Amanita Allah rasool Allah HuFa defensive Hosanna Alima. So the koala who dalim I'm about

00:04:21 --> 00:04:26

Subhanallah every single Juma football, I think about what to talk about.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:32

And I always like to talk about things that are very relevant during during our times.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:59

And today, there's just so much going on, that I will try to touch upon each of them very little. First of all, we see what is happening today today to the state of the affairs of the Muslims. After every few years, there's another country that is taking a very high role that is becoming very proactive in oppressing Muslims showing their true colors about what they think about Islam and Muslims in their country.

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

And today we see this happening nowadays in France. And I ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, may Allah help be with our Muslim brothers and sisters in France.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:39

At the same time, we see that the elections are just around the corner. Brothers and sisters, few advices I have for all of us today. Number one is, it is very important as a Muslim, that we stay in touch with what is going on around us today. Subhanallah we are so we are so focused and concentrated on our own personal affairs.

00:05:40 --> 00:06:23

Today we do talk about our Muslim situation here in America. We talk about our welfare, we talk about our safety, but we only talk about these issues when the issue shows up on our doorstep. We as a Muslim community, unfortunately, for the most part, yes, there are people that are Hamdulillah, they are active. But as a whole, for the most part, we are not active. We don't know what is going on in our society. We are completely oblivious every every single time the word elections come around, brothers and sisters elections does not only mean that who's going to be the next president. It also means that what is going on in your own community, when we talk about school and the gun

00:06:23 --> 00:06:37

violence that happens in our schools. And let us always remember that our children are they are part of the society. It can happen if it has happened at a public school, it can happen at any other school, because this is the society that we live in.

00:06:39 --> 00:07:14

So when we talk about gun violence, when we talk about our situation here in our cities, elections have to do with everything. And as a Muslim, we should know what is going on in our own community. We should know what's going on in our own society. Brothers and sisters Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam is the perfect example for all of us. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Never Was he in a situation that he was oblivious. And he did not know what is going on. When he went to send them was when he wanted to find out is Medina a place that we can go to or not, he sent us a hobby.

00:07:18 --> 00:07:59

He sent us a hobby of the alotta on him to go and find out about the situation in Medina. When he wanted to find out about Abyssinia, he sent a group of Sahaba aliotta on home. And if you stay the seed or the province of Salem, they say that the reason why the property he did this is to find out the what is the climate over there. If us Muslims, if we have to God forbid if we have to leave from here, can we go there or not? This is Rasulullah Salallahu Salam finding out about the situation when the Muslims were in Abyssinia. dynojet. She told the Muslims, you are living here in Abyssinia, you're living here. But there is a situation that has come up and a cousin of mine he is trying to

00:07:59 --> 00:08:39

overthrow me in my entire government. And if he comes into power, he will not show you any mercy. So he's telling them that a Joshi is telling the Sahaba aliotta on home, he's telling the companions of the Prophet SAW Salem that if that situation happens, here is a boat here is a ship, you go back to Makkah, and you find a place over there, and the Muslims there, what did they say oblivious? No, every single day, they will go and find out, they will get the news, they will get the Intel exactly what is going on, who's winning, who's losing and so forth. Because they're worried about their safety in their welfare. Brothers and sisters, we need to become more integrated in our society, we

00:08:39 --> 00:09:17

need to be more in touch with what is going on. Not just from a political point of view, forget about that on a national basis. When we have not even when we don't even know our own city. We don't even know our own community. We don't know what is going on within our own community. It is so important. And this is also part of, I'm having my roof and a yarmulke over my roof and a yarmulke is not just simply about telling someone to do something good. Keeping that away from wrong when you try to make your society better when you try to make your community better when you take an active role. There is also under my roof and here in Moncure. The second thing that we need to do today as

00:09:17 --> 00:09:59

a Muslim Ummah, is that today we find situations where people will say things about Allah, people will say things about Islam, people will say things about us wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam, but we living in America, what we need to understand is that we can never become reactive. And we have to always remain proactive. I'm not making this up. Just this week, I had a one hour conversation with a woman who was thinking about converting to Islam, and question after question, objections against Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Subhan Allah when you sit there and you educate them, and you tell them give an explanation, it opens up their mind. These are people brothers and

00:09:59 --> 00:10:00

sisters. They have been

00:10:00 --> 00:10:38

brainwashed, they have no idea who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is they have never even studied the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they have been deferred one thing after another thing against Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the way to counter that is not by going and doing the same exact of ignorance what they're doing, but it is about going and educating. It's about going and being part of your community. Even nowadays, I say, Do not call churches and find a way to be part of them. Go to the soup kitchens, go to these food pantries go to these kinds of places. And when you work with them, that is when they will see the true colors of

00:10:38 --> 00:10:46

what Islam is today. This is very, very important that we must do this. We need to show people what is the true color of Islam.

00:10:48 --> 00:11:24

The next thing I will say is which is very also very important, which ties into these two points is that when we come across ignorant people, we do what Allah subhanaw taala has told us in the Quran, we're able to Rama and Olivia am sunnah and allow the Hona wider part of Muhammad Jaya, he's gonna call you Salama. When you come across people who are ignorant, there is no need to give them time, there is no need especially now if a person who does not know they're asking questions they want to learn. That's a different case. They are probably ignorant, but they do intend to learn. But when you come across someone who is ignorant, someone who's only objecting, then just leave those people

00:11:24 --> 00:12:03

to the side and you keep on doing your work. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did he have a lack of people who objected to him? There were so many people who objected to him. But what he did was he kept on doing the work. You know why? Because you have two choices. Either you can start answering every single one of their objections, or you can keep on doing the work. And when you keep on doing the work. Your work will speak volumes, your work you your art, our participation, our community, our participation in society will speak volumes. So that's why it's always very important that when someone comes and they just simply want to object and not only that, forget about people

00:12:03 --> 00:12:18

who are not from the Muslim community, even from within the Muslim community, people will come and they will say this is not from the Sunnah, and this is against Islam and so forth. But you keep on doing the work because when you know that you're doing something right there and is proven from the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Salem, you keep on doing what is right.

00:12:19 --> 00:13:01

I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our situation better. It is a very first of all, as we are dealing with this pandemic as it is, the entire world is dealing with this pandemic as it is. And it only hurts when you hear these kinds of situations. That yes, there were wrongdoings done on our part to there were some people in the name of Islam, they did something very, very wrong to at the same time, as the way we see that the government of France how they have reacted to that, and how they how they have gone overboard, and the rhetoric and the hate rhetoric that they're spreading, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that when we look at that kind of situation as Muslims in here in

00:13:01 --> 00:13:41

America, never feel never feel that that cannot happen here. That was happening over there can happen here. We are looking at what is happening, it becomes our responsibility to ensure that that does not happen here. And we can do something about it. We can make a difference in our community, we can make a difference in our society. The ball is our record the choice is our isn't it the choices are within our own hands. We will see what we do now. And we will see how we react either we can do what is right or we can just sit there and say oh Allah you deal with it. Oh Allah help us and nothing's gonna happen like that. We have to make a difference in our own community in our

00:13:41 --> 00:14:05

society. Ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our affairs easy for us. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring those people in power, who will be beneficial to the Muslims. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala that during this pandemic and in troubling any challenges that we go through May Allah subhanaw taala help us all of us amenable Alameen BarakAllahu Lena welcome them whenever I know where you are converting with they can Hakeem and stuff Allah How do you welcome what does it mean first off, you know in order for him.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:49

Mr. Ballard. Quickly just want to mention about the elections as you all know,

00:14:49 --> 00:14:59

elections are coming up. Now I know a lot of times the same argument I hear over and over again, is that when both of them or whoever's running for a position when they're all

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

have flaws and so forth. Why should we go in? Why should we endorse this? I'm not saying that go and necessarily endorse it. But here's what happens when we, as a Muslim community, show that we are a presence in our own city, then people are going to have respect for us, if we don't have respect for ourselves, and we want to sit on the side and take no part that no one's gonna have any respect for us. So all I'm saying is that even if you go, first of all, I will say go and vote. And even if you go, even if you go and you don't want to go and vote, and leaders go, just put your name in. And just don't even if you don't put anyone, even if you don't put anyone and you just simply walk out

00:15:40 --> 00:16:16

your name has been counted as a person who voted, that's it. And when they look at the end of the day, when all these politicians when they see at the end of the day, how many Muslims voted, even though if you submitted a blank ballot, a blank ballot, your number is still counted, that this is how many Muslims they went, and they voted, and then we become a presence. We become a presence in our own community. Brothers and sisters understand that we're not living overseas, we're living in America, we choose to live here, we chose to live here we are raising our kids over here, we're gonna probably going to die here. Our kids are going to be raised over here. They're gonna have

00:16:16 --> 00:16:52

children over here. We're here for the long haul. We act as if we're still living overseas. So we have to get more integrated into our own community. We have to become more part of our society. How many of us actually have ever gone to a city hall meaning how many of us have actually find out what is going on in community we are complete disconnected. If we are disconnected, they will treat us as if we are disconnected. I ask Allah subhana wa to make all of our all of our matters and all of our affairs easy for us. I mean, noble Allah mean Allah humma so if someone was to mean Allah homeless or Islam or Muslim enough equally, McCann Allahumma sunnah Allah mahalo fauna, Wofford. Billa
