Ramallah Sula Salatu was Salam O Allah and he was having
a Somali Moroccan survival for Khartoum.
Brothers and sisters, there's a little mistake that took place here.
I don't know who prepared this idea about me talking about sins and disobedience.
Maybe some of your parents figure that some of you guys is kind of rebellious. And we they want me to talk to you about your sins and your disobedience. But I will feel that for me to talk about, because I commit sins myself, and I'm disobedient. So what I look like talking to other people about that.
So I don't want to be no hypocrite and be talking to people about their sins and disobedience. Maybe there's some checks with white beards. And you know, they pious people. And you know, maybe they could talk to the people about that the college scene cannot talk to people about that. I mean, I can recite some as of Quran. But that's really all I can do. But what I like to talk about is really, so I told the brothers, you got the wrong title there. You didn't give that title to me. That's not what I talked about.
I don't have no lectures talking about that. Not that that's not a good subject. But that's not a good subject for me.
So I think that's why there's a lot of young people that didn't come here, because they don't want to be he talks about sins and disobedience.
So I'm switching. I'm flipping the script.
That's what y'all call it, right?
flipping the script, turn it over.
And I just want to have an open floor discussion.
open floor discussion means any question that you want to talk about? That's what we talk about. So you will have anybody who wants to raise their hand, and you got a question that's bothering you or issue that you want to discuss? Then we just set some ground rules, you have to ask your question, and 30 seconds.
A minute. Because I'm not asking you for a dissertation, I'm just asking you to ask a question that you think is important.
I will do my best to try to answer that. But it's based on the challenges. You know, we yesterday, how many people here in electric talk yesterday.
And your parents, it was really, really hard about
because I kept you too long. But I hope that they will understand that I didn't really understand, I didn't know that
all the sessions were finished. So please apologize to them for me that I didn't know all the sessions were finished. But at the end, maybe they also didn't know that handler to non Muslims are sitting here. And we didn't even give no doubt to them. They just took Shahada.
So they shouldn't have no attitude about that, right.
the ground rules is that
you can ask anything
that you want to ask. But it has to be based upon something that you consider to be a challenge in your life. Something maybe you can't talk to the Imam in the masjid about
something that you've been trying to ask your mom and dad about your uncle's about, or something that you know, the scholars don't seem to be talking about? Something that your friends talk about, you talk about something you see on the radio or the TV or the movies, or just something that's bothering you, that you are willing to stand up and say shake. Listen, can you tell me so and so can you inform us so and so then I'll do my best. So this is not like fatwas. I'm not giving nobody no fatwas. There's some other shakes here that can give fatwas. I don't do that. I can just say to you the Islamic position on that issue. What I understand is this, and I'm talking to you like I'm
talking to my children, like I'm talking to my grandchildren, or like I'm talking to a friend.
that's what I'd like to do today, if you guys want to do that.
Because I don't have no lecture. I don't really, to be honest with you. I don't like to lecture to young people.
I like I like young people to come inside, put them overheads outside them, close the doors, all of them except me. Put all over his outside, close the doors, and then after that, then we can talk
because I know as long as your parents is all around, y'all gonna be looking around see who listening and because you don't want to talk. But you can talk with me
because I have talked about everything with my grandchildren. And when I say everything I mean with a capital E.
So there's nothing you can say that's no surprise me.
Catch me off guard. Two, we have talked about everything from A to Z.
Because I tell them, don't look at me like granddaddy, Don't look at me like your father, look at me like your homeboy your friend, you know, the one that you'd be voting with? Let's talk like that. And they say,
rarely, I say, really? So if I say something you like to tell my mother, you know, I won't. It's like, it's like the lawyer client relationship. You know what that means?
Do you know what that means? If you got a lawyer, your lawyer can never discuss your whatever. It's like the doctor patient relationship. You know what that means? Right? Your doctor can never disclose your medical records with somebody else. So when you go to someone who says that they're willing to discuss issues with you, is that kind of an issue. Now, unfortunately, they are taping this year. So normally, when I talk to young people like this here, we don't be taping.
But just brother's got the cameras rolling, then y'all should be aware that if you want to say something that don't want to get back to your mom and dad, don't say it here.
But for the record,
let's talk about the challenges that young Muslims face you are facing in your lives. So let's spend that time so it's an open floor.
Take like a question from the sisters. And I'll take a question from the brothers and you know, y'all sister be on the phone. So don't be telling me y'all got to be writing stuff down and all that.
Just not that kind of session. Sisters don't have to write nothing. Unless you really, you know, you really like a pious sister, you don't be talking in the public and you want to write it down, write it down to send it up here to now answer it. So I'll take a question from the sisters and a question from the brothers. And we'll just handle it like that.
From the sisters first.
Okay, you don't have to speak up a little bit, sister for me, please. I think that way we can close the door out there. Only maybe leave somebody there who can escort the people inside? Yes. Go ahead. system. Sorry.
Okay, what I heard you say something about movies,
music, and fashions. And what is this?
Oh, how do you control yourself? Alright.
Sister, there's really no one answer about that. You know,
how do fat people
open up another way? How do overweight people? How do they control themselves? Every time they around some food?
For real? Because, you know, the whole issue is, Is it right? The whole issue is the Nef the NASA is like a wild horse.
How do you control the white horse, you got to put a saddle on it right? You got to put vitals on it so you can control it.
Enough is like that it always want to be breaking out. It always want to be looking for something new to do this, do that. But the knobs always brings you into a problem for and I just used the overweight situation as an analogy. So if you keep on overweight and keep eating and eating, he was gonna wind up. You don't want to buy yourself
not even liking yourself, right? Um, just just look at the analogy. So if you start once you start listening to music, and you got to be honest, almost everybody. If you find a little baby, a baby two years old, and you start playing some music, I don't care what kind of music it is. What's the baby start doing?
They start moving because it's natural to move what the beat so it's innocent. It's inside of us the hardest beaten, the baby was inside the mother's womb. If she was playing music, the baby already got the vibe.
Then the heart is beating so it's already there. So music is natural for a human being but shaytaan takes advantage of that. That's why the prophet SAW seven want us to don't do that. So we have to understand that this music stuff, the process often said is haraam. That's the best first thing we got to understand ain't like no halau music
To those machines, you know, cuz what what been introduced into the Muslim world recently is something people call like some like halau type music. So let's first start out with you know, some humming, you know, Allahu Akbar, type ba ba bla bla Mohammed Dora su LA.
You know, they start and do some brothers get on a stage that you know, they got some name, they spin around like the fold tops, or whatever it is, and then some sisters being over there next to you know, the coupies is up and down, the citizens swaying. And then what Then what is it? What is it now, the machines on took off, they don't add it now, you know, they got saxophones, they got strings, they got drums, you know. So it's almost just like the rap that you sing on MTV.
It was haraam from the beginning.
So I suggest to you be careful of the music, period. Now no, all you brothers and sisters, almost all of you
are listening to music.
Now you might not want to be honest, and I'm not asking you to confess, but almost all of you because we can't help it. We get into the elevator music.
You know, we turn on television and listen to the news, music. Everything we do the music is there.
Music you know you you acid rain tones
with music. So it's just everywhere. Because Satan had Jin be flying everywhere suggesting to everybody and then Muslims is inside their mind is like innocent, but it's not innocent. So the first thing you need to do is be on God. What does the law say in the Quran?
Yeah, you know
that what the law says?
The law means beyond God. Watch yourself. Be careful. Be mindful. So it means First of all, tell yourself like what was the thing when somebody offered us some drugs, which is both for things Jose.
Hello. That's what it is. Firstly, that don't say, No. I don't do that. So I don't do that doesn't mean I don't like that.
Somebody say Don't you like music? You can say? Yeah, you know? I do but it ain't no good. For me. It's just like I'm giving you an analogy. Again, a person say to a person. Don't do like ice cream.
Don't do like donuts.
You know, don't do like mashed potatoes.
Don't you like a lot of gravy?
So if you overweight, you gotta say I do. But no, thank you.
Now, so I'm using the music, because then that covered the movies, the movies is a double whammy.
Because the music is something you listen to. But then the movies is what
Now, the movies are presenting provocative images,
people moving in different kind of ways and suggestive ways. And what's going on in the movies, violence. People is killing people as
well as people falling Katyn right in front of you. People are stealing people in line. People are swearing against God, people are robbing banks. People have disrespected a parents, all kinds of things happen in the movies. And we just watch it and digest it. I'll give you a statistic that you need to know about.
The average American
watches on an average of four hours of television a day
the average American
in the course of four hours of television a day, they witness over 1500 acts of violence
so if you witness those acts of violence on a regular basis, and you don't even blink, it means that your mind and your psychology has accepted it and tolerated it and you build up an immunity against it is the right so after you build up an immunity against it, when you see for white hairs in the society, when you see it in your neighborhood, you see people robbing people, I'll give you a good idea that you guys can relate to there's a cartoon called South Park y'all know about
so in that in that cartoon, and now watch these things evaluated not because I like them I because as a sociologist, I have to be able to understand so I got to watch it and check it out. So on one of these are cartoons. The guy is talking
Old people. So he said, I hate old people.
The other guy said, why he opened, and they all were telling me what to do and blah, blah, blah. So what you so what should we do about old people? I just wish some of them would just fall down the steps.
See, so. So in the in the cartoon, the boys, they see an old lady fall down the steps. You know, she following down the steps, old lady, and they all laugh
because of the
lady was somebody's grandmother.
So when you watch a cartoon, because they laugh, and you see the old lady won't fall down the steps. You laugh, but that's your grandmother,
as your grandmother,
grandmother falling down the steps as your grandmother, but you don't see it like that sort of cartoons are conditioning the children to disrespect their parents and to become insensitive to the injuries and the pain and the suffering of a mother and a grandmother. Follow what I'm saying. So if you watch this enough, after a while, and they also say one of the guy's name, I forget his name, but he's, he called us up for under cheaper.
He said, so what do you do for life? He said, I'm an underachiever. So what does that mean? He's a failure. And he's committed to a failure. So everybody knows that's what he is. So he's one of the characters and he's popular. So that and he's dressed and when his hat cocked to the side, and he got the baggy pants on, and he said, You know afterworld and all that kind of stuff. So he's like that. So so when you see the boys in the street looking like that, what are they?
What are they? They're underachievers. But it's been glorified. It's been put inside the mind. They have been conditioned to be underachievers psychosomatically, in the back of their mind, they have accepted to become a failure.
See, so film is dangerous.
We Muslims are watching. We are participating, but we are not controlling media, we should be controlling media, we should have our own media that that filter media with the for Why? We should answer it with a moral media. But do we have it? No, because we don't want to pay for it.
I give you another instance. And I'm answering this question here.
When you go to blockbuster,
and you know you're gonna be going to blockbuster.
blockbuster, you don't go your parents go
pick up the movies. And you know you pick up like 15 movies when you go cuz you don't want to come back and forth all the time. So you took you know about $15 movies of like five movies you watch all week. So you didn't spend $15 a week at blockbuster. How much is that? A month?
Come on y'all, but it's all down. 1516 somebody here so 40
Okay, 14 1516 $16 a week just to go to blockbuster.
What if I tell you to give $50 a month
to Abu Bakr, Siddiq mustard for your children, for your women and for your own life in your own community. You said Why?
Because you don't believe that Abu Bakr Siddiq is giving you nothing for that $50
but you believe that Moses giving you something
now, take it another way. When you pick up the movies from blockbuster, what they look like, what kind of packaging it doesn't have
professional packaging. I'm asking you are the graphics clean, crisp, clear, very nice graphics. Is the sound Dolby sound. I mean, that's what is called Dolby sound. That's the most recent technology Dolby sound. Is that on it. So you get the graphics, you get the sound, you get the packaging, and when you go inside blockbusters like McDonald's, isn't it?
But when you go inside the Muslim bookstore
and you go get the DVDs of the different shakes that's talking about Islam all around Tafseer called an Akita doubt whatever. What do the videos look like?
Most of them been pirated is right or wrong. Meaning that the originals, the Muslim bookstores take the originals, but they don't want to pay for the originals. What the Muslim bookstores do. They copy them and what the copies look like.
They look like they stolen.
They put them in a back room. So what kind of packaging is there?
What kind of packaging
substandard is it? What happens to the sound what happens to the graphics
That's the whole pathology of the Muslim world that Buster is preparing us trash. But they package in it like treasure. The Muslims, we got the treasure, but we package in it Like what? Fresh.
So I'm trying to send a message to you brothers and sisters, that the issue of the movies understand you want to watch movies. But why don't you invest so that Muslims can create their own television? Muslims can create their own media. Then we have something called halau media that we can answer that haraam media
but we have to make an investment to do so. Now the last thing you talked about was fashion. Is my sister.
Know what kind of fashion is the sisters want to be getting into?
Because most of the fashion is that the sisters gonna be wearing they're gonna be wearing outside right or wrong.
So what is that so what are the fashions outside who they want them for? A wedding for your husband.
Or for your father?
For your brother or your uncle
solace, somebody will catch you as Saturday.
Come on, what is this fashion about? I mean you got this just a fashion show in the city going down a strip going at an app, they say it's like all systems you don't need but they be going down and out just like the other girl be switching and flipping around. You know, and all that and
with T mas and a buyers and for they got all the same little moves, moving a little hips and sliding around and over this way and check this out. And the sister said and this some is done by that Sister, sister Georgiana, sister, Adriana, are sister gorgeous, or saw. So look how she look and check that would you like to buy that sister? How much is that style that I say that? That is
the sisters is exposing themselves. The sisters is preparing themselves to put on something that they will catch the eye of somebody right or wrong.
So who they try to catch the eye or they try to catch one of young boys. They try to catch a husband. They try to catch somebody.
I say that if they buy that dress, with the intent to kick somebody, that dress is a dress of the fire.
I say that that's a dress for a prostitute. Because the prophet SAW Sam said that there will be come a time when the women will be fully dressed, but they will be naked.
But that means
they're fully dressed.
They're acting like women who are what? Make it so I say sisters when they come up with the fashion thing say thank you. But no thank you. You want to do a little fashion show? You don't need you know, do it like some sisters have a little thing but not with no music and the walk in and the spinning and all that it's just like you got some stuff up on the racks for the sisters nice Kumar's and nice abayas and nice shoes for the sisters and whatever the case might be. For the sisters who are married
a glorious secret or Victoria's Secret or whatever you want to call it because you know they married they want to jazz a self up for the husbands. Oh, that's
really it was just as you want to make a lineup for the sisters you know that they can wear aside you know, for the husbands because everything is allowed in the home. That's all right.
So but you don't put music to it. Don't be jazz it up and doing it like the Catholics do it. You just providing a service for the sisters that sisters need among themselves. Nothing wrong with that, but don't copy the Kaffirs. So I know that was a long answer, but I just want to make sure I cover the three different parts of us. Okay, brothers.
Where's the Muslim community?
Got a question
about your sisters when we have a son
When asking the question, we have to show the discipline of patience, so we can all concentrate with respect on the question. Go ahead.
deal with that question first.
If there's four of us in the car, and we got a driver, he's you know, he the designated driver, right? I don't mean, because you know, all the rest of us is drunk. He's a designated driver, just because he got the license. And we believe he knows the way or it might be his car. So we say you will.
And we all traveling together, right? So perhaps all Sam said, if there is three of if there's two of you, or three of you, or whatever, on a journey, you have to choose one as What?
What do you say?
This ain't no country. This is just a trip.
to be a leader, even on a trip, why don't need to be a leader on a trip?
Because we might fall into disagreement about where are we going? Should we go back to we go forward? Should we go right, should we go left? We started arguing.
Somebody's got to have the last word. Is that right or wrong? So there has to be a leader who says, I heard what everybody said everybody suggested. My decision is and we cannot was the leader. The Amir say let's move forward. Unless he does something Haram, we got to do what
we have to follow. So follow what I'm saying now, right now. So if we in this car, and we got a leader, a driver or a meal, whatever you want to call it, but see my you keep on falling asleep. I keep saying
I see a brother driver, homeboy, whatever you want to call him. Once you pull over and let somebody else drive because May I see your head that
I'm okay. But I see him he he's swerving now. Say, brother, shake, please. Pull the car over. And let's either take a rest makes a lot. Let's get something to drink something to eat whatever.
The other three people got to do.
We got to say,
Right now all three of us a pulled over now. Do you think he gonna say?
No, he ain't gonna say that because he understands that our life is in jeopardy. Is that right? Are we gonna allow him to put our life in jeopardy this because he the Aamir Khan. I'm asking this.
So now I'm answering your question that I disagree. I say yes to leaders do hold responsibility. But we hold accountability. And if we don't put the leaders in check,
and we don't support the leaders, if we all suggest to the leaders, if we don't put the leaders in check, then that means we have allowed them to do whatever they do, then we don't blame them, because they crashed a car with us in it.
So let's be fair. My suggestion when I talk about the issue of community, I'm not talking about it just as a problem, I do have what I consider to be a method
a methodology that will reach a conclusion that is Islamic, because Islam already has a solution for all the problems. So the problem that we have the lack of jamaah that we need to initiate the process to establish the Jamaat?
What if you think you already got the jump? Are you going to initiate the process?
So I always ask the question like that, where is the jump? First I define it, then I asked ways to jump.
That'll make me no difference. If all the moms and shakes and all of us in this room here together. I'm gonna ask the same question. Where's the gym?
When they can answer that means there is no gym.
Now somebody is afraid. Somebody don't want to put themselves on the spot. Somebody wants to take the responsibility. Somebody doesn't want to admit all of us is in denial. If you're all in denial, then the disease or the malfunction, or the whatever the situation is you have if you're in denial, everybody knows that once you're in denial, you can't change the situation. Is that correct?
I'm asking the question.
If you're in denial, you can't change the situation. So I say all of us needs to study the issue of
the young and the old Allium, avatar. That was how old
When he became a Muslim,
nine years old, when he
was nine years old, the first Muslim to follow the Prophet allows him but he was a boy. So he was nine years old. And he was intelligent enough at that age that we heard what the prophet SAW said his proposition he accepted, is that right? How old was Osama bin Zayed when he was appointed as a general over the army? Who knows that question? How old was he? Some people said 16.
So between nine and 17, is how many years?
So I say that even the young people who are between the ages of nine and 17, you have responsibility to ask the question, what is the Gema?
You have to study it. Because on the Day of Judgment, those of you who are 12 and 13, and 14 years old, you young men, young semi who already start getting older to your body, and God has gone up on your body and stuff like that, and sisters who have their menstruation, you become responsible for your salon, and you become responsible for fasting, and you become responsible for many things. So I say the answer is that we have to study the issue. And then we have to go to our respective leaders and ask them shake. What is your perspective on the issue of Jama? And where you stand at and when do you sit with the other leaders in order to produce that?
And don't be afraid to ask that question. That's a halau question. And nobody's gonna put you in jail. Can we not in Egypt?
Nobody's gonna put you in jail. Could we not in Arabia? We're not in. We're not in Syria, we're not injured, we're not in. We're not in those places where you can ask those questions. We are in America. And we can ask those questions.
And we must ask those questions. Okay. A sister, she asked a question, my brother hope that you know, thanks for your lectures. I agree with you when you said yesterday that we should invite non Muslims to this kind of a meeting. But my question is, how do we invite them, you invite them the same way they invite you?
Muslim vegan ain't got no shame. When they want to invite you to do something, they don't care if you wear a hijab. jilbab they don't care if you were a poofy, they don't care what you wear. This looks now you get to take your prop on this smoke.
puff on this joint. Yes. And make your coffee lift up.
Yo, Sis, get you a snort of this. Yo says check out this new Beyonce join.
Yo, Sis, check this. So you invite new. You listen to the potty cut school, we don't cross over here. Yo, they're gonna be all kind of boys up. And now. You don't want me talking. I'm kaphas y'all go to school with him. Every single day on campus be inviting you to do something that's wrong, right or wrong, or you be hearing it right or wrong. So if they ain't got no shame, to ask you to do something. That's how ROM why we have so much shame to ask them about subnets Hello.
I say you got to be home and you got to practice talking. See, when somebody asks you something as a mom, you got to ask them. Why? Why are you asking me to do that?
Good. Is that? Is that gonna help me in school? Is that gonna help me with my dignity? They're gonna help me with my career. Is that gonna help me with my family? Is that gonna help my reputation? Or do for me? Make them answer the question. Did I say oh, you square. So yeah, and you round.
And when you round that mean, you you wrote an easier write down the hill.
If it's a road going to hell, I'd rather be square.
Because the square a moving you know, I'm saying you got to really push the square to move over. But if you round you go right to hell easy. You round and you've downhill Tom, you round and you down.
So you got to prepare yourself to answer and you got to prepare yourself to ask. You invite them towards what is good. Ask them listen.
We hold in a study circle. When they tell you say Are we going to a party so I ain't got no time for no party. We hold in the study circle because everybody in the study circle our aim and objective is to get straight A's across the board.
They say Oh, please. So yeah. All right.
Keep this in mind. All of us in the study circle. Our ambition is to be doctors, lawyers, nurses, architects.
computer engineers, so on and so on. And y'all go ahead, I'll smoke some weed, y'all go and drink, you're going to the parties, because you won't be the ones as a lawyer, you're going to be my client.
See, when you get when you need something, I'll be there. When you get to the hospital, I'm gonna be there. When you need to build something, I'm gonna be there when you come down to the welfare office, cuz you ain't got no job. I'm gonna be there. So no, I got no time for nobody cuz I'm gonna be there when you get to the other place.
So you gotta have an answer sisters. Now, in terms of inviting non Muslims to session, don't say to them, you are inviting them to a Muslim gathering? because somebody's going to talk to them about Islam, that maybe they want to be a Muslim bomb.
That's the wrong way. A nobody coming to nothing like that. They say,
Oh, thank you. But no, thank you.
Listen, what do you think about life? Is there some questions about life that you can't answer?
Questions about life? That's critical to you? For instance, do you like money? They say what I say? Yes. Okay.
Would you like to be successful in life? Would they say? Yes? Would you like to have good health would say, Yes. Would you like to have long life? Would you like to have friends? Would you like to have influence? Would you like to have a good relationship with your parents and the society? Would you like to become a leader in the society? Would the answer come to that lecture? I said, what kind of lectures that just come? Not a fact. Look, if you come, I'm promising you I'm gonna give you $5
so your next question, you said, Where am I gonna fall off given?
When they get there, the Muslims will give them $5 we'll give them a five find out what they call them. When you go someplace and you buy something to get your certificate, you'll get to find out but as they call it, like a rebate.
So when they come, we're gonna give them a $5 rebate.
So what the rebate you brought, there's, there's some books and stuff out there, all on the thing out there some other little gifts and stuff, give it to them, and they're gonna get that free, free free. So you didn't lie to them at all, but it's just not fun. I'll cash them I say all you check me. So okay, good, then we rotate Who said that? We're gonna raise that money and give them $5 Why not? If we bring 100 non Muslims here,
and all of them demand $5
we can give them the $5 Why? Because I guarantee you that if you invite 100 non Muslims here, and you got the right person talking to them. 10 of those people is gonna become a Muslim inshallah.
Is it worth it?
For us to have 10 non Muslim to take the Shahada, for us to give everybody five hours for them to come? Is it worth it? will be we would be the women without parents be willing to give us $5 to give to a non Muslim for them to come. They should go to my father mother for files go to great adventure, or some other stupid place just to have some fun. They give me 15 give me out the house because they want to do something.
So we got to find ways brothers and sisters, to get those non Muslims here, but you can't think like a Somali and you can't think like an atom. And you can't think like an Asian and you can't think like that. Because if you think like that, you'll never be able to get them to the place. You got to think like an American.
You got to think like a Muslim in America. Because Ain't nobody ain't no non Muslims coming to no Somali gatherings unless you visit inviting them to eat some some boosah
Street down the street and kick it with them homeboy down in Tulsa, Yo, I want you to come to a low dollar session. Isn't that was that this brother from Valentine talked about Islam is a man of bring me to take man I got no time for that.
He said Yo, check this out. Man. Come over here for 30 minutes. And people give it up five out of
30 minutes. You know you go to sleep. Do you want to marry fara? Yo, check.
So you gotta you gotta figure out how you want to do it. It's a technique. Don't wait for your mothers and fathers do it. They don't know how
over the world.
Asia, Africa, India, and all over Europe with Muslims. They don't know how
Every time we do something with our 5000, Muslim 500, Muslims or
non Muslims, they nobody show up at the Muslims. It's just like we prepare a banquet for non Muslims and all the Muslims come eat the food
system, brothers, you young people have to find ways to influence your associates, your schoolmates, the people in your neighborhood, because they will find ways that they be figuring out all kinds of new ways to influence you.
So it's a battle of the minds. It's a psychological war. It's a spiritual war. When you go to what goes go to school, be equipped to deal with that psycho psychological situation, every single day for people is, is trying to win your spirit, they're trying to win your mind, they're trying to win your heart changed you, from your family, from your religion, from your beliefs, and from your principles. Every single day. When you watch on TV, the TV is trying to go inside your heart and put ideas inside your mind inside your heart and trying to make some of y'all except lesbianism and homosexuality, like the natural people. Check that out.
When you say, Oh, I know it's wrong. But you know, they're human beings, they should make their own choice. And that what they say,
you know, is a gene inside them.
They got a gene that's been around and there's like a homo gene,
they got a lesbo gene in them. And I just woke up one day, this I won't be a homo.
Now, it's a behavior that they have accepted. It's a behavior that was cultivated, they have been conditioned to become that, and they want you to accept that because even if you don't become a lesbian, even if you don't become a homosexual, you will accept it. Once you accept it. You are on the other side, you become an enemy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because you have accepted someone lost it told us to reject. Do you follow me?
So it's very important brothers and sisters, these questions that we talked about, we're having fun here. We answer some serious stuff here. And I really wish we had more time. One of the problems I told his brothers is that Look, man, check this out, man. Y'all ain't giving up enough time for these young folks. Man, this whole thing about these young folks, all these all hands come up in here may give them two sessions that can go
up, hey, look, it's alright, have a conference for check tafsir in all the code and everything and then have another whole half a day for three days, half a day, just with the young people. That's what I think should happen. Because we don't put enough time into it. We don't give enough time for things to develop. Okay, can I get that question done?
statement? Okay, well, I'll read the statement. Okay. So we are having
a dyad sisters booth and we encourage all sisters to come and register for our program. inshallah, please sit as for free advertisement.
Free come and get free books, CD ROMs and pamphlets about Okay, it's free. Okay, it's good.
Because I was gonna ask for permission
creating the network I must say check the
box go out there and see the sisters they gotta die yet. boof. Sisters. May Allah bless the sisters. The brothers ain't got no date yet. But
you know, one Kudo for the sisters one tap beer for the sisters. Okay, can I take another question from the sisters? Yes. Yes, in the back?
No, no. I took a question from assessors. That's a question from the brothers. But we got to take another one man, you don't
want to take two wives? So let's take two questions.
Well, there's two. There's two issues and I'm gonna deal with each one. First, I say that if young sisters want to aspire to go to university or college, why not? They need to be educated.
They need to be educated, but they need to be protected.
So I say that a young sister living in America and the world that we live in today, it is dangerous for her to go to the university period. That's one dangerous suddenly she got to have more protection around her.
She got to make more preparation because she got to be in a situation where she's sitting in the class every single day. boy girl boy girl, boy girl, you know how to set them up.
Wrong. Secondly, she can be exposed to situation going through hallways, she's gonna be in a situation just sitting in lunch rooms. She was sitting in situations where, and you know how the university is University. Wow, America sororities and they got fraternities and they drinking and drugging and they got homosexuals and all kinds of crazy stuff going on around. And everybody is listening to all that stuff all day long by doing about boo all day. So just just to see that, I'm just kicking it to you real good. I got daughters and that, you know, they asked me the question. So I say that's the provocative environment. And I say that a father or mother that just send the
children out to their daughter to that environment. They are the minds.
However, if there's a Muslim Student Organization on the campus, and a place for the sisters to pray, and a place and they and they kind of like, look out for the sisters advise the sisters or sisters when you want to eat lunch, we got a little special section over here, your sisters, when y'all went loose, do you know study a little computer but we got a little section over here. We got only place to pray over here. And we got our little our student activity over here. So the sister is on the campus, but she got the eyes and ears and the protection and the guidance of other Muslims on the campus. That might be helpful. But let's go to the next part of your question. Next one.
No. Because once you move out the house and go on the dorm dorms.
Wait a minute, come on, think about this. Now. If you in a coed dorm, that'd be brothers and sisters cross whatever it is. And they all up and down all night in and out. Brother take a shower, take a shower. I mean, it's just come out with a lot. Whatever. Excuse me. You know, come on, you can't do that. You can't be walking into a dorm. What's your little heat jab on and you know, like, Mashallah you Muslim? Man can about a baby girl, what's going on with you?
I know you're Muslim, but boy, you be looking good.
So what you gonna say with that they're gonna do this every day. Then
you got to do that.
Every single day, then the guy who's in the dorm with you? Some of them is gay, lesbian.
You don't know what's going on?
What's going on? Go ahead and Biggie, hug kiss butt. So I say no. Don't send your daughters to no dorm living off? Absolutely not. Apparently does that they really? I say Really? To be honest. They are traders.
They are out of their minds. They got to be blind or stupid or both?
you need to take the parents to the university.
Let them see what's going on in there. No, absolutely not. And the sister herself will even prepare ourselves to do that. What's she trying to get away from? Oh, she wants to be free. She wants to be independent. She won't do her own thing. She will move away from the past. Could they be always on her case? So now she want to get away when she get away? What's happening now she ain't got no rules.
So firstly, got no rules. have nobody around them except what? foods?
So I say absolutely not. Don't sisters even prepare to do that. And don't know parents allow them to do that. Now let me tell you something that's better for you. I'm not saying you. Let me say what's better for the sisters. Today you got what's called?
They got they call it the university without walls. You heard that? Okay, it's called long distance learning. You've heard that. So it means that you can apply for most universities while staying at home. You pay the you pay the tuition, you pay for the books, you register, you take all the courses, you get all the books and your classroom is at home. Tell me what's better for you to do that. Or to go to the university campus in order to matriculate which one's better.
Because if you really want to study and you really want to get that degree, you will do it faster at home if you're disciplined as a Muslim man, then you will have views on the campus. So I say that sisters who want to go to university go ahead compete become doctors and lawyers and and architects and engineers and everything you want to do, but do not subject yourself to that university environment unless you have to. And if you have to choose a university where there is a Muslim Student Organization there who can protect you who can mentor you who can help you reasonably that's my answer to you says now hope is not too too harsh inshallah. Yes, No brother
does sound like
is caught after one. So look, they're gonna get ready to ring that bell on me. So, probably gonna take one or two questions, and then we got to go. And I'm gonna ask the brothers, you know, maybe we could do another session some kind of way because I see this is where we need to talk. So but this little young brother isn't harmed or what?
isn't around to be an NBA player
he won't get some money.
He's a basketball he, he's a MBA.
No, it's not.
For a young man to have the aspirations to become a professional athlete. However, it is macroom meaning that it is disliked. Why because on the way to becoming an athlete, he has to expose himself to what all athletes are doing. And that is they got to be mingling with the girls and you're the cheerleaders took the booties, if
you haven't been to them games.
environment, you know, you're in an environment where they are shaking and jumping and splitting and go going around and you know, the music and the whole ain't just about putting the bone inside the basket, then the boys, they'd be taking showers together naked.
If you know, you're going to back room after the game was everybody inside the locker room, they all got the clothes off, walking around, take a shower together, shouting at each other when we go on to the next party together. Now there are some Muslims who have went into the NBA and they're decent Muslims. That doesn't mean that is allowed to do that. It only means that Muslim was already determined to become an athlete, or became an athlete or whatever. But they became a good Muslim hamdulillah for that, but that's not an example for us to send our young boys to enter the professional football, basketball, whatever the case might be, or our young sisters to do that. I
say, no, it's my crew, because you got to expose yourself to those characters. You got to expose yourself to the music and for why his I mean, you know, the nakedness and the dancing and all that kind of stuff like that. And it distracts you away from the serious issues of akhira and it makes you think to yourself that having fun and throwing a ball you can get $100,000 a year or you can get a million dollars and only one and 100,000 people don't get that and it probably won't be you
will say you can't shoot no basketball now we don't see it tomorrow The next day, but you probably won't get to the NBA. I mean put that in your mind right now. Not that you can't but only 100,000 and if you try to be one of them on 1000 you probably gonna forget all the code and you've got right now
and we don't want you to do that. You follow me? You feel me? Alright, good. I take assistance right there.
Roger Marsh Ah, good question system. What should you do? If you got a problem? We're gonna provide you a question for everybody
to go look
check this out. Hold on now.
Gotta go question because most of us in this room by a guy may know fudges model
may find just one telco
how many people didn't buy one raise their hand
data set this question is what should you do? The best day
The best thing to do is prepare yourself the night before to make
make the Nia inside your heart The night before.
Say I want to make fudger prepare yourself you know put your you know put your thought about put to put the world over there and all that and you know if you don't listen to that alarm clock and a loud enough Did you want them things that just ring like a ring like and fall off the thing.
Just like skein you know, they got them long glasses like that. That's be so loud when it goes off. It just makes it a nightmare. You just wake up Wow, what's going on. You need one of them. You need maybe something to go off just be so loud. And then don't put the alarm clock next to you.
Right next to you when you do
so put the alarm clock across the room. So when it go up, you got to get up and you'd be a real fool to get up
and go back to bed.
So I say prepare yourself with good nia. Train yourself to make 5g 5g is for soldiers. foger is for soldiers
The easy thing to do now, when you make fudge on a regular basis you soldier in a lie you love that. But everybody can't beat that everybody can beat the sheets. The sheets, beat me so like, find the time sheets.
Just getting into next motion finally. Getting that not next week.
I'll say the process ultimately to have a full brother cut me off. I promise I'll stand when one of you goes to sleep. Listen to this. Howdy. Sam said. Hello.
Sam said when one of you goes to sleep shaytaan ties three knots behind your ear.
And while you're sleeping shaytaan he blows on those nuts and tell you that sleep. The night is long.
Somali Come on he translated.
Are you translating? Okay, y'all can be holding a conversation while I'm holding conversation. Otherwise, we got stopped listening, you guys.
So, Sam said, when one of you goes to sleep, say Tom ties three months behind the ear. And while you're sleeping, he blown those nuts until you say sleep. The night is long, you got lots of times to sleep. So the prophet SAW Sam said, when one of you wakes up and sits up and say supine a lot, then one night is removed.
When you go make
another knot comes loose. And when you play, another knot is loose, and shaytaan have no control of you for the rest of the day. And you got a good smell about your body and a good disposition the rest of the day. But for those of you who continue to sleep, say Tom T's in the ear, he urinates in your ear. Owl know what say Tom's urine smell like.
So the prophet SAW Sam said that Satan urinates in your ear. And when you wake up, and the sun is in your face, see you got a bad smell to your body. And you got a bad disposition. And shaytan is with you for the rest of the day. So that may be that's, you know that's heavy.
So now you think about it. Now, when you get up and you make budget when you get them on it. First thing to say is to panela get up on the side of your bed
and say so Pamela. So one thing she removed from you, and now you're sitting up, right?
So the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning, you get an alarm clock, sit right up,
get your head together. Then after that, about about 30 seconds, go right to the water Don't be fooling around. go right to the water wash up. Now you already have you halfway down the path.
To see how you feel. So Pamela,
then you go back to sleep, because you already did the job.
You already got control of your day. Now you got to come from Allah subhanaw taala. And if you build up that facha discipline, you build up that fighter discipline. Can you miss? Did you feel so disappointed?
The people that don't have no further discipline, but me oversleep every single day.
Then got nobody to come with them. So that's what I suggest for you get alarm clock if you need help build up the discipline, ask a law make do I read code and make preparation, the preparation fix your mind to make fudger that's just like if you knew you had to go to court, or you knew you had an appointment that next day, you had to get up at seven o'clock because it was some money involved or your job does involve is you're gonna miss it.
Because you can't prepare for this right? Same thing for the project. Okay, I think we gotta says I still don't want to come. Is it okay for sisters to wear skinny
shiny hijabs? No, I would recommend for the sisters.
It's better for sisters to wear darker colors than the lighter colors.
I didn't say you can't wear the lighter colors is better, the darker colors. Why? Because the lighter, brighter colors you wear and the more attention you draw to yourself. And you don't maybe intend to draw attention to yourself, but somebody but the intent of the hijab is to cover the intent of the hijab is to make you more subtle to make you a little bit less seen for you to basically be able to move in and out without being seen. But you know, it was said that she'd walk across the thing like a peacock. Yeah, but you know, they'd be like.
So I'm not saying what you wear says it's up to you to wear what you want to. But if you look to the rules of hijab, you will see that modesty is the issue, isn't it?
Not to be seen, but it is kind of like for you to be on
On the scene but not to be seen so always choose something to wear that doesn't draw a lot of attention to yourself but if you wear a hijab with a whole lot of sparkles on it
you know or you got you know data what that what those what those he jabs he got now with the with the emblems on they got ck was in a
Calvin Klein and Donna Qur'an and was another one with the cross on it was that one
no no it's not Chanel This is another one it's got a cross on it but the sister don't see the cross
Christian civil say
the cross on it
see how to say Tom be doing us know sisters try to wear your hijab nice soft subtle you know without no pizzazz and a lot of floor and with that camel hump on the back and all that stuff you know try to get away from that kind of things but a lot of the best know at least if you covered up you covered up but try to get better study the rules of hijab and try to get better as you go along inshallah analyze the best No, I brother and sisters, I got a sign here says the end.
So means I gotta stop yet can we gotta pray?
We take that one question. Okay, Yes, go ahead.
Okay, okay, young people. Listen, I feel you understand? Cuz I won't get mad again.
So, I'm telling you, I understand how you feeling and how frustrated you are. Because your parents don't seem to be facilitating nothing. You know, the parents they already mad they smooching you know, we got children to get the little bedroom and the old family, my children
That's not the right answer. It's not fair. It's not Islamic. So what do you do? I suggest, I suggested the young brothers and sisters, that if you wanted to buy a car, and your parents say you can't buy no car.
But you got a job. I suggest you start saving for that car, even though they did not give you permission to buy the car yet, right? So at one point, you gonna say Dad, look, I'm not asking you to buy me no car. I'm 17 years old, I already got a driver's license. I already saved up for the car. I'm just getting your permission for me to go ahead and buy me a car.
Okay, so I'm using that analogy to say that you young brothers and sisters need to put together a conference, organize it yourself.
Bring the eyes of God and bring the Hadith from the Prophet Salon of Assam set up a conference to discuss this issue about facilitating marriage for young people. And then ask people like myself, who don't mind coming and telling your parents what the truth of this matter is. Don't wait for your parents, or for the MSA or for
anybody else. Don't wait for them to hold that conference because you might be 30 years old before they do it.
And some of y'all may have already fell into the butter. You know what I'm talking about. We don't want to fly fall into butter
that me fell in. So some of y'all, if you don't do this is gonna fall off into southern and maybe your mother father ain't gonna know until you got to take the pill on maybe a mother father don't know, until something happened to somebody pop up and say, you know, you made him pregnant. And I'm not talking about suddenly Don't be happening in the Muslim community. It's just that we'd be covering it. young brothers and sisters are fornicating in the Muslim community. Young sisters is getting pregnant by kaphas and young brothers in the Muslim community is happening, but we don't talk about it. And the parents is ashamed. So they don't talk about it. But I talk about it because
I know what's happening. So I say this, this is a plague. This is the issue that we have to address. And I say that you young brothers and sisters that are 16 and 17. In college in high school, you are intelligent
You have put together a conference so we can discuss this matter. Because it's not difficult to address this matter, we can do a situation where we can have a three day conference. And even before we do the conference, we have had young brothers and sisters fill out applications of their qualifications for marriage and all of that, before we even go to conference. And when we do the conference, that last day of the conference, we can almost guarantee that 15 or 20 young brothers is going to be put together prospectively lead them towards marriage because we have already done that.
Now if you want to ask me how to do that, it's too much in this meeting because I don't have more time. But I am willing
my email, my email is special sky.
Not special guy.
But special sky like the sky
because especially specials guy, you know what specials, guys? That's the agenda. So special sky at gmail.
So special skies, one [email protected] So now send me an email. And let me answer you. Let me give you some guidance. Let me give you some suggestions on how we can do this. You don't have to do it by yourself. So if you really are serious about this matter of marriage, and you should be than this
