00:02:28--> 00:03:09

today's football is particularly difficult, given the circumstances that many of you have been following in the news that are coming out of France. It's a it's a certain scenario and a circumstance that Muslims have not faced for the first time. This is something that's been ongoing. And any of you that have come into consciousness and adulthood in the last 30 4050 years have seen this play out over and over and over again. And we find ourselves in the same exact scenario yet again, where someone has attempted to it what is in their mind and insult to our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam other attempts to do some things. These kinds of things are attempts to

00:03:09--> 00:03:51

dishonor the Quran in some way, burn a copy of the Quran or humiliated in some way, or speak ill of the prophet Isaiah to Salaam by way of caricature or words or publications or whatever it may be. But this is something that is a recurring phenomenon. It's a seasonal thing. It happens time and time and time again, and we find ourselves deeply frustrated. It goes without saying that no Muslim no one who believes and loves his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's a part of our mind when I can aloha Baba la como de mana was a Anna, who flew become that Allah made eemaan, beloved to us, and he beautified it in our hearts, that statement in sort of gerat. As I've said before, it

00:03:51--> 00:04:28

comes from the ayah that tells us that he is the Messenger of Allah mungus. Meaning Eman is only beautiful when you have love for a little less a little bit harder to sell them. And it's very odd more than obvious for any of you that are Muslim that are listening right now that if somebody you were walking down the street, and somebody humiliated your mother, your sister, your wife, your daughter, you would not just walk by, you would not not be offended. You wouldn't just say Oh, the rest of the family have suffered. It's okay. You wouldn't do that. It's not something that that's, you know, and if you wouldn't do that there'll be something wrong with you. Because part of being

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

having honor is to protect those that you honor. This is not just something Muslims carry, by the way. This is something people of other faiths, okay, you can be some guy could be with his girlfriend at a bar, and some guy looks at her funny. And he says, What are you looking at? Are you disrespected? You know my wife or my girlfriend, they'll start a fight happens all the time. When you're protective over someone, when you have honor for someone, when they are yours and you are theirs. Then you do not tolerate someone humiliating them. So the idea that

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

Muslims shouldn't be offended that something like that is done. Let's just cast that out of the way. Let's first cast that. And you know what? The, there's more to say, right? Because if I say that we're offended, am I condoning the heinous satanic act of killing somebody? Because they insulted Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam? No, no, and no Muslim ever does no Muslim who knows anything about the book of Allah, whatever, actually do that. And I will challenge you. If you think you know the book of Allah, and you think that's okay. Because then you don't know the book of Allah, I would challenge if you even believe in it. If you think that's okay, if you think killing an innocent

00:05:34--> 00:06:10

person is okay, or killing someone for the for the ideas that they carry, no matter how much you disagree with them, that giving them any bodily harm is okay for you. As long as that battle of ideas, it doesn't need somebody's hands to win. Those who lost it, someone was given the Koran and the courage didn't know how to handle it. They didn't know how to respond. So they decided to resort to violence to shut the Koran down. But Allah did not have to reveal for those who say Salaam to fight the Croatian Mecca because the Quran was so powerful that they first they couldn't dismiss it, it wouldn't go away. They tried to make fun of it, it wouldn't go away. They tried to call it poetry

00:06:10--> 00:06:49

wouldn't go away. They call it magic, it wouldn't go away. They called him a liar. It wouldn't go away. They're like we gotta beat up his followers. It's not going away. No, you know what, we have to kill him. This is not going away, and align all of that time. In all of that time, the only thing Allah gave his messengers, like Hello, is the book of Allah, which kept on strengthening those who believed and it kept on disturbing those who don't. It kept on disturbing them. The words of Allah were more powerful a response to any violence, they came up with. This, this is the CEO of our messenger, salallahu alaihe salam, when the time for words was over. When finally alarm revealed for

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

the prophets, I tell them to leave.

00:06:52--> 00:07:03

And for a lot when the alarm revealed for the prophecy, some to pick up arms, because it was a revelation that told him to do so that was a different era altogether. But let's start with the basics. Because you know,

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

I expect Muslims and non Muslims are listening to what I'm saying right now. So let's get some things out of the way.

00:07:10--> 00:07:19

I am not here. to state the obvious, even though and I once I do state the obvious, I'll tell you why that is wrong.

00:07:20--> 00:08:03

For one fifth of the world's population to be expected to say, We condemn the killing of an innocent human being, we condemn the killing of a teacher, or we call condemn killing inside of a church. For us to be until I come out and condemn that there's something guilty about me I'm hiding some sort of an agenda. Right? Because now I represent the most psychotic neurotic person you can find that carries the name of a Muslim or says a phrase that a Muslim would say, and therefore their behavior is something I need to distance myself from. Because there's a commonality between them and me, they use the word a lot that I use, therefore, I am half guilty already. Therefore, I must prove my

00:08:03--> 00:08:28

innocence first. The killing of one innocent human being is disgusting. I believe in the Quran, when which when it came, Allah azzawajal tells told his messenger sallallahu Sallam to speak up for the baby girl that's being buried alive by the pagan Arab, who was born in a pagan family, who had nothing to do with this religion. The Quran told me to come and speak about the one who the orphan that was being pushed around the orphans, a pagan and the one pushing him as a pagan.

00:08:30--> 00:08:47

And the Quran came and didn't say, well, they're Muslim, therefore you should stand up for them. We stand for no human life is worthless, Muslim or non. That's the Muslim view. So let's, let's move on. And you know what my intention is even to talk to Muslims on this point. I'd like to remind Muslims of this point.

00:08:49--> 00:09:00

That every single life The taking of one life in America, NASA Gemini is last words and allies words are above your feelings no matter what you think of non Muslims, no matter what you think of them.

00:09:01--> 00:09:39

That that's first let's let's be clear about that. But let's not be children either. And I'm sorry, some things I'm going to say today may be offensive to some, but I'm actually not really sorry. These are things that are brewing inside me for a long time. And I expect and I will also give some disclaimers and I pray Allah gives me clarity of thought I'll give some disclaimers. I don't claim that I have the answers to this problem. I do not claim this. I can claim that I have some observations. And they're very painful observations. First and foremost, when something like this happens when there's an attempt to insult Our Messengers I said oh by the way cannot be insulted.

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

You can say whatever you want. You didn't allude to a lot heavier for him below him with him when he they can they try to blow they want to blow out a less light with their mouths. Allah will complete his life. You can't do anything about you can see I hate the sun is still gonna shine wave right above your head. You could spit at it. The spittle right

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

All right back on your own face.

00:10:03--> 00:10:15

When people came to us, Jose Selim, cursing him and speaking, like poetry was made against him, instead of Mohammed, the praise one was among the condemned one. He will literally respond, he must be talking about someone else, because my name is Muhammad.

00:10:16--> 00:10:25

When you can pick whatever drawings you want. First of all, you don't know anything what the prophet look like, anyway. But you know what those pictures really are. They're a reflection of how they see Muslims.

00:10:26--> 00:10:41

That that's, that's what it is. But beyond that, what is let's talk a little bit about our Muslim responses, while our responses well, boycott French products, or let's protest against what's happened. Let's call for a protest.

00:10:42--> 00:10:49

Have we gone on this road before? And if you want to boycott, do it, if you want to protest, do it.

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

But is that it?

00:10:54--> 00:11:00

That's it. Now I'm not buying Chanel perfume anymore. I've done my job. I'm good.

00:11:01--> 00:11:06

Or I put some angry face emojis on social media. I'm done.

00:11:07--> 00:11:21

I've done my part. Well, what else do you want us to? And what's the what's the third option, that we should take matters in our own hands? We should respond, we should let them know how angry we are. And let me tell you something about that from the other side.

00:11:22--> 00:11:54

You know, nations around the world are very familiar. They're not they're not stupid. Governments, educational institutions, they're not stupid. They know how we operate. I've seen that from the inside. I've seen research done on Muslim communities that is so exhaustive about what are the different psychological states of different kinds of Muslims? What are traditional Muslim, traditional Muslims think like, what are liberal progressive Muslims think like, what are proactive, academic, you know, activist Muslims think that they categorize us. They study us like lab rats, they've got their research on us, they got this figured out.

00:11:55--> 00:12:01

And you know why they have this figured out because they know exactly what kinds of reactions we're going to have. How to play a game

00:12:03--> 00:12:07

that's been done over and over again. It's not once it's been said dozens of times.

00:12:08--> 00:12:44

Are there elements within the Muslim community of people that are pretty much psychotic? Pretty murderous, Shelton, that were the label of Islam that were the label of Muslim? Yes. And are they looking for an excuse of provocation to do something that's already brewing inside them? They just need a justification. Yes. Yes, they are. And once they take such an action, it's such a disgusting satanic act of killing somebody. The disgusting satanic act of beheading someone once they do that? Well, you know what, that opens up another floodgate of opportunity for some other people.

00:12:46--> 00:12:52

Because they know we're not the Muslims are not out to behead people. They already know that they've done their research, believe me.

00:12:53--> 00:12:56

They know, they've surveyed our communities they know.

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

What they do know, though, is,

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

Islam is.

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

It's not, it's not losing its original flavor fast enough.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

These people still want to eat meat.

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

These women still want to work a job.

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

These guys still aren't, you know, they're they're still dressing modestly, they're still going to the mosque, the churches are empty. That's okay. But these mosques are still filling up. You know, and this is, it's not a good look, for us. It's a good, it looks good when we colonize their lands, and then impose our will and our education systems on them. And teach them that Arabic is not important. The Prayer is not alone isn't important, learn French, learn English, learn German, so you can move up in the world. But when we bring these backwards villagers to our countries, then they need to get with the times and modernize themselves. If they're still holding on to the

00:13:48--> 00:14:19

religion, they must be extreme in some way. So let's first make sure we demonize them by calling them extremists. Right? And justify the most the most evil among them, or the crazy among them, let's find some case. And that will justify the how we deal with all of them. All of you are crazy until we say otherwise. Right? There are plenty of countries in the world today where if you pray five times a day, you're an extremist, plenty of countries where you're you got question your parents pray home, they pray.

00:14:20--> 00:14:42

There are people in their countries in the world where if you dress a certain way, you'll be following around the reality. You're gonna be there countries in the world where you can't get certain jobs. There's no way you'll get into certain institutions, certain places because of your Islam because you're wearing your Islam outright. You need to hide it, need to be scared of it. You need to let it go.

00:14:43--> 00:15:00

And that this this idea of, you know, you know, insulting someone in the name of free speech, the hypocrisy of it is so loud. It's so incredibly loud today. There's a political movement against racism. So if someone even in these countries were

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

To say something racist, outright racist, there will be a public outcry.

00:15:04--> 00:15:13

No, you can't say that. You can't teach that in schools, you lose your job. Why? Because it's against the sensitivity of a certain group of people, you have them feeling inferior.

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

And that's absolutely correct.

00:15:17--> 00:16:00

But now for Muslims fair game, right? You can defend them all you want, because they're you they're probably extremist anyway, they need to learn to get with get with the program with the rest of us. This is the position we get keep getting put into, but what is our response supposed to be besides beyond anger? Beyond protest? How many hours how many hours you're gonna stand outside with the picket sign? What is our risk, we're one fifth of the world's population, we have the most powerful document in existence in our possession, and we recite it rigorously, with firt with our hearts and souls, and we can't come up with a better solution. We can't come up with something smarter. Now,

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

what do we do we put the expectation on Muslim governments, right? Muslim countries should boycott all trade with these countries until they apologize for what they did. We should, you know, cut off our our, you know, trade routes and airspace from them. And we should you know, what sanctions among them good luck with that.

00:16:21--> 00:16:51

You can ask that all you want. That's not how the real world works. And let's grow up and realize that, instead of saying what the Muslim governments should do, and should do and should do, let's just kind of look at reality for what it is. So what are we supposed to do that? What in the world are we supposed to? Do? You know, what we should do? We should do the thing that pleases a lot the most. And the thing that kafar who hate Islam hate the most?

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

The thing that Allah loves the most.

00:16:55--> 00:17:01

The one that the thing that took afar hate the most is a phrase about that, in certain fact.

00:17:02--> 00:17:08

Let describes the prophet SAW Selim as a farmer. He says your job was the raw idea. If I beat him, we'll cook farmer.

00:17:10--> 00:17:15

The farmer is impressed with the crop. And as the crop cultivates and grows, it angers liquefy,

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

it angers the disbelievers. Why is this crop growing and maturing? Why is it maturing? What is the majority of the crop that the prophet SAW some raised? study that I have carefully and you'll find it's how he cultivated his companions on the one hand, which many

00:17:34--> 00:17:50

the Quran was flowing through their veins. They understood what this worldview is understood with it for confidence. This is the time for you and me to show how much Islam is an inseparable part of our identity.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

And an inseparable part of our identity for generations to come.

00:17:56--> 00:18:03

If you're somebody who was barely praying, you should say you know what, because you hate my Islam so much. Now, I'm going to pray five times.

00:18:05--> 00:18:14

You're thinking about hijab, you're not sure about, you know what, because you hate Islam so much. And because you want me to let it go. Now I'm gonna wear it even more. Now.

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

I was thinking about my beard.

00:18:19--> 00:18:30

Nope, now it's coming. Because I will offend you with what makes a lot happy. But I think what brings me closer to my profit, I will offend you with it. You like offending him, or I love offending you and you hate him.

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

I'll offend you by deepening my roots in this book,

00:18:36--> 00:18:42

I will offend you by completely transforming how I think about educating myself. How I think about educating my children,

00:18:43--> 00:19:08

I will change I will at least in my family, I'll change the trajectory of what what what kind of Muslims, we look like in 10 years, how educated we are, how strong we are in our faith. I will do that for my family. I'll do that for my community. You want these all of these acts, these acts of provocation. What's the purpose of them, the purpose of them is to say these people don't belong in our society.

00:19:09--> 00:19:47

So let's just show how crazy they are. So we can find some kind of legislative way or social pressure way of getting rid of them or scared them enough so that they look more French and less Muslim. They become more like us and less like themselves. Once we can accomplish that, then we'll be okay because if you look like I said act like us and basically accept cultural enslavement. Right? Because your ideas are offensive. Ours are you know, the progression of the human race. So if you if you look at the world where we do, then you have finally joined the rest of us in eastern civilization, because you backwards people need to get with the program, right? Well, you know what,

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

why? Why is it that it's not time that we demonstrate that the most intelligent human beings, the most civilized human beings, the most balanced human beings, the most mature human beings are people who carry this faith.

00:20:01--> 00:20:24

That were the most stable of them all. It doesn't matter what society we go to we are as biggest assets. Because of how we carry ourselves. We have to prove ourselves to anybody we have to this speeches aren't going to do that. Press Releases aren't going to do that. Articles aren't going to do that. videos aren't going to do that. You know who's gonna do that? The way you carry yourself, the way you run your business, the way you start institutions.

00:20:26--> 00:20:31

I would argue that Muslims need to know what the IRA t from sotera is a blueprint.

00:20:33--> 00:20:42

Quran was offensive. It was offensive. Why was it offensive because it was going inside the hearts. If the Quran sitting on a shelf is not offensive to anyone.

00:20:44--> 00:20:48

No, Salam is not offensive to anyone because he's a figure in history. He's gone.

00:20:49--> 00:21:22

When de, when will these Why are these things offensive? Well, there's a legitimate reason they're offensive. And there's an evil reason they're offensive. Let's be honest about that, too. The legitimate reason these things are offensive is because Muslims misrepresent them, and they engage in corruption, evil, alienation, they engage in all kinds of things that are anti Islamic in the name of Islam. And that's when the non Muslims sit down and say this is what their religion is, this is what they want. They're a plague on our society. And you know what, when Muslims act a certain way they do act like a plague on society. That's a fact too.

00:21:23--> 00:21:35

But there's another reason there's plenty of Muslims that are not a plague on society. There's a vast majority of Muslims that are an asset to any society, they're a source of goodness in any society. There's also justice in any society fairness in any society.

00:21:36--> 00:21:41

Those Muslims that are that are in that now they need to be stronger than they ever have been.

00:21:42--> 00:21:52

Need to toughen up like they never have before. I'm reminded of the Allahu anhu, who wasn't even Muslim. But when he found out his prophet is his nephew has been offended. He's a

00:21:54--> 00:21:55

Muslim now.

00:21:57--> 00:22:08

I was kind of thinking No, no, no, what now? What? Now what? It's time for the now what response from the entire Muslim community from the entire Muslim world.

00:22:09--> 00:22:17

And the last thing I want to tell you are, there's lots of talk about here, but like, what I really want to share with you is

00:22:18--> 00:23:00

the game plan, the game plan that they have for the world. And Islam is just one part of that for them. They're not out to get a song, they just, they don't want anything that gets in the way of the the the, you know, rapidly increasing consumer culture, where all of you are just there you live your existence is there to buy products, and to to be materialistic consumers, you all you are a numbers, that's all you are. You mean nothing else. The worldview we have, the way we look at society, ourselves, the way we look at truth. It represents a problem because we're not materialistic in that when we're not cheap.

00:23:01--> 00:23:08

We're independent thinkers, we're critical, we're analytical, we think about justice and injustice. It represents a problem.

00:23:09--> 00:23:49

You know, what, if those things are a problem, it's a problem for those who engage in injustice. It's time we showed everybody around us what Islam really is. You think they have propaganda machinery, they can put a cartoon on a government building, and the world will get the wrong picture of who the Prophet Muhammad Islam is. No, the world gets the wrong picture of hula, hula, as the world gets the wrong picture of about what the Quran is, because the Muslims don't represent them properly. One in every five persons on this planet is a Muslim, we have plenty of spokespeople on this planet to represent what the Quran really is. What Islam really is, no force in media has that

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

kind of following.

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

Nobody has those kinds of numbers. We do.

00:23:55--> 00:23:59

It's time we act and we showed what it was. We stood for it. We spoke of it.

00:24:01--> 00:24:07

We spoke of it. I talked about the Quran. I talked about association with anybody I deal with any business I do.

00:24:08--> 00:24:30

You know, I just had somebody do some work on our campus non Muslim guy, we I don't I don't preach Islam to them. But you know what? Any chance I get to say, Hey, I forgot to send you an invoice. You know, but the payment was due last week. And I immediately write back to him and our teaching is our Prophet told told us before the sweat dries up, you should pay the worker, we'll get we'll take care of it right away.

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

And he just writes back Man, I wish other people follow this teaching.

00:24:37--> 00:24:37

Right.

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

This is what we got to do. Now. We have to introduce the prophets. I send them with the way we do business. We have to introduce the profits last time in the Quran with the way we carry ourselves in society. We are now its ambassadors. Stop thinking that governments will come in and help stop thinking that billionaires will come in and help stop thinking that media organizations will come in and help you or the media

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

The media and we've got to do what does not dissuade us from this, this nonsense these people this these attacks on the Prophet alayhi salam, these attacks on the Quran will never get rid of the Quran, they will never reduce the status of the Prophet size never. What they will do is they will desensitize us over time because we'll start thinking, what can we do? What can we do? What can we do? Right? And everything we do nothing changes because we're back in the same situation. When a person tries to do something, and they end up in the same situation over time. They just say, what's the point, right? What's their biggest success, we become hopeless. But if you're in the middle of

00:25:36--> 00:25:44

planting a seed, and people are distracting you, and then you're still planting a seed and said, What are you doing? It's not even a tree yet.

00:25:46--> 00:26:28

And you're not just you're not bothered by it, you're just watering the soil. Because these people that want to keep this place a desert, when that tree comes out, and it won't go anywhere and it's fruits keep coming out. Then maybe our response is a slow response. It's a measured response. It's a chronic response. The I read to you and so Toronto and with it is salad oh dear Toby Kataria man, you know, Allah describes the coming of the Quran in Makkah. Allah says Allah sent water from the sky and the valleys got flooded. The valleys got flooded. You know what that is an image on Orion came from the sky and Makkah got flooded. People even who hated who hated Islam knew about the Quran

00:26:28--> 00:26:28

now.

00:26:30--> 00:26:47

They couldn't get it out of their head. Wha hoo, Allah could Alicia in de la hora Rahim, Allahu La Ilaha Illa. Allah ulukaya. There are phrases in the Quran that got repeated so much they became coin phrases in Makkah, even with machico. Like, how is this happening? Why is this happening? How do we put a stop to it?

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

You think we're so sorry, someone was offensive

00:26:51--> 00:26:55

than the most the kindest human being that ever lived. I mean,

00:26:56--> 00:27:00

the people that they trusted, so they kind of mean, they hated him so much, right?

00:27:02--> 00:27:03

You know what that means? There's nothing wrong with you.

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

You can be the nicest person.

00:27:07--> 00:27:15

You can be the kindest person, you can be the one looking out for them more than anyone else. But once you stand by this book, you are public enemy. Number one.

00:27:16--> 00:27:49

This this is unpopular. This is against our society. This is uncivil. This is a threat. Whether it's a threat or not, it's not even the point. And when when some will act in that evil way that some have to wreak havoc on the rest of the community, then all they needed was that justification to be able to label everybody else. And now you're too busy and labeling yourself and I'm too busy. I'm labeling myself. No, no, we're not those crazy people. Not Islam doesn't say that. No, Islam hasn't said that for a millennium and a half read.

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

No scholars said that.

00:27:53--> 00:28:17

No civilization, Muslims have been a part of the civilization of Europe, of Africa, of Asia continents. Islamic scholarship is an Arab scholarship. It's an international multi civilizational scholarship that has thrived alongside Jewish and Christian communities, and Hindu communities and Buddhist communities. For centuries, upon centuries upon centuries, there's a history.

00:28:18--> 00:28:28

And for us to think that somehow we have to get on either we have to get on the backfoot and apologize for being Muslim. Or we have to, you know, justify the insanity.

00:28:29--> 00:28:50

As if Allah does not give us a response, we need to stop being reactive. We suddenly somebody needs to say something. Stop thinking like that, what is that going to do? I'm talking to you like, if you and I were sitting in a restaurant together, and at six feet apart, you're telling me what are we supposed to do? Why don't you issue a statement? Okay, I'll issue a statement, then what?

00:28:52--> 00:28:56

What's going to happen? You're going to read this a bit and say, Oh, he issued a statement. We're okay. Now.

00:28:59--> 00:29:12

This is how we think, though, this is our response. Is that what alarm has always had expects from us? Is that what he wants from us? Show the strength of Islam with how you live.

00:29:13--> 00:29:18

You live the this is a battle for the heart and mind of the individual. Don't forget that that's the real battle.

00:29:19--> 00:29:37

That's the real battle. And that it doesn't matter if you live in Europe. It doesn't matter if you're in Africa, it doesn't matter. And by the way, let's let's face the hypocrisy. It doesn't matter if you're in a Muslim country, where you can get fired for not going to the Christmas party. Because that's a reality in the Muslim world.

00:29:39--> 00:29:55

Because you're not getting with the program. This is not just a Western, the Westerners trying to westernize Islam, please, please, there are plenty of people in plenty of continents other than Europe, Muslims that are more enslaved to Western domination in their head, that even politically

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

and they're imposing that will onto society.

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

hosing down onto society whose slave are you? Who slave are you? You have to really ask yourself that question what is your life supposed to mean? How will you make the power and the beauty and the universal messaging of this religion be seen for what it really is?

00:30:20--> 00:30:31

Just for what it represents, in reality, how am I going to do that? How are you going to do that? When we put our heads down, and we put ourselves to work like that, then the noise will come and go.

00:30:32--> 00:30:48

I read that I keep referring to it. I didn't even get through the whole habit. I just want one. One thing I'll mention a libido mineral eyeshadow T of Homo, and we'll do the circle monkey Shara coffee. smart person can take a hint. A smart person can take it What does Alessi zebra do?

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

He says,

00:30:52--> 00:30:55

For amazulu for years, Habu jufa and

00:30:56--> 00:31:32

a mama young Pharaoh NASA for young beautiful God. Let this part sink inside you like rain sink and sinks inside the ground. Listen, well, Allah says, He says ask for froth. You know what froth is? When rain comes? There are pebbles on the ground dried leaves on the ground twigs on the ground. Their basis, basically dirt, they're dirty. What does floodwater do? It washes it away. Right. Unless has asked for the froth. And you know, when water foams up, it's also called subud. You know when floodwaters form up and bubbly and dirty. That's called sub and he says, As for that phone, it shall wash away.

00:31:33--> 00:31:39

And as for what benefits people will go deep inside the soil. What's he talking about?

00:31:40--> 00:31:49

When there's there's words being said there's words being said by people, there's words being written by people, but many of those words are nothing but what

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

froth

00:31:52--> 00:32:15

it'll come and look like it's a flood, but it says dirty and got washed away. And the thing that will remain is the water that goes deep inside the earth and what will produce trees and life will be produced. understand the difference between the power of the word of Allah and the filthy words of people. These people's words will come and go and they will disappear. They will have no mark in history.

00:32:16--> 00:32:22

They will have no impact in the world. And we have what can transform the world, transform it.

00:32:23--> 00:32:30

completely transform your world and the world around you transform your business, transform your school, transform your neighborhood.

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

But we want to go top down.

00:32:35--> 00:32:57

We want the government's to change. We want civilization to change us versus them no planter group plant a seed. plant a seed, let it shade fall on the believer and the disbeliever led even the one who never knew what to believe, feel its shade and eat of its fruit and say wow, how come so people were yelling at you because you were planting that tree?

00:32:58--> 00:33:18

I want to I want to join the farm. I want to be part of that garden. Become that seriously contemplate what what I'm trying to get across and I pray I have some clarity in what I'm trying to get across. We need to start thinking that our angry outbursts are momentary outbursts are some kind of a solution.

00:33:19--> 00:33:34

Because they're not. Yes, you can have legitimate within legal means. responses, reactions, letters, even livens recommend lawsuits. I even recommend it. You don't think those kinds of cartoons are trumped traumatic to children?

00:33:36--> 00:33:44

That that's not offensive to children. You don't think that that hurts their psyche, and we shouldn't stand up for the mental health, at least on the shoulder, our children?

00:33:45--> 00:34:25

These are not worthwhile legal action. Absolutely. They are absolutely no way around it. Take all of those actions but understand something. Those are just reactions. That's not the action needed. That's the reaction of that for the time being. The real action needed is for this Omar to wake up to actually be someone that will socialize lm can make shofar for on Judgement Day. These are the people who carried my word for you believe the shahidullah him like the one who's here, you deliver it to the one who's not here. Well, you know what Ain't nobody here. We're here now. Work, we got to deliver it. We got to stand for it. You really love your profits, less of them, then take on his

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

mission. represent it. You really love your profits. Listen, let me be trying to be more like Him and be proud of being like him. Stand by it. And from there, a lot of help will come. From there, these challenges will come and they will fall off like froth. And what stays deep inside will make us firm with a bit of dominance. So nanocone carefully make our feet firm. And as against those who disbelieve me allows it would just give us a sense of our responsibility to align His messengers on the long run, even send them mail as we just never allow our love and our respect and our honor

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

For our beloved messengers I sell them to be decreased. May Allah azzawajal allow never allow these people's failed attempts at dishonouring the messengers I sell them to make their way into our hearts and male liars which will make us truly the defenders of the nobility and the legacy of Muhammad Rasulullah saw them and the word of Allah barakallahu li walakum Hakeem in a friendly way, El Camino

00:36:04--> 00:36:44

Before I conclude, I just wanted to add something that I didn't think of in the hub, but I'm just making an appeal to everyone, including myself, but everyone. We need a renaissance in the soma. We need the brightest young minds to be the most educated in their religion, and to be the most educated historians, political scientists, anthropologists, psychologists, economists, you need to be the best of both worlds. You need to be leading in every sphere of life, you need to be the mark of excellence. When people think of the top in their field. They think of the people that that c'est la ilaha illAllah. When you do when you lead the world in both, when you lead the world in both,

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

then you see who insults you.

00:36:47--> 00:37:12

Then you see, Allah gave us these IR to study the art of creation. He gave them to us to study, just like he gave us the Iota revolution to study. It's time that we held ourselves to a higher, higher, much higher standard. Every single one of you young people, men and women that are listening to me, what is it that you're going to accomplish in your life? set your goals high, out of love of your messenger so a lot more. I do like a lot you welcome
