05

of Islam

00:48:07--> 00:48:07

is

00:48:10--> 00:48:18

another argument that you hear quite often. And their particular arguments actually I had a whole section about them, but we probably won't have time for that.

00:48:21--> 00:48:30

She says most of these reformers that change the reinterpretation of the original sources of the Sharia rather than a completely new creation based on a cultural heritage

00:48:32--> 00:48:33

of a maintained

00:48:34--> 00:48:36

later women's women.

00:48:41--> 00:48:42

She says that these people's

00:48:44--> 00:48:44

interpretation of

00:48:47--> 00:48:50

whether they're in a completely new creation based on

00:48:54--> 00:48:57

the left to the left is up to the French and so on.

00:48:58--> 00:49:00

As many people are wanting to know

00:49:01--> 00:49:02

mericans on

00:49:04--> 00:49:05

this plane

00:49:18--> 00:49:21

to speak as a musician he he did something which

00:49:24--> 00:49:25

he took the ball with them within the

00:49:26--> 00:49:27

hour an hour.

00:49:34--> 00:49:36

Another path that she talks about
