Shadow, Mohammed Abu ora Solo
Solo Toby was Allahu alayhi wa ala early he was heavy woman, da da da what he did
with our brothers and sisters in Islam, Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Last week, I said that we will start with a series of talks.
On the deviations that we find
people are practicing, not only in this community, but in
in most of the communities
where there are Muslims in the world.
And I've told you that I've traveled length and breadth of the Muslim world. I've lived in a lot of the countries of the Muslim world.
And I see that if Allah
are not going to
make the people aware of the deviations taking place in society,
then we have a very bleak future as an oma.
I know and I believe
that both your parents and my parents
wanted only one thing from us.
And that is that we should die on the kalama of La ilaha illa Allah.
I'm sure that is the wish of all parents
that their children should live
according to the Quran and the Sunnah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And the older we get the more that becomes an intense desire of a parent.
That when he's given his children, the education they become doctors and lawyers, tradesmen
business people, at the end of all that, that is the parents desire and wish.
So it is important for parents and children to understand and to know what is this faith that we believe in?
And what is the kalama really mean to us?
And last week, I said we're going to talk about
the word check,
or ascribing partners to allow Spano tala.
And last week, I gave you one reason why this subject is the most important subject
that an alien can speak about.
And I quote a few of the verses of surah Touma EDA,
which is the fifth verse first surah in the Holy Quran, verse 72,
which allows Swan glasses
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, inna Houma usually Billa Sukkot haram Allahu alayhi
wa wa Who knows? Well, Marley volley Minami.
Allah says, Remember this verse, go home and check it surah ma into the fifth surah
It's important for you to go to your Quran and to make contact with your Quran and to read your Quran.
And there's no easier way than to be directed to the surah or the verse to read.
What is this verse mean? alswamitra says, verily, the person who was scribes a part to Allah,
Zakat har Rama la noir la Hill, Jana allies made genda haraam for him or for her.
Her Amin's Elan, Ubud
they there is no mercy from Allah subhanho
wa Taala, who not Allah says, He or her abode will be the jahannam woman is volley mean, I mean,
and those who oppress their own souls and misguide themselves,
they will have no help. Or helpers from Lowe's Palo
Alto Hamilton is profit day which is free
All of us to go to China
that's why the Quran speaks so much about gentlemen.
So much the Quran speaks of origin.
And believe you me my dear brothers and sisters, it's easy to go to gentlemen.
People have made it difficult
Gz men came to the levee system says Dr. rasulillah. If I only do the files while I intergender
prophesied What do you mean he says I'm not going to do any sooner. No sooner before no soon does. I'm just going to do two for Pfizer for for door for for assets in the form of repo for I shy 30 days for Ramadan or 29 days once for Hajj. zakaah. Once a year,
they leave anything out.
You ask you say that as well. I go to general property if you say what you're going to do, you will intergender
if you say what you're going to do, you will go to Paradise.
Today I'm going to give you the second most important reason
why it is important for parents to speak to the children about check.
The second reason first reason is Surah verse 72. Second reason is
the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
became a Navy at the age of 14
he was Mashallah
ready to receive the message from our last panel?
What message did he get from allows pantalla? What was the message?
Was the music Salah No. Was the matrix xhaka? No. Was the message No.
None of those messages was given to the Navy Salam in Makkah.
for 13 years from the age of 40 till the age of 53. There was no Salah prophet didn't make the Sahaba didn't make prophecies to make. They say prophecy mature occurs in the morning and two in the evening only for him there was no Ramadan.
There was no xhaka
there was no Hutch so what is the profit
and we know that salah and zakka and had
only became fall in Medina
and the Prophet only went to Medina 13 years after he was in Makkah. So what do we do in Mecca for 13 years, what is allowed to a haruta deem so important, more important than Salah more important than Hajj more important than zakka
What is more important than that?
He preached one message only
the message of the tauheed of allows
the message of the oneness of our last
10 years only he lived in Medina for 10 years only. So the period of tawheed was three years longer than the period of a bada why because if the foundation My dear brothers and sisters have to read is not to read all your data is both null and void.
To 13 years
the Nabi sallallahu wasallam tried to convince the Quraysh not to make sure
and what is shift? I repeat this all the time. What is she? Is she to worship an idol?
If you see a man
giving more importance to things other than a law.
If you see a man
saying things which people love to hear
and do not say the things which allows have a higher interest, pleased with.
If you see a man
whom the people love because he says all the things that the people want to hear.
If you see a man when a calamity strikes him
he doesn't appeal to a law but he turns to another human being.
Then the law tells us that man is committing shake.
In fact for an alum or Imam
if he believes that he's going to say what he wants the people to hear.
He should not do this job.
Not he'll go to China.
With the people,
if he fears that he's going to lose his pay at the end of the month, because he has to do this or that commanded by a committee or by a community, he should rather go and sweep the streets, it will be better for him. He will not carry the responsibility but a loss of himself and the community that he leads.
It's not an easy job.
This is the route of the MBA.
Yeah, there should be no consideration of a community or a salary.
Yeah, the only consideration is, is Allah pleased with me or not?
And I'm standing in front of you and that is my style in my view.
And if tomorrow you should stone me out of this mosque because I speak the truth. So be it.
So the levees allowed us to London
for 13 years, very important.
Very important you teach your children what to read is before so now.
So what is shade it gives you shade last week.
And when the ladies are salon came
and spoke against lack and monotonous czar, the idols It was not a personal fight.
He did not hate the idols, no, no.
He hated the fact
that the idols turn people's attention away from Allah.
What did he hate? What Allah teach him to do? Because the idols turn people's attention away from a loan subhanaw taala
it turns people attention to the idols.
It turns people peoples a barrier away from Robin, a bird,
from the Lord of the servants to the servants themselves.
And everything which turns our attention away from a law is a is an idol.
Members is what I'm saying.
Everything which turns your attention away from Allah is an idol.
Everything which turns your attention away from a law is an idol. With a dead person or a human being, or a statue, whatever it may be.
If you believe that you give more attention to the death thing than to allow Swaziland that is an idol
that people say today. First time I asked my peers, my chef, I can't do anything I have to consult.
That is my leader.
That's my mom.
And what should he say with the Moloch? The angel also in your father?
Who is your email? What will you say?
shall fight they will beat you.
They will beat you. I guarantee you you'll be in trouble.
Or Pearson's or molana santosha soon so
what would you say? One could
one could imagine. My mom and your mom is whoo
must be show because the mom of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was
and we follow in the footsteps of Muhammad all along. But why are we Why are we where we are today? Why are we here? Why are we where we are today? We follow any person who comes with a turban? Anybody who says well you know I am also of the descendant of stones on the descendant of stones.
And we just follow
We never say but it's an evisa seldom say anything about this should we do this should we follow him? And what is so significant about
about following a descendant of the prophets of Allah
are many descendants in the Middle East. Some of them are leaders I mean, the whole Ashima Kingdom of Jordan. King Hussein was a descendant of the prophet who really was so his his son was in power now married to a British woman, of course, funded by the
CIA the CIA gives Jordan $4 billion every year to keep quiet about Israel and to allow Israel to do what he does.
Those are called they call the same as the King of Morocco says he's also a descendant of the assassin.
So looking for rocks are easily saved and he dies in about Italy.
This is no reflection on the nervous system. This is no reflection on the descendants of the nervous system.
But there's no connection between a prophet and who ever came before him off team. Not because he was a prophet, his father was careful.
Let me know who was in who
Abu Jana Bula was the uncles of the Navy sauce alum. They were his uncle's Blood Brothers brothers, his father's brothers
galumphing now, all in German.
tells us in the Quran
that no man is better than another man, descendant of the prophet or not ellaby
Are you telling me that a man who dies in a bar in Italy
salvation on the FTM Oh because he will plead that he was a
descendant of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
blatantly unfair, undemocratic
only Allah knows the benefit we don't we look at the man and see what he does.
So everything we do which turns our attention away from a lawn is an idle
so in your life, you can decide what turns you away from a loss that you idle.
Allah subhanho wa Taala did not make wine haram because it's wine.
Allah made all intoxicants haram
including wine, not just wine which is haram or wine which is
why it is one of the intoxicants which makes which is haram. So there are these haram wine is haram. If you drink too much cough syrup and it makes you doubt that also becomes haram for you.
Everything is haram which intoxicating, including wine, but Allah makes an example of wine. Because it's an obvious example. We may think what is wine? Grape juice, you know, people drink it all over the world, you know, because industry in South Africa is wine you know, could have skipped No, no, just wine in intoxicants that will come now until they have kiama because more intoxicants will be made by men until the death of judgement.
So out basis My dear brothers the basis the essence the reality, the epitome
of our Deen is to hate. What is the hate?
What is to hate? Very importantly what is the
you still hate to believe in one Allah? No.
No to hate it's not to believe in
Why? Because the Quran said they believe in one Allah they said when Prophet salla asked him
surah two Zoomer fact this verse is in three genres of the Quran.
where Allah says to the ready Sam jasola Oh my messenger is alto man holla Casa Mata.
If you should go to the Quraysh the idol worshipers and ask them who created
the heavens and the earth?
They will say Allah created them.
If you should go to him,
man holla home and you asked him who created them? layer kulula
they will say Allah created us. If I should ask you almost remain who created the heavens and the earth? What will you say?
Allah? If I should ask you who created you? What would you say? Allah yet that doesn't make you a Muslim?
Because the correlation of maku[???]a
Why were they not Muslim? Why were they called machico? Because when the Prophet asked him but then why do you worship your idols? They said Leo curry buena, Eliza because these idols bring us closer to Allah.
So what is the idol worshiper
And emotionally, is a person who says
La ilaha illa Allah but
he's a person that says I believe that Allah created me but
he says, I believe Allah created me. But I need something else in my life, not enough.
The Quran said we believe in Allah, but
these Daughters of Allah that we worship, we don't actually worship them we know there's a God we know this Allah, we just use them, we go through them via them back in the old days where they still have the bus, you know,
Cape Town via Weinberg
and the buses and when some other way
I hope you get the picture Matthew 13 years and Avi preached this, do not go via another person to Allah
1500 years after he gave this message, we forgotten the message.
We want to be more than the prophets of Allah. We want to look better than the newbies on Salah. We want to know more than the Nagisa Salaam
we want to create our own Koran. We want to speak about Allah this prophet as if we've studied it for 100 years. It Whitman what what
so the law
isn't in the potent for them. When they see people move away one atom from the store heed to remind them
of why they Dean is so unique. That's why I'm a Muslim. I am a Muslim. And I've studied Christianity today.
I'm a Muslim because of this fact. Because in Islam, you can put your head on the ground and you in direct contact with your with your Lord.
In Islam, you can lift your hands up and you in direct contact with
my center mind alone, between me and my Creator. I don't have to go to a box or to a shape or to a memorial and say you know what I did last night Can you please ask Allah you know you're a good man. You know, you're a man of you know men of Dyneema. Mr. Mama chef, you know you make do I
want my heroes unova
along Lola, and Alison, who are for give you a sense, except
you're somebody who came from Yemen, or from Cyprus, he would no no.
if he should come back, he cannot forgive your sins only Allah can forgive.
If there was a person maybe that could have forgiven his own sins.
But because of he said he was banished from gendun Allah to forgive him later on.
our man and the level of the man of our community by this fact. The fact of tawheed.
During the years when Egypt was linked
to communist Russia at the time of NASA,
they build the Aswan Dam, as you know, and they armed the Egyptian army. That's why they lost all the wars against against Israel at the time.
The British Parliament in order to judge
the level of Eman of the Egyptian people, what do they do?
This is recorded.
They should send observers
to the Durga or the mother
or the climate as we call it.
of a man called Badawi
bear is in Tampa.
To do what?
To see how many people visit this great person. It was an annual excursion,
like we have an annual excursion to the Cromarty on
on the day when the kuffaar say they have gotten across we also celebrated way to go celebrated at 48. The comet
the British government has to send observers to
The Mazar of bother we bid a thumbtack to go and see how many Muslims are visiting there and what they do there.
And on average, at that time, 3 million Egyptians used to go every year at a particular time.
Just like Hajj. So today people go.
And they British judge and they said, Well, this is the level of faith of the Muslims, you know, they still find, we can handle this.
It's when they become to Hades, and they're not afraid to die, then we become afraid of them.
But if they like this, and they say, well, this data can help us we find, you know, we can replace them forever.
And people who go to this guy spoken to many people, some of them were students of mine. So you asked him,
why do you go? What is this
thing about? Dead people and graves? What What is this thing? You know? What is it about you people now that you now are first of all, I must say this, you know, I come from a family and a community and a history of Western cultural commentary of
I'm sure lots of us to go to the climax. My father used to be his father used to go
towards his big deal about me, being so passionate about getting new people not to go.
Let me sketch for you the history of the Malays
of Cape Town.
When our forefathers came here, for 100 years, Islam was banned. You know that? for 100 years, Muslims could not pray in public no meet in public, no do anything in public no message message, we're allowed normal addresses this was under the under the Dutch.
Imagine a whole century, the only thing they could do was they could meet on certain nights in the darkness.
And where did they meet, the only place they could meet was the only place that they knew what will go and meet them at that place. They may be in a graveyard or the grave whatever it may be.
And so over the years, these graves became important places of gathering, especially in those 100 years.
Then came apart isn't drinking okay? Our forefathers your grandfather, and by then they came. They they lived in the, in the in the heady days of British imperialism that imperialism.
And African parents have all the same all a party.
And you and I know when we were children, you couldn't go to the beach. To go to a beach. We drowned yesterday that sand Fontaine.
You couldn't go to today my children say we're going to Camus Bay and I think wow, you know,
God walk on the promenade and I couldn't
you couldn't go to a park or anything. No, no.
All all reserved for white people.
So our forefathers in Paris, my father used to take us away for an outing with you know, next in a mountain.
You go to Bozeman, because that's green. It's on the mountain there's water there. There is no intention of going to make the owl worshipping or you know putting in under the clutter or anything like that. You know that nonsense that people do.
It is pure fun goes to go to 40 for what it means to go after the parameters wasn't about that is about the fact that there was nowhere else to go people had numerous to go and then came to the nest of course.
But today things have changed. Today we have special I think more than 400 machines in the cape where we can meet regularly every day, five times a day we can meet in public and in private.
There is no fear anymore. Let's go and hide away.
So things have changed.
And in those days when I used to go there, there was no
Mazhar Society of decency, no not needed.
Those places was just there and it was just there and nobody painted it. There was no no lights was there you know when the sun goes down you go home. Today in fact, when the sun goes down, they go.
You see elicited Oh,
sorry, sorry, sorry. There's no light state. Today we have like a pizza salon.
guys to be able to put lights at the grave.
I told you many years ago when I was here before
I did some research and all these people and they were good people. And we pray Allah give them general like your parents and my parents can nothing to do with a person's buried in them under the ground wherever those people there, there might assume they are free from what we do on top of the ground,
allows for harm Subhana Allah says in Surah Furqan
which is the 25th Surah Surah Furqan 21st surah verse 17 to 18 Allah says,
well, you're not sure oh mama Boone, I mean donella fire cool.
And on the day of judgment when these only a good people, great people, pioneers of Islamia in the cape,
although they were brought here by force, not by choice.
They were good people to on guru one use of help of excellent people. But you must remember they weren't like the Sahaba ceram who went on the camera and went out to go and spread the Dinos they were captured in a war against the British in Indonesia put in change and brought here by force. Now why am I saying that I am saying that because it is a lot of growth in here
and it is a law that planted the seed of Islamia
and this is a laudable protect Islamic indicator
and it is a law that will remove it from you if we do not protect it
all this is the work of allows
one actual room allows farmers is the day
all these people arise from the graves
and no one asked him
to my bad yeah Allah Allah will say to these people, did you mislead my people?
What did you tell them they must come to your graves and do this and do that
was this the legacy that you left behind?
Like all these people who come here from all over the world this is the legacy what is the legacy if I die It was backdoor for me come to my grave visit me and so forth and so on. This is the legacy legacy of shift
and Cooper and Fisk and
only grave we we were told to visit was the grave of Mohamed Salah Allah.
So Allah says,
I body Did you did you tell the people? Did you tell the people did you mislead them
lose Sabine or did they mislead themselves?
What will these people say? subhanak Glory to you. Oh Allah. All these people that are beneath you. They will say Glory be to You Allah, Mark and Elena and Natasha Mendoza. Carmen Olia
The only I won't say the only I will say Oh Allah we have no power
to make people
believe that we are only we we you Alia
yeah friend. Oh Allah. We never told the people these things. Did they tell you? No. And they will tell the last panel Tada. Where can Matata
Hakuna Suzuka waka Nakamura allows says, But Allah you allow them to carry on
You allow the situation to flourish.
And their fathers allow the situation to flourish. Who are the fathers we were the founders.
They will say one guru will say Tong Yusuf will say this, it was the people that allowed this to flourish
until they forgot
until they forgot.
Like we have forgotten the Quran.
Look, I know Coleman Bora, and we became a lost community.
So people say
when you ask them,
why do you do this? They say well,
but these are Muslims and cosy. They know Allah.
They don't pray to the grave. will confess was to see how can you say how people make shift? How can you say they go to the grave and pray to the grave? How can you say these things?
What right you have to say these things.
My answer is,
but the courage gave the same answer to the prophets of Allah. The Quran is exactly the same he said but we know Allah. The Quran says we know Allah, we know this one Allah we know He created us. But you can see we go here just because you know,
your caribou nyla like they close to Allah and we love them, you know,
similarly, we love our gods WE LOVE LOVE THE monotonous
marriage of Thrones.
That's why some woman wrote in a magazine, a Muslim doctor, she wrote that in the time of Jamelia, women and more rights than now
they said, even the gods will even
even larger Manhattan was a woman and a woman could choose as many husbands as she wanted to
the whole world.
The second thing they will say,
first, they will say that they will say well, you know, people are Muslim How can you accuse them of
the Quran? jfsa Muhammad, how can you tell us and what is the evangelization? Okay, okay, let's, let's let you do your thing. Why must you talk about us, you know, talk about other things, you know, tell me that, why must you talk about these things? They can do the same. They said, Never leave our gods alone, and we will leave you alone.
And what is the Nafisa Salam say? Even if with the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand, I will not leave this the heat that I have to preach to the people. That was the answer Mohamed Salah. The second thing these people say is that some of these arguments
equal to all the verses that refers to the mushrikeen from the Quran
doesn't apply to Muslims. These are the ignoramuses amongst the Allah and ignoramuses amongst people.
shuriken mushrikeen but unknown, versus where they call it as a modifier.
Now you know you get different doctors,
you get GPS.
You get art specialists, kidney specialist, stomach specialist, all kinds of specialists. Can you get a physician was supposed to know a little bit about everything you were to him and he can test your heart and He can check this.
Now amongst all of our we've learned the Dean of a loss, there was a specialist. There are GPS amongst the
people who are maybe three or four year course, or six years.
They also have a little bit of every, then you get a specialist in Hades get a specialty.
And you get a man who knows who's read a lot and he knows a lot about Tafseer about Hadith about everything.
But then you get the man who just knows his field outside his field. He says I can't talk about it.
Now there's something called Tafseer of Quran.
And the Tafseer of the Quran has rules and regulations.
And one of the rules of the Quran, one of the rules of Tafseer of the Quran is very simple. If you look at the verse of the Quran,
then the origin of Tafseer tell us
don't look at
what they call the who Sue Sue sababa
what is also someone who's also Sotheby's don't look at why this verse was revealed.
When I came over Ella, what would you look at?
Over love? Or moon and love? Look at the generality of the words which Allah uses in the Quran.
To see what these verses all revealed about the machico No, no, no, no.
You have to look at what is the general import and meaning of that verse for everybody. Are you saying that when Allah addresses the prophet in the Quran, that's only for him?
When Allah says Allah, when NaVi has Bukola, open Oh, my NaVi allies enough to say, well, that's not for us. That's for the profits.
You have to look at the general application of the verse.
So the Java the Java ignoramuses will say,
those verses don't apply to muslimeen.
You look at the general import of the verse, the general importance of the verse and that is the mean so it allows for Allah says
that they said about their idols, that
Those items bring us close to Allah than anything else amongst the Muslims that take you away from Allah, Allah. And you say that those other things bring us close to our laws pantalla that is shift.
So people do many things.
And people say many things.
I spoke to an island
about three weeks ago, concerning the visit of the visitor, which we had.
And I spoke to him for about, I said, I think I told him, I spoke to him for about one and a half hours.
And at the end of the one and a half hours, he said to me,
You know, when I made this bed, before I met this man, my life was miserable. I had no direction in my life. This is an odd thing to a man who has spent many years studying. He said, you know, before I met this man, I was, I was, you know, my life was there was nothing in my life. My life was empty, until I met this man. And when I met this man, my life changed.
I started begging my Salah on time, five times a day in the masjid.
I started getting up for tahajjud
any that will have a list of things which happened to him after he met this man.
And I didn't say this limit. I want to say this to you.
What do you think?
If you had said that to the Navy salatu salam, what is the what would what would they do? What would it have been? A praise or an insult?
Imagine that the Navy says someone comes here to you. Now you say there is a solemn messenger of Allah you know, I studied your I studied the book which Allah sent to you. I studied your Hadith and you didn't My life was empty.
What do you say? Well, I was empty. Until I met this man.
from wherever he came from. He brought life into me he brought light into my life. You insulting Allah?
You saying Allah yo Khurana? no effect on me. You send this into your life and your sacrifice had no effect on me. But this man is this wonderful effect on me.
How many people haven't you heard say this?
It was a swab of the tea man on with it and Jesus. Okay, Marshall. sahlins mouffetard.
Where are we going? Where are we going with us? So tomorrow is tomorrow. What does that tell my children? Don't worry my child. You will meet somebody one day. And the more day you meet in your backyard You don't worry.
The more you beat him you start making Salah Don't worry
or mercy tell your child allows for handleless said
last revelation on hij on his last Hajj, first and last Hajj. Allah revealed the verse and yamaka mal to lacantina
what to alikum gamma t what are the two local Islamic today if I perfected your chosen Islam for you?
And what is the levy say La da da da da be no prophet
but we making profits.
We creating profits every time somebody comes here we make a profit out of him.
As if he comes with a new message we ever read this message before
we kiss their hands and their feet
as if Mohammed didn't exist, as he never sacrificed for us as if he never lived as if Allah never seen the Quran. This is your first encounter with Islam
Hola Hola. Hola.
And those are supposed to lead us
are not only silent, they seem to be party to this.
So now allows him to guide us, keep us in sha Allah.
Allah Allah Allah wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
