we all caught up

00:08:22--> 00:08:22

with

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

a note of Sally sir Alan Taylor. What

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

was happening in my head. Then I

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

wonder this lab

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

with an Coronavirus. He was happy

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

what

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

one can do indeed.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Unless you solve a

00:10:09--> 00:10:10

problem

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

wanting as many

00:10:23--> 00:10:23

as

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

far

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

as I can't wait for him

00:10:44--> 00:10:44

to

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

come here,

00:10:58--> 00:10:58

honey

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

to

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

the

00:11:10--> 00:11:11

moon,

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

my dear brothers and sisters.

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

Last week we heard of

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

slama phobia

00:11:24--> 00:11:41

and the things, the kinds of challenges. And by the way, when recently kind of hesitant to even call them challenges, I like to call them the challenges. And some of you may have stepped out side and so crowded outside

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

with a cross

00:11:46--> 00:11:52

and you go on, turn on the TV, or you turn on the radio in your car, and you listen to the news.

00:11:54--> 00:12:02

So, I've been asked recently many questions. Why are we getting this from all directions everywhere.

00:12:03--> 00:12:07

It reminded me of a verse from before, and I've been contemplating

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

for a while.

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

Verse 186,

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

of Swords on chapter three.

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

I love somehow with that it says, and puts emphasis on it. He says, Let me know when

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

you shall be tested,

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

you will be try.

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

You will go through some of those difficulties. It's all a test.

00:12:37--> 00:12:42

You shall be tested. Don't be shocked. Don't be surprised.

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

This is the fulfillment of Walmart's data set.

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

And this has been

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

the case throughout history.

00:12:56--> 00:12:56

From the

00:12:57--> 00:13:01

data created added until the last person on this planet.

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

This is one of the laws of the laws of Canada.

00:13:10--> 00:13:13

So don't be shocked, don't be surprised.

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

You will be tested

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

in your possessions as well as your cells,

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

your body, your health,

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

as well as

00:13:27--> 00:13:31

your wealth and your production along with testing.

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

And most of the data says you shall hear

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

from those who are giving you the scriptures before you

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

a lot of harmful remarks

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

and comments.

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

Last year around this time, we were dealing with the issue

00:14:00--> 00:14:03

of a car The car insurance. And by the way that is not stuck.

00:14:05--> 00:14:14

This shows me we were talking about this last year. We are reactive. We have been used to being reactionary, we are reactive and some people

00:14:15--> 00:14:19

have you don't really need any of those things in America. But some people

00:14:21--> 00:14:29

in some other parts of the world went crazy and all of that and the police officer was assaulted and it all came to him it was over.

00:14:30--> 00:14:45

That's it. It's faded away. And by the way, those kind of violations is nuts. People were outraged. They have a reason to be outraged. But very few people did react in the in the most effective and most

00:14:46--> 00:14:48

responsible ways.

00:14:49--> 00:14:50

Very few people.

00:14:52--> 00:14:58

But in essence as a principle, we will be tested and we will hear a lot of things that will offend us.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

So how can we respond? How do we deal with this? What should What should we do?

00:15:08--> 00:15:13

Should we be ashamed of ourselves Should we just try to shy away from this?

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

Should we try to hide or what should we do a lot.

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

We shall be patient,

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

steadfast, you shall endure.

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

And patients by the way, does not mean you should just be passive and accept everything that happens around you, you know,

00:15:37--> 00:15:45

it means you should not complain. It means you should not panic. It means you should be calm.

00:15:47--> 00:15:52

It means you should be in control of your actions. And it means you should pursue

00:15:54--> 00:16:03

with steadfastness and endurance, you should pursue your goals and you should fulfill your purpose in life and not be distracted by any of those things.

00:16:05--> 00:16:12

You should stand up for the truth. You should speak up all of this concluded and the word sub when possible.

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

And then also how

00:16:16--> 00:16:36

you should be someone who has taqwa, fear of loss and how to add in your actions. Make sure that when you endure, or when you react to something, you do it in a fashion that complies with taqwa with the concept of ductwork and ductwork is doing what pleases a wall and avoiding that which displays enormous power.

00:16:38--> 00:16:49

So you can't endure, or you can't be patient in a fashion that displays is a loss of habitat, you can't do that. It just doesn't add up.

00:16:50--> 00:16:54

So people say, Well, I lost it. Well, if you do something, you're responsible

00:16:56--> 00:17:03

for something that will have serious consequences, and you're responsible for it, that is not pleasing to them.

00:17:04--> 00:17:21

And at the same time, if you try to pretend like nothing happened, and walk away and try to just say, Oh, it's so long, I'm fine and my family's fine and I'm earning my living. I've got nothing to do with what is happening in the world, you think that is pleasing to almost? No, because if you're silent,

00:17:24--> 00:17:32

you are participate. So, you must be patient in a fashion that is pleasing to us a panel that complies to

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

fashion that complies with

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

in order for us brothers and sisters.

00:17:42--> 00:17:51

To keep all these beautiful principles and values and meanings in mind, we ought to remember some of the points point number one

00:17:55--> 00:18:04

what is known in Arabic SPT lab tests, tribulations were lots of common factors, you have a belief, this is

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

one of the

00:18:08--> 00:18:17

laws and lots of happen with Anna, this is something if you are a true believer, this is something that you will be facing you will be tested.

00:18:18--> 00:18:26

So, we must understand that this is part of life as a Muslim democratic created. So we must accept this fact.

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

Number two, second point,

00:18:32--> 00:18:56

it is a mercy from a loss of power will die Believe it or not. Some people say Mercy is emergency probable. Why? Because the prophets on the line if someone tells us that when you are tested is a sign of email. Because you have some email, you have some light, you get tested. If there is nothing you don't test anything that has nothing, there is no hope. You don't test

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

there is no need for testing anymore.

00:19:05--> 00:19:22

hopeless cases, if someone has a disease that is spreading throughout their body and it is a hopeless case, usually doctor is not bothered with running some tests that sits over the ladies The conclusion is the person is gone. But you run tests.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

If there is hope.

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

It's a sign of hope.

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

Assignment mercy it must have

00:19:32--> 00:19:42

you gone through some difficulties in life so that you will turn back to a Muslim head without you go through some difficulties in life. So most of the time will forgive you says difficulties are fine

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

and it strengthens you. It makes you better it makes you stronger.

00:19:50--> 00:19:56

The third point is that the most common diagnosis with both good and evil are good and bad.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

And it is not up to us to choose we can ask

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

loss of power bad enough to discuss with you. Right You can pray.

00:20:05--> 00:20:08

But why is such that you will be tested but with both

00:20:10--> 00:20:14

you and you can't pick your own choice or your own test.

00:20:16--> 00:20:50

You go to school you don't you don't choose the question or, or your test your test. So lots of have just seen with what is appropriate to your condition some people good brings them closer to a loss of habitat and some people even bring them closer to a loss of habitat. But either way you will be tested. And either way, you should pass the test and do your best. If you tested with God be Be patient in showing gratitude, and thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala, giving credit to who it belongs to.

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

and preserve

00:20:54--> 00:21:01

our blessing bless you with and if you're interested with even be patient and know that it's from a loss of habitat and stop whining and complaining.

00:21:03--> 00:21:13

Number four, the fourth point, know that a loss of count data puts you through text so that you could turn back to him. So make sure that when you're tested,

00:21:15--> 00:21:36

that you wholeheartedly go back to a loss of habitat and some of us do it to 5050 they don't fully and completely rely on our wives or just a luck spreadsheet when he tests you to turn to Him. And rely on none but him and connect with him. So make sure that you don't fail the test miserably

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

connected with Allah subhanaw taala. Number five,

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

know that the best tool

00:21:47--> 00:22:00

the best elements, most necessary elements in overcoming any challenge or any difficulty is patience. So have plenty of it. And finally, patience

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

is not something that you can just go

00:22:05--> 00:22:05

to.

00:22:07--> 00:22:26

Somewhere is bigger. It's not a pill that you can take. But patience is something that you will have to acquire. You have to challenge yourself and you have to, to really struggle with yourself for patience. Patience is a gift with which victory is granted.

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

Number six

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

being tested is a sign

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

of you being on the correct path.

00:22:39--> 00:22:53

One of the signs of true belief is that you get tested. So people say oh, we're believers. This is a test. This shows a loss of profits. He told me the the believers.

00:22:55--> 00:23:00

Allah somehow God has given us do people think that they would say

00:23:01--> 00:23:17

we believe that all without being tested won't happen. So one of the signs that you are on the right path is that you are getting tested, you're going through some difficulties. The second the last point brothers and sisters is that

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

call into the path of a law

00:23:23--> 00:23:24

and is struggling

00:23:26--> 00:23:40

struggling for the sake of the lives of others it is our role Allah subhanaw taala brothers and sisters did not create us we did not greatness to this life so that we could just sit relax, have fun play golf and smoke cigars

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

amongst our growers to this life to test us

00:23:47--> 00:23:54

to test us so if you are if you are not struggling, that is something you must struggle

00:23:57--> 00:23:57

you must struggle

00:23:59--> 00:24:11

so we need to keep in mind those seven points and remembering that that will help us overcome any challenge and deal with any difficulty that we may be facing as individuals or as communities.

00:24:13--> 00:24:23

Welcome again please move forward from the gastritis squeezing. Allow everybody we have extra space here. You can show a whole

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

how's it going okay fellas a little sooner I bet

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

the sisters

00:24:41--> 00:24:45

since my last server less Pokemon here.

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

Things happened or there are three

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

issues that came

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

the media was so crazy about that caught my attention.

00:25:01--> 00:25:10

And I felt that it was important for me, from now on, to comment on those kind of issues, and try to draw some lessons from them,

00:25:11--> 00:25:17

at least in a second. But before I say this, I must point out that there are certain

00:25:18--> 00:25:33

etiquettes and certain obligations that the prophecy taught us with in regards to hope of Friday. One of which brothers and sisters is that the Friday Sermon football, whether it be in English or Arabic,

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

right, it is

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

a formal

00:25:41--> 00:25:46

and it's an integral part of the of the of the Fridays as part of it as part of the ritual itself.

00:25:48--> 00:26:00

And unlike any other lecture or speech, during the Friday football while the speaker is talking, one must not get distracted, or do anything

00:26:02--> 00:26:03

besides listening,

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

because that may nullify.

00:26:08--> 00:26:17

And my mind actually canceled the reward for the person who attended pray, everything's fine, but they will not get the reward of tomorrow.

00:26:18--> 00:26:28

And the promise has been appointed, he have examples like cinnamon Miss and Elsa, whoever touches or plays with pebbles. In the old days, they used to have gravel and some some

00:26:31--> 00:26:54

sand and soil wherever it was in the machine of the process. And they did not have carpet. So playing with any object of the phone, or the eyeglass, one must refrain from this. And another heading the problem said, or if this actually saved it. According to another narration. He said he was good whoever it says to the person next to him Be quiet. Having conversation with sometimes people hug and kiss, and

00:26:55--> 00:27:00

this will nullify the Friday tomorrow. So one has to

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

refrain from those things. And just focus because it's Sorry, guys.

00:27:07--> 00:27:38

So one has to remember those things that I wanted to point that out, in addition to the fact that I said that I once saw a man that walked in and sat down while he was giving a speech tomorrow. So the Prophet said to the man, have you prayed the problem actually stopped was with when sent to the man have you prayed? And then I said no. He says boom for somebody gave me afraid to record before you said. So this is also another thing that we need to to remember.

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

One, of course, the scholars said that the only person with whom

00:27:45--> 00:28:04

one could speak or interact is the holding the speaker, if there is some very important subject, if there's an emergency or if you want to point something out or want to ask a question, one could actually get the attention of the speaker and converse or have interact with the speaker. Other than that,

00:28:06--> 00:28:14

what should not do anything that will will nullify them hope by wanting to bring this to your attention. Now three things caught my attention the media was so crazy about.

00:28:17--> 00:28:23

Finally, finally, the FDA got to the bottom of the mystery of the pet swoop.

00:28:24--> 00:28:40

How did it that title was and how to data for this amazing accomplishment. That at the end for, for them to be able to solve the mystery claim the life of 16 precious pets.

00:28:43--> 00:29:04

And the media was so this was a breaking news. The reason I say 100 lies because maybe now since they got this top priority, very important issue out of the way maybe now they can focus on the real issues on the other less important issues. Like the 15 million children who die every year

00:29:06--> 00:29:14

because of hunger related, causes 15 million that is every two to three seconds one child dies

00:29:16--> 00:29:21

in the world brothers and sisters. But the media doesn't tell you that you have to actually Google it, you have to go and look it up

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

from the moment that I told you this piece of information

00:29:27--> 00:29:29

about children that

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

and one has to hold the media and anyone who's responsible for those things.

00:29:37--> 00:29:41

Have to hold them accountable and say enough is enough.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

It's about time not to distract opponents distract us from the real issue. And we must be active participants and right from speak. I guess this one was keep in mind that in Islam, animals and pets have rights but human beings have

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Greater rights.

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

And one was prioritized properly.

00:30:08--> 00:30:09

Number two,

00:30:10--> 00:30:17

I was really disgusted for the past two weeks. But the last two days in particular,

00:30:18--> 00:30:36

when I was about when I turned on the radio in my car trying to listen to the latest side heard, that sorts of things happen in the Middle East. And then the first piece of news that I was actually born with, is that they finally found out who the father is, of someone who died.

00:30:37--> 00:30:40

Why do I care who the father is,

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

as far as I'm concerned, none of them as a father anyways.

00:30:45--> 00:30:48

But it hits me later when I was asked by some Muslims.

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

You know, what does Islam say about this?

00:30:55--> 00:31:13

Well, maybe I need to say something about this. First of all, brothers and sisters, remember what I said about Islam, prohibiting certain things for the betterment of the society. This is why one should say I'm humbled in American Islam, we've had lots of fun with our boys.

00:31:15--> 00:31:18

And for the fact that it was found without amazin a prohibited

00:31:19--> 00:31:27

number two, we must not and I warn you brothers and sisters that this is what happens. So popular is these kind of

00:31:28--> 00:31:28

news.

00:31:30--> 00:31:48

They actually desensitize us, they make us get to the level where those kind of practices and those kind of issues we even become so concerned Oh, poor baby, what is going to happen to her? She's going to be a millionaire pairs here because babies are dying the world that have nothing?

00:31:50--> 00:31:53

Why are we even worried about that? Why are we following this news.

00:31:54--> 00:32:02

Because it was the sensitizers, Xena became so common, and the product and the consequences of it doesn't even bother us anymore.

00:32:04--> 00:32:16

And as a believer, you should not if you can't do much about it. If you can't stop it, if you can speak against it, the nice you can afford and the least you must do is have that resentment.

00:32:17--> 00:32:20

And you should feel that discussed in your heart and say,

00:32:21--> 00:32:40

and make sure that you help the children do not get affected by this. This is an Islamic, this is something that does not accept this is not natural, this is something we need to avoid. And that's why we're Muslim. And that's why we shouldn't be having these kind of things happening in our communities.

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

The third piece of news

00:32:47--> 00:32:50

was the Don Imus issue,

00:32:51--> 00:33:02

those racist comments made by him. And the point that I want to touch upon brothers and sisters, is what happened to this man from the beginning of a controversy until the end.

00:33:04--> 00:33:05

And how,

00:33:06--> 00:33:29

and I don't care whether they're self proclaimed or self appointed, or they are legitimate leaders, but how the leadership of the black community was able to put pressure on the sponsors of this man in the show, and how they got the result they want it. And in that there is a lesson for us as a Muslim community.

00:33:30--> 00:33:46

All kinds of things are said about this man in the province of the love, it said a couple of very offensive things much more offensive than this. Actually, they don't joke about these things. Yet, when they felt that it was about time for someone to pay some price for those comments. And when someone felt that Enough is enough.

00:33:48--> 00:33:53

And that we'll have no more tolerance for these kind of things. They put an end to it, and they took a stand.

00:33:54--> 00:34:14

And this should teach us as a community, that unless you speak for yourself, and unless you have a strong leadership and unless the leadership is held by the community. And unless we have we take effective measures, and we speak up and we stand up for our rights and our truths for the truth. Nothing is going to change.

00:34:16--> 00:34:21

If you want your rights to be preserved and to be respected,

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

then you must demand that

00:34:26--> 00:34:30

this is what America is all about. You must, you must ask for them

00:34:31--> 00:34:36

in a proper fashion, and things get done and things happen.

00:34:38--> 00:34:56

So we need to have some strength, we need to have some leadership. We need to back up our leadership many times when certain things happen to the leadership called for, for example, to boycott something, guess what the Muslim community it's failed. Why nobody responds, nobody cares. But here it did it. within two days the man was fired

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

because someone felt that it was

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

was enough. At this time it was offensive at this Southern Cross the money, this has to come to an end. And it happened.

00:35:10--> 00:35:40

We have many opportunities. here without consuming, it's about time for us to pursue them. It's about time for us to really realize what are the real issues and be concerned about them and take effective measures. Brothers and sisters, speaking of children dying around the world. Next week, it is my understanding that it's hard to believe is an event. There will be some announcement after the summer, and there are flyers out there for the children of Africa.

00:35:41--> 00:36:11

Make sure that you participate in some fashion. And this visit event your last dollar will relieve us from the burden of those 15 minute children that died around the world while we are here worried about feeding our pets food that we're not supposed to feed them to begin with. And while we're worried about our kids over eating and what have you, so we asked him last night to hold us responsible for all these victims of this social injustice that is taking place in the world.

00:36:29--> 00:36:31

One and it was was your community

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

believing in Saturday to talk about will believe in Sunday.

00:37:16--> 00:37:17

So please, it was

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

such a good

00:37:24--> 00:37:25

one.

00:37:26--> 00:37:26

What

00:37:27--> 00:37:29

we all do Carnegie

00:37:30--> 00:37:32

who will go and have

00:37:37--> 00:37:41

a notebook Sally said Alan Taylor. He will give what you do to others

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

was having

00:37:47--> 00:37:48

dinner.

00:37:49--> 00:37:50

Dinner is

00:37:52--> 00:37:52

basically

00:37:57--> 00:37:57

an accident

00:38:03--> 00:38:06

with a Coronavirus. He was happy

00:38:10--> 00:38:11

God

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

was that a

00:38:19--> 00:38:21

good time hang of one or the other

00:38:22--> 00:38:22

while

00:38:23--> 00:38:24

we're shutting down

00:38:41--> 00:38:41

then in

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

the

00:38:55--> 00:38:55

wild while

00:38:57--> 00:39:03

but as well as effects. Some will refer to a surgeon who

00:39:06--> 00:39:09

will clear the analytics Oklahoma.

00:39:14--> 00:39:14

Coachella

00:39:22--> 00:39:23

Coachella

00:39:25--> 00:39:25

Valley

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

Silicon Valley as many

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

as Allahu

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

Allah I can't wait for him.

00:39:50--> 00:39:50

Welcome

00:39:52--> 00:39:53

to Cobo

00:40:01--> 00:40:02

Hello, welcome

00:40:04--> 00:40:05

to Episode

00:40:06--> 00:40:10

32. And

00:40:16--> 00:40:16

now,

00:40:20--> 00:40:20

Hello,

00:40:25--> 00:40:26

my dear brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:40:28--> 00:40:29

Last week we heard of

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

slama phobia

00:40:32--> 00:40:49

and the things, the kinds of challenges. And by the way, when recently kind of hesitant to even call them challenges, I like to call them the challenges. And some of you may have stepped out side, so crowded outside

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

with a cross

00:40:54--> 00:41:01

and you go and turn on the TV, or you turn on your radio in your car, and you listen to the news.

00:41:03--> 00:41:10

So I've been asked recently many questions. Why are we getting this from all directions everywhere.

00:41:12--> 00:41:15

It reminded me of a verse from before I've been contemplating

00:41:16--> 00:41:17

for a while.

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

Verse 186,

00:41:23--> 00:41:25

of Zurich, I have on chapter three.

00:41:26--> 00:41:31

I love some habit that says and puts emphasis on it. He says, number one,

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

you shall be tested,

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

you will be tried.

00:41:39--> 00:41:44

You will go through some of those difficulties. It's all a test.

00:41:46--> 00:41:50

You shall be tested. Don't be shocked. Don't be surprised.

00:41:51--> 00:41:54

This is the fulfillment of Walmart's data set.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

And this has been

00:42:00--> 00:42:02

the case throughout history.

00:42:04--> 00:42:09

From the most powerful data created added until the last person on this planet.

00:42:11--> 00:42:14

This is one of the laws of the Laws of Power.

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

So don't be shocked, don't be surprised,

00:42:22--> 00:42:23

you will be tested.

00:42:25--> 00:42:29

And you will see possessions as well as yourself,

00:42:31--> 00:42:32

your body, your health,

00:42:34--> 00:42:35

as well as

00:42:36--> 00:42:39

your wealth. And your presumptions about testing.

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

And I'm also have a talent says you shall hear

00:42:48--> 00:42:51

from those who are given the scriptures before you

00:42:55--> 00:42:57

a lot of wonderful remarks

00:42:58--> 00:43:00

and comments.

00:43:03--> 00:43:07

Last year around this time, we were dealing with the issue

00:43:08--> 00:43:11

of a cartoon of the cartoons. And by the way that is not stuck.

00:43:13--> 00:43:22

This shows me because we were talking about this last year, we reacted we have been used to being reactionary, we are reactive and some people

00:43:24--> 00:43:28

have you don't really need any of those things in America. But some people

00:43:29--> 00:43:37

in some other parts of the world went crazy and all of them the processor was assaulted. It was okay internet was over.

00:43:38--> 00:43:53

That's it, it's faded away. And by the way, those kind of violations is not people were outraged may have been the reason for the outrage. But very few people did react in the in the most effective and most

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

responsible ways.

00:43:58--> 00:43:59

Very few people.

00:44:01--> 00:44:06

But in essence as a principle, we will be tested and we will hear a lot of things that will offend us.

00:44:08--> 00:44:14

So, how can we respond? How can we deal with this? What should What should we do?

00:44:16--> 00:44:21

Should we be ashamed of ourselves Should we just try to shy away from this?

00:44:22--> 00:44:25

Should we try to hide or what should we do a lot?

00:44:30--> 00:44:31

We shall be patient

00:44:32--> 00:44:35

status, you shall endure.

00:44:38--> 00:44:45

And patients by the way does not mean you should just be passive and accept everything that happens around you No.

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

It means you should not complain. It means you should not panic. It means we should recall. It means you should be in control of your actions and it means

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

You should pursue

00:45:02--> 00:45:12

with steadfastness and endurance, you should pursue your goals. And you should fulfill your purpose in life and not be distracted by any of those things.

00:45:14--> 00:45:21

You should stand up for the truth, you should speak up all of this included in the word sub when possible.

00:45:22--> 00:45:22

And then

00:45:24--> 00:45:44

you should be someone who has suffered fear of loss of power in your actions, make sure that when you endure, or when you react to something, you do it in a function that complies with tafawa with the concept of double and double is doing what pleases a wall and avoiding that which displays enormous power.

00:45:46--> 00:45:57

So you can't endure or you can't be patient in expansion. That displeases almost, you can't do that. It just doesn't add up.

00:45:58--> 00:46:02

So people say, Well, I lost it. Well, if you do something, you're responsible

00:46:05--> 00:46:11

for something that will have serious consequences, and you're responsible for it, that is not pleasing to them.

00:46:12--> 00:46:30

And at the same time, if you tried to pretend like nothing happened, and walk away and tried to just say, Oh, it's so long, I'm fine, and my family is fine and I have ever made my living. I've got nothing to do with what is happening in the world. You think that is pleasing to a Muslim family? No. Because if you're silent,

00:46:32--> 00:46:43

you are participate. So you must be patient in a fashion that is pleasing to us a panel that complies to tabular fashion that complies with come.

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

In order for us brothers and sisters,

00:46:50--> 00:46:59

to keep all these beautiful principles and values and meanings in mind, we ought to remember some of the price point number one,

00:47:04--> 00:47:06

what is known in Arabic as

00:47:07--> 00:47:13

test tribulations, where lots of hammer characters you there's a belief, this is

00:47:14--> 00:47:15

one of the

00:47:16--> 00:47:25

laws of lots of hammer with Allah, this is something if you are a believer, this is something that you will be facing you will be tested.

00:47:26--> 00:47:35

So, we must understand that this is part of life as a Muslim democratic created. So we must accept this fact.

00:47:37--> 00:47:39

Number two, second point.

00:47:40--> 00:48:04

It is a mercy from a loss of power with either believe it or not. Some people say How could this be mercy, it is emergency probable. Why? Because I promise on the morning, someone tells us that when you are tested is a sign of email, because you have some email, you have some light, you get tested. If there is nothing, you don't test, anything that has nothing, there is no more you don't test

00:48:06--> 00:48:08

there is no need for a test any more

00:48:13--> 00:48:31

hopeless cases, if someone has a disease that is spreading throughout their body, and it's a hopeless case, usually doctors don't bother with running some tests. That's it's over when they reach that conclusion, if the person is gone, but urine tests

00:48:32--> 00:48:33

if there is

00:48:35--> 00:48:35

this assignment,

00:48:37--> 00:48:39

assignment mercy must be counted as

00:48:40--> 00:48:48

you go through some difficulties in life so that you will turn back to a Muslim handle without you going through some difficulties in life. So most of the time which were given

00:48:49--> 00:48:51

difficulties are fine

00:48:52--> 00:48:56

and it strengthens you. It makes you better it makes you stronger.

00:48:59--> 00:49:04

The third Pro is is that the most common diagnosis with both good and evil are good and bad.

00:49:06--> 00:49:12

And it is not up to us to choose we can ask the loss of hammer bad enough to to soothe evil. Right You can pray

00:49:13--> 00:49:16

but life is such that you will be tested with both

00:49:18--> 00:49:22

you and you can't pick your own choice or your own test.

00:49:24--> 00:49:59

When you go to school you don't you don't choose the question or or your test your test. So once you have just seen with what is appropriate to your condition some people good brings them closer to a loss of health and some people even bring them closer to a loss of house now, but either way you will be tested. And either way you should pass the test and do your best. If you trusted with good be Be patient in showing gratitude and thanking Allah subhanaw taala giving credit to who it belongs to

00:50:01--> 00:50:10

and preserve that muscle how to bless you with and if you're interested with even be patient and know that it's from a loss of habitat and stop whining and complaining.

00:50:11--> 00:50:22

Number four, the fourth point, know that a loss of count data puts you through text, so that you will turn back to him. So make sure that when you're tested,

00:50:23--> 00:50:45

that you wholeheartedly go back to a loss of habitat, and some of us do it 5050 they don't fully and completely rely on luck, especially when he tests you to turn to Him, and rely on none but him and connect with him. So make sure that you don't fail the test miserably.

00:50:46--> 00:50:49

connected with Allah subhanaw taala. Number five.

00:50:51--> 00:50:54

Know that the best tool

00:50:56--> 00:51:08

the best element, most necessary elements in overcoming any challenge or any difficulty is patience. So have plenty of patience.

00:51:10--> 00:51:12

It's not something that you can just go to,

00:51:13--> 00:51:13

too,

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

somewhere.

00:51:17--> 00:51:35

It's not a pill that you can take. Patience is something that you will have to acquire, you have to challenge yourself and you have to, to really struggle with yourself for patience. Patience is a gift with which victory is granted.

00:51:36--> 00:51:37

Number six

00:51:40--> 00:51:42

being tested is a sign

00:51:43--> 00:51:46

of you being on the correct path.

00:51:48--> 00:52:01

One of the signs of true belief is that you get tested. So people say oh, we're believers. This is a test. This shows a loss of profits. He told the make the the believers

00:52:03--> 00:52:08

a loss of half I said I have seen last two people think I never knew that they would say

00:52:09--> 00:52:25

we believe what we lived and own without being tested won't happen. So one of the signs that you are on the right path is that you are getting tested, you don't feel some difficulties. The seventh and the last point brothers and sisters is that

00:52:28--> 00:52:30

calling to the path of the law

00:52:31--> 00:52:32

and is struggling.

00:52:34--> 00:52:48

struggling for the sake of the lives of others it is our role. Allah subhanaw taala brothers and sisters did not create this greatness to this life so that we just sit, relax, have fun play room and smoke cigars

00:52:51--> 00:52:53

amongst our brothers to this life to test us

00:52:56--> 00:53:03

to test us. So if you are if you are not struggling, there is something you must struggle

00:53:05--> 00:53:06

you must struggle.

00:53:08--> 00:53:20

So we need to keep in mind those seven points and remembering that that will help us overcome any challenge and deal with any difficulty that we may be facing as individuals or as as communities.

00:53:22--> 00:53:32

Again, please go forward, fill in the gaps practice squeezing, allow everybody we have extra space here to disrupt you can show a whole hell of a stop.

00:53:40--> 00:53:42

How's it going? Okay, tell us a little sooner I bet

00:53:45--> 00:53:46

the sisters

00:53:49--> 00:53:53

since my last server, my last Pokemon here.

00:53:57--> 00:54:00

Three things happened or there are three

00:54:02--> 00:54:04

issues that came

00:54:05--> 00:54:18

that the media was so crazy about that caught my attention. And I felt that it was important for me from now on to comment on those kind of issues, and try to throw some lessons from them,

00:54:19--> 00:54:25

at least in a second. But before I say this, I must point out that there are certain

00:54:27--> 00:54:41

etiquettes and certain obligations that prophecy taught us with regards to football Friday, when the bush brothers and sisters is that the Friday Sermon football whether it be in English or Arabic,

00:54:42--> 00:54:44

right. It is

00:54:46--> 00:54:47

a formal

00:54:49--> 00:54:55

and it's an integral part of the of the of the Fridays as part of it as part of originalism

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

and unlike any other lecture or speech

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

During the Friday football while the speaker is talking, one must not get distracted, or do anything

00:55:10--> 00:55:11

besides listening,

00:55:13--> 00:55:15

because that may nullify,

00:55:16--> 00:55:25

and my mind actually cancel the reward for the person who attended and pray, everything's fine, but they will not get the reward of Jonah.

00:55:26--> 00:55:29

The Prophet has been appointed and he gave examples like

00:55:30--> 00:55:36

whoever touches or plays with pebbles. In the old days, they used to have gravel and some some

00:55:39--> 00:56:08

sand and soil wherever it was in the process. And they did not have carpet, so playing with any object or the phone. But the last one must refrain from this. And another heading, the problem said, or this actually saved it. According to another narration. He said, Well, not quite as often, but he will switch over to the person next to him Be quiet, having conversation, and sometimes people hug and kiss and doing the footwork. This will nullify the Friday tomorrow. So one has to

00:56:10--> 00:56:14

refrain from those things. And just focus because it's a balance.

00:56:16--> 00:56:46

So one has to remember those things. And I wanted to point that out, in addition to the fact that the talks I've set up once saw a man that walked in and sat down while he was giving a speech tomorrow. So the Prophet said to the man, have you prayed he the problem actually stopped was what was said to the man, have you prayed? And then I said, No. He said, boom for somebody, get up and pray to recap before you said. So this is also another thing that we need to to remember.

00:56:48--> 00:56:52

One, of course, a scholar said that the only person with whom

00:56:53--> 00:57:13

one could speak or interact is the hudley, the speaker, if there is some very important subject, if there's an emergency, or if you want to point something out or want to ask a question, one could actually get the attention of the speaker and converse or have interact with the speaker. Other than that,

00:57:14--> 00:57:23

what should not do anything that will will nullify them, by wanting to bring this to your attention. Now three things caught my attention the media was so crazy about.

00:57:25--> 00:57:31

Finally, finally, the FDA got to the bottom of the mystery of the pets route,

00:57:32--> 00:57:48

how the death vector was accounted for this amazing accomplishment, that and the end for, for them to be able to solve the mystery that claimed the life of 16 precious pets.

00:57:51--> 00:58:12

And the media was so this was a breaking news. The reason I say 100 lies because maybe now since they got this top priority, very important issue out of the way maybe now they can focus on the real issues. On the other less important issues. Like the 15 million children who die every year.

00:58:14--> 00:58:23

Because of hunger related, causes 15 million that is every two to three seconds, one child dies

00:58:24--> 00:58:30

in the world, Muslim sisters. But the media doesn't tell you this, you have to actually Google it, you have to go and look it up.

00:58:31--> 00:58:34

From the moment that I told you this piece of information,

00:58:35--> 00:58:37

every children

00:58:39--> 00:58:44

and what has to hold the media and anyone who's responsible for those things,

00:58:45--> 00:58:49

have to hold them accountable. And say enough is enough.

00:58:51--> 00:59:09

It's about time not to distract the politics distract us from the real issue. We must be active participants and right from speak. I guess this one was keep in mind that Islam, animals and pets have rights. But human beings have greater rights.

00:59:10--> 00:59:14

And one was prioritized properly.

00:59:16--> 00:59:17

Number two,

00:59:19--> 00:59:25

I was really disgusted for the past two weeks, but the last two days in particular.

00:59:26--> 00:59:44

When I was about when I turned on the radio in my car trying to listen to the latest side heard that sorts of things happen in the Middle East. And then the first piece of news that I was actually born with is that they finally found out who the father is of someone who died.

00:59:46--> 00:59:48

And why do I care who the father is.

00:59:49--> 00:59:52

As far as I'm concerned, none of them is a father anyways.

00:59:53--> 00:59:57

But it hits me later when I was asked by some Muslims.

00:59:59--> 00:59:59

You know what

01:00:00--> 01:00:01

Does Islam say about this? And then it's like?

01:00:04--> 01:00:21

Well, maybe I need to say something about this. First of all brothers and sisters, remember what I said about Islam, prohibiting certain things for the betterment of the society. This is why one should say a company that America is not within without, without a voice.

01:00:23--> 01:00:27

For the fact that I must have handled that I'm a sinner prohibited.

01:00:28--> 01:00:35

Number two, we must not. And I warn you brothers and sisters, that this is what happens so poppers, these kind of

01:00:36--> 01:00:37

news,

01:00:38--> 01:00:56

they actually desensitize us, they make us get to the level where those kind of practices and those kind of issues we even become so concerned, Oh, poor baby, what is going to happen to her? She's going to be a millionaire pairs here because babies are dying the world that has nothing.

01:00:58--> 01:01:02

Why are we even worried about that? Why are we following this news?

01:01:03--> 01:01:11

Because it was the sensitize us, Xena became so common, and the product and the consequences of it doesn't even bother us anymore.

01:01:12--> 01:01:24

And as a believer, you should not if you can't do much about it. If you can't stop it, if you can speak against it, the least you can afford and the least you must do is have that resentment.

01:01:25--> 01:01:28

And you should feel that disgust in your heart and say,

01:01:30--> 01:01:43

and make sure that you help the children not get affected by this. This is an Islamic, this is something that almost does not accept this is not natural, this is something we need to avoid. And that's why

01:01:45--> 01:01:49

that's why we shouldn't be having these kind of things happening in our communities.

01:01:51--> 01:01:54

The third piece of news

01:01:55--> 01:01:58

was the Don Imus issue,

01:01:59--> 01:02:10

those racist comments made by him. And the point that I want to touch upon brothers and sisters, is what happened to this map from the beginning of the controversy until the end.

01:02:12--> 01:02:13

And how,

01:02:14--> 01:02:37

and I don't care whether they're self proclaimed or self appointed, or they are a legitimate leader, but how the leadership of the black community was able to put pressure on the sponsors of this man and his show, and how they got the result they wanted. And in that there is a lesson for the Muslim community.

01:02:38--> 01:02:40

All kinds of things are said about this.

01:02:42--> 01:02:55

very offensive things much more offensive than this. Actually, they don't joke about these things. Yet, when they felt that it was about time for someone to pay some price for those comments. And when someone felt that Enough is enough.

01:02:56--> 01:03:02

And that we'll have no more tolerance for these kind of things. They put an end to it, and they took a scan.

01:03:03--> 01:03:23

And this should teach us as a community, that unless you speak for yourself, and unless you have a strong leadership and unless the leadership is carved out by the community. And unless we have we take effective measures, and we speak up, and we stand up for our rights and our truths for the truth, nothing is going to change.

01:03:25--> 01:03:29

If you want your rights to be preserved and to be respected,

01:03:30--> 01:03:32

then you must demand them.

01:03:34--> 01:03:38

This is what America is all about. You must, you must ask for them

01:03:40--> 01:03:44

in a proper fashion, and things get done and things happen.

01:03:46--> 01:04:04

So we need to have some strength, we need to have some leadership, we need to back up our leadership many times when certain things happen to the leadership called for, for example, to boycott something, guess what in the Muslim community, it's failed. Why nobody responds, nobody cares. But here it did it. within two days, the man was fired.

01:04:06--> 01:04:16

Because someone felt that it was enough. At this time it was offensive. And this suddenly crossed the line. This has to come to an end. And it's happened.

01:04:18--> 01:04:48

We have many opportunities here that we're not pursuing. It's about time for us to pursue them. It's about time for us to really realize what are the real issues and be concerned about them and take effective measures. Brothers and sisters, speaking of children dying around the world. Next week, it is my understanding that spark relief is an event there will be some announcement after the summer and there are flyers out there for the children of Africa.

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

made sure that you participate in sub caption and this visit event your lost power will relieve us from the burden of those 15 minute children that died.

01:05:00--> 01:05:19

Around the world while we are here, worried about female pets food that we're not supposed to feed them to begin with. And while we're worried about our kids over eating and what have you, so we asked them what's in common, what is responsible for all these victims of this social injustice that is taking place in the world?

01:05:37--> 01:05:38

wide one and

01:05:48--> 01:05:48

then we'll come back
