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

productions.

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

Miller, you're off

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

me.

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

All the praise is for Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

And we seek His protection

00:04:30--> 00:04:34

from home and from causing harm

00:04:35--> 00:04:39

from deception and from being deceived.

00:04:41--> 00:04:46

We asked his protection from the secret plots of the men and the jinn.

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

And we ask for his guidance

00:04:51--> 00:04:54

and for the sincerity of our words and our intentions.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

We ask Allah subhana wa Taala that he allow our comments

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

To be understood within the context of good advice to all human beings,

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

and that he permit our words to enter the hearts of whom He wills as an arrow

00:05:14--> 00:05:18

without being distorted and without being misconstrued.

00:05:19--> 00:05:40

And finally, we pray that our assessment and conclusions will serve as a medicine and a diagnosis that will help us to adopt a treatment plan that will address and restore the dignity and the well being of all the human beings. We asked him to pan over to Allah, that our advice this evening be a contribution

00:05:43--> 00:05:50

towards and viable proposition and solution for world peace.

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

All the praises for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:57--> 00:06:04

who is the Originator of the heavens and the earth, and have placed there in balanced environment,

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

all the praises for Allah subhanho wa Taala who has revealed, sent down the book

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

Al Quran

00:06:16--> 00:06:23

to his servant Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and did not allow in it any crookedness.

00:06:25--> 00:06:37

All the praises of for Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has given the human beings prophets alayhi wa sallam, and messengers alaimo salam to provide

00:06:38--> 00:06:44

those human beings with illustrations for social conduct and morality.

00:06:46--> 00:06:54

All the praises of for the creator Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has great grip who has granted the human beings intellect

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

and superior faculties

00:06:59--> 00:07:13

that enable them the human beings to govern other creatures. For without those faculties that human beings without to have the weight, nor the means to govern the earth, its environment or its creatures.

00:07:14--> 00:07:27

It is this great responsibility, the intellect that distinguishes the human beings from all of the animals and makes them the crown of the creation as a loss upon what Allah says.

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

While Hakuna in Santa Fe asks any tech

00:07:36--> 00:07:38

the human beings are the managers of the earth.

00:07:40--> 00:07:47

And, as it were, they have been ordered to be the keepers of peace.

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

With this great consideration, do I present to you the proposition

00:07:54--> 00:07:58

that the governments of the world with their respective leadership

00:07:59--> 00:08:02

are obligated to search for a better

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

and more comprehensive way for arriving and establishing peace.

00:08:12--> 00:08:22

From the earliest recorded history, civilizations and individuals have put forward what they have considered to be a system

00:08:23--> 00:08:36

of philosophy or culture that in their opinion, would or should result in that noble objective, establishing peace in the earth.

00:08:41--> 00:08:49

The Pursuit of Happiness, harmony, prosperity and peace are not object pursuits.

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

They require a very comprehensive plan.

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

It is our responsibility this evening

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

to objectively review

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

and examine some of these systems,

00:09:06--> 00:09:16

some of these theories and determine just how they are suited and just how successful they have been

00:09:17--> 00:09:26

in their claims towards providing peace in the earth. Of course, it is our conviction as Muslims

00:09:27--> 00:09:28

and rightly so

00:09:30--> 00:09:34

that Islam and only Islam has the system

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

and the culture and the comprehensive ability

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

for obtaining this objective, because,

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

number one,

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

Islam and only Islam has a divinely designated system, which has all of the components that are suited for man's interaction with them.

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

Man,

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

man's interaction with his creator,

00:10:05--> 00:10:08

and man's interaction with the universal environment.

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

Number two,

00:10:13--> 00:10:16

it is Islam and only Islam

00:10:17--> 00:10:40

that provides a system that has a detailed map and manual for guidance and legislation that regulates man himself and modifies the nature of human beings, which is inclined towards excess greed, arrogance and aggression.

00:10:43--> 00:10:51

For if the plan towards peace does not provide a manual of guidance and

00:10:52--> 00:11:00

a means by which to regulate the human beings, there will never be any peace, for there will always be some human beings,

00:11:02--> 00:11:04

who, through their own excessive appetites,

00:11:05--> 00:11:15

through their own arrogance to their own desires, move on to impose themselves upon others. And in that case, there can be no peace.

00:11:18--> 00:11:35

We will attempt to illustrate just how and why the Islamic system is best able to achieve this. And we will provide a law willing the evidence for those who are open minded and objective to this issue or this discussion.

00:11:38--> 00:11:47

I would like to remind the non Muslims, whoever they are, wherever they are, who may hear this lecture, who may be here with us,

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

in principle or in person.

00:11:54--> 00:12:00

There it calls for an open mind and an open heart to digest any proposition.

00:12:02--> 00:12:09

And so if your heart is closed, and your mind is closed, and you have a preconditioned

00:12:10--> 00:12:16

mentality, like a glass, which is upside down, you cannot receive anything.

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

It would be proper for us to begin by defining peace, from a linguistic and social point of view.

00:12:29--> 00:12:38

Because as I mentioned, this is not something which is abstract. And it is not something designed just by one group of people.

00:12:39--> 00:12:55

But the author of peace ultimately, is the designer of this and the best one to define it. But from a linguistic point of view, since all human beings have a meeting point in language, we need to define

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

what the Oxford Dictionary says.

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

What is peace?

00:13:04--> 00:13:07

The dictionary says that peace

00:13:09--> 00:13:14

ultimately is the freedom from and the threat of war.

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

And obviously, because we are living on the precipice

00:13:21--> 00:13:27

of war and the possibility of the annihilation of modern humanity,

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

those who have brought us on this precipice

00:13:32--> 00:13:37

themselves, obviously do not have the solution for peace.

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

Peace is the freedom from civil disorder.

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

And civil disorder means

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

rebellion against

00:13:53--> 00:13:58

just balanced, decent government.

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

And please,

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

it means to have tranquility.

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

To have mental calm.

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

To have safety within the borders of one's country, one's home and one's heart

00:14:22--> 00:14:27

and another Dictionary of modern English we find the meaning.

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

that peace is a state of harmony

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

between people and groups.

00:14:37--> 00:14:43

And that peace is law and order throughout a state and throughout the world.

00:14:46--> 00:14:54

And peace is the absence of mental anxiety and psychological stress.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

It is clear that neither of these definitions within them

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

selves provide a clear and comprehensive definition as it applies to the moral and spiritual aspects of human existence. Therefore, let us look at a wider definition, which includes the above, but goes further to address the very source of peace itself.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

And the Arabic language,

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

which is very rich in its meanings,

00:15:26--> 00:15:31

the definition of the word peace or Islam, it means submission and surrender.

00:15:35--> 00:15:49

And it doesn't mean submission or surrender to any man made legislation. It doesn't mean submission or surrender or conformance to any particular government. It means submission and surrender

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

to the Creator,

00:15:53--> 00:16:05

who is the source of existence, who is the owner of the human beings, who is the designer of the heavens and the earth, and whom without his nipmuc

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

without his benefit,

00:16:10--> 00:16:30

without what he has sustained without he is what he has given. The human beings themselves would not exist and their environment would not exist. Therefore, submission and surrender ultimately means submission and surrender to the creator of existence.

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

Qur'an

00:16:33--> 00:16:51

which is the highest and purest source of Arabic in the world, has further qualified such submission and surrender, that it should be directed exclusively to the creator and the legislator

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

which and the legislation which that creator has provided for the human beings.

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

The scholars of the Islamic Cree

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

has provided us with a very clear definition of peace in the following statements in the Arabic language it says and Islam

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

is this lamudi la hibbett tohei

00:17:20--> 00:17:23

Well, NPR doula who withdraw it,

00:17:25--> 00:17:32

that Islam that is peace and service submission to Allah. It means

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

surrender.

00:17:35--> 00:17:50

conformance and submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala the creator according to the rules which he has audit His prophets alayhis salaam, the rules of strict monotheism.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

Well, MKR doula who and giving up and surrendering oneself,

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

surrendering one's will

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

surrendering one's mentality,

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

surrendering one's ideas and feelings,

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

withdraw it

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

surrendering one ideas, feelings or opinions

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

to his obedience

00:18:25--> 00:18:33

and rejecting all forms of rebellion and disbelief

00:18:34--> 00:18:41

and polytheism and all the branches of these diseases wheresoever they are.

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

This is the definition that the Islamic scholars have given to

00:18:49--> 00:18:50

the meaning of peace.

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

For our purposes this evening,

00:18:58--> 00:19:16

we need to examine and compare some of the major systems in the world today to see whether they are or whether they have provided the solution for the social, economic, moral and spiritual peace and harmony for the human beings.

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

However,

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

we should set some criteria

00:19:23--> 00:19:30

for judging whether these systems whatever they may be appropriate

00:19:31--> 00:19:37

or qualified to be considered as the very best system suited

00:19:38--> 00:19:43

to lead the entire humanity towards a comprehensive peace.

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

Such a system

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

according to the social scientists,

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

the political and historical mentors,

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

the major teachers of ethics and philosophy

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

Such a system should have the following characteristics. One,

00:20:07--> 00:20:25

it should protect and nurture the rights and the responsibilities of the human beings in their individual capacities. Number two, it should preserve the sanctity and the importance of the family unit.

00:20:26--> 00:20:31

Because ultimately, the family unit

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

is the basis for society.

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

And without the family unit and its protection and preservation,

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

there can be no

00:20:43--> 00:20:49

salvation, there can be no sanctity, for humanity itself.

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

Number three,

00:20:52--> 00:21:01

it should cultivate the idea of cooperation, morality, and mutual respect within the members of the community.

00:21:04--> 00:21:23

Number four, it should have institutions and legislation that promote and regulate the society towards ethical values, respect for law, concern for the young and the elderly, and a commitment for charity and morality.

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

And number five, it has to be a system

00:21:30--> 00:21:37

that is all inclusive in its interaction and concern for all the peoples of the earth

00:21:38--> 00:21:42

and not infatuated with its own form of nationalism.

00:21:43--> 00:21:52

It must have the ideals and principles that can attract and lead the world into one cohesive, universal order.

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

Having said this criteria,

00:21:57--> 00:22:06

we can immediately see that almost every social system that exists in the world today has been eliminated.

00:22:10--> 00:22:13

We cannot consider communism or socialism.

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

Because we can see now

00:22:18--> 00:22:21

the results of that tragic social experiment,

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

which has failed.

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

Five years ago,

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

no one predicted

00:22:35--> 00:22:39

that the experiment called socialism and communism

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

would be a failed experiment.

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

Because

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

at that time,

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

it was

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

commanding one third

00:23:00--> 00:23:03

of the whole of humanity under its influence.

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

One third of the entire world

00:23:08--> 00:23:14

found itself under the influence of the Communist and socialist experiment.

00:23:15--> 00:23:24

And no one predicted at that time, that this experiment would be dismantled, and that it would become history.

00:23:25--> 00:23:29

It has been dismantled. And today it is history.

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

The fathers

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

and proponents of that theory

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

have abandoned it

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

for an empty atheism.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

And they find themselves now in bed

00:23:50--> 00:23:54

with those who they consider to be the enemies, the capitalists.

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

And so today,

00:23:58--> 00:24:08

the social tragedy, called communism has turned into a nightmare. And they are now bed partners, with the capitalists.

00:24:13--> 00:24:23

And the principles of socialism and communism, now lie in the ashes of a demoralized and dichotomize society.

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

And what has happened to the one third of humanity who was subjects of that experiment?

00:24:35--> 00:24:38

We cannot consider the intellectual atheist model

00:24:40--> 00:24:43

which has found its umbrella all over the world.

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

Because we can see the gross confusion and paralysis within the western atheist societies where racism, nationalism, individualism, and dialectical materialism. Have

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

rupture the idea of morality, brotherhood, godliness, and the sanctity of the family.

00:25:09--> 00:25:19

These characteristics, morality, brotherhood, godliness, and the sanctity of the family had become abstract.

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

If you ask

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

the average individual in the Western societies, the so called most developed societies,

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

what is meant by godliness, they will say they don't know

00:25:38--> 00:25:43

what is meant by the sanctity of the family, they will say they don't know

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

what is meant by brotherhood and fraternity.

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

They don't know

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

and what is meant by morality.

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

It no longer has any definition.

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

When we examine capitalism, which is the major system, the major religion, the major set of ideals and philosophy, and social system in the modern world,

00:26:14--> 00:26:20

we only have to view some of the glaring statistics to see whether it is worthy of our consideration.

00:26:22--> 00:26:35

capitalism, which is built upon the interests of corporate business, and the flow of currency has engulfed the modern world, and gross materialism and decadent in morality,

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

are decadent in morality, which is unmatched in the history of humanity.

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

Let us review some of those statistics.

00:26:47--> 00:27:17

Capitalism first made its impression upon the world through the inhumane institution of slavery, where for nearly 400 years, more than 80 million Africans were brutally kidnapped and forced into a system where they were sold as a commodity, and used in the industrial agricultural complexes of America and Great Britain, and treat it with less dignity than dogs and mules.

00:27:18--> 00:27:45

Capitalism made its way to South America, where the Conquistadores invaded and slaved, terrorized and thoroughly exploited their natural resources in the name of the king of Spain and the king of Portugal. Companies today, like Del Monte, and Goodyear rubber still operate industrial slave complexes in South America today.

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

capitalism has manifested itself

00:27:51--> 00:27:53

in the diamond mines of South Africa

00:27:56--> 00:28:01

and the colonialism and exploitation of India, Africa, Southeast Asia,

00:28:03--> 00:28:06

and also in the tragic exploitation

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

of the Australian Aborigines

00:28:10--> 00:28:13

a story that perhaps you know better than I

00:28:17--> 00:28:18

in the modern world,

00:28:19--> 00:28:23

which the people like to call the most sophisticated advanced civilization.

00:28:26--> 00:28:29

In the USA, and the UK in particular,

00:28:31--> 00:28:44

we have only to review the statistics to determine how close these societies have come to fulfilling the criteria and models for peace. Let me share with you some of these statistics.

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

Between the USA and the UK,

00:28:50--> 00:28:54

the two most sophisticated advanced civilizations.

00:28:55--> 00:28:59

This there are 27 million persons addicted to drugs.

00:29:05--> 00:29:09

There are 89 million people addicted to alcohol.

00:29:12--> 00:29:17

There are 106 million persons addicted to cigarette smoking

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

21 million of those die every year

00:29:28--> 00:29:33

from diseases related to their addiction to cigarette smoking.

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

24 million women

00:29:40--> 00:29:44

prostitute themselves legally with licenses.

00:29:49--> 00:29:50

Eight murders

00:29:52--> 00:29:55

or homicides are committed every 19 minutes

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

and two rates are covered

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

minute, every seven minutes

00:30:04--> 00:30:06

and there are three robberies

00:30:08--> 00:30:09

every 59 seconds

00:30:12--> 00:30:25

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

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

By license

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

21 million children

00:30:34--> 00:30:39

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

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

or who do not know whom they are fathered by

00:30:46--> 00:30:54

2.8 million suicides every year of human beings who find no reason to live

00:30:57--> 00:31:00

275,000 persons

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

are locked up in their prison industrial complexes.

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

And today

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

the prisons are built

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

as industries.

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

They are no longer built simply to house and to reform criminals. They are built as industries and major conglomerates

00:31:25--> 00:31:34

compete with one another for the contracts to build and to administrate these prison complex is because they have found

00:31:36--> 00:31:57

that the labor from prisoners or just like the labor in South America or India in other places, they can have people locked up for 20 years 30 years or for life and have them to work for 53 cents an hour. So it makes sense to build prisons, and it makes sense to give people life in prison.

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

These statistics

00:32:05--> 00:32:06

I share with you

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

these statistics I share with you.

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

Of course they are subjective statistics.

00:32:23--> 00:32:24

And of course,

00:32:25--> 00:32:28

there would be some social analyst

00:32:31--> 00:32:34

who would disagree and who may want to modify

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

these statistics.

00:32:38--> 00:32:39

And I say

00:32:41--> 00:32:47

even if we were to modify these statistics 30% and say that

00:32:49--> 00:32:53

and leave a room of 30% of error.

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

Still,

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

these statistics are shocking.

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

They are depressing. And they are evident themselves that such societies do not qualify to be the models, or the champions

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

for the source of bringing peace to the world.

00:33:15--> 00:33:26

With these kinds of social problems inside of their own boundaries inside of their own governments and their own institutions. How can they

00:33:27--> 00:33:29

bring peace to the world?

00:33:31--> 00:33:32

It doesn't make sense.

00:33:34--> 00:33:42

How can such societies promote peace, human rights, and morality for the world.

00:33:43--> 00:33:53

While it's quite evident, they are not able to bring such peace and morality inside of their own societies. It is crystal clear

00:33:54--> 00:34:03

that the capitalist social model which dominates the world today, is not suited for providing humanity with the paradigm for peace.

00:34:04--> 00:34:11

We should now consider whether the major religions of the world offer a solution to this challenge.

00:34:13--> 00:34:17

Let us first examine the historical profile and ideological premise of Christianity.

00:34:19--> 00:34:27

And to be very fair and objective to Jesus Christ, the son of Mary Elisa Lam.

00:34:31--> 00:34:40

We should not link the history of Christianity to the life or the message or the person of Jesus Christ alayhis salaam.

00:34:43--> 00:34:44

Rather,

00:34:46--> 00:34:53

we should say that those who claim to be connected to Jesus Christ and have created their own system, we should refer to them as the Christology

00:35:01--> 00:35:03

Although we Muslims believe

00:35:04--> 00:35:07

that Jesus Christ peace be upon him and his blessing mother

00:35:08--> 00:35:13

was a great prophet and messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala, according to

00:35:16--> 00:35:20

the Scriptures that prophesied is coming,

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

according to his own words, and according to the core and

00:35:28--> 00:35:29

Jesus Christ, he said,

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

in his own words,

00:35:34--> 00:35:41

I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. So he said he was not sent to the world.

00:35:46--> 00:35:50

He also told his followers, the nazarenes

00:35:53--> 00:36:10

go not into the way of the Gentiles, no into any town of the Samaritans, but go rather into the house of the lost sheep of the house of Israel. So Jesus Christ Himself, never said that he came to bring the whole world peace.

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

He came to bring a message.

00:36:14--> 00:36:16

He came to bring a gospel,

00:36:18--> 00:36:19

he came to prophesied

00:36:20--> 00:36:24

that someone would come after him who would bring that peace.

00:36:28--> 00:36:43

And although the actual life of Jesus Christ, Allah Islam is a model of high morals, religious devotion and insistence upon sacrifice and obedience for Almighty God, we find that the history of the Christian church

00:36:45--> 00:36:50

to be diametrically opposed to the life and the message of Jesus Christ.

00:36:53--> 00:36:58

And we find it to be associated with slavery, colonialism, segregation,

00:36:59--> 00:37:07

homosexuality, and child molestation by priests, who are responsible for administering the religious sacraments.

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

We should point out

00:37:15--> 00:37:39

that the participation of the church itself in the African slave trade and the post colonialism, apartheid of South Africa, the genocide conquest of Spain and Portugal in South America, the subjugation of the people of Southeast Asia, and the central role in the shame of the crusades, itself disqualifies the modern church from such a role.

00:37:42--> 00:37:47

Christianity or more accurately, the cryptologists

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

as a world system,

00:37:53--> 00:38:01

does not deserve to be associated with the great and sacred Person of Jesus Christ alayhis salaam and his blessing mother.

00:38:02--> 00:38:07

Nor does it qualify to lead the world towards the proposition of peace

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

and more than anything, peace

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

requires

00:38:18--> 00:38:20

a regulation a manual,

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

a manual that can regulate

00:38:25--> 00:38:27

and be represented by government.

00:38:29--> 00:38:30

The Christian Church has never

00:38:31--> 00:38:32

been able

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

to develop a government

00:38:39--> 00:38:49

and that is why today, it finds itself on the lower scale of the dichotomy between church and state, that is,

00:38:50--> 00:39:01

throughout the world, the state of human beings and the government of human beings have subjected the church to a role of only rituals

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

Hinduism

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

and Buddhism

00:39:13--> 00:39:16

clearly based upon caste systems,

00:39:18--> 00:39:25

where they consider in particular the Hindus consider all sutras and that word sutra

00:39:27--> 00:39:31

is anyone who is not of the Brahmin class, the godly class they call it

00:39:32--> 00:39:35

all sudras that means the untouchables

00:39:36--> 00:39:40

in their own words, on a level the same as the species of animals

00:39:43--> 00:39:45

and according to the Hindu belief,

00:39:47--> 00:39:48

any Brahman

00:39:49--> 00:40:00

the godly class that kills a sudra. The atonement for killing a sudra is like the killing of a dog of frog, a lizard, a crow, and I

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

An ant.

00:40:03--> 00:40:10

Obviously, a belief that characterizes human beings like that cannot offer peace to the world.

00:40:16--> 00:40:18

The Hindus also state

00:40:19--> 00:40:36

in the own book, that whatever is on earth belongs to the Brahman, for the Brahman, that is the godly class of human beings is the highest among all human beings, and all things are for him, and all other things belong to Him.

00:40:38--> 00:40:42

As for the religion of Judaism, neither do they invite

00:40:44--> 00:40:48

anyone to their religion, neither do they join anyone.

00:40:51--> 00:40:59

They are an exclusive people, and we don't associate them with Abraham alehissalaam.

00:41:00--> 00:41:04

And we don't associate them with Musa alayhis salam,

00:41:05--> 00:41:07

because they have long ago,

00:41:08--> 00:41:10

under the guise of Zionism,

00:41:11--> 00:41:23

and other the tenants of their modern day scripture, the Talmud, they have long ago abandoned the tradition of Musa alayhis salaam and Ibrahim alayhis, Salam.

00:41:25--> 00:41:31

And under the principle of Zionism, according to the Talmud,

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

the Jews have a semi divine status, and all non Jews and Gentiles are called goyim,

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

filthy, unclean sub humans.

00:41:47--> 00:42:00

The Talmud itself is the preeminent legal authority for all Jews today. This clearly disqualifies them for providing the world with universal system of peace.

00:42:04--> 00:42:13

We would like to now examine the premise of Islam for consideration as a system which can offer to the world a constitution and a culture

00:42:15--> 00:42:19

that can reform the world and lead it down a path towards peace.

00:42:20--> 00:42:25

Let us rely upon the Quran itself to provide the mission statement for what we have to say.

00:42:29--> 00:42:31

First, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:42:32--> 00:42:35

says in Edina en de la Islam

00:42:37--> 00:42:48

wehrli the system before Allah subhana wa Taala for all the human beings is nothing other than surrender and submission to him.

00:42:53--> 00:42:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions to us

00:42:58--> 00:43:00

FLIR to debono Quran

00:43:02--> 00:43:07

Do you not reflect upon the Quran? Or human beings?

00:43:08--> 00:43:10

Do you not study it with care?

00:43:12--> 00:43:15

Had it been from anyone other than a law?

00:43:17--> 00:43:18

Almighty God?

00:43:19--> 00:43:24

Certainly you will found in it many in consistencies and conflicting evidence.

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

Therefore,

00:43:30--> 00:43:44

we will never find any statements in the Quran that conflict with any facts established by modern science. While the medicine astronomy, botany, chemistry, geology, obstetrics oceanography,

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

you will never find in the Quran

00:43:50--> 00:43:56

any statements that conflict factors that have been established by modern science.

00:43:58--> 00:44:18

Secondly, the Koran and only the Quran has provided the world with the most powerful economic system and a very clear in sentence insistence upon intellectual brotherhood, a guide to social ethics regulations to preserve the morality of the society,

00:44:19--> 00:44:36

a prohibition against alcohol, drugs, fornication, adultery, and a very strict and harsh punishment for robbery, drug trafficking, rape, murder, and decency, sodomy, and every kind of public and sexual immorality.

00:44:37--> 00:44:40

And this is why regardless

00:44:41--> 00:44:45

of the lack of sophistication you may find among Muslims

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

the moralities

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

that are common among

00:44:53--> 00:44:56

the sophisticated civilizations

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

it's very rare among Muslims.

00:45:02--> 00:45:03

Of course,

00:45:05--> 00:45:14

alcohol and drugs have found their way into the Muslim societies, but they still remain a subculture

00:45:15--> 00:45:30

a rarity, something extraordinary, something out of the ordinary, you will find that 95% of the Muslims do not drink alcohol, do not take drugs.

00:45:31--> 00:45:36

95% of the Muslims do not commit fornication and adultery.

00:45:37--> 00:45:42

And it is very rare to find a Muslim woman

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

committing herself to prostitution.

00:45:47--> 00:45:57

And the number of illegitimate children in the Muslim world is negligible. Why? Because the family is say still sacred.

00:45:59--> 00:46:01

This itself is evidence

00:46:03--> 00:46:14

that the 1.4 billion Muslims throughout the world, we don't mean out of here. We don't mean Africans here. No, we mean the Muslims wherever they are.

00:46:15--> 00:46:22

Because we can gauge the difference between Muslims in every country. For instance,

00:46:23--> 00:46:30

we can apply the statistics I gave you about the non Muslim world in China.

00:46:31--> 00:46:37

In China, there are more than 180 million Muslims.

00:46:39--> 00:46:42

And among those 180 million Muslims,

00:46:44--> 00:46:54

drugs, alcohol, fornication, adultery, in morality, sodomy, homosexuality is negligible.

00:46:57--> 00:46:59

It hardly doesn't exist.

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

And when it does exist, it's an abnormality. And it doesn't exist in the open. These are the Muslim Chinese.

00:47:12--> 00:47:15

But when you visit the other part of China,

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

which are more than

00:47:20--> 00:47:24

850 million people,

00:47:25--> 00:47:26

you find that

00:47:28--> 00:47:32

alcoholism, drug addiction, immorality,

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

cannibalism,

00:47:35--> 00:47:44

homosexuality, prostitution, immorality, bastard children, is the norm among the Chinese.

00:47:46--> 00:47:50

What is the difference between the Muslim Chinese

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

and the non Muslim Chinese, the difference is the core and

00:47:56--> 00:48:02

the difference is the behavior that they have adopted from Mohammed Salatu was Salam.

00:48:04--> 00:48:08

And you can take the same parameter and take it to Russia.

00:48:09--> 00:48:14

And in Russia, there are 90 million Muslims.

00:48:16--> 00:48:21

And among the Muslims of Russia, you find the same characteristics.

00:48:22--> 00:48:24

And then you can move on

00:48:25--> 00:48:39

to every different civilization, every different society and just extract from that society, the Muslims, and apply the ruler to the Muslims and you'll find here in Australia,

00:48:41--> 00:48:49

I understand in the City of Sydney, there are more than 400,000 Muslims. I don't know how many Muslims there are in Australia.

00:48:50--> 00:49:04

But I will guarantee you that if you examine the social statistics of the Muslims and Sydney itself, you find it very rare and abnormality for a Muslim child to be born not knowing his father.

00:49:06--> 00:49:14

But you find it a normality among the non Muslims for a child to be born not knowing its father.

00:49:16--> 00:49:26

You find it rare among the Muslims, that a Muslim woman becomes pregnant and she will abort a child. It hardly never happens.

00:49:27--> 00:49:28

But here

00:49:29--> 00:49:37

in Australia itself, I looked up a statistic. There are more than 56,000 children aborted every year.

00:49:39--> 00:49:55

Why among the Muslims that doesn't happen and why among the non Muslims it is happening. Why because the Muslims of Australia they are affected and regulated by the court and and by the behavior of Mohammed sallallahu wasallam.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

And why is it among the Muslims

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

In Australia or America, in America, there are 8 million Muslims

00:50:08--> 00:50:21

286 million people and 8 million Muslims. It is very rare in America to find a Muslim, addicted to drugs. And when they are,

00:50:22--> 00:50:34

they are just subject to the society they are criminals, but it is rare. Not a normality. And hardly ever do you find a Muslim, addicted to alcohol.

00:50:35--> 00:50:36

Unfortunately,

00:50:37--> 00:50:45

unforced Unfortunately, some of the Muslims are engaged in criminal trafficking of alcohol and drugs. But they don't use it.

00:50:47--> 00:50:54

It's a crime for them to sell it. It's a crime for them to traffic it. And in the Muslim country, they will be killed for that.

00:50:56--> 00:51:19

So we don't justify it, but they don't use it. So why is it this statistic that among the 8 million Muslims in America, it's very rare that a Muslim woman in America will abort her child. It's very rare in America that a Muslim child is born and doesn't know its parent, its father.

00:51:20--> 00:51:22

It's very rare in America that

00:51:23--> 00:51:31

fornication and adultery among the families, it's very rare, and sodomy and homosexuality.

00:51:32--> 00:52:03

There is not even 1% among the Muslims. Because in Islam, we don't say that people are born with this characteristic. We say that it is a learned, chosen characteristic. And the Quran tells us clearly that the punishment for that through the prophets of Allah stems example and do the hula for Russia does example, that the people who do those actions, they should be killed.

00:52:06--> 00:52:07

That's it.

00:52:10--> 00:52:16

So because of that, historically, among the Muslims, this crime has not taken root.

00:52:18--> 00:52:31

Why is it among every society, in the modern world today, where Muslims live, we find a different set of statistics. It is because of the effect of the Quran.

00:52:32--> 00:52:35

And the behavior of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:52:36--> 00:52:37

And I say

00:52:39--> 00:52:41

that the modern world today

00:52:42--> 00:53:00

would complement itself would do itself a favor, would be wise would be prudent, if they were to consider the core. And if they were to consider the behavior if they were to consider the morals and the values of Islam, because if they did, they would find

00:53:01--> 00:53:04

they will be able to resolve some of their major diseases.

00:53:05--> 00:53:07

Let me give you an example.

00:53:09--> 00:53:10

Our brothers, the Taliban.

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

We won't comment on them from a political point of view, because that's not the nature of our talk today.

00:53:21--> 00:53:30

But let us comment on them for an accomplishment that they and only they were able to do in the modern world.

00:53:33--> 00:53:37

In the modern world between America, Great Britain, China, Russia,

00:53:38--> 00:53:41

Germany, France, Japan,

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

Italy,

00:53:44--> 00:53:47

between the major countries in the world.

00:53:48--> 00:53:56

The drug trafficking is a business and an industry of over $78 billion a year

00:53:59--> 00:54:01

$78 billion a year.

00:54:03--> 00:54:06

Can you imagine what kind of industry it is?

00:54:08--> 00:54:20

And can you imagine the tragedy, the disparagement, the disease that drugs have brought in the modern world as a result of this industry. Yet,

00:54:21--> 00:54:26

all of these sophisticated countries have found no solution for the drug problem.

00:54:28--> 00:54:31

In fact, they have chosen

00:54:33--> 00:54:40

to benefit, profit and regulate the drug traffic because they are unable to stop it.

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

Yet consider this.

00:54:45--> 00:54:47

The Taliban in Afghanistan

00:54:48--> 00:54:50

became an official government

00:54:52--> 00:54:53

after

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

the defeat of the Russians

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

and at that time

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

Afghanistan was the major theater corridor in the world for drugs.

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

61% of all the heroin of the world was produced between Afghanistan and China.

00:55:19--> 00:55:24

And the Russian gangsters. criminals were the ones that control this industry.

00:55:26--> 00:55:29

Part of the War of Afghanistan had to do with drugs,

00:55:30--> 00:55:32

not oil, not gas, but drugs.

00:55:35--> 00:55:36

When

00:55:39--> 00:55:41

the government of Russia was defeated,

00:55:42--> 00:55:51

and pushed out of Afghanistan, Afghanistan become immersed in Civil War. We know that, isn't it? Civil War.

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

That Civil War had two sides,

00:55:56--> 00:56:01

the atheists, the socialists, the communists, among the Afghans,

00:56:02--> 00:56:07

and the Muslims, who wanted to follow the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:56:09--> 00:56:20

The North, the Northern Alliance, who themselves were related to the Russian gangsters, who were mostly Muslims who have adopted socialism, atheism,

00:56:22--> 00:56:23

who themselves were criminals.

00:56:25--> 00:56:35

They wanted to continue the enterprise of drugs after the Russians moved out. They want to continue the the industry of prostitution, gambling all of this year.

00:56:36--> 00:56:38

And the Muslim said, No,

00:56:39--> 00:56:43

we won't continue that. We want to establish Islam.

00:56:44--> 00:56:46

And they began to have wars between them.

00:56:48--> 00:56:54

One of the groups that were insisting upon the Quran and the Sunnah were called the students.

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

In the Arabic language the students is

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

authority ban.

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

On on one occasion,

00:57:06--> 00:57:17

those atheists, socialists, communists, Afghanis, those criminal Afghanis, they entered some villages and they raped the women.

00:57:19--> 00:57:21

And some of those women escaped.

00:57:22--> 00:57:32

And they ran to seek protection with those students. And those students they sought to get a fatwa from their shoe.

00:57:34--> 00:57:46

What should we do about these Muslims who did this act? Those scholars said, they should be punished. They are criminals and the hokum is to find them and kill them as criminals.

00:57:48--> 00:57:50

Those students then took their weapons

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

and gathered themselves together as a group and call themselves the Taliban.

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

And they begin

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

to seek the honor of those women who were raped.

00:58:05--> 00:58:13

And they went from village to village, town to town until in a two year period of time, they conquered all of Afghanistan.

00:58:15--> 00:58:18

Two years, they conquered all of Afghanistan,

00:58:19--> 00:58:26

except only 19% 80% of Afghanistan, they conquered in two years.

00:58:27--> 00:58:30

Who were they? They did not have sophistication.

00:58:33--> 00:58:39

They were walking, riding donkeys and horses, fighting on foot,

00:58:40--> 00:58:45

fighting for the honor of their women, for the honor of their country for the honor of Islam.

00:58:47--> 00:58:50

And in two years time, they subdued the entire country.

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

Of course,

00:58:54--> 00:59:06

they will not sophisticated in their knowledge. They did not have universities, they did not have institutions, even in most of the Afghanistan, there was not a standing hospital.

00:59:07--> 00:59:13

But they established what they called the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

00:59:15--> 00:59:19

The only standing Islamic Emirate in the world at that time?

00:59:21--> 00:59:29

Yes, they were ragtag. They were not sophisticated, but they had honor and love for Allah subhanho wa Taala inside their hearts.

00:59:31--> 00:59:38

And we don't know, as Muslims, we don't know, any connection with the Taliban to September 11. Just be clear about that.

00:59:39--> 00:59:51

We don't know we don't have any evidence or any proof that they had any connection to that. Except that they would not give up there brother, Osama bin Laden.

00:59:53--> 00:59:57

We don't make any comments about what happened because we don't know.

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

But we don't indict

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

without evidence, and we certainly don't indict a country, because someone is living there whom someone else feels is indicted.

01:00:12--> 01:00:14

But let me get back to the issue.

01:00:17--> 01:00:18

Afghanistan

01:00:19--> 01:00:21

can came under the rule of the Taliban.

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

And they were faced with the challenge. How What are they going to do with the drug industry, which they found in Afghanistan.

01:00:35--> 01:00:37

The Taliban made a decision.

01:00:41--> 01:00:55

From a point of honor, for point of morality, a point of dignity and decency. From a point of Sharia, they could not support and allow drug trafficking to exist in Afghanistan.

01:00:56--> 01:00:57

So what did they do?

01:00:59--> 01:01:07

They began to punish those who held drugs, those who sold drugs, and they begin to imprison those that use drugs.

01:01:08--> 01:01:27

Then they gave an option to the farmers, who are the growers of puppies in Afghanistan, the major crops for drugs, isn't it, they told them, we will give you the land where you are growing the puppies, you, you take the land, but you must grow another crop,

01:01:28--> 01:01:30

you must grow a different crop.

01:01:32--> 01:01:37

But if you don't grow another crop, then we will bury you on that land.

01:01:41--> 01:01:42

That's the only option they gave them.

01:01:45--> 01:01:48

In a year and a half after the fact war came about this issue.

01:01:50--> 01:01:59

A year and a half. The drug trafficking and the growing of drugs and the manufacturing of drugs in Afghanistan was 3%.

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

How, how did the unsophisticated group of students without government without sophisticated institutions?

01:02:12--> 01:02:16

How did they do this? How did they eliminate

01:02:17--> 01:02:27

industry, which represented 61% of the of the source of drugs in the entire world? How did they do that? They did it from the men.

01:02:28--> 01:02:37

They did it because they were affected by the court. And they did it because they were affected by the behavior of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

01:02:39--> 01:02:41

And this is why I say as an example,

01:02:43--> 01:02:49

that Islam and only Islam has the properties by which to affect the human beings consciousness

01:02:51--> 01:03:00

to design and regulate his morals, and even to regulate governments so that even governments themselves have forced

01:03:02--> 01:03:05

to adhere to rules of decency and dignity.

01:03:08--> 01:03:25

The Quran has provided the world with the most powerful source of regulation. And Islam places the status of women and the family at the most precious and central unit of the society, and has laid down laws to prefer preserve its sanctity. Let us take another example.

01:03:27--> 01:03:34

You can travel throughout the Muslim world as I have done. And of course, you see tragedy, you see deviation.

01:03:35--> 01:03:47

We see Muslims being away from Islam, being negligent in their candor, but the family the Muslim family is still intact.

01:03:50--> 01:03:51

In the Western world,

01:03:53--> 01:04:04

when a person becomes 60 years old, or 70 years old, and they can no longer function. Let me tell you what happened to them in China and China they are put to sleep

01:04:07--> 01:04:19

because they have something in China called zero population. So there's no toleration for old people, when they get to a point where they have no function and the longer they put them to sleep like dogs.

01:04:24--> 01:04:41

In China, the rule is one child for every family. And if you have two children, you are put in prison and you are you and your wife are both anesthetize and removed and your ability to have children is taken out what do they call that?

01:04:43--> 01:04:45

vasectomy sterilized

01:04:48--> 01:04:49

This is China.

01:04:53--> 01:05:00

So what is the family become in the modern world? And what is the family in Islam? The family in Islam

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

Aim is the most sacred unit. Without the family, there's no society. Without the family, there's no sanctity.

01:05:08--> 01:05:20

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has placed respect for the mother and father as the highest respect next to Allah subhana wa tada a man as the prophets a lot of semiotic pseudo law.

01:05:23--> 01:05:26

He said, The prophets Lawson said

01:05:28--> 01:05:32

a solid to Alan Watts he had prayer in his proper time,

01:05:33--> 01:05:36

demand and said sumaiya he said

01:05:38--> 01:05:44

beruwala Dane and Amanda asked and what next? He said LG had feasability left.

01:05:46--> 01:05:58

So the Messenger of Allah so Allah said when he was asked what action is the best, and what is the most excellent in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said prayer in its proper time.

01:05:59--> 01:06:06

And after that respect for your two parents, and after that struggling in the way of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

01:06:07--> 01:06:15

And because the family has this value in Islam, still you find in the Muslim countries,

01:06:16--> 01:06:18

the children respectful of their parents.

01:06:20--> 01:06:21

The prophets have lost them said

01:06:22--> 01:06:24

he is not us

01:06:25--> 01:06:32

who has no softness, gentleness towards the youth, and has no respect for our elders.

01:06:34--> 01:06:37

This is the family of Islam.

01:06:38--> 01:06:45

Islam calls for social justice, distribution of wealth, preservation and honor for the family,

01:06:46--> 01:06:52

a social morality and an unequaled social justice, which is found

01:06:53--> 01:06:55

in no other government in the world.

01:06:56--> 01:07:14

Islam has laid down very clear and open traditions to the illustration of the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, for marriage, divorce, raising children, social interaction, business transactions, international relations and personal ethics and hygiene.

01:07:16--> 01:07:19

There is no human being in the entire world,

01:07:21--> 01:07:30

whose life can be looked at categorically and followed by individuals and governments in detail, except the life of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

01:07:34--> 01:07:52

And we Muslims can proudly say that a loss of Hannah what Allah has given to the world of humanity, the best example of behavior and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he said to us, laqad Candela confira soudan la sua tun Hashanah.

01:07:54--> 01:08:12

There is for you, human beings, and Muslims and believers, there is for you in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam, the most profound pattern of human behavior for those who believe in the law and fear the meeting with him on your monkey.

01:08:14--> 01:08:25

This is a challenge from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I always ask the enemies of Islam, the opponents of Islam, I always ask them

01:08:26--> 01:08:51

if you have some opposition to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam if you're not inclined to his example, I asked you produce for me right now tonight. Give me a name. Give me a personality. Tell me in history, any individual whose life can match categorically with that of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam they cannot produce anyone.

01:08:53--> 01:08:57

And the closest they can come is Jesus Christ. Alayhi Salaam.

01:08:59--> 01:09:19

And I say to him, that's close. But Jesus Christ was not a father. And Jesus Christ was not a husband. And Jesus Christ was not a statesman. And Jesus Christ was not a ruler. So in those four capacities alone, we can say that Jesus Christ did not compare with Mohammed Salah while they were slim, although they were both prophets and brothers.

01:09:21--> 01:09:27

So if the best they can do is come up with Jesus Christ, we say yes, Jesus Christ, very close.

01:09:28--> 01:09:37

And in all respects, we say we make no difference between the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But as a complete example, for the whole of humanity, we only find one

01:09:39--> 01:09:59

and even the modern historians and biographers today, in their examination of this issue, they have put together a list of 100 most influential human beings in the world, and five different biographers themselves. putting together this, they came up with the name Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam although they

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

themselves, they will not Muslims.

01:10:05--> 01:10:30

Islam has insisted upon every Muslim to pursue higher education and the application of every kind of science and the very first revelation to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu is him a lot about a katana said it cut off this Mira Nicola de Holla Holla in Santa min Allah, eco water Bukola Quran, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah in Santa Madame yalom

01:10:31--> 01:10:55

read in the name of your Lord and cherish who created you read who created you, a man out of a leaf like plot, proclaim and read and your Lord is most bountiful, who taught by the use of the pen? The Quran said who taught by the use of the pen and taught man that which he knew not. So it was the end that ordered

01:10:56--> 01:11:20

the Muslims to read, to study, to reflect, to pursue higher education and science. Islam has mandated the social equality of all human beings, the quality of women with men, the eradication of classes, and ordered the unprejudiced cooperation between all groups, communities and nations, you find nowhere else except in this lamb.

01:11:21--> 01:11:55

That all kinds of human beings, the black, the white, the red, the yellow, the male, the female, the tall, the short, the male, that the tall, the short, the rich, or the poor, all of them are together. And even when the prayer is called. No one of any class has the right to stand in a rank before another. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in a kurama calm in the law at kakum verse the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is those who are the possessors of taqwa fear of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

01:11:57--> 01:12:42

Islam invites the entire mankind to believe in Almighty Allah, the prophets and to submit themselves entirely a lot about what Allah says, And do they seek for other religion other than that of the religion of Allah, while all the creatures in the heavens and earth have willingly or unwillingly bowed to his world, and to him they shall all be brought back. We should say, we believe in the law and what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham is smile, Isaac, Jacob and the tribes of a Muslim and in the books given to Moosa, Isa and the prophets alayhi wa sallam from the Lord, we make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah, do we bow our will in

01:12:42--> 01:12:58

Islam? A lot of radical dollar says, If anyone desires a religion or system of life other than submission to Allah, Islam, never will it be accepted of them, and in the Hereafter, they will be among the ranks of those who have lost everything.

01:13:00--> 01:13:09

A lot about what Allah says, Oh, you believe fear Allah as he should be feared and die not except in a state of Islam.

01:13:10--> 01:13:25

A lot about a quota. Allah has mentioned to us these verses that we might reflect upon him as human beings. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, la ikura have a dean cut who rushed to Monterrey for my food but

01:13:26--> 01:13:29

while you remember la vaca, distanza, capital,

01:13:30--> 01:13:43

lumpy sama, la la la who saw me on Aleem Allahu La Jolla Dena Manu, New York little hometown of Zulu Mattila newer one Lavina cafaro Aria

01:13:44--> 01:13:53

ukri Juna homina Nuri Illa hula haben Nari homefree, hottie Dune, Allah subhana wa Taala mentioned,

01:13:54--> 01:14:45

let there be no compulsion in religion, truth stands out clear from error, whoever rejects target, that is the false idols and objects of worship and believes in Allah has grabbed hold of the most trustworthy handhold that will never break in a law he is and knows all things. It is the position of Islam, that all authority and rule belong to Almighty God. Allah and any government among the human beings have only the responsibility of implementing and executing those commands. It is not government's who themselves are the rulers. It is Allah subhanaw taala who has the right to rule and has the right to legislate and the governments of men, they are only interested by Allah subhanho wa

01:14:45--> 01:14:49

Taala with the privilege and responsibility of regulating the human beings.

01:14:50--> 01:14:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh, you who believe stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourself.

01:15:00--> 01:15:46

or your parents or your kin, and whether it be against the rich or the poor, for a law can best protect both. Follow not the lust of your hearts and your desires, less you swerve from justice. And if you distort justice, or declined to do justice wehrli laws well acquainted with all that you do. Oh, you who believe, stand out firmly for Allah as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others make you swerve towards wrong and depart from justice, be just implement justice, because that is next to piety and fear law for a law as well acquainted with all that you do. Thus,

01:15:48--> 01:16:19

we have proven through this proposition that Islam and only Islam has the capacity to lead humanity down the road towards world peace. Islam and only Islam can guarantee the present world, a solution to their social problems, and the erosion of Islam and only Islam can provide a moral reform and an equation of social justice for the world. Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us in the Quran,

01:16:22--> 01:16:30

Allah yo Mack Val Tula comme de novo, mem to la comunidad Mati what are the Tula Islam Deena

01:16:31--> 01:16:45

today, I have perfected for you, your religion, your system of life, and completed my favorite upon you and chosen for you Islam as your system of life.

01:16:46--> 01:16:49

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

01:16:50--> 01:16:54

in my proposition this evening, I have attempted

01:16:55--> 01:17:09

to put forward an equation towards world peace and to direct our attention towards the historical example of Islam. I didn't say the Muslims, I said Islam

01:17:11--> 01:17:24

because Islam is the rule. Islam is the principle Islam is the deen so we don't call the people to the Muslims, we call them towards Islam towards the principle towards the deen

01:17:25--> 01:17:47

and tomorrow's lecture, we will continue this proposition and we will discuss more Why? Why Islam and only Islam can be considered to be the solution for world peace. While kuqali Heather was stopped through la de la Khun Yahuwah for him, or tomorrow Rahimi wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

01:17:52--> 01:18:03

I'm responsible for what I said. And I'll do my best to answer questions relative to what I said. This was not a lecture aimed at socio political issues.

01:18:06--> 01:18:24

Peace is a moral issue. And that's what I'm talking about. If I touched upon some other things, it was to bring it to the issue of peace. So the questions that come for that I'm going to answer that, but if it doesn't, you please pardon me, but that's for another person to answer, or that's for another

01:18:25--> 01:18:26

lecture.

01:18:28--> 01:18:34

sisters who asked questions about marriage and divorce, that wasn't the subject, unfortunately.

01:18:42--> 01:18:45

The brothers who asked the questions about khilafah

01:18:47--> 01:18:54

that wasn't the nature of the question, the topic here. I didn't discuss Islamic State. And I didn't discuss the issue of khilafah.

01:18:56--> 01:19:03

And, of course, the whole body is related. Everything in the body is related to the body. So you can say, well, it was related some kind of weight.

01:19:04--> 01:19:09

But we were speaking about the issue of the solution towards world peace.

01:19:10--> 01:19:32

And if there's a way I can connect the issue of world peace to the need for Islamic State, of course, I say to everybody, of course we should have it. And if there's an Islamic State, of course, they will be fearful. But if there is no Islamic State, and if there is no khilafah still, we Muslims must strive towards offering the world of solution towards world peace.

01:19:36--> 01:19:40

I'll do my best to answer most of these questions or some of them anyway,

01:19:41--> 01:19:45

with seemingly six or 700 800 people here,

01:19:46--> 01:19:59

and I'm holding in my hands at least 50 questions. I don't think I'm going to be able to answer many of them but I'll try to do my best inshallah. And those I don't answer tonight. Maybe I'll answer some of them tomorrow night. Or maybe what I'll do

01:20:00--> 01:20:10

When I go home, I'll categorize them. And I'll enter them separately, and then I'll give them to the organizers of this lecture and you'll see them posted in Sharla. That's the best I can do for you.

01:20:14--> 01:20:28

The first question in Australia, the Muslims suffer the same sickness as the Muslims in the Arab world, oppressive and corrupt leadership stunting the let me before I even go into this question.

01:20:30--> 01:20:33

I don't believe that I don't believe this hype,

01:20:34--> 01:20:41

about everything that's wrong with the Muslims because of corrupt Muslim leaders. That's not correct.

01:20:43--> 01:20:45

Because the leaders themselves

01:20:47--> 01:20:51

are the leaders of weak, divided and corrupt people.

01:20:54--> 01:21:02

You see, when the people were the best, they had the best leaders. When the people become the worst, they get the worst leaders.

01:21:03--> 01:21:12

And in most cases, when people point at leaders, they're only jealous because they want to be there. And when they get there, they'll do the same thing.

01:21:14--> 01:21:21

We want better leaders. But I say that you brothers who have this talking, if you become better fathers,

01:21:22--> 01:21:24

you become better neighbors.

01:21:25--> 01:21:48

You become better co workers, you become better colleagues, you become better people and example for the Muslims as an individual, change your own behavior, and you'll find that your family will change, your neighborhood will change. Your society will change. Maybe Australia will change, maybe the world will change. But don't jump from you all the way to the 11 Islamic State.

01:21:50--> 01:21:57

Because the house is not built that way. We don't suspend the chandelier and the in the sky and then after that build the build the foundation.

01:22:01--> 01:22:05

So the issue of Islamic State is you have the rulership, this is an issue.

01:22:07--> 01:22:11

But we don't talk about that issue before we discuss the issue of behavior.

01:22:12--> 01:22:17

It is the behavior of Muslims themselves that have brought us to this condition, the behavior of you and me.

01:22:19--> 01:22:22

You say you know this behavior because in the morning, four

01:22:23--> 01:22:27

in the morning, how many people you think will be here?

01:22:31--> 01:22:33

Are the 100 people here praying fudger

01:22:37--> 01:22:41

Alhamdulillah, and there are 400,000 Muslims in the Sydney.

01:22:44--> 01:23:07

So brothers and sisters, let's be very clear and fair about this. Let's first blame ourselves. Let's do what the prophet Yunus la slam did when he was swallowed by the big fish. He said what? La ilaha illa Anta suparna in the fundamental body mean, I'm the one that's to blame. So blame ourselves first. as brothers as fathers,

01:23:08--> 01:23:20

as individual Muslims, blame ourselves, reform ourselves, then we will reform our communities and our families, then maybe we reform our neighborhoods, maybe we will reform our societies, and then maybe we will be able to reform the world.

01:23:25--> 01:23:33

Someone asked how did you find this lamp? Well, I'll just say to you this that I don't really have any extraordinary story. I'll be honest with you.

01:23:35--> 01:23:50

I'm one of the 2.3 million new Muslims in America. And being a Muslim, it's being a Muslim in America is a phenomenal story. But for me myself, I don't have any extraordinary story. Islam found me.

01:23:53--> 01:24:03

Can you explain to us about how important the beard is in Islam? Well, this wasn't relative to the topic, but I'll just say this clearly, the Messenger of Allah solos in ordered us to leave it.

01:24:04--> 01:24:47

Now leave it mean let it grow. In case you don't know. It admitted mean leave it off. Leave it means leave it to go. And just clip he said, clip the mustache. Clip the mustache so it doesn't grow inside your mouth and that is not unclench is not unsanitary. Clip the mustache and let the beard grow for the beard. The period is a natural sign of manliness. And it's a natural sign of distinguishing men from women. And among the companions of the prophets, a lot of us to them they use not even look at a man who shaved his beard for fear they may have desire for him.

01:24:51--> 01:24:55

So the importance of the beard is not just something

01:24:56--> 01:24:59

as somebody might say, just something of your own particular choice.

01:25:00--> 01:25:09

You like it or you don't like it, I want to wear my beard. I don't want to, if you decide willfully to shave your beard, you are willfully disobeying the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

01:25:10--> 01:25:28

And Allah subhanaw taala, he cursed the women that look like men, and he cursed the men that look like women. So let me Muslim Fiala and make his own decision about this issue. But it's a very clear issue. And there is no disagreement among the olema. There is some deviation among some of them, but there's no

01:25:30--> 01:25:36

differences among them as to whether the beard itself is wedging upon the man who is able to grow one.

01:25:42--> 01:25:46

Are there any Muslims that believe the World is Flat?

01:25:47--> 01:25:47

Now?

01:25:49--> 01:26:04

Yeah, they're brothers. This is not the it's not a relative question. But yes, in fact, one of our great teachers, one of our great teachers who have passed away now check Abdulaziz bin best rahimullah some years ago, as a matter of fact, when

01:26:05--> 01:26:08

he had this fatwah that, that the world was flat.

01:26:10--> 01:26:14

But But of course, we don't blame him, because he was not able to see.

01:26:15--> 01:26:53

So he had his opinion from what was brought to him and read to him in different books and things. And there was some opinion among people that went to last it was out of the Vatican, that it spread out, it meant it was flat, but it is flat, according to what we are seeing in walking and is spread out and flat. But when we go out of space, and we have seen it from outer space, it is round and is clearly established now. So I don't think there's any doubt scientifically and the Quran did not, did not disagree with that. So although this is a scientific question, yes, there are some Muslims, I think who maybe say that, but I don't think that they are knowledgeable.

01:26:59--> 01:27:01

Is jihad, our way to world peace.

01:27:04--> 01:27:07

jihad is a jihad is a principle,

01:27:08--> 01:27:09

which is a part of Islam.

01:27:11--> 01:27:28

jihad is a principle which is a part of Islam, and jihad is part of the regulation of Islam. So we don't pick and choose what we want of Islam. It's a it's a part of Islam. When it comes it comes and those who engage in it, they are the choice people of this nation.

01:27:34--> 01:27:46

Allah subhana wa tada somebody asked me for the for the delille Allah subhanaw taala says hello doula commodity gelatin, tangy cumin Adana Lim took me to Bella Saliba, he told us he said dilla VMware comm daddy

01:27:49--> 01:28:05

so this there's many more detail we can give as to whether jihad is worship upon the Muslims here Allah subhanaw taala is inviting us. You see, to work together with him to do what believe in a lot his message loss and make Jihad without goods and our persons.

01:28:06--> 01:28:10

Someone asks Can a man who has the characteristics of a Muslim Be

01:28:11--> 01:28:18

respectful elders honor food family, no drugs, alcohol, and yet never have been told about the existence of a law still have a chance of heaven?

01:28:20--> 01:28:22

The issue is not a chance for heaven here.

01:28:23--> 01:28:39

The person who asked this question, obviously they're not a Muslim, because everybody who is a Muslim knows that. First of all, it is not the issue of it is not the issue of piety alone. It is piety for whom some people they are pious. They are good people.

01:28:40--> 01:28:52

They don't use drugs, they don't fall okay. They don't steal, they don't lie. They don't cheat. They don't do any of these things, but they aim all this goodness towards the worshipping of Jesus Christ.

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

So this means that worship is directed towards a human being and anyone who directs their worship towards a human being an animal, an object or created thing, all of their deeds become nullified. nullified, that means of no value. Why? Because they were mis directed. It's the same as if you have deposited your money in a bank, all of your life you put all your money in a bank, and you found out later on, that it was the wrong account.

01:29:33--> 01:29:38

So it was good for you to save all of your money or your life, but you should have been put it in your own account.

01:29:40--> 01:29:49

So those who are investing their piety and directed it towards or their worship towards other than the Creator, then is nullified and in fact they will find themselves

01:29:50--> 01:29:55

having to stand before the creative with a great crime and that is associated partners with a law

01:30:03--> 01:30:13

Somebody said, you painted a very positive picture with the character of the Muslim personality around the world today. With this in mind, is the oma ready to implement the system of Islam comprehensively in the form of qLf? I

01:30:14--> 01:30:16

think I addressed it that question.

01:30:19--> 01:30:25

I think that the road towards our ultimate social aims begin with behavior. And I want to say that again,

01:30:26--> 01:30:33

the prophet SAW Lawson said I have been sent to perfect what good manners, good manners,

01:30:34--> 01:30:37

the Messenger of Allah. So lesson long before he was a ruler,

01:30:38--> 01:30:45

long before he was a statesman, long before he was a legislator, he was known as I mean,

01:30:46--> 01:30:47

a person possessing

01:30:48--> 01:31:29

the traits of trustworthiness. If your neighbors don't trust you, if your colleagues don't trust you, if your coworkers don't trust you, if you don't talk to them, and then and they don't know you to be a good person, a decent, dignified individual. Why should they accept from you, Islam? Do we think that Islam is just giving people pamphlets and telling them that they should submit themselves to the Islamic authority? We think this is Islam. Now this is not Islam. Islam is the reforming of our behavior and through our behavior, we are invited to human beings and the best Tao is your behavior. And brothers and sisters, please don't forget this issue. It is your behavior that either

01:31:29--> 01:31:34

invite someone to Islam or your behavior that repels people away from Islam.

01:31:37--> 01:31:43

Brother, what are the ways we can spread Islam in accordance with the Sunnah I think I just entered it through our,

01:31:44--> 01:31:45

to our behavior,

01:31:46--> 01:31:58

the Messenger of Allah, so a lot of them when he came to Madina, munawwara, when he made the hedgerow one of the first orders that he gave was towards a mu time watercrafts lm men are off to Atlanta, look at this.

01:32:00--> 01:32:19

Spread the food, give food to the people, invite them and go to them. You say, invite them to eat with you. And you also answer their invitation. This is one we'll talk about. We'll sell them and give good greetings to those who you know, and those who you don't know look at this as What is this? This is the order of behavior.

01:32:21--> 01:32:29

So the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he entered Medina, that was arrogance, not talking about the setting up of a state and establishing himself as the ruler.

01:32:30--> 01:32:45

Number five now what is the need of the people dealing with their problems? The Messenger of Allah so awesome started out as a human being as a young boy, he belonged to a group of young people called healthfood. What is that?

01:32:46--> 01:32:56

This is young people who are dedicated to doing what doing good charity, good works. What are some of our young people doing in the streets today? Are they healthy food?

01:32:58--> 01:33:06

No, they're doing the opposite. So it is our behavior brothers and sisters, our behavior brothers and sisters, our behavior brothers and sisters.

01:33:07--> 01:33:37

Someone says what would we see today as deviations in the world of Islam? How do we apply a moral reform? you quoted some examples as a possible cure punishment. What alternatives can be deployed? Well, punishment is the furthest extreme of regulation. Those who fear loss of Panama's Allah, they don't need punishment. punishment is for those people who don't feel Allah subhanho wa Taala or for people for the for an example to be made up some people so that others will either feel a loss of power with Allah or be reminded

01:33:38--> 01:34:00

the punishments of Allah subhanaw taala are wise and the punishment of the loss of Panama tala adjust and the punishments of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They are not brutal, but they bring about regulation in the society. For if there was no regulation among human beings, as the loss upon Allah says in the Quran, if he did not, if he did not regulate one group of people by another group of people, what would they do?

01:34:02--> 01:34:09

They will go to the earth and they would destroy everything and take what they wanted, unless some people will stop them from doing that. So I'll just do what

01:34:10--> 01:34:19

tomorrow tomorrow what and Han Allah Mancha enjoying the right forbid the wrong and part of the punishments as part of that from the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:34:22--> 01:34:38

someone said the establishment of the Islamic Sharia is binding laws and punishments for some of the crimes you have mentioned were seen primarily as a deterrent for crimes itself. This is only valid if under Islamic State does this is non existent today. What do we do for this?

01:34:39--> 01:34:46

The Sharia is not non existent. Whoa dude had had this we do not have the right to do

01:34:47--> 01:34:49

unless we have the authority in the land. This is correct.

01:34:50--> 01:34:55

But this is mean we should enjoy the right and forbid the wrong. Do we become helpless people?

01:34:56--> 01:34:59

We don't forbid the right we don't forget the wrong we can do what is short of the head

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

Head punishments. We don't cut the hands. We don't cut the next. We don't kill the people. We don't stone the people when we're living among the kuffar. We don't do that. Because we're not controlling government, we're not controlling the land. So hide requires has some special requirements, but doesn't mean we don't enjoy the right we don't forget the wrong just because of that. Then we go to the extreme that because we live in a non Muslim country, man, we don't pray. We don't fast. No, we do everything that we are supposed to do. But the issue of the head itself is left left up to the ruler. There's no Islamic ruler, we don't perform the head.

01:35:37--> 01:35:48

It doesn't mean that Sharia is gone, there is no Sharia for us because there is no ruler. The ruler is not the possessor of Sharia. He's the he's the executive of that.

01:35:50--> 01:36:02

Someone asked from your talk that Islamic State is the solution, will you give a class about the detailed method on how to re establish the state? Honestly, I'm not qualified to give a class on how to establish the Islamic State.

01:36:03--> 01:36:28

I think that we have scholars, qualified students of knowledge and scholars who can talk to us about the main hedge of Islamic movement, the main hedge of the discipline required for this and how it was done historically, and what we should do to contribute towards that. But I'm not one of those students of knowledge. I'm not one of those scholars to comment on that issue. And I'm only really trying to comment on some things relative to my talk today. Someone asked the question, do you think that

01:36:30--> 01:36:34

man made systems, communism, capitalism, democracy, etc?

01:36:40--> 01:37:08

Or districts are designed to destroy Islam? No, I don't think that's it. The issue is not that they're designed to destroy Islam. This is something from their own knifes their own desires, the human beings designed this for themselves. They think that this is best. They think that this is best, most profitable for them to follow. They didn't design it simply to destroy Islam. And I don't think that Muslims should have this kind of mentality that every other system is designed to destroy Islam, is that the case?

01:37:09--> 01:37:23

Now every other system they set up is a system which a set system set up by human beings is a system which is against the system of Allah subhanho wa Taala, but not necessarily designed as a conspiracy to undermine Islam. We Muslims and that reactionaries do

01:37:24--> 01:38:06

a so called conspiracy theory, we don't follow that we don't have, we don't have done. We don't think that everybody around us because you become paranoid than everybody around us, is conspiring to undermine us to kill us, to put us in prisons to destroy us to so forth and so on. This is not the case. As a matter of fact, if you have personally done if you have good behavior, and you participate with other human beings, and you exemplify you, Islam, wherever you are, exemplify your Islam, look, brothers, you will not far from Indonesia is Australia's not far from Indonesia. Indonesia was not established by armies going into Indonesia, and conquering that country was it

01:38:07--> 01:38:26

know, Muslims with good behavior, with good knowledge with the intent to go there for dour they move there? And through their behavior through the Dow and the mingling with the people? What happened to Indonesia? Indonesia capitulated to Islam. And today, Indonesia

01:38:28--> 01:38:32

is the most what is the largest population of Muslims on the earth?

01:38:34--> 01:38:37

What does it come from a come through dour,

01:38:39--> 01:38:41

do the behavior of the Muslims.

01:38:42--> 01:39:03

So this is a proof this can happen in the world today. Any government in the world today and in society in the world today can capitulate to the behaviors and the manner of the Quran and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. But you have to believe this and therefore you have to give the dour because if you don't give the dour, you are more than yourself.

01:39:04--> 01:39:36

You don't give the doubt because you don't believe that. So therefore, what happens you yourself becomes the subject of Dawa and therefore you capitulate to their dollar. And so we have become prisoners of somebody else's dollar because we're not giving the dollar. They have confidence. The Communist, the atheist, the socialists, the capitalists, all of them, the homosexuals and lesbians, all of them have their own dollar, and they are confident about it, and they spend money for it. If you're not confident about yours, and you don't spend money for it, why are you blaming them? They're doing their job.

01:39:43--> 01:39:59

So Brother, what is your view on the war with Iraq? I think it's a criminal wall. Let's just to be very clear, I'm an American citizen, but as an American citizen, I still have the privilege to have dissent with my government about something I think is a criminal act. I think that the war on iraq

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

The criminal wall. I didn't it has. It's not the issue of Saddam Hussein. It's not the issue. I think the whole world agrees that saddam has acted criminally towards his own people and towards other Muslims. The whole world agrees that I don't think we need to blow a horn to say that everybody knows that. But the issue here is not Saddam Hussein, and also, the social and justices in Iraq by Saddam Hussein, anybody else or in Afghanistan by anybody else, is not the affairs of another group of people who appointed the United States of America, who appointed Great Britain, who appointed anybody to go into another country, and to restore social justice, why they don't have it

01:40:40--> 01:40:41

in their own country.

01:40:44--> 01:40:45

And

01:40:46--> 01:40:48

let's be fair, and let's be just

01:40:53--> 01:40:54

did the people of Iraq,

01:40:55--> 01:41:04

if they are pressed and tyrannized by saddam, did they ask America or Great Britain, that they asked to come and be rescued? They did it.

01:41:06--> 01:41:08

So how do you go somewhere to rescue some people they didn't ask?

01:41:11--> 01:41:22

No, there is something there is something inside that land, which you want, and you using their oppression as a guide to capture what you want.

01:41:24--> 01:41:26

And what you want is not saddam.

01:41:27--> 01:41:33

Because whether saddam goes into exile or not, they are going in, because it's what they want.

01:41:34--> 01:41:45

And only Allah subhanho wa Taala the Muslims themselves, we don't need to talk about this issue. Because if we had the power to stop them, we would have stopped them. We don't have the power.

01:41:46--> 01:41:48

So while we keep talking about it,

01:41:49--> 01:42:01

our condition is what the prophet SAW last name spoke about long time ago, he said a time will come when the nations of the world would gather themselves together around you like a like a group of people gathered around a plate of food, isn't it

01:42:02--> 01:42:05

Hmm. And they will have

01:42:06--> 01:42:07

no respect for you.

01:42:10--> 01:42:14

They will have no respect for you. And you will have substance like

01:42:15--> 01:42:16

I said

01:42:18--> 01:42:41

like the phone when the bubbles on this on the shore on the on the sea when it goes to the shore, it goes back at least nothing there but trash. So the substance of the Muslims is like that today. So the Kaffirs whoever they are, they know our substance because they know the real Muslims they dealt with the real Muslims before. They got no respect for us right now. So why should they be considered about us shouting or saying or whatever we doing? We're not the right Muslims.

01:42:42--> 01:42:53

So what's going to happen in Iraq will happen by the command of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this masivo which we will suffer and they will suffer is from Allah subhanho wa Taala don't blame the ones who bring it.

01:42:55--> 01:42:59

When Allah subhanho wa Taala brought Genghis Khan on the Muslims.

01:43:00--> 01:43:03

The Muslims blame Genghis Khan or blame themselves.

01:43:04--> 01:43:07

For their condition when Genghis Khan was brought on them,

01:43:08--> 01:43:33

was the righteous was a fear in the last panel what Allah was they performing their prayers? was they obeying the prophets last name? So no, no, that wasn't. So Allah brought this masiva on them, which was worse than the masiva which will come to Iraq today. The Museum of Genghis Khan was worse than the most evil which will bring the most of what was happening to us today. So we Muslims, change our behavior and stop pointing the finger and blaming somebody else blame yourself.

01:43:40--> 01:43:41

The brother said this, the last question

01:43:45--> 01:43:56

is Aquila, for a informative objective and logical lecture. During this lecture, you mentioned some status of Muslim societies and about drugs etc.

01:43:57--> 01:44:02

and compare this to non Muslim societies. Some will argue that the status are not published in Muslim societies.

01:44:03--> 01:44:06

If it if it is not published.

01:44:07--> 01:44:13

It is because it doesn't exist. Because if it was existing, they would publish it.

01:44:18--> 01:44:25

And in case the person who asked this question hasn't traveled around the world, I was born in Harlem, New York.

01:44:27--> 01:44:29

So I know what drugs and prostitution is.

01:44:30--> 01:44:35

And I've traveled all over the world. I've been to Hong Kong, I've been to Singapore. I've been to Bangkok.

01:44:37--> 01:44:40

I've been to Bombay. I've been to Delhi.

01:44:41--> 01:45:00

You know, I'm living in the UK now. So I mean, I've been to the major societies and countries where Muslims are the majority and where they are the majority minority. And I said to you, I gave you the statistics or you want to call them guesstimates. I gave them to you from the experience.

01:45:00--> 01:45:41

From my own empirical experience and observation, as a social scientists, of a person reading and a person observing, and I say to you, that the Muslim world, what I just said to you the issue of prostitution, drug addiction, alcoholism, theft, murder, abortion, it's an abnormality. It's something extraordinary and rare among the Muslims. But it's a normal thing. As a matter of fact, it has become a major disease in all of the non Muslim societies. So we don't need to, we don't need to think whether or not something is happening among the Muslims is unpublished.

01:45:42--> 01:46:00

If you think it is not, so go to the Muslim countries and see for yourself. And you will see that basically, I've been very fair and very objective in what I've given. And I didn't say that the Muslims themselves are free of these diseases, I said that they exist, but they do not exist in the open.

01:46:02--> 01:46:15

You will never find in any Muslim society, where a court of law has given men the right to marry men and women the right to marry women, and also given them the right to adopt children as a family.

01:46:19--> 01:46:33

Now, this has happened in America and Great Britain. That's the case. If a woman wants to get married to a woman, she can have a man wants to marry a man he can, and they can adopt children. And nobody can say anything about that. That's the law.

01:46:36--> 01:46:39

Now, I don't know about Australia, you brothers have to tell me about that.

01:46:40--> 01:46:50

So I won't answer any more questions. inshallah, I want to thank the brothers and sisters, I want to thank you, first of all, for coming. That's number one. I want to thank the first Islam

01:46:51--> 01:47:09

organization for sponsoring this and and for the rest of the tour. I want to also thank the Imam of the masjid, for allowing us and for overseeing this, I want to thank all of you, most, especially for your patience and for your tolerance. Especially our sisters in sha Allah,

01:47:10--> 01:47:15

who may have had more questions than we have. But maybe the questions didn't reach me. I don't know.

01:47:17--> 01:47:27

They sent question just echolocate hamdulillah. And more than more than anything else. I want to thank the young people. You see the young Muslims who could have been in the street,

01:47:28--> 01:47:51

or who could be in the places or playing with video games or something. Or watching television, they chose to come here and sit for two hours to listen to this. I want to thank them. And I want to ask you to come back again and shelter. And I hope that maybe tomorrow night, I'll give another addition to this discussion here. And that I'll answer some questions that I didn't didn't answer this evening, what we call the high level stuff.

01:47:55--> 01:47:57

What is the purpose of life is life?

01:48:03--> 01:48:07

Why is it that when we ask the simple question,

01:48:08--> 01:48:10

what is the purpose of our lives?

01:48:12--> 01:48:15

Why do we get so many different answers?

01:48:19--> 01:48:23

Is because people haven't really thought about it.

01:48:24--> 01:48:26

It's too frightening.

01:48:28--> 01:48:42

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

01:48:45--> 01:48:52

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

01:48:53--> 01:49:02

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

01:49:05--> 01:49:07

we want to talk this evening about

01:49:09--> 01:49:10

Jesus, the son of Mary

01:49:12--> 01:49:14

and his phenomenal birth.

01:49:18--> 01:49:19

A birth

01:49:20--> 01:49:25

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

01:49:28--> 01:49:39

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

01:49:42--> 01:49:49

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

01:49:51--> 01:49:53

No man touched her

01:49:58--> 01:49:59

eight murders

01:50:01--> 01:50:05

homicides are committed every 19 minutes.

01:50:07--> 01:50:11

And two rapes are committed every seven minutes

01:50:14--> 01:50:16

and they are three robberies

01:50:17--> 01:50:18

every 59 seconds.

01:50:21--> 01:50:35

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

01:50:37--> 01:50:38

by license

01:50:40--> 01:50:42

21 million children

01:50:43--> 01:50:49

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

01:50:51--> 01:50:54

or who do not know whom they are fathered by

01:50:55--> 01:51:15

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

01:51:16--> 01:51:18

bring peace to the world?

01:51:20--> 01:51:21

It doesn't make sense.

01:51:25--> 01:51:26

All Muslims.

01:51:28--> 01:51:41

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

01:51:45--> 01:51:52

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

01:51:54--> 01:52:11

And when we cease to do that, we don't enjoy the right. We don't enjoy, enjoy and we don't enjoy on the right we don't forbid the wrong then Allah subhana wa Taala promise that he will visit us a calamity from himself.

01:52:13--> 01:52:14

So that

01:52:17--> 01:52:26

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

01:52:28--> 01:52:30

What do the Muslims of today expect?

01:52:33--> 01:52:39

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

01:52:41--> 01:52:47

Not what he or she says, not only what he or she waves,

01:52:48--> 01:53:02

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

01:53:03--> 01:53:06

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

01:53:09--> 01:53:21

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

01:53:22--> 01:53:24

and our model of no clock Bob.

01:53:27--> 01:53:28

He brought half of his wealth.

01:53:31--> 01:53:33

And he considered this to have been

01:53:34--> 01:53:36

a major sacrifice.

01:53:37--> 01:53:39

And he was very proud of that.

01:53:42--> 01:53:45

But when Abu Bakar de la and came, Abu Bakar

01:53:47--> 01:53:49

he brought all of his wealth.

01:53:51--> 01:53:55

And when the prophets Allah La one is asked Abu Bakar

01:53:56--> 01:54:03

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

01:54:04--> 01:54:14

Allah and His Messenger, so a lot of sin. And it was by the suggestion or the order of the prophets have lost them that Abu Bakr took back some of his wealth for his family.

01:54:16--> 01:54:19

And this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

01:54:20--> 01:54:20

mentioned

01:54:22--> 01:54:25

that there was no one from among the Muslims,

01:54:27--> 01:54:32

who displayed his loyalty to a lot His messengers, civilize them similar to that of Abu Bakar.

01:54:35--> 01:54:44

So Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said, Yes, definitely. Who who is better, who is more excellent

01:54:46--> 01:54:53

than the one that calls towards the loss upon Allah tala not just calling, not just shouting, not just arguing.

01:54:54--> 01:54:59

Well, I'm sorry, but they are acting upon what they are calling

01:55:00--> 01:55:04

They are setting a precedent for what they are calling to.

01:55:05--> 01:55:18

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

01:55:22--> 01:55:32

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

01:55:34--> 01:55:36

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

01:55:38--> 01:55:39

and you put a funnel in between them,

01:55:40--> 01:55:44

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

01:55:45--> 01:55:54

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

01:55:55--> 01:55:58

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

01:55:59--> 01:56:00

He was able to film

01:56:02--> 01:56:11

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

01:56:12--> 01:56:23

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

01:56:27--> 01:56:37

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

01:56:39--> 01:56:42

the first commandment given to Moses, consistent with

01:56:43--> 01:56:54

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

01:56:56--> 01:56:59

Not the number one that could be divided into 123.

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

Not the number one that could be multiplied.

01:57:05--> 01:57:27

But absolutely born, having no one Besides, no other God Besides, he or Israel, the Lord that God is one and that shall love the Lord thy God with all that heart and all that mind and all that soul, and thou shalt not worship anyone except the Lord that God, no bow down to any graven images in the heavens on Earth, or the sea below.

01:57:28--> 01:57:33

Such said Moses, and such said confirm Jesus Christ and such since the Quran.

01:57:36--> 01:57:41

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

01:57:44--> 01:57:55

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

01:57:57--> 01:57:58

Can you tell me

01:57:59--> 01:58:01

how the lives of a half a million people

01:58:04--> 01:58:14

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

01:58:16--> 01:58:17

Noriega,

01:58:19--> 01:58:23

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

01:58:25--> 01:58:36

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

01:58:38--> 01:58:57

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

01:59:01--> 01:59:02

If a man

01:59:03--> 01:59:06

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

01:59:09--> 01:59:13

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

01:59:15--> 01:59:20

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

01:59:22--> 01:59:25

men who still live with their mothers,

01:59:27--> 01:59:28

you couldn't do it.

01:59:29--> 01:59:31

And still, she's taking care of herself,

01:59:32--> 01:59:33

and she's taking care of her husband.

01:59:34--> 01:59:36

Male loss upon the reward those sisters

01:59:38--> 01:59:39

and male law cover their false

01:59:41--> 01:59:53

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

01:59:57--> 01:59:59

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he may

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

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

02:00:13--> 02:00:14

no substance.

02:00:18--> 02:00:24

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

02:00:26--> 02:00:28

Not just ambition,

02:00:29--> 02:00:56

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

02:00:58--> 02:01:09

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