Have 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 an annoying Do you know this and I know this, so that makes even greater, so give generously and Allah azza wa jal give you even more

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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa I can't. So how are you guys doing? I recently came across a video where Joe Rogan is having a discussion with a UFC middleweight contender Sean Strickland and Sean Strickland is giving his anecdotal experience of his experience with some Muslim fighters maybe from Chechnya, Dagestan or something like this in his gym. Let's take a look at the clip and come back and respond in kind I make fun of everybody but wasn't

00:01:01--> 00:01:32

so there was a guy named Albert the raw have a lot of muscles at the gym. Love these guys. So one day Albert Dr comes up to me and he was like, hey, Shawn, can I talk to you guys and show me a movie? Like Alright, sure I'll be your wrestling dummy free and all these Muslims come in the cage. But we didn't guard what position we in here outbreak is like no, no, no, no. This is a delta Township. Golf puts his hand on my like, Muslim dudes are super touchy. They're friendly, super friendly guys. So odd, especially because of religion. So it's like Shan Shan Shan in my country. I cannot be friends with you. I'm talking about he's like to say things about Islam pretty much saying

00:01:32--> 00:01:50

I cannot be friends with you. Because what you say about Islam, I've never imagined that for the Jews. Christian. Scientology isn't for everybody. So after that, after you cross my leg and rub my head a little bit, I was like, could you lay off his now what this clip shows us is that the importance of establishing great boundaries. I've been watching Joe Rogan

00:01:51--> 00:02:30

for some time, and I think many of you have as well. And we've seen his attitudes change and shift right towards Islam and Muslims over the last half decade. And it's very this shows you that when we as the Muslim community, show other people, other communities, other influences, whatever it may be, what our red lines are, then people eventually respect those red lines, we are a force to be reckoned with. Remember, we are a quarter of the world's population going to be a third of the world's population by the end of the century, according to Pew Research. So yes, we are a force to be reckoned with people want to have a proper functional life in this in this globalized world. It

00:02:30--> 00:03:14

makes sense for them to respect our boundaries, and that's what we've achieved here. That's why I respect those guys that done what they've done with Sean Strickland. And in fact, this is exactly the Islamic position. You know, you cannot be a friend with somebody who attacks the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem, and who be smashes the sacred symbols of Islam. It's kind of like what Malcolm X said famously said that a man who falls for or stands for nothing a man who stands for nothing will fall for anything. You see a man with no boundaries. A community with no boundaries or people with no boundaries are no people at all. And the Quran is completely filled with eight

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

verses which indicate the importance of mighty mightiness and self dignity. For example, yah yah, yah, yah, Latina m&r may attend them and Camilla TEDWomen comandi Neva Sophia Tila who become in your head boom where you have Bona as the Latin Allah Mina is that in Anil Katharina Yuja hidden if you submit a light, whether you have phone Aloma tele him, that Oh, you who believe if you go back on your heels and apostate, then I'll replace you with the people who are mighty with the mighty with the disbelievers humble with the believers, that they struggle in the path of Allah and they don't care about the blame of the blamers. They don't care too much about these people what they're

00:03:57--> 00:04:12

going to say or what these guys we're not trying, we're not here to appease the other communities like that. And in fact, the more you try and appease and placate and acquiesce to other communities, and other people, the more they will see you as

00:04:13--> 00:04:57

a lacking in dignity of someone that they can play around with. So we must maintain our dignity as the Muslim community as the Quran states regards to this kind of very important thing. Which famous IRA which, which Allah says, Let Taiji to home and you've known a biller, he will Yomi laughs at you. I doona man had the Lucha Wallis Hola. You will not find somebody? Yes, who really believes in Allah and the Last Day being so loving with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even if well oh, can wherever I've been at home I was quite at home I'll shout out to him, even if there were their fathers or their brothers or their extended families, whatever. Gandhi that's it you will not

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

find you will not find it. If you're truly you

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

Yeah, believe in Allah, His Messenger, someone who's opposing that. Yeah, you cannot be their friend and start loving them and showing them it's not dour. That's not how to be a proper dignified person Islamic tradition. We don't care what you think of us. We don't care. If you don't like that. We don't really care about that. You know what I mean? We've got our own thing going on. If you respect us and you respect the Muslim community, yeah, we will return that energy that positive energy positive energy, but if you disrespect the Muslim community, yeah, we will disrespect you simple as that in Tesaro Mina for in and that's haram income. Kemet, Hassan. That Noah, he said that if you're

00:05:34--> 00:06:09

going to make fun of us, we're going to make fun of you. Like you make fun of us. So if you make fun of us, yeah. If you disrespect us, if you disrespect the Holy Prophet Muhammad wa salam, you disrespect Islam. Now you're disrespecting us. We don't want to be your friend. We're not on that kind of thing. I'm not interested. But if you want to be respectful, then yeah, we're going to be respectful to you as well. That is the Islamic position on the matter was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to who ever built a mosque for Allah, Allah were built in a similar house in Jannah. And we know the great reward that

00:06:09--> 00:06:26

will not only be gained but rather, will fill your grave after your death. Whenever someone prays that whenever someone gives shahada in the masjid whenever someone learns something in the masjid, yes, that will be something that you will have on your scale.
