Want to say that the salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
After praising Allah subhana wa tada azzawajal
sending salutations upon His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and also sending our respect
upon those who stood
who stood by the Sunnah
by the path of Allah subhanaw taala. And as a consequence, protracted the dour,
up until the present time.
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.
And the best remainder
is remainder from the Sunnah of Rasulullah. He's a lot.
And the worst of all advice is the advice which subverts those two.
We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, that today on Juma
a day which is better than all of the days
that Allah He allows the medicine
which we're delivering in this clinic.
It reaches the hearts and the minds
and causes Muslims
to change their thinking and as a result of changing their thinking,
change their behavior.
And Muslims change their thinking and change their behavior.
The Muslims will change the world.
Today our discussion is about
Some Muslims are thinking
that the message of the Quran and the message of the Sunnah, it is a matter of religion.
And therefore they are reciting the Quran, in the message and in their homes.
But outside in the universities and in their workplaces and in the streets, they're having some other kinds of calamity.
And they are teaching Quran
and Islamic sciences, in the masjid in the madrassas
in their homes
or in their common lives,
in the street,
in the universities, on their jobs, in the workplaces, they are watching
They are really and they are communicating with a totally different calamity.
And it is as if we are living as two different people. In fact, we are living like monastics
we are acting very religious in the mosque.
We are asking the people, what is your delille for this?
What is your delille for that?
What is your evidence? What is your proof, and we are arguing with each other based upon what ideological group that we belong to.
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.
But inside of our homes, we're not talking like that.
And our workplaces and the people that we work for, we're not talking like that.
We're riding on the trains and the buses, we're not acting like that.
This creates a dichotomy in the human mind of separation.
That Muslims are living for two different kinds of collapse.
In the time, Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam.
The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he prepared a group of people whose thinking
was consistent throughout their lives. They did not have a special column for the message, and another column for outside.
There was not living rituals of Islam, no there was living the system and the values of Islam.
As a result of that,
within the 43 years,
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
in the collapse of Jay Hillier.
20 years after that,
they changed three civilizations
from the inside and the outside.
Because they applied the column of the court
and the column of the sooner
in every aspect of their lives.
Muslims are using
their phones, some which they are not able to control, when we're praying even.
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.
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.
But nobody's house here is without a refrigerator. refrigerator.
It is Mr. Harbor, it will preserve your food. But no one was without refrigerator.
No home is without stove.
Although the stove is Mr. habit, it will help facilitate the cooking of your food.
But no one was without it. Or microwave
or bed or table
all the other instruments that you see that we're using and spending
but somehow we are thinking that media
is only something that is optional if we have it Mashallah.
So, let us just
guss core and media and see whether or not it is optional.
First let us first define the word media
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
Rama de Lille alameen the whole world.
it could be the spoken word, it could be the written word or that would just communicate it in an audio or visual format.
In the Oxford Dictionary, it means
the mean the main means of mass communication that is television, cinema, radio, newspapers and now the platforms of social media.
With that general description
we can consider the very first words and phrases of the Quran as what mass media
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
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
even we will pay
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
even though the people don't even know what he's saying.
And in many cases, the man who's reciting he don't even know what he said himself.
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.
You see, the first five is of the Quran. What is it?
How the blaze similarity militia Tanga regime to some layer of manga
in Santa Mini, Allah.
Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah.
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
a revelation of what
divine mass media
he said twice.
Then after that, he mentioned read with the help of
then he mentioned that reading and writing helps the human being to what
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.
Then Allah He said concerning that
the very last Ayat of the Quran, what was it?
Le oma acmella Tula comb dinoco.
See, now Allah telling you he's completed the message
please completed this mass media, this divine column.
So in fact, the word called n itself. What does it mean?
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.
Dear brothers and sisters today 80% of all information and education that comes to us comes to the platforms of mass communication or media.
See what the Quran says.
Allah subhanaw taala elements in the Quran
ellisville Arabic photo
towards what the Seville of your Lord with what hikma when Maui?
sala using words call to the way of your lawn was
beautiful, preaching another form of media
and also respond with beautiful arguments
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
Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran and the surah which is called a net.
I'm starting in disorder called facilite.
called Amanda Illa.
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.
I am from the Muslim in
our province, a lot of them said
call, relate Balu preach, teach deliver.
From me, meaning from my son from my teaching one.
Even one verse, even one statement was
the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam he said in his final,
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.
This is media this is this is media.
The brothers and sisters today.
We need to make a focus effort
to engage and compete in media.
Media is not optional. Media is
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.
And the Muslims in this country, and the Muslims all over the world
are subordinate. We are being penetrated our minds and our hearts are being penetrated. the minds of our children
are being captured.
the hearts of our children are being harnessed, poison routed through media.
You can say whatever you want to say
30 years ago, some of the old guys.
They said the TV is shaitaan
Throw the TV out.
I don't know how many TVs they threw out before they got a big one.
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.
And if you don't have TV in your home
The children know where to go to watch television. And in fact, they don't even watch television anymore.
They have iPads.
smartphones, in the hands of people who are not so smart.
And they are using social media platforms that their mothers and fathers don't even understand.
The mothers and fathers just now caught up to
they don't know what is Facebook.
They don't know what is YouTube. And they definitely don't know what is Twitter.
But your children they know
and they are there.
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.
info. The terminology means using missing information as a tool of warfare panela using this information as a tool of warfare.
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.
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.
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.
You need a tool.
The tools are expensive.
The tools are sophisticated,
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
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.
The non Muslims
are investing heavily in multimedia.
Let me give you an idea
and Facebook and YouTube.
Google right now on the market has a value
of approximately $76 billion.
Facebook went on the market last year, early this year ever, for $100 billion.
Twitter just went on the public market for 25 billion and it just came out three years ago.
And they say in five years Twitter will go past Google and Facebook.
YouTube has received more than
5 trillion hits from around the world in the last 10 years. trillion
So the non Muslims are investing heavily. Viacom the most powerful satellite
composite consortium in the world is controlling 70
4% of all satellite programs in the world
there are presently now over 1871 channels available on the internet today.
Therefore, the Muslims
are way behind.
And the whole world there is approximately 72 Muslim channels, most of them Bali, Bali singing songs,
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,
two channels in
and guess what?
The Dutch government is giving the Muslims and other religions they are paying $500 or 500 euros a minute. They are giving to us
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
we just talking
then when someone insults Muhammad's A lot of us,
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
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.
Dogs cannot wild barking dogs. They cannot affect the full moon
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
responded to those who was cursing the Prophet last name. And the response of Allah was enough.
Those who cursed the Prophet arcims wife,
the response of Allah was enough
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.
And they are spreading vile, filthy misconceptions and purposeful distortions concerning Islam and Muslims.
In fact, some elements of the Western governments and media
they have launched a conspiracy which is titled, info war against Islam, to undermine its growth.
And Allah He said that
Allah He said, The youth will
they will blow with their mouth.
In order to do what try to distinguish
the light of Allah.
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
More than light comes in spite of the Muslims and their weakness and their stinginess.
suppiler just last year 135,000 people into Islam
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.
So between last year and so far this year, close to 250,000 people into Islam
in spite of the Muslims,
dear brothers and sisters,
but most of the Muslim leaders and scholars today have taken one or two positions
either they are intimidated, which forces them to do what apologize
are we Sorry boss? Oh boss, no, we don't mean then.
No, boss, we know God.
No boss, we're good niggas.
Excuse me, we're good Muslims.
Oh, boss. You see we mouth. We solve. We intellectual.
Just boss rappers kickers
say anything about us, we will just whisper
and on the outside, whatever we have to say, we sing it low.
So we don't disturb the boss.
Or the bosses.
Were apologizing to people saying to people that Oh no, you see, Islam is only a peaceful religion.
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.
In the law, you have bola de ukata una feasability saphan kana home banyana, Massoud
Muslim Muslims, most of our scholars,
they have been intimidated by their own governments.
And most of our scholars who live in the West have been intimidated by the power of the West.
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.
Tell them set up the cameras.
Set up the microphones.
And let's talk live.
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.
Who are they? Where are they? Those who read the books, those who give the fatwa, those who give
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
they are doing one or two things. Either they are intimidated or they are apologizing.
The second thing
another group of the Muslim leaders and scholars, they have decided to become radical reactionaries.
Radical reactionaries so they are telling young people isolate yourself from the dunya
Make away from the society.
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.
are they telling them establish a free lever in a place where there is already government so Pamela,
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.
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.
But some Muslims, they want to establish a law firm in London,
in the Netherlands, in America, and they on the welfare.
Muslims is on the welfare,
their children go to public schools. They're women taking from the welfare, the men sitting in coffee shops, smoking, happy, bubbly.
They don't even want to support their own method. But they talking about a lever,
just kurama favi
just empty talk. And some scholars is pushing them pushing them pushing them. We don't know who those guys are.
And those collars, who's pushing them, they have not been able to establish anything in their own country for the last 600 years.
For the last 600 years.
Both of these positions, intimidation and apology, and radical reaction ism, they are an Islamic and they are inappropriate.
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,
first three who
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.
But when we come to talk, those arbitrators make the final word between us, because it's called binding arbitration.
You and I cannot argue.
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.
Our leaders and scholars must reflect deeply, our leaders and scholars must respond appropriately. Our leaders and scholars must respond with dignity.
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
must train ourselves how to use the tools of social media. And you and I we have to be prepared to invest.
Today, Muslim governments are willing to invest in Mega masjids.
I have visited for message,
one that has been built now. And three that has already built the 3ds already built between them, costs 1.4 billion.
Three machines cost 1.4 billion Another one is being built
Which will cost $700 million.
That means a total of $2.1 billion only for for big mega message, which only mostly tourist is going there.
go to the exit prayer to the white mosque in Abu Dhabi,
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
at Vegeta at two domes,
at two domes,
and the treasure time
Muslim governments and Muslim wealthy people. They are investing in Super skyscrapers
in Abu Dhabi.
They are over
576 skyscrapers that are more than 67 storeys high
67 storeys high, over 576 skyscrapers.
And if you go to
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.
In Saudi Arabia,
one very wealthy man
has organization called the kingdom foundation.
He is putting up a building now, which is will be the tallest building in the world.
It's called the Mile High skyscraper. That means from the ground to the top, it is one mile high,
almost touching the clouds.
That building will cost $1.6 billion.
And it's in the desert, literally.
So we're not blaming them.
We're just looking at the issue of Islam.
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.
And those same countries. And those same people, they're not willing to invest in meeting the challenge of modern multi media.
The Muslims around the world, including you and I here today.
They're not willing to invest in media, but they're willing to invest for themselves. Everybody has car,
everybody has home, everybody has rugs.
They're investing for themselves and their families, but they don't want to invest in media.
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.
is that the Muslims
need to set aside a portion of their wealth
and give it to who they believe is trustworthy.
In every place like this
self, if you make 40,000 euros a year,
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.
You should set aside 2000 just for media.
What kind of media would you have? If all the Muslims invest in media?
The Muslims of America, the Muslims of Europe should do the same. Because in America
we have the freedom and we have the wealth to do that.
And lots of Patel is going to ask you
about that which he gave to you.
And I was gonna ask you about what you were working
To invest for his word for his dour
and to address the challenge of the kuffaar who are undermining Islam through the media wakulla Kali had was suffering Lucha de la ku
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
Deborah's, is in Islam, I asked the last panel, that, that I respond to the words which I have given to you.
And ask Allah subhanaw taala, that you will depersonalized what has been said,
that means, take the person away, and ponder on the words.
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.
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.
don't invest in media.
Your children will invest.
Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon, these two companies together,
they invested $36 million only to modify the behavior of your children. So panela 36 million
to modify the behavior through what cartoons.
Your brothers and sisters, we gave you an envelope.
That envelope is for you to put inside of it. Whatever you think it's worth,
whatever you think it's worth,
those envelopes will be collected and use for what we're talking about. This is small, but it's a style.
This evening, we will have a more deep discussion about this subject.
We talk about the WHO THE What the Why the when the how and the web.
We invite you to come
so you can hear more evidence.
You can look deeply into the subject.
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.
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
