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

Every three years every two, three years, that average youth average Muslim youth are leaving Islam.

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

What percentage do you think that would be? is a 2% percent of our youth?

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

Is it three? Give me a number I want to share with you give me a number.

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

10 5% No, I want more more than 515 more

00:00:43--> 00:00:46

Now let me let me go down to our level.

00:00:47--> 00:00:55

Imagine, imagine you have 100,000 Muslims living in this city 100,000 of them.

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

And 24% of them

00:01:01--> 00:01:03

are killed every year.

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

Would you do something about it?

00:01:08--> 00:01:21

Would you be concerned and say well 24% of our youth being killed this year? 2019 we got to do something about this as a community

00:01:23--> 00:01:30

24% which means 24,000

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

Muslims Am I right?

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

But we don't do anything about it.

00:01:37--> 00:02:02

However, in London if someone is stabbed is a Muslim is stabbed or somebody running up behind some with the knife. The media is all over Muslim community they are on fire and everybody's like somebody a Muslim is being killed. Guess what? He just lost 24,000 of your youth and nobody even prayed on them.

He tried to

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

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

he tried his best

00:04:12--> 00:04:18

I think beside the only thing the only people can perfect my last name

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

the correct pronunciation

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

someone is like hallelujah Juju. Oh my god, every word about Allah.

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

Everywhere.

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

But I don't see too many of them here. I don't see hands. Well, Somalis.

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

See three Masaki and only three Masaki.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

by Mr. Miller, I want to talk about an issue that really really, you know, dealing with our youth.

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

And it's not about marriage. Because all the brothers, they think, yeah, he's gonna be talking about marriage again.

00:05:10--> 00:05:11

And it's not about gins

00:05:12--> 00:05:16

because those two topics, they attract a lot of people marriage or gin.

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

But something that is really threatening the court of our society.

00:05:25--> 00:05:35

Something that is so severe, so serious, that almost every single day, I deal with it every single day.

00:05:37--> 00:05:41

And there is Muslim youth leaving Islam

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

as a serious issue, am I right?

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

Today,

00:05:50--> 00:06:01

I gave Shahada to you know, everybody's like, you know, a new Muslim Allahu Akbar, he accepted Islam, I guess. Lately, I've been giving Shahada to all Muslims.

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

Can you imagine

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

when people left Islam?

00:06:08--> 00:06:17

And um, you know, we've tried to bring them back. We're giving Shahada to all Muslims, somebody who left Islam

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

and is coming back.

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

But they are few.

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

Those who come in back are few.

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

You know, according to the studies has been done.

00:06:30--> 00:06:39

Every three years, every two, three years, that average youth average Muslim youth are leaving Islam.

00:06:41--> 00:06:46

What percentage do you think that would be? is a 2% percent of our youth?

00:06:48--> 00:06:52

Is it three? Give me a number I want to share with you give me a number

00:06:54--> 00:07:00

10 5%? No, I want more more than 515 more

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

20 more

00:07:04--> 00:07:08

24% of Muslim youth are leaving Islam.

00:07:10--> 00:07:13

Now let me let me go down to our level.

00:07:14--> 00:07:22

Imagine, imagine you have 100,000 Muslims living in this city, 100,000 of them.

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

And 24% of them

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

are killed every year.

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

Would you do something about it?

00:07:35--> 00:07:48

Would you be concerned and say well, 24% of our youth being killed this year? 2019. We got to do something about this as a community

00:07:50--> 00:07:57

24% which means 24,000.

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

Muslims, am I right?

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

But we don't do anything about it.

00:08:04--> 00:08:29

However, in London, if someone is stabbed is a Muslim is stabbed or somebody running up behind some with the knife. The media is all over Muslim community, they are on fire. And everybody's like somebody's monsters being killed. Guess what? You just lost 24,000 of your youth. And nobody even pray janazah on them.

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

So I want to talk about something that's very important here.

00:08:36--> 00:08:41

See, for many years that I was being coming to this country,

00:08:42--> 00:08:57

I've been noticing that our youth and by the way, I gotta clarify this. The youth are leaving Islam, not the drop out. The youth are leaving Islam and the university students.

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

I mean, well to do students, you know, successful students.

00:09:05--> 00:09:11

So what should we do since I've been noticing this increase every year? Now listen to me.

00:09:14--> 00:09:23

Well, botlane fallstudien truth, always, you know, they will be head to head fighting one another until the sun until the Yama

00:09:27--> 00:09:44

and the schilke the enemies of Allah and I'm not talking about certain raise certain country, you know, those who do not want faith. They employ every resource that they have to make sure that everyone is a disbeliever.

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

Everyone.

00:09:48--> 00:09:48

Now,

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The biggest challenge that he faced was the biggest challenge was, you know, machete king.

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

Did he not believe in the messenger overlying the message of the messenger overlock

00:10:05--> 00:10:05

they didn't.

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

They were against it.

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

Remember? Alas, meanwhile, in

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

a last minute, it was one of the chiefs of the Irish.

00:10:19--> 00:10:32

And he rejected Islam and the idea of life in a year after and the idea of God that would judge me for what I did on what I'm doing, you know, he was he was rejecting it.

00:10:35--> 00:10:42

So he came to the messenger overloaded with old bones, all you know, decade bones

00:10:43--> 00:11:13

and he's sitting in front of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam fukaya. Mohammed, act as an Arab burqa, you had a brother and a matter is a young Mohammed Are you claiming that your Lord will bring life to this after it after the turn into this for colony via Samba lohani? You are sending them now? Will you the phaedo cannot Yes. And you're going to be from the people of now. of January.

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala said, what better way than a metal onesie

00:11:20--> 00:11:21

on him and you?

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

Were here? I mean, can you hear

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

me the respond came from Allah.

00:11:33--> 00:11:49

This man was talking to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as soon as I spoke, the revelation revelation is spoke but our children when they dealing with this situation, they don't have what it takes to stand on the ground.

00:11:51--> 00:12:05

I want to go over because my time is very limited only have a short time. I want to go a few steps to see how we are our youth can challenge this, you know, fits into this problem.

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

First thing that we need to do as Muslims

00:12:10--> 00:12:14

we must learn we must increase our Eman.

00:12:17--> 00:12:31

Young people I want you to listen to this. You come into Salatin Juma Are you coming to the Minister for a show you're coming for Muslim not understanding what the Imam is reciting that will not increase your EMA.

00:12:32--> 00:13:00

The reason that we are Eman is increased because when Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking to us through the Quran. We understand what Allah is telling us on my attesa aniba a loving lady whom fee we understand because we study Arabic. So when we praying behind the Imam and the Imam is reciting, I can reflect to those who speak ever they can reflect. And then the man can increase.

00:13:02--> 00:13:14

But if you know nothing about your religion, you hardly understand the meaning of the Quran, the meaning of the Fatiha, you physically there, but your heart is not there.

00:13:15--> 00:13:54

You're going to be studying for 10 minutes, making motions going up and down. But you cannot really, really, really benefit from the prayer unless you understand the meaning of the prayers. Not only that the medicine Jehovah law said, as soon as you as soon as the Adhan cough, there's a certain shade on that cannot hear the other end, and he flies away. He runs away from the other end. And then when the karma comes, he comes back between the other in the karma when the karma comes, he also runs away. And then as soon as you see a law cover, he says I'm right here.

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

His name is Honza

00:13:58--> 00:14:03

the Chapin says a law and you say Allahu Akbar and the shaitaan says, I'm right here.

00:14:05--> 00:14:25

And then his job is to distract you from your Salah. Now if you speak if you understand what the Imam is saying, if you understand what some hanabi Alavi means, what Subhan Allah Allah means then you can concentrate otherwise shaytaan this shaytan can take you out of your Salah with no efforts

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

so the first thing that if you want to challenge it, this difficulties that we find in fighting is you got to increase your email, how should I increase my email? Not only knowing when the email is saying but increased you know if and, and you also every one of us may email what increases my email. It is not necessarily increases your Eman? Maybe my Eman can be increased just you know fasting. Maybe your email when you fast does not increase but it when you pray it increases and

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

You when you read the karate increases, and you when you give sadaqa increases, so each one of us must find what increases his or her email.

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

And when your email is strong in Washington comes to you.

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

You won't be able to shake.

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

The Sahaba is a Muslim.

00:15:23--> 00:15:29

In the book of Muslim, the Sahaba of Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, they said Yara Salalah

00:15:30--> 00:15:47

sometimes what comes to our minds are things that we cannot even say it about Allah we can say it. We So shame that these thoughts are coming to our hearts and our minds. What should we do? What is the Messenger of Allah to those Sahaba?

00:15:49--> 00:16:02

Did you really find that in your heart that when you have these things and these doubts in your heart and in your mind you can you cannot even express it? They said yes, Allah Danica sorry, her email, he said that is a true email.

00:16:03--> 00:16:11

What does it mean? It means as min shaitaan will come to you and will make you doubt your own religion.

00:16:13--> 00:16:43

shaitaan will come to you and He will tell you this beautiful butterflies, Mbit butterfly, Masha, Allah, Masha, Allah is so beautiful, colorful, who created and you immediately will say in your mind, Allah, and so beautiful. It's Tallis landing on on flowers, who create the flowers. And in your mind, say Allah and see who created this beautiful planet and in your mind, and he's saying Allah who created the universe, Allah and then at the end, it was your turn will tell you and who created a law?

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

If you find that in your heart,

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

the messenger overlaps and you are true men.

00:16:54--> 00:17:17

Your true movement because Satan is trying to shake your core of your Eman. So what should we do if that comes to us? Pardon me you sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam you say amen to biller, I believe in the law. Keep repeating. I believe in the law, I believe in the law or the law, I believe in the law and the shaitaan will leave you alone.

00:17:18--> 00:17:22

He will leave you alone. So we have to have the second

00:17:24--> 00:17:31

we got to study the aqidah the D the curve the core of your Eman what is aptina what is creed?

00:17:32--> 00:18:00

It means it will teach you who is Allah? What is Allah? What are the angels? What are the Quran? Every child knows the five pillars of Islam. Every child knows the six pillars of Eman but we really don't know them well enough. So as a movement, you need to learn each one of them by and our increase your Eman, be evening subhanho wa Taala

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

The third thing

00:18:07--> 00:18:13

you have to come to Islam fully you cannot be a part time Muslim.

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

You can you can afford to be a part time Muslim.

00:18:20--> 00:18:44

You can't be a good Muslim during the lecture days because you know your favorite shift is here. You just you know and then after you go back home, you go back to your normal life sisters you can't just come to the masjid with a job but when you go to school when you go back to your you know work you can't you're not allowed to take to have that personality.

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

You can

00:18:48--> 00:18:54

you got to come a law said oh who you believe come to Islam complete.

00:18:58--> 00:19:03

You can't say I'm here Muslim, but I'm here I'm British.

00:19:04--> 00:19:22

I'm here can Muslim but I'm here Canadian. No, you're Muslim here. And you are Muslim here and you Muslim there and you Muslim there you can't be a Muslim 24 seven and your religion will not contradict the law of the land that you own. It won't

00:19:23--> 00:19:27

we got to stop being a part time Muslims.

00:19:28--> 00:19:57

We have to come to the Islam completely we have to accept if a law says such thing such as such which you say it's not we walk on and we hear and we obey. It's not like I want to you know practice Islam based on what I think how I feel does not work with the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhana wa tada into Islam completely not partial

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

number of

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

For as Muslims, we got to learn the source of Islam.

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

What are the sources of Islam? Where's the first one?

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

What is it?

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

Did you see a Buddhist constitution?

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

What is the first one?

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

Or on?

00:20:21--> 00:20:30

That's the first one. So what is the answer? Such and such we follow us. That's the first thing. What is the second thing?

00:20:32--> 00:20:48

soon because the Navy is a lot more it was seldom said and a coup de su soon as Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. He said I left you with the plain path, the sooner Kitab loi was soon

00:20:50--> 00:21:07

to be crunchy and intermixture intersecting Bhima Phelan, Tavi Luba, the ABA kikkawa law, he was so nutty. He said two things that I left you with two things. If you hold on to them you will never go straight. What are they the book of Allah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

What about my shift back home?

00:21:12--> 00:21:24

You know, what about what he said is according to the Quran and Sunnah semi nawapa is according to the culture we say Jazakallah head for your effort, Allah will reward you, but I cannot accept

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

for Wisner

00:21:28--> 00:21:43

to live in a mercy road used to say termasuk Saku be Sonata man mobile for England Hi. He say hold on to the son of those who passed away because the living one is not saved from the fitna.

00:21:44--> 00:21:49

So hold on to the son of the Sahaba of Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

So we have completely the

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

number five

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

avoid positions

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

of fitna and doubts. Let me tell you this, let me let me elaborate, elaborate on this.

00:22:11--> 00:22:17

If there's an area that you confuse about it, get out of it.

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

And don't try to figure out yourself. I'll tell you a story here.

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

There is this little girl What is she's not literally she went to university.

00:22:29--> 00:22:35

This girl Tabata cola from Canada, from my city. She never went to public school

00:22:36--> 00:22:43

from first day until she went to university she was going to Islam schools.

00:22:45--> 00:22:54

And then she saw a course that has been presented be giving or being you know, it was available at the university.

00:22:55--> 00:23:18

And the course said Islam one on one, what comes to your mind when he Islam one on one, simple stuff, you know, probably teaching, you know, five pillars of Islam in her mind. She said, I thought what I know five pillars of Islam, probably gonna teach you and if I can read Arabic, so she thought she can really get good marks in this course.

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

She signed up for the class. Her teacher

00:23:26--> 00:23:29

was so called ex Muslim.

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

Ex Muslim.

00:23:34--> 00:23:40

She has Tafseer of the Koran hair on tafsir of the Quran.

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

Bigger than Tafseer from the Casio.

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

She has an own subset of the Quran.

00:23:48--> 00:23:52

She is giving the students in the class this is your references

00:23:53--> 00:23:58

online, the library of the university Come on take a copy of a read.

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

And she's teaching everything that is not Islamic and the little girl. She says but that's not Islam. But that's not Islam. And the teacher was the printer the professor would say no, no, no, no yo is now is that Islam is thought he

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

is a service Islam. What I'm teaching is the truth.

00:24:26--> 00:24:32

Everything that she taught in the class was women have no rights.

00:24:33--> 00:24:43

Islam does not like non Muslims. Islam is a religion of you know, terrorism. Everything I see so called Muslim.

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

hijab is now part of Islam.

00:24:47--> 00:24:58

cm is now part of Islam. Women can lead the salon in the men gathering the men and women together. Women can so she confused this little girl

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

And you know what? these professors who's doing this, they are trained to confuse this young people. They are trained to confuse these children, these children and our children don't have the background, they don't have the information to maneuver around this confusion.

00:25:25--> 00:25:41

They don't have that they not trained to debate with such a high caliber professors that their job is to confuse these young people. And that's why we have over 24% of our Muslim youth leaving Islam
