Illa Yama Dean

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

brothers in

00:00:55--> 00:01:00

when we speak to non Muslims

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

especially the atheists, the people who do not believe in the existence of Allah subhana wa Taala normal Mujahideen

00:01:16--> 00:01:19

and you know the would normally

00:01:21--> 00:01:27

ask us to provide an evidence for the existence of Allah subhana wa tada

00:01:30--> 00:01:39

and this is something that we actually should study and, and research because the majority of the people on earth are actually atheists.

00:01:41--> 00:01:47

Now, we have multiple evidence that we can present to them,

00:01:48--> 00:01:51

whether luck, the intellect,

00:01:53--> 00:01:53

will feel,

00:01:54--> 00:02:09

the inclination, the fact that everyone has that inside him that there is a God out there and so forth. But one of these evidence is, is the religion itself

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

that Allah Subhana Allah revealed a guidance.

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

If you follow

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

it will save you.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

It will make you are a better person.

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

It will protect you.

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

It will deliver you

00:02:34--> 00:02:37

a lot of the schoolers of Deaf sees

00:02:39--> 00:02:44

they said this verse, which was revealed in Surah Al anon

00:02:45--> 00:03:00

a woman can uneaten for a hyena who was in LA who neuron young she v fineness karma methyl who filled Voluma t Lee said the hora de minha

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

is the one who was dead.

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

And we given him life.

00:03:09--> 00:03:19

And with that life, we given him lights with which he is walking in earth amongst people, showing them the light as well.

00:03:20--> 00:03:26

They said this verse was revealed regarding Omar on the top of the Alon

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

Omar was dead.

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

Omar lived almost 60 years.

00:03:35--> 00:03:42

Imagine 30 years of Jay Hillier, I can tell you in two sentences.

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

What Omar used to do in Jay Z.

00:03:47--> 00:03:54

You need a lot. He used to drink. He used to be harsh crew.

00:03:55--> 00:04:07

But for me to tell you how much Omar did in the other 30 years. I need volumes, his books.

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

Now, what transformed Omar

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

What?

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

What changed him?

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

What made him

00:04:22--> 00:04:30

someone who leads the salah and he recites the Quran and he cries breaks in tears.

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

Change that harshness, harshness

00:04:35--> 00:04:56

for one of the evidence again that we use to establish that Allah Subhana Allah exists is the fact that Allah subhana wa Taala revealed a curriculum, a Sharia law, you name it, whatever name you want to name it, a religion, a revelation that can transform you.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Basically, it did

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

Transforming the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from zeros, to heals,

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

from people with no mention

00:05:11--> 00:05:16

to people who still talk about them right now, this is it.

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

And this is how we should present the Sahaba.

00:05:24--> 00:05:29

Recently, you probably are aware, and I'm sorry, I'm gonna get off subject tonight

00:05:30--> 00:05:33

have a picture, a cartoon

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

called VLAN,

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

which is designed for our children.

00:05:43--> 00:06:08

And, you know what, it's wonderful. Listen, well not backward, if there is a way out there, that we can convey this message to any person in the face of this earth. We should do it. And that's why we're doing this stuff. Hopefully, that's the intention not to be famous or get fame. No, we want the word to get out there to everybody.

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

And

00:06:11--> 00:06:18

there is nothing wrong with making a nice, you know, Cartoon for the children to

00:06:20--> 00:06:28

simply know, the Sahaba even though the way it should be done, it should be done in

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

you know, without the violation of these characters.

00:06:36--> 00:06:44

I mean, the picture was so great, you know, the 3d and the sounds, and it captures your heart.

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

It captures it, it really gets to you. I mean,

00:06:51--> 00:06:58

I did some research tonight. And I found out that they spent $13 million

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

on this picture

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

to produce it. And it is the one or the first one of its type in a way.

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

But

00:07:10--> 00:07:18

I haven't seen the pictures myself to be fair. But I have read extensive reviews in it.

00:07:19--> 00:07:30

I have read heard people who watched it thoroughly, and they criticize it thoroughly.

00:07:31--> 00:07:47

I will make you the judge what about this tonight? And you tell me is that the way we should present our companions to our kids or not? Here is how the story was presented in that picture.

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

A black boy

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

was born in Abyssinia.

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

His mother inspired him.

00:07:59--> 00:08:03

She always taught him self confidence in beautiful.

00:08:04--> 00:08:10

She taught him to be free and to stand for his rights.

00:08:11--> 00:08:15

Again, I'm telling you how the picture is this is the picture

00:08:16--> 00:08:21

and you will be the judge at the end. If this is who we know

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

or not.

00:08:24--> 00:08:25

He had a sister.

00:08:27--> 00:08:49

At one stage their tribe was attacked. Both bill and his sisters were abducted. And they were brought to Mecca sold in slavery to one of the worst characters in Mecca. His name is Romania ignore

00:08:51--> 00:09:00

the one on whom ye Luli Cooley Homer's Odyssey Lumumba was revealed about

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

an enemy of Islam. Someone who loves money, who hates the truth.

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

Bilal became a slave

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

under this man

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

and he was

00:09:18--> 00:09:34

famous Mershon extremely rich. Bilal found himself in an idol worshipping environment, people worshipping idols that showed in the movie. But with that, a lot of injustice.

00:09:35--> 00:09:48

Look at this now. Now bill are living under this injustice. By all the sudden a movement emerged in town a movement

00:09:49--> 00:09:57

in order to free the slaves in order to combat social injustice.

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

A movement

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

Schools the movement.

00:10:03--> 00:10:13

And finally, Bill l was liked by one of the leaders of this movement, a famous wise man called our Walk

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

to Freedom.

00:10:17--> 00:10:28

He said to him, you can be a good member of that movement. Join us. Later on, they have to migrate from Mecca to another town.

00:10:29--> 00:10:40

Then they gun into series of battles against the people of Mecca. That movement again is the people of Mecca.

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

In the first encounter,

00:10:45--> 00:11:05

below, actually ended up fighting his master, and he killed him. And that was a big moment in the movie that I vengeance, my slavery. At the end, that movement, conquered Mecca.

00:11:06--> 00:11:22

And they won, and they spread quality and justice in town. The movie ends with Bilal climbing, a black thing.

00:11:24--> 00:11:32

Not even mentioned what it is. And then while he's on the top of the cab, supposedly

00:11:33--> 00:11:43

he remembered the words of his mother when he was a little baby, a little child, I'm sorry, when he was a little boy.

00:11:44--> 00:11:52

And he looked at himself and he saw himself to be a free man. Then he said, Allahu Akbar.

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

The end.

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

That's the lad.

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

cartoon.

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

Let's be led.

00:12:08--> 00:12:11

Is this is the DLL we know.

00:12:16--> 00:12:20

The DLL we know brothers in Islam is the one

00:12:22--> 00:12:23

who

00:12:24--> 00:12:25

actually

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

joined Islam to become a monotheists

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

to be a follower of EDS

00:12:36--> 00:12:42

when he became a model theist, this led him to be what to be free.

00:12:43--> 00:12:51

But remember when omega mohalla found out that he is praying at night,

00:12:52--> 00:13:00

he asked him, you're no longer worshiping our gods. He said, No. I worship one God now.

00:13:01--> 00:13:11

When ommaya and his hellebores used to persecute and chastise him in the desert

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

under the heat of the sun

00:13:17--> 00:13:22

when you they used to blaze that huge rock

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

on his back.

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

He used to say what

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

I hadn't. I had.

00:13:33--> 00:13:41

That's why we learn joy in that show called moving movement. That movement is a movement of terrain.

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

We call it Islam.

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

We call it Islam that movement.

00:13:49--> 00:13:52

You see BelAir became a Muslim,

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

became a Muslim.

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

And this is why he was persecuted by his master by his

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

and

00:14:03--> 00:14:10

no Beloved, you know, the movie, the backs believed that he joined that movement in order to get his freedom.

00:14:12--> 00:14:16

No, that's not correct. Bilal became a Muslim because of the heat.

00:14:17--> 00:14:26

Bill and by the way was asked later on. Yeah, VLAN or VLAN. Why did you say that word?

00:14:28--> 00:14:51

Why did you choose that particular words? I had, you know what they said, by a law? Would I have known another word that would make them more angry than this word? I would have said it. But I knew this is what will make them angry. Because you need to understand that the disbelievers in Mecca at this time they knew of the Hadees more than the Muslims now.

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

The new Oppo ad

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

leha illa hanwa ada in the head Elijah unije.

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

The new auto it is fabulous.

00:15:04--> 00:15:18

You see, we had another example in the in the Qureshi society similar to Bilal who used his skills and his bravery to gain his freedom.

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

You know what I'm talking about?

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

Who was she?

00:15:25--> 00:15:29

Was she the one who killed Hamza, right? How did he gain his freedom?

00:15:31--> 00:15:35

They should have given us the story of washi. That would have been

00:15:37--> 00:15:44

easy because Wow, she really used his skills and his bravery in order to gain his freedom.

00:15:46--> 00:15:51

He said to the Qureshi, listen, if I kill Hamza in offered, will I get my freedom? Yes.

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

And he was a good Archer.

00:15:55--> 00:16:06

Now, LA. Bilal did not join that movement to get his freedom. Bilal joined that movement because it was the movement of the head.

00:16:07--> 00:16:18

Below the one that we know, my respected brothers and sisters in Islam, someone the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

that the roaming

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

of his feet in gender.

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

Is it a Muslim?

00:16:27--> 00:16:36

Yeah, bln tilby the Act, which you do, and you have so much relevant?

00:16:37--> 00:16:44

knowledge, I'm LML TOEFL Islamia Bilal, I heard that drumming of your feet in gender.

00:16:46--> 00:17:15

He said you're a school of law or messenger of Allah anytime day or night, I will do but I follow that will do with two rockers. I always keep up with the state of fubu. And whenever I make will do I pray to work as he said this is it. This is why you will know something brothers and sisters in Islam in that picture one and a half hour almost bilello never seen praying one time.

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

Make one time.

00:17:22--> 00:17:32

What about that one time? Who knows something very interesting. They have this character bilello in the picture, sing a whole song.

00:17:35--> 00:17:41

But they never had him make the event one time, except that Allahu Akbar, which I shared with you.

00:17:44--> 00:17:52

Imagine what what is that? What is the main rank of Bilal, if you want to remember Bilaal with what what what is the first thing that spring into your mind? What

00:17:54--> 00:17:59

was he? He did not make the edge then one time

00:18:01--> 00:18:06

he was not seen reciting one verse of the Quran one time.

00:18:07--> 00:18:21

There was no mention of a law in this picture except two times when he was getting the truck in his heart and his back. He said, aha, aha, of course, nobody says the one one.

00:18:23--> 00:18:31

And the one when he said Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, at the no mention of Allah whatsoever in that movie.

00:18:34--> 00:18:43

No mention of Allah. No mention of the revelation which transformed Bilaal no mention of Islam, who know something.

00:18:45--> 00:18:49

Below love the Prophet Solomon to sell them so much.

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

That when he died Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, Bilal couldn't make the other.

00:18:57--> 00:19:08

He couldn't make the other. He would say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. Once he comes to a shadow now Mohammed Rasulullah he can't. He breaks in tears.

00:19:10--> 00:19:10

He can't anymore.

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

He can't he can't.

00:19:14--> 00:19:30

He said to avec Robach. I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yeah halifa Rasulullah You are the successor of the Messenger of Allah I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam saying the best act for a believer is jihad. Please allow me to go

00:19:32--> 00:19:39

over closer to him who's gonna make the attempt for us? Please stay and make the other end for me like he used to make it for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

Bilal said to him Yeah, Baba.

00:19:44--> 00:19:54

If you freed me to be your slave to be used. That's another issue. But if you freed me to be a free person that I can do whatever I want to do, let me go.

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

He said you're free go.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

He couldn't make

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

Then,

00:20:01--> 00:20:10

only in two occasions that we know that he came back to visit Mecca, Medina at one stage, they forced him to make the other end.

00:20:11--> 00:20:17

Again he reached a shadow ana Muhammadan rasul law, he broke in tears, he couldn't finish the other.

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

The only one time that we know from his biography is Sierra Nevada.

00:20:24--> 00:20:36

Open this book right here, his biography right here. The only time that we know that he completed the other because he went to do to do jihad in Damascus in the ship,

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

when oma windy,

00:20:40--> 00:20:48

to be handed over the keys of the Kaaba, he actually said to the people, they look for Bella, bring him to me.

00:20:49--> 00:20:58

And when he brought, he was brought to him, he said, I will not leave down until you make other. I want to hear you say that. That's the only time

00:21:01--> 00:21:26

when vilella was dying, and he died in a sham, he died, fighting out the renisha the cause of Allah Subhana died in Damascus. He's actually buried the you know, when he was going through the agony of death. His wife was crying. She said he said to her, don't cry rather than a local

00:21:27--> 00:21:38

Mohammedan wasa. Tomorrow I will meet my beloved Mohammed and his companions. Shall I tell you something very interesting. There is

00:21:40--> 00:21:44

as zero mention of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in this picture,

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

as if he does not exist

00:21:52--> 00:21:57

is listen, we're not backward here.

00:21:58--> 00:22:04

We're not backward here, but this is factions. This is deceiving our children.

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

This is sending the wrong message to them.

00:22:09--> 00:22:26

Yeah, some people they argue by saying listen, this picture was meant and designed for a non Muslim audience. That's the argument at the end it's a legitimate argument. But who said that you have to downsize your heroes

00:22:27--> 00:22:42

your heroes to satisfy non Muslims yeah after the non Muslims when they presented a character called sala de Have you seen the movie? Have you seen the big you've seen that picture? It's called I think it's the what's it called

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

about the Crusades no a new one the new one

00:22:49--> 00:22:54

the new one that that came out three years ago or four years ago huh?

00:22:57--> 00:23:02

The Kingdom heavens Have you seen how they presented Salah Dean

00:23:03--> 00:23:20

they had him pray they had him speak of a law Allahu Akbar this via not accurate but who said that for me to present my characters to non Muslims I have to down play them downsize them to this

00:23:21--> 00:23:48

Who said that? You see if you want to present the folklore character go ahead we have opposite Lila Lee. I mean we have that we have some we have an Abuja dead I'm sure every we have actually some characters that came later on this is what you're after you went to prison like send the bad like you have seen the bad we have sent the bad that's a good character. Send the bad presented to them.

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

Allison, Allah Dean, we have Allah Dean.

00:23:54--> 00:24:14

If this is what you want to present, but this is no, this is no, this has nothing to do whatsoever with the character of the Lal roseola one belay for the one that we know is a Muslim to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa early he was lm.

00:24:15--> 00:24:16

Yeah, honey.

00:24:17--> 00:24:30

It's fascinating, you know, In brief, to have such a try, you know, to present

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

Muslim characters to the non Muslim world. But again,

00:24:37--> 00:24:49

be careful because Islam, the guidance, the curriculum, is the thing which changed those people. Not because of the

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

the inspiration of the, of the mother or because of their bravery law. Islam

00:25:01--> 00:25:19

These companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they used to do as much as they do. And they always used to say like, how La quwata illa. Allah, the Prophet told him that I didn't do this because of my strength, because of my power. I thought maybe that's, you know, a little bit of,

00:25:20--> 00:25:24

you know, a reflection on this.

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

And what triggered me Really?

00:25:28--> 00:25:32

The brothers, a lot of the people, especially

00:25:33--> 00:25:39

other communities, they they called, and they are asking my opinion, should we

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

let our children watch this, and especially like schools.

00:25:47--> 00:25:55

So I had to do some research. So I went, and I have done some research. And meanwhile, you know,

00:25:58--> 00:26:07

I decided also, that on the 24th of February, we have this story night for kids that I will tell the story to the kids like a

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

foster parent, a lot of brothers design a little flyer.

00:26:13--> 00:26:16

And he posted it in one of the WhatsApp groups.

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

That you seen that Sam right.

00:26:20--> 00:26:46

Of course, the brother was a little bit extreme, etc. I didn't I don't know when you look at these things, but we have some brother who designs this and so he had that logo of the actual movie. And he did what that you know that. That Excellent. So he wrote Bilal facts and fictions. So and he posted in WhatsApp, and in one of these liberal WhatsApp, let's put it this way.

00:26:49--> 00:27:04

should send it to me or, or to see, you know, but he posted the, by all the sudden, you know, I found the bashing to me, you know, she, that's extreme. That's very aggressive.

00:27:05--> 00:27:22

And I'm not getting it. The brother also boots on the on the picture the picture of Bella when he's laying down, of course, His face is not showing, but somebody's laying down. And on the top of his back, there is a huge rock. So when he used the word aggressive, I thought that he is talking about this one.

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

So I said to him, you know, why are you so uptight about this? Yummy? Is it not as extreme? That's very,

00:27:33--> 00:27:48

and I said, I mean, come on, what happened to freedom speech? You know, that's the language now. Freedom of speech is gonna stop here. I can speak against a movie, it's a major sin to speak against the movie.

00:27:49--> 00:27:58

At this time and age, come on, man. I mean, you can critique you can critique me you can, I mean, you know, that's a movie that's a human made.

00:28:00--> 00:28:44

product. I mean, you can know, he said, but you can cancel this out. But Subhanallah I kept asking him what's bothering you in that flyer? Because that little thing was so smaller that he said that thing out there. They said, You know what, insha Allah, I will flood My Media Guy 100 lashes. So I asked the guy to remove that and we repost it again. So I thought, you know, maybe that's a good, you know, subject, especially here in Colorado, you know, when, when we actually have a lot of people actually who are becoming interested in this. There is nothing wrong with that if you want to do it, but this is what you have to bear in mind when you enter that you're not going to go and see

00:28:44--> 00:28:44

below them or

00:28:45--> 00:29:17

you're going to see a warrior kind of character or movement. You know, and I said peace you know, but this is not how we should portray our companions whatsoever. Giacomo Hara inshallah will continue sola telegin next week in sha Allah I'm sorry, I understand that you came for it, but I always like to connect with the time with the challenges and just relay inshallah Allah Allah Subhana Allah.
