My dear Muslim brothers and sisters in Islam

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

a lot about a quarter Allah

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

has enjoined upon the Muslims

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

the best characteristics of behavior.

00:04:47--> 00:04:56

He reminded us when he said to his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in a Corolla Hello, Kayla, Alvin

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

verse

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

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

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

you are a pawn and exalted standard

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

of behavior.

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

And he said supine who were either

00:05:19--> 00:05:33

lucky laqad can alaikum Fie Rasul Allah also has an Limon can a yellow Jew law where the Omen acid was darker Allahu cathedra.

00:05:35--> 00:05:40

So certainly, there is for you are believers

00:05:43--> 00:05:48

in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam,

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

the highest standard of human behavior for anyone

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

who hopes to meet with their Lord.

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

And they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala much and often

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

the character of the Muslim

00:06:13--> 00:06:17

is the most important quality of the Muslim.

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

Of course, internally, the Muslim must have

00:06:25--> 00:06:26

the fire of Amen.

00:06:28--> 00:06:42

He or she must have knowledge to light the fire of a man. Because without knowledge, there is only the wick, and there is only the oil, but there is no fire.

00:06:45--> 00:07:01

Everyone who bears witness, that there is nothing to be worshipped except Allah subhana wa to Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah, they have entered Islam, and they have made the Kalam attain.

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

There they have the wick, and there they have the oil.

00:07:07--> 00:07:11

But in order to light that lamp, they need knowledge.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

without the knowledge, there will be no light for them.

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

They are Muslim.

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

And they are do what every Muslim is due.

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

But neither will they give light, neither will they have light.

00:07:32--> 00:07:37

They will be forced to follow someone, anyone who has some light, some knowledge.

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

But this is the internal

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

illumination of the Muslim

00:07:47--> 00:07:52

to illuminate themselves and give illumination to others they need knowledge.

00:07:53--> 00:08:00

But there is the external quality of the Muslim which is apparent to everyone. And that is the character,

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

the character, the behavior,

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

the highest form of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rissalah

00:08:16--> 00:08:21

was his character and his impact upon human beings. How he spoke to them,

00:08:23--> 00:08:30

how he sat with them, how he walked, how he talked, how he dressed, how he ate,

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

how he looked.

00:08:35--> 00:08:44

When he laid down, how did he lay down? What he ate, how did he eat when he drank? How did he drink the proportions which he used.

00:08:46--> 00:09:03

When he was angry, how he controlled himself, when he was happy, how he controlled even his happiness, how he dealt with his neighbors, how he dealt with his children, how he dealt with his wife, how he dealt with his enemies.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

How he wore his clothing,

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

when he received a gift when he gave a gift

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

even when he fought

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

What were his etiquettes

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

these are the illuminating parts of the profits of the law and it was an EMS reseller

00:09:24--> 00:09:30

that are evident to the whole world that are documented for history if they don't understand the nature

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

of the way

00:09:34--> 00:09:49

if they do not understand the nature of the revelation, if they do not understand the nature of the authenticity of his words. If they do not understand the Tafseer of the end.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

They are the ones that go far. They document it for the whole world the character of the project

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

It's a lot of money we'll send them

00:10:03--> 00:10:04

because it was evident

00:10:06--> 00:10:17

evident as the sun in the sky. The same sun which is in the sky in Australia is the same sun which is in the sky in New York City

00:10:19--> 00:10:24

and the reaction to that sun is the same for the whole world. This is why I lost the pinata Allah said

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

we're in NACA Allah, Hulu que la vim

00:10:31--> 00:10:42

when Allah subhana wa tada says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was created, and that he is upon an exalted standard of conduct, it means that no one standard of conduct is above his.

00:10:44--> 00:10:52

When he said laqad, Canada confy Rasulullah. Hasina, it means there is certainly a law says laqad.

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

Definitely, certainly, with no doubt,

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

there is for you in the messenger of a loss of a lot of them the kind of behavior that if you imitate it, you do will be upon an exalted standard of conduct.

00:11:09--> 00:11:15

The character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim,

00:11:16--> 00:11:22

not what he or she says, not only what he or she wears,

00:11:23--> 00:11:37

not where they come from, or who their mother or father is, or grandfather, not the country they live in, or, for that matter, if they live next to the Kaaba is not important at all.

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

It is the character because the character is the actual fruit.

00:11:43--> 00:11:46

The character is the actual fruit

00:11:47--> 00:11:55

of the fruit. There's a bit of fruit, if the tree bears a bit of fruit. It doesn't matter how beautiful that tree is.

00:11:56--> 00:12:04

It is the fruit that is rejected. It doesn't matter who that Muslim is and how much knowledge they have. It is the fruit which is rejected.

00:12:06--> 00:12:09

Everyone in the world loves sweet fruit.

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

It doesn't matter to them what country it came from.

00:12:15--> 00:12:16

But the matters is that

00:12:17--> 00:12:21

it's very few is very sweet. It's very delicious.

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

The Muslim

00:12:27--> 00:12:33

needs to decorate themselves, compliment themselves, illuminate themselves

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

with good knowledge

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

to support their character.

00:12:40--> 00:12:51

They need to compliment themselves with integrity and honesty and integrity and honesty. A very clear words.

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:12:57--> 00:13:00

wakulla colon sadita

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

speaker speak words that is straightforward and truthful. Colin said EDA, clear, straight truthful to the point. And if you do that, you slay

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala will make us law.

00:13:19--> 00:13:28

He will reconciliation he will arrange he will straighten out whatever it is because you will straightforward and truthful.

00:13:34--> 00:13:39

The character of the Muslim is to be reliable and dependable.

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

Reliable, what he says he does

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

and what he says he does it efficiently.

00:13:52--> 00:13:59

What he says he does and what he does, he does it proficiently.

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

This is the reputation the character of the Muslim.

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

The Muslim must have good morals

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

and social conduct. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said I did not come as a cursor

00:14:19--> 00:14:22

swearing using foul words

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

when he's angry, using foul language.

00:14:28--> 00:14:41

And when he sees something disagreeable using foul language, cursing, complaining, criticizing, condemning, even those who deserve to be cursed or condemned,

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

the Muslim should not behave that way.

00:14:49--> 00:14:52

The Muslim should have good appearance

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

and pay attention to their hygiene

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

when the Messenger of Allah sell a lot of sense saw one man

00:15:01--> 00:15:07

With his hair all over his head, he told him, don't you know what is the comb

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

take benefit of the comb.

00:15:12--> 00:15:18

Arrange yourself. He told us on Juma take a bath,

00:15:19--> 00:15:24

put on actor for the men and wear your best clothing.

00:15:27--> 00:15:38

Because he want the Muslims that when they gather together, he wants them to smell good. He wants them to look good. He told them men grow your beards

00:15:40--> 00:15:45

and clip your mustaches. This is hygiene, clip your nails.

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

Were good decent clothing.

00:15:51--> 00:16:09

The Messenger of Allaah subtle, a lot of them wanting us to take care of how we appear. Not to just ostentatiously, not to just with access, but to be clean and to be neat and to be precise, and to be decent. So that when people looked at you, they said I'd like to be like those Muslims.

00:16:13--> 00:16:20

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu I never said that he wanted us to have understanding and sensitivity. This means

00:16:22--> 00:16:34

listen to people, when they talk, listen to them and make them feel that you are listening to every word that they say and that there is nothing more important to you than what they are saying.

00:16:36--> 00:16:41

It was reported that when people came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:16:42--> 00:16:50

to speak with him. When he turned to them, he turned his entire body to them to speak to them. And they felt as if

00:16:52--> 00:17:07

he was not concerned about anyone else there except them. That's how he gives them his attention. And he always spoke very nice to them, giving them a very bright smile and asking them how are you? How do you feel whether Muslim or non Muslim?

00:17:09--> 00:17:35

He was not a man frowning at the people scowling at the people saying bad things to the people dismissing the people, whether they're Muslim or non Muslim, and he was accessible always and sensitive to the sufferings of the people. Whether the old or the young he said some Allahu Allah was to them. He or she is not of us, who is not respectful to our elders, and gentle to our youth.

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

The Muslim must have patience and sober

00:17:43--> 00:17:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala said was dinuba somebody was solid, or in Allah Kabira tune Illa Allah Allah hace even

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

seek help with perseverance and prayer.

00:17:58--> 00:18:11

wehrli is a difficult thing except those who have horseshoe brothers please move forward. Make room for the people who will come to you in sha Allah. Don't worry, you don't need to leave much space between the ranks.

00:18:24--> 00:18:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala said in sudo colossal

00:18:30--> 00:18:47

water was so bill hoppy water was so this summer and salty bayona he said water was so this rubbery water was so bill Morrow hammer

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

the Muslim is patient tolerant

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

understanding and sensitive

00:18:57--> 00:19:05

whether to the animals or to the young or to the old to the Muslim or non Muslim, they are showing dignified behavior.

00:19:07--> 00:19:12

The Muslim has good communication skills, he or she

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

learns to speak

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

where they are

00:19:19--> 00:19:52

the Muslim who comes from another country, you should not be satisfied to sit with your own people and talk your own language. No, you must give precedent to the language of the people where you have come to so that you may greet them and interact with them and talk to them and facilitate them. Why because communication is the key to the hearts of the human beings. If you want people to love you, to trust you to feel for you to accept you, you must learn that language.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always he appointed someone to go learn the language of such and such

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

to people, so we may know them.

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

The Muslim must have convincing arguments

00:20:09--> 00:20:14

and propositions to people. convincing argument doesn't mean to yell.

00:20:16--> 00:20:53

Doesn't mean to get angry. It doesn't mean you want to win an argument to debate. No, it means that you listen to what people say, and you digest it. And after that, you say, Okay, that sounds interesting. But let me give you this proposition. So you listen to them, and you respect them. But you tell them listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala said, look to what our prophets, a lot of them said, think about this. What do you think about that? Okay, listen, if we don't agree today, Alright, good. Have something to drink. Maybe I'll see you tomorrow, come back, we'll talk another time. And leave them.

00:20:54--> 00:21:07

Give them good arguments. study what it is they're saying to you. Do not dismiss it. Don't only listen, because you want to wait for them to end. And then you want to talk No, listen carefully to what they say.

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

And if you don't understand it fully,

00:21:11--> 00:21:27

don't try to be clever. Just say to them, I don't completely understand what you said. And I don't have an answer for you today. But in sha Allah, I will enter you another time. How about we meet here tomorrow or the next day has something to drink? How about you come to my house? Get let me have your number.

00:21:31--> 00:21:41

The Muslims should be prepared for leadership. You should not work with the coup for for years and years and years, as a subordinate to them.

00:21:43--> 00:21:51

Why? Why should the Muslim be subordinate to the kuffar in any level? Whether in the industry, whether in the school?

00:21:52--> 00:22:31

Why should you be subordinate to them for years and years? No, you have to learn whatever skill It is, in whatever field you are, and you become the leader, set up your own business, become the foreman, become the boss, become the president become the chairman become the leader, even in your neighborhood, you become the one who initiate the programs to clean the neighborhood to keep the neighborhood safe. Let them look to you for the problems. Let everyone in your neighborhood. non Muslims come see Abdullah, you got a problem. You're hungry. Somebody in the neighborhood is creating problems. Go see Abdullah he will handle it.

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

The Muslim must be a leader.

00:22:35--> 00:22:41

He must be the man that when people have problems, they come to him to resolve that problem.

00:22:42--> 00:22:54

You go to your neighbor and you tell them my name is Abdullah. My name is Mohammed. My name is Ahmed. My wife is there. I'm your neighbor. If you have any problems at all, come and see me. I will take care of it for you inshallah.

00:22:55--> 00:23:05

And you go see all of your neighbors like that they will all say, Did you get a visit from this guy? who appointed him? He's telling us he can handle all the problems in the neighborhood.

00:23:06--> 00:23:12

Yes, we can handle all the problems in Sharla. Because the kuffaar

00:23:13--> 00:23:19

they accepted Mohammed Salallahu alaihe salam to come to Medina to come to yesterday.

00:23:20--> 00:23:36

And it was acceptable for them to call yathrib Medina to Nabi sallallahu wasallam. Why not because they were willing to accept his message, not because they were prepared to accept this lamb, but because they heard of his ability to resolve problems.

00:23:38--> 00:23:52

They knew that he was a problem solver. And they were on the verge of civil war. So they agreed, yes, go and get Mohammed Salas, him and bring him to our city, and he will be for us as an arbitrator.

00:23:53--> 00:24:01

When they heard the Quran, and they saw his behavior, they accepted him as the leader of the city. And so Allah subhanaw taala guided him to that position.

00:24:03--> 00:24:11

All Muslims in the city where you are, through your character, if you become the arbitrators, you become the leaders and you are respectful, the people will bring the problems to you.

00:24:12--> 00:24:17

You don't have to run for office. Just you have to polish your behavior.

00:24:18--> 00:24:27

The Muslim must have wide knowledge about where he or she is at. If you live in Australia, know everything about Australia.

00:24:28--> 00:24:43

What its major cities, what's his industry, what's his problems? What's his infrastructure, who is leaders? What is his history? What's its culture, you must know everything about it, why not because you want to swallow the culture or follow the culture.

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

But when you know about people, you can be sensitive to their problems. You cannot come to this country as an adult. And all you care about is the Arabs. You cannot come to this country as an Asian from indo Pak continent. All you care about is your culture. You cannot come to this country from somewhere else and you form your own

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

Little enclave, and that's all you care about. Why do you think somebody should follow you because you immigrated here and all you care about is yourself? No. The Muslim must be white and his conduct, think Muslims, this country is very close to Indonesia, a country that the Muslims went to the Arabs, they went there. And what happened? They learned their language. They did business with them. They married their women, they helped them with their problems. They were kind to them and decent with them. And they taught them the religion. And now what is what is Indonesia today?

00:25:35--> 00:25:42

It is the largest Muslim country in the world. And no army ever went there. From what the behavior of the Muslims

00:25:43--> 00:26:00

or Muslims, the character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim. And we have to keep this in our minds. The inside of the Muslim is his Eman and his knowledge. But the outside it is his character that the world will see. Lacuna Coil he had our stop la de la la ku

00:26:10--> 00:26:12

and hamdulillah he woke up.

00:26:14--> 00:26:17

salat wa salam O Allah says Mustafa

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

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:26:22--> 00:26:25

said he was happy he was was he women? What What about

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

the Muslim brothers and sisters I want to say something to you.

00:26:31--> 00:26:45

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the most stingy of those that mentioned me or those who do not say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they mentioned me.

00:26:47--> 00:26:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala he said in the Quran, in Allahu wa Inca to who you said Luna Allah nadie

00:26:56--> 00:27:04

Yeah, you know, he's giving you the order. Yeah, you Hello Dina amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam Ooh, Taslima.

00:27:06--> 00:27:22

Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. All Muslims do not be stingy. When the named Mohammed comes, and we're talking about the Prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:27:24--> 00:27:42

Because Alon is angel said Who are we? We have to say, when anyone mentions Muhammad Mustafa Nabila Rasulullah say, let your children hear you say and say it openly and clearly. Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

All Muslims.

00:27:47--> 00:27:54

Part of the character of the Muslim is the aqeedah sticking to the issues of al Qaeda, what is the leader?

00:27:55--> 00:27:59

Understanding what is your relationship with Allah subhanahu wa taala

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

understanding the tower hade

00:28:05--> 00:28:13

understanding the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala over his creatures, what is it that distinguishes us from the kuffaar

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

It is not just the words.

00:28:18--> 00:28:34

It is also the ideas which we have concerning Allah subhana wa Taala that we don't say anything about Allah other than what Allah has said about himself, or what we have received through authentic hadith from Rasul Allah. So Allah says about Allah.

00:28:38--> 00:29:06

The character of the Muslim also includes adapting the authentic sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Loving the Sunnah, not just accepting it but loving it. This is two different things. You tell somebody This is the son of the prophets law seminar man says, I know that this means I accept that. That means he say I hear but I don't obey.

00:29:07--> 00:29:20

Now, loving the message of a law, some of the law Allison said none of you can become a true believer until I become dearer to him than his father and his son and the whole of mankind.

00:29:22--> 00:29:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in the Quran forever Bukola human had you hachimura female shojo rabina home from mala Ji do fi unfussy him halogen mimica eight. Are you suddenly mu Taslima.

00:29:42--> 00:29:56

Allah swears he says follow a lot of buka follow our buka Allah swears, I swear or Mohammed so a lot of us have them by your Lord. They can never become true believers

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

until they make you

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

You have him a judge and an arbitrator

00:30:05--> 00:30:06

between them

00:30:09--> 00:30:11

for all of their affairs

00:30:13--> 00:30:23

and they do not find inside themselves. No reservation, no hesitation to follow your orders, but they accept them completely.

00:30:24--> 00:30:36

So when we hear a sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we prefer that over our desires. He said, none of you can become a true believer until

00:30:39--> 00:30:45

they give up their own ideas and their own inclinations for what I have brought.

00:30:47--> 00:30:51

So it is not Yes, I understand but there is no one I can.

00:30:53--> 00:30:54

There is no however,

00:30:55--> 00:31:09

you heard some our pa you heard the sooner you follow the sooner we cannot follow every sooner because we don't know sooner. But what we do, man is data as much as you can.

00:31:11--> 00:31:21

And if you do not follow a Sunnah you should feel ashamed of that and not try to give some excuses about it. So that you you hand this weakness over to your children.

00:31:22--> 00:31:36

Oh, I don't do this because of that. I have this excuse and this excuse and that and some scholar told me I didn't have to what you're doing. You're you're given to your sons and your daughters a fatwa of why they also should disobey the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:31:39--> 00:31:44

all Muslims, part of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam includes

00:31:46--> 00:31:51

adapting the dress of the Muslims. Now this doesn't mean you have to wear a turban.

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

It doesn't mean you have to wear a coffee.

00:31:56--> 00:32:07

doesn't mean you have to dress with a Saudis. Oh, no, but it means you should distinguish some part of your dress so that you are known as a Muslim.

00:32:08--> 00:32:25

Something that someone looks at you should know that you are a Muslim and distinguish you from the kuffaar. So you see how the Kufa how they dress, you should dress somewhere distinct from them. If you think you have to wear a suit and tie do that.

00:32:26--> 00:32:32

But if you wear a suit and tie and no coffee and no beard, what does distinguish you from the Kaffirs.

00:32:34--> 00:32:35

You wear a suit and tie put on a goofy

00:32:39--> 00:33:00

you must wear something distinguish you, of course your character is the best distinction. But in general, when we look out and see some crowd of people, there should be something about the Muslim that distinguishes him the prophet SAW last night and said the believer is the one that when you see him, he reminds you of a loss upon who what had.

00:33:01--> 00:33:10

He doesn't remind you of the last dollar in his Syrah. No, he reminds you of Allah subhanaw taala by his character and how looking at him

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

or her.

00:33:15--> 00:33:27

We follow the Sunnah of the Prophet lost him in the arrangement of our home. Our home should not be like the home of the Kaffirs. So you should not look in the home and garden magazine and tried to make your house look like that.

00:33:29--> 00:33:42

No, think to yourself, build your home around the salon. Make your home around the Salah, and around the comfort of your family which means what

00:33:43--> 00:33:59

make a place for the women. So the men do not have to come through the place of the women and the women can be safe and they can be comfortable. You don't have your house set up like the kaphas so the women and men come to the same door. They all sit down to eat together. No this is the preferred way.

00:34:02--> 00:34:05

Arrange your home according to the son of the prophets, a lot of them.

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

Get rid of the excess, make it simple.

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

The men of your speech

00:34:18--> 00:34:25

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to me Tom will attack Ross, man after woman lamb tarrif

00:34:26--> 00:34:49

give food invite, and goat take the invitation. Invite an entry invitation, spread food spread goodness and give good greetings to everybody that you meet. Okay, we don't say to the Minister, the Kaffir Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh nobody don't say that to the capital of the capital says to us that I'm Aleykum or they consider

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

oh you can say to him

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

was Salam O Allah Manitoba? Peace be upon those who follow the guidance

00:35:01--> 00:35:07

Allah subhanaw taala says, answer the greeting With what? One that is equal or one that is better.

00:35:10--> 00:35:13

So for careful, he says you Salaam Alaikum what you say What?

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

You can say why they come.

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

But he said to you peace.

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

You cannot say to him Peace.

00:35:26--> 00:35:31

Peace is not a sacred word that is only reserved for Muslims. There's nothing in the Hadith about that.

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

Peace is a word of security,

00:35:36--> 00:35:43

safety, honesty, clear intention, somebody said to you peace, you kind of say peace. You say well,

00:35:46--> 00:35:51

no, we give the special greetings specific reading for the Muslims.

00:35:52--> 00:36:05

The Prophet said a lot of them said, As salam, O Allah, Manitoba, alhuda peace, be upon those who follow the guidance. So they hear you say back to them peace.

00:36:06--> 00:36:11

This is Adam, this good manners. You see the wisdom of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:36:13--> 00:36:23

Greetings in the cultural etiquettes you should not be impressed by the civilization that you live in. Do not show them that you are impressed by them.

00:36:25--> 00:36:49

Walking around downtown looking at their buildings, going to their museums, standing around with them, going to their parties, setting your tables like them, wanting to dress like them. designing your house like them. And feeling in front of them subordinate cowed down, and also wanting to be like them happy when you see them.

00:36:50--> 00:37:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala said the believers are those who are strong against the kuffar not arrogant but firm, while Ruhama Bina whom we have reversed it. We are strong against our Muslim brothers and towards the kuffaar. We

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

know

00:37:12--> 00:37:31

we don't take them as friends. What does that mean? Friends, somebody say I have a non Muslim friend, how is your friend, friend means he's intimate to you. You can rely upon him, you can trust him. Now we cannot rely upon them. We can't trust them except in general things. I have a neighbor.

00:37:32--> 00:37:53

Sometime he will cut my grass sometime he will watch my house. I'm someplace on vacation. He's my neighbor, he tells me, you leave me the key. I'll make sure the alarm is set. I'll make sure such and such I'll keep this I'll do that that's different. But we don't take them as friends and intimates relying upon them, taking advice from them,

00:37:54--> 00:38:19

wanting to be with them, trusting them marrying them. No, we don't have that kind of relationship with them. Allah Subhana Allah says, Are you believe do not take the Jews and the Christians as friends and protectors, men dunlea. And another place he says when doing meaning. They are friends and protectors only of each other. Your friends are none other than Allah and His messenger and the believers.

00:38:23--> 00:38:34

We do not rely upon the institutions and their services, all Muslims. You send your wives to the hospitals. You send your wives to the clinics. And the kuffaar is examining them

00:38:35--> 00:38:37

and you don't care.

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

You tell your wife don't say Salaam to the brother. You're not supposed to say Salaam to the brother.

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

But she gets in a taxi ride with the Kufa

00:38:49--> 00:38:55

she goes to the hospital. The doctor says, oh, okay, Mrs. Ibrahim, I'll take off your clothes. I'll be right there.

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

You don't mind?

00:39:01--> 00:39:04

No, we need to have our own clinics.

00:39:05--> 00:39:07

We need to have our own schools.

00:39:08--> 00:39:18

We need to have our own institutions. So we do not have to rely upon the institution's the schools and the clinics of the Kufa who will violate us and disrespect us.

00:39:19--> 00:39:25

All of that calls for consolidating our own economics and trusting each other, or Muslims.

00:39:27--> 00:39:30

We should not participate in their political systems.

00:39:31--> 00:39:53

Yes, if the Imam of the Emir of Sydney, Australia of Sydney, Australia, the leader of the Muslims in Australia said everyone go out and get a voter registration card because we will use this as some kind of strength. We will do it. We will do it. But we're not running for office. We're not trying to be the mayor of Sydney.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

We don't want to be the MP. We don't want to join the MP circles. We don't want to join them. No

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

Because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he did not join them in their circles and he did not bring them in his circles. Never.

00:40:08--> 00:40:13

And neither did Abu Bakr Siddiq on top and now they are final.

00:40:14--> 00:40:20

And these are examples. We deal with them on our terms, not on their terms

00:40:22--> 00:40:31

are Muslims. We do not collaborate with them in religious matters, this whole idea of interfaith there is no such thing.

00:40:32--> 00:40:43

No such thing in Medina in the Lucha Islam, the dean in front of Allah, Islam, there's no interface, we can sit with them and talk with them.

00:40:44--> 00:40:51

Compare, tell them this is what Allah subhanaw taala said, this was the Messenger of Allah, some a lot of them said.

00:40:52--> 00:40:59

And we can give them nnessee ha, listen to them, but we don't join their faith in ours, like it's a sandwich.

00:41:01--> 00:41:24

A little bit of this and a little bit of that, the good from our religion and the good from your religion, a little bit of Judaism, a little bit Islam, a little bit of this, a little bit of mushrik, a little bit of Buddhism, a little bit of that, and then put it all together into one. Again, one world faith as some Muslims, they have went astray deviant and they're joining with the kofod to make one world faith.

00:41:26--> 00:41:36

know Allah subhanho wa Taala says, who would love the hell out of Sula who've been who that what Dena Huck the you the hitter who Allah Dini, Cooley, Willow Kelly have Cafiero.

00:41:37--> 00:41:49

It is He Allah who sent His messenger Mohammed so a lot of us have them with the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah, Medina and Islam the aqeedah

00:41:50--> 00:42:03

the youth the hero who Allah Dini Cooley in order that it may do what it may dominate and prevail, prevail and conquer of all of the Dean's, even though the kuffaar will hate it. How you will do this.

00:42:04--> 00:42:17

If you are melting Islam down and mixing it up with them, they will never respect you. And Allah subhanaw taala told us, they will never be satisfied to you with you, even if you accept their religion.

00:42:19--> 00:42:23

If you abandon your religion and join them, still they will disrespect you.

00:42:24--> 00:42:29

So all Muslims don't do it. All of this is part of our character. This is part of the distinction of our religion.

00:42:31--> 00:42:52

Our good manners is what we need to show to the people. Be good citizens, be peace loving people, be productive people, progressive people, compete with them and everything. The good of Australia, take it, use it, exemplify it, mix it with Islam, Islam takes the good of everything and everybody

00:42:54--> 00:42:57

but we don't compromise our Islam for nothing and no one.

00:43:01--> 00:43:02

This is our character.

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

This is the distinction of our Deen

00:43:06--> 00:43:22

or Muslims. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One tackle more rough rule for hoodoo woman her kumaun Fanta who so take what the prophet sallallahu ellefson has given to you

00:43:24--> 00:44:16

and leave alone that which he has forbidden you all Muslims. Keep these messages in your mind. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said la can be so nutty, was sooner to hola faraci de la DE LA Noire Jovi upon you is the following of my son and the son of the Holy Father Raja de la de hold on to them with the Molas of your teeth, not the front teeth that can be pulled out, but the back teeth, hold on to them. Don't give up. Hold on to that and follow the sooner. What does that mean for us, following the son of the first generation, following the son of the second generation, following the Sunnah of the third generation, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:44:16--> 00:44:24

sallam, the tablet and Atiba vein hold on to them. Those are examples. This is where and the proof of our character

00:44:26--> 00:44:32

all Muslims, keep these points in mind. This is my advice for you and advise myself about law.

00:44:34--> 00:44:35

Your local law.

00:44:37--> 00:44:41

Roberta dunia has an automobile accident. He has senator Joaquin

00:44:43--> 00:44:45

Robinette in the middle of Oklahoma,

Allah, Allah Allah azza wa jal Bluewater mucho mucho about wacky musala

00:45:56--> 00:45:57

What is the purpose of life of life?

00:46:03--> 00:46:11

Why is it that when we ask the simple question, what is the purpose of our lives?

00:46:13--> 00:46:15

Why do we get so many different answers?

00:46:19--> 00:46:23

Is because people haven't really thought about it.

00:46:25--> 00:46:26

It's too frightening.

00:46:28--> 00:46:42

Not the question itself is frightening. But what's frightening is that if we answer it, clearly, it may change our lives. indelibly and we are afraid of change.

00:46:46--> 00:46:52

And now we have discovered that every part of creation that has been discovered is inside of a drop of water.

00:46:54--> 00:47:02

Well, the Quran already said that to us 1500 years ago, that we created everything in every single thing from water. The Quran said that

00:47:06--> 00:47:08

we want to talk this evening about

00:47:09--> 00:47:11

Jesus, the son of Mary,

00:47:13--> 00:47:15

and his phenomenal birth.

00:47:19--> 00:47:20

A birth

00:47:21--> 00:47:26

that very few human beings, whether Muslims or Christians have any argument about

00:47:28--> 00:47:40

we believe, and our Koran makes it clear for us and confirms for us that Jesus Christ in fact, he was born without the intervention of sperm.

00:47:43--> 00:47:49

that his mother, Mary, that blessing woman, she became pregnant by the word of God.

00:47:52--> 00:47:53

No man touched her.

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

Eight murders

00:48:02--> 00:48:05

or homicides are committed every 19 minutes.

00:48:07--> 00:48:12

And two rates are committed every seven minutes

00:48:14--> 00:48:16

and they are three robberies

00:48:17--> 00:48:19

every 59 seconds.

00:48:22--> 00:48:35

There are 257,000 children that are legally or illegally aborted. That is 257,000 children are killed in the womb.

00:48:37--> 00:48:38

By license

00:48:40--> 00:48:42

21 million children

00:48:43--> 00:48:49

are born every year out of wedlock, who do not know their mothers and fathers

00:48:51--> 00:48:54

or who do not know whom they are fathered by

00:48:56--> 00:49:16

2.8 million suicides every year of human beings who find no reason to live with these kinds of social problems inside of their own boundaries inside of their own governments and their own institutions. How can they

00:49:17--> 00:49:18

bring peace to the world?

00:49:20--> 00:49:22

It doesn't make sense.

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

All Muslims?

00:49:29--> 00:49:41

Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds you and me that whatever good happens, it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and if something else happens, this is from our own hands.

00:49:45--> 00:49:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala he has ordered you and I to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

And when we cease to do that we don't enjoy in the right way.

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

don't enjoy, enjoy and we don't enjoy on the right we don't forbid the wrong then Allah subhanho wa Taala promise that he will visit us a calamity from himself.

00:50:13--> 00:50:14

So that

00:50:18--> 00:50:26

when the calamity happens, or you are punished, and the receiver comes upon you and you call upon Allah, He will not answer.

00:50:28--> 00:50:30

What do the Muslims of today expect?

00:50:34--> 00:50:40

The character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim,

00:50:41--> 00:50:47

not what he or she says, not only what he or she wears,

00:50:48--> 00:51:02

not where they come from, or who their mother or father is, or grandfather, not the country they live in, or for that matter if they live next to the Kaaba is not important at all.

00:51:03--> 00:51:06

It is the character because the character is the actual fruit.

00:51:09--> 00:51:22

And we can remember, on the occasion, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam invited his companions to make a sacrifice in the way of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:51:23--> 00:51:23

And

00:51:27--> 00:51:29

he brought half of his wealth.

00:51:32--> 00:51:34

And he considered this to have been

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

a major sacrifice.

00:51:38--> 00:51:39

And he was very proud of that.

00:51:42--> 00:51:46

But when Abu Bakar de la and came Abu Bakar

00:51:48--> 00:51:49

he brought all of his wealth.

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

And when the profits on the long line in some asked abubaker

00:51:57--> 00:52:04

what he had left for his family, what was the response of abubaker odilon. He said, Allahu Allah solo,

00:52:05--> 00:52:14

align His messengers, a lot of stuff. And it was by the suggestion or the order of the profits of the last time that Abu Bakar took back some of his wealth for his family.

00:52:17--> 00:52:19

And this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:52:20--> 00:52:21

mentioned

00:52:23--> 00:52:26

that there was no one from among the Muslims,

00:52:27--> 00:52:32

who displayed his loyalty to a lot of his messages, some of them similar to that of Abu Bakar.

00:52:36--> 00:52:44

So Allah subhanho wa Taala, he said, yes, definitely, who, who is better, who is more excellent

00:52:46--> 00:52:53

than the one that calls towards the loss of power dialer, not just calling, not just shouting, not just arguing,

00:52:55--> 00:53:04

while I'm in authority, but they are acting upon what they are calling, they are setting a precedent for what they are calling to.

00:53:06--> 00:53:19

They have established a behavior, a paradigm and example to what they are calling to. And they openly say, announce, I am Muslim.

00:53:22--> 00:53:33

We're oceans and rivers meet, does the ocean take over the river, it doesn't, although the ocean might be five times six times, eight times 10 times larger than a river.

00:53:35--> 00:53:37

And, you know, if you took two bodies of water,

00:53:38--> 00:53:40

and you put a funnel in between them,

00:53:41--> 00:53:44

what would happen the larger body would absorb the smaller body weight today.

00:53:46--> 00:53:54

But in the case of the ocean in the river, it doesn't happen because a LA City put a bus up so they do not overcome each other. And one of our

00:53:55--> 00:53:59

Jacques Cousteau who passed away now he was a marine biologist.

00:54:00--> 00:54:01

He was able to film

00:54:02--> 00:54:11

under the ocean, where the rivers meet the ocean. And the river meets the ocean and the ocean meets the river and they go back.

00:54:13--> 00:54:24

They meet and they go back. So therefore the river is returned back to itself and the ocean returns back to itself and they do not overcome each other. How does the Prophet know that?

00:54:27--> 00:54:37

Islam has five fundamental pillars, the first of which is to bear witness that there's none of you worship except Almighty God, consistent with

00:54:39--> 00:54:43

the first commandment given to Moses, consistent with

00:54:44--> 00:54:54

the first commandment that Jesus Christ also said is the greatest of the commandments to Israel, the Lord thy God is one. Absolutely one, not the number one.

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

Not the number one that could be divided into 123

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

Not the number one that could be multiplied.

00:55:05--> 00:55:27

When absolutely one, having no one besides no other God Besides, he or Israel, the Lord that God is one. And that's your love the Lord thy God with all thy heart of the mind or the soul, and thou shalt not worship anyone except the Lord that God, no bow down to any graven images in the heavens of the earth, or the sea below.

00:55:29--> 00:55:34

Such said Moses, and said, confirm Jesus Christ, and such says the quote, and

00:55:36--> 00:55:41

this is what we bear witness. And this is the first pillar of Islam and the most important.

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

If war erupts in Iraq, more than 3000 missiles will be rained upon Iraq in the course of 66 hours, and more than a half a million people will be killed.

00:55:57--> 00:55:58

Can you tell me

00:55:59--> 00:56:02

how the lives of a half a million people

00:56:04--> 00:56:15

are equal to a leader Saddam Hussein, if America was able to go into South America and pull out what was the guy's name general

00:56:17--> 00:56:18

Noriega,

00:56:20--> 00:56:24

America was selling drugs with Noriega, but then Noriega flipped on them.

00:56:25--> 00:56:37

So they went in and took this man from his country, brought them out and put them in jail for life in their country. So why don't just go into Iraq and pull out saddam? No, they need to go into Iraq.

00:56:38--> 00:56:57

Why? Because you will find that in a matter of six months after the war, the prices in the oil will go down. And as we speak, right now, there are 27 mega companies, mega companies who are bidding for contracts for the reconstruction of Iraq, what does have to do with Saddam Hussein, and democracy.

00:57:01--> 00:57:02

If a man

00:57:03--> 00:57:06

had to get pregnant and have a baby, he would die.

00:57:09--> 00:57:14

And then on top of that, if he had to look forward to taking care of that child for the next

00:57:15--> 00:57:21

10 1520 years, and sometime the mother, she's taking care of a grown child,

00:57:23--> 00:57:25

men who still live with their mothers,

00:57:27--> 00:57:28

you couldn't do it.

00:57:30--> 00:57:34

And still, she's taking care of herself. And she's taking care of her husband.

00:57:35--> 00:57:37

Male loss upon the reward, those sisters

00:57:38--> 00:57:40

and male law cover their false

00:57:41--> 00:57:54

male law cause the husbands and brothers and sons to appreciate them, because they are the goodly trees that bear the goodly fruit, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran,

00:57:57--> 00:58:12

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he made brotherhood, very sacred, very important is the whole basis of the Muslim society brotherhood. And when there's no brotherhood, believe it, there is no substance among the Muslims.

00:58:13--> 00:58:14

No substance.

00:58:18--> 00:58:24

The first principle and characteristic of dow is that the die has to have knowledge.

00:58:27--> 00:58:29

Not just ambition.

00:58:30--> 00:58:57

Not just emotional drive, and not just a reaction to some insult that somebody has said, and not just a feeling to want to give down because you know, it's the obligation all those things are good, and it's all necessary. But without knowledge, what are you gonna do, but always show your composure and your willingness to talk to anybody? Because why

00:58:58--> 00:59:10

you put your trust in the last panel data from the very beginning. The message of a lost lost him he didn't have all the answers, but he put his trust upon law a law says to him for tobacco Allah in condone
