slama phobia is exaggerated and justified
hatred towards Islam and Muslims.
and we do have multiple manifestations of this as we speak.
naming Islam, Muslims, accusing the whole religion
for the behavior of one individual
who probably not practicing Islam.
Yani the nice truck attack last week.
This is what is told, or what was said about the individual in the Western media, that he never attended MSG.
He used to spend the majority of his time
in nightclubs. He's alcoholic. He's a drug addict.
And he eats pork. And he beside all of this, as if it doesn't matter.
And the whole religion was placed to the scene to the front,
Islam and Muslim and Muslim terror Islam and Muslims and Muslim terror.
Take the Orlando shooting.
Imagine this the month of Ramadan.
The last third of the night, a very special time.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala descends in a way that suits His Majesty.
And he calls upon the believers.
anyone seeking forgiveness, they have any request.
Can you imagine a Muslim during the month of Ramadan
during that special time,
a time actually when you're supposed to be with your family deacons for preparing for another fasting day.
Possibly bringing the head making
being in a nightclub.
Imagine this and not just a nightclub
not just a nightclub, a speciality nightclub.
And now the whole religion again is being accused.
We do see we do see some accidents. Some shooting happens at the hands of non Muslims. But they never accused their faith. They never question their beliefs.
But as soon as the person is giving a Muslim name, immediately the whole religion is being accused.
Another manifestation of this, they came out with a report that for the last 15 years
the FBI having surveillance on massages. Basically they record everything that we say Alhamdulillah This is a good hour.
And you know, they said there is nothing really major happening. That's actually their statement true. But you know, being recorded or being certainly backed up as a community in America, and more surveillance on you, in a way is not failed. But you know what, we don't have a problem with it. We don't have we would rather actually invite them to our message. We don't have a problem with this one and hamdulillah because Alhamdulillah the message that we convey in our message is the message that the West and America need to know about Islam,
not through the behaviors of individuals, whether they are wicked to begin with or whether they possess a distorted ideology of the religion.
Another manifestation of this
going to the city and getting licenses. Some of you may have seen that with a facility out there next door.
It's taken us one needs to get the city actually to give us a lot of you may assume it's financials not hungry. Let's not finance it the city.
Imagine the inspector comes and kills you
I have to see the glue that you placed on the bikes after it's covered.
Amazing when we acquired this facility, I'm giving you living examples, brothers and sisters in Islam. When we acquired this facility, we did not immediately reported to be used for a nonprofit use, so that we would be exempt from what is known to be a property tax. For the last 10 years, the previous owner of this facility, his property tax was $6,000, the highest, you know, what was our bill this year $40,000.
And specter came a lot. Colorado Muslims community sense.
Alhamdulillah we're going to court and we're trying to figure this out, we're going to tell them that this is a nonprofit usage. So we make
our brothers and sisters Khadija
after they purchased a whole land to build a machine on it.
And I'm aware of the process, they actually given them the green light that you could have a master deal. You know, now what they have to do, they have to sell that land and get another land because they wouldn't give them a permit.
And we can go on and on and on.
Another manifestation of this doll is on rallies in the United States. people standing in front of the massage it with their machine guns.
And I'm talking about Texas and what happened this year, they are not shooting anybody. But this is very intimidating, intimidating for people.
Actually, in Islam, Islam teaches us that you should not even attempt to show the weapon in Islam, you're not supposed to do this, it's haram to do this to another person.
Actually, you're guilty of the crime. Man rafaela. If he had either, whoever raises not a weapon, not a machine gun, or knife, the angels curse that person because you're threatening his peace, his security, he feels unsafe.
The top of the line brothers and sisters in Islam is the political side of this.
When we heard Donald Trump six months, seven months ago, I may not be accurate here,
basing his campaign on Islamophobia on anti Islam. Imagine
the republican White House contender makes that blunt statement on a national rather international news channel. And I'm referring to his interview with the Cooper Anderson Cooper.
Look at the statement quotes. Islam hates us.
What is left? That's a serious statement.
You see, I would say six, seven months ago, maybe he thought that this is the way to bring him to the White House. And we actually kind of dismiss that this could happen. We kind of dismiss that that this could happen. You know what? It's a reality now.
Actually, the scaling piece is not Donald Trump. No, I know Donald Trump. As soon as he gets into office. He's going to say, Listen, this was all bogus. That's all they say. And now the president of everybody, that's how they do. No, no, the alarm is here, that you got a great number of Americans supporting this. You see these guys, their feelings, their the way that they feel towards Islam and Muslim is not gonna fade away. When Donald Trump gets to office. You see Donald Trump when he takes office and telling you and say * getting serious about he's gonna come and say, oh, guys, all what I said, that's a campaign 5050 stuff. I'm a president of Muslims too. But the people who
brought him into office,
they still feel the same.
What really got my attention, and this is the reason why I'm having this hook. But today, I was in Georgia last week.
And I have to talk about that nice business. So I as I'm exploring, you know what's going on. I came across a statement which was made by the British
republican Speaker of the House whose name is Newt Gingrich, he made that statement until you and I'm quoting him, we need
to test every Muslim
in the United States of America.
And if we find out that they believe in Sharia
then we have to deport them right away.
some of you may not by the way, and I'm gonna come to this and this is the reason why I'm actually in sha Allah. This Juma and the next three Juma has four parts Sharia Dumars, I'm going to talk about the Sharia. Because I'm telling you, a lot of Muslims don't even know the meanings of the word cherry and what does it mean?
But just to give you a break, maybe some of you your focus, Spam is not long enough to stay with me. That means if you make will do you have to be reported.
Because that's your fear.
If you say La la la la Muhammad Rasulullah monotheists Mona, if you are a monotheistic, you have to be deported, if you smile, to another human being,
you have to be deported because that Sharia
did you first Ramadan this year, you will go on back after the hotbot
that Sharia, you come into Juma?
is even when the word Sharia was initially introduced
to the west, exactly like the word Jihad was introduced.
You see when you go into the classical books of the Muslims, where do we get our knowledge from? The word Jihad means for things
the top of the list jihad against yourself
to the extent that this law for some people to actually attribute a weak Hadith to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
is not authentic Howdy.
They say that when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned from the Battle of taboo. He said we came back from the minor Jihad
which is the West exclusively refer to the word with to the major jihad. The hardest is weak, so linear
and the major jihad is enough's. Simply federal comes at for some time now, four
or five 410.
Right now, you're sleeping in bed. Now you'll have to wait jihad against yourself to leave and come to the masjid to pray. That's one type of jihad.
The second type, Jihad will carefully
I'm sorry, she had the Mona feel that she had that you wait again is I'm sorry, the second time you had shaitan that you had that you waged against the whispers of Chopin.
We believe that there is jinn bad of them. Their job is to whisper to us incinerate bad thoughts in front inside your chests. In order for you to do he immediately led away
some powerful ministry Tony Turco when they are visited by this insinuation they say
that she had
the third time by the way he hadn't munafo that he had that you age again is a segment of the Muslim community who say a shadow Allah Allah Hi, Lola eyeshadow no Mohammed Rasulullah. But inside them they hate Islam and Muslims and they would love for this religion to be
wiped off the face of this earth. Now for me as a Muslim, as long as he says a shadow La ilaha illAllah a shadow under Muhammad Rasulullah I have to deal with him as a Muslim.
But I have to be what do jihad against him? What is he doing now? What is what is next? What I'm gonna do that's that you're watching him closely.
Jihad will carefully look at this, that you had again is the word that they use infidels that you had that that again is the non Muslim. But look at this now there are two thoughts
of jihad. Once it comes to the non Muslim there is a subcategory of this, that you convey Islam to him using the Quran and the Sunnah, and I'm referring the verse in Surah Furqan
he to whom be Jihad and kaviraj do curonian
and the second type is the type that you do, which is the fighting the war number one in a declared battle
again is a combatant.
he says you had that you had but when you say the word jihad in the media now, kill the Riviera, we kill the infidel, what do you find them sit for them, snipe them and that stuff. But this is what you have the same exact thing with the word ceria
when it was introduced to America,
look at our brothers and sisters in Islam. Look at the linguistic definition of Sharia to begin with to be academic a little bit Yana is not fun to be academic enough, right?
they say Sharia linguistically means a path that should be followed, a particle must akima
or a path or the path
That's the linguistic.
The technical they say what they say
how to live, conduct yourself as a Muslim,
in an individual's sphere. And as a collective sphere, level Yani
to please Allah subhana wa Taala Above all, and maintain justice, quality, peace with one another.
So sets of rules that have to be applied on an individual level, on a community level,
in order to please Allah subhana wa tada and achieve certain goals. And that would be maybe the second football. We'll talk about the holistic aims of the Sharia that this manual or these guidelines are to achieve certain objectives with some necessities, but some ohama costs it aims objectives of this.
And it includes five things just just to show you how this word you see when the word Sharia is mentioned right now raises a lot of flags. I'm sure right now we're the record this is the flags are moving up.
Just use it over the food. Sharia law, Sharia what these guys that's
why there is a lot of hysteria, anxiety,
because again, brothers and sisters in Islam, the media presented the word
to America to the west. Why do you have one segment for you? Sharia means to five things.
Number one beliefs, aka a
manners. And I started with those
because those two are the shade with all the previous prophets and messengers. Those two do not change at all.
beliefs and manners. They don't change.
The first command in the 10 commandments, you shall not take another god
before me beside me, whatever they were did, don't you dare make an image of him.
Jesus said what in the Quran? We're in Omaha boo, boo boo, boo boo. Allah is my Lord and you Lord,
worship Him. We say what
was said what do we say? A shadow Allah, Allah Illallah.
Muhammad Rasulullah believes identical from New
Ella Deanna for whom should
we send Matt Duma DeAndre brothers right. The first
melaka Manila. You have no other side the first thing. The first thing you begin with
a lot of heat
is the second meaning of lap manners. And this is the shaping
characters and having good characters have nothing to do with religions.
You know when you saw prophet Yusuf Ali Salaam was jailed in Egypt
the two inmates saw those two dreams.
Even though they were not Muslims, they were disbelievers. They were a follower of the religion of the king. They said to him, listen, you're the only one who can interpret our dreams for us. Why? In Iraq, Amina mazzini.
Beaten Evita, Omar muslimeen
tell us the interpretation of our dreams in Iraq I mean, I mean you're a good person, you have a good characters.
So those two
are shield. Number three, a bad
rituals, acts of worship.
And there is a minor variation.
We know that Jesus peace be upon him when he used to pray. We read that in the New Testament the leftover clue
that he used to blaze forehead, his forehead in the ground.
Can I ask you to do
what was Salafi Dena Salah when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to Robbie Ivan acaba eslami when he asked him, make a wish,
a companion he said to him make a wish. He said I want to be with you and gentlemen, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, help me I need to kill me against yourself with Kathy sujood make a lot of the schoolers they say what Sally and Sally make a lot of noise. We're not gonna go and just do sujood
and some Muslims mistakenly after the Salah for him to make dua he needs to do
should do is a big daddy is a bigger innovation that after
he makes such them so Allah La da de la solly pray and in this video make
a look what Jesus said.
When he prostrated This is when he found out that they are coming to arrest him.
He actually made to do and save me.
Save me. Oh.
So a little variation
schufa siyam fasting? Yeah, you had Latina Ave quotevalet camassia mukamal cookie, Dara Latina. publikum fasting is prescribed w like it was prescribed among the nations before me before you meaning the Jews and the Christians.
But then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells us what but there is a little this one distinguishment between your fasting and the fasting of the title of the book. You know what? First Lucien you can see me lil kita UCLA to suffer
what distinguishes your fasting from the fasting of the People of the Book as to who they don't have
that special for this oma
Lou Lou Reed had is the the one who was named George when they arrested him and they accused him of adultery said please can you please bring me some water I want to make one out of
the point I'm trying to make is a bar that is the third
part of the Sharia. And it is almost identical.
Like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells about pray in your shoes, but nothing over a carpet. If you bring with in a park. Keep your shoes on as long as they do not contain impurities. Why? Because the Christian and the Jews when they pray the thick of the shoes, original saliva before no solid out like this now
you're getting the point here. So this is three. Part number four of the Sharia is the contracts that transactions
And there is a little abrogation on this area to
Why? Because of the need of the time.
I tell you, for example,
at the time of Adam alayhis salam,
a brother can marry his sisters.
How are you going to maintain the lineage? the progeny of Adam how are you going to do it without this? You believe that all of us came from Adam right? Hopefully don't believe that there's a chimpanzee out there who produce other children. So you believe that Adam and Eve are the origin of mankind now Adam and Eve getting married now for the race of Adam to be maintained how it's gonna happen.
abroad brother can marry assists, but they used to do a swap
like Adam used to have so used to have a boy and a girl each pregnancy so the boy from this pregnancy marries the girl from the other pregnancy and this is by the way, how does the one of the sons got got jealous? Because one of the girls this is Israeli at Jani, we don't believe it wouldn't be like
this. One of the daughters of Iran was ugly. You're not good looking. I'm sorry to use the word I'm sorry. That's bad word to use, was not good looking. So he did not want to marry her.
He said no, I'm gonna marry my twin.
Who's beautiful. For the father Adam said listen, make.
Make a sacrifice both of you, Cain and Abel. And if Allah accepts us, us, then we're gonna change that Sharia. And if Allah rejects us, then we're gonna have to stick to the Sharia. What to Allah him never I've never done it
again, but now, we call this work incest out of
a brother marrying a sister.
The Sharia Got what?
abrogated? Because there is no need for that. These contracts. Look brothers and sisters in Islam. The last component of the Sharia is what
they call it? The penal code? The penal system?
That's what it is when you mentioned the word Sharia in front of a non Muslim right now. His mind immediately travels to cutting hands
stoning to death
killing people that's what Sharia law for them now. Exactly like Sharia.
And it's very unfortunate.
I look at this brothers and sisters in Islam. Normally, if you examine any system of law
and you exclusively look at the Penal Code lol Jessa Jean, if you look at the punishments only while the associating it with the crime from the crime, you're going to end up with a distorted view.
Like bill Alec asked me Schiff, can you talk to me about the US Constitution?
Or the US Constitution?
it executes by lethal injection, you can get five Life Life periods, the only 2525 in prison.
You did not mention the crime did you?
injection for that for what?
So you exclusively mentioned the punishment, the associating it from the crime, you're gonna end up with a distorted view on this. Add to this, like, I'll give you an example. And this is by the way, just an introduction to the series. I'll give you an example.
How does in
the penal punishment for someone who commits adultery?
The only look at stoning to this death. That's all.
Oh, you guys want to establish Sharia in America so somebody commits adultery, you stone them to death.
Let's look at it. Look at this now.
it is almost impossible to establish an evidence against someone who commits a boat.
You know what is the evidence for
But true, have seen the man going into the women. And I can be more precise than this scene that the Oregon going down
Double alley. How possible this is for, for
when the companion came to the prophets, Allah Allah said I saw my wife with a man. He said for other words, I'm gonna plug you right now. I'm gonna plug you for slendering
this is number one.
whose address with executing, let's say and that's why I want to say if we're in history of Islam,
only people who came to the ruler or to the brothel and confessing that they committed adultery
and so upon Allah
Allah He told us
to do that.
If you can find that Lee, I don't know if this is good English or a Yanni to scape, executing the punishment do it. Do that. Be sure
if there is a chance look at Matt's when he said came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Hadith and Muslim Yasser Allah Stoney I committed about what did he say to him? Get out of here.
Take him away. He's drunk. He's drunk. Take him.
Take him away is crazy.
who is supposed to implement
the criminal punishments for judiciary, often Islam, the judge, the individuals,
brothers, brothers and sisters in Islam, any text in the Quran and the Sunnah about executing the criminal punishments in the religion of Islam, the authority is being addressed with it.
Not the individuals to become a barbaric jungle, not just a jungle, a very jungle of individuals are going to execute
on their hands.
The leader and the leader appoints a call through where the person is established that he is guilty.
of now you're living in America.
If America chooses to implement these,
we're gonna say jack Hello, hello, thank you.
But if the Constitution of the United States does not allow this, there is no way you're gonna do it.
Just to show you the presence
of Sharia law
in the United States of America, legal courts, this is a coastal mahogany in two areas, only two areas and imagine getting a man and a woman married and he signs he takes the marriage certificate to the court they recognize it
because of either Sharia law marriage is a Sharia law, Sharia
law you married your wife overseas.
Whether you want to divorce her or not you someone want to divorce her. He's gonna recognize the marriage certificate that was established we
that's the only place The second area. And I remember this six, seven years back if I'm not mistaken, I had to go to Pittsburgh, brothers fighting with one another and they went to the court.
They're fighting over the machine who should be the leader like any other man like our masajid in American politics, who corrupt fat I call me and other brothers. Jani. I used to visit the community often and they said, you know sure Kareem can come and help us out. So the judge why they called me The judge said to them, you guys, Muslims, look at the judgment, you guys Muslims having an issue about a mosque, you don't have a leader in your community to figure this out. Go get a Muslim leader to resolve to resolve your conflict and I will recognize it.
For if the judge chooses, that's the only two places other than that. We follow American law. We follow the Constitution of the United States because when you came to America, you said
I live here according to the laws of the land.
Listen, I would love as a Muslim that the Sharia to be implemented completely. But if America the general public chooses this, not the small minority within America
aku Kohli has our stuff Allahu Allah.
