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

The title of the talk

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

is my dear sister.

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

For the past two months

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

I have been traveling all over the world almost.

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

I went to a lot of Muslim countries

00:00:38--> 00:00:39

and I felt

00:00:42--> 00:00:44

that Islam

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

is stronger

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

in the West

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

isn't that Saturday?

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

I felt

00:00:59--> 00:01:01

that when I'm here, I feel a man.

00:01:04--> 00:01:11

But when I'm there, it certainly came culture for the most of the Muslims.

00:01:12--> 00:01:26

They go to the masjid not because they love the masjid. And I know this is not a journalist should not be journalists statement, but a lot of them they go to the message because everybody is going to the masjid

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

serata tarawih last year

00:01:33--> 00:01:39

the email will say Alif Lam him daddy Kalki tabula rasa he too is Allahu Akbar.

00:01:40--> 00:01:47

But he here the email will read one Jews. And the people are still saying we want more.

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

I wanted the Muslim country.

00:01:53--> 00:02:10

And I realized everything almost every single sister was was to look like Western women. They want to dress like them. They want to put makeup like them. They want to work they wear their outfits and dresses and all that.

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

Then I come here

00:02:15--> 00:02:15

and I see

00:02:16--> 00:02:18


00:02:20--> 00:02:21

we got on the plane.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

And the sisters got on the plane with us

00:02:27--> 00:02:31

with new clubs and our buyer a buyer tell us you know

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

and then as soon as we took off

00:02:37--> 00:02:48

this this is my show there's a lineup in the bathroom. And I'm like a long walk are they gonna make woohoo? I'm ready to rock after traveling with the light hand. But they know they came back with miniskirts

00:02:50--> 00:02:54

as though a law only is on the land.

00:02:55--> 00:03:00

And as soon as they leave a law is no longer with them.

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

So for us here,

00:03:04--> 00:03:15

Islam is something that we want. We desire. We we passionate about it, but for them is a cultural thing. Took them for granted.

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

And today

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

I was asked to speak about

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

sisters, women in the Koran

00:03:27--> 00:03:33

and I all the brothers leave, I really do not care. But I don't want one sister to leave.

00:03:35--> 00:03:39

In the Koran Allah mentioned 17

00:03:40--> 00:03:44

women in the Koran 17 of them

00:03:45--> 00:03:52

three of them from the people of jahannam 14 from the people of Jenna

00:03:55--> 00:04:08

and you will see some of the examples and lessons that we can learn so we don't have to take Islam for granted and just be a cultural thing should be part of our beings.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

And our start with this

00:04:13--> 00:04:20

lady that a law mentioned in the Quran and the Messenger of Allah mentioned her in the Sunnah

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

in Surah t Emraan

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

Elia on

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

in the last

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

101 Ebola him why

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

Allah chose Adam Allah he set out to a Salaam

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

and he chose nor he set out to us

00:04:46--> 00:04:51

and he chose the family of Ibrahim and the family of Enron

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

and then a loss

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

is the audits when the remember when the wife of it

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

him on set. Now this lady, we really do not know much about her.

00:05:07--> 00:05:18

And when we talk about great women of Islam, or the women that are on we don't talk about her. I'm not going to be talking much about it, but I'm just going to give you a little bit of information about her.

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

See this lady?

00:05:22--> 00:05:26

She was deprived from having children.

00:05:27--> 00:05:31

Her name was Hannah bent.

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

Come up on it. Mm hmm. Well, Kathy bit of Siri.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

This way, while she was walking One day, she saw Burton this.

00:05:45--> 00:05:51

As she saw the mother bird coming, flying back to the nest and feedings, chicken babies.

00:05:52--> 00:06:01

And then that moved her. And then she said, Yeah, Allah blessed me with a child, one child.

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

And a law accepted her

00:06:07--> 00:06:17

Emraan came home, she got ready for her husband. And from that night, Allah blessed them with a child pregnant, she got pregnant.

00:06:19--> 00:06:36

She got very excited. And she said your last since you gave me this challenging answer my I will do something that is so unique, and it is for you. It's hard. It's for you. It's so pure for you. It is only for you.

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

And then she said, as a law mentioned in

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

Cora be in in America, Murphy

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

means pure

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

photocurable. Except for me.

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

Now she wanted this child to be a boy.

00:07:00--> 00:07:06

And she wanted this boy to serve the Kennedys and the church messed it up.

00:07:08--> 00:07:21

She wanted him to be a servant of that house, clean, take care of it. Learn in that building, you know, teach you when he reaches a certain level. This is was her dream.

00:07:23--> 00:07:27

And then so Panama. Panama. Voila.

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

Now imagine She's so excited. It is a gift for Allah.

00:07:34--> 00:07:44

She didn't want him to have PLT to study until he reached the level of PhD older. She didn't want him to be a businessman. She want him to be a servant.

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

For a man.

00:07:48--> 00:08:03

She realized that she delivered a baby girl. Now you can imagine how disappointed she was gonna be Oh, my lord in Nuala to hang on. I have dinner a female

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

we're long on a movie.

00:08:09--> 00:08:13

And ally knows what she did. And then a law said, according to the

00:08:14--> 00:08:18

acceptable bucket of knowledge, they served according to them.

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

They said then a law said

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

what he said.

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

They said

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

he said the mill is not like the female.

00:08:36--> 00:08:42

She wants that boy to be a servant of God. But Allah says no, no, no. Now women are not like women.

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

They know they cannot be on the same level where they said Decker can own

00:08:51--> 00:08:56

a law. According to the rule, there is a law saying thing here.

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

What one woman can do for the oma one may or may not be able to achieve.

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

And then she named her child, Oliver in May two or Maria

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

but look at what you feel.

00:09:14--> 00:09:14


00:09:16--> 00:09:20

look at the mentality of Hannah, this lady.

00:09:21--> 00:09:29

Her aim was I want to have a child that was served as Dean that will serve his Lord, that will be our son.

00:09:30--> 00:09:44

Not someone who is going to be a famous and a basketball player, football player, you know, entertainers singer in an act of No, no, she want him to be a servant. Now the sisters nowadays in the Mara hemara book.

00:09:46--> 00:09:58

They are not on the same level of understanding. They don't understand that Allah set above them where they said that God who can own that they not like you. They do not like us.

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

Even like us, and it is so sad when I see a Muslim and they follow the non Muslim women thinking that oh, this is freedom. This is you know, we are fighting for the rights of women what Allah already made you better than what you can ever achieve by following them.

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

And look

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

what Marian did

00:10:25--> 00:10:43

when she got pregnant I sisters, put yourself in her shoes. You're not married. You known as a righteous lady. You in the musty that up for 24 seven. And all of a sudden you come back and you tell everybody, I'm pregnant.

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

Now can you imagine

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

what was going in here? fosse

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

to the point that she said, I wish if I died before this.

00:10:58--> 00:11:09

I wish I never existed. Welcome to this gentleman sia because nobody's gonna believe that this child that I'm carrying is a route from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

And then Subhanallah

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

that was not bad enough.

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

Her concern was not bad enough.

00:11:24--> 00:11:39

When she was delivering that baby and she was in labor. And listen, sisters, I know a lot of the sisters. You know, when the in labor when they go into that room, they say their husband come in, you know, this baby did not come by himself. You'd better be here, boy, you know.

00:11:41--> 00:12:01

And then she grabs his hand and the man is all shaking and he doesn't want to pass out. And then she thinks it is you who make me pregnant. It is you you live the devil it is you and some of the brothers Mashallah they come back out of the hospital injured. I said What happened? She said he bit me here. She beat me there. Mashallah, that

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

came back out came out one piece?

00:12:07--> 00:12:23

No, but I lost that when she was in that situation. And no man can ever, ever imagine the pain mothers go through when they're delivering their child. I know. We think we know what they go through. But we can never, ever imagine that pain.

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

And then what did I lost later?

00:12:27--> 00:12:35

What was he? Is it No, you just don't sit under that tree and deliver No, grab the trunk of that tree and shake,

00:12:37--> 00:12:37


00:12:39--> 00:12:40

And that the dates fall?

00:12:42--> 00:12:52

Now, it was not bad enough that she's in labor. She's concerned about the child and what the people will say about her, but she has to do the work and shake the tree.

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

says what if you

00:12:57--> 00:13:04

are on one? Why did Allah mention that? Or because you know the page was ending a lot needed more words? No, there's a achema

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

Hickman is

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

you need to work for this day. And even at the worst time of your life, the time that you cannot concentrate cannot think about anything else. You should still work for this.

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

Because without you there is no Dean no Islam

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

as Islam it should be.

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

And then Subhana Allah.

00:13:32--> 00:13:41

Look at the Quran. And look when Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to give them a mini in an exam a

00:13:42--> 00:13:48

perfect example for me or Mina and a perfect example for Kevin and a calf.

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

We did a loss

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

while blah blah blah who method and the lady in a cafaro on law gave an example for those who does believe in Marathi new hinweg merata Lu Khanna, Tata Tata eliminated

00:14:07--> 00:14:14

00:14:15--> 00:14:19

and then he said well more of a long method and Lynnette ina Amano

00:14:22--> 00:14:35

in Marathi around a loss of imagine it you have the best of the best. Allah has all the poverty the messengers, in the sooner we have 24,000 prophets

00:14:36--> 00:14:55

and 330 and 333 messengers over long we have solid him. We are people who fought for the sake of Allah. We have Mujahideen, we have people who gave their lives give their will for the sake of Allah. But when came when comes to the true example of a moment, Allah did not choose us.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

Who is because of him, the son stopped

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

In a good example of Christina who gave of his office always is well, but Allah said well but have a law who method and the lady in Amman

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

Mina in Marathi.

00:15:15--> 00:15:18

And imagine, if you say orange,

00:15:19--> 00:15:44

orange, they all orange, but you want to showcase certain elements or certain examples of that orange that you sell or that you have. And you go on you you select the best is that this is what I need to showcase so that people can see, imagine and what is the method in Allah, Allah has all this society in all this messengers in the prophets of Allah but he showcase to women

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

in fear around us even to Muslim

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

when Maria malnati, Asana de faraja, find a foreigner.

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

The best of all examples.

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

We need women like that

00:16:02--> 00:16:24

we need a solid half women who will win when they come. They know the rules, they know what they need to do. They know what why Allah made them Muslim and why Allah brought you to this western country, why Allah subhana wa tada made you're walking around that is walking the streets of the city of Toronto, why?

00:16:30--> 00:16:41

You know, what I lost valuable Fox's remind tell them, I'll tell you and I know you heard this story again and again, in many places, story of the

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

story of our dad,

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

and how he relied on his wife, Subhana Allah.

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

And then who is wealthy.

00:16:52--> 00:16:57

He has a form that has over three or 600 palm trees or de trees.

00:16:58--> 00:17:11

And he's sitting next to the messenger of the law. He wants to, you know, gain the Baraka, and now you know, and learn from the messenger over law. And then all of a sudden, when he's when he's sitting there, or your team,

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

or your team comes by now.

00:17:18--> 00:17:23

And his eyes are sharing here, the team, little boy,

00:17:24--> 00:17:43

and this little boy, he has no argument, but he's going with his emotions and feelings. And he said he was all alone messenger of Allah. And I know some of you can never feel how your team feels. But it is so painful when the child is the team and he has no support.

00:17:44--> 00:17:50

And the only support that he could find and confer that he could find was in the messenger of a law.

00:17:51--> 00:17:57

And he says, You're a solo law. My father passed away.

00:17:58--> 00:18:06

And we're at an apnea surah and I want to build a wall between my farm and my neighbor's farm.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

What authority

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

but upon a tree from that farm

00:18:15--> 00:18:18

is between me and erecting that wall.

00:18:19--> 00:18:29

For how to design TV, I say to my neighbor, Araki. Yeah, give it to me. It's just a one treat. You don't need it. Give it to me. And he said, No.

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

I said, then sell it to me. And he said no.

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

And so a lot a lot of unknown out assuming that I will take this case to the messenger over law.

00:18:43--> 00:18:56

So the messenger over law who was raised as the a team, and he knows the feeling of being a team, and how painful it is. He said, let us call them man.

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

See, they call the man

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

for Allah. Give me give him the tree. And the man said laya Rasul Allah, a man from the answer, he say, nyatoh Salalah. And we love unsought and from the sign of a man that we love the answer, and from the sign of Nevada is to hate the answer. We love them but this Ansari, he said, Leah rasulillah, my hack my tree, I'm not giving up for sell it to him.

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

For homology, the man stood up and he left.

00:19:36--> 00:19:44

You can imagine how devastated that child was. how upset How sad that child was.

00:19:45--> 00:19:56

And then the man the messenger over law said, Yeah, haha. He said, yo, yeah, this, my brother. He said, Listen, Erica, yeah, give it to him. What john is

00:19:58--> 00:19:59


00:20:00--> 00:20:09

This your team and you have a tree in general. He said I don't want it I don't want that tree in general. I don't want it he's um he's so upset

00:20:10--> 00:20:11


00:20:12--> 00:20:13

he got up

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

and you walked behind them

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

for what if?

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

Do you remember? Do you know my farm? Jonathan? He's a who doesn't call over here that

00:20:30--> 00:20:38

is a it is yours for that tree color test as it will be. Are you making fun of me or allow one lie?

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

It is yours for that.

00:20:42--> 00:20:43


00:20:44--> 00:20:46

the future is up to you.

00:20:47--> 00:20:57

There is no hiding a tree that I made the case was taken to the messenger. I don't want to take it and I'll take it 600 trees instead of that tree.

00:20:58--> 00:21:01

So the man that came back

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

for holla Yasser Allah

00:21:05--> 00:21:12

is that we were still standing still there. He said, Yes, Allah Yara sola la vaca.

00:21:13--> 00:21:16

I bought that tree and it is for this team.

00:21:18--> 00:21:21

For Rasulullah sallallahu he was

00:21:22--> 00:21:25

coming in the Rada in the Ibiza

00:21:27--> 00:21:32

is he how many trees palm trees in general for

00:21:33--> 00:21:43

a Nevada he got up and he was I walked to his farm where his house his wife and children for

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

for Kalia, oma da da

00:21:49--> 00:21:49

da da da.

00:21:51--> 00:21:54

And she c'est la vie aka data.

00:21:55--> 00:22:07

Eg to get out of the form. Cora Neiman, why God Africa a bear to her I have sold it. She said to whom? On an India.

00:22:09--> 00:22:12

I sold it to a law and His Messenger.

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

What is he saying?

00:22:15--> 00:22:23

This is say let me call 911. You are insane. You lost your mind now online on it, or on the handbag?

00:22:25--> 00:22:26


00:22:29--> 00:22:31

a successful transaction or how about that.

00:22:32--> 00:22:34

And then the children,

00:22:35--> 00:22:54

the children, they want to get out of the farm they want to get out of the agenda. And then the mother she was checking the pockets saying that if they have some of that data, then they would this day they were on this day was their own. And then one of the kids had data in his mouth. She took her

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

and she said I bought a banner

00:22:59--> 00:23:02

on my child. We sold it to Allah.

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

And they came out of the farm with the nothing.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

We need women in Islam. Women like those

00:23:13--> 00:23:16

women like the wife of Muslim,

00:23:17--> 00:23:33

who their husband, their husband is in downtown, and he's dealing with this and he's busy with teaching and he's building in the on the street of the city of Toronto whatever city that he is from, she will take the responsibility of being a mother like the wife of Moses.

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

When he aniseh when he saw Nara flame called le le Cousteau, he said to his family stay remain here. I see a fire.

00:23:48--> 00:24:14

Do you see anywhere in the Quran? Allah is talking about what she did with the children which she did with with is no we don't know what she did, but it is given. Why because her husband musala his Salatu was Salam was delivering the message of Allah and she was mining her job taking care of the children, mining her children and so on. We need Muslim,

00:24:15--> 00:24:20

Muslim, a true Muslim as a loss of Hannah what Allah mentioned in the Quran.

00:24:22--> 00:24:23

The three women

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

that Allah mentioned in the Quran, from the people of Johanna,

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

look what they did.

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

Look what did. One of them was the wife of noon.

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

What is he used to do? The wife of new

00:24:42--> 00:24:52

she used to spy on Nora she used to tell her people how many people accepted Islam with no so they can be tortured.

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

And she drowned with her people.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

The wife of Lord

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

She reported those people, the angels who came in the shape of men, to her people. And they said that we have a very handsome young men who came, come and committed out on thing, the world with them.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

And the third one

00:25:17--> 00:25:21

was, is the wife of our lab was the wife of Allah.

00:25:22--> 00:25:28

What was her job? Her job was to support her husband fighting is.

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

Now my question to us sisters.

00:25:34--> 00:25:51

Do you play the role of Miriam Asya, the wife of Moosa, the mother of Moosa, you know, do you play that role, or you play the role of oma Janine, the wife of Avila

00:25:52--> 00:26:13

that she supports her husband, I'm talking about the scissors you support your husband, when he's going to work, you support your husband, when he's doing overtime, you support your husband when he wants to buy, you know, a large flat TV screen, you know, you support everything hard on but what comes to you the last person to support

00:26:15--> 00:26:16

see, our TV

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

in the west and the east.

00:26:22--> 00:26:27

wherever we are, wherever I'm sorry, you are sisters, you are the carrier of the torch,

00:26:29--> 00:26:32

you all are the other only hope that are the way I see it

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

that can change the future of the oma

00:26:37--> 00:26:42

you know, go and see your children, including mine, go see your children

00:26:44--> 00:26:50

where they might taking care of them the babies sitting and observe the behavior.

00:26:52--> 00:27:14

And then you will see that we we raising, raising little brats. You know, little kids or they want something they get it. They desire something, they have it. They we don't teach them. We don't teach them how to be strong. We don't give them the strong personality. Like Sophia

00:27:15--> 00:27:30

Mother of is available. We don't give them that. We raised them little rabbits. And if they don't get what they want and the way they cry, and we give them including our just go look at your children, aka my children, except

00:27:31--> 00:27:43

in America, we need to change the play. And we need to be strong. And we use this as we need you to raise men who will take over this D

00:27:45--> 00:27:52

not cheeseburger generation. Not children who just you know, like in a vanilla ice cream.

00:27:53--> 00:27:58

No. You know, I have a son of little boy His name is in the US and I love him dearly.

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

You know, and his mother is not Somali

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

so he's a little bit fair.

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

And he loves to be like his dad black, you know.

00:28:13--> 00:28:18

So when we were here, just to show you how, you know, vanilla ice cream they all are.

00:28:20--> 00:28:24

They when we here used to be under the senate say I want to be as black as my daddy.

00:28:26--> 00:28:27

And then I took him to Saudi

00:28:28--> 00:28:34

one solar salata vote and he comes back and he says, Daddy, I love you. But it's too hard. I'm not going for Serato

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

and I said, What have we done?

00:28:39--> 00:28:40

What have we done?

00:28:42--> 00:28:48

But as well when our when it comes back crying say you know that boy beaming up, his mother would whip him

00:28:49--> 00:28:50

as a BM man.

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

The tough

00:28:54--> 00:28:56

so how are we there?

00:28:57--> 00:29:17

I know you already read the Koran. And I'm not gonna show here tell you something that is new. But I'm on with all of that I'm asking you is just play your role and start being what these people project for you. Don't be part of their product, but be the product of
