The capture of
100,000 people were marching through Central London to protest against both plans for war on Iraq and to demand
regime change in Baghdad. I'm beginning to think we need a regime change right here in Washington DC.
We don't have what is called a Sabbath. The word Sabbath actually comes from the word Sabbath. an Arabic word sentence means seventh. And so your most Sabbath in Arabic is called Saturday. So on the basis of that we know that the Sabbath
was originally Saturday, not Friday, not Sunday,
the Christian church 300, and some odd years after Jesus Christ, they adopted Sunday, because Sunday was the day that the pagans used to worship the sun. So since that was the day that the pagans or the Romans and the Greeks used to acknowledge a day of holiness, they took the name of Jesus Christ and the faith of Jesus Christ. And they applied it for that day, when they and so they call that day of worship Sunday. And then the Christian civilization just adapted that, as a matter of fact, all those days that were acknowledging Sunday, Monday is called moon day, Tuesday is another day, Wednesday, Wednesday, and Thursday is fours day, that's another god. And you know, so all of these
days that we're using are from the Gregorian Greek Roman calendar, which is evidence of their pagan practices, as a matter of fact, is a group of Christians who do not accept Sunday and they call themselves the Seventh Day Adventists. Okay, that's why the Seventh Day Adventists they are worshipping on Saturday. But now we as Muslims, when the Prophet Mohammed came with His revelation, we were given the order to worship on a day called Friday but it's in Arabic is that Friday is called Juma. Juma means a Day of Gathering. So what we will always do is at noon time, or approximately there have on Friday, the Muslim men especially, are ordered to stop their work, stop
the business, stop their occupations, and go and pray in congregation that that congregational prayer on Friday only takes probably maybe half an hour, 45 minutes at the most. And after that, we can eat, drink, work, earn money, so there's nothing no restrictions but we are ordered to stop on Juma and go pray now for the women. If they want to pray Juma they can it's optional. But the rationale behind women not having to do it is that if the women also were ordered to go make Juma what would happen to the children? What would happen to the home? So in Islam, we do worship
a Sabbath in the sense that that day becomes binding on us to stop, to worship God, to pray, to listen to some admonition, but afterwards God says fantasy to chill out, go to the earth and benefit from whatever you want to benefit. So after the Juma prayer is over, we can work we can eat, we can resume whatever it is that we have to. And so for us, there's no one particular day that we have to stop. And the other thing is that the Christians were doing this by this covenant, that on the basis that God created the heavens and earth in six periods or six days, and on the seventh day he rested. Well, we reject that concept because rest
is not an attribute of God. God's work doesn't not like our work. It's not like after God create the heavens and earth for he did some tremendous work, then God need to sit back and take a breather and drink some lemonade, or whatever the case might be. It's not like that. So we don't have this concept of God that he needed rest, but we do believe. And our Quran says that God created the heavens and earth in six periods. And after that he settled on the throne, but 70 on his throne, means that God is on his throne. We don't say he's on his throne, like I'm sitting in a chair. He's on his throne, according to His Majesty, we cannot imagine what that is. But after six periods, he
created the heavens and earth, He completed that work. And after that, he settled on the throne. We don't add anything to the meaning of that. But we don't have actually a Sabbath in Islam. That's actually a first question system.
We would not recommend that for you.
The reason being, you will be subject to mixing with men in an uncomfortable and very compromising situations and circumstances, you will be forced to do certain things, adapt certain postures and things that are not consistent with the female anatomy.
It's something the armed forces is for military defense. Now, if you're going into the armed forces, sort of guarantees that you're going to have a type of clerical situation, one that you will not be put in a compromising situation, which I doubt seriously.
But I think it still requires what they call generally basic training, doesn't it? And in that basic training, do they have a separate basic training for women?
No, I don't. I mean, usually, I mean, in Australia, I think it's almost like in Great Britain, and Great Britain is almost like America, that the woman who is a police force or into the military service, they got to get out there with the boots and everything and jump down the ditches and climb upon things with the men and everything. Well, we say that your female sanctity, and your sensitivity should not be compromised for that. So I would not recommend it for you. But living in the West and having to meet certain challenges. I'm not going to say to you, as a person that it's forbidden. Some scholars will say it's absolutely forbidden for you do that, because of the
situation it puts you in. Since I'm not a scholar, and I don't deliver those kinds of ultimatums, I say to you that you have to make that choice. But my recommendation for your system is that there are many other options for you to get your education to get experience and to reach your goal without compromising yourself that way. That's just my recommendation.
Yeah, I would say that that was
other options that you have, whichever they are, are better than that option. I would not recommend any Muslim sister or any lady period, to go into the police force where she has to, you know, dress like a man act like a man assume postures of men, be with men compromise her sanctity of privacy and things of that nature, just to get to the level of whatever she's trying to get to in that field. I wouldn't recommend that for you.
Causes hopefully, as always hold I'll give you I'll give you an example. And just bear with me for a couple of minutes, there was a man who killed 99 people. This is a story that we got from our Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon them. There was a man killed 99 people. And so he came to a scholar. And he said to that scholar, listen, I killed 99 people. And what I want to know from you is, is there any hope for me? That scholar told him? Absolutely not. So he killed him to say, Well, I must just kill you and make it 100 dead.
So what's the moral of that story? First of all, that scholar should have told that man, there is always hope.
He should have told him to stop right there. ask God for forgiveness. Of course, if you took the lives of people who are going to be responsible in some way, but he should ask God for forgiveness, not do that anymore, and have the hope of receiving forgiveness from Almighty God and to reform his life. So I would say the same thing applies to that 13 year old young man who did something that he's ashamed of, and our Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. And he goes further to tell us that if somebody one of us did something that we were ashamed of, if God covered it, he covered that by night, don't relate it in the day.
And if something we did in our lives long time ago, are we ashamed of it? We should not say it in the public at all. Because this is like in gratitude for whatever mercy and forgiveness that God was applying to you because already been benefits. So hold that be grateful. Don't recite it to relate it to anybody else. And then after that, reform your life reconstruct your life
seek the forgiveness of God and do good actions. There's another Hadith from our Prophet who said, he said, Allah Haytham, I can feel my wherever you are, follow up a bad deed with a good one, and that will wipe it out. And after that behave towards people.
Orion what I would say to you, however, is what you need to do is take it a step further. Perhaps you're following an inspiration which you connecting to Jesus Christ. But what will allow you to know whether or not you're following Jesus Christ or not, is to know whether or not
your connection to Jesus Christ is one of Scripture. And I mean by scripture, his actual words himself, how Jesus worshiped, how Jesus prayed, what Jesus Christ said, what he said about Almighty God, what he said about himself with no excesses. Let me finish. And if you are considering that Jesus Christ is God, or that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, then in fact, then this is
this refutes your faith in God altogether.
That's good. I mean, Oh, that's good. That's good. So if you fasting during the month of Ramadan, which this was not the practice, he saw, because there was no Ramadan at that time, but
no doubt, and but the prescription that you're fasting is Ramadan, is the prescription of the Prophet Mohammed.
And if you pray five times a day, he saw it, and he didn't pray five times a day, you pray three times a day.
Good, but specifically, saying that what came to him and what was ordered at that time was three times a day, okay, but if you play in five, that's the prescription of Mohammed's A lot of us so that which is good luck. And you also use the word Allah and use the word Isa. And you also use the word Eman, which means you send me that you're using the forks and knives and spoons and plates and cups. But you get the wrong gradients. And
so my suggestion for you, Ryan, is that you should read the code and see what the Quran says about Isa see the connection between Isa and Mohammed.
Because this is not a crapshoot.
It's not just a matter of taking a whole lot of words and a whole lot of little things. And he saw in the five prayers and hooking it all up together and Ramadan and feeling good about it. Now there's a system, there's a science to it. If you find a child that got hold of what's those little kits that children use, and they buy it for science, or they call it a
chemistry kit, see if he just finally start hooking up and mixing this stuff in my blog on his face. What the religion is a system is a formula. You can't play with it. You can't come up with your own buffet. You got to follow it to the tee. If you know exactly what Jesus Christ did. Exactly. You got to do exactly that. If you say you want to follow it's not if that's the case, then he saw alayhis salaam peace be upon him. He announced to his followers, that he only came to bring the good news and part of that good news to announce to them that a comforter a counselor would come
then that's another issue for you. So So Ryan, at this point. Now my advice for you is that what you should continue to do is you should move on from that 1315 year old experience, to the experience where you are right now and understand that there's a whole nother stage. There's no ceiling on this issue he saw didn't bring no ceiling, he brought a ticket. And the Holy Spirit that you're talking about that was Gabriel.
So we're not followers of Gabriel, we follow that next prophet that also jabril came to and brought that scripture, you should read the Quran, you should read the life of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them and not be afraid of it. Okay, and by doing so, you may find out that the natural progression of where you are right now is Islam. That's just my advice to you. Okay. Okay.
What's your name is sister,
Kimberly and your name sister, Crystal 100. Sister to both of you, essentially, except that there's none to be worse.
Do you accept also the human example of the Prophet Mohammed, that he's a prophet, a messenger of God? Do you accept that? Okay, then you make this very simple, because there's no real ritual. I don't want you to feel there's a ritual involved. It's an acknowledgement. And actually, the transition already took place because when a person feels it inside of themselves, the transition has already taken place but in the slam what we do we make a public gesture so that you get the
reinforcement the witnessing the acknowledgement of Muslims and you enter clearly into the Muslim community and you you gain the benefits and the support that you need okay. So say after me are also
Billahi min ash shaytaan new regime Bismillah
illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah
sallal laahu alayhi wa sallam,
ilaha illallah wa de
la sharika lahu wash
and Mohammedan Abu rasuluh Samba, love alayhi wa sallam will use us as Christians previously,
you wanna, then I want you to repeat also for me that I bear witness
that Jesus Christ
is the spirit and a word
set from Almighty God
who was pure, and chest. This is what our Prophet told us to acknowledge concerning marriage so that we don't come into Islam, thinking that marriage is the mother of God or the daughter of God, or that Jesus is God or Jesus, the Son of God, because this is one of the things that we want to separate ourselves from saying, Okay, now, after this year, you should understand that your entrance into Islam is a choice that you made on your own. Nobody forced you to do this. And you are responsible for fulfilling the duties of Islam, which is the five pillars of Islam, the six responsibilities of Islamic faith, which the sisters will help you with. The other thing is, take it
easy, step by step. Don't rush, don't be pushed, don't take more on yourself than you can handle. Understand that there are rules, there's do's and don'ts, there's laws, this was lawful, this was unlawful, but you can't do it all in a day. Okay? Do as much as you can, and be sincere, this domain thing, just be sincere.
And about your family and about your friends, about your colleagues about relatives or your friends or anybody. Keep this in mind. You're not obligated to them.
And you're not connected to them on the Day of Judgment, this just this decision you made is a decision that you made in front of God, for yourselves, gradually, you will get the strength, you will get the confidence, you get the clarity, and you will have the answers for your friends and for your relatives. And so you do hold it for yourself. And then these sisters and what you read and other things, will help you build up the strength and the confidence that you need. And step by step, you'll be in the same position that I'm in, that my wife is in as a new Muslim, that other sisters and brothers have come through. And we asked the Lord to bless you and to guide you to
And one of the beautiful things is that many times a Muslim person becomes a Muslim. And there's nobody to give them the support, at least here. You have a new Muslim Association here that offers support. And even if there's a group of brothers who just came up to me and said, if any new Muslim has debt that they cannot pay, let us know. And we'll help them to pay those debts. Isn't that beautiful?
Also, in a sentence that you may have had before you become a Muslim, that is things that you did that only God knows. And you know, those sins are forgiven for you today. But if there's debts that you owe somebody, God doesn't forgive debts that you owe somebody that's the sensible, isn't it? So you start off today with a clean slate and do your best. If there's any men in your lives, boyfriends, or whatever the case might be? You need to make that relationship correct. Make it correct, as soon as you can, because
the relationships in Islam shouldn't be relationships of responsibility. But again, this is something you'll correct. As soon as you do so you have any questions for me?
You can start praying immediately sister My suggestion for you. The sisters will tell you things that are sensitive and and particular for women. There are issues that are sensitive and particular for women. And so these sisters by the grace of Allah, they will explain those things to you and make it easy for you to begin your prayers and other things as a Muslim. So Kimberly, right and crystal May Allah bless both sisters.
By the house through a mortgage? Yes, it is.
That's right. In fact, sister, you know,
this issue of interests.
It is one of the major crimes in Islam.
It is the only crime that Almighty God has announced war against. So it means that the people that take interest and give interest and write the contracts for interest, they have themselves made a proclamation of war against God. Now, if you're innocent, you don't know this, you're not responsible, because you didn't know. But let me give you the the principle behind it. interest was created by was a conspiracy that was created by a group of people that allowed a small group of people to wind up owning the properties of people for nothing.
And after that, to not only own their properties, but to wind up owning and controlling the lives of even their children and their grandchildren for nothing. It's a conspiracy. And this conspiracy goes so far that through interests,
different countries, wind up in a situation where they call international debt, you've heard of foreign debt, so that countries are given money, and they can't pay that money back. And so what happens the people the or the banks who have already been paid that money, another group of people going in and take over the natural resources of that country roulette country, run that country for hundreds of years on the basis of what a debt that started out and built up interest. For instance, imagine a country borrowing 10 million, and there being a 22% compounded interest on that every year. So you don't have to be a genius to fight to understand that in a matter of 20 years, that 10
million winds up to be 230 million, and it's still not paid. What do they do, they go and they start a civil war, to make sure that people that are in place to begin paying that debt. And so imagine this not in one place, but all over the world, third world countries, undeveloped countries who enter these situations of debt, and they wind up remaining in poverty, and remaining under disease and other things through what banks conspiracies that introduce this issue of interest. Now to bring it home to you and I, what does it mean, I buy a house, I'm a simple person, hardworking person, me and my wife are both working very hard, we buy a house for 70,000. Or let's say here in Australia,
let's put it a different way. Let's say it's 150,000. So we bought a home 450,000. And we're very sincere. And there's a 19% interest attached to that, which means that over a period of 30 year, or 30, year mortgage, a 20 year mortgage, I wind up paying for that house, if I if I live, if I continue my job, if I'm employed over a period of 20 to 30 years for $150,000 house, I wind up paying at least 280,000 for that same house, the worst thing about it, I must pay off the interest before I pay the principal, see what happens. So it means that for the first 15 years, I'm paying off what
principal and interest. And suppose I lose my job, I lose my job, my wife loses her job, I get sick, she gets sick, what happens?
They come and take the house from me is right.
Even though I paid off 150,000 160,000 they take the house from me. So that 150 60,000 was for nothing, isn't it right? Then what do they do with the house?
They resell the house for more than what it was worth and give somebody else another mortgage for the house at maybe 220,000. And it just keeps on going. So this shows you that this crime is worse than slaughter. It's worse because it kills the spirit of people, their investments, their generations. And so the people who are engaged in that conspiracy, they have entered a war against God because it amounts to injustice and oppression. So for us Muslims, God made it clear to us, we don't write the contracts, we don't enter the contracts. And when we know about it, we try to find a way to get out of it. Now you're innocent. No. Now I would think that your husband being a Muslim,
he should have understood this. But maybe because he wasn't mindful or practicing. I mean, Lord knows best. So sometimes we had a situation we say, well, we ain't got no choice. We have to do that. No, we don't have to do that. I can live in a house that I'm renting and be just as comfortable although I don't own anything. But at least I'm not at war with God. So much
Justin sisters that you go to a Muslim financial person who can help you and your husband to back out of this situation with the least amount of complications, but make the commitment to do so. And then after that says, by what you can afford to
live in a house that you rent and be satisfied with that, because everybody to nowadays is cannot afford to just buy a piece of property. And nowadays, buying a piece of property or renting a piece of property doesn't necessarily give you any more security.
Thinking about your children is okay, what you do is, what you do this is that first think about your relationship with God before you think about the security of your children. Because even in thinking about the children, this is how we get trapped. Even with this insurance thing, somebody comes and knocks on your door and ask you do you have insurance? Or they don't? You say no. They said, Well, listen, all you got to do is pay $23 $20 a month. I mean, it's nothing. And in case you die, your children are gonna get $50,000. So because you're thinking about two children, what do you do? You wind up saying? Yes? Can you pay $23 a month? How much? Is that a year?
$100,600 a year, isn't it?
And what do you get for it? If you don't die? You'll get nothing for it. So I'm 10 years how much data 6000? Isn't it now think about 100,000 people that are paying the same premium?
for 10 years? times six, how much is that?
See, you see the kind of money 60 million that these insurance companies are making these big, big buildings, probably the biggest buildings in Sydney.
And they never lose. Why? Because they're stealing. They're robbing the the biggest pirates. So in Islam, Allah warned us about it. And so most Muslims avoid interest at all costs. Now there are certain parts of where we live in life that sometimes it's almost unavoidable, because they got so many traps, that one of the little traps going to get you like, you know, you get the credit card and you are intended to pay, but you've missed that payment. So they get you on that you know how you go to the hospital, and there's a low bill that you didn't pay to get you on that, or the student loan, and they get you on that. So they got so much stuff hooked up. But the direct things
avoided, that's the best thing I can tell you this, that's not interest. If if I if you give me 10,000 to invest in my business for you. And I say to you that I'm going to share the profits with you, then also, you should know that I'm also sharing the liabilities with you, if I lose money, what happens? You can lose them too, right? If I make money, you're gonna make some This is called mudaraba. This is called business.
What is GST? Government Services. That's another issue. That's another issue. Look, what I want to say is that whatever you're forced to do, is a different issue. But Business is business and interest in something else. Now people try to make interest seem like this business, but it's not business. It's robbing and stealing. It's exploiting exploitation at the highest, most sophisticated level. And it used to be against the law in all religions. It used to be against the law in Australia, it used to be against the law. And in Great Britain, it used to be against the law in America until the financial wizards companies, bankers, overpowered the governments and now sudden,
it's a big business. So all I can say just avoid it. Another subject,
you know, probably most of the letters that you get under your door, and most of the things that you're getting is from those people you left to try to get you to go back. Because misery loves company. But, but let me just say this to you, whatever it is, Islam has a medicine for that. Now, these sisters can advise you of something that you could recite. If there's some devils or some spirits, or whatever it is around is something we can recite, do get back.
And you're not possessed by any demons. Don't worry about that says somebody might want you to think that because you know the mind, the mind can play games on you by suggestions, but you recite could end and you recite the things that the sisters know for you to recite. If they don't know they'll ask and give this to you. You make your prayers. You keep yourself pure, you read the end and you're going to find out those letters is going to stop and then demons gonna get back. And after a while you're going to have the confidence of what it is you made the right choice. And don't let no doubts come to your mind. And these systems will tell you the right thing to do because many Muslims is
that happened to them not by yourself. So this medicine I'm telling you about what's your name system.
Hmm, Sandy, Mashallah Sandy in Sharma Don't worry, the sisters will give you some information if they don't know, before we leave, we'll provide them with something that you can do to.
Well, don't worry about it. Many of us suffer from depression.
Don't worry about 60. You know, many times the disorders that people say to somebody is a little bit unbalanced. Well, some of us we just know how to handle a little bit better. But all of us suffer from depression, or from hypertension, or hyperactivity or different kinds of situation, but we handle a little bit different. You're just being honest.
No, no, sister, you all right, you looking good?
Don't worry, you're okay. You're okay Sandy.
Wear your scarf says, identify yourself to see, if you feel good as a Muslim. You look good as a Muslim, you will be okay. But keep this in mind. It's only been four months.
Nothing Be patient system for yourself. I'm ask you a question.
When your parents drink water, if they're thirsty, does it stop? Does it does it does it? does it create your thirst?
Yeah, no, when your parents
And if they fall down, hit their head or something like that. There's like crazy pain. And you know, also, what you need to know is that what you owe to your parents is respect. What you owe to them is decency, dignity, and honesty. If you've been Muslim for a year, my suggestion for you system is that you should adopt your Islam for yourself.
And let them adjust to it. Because they're not going to be satisfied until you become a non Muslim. And even if you become a non Muslim, they go not still be satisfied, but they don't like the fact that you wasn't Muslim.
You don't call you you're damned if you do damned if you don't
live for yourself, live for God, live for your principles. And then share with your parents. They already know you Muslim, whether you want a hijab or not. They just it's just gonna be like in their face and clear now.
That's right, so now says listen, my suggestion is what you need to do is be conscious of your God, conscious of your moreso than your consciousness of your parents. Because a loss isn't according to Tacoma, you heard the statement right? To love conscious of a law, not conscious parents. So if you came to your parents decent to your parents, giving them gifts, talking to them, nice visiting them, fixing food for them, all those things, that's what you owe them. And in time, by your pronouncing your Islam, them seeing it, it's going to become a medicine and a therapy for them. Then they're gonna say what do you want that for? awareness, because I just want to be a better human being I
want to give more protection to myself than I do. Now. You got to explain now that medicine is going to be a little bit more than that they see you coming to your house and to see you but when you plan for what's going on there. What am I Oh, God, something. I mean, you know, you pay rent for this house, you don't just live here for nothing. You pay for the light, you got to pay something, but I got life. I can see I'm living. I owe something to God, I'm praying, we'd like to pray with me. So you'd be kind, but you have to still be adamant that your relationship with God. Because when you die, the first question God is gonna ask you, it's not about your parents. It's gonna be about you.
But it's gonna require you to have been kind to them, be decent to them, be dignified with them, and to have also talked to them about your conviction and understanding. Just take it step by step.
You can take take it any name you like, you can take any beautiful name you like, Christie, is it like a nickname? You're not like Christ. You're not like Christ, but this was a name. Or you can take the name money on which is the model of Christ. any name you like is a good name. Or if you'd like to name Christie, you can keep the name Christian Islam doesn't say you got to change your name. You know, if Christy means like price, and you'd like that name, can we call you Christy amatola Christie the bottom woman of above the surface of a law. So it's not in the name, it's in the heart. So you take those steps when you get ready.
Somebody has written something on him.
It could happen. It's just I mean these things there's a reality in magic. This although magic is a week of science, magic as a science people play with
people's minds, people work things on people. But what is more powerful than that is prayer.
Prayer is more powerful than magic. So if this man is not praying that he can be subject to a lot of things, my advice to you is to get him to somebody who's practicing Islam very well. That person will know someone that can recite the Quran on this man. And if there are some demons having some effect upon him, or if there's something in his own disorder having an effect upon them. And there's a medicine for it, of course, the Prophet peace and blessings upon them, he gave us medicine, how to use the Quran for this kind of situation. And throughout the Muslim world, people who have mental disorders, people who have problems of possessions or other kinds of situations that the Quran is
used along with conventional medicine. So it's possible that this gentleman, he needs some conventional medicine, too.
So you should probably see if you can get him to somebody who can evaluate him, or Muslim doctor, or Muslim psychiatrists.
Then if he does he does he does he does can eat by himself, can cross the street?
Can they cross the street?
But I'm saying can you cross the street? Can he count money? Does he know division, a male and female, he's alright.
He's gonna be alright. But just give them to somebody who's a practicing Muslim, and who has some kind of guidance, and they will have some resources to try to help him but he's also got to help himself.
it's, it's, it's, it's not recommended for the woman to cut the men's hair, who was not from her family, or for the man who's also had vested in women's hair, who was not from his family. But my suggestion for you on that issue system is
don't just quit your job. Because somebody tell you that this and this?
Well, you know, and then
my suggestion is, my suggestion is probably you probably cut women's hair, just as good as you cut men's.
So then one of this my personal suggestion, you should maybe make some cards, and add some skills to what you do for women. And so gradually, you start to sort of like, do you work in somebody else's shop or your home? in the shop, you work in a shop? And in that shop, women come in men comes out, right? Yes. Well, you have a chair that correct. Why don't you work out sometimes some something with the person in that shop to say, listen, because of my
moral convictions, I prefer not to, you know, deal with men. So the women that come out deal with them, it might cost you a little bit something in the beginning, but after a while, the women had come to you and find out that you do women's have very well. And you after a little while, you find that you won't miss that much. And so you'll solve that situation, you'll have a specialty, you'll have customers that have come to us special because of your personality also. So there'll be people that will respect that you'll get women as special customers and graduate, the men will come to you and the person who you work for in that office, they'll they'll respect you because you're
professional, and you'll be able to resolve that. But don't.
Don't take it as an absolute. Because a lot of times what happens, people who are religious,
a lot of times what happens people who are religious, you know, they come there real quick to say, Oh, this is wrong, or you can't do that. But they don't give you an option.
So I mean, the firemen can come and say the smoke in the house. And lady We ain't got no way for you to get out. So you got to jump out that third floor window. But they do make some provision something you don't jump on you don't jump on the ground. So the same thing in Islam, somebody can say Haram, somebody can say you can't do this, but they don't give you the steps by which and the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them always. When people came to him and became Muslims, he advised them in a way that it didn't cause harm to themselves. Because to become a Muslim doesn't mean to cause harm to yourself. If you've been doing something for years, God knows than your own
conscience, your own morality will lead you to find ways to resolve it and it'll happen.
For us who live in in the West, I would think it applies to almost everything that we do. First of all, feel a lot
That's the first time feel alone, be sincere, don't fool yourself and say, Well, I'm just gonna keep doing this. And gradually, I'm gonna get out of it some kind of way. And then you find, so two years, three years down the road is like a man that owns a liquor store, he becomes a Muslim. And he says, Well, you know, I'm a Muslim, and I'm gonna stop doing this here. But the money is just so good. And five years later, he's still selling alcohol. No, so don't fool yourself, but be sincere. And ask Allah for a way, and then talk to Muslims who are responsible, and they will also help you to find a way. And even I'm telling you, if that scholar or any person told you this, you shouldn't
do it there. Right? All I'm saying to you is that it's not just a matter of being right is how do we resolve it without causing some major
trauma or travesty in your life, and this is a matter of wisdom. That's it.
But you and I should not adopt any absolutes. We shouldn't look for no absolute sign that Enough is enough. No, until you die, or your parents died. You continue to keep that dialog open unless they say, Look, don't talk to me about your religion. I don't want to hear anything about it. I reject it totally. Don't enter my house, I reject you. I'm not entering your house, until they into some kind of absolute mess, then it's on them. But for you, be kind to them. Be patient with them in mind, the Prophet Noah, you know, the prophet decent blessing upon he had an uncle called, I will tell him right.
And, you know, I will tell him, he loved the Prophet. He loved him, took care of him, protected him when nobody else did it. Right. And the Prophet used to cry and beg him to become Muslim. But did he ever become a Muslim? He didn't. So who's who's controls that? Allah, but the Prophet never stopped. He never, he never stopped. He just kept one. But how did he do that in his face, but through his behavior, through kindness, by your family gifts, you know, acknowledge them, comb your mother's hair, you see, do whatever you can do for acts of kindness for your father, always say to them, how you love them, how you respect them, and how you wish that they would understand that and even make
dry for them. Because as long as they're living, you can make do it for them. But when they die, you can't even go after that for them. So continue and keep this in mind the Prophet Noah Elisa Lam, he gave down how long is this the Juno 950 years?
And you know how many people have joined him? Just a few.
So how does it make me a new for 20 years or 15 years just to keep going every day? Do something, say something nice to your mother say something nice to your father. And when they say the all that foolishness, you know, blah, blah, blah tells him Look, this is just a treasure. I just wish you would think I just pray to Allah, He opened your heart. And then you know, the pamphlets and booklets. You know, believe me, this is not really the download. Maybe they don't even like this idea of pamphlets and booklets. They don't even probably read the pamphlet books as a Christian is brought to him. It's your behavior.
Now You don't think so? You don't think so. But don't worry about that. That's your sincere. Let your sincerely and your behavior and your kindness, let that speak for you.
And always remind them
about the creator and don't use Islamic terms. They got a problem with Islamic terms. Don't say Allah say the Creator.
They got a problem and semi with the Quran. Just say the final scripture after the scripture came to Jesus Christ. If they got a problem with the word Prophet Muhammad said to them, that extraordinary messenger that came after Jesus Christ. I mean, you got to use hikma. See, and just keep on being kind being nice. And what happened? Allah will give you additional rewards and rewards whether they accepted they don't accept the model, increase your estimate.
It's up. It's an uphill struggle system. I gave down to my mother for 12 years she did not accept.
No, exactly. I'm sorry. It wasn't 12 years. I get down to my mother for seven years. She did not accept that for seven years. She took the pictures off the wall, she stopped putting it in the food. She stopped saying things but Jesus is the Son of God. She's to start accepting me come into the house and praying. And then in 1974, I was on my way to Hodge and the airport is nine years.
And my mother broke down, took her Shahada in the airport.
So I'm just telling you since that we can't say, never just keep on. And my behavior wasn't really that good. I'm just saying, I wasn't really that pious and all of that. So I'm not trying to act like, you know. So it's up to a lot of open hearts.
And my mother today, she doesn't really like practice Islam that much. But she has a good on, she thinks her son as a prince.
I'm thankful and grateful, because at least she's not saying Jesus is the Son of God. So I know that she passes away, that I know she's not dying with that stone on her neck. And that she did say Laila in the law mahamadou, Civil War, so awesome. So that's all we can pray for this.
Because the Islamic law is this, that a woman, a man, a Muslim man, he could marry a non Muslim woman, although it's not recommended, it's not recommended, but he can. And because of that, because men, the men have the first responsibility, not the authority so much, but the man has the responsibility of the maintenance, and for the guidance, and for the protection of the woman and the household. But if the if the if the woman marries a non Muslim man, then that man will take the forefront in that relationship, the issue of protection, issue of guidance, the issue of representation, and so what could happen to her and her children. So Islam doesn't allow that. So
you have to say to him that this is not my legislation, this is not my law. This is the law of Almighty God, if you are interested in me, you have to be interested in me, based upon the fact that I am a Muslim. Of course, I'm interested in you, we've had some feelings for each other and all of that, but the conditions have to do with Islam. And I will never have more feelings for you than I have for Islam, you shall make a claim. Now, if you said that to him, and he's coming all the way to Australia to see you, I kind of think to myself that he wants to know what kind of conditions that he might have to accept the have you. So think about that. Because if he knows from a distance, that
the only way that he can have you is that you're Muslim, that he probably wants to come and find out what he needs to do, what you need to do is have some brothers. No, it's not bad.
No, no, ain't necessarily become Muslim because of you. You might be the catalyst.
And there's nothing wrong with the catalyst that brought you into where you meant. It's just like this, if I'm stuck on the side of the road, okay, and I need a boost. Now, whoever Give me that boost doesn't matter. What I need to do is get off side of the road, is that right? So if you're the catalyst that causes him to accept this long, once he accepts it, then he begins to pray, he begins to acknowledge he begins to read, he begins this in your law for your relationship and becomes lawful.
Now, whatever was the catalyst doesn't matter, because a lot of us who are Muslims now, that catalysts, the person who was the catalyst for us become a Muslim might have been something like that. And I'm telling you from personal experience, I tell people different plan. My first marriage
was to a young lady that was a Muslim, and I wasn't a Muslim. And I asked her brother, could I meet her? And he said,
I said, why not? He said, You're not Muslim. So I mean, I was reading about Islam, but I kind of accelerated.
So I'm not gonna say I became a Muslim because of her. But it was kind of like, you know, it kind of was a catalyst. So the point is, I'm saying there's nothing wrong with that. It's just you handle things right for yourself. And then when he comes, let him understand that you have brothers who are Muslim, not Blood Brothers, but that these brothers will act for you like your older brothers. And that what does he got to do? He got to come to your older brothers, and you do the translation, all that he's gonna respect that. Now one of two things, either he goes back to where he comes from empty handed, and brokenhearted
or he accepts or considers the proposition of becoming a Muslim in order to have you and you pray for it since then, if this if Allah wants him to become Muslim, and all open up as far as the law doesn't want to be a Muslim, that amaze Allah wants you to have somebody else. And that's to do
it here in the West,
you're gonna find a couple, you're gonna find a few problems.
mean first of all, you wear your beard, which is beautiful. That's one thing. But if you're going if you are highly qualified, and you went into a job with a white robe on, and that red and white tie gear, which is good, like the Saudis, what they wear, and a coffee on and you name is Abdul Rahman. I'm the I don't know how many banks or sophisticated companies and law firms are going to look past all of that. So what the first thing I
I want to say to you is that, although I love to wear that to Percy, I'm not. I'm self employed. Linda, whatever I whatever God gives me to myself employment, nobody can tell me how to dress what to do. I thank God and I paid my dues for that. But if you're looking for a career, where you're going to have to work for someone else, my suggestion, brother of mine is that, and why don't you call me? Well, you know, I'm going to be here for about a week, sit down and talk with me. Because my background is human services. My background is also sociology. And I received people that come to me in my profession, and I help them to work things out to make them more employable, you see, to
help them to kind of become more socially functional, because this is the challenge that you have, you are sincere, you are Muslim, you want to go by the letter by the law, but it's evident that some senior Muslims, they did not sit down and really advise you properly. And if you're going to work in Australia, or America or the UK, or whatever, you are going to have to modify whatever it is until you get to the point where you kind of like control your career. You follow what I'm saying to you now doesn't mean compromising anything that is important in Islam, because there's a way to work it all out. There's a way for you to pray five times a day to fast during the month of Ramadan, to make
your to make you are meant to to make Jamaat okay to stay away from the Haram and to do all the things and still be able to work within the context of a systematic Korea
where you're not the boss. So you have the number four, the one Islam, you have you have the you have the bag, the low package to give, do you have a number for them? Okay, I'll give you the number before you leave. And brother just contact me. And I'll talk to you about some things that I think can will give you a few more options. Okay. And it's a little more personal rather than for me to discuss that with you. Okay, brother. Okay, so one of the brothers that's here that have the number one Islam I got a phone here but but beyond two gentlemen, no number yet. But before we leave, I get this number for you. So you can call me by the shower got dressed. Okay. Any other questions? I'll
give the brother that?
In the college, my friends and I had one of
them, right? Yes.
I didn't know nothing about.
Well, thank you, sister, honestly, just just My name is Khalid. So when you pray, just ask a lot of Forgive me.
Thank you so much.
we don't know system, you know, let me just tell you what the prophet peace and blessings be upon him said he said that, even though he's a prophet of he was a prophet of God. When they asked him about his mother and father, he said that they did not accept belief in a law they will be in they're going to be in hellfire.
So we don't know we can't make a verdict. But my suggestion for you is to,
to hope that in their life, somehow another, maybe they reconcile things with God, I don't know.
maybe some message came to them that clarified that issue that you don't know, you have the right to think the best. But if you know for sure they died saying that God was a man or that they will, or they will God or that someone has God other than who God really is, or associated partners with God, then
their station, unfortunately will do the station of anybody who died in that condition, unless they were totally ignorant of that. And usually God gives every human being a natural disposition to not do that. So think the best, but make the best preparation for yourself. Because when you meet God, and you've made the right decision for yourself, at least you'll be safe.
Then parents and children and relatives and friends, you're going to find on that date.
Everybody's going to think first for themselves. And it's not going to be wrong to think for yourself first, because everybody on that date would have had the chance to have made a decision before they got there. understand what I'm saying to you, but it's good if you just have to think about that. Because it shows that you have a clean heart and you feel responsible and a concern and there's nothing wrong with that it's natural.
Julian, I think that you should expect
De Islam is misunderstood, and, and to say the least a very provocative subject.
Therefore people will have a concern as to are you? Are you going to be brainwashed? Are you going to be taken captive or you're going to become a terrorist supporter or you joining these phonetic kinds of people? And so all these distortions are in people's minds from preconditioning?
Yes. So, so expect that kind of ignorance to prevail, but, and use your own discretion about creating a provocation? You know, in other words, yeah, I think if I went into a movie house,
and I was wearing dark glasses and, and black boots and gloves and, and, and a beard and all of that day, I think I kind of make everybody in that movie house No. nervous. So then on top of that, if I came in, I just announced, I'm a Muslim everybody, I will create a little bit of discomfort. So be discreet. But don't stop you study. Because of God had you go through all of this year that may you've been looking at the truth, you've been seeking the way for a long time?
Don't stop. Don't procrastinate. And don't complicate things by talking to people because that's what people gonna say, Oh, she been going through all this is another little thing, whatever it is, let them think that but come to your own conclusions, and come to those conclusions as quick as possible. Because around the corner, nobody knows death, sickness, anything else can come in life. And just keep keep keep keep moving through and use your discretion
to conserve you except to say la ilaha illAllah. Okay, so say that La Ilaha.
Yes, but you don't know much about Mohammed. Okay. Then c'est la ilaha
and say a shadow
an la ilaha illallah wa,
la sharika. Long.
So you said the first part,
if you understand what that means, that there is none to be worshipped except Almighty God, you start with that. Then you read about the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon his legacy from documentation, when you convince that he is who He said He is, and when we say he is the new heir, the statement what I showed you under Mohammed or
at least for right now, least you have a respectful concern about him consideration for him, isn't it?
Do you accept that he, he, he could have been a prophet and messenger of God if he was connected to Jesus as He said, Would you accept that then go with that acceptance? And at least if something happens to you, we will be the witnesses that you have accepted that the law in the law you see and this may be enough for you inshallah, and start from their system as they are Muslim here that you know, well.
The Sister Sister you help her with that in sha Allah and witness that she has said shadow law law. You see witness that she has said that and talk to her and provide them with information that she needs. I think in this pack, there is a book called rahega Maktoum Red Seal nectar. Isn't it in that book?
Good, Joan. I mean, Jillian, we this small booklet
you are pretty intelligent lady. And this booklet new this book you can read it probably 234 days.
Read it. And after that while I'm still here.
Give us a call call my wife.
Not that one. There's another one. There's not in there. Okay, this is the she'll get that for you. You said you know the sealed nectar right? Get that in for her to read because she read it in three or four or five days at the most. And then after that I think she'll be convinced or there's something with smaller forgeries.
inshallah, so, Julian May May Allah guide you for the step that you already took and help you and this sister who's here and other sisters will assist you and if you come to the conviction of Mohammed Rasulullah this investment problem said immediately when you as soon as you think it and then after that said formerly with a group of sisters inshallah and you'll be on your way sister, okay.
You don't have to say Mohammed de su de la Peace and blessings upon
In front of witnesses, God will witness that for you. But it's better for you to say it in front of witnesses because then they acknowledge they help and on Day of Judgment they will be also witnesses for you. Okay sister hamdulillah
Ryan for yourself I don't think it's necessary for you to say the logo on the shoulder. Because first thing you got to do is move that bolt out the way
for you go down that road you got to move the ball down the road otherwise you're gonna crash every time you got to move that issue of Jesus is the Son of God and that Jesus is God. You don't believe in any of that.
So I'm trying to clarify these What is it to believe it?
Oh, to follow morality.
So you don't believe in the Trinity at all? No, I do believe in Jesus Son of God at all. I mean, you mentioned this okay, but you don't believe that he that God has a son at all? No. So okay, so you do believe in love. And you love Jesus Christ? Yes. Beautiful. We on the same track. Okay, now, but you don't know much about the Prophet Mohammed.
But you don't know enough yet to say that he's a prophet and messenger of God. Okay, then say after mi La ilaha
Okay, and then say eyeshadow, and La ilaha illallah wa de
la sharika lah. Now, this means you bore witness that there's none of the words except the law and that he's one without any partners. Now you read because you're intelligent intellectual guy, who came a long way but you're still pretty smart. You need to read tonight, tomorrow about who Mohammed
is. When you see the relationship between him and Jesus Christ, you're gonna love Mohammed just like you love Jesus Christ. Then you'll say, Well, I should do Mohammed Rasulullah the new in
and you can still love Jesus like I love Jesus. But you're going to include that Mohammed Salah, same as the last messenger and prophet of Almighty God, and then you will have a bonafide legacy that you can follow up because none of us who love Jesus Christ have a bonafide legacy that's the problem. The bona fide legacy of Jesus Christ had been corrupted has been changed and been switched up and interpreted in so many different ways that doesn't lead us really to his life and that's why a lot of set Mohammed so long
so read that Okay, brother. Yes.
That's correct. Yes. Now who's who's a good friend of yours here right in front of this gentleman right a butcher named brother
for him that means understanding for him transfer.
transfer your understanding of this matter to Ryan. Okay. Equals him tomorrow morning for breakfast or equal him tomorrow for dinner in the next two three days. Talk about Mohammed de la and nothing else because once he accepts that he's in and sister What's your name back there?
nagamine Masha Allah says do the same thing. Concentrate on sister Gillian just on Mohammed those who love Him because once she accepts that, that's the completion right there. Okay.
Okay, c'est la
ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallal laahu alayhi wa sallam ash hadoo and
ilaha illallah wa, what ash I do. anna Muhammadan.
Abdu who was to some law, law who alayhi wa sallam me from the law.
Thank you ever
been sent your tape for martial law?
I think you really got to look at that when you tell.
Powerful if you inspired me Marshall.
Marshall, thank you system SHOT Show.
Did you know that suicide is among the three leading causes of death in the western
developed world, I said the western developed world
with a semblance, and the trappings
are the most preeminent.
After all this time,
and the people walk away from that grave,
What about that person in the grave? What's happening?
Because you know, and I know that death is almost like sweeping
the army theologically and historically adequate position, with respect to Jesus to recognize him, not only as a prophet, Allah, certainly there, but as himself, the divine Son of God.
And argue that a failure within Islam to recognize Jesus, as the divine Son of God has significant consequences for Muslim faith and practice. And you show us please, that star player didn't have a tampering or forgery that was time messy, that the entire Christian world was duped without question. It was in the past, throughout church history, we've always had controversies. We've had people who have denied certain parts of the Scriptures, and they have historically recorded marcion in the second century denied the Old Testament is a Christian and certain parts of the New Testament, there was a controversy. People have posted writings were written argument debate back
and forth. Here we find no such historical evidence or manuscript evidence of forgery, from the church fathers, from the council's that will help in nicea whether in the fourth century or the fifth century? Or is it taken from the mouth of Jesus Christ Himself, and this is what we want to discuss. We believe that Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ and immaculate woman, a pure woman, but not a woman who herself was God, nor venerated, to be worshipped, nor giving birth to a god man, man, God, three gods, or someone to be worshipped, but that she gave birth, as God ordered her to do so. And that Jesus was like the birth of Adam. Only it was less complicated. Adam had no father, no
mother, at least Jesus had a mother
with a man goes into the store down the street, and the Muslim is selling her on demand. So what you're doing brothers?
This is you selling
this alcohol you're selling?
This is my gambling that you're doing. You're facilitating for what his?
What you're doing brothers. Are you standing on the corner selling drugs? What are you doing? They tell him, you don't get it, we shoot you to.
And for our young people that are in the streets.
We don't like you to be in the streets.
We don't like who you are within the streets. We don't like what you are doing in the streets. We don't like what it does to the image of Islam, but we love you.
We love you. You are the sons of Islam and the daughters of Islam and the future of Islam and inshallah tala among you
is that there's no question a human being can ask about life.
any aspect of life but the Quran has given the answer.
Not only is the Quran given an answer, but the Quran has directed us towards an example that illustrates for us that example that that answer
mine at this point. Now my advice for you is that what you should continue to do is you should move on from that 1315 year old experience, to the experience where you are right now and understand that there's a whole nother stage. There's no ceiling on this issue he saw didn't bring no ceiling. He brought a ticket. And the Holy Spirit that you're talking about that was Gabriel.
So we're not followers of Gabriel, we follow that next prophet that also jabril came to and brought that scripture, you should read the quote and you should read the life of the Prophet peace and blessings upon them and not be afraid of it.
Okay, and by doing so,
So you may find out that the natural progression of where you are right now is Islam. That's just my advice to you.
off the shelf and look at it, not for its content. Look at the quality the Christmas. Look at the advancement. Look at the graphics. Look at the color, listen to the sound,
and for the Muslims.
Go to the bookstores and see what's available there. inferior treasure.
So the Kufa they are making the investment to make trash superior. But the Muslims, they're not making any investment to make the treasure.
Better than the trash.
