00:00:05--> 00:00:32

Are you? Are you wasting your time on social media again, your brothers and sisters in Islam net from Norway are establishing a masjid a Dawa center. Establishing a masjid to convey the message of Islam is one of the best deeds a Muslim can do. There's a huge need for annoying, you know this and I know this. So that makes the ruling even greater. So give generously and Allah azza wa jal give you even more.

00:00:33--> 00:01:14

So if you want to go to Allah cattle, How're you guys doing? I'm here in Oslo, in Norway, in a tour that we're doing here in Scandinavia to see whether the sentiments that we're seeing with the Islamophobic elements, the anti Islamic elements burning the Quran, Hassan, which has been covered all over international news is wide or are widely shared among the public the populace here, in, for example, Scandinavian regions. So we're gonna be asking people what they think about that particular action, whether they're supportive, so we can see whether or not this is a representation of the main kind of opinion here in Scandinavia. I can ask a question. We're just an experiment here. And

00:01:14--> 00:01:55

Oslo Yes. We're just asking people members of the public. Have you seen on the news in Scandinavia and Sweden and other parts of the world? This is a fad here in Scandinavia now some individuals coming and burning the holy books, the Muslims, like the Quran, and so on. Okay, what do you think of the idea of burning a holy book? Without having given that much thought? I don't think you should burn any books spread as bad. Okay. Yeah, hold yourself? I don't know. Maybe bad? I think it's unnecessary to if it's not your religion, then why would you do something hateful towards others? It's unnecessary. Why would you burn a book? Even if you don't agree with religion? It's just let

00:01:55--> 00:02:38

people believe. Well, I mean, people have their own freedom for their own religion. And I think they should have that in peace. It's not anyone's business what other people believe. So if someone if someone wants to go against what I believe I would feel that was, that's not good. So yeah. My I don't think people should judge each other based on religion, color, anything. So yeah, I think we should just coexist in peace. People are not interested in this kind of thing. And they're not interested in trying to, you know, hurt Muslim feelings, as she said, What's the point of doing something which is going to enrage the community of, of people in the country? What's the point of

00:02:38--> 00:03:18

it, it doesn't make any sense at all. And so once again, sometimes we can get the wrong impression that the ideas of a few people say in Scandinavia or so on, or any other part of the world is representative of the bulk of people, which it isn't here, we're seeing firsthand why in order for this kind of project to continue, for us to continue showing, showcasing this to, to outreaching, to people to speaking to them by slammed having these genuine and authentic conversations, then yes, we need to support the dollar project here in Norway and the rest of Scandinavia, I'm giving you an opportunity and myself to click the link below, where you can actually monetarily help out to the

00:03:18--> 00:03:52

cause. And I would say, Do not miss on this opportunity. It's a very important one. Some people make the argument that, for example, they will say this is actually an expression of freedom of speech and expression. Do you think this is an appropriate way of manifesting freedom speech and expression? No. In Norway, we have a thing that if you don't have anything nice to say that you shouldn't say it out loud? I think that's yes, you should have the freedom of speech. But if it's hurtful to other people, what's the point of saying it? You know, yes. I mean, from their perspective, the argument they would say is that, well, the reason why they're doing it is because

00:03:52--> 00:04:29

they think there's a Muslim, a credible Muslim threat in Norway, that needs to be resisted, and challenged. And so we have to burn their holy books, because that's where they get their ideas, they will say, of all these kinds of terroristic ideas and so on, do you think this is a legitimate argument? No, no, I will not support it. No, yes. I don't really see it as a threat. So yeah, yes. And you think that your opinion is representative of the majority of Norwegians? Or do you think that Norwegians would think actually we should burn the boat because we should have, you know, this is something we should challenge and we should take advantage of our freedom expression? What kind

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

of opinion Do you think majority of your friends and family would have? They will say the same as me? Yeah. So so it's not representative, these people who are doing this off the majority of people that you know, no, no, I think they will have the same opinion as me. Yes. Like, if you if you're not engaged in originals, just don't care about it. Just don't do nothing. Why would you actually use your own time and resources to first get the book and then burn it for no real benefit?

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

So there you have it, folks, we've seen without a shadow of a doubt, the majority of people that I've seen, in fact, all of them that we've discussed with have said that they don't think this is a necessary thing, don't think is a good thing. In fact, the statistics that'd be done in a matter, and the people who actually support this is a very, very, you know, fringe minority, you can say support the action that not only they should be given the right to burn the book, whether there is an appropriate action in the first place. Both steps are required in order for the action to be supported. And those who actually support this action in that manner, may be a fringe minority of

00:05:29--> 00:06:02

the people in this country. With that being said, guys, I think now it's time to realize that when you consider that the biggest Masjid in Dallas center, the biggest center for Muslim, if you'd like education, in the entire region of Scandinavia is being constructed. And I've seen the extensions themselves, they are putting the money in the right place, and physical and tangible resources, and that these kinds of programs can be done. outreach programs can be done training programs can be done. The mosque is there for the Muslim community that has programs to young people, all of that stuff is there. Now I think it's high time we realize that we need to contribute to this to for our

00:06:02--> 00:06:38

survival, quite frankly, in this in these countries in the West for our continued existence so that we can normalize Islam and Muslim you know, being in these kinds of places and you must click and don't be afraid that if you give to the sake of Allah subhanaw taala that you will be depreciated in South Africa because the prophets assalam said that mana Casa Amala masala cotton that money does not depreciate with giving charity. So now it's time to click on the link below and go ahead and donate to this cause and you'll see the fruits and our generation Sharla and the generations to come. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Brothers and sisters, let me introduce you to

00:06:38--> 00:07:22

Norway. This is a European country where the vast majority of people have become religious, or 200,000. Muslims have a population of about 5 million, and most of these 200,000 Muslims have no idea how to explain Islam to their non Muslim friends and neighbors. But that needs to change a Lawson His Messenger to call people to eternal success. And that is why Muslims in Norway are now establishing a masjid and our center to enhance the Norwegian Dawa. What they cannot do this alone, we need to support them. If you donate to this cause you will inshallah reap the rewards 1000s of Muslims coming back to Islam and many of those who become white and invite Islam. You will share in
