in a circle, Hades Cavalia.
Well, Hayden had he had the Mohammed and some Maharaja, he will move
data to data
analysis and now
you will have to say that
we thank Allah subhanaw taala for the opportunity to share
and to give our
while our naseeha
and to share our ideas
and to interact with each other
for purposes of education and inspiration.
And what I would like to speak about
is our vision for the future.
And this could be a question or this could be a statement
for those who don't have a vision for the future it's a question
for those who have
written and thought about this then it is a statement
but for Muslim who doesn't even bring it as a question, and for Muslim who has not even thought about it or written about it as a statement, then this is a very unfortunate circle circumstance for that kind of Muslim
because the last part of what Allah mentioned in the Quran
Allah Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim
Yeah, you are Latina m n o de la
Walton tanzu n'est pas de la vida.
in the LA hobby room the match as

know and Zelda has Quran Allah jabber
La La right? I'm Sandy I'm in Kashi Attila what till killed em falou naza reboot. NASS, la la la,

very powerful, a a
very critical a a.
This is one of the ads which Allah subhanho wa Taala
is given to the Muslims while they are engaged in jihad,
while they were engaged in building the community, while they were engaged in developing the Brotherhood, while they were engaged in the dour
while they were engaged in developing their vision, when they were moving out.
These This is the is and we call this this is an area of Israel. Is
this an idea of empowerment.
This is an idea of enlightenment.
This is an area of inspiration. This the idea these kinds of is filled the hearts these the areas that filled the minds. These there is that push the believers. So I want to just reflect on this for a moment. Now I want to be clear with you.
I don't have any jazz
qualifications to give Tafseer of the Quran I don't in fact hamdulillah
I had the chance to listen
to some people as they commented
on some of the is of the Quran from some of the major mufa city.
And so I will share with you what I understood from them.
And if there's someone who is more classic scholar in the field,
and he said to you, that's not the exact meaning then you can take from him.
Allah subhanaw taala said
yeah, you Valentina Amano. He begins by addressing who who's addressing
we say the believers right. But actually a man who is not just believer.
Because you see believer is like what we call an abstract word.
Who is a believer?
How you know, someone is believing, you can see belief coming out of his heart, you can see believe coming from his mouth. You can see Believe me written on his chest, how you know, somebody is believing. You have to smell, taste, touch, hear, see the actions see the imprint, understand the author of his behavior, the evidence This way you can do it, but who really knows who's believe it? Who knows for sure who's a believer, only allies correct or not? Hmm, so this word, when the law says yeah, you are Dina am and it does not just oh, you believe?
Because Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, before the revelation came? Before the word he came?
He was known by a name based on his character, what was that name?
I mean, is correct.
I mean, does that mean the believer
is from the same verb, right?
Right. I mean, from what
am Anna is correct. From the same verb, that means his name was Allah mean? The believer. They were mean Allah mean,
the one who have the high character,
the one whose behavior is well respected. I mean, this means a man who's well respected, his behavior, his ashlock is well known to the people so much so that they give him that title, among others, Mazel Ameen. So, now here, what is one of the meanings now of Aminu?
The person who has a manner and what does America mean? Does it mean belief?
No, Amana means the one who keeps the covenant, the one who holds the trust, the trust and the covenant with Allah, the trust and the covenant with his messengers allows him the trust and the covenant with his family, his neighbors and the people, the person of the trust and the covenant. So when our law says yeah, you would have been an AMA know what it means now. Are you What
are you believe? But who manifest their belief through the preservation of their What?
The Covenant? See now. So now this make when you say, Oh, you who believe.
Now if you see a Muslim, he's lying. He's cheating. He's stealing, he deceiving. He's living off the welfare. He's just he disrespecting his wife and his children. He's chewing or drinking alcohol or using drugs or selling drugs or he's acting like a monkey or installing so now as he believes now we say he's Muslim, but allow him about his belief is right or wrong. As right or wrong
way he's Muslim we never say is that a Muslim? But Allah knows just about his belief is right or wrong. Okay, so now Yeah, you will have the the AMA knew now it's shrink down.
those who keep the covenant First, the first covenant is the covenant of the Quran and the Sunnah. So those whose aqidah is not consistent with the prophets last name, two companions and the Tabby ang This means they lost the Akita is right or wrong
is right or wrong? Because our Cheetah it has to be based upon the Akita of the self.
I don't say I'm selfie.
If anybody wants to call herself selfie, I don't care. So right is the
Good name is among all the names good name.
But I say, asked a lot to count me among those who follow him. The Atlas sellers.
If I'm counted among the people who's following the Atlas sellers, the three generations, then this enough for me, I ain't gonna wear a selfie on my hat, or my clothes, or this or that, or my name, or my group, or my Masjid or my this because maybe that group or that mask, or that shirt, or that group, maybe they will not be counted among those people on the Day of Judgment is right or wrong.
So, we want to be counted among the people of the sun.
Because their aqidah their belief, their doctrine was correct.
And therefore, we want to be counted among that covenant. The covenant of those who when they was asked a question, they say, Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah wa rasuluh. Adam,
those who, who Allah described
what he said to you a lot, well, I think we're all human.
We want to be counted among those people. And we want our behavior to be reflective of those people.
And we want our behavior, our character, our covenant, our words, our belief, our Eman we want all of that to be consistent with the Quran and the Sunnah. Why, because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, let me know I had to come Hata yaku Hawa who chavan, lemon,
none of you can be a true believer until you bring your house
into accordance or into conformance or into compliance with what I have brought, what did he bring core and sooner. So, what is the Hawaii the Hawaiian mean desire? Hawaii means idea. However, means influence, however means your opinion. So your opinion your desire, your influence your idea, you see, you're into conformance or compliance with what I have brought, how we bring the analogy of that this water this in this bottle, do it have its own nature?
I asked you know I don't. So, the water take the shape of what
this means that the water can fly was what the shape of what. So now when I pour the water in this cup here
now the water take the shape of what the cup is right. So this is the same is
the Muslim, however, should take the shape of the Quran and the Sunnah.
His house should not take the shape of his culture,
his house should not take the shape of his tribe,
his house you know take the shape of his idea or the shower of his group of his of his chef or this or that no The house is not accepted. And he would not become a believer until his However, his desire, his idea, his feeling his opinion is in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah, because it's what the prophet SAW them brought this correct or not.
So he said so a lot of them none of you can be a true believer until your house is in compliance with what I have brought
Quran and Sunnah.
The second point
is the point called unity and community. If anyone understands the English language,
or the Arabic language, there's something very powerful about the word community and community in English and Arabic. So first and out of it we take it
in Arabic the word unity is it he had
it he had from boasberg
from the verb,
a header means what? One
see one It means actually unity. One don't mean units equals one is why why had
I had two different kinds. See, what is the number but I had
That is the concept
we say toe hate right?
We say hula hoop not word that word, hula hoop.
So, I had mean something different from what
so it had is from the concept of unity
and the word community in Arabic is jam Ma,
which is something different from just unity, a group of people can have unity upon some idea, approvable people can have eulogy upon their ethnicity upon their culture or for business or for this or for that, but this is not the same meaning of Gema
Alice, Panama's Allah says in the core and
be happening in
So, some of the major mufa City
what is the hub let
if not bus, modular one home
and the others upon whom we cannot doubt their understanding of this ayah they said habla admit the JAMA following the core and and the sooner what the JAMA means
the the unified, disciplined community of Muslims following what
Quran and Sunnah. So Allah says,
We have been in law, hold on to the rope of Allah hold on to the United Community following the Quran and the Sunnah. How, with Gema Gianni Walla
formula, what's the formula to mean?
The formula to mean f to f.
So if the last is the opposite of what Gemma
and for which is the opposite of
it he had.
So the Muslims, who is following for us, in the US, or in the tribe, or in their culture, or in their color, or where they live or whatever they are against the Gema
and the Muslims who following if they laugh, even in their ideas.
flf is only allowed him
to laugh is only allowed in fifth.
Why? Why is it still allowed in the film? You know why?
Because when you have the Gema and many different people have different idea. They laugh, even maybe they're fuqaha different people have to laugh about. But when you have Gemma, there's somebody called The idea is right or wrong.
So when there's
when there's Amir, the Amir, he has the final decision, even among those who have flf
but there is no fklf in a man in a Kedah know, in that there only has to be one aqeedah but in the fifth there can be many why because the fit will be determined finally by who
was me? What what evidence we have of that. The Amir
in the jamaah has the same power as the man and the salon. The Amir in the JAMA have the same power and precedence as the Imam and the Salah. So the amendment the Salah.
Can anybody in the prayer before him?
Know Can anybody begin the prayer without him? No. Can anybody lift his head before him? No. Can anybody recite Quran in front of him? No, the Imam when the Kama is called. He also will do what to the people. He tells them how to straighten their rights.
supposed to fulfill
the after the rule
Straighten your ranks
remove the gaps
allow straighten your hearts
Fiala look to your place as such they're cut off your your cell phones. Clean your hearts remove this Gilda concentrate yourselves.
Why? Because nobody can say anything. He's the amount of the salon is right or wrong. It doesn't matter. Maybe there's alum in the back. Maybe there's some fuqaha in the back, somebody who's having a car on the back somebody a man from another place somebody he's a big man, he's a rich man, you know, whatever. But in the salop, who is ruling the prayer demand. So in the JAMA who's ruling the JAMA, the Amira.
So what is the movie hamdulillah Jamie, who has a very powerful meaning you
hold on to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala. Hold on to the word, hold on to the JAMA, stick to the JAMA stick to the group of the Muslims following the discipline. Okay, and we do not divide yourselves. And now I give you an answer to explain to us what is Gemma?
First, maybe we should understand what is an APA
because the Quran uses the terminology many places where last Mundo says SRS sujood
SRS sujood How many people have heard that in the Quran,
what it means for us to do
after st Jude means the mark or the impression which will come about as a result of a person making such that on a regular basis. And the purpose Nasim told us that this as a of those who pray will come in seven places on their body, on the verge of judgment that will shine with a light and even if they are punished in the Hellfire, the Hellfire will not judge the places of will those places the two feet, the two knees and the two hands and the forehead is right after a sujood but Arthur also has another meaning and does
it mean the author which was left by the companions of the Prophet lost them, the author was left by the terrain and the other which was made by the advisor Dean. So as our here means, the impression with the prophet SAW Sam had upon the Quranic generation, who is the Quranic generation, companions, as hard as the other one is right. Then after admit, the impression was companions, they left upon terrain and the impression terrain they left upon us.
And the impression they thought the adversary left upon the ummah. So as I'm here now means the impression,
which was given to us, passed on to us from companions to travel advisor be on to us. So now I give you an answer of armor in the hopper
was the other one. He said.
There is no Islam without Gemma, who said that?
This lamb without Jamal, does he mean no autocannon Islam
is a human that
I'm asking you
know autocannon snap. No, because our channel snap is not dependent upon Jamal. Jamal is a social phenomenon. That but but our channel Islam is not social phenomena. This is a part of our aqeedah is correct. So he did not mean there is no Islam without Jamal. He don't mean no out of Canada Islam. Secondly, he didn't mean no other kind of Amen.
He said there is no Islam without Jamal. What he meant by that is there is no social evidence for Islam except the drama.
That means nobody in the world can see the evidence of Islam without the drama.
So if you don't have any drama here, the people on the outside of this building, they will never see Islam.
They will never understand Islam. You will give them the books. You can give them the pamphlets. They will never understand Islam into society until they see the evidence of the JAMA is what this is what he said. Roger, what can we do what he said can we doubt him? No, because the process he said I lay can be sooner it was sooner to qualify. Ross Dean L
V r do ra m dinnerware just
hold on to them with the molar cheese not the front teeth they fall out real quick
the back teeth
are they can be so nutty upon you as the following my sooner and the sooner
with a fan and the avatar the lower on whom. So that means we have to follow what was understood and practiced by the worker what was understood in practice
what was understood and practiced enough and what was understood in practice but
we cannot doubt what they understood or what they practice because the profitsystem said
so humble he said there is no Islam without Gemma and no jamaah without what me
know Gemma without a meal. He said no Jamal without the Imam
because there's a difference between the Imam and the Amir.
The Amir he can be the Imam but the Imam is not necessarily the meal because the man means you're mmm you're unmarried young man as the man who stands in front of the people but the meal He is the one who is the Amir you are known as the Amir is commending the people. The man is standing in front of the people. So who have the most power?
Ha see how powerful the speech.
There is no Islam without Gemma and no Jamal without Amir.
And no, Amir. He said unless there is talk I would have thought.
it? Oh, la dee
obedience, authority, obedience and authority. So no Islam without Jamal. No Jamal, without I mean, no. I mean, unless you take him as your authority and you obey.
And this is the problem of the Muslims right now. We want to say we are Muslims. We want to say what kind of Muslims, we want to come to our messages. We will say this, we want to say that we want to read the books we want to talk we want to argue we want to just send that that and even with choosing the Imam, but the Imam he ain't got no Amil.
So you have to ask your email, who is the Emir? If he say, I don't know, then this mean that people got to come together and solve that issue.
That's like a group of people get in the car together. And you say the car belonged to me.
And I said, well, who do you want to be the driver? And the driver? Okay. He has to like, mm hmm, who will determine which way we go? Oh, I don't know.
Because somebody in the back. He say, yeah, I'm paying for the gas. Other ones say, oh, but I've been there before the other one, he said, but it's my car. And the one who say I'm the driver. So now you got argument, right? So you must establish face if you're going somewhere who will be the anneal because no matter who to copy down to who pay for the gas who've been dead before, who will do the driver will determine where we're going by who. So the profit loss and he said, if any three of you go on a journey together What do you say do
you must choose
this just on a journey? We drive it from here to New York. We have to have
someone driving from here to the agenda.
We got it from here to death.
We're gonna die following somebody and no,
no, we have to have a meal. In order to have a meal we have to have the demand.
And if we have a meal, we have to obey Him.
We have to obey. We can disagree. We can tell that he said to us, Okay, listen.
During the these days now during these days now, because the difficulty there's a lot of Asia don't come into overtime
11 right. So the people they come to
11 by the time they get back home is 12 1230 then they have to get up in the morning what time
330 so they can asleep they work hard job whatever. So the mirror he said listen, there is in the fifth Mashallah, there is something for Viola from Allah subhanaw taala we will pray the Muslim and he said together
we will play the Muslim and Isha together and we have deleted from the Quran. We have deleted from
The hajis we have deleted from the full ferocity and he said we'll play the McRib. And he said together, or some people said, some people said no, we are Hanafi we don't do that.
Some people said no, we Maliki we don't do that.
Some other people said, No, we are Shafi. We don't do that. We don't care you hanafy you serve humanity. We don't care, the amuse that we will pray Maghrib and Isha. He has a delille This means those who want to do that what they will do?
They do that and whoever don't want to do that, then they can come to the mosque at 1130 and they can play another prayer.
Are they wrong? But they cannot say the Amelia don't have no right to do that. And domestic because Allah said the proper say and they argue blah, blah, no, because we have to follow it.
We have to follow the amea as long as you have DeLeon for what he say is right or wrong. We don't have to agree with is deleted. But we have to obey is right or wrong. What's the evidence of that? I give you the evidence. There's many evidence but I'll give you one
when Ilan was the halifa
he used to give allowance allowance
to the Mahajan and the answer necessay.
He gives allowance to the Menagerie and the answer same server so this means 50% you know half half same.
how you give the answer
the same you give to the module
The answer is
Mashallah the module was there when the Quran first came, we want to protect the province last level, we made a huge run with him, Mashallah, we are How you going to give them the same as us. He said Listen, I respect what you have to say. But I saw the Messenger of Allah give me to answer and Mahajan don't say I'm going to give them same what Omar? He did what he said.
He said Mashallah.
you are you our halifa you our Amir? Mashallah, he did not agree on what he did not agree. But what he said Mashallah, I obey.
But when he passed away two years, what do you think he did?
What do you think he did?
He did what he thought was correct. And when he did
he cut for the answer somebody gave, and he gives that over to the children. And what do you think of people they did to complain that they did?
is different symbol is right. Just difference in STRF. But the issue is there is a meal, we got to obey. But now the armor, armor or Mr. Ali or any complaint is there any difference about aqeedah only in issues of
so brothers and sisters, we have to obey Allah and obey His messengers Rossum and we have to obey those who was charged with authority above amongst us.
This will bring to us unity.
And then this will bring the front of the people who's in this area, the visibility of community, brothers look, you can have you can have five buildings like this filled up with Muslims.
The Christians, they don't care.
They don't know what you're doing in this building. They don't have you building bombs of what to do it.
They don't know what to do and decide these buildings.
You can have five builders don't matter. Look in this area, there's 50 or 60 churches is right or wrong. But still the drugs in the prostitute and the homosexuality and whatever the people who still rap songs and Representative look I saw when I came here, I saw some hoodlums standing across the street
is a big church.
hoodlums is on the corner right there. Why because no under the law rule for now hidden mooncup is right or wrong.
So because you have five masks, or you have 50 houses, this doesn't mean that there is
no when there's five miles and all of them is under rulership authority. And all the people in the area is respecting that. Now you have Jamal then you see the Christians and the Jews and the other people in the area. They say oh those Muslims, they don't drink. They don't vote. No crime. Everything quiet everything nice everything clean. We want to live in the area. We don't know about this.
religion but we know the area is what? clean, safe. No drugs, nice Chiquita houses, everything we want to live in that area. Why? Because there is evidence they can see. And the human being he always go to world prosperity. When it rain real fast. If you're outside and the rain comes down, do you sit down and think to yourself? Oh, maybe I should get out of the rain. Do you? White, bright blue, green, Muslim, Hindu in the rain come down for a fast. Everybody is wrong. Human beings like that.
If you hear somebody said, oh, there's some people there on the street. And they given out $20. Everybody was
just giving $20 $100 to whoever want to come. You said Is it true? He said, Yeah, where are you going?
Everybody's going down.
You will find in 30 minutes, the places the police will have to come in. They put up barriers. Because what is people? I don't know, these people said they have a whole truck full of $100 bills, and they just give it to everybody. It's right or wrong. Nobody questioned where the money come from. Nobody question who they are. Nobody question how much they got. And no, and if the man said he gives you 100 and nobody said thank you very much. I'm leaving.
He gives you 100 the other person said can you give me another one?
give you my cousin.
Did I say one for everybody? Okay, good. Thank you. Can I have another one, please? Because I saw it on Hajj. I saw in hajj. The man came with a truck is big like this right here. And on the truck. He's given out books. He given up this. He given out that free water. He gives out juice like that. And the people the whole jazz. They come from everywhere. And power around the truck pushing fighting. Yeah. And the man He can't even hand it to them what he's doing to them. Can you take it like this here? He just throw it.
How many people have been on Hajj
is right or wrong? He just throw it because the people is crazy, right? So the human being is like that. If you have something good The human being is coming.
They don't want they don't say you have to say Islam. You don't have to say quote and you don't have to say Muhammad SAW said you don't have to say that. All of that. No, no, just make sure it's good. They come in. If you make your community strong,
they come in.
They don't care if your name is Obama, Osama.
They don't care. Look, look, you see?
For sure. I believe everybody is saying that. Obama, he gotta be the next president. Almost unless they kill him. He's gonna be the president.
Unless they shoot him, he's gonna be the president it looked like that.
Why? Because they believe he will bring what change. See the people they won't change. Even though his name Obama.
And his middle name is Jose, his first name is Bert and he's black.
So how is America?
So yeah, because he said change. And they believe he can bring what change if the Muslim can prove to the people we will bring change. People will accept Islam.
But we cannot we're not proving to the people we will bring change, not the kind of change they want. When they enter the mosque and they see the mosque shoes all in front of the mosque they say oh not that kind of change.
When they see the smell from the feet, and the toilets or whatever is not clean and dark, and it's not disinfected and whatever. And they see the grass of the churches is cut and, and everything is nice. And they come to the mosque to the glass door and all up and everything and then people hanging out all over the place. They don't want that kind of change. But if we bring change that seems to them to be progress, prosperity, peace, good development, knowledge, what they want. Maybe the Kufa, they start wearing Koofi, they start wearing the hats. Maybe they start growing beards. You know, there's a city in America called Philadelphia, anybody who had been from Philadelphia, and
Philadelphia. Let me tell you something. What's happened in Philadelphia, both good and bad. In Philadelphia, you have maybe one out of every 10 young people who is like, like 2016 to 20, right. One out of 10 or one out of 20 of them. young, young, non Muslim. You know what he's wearing live here.
He's wearing the pants to come up like that. He cutting off the pants and he's wearing that. Yeah. And he's active and he's acting like a Muslim, but he's not a Muslim. He said, Kim halleck, Habibi, Masha. Allah, Allah, you bought a cheek, it is not a Muslim.
Why? Because he hanging out with the Muslims. And the Muslim is worried. Yeah, he likes to hear the Muslim he's cutting. He's uh, he's raising his. He kind of like that the Kufa he cut it off.
Even some of them is selling drugs on the corner will vary. Yeah. And also your sibling has raised pets and drugs
but some of them is entering Islam as a result of the association with what Muslims in Philadelphia you can walk down the street and young children you walk down the street Somali
they not Muslims.
Because the Muslims have more good influence in Philadelphia. Muslims have good influence with poverty and doing business. Muslims have good influence I'm talking about new Muslims have good influence. Some of the some of the rapper guys who do the rapping and all that kind of stuff. They're now starting to dress like Muslims. This is not good, because misrepresentation of Islam but still some of them zigzag and wander into Islam still hamdulillah
so I'm trying to tell you brothers and sisters, that if our Islam become evident inside the community, then you're going to find Mashallah then you're going to find people who are going to appreciate and respect Islam more now next.
What about our family?
How the people will understand that Muslims keep their family together better than everybody.
I guarantee you any place in the world you go, the Muslims hold their family better than all other people.
hamdulillah I've been to now about 63 countries,
from China, all the way to Australia, always to Denmark, all the way down to Japan,
America, Scotland, Ireland, all those countries UK, all that so Mashallah in the world, South Africa, West Africa, North Africa, East Africa, Hamdulillah, Indonesia
and Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Mashallah China, Japan, those countries Russia, Mashallah we've been there and what I found that wherever the Muslims are, they have the family is stronger than everybody else. If you go to Africa, you find the Muslims have their family better than all others.
If you go to Asia, you find the Muslims have the family better than everybody else, because the last panel data he gives us this year a theorem which means theorem
respect, he gave us kerama
he gave us this theorem and give us this kerama he gives us this so that respect for the mother and father respect for the elder respective summit for the guests and love for the family and loyalty for the family. Allah He gives this to us Mashallah. However,
however, we cannot the non Muslim he cannot understand this issue, because
sometimes our behavior
is not correct.
I give you the I give you an example.
I don't want nobody here to feel like offended I'm gonna say a lot a couple of things.
If you go to Mecca, Mashallah. And
every other year I go there either in Ramadan or I go for Hajj, to sit with my teacher and to Mashallah to next era and to make ombre or hedge. And if I can be there for one week, if I can be there for two weeks if I can stay for one month, inshallah, according to the law, allow me to do that. So I have my own love for Mecca. In fact, 100 I'm telling you, I am mature. And you know, I can say My Name Is Khan and McKee, why because hamdulillah my teachers there and, and therefore, my teachers there I can say to you that I have my own place. There.
So whoever has a place in Mecca in his heart, and he has a place in Mecca, meaning his teacher or place next to his monkey,
and they use that name, but hamdulillah I can say I'm called monkey
in this sense,
so I know Mecca
and I can tell you most of the areas of Mecca whichever direction you're coming from, I tell you how as Mecca inshallah what different roads so and so.
So, I want to be clear about this matter, that I have as much respect for Mecca as anybody else. And I have a love for Metro like anybody else. But I know that Mecca is sacred because of what why is Mecca sacred?
Why is Metro sacred because of Harlem
because before you know Mecca,
Mecca what naked secret for us is because
not the people.
Some people think that when he comes somewhere, he has to lead the prayer.
Why? Because he's from Mecca. Why he should lead the prayer.
Why you should lead the prayer is so easy. So what you don't get to need to pray don't get to be the leader. He don't come to work because you have some heat from Mecca. Now if you live inside the Kaaba, he had no right to lead the prayer nowhere unless the people asked him to do that it's right or wrong. Okay. So I want to tell you a couple of things.
All of us know that we face Mecca. We love Mecca as the process and he loves Mecca.
And and all of us handed out we have full respect especially for the older mother*er had everything in Mecca why because Mashallah the closest to the Kava did Mashallah to denial and most of the most of them is at the center for all of this mush, okay good.
But you know, in Mecca,
Muslims have some major problems,
major problems for instance, can you believe that during the
during the cooloola how many people know kalola what is Tallulah?
doing the chi Lula and Mecca, there is some ladies who is prostitutes walking
in Mecca. Can you believe that?
I'm asked you can you think that?
Well, I must say somebody say sure. Why are you talking about nothing like that? I'm just telling you to choose. So you don't think everybody's making his wings?
You think everybody in Mecca is like he's flying around with wings? Everybody's mckuen
you think everybody in Mecca he's given a Hades he can give fatwa struck anybody in Mecca? He can give you a fatwa? No, it's not like that. During the chi Lula in Mecca, there is ladies walking around with a buyer and with hijab
and and when you pass by your car, if you park in the car here, she walked this way towards you. And when she comes to the car, she opened up a buyer like that. And when she opened it a buyer she had bought spend x you don't spend x
you don't spend x
the guys who ride the bicycles they weren't you know what I mean? is black is black, and a stick to the body. You know what I mean? Like Spider Man.
This goes pendeks so under she have no clothes on under her.
Just she's wearing spandex. So when she do like this, he open it like that. The man Whoo.
But he parking there because he already know that's the place they walk like that. How I know that? Because I'm working with the brothers of the higher you know higher.
The brothers who has hired who's, who's working with the American model, wanna hit the moon car. So I'm working with them. We riding around and we sit in the places and we watching them. And she come like that. And she come like that she walked past him. Did she bring it around? She like that.
She do that.
So we see her. And after that the man He fooled his car around him follow her.
And she grew up inside a building he got popped, he grew up in the building.
And the higher he followed him
we don't do try to follow him follow him to kiss the pin in the cup. No, that's not the whole business.
Just to knock on the door and make somebody open the door and then find out okay, we from the highest who's living here to living here.
Who else is this? Who is this lady walked inside Who is the man walk he says there has been a wife as a mother and father designed so they're not we lock up everybody in the place. Lock everybody up because why she walked in that place? She's not farther than that. No, no, no, madam. Nobody was that man walk inside the place. Now they will both be punished, not for Xena but for what?
For what his?
She goes to jail and he will go to jail and they will get tazzy and for what? For wage? Right.
So you believe this happened in the mecca?
Do you believe on the way to Kava Sharia is called Omen Cora that street going to Kava going to heaven is called omen. Cora is right.
Right. from bad Mecca, all which is about a mile and a half, about mile and a half.
If you go down on the block between Madrid or after slots in Asia, you can go inside the rooms inside there. And there's some guys in there. He's just standing there like that. And he lifts his eyebrows like that.
What do you think he's doing?
He's selling cocaine or he's selling heroin.
He's selling cocaine or he's selling heroin.
Okay, when he gets caught,
they will chop his neck.
They will kill him.
Because in Mecca if you get caught with drugs, marijuana cocaine, amphetamines this that they chop the neck, that's it.
Okay, this the law, they don't catch that many people but when they catch them the chapter neck
so you believe that in Mecca, somebody's selling heroin. Somebody is doing prostitution. Somebody's stealing inside the heroin. Some people only go to Hajj some people come from Hajj only for what
only steal they come from India, Bangladesh turkey from this place that place and they get inside with passport and they're not even Muslims.
And they come in for what Gypsy? Gypsy right? Some Gypsy Muslim, Romanian they they the Iranian whatever, because they can say
they get past where they come from Muslim country they come inside and only they picking the pocket cutting the belts and stealing you believe that? Of course. Because Allah subhanaw taala he didn't put the law inside the Quran for the non Muslim he put the law inside the Quran for
for Muslim. So if this is happening in Mecca
we know it's happening where
everyone during Ramadan
how many people has been in Mecca in Ramadan?
Anybody here Macedon Ramadan
we asked the last month all of us when we say
that all of us will meet sometime in wet in the Haram inshallah. But in Ramadan
people is going to Mecca to pray in the huddle is correct for what
is correct but better place to be Mashallah than to break fast in the hub and Mecca or Medina masala and after that, break the fast eat some food go outside come back to this lovely shop and make what Mashallah make
is an afterthought or after my grip make to us nothing better than that is right. Mashallah. So did you know that
many of the young people of Mecca day not praying
mug up in the huddle even some of them they even prayed
and they're not praying or we're in domestic and at all in a predictable way at all?
Because everybody's Muslim everybody's fasting because every Muslim everybody's doing Mashallah the breaking the fast, right? And everybody's Muslim. Mashallah. But
after salado, Asia, on the size of the road going from DITA to Mecca, they have these parks, you've seen them right. Parks, what kind of parks they are, what they call, shisha Park.
what they call it was another name for
Yeah, she's bubbly, bubbly, okay.
The size of the roads, from dicta to Mecca you have four or five of those parks, and how many people can fit in those parks? 5000 cars 5000 cars can fit inside Yeah, inside those boxes like 10,000 Who are they? Young Muslims? Who's inside the park smoking the shisha pipe watching MTV watching bt watching the sports, the football, listen to the radio, listen to the iPods smoking from the hub Liberty at the same time when the people is praying inside the huddle.
Who are the
young Muslims who are Muslims all their lives? Some of them their father's his emails and do ads and everything. That's where they are praying. This is where where's this? Mecca?
so fathers if you don't change your behavior
your sons will be in the coffee shops and chewing cut also.
And not only that the cut will not be strong enough
they will start smoking marijuana cuz this marijuana is like the pot but a little stronger.
No, in fact, the pot is stronger than the marijuana. But the marijuana have a different effect.
The pot is something which the people can choose. You call it cousin, vaccine.
You see what the spliff the spliff is different. The people don't do gene and do rigidity like that. There's all that but when they smoke the spliff, they're in the club with the girls and everything is right or wrong. Now the fathers don't know there's some young brothers in here who do know
so if you don't stop smoking, this is true in this cut. If you don't stop smoking, this shisha and sitting in the coffee shop talking foolishness about the tribes and Somalia and the war and the politics and the blah, blah, blah. Your sons and daughters will be in the clubs, smoking the spliff and smoked snorted cocaine, and that just that is gone. Now you say this will not happen to my daughter, you just a fool.
Because I go all around the world. Let me tell you. I've been to the Somali community in San Diego. I've been through Somali community in Portland and mentored Somali community in Atlanta, and I've been to the Somali community all over every place whether it's in Europe or displaced at that place I've been to here and in Columbus and in the Toronto and every place and I like the Somali community more than and Somalia and Amaro and Ethiopian Eritrean. All the people from East Africa comar peoples originally from dead me before it's habits right. Before the Kufa they broke it up. It's all habashi is right?
Kenya, Eritrea, Abyssinia Okay, Ethiopia Somalia all of this here is all before habas is right in Sudan is all habit is correct. So me I'm happy
you see West Africa This is not
West Africa is different is all Africa but different. So as I studied my background and my culture where I come from, I'm Heather sheets I'm like you this May you should give me a white from you.
Bring me all the way back full circle right? Mashallah. So you see Mashallah brothers, if you don't stop this behavior, you're going to find Mashallah that some of your daughter's going to be gone.
because let me tell you what some of the girls is doing now.
Ethiopian girls Somali girls Elysium girls Mashallah sisters from Kenya and the whatever Let me tell you what they do
they very fast, very smart they talk a lot Mashallah much faster than the other girls. See, smart must be holding for n Mashallah they're respecting their families all of that day, but they in America and America is about speed and about style is right or wrong. speed and style is right. So the young sisters Mashallah some of them I give the talk and they say chin you Mashallah we can Can we talk to you?
Is it is it legal for us to smoke shisha pipe? to smoke shisha they call it in the Arabic world they call it?
Shall I say can we smoke that she's asking me that why she's asking that because she already smoking.
Can we smoke them
Tell us that you smoke smoke weed
I go further I say you smoke weed no so why are you smoking the shisha
you smoke the shisha because you want to get high
she said no no no it's not like that it's not like that
you smoke a shisha pipe because cause you sit in a place with the boys is over this movie she says all right she said yeah because it's not unit smoking shisha with the girls you smoke in a place where everybody can smoke shisha is right or wrong. She laughed. She said yes. I says haram sister. Why because you sitting there with men. So you lose your reputation even though you're not prostitute the boy he's looking at you giggling back and forth you imagine he imagined all of that you inside the street you lost your repetition right there just smoking the foolishness. Next thing sister you will start smoking that and now some of the boys they introduced something how you know
what they put inside the pipe
they can drop on a number of things then tablets of cocaine inside just like they can drop something else it's right or wrong. They can drop a little thing there of heroin inside how you know they can drop a little piece of cocaine or some sediment inside you don't know and if you someplace smoking that would some boys and you pass out they go to rape you
and when you wake up you don't know what happened now you pregnant
the sister she shocked because I talked to her like that. And not only is just you open the door now I'm going to tell you
next thing you want to ask me is can I have a boyfriend
and the other girl laughed. But if he was mad about you, my daughter slept, you know, sister you feel lost. And don't be talking foolishness like that. And I know she's asking only because she sees me as her uncle right?
So I give her hard and soft utterances to look up Allah subhanaw taala you are pure. You are good Muslim, Mashallah, you hold the Quran, and you come to the Mahabharat because you respect Islam, but I already see you be touched. You've already been affected. She's already somebody cuz she asked me about the phone. I have a boy asked, Can I have a boyfriend if we want to talk on the phone?
I said how he talked to use Esther. She said no, no, just talk. I said no, no, no. I mean, did he talk with his feet?
She said no. I said how he talk. He talked with his lips and his tongue and his voice. I said yes. Because the lips, Allah says
in the sutras but when he said when he said no, she said
no, no, before that. I before that.
alumna Jalla, who is a what is
a word a novena. Jane, Allah, Allah He made clear that the speaking and the talking and come from the lips and the tongue, with no lips and tongue He can speak is right. So okay, as a sister, when he's talking with you in the phone.
You like how he's talking? She said, sometimes. Yeah. I said this because sister he had his tongue in your ear.
She said, No, no, I do that. As a sister when his voice is nice to you, his tongue goes in your ear.
So when men is kissing with women, he put the tongue in the ear.
So now if you let your daughter talk on the phone with boys, this mean you are their youth, you are their youth. If you tell your daughter she can talk with boys on the phone, you are their youth as a father, you are their youth. And as a as a brother, you allow your sister to talk you also their youth and on the Day of Judgment, Allah won't even look at you.
So it is not permissible for a girl to be talking with a boy on the phone like that except her father say, okay, he can call you in my presence. He can call you in the presence of your brother and talk for a minute or two just something like because you are engaged. But just talking on the phone like that. This means the boy is putting the tongue in my ear every single day.
Now about that I take it another step when the boy talk to the girl with his finger with his tongue in her ear.
This is called the fifth step of Xena
because the last set in the Quran lateral Xena, this don't mean don't mix it. I mean what? Don't go near it. So the old man told us that Xena has seven steps.
Seven Steps. The fourth and fifth steps is the most dangerous one.
This is where they lead. And this is where they touch. They meet and they touch. As they meet me after they meet, after they meet, and they talk, and they touch tempo in the car.
So if the boy and the girl is talking every day, that means they have four or five every single day. How long is before they?
How long is before your sister
or your daughter?
Or if you 10 years old, your mother she's single. And you see your mother already talking on the phone with people how long before because you know a lot.
And then they said, always demand he pressing down like that.
The man is pressing down like that, always right. So sooner or later, he will force the woman to do what? Huh? Submit.
So I'm telling you brothers, our families, our behavior, how we preserve our families, to our behavior, how the people see us as to our behavior. If we don't do our change our behavior, we don't reform our behavior, then you're not going to find anybody attractive to Islam. Allah says in the Quran, carddav la Harmon zeca waka haba Mandisa, this is an idea about a flock, about behavior. And the last one said in the book is to
very I have been sent to do what to perfect, good manners. Allah said about the proper philosophy and he said, look at Channel a kung fu rasulillah or Swan Hashanah. It's about behavior, how you speak, how you act, how you deal, how you buy, how you sell, how you live, how you walk, how you are inside the neighborhood. That's how people know Islam. And if we don't change our behavior, nobody will enter Islam because people are judging Islam by who?
By the Muslims.
Why the Muslim?
Nobody would want to be Muslim as the Muslim is acting like criminal is right or wrong. If the Muslim he lied, he cheated. He steal the mercy of laws he said he says men Russia
man Russia for
me. What is Russia? What it means
Gee, what does it mean
deceive lie cheat deceive anybody lie cheat deceive for is not from the profit loss lamb and many Muslim men is using their women to do Russia.
So he is not only the US but he is also like a pimp
because he using his woman to get the money unlawfully
so he living off of the money illegally he's sitting in the coffee shop and collecting the money from the whatever he got two three wives on the welfare and he's sitting in a coffee shop he chilling out he's the welfare pimp
if you don't like what I got to say you ain't gonna beat me up I don't care
and if you ain't doing it you got you should not be have no angry with me. And if you are doing it you need to stop is right or wrong. If you don't you need to stop. If you're not doing it, you should not have no problem. And I'm doing it because I'm saying because these my sisters, these my mother's these my daughters and we need to protect them. And it's not right for the men to be doing like that. And secondly when the non Muslim who pays the taxes and the non Muslim who pays the checks and the non Muslim who interviewed the sisters when he knows that he said Islam is no good.
Okay, now let's move to the other issue.
Because all we're talking about is vision now we're talking about vision right? What we started out talking about vision
you know we that now the plane left the airport we up in the air now headed
towards where vision. So we inaptly now.
Now, what will make Muslims distinct besides their belief, besides their evidence of their community, their behavior and their family? What will make Muslims distinct. The Messenger of Allah a lot of Sam said and a very clear Hadith he said
nine tenths of the holiday
Risk of the very atom is in What?
Who knows that is
nine tenths of the holiday risk. For Benny Adam is in what?
The Java, this means a lot panatela through Why? Because the process I'm not speaking on his own right. Right. He not speaking on his own. He's speaking from what?
From what he is right. So if he said that nine tenths of our risk is integer, this mean he wanted us to be what
he wants to be.
He wants to do business. See, look at the wisdom. If you do in business, are you working for somebody else?
I'm asking you
a businessman. Do he work for somebody else? No, a businessman Do we have to ask somebody for permission to make Juma?
A businessman? Do he have to dress a certain way to go to a job?
No, a businessman.
He don't have to change his name from Mohammed to mode
from Abu Rashid to Ricky.
You know, from Ibrahim to Eb
because the kuffaar he don't care say the Muslim name. So I say he said, Abraham, Okay, can we go you can be going a bit
quicker you EBI.
What's your name?
Can we call you? Can we call you Abdi
Kimiko. You Ricky Richie. You say your name is Abdul Rashid. Oh, we call you Richie.
You see your name is Abdul Razak, Zeki
because he don't want to say your name.
So most of you don't want to lose his job. He wants to be alright with them. He said Oh, it's okay. So nice. erikki Hey, Ricky, come over here. AB me come in.
So he disrespecting us is right there when you say I need to make Juma. He said what? What is that? So on Friday, I gotta go. I said, No, no, no, we definitely have to have you here on Friday. You can't work Friday, you gotta go.
So the Muslim he don't wanna lose the job. So what do you do?
He stated on Friday and he loves the last one that says, He says we lost it and the poor animal Juma
will say, Yeah, you're either a new man, yo mama first.
He said that. So the Muslim no law said that allows calling him to that, but he's on the job. And the data is calling him to that. So he goes for the data and he loves the Juma.
But when the Muslim is doing business,
he can make Juma he can dress like he want. He keeps his identity. He keeps his respect. He keeps his family and in business, the motor the motor. Also he has good influence in the in the community. Why?
Because if I'm only selling water,
is this important for the people life?
Right? Water, if I'm selling food is important for people's life, if I'm selling clothes is important for their life. If I'm selling cars is important for their life. If I'm selling children, what else is important for their life or medicine or this is important? Yes. So that means they gotta come to me right? So when they come to me to deal
I have chance to influence their life and we have chance to have what conversation so forth. So the first thing Muslims should want to do not go to school and get a job with kofod but you should get the skills so you can do business.
Fathers should be business do business, you know so Pamela I just came from Carmel you know the slope. And, and as before that I went to the other one on 24th Street, you know, you know who I found inside doing this business? Oh
come on brothers, you know,
inside almost all the shops, the ones who are doing businesses who women and men is well
outside in the street
panela so we reverse the iron. Originally,
we had to reverse the iron.
Now I don't care always woman is married. A Good Woman day sisters in auditing whatever and their husbands is also good brothers Mashallah. Why the men get the women inside working and the men is outside the street.
Know the woman they should be home taking care of the children and themselves and the men they should be inside them places right around.
So those women is doing business right? And may Allah bless those sisters because Mashallah the strong sisters.
That's how they keep themselves because they can do business because if they went to work for the Kufa Confederacy, take off the hijab, take off the hat, this come out that whatever, where the shorts were the pants, this net wrong, but 100 I don't sit to say we doing that. So they're doing business metal, I'll reward them.
But if we send our sons and our daughters to the places to get certificates of training, in technology, and in business, and computers, and pharmacy, and this and that, and Dentistry of whatever, they can do business for us, and they don't have to work for the kuffaar. Do you understand that? Then in business, they can hire who fall to work for them, it's right or wrong. So if we do business,
and we have certificates, and we have products and services that we offer the community, and also some of them, we offer them jobs, then this gives us a resource that they will listen to us, right? Did you ever hear an employee who does not listen to his boss?
Hmm. Always the employee will listen to the boss is right.
Right, even the profit loss man, before he became a prophet, who he's working for, say the horatia. So even she's a woman, but just his boss. So she said, Barbara celebra, do whatever, bring media accounts, whatever how much you make this. So So do you have to listen? Yes, Allah give us that example. How he had a prophet, messenger saucer before he married, working for a woman. This means a woman she can be those sisters, may Allah make all of them like, say the hadiza.
See? So skills and resources.
All of us should be training our sons and training our daughters in skills and resources. And now today, our daughters they don't have to go to the college no more, you know that they don't have to go to the university no more. Why? Because the computer make it now so that the sister can earn the degree without even leaving the house. Did you know that? Do you know that the woman now can earn a degree and they don't have to leave their house.
They don't have to sit inside the classroom with kofod. They don't have to. Maybe they only have to go to the college to take the test.
But they can do all the homework, all the work the coursework, they send the books everything and they call the professor and go over this and that and they can earn the degree. Well how I know that my wife she's doing her PhD distance learning right now.
She's doing a PhD right now.
This is so we can our sisters can earn the degree, our sons can earn the degree and they can do business and they can get a certificate and they can have their resources so that we don't have to become dependent upon Kufa we understand that point. Because the last thing said, Yeah, the Ola I mean, yes.
Hi, Ola. Hi, Ron minear the souffle remains, the upper hand is superior to the lower hand. This mean those of us on the welfare begging on the Day of Judgment. Those who are begging will come in front of Allah with no flesh on their face the process and said whoever breaks from the people without any right they will come in front of a lot without any flesh on their face.
So even when you begging when you have a right Still, this is your deal, what souffle
and the processor needs to make a deal that I should have done.
She said that there was a law that the province was used to make, and he never left off this drama after his prayer ever. It was
Allahumma in the hours of the communal harmony was the walls were castle walls with Jubilee
party but he Janey waka
Allahu mfine vihara La Liga and harmonic was Bernini, the fabric and Mansi work. Look how powerful this
look how powerful this is. Look, let me translate. He says she used Rasulullah she said Rasulullah used to make some awesome use to make
This draw after every prayer and he never left it off, which means what?
more academic is right? more academic.
He always made this dry. So let's listen to the Dhamma Oh Allah, I seek refuge and protection in you from
anxiety and grief
from lack of strength and laziness,
and negative leanness that may be stingy
from being overpowered by debt, and from the oppression of men or law, I asked you to suffice me supply me with what is lawful to keep me away from what is unlawful and with your grace and your favilla make me independent of everybody and everything except you. Look how powerful that Hades this
when I when I heard that, that was about 3045 years ago, my teacher taught it to me. So Paula, I've been reciting this since that time.
And when I used to get sad and angry, sad and angry and frustrated and depressed about different issues, you know, my teacher told me recite this
woman Yeah, tequila,
Yala, whoa massagin wa Yarrow, Zhu min hai zu LA, Jessie.
Because Allah will give you a lot of supply you, Allah subhanho wa Taala will provide us has been a lot one man walk here, Allah will give to you allow will provide you but you have to work you have to earn then Allah He will put you in a position in the society where people will read for you. And when they reach for you, then you can set your price. And you can say what the condition is. But when they don't have to reach for you, they just throw down at you.
They spit at you, they just don't care. We don't want to have any justification for that. We want to be in a situation where we give to them. We provide them that they're going to do what our exert will come back and our elders will come back what is our is our is our power. What is our is our respect and what we want. We don't want people just to accept Islam just to take Shahada but they don't have no respect for our arrows. They don't have they don't we don't have no izabal among them. No, we want exactly and we want we want empowerment and we also want what respect.
Now one of the things that bring us power
is the dour
because Tao is very powerful. Allah subhanaw taala says although lsvt big will bill What the heck man? Well,
has done what jack Jill won't wrong there's nothing here. Acid vary a lot in Africa every year Lord knows this. Mandela and severely
will move to D.
And let me show you the power of Dawa.
So you will know about Dallas for me hamdulillah I know now
I know that the power is very powerful, though is more powerful than the atom bomb.
Though is more powerful than tanks, planes, bombs and everything.
Though is more powerful than the laser.
Tao is like that. You know why? Because dow goes to the heart and to the mind. When dow will go to the hot boom bring it back.
Dow goes in and brings it out. So when you get down What are you shooting for the hot you shooting for the mind? If the Dow hit the hot if the Dow hit the mind and allow he wants that person to be guided a lot Yahtzee man your shot What? Well, you didn't. They don't enter Islam. They don't become believer because of you that become be because Allah subhanho wa Taala he worked them as he told the prophet SAW Sam, you will not cause those to believe whom you love. Then he said that. Hmm. But Allah will cause those who believe hooni will Is that right? So let me tell you the power of doubt.
You know, in Brooklyn, in 1970 in Brooklyn, a movie
MIT was established in Brooklyn. This was called the hip hop.
Hip Hop. You heard that hip hop. We call it hip hop, snap, snap, crackle and pop.
Hip Hop, snap, crackle and pop. You know what we call it that because when you put some popcorn inside the microwave because of the heat, what could popcorn do? snap, crackle and pop. So the hip hop people, when they go inside the Hellfire, they're going to snap crackle and pop.
They're going to hip hop in the Hellfire hip hop, snap, crackle and pop into hellfire. So make that into a rhyme hip hop, snap, crackle and pop in the hellfire.
So fitness it and m&m is all monkeys who will be hip hop in a snap, crackle and pop into hellfire. And all of those who's dressing like them and acting like them and listening to their music. You will snap crackle and pop in hip hop and also following them inside the hellfire.
So your sons and daughters, they not listening to call on them iPods.
Maybe they listen to some Nasheed. Maybe they're listening to some call and but I will almost guarantee you nine out of 10 of them is listening 90% to hip hop, gangsta rap, challenge him to follow keep telling him to disobey their parents telling him to be disobedient to the society telling them to sell drugs, bring alcohol do to party do the buck buck this whatever it is trying to tell the girls your daughters to be like bling Hawes
like like Britney Spears, you know, like Beyonce. They want to be like Janet Jackson and Beyonce. They bling bling whores, they want to be like 50 cent and, and Jay Z and all these other monkeys. And then you got our sons and daughters wearing their clothes and wearing their shoes and listen to their next thing. You know, they want to go to the club and they want to do this and that. And the fathers and mothers don't know why they acted like that. What are you talking like that? Why are disrespecting me? Why are you coming in the house late? Why this? Why that? Because they follow in a different tower. The tower started in Brooklyn 1970 when I was in Beijing three years ago, China,
Beijing. The hip hop has now taken over in Beijing.
The hip hop, the Devil's Tower has reached China. It has reached Afghanistan. It has reached Australia. It has reached every place. Even if you go to the North Pole, you're gonna find some hip hop Eskimos.
So you mean to tell me these misguided, these misguided wine drinkin reefer smoking,
cocaine snorting fornicating line
people that are lost Panos alekos, Chevrolet, Berea, they they got our children wearing their clothes.
They got our children singing their songs. They got some of the boys wearing chains underneath their clothes. Some of your sons is wearing chains under their clothes. And then when they're going out to school, they're taking the chain and bringing it out.
Whoever's wearing a chain around his neck, he admits that he's a slave.
But it's not a chain. A chain is not a symbol of a slave of Allah. It means that you like a chain mean that you're a slave to the world.
And some of your sons is wearing the pants down and leave behind.
Maybe they will come home and pull it up a little bit. Pull it up. But when they get out in the street, they gotta walk that swag. The duck walk, we call it, the duck walk. See the Kufa brothers know what I'm talking about the duck walk.
You see the duck walk. And then we don't even know it that the first people that used to wear their clothes like that. The first free will was targets inside the prison.
The guys whose targets in the prison, the prisoners made them walk like that because it was going up inside them.
And they used to wear their clothes like that on their behinds. So it was known to be faggots. Now the ones who called himself g m g money on this app that he went to pass on it behind. He's a faggot.
You get the girls. They listen to Jay Z and they listen to you know they doing the book you don't see them I'm not seeing him
maybe the swinging you know with the key mouse, you know, whatever like that. Your say your daughter's you say not my daughter, not my daughter. No, you will see Okay, as you can see, you can see around the corner. Some of them girls, I'm not saying the Somali girls very few Somali girl doing this yet. Because Mashallah most of them a blob, bless them, they keep the address most of them hamdulillah. But most of the Muslim girls, some of them is going out of school with the Kima on and want to get around the corner. Come on coming off, throw it inside the bag.
You know, they take in the little thing and wrap it around so they can see the little behinds and all that good stuff to know Muslim girls, go to the high schools and see for yourself.
All the young boys in high school, raise your hand. Raise your hand, if you went to high school, am I telling you to, as right or wrong? You see somebody Muslim girls on the steps off to the side, kicking it with the boys is right or wrong? Shame on any one of you who allow your daughters, your sisters to be doing like that.
Don't allow no Muslim girls to be sitting with no kaphas like that shaman, stepped to the castle man, you and five other Muslim brothers and say Hey, man, this is my system I get out of here.
It's my sister Get out of here. And you tell her, don't let me catch you again. And then you go back and tell the man go tell her father, go tell your father would tell anybody to shame her. Because if you don't shame her, you will not save her.
And if you don't intimidate those Kaffirs if 10 of you brothers don't step to those Catholics and say don't let me kiss you sit with no Muslim sister again. Don't let me catch you doing that no again, because that's your that is part of your what is the process and call it for them for the Muslim is is called he is called a it's called healer. Right? realize right? This is your healer that we don't allow no Kufa or nobody to be doing like that with our women. We don't know that.
So I'm telling you that through doubt, inshallah, our empowerment will come. Because just like those who farm get their own power through music and sports. See, they given they get now children through music and through what? sports?
The entertainers, the entertainers, the musicians, the ones who got the sports who earn the money, they got the big money, the big cars, big houses, our children, they want to be like them, right? You know, I want to be like my
you know that, you know, I want to be like Colby.
I want to be like Janet.
I wanna be like Britney, I want to be like Beyonce. I want to be like this one in that one. And so even though your name is Mohammed, your name is Fatima whatever it is. Some Muslim sisters in Mecca is wearing a scarf that has the one that has the cross on it. what's called Christian Dior.
Sisters know what I'm talking about. Christian Dior, that the designer right, got a cross on it, right. Muslim sisters in Mecca is wearing a cloth inside the harem
code they the Christian deal. They don't see the cross on it. They just say Christian Dior or Dinah Quran, you don't want them, you know, or some other or they got the bag called Gucci. All the sisters, they want the Gucci bag,
the Gucci bag, that cost $75 $150 just a bag, they put the lipstick and stuff in it.
So I'm telling you, brothers and sisters that this is their dollar, but we have our dollar. And look how many Muslims in this country.
How many Muslims in this country
almost 9 million in North America.
More than 7 million in America.
How many non Muslims 300 million.
That means a whole lot of fish in the sea.
A whole lot of tuna in the sea. So if you want to fish if you want to do dour, there's a whole lot of fish that just jump in, jump in. You don't even have to throw your rod out. They did jump and just snatch them out like that.
If you want to get down low, because the coup for their life has hit the bottom.
They're confused. They're frustrated. They don't know what to do. They're killing themselves. They don't just hit the bottom now they need what guidance
who's here to guide them who will put here to guide them? Who Muslim
Allah says consume Hira
Santa Monica to
see our centers here for that reason. That's why we are here. We are here to redeem America. We are here to salvage America. But you cannot redeem America and you cannot salvage America unless you give the
only way. America don't need nothing from us, except what dour
America got everything except guidance. So a lot broader people here to give them what guidance. Allah subhanaw taala said he sent the prophets into this world do what? Do you provide guidance for the humanity. So a lot of put us in this country, for what reason? provide guidance for this country, and don't say who will not be a Muslim?
many senators, congressmen, mayors, industrial people, they will become Muslims, and they are becoming Muslims. And even the daughter of one of the Supreme Court judges took her Shahada.
And look, if Obama is going to be like president, his father's a Muslim.
His father's a Muslim. He said nothing about that. But you know, we know his father's a Muslim. Otherwise, how he gets the name Mubarak, how you get the name who saved his father's a Muslim. So now that mean he half Muslim? So he'd become president. Half of the president is Muslim.
To give the tower and maybe the other half of him might respond. Next thing we know they're being called in the White House.
We don't know Don't say no, well, man,
you knew the replica.
So that leads to empowerment. Why? Because we can capture people through dour. We don't take no hostage is. We're not terrorists. But we give the data to the hearts and the minds and the Tao of brings them in.
How we know that because last year, more than 100,000 people become Muslims in this country.
More than 450,000 people become Muslims in America from what
dour and the weak dow the Dow is weak.
Dow is weak. I'll tell you how it's weak. How many people here in the last 10 years can say they give one shadow?
How many people here in the last 10 years gave one Shahada with their own hand?
See that were weak
that was weak
I know at least 10 Muslims who are revert Muslims there was not born Muslims. I know at least 10 revert Muslims who themselves give over 1000 2000 Shahada
this only shows you that the Dow have this kind of potential
I'm gonna come back to the Dow in a moment to tell you how the power of the Dow how it can do.
Then I want to go to the issue of leadership. We want our sons and daughters to become the next leaders, right?
Do we want them to be the followers or the leaders?
leaders. If you want them to be leaders, you have to train them to be leaders now. You have to train them to be leaders. They're not just going to become leaders. You're gonna see no flowers out somebody's house ain't plant no flowers, the plant the flowers right or wrong. And you got some land. You're gonna come up one day, well look out the window. You're gonna see pumpkins and peaches and oranges and bananas. You got to have bananas. You got to have pumpkins, peaches, bananas, oranges and trees, all that and you didn't plant nothing. You're gonna see that. No, you only go see if you do what? plant? Okay. How many young Muslims here who is 18 years old? How many of you have a
five year plan?
a five year plan.
If you don't have a five year plan,
there's a saying. If you don't, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
If you fail to plan
That's it, because the processing said the Muslim is philosophy, right? This
is what would you know,
I assume and fatten right
uncertain that he can see in front of him.
And he's also for us. That means he has insight.
Most of the plan, we don't react, no, we respond. We follow away. We have a men heads, we have a discipline, and just how we achieve where we going. So fathers should encourage their sons to plan. Mothers should encourage the daughters plan.
That's why the promises and said, marry your sons. Get your sons and daughters married. When the daughter reach age of menstruation, start making plan.
When your son start changing the odor of his body, and he started getting some hairs on his face in his body, you should understand as a father What start making some plans.
plan because if you don't plan others is planning for you.
If you don't plan, others are planning for you. You will become part of somebody else's What
plan we want our children to become leaders. To do that we have to create some kind of leadership program
leadership program to give them the skills to behavior, talk about unity to community core and sooner the Akita about, about respect about discipline about everything the resource about themselves about their life, where they're going to be about their career. When you finish high school, where are you going next? What you're going to do Where are you going to live about your marriage about so and so we have to help them plan and the last thing
we have to think about our place in this society
I don't know about you guys, but I'm an American
I'm a Muslim What? murky that you say your mama Muslim Somali? are Muslim Ethiopian, are Muslim Eritrean. I'm a Muslim Arab. I'm a Muslim this No no, no where you live in
Okay, what what passport you carry?
Okay, what citizenship you want? Yes. So that means you are Muslim what that means you are a Muslim. Carry the ideology carrying the Amana carrying the Akita carrying the identity of a Muslim, but you are a Muslim carrying the responsibility of an American. That means you better know the American Constitution. You better know where you at. And like the boys industry, so you better know who you wit.
You better know Where you at, you better know who you wit.
So we can go a little bit more into this issue of responsibility of citizenship. Because that will tell us about our World Vision, where we want to be at today. You see, some people asked me, should we vote? That's like, That's crazy. Somebody asked that question. Should we vote?
In America, you ask me Should we vote?
I mean, how stupid and crazy can a person be? Like you don't need that get no fatwa for that. As I asked him, Do I need money?
Should I eat food?
Should I get married? Should I breathe air?
Should I have a passport? Should I have a driver's license? The answer is yes. Yes. Yes. Yes, definitely. Yes. So should we vote? What the answer? Yes. But the issue is how the issue is how not whether we should or not anybody in Mecca, and nobody in Egypt, and nobody in Africa, I asked him about no voting because they can't vote.
They can't vote in a country. How are you going to tell me what I should vote or not?
Now from x, or alhazmi, Chavez, he said the power of the society in America comes from two things, the ballot or the bullet,
the ballot or the bullet. So either we go to war and get power, or we vote and get power. Are we gonna go to war? No. So the only other way we can get power is through what?
ballot now that don't mean become Republican, or become democrat or liberal or nothing. No, it's not like that. No, it only means that everyone was 18 years old who do not have a felony. Go get your voter registration card. That's what you do. After that, who
Is your Amir? Amir, give him your vote.
Let the Amir decide what he will do with the vote.
How many Muslims in this in this state is 200,000? Right? least 200,000. Right? At least 100,000 they got the right to vote.
So 100,000 got a right to vote. They have they have a neighbor, colleague,
a neighbor, a colleague,
a neighbor, a colleague, a co worker, or associate right now Muslim, who who like them, who listened to them, who also worked with him, right. So now that's how many votes
how many votes now? He said 100,000? Is one of them get one non Muslim who trust him. He got another vote. Now. How many votes is that? 200,000. Right. So if our leader in Minnesota,
our leader in Minnesota, the Amir of the measures, will
he have 200,000 votes,
he can determine who can be the next governor of this state.
He can determine who can be the mayor of the city.
He can determine many things with 200,000 votes. So now should we vote?
But the question is not should we vote the question is What? How we vote. I'm not telling you how I'm giving you suggestion. After that. Let's sit down and talk about it. But if anybody any food tells you that you shouldn't vote, then what he's telling you is that a man can have babies without sperm.
Can man have babies without sperm?
Can a woman get pregnant without sperm?
You can't get no social power. Unless you control the vote.
power in America part of it come from the vote. And if you don't vote, the homosexuals and lesbians, okay, they do vote. And that's why in 23 states in America now men can marry men and women can marry women. And you can't say nothing about it even. Why? Because they voted and you did think about that. A lot told us I'm gonna bring my roof when I hit the moon car. The one of the ways we I'm doing my roof. We're not even one cup. One of the ways we can involve in that is what? sue the vote. Okay. Now brothers and sisters. That's that's my vision for the future. Because it loosens have power like that in America, what kind of power we will have in the country?
If we have power like that, in America, what kind of power will we have in the country in the world? Our power will come back to us right?
So we have the chance to set the platform for Muslims around the world.
And we can do it more than anybody else can do it. Because other Muslims, they ain't got no choice. They ain't got no vote. They can't choose. You can't say nothing. There is afraid to get whatever. But Allah brought us here and we can say we don't have to be afraid. Is that right or wrong? Am I right or wrong? All right, I'm gonna bring you back to the issue of power.
You know, brothers, sisters, I want to tell you how powerful the Dow is.
Today when you think about how Muslim countries have been invaded.
Tanks, bombs, bullets, soldiers, right? The right. Tanks, bombs, bullets, soldiers.
They have invaded the Muslim lands, right?
raped by women,
corrupt our children. Take our natural resources and disgrace us Is that right?
But do you think that is the way in which they have crippled us? Do you think that's the way they have crippled us? Not really.
See the tanks, the bombs, the bullets in the soldiers is what starts they go in
and they make the Muslims afraid.
After that, the tanks the bombs and the bullets they come back is right.
Then how they rule the Muslims after that, you know how words and images
the words and images do they come by tanks and bombs and bullets. How they come?
media. So the most powerful influence in the world today. It is what media

Those nine channels produce over 350 programs.
These programs get animations, they got all kinds of stories right or wrong, right? I hate the ones that wasn't right. Nickelodeon has spent $17 billion
to do what? To control the minds of children all over the world.
And no matter what you say, those images is teaching your children a set of values, a set of values and conditioning them right now. Making your children afraid of you, without you knowing it.

They want to take us high. We want to chop our necks off. They want to just tell him that who's telling them that
now brothers and sisters, if we do not capture some part of the media,
we're not going to be able to change the way people think about Muslims.
Now I don't want to talk about that. I want to tell you what we have done about that.
I want you
I want you to remember 233 things.
One is called purpose TV. That TV write that down Bradley's purpose TV,
that TV what I say
now hamdulillah I know you got this channel. You know you got Accra. You got meds? You got Allahu di you got Kevin Okay, you got Saudi channel two. You got this. You got that? That's beautiful. All of that is Muslim TV.
No non Muslims watching it as Muslim TV. And that's good. But how are we going to get non Muslims to watch something that we can influence?
Well, I'll tell you. Purpose TV. Because purpose TV we didn't say core and TV. We say Muslim TV. We say Islam TV. Now we're gonna say that because you say that
They're gonna watch it.
We say purpose TV, because everybody in the world is looking for what
purpose and I'll tell you to go look at it and you judge for yourself.
It is called TV for the Moral Majority. We want to we want to help clean the minds of people. We want them to see good clean images. It doesn't have to be religious. It don't have to be with with with with scholars given Qur'an and q&a and pray inside the huddle. You get enough of that on peach TV, Allahu Akbar and meds this that song so Oh, that is beautiful. But purpose TV it is to create in the minds of people morality.
And you go then you check it for yourself. This is one
the next thing is how many children how many people here is what go to MySpace, Facebook, high five. You know, MSN?
Almost everybody right?
Why because they provided that for you.
But we have something called challenge your soul.com write that down.
challenge your soul that calm by them. I want you to go there and check it out for yourself. Look at what we have put there. The whole Quran is dead Arabic and English is dead. Heidi sigh Bukhari the whole thing is that, okay, you go there you see, Mashallah, at least at least 200 300 400 ebooks that you can click it, download it, boom, the book opened up for you electronically, at least 300 ebooks, okay, and we will add on to that dictionary for the stories, okay, all these kinds of things, it'd be right there for you, then you can go into a clean supervised chat room, but that chat room you can do no person you can ask no foolishness, no girlfriend, boyfriend gun is on
discuss issues about the world and so forth. And to get information it is they also go to challenge a soul calm, we provided that as part of our group. And the last thing I want to tell you is and why he that calm put that down. And why that come al why and why that plan. Now what is lie? I'll tell you what it is. How many people here use Google?
Okay, how many people use Wikipedia?
Yes, and Yahoo and MSN? And does it go on and on and on and on and on and on? Right. But as I told you that there is a search engine that Muslims produce which is faster than Google.
You say I don't believe it right? That because you got wiki man.
Suppose I told you that the search engine and ye that when you put something in the search engine on a ye on a PC and you put you put on Google on a on a laptop and you put the same search word in and click up Google give you a million hits and a why he gives you 15 million hits Would you believe that?
Hard to believe right? You go test it for yourself. The other thing when you go to Google and they give you the hits and bring you the URL right dude give you a miniature of the homepage in color do I give you that you will give you a miniature the homepage and color and they'll give you the homepage at all right? Only the URL right?
Okay and why he gives you a full color miniature of the homepage
secondly, and why he gives you video email
you Google give you video email, you MSN give you that Yahoo give you that no. Also lie give you Oreo email.
So Masha Allah, and why he belongs to us.
And why.com belongs to us. So through a way to challenge your soul to purpose TV and do some other things that we're doing now. Soon we're going to have something called purpose Sim.
Purpose Sim. What do you think that is?
That's the SIM card that even if you're using at&t, or you're using t mobile or using whatever, okay, you using I was the other ones, Sprint, whatever. You don't have to change. See you just get the purpose sim and go to test
Tell sprint, I got purpose Sim, you keep your number, you keep your account with sprint or at&t or whatever. But once you get on your SIM card, the whole point and out of the good English, you get real salty heat, you get rahega
you get the Qibla you get this and you get so many things on the on here, right there. Plus you get here a thesaurus on Islamic terminology. You get here an Arabic dictionary, you get on your phone, all of this here free, only because you got purpose in how many people like to have purpose em. See, we're working on that now. How we will make money because $5 of your phone bill will come to purpose media. So if 1 million Muslims have purpose in this meet every month, we get how much?
5 million. So if we take 1 million every month, and we build an Islamic Center and a school or whatever, every month, we do that this mean from your own phone bill, every month we build in something like this year like this year only from purpose and this power. Okay, now,
everything I told you here is real.
I don't want to tell you anything more except this. That if you put $100 check in that envelope.
You will help us to bring this about faster.
If you put 50 in there, good. If you put 20 in debt good if you put 10 in there good. If you put five in debt good. If it's only worth $1 to you, then that's it. You look at your children if it's only worth $1 for $1
look at your children think about your life. It was only worth $1 $1
but I'm telling you purpose TV costs 26,000 a month only for just for purpose TV, and ye nother challenges. So another and if we want
