in the article Hadees kita lo hadal Howdy, howdy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Sharon Musashi Hakuna Matata
Hakuna Latif. And now
want to say that Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Today, thank you very much about the issue of identity. And I understood when I was writing here, I saw the signs that and your logo, you're striving in the cause of Allah. And this is a very good theme.
But I'm sure that in a esteemed progressive organization, you have had many people talk about your theme, didn't you?
I'm not talking about that today.
What I'm talking about fits inside the theme. But I don't let people set the theme for me.
I talk about what I'm qualified to talk about. I'm talking about what is passionate to me. And I'm talking about what is necessary to heal the body.
Because I'm sure that the people of this organization, check my father and other esteemed people they have over the years. They have saturated you with the theme
about identity. And if the Muslims understood this issue of identity, you would not have the situation which your president is faced with.
His Excellency, Mr. Bahari, I wish and I pray that some way that me as a traveler, as a Muslim, revert, I wish I had the opportunity to serve his mission.
Because I see him as the Lone Ranger.
who has a vision to clean this country, but around him
are those who wish he would get sick and die.
And if the young men and women in this country, if they cannot rally to his vision, your country will be next in line. You see what has happened in Syria. You see what has happened in Iraq. You see what is happening in Yemen. You see what's going to happen in Lebanon. You see what's happening in Egypt, you saw what has happened everywhere. This is because of the dogs of the religion.
You know, religion has religion has dogs around it all the time.
Time, and this religion Islam has its own set of dogs.
And those dogs, they are eating the wealth of the nation.
And as I said in a talk yesterday,
you know, Africa under colonialists, the devils the colonialist devils,
under the colonialists,
the mother of Africa, was raped by the Europeans.
But after 1962, our mother was raped by her own children.
Did you understand that point.
And our mother Africa is still being raped by her own children.
And Mr. Bahari, may Allah bless him, and we Muslims in America, he's one of our heroes.
It has nothing to do with your political parties. This is some foolishness.
He just happens to be in a political party.
But even his party is not worthy of Him.
As I see it, it's my own subjective opinion. And I would not be talking this way, if your constitution was not very close to our Constitution.
Because as I understand it, in America, the most filthy people can talk and get positions, like Donald Trump, assumed to be Trump.
You know, democracy, as a political hypocrisy
allows anybody to come from the toilet to the White House.
And because the
Nigeria is built upon the same type of template, from the Europeans in, in Britain, from the same conspiracy, so we have the same kind of Constitution, which provides us with some constitutional privileges, that other people do not have. And you Nigerians you should understand this point.
And you should not be very negligent. In this constitutional privilege, which you have.
You can talk about anything. Nigerians can go on the radio, and contradict the president, they can go disrespect the governance, they can say anything, because your constitution allow you to do that.
You should not be irresponsible with that privilege. And me, I'm not irresponsible. I don't curse the President of the United States. He's overly cursed by law.
He's the president. So from a constitutional point of view, I must be respectful to the Constitution, even though he doesn't deserve to be where he is. I don't know what happened to my country, they allow a person of that caliber to be in the White House. I'm more afraid for my country than I am for you.
But at least the son of an African slave, meaning the distant son of an African slave, you know, those Europeans, when they stole the Africans from this country, and put them around in different places, and my forefathers, they wind up in America.
They had no idea
that somewhere around the 1950s
that somehow his lamb would come to America.
a man, his name was Alhaji Malik Chavez.
Somehow he was born
in the same circumstances, I was born in the same place I was born
and that he would somehow wind up in Mecca.
And he in Mecca would become a Muslim.
And within three months time after coming from hedge, just three months,
he put a seed in the ground of America.
And me, I'm one of the products of that seed.
So three months, not three years, he was only a Muslim for three months.
He did not study Tafseer he didn't study aqeedah he studied bellezza. He didn't study mostella hat. He didn't study the Sunnah. He studied this Hadees none of that. The only thing he knew was La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah
that's all he knew. Well
I don't believe I met with his sister, his daughter. We made hides together. And I asked her, you were only about three years old when your father was assassinated.
But from your mother, did you know whether your father ever memorized Fatiha?
You know what she told me? She says she has to be very honest.
I don't think my father had the time to memorize more than what he said in Mecca.
That was what? That ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah saw a man who perhaps only knew La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah he planted a seed in America from now there's 2.8 million Muslims.
So you don't have to say much to do much.
I'm suggesting to the Muslims here Nigeria. You need to stop so much bureaucratic qcl talking?
Me I understand it. I understand the Lia
I understand the whole procedure. I understand how we love the core. And I understand how much we love Mohammed Salim Islam. I understand how we love the men Hajj of Islam, I understand that.
But to climb a mountain, you only need the right equipment, you don't need a lot of talking.
And we have a mountain to climb.
And as I'm driving here, these roads should be prepared by us.
Don't blame the government that the roads inside is no good. They stole the money. And that's why you cannot fix your roads.
Today, there is $1.2 trillion of Nigerian money in European banks.
From the people who stole from our mother, the people who raped our mother $1.2 trillion of Nigerian money is in European banks. What about the rest of Africa?
We should be talking about
you know, our father or our of our country. One of my heroes, Mr. Bahari, he is doing his best to get that money back for you.
But somebody will probably poison him or assassinate him.
Before he gets that mail, I'll protect him.
When I listened to him, I'd never hear him reciting a lot of Quran.
Although I understand, and I know he's a very good Muslim.
He's a well trained Muslim.
The fact is the politician is only because that is the only way he can arrive in a position to drive the car. And you know, and I know that for the last 25 years, everybody around him did not want him to drive this car.
me, I don't know. You know, as time has its own clock.
There may not be the opportunity for me to say these things in Nigeria, again.
Because the conspirators, every time they see some light moving, coming.
They want to put it out. The youth feel normal law, the
see every time some light start to come. The Devils they start to talk and plan and conspire. They want to put that light out.
But they ain't gonna put all the lights out.
because Allah subhanho wa Taala UTM uno de Waal, Carrie Hill, Catherine, one machico. One moon ethical.
So me I'm on my own trajectory
permission of Allah.
And I don't like much to be said
about my trajectory.
Because sometimes, when we talk too much about a person's background, we are giving the enemies of Islam too much warning.
Sometimes, if you want to catch a pigeon, you know
pigeon, the pigeon, you're the cast the pigeon, don't run up to him, you will he will fly.
Just throw some food out there
and come very soft, they will come.
If we want to do something for our children,
we need to plan very well. And we need to be very quiet. I know Nigerians, it's very difficult for you to be quiet.
Because it is the nature of the Nigerian to talk very strong.
I cannot change that because me I'm part of you.
But we need to learn how to close the doors
and spend one day planning and one hour talking.
Right now is the opposite.
They plan one hour and they talk all day.
The other thing
Muslim men need to wake up. I didn't get to my talk yet. So if anybody have a problem,
I will get it's only two pages.
So this is my preamble.
You don't mind.
The Muslim men, you need to wake up and smell the coffee.
Time has changed.
If you want four wives, Allah, He gives you that permission, you can do it.
But today, most of the women
whom you want to marry, they have as much knowledge about their rights as you do.
You'll not be able to do it easily.
Our women have an A sense of empowerment, which you did not even give to them.
When Maja animoji noodle replica in level, you know, when a lot he want to you estimate your chef, whenever he want to create some empowerment. He does it in regardless of his servants. And the internet.
You know, if you want to keep a woman under your control, and you don't deserve that, and you don't even have the power to do that, just keep her away from the TV. Keep her away from the internet.
Don't let her use the phone, keep her in the dark. Keep her in the bush
and keep her barefoot and pregnant.
Then you have a chance
to keep some power over her. But if she has TV,
if she has phone
if you have shoes,
and she can walk the same road that you go to, you cannot today have any power like that.
Because now Allah, the most ignorant people today, they understand they have access to understand the world,
the most ignorant people.
And you know, you see panela there's a woman from our country,
a woman from our country.
Her name is
everybody's watching on TV, what's her name?
Oprah you know her.
Oprah, she has more influence in the world, then the Queen of England.
There is no other woman in the world today who have more influence over other women.
Maybe the influence is the bad one. But still she have influenced
this because Allah he did that.
it doesn't matter
what anybody will say,
Mr. Obama, and his wife, Michelle.
They brought more dignity to the White House than it ever had in the history.
A black man and his wife brought more dignity to the White House than it ever had in history.
So this is what can happen. When a law he put an African in a position.
Now, unfortunately, Mr. Obama said he's not a Muslim. I don't know what happened.
I don't know what happened in his life. I don't know what happened in his house. And I don't know even why because his name was not. His name was not Barack Obama when he was born, somewhere along the line.
He chose that name.
But his father was a Muslim.
his stepfather was a Muslim.
And he was raised in Kenya.
And he went to the madrasa
wherever he was living, and he learned the core. And so I don't know what happened.
But that's his problem is not mine.
But what I do know
is that the zebra Allah he did in this century, for us, is to show that an African can be the head of state, and could be the most powerful person in the world, and he could be there with dignity. And he did eight years, no standard,
And his wife was more educated than him.
You know, if he ever divorced, Michelle, I will try to marry her.
If she wears the hijab, you know, if you take Shahada, and wear the hijab, if Oprah, if I ever get the chance to give her that will just be the next one.
If she will take the Shahada, and put on the hijab,
you even if it's only some kind of dream,
what I would want that for only because that the influence which they have would now become a part of Islam, nothing else, nothing else.
Because in sort of number of sorts of
you know, the surah when when Allah subhanho wa Taala calls Sulaiman Allah Islam to learn about Bill keys Melaka Melaka Saba. So to Nan
suta number, yes. And by the way, if anybody wants to know why one of the soldiers of the Quran do not have Bismillahirrahmanirrahim
You know, one sword I have no Bismillah R Rahman Rahim because that Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, this test Mia is insulted number is correct.
So there is 114 tests we had in the Quran.
So this one that he said when he wrote the letter to Bill case, and he told her, come to me, In the name of Allah, Who is the Beneficent, the Merciful.
So this shows that it's sometimes it's very important that the man who has power that he select the right woman,
or that the right woman select him in the case of Mohammed Salah.
So our women, today I
have a very unique, ironic position.
And we men,
we should learn to become secure in our thinking. Because as long as you're insecure, you're going to mistreat your wives.
long as you are insecure, you will never allow them to rise to their potential
because you will be afraid of them shining more than you.
You don't want them to talk because they can talk better than you.
You want to you want to push down their aspirations because you don't have aspirations.
You are afraid of them having money and power and influence you are afraid because you yourself cannot contain it.
But if you believe men are secure, if we are progressive, secure, if we have a plan, and we also we want to have wealth to give to them.
Then we will facilitate their aspirations because today
Today is the age of the woman and the child.
This is not the age of the men today.
We still are rajakumar Mona Lisa, you know the is still is like it is a rajakumar Mona Lisa but the word is rejected.
The word reserved don't mean male.
Don't mean ma l e.
Original means men.
empowered in doubt, capable, responsible, accountable men rajakumar Mona Lisa, but today, it almost reverse.
Allah. No, we don't, we don't reverse the area. But I'm just saying what have happened.
Now to be honest, we need to sit down with our wives, and our daughters, and to be very honest, and we need to be grateful for them, and have good conversations to balance out the family.
Because when men are honest with the women,
then the family dynamics will change. And when the family dynamics change, the community dynamics will change. When the community dynamics change, then the social dynamics will change. And law II don't change the condition of people until they what
their hearts means their thinking, and their feeling.
So let our honesty start at home.
Let us begin to have genuine conversations with our daughters and our wives. So they become our friends more so than wife.
And why I talk about Queen Amina, because more than anything else, she's happy to have the Quran
hamdulillah and her sister who live with us is happy to have the Quran.
But more than that, she's my friend.
And when your wife is your friend,
you even can differ about issues, you can argue about issues, but you will never harm your friend.
So inside your family, look for friendship
with your children, look for friendship.
Because when friendship is present inside the house, the honor is there. The loyalty is there.
Problems are there. But you know, if I have an argument with my friend, even five years ago, when I see my friend again how I feel, I forgive them right. But when there's no friendship,
you always remember that Hitler, you carry the Hitler all the time.
So we should ask a loss of power to Allah to heal our situations inside of our families.
Because if there is bad relationship and bad chemistry between the male and the female, it passes right down to the children.
And this is the another issue I'm coming to. We have children who are angry.
The young man who recited the quarter and hear me
his core and is beautiful. But what I'm concerned about
where he will be 10 years from now.
Because when the reality of life comes to him as a man,
I wish I had a whiteboard here, I can tell you what I'm saying.
When the reality comes to him as a man,
I want you to if you can, right now, before I go into this issue of social responsibility, my topic is social responsibility, which has to do with identity.
I want you to just if you can close your eyes and imagine
going down a tunnel
or going down the road
going down or channel going down the road, please. If you are you have phones, I would prefer you not to film.
And the reason it's technical is professional and ethical.
So please trust me as my son's that
it is not a good thing to do.
Imagine going down the road
and you come to a T junction you know what that is right? T junction.
You can only go What? Left or Right.
So as a social scientists,
me I figured it out.
I figured it out for me. I figured it out for my children. I figured it out for my grandchildren. And I figured it out for when I talk to young people I already know what's gonna happen.
They're going down this T junction. They're going down this road headed for what?
The T junction
and by default they have to go What? Left or Right. Well, as they headed down this road was the parents gave them
Maybe they are equipped with CT and maybe not. Maybe they have academic education, maybe not. But for sure, they are angry.
They are frustrated.
They are confused.
Because that's the nature of a dysfunctional society.
What are the three things they are?
They are angry, even if they don't show it, they are angry. They are what? They are confused.
And they are what? They're frustrated. And if they wind up going to some Islamic school, in Medina, or in Riyadh, or Mecca, or in India, or in Sokoto, or wherever they're going, they're going somewhere to memorize more called en Hadees Arabic language, and all this is good.
You know, it's all good. No one can argue about that. It is good. But the problem is,
supplements are only taken because you're not eating the right food, right?
Is the correct.
So if you're eating the right food, you already have a balanced diet, then you don't need supplements.
But if you eating a diet, which itself is too much protein,
too much starch, too much sugar. You see, you eat in your diet too much. Then at the end, you become either
it starts to show up in your demeanor, right.
So our children, what we see happening, and I will use Nigeria as an example, because we are here.
Boko Haram is what was a natural was a natural outcome. Because cancer inside the body is going to manifest itself somewhere.
It's right or wrong. And some enemies of Islam will help to facilitate that cancer.
And Boko Haram came about as a result of a cancer inside the body.
And some outside facilitators and conspirators, they facilitated it. And some of the people raping the mother,
Christians and Muslims, they also facilitated it. Because as long as somebody has to fight that cancer, they don't pay attention to people who are stealing.
You understand me?
So some of our children, they came to that T junction.
And they went left.
They were already what
they've already What?
So when I hit that T junction, they were not educated. Because it was just educated. They don't go to the left.
The ones that come from good families, strong families, stable families, educated families, well endowed Muslim families, they don't go to the left. We'll talk about those who go to the right after this.
Because they're already angry and frustrated. They go to the left.
And they wind up these young boys you see out in the street
at nighttime, robbing, stealing,
doing all kinds of crazy stuff, kidnapping people and all of that debt. We're not just talking about Muslims. Now we're talking about what Nigerians right. They hit the junction and they were left at the far end of the junction. They want Boko Haram or some other haram
those are the ones that were radicalized to an extreme.
But what about those that never got to that pot? They're the ones who's robbing people. And you know, something's upon a lot and notice here in Nigeria, that even the most wealthy people is still inside the prison.
Every house in Nigeria has barbed wire
has bars on the windows. This is how you can tell something about a society. This is a school,
and enter a community compound. But you have bars on all the windows, barbed wire on all the walls, and every door must have its own gates and locks
And somebody must be outside to watch, look, just for you to get inside the compound. Then inside the house, somebody else looking that means everybody in Nigeria is inside of a prison.
See, because the mother has been traumatized, from the raping, and the robbing. And so the psychology of the mother has come down into all the children. And so everybody the rich and the poor is all what traumatized.
So let's continue my discussion.
So this, Boko Haram
was facilitated by people from the outside world law, he, if anybody will track it, they're not even Muslims.
When they are captured, they don't even know how to pray.
They don't recite the call. And
they're just criminals using the name of Islam.
Taliban same, ISIS same came from the same what three things.
So that's the far end of the spectrum.
That's the that's the that's, that's the, that's the left. Now let's go to the right.
Going to the right is young man who just decided to call and here, he will go to the right for sure. You should know for sure. He's already that way.
Most of the educated Nigerians whether they are Christians, or Muslims, they're going to go where they're going to go to the right.
But as they go to the right, they are also internally what.
So they're going to take out their anger and their frustration in different ways.
They will become, first they will become compromised by their own individual ambition.
They will want to go to school for what to serve the country or to serve themselves.
And their parents want them to go graduate, why to do something for the country, or to do something for the family, right. So first, they will become indulgent,
they will become selfish,
then they will become individualistic.
And that at the further end of the extreme, they will join others to have as much as they can
you see what I'm saying? So here you got two different extremes. Both of them do not serve the interests of their country.
So how do we change that?
The way you have to change it, you must open up that junction.
So they have a way to pass through.
We need to open up this funnel
so that our young people who are already angry, confused, frustrated, because of the trauma that they have witnessed.
With their mothers, we don't mean their physical mother, we mean, Africa.
It's okay. It's okay. It's okay brothers, just whoever will come this my suggestion. My suggestion is, whoever comes late,
regardless of what the reason is,
they have to stand
that's just the rule.
Whoever comes early is the ones get the seat.
Those who come late
they have to stand May Allah reward them for their standing
they will only be standing maybe 30 minutes 45 minutes on your new camera, maybe we stand in for a few years.
So, let us continue without any distraction, because this is what
So we need to create a funnel to go through
and we is described in the course and as the middle path.
So they can continue their ambition, their training in a more mature state of mind. But under some discipline and under some control because we are assisting
created the opening, you know, this is called analog says woman. Yeah, tequila Yahoo. Maharajan well, Yasuko, man hierzu.
Woman, Allah for hospital, see, so we need to make this massage for them and for us.
And this massage, it is called social responsibility.
Without social responsibility, we cannot ourselves create the massage.
Or we cannot ourselves
take advantage. We can't even see it. Because if there's a mountain, and we need to go on the other side of that mountain, either we got to drive 150 miles all the way around the mountain, or we need to do what we need to make a tunnel through that mountain. Is that correct? saves time and energy
and resources is correct.
So what I'm talking about here today
is digging a tunnel through this mountain of trauma.
Now this discussion I'm having with you today is the result of my trajectory.
I spent a year in Madina munawwara I take a lot for that I got some chance to pray, you know, and to live, you know, in Madina munawwara I get a chance, but I didn't finish nothing. Because I was also at that time what
angry, frustrated and confused. And every day. Me I'm, I'm fighting with the police
alone, no Saudi policemen to grab on me like he do Africans.
You know, the Saudis.
They have some mentality about Africans, the Arabs, they have some mentality about Africans, it comes to a historical set of dynamics, that they see themselves to be superior, and they see Africans to be a bead. And me as a African American, they saw me black. But once they look in my eyes, they realize I wasn't the same kind of African.
And this is what you need to understand now.
Allah is bringing two oceans together.
Because when we look at the white man, when we deal with the Arabs, we see them eyeball to eyeball.
Time has changed.
There's a young man, I was talking to the driver, brother up the road shut up the result. There's a young man a young African, his name is a con all the young boys know him. How many here know a con?
Yeah, you know, a con. I know until all my kids know.
This is why for me, I'm a chef. I'm an old man. But when I'm with the young kids, I'm with them completely.
I'm not gonna get into what I mean by that. Because that's not your business. But what I want to tell you is that between me and my grandchildren, there is no, there's no gaps.
We all friends.
I'm working with them, talking with them, dealing with them, understanding their whole set of dynamics. I'm kicking it with them. You know, they call me Oh, gee.
Because I'm not pretending to be pious. I'm not bringing them some culture from the atoms, or the Africans or the Asians. I'm keeping it real. You know, the kids say, you know what they say, right? Keep it real.
So having said that,
this young man, a con.
He was he came from Africa, came to America to be a rapper.
A bling bling monkey.
That's what I call him. A bling bling monkey. But now Jay Z
is one of the top bling bling monkeys in the world could train him and his wife. They almost got three quarters of a billion dollars.
But they still blame blame.
But see what a lot did for this young man a con.
He He's a Muslim.
And he went to America and became wealthy.
And he also went to America and he realized America
A land where dreams come true.
And he decided he wants to come back to his country and do something for his country.
or his not even his country. He wants to come back and do something for Africa.
And what did I just read it in the news yesterday? He just struck a $10 billion deal with the Chinese. Can you imagine it?
To build 80 million to give 80 million Africans electricity?
Can you believe that your whole government cannot keep the lights on?
Although you have the largest population in Africa,
your GDP is larger than any other country in Africa. But because of the stealing and the corruption, which your president is trying to correct, you can't even keep the lights on
for the last cent an African boy to America. And he came back and put together a plan. And what got the chat Japanese involved, I mean, the Chinese because Chinese always want to be involved, if they can do further exploitation, not exploration, but exploitation. So that's a different story.
So guess what, suppose there was 100 young Africans who had the same ambition as this young boy, what would happen?
Well, we've got 1000 young Africans who have that potential right now.
And this program that we are trying to develop in 2018, the three by 2020, we want to inspire, we want to motivate, and we want to harness 1000 young Africans, male or female, to do what this young boy icon just did.
Now, I'm not concerned about how much court and they have. Now let check, move Avila are that him and other shoe you take care that part?
I'm not concerned even so much about their graduate studies. Because there are enough universities in the world that can take care of that. But what I'm concerned about is the mindset.
The discipline, that creates the mindset, because if we are able to give our children male and female, the mindset
and we give that to 1000 of them, then guess what? Those 1000 young people, they themselves will influence another 1000. And those 2000 will influence another 2000. And maybe by the year 2030.
Africa will be a different continent.
And the keys that the Europeans stole from us, and hit in the ground. Even after they left back to their countries, they stole the keys.
So if you don't find you don't have to change the old house.
So what you can do,
there are three Europeans stole the keys. The Europeans shared the keys with Japanese, Koreans and Chinese.
So now all the railroads, all the ship ports, all the all the big projects is being fostered by who Chinese
and all the phones, everybody who got a phone or two
So between the keys that they stole, and hid from us, and then shared with others, the exploitation continues.
What I want to do, I want to set up a movement. I want to set a spark
a movement to get our cheese back.
Because once we got our keys back, we can change the locks
and then all the exploiters
when they come to try to put their keys inside, guess what? It don't work. We can tell them. It's a new day.
And 30% of the natural resources of the world is inside the ground of our mother
and as much
As they have raped us, exploiting us, and whatever they have done, Africa has more to give.
We don't need to worry about even the money that's in the banks.
We don't need to even worry about who stole this and who stole that. Africa has enough resources to give more and more. This is what Allah he did that well, Yasuko manga shall
be ready, he said.
So we need to be on a trajectory
to take advantage of this massage. So that we can build a mindset of social responsibility. So now my preamble is over. Can I do my lecture now? It's okay. Good.
So social responsibility is the disciplined and ethical principles which every citizen and every individual within a given society should cultivate, in order to build and guaranteed constitutional privilege for everyone.
The duty that every citizen has towards their government, and society. So I'm gonna give just a few verses of the Quran, a couple of Hadith from Mohammed Salah Sam. So we understand that, that we on the same page, there's no dichotomy
between the definition
and what Islam says. So first,
Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, and we hear this every Juma in the La Jolla, San Juan he titled corba, while young Han and
Allah come to the Quran, we hear this right you know, the idea with surah comes in.
Sea. So tonight
we need to review the idea. Because in the end, the ritualistic in the ritualistic mindset, when you hear the idea, you start standing up, because that means that your man was getting ready to leave you get ready to pray. Right.
So you already been programmed, that when you hear the idea, not even thinking about the meaning. You've been programmed already that when you hear the idea, it's time to pray. Although the prophet SAW Sam said, and the companions they said, We never stood for the prayer until the Martin said, cut armor to Salah.
The Companions what they say, we never stood for the prayer until we heard them other than say What? But
that's the order. But armor to solid. That's the order. But we got this mindset that we got from other people. You know that when the Imam says in the law, everybody starts standing. That means you're not listening. And law says when you hear the code and do what?
You must listen, keep quiet, don't move. Now reflect on the ayah wehrli of law in the law, definitely a law, your Moodle.
Allah has commanded you upon justice.
What kind of justice, social justice? Well,
benevolence? benevolence comes from worldly people.
The Netherlands comes from people who are endowed and wealthy and they give for the sake of Allah to improve the society. So law commanders upon two things, right? What was the two things justice you cannot be just if you ain't got no power.
You cannot be benevolent if you don't have no money. So here the idea is already being directed to people who already have what power and money.
Then another law says what I see here is his hidden word comes again. When I see new in the law,
hear the word comes again. So be benevolent. Very law loves those who are benevolent. When he's talking to the NBA, they have a little different meaning because the NBA there was already built, they already had built in benevolence. They had built in independence. They had built in character, right? So for them when the law calls them masini it means that they was already programmed with that through the way but for us who's not programmed with the way he was telling us to do what
we're asked to do in the law.
Then Allah says in the Quran, another verse, very important verse, water he FEMA attack Allahu Daro Akira wala tenza nasi buka
Dunya will ask you can ask Allah who he Lake let you know in the law. The Quran is telling us this, but we're not listening to Deb Barun Quran
female attack log double accurate. So law is telling us yes take the path of preserving the rituals, preserving the the car, the car and the sooner you know the things that's going to take you to the academic to build your character, Willa tansa new snazzy bokeh, but do not forget this is an order allows reminding you on the way to getting the religion Do not forget your portion of the dunya and what portion is that? What is that portion? That is your social responsibility.
So now we are looking at the quarter end with a different eye.
And if it takes a revert to Islam, to look at the quarter end with a different eye, then let us look at the end today.
Do not forget?
Because what are we talking about? Keep it in mind we're talking about building the massage. Right? Taking that path, opening up that T junction to go through so that our children don't have to go to the left or to the right
CLR says well to come.
So you Muslims, you have been what you are the people calling to the higher
what is the higher
the higher they have been said before
in the law
they're saying this the higher
then actually ISS yacht Marina Del Mar roof
Mancha so here's the principle is what build the build before you build the highway you must build what the side roads to keep them on the road.
You don't let the cars on the highway before you put up the what the barriers This is your
mooncup that means that if you're not able to set up the means by which to punish people who do wrong, and to stop people from doing the wrong and to cause goodness to flow into society with some kind of discipline, then the society become wild and unmanageable. Let's go to another quantum Hydra.
See the first what's the word quantum what Hydra what's the Hydra complexity is go back to the other is where the word higher was over to us. Okay where the word you're assuming the law
where it was already used. So now you know the word higher what it means. So quantum higher now he's naming us on mutton This means the whole group of Muslims right off region What this means is that you know it comes from the verb Raja johari do this correction
means it has happened.
It has happened quantum Hydra
region, you have already been formed. You've already been taken from the bottom to the top as an oma presenting the higher for the whole world.
And how you're going to do it.
What took me noon to be led.
Then the promise I'll say he said early I had been sent to perfect good What?
So that means the court and the ASPCA, the Hades, the sooner the the aqeedah all of these things is really to do what to build what good character?
Then the professor Sam said.
He says it tequila hifu mcent What b i say? Yeah, Bill hacer una Chang Hua wahabis can NASS beholdeth in Hassanein, okay. We don't need to go no more code. And so now we got enough, right. You know, I gave you a whole bunch of medicine. So the doctor write a bunch of prescription for you. Now go home and take them right. So now let's talk about how you need to take this medicine.
The points regarding social responsibility, because I gave you those ideas of Qur'an and those few bodies, too as evidence because you know, Ali
The Avatar, you know, early,
you know early in avatar rajala, when he said, Hyrule map Allah, wa Jalla. La Jolla. That means you don't have to say much to do much.
Number one, the first point regarding social responsibility.
Of course, it is important to build a consistent, disciplined practice of Islamic rituals, Daniela sama Hansen.
However, it is equally important to develop the skills and the resources that lead to social and personal empowerment. Now, that's the core statement of my talk today.
And if you don't get that part, the rest of it doesn't matter.
So I'm gonna read it again.
Of course, it is important to build a consistent and disciplined practice of the Islamic rituals. However, it is equally important to develop the skills and the resources that lead to social and personal empowerment.
Everybody got that part?
through personal and social empowerment, Muslims, you and I can gain tremendous social leverage.
Because the people in the society today that have the greatest social leverage is Apple and Samsung. Who
What if I say to you, I got some free phones outside for everybody.
Right away what phones you hoping I got
iPhone Samsung, right?
Because we've been programmed that way.
And it's not just us.
It is not just us.
Today, Islamic in China.
Europeans, educated you Europeans are sleeping in the streets of Denmark, sleeping in the streets of Switzerland, sleeping in the streets of London, waiting for iPhone office to open up so they get the new iPhone eight. They're sleeping in the streets right now.
Only because iPhone and Samsung put it in people's minds that if you have our phone, even if you don't have no data.
Even if you can't make no phone call, you still got status.
So what are people buying?
status? I just came from Liberia.
And I noticed that all the libraries it's a very poor country.
If anybody has raped a city or country go to Liberia and see
public pathetic, but Africa is coming back.
Young kids in Liberia
they don't have a bicycle.
Some of them don't even have shoes.
Put together iPhone.
Got a Samsung Samsung edge.
They live in shacks.
They love Islam.
They want to shake, shake.
Wait a minute, how you guys buy an $800 phone? Well, you get the money.
But everybody got the phone.
Most of them they don't have no data.
And most of them cannot make any phone call.
Just they use it for status
and taking pictures. That's it.
Apple and Samsung have programmed the minds of the people so that the people they don't care if they don't have food.
If they don't have a house, if they're sleeping in the dark.
They want to make sure they phone us and everybody put the phone right there.
So actually look inside my bag right there. Get my other phone. I want to digress just for a moment just let you know that a con is not by himself.
And I'm not just like some guy talking
I went to China myself.
And some people were saying I was giving a talk like this and I'm saying why we don't have our own phone? what's what's wrong with us? Why we don't have our own phone?
What we can't we're not smart enough to have our own phone
that people start saying Come on share. Share your share.
You know, that was that means
you religious guy. You need to just stop talking about all that stuff.
Leaving my children they said to me one day
you know, my grown to Jedi. I heard you talking about your phone or something. You go get a phone.
So I went to China and brothers sisters look on my way here. I broke my phone. But I just brought it I just bought another phone, which is exactly like the sky phone.
This phone here is the LG It's the exact prototype of the sky phone. And you can go to the internet. Go to our go to the internet. You can see the sky phone just go there right now if you want to call sky devices go there. Sky devices.
That's our phone.
Sky, the initials Shakeology, I see.
I don't care about the Shakeology or seen pod. We just call it sky phone just to have it so people's like iPhone is my phone. You don't say no it's not the iPhone is my phone is the sky phone.
So just to tell you, it's just like the CLG
it does everything. I cut it off and on using my finger. You see, I can do like this here. It takes my pulse.
I can do like this here cut it off with my Iris.
I can also cut it on and off with my voice.
I got 312 different applications on here that does everything if I want the phone to dance and sing and do that, too.
So what does this phone do? That the iPhone or the Samson does? What does this phone doesn't do? Well, the phone does some things that the iPhone and the Samsung doesn't do. But guess what? Because you've been programmed, you will pay $800 for the iPhone or for the Samsung when this phone here only costs $229.
So and you don't have to wait for the scaffolding to come it's okay. It'll be here soon inshallah. But there's a there's a there's some people that Ogun state ogen there's another state in the south right?
Southwest or something like that Southwest.
Southwest. A brother, a journalist told me, a journalist told me yesterday chef, we're not really south, we kind of like West, that's okay. But you know, they call it in the south.
They have a company here called every one
is the first African company to bring the parts from China and put the phone together in Africa, say Allahu Akbar.
So, however, the phone that they're putting together is more like the tech No,
more like the Alcatel. It's not like the LG It is not like the sky phone. So go to Sky phone devices that come later on. And you will see all the phones that we have.
So having said that,
it is our social responsibility
to create personal and social empowerment. Muslims can gain immense leverage, human humanitarian capability, and industrial advantage through social and personal empowerment. And this is the most advantageous platform to advance the Islamic ideology. Thank you.
It is therefore our social responsibility to develop a sophisticated platform for the Islamic world. One that is attractive, dynamic and endowed one that is what
with the technology, which the young educated Muslims they want, and they use because if your platform does not subscribe to the young people,
It is extremely important that we balance our rituals with education. When we say education, we don't mean High School. And we don't mean undergraduate when we say education. We want to tell our children if you're going to be anything
educated, go all the way.
Make your near to do a PhD
doesn't mean waiting to get a job, because we're telling them, get a job. Do your own business now. So if you do your own business now your time belongs to you, right? And you can continue to study until you get your What do you get your PhD. And in case you're not academically inclined, because all of our children are not,
don't worry, get a technical certificate,
learn technology, engineering, anything, you can do a business certificate program, so that you can be in business for yourselves, while you are also doing your part time education until you get your undergraduate, your graduate and your postgraduate studies.
in addition to that,
study your Islam and be serious about it.
Get your education, but you must also have a life plan. Now, some of you sitting here may be saying to yourself, come on check. I got a life plan. What are you talking about? Okay, so we're gonna test it.
A life plan is something that you researched.
You wrote it,
you typed it, double spaced it spell checked it, printed it out, and you brought it to your chef, or your mom or your dad or somebody that you respect, and you ask them to look at it. And then after you took it back, you, you you, you print it out again, you memorize it for yourself, because whose plan is this
is your life plan. So now how many people here have a life plan?
You see, this is the situation, life plan as I defined it. If you don't have a life plan, when you leave out of here today, one of the first things you need to do is you need to develop a life plan. And case you don't know how to do that.
scat purpose comm send me an email, send me an email. So you say can you send me a template for the life plan, boom, hit the button is gone. It's in your desk right there. Now it's up to you to do it.
teaching our children religious principles and sciences
to help them to be moral and decent is good and necessary. But that by itself will not give them any advantage in the industrial complex of the world. Did you hear what I said?
So, our collective narrative is La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah our Akita, our men hedge, our knowledge, I will show you, our teachers, you know, all the things this is our creed.
But the other things I'm teaching you here has to do with social stability, as opposed to social dysfunction.
And also structural responsibility, as opposed to personal and social irresponsibility.
And economic empowerment means getting hold of money and resources, and that's part of the dean.
The professor Sam's grandfather was what
Abdulmutallab, he was what
you read the Syrah. He was a businessman. His Son, Abu Talib, although he never became a Muslim was what a businessman, Mohammed saw Sam.
Although he was destined to receive the why he, under his uncle, he became a white businessman. And while he was doing that business,
he was working for a lady. Her name was Khadija bit
who later became his wife, right? And she was a
and then Ali, the first male to accept Islam, the free male
was the son of Abu Talib, a businessman. The first man free man to accept Islam was who? Abu Bakar and he was a businessman. And next after that,
Omar, a businessman whose man, a businessman, and when he went to Medina, Abdul Rahman,
a businessman, the man who gave the problem Sam a garden. That is now part
Mr. neverwet, his name was Tara ha, he was also a businessman. So we see Business, Business, Business, Business, Business, money, money, money.
And if you want to Honey, you need to have some money. This is our religion.
If you want to pay the cat, you have to have what? If you want to fast, you should have your own money to buy your own dates. If you want to make hij you have to have money, money, money. And if Allah subhanaw taala told us to pay the care and to fast and to make Hajj. That means he wants us to have money. Because if you don't have no money, you can't do that. You don't have no money. You can't build no Masjid and no schools. Right? So money is a part of our religion. We don't have to be like, shy to talk about it. We're not no pious beggars, to process them said, you know, he said
A movie No. kawi hyaluron wahaca illa la mina movement of days. He said, yo, Ola. Hi, Ron. Yeah, Joseph, LA.
All these things show us where we need to be headed.
It is our constitutional is our constitutional right. And our constitutional privilege that allows us to dissent, to disagree, and to determine what leadership or influence we prefer for ourselves and our families. But guess what, if you don't have any influence in the society, constitutional privilege, means nothing. We have no impediment to preach or teach Islam in this country because
of constitutional privilege. churches, synagogues and temples and masjids are exempt from taxes and government control in order to facilitate them to deliver independent Human Services, community development, and make Community Investment. Some religious entities in the USA and here have more power and influence than many countries in the United States, Microsoft, Microsoft,
as a company has more power, then 39 countries in the United Nations.
Islam our life system has prepared us for this social challenge.
To build our resilience and insulate ourselves against the moral decay and deviants of the greatest society, we must implement and advocate the principles of honorable maruf. We're not here to munkar and that will act as a repellent for us in our social struggle. Allah has promised us many things.
And I want you to remember that he says, Maja tequila Allahu mclogan Yasuko
Amaya tawakkol Allah for Hua hospital.
We are privileged to be Muslims in this time, in this age, in the society where we are, and in my society where I came from, we are privileged to be Muslims. And we are under a very powerful and exceptional time and set of circumstances.
We simply have to make the right assessment and the proper decisions in order for us to reach a position in our society for social responsibility. Thank you very much. We allow bless all of you Makuhari Heather was Dr. lalibela Khun mela swans, Allah bless demetrious assura May Allah Allah bless our our MC check mufaddal May Allah tala bless all the people who are supporting this institution, man last month Allah bless the men and bless the women and bless our children and bless your community.
