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

Learn to love yourselves, my brothers and sisters.

00:00:03--> 00:00:56

When you look in the mirror, you need to love what Allah has made you like be appreciative of the gift of Allah. This is what Islam teaches us. And this evening we are talking about Islam. We're talking about togetherness. And this is why I started this way to say I am your brother. Do you feel that? Do you feel the connection? Well, I do. I may see you and I see others and I saw so many people, even yesterday and today and every day and we're lucky I try my best to feel this connection and I'm here to share it with you because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, amin de Falco sama de oro de walk de la LC, Nitin Kumar, Nico, in Nafisa, Nicola de Lille Alimi, indeed from His Signs is that he

00:00:56--> 00:01:18

has created the heavens and the earth, and the differences in your colors, your races as well as your languages. It's a sign of the Almighty His mercy, his greatness, it's not a sign for us to become people who dislike and detest one another. And this is why he caps the verse by saying this is indeed

00:01:19--> 00:01:55

these are indeed signs lessons for those who know for those who have knowledge for those who would like to understand and if you look at Surah 200, again, Allah makes mention of the origin of man, and he tells us You should not hate one another dislike one another based on your race based on for example, the tribe you come from the people you belong to, because ultimately you're all one. Allah says why he made us different colors, races, shapes, sizes, identity, etc. Let me mention the verse and then we talk about it a little bit more.

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

Yeah.

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

in Kona

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

Koo

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

Kumba Illa Lita.

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

Allah says oh people, we have created you from a single male and female

00:02:25--> 00:03:10

and we have made you into tribes and people we have made you into different people, nations, tribes, etc. In order that you recognize one another. Today you look at me and you know who I am. Why? Because the mercy of Allah He made me different from you. Imagine I can see people Mashallah that I recognize because I know their features have been made different as a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How many times have you heard me give you the example of the number plate of a vehicle which is necessitated because the vehicles look all the same. So if we all had to look exactly like who we consider the model who's the prettiest or the most beautiful or the most handsome on Earth, we would

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

need number plates to handle law.
