Got on your head that's coming off.
Them cannot but your name being Fatima Salima or whatever it is, they don't care nothing about that.
you know exactly what I'm saying.
It might already have happened, you get the goods might already be damaged.
Because it's the real world you live in out here. There's no play thing. Since if you go out here without your hijab on, you go out there hanging out with these capitalists, these Kappa girls hanging out in these places. You won't do a little shake load dance. You won't get the guy on the no lights here low tune whatever it is. They're gonna get you after that you feel disgraced. You feel a shame. Now you don't know how to get back. And then some of y'all wind up you made a mistake. You can get it back now you're pregnant what you gonna do now?
Now you got to go to one of them clinics.
You can't tell your family about it. So what you got to do now?
Go one and clinics get an abortion.
You got to kill a baby. Now you got mud on your hands. You don't kill somebody. First you went out disgrace yourself. Now you got to kill somebody. or kill a baby that is
if you don't kill the baby. Now what you do you bring the baby home? What is it?
It's a bastard.
A little sweet, pretty little bastard.
That's not a curse. It's a curse what you did, but the word is not a curse. It's in the dictionary. That's what it is. It's an illegitimate child. It's a child that's born out of wedlock. Isn't that the definition of it? Not sure your mother and your father.
They can get attached to the little baby. They can feed the baby and raise the baby up for you and all that but you don't brought shame home.
And this is what's happening to our young girls. And this was happening to the young brothers. And the young brothers the same way they're not getting pregnant but they they impregnate they hidden and they hidden and jumping out somewhere.
See all of this comes about from disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala and see the young brothers young sisters. They're not going to present most of them because they're not gonna go No, they're gonna go rob nobody the sisters. The sisters is gonna wind up in a prison of disgrace.
Live in what a cafe
raising a little baby Kapha live in like a cafe. So they live in in a prison of disgrace. But the young brothers
who want to sell drugs want to rob people.
You don't want a brother in a prison of disgrace or you wind up in prison and a prison ain't enough for you got one up in the hospital. Nothing enough for you eventually you're gonna wind up dead in the grave disgrace punished in the grave. And then when you meet a loss upon Allah tala, you got some more fire coming to you.
Now this is the choice that we have
the choice that you have going on Muslims is to be young Muslims. Now let's talk about what it means to meet this challenge.
Let me read you one little shot had a little shot one because I want to I will read no long one. Not because I want to buy leads.
I want to buy to get no attitude now cuz
I'm talking to me, I'm not talking to you. I'm talking to college.
Don't get no attitude because we're just talking here. We're just kicking it live. That's all we're doing. We're just keeping it real. We just give it back and fall so we can see what the picture look like. So we can decide we want to do we can make a choice to either meet the challenge
or gone down that road that you know where you're gonna wind up that that's all we want to talk about. And it's all your choice. There will be no twisting arms in about one point no fingers and nobody can blame nobody calling you by no names. Because after this year if poverty in the street all I'm gonna see isn't it as a young Muslim how you feel sound like what's going on how you feel you I hamdulillah Mashallah. I will say
that meanness that day.
Now, I'm not gonna do that.
Because the choices you can make yourself especially those of you that are 13 years old and older. Now for those as younger Don't worry about it.
Don't worry about your father's your older brothers they can guide you the right way the elders and master can guide you the right way. You just listened good but I'm saying you're younger than 13 but those are 13 and older.
You better think real carefully about what I'm telling you tonight. Or this afternoon. Cuz you don't listen to this. You know, listen to nothing.
Because your mothers and fathers and uncles and aunts and the elders here in the masjid they will kick it like this. And when we get outside of the masjid, I got something else to tell you. I might even say here
since I got 11 children
I grew up in Brooklyn, Bed Stuy Do y'all know Bed Stuy?
Harlem, New York? Any like no la, area call
mall. And this is like a Disneyland
gangsters. I need to take y'all back to Brooklyn.
So I'm telling you, I'm telling you brothers for real.
Y'all got it sweet.
You got a chance Really?
My sons and daughters and other sons and other brothers and sisters that I've known for the last 20 years that I've raised up, they'll tell you what New York is. For real.
Brothers and sisters. Let me just do this little small Heidi from the province the last name
Ask the prophets a lot of what Salaam I'll just give it to you in English. His name was Sophia, Sophia, Abdullah.
coldly kill Islam as an Iraq.
meant to villa.
sama stuck in a man as the prophets allows him to love someone awesome. Tell me something about Islam
that I can ask of no one but you listen to what the prophet SAW said and told him he said say I believe in a law. And after that, the upright.
Just the main thing
to say to whoever that you meet, I'm a Muslim. I'm a Muslim. And I don't do that.
I'm a Muslim.
I'm not into that. I don't do those things. Man. I don't talk that way.
To talk like that around me.
Don't invite me to that.
Oh, go about your way. Do what you do. I do what I do.
I'm a decent Muslim. I feel lost upon with Allah. I'm looking down the road at my future. I got respect to my family. I got respect for myself.
You see a cat when talking to a sister he is supposed to be or sister talking to a Kappa. He's supposed to talk to them.
Tell a counselor step off.
He'd be better off if he stepped off. Tell him that. That's my sister. Don't have to be your blood sister. As a Muslim sister, the Cheshire Cat you'd be better off if you step off. And tell the Sister Sister you got no fear of Allah.
You getting respect for your family, you get the respect for yourself for your losses, and then go on about your business. That's all you can do. Because the free country I didn't call it free country free to do anything you want to do.
Say I believe in Allah. That means be straightforward Muslim. Don't hide Islam.
Don't be no sad with Muslim. Don't be non Muslim and secret.
Be straight up Muslim. Anybody asked you tell them your name. Tell them your religion. Tell them about the religion, invite them to it.
And after that have good conduct.
The problem is the last name said I had been slipped was what? to perfect good manners.
To present perfect good manners.
Travis, a lot of them said
in another very short one.
First, let me just talk about what we do if we want to make the right choices. I'll give that Hades the last few minutes while I leave
everyone to make the right choices. How do we do it? And we want to change I like how do we do it? And we want to be a good Muslim. How do we do it? We want to earn the mercy of Allah. How do we do it? We want the forgiveness of Allah. How do we do it?
We want respect. How do we do it?
We want our dignity back how do we do it? The first thing you need to do is all of us the old or the young. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Adam SATA was happy to be
All the children of Adam make mistakes. And the best of those make mistakes and those who do what?
They make Toba they come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala
the prophet SAW a lot of them said
it duck Good luck.
hazemag come to
what Mesa? Yeah, we'll
call it the NES, the Holton Hasson.
He said, something a lot of us Allah, Allah, be mindful of Allah, wherever you are.
That mean under all circumstances, in the school, on the job, in the street, in the masjid at home, when you're by yourself to be mindful of a lot. But if you make a mistake, he said, What? What a year it hasn't
follow up a bad deal with a good one.
Tim who had that will cancel that bad deed out the good deed will cancel out the good one, the bad one. Now he's not talking about cabeza.
Because a good deed is not going to cancel out of cabanes. A big a major sin. A major sin is only wiped out by what?
Toba? You got to come back to a law.
You got to cry to a law got to ask the law for repentance. Ask them to change your life. Change your heart, change your mind. Change your conduct. And then you got to swear to Allah and yourself. You're not going back that way no more.
You can make 12 a day and get up tomorrow smoking up a spliff.
Take another bottle of wine, lay down with another girl, Rob somebody else tomorrow, make 12 again, you can't do that. A lot doesn't accept that he only accepts it when it has lost
So what do we do first? Make Toba? Come back to Allah young Muslims come back to a lot older Muslims. Because here, everything I'm saying here.
I'm not just really talking to the young people, because a lot of what I'm saying here, the young people are the way they are because there's people in this room here who have set a pattern for the young people.
There's some older people that's in here, they've been here but been in the UK for 20 years. And the young boy saw them on the corners.
The young boy saw them out there. The young boys see that they got stones. They said and what are they doing wrong? They saw them as they were going upset. Well, if my uncle did it, I can do it. And my father did it. I can do it. So many of the young people is here is in the condition they in because the older people did it before they did it.
So I don't want to be like I'm beating up on the young folks, because I'm not.
I'm just in a what we call this is called I just got a ricochet.
ricochet you know, that means it just bounce off and come back to you.
So many of us, oh heads 50 years old 4540 3530 we doing still doing some of the stuff I'm talking to you about the young people still do.
But see, that's the old criminal. And that's the old fool.
And the prophets, Lawson said the worst of fornicators incentives is the old one.
Allah subhana wa Taala hates our old fornicator more than he do a young one.
Because the old fornicator he got no real reason to be falling kick no more. He just fornicating becomes a habit.
He got the fire no more he got the he got he got to find a way to do that.
That man, he'd been doing it for a long time.
So young people understand that many of you sell into the situation, or you will lead into the situation or you will allow into the situation. So that's something wrong that your mother's and your father's they allowed you
or you were led into it by an older brother, older sister or uncle.
But nevertheless, you responsible and I'm telling you, you got to make tau boy, do what you want to correct yourself. Go home and take a bath tonight. Because you're gonna die tomorrow, one of these tomorrow's you thinking that you're gonna wake up you're gonna die. Or one of the things that you're doing is wrong. Somebody who put a bullet in your head or knife in your back, you're gonna be stressed out. You ain't got no choice then
you're going right where you used to hang
and see good company.
If you make Toba, you can't make tablet and go back out in the same company. You can't do that. That's just like, that's just like having dirty clothes on taking a bath and putting on the same dirty stinking clothes.
No makes sense.
Your waters closed for a week. Now you decide to take a bath and you go clean there they put on the same clothes.
Some clothes almost standing up without a hanger.
Don't make sense.
Make Toba and then after that, see good company. Find a young Muslim that's trained.
Funny on Muslims. At least he's talking right? A young Muslim that Tila talking about a lot talking about the prophets, a lot of Islam. Find a young Muslim like that to be with
Look for a young Muslim, a decent young Muslim to hang with. Don't look for the
new seen on fools. Avoid Them. Find a young Muslim that believe in a lot. A decent young Muslim, a pious young Muslim or non Muslim.
A sensible, young Muslim.
Leave them capitals alone all together.
I'd hang out with a fortress Muslim flying out a castle. A fullest Muslim,
fullest Muslim and Lizzy Muslim, a capper he can lead you to the mosque he can say Mashallah have done a lot of stuff a lot. Nothing.
A fool is Muslim right now. And did he gonna sell stuff like Allah Mohammed goes to LA he can say caught on to something.
But a capital E leads you to nothing but the trash.
Next thing is make up your mind.
Make up your mind. Do something with your life. If you're in school, stay in school and be the best.
If you're in school, stay in school and be the best.
If you fail in school, you will fail the rest of your life I'm telling you right now.
If you fail in school, and that's all right, you can fail the rest of your life and get no job hey hi nobody first of all they people have got college degrees can't get no job there's right and wrong.
That's even here right now. He's got a college degree and he can't get a job. So now you know if you dropped out of grad school you
you got out of high school you over
you ain't got nothing you got nothing coming to you. Did you go live in council housing, you will be on welfare the rest of your life
in school Excel.
Except no DS and C's or 60s and 70s Muslim and school. What is Tablas is probably the toughest class
the cap is supposed to be asking the Muslim you got that homework? Can you help me out with the test
that's what that's capital that's the Muslim that good Muslim supposed to be the best whatever he's doing the Muslim is the best
come back to your dean come back to the masjid
come back to the dean. Come back to the masjid
that's what you got to do. Come back to this Dean. This Dean is where you say Dean is where your dignity is that was decent. Where your reputation is gonna be sound? What are you gonna get some knowledge and some guidance? Where are you going to be stabilized? Come back to the masjid god this is where you're gonna come when you die
you're gonna come back here anyway now
you don't come back here while you live in Are you gonna come back here when you die so you might as well come back. Come on back home. Come to my *. Come on in the masjid once a day it makes a lot
no matter what you're doing. Come in the masjid make your will do makes a lot you got to go make it make a whistle go home make a bustle come to the masjid makes a lot because if you keep coming to the masjid make us a lot what's gonna happen is the last panel is gonna give you enough ammunition to stop doing them since you're doing
but if you say to yourself well since I'm committing sins I know since coming to the message you've done then don't let no Muslim tell you man since you are doing wrong and I'm such I don't know why you're coming to Lhasa.
You know Muslim I tell you that. I can look I know what you'd be doing, man what you're doing in the masjid.
Does Ahmed and mastodon same thing you don't
ask for forgiveness. Ask the law for guidance as to not accept my prep as law to make me strong so I can stop doing some of the stuff I'm doing little by little day by day.
Because they know you brothers and sisters, that's strong, but you're gonna stop doing all the stuff you're doing overnight. I didn't.
I took Shahada in 1964 brother, he told you that.
But the first time I prayed five times a day I didn't care about no five times a day.
No, I didn't know Muslim was really doing that to about 1968.
But no days there were no messages.
We never know messages like this.
I heard that the Muslim supposed to pray five times a day when I took Shahada writing about it was really praying five times a day. I thought it was like making do it five times a day.
But 1968 I came and saw some brothers praying five times. I said, Do you brothers get together like this? Every day? He looked at me like I was crazy. So are you been Muslim? I said about five years.
like this every day? I can't we pray five times. I said for real.
Then it took me after 1968 about three more years to get my salon together. Mashallah. So what do you think from 1964? And to 1972? What do you think I would do? I'm not gonna make no confessions.
But you know about all the stuff I'm talking about, that I just stopped doing it by the way, so you know, I know.
So Yang Ofu may not if we talk, we'll talk a little bit outside.
So I'm telling you not gonna stop overnight.
Tip I don't think I can stop smoking weed, man to beat Muslim man. And just, you know, smoking habit.
Every day, every day, just smoke a little less than that, john. See, and then after that, after that, then smoke a joint every other day. And don't do it around, nobody go away out somewhere by yourself, like walk about a mile away, somewhere in the dark and smoke a half naked.
You put some eyedrops in your eyes and, and, and some lightsabers know that. Do all that. So what you're doing is you're building up in your mind that is wrong.
And so gradually, once you've established in your heart that is wrong,
then you're gonna stop doing it. So I'm not telling the man to keep doing it. I didn't tell him to keep doing it. He said he won't be Muslim. I feel like a hypocrite but I tell him to do the Muslim.
And then gradually stop doing what you're doing. Because if you're Muslim, you don't come to the prayer. You will read it and you go listen to the Sunnah of the Prophet loss and you will be with the Muslims. Even fast on the month of Ramadan when it comes so gradually, what's gonna happen is you're gonna get the admonition, you won't get the strength, day by day to stop doing something wrong that you're doing but the Muslim. So I'm telling you, brothers and sisters already Muslim.
don't flip overnight, you may know for yourself. But start to date. Come back to the dean. Give up the crime, and give up the criminals.
Change your image and change the role models.
Change your image and change your role models.
Correct your relationship with your parents.
Don't wait for your parents to break down and cry and tell you they sorry. Even though maybe they did something wrong. Don't wait for them to tell you they sorry. No, you are the one they fit. You are the one that raised you or that child you live in in their house. You are the young person. You go to your mother and father and you cry and you tell them that you're sorry. And then you begin to correct your behavior and do something good for your parents.
said he'll do something good for your parents. You don't obey your parents. Something gonna happen to you like that, like that young boy and sort of cat. Y'all resort to cat
resort of the cat and see but the young boy was disobedient and ungrateful and rebellious to a loss upon
this how last self about that young man. A lot of children put them in the ground just like that and replaced them and told his parents toto told him that his parents would be more pleased with him.
Don't be like him. Don't wait for something to happen to you because of your disrespect and disobedience to your parents. Correct your relationship with your parents. Correct your relationship with the Muslims. So you can walk past the masjid stop in and your head is up high. You got to be ducking.
You can be around this neighborhood. And you take care of neighborhood
and criminals. Those animals all around the neighborhood disrespective breaking in. When they see you they'd be ducking and dodging.
Correct your relationship, understand what it means to be decent. Understand what it means to be dignified, respect those three words decent, dignified, respect.
understand what that means because if you don't know what it means, you will,
understand that you are the future of Islam, you young Muslims, you are the future, all these old people and myself.
They bounced look at Oh, because I got that hidden must be profit like that. So Panama you'd like to enter the province allows them
but if I didn't have any and I'd be just as waiting
for that hidden here so young boys over push up on me
understand you young brothers and sisters You are the future
20 years from now for the hollobone being here. Some of these old brothers won't be here. Some of the younger brothers will be here be the moms and be the leaders. Y'all be the front right? taking over.
Take this whole neighborhood over with all these young Muslims in this neighborhood if y'all were soldiers, y'all come back to this day you take this whole area
this whole area and it's a little complex. I'm talking about the whole area
little hill a bit more pismo whatever it is
take over this whole town.
All these young Muslims on this side of town another side of town you take the whole place over
nobody can do nothing with a Muslim up the street.
They get us down to us this low Beantown
this this low being town it's a no big city.
But the Muslims in this city stood up
and did what they supposed to do, and identify themselves and establish the dean and establish this dowel.
You young listen to you could give 100 charters next week.
And 100 charters every week after that.
After you stop give us your heart is all around here. All the young brothers that have wives, and all the young sets that have husbands.
They would know what Islam is. Even if they didn't accept Islam, they would know what it is.
Correct your relationship with your parents understand what a decent dignified and respectful understand that you are the future of Islam.
Prepare yourself to be productive and responsible.
Prepare yourself take your place in the society.
don't prepare yourself to be holding up no buildings.
To pay yourself to be responsible. Take your place in the society. Take your place in the Muslim community. become responsible be young men, young women think dignified. The song.
are young Muslims.
Remember I told you
might be a little bit harsh, to a certain extent.
But the best deal comes from the hottest five.
I'm talking to you because I love you. Because I'm concerned about you. That's why I'm talking to you. I'm talking to you because I see myself right there.
I see my own children, my nephews right there. I'm talking to you because I want to see you start from a zero to a hero.
I want to see you get past those stumbling blocks and make them into stepping stones. I want to see you move from and give up the trash
and take hold of that treasure the last one daughter gave me what's the treasure
Illallah Muhammad Allah, Allah. Oh young Muslims, the soldiers for Lost Planet Allah Don't be soldiers for shaytaan be soldiers for love, respect yourself. Respect Islam, respect your community. Respect it, respect your family, or young Muslims meet the challenge. make the right choices. We asked the last panel with Allah to bless you and to guide you. Whereas a lot of give you strength whereas the last panel with Allah to enter your door. We asked the Lord to bless your families. We have a lot of bless the masjid and give strength to the man and all the young brothers around the who are setting the right examples. We have lots of blessing God all the young brothers and sisters
who striving to keep this Deen clean. We asked the last punk on to give them faith in the Lord to give them knowledge. We asked a lot to make their identity strong. We asked the last $100 to call the young brothers and sisters back to this Masjid. So you got to build a bigger one. from the ground up. We have to last 100,000 he joined all our hearts and love whereas the last $100 that Islamic teaching Institute you can become
instrumental to bind with mastic duck was so we can get all these young Muslims, build them up make them into soldiers inshallah we asked the last panel with Allah that we create 50,000 Muslims in the city of Sheffield the next 10 years 50,000 Yeah, what they do with us then?
Do you think that giving teenagers the freedom, access to Internet, TV? And all things like it is wrong?
Yeah, what is this question? Very straightforward. I'll say this that if a parent, if a parent wants to kill his children, the easiest way is just leave a loaded gun on the table
and let them play with it. Sooner or later, they will blow their brains out.
The other way that you can do it is just leave them in the house with the Internet, and the television, they will burn their brains out.
Burn the brains out is slower. So it's a slower death.
So if a parent allows their children to watch television without any supervision of a parent, allow their children just to go on the internet and use it without any restrictions. And that turns on a comment from the last panel without being irresponsible and for contributing towards facha and monka. Because if your son or daughter watches four hours of television a day, only four hours, I'll give you the statistics.
Only four hours a day in the course of a year. They have seen what 73,000 acts of fascia in one car, including fornication, adultery, murder, slander, drinking drugging, all kinds of foul actions that they saw on TV.
Now, so if you just want to let your children do that, it's up to you. But no, you shouldn't. It's wrong.
The parents need to take control of old televisions, and the past need to restrict the children's use of the Internet. Because the parents should know
that even those of us who are careful.
Every time I go in and check my email,
I got about 3040 emails and 20 of them. Y'all know what it is.
I can't even stop it.
Sometime I'm trying to delete the email, and it just pop up anyway.
You know what I'm talking about? You can't stop it. The the pornography, you can't even stop it, you have to ask for
If you are friends with someone who does not do anything like drugs, or alcohol,
Muslims longed to be transferred.
Upon with Allah says, Your friends are none other than Allah. His Messenger, Sam Walton and two believers will have no capital friends, no such thing as a capital friend.
No such thing as a capital friend. That's like a good snake.
That's like sweet poison.
I don't even exist. Oh, I didn't say you couldn't have decent relationships with non Muslims. You can have a decent relationship with business.
Academic going to school, neighbors, co workers,
you know, colleagues in the school or whatever, yeah, you can have a decent relationship, but not intimacy, not friendship. We don't trust
and we don't enter into friendships or reliability. Because what you do then is you will start to absorb some of their values because you will believe that you trust them and that they trust you. No, we don't have no Kappa friends, especially sisters.
Be especially careful sister because you are more delicate, you are more sacred, you are more jewel, you are more sensitive even than the brothers.
So don't think to yourself that you got no Catholic friends, because even an innocent Catholic
all small girls are small girls allowed to play with small boys.
You know, in a Muslim society generally, generally in a Muslim society, where the children
are affected by the morals of Islam and by the parents.
There's no harm in boys and girls playing until the age of seven.
But when the age of seven is awesome said even sisters and brothers, don't let them sleep together no more. It's just the same house.
So now Now we in America we and UK now
you know kids going to school with Doug's
little kids going to school, but I saw a little kid on the other day on a bus stop, but it was a cell phone.
No kids, shouldn't people know kids stealing, cursing?
No kids talking about sex. They don't even know what it is. But they talking about it. Dancing just like the people in the movies. So now think about a little young boy. That Yo Yo, yo dawg, Salima? No Fatima, she played in the back yard was a little boy the seven
some little Yachty
he cursing he felt it.
He almost a criminal already.
He talking to her like the little boys talking on the video, because he didn't memorize the video. Now imagine you'll know Fatima and his house.
Now, do you think that your father wants to be in the house with Joe? Joe? Joe?
I don't think so.
No, I say I would advise not I would advise us to keep our young girls.
Keep our young girls at home and keep them where you can see them.
And let them with low capital come around. Let them run away. Let them run back inside the house and run away.
T steals young girls early that when the capitals come around, they will run away because if they don't run away when they're young.
They ain't gonna run away when they Oh
