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

Salam Alaikum, surprise, surprise, yes, I saw the lyrics of a song someone sent me. And I was quite shocked, actually, to see that little children as young as seven and eight are learning the song that speaks about sex, and the organs of male and female, and how they're used and size of the organs and so on, and what happens and what they will do. And the words used colloquial their slang terminology that is actually of a level that those who believe in the Almighty and the last day and agree and believe in answerability, to the Almighty, the day of reckoning, would definitely feel that it does not meet their morals and values, but it's out there. I think even those who are

00:00:51--> 00:01:32

atheist, even those who don't believe in God, who hold a little bit of moral and morals and values, would actually agree that we need to somehow get a message across to the people in the music industry, to come up with good words and good songs that promote values and morals, and not just speak about the organs of males or females. People say you're objectifying women. Well, women sometimes are objectifying men. You speak about the size of organs to little children, how could you do that? And another thing is, people might say, Well, why are the children listening to it? And why are they doing? You know that things out there today, everyone has a phone, and everyone is going to

00:01:32--> 00:02:16

listen and what's happening? We're trying to protect the children from pedophilia. We want to protect the women from being abused. And at the same time, we're releasing things that make them so inquisitive, that at the age of eight, if they were to hear something, the legal age of actually doing anything from a secular perspective is mostly 18. In some cases, 2021. So what's going to happen in these years? Do we really think we're protecting our children? I call on the people of other faiths as well, to comment about this. What do you think? How do you? What do you believe about morals I'm sure we share a lot in common to say we need to protect our children, our families,

00:02:16--> 00:02:58

our societies, and communities, these type of words, we can do much, much better. And I pray that we do much better. Because Where are we heading? it's going to get worse as time passes. If we don't comment about it. I'm not want to even comment. But this thing was brought to my attention. I was shocked. I had to confirm, are you sure these are lyrics of a song? Yes. And then there's little children singing along and there are challenges on tik tok and Instagram and everywhere else, where innocent kids and teenagers, you know, not yet even the age of majority are already trying things out and saying things and so Panama, you know, may Allah protect us, I really am saddened by this. I

00:02:58--> 00:03:46

don't mean to attack anyone. But I want to highlight the concern that I have, as a parent, as a believer, as a person who really would like to see goodness for men and women, for our children. We want to see them grow with good morals and values, respecting each other respecting people of other races, other nationalities, other faiths, whatever they may be, we need this mutual understanding and respect. I think even those who don't believe in God Almighty, would probably agree if they hold values and morals high that we need to do something about this in a positive way. So this was just a video to highlight the issue. We know what's going on sometimes. And we're saddened by it, we

00:03:46--> 00:04:29

believe you could have done much better than this much better than this. Because Subhanallah I know, popularity comes sometimes when people compromise certain things. So remove your clothes, you become famous, you make a lot of money. That's nudity, you might say it's your right, but think of what's going on. People decided we want to liberate women by enslaving them, by making them feel you have to do this for popularity, you're behind has to be a certain size, your breasts have to be a certain size in order to be popular and acceptable, once that your face has to look a specific way in order for you to be acceptable. What's that? That's where religion comes in and says, Hey, be happy with

00:04:29--> 00:04:37

who you are. What do you have? So what is that? I haven't answered it. You can answer it in the comments.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

And the same applies to males. You know, we talked about not talking about women and their size. Why do we talk about men and their size? And why do we talk about these things that somehow Allah? You know, it's shocking. It's shocking. We've, for me, I wouldn't have believed I was going to address a matter of this nature A few years ago, but

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

I think we just crossed a certain line where I had to address it. Let's not pretend like people don't know what I'm talking about, we all know, including the children, including little kids know exactly what I'm talking about. So I pray that the almighty Grant has goodness and guidance and give us contentment and happiness, and truly help us to protect the rights of the women, the children, the men, the downtrodden, the weak, and the people of all races, no matter where they're from. And may the almighty help us to uphold beautiful high values and morals such that when we sing songs, or whatever it may be, it's always encouraging people to do good, and upholding the best of values in

00:05:45--> 00:06:29

that. I pray also that the almighty protect us. My address to those in the music industry, or my little request, should I say, I wouldn't like to say challenge. But a little request to the music industry is please can we have those songs or lyrics that are filled with goodness, morals, values, respect of the opposite sex, respect of the women, respect of men, respect of children, and parents and the communities and families and people across the globe, rather than becoming so vulgar that nearly every song that comes from certain angles

00:06:30--> 00:07:12

are just filled with VAT, which is so vulgar, so immoral, and the worst part of it is, it's becoming more and more, it's becoming worse, actually, it's more and more vulgar, more and more abusive, filled with words that are so bad that it's, it seems to some that it's actually pornographic, to read it, to read it. So imagine singing it and it's being repeated all night. They're listening to it in their ears, little kids, and their, it's their bedtime song. Come on, come on. May Allah Subhana, Allah, Allah protect us all. And this is why we say my brothers, my sisters, those of us who believe in Allah, and the last day, protect your ears from things like these, because we're

00:07:12--> 00:07:40

likely it will impact your mind, it will impact your your character, your conduct, it also impacts the way you look at the opposite sex, the way you look at men, the way you look at women, the way you look at children, it all has an impact. So I think, you know, the P those in authority need to think about what limits and lines we can actually set in order to perhaps govern the way lyrics should go.

00:07:41--> 00:08:22

Some might think I sound foolish, and I shouldn't say it, I believe it was my duty just to express a view. And I'm free to express it as a believer, a believing male, I think we can do much, much better. And I think it was my duty to let my children know those who look up to me that look, we share even people with other faiths some those who don't have faith as well. You know, the the the atheists and so on, I'm sure those who hold high morals and values would agree with what I've said today, that we're just pushing it a bit too much. It's getting a little bit, you know, very, it's getting cringy actually, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all zakum Allah Hey, thank you for

00:08:22--> 00:08:26

listening. Only Allah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
