I want to

00:00:01--> 00:00:04

ride on the last panel or Donna.

00:00:06--> 00:00:09

Yeah, you heard Edina amorosa la

00:00:11--> 00:00:16

la colo colon Sadie Daniel, Amanda como una de novo con

00:00:18--> 00:00:22

la Sulu. Sokka further falls on avina.

00:00:31--> 00:00:34

Brothers and sisters, we praise Allah subhana wa tada

00:00:36--> 00:01:11

we ask every kind of help from them. We realize that whosoever law guides no one can lead them astray. Whosoever lost power leads to stray. There is no one who can benefit them or guide them after that. We bear witness that there is none to be worship except Allah subhanho wa Taala that he is one without any partners and we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is obedient to slave, His Messenger and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We asked the last panel to Allah to

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

bless Mohammed

00:01:15--> 00:01:16


00:01:17--> 00:01:21

Ibrahim Alayhi Salam Rahim Allah, Allah Majeed Allah

00:01:23--> 00:01:34

exalted Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the people of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even as you have exalted Rahim Allah and the people who brought him in.

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

I remind you and I remind myself that Allah subhana wa tada he says, In the Quran,

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

Allahu Allah, eco who you

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

follow Allah, he was asleep.

00:01:53--> 00:01:58

I remind you that the prophets a lot of sense said, the most stingy of those

00:01:59--> 00:02:03

who mentioned me are those who mentioned me and they do not tend to follow up upon me.

00:02:04--> 00:02:20

So I advise all the brothers and sisters that whenever we take of the profits or loss and when we say the profit or loss or loss on the 100, some a lot of them and we mean the message of a lot, that we send citations upon him, since citations upon his family, and upon his companions, and all those people

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

who preserved the sun up until the day of judgment, me.

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

Dear brothers and sisters,

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

our discussion today is

00:02:33--> 00:02:38

to give naseeha to the Muslim youth. This is our discussion today.

00:02:41--> 00:02:47

And for the young Muslims, I don't want you to think that I'm talking at you.

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

And I'm not talking necessarily about you.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

But I'm speaking with you.

00:02:58--> 00:03:02

And I'm speaking to you, as a person that has a relationship with you.

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

I'm not talking to you as an au head,

00:03:07--> 00:03:13

as you might call your father's in some others, somebody who's out of touch, I don't know what's going on.

00:03:14--> 00:03:19

I'm talking to you about somebody who knows exactly what you do, how you feel,

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

how you think.

00:03:24--> 00:03:30

And in the course of my conversation, I want to keep it real with you, I want to make it straight and clear with you.

00:03:33--> 00:03:36

So I'm not going to quote a lot of Hades.

00:03:38--> 00:03:46

When I do, I try to make it simple show up. I won't give you a lot of is of course, because you can't handle it.

00:03:47--> 00:03:52

But I'm going to try to talk common sense to you got to talk to you as your older brother.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

Because the life that you live in is a reality.

00:04:02--> 00:04:04

And where you're headed is a reality.

00:04:07--> 00:04:12

As a matter of the choices that you make, where you're going to wind up that this is what we want to talk about

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

your life

00:04:17--> 00:04:37

which is a reality and where you're headed, which is also a reality. And what are you gonna wind up at, which is also a reality. All of it involves choices and challenges. So that's the nature of our talk today. challenges and choices facing the Muslim youth.

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

The first challenge of choice that you have to make is to be Muslim.

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

Now No, you born Muslim. That's not what I mean.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Not that your name is a Muslim, not that

00:05:00--> 00:05:05

You live in a Muslim house? Not you have a Muslim family, but what's in your heart?

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

Not what's on your tongue, not the languages speak what's in your heart?

00:05:12--> 00:05:16

How you act, when you run them Cafritz? How do you act?

00:05:18--> 00:05:25

When you hit those streets? How do you act? How do you think? How do you feel? That's what you really are.

00:05:27--> 00:05:35

What you are when you're by yourself, how you think, how you feel and how you act. That's who you really are.

00:05:40--> 00:05:45

Now, the choice you have to make is your choice. And we're going to talk about the choices.

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

As we got to the Islamic faith,

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

it's either a matter of faith,

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

or immorality or disobedience.

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

No gray area.

00:05:59--> 00:06:03

There's just like a woman is not almost pregnant, either she pregnant or she's not.

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

Water is not almost wet is either either you wet, or you're not.

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

Either you Muslim, or you're not.

00:06:14--> 00:06:24

Again, we're not talking about the tone, or the name, or your family. We're talking about how you feel, how you think, and how you act.

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

When we talk about faith, we mean faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is having a bond with a law, a bond with a loss of $1 when you hear the call and

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

how does it how do you respond to the court and

00:06:45--> 00:06:53

when you hear that jungle music, I know how you feel. I know how you respond to it. That jungle music you know what I'm talking about?

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

The music for the apes and monkeys and the dogs and animals.

00:06:59--> 00:07:17

That jungle music, how it makes you feel hot, make your act, how it makes you think how it makes you how you respond to that. My question is for you. Don't Ask Don't answer the question. Answer yourself. When you hear the voice when you hear the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

in English or out of it, how it makes you feel

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

how does it make you respond?

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

How does it make you sing

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

when the time for the Salah comes

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

and you hear the bond or you know the Adonis call or you know the time for the salon Is that

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

how you act?

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

How you think how you feel

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

when you think about the profit so a lot of a seller,

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

say some Hollywood seller.

00:07:55--> 00:08:05

When you think about the profits on a lot of a salon, his name is mentioned or Heidi, or you know Asana or you know what he told you to do, how you say

00:08:06--> 00:08:08

how you feel how you act

00:08:11--> 00:08:15

this is a this is a choice and the challenge that you have to make.

00:08:17--> 00:08:31

Because every day a loss of Palawan taala every day that the sun rises, and that you are alive. A lot of giving you the choice and putting that challenge in front of you to choose the trash or the treasure.

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

And nothing else in between the trash.

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

Or the treasure. You know what the trash is? It's all around.

00:08:41--> 00:08:55

It's free. All you got to do is plug in the street is that you have to pay for it. You hang with it. You see it you feel it? It's not the trash is there. What about the treasure how you feel? How you think how you act?

00:08:58--> 00:09:01

The next challenge is the challenge of Islamic knowledge.

00:09:03--> 00:09:18

I know you're born Muslim, your father's Muslim you probably do at least know the fact that most young Muslims don't want to fight Yeah, even if you don't pray. Even if you start forgot the rest of the court and you don't have Satya you know the Salah.

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

What what kind of knowledge do you have about Islam?

00:09:24--> 00:09:31

What kind of knowledge do you have? If someone asked you a non Muslim? One of your homeboys that you go to school with?

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

capitals that you call home boss

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

when they asked you Mohammed Ahmed

00:09:39--> 00:09:40


00:09:41--> 00:09:42

Abdur Rahim.

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

What is what is this lamp?

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

What do you tell them? What can you tell them if you don't have any knowledge?

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

And do you know?

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

Thomas correct.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Can you explain

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

a verse?

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

A surah?

00:10:07--> 00:10:10

How much? Can you recite one Heidi?

00:10:11--> 00:10:16

correctly? authentically from the Prophet sallallahu? wasallam?

00:10:19--> 00:10:23

Do you know the five pillars of Islam? Can you explain them to somebody?

00:10:24--> 00:10:33

Do you know what our relationship is to Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Who is a law? Where is the last panel of Allah? What is our relationship to our last panel data? That's your job as a Muslim?

00:10:35--> 00:10:39

That's your job as a Muslim. Somebody as you address you know, it.

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

Somebody asked Who's your father? You know?

00:10:47--> 00:10:51

Somebody asked you, who's a top football players, you know?

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

What's the top 10 songs? You know?

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

All the things about the dunya. You know, you can call it straight up

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

and compete with each other about knowing

00:11:08--> 00:11:15

what do you know about Islam? And what do you know about the end? What do you know about the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam?

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

This is the treasure

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

this issue of your identity, who are you?

00:11:24--> 00:11:26

Who are you really?

00:11:28--> 00:11:31

Are you Abdul Wali? Or are you willing?

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

Now there's a difference now

00:11:38--> 00:11:38


00:11:40--> 00:11:43

is after Wally who acts like a capital

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

that's willing.

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

Oh, Ricky

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

Abadi. Abdullah,

00:11:57--> 00:12:01

who acts like a Catholic, but he's a Muslim. That's Bob after roe.

00:12:07--> 00:12:12

When you with those cameras in the street, and they pass that split to you. Who are you?

00:12:14--> 00:12:17

Oh, you don't know what the splits is? What do you call it here?

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

A giant

00:12:21--> 00:12:21


00:12:23--> 00:12:27

When I pass that stick to you, or that glass pipe to you,

00:12:28--> 00:12:34

or that bottle to you, when they pass it, what they call you? What do you call yourself?

00:12:37--> 00:12:41

When you walk around the streets out there, how you dress, how you dress in life?

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

When you put your clothes on, are you dressing as a Muslim?

00:12:49--> 00:13:06

are you dressing basically, so that when you hit that jungle out there, you can blend in with the trash that's out there? Because that's what everybody has to do with if you walk into the jungle, most people want to blend in with the jungle. The jungle where you know the jungle where monkey suits, donkey suits.

00:13:08--> 00:13:09

gorilla suit,

00:13:10--> 00:13:21

animal suits. Why because you don't want to be blending in with the other animals who's acting like animals and then somebody's gonna ask you abdulah what you're doing drinkin

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

abdulah you get high

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

abdulah Why are you in this party?

00:13:28--> 00:13:33

So in order not to be known as a Muslim, but you have to do you got to disguise yourself.

00:13:35--> 00:13:48

And once you disguise yourself, you lose yourself. Allah subhanho wa Taala said to us in the Quran, he said out of alignment a*aka regime. Yeah, otaku la Waltons or NASA mapa de

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

la, la, la la la,

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

la la, la la Latina su la

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

la chica

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

listen to what a loss upon with Allah said young Muslims Listen Listen well.

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

He said Oh, you will believe

00:14:10--> 00:14:19

Oh, you will see a loss of Panama's Allah. Oh you will believe Be mindful of a law. Think of a law, a law and look

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

about what you send forward for yourself on tomorrow.

00:14:28--> 00:14:34

Early Allah subhanho wa Taala can see and knows very well. Exactly what you do.

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

And do not be like those who forgot about Allah. So he caused them to forget about themselves. Some kind of law. How you forget how other people forget about loss of Panama Darla, he didn't forget their name. They didn't forget the name of Allah. You all know Allah. You know some of the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala it means you forgot the orders of Allah. You forgot

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

the commandment of Allah, you forgot your duties to Allah. So when you forgot your duty to a lot the commandments of Allah, the orders of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah cause you to forget yourself.

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

Forgetting yourself means you lost your identity.

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

You lost your way

00:15:24--> 00:15:31

you lost your heritage, your legacy, you lost yourself.

00:15:34--> 00:15:44

He says, and do not be like those who forgot about a law so that Allah then cause them to forget about themselves. And so they became what

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

what is recipe

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

test it means the disobedient, the rebellious,

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

the criminals, they became disobedient.

00:15:58--> 00:16:08

They became rebellious. And as a result of that, they ended criminal conduct, criminal demeanor, criminal posture, criminal reputation.

00:16:10--> 00:16:14

It comes through association is the prophets a lot of Assam said.

00:16:15--> 00:16:15

He said

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

you will know a man

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

by his friend

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

and you will be raised up with your friend.

00:16:28--> 00:16:40

So if your homeboy the people that you hang with all day long on the corners, in the hallways, in their house, to your house, in the backyard, riding around the cars in the streets,

00:16:41--> 00:16:52

if those are the people that you hang with every day, those are your friends. That's your life. You think I feel like they do.

00:16:53--> 00:16:58

And you will be raised on the Day of Judgment. Wisdom, those will be the ones you will be raised with.

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

On the other hand,

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

what are your role models for your role models Puff Daddy

00:17:10--> 00:17:11


00:17:13--> 00:17:14

biggest mall

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

to pop.

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

The last two is dead dead.

00:17:22--> 00:17:25

Double dead man dead we're dead for a diet not a dead again.

00:17:27--> 00:17:33

W two I just mentioned they are alive that as you can see them and hear them but they brain dead.

00:17:34--> 00:17:40

Those are role models. That's what you want to dress like that's who you want to be like, Puff Daddy.

00:17:44--> 00:17:45


00:17:46--> 00:17:47

eight ball.

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

So you want to just like

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

that's what you want to listen to.

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

I'm begging you to the hellfire.

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

I'm begging you to destruction and disgrace.

00:18:04--> 00:18:14

They calling you away from your dean, calling you out of your name, calling you out of your identity, calling you to fornication, calling you to adultery, calling you to fill

00:18:15--> 00:18:20

calling you away from your legacy and your identity as a Muslim.

00:18:24--> 00:18:30

Brothers and sisters, young brothers and sisters, what I want to talk to you about today, I want to take you from zero to hero.

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

That's what we want to be Muslims. We want to be heroes. We don't want to be a zero.

00:18:36--> 00:18:46

A zero means worth nothing. No, nothing will be nothing and got nothing coming on the Day of Judgment but rest zero.

00:18:47--> 00:18:48


00:18:50--> 00:18:53

Allah subhanaw taala told us who the hero is. For the

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

sixth successful will be

00:18:57--> 00:19:08

the believers, workers. They are heroes, they heroes to themselves and also to their families. On a day of judgment, Allah raised them as heroes, martyrs, scholars,

00:19:09--> 00:19:11

people whom Allah loves.

00:19:12--> 00:19:22

And that's what we want to talk about. And anybody, anybody can start out as a zero and one and up as a hero. If you see a loss of Parliament's Allah and he made the right choices,

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

even a stumbling bumbling fumbling man

00:19:32--> 00:19:47

turn into a hero because stumbling blocks can be turned into stepping stones. The same thing you stumble over, you can turn it into a stepping stone. It's a matter of choice. As a matter of meeting the challenge

00:19:48--> 00:19:51

is about making the correct decision.

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

We're talking again about leaving the trash

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

holding on to the treasure

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

You young Muslims, you were born with the treasure in your mouth. You were born with the treasure and your heart. You were born with the treasure in your mind. What's the treasure? The treasure is law in the law, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

what the treasure?

00:20:21--> 00:20:21

The treasure?

00:20:24--> 00:20:28

Muhammad Rasulullah the message ever lost a lot of us I'm saying

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

mama don't assume a lot. The whole agenda

00:20:40--> 00:20:47

What do you mean by that? Not just by the statement night I got a lot, but by the feeling in the heart

00:20:49--> 00:20:54

thinking about Allah subhanaw taala and saying to yourself, La Ilaha Illa la

00:20:56--> 00:21:12

thinking about Mahatma so a lot of us insane. Muhammad Rasul Allah, a lot of us and them and feeling it in the heart and wanting to be a Muslim, and being grateful for being a Muslim and preserving the right to be a Muslim. The person who has that feeling Allah will protect them.

00:21:14--> 00:21:22

I love and forgive them. And the law will also give them His mercy and the loss of political end to allow them to enter his gender.

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

They're young Muslims.

00:21:29--> 00:21:33

What's the alternative to faith and knowledge and I correct identity?

00:21:34--> 00:21:37

what's the what's the alternative?

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

I'll tell you what the alternatives are.

00:21:47--> 00:21:53

The alternative of responding to Allah subhanho wa Taala is responding to a shaytaan

00:21:55--> 00:22:11

g the dunya itself has his own dour. The dunya the world, your own voice. Allah subhanaw taala is calling us a lost hundreds Allah said to you and me. Oh you believe is the G Boo.

00:22:12--> 00:22:12


00:22:14--> 00:22:16

illallah wa salam o you believe

00:22:18--> 00:22:28

respond to Allah and His messenger. So a lot of him when he calls you to that which gives you life? What kind of lights dignity,

00:22:29--> 00:22:37

decency, honesty, power, responsibility respect. That's like

00:22:42--> 00:22:42

he said,

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

Yeah, then the Adam

00:22:52--> 00:22:53


00:22:54--> 00:22:55

has been awesome stuffing.

00:22:57--> 00:23:37

Allah subhanaw taala says, oh, Benny Adam, did I not warn you not to worship Satan, than he is to you? I do want Obi Wan bodoni but only worship me. How does Serato stuck in that this is the correct way? What does it mean to worship Satan? Does it mean to go to a building that says the message of shaitaan? No. Does it mean to have us idle a statue that says shut off? No. Does it mean to bow down to shake on? No. It means responding to the voice and the call of shaytaan.

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

Let's talk about the voice in the call of shift on

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

the first voice of shaytan is the music

00:23:48--> 00:24:02

now let's not get into what is there some music that's halab does not get into whether you can listen to a good beats is called Nasheed and some other foolishness. Let's not talk about that. Let's talk about music itself.

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:24:08--> 00:24:17

never listened to it did not allow his companions to listen to it told us that we should not listen to it that it leads us to

00:24:19--> 00:24:29

foolishness, lewdness, rebellion, and morality. It diverts us from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:24:32--> 00:24:48

But let's talk about the kind of music we're not even talking about some classical music. We're not talking about just some drums and whistles and beats. We're not talking about that. We're talking about the stuff that you brothers looking at these brothers and sisters are looking at on TV and and videos.

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

Straight up

00:24:52--> 00:24:58

triple x music just like porno movies, no different

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

the music that

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Young people are looking at today. listener today is porno music.

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

The parents that allow them to watch it at home is given that children porno music

00:25:13--> 00:25:24

because the woman is naked, and the men is naked, and they suggested naked things and salty things and to even do it in the movies in the videos. So now

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

what is this music? This is the devil

00:25:30--> 00:25:39

when they sang in it, when they dance in it, they memorize it and wrapping it, then making the dough out to the devil. And the devil answers them.

00:25:42--> 00:25:50

What does the music lead to? The music leads you to the places where others listen to it and dance to it.

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

Because you ain't gonna be listening to music and don't go to the place where people listen to a dance to it. You know that?

00:25:57--> 00:26:02

You know you ain't gonna be you ain't gonna be hitting no beats and singing Oh beats don't know rapping you ain't gonna be random girls.

00:26:03--> 00:26:17

And the girls ain't gonna be doing a wiggling and jiggling and fly bowling and and all that other kind of dances David dawn, butterfly and all that foolishness then I can be doing all of that. No boys around. So what that leads to what the music leads to.

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

It leads you to fat Shea and Mancha.

00:26:23--> 00:26:30

The girls and boys in the dancing and the singing is doing everything but the pen going into cup.

00:26:36--> 00:26:40

Fitness lounge just in case you brothers don't know those of you who already robbed somebody.

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

Those of you who look and robbed somebody

00:26:45--> 00:26:54

Let me tell you what, it's lamb looks at that. See here. It might only mean two three years in jail. But in Islam robbery, armed robbery

00:26:55--> 00:26:57

the sentence without his death

00:26:58--> 00:27:02

that's what it is. That's what you're playing with. You're playing with death.

00:27:03--> 00:27:09

Don't think that you're trying to get 50 pounds. Don't think you're robbing somebody for some drugs, you're playing with death

00:27:13--> 00:27:16

and even if a loss of power to Allah let you escape

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

that is you only get caught

00:27:20--> 00:27:31

buddies capless and you go to one of these jails and get to three years when you meet a recipient of $1 You still don't pay for the sit the sin and the crime of robbery

00:27:35--> 00:27:42

and all of this your leads inevitably the music and the drugs and alcohol and the guns and wanting to rob and the clothes and all that what led to

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

led to fornication

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

journey trying to get married

00:27:50--> 00:27:54

you don't want to know your man not you don't want to know those girls.

00:27:56--> 00:28:04

Those girls that's doing all what they do and they don't Same thing with you. They don't know how the guys you don't want them. And they don't really want you except for for a minute.

00:28:06--> 00:28:09

So what is that? girls want boys for a minute.

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

And boys who want girls for a minute.

00:28:14--> 00:28:22

Without responsibility they call it what free free sex they call it. Free love is free disease.

00:28:24--> 00:28:25

With your belt all across you behind

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

looking like you're crazy.

00:28:57--> 00:29:11

Why? Because you're making a statement that you antisocial. You can't get no job looking like that. How you gonna go get a job. You don't get up in the morning, eight o'clock in the morning. You don't get up eight o'clock in the morning, put your belt on round you're behind and goes looking for a job.

You don't even know how to go look for a job. You're not adjustable job. You don't know how to ask for a job. You don't have to fill out an application for a job. That means what you dysfunctional. You get responsible. You can pay no bills. You're 25 years old living with your mom eating weed eating cornflakes.

00:29:32--> 00:29:33

drinking hot milk.

00:29:34--> 00:29:39

sneaking in but the back door at night because you've been out all night long where you don't pay rent.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

But you call yourself a gangster. I know you ain't no bombs.

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

gangster as you go, I'm a gangster.

00:30:04--> 00:30:04

I'm a player.

00:30:06--> 00:30:23

That's another name for a derelict or gangster. A player is another name for a derelict. D er e li, c, t deli. That means a person who is shiftless, worthless, irresponsible, and untrustworthy.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

Y'all call it players and gangsters.

00:30:31--> 00:30:47

Now brothers and sisters, listen. Oh, let's see, I'm just trying to tell you that it leads to it all stems from and leads to disobedience. Just obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to disobedient to Allah subhanaw taala you will be obedient to your parents. The prophets, a lot of Assam said

00:30:50--> 00:30:53

the crime, which is second to

00:30:54--> 00:30:57

associated partners with a loss of power to Allah is what?

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

disobedience to the parents.

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

And then it's the message of a loss of loss. And he said yes to a lot. So a lot of sin.

00:31:08--> 00:31:15

What did the Prophet Lawson say which action is the best, the most excellent, he said, a solid to Alan Watts, as number one

00:31:16--> 00:31:19

prayer in it proper time. What's the next one? He said,

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

respect for your two parents. And after that, he said, What and

00:31:27--> 00:31:33

then after that, what next? He said he had Disability Law. So we can just cancel out you have to submit that you're gonna do that.

00:31:35--> 00:31:41

You're making no prayer. So you definitely gonna disobey your parents. So when your parents say, Get up makes a lot.

00:31:42--> 00:31:47

You can't make no salad you've been smoking all night, you might not get up to 12 o'clock at three o'clock in the afternoon.

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

If you want to make the lottery we'll get up.

00:31:54--> 00:32:00

So all of this year leads to what? Shame and disobedience to the family.

00:32:01--> 00:32:23

you disobey your mother, you disobey your father, you disobey the elders inside the masjid. And you don't even want to come inside the mosque because we come inside the masjid. Somebody's telling you where to sit. somebody's trying to tell you to pull up your clothes. somebody's trying to take my tell you been put on you don't want to do that. So you just you don't we look at the mosque and you go around all women that way, so you can get any past about Masjid.

00:32:27--> 00:32:45

This is what shaytan does. Sit on make you ashamed of yourself. Make your family ashamed of you. Make you ashamed of being a Muslim, and the capitals that you hang with. You think that because you don't act like a Muslim. And because you don't, that you don't think like a Muslim. You don't talk like a Muslim. You think they respect you?

00:32:46--> 00:32:46


00:32:48--> 00:32:50

they don't respect you. They disrespect you even more.

00:32:52--> 00:32:57

You know what I'm talking about brothers, the harder you try to be like them, they remind you, you're not like them.

00:33:00--> 00:33:01

Now you Muslim,

00:33:02--> 00:33:10

but you're a hypocrite. They'll even remind you every now and then when I get angry with you say you didn't even know real Muslim. I mean, what are you

00:33:12--> 00:33:12

a Muslim?

00:33:14--> 00:33:18

Muslim pray I know what a mosque is. I just go around the mosque and tell them what you'd be doing.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

That's what they do when they get angry with you.

00:33:24--> 00:33:32

All this leads you to disobedience, disregard for the word of the last Parliament Allah and inevitably it lead and you can land in four different places.

00:33:34--> 00:33:36

First, it's gonna land you in prison.

00:33:39--> 00:33:46

If you keep headed the way you are, I'm not saying all of you. Because probably most of the young brothers and sisters is good brothers and sisters, but a few of y'all in here.

00:33:47--> 00:33:59

Still yards in here. Humble army law bless you for coming up in here. And this might turn you around by spinning around this little device here might help you out. A couple yards in here. Y'all know that y'all right on the edge.

00:34:00--> 00:34:06

yesterday or the day before yesterday, or last week did something you know, are you thinking about something tonight or tomorrow?

00:34:08--> 00:34:25

But maybe, maybe, maybe you will think about it tonight and you will make Toba. You come back to a lot come back to yourself. Come back to your parents. Come back to the masjid come back to your identity. Come back to Islam because if you don't, I'm going to tell you where you're headed that

00:34:27--> 00:34:50

for the sisters, for the sisters who are disobedient sisters, who took up the clothes sisters who left Islam and the sisters are left this a lot and don't want to pray don't want to act like a Muslim. You had it for nothing but disgrace. You're going to be living in the garbage can from now on. Because everybody that Nietzsche is going to teach you just like another English. Y'all know they call

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

y'all know they call it your dignity sisters, your dignity is in your hijab your identity

00:35:00--> 00:35:13

See, your dignity is your family. your dignity is Islam. your dignity is your worship your belief, your fear, the loss of animal dollar. That's your dignity. When you leave your dignity, you're naked.

00:35:15--> 00:35:19

You can put a low bar on top of your head, or act like you halfway Muslim.

00:35:21--> 00:35:25

You put a little scarf on with the little tight jeans on like you covered up something.

00:35:27--> 00:35:32

You got some little clubs and be ducking all down and everything but nobody know what the deal is.

00:35:34--> 00:35:35

You're gonna be Muslim.

00:35:36--> 00:35:38

Are you gonna be one of them female animals.

00:35:40--> 00:35:47

And once them young boys, whether they Muslims or otherwise, find out that you got no fear of a loss upon with either

00:35:49--> 00:35:50

one of them young gophers

00:35:51--> 00:36:01

find out that you don't have no concern about your family. no concern about this Dean. They don't care nothing about that little scarf you've got on your head that's coming off.

00:36:03--> 00:36:09

Them cannot but your name being Fatima Salima or whatever it is, they don't care nothing about that.

00:36:11--> 00:36:11

You know,

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

you know exactly what I'm saying.

00:36:15--> 00:36:19

It might already have happened yet the goods might already be damaged.

00:36:22--> 00:36:51

But it's the real world you live in on here. There's no placing systems, you go out here without your hijab on, you go out there hanging out with these Catholics, these Catholic girls hanging out in these places. You want to do a little shake a little dance. You want to get the lights in here, low tune whatever it is. They can get you after that you feel disgraced. You feel the 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?

00:36:52--> 00:36:54

Now you got to go to one of them clinics.

00:36:57--> 00:37:00

You can't tell your family about it. So what you got to do now?

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

Go on and clinics get an abortion.

00:37:05--> 00:37:16

You got to kill a baby. Now you got murder on your hands. You don't kill somebody. First you went out to space yourself. Now you got to kill somebody. or kill a baby that is

00:37:17--> 00:37:21

if you don't kill the baby. Now what you do you bring the baby home? What is it?

00:37:22--> 00:37:23

It's a bastard.

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

Hello, little sweet little bastard.

00:37:31--> 00:37:43

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?

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

Now, sure, your mother and your father.

00:37:47--> 00:37:55

They can get attached to little baby. They can feed the baby and raise the baby up for you and all that, but you don't brought shame.

00:37:57--> 00:38:09

And this is what's happening to our young girls. And this has happened 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.

00:38:11--> 00:38:27

See all this comes about from disobedience to a loss of power to Allah and see the young brothers young sisters, they're not going to prison most of them because they're not gonna go No, they don't rob nobody, the sisters, the sisters is gonna wind up in a prison of disgrace.

00:38:28--> 00:38:29

Live in what a Kappa

00:38:31--> 00:38:39

raised in a low Beta Kappa. Live in like a cafe. So they live in in a prison of disgrace. But the young brothers

00:38:40--> 00:38:43

who want to sell drugs want to rob people.

00:38:44--> 00:39:00

You can wind up brother in a prison of disgrace or you wind up in prison and a prison enough where you can wind up in the hospital. Now vain 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.

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

Now this is the choice that we have.

00:39:04--> 00:39:08

The choice that you have going Muslims is to be young Muslims.

00:39:09--> 00:39:12

Now let's talk about what it means to meet this challenge.

00:39:13--> 00:39:20

Let me read you one little shot. A little shot one, not one, I will read no long one. Not because I want to buy leads.

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

I want to buy to get no attitude now. Because

00:39:25--> 00:39:28

I'm talking to me, I'm not talking to you. I'm talking to college.

00:39:29--> 00:39:45

Don't get no attitude because we just talked in here. We just kicking it live. That's all we're doing. We're just keeping it real. We're just giving it back and forth. So we can see what the pitches look like. So we can decide if we want to do it. We can make a choice to either meet the challenge

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

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, and nobody will point no fingers. And nobody Don't blame nobody calling you by no names.

00:40:01--> 00:40:13

If caliente in the street all I'm gonna see isn't it as a young Muslim, how you feel solid what's going on at you, I hamdulillah Masha Allah is a man that neatness that day.

00:40:14--> 00:40:15

Now I'm not gonna do that

00:40:16--> 00:40:24

because the choices you can make yourself especially those of you that's 13 years old and older. Now for those as younger, don't worry about it.

00:40:25--> 00:40:35

Don't worry about your father's your older brothers they can guide you the right way to elders and market and guide you the right way. You just listened good but I'm saying use it younger than 13. But those are 13 and older.

00:40:37--> 00:40:45

You better think real carefully about what I'm telling you the night or this afternoon. curfew don't listen to this. You know listen to nothing.

00:40:46--> 00:40:54

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'm not gonna say here.

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

Since I got 11 children

00:41:02--> 00:41:07

I grew up in Brooklyn. Bed Stuy. Do y'all know Bed Stuy?

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

00:41:22--> 00:41:25

gangsters. I need to take y'all back to Brooklyn.

00:41:28--> 00:41:31

So I'm telling you, I'm telling you brothers for real?

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

Y'all got it sweet.

00:41:35--> 00:41:36

00:41:53--> 00:41:57

Brothers and sisters. And it is gators law small ID from the process allows

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

Also known as Abdullah.

00:42:38--> 00:42:43

calmly, kill Islam colon as an IRA.

00:42:44--> 00:42:45

00:43:09--> 00:43:10

Just the main thing.

00:43:11--> 00:43:17

Be prepared to say to whoever that you meet. I'm a Muslim. I'm a Muslim. And I don't do that.

00:43:19--> 00:43:20

00:43:21--> 00:43:24

I'm a decent Muslim. I feel lots of fun with Allah. I'm looking down the road at my future. I got respect to my family. I got respect for myself.

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

You see a Kappa talking to a sister he is supposed to be or sister talking to a Kappa. You're supposed to talk to them.

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

telecom for a step off.

00:43:59--> 00:44:13

He'd be better off if he step off. Tell him that. That's my sister. Don't have to be your blood sister. As a Muslim sister to tell icap you'd be better off if you step off. And tell the Sister Sister you got no fear of Allah.

00:44:15--> 00:44:25

You getting respect for your family, you get the respect for yourself. Fear 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.

00:44:28--> 00:44:35

Say I believe in Allah. That means be straightforward Muslim. Don't hide Islam.

00:44:36--> 00:44:40

Don't be no side with Muslim. Don't be non Muslim and secret.

00:44:42--> 00:44:51

Be straight up Muslim. Anybody asked you tell them your name. Tell them your religion. Tell them about the religion, invite them to it.

00:44:52--> 00:44:58

After that have good conduct. The purpose the last name said I had been slipped was what? To protect good manners.

00:45:01--> 00:45:03

Present Perfect, good manners.

00:45:06--> 00:45:07

prophets, a lot of them said

00:45:09--> 00:45:12

in another very short one.

00:45:16--> 00:45:23

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

00:45:25--> 00:45:37

everyone to make the right choices, how do we do it? And we want to change our life. How do we do it? We want to be a good Muslim, how do we do it? And we want to earn the mercy of Allah, how do we do it? We want the forgiveness of Allah, how do we do it?

00:45:38--> 00:45:40

We want respect. How do we do it?

00:45:41--> 00:45:50

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 Protestant a lot of them said,

00:45:52--> 00:45:53

Shut up

00:45:55--> 00:45:56

to be

00:46:00--> 00:46:06

all the children of Adam make mistakes. And the best of those that make mistakes and those who do what?

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

They make Toba they come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:46:11--> 00:46:13

The prophet SAW a lot of them say

00:46:19--> 00:46:20

hi to mark on to

00:46:22--> 00:46:23

what they say. Yeah, we'll

00:46:27--> 00:46:30

call it the NES. The whole open person.

00:46:32--> 00:46:34

He said something a lot of us.

00:46:36--> 00:46:38

Be mindful of a law wherever you are.

00:46:39--> 00:46:55

That means under all circumstances, in the school, on the job in the street, in the masjid at home, when you by yourself, do law, be mindful of a lot. But if you make a mistake, he said What? What's so yeah, that hasn't

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

follow up a bad deal with a good one.

00:47:00--> 00:47:06

That will cancel that bad deed out the good deed will tend to cancel out the good one, the bad one. Now he's not talking about tobacco.

00:47:07--> 00:47:13

Because a good deal is not gonna cancel out. It is a big a major sin. A major sin is only wiped out by what?

00:47:14--> 00:47:16

Toba? You got to come back to a law.

00:47:18--> 00:47:32

You got to cry to a law. Gotta make sure like I asked 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.

00:47:33--> 00:47:36

You can make Toba today and get up tomorrow smoking a spliff.

00:47:38--> 00:47:51

Take another bottle of wine, lay down with another girl Rob somebody else tomorrow. Nick Taub again, you can't do that. law doesn't accept that he only accepts it when it has its loss. sincerity.

00:47:53--> 00:48:04

So what do we do first, make Toba come back to Allah young Muslims come back to Allah, all the Muslims. Because hear everything I'm saying here.

00:48:05--> 00:48:15

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.

00:48:17--> 00:48:24

There's some older people that's in here. They've been here. They've been in the UK for 20 years. And the young boy saw them on the corners.

00:48:25--> 00:48:45

The young boy saw them out there, the young boy see, they got stores, they sell them, what are they doing wrong? They saw them as they were going upset. Well, if my uncle didn't, I can do it. And my father did it, I can do it. So many of the young people that's here is in the condition they in because the older people did it before they did it.

00:48:46--> 00:48:49

So I don't want to be like I'm beating up on the young folks, because I'm not.

00:48:50--> 00:48:53

I'm just in a what we call this is called I just called a ricochet.

00:48:55--> 00:48:59

ricochet, you know, that means it just bounce off and come back to you.

00:49:00--> 00:49:11

So that many of us Oh hits 50 years old 4540 3530 we doing still doing some of the stuff I'm talking to about the young people still doing?

00:49:13--> 00:49:16

But see, that's the old criminal and that's the old food

00:49:17--> 00:49:22

and profits lost them said the worst of fornicators incentives is the old one.

00:49:24--> 00:49:27

Allah subhanaw taala hate our old fornicator more than he do a young one.

00:49:29--> 00:49:35

Because the old fornicator he got no real reason to be falling kicked no more. He just fornicating goes to heaven.

00:49:36--> 00:49:41

He got the fire no more he got the he got he gotta find a way to do that.

00:49:43--> 00:49:46

That may he been doing it for a long time.

00:49:48--> 00:50:00

So young people understand that many of you fell into this situation or you were let into the situation or you were allowed into the situation.

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

So yes as something wrong to that your mother's and your father's they allowed you

00:50:08--> 00:50:12

or you were led into it by older brother, older sister or uncle.

00:50:15--> 00:50:38

But nevertheless, you're responsible. And I'm telling you you got to make tell by the way you want to correct yourself. Go home and take a bath tonight. Because you're gonna die tomorrow, one of these tomorrow's you're thinking that you're gonna wake up, you're gonna die. Or one of these things that you're doing is wrong. Somebody can put a bullet in your head or knife in your back. You're gonna be stressed out. You ain't got no choice, then

00:50:39--> 00:50:41

you're going right where you used to hang

00:50:43--> 00:50:45

and see good company.

00:50:46--> 00:50:59

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, just like having dirty clothes on and taking a bath and putting on the same dirty stinking clothes.

00:51:00--> 00:51:01

No makes sense.

00:51:03--> 00:51:09

You're warm clothes for a week. Now you decide to take a bath and you go clean that they put on the same clothes.

00:51:10--> 00:51:12

Some clothes almost standing up without a hanger.

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

Don't make sense.

00:51:18--> 00:51:24

Make Toba and then after that seek good company. Find a young Muslim that's trained.

00:51:26--> 00:51:36

Funny on Muslims, East Alicia talking right? A young Muslim that Tila talking about a lot talking about the prophets. A lot of us now find a young Muslim like that to be with

00:51:41--> 00:51:41

the school.

00:51:43--> 00:51:47

Look for a young Muslim, a decent young Muslim to hang with. Don't look for

00:51:50--> 00:52:00

you seen on fool's avoidance. Find a young Muslim that believe in a law a decent young Muslim, a pious young Muslim or non Muslim

00:52:02--> 00:52:03

a sensible young Muslim

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

Needham capitals alone all together.

00:52:09--> 00:52:13

I hang out with a fortress Muslim flying over the castle. A fullest Muslim.

00:52:14--> 00:52:23

A fullest Muslim and Lizzy Muslim, a Kappa he can lead you to the mosque he don't say Mashallah hummed a lot of stuff a lot. Nothing.

00:52:25--> 00:52:31

Food is Muslim every now and then he goes on to say like, go to LA he can say Colorado something

00:52:33--> 00:52:37

but a capital he leads you to nothing but the trash.

00:52:40--> 00:52:42

Next thing is make up your mind.

00:52:44--> 00:52:49

Make a demand do something with your life. If you're in school, stay in school and be the best

00:52:51--> 00:52:55

if you're in school, stay in school and be the best

00:52:57--> 00:53:00

if you fail in school, you will fail the rest of your life I'm telling you right now

00:53:02--> 00:53:12

if you fail in school and that's all right. You can fail the rest of your life you can get no job nobody first of all they got college degrees can't get no job there's right and wrong

00:53:13--> 00:53:19

that's even here right now he's got a college degree they can't get a job so now you know if you've dropped out of grad school you

00:53:21--> 00:53:23

got out of high school you over

00:53:24--> 00:53:29

you're gonna get nothing you got nothing coming to you go you've not so did you go live in council housing. You will be on welfare the rest of your life

00:53:31--> 00:53:33

in school Excel.

00:53:36--> 00:53:44

Except no DS and C's or 60s and 70s of Muslim in school. What is Tablas is probably the toughest class

00:53:46--> 00:53:51

the chap was supposed to be asking the Muslim listen you got that homework? Can you help me out with the test

00:53:53--> 00:54:00

that's what that's capitals as the Muslim that good Muslim folks be the best. Whatever he's doing the Muslim is the best.

00:54:02--> 00:54:05

Come back to your deen come back to the masjid

00:54:06--> 00:54:09

come back to the deen come back to the masjid

00:54:13--> 00:54:33

that's what you got to do. Come back to this Dean. This Dean is what 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 can come when you die.

00:54:36--> 00:54:38

You can come back here anyway now.

00:54:39--> 00:54:49

You're gonna come back here while you live in or you're 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 makes a lot.

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

No matter what you're doing. Coming to match it. Make you will do makes a lot you got to go make it make a whistle. Go on make a bustle come to the match. It makes a lot

00:55:00--> 00:55:08

Because if you keep coming to the master making slot, what's gonna happen is the last opponent is gonna give you enough ammunition to stop doing them since you're doing

00:55:09--> 00:55:20

but if you say to yourself well since I'm committing sins I know since coming to the masjid you're done then don't let no Muslim tell you man since you are doing wrong, and I don't know why you come into the masa.

00:55:21--> 00:55:25

You know most of my tell you that I can look I know what you'd be doing, man what you're doing in the masjid.

00:55:27--> 00:55:29

Does Ahmed masyadong same thing you don't

00:55:30--> 00:55:40

ask the Lord for forgiveness. Ask the Lord for guidance as to not accept my prayer as not to make me strong so I can stop doing some of the stuff I'm doing little by little day by day.

00:55:42--> 00:55:48

Because they know you brothers and sisters, that's strong, but you're gonna stop doing all the stuff you're doing overnight. I did.

00:55:50--> 00:55:53

I took Shahada in 1964 brother, he told you that.

00:55:55--> 00:56:03

But the first time I prayed five times a day, I didn't care about no five times a day. I didn't know that. I didn't know the Muslim was really doing that till about 1968.

00:56:06--> 00:56:07

But no days there were no message.

00:56:09--> 00:56:11

No, no messages like this.

00:56:13--> 00:56:21

I heard that the Muslim folk pray five times a day when I took Shahada. I think nobody was really praying five times a day. I thought it was like making dua five times a day.

00:56:22--> 00:56:35

But 1968 I came and saw some brothers praying five times. I said, Do you brothers get together like this? Every day? It looks at me like I was crazy. So are you been Muslim? I said about five years.

00:56:36--> 00:56:41

They get together like this every day. I can't we pray five times. I said for real.

00:56:44--> 00:56:59

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 was doing? I'm not gonna make no confessions.

00:57:01--> 00:57:07

But to know about all the stuff I'm talking about that and stop doing it, by the way, so you know, I know.

00:57:09--> 00:57:12

So Yang Ofu may not if we talk, we don't talk a little bit outside.

00:57:14--> 00:57:16

So I'm telling you not gonna stop overnight.

00:57:18--> 00:57:23

I don't think I can stop smoking weed. I've seen Amanda be Muslim man. And just you know, smoking habit.

00:57:24--> 00:57:42

Every day, every day, just smoke a little less of that, john. See, and then after that, after that, then smoke with john 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 and join sneaking

00:57:43--> 00:57:53

in, puts them out ad drops in your eyes 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.

00:57:54--> 00:57:58

And so gradually, once you've established in your heart that is wrong,

00:57:59--> 00:58:11

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 and feel like a hypocrite but I tell him to do the Muslim

00:58:12--> 00:58:19

and then gradually stopped doing what you're doing. Because if you're Muslim, you can come to the prayer. You read,

00:58:20--> 00:58:39

you can listen to the sooner the profit loss and you can be with the Muslims. even faster in the month of Ramadan when it comes. So gradually, what's gonna happen is you're gonna get the ammunition, you won't get the strength, day by day to stop doing something wrong that you're doing but being Muslim. So I'm telling you, brothers and sisters already Muslim.

00:58:40--> 00:58:49

don't flip overnight. Don't fool yourself. But start today. Come back to the deen. Give up the crime. And give up the criminals.

00:58:51--> 00:58:55

Change your image and change the role models.

00:58:56--> 00:59:01

Change your image and change your role models.

00:59:02--> 00:59:04

Correct your relationship with your parents.

00:59:07--> 00:59:36

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're the one they 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.

00:59:37--> 00:59:45

So if you don't do something good for your parents, you don't obey your parents. Something will happen to you like that, like that young boy and sort of kept. Y'all resort to catch

00:59:47--> 00:59:52

me sort of the calf and see but the young boy who disobedient, ungrateful and rebellious to a loss upon

00:59:55--> 01:00:00

this how la felt about that young man. A lot of children put them in the ground. Just like

01:00:00--> 01:00:05

That and replaced them and told his parents told toto musala

01:00:07--> 01:00:09

that his parents would be more pleased with him.

01:00:11--> 01:00:28

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 hair is up. Hi, you ain't got to be ducking.

01:00:30--> 01:00:34

You can be around this neighborhood. And you take care of neighborhood.

01:00:36--> 01:00:44

And those criminals, those animals all around the neighborhood, disrespected breaking in. When they see you they be ducking and dodging.

01:00:46--> 01:00:58

corrective relationship, understand what it means to be decent. Understand what it means to be dignified, respect those three words, decent, dignified, respect.

01:00:59--> 01:01:03

Understand what that means. Because if you don't know what it means, you will

01:01:04--> 01:01:05

you will

01:01:07--> 01:01:14

understand that you are the future of Islam, you young Muslims, you are the future all these old people and myself.

01:01:15--> 01:01:23

They bounce look at Oh, because I got that hidden my beard profit like that. So Panama. He liked the henna. The province allows them

01:01:25--> 01:01:28

but if I didn't have a hand I'd be just as white as someone else.

01:01:31--> 01:01:34

Their hand in here so young boys over push up on me.

01:01:37--> 01:01:40

Understand you young brothers and sisters, you are the future

01:01:42--> 01:02:03

20 years from now by the collarbone being here. Some of these old brothers won't be here. Some of the young brothers will be here BD moms and be the leaders. Y'all be in the front right? taking over. Take this whole neighborhood over. But all these young Muslims in this neighborhood if y'all was soldiers, y'all come back to this day. You take this whole area

01:02:05--> 01:02:06

this whole area

01:02:07--> 01:02:10

complex. I'm talking about the whole area.

01:02:11--> 01:02:14

spittle Hill, bit more pits more whatever it is.

01:02:15--> 01:02:17

Take over this whole town

01:02:19--> 01:02:25

all these young Muslims on this side of town another side of town you take the whole place over

01:02:27--> 01:02:30

cuz nobody can do it with a Muslim MP straight.

01:02:32--> 01:02:35

They get us down to us this low Beantown.

01:02:37--> 01:02:40

This is a low being town. It's a no big city.

01:02:42--> 01:02:46

But the Muslims in this city stood up

01:02:48--> 01:02:54

and did what they supposed to do and identify themselves and establish this Deen and establish this tower.

01:02:55--> 01:03:00

You young Muslims here, you could give 100 charters next week.

01:03:02--> 01:03:04

Charles every week after that,

01:03:05--> 01:03:11

after you stopped giving us your house all around here, all the young brothers that have wives, and all the young sets that have husbands

01:03:18--> 01:03:22

today would know what Islam is. Even if they didn't accept Islam, they would know what it is.

01:03:25--> 01:03:32

Correct your relationship with your parents understand what a decent dignified and respectful understand that you are the future of Islam.

01:03:34--> 01:03:41

Prepare yourself to be productive and responsible. Prepare yourself to take your place in a society.

01:03:43--> 01:03:45

Not prepare yourself to be holding up no buildings.

01:03:47--> 01:03:58

To pay yourself to be responsible. Take your place in the society. Take your place in the Muslim community become responsible B young men and young women think dignified. Be strong.

01:03:59--> 01:04:00

Be soldiers.

01:04:01--> 01:04:02

01:04:04--> 01:04:05

Remember I told you

01:04:06--> 01:04:07

my advice

01:04:10--> 01:04:12

might be a little bit harsh, to a certain extent.

01:04:13--> 01:04:15

But the best deal comes from the hottest five.

01:04:17--> 01:04:25

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.

01:04:27--> 01:04:37

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.

01:04:39--> 01:04:43

I want to see you get past those stumbling blocks and make them into stepping stones.

01:04:44--> 01:04:49

I want to see you move from and give up the trash

01:04:50--> 01:04:53

and take hold of that treasure to the last one God gave me what's the treasure

We asked the last punk on to give them faith in the Lord to give them knowledge. We ask God to make their identity strong. We ask the last call to 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. We have the last dollar that Islamic teaching Institute. He can become instrumental to bind with gnostic taqwa so we can get all these young Muslims, build them up, make them into soldiers inshallah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that we create 50,000 Muslims in the city of Sheffield the next 10 years 50,000 Yeah, what they do with us then.

01:06:21--> 01:06:32

She says whether you think that giving teenagers the freedom, access to Internet, TV, or things like it is wrong?

01:06:37--> 01:06:51

Yeah. What is this question verse straightforward out 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

01:06:52--> 01:06:56

and let them play with it. Sooner or later, they will blow their brains out.

01:06:57--> 01:07:05

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.

01:07:06--> 01:07:10

Burn the brains out is slower. So it's a slower death.

01:07:11--> 01:07:37

So if a parent allows their children to watch television without any supervision, and the parent allow their children just to go on the internet and use it without any restrictions, the net turns on come in front of a loss of data being irresponsible and for contributing to both 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.

01:07:38--> 01:07:57

Only four hours a day in the course of a year. They have seen what 73,000 acts of sachet and Mancha including fornication, adultery, murder, slander, drinking drugging, all kinds of foul actions that they saw on TV.

01:07:58--> 01:08:03

Now, so if you just want let your children do that, it's up to you. But no, you shouldn't. It's wrong.

01:08:04--> 01:08:16

The parents need to take control of OLED televisions, and the parents need to restrict the children's use of the Internet. Because the parents should know

01:08:17--> 01:08:20

that even those of us who are careful.

01:08:22--> 01:08:24

Every time I go in and check my email,

01:08:25--> 01:08:30

I got about 3040 emails and 20 of them. Y'all know what it is.

01:08:32--> 01:08:33

I can't even stop it.

01:08:35--> 01:08:39

Sometime I'm trying to delete the email, and it just pop up anyway.

01:08:41--> 01:08:49

You know what I'm talking about? You can't stop it. The porn, the pornography. You can't even stop it. You only have to ask for it.

01:08:51--> 01:08:51


01:08:54--> 01:09:03

if you are friends with someone who does not do anything like drugs, or alcohol, are not Muslims. Is it wrong to be transferred?

01:09:06--> 01:09:17

upon what Allah says, Your friends are not other than Allah, His Messenger, some wallets and believers. We all have no capital friends, no such thing as a capital friend.

01:09:19--> 01:09:22

No such thing as a capital friend. That's like a good snake.

01:09:27--> 01:09:28

That's like sweet poison.

01:09:30--> 01:09:38

I don't even exist. Oh, I didn't say you couldn't have decent relationships with non Muslims. You could have a decent relationship with business.

01:09:40--> 01:09:44

Academic going to school, neighbors, co workers.

01:09:46--> 01:09:55

You know, colleagues in the school or whatever, you can have a decent relationship, but not intimacy, not friendship. We don't trust

01:09:56--> 01:10:00

and we don't enter into friendships or reliability. Because what you

01:10:00--> 01:10:11

Do Dennis, 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 capital friends, especially sisters.

01:10:12--> 01:10:23

Be especially careful sister because you are more delicate, you are more sacred, you are more pure, you are more sensitive even than the brothers.

01:10:25--> 01:10:30

So don't think to yourself that you got no capital friends, because even innocent capital

01:10:34--> 01:10:41

says, all small girls are small girls allowed to play with small boys.

01:10:46--> 01:10:54

You know, in a Muslim society generally, generally in a Muslim society, where the children

01:10:56--> 01:11:04

are affected by the morals of Islam and by the parents. There is no harm in boys and girls playing until the age of seven.

01:11:05--> 01:11:12

But when the age of seven the prophet SAW Some say even the sisters and brothers Don't let him sleep together no more. It's just the same house.

01:11:14--> 01:11:17

So now Now we in America, we in UK,

01:11:19--> 01:11:22

UK, little kids going to school with

01:11:24--> 01:11:28

little kids going to school with a little kid on another day on a bus stop with it with a cell phone.

01:11:31--> 01:11:36

No kids, shouldn't people know kids stealing, cursing?

01:11:37--> 01:11:55

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 low young boy. That Yo yo yo dawg, Salima lo Fatima she played in the backyard with some low ballers seven.

01:11:56--> 01:11:57

Some low Yachty

01:12:00--> 01:12:03

he Kherson he felt it.

01:12:04--> 01:12:06

He almost a criminal already.

01:12:07--> 01:12:18

He talking to her like the little boys talking on the video. Cuz he doesn't memorize the video. Now imagine you'll know Fatima and his house.

01:12:19--> 01:12:24

Now do you think that you know Fatima should be in the house? Hello, Joe. Joe?

01:12:27--> 01:12:28

I don't think so.

01:12:30--> 01:12:34

No, I say I would advise not I would advise us to keep our young girls.

01:12:36--> 01:12:40

Keep our young girls at home and keep them where you can see them.

01:12:41--> 01:12:48

And let them come around. Let them run away. Let them run back inside the house and run away.

01:12:49--> 01:12:55

teach those young girls early. When the calf has come around. They will run away because if they don't run away when they're young,

01:12:56--> 01:12:58

they ain't gonna run away with a Oh
