Brothers and sisters in Islam,
no doubt that we live in a very trying time.
We as Muslims,
a few moments ago, the inauguration of donald trump.
And, quite frankly, I'm not concerned about Donald Trump.
He's in the white house now you hardly gonna see him.
Maybe on television,
but the fact
which Donald Trump
based his campaign on, and he was able to sell it to Americans who voted him in, this is my concern.
What I'm trying to say brothers and sisters in Islam,
over 50% of America, believe
in what Donald Trump had to say about Islam and Muslims, we know that this is not true. But what I'm trying to say is, we have a lot of work to do not with Donald Trump, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to change his heart,
and this is the ultimate success, and only Allah subhanho wa Taala can do this. But I'm talking about Patricia and john,
and so on, with whom you interact.
And they believe in what Donald Trump
had to say about you.
What are you going to do?
What is your plan?
Do you have a plan?
This is my message brothers and sisters in Islam.
But before I carry on,
there is no doubt
that anything lawful and legal
in America, which can be pursued,
to stop any Islamophobic attacks.
What is whatever it is, do it
any lawful legal means, within the laws of the land, permitted by the laws of the land, anything that you can do for stops
people from harassing you, discriminating against you, you should pursue it, and you should do it.
But I'm here to present to you
a comprehensive, prophetic plan
to deal with the situation.
Brothers and sisters in Islam,
every group in the face of this earth,
they are looking for one thing,
what is known to be power
being empowered an earth
the word which is used in the Quran,
that you are empowered meaning that you have a place.
Brothers and sisters in Islam
this term or this word, and its derivatives,
in a chapter called Yousuf
chapter number 12 of the Quran in two places.
And if you pay attention to what I'm about to say, just in two minutes, you will grasp the essence of my hope by today. So you don't have if you want to sit around and wonder, but the next few minutes are extremely important to understand what I'm trying to say.
Can you imagine Tamkeen
for the use of a chapter called use of twice
In verse number 21
and verse number 56 of the chapter.
So chapter 12,
verse number 21 and verse number 56.
The second one, the content
of the story makes sense.
But the first one, a lot of the scholar stuff at it.
Let me share with you the first one, which is verse 21.
was called lady Stella who me Mr. Ali marotti. acronym, as
the one who purchased him from the slave market in Egypt, took him home, he delivered him to his wife, and he said, take a good care of him.
This boy will be like our son, or he will benefit us in one way or another.
The context is really
You know what the context is?
Yusuf Alayhi salat wa salam
was in Philistine Palestine
a Muslim environment
living a normal life.
Hadith ebihara Ravi, Allah one.
The companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him this question we are a school of law, or messenger of Allah. Men, Aquila, munez, who is the most noble or the novelist of all people?
Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam given the Quranic answer in Accra macoun in de la jolla.
Indeed, the most honorable, the novelist amongst you are those who possess the
righteousness and piety, consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala the companion said, Yara Allah, messenger of Allah lenise
we're not asking we know this one. We're not asking about this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them
a blue yaku
a blue is half a blue Ibrahim
al carry ignore Karina Abdul Kareem Abdul Karim, a prophet,
the son of a prophet.
His first grandfather is a prophet, and his second grand grandfather is a prophet, rather the father of all the prophets.
You can't have a noble lineage than this noble
Secondly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
indeed use and his mother and the scholars they say his mother he in reference to Sarah, his grandmother actually
Half of the beauty of the creations not the human.
So we're talking about extremely noble linear.
We're talking about extremely handsome good looking man.
Bees being sold in slavery in the market in Egypt.
being taken as a slave and placed in a house to serve a woman
and then Allah subhanho wa Taala says and thus we empowered you.
What is the empowerment here?
What can daddy cannot can tell us.
So they stopped at this one.
The context of the second one makes sense
when he was in jail,
and he was presented with the dream
which the king saw
Seven healthy cows, devouring seven sick ones.
And he given the Egyptians a master plan to deal with drought and financial crisis.
And the king requests his release.
And after he refused at first, in order to clear his record, from simply allegations,
he finally came out, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says waka Delica McKenna values
and thus we empower the use of in earth.
The question brothers and sisters in Islam
that I'm presenting to you, what is the wisdom that Allah subhanho wa Taala? use the word Tamkeen with the first one, you want to know why you want to know the answer to this, because Allah Z's loved him
as his love
for you to have empowerment
you must must get empowered here first.
You must receive the empowerment in the hearts of people.
You know, when America during the Iraq War, used to send the army there. They used to say use a very good line said this is a war of hearts and something hearts and something.
hearts and minds.
That's exactly. You see when he saw him, he loved him.
Brothers. This is an extremely hard working
But I'm addressing people who mean business here.
I'm telling you, the only resort we have as a Muslim community in America but pay attention. I already did this. I said, if there is any legal lawful means, but I'm telling you that is old. And the solutions and the pattern which will take care of our situation in America is this pattern
is to have the caliber of
the character of you
that America will love us
of the Islamophobic
behaviors, attacks, schemes, whatever you want to call it.
I'm talking about developing of good character.
Look, Egypt was not a Muslim land like America
use came from a Muslim land.
spread Islam in Egypt, one one man show
but through what
his noble, his nobility.
I guess there is a term for this called the s and
Subhana Allah, because listen at the end of the day.
I said a moment ago that
factions groups people are looking to empower themselves. You're not empowering
You're empowering the dean for law.
He's trying to give that
blue your character
And this would mean to forgive,
to let go.
Listen, listen. It's easy to lose one's temper.
The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam says ladies Sasha de dooba surah.
The strong person
is not the one who yells loud.
Even in gang language, just go and check the gang. The gang they say the weakest person
The gang is the loudest, the guy.
But the strong
is the one who hardly speaks.
Ladies says shady,
nafsa who are in the
pub, the strong one is the one who is able to control himself when angry.
This is what we need to do in America, brothers and sisters in Islam, to change to win the hearts and minds and souls again, not of Donald Trump, the only one who can change Donald Trump is a law now, because power is a fitness.
Only a law we can ask Allah to change his heart. But I'm talking about your co workers. I'm talking about your colleagues. I'm talking about anyone you interact with.
You have a challenge.
How to let them have a good
perspective about Islam and Muslims a good impression about us. And this will help our life in America in general.
And brothers and sisters in Islam.
I'm not asking you to do something that was not done before.
This was the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
that there is a man in Mecca who claims to be a messenger.
A Buddha was worshipping Allah subhana wa Taala, according to the middle of Abraham Ali salam, and he used to live in a distance dry, distant place from Mexico.
So he called upon his brother and
he said, Your Honor is
there is a man in Makkah called Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who's claiming to be a prophet and messengers. Go and check him out.
When he went to Mecca pay attention, Mecca, Medina, Mecca, Mecca, we know that 10 years of oppression that 10 years of the top of the line of Islamophobia.
I'm not talking about Donald Trump, I'm talking about Abu
Abu lahab. Top of the line
psychological attacks. Go and check.
Oh, nice. By the way, you
kept an eye on the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Like I see VLANs camera.
And at the end, he went to his brother and he submitted a report made of one sentence
you know what is written in that report? What?
I saw a man who's commanding good character.
This is a killer.
This is a killer brothers and sisters in Islam.
Hola. Hola. mala
and this is what you should have did.
Initially, you have to be more specific with Allah subhana wa Taala. And explain what Allah was
in the question of gibreel, to Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you feel Allah as if you see a law,
consciousness of Allah
and the situations
when this beautiful prestegious women locked all the doors
and she beautified himself herself to him,
by the way, the scholars
they came up with 12 to 15 reasons
committing adultery with this woman. Well, he did not. He did not approach her.
But they came up with so many reasons.
and we know that sexual drive at that age
She's a beautiful woman.
She is her.
She is his mistress.
She owns him.
He's a stranger. When you're a stranger, you get to do crazy things. That's why people travel far away to do the crazy things. They don't do it around the
sheet shut the door closed, nobody sees
Hey telecomm bola de la
ma de la
I can do it.
but again a
consciousness of Allah
or sn in the event that would allow that you pray to God first.
It doesn't help that.
If it is just
that's the problem we have a lot of Muslims will pray. We have a lot of Muslims will pass. But look at the character.
Look at the character.
Jani, the ideal thing they tell you he always asked if this is daddy.
He would not eat.
But he would eat the flesh of his brother just like that without even asking.
Well backbiting is like eating the flesh
of your brother.
Yeah, you're Latina. mangostana buka Filomena.
coolala Murphy Mater.
That's the problem we have with Islam and Muslims. There is a split between
and the religion.
To the extent that you find Muslims actually making that statement, they say, Yeah, I'd rather deal with Christians and Muslims now.
Do business transactions with with truth.
I'm not. I'm not condoning this, by the way.
I'm not condoning that's a that's an awful statement to make. But this is beside the point. But what I'm trying to say is because of that character, the honesty of a Christian his belief came out
well, I'm tired of
hearing the truth. But you believe that what are not coming out because of the character
that's what I'm trying to say. And symbols in
your character brings out your beliefs.
Woman accent Oh, Colin manda. Illa LA, me la sala hawala in any meaningful Muslim.
That is it
because of time here, I don't wanna cross my time.
Once it comes to dealing with people,
and good character brothers and sisters in Islam,
if you really want
to change the hearts, the mind the souls of the people around you, even Muslims By the way,
I just want to tell you that there are more Islamophobia amongst the Muslims than the non Muslims
will lay there are Muslims who suffer from slama phobia then the Muslims
stay away from the
there is more Islamophobia in the mosque praying five times a day. That's too much.
What's wrong with you?
What do you will listen who you be listening to.
they tell you the three beautiful things.
The three beautiful things and the three of them were mentioned in the Quran.
A sabula. Jamie
the beautiful patients
a softball Jamie the beautiful forgiveness.
Beautiful, letting go.
And if those do not work, Alhaji region
patience with the
Patricia and John's have been watching Fox News day in and day out.
That's how they know about you as a Muslim. That's how they received the message of Islam.
Now, how are you going to counter this with an attitude of rotations
and this is what you get
thrown in the will he sat out there waiting for a lot to save him a slave in the market he was out there patients

But you complain to who?

I'm only going to complain to Allah. I'm not gonna whine about my life and
make dua for Donald Trump that Allah will change his heart make dua for America that Allah will change the heart and be patient.

Let the three
beautiful pardoning beautiful forgiveness that you don't do. You don't repeat. When you forgive somebody and you want to do beautifully you don't repeat if somebody did something wrong to you. And he comes I apologize. No problem. It's fine. It's fine.
But I forgot.
Forgot. It's okay. We all make mistakes. No problem.
Iovine, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he came back to Makkah after he was expelled for
What do you think I'm gonna do to you?
He's telling the people

Brothers and sisters in Islam.
This is the prophetic clan,
This is a long term plan.
a disclaimer. I'm not asking you to be passive. About means within your capacity within the laws of the land. To stop any aggression or any transgression or any abuse please do. You shouldn't be silenced. But this will be the everlasting plan to deal with the situation. And I'm telling you if each Muslim in America can change one Americans perspective about this Dean about this religion. You will see
what will happen with
a lot of people or businesses
I'm telling you, this is the best time to give Dawa in America and in the West. This is the best time to talk about Islam. But not with the tongue, the tongue, the tongue through your character.
Through your smile. Your positivity

law, they always add the Hulu with the with
That is why they always say menza Kafeel Hulu.
If you want to see someone who plays like you, fast like us, he does exactly what you do. If you want to know who's better look at the character.
If they are better and character than you, that means that quality of their beliefs are much better.
And this is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam himself did. Look,

Another reason By the way, they said in closing in Sharla

Likewise, your character
