I have a dream
that one day
mentioned the capture of 100,000 people were marching through Central London to protest against the plan for a war on Iraq and to demand just
regime change in Baghdad. I'm beginning to think we need a regime change right here in Washington DC.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he grant you
Salaam and Peace
and blessings for yourselves and your families. And we ask this for all of the believers whatsoever they are.
And as for those who are non Muslims, who may be here,
you are fortunate.
And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to extend
the blessings and the peace upon those who follow the guidance.
It is our aim.
To address this topic as a continuation of our discussion yesterday.
In our discussion yesterday, we spoke about the proposition
as the only viable solution for world peace.
And in that discussion, we made a comparison.
We spoke briefly about
other religions, other propositions put forward by individuals, and nations and governments.
And it was our attempt
to clearly set forward
that all of the ideologies and all of the isms,
and all the nations and governments and individuals who have put forward propositions and experiments, however well intended, they have failed
in the ambition, to provide humanity with a lasting peace and a comprehensive solution towards world peace.
In our discussion this evening, we don't want to make any comparisons.
We want to be very direct.
And we want to set forward the proposition clearly that Islam and only Islam
can offer a solution towards world peace.
And let us keep in mind the issue that peace is not the opposite of war.
This is something that the unbelievers want to put in our minds that peace is the opposite of war. That's not the case.
For Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is the author of peace.
And he does not threaten the human beings with war in order to provide them with peace.
Trees is a proposition. It is something that those who surrender and submit they automatically receive. Peace is something that the author of peace has given to the world peace is order.
Peace is discipline. Peace is precision.
Peace is science. Peace is knowledge, peace, civilization. Peace is virtue.
protest is dignity.
Peace is morality. And those who say that we are the peace keepers,
they first have to establish all of these characteristics before they can even offer their proposition.
We want to speak to seizing
on the proposition that Islam and only Islam
has offered and is still offering to the whole of humanity, a system of peace.
It is quite obvious
that the greatest sought after state of mind, heart and social condition in the entire world for all human beings is that of peace.
But it can be sought after, without ever being found, if one doesn't know what it is.
Because peace is not abstract. It's not just a thought in somebody's mind. It's not something which has been fashioned by the poets of the art, artisans,
please itself is a discipline, it is as much a discipline as mathematics, it is a law.
Those who violate it is just as those who violate law, those who violate violate it as just as off the mark as those who violate mathematics.
And Islam has put forward the solution for peace, in very simple terms.
Everyone seeks to obtain peace,
through their environment,
their leisure time,
through cultural engagements, or through therapeutic occupations. Everybody wants peace.
various nations and governments of the world claim
that they are the peacekeepers, although it is quite clear from a historical point of view, that those who claim to be the peacekeepers, they're the ones that perpetuate the most war in the world.
Those who claim they want to make people safe, and bring social justice to people are the ones that bring disparagement and despair, and filth and immorality.
It is quite clear
that their efforts,
the godless, those who are healers of the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala, those who call to themselves, those who say that we have the right to govern the world to govern ourselves and determine what we want to do with life. They are the heatless and they are the godless, and they're the ones who will fail.
It is quite clear that their efforts have brought about just the contrary of what they claim.
Now, most religions and systems of the world can tell us how to be honest, and how to be decent.
And we say
that most all religions
are teaching people to be honest and decent. But that's not the objective.
honesty and decency itself towards other human beings, is noble. But what about honesty and decency towards Allah? subhanho wa Taala?
Could it be that some children
are honest and decent among themselves, but they are criminal towards their parents?
They are honest and faithful among themselves, but they are not grateful and they are rebellious and disrespectful towards their parents, would you say that they are honest and decent? No, you would not? What about the human beings who are honest and decent among themselves? But they associate partners with the one who has created them and has told them that there's none to be worship except he?
Is that honestly, is that decent?
No, it's not.
So therefore, the question is,
what is the most comprehensive methodology for world peace?
And how can we implement that information to our lives in a practical sense? How can we implement it? How can we become beneficiaries of it, for our families, for our societies, in order to contribute towards the ambition to bring peace to the world.
Our proposition to you this afternoon is that Islam
and only Islam.
The system of life that comprehensive system of life which is ordered by the Creator and the author of existence,
is the only system that can offer to the entire world.
A system that is proven that it has the capacity
to cultivate and to administrate the public
Please for the entire world. And this is very important that any proposition of peace has to be able to cultivate and administrate
such a proposition for the entire world, not for a particular nation of people, not for a particular ethnicity of people, not for a particular class of people, but for the entire world.
Before we begin to support our proposition, let us first establish a criteria
that is offered to the world has to have a criteria.
Because the criteria is that which we judge it by in Arabic, we say for Han.
The English word criteria means a critical examination by which to determine whether this thing or proposition meats, what it claims. So, Islam has to have its criteria
and every other system
that wants to be proposed for the same, we should judge it by the same criteria.
the idea, the ideology, or the system must by definition, set forward the intent or the purpose to obtain or maintain world peace, it does not set forward that purpose, how can it achieve something which it has not set forward as its own purpose.
It must have a manual
it must have a constitution. It must have a sense of principles that if adhered to, would bring about the desired peace through the world, this is very important.
There must be a manual that we can examine it by,
it must have a constitution that we can also examine to see whether it is comprehensive enough in its policies and what it sets forward.
It must set forward principles that if adhered to,
could in fact, bring about peace in the entire world for all human beings.
It must be universal.
It must be comprehensive, it cannot be set upon nationalistic
ethnic terms, geographical terms, cultural terms, for if that's the case, it would only be binding and applicable for a limited group of people.
It must be universal. And it must be comprehensive in its context, so that all people have every time of every place can follow and benefit from it. Without any bias, and without any prejudice to anyone.
It must have
illustrated its ability throughout history.
For if it has not illustrated its ability throughout history, then it would be something new. And if it is something new, it is disqualified. For certainly if it is a solution for world peace, it must have always been there.
It must have illustrated its ability to address all of the complex circumstances and all the situations peculiar to the human psychology and the human drama.
It must address everything. It must not leave out anything.
It must have produced a legacy that has been documented for if it has not been documented What proof is there is of it that it exists.
That documentation must be in our hands. It must be there to be examined by the millions and billions of human beings throughout the world. It must be there to stand against every other proposition.
It must have been preserved from the very first time that it was proposed.
It must have produced a legacy that has been documented and proven to be superior and resilient among other ideologies of the world, while remaining tolerant and dignified towards the same that is, even though it sets forward its distinction of superiority, it must still be tolerant
whom it is living along with.
It must have produced a government model for everything
has not produced a government model, then it is not something that has been practically implemented by the human beings.
It must have produced a government model.
So that other governments
can imitate, it can duplicate it can follow its example.
And that government model that is not only able to rule and regulate,
but also to withstand the test of time, Global Diversity and scientific progress, it must have all of those characteristics in its ability to govern.
It must have offered a human example,
for governments are made of what governments are made of societies societies are formed from what communities communities are formed from what families families are formed from what individuals, individuals are whole
So, this proposition, it must have offered a human example,
as a complete personality, not a human example, and philosophy or human example, in education or human example, in ethics or human example and science know a human example as a complete personality.
Capable of being followed, capable of being imitated, capable of being appreciated
by all human beings of every place, every time, every ethnic origin without exception and without exclusion.
You can see that as we build this criteria, we have already eliminated almost all the ideologies and isms.
It must contain guidance and inspiration,
on all aspects of human existence, it must contain guidance and inspiration on all aspects of human existence, including the physical, the intellectual, the moral, the economical, the social, the historical, the spiritual and the mundane.
It must have expounded upon and competently addressed the mystery and the purpose of creation.
Because without expounded upon that the question remains, From where have we come? And where are we going?
this fundamental question, if it's not answered, will not allow the human being to have in any way
to know his purpose or her purpose.
It must have expounded upon the mystery of creation and the existence
of the Creator, the author of existence, it has to answer the question, how did existence come about itself?
Because we all a part of existence.
We all here, even for a small time, even if we're only a thought we are here, how did this thought come about? How is it organized the way it is?
How is it has so much diversity, so much order? Where does the law come from?
Where's the science? What is the source of it? This question has to be answered.
It must answer
the purpose of life
and what lies ahead. For if we are here, they're certainly after, here
so if we're here, there has to be a hereafter.
And that proposition has got to address the here and the after.
Finally, that proposition,
it must have the grand jury, the power and the dignity and the respect to restore and rehabilitate societies after they have been debased, degenerated and devastated by time corruption or immorality, it must have this capacity.
So we ask ourselves the question, what kind of
system could this be?
Suddenly it is not communism. communism is dead. It's a finished system. It's a failed experiment.
It's not communism.
It's not socialism.
Certainly it is not capitalism,
for if we eliminate
the source of capital.
If there is an implosion
and a downfall of industry,
then capitalism will fall tomorrow.
All of his aspirations all of his institutions,
all of its governmental aspirations, all of his globalist ambitions. Without its currency, and without his industry, it will fall.
So it cannot be capitalism.
Is it? But could it be?
It is our responsibility today to reasonably point out that Islam, and only Islam as a religion, and a social system has provided this criteria, and therefore has qualified to be a candidate for our proposition.
We won't argue for or against any other religion or social system, not this evening.
We won't argue about that.
We'll only argue for
the proposition that we have tonight and that's Islam.
They have to argue for themselves. And they have to answer for themselves, not today. But on that day, when every human being an individual will answer and argue for themselves.
Our arguments, and our exposition today will be to prove reasonably so that Islam and only Islam can offer to the world a comprehensive constitution and solution
for the individual in their hearts and their minds,
for the families inside of their homes,
for the families that constitute neighborhoods, societies, nations, and ultimately the world.
Let us proceed
to see if Islam fulfills the criteria that we spoke about. And there were 10 in number.
Point number one.
We said that the first criteria is that such a proposition are such a system must set forward from its very beginning, the intent
to provide such a system of peace, isn't it this this was the first criteria.
as a system of life is the only system of life that in the definition of its meaning, it means peace, and surrender.
It is the only religion in the world.
That by definition,
gives its meaning for its system itself for Hinduism does not and Buddhism does not and Christianity does not.
Marxism did not. socialism did not and personalism does not. And capitalism does not and democracy does not they do not set forward by definition, the intent to provide world peace, comprehensive peace but the word Islam means
al Islam is Islam Allah Allah He the tauheed.
ls means complete surrender and submission to the author of creation and surrender of the will or the volition whether individual will or collective will to that creator, following and observing that creator with strict monotheism, not associated any partners.
And subjugating the wills of the human beings to the legislation and the order of that creator is the meaning of his lamb. So it said forward that purpose.
This same intent was on the mouths and the tongues of every prophet and messenger that came into this world, preaching to people just like yourselves.
prophets and messengers that came and spoke in the face of fear around
profits and messages that spoke in the face of many great tyrants, oppressors, powers superpowers if you want to call them
whose mouths are filled with dust today.
And whose records
are nothing but pages that we turn
and whose names
are only in small print
these prophets and messengers, they invited their societies to this proposition and that is what to surrender themselves to Almighty God not associating any partners with him
and to submit themselves and conform themselves to the legislation of Almighty God
and to do good, have good behavior and good conduct to the other human beings
and to offer worship to Almighty God which is pure as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran
in surah, la meclizine Allah for de una our up musala zakka was Delica. Dino Tajima.
The manual that Islam has offered to the world is the majestic court and
and for those of you
who are living, intelligent, intellectual, who are so unfortunate that you have never read the Koran.
that this should be the priority for you before you go to sleep tonight even.
Because if you knew that there was a book
that will provide you with the guidance and the clarity with your relationship with your Creator and give you the purpose of life. If you knew that there was a book that would lead you to a treasure, if you knew there was a book that would answer for you the purpose of life. If you knew that the book that could free you tonight, you would not sleep, you would read find that book and you would read it all night.
This is the Quran, such as the Quran.
And I invite As matter of fact those who are open heart and open minded I even challenge I dare you
to open your mind and open your heart and lay the Koran out and just read it without any preconditioning. So you will see what it is how it has affected billions of people throughout the world.
Billions of people throughout the world.
This manual that Islam has offered to the world is called the core n. It means the recital from God
the words from the Almighty, not the words from Mohammed Salatu was Salam.
Not the words of human beings, not the words of a government, not the word the words of a Rhodes Scholar, or Nobel Peace Prize person, not the words of some intellectual but the words of the Almighty to the human beings.
The speech of the Almighty revealed to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
Mohammed bin Abdullah sallallahu wasallam, more than 14 centuries ago.
And let me remind those who are the doubters
that this divine scripture has withstood the test of time.
This divine scripture was revealed more than 14 124 years ago.
Yet, it is the only documented scripture that makes the claim that having come from God through a prophet of his
that is intact today.
Memorize literally by millions of those who are the followers of that Prophet alayhi wa sallam.
And by the testimony of those who are not Muslims, is intact every word in every day exactly as it was preserved in the life of Mohammed Selassie. And while he was living,
and the only scripture
that was supervised in its entirety,
by the one whom it was revealed to, to those who he gave it to before he died.
a book of 6626 verses or more
that has been memorized by millions of human beings of all ethnic backgrounds who call themselves Muslims.
The phenomenon of this book is unparalleled. There's no other book in the whole world that has been memorized like that in its entirety and preserve for over 14 centuries. If there is another book and someone can produce it for us, we give you
$1,000 tonight before you leave.
And if you need time, you go find that book and come back. And we'll still give you 1000 you will never find it if you keep looking for 1000 years you won't find it.
is the manual of Islam.
It is the legislation of Islam. It is the word of the Almighty. It is the law for the human beings. It is the Constitution itself of Islam, examined open for the whole world to see.
This divine scripture has withstood the test of time and remain pure and unchanged from its origin. Yet, it contains a constitution which is detailed and comprehensive for guiding all the human beings under all conditions and all circumstances.
Criteria number three,
the message of the Quran is to the entire world. It is not for the Arabs,
not for the Asians not for the Africans, not for the Europeans that for the Chinese although
you will find those who have memorized the Quran those who claim they are Muslims from every ethnicity in the world.
Wherever they are human beings I guarantee you wherever you will find human beings there you will find a Muslim
because at least one of every kind of human being will have enough sense or enough piety to surrender to the Lord wants to hear the Quran and hear the life of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
So the message of the Quran is to the entire world Allah subhana wa Taala said to Mohammed Salah woman out of Southern Africa,
Allah subhanho wa Taala said
in the surah called Al Fatiha a surah a chapter which recited by all Muslims about 27 times a day Alhamdulillah lillahi Rabbil alameen. All praises is due for Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Who is the Sustainer, who is the Lord Who is the provider for whom Allah mean for the entire world.
Not just the world that we know about, not just the world that we see. But the macro worlds and the micro worlds, the evident world, the eminent worlds, the unseen worlds, the worlds inside a drop of water, the worlds inside of ourselves, he is the rub of all of those worlds.
The message of the Quran is to entire world without exclusion, without prejudice, without reference to any race, class, gender or ethnicity. Its message penetrates, and applies to all times and all places.
Point number four.
The Islamic system regulates and guides every area of human life.
Islam is not just
a religion of ritual. It just it doesn't just tell us how to wash and how to pray, and how to make charity and how to perform the pilgrimage.
And how to pray does a cat
how to fast it's not just a book of rituals. No
Islamic system regulates and guides every area of human life, from the personal to the family,
to the society up to including international affairs.
There is no area or issue of life that Islam has not covered through the illustration of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Lawson himself.
The miracle of the Quran
is that there is no question a human being can ask about life.
every aspect of life but the Quran has given the answer.
Not only has the Quran given an answer, but the Quran has directed us towards an example that illustrates for us that example that that answer.
I'd like to point out for you something, I think to be very significant.
Islam as a faith cultivates a deep and uncompromising loyalty to Almighty God
and a commitment to the reformation of the character. This is the
The core of Islam,
loyalty to God and reformation of the character.
It answers all the questions concerning the mystery of life.
So Islam is a faith. It is a faith. Islam as a worship and ritual, refined refines the human being by developing one God consciousness for the statement of Islam is La Ilaha Illa. Law,
the most powerful statement in the world law, the law, why because that statement negates all worship, all connection to anything that exists. anything tangible law is no worship, there's no object of worship in the law.
Except the Creator is the most powerful statement because it sets right the human consciousness and commitment. It tells them from the very beginning, who they are whom has created them, and what is their debt and their objective. Just like your name, the most important word given to you when you were born, and as you grew up is your name.
So So someone could call you and you can answer and respond.
But the most important
message that every human being is given is La Ilaha, Illallah.
And every human being, he should want to hear this word, the statement and repeated
law, law. Secondly, Muhammad Rasulullah
that is the human example, the human illustration, the person that you need to know, follow, imitate, that will give you all of the recesses, all of the answers for the human drama is Mohammed Rasulullah.
This to statements in the law, Muhammad Rasulullah is something easy to say,
but difficult for the arrogant,
difficult for the disobedient,
difficult for the criminals, difficult for the heedless. But for those who reflect
it is the most natural statement and it binds all the human beings together who call themselves Muslims.
Islam is a ritual refines the being by developing first God consciousness. Secondly, discipline, how discipline, the Muslim is ordered to pray five times a day. Why?
Because it's easy to understand.
If a human being has to stop their worldly occupations five times a day, it means what they're doing five times a day is more important than whatever else they're doing.
What other system of life commands that human beings to stop, three hours, every three hours, stop, at fixed and stayed at times, stop and worship the one who created you, and think about what you're doing and make an assessment of your life. What other system of life tells the human beings to do that. And what other system of life could ask the human beings or regulate them to do that.
A man who loves his wife, he doesn't even call her five times a day.
Amanda has a business. And he travels around the world. He doesn't call his office five times a day.
Children after they're raised by their parents, and they're sent off to school, and they graduate from school become successful, they don't call their parents five times a day.
But this religion, this system of life has ordered the human beings to do what, every single day of their life,
for seven minutes for 10 minutes to wash, to do a ceremonial washing.
And then after that, to bow themselves, and to say words of supplication, and to remember and worship the Creator who gave them life five times a day. This discipline is just like the discipline of the beating of the heart. This discipline is the same as the breathing of the lungs. This discipline is the same as the operation of the kidneys. This discipline is the same as how the brain functions, the blinking of the eye, that we have no power to do, but we have been given.
Islam is also a ritual. It's a discipline that teaches us through this simple discipline. And reminds us at all times who we are and who has created us and what is our objective
as a worshipers will create punctuality. Because the last panel Donna said concerning the prayer in authority cannot be Nina keytab and makuta. The prayer has been made
an obligation upon the human beings at what fixed and stayed at times, not what they desire. The Muslim don't pray when they feel like it.
They don't feel like they don't play when they have extra time. They don't pray after they finish their work.
They don't pray in their relaxation time. They don't pray only after they're successful after they cashed that check. They don't only pray when they're sick. No, they pray and fix and stain at times they interrupt their sleep, they interrupt their pleasure, they interrupt their work, they interrupt everything they're doing and fixed and stayed at times because the one who fixed it has more obligation than whatever else that we have inclined ourselves towards.
Islam is a ritual of purification. For the Muslim is known, every Muslim child will know
that after they use the toilet, even, they have to wash themselves.
Can you imagine
that seven out of eight people in the world, maybe, let's say, four out of six people in the world. Do you know when they use the toilet,
they don't feel any obligation to even wash themselves.
When they go to their tables to eat, they're going to wash their hands,
how they wash their hands when I go to eat. But after they defecate and urinate, they don't wash themselves.
A Muslim child knows before coming out of the toilet, to use water to wash themselves. Because this is a simple etiquette of the prophets, la Muslim,
not of Mohammed Salas in himself but of all the prophets of a Muslim. This is simple etiquette.
And purification is as simple as that. purification of the body.
promotes purification of the heart. And purification of the heart promotes purification of the mind. When you have a purified human being he has purified his intentions. When you have a purified intention, then you have people who can do what purify the environment. And so Islam is a ritual that teaches purification. Islam teaches charity, sacrifice, sacrifice of time, sacrifice of blood, sacrifice of money, sacrifice of energy because nothing comes without sacrifice.
Islam as a religion of absolutes and universal brotherhood, this is what the pilgrimage is about.
Anyone who has made the pilgrimage to Mecca can tell you it is the most profound human gathering in the world.
Where some 2 million people come together and are together for 12 to 14 days.
not fighting, not dancing, not singing, not drinking, not drugging,
not fornicating not community, adultery, not gambling, which is the case with all of the large gatherings like this.
But only worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. And even though they don't speak the same languages,
they are praying in the same language. And they are sleeping together and eating together and sharing a universal brotherhood together before they go back to their homes and don't even know each other's names. The hedge
Islam as a life system that answers every question concerning the human drama, and delivers a clear set of principles and ethics to direct and regulate human behavior. Islam as a constitution offers a legislation that is able to administer justice to the individual justice
because justice means equity. Equity can only be administered by law.
And who is the law giver?
human beings cannot give law to another human being.
Because they're both human beings. They're both spiral drops.
mixed with mud,
mixed with ambition. And given a little bit of intellect. How can these human beings dressed up sophisticated with machinery with institutions
All of a sudden become the law of givers of the world.
No, they are not the law givers. The law giver is the author of existence who has established a law.
And the law that the author of existence has established is the law for all human beings and the jinn.
And all the animals and all the creatures and the planets in the heavens, all of them follow that law by instinct, but it's only the human being.
That sperm drop mixed with some mud, with a little bit of ambition and intellect is the only one given
the choice to either rebel or to follow. Everything else follows the instinct.
I want to continue
Islam and only Islam
the criteria that we have set forward. The Islamic system regulates and guides all human life, from the personal to the family to the society and up to including international affairs. There is no area or issue of life that Islam is not covered through the illustration of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
has provided for the world,
a human example.
And the most profound and prolific and progressive civilization.
One has only to read the history to see that Islam has produced the most profound, prolific and progressive civilization, which at its height included the entire Arabian peninsula, Egypt, North and East Africa, the west coast of Africa, the mountains of China and India, from the priorities of Spain, to the Isles of Greece, Turkey, southern France, and all of Russia.
The only society that exhibited
this wide domination and who, for how long? Not 400 years, that's 200 years like the United States of America, but 4000 years.
Yeah, this Islam, the Quran, and the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
remains stable, unchanged in its ethics, its morals, its constitution, while adapting to the diverse social, cultural, and ethnic dynamics that have been encountered during more than 1000 years of expansion.
point six, we must remember that Islam produced a government model,
because we said that one of the criterias that this proposition must have produced what a government model
we must remember that Islam produced a government model in the city of Medina,
the city of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And we need to make a comment here.
This was a city that began
in austerity that means, out of nowhere,
no sophistication, no major institutions, no major resources in a place
They did not cross they had no concern for it. Nobody went there except the Arabs in their travels.
From this remote place in the desert,
these peoples of sheep desert, Bedouins we call them
established a city called Medina, the city of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
This city became the first Islamic State
two years before the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
became the first Islamic State for the world
to completely stay under the governance of the Quran and under the influence of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam.
From this small and dynamic state, this insignificant place in the geography of the world
Spread a civilization
that a few years later conquered Rome.
conquered Persia, conquered Byzantium conquered what we call Africa today. And these three superpowers that were in existence, they will overrun and they will conquered and subdued
in 32 years.
It has been firmly recorded that the Muslims conquered the known world, the whole world, and 50 years after the Quran was revealed
And the Muslims ruled that world for 1000 years.
So we have evidence of an Islamic government.
Not only did Islam provide an example of government, but it produced an impeccable and incomparable human example to the personality of the prophets, a lot of them for we already said that it would not be sufficient. If there was only a government, for we would have to know what is the dynamic core of that government.
It has to spring from an individual.
So not only did Islam provide an example of government, but it produced an impeccable and incomparable human example through the personality of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allahumma, Salli, ala Muhammad, Allah Allah, Mohammed
Ibrahim, Mohammed in mudgee, Allahumma barik, Allah, Mohammed, Mohammed Ibrahim, Ibrahim, if
there is not another human being in the annals of documented history, who can categorically be compared with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
And of course, this is a very bold challenge.
They have literally been 1000s of powerful human beings
who have exerted themselves upon civilization, whose lives have been documented whose biographies have been memorized. So this is a very bold statement to say, that no other human being in the annals of history
whose life has been documented can compare
categorically with that of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And what do we mean categorically, as a leader, as a teacher, as a guide for humanity, as a husband,
as a brother, as a statesman, as a father, as a businessman, as a companion, as a ruler, as a statesman, as a scholar, as a prophet and the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
No other human being life can compare was that of Mohammed Salatu was Salam.
And five major biographers of this age, we won't go further, five major biographies of this age.
And they're searching for the 100 great personalities of the world.
What do you think they found
five biographers, well renowned, who themselves are not Muslims? What do you think they said?
They said, undoubtedly, the person who has had the most profound impact upon humanity, categorically, we have to say is Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
Even though two of them were Christians, they could not say Jesus Christ.
Because they said even though Jesus Christ would have been our choice, he was not a father. He was not a husband. He was not a statesman and he was not a ruler. So five areas he did not compete with Mohammed Salah sim so we have to choose Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. But we don't need those historians or those biographers to tell us that because Allah subhanaw taala said, turn alaikum Pharaohs to the left also to live in Canada.
They certainly for you are human beings and are believers in the Messenger of Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah is
the most perfect and profound human example for anyone who believes in Allah subhanaw taala and fears and thinks about their meeting with him and they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala much and often for this challenge was made by last panel to Allah. And yes, he was sent as a loss upon losses woman out of Southern Africa Illa Allah Allah mean you will be central Mohammed Salah the same as what as a mercy for the whole of humanity.
His life has been documented in detail, more so than any other human
Point number eight through the Quran and the illustrious sunnah of Mohammed Salalah was now the Messenger of Allah. Every aspect of human life has been touched upon and qualified from the issues of personal hygiene to social behavior, the matters of marriage and divorce, the treatment of children and elders, the rules of economics and the ethics of business transactions, interpersonal behavior, morality, and social values. It sets the criteria for leadership, justice, government, taxation, trade, commerce and agriculture. It says for very clear legislation for Crimes and Punishments. It established a judicial system, a military system, a financial system, it contains a
very concise and detailed system of worship, and religious conduct it audit for the Muslims to learn from the lessons of history and to foster principles that reflected the wisdom of those lessons. It included the rules and principles for it, the educated and the illiterate, the wealthy and the poor, and integrated all of this into one single brotherhood.
has thoroughly and in a very unique way, expounded upon and explained the mystery and the phenomena of creation.
It has built its entire premise on the existence of the supreme authority of Almighty God the Quran says Allahu La Ilaha Illa hoo, ha Yo, La
La Houma la watch your man fill out of the Mandela de la Yama varying ID him woman, for whom whether you hate to be shot in enemy in lobby my share was my watch out. What are you Oh, man.
This is enough. Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us in the Quran,
where Allah subhanho wa Taala. His position with his creatures is that
he is the owner of the heavens and earth, the Sovereign of the heavens and earth, the ruler of the heavens and earth, the one who has caused it to be in existence, the one who has designed it, the one who is the architect, therefore he is the owner, he is the rock.
He has established his position over his creatures on his throne, befitting His Majesty.
So if anyone wants to go to the Quran, and read the 200 and 55th verse of the second Surah, they will see that the Quran has addressed
the mystery of creation and relationship between man and his creator.
It has built its entire premise on the existence of one supreme authority, Almighty God, the Originator of the heavens and earth.
It has established its authenticity as the word of a law. It has given all of the correct attributes of the Almighty alone. hula hula de la ilaha illa Allah Allah Muhammad Shahada, who were rough man, Rahim.
Anyone can go
through the 59 surah of the Quran.
And they can read the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. attributes that cannot be argued with attributes that are clear, well defined. We can go just to a short sudo of the Quran where Allah subhana wa Taala says,
Let me read it.
While I'm yaku, Khufu, one I'd say he Allah is one,
the eternal and the absolute, who is there that can call themselves eternal and absolute?
He begins not that is he doesn't give birth to anyone and he has not forgotten that is he did not come from the womb.
He is not anthropomorphic.
What am yaku for one, and there is not with him any tangible thing not even a thought that is like him.
Clear the Quran sets clear the relationship of Allah and His creation relationship as a Holic and
it establishes pure monotheism, sincere and pure worship and upright social conduct as a fundamental human behavior as the purpose of life. It sets forth the prospect of hereafter.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we'll ask you not to hire
The after the after, what comes after here will be better for you and more lasting. Therefore, let the one who has feel the presence, consciousness of a law do good actions for by chance when they meet Allah subhanho wa Taala they will get the reward for those actions for caveman get any other reward other than for what he has done, helped us our son in law.
It promised a heavenly paradise for those who obey Allah in another loop Ducky in America had another worker where he bought a robot Terada gassendi hairfall. Allah subhanho wa Taala gives the promises of the hereafter and he also gives the promises of the punishments for those who are heedless, rebellious.

it takes these eternal consequences and leave every individual to choose for themselves without compulsion, that extra half a D, no compulsion in religion, Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala he could have caused every human being here and every human being wherever they are, he could have caused all of us to submit without any choice, but the gift of a loss of data to the human beings that he gave us the choice
you have the choice to submit or to rebel, but the choice is a small choice.
Because whether you live 60 years or 160 years, it goes like that. And then what has the choice been?
Nothing. Because after all, as we said, You came from
a sperm drop,
mixed with mud, given some life, given some intellect and some ambition. And after that, you return back to nothing
wahala Cornell in Santa Fe Sunny, Tarquin through maharatna, who as well as fidi, Allah subhana wa Taala makes it clear that he created the moon and given him all the perfect qualities that he stands forward challenging his God, saying he has no need to answer him or to respond to him. But then he returns him after that back to the lowest of the low
where he dedicates on himself and urinates on himself and he cannot even move he can't even remember. And then he's put inside his grave, stinking
as far as feeding,
and then he's going to a situation which is worse than that. His grave, and then he's going to a situation worse than that. And if anybody wants to know who is the, the author of terror,
what I mean, you will see who is the author of terror. The Muslims are not the Office of terror. The author of terror is Allah subhanho wa Taala. That you will not see the terror until you come to the grave. And you will not see the real terror until after the grave, then you will see what terror is you have seen no terror.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Islam has the capacity to restore and rehabilitate human beings from the most debased and degenerate conditions through his unique and inspiring guidance.
I don't know the people here, personally, except a few. But I can say this,
that there are people sitting in this room.
Perhaps more than just a few.
Who yesterday, last week, last year, five years 10 years ago,
are some of the worst criminals that you would have met.
And if you would have met them on the street, dark street coming to this mass you might have been robbed.
Or you may have remembered them, selling drugs or prostituting or any kind of thing that you could think of, yes, some Muslims have done that, and have made Toba and come back to a loss of Panama to Allah and today, they are reformed human beings.
Islam is showing over and over it has the capacity to find human beings
There are in despair.
There are in criminal activity
that are corrupted, immoral, debased, degenerated, broke down, depressed,
and come into their lives and raise them up six months later, you would never know they're the same people.
Not only does Islam do that to human beat to individuals, but it doesn't to families. It doesn't just societies.
And Islam is resilient, so that a country
like Iraq, we have no power. Those of us sitting here today we have no power to stop. Whatever loss of panels Allah will permit to happen to that country tomorrow. We don't have any power. As the Imam said, the only power we have is the power of God. And if the Muslims knew if there are some Mata Ki amongst us, that is enough.
But we have this knowledge,
that if the whole of Iraq is wiped out tomorrow, we pray supanova Allah will save those people. But if they are wiped out,
Allah will build the new people and they will also be Muslims. And they will resist and they will outlive their invaders.
And what will happen is if enough Kaffirs go there and stay there, they will become Muslims to like Genghis Khan and his people.
no one knows from where the armies of Allah subhanho wa Taala will come. And the coup for Allah subhanho wa Taala has always given them arrogance, because of what they think they have and what they cannot see.
Our faith is not upon what we see not upon what they have. And we don't react from what they have know what we see. Our reaction is upon Allah subhana wa Tada. Who is what?
transito kita Minna la isla de la de
la fille dombey wakaba dish corbetta Toby's a deal the kabita toda la ilaha illa, who La Masia
our willingness upon the loss of panel data and our belief is also that a loss of Hannah Rotella will restore the Muslims who restore the individual who restore the family who restore the society, he will restore the government that worships Him, He will restore them.
Because Islam has that capacity, just like the rains will come and restore the earth after is dead. The guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala has restored human beings over and over.
Islam has the proven power to instill into a group of oppressed and abused people, a sense of survival and inevitably, the collective will to resist and alter their social conditions. I am proof of this. I am one of the 2.3 million
whose grandmothers and grandfathers were ex slaves.
Proud of the 80 million slaves distributed all over the Western world
who were the most oppressed and abused people bought and sold like cattle and sheep.
But by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala somebody
somebody do our was answered.
And I am the great great grandson of some Muslim I believe that may dryer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and so Allah subhanaw taala he took me out of the drug dens and the prisons, and the corrupt the streets of Harlem, New York
and made me Muslim, and gave me 11 children who are Muslims and 29 grandchildren who are Muslims.
And they are 2.3 million Muslims in America like myself.
So this is the proof that Islam can take the worst of the worst and make them what he wants to make them.
What other religion can do this, what are the system of life can do that.
Brothers and sisters.
Islam has always set forward the wheels of social change that can humble the most arrogant, reduce and replace the criminal transgressors, confront the industry of corruption and indecency and recapture the honor of innocent victims. Islam is the champion of the oppressed, the voice of liberation for those who are suffering Islam as the final
no hope of those whose lives have been devastated and desecrated
whose women have been raped,
and children who have been slaughtered. Islam has throughout the ages provided the balance of social justice to command what is right, and to prevent what is wrong.
Islam has provided the world with alternatives and choices to correct and address many problems.
We are seeing and witnessing great suffering tremendous corruption, and challenge oppression and a world that is consumed by war, greed, immorality and rebellion towards God and religion.
If this trend continues, and it is not checked, certainly, we can expect
a gradual disintegration of society and a paralysis of human civilization that could lead us to the unthinkable, the precipice of the total annihilation of the human race to the provocation of nuclear war.
I say to you, that Islam, and only Islam
has the answers. Islam has the formula, Islam has the solution that can resolve the state of the world crisis.
The answer that Islam has to the world condition is that it The world has to acknowledge, conform to and surrender their laws, their desires, their ambitions to the law, and the premise of the supreme authority of Almighty Allah.
The formula that Islam proposes is to have all of humanity
those non Muslims that are here, those that are anywhere else to say the statement, La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu. And because this is the first step on the way towards the liberation of the self.
This formula will give those that declare it the conviction and the focus to reshape and rebuild their lives towards the correct purpose of life. Islam has the solution to reconcile and intervene in the conflicts of the world, and to address the many crisis's that are affecting the world populations in the Quranic message and the wisdom of the Prophet Mohammed salaatu wa Salaam there is a medicine to cure the diseases that are ravaging the globe and threatening the rupture of modern civilization. The issue remains will the world and its leadership be humbled and wise enough to accept what Islam has to offer?
Those of you who are non Muslims
have to ask themselves a simple question. Can my system of life
can my present religion? Can my philosophy or my way of life meet this criteria?
Can I honestly address this challenge? Is it able to offer to the world a viable alternative to the present chaos?
Can it provide a real and proven solution for success and world peace? If not,
then we Muslims we propose that you accept Islam and that you accept our proposition
and that you help us to change this world.
Peace be upon those who follow the guidance was Solomonic.
So peninsula home will be undergoing a shadow in the land to stoke Fukunaga, Bullock, brothers and sisters, I want to thank you very much for your patient indulgence for listening to my proposition, and I asked you to please be patient. Those of you who can
those who have to leave, we asked you to do so quietly. Those who can remain for a few moments and responsible for what I said.
And I will receive some questions
on the topic.
And I want to say to you brothers and sisters that
as the amount mentioned to us,
we may not be able to change or alter the course
of eminent war
and the suffering that our brothers and sisters will experience in Iraq is the same suffering that our own children will experience sooner or later. Because the ambitions of the oppressor are not ambitious to one group of Muslims but to all
but I caution the Muslims especially the youth
to be careful
To be prudent, and to follow wisdom and not to react.
Because your immature reaction
may cause a premature suffering, where you live.
Young people should follow the wisdom of the old people.
Be patient, be prudent, be wise, be careful. And don't be reactionaries.
Don't allow journalists
don't allow ignorant people to push your button and cause you to do something, which is an Islamic.
The other thing is, keep this in mind.
Muslims are not permitted
to bite the hands of the people who feed them.
You're not allowed to wage war, or to disrespect even the people who provide you with asylum.
We don't have to agree with the culture. We don't have to follow the values or the principles but we have to obey the law. Because when the most non Muslims live among the Muslims, what do they have to do?
They have to obey the law.
We cannot say that non Muslim should obey the law in Muslim countries, but Muslims who live in the non Muslim countries, they don't have to obey the law. This is incorrect. A criminal is a criminal. And a Muslim that doesn't obey the law is also a criminal. And every law
that is given that does not undermine or subvert the law of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a law that you and I must follow. We are decent, law abiding, respectful and dignified human beings. And we will be able to resolve any challenge or any problem in a dignified and honorable way.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he suffered indignation, humiliation, he suffered torture, he suffered more than you and I, but he remained What?
dignified and patient?
The time would come and Allah will decide. But brothers and sisters reform yourselves, reform your families, and then your dryer will be accepted than a loss upon dela will send us his help.
The first question said Brother, you said there was an example of an Islamic State 1000 years question is why there is no example of Islamic State in the world at present?
I think the answer to that
is that there is no Islamic State within the Muslim individual.
You see, the Islamic State
is not a political state. It's not a government that doesn't where it begins, it begins in the state of your own behavior.
And because we Muslims, even though we talk the words of state philosophy, political ideology inside of us, we are not.
We are not giving forward to behavior, because the state of Islam begins in the behavior of the individual.
And I say to the brother or sister who gave me this question, and I'm sure 10 or 15 questions will come like this, about Islamic State about khilafah.
And what I have to say to the brothers and sisters who want to talk about Islamic State, and if you allow for if you are originally Australian, if you have a few are originally an Australian, and you became a Muslim. My suggestion is that you come to a scholar here in Australia and ask that scholar that question, because I'm not a scholar.
If you're not a native Australian, but that you came from another country, then I say to you, you don't have the right to talk about an Islamic State in Australia. But you should go to the state where you came from,
and set the state up there and reconcile the affairs there. Because the Muslims should not come from all over the world inside the western civilization talking about Islamic State, while the condition in their own worlds, lay in and rebels.
Go back to your grandmother and your grandfather and your family and the land that you left. Go back there and resolve that situation and let the people here resolve this situation. Then we will choose our people
It is here. And we will choose the leaders there. And we'll find out who should be the philosopher.
But why are we eating the bread?
and living off the taxes and the welfare of the non Muslims and then talking about an Islamic State?
It is not an illegitimate question. But it's a question of context. So let's put it in context. Those who are Australian who have this question, there's a scholar here. I understand there's a Mufti here, isn't it? He can answer that question better than me.
If you're not an Australian, then I say, go to the place of your origin, where there are scholars and mysteries because Allah subhanaw taala said, First Allah who earned the
income to lead. So if you don't know, if you're asking me a question that you think you know, already, why are you asking me?
And if there's a question that you don't know, and you sincere, still, why are you asking me? My statement? My question, my proposition wasn't about Islamic State.
It was about
producing a solution for world peace in the world. And peace can come into the world without there being a state.
The Islamic State is necessary, it should be there. But it is not a requirement for a man.
The outcome of the man is very clear. And one of them is not Islamic State.
Brother, what is the laws that the country or state we live in interfere intervene with Islamic Sharia? It seems like the same handwriting of the question that came about the Islamic State.
And and I don't, I don't want to be unfair to anybody. But again, the questions about Islamic State, and Sharia, and so forth and so on. I'm not going to answer these questions because they're out of context.
They do have some relationship, but they require someone who has a background in
someone who has a background in Sharia. And I was not introduced that way. So don't ask me 50 questions or tricky questions.
So molecule says, as a new revert, I have important question, what is stopping Muslims from having a Khalifa? Well, hamdulillah? I'll answer the question because it's a new revert. What's stopping us from having an Khalifa for those other new Muslim reverts who may not know halifa means a successor to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam doesn't mean the head of a Muslim state khilafah is a responsibility of political responsibility that should exist among the Muslims that restore and perpetuate the responsibility of the Messenger of Allah allows them to do what regulating the oma, why don't we have that? Go to the Hadith of the prophets lost him and see what he said about our
When we don't even have the substance of dryer for a lot to answer us, how will we have the substance to have clean air for
most of the people asking the questions about Islamic State and asking the question about khilafah asked me the question at first you
come to the Frazier prayer,
come to the Philippine Isha prayer, the men come to the prayer, get out of your bed, five o'clock in the morning and come to the salon and then ask the question, someone will be there to answer.
But you can't get out of your bed. What are you asking about?
And you should ask about the state of your own affairs that you can't get out of your house.
The Messenger of Allaah so lost him said you know the hypocrite from my alma easily to know them why they have a difficult to come into the budget and issue prayers.
So I say all of these kinds of questions that seem to be so profound.
Let's talk about the midterm budget.
What is the first step in achieving world peace? The first step, as I mentioned, is that Muslims need to care for their own behavior.
We need to give the message of the Quran from ourselves. Because when I
was asked by the people, what was the character of the profits and loss and what did she say?
His character was that of the core end.
So if you and I, if we're not giving down to the world, through our character, through our behavior, if your neighbors, if your coworkers if your colleagues, if your home boys if they don't know about Islam, through your couch,
They're not gonna know about Islam.
Someone asked how long did you study before becoming a shake?
Shake or shaky? I don't know which one. But people say [???] as a title of response of honor or respect. And, and, and and I think most like age, I mean, I got him in my beard, so maybe you can see. But I think it's more from age. I didn't study long and I don't have any particular certification to do what I do. I do what I do to kind of reform myself. And to keep clear about what I'm doing. That's what I do. So I don't want to give nobody an idea that I have some special extraordinary capabilities or background I don't.
Also, she said, What made you convert to Islam? Actually, Sister, I think is probably written by sister looks like maybe, actually, to be honest with you, Islam found me.
One that I was like looking at searching in some light came out of the sky didn't happen that way. Islam found me. I was searching for something I didn't know for what. But Islam found me. And when it found me, it was so clear
that I just think Allah subhanaw taala that he opened up my heart and He opened up my mind and not so much that I became such a good Muslim even
because I've been struggling to be a good Muslim, and to be worthy of being called the Muslim for 37 years. How far I've gotten a lot knows best.
We would like to keep in contact with you inshallah have some business cards, I'll make that available for whoever gave that and appreciate the compliment. What are the laws that the country or state this is a again, the person with the same handwriting?
Well, this is in Arabic.
Unfortunately, I can't be able to attend the intensive two day workshop which is going to be held and 22nd 23rd. Is there any other way to get the course materials? Yes, you can contact our brother from the one Islam
and they will provide you with all the course materials. And if you are a new revert Muslim,
the course materials is free for you.
And if there is a person who cannot afford to pay the tuition, honestly, they cannot afford to pay the tuition still come, inshallah we'll still do our best to accommodate you.
Someone said there's an example of Islamic State same handwriting.
Just as an aside
Yes, also, the brothers mentioned to me that the course is available, both on CD also in on in a booklet form. And it's also available on video in Charlotte's and it's available here today. For those who want to purchase it inshallah.
Someone said, I work with a disbeliever, who refuses to believe whatever he doesn't see. Also, we want to answer to everything that
affect you, we won't answer. Well,
if he says he doesn't believe in what is he doesn't believe anything cannot see, asked him to blow into his hand
and asked him, can he see his breath?
asked him, What does he think
about his own mind that he cannot see.
So I mean, there's so many things that we can tell a disbeliever, who only believes in what he can see.
There's so many things we can tell him, but sister or brother, whoever it is, I'm going to be here in sha Allah until Saturday. And unless Allah subhanaw taala has some different plans. If you can contact this unbeliever, and he needs some examples of the power of a law, the existence of a law or other things that he cannot see, I'm willing to sit down and talk with that person.
You mentioned you had 11 children, how were you able to raise them in such a society as exists today? To be honest with you, and very frank with you, My children are no different than some of the children of the Muslims that are here in Australia. And you know how difficult it is to raise children in the streets, while Brooklyn New York where I was raised. I was born in Harlem, but I was raised in Brooklyn, New York. Well, I'll tell you that the streets of Brooklyn New York will make the streets of Sydney or Melbourne or Brisbane seem like how
And it's only by the grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala
that people like myself that we are still Muslims.
And it's another phenomena from a loss upon ourselves and our children, in spite of the fact that they're not all what we wanted them to be. But none of them have chosen to become Christians. None of them have chosen to throw Islam away. So hamdulillah I said to you, I have 11 children and they are Muslims. I didn't say what kind of Muslims they are.
This up to a loss of panel data and up to our draw we make. But I asked the last panel $1 debt. I am one of nine children.
And only two of my sisters became a Muslim.
But my mother became a Muslim.
So if two of my sisters became a Muslim, and I became a Muslim, my mother became a Muslim, then I think my children, they have a good chance.
And then my grandchildren, I think inshallah they also have a good chance. So we all have hope from Allah subhanho wa Taala, but no guarantees of anything.
Dear brother, my question is about those sisters who call themselves Muslims, but dress and act like non Muslims? Well, let's say this, there are many Muslim men who also don't have the same dress restrictions as the women. And they act worse, but there are Muslims. So our sisters who don't dress properly, and maybe they don't act properly, they're still Muslims. Give them the advice. Be patient with them, show them where they can be educated, give them some alternatives. Maybe sometime his sister, she needs a strong husband.
Usually when you find a sister who is dressed half naked in the streets,
what do you think what kind of husband she has?
And maybe she doesn't have a husband. Maybe she doesn't have any guidance. But if she's a Muslim, still, she is sacred in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I rather to have the company
have a Muslim that commit sins than a pious Muslim.
So keep this in mind that even your sister who has not dressed properly, who you see some deficiency in him or her or your Muslim brother who is doing something wrong, don't condemn them.
stay next to them, become their friend. See if you can advise them, invite them to your home, show them the alternative. Show them Why talk to them, be kind to them. You may find that that sister, she needed a person like you to be her friend to be her advisor. Everyone else was condemning mine because of that she stayed away from the mosque. Because of that she stayed away from Islam. Because of that she wind up living with a cafo you don't know what her situation is, but if she's a Muslim,
she is due to a loss upon with others in any capital.
So take care of an advisor because she's your Muslim sister.
As a trainer will guide his athletes by giving them simple exercises to perform everyday what simple exercises can we perform daily to train our Eman and taqwa
First of all, Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran was stylu the slavery was solid. We're in LA Kabira to Illa Allah Allah hace first thing establish the salah
established the salon after that
have good manners. The message of Lawson Watson said
what they say yeah, he said
hi to Macintosh
Bill Hasina Tim Guha, ha ha the finance before looking handsome? Did he say that some
fear well, wherever you are, and follow up a bad deal with a good one that that will wipe it out and after that behave well towards the people. So this law
is the law and good behavior will establish a profound foundation of Eman and duck walk. So this what I advise you to do is show love simple things. And the reading of the court and someone said, if the Catholic government attacks the Islamic State, and you as a Muslim work and contribute to this government, which is killing
brothers and sisters, should you leave and go to an established Islamic State? Well, first of all,
I don't know brothers and sisters, maybe you can inform me. But I have visited about 37 countries and at least 23 of the Muslim countries and I didn't I didn't visit an Islamic State anywhere.
I mean not by definition of the word
Muslim states, some of them are aspiring to become Islamic, but in the sense of Islamic State Islamic government
according to the definition of Islam, and using the and using the, the example the paradigm of the prophets, Lawson or the hulafrog Rashidi, or some generation close to that, I don't know of any. But let's say this the message of the last the last name told us and this is very clear for tower if the is a Mufti that's here and
in Sydney, isn't it? This is the one let us allow for us. Okay, so ask him.
What is the fatwa about the Muslims living in the Catholic countries? for what reasons do they have to live here?
One, they come here because maybe they have some sickness them or their children or their wives that they cannot cure in the Muslim place. So they come here to do what to get that cure, and they go back.
or number two, they come here to seek some knowledge, which they cannot obtain in the Muslim country. And after they get it, they will go back and take that knowledge back to the Muslims. Or number three, they come here to do Dawa.
And so long as they're doing Dawa, they can stay.
So maybe all of us gotta leave.
Everyone has to ask themselves for what reason you were living in the Catholic country.
If it is for your living, your quality of life, then you will ask about this in front of the last panel with Ireland's not the issue of going to an Islamic State or not. And certainly, brothers and sisters, this whole idea, this whole idea that if in fact, the Kaffirs attack of Muslim state, should we go to war with the kaphas, where we live in? This is just preposterous.
This is just this is crazy. And this is criminal.
We don't want to use the names of individuals, because individuals don't take the responsibility off of you when you meet along the yamaki. Ama, you'll meet a lot by yourself.
Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam, did he act that way? Never.
Did the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam give the Muslims who themselves were under the jurisdiction of Kaffirs that he gives them the right to make walk into those cafes? Did he give them the right to do that? Never.
So brothers and sisters, I tell yourselves, don't be emotional. And Don't be foolish. And don't be led by the emotional and foolish.
And you may bring upon the Muslims through your improper actions,
more calamity and more fitna and more destruction
than you yourself may be able to handle. And Don't be foolish.
Don't be foolish. If you are living here yourself, enjoying the social welfare of the cafes, and eating from their taxes, going to the hospitals, you your wife, your children, going to their schools, working on their jobs, eating their bread, living under the umbrella of safety, carrying their passport, what are you talking about?
What are you talking about?
Muslims, be careful. And Don't be foolish. Don't be idealistic. Don't be trying to build bridges. And you're not even able. I mean, you live in in a coffee can and you try to build a bridge.
It doesn't make sense, brothers and sisters, let's be reasonable. And let's look to the song of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
Let's look to the song of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, we don't jump from the issues of the autocannon. Eman and the autocannon Islam. We don't jump from the from the small obligations that we are not doing. We don't jump from that all the way to building Islamic States. We don't do that. Again, the same question I put to the brother or sister who said wrote this here. Let's talk about this at the federal prayer.
And don't come to the Pfizer prayer tomorrow morning just to talk to me about that.
Because then your sincerity is wrong for coming to the federal prayer.
Come to the fudger prayer and establish the fudger prayer in your life for some time and read the Quran after every fudger prayer and then come to the Mufti. I mean this is a man that's here available to you. He's a Muslim, a scholar and Allah subhanaw taala said first Allahu Atletico
What do you think?
You think you got some energy? You got some ideas?
That's better than analysis. You know what the consult that person he's here. He prayed with us. Why are you asking me this question?
Don't understand it.
You must have asked him already and he must have already told you.
And you know, you know the Howdy. You know the hadith of when a man came to the zoo last the last time and asked the question, and the professor asked him gave him the hook him. Then after that that man came to Ramadan hottub and asked him the same question. Hmm. You remember this? Was Rama due to him?
Well, I don't have the capacity to do what he did.
But don't do that to me.
If you have a Mufti here, you have already asked that question, or you don't want to ask him. So why are you asking me?
I can't read this. You. I'm sorry. Someone said, Thank you for great.
I can't read the writing. Just to comment about the last thing you said, if it is for the sake of Muslims to fight back in any ways without giving the.
So please don't play with the Muslim mind. Okay, as the person who wrote this, I don't know who you are. But look, I'll tell you this much. I want to understand what you said. So before I leave, I'll talk to you personally. And if there's somebody here who feels that I didn't address that question properly, I won't hide from you. I'll be available here maybe for 20 minutes or so to talk with you. But again, I don't want to talk and argue and play no word games with anybody. Okay. So if that's what you want to do, or you already have some convictions and follow your convictions, but if you want my advice about something, I'll give you my advice. But if you just want to challenge and you
have your own convictions, and you have your own agenda, I didn't come here for that. So save your time and save my time.
It was said that,
on the radio that not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims. I answered that. I asked somebody on the radio. They said, All Muslims are terrorists, or I'm not almost the target all terrorists and Muslims is, is Timothy McVeigh. A Muslim? No, he's not.
We can go down the line. And we can ask is that is the IRA? Are they? Are they Muslims? No, they're not. is the is the is the is the ETA in Spain? Are they Muslims? No, they're not. I mean,
the other communists that invaded Afghanistan? Are they Muslims? No, they're not. For the matter of fact, the Western powers of the world have inflicted terror on the entire world as governmental terror and killed and decimated more than 10 million people. Are they Muslims? No, they're not. So obviously, the person who said this here, he's got some problems.
And don't really think that an idiot
you see a bigot.
A person who is ignorant. A person who is bias, a person that is close minded, a person whose heart is filled up with hatred, a person who wants to who propagate, he wants to propagate, he wants to provoke somebody to do something to a Muslim, or he wants to provoke a Muslim to do something to a non Muslim, and then what will happen?
So don't let people push our buttons. This person who said that statement, what's his name?
JOHN Locke, john laws. What do you want to set? He said he agrees. But the one Who said this? Yeah.
Yeah, anyway, he's a fool.
David Oldfield, I said, and what I'd like to do clearly while I'm here, and Sydney, whether in the middle of the night, or in the early part of the day, if this, if this foolish gentleman, whoever he is, has a website where he's slandering Muslims and saying things, whatever his real concerns are, I would like him to give to me 10 questions that he feels that have defiled the profits, a lot of them are the file this lamb or whatever it is, give me 10 questions, and then allow me to answer those questions in his face on television. That's all.
Just give me 10 questions, that you have the most profound contradictions you find in the Quran, or in the prophets of Allah, Islam, or about Muslims. 10 that's all the most profound, and let me answer you those questions on TV. So that the whole world the whole of Australia will see how foolish your questions are. Then after that, you can close down your website.
What is the best approach when approaching the kuffaar again, I just say to you, a good
behavior because you don't know if they're Christians. You don't know if the Jewish no no if they're atheists, you know, they're communists, you know who they are. And our Dallas for everybody, including lesbians and homosexuals and all those people to our Dallas to them to because they can reform themselves and they can become Muslims because they're human beings. So before you go to people talking to him about Islam, find out who you're talking to
find out who you're talking to first develop a relationship with somebody, don't just go out in the street meeting people saying My name is Khalid I'm a Muslim, would you like to read this pamphlet become a Muslim?
that's that's that's that's the way of those people ride on those bicycles with the backpack.
We're not like that. That's not our our, our dow is the Dow of personal behavior. somebody that knows you that works with you that lives near you that goes to school with you will more suitably
take something from you
than from somebody that you don't know. So in the first part of the prophets last names giving Dawa, who the Lord Tell him to give Dawa, to the Accra Dean, wasn't it? The neighbors, his family? those around him those who knew him? Not people that don't know you. So first established your relationship of behavior?
Brother solid, are we going to die like this? What should we do? We use our unfortunate to be born in this time, but we cannot die as losers. Please give me some guidelines so we could succeed. Allah subhanaw taala didn't call us losers? And what makes us feel so depressed that we think that?
Are we thinking to ourselves that because war is imminent in Iraq, that all the Muslims are going to be killed, that all the Muslims are going to be attacked, that we don't have a job to do No, don't have don't have suicide than the profit loss. Instead, the believer The moment he doesn't have done, what is so advanced, it means bad thinking. Because bad thinking is from shape on.
The Muslim has positive done. We are optimist.
We think powerful, we think positive, we think good things.
So that person who wrote this, someone needs to sit down and talk to this young person. Someone needs to talk to the young person tonight, whoever it is the young person who asked this question, you need to come to me so I can direct you to somebody and see if I can sit with you and talk with you. Because if you are thinking this way, you might be a ticking bomb.
And we don't want you to explode in your own face.
So come forward, and in a discreet way, let me know who you are. So I can just direct you to someone who can assist you with this particular question in sha Allah.
Did you know that suicide is among the three leading causes of death in the western developed world? I said, the western developed world
where the semblance and the trappings
are the most preeminent.
After all this time,
and the people walk away from that grave.
How about that person in the grave? What's happening?
Because you know, and I know that death is almost like sleeping.
But that's the only theologically and historically adequate position with respect to Jesus to recognize him, not only as a prophet Allah, certainly that, but as himself, the divine Son of God.
at all it that a failure within Islam to recognize Jesus, as the divine Son of God has significant consequences for Muslim faith and practice. And you show us please, that historical evidence of a tampering or forgery that was so messy, that the entire Christian world was duped without question, because in the past, throughout church history, we've always had controversies. We've had people who have denied certain parts of the Scriptures, and they have historically recorded marcion in the second century denied the Old Testament as a Christian and certain parts of the New Testament there was a controversy
People are posting writings were written argument debate back and forth. Here we find no such historical evidence or manuscript evidence of forgery, from the church fathers, from the councils that were held in nicea, whether in the fourth century or the fifth century? Or is it taken from the mouth of Jesus Christ himself? This is what we want to discuss. We believe that Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ, an immaculate woman, a pure woman, but not a woman who herself was God nor venerated, to be worshipped, nor giving birth to a god man, man, God, three gods or someone to be worshipped, but that she gave birth as God ordered her to do so. And that Jesus was like the birth
of Adam. Only it was less complicated. Adam had no father No mother, at least Jesus had a mother
with a man goes into the store down the street, and the Muslim is selling her on demand so what you're doing brothers Hannah law
This is fancier you selling
this alcohol you selling?
This is nicer gambling that you're doing. You facilitating for what his?
What you're doing brothers? What are you standing on the corner selling drugs? What are you doing? They tell him, you don't get out there we shoot you too.
And for our young people that are in the streets,
we don't like you to be in the streets.
We don't like who you're with in the streets. We don't like what you're doing in the streets. We don't like what it does to the image of Islam, but we love you.
We love you. You are the sons of Islam and the daughters of Islam and the future of Islam and inshallah to Allah among you. There is an apple though, and there is a holiday
is that there's no question a human being can ask about life.
any aspect of life but the Quran has given the answer.
Not only is the Quran given an answer, but the Quran has directed us towards an example that illustrates for us that example that that answer.
Brian at this point now My advice for you is that what you should continue to do is you should move on from that 1315 year old experience, to the experience where you are right now and understand that there's a whole nother stage. There's no ceiling on this issue. He started bringing no ceiling, he bought a ticket. And the Holy Spirit that you're talking about that was Gabriel.
So we're not followers of Gabriel, we follow that next prophet that also jabril came to and brought that scripture, you should read the quote and you should read the life of the Prophet peace and blessings upon them and not be afraid of it.
Okay, and by doing so, you may find out that the natural progression of where you are right now is Islam. That's just my advice to you.
Take it off the shelf and look at it not for its content. Look at the quality the Christmas. Look at the advancement. Look at the graphics. Look at the color. Listen to the sound
and for the Muslims.
Go to the bookstores and see what's available their inferior treasure.
So the Kufa they are making the investment to make trash superior. But the Muslims, they're not making any investment to make the treasure.
Better than the trash.
