00:01:48--> 00:01:53

I will echo to Kira Mahabharata say Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

00:02:03--> 00:02:11

Dear brothers and sisters, we think Allah subhanho wa Taala for the opportunity to discharge our responsibilities.

00:02:16--> 00:02:21

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Edina naziha

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

to come companions, they asked him lemon.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

He said lillahi

00:02:37--> 00:02:44

Wali kitabi wala Rasulullah he Walia immortal muslimeen what Matthew him

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:52--> 00:02:56

said to his companions, or their loved one whom

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

the dean

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

is advice and conformance.

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

And they asked him advice and conformance

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

to whom

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

he said,

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

advice and conformance to a law

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

and to his book

00:03:24--> 00:03:40

and to his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advice and conformance to the leadership of the Muslims and the advice and conformance of the Muslims to one another in the general population.

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

In the Salah, our Eman he recited for us.

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

And advice from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

that began with a question

00:04:03--> 00:04:07

the question Allah subhanaw taala as this are you who believe

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

why is it that you say

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

what you don't actually do?

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

hateful is it in the sight of a law that you say

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

what you don't do

00:04:27--> 00:04:30

and the sort of continued

00:04:32--> 00:04:37

in the law you have blood in your car didn't officer be Lisa Frank and ammonia muscles.

00:04:40--> 00:04:51

And this is very important for us to understand why these is. In the law. You have blood in your Cardinal feasability saffron kandovan banjarmasin muscles, what comes after that question?

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

What is the context

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

Because the Muslims

00:05:04--> 00:05:08

we are very particular about religious matters.

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

We argue with each other about religious matters.

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

we differ with each other about religious matters.

00:05:19--> 00:05:27

We stand even in different places behind different people based on religious matters.

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

Yet knowing the time for the Salah comes we're not able to do that

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

when the Salah comes it can only be behind one Mmm.

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

So no matter what different opinions we have,

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

what different

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

feelings

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

matter Hibbs

00:05:56--> 00:06:03

which we share and what different arguments we have and what different approaches we have.

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

When the order comes after musalla

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

no one has any choice

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

but to form the SFX

00:06:20--> 00:06:25

because Allah subhana wa tada says, in the law, you have bola de partie, Luna fiesta de

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

cannon Banjara mussels.

00:06:32--> 00:06:40

In the law, you have bullet in your particular feasibility, soften, soften can narrow muscles.

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

And if the Muslims

00:06:47--> 00:06:51

were to take their positions,

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

outside of the masjid as they do inside of the masjid,

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

most of the problems with some Muslims have in the world today

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

would be over.

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

But we are willing to come to the mosque, those of us who come

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

and line up

00:07:18--> 00:07:24

and respond to the Imam when he says the loo sufouh Fukuyama cola.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

We don't have a problem to respond to that because this is a matter of ritual.

00:07:31--> 00:07:40

It's a matter of ritual everywhere in the world. The Muslims, minimally if they do nothing else, they are performing this ritual, they are lining up.

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

And they are listening to the Imam. And when he says Allahu Akbar.

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

And he goes to ruku, they say Allahu Akbar, and they go to ruco.

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

When he says semi Allahu leemon hamidah, they are following.

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

Robin Allah kill him.

00:08:02--> 00:08:09

When he goes to such that they go to such that when it comes back, so forth, and so on, until he makes tasleem.

00:08:10--> 00:08:16

Immediately after the man makes teslin, he loses the command of the people, nothing.

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

Now everyone has his own opinion, again,

00:08:21--> 00:08:29

everyone has is on their hip is messed up again, everyone has his own approach. Everyone goes back to their own home,

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

each their own food

00:08:33--> 00:08:36

and fulfills their Islamic responsibility

00:08:38--> 00:08:44

as individuals. And so here is where the problems begin.

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

And this is where the problems can be resolved.

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

Now as a new Muslim,

00:08:57--> 00:09:04

I have to admit that there are many of you sitting here today whose classical knowledge of Islam

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

far beyond what I can say.

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

So there is no need for me

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

to try to give you a great deal of classical information.

00:09:18--> 00:09:30

Because what the man cannot give you, there are others who can give and what they cannot give. They're in the books here in your library, or they're in the books in your homes.

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

So what can a new Muslim offer

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

when there's so much classical information available for us?

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

But I can recall for myself

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

struggling

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

as a new Muslim.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

To understand why the Muslims with all of their classical knowledge

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

How it is

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

that they form

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

very strong

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

minorities in the Western countries

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

but they outside of the masjid, outside of the masjid.

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

their voice is only a whisper

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

inside the mosque,

00:10:35--> 00:10:47

the Muslims who live in Australia, the Muslims who live in America, the Muslims who live in the UK, inside the masjid, in and around the mosques, the Muslims, they have very loud voices.

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

They have lots of opinions.

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

They are very strong

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

about their feelings.

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

And they are doing many acts of worship.

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

But outside of the mosque,

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

their voices are hardly a whisper

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

and the evidence, the evidence of their religion, the evidence of the Quran and the evidence of the prophets, a lot Islam Sunnah,

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

is hardly more than a gesture.

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

And so I

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

as a new Muslim,

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

I always wanted to know why.

00:11:47--> 00:11:52

Why is that the common person outside of the mosque who live around this mosque.

00:11:54--> 00:11:59

And certainly more non Muslims live around this mosque. Then there are Muslims.

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

For every one Muslim who lives around this mosque,

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

or who pass in front of this mosque,

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

there is another 99

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

who is a non Muslim.

00:12:18--> 00:12:22

And I can tell you as a new Muslim, that the 99 people

00:12:23--> 00:12:35

who pass in front of this mosque for every one Muslim that comes here, or prays here are those 99 very few of them have any idea what we do inside

00:12:38--> 00:12:46

where they gain the information about what we do and who we are. They gain it from television,

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

they gain it from the radio, they gain it from magazines, and they gain it from newspapers.

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

Why?

00:12:59--> 00:13:04

Because we Muslims who come in and out of the mosque.

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

We only discuss Islam.

00:13:08--> 00:13:17

And we only do the rituals while we in the mosque. But outside the mosque, in the workplace, where we're working with the non Muslims

00:13:18--> 00:13:25

in the colleges where our children go or where some of us have attended. We don't talk to them about Islam.

00:13:27--> 00:13:35

And in our neighborhoods where we live predominantly with non Muslims. We don't talk to our neighbors about Islam.

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

Islam for us is personal.

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

It's personal.

00:13:43--> 00:13:52

It's our religion. It's our faith. It's our tradition. And we just live in among the non Muslims

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

because

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

there is some benefit for us to do so.

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

And I can say to the Muslims here

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

that this issue itself,

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

our attitude

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

regarding the non Muslims, it has contributed as much

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

to our condition

00:14:18--> 00:14:25

as the intrusion into our lands, they are raping of our women, they're killing of our children.

00:14:28--> 00:14:39

They're confiscating of our natural resources, and they're stepping upon our faces and their disrespect of our religion. We have contributed as much towards it.

00:14:42--> 00:14:47

Now, we could easily be reactionaries, we can be angry,

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

we can shout and we can march and we can point and we can blame and we can say George Bush, Tony Blair, john Howard, this one yahoodi blah blah so on. So we can

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

Say.

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

But as I move around the Muslim world, and hamdulillah

00:15:08--> 00:15:09

as a new Muslim,

00:15:10--> 00:15:14

I have been to probably every country that is represented here.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

Maybe there are 37 different nationalities here.

00:15:20--> 00:15:25

So I have visited at least 37 countries where the Muslims are my majorities,

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

another 26 countries where Muslims are minorities.

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

So I have seen the Muslims

00:15:36--> 00:15:42

and in most cases, the Muslims, we are blaming others.

00:15:43--> 00:15:55

And we should be blaming them because they are in most cases, they are concerning a lot as messengers, a lot of us to them and the issues of the AMA and the issues of Eman, they are worthy of blame.

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

But what about us?

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

Are we worthy of blame?

00:16:05--> 00:16:09

And what can we do to reverse the condition which we are in?

00:16:14--> 00:16:18

In the eye? Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala asked us the question.

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

Why is it you say what you don't do?

00:16:25--> 00:16:59

It means here, not that we don't read the Quran. Not that we don't read Hadees not that we don't perform the rituals that we have been ordered to do. Not that we don't support kalama La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu azim not we don't pray, yes, we do pay zakat, or we at least admit we should play soccer. Yes, we do fast in the month of Ramadan. Yes, we we go and make Hajj. But what do the Muslims do? Besides that?

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

What do they do besides that?

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

Most of us sitting here, our families

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

originally came from another place.

00:17:14--> 00:17:20

There are not too many people in this room here who are themselves our original Australians.

00:17:22--> 00:17:30

Your second generation, third generation, fourth generation, fifth generation, maybe Australians.

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

Your great grandfather or grandfather or father

00:17:39--> 00:17:56

came here under certain conditions, or your father's came here under certain conditions. And you came here under certain conditions. And in most cases, the conditions had something to do with the destabilization of the country in which way you came from.

00:17:59--> 00:18:05

The destabilization, the social, political, economic destabilization of that country.

00:18:06--> 00:18:16

And most of the time, the very people who we wind up living with them are the people who contributed to the destabilization of our countries.

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

So think about the irony, how Allah subhanho wa Taala forces US forces us out of our homes we didn't choose to leave,

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

forced us out. And we wind up in the very place of the people who contributed to forcing us out.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

And when we found ourselves on the way

00:18:45--> 00:18:55

or before we got here, we had the desire to be someplace where we could speak our minds, because

00:18:56--> 00:19:00

when they destabilized our countries, they put in the place.

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

They put there for us

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

unjust rulers.

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

They educated them.

00:19:12--> 00:19:13

They gave him the orientation.

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

They gave him their seats, and they told them how to rule the Muslims and they had been ruling us.

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

And so our

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

our leaders

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

forget their names, because it's not important.

00:19:39--> 00:19:42

Our leaders have contributed

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

to more tyranny Sora oppression

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

of Muslims then all the kaphas together.

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

I will lead us today.

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

I cannot speak this way to my Muslim

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

Brothers

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

and the 14 major countries where Muslims reside in the world today, I cannot speak this way they will not allow me

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

but the non Muslim they allow me

00:20:12--> 00:20:17

Mashallah my country, America, the big old presser.

00:20:18--> 00:20:25

They allow me to travel around the world and to speak and to preach and to teach.

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

Of course there's a price

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

and I'm willing to pay that price Mashallah.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

And someone from Australia he can do the same.

00:20:37--> 00:21:00

And a Muslim from UK can do the same. And a Muslim from France, he can do the same. Why? Because at least Allah subhanho wa Taala have placed in these countries in their basic Constitution, the ability for us to speak wares in Muslim countries who are the holders of the Quran.

00:21:02--> 00:21:08

Allegedly the preservers of the Sunnah we have no right to speak, even we have no right to even gather.

00:21:10--> 00:21:19

Now I'm saying all this because I want you to understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala. By his design, he took us from one place in which

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

we had the traditional name Muslim, but we did not have the right to gather or to speak, or to preach. We didn't have it. Here we are in another place all of us, where we have the right to do it, but we don't.

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

We don't.

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

In America,

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

on an average

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

of 78,000 people become Muslims every year.

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

This is after September the 11th. Just this past year, 103,000 people become Muslims in America

00:22:08--> 00:22:13

last year 87,000, the year after September 11 78,000,

00:22:15--> 00:22:18

before September 11, on an average of 46,000.

00:22:21--> 00:22:25

So we would wonder how the number jumped like that.

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

When the Muslims are under the greatest amount of oppression,

00:22:31--> 00:22:38

where the name of Islam is being bashed and trashed, shattered and battered and scattered every place.

00:22:40--> 00:22:49

Confused Muslims Islam, Quran Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is being confused, mixed up with terrorism, fanaticism, extremism.

00:22:51--> 00:22:55

Yet, as the Imam he recited in the prayer,

00:22:57--> 00:23:07

they intend to blow out the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala to extinguish the light of Allah subhanaw taala by blowing with their mouths,

00:23:08--> 00:23:24

but Allah would not have it that his light be extinguished, but that he would protect it, even though the unbelievers of the moon affix, or the mushriks they would hate it. This his plan.

00:23:26--> 00:23:38

And I want to tell you, brothers and sisters, that the 78,000 people or the 87,000 people, or last year, the 103,000 people who have entered Islam, in America,

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

most of them are entering Islam through other new Muslims.

00:23:50--> 00:24:04

Seven out of 10 people that accept Islam in the Western world, where most of the new Muslims are coming the Western world, seven out of 10 that accept Islam in the Western world, they are accepting it from New Muslims.

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

You would ask yourself, how is that now I don't say you don't contribute. You do

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

Mashallah, Allah. My teacher in Quran is from the Punjab.

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

My teacher

00:24:21--> 00:24:31

is from Egypt. My teacher in Akita is from Saudi Arabia. My teacher and reseller of the prophets of Allah is him

00:24:32--> 00:24:41

is from another place. So it's the teachers or from people like yourselves who have contributed what they supposed to contribute at hamdulillah

00:24:42--> 00:24:49

but the actual preaching of Islam and the spreading of Islam by mouth, person to person

00:24:50--> 00:24:54

primarily it is coming from New Muslims.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

I give you an example. Just

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

In the past three months, come to the lab.

00:25:04--> 00:25:09

And the past three months out of 237 charges

00:25:11--> 00:25:15

72 of those new shatters themselves over to give us your head.

00:25:19--> 00:25:29

Suddenly, two of the people who become Muslims in the last three months, which I know about 72 of them are the 237 they already give another Shahada.

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

And I wonder to myself, how is it that Muslims who are Muslim have their lives

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

born with the Quran in their mouth,

00:25:41--> 00:26:03

understanding from the beginning, who is Mohammed sallallahu wasallam, standing behind an environment someplace in the world, all of their lives, how they arrived in the Western world, eating and drinking, benefiting at a level that no one else in the world is eating and drinking and benefiting, how they don't talk to their neighbor.

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

They don't talk to their colleague in the university.

00:26:07--> 00:26:11

They don't talk to their co worker, about Islam.

00:26:13--> 00:26:21

And so we want to know why our condition is what it is. The prophets, a lot of them, he said, a time will come

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

when the nations of the world

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

will invite one another.

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

to consume the Muslims.

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

As if they were just like a plate of food,

00:26:38--> 00:26:47

they will invite each other to the Muslims, like some hungry people will invite each other to a plate of food when it is thrown in their midst.

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

And the companions was surprised of the low angle.

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

Because the prophets philosopher was telling him this, at what time

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

in the early stages, know,

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

after fertile neck

00:27:08--> 00:27:08

after

00:27:11--> 00:27:16

when the Muslims was very strong, very powerful.

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

And so they asked him he had also lost the lesson.

00:27:22--> 00:27:32

Will we be in the minority? Will we be a small number at that time when that happens to us? He told him no. On the contrary,

00:27:33--> 00:27:36

you will be in the majority you will be a very great number.

00:27:39--> 00:27:42

But your enemies, they will have no respect for you.

00:27:43--> 00:27:52

That's one What is our condition today in the Muslim world? We are 1.6 billion in the world today, the new statistic.

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

So we are a great number.

00:27:59--> 00:28:03

But what is our condition in the eyes of the non Muslims?

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

They have no respect for us.

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

Soccer Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

The next thing he said

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

he said they will have no respect for you.

00:28:23--> 00:28:36

And you will have no substance. Your substance will be like the bubbles on the ocean when it comes to the shore and goes back out.

00:28:39--> 00:28:43

froth scum, bubbles.

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

Trash.

00:28:50--> 00:28:53

He's speaking about our substance, not our numbers here.

00:28:54--> 00:29:01

And he said Allah subhanaw taala will strike something in your heart to just call one.

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

And those were adults he spoke speaking to

00:29:07--> 00:29:14

they should understand the language. But they did not. This was a new terminology they didn't know.

00:29:15--> 00:29:20

Because they asked him jasola law. Some of the law they said What is this one?

00:29:23--> 00:29:27

He said hotbit dunya walkera here to mote

00:29:30--> 00:29:41

in ordinary attachment, pursuit of dunya occupation, preoccupation, pursuit, love, attachment to dunya

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

and

00:29:44--> 00:29:50

an apprehension from whatever might lead to death.

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

Korea timeout is not just the idea of Dying Girl hit on Mount means that you hate the idea of death and anything that you

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

might lead to death, including inconvenience or injury.

00:30:06--> 00:30:11

Even the Muslims today, they don't want to be inconvenienced.

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

The Muslim today doesn't even want to be injured.

00:30:20--> 00:30:22

So, if you will not be inconvenience

00:30:24--> 00:30:39

and if you are not to be injured, in defense of this religion or in the propagation of this religion or in the establishment of this religion, then it means your condition is one where you have less devotion and commitment to the religion than your enemies.

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

All Muslims

00:30:45--> 00:30:51

we want to know when Allah subhana wa Taala says to us Oh lsvt Big

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

Bill hikmah

00:30:55--> 00:30:57

Walmart mo Ada tune has an

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

ability here accent.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

We hear this verse all the time.

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

We understand what it means grammatically.

00:31:11--> 00:31:17

We know that it is an order. It is fitness armor. what the law says oh, this is

00:31:18--> 00:31:20

an order. Invite.

00:31:22--> 00:31:23

Call.

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

To what?

00:31:26--> 00:31:32

To the civilian uptick. What is the severe Arabic the severe Arabic is and Islam.

00:31:33--> 00:31:37

Bill hikma what is that hikma, Sunnah.

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

And call an?

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

Well Mo,

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

and good speech.

00:31:47--> 00:31:49

Speech would you prepare

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

and you deliver

00:31:53--> 00:31:57

upon your convictions? What gentilhomme bility here

00:31:58--> 00:32:11

and then listen to their arguments, listen to what they have to say. And then after that, respond back to them with that which is better. And it's evidence in its proof. And in its delivery.

00:32:13--> 00:32:16

This was the last panel Darla told us to do.

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

Earlier Lord knows best those who

00:32:20--> 00:32:23

go astray from his path. And he knows best those who

00:32:24--> 00:32:28

are rightly guided those who are straight from this path.

00:32:29--> 00:32:40

The mushrikeen, the q4 from among the yahudi. And the answer and the end the Masada and Allah knows best those whose rightly guided from the mean and the Muslim mean, Allah He knows best.

00:32:43--> 00:32:49

Now every Muslim needs to ask themselves for the time which I have lived in the Western world.

00:32:51--> 00:32:52

Just from that time,

00:32:53--> 00:33:10

if I were in Australia for a year, and I came from there from another country, how long you've lived in the Western world, how long you have understood the English language, and I asked you the question, how many people have you yourselves spent the time

00:33:11--> 00:33:16

deliberately, with a plan with conviction

00:33:17--> 00:33:32

to deliver the Islamic values, we didn't say to deliver an Islamic pamphlet. We didn't say to give a booklet. We didn't say to give a tape recording, because this is not the real dour.

00:33:35--> 00:33:46

This is a gesture. When you can speak. When you can establish a relationship. The least you can do is just put a piece of paper in somebody's hands.

00:33:47--> 00:34:01

put something in their mailbox, reach in your glove compartment and give them a tape recording. Give them a booklet which was printed in India or Pakistan or Egypt or someplace else. Just give that to him and tell him read this.

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

This is not real.

00:34:05--> 00:34:07

This is what we call substitute dour.

00:34:09--> 00:34:13

The real dollar. It comes from the individual himself

00:34:14--> 00:34:15

because it's a different kind of dour

00:34:17--> 00:34:20

when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first arrived in Medina

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

when the real Tao began

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

because his level of Dawa in Mecca was one level.

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

This was the primary level.

00:34:36--> 00:34:49

Allah subhanho wa Taala giving to the prophets, a lot of them just enough people to deliver him to another place where they will have the basis and the platform to do the real dour.

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

So when they arrived in Medina

00:34:54--> 00:35:00

What do you think the First Order of the profits or loss it was regarding the people affected?

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

Deena, here we have the the answer. And the mohajir. Room.

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

alone.

00:35:09--> 00:35:22

What did the prophets Lawson tell them to do? Did he say to them, go about the streets of Medina, to the Jews and the Christians and the Muslim kid and the desert Arabs? Go and tell them about Allah subhanho wa Taala?

00:35:23--> 00:35:32

No, that wasn't the first order he gave them the first order he gave them was to to a mu time, water crows,

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

man of the woman Ganesh.

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

What kind of order is that?

00:35:41--> 00:35:44

Today we'll share with them your food.

00:35:47--> 00:35:51

Give the invitation and accept the invitation. This is what kind of order

00:35:53--> 00:35:57

does the social order it starts the basis of the dour

00:35:58--> 00:36:11

will take clothes, sell them, give them good greetings and return to them. Good greetings. A social order, which establishes the basis for our

00:36:12--> 00:36:19

men are after whom, you know, woman lambda Alif, and whom you don't know.

00:36:20--> 00:36:27

Now look at this year's look at this year, fundamental order and how it applies to us.

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

How many Muslims here

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

since you have been in this country,

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

you actually make it your business, your commitment

00:36:42--> 00:36:45

to invite a non Muslim, your colleague,

00:36:46--> 00:36:53

your co worker, or one of your neighbors to your house. How many of you make the effort every single week

00:36:54--> 00:37:14

you eat you and your family you eat together at least 1520 times a week, you and your family if you eat by yourself, if you only have a wife, if you have children, you're eating two or three times a day cooking your food. So I asked you out of the 15 to 20 times a day that week that you eat, how many

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

have invited a non Muslim to eat with them?

00:37:20--> 00:37:21

one meal a week.

00:37:23--> 00:37:44

And four times a week, four times four weeks, 60 times a month. You eat by yourself, you and your family. And of course you eat from time to time with other Muslims? And how many times that you have eaten with other Muslims? Did you take the time to invite

00:37:46--> 00:37:47

one of your neighbors,

00:37:48--> 00:37:52

one of your colleagues or one of your co workers to eat with you?

00:37:53--> 00:38:07

This answer will tell you why we are suffering in our situation with misunderstanding. The second thing, how many of us come in and out of our homes.

00:38:09--> 00:38:16

And we don't speak to our neighbor at all. We see him he sees us.

00:38:17--> 00:38:20

Maybe we waive or we nod our head that's it.

00:38:22--> 00:38:42

We enter our home and we sit with our family and we eat our food. We get out of our home, we get in our cars and we go to our work or to our place of business. And that's it. And we don't communicate. And we think to ourselves we wonder to ourselves, why the non Muslims they misunderstand us

00:38:43--> 00:38:50

they misunderstand us because we Muslims, we are concerned about ourselves.

00:38:53--> 00:39:02

And not only are we concerned about ourselves, but even within the Muslims themselves within the Muslims, Somali for Somali, Sudan It was too early.

00:39:03--> 00:39:09

African for African, Lebanese for Lebanese, Pakistani for Pakistani.

00:39:11--> 00:39:17

This is the way we are color his boom boom Allah de Lune every group for themselves.

00:39:19--> 00:39:26

And the only time we come together where there is some sense of unity is when we come to the mosque and we pray. That's it.

00:39:28--> 00:39:44

How are we are going to be understood by others. When we have divisions among ourselves and how Islam is going to be understood by the others. When we don't invite people to see Islam.

00:39:46--> 00:39:47

We don't invite them to see Islam

00:39:50--> 00:39:57

and how we will get people to see Islam when our characters are blocking the way

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

you see it

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

You would not know your mother.

00:40:05--> 00:40:11

Even though you know your mother very well, if she's standing on the other side of a frosted window.

00:40:14--> 00:40:16

You see, you call it the double glaze.

00:40:17--> 00:40:26

If your mother is on the other side of a double glazed window, you could not see her because she will be distorted. But it's your mother.

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

How you expect people to understand Islam?

00:40:34--> 00:40:37

When those who are representing Islam, the Muslims,

00:40:38--> 00:40:44

they are standing behind double glazed windows and what is the double glazed window?

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

It is our behavior.

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

It is our behavior.

00:40:51--> 00:40:53

Did you Muslims know

00:40:55--> 00:41:11

that our Muslim brothers and sisters in the UK in Australia and other places? Did you brothers know that the greatest amount of alcohol that is sold in the Western world? retail we're talking about? Of course the Muslims they don't produce the alcohol.

00:41:12--> 00:41:21

They're the non Muslims are smart enough now to know they produce it on a large level. But they know that Muslims are willing to sell it on a retail level.

00:41:23--> 00:41:28

So the statistic I tell you as a sociologist, this statistic is that in America,

00:41:29--> 00:41:46

in Europe, I don't know Australia yet, but I would almost venture to say yes it to here also in America, and in Europe. 62% of all the retail alcohol sold is sold by Muslims.

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

And in the UK, in particular.

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

The highest percentage of drug selling drug distribution is among

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

Muslims.

00:42:11--> 00:42:16

And there are some cities in the UK where Muslims prostituting their own sisters.

00:42:17--> 00:42:19

You can believe it you say How's that?

00:42:23--> 00:42:32

So this is our behavior. Not the behavior of all of us, obviously, but you and I we pass by our Muslim brother

00:42:33--> 00:42:39

selling haram selling cansia because he's selling to non Muslims

00:42:41--> 00:42:45

selling alcohol because he's selling to non Muslims

00:42:46--> 00:42:52

selling for his magazines because he's selling to non Muslims

00:42:54--> 00:43:05

selling lottery tickets and other gambling devices. Why? Primarily he's selling it to non Muslims. So since he's just selling to non Muslims, nevermind, we still say to him,

00:43:07--> 00:43:11

he kept Khalid chef hamdulillah Mashallah, how's your family?

00:43:12--> 00:43:31

And we meet them and we meet each other in the mosque, to do our rituals. But outside of the mosque, we do not enjoin the right and we don't forbid the wrong and so Allah subhanho wa Taala said to us, the identification for this oma is going to hire our

00:43:32--> 00:43:33

own Metin.

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

The NASS

00:43:37--> 00:43:42

tap mode Marula Bill Maher roof, what 10 how not America, what taught me

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

the characteristic of this ummah, is that we have been evolved, selected by Allah subhanho wa Taala to represent the rest of the Ummah, the rest of the nations, and what enjoining the right and forbidding the wrong.

00:44:02--> 00:44:13

The enjoying the right doesn't mean just simply speaking for the right enjoying the right means, as the prophet SAW a lot of senses. If any one of you see a moon car,

00:44:15--> 00:44:17

you should do what if you can

00:44:18--> 00:44:20

stop it with your hands.

00:44:21--> 00:44:31

And if you cannot, because you are too weak, or you will create more fitna or you have no authority to do so. Then he said, Do what

00:44:33--> 00:44:36

did the sand speak

00:44:38--> 00:44:40

and if you still feel weak,

00:44:41--> 00:44:48

no authority and you think it will create more fitna but you cannot control that he says

00:44:50--> 00:44:51

in your heart,

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

but this is called alpha men, the weakest form or expression of faith

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

Most of us, we have chosen the weakest form anyway.

00:45:05--> 00:45:09

So Islam is not represented properly.

00:45:10--> 00:45:20

We Muslims whom Allah subhana wa Taala put in the Western world, as his representatives. We Muslims who a lot put in the Western world and gave us strength,

00:45:22--> 00:45:35

gave us good houses, gave us good food, put our children in good schools, gave us good health services, gave us good environment, allow us to build muscles it

00:45:37--> 00:45:47

gave us the best environment allow us to go back and forth to our homes. Our countries allow us to go to height wherever we want to

00:45:50--> 00:46:05

allow us to have radio, television, newspaper, speak, tape, recorder, DVD, anything we want to do in the Western world we can do to promote Islam, but we don't do it.

00:46:06--> 00:46:17

So who is there to blame? It is we we Muslims? We have to blame ourselves. And I say to Muslims, this as a new Muslim.

00:46:19--> 00:46:22

Allah subhanho wa Taala have promised us

00:46:23--> 00:46:28

that when we do not enjoin the right and we do not forbid the wrong

00:46:29--> 00:46:36

then Allah subhanahu wa taala will visit us with a calamity from him self

00:46:37--> 00:46:47

is what his promises when the Muslims whom he has selected. They don't enjoin the right? And they don't forbid their own.

00:46:48--> 00:46:56

Whatsoever they are then a law since a special calamity on them from himself, which he designs

00:46:57--> 00:47:01

so that when they ask for his help,

00:47:02--> 00:47:03

he doesn't enter them.

00:47:06--> 00:47:13

And when they ask for relief from the oppression of the enemies, he doesn't help them.

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

And so Muslims,

00:47:19--> 00:47:23

we have right now a condition in the Muslim world

00:47:24--> 00:47:30

where there are presently 14 Muslim countries that are under occupation.

00:47:31--> 00:47:32

14

00:47:34--> 00:47:40

six of them, we have forgotten about them. They've been occupied so long, but eight of them

00:47:41--> 00:47:44

occupied in the last 20 years.

00:47:46--> 00:47:51

And the loss of Panama dollar, he designed this from himself.

00:47:54--> 00:47:55

Why because we Muslims.

00:47:56--> 00:48:00

We don't join the right. We don't forbid the wrong

00:48:01--> 00:48:09

and we don't do our responsibility. We have become like the Yahoo DS.

00:48:10--> 00:48:20

We blame them. But we are practicing Islam in the same way that they are practicing their religion as if it belonged to them.

00:48:22--> 00:48:25

So you look at the Muslims look at them.

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

The yahood is what they do.

00:48:29--> 00:48:32

They don't invite anybody to their religion never.

00:48:35--> 00:48:45

They leave the people to be misguided so they can be exploited. The Yahoo's don't invite nobody because if they invite somebody, they don't want to split the money, the benefits.

00:48:47--> 00:48:55

If they will invite somebody to their religion, they think they will also have to share with them the benefits. There'll be less people for them to exploit.

00:48:56--> 00:49:03

So they don't invite nobody because they believe that their hearts are the wrappings of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:49:04--> 00:49:14

So Muslims, we believe we have the Quran. We have the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we have this lamb.

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

But we don't invite anybody. Because we believe

00:49:21--> 00:49:22

that this religion This is for us.

00:49:24--> 00:49:25

And so

00:49:26--> 00:49:31

because that is our thinking, Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing to us

00:49:33--> 00:49:34

No, no.

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

If you don't do your job, Allah will replace you with another people.

00:49:44--> 00:49:45

And Muslims

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

are being replaced by another people

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

that call it

00:49:55--> 00:49:56

he's not one of the people.

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

Some people much better

00:50:01--> 00:50:02

Muslims are being replaced.

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

You should think for yourself,

00:50:09--> 00:50:11

what is your place in this society?

00:50:12--> 00:50:27

What is your reason for being here in this society? What justification Do you have to be in this society? What you will say to Allah subhanaw taala on the day of judgment about being among these people, for what reason you came among these people, you came to benefit,

00:50:28--> 00:50:37

you come to get their asylum, to get their protection, to get their education, to benefit from their standard of living.

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

what you came for

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

all of this is okay, if also along with that you are delivering the goods. Because you came here as a messenger.

00:50:52--> 00:50:57

Oh, Muslims from the other Muslim countries, oh, Muslims, they are

00:50:58--> 00:51:00

just like ambassadors.

00:51:01--> 00:51:22

You have been sent by Allah to this place to deliver his message. So what would you think about the person sent by a king, as the ambassador to go to a people that deliver a message, but when that man got there, he found everything was so nice there, he just decided to stay there with those people not even deliver his message.

00:51:30--> 00:51:32

So that King,

00:51:33--> 00:51:51

maybe he has to send someone after that person to arrest him, wake him up, and remind him that he was sent to those people to deliver a message, or Muslims. Don't wait for death to visit you.

00:51:53--> 00:52:01

Don't wait for some wrath to come to us. Because only two things can happen to us Muslims in this country, or America or the UK.

00:52:03--> 00:52:04

God forbid,

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

God forbid.

00:52:08--> 00:52:11

That some situation happens that Muslims are blamed for

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

which can happen in a day.

00:52:17--> 00:52:29

I honestly in my heart, from my investigation from what I know, I don't believe that Muslims themselves were principally responsible for September 11. I don't believe it.

00:52:31--> 00:52:37

Maybe some Muslims were indirectly through their intention allow them.

00:52:38--> 00:52:55

But from all intents and purposes and investigations from the intelligence community, from the security community, from the technological community, from the diplomatic community, all intents and purposes, it leads to the fact that a rogue operation took place, and that Muslims took the rap.

00:52:59--> 00:53:02

And I do believe it will not stop.

00:53:03--> 00:53:06

Some other situation is going to take place.

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

And Muslims will take the rack.

00:53:13--> 00:53:20

Only thing the results may be far worse than what happened in the aftermath of September 11.

00:53:22--> 00:53:24

Your freedom and my freedom,

00:53:26--> 00:53:34

the level of luxury or enjoyment which you have in speech and moving about, it may soon

00:53:35--> 00:53:36

disappear,

00:53:37--> 00:53:38

then what will we say then?

00:53:39--> 00:53:44

We won't have the chance to do dour, nobody will want to listen to our dour

00:53:45--> 00:53:50

or Muslims. You and I have a special opportunity.

00:53:52--> 00:53:58

We are here in the West, where the sentiments against Islam are the strongest.

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

But we have the best position to change those sentiments.

00:54:06--> 00:54:08

My brother, he said

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

that.

00:54:11--> 00:54:14

And I don't take the credit for this. He said that

00:54:16--> 00:54:21

our organizations or our work has produced over 5000 Shahada is exactly

00:54:23--> 00:54:25

the figure is actually about 11,000.

00:54:28--> 00:54:29

But this is not the real issue.

00:54:31--> 00:54:42

Because I learned a long time ago, that if Allah wants to guide somebody, he got them, not because of you. But he guides him because he want them to be guided.

00:54:43--> 00:54:53

But what I discovered long time ago, is not the people who enter Islam. It is the people who's hot change about Muslims.

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

It's called the allies.

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

If 11,000 people came into Islam, I tell you

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

40,000 the idea and feeling about Islam and Muslims have changed.

00:55:08--> 00:55:15

When I talk to 100 non Muslims, I expect each time, five, six or seven of them take Shahada, just like that.

00:55:16--> 00:55:28

Because the loss upon Allah has the hearts of the human beings ready and waiting just like that. If there's 100 non Muslims here, if they were here today, if they're here tomorrow, I will guarantee you almost

00:55:29--> 00:55:33

somewhere between three to 11, or 12, will become Muslims just like that.

00:55:34--> 00:55:39

That means on the average, five or six out of every 100, will take Shahada just like that.

00:55:40--> 00:55:53

Not because of harlot because they're empty, and they're confused. And their life has been destroyed. The non Muslim in the West, their family had been destroyed.

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

The alcoholism, the drug drug addiction in the West,

00:56:02--> 00:56:03

is so prevalent,

00:56:04--> 00:56:07

that in every family, every single family,

00:56:08--> 00:56:14

there are at least three or four or five drug addicts and alcoholics in every family.

00:56:18--> 00:56:41

2.8 million people just in the Western world, shoot themselves in the head, or cut their throat or cut their wrists or jump off a bridge, every year commit suicide, because they empty. They don't eat at the table anymore. So the family is destroyed. They don't take care, the young do not take care of the old and the old, they don't take care of the young. So Allah has removed Ratana from them.

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

The fathers have no respect among the children, and the children can nothing for the fathers and mothers. So a lot have removed from them, the feeling of family.

00:56:57--> 00:57:21

So we don't have to do anything to them. Allah subhanho wa Taala is punishing them himself. So they are empty. They don't have any answers. If you asked him about the values of life, about the conditions about death, about the purpose of life, if you ask them the principles they don't know how to answer, but we have the answers.

00:57:24--> 00:57:31

So I find that when I talk to non Muslims, I first talk to them just about life, not religion.

00:57:33--> 00:57:41

And after we talk about life, and they start to think to themselves, Yeah, I agree. You're right. I like the way you explain that point.

00:57:42--> 00:57:45

This is a good answer. When you get that answer from

00:57:46--> 00:57:52

as it does come from a Sacred Scripture. Is that what it what Scripture is that it says quote unquote, and

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

so you know, we we say, so when we eat? When I'm eating? I said

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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah? It was that?

00:58:04--> 00:58:22

I said hamdulillah. I said what is that? I said we praise to Allah. So why do you say that? Because our messenger Mohammed's love and he said, we should be grateful. So when we eat and we drink, we say Alhamdulillah before we do so we say Bismillah is it what is it this Miller said, this means in the name of God, for we start losing? Isn't that I agree with as good.

00:58:24--> 00:58:37

As we begin to talk day in day out, my my neighbor, my colleague, my co worker, as we begin to talk about life and different things, he starts to see

00:58:38--> 00:58:55

that the principles and the behaviors from the profits allowance them and from a loss is much stronger than his he wants to know what is that book? Who is that man Mohammed Salas in the talking about? And what is this life you call about Islam?

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

In a matter of time, when he compares what he has,

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

when he makes a comparison, anybody that has a quote, clean glass of water, and a dirty glass of water, which one you think he'll drink from?

00:59:08--> 00:59:27

Any human being as a clean glass? There's a dirty glass. But if he has no clean glass, and there's only dirty water, what do you think he will drink, he will drink the dirty water which is in front of him. But when the clean water is put side by side, which one you think he will take? Every time he will take it.

00:59:29--> 00:59:33

But we Muslims, we're not giving them the option.

00:59:35--> 00:59:59

And so for every one person that becomes a Muslim, I tell you that there is another five or six people whose ideas about Islam, core and Mohammed philosophy and Muslims have changed. And they go back to their jobs. They go back to their families, they go back to their school. And when someone says that Mohammed that Muslims worship Mohammed

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

Last time they say, you don't know what you're talking about.

01:00:05--> 01:00:14

When they say that Muslims follow I have a special God called Allah. And they don't like Christians and Jesus, they say You're crazy. You don't know what you're talking about.

01:00:16--> 01:00:21

So the Muslims and their book called The Qur'an, they hate all other people.

01:00:22--> 01:00:28

They say no, that's incorrect. I have read the Quran myself. That's not true. So what have they become?

01:00:29--> 01:00:31

They have become an ally.

01:00:33--> 01:00:35

Most Muslims,

01:00:36--> 01:00:57

they are expecting that if they talk to a non Muslim for a day, or a week, or a year, somehow another you think if they don't become a Muslim, later for him, forget him. He's a Kapha. She's a Kapha. They don't want to listen. Forget them. Yet our Prophet Nur Alayhi, salam,

01:00:59--> 01:01:06

Allah sent him giving down as a prophet, with ye from Allah subhanho wa Taala for 950 years.

01:01:07--> 01:01:12

And he only got a handful of people. But you and I, we want to shake and bake.

01:01:15--> 01:01:22

We give, we give down before and we give it out to somebody for a whole month. That's it. I'm tough. You have no more.

01:01:24--> 01:01:26

I gave him pamphlets. I gave him books.

01:01:28--> 01:01:29

I gave him a tape.

01:01:30--> 01:01:36

I've talked to him for 20 minutes. That's it finished is a Kaffir. I'm talking to many more

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

Muslims.

01:01:39--> 01:01:45

Yet all Muslims, the non Muslims, they don't feel that way about you and your children.

01:01:47--> 01:01:50

If you have cable in your house, you have at least

01:01:52--> 01:01:53

189 channels.

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

And if you have satellite, you have access to 700 channels.

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

And here in Australia, none of those channels belong to Muslims.

01:02:08--> 01:02:17

And through the television more so than anything else. your children, your wives have access to all the filth

01:02:18--> 01:02:21

that they want to put in your home and they never give up.

01:02:23--> 01:02:33

But we Muslims, what do we spend? What do we do? How much time how much commitment do we make? I say to you Muslims, this

01:02:34--> 01:02:40

at the work of one man was this Sheikh Ahmed deedat or use a bucket or Zakir Naik or

01:02:41--> 01:02:48

anyone else? Who is prominent in giving Dawa is not enough. We don't need heroes.

01:02:50--> 01:02:55

Allah subhanaw taala never gave us any orders in the Quran individually, except physical emphasis on

01:02:57--> 01:03:00

all the orders. The last one that gave us in the Quran is always Gemma

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

Aki masala

01:03:04--> 01:03:17

zeca all throughout the Quran in Los Altos genma. Together, united. Because it takes a united effort to do the work that we want to do. The individual effort.

01:03:18--> 01:03:23

It's gone, call it with die. chicama deedat is right now he's in a coma.

01:03:25--> 01:03:26

His work is done.

01:03:28--> 01:03:29

Others will be gone.

01:03:30--> 01:03:46

And while we are fixing our minds upon heroes, personalities, all of us are losing the opportunity to do the work of a loss upon what to Allah, and brothers and sisters. I don't know how many Muslims they are in Australia. But I'll tell you what,

01:03:47--> 01:03:50

if every Muslim in Australia who is an adult,

01:03:51--> 01:03:56

if you gave share if you gave down and you succeeded

01:03:57--> 01:04:00

in making five allies a year

01:04:01--> 01:04:16

and a baby you gave one Shahada every five years? In a matter of 10 years, there will be 8 million people who would be allies, and it'll be 2 million people that would be Muslims.

01:04:17--> 01:04:18

Now you think about that.

01:04:20--> 01:04:25

Just if you gave made a commitment

01:04:26--> 01:04:38

to this dour and what does it mean? You don't have to take a dour course. You don't have to read a lot of pamphlets and booklets. No, you set aside 20 minutes a day.

01:04:39--> 01:04:49

On your job when you sit down to eat lunch with your co workers. Talk to them about life. And through that talk about life. Bring them to the window of Islam.

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

Your neighbor, speak to your neighbor. When you see your neighbor washing his car, go out there and help him ask him

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

Do you need a brush?

01:05:02--> 01:05:04

Do you need a sponge?

01:05:05--> 01:05:07

Do you need a towel? Can I help you out?

01:05:09--> 01:05:15

Anywhere else? You know, that's okay. Why you want to do that? I can do it myself. No, no, we're neighbors, I have to help you.

01:05:16--> 01:05:19

And you do it sincerely. And so what will happen?

01:05:20--> 01:05:24

Just through your offering your help to your neighbor,

01:05:26--> 01:05:29

just to your good word, to your neighbor,

01:05:30--> 01:05:33

asking your neighbor, how's your wife and your children?

01:05:35--> 01:05:38

Can we say our food with you? Can you come and visit us?

01:05:39--> 01:05:41

If you know that your neighbor is sick,

01:05:42--> 01:05:53

you don't see him come out of the house. You see his car in front of his house, he doesn't come out to work, you know, you ask. And his wife says he's ill why you don't go and visit him.

01:05:55--> 01:06:02

or Muslims, your neighbor, your colleague, your co worker, can be tomorrow, while you will harm him.

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

They can become an ally for us.

01:06:07--> 01:06:17

And even if they don't become Muslims, at least they can be people who themselves will say, I know Abdullah. He's a good man.

01:06:19--> 01:06:21

I know his family, they have good clean family.

01:06:23--> 01:06:28

And I know what they believe I don't know much about their religion, but they don't drink.

01:06:29--> 01:06:34

They don't drugs. They never curse. They have very good manners.

01:06:35--> 01:06:46

They are about accomplishment. They are about principle. Every time I meet him, he has good word. He has a good smile. He's always invited me to his house, I never go but he's always invited me.

01:06:47--> 01:07:06

And when I was ill, and my wife was ill, they came to the hospital, they came to visit us. And when my children went to play in his house, the house is always clean. And they don't know how they do it. Every time they're praying five or six times a day, I don't know how they do it.

01:07:09--> 01:07:23

So the Muslim develops a reputation in his neighborhood that he's concerned. But in our neighborhoods, Muslims, our reputation is just the opposite. And Muslims are not concerned about nothing except their own house and their own mosque in their own group.

01:07:25--> 01:07:35

All Muslims, if you ask me as a new Muslim, how can we do the work of dow, I say, through reforming your behavior,

01:07:36--> 01:07:45

reforming your behavior towards your neighbor, your coat your coworker, your colleagues. That's first,

01:07:46--> 01:08:12

when you reform your behavior, understand that Muslims are being watched all the time, not by the government. You're being watched by Allah subhanaw taala. And you're being watched by your neighbors and the other people, and in many cases, what people think about Islam. Did you know that most of what people think about Islam is really what they think about Muslims.

01:08:15--> 01:08:22

So we Muslims, we need to remove ourselves from being an obstruction to Islam.

01:08:23--> 01:08:29

And we need to put ourselves in the place of being a facility for Islam.

01:08:30--> 01:08:46

And if there are 100 Muslims in this room 100 in this room, who will give 30 minutes of their time a week, not a month, not a day, but a week, 30 minutes of their time to think about this issue.

01:08:49--> 01:08:53

Think about this issue, and then apply this issue.

01:08:56--> 01:09:47

And talk about this issue with their children, with their wives, with their family with other Muslims. If there are 100 Muslims who do that, I will guarantee you just here you will make a significant change in how people think about this lamb and what people think about Muslims. And secondly, you will find that among the people in this room here you are representing a greater body of people who are they, your colleagues, your co workers, your neighbors, there are at least 5000 people that are connected to us that's in this room here one way or another 5000 5000 if you change your attitude, you change your demeanor, you change your behavior, we will affect positively a

01:09:47--> 01:09:56

greater number of those 5000 that's our job. We cannot do more than that. And the law doesn't expect more of that from us.

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

or Muslims. Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:10:00--> 01:10:05

is the best judge. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he calls us to reform our behavior.

01:10:06--> 01:10:23

We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he causes us to become a reflection for this Deen We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he put in our hearts our concern for others besides ourselves, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that we Muslims can modify, that we can modify the distinction that we put

01:10:24--> 01:11:02

that we distinctions that we put between ourselves based upon where we come from, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala that we Muslim show some sign of unity and discipline. Outside of the mosque, which we show when we come here to pray, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that the Muslims take the Quran from the shelf, and the Muslims take the Quran, and take it with them, and that the Muslims open the Quran for others to read it. We ask Allah subhanaw taala also that Muslims, that they think to themselves, what obligation that they have for the new Muslims.

01:11:03--> 01:11:24

Because a new Muslim is faced with a big problem. Sometimes the problem a new Muslim has when they become a Muslim is greater than the problem they had before they became Muslims. Because when a person becomes a Muslim Alhamdulillah he becomes saved from one thing.

01:11:25--> 01:11:32

But when it becomes a Muslim, then he comes into a whole nother set of confusion. He has to sift out

01:11:33--> 01:11:36

Islam from the Muslim baggage.

01:11:38--> 01:12:06

He has to find out the difference between what is Islam, and what is the cultural baggage of the Muslims. Secondly, he comes into Islam, from his family, from her husband, from his wife, he comes into Islam. And when it comes into Islam, now the wife of the husband of the family says you are a complete fool.

01:12:09--> 01:12:16

We will never speak to you again. Get out of our house. And what does that person have now?

01:12:18--> 01:12:26

Those Muslims who hug them the night before, who said how great it is for you to be a Muslim. They don't open up their home.

01:12:27--> 01:12:29

They don't open up their pockets.

01:12:30--> 01:12:37

They don't offer these new Muslims anything. So the new Muslim has to go for themselves.

01:12:39--> 01:12:44

And for me, I spent 12 years, the first 12 years of being a Muslim,

01:12:45--> 01:12:49

reading all the books I could find inside the bookstores. And you know what that what happened there?

01:12:53--> 01:12:55

I followed about six or seven different paths.

01:12:57--> 01:13:13

And by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala hamdulillah by His grace of loss upon that he gave me some guidance. But it took 1012 years of traveling all around and reading all the books. And I'd say eight out of 10 books I read was all cultural baggage.

01:13:15--> 01:13:40

But this is what we have to go through. But if the Muslims who are already Muslim, if someone becomes a Muslim in your midst, if you take care of him, or take care of her, take the responsibility that they almost like your family, like they're like your client and you take care of them. Then you will find as people coming to Islam, they will become very strong.

01:13:42--> 01:13:59

There'll be a compliment to your family. There'll be a compliment to your community. And I already told you, that is much easier. It'd be much easier for an Australian born person. When they become a Muslim. It is much easier for them to go and talk to other Australian people

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

much easier.

01:14:03--> 01:14:07

If you want to know how you can accept how you can facilitate Islam.

01:14:09--> 01:14:28

teach our new Muslim, support a new Muslim, embrace a new Muslim, because these new Muslims have a greater capacity, easier facility to spread Islam than those who are born Muslim in other places. This is what we find.

01:14:30--> 01:14:33

All Muslims You are the ambassadors of Islam.

01:14:34--> 01:14:39

Allah will ask you about the responsibility he have placed in your hands.

01:14:41--> 01:14:59

We are the indigenous people. Whether from America or from the UK or from Australia, the indigenous people. Allah will give us the responsibility of taking the Islam to our families and other indigenous people. You cannot do it without us and we cannot do it without you.

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

If we will unite our resources together, you will see there is no group of Muslims in the whole world who have an opportunity like we have in the Western world.

01:15:14--> 01:15:25

I don't know another group of Muslims that have the freedom to speak, to act, to live, to own to organize, to teach

01:15:27--> 01:15:32

with the resources, like we have, that Allah has given to us, and he has said no Quran.

01:15:33--> 01:15:43

Woman merasakan now home, Yun Fei Hoon, he will hold you responsible for what he has given you. wakulla County has never stopped with lolly welcome. Allah

01:15:46--> 01:15:53

subhanaw taala shadow Allah, Allah, Allah and want to start from Kona to Bullock a question came said

01:15:54--> 01:16:11

it's not an excuse, but how can we as Muslims stand for ourselves among all of this media and publicity attack? You know, I say to the Muslims, that if you watch TV, if you sit and you watch a couple of hours of AlJazeera every day, that's your fault.

01:16:13--> 01:16:14

It's your fault.

01:16:16--> 01:16:18

Because they make their money,

01:16:19--> 01:16:20

showing us bad pictures.

01:16:22--> 01:16:29

Hardly any good pictures about Muslims even when Muslims have TV, because the money is in bad media.

01:16:31--> 01:16:37

So we Muslims have to find a way to develop media that will give us inspiration.

01:16:38--> 01:16:50

media that will provide us with education, media that will provide us with explanations, mediums that provide our children with edutainment, meaning

01:16:51--> 01:16:55

that which educates them and entertains them at the same time.

01:16:57--> 01:17:07

So if you don't spend your time or your money or make a sacrifice for an alternative, then we have what is given to us.

01:17:08--> 01:17:09

The second thing is

01:17:10--> 01:17:47

we cannot say that we cannot say that Muslims are simply being bombarded with bad media. No, that's true. But the very fact that the brother made this announcement today means we have there is somebody even within government who says you Muslims deserve the opportunity to have your own platform. Now, if you don't take the opportunity to have your own platform, then whose fault is it that you and your children and we and our children are bombarded by the people who take advantage of the platform.

01:17:49--> 01:18:14

Sister says I'm a new Muslim who came to Islam through your DVDs I feel strongly to do a video of why we women wear hijab, while sister inshallah I will say this to you, if you will contact us while we are here through one Islam through the Imam or through our check his smile, we will see to it that your interest to do

01:18:16--> 01:18:26

a documentary or a interview about the importance of hijab inshallah sister we see to it that the platform is made available for you to do that in sha Allah, may Allah reward you for that

01:18:27--> 01:18:33

assistance, she said please explain some types of cultural baggage. cultural baggage.

01:18:37--> 01:18:48

cultural baggage means the habits, the traditions that Muslims bring from their country, which has nothing to do with Islam at all.

01:18:49--> 01:19:23

cultural baggage, the Arabs have their cultural baggage, the Africans have their cultural baggage. The people in the indo Pakistan continent, they have their cultural baggage. The people in Indonesia, South Africa, Malaysia, they have their cultural baggage, and what is the cultural baggage? It is the traditions which those people have developed alongside of Islam. And so when you go to those countries, you find in many cases, Muslims doing the same thing that Hindus do.

01:19:24--> 01:19:44

In their weddings, in their celebrations, you see them doing the same things, which has nothing to do with Islam. But when they come to this country or another country and you go to their wedding, you find the customs have nothing to do with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam it is cultural baggage.

01:19:48--> 01:19:58

Muslims who come from one particular place and because of the dress they wear, a new Muslim becomes a Muslim they say you have to wear this. This is cultural baggage.

01:20:00--> 01:20:19

A lady became Muslim. The other day from Perth. She said she had been reading the Quran for two years, wanting to be a Muslim for two years, but some sisters told her unless she wore all the clothes and cover herself she cannot be a Muslim.

01:20:21--> 01:20:25

So when she became a Muslim, she said, What if I had died?

01:20:27--> 01:20:28

What if I had died?

01:20:30--> 01:20:31

This cultural baggage.

01:20:34--> 01:20:44

So Muslims have to be careful that what we offer to other people is only from the Quran and only from the Sunnah, not from their culture.

01:20:46--> 01:21:24

Or you should tell people, this is something we do in our country. And it's not against the Quran, but it is something we do. So I just want to be honest with you, this is not the son of the prophet SAW Sam, you don't have to do it. You don't have to wear poofy if you don't want to. You don't have to do this or that if you don't want to, it's better for you. If you do, I think it's better if you do, it will help you to be identified or whatever. But you don't have to the first thing change your manners. change your behavior. believe in Allah subhanaw taala accept the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and read from the Quran and from the Sunnah

01:21:25--> 01:21:32

assistant said, when you talk to non Muslims about Islam, what do we do when they react badly or negatively? You Be patient.

01:21:33--> 01:21:39

You'll be patient. That's all. Everybody's not going to jump up and down and clap because you give them down.

01:21:40--> 01:21:57

Everybody's not going to agree with you. Allah said prophets and messengers who gave down we're better than you and I, and the people spit on them, throw rocks at them, persecute them, kill their followers, put them in prison. You and I, nobody's putting us in prison here.

01:21:58--> 01:22:06

Hardly anyone is going to spit at you just because you talk to them. throw rocks at you know, you be patient with them. smile at them.

01:22:07--> 01:22:14

Talk to them another day. And don't return back to them. But they say Be patient.

01:22:16--> 01:22:23

Because when the profits last them passed by some people, and they said to him Somali

01:22:24--> 01:22:25

death to be upon you.

01:22:27--> 01:22:32

And Asia delana was with the profits last year. She was very spirited woman.

01:22:34--> 01:22:39

And she said and death be on you and your family and your tribe.

01:22:43--> 01:22:45

And the prophets have lost them said Oh,

01:22:46--> 01:22:47

don't say that.

01:22:50--> 01:22:57

Just say to them symbolic. I'm just say to them what alikoum and on you.

01:22:58--> 01:23:02

If you want to say something, say that. But don't say what they say.

01:23:03--> 01:23:06

don't return back to them that kind of greeting.

01:23:07--> 01:23:13

Here the Prophet Sawsan has given Asia or delana. a lesson in patience.

01:23:14--> 01:23:21

Because the prophets lost to them was that kind of man, that he used to suffer the indignation of others the insult of others

01:23:23--> 01:23:27

to get the opportunity that one day he could visit them, talk with them.

01:23:29--> 01:23:39

Like the man who used to come by the House of the prophet SAW him every day. And he keeps his trash until he passed by the prophet SAW some house and dump the trash in front of his door.

01:23:40--> 01:23:52

And one of the companions one day was sitting with the prophets last name and that man did that. And they got up to slap him. And the Prophet said, No, leave him. Just clean the treasure.

01:23:54--> 01:24:23

So one day, that man he didn't come to the province awesomes house and he asked where's that man? He said he's sick. Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu was set up. Right away. The prophet SAW him get up and move to his house, knock on the door. His wife came to the door. He said I'd like to see your husband. She went inside she said Mohammed is here to see you. So a lot of them. He said Let him in. When the promises him came in. He said How are you?

01:24:24--> 01:24:29

I'm missing you. The man said why you come and see me. You don't know I don't like you.

01:24:32--> 01:24:33

You don't know I'm your enemy.

01:24:34--> 01:24:45

The process them said yes, I know that. But you also my neighbor. And Allah subhanaw taala told us we have to be concerned about the neighbor so I came to visit you for that reason.

01:24:46--> 01:24:47

That man

01:24:48--> 01:24:49

became a Muslim.

01:24:51--> 01:24:56

And in the Battle of the trench, he fought beside the prophets a lot of asylum

01:24:59--> 01:25:00

system

01:25:00--> 01:25:15

Have the profits lost? we Muslims? We don't have no patience. We think that because we have good answer, because we're good people that people are supposed to listen to us, except from us now be patient, and time they will change

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

says when our non Muslim colleagues invite us to a party in their homes where drinking is done. Are we supposed to go given that?

01:25:28--> 01:25:33

These are because we're supposed to accept the invitation? No, I tell you, you have to use your own discretion.

01:25:34--> 01:25:39

I have family members, they drink. They listen to music.

01:25:41--> 01:25:59

If they invite me to come to their house, what should I say? No, no, no, I'm not I can't come to your house. Because you people drink. Because it's your Thanksgiving, you got a turkey on the table? Because you got a Christmas tree in the living room. Because there's a birthday party, I cannot come. So when can I come then?

01:26:00--> 01:26:07

No, I use my discretion. I say if they're drinking over there in that room over there, I go sit in that room over there.

01:26:10--> 01:26:25

If they're sitting around the table, and there's wine or alcohol on the table, I will tell them, or you can serve me over I don't mind to sit over here. They said why No, no, I'm sorry. I got don't sit at the table with this alcohol. I don't prefer to do that. I don't know why we take the alcohol away.

01:26:28--> 01:26:59

Because once you tolerate them, they will start to respect you. But if you don't tolerate them, you don't visit them. You are so righteous, you can only that you want them to come into your house. But you can never come into their house. You want them to come to the masjid. But you cannot go to the church. You think about it Muslims. How many of you ever been to a church? Or you say I was tough? A lot of the hardest say he asked us to go to the church.

01:27:01--> 01:27:15

I didn't say go to the church and worship with them. I said, Go then sit with him. If they invite you sit with him, and then they will ask you what you think. Tell him say I'd like to tell you what I think they will give you a chance to talk.

01:27:17--> 01:27:26

And I always tell the story, how five churches came together invite me to talk to them. And so there's 380 of them in a church, big church.

01:27:28--> 01:27:51

And once the minister he saw that I got them to agree that there's not much difference between the East side and the mme and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Not much difference between Qur'an and what Allah sent his profits as a Muslim with and that we all have to believe in the monotheism. And Ibrahima lays them, and as they start to agree in with me, he said, holy,

01:27:52--> 01:27:54

I think the time is up.

01:27:56--> 01:28:19

I think Thank you very much, Mr. Yaseen. I think your time is up for today. And we will invite you back another time. So the people they said, Wait a minute, we want to hear more. So he said, okay, you can go downstairs in the basement. There's another area down there. So 140 people come down in the basement. And we talked for another two hours

01:28:20--> 01:28:26

96 of those people when I asked him, Do you bear witness, there's nothing to be worship except the law. They said yes.

01:28:28--> 01:28:36

And what I told you about this man, Mohammed's last name, is he different from a cyber Monday? Um, is he a prophet of God? They say yes. Don't tell the preacher

01:28:41--> 01:28:45

inside inside their church.

01:28:50--> 01:28:54

But we Muslims, we saw righteous, we saw Muslim,

01:28:56--> 01:29:10

we don't go to them. We can sit in their houses, but they can sit in ours. We can't go to the church, but they can come to the mosque. Just think about it Muslims. You think it's a one way street.

01:29:11--> 01:29:13

It's not a one way street.

01:29:14--> 01:29:16

You have to give.

01:29:17--> 01:29:27

They got to give. So it's give and take everybody have to give and take is a two way street. On top, you're not better than him. And when he entered Jerusalem,

01:29:28--> 01:29:29

as a victor,

01:29:31--> 01:29:36

the one country as a ruler, what did he do? He purposely went to the church.

01:29:37--> 01:29:59

And he faced in a direction other than whether it was the idols of the process was that he prayed there to show them that their places are also sacred in the sight of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, because Allah mentioned in the Quran, and in the verse where he mentioned, he mentioned the churches and synagogues and the mosques in that order, church.

01:30:00--> 01:30:10

synagogue, mosque, and other places where the name of Allah is mentioned. So it means their places have legitimacy. Although we don't go there for a better.

01:30:11--> 01:30:20

I don't go to the church for a better. But if they give me the opportunity to talk to them inside the church, I'd rather talk to them inside the church, that it talks to them anywhere else.

01:30:21--> 01:30:44

So we Muslims, we have to think about it, especially the non Muslims. I mean, the new Muslims, if you get the opportunity to go talk to your family members, and you tell them, I can't come sit down with you because you're drinking alcohol. I can't come to the birthday party. I can't come to the Thanksgiving dinner. I can't come to the Christmas dinner. I can't do this. I can't do that. So what can you do with your family members now?

01:30:46--> 01:30:54

You took you change your clothes, you change your name. You cut yourself off from them. So what do you want them to think?

01:30:55--> 01:31:06

No, we can do that. We have to open our doors. And we have to accept the invitation the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he was poisoned. When

01:31:07--> 01:31:09

was he poisoned in the Muslims house?

01:31:12--> 01:31:16

Jewish have the prophecies also go to a Jewish person house?

01:31:17--> 01:31:20

Did he asked a Jewish lady is this meet the Hillel.

01:31:22--> 01:31:27

deal he asked her but we Muslims. You come to my house. And you asked me brother, it just means Allah

01:31:30--> 01:31:31

Subhana Allah.

01:31:34--> 01:31:39

No, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He kept his door open.

01:31:40--> 01:31:59

And he also got up and he went to the invitations. And I remind you in Mecca before Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the order prohibiting the alcohol. The Messenger of Allah salado sent me to sit with some of his companions. And he did not like it. They were drinking.

01:32:01--> 01:32:04

But he led them. He didn't like it. He frowned on it.

01:32:06--> 01:32:07

He used to sit away from them.

01:32:09--> 01:32:14

But he sat with them because if he was to just sit away from them,

01:32:15--> 01:32:41

isolate himself, how he will mix with them, how He will teach them how they will learn from him. We Muslims, we cannot isolate ourselves from the rest of the people just because we have better habits or better knowledge than them. No. We have to tolerate them to a certain degree. And as you mix with those people you'll find out after a while they say wait a minute those smoke a cigarette he Abdullah he don't like that.

01:32:42--> 01:32:44

Don't Don't curse, you know? Absolutely Don't curse.

01:32:46--> 01:32:50

No, no, no, no, no. We can serve no abdulah come to our house. No, Paul.

01:32:52--> 01:32:59

We everything is Abdul. I went bought from the store down the street. Hello, I bought the meters. Hello, Abdullah.

01:33:00--> 01:33:24

They will start to make the concessions for us. Because they respect us because we mixed with them. But if we don't mix with him, we don't tolerate them. Why should they make concessions for us? Look with the brother said the country took the tax money. tax dollars. How do you think the non Muslim feel about that? That they give some of the tax dollars to the Muslims to spread Islam

01:33:25--> 01:33:26

to Panama?

01:33:27--> 01:33:31

The sister says I'm reading most from the sisters first because they usually get the less

01:33:33--> 01:33:45

said with reference to interfaith dialogue. What in your opinion? should we do? I don't to be honest SR I don't participate much in this whole thing about interfaith?

01:33:46--> 01:33:55

No, I don't mix with them for them to teach me about their faith. And me give them a little about their faith and just sit down and have some cookies and and the t

01:33:57--> 01:34:01

know if they give me opportunity to explain about Islam I go

01:34:02--> 01:34:04

because already I know about the religion.

01:34:06--> 01:34:15

So the Prophet says that he did not sit with them, for them to teach him about the religion. And then he teach them something and they Pat each other on the back is when they eat some cookies and

01:34:16--> 01:34:22

No, no. Our position is that we have the danine

01:34:23--> 01:34:26

we have tauheed we have risala

01:34:27--> 01:34:37

we have Sharia, we have it and we will tolerate to listen to them but we listen to them in order to get the chance to give them the proper DeLeon.

01:34:38--> 01:35:00

But if the basis of us coming together is to share each other's faith. This is another issue for me. My opinion is I don't want to sit with the people as if we just put Islam and Christianity and Buddhism and Hinduism and Taoism and this and that and feminism and homosexual ism and that song and just spread it around and listen to everybody around

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

The room.

01:35:01--> 01:35:15

No, we come with a specific purpose, that we are Muslims. And we are representing the prophets allows them the final messenger with the final revelation and the deen of Allah subhana wa Taala. And we want to explain our position.

01:35:17--> 01:35:44

That's what we that's, that's what I do. I don't sit with the people to sit around the room and make it appear as if all of that is legitimate. This is called Washington at the end the ship, he will know what that means, what he did at the end, to create the idea in the minds of people that all the religions, if we respect them can become one. No losses in Edina and the law of Islam.

01:35:45--> 01:36:15

We so we don't believe in this whole idea of bringing together all the religions trying to make them one No, we tolerate everyone, in order to get the opportunity to give them the proofs and giving them evidences in a law he knows the best in the shot law says how do we differentiate the pots in the English translation of Quran that say not to take Christians, Jews as friends, this is earlier, it doesn't mean that you don't have relationship with them. The prophet SAW said he did business with Jews and Christians didn't he?

01:36:16--> 01:36:23

let's not take him for what's ahead. Friendship here means taking them into your intimacy, using them as a delille.

01:36:24--> 01:36:26

using them as a waqia.

01:36:27--> 01:36:30

Taking them into your intimacy, taking their advice

01:36:32--> 01:36:33

on religious matters,

01:36:35--> 01:37:06

dressing like them acting like them, and what it means dressing like them means purposely dressing like them out of their desires of their dressing designs. No, we don't take them as friends and protect us in this way. But it does not mean that we don't do business with them. It doesn't mean we don't smile with them, doesn't mean we don't be nice to them. This is not to the court and means for if that was the case, I remind you that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, he had a debt with a Jew.

01:37:10--> 01:37:29

And there was an occasion when a Jew came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in his mosque, demanding his money for a debt, which means what the prophet SAW last time he was taking a loan and doing business from Christians and Jews and Medina.

01:37:30--> 01:37:57

And he was honoring that. So they was he was doing that to show that we can do business with anybody. We can interact with anybody. We can live among anybody. We can be gentle and kind towards anybody. We can smile and have good behavior towards anybody. We can shake the hands of anyone we can deal with anyone we can sit with them we can talk with them, we can eat with them, and for us men even we can marry them

01:37:59--> 01:38:03

because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he had a wife from whom

01:38:04--> 01:38:33

Jewish and in a white from home from Masada show they became Muslims, but the prophet SAW some shores this example. So we Muslims we cannot be isolationist. And when the last one was out I said don't take the Christians and Jews as friends and protectors it means don't take them into our intimacy using them as our advisors using as our models using our guides and for them to be showing us and pattering for us to wait to live alone He knows the best

01:38:35--> 01:38:41

says it has been said that it is haram to have dinner at a table where alcohol is served I think I entered that already

01:38:44--> 01:38:57

says please explain some types of okay enter that already. So now the sisters they cannot blame me because I answered all the questions they sent so far. So now I will answer some of the questions to the best of my ability.

01:38:59--> 01:39:02

Brother This is okay especially for you inshallah He

01:39:03--> 01:39:06

will answer some of the questions from the brothers now. So the sisters they cannot complain.

01:39:14--> 01:39:29

Says I strongly agree with the necessity of dow but I don't have the skill. How do I achieve this? I mentioned to you in sha Allah first deal with the simple things don't take the skill is in the column.

01:39:31--> 01:39:32

Now the skill,

01:39:33--> 01:39:35

maybe somebody else is the best talker.

01:39:36--> 01:39:39

What you do is you provide maybe the environment.

01:39:41--> 01:39:45

You provide the environment, the brothers who who are part of the Jamaat probably

01:39:47--> 01:39:59

didn't know about that. Somebody maybe he's the rug but another brother, he's the move to kill them. Another brother, he acts as the Amir. So if you got a little group of brothers that do that, well maybe you'd have to move to Canada. You don't talk well.

01:40:00--> 01:40:16

You don't have good English, you didn't read the books, you don't know the techniques. Okay? Then you be the facilitator. You drive the brothers around, you will get the same rewards they get you sit and you listen, another brother, he just said, he listened and what do you think they could say something about look is better I hear

01:40:17--> 01:40:33

my brother his look sooner didn't tell him to sit over here. So you have one brother, he, he resolves for another one, he drives another one he speaks, everybody can do something, come and ask this brother here. What can we do to utilize this 35,000?

01:40:34--> 01:40:44

Ask, can we set up a classroom? Can we set up a press? Can we deliver that to one Islam so they can make some programs? What can we do?

01:40:46--> 01:40:58

And you will find that if you take the time and you sit with people and talk, you will find something to do inshallah. So what is the proper approach to give Dawa to those that have been

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

assimilated?

01:41:02--> 01:41:09

I don't know exactly what you mean by those who have been assimilated. Maybe you mean Muslims who have been assimilated? We don't give Dawa to Muslims.

01:41:11--> 01:41:13

Tao is to non Muslims.

01:41:14--> 01:42:01

We give tarbiyah to Muslims. We give naseeha to Muslims. We give guidance, earshot to Muslims. We don't extend to Muslims. We don't call Muslims to Eman. Muslims already have Eman. Even if the man is weak, they already have kalama La ilaha illAllah. We call the people who themselves they don't have the kenema we call them this is what classically Tao means. When the prophet SAW last him sent his companions out to some people in the case of wives Abdul jevin, rajala, yellow Iman, he sent him to the Yemen. He didn't send them to the Yemen, to those people who was over the Muslims in the Yemen, he sent into the people who was non Muslims. What Allah told us took call to the way of your

01:42:01--> 01:42:23

Lord, he didn't mean call Muslims to the way of the Lord. He means called the non Muslims is what it means classically. But if you mean going to talk to Muslims who themselves who have fallen off the path, give them naseeha educate them, inspire them, advise them, guide them, teach them, this is what we do for Muslims.

01:42:25--> 01:42:43

More supanova Okay, I think there's an answer from the brothers said, When would The Wrath of Allah Come on the non Muslims as leaders in the work? Almost although I'm sorry? What should the Muslim organizations in Australia do

01:42:44--> 01:42:56

about this? Okay, I guess Angeles in general is shall love what I understand this question to be just says, When would The Wrath of Allah come on to the non Muslims as leaders.

01:42:58--> 01:43:15

Of course, I say to the brothers and sisters this that the leaders are always more responsible than the followers. But at the same token, we cannot just blame the leaders and say, the leaders of the Muslim countries this, and the leaders of the mosque this in most cases, Allah gives you the leaders that you deserve.

01:43:18--> 01:43:33

If we see something wrong in our leaders, we go and talk to them ourselves if we can, and you cannot blame them, you don't have any tyrants. One thing about the leaders that's in Australia, and the leaders in America and the leaders as in the UK, they're not tyrants

01:43:35--> 01:43:37

because they're not representing the government.

01:43:38--> 01:43:41

If we don't want to listen to them, you know, what we do have to disallow we just don't listen.

01:43:44--> 01:43:55

So how much blame Can you make for the Muslim leaders, if you yourself, don't advise them, and if you yourself, don't support them, support the leader, how you can support him.

01:43:57--> 01:44:04

You advise him, the prophet SAW Sam said, when a law wants good for a leader, he gives him people that

01:44:06--> 01:44:26

if he wants to do something good, they support him. And if he does something other than that, they advise him. And if he wants something for him, other than that, he gives them people that when he wants to do something good day, don't help him. And when he does something other than that day, don't wake him up. They don't advise him.

01:44:27--> 01:44:31

So we cannot blame the leaders. We have to support them, advise them.

01:44:33--> 01:44:34

Be present with them.

01:44:40--> 01:44:47

Someone says What I don't understand is how is it? Islam is there in India, only to learn?

01:44:51--> 01:44:53

Maybe you can tell me what that means.

01:44:55--> 01:44:59

Well, if that's what it means. I'll tell you a last panel and that is what Bill must have

01:45:00--> 01:45:14

Mr. Bane allows a lot of the to Eastern to Western means that he's the lord of every place and point on this earth. And a velocity panel with Allah only intended for Islam to be in India, then probably all of us should be in India.

01:45:15--> 01:45:38

Now, Islam is where you are, and the knowledge is where you are, and there are knowledgeable people every place, you should take advantage of the knowledgeable people where you are. Because it is the responsibility of a person seeking knowledge, to seek all of the knowledge he can where he is, or where she is before they move and go some other place.

01:45:40--> 01:45:49

When you cannot obtain a certain piece of knowledge, you can go anywhere to get it said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, most of us

01:45:50--> 01:45:58

most of us have available to us knowledge right where we are. But we don't particularly like who gives it to us.

01:46:00--> 01:46:04

So if I'm from India, I don't want to learn from an Arab.

01:46:05--> 01:46:08

If I'm from Arab, I don't want to learn from a Pakistani.

01:46:10--> 01:46:27

If I'm an African, I don't want to learn from an atom. So this is something different. Allah subhanho wa Taala, he has put knowledgeable people odema and fuqaha. In every place. If you go to Scandinavia, there is Ireland there.

01:46:29--> 01:46:31

You go to Germany, there is an island there.

01:46:32--> 01:47:02

Every place that has onomah and fuqaha. Maybe they are not of the nationality you like, maybe they're not the persuasion would you like but knowledge is not like that. We don't put the knowledge we don't put the we don't put the country, we don't put the ethnicity. We don't even put the name of the person before the knowledge. If it's not as rich we seeking, we go to a person and we want to know what knowledge it is they have. And we seek to serve to secure that knowledge. And that is the most important for us.

01:47:08--> 01:47:18

person said Would the attempt to establish institutions such as Islamic banking, be considered

01:47:19--> 01:47:38

an approach to doubt? Well, no, I don't think I think that for Muslims to look into the issue of Islamic banking is just to improve their social and their social and economic situation here that be based more upon halau sources. But this is not an issue i don't think directly about.

01:47:39--> 01:47:48

It says is there any opportunity for you to lecture on the Gold Coast, I don't know where the Gold Coast is. But if it's in Australia, I don't mind to go there and show

01:47:56--> 01:47:59

it for me, the goal is that we place this opportunity to give Dallas

01:48:01--> 01:48:18

some money alaikum What made you revert to Islam from Christianity at hamdulillah? Me, you grow in strength. All I can say the brother who wrote this as a I don't have a special story, to be honest with you. In 1965,

01:48:20--> 01:48:32

I had the opportunity to be exposed to a Muslim who sat me down and explained some issues to me. I was already believing in God. But I was very confused.

01:48:33--> 01:49:18

And this person sat me down and gave me the opportunity and in two hour period of time. So panela I never heard anybody to answer questions like that. And I became a Muslim hamdulillah that's i can i can't i can't say more than that. Because there's no real drama attached to it. I think the last one for that opportunity. What about the ability Gemma? Are they doing a good job hamdulillah all the different groups of Muslims are doing a special job. And so I began, I began my initial work and exposure with this group of brothers hamdulillah my teacher was from this group of brothers. I've been to rye when I did my chiller there, for those of you who know what that is hamdulillah so what

01:49:18--> 01:49:35

can I say? But I can say this, they had something which I benefited from, but there was other things they did not have which the last one Delta he let me get from other places. So I say to Muslims, get the knowledge wherever you can get it from. And then after you obtain it,

01:49:37--> 01:49:59

say what is good or keep quiet. So that's all I can say hamdulillah May Allah bless those brothers in the work which they are doing. And that part of it we don't agree with we don't agree, but we respectfully disagree. And and if you cannot get knowledge from one place, get it from another place. If you find better knowledge in which they have get that knowledge from the better place but don't speak bad about Muslims.

01:50:00--> 01:50:02

And don't make the judgments in sha Allah.

01:50:05--> 01:50:11

So one thing is to invite to Islam to reverse the situation. My question is, should we kill our rulers?

01:50:16--> 01:50:21

This is a very fundamental question. In spite of the fact, this is probably from a young man.

01:50:23--> 01:50:28

This is probably from a young man. And the old man told me, You show me a young man, I'll show you a fool.

01:50:30--> 01:50:48

That's not a fool who wrote the question. But it's obviously a person who is immature, a person that is angry, a person that is a reactionary, a person who thinks that the only way that we can change something, maybe we kill the unbelievers, or we kill the rulers? Well, if we kill all the rulers who will rule in their place?

01:50:49--> 01:51:02

You ask yourself the question. If we go on, we kill all the Muslim rulers who you think are tyrants? Who will rule in their place? The same people who will kill them will want to rule in their place.

01:51:04--> 01:51:06

And what will they do?

01:51:07--> 01:51:11

They will do most of what those rulers are doing.

01:51:12--> 01:51:21

Because the issue here is not that if you had the chance to do to sit in their place, you're going to do something different. No, it's not necessarily so.

01:51:23--> 01:51:37

No, our position is that we don't kill the rulers. That's not what the son of the Prophet system teaches us. A man came to the prophet SAW Some said yellow pseudo losses in our mmm is a facet. Should we throw him out?

01:51:38--> 01:52:08

Should we pray behind him? process him said No, you cannot throw him out. You must pray behind him. Prayer is incumbent behind every Imam, whether he's good, he's bad. Pray behind him. For if the prayer if, if he's bad than the prayer is for you and against him. But if he's good than the prayers for you and for him, and our position with the with the rulers, is that the prophet SAW Selim said, if they beat your backs and take your property, you don't rebel.

01:52:10--> 01:52:19

You Be patient, because the time will come when a law will remove them and give you opportunity. But if we kill every rule that we don't like, what will that will be our case

01:52:20--> 01:52:27

will just keep killing, there'll be a complete cycle of killing. And there's a group of Muslims who did that.

01:52:29--> 01:52:32

When they saw a leader that they disagree with, they kill him.

01:52:33--> 01:52:37

And so when they get to opposition, somebody killed them.

01:52:38--> 01:53:12

And so we just keep the cycle of chilling, throwing, rebelling. So then where will the loyalty come? What are the discipline come? Where's the respect come? And let me remind the Muslims about this issue. One more thing, because I think it's very important that we know the young people, they don't get so angry. You see at non Muslims or at Muslim rulers who they don't like, in 1924 when the Philadelphia was destroyed, let me remind the Muslims, that it was not just the non Muslims, who destroyed the caliphate, it was Muslims.

01:53:14--> 01:53:19

And let me also remind you, that the khilafah by itself is not a panacea.

01:53:20--> 01:53:28

Just because we say [???] becomes a lever up the Khalifa for us, does that guarantee what he will do?

01:53:29--> 01:53:33

Because in 1924, we had khilafah, what kind of man he was, what kind of khilafah he was,

01:53:35--> 01:53:53

no guarantee, we want khilafah we should think about it, we should plan for it. We should work for it. We have a right to pray and work and think about it. But this is not the end of Islam. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala we have to build this Islam upon hour

01:53:54--> 01:54:09

upon our Amen, upon our responsibility. And if we don't love each other, and we don't have loyalty for each other, and we're not in obedience to the leaders of the Muslims today, how we think we're going to be in obedience to the philosopher.

01:54:10--> 01:54:42

No young Muslims. Be very careful inshallah, that you are not drawn into a situation because of your anger and your impatience. Because maybe you will set a fire, you will set a fire that itself will cause some destruction for the Muslims. No, you Be patient in sha Allah. If Allah wants to replace the leaders who are tyrants, he will replace them and if inshallah if you are supposed to replace them, He will give you the tough one, he will give you the knowledge and he will put you in that place inshallah to replace them in sha Allah

01:54:56--> 01:54:59

doing all the things that you and I do and

01:55:00--> 01:55:05

Knight standing in prayer for four or five hours at a time

01:55:07--> 01:55:11

and in the day, fighting the battles,

01:55:12--> 01:55:14

discharging the armies.

01:55:15--> 01:55:31

Giving the firemen the rulings explaining the Qur'an instructing the people in behavior. How could a man do all of that? and stand four or five hours at night at one time?

01:55:33--> 01:55:35

What kind of human being could that be?

01:55:43--> 01:55:51

Let me tell you. After Christopher Columbus came back, and claimed that land for King Ferdinand and Isabella,

01:55:52--> 01:55:54

they sent more ships.

01:55:57--> 01:55:59

Within 150 years.

01:56:01--> 01:56:13

They destabilize massacred, killed, liquidated, eliminated 89 million native Indians as they call them,

01:56:14--> 01:56:17

to take control of what they call the new world.

01:56:18--> 01:56:22

So we got 56 and we got 89. You keep adding for me, please? How many?

01:56:26--> 01:56:31

487 million

01:56:32--> 01:56:53

at half a billion people. They never defined any of these actions in these barbaric tragic intrusions, criminal occupations, destabilization, murder and protracted climbs on humanity. They never called it, what?

01:56:54--> 01:56:55

terrorism.

01:57:04--> 01:57:05

It's unbelievable

01:57:07--> 01:57:09

how a concept

01:57:10--> 01:57:14

could be forced on the world with their eyes wide open.

01:57:16--> 01:57:39

And all the lives all the time that people go to church, read the Bible, talk to their priests, their leaders themselves around the dinner table, prayed to God with their eyes open or close and don't understand the trilogy. And they accepted that it's simply a mystery that cannot be explained.

01:57:43--> 01:57:51

Islamic position regarding that is that generally, generally, the role of men

01:57:52--> 01:57:53

is to protect,

01:57:55--> 01:58:09

generally, to represent to protect outwardly, just like you have never in history, heard of an army army, a country going to war against another country and they sent a female regiment.

01:58:11--> 01:58:12

It has never happened.

01:58:13--> 01:58:19

There's a reason for that. With all the liberation is going on. America didn't say no female residents

01:58:20--> 01:58:27

because generally speaking, answering the lady's question they are equal in front of God but they're not the same.

01:58:28--> 01:58:30

You see if a law rat ran across you right now

01:58:39--> 01:58:40

it was a man who

01:58:45--> 01:58:51

is right wrong. And they just got fitted pray in the morning prayer. They start planning the bank robbery

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

or a call up the lady or the lady call up the man they want to meet together. So I said well, we meet

01:58:59--> 01:58:59

for lunch.

01:59:04--> 01:59:08

But sister Well, before we go have this meeting that we don't have, let's pray.

01:59:10--> 01:59:16

So can we pray? So then we had a meeting together. So where are we going from here? What was your house miles?

01:59:19--> 01:59:25

So we put afternoon presser where we gonna meet at your house. So here's what we're gonna do. We take a little drink and we start skipping smooches

01:59:27--> 01:59:28

after sunset prep.

01:59:30--> 01:59:32

Nice Not gonna happen.

01:59:33--> 01:59:38

So the whole issue of the prayer, the prophet the Quran says in the salata, 10

01:59:39--> 01:59:49

and fascia women cover this correct. Verily, the prayer is a preventive deterrent against human tendencies towards doing what's wrong.

01:59:54--> 01:59:59

And one day, she wake up, and she puts on niqab

02:00:02--> 02:00:06

And she puts her full clothes on. No more lipstick.

02:00:07--> 02:00:08

No more perfume.

02:00:10--> 02:00:23

She doesn't talk to the men. She's not working anymore because she understands to keep her higher, to keep herself. She stays home and take care of her home and her husband says, What's happened to you?

02:00:26--> 02:00:42

She says yesterday I read an ayah in the Quran. I read the Hadith from the prophets on the loudest. And it made me cry to think about my religion and I'm not doing that no more. And so he said, then I don't want you. You have become extreme.

02:00:43--> 02:00:45

So she has now become stranger.

02:00:46--> 02:00:52

hamdulillah if he leaves her, we asked a lot to give her another stranger.

02:00:58--> 02:01:01

The Muslim neighbor, the Muslim coworker,

02:01:03--> 02:01:05

the Muslim colleague.

02:01:06--> 02:01:18

They are the ones that are blocking the way for people understanding Islam. Because people are getting confused. They are confusing Muslims with Islam.

02:01:21--> 02:01:28

And part of us uncovering the treasure sometimes means moving Muslims out of the way.

02:01:30--> 02:01:37

Now that the treasure is open and plain and clear and uncovered for anyone to see

02:01:40--> 02:01:41

I ask

02:01:43--> 02:01:45

Are there any non Muslims here

02:01:47--> 02:01:47

tonight

02:01:48--> 02:01:51

that would like to inherit this treasure.

02:02:27--> 02:03:17
