Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah we praise him subhanho wa Taala, the king, the master, the Sustainer, the creator of the seven heavens in the earth, and we send peace and blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. My brothers and sisters, they used to be a time in history
where things were very clear, and people would not argue about them. I'll give you an example.
There used to be a time when someone was obese,
fat, like myself,
it was clear why the man was fat.
It wasn't something people used to talk about.
The man is fat because he ate too much he doesn't exercise he's eating at the wrong times. It was known it was my roof. It was common knowledge. People didn't sit there and get into the theory as to why the man is fat. It's pretty clean.
But today, we no longer live in that time. Today we live in a time when the reason and the excuses for me being obese has to do with anything and everything except me.
You see, when I got married, I was 90 kilos. Now I'm 130 I weigh as much as the highlights
and God forbid I should put my hand up and say that the reason why I weigh so much is because I eat too much no one lie I point the finger at anyone and everyone except myself
my wife my in laws I traveled too much I do this I do that paint whatever picture you want the truth and the hack is the joy the white because of your own actions and nothing and no one else
like the man that went to the you know there was an obese man that went to the doctor an obese man went to the doctor
say guess what the doctor is going there for random blood tests or whatever the case is. So when the results came in naturally like what we do here
he says Dr. Obesity runs in the family
doctor system brother it's not obesity that runs in the family. He says no one runs in your family.
Today my brothers We live in a time and in an era where nobody wants to put their hands up and say and take responsibility.
Today we live in a time where we want do we want takeaway do we want to drive through Dean? I want to come to the masjid I want to sit down for five minutes and you better allow me today the only video that goes viral around the world is any video under seven minutes. Anything beyond that too boring men too long.
I want to learn for an hour to memorize Quran but isn't there something quick? Is there something I can do online? God forbid we should sit down and do the long yards. God forbid There used to be a time when if someone wanted to get big, it was my roof. It was common knowledge. People didn't talk and argue about it. You want to get big you have to go to the gym and when you went to the gym you picked up Ryan and you put the dumbbells and you put it on to the benchpress and he sat down and he ate well and you worked hard it was known today it's not the case today your brother you know out and about in the UK but in Sydney one week is a pension Aquila is the when it comes to strong yeah
you got to pick him up down the road because the wind will pick him up and take him the brother vanishes for two three weeks he comes back he's got muscles on his easy on the muscles on his his
brother How did you get so big our children appetite over
all the symptoms of steroids are all over his face. But he's trying to convince me that he got beat because he's having to learn potatoes
and when you take shortcuts and when you take shortcuts when your dean becomes Joyce through Dean you know what happens the side effects when you take steroids
The side effects are
we living in a time my brother's you know that condition of the oma I challenge anyone need to stand up and Tommy brother, I'm happy and I can tend to the condition of the oma the whose fault is whose responsibility is the owner whose responsibility is this community that you want I live in every single person he will stand up and give me 150 names off the top of his head and not one of those names will be himself.
That the problem with DOMA, the problem with this stir in the other is because of the because of the Messiah because of the dies because of the seniors because of the committees of our Masjid the two old school doesn't allow us to do this under and allow us to do that. And it's this that and the other but God forbid any one of you should be man enough to stand up and say that the problem with DOMA is people like me.
Responsibility has left the Muslims now. We've become pansies. That's what we become. They used to be a domino
When we were men, we were men we were transcend See, we were man enough to admit when we were wrong today we don't do this anymore when men came to
him and of course we know during the time of fitna men came to La Villa Vitaly and look, look how cunning they were. They said Ali Bella Vitaly brought the lava lamp. They said to me, I've been meaning and they're running amok on him. They're obviously playing jokes on the men. They said to him, you know, Subhan Allah, why is it that in the time of Amara of The Hobbit was golden times? Yeah, in our Sierra, the years of Amara, is known as the golden years of Islam was during the rule of I'm sorry, I said to him, look how cunning they said to him, how come in the time of armor of the hubbub Mashallah everything was going well, Islam was expanding, money was coming in. And why is it
now? Li Li now during your time, we see the fitna that's happening around.
You know what he said?
He said, because in the time of Amara, he had men like me around him. Whereas now in my time I have men like you around me.
The Prophet of Allah when he spoke about the oma sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he gave the analogy of don't know what analogy did he give? He says the analogy the example of my oma is like that of one body.
The Soma is one body.
He says, when a part of it hurts, the whole body feels the pain when a part of the body hurts. He says the whole body stays up the might in sleeplessness in fever, why, in fighting off the pain in fighting off the infection. Today, do you feel like we are one body?
Today? Are we honestly genuinely concerned about what's happening around the world?
Do you feel Do you honestly deem yourself to be a part of the body and to be responsible?
You know, my brothers, my time is short, you know what, let's drop the issue about what's happening around the world.
Let's talk about what you anointed because what you and I do has a direct effect towards this oma, every sin you commit has a direct effect on every single person that testified and even in his app, you know, the sister that's getting raped in Syria, what should he still has a direct effect on her.
Because I have news for you, that day that she decided to be a Muslim, the day that she decided to say, Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, you entered the fold of Islam. And when you entered the fold of Islam, he fell under the umbrella of dogma. And when you became a member of the oma, you became a part of the body. So what you do has an effect on the oma
brothers are walking around tonight telling me Listen, and please excuse me and I was sitting in the machine, but I'm not here to give you Disney stories. When you hit the speak, honestly, or let's just shush up and go home. And let's just sit down and watch TV. Today you walk around, and every single one of us has this disease. Every one of us has this disease that we're looking at hamdulillah I'm not the best Muslim. And here maybe my Quran has shortcomings. And here maybe my Salah is not this, that and the other. But it's all right. No, it's not alright, I think
people sit there Listen, you know, what if I don't want to pray, that's none of your business. It's between me and alive. Ever heard this? That no one can judge me. Only God can judge me. Wow, big round of applause for this brother. Hey.
Only God can judge me. Well, yes, only God can judge you. But unfortunately, but I have news for you. Your shortcomings has an effect on me as an effect on my wife has an effect on my children and has an effect on the rest of the oma.
So it's not up to me to allow you to do wrong and to do harm and not stand before you right and give you a warning that what you're doing is wrong and bothering
the Prophet of Allah in the Sahih, Hadith fcbd, the prophet of Allah takes an oath by Allah, He says you either enjoying that which is good, and you feel a bit that which is wrong. This is a responsibility upon everyone. This is not the responsibility of a boss. It's not the responsibility of the machine. It's not the responsibility of the holy man. It's the responsibility of every person that has a man and right in his heart to call to that which is good and forbid that which is wrong, why are profitable or what if I don't want to do it? What if it's not my business? What if I want to do my own thing? He says, you will do it, oh By Allah, Allah azza wa jal who sent down his
punishment upon you, you will raise your hands and make God and Allah subhanaw taala would not accept your praise.
Allah will not accept your praise. My brothers and sisters, please don't you see what's happening around you. Don't you understand that this is around the corner for every single one of you.
Every one of you did you know this? Did you know death stares you in the face every single day.
What are you doing with your life?
What are you doing with your life?
Look at what's happening. Look at what's happening to us around the world. Look what's happening to you in your own country.
You know, when I left my house when I left my home in Sydney to come here, I, I I went to the airport four hours early.
Four hours early. Why? Because I was mentally prepared for the interrogation to why I'm leaving my own country. I'd become a criminal in my own house.
I had paperwork ready and prepared. Why because I was mentally prepared that when I get to London airport I was ready for a three four hour interrogation for what for no other reason except for the fact that I look like a Muslim and that's the truth
Yeah, what are we doing about it?
We are in oma we are one unit we are not individuals we don't have that luxury. You don't have the luxury of saying but the only God can judge me Leave me alone No one you know you know that look it's none of your business let me do as I please know my brother because what you do has an effect on me and what I do has an effect on you. So you're probably thinking you know, yeah, you know what, but what's your deliberate that's unfair? What do you mean that whatever he does has an effect on me? Yes. Because when Allah subhanaw taala deals with the Muslims he deals with them as an oma. When the hierarchy and the Baraka of Hamas panatela falls down who does not fall down upon
it falls upon everyone and when the punishment of Allah falls who does have fallen? falls upon everyone. This is my system you like it you don't like it? It works in jails are an Ah, hang on, it's all making sense. None of my business. This is how Allah works.
When he's not my fault, everyone feeds off it. And when the hubbub and the and the and the and, and the curse and the anger of Allah smart Allah falls everyone copson
when mu Salah is Salatu was Salam when he's people were going through a drill and please I'm sure you've heard the story before I'm sure you've heard the Hadith before but when why you know I really want you to try and live it try to understand it put yourself in this position
you know we really have to break away from just we sit down we read the Hadith, you know Allah we become like deadbeats
live live the Hadith tried to understand what is going on here. The Prophet of Allah Mousavi salat wa salam. The tougher the had the luxury of speaking directly to almost Anwar tala imagine the Prophet of Allah, his people were going through a state of drought, no water, you know what that means? That means everyone was suffering.
no water, no food, no crops, the plants were dying. Nothing was growing animals were dying, nothing to drink nothing to a human beings with dying and suffering. Amongst them is a profit.
So the people came to us and said there most of what's going on.
I'll cut the long story short. So Mussolini's people, they go to the desert Moosa raises his hands, he says, Oh Allah, you can see what's happening to my people. You're alone, we're begging we're asking for rain.
Naturally, when a prophet asks what happens?
Allah answers yes or no.
Musa asked for rain, the waiting for the clouds to come in, nothing happened.
You know, forgive me, these are my own interpretations or making it clear. These are my own interpretations. These are the, you know, I have this problem. Whenever I read, these thoughts go through my mind. I'm thinking well imagine being a prophet at that moment. My people who already there a man is with the wind going and coming. Right? True. Allah, Allah, Allah again and again, with the worst. Yes. You can imagine. Imagine the pressure he was under. My people are turning to me. They're waiting for the response. I'm a prophet of Allah. Right? I have direct relationship with Allah. Allah. Y'all know I clearly asked you for rain and nothing happens.
Talk about hate under the collar.
So who says yeah, I love what's happening.
I asked to rain in the rain.
Listen to what Allah says.
He says yamasa from amongst your people, there is one sinner.
how many seen is in our towns?
How many of our Muslims don't pray
how many of our sisters are still unscathed?
How many of our elders still cannot refer to her properly
yamasa from amongst your people is one sinner. And because of him and him alone, I have deprived the rain from falling.
So you can come to me now and talk to me about justice and wisdom and Is this fair all night long, doesn't change the fact that a lot deprive the rain upon a profit upon people upon innocent women and children and animals and crops because of the actions of one men.
some also turns to his people, he says, Oh, my people amongst you is a sinner, come out and make yourself known.
You know, I was thinking about this story. And I think imagine being that man at that time.
while I with all respect to everyone, I already know without anyone, every person in this room is a sinner, including myself.
Every one of you is a sinner, whether you like it or not, because the Prophet of Allah will never lie. Only bunny Adam Hopper, every single human being is a sinner.
But we have the luxury of hiding our sin. Sometimes we have the luxury of knowing local, feudal, at least no one knows about it. It's in private. It's only between me and no one knows. Imagine this man has never been addressed by a prophet. And now he comes to realize that because of my sin, because of my shortcoming, that I thought no one knows about except me and Allah. Now this man comes to realize that because of my shortcomings, all my people have been suffering because of my sin. Imagine that feeling.
Honestly, how many of you feel like because of your sins, the almost suffering?
How many of us,
samosa says make yourself known come forward.
Imagine the embarrassment.
So this man now realizes that hey, I'm the guilty one.
Unfortunately, something most of us are not prepared to do.
So the man repents, he makes Toba to Allah,
but doesn't make himself known to most Allison.
Some also waits for the mentor come forward. No one comes forward Moosa goes back, asks Allah
and to his amazement, the rain comes and starts falling down.
So yes, of course moose has happy The rain is there. But now he's baffled, is he? He says, Allah, please, some clarification.
I asked for rain to begin with. He said, there's a sinner, I asked for the sinner to come forward. No one came forward. I asked for in the second time and now the rain comes down what's going on?
Now listen to what Allah Subhana Allah says to him, he says Moosa, I deprive the rain from coming because of him and him alone.
But that person he turned back to me and he asked for my forgiveness. I accepted his Toba and now because of him and him alone, I've allowed the rain to fall down.
Someone says now interested. He says, Oh Allah
told me who this man is.
Allah pantalla system also. He says there Moosa, I didn't expose him when he was a sinner. What makes you think I'm going to expose him now that he's repented and turned back to me?
You see, when you and I sit there, where are wow Masha? Allah Subhana Allah, what a lovely story, the rain came down and everything worked out at the end and happily ever let you know. And you know, everyone lived happily ever after. Yeah, and thanks for coming.
You know, what's the amazing part of this story is not the fact that Allah allowed the rain to come.
You know what I find these interesting.
What I find interesting is this man that was man enough to admit, was men enough to stand up and say, Hey, I am in the wrong. He was man enough to acknowledge the fact that he shortcomings made his people suffer, and he was man enough to acknowledge it. And he was man enough to turn back to Allah. He was man enough to ask Allah azza wa jal for forgiveness. And Allah subhana wa Taala accepted Him.
A quality that most of us fail in.
Where are those that are? Where are those that are prepared to stand up and say, Hey, you know what's happening around the world? It's because of people like me. It's because of my shortcomings. It's because of my lack of Deen. It's because of my sins at night. It's because of my long term that I can't keep sharp. It's because of my eyes that I can't keep down. It's because of my actions. No
We point the finger at anyone and everyone except myself.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran and English is a very loose translation. You can never give the Quran Huck in any language except Arabic. Let's make this clear. Quran you can never do justice with in any language, except in Eric. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Listen to what Allah says, Allah says he will not change the condition of the people into they change the condition of what? Of Who?
So what's Allah waiting for?
But even now, as we're saying that you're thinking, Well why are you thinking about the man next to you that has to change and you're not thinking about yourself.
Allah says he will not change the condition of the people. And today the people in today change the condition of themselves.
My brother and sister what you do in your life has a direct effect not only on the Muslims but upon yourself.
What you do your lack of Deen, your lack of understanding you're, you're not praying or you're not whatever it is, your sins, whatever it is that you have in your life, that is wrong, and it has an effect on your children. It has an effect on your mother and your father. It has an effect on the whole oma.
And the opposite is true when you when a when any one of you does a good action. Know that not only do you benefit, but the rest of us also benefit from your good actions. We have to hate we fall under the we fall under the banner of Islam. This is an oma
you know, amazing the Prophet didn't even give some or some he didn't even give the analogy of the family. He didn't say that my alma is like one family.
You know why? Because even as a family, you have the right. It's Haram, but you still have the luxury of choosing not to speak to your brother, I can choose to not speak to my mother. I mean, it's Haram, but you still have the luxury of doing that. So now I can choose to not see my son, I can choose to discern my children. Whether or not it's accepted by law. This is a different conversation. But what I'm saying is, I have the luxury of not speaking to my child, I have the luxury of staying away from my brother. Yes, but as a body, does anyone have the luxury to look at his head and say, You know what, I don't like the look of this thing. I'll just take it off right
No, you don't have that luxury. Why? Because it's a part of me, I have to live with it.
And that's how the Prophet of Allah spoke about the oma.
Whoever has led in Lama, Muhammad Rasool Allah, and he says this sincerely, he is a Muslim, whether you like it or not, whether he praised in your Masjid or not, whether he follows your Imam or not, whether he pride praise and fast at the same doesn't change. It does not change the fact excuse me, when you forgive me, whoever has Eman and don't hate and clearly says it. Whether you like it or not your Messiah except or not. A doesn't change the fact that he's a Muslim.
And unless there is an offer on his tongue, and on his hands, he's a believer, whether you like it or not, is a part of DOMA.
This sometimes the boys they struggle. What do you mean? No brother, what do you mean?
He goes and gets any one of us the authority to say, who is and who is it the Muslim.
Something that the companions never died on doing? The Prophet of Allah who had to move off the cliff around them. They lived around him, he had him on the list. He had them on a list that even his closest companions didn't have the luxury of knowing, and you will know what to walk around and try to reason he wasn't the Muslim.
What a sickness.
And people told me Islam is love and peace, man. Rubbish. We don't have peace in our own communities. We
must change and we want the world to love Islam.
Who are we kidding man?
We don't have love in our own families. We don't have love,
tolerance and acceptance.
The scenery has become the norm.
Loving and mocking and ridiculing one another has become the norm and accepted. Any cowboy picks up a phone records himself freshing and scammers and this
is become an authority to speak on team
and we are
Why is this happening to us?
You will know you're responsible
you will know my brothers what you will do has an effect on the soma
I'm sure I'm sure that if I was to ask you brothers you know are you happy with the fact that there's no love and everywhere I go here bah bah bah you know how machines need to pull up you know an algorithm and now demands you know what's this or what's
what are you doing to spread the love?
bro I'm a nobody man no one's gonna listen to me
see this mentality that I'm a nobody that I'm a nothing
when you start believing that you are nothing
you become nothing.
When you start believing that I'm a nobody. I got news for you you become a nobody.
Spirits being broken.
Our attachment to our Deen has been lost
when Mohammed Al Fatiha was four years old, four years old.
For your Allah four years old, his mother is to take him to the seashore.
And she's the show him Constantinople by the seashore. And she's the tellem hammer. Do you see that place there?
satella Yes, ma'am.
She's to tell you one day you're going to open and conquer that place.
Four years old.
Today when a young four year old comes
Get out of here man. Get out of here.
Today the brother is 10 years old 15 years old and you and I let's be honest, you look at this guy. He's young he's an idiot. Hey, just go home and play your Sony PlayStation.
When you start addressing our children like they're nothing they become nothing
whose fault is this?
What Western government is telling you to speak to your child like he's an idiot
which system ever put a gun to your head and sit you to speak down at your wife and speak down at your children
we've lost our way
we've lost our way.
Today we live in a world and forgive me I know this is gonna definitely shake some cages on this is definitely gonna upset some people. Yeah, but I'm a nobody I'm not an authority of Dean's so forgive me for my ignorance. Today we live in a world where you know what we love to talk about? We love talking about jinn and black magic and Rukia Lisa Rukia that
your own life I had the luxury to speak my heart to talk about this filthy topic. That's become that's become
it's it's it's I don't know, what does it possessed the woman now. Now every Tom Dick and Harry is possessed. Now every Tom dick and Harry's got black magic. Now every single relationship that is failing is because someone made a table and someone made black magic on them. And I need this shack and that chef and my brother will know what to do man, you know, I got to sleep by shaking this. God forbid your marriage is failing. Because you're a miserable father. You're a terrible husband. God forbid. God forbid that's why your marriage is failing.
We love these topics. Why? Because he takes the responsibility off my shoulders and puts it on something else.
Nothing to do with me.
Good Men. My friend has stopped back I'm in Sydney and I'm so all the scene is he will tell me what's wrong with the youth tonight. Our youth have become out of control. Our youth is this setting. The other people told me all the time, but you need to talk to the youth you need to do there's nothing wrong with the youth. The youth that you see the youth that you're complaining about. The youth that you become embarrassed about is a byproduct of who you are and what you stand for.
Your this opinion child is a mirror reflection of you.
Your son is a failure because you failed him as a father. That's why
but now we don't want responsibility.
My son's a bad kid because his friends take him here in there. Why? Where are you brother?
Where are you?
Brother, I drive a taxi for 12 hours of the day.
So who's raising your son?
Brother we got to live
y'all know you got to live
but when you choose to have you know when you choose to go to a restaurant every week and you choose to live in the upper side of town because it looks and feels better than them and when your car has to be at Oh 1504 a model you chose that life
now you pay the price for
it anyway I've spoken too long I'm sure you know where I'm going with this we're lying my brothers we need to wake up
the solution to all of your problems is ElDeen.
That's that's that's done. Sometimes people come and they are waiting for some unique there is no other answer.
I lost my palaces and your magma to LA come dinner come today your your religion has been completed and perfected. Any problem any trial, any tribulation, any hardship that you ever face in your life. You will find the full answer in the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and in the suit of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
You want answers? Come to the deen of Allah subhanaw taala
I left you on the clear road the Prophet of Allah says I left you on the clear road path I left you on
you know why this dealt? You know why this confusion because it's missing in our lives.
It's missing in our lives.
Today the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what's a become now?
Who can tell me
the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, what is our current modern understanding of sooner when I tell you brother This is a son of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam How does your mind interpret that automatically? I'm looking for someone who is honest enough to tell me
study one way I want to have you because you are mad enough and honest enough to admit
the Summa rasulillah is
but there's a photo sooner sooner.
Photos photo I thought I had to do
you see the statement?
You know now we have this common language,
bro that the sooner of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the best way? Does anyone disagree with the statement? The sunnah of Rasulullah Salam is the best.
Let me tell you how much poison there is in this statement alone.
When you say that the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the best. What you're saying to me indirectly is that there's a lot of options and that the best of them is his way.
No, my brother, the son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the only way you don't have any other option.
I asked one of the machete horns. I said, What's the difference between us and the Sahaba?
You know what he said? I'll end with this.
He said the difference between us and the Sahaba is
we left every sooner of rasulillah because it was only sooner.
Whereas they performed every sooner because it was a sooner.
So I've spoken too much.
I think I'm pretty clear with what I'm saying. We need to stand up and start taking responsibility. We need to start raising our hands and say I am responsible. It is because of me.
It is because of me. Don't worry about the next Majid and don't worry about the next exam. And don't you and I need to change you and I need to be that man that was from the people of moose and said I am the one that's in the wrong, you will not need to stand up and repent. You will not need to start making a move you and I need to take a step closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala if not for your sight, then do it for the women. Do it for the children of our Alma who are suffering because of our actions.
