00:00:11--> 00:00:51

I don't believe in any form of racism. I don't believe in any form of discrimination or segregation. I believe in Islam, I'm a Muslim. And there's nothing wrong with being a being a Muslim. Nothing wrong with the religion of Islam that just teaches us to believe in Allah as the God and those of you who are Christians, probably leaving the same guy. Because I think you believe in the God who created the universe. And that's the one we believe in the one who created the universe, the only difference being, you call him God and, and we call him Allah. Just call him Jehovah. If you could understand Hebrew, you'd probably call him Jehovah to even understand Arabic You probably call him

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

Allah.

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

For his tremendous blessings.

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

We remember that the melodica

00:01:22--> 00:01:33

the statement they made out of Billahi min ash shaytani r Rajim sapan aka la Mulana in Ghana, in Accra, Angela Lima Hakeem.

00:01:38--> 00:01:45

Glory be to Allah subhanho wa Taala of knowledge we have none except what

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

he has taught us indeed, or loss on what other you are animal Hakeem.

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

And we remember

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

that all praises are for loss upon or to Allah who has guided us.

00:02:06--> 00:02:12

And without his guidance, we could never have been guided.

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

And we remember when we speak about any Muslim

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

from the past or the present, or the future.

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

that no one has made this religion great.

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

But this religion has made everyone that has followed it. Great.

00:02:42--> 00:02:51

So the greatness is for Allah subhanho wa Taala and appraises for loss of Panama to Allah and we are not here to give any praise or to bestow any greatness upon anyone.

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

And if there's anyone whom we have some obligation,

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

it is Mohammed Salatu was Salam.

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

Because Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

in Allahu Allah eager to who you saguna Allah nebby

00:03:13--> 00:03:18

Yeah, you Allah Dena amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam was Lima.

00:03:19--> 00:03:25

Allah Allahumma salli ala Sayidina Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:03:29--> 00:03:33

Dear brothers and sisters. Our discussion this evening is about

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

a man whom the world knows as Malcolm X.

00:03:44--> 00:03:44

However,

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

I want to be very clear.

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

I personally have no interest

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

in Malcolm X at all.

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

Malcolm X was a Kaffir

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

Malcolm X was a Muslim.

00:04:10--> 00:04:18

Malcolm X was a racist, a nationalist, a man who said things about Allah subhanho wa Taala, which he had no right to say.

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

Yes, he was a reformed criminal.

00:04:25--> 00:04:35

But even after he was reformed in his conduct, he was still saying things about Allah subhanaw taala which he had no right to say because Malcolm X was j hidden.

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

But the man

00:04:41--> 00:04:52

who I need to speak about, his name is Al Hajj, Malik Chavez, but we can't speak about him unless we come through Malcolm X.

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

So let us be clear.

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

Malcolm X

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

Live life,

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

which is impressive for non Muslims. But for us Muslims, we have no concern about his life, except three months before Allah subhanho wa Taala took his life

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

three months before Allah subhanaw taala took his life

00:05:18--> 00:05:30

by Allah subhanho wa Taala his guidance and by his determination, Allah subhanaw taala showed this man a new mission and gave him a new message.

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

And it is these three months

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

that we are concerned about and only those three months.

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

So anyone who came to hear about Malcolm X

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

because of the movies or the books,

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

or some other foolish impressions you heard about,

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

then you should know

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

that this man Malcolm X has nothing to do with Islam.

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

But alas, pinata Allah, Masha.

00:06:05--> 00:06:13

Allah subhanaw taala he lifts up whom he pleases and guides them and he throws down whomever he pleases, and leave them to stray.

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

So we want to talk about

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

Malcolm X the man

00:06:25--> 00:06:29

his mission, and his message that will lead us

00:06:30--> 00:06:35

to El Hajj, Malik Chavez, the name he took,

00:06:37--> 00:06:45

after he went to Mecca, and made Toba and made hides, and was purified and became guided.

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

And after that, a loss upon water taala made him a beacon of light that produced nearly 3 million Muslims in America.

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

That's what you should know about this three month old Muslim

00:07:08--> 00:07:11

that he has 3 million grandchildren.

00:07:13--> 00:07:23

Who because of his sacrifice, or as a result of some of his sacrifice, he opened up a door that brought Islam into America

00:07:24--> 00:07:44

by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is the proof that Allah subhanaw taala he can bring his Deen and he can bring his guidance into this world, even by an individual who themselves had very small amount of knowledge.

00:07:48--> 00:07:54

Alhaji Malik Chavez when he died, he barely knew how to recite the kalama.

00:07:55--> 00:08:00

Perhaps he did not know how to recite Al Fatiha.

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

Suddenly, he did not have enough time to know

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

how to perform his salon.

00:08:11--> 00:08:15

So obviously, he didn't know Arabic.

00:08:16--> 00:08:25

Obviously, he didn't know. We obviously he didn't know aqeedah. He didn't know Sierra, he didn't know

00:08:26--> 00:08:31

all the things that people say, if you want to be a good Muslim, you got to know all these things.

00:08:33--> 00:08:37

Yes, all these things are good things to fortify us and give us the equipment.

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

But one doesn't have to have all of that to have he men.

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

And if the man have a brand new Muslim,

00:08:49--> 00:09:02

who only knew how to say Allahu Akbar, or La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and that's all he knew. And after that, a lot took his life, maybe that sacrifice was enough

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

to be a platform for a man for 3 million people.

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

Whereas there are people who are holding books of aqeedah books,

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

books of Hadith, books of Tafseer

00:09:21--> 00:09:40

Mashallah they have, they have commanded the book of civil way, one of the most eloquent books of Arabic language. They have graduated from the universities, they are students of knowledge, but maybe in their whole life, they did not produce even 30 shaders.

00:09:41--> 00:09:45

We say they are rewarded with a loss of $1 for what they get.

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

And on the other hand, the reward

00:09:50--> 00:09:57

is from Allah subhanaw taala who cause even one person to enter Islam from their hands and the prophets, a lot of them

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

whosoever

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

is gifted or blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:06--> 00:10:15

to cause one person to enter Islam through their hands, the prophets lost him said Hiram, in one place. Muhammad

00:10:17--> 00:10:24

is better for them. Then red camels, maybe like brand new land rover.

00:10:28--> 00:10:44

Better, is it better for you then a Mercedes Rolls Royce or in another rewire Hiram minute Jr, while Murphy has a better for you than the whole dunya. And what is it in it? One person, just one person.

00:10:46--> 00:10:56

If every Muslim here, having a man could give one Shahada a year, we will command this whole city here in a matter of five years.

00:10:57--> 00:11:01

One chat, we didn't say 10 3051.

00:11:02--> 00:11:13

Your neighbor, your colleague, your coworker, the person who you do business with the people who see you in the street all the time, your professor in the School, one a year.

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

So in 10 years, you will give 10 and if there's 1000 here, this is 10,000. If that 10,000 people took Shahada from the Muslims, which is here

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

10,000, the next year,

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

will take Shahada from them.

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

Because last year, last year,

00:11:35--> 00:11:40

100,000 people into Islam from the UK and from North America alone

00:11:42--> 00:11:49

100,000. And I tell you brothers, that 80,000 of them took the Shahada from a new Muslim

00:11:54--> 00:12:02

80,000 took Shahada from a new Muslim 15,000 took the Shahada from a newly practicing Muslim,

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

and 5000. Maybe they took Shahada from some students have knowledge or whatever low honor.

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

And every now and then we hear that a scholar, a scholar, he gives a header to someone himself.

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

We don't say anything is wrong with that, we only say

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

the scholars, they are sitting, waiting for us to bring the people to them.

00:12:31--> 00:12:49

But some of the people who have less knowledge, we are going out and taking the knowledge from the scholars to those people. May Allah reward all of us, the scholars, the students of knowledge, the brothers who are in the street, the brothers who are on the edge, all of us all together in sha Allah.

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

And we must also say

00:12:54--> 00:13:08

from this 100,000 people who entered Islam 79,000 from America, and over 28,000 from the UK, and we don't know maybe 3000 or 4000 from the from Australia.

00:13:10--> 00:13:14

Seven six to seven of them are women.

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

Six or seven out of every 10 are women

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

in the last three months,

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

Mashallah, we delivered about 279 Shahada

00:13:36--> 00:13:41

183 of the 100 279 women.

00:13:44--> 00:13:50

So for some reason, a loss upon what Allah is attracting the hearts and the minds of women towards Islam faster than the men.

00:13:53--> 00:13:57

So maybe this is to make up for the male chauvinism.

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

So we want to speak about this man, a controversial personality, whose autobiography is in nearly every library in the modern world.

00:14:11--> 00:14:17

A person whose name is associated with change, resistance and sacrifice.

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

A man who dropped out of school in the sixth grade,

00:14:22--> 00:14:28

but received an honorary PhD from Harvard Law School in Boston, Massachusetts.

00:14:29--> 00:14:35

An individual whom heads of state presidents Chairman,

00:14:36--> 00:14:45

Kings, intellectuals and educators, they quote him concerning ethics, commitment, and inspiration.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

A man, a minister, a missionary with a powerful message, who embraced and declared the kalama La Ilaha Illa law

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

Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only three months before he was made Shaheed

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

Who is this man?

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

What was his mission?

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

And what was his actual message?

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

Malcolm X was born Malcolm little, that was his name.

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

Malcolm Leto.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

He was born in Omaha, Nebraska,

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

somewhere in the Midwest of the United States.

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

His father

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

was a Baptist minister

00:15:41--> 00:15:46

and a political activists, a follow of a man called Marcus Garvey.

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

His mother

00:15:53--> 00:15:54

was a school teacher.

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

Malcolm saw his father killed

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

by European white racist

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

people who call themselves the KKK Ku Klux Klan.

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

Similar to people who call themselves neo nazis or

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

Aryan Brotherhood or

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

other crazy names that people get themselves to

00:16:31--> 00:16:34

put pride into their color, another form of Jamelia

00:16:36--> 00:16:40

and because his father was a proud man and a resistant man

00:16:43--> 00:16:47

at a time when black people were treated like animals.

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

His father stood up.

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

And he did not bow down.

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

And so one night,

00:16:59--> 00:17:04

they came to burn his house down. And he defended his family.

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

And they took him

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

out to a railroad track,

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

and tied him to the railroad track until the train came and then after that, let him go until the train severed his head. So Malcolm saw his father

00:17:22--> 00:17:31

decapitated this way by these white racists. So that's what put in his heart from the beginning hatred against white people.

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

After that, Malcolm's mother

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

and the trauma

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

and mental stress was committed to a

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

insane asylum.

00:17:48--> 00:17:53

And so at the age of nine, Malcolm became an orphan.

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

And he dropped out of school at 12. That's the sixth grade

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

he moved to a city called Detroit.

00:18:03--> 00:18:06

And while he was in Detroit, Malcolm

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

dealt with the science of the streets.

00:18:12--> 00:18:16

And a lot of you brothers sitting here tonight, you know, what the science of the streets is?

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

swinging

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

making money anywhere you can

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

buy and wherever you can from the same haraam money.

00:18:33--> 00:18:38

selling drugs, selling women using drugs, shooting people

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

become gangsters.

00:18:45--> 00:18:53

crime has never changed. crime has the same face. crime has Is it done in the same place in the same manner, it's just a different calendar.

00:18:57--> 00:19:06

Unlike Now, most of those who chose or who choose this way, you will wind up soon in two places. If you don't make Toba.

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

You will wind up in the prison.

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

If Allah is merciful to you,

00:19:14--> 00:19:23

you will wake up and practice Islam then come back out and find a new life for yourself. Or if a law is not merciful, you will wind up in an early grave.

00:19:26--> 00:19:31

You don't have to believe me, you can think that you're going to be an exception and you're just a fool.

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

So Malcolm.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

After he left Detroit, he went to Boston.

00:19:43--> 00:19:47

Big gangster selling lots of drugs, pimping, lots of women.

00:19:50--> 00:19:57

Living life as a gangster. And at 19 years old, Malcolm got his first taste. 15 years

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

15 years into prison.

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

In the prison by the grace of Allah subhanho wa Taala he reformed his calendar.

00:20:09--> 00:20:12

Magnum was a drinker, Malcolm was a drunkard.

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

Malcolm was a drug seller, Malcolm was a criminal.

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

While in prison,

00:20:21--> 00:20:24

he met some people who call themselves the Nation of Islam.

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

Now they will not Muslims, but that's what they call themselves Nation of Islam.

00:20:33--> 00:20:38

I say they're not Muslims, because in their own newspaper today, they're the same people.

00:20:40--> 00:20:46

They say a law came in the form of a man in 1935.

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

a black man

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

and his name was master w fraud.

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

So let's go for

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

that. Sure.

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

And they say that this man master who rod who was supposed to be aligned, the person

00:21:06--> 00:21:13

nominated and selected Elijah poo, or Elijah Muhammad as his messenger and prophet.

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

That's another form of gopher and another form of shirt. So Kufa Cooper shirt shirt.

00:21:24--> 00:21:26

So Elijah Muhammad said

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

that there was no paradise,

00:21:33--> 00:21:38

no hereafter, another form of cover another form of shooting.

00:21:41--> 00:21:53

He said that Paradise is in this life. And Hellfire is in this life. And resurrection is only in the mind. So this is called for again. So kafir, kafir, kafir, kafir

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

and he said that the Quran

00:22:02--> 00:22:15

was given to him by Allah, Master w four are to be interpreted for this time, only for a black man, another form of copper, so five times copper. So there are pure kaphas.

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

The man called louis farrakhan minister louis farrakhan,

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

no doubt,

00:22:26--> 00:22:34

no doubt he is the student and the follower of Elijah Muhammad and he has built

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

a platform upon that same platform

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

and we have to give credit where credit is due.

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

They are Kaffirs, pure Kaffirs, because they are still saying today exactly what Elijah Muhammad said in 1945.

00:22:50--> 00:22:53

They are still saying today in their newspaper,

00:22:54--> 00:23:00

anyone can go to www Nation of Islam or www.

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

The final call,

00:23:10--> 00:23:23

go to www the final call, or www the Nation of Islam. And you will see that they say today exactly what Elijah Muhammad said 1945 no difference, even though

00:23:24--> 00:23:28

Minister Farrakhan as he calls himself makes hides maybe every five years.

00:23:30--> 00:23:43

Even though his followers, he's taking with him every year 150 250 350 of his followers to Hajj every year, and he's been invited to make Hajj by the people in Saudi Arabia. I don't know why.

00:23:46--> 00:23:49

I don't know why. He's the guest of the government.

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

And they're making Hajj every year. And every single year in Chicago, he has something called Savior's day.

00:23:59--> 00:24:03

In Chicago, this is their, their big day, this is their age.

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

And every year,

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

the Azhar University sends their representative to save his day.

00:24:14--> 00:24:19

I'm not blaming the university, I'm saying the biggest shift from that is that every year

00:24:21--> 00:24:25

one of the amendments from the hudon will be there in Chicago every year.

00:24:27--> 00:24:32

The leaders of the biggest Islamic organizations in America will be there every year.

00:24:34--> 00:24:43

Why those people are supporting Minister Farrakhan? why they're praying with him why they're sitting with him why they are giving him credence, I don't know.

00:24:44--> 00:24:49

But Allah is the witness. You can get it on DVD.

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

And he says, clearly, if I'm wrong,

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

why is the whole Muslim world represented representatives here with me today?

00:25:01--> 00:25:15

So, this is one of the reasons now the villa that his organization continues because it is given the support and the credence and recognition by some of the biggest organizations Muslim organizations in the world.

00:25:16--> 00:26:02

Although they are pure Kaffirs, meaning minister louis farrakhan and his group, those who are supporting him, they are not Kaffirs. They are Muslims. Why they are supporting why they're recognizing Allahu Allah. It's not for me to say, but I have to make the record straight. Khalid didn't say this. You can go to www Nation of Islam. www. final call and you will see the Savior's day put it in their saviors day Nation of Islam, and you will see all the videos and you will see all the shoe from the bottom from Jordan Mufti from Lebanon, the Mufti from Jordan, the Mufti from so on. So the Mufti from this place, the man of the harem, the head of Islam, the head of Aigner,

00:26:02--> 00:26:09

the head of all the Islamic organizations, they are there with him shaking hands and embracing him like he is a Muslim.

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

One Oh,

00:26:13--> 00:26:25

in spite of that, his organization, it is not growing. Because one of the beautiful things about Islam is that a liar is a liar.

00:26:27--> 00:26:30

And his lie does not grow after him.

00:26:31--> 00:26:59

It is a stays where it is or it becomes smaller and smaller, but our profit is the profit. And his message goes after him better than it was even while he was living. So a loss upon Allah has caused this nation to grow the real Islamic nation, and he has caused the nation of the liar to be as it is. And when he and when farrakhan dies, that lie will become smaller and smaller until it rots away.

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

And we asked a lot, that those people who are following him with sincerity,

00:27:05--> 00:27:07

that they will become Muslims inshallah.

00:27:09--> 00:27:22

We have to give credit, however, that Elijah Muhammad, although he was a liar, although he was not a prophet, although he made said lies about Allah subhanaw taala. He was a social reformer.

00:27:23--> 00:27:35

What is a social reformer, a social reformer is a man who helps people to come from the lowest form of social degradation until they come to a level of self esteem.

00:27:36--> 00:28:00

Elijah Muhammad was successful, and causing men and women who were drunk it drug addicts, prostitutes, pimps, criminals, he was able to reform them and clean them up and make them into productive people, fathers, mothers, businessmen, and distinguished people and respectful people, men like Malcolm

00:28:03--> 00:28:04

because Malcolm

00:28:05--> 00:28:09

was not the only one like himself. This is what you need to know.

00:28:11--> 00:28:17

There were 1000s of people that was like Malcolm X, but they did not have his voice.

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

A lot didn't give them the same gift.

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

But their conviction, their sincerity, their social reform, was just like Malcolm

00:28:30--> 00:28:48

because they said Islam, because they said could end because they stopped drinking, because they stopped drugging. You see, when a person stopped drinking and drugging and fornicating and stealing and lying, and all these kinds of things, they become clear headed, clear hearted,

00:28:49--> 00:28:52

but Allah subhanho wa Taala because they were making sure

00:28:53--> 00:29:02

he never gave them the whole day. He never gave them the Huda and there are many people, Jehovah Witness, they'll clean people.

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

Jehovah Witness clean people, but they are mushrikeen

00:29:10--> 00:29:13

the moments clean people mushrikeen

00:29:15--> 00:29:18

seven day event is clean people mushrikeen

00:29:19--> 00:29:39

so many of the people that are clean their morals, they don't steal, they don't lie. They love God they do this but Allah subhanaw taala says in the levina cafaro Ellen kitabi Well, Mr. Kenan de nada, Johanna Mahajan, if you have hula Ito, Sharon Maria in alladhina amanu

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

la eco highroad Maria, they assembled Maria because they are making shirt against the loss of Panama Diana and they are lying against Allah subhanaw taala and they're lying about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they have polluted the deen of Allah subhanaw taala so Allah has polluted their lives and he prepared for them.

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

jahannam even though we might think they are pious.

00:30:05--> 00:30:08

So, Malcolm went to prison.

00:30:10--> 00:30:15

While he was in prison, he became part of the Nation of Islam.

00:30:16--> 00:30:20

Malcolm stayed in prison, not 15 years, but nine years.

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

And when Malcolm came out of prison

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

mentally, he was powerful.

00:30:29--> 00:30:31

Even though I mentioned

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

that he dropped out of school in the sixth grade,

00:30:37--> 00:30:41

Malcolm said that after he cleaned up his mind, and cleaned up his body

00:30:43--> 00:31:13

after he gave up cursing, smoking, drinking, after he pledged his life, to Elijah Muhammad, and considered himself to be a Muslim, he said, I never lied after that. I never stole after that I never cursed after that. I never lusted for any women. After that. I never drank, I never drunk, I never smoke another cigarette after that day. He said, and I never gambled anymore. Because I saw myself to be a servant of a law and a soldier.

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

With that mentality, he began to read on his own. The first thing that Malcolm did, is that in a period of four years, he memorized the entire dictionary.

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

Can you imagine a man memorizing the entire dictionary

00:31:36--> 00:31:39

23 or 27,000 words with the definition?

00:31:42--> 00:31:48

It will in four years, four times 365. You see that's about 1500 days.

00:31:51--> 00:31:55

1500 days. So if you've memorized 20 words a day, that's what he did.

00:31:56--> 00:31:59

He didn't memorize Quran. He didn't get no Baraka for it.

00:32:01--> 00:32:05

But nobody in here, memorize 100 words in the dictionary.

00:32:06--> 00:32:21

This man wanted to learn the language of the enemy. He said the enemy defeats us through language. So I want to defeat them in their language. So the first thing I want to do is I want to memorize the whole dictionary because that's their language.

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

After he did that, Malcolm said, I finished I read, and I wrote essays, on 172 books.

00:32:35--> 00:32:57

All the top books that all the people read in the colleges and universities, about science, about math, about history, about botany, about biology, about sociology, about psychology, about different people. He said he read it and he wrote, so when Malcolm got out, Malcolm was a walking classroom.

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

He was the spokesman for Elijah Muhammad.

00:33:07--> 00:33:16

And in a period after Malcolm got out and a period of six years, Malcolm built a national organization of over 112 messages.

00:33:19--> 00:33:21

They didn't call the message they call them temples.

00:33:25--> 00:33:28

Mohammed's temples of Islam he called them

00:33:29--> 00:33:31

112 all over the country.

00:33:36--> 00:33:38

He built a national newspaper

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

called Muhammad speaks.

00:33:42--> 00:33:45

A newspaper that is still running today.

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

From 1954.

00:33:49--> 00:33:59

Until now, how many years is that 50 years this newspaper that he established, is still running today with a different name. It's called the final call.

00:34:02--> 00:34:11

So from a seasonal criminal, can man drug sell a pimp prison inmate angry and hostile man a racist

00:34:13--> 00:34:25

to a principled, disciplined, courteous, non smoking, non drinking, non drugging, man of honor, man of integrity, the Ideal Husband,

00:34:27--> 00:34:47

the brother, the vigilant community activists, the articulate speaker, the self appointed international ambassador of the African Americans, and finally, and most important, in the last three months of his life, a lot allowed him to discover the real Islam.

00:34:49--> 00:34:52

And he was the kind of man that was searching for the truth.

00:34:53--> 00:34:55

So when someone told him, Malcolm,

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

if you really want to know what Islam is, I

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

suggest that you go make Hajj, go to Mecca,

00:35:03--> 00:35:05

a day go to Mecca and pay for it.

00:35:07--> 00:35:14

And Malcolm because he was curious, and he was a man searching. He said, Okay, I will go.

00:35:16--> 00:35:19

And now to say that I remember the letter, he said,

00:35:20--> 00:35:21

I arrived in Jeddah,

00:35:23--> 00:35:27

thinking myself to be a Muslim minister,

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

and I felt like a fool.

00:35:31--> 00:35:40

I realized I couldn't pray. I didn't know how to wash. I didn't know anything about Islam, and I felt like a fool calling myself a Muslim minister.

00:35:42--> 00:35:58

And there he discovered what is the Quran, and then he discovered who is Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And there he discovered who is Allah subhanho wa Taala and engender in the court in gender, he took the new Shahada

00:35:59--> 00:36:01

and qualified himself

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

to perform the Hajj.

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

After he took that Shahada and gender,

00:36:09--> 00:36:10

in 1964

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

in November of 1964,

00:36:17--> 00:36:18

six days later,

00:36:19--> 00:36:22

he was writing a letter from Moana,

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

preparing himself to go to out of fat,

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

and

00:36:29--> 00:36:47

having a Toba having cleaned himself, having asked the last forgiveness, and we know the prophets Lawson says, Whosoever asked Allah for forgiveness, and disorder called full upon Allah subhanaw taala says, And whosoever, woman tab, and whoever makes Toba

00:36:49--> 00:37:00

mamita sorry, Florida, or whoever makes Toba and he makes a terrible of sincerity, and after that he does the amount of goodness for him know who you are in a lie he

00:37:01--> 00:37:02

metabo

00:37:03--> 00:37:08

then his Toba is accepted from Allah subhanaw taala as a perfect and clear and clean Toba.

00:37:10--> 00:37:20

So the prophet SAW Sam said whomsoever performs Hajj, with sincerity, he comes back from the heart as if he came from the womb of his mother.

00:37:23--> 00:37:31

So he went as Malcolm X, but he came back as well had Malik Chavez, pure please.

00:37:32--> 00:37:35

With the same dynamism and sincerity

00:37:36--> 00:37:41

meclizine illa de Mola, Sinhala tiene una,

00:37:42--> 00:37:52

wanting to establish a prayer and to pray this occurred at a loss of ongo says with alika Dino pyjama, this was he accepted.

00:37:59--> 00:38:12

So Malcolm became Alhaji Malik Chavez, who made Toba and realized his mistakes. He took his Shahada, he performed his head, he looked death in his face.

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

He said,

00:38:15--> 00:38:22

on my way back from Mecca, I visited seven countries, and the CIA

00:38:23--> 00:38:24

and the FBI.

00:38:26--> 00:38:34

And the international Interpol police and others, plotted to try to kill me at least five times.

00:38:37--> 00:38:41

You don't have to ask yourself why they were plotting to kill this man.

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

Because the enemies of Allah at that time is the same enemies of Allah now.

00:38:49--> 00:39:25

And the same enemies of Allah at that time was the same enemies of Allah, Allah before, because the Lord does not change his sooner. The same enemies Allah subhanaw taala gave to Ibrahima leads to them, and to musar they slam the same enemies a legate to suit a man and the older lays to them and to his heart, to them and to Yeah, and Islam and to Asia and Islam and to Mohammed Salah of Islam and to the companions of the Prophet of Islam, the same enemies Allah subhanaw taala gave to us.

00:39:26--> 00:39:30

The enemies never changed their faces, and they never changed their way.

00:39:33--> 00:39:45

So Malcolm said when he became a Muslim, and they knew that he had become a Muslim, and he had made his commitment to come back to America, and let the world know the truth about Islam

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

and to let those people whom he had led astray, to put them on the right path of Islam, to say that Elijah Muhammad is a liar. To say that the Nation of Islam is a corrupt, misguided

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

mushrik criminal organization

00:40:03--> 00:40:11

and that United States of America, I'm going to put them into the world court and let the world know the crime they have committed against my people.

00:40:13--> 00:40:21

Once he said that, and wrote that letter, and it came out in the New York Times in November 1964, the enemies of Allah began to work.

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

They tried to poison him three times.

00:40:27--> 00:40:30

When he arrived back in America, he said,

00:40:31--> 00:40:33

Every place he went,

00:40:34--> 00:40:46

he saw the enemies of Allah subhanho wa Taala, plotting against him every place to fly to blow up his car, to burn up his house, to shoot at him to poison his food. To do this, to do that.

00:40:47--> 00:40:53

This was a hegemonic Chavez, the caterpillar that turned into a butterfly in three months.

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

The coal that is like a rock from the ground that turned into a diamond in three months.

00:41:02--> 00:41:02

The

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

man

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

who turned into a showerhead,

00:41:10--> 00:41:15

the Kaffir, who became more admin, and qualified himself for Elgin

00:41:16--> 00:41:17

alum.

00:41:19--> 00:41:23

Now this Dean has produced such men over and over.

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

Malcolm was not phenomenal.

00:41:28--> 00:41:38

It just that at the time that he came, he was the most phenomenal of the African Americans that America had ever produced.

00:41:40--> 00:41:46

America had never produced an African American, like Malcolm, like unhygenic Chavez.

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

But this D has produced such men and women over and over and the profits, a lot of them said, the believers are like mines of gold and silver.

00:42:02--> 00:42:11

The believers are like mines of gold and silver, the best of them in the Jahangir will also be the best in the day of Islam, if they believe.

00:42:13--> 00:42:14

So, let us look.

00:42:17--> 00:42:21

We see Amara Maha rhodiola is

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

the worst

00:42:25--> 00:42:28

in his opposition to Islam,

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

but

00:42:33--> 00:42:35

the best in the jahir.

00:42:36--> 00:42:41

And when Allah subhanaw taala gave amo Islam when Allah guided Omar into Islam,

00:42:43--> 00:42:50

Islam change, the Muslim change. No Muslims could speak about Islam publicly.

00:42:51--> 00:42:56

No one could do it until our last panel Allah gave Islam to Omar.

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

And after that Allah subhanaw taala gave

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

to Islam. Hamza.

00:43:05--> 00:43:11

These two men, Hamza and Omar opened up the gates of Islam

00:43:12--> 00:43:17

and the kuffar who did not see Allah subhanho wa Taala. They saw

00:43:19--> 00:43:27

they saw Hamza and Allah gave to the prophets a lot of them and gave to this Deen on enhancer, both of them

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

in their opposition, in their corruption, how many people that are killed? How many Muslims did he or press? What kind of man he was? How many friends did he beat? How many Muslim did he wear?

00:43:46--> 00:44:00

armor. This man raised his life and see how immediately how a loss upon that change is hard. How a law changed the heart of Hamza, the womanizer, the drunkard

00:44:01--> 00:44:04

the man who lived by himself, just to hunt and to kill

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

and to fake Hamza.

00:44:10--> 00:44:14

When a lot touches hot for Islam, so Panama

00:44:15--> 00:44:18

no one had the heart and the courage like Hamza.

00:44:20--> 00:44:23

Yet Hamza, he was not. He was not an alum.

00:44:25--> 00:44:26

He didn't have a lot of knowledge.

00:44:28--> 00:44:30

What about obey the law?

00:44:38--> 00:44:41

A man when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said

00:44:43--> 00:44:48

no woman have given birth to a man light hearted.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

He meant in terms of his courage, he meant in terms of his ability to fight and to defend

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

His vigilance, it was said

00:45:04--> 00:45:12

he would never sleep on the ground while he was out in the field. He let his soldiers sleep but he slept on his horse.

00:45:14--> 00:45:17

And it was said that hardly

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

he had the courage of 10,000 minutes

00:45:25--> 00:45:26

10,000

00:45:28--> 00:45:38

that is 10,000 Roman soldiers knew Khalid was coming with 100 men, they did not want to meet him with 100,010,000.

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

Allah gave to this religion men like

00:45:43--> 00:45:47

men like obey the law and the law men like Hamza

00:45:48--> 00:45:50

men like Tarik Evans,

00:45:52--> 00:45:54

who went was an army

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

to Spain.

00:45:59--> 00:46:02

And when he arrived in Spain with his army,

00:46:03--> 00:46:05

he took them off to the mountain.

00:46:07--> 00:46:14

Not the big army, small army. He took them to the top of the mountain and then he ordered the boats to be burned.

00:46:15--> 00:46:23

And he told him in back of us is the ocean and in front of us is the enemy of Allah subhanho wa Taala what choice you want.

00:46:25--> 00:46:30

We know the Tarik and Ziad was that small handful of men he conquered the whole of Spain

00:46:32--> 00:46:43

Tada, Ziad was not an island. He did not have much knowledge. But Masha Allah Allah subhanaw taala gave him love for this Deen and commitment for this Deen and Eman

00:46:44--> 00:46:47

And then we had men like selaginella uv

00:46:50--> 00:46:51

who also he was not out of

00:46:54--> 00:46:55

martial law.

00:46:56--> 00:47:03

He conquered and took backwoods for Islam when no one else had the power to do it.

00:47:05--> 00:47:08

Salahuddin and iuv He also he was not Ireland.

00:47:11--> 00:47:12

He was Mujahid.

00:47:14--> 00:47:15

And what about Ahmed

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

Ahmed a mythos?

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

An old man

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

who did not fight against the Italians until he was 71.

00:47:29--> 00:47:36

And after being 71 years old, he fought the Italians on horseback 47 battles

00:47:38--> 00:47:39

47

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

after he was 71

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

and they had tanks, and all his soldiers had was horses.

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

And what about a hardtop engine.

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

They also was riding horses,

00:47:59--> 00:48:09

fighting against the Russians with their tanks of the sophistication. And the sons of hottub. In the brothers of Qatar, they are still fighting those cafes today.

00:48:11--> 00:48:22

With all their planes and all their tanks, they cannot overcome the man of those soldiers of Allah subhanaw taala. He also was not the island.

00:48:23--> 00:48:25

He did not have that much knowledge.

00:48:26--> 00:48:34

But he spent his time from the time he's 14 years old, until he became Shahid out in the reservoir fighting against the Kufa

00:48:38--> 00:48:50

and we have seen many others who we don't need to know to call their names, fighting for a law against the kuffar willing to die 100 times

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

while we sleep,

00:48:55--> 00:49:03

to allow us to rest and to enjoy our properties in our homes to bring some dignity back to Islam, some of them are still fighting today.

00:49:04--> 00:49:07

Islam has always produced these kinds of people.

00:49:10--> 00:49:26

We have seen the value the sacrifice the commitment of individuals who themselves they will not scholars, although this Islam has produced the best scholars and the scholars, our fathers, they are worried.

00:49:28--> 00:49:37

Yes, they are. We must respect them. We must love them, we must make reference to them. We must protect them, we must rely upon them.

00:49:38--> 00:49:40

But we must also know

00:49:42--> 00:49:45

that Allah subhanaw taala gave to this Deen two kinds of people.

00:49:48--> 00:49:53

The scholars and the students of knowledge who remained until the Mujahideen came back

00:49:54--> 00:50:00

but this Deen has been preserved on the inside by the older man and the fuqaha and the students of

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

Knowledge, but this deal has been protected. It has been preserved. It has been made dignified. It has been made by and known to the world by the Mujahideen.

00:50:14--> 00:50:26

And don't think that those whose did don't think that those who've been killed that day or did loss upon Allah said Don't think like that. No, they are alive with a loss of $100.

00:50:28--> 00:50:38

Their souls are in the bellies of green birds that go around the throne of Allah subhanaw taala like life until the day of judgment, they will be released.

00:50:40--> 00:50:43

These are the people that bring glory to this Dean.

00:50:44--> 00:50:48

Because if they did, not the scholars and the students of knowledge, they would not have any place to sit.

00:50:51--> 00:50:55

They wouldn't have to have any place to sit, there will be no safety. There will be no dignity.

00:51:00--> 00:51:08

These individuals who themselves were not scholars, they came from the worst conditions. They came from the worst of Jamelia.

00:51:10--> 00:51:13

But they brought dignity and victory for this Deen.

00:51:14--> 00:51:25

They place inspiration into the heart of the young Muslims, inspiration into the heart and hope into the heart of the old Muslims.

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

And they put fear

00:51:29--> 00:51:34

and they put trauma in the heart of the enemies of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

do you run

00:51:40--> 00:51:41

from the street?

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

I love you.

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

I'm also from the street.

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

And I don't mind if every now and then somebody can see the street in me and say, you know,

00:51:55--> 00:51:59

that brother Khalid sometimes he'd be like talking like, like he from the street.

00:52:02--> 00:52:04

You know, sometimes he'd be kind of like j

00:52:08--> 00:52:09

Well, I apologize for that.

00:52:10--> 00:52:15

Because you can take the man out of Brooklyn, but you can't take the Brooklyn out of demand.

00:52:16--> 00:52:20

So if you look real close, you're gonna hear a little bit, you will see a little bit of Brooklyn.

00:52:21--> 00:52:26

And, you know, if things heat up, you might feel some of the Brooklyn

00:52:33--> 00:52:37

I think Allah subhanho wa Taala I never want to become soft.

00:52:40--> 00:52:42

I never want to Kapha to think

00:52:43--> 00:52:45

that they can walk over my face.

00:52:46--> 00:52:55

And I prefer for my sons if they don't have much knowledge. I prayed to a loss upon that they will never allow the Catholics to walk over their faces.

00:52:57--> 00:53:07

So young brothers who love a law, who loves the profits, a lot of them but you have some defects in your heart. You have some defects in your deen, clean up your act.

00:53:10--> 00:53:11

You have time and shot law.

00:53:13--> 00:53:19

Come to the masjid. If you can't pray five times a day. fall into the masjid pray once a day

00:53:21--> 00:53:25

sneaking the mouse Don't worry about it. Don't worry about what the brothers is thinking about what you do.

00:53:26--> 00:53:28

A lot know what they do that nobody knows about.

00:53:30--> 00:53:35

Don't worry about what you're doing is wrong in the street. The mosque belongs to Allah subhanaw taala and belong to you to

00:53:36--> 00:53:38

the mask is the place to come wash up.

00:53:41--> 00:53:43

Clean up clean up that money.

00:53:46--> 00:53:48

Clean up that dirty money

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

clean up your association

00:53:57--> 00:54:00

don't feel your home boys. Like you ought to feel a lot

00:54:04--> 00:54:33

because your home boys is waiting for one of you to come to them off to do the right thing to say the right thing and come back to them and say listen brothers we all we still cool everything's all right. But man look man, we got to come back to a lot. We got to come back to a lot. We got to give the respect to Allah subhanaw taala pay the rent, pay the rent, pay the rent me make this a lot. pay the rent on the house, the houses, paid rent, how you pay the rent, make this a lot.

00:54:35--> 00:54:46

Makes a lot. Even if you're doing something wrong. Don't let anybody tell you that because you're doing something wrong. Don't make no salon because it don't make no difference. Who ever tell you that is a fool.

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

It's like the man who came to a scholar and said Listen, I killed 99 men 999 people. What do you think?

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

You think Allah will give Forgive me

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

skala told him no.

00:55:02--> 00:55:06

No. So he said, Alright, fine, I'm not gonna kill you too.

00:55:08--> 00:55:14

What's the Hickman that was the Hitman? The Hitman is that the scholars should have told him in the love of

00:55:18--> 00:55:23

the worst Muslim, the worse is better than a pious mushrik

00:55:25--> 00:55:29

the worst Muslim is better than a pious Kaffir.

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

No matter what Allah gives the kaphas

00:55:35--> 00:55:48

the whole dunya means nothing to Allah subhanaw taala Don't worry about what he gave them. The prophets lost them said, if this whole dunya had the value of the wing of a mosquito, Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't gave the calf with a drink of water.

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

But because the doing you don't mean nothing to Allah, He gives him and he gives us he doesn't care.

00:55:56--> 00:55:57

But

00:55:58--> 00:56:02

the Muslim who calls upon him from time to time,

00:56:03--> 00:56:08

allow love the one that does the wrong and then says oh law Please forgive me.

00:56:10--> 00:56:13

I stopped for the law of demand. Then Then.

00:56:15--> 00:56:20

La ilaha illa Anta supanova intercontinental bardini

00:56:22--> 00:56:25

this is what you need to say. Because you

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

and me.

00:56:28--> 00:56:33

We can become better than Alhaji Chavez.

00:56:34--> 00:56:37

He was just a small Muslim.

00:56:39--> 00:56:44

He was just a small flash in the pan. He wasn't a salon who did a UV.

00:56:47--> 00:56:50

He wasn't a Hamza for the long run.

00:56:51--> 00:56:52

He wasn't a tonic.

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

He was

00:56:56--> 00:57:07

no he was just a man who found himself by the grace of the law and made Toba and made a commitment and his life ended in three months.

00:57:10--> 00:57:12

You brother from the street.

00:57:14--> 00:57:19

You soldiers on the edge that's what I call you. And we need some soldiers on the edge.

00:57:21--> 00:57:24

Because sometimes brothers us in the inside is good to pious

00:57:26--> 00:57:27

you get to solve.

00:57:29--> 00:57:32

Sometimes there's business that need to be taken care of.

00:57:35--> 00:57:38

That only those soldiers on the edge can take care of

00:57:39--> 00:57:42

look to the zero of the profits lost them and you will understand

00:57:43--> 00:57:47

that even in terms of the profits lost them there were soldiers on the edge

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

that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them to the Prophet that tells them he had no responsibility over them. But they took care of some business on the edge.

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

Look to the Sierra and Alaska peninsula told the province allows him when they come to you and give sadaqa take the Seneca and purify it for them.

00:58:12--> 00:58:14

purify it and make drive for them.

00:58:15--> 00:58:21

But you don't have to take no responsibility of what they do. Today on the edge. Y'all know what I'm talking about.

00:58:23--> 00:58:25

Lots of brothers in here on the edge.

00:58:27--> 00:58:32

Make your way from the edge into the middle because that's where the safety is.

00:58:33--> 00:58:38

Don't stay out on the edge because the edge is dangerous you can fall off at any time.

00:58:39--> 00:58:43

Anytime if you die on the edge, you don't know where you're going.

00:58:46--> 00:58:49

You don't know where you're going. If you're down the edge

00:58:50--> 00:58:52

because you don't know you ain't making no salaat

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

you in pain Have you eaten heroin? You drinking heroin.

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

You doing heroin.

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

You speak in Harlem? You carrying the weight of the heroin on you day and night.

00:59:09--> 00:59:27

So the rest of the loss upon the can come a locking he says in the Quran hamin 10 zero kita mineralizes rollin? Rafi then we will copy the Tao Misha de la COVID de toda la la la la La Masia.

00:59:29--> 00:59:32

So brothers make your way from the edge towards the center.

00:59:35--> 00:59:38

Know that Allah subhana wa tada is all forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:59:40--> 00:59:41

You have to make Toba

00:59:43--> 00:59:54

and after you make Toba be the best that you can be. You got to be what nobody say you need to be. Don't think you need to come in from the edge. And right away. You need to grow your beard.

00:59:55--> 00:59:58

Right away. You need to put on our bio you need to put on the Koofi.

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

Right away

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

You got to learn the Akita, you got to memorize authentic ID, you got to learn the Syrah, you got to get on the hot.

01:00:08--> 01:00:10

You don't have to do all of that right away.

01:00:11--> 01:00:14

Because some of the brothers who have done that, they still on edge.

01:00:19--> 01:00:27

They in the center in the words they in the center on the outside, but maybe inside some things they do, they still on the edge.

01:00:28--> 01:00:40

And there are some brothers, who they didn't vote a beard yet. They didn't put on the ibuyer yet, they didn't learn the Akita or the Hadith or the sera yet, but their heart is Muslim.

01:00:41--> 01:00:43

And if their hearts is miraculous,

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

allow and accept from demand shala from the heart this noise.

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

So we don't make the judgment we say

01:00:54--> 01:00:56

establish the praise.

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

Clean your money. Clean your company.

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

Clean your heart, spend an hour a week with a student of knowledge.

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

Come into circles where the brothers is given up the knowledge. Even if you go to sleep.

01:01:15--> 01:01:16

You will still get some blessings.

01:01:17--> 01:01:19

He was the brothers.

01:01:21--> 01:01:23

Walk with the brothers. Come to the masjid

01:01:25--> 01:01:31

come to you Ma. As the brothers brothers Look, I just need to sleep one night here. I just need to get out the street and get my head together.

01:01:35--> 01:01:58

Because if you spend an hour a week with the people who have clean hearts, the people who have clean lives, the people who are given in knowledge, the people who have a love for the profits A lot of us alone, the people who have made Toba and after that did not return back to the crimes if you spend an hour with him, it'll be just like 100 hours that you spent with your boys in the street.

01:01:59--> 01:02:17

And you might have a chance to get up off the edge but if you don't spend that hour don't think brother somehow or another some kind of fairy tale, disneyland inshallah kind of thing is just gonna happen somewhere along the line. You can find yourself on a on a coal slab next door

01:02:19--> 01:02:22

and it'll all be over. You know what I'm talking about the coal slab next door.

01:02:25--> 01:02:30

Then it's all over brothers. Your Money Your girlfriend's all the bling bling you had around the neck.

01:02:33--> 01:02:37

You know, all dum dum jazzy cars zx, whatever you ride around in.

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

One of your boys gonna be riding around and

01:02:42--> 01:02:56

one of your boys gonna be wearing the bling bling. And one of your boys is gonna have your little girl in the seat next to him. When your boy is gonna move into your apartment. One of your boys gonna be wearing your clothes when your boys gonna take over that area that you were slinging.

01:02:58--> 01:03:02

And one of your boys will be on the edge where you was but now you inside the grades.

01:03:04--> 01:03:27

Brothers, pull yourself together. Clean your heart and you will see the real sweetness of this being like Alhaji Chavez, you don't have to be perfect. You don't have to have unusual knowledge. Alhaji Malik Chavez, he was not perfect. He did not have unusual knowledge. And you don't have to be super pious. You only need to be decent.

01:03:29--> 01:03:34

Be sincere. Be real. As boys in history say be about it about it.

01:03:36--> 01:03:37

You some of y'all know

01:03:38--> 01:03:39

about it.

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

Be ballad

01:03:42--> 01:03:44

be real. Be straight up.

01:03:47--> 01:03:56

Don't be phony. Don't be a fake. Don't be like you think you're trying to act pious on the outside. But you know what ain't really happening on the inside.

01:03:58--> 01:04:01

The the best Muslim that you can be. That's what the prophet SAW Sam said do as much as you can.

01:04:04--> 01:04:09

If Malcolm X became Alhaji Chavez in three months

01:04:10--> 01:04:15

from the worst to the best, from zero to hero

01:04:17--> 01:04:21

then you can do it to feel or wherever you are is the process awesome said

01:04:23--> 01:04:24

it tequila is

01:04:26--> 01:04:53

what we associate with hustler tambah maharlika ness, the whole lueken hustling Fiala wherever you are and follow up a bad deed with a good one and that will wipe it out and after that have good behavior towards people. Now follow up a bad deal with a good one that will wipe it out doesn't mean you can do a haraam action, and you can just do a good deed it wipes it out don't mean that because the only thing that wipes out cabana is Toba.

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

So if you did a major crime, you got to make Toba but if you did something small

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

follow it up with a good deed and that will wipe it out and after that have good behavior.

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

Dear brothers, it's never too late to correct yourself.

01:05:11--> 01:05:14

One of you that sitting in this room here

01:05:15--> 01:05:18

could be the next savior for Islam.

01:05:22--> 01:05:31

One of you may become one of the major representatives of this Deen in this country or in this part of the earth.

01:05:33--> 01:05:34

We don't know who you are.

01:05:35--> 01:05:41

We don't know who that person is. They could be in the womb right now, or they can be in this room right now.

01:05:42--> 01:05:45

And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala that he

01:05:47--> 01:05:51

bless us And forgive us. Have mercy upon us and guide us.

01:05:52--> 01:05:56

unite our hearts and take the nationalism out of our hearts

01:05:58--> 01:06:04

and take the the separate ideologies out of our hearts. Take the divisions out of our hearts.

01:06:05--> 01:06:09

We asked the last 100 Allah to bless the older man,

01:06:10--> 01:06:57

the fuqaha the students of knowledge, who make the sacrifice, we asked the last 100 Allah to bless our share tragedy. We asked the Lord to bless the measures assura here, we ask the Lord to bless check Sadie and all the brothers from you, ma and the brothers from the Australian new Muslim Association, we asked the Lord to bless all the Shabbat. We also last wanted to bless all the show you we asked the last one to bless the small ones, the big ones, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he accept I will do it except our prayers except our fasting. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that in one year, that this must not be big enough for the Muslims of sincerity that we have to add a whole new

01:06:57--> 01:07:08

MOS. We asked the last panel that every young Muslim in this room that would like to have a wife get herself a wife in the next 30 days.

01:07:09--> 01:07:19

We ask a lot of every sister that is available for marriage that she become the first, the second, the third, or the fourth wife, but she gets married.

01:07:21--> 01:07:22

This we pray.

01:07:24--> 01:07:24

We want

01:07:26--> 01:07:36

to have a wife, all the sisters to have a husband, even if it means having a problem. I'd rather have a halau problem than to have a wrong one.

01:07:40--> 01:07:48

And we asked the mothers and fathers to move the traditions out the way and let your sons and daughters get married.

01:07:51--> 01:07:56

Your son got a room. Adam go get a honey and bring her in his room.

01:07:59--> 01:08:09

He ain't got to get no graduating certificate gotta get a house in a car and gotta get his own bungalow and this and that. Some don't happen before you get there.

01:08:11--> 01:08:12

You better wake up and smell the coffee.

01:08:15--> 01:08:19

I'm telling you sisters, mothers that watch your daughter's

01:08:21--> 01:08:26

you trying to hold him out for a white white knight in shining armor.

01:08:27--> 01:08:33

And I'm telling you some of them Kapha Knights in some stain armor is getting some

01:08:36--> 01:08:42

you're gonna wind up with Fatima coming home with a harem baby the haraam grandson

01:08:44--> 01:08:47

don't say it is not gonna happen because it is happening.

01:08:49--> 01:08:54

So I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that we bring the real feeling

01:08:55--> 01:08:56

for this deal.

01:08:57--> 01:09:14

And try to solve some of our problems. And understand that it doesn't take a lot of knowledge to solve the problems and a don't take no great amount of faith to be able to deal with the cover and the shark and the corruption of this world.

01:09:15--> 01:09:18

He called for people who have special Eman

01:09:19--> 01:09:29

We ask Allah subhanaw taala that the sincerity of Alhaji Malik Chavez, if any acts he did was sincere, we asked the Lord to give him all the

01:09:31--> 01:09:37

all the other equal to the number of people who have become Muslim by those who he helped to become Muslim.

01:09:41--> 01:09:51

And we ask Allah subhanaw taala Finally, that he calls this Deen in this country in this land to enter every house in every place.

01:09:52--> 01:10:00

Until no one will be able to say that they don't know what is law either in the law, Muhammad Rasulullah wakulla Kali has

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

stuck with

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

me.

01:10:14--> 01:10:43

And in the morning snack and snack, somebody that lives inside of our homes, or we get a phone call our mother or father, a grandmother or grandfather, our child, our friend, our neighbor, who we saw just yesterday I spoke to was laughing and talking. death came that night and smashed to me. Malcolm X was a racist, a nationalist, a man who said things about Allah subhanho wa Taala, which he had no right to say.

01:10:46--> 01:10:48

Yes, he was a reformed criminal.

01:10:49--> 01:10:59

But even after he was reformed in his conduct, he was still saying things about Allah subhanaw taala, which he had no right to say because Malcolm X was Jay hidden.

01:11:03--> 01:11:04

But the man

01:11:06--> 01:11:17

who I need to speak about, his name is Al Hajj, Malik Chavez. But we can't speak about him unless we come through Malcolm X.

01:11:18--> 01:11:19

So let us be clear.

01:11:22--> 01:11:23

Malcolm X,

01:11:24--> 01:11:25

lived a life

01:11:26--> 01:11:45

which is impressive for non Muslims. But for us Muslims, we have no concern about his life, except three months before Allah subhanho wa Taala took his life civilization is in need, as it has had in the past reformation and a new morality. What did I say it is in need of

01:11:46--> 01:11:51

reformation and a new morality. Here comes the core n.

01:11:54--> 01:12:35

This is the very presence. This is the very premise of the need of the Quran and modern civilization, because that was the need of the Qur'an 1500 years ago, and that is how the Qur'an brought forward. A civilization that we are experiencing today, you might say to yourself, Well, how did the Koran bring forward a civilization that we're experiencing? Today? We're going to discuss that I'm going to qualify my statements. But keep this in mind. I'm saying to you that the basic thesis and answer whether the Quran can be applied in modern civilization, the basis of it is that the Quran is a book of Revelation. It is a book of inspiration, and is a book of legislation that if

01:12:35--> 01:12:53

it is followed, it will reform the human being, it will reform the family, it will reform the society, it will reform the government and it will reform the world, the woman that sleeps through the ledger, or doesn't perform her prayers. Generally speaking her family, they also will do the same.

01:12:55--> 01:12:59

The woman who watches a lot of TV, her family will do the same.

01:13:00--> 01:13:07

The woman that is selfish, she will raise a selfish family. The woman is the first university

01:13:08--> 01:13:29

what she teaches the family. In most cases, the family will never unlearn it, they will carry it the rest of their lives. Young people are dancing and drinking and drugging and fighting, and stealing and creating problems so that the police have to come to the mosque or to their parents and say, You must control these children or otherwise we have to throw them into jail.

01:13:32--> 01:13:42

You have a problem where the young people do not respect their parents. Young people don't want to stay home. Young people want to do what they feel like doing. And we cannot do anything about it.

01:13:44--> 01:13:48

Because the young people have an identity crisis.

01:13:49--> 01:13:50

They don't know who they are.

01:13:51--> 01:13:54

They don't know if they are Australians.

01:13:55--> 01:13:56

Or if they are Muslims.

01:13:59--> 01:14:10

They have been to Australian schools, learn the Australian values and culture. But you have named them I've met Fatima Mohammed.

01:14:12--> 01:14:15

so and so. You told them Don't do this.

01:14:16--> 01:14:22

They don't know why not. You told them read code and they never see you read it.

01:14:23--> 01:15:00

You tell them go to the mosque. When it comes to the mosque. They see nothing but a group of old men sitting down there's not enough Iraqi Muslim, Nigerian Muslim. No, now I have to be I have to be Sufi or I have to be Salafi. Or I have to be Sunni, or I have to be Shay or I have to be Wahhabi, or I got to be Allawi or I got to be this or that. It's not enough that we are Muslims upon the tohave of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Muslims upon the monotheism

01:15:00--> 01:15:21

Ibrahim alayhi salam, although we are Muslims upon the Quran and the Sunnah. Now we have to distinguish ourselves from the other Muslims. And we have to call ourselves certain names. Let's work like that. All the different groups as represented here, let's get our imams together. Let's get the Amir that we set up our chairman's our leaders and get them together and ask them what's the deal?

01:15:22--> 01:15:38

What's happening? What's the problem? Why you guys can't get together? Why you guys can't get together and choose whoever knows the most current and whoever knows the most of the sooner whichever view is the oldest among you. I can't you guys get together and do that. What's the problem?

01:15:39--> 01:15:49

If we don't ask them to do that they won't do it for another 50 years. And on the Juma we talk first, and then we pray last on the aid we do just to reverse

01:15:51--> 01:16:12

we pray first, and after that was what the top the more Muslims after, after, after the prayers over the aftermath, to take bids and all that finish, he get up the top Muslim broke breaking out, they started the barbecue, the kids running all around, the brothers talking, everybody got on new clothes, the sisters walking around, and the mommy talking about him.

01:16:13--> 01:16:16

Because the Muslims will have no respect.

01:16:18--> 01:16:21

If the Hatim of the Muslims had respect,

01:16:23--> 01:16:25

he would tell everybody, Everyone sit down.

01:16:27--> 01:16:40

And they would be sitting just like this he could deliver to those 4000 those 5000 people as he supposed to but he cannot you know that the adults they don't like the Pakistanis, and the Pakistanis, they don't like to Adams,

01:16:42--> 01:16:44

you know, in the end, the Africans don't like nobody.

01:16:52--> 01:16:54

No, I don't mean that. I don't mean that brother.

01:16:57--> 01:17:00

I could have switched it around, you know, I switched around some time.

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

So when you die, the moment that you die, and all of you will die, another part of the trip is over. And that part of the ticket is torn off and is gone. You will not return back to this life. Nobody has La ilaha

01:17:22--> 01:17:23

illAllah

01:17:25--> 01:17:25

Muhammad

01:17:27--> 01:17:28

Rasool Allah

01:18:00--> 01:18:03

right, as you have seen me running

01:18:14--> 01:18:15

the Night Journey.

01:18:19--> 01:18:24

One common night in Mecca. One year before the migration to Medina.

01:18:26--> 01:18:45

The roof of the Prophet Mohammed's house was opened while he was sleeping, and the noble Angel Gabriel came towards him. There the Prophet peace be upon him. So a white creature, smaller than a mule, larger than a donkey, with wings on each side of its hind leg.

01:18:46--> 01:18:57

The Prophet peace be upon him mount of the creature, and they took off north to bait our map this in Jerusalem. This part of the journey is referred to as

01:18:59--> 01:19:00

soon

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

as

01:19:09--> 01:19:25

it is during this miraculous journey, that alarm made the daily prayers compulsory, initially 15 daily prayers for the Prophet peace be upon him and his followers. Go back to your Lord and ask him to reduce the burden on your people.

01:19:27--> 01:19:28

hygiene in Islam

01:19:30--> 01:19:31

in

01:19:34--> 01:19:53

Prophet peace be upon him said that cleanliness is one half of faith. fingernails and toenails should be clipped, pubic hair and armpits should be shaved at least once every 40 days. One of the three things Muhammad peace be upon him loved was perfume

01:19:55--> 01:19:57

would do ablution

01:19:58--> 01:19:59

Yeah.

01:20:08--> 01:20:17

Allah does not accept the prayer of one who has nullified his ablution until he performs it again washing their hands.

01:20:25--> 01:20:31

Muhammad peace be upon him poured water on his hands and wash them three times.

01:20:33--> 01:20:50

Then he wiped his head and entered his two index fingers into his ears and wipe the backs of his ears with his thumbs summary. Make an intention and say Bismillah wash the hands, rinse the mouth.

01:20:52--> 01:20:54

General points about ablution

01:20:55--> 01:21:04

water usage, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him used to perform a complete ablution with just two handfuls of water,

01:21:06--> 01:21:10

brushing the teeth, what nullifies ablution

01:21:11--> 01:21:18

after one uses the toilet, touching the private parts to dry ablution

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

or

01:21:24--> 01:21:32

strike the palms of their hands once on clean Earth such as sand or any clean surface on which dust has collected

01:21:33--> 01:21:37

when bathing has required, performing goosal

01:21:38--> 01:21:50

after sexual intercourse after having a wet dream, then he took some water and put his fingers to the roots of his hair, to the extent that he sees that the skin is with

01:21:52--> 01:21:52

the

01:22:01--> 01:22:03

importance of prayer.

01:22:10--> 01:22:25

The Prophet peace be upon him said if a person had a stream outside his door, and he bathed in it five times a day, would they have any filth left on them? The people said no filth would remain on them whatsoever.

01:22:39--> 01:22:45

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said between a person and disbelief is leaving the prayer.

01:22:47--> 01:22:58

place of prayer. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said the earth has been made for me and for my followers a place for praying.

01:23:00--> 01:23:22

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him prohibited prayer in seven places dung hills, slaughterhouses, graveyards, proper dress, for the men, just above the navel to just below the knees, the shoulders must be covered, facing the Qibla direction of prayer.

01:23:30--> 01:23:35

When the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him stood for prayer, he would face the Kaaba

01:23:39--> 01:23:40

times for prayer.

01:23:41--> 01:23:42

in

01:23:54--> 01:24:14

prayer, morning prayer, the time of the morning prayer is from the appearance of the dawn until the time of sunrise. Forbidden time the Prophet peace be upon him said there is no prayer after the morning prayer until the sun has completely risen.

01:24:17--> 01:24:31

Placing a sutra barrier or screen. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said when one of you prays he should pray towards his sutra and he should be close to it. intention.

01:24:32--> 01:24:43

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said the reward of deeds depends upon the intention and the person will get the reward according to what he has intended.

01:24:44--> 01:24:53

The Prophet peace be upon him would raise his hands with his fingers slightly spread apart level with his shoulders while saying the takbeer

01:24:54--> 01:24:56

Allahu Akbar,

01:24:57--> 01:25:00

the Prophet, peace be upon him would then receive

01:25:00--> 01:25:45

Syed another chapter from the Quran. The purity sutra Tony floss Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, Allah Allahu Allahu Ahad Allahu Samad. He does not produce a child, and he was not born of anyone, and there is no one equal to him. The Prophet peace be upon him would recite the Quran in slow, measured rhythmic tones, as Allah had instructed him. When the Prophet peace be upon him bowed in prayer, he kept his back level such that if water was poured on it, the water would not run off Subhana

01:25:46--> 01:26:36

As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah peace beyond you, and the mercy of Allah, the five daily prayers, morning prayer, to units, noon prayer, for units everything that Allah prescribes, has a wisdom behind it.

01:27:47--> 01:27:52

distinguished guests, brothers and sisters, ladies and gentlemen,

01:27:53--> 01:27:55

friends and enemies.

01:27:58--> 01:28:01

I want to point out first that I'm very happy to be here this evening.

01:28:03--> 01:28:08

And I'm thankful for the invitation to come here to Detroit this evening. I was in a house last night that was bombed.

01:28:09--> 01:28:17

But I didn't it didn't destroy my clothes at all. But you know what happened to on fire. The smoking thing I could get my hands on,

01:28:18--> 01:28:19

before leaving was what I have on now.

01:28:21--> 01:28:21

And

01:28:25--> 01:28:54

it wasn't it isn't something that made me lose confidence in what I'm doing. Because my wife understands. And I have children from this size on down. And even in their young age, they understand I think they would rather have a father or brother or whatever the situation may be, who will take a stand in the face of any kind of reaction from narrow minded people, rather than to compromise and later on have to grow up in shame and industry.

01:29:00--> 01:29:33

So I just asked you to excuse my appearance, I don't normally come out in front of people without a shirt and a tie. I guess that's somewhat a holdover from the black Muslim movement, which I was in. And that's one of the good aspects of that movement and teaches you to be very careful and conscious of how you look, which is a positive contribution on their part. But that positive contribution on their part is greatly offset by too many other liabilities.

01:29:34--> 01:29:59

Before I get involved in anything nowadays, I have to straighten out my own position, and which is clear, I am not a racist in any form whatsoever. I don't believe in any form of racism. I don't believe in any form of discrimination or segregation. I believe in Islam, I'm a Muslim, and there's nothing wrong with being a being a Muslim. Nothing wrong with the religion of Islam that just teaches us to believe in Allah as the God and those of you who are

01:30:00--> 01:30:42

Christians probably believing the same guy. Because I think you believe in the God who created the universe. And that's the one we believe in the one who created the universe, the only difference being, you call him God and, and we call him Allah. Jews call him Jehovah. If you could understand Hebrew, you'd probably call him Jehovah to, if you can understand Arabic, you probably call him Allah. But since since the white man, your friend took your language away from you, during slavery, the only language you know is his language, you know, your friends language. So you call him you call from the same guy he calls for when he's putting the rope around your neck, you call for God he

01:30:42--> 01:30:43

calls for

01:30:49--> 01:30:52

you and you wonder why the when you call on their answers.

01:30:56--> 01:31:13

When I was in the black Muslim movement, I wasn't they didn't have the real religion of Islam in that movement. It was something else. And but the real religion of Islam doesn't teach anyone to judge another human being by the color of their skin. The yardstick that is used by the Muslim to

01:31:15--> 01:31:45

measure another man is not the man's color, but the man's deeds, the man's conscious behavior, the man's intention. And when you use that as a standard of measurement or judgment, you never go wrong. But when you just judge a man, because of the color of his skin, then you're committing a crime, because that's the worst kind of judgment, if you judge in depth, because he wasn't viewed as not as bad as judging him because he's black. Because the Jew can hide his religion, he can say something else, which a lot of them do that they say something.

01:31:46--> 01:32:27

But black men can hide when they start invading us because of our color. That means we're indicted before we're born, which is the worst kind of crime that can be committed. United, Mohammed told us that the white man could not enter into Mecca and Arabia. And all of us who followed him, we believed it. And he said, the reason he couldn't enter was because he's white, and inherently evil. It's impossible to change him. And the only thing that would change him is Islam. And he can't accept Islam, because by nature, he's evil. And therefore, by not being able to accept Islam and become a Muslim, he could never enter Mecca. And this is how he taught us. And, you know, when so

01:32:27--> 01:32:47

when I got over there and went to Mecca, and saw these people who blond and blue eyed and pale skin and all those things, I said, well, but I, I watched them closely. And I noticed that there was though they were white, and they would call themselves white, there was a difference between them, and the white one over here. And that basic difference was this.

01:32:49--> 01:33:17

In the in Asia, or the Arab world, or in Africa, where the Muslims are, if you find one who says he's white, all he's doing is using an adjective to describe something that's incidental about him one of his instant incidental characteristics. So there's nothing else to it, he just play. But when you get the white man over here in America, and he says he's white, he means something else, you can listen to the sound of his voice when he says what he means he's boss.

01:33:19--> 01:33:20

What I mean,

01:33:22--> 01:33:54

in this language, you know, the expression free white and 21, he made that out, he's letting you know all the same. White means free boss, he's up there. So when he says he's white, he has a little different sound in his voice. And I know you know what I'm talking about. Despite the fact that I saw that Islam was a religion of brotherhood, I also had to face reality. And when I get back into this American society, I'm not in a society that practices brotherhood. I'm in a society that might preach it on Sunday, but they don't practice it in on a normal day on any day.

01:33:58--> 01:34:09

So since I can see that America itself has a society where there is no brotherhood, and that this society is controlled primarily by racist and segregationist, and it is.

01:34:11--> 01:34:54

This is a society whose government doesn't hesitate to inflict the most brutal form of punishment and oppression, upon dark skinned people all over the world. To wit right now what's going on, in in sneer in and around Saigon and Hanoi, and in the Congo and elsewhere, they are violent, when their interests are at stake. But there were all that violence that they display at the international level. When you and I want just a little bit of freedom. We're supposed to be non violent, they are violent. They are violent in Korea, they are violent in Germany, they are found in the South Pacific. They are violent in Cuba, they're violent wherever they go. But when it comes time for you

01:34:54--> 01:34:58

and me to protect ourselves against lynching, they tell us to be non violent.

01:35:05--> 01:35:19

We should defend ourselves. And when I say that we should defend ourselves against the violence of others. They use their press skillfully to make the world think that I'm calling on violence period. And I wouldn't call on anybody to be violent

01:35:20--> 01:35:35

without a cause. But I think black men in this country, above and beyond people all over the world, and will be more justified when he stands up and starts to protect himself no matter how many next he has to break in the heads he has to crack.

01:35:41--> 01:35:55

I saw in the paper where they in the on the television where they took this black woman down in Selma, Alabama, and not to read down on the ground was dragging her down the street inside he tried to pretend like you didn't see it, because you mean he should have done something about it and

01:36:00--> 01:36:04

his children they share and his henchmen

01:36:06--> 01:36:23

black women on the ground on the ground, and Negro men standing around, doing nothing about saying, well, let's overcome them with our capacity to love what kind of phrases overcome them with our capacity to love
