Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
WA salatu salam ala shuffelin via, via Allah Allah He was happy he or Manuela,
my dear brothers and sisters and elders, we have been
discussing and talking about the ayat of Surah Taha jurats
and inshallah, this hotwire and next one that I will give, which is I think on the 12th of April because between now and the two of April next to demise I'm not here I'm traveling abroad, but when I'm back here on the 12th of April July that will be the final of this series on o'clock. And as I mentioned in shalom San minilite Allah

in the surah, Allah
gave us instructions, which we seem to have forgotten
and the results of which are clearly visible in our lives.
As what gives us solutions of how to be successful in this world and the next and it gives us solutions with respect to building and keeping together of this oma
are useful only when they are applied.
And that is what we seem to have lost track off.
So let us look at what changes we need to bring about in our attitude and behavior in our lifestyle and environment,
which will help us to get out of the morass that we are rapidly sinking into
Allah Allah Allah Allah who said in his column in the surah how we learn human psychology
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
Coombs, oh acaba
the law here
Allah subhanaw taala said, which means all mankind we have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes that you may know and recognize one another. Verily, the most honorable of you with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Is that Muslim that believer who has the most taqwa in kurama COVID de la he.
The one who has the most taqwa.
Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala is all knowing and all aware.
He has Baba knows all of this ayah the many of them.
One of them is
that Simon Delano said that this was revealed about Sabbath in no case. Are they allowed or no when he made a remark about the man who did not make room for him to sit? And he said, what does that so and so referring to his mother, Travis Allen, who was one of the closest of the Sahaba to Ramiz, Allah, Allah he was
he was a very beautiful reciter of the Quran. He was a great copy of the Quran. And he was also a man who was out of hearing. So he used to come and sit right next to him so that he could hear him clearly.
And one day in a madness of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam came and he came late. So the mattress was full. And he started stepping over people. And he taught people to move and give him space.
And one of those IRA was there, because this is against the other side of the business. You don't step over people to go in front.
So one of them said to just sit down there where there is space just sit there and some women said got very upset. And so he called around names
and azolla is all about a solemn objected to that.
Who mentioned that woman
and her husband stood up and said I did Yasser Allah Azza wa sallam said, look at the faces of these people.
And when he looked he asked him, What do you see? He said, I see white, red and black people.
And he said, You are not better than any of them. Unless it is through the good practice of religion and taqwa.
One of the lessons that I take from this head is relating to the desire is how
did not hesitate to correct even those who were the closest to him?
Talk is up bother is bothering somebody does make some mistake.
The individual self corrected him. If he made a mistake in public, he corrected him in public. If you made a mistake in private he collected in private, he did not not correct the person because of his closest to that person. The same service in case
there are two Alibaba news or two is related to him.
And the first one or you heard from me the earlier part of the first I was gonna tell us a lot of Oh
Allah Do not raise your voice over the voice of the prophets. Allah is Allah
and savage when Christ stopped coming to the budget
and after a few days
and is a real Zola he is inside his house and he whips he just crying the whole time. And he says that I am from the people of Ghana, because Allah subhana wa Taala said his eye and he said the one who raises his voice above the voice of the Nabhi Allah subhanho wa Taala will wipe out his deeds.
Now his voice was loud and he was out of hearing unlike most people who are very used to speak loudly, it was not as if he was raising his voice, the meaning of the ayah Do not raise your voice above the voice of the Navy refers to challenging the opinions of enemies.
But that but the taqwa and the Osho of this ama was such that they did not go into even the word can the meaning of this thing be they looked at this is what it says this is what it means.
So let me go and call him.
And he said tell him that he is not from the people of Ghana. He is from the people of Jana
Becerra, directly to him as an individual.
And a sovereign used to say I've never said other than to say that whenever we saw that we've been walking, we would point out to him and say there goes a man of giedre
because I specifically gave his Bashara for the man. But the same person when he says something wrong. Let me say Lothrop does not say well, you know, he's a matter of agenda, I just give a shout out for him and know what is wrong is wrong. So when he called names to a particular person knows him called him and said, look at the faces of these people. What do you see? He said, I see people of different races. He said, You are not superior to any of them.
Unless it is by your practice, your armor and your taqwa.
May Allah forgive me and you we seem to have forgotten this. today. We think this is the meaning of accumulation of information.
Dean was never the meaning of accumulation of information. Islam is not an ideology. Islam is a practice.
He says not ideology, Islamic practice. The one who knows about Islam. Many of you have read my article, the Muslim scholar and a scholar of Islam.
What is the difference between a Muslim scholar and a scholar of Islam? Very simple difference, but very profound difference. One is a person of gender. The other one is a person of jihad. As simple as that, even though the scholar of Islam in terms of the actual accumulation and quantum of knowledge might have more than the Muslim scholar, but the Muslim scholar practices what he knows, he believes in what he knows, whereas the scholar of Islam,
for him, Islam is an ideology. Islam is a piece of information. Islam is history. Mohammed bin Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's a leader of the Arabs.
A very great leader, no doubt, but leader of the Arabs, what does he mean to you? Nothing.
Was you didn't mean anything to me. was a great matter of course.
Of course, charter
Can you tell me
there is a scholar of Islam, but a Muslim scholar? Who is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam?
What does he say when he hears the word Muhammad
Well, the difference between knowing
conquered Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered Villa de la Allahu to climb on the roof of the Kaaba and called the
atomic nasod commented and said Praise be to Allah that Allah has taken my father to him and made that he did not see this day. He said, it's a good day My father died before today.
And his father
had been his heart had been a sham. He said, Did Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam not find anyone else to call the call a rare other than this black Raven.
I was with him before that soybean hour, who is well whenever Catalano negotiated the Treaty of wasabia
on behalf of the rice, soybean be Amara delana, who had become Muslim. He said Allah subhanho wa Taala willing rasulillah salam will change him
he will appoint meaning he will appoint somebody else in his place.
I was again I am not going to say anything because if I say something, the rub of the heavens will inform Mohammed Salalah so I am going to say that the
mother of the heavens decided to inform Mohammed sallallahu wasallam anyway, so do you realize that I'm came to him and told him this is what they are saying.
And as we call them, a ask them
and they admitted Allah subhanaw taala then revealed this ayah in academic Amendola, which warned them against boasting about the language, and boasting about their wealth and their positions, and about looking down on the poor.
My brothers and sisters,
Allah subhanaw taala reminds us in this ayah about two very crucial matters which are the cause of so much strife in the world, and so much conflict, racism and class struggle.
Allah subhanaw taala reminded us about the fact that not only did he create us for one man and one woman, our Father, and our mother Hawa alayhi wasallam but that he is not jealous Allah Allah who is not bound by genetic code because He is the creator of genetic codes. And that is why from the same men and women, same man and woman, he gave rise to races ranging from Mongolia to Caucasian to Libyan to Arab.
They used to be three main racial classifications caucasoid negroid, and manga light
which interestingly had to do with facial features.
with having a straight nose as against a nose which is broader as against a nose which is flatter,
negroid, and Mongoloid. These were the three classifications in the past.
And they were based on facial features not color.
Yet today, discrimination is based on color
by this classification. Interestingly, Indians, people of Indian subcontinent
They are related to the Caucasians to Europeans. Try convincing a British immigration officer that you are related to the queen.
Interestingly, I was doing some research when I was reading.
And it produced this gem and I quote, the racial classifications of coxide negroid Mongoloid is an outdated classification system. As our knowledge of genes grows, these morphological distinctions that used to be defined as risks actually turn out to be a very small proportion of the human genome, compared to the vast amount of the average, you know, between each geographic area populations around the Earth being 99.9% similar.
Interestingly, the present so called classification which is African
American, European and Asia is not a racial classification at all, but depends on where you live in which continent.
Interestingly, also, if you ask, in Britain if you say the word Asian,
it means people from the Indian subcontinent. But in America, if you say the word Asian, it means Chinese.
So, what are we,
in this whole issue of confusion
is the issue also off what is called the cemetery Grace's
very dusty, the who are the cemetery the cemetery graces are the people who came probably by militia to major cemetery Grace's
or other one cemetery grace, some of whom follow the Jewish religion and some of whom are Muslims, and some of whom are Christians, all all of them.
So Jewish people, Muslim and Christian Arabs are all Semites
and who are not semetic European Jews.
Jewish people from Europe, not Semitic. But today you use the term anti semitic What do you mean? You mean anti Jewish? Do you call someone who's anti Palestinian anti semitic, but actually is
because the Palestinian
as Semitic as the Jewish people, and far more Semitic than the European Jews from Europe. I hope I confuse you enough.
Allah subhana wa Jalla Allah
warns us against falling into this trap of racism.
And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in Serato.
Allah said, Allah ma ma con la deuda is
he speaking about the conversation between Allah subhanho wa Taala and a bliss? And Allah subhanaw taala said to please What prevented you from making sudo from obeying my command to make sudo when I commanded you, boy, please. What did you say?
Call Allah hi ru Minho. Holla at me now will color the home in theme.
He said I'm better than him. You made me from fire. You weighed him from clay.
My race is superior to his race.
And that is the primeval
racist arguments which landed employees in the office.
So let us ask ourselves, whose lead we are following? When we are being racist?
I am ashamed to say this. And I sincerely hope that all of you share my shame that Muslim societies are rampantly racist.
We have innumerable examples of Muslims being racist in schools and communities. And even in massage
schools example I'll be following the example of a police
May Allah protect us.
What was the example of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
My sister's name is Allah Allah Allah wa sallam entered MK as the banker at the head of an army of 10,000 soldiers. He cleaned the cover from all the idols which had been placed in it. And then came the time to call the other.
And what did he do?
He had 10,000 Muslims with him,
which included his closest companions,
which included his own family his own blood.
But who did he call
to give the other
the black Abyssinian former slave
Bilaal beam raba.
After whose name
we honor ourselves
when we say
every single one of those people in that army would have given an arm and a leg
to be the first person in the history of Islam to call the man from the top of the cover.
What would occur and Omar
from the family of Mohammed Salah Salah, what would they not have given to be given that honor?
Salam himself could have done that. There was no need to
As someone else to do it, who was better to call the alarm than the Nabhi himself?
do you think he was making some kind of a argument to establish racial equality?
Allah knows best why he called him
because the actions of the NaVi are from the Valhalla Savannah hotel.
But I believe that the reason he called bill Alvin
was to prove the truth of this ayah in la cama cama De La
Villa paid the price, he paid his dues. He paid the price for Islam, or the LA
Bellarmine raga la who was a scholar of the Muslims. He was a person who suffered on the basis of his religion. He was a person who endured torture after torture humiliation after humiliation for no reason other than he said La ilaha illAllah
vilavi Ravana was the man whose footsteps Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard in the jungle
when he went in marriage, and he asked Bilal, he said, What do you do? Because I heard your footsteps in the agenda, which ml of yours is it? That Allah has given you this honor, and Bill are the Lancer era so Allah sallallahu Sallam he said, I do not know what Allah gave me the honor for but the AMA I do is that after I make
I pray to a cat knuffel Salah, the hetero
gave him this honor, not only of calling the run, but he ordered him to climb on top of the car and stand on the roof of the Kaaba and call the Muslims.
What is the example of racial equality that we have before us from Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He had been charged delana rates one day passed by the marketplace of Medina and saw a black slave studying young man while his seller was calling out.
And the seller was saying who wants to buy the slave? And the slave said I whoever buys me has to buy me on one condition I bought a condition to ask him what is the condition issue that he said I should not be prevented from praying the five Salawat behind mama Salah.
On that condition you can buy me so a man bought him
and sell him used to see this slave boy,
black African slave boy, behind him in Salah, every Salah.
And then those who didn't see him for a couple of days. So he asked his own I said, Where is that boy? And the man said jasola he
said to Zara we will go and visit him.
And they all went to visit this nothing is nobody
is black slave.
They went to visit him.
And after a few days, the man still didn't come to the masjid. So he asked his owner again. He said How is he? And he said his lips have turned black.
Again to this app, I said let us go. And when he went there to meet him, I met him
and Allah knows best what happened between him and his almighty.
But the man died in the lap of Allah
took charge of his also. He himself did his awesome himself, put the cover on it. And he himself put him in the grave. And himself did the salado jazz admit.
He did and the answer. There were people among them who were upset. They were they were shaken and they were upset. And they said we have been with Rasulullah sallallahu all our lives. And we have supported him and we left our city and we came here but we never saw this treatment.
And the answer we opened our homes to him and we supported him with everything. But we never saw this treatment that he gave to this black man.
And that is where Allah subhanaw taala revealed this ayah and said in Nakamoto
The law here
that your superiority is not on the basis of your race. It is not on the basis of your language. It doesn't matter who your father or grandfather was. It doesn't matter whether you're white or black. It doesn't matter which country you come from. It doesn't nothing, nothing, nothing matters not even your knowledge matters. It does not even matter how much you know, it does not even matter how much have you know, it does not even matter what an alum of Islam you are, the only thing which matters is your oven. The only thing which matters is your taqwa. Allah subhanho wa Taala is not visible. The taqwa in the heart of the Muslim is visible from his actions. taqwa is our desire that we do not
displease Allah subhanho wa Taala under any circumstances, and that taqwa is visible.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala stated categorically And clearly, that the only thing which are valuable for Allah is this taqwa. In this world, you can call yourself what you want. You can make people bow to you scrape, scrape to you, kiss your feet, kiss your shoes, make such a big one prostrate before you may Allah subhanaw taala protect us. Every single one of these things is done in this world today and is done by Muslims.
Didn't Allah, Allah Allah.
Allah Salam said forget about prostrating and suzu said if you make a Muslim stand before you, and you do not give him a seat,
because of your cover, because you think that man is not fit to sit in front of you, he said you will search for your own place in Ghana.
Just that, just that.
My brothers and sisters, the biggest drop of time that is that shattered tells us that how much we know means something.
And I want to say to you I remind myself when you how much we know means nothing, how much we do means everything.
after hatanaka was finished,
I also realized that a lot is left for
what we know is the Battle of Hernan
against the abundance of the people of dive
had in this army which was going to dive,
which was now about 20,000 there were a huge number of people who are new into Islam. A lot of the young aristocrats Of course, young men, they accepted Islam and also from other tribes. And all of them were in this army. Now these people are Muslim, but they had not had the opportunity of tarbiyah with Allah lollies. Allah
says his army was moving forward. They came to a place where they camped.
And tell us all about it bill I will not be allowed to call the run.
And when Bill
was calling the other end, there was a group of young Qureshi aristocratic, young men who are sitting there they were making fun of Villanova.
And they were calling him names and they were making fun of him calling around.
And the leader was the most vociferous, and he called him all sorts of names.
Somebody reported this was
another check, call them.
So they went to call them
and now these young men, they were very worried
because they are in the middle of the Muslim army. They have been summoned by the Commanding General.
They're doing something they know is wrong.
So when they came
in and said, who was the one who was making the most noise?
And the leaders that he also liked was me.
The man probably thought this is it. Maybe the lasala Millau signal and somebody will chop my head, because what better exemplary punishment to give, which people will remember
the price of making fun of VLANs or the lamb. Chop the head of aristocracy. Of course, nothing is bigger than that. Yes, maybe if you and I were in that position, we would have done that.
But this is
this is not me and you.
So, what did he do?
He told him come close the setup.
The man sat down his friends around him, the soldiers of
and said to him, shall I teach you how to call the other?
He does this man he said, shall I teach you how to call the other
end this man said yes, he also
said to him repeat after me
and he sallallahu sallam, he said
instead of twice the matter repeated
and then he said,
said it twice, the man repeated and then he said,
he said it twice.
And then he said,
Twice an amount of return. And then is it
This is the
of the method of correction
of the Nabi sallallahu sallam.
When this finished,
the man said to him,
he said jasola
is your city in Medina?
Rotella give this man a very long life.
He lived well into his 90s
and they say that he used to come to the harem
for every Salah
he would come before the Salah.
He would make the rough,
he would pray to Allah and then he would call me Allah.
He did that. He said, like
my brothers sisters.
The method of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not eliminate enemies.
He eliminated enmity.
He did not eliminate enemies. He eliminated enmity. He eliminated the hatred from the heart.
He eliminated the reason on the basis of which people were enemies. So his enemies became not only his friends, but they became his greatest supporters. They were they became people who laid down their life for him. His enemies
it is no great thing
to support Mohammed Salah Salah
but it is a great thing
Today we like to talk about EDA. Forget
Practice, what Allah subhanho wa Taala that the practice of what Allah subhanaw taala told us to practice is a reflection of our feelings.
We like to talk about that either we criticize other people and say what is the Akita so and so and so?
What is our Nikita
in terms of how we behave, and what we do?
the heaviness of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what he said, or the Day of Judgment, there will be people who would have fasted all their lives, and there were people who made Salah all their lives and
so on and so on. But he said there will be a man who will be ahead of the visit jasola who said Man, I'm not editing editing the actual hedges and narrating the meaning of several of these
these are rules that man he's the man and he held his target isn't the man who controls this?
The person who controls this done, the person who does not let his anger overpower his words, a person who has good o'clock and good morals. He said that person will be far ahead of those people
who have a lot of data in their accounts.
That does not mean it is not important. Of course it's important
to have those who are
the people who do a lot of other mail like accept the rebel inshallah
what Islam will not send for us to practice in compartments
that we worship Allah, but we do on
Islam was not sent for this. Islam was sent for us to express our belief which is in our heart, visibly, in terms of our actions in our lives. a belief that we claim to have, but which is not visible in our actions is not a belief. That is a lie.
May Allah protect us from lying about Allah Serrano Dalam says
my brother and sister asked Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from practicing all forms of racism.
All forms of discrimination, and all forms of treating people as if they are somehow inferior to us. ask Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with you
for gathering here, ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept our gathering here. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless all of you, and to answer all your drawers even before you ask this drop. And ask Allah subhanaw taala to help you in matters which I have no knowledge of.
ask Allah subhanaw taala to cure you from every illness that you have. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to be pleased with you and to enable you to spend your life and your time and your energy and your money and your influence in doing only that which is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept all of that from you even though he has no need to accept anything from anybody. ask Allah subhana wa Taala to be with you throughout your life, ask Allah
to be with you
at a time when we need him the most.
About which we have no control
over to grant all of you a debts which will be the envy of the believers.
Her death which will be in a state of
a debt, which would mean a set of pseudo tala debts which will be with the with the glorious magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala.
Allah will carry while he was heavy, his mind
