After praising Allah subhana wa tada azzawajal

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

sending salutations upon His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

and also sending our respect

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

upon those who stood

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

who stood by the Sunnah

00:02:27--> 00:02:27

and stood

00:02:29--> 00:02:36

by the path of Allah subhanaw taala. And as a consequence, protracted the dour,

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

up until the present time.

00:02:43--> 00:02:58

Remember remembering that the Messenger of Allah has a lot of them always. as a marketer, whenever he gave a public talk, he always reminded us that the best words the best words is the words of the Quran.

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

And the best remainder

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

is remainder from the Sunnah of Rasulullah. He's a lot.

00:03:10--> 00:03:18

And the worst of all advice is the advice which subverts those two.

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, that today on Juma

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

a day which is better than all of the days

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

that Allah He allows the medicine

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

which we're delivering in this clinic.

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

It reaches the hearts and the minds

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

and causes Muslims

00:03:44--> 00:03:48

to change their thinking and as a result of changing their thinking,

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

change their behavior.

00:03:54--> 00:03:58

And Muslims change their thinking and change their behavior.

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

The Muslims will change the world.

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

Today our discussion is about

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

the Quran

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

and media.

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

Some Muslims are thinking

00:04:24--> 00:04:30

that the message of the Quran and the message of the Sunnah, it is a matter of religion.

00:04:32--> 00:04:37

And therefore they are reciting the Quran, in the message and in their homes.

00:04:38--> 00:04:46

But outside in the universities and in their workplaces and in the streets, they're having some other kinds of calamity.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

And they are teaching Quran

00:04:53--> 00:04:53

and Sunnah

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

and Islamic sciences, in the masjid in the madrassas

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

in their homes

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

or in their common lives,

00:05:07--> 00:05:08

in the street,

00:05:09--> 00:05:14

in the universities, on their jobs, in the workplaces, they are watching

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

their hearing.

00:05:18--> 00:05:24

They are really and they are communicating with a totally different calamity.

00:05:27--> 00:05:34

And it is as if we are living as two different people. In fact, we are living like monastics

00:05:37--> 00:05:41

we are acting very religious in the mosque.

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

We are asking the people, what is your delille for this?

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

What is your delille for that?

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

What is your evidence? What is your proof, and we are arguing with each other based upon what ideological group that we belong to.

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

In fact, we don't eat with each other. Because of that, we don't stand with each other. We don't visit each other. We don't even pray together based upon what we believe to be the most correct collab.

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

But inside of our homes, we're not talking like that.

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

And our workplaces and the people that we work for, we're not talking like that.

00:06:23--> 00:06:26

We're riding on the trains and the buses, we're not acting like that.

00:06:28--> 00:06:32

This creates a dichotomy in the human mind of separation.

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

That Muslims are living for two different kinds of collapse.

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

In the time, Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam.

00:06:47--> 00:06:53

The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he prepared a group of people whose thinking

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

and behavior

00:06:57--> 00:07:06

was consistent throughout their lives. They did not have a special column for the message, and another column for outside.

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

There was not living rituals of Islam, no there was living the system and the values of Islam.

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

As a result of that,

00:07:20--> 00:07:22

within the 43 years,

00:07:23--> 00:07:45

that the Quran was revealed, in fact, within the 23 years that the Quran was revealed, the Kalam of the Quran, and the Kalam of Muhammad's allows them revolutionized means that change it from the inside and from the outside the entire Arabian peninsula that were steeped

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

in the collapse of Jay Hillier.

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

23 years

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

20 years after that,

00:07:55--> 00:07:59

they changed three civilizations

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

from the inside and the outside.

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

Because they applied the column of the court

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

and the column of the sooner

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

in every aspect of their lives.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

And today,

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

Muslims are using

00:08:21--> 00:08:26

their phones, some which they are not able to control, when we're praying even.

00:08:28--> 00:08:52

They use the iPad. They're using smartphones, smart TVs, they're going to the cinema, that downloading movies, they're using social media. In fact, our children rely 80% of their information and education is no longer coming from the school. It is coming from social media.

00:08:54--> 00:09:05

But we are acting as Muslims like social media is like something like it is like okay, it's nice if we have it. But if we don't have it, no big deal.

00:09:07--> 00:09:12

But nobody's house here is without a refrigerator. refrigerator.

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

It is Mr. Harbor, it will preserve your food. But no one was without refrigerator.

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

No home is without stove.

00:09:24--> 00:09:29

Although the stove is Mr. habit, it will help facilitate the cooking of your food.

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

But no one was without it. Or microwave

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

or bed or table

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

automobile

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

all the other instruments that you see that we're using and spending

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

but somehow we are thinking that media

00:09:53--> 00:09:57

is only something that is optional if we have it Mashallah.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

So, let us just

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

guss core and media and see whether or not it is optional.

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

First let us first define the word media

00:10:11--> 00:10:25

and the world English dictionary the word media means communication that reaches large numbers of people did to corral with large numbers of people. Yes, the whole world

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

Rama de Lille alameen the whole world.

00:10:34--> 00:10:34

Therefore,

00:10:36--> 00:10:44

it could be the spoken word, it could be the written word or that would just communicate it in an audio or visual format.

00:10:46--> 00:10:49

In the Oxford Dictionary, it means

00:10:50--> 00:11:01

the mean the main means of mass communication that is television, cinema, radio, newspapers and now the platforms of social media.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

With that general description

00:11:08--> 00:11:14

we can consider the very first words and phrases of the Quran as what mass media

00:11:15--> 00:11:26

the very first is of the Quran. Maybe we forgot, we get so sophisticated in our you know, we all want to hear 15 or 20 different

00:11:27--> 00:11:53

MacLean. It's not enough for us to listen to one party. I will call it here. I will have this here. I will. I'm here not enough. We have to have on our phone, we have to have 10 or 15 McLean and we want them to recite for us seven different times types of Kira See that's how we want we want like buffet, we want designer Kara

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

even we will pay

00:11:57--> 00:12:20

10,000 euros to have somebody to come from Egypt or from Syria or from Jordan or from Palestine or some other place or Pakistan or India or wherever or Morocco to come in and Juma we don't have enough people here to recite we import them to recite for us just for Ramadan. Mashallah, because in the Torah, we we have to have design of Kira

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

even though the people don't even know what he's saying.

00:12:25--> 00:12:29

And in many cases, the man who's reciting he don't even know what he said himself.

00:12:30--> 00:12:41

He know what he's reciting. He has the correct mahadesh but he don't know the meanings and the language of the people. That's why he cannot sit down and explain in between the press.

00:12:45--> 00:12:50

You see, the first five is of the Quran. What is it?

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

How the blaze similarity militia Tanga regime to some layer of manga

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

in Santa Mini, Allah.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

Allah, Allah.

00:13:13--> 00:13:13

Allah,

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah.

00:13:21--> 00:13:37

So the first five verses of the Quran subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanaw taala his wisdom, the first verses of the Quran, in fact, the first word of the revelation was what

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

a revelation of what

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

divine mass media

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

he said twice.

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

Then after that, he mentioned read with the help of

00:13:57--> 00:14:00

writing panela

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

then he mentioned that reading and writing helps the human being to what

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

to know

00:14:11--> 00:14:24

writing knowledge, what is that mass media, so the Quran and the y e of the sooner that was the first mass media in Islam.

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

Then Allah He said concerning that

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

the very last Ayat of the Quran, what was it?

00:14:32--> 00:14:35

Le oma acmella Tula comb dinoco.

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

Murthy

00:14:39--> 00:14:45

See, now Allah telling you he's completed the message

00:14:47--> 00:14:53

please completed this mass media, this divine column.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

So in fact, the word called n itself. What does it mean?

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

Para Yukari it means what? That which is read, that which is recited. Therefore the Quran is a divine medium, why he, the word why he it means that which is revealed by what? divine inspiration, mass media to the human beings.

00:15:26--> 00:15:36

Dear brothers and sisters today 80% of all information and education that comes to us comes to the platforms of mass communication or media.

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

See what the Quran says.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

Allah subhanaw taala elements in the Quran

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

ellisville Arabic photo

00:16:01--> 00:16:01

Maui de

sala using words call to the way of your lawn was

00:16:13--> 00:16:17

beautiful, preaching another form of media

00:16:23--> 00:16:28

and also respond with beautiful arguments

00:16:29--> 00:16:41

to the rhetoric which they are giving to you. Your Lord knows best, those who go astray and he knows best those who are guided by what those words

00:16:42--> 00:16:47

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran and the surah which is called a net.

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

He says

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

I'm starting in disorder called facilite.

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

woman

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

called Amanda Illa.

00:17:03--> 00:17:35

And who is better in this speech than the one who is calling towards Allah subhanho wa Taala, towards the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And after that, they are doing what they are acting within the context of that calling with good actions was beneficial actions that do what compliment the calling. And they say through that, I am Muslim.

00:17:36--> 00:17:39

I am from the Muslim in

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

our province, a lot of them said

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

what

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

I

00:17:50--> 00:17:58

call, relate Balu preach, teach deliver.

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

From me, meaning from my son from my teaching one.

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

Even one verse, even one statement was

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam he said in his final,

00:18:20--> 00:18:35

he says those who are present relate to those who are not present for those who are not present will act and respond to this better than those who are present.

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

This is media this is this is media.

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

The brothers and sisters today.

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

We need to make a focus effort

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

to engage and compete in media.

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

Media is not optional. Media is

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

binding.

00:19:05--> 00:19:17

We have to do it. Because if you don't do it, others will do it to you. If you don't have media, then you're you and your children are subordinate to somebody else's media.

00:19:20--> 00:19:24

And the Muslims in this country, and the Muslims all over the world

00:19:26--> 00:19:35

are subordinate. We are being penetrated our minds and our hearts are being penetrated. the minds of our children

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

are being captured.

00:19:39--> 00:19:47

the hearts of our children are being harnessed, poison routed through media.

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

You can say whatever you want to say

00:19:52--> 00:19:55

30 years ago, some of the old guys.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

They said the TV is shaitaan

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

Throw the TV out.

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

I don't know how many TVs they threw out before they got a big one.

00:20:09--> 00:20:30

Now, whenever there is two, three TVs, nobody throw it out no more. And it doesn't matter, you can throw it out. But guess what, your children, they have it with them one or two in their pockets. So throw it out. Now, you want to throw something out, throw your children out the window when you throw out the phone.

00:20:34--> 00:20:37

And if you don't have TV in your home

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

doesn't matter.

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

The children know where to go to watch television. And in fact, they don't even watch television anymore.

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

They have iPads.

00:20:50--> 00:20:54

smartphones, in the hands of people who are not so smart.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

And they are using social media platforms that their mothers and fathers don't even understand.

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

The mothers and fathers just now caught up to

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

they don't know what is Facebook.

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

They don't know what is YouTube. And they definitely don't know what is Twitter.

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

But your children they know

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

and they are there.

00:21:25--> 00:21:39

And guess what these platforms, they are owned, they are controlled, they are manipulated, they are launched by the coup far, and they are used as a part of what's called info war.

00:21:41--> 00:21:57

info. The terminology means using missing information as a tool of warfare panela using this information as a tool of warfare.

00:21:58--> 00:22:28

So if you don't have a media platform, by default you are absorbing every day psychosomatically you are absorbing this information or you are reacting to distortions. So you yourself are reacting to or you are absorbing misinformation and distortions, which is being used as a tool of warfare to destabilize you, your children and Islam.

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

panela

00:22:33--> 00:22:45

we Muslims cannot simply react to misinformation or misconceptions. We have to learn to respond effectively, but you cannot respond effectively. If you don't have the tools.

00:22:49--> 00:22:56

You can pick up a hot pot on the stove or take something hot out of the oven. Unless you have something to hold it.

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

You need a tool.

00:23:00--> 00:23:03

The tools are expensive.

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

The tools are sophisticated,

00:23:07--> 00:23:17

but the tools are available to you and me and Allah subhanaw taala he said also in the Quran. One of the characteristics of the believers is what why matters

00:23:20--> 00:23:30

and those who spend out of what We have provided for them. So if Allah provided for the kuffaar This means he also provided for who provided for us.

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

The non Muslims

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

are investing heavily in multimedia.

00:23:41--> 00:23:42

Let me give you an idea

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

between Google

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

and Facebook and YouTube.

00:23:52--> 00:23:55

Google right now on the market has a value

00:23:56--> 00:24:00

of approximately $76 billion.

00:24:02--> 00:24:10

Facebook went on the market last year, early this year ever, for $100 billion.

00:24:12--> 00:24:20

Twitter just went on the public market for 25 billion and it just came out three years ago.

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

And they say in five years Twitter will go past Google and Facebook.

00:24:28--> 00:24:32

YouTube has received more than

00:24:34--> 00:24:41

5 trillion hits from around the world in the last 10 years. trillion

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

billion trillion.

00:24:47--> 00:24:54

So the non Muslims are investing heavily. Viacom the most powerful satellite

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

composite consortium in the world is controlling 70

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

4% of all satellite programs in the world

00:25:07--> 00:25:18

there are presently now over 1871 channels available on the internet today.

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

Therefore, the Muslims

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

are way behind.

00:25:28--> 00:25:36

And the whole world there is approximately 72 Muslim channels, most of them Bali, Bali singing songs,

00:25:38--> 00:25:57

our channel, Asian channel, African channel, cultural channel, then there's the religious channel, Salafi channel, Sufi channel, you know, the Hanafi channel, this channel, that one on Medea, so far, whatever the case might be these little n right here, you got two channels,

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

two channels in

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

and guess what?

00:26:05--> 00:26:19

The Dutch government is giving the Muslims and other religions they are paying $500 or 500 euros a minute. They are giving to us

00:26:20--> 00:26:42

because of the law. Every religion has to have a certain amount of time and access to public media. And the Dutch government is paying Muslims and others 500 euros a minute to produce TV. But the Muslims of the Netherlands is investing

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

Subhan Allah

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

Subhana Allah

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

Muslims

00:26:51--> 00:26:52

we just talking

00:26:53--> 00:26:56

then when someone insults Muhammad's A lot of us,

00:26:57--> 00:27:13

Muslims, he wants to burn things down. He wants to kill somebody. He wants to shoot somebody. He wants to march in the streets like we are the lovers of the prophet SAW Sam and like the prophet SAW Sam, he needs protection. You don't know what's Allahu Allah salami

00:27:14--> 00:27:31

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This means he don't need no protection. This was some of the means. He has already been protected by our last panel to Allah and no one can stain his character and no one can curse him and affect him. It is like the moon.

00:27:32--> 00:27:38

Dogs cannot wild barking dogs. They cannot affect the full moon

00:27:39--> 00:28:10

and Mohammed's loves them he is brighter than the full moon. So what the Muslims is shouting about from their own inadequacies, their own weakness, their own reaction, they're gonna do something that could have been done nothing. So this is the way they want to say okay, you want to slam the Privacy Act kill you. So wordprocessing did not tell somebody to kill, kill the people who broke his tooth why he don't tell the people killed the people who slammed him. No one lost it. But he

00:28:14--> 00:28:19

responded to those who was cursing the Prophet last name. And the response of Allah was enough.

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

Those who cursed the Prophet arcims wife,

00:28:24--> 00:28:26

the response of Allah was enough

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

Muslims

00:28:31--> 00:28:45

the non Muslims are investing heavily in multimedia, we also have to invest and we must compete with them. Today, we are besieged by radical and prejudicial media.

00:28:47--> 00:28:55

And they are spreading vile, filthy misconceptions and purposeful distortions concerning Islam and Muslims.

00:28:57--> 00:29:01

In fact, some elements of the Western governments and media

00:29:03--> 00:29:12

they have launched a conspiracy which is titled, info war against Islam, to undermine its growth.

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

And Allah He said that

00:29:17--> 00:29:19

Allah He said, The youth will

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

say

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

they will blow with their mouth.

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

In order to do what try to distinguish

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

the light of Allah.

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

They have been blowing with their mouths for 1400 years. It's upon Allah, what the blowing with their mouths mean whistling, clapping, writing, talking, making cinema you know, lying, distorting, pushing it out. Clapping saying this is saying that blowing with their mouth, another form of what media to do what to extinguish the light of Allah. But the more they blow

00:30:01--> 00:30:07

More than light comes in spite of the Muslims and their weakness and their stinginess.

00:30:08--> 00:30:15

suppiler just last year 135,000 people into Islam

00:30:16--> 00:30:31

and so far this year, and it's not over yet 109,000 people except this I'm only talking about America, my country, not talking about Europe, just America last year.

00:30:34--> 00:30:41

So between last year and so far this year, close to 250,000 people into Islam

00:30:45--> 00:30:46

in spite of the Muslims,

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

dear brothers and sisters,

00:30:53--> 00:31:00

but most of the Muslim leaders and scholars today have taken one or two positions

00:31:01--> 00:31:07

either they are intimidated, which forces them to do what apologize

00:31:08--> 00:31:12

are we Sorry boss? Oh boss, no, we don't mean then.

00:31:13--> 00:31:15

No, boss, we know God.

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

No boss, we're good niggas.

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

Excuse me, we're good Muslims.

00:31:23--> 00:31:29

Oh, boss. You see we mouth. We solve. We intellectual.

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

Just boss rappers kickers

00:31:34--> 00:31:36

say anything about us, we will just whisper

00:31:38--> 00:31:43

and on the outside, whatever we have to say, we sing it low.

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

So we don't disturb the boss.

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

Or the bosses.

00:31:50--> 00:31:58

Were apologizing to people saying to people that Oh no, you see, Islam is only a peaceful religion.

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

It is.

00:32:02--> 00:32:50

But there is no dignity in being peaceful. When you were being stabbed and kicked and raped and undermined, and and your lands being taken, and your children being killed and the legs of your old people being broken, and your places being burned down and your natural resources being stolen? slam don't tell us to do that. But we have to be balanced, but not apologise. Secondly, we should not be cowed down. And we should not be having fear and intimidated by any government. No loss upon dialysis. Why are you cowed down, calling out for help to the United Nations when you ought to be uppermost.

00:32:51--> 00:32:59

In the law, you have bola de ukata una feasability saphan kana home banyana, Massoud

00:33:01--> 00:33:04

Muslim Muslims, most of our scholars,

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

they have been intimidated by their own governments.

00:33:10--> 00:33:16

And most of our scholars who live in the West have been intimidated by the power of the West.

00:33:18--> 00:33:30

Most of our scholars and students have knowledge they don't have the qualification, or they don't have the courage to stand and go to a program and talk with them live.

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

Tell them set up the cameras.

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

Set up the microphones.

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

And let's talk live.

00:33:41--> 00:34:11

Live. This way nobody can cut and paste and change and flip the words and all of that. Let's talk about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam let's talk about the Quran. Let's talk about Islam. Let's talk about Islam today. Not yesterday, today. And let's talk about Islam tomorrow. And let's talk about Islam. Not in the Muslim countries. But let's talk about Islam here live with the scholars who want to do that.

00:34:12--> 00:34:18

Who are they? Where are they? Those who read the books, those who give the fatwa, those who give

00:34:19--> 00:34:28

those who have the knowledge, those who have the language, those who have the culture, those who have Islam and they were born with this, where are they

00:34:30--> 00:34:36

they are doing one or two things. Either they are intimidated or they are apologizing.

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

The second thing

00:34:40--> 00:34:48

another group of the Muslim leaders and scholars, they have decided to become radical reactionaries.

00:34:49--> 00:34:58

Radical reactionaries so they are telling young people isolate yourself from the dunya

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

Make away from the society.

00:35:05--> 00:35:23

Don't act like them. Don't just like them to eat like them. Don't work with them. Don't build with them. Don't live with them. But I say, go to the mountains, go to the desert, go to the jungle and wait until your mukaiyama comes because Islam will be pure in that sense.

00:35:24--> 00:35:32

are they telling them establish a free lever in a place where there is already government so Pamela,

00:35:33--> 00:35:39

you don't think Allah subhanaw taala could have sent his messages a lot of them to establish khilafah when they first go to heaven.

00:35:42--> 00:36:15

You don't think Allah subhanaw taala he could have called said Malaika to help the prophesy to establish he left or to establish Islam in Mecca for 13 years, while they will be killed and tortured, and demeaned. Now, the wisdom of Allah Subhana, WA tada allow you want the process, to make hedgerow and to establish his own state. When Muslims have their own state, then they have the capacity to do what purified that state and then spread that state throughout the world.

00:36:16--> 00:36:21

But some Muslims, they want to establish a law firm in London,

00:36:23--> 00:36:24

in Copenhagen,

00:36:25--> 00:36:30

in the Netherlands, in America, and they on the welfare.

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

Muslims is on the welfare,

00:36:36--> 00:36:46

their children go to public schools. They're women taking from the welfare, the men sitting in coffee shops, smoking, happy, bubbly.

00:36:49--> 00:36:53

They don't even want to support their own method. But they talking about a lever,

00:36:54--> 00:36:56

just kurama favi

00:36:57--> 00:37:03

just empty talk. And some scholars is pushing them pushing them pushing them. We don't know who those guys are.

00:37:06--> 00:37:14

And those collars, who's pushing them, they have not been able to establish anything in their own country for the last 600 years.

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

For the last 600 years.

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

Both of these positions, intimidation and apology, and radical reaction ism, they are an Islamic and they are inappropriate.

00:37:31--> 00:37:49

And if anybody says it's not, we need to talk about it. We don't need to argue about it. We don't need to call each other names. Let's come together in the public with dignity and respect for each other and we can talk about it. Islam as a religion of talking. Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:37:54--> 00:37:54

He says

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

in the

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

first three who

00:38:02--> 00:38:09

this means like is this like how you can make us dislike, choose a group of people as arbiters and then let's come and talk.

00:38:11--> 00:38:19

But when we come to talk, those arbitrators make the final word between us, because it's called binding arbitration.

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

You and I cannot argue.

00:38:23--> 00:38:46

And you take your side and I take my side. No, no, let's make some people as the arbitrators. You choose three people, I choose three people, they all honorable people with integrity and knowledge. And they form a board. And we come in we talk for a day or two or a week about the issues affecting us. And they become the arbiters and if we feel they're binding arbitration is binding upon us.

00:38:48--> 00:39:01

Our leaders and scholars must reflect deeply, our leaders and scholars must respond appropriately. Our leaders and scholars must respond with dignity.

00:39:02--> 00:39:19

Our business people must Garner their financial resources and invest in the tools that are necessary to create a sophisticated media institution and media infrastructure. You and I, the common people

00:39:20--> 00:39:29

must train ourselves how to use the tools of social media. And you and I we have to be prepared to invest.

00:39:32--> 00:39:38

Today, Muslim governments are willing to invest in Mega masjids.

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

I have visited for message,

00:39:44--> 00:39:52

one that has been built now. And three that has already built the 3ds already built between them, costs 1.4 billion.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

Three machines cost 1.4 billion Another one is being built

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

Which will cost $700 million.

00:40:05--> 00:40:15

That means a total of $2.1 billion only for for big mega message, which only mostly tourist is going there.

00:40:16--> 00:40:17

Tourists

00:40:19--> 00:40:23

go to the exit prayer to the white mosque in Abu Dhabi,

00:40:25--> 00:40:39

which caused by the way, just the building itself, not the land, not the whole infrastructure, not the maintenance, not the budget, only the building itself $565 million

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

at Vegeta at two domes,

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

at two domes,

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

and the treasure time

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

35 people,

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

palace

00:41:02--> 00:41:09

Muslim governments and Muslim wealthy people. They are investing in Super skyscrapers

00:41:11--> 00:41:11

in Abu Dhabi.

00:41:13--> 00:41:14

They are over

00:41:15--> 00:41:20

576 skyscrapers that are more than 67 storeys high

00:41:22--> 00:41:28

67 storeys high, over 576 skyscrapers.

00:41:32--> 00:41:33

And if you go to

00:41:34--> 00:41:49

the French prayers in most of that country, in Dubai and Dubai, go to the masjid for most of the methods have no more than 2530 people maximum. That's it.

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

In Saudi Arabia,

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

one very wealthy man

00:41:56--> 00:41:59

has organization called the kingdom foundation.

00:42:00--> 00:42:05

He is putting up a building now, which is will be the tallest building in the world.

00:42:06--> 00:42:14

It's called the Mile High skyscraper. That means from the ground to the top, it is one mile high,

00:42:15--> 00:42:17

almost touching the clouds.

00:42:18--> 00:42:22

That building will cost $1.6 billion.

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

And it's in the desert, literally.

00:42:31--> 00:42:33

So we're not blaming them.

00:42:34--> 00:42:38

We're just looking at the issue of Islam.

00:42:39--> 00:42:49

We think, Wow, millions of people are starving, they don't even have a glass of water, don't have a piece of bread to eat.

00:42:51--> 00:43:01

And those same countries. And those same people, they're not willing to invest in meeting the challenge of modern multi media.

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

The Muslims around the world, including you and I here today.

00:43:08--> 00:43:15

They're not willing to invest in media, but they're willing to invest for themselves. Everybody has car,

00:43:16--> 00:43:18

everybody has home, everybody has rugs.

00:43:19--> 00:43:25

They're investing for themselves and their families, but they don't want to invest in media.

00:43:27--> 00:43:41

The brothers and sisters advise you and advise myself, we have to rethink out this issue of media. Is that a responsibility of one group of people to do media or to do dour? Now, it is your responsibility of all of us.

00:43:42--> 00:43:44

My suggestion

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

is that the Muslims

00:43:48--> 00:43:51

need to set aside a portion of their wealth

00:43:53--> 00:43:55

and give it to who they believe is trustworthy.

00:43:57--> 00:43:59

In every place like this

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

self, if you make 40,000 euros a year,

00:44:07--> 00:44:22

that's your income, which is the average income. For those who's not on euro. I don't know if you call it welfare here. But those who is not on welfare, the average income of the people of this country is about 40,000 euros a year.

00:44:23--> 00:44:26

You should set aside 2000 just for media.

00:44:28--> 00:44:33

What kind of media would you have? If all the Muslims invest in media?

00:44:36--> 00:44:43

The Muslims of America, the Muslims of Europe should do the same. Because in America

00:44:45--> 00:44:50

we have the freedom and we have the wealth to do that.

00:44:51--> 00:44:53

And lots of Patel is going to ask you

00:44:55--> 00:44:56

about that which he gave to you.

00:44:57--> 00:45:00

And I was gonna ask you about what you were working

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

To invest for his word for his dour

00:45:05--> 00:45:14

and to address the challenge of the kuffaar who are undermining Islam through the media wakulla Kali had was suffering Lucha de la ku

00:45:22--> 00:45:29

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam on as you fill me so low and he was in Amala. And he was happy he was was he woman, whatever

00:45:30--> 00:45:40

Deborah's, is in Islam, I asked the last panel, that, that I respond to the words which I have given to you.

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

And ask Allah subhanaw taala, that you will depersonalized what has been said,

00:45:46--> 00:45:52

that means, take the person away, and ponder on the words.

00:45:53--> 00:46:05

Because when we keep personalizing things, we do that, because we don't really want to think about what the other person has said, we always want to deal with the vessel and not what is in it.

00:46:07--> 00:46:19

What I said has to do with me and with you, it's a matter of commitment. If you don't agree, like the doctor says, the dentist will say, leave your teeth alone, they will just go away.

00:46:22--> 00:46:23

don't invest in media.

00:46:26--> 00:46:28

Your children will invest.

00:46:30--> 00:46:31

This year,

00:46:32--> 00:46:37

Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon, these two companies together,

00:46:39--> 00:46:50

they invested $36 million only to modify the behavior of your children. So panela 36 million

00:46:51--> 00:46:54

to modify the behavior through what cartoons.

00:46:57--> 00:46:59

Your brothers and sisters, we gave you an envelope.

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

That envelope is for you to put inside of it. Whatever you think it's worth,

00:47:07--> 00:47:08

whatever you think it's worth,

00:47:10--> 00:47:17

those envelopes will be collected and use for what we're talking about. This is small, but it's a style.

00:47:19--> 00:47:24

This evening, we will have a more deep discussion about this subject.

00:47:26--> 00:47:30

We talk about the WHO THE What the Why the when the how and the web.

00:47:32--> 00:47:32

We invite you to come

00:47:34--> 00:47:37

so you can hear more evidence.

00:47:39--> 00:47:42

You can look deeply into the subject.

00:47:43--> 00:47:59

And then you and I wherever we are, we can begin to think and we can begin to invest and we can begin to collaborate together to develop a multimedia infrastructure for the Muslims in the Western world.

00:48:00--> 00:48:40

When we do that, our friends, our non Muslim friends, our non Muslim neighbors, our non Muslim colleagues, our non Muslim country men, our fellow citizens, some of what we produce, they will see and they will listen and some of them if they don't accept Islam, they will become What do you mean? They will become people who would come our supporters because we have made the investment and the Nusrah will come from Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah has promised whoever make an investment and make an effort. Allah will add more to whatever they have given this our Eman
