In the battle

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

between the Persians and the Muslims, the Persians they were 280,000. And the Muslims, they will only tend to 20,000.

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

He sent

00:00:27--> 00:00:39

a young boy, your age, a young man, by the name of Mohammed, he sent him to negotiate some terms of peace with who, with littlestone, the leader of the Persian army, now comes along

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

and tries to provoke him. He says, What's with you?

00:00:46--> 00:01:11

What would you add up? You have the lowest civilization compared compared to the Roman civilization compared to the Greek civilization compared to the Indian civilization. What brought you you a bunch of shepherds in the desert? One Croce here? Under no basis? Yes, you're right. Yes, sir. Hey, you're right. You we were bush of shepherds in the desert? What? If that's the law?

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

Woman

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

in

00:01:24--> 00:01:27

this house, yes, you're right. But we have a vision mission,

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

to bring people out of worshipping people to worship them

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

out from the types of

00:01:36--> 00:01:40

equipment out from the atrocities of other religions, just

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

to make up your mind.

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

My brothers and sisters, I have a message geared towards the youth. This message is geared towards those

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

that carry the flag of La ilaha illAllah.

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

A message geared towards the air that we preach

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

the youth, how should they be?

00:02:08--> 00:02:26

About 15 years ago, I was doing my masters in San Francisco State in California. And I took a psychology psychology course, at the end of the course, the teacher said something quite interesting. At the very end of the course, he said,

00:02:27--> 00:02:32

What is it that you want people to say about you? After your after your death?

00:02:33--> 00:02:42

What is it that you want people to say about you after you die? Which means how do you want to be remembered? after you die?

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

From that day on, I still live with the question. How do I want to be remembered?

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

What legacy Am I going to leave behind me?

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

What is your vision? What is your mission? What is your message in life?

00:02:59--> 00:03:04

Then by comes my message to all of you? Because for me, all of you are youth.

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

And this message inshallah will be in form of questions.

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

I'd like you to ponder upon these questions.

00:03:14--> 00:03:49

Think and ponder upon these questions. But first, I'd like to take some illustrations, some nomadic nomadic Jimena Chabad and Athena Yo, Terry, I'd like to take a couple illustrations from some youth who had a vision, some youth who had a mission who changed history. First, I'd like to use the example on the situation of Ibrahim and a sinner. He was a young boy was a young man who did not accept the fact that his people were worshipping idols, what did he do?

00:03:51--> 00:04:06

He went and he destroyed those idols that these people were worshipping. And then when they went inquiring as to who this took those idols Allah subhanho wa Taala briefly describes it in the Quran, he says,

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

is number 16 Semana Santa.

00:04:13--> 00:04:17

We heard of cha cha, cha cha in Arabic means a boy

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

by the name of

00:04:23--> 00:04:39

so they went, trying to kill him by him and he said, What did they do? They throw him into the place in fire, but did the fire burn him? The fire didn't burning Why? Because the fire is nothing but the creation of Allah. It burns with the wind and permission of Allah.

00:04:40--> 00:04:52

Nothing can happen without the will and permission of Allah. Nothing can move without the will and permission of Allah. So much so that Allah subhanho wa Taala trees the fire and he said yeah, no Cooney

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

fire be queued and peacefully by him, but Allah subhanho wa Taala said

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

Fire

00:05:01--> 00:05:11

on Ibrahim, baby to death. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh fire be cool and peaceful was cinnamon Anna Ibrahim.

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

So did the nice

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

as he

00:05:18--> 00:05:54

slept with his son, then life got an order from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Not to kill not to slaughter the knife, the job of a knife is to kill the job of a knife is to slaughter the job of a knife. It's a chop, but the knife got an order from who from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Not to kill not to struggle, so much so that it's married to his father or father put my face against the ground. I don't want you to look at me when he slapped me. Why? Because you may have some mercy for him. If you were to look at my face, I don't want you to look at my face, put my face against the ground at this talk to me. So the fight is not slaughter.

00:05:55--> 00:06:00

So is so did the poison at the time of credibility in the

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

machete well.

00:06:05--> 00:06:21

He had some poison in his hand when he saw him and he says what is that in your head? He said, That's poison. What are you supposed to do with it? He says, I'm supposed to end it. I don't want to be called as prisoner of war. If I were to be caught as a prisoner of war, I would take this poison. And then hydraway says, Give me that poison.

00:06:23--> 00:06:30

Give me that poison. He took it. He says he ate it. Did it kill him like didn't kill him? Why?

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

from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:37--> 00:06:46

Rest assured that nothing happens without the wind and permission of Allah. All we have to do you and I is to dedicate our affairs to, to Allah.

00:06:49--> 00:06:54

To Allah. Put your trust in Allah. Put your faith in Allah.

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

dedicate your affairs to Allah.

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

Allah,

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

Allah, Who is the one who can give life Allah Who is the one who can give that Allah Who is the one who can give the cure. Allah was the one who can give Shiva Allah

00:07:12--> 00:07:15

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

Allah

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

put your trust in Allah.

00:07:24--> 00:07:42

Allah example of illustration on the use of the young boy, it's all about the youngsters, the carriers of the flag of La Jolla comes this boy went by His story is mentioned in Salatu bluej.

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

In Yemen,

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

a king by the name of universe,

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

who claimed

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

that he was God, came this boy who learned the religion of

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:02--> 00:08:06

Now, the king caught him, and threatened to kill him

00:08:07--> 00:08:23

to denounce his religion, but the kid refused to renounce his religion. So the king, order his soldiers to take him into the top of the mountain, drop him, kill him, get rid of him. And so they did. But lo and behold,

00:08:25--> 00:08:28

what did the kids say? The kid said this

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

message.

00:08:33--> 00:08:39

You're taking off them in any way you wish. I said, tried to kill the boy. And then the boy said, these two are Allahu

00:08:40--> 00:08:47

Allah subhanho wa Taala, save the boy and killed the other soldiers who wanted to kill him. And now the boy sounded safe.

00:08:48--> 00:09:21

The boy could have run away, the boy could have changed and run away. I went to a different town, different city, but he chose to go and meet the king. Why? Because he had the vision. Because he had the missile mission because he had the message to deliver to the king. He went back. And then again one more time, the king ordered the other soldiers take this guy to get rid of him kill him. They took him into the middle of the ocean, and then they tried to kill him. What did the guy what did the boy saying? He said, I love him mccreaney if

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

you take care of them in any way you wish

00:09:27--> 00:09:45

to call up the boy. One more time, Southern safe, he decided to go back and fix the kink. Now, he told the kink. The only way you'd be able to kill me is that you positioned me by tree. But then before you shoot me, you've got to say Bismillah

00:09:47--> 00:09:52

Bismillah una una fecha

00:09:53--> 00:09:57

Bismillah In the Name of Allah, the Lord of the boy.

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

You've got to bring the

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

Our people to witness this. I want everybody to witness this. You bring me before you should. You've got to say Bismillah out loud. People have to hear you. They've got to hear you say Bismillah

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

that's the only way you can kill me.

00:10:17--> 00:10:21

So he did call people to witness this. He didn't want

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

to

00:10:28--> 00:10:28

comment on

00:10:30--> 00:10:42

what is the crime? What happened was, he did he went, but he fully shot him. He says Bismillah Al Rahman, who In the name of Allah in the name of the Lord of the boy shot kill him.

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

Kill him. But the message across the entire people of that town in praise the religion of eight

What is their crime? their crime is that they have said

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

So is the crime of a lot of youth. A lot of people out there saying that either heilala been tortured and executed. Just because they chose to say that in a high Lama.

00:16:52--> 00:17:13

Who are your friends? Really? A friend is a mirror onto you. If you were to look at your friend, you should see yourself. So who are your friends? The Prophet alayhi salatu salam says in the Hadith reported by the student very sound he says a man shall follow the footsteps of his close friends. Let each one of you meticulously choose their friends. Who are they?

00:17:36--> 00:17:39

That day, a man shall say before Allah.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

those friends that you hang out with today?

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

I ask Allah subhana wa tada to help us to practice.

Message number three, are you proud of your religion?

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

Are you proud of your identity? Are you proud of who you are?

00:19:44--> 00:19:49

Let me share with you another illustration of some youth. And let's compare and contrast.

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

In the Battle of a party

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

between the Persians and the Muslims, the Persians they will

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

180,000 and the Muslims, they will only tend to 20,000

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

he sent

00:20:10--> 00:20:22

a young boy, your age, a young man, by the name of Abraham, and he sent him to negotiate some terms of peace with who, with the leader of the Persian army, no comms.

00:20:23--> 00:20:26

And the rooster tries to provoke him, as he says,

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

melody

00:20:45--> 00:20:47

comes loose to try to provoke.

00:20:48--> 00:20:50

And then he goes, What's with you?

00:20:51--> 00:21:16

What would you add up? You have the last civilization compare compared to the Roman civilization compared to the Greek civilization compared to the Indian civilization? What got you you have a bunch of shepherds in the desert, one Croce here? And the nobody says yes, you're right. Yes, sir. Hey, you're right, you will push us shepherds in the desert? What if the

00:21:29--> 00:21:48

But we have a vision, we have a mission of us in the south, to bring people out from the from worshipping people to worship Allah, to bring them out from the tightness of this dunya to the vastness of Africa, to bring people out from from the atrocities of other religions to the justice of an Eastern,

you have three days to make up your mind. Just to make up your mind, either you embrace Islam, or you pay the jizya. And we shall protect you or

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

the second day, another Sahabi came

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

to negotiate the same terms.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

And then he said exactly the same thing.

00:22:13--> 00:22:32

And as often said, your your brother said the same thing. He said, Yes, because we checked from the same cup. And you only have three days, which in fact started yesterday. So you only have two days to make up your mind. choose for yourself. 280,000 10,000 20,000 no activity whatsoever. But

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

they are the pride of being Muslim.

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

Unlike some of the youth out there nowadays.

00:22:42--> 00:22:55

has no pride, to ask your system to associate themselves with something called is them so much so that they go changing their names, changing that identity, trying to act like they are cool, but they are fooled. Really.

00:22:58--> 00:23:06

So are you proud of your identity? Think what have you done for Islam? message number four.

Maybe some other time he will come he will leave your friend and he will take you
