Hello hello hello hungry learn how to build Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala shuffelin ba where mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah He write it he will save you center test even Catherine cathedra from Abba when brothers and sisters
we were talking about, we are talking we are trying to study the hotter weather officers or sell them in our series of classes on living Islam. And the purpose of that is that the in Islam is the name of our practice Islam is not
philosophy, you know the theory. Islam is a practice which means that the purpose of studying Islam is not merely to acquire knowledge and acquire information, but to practice what we learn. And that is the reason
and because the the
the reason we practice is because ADGER that is the reward from Allah subhanaw taala is only on practice. Allah subhanaw taala does not reward people for knowing something, Allah subhanaw taala rewards people for doing something. And that is why it is so important to make that transition from knowing to doing just knowing and not doing is actually a liability. And our knowledge will become a burden. Our knowledge will become a
witness against us. So a person who has knowledge and who does not practice that knowledge. I'm talking about knowledge Islam will not have any excuse the person will not be able to say I did not know because he knows. Now on the other hand, not knowing deliberately not acquiring knowledge being ignorant is also not an option. It is the for either Rasool As Salam mentioned in this very famous Hadith where he said Tara will l furry than Isla coolly Muslim or Muslim. He said our colleagues that was salam. He said that to acquire knowledge to learn is a formula. It is far it is obligatory, it is compulsory on every Muslim man and woman.
Alhamdulillah he did not say and Allah subhanaw taala did not say how much knowledge is to be learned. But we understand that the
enough knowledge to be able to practice Islam in whichever part of our life we may be, this is for either. For example, if a person has wealth, enough to be able to pay a car, then it is for either it is farther in his capacity on him or her to know the
rules pertaining to zakat. If a person is going to get married, a man or woman it is for either it is foreign, it is compulsory, it is obligately on them to learn about what Islam says about marriage. When a person is growing up and they reach puberty, then they must know the rules that pertain to puberty. It is further it is far gone every man and woman Muslim to know all the soul and all the rules pertaining to the hara to purity purification.
Willow as well as hosel.
It is compulsory and and for either on every Muslim man and woman to know how to pray because this is our
this is the purpose of our existence that we pray and we worship Allah subhanaw taala and it is absolutely necessary obligatory for people to know how to pray. It is embarrassing to see in the masjid people who come five times a day for the fourth salah they pray by Jamar and if you ask them to give and then they give the other hand wrong if you ask them to give a comment to say the karma they do the cover rock and if you watch their salah they make so many mistakes. It is embarrassing it is it really my my point is you are you are a regular person who prayed May Allah bless you, you pray, and you pray in the masjid and you pray by Jehovah
but you just don't take the trouble to learn.
What's the what's the sense of that? So in Islam, the
it is compulsory to learn and to practice and that's the reason why we are doing all of these. That's why we call these classes leaving Islam is not just knowing about Islam, it is leaving Islam and in this we are doing now the lessons pertaining to
The cold water bottle was Rosa Salem. And in the last class I mentioned to you, the anti racist attitude of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and the anti racist stand of Islam. In Islam, there is no superiority of one human being or another human being on any basis whatsoever except one and that one is that person's obedience to Allah subhanaw taala we just stuck
in the UK ramaco Mandela Cago and lost Ramadan and is another hoodrat Allah's martela said, there is the most honor of you is the one who has the most Taqwa meaning the one who is most obedient to Allah Jalla de la rue. Now Rasul Allah is our solemn in his goodbye he mentioned as I mentioned to you yesterday, he said that there is no superiority of the of the Arab over the non atom, and there's no superiority over the white person or the black person or the black person or the white person so on. So, there is no superiority on basis of race on basis of tribe, on basis of color, no skin on basis of nationality, or based on any basis whatsoever, except for the whiteness, either.
beauty of this, Allah subhanho wa Taala as air superiority is based on the Aqua meaning the concern for obedience to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Now for the most part, except for some things like salah, and so on which are visible to the outside world. Otherwise Taqwa is a matter of the heart. It is how you feel in your heart. Do you have pleasure to align your heart? Do you have the fear of Allah subhana wa danas punishment in your heart? Do you have hope for his reward and hope for his forgiveness in your heart? What is your connection with Allah subhanaw taala all of these things are known only to Allah subhanaw taala. So what Allah subhanaw taala is saying to us very clearly is that you don't worry about who's superior who is inferior, that is my job.
And I have not asked for your help.
So Allah is not asking us to designate so and so as being superior and so and so as being inferior, unless rather than being worried about yourself. Look in your own heart. Forget about the rest of the world look in your own heart.
If you do not have Taqwa it doesn't matter what you think about X, Y or Z.
If you don't have taqwa, then you are in trouble, as simple as that.
Now, in this context, I mentioned do a very tragic thing which has happened. And this happened in the in many, many years ago, it happened actually from the 11th century or so. In India, where the the evil collusion of the rulers and the scholars so called scholars, and so on Allah may Allah may Allah forgive us. I'm not gonna take them but some of the biggest names of Indian Muslim scholars is in are implicated in this very evil thing may Allah, Allah forgive them Subhan Allah, they are the root cause why the spread of Islam was so poor in the whole of India that even now, Islam came to India during the lifetime of Rasul Allah He SallAllahu sallam, there is a masjid which is built in
Katanga Lor in near Cochin, which is from from for Hijiri for hingedly from the seventh century. Islam came to India in the seventh century, Mohammed bin Qasim came much, much later Islam but had been in India long before that.
So the key thing is that despite that today,
only about 20% Or not even 30% Maybe about 15% of people in India are Muslim. Why?
true preaching and true
demonstration of the beauty of Islam was not that
Muslim rulers ruled and they were interested in money they were interested in land and so on. And so they did their part. And the scholars sang there too, because they were interested in what they were getting from the rulers. And they actually created a
caste system in Islam. And how look at the irony of that caste system in a in a religion, which is anti caste which is anti racist, anti racism.
And they called it they made it to three casts, the measure of the the love and the album. The measure of they said are the
and the Agile F word, the tradesman and the
You know traders and business people and so on, and artisans and the herbal and may Allah forgive us how horrible to call something or the other is the the the superlative or the the the worse and the lowest form of the
lowest or the these were the what were the in the Hindu caste system
what are the what we call today Dalit? Right there's we call them sheduled caste and whatnot, but the only people
now Interesting thing is within course interesting is that when
non Muslims converted to Islam and mostly that was that was Hindus.
If the lower castes, the Dalits and the sheduled Gods converted to Islam, they were slaughtered into the other into the lowest caste. If Brahmins converted, they were in the upper castes
I was for many years on the board of two
Dalit organizations, organizations working for the welfare of the people.
And I consider that as a something they invited me to be on the board i They invited me to do some work for them, leadership development workshop for them. So I did that is it? Is it what can we be wise? Nothing. This is my this is my
contribution to myself and to my society.
And then later on a year later, or something, they invited me to be on their boards, I said, this is very strange. Why am I on the board of a dentist's organization and not only
is it in your heart, your village, as far as we are concerned, you are abroad.
And I consider that as to be one of the greatest honors that I have received.
So one day we were in this board meeting, and I mentioned that I said in Islam, there is no caste system. Now one of them said to me,
with, with due respect to you, I don't mean to offend you in any way, but you are wrong.
So I said this is very strange. I mean, you are teaching me my religion. I mean, I think I know why. He said, No, it has nothing to do with your religion. He said, This is what happens when the leads convert to Islam.
He said we are slotted into your lowest caste
which is other. So he said Why should we convert?
Why should we convert? He said the main reason why the leads will convert to likely convert to Christianity, for example, even Christianity of Dalit Christians, may Allah forgive me a jeep.
He said, the main reason why a Dalit would want to convert is because he wants to get out of the
the slavery of being a lower caste or lowest caste Hindu
where he's untouchable he has to bear especially if you're going to our villages and so on. It's absolutely horrible. It's unbelievable. The kind of oppression that is loaded on these people. And it's a routine thing. I mean, the nobody nobody bothered about
except of course, those who are suffering.
So he said, Why should we come but what what is the manifesto?
Please understand, number one, just as
if you cannot show benefit of living as a Muslim in this world. You can talk about Jana and you can talk about the day of judgment and you can talk about the affair until the cows come home. Nothing, nobody is hardly willing to change. Because all of that is the right. Right. It is it is true. It is what we believe that. But we believe that for somebody who's not a Muslim, they don't believe that.
And if you're gonna tell them that your life in this world is going to continue to remain as miserable and painful and horrible as it is nothing would change. But if you die, you will go to Ghana, he will sit down with us. I'm not interested. Right? I want food in my belly. I want to be treated like a human being.
I don't want to be treated like an animal.
I want to be I want to be treated with dignity and respect.
I want compassion I want love affection.
Then we will talk about heaven and hell
my life in this world is already held What is this bigger hell you're going to give me on the day of judgment.
Please understand get real this is not This is nonsense.
We have so much of cast ism we have so much of, of feelings of superiority or inferiority in our own our own community and our own way, not the religion but the community the way that religion is practice, that we shouldn't be ashamed of ourselves why not on the day of judgment we will be questioned by Allah subhanaw taala and those
who promoted this?
As I said, I'm not mentioning names here. But there is a very interesting book that if you are interested I'll put it in the in the in the description of the video. Read it.
This is one of our scholars may Allah bless him he did he's done detailed research and he has published
with the names and he has published the writings of the so called scholars because he says go so far because according to me, they are not scholars.
I don't care whose name it is not somebody, a Muslim scholar who says who creates a caste system
in Islam is creating a religion which is not the religion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam let us be very clear about that.
Rasul Allah is Allah Selim put Billa bin Raja Ravi Allah know on top of the Kaaba to call the oven in Makkah and at the time of Fatima Kava Kava, towards which we do not even point our feet when we lie down or we extend our feet. This is part of our otherwise Muslims, was under the feet of Bilal with Robert Viola, he was standing on top of the cover.
And those who had the choice of calling himself
he was the best person for that because he was unhappy.
Or he could have chosen any office I have, all of whom were there with him. There was Abu Bakar, Amara Lavon and Alia, and Paula and Zuma and sad bin Aviva cars.
And so on and so on and so on are the Allahu Anhu. And why may Allah be pleased me all of them, he could have chosen any of them to call the other, all of them Arab all of them,
except for one or two, or all of them have always said that either his own family his own cousin.
He did not choose any of the visuals beloved with Rama why
he chose Billa you know, because he would that was a symbolic choice. Here was a zahavi who was in terms of his taqwa in terms of his position with Allah subhanaw. Taala is among the highest of the highest, sir because Allah Malone
and from the perspective of Arab society, and Arab racism,
an era of tribalism.
In those days, there was no nationalism, but it was tribalism,
belonging Raba as a black, I will say, the Africans ex slave was the was the lowest of the low
Rasulullah Salam wanted to break that and say no, he is the highest of the high
because he exceeds all the rest of them.
All those who are not Muslim, all those were the great chefs of the, at that time, there was there was there was people like like sweltering hammer, people like Abu Sofia, who are not yet accepted Islam, and these were the leaders. So in our was our the Hatim of the of the Quraysh I was when was the was the head of fresh and beloved Ravana Ghana status is higher than all of them.
And as soon as Ellison wanted to prove that many years later in the demo Marbella, Omar Abdullah Katana Villa and I'm not just making these statements, out of my opinion, I'm giving you the the evidence of this, say that our Katara Delana was Khalifa
and incidentally these two people swear when our and our Sofia Avi Allahu Anhu. Both of them were Muslim had been Muslim for many years before that. They were highly regarded and so on, so forth. And they were the hub of what lies are lies I was I was.
I was when was the father in law of rasool Allah is Allah is Allah because his wife, his daughter, Omar, everybody, Alana was married to rasuna Susanna, they went to meet Omar Abdel katabi Allah, the Khalifa in Medina. Today we're sitting, waiting to be called when beloved Ramallah Golan who landed there. And as soon as Billa la Delano game said an hour called him inside.
So Abu Sofia, said to swell with our see how time has changed Allah Anwar. He said see how times have changed.
We are the leaders. We are the shrew.
We are the heads we are the tribal chiefs. And we are kept waiting. Whereas this
slave is allowed to go inside.
swell when I was in control Yatra
he said he was saying I had done I had when he was being tortured while you were plotting to kill Rasul Elijah, he said You and I were fighting the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,
when that man was being tortured, and he was saying I had to read
that is the true position,
not the false claim of tribal leadership or race or anything else.
This is what Rasul Allah is SLM came to change
my brothers and sisters
sua let us really really,
let us think about this and see, how do we apply this in our lives.
Then as soon as as LM said, point number four shatta has despaired of ever being worshipped in this land of yours, though he is content to be obeyed, in other words of yours, which you deem to be of little importance. Now, this is a clear wanting to enter into Islam fully and to make our desires subservient to Allah subhanaw taala and is the
this is the problem is most Muslims today disobeying Allah subhanaw taala either to satisfy their own desires or to keep up with their friends. We don't realize the evil of this and how dangerous it is for us on the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala said about this right Amanita Allahu Hawa under the Kuno i Li wa Akela. Das Cebu excetera. Home, yes of our own Oh you have pillowed in home in Cal and Burnham, Adan Lucia Vela. He said, geladeira Allah Who have you all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam seen the ones in him who has taken as his Elijah's God
as his object of worship, his own desire? Would you then be overkill? Are you willing to advocate Are you going to recommend him? Will you be over here over him? Or do you think that most of them here and understand?
Do you think the most of them here or understand they are only like cattle knit, but they are even further astray from the part meaning they're even worse than cattle? Who is Allah subhanaw taala talking about here? Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about people who give some superiority to their own desires, over what Allah subhanaw taala ordered. Allah Subhana Allah ordered us to
pray and to pray on time, but we delay our Salah because it is
more convenient for us to delay Salah unless we're married Allah ordered us to obey Rasul Allah is Allah Salah meant to follow make is a diva but we will shave our beards because we have convinced ourselves
that to shave our beard and to not have a beard makes us look nicer just go look in the mirror look at your face and see to me what what what difference it makes you
we don't we did we remove the sign of Mohamed Salah Salem from our faces every morning and we believe that and then we wonder why there is no Baraka in our lives.
Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to the women to wear hijab but we don't wear hijab because we think it is you know we will look nicer with all the all the hair flying all over the place.
Right? It's nothing to do with male or female dominated this is the this is the order of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Allah handled that order as not to deal in interest.
Allah declared war on the one who leads in interest
but we believe and we obey our financial analysts and consultants and we do not be you and will be Allah subhanaw taala
and then we expect to get Jana as a matter of right May Allah grant you Jana I don't care may Allah grant every banker Jana I don't care because Allah will not grant that job banker by Jana.
I am interested in my job
but if that banker is the money lender if the money borrower if the person who's taking him take their buying houses and mortgage or or buying cars on mortgages or whatnot and you know, whatever higher
loan system that they that they use, dealing in interest.
If if that person thinks that
they are going to get Jannah when Allah subhanaw taala declared war on them, and they accepted his declaration of war
that is between them. And Allah.
I do not make fatwa on this. And as I said, I'm not saying Allah will not forgive us over swans over No. And may Allah forgive. But please understand if Allah subhanaw taala has said Allah has declared war on the one beating and interest and if you are dealing in interest
what is it? What are you say?
My brothers and sisters, please understand it much easier for me not to say any of this.
I'm at least intelligent enough to know how to sweet talk you.
But believe me, I've even more intelligent to know what will happen to me if I do that with respect to last one.
So as far as I'm concerned, I will say what needs to be said.
As far as you're concerned, welcome. Listen to that.
Do what do you need to do? Or stop listening?

This is not a money this is not monetized content.
We did not get one single cent from this. We don't want one single central and hamdulillah
but please have mercy on yourself
to give our desires superiority or the orders of Allah subhanaw taala a shake.
It is idolatry. And I did not say that I'm not Subhanallah teleserye I just decided the items a little for can before you
read the I totally forgot where Allah subhanaw taala said this
is 43 and 44.

with which they had been reminded.
What does Allah say we immediately punished No, Allah said we opened on them the gates of every pleasant thing. Allah Subhana Allah says you want to destroy, go ahead.
Go ahead, do it more and more.
Do it more and more. We opened on them the event they forgot the warning with which they had been reminded, we opened on them the gates of every present thing until in the midst of their enjoyment in that which they were given all of a sudden, we took them to punishment and lo, they were plunged into destruction with deep regrets and sorrows.
And brothers sisters, think about this. It is the wealthy people in any society who have an additional responsibility of being role models for good
and not for evil.
People look up to them. They emulate them and they hold them up as proof
whether something can be done or not.
And that is why the Quran places greater importance on those who have resources to be good examples for those others or to face consequences. Allah subhanaw taala said about those who are given to selective obedience, because selective obedience is disobedience. You are selecting I will obey this I will not obey that. That is disobedience. Because if Allah said you have to obey three things and you say I will obey one allow I will not obey to for example I was router Sol homebrew while my 01 as llamo

alcohol or or intoxicants of any kind and gambling and fortune telling right and divining with arrows and Allah said these are the worst of the actions of shaytan stay far away from them. And you will really allow them to flow you will be successful. Now what do we do in our societies? Some people will still drink, they will gamble
and they will say no I'm not doing fortunately, other people will not drink but they will gamble and they will do fortune telling and they will say no, no but you see, this is a science and this is what not and if I put the bathroom where the kitchen is that I will get I will have more luck. Please understand this thing if Allah subhanaw taala prohibited for things then obeying that prohibition means leaving all those four things, not leaving point number one and keeping on to point number two because I want

lot of our data set about those who do selective obedience or for too long you know, nobody will get away with that formula. We've had fava Jazza who may if I lose Alec, I mean come Illa is Yun Villa dunya? Well, yo mafia Mati Europe Duna era shad de la Vega, from Allah who we have a feeling I'm Dharma alone, unless around 10%, then do you believe in a part of the book of the book The scripture and you reject the rest? Then what is the reward? What is the recompense for those who do so among you accept disgrace in this life, disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection, they will be consigned to the most grievous torment and Allah subhanaw taala is not
unaware of what you do.
Today we are talking about being oppressed by RSS and BJP and this and that and NRC and I XYZ and whatnot. Believe me, nothing happens without the will of Allah subhanaw taala. And if you see these conditions happening, the first thing to do is not look outwards at this one or that one, look inwards at ourselves and say, What are my actions like? What is my belief like, if I believe is full of shake, if I am begging people in their graves to help me when the the rub is on his arch?
When I'm making Tawaf over grave instead of making tar for the Kaaba.
When I'm following every Buddha and every shake and every misguidance in the world, and I leave the beautiful, clean, pure Aqeedah of the head.
When Allah when Salah for that I will not pray when Allah made zakaat further I do you know, magical calculations to reduce or to eliminate Zakah from my life.
I don't want to make a list all the stuff you do you know what you do? And I know what I do. Let us look at our lives. And ask ourselves this question
that all of the stuff which is happening in the whole world seems to be arrayed against us, what is the reason when we believe that we worship Allah subhanaw taala without whose power without whose will without whose permission, not even a leaf can vault or tree there how can somebody attacked me?
How can somebody have me?
So if somebody is attacking me and asked me what does it mean? It means Allah subhanaw taala is allowing it to happen. Why is he allowing it to happen
to me, when I believe that I am connected with him that I am a slave that I that I worship only? If this is true.
Why is this happening? Allah subhanaw taala told us in this ayat of surah baqarah Allah said if you take something and you leave something, the reward of that is his you don't fill it dunya is the life of this world will be very difficult for you. The life of this world will be made tough for you. You will suffer in this world, and on the Day of Judgment, you will be sent into the worst punishment. You will not Dona Illa available as the worst punishment I've ever seen. Resistors selective obedience is disobedience. Selective obedience is arrogance. Selective obedience says in the language of our actions that we consider ourselves and our desires to be superior and more
important than Allah and His messenger.
Selective obedience fools nobody except the one who's practicing selective obedience is costly and dangerous, because the man doing it
It does not see it evil until it is too late. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from ourselves. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to do that which is pleasing to Him and not that which is displeasing to Him. While some Allah Allah Allah will carry while Allah He was I remember
