hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah and the Muslim Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was heavy was was he reality as mine, Baba
fantastical Hades. Kitab alaba Haider, Howdy, howdy Mohammed in some Allahu alayhi wa sallam
Mashallah more data to have a coup de de da da da da da da, da de la Latin for now.
Are you an equity Kieron?
Well, I forgot to say that Salaam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.
My respected Muslim brothers and sisters and in the event that there are some non Muslims here As salam o Allah,
Huda peace be upon those who follow the guidance.
Our task this evening is to address a very critical topic
or traditional topic,
the responsibility of delivering the message.
While I will do my best to address that traditional topic,
I'm forced to do it in an untraditional way.
An untraditional meaning that
I won't suddenly just simply just talk about Tao and give some verses of Quran about the beauty of Tao and some a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. About the responsibility of Tao
and then after that, take some questions and answers about something which is already clear.
Dow is a mandate.
Dow is an excursion.
Dow is in operation.
The people who've lost upon what the Allah has ordered to
execute this mandate. And the people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has ordered to go out on this excursion and the people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has ordered to perform this operation.
they are unprepared.
So we can talk about the operation and we can talk about the excursion and we can talk about the mandate of Allah subhana wa Taala but if
We're not prepared, then we're like those people that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned when he says, Oh you who believe, why is it that you say something, which you do not actually do?
Kabbalah macdon in the law,
various hateful is it in the sight of a law that you say something which you actually don't do, and in many cases don't even intend to do
with the Muslims, the body of the Muslims, the Omar of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
the Jamal muslimeen. Wherever we are in the earth as a body, we are not prepared to execute this mandate and we are not prepared to go out on this excursion and we are not prepared to perform this physical operation.
It is not my intent simply to talk about the defects of the Muslims.
But to do what a doctor a general practitioner would do if you came to his office.
That is to make an examination of your physical condition
or in the case of a psychiatrist or psychologist to make an assessment of your mental or psychological condition.
So, what I would like to do and I asked for your
I would like to first talk about the characteristics of our condition.
throughout the world, the Muslim condition is one
where they are traumatized.
They are paralyzed.
They are incarcerated in their own homes, in their own lands,
incarcerated within their own limited cultural mentalities.
And they are confused.
Now, this is my subjective observation.
After having visited
at least 23 countries where the population is the majority is Muslim.
And another 14 or 15 countries where Muslims are minorities.
The trauma that Muslims
find themselves in
have multiple levels.
They have been traumatized because they have been invaded.
The invasion in most cases was a direct invasion, military invasion.
They have been traumatized because they have been invaded ideologically.
That is the unbelievers, the kuffaar were permitted by the Muslims or allowed by the Muslims or in some cases invited by the Muslims to establish
their universities, their curriculums, their syllabus and introduce their culture into the Muslims, sort of the Muslims became polluted.
The invasion in some cases was more subtle than that.
It came through
marketing techniques like McDonald's and Burger King,
that Muslims fake are innocent.
But it's not innocent. It's part of the design of dismantling your values and establishing on top of that, their values for generations to come.
We still have not recovered from this trauma.
And this trauma is not just something that exists
in the Muslim countries. The trauma exists among the Muslims who live as minorities in the Catholic countries, because they bring the cultural baggage from the Muslim countries to where they live, and they continue to live the Trump.
They are paralyzed. paralyzed means impotent,
unable to move,
as if they are strapped in their chairs, paralyzed.
I give you a few examples.
In the Muslim countries, we can take seven of the major Muslim countries major we say where the major scholars are, where the major students of knowledge are, where the major institutions are in those societies. The dour is frozen, frozen
people Katherine's come in and out of those countries, and take high ranking positions in institutions and in government, and leave after living there for five or 10 years and did not receive any doubt.
Because the Muslims are paralyzed.
We don't blame the scholars because they're not for us.
Then I priests.
So we can't blame the scholars as if the responsibility of Tao is upon scholars and students of knowledge. We don't have priests in our religion, the Dow is a responsibility of the people themselves. And if a non Muslim, works in a Muslim country for 10 years,
and comes out of there and never received any direct dow it means the people of that country were paralyzed when it comes to dow.
Another example we can take here in Australia or anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere, or anywhere else, where the Western culture or civilization is dominant. The paralysis takes a different form.
That is, the Muslims are strapped into the culture of their messages of the Islamic centers, and outside of their messages and Islamic centers, they do nothing that represents the Islamic dollar. It says if they are paralyzed,
they come to the mosque
10% of them and they pray
and 10% of those that come to the mosque and pray, come to the fudger prayer and come to the Isha prayer. That makes it like 1% of the Muslims that even come to fudge the issue.
And among those that come to fudger this year, they are the most stimulated, they are the most inspired, and in many cases, the most knowledgeable and able to do doubt.
But what do we find?
We find that usually the Dow is mechanical
it's ritualistic. It very rarely leaves the university. And on the university, it very rarely leaves this limited type of environment that we're in.
And in the masjid, it never leaves the Islamic Center. It says if there's a switch on the door of the mosque, when they come in, they become pious and stimulated and when they go out.
They become a different kind of people
they are incarcerated in their own countries. incarceration is another word for me being locked up
in jail, deprived of normal privileges.
Muslims and their own countries are incarcerated.
It means that the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Sharia of Allah subhanho wa Taala the data of Islam is locked up in their own countries and limited to certain formal environments
and limited only to talking about rituals.
In the last 10 years, we've had a phenomenon where Muslims now
are talking about aqeedah
10 years ago Muslims weren't even talking about that Kedah.
hamdulillah now the books have been written about the leader and the emphasis is upon Akita but unfortunately for the last 10 years, the brothers and sisters can't seem to get past aqeedah
As if, as if the 10 years in Medina doesn't exist those was not the years of Akita.
You're right 13 years the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to the ye from Allah subhanaw taala emphasized aqeedah. But what about the other 10 years?
Many Muslims have been here in Australia all their lives.
They have grown up here, their children have grown up here. So we've passed the 23 year mark.
When are we going to start talking about the ads that were revealed in Medina? When are we going to start to implement the I ads and the and the ash cam
that came in the time of Medina.
They are confused. Muslims are confused. When we say down even the average Muslim is still asking questions like shake. And by the way, that's just the title of respect because it doesn't mean knowledge. For me. That's a check.
Can you give the definition of doubt? Can you tell us what is the best way for us to talk to a non Muslim subpanel law.
You don't think that the Catholic institutions have learned how to talk to Muslims, for Muslims become consumers of them. They know exactly how to talk to you.
They know exactly how to appeal to you and your children to do what to suck all the blood out of you. And to have you fixed upon their televisions and their media. Most of your day, and most of your lives. And we Muslims we have the Quran, we have the sun will live in among them in their neighborhoods, going to the institutions working with them on the jobs. We are praying five times a day some of us and we don't know how to talk to them. The hola hola quwata in nevertheless,
because of this traumatization because of this paralysis and because of this incarceration and confusion.
What has happened throughout the Muslim world is that relative to the dour now, I'm not going to speak about all the other things, since the topic is about dour as a result of this.
These conditions, Muslims have become negligent.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned to us
he said yeah, you have a denominator.
Here you have a denominator just a law. Well,
not so much.
What up law in the law hobby room.
Monitor to know Kela Venus love answer whom? Am fuseini hula? hula
Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions to us and these as oh you who believe? Fear Allah be mindful of Allah.
Walton good look, investigate, review.
look towards what you send forward.
look towards what you have invested what you have planted, whether it means your energy, whether it means your money, whether it be your children, or your time, look towards what you have set forward for yourself. Because the only thing you're gonna find in front of you is what you set forward.
What type of law, be mindful of the law, Sharia law in the love of beer on the mat down balloon?
Verily, Allah is aware of the most subtle things you do the things I don't know that you do. And the things that I do that you don't know Allah is aware, and he knows and he has described it.
He says, What can I do, to love and serve whom am fusa who do not be like those people who did what
they forgot about Allah? And so Allah cause them to forget about themselves, their own objectives. What does it mean they forgot about Allah subhanho wa Taala did they forget the names of a lot? No, they didn't.
Did they forget
Quran no they didn't. They still reciting it. Did they forget the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Muslim says on the law there was a lamb.
The Prophet sallahu wa sallam said the most stingy of those who mentioned me, those mich me they don't say someone loved them.
They did not forget the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
they are referring to his son or to his person, but they forgot about their objectives, they forgot about the orders of a loss upon what Allah they have become negligent. And this is why he says,
Do not be like those who forgot about a loss upon $1. Because when they have that happens, he caused them to forget their own selves. What is their own selves, here, it means their mission. It means this substance, it means their purpose. They forgot their objective. When they forgot their purpose themselves, their objective and their mission, they became facetune. negligent criminal.
A very good Hadith from the prophets, a lot of money was stolen. And brothers and sisters, since all of you living in this country should be by now fairly
conversant with the English language for the sake of time, I won't recite all of these delay in Arabic.
I'll give you the references, or you can get the references because they are popular, they're well known. So I'll read them for you in English.
Now, one of the reasons
for this condition is that the Muslims have become preoccupied.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a time will come
when the nations of the world will invite
themselves towards you.
a group of people that are hungry, will invite themselves to a plate of food when it is placed in their midst outcome economists who like to say
the companions of the Prophet SAW a lot of them was surprised.
And they asked him, Well, this because at that time, we will be in the minority, there will only be a few of us. This is how they were thinking.
He said no, the anthem Casio. Now you will be at that time in the majority. You will be a great number. Are we a great number? Yes, we are. We hear the Muslims talking about we hear the statistics. 1.4 billion Muslims 1.4 billion wet matches.
nothing you can do with them except recycle them
and produce more matches that you can strike over again. When they're dry.
Then the profit some of our lives and he went on
to tell them why this condition would exist. He said
your enemies, your enemies
will have no respect and no fear of you.
Is this the case today? Has not the United Nations held by the United States United States
has not United Nations. So Freudian slip? Has not the United Nations headed by the United States
have not de invited
the nations to form a coalition
a world coalition a new world order to do what
to select from the Muslims whichever they like a buffet and they talk to each other like that. Would you like today? Palestine? Afghanistan, Kashmir, Somalia, Shi Shan, Pakistan, Afghanistan. What do you like? The question what they always have for each other? What do they have? Why do we need it? What can we do with them?
So the profits alasa mentioned and they do this blatantly without any
consideration, no respect. They take and go and invade and rape and kill and massacre do whatever they want to do. And then after that,
they set up humanitarian foundations to invite us to their countries to live, give us citizenship, and give us safety and make us democratic. make us feel real good. And make sure we never go back to those lines to change our conditions.
So the prophet SAW lost him he went on. He said your enemies will have no respect to no fear of you.
And you, you Muslims will be like gufa a sale.
You will be like the bubbles on the on the ocean when it goes to the shore and comes back. Bubbles froth foam, fresh stone
means that no substance, you will have no substance.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala will strike something in your hearts called one.
These were Arabs. They didn't know what is meant by when
they asked him Yasuo law What is that?
He said to them hotbird dunya wirkkala here to Mount
hotbit dunya means preoccupation, attachment in ordinate attachment, preoccupation, involvement,
being submerged in the dunya.
Baccarat hitting mount means hating death. But it means more than that. It means not wanting even to be wounded, not even wanting to be disturbed, not even wanting to be bothered.
If it's going to lead to something like injury and maybe death, that means they have given up the idea of jihad.
preoccupation, they have become also polarized polarized how
polarized by ideological groups.
So the Muslims among themselves are competing with one another with ideologies. You got this group, you got that group right here in this room.
And the Muslim feel the need not to call themselves Muslims, but they feel the need among other Muslims to call themselves a particular name.
And this name this adapting of names, however, God intended it is has caused polarization among the Muslims, we need to stop that.
Let the kind of Muslim that you are be known by your behavior.
Take the names off the sheets, take the names off the doors, take the names off the mosques.
Take the names off your shirts, take the names off of your gatherings
just for yourself Muslims.
If you say you're following the Quran and Sunnah, you don't need to call yourself God and He's
We don't need to do that.
We understand that it's making a distinction, making a statement making a clarification. We understand what that means, but it's unnecessary.
Let your actions speak louder than your words.
The prophet SAW a lot of sense that I came to perfect what good manners, good manners, our our our dialogue
should be through our manners. Not through the pamphlets, not through the booklets
the polarization of the groups of the Muslims all over the world is creating another problem for the Muslims. That is the Muslims can't get at, they can't begin to mobilize towards the enemies of Islam because of their fighting each other polarizing each other. I go to places where Muslims are and there's a Masjid here, and another Masjid across the street and another Masjid up the street. And they don't even talk to each other.
I'm talking about in a non Muslim country.
Three events called and the people who belong to those groups instinctly come out of their homes and go to pass to messages and go to another one.
And don't even talk to each other.
It's called polarization. And why is it I'm talking about three different masters that are built by people that come from one country now.
This because before they came from that country, they were already polarized.
Want to call themselves a suitable Jamaat
Ahad is another group called himself Braille with another group called themselves something else.
And only because of these names, even in passing each other, they don't even say Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.
So we have to remove this polarization because this is one of the indications of our defeat.
The other is deviation.
We want to be Muslims we want to talk about Islam.
But we ourselves are not familiar with the code and
we're not familiar with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And we prefer
our culture, we prefer our ethnicity, we prefer our own particular scholars than we do.
The direct understanding of the Quran the other three generations.
For us, there is clear guidance, understanding application of the Quran from the three generations that the prophets have lost them guaranteed for us.
Allah subhanho wa Taala told us there is for you in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. locka Ghana leconfield Rasulullah
There is in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam in his behavior in his Sunnah which we can obtain through authentic a hadith and records.
The best, most powerful, profound pattern of conduct
and then there is nationalism,
nationalism among the Muslims. We don't say nationalism, we all say that we are brothers, but just watch and see how the Muslims act even inside of a Masjid
the Somali brothers into the masjid and they look to talk with Somali brother,
Yemeni brother does the same Pakistani he do the same Indian he does the same Saudi even though they're all Arabs. Now Saudi does the same. Jordanian does the same. Everybody looks for their own people to sit with, to organize with, to be with, to eat with, to call and to come and to invite and to go.
And this happens not only here, but it happens everywhere.
The message of a loss of a lot of them he wanted to dispel this. He wanted Muslims not to do that. Allah subhanaw taala created us that way. where we are with our tongues with our colors with our countries. But Allah made us brothers and Allah subhana wa tada wanted to make this Islamic brotherhood. He wants to make every other collection every other fraternity and every other influence among the Muslims subordinate to brotherhood. He said in the movement noona What? at work?
Firstly, who may awaken
so my soul My case law? How do we make a slot among the brothers? We do this by
pushing down modifying
those tendencies. Eliminate if you can, the ethnic cultural tendencies, I asked you a question and ask yourself the question. When's the last time that you as whatever ethnicity that you are that you purposely in the masjid sat down next to another brother who live on the other side of the world and ask him how does he feel? What's his children's names? And actually, why don't you come to my house for dinner so I can know who you are? When's the last time you did that? brothers and sisters?
Maybe you never did it.
Do Muslim brothers and sisters
Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said to us in the Quran. Woman afternoon column on a national
town a man died in a love bombing saw the
Wakanda in nanny widow muslimeen. So Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said yes, definitely. Who? Who is better, who is more excellent
than the one that calls towards the loss of power dialer, not just calling, not just shouting, not just arguing.
Well, I'm sorry. But they are acting upon what they are calling. They are setting a precedent for what they are calling to.
They have established a behavior, a paradigm and example to what they are calling to and they openly say
announced a Muslim
you see three steps calling towards the loss upon Allah tala calling towards the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala
acting upon it, so as to set up an example of it that you're calling people to. And then the third thing, announcing yourself and looking like Muslims all the time.
Allah subhanaw taala said, in the well known
Auto lsvt big call to the way of your Lord, in what way
call to the way of the Lord What is this appeal of Allah subhana wa tada the severe of a loss upon what Allah is Islam. And what is Islam was the sources of it the Quran and the Sunnah, so called Islam called the Quran and the Sunnah.
Bill hikmah with wisdom will now enter to the hustler.
And with beautiful, convincing arguments, what did he hear
and argue with them in ways that are better than theirs? This means listen to them, evaluate them, be patient, watch them,
and then take their arguments
and reverse it and give them something which is better, more convincing than there's rarely Allah knows best who goes astray from his path and ally knows best what.
Those who are most studied. He knows those best who is guided. The brothers and sisters in Islam call it orientation, call it education, call it propagation. The human being is directly influenced by that which he or she is taught. exposed to. or given. This can be proven through psychology history or through common sense. We've all heard the principle Association breeds assimilation does win loss, Apollo tala gave us this order.
He's a powerful and glorious when he told us about the excellence of the one who invites
he gave us an indication of the power of communication.
Communication. If you don't understand what communication means brothers and sisters, let me give you an example.
If you and your children watch television, this is a statistic.
The sisters and the brothers who bring their young children to these meetings, we love the children as a blessing for you to bring them hamdulillah but it's your responsibility to control them.
Because what we're talking about is not logic on the children they cannot understand it.
But it become binding as a courtesy and an edit upon you and I whether a lecture or whether the Juma prayer.
let me give you this statistic Muslims
If you or your children watch only three to four hours of television a day.
Then how many are you watching? per month?
to 1000 hours of television a month,
I'm sorry, 90 to 100 hours a month. Well, the statistics says that you and your children will witness at least 73,000 acts of harm
in the course of that month
73 acts of
fornication adultery, rebellion to Allah Coco shark, homosexuality, lesbianism, drunkenness, adultery,
line slander, murder, theft,
and we are told and we are prompted to be entertained by it or to laugh at it.
Somewhat so that they did a test and they show
young children after a year of watching television for free. They let them watch it for free.
Then they showed him a picture of an old lady falling down some steps
and all the children left
that was their grandmother
Falling down the steps.
It means that what has happened, those children have become insensitive towards their grandmother.
See what has happened? What do you think about the 73,000? Other x?
multiply those x those 73,000 by tip by 12 months? What does it come 246,000 plus 730,000.
That's what they see every year you and your children if you only watch it three to four hours a day.
Brothers and sisters, communication is one of the most powerful tools
to manipulate and conditioned human beings. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given to you and i a tool of communication,
which we can combat their communication, because if you don't give dour, you, yourself become moody.
You become the object of dour.
So you look at the billboards, you watch the television, you watch, you go to the movies, you go to blockbuster to entertain yourself.
You go to school, and you are told and your children are told what is right and what is wrong, what the world should look like what you should look like. And McDonald's and Burger King tell you have it your own way.
And Coca Cola tells you just do it
And we do.
This is the power of communication brothers and sisters.
So we witness the race and the fierce competition to influence and inevitably control and direct the thinking of human beings through the media, through culture, through education and through the imposition of governmental institutions. This is a form of dour.
Brothers and sisters, you and I are children and all the Muslims worldwide have been compromised, we have been polluted, we have been penetrated, we have been subjected, and we have become subordinate to the dour of the modern world.
Without thinking about it,
you and I are following the prompts, the commands and the invitation of the media, you are buying what they tell you to buy.
You are living where they want you to live.
You are pursuing careers that they tell you are important and critical and vital and will pay you well.
have been influenced and manipulated and invited and controlled by institutions like this one, your friends,
your desires, and your ambitions.
Yes, we are frightened
when we watch on CNN or ABC or one of those other tribes literal names.
When we watch on television,
the fierceness of their bombs exploding in there, and the troops marching in their tanks and their planes and how they talk so arrogant about what the world belongs to them and what everyone else should do because of what they say and the mandate of this and the mandate of that and we and us and our
and we sit glued to the television.
And we can do nothing.
Because we're thinking about the a bomb.
We're thinking about the atomic bomb.
We're thinking about the H bomb, the hydrogen bomb.
Nobody has a bomb like the atomic bomb.
After the emergence of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the whole world was paralyzed.
All of a sudden America stepped up into that position. Out of nowhere Murphy has stepped up into the position became the man of the world
because they dropped a bomb.
Since that time,
other bombs have been dumped
on other people, the H bomb the hydrogen bomb, the neutron bomb,
the smart bomb, they got all these bombs that have what intimidate the Muslims. But brothers and sisters Allah subhanaw taala gave you an eye back 14
In 24 years ago, the D bomb
this album, The D bomb,
blows up no buildings,
breaks no bones, destroys no civilizations.
takes no hostages
does not humiliate anyone does not overturn anything, and does not disgrace anyone.
But it is able by the grace of Allah, it is able to penetrate minds and part instantly
this D bomb this the dollar bomb
now so that
no one will be able to say that brother Khalid you're seeing give a lecture in total Muslim to build a bomb.
Let's make it clear that we are talking about Islamic Propagation.
And I'll give you an instance I'll give you an idea brothers and sisters, what it can do.
what it can do here, or anywhere else in the world where human beings are.
where most of the dominant
culture comes from in the world today seems like everybody in the world wants to be like America.
This year, McDonald's will open up 2000 stores in China. Can you believe that?
2000 McDonald's franchises will open up in China.
The average income of the Chinese is about 196 pounds sterling pounds a year. Now how in the world are they gonna buy a Big Mac?
But they will. The Chinese right now they are lined up. They will throw away their chopsticks
because they had already been preconditioned that if they can't get to America, at least get to McDonald's.
on an average of 42 to 45,000 people accept Islam every year.
Without organized doubt, there's no national Continental dauer agency in America there isn't.
There is no continental or national dollar agency in America.
This is one of the $1
down in the streets down in the universities down on the job one on $1 42 to 45,000 people accept Islam every year in America.
And since I have been a Muslim
more than 2.3 million new Muslims have come in America
2.3 million without organized our
last year, after September 11. More than 78,000 people accepted Islam in America.
You will take that while Muslims have been bashed and distorted, you would think that the number would have dropped? No the numbers increasing.
You see they plan and allow plans and allows the best planners
in the UK on an average of 12 to 15,000 people accept Islam every year, last year after September the 11th 26,000 accepted Islam.
So between the United States and the UK, who happens to be those that are perpetuating? I mean, they are the coalition.
Just in those two societies alone close to 100,000 Muslims 100,000 human beings have been penetrated by the D bomb.
Now you think about it brothers and sisters, I don't know how many Muslims are in Australia. I don't know how many is in Melbourne. They tell me over 400,000 Muslims in Sydney, Australia. I mean, that was new to me. That just blew my mind. I thought I was a little bit intelligent, but I didn't know that.
But given those statistics, let's think about this.
Suppose one out of every 10 Muslims in Melbourne, one out of every 10 Muslims in Sydney, Australia, let's say, let's say 5000 Muslims in Australia, let's say that Who knows?
Who do pray, who are practicing Muslims? Suppose they made it their business at least 30 minutes a day to talk about down to their co workers, to their neighbors, to their colleagues. And they talk to them all year long.
1020 different people, oh, yeah, they just keep talking to them to the end exhibit through their behavior, you don't think out of 20 or 30 people that they talk to all year long, that one of them might take Shahada.
Yes, is a very good chance, they will?
Well, I'll tell you, this brothers and sisters, if you seriously undertake the responsibility and the initiation of Tao,
Because you only need to make an effort. You only need to become unselfish. You only need to uncover the treasure, the people will come just uncover the treasure.
Take the treasure out of your pockets. Take the treasure out of the mosque, take the treasure out of your homes, share the treasure with the people and they will see the difference between the treasure and the trash.
They'll see the difference and then after that act upon it.
Their Muslim brothers and sisters
What do we have to do?
We have to make we have to reform ourselves. Because if we don't reform ourselves, we are not the ones to give down.
Muslims that don't pray.
Muslims that don't have knowledge. Muslims or deviant
Muslims are selling harassment and and and working in haraam occupations. All these Muslims are disqualified for giving Dawa. And even if you do give download, there'll be no agile for you.
We must have to reform ourselves. And let me just say a few things. And don't be angry with me.
I mean, at least I'm here talking to you. Now if you don't want to invite me to come back. That's okay.
But let me give you an instance. And it's not just you, it's us. But this is all over the Muslim world.
Brothers and sisters, how can we expect to invite people to Islam, when we Muslims are in the way.
It's our behavior that is causing much of the distortion about Islam and Muslims,
then you can blame it on America. And you can blame it on France. And you can blame it on the UK. And you can blame it on Russia. And you can blame it on whoever on Israel and blame it on wherever you want to. But blaming will not change your condition.
You and I, we need to look at our own condition and see what it is what kind of picture that we are given to the world.
Brothers and sisters, I just came from a bathroom making room before the salon. And I can't imagine
that a group of Muslims could be in a building and have a bathroom looking that filthy.
But I understand because bathrooms look like that. In Africa, in Asia, in Arabia.
The bathrooms look like that. But the bathrooms don't look like that in McDonald's.
The bathrooms don't look like that in the hospitals.
The bathrooms do not look that way and the institutions that serve us and these countries, the Kaffirs.
So you see brothers and sisters, I'm using a simple example to tell you
that if our bathrooms look like that,
and that's because we are praying that we don't respect the bathroom, we don't wash up after we finished washing waters all on the floor waters all on the same towels all over the bathroom because the Muslims were here.
That's bad down.
You're not going to invite people to come into a dirty place.
We Muslims need to be reformed in our attitude in our behavior. We need to put a picture that people
will want to come towards because what we are being invited towards and what we are buying what we are doing is filthy inside brothers and sisters.
McDonald's or food is worse than dog food.
They should call it make dog,
Honestly, the quality of meat they're serving is less than what the companies that serve pet food require.
Next everyone they should put a Mac clinic
but that's not the issue. Your children when they see that golden arch, they start salivating like Pavlov's dog
because it's the image
is the image is not what's inside it's the image and we Muslims are confused. We think because we have the Quran we have the Sunnah we think because we have the knowledge and the scholars, we think people should come to us and listen to us know our image is wrong. We got to reform ourselves. After that we have to prepare ourselves what is prepared, we have to make Taiwan and to us so
we got to cooperate, network
be concerned about each other, be sensitive about each other work together.
We had to make to ourselves. Allah subhanho wa Taala says what I want to
work with when
he says water was so bill hoppy was was all the sudden he says What the Why so this summary was so bill Muhammad
we have to make you and I to Ischia
purify ourselves if you are engaged in an occupation, where you are doing haraam earning Hello.
Understand brothers and sisters that you are undermining the oma and the image of the oma
and your prayers is worth nothing. Even though there are men and women who go to Hajj every year.
And while they're on Hajj verhalen businesses are still collecting money. And then from the Kaaba saying yada yada.
But the prophets have also said one more time who haraam Well, masaba who Haram, woman de Haram. Well, Julio,
how can they be answered?
When their food is haram, what they drink is haram, what they wear is around, and what they nourish themselves off of is harm.
You and I have to purify ourselves. If there's something that you and I are doing or engaged in, that is immoral and incorrect, we have to change that.
You and I have got to attach ourselves to people of knowledge, whether it be students of a student, students of knowledge students, of scholars, scholars themselves,
student of a student, a student of knowledge, a student of a scholar, or the scholars themselves, or if you can't get to the scholars, their books,
you and I have to attach ourselves until we have correct knowledge.
After that, we have to act on that knowledge.
After that, we have to Ameobi that what to eat a we have to organize. Organization of Tao is not just giving Dawa. That was not just getting some pamphlets and some booklets and putting them in the trunk of your car or putting them in your briefcase and carrying them around in your pocket. And so when you see a non Muslim, just put it in their face or put it in their mailbox that's not dealt with. We're not Jehovah's Witnesses.
This is not our
we have to organize, follow a leader
be under command be accountable.
So that what we do can be looked at evaluated that can be some quality assurance done.
We have to make a commitment for doubt. We have to look at the scope of Tao What is it we're trying to do?
We have to belong to an organization.
Muslims if you do not belong to an organized body of Muslims, what can a Muslim are you?
an organized body of Muslims is a body of Muslims where there is a leader
now he doesn't have to
Have a white turban and a white dove on a white horse.
He doesn't have to be an alum of faqih, he doesn't have to be, he doesn't have to be Turkey, he doesn't have to be a monster head.
He just has to be duly elected by the Muslims to carry the responsibility of
coordinating them and ordering them. It's one of you what is one of us need to be attached to an organized body of Muslims to do what to launch the Dow
to launch the community to do the work that we want to do. And the issue is not building messages, the issue, this is not going to solve our problems.
If this whole university was given to the Muslims, and you build a Masjid in the middle of it, that's not gonna solve the problem.
You got to build Muslims.
We got to build Muslims, and then build Muslim families and then Muslim community under leadership.
And we have to all be engaged in also management. The brothers and sisters in Islam, I think Allah subhanho wa Taala for his nirma effect Allah subhanho wa Taala for the opportunity to
advise myself and to advise the Muslims. I want to remind you that Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioned to us and sudo to know that allies promises those among you who have faith and do righteous actions, that he will certainly grant them the succession of rule that is khilafah in the land,
as he has granted it to those before them, and that he will grant them the authority to practice their religion which he has chosen for them and that he will replace their state of fear for one of safety provided that they worship Him alone.
And not direct worship to others along with Allah subhana wa Tada.
Allah mentioned to us in the Quran,
they wish to extinguish the light of the love of their mouths, the kuffaar but Allah will perfect his light, even though the unbelievers detest it.
It is He Allah subhanaw taala who sent His messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the guidance and religion of truth, that it may prevail over all other religions, even though those who worship others besides the law, may test it.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Indeed, Allah gathered up the earth for me, so that I saw its eastern and its western parts, and indeed, the dominion of my own will reach whatever was gathered up for me from it.
He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
this affair al Islam
will reach whatever is reached by the night and the day. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will not leave a dwelling of brick, no offer except that he will cause this religion to enter into it, bringing either honor or humiliation honor, which Allah grants to Islam, or humiliation, which Allah gives to the unbelievers.
Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned to us
that when Allah subhanho wa Taala has a group of his servants
in any place, and they themselves see an evil, and they do nothing about that evil.
Not only they change it, nor do they speak about it, nor do they hate it in their hearts.
But they allow the evil just to grow, and they grow accustomed to that evil and sit next year, then Allah will visit them with a calamity from his self,
he will visit them with a calamity from himself. See, so the calamity which we are experiencing in many cases, it's not it's not the manner of how the calamity came because when Genghis Khan and the Mongols when they came and slaughtered the Muslims, this was a calamity which was brought upon the Muslims of that time from Allah subhanho wa Taala. All Muslims,
advise you and advise myself to think deeply about this mission, this mandate of dour about this excursion of dour about this operation of dour and that
We prepare ourselves to be people of dour and that we prepare ourselves for this responsibility. All Muslims, you and I have been all about loss upon what Allah to deliver this message, while kuqali had
to panic alarm will be home decor in the shed with either inland water stuff or going on to be like
their brothers and sisters.
I have said,
as much as I can say within the constraints of the time.
I'm not particularly qualified
to say anything to you.
But I see it as an advice and advice for me and advice for you.
I'm responsible for what I said, To the best of my ability. If you have a question, a genuine question on the topic of what I spoke about,
then I will receive your questions, as many as I can within the constraints of the time. But if you have a statement that you want to make,
and you came here with the burning sensation, or to say this statement that I see what you should do is you should rent your own Hall.
And if you have a question,
which is not part of what I said,
then I have no responsibility to answer it. And I asked you not to give me any 50 questions, because I'm not lucky. They are knowledgeable people here in Australia, or there are websites that you can get that answer from so don't try to trick me.
Don't ask me 50 questions or tricky questions.
Just colocado answer D that straightforward. asked me about something I said in the best of my ability, I will answer you about that which I was responsible for
the sisters, my sisters in this lab, I asked you to kindly write your questions so that you don't compromise yourself or you don't need to do so. So write your questions. And as soon as they reach me sisters, I'll guarantee you that I'll begin to respond to them inshallah. As for the brothers, we're all men, I think so.
You know, in America is hard to tell sometimes.
So since we're all men, and this is not a huge place, then if you have a question, raise your hand.
I'll point to you. And you stand up and ask your question now. I think I'll be able to hear you. And if the other people don't, I'll repeat the question. Is that good enough?
Okay, so let's proceed.
It's important, the brother mentioned it our dour to the non Muslims. What should we discuss? And how should we do it?
We should invite people to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Not to our group, not to ourselves,
we should invite people to Allah
meaning that we ourselves should be prepared to give the proposition of tawheed to the people.
Because the Quran has basically three themes. Anywhere you open the Quran up any page, basically, it will address one of three different themes
on the air, or reseller,
or issues relative to the hero.
So when we talk to people make it simple.
of course, I think it's important. I think it has some benefit to for Muslims to understand the background of Christians, their thinking their faith and their dogmas. But I don't agree that Muslims need to take courses in comparative religion.
Because the only comparison that you need to make between Islam and dem is what ally is already made.
And the prophet SAW allows him didn't like for his companions
to use as evidence, the books that came before.
He didn't like that. So
I'd say, just my humble opinion. And I have done that.
I have done the debates and I have done the comparative religion courses and, and there is some benefit in it. But I really think that nothing can be replaced to giving people a direct, direct invitation to the proposition to the tail heat of Allah subhanaw taala to the reseller of Mohammed Salatu. Salam, and to the actions that will guarantee them to be saved from the Hellfire and the possibility of them being able to be received into the, into the gender. So this is my advice. answer to your question, brother.
brother says, should we make TAO to Muslims,
for formerly dour is not to Muslims. Muslim already knows Allah knows how to pray. Maybe he's negligent. Maybe he's fasting. Maybe he's Muslim. Maybe he's Marcy. Maybe he's ignorant, but he's already Muslim. And our Tao is calling people to Allah. Now a Muslim is already a Muslim, we can give him Tallinn, we can give him advice, we can regulate him if we are able to, but to downwards for the non Muslims,
advise our brothers and advise our brother to go to the masjid and pray vies our brother, he shouldn't be acting that way. advise a brother of this or that, but thou itself is for the non Muslims.
Tao is for the non Muslims. Now I understand that there's a group of people that move around the world, and they give us this idea that down to the Muslims should be first. And then after we get the Muslims together, then we're talking about non Muslims. Well, they've been saying that for 50 years.
For 50 years, and another 50 years, we should be just getting down to the Muslims and leave the Catholics alone. So the Catholics have took the whole earth.
Although their aims and objectives are beautiful, that's not consistent with the men hedge of the profits a
sister says, Somali.
What about males stopping females from doing down?
In a halau manner? What about the phenomenon of males, doing downward to females, especially on universities,
the brothers who discourage the sisters from doing dowel, or the brothers who prevent them from doing dowel, or the brothers that do not encourage them to do down all the brothers that don't facilitate the sister to do down, these brothers have the mentality that they have brought from the rest of the Muslim world.
women, just for your knowledge, women in the Western world, multiply faster, meaning that they number more than men.
And the profits last them said I feel for my fitness greater than what that of women.
And also, I'll tell you this brothers and sisters, that in my experience in the dollar courses and our training that we have given always the sisters who come they excel the brothers.
And let me give you another statistic.
In the Western world, especially Western civilization, or the western, or the civilizations that have been affected and controlled by the West, including Australia, generally speaking, the ratio is 2.5 women for every man 2.5 women for every male 2.5 females for every male. When I say honestly men, I said males.
Now when you add when you would 2.5. Now when you add the men who are homosexuals, that's 3.5.
When you add those as playboys don't want the responsibility as 4.5
when you had those that are shiftless, dysfunctional,
irresponsible, that's 5.5.
When you add those is locked up in jail, that's 6.5. We add those that are drug addicts and alcoholics that 7.5 when you add those that go to war, and until that's 8.5 so now how many males two females Do you have fine
in the western civilization's,
We are in civilization brothers and sisters where we need as many Muslim sisters committed to Tao up.
We need it, and we should facilitate it.
In the masjid, we should have an equal amount of space for the women to function as the as we do for the men.
It should be just as clean, it should be just as organized. And there should be an allotment of space for them just like that of men. It's okay if you want to separate build a wall or a curtain or separate place, do whatever you like to fulfill the issue of hijab do that. But why should the woman have a backdoor into a dirty place that's dark and different from that of the men? Why? Who said that?
Who said that?
Why is that the case, it comes from a mentality, we got removed that mentality.
The sisters should be given the same amount of time, energy resources to do their dour and some times should be given to them either by sisters who have knowledge or by brothers who have knowledge to train those sisters to do. And you'll find the Dow move faster when you have systems that are committed to doubt.
This is my experience.
When I got into like a bucket
to put them over here.
I'm just gonna take them randomly you don't mind?
Are these all for the sisters?
Okay, good. Let me take a
question from the brothers then. The brother mentioned that since September the 11th. Many Muslims are afraid to give down because the Kufa will then say, Well, are you a Muslim? Do you know how to make a bomb?
For brother, look, let me just say this to you.
If you are afraid to say who you are, because of how they think, then what they have done is they have completed their job.
They're not afraid to invite your children, your wife, your daughter, your sister, they are not afraid to offer them whatever filth they have.
Not since September 11. But for the last 10 2030 years here or in the country you came from. So why are we fearful to talk to them about Islam because we happen to be living in that country?
Brothers and sisters, we cannot be reactionaries. We have to be proactive, not reactive.
This is our job to answer them. If they say Are you a Muslim? Yes, I am.
Well, what is Islam? Or ask them? Do you really know about Islam? Not what you read in the newspapers, not what you saw on television. But do you really know something about Islam? If you don't, I'm a Muslim. Why don't you and your family come to my house for dinner.
But our problem is Muslims, we don't really want to invite them to our houses.
And we don't want to go to their houses.
We want to talk to them in the street on a bus stop.
We won't talk to them in the corridor of a school. That's how we want to get down or we want them to come to the masjid where we pray and take off their shoes and socks and sit in some little dirty place while we pray and talk to them in a circle.
That's what we want to do. That's not
the best advice.
When the messenger of lost a lot of Sam went to Medina Managua on the Hydra
Medina at that time was not the city of the prophets allows him was it was it
He was invited there by a group of Muslims who also was asking for someone to arbitrate on their behalf. Because the city at that time was under the possibility of the prospect of civil war. They needed the skills of an arbitrator, like the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
The first thing the Prophet Salas them did when he went there. One of the first issues that he said he told us his companions took a long time what a
man or a woman.
This is something simple, spread food. Give the invitation and answer the invitation and do what give the Sadam give the greeting to who you know and whom you don't know.
If we are not open Muslims, direct Muslims and we can answer a simple question and if we are afraid of what they blame us, brothers they gonna be blaming us for now on what is the difference? What's the matter? We're not afraid of the blame. If they say to us, how did you make a bomb? Tell them
tell them I'll tell you how we make a bomb. But it's not the a bomb. It's not the H bomb. It's not the N bomb. It's not a smart bomb. It's the D bomb.
Now sit right here for a minute while I put it together for you.
Someone say Could you please remind? Especially the smallest systems to mix?
gifts to the white sisters?
No, don't don't don't laugh. This is something that sister is meeting is what happens is what happens?
This is what happens. I have a new wife.
And before we got married, she told me her experiences
every master she goes to because she's from Spain. How to Bangladeshi sisters Look at her like she's crazy. How to Somali sisters Look at her like she doesn't belong there. How the out of sister Look at her how this one looks at her. They don't give no doubt. They don't do no teaching no nothing. All they do is like look strange, like she's an alien or something like that.
So this happens also to many other new Muslims. And this ratio thing, I spoke on it already. Brothers and sisters, we got to get rid of this racial thing.
Get rid of it. It's filthy. It's an Islamic.
It's part of the cultural baggage that you brought. And the country you live in. They love it. They promote it. They want you to be Somali Muslims, Yemeni Muslims, Gujarati Muslims, Saudi Muslims, just as long as you put something in front of Islam, they like it, they can tolerate it. But they don't want you just to be Muslims. And they don't just want Islam.
They want it to have that culture in front of it. Because that's how they can keep it down and modified and identified. Get rid of it. Brothers and sisters that can i can tell you just get rid of it is something outside of our religion.
Sister says as you probably aware, there are quite a few Islamic centers here in Melbourne. But unfortunately, they are not united as one. Well, they need to they need to make Taiwan because what are they inviting people to invite people to them to their office to this center?
What's the need for that? Why wouldn't five Tao organizations, why wouldn't they meet once a month?
And put their minds together on putting together some
materials that represent all the Muslims of Australia? Why wouldn't they do that?
Why wouldn't they come together? And not just bringing together two or 300 Muslims? But why wouldn't they put something together and bring together 5000?
Why would need our organizations come together and not give a lecture in this lecture hall? But select the best gathering place in Melbourne
510 1000 seats
and invite the whole city of Melbourne to hear the word of Allah subhanaw taala Why won't they do that?
Do you think that the word of the last panel medalla doesn't deserve to be heard. And that non Muslims will not come to hear it
in a place with where you can where you can seek five or six or 7000 do you think that? No, they will. But you have to make the sacrifice. You have to think that way. You have to think like they think because when the Kaffirs come together and invite other Kaffirs to slender the profits, a lot of them
to slander the prophet to curse Allah subhanho wa Taala to invite people to say Esau is the son of Allah stuff for lemon Valley. When they do it. They do it in stadiums.
And they make sure that they drop off a few of these flyers at the mosque.
So what are we afraid of?
What the sister she mentioned is correct. there another question from the brothers. Yes. Okay.
Brother said should a Muslim be a religious scholar again?
Tao, No brother, we do not have clerics.
We don't have priests.
is a person who distributes knowledge, students of knowledge, go to the scholars so that they can be representative of that scholar and his knowledge and distribute. But we individually, the Messenger of a loss of last name said badly who annoys me.
While I preach, teach, spread from me wherever you have, if it's only an iron,
if you know who Allah is, tell the people, if you know who the prophets have lost him, tell them if you know the outcome of Islam, tell them you know how to kill him and explain to them you explain as much as you can. And when you get your limit.
Give them something to read, or take them to somebody who has more knowledge than you have. But each one of us have the obligation to do our and we cannot leave down upon the scholars. And we can sit and wait for scholars to come and lecture to us. This is not our manner, brother. We don't do that. We don't need to do that. There's enough people right here in Melbourne, Australia that have enough knowledge of the Quran, knowledge of the Sunnah knowledge of Islam to be able to teach the people of this city. And from now every now and then we bring a scholar, we bring a student of knowledge from somewhere else. We bring a brother like Khalid Jesse who knows how to talk, we can bring him to talk
a little bit, but you don't need
college se you don't need jamala Ds Allah bozo, you don't need a scholar for land for land to come from Saudi Arabia, Syria to come here talk to you about dour or to talk to the non Muslims about Dawa. In fact, let me just tell you this, just so that you know, this brother in Saudi Arabia, and this is casting no aspersions on anybody who happens to be from Saudi Arabia, I'm just giving giving you the facts.
In Saudi Arabia,
most of the non Muslims who become Muslims in Saudi Arabia, they don't become Muslims because they went to a scholar.
And that's in that country.
I told you, it's one on one person to person, individuals who themselves feel inside their hearts commitment to do dour. That's the way it is them. And that's the way it is here. And that's the way it is everywhere. You are responsible for dour, according to your ability, and I am responsible, according to my ability will allow an
assistant as well the lecture for non Muslims be segregated. And will a woman be prevented from asking questions. As far as I'm concerned, it will not be segregated.
But I'm not the controller, I'm not the organizer.
If I'm in America, of a nominee UK,
I will make sure that women are seated in such a way that everything is decent, and that we are respectful of the Islamic principles. But if a non Muslim woman wants to come and ask a question, we can't force her to go in some back room and put on a hijab.
We can't force her to do that. nor can we force her to go behind a curtain
and remind the brothers about this issue. That women came in the message of the Prophet sallallahu snam and asked him questions directly. And at that time, there was no curtain in the masjid and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Now understand the issue of the times we live in and the fitna of women and lipstick and the tight jeans and the blah, blah, understand all that. But as the men feel lost upon dollar, keep looking front and worry about what's in bag.
do our best but understand. We're not in Somalia, without Arabia.
We're not in the Sudan.
We're not in Egypt, you're in Australia.
So you got to compromise, not the sun nor the Qur'an. But you've got to use your mind to create an environment that you don't prevent access, and you don't intimidate. And at the same token, you don't put people in a situation that they themselves field demeanor. They feel themselves that
they someone has disrespected them. So I say the brothers who organized whatever they do on Wednesday, I'll do my best to express my views. But at the same token, it's not my responsibility. So what I'm going to do is I'm coming to whatever environment the brothers provide, I might advise them this to that.
But at the end of the day, I think that's what people say here, right? At the end of the day, I'm going to basically do what I have to do within the context of the brothers and sisters who set up the organization.
Somebody says, look, bro,
so it must be a non Muslim that asked this question, because a Muslim wouldn't call me bro.
This kind of vernacular is not consistent with Islam. Forget about the fact that I'm 56 years old. And that seems like this person is a young person, because I don't think this will be an old fool.
So if this is a non Muslim, you're excused, you don't know the Edit. If this is a Muslim who's talking to me, then I'm probably the age of your father. So I'm not brought to you.
And if I don't think it was the sister that asked this question, but anyway, let me just answer it. I realized this topic is irrelevant. So if it's irrelevant, that I won't answer it.
I told you from the beginning, and the brother told you from the beginning, if it's irrelevant, it won't be answered. Now. If you got a question for me that had nothing to do with the topic, I will be available
for three days here, and I don't mind
people who themselves got problems are they are issues that they think somehow or another that maybe I should address, or they have a problem with something I said, and they want to say look, bro,
I'll be available for that. But that's not for him.
A Santa Monica said brother, there is a young lady among us who hamdulillah made the choice to convert on Friday, Mashallah robotic Allah. Yet, when she went to the masjid to convert the shake, turned her away and told her to go and learn to pray and come back in a week. It's upon Allah. What should the young woman do? And was it correct? I'm not going to speak on what the Shaykh did, because I don't know his reasoning. And I don't want to make any, say any statements about
what a person of knowledge or responsibility did.
But what I can say is that the sisters who are around that, first of all, no one has to if a person accepts Islam, you don't have to bring them to the mosque to no shake.
This is not part of the ritual. There's no ritual like that. We don't have any priests in Islam. So priests don't have to admit No, have to put no rights on anybody. We don't have a body of water in the back of the masjid to be dipped. There's no baptismal. There's no ceremony. The Shahada, inviting people to Islam is talking to them, giving them the proposition and then asking them to say, La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. or asking them to say, a shadow in a in a in a law wash de la sharika, wash under Mohammed, Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if they say that, then you sisters,
teach that sister how to wash and pray.
You don't need to take her to the masjid to a shake. Who chose to come back a week later, maybe the Shaykh had a reason maybe if there was something that you wanted him to do. He wasn't available for a week, maybe. But you sisters who are Muslims, you take that sister home, show her what to do, wash and pray, and maybe in a week's time, bring it back to the Shaykh.
If he said come back in a week, you spend the time with that sister, how to wash how to pray and how to be Muslim. So focus on take it to the masjid see the shape and then after that continue with that sister, maybe in a month's time, if three or four sisters interact with that Muslim sister in a month's time she has forced a lot together.
And the brothers Yes, sir.
Is the limitation exactly when exactly should we stop without
Each one of us should go to our own individual limit.
Patience, of tolerance of resources of time.
Make the investment that you can make you know your ability. Now someone curse Allah subhana wa Taala.
First of all, I say this pick and choose your dour don't just talk to people indiscriminately.
Talk to people that are nearest to you, a colleague. If he respects you, he's not going to curse the law.
Your colleague will not disrespect your mother even How will he disrespect the law. If he respects you, our dowel should have a basis. The best basis for dour is good relationship. Your colleagues that you go to school with your neighbors that you live next to your co workers that you work and interact with every day. These are the first prospects for dour your relatives, if they're non Muslims, because all of these are people that know you and there's a basis for your inviting them. Don't indiscriminately go all over the university inviting people to Islam. They don't even know you from a campaign.
Why should you invite somebody else? Who doesn't know you when all the people that are around you that No, you haven't invited them? Why should I invite others to Islam, I didn't talk to my family.
So if you talk to people who know you, usually those people that know you,
they will not curse you. They will not curse your family. They will not disrespect your religion. But if they do, be prepared to be tolerant, don't just give up right away. say to them, this is not good behavior. I would never speak that way to you. I would never speak that way even about your religion.
So you know, I think really if you and I are going to talk again, you need to curb yourself need to correct yourself. So I'm just saying to you what I would do and what I have done and I have found that ignorant people, angry people, people themselves that say things out of reaction and preconditioning if you are patient over a period of time, you might find later on that same person comes back and apologizes to you and may become a Muslim.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is Japan who was a man
a person whatever person says about Allah Spano tala
is on him you Be patient I don't say sit there while he continued to curse the last panel without and just sit there no but don't react and don't give up.
Because the last Apollo dial is far above being home but whatever they say. And a law is far above benefiting from whatever they do.
So we should not get reactionary because suddenly say about a law or something they said about the Prophet Muhammad SAW stem sometimes that is one of the things a person does to test you to see what you are about. Don't you remember that person? I believe it was a yahoodi in the Sierra that came in the message of the prophet SAW a lot of him and grabbed him by his his shirt so that even a mock was made on his neck demanding what
a dead isn't it? What's the companions wants to do for that person?
They want to kill him. Now the prophet SAW said and said No, don't do that he has hung over me.
Is there any one of you can help me to pay this debt?
And whose man even affair the loan offered?
Some day palms which he had outside of Medina?
And then that person said, No, I only came to test you to see how you will act. If you are in fact a prophet, you will act normal. And if you were not, you will disrespect me in this anime.
I shall do Allah Allah in the law wash under Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. We have many examples like this. So I say each one of us should take it to the limit of our own ability.
To ask the question, I think as a sister as a Muslim, what are my responsibilities to tonight?
oh two, I'm not sure can read the handwriting the Muslims in all one of my responsibilities towards the Muslims in Iraq.
Will I be guided by Allah? Or will I be responsible? I'm not sure what to say. I will not be asked by law for not doing anything about that situation. Brothers and sisters. We should have feelings for all the Muslims.
The Muslims who are
oppressed, who are persecuted, who are suffering everywhere in the world. But brothers and sisters, you cannot help
and respond to every situation in the world.
And if you didn't have a television or radio, you will even know what's happening the rest of the world.
You would hear about it, and you would feel about it. But because you've got that great big 27 inch television playing all the time, your emotions are being played on all the time radio, newspapers, and so what happens, we become reactionaries. With it, we need to do something for Iraq.
But we don't even do anything for ourselves.
You can change your house, you can change yourself, you can change your family, you can change your neighborhood, you can change the organization that you belong to, you can change the society where you are, then maybe we can change the world. But if we can't change ourselves, what are we gonna do with the rest of the world brothers and sisters, that's like the brothers and sisters who always talking about khilafah, khilafah, khilafah, Islamic State, Islamic State,
the brother, most of them that talk this way, they don't even come to the fudger prayer.
They don't come to the fudger prayer, they can't beat the sheets.
They cannot erect a plan to get up out of the bed. They can't set a clock. But they want to point to enough.
They want to build Islamic State to rule the world. But they can't organize their own lives to get up out of the bed. I tell them when I talk to them, and they got those questions for me. I say Meet me at Pfizer we talk about that.
Is it is it? Is it permissible for Muslims to rally?
Let me just say this to you brothers and sisters. I don't say rallying marching, protesting shouting is nothing. It is something I mean, it's something is always better than nothing. You know, that's when you say something is better than nothing. I mean, if you can't do anything else, but spit at them. You could that's okay.
But that's not gonna do much.
See, rally marching, shouting is just like doing the job right doing the hedge.
A million and a half 2 million people is doing the jump right in the heart just to correct that don't do anything. That's a term. That's a symbol for us.
Now, I understood that. About a month ago, I was in I was in London. But a month ago. I was in the UK. And 400,000 Muslims marched
400,000 marched against the war in Iraq. didn't stop the war.
400,000 Muslims spent on average 30 to 50 Sterling pounds that day to come to that March and go back home add that money up
400,000 times 30 to 50 pounds. That means this thing on average of 40 pounds. So 40 pounds times 4000 people how much money is that? You mathematician? You intelligent brothers and sisters? How much fun is that? Huh?
No, no, no, I said 400,000 people times 40 pounds
Now how many matches how many universities? How many clinics? How many? How many houses? How many institutes could they have built that day in the UK
where they could have reformed themselves and their children so that perhaps they don't wind up in a situation like that.
And after it's all over it, nobody comes back home.
Go and get in that bed and get up the next morning. Most of those 400,000 people that went on that March did not prefer to the next morning.
So I say that
you can do something if something is better than nothing.
But we need to look to the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and see did he do that?
Was that his way of demonstrating against too far? And what does it amount to? Second thing is who wasn't organized by I'll tell you it was organized by the
The coalition to stop the war. Now, who is the coalition to stop the war? Does anybody know who they are?
homosexuals and lesbians.
coalition to stop the war, PhD graduates, intelligent, resourceful people who also contact messages and tell them that as Muslims, they need to be involved in the Muslim do get involved.
But who would have been organized by?
And while those people while those people concerned about Iraq? Were they concerned about iraq while the sanctions were going on? Were they concerned about Iraq, when the Desert Storm took place? No, they're concerned now. Because they're thinking that this situation might trigger a World War. And the bread on their table and the quality of their lives might be affected. They're not thinking about the Muslims at all.
But the Muslims go lickety split, and we get involved, and we are that tag be Allah white, but be Allahu Akbar.
And we've been organized and manipulated by somebody else. No, I don't agree with it. And I don't do it. But I don't say that those who do it are wrong. So I'm not gonna criticize, and I'm not gonna stop anybody do what you want to do, but I'll guarantee you, it's not gonna change the way kaphas what they do, they're gonna do what they're gonna do anyway.
Somebody said, I just want to ask that lately. People are saying that the MACD has come, and he is already someone.
He's already in someone's stomach.
Guess that was? That was a little bit too technical for me. I can't handle that.
person that asked that question. Maybe there was something else you intended and I didn't read it. Right. If that's the case, I will be available to talk to you about that. So that that particular question or issue can be addressed, but I didn't understand it correctly. Or maybe I didn't read it right. So I don't want to disrespect the question. Yes, well,
men should give doubt to men. Unless an extraordinary unusual situation takes place where you find yourself necessary to sit with some women or a woman to give dour but even in that case, you need to protect yourself and protect that sister from halwa.
So you don't be alone. And if you can avoid the fitna that happens naturally when men and women is talking if you can do that, save yourself and refer that sister to some sisters because in most cases, there are some sisters that not only it would be more appropriate but in many cases there are some systems that might even be better suited to deal with that situation than UI so I say that brothers should be careful that they don't allow their lower head
to Super supersede that up ahead.
Cuz sometime the Dow is not coming from the top
the same thing go with the sisters sisters don't think you sitting up in some place talking to some brother bought some debt, some capital busting down talking to him about last panel what to either you know, and you should know about this lamb and brother and so and so and you know, just about so and so and my name is Layla.
You find yourself in trouble system telling you. So generally speaking, sisters give down to the sisters, brothers give down to the brothers. Unless the extraordinary situation takes place. Then do down. Lower your gaze, guard your modesty. Do your job, move on. It gives somebody a reference. That's all.
Brother, I'm just working place work in place, study place, walk in place, live in place, whatever. I'm just telling you. Don't make no excuses and bring something on yourself brother. Yo, crochet town is slick.
Believe me brothers
shaytaan he got a bag for the tricks. Look to the story of use of La snam brother, man Come on use it was the Prophet isn't he?
Now there's some women
who have some geils. And some ways I told a story the other night, I only told the story, tell the story of the night about the shake,
a shake, a knowledgeable shake.
Who was called us I've given down to a sister.
find yourself sitting on the front porch, given her down and what nothing wrong, it just you know, he offered him some food, he's sitting down eating and it started pouring down rain, it
shouldn't have no covering on the porch. And so she just said to the shape, we should just come right inside here and just finish your food. And I'll go in the back. That sort of shape just stood in the doorway like was kept eating, and the door just closed. And when he turned around the system was there with no clothes on.
Now, this is unusual situation, but it can happen. Now I don't know how you would act, how I would act. But that's not a situation we want to find ourselves in.
I can't I don't have to tell you the rest of the story.
He did shake me talbo.
Sometimes, I hesitate to speak about Islam directly with my peers in the university because I hear they may I fear they may feel I am being pushy don't. So I just try to behave well. That's it says behave well say little and do much.
You don't have to do a lot of talking.
You don't have to be aggressive.
You know, we're not again, we're not job witness. And we're not those guys that ride around on bicycles in the backpack.
We don't have no mandate to knock on 3040 $50 a day. And we don't have to walk around with to every car for putting a pamphlet in their face or they should be Muslim. Now just develop relationships naturally. And through your behavior you find out that non Muslims will ask you,
sister, can I ask you a question? Do you have to wear that? What Why do you Why do you stop? Why did you go pray? isn't that difficult? Aren't you hot wearing those clothes? What does Islam mean? Why are you Muslim? in these days and times? Are you married? Why do you have children? How can your husband this and that they'll ask you the questions. Now when they ask you the questions. Look for the trigger word, the trigger words.
And then you answer.
You don't have to push you don't have to be aggressive. The questions will come naturally.
Can we pray?
canoed? I think this is the same.
I think she's saying can we pray the canoe prayer?
I'm not sure but I'll leave it there for a moment.
I heard that Coca Cola, a proud sponsors of the assault on Iraq. Yet I see brothers and sisters in the room drinking Coca Cola. Well,
if we weren't gonna drink any soft drinks that contributed to Zionism or
or oppression in the world, we wouldn't be drinking no soft drinks.
And I don't think it's just Coca Cola. Do you think that anything is different between Pepsi Cola and coca cola? You just don't know yourself.
And I don't think the issue so much is stopped drinking Coca Cola or Pepsi Cola, whatever. I think it's an internal situation. We need to sometime boycott ourselves.
I mean, put yourself under scrutiny, put yourself under check. Arrest your own tendencies. regulate yourself make a commitment to the Dow yourselves then you won't continue being
manipulated by all these so called conspiracies. You know, the Muslims on should not have suicides done. You know that is
bad thinking. paranoid everybody's. Everybody's plotting on a scheming on us. You know, you're always looking around and pointing at people is this one and that one? No porn. It's yourself.
What did the Prophet Yunus do?
When the fish swallowed him? What did he say?
Who knows the De
La Ilaha Illa? Anta
sapan aka in nee goon
Nobody me, blame yourself,
we inside the belly of the fish, but don't blame the fish, blame yourself. And maybe Allah will call that fish that we in the swim to the shore and vomit us out on the shore, maybe alone will rescue us if we blame ourselves and correct ourselves first.
Someone says, How can we reduce the impact of TV? Well, if you can lock that beast up.
I mean, the TV itself is not itself as an instrument, how long? That's not my opinion. Now, there are some people who say that the TV by itself, period, just just a box with no picture on it.
But it's the images, the programming that comes on it. Now you and I have some control over that. There are several things that we can do. We can promote
Islamic enterprise to create an alternative media for us. And that's what one of the things Islamic teaching Institute is doing. By the way. I don't know if the brothers and sisters are walking around with some buckets like this for donations, but they should.
Because this question prompts me to tell you that the Islamic teaching Institute has, by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala, we have been given the only license in Europe, for a cell or Islamic satellite television station.
Now we are waking up with a group of brothers in
Sydney, who have won Islam
media production studios.
Now for us to produce programming for that station 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it will cost about 6 million Sterling pounds a year.
But allow give what he want to give from whom he wants to give it to. And we believe that if he gave us the license, that what we need will come
the studio will produce help us to produce the programming the station,
the station will provide the launching pad, you Muslims will provide the support for you.
So now that's an alternative to what we're talking about here. That's an alternative, it means that you can throw your TVs out or don't have any TVs inside the house at all. Or you can control the TV, you can buy a television, where you can block out every channel on that television except the ones you want to watch.
Or you can block it out with a timer. And you brothers have enough technological experience to know how to do this. You can put a timer on a TV where it just simply doesn't come on until you get home.
Or you can support
Muslim enterprise who is engaged in developing an alternative media industry. That's what you can do. Non Islamic cheesiest to that's what it's that's one of the things it's engaged in doing. And if the brothers who organize this year, if for some reason or another, they are hesitant to collect money on behalf of this kind of activity, what we usually do whenever we gather people together for download of a teaching or otherwise,
we always ask them to contribute towards this effort. So they can gain the algebra to help us to do what we're doing. If you want to contribute, you can put it in a bucket or you can come drop it here on the desk, or you can see me in the room or you can give it to the organizers and what we will do is we will give half to the organizers so they can do some other things they need to do. And the other half will take for the one Islam studios in Sydney and for the Islamic teaching Institute so that it can foster the Islamic information networks and I'm talking to you about
the sister says is around to watch and I got five minutes so I'm not gonna be able to answer the rest of all those questions. Is it around watch CNN BBC. I wouldn't say it's wrong to do so. But I'm not the person to give fatwa or to make hokum esfp
you mentioned the
When I get down with Should I speak about the oppressed nations? I'm not I'm not calling people to the oppressed nations, I'm calling people to Allah. So
there are Muslims all oppressed all over the world. And I can talk about oppression if that's the nature of my talk. But I'm calling people to Allah, calling people to the prophets, a lot of them calling people to the Quran, calling people to Islam. And so I don't want to divert my call to the Muslims.
Because that's a different call. But in in, in the course of talking to people about world affairs, physical walk or other things, yes, we can mention that. We can Yes, no doubt about it.
I want to know if a so called Muslim government that implements westernized rulings, can you say that that specific country cannot be stated as a Muslim?
Okay, that's, that's not quite pertinent and might be alone.
It might be something that I could answer a little bit later on.
How to be how to be deputy.
The Muslim that has been polluted, or how to be deep polluted. The Muslim ban has been polluted by the government and their country. The profits lost them said
it tackled law. Hi, Americans.
What I say yeah, we'll have Tim who had maharlika. Nice behold, you can
follow up on the promises. Awesome. Said 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 the human beings.
Brothers and sisters. At this point, we want to end our session. Not that we want to but we have to.
And we want to thank everyone that came. And if the organizers have an appropriate place for me to sit to receive a few
individuals who may have some pertinent questions, I'll do that.
I only had about six more questions left. So really,
I don't think there's that many people that I really need to sit and talk with. But if there are if the brothers have an appropriate place, I'll be there for maybe another 20 minutes or so. I want to thank you very much the product along with the Hyundai Kona Chateau La La Land.
What is the purpose of life of life?
Why is it that when we ask the simple question, what is the purpose of our lives?
Why do we get so many different answers?
Is because people haven't really thought about it.
It's too frightening.
Not the question itself is frightening. But what's frightening is that if we answer it clearly, it may change our lives. indelibly and we are afraid of change.
And now we have discovered that every part of creation that has been discovered is inside of a drop of water.
Or the Quran already said that to us 1500 years ago that we created everything in every single thing from water to Quran said that
we want to talk this evening about
Jesus, the son of Mary
and his phenomenal birth.
that very few human beings, whether Muslims or Christians have any argument about
we believe in our Koran makes it clear for us and confirms to us that Jesus Christ in fact, he was born without the intervention of sperm.
that his mother Mary, that bless it woman, she became pregnant by the word of God.
No man touched her.
or homicides are committed every 19 minutes
and two rates are committed every seven minutes
And there are three robberies
every 59 seconds.
There are 257,000 children that are legally or illegally aborted. That is 257,000 children are killed in the womb
21 million children
are born every year out of wedlock, who do not know their mothers and fathers?
Or who do not know whom they're fathered by
2.8 million suicides every year of human beings who find no reason to live with these kinds of social problems inside of their own boundaries inside of their own governments and their own institutions. How can they
bring peace to the world?
It doesn't make sense.
Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds you and me that whatever good happens, it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if something else happens, this is from our own hands.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he has ordered you and I to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.
And when we cease to do that, we don't enjoy the right. We don't enjoy, enjoy and we don't enjoy on the right we don't forbid the wrong then Allah subhanho wa Taala promise that he will visit us a calamity from himself.
when the calamity happens, all you are punished and the receiver comes upon you and you call upon Allah He will not answer.
What do the Muslims of today expect?
The character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim,
not what he or she says not only what he or she wears,
not where they come from, or who their mother or father is or grandfather, not the country they live in, or for that matter if they live next to the Kava is not important at all.
It is the character because the character is the actual fruit.
And we can remember, on the occasion, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam invited his companions to make a sacrifice in the way of Allah subhana wa Tada.
he brought half of his wealth.
And he considered this to have been
a major sacrifice.
And he was very proud of that.
But when abubaker de la and came abubaker
he brought all of his wealth.
And when the prophets on the long line is asked aboubaker
what he had left for his family, what was the response of abubaker odilon. He said, a love of
a lion is messengers, a lot of stuff. And it was by the suggestion of the order of the prophets have lost them that Abu Bakr took back some of his wealth for his family.
And this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
that there was no one from among the Muslims,
who displayed his loyalty to a lot of his messengers, civilize them similar to that of Abu Bakar.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said, Yes, definitely. Who who is better, who is more excellent
than the one that calls towards the loss of power dialer, not just calling, not just shouting, not just arguing.
Well, I'm sorry. But they are acting upon what they are calling. They are setting a precedent for what they are calling to.
They have established a behavior, a paradigm and example to what they are calling to
And they openly say, announce a Muslim.
We're oceans and rivers meet, does the ocean take over the river? It doesn't, although the ocean might be five times six times, eight times 10 times larger than a river.
And, you know, if you took two bodies of water,
and you put a funnel in between them,
what would happen, the larger body would absorb the smaller body, wouldn't they?
But in the case of the ocean in the river, it doesn't happen because a law city put a buzzer up. So they do not overcome each other. And one of our
Jacques Cousteau who passed away now he was a marine biologist.
He was able to film
under the ocean, where the rivers meet the ocean. And the river meets the ocean and the ocean meets the river and they go back.
They meet and they go back. So therefore, the rivers return back to itself and the ocean returns back to itself. They do not overcome each other. How does the Prophet know that?
Islam has five fundamental pillars, the first of which is to bear witness that there's none of you worship except Almighty God, consistent with
the first commandment given to Moses, consistent with
the first commandment that Jesus Christ also said, is the greatest of the commandments. Here, Israel, the Lord thy God is one. Absolutely one, not the number one.
Not the number one that could be divided into 123.
Not the number one that could be multiplied.
When absolutely one, having no one Besides, no other God besides he, Israel, the Lord, that God is one. And that's your love the Lord thy God with all the heart and all the mind and all that soul, and thou shalt not worship anyone except the Lord thy God, no bow down to any graven images in the heavens of the earth or the sea below.
Said Moses, and said confirm Jesus Christ, and such says the Quran.
This is what we bear witness. And this is the first pillar of Islam and the most important.
If war erupts in Iraq, more than 3000 missiles will be rained upon Iraq in the course of 66 hours, and more than a half a million people will be killed.
Can you tell me
how the lives of a half a million people
are equal to a leader Saddam Hussein if America was able to go into South America and pull out what was the guy's name general
America was selling drugs with Noriega, but then Noriega flipped on them.
So they went in and took this man from his country, brought them out and put them in jail for life in their country. So why don't just go into Iraq and pull out saddam? No, they need to go into Iraq.
Why? Because you will find that in a matter of six months after the war, the prices in the oil will go down. And as we speak, right now, there are 27 mega companies, mega companies who are bidding for contracts for the reconstruction of Iraq, what does have to do with Saddam Hussein, and democracy.
If a man
had to get pregnant and have a baby, he would die.
And then on top of that, if he had to look forward to taking care of that child for the next
10 1520 years, and sometime the mother, she's taking care of a grown child,
men who still live with their mothers,
you couldn't do it.
And still, she's taking care of herself. And she's taking care of her husband.
Mere loss upon the reward those sisters
and their law cover their faults.
May law cause the husbands and brothers and sons to appreciate them, because they are the godly trees that bear the goodly fruit, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he made brotherhood, very sacred. Very important is the whole basis of the Muslim society brotherhood and when there is no brotherhood, believe it there is no substance among the Muslims.
The first principle and characteristics of dow is that the die has to have knowledge.
Not just ambition,
not just emotional drive, and not just a reaction to some insult that somebody has said, and not just a feeling to want to give down because you know, it's an obligation. All those things are good, and it's all necessary. But without knowledge, what are you gonna do, but always show your composure and your willingness to talk to anybody? Because why?
You put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala from the very beginning, the Messenger of Allah is awesome. He didn't have all the answers, but he put his trust upon law a law says to him for tilaka lu Allah in kuntum
