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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah

00:00:11--> 00:00:28

is a very beautiful sight May Allah subhanho wa Taala reward you all and bless you all. Shall I would like to start with the hadith of love my lives I love and I love this Hadith, especially because there's a lot of people here that I've never seen before the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he says in the authentic hadith, he says none of you will enter Paradise until you believe.

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

Then he said and none of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself. Then he says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaking to the Sahaba he says to them, Shall I tell you something that if you were to do with it will increase the love amongst you? I said yes our Prophet of Allah tell us he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says he says give Salaam to one another. So inshallah tala there's a lot of brothers here you probably have never seen before. If I can kindly ask everyone to stand up inshallah. And give salam to someone that they don't know inshallah Allah to fulfill the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, give salam to someone you

00:01:01--> 00:01:05

don't know Introduce yourself. The sisters can also do the same.

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

Spell Alhamdulillah

00:01:09--> 00:01:19

wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah or praises to Allah subhanho wa Taala and within Peace and blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:22--> 00:01:26

So my brothers and sisters I'm sure most of you are aware of

00:01:28--> 00:01:33

the crimes that took place last Saturday night or last Saturday night.

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

in which two Muslim brothers were killed, shot dead.

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

One of them was 21 years of age he was shot in his car and then burnt

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

and the other brother was not sure what his age was.

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

But he was shot he was a

00:01:54--> 00:02:03

he was the husband and the father to be and his friend was also shot with him. I'm not sure the condition of his friend but he died

00:02:07--> 00:02:11

and unfortunately these incidents are somewhat becoming common.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

These are becoming common.

00:02:18--> 00:02:22

And I've thought deeply about how I want to work tonight because

00:02:29--> 00:02:32

my brother's there's nothing unreasonable about Jay Hillier

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

in any way, shape, or form.

00:02:38--> 00:02:44

You have to understand as Muslims, we are to love what Allah loves, and to hate what Allah hates.

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

Allah hates journey my brothers.

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

Allah hates arrogance.

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

Allah hates giver

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

and Allah hates crime.

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

Allah hates corruption

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

and the laws oh my god hates murder

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

there's been lots of murders

00:03:09--> 00:03:10


00:03:12--> 00:03:13

we've lost count

00:03:15--> 00:03:27

and some some people will feel brother one law that person is better off being in the ground it's better for the community. You don't know what this guy did and, and probably to some extent there's some truth to that.

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

And some people will probably genuinely innocent and didn't deserve to die whatever the case is.

00:03:35--> 00:03:39

Understand that Allah azza wa jal will deal with every single person.

00:03:41--> 00:03:57

This this ignorance this this foolishness amongst and this is the thing my brothers, especially the young ones I want you to understand shaitan will stop at nothing and shaped on his ultimate goal is to take you to a

00:03:58--> 00:04:47

way away, go for straight Cofer shaitan wants you to make good for then making your final about jahannam May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So shaitan because shaitan has been around for a long time. shaitan decorates evilness with some sort of prestage you see, so he surrounds genlock this this this foolishness this, this corruption this so called wala, I'm trying to avoid words that even trigger some sort of prestige in our minds. You know, even the word gangster I can't stand that because for some people, it has a it has some sort of like a positive. You know that? Well it is a you know that you know he's a gangster. And if I could use words, but because I'm in the masjid

00:04:47--> 00:04:57

after respect this place, but Allah knows what what, what sort of words I would have used. You know, even this word gangster is filthy. It's rubbish. It's trash.

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


00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Tom starts this gentle life with some sort of prestige, you know, and this is a new started off in the 60s started off before that, with my fears and things like this, where it's always you know, there was some sort of code some sort of code and conduct that that you know, that these people have j Lee has somewhat lived by.

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

But it was origin

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

and it all leads to eventually go for.

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

So they first start off by not, you know,

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

not dealing with drugs, you know, ripping off from from the rich giving to the poor, this sort of Robin Hood style. And then it goes from that and then it went to you know, crimes, but we only attacked the people that we assume actually deserve it. And then from there, it started to be drugs. But when I started with drugs, you don't sell to your own kind. And then from drugs, it went to prostitution, but obviously we don't prostitute and women, this is the nonsense. This is the trash and the rubbish that shaitan and the

00:06:01--> 00:06:29

and the army of shaitan This is the stuff that they introduced and then obviously Hollywood amplified it and things of this nature, but shaitan walks you through so there are things that you now as a good boy, as a good man, you start off you say, you know what, if I ever did that by the wall, I wouldn't do this and I wouldn't do that. That's now but shaitan will make you walk through things until eventually you get to a point where there is no return. And Allah is the hero growing up, Brother You don't attack a man if he's with his family.

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

You don't punch a man in the face if he wears glasses. Do you guys remember that one?

00:06:37--> 00:06:44

The young boys don't even remember that if someone was glasses back in the locker I remember when I was a kid, you can punch him because that was considered the ad.

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

Like that's a bad goal. The guy wears glasses, you know?

00:06:51--> 00:07:03

And then it was the sick and one like this is the sickness of this life. That you know what brother look as long as you know it's it's it's Muslim against non Muslim crime. Almost like as if that that's somewhat justified.

00:07:04--> 00:07:24

Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he wasn't sent down as a mercy to all of humanity. But these are shaitan works. And then he became Muslim, a Muslim crime. And then he was like, you know, you know, like even brothers to me now while our brother, you know, do you remember the days when you used to pick a parka with a punch on with our problems? Yeah, brother that was just as terrible.

00:07:27--> 00:07:36

Like, we've sunk so low, that we actually think back to a lesser, harmful time. I think that that was better.

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

And this is

00:07:40--> 00:07:44

this is shaitan until eventually now Muslims kill Muslims.

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

And there is no limit anymore.

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

They've shot people in front of their kids further their wives forever Masjid

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

in the month of Ramadan,

00:08:00--> 00:08:03

walked into someone's house and shot him while he was in the bed.

00:08:07--> 00:08:16

And everyone feels like to some degree it's justifiable Well, now my brother's a law will hold accountable every single person.

00:08:18--> 00:08:24

And what's even more sickening, is some people filter through the day in the back and justify it.

00:08:25--> 00:08:50

That well I look, Brother, you know that in Islam, there's a life for a life that if someone kills my brother, this is they'll become this is extremely dangerous, that look, brother, if someone kills my brother, that therefore I can take matters into my own hands, and then therefore I can find out who killed these who killed my brother and I can take his life and actually believe that I'm free with Allah.

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

And what's worse is the use Diem

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

to justify it.

00:09:01--> 00:09:10

never in the history of Islam and no way in the Sharia, does the deen of Allah allow any citizen to take matters into his own hands ever?

00:09:13--> 00:09:16

The sick and twisted understanding of Sharia and the deen of Allah,

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

this j Li and that's in our minds now.

00:09:21--> 00:09:29

That because you took the life of my brother therefore, because Allah says no Quran, a tooth for tooth under eye for an eye and a life for a life. How do you?

00:09:30--> 00:09:39

How do you make the fear of God and according to your own whims and your own desires and your own journal? I tried to justify one of the worst sins he could possibly commit.

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

Yes, do we have a tooth for tooth and an eye for an eye? Yes. But he judges that my brothers

00:09:49--> 00:09:55

in Islam, in an Islamic State in a Sharia, you take your situation to a judge.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

The person is tried

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

Then if found guilty in a court, where he is allowed,

00:10:05--> 00:10:21

a trial is allowed. He is allowed to explain himself evidences, you know, evidence is displayed. And then if the judge finds the men guilty of murder, then the judge hence to the family the options

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

would you prefer Blood Money?

00:10:25--> 00:10:36

Do you prefer a life for a life? Or the ultimate of course is do you choose to forgive? But if you choose a life for a life, you don't take his life.

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

The judge executed this.

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

So now Muslims feel like you know what my brother I can take matters into my own hand, because while I heard a hadith

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

This is recklessness.

00:10:54--> 00:10:57

This is recklessness.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

And by allowing my brothers this coming a day,

00:11:02--> 00:11:04

a day that is 50,000 years long.

00:11:08--> 00:11:19

A day that is 50,000 years long. One day with Allah is equivalent to 1000 years of our time.

00:11:24--> 00:11:43

And on this day, my brothers, every single person will be held accountable for everything they uttered for everything they looked at, for every action that they did. And if you think you're going to be okay. prophets and messengers, were terrified, are terrified of this day.

00:11:47--> 00:11:59

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was walking with a companion, and in front of them was two animals, and they were fighting. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says to the Sahabi, he says to him,

00:12:00--> 00:12:08

he says him, do you know what they're fighting about? animals. So the companion system, no prophet Allah had on the animals.

00:12:10--> 00:12:18

He system by Allah, Allah knows what they're fighting about. And on the Day of Judgment, Allah will bring justice between them.

00:12:22--> 00:12:23


00:12:24--> 00:12:30

he's telling him, Allah knows why they fighting. And on the Day of Judgment, Allah will bring justice between them.

00:12:33--> 00:12:50

That if a horned animal harmed an animal that didn't have horns, of the Day of Judgment, Allah azza wa jal is going to remove the horns from the horn, the animal, placed them on the animal that didn't have horns. And then a law will allow that and who to take its rights back.

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

And such is that they

00:12:57--> 00:13:07

and brothers feel like well, I you know, we can walk around the streets or we can run amok and worse, justify the fifth, justify the crimes through Diem

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

brothers that are selling drugs on the streets, and then they come to me off and I want my heart.

00:13:19--> 00:13:26

He wants his heart. He wants his rights, he's selling drugs, him, he's selling drugs, and he was ripped off.

00:13:28--> 00:13:34

And now he wants to pursue the money that he was ripped off and genuinely believes that he can kill him.

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

Because then is about heart and bottle.

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

This is a mockery of Dean.

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

This is a mockery of Dean

00:13:47--> 00:13:56

and the person that takes the life of someone my brother's one law, no talk will ever do justice. Do you know what it means to take the life of someone

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

to have someone's blood on your hands?

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he spoke about two Muslims killing each other.

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

He was speaking about a specific scenario and he said

00:14:21--> 00:14:25

the murderer and the murdered are both going to jahannam.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

So the Sahaba were amazed.

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

They said a prophet of Allah the murderer, we understand. But the murdered

00:14:36--> 00:14:44

he said the murdered had an equal intention to kill the murderer. It's just that the murderer got to him before the other one did. They're both going to gentlemen.

00:14:50--> 00:14:53

To take the life of someone is a direct challenge to Allah.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Direct challenge

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

with Allah azza wa jal No I didn't want to make this my topic to be honest with you.

00:15:06--> 00:15:11

This community is fed up and I'm sure all of you he would agree, this community is fed up.

00:15:12--> 00:15:32

Well, I'm sick and tired of attending these. I love attending funerals normal funerals, so much ushered in. But I'm sick and tired Wallah so many times I've taken an oath that I will never ever go to another funeral where someone is killed or murdered over nonsense like this. But always one reason or another My arm is twisted and I end up going

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

you get to a funeral

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

and you see a group of people

00:15:41--> 00:15:46

and then when there's a retaliation made I go to the other guy's funeral and I see half of the same people that were there at the other funeral

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

How embarrassing is this?

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

Well, I why he got to a funeral now and just the heads the attitude

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

that gives her

00:16:03--> 00:16:07

the display of arrogance.

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

You know what's worse than murder?

00:16:22--> 00:16:23


00:16:26--> 00:16:30

there are some bad crimes and bad scenes that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he spoke about.

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

Deep intensively.

00:16:35--> 00:16:41

Like for instance, like think of Xena, right? Think of Xena think of murder, think of fifth.

00:16:43--> 00:17:06

But Eve like you never find that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam like gives a threshold to it, you know? Like you never he or anyone that commits you know, like anyone that kills five or six people that his punishment none and a heinous murder. We understand Xena adultery, we understand. But when the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam spoke about Kibera and he spoke about arrogance, you know what he says?

00:17:09--> 00:17:19

And you see it, you see it in people's walk in people's talk in people's clothing. In the way we just, I see it man.

00:17:22--> 00:17:23


00:17:24--> 00:17:29

the Prophet says anyone with an atom's weight of Kabbalah how much what's the threshold?

00:17:31--> 00:17:56

What's the threshold? He didn't say anyone that kills two people, three people. 10 people. He didn't say anyone that commits adultery once or twice. No, no, no, no. Anyone with an atom's weight of Kibera. What's an atom can see with the human eye, cannot see it with the human eye. He says sallallahu alayhi salam, anyone with an atom's weight of pride? He says Never mind seeing paradise. He'll never smell its fragrance.

00:18:01--> 00:18:07

Allah mentions a bad rough man. They are the ones who when they walk on the earth, they walk

00:18:08--> 00:18:09


00:18:13--> 00:18:14

They walk What?

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

humbly? Anyway,

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

we're all fed up.

00:18:21--> 00:18:39

And brothers always come and talk to me brother in law, this has to stop this has to stop this has to stop. And there's multiple problems in the community. If it's not murder, it's Zina. If it's not Xena. It's husbands and wives cheating if it's not husbands and wives street brother there's the flaws and mistakes and they're everywhere. What's the solution?

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

What's the solution? My brother's

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

what's the solution? My sisters

00:18:49--> 00:18:53

because everyone's waiting for the next man to do something about it.

00:18:54--> 00:19:12

And he may be a very good person he now and you're thinking about our motors. I know what you're talking about. I don't know anyone that's ever murdered someone and you know, it's just these bad boys that are. I used to think like this to her. I've been through all of the emotions I've been through. I've been through you know what, brother, let them kill each other, let them clean each other up. You know, I've been through that phase.

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

Reality is anything and everything that they do harms us directly. We all suffer. No one wins in this.

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

And as a community, whether we like it or not, we have to care.

00:19:28--> 00:19:35

Because if we don't unite and if we don't come together and if we don't stand united against these things, things are only going to get

00:19:36--> 00:19:37


00:19:39--> 00:19:40

the what's the solution?

00:19:43--> 00:19:52

Because let me confess from the onset Now, let me confess from the onset, that yes, I genuinely believe that the machines are not doing enough.

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

And I believe that the data is like myself. I'm not doing enough.

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

And I believe

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

I massage it and our stomach institutions are not doing enough

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

I'm prepared to say this

00:20:10--> 00:20:14

if you're prepared to told me that you also are not doing enough,

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

we've come to a point where we have freed ourselves from responsibilities

00:20:22--> 00:20:45

that these bad things that are happening out there that this is for that this is for the Musharraf defeat, this is for the organizations to fix. And the reality is that the dramas and the situation that's happening outside is far greater than any one share far greater than anyone, Majid far greater than any day. It's gonna take a whole community to fix the problems that we have.

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

as Muslims, we don't have the luxury

00:20:51--> 00:21:00

to see wrong. And so one of us can often do with me, man, let someone else go clean it up. We don't have that right. We don't have that privilege.

00:21:02--> 00:21:10

What's happening outside on the streets and the future of our children, my brothers is the responsibility upon every shoulder that's sitting in this machine.

00:21:15--> 00:21:21

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, He who's not concerned with the affairs of the Muslims,

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

is what

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

he says is not from us.

00:21:29--> 00:21:35

He is not concerned with the affairs of the Muslims. He's not from

00:21:41--> 00:21:57

every single one of us is responsible. And every single one of us has a job and by Allah, like the murderer, Allah is gonna question him, every single one of us is going to be questioned on the Day of Judgment. You seen what was happening? What did you do about it?

00:22:03--> 00:22:27

Allah says in the Quran, quantum hydro matin, Adi Jacqueline, nurse, what an amazing verse. Allah Jalla Jalla Allah says in the Quran, that you are Muslims, this owner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kuntum You are the greatest nation that was ever sent out to humanity going to hire a woman or digitally nurse? Why? Because your name is Ahmed.

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

Your name is Mustafa.

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

Why? Because you got a Louis Vuitton cap. What made us so unique and special?

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

What made us special my brothers

00:22:41--> 00:22:45

my sisters what has made us special we've forgotten why we forgotten.

00:22:47--> 00:23:02

We think that we've been created so that I can live or pray and fast and do what I have to do. But then try and make this dunya my Jana and they down with a you know what, though? You're not that's what that's what the aim is we're all trying to live the American dream.

00:23:05--> 00:23:15

Have a nice house that's paid off. And this isn't haraam Just Say No Well I'm not saying this is wrong, but deep down this is my drive this is my ambition This is what I want.

00:23:16--> 00:23:27

I have a most hectic double storey house paid off and if it can be a duplex site then my head when my son gets married and shall I'll make a duplex and put a granny flat in the back of that one and a granny flat in the back of that one

00:23:29--> 00:23:35

you know while I hectic bro have a nice hacky locker nice hectic family car for the wife

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

and then a nice weekend toy for me. All right.

00:23:43--> 00:23:55

It's all in the hallel and this is and these things who wouldn't love to own a house and who wouldn't love to have a toy and but but but a lot didn't create us for this when Allah says

00:23:57--> 00:24:04

Allah is telling you that you are the greatest nation that was sent out why am I brothers? Why because you send your son to Quran school.

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

Why sister why because you wear hijab

00:24:10--> 00:24:11

What did the law say?

00:24:13--> 00:24:20

Maroon? morona Bill maruthi watton hona Anil munkar you enjoying that which is good. You submit that which is evil.

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

What took me no Nabila.

00:24:25--> 00:24:57

You enjoying that which is good. You forbid that which is evil? And you believe in Allah. And it was this that made us the greatest nation on Earth. Today we see the wrong we see the hallowed we all know we're all united. My frustration is all of your frustrations and every time I see Baba, have you seen what's happening on the streets? Have you seen one lebra things are only getting worse. And then it's like okay, we've become masters at highlighting the problem masters. masters are highlighting the problem, but who fixes it

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


00:25:03--> 00:25:04

you fix it,

00:25:05--> 00:25:18

you just make another video for blues. And let me just keep playing cards and smoking, you know, smoking or Gilliam playing by me with the boys and the girls. Because while other you know i'm not i'm not you know, this isn't gonna pass on the Day of Judgment

00:25:21--> 00:25:30

says whoever wants to fulfill you know, whoever wants to whoever wants to be from the greatest tumor he needs to fulfill the conditions of the verse going to hire

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

a nurse. Why because we enjoying that which is good then we repeat that which is evil.

00:25:39--> 00:25:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, When any one of you says amonkar when any one of you says or wrong, says Haram. He says corruption. He has to stop this with his hands.

00:25:53--> 00:25:59

And then he says, and if you can't stop it with your hands, you know, sometimes the situation doesn't allow you to fix it with your hands.

00:26:00--> 00:26:02

What does he say? Some Allahu alayhi salam,

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

then he should fix it with his tongue.

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

Speak out.

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

Call it for what it is.

00:26:11--> 00:26:33

Advice I love all of this, the hands and the tongue in the best way with wisdom and hikmah and love and Rockman the heart, but you need to stop it with your hands. And if I can't stop it with my hands, then with my tongue, and then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says and if you can't fix it with your tongue, then you should at least hate it in your heart.

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

And this is the weakest even

00:26:37--> 00:26:40

today we see harm and we laugh and giggle

00:26:42--> 00:26:48

brothers we see them and we remember algea here and we try to outdo each other who had more harm.

00:26:55--> 00:26:58

A loss of one way my brothers we don't have this luxury.

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

We don't have this luxury.

00:27:04--> 00:27:14

You can tell me what my brother You know, I'm a simple man and one man. And this is another sickness that's within us all Brother, you know what I'm gonna look after myself. I look after my wife, I look after my kids brother,

00:27:16--> 00:27:43

apple, ba ba, ba ba ba ba you know this is and he thinks, you know, he thinks in his own mind that that that this sort of language has credit, brother, if anyone was going to think like that, then surely the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam who would have received this way, he would have sat in his house, waited for death, and he would have went on my common mode. And then the rest of humanity went to that would have went to the depths of gentlemen, if he saw Allahu alayhi wa sallam was to have such sick mentality.

00:27:50--> 00:28:09

You were created to worship Allah and a part of worshiping Allah is to call that to which is good, and to forbid that which is evil. The only reason why our area is the way it is, and the only reason why it will continue to get worse and worse is because we've abandoned our job of giving. Dawa

00:28:11--> 00:28:23

nothing else stop waiting for some super shack to come from some super country with some super hammer that's gonna give you some super hard if that you've never heard this is Disneyland

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

This is Disneyland

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

Not gonna happen

00:28:34--> 00:28:42

because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had to work hard. The Sahaba had to work hard and any person that wants change

00:28:44--> 00:29:12

has to work hard. is full of great ideas. Oh, this man, Baba. Ideas shut the gates. Shut the gates. I remember once we're doing we went to Hodge Yamanaka remember and we're doing tawaf. So one of the brothers gets me a sister wife man, all in faith in a BB and there's no aura and it's just all over the place. So I'm thinking all brother I don't know man just make your wife and let's just you know Nah, nah, nah nah brother this this is this is an all white you know

00:29:14--> 00:29:18

blue hair three days three days then he comes by guess me you know what but I've been thinking about it

00:29:19--> 00:29:21

three I guess me but the one I have a solution.

00:29:22--> 00:29:48

I said yeah, he said my brother this you know people stepping on your feet and spitting on the floor and bumping into you brother. This is gonna stop glorious. What's your solution? And you look up I've come up with a system. It's like a snail system. Clear? Yes, me. So you start out? Yes, we start on the outer and with every lap you get closer and closer and closer and closer to the cover until you finish your seven. You kiss the Blackstone and then you go and then we have an underground exit and then you get out.

00:29:51--> 00:29:54

I bought a water on amazing idea of a cracker.

00:29:55--> 00:29:56


00:29:57--> 00:29:59

This was not short of amazing. I

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

It is

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

by when it comes to actioning

00:30:04--> 00:30:11

shall you do inshallah Brother Brother How you doing? Brother How much money do you want? Allah doesn't want your money my brother's

00:30:13--> 00:30:20

Allah doesn't want your money What does Allah want? Allah wants your time Allah once you action

00:30:23--> 00:30:28

you're looking at the kids now and all other things are only going to get worse

00:30:29--> 00:30:34

if we don't start caring for one another brother just caring for other kids caring for other kids

00:30:36--> 00:30:41

become non existent. Why? Because bother you know, what can I do? You know

00:30:43--> 00:30:45

I'll tell you the story that oh,

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

I think it will explain what I'm trying to say. I was cutting my hair once

00:30:52--> 00:30:57

and there was a group of kids outside and they just finished school and they're being very loud and all I like

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

now mainly liberals because I'm Lebanese and I could tell that they're Muslims and

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

so the Baba whispers in my he

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

he has me look broken you see that men?

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

And well, I was lucky put a dagger in my heart, you know?

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

Because, by the way, my people man

00:31:21--> 00:31:22

These are my brothers.

00:31:24--> 00:31:42

He asked me brother, I run the biggest mark. They're very loud. They're very rowdy whenever women and yet and everything he's saying is true. Like it's frustrating. And I understand you know, and I myself would be annoyed. But this but this idea of unites like he's telling me like it's almost like he's convincing himself that look, I've done my job by telling him

00:31:43--> 00:31:47

and most of us do this. So I said, Brother, what are you doing about it?

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

His brother, what can I do, man? I'm just a barber.

00:31:54--> 00:32:05

Most of us exactly the same wallet. But what can I do, man? I don't know how to talk. I don't know how to do what you do. Almost as if like Dawa is only sitting in front of a table and yelling at people. This is the only form of Dawa

00:32:06--> 00:32:09

is foolishness. So certain Brother, what are you doing about it?

00:32:11--> 00:32:43

It's all about money. And I'm just the barber. What can I do? I said Brother, do you know any of these boys? He said to me, more than half of them are my customers. I said brother on average, how long does it take you to cut someone's hair? He says we are between half hour to 40 minutes. I said so for so for half hour or 40 minutes. That kid is sitting on your chair, giving you his undivided attention because he can't even be on his phone because you've got that shroud everything whatever it is, he asked me. I said say you have him for 45 minutes sitting on this chair. Sit me talking to him about

00:32:45--> 00:32:57

you have something his own mother doesn't get from him. Which mother gets 40 minutes of undivided attention of her son just direct which which mother gets this? Which she gets this

00:33:00--> 00:33:06

40 minutes this kid is sitting at the mercy of your scissors. What do you say to him?

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

So he goes red in the face.

00:33:15--> 00:33:17

I said brother I know you mean well.

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

That's not good enough to simply say look at that man.

00:33:22--> 00:33:25

He's sitting here for 40 minutes. What are you saying to him?

00:33:26--> 00:33:39

A good word from you. And a good word from his uncle. And a good word from his neighbor. And a good word from the chef at the masjid and a good word from his teacher. It takes a whole community to raise a young boy

00:33:41--> 00:33:46

but if the barber doesn't care and the butcher doesn't care and the neighbor doesn't care

00:33:48--> 00:33:48

Guess what?

00:33:50--> 00:33:51

No one case

00:33:53--> 00:33:54

of course is lost is broken.

00:33:55--> 00:34:06

I had this other genius or like me Rob and we're like credit to the neighbor sorry credit to the to the Baba he said you know What brother? I'm gonna start doing this inshallah so to me bro insha Allah tala

00:34:09--> 00:34:19

I had the I had this other guy he asked me bro voila my neighbor man or lady you know his father is not there this that in the other city? I guess man his son is 13 years old is already smoking pot.

00:34:23--> 00:34:30

The kid is how old 13 and he's already smoking weed so what's he going to be doing when he's 21?

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

No, no no knows.

00:34:34--> 00:34:35

Only Allah knows.

00:34:36--> 00:34:41

And he was really annoyed you know that look. So certain Brother, what are you doing about it?

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

Like you try them Hello funa Shiva.

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

So my kid

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

and what we don't realize this is our attitude.

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

But we're all annoyed when there's another shooting

00:35:03--> 00:35:06

But we're all annoyed when our women are half naked walking on the streets.

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

As a mother, what are you doing about it?

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

He says, Well, I'd rather you know, what do you want me to do about it?

00:35:15--> 00:35:44

I said, Brother, I'm gonna come Holla Holla but uh, you've left no destination in Sydney except you've fished it's mum. Fishing 12 1315 hour fishing trips. I love fishing. All right, so you love fishing. Take him with ya. Take him with you brother. Take the 1213 year old the God who his father isn't that taken with ya? Take him to the fishing place and sit there with him for five hours teach him something talk to him. Hello. I don't want to give away my fishing spot.

00:35:55--> 00:35:56

I don't want to get

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

what's the truth?

00:36:02--> 00:36:08

Your fishing spot is dearer to you than this kid that smoking a joint at the age of 13. That's the truth.

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

told me you don't want to hit by this guy.

00:36:19--> 00:36:22

So yeah, but I don't want to give away my fishing spot.

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

So what are we doing?

00:36:29--> 00:36:35

So easy look at the answers and say well a brother You know this generation is lost even Brother, what are you doing? What are we doing?

00:36:37--> 00:36:57

I love how people think that you know what brother that Nuala, I can sit in a garage and play out a Barbie and smoke at a gala and sit at this cafe and that cafe and speak about how the machine I'm doing their job, and how the Muslim organizations doing. But somehow I'm sort of free from It doesn't work like this, my brother's every single one of us is going to be held responsible.

00:37:02--> 00:37:10

If you really care about your children, and you honestly want to protect them, there's no better way

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

than protecting the children of others.

00:37:15--> 00:37:25

And if you really care about your women, and you really care about you're out and about, Your Honor, there's no better way to protect them than to protect the other than the honor of other people.

00:37:31--> 00:37:38

This selfishness of one or the other, you know, it's got nothing to do with me. This is selfishness. And Allah hates selfish people.

00:37:43--> 00:38:09

So every single one of us is responsible, my brother's every one of us. And yes, within your capacity. I understand that people's abilities and techniques are different. I understand. Well, I understand. But within your capacity within your capabilities, Allah is going to hold you responsible. So what happens to us they are shaitan comes and he overwhelms us with while our brother You know, how do I save the world? Don't save the world.

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

Save the child that's in front of you.

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

Taking in

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

taking in.

00:38:22--> 00:38:35

And I'm guilty of this? Well, no, I am. I'm guilty. I remember at one stage when I had an apprentice, but I was paying him $50 a day. That's that's that's yellow thief, bro, what's, what's 50 bucks a day.

00:38:36--> 00:38:39

Brother within a few weeks, I feel like I only

00:38:43--> 00:38:46

and what was it about? How can I milking

00:38:47--> 00:38:51

you? And how can I get the maximum out of him? For my personal benefit?

00:38:53--> 00:39:00

Well, no, I say this amongst brothers, like brothers that have two three apprentices or you might have a worker. It's like, you don't want to teach him too much.

00:39:02--> 00:39:25

God forbid, I don't want to teach him too much. He might become my you know, he might become my work. Opposition. Look at this, like, Brother, what happened to your risk is with a law. What happened that no, you know, if you teach this young boy and you make a man out of him, and he teach him that he can get out there and he can earn What do you really think I was gonna take your risk away from you?

00:39:33--> 00:39:38

What brought I see it's like, you know, you don't want to teach him too much.

00:39:42--> 00:39:53

The kids in apprentice has been working for him for two, three years. He hasn't signed him up yet. He's still paying in cash. hasn't got him on the books. Why? What are you doing to the show? You're breaking him.

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

You're breaking him.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

Because of your own selfish needs

00:40:05--> 00:40:11

but then when there's a shooting nah This has got to stop cause while lemon This is just pathetic

00:40:14--> 00:40:15

doesn't work like this My brothers

00:40:19--> 00:40:23

you can't just take Allah azzawajal doesn't want monks my brother's

00:40:24--> 00:40:26

a las panatela doesn't want our bed

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he said

00:40:34--> 00:40:39

What did he say? He said the best of us are those that learn the Quran

00:40:40--> 00:40:43

and then what and then they go sit in the corner and read it 24 hours

00:40:44--> 00:40:53

who's the best of you? The one that learn Quran and then he went, who's the best? He said the best of you. The best

00:40:54--> 00:40:57

is the one that wrote the Quran and what did you do with it?

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

He passed on

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

hidden qualities and then he did what

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

you pass them on.

00:41:11--> 00:41:23

And there are some good kids in this community man well not either is it's not all doom and gloom. There are some good kids I've met lots of young boys who you know their mother and father have worked very hard on them

00:41:24--> 00:41:35

well law sometimes I made boys I wish my son becomes like the 1213 year old he comes up me Sir Michael my mom gives you a nice firm handshake eye contact introduces himself

00:41:38--> 00:41:40

so you praise that quality

00:41:42--> 00:41:48

and if his mother and father it's okay doesn't take anything away from you, brother well

00:41:51--> 00:41:54

actually he speaks more about your character when you see good and you praise

00:41:58--> 00:42:07

it doesn't take much when you see a father and a mother that's that have done a good job and decided in my last part Allah reward you because when he succeeds, we succeed.

00:42:12--> 00:42:16

You see a young boy that's dressed well. Doesn't look like a thug.

00:42:17--> 00:42:22

Give him Salaam. You look very handsome. You look good. Praise him one light, okay.

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

I like your dress code.

00:42:27--> 00:42:28

Show him that this is what we want.

00:42:31--> 00:42:38

young sister that carries herself well. The older sisters praise these qualities encourage to nourish these qualities.

00:42:43--> 00:42:47

So a lot of my brothers and sisters we are going to be held responsible men.

00:42:49--> 00:42:57

And if you think that we can take a backseat. And if you think well I rather you know I'm really working hard and while I you know, this will not work on the Day of Judgment.

00:43:00--> 00:43:03

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what was his dua always.

00:43:05--> 00:43:06

Allah my daughter Fatima

00:43:09--> 00:43:14

00:43:15--> 00:43:17

what he's fishing spot?

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

What was it?

00:43:20--> 00:43:23

When did we become so selfish?

00:43:26--> 00:43:29

Well, Mom, I didn't understand the potential you have.

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

We've limited ourselves for a reason.

00:43:37--> 00:43:41

What good can you do? What good are you contributing towards?

00:43:42--> 00:43:46

Allah subhanaw taala says the inshallah to Allah smart Allah says and if he thanked me

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

what will Allah do?

00:43:52--> 00:44:01

What's the word? Allah says if he thanked me What does Allah do in return? lazy there are no promises will give you more who knows what the best form of praises

00:44:04--> 00:44:04

Who knows?

00:44:07--> 00:44:07


00:44:08--> 00:44:15

Allah says what? Yeah mailloux Allah that would work on family of their would work

00:44:16--> 00:44:17

to show things to a more

00:44:24--> 00:44:26

what's the dearest thing to allow my brothers

00:44:28--> 00:44:28

is Dean

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

those that work to protect an uplift his Deen

00:44:34--> 00:44:36

they're called the soldiers of a ma

00:44:38--> 00:44:41

and those that work to simply you know.

00:44:42--> 00:44:44

These are soldiers of dunya.

00:44:47--> 00:44:51

So we need to choose and choose wisely because I'm telling you things are not getting.

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

Things are not getting better when

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

every single one of us is responsible.

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

So ask yourself, what can you do?

00:45:10--> 00:45:17

danga home now in layer two, but you know what I'm going to take on the world. One step by step, step by step

00:45:19--> 00:45:21

was doing scripture.

00:45:22--> 00:45:38

Because it's important to mention good things, too. You know, like I said, it's not all doom and gloom. I was doing scripture in a place I don't want to mention its name I was doing anyway, I was going there on a weekly basis. So one particular week, one particular week, I couldn't make it.

00:45:40--> 00:45:41


00:45:43--> 00:46:06

I called up my brother in law, Oliver Bilawal Lowe's is a gentleman. Yeah, and this guy's married and he has kids and he works a corporate job has every excuse every movie that we play. He hasn't you know, I said to him Look, I can't make it this particular day can you fill in for me? He said to me yeah all right. Let me see if I can get it anyway. He goes there.

00:46:08--> 00:46:13

He asked me Do you mind if I do it for a couple more weeks? I said yeah, try it out.

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

Six years later

00:46:20--> 00:46:23

six years he stayed there

00:46:24--> 00:46:27

watched kids from seven to come all the way the two of

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

normals young simple guy.

00:46:33--> 00:46:43

But because this doesn't get attention because there's no wow factor like how do you put this on Facebook and make a look good. But but that contribution of his last

00:46:45--> 00:46:53

honor this other woman? Well, I just don't want to mention her name because I have been asked to Walla Walla Walla three times in the house of Allah.

00:46:55--> 00:46:56

One law

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

she's worth 10,000 men all day long.

00:47:02--> 00:47:05

oxen, bellette 10,000 men all day long.

00:47:07--> 00:47:13

One lie he she's worth 10 of me anytime you want, anytime.

00:47:15--> 00:47:16


00:47:17--> 00:47:23

that's married with kids, and has a full time job.

00:47:26--> 00:47:38

And she runs programs in high schools for Muslim boys, from her own time, doesn't get paid for it, makes her own sacrifices, runs them for 20 weeks programs.

00:47:45--> 00:47:47

And brothers told me a while about what can I do?

00:47:52--> 00:47:56

People don't remember the talk. You know what they remember.

00:47:58--> 00:48:05

They remember the guy that smiled at them and walked over and gave him Salaam and made him feel important. You'll never forget that face in your life.

00:48:09--> 00:48:12

There are young people all around us.

00:48:13--> 00:48:15

But we've just become busy.

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

When was the last time honestly just

00:48:23--> 00:48:26

not everything's necessarily Dean just values.

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

Well, you don't have to be Muslim.

00:48:29--> 00:48:35

Just universal values, principles, code of conduct. Things that we all value

00:48:36--> 00:48:44

was the last one you you just gave Salaam to a child and he taught him how to give solemn stand up straight.

00:48:45--> 00:48:46

Looking in the eye,

00:48:47--> 00:48:53

give you a nice firm handshake. Teach that child that there's a lot of communication that comes through your hands and when you look someone

00:48:58--> 00:49:06

These are simple things. These are things you do as you see your nephew as you walk into the masjid as you're walking out of a shoe. You can do this anyway.

00:49:12--> 00:49:15

So brothers and sisters, if we want change,

00:49:17--> 00:49:20

then it's upon every single one of us.

00:49:22--> 00:49:23

And by Allah

00:49:25--> 00:49:43

we will all be held accountable. Because the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam letarte Maru morona Bill Maher roofie the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says you will enjoy that which is good and you will forget that which is evil. Because if you don't

00:49:44--> 00:49:52

have law will send down a punishment upon you. That you will raise your hands and make dua and Allah will not answer it.

00:49:56--> 00:49:58

This area is getting worse.

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

Because we've just become busy

00:50:04--> 00:50:14

it's almost like we've got an over Dean you know like Dean was special five years ago and now we're just sort of over it so like you know this so it's just like a trend that sort of

00:50:15--> 00:50:16

now no one

00:50:19--> 00:50:20

so whose job is that? My brother's

00:50:22--> 00:50:23

his job

00:50:24--> 00:50:26

my job this is my own

00:50:28--> 00:50:32

This is my own. These are my brothers. These are my sisters.

00:50:33--> 00:50:39

It speaks volumes about you as an individual that you see such things taking place.

00:50:41--> 00:50:47

And all you're cared about as well of other you know is where's my next fishing trip? Where's the next holiday? Where's my next pair of shoes that I'm going to buy and

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

so we need some serious change.

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

Are we ready for this? insha Allah

00:50:56--> 00:50:58

who's ready to start working for the deen of Allah?

00:50:59--> 00:51:04

Who, however you can, however you can.

00:51:05--> 00:51:13

Maybe you're a brother of je Leah and you've made some Toba and Allah has allowed you to make changes in your life. Then talk to these young brothers.

00:51:14--> 00:51:19

Break the glamour this false glamour that breaker in front of them
