Islam isn’t merely compatible with any given era, but an active solution to the ills of every era as well. Its perfection is rooted in the fact that it was ordained by He who is perfect; Allah. This lecture will make it clear beyond any doubt that the description of “perfection” for Islam is most befitting.

I was right here when photo was asking if any one of you went to Canada this one person raised his hand
was one miskeen just one and they came back.
You know, probably he wouldn't do in the winter time.
is a little bit Kevin is beautiful. Just to let you know for the brothers who said he went or the sister who says she went and they came back. Canada is one of the most beautiful countries but don't come to us during the wintertime.
Summertime we can entertain you in Li subhanho wa Taala
I have exactly a very short time. And I want to finish on time. But as far as I said,
we're gonna be talking about the theme of the conference dance, confusion that is happening to us, our youth, our youth and so on.
I just want to say first of all, Allah subhanahu wa tada is the one who chose this religion for us.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala said on the day of arafah camisa al Bukhari
Allah Yama acumen to the convener Kumar ocimum. to rally at Wally to the cool Islam Medina. Allah says today I have perfected my religion and Yama I'm sorry, my favorite over you and have chosen Islam for you.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala said in another surah
in Diener in the law he al Islam Deen with Allah is an Islam no other religion, Al Islam.
And Allah said in another Surah
militare Avi Ibrahim, this is the religion of your father, Abraham alehissalaam. So it wasn't the religion of Moosa. Only, it wasn't the religion of Jesus or Isa only. It wasn't the religion of Mohammed only, but this is was the religion of Abraham, Abraham and those who came before him who was Muslim and I mean, he's the owner call you Muslims. The name of Islam was not fabricated by the Messenger of Allah. The name of Islam was given to us by Ibrahim alayhis salam, the father of the prophets and the messengers.
And Allah said woman Yep, Italian halal Islam, Idina Phelan, your other men if you choose any other way
than the way of an Islam, it will not be accepted from you. Islam here we're talking about submitting yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala submission and Islam means to submit yourself, your soul, your mind and everything that Allah has given you only to Allah nots in the societies, not to the you know, to the fashion industry, not to anyone else, but to Allah alone.
Under that banner, let us talk about few things, talking about the beauty of Islam and where Islam shy
Islam shine in an area where there's, you know, Justice among the societies,
there is no different in the sight of a lot between a white person
or brown purse between a brown person or black purse. Whether you from China, you fall, whether you from China, or Macau, or you know, London, it does not matter with Allah, because Allah subhanho wa Taala goes by the principle in a kurama commando movie, at the best of you are those who are most righteous, the most decent people in the sight of Allah and those who are God fearing, not because you're Arab, that you better than the rest. And sometimes it hurts me when I see non Muslim or when I meet non Muslim who assumes or she assumes Islam is about Arabs, and Islam. If you are Arab or Muslim, that's not true. I have a lot of, you know, non Muslim Arab friends.
Not all Arabs or Muslims, the Christian Arabs is your air of you know, they're atheists, Arabs.
But Muhammad was a former
was from Arabia.
But he's the one who said
in Arabic Why? So your load is one? Not five, not six, not two, he said in
your load is one. What in your head and your father is one.
law for the army army. There is no favor or superiority over our herbs of Arabs of other nations. There's none.
So this is a very important element that you need to understand.
Allah subhanho wa Taala does not care. What do you look like? does not care who you are. Allah does not care about your nationality.
But Allah cares about your faith,
your Eman how good you are, or how not good
when we should judging people we judge based on their color, or the color of their skin? Am I right?
come on be serious.
You know, we judge them based on the color of the skin.
And we can conclude that this person is acceptable or not acceptable, based on the color of the skin of that person.
But that's not what Islam is all about. Let me give you an example.
If you are from a certain country,
and you have a beautiful righteous daughter,
let us say your brown personal your black person, you know, and someone out of your community out of your color this kid you know, your color comes to propose to your daughter. What do you tell them?
What do we tell them?
Why are we playing fake here?
Let's be serious. What do we tell them? I tell you, you know, if a Pakistani or Indian brother comes to, you know, to the ditional my family's or Somali family, we say I'm sorry, we are married from you. You don't marry from us.
And we do the same thing. They will do the same thing to us. But in Islam, Allah said no. In a kurama come in the law he come. The best of you are those who have righteous righteousness. Not the color of the skin, not your nationalities, not the way you look because the Messenger of Allah is the one who said in Allahu Allah young rural, Allah does not look at your shapes your colors, but it looks into your hearts and your deeds.
So we learn in Islam, there is no discrimination.
There is no
difference between a male and female from an yam and meaner soil he hurt you or who were more men.
If you do a righteous deed while you are believer than Allah subhanho wa Taala he will reward you for what you did.
The second thing that I want to talk about, but before this, you know,
I want to mention a story of one of the famous Sahaba that famous he wasn't famous for jihad. He wasn't famous for Koran. He wasn't famous for any of that. But he was famous. How many of you heard the story of Judah? AB?
How many Let me see really how many of you heard the story of Julie be so famous? His story? Maybe 1020 of you?
Julie was one of the answers just to show you that Islam does not care about colors and size and shape and how you look
juolevi was a you know, he was not attractive to have he like Look, when you look at the people that were a you were married, or you want him to marry your daughter, you look at the color of the skins, you look the shape of their faces and the size of the bodies, you know, you look at you do these things. By July, we've had none of that.
He was not the most attractive Sahabi.
But at the same time, he was not rich. He was poor.
So not attractive, and not rich. No, that's two things that are no no wife will take that.
So the July we came here a solo law, one of the narration, he said to Rasulullah jasola law, if I believe in you, and I believe in the law. When I go to Jenna. He said yes. With my wife, they from the people of gender. He said yes. He said so Allah does not care about my shade my color. He said no, Allah does not care about that. He said, How come these people
will never marry me their daughters?
The Messenger of Allah said, I find your wife
I'll get your help you as we sell the young people say nowadays, you know, I hope you don't worry. I have you. I got him.
So he said okay, messenger of Allah, He said Atari for Benny funan. Do you know the family so well? So he said yes. Family from the answer from the people of Medina. He said go to them and tell them the Messenger of Allah is asking for your daughter, for you. showed you he was like now, you know, this is nobody can be like Rasulullah nobody will say no to the Messenger of Allah. today. I'm getting married. hamdulillah
so he was to the house. He knocks on the door.
And they open the door Carmen Carrera, Julie de una, me. So you lady, they say welcome, Julie. What can we do for you? He said the mission you're over law is proposing to your daughter before he's finished. They say Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar Rasul Allah is going to marry what is a no, no, no, it's for me. They say La hawla wala quwata illa villa.
said yes, you Yes. And then then he said, his wife, you know, she said What's wrong? He she said, Rasul Allah, He proposed to our daughter and she said, Oh Masha, Allah. He said no, for him for July when she said La Ilaha Illa. Allah, Quran he, you know, Quran that before Abu Bakar for for someone like Mohammed or YG lady.
So, the husband said, I can't give you an answer. Let me talk to my wife.
While they were talking about this, that daughter, she heard about what they talking about. She said, What are you doing? They said in narela Rasul Allah, He wants you to marry this man. There's no we can accept this. She says so Pamela,
are you not a mini mini? Are you not true believers? They say yes. How can you reject the suggestion of Rasulullah sallallahu? How could you I'm going to marry this man. I want to marry him.
So this man married this young lady and hamdulillah
he was the happiest and the Messenger of Allah made the ayah Allah make them the happiest. Give them the world from sources that they never imagined. So they got married when he left in him. Surely after that visa, he Muslim, they went out for jihad. And after the war was ended, the war was in over messenger over last set to the Sahaba. You know, are we missing anybody
So let's say you're a solo la, we missing soul, one soul, and we missing so and so on. They start counting people, and they say anyone else? No, he said, but I'm missing July the July beat came with us, where is he?
So they went, and they looked, and they found him dead. Or the last one. They killed him. But he killed seven of the enemies. And they killed him. So the messenger over law, he we over his body, and he said,
he, they killed him after he killed seven.
He's off me and I am of him.
And then he buried him some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and he preyed on him. What do we learn from this? We will learn from this, that Islam does not care about your color, your size, your shape, whether you white, black, you know, you know, you know, some, some I don't want to mention, you know, but some people, the only one America from certain colors, even though they know from that color, why? Because in their mind, they're still slaves. They still colonized. They see a suppressed, and the thing, you know, I think, if you move from that raise, then your profile will go up,
will go up, and I'll tell you a story.
You know, I went to one of the Muslim countries. I stayed there for 10 months. And in that Muslim country, you know, I used to go to the masjid and nobody would give me a certain first day, and everybody would look at me. And then after Salatin say I want to sit in the masjid and stay in the masjid.
But the brother who lacking the mercy will say,
brother, we have to close the mustard. This is a Muslim country, you know? So I used to leave one day. I brought my son with me.
Now my son,
he's half white.
The admin said, Who soon is this?
I said last time I checked, he was mine.
And he said, Really? So yes. What do I say? Should I bring the Mazel Tov upon my anon? Yes, wala is my son,
man, everything change and he called the Imam Yaba, funan come here.
This is his son.
They forgot about me they forgot about this African brother.
And they were like Masha Allah cave hanoch how are you little boy? And I think that he What is he saying?
From that day, the next day, I was giving the key of the message.
So you want to stay stay here?
You want to lead the salon lead the salon. So what do you do? I'm an Imam. Okay, tomorrow, I'm not gonna be here lead the setup before nobody gave me Salah. Because in their mind, they still slaves.
That's wrong. The second thing that I want to talk about, about a beauty of Islam
status of women in Islam.
You know, Allah said in the Koran,
you know, when he said that Kuru
is a male. And unlike females, some of them are they said, In a lot of cases, girls are preferred over boys, do you agree with me?
Now, let us have you had me do that right here now.
Now let me tell you, I believe
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this.
He said, If you have three daughters,
they will be a protection from you. If you raise them, well, you teach them well, you treat them well with three condition.
And the fourth condition and you educate them well, he said if you do this for them, three of them, then they're gonna be your protection form. Johanna Am I right?
Was that given for the boys?
Nope. I don't know what kind of book do you read? If you say yes. According to what I know. No, I was die. Our reward was only for the girls and one of the Sahaba Yasuda law. I only have two he say two is enough. Another one era sola. I only have one. He say one is enough.
Now for the boys. I have Mashallah tabarrok Allah. I have four daughters.
Last time I count there were four daughters and three sons. I don't know what my wife did since I came here.
look, if you have daughters, you know, when you when you have a daughter, and there's this unkindness, you know, you call your daughter, you know, as smart as she was said, Yes, Daddy,
you feel like
you called your son for war.
And you're like, Man, I wish I can take him back to the hospital.
But he knows the address of where I live.
You just walk back
like, you wanna you just ask him have his soul, you know, the war for the girls, you know, and they run to you, you open the door, you come for a walk your tie your little girls Mashallah Daddy, you know, the boys is like on the former Sharla
stiff, that's where the messenger overload.
You know, when he used to see his daughter Fatima, used to get up and walk to her and would kiss her forehead, and he will grab her by her hand, and they will bring her to the best place where he was sitting, and he was so sweet sit right here that has his daughter
as his daughter, so in Islam, Allah has, you know, give women status that he known other nation, no other religion can claim that
Allah said in the Quran when He then moved to Sui that the
law defended women in the or are we are we have a chapter called sort of tennis. Am I right? Do we have a chapter consolata region?
What are you reading? Man?
There's no chapter quarterly jail call Nisa the chapter women? No chapter call men?
And that's why the router must set any nation who's the female sex or porn is righteous? That's a successful niche.
If the female side of any society is not righteous, that nation has no future.
no future. And sometimes when I read, some people saying is some of us women, you know, women have no writings? I say I don't know what kind of Islam you've been reading. I really don't know. Because Islam that I know, give women more than you can imagine more right than you can imagine.
Sadly, some of the sisters, they fell into the nonsense. And I asked those sisters, you know, we have
you know, 70% of those who accept Islam are female. Do you know that
70% of the reverts are females.
What kind of, you know, Nino, you know, crazy female will say, oh, Islam, abused women. I think that's a perfect religion for me.
I want to be abused. You know, where should I go? Christianity? No, oh, no, no, Islam won't be abused.
Now they read the intelligent people they read. And they say, Well, this is my right in Islam. This is my other faith and really, no, I want to be with this religion.
The third thing, I only have six minutes that I want to talk about Islam, highlighted and talked about
benefiting others. See Islam. You know, it's not restricted to you benefiting Muslim or favoring Muslim over other people. That's not Islam. As a matter of fact, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he when he was asked, you know, people that Allah loves mo loves the most. He said unfound only NAS Allah loves those who will benefit others.
He didn't say those who were benefit Muslims. But Allah the Messenger of Allah said, Allah loves those who were benefit others, whether they Christians, whether they do whether the atheists, whether they, you know, yeah, swung they're human beings. You should respect them and treat them well.
That is Islam. You know, cultures they teach you. They teach you to, you know, to discriminate they teach you to, you know, prefer your own kind of others is slang of saying no
respect everybody. love everybody, wish hate for them.
Wish goodness for them. You know, people came to the Messenger of Allah and say and Buhari and the Hadees be collecting Buhari and they say Yara sobre la this fever the you know the funny Kate they deal with interest they drink alcohol they do this make make you pray against them. So the Messenger of Allah He raised his hand and everybody thought that he will curse them instead of making praying against them. He said you're a law guide them
yeah, Allah guide them, not destroy them. You know, not drawing them No, yeah Allah guide them. That is your messenger.
That is your profit. Women are cerca de la maternidad Amina Allah said we only send him hammered to be a mercy for all men. Not to discriminate not to disturb disrespect.
The last point that I want to mention about Islam is Islam.
Preserve protect environment.
Okay, and I need you to differentiate between Muslim and Islam don't say Oh, I know Muslim who really do not care about his you know backyard. He doesn't care about No, no, we're not talking about Muslims. We're talking about the true Islam.
Islam would not allow you to fish for sports.
Because fish they have rights fish have right You can't just fish for the sake of it, you know, you you you you torture this fish and then you take a picture with it and you send it back. That's not Islam. You committing a sin if you do that. Islam will not allow you just to hunt for the sake of hunting, killing birds shooting birds down for the sake of hunting, you're not allowed to do that in Islam. So haraam
slam is not allowing you to cut trees
is haram unless you really need and I say need not desire not wants to touch the environment.
Islam is not even allow you to pollute the water, you know, it's haram if you come to a river and you urinate in the river, you are sinner, you know that
chinar Allah, this is our is snam
and before all this so called New organizations, you know, animals, right, you know, sometimes they see little video, you know, they talking about animals in certain countries, you know, how dogs being treated, you know, let us preserve this, let us donated for this and, you know, Islam already perserve that.
Remember the Hadees in the Buhari a lady who captured a cat and she put her in a cage and will not allow the cat to go out and eat and find food for itself until the cat died. The Messenger of Allah said that lady is in Hellfire because of that cat, cat.
remember when when he went to some the long run he was sent him to a farm, and then a camel rat to him. And then the camel lower its head and the messenger overly sad, you know, petting the camel, and then the tears came from the eyes of the camel. And the messenger over law said Who is the owner of the scam. And one young man he said jasola is mine. He said the camel just told me that you misusing and abusing.
You don't feed it and you don't give enough rest to it. Here a lot concerning this animal. I can tell you list of 100 is how the Messenger of Allah used to preserve the environment. You know, remember the Sahaba when they took you know babies from a bird and the birds are flying over the Messenger of Allah parliament of jaha. who's scared this bird concerns babies. That's environment. Omar Abdulaziz
he had he had a whole department that is funded by you know, Bates and man, the Islamic bank. They had a whole department for blind cats.
What we call an animal shelter. We think the Western society introduce all this for us and we should follow their footsteps. No, I don't want to be an Abdelaziz
was the grandson of Abba hora for the loan for those of you who don't know,
Marvin Abdulaziz from the mother sir Mervyn Abdulaziz when he became the halifa. He has
He had a special department for the blind cat. He had a special department for retired animals. What do we do if the animal retired here, my time is up? What do they do? They put it down.
If the animal is too old to serve in, if the dog is too old to walk in, I'm going to
bring that animal to me. And they had special department that will take care of the animals until the animal naturally dies.
Now, who can say Islam is not a perfect religion?
Who can say that?
Unfortunately, our children will use when they go to universities and these guys, they mislead them by saying, Oh Islam abuses women, Islam you know you guys don't allow girls to go schools. Islam you know is nothing but we're in our youth they get confused.
And I will say to them, come back and study Islam don't study Muslims, because we hardly know our religion. We hardly know our Deen just because you come for prayer. Every Juma doesn't make you miss a good Muslim you just a Muslim? And most of you are most of us we come to a message and he was reading in Arabic And we don't even understand what the hell he was reading it because I don't you don't speak I don't speak Arabic.
And we think because we want to salata Juma, we should be okay. Now let us come back to the rules and the basics of Islam and study Islam just because you have a job over your head doesn't mean you know Islam.
You know, you hardly we hardly know our history.
hardly know our history. So I would ask you shala especially young people, I would ask you to go back study the serial number bin Abdulaziz city, how we preserve environment, study how we brought civilization to the Western society. Study when we made you know, Spain paradise. Study your own history, and then you will know that this religion is the greatest religion that a lot ever, ever allowed mankind to embrace.
