what is wrong

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

and doesn't tell

00:05:55--> 00:05:57

me a video as

00:05:59--> 00:05:59

I mentioned,

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

my dear brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

We have been hearing in the news

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

lately

00:06:22--> 00:06:25

about the rise of all kinds of

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

mean we see this every day, we read about it every day.

00:06:30--> 00:06:44

When we surf the net, we see symptoms and we see signs and the rise of all kinds of social problems phenomenas dangerous ones and critical ones.

00:06:46--> 00:06:54

Such as everything is in the rise, murder, mass murder, senseless murder, double murders, triple murder is all kinds of records.

00:06:57--> 00:07:06

Some of which are carried by the hands of people who are supposedly people who fear a lot more believe in the last panel

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

rape,

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

hate crimes,

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

gang violence,

00:07:17--> 00:07:21

and in some areas that are highly populated by Muslims.

00:07:22--> 00:07:24

Now we have Muslim

00:07:26--> 00:07:33

guys are formed by young people who are Muslim

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

thefts and robberies. And what is very alarming is that recently,

00:07:42--> 00:07:45

you hear robberies about robberies.

00:07:46--> 00:07:56

And you hear about people who got mugged, people who are elderly, children, even people who are handicapped or disabled, or physically challenged,

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

are now being victimized.

00:08:01--> 00:08:17

With all these issues, that involve a wide range of victims, we are being affected by this, whether we like it or not, whether we realize it or not. We are exposed to it or children are exposed to it. And it affects us.

00:08:18--> 00:08:23

And despite all the resources that this society has,

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

despite all these resources,

00:08:28--> 00:08:39

and everything at the disposal of the law enforcement agencies and the governments, this society is facing a major crisis.

00:08:42--> 00:08:50

A moral a social, a political, Comic Con in every field. And now more than ever, brothers and sisters.

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

America needs a snap

00:08:55--> 00:08:58

at least Islamic principles and values.

00:08:59--> 00:09:03

And who is better to inform America

00:09:05--> 00:09:11

about what Islam is all about and the Islamic values? Who is better than the Muslims?

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

But wait a minute.

00:09:15--> 00:09:19

How dare I say this? or How can I even think or suggest

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

of the Muslims being the ones that

00:09:25--> 00:09:36

carry this message to others when we ourselves as Muslims have been failing to follow the principles of this thing.

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

You see brothers and sisters.

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

We have an amazing faith

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

and amazing system

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

that has proven itself in the past

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

and that has been proven itself throughout the ages.

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

We know that this system

00:10:03--> 00:10:16

went to the Arabian Peninsula, or came to the Arabian Peninsula, at the worst of its when the Arabian Peninsula was actually suffering from the decline of moral values,

00:10:18--> 00:10:21

when the Arabs were scattered and divided,

00:10:22--> 00:10:26

when people used to rob one another when women were humiliated

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

when all kinds of social illnesses

00:10:32--> 00:10:33

were

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

acceptable, Islam came and changed that society

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

in a matter of few years,

00:10:43--> 00:10:48

for the three years, it transformed that entire Arabian peninsula.

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

A land

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

that was never united before

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

peace, people who were never able to come.

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

Even under the banner of

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

nationalism.

00:11:08--> 00:11:14

They did not unite. What did it for them, Islam was solved all of their problems, Islam.

00:11:16--> 00:11:20

Islam is the extension of the messages of the prophets before.

00:11:25--> 00:11:34

Islam, which is the essence of all the messages that are must be said, if the people of those messages were to follow what Allah has revealed in their work with

00:11:36--> 00:11:36

the

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

minister met with them.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

This is what Islam is.

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

Perfection. Now amongst Allah sent this message

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

to an extraordinary group of people

00:11:53--> 00:11:56

who allowed this message.

00:11:58--> 00:12:08

And the system that is based on this message, that is the Islamic system, they allowed that system of full chance. And they followed it, and they embraced it.

00:12:09--> 00:12:31

And they committed. And brothers and sisters, this did not happen without a struggle. And it did not and I'm talking about on a personal level on all levels. But even, let's just focus on the personal level, it did not happen without some struggles. On the personal level, some of us haven't had to change their ways to give up some of their customs. And some of their habits, they had to transform.

00:12:34--> 00:12:39

Some of them have to most of them actually had to learn Islam from scratch.

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

But they were committed to this process.

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

And they allow

00:12:48--> 00:12:55

full access to their parts. You see, we don't yet as Muslims appreciate

00:12:56--> 00:13:05

this deal. We don't appreciate the fact that we don't appreciate the power of this book, and what this book can do for us,

00:13:06--> 00:13:09

as individuals, and as communities

00:13:11--> 00:13:16

to realize the value of the poor, so they allow the poor and full access, and they let the poor and

00:13:18--> 00:13:18

he knows them

00:13:20--> 00:13:36

from their sicknesses, and from their illnesses, full access to their hearts. So no apartment. And they followed that gradual process of the program. And they were able to transform, and they were able to become from the worst of nations the best.

00:13:40--> 00:13:57

And only look for and can do them. And of course, it was administered by the best of teachers, probably how somebody would send them. But the problem so what what, why they were sending them had the best of students, and he had the best of followers. And his message still is there.

00:13:59--> 00:14:05

And many people benefited from it. So when is it going to be our turn brothers and sisters?

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

You see, many of us, unfortunately, violate some of the basic principles of all of us.

00:14:18--> 00:14:24

And we fail over and over again. And I thought to myself, maybe if we discover

00:14:26--> 00:14:33

the value of what it was panels, data centers, and this book, maybe if we understand the crisis

00:14:34--> 00:14:41

of this change for Android, maybe we will then appreciate what it must have done. So we will then understand.

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

If you remember, a few weeks ago, I talked about

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

the I was trying to make the case with Islamic law

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

with Islamic teachings

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

and I was talking to you and reminding myself about how this

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

To bring us happiness, and to bring us balance and to fulfill our needs, and how Islam and all the laws of Islam did not come brothers and sisters, and also carved out in pieces in the forehead to cause hardship in our lives.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

And verses that some of us are habits, they are the best

00:15:20--> 00:15:27

of what a must have the data had revealed to this woman, Allah subhanaw taala repeatedly says,

00:15:28--> 00:15:28

you have

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

to have a God intends

00:15:33--> 00:15:36

to ease your body screen.

00:15:38--> 00:15:43

You ready to use what I need to become almost tense, he is where you would not difficulty and hardship.

00:15:46--> 00:15:54

And in the laws of Islam, and adhering to them is that ease that we are yet to discover? I will give you an example

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

that

00:15:57--> 00:16:03

will make the point and shows you an eye How is them to close a habit through this gradual process.

00:16:05--> 00:16:14

You see, one of the one of the downsides of a loss of habitat upon the early generation of this woman was that it was palletize did not send up for an all at once.

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

In one book, like the 10 commandments, or the total.

00:16:21--> 00:16:27

And told us a habit obeyed it all if it was revealed all at once, they would have had to apply.

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

But rather than for an Cain

00:16:32--> 00:16:36

gradually segmented over an extended period of time.

00:16:39--> 00:17:01

And what it did is that it built in that faith conviction or the loss of power that made the most power the most important, and his relationship with him the most valuable and most critical in the lives of the companions. And then it's introduced, along with that the basics of some of those universal ethical values.

00:17:03--> 00:17:24

Over 13 years, this was what was taught. And then when the Muslims went to Medina, and they were able to form they built their own medicine and they were able to form a community. The rules and regulations started to be introduced to them, one after another. And in most cases when they were ready, in some cases they have to ask for

00:17:26--> 00:17:34

one example in particular is the prohibition of alcohol, alcoholic beverages, wine.

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

And whatever Shaner shares with wine, that

00:17:40--> 00:17:41

quality of intoxicating.

00:17:43--> 00:18:00

And toxic intoxicants were very popular and Arabian people used to drink them consumed that people were addicted to them. Now some did not come from the beginning, they said, quit stop. I said, in fact, he says that, if the program came in from the get go, he said,

00:18:02--> 00:18:12

abandon adultery and fornication and quit drinking. And don't do this and don't do that. They will have not been able to help.

00:18:13--> 00:18:21

But it came in it. It taught them faith Eman which we're struggling to learn, we're struggling to keep up with our prayers. And

00:18:22--> 00:18:30

it talks about that, but the companions were committed. So they gradually got to the level where they were ready for more.

00:18:32--> 00:18:37

And then when I was revealed, whether it is verses about

00:18:38--> 00:18:42

stealing or about Riba

00:18:43--> 00:19:15

or about drinking, or fornication, any of those verses that would reveal the Sahaba embracing and they applied it immediately or reversed about Egypt, they did not say, Oh, wait a minute, I'm not ready. They did not start arguing with a problem. Somebody was sitting there trying to find a better deal. They did not try to negotiate a better deal on the property. They know what it was from our last panel data. So they immediately avoided submit in our panel, this was their model. And that's why lots of handling data as they obey a must have

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

made them victorious and in no time they were able to change the course of history.

00:19:24--> 00:19:29

we've struggled for the past 25 years over with the same issues over and over again.

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

Maybe we need to discover this process.

00:19:34--> 00:19:39

So back to the example of how intoxicants were made forbidden in Islam.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

Nothing was said about it in the beginning.

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

Until people

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

in Medina, how to community

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

and then the Sahaba Of course notice that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself does not drink

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

And does not behave in a fashion.

00:20:04--> 00:20:11

And they were curious as to what the Islamic ruling would be on this. So they came in as a prophet of Allah.

00:20:13--> 00:20:26

So they came with us, they cannot come and ask to find excuses. No, they came to learn. So they were willing to learn, and they were ready to listen. So lots of data revealed the verse

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

from Surah. Al Gato is an accounting company when they asked you or Mohammed about why toxicants

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

and Mason gamble.

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

Now, we could have said it's hard.

00:20:45--> 00:20:50

But these, whether it's gambling, or drinking, they're very addictive.

00:20:52--> 00:21:16

And people are attached. So the foreign of Texas, so having this gradual process of freeing them from those vices, but thinking about it more can be obscene to them or having a response to that question. There's great sense and harmony in the woman out here, I mean, less. And the court recognizes, and says, Well, my Internet's and some benefits, could be financial.

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

There are some benefits, there is some fun, that goes with that some

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

ways.

00:21:24--> 00:21:28

However, the harm outweighs the benefits.

00:21:29--> 00:21:34

So bear that in mind, you are capable of understanding and you have

00:21:35--> 00:21:41

great sense. And it lasted right there. Now, I'm starting to see

00:21:43--> 00:22:05

the evil side, the bad side of those actions. And then the next step, a verse was revealed in the last panel with Adam told the believers who have developed a great level of attachment and we will talk about how they develop great level of attachment to someone coming in praying the prompts on line so that five times a day, and that unified them with elevated them to a higher level.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

And happiness, someone came and started mixing up the reservation.

00:22:11--> 00:22:16

He prayed while drank so much data revealed. Yeah.

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

Oh, you buddy, do not come to the prayer while drink.

00:22:25--> 00:22:37

So now, there's this conflict, their addiction, that habit that they're used to, and saw that they are used to, and they are more passionate about.

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

So which one comes first summer.

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

So now they minimize their exposure? Or they minimize their contact with this

00:22:50--> 00:22:51

habit.

00:22:52--> 00:22:57

And they don't have a lot of time because we have five daily prayers. When are they going to drink?

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

So we can maybe drink late after?

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

So by the time of Facebook, they're there. Okay.

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

And then finally,

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

after a while, what kind of data reveals?

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

Oh, you believe it? Oh, it was pantalla starts

00:23:18--> 00:23:30

his orders whenever I must have commands of believers to do something or prohibits them from something with the reminder that you are those who believed you remember?

00:23:32--> 00:23:39

You are very special? Oh, you believe in number one major one unsolved one is leverage assuming

00:23:40--> 00:23:41

one

00:23:43--> 00:23:46

and gambling and all the other elements that were mentioned.

00:23:48--> 00:23:51

They are from the acts of Chicago, they're evil from the attitude

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

from the work of the devil fish, so stay away from it.

00:23:58--> 00:24:03

And now that it was made clear to them, that it is from the acts

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

of the devil, they would stay away from

00:24:08--> 00:24:24

what did the Sahaba do? They were ready. You see there was this rehab process that they went through this gradual process that they went through so they were ready. They did not say okay, let's get rid of Okay, let's take the last sip of this Okay, let me just finish my bottles.

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

Oh, maybe I should sell them. No.

00:24:29--> 00:24:35

I said our says in the hanaa in the innovative leadership model are you carrying

00:24:41--> 00:24:47

shape on intends to cause energy between you because of gambling and because of these habits because of drinking

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

and he wants to distract you from the remembrance of Obama and from

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

so are you going to stop? Are you going to quit? Are you going to give it up? I want to entertain

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

At the hyena, we give it up, we give it up the river, there's the city of Medina, the streets of the city of Medina, flew with wine for days, they broke it, they got rid of it.

00:25:13--> 00:25:20

And then after that a loss of power without a prophet Thomas a habit that it is cursed to stay away from it, don't sell it.

00:25:21--> 00:25:29

And there was that reinforcement from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, there was a reminder that a person who drinks will not enter Paradise,

00:25:31--> 00:25:42

an alcoholic will not enter Paradise, and those who give it up in this life, they will drink it into here after it will taste much better, and that will not intoxicated or cause them to lose

00:25:44--> 00:25:45

their judgment.

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

This is how the family kept reinforcing

00:25:50--> 00:26:04

this. And it's a common word free from this habit. This is the rehab process that the program introduces. And it works because it first deals and tackles the basis of any habit changing

00:26:06--> 00:26:13

technique, which is you have to believe in it, you have to have the desire for it. I say this master wants to make use of those who listen and follow the

00:26:28--> 00:26:36

dear brothers and sisters, the point is that just like the working turtles have a back then it would work for us.

00:26:38--> 00:26:39

If we are willing

00:26:40--> 00:27:06

to follow the organic method, if we are willing to listen and obey, if we're willing to go through this gradual process of growth, spiritual growth, you see, we continue to have all kinds of conflicts in our lives, we continue to have all kinds of issues. And we continue to struggle, because we have not yet discovered this process, or we are not willing to go through.

00:27:09--> 00:27:24

If we continue to do this, if we continue to act in this fashion, when we say something, and we act totally different, we are not going to appeal to people, we're not going to attract people to Islam, nor are we going to see any happiness or peace in our lives.

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

And I tell you in the process, we are going to lose the next generation.

00:27:31--> 00:27:35

Because these kind of double standards, turn them off, throw them away from them.

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

We are having all kinds of problems and issues, people violating each other's rights, people robbing one another Muslims violating each other's rights,

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

Muslim abusing family members.

00:27:54--> 00:28:05

And then when you look at it, it all has to do with the failure to follow this process. So in short, starting from my next hotel, we are going to take one

00:28:06--> 00:28:19

issue and one point at a time and talk about CMOS have handled it for acid. And if you want to avoid the greatest of sense, Allah Subhana Allah will forgive their sins, the minor ones

00:28:21--> 00:28:22

look at for accuracy.

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

And also how long the data will bless you in your lives.

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

We'll start with that.

00:28:31--> 00:28:40

Some of the major says that we are engaging and we need to understand and we need to stay away from them and we need to give it up.

00:28:42--> 00:28:50

So let us spread brothers and sisters make this intention to follow this gradual process sincerely and for the sake of Allah

00:28:51--> 00:28:54

and allow them to transform us and changes.

00:28:57--> 00:29:00

Made you and I are those who listen and follow the

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

brothers and sisters I must recognize

00:29:04--> 00:29:05

before we

00:29:11--> 00:29:12

bring it to your attention

00:29:14--> 00:29:36

that in this community, we have some extraordinary brothers and sisters, that no matter how many times we call upon them, they come and they respond positively. Two or three weeks ago, I had I made the announcement that we want to get rid of the depths of this mystery.

00:29:38--> 00:29:49

And we asked for 24 people to come forward with $50,000 each whether it's from them or someone else or they you know,

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

get together with some some of their family members or friends and give this money to them to the question 24 people will take

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

The $1.2 million and how can it be that we have gotten some response from some people? We're down to 19. Now,

00:30:09--> 00:30:29

those of you who are not aware of this, again, we present you with this opportunity. And for those five individuals who came forward and said that we are willing to take care of this, I asked a lot of contacts, let's list their families. And I asked lots of how to take care of their deaths and to take care of their problems in this life and in the

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

long

00:30:36--> 00:30:39

run is a big part of it will be advancing will

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

allow them

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

to determine the level

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

of the law in the law.

00:30:56--> 00:30:56

You here

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

Welcome sir.
