So now the black people in the audience now you know your origin.
So seven minutes, and with that seven minutes
the next and that's why the Mormons when they come to you, it's so it's so easy to start with. They come to you, have you heard of the Church of Christ?
Aren't you the one that believe that God needs to be a human and we've done our will become gods and immediately look down. And then you know, the high point low point, come with a low point and come up to the minute some
of it, you start to invite them to snap. So instead of them giving you that what you use that for they're in that state of shame. You're the one giving the talk. You're the one giving the doubt. Don't be the one who is the mother, oh, some of this belief system is giving you that. But
something else here.
Someone asked me a question
Okay. So someone asked also. Yeah, that was one question. And there was another question. Yeah.
The The question was about the feminine men,
feminine men, they're not gay, I think they're just a feminine.
They have loose joints, the wrist folds freely. The sometimes some of them use women's Cologne, things like that, but they're not gay.
So that, for example, a lot of cooks are offended. Most of the time, the cook is toxic, a woman uses a woman's perfume, but it's not gay, doesn't feel affection for men or
feminine men. And they still exist also at the time of
soft, soft, like the company of women, and so on and so forth. They don't necessarily fall into the category of gays, as they start doing that kind of activity and become gay. But also there's, there's also like,
it's not gay, that's what we try to argue. There's something called kleinfelder syndrome, which is basically as you know, the male has two X chromosome, sorry, a female has two X chromosomes, and the male has an X and a Y. So this is a genetic disorder where they have two x's and a y. So x x, y. So they have got x x, which is to make that female, but they've got an x y. This is the kind of person that you see genetically was born like this, and you might see
a man or woman, someone with quite climb filters. They will have, let's say male hands, like hairy Hands, fingers, and then they'll have like, mammary glands, say, and then they'll have, you know, something male and something female. And you might be confused. And they're not someone who went through an operation and tried to change or anything like that they were just born like that. So if you ever find someone's trying to use that as an argument to say, look, it's genetic, they're not gay, these people, they just have both genes. And some their personality will be one or the other. I interviewed one person who had Klein filters and he was a male, he was married and he was taking
other hormones to just keep his feminine
physical part suppressed, but he was actually a male he had sometimes it's the opposite it's a woman but then she's got you know the man hands or they wear the hair or something like that. It has nothing to do with gays or not
like, naturally they they have
it's like a mix of male and female. What about them?
What is their ruling or did they classify as gay?
The ruling the
ruling is like going to men's rooms or
what would they be considered here and can they marry and things like that?
Well, you know what, I've never looked that up actually. I've
So as the only looked up and like is Tom QA or something like that? Yeah, yeah.
like actually like sexually not active.
it was a cut out for them to like, walk onto
the feminine. The feminine man. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. And it's actually talking about trends.
Like they have the option
to choose like, which
which hormones, they want to have surgery.
You didn't explain.
But look, let's just let's just do this let's move on.
And the people because I'm not sure where we're talking about, there might be an effeminate man. And he's just a male who's a feminine, he doesn't have the right to change, you know, to go through operation to try to become a woman. And if that does happen, is he allowed to enter the women's restroom, he would be probably allowed because he's an effeminate man to enter upon women more so in a way that the male would be allowed, because at the time, there was a man who was a feminist. And he used to sit and talk with the woman president allowed him because it was a feminine, but then the president realized that the man pays attention to female physique prospects that he would not
interrupt one woman again. So he made a description. So he looks at the woman physic even though he was a feminist, the person forbade him to sit after that,
then there's because now you know, the world is so mixed up, we've got some really, really extreme cases, a friend of mine was telling me what his boss who used to be a male, and just doesn't get worse than this, who is a male, went through operations and hormones and surgery and became a female
and then became a lesbian.
And he went back to liking woman, good estate amount and like, me, just doesn't get worse than that. So, obviously, that's beyond me, though.
Those kinds of things. I don't know how to answer that.
Okay, so so we said, Allah does not need us to worship him. But Allah
commanded us to worship Him. Can you explain that? Why should we worship? Surely command? standard? What even commands to do that? Yes, sir.
So can you just read this and we don't have to pray to be thankful for? Can I be thankful without praying?
I'm not saying it's about it. Yeah. Because we need it. Because we need when that's true. I mean, that was that was true as well.
So you can look at obedience and disobedience.
So in the bad times, it's something you fall back on worst luck, please raise your voice brothers or sisters in here. As long as
it's a mercy. It's not like a third choice and versus the prayer itself.
is not a chore. It's immersive. Very good. dessert.
promises that what's what is your friend
need to create a
every time you post something exactly like I say.
Excellent. So the coolest thing, you know sometimes, what if someone keeps pushing it with the whys?
Why should we pray?
Why? Why? Why you explain why you explain when you run out of explanations. Now, what are you going to do? Prior back to look, this is what's going on. This is the situation what are you going to do about? That's the question we're going to go with here.
We don't know all the wives, but I was there and we had
to bring it back to the doubt. But okay, let's let's push it with the y's until we have to stop someone else.
Okay? Now, by the way, don't please don't quote this. It's, it's not authentic. A lot of times I've asked that question if someone's
going to cut now,
I'm going to say no, just don't say that can then
be doing something like that. It's basically it says, I was a treasure that was not known. I want it to be known. So I created people to worship. And it's not authentic, don't use it. But as some scholars say, that allows you
to do so magnificent and so great, that he is deserving of being worshipped, deserving of being appreciated. That's when you look at the numbers of angels, phenomenal, phenomenal numbers of angels, and they're constantly worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, non stop, they don't stop to eat or drink or talk, non stop, some of them sit
alone when the how long that has been, they've been in non stop worship until the day of judgment. And when the defendant comes they will say oh, we haven't worshipped you enough. And and you know, the headache of the of the summer with the hands. And the heavens have creeped, rightfully so that they did Creek. So we're talking about the heavens, the seven heavens, not just you know, our universe. So you know all of space and everything that's within the first Heaven, worldly heaven. So this is just the size of the first step and then the second and the third and the fourth and the fifth and the sixth and the seventh, there fast side. Both of them said the creek from the wait on
them, which is rightfully so that they did Creek for there is not a hand span. Just from here to there is an angel standing or brown or bowing or prostrating in prayer. So here, just this room filled every person here, here, here, here, wherever we fill this whole city, every has gone to someone. What if they filled the whole continent, the whole planet, we're talking to seven heavens, loaded with angels, constantly standing in guarded, bowing and prostrating are standing in prayer for them said they've been doing so ever since Allah created them. And they will continue to do quality and quantity. Until the trumpet and horn is sound on the Day of Judgment, they will say, Oh,
look, we have not worshipped you enough.
Oh, this so far, be it from us to pray and then feel arrogant. I just pray to know. That's why the person I'm talking to say stuff. First thing you do have to
say this or that it is complete, it is not befitting the majesty of the greatness of these angels have been worshipping this excellent quality, they don't think of anything else. And they will say we haven't worshipped you enough. You're so good, it's so great and so magnificent that he's deserving of being worshipped, deserving of being recognized. And some people try to explain this, like they say, like when you have, let's say, for the sake of example,
that we have some vintage clothes, a classical car that's in support condition, very old Li but it's in excellent condition. And if it's in your garage, constantly, it's not appreciate, right? So that's why we have these events when they bring them to so people can come public and come and look at these products they're inside. So they can be appreciate. Some scholars tell you that some of the attributes of law will be manifested when there is a creation, like for example,
it will be manifested, meaning applied, when there is a creation to show
when there is a question that to create, and so on and so forth, and wisdoms and all these other things. So you explain it like that. If they keep pushing with the whys, and you're going to run out of explanation, then you turn it back. So Well, you know what, now you've run to we've reached the point where my knowledge is limited. And you can't expect any human being on earth anyways, to go that far into knowledge. The question now is, you know, it's the truth. You know, Allah exists and you're here. What are you going to do about it?
Just now get back to your demo again. Don't always take the position of you asked my answers you asked my answer.
Second thing is that we
Excellent everyone, Stan.
Thank you very much sister. But
I want to I want to talk about the flip side of the argument one more time, or explain it a little bit further, right. So as I said, we can always use the flip side of the argument to explain something, we used it with the intervention and how much you're what bad things happen to good people and good things happen about people. There are also other ways to do it.
So for example,
let's use it with a Muslim. So one Muslim will tell you that and you've heard us make this argument before, they'll tell you that. Don't say that Allah is on his throne. Some Muslims will tell you that. Don't Don't make the argument that Allah have settled on histone, even though Allah says in the Quran until you know, it's not honest. Look at their arguments. They make the argument it sounds like it's very respectful.
But when you push the argument,
but when you fix the argument.
So basically, they're saying, Don't say that a loved one is thrown, because that way you're limiting, see how it sounds good. You're limiting a loved one place, don't say.
So the argument is limiting a lot. It makes it sound like you're trying to be very respectful here. It sounds good in the beginning. But then when you flip the argument around, it's a big problem, what they're saying. They're saying, don't say, strong.
Strong, are not an option stone was settled on his film. So now in order to stay with their their argument, they have to now with and change the meanings of the format, which is the first problem to get into. So when you say, obviously stone, settled on stone, they say no, Stella here means is stone up, which means I can contact his throne, which now brings us into a bit problem. You're saying look conquered the throne. That means there was someone there on the throne. So we had to conquer
the fall into problems because of their argument. So they're saying, don't sell us on film, you're limiting a lot to one place. Let me flip this around. You're saying, if he's on his throne, he's limited physically limited to one place, if I flip it around, it means he's physically
everywhere. That's the opposite. And that is a bigger problem. You're trying to follow the lead. You're trying to avoid being disrespectful, you actually fell into it even more. So when you flip it around. It means he's physically everywhere. And then you ask him. So here, you can use analogy, but we're flipping the argument still. So they're saying that physically everywhere means is everyone? Anyone ever beloved in the church, restrooms, bars, all these places that you wouldn't be caught dead in? And you're saying he's physically in there. And historically, Muslims have gone astray with this because that some of them even wrote poetry saying, Yeah, any, any woman can boo.
The dog in the pig is nothing but our
dog and the pig is our God, why is the dog takes up space, the pig takes up space, and God is everywhere physically.
Also inside them, and so is the monk in the monastery. These are Illa what it said, you know, he said, You know, I don't know, which is
I don't know which one of us is the last one, which one of us is the one who's supposed to worship the other. Another one says so apparently Subhana Allah, because a lot is in him that what he believes, you know? So when you look at the flip side of the argument, it's a bigger problem. They were trying to respect the love and say he's not on his throne, because that limits him to one place, but you flip it around. You're saying he's everywhere in places that you wouldn't want to be cut that in and then you're saying is inside, all these things to get into a bigger problem. So you flip the argument around. This is the same thing that happened at the top of the mountain humble
when they said the Quran was created.
So they again tried initially to be respectful to Allah. They said the Quran is not disputable. Why? Because speech is renewable.
And a lot of them did is an
ancient it's been there for
ever. So if you say Allah speaks, that's a renewable quality that was ancient or
ancient. So the trying to respect a lot, but the problem is when you flip the argument around, that's what
he did. When he flipped the argument around, we have a big problem now, because you're saying the Quran is not the speech of Allah. It's something created by Allah, and all the creation of Allah. And everything besides the law is imperfect,
imperfect, and it has flaws in it. And everything has an end, you're saying that the fraud has some kind of and that's one of the arguments that I use, when he tells him that, you know, I came to make Waldo when it came to pray, and I couldn't recite any surah. And then I looked in the room, and I found dead on the floor. So the
discipline dying, said, What you said is great, and everything that's created as an end. So there were so I mean, he used the knowledge and everything. But when you flip the argument around, you see that it's a big problem. So that's the benefit of using the flip side of the argument. That's why someone when they say, like, I don't believe in organized religion, for what it's worth, I love throwing in the word disorganized, just so they can think about the flip side, I don't believe in organized religion. So would you prefer a disorganized one? And I know that's not what they mean. But they
know that then you get them to think of the flip side, what do you mean, organize? What do you want, you want something that's not organized, you want it to be your way, that every way you feel like
they're saying that the Quran is not the speech of Allah, it's something creative.
And he, and he's arguing with them that everything created by Allah is imperfect. I mean, all that was perfect. All the description is imperfect, and things so that means for unbeknown
to everything, that's great. Bella has an end, that means you're claiming for and will have an end that he given the analogy on died last night, and they got a copy to say dogs created that as an end. So ended yesterday. So
many other arguments, many, many other analogies, he also went into the being the knowledge of a lot. So then he argues with the clickers to send him
people to debate with him. So he would argue with him, we told him is the knowledge of aliquid. So one of them says yes. Because if he says no, he has to extend that argument. So he had to say yes.
How could you say that it will lead to the guard.
He is just a simple guard standing there. He doesn't know the scholars are debating he doesn't know who really can follow it doesn't have enough knowledge on it, does the money become a cover? So that the guard gets upset? It doesn't this is the messenger of the halifa. How can you call for a cover? So simple guard, he tells him, he's saying that the less knowledge is created.
So that means that before I left reading his knowledge, he had no knowledge. And how can he create his knowledge if he didn't have knowledge? So he said the guard just started to give them the meantime, you know, he started to stare at the simple guide. So how can you say that? You know, so he kept reversing his argument, giving the flip side giving it to me read the Bible.
Oh, that's a small number of people have
broken? just unbelievably.
Unbelievable. Now, you've heard it by? Yeah.
Sherman. Oh, they do it.
Okay, actually, I actually have a dislike six hours, but it's not produced anywhere. Somebody wants to take it and edit it.
Or give it to. It's so phenomenal. It's so so, so phenomenal. It's so detailed. It's heartbreaking. You laugh, you cry, you everything is just, and what a hero what a man and you and you love him because you see that he was afraid at times, but he encouraged himself.
Because you know what the scholars, historians and scholars say, let's save this religion. But with a severe on the day of a render
on the day of the
man of the creation and why are Booker numbered? Why are these the two greatest stances in Islamic history according to scholars,
because there are many times when they let the Mongols invaded the moon.
limbs and they destroyed their libraries and so on. But Islam itself wasn't under any threat of changing.
Just Muslims were under the threat, but Islam was still okay the religion, but at the time, he stayed steadfast and he preserved Islam from his
work within stamps that fast. Today we have an Islam without a hammer stands that fast. Today we would have Islam where the foreign was created and not the spiritual lives. And then the arguments that he used were so phenomenal. And every time he will stop them, they'll add more chains and Brixton has chains and, and they would beat him they would trample him to put something on top and they all walk over him and they would knock him out. And he's a thin frail man. He's just and see in the beginning, I know, just beautiful. The beginning of a lot of scholars that were honest started, then they were threatened with jail threaten with the sword, only nine remained. Then they were
threatened again, only seven of the nine of us will say what you want us to say only two remained
Humbert and a young man named Mohammed, just this young man, just these two people. Send them to me.
I'm just gonna kill. So a man came in crimes in
the honeypot. He's got the sword, he pull it out, and he's gonna kill.
raise his hands up. And he made to sit when he put his hands down. He heard some screams. And if I passed away, anyways, phenomenal story. I hope
that was a preview.
Anyways, we're talking about the flip side. So you see you flip the argument around.
I did it with the beard guts, right? But it was a beard. Basically, the nicely told him Why do you shave? No.
But there was a speech being given by a Muslim speaker at university. A woman came in? Oh, angry yelling, pointing at the sisters section. What are they covered like that? So he tells her Well, I mean, you were born unclothed, why are you covered now? So she said, honesty,
modesty demands, the more you cover yourself, the more modest you are using the flip side of the argument, and don't really use this. But it's the flip side.
If someone tells you,
a woman argues, you know, these women are covered and so on. And they're not liberated. The argument is that the more uncovered you are, the more liberated you are. And you could argue but don't do it. You could argue well, I see that you're still not fully liberated at the moment. But are you liberated?
So, but the flip side of the argument, if covered is, is the oppressed, and uncovered is liberated won't just be 100% liberated.
Of course, don't use the article.
Sometimes people try to use a fact or statistic, the wrong is that we saw until you know, some some zebras are gay. So suppose that was a real fact. would that mean that we should be like that? No, sometimes to tell you something is natural. Like there was this atheist guy with me at work. And again, don't do this, I'm just showing you the guy who's being very aggressive. So I just came to something of a measure, where he said, I'll get used to SEO. So the, he was arguing aggressively just really hates a pizza snob. And he thinks he's so upon the truth.
So he was saying that, you know, he's talking about, you know, women flaunting their sexuality and things like that. And I kept telling him that it's not appropriate. And he was saying it's a natural thing. So his argument was that it's natural. And then my counter argument is that not everything that's natural, should be done publicly. And people argue a lot of time to tell you it's natural to be like this, or that's a natural feeling. But I thought, yeah, it's not true. Do you do everything natural out publicly talk about publicly, so I told him, okay, so I actually told him and
because of the situation.
So I said, I mean, it's natural to have a bone on the table right now. And it pulled down two paths and have a bone on the table.
And he was stumped immediately. Because it's natural, but you don't do it like that. So don't tell me it's natural to have urges and therefore, it's like these people who argue with music until you it's natural to like music, a child will listen to music and start jumping up and down. It's not true. Yeah. Well, every teenager has urges. That's natural. Also, some
They bought it from the store. It's a natural Earth. What does it mean? It makes it okay. Some people try to argue if it's natural, that means it's, if it naturally happens to you, that means it's harder now. So you counter it like that. So sometimes they use the logic in the wrong place. And there are many other things that are natural, but you don't do publicly. Or you don't even talk about publicly. But we've got like, 10 minutes left, right.
In 10 minutes left, let's talk about quantifying arguments. It's another technique to get them to not arguments, but statements. Get them to quantify the state, sir. Okay. So let me
someone tells you, you ask someone you know, you think about Islam like to become Muslim? He tells you? No, because I'm actually very happy being Christian.
says that? Where do you go from there?
Where do you go from there? Go wherever you want to go through the day? What do you mean by
someone else? That's it. That's just said, where'd you get that?
Excellent. Very good. What do you mean by happy? You can't the absolute answer. Yes.
You have another question. But let me finish this point. And I forgot about. Sorry, I'll come back to you. But look, if someone tells you I'm satisfied being a Christian, I am happy being Christian. You can't argue this statement at all. You can't argue the fact that he's happy. What are you going to say? Don't be happy. I don't want you to be happy. Or let me make you happy. You can argue about happy.
You can argue happy. You can't argue satisfied. No lawyers use the stick any lawyers in the audience. What do you people studying him?
yeah, they use this technique. But someone says, Yeah, it was a hard work. So they can't tackle the fact that you're a hard worker. So they get you to quantify what hard means. So let me say did you work? You know, eight to eight to nine? What is it nine to five? So yeah. And did you work Mondays through Fridays? And just take some Friday's off? Yeah. Every other week or two Fridays? Do you take Saturday and Sunday? So basically, you basically worked Monday through Thursday, and then the next week, Monday through Friday?
Okay, so the quantified so when someone tells you I'm satisfied being Christian, don't tackle the fact that he's satisfied. Get him to define what makes them satisfied. So look at this scenario here, someone tells you I'm satisfied being Christian. Instead of saying Don't be satisfied, I'll make you more set not to say, Okay, what makes you satisfied? What gives you this feeling of satisfaction? Because you use example, you say? Well, it's the reason is that I'm satisfied because Jesus died for my sins. You have something to work with now.
Listen to me, Listen to me. Listen, you have something to work with now? Yes. Now you can work with the fact that Jesus died for your sins, I have something so to work out and to tackle and to analyze, but I can talk to the fact that he's happy. I can tell him what makes you happy being Christian. And he could say, well, it's the fact that x x x and now you can tackle that, that point, you can tackle the fact that he's happy to explain, begin to explain what makes him satisfied. You know, things of that sort. So that's how you quantify an argument assuming doesn't make sense. If you don't know what that means. Always ask for an explanation, then get to the root of what makes
them feel a certain way. Okay, it's just a
Okay, okay. You guys get the question. How do you answer that?
Yeah, that's true. Men are supposed to be modest. But there are more regulations on the woman wants to one the woman
greeted them differently and he made for the most part, sometimes these laws don't apply now because people have become strange, but he made for the most part, that the beauty of the woman is in her appearance, and she the woman will
be a fitna or a temptation for the man when he sees her.
The fitna of the woman
is when the man sees. And that's why allowed me to cover up herself. So she does not become like just an object and so on and so forth. But the women are not as effective by affected by attractive men as men are attracted to.
The problem with this thing, this was an old argument, but the problem with it now is that, and this was, you know, something weird that we discovered that, you know, discord as a whole is to say that one woman can
be a temptation for 100 men, but 100 men couldn't get a dish for one, that's what they used to say back there. And it was true. But now, you know, you hear this stuff about, you know, whoo, you know, it's changed. Now, let me just say that it's changed, I need
to even get into this stuff. There was a Masjid in one area, let's see where, where one brother, his wife told him that the sisters in the salon are excited about this to do.
I mean, I was shocked when he was very difficult to make from that plays from that point on.
You wouldn't expect that because we used to argue that, you know, women are not attracted to them by looking at the man. And that's why the lowering the gaze is harder upon the men, it's more obligated on the men and the woman. But of course, the rule is that if the woman is excited by looking at the man, and she has to lower her gaze, if a man
is getting a man is excited, by looking at anything, he lowers his gaze from, if you have a vase in your house that shape like this, and that base excites you don't look at
that brother has serious issues.
I mentioned that if a man if he sees a young boy,
you know, the guy that sees a zebra.
Whatever it is, don't look at it.
Anyways, but the point is that the chance of the woman having a bigger fitness physically, is greater than that. So look what her beauty also physically, and that creates a huge fitness
10 million men now can become tuning from looking at one woman. That's why the obligation is stronger to cover because there's the brothers that have been in a different physically, and so on and so forth. And so, so just try to go I know that was kind of scattered the argument, but just try to go somewhere along those lines of explaining why there's more of an obligation to copper. That's why also, you find sometimes like the Heidi, with
a woman, you know, she does her five prayers, she passed her monster, her husband, she guards her private branch to go to Paradise from any of the gates that she wants to. Now, you look at it, and then sometimes systems will get or what, you know, why is the when you explain that? why the President mentioned the woman guarding her privates more so because the scholars explained that, that she she's the
she's the one that will determine if that happens or not.
The woman says, No, no, no sin will happen. And so it's just the man is awesome. But yes, I understand that. But the goal is that the green light when the red light comes from, from the woman. And so that's why she was given that honor that if she protects her private enterprises, from any of the gifts that she won, so we have to look at it from in Islam is really beautiful. They tell you that the scholars say that if you if you consider two things that are different, if you treat them exactly equally, that's injustice. If you have two things that are different, and you treat them exactly equally, in every aspect, that's injustice, true or false, right? And if men are different
from women, we have to treat vastly different treatment. If I say, Okay, this sister and treat her just like she was a man, you know, then I'm being unfair. Sure, on a human level, this is a one soul. This is one soul. This is one third and this is the fourth human being No, on a human level, they're exactly yes equal. But when it comes to other things, they're different. So you have to treat them differently. And that's why the shader has made different rulings for women when it comes to this and different rulings for them in Ramadan in childbirth, because there's a difference between don't accept this argument that what the men can do this, the woman can do that. And this is
part of the problem with the radical feminists, not the feminist movement, the radical feminists movement. The RFU man did white men do this and we don't do that. Their goal in life was to be just like the man. So if the man is a boxer, we have the box. He drives a 18 Wheeler.
We have to drive 18 wheelers, if he's a firefighter, we have to be firefighters. Whatever the man does, that's what we aspire to become.
