rock Eva Yeah your Alladhina Amira Topo la aku kolam studied useless la Kumar Malecon way of luck on the Nova come when they yield where Allah rasool Allah who forgot the first 1000 of Lima, we begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we declare that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him. We bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger that he is a shining example for us and that he has been sent as a mercy to the worlds we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to follow in his example, and to send his peace and blessings upon him his family is companions and those that follow until the day of judgment. And we

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us amongst them. What am I mean? The brothers and sisters, I want to start off with a little bit of a tangent because I feel like it's important. All of the ayat all of the verses that Allah subhanaw taala revealed about hypocrisy about an effect

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

came in the money period of Islam. They came after the first 13 years and they came after Islam was well established in Medina. And the reason being is that Subhanallah the Muslims that believed in Mecca really had nothing to gain of this world. They weren't gaining any fame. They weren't gaining any popularity. They weren't gaining any notoriety. They weren't gaining wealth. They certainly weren't getting better in their business. In fact, they were being boycotted for being Muslim. They really had absolutely nothing to gain from saying Lila Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah except for risking themselves, you know, being oppressed by their families, losing money losing status, some of them I

00:05:43--> 00:06:25

mean, I want you just to realize the degree of how traumatic it was to become Muslim in Mecca. Many of them were divorced, young women divorced by their husbands because they had become Muslim. Many people had their daughters divorced by their husbands because they chose to become Muslim, one of them being the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. The prophets like Selim, his daughters, Rokia and Uncle whom may Allah have mercy and be pleased on both with both of them. They were married to the two sons of Abu Lahab and Ebola as a means of inflicting pain on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded his two sons, or he commanded his two sons to actually

00:06:25--> 00:07:02

divorced the daughters of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a means of inflicting pain. So I mean, they really had nothing to gain of this world. They really weren't getting anything out of it. And there's a beautiful sincerity to they're becoming Muslim. When they became Muslim. They understood exactly what they were saying and what they were doing. And Allah subhanaw taala He praises them, he says layers that we have in common and for common public fact, hey, we're cotton. When I came out of amo Daraja, terminal Edina and faculty member do Wakata do what couldn't know what I don't want personal loss. Pantai says that those that became Muslim before the fetac, before

00:07:02--> 00:07:38

the conquest, which is actually 20 years into the message of the Prophet slice Allah, that they are not equal to those that became Muslim after and put it all on the light. And in fact, there are those that say the earlier that the people came into Islam with no strings attached, the more blessed they are. But Allah sponsor says there can be exceptions to that rule. Couldn't Anwar the longest No, you know, everyone will have their guarantee from Allah subhanaw taala because there's some people that accepted Islam in Medina that cannot be replaced amongst them. For example, a man likes I didn't know more of all the Allah Tada and who, who the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala shook

00:07:38--> 00:08:18

at his death. He's one of the unsought he's one of the people of Medina. So he out, you know, he's able to outdo many of the companions of Mecca, but the ayat of the FARC, the ayaats, of hypocrisy really started to pour in, in Medina. And somehow it's, it's quite amazing because it starts from the first year after his law, with becoming of certain Bukhara, and so on so forth. And it doesn't end until the very final revelations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because there's a fear now that Why are you becoming Muslim? Are you sure that you're doing it for the right reasons, and so on, so forth. But there's a man now, and this is significance. A man who is the chief of the

00:08:18--> 00:08:55

hypocrites, and that's not a title that you want to earn in history, with all of the mafia calling that were there, all of the hypocrites that were there at the time of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There is someone who unanimously takes the cake and his name is Abdullah and obey, even salute. And I'm the love no baby, no saloon. The story behind him is quite fascinating. And it's not the topic of my hotbar. But there is some lessons that I want you to take home for yourself, which is number one, that one person's ego can destroy an entire community. And in fact, subhanAllah historically speaking, both of the theological sects within Islam, all of the

00:08:55--> 00:09:34

theological sects that you see within Islam today, all of them at the end of the day, what it all boils down to it, it goes down to a man that was trying to claim too much power, someone that wanted power, that that caused the few people to rally around him. And next thing you know, he's either a prophet of God or where He has knowledge that people do not have. And next thing you know, it's a cult and SubhanAllah. It formed, it formulates into a sect. And that's why sects, historically speaking, were called hella people of desire, because it really wasn't a theology that they were fighting for. It was a desire, and they were people of how they were. And that's something that the

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

scholars unanimously used to use to classify deviant sects, because it was an idea of one person or two people or whatever it may be trying to gain a certain level of power. And when a person has a craving for power, or a craving for fame, or a craving to be a spokesperson, they will jeopardize the harmony of an entire city of an entire community of an entire country of an entire world in the

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

case of Shavon have an entire species of an entire race for the sake of their notoriety. And this is exactly what we see happening in Medina. And it happens many times in Muslim communities as well. You trace down divisions, and Allah subhanaw taala mentions it in certain spiritual rot. When you solve the fitna and you sort things out, it comes down to one or two parties. You just got to solve it between two figureheads, and then you solve a fitna, right and everything. It's clear that one person was starting something because they were trying to be the face of something they were trying to gain a position of power. It's a very serious thing to take note of. But let's look at Abdullah

00:10:38--> 00:11:18

Abdullah beiben Salut Abdullah know they've been saluted before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got to Medina. This was the man that was supposed to be the hero. This was the man that the two warring tribes of Elsner, huzzah, Raj, were finally coming together, you know, rallying around and finally going to declared Him as their leader as their king. And all of a sudden they hear about this man that's not from our people that's from another city altogether. And the unsought you know, the people of Medina are going out and meeting him. And they've pledged themselves to him. And next thing you know, he's coming and by the way, we've all decided that we are going to pledge ourselves

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

to this man Mohamed Salah hottie who is someone

00:11:21--> 00:12:00

because of that, I'm the love No babe and saloon SubhanAllah. And it's very significant. Sitting in the message of the Prophet slice, and I'm listening to him for all these years, experiencing the Sahaba and they're beautiful dogs and they're beautiful o'clock. They're beautiful characters and manners, because of the fact that his power was stripped from him. For nine years, the message would fall on deaf ears as far as he was concerned. He didn't want to hear anything that it's not really sad to say none of it. He wasn't interested in opening his heart to the teachings. The only thing he cared about is my spots, my position, my prominence and Subhanallah the prophets lie some gets to

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

Medina, and I'm delighted to have even said we're seeing the excitement of the unsolved surrounding the prophets like Selim. He decides that the only way I can really unseat this man is to play a strategically so he offers his house to the prophets like every time the prophets lie son was about to give ultimate to Gemma you know what he does? He says, Hi, no more in our Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, everyone can listen to the prophets like Selim, honestly today rasool Allah be quiet, the Messenger of God is talking. He's acting like he's an ally, and he's really overcompensating. He's going overboard to say that I'm a supporter of you, Yato suit Allah, we're

00:12:39--> 00:13:15

happy to have you and so on so forth. He wants to play good guy. The reason why he wants to play good guy is so that when he finds the very first opening, he can squeeze in, and lo and behold, Rise to prominence again, now the prophets license was not ignorant about the reality of this myth. I know some of us I sort of knew the names of the hypocrites before their hypocrisy even became apparent, he actually told Are they familiar with the law? These are the names of the hypocrites, he actually confided in him. And so the Sahaba would see if they felt was preying on someone. Then they knew he wasn't a hypocrite. When it came to janazah or they abstained, they said that the prophets

00:13:15--> 00:13:55

lie. So I'm definitely told this man, that he's a hypocrite. So also Maasai Salam is clearly aware of the reality of this man and he's really overcompensating and going overboard and giving himself a position by saying honestly totally Rasool Allah as if he still has some control over the people be quiet, the Messenger of Allah is talking and the prophets like Selim tolerates dismantle, and Subhanallah the very first opening, when he finds an opportunity to drive a wedge in the community to bring back the division, the tribalism Subhanallah, that before the prophesy, some got there, he was he was actually putting himself on his pedestal on the basis that he will solve the problems

00:13:55--> 00:14:35

between an arsenal hostage now he wants to penetrate any and every division that he possibly can in the community, so that he can rise to national prominence so that he can rise to to whatever it may be, so that people will know who Abdullah and will even salutis he finds his opportunity to drive that wedge. The first battle comes around, starts telling the unsavoury you want these Mojito and these people came from Mecca, and they're, you know, they're sucking the blood out of us in the money out of us and they're putting us in dangerous way and they're doing this are you really going to do this and then you have Bernie masala, the battle that was about to take place between the

00:14:35--> 00:15:00

Muslims and when he was stood up and you know what, he finds an opportunity to draw division once again. And he even says let him Adrianna el Medina, lawyer free journal as zoomin and then he says when we get back to Medina, we are going to remove allies, the dignified one, the Honorable one speaking about Himself, the Honorable one is going to remove the humiliated one

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

And he means by that last little loss of Allah Hardy was saying, Don't worry guys, I've got your back, we gave him a chance we brought him in here. But now I can restore your problems. You see Subhanallah fear mongering has always been the way to rise to leadership, I can restore your problems, I can make things better for you. I can remove this man and remove all of these Mexicans that have brought nothing but evil on our society. And Allah subhanho wa Taala response to Abdullah Abdullah, they've been saddled with a very powerful message. In the eyes of Abdullah Abdullah beiben Saloon, it was all about him, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he could care less about any

00:15:39--> 00:16:22

person in society because the issue for him was just power. So everyone else doesn't exist in the grand scheme of things. They're just pawns, so I can get to my power, the only man who has his eyes set on his the profit slice on him and how I can remove him. And somehow the answer of Allah to this man is powerful. Allah subhanaw taala says what the law is what he also did he Well, in many Subhan, Allah, to Allah belongs glory, and to the messengers, like Salman and in fact, to all of the believers, meaning the world is not just about you. It revolves around much more than you. It's not even just about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's not even about muscle that was Lai Salah

00:16:22--> 00:16:59

there is far more at stake than your own personal ego here. Now when he did this, and he actually, you know, wanted to wanted to start something and he actually plotted physically to overthrow the Prophet sallallahu. I think it was ALLAH, some of the Sahaba they said, the honor, so Allah, I mean, we've known about this guy for quite some time now he fabricated the slander against the art he sold the Alon. I mean, the gloom that he bought, he brought to the house of the messengers like some he slandered his wife. Now, a lot of us we can take personal insults, but when you insult my family, especially with it with something as heinous as Zina as adultery or fornication, I'm not going to

00:16:59--> 00:17:36

tolerate that. Right? Say what you want about me. Don't talk about my mama, right? That whole concept. Don't talk about my wife, don't talk about my family, you can insult me. Don't you dare touch my family. He touched what was most sacred to the prophets of Allah Hardy, who was summed up he accused the most beloved wife of the prophets, why some of Zina and started a huge fitna in the city. I mean, he has heard the prophets lie Selim in every way possible. And the prophets lie Selim was absolutely justified in just taking this man out. And it's not like the prophets like Selim had to ask the Sahaba to take about this hardware coming to the prophets. I'm saying Allah so Allah, I

00:17:36--> 00:18:03

mean, we've had enough of this guy, haven't you? Can we just do away with him? I mean, by any standard, the man is a hypocrite, and the man has committed treason and the manners and so on, so forth, slander, can't we do away with him? And the answer of the prophets lie Selim is so profound, Allah, it's profound. And I want you those of you who understand Arabic at least to pay attention to the tenses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, lie at the heart death in Nassau.

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

County actually was hard.

00:18:07--> 00:18:49

I don't want people to say that he used to kill his companions, who was the prophet sly, some talking about himself. And the province like Saddam was saying in past tense, meaning the prophets lie, Selim is not only concerned about the message that this will send to the Sahaba around and to the non Muslims around, he's concerned about future generations. 1400 years later, going out and pulling out narrations and saying, you see what he did to that man who just wanted some power, just you know, through a few insults here, there you see what he did to him. The prophets like Selim says, I don't want lamb to say and now who that he used to kill his companions, Allahu Akbar. But

00:18:49--> 00:19:30

prophets lie Selim was able to overcome you know, that hurt that was inflicted on him in every way possible. Why? Because I don't want the image of Islam being tarnished. I know it's justified. I know that we can explain it to everyone around here every tribal understand I mean, his tribes have become Muslim anyway, he's only got a handful of hypocrites within that are making this habit. But the prophet slice Adam is concerned with the image of the religion. He's concerned with the perception of the religion to the extent that he says I don't want people in future generations to say that I used to kill my companions the Prophet slice I'm left him alone. On top of that, I'm the

00:19:30--> 00:20:00

Lago David said old passes away. Now Subhana love the man destroyed his own credibility by the province lysosome, shutting him and not doing anything to him, he became a low and reduced person in society. No one listened to him anyway, by the end of his life, he was a loser. Right? As a wildlife he might have still had these dim hopes that one day he would ascend to power, but he was a loser. He had no followers, really, that were meaningful and then nothing of substance to present anymore. And this man passes away. Now Subhanallah I want you to

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

Think about this. If a Muslim, a Muslim slandered your wife, and I'd ask myself this question if a Muslim slandered your, your wife, would you pray janazah on him, even if he died in the most beautiful of ways?

00:20:15--> 00:20:54

I mean, it's a question that you have to answer yourself I, I don't know. I can't say that I would. Right and I would have the right as a Muslim it's my hack I am justified not praying just as on that person. I would not be blameworthy not Islamically nor morally nor ethically it would be very much so understood why I did not pray janazah on this man, right, even if he died, you know, mashallah, coming to the masjid every Salah he slandered my wife. I don't have to preach in Aslan him I you know, I hope I can forgive him in sha Allah but you know what, I don't know when I'm the love and obey been several passes away. His son comes to the messenger slice Allah. And he asked the prophets

00:20:54--> 00:21:34

lie Selim to pray for His forgiveness. Mo Salah sigh Salam, without hesitation said okay. Not only that, I want you to look at the character of your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Prophet SAW Allah Allah He was some spell. This was supposed to be the first story and I had like five more points that I wanted to give him the ultimate and I realized the hope was almost over. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even took his garments. And he gave it to Abdullah Ibn Saud, he shrouded him in his own cloth. Why? Because when his Uncle Al Abbas saw the Allahu taala, and who was captured on the day of better the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, you know, Abbas was a huge man

00:21:34--> 00:22:12

was a big figure, and Abdullah and obey Him and salute in his overcompensating and saying, Hey, I'm really, you know, part of you guys and I love you. I'm the love No babe and said, Lord Sathyaraj, Salah, I'll give some cloth and you can cover him up, because he was too big to be covered by any of the cloths of the Muslims and I'm the loving Raven saloon, had a similar size to an ambassador Allah and he was a huge man. And the prophets lie Selim felt a sense of loyalty. He felt a sense of worth that, to the extent that he took his own garments, and he shrouded Abdullah bin Obon saloon, and he prayed on him. I remember how powerful the Alonso said he had a civil law. Come on, don't do this.

00:22:12--> 00:22:21

You don't need to pray on him, so on so forth, and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah actually sat down revelation to agree with Omaha, probably a low tide on

00:22:22--> 00:22:59

a lot and this is not the first time Allah subhanaw taala agreed with all of our recent revelations to confirm the opinion of our model the lots on numerous times. But he says Allah subhanaw taala says it stuff would allow him to stop for long look, if you seek forgiveness for them, or you don't seek forgiveness for them into stuff that Allah himself or ina mandala, even if you sought forgiveness for him. Yato sort of luck. 70 times Allah will not forgive him. But that wasn't the point. And that's not the point of the story. The janazah did him no good. And the shroud did him no good. And the man as we can take from these ayat is not living very well in the hereafter. But look

00:22:59--> 00:23:37

at the character and the response of your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the concern that the prophets like Selim had, for the message of Islam and the strength of the prophets lie some over his own emotions, how fully in control he was on his emotions to realize that someone is trying to poke at him and this isn't the first time the prophets lie. Some was poked up. I want you to imagine if as you're reading the Seattle book, you came across the prophets lie Selim in Makkah. And Abu Jamal came and push the prophets lie Selim and the prophets lie Selim picked up some, you know, camel waist or something like that and threw it in his face and jumped on him and screamed at him

00:23:37--> 00:24:15

and started throwing punches at him. How would it make you feel about your messengers to license? He didn't? He would be justified in doing so. If you were in that situation, you probably would have done it would just be one of those comments that you wouldn't have even waited for Abuja to physically try to assault you. But when the prophets lie Selim he holds a different standard. And also also i Salam understood that people were trying to get them to their level. They were trying to reduce him to their level. And if the province likes them would have killed the ultimate Allah. This is a very powerful comment and there is if not the salam Rahim, Allah to Allah Futaba. Dhaka, I was

00:24:15--> 00:24:49

I was really blown away by the statement. He said that hypocrites have no principles. He said, If the Prophet slicin them would have killed Abdullah Abdullah even said rule, the other hypocrites would have been happy, even though they were following our beloved or Mavin saloon, because then they would have had a cos. See, that's what's your leaders like? Look, we've got another guy now that can come solve the problem, because they have no values. They have no principles. They just want you to stoop to their level. All because of the sake of ego or pride. All because of the sake of someone trying to gain some sense of notoriety, someone trying to gain some sense of prominence,

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

and you should never fall for that. Because you don't just represent yourself as a Muslim, especially not in the 21st century. You represent an entire religion.

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

You represent an entire way of life. I you know what, you should have the decency, you know, in your house not to beat your wife. You should have that decency. But when you beat your wife, not only have you personally corrupted yourself, the media will eat it up and say much, you know, look, look at what these Muslims do vicious Muslim, and they'll find that you watched a YouTube video of someone in Yemen one day. That's it, call us they've got the case on you. You know, they'll say that you watch the YouTube video and it reflects poorly on the entire community. Not only has your personal facade ruined you, it's ruined the entire community. How many of these sexual assault cases

00:25:38--> 00:26:16

do we see going around the country right now? It damages and disgraces an entire community. So if you aren't if you don't have the decency to hold yourself back on a personal level, from corrupting yourself, at least do it for the sake of your religion. And that's not to say that all of these things are justified that once the media lets up on us go back to doing those things. Absolutely not. That's not what I'm saying. But even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for something that was entirely justified, was concerned about the perception of this religion, it matters. And that shows strength on your part. When you are able to take the moral high ground every single time

00:26:16--> 00:26:54

and you don't let it push you to their level. You treat these things like they're beneath you, you know, subhanAllah I want you guys to reflect there's a hadith obviously, Lisa should either be Surah that Verily, the strong person is not the one who can fight and who can argue and who can yell louder and who can wrestle. But instead the prophets lie. Some said studied Allah, the Yemeni kunafa and a lot of the one who controls himself in anger. I want you to reflect on this for a moment. You know, subhanAllah and really look at yourself, because we live in a time where every small incident becomes a global incident. You know, Subhan Allah, I want you to think about this. I was I was

00:26:54--> 00:27:25

reflecting on the IOA Allah subhanaw says in Allah Allah, you don't wanna become an hatha yoga you will not be unfussy him Allah does not change the people until they change that which is within themselves. And any man who reports to him Allah says this refers to alarm. Well, hospice refers to the the community, and it refers to the individual, okay, you change yourself, things change around you. That's the way it works in this day and age of the internet. So I don't know how many strange, random small acts of kindness went viral

00:27:27--> 00:28:07

and became global news. The world loves terrible news. And the world loves small field good stories. The Internet eats it up. They love terrible news. It gives an excuse for people to load them to say the world is over and to excuse themselves from their own personal corruptions and their own personal disgraces. But you know what, they also love the small field good stories like SubhanAllah. Last week, there is a lady that had a daughter with special needs. And she was kicking the seat in front of her in a plane. And the man, you know, kept turning around and smiling and playing with the girl. And after that she wrote a letter. Because the girl was actually calling the man daddy, she

00:28:07--> 00:28:19

wrote a letter to the man in sixth to daddy in quotation marks and 16. See, she wrote the seat number, just a sweet letter thanking him. And that went viral. And you know what 40 million people saw that letter.

00:28:20--> 00:28:59

It's smart Allah, one act of kindness. You represent your religion, you represent your faith. One time someone treats you in a certain way. And you show that you show the kindness of your religion, you represent the ethics of your religion, understanding what your role is, what your position is. I'm not saying you do that. So we can go viral on YouTube. I'm saying you do that for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And you never know what would happen as a result of that. You never know because what affects us now locally and individually has can have global implications. We see that right now the city of Irving became a national spotlight because of an insignificant bill. Right? So

00:28:59--> 00:29:39

for negative news, small community, things can become big things. And for positive news as well. It's our job as individuals and as communities to make sure that it's on the positive side, that you know what Valley Ranch Masjid becomes such a powerhouse in its community being unlikely to Allah and such an involved you don't Masjid organization in its community, that somehow it breaks global news inshallah Tada, and we would hope we're able to touch someone's heart, even in Australia, to say that this is what our religion stands for. We don't do it for that we do it for Allah subhanaw taala. But that extra motivation is there that we want our religion to be seen in a certain way as

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

well. We're not compromising on anything. We want to do that in a way that we live our religion and we understand Subhanallah each and every single one of you. It's not just the Imam that represents you. It's you on an individual level. It's you on an individual level, you represent this religion, even in your family. Even when you're in your home. You represent your religion. You never

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

know whether it's in your family or whether it's in that restaurant or whether it's at that bus stop or whatever it may be. You never know when your act of kindness or your act of corruption can turn people to or away from Allah subhanaw taala make sure that you act in a way that you turn people to Allah subhanaw taala and you don't let your ego take you to corruption, or the ego of someone else that's trying to climb on your backs reduce you as well. Don't let that happen to you. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us representatives of our faith in our individual and in our public lives. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless us with sincerity and to bless us with a sense of adept

00:30:40--> 00:30:52

and good manners and to allow us to follow the example of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all of the standards he set for us Allah Allah Ameen Akula Cody hada was stuck for a while you will accompany certainly must mean for stuff you know, in the whole of affordable him.

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen whatever Guan Illa nobody mean without people to live with chuckling Allahumma salli wa sallam roboticle adekola Sudha Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. While early he was looking to sell them to Seaman cathedra. Your brothers and sisters I want to leave you with a beautiful narration about a great man by the name of Ibrahim Adham Rahim Allah Tala. And there are many beautiful narrations about Ibrahim no Adam Rahim Allah is a great man with great virtue great advice and great character. And one day he was walking and he was of the greatest of

00:31:34--> 00:32:18

a man of hate but a man that's that's that had a presence to him. And a man was walking his dog the sounds very American now, doesn't it? A man was walking his dog right by him. And the man said to Abraham, you know Adam Rahim Allah. He said he had to cut up how is your beard more pure? Or my cat had my dog? Which one is pure might be your beard or my dog. And one narration even said to them the tail of the doc, which one's pure which one has more at the Hata he's trying to get O'Brien rather, Rahim Allah to exchange some harsh words with them. He said, Well, if my Latvia makes it to Jana, then if my beard makes it to Jana, then it's a part of them. It's purer than the than the tail of

00:32:18--> 00:32:42

your dog. The tail of your dog makes it to Jana and my beard makes it to hellfire than the tail of your dog is probably pure. And he just walked away. And the man Subhanallah that tried to reduce him to try to get him to get into those heated words. You know what he did? He came up to him. And he said to him, I swear by Allah, that these are the manners of prophets. I said to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah to Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah.

00:32:44--> 00:33:24

It changed him SubhanAllah. I mean, how did an exchange about dogs and beards turn into a Shahada? Think about that, how did that even happen? That's not even the goal here. That means that you hold yourself in a certain, in a certain position, understanding the implications of every single word that comes out of your mouth, and every single action. And truly you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah that you don't if you're not a means for people, you know, coming to Allah subhanaw taala that you never become a hindrance for people. You never become something someone that turns people awake Subhanallah last night at the city council meeting. And you know, for those of you that want to see

00:33:24--> 00:34:01

He said what he said I don't know how you all sit there and and show your restraints while people insult you that way. He said it's really it's mind blowing. He said even as a reporter, I'm holding back my tears. He said I'm surprised not more than one person had an outburst. Now, of course, the media will cover outburst. He said I'm surprised not more than one person had an outburst. And subhanAllah last night, he actually followed me on Twitter. So he actually pulled up

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

my name and we actually were exchanging messages. And this is a prominent newscaster here in Dallas Subhanallah exchanging messages. And he was just talking about how he felt watching the Muslims that kept their dignity last night, keep your dignity Dear brothers and sisters keep your dignity and contribute. It's Fabula T ASAM. I want everyone to register to vote and shout lots out after the summer and have you know make a difference in your city council. But beyond that, let's think about ways we can build bridges in our community and Shala and show people what our religion is. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us a means of people being guided to him and to make us a means

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

of the faith that the beautiful messengers, the lice and I'm brought is presented in a beautiful way and we ask Allah subhanaw taala not to make us of people that disgraced themselves, or disgrace that which is precious, we ask Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings. And we ask Allah subhana wa not to allow our personal shortcomings to become things that bring darkness upon our community or on the image of our faith, a llama fitted and what we need.
