Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

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

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

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

this is your brother Shakeology. I seen speaking to you from Philadelphia on August 11, around 930 In the evening,

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

I made a previous lecture today,

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

which you can go to my Facebook page and review.

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

But

00:00:30--> 00:00:44

I want to make a very short and concise comment on the unfortunate issues surrounding Imam Suraj and his family members.

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

There's a lot of conjecturing

00:00:52--> 00:01:03

and unsubstantiated public reactions to the unfortunate issues regarding the family members of Imam Suraj will hedge.

00:01:05--> 00:01:20

Now some of these conjectures are well meaning and are sincere reactions to the media's sensationalism and historical exploitation of such issues.

00:01:21--> 00:01:30

While most of the comments are just judgmental, baseless, and subjective.

00:01:32--> 00:01:41

In this short statement, I want to just simply say that all of us need to reread

00:01:44--> 00:01:47

the many references in the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:01:48--> 00:01:58

Regarding hearsay, slander, conjecture, tail bearing, gossip, and backbiting.

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

Now, since we all use social media,

00:02:05--> 00:02:21

and most of us have the Quran, in our houses, we also have access to the sources of the Sunnah. There's no need for me to delineate the many verses and Hadith about this issue.

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

It's clear,

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

but we need to reread it

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

and then apply it to our own selves.

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

At this critical time,

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

every Muslim

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

who knows Imam Suraj

00:02:42--> 00:02:50

should be praying for the Imam and his family. That's what we need to be doing. Nothing is more powerful than prayer and good words.

00:02:51--> 00:03:03

And we should be reserving our opinions. Until the clear evidence is uncovered. Not just not evidence about Imam Suraj is evidence regarding his family members.

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

Secondly,

00:03:09--> 00:03:17

we must vigilantly defend the honor and the integrity of our Imam.

00:03:19--> 00:03:36

Again, we must vigilantly defend the honor and the integrity of Imam Suraj from the diabolical motives of the mainstream media sources because the aim is not to promote or to publish the truth

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

is to sell newspapers.

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

It is to sell newspapers, increase their ratings

00:03:48--> 00:03:56

and continue to undermine and demonize Islam and Muslims everywhere.

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

Today,

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

it is Imam Suraj

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

tomorrow, it is you

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

or I

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

or anyone for that matter, who represents and articulates the principles of Islam.

00:04:17--> 00:04:22

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect the Imam and his family

00:04:24--> 00:04:28

to protect the Imam, his family and his congregation.

00:04:30--> 00:04:49

From the snakes, the dogs, the hyenas and the devils who live through the smell of blood, and historically have never been fair or faithful when it comes to Islam and Muslims. Finally,

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

This is the time that all of the organizations and in

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

individuals,

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

especially in the United States of America and around the world, whom the Imam have served for the past 40 years. This is the time

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

that they should repay

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

his service

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

by coming forward

00:05:22--> 00:05:27

to put a wall of defense and support for the Imam.

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

I don't need to say anything more.

00:05:33--> 00:05:53

May Allah subhanho wa Taala cause all of us to reflect upon this matter as Muslims. And as for those who are not Muslims, if you are fair minded individuals, then we ask you to continue to be decent and dignified in your treating of this issue.

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

Well, salaam aleikum wa Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
