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

way of Filipino

Amanda

Columbia canal along

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

with

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

Mohammed in so long Ronnie yourself

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

worship

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

what could

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

be better? What could look better?

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

What could know what is now?

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

If you learn

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

Kala Hosanna

00:01:38--> 00:01:44

in the law you have a euro mob, your moment Hatoyama, Euro Moravian foresee him

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

a loss of hurt Oh, what I stated in the on

00:01:52--> 00:01:58

that he will not change the condition of people until they change their own condition.

00:02:01--> 00:02:02

What does that mean?

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

It means that change has to come from us.

00:02:11--> 00:02:21

desire has to come from us, knowing we need it. And then when that happens, and when it comes from us, then our loss of Carnival what

00:02:22--> 00:02:28

would allow the people to change and the conditional people to change.

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

But if we just stay under the same circumstances,

00:02:36--> 00:02:43

not wanting to change not not allowing to change, then the condition of the moment will not change.

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

That's why I lost the panel what to

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

keep in

00:02:51--> 00:03:02

mind we only had a euro maybe unforeseen last minute of the year the change has to come from us.

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

Then you may say by the same

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

you on the speakers before us

00:03:10--> 00:03:13

you on the Hot leaves before you

00:03:14--> 00:03:18

keep saying the changes of core on the change must take place.

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

But how come the change taking place in our lives?

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

First

00:03:26--> 00:03:28

you have to understand

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

that there is something called signal to life.

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

And the sooner we know what's sad is

00:03:41--> 00:03:47

that you must do the ASVAB for a law to allow the chain to take

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

the long run he was sending them

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

when he was making hedger.

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

He had a dream.

00:04:01--> 00:04:12

And he was told by a loss through the dream that he will make a journey and he would make hit into the city of Medina.

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

He was certain

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

that he would make this journey

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

but at the same time What did he as a MOBA.

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

He asked him to buy and purchase two camels.

00:04:28--> 00:04:34

He asked him to find a guy that will guide them to the city of Medina.

00:04:36--> 00:04:40

He asked me to be alone and just sleep on his bed.

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

He asked us

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

to deliver the food to them in the mountain.

00:04:49--> 00:04:49

And he asked

00:04:52--> 00:04:56

to bring the sheep so he can wipe that imprint of us, man.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

All of this

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

Knowing that some of the long run he was selling them was make with make it to the city of Medina then why is he doing all this to teach us that we need to take the ASVAB anything if we want any change,

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

if you want a job, you got to apply for the job.

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

And therefore, you will earn income.

00:05:26--> 00:05:36

If you want to change our life that conditions of the Muslim then we have to learn how to change ourselves.

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

And the first step is what if you love

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

all of the steps of change

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

for us to be independent,

00:05:49--> 00:05:58

you know what independence means? It means you should not rely on anyone other than a loss of hand on what

00:05:59--> 00:06:03

it means that you should put your trust in the loss

00:06:05--> 00:06:20

not into national nations, not into national governments, not this state or that state, but on the loss of Hannah wattana because regardless of what you try to do, they will never

00:06:22--> 00:06:31

be out there for your own benefit. And they will never be happy with you until you became a phone

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

until you became a phone number become like then

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

Leon de la jolla

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

141. Can you

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

tell me Let the home

00:06:49--> 00:06:55

happy had the tibial plateau? along said they would not be pleased with you.

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

They would not be pleased with you or Muslims until you follow their footsteps.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

And listen to the word that I love you.

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

He used the word Tabak, the tibia Midleton, what does it mean?

00:07:15--> 00:07:23

It means that you will never be appear, you will never be compatible. You will never be equal in their sight.

00:07:24--> 00:07:35

You'll always have to follow because when use musante Salatu was Salam wanted to follow a hook? What did he say?

00:07:37--> 00:07:41

Go ahead and tell him until I literally mean

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

he said shall I be in Tibet?

00:07:46--> 00:07:52

And what is the Tibetan do? They take this shoe older person than the phone.

00:07:53--> 00:08:09

They cook for the person that they follow. They serve the person that they phone. And this is what about me. And the only time these people wouldn't be happy with us is the day that we become

00:08:10--> 00:08:18

servants of this. anyone other than Muslims always wanting to be a follower.

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

And so

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

he listened.

00:08:24--> 00:08:33

He said, let us Santa Monica kubla Khan. He said you will follow the footsteps of people before you

00:08:34--> 00:09:02

people before you and he says in the long run he was setting them step by step and spent by hand spread to the point that in the interim a loser who you will end up with them doesn't have a sense of mission you're all alone. And the who the Oneness are are you referring to the yoga and and Asana. He says some of the lower on he was in Who else?

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

Who else?

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

This is the reality of the moon

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

and look at the exam.

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

Look at the exam

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

of us following others

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

in Dubai, so Corolla

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

they

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

had a Christmas tree.

00:09:26--> 00:09:30

And you know how much that Christmas tree in the mall costs

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

only $10 million hamdulillah

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

only $10 million. It wasn't much

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

when the hours when our sisters in Palestine

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

did not have clean water to drink. Our sister in Ethiopian in a Protestant in Somalia. They have no clear water to drain. But at the same time these people are willing to spend 10

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

million dollars for Christmas tree. Imagine that a Christmas tree.

00:10:09--> 00:10:24

We have the neighboring city court decided and say we have to outdo them. And by next year, inshallah, they will only come up with the truth that will cause them $20 million.

00:10:26--> 00:10:35

Let's see how hard they try to follow the footsteps of the people before us. So if you want the chain,

00:10:36--> 00:10:48

first step of change is, be independent, be yourself, do not follow anyone else, anyone else footstep chose Alice

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

which is the second point,

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

which is

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

how self respect,

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

dignity,

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

dignity,

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

one of the Sahaba

00:11:06--> 00:11:07

he was,

00:11:08--> 00:11:12

he was captured by the enemies of Islam.

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

And this Abdullah, for that he was captured by the enemies of Islam.

00:11:21--> 00:11:40

can then the enemy of Islam said, we want to know about these people. Why are they so strong? So believe they are strongly in the religion? One can they be like us? So they said the ruler set, I want to see one of them.

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

So they brought up the law

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

of the life.

00:11:49--> 00:12:01

And it's not a great sort of robot. karate is a recent army to us. But it's not that can win the war, though. We respect them up.

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

So the ruler said to him,

00:12:06--> 00:12:07

how about

00:12:09--> 00:12:13

if you accept Christianity, I will set you free.

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

I would love to even know who that person

00:12:19--> 00:12:19

was.

00:12:21--> 00:12:25

Not for second Nana for a fraction of a second.

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

And then the king said, Oh, the ruler said.

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

However, if I give you half of my kingdom,

00:12:34--> 00:12:45

who wants to test this man? He wants to save this man be his worldly gain. Or he has is

00:12:47--> 00:12:48

Yes, it is. It is

00:12:50--> 00:12:55

called the moon cabbie. Now you will know well, the kingdom of your farm.

00:12:57--> 00:13:07

Then the Kingston who do send him back to the show, I know how to change and I know how to bend his willpower.

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

So they kept away

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

drink and food for three days.

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

And y

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

zero y.

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

And after the third day, he would not eat.

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

So they report back and they said

00:13:32--> 00:13:39

the companion of Mohammed refuse to eat the Z and drink from the wine.

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

So they call him back. And they say why don't you eat?

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

He will die.

00:13:48--> 00:13:52

He said what why my religion allows me to eat

00:13:53--> 00:14:04

or drink alcohol at the time of necessity. But because I know what you're trying to establish. I refuse to touch anything that is prohibited in this.

00:14:06--> 00:14:10

So they sent him back. So they sent him back.

00:14:11--> 00:14:16

And they brought this the most beautiful women that they compete with fine.

00:14:17--> 00:14:25

She came with that seduces outfits. And then she started dancing around him. And I'm

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

not paying attention to this lady.

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

And then he came and the lady said to the guards,

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

Julian endevour. Lonnie, I don't know what

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

to do.

00:14:42--> 00:14:49

She said Take me out of this place for like, I don't know whether this is a human being this is a man or rock.

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

Now imagine if What if

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

a man was away from his wife

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

in a strange country.

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

prisoner, and you refuse to touch the slave.

00:15:06--> 00:15:06

Because

00:15:08--> 00:15:12

for the heat of the law, and for the honor that he had one snap,

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

find him at the mat set

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

up totally did not work. Let's do some heat. Let's try them.

00:15:23--> 00:15:26

So they brought this boiling oil.

00:15:27--> 00:15:31

And they brought some of the competitive the Muslim prisoners.

00:15:32--> 00:15:37

And they took them and dip them in boiling oil.

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

And then I'm gonna live in Africa when he saw that condition.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

The king said,

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

except my offer or you will die.

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

And I would love to

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

sit never. So the king said go on down in the corner.

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

And his way when he was leaving the palace,

00:16:02--> 00:16:17

he cried. So the soldiers rushed back to the kingdom report and they said, that Muslim cried perhaps, no, we cracked nlv getting into him. So the king said, Bring him back. So they brought

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

me back.

00:16:20--> 00:16:26

He said no. Would you accept my offer? He said never. He's in the Why did you cry?

00:16:27--> 00:16:36

He said, because I realize I only have one soap. And I wish I had 1000 salsa, you can kill them all for the sake of

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

for the sake of the last time.

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

Now the king said

00:16:42--> 00:16:45

I will release you but under one condition.

00:16:47--> 00:16:51

He said What is? He said kiss my forehead.

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

He said your forehead is impure.

00:16:57--> 00:17:01

And I would never kissed a face or for urban legends.

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

The king said

00:17:04--> 00:17:07

I will let you go. And some of the most of the prisoners

00:17:10--> 00:17:16

said no, if I kiss your head, then you will let all the Muslim presidents go.

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

That came for a bottle and he agreed.

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

He agreed to it.

00:17:26--> 00:17:31

With the rest of the prisoners, they walked up in Medina

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

and I'm delighted.

00:17:35--> 00:17:40

He is so ashamed of what he did. Kiss the hem of the enemy.

00:17:42--> 00:17:54

And then we'll have time so what did you do that you felt some disgrace? He said I described Islam and I kissed the head over enemy

00:17:56--> 00:18:02

and he said for what price he said for the price for all this Muslims to be sent free.

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

I'm not gonna happen. I mean, I knew

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

he said no, it's for every musician, every Muslim, that they must kiss the head.

00:18:20--> 00:18:32

I love that what made him do this is because what made him do this is because of the nerves that he had for

00:18:33--> 00:18:47

his self respect that he had for snap. Now, the second thing as I said, that you need to do is to have that as a tip number four is a holding method

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

hamdu lillahi wa

00:18:58--> 00:19:01

salatu wa sallam, Mustafa

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

Muhammad.

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

Now

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

let us say, let us observe let us see how we can change our present our present time or condition.

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

You live in we all living in the West.

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

We live in, in a society where the people are so friendly most of the time.

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

We live in a society

00:19:36--> 00:19:45

though people would not care what you do as long as you're not disturbing them as long as you get into their space

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

yet

00:19:49--> 00:19:58

when not doing anything to change them. No. We are allowing them to change us

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

Why?

00:20:01--> 00:20:04

Because we send our children to their schools.

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

We watch their media,

00:20:10--> 00:20:21

we listen to their information and news we read for them. So there is no way that you can make when you will not be affected by the lifestyle that we live in.

00:20:22--> 00:20:29

Now, how can we turn that around and change it and make it better for ourselves?

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

First thing that we all should do

00:20:33--> 00:20:38

is just see our ability and capacity as an individual's

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

ask yourself today, what can you do for a snap?

00:20:47--> 00:20:49

If the only thing that you can do is

00:20:50--> 00:20:52

say hi to your neighbor?

00:20:54--> 00:20:57

And give them a gift, then do

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

if you can come out

00:21:02--> 00:21:23

and write about Islam, the correct Islam not a radical, it's radical Islam or, you know, what you call liberal Islam? None of that? What can they do john no matter what so far, middle court always know that this spot now this site, and no, no, this side, always in the middle.

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

Now you can write something about his son to present the view of his son do so.

00:21:32--> 00:21:37

If you can help and teach new Muslim how to pray do so.

00:21:38--> 00:21:47

If you cannot do any of that, but you can sponsor with your partner with your money, some Dao activity, then do it.

00:21:48--> 00:21:54

The point is your equity villa. Since you are here, you can do something for this team.

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

Yes, in a different levels, or we can all do ODU

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

there was this Jamaican run.

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

He passed away a lie.

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

And he was a middle in middle school.

00:22:14--> 00:22:18

And this young boy, you know with his Rasta, had all this

00:22:19--> 00:22:30

in school you will he was one of the worst students, because he would never attended the concert. As a matter of fact, he used to sell drugs in school.

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

And somehow,

00:22:33--> 00:22:37

somehow, he got to know about Islam.

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

So he became a Muslim.

00:22:42--> 00:22:59

Now, keep in mind, this young boy is known through the throughout school, that he's a drug dealer, he's up to no good. The parents who will say to their children, when they before they go to school is staying away from that Jamaican kid, you know, he was out there.

00:23:01--> 00:23:06

And what he became a Muslim and Allah guided him, he asked himself

00:23:07--> 00:23:11

the question, What can I do for this?

00:23:13--> 00:23:40

So what did he do? He said, I know all these guys, I used to supply them with drugs for these guns is to facilitate for them. So he came to them. And he said, Listen, you better read or buy some, you know, get a sense time. If you don't read about us, I'm gonna hurt you. This how he knows about Islam. Because when he was in that lifestyle, if you don't buy my stuff, is suddenly what happened to you. So now read about it.

00:23:42--> 00:24:00

So the principal got to know that this kid became a Muslim, and now is no longer doing the drugs, which is good news. But he is presenting propagating in Islam. So the principal said, you can do this in public school.

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

So we have said,

00:24:04--> 00:24:10

I used to sell drugs. That means I can sell anything that I want.

00:24:11--> 00:24:34

And I will send that down to Islam in my school. So you will come and say, Boy, come and the point would come expect that he will give him a drug or sell him a drug, and it will give him time to the body smell with this, and he will walk away so you just give him the drugs. And then kids in this school, became Muslim.

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

Well, I walked into a Masjid.

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

And I saw a big clock Hello. And I said, What are you doing? How long you been Muslim for two months? I said what are these guys? He said that site are the old Muslims, this side of the new Muslims. So what did he do? He's a gangster. He has

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

You know, ways of, you know, threaten these kids. He said, You are born to stem from a Muslim family, you got to put your act together while will hurt you. So those old Muslims who would not write would not do anything. They became religious for fear of the law. They fear him. So they said, we're going to pray otherwise, he's going to hurt us after school. So they can't and what is he teaching them? One line was teaching them how to resolve all along.

00:25:31--> 00:25:38

And they were born Muslim kids. Although Allah is other kids, he used to sell drugs to them

00:25:40--> 00:25:47

on hawala, and then these kids are the kids that he gave them Shahada, and now he has his own little crew.

00:25:48--> 00:26:26

And he made them all Daddy, as he used to make the rest of them gangsters. He made them days. I said, Why did you do this? He said, because when Abu Bakar accepted Islam, he said to the messenger Allah, what is my responsibility, and the Messenger of Allah said to Abu Bakar, my your responsibility is my responsibility. And my responsibility is yours, which means to convey the message to the listener. And then I went, and he bought six from them, as shown on mobile Sinead and Bill Jelena. six out of the 10.

00:26:27--> 00:26:44

Now with that mentality, if that little boy and gangster drug dealer, as they became a Muslim, was able to change the lives of those most old Muslim and give our two new Muslims, what can I do for this game?

00:26:45--> 00:27:15

We can do a lot. Whatever you do, you can do so alone would not change the condition of these people that we are part of them, unless we change our condition. And unless we become more concerned about the doubt, and cease and set ourselves to Panama, look how Indonesian Muslim communities and Malaysian How do they accept Islam not through jihad, to war, not through anything, just through simple calm down.

00:27:16--> 00:27:19

So you can do exactly the same thing, the initial encounter with

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

three things, one,

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

do not rely on anyone else other than a loss of control.

00:27:29--> 00:27:38

To heal the edges of Islam in your heart. Three, ask yourself, What can I do for Islam?

00:27:39--> 00:27:43

these these are three points that you need to walk away from this

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

and do not just listen to us for the sake of

00:27:49--> 00:27:55

listen to the hookah and see if we can do insha Allah in your way of life.

00:27:56--> 00:28:16

How many Muslim non Muslim Can you bring to the listener? How many unguided Muslim or misguided Muslims? Can you bring them back to this D. And whether you can do this or not? It all depends on your willpower. Alone medicine is somewhat muslimeen. Alone medicine is someone who's worked in the soil.
