Alhamdulillah Hamden. Catherine forgiven Mubarak and Fie
Alhamdulillah wa salatu wa salam O Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah.
Allah Allah He was happy he was why do you wanna watch out for inner circle Hades? Khattab lava hadal Howdy, howdy Mohammed. And some of the long run he will sell them was Shara Mustafa to have a coup de coeur de la la, la de la Latin for now, you will
want to say that a Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh cattle
here, brothers and sisters respected guests,
it is a tremendous honor to be back here in Melbourne. Again,
we only wish that we could come here more often. And by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala, perhaps we will be able to do that. Because we've made an arrangement Alhamdulillah that now I'm working
for the Australian Islamic College in Sydney. And I think I'll probably be there for maybe a year or two, which mean we're almost like cousins.
So at the request of the organizers and other Muslims in the city, perhaps every couple of months or so we can come and we can do some work. And not just lectures, but that we could do some work that is part of the building process of community work in shallow water either. regarding our subject tonight, I want to say to you that first I always try to make these disclosures, because it is only fair and ethical to do so I am a student of a student of a student.
So the people who are scholars and students have knowledge of the scholars in this city in other places, they will probably see the deficiency of what I have to offer. But I asked them to forgive me for that inshallah and you know, sort of also blame the brothers who invited me to come here.
But what I will try to do, I'll do what the bush doctor does. That is until he people can get to the clinics, into the hospitals in the places where they can get professional care, the bush doctor, he puts together little pollutants and things that he can can help the people relieve the people until they can get to the place where they can get the proper care. So that's what I will do relative to this kind of subject here. Because we already have, we have the Quran and we have the sun and we have the and we have the Tafseer. And we have the Sierra, and we have all the different Islamic disciplines. And the scholars have already written on this, the students have already spoke about
this, it's been acted upon. So there's nothing new that I'm going to say. However, sometimes, at a particular time, under special circumstances, there is something that can be said, while the iron is hot, you can strike it, and then it makes a difference. What I'll try to do tonight is I'll try to sort of strike down while it's hot. Say a few things that from my background, a guy from Brooklyn, you know, a new Muslim evolving into Islam, striving to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Maybe there's something that I might be able to say that gives a little new twist, a new insight, a little something that you might want to think about and take into consideration. That's the best
that I'm going to be able to offer here so I ask for your patience.
First, we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned to us in the Quran, about the issue of unity, the issue of community, the issue of solidarity, Allah subhanaw taala only auditors in this in the Quran, he told us how to build a ministry ecology while tassimo we have lillahi Jami.
So the word wa tassimo bind yourselves, join yourselves, we hablan law, the rope of Allah the Quran and the Sunnah. Jamia Jamia here means as a group with a discipline
With a leader in the manner in which Allah subhanaw taala has ordered you and by the example that you have seen in the prophets, Allah loves them and in the example of the companions in the tablet and in the activity of 18 This is the Jamia a last one is given to us that is our paradigm. Wallah and do not for Roku Do not be divided. Don't be divided by ideas. Don't be divided by personal things. Don't be divided by nationalities. Don't be divided by classes. Don't be divided by ethnicity. Don't be divided by culture. Don't be divided by anything but be upon the Quran and the sooner.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala also mentioned to us in sorts of stuff he said in the La Jolla the new katima feasibilities suffer cannon banana Marceau's.
Surely Allah subhanho wa Taala he loves those who fight who struggle who sacrifice in his way, visibility and the Seville of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the public of Allah subhana wa Taala the Seville of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the main hedge of the prophets of Allah Islam, the severe of Allah subhanho wa Taala is again the Quran and the Sunnah suffer rose discipline as you are sitting, they set this hall up like this here to get the maximum amount of people in this room also that they will be organized. They will not be falling over each other. They organized they designed it that way. Allah subhanaw taala he organized he designed this Deen in the same way suffer CanAm as if they
were gonna know building components, all put together muscles, muscles comes from word of mouth, it means something which itself has been built upon it poured something maybe I am maybe steel, maybe it's concrete in the middle iron and steel poured over it so that if you try to break it, it will not break apart Marceau's Allah subhanaw taala he is describing what he wants for the Muslim ummah. Unfortunately, because of the times because of our mentality because of our disease, because of our condition. We have been broken, we have been scattered, we have been shattered, we have been splattered all over the world, because we broke our unity, and we do not have a physical community.
Now that do we have a global community? No. Do we have a regional community? No, do we have a national community? Nor do we have a municipal community and in most houses, there's not even a family community. Unfortunately, why? Because there are some ingredients. If you don't have it, it can never come. You can have a Ferrari given to you brand new, but if it has no steering wheel, and no brake pedals, you're in for crash.
You're in for a nightmare. So Allah gave this to us, but unfortunately, no wheel, no steering wheel. No know Mmm, no, I mean, no, no, no, no imara no government. So with no government, no halifa no discipline, no regulation, what can we do? Absolutely nothing.
The Muslims are always talking about 1.6 billion Muslims 1.5 billion Muslims blah, blah. So what can you do with 1.6 billion when matches?
But changing 1.6 gallons of, of stagnant water? What do you do with 1.6 billion pounds or tons of rotten food? Nothing. You have to recycle it to get something out of it. Today, the Muslims will have to be recycled. If you don't think so. You're just foolish. You're just naive. you're one of those people who just keep reading books and you're in lala land.
We Muslims have to have a head put on our body.
We just don't think that something is wrong because we see the anatomy we see ourselves but the anatomy of the global nation has no head since 1924. No head on the body and no Muslims with power or with knowledge have exerted themselves to put that head back on the body. We have resigned ourselves to be a Muslim body all over the world that everyone is looking at with no hit on the body.
Everybody got a hit on them. Everybody got a president. Everybody got a chairman. Everybody has a government. Even the perverts got a government.
Everybody has a head a chairman, a power base or government or constitution. Someone that leaves them someone that commands them someone that represents them except
The Muslims yet we are the ones in our book of Allah subhanaw taala auditors this, this is another subject. And I don't want those who maybe some of you think maybe it may be their brother been touched by the his battalion or something.
Now, I'll tell you this, may Allah bless those brothers, for whatever faults they have, maybe you forgive them, may Allah bless them for their aspirations for their warnings for their encouragement about this issue, because if they're the only ones that's talking about it, they may be the only ones on a day of judgment that allows one reward and maybe he will pardon them for it.
Forgive them for their faults or their shortcomings. Join them in what they say which is right
and avoid what they say which is wrong.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he said,
the hand of Allah subhanaw taala is over the Jamaat
This means the help of a loss over the GMR the guidance of a loss of the Jamaat the blessings of the loss of the Jamaat, the preservation of a gift to the Jamaat, Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses the Gema because the Jamaica is the main hedge of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
Even if the Muslim became powerful, even if they became knowledgeable, whatever sophistication the law gives them, when they have no jamala and they have no Amir and there is no imara, there will be no blessing.
Because it is a different kind of men hedge, you're following a message of somebody else is that the man has of Islam. The Messenger of Allah loves them said, Whosoever separates from the Jamaat one hand span, one hand span separates themselves and in hell. Now this doesn't mean that who ever separate themselves from a group of Muslims at a mosque Masjid, he joined that Masjid and then he's separating those guys he had a beef with them a problem with them he separated so where you're going to hell, Aki? That's not what it means.
Whoever separates themselves from the aqeedah of the JAMA of the Quran and the Sunnah separates themselves in hell.
Why? Because they have separated themselves into a different group, the grip of the of the group of the bizarre, the group,
the group of the facade, the group of the first 16, the group of 15, because they have to be of another group if they are not of the group of the Jamaat and the Quran and the Sunnah.
One of our
great Muslims, one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, his name was Amara Hata rhodiola one, may Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with him.
He said, in another, there is no Islam without jamaah listen to it carefully.
There is no Islam without jamaah no Islam without the presence of a discipline community.
The presence of a disciplined community
and no jamaah unless there is an Amir
and there is no discipline community. Unless there is an Amir that is someone commanding them and someone whom the people have put their hands in his hands, and they say, we will follow you, we will be loyal to you and we will here and we will obey and what we like and what we dislike in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he said, and there is no Amir, if he does not have a more
power command, that is you and I, we put our physical, we put our mental, we put our spiritual hands in his hands. And therefore when he lifts his hands and brings it down, he brings it down with the hands of 50,000 100,000 200,000 people whichever it is in this city or any other city, if there isn't a meal in the city of Melbourne, who has the reasonable loyalty of the Muslims in the city, including their leaders, their scholars, their students of knowledge, the intellectual people and their business people. When he lifts his hand brings it down, when he puts his hand as a contract and anybody else's hands when he says no. When he says stop when it says go when it commands sit,
stand move. He does so with the hand and the voice of every person in the city. Can you imagine what kind of power that is? It is power. So I'm going to give us a very practical understanding of Jamal, the dynamic of Jamal, no Islam. He didn't mean no Salah. He didn't mean there's no zeca he didn't mean there's no hedge. He didn't mean to people don't believe in Allah. He meant that there will be no
there will be no visible, tangible structure of Islam.
No one will see it. No one will respect it. No one will respond to it. No one will believe it unless there is
and the JAMA itself
will be undisciplined. It will be like a man who gets married, and he says, I'd like to have 10 children, but he still
he can wish. But if he's sterile, the only thing you can do is adopt some babies.
The jamara must have anemia. And the Prophet sallallahu emsam said, some of them said, if there are three of you on a journey, what should you do? Choose one as the Amir.
One is the meal. This is just the journey. So we have a group of brothers. They do this all the time. All of you know the brothers. If they have to make sure of anything to go to the store go this place go their place. They select three brothers. They go they have shoot they have Masada, they sit down the children. I mean, this is a good sauna, but it's a ritual sooner that sooner should be practiced and our political, our social, our economic affairs, all the way across the board.
Every Muslim in this room right here and then the other rooms here should themselves know what a meal they have.
You should know if you don't know something's wrong.
Everybody know who their father is? If I know who their mother is, if I know where they work if I know where they live, if I know their pin number why you don't know who's your Amir,
you have to know who is your Amir? to you for you to know it, you have to select, you have to nominate This is a part of the Islamic men hedge. And we have to follow what Bob said because the process often said lamb sumati was to qualify urashima D
upon us the following of my son and also the son of home. The Court of Russia didn't buy D who was one of those they love.
The literal meaning of community means group from the language it means a group of people or for that matter, Allah subhanaw taala uses the terminology, even when it comes to birds, when it comes to Acts, when it comes to animals, Allah subhanaw taala use the same terminology because they have been grouped with similar characteristics with similar destiny. So human beings who are grouped together whether geographically socially, sociologically, historically, ethnically, if they are grouped together with a similar destiny, that is called the Jamaat, literally in the language. However, through the Quran, and the Sunnah, the word Yama, it took a broader and a deeper meaning to
include a group of people who have a similar faith or a similar tradition, a similar inspiration, and also a similar legislation. We say Walla Walla Walla, concerning Allah subhanaw taala and those who is who's observing this, and that that cam is the JAMA of the Muslims. Therefore,
Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, he used different words to express the JAMA. He used the word oma.
He said, in one place of the blind ministry tanzeem kuntum, Hira Martin rejet the NASS jamberoo roof mooncup lab he Allah subhanaw taala says you Muslims, have the best of human beings evolved for the whole humanity. Why? Because you enjoy what is right. You forbid What is wrong? And you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now here enjoying the right doesn't mean encouraging people to do what's right. Honorable maruf means having the power to enjoin the people to do what is right. Having the power.
I'll give you an idea of my roof.
Coming from the airport,
I saw I think we went to a toll booth. Is there one
You can't just run through the toll booth.
You have to stop you got to pay the money.
Why? Because it's paid for the highway. And the highway is paid for you can still keep paying.
Because it's part of the system as part of the enjoyment of the system. So they set up a mechanical thing that you react to automatically and you pay.
This is because they have power. When the Muslims have power. The Muslims is also able to do the same thing in their areas in their communities. They can stop the drugs, they can stop the alcohol drinking, they can stop the people from gambling, they can stop the fornication, they can stop the adultery, they can stop the gangsterism they can stop because they have power. And when we are unable to stop it. That means we have no power.
And when our children and other people in our community see that we have no power, they roll over our faces. They do whatever they do right in our face. And even Muslims themselves, who themselves do not feel a loss of power data when they realize that the Muslims have no power. They also don't feel us and they sell alcohol and they sell drugs, and they sell girlie magazines and they sell they sell Hummer and they sell khanzir, and they do everything and they come right to the mosque.
While their stores are still open, and they have no fear and no respect, and some of them they are on the mattress.
Some of them is on the Board of Trustees. Nobody can say nothing to them at all. They have no fear. Because in the time of the companions of the Prophet SAW said when a man didn't feel loved, they would feel alone.
They would feel harlot they will feel people like obey the law.
They will feel men whom Allah subhanaw taala gave them power, they will feel them if they didn't feel lost Potala and this is part of the roof.
To enjoy the right means enjoying the people encouraged to do it, the last ones on the audit, and in case the people don't have no fear of loss of data, then they will fear the presence of those whom Allah has inspired.
Nyan munkar means forgetting what is wrong, stopping what is wrong, prosecuting people to do wrong, making them pay for what they do, which is wrong in this life. And that people can see people without hands.
People can see in the public hairs rolling down the street.
People can see in the public, you know, some people got the head hands, the hands and feet from opposite sides chopped off and they see him crucified. They see people get punished. They see people get put up against the pole and see him get lashed and the public. They see people get punished for slandering, backbiting they see it and because they see that, that acts as a deterrent for them because they think about that is Oh, I don't want that to happen to me.
I don't think that the people of Saudi Arabia, I don't think that Sharia law any more than you and I
but on more than one occasion, I myself left my wallet or I left my bag someplace in the public in Saudi Arabia Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala I came back to this but in my wallet is right there.
Unbelievable. But it is not so unbelievable when you think about it.
Because when I was in Riyadh one time, and I went to the central mosque on the day they had the head, you see then I could believe it.
Because if you are seven years old or nine years old, or 13 years old, whatever and you see the execution take place for the man who stole something that is he picked up a wallet in the street that didn't belong to Him. And then somebody said harami he was caught with that one in his hands. That's the evidence finished threw
it only took three days for them to counsel him prosecute him and after that set up on the Juma the execution or the cutting of the hands, quick, fast justice. If you saw that for yourselves, I think if you had seen my wallet sitting there you will probably just backup
so panela how Allah subhanho wa Taala how he gives us in some of these different signs but we live in a society where
everybody's thinking about their own profit and if nobody can see nothing Mashallah mine
so the the enjoining the right and forbidding of the role it is not abstract is not just we celebrate you shouldn't do that. We walk into a brother story and semi brother he got allow me all in the back. He telling me about the don't eat these chips rather don't eat them Chris, cuz they got rid z or whatever the case might be. He got hammered across the whole wall. He got a pin zero right in front of him. He got a whole rack of gold and magazine for why he's over there. And he got the lotto machine going he got an extra people working over there and a lot of machines and he telling me that he got his cow meat and don't eat those Chris
and the same Muslim will be in the first or second rank of the masjid in Ramadan, praying behind the Imam praying the taraweeh prayer and he will be crying amongst
the same man will be going to Hajj and on our fight he will be saying Yara Yara, Mamata Muharram woman
woman basta who haram bajo de abril Haram, how can this be accepted? And how can his prayers be accepted? But this is our condition. We can do nothing to him because we come in his shop and talk to me say man your business Get out of my store. I call the police
because we have no power
Brothers and sisters Allah subhanaw taala mentioned about the Ummah but the middler about the Jamaat, and it took a formal and classical meaning, the formal and classical meaning that Gemma took from the Quran, the community of the believers, the community of the Quran and the Sunnah. And because of the comprehensive application of the Quran and the Sunnah, the term of Jama became a universal terminology for the entire Muslim world. That is, before the Quran, the word Yama did not have a universal meaning after the Quran, after the sooner after law perfected this religion, after the last one that gave us the paradigm of the prophet SAW lost him and he gave us the paradigm of
the of the Islamic community, the Islamic government in Medina that moved out then the world understood what is Jamaat? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us if we want to know what the Jamaat looked at the three generations, the German he said, Ernie, familiar No, no, no, no, look to my generation, look to the generation of the terrain, look to the generation of the adversary. And after that, some other people came, and they did some things a lot told them not to do and they refuse to do some things which Allah told them to do. So the jamak took upon a different meaning. It became a universal terminology for the whole Muslim world to see and for the whole non Muslim world
to see, from that perspective, the community already exists, which means we don't have to establish community in that sense, the community of the core and the community of the sooner the community, Allah, Allah already set the community in motion and that community will exist all the way into Yeoman piano from a theoretical point of view.
However, the Islamic community does not exist within a theoretical vacuum. We cannot say that is Gemma because we go to Juma.
We can't say this Gemma because we're going out to do Tbilisi work. We cannot say there is Gemma just because a group of brothers got together to do something good. That is not the Jamaat, that a lot of speaking about the Jamaat, that Allah subhanaw taala, speaking about is the jamaah, which itself covers all the comprehensive needs, and has all the institutions that serve the interests and sets up the platform of Islam for the Muslims throughout the world. That is the Jamaat.
We are a community with social, political, economic, and cultural dynamics.
Islam is a self contained, global system, I repeat that Islam as a self contained, global system, self contained, that means that it has everything in it that it needs to have in it in order for it to function that's self contained.
No other no other religion. No other faith in the world has inside of it, the capabilities of ruling the world,
only Islam. And Islam has proven that.
Second thing, no other system has the resilience that once it falls to the bottom, it can come back again. No other faith can do that. But Islam has done it over and over and over. And it will do that again. Bismillah.
Islam as a global system, it is not a system of the atoms.
It's not a system of the non atoms
is not a system for some areas, some region is not a system for some particular time. It's a system for all time, all conditions of space altogether, everywhere for anyone and everyone under all types of circumstances and conditions.
The question is,
what do we need to what do we need to do in order to build and sustain the Islamic community because that is our subject here. What do we need to do to build and sustain
the Islamic community
as an institution
and as a visible system.
There are two phases
that we can identify to do this two phases one is called the building phase. And the other stage is sort of an organizational and executive stage. So let us go through some of the points that are necessary for the building stage and brothers and sisters. Listen, I'm drawing upon that which have been given this is didn't come out of my mind.
One of our famous scholars, his name was was Eben Khaldoon. May Allah subhanaw taala he bless him, he wrote a book book he wrote a book called
keep tabs on a bar. And the first book and the key table, a bar, which is about five books is called a demo.
This demo is a very powerful book, I suggest that anyone interested in history, the sociology of Islam, understand that human beings understand the behavior of human beings understand the Islamic systems and systems of the world and geography and sociology. And those subjects first read in hell don't read the read the Padilla and you will be able to understand some things. I'm drawing from some issues which he laid out there, and I'm drawing on some other things. Number one, in order for us to have an institution and a visible system that would allow us to call it an Islamic community, not simply a Muslim community, but Islamic. There are two different things. A Muslim community is a
group of Muslims, if they are weak, if they are deviant, if they are straight, if they are fantastic, if they are whatever caliber that they are still they're Muslims.
But that is not Islamic. And that's why we can't call the Muslim countries Islamic countries.
I don't say that there's not an Islamic
essence there. The flame is always there, the worst leader of the Muslims, still inside of him, there is something about Islam.
And Allah subhanaw taala, he has used the worst of the Muslims, and the best of the Muslims to achieve his cause. We have seen that in the history. So we cannot say that Islam is not there it is there. Wherever the Muslims are, there is Islam there. But we got to bring the Islam out. Islam today is locked up in the prison of culture.
And if we don't let it out, nobody will see Islam they only see the Muslim culture.
You and I, we have to let Islam out of the bottle of our culture. Take Islam out of the baggage of our culture. Take us out of the prison of culture. Islam is asking us, let me out. Let the people see me.
And we won't let it out. Because we want to address Islam and we want Islam to be my lamp, her lamb, his lamb, the lamb. us Lamb. We lamb.
The Lamb, we want Islam to be everything other than what Allah subhanaw taala called it Islam.
We want to drape it, color it, decorate it, contain it, deliver it in our culture, with our name, our ethnicity, our color, our dress and our weight. No, the process also made it very clear, he said
man fee emelina Heather malice I mean, for who or what?
whosoever introduces into this affair of ours meaning the Quran and the Sunnah and Islam
malaise them in that which is not from it. For Holland, it will be rejected on the Day of Judgment, it will be rejected among the knowledgeable people it will be rejected and this time it will be rejected in the next time.
Therefore we Muslims, our culture is okay. Anything in our culture that does not disagree with Islam, it is okay. Islam didn't came to run to run out the culture. Allah gave us our names, give us our country, give us our food, give us our colors give us our different forms and shapes and all of this Allah gave that to us. But he gave that to us. He said the tada foo.
You know that we can just distinguish each other in the,
in the law.
Those who have Taqwa those who believe in Allah subhanaw taala, those who are attached to the Quran and the Sunnah, those who put that first. And last one God said in
the nature of the relationship between the believers is brotherhood.
So in order for us to establish an Islamic community, we have to reverse the situation. We have to put the culture inside the prison of Islam. We had to put culture inside the baggage of Islam, we had to put the culture inside the bottle of Islam, we have to contain our culture, our desires, our feelings, our ideas inside Islam.
Now to do that, we have to start a process. Number one, there needs to be a group of Muslims who desire and agree, they must desire and they must agree to initiate the process. So there must be Muslims who say we have to have Gema
we have to stop this foolishness.
We have the
Stop this division.
We have to stop this backbiting we have to stop all of the same things that we do we have to stop this this atom stuff this African stuff this Asian stuff this Turkish stuff, this European stuff. This America, we got to stop this.
They don't need to be no masjids with no nationalistic ethnic ethnic names,
ethnocentric names, no Pakistani Masjid, no Turkish Masjid and also Mali Masjid and OSA od Masjid. I know if Ruchi Masjid no indo Pakistan Masjid. No, no messages.
The messages belong to Allah subhanaw taala How dare you to put your name on the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala
because if it were allowed Allah subhanho wa Taala he would have allowed Ibrahim Elise them to put his name on that house.
Then we will be making Masjid we'll be making Salah at the Halle Masjid. When making Hajj at the Halle Masjid.
The Ebrahimi Masjid, Masjid al haram would have been called the Ebrahimi machine, the holiday master because he is hunted a lot, because he has Ibrahim, the friend of Allah subhanaw taala. But that is not the case. It is beta love. It is Mr. hollom. That is his identity. It is its characteristic. So why do people immigrate to a country? And because they want to, they want to put a flag up, but the country will not you put your flag up?
So what you do you put up your little sign, or you put your little thing in a telephone book, what you're really saying is, you're saying that this is a Turkish Masjid, and therefore things go our way or the highway.
That's what you're saying. You say that the overheads the seniors, the people who set this up, the people who put their money out the people who's in the front, the Imam in the mosque, so the method that we follow is going to be that Turkish Wait, you got you didn't say that? Exactly. But that's what you mean. And if there's a Turkish Masjid here, or Somali Masjid here, or as to Delhi Masjid, or an Arab Masjid or whatever kind of Masjid, that's the deal. That is your method. That is really what you're saying. And if it's been here for 50 years, that's what has been for 50 years. And it was he another 50 years, that's what it's gonna be for another 50 years. Until we change it.
And it will be changed in sha Allah
50 years ago, 50 years ago, so Panama.
At the at the message of heroin, can you imagine this?
One day a van was called
for emails came out, and and when demand went to the hanafy station, the man went to the sheffy station does the man went to the Maliki station and the other man he went to the the Chevy station or the handling station, and then all the people of their followers came behind them. And they made the law separately in the huddle.
And this was this took place for maybe some eight years.
all the fuqaha the kings in the princes and whoever they call themselves at that time, they allowed it. They couldn't do anything about it. Because whoever was the Amir, the Sultan, or whatever they might have called himself would have had power. That's what he wanted. That's what he allowed and the people they loved it.
Everybody loved it
was called I go behind my mom that's it. That's me. We correct we got our time together.
We over here we had a feast. We got them together. The Maliki's be over here like this, you
know, the ones they like this
other one they like this.
You know we can all do our thing, whatever we want to do. It makes a lot we go and we go eat. There was no McDonald's outside of him then.
So everybody can go eat a karaoke day shish kebab, and everybody can do what they want to do. And everything was okay. Then Allah subhanaw taala he sent a man of power, a man of principle and a man of knowledge and wiped it out.
hamdulillah today, we all go to Mecca. How many moms leave the salon. Mashallah, we don't say we don't say how righteous the Saudi government is. We don't know a lot of them.
We don't say that is because of their righteousness. But Alhamdulillah as long as they have been there, the man who came out with the power, the man that came out with the knowledge, the man that came out with the principal, he helped also to establish that government that government has made sure they know for emails hamdulillah
we can see therefore, what power and principal can
without power. And without principle, you can have all the knowledge you want.
People can do what they want. But when there is power, you can see because today hamdulillah you can do whatever you want to do outside. But when you enter Saudi Arabia, everybody knows how everything goes.
Everybody knows that you can talk about them all you want. But whatever way they say it goes, it goes that way, or you get up out of that.
That's power. At least I say, we Muslims should have that kind of power all over the world.
Because that is not the only country right now the only Muslim country right now. Well, no, it is it isn't. It is own It is the only country that has the correct arcada.
That is instituting the head. The only ones that have the have the that have the power, and who have the audacity and who have the principle to continue punishing the people as a punishment.
Now, maybe they don't punish the princes and the kings and other them. I don't know.
That's another issue.
But the people that steal and get caught
the people that drink and get caught people that slander and get caught the people that do for whites and they get caught the people that rob a bank or steal from somebody and they get caught. There is swift justice and everybody knows that Alhamdulillah for that at least there is a semblance of that in the world today.
So first, the Muslims need to have a group of Muslims who desire and agree to initiate the process. Number two, they choose they nominate or otherwise appoint one of them as the Amir. Now what is the Amir? The Amir is the person that means he has he's the commander. Now islands 10. Brothers and brothers come together here in Melbourne, and they choose man, he's really the commander of Melbourne.
That's not what it means.
It means that they have accepted to appoint him with a responsibility of limited command.
He is the commander of them. He is their press, he is their representative. He is their coordinator. He is there. Imagine the president, the leader column what you want. But when you put your hands in his hands, and you said, Brother, you need to represent us, you need to be the meal. What that basically means is you have abdicated or you have given up a portion of your power and given it to that particular brother this the way Islam works. And what it also means is that we like other people, we are not democratic. So whoever talks about Islam is democratic, they don't understand.
Democratic means like we all sit here together, and we talk about something that we say we vote.
So the majority was done in democracy, democracy majority wins that correct. So what could happen in a democracy is somebody could fix the vote.
Somebody could set the whole situation up, where in a democracy, the majority of the people could vote what is wrong,
and they can even vote the Amir out he gone.
So whoever wants to follow democracy, democracy against the principles of Islam, in Islam, there is no democracy. Not in that sense. There is freedom, there is liberation, there's individual rights, there's the ownership of property.
There's justice, all of that there's consultation, but that is not what Islam says is democracy. What Islam says is that there is a meal, and the people should have Shura consultation. And if there's a disagreement among the people, after they talk to me to take their advice, for instance, if this brother here is the Amir, or the brother that is the Amir, or whoever the Amir and all of us we talked to he consult who you need to consult. And after you finish consulting, say thank all of you very much. This my decision.
After the Aamir makes the decision, nobody else could stand up and say, Oh, we need to take a vote on that.
Now, we can do that here in Melbourne.
Because the Amir doesn't have any power.
But when the Amir has power, no one will stand up and say, after he's made a judgment, we need to vote on that.
I'll give you a good instance. We have this problem of when we go when we go and start too fast. And when we go in too fast. Do y'all have the problem here?
You know, the different you got the different methods, different groups, somebody said they want to go up on a mountain and see somebody who said we're gonna be in the valley. So if you say no, we're gonna compute it. Some people say no, we don't go to the nautical people and they're gonna look out at the sea. Some other people said, No, we don't already set it up. Some people said we already printed the calendar
That's that um everybody got all kinds of different things so you wind up with five different dates for the beginning of Ramadan happy that'd be right.
And then when Ramadan ends the same thing, half the people eating on the E.
So my son following the eat I'm following I'm following the moon in Indonesia might say don't follow the moon and Mecca so I said don't follow the moon I saw in the backyard.
So people say I don't care about the moon. I'm just counting 30 days that's it.
Well, let's look at the other side.
Let's look at the other side.
Mashallah, in Saudi Arabia, there's a Mufti
Mashallah, our neighbor next to here in Malaysia is a Mufti. In fact, there is 12 monkeys in Malaysia. But there is a central Mufti.
When the Mufti tells the president, when the Mufti in Saudi Arabia tells the king, the moon has been cited, the king makes a verdict
affetto has been given a verdict is made by the king, the execution of it, the announcement is fast and begins. Do you think that some people in some different cities or valleys or mountains of Saudi Arabia call up and say, oh, listen, King is a Mufti? We've seen the movie yet, so we fasted.
It's not gonna happen.
It's not going to happen. And I have known it to be the case where the Mufti said that the fasting began on a certain day that the moon had been seen based upon the delille that they had captured. 10 days later, they did some investigation, and they found out that the person who gave them that information, there was some error.
So then the Mufti told the king, the king had everybody to write everything said add another day because we started wrong. Mashallah consistent with what the prophets often said. But there was unity in the starting of it, and there was unity at the end.
We have to have that. But if there's no power, no unity, so they must choose a nominate, otherwise appoint one of them the amid the coordinator, Chairman, Imam, President, leader, column would you like according to the Islamic men heads, this group then becomes the founding body.
They become the founding body or the core group that guarantees the Islamic constitutionality. And what is the Islamic constitutionality at the Shura
that group guarantees at least from a reasonable point of view that there will be sure there will be consultation, there'll be leadership according to the men heads of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, it is called shaarei. It is called the shadow method means that it is shorter according to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
Therefore, the projects of that group, the programs of that group, the activities of that group, and the ambitions of the group will be according to Quran and Sunnah at least reasonably. So why because they have come together for that purpose. This group was the leader. And this fundamental structure, they began to invite, attract, and promote this good endeavor, they began to promote it, call people to it, as the last name said, whoever calls the people to that which is good, will receive the good that comes from it, and the one and equal to the one who does it all the way down to the day of judgment and the one who calls was evil, we'll get the recompense just like the one who does it all
the way until the day of judgment and there will be no diminishing of it. So they call the people to this good, they promote this good, they attract people to this good. So this group begins to build
the area where they reside, it begins to be populated, they start to occupy that area, they start to buy the houses, they start to buy the land, they start to open up stores, they start to set up their institutions, their businesses, whatever their activity, their name, their influence is known in that area. And again, not because of any ethnicity, so they no Arab town,
no African town,
no Asian town, if anything, they might call it Muslim town.
Once they secure assistance and support from the other Muslims, they begin to establish committees to organize various services and to develop different resources. Now, one of the unique aspects of the Islamic community
is that it is not founded or inspired by ethnic nationalistic political special interests or personal ambitions.
Very important brothers and sisters, we have seen in the world today, there are many Muslims whose countries have been unlawfully illegally criminally occupied. At least there's 14 Muslim countries today that have been occupied, then maybe another 10 or 15 that is occupied by Muslims through the non Muslims.
That means non Muslims are still manipulating Muslim countries through Muslim puppets. Another 14 and 15 countries have been directly occupied,
people have been dispersed. And some of those people right here some of you sitting right here are the products of that dispersion.
And that is because
the criminal activities of the unbelievers, the last panel data he promised this would continue honest. But also what has happened is that in those countries, there are resistance groups. Every country where the Muslims have been dispersed, a resistance group comes up, unfortunately, because of lack of guidance, unfortunately, because of lack of knowledge. Unfortunately, because of lack of leadership, that resistance group usually winds up what have been built upon liberating the country.
And the province. Lawson overtly said that whoever raises their voice for nationalism, for tribalism, or any other kind of ism, this is a this is a call of jeconiah. So therefore, how can the liberation group for Palestine, the liberation group for Kashmir, the liberation group for any place, how can a group be successful if the call that they are calling is not La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu said nothing other than that?
Because they don't have to liberate Palestine. And they don't have to liberate Lebanon and they don't have to liberate Kashmir. They don't have to liberate Afghanistan. They don't have to liberate that why, because the grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, who wasn't even a Muslim, he understood that when something belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We don't have to liberate it. Because when Abraham came to Mecca to destroy the Kava, what did the grandfather of the Prophet lost him do? Did he gather some people together to liberate or to defend it? No. He told, listen, this house, it belongs to Allah subhanaw taala This house has a lord This house has a owner. So this
house, the owner of that house will defend it. But for me, I have some goats and some sheep that belong to me and I'm going to take them up in the mountains.
And all we have to do then we go to the story of Allah Subhan Allah tala kafer. File Allah buka the US haberfield atomia
Allah Allah, Allah Allahu Qaeda home, Gita de Allah gives us the story. What was the what was the effect of those people but we don't believe it.
If the Muslims in Palestine and May Allah bless all those and give all those the rewards for what they have done and what they will do, and we are not the judge of them.
But if the Muslims of Palestine if the amount of Muslims in Palestine who pray the Juma prayer at AXA at Masjid Al Aqsa, if the amount of people that pray Salatu Juma at Masjid Al Aqsa, if they were also praying the federal and the Isha prayer at Beth Israel after the matter would have been finished.
And this goes true for all the Muslims. Because our call has got to be La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah a lot of them I will call an hour liberation has got to be only for a loss upon dollar only for the deen of Allah only to raise the name of Allah to establish the Quran to establish the sooner and for this Deen and only for this deed. Otherwise Allah will continue to humiliate us and frustrate us and disgrace us at the hands and feet of our enemies.
The Islamic community is the one that is established and sustained to promote cultivate and entrench the message and the tradition of the Quran and Sunnah. Wherever Muslims reside, we already have the power.
There's enough Muslims in this room I didn't say in the whole Melbourne, actually there's enough Muslims in this room that if they stood for the Quran, and for the Sunnah, sapan law in a matter of two or three years, the whole condition would change.
The Muslims in this room, the men that's in this room, if these men in this room, if all of you committed yourself to pray the federal in Jamaica and pray the Isha prayer in Jamaica, and if you put your hands in the hands of some Amelia
You'll find in a couple of years your condition will change. But maybe you don't want to make that commitment. Maybe you think you've got the inside track. You got you know enough to be here. You know enough to see you you know enough Akira you went to the University of this and that was God talking to you. What do you know about
you think you know, you think that you're enough Muslim, you think you don't get to do that you think there's something different today than it is yesterday, you don't think you have to make the fudger prayer, you think you can make it long as you praying five times a day anywhere and everywhere you think you can make it like that? The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam said different. He said you will know the monophonic wound from my oma because they have a problem and making the ledger and the issue of prayers in Japan.
That was the verdict on a lot of us sitting here. See a lot of Muslims they will talk about jihad.
They will talk about
Islamic State. They will talk fig, they will talk aqeedah
they will talk about the hawk.
They want to talk talk talk, talk talk. They want to point point point point point. They want to blame, blame blame, they want to criticize they want to say those people who don't feel good to be the people of their day is a move to the I don't even know this cottagey don't feel this sushi. Those are selfie. Those is Wahhabi talk, talk, talk, talk talk. I say if we want to talk Meet me at the budget.
We want to plan let's plan after the budget prayer. Let's plan after the after the Isha prayer. Let's meet let's talk before and after fudger and Isha behind the Imam.
And then let's discuss what our relative Amir's wherever we came from what area what my Amir said to me, let's try to get our images together.
Let's work like that. All the different groups that's represented here. Let's get our imams together. Let's get the meals that we set up our chairman's, I will lead us let's get them together and ask them what's the deal?
What's happening? What's the problem? Why you guys can't get together? Why you guys can't get together and choose whoever knows the most court and whoever knows the most of the Sunnah. Whichever view is the oldest among you. I can't you guys get together and do that. What's the problem?
If we don't ask them to do that they won't do it for another 50 years.
Inevitably, the first challenge and responsibility of this community is to establish the worship and to establish the place where the worship led better is taught performed and preserved. The first thing the prophets last name did when he entered Medina. When he entered Medina, the first thing he did the first task, the first challenge that the province of San settled was the issue of the establishment of the mosque
not getting his own self a house
not getting a little hall where they can have the little play the little Domino the cars and smoke the little arugula, Hubley bubbly, or whatever.
That was what he did. The first thing he did was the establishment of the mosque. And from what I understand from the Sierra, there were two young boys that had some land which they owned.
And they offered it to the province allows them free Israel Muslim blossom take this land from us. He said no, I will only take it if I pay for it. So the Messenger of Allah saw some he paid for it.
And with his own hands and with the help of those people, they built the message. And the Messenger of Allah so awesome. He accepted from the believers, a room off of that Masjid for himself and for his family.
This is the first Mosque, the first town hall.
The first measure is the first place of congregation, the first senate of the Muslims, the first government of the Muslims, not just a mosque, the first university of the Muslims. So the first thing we need to do is once we break down all these different divisions and all that there we need to come together and build a great big mosque and Melbourne.
a mosque at least the size of this building right here.
I mean top and bottom two to three floors, the same amount of space that the brothers have seen mother spaces sisters got to have
a big mosque.
If there are 80,000 Muslims in Melbourne, I don't know what the number is. You got to build a Masjid that holds at least 20,000
that becomes a central mosque. That's the jammy mosque. So during the week, everybody played a little local MOS. But you get together and all the names and all the leaders and all the guys to get the names and all that day you get them to agree that on Juma shut down
low mass down and go to the jamee Mosque.
Can you see the power of the Muslims you see the respect of the non Muslims then that mosque is the place where we will be able to put the Islamic University. We put the Islamic college we put the Islamic Senate, we put the Islamic Town Hall then we don't have to rent this kind of Hall no more.
So you can have this kind of gathering like this every week, because it'd be held place
Why can't we do that? You got enough money in this room right here right here to do that. In this room. We just had to lock all the doors and put some great big guys there. Don't let nobody else
As matter of fact Listen, before we leave here tonight we're gonna talk about that.
The community is the town hall, the Senate the masjid the Methodist congregation place around and behind the leadership. This is the place of their worship their education their planning their to conduct an administrative affairs is the place where they conspire Yeah, say they conspire we got right to conspire by conspiring against us.
We got a right to conspire, but Allah subhanaw taala only allows us to conspire for the good. He says
what Avenue Allah
wa taqwa wallet Avenue Allah Odin isn't one, he said and conspired together join together cooperate together, promote together for what do and taqwa but don't join together, cooperate together, conspired together for Islam, sin and corruption.
From this Masjid measureless they develop and cultivate their faith. they assess their resources, they plan their future, and they fortify their source of guidance. This concept is one of the cultural dynamics of the Islamic community.
To sustain this effort, there is another set of principles necessary because that is only the building process. The next process is called the executive principles. One, they must be committed to the discipline of hearing and obeying some avatar
in the collection of human knowing the ahaadeeth collection to outline a hadith of him knowing
he mentioned the Hadith there.
That is a long Hadith. He mentions the Hadith upon us the obligation of following my son and as soon as
he goes on, he says, and to hear and to obey, even if a leader is chosen from among you, who is from the black habit, he says, slave who got a head like a raisin.
Now you think about that, now.
Think about it at that time, the very last thing that the atoms of that time was ever thinking about was that a habit she slave somehow became their leader. And to make sure the prophet SAW Sam gave the description of him that he had a head like a razor.
That means that in their eyesight, he was not a handsome person. And then I said he was dark black, ashy wrinkled up.
The atoms never never thought of their minds. They never ever thought in their minds they would ever have to follow a man like that. So the process awesome gave gave them the furthest most remote example. Mashallah, Allah subhanaw taala he produced a leader of the Muslims like that is that his name was but I live in Russia
Mashallah, he became the governor
of Syria of Damascus. His grave is there in Damascus today. And they call it a masterpiece. These are the widest adages you're going to find. But they call the master, beloved, Satan to be led by the love and how the prophets have also made this prediction. Do you think that some people from Sham ever thought in their minds, they would be following a black man who would be the other man, the Sahaba of the prophet SAW them living with them. It happened. So the prophets Allah loves him, give us this example so that you and I, when we think about a person who we don't like somebody who we don't want to follow, you know that the Arabs they don't like the Pakistanis, and the Pakistanis,
they don't like to Adams
you know, in the end, the Africans don't like nobody.
No, I don't mean that. I don't mean that brothers.
I could have switched it around. You know, I switch it around sometimes. You
know, the issue here brothers and sisters, honestly, is that
Allah subhana wa tada made it so that we have to hear and obey. Because it may be that someone who we don't like the way they look, we don't like where he came from, you know, he don't say I am. He don't say, well, Bardeen, he got the board together.
Voila, choose him.
That's what the Buddha said
about, about the king's name.
So why chose him? We better is that we stronger than him we look better than than we originally choose him. Because that was the choice. The last one was Allah made our responsibility as Muslims to prepare ourselves to hear to obey. So when the when the economy is called inside the mosque, and we line up, the Imam says still suffers.
the mom is commanding you telling you line up straight in the rows shoulder to shoulder the mom is telling you that you got no choice about it. But that's only in the mosque. As the mom says assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah Salaam Alaikum. Everybody's gone.
If the mom says sit down, people say well you
Johnson on a you saw it.
you know after the data switched up on Juma we pray first and Juma we on the Juma we talk first, and then we pray last on the eighth, we do just to reverse.
We pray first. And after that we supposed to tell the modern Muslims after after, after the prayers over the aftermath, and all that first, he get up the top, Muslim broke breaking out, they started the barbecue, the kids running all around, the brothers talking, everybody got on new clothes, the sisters walking around, and the mommy talking again about him.
Because the Muslims will have no respect.
If the Hatim of the Muslims had respect,
he would tell everybody, Everyone sit down.
And they would be sitting just like this he could deliver to those 4000 those 5000 people as he's supposed to, but he cannot.
Because the people that are here and in and obey
all Muslims, this will produce the effect of regulation and accountability among them. If we have no accountability and no regulation amongst us. It's a freefall. It's every man for itself is just a little thing that we set up. You know, this is the brothers the Amir and his brother, the President, he's the chairman. Whatever it is, we just set it up like that. So people think we got a little organization together, but in reality, nothing happening.
We're fooling each other. This is an affair. This is deceit. This is deception.
We must establish the basic services, they must harness the basic resources. It is the duty of the Magister shooter is the duty of the people who who are the people, the custodians of the MOS, the custodians of the Islamic community, it is your duty to produce services for the community.
If you cannot produce a service,
then get out to sea. Go sit home and let somebody else sit in that seat. Whether you are the Emir, you are the Imam or whatever. If you don't have the time, if you don't have the energy, if you don't have the ability to commitment to serve the people and give the people what they need. You need to give up that spot and let somebody else come in and do that. I don't care who you are.
No matter who you are, you could be you could be a graduate of the University of the Kava.
If there is such a thing,
you could be the Mufti of almost DS.
If you're unable to serve the people, because you don't really have no time, you don't have the commitment.
You need to move out of that spot. Maybe you serve the people in a different capacity, because this is lamb needs workers. There's another effort that I remember it says and it may be just a part of some form the atoms will know it says
men say the next amendment hardness, say to whom
whoever serves the people is their sacred.
He is the Amir.
The Amir is the man. First one to wake up last one to go to bed.
He is the man that cleans, washes, regulates watches, monitors. He's the mover the shaker he's the man that would he listened to the ideas. He's sacrificing for the people. He got a feeling for the people. He cries for the people. He works for the people and they see him like that all the time. That's the kind of a meal that we need. We only know people
No big hats, big heads,
big names, big fobes.
We don't need them kind of people.
Because the companions of the prophets and a lot of stuff there was not like that.
I don't know why. But as I'm reading the serum, I did not find many of the companions. The prophet SAW something like that.
Even the Messenger of Allah, so a lot of them, did you know, that after he was 40 years old, he fought all those battles after the age of 40. And did you know that he fought in at least 17 major battles after he was over the age of 50.
That means he was carrying on his body. 14 kilos of armor,
while the sun was like 36 degrees Celsius,
up and down mountain riding on a horse riding on a camel riding on a donkey and then fighting in the battles. How could you have done that, if you would like that?
Now the prophet SAW Sam wasn't eating a whole lot, a
whole lot of whatever it is that we eat.
the companions of the Prophet lost them. They was lien, tough, hard.
Men, and most of them who were fighting. They already was over 4045 and 50 years old. I asked you this, what can the 4550 year old men in this room do?
If I told you to run back home and come back here, you couldn't do it?
in Mecca, we were standing in Mecca one day,
Mashallah the Saudis had won. They won the finals for the World Cup or something. They didn't win the World Cup. They just got to the finals.
You know, the World Cup. You guys know what it is. So there was all rundown young guys all running through the streets and everything like they had fought the war beat the yahudi. And everybody. They were blowing horns and waving the Saudi flag. And in the back of the cars, I thought, man, man, maybe they just maybe they just took Jerusalem back.
So what are they doing? They won the finals of the of the World Cup
So you get the young boys kicking the ball through the streets. And the old men sitting up on the side of the road with the ball in their bellies.
So then, what can young boys kicking a ball? And the men who swallowed the ball, what can they do?
Now, it's not really a joke. It is sad. It is tragic, that we don't have young men who have the spirit of jihad, or vigilance, or defense or consciousness or discipline, because they play in games.
And we don't have old men
to govern those and guide those. We don't have the old men, the government guide, and to be the example for those people, you get the separation there. And so what I meant by that I'm given an analogy really, that we have two separate groups, that itself, we need to change.
The Muslims was established the basic services that they must harness the basic resources, basic resources of community means human resources and material resources. Let's get understand this human resources means Allah Subhan Allah says, what to J hidden feasability la de
w said, the American one to school, and while means money, property, and physical, your energy, your talents, that's what we need. If the Muslims want to achieve something, you got to do the same thing the Jews do. Same thing the Christians do. The same thing the Buddhists do, same thing the Hindus do. Same thing the ideas do same thing behind us do the same thing everybody does. You got to come with your people your skills, you got to come with your money and your property, bring it together. If you don't want to do that, you are going nowhere.
Kaffirs will be kicking dust in your face,
the rest of your life and the rest of your children's lives until you make up your mind to bring your property and your money and your person and your skills and bring them together and make them available to the Gema.
The Muslims must make the correct assessment of their environment.
We must think.
Think cut off the TV.
Cut off the radio, take that mp3 out of your ear.
Think about your situation Allah says in
Allah Xena Yes, crew, LA, Mama pueden wala Genova him.
they are thinking about the creation of the heavens and earth. They're thinking about their condition. They're thinking about their society, they're thinking about their nation, they're thinking about the world, we have to think make the right assessment of our condition, we cannot just be reading the Quran as it just is a must have. It is not just a must have. The Quran is a dynamic set of principles. We cannot be reading the sooner just memorizing Hadith and talking about principles of Akita and blah, blah, blah, now has about the society, who is controlling the society?
Who is controlling our resources? Who is building the roads, who controls the communications, who controls the food, the irrigation, who controls the agriculture, who controls the power, who controls the water?
Who controls the land?
We have to think about that.
Because when we make the correct assessment of our environment, and we develop a spirit of competitiveness, Allah subhanaw taala told us first ethical hierarchy, first ethical hierarchy, the word first abiku come from the verb subaqua, to swim, to compete, to try to be better than the other and goodness fasttactical hierarchy compete, strive with each other for what higher, a lot wants to be competitive, competitive against the kuffaar. If we wanted to be competitive, nothing wrong for the Muslims to have contests, who would be the best? Allah subhanaw taala says that he is the one in particular the deity who allocution Quran, Allah, Allah.
to see which one of us would be the best in our content and our candles, the Muslims have to strive and have a develop a spirit of competitiveness. Muslims have to be vigilant, vigilant. Muslims have to be vigilant. That means your eyes open, ears open listening, watching checking what's going on. The Muslim is not the one that somebody sneaks up on him and robs his dignity. The Muslim is not the one that somebody sneak up on his family and robbed their virginity. The Muslim is not the one that somebody sneak up on him and plot on him. And all the while he's sleeping the children
know, the Muslim is vigilant, watching, checking. Even he's watching and checking his women.
how a man allows his wife to go out the house with perfume, paella, his wife to go out without a hijab. I let his wife to go out just mixing with men how to manage his wife to do that. The Prophet some of them gave a name for that man
was it was that name they use? They use.
This is the man he does not mind his wife shaking hands with men. He don't mind his wife sitting down next to him and being chummy with them.
He don't mind leaving his wife in Hollywood another man. He don't mind his wife leaving the house with lipstick and perfume on and all that in the door.
He already saw that when she got up she put on mascara she
might leave like that. He is the youth.
And the Prophet so awesome said the man is dead you won't even look at him on a day of judgment.
He won't even look at you.
Because you let your prized possession
your wives and your your your wives and your daughters you let them go like that.
Muslim Muslim has to be vigilant. He must guard himself he must guard his family he was God His society was God his community wherever the Muslims are that is supposed to be a place that people want to live. The non Muslims should want to live in the Muslim community because they no drugs,
no alcohol and no fitna. No loud music playing no crazy dope boys running around.
The property is safe. Their person is safe. The venue
You have the properties in the Muslim community goes up, everybody wants to live there because the Muslims patrol that area.
That's what happened in Medina. When the Muslims came to Medina, everybody wanted to be there. The Jews didn't want to move out
after they conspired, poor man,
the Christian didn't want to move out. The ones that didn't accept Islam didn't want to move out, they stay. And when it was time they paid the jizya. This would happen all over the Muslim world. People wanted to stay with the Muslims because to be with the Muslims to be prosperous, to be with the Muslims to be safe. The big Muslims the move would progress to be Muslim there was justice. So Muslims are the people who are competitive, vigilant. And finally, the Muslims have empowerment, Muslim strive for empowerment. We want above all the houses in the neighborhood.
When a church has a nobody goes to the church we bought a church to
when the bars go out into the pub go out of business, we bought a pubs tournament the school's
Muslims look for every property that comes up for sale, we buy it in our neighborhood and we got the money.
We don't need fancy cars, we did buy the property
called another Muslim come live there until in that area, Muslims own everything.
The Muslims cannot be isolationists.
That means you can't just be righteous people living over in a corner someplace. You can't say the other side of Miss kaphas does is more not fix those D brother those are deviants over there. And we the only righteous people and we over here
because you will not be able to feed yourself just because you're righteous.
You will not be able to deal with the service that you need because you're righteous I always ask brothers who are always criticizing other people this one is wrong that was wrong and capitalism and socialism and so blah blah I asked my kids when you're sick or hospital you go to
the you go you go to the righteous hospital the ones who got it what what kind of doctor your wife go to a she's pregnant, you got to go to that prenatal examination. When a guy got put that that glove on all the way up to the elbow.
But that there you go, is that Dr. Yunus me what methods he got?
What guidance is that doctor have? What grocery store you go to what farm you go to? What school do your children go to? Do you pay taxes is your landlord a righteous person also,
because these are the services that control us? I say the Muslims need to get control of this services and stop pointing at each other. Take control first as you take control, then we can start talking about our house. We get our house together first take control for us. We start cleaning up the house.
must be prepared to teach and preach their religion, teach and preach their message. while integrating and interacting I say we should teach and preach. But we must also interact and integrate. Yes the prophets a lot of them. He brought the teaching and the preaching to Medina didn't he? But he also interacted and integrated.
The first rule the prophet SAW stems establish the first principle the process all Sam established was a simple one. He said to the Muslims when they arrived in Medina, he said to me, what chakra was the lamb men after Ramadan?
Give food. Look how beautiful that is. measured. Some people just arrived. And when they arrived, they just start giving out food. That's what the rape trials do.
That's what the Catholic Relief Society does. That's what all these these are missionaries are doing in the Muslim countries. They are arriving with trainloads boatloads plane loads of food and medicine because they know that they will be greeted. So he said to Tom, what chakra salon. Men are after woman lamb tarrif give food, distribute food, and also take the invitation.
And also give the good reading and the challenge the good reading to whom you know and whom you don't know. This is the social principle of Islam.
Also, the Muslims must learn to interact with the other community, learn to interact with the intellectuals learn to interact with the politicians learn to interact with the businessman. I didn't say be like them. I didn't say live next to them. I didn't say chill with them and drink with them and eat well I didn't say that. I said enter
wracked with them, do business with them.
People who are politicians make deals with them. The promises awesome, he did it he made treaties.
Read the spirit of the prophets lost them.
The spirit of the prophet SAW them and during the madonie period is full of treaties. What are those treaties, those deals, the process often struck deals agreements between the non Muslims in the Muslim, the Jews and the Christians, between the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims and the people who was the desert Adams, the pagans, he made deals with him with the kings, or the princes and rulers and different places he made deals with him, we can make deals also.
Also, not only make deals with them, but the prophet SAW said he borrowed money from them.
You know, the story of when a Jew came to the prophet SAW Sam came to Medina came to the message of the province of a yahoodi came to the message of the prophet SAW them and stood up over the process. And they said, Oh, Mohammed, give me my money, grabbing his clothes and give me my money. And the comparison process him stood up to kill him.
They want to kill him. How can a yahoodi come into my house and grab his clothes like that talking like that?
Now the problem is awesome said don't do that. This man has a heart over me. He has a duty or right over me. Is there any one of you who can help me to pay off this debt? So it was man even a fan really low? And he said Oh, so the last the last them? I have some palm trees in the fall in the Medina, I would give it to him.
That yahoodi He said, No, I came to see if you were in fact a prophet.
Because if you were a prophet, you would honor this debt. And if you are not the Prophet, you would abuse me. I said to Allah, either in the law, under Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So we see the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He's interacting, how he's borrowing money from God, he's doing business with them. We can do business, we can interact. But we hold our aqidah and we hold our integrity, and we hold on to our Islam, and we maintain the leverage of our power base.
The Muslims must be conscious and focused upon creating and sustaining institutions, education, commercial social services, communication, dour administrative services, institutions, they should be all around what a Muslim saw institutions. Otherwise, they will be subordinate to the Catholic institutions. And the capitals will make them dysfunctional, and the capitals will make them sterile and the society, that's the choice we have is to build our own or to be subordinate to somebody else.
Number six, they must be committed and dynamic in the work of Dawa, they must develop a new profound platform of doubt. Now, what does that mean? That means that if there are four or 500 600 people here in this room in other rooms here today,
then when we make a call for dollar, we go to our neighbors, we go to our colleagues, we go to our co workers, we go to our family, if we are new Muslims, and we tell them something dynamic, you got to come, you got to hear, I've been talking to you, I've been dealing with you, I've been pleading with you, you got to come and hear this because I can't explain it. And you bring them out 600 Muslims that do that, and try to do that, for the next 90 days. 600 Muslim will bring 200 non Muslims. And my experience is that if 200 non Muslims come in a room like this, and they see that clear bottle of water of Islam, whatever they thought about Islam, they will get to see it that
night, they will hear it, they will see it, they will understand it. And I will tell you what the results usually are. My experience is that usually out of every 100 people that come to a lecture or non Muslims that come to a lecture 10 or 12 accept Islam, just like that,
just like that, because it's the cousin of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah Subhan Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala filed, re, he's the doer of whatever he pleases, and the hearts of the people is between the fingers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when the last one Allah wants the person, he comes out, he comes to hear, he sees it's clear for him. He says, Oh, I understand, Oh, I like that, oh, I want that.
And I have seen it so many times over and over and over. Just to give you an idea of that I have witnessed myself I have seen myself just in the last two years, I've seen over 3000 Shahada instances, which is just like this 3000 and just the last couple of years 10,000 in the last seven years,
our co workers,
our people that we work with and deal with
Every single day, the ones we go to school with every day. Some of them want to be Muslim, but they don't understand that because of the Muslims themselves.
Sometimes we got to move the Muslims out of the way for people to see Islam.
And I'm telling you, brothers and sisters, that if you do this work of Tao in this city, you do it unselfishly, it don't have to be no dynamic brother. Don't you don't have to get no dynamic brother to come here and do no doubt the dour dynamic enough by itself. The water is clear. If you put this here next to a dirty battle. The people will accept this one all the time.
It's just that the Muslims are in the way. Most of the time when people say I don't like Islam, they really talking about Muslims.
Muslims out the way and let the people see Islam. And you're going to see martial law, something happening in front of you, people will start coming into Islam so fast, you won't you won't even have teachers form.
The problem, I think with some of the Muslims is that you don't want these other people to become Muslim because you think they might move you out the way.
But that's the way Allah works. If that's going to happen, it's going to happen anyway. You might as well join what's gonna happen.
they must be aware of the world, you must be aware of the society do not live in a bubble. Understand the physical wackier ask the students of knowledge, as the scholars look around yourself, go to the internet, ask questions of scholars who know as Muslim scientists, Muslim doctors, as Muslim educators as Muslim businessmen, what is going on in business? ask them what's going on in politics, in government, in the society in the world, ask them so you know,
because the Muslims have to develop something called contemporary and relative fit.
I didn't say we changed, there's no change in the film.
But the film itself has got to address the contemporary and relative situations.
We don't have a static thing in Islam.
The fake is there. The fact is there to facilitate the Quran and Sunnah static, doesn't move, it's perfect. But the the understanding, it is moving, it is dynamic for every time and every place for all people for all conditions and our our scholars, our students of knowledge, they have to address the contemporary situations.
Then, we will see that people are going to respect Islam, because they will see that the Quran and the Sunnah addresses, all the situations, brothers and sisters,
I want to thank you so much. And I want to finally say to you that the Muslims must be connected to the scholars and the students of knowledge, who have the correct Akita and that the delille, which is presented by to us by our pious predecessors, that means every Muslim, you can't be trying to follow Islam and look into Islam and learn Islam, and you're connected to no scholars, you're connected to no students of knowledge, how you think the knowledge will come to you.
If you unplug, you're gonna get some power for your computer for your television, you can plug it in the wall,
you can just go buy some new t television, or buy yourself a new computer, you don't even plug it in the wall. You can have a car and you don't put it next to the petrol pump and put some gas in there. How you don't get knowledge, you're not near the scholars, you don't have the books of the scholars, you're not next to the students of knowledge, how are you going to get knowledge you tend to go to the bookstore, buy some books, you crazy, you confused? The best thing you're going to get. Buying a whole lot of books and bring it inside your house is a whole lot of confusion.
The knowledge does not come by the books. The knowledge comes through the scanners. It comes through the scholars into the students of now. If you want to be something you want to get the knowledge become a student of a student of a student, at least make sure that you authenticate your knowledge and that you are upon the correct aqidah because if you have no correct connection with Allah subhanaw taala it's all button. It's all useless. It doesn't mean nothing. Make sure your connection with the last one that is correct. And make sure that your knowledge is correct. Make sure that you are upon the end and upon the Sunnah of the prophet Salalah you should build constructive and
healthy relationships with the leaders and intellectuals of the other society. I said we don't have to have a we don't always have to have an adversarial relationship with the non Muslims. Why Muslims are we talking about the Kaffirs?
You don't have to be calling people Kaffirs.
They are non Muslims.
But why you got always the capitals this in a capitalist day
when nine of the 10 things that you need in life came from the Kaffirs
when you came in this country
I want to remind most of you who want to stay here in this Catholic country, you got the Catholic stamp on your passport,
you got the capital money in your pocket, you got the Kaffir picture on that money.
And you probably got a Kapha landlord.
So why you keep talking about the kaphas develop a healthy relationship with the non Muslims. I don't say we join them. I don't say we imitate them. I don't say we love them. They don't love us. They don't join us. They don't follow us. But we have to develop a healthy relationship so that we can get the most out of the worst situation. Because the prophets loves him. He taught us that.
He said, Well, as you know, in Allah, you have been mostly
Allah upon dialysis. And when a greeting is given to you follow it up with one that is what equal or better
the Muslim was engaged in. so and so and Taiwan themselves as the last one. What was the summary? What was what was unhappy? What was ob sobre? And then the last one that says, What do I saw the summary? What do I saw bin, Mohammed,
the Muslims have to forgive, the Muslims have to forgive and let go. The Muslims have to pardon each other. Muslims have to cooperate with each other. The Muslims have to become brothers and sisters to each other. The Muslims have to support each other, you're gonna have to do this and put that pill away.
Whatever it is, you hold him for that other Muslim, you know that enmity that envy, that jealousy, whatever it is, you hold it against that Muslim group or person put it away.
I don't say follow the deviant people. I didn't say that. No, we don't follow the deviant people.
But we adopt the relationship with the Muslim to get the best from that Muslim, because the Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. Even if he is Australian, even if he's a sinner, he is still a Muslim. We do not call a Muslim that commit sins a Kaffir. A Muslim never becomes a Kaffir until they become a martyr.
If they make Ruda, they say they make a render of a man. They say I'm no longer Muslim, and they make copper then they become careful for a Muslim does not become a Catholic because of the deviants. And they don't become a Catholic because of their sin.
So Muslims and be careful.
Because one day, the person who you call a Kaffir, because of the weak situation they're in five years from now, you may find out that you are in a situation. And you will not want somebody to call you whatever you call them.
And we know the issue of the huddle, think about the heads about the huddle. Nobody knows what their culture is going to be. So be careful when you call somebody a Kaffir. That name of that accusation goes up into the heavens and comes back down on the one who is really a Kaffir.
We leave it for the olema and the fukuhara. The judges of the Muslims, those who may called are the ones who make the assessments, we live for them to make that determination and not us. We treat every Muslim as a Muslim. If they are centered, we punish them for their sins. If we are if we are able, if we have the authority, if they are sinners, and we know they commit the sin of their deviance, we point out the deviance to them with join, right we forget the rock forbid wrong, we advise we do everything we can but a Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. And I say we should put brotherhood first. And put the differences after that. While
all Muslims, the prophets last name said we should think positive. We should think think positive and speak good about the Muslims and their condition. He says let him who believes in along the last day. either say what's good or what. Or keep quiet. If you don't have something good to say about another Muslim, I keep quiet. Just shut up. Close your mouth. Bite your tongue, zip your lips, whatever you want to call it. You don't have something good to say keep quiet. We don't need to hear it.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave us this kind of edit.
He told him in hostile Islam a modeling taco man a young as part of being a good Muslim to leave alone. That was none of your business. That means if you know if a Muslim is doing something, you ain't got nothing to do with that mind your business. Why are you all in my business? Why are you all in somebody else's business? Why are you talking about everybody else? You don't have a house you got some children. You don't need to tie your shoes, your prop your socks. You don't need to clean your house up your backyard. You don't need to deal with your own children your own situation. Have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately?
speak good, promote good if you hear about a Muslim that you disagree with, somebody asked you about that person say Mashallah, I like that brother. I like that system. He's a good brother Chava May Allah forgive his sins and Shall I forgive my sins also Finnish Why is it difficult to say that you lost nothing?
USA I love Britain I agree what they do and I'm on day saying by Peter You didn't say that
you just Patna overlooking the false because this is the man of Islam and helps us to come up brings us up close together. Your brothers and sisters. Thank you very much for your patience and your tolerance for hearing me to address this issue. I hope there's something that I said was of some benefit to you inshallah.
