It's artificial anyways.
So, we know we have dinner tonight. And we're very excited. But you know, I, I have a dear brother I love for the sake of Allah. You know, and,
I think all the issues that we have,
it can be resolved. If we manage to do this, if we can take the whole community together to hatch
and we go and perform highs together. I'm telling you, you don't know what that does when you perform highs together. You know, this is why I have this bond with this brother
is a place where if you want to bond with somebody insha Allah.
I don't have dinner tonight. So we're gonna make this quick. We're not going to take a lot of time. But a lot of you may have met Dr. Hassan Salah before Mashallah, he has his own, you know, community there in vine land. That's the name right vine land in the border with Philadelphia.
And I visited them
so many times, Mashallah. And Dr. Hassan actually came and visited me in Colorado. last couple of weeks, he was there helping us out with the fundraising. So inshallah we're gonna have him say a couple of words, whatever you feel like, yeah, inshallah and then I will address you a challenge we can work on the microphone a little bit, yes, we can fix it inshallah. So whatever you feel like about brotherhood want to talk about brotherhood, you know, about, you know, getting together and working out our differences in Sharla.
and all that, I gotta say that I'm humbled by that he goes on to
Thank brothership getting him to allow me this good opportunities to say a couple of words, just a couple of words, that I'm so happy to be back here. I've been here for almost a year to see the beautiful faces I have been with before and I we're all brothers in Islam this message it is my message, it's boiler messages, your messages, actually the all these messages the House of Lords prioritize our houses and we are as a ward, then we are the server. These are all our
dimensions are the houses of almost no data and you're not calling on any other entity any other diety with a loss of data in dimension starting there. We have to recognize these messages as being ours. So, there is nothing worse than somebody who say this is my message, this is your messages. And this is start to have a separation among the believers pregnant believers of like affiliation different desperation, which is not good. Walsh cannot
meet us brothers and he is the one who brought us together was from everywhere from every color every race, otherwise we wouldn't have been together last time it says
our law the
law and foster mental audio Jimmy and I laughed.
At speeding Tupac horserace, they are the last Renata is the one who brought us together
In the hearts of one man, and he told ron paul's awesome if you were to spend every penny in this land everything in this land, you wouldn't be able to bring them together almost panatela brought them together. And this is the bottom line. And just remember that our power is nothing money. Our power is not in authority. Our bar is our existence together as a soloist pathauto homosassa
never shut down a regime Yeah, you're never in a hospital a lot. Woman at the back I mean, then will mean that he ally sufficient for him. But the believer the believers are also very, very important as a power for him. They are believers are the ASVAB that you see on the most current data has is behind these as well behind the means. So the means will bring us together we try our best, and we seek refuge in almost every bit now. This is a good news that I wanted to give you before I turn the mic to shift. Rather Dr. Kay and Dr. Karim.
We had a big victory in violin in the federal court.
Couple of days ago, a federal court local
federal court dismissed a case a federal case at the city of Wyoming filed against the Environmental Protection Agency of New Jersey for not backing them up in their decision to hold our project. And the state of New Jersey filed the motion of dismissal our attorney did and the federal court granted the dismissal emotion. Now the City of London is cornered there. They are held responsible for what they have done to us Legos for over five years. And they came back and talked to our 3020 minutes after the decision said what do you guys want lovely they want to set up. We want to
give victory to every Muslim and again one of your messages I see brothers beautiful brothers come to pray with us just this morning to tell you that one oma, I have a dear brother, voto
chicken even knows him he says I my immense in this
in that I follow our three I said who's the first one he said she's getting what we need is number one.
Why I said Why?
He said because he doesn't speak except of the lead. He doesn't say except and then he said morphemic number two he said somebody else but this is the hungry let's get in here and I want to hear
his level of error. Without further delay this JK
does not lock out on the personal salon. And by the way they are talking about the school not the machine. They are trying to open the school. So operate the school inshallah.
My intention is and I don't know if the microphone can be, you know, fixed
is to present the story to you tonight I want to be like an entertainer, more of an entertainer.
Because we have a lot of young men and possibly young sisters in the back. So possibly we can get the message across to them. And with that entertainment, I want to direct your attention to the common challenge which we have as a Muslim community living in the West.
is compiled feels like a Muslim
Hadeeth abbia here So hi, roomie.
I love your loved one.
And so Pamela, the story A lot of you know it, and I actually made a picture of it. They call it the boy and the king who asked them that picture the boy and the king. Nobody.
There was a picture of cartoon while you didn't watch that.
The boy and the king No.
Which really if you want to go home and review this, just open up blue Cathy's
Deaf sea of Surah Al bhuj surah rouge
What's up that hill rouge while Yo mama road washer hidden Mama's hood cotulla aha when
the story begins with the scene
of a saucer
and we know sorcery
is using the unseen powers
to have an advantage over the rest of the people.
You simply communicate with the jinn that disbelieving jinn
in order to work with you.
We believe that
in order to harm people
or attract people to a devious way of Islam,
or have people disbelieve in Allah subhana wa dot, that's what sorcery is.
And the attention here, gin, that is believing gin will not serve you if you're a sorcerer. Unless
The only one we know that Jin was working for him, without compromising his belief is who profits will amen? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala subdued the jinn to him.
wamena Genie, mania mailloux beignet a D, B is neurotic B.
So a sorcerer is a cactus.
And not only by the way that you tell the genie that I McAfee know, they want your coffee to be in action.
Like they demand you to urinate, for example, on the Muslim
or take the most half to the bathroom. And
step in the most half, you have to speak actually disbelief. And you have to serve that agenda to to actually get people to disbelieve.
So there was the sorcerer who's working for a king.
Now, the king somehow convince the people that he is God, he is to be worshipped. With the help of the who, with the help of who?
guess who's going to have this combination towards the end of time? Who's going to be a sorcerer. And he's gonna demand people to worship him at the same time Who?
Who, who said, the Antichrist. Now how the Antichrist is going to get to you and convince you that he is God. He uses the jinn
in multiple Hadees that he would actually bring back to life.
Your parents in a forum
and they will speak to you son, this is your God worship Him.
That he uses the jinn, deception, lies. And that's why By the way, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us what to do when when you know that jet is in town, what should you do? Don't Don't go there because he will get to you.
Because of these powers, which Allah enabled him to have to test us
for this king
use to command the table to worship him.
And he would show them his powers through the sorcerer. And through gin and sorcery.
Now, when did this story took place? When did the story take place?
Three to 400 years after Prophet aiza alayhis salam was raised up Don't say died because we don't believe Prophet Isa died right? We believe that don't say died, right?
Don't say that. After he was raised up
to Allah subhana wa Tada.
this king also issued a decree that whoever
refuses to worship Him. He is to be executed.
So all the believers
Specially the learn of them ran away to the desert and they built what we know. monasteries or sanctuaries. That's why we call them monks.
So they run away and they stayed in these homes in the desert away from the people because they know if they get caught, they will be executed.
so far, the sorcerer has been doing great job.
The sorcerer is getting very old, and he's about to die.
He comes to the king warning him, listen,
I'm getting old.
And if I die, the people will discover that you are a liar.
You're not a true God.
What can I do?
I want children
to teach them sorcery. And I will make the best of them to be the chief sorcerer.
So what you need to do is you bring me the children, so I can teach them how to exercise sorcery. And out of them, I will choose the best boy who will lead.
You see that's where the focus is.
Pay attention here. That's where the focus is.
Of course, the king being afraid that his dominion will vanish.
If the sorcerer dies and his skills will be buried with him. Right away. He brought him the children to that sorcery school.
Imagine the sorcery school school of sorcery. School of Mines School of Medicine, sorcery, school, public schools.
what our children learn in public school. What they learn no God.
That's what they learn.
Your children go to the public schools to learn that you can live without God. Because there is a separation between God
and what you do with one we're not interested in talking about God here. God doesn't exist.
You can conduct your life without God. That's what they teach them day in and day out.
And then a lot of the parents expect their children once they grow up and they teenage that they're gonna become shoo.
When you have sent him for 15 years, 13 years, day in and day out. God doesn't exist guy. By the way, you're a monkey. And you became a that's what they learn. Day in and day out.
Are we good so far?
I'm telling you, you guys gonna forget about dinner. Once the story is about to me.
All right. They tell me a good storyteller. They tell me I don't know, fella to
Actually, that's true. I mean, I hear the story from I heard one story for for 17 years.
Every year and has every time is different than every time and enjoy.
So the work is done. The kids are there.
He selected this smart young boy and he said to him you're gonna come to me learn sorcery from me.
So this boy wakes up in the morning
and he is walking towards
the sorcery school to receive his sorcery lessons.
He had to walk a long way.
And Subhanallah as he is walking. He ended up hitting this shape. And I'm sorry, I'm using terms that really are not in the habit but I'm trying to connect you with now.
Imagine your son is waking up in the morning and going to the public school and then he hears that shape somewhere is hiding. And if me the legal kita
Calum had a call center attraction for the intuition for the fitrah. Especially with the kids. That's why they want your children
because they are the easiest to move,
to change, to brain wash to brainstorm, they want them.
So this young boy, he became so attracted to this voice, he followed the voice. And he found the sheath. is not the shaker it is among but I'm just, he found this Imam hiding somewhere and he's reading the revelation.
Who are you? And what are you doing here?
Don't tell anybody about me, please, because they find out about me.
This guy, I don't believe he is God, there is God.
And what are you reading? This is the revelation. It's the first time I hear this stuff. You know.
He sat with him for a long time he forgot about sorcery.
He actually the shape was so attractive, attractive in his explanation that the boy forgot that he had an appointment.
Or he woke up and he said, Man, I'm late for my socialization. So he started rushing. When he arrived, he found a very angry and upset sorcerer. Why are you late?
He flagged him, he beaten him up.
And he said, You know what? Not because you're late. You're going to be released early, you're going to stay the same amount of time you're supposed to stay for the lesson. So he ended up going home after midnight. This was looking for him. Because they didn't have text messaging at the time. Barely. I'm late. No didn't have that. His father went crazy that my son, it's almost midnight and he's not here. When he arrived though. He beat him up again.
He got beaten up. What
do you think this boy will go back to the ship?
I'm asking you.
You know he did.
That tells you that the ship was so good.
The Masjid was so accommodating
the masjid was an attraction.
You see, and that's the message that I really gotta send to you here.
You know, it's, it's, it's so it's so depressing.
When our children cannot have fun in our
massages in our
if we're gonna live in America, and if we're gonna protect the identity and the religion of our children, they have to feel this way about the machine that way. Imagine this boy he was beaten up twice. No one in his sound mind will go back.
He still went back because he liked it. He liked the map. He liked the sheet.
He liked the machine. He liked the environment.
You see, he didn't go and say, Oh, these guys fight all the time. I'm not gonna go back there. No, he didn't say that.
You see, these guys are you know, they're not accommodating us. They you know, they yell at us. You know, they know. That's, you see, you're competing with another system out there. We'll see. We have a lot of money. We have a lot of attraction.
So he came back to the sheriff and said, Listen, you know, I really enjoy learning but I got beaten up twice. You know, then he said to him, listen, we are now at a time.
You could actually Yani, first of all, you don't have to stay that long story short of time. And if you're a little bit late, just say you know, my father did it and you know, just so we got him out of trouble.
Imagine brothers and sisters in Islam, and this is for your information for your information, the condition of your children and my children. This boy every day is learning how to believe in Allah and how to disbelieve in Allah
This is what your children are going through.
And they get the other half whether you like it or not. There is something called now Why? Five? Why? Five?
Google just, they will get it, they will get it in school, they will get it into the street. They will get it in the Yahoo, they will get it in the Facebook, they are getting the 100% they are getting the wickedness 100% your children? No, no, well, I have a five years old, he holds that phone.
Like he he was trained in the womb of the mother how to deal with it.
Sometimes he shows me things that I don't know how to do them. And I don't know, how did he learn that?
Now, if you want to make your child happy, I tell my son, if you finish Surah taquile, I'm gonna give you the phone for five minutes, the surah is done.
And if I want them to memorize it without the phone, maybe a couple of hours kneeling back and forth.
So they are getting the parts.
Why are you as a parent, depriving them from the truth?
are you as a community, depriving them from hearing the other side of the story.
That's what we're doing.
we're grading I'm actually dyeing my hair, this is all great.
We can do whole a lot. Now. If there is a hole for this oma is in the next generation.
And that's how the change happens.
If there is a change that is going to take place in the next oma in the end, then that is the next generation this oma is the next generation is that children. And this is the common challenge which we have, which we must rise above all our differences to deal with it
as a Muslim community.
So somehow, Allah, this little boy, this young man every day, learning how to disbelieve in Allah and how to believe in Allah. Those two cannot sit in one heart, you know.
And that's really, you know, the, the hope that we have that if you instill in your children, at least the foundation of Islam, the foundation of Eman one day, one day, they will figure it out.
So this boy, one day he is walking and he said, you know, he's talking to himself and saying, Man, those are two different things. This guy is teaching me how to use the powers of the jinn how to associate others in worship with Allah, and this guy is telling me the power is in the hands of Allah. And if you want to call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala.
which way to go? I'm confused.
I don't know which way to go.
Those two cannot be together.
So have a law. That's where Allah guides
for the people to go about the work, they would need to cross over a bridge. A lion came and set on that bridge. So they could not go about the work.
Now the God The king has to solve the problem he called the one who the sorcerer, come on. I'm the god I'm supposed to take care of this stuff. Oh, I trained this guy. This guy has been already in my sorcery school. He should take care of that.
But the voice of Hanalei, who had a different agenda.
So he was called to take care of that line so that people can go about their business. But then his way out there.
He said too much to himself.
And leiomyoma Today, I will find out
umodel ra Hibi. A hub bu Ilan law, I'm gonna say
which one Allah loves most. What the shift is teaching me or what the sorcerer is teaching. Remember, now the sorcerer assumed that he will use sorcery. You will use the gin to get rid of this line. But he said no. I'm going to pull up an AMA
he raised his hand up, and he made this dry
Allahumma Oh Allah. In Ghana Amala, Hebei, a hotbed la kemin Marisa
a fourth the she has been teaching me is the truth.
And you love it more than what the sorcerer has been teaching me. And he grabbed a pebble a small rock, fuck to her the dead backfill that line with this rock, show me a sign basically
say solid is the hierarchy there. Show me, show me the way.
You know when you fo when you see guidance from Allah, Allah will give it to you when you see. So pan Allah He killed that lion with that right?
At this time he knew.
He said, Now I'm gonna give my life for this.
You know, he became so excited that he discovered the truth
that Allah is in control, not the jinn.
Not these evil powers which are there to test you.
Out of excitement, he ran away to his ship to the monk.
And he told him what happened.
Immediately his teacher said to him, my son now you're much better than me. Because the word got around all the you know that little boy who was just graduated from the high school. He's a good disbeliever man the guy he announced on his Facebook page that he's an atheist. You know Is he used the Jin d? The word got around that he can actually do all types of things you know?
But the boy knows that the one who helped him that day was a massive Hannah Darla, not the gym.
So the teacher said to him, you're going to be tested big time.
But now you have the chance to tell people about Allah Subhana Allah
Subhana Allah that word got around.
We're almost done here.
Someone used to sit next to the king and his Jani Shula is counsel who used to be blind.
So the word got to the king that Oh, that little boy that the sorcerer trained he succeeded in his first mission today and the people are really impressed about him.
so this blind man learned that this boy
could cure him. So he collected a lot of gold and silver and cash and money. And he went to the little boy look at this now Echo, ma ha ha una laka agma in Antiochus at any
young boy all this money is for you if you kill me
if you restore my sight my vision again
look at our now look at the difference between the people who call to ship and the people who call to the Hey, look. Listen. In Nila. oshi ahead. I don't kill nobody. What a kinilaw highest fee. Allah is the one who cures for in anti mandibular if you choose to believe in Allah now that came
the hour to LA I would call upon Allah
and if Allah wills he will kill you it's between you and Allah
that's how the Dow that's and that's the difference between the sheep you know who doesn't abuse
some people you know some machete guys I know the The Greatest Name of Allah by the way I have access to the Greatest Name of Allah nobody knows the greatest name if
somebody told me in one of the messages that she was setting Okay guys, you know the owner know the Greatest Name of ally I know it and you know this is the name that you if you use when you ask Allah for anything Allah will give it to you. So when you say that, that you have access to the Greatest Name of Allah, what are you calling people to do?
Why men are often if you go to someone who claims that he knows the unseen
and you believe him, you're no longer a believer. Why? Because you're supposed to believe who knows the unseen who.
Even if somebody accidentally told you something that happens to be true. This doesn't qualify him to be, you know, Knower of the unseen Nobody does that.
That's the difference here. So panela he made that one
His vision was to
jellies willy nilly. That's his name.
So the following day he is going back to the king now he could see a Salam aleykum The king was so surprised. And he asked him, oh, you can see what happened. Who restored your site? He said a law.
The king said You mean me?
a tuxedo Anna, you mean? I said, Allah, my Lord and your Lord.
Stop lying man.
That way, and by the way, the nations before us. They didn't have that license. That break what is the breed that you could actually say I don't believe in order to protect your life didn't have that.
You see that license man kafa billahi min badie email and e 11. Nuclear coloboma. Eman applies to us.
That means if you are to die for our aid, you cannot pronounce the hint you cannot give up the heat. You cannot say I disbelieve unless you this belief.
So you will be willing to give up your life. Imagine He punished the guy so much. Until he told him who restored his site was that I have this young boy this young boy did not use the gym.
So he cut him into two halves with a soul. He fallen down like this. He didn't give up the heat.
They brought the boy
he wanted to execute him right away. He said no, no, no, no, you can do that. This boy now. Everybody in town
think that he is the coming sorcerer.
If you kill him like that.
Like we say you're going to make a monster out of him. So you got to design his death that it's natural.
So he called upon some of his Gods by the way they brought the shape and he was executed to that's part of the Hadees
but now it's the boy
Gods take him to the top of the mountain
chain and when you reach the hill top throw him so he fallen down that's accidental design death
So they took him to the top of the mountain and this little boy raises his hand up there. What
do I have
to say I love this life if there is somebody who was bluffing out there to give you a hard time and you don't know what they're doing online is it Mr. Allahu makini whom be mashi tawakoni fashion
so further let me leave it to Allah don't say Oh Allah kill them. No, no. Oh, Allah suffice me protect me from them any way that you want.
It's up to you.
The mountain shaped earthquake, every one of them fallen dead. acceptable. Guess what? The boy knows that he's in a mission he wants to save the whole room.
So he walks back to the king said he wanted to kill me. It's not gonna work. He didn't run away.
He knew that maybe death. His death could be the reason for the oma to wake up.
So the king became so angry and furious, that his plan did not work. So he called upon other group of Gods take him to the sea now
put him on a ship
for our rainbow v.
And the depths of the sea. Throw him
The same thing
he needs the DA
Allahu mfine him be Masha.
Allah protect me from them any way that you want.
And however you want.
A storm erupted.
The boat slipped. Everybody drowned. The boy actually walked in water.
Some of the earlier
karma, bad karma to somebody who was referring people to who
you know, Allah believe in Allah and this could happen to you. I mean, he's not using it to deceive people to call people to his worship. So we went back to the king I said, Listen, you
Trying to get rid of me.
If you want, you have to follow my plan.
I want you to call all the people in one place that went out
and tie me to a trunk of a tree
and take one of the errors,
and before you shoot that arrow
say with a loud voice, imagine the guard now the guard will say what this means.
I'm shooting this arrow in the name of Allah.
The Lord Who?
This is the guard supposed to be with the guy
in front of his wife, his dummy you know, you know, where people sometimes just
The boy died as a Shaheed she had a
the Shahid is the only person who doesn't live in the grave. He leaves the donia straight through
imagine Close your eyes are sitting here in Atlantic City with the brothers who, who love one another for the sake of Allah. Imagine open your eyes. Oh, gentlemen.
You know, he could engender that's why some Allah in the story of Abdullah
who was killed in the battle
and he had like seven girls.
So they came when they found out that the father was was killed. They came crying and really feeling bad.
The Prophet looked at jabil and he said to me
till your sisters by law
no one Allah spoke to without the veal except your father.
Of course after he died
and he said to him, yeah, Abdullah.
the man gnarly, Virgin, this Make a wish.
He said to Abdullah Mika wish, what do you want? You're not obliged to haram said the father of jet. You're a more I want to go back to the dunya to be killed again.
Then to go back and to be killed again. And to go back and to be killed again. I want to experience that feeling over and over again. Imagine you leave this dunya Close your eyes. Gender.
You know, imagine that feeling.
Allah said to him, no. This one No, because Allah decreed that you don't come back to the dunya is not it's not gonna work.
that's the Shahada. He said, we live up the moment that this boy killed every member of this community discover that this king is lying to them all the time and there is a true God. They went down in prostration. And each one of them said, Look, man Nabila here abou lamb. We believe in Allah, the Lord of this little boy.
Imagine if and that's the will of Allah, Allah, Allah. Imagine a boy, the whole kingdom, placed all the resources to produce a catheter out of him.
He was the reason for the whole oma to become Muslims. You never know. One of these children we cultivate and our Islamic schools will be that little boy, you never know. And it doesn't have to happen through martyrdom could happen for other things, you know, for
the king became so furious, and he was the final scene in the story. And he decided to dig trenches, and booth these trenches on fire. And he would bring each member of this community
and would give them the choice you believe I'm your God, or your burn to the
no one of them given up though he they would jump, Shahada.
They would jump they would not give up their hate. And and look at this, look at this beautiful scene which is at the very end of the story, a mother
and imagine a mother who had her baby infant.
Now, they took her infant away and they are about to throw her
so the mother looks back.
Who's gonna take care of my baby
she actually considered compromising
to be with her baby. Look at what you said before law. That's really the speed that steadfastness comes from Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala and mead had been baby infant speak in the cradle
you know the baby infant spoke
to the mother. Yeah, Mama, my mother. Booty be firm for a nickel.
You are in the truth. Go.
Brothers and sisters in Islam. It's a very entertaining story. And this story, by the way explains a whole chapter towards the end of the Quran was
kill boo. One Leo mill Mahmud washa Hedy
Curse the people who dug the trench totally cursed.
Hotel in San Luis, low enough havapoo and
waku when they need that fire. It Luma hukou, the wahoo, mala, Luna, mini Nash, whoo hoo, Wah ma na Komm, Im illa
Billah Hilah Aziz al Hameed.
haka. This is the common challenge that we have.
Well, I, I'm very sorry to say this, a lot of us.
A lot of us
to enjoy America,
and to live in America.
Listen, it's fun living here, I tell you, it's,
I mean, some of us actually, I kept living with that dream that I'm gonna go back and live in, I went back there a lie one month, I couldn't even handle it. I couldn't even live there. Somehow, they systemize you here in a way that you can just live in America.
But now, the only issue here, a lot of Muslims, they offer their children as a full body to stay here.
They know that their children are losing Islam,
they notice that they are compromising the religion.
And that's where we need to wake up as a community as parents to get together, work out our differences. And
I want to close here because you have to have dinner, but I want to give you some updates. You know, we're still at this stage of assessing the situation, you know, you need to allow me time, you know, jumping into conclusions and trying to you know, it's going to take some time, and inshallah I'm planning another visit on the 28th, we've realized, ah, by the end of this month, hopefully, inshallah, but I'm still at the stage of assessing meeting with people and talking to these parties and talking to these parties. But the one thing which we decided to do is we have to support the existing buddy, which is running the community, all parties have to give hill to the board, which
They are the individuals who are actually running the community, right now. We have to support them, we have to stand by them. Insha Allah.
I said, you have to do my something which I will say again,
you may come up with the best bylaws, the most eloquent, the most will word it but if the hearts are not ready to,
you will always find the language to manipulate.
And I use the example of the Quran, imagine kalaba law can be manipulated.
kalama kalevala can be manipulated. Fox News, they use the verse kill the infidels, right? It's in the Quran, he can deny it, but it's manipulated is taken out of context. So we need to go with a slower base once it comes to that and I see brother Matt, Dave, the in charge of the Committee of the you know, that's what I advise that we need to take our time regarding the bylaws and study the what we wanted to do.
To meet with the people meet with the parties in Sharla. But for now, for now, to make this community function and work, we need to stand by the body, the body which is the Shula, which we have, strengthen them, support them. They are not perfect. They're gonna make mistakes, why not help them?
They need to start committees in sha Allah and all of this meeting later. I know a lot of you have concerns about the school.
I heard a lot of concerns about the school. I have met with brother MACD today and the brothers who are in charge of operating the school and running the school and we are contemplating some solutions in sha Allah possibly be in later Allah will share it with you
very soon. Yeah, you know, you're gonna have to make the change there is no such a thing that you know somebody who's going to come from Colorado or dr hazard is gonna come from violent to know you will have to make the change and remember, the condition the condition which Allah placed for us to see the change what is in Allahu Allah, your high yield or Mab, your COVID Minh had their yo yo ma v unfussy Allah subhanho wa Taala will not change the condition of a community unless they change from within.
You have to change from within, for inshallah Allah, Elijah Allah, let's have that spirit of optimism, you know, be optimistic, the believer is always optimistic, inshallah, we're gonna build on what we have, and we're gonna better it and be even Elijah Allah, it will be something that is promising. I always believed I'd been visiting this community for years, I always believed that there is potential in this community. And there is, but if we leave our differences aside, and I want to tell you, I want to tell you, a lot of us are only looking down and they are afraid to lose what they have. But you know, if you look up and see the bigger picture, one law, we're gonna need
more than the people who are empowered to help us with that bigger picture, we can have a bigger picture for the oma and everyone can be in that picture, not just individuals, but these brothers need to look up to the bigger picture, not to look down and be afraid for what they have, they need to let go of that look up and be part of the bigger picture in sha Allah be malaita Allah I'm leaving tomorrow and please forgive me if I fallen short in and disappointing you but I need more time to assess the situation and and work with the different brothers and have more meetings and inshallah, but the will not want to just sleep on this. We need to work with the existing body that
the board that we have. You may have differences with them. So what you know, have differences with them, but work with them. Help them out in Sharla jacumba lo hayleigh subhanak Aloma the humbucker Chateau La La Land as the Furukawa They call him the letter blindness. We have questions in Sharla if you want to have Santa Monica
I'm the first one inshallah I promise to Barbie dolls, my brother's daughter in Matura. But are they ready to work in the community without any outside influence? And number two, in the in charge of who have to be I mean, that then
because the community is confused, there are two three brothers claiming that we have to connect with them
and also without any influence or outside influence are they are ready to serve the community.
I have met with the
with the Shula last visit and actually I will meet them again tonight after dinner.
And I have told them
bluntly and straightforward
Allah has placed you in that position to save this community.
Because this is the only body which is recognized here.
You know, we may disagree on
you know, adding or deleting or pasting but this is the only body that is recognized in the community.
And they did have some differences. They they actually were at the verge of breaking and we got them back
they are working together.
I think there is more improvement and you know that that can happen.
There is no harm you know
Listening to the people there is no, I mean, they should listen to you and listen to the other parties, but
they are all grownups.
You know that the notion that they are being influenced or serving the interests of a particular group in the community. I mean, it's between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala that shouldn't be there.
And I I tell it to them, quite frankly, if you you know, it, listen, if you're in the business of making people happy with you when you work for communities, I'm telling you, that's a chapter 13 100%
because the person who could raise you today, tomorrow, he will get you.
Man alpha NASA be sarsaparilla as hautala holliness Well, I had our 809
if you try to please be hurried. This is a hadith if you try to please people at the expense of your Amana at the expense of your mission at the expense what you're supposed to do to Allah, the same people you please they're going to be angry with you.
Howdy I'm Anna and you can be you can be with them brother and run 24 seven Can you so you still have to remind them of the consciousness of Allah subhana wa that they are there to serve the cause of the world
and they are not after pleasing this person of pleasing that person. Because I want to tell you something. When you answer in the day of judgment to Allah, these people are not going to be around you. They actually gonna run away from you. So we remind them and they are grown up they are educated and inshallah they will beat me later either I met with them and I have a lot of hope that this buddy in sha Allah will strengthen the community with me later. Yes, brother Hassan.
You seem to have told me now Yes, so people who want to hurt this community for the people who are running to do bad to disperse us to take us from our fat we have big God we have our kids were lost during the three years here.
We don't want most more
is gone. So we ask about
machine to machine.
And may Allah take care of the we can do more than that and bring them to the old man Sharla that will be more beneficial.
Okay, I have a question here from the sisters.
What is the difference between the soul
and the spirit? I guess that's what the question
this is a subject Mashallah, that's, you know, very wealthy and if you want to enjoy I don't know if anybody translated is a Roth liberal. Was it No, nobody translated? Yeah, there is a book called The roof, liberal Chi even if you're an Arabic speaking, but I don't think it was translated. But they tell you in general,
when the soul is in the body, it's called knifes.
But when it is out, then it's called growth.
That's the common
And also they tell you when you purify your soul, meaning you you implement the guidance, then you turn your soul into a role.
Because Allah subhanho wa Taala called the revelation rule.
What can daddy can Delica our hyena alayka
ro Han min Marina Meza la V, a rueful amine. So when you purify your neffs you turn it into row. But when you leave it without purification, it stays as enough's. Let's go gamble. Let's go drink. Let's go. That's where in a nafsa. Amara. To me this is the most common but it's a subject that's worthy of studying is other questions. You guys are hungry for dinner? Yes, brother.
Can you will ask know your name. My name is? Norman is the first time I meet you where you been? Man?
We need your help. Yes, no, man. Go ahead.
Hello. So my question is very simple. What are the things or issues that you want to fix? Right? There are a lot of issues. People also know what their issues are against you. I don't I haven't seen anybody while long term. So I don't know what those issues are. So can you just let us like three or four issues that you're going to help us
I think top of the line is working on the relationships.
You see, if you don't fix that, I'm telling you, you're playing with the, you know is is knowing
that Allah subhanho wa Taala has pleased you in this community to make a difference. And each one of us can make a difference can contribute something.
And don't think just about yourself and about what you have is, is the concept of brotherhood, we have to bring this back Subhana Allah, there's something I love about this community, look at the differences that we have. And that's why that's the challenge, you know, we have, look at the colors, look at the languages, look at the ethnic groups look at the, and we're under one umbrella.
And this is in itself, by the way, I tell you is a sign of success.
You know, when you enter a Masjid, and I'm not racial here at all, by the way, and you just see African American, only African Americans, that's a feeling machine in America. Unless if the whole community the whole neighborhood is what, that's another issue. But we know that in America, all colors, all races, all ethnic groups exist. If you go to a Masjid and you find only Pakistani, or Egyptian, that's a failing machine.
Because that's the way it should be. Everybody must be here, a Muslim, everybody who says La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah. And that's the challenge.
So what you're going through is called a growing pain. But if you're in the right position, you know, Hamdulillah, you have not turned into an ethnic group, you have not turned into one method.
One method also, you have not turned into one color, you have not turned into one language you have now is still keeping this community together. But now sorting out these little differences is number one.
Task number two, the school.
You see, the school is the most important institution you have here.
I'm telling you, and I know listen, some of you have differences. Some of you have
criticized the school.
Some of you have talked about how it is handled. But please, this is a message from me, if you have some differences with the people who are running the school, don't go after the school.
If you like Mac D don't attack the school because we need that school. It's shame that we still have only 50 students in the school. And it's been running for six years, there's something wrong,
there is something wrong.
And I was told that in the machine, you cannot make an announcement for the school. What's going on here? There's something wrong, we need to fix that.
This board you must promote Islamic education because I'm telling you, you're sending your children like this little boy to learn sorcery every day. Number two brother on my list is the school and I'm working with the brothers to better the school. You know, let's not just focus on oh he did that and he done that, you know, we need to think about moving forward what can we do to solve the problem?
A Muslim should think this way for inshallah, when I hear good news about the school in the light on insha Allah This is number two. Number three is figuring out the BIOS, but we need time for this because I as I said yeah, what what law he I have seen this in multiple communities, we rush into by rows. Meanwhile, there is no doubts and suspicions and you know, second guessing Your brother is still there. The moment that by laws is their
big fitna happens we have to prepare the brothers and the sisters for accepting whatever decision because you know any man made thing is subject to
you know, mistakes and and all of this, these are the three top of the line. But the fourth which is really now is in immediate, it's an action and action it's being executed is working with the existing body to strengthen them
and to solve their differences because they had some differences. Some of them had some differences with one another. We brought them back together and we meeting with them we're communicating with them. So they keep the community running until we figure out the rest of the things inshallah I think that's more than enough for me if I could solve those Mashallah, that would be nice and sharp.
Do all these four issues?
No, no, no, no, no, no, my brother. No, no, I'm still actually at a stage of assessing the situation. You know, I'm, and I'm telling you, I'm not going to come in. And if this is a, if this is your perception about me, I'm not going to come in and force something on anybody here. I'm not going to do this. I have enough enemies Alhamdulillah You know, I'm just going to work with the parties discuss. And I'll let them know, by experience by evidence that this is the way it should be done.
Come on, let's call our common sense here. And and hopefully we'll live we have I met with these brothers will lie they are very reasonable. But live very reasonable. Yani inshallah, I think everybody has a good intention. But sometimes good intention is not sufficient. You must compare this with the knowledge and the experience in Sharla. Dinner is getting served Any other question? Yes. Oh, Jeffrey, Jeffrey, the philosophy of the new chairman of the ball. Thank you for coming over. Second, I personally and I think like we all should be very ashamed that we add the stage that we could not resolve our issues together, we have outside influence of common adult issue. Now
community a part of the community here. And this is the question to them also, that whatever the solution that you bring, to the help of Allah, are we ready and we accept as it is, or even after your solution? We are still in the same boat and fighting together? Again?
I guess that's a question to you, not to me. I think I think in sha Allah, I think in sha Allah made me later. I think the trajectory, the focus is to see the change in the ground.
You can sit and you know, talk about the theory. But what this theory has reduced for the community, I think the community is more interested in seeing more activities in the machine.
And seeing more action in the school and seeing a better education, they are more interested in this. They are interested who is the board and who's in charge and who is this and no, they want to see change in the ground. And that's what we should focus on. And that's what we're going for. And the moment they see this.
I tell you, I tell you something,
you know the fitna in this oma, which Omar described to me the door which got broken and never been fixed. After that started with who with the assassination of automatic not found on the lawn.
So the the people looked into this fitna, and
what happened to this community of believers who went as far as you know that the Roman Empire and they collapse Virginia, what happened to them? Very interesting.
You see with with Omar,
the Arab, the Arabs were not familiar with the marine. So they they got to the Mediterranean, they went all the way to a region.
So now between them and
the land is the sea. So they didn't have this. So they thought the mission is over. So now, instead of going out there and being busy with splitting Islam all around the world, the money is coming in.
And they are sitting in Medina. Now when you sit like this fitness is gonna be what?
Whatever they tell you, the best way the man can win a community is to keep them busy.
keep them busy, okay, we got to do this, and we got to do that. Likewise, the war, about the war. We gotta do this, we gotta do that. Whereas this project, we're gonna do, you gotta keep the community busy. If you keep them busy, they're gonna be busy with that stuff. And if you don't, they're going to be busy with you.
While I tell you I won't lie out of experience, I'm going to be busy with you. But
you know, Dr. Jeffrey, you know, the community when I see a change in the ground. I don't think they are there when only who's running it and who's here and who's signing that? No, they don't. They just want to see that change. Well, that
number didn't increase over the years. And
we know that
we know that and that's really
in order to fix the school. We need to look at the cause effect.
What happened to that school so the kids or the parents don't bring their kids or the number of who gets in, maybe it was the number who got out. So to fix the issue, to see the big picture, as you said,
maybe those parents who
need to be heard
what went wrong?
weather need to know
what happened to that what's going on? So, I believe that
inshallah Bismillah Sharla there is that we have a plan will work or in a plan that will take care of a survey actually, and all of this will be done. It's a professional approach, you know, and you know, I want to let you know that the brothers who are managing the school, they know that they are not educators, they know that and inshallah there will be improvements just make the Sharla we need your garage Allah. Okay, dinner is getting cold
