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

hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Ahmed who want to start in earnest a few who will be here on a doclet when I was with him in Cerulean fusina Dr. Molina de la ilaha illa Allah, Allah.

00:00:17--> 00:00:37

Allah Allah Allah Allahu la sharika Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu alayhi wa ala he was heavy woman da da de la mattina my bad blood brothers and sisters Islam Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Don't worry, I sound much worse than what I feel I feel quite good. I my son, I don't sound so good. But I feel all right.

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

Last week, we digressed somewhat.

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

I think, now that I get old, I digress more and more. But hopefully my digressions are beneficial or not beneficial, you should kindly point them out to me if it's not beneficial.

00:01:02--> 00:01:08

So today, inshallah we're going to give last week's lecture, last week's last week's lecture was

00:01:09--> 00:01:13

going to be the continuation of the history of the Navy. So a lot.

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

And this is lecture two, which deals with the first four years

00:01:18--> 00:01:28

of the prophethood messenger ship of Mohammed Salallahu alaihe salam. And we last time we we ended and we said,

00:01:29--> 00:01:49

we spoke about his meeting with waka Nova, very famous meeting, and then afterwards jabril appear to him in the heavens and said, and Mohammed uno energy v Leo Mohamed, Salah, salam, mg green, meaning that allows wahana tala as appointed you to be the newly commissioned

00:01:50--> 00:02:34

Prophet, sent especially to the Arabs, and of course, generally to the whole of mankind. And we say that this prophet harbored the greatest intention, the greatest ambition, and that was to bring the whole of humanity within the circle within the floodlight circle of Islam and within the parameters of the tsunami, Mohammed Salatu, salam, we said that the only things he had was his evangelists, Allah was his faith in the message, which allows for handleless sentiment at that stage only for for sutras revealed, namely, Allah, Allah, Allah zamil and Buddhist fear and, in fact, that is where we digress a little bit last week or quite a lot.

00:02:36--> 00:02:46

And of course, the Buddha period was when Allah subhanaw taala commanded the Nebuchadnezzar slam, now is the time to come

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

to rise

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

to

00:02:52--> 00:03:03

take off his cloak, right we've said literally, and to proclaim the message. So first, the Navy's a solemn was an IB.

00:03:04--> 00:03:39

He was an IB first what is an IB and IB is one whom Allah subhanaw taala chooses to give his message to Islam. Then with to give his message to mankind. Now Nagisa Salaam was given the de Sala messenger ship, now I became a soul when the when the command came under rise and proclaim this was the call. Oh this was the mantle of reseller of missing the ship which allows for unlimited given to Mohammed Salah lo rd

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

what methodology Did you employ? How did you go about

00:03:46--> 00:04:09

proclaiming this message of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah saw Salah again, I stress the point that up to this point, maybe Elisa Lam came with no miracles he performed Not a single miracle to proclaim His prophet to convince people of his prophecies. No, there were no miracles. The only medical he had was the miracle of the Quran which was revealed to him.

00:04:12--> 00:04:25

First he started in the first three years by by a method of selection he selected approximately within a period of three years 200 men. Okay, I don't want to use the word converted

00:04:26--> 00:04:42

200 men and women and even children were accepted. The kalama of La ilaha illAllah Enya, two qualities for these men and women. One was rU joola and the other one was a flop allele. First was manliness.

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

What is the opposite of manliness? cowardice.

00:04:50--> 00:04:54

So proper wasn't interested in cowards. He wasn't interested in people who offend citizens.

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

He wasn't interested in people who said Let's run away and fight another day.

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

Learn the kind of people you wanted. The only people who would all be standing in the front of people will be fighting to stand in the front and we'll hear about them later on. Secondly

00:05:13--> 00:05:34

the second quality that he demanded of his first 200 followers was that they should all be of a very high note intellectual standing, not material standing no have a very high standing in character. He needed people who had fraud as characters not flawless but close to flawless characters.

00:05:38--> 00:05:42

To 100 out of how many do you think what is the population of MCI at the time?

00:05:44--> 00:05:49

Take a guess. What do you think was the population of America at the time was the reason million

00:05:52--> 00:05:54

50,000 that's close enough

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

innovation Anybody else? For the flame?

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

Anybody else

00:06:02--> 00:06:05

see how inspired you are in the month of Ramadan? take a wild guess.

00:06:07--> 00:06:14

gazes against Africa old into it not gonna lose any reward for Mandarin or even a break your fast he will give you the wrong just give an answer. You may be

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

under 1000 okay

00:06:18--> 00:06:38

30 years Mashallah. He's wearing a turban? That's fine. Exactly. 30,000. Exactly. 30,000. So 200 or 30,000? It's a negligible percentage, one would say it's not even, um, you can't even I mean, 200 people against 50,000. And of the first converts, of course, well, first his wife Khadija.

00:06:39--> 00:06:48

Ravi Allah Khadija been Toyland and IJA the daughter of Hawaii Lita give you, who was this woman, her Asia. What is the history?

00:06:49--> 00:07:03

For us? mother's name was Fatima again, that's why she gave her daughter's name Fatima. She was also the daughter without him. So Khadija was Binti Fatima also been deployed, she would came from a very rich family, one of the richest families of MK

00:07:05--> 00:07:19

a first husband, she married he was of the tribe of tribe of Atomium the Tamimi tribe. And she set him up in business. He became a very rich businessman, unfortunately passed away at a young age and she had two daughters by him.

00:07:20--> 00:08:07

Being Canadian is wahala and hinden. Two daughters, he died she married again, man from the tribe of zoom tribe. But it was a matter of in case they weren't compatible. We thought compatibility was only for this age. People were incompatible in the time before the covering of Sara Larson, Larsson. Again I say that, therefore the Quran speaks to all for all time. Why? Because the Quran addresses the natural nature of men, the nature of men will never change. And therefore the Quran will always be a message in a voice address the nature of men so the question in compatibility was always there amongst people so she divorced him or he divorced. He

00:08:09--> 00:08:16

also had a daughter from him called hinda. In the hinda. She had three daughters then Hina and hint and holla.

00:08:18--> 00:08:29

After she divorced the second husband or they parted, she concentrated on a business she was an import export, very big import export, merchant of NACA.

00:08:30--> 00:08:37

So one also now gets the sense that maca at the time of the resale of the Nevada

00:08:38--> 00:08:48

was not just a mecca where men were pressing women knew or men were bearing the doors alive. No. Yes, those

00:08:50--> 00:09:01

makeable incidents took place. But it tells us that women have quite a high status in Mexican society that they were traders First of all, like the Ansari

00:09:02--> 00:09:06

like the people of Medina, women of Medina also were very good traders.

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

The second was Abu Bakr

00:09:12--> 00:09:27

abubaker Casa de la de la de la, I must give you some idea of what this may look like. You may think that Abu Bakar was this seven foot tall, you know 200 Stone man, you know look like a sumo wrestler. That's why we're so brave.

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

And

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

these three books tell us about the spread.

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

The word the use of a bucket in Arabic is the word natif.

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

Not Hanif the heath.

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

And what is the word? Give me the word naive means lean, and thin. Air wants to describe someone who is very lean and then they call him the leaf. So a backer was a tall lead and Thin Man was about over he had

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

Deep eyes deep eyes, and he had a slightly protruding for it. Say he wasn't

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

a very

00:10:11--> 00:10:15

he wasn't a warrior type of person. He was a thin lean man.

00:10:16--> 00:10:27

He wasn't particularly a fighter. And then was it the third one? And we know a lot about alika Ramallah Hua. Then there was ADB harita, invading the haritha

00:10:28--> 00:10:33

as an interesting history, so I'm going to give a little bit of digression and give a little bit of the history of zeta

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

zeta niharika.

00:10:37--> 00:10:43

Why was in the fourth person to become Islam, Khadija abubaker Holly Zaid,

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

who was at myaree

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

Xavi haritha.

00:10:55--> 00:11:00

The Prophet called him this is before he became a prophet codium. Zaid, even if I hadn't

00:11:02--> 00:11:10

called Zane Zane, the son of Mohammed, in fact, he had adopted Jade and made him his, like his own son.

00:11:12--> 00:11:22

So that was very lationship. Zaid, if niharika had with an obese alcoholism, such a close relationship, but who was

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

his father tells the story.

00:11:30--> 00:11:36

They lived there was a name of a child living far away from Accra. He was a young boy,

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

maybe around about the age of 10.

00:11:41--> 00:11:59

And one day his mother asked his father haritha whether they could visit a child there was a caravan going that way. And she wanted to take the boy with her. And she took Jade with her so mother and son traveled to visit a time where it was in the desert.

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

And then the tribe was attacked by another tribe,

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

and Zetas, Young's a boy was taken, captured taken prisoner.

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

for one purpose only for sale, the terms of the damn food only to steal women and children and men to sell them as slaves. Because slavery was like you sell radios and TVs today. Slavery was part of life at the time, the old world

00:12:29--> 00:12:34

was enmeshed in some kind of slavery. He was eventually sold to a nephew of Satan.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

This was because before Khadija got married to him that he saw some of this as long before that.

00:12:41--> 00:12:53

And eventually this nephew gave Zaid as a gift to say that in a hurry Jarrah de la de la. He lived in a house until she married the Nabi sallallahu wasallam. And the first thing she did was

00:12:54--> 00:13:02

she gave Zaid as a gift to the Nabi sallallahu sallam. He was a young boy, the first thing he did was set him free.

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

first interview was Mr. Sam city.

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

And Ravi Salaam, treated him, like a Mohammed should treat

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

his slave voice with complete honesty, respect and love.

00:13:20--> 00:13:27

And one day, some of the people of his father's tribe came to visit Makkah, and they recognize aid.

00:13:29--> 00:13:43

And they went back and told his father, we found your son, that was maybe now 15 or 16 years old, we found your son. And the father was very happy he took his brother with him and they went and

00:13:45--> 00:13:57

this is before the rissalah before the double, they came to the interview salah and evisa salaam, say today, do you know these people who say this is my father? This is Mark.

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

So how do you say to the Navy SEAL Salah or messenger of Allah Miriam's image of Alison Obama, so saddam we've heard very good things about him, then you lean towards his own. I asked you please to give my son back

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

to the Navy Sallam said to him, say to date?

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

No, because someone said to him,

00:14:22--> 00:14:36

if he wishes to go back with you, with all my heart and all my love, I will give him to you. But if he decides to remain with me, while law he I will not leave him for one moment.

00:14:38--> 00:14:50

So they cause now boys to ants. So they said to his father, oh my father. I have in Muhammad both a father and an uncle.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

I will not leave him his feet. Imagine our worldly must have been treated by the enemy for a man to give up his own father.

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

Imagine the love that Lisa saladmaster instilled in this in this young man.

00:15:05--> 00:15:27

Father was very sad but also happy that the son was in good company. So happy, took the ball, went to the Kaaba and addressed the corporation said this from today this is my son His name is his name is Zaid Mohammed. And if I die you will inherit from me and if he dies I wouldn't hear it from him.

00:15:30--> 00:15:35

Because he was overwhelmed by the love that this young boy had for the Navy solo Larson.

00:15:36--> 00:15:50

And when that is all sudden became a profit or now after our last 100 reveal the verse to the newbies Allahu Allah said, Makana Mohammed about I had in the region when I came, Rasool Allah, wa Ha.

00:15:52--> 00:16:15

This word can destroy the whole concept of adoption in Islam. Allah, Allah says to nerissa salaam, you oberheim masala will not be the father of any men on this earth. You cannot be the father, you will not be the father of any man who's number one among three sons, all of them passed away in in infancy.

00:16:17--> 00:16:24

And that proves that who are Mohamed Salah, that at that time Allah revealed this verse, I mean, you could have had many sons, but never had any son. And

00:16:26--> 00:16:41

they reverted back to say the me haritha. And from this point onwards, Islam says that a child, if it is taken up by another family must retain the name of the Father.

00:16:42--> 00:17:04

You cannot give the child you're certainly not allowed Islam. In fact, the whole question of adoption is or learning Islam, you can take a child into your home, but that child will remain the child of his natural parents. There is no such thing as you not becoming the legal parents of the child. Now in Islam, that concept doesn't exist.

00:17:05--> 00:17:12

So that was a deeply hairy zaidan niharika eventually died at the Battle of Mukta.

00:17:14--> 00:17:23

The Prophet always appointed him as a commander. He was always a commander of the army. He died the Battle of Malta. Greg battle with two plays between the Muslims.

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

And then

00:17:27--> 00:17:37

and then, and the Romans I said last week and the Romans great battle took place between the Muslim and the Romans and he was the first commander there for commanders. All of them died in that battle.

00:17:39--> 00:17:47

Our Casa de Graciela Turan, as I said, in the first week after you became Muslim, converted six men to Islam, all of them

00:17:48--> 00:18:06

were promised Jana on the dounia by the Navy so Sandra lost. Can you imagine? first week of Islam? He only knew for sutras in Nevada, three sutras in the five to high converts for men. six men of the greatest man who ever lived the least to be some automatic naffaa

00:18:07--> 00:18:14

very handsome man. He married the marriage retire the daughter of the Navy so sanlam the most beautiful girl they said in Makkah at the time.

00:18:16--> 00:18:33

So beauty sought beauty was also a natural instinct of pet. It was not just a man and taqwa so he was you know his his his hobbies and he you know went to doll or lumen so you know and so you know give me my daughter even if he you no matter what it looks like no no

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

we can face a human yeah buddy no no no no.

00:18:41--> 00:19:09

Like for like in Islam follows the natural way Don't tell your children yes marry so and so on very sound so just because the person is a doctor or lawyer or is a chef or a marble we can read nicely know what is required. Correct. What is the half is musical no character the chef has been okay it shouldn't give you don't give. If the builder and the plumber visco, the man of character, man of deed, rather give your daughter to that person.

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

sauceman Imli ufford de la

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

Torre de la

00:19:22--> 00:19:43

vida en la apertura Marina Del sub Demi waka Sat Nav will pass and Abu Zubaydah evening algebra to listen to the names I mean, you you listen to the names you can feel the vibration in the names of these people. And I'm just gonna digress with one person sad in that we were cos

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

savinelli will cause the problem refer to him as my maternal uncle.

00:19:50--> 00:19:56

He was the man who was chosen to lead a Muslim army of 50,000

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

companions of the Navy source Allah

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

In the Battle of qadisiya

00:20:03--> 00:20:14

who was fought in the Battle of qadisiya, we say the Battle of both our towers whether it was the Romans Battle of qadisiya was whether it was the Persians and who was the leader of the Persian army.

00:20:16--> 00:20:23

Leader of the Persian army, the great debt was at that time, the Persian the Persian army was the second biggest debt was the Soviet Union.

00:20:24--> 00:20:32

The Romans was the Americans. At that time, it was a bipolar world. These were the two superpowers, Romans

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

and Persians.

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

Every time this was in the time of birth, it wasn't a

00:20:43--> 00:20:50

50,000 Sahaba against how many of the Persians under Rasta Rustenburg great.

00:20:53--> 00:21:07

The Persians were 100,000 men, of course being the second ever the second biggest army in the world and the second superpower they have the best weapons Sahaba only head Swartz and spears and arrows it's all there.

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

And Russell better based artillery, they came with elephants onto the battlefield 100,000 men against 30,000 men.

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

bloodbath isn't a thing. bloodbath is a bloodbath.

00:21:26--> 00:21:32

What was the advice of honorable hottub when he appointed us?

00:21:35--> 00:21:50

I'm not gonna quote word by word. I'm gonna give you the gist of what he said to Saudi Arabia workers when he placed him in charge of the army to face the second biggest power. military power military might

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

be sitting outside.

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

I'm appointing you as head of this army.

00:22:01--> 00:22:11

Never for one moment think that your success lies in the fact that you You are the uncle of Hamas or sanlam or you are a companion.

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

You said Don't

00:22:18--> 00:22:21

be overconfident in the fact that you are

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

uncle Mohamed Salah or you are competitive

00:22:27--> 00:22:32

your success and the success of this mission lies in your obedience to Allah and Allah.

00:22:37--> 00:22:45

So remind yourself of the words of Mohammed Salah last time he was revealed to him and give it to us.

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

That is your guide.

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

You should have no other guide

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

solaria

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

course

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

it was a great strategist.

00:23:01--> 00:23:08

And the Battle of the sea I think I really related the story to but it's even today they still study.

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

The maneuvers of Samuel be with us in that battle. You know, modern

00:23:15--> 00:23:30

people who study warfare they still study the methods of Saudi Arabia will cost 30,000 again, eventually of course they beat the Persian army pushed them back and conquered the whole Persian took them two years of skirmishes and battles.

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

So for two years, they left Medina

00:23:34--> 00:23:39

two years 30,000 of the Sahaba left money left their wives, the children, the businesses

00:23:41--> 00:23:46

so that we today can sit here and go home and listen to the story of Odyssey

00:23:50--> 00:23:58

as a man was 34 years old and became a strip of man radical city for dramatic narrows. 32 talha 15

00:23:59--> 00:24:11

Saudi Navy workers 21 of our regular 24 several young men of old men young men. And as I always ask myself the question, you know, how much knowledge they have?

00:24:13--> 00:24:16

How much knowledge Do I have you have compared to the knowledge they have?

00:24:18--> 00:24:23

Why is it that they achieve so much with so little and we achieve so little?

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

was so much

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

I mean, we have people we have 1000s of offers. Let's memorize the whole Quran from cover to cover

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

1000s

00:24:36--> 00:24:39

that memorize the Jews,

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

millions in the world today.

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

But we like a bunch of screws.

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

You can do this. In practice.

00:24:50--> 00:24:56

Hundreds of 1000s of people are dying in Burma Muslims are being slaughtered as I'm talking to you. Houses are burned down.

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

They don't

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

A lot of visiting Navy accept permission from the police. Burma Muslims

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

in the world is silent,

00:25:08--> 00:25:15

thoroughly silent. Why is why is the world silent? Because I'm silent. Because you silent. That's beside

00:25:17--> 00:25:34

me I remember in 1983 1983 was it 89, the early 80s I was in Bangladesh, and I met some of the Rohingya refugees from from Burma. So this problem of the Burmese Muslims and the oppression comes

00:25:37--> 00:25:49

along for a long time. And it's by time that we have a campaign in Sharla to highlight the plight of the Muslims in what is the difference between Muslims in Burma and Muslims in Palestine

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

and Muslims in the field Muslims, Muslims in Kashmiri Muslims

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

or Muslims in in Kosovo.

00:26:02--> 00:26:05

They're all Muslims, all our responsibility.

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

But what do they have, which we don't have? They didn't have the knowledge we have.

00:26:16--> 00:26:24

They didn't have what we have today in terms of technology. But what did they have? They had what's called passion, passion.

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

And you know, there's a there's an Arabic word for this

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

zeal

00:26:33--> 00:26:34

in English.

00:26:36--> 00:26:40

Forever, I must tell you what the Arabic word is the Arabic word is the rira.

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

rira rira means zeal and passion.

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

And I think our Africans with Hera

00:26:51--> 00:26:52

comes from this era.

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

It just might be a little bit of Tafseer on the side

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

you have something you know something big of a salad on the side, you know, a little bit of Tafseer on the side, Riera in here or something me maybe these maybe it is maybe you know, some 300 years ago somebody saw the connection between the hero and that the people get to know the hero so that his healer You know, they're just they could develop this the zest and zeal

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

and of course,

00:27:30--> 00:27:31

they had

00:27:32--> 00:27:54

faith. Let me say Salaam said leucaena email Alma. ve Kofi. McCafferty, Vika fatin Rosina email abubaker FECA law Raja Hema to be back. So someone said, if the amount of aboubaker that you put on the scale, and the amount of the all of the oma should be put on the other side of the scale,

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

the amount of abubaker would go

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

down on the scale.

00:28:02--> 00:28:19

Hi, Jay, my is my last words coming out clearly clearer today. I'm very conscious, you know, people have reminded me last week that my sentences seem to take off and then you can't hear the end of the sentence. So, Mashallah, today I'm conscious of it, and are trying to improve each all on my diction, and my presentation

00:28:21--> 00:28:23

after all these years,

00:28:24--> 00:28:35

so in about five weeks, with these four students, these 45 converts, as I would call them, with an average youthful age of 25.

00:28:37--> 00:28:39

Started now people say, you know,

00:28:40--> 00:28:52

that all the people who became Muslim in the beginning of all the poor people, you know, they rally to the Nevis asylum, all the poor people are Mm hmm. No, no, no, no. All the 45

00:28:53--> 00:29:00

people who became Muslim in the first five weeks 54 of them one of the richest people in Medina in Makkah, only 11 were poor.

00:29:02--> 00:29:06

Among them, among them were slaves also below average in the US.

00:29:08--> 00:29:18

And all the good that we see today is because of these 45 men, women and young men who became Muslim in the first five weeks of Islam,

00:29:19--> 00:29:28

imagine they lit the torch for us that we can still ride and walk and live in the light of the glory of the Quran.

00:29:30--> 00:29:33

So, the yardstick was

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

for the companions of Muhammad Salah

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

what

00:29:43--> 00:29:50

contribution they could make to the further ends of the cause of allows paddle time.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

In other words, the yardstick was what can you do for Islam? Islam is not here to say

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

How many people can come to the budget? This is the objective of Islam. How can they be the objective of Islam? We know world isn't as cheap.

00:30:09--> 00:30:27

How can you objective? Yeah, how many people go for Hajj? How can you objective? Yeah, how many people go for opera? No. The objective of Islam the measure the measurement of a good Muslim is what contribution do you make to this Deen of Allah, that is the measure of your Islam in your email.

00:30:29--> 00:30:33

You know, I remember when I was young, very young, I was matric.

00:30:36--> 00:30:38

And I love the Lansdowne.

00:30:40--> 00:30:42

My father was a mom with dementia, it is a very small budget.

00:30:43--> 00:30:53

And Musk was in a very dilapidated state. In fact, all mosques at that time was the very dilepton you couldn't go to a toilet the any at maybe two nos in Cape Town, could you go to the toilet?

00:30:55--> 00:31:02

Toilet toilet were in the worst condition that you could ever imagine. I mean, people of my age will know what I'm talking about.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

I remember how to edit a lesson.

00:31:07--> 00:31:08

I mean, I didn't even want to think about

00:31:09--> 00:31:14

you know, that was no flush toilet. So it was outside. It is a belly toilet and all that sort of stuff.

00:31:15--> 00:31:18

But we survived a little bit of a cold that is fact.

00:31:20--> 00:31:28

And I remember clearly, you know, we saw the mosque as it was. And I said to other young people in my class, I was at Oakland.

00:31:29--> 00:31:33

And I said, Let's, let's paint the nice treatment, this decrease the pain.

00:31:34--> 00:31:40

Because that time, you know, the older people used to call us in the clinics, you know, we were the dentists.

00:31:41--> 00:31:45

I remember that the chef's at that time is to say no harm for long enough. I

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

was you know, as I was quite an upstart, a slaver upstart.

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

So

00:31:54--> 00:32:01

I said, you know, we can't do the magic like this, how can we leave and look at the Muslims look at the church, what it looks like, you know, look at our Muslims, like, you know,

00:32:02--> 00:32:08

painted what you can do, I said, well, we're gonna just go out under the people and say, we will append the margin, they must give us money to buy pay.

00:32:09--> 00:32:24

And really, I mean, it was a small effort. But eventually we got the people to rally, they gave us money, we bought the paint, we had scaffolding, we painted the magic, all messed up, inside and outside, right up to the north elements does paint, paint. So there was a need.

00:32:25--> 00:33:04

And I think people saw that we were young, we were just children. I mean, we were just in scrape ice, and we were in high school. And so I appeal to the young people in this lecture today. You know, the high school students and the young boys and girls, fullness, having to group and say, let's do something for Islam. I mean, this is Burma issue can expect me now to run around and start over. No, you must come fool myself into a group, even even just cousins or friends or high school buddies, get together and say, Yes, go to share, we prepared to do something for Islam. There's a lot of projects that I have that you can do for Islam, come to me

00:33:06--> 00:33:30

give you advice, give you the guidance into something, maybe forever, maybe it's a six month project or a year's project, and you can maybe do something for Islam. And that is that is your measurement. And that is are we going to progress now we're going to prosper, we're going to go forward. You know, if you ever encourage young people to form groups, I mean, you have the scouts movement in every committee, there's this council, but we don't have it in amongst the Muslims.

00:33:32--> 00:33:37

Why not? Because we don't encourage young people to do things for Islam.

00:33:40--> 00:33:51

I mean, I, my son was telling me the other day. And again, I'm digressing. But it's important for you to know this. Do you know, in Indonesia,

00:33:55--> 00:34:01

don't know if it's 200,000 people or 20,000 people convert to Christianity every single year

00:34:02--> 00:34:06

with 200,000 people, and they say by 2020.

00:34:07--> 00:34:09

Indonesia is going to be a majority Christian state.

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

Yeah.

00:34:17--> 00:34:23

I mean, we've been here 300 years, we haven't made much progress in convergence. And we we still have our 2% of this population of

00:34:24--> 00:34:29

50 million we still 2 million total, we haven't really made any breakthroughs ourselves.

00:34:32--> 00:34:37

So here's a nation of 200 million Muslims was being attacked from all corners.

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

And

00:34:42--> 00:34:50

their organizations outside of Indonesia was not forming themselves to go into Indonesia, and to try and stem the tide

00:34:51--> 00:34:55

of the conversions. And the conversions are mainly amongst young people

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

because the older people are older and younger

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

So there are lots of challenges. And if we form a group, maybe there isn't a challenge for us here in this country. But there may be challenges in other African countries may be challenges in other parts of the world.

00:35:14--> 00:35:27

And I've seen in my travels, our so called lighter skinned European, young men and women traveled throughout the world. I mean, they, they grew up in Malaysia, they preach and they, they, they, they do all kinds of things, you know,

00:35:30--> 00:35:31

with a faith in his faithfulness.

00:35:33--> 00:35:45

And we have the best data the last time that was given to us. And yet we, we contend to say that, yes, you know, if you make Salah five times a day, you know, you're gonna go to jail, you know, and it must be in the masjid.

00:35:46--> 00:35:48

Our purpose is to be outside the masjid.

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

We must be in the magic, every walk for the walk.

00:35:54--> 00:36:05

And for the rest of the 23 hours, we must spend in the marketplaces in the streets on the campuses, rallying for Islam and doing something for Islam. If you can't do anything to Islam,

00:36:06--> 00:36:08

give them for the cause of Islam.

00:36:09--> 00:36:30

or encourage your children to do something for Islam. Read and see what you can do as a family where you have a small family project that you can do for something, don't give people super bread, please, don't give people food, please. We have given people enough food. People don't need food in this country. They need our they need

00:36:32--> 00:36:47

all the feedings keys your bed for 300 years. What is it that if I could spell it? Let's do something better, something more, something more challenging. It's the most challenging thing to do to make to make a pot of food.

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

Just for your conscience. When the steam is gone, and the food is gone? What do you what do you see?

00:36:53--> 00:37:08

What do we have? Baby? We spent 1008 on the pot of food to maybe 2000 could you not have taken that money and done something maybe more constructive. Got to get the 10 people to give the 2000 20,000

00:37:09--> 00:37:27

maybe you can send two young chefs to Indonesia, Indonesia, or to Burma or to Vietnam. I mean, I was in Vietnam. I visited Vietnam. I visited Mekong Delta I was there. I saw the small number of Muslims in Saigon

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

once more melted in sanko.

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

living next to a nation of 200 million Muslims, Malaysia is a majority Muslim country.

00:37:38--> 00:37:40

Thailand, it's got a lot of Muslims.

00:37:41--> 00:37:55

And what do I see the I see other nations coming? They're giving off their religion, Buddhism, and Hinduism and Christianity. And what do we need? So the world is out there. You have children.

00:37:57--> 00:38:27

You have families, use the children in your families, accumulate the money, go them to Vietnam, go them to Indonesia. This is what the Sahaba did. They didn't stay in Medina, the guru said, Oh, you know, prophets gravies here you know, on the barricades, you're not going to leave Medina I'm gonna sit in the magical nabawi and pray naroda You know the old adage, you know, hold down, we're praying that this is the garden of Paradise, I'm not going to leave the garden of Paradise property. Between my member and my grave this garden of paradise.

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

We die in the garden of Paradise Islam dies with us in the garden of paradise.

00:38:36--> 00:38:39

We have to leave the gander paradise, the Sikh paradise

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

where it is required for us to see paradise.

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

So now in the first three years

00:38:50--> 00:38:52

there was no problem with the parish, no problem.

00:38:54--> 00:39:00

That was done silently. People converted silently no problem second stage. So the second stage

00:39:03--> 00:39:07

we have now reached a second stage. We have now to proclaim this deed

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

publicly

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

200 of us publicly.

00:39:13--> 00:39:16

No, no, no, no, no, no. We okay like this.

00:39:18--> 00:39:21

Like we say today No, let's, let's go. Let's.

00:39:22--> 00:39:23

I was thinking the other day. You know?

00:39:25--> 00:39:28

We have lots of people in this country with good character but no Islam.

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

I mean, if I look at Africa,

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

look at the African people.

00:39:35--> 00:39:44

They many of you have dealt with it. People have good character. The women dress modestly. They are good Christians. They love the church. They love the God.

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

Imagine we can convert that to Islam, when we can take the African people and convert that good character that they have and make them Muslim. But how many of us have actually thought of going to Stellenbosch or going to Paul

00:40:00--> 00:40:31

or going to Tiger Valley. And standing there one morning in the mall, and print pamphlets, stuff recounts the Koran on the Islamic, just keep it out. That's all you have to remember. We're not here to convert people to Islam, Allah converts. Our job is to give the towers that's something that can be on a Sunday, I think I'm preaching to the same people, you know, all my life, you know, maybe I can go and stand on the parade. You know, I met those people there.

00:40:32--> 00:40:42

And maybe it'll be more beneficial. So maybe what you can do is you want to make a part of a next everything No, no, no, no, wait, let me take my money. Let me go to my chef, or to somebody and say,

00:40:44--> 00:40:52

I will give money to print literature in Afrikaans. It goes on Islam. I will take my children.

00:40:54--> 00:41:02

One Saturday afternoon, we'll go somewhere, we'll stand outside the mall. And all we'll do is we will just hand out that you go the candle up

00:41:04--> 00:41:05

in a suit, tie.

00:41:07--> 00:41:10

jacket, look welljust and

00:41:12--> 00:41:14

you stand in and you say,

00:41:15--> 00:41:17

all you have to do nothing more just

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

Allah gives hidayah

00:41:21--> 00:41:26

but at least you will be able to say to yourself, I've given the message.

00:41:27--> 00:41:45

I've done what my Prophet said. But they will only or no I give the message even if it's a message. That is that is that is the goal of today. The call of the day is to give the message I mean, everybody's using the internet to do what?

00:41:47--> 00:41:50

To give them a seat. It's all about

00:41:51--> 00:41:56

converting the minds of people to become whatever they want you to become.

00:41:58--> 00:42:03

Pro soon the anti sadhana, Salafi tably Wahby whatever you have a Sufi

00:42:04--> 00:42:20

about the hearts and minds. So we need to win the hearts and minds of other people. So one day when those people say about love they'll say no this man came at least he gave me a I read I know this is what Islam is because you must assume they don't know. We must make that assumption they don't know.

00:42:23--> 00:42:34

So allows was revealed to me that is a subset of Asian fossa Bhima tomar rd, Danny Bush, the key message came clearly proclaim openly Allah's message

00:42:35--> 00:42:51

was that which you are commanded. I'm giving you all this information, not just as information, please, I want you to go home and think about what I'm saying. You have shops, offices, surgeries, pharmacies.

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

You have all kinds of people coming

00:42:56--> 00:43:04

you have people speaking differently you should at least have one avenue every doc boosting doctors get a pamphlet in causa, one Africans one in English.

00:43:05--> 00:43:06

No, but what do we see?

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

cosmopolitan

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

all kinds of lewd lurid magazines.

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

So when you go to visit your doctor,

00:43:17--> 00:43:22

you should in fact put into practice and give it a don't say two ways. You should say that.

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

I put this on your table.

00:43:26--> 00:43:35

And it stuck it up all the time. And all that money that you wasted on things. You say My life is not going to be one of our silent our

00:43:36--> 00:43:37

I'm gonna use my money for the Dow.

00:43:41--> 00:43:42

So proclaim.

00:43:44--> 00:43:50

And then also I'm gonna say to him, we're under asherah takakura first now you must go to

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

your nearest family

00:43:55--> 00:43:56

because you always forget the nearest family.

00:43:57--> 00:44:02

So what did he do? He got together a group from the band who Abdulmutallab

00:44:03--> 00:44:43

his grandfather's people and rubber band Ohashi. But 45 people who call them to get in a meeting, like you could do what you call him to a meeting. Say we want to do this for Islam. Let's do something voiceless. We're always fighting amongst each other. You know, COVID bukoba main Indiana COVID-19, Indiana macadamia and DNS TDMA kukicha dana, Dana and Dana, come visit me and Dana 44 Manian. We're always always about the same old recorded place from here in India, get them together and say let's do something for Islam. Everybody put in there and do something for Islam. We've got all our ma we've got. We've, you know, Allah has given us all the tools that we need. We've got

00:44:43--> 00:44:58

professional Muslims in every field. There is not a single field that we don't have a Muslim who is as qualified and is reached the top levels in his in his profession. And it's in your family's mark. Our families, we have

00:45:02--> 00:45:09

So I got to get the 45 of them amongst the most Abu Jalla Bula all his friends.

00:45:11--> 00:45:16

This was the first confrontation with his family. You know, this is the worst thing to confront your family.

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

So, I can imagine basically 45 people sitting

00:45:24--> 00:45:28

have a salad miss a beer, so somebody's sitting, and they silence

00:45:31--> 00:45:34

because everybody now wants to know what is this meeting for? You know?

00:45:36--> 00:45:38

sabula have opened his mouth.

00:45:40--> 00:45:50

He says is Marissa Mohammed ismar? Listen, just like that. No, hello. It's not your mom. Listen. Listen to what he said.

00:45:53--> 00:45:53

I had

00:45:55--> 00:46:06

it Allah Toby. Be shelling me mattevi Allah Subhana Allah opening statement he says, Listen, Muhammad Sallallahu

00:46:07--> 00:46:16

I don't know of anyone who has come to our nation, the Arab nation with something more worse than what you've come up with?

00:46:18--> 00:46:23

How long could that if that doesn't put you off? Nothing will put you off. See what

00:46:24--> 00:46:26

you've come with the worst thing ever to our people.

00:46:28--> 00:46:33

Then return because you know people are this is now him no formula, no

00:46:35--> 00:46:50

liquid of of citric acid. Now I have to tell you humans came to this gathering. You came to this meeting, I'll tell you something. Now. He says, say to the Quraysh with people who do it while I listen to him, open to Mohammed from Kabbalah. Rajeev Kumar

00:46:51--> 00:46:53

said to the people,

00:46:54--> 00:46:59

this form was taken by the hand and then hold him by his by his tongue

00:47:01--> 00:47:02

and close his mouth.

00:47:03--> 00:47:04

shut him up.

00:47:05--> 00:47:07

Why? Because

00:47:08--> 00:47:11

all the Arabs will become your enemy because of him.

00:47:13--> 00:47:14

And what happens are some of

00:47:15--> 00:47:16

the Illa Allah Allah

00:47:18--> 00:47:21

Allah came with was to believe and to worship Allah Allah.

00:47:23--> 00:47:26

What is the Prophet? How did the Prophet respond? What was his response?

00:47:29--> 00:47:31

He was completely quiet. didn't say anything.

00:47:32--> 00:47:38

All he said to his uncle, his uncle, his father, his brother, Abdullah, his brother, his brother.

00:47:43--> 00:47:43

He said

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

to Uncle,

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

uncle, if you want to leave now, you may leave.

00:47:51--> 00:47:56

He didn't want to confrontation, either want to start his mission with his own family with a confrontation?

00:47:57--> 00:48:10

And as I said last week was Abu lahab. So why was he so hostile towards capitalism? After all, when he loved the profit so much when the property was born, he gave the sheep for the Africa.

00:48:12--> 00:48:21

He took care of him in his arms. Look at this hostility, amazing. It's so amazing how the truth can bring hostility

00:48:23--> 00:48:26

and how the truth complete a lot of levels. Two can also be harvested.

00:48:31--> 00:48:37

In fact, more than that our laps two sons, Andrea and Nora tamer was engaged

00:48:38--> 00:48:41

to the two daughters of the NaVi salatu salam

00:48:42--> 00:48:44

don't consume and Rokia.

00:48:45--> 00:48:46

So they are going to become

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

the one only uncle and an uncle and uncle and nephew. They've also become fathers in law.

00:48:56--> 00:48:57

Although no Teva was

00:48:59--> 00:49:16

engaged, so it was very, very close family. But why was Abu Jamal dosta because he saw that if Mohammed Salah was going to succeed, to minimize any event to destroy the idols around the Kaaba,

00:49:17--> 00:49:21

the tribes would not come to make business in Mecca anymore.

00:49:22--> 00:49:24

And his bottom line would

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

decrease.

00:49:28--> 00:49:29

So it's all about

00:49:31--> 00:49:31

money,

00:49:33--> 00:49:34

all about the merchant class,

00:49:35--> 00:49:42

and the merchant class and the good merchant class and good traders, the good merchant class classes all over the world.

00:49:44--> 00:49:54

But you will find that it's the merchant class always who will nurture a society which will be subservient to the natural class.

00:49:58--> 00:50:00

So rather than having a salad was good

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

To address the gathering for the first time he was going to address the gathering.

00:50:04--> 00:50:10

He said this was his first words. It was his first public lecture Alhamdulillah I have no idea who

00:50:12--> 00:50:21

he was at our karate, we started instead, I thanked him, praise Allah. I seek his help. I believe in him. I depend on him.

00:50:22--> 00:50:30

I shadow Allah, Allah Illallah there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. Wa de la sharika was no partner.

00:50:32--> 00:50:36

And then he looked at him and said, what law he located up to NASA JB Hunt.

00:50:37--> 00:51:02

To cook he said, Oh, Quraysh are my family. If the whole of the world should mislead you, I will never mislead you. Will Ohara to Nazi Germany and Morocco. And if the whole of humanity should deceive you remember I will never deceive you what la de la Vila Isla de la Vega in near assume la la que hacer la

00:51:04--> 00:51:07

he said to them will lie I swear to Allah.

00:51:09--> 00:51:26

There is no other ILA that is the Messenger of Allah, to you especially, and to the whole of mankind, generally, one law because this was the moot point. The mood point of belief between the Quraysh and Islam was in the Quran did not believe in

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

like the Buddhists

00:51:30--> 00:51:33

and the Hindus know after they come back all the time.

00:51:35--> 00:51:36

They get recycled

00:51:37--> 00:51:42

all the time into rats and cats dogs and mice and all kinds of things to the recycle

00:51:47--> 00:51:57

and the college believe the same courage believe which are dust finish. Oh, they might even recycling courage wasn't the reason they were the recyclers. They said finish gone in Yukon.

00:51:59--> 00:52:02

They've never said well, ah he that taboo to nakaba

00:52:03--> 00:52:09

terrible prophecy you will die just as you sleepy. What are two bathroom Nakama sister

00:52:10--> 00:52:14

and you will be able to rise up again on Deaf piano as you rise up from your sleep

00:52:16--> 00:52:22

will lead to higher Savonarola tomorrow, and you will be judged according to what you did

00:52:23--> 00:52:31

in the higher agenda 21 a noun evidence and remember that we said after that there will be either agenda forever.

00:52:33--> 00:52:34

This is your fate.

00:52:35--> 00:52:39

Abbas was in the crowd. Abdullah bus. No our bus

00:52:40--> 00:52:46

uncle of the Libyan Hamza his uncle, Dave sitting the we never saw Sam said this. They dropped

00:52:47--> 00:52:50

from the hits looked up. who responded.

00:52:51--> 00:52:55

They were not told he's the Messenger of Allah. This is your fate.

00:52:57--> 00:52:59

Abu Talib his uncle

00:53:00--> 00:53:01

got up and said

00:53:05--> 00:53:10

MD ma who Mr. Big fella as Aloo bajo Touka

00:53:12--> 00:53:13

he said Oh, my brother said

00:53:16--> 00:53:19

carry on with what you are, what you have been commanded.

00:53:21--> 00:53:24

For I will continue to take care of you

00:53:26--> 00:53:29

and I will continue to protect you. So that was

00:53:31--> 00:53:34

a Bala have replied. So Bella was now livid.

00:53:35--> 00:53:36

Because this was

00:53:39--> 00:53:40

who was about Oliver moolah.

00:53:42--> 00:53:42

His

00:53:43--> 00:53:44

his

00:53:46--> 00:53:47

his brother

00:53:49--> 00:53:50

his brother,

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

elder brother, of course.

00:53:55--> 00:53:57

He got up and he said in the castle

00:53:59--> 00:54:04

in the reservoir. This is a disgrace. He can imagine how

00:54:06--> 00:54:13

how angry he must have been looking for support. He said this is a total disgrace what's going on here. MC Carla

00:54:15--> 00:54:21

said you must stop this van. Stop him. Stop Mohamed Salah. You must stop him before he

00:54:22--> 00:54:25

takes you all done with him. Abu Talib Lupita

00:54:26--> 00:54:32

lamda Nana who Baba Katie says I will protect him as long as I'm alive.

00:54:34--> 00:54:39

I will protect him. So now there was a standoff between one breath and the other brother.

00:54:40--> 00:54:42

The crowd fell silent.

00:54:43--> 00:54:43

What now?

00:54:45--> 00:54:57

What was the profits? What profit one from them. He wanted the man. So the next segment he made was for Mad Men come up magic to be he said so who of you will believe in what I brought for you?

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

How's it Abbas again

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

Drop the heads

00:55:04--> 00:55:11

if only they knew you were still with the property. I mean, they became Muslim later on, of course, but at the crucial point,

00:55:12--> 00:55:19

family ties with stronger loyalty to you look at your uncle, look at your father.

00:55:20--> 00:55:21

Don't agree.

00:55:22--> 00:55:31

You say well if they don't agree, when you agree, even if it's a truth I mean, you can't count against my, my brother or my uncle, you know.

00:55:34--> 00:55:35

And so

00:55:38--> 00:55:58

Abu Talib responded this assumes that who will follow? I did Abu Talib say to them he says I'm Anna Oba. But as for myself, Father, I didn't have to tell him I will remain on the deal and you know that you remain not enough Abdul Abdul muttalib la Assa t said I'm not able to leave my prediction I will give you

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

so one answer a negative answer. One person responded at a 45 for the negative and

00:56:07--> 00:56:16

rumo silent, who got up. There was a long silence nobody got him and said I will follow you. All his family none of his family wanted to follow him.

00:56:18--> 00:56:20

Who got a 13 year old boy.

00:56:21--> 00:56:26

Ali carambola was 13 years old. That's why I say

00:56:28--> 00:56:36

the future of this team is in the hands of young people. I mean young people I mean people like 1314 1516 1718

00:56:37--> 00:56:38

mshfa

00:56:40--> 00:56:47

look at your 13 year old and what he does at school. Aren't you amazed that is what the thing is your 12 year old Aren't you amazed

00:56:48--> 00:56:55

with what they do out you're amazed at the progress and maybe it's cool Aren't you amazed at yourself when you entertainers or

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

amazed?

00:56:57--> 00:57:03

a slump? Can McKenna's My child is you know his kids a format he's gonna become you amazed

00:57:04--> 00:57:08

but what is what do you what is your charging for Islam? Ali Carter Cotta they say to

00:57:09--> 00:57:11

atomic I'll follow you

00:57:13--> 00:57:21

I'll follow you okay with a C remark rather carry our walk with you in this road 13 years old book and

00:57:22--> 00:57:23

big uncle sir.

00:57:24--> 00:57:39

Standing this silent he gets what happened the whole room burst out laughing so they caught the support of of a kid that in his sound slump started this as this thing starts people laugh at you.

00:57:40--> 00:57:43

Because I even think starts says Mark

00:57:44--> 00:57:46

wants to do that crazy.

00:57:47--> 00:57:49

I started many things my people say oh,

00:57:50--> 00:57:54

by katavi says we're crazy. There's more crazy there's all the crazy things.

00:57:56--> 00:57:59

Remember when he launches a conference about nearly 40 years ago

00:58:02--> 00:58:04

people said What is this now? This is a hoax.

00:58:05--> 00:58:06

New boiler block

00:58:07--> 00:58:18

What is this collecting? is a car institutionalizing What is this collecting? Phaedra No, no, no, no, we must fight this. My greatest opposition was the

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

was Indonesia Council.

00:58:22--> 00:58:28

Vice President later on forgive them and shaman and silver. And now we're back to square one again.

00:58:29--> 00:58:40

La through the mosque. All the panels that govern fifth recollections calculations, not gonna mention any names a lot of the old pastor gallows economists will give them

00:58:43--> 00:58:48

why because collecting of the cafeteria was eating way. Bottom line.

00:58:50--> 00:58:53

Because at that time, all of the counterfeiter went way.

00:58:55--> 00:59:02

To the to them Emma, I know, I lived in a house of my father's email 30 years I know all those accounts came to our house.

00:59:06--> 00:59:08

And the father used to be to give it up.

00:59:11--> 00:59:19

So you can see anything that touches, whether it is Halo, or the Zika virus fitrah.

00:59:20--> 00:59:27

And yet the soccer is an institution is and they knew it. They knew that they were all a man, they knew that

00:59:29--> 00:59:31

there was a beta mile in the time of Muhammad Salah

00:59:32--> 00:59:41

that this is a collective effort by the Muslims to take them forward, isn't it? You don't acknowledge they still oppose it.

00:59:43--> 00:59:44

Because later they're too.

00:59:46--> 00:59:46

So

00:59:47--> 00:59:53

remember, if you're going to start anything, no matter what if it's a good thing, first thing you must think of is

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

opposition

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

even if it is based entirely

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

incompletely on the Quran tsunamis are the worst opposition

01:00:05--> 01:00:18

even breeds of waste and stuff and some other stuff. They'll say under that looks a bit more balanced. That looks a bit more balanced. We must bring a bit of balance in the deen on itself is not enough must be examined.

01:00:20--> 01:00:25

So after work for this deed, to everyone burst out laughing prophet Gara

01:00:28--> 01:00:30

to present put in alleys and

01:00:31--> 01:00:35

to totally to put his enemies and and that's of course not to say

01:00:37--> 01:00:38

he said this is my

01:00:40--> 01:00:49

what is the word? But what is another name? Yeah. Bye bye second in command fatale. You are like my second in command

01:00:51--> 01:01:13

ability that was only the response you got. The only response you got on that day from his family was a response alikom allowed. That's why it's such a high station in Islam. There's an emphasis on him said Well, I'm not going to publicly preach because he had the support now for the protection of his uncle. And well that protection, he could go out onto the curb and he could proclaim stood on

01:01:14--> 01:01:23

sofa, Mount sofa and he called the tribes Yeah, buddy Abdulmutallab, yada yada yada yada man and he called them all together.

01:01:24--> 01:01:27

And he addressed them and he overlooked the idols.

01:01:29--> 01:01:34

And he say to the people, is his first public versus traveling non public.

01:01:36--> 01:01:43

So first a family then you go in, make the dollar to the dollar and do the real dollar.

01:01:45--> 01:02:07

Now we had a powerful voice, fearless man, powerful voice if you are at Lois bar to come and alpha Jebel Jason akin to methodically, he said, If I tell you Oh, people, then behind this mountain is an army is coming to attack you will you believe me? Call my job. nanika Cathy balcatta said we have never experienced a life from you.

01:02:09--> 01:02:11

And he said to me Rasulullah he

01:02:13--> 01:02:17

said, I am a messenger of Allah to you and I'm awarded to you

01:02:21--> 01:02:23

by the Agha buccellati and

01:02:25--> 01:02:29

awaiting us if we don't follow this is a great punishment from a loss

01:02:30--> 01:02:31

because people never heard this before.

01:02:33--> 01:02:43

Silent most people just in silence like I'm sure if you go to Starbucks new standard and give other people will just look at you and they look at it and they say wow

01:02:44--> 01:02:47

300 years Mashallah Muslims have come give me a

01:02:49--> 01:02:49

demo.

01:02:52--> 01:03:01

And you will be amazed how much goodwill they will be. Because people are looking for the truth. People are looking for a path and we have to give it to them.

01:03:02--> 01:03:07

All they need to do duties to do they're just the first just to do the first thing.

01:03:08--> 01:03:27

Who spoke first all was quiet. Only one respondent one who is a man like this. His name is Abu lahab you'll find him everywhere. Your business, family friends everywhere fossa Bula Abu lahab

01:03:29--> 01:03:35

de la casa de la evil upon you the rest of the day when you finish

01:03:38--> 01:03:42

he couldn't do anything because we had the protection of his brother.

01:03:44--> 01:03:44

laughs It

01:03:46--> 01:03:50

is this way you get to tell us the stories. That's why you call us you

01:03:52--> 01:03:53

know responsible

01:03:55--> 01:04:00

for in the color following Avi malassezia is a man of the best of character didn't respond.

01:04:01--> 01:04:05

Prophet came down, Prophet descended from from Safa, Allah revealed the verse,

01:04:06--> 01:04:08

the batiyagarh vilavi.

01:04:09--> 01:04:12

Perish the hands perish, Angela Bula.

01:04:14--> 01:04:20

And yet Abu Jamal did more harm to the Navy Salah in Abu Dhabi. But it's nothing major in the Parana pada puja.

01:04:21--> 01:04:27

But this verse was revealed for him Abu lahab and his wife, oh my god, why?

01:04:28--> 01:04:38

Why is it that Allah can steaming apparently not Abuja, in Abuja was his inveterate enemy. He didn't wanna be more than a Bulava to the Navy salsa.

01:04:42--> 01:04:48

The reason is that all of us say that is because Abdullah was the first to oppose them

01:04:50--> 01:04:51

publicly and privately.

01:04:53--> 01:04:57

And the message for us is don't start anything bad.

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

Don't teach others things bad Don't let lead.

01:05:05--> 01:05:09

Allah dislikes intensely the person who misleads and starts things which are bad

01:05:12--> 01:05:14

man suddenly said man suddenly.

01:05:15--> 01:05:16

So, net and

01:05:17--> 01:05:25

family withdraw, why resume and Hobby Lobby I said whosoever starts a bad thing

01:05:27--> 01:05:29

the center of that thing will be on him

01:05:31--> 01:05:36

for starting it, and all the people who followed him all these things will be on him.

01:05:46--> 01:05:50

Cyber lab shares the sin of all those who oppose Maha masala

01:05:51--> 01:05:52

everybody opposes.

01:05:57--> 01:06:00

So, now the opposition started first.

01:06:02--> 01:06:09

Listen to this, you see, when you listen to these three must compare the AEC to what is happening today, both in your own community and in the world.

01:06:12--> 01:06:13

Because history

01:06:14--> 01:06:19

repeats itself. What is the first method they use against?

01:06:20--> 01:06:20

touchy

01:06:22--> 01:06:26

touchy doubt? Oh,

01:06:27--> 01:06:31

oh, he doesn't understand, oh, he doesn't do this. But he says

01:06:33--> 01:06:34

to me, he's a nice guy. But you know,

01:06:36--> 01:06:56

we don't know what happened to him. What happened to him suddenly is talking all this nonsense all this rubbish you know about this about our gods and about our idols and about what we believed in, you know, so many 1000s and millions of years, you know, so to speak. is a Ducati is a sorcerer

01:06:57--> 01:07:02

is a man maybe maybe it's gotten a bit crazier. He's a poet, maybe magician, fortune teller.

01:07:03--> 01:07:07

So eventually, the enemies came together and they decided no, he's a magician.

01:07:09--> 01:07:15

He's we must tell the people that he makes me deals in magic. They went to a leading liberal era, chief of the Klan.

01:07:17--> 01:07:26

They told him that they can do now tell everybody that Mohammed Salalah Salamis Majnoon is mad magician. Whereas No, no, no, no. Can't do that.

01:07:27--> 01:07:29

Raise that image? No.

01:07:31--> 01:07:35

This man is not crazy. He is a man of the highest intelligence.

01:07:36--> 01:07:42

They they said well, what can we do call him as sorcerer then he said no, no, no, no.

01:07:44--> 01:07:48

Eventually mahira is very intelligent. He said. We can call him maybe.

01:07:54--> 01:07:59

Yeah, maybe a magician. He's got something in common with with a sorcerer with a Dooku.

01:08:00--> 01:08:20

And the common thing as with Dooku is he splits families. He can take a wife away from her splits her wife away from her husband, husband away from the wife. He splits brother from brother uncle from nephew. So he's got this so we will tell the people that he is a sorcerer domestically of him. This is the message. Stay clear of that man. Don't listen to him. Don't go near him.

01:08:24--> 01:08:25

There was a man Abu

01:08:26--> 01:08:27

Abu that you've heard of him.

01:08:29--> 01:08:39

He came from a tribe bhadohi far tribe who lives at the close of the Red Sea. He heard of the prophets Aslam. He had of his opposition to him. That was a highway robber.

01:08:43--> 01:08:46

robber that was highway robbery. So Rob the people die when

01:08:50--> 01:08:54

people go for wherever they go, they go to Makkah, he robs them.

01:08:56--> 01:09:02

But he never believed in the items never worship an idol always believed in the wonders of Allah, his old tribe, the old robbers

01:09:06--> 01:09:07

when he met the Prophet

01:09:10--> 01:09:18

he said prophecy Will you lose your tribe? ACTA rasulillah I'm from the money refer. Let's see what

01:09:19--> 01:09:21

prophet looked at him up and down.

01:09:23--> 01:09:27

The Prophet knew the well known like the 26th you know, tonight's

01:09:30--> 01:09:33

or immediately you know she has a gangster

01:09:34--> 01:09:42

gangster so nobody This is a professor in no lie deep poverty in the lady by Yeshua Allah guide to be was.

01:09:43--> 01:09:52

prophesy take the message back, took the message back, but he continued robbing but he changed now. He only robbed the caravans of the Quraysh

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

that came from Syria and what did he do? When he came to the caravan? He's Italian okay.

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

Get all your goods back, ready to caliber

01:10:05--> 01:10:12

to patola. same word, different result. Same, what? Definitely resolve.

01:10:13--> 01:10:13

So

01:10:15--> 01:10:54

that is what he did. And at the same time at this very time, there were two tribes in Medina called the two tribes of Arab tribes, housing hazards, and they were Jewish tribes. And the Jews, of course, always saw themselves superior to the, to the Muslims, to the to the Arabs, because the Jews at the Torah and they believed in what Allah by they knew a prophet was going to come. And they also tell the head of the Arab times. We are living now at a time with the prophets in and it always is the point sauce to Yama. But if you're in Medina, and you point south, where does it point to push to Mecca.

01:10:56--> 01:11:05

So eventually the Prophet came this property the Jews were profiting, Jews are waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, and eventually they got the news. The Prophet came.

01:11:07--> 01:11:13

The news came to the Arabs. And the news came to the Jews. For the Jews.

01:11:14--> 01:11:25

They accepted the message, but didn't want to accept the message. He came with the right message. But he's not a Jew. So sorry. For the atoms.

01:11:26--> 01:11:29

They love Muhammad Ali did like the message.

01:11:30--> 01:11:41

So remember, this is also your fate. Some people will like you, but not your message. Some people will like what you cover, but they won't like you. You get to live with it something I deliver.

01:11:42--> 01:11:55

But the important thing is as long as you come with good buzz come with good. Your mind what people say no, they think of you just come with. And remember the measurement of a Muslim is what am I doing for Islam?

01:11:56--> 01:11:59

What am I doing for Islam? That's the measurement.

01:12:01--> 01:12:07

Even if you read something and teach it to your wife and your children, you're doing something that is something positive.

01:12:10--> 01:12:12

So today, we're not going to be so long.

01:12:14--> 01:12:24

At the end of today's lecture, with any questions, there's also going to be some sale of some books. And in Ramallah, there's going to be I think, a discount of 20% on the books. So if you want to buy some books you welcome.

01:12:26--> 01:12:32

Any any questions that you'd like to ask? Anybody want to ask anything to say anything? Comment? ways?

01:12:37--> 01:12:43

Anybody want to ask any questions? No, normally change at any question. You want to give it to Christians good?

01:12:47--> 01:12:49

Yes, yes.

01:12:52--> 01:12:52

Yes.

01:12:54--> 01:12:55

Yes.

01:12:56--> 01:12:57

Yes.

01:13:03--> 01:13:06

Yes, there is an extremely important

01:13:07--> 01:13:41

Salah that is cinnabar Musa never lifted. And he said even if there is an army chasing you shouldn't leave the making. If you come into the magic, and the Imam is making sacrifices, then you should join. Of course, you know, the rule is always join the man for joining. Join the man finish, and then you can make it after the sacrifices that they still offer that. I must tell you, there's some almost no you can't. But there is a quite a body of scholarship disease, because it's such an important center that you can make it

01:13:42--> 01:13:43

after Serato.

01:13:45--> 01:13:47

But you Leah is still

01:13:49--> 01:13:51

calculator, because there's no budget

01:13:53--> 01:13:57

for for fashion. So you still need to rock as before.

01:14:03--> 01:14:04

Yes,

01:14:05--> 01:14:06

yes.

01:14:08--> 01:14:15

Yes. I've spoken about this. And I've given my own photo which I got from

01:14:17--> 01:14:19

one of the other chefs

01:14:20--> 01:14:22

sharptooth Machado.

01:14:23--> 01:14:28

He was asked the same question. So I put the blame on him if it's wrong.

01:14:29--> 01:14:42

He was asked about the pump, because there are a lot of scholars that disagree with him. In fact, this question of the actual pump is a question which was asked to the, you know, there's a body of scholars in the world

01:14:43--> 01:15:00

where the styling from each Muslim country i think is about 50 Muslim countries represented in this forum. forum have an A meeting agenda, I think once a year, and they study all questions or questions come to them and they appoint committees. For example, a question like this, we'll come up with

01:15:00--> 01:15:20

They appointed medical committee to look at the question. And they haven't come up with an answer. And they've said in the last report that I've read that that is still being discussed, but until such time that a decision is made, an estimate can be used at such time that because there's a lot of

01:15:22--> 01:15:32

inflammation or to say that it doesn't go down into your stomach because that's, you know, anything goes into the nose, invariably, will go into the stomach.

01:15:33--> 01:15:51

But because it's in a inhaling, I think, I'm not a doctor. So whatever I say is my opinion. Because if you do that, you realize it goes down into the lungs. That's fine. So yes, international pump can be used, but for me to clear my nose with a with a squirt, I can't do that. Because you are screwed into my nose in the liquid world.

01:15:53--> 01:15:56

So I have to suffer asthma people. Mashallah.

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

So, anybody else? Yes?

01:16:13--> 01:16:13

Yes?

01:16:15--> 01:16:16

Yes?

01:16:17--> 01:16:17

Yes.

01:17:03--> 01:17:15

The brother wants to know, are all the people that you see in the more than the millions of people are not Muslim? Or the whole go to general? That basically the question I can't answer that question really, because it's our job.

01:17:16--> 01:17:31

To decide who goes to Japan. We can only give pointers we can only say unless it's in the Quran. In the deen Abdullah Al Islam from Islam, we didn't follow up valuable. Allah says Dean Allah Islam in Israel follows the deen besides Islam, it will never be accepted.

01:17:32--> 01:17:35

But my my worry is not about the people go to

01:17:36--> 01:17:48

jahannam all those worries about us was not given them the message. What do they all say about the fdmc Allah? See these Muslim Mashallah, Mashallah. The whole thing the agenda, but they never gave me the basics.

01:17:49--> 01:18:00

And then, well, Allah say, Okay, fine. I don't know what I'm not gonna say, I really don't know. But I'm just saying is, are we responsible on the view in a mall of 120,000 people?

01:18:03--> 01:18:05

If you've ever gone to one of them to say

01:18:08--> 01:18:09

something to your brother?

01:18:10--> 01:18:18

Or the if I haven't done, I've done so what kind of isn't the responsibility more by the days? Because I have it.

01:18:20--> 01:18:29

But am I holding on to it? I'm not giving it isn't? It's a. So there's a balance, last one that I think is gonna keep us responsible.

01:18:31--> 01:18:34

But I can't answer your question with it. I can't say we're going to go to Jana.

01:18:36--> 01:18:54

Because we really don't know, actually. I mean, you might see 10 people in front of you, the more you'll be surprised all of them maybe white in Africa, maybe five of them are Muslim, you don't know. Maybe two of them are Muslim, you don't know until you interact with them, to speak to them. And rabbit many people I thought were not Muslim. Every citizen

01:18:55--> 01:19:06

actually a Muslim, is more passionate about Islam than what I have you ever come across that we meet maybe somebody who says Wow, this man is a European man who is a black man with.

01:19:12--> 01:19:25

So yeah, maybe people look at you and say maybe he's not a Muslim, or whatever. So our job is not to worry about the big, the macro environment. Our job is to worry about what I can do.

01:19:26--> 01:19:36

Things that I see around me the little things that I see around me, what can I change, I'm going to bring about a better a better

01:19:37--> 01:19:45

environment. Islam is not just to make people Muslim. Islam is to make people Muslim, to make the world a better place.

01:19:46--> 01:19:50

Because if he becomes abusive, he stops drinking. So no more drunken driving.

01:19:52--> 01:19:54

Just one thing, or the other things you will leave.

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

So you improving the world. Just by making a person will see me play

01:20:01--> 01:20:07

Sorry, I can't answer the question directly. I'm not capable of answering the question of who goes to john doe? Yes.

01:20:11--> 01:20:12

Yes.

01:20:19--> 01:20:20

So that's a project we'll take.

01:20:23--> 01:20:29

I have literature, I have literature that that can be translated very good literature is written by people, you see.

01:20:32--> 01:20:33

Actually, all the work has already been done.

01:20:35--> 01:20:38

We just need to revive what has been done.

01:20:39--> 01:21:18

You go on the internet, everything is there, people have written the best kind of pamphlets on Islam, all we need to do is to revive it, to repress it. And to go out there. And to actually help people personally want to ask you a question with a median of what is the pamphlet? Well, you will see it for what is the pamphlet? And you know what I mean, that kind of thing? or What is this pamphlet about? That is what is now required. But it's all the so as I said, you know, if you come together for yourself into a group of three or five people to say, look, we would like to do this, you know, we would like to, to do this kind of thing. Let's get together. I can even say the 80s

01:21:18--> 01:21:38

ever translated into by an African, Canadian, find someone who can translate even in a lot of Afrikaners on our Muslim, to tap into them and say, Please translate as far as put on, get the website up and going. Put the websites on there. People can go there, you can ask questions on there. You'll be surprised you know, it could it could trigger

01:21:39--> 01:21:47

could revitalize I mean, I know for a fact that half my family when they came from India to marry Afrikaners it was nobody else to marry.

01:21:48--> 01:21:55

I mean, I've got bosmans in my family from you know, three and I'm sure if you look at as you can see,

01:21:56--> 01:22:01

so, and they became the best Muslims, but somewhere along the line that conversion just stopped.

01:22:03--> 01:22:09

So why can we not have advantages will save you become Muslim, of course, and I can already think of a lot of advantages.

01:22:12--> 01:22:35

But that is what we should do. I think that is one. And it can be done by lots of groups. I mean, there are lots of places in South Africa. Now this Durban is Joburg, this Port Elizabeth is so many things that you really take you you go for holidays, for example, you die with your cars, I'm gonna take a drive to jump all the way along the way this guy throws do is fine. No, I'm done.

01:22:38--> 01:22:42

We keep it one day is gonna take it out and he's gonna read it. And it's so simple.

01:22:43--> 01:22:49

To preach to people, you do that? Right? Once you have an internet address, people use the internet, they use it.

01:22:52--> 01:22:58

So, level of effort, we can change the world. 45 people change the world

01:22:59--> 01:23:07

14 and a half 1000 to 15,000 years ago 45 people change the whole world. We are what 2 billion people

01:23:09--> 01:23:12

in the world, we can make a difference. Each of us does something

01:23:13--> 01:23:17

channeled our wealth in the right direction. Very important. Most important thing is not to waste your money.

01:23:19--> 01:23:22

Not to give conscience money. So I feel sorry, you know so i give

01:23:24--> 01:23:48

us your wealth effectively. And pull your wealth effect don't say well, I wish I can give a lot. Can you you say to your your your poor brother. I've got 5000 and you only get five grand? Put it Yeah, we put it together. Let's put all together. Let's accumulators make it big. They didn't grow, let it grow, let it grow, make it into 50 million 100 million. And under this I will call old money

01:23:50--> 01:23:55

and will also earn own off of Athlone and off of Cape Town and

01:23:57--> 01:24:12

why not? Why can't we do this? How can we do this as families? Why? So why is it always about me and my money and what I can give? Why don't you bring other people into the circle and say fine. It's where you fall into the circle. Let's see what we can do together as a family was friends.

01:24:13--> 01:24:17

Women as well. Young girls, young women, housewives.

01:24:32--> 01:24:32

Good.

01:24:38--> 01:24:46

Let me explain again, maybe with people who weren't here last week, I said that in the time that Ibiza lab, there was only one other IDE for Java

01:24:48--> 01:24:52

which was there is a sunken heart of results under the Mima and that was made

01:24:55--> 01:25:00

in North man the city expanded more people have asthma

01:25:00--> 01:25:06

sent us into the marketplace to make a dent in the marketplace that wasn't made in the masjid.

01:25:08--> 01:25:09

Okay, not that

01:25:11--> 01:25:19

widely to remind the people in the marketplace and shortly Juma will be performed because people in their watchers say so people have to be reminded.

01:25:21--> 01:25:27

We have a situation now where everyone's gonna watch they know what time is tomorrow. So in fact that other two following

01:25:29--> 01:25:53

actually four completely away, only a damage will be done is there then at the time of Juma but let's assume the magic makes it like we make that as an awesome idea than at half past 12. I've also said that because Nagisa Salam came straight onto the member salatu salam, he did not make to Raka Suna before the Salah of Juma

01:25:54--> 01:26:00

so the brother wants to know so what is the value of making to the counselor before the walked off

01:26:02--> 01:26:03

after the first other

01:26:06--> 01:26:07

after the counselor

01:26:11--> 01:26:15

well we're not talking about the two signals after this is to record soon after tomorrow.

01:26:16--> 01:26:28

But the two records before as I said it is not Salah attached to the Salah of Juma so you can lean away to Sally sooner the Salatu Juma regatta Nicoletta that doesn't exist.

01:26:29--> 01:26:38

That doesn't exist. There doesn't exist. But if you want to make telecasts you can make to recast and Leanna way too sorry, Sandra cottony light on.

01:26:39--> 01:26:42

But regarding ledger, it's a it's an ordinary

01:26:43--> 01:26:48

if you want to make it if you don't want to make it is a salon you?

01:26:51--> 01:26:59

And why? Why can you not make it? Why is it not calculated for Juma? Why can it not be because that is given before the work of the world.

01:27:02--> 01:27:08

And you can't make Salah of a of a of a walk, you can't make two records of your office 12

01:27:09--> 01:27:12

you can't you have to wait to lock this in, isn't it?

01:27:13--> 01:27:20

So if we make around the office 12 to October is not in yet. So you can't make sooner salovaara complete and you can't.

01:27:21--> 01:27:26

Therefore what is required is either you sit quietly and make the could or you get up and you make

01:27:27--> 01:27:31

Torah kasana of course Allah reward you greatly.

01:27:32--> 01:27:34

Or you can leave it as the HA

01:27:35--> 01:27:36

HA can be made right up to

01:27:38--> 01:27:39

the octave.

01:27:40--> 01:27:40

Yeah.

01:27:42--> 01:27:45

So your feature is meant to harm actor aka Should I make

01:27:46--> 01:27:54

the gorilla but it just that we should be clear on the Salah of Juma Andy. So let's connect it to Serato.

01:28:04--> 01:28:05

In Indonesia

01:28:19--> 01:28:19

Yes.

01:28:21--> 01:28:21

That's correct.

01:28:28--> 01:28:28

Yes.

01:28:32--> 01:28:51

Yes. What Brandon is saying is that these reports coming out of Indonesia is that people are becoming leaving Islam. And in Europe, it's the opposite. Again, the reports coming today is that Europe will be Muslim in so many so many years time and Mashallah, we should all sit back and relax.

01:28:53--> 01:28:58

I'm very wary of statistics. I'm very wary when statistics come from the west.

01:29:02--> 01:29:04

I'm very wary also because it's this.

01:29:06--> 01:29:07

The statistics tell us that we must

01:29:09--> 01:29:18

relax. Because that's what the European statistics tell us that all Muslims don't worry about Islam. Europe is going to be Muslim in 50 years time.

01:29:20--> 01:29:36

But if you look at the reality, it's not the Europeans religions it became Muslim. It's the Muslim immigrants whose birth rates are so high that they outnumber the local population in all the European countries.

01:29:38--> 01:29:44

I mean, we know for a fact, the right wing anti muslim parties

01:29:45--> 01:29:50

are getting more and more votes in every single European nation.

01:29:52--> 01:29:53

So what does that tell you

01:29:55--> 01:29:59

about the attitude of the indigenous peoples of Europe towards Islam

01:30:00--> 01:30:07

I'm not saying that indigenous Europeans are not accepting Islam. I'm saying we're not accepting Islam in the millions.

01:30:09--> 01:30:09

That is

01:30:11--> 01:30:13

given to us to believe.

01:30:17--> 01:30:17

Yes.

01:30:21--> 01:30:24

Yes. Generally slump is

01:30:30--> 01:30:39

yes, in general Islam I mean, you know, generally soft gives a very good impression of people who are converting to Islam. But there are 6 billion people on the planet.

01:30:40--> 01:30:41

And

01:30:43--> 01:30:46

we are 2 billion. So this is all 4 billion to go.

01:30:48--> 01:30:48

Java.

01:30:50--> 01:30:56

But hopefully the the 4 billion that's going to come will be better than the 2 million 2 billion that's that's really the average.

01:30:58--> 01:31:01

But here's the reason there is an increasing interest

01:31:02--> 01:31:08

in Islam, all over the world. But you know, ultimately it depends on

01:31:09--> 01:31:30

how we practice our Islam as Muslims as both Muslims and as Muslim people look at examples we want to see you know, what a Muslim is doing. Allah gives you direct directly to people but alongside those it's also expects us to do what we have to do. That's what I'm saying. Africa we have the same situation. Africa, Muslim numbers are declining in Africa.

01:31:32--> 01:31:44

I mean, that is a fact I just read an article the other day about numbers that the other is concerned about the declining numbers of Muslims in Africa to know the SAR

01:31:47--> 01:31:56

So again, I you know, I say what I've said, I mean 1015 years ago, yet this much in other budgets that we still not part of Africa.

01:31:58--> 01:32:21

Cape Town, Muslims is still not part of Africa. I'm not going to give the same impression of Muslims in the town and Townsville. I think they've done much more than we have. But we still think we part of Indonesia, are we part of the cape colored community? Are we just part of Cape Town and it's step by Table Mountain? We still have this and from here we go to Joburg, Jeddah, Jeddah Joburg, Cape Town.

01:32:23--> 01:33:04

I mean, people in Transvaal are going into Mozambique, they're going into the you know, all the African countries are going there you know, begging vow giving down we're not doing that we're not doing that so kitaen Muslims need to break out of the cocoon that we in we living in a bit of quite a cocoon we know this I mean, I've been in this kind of greedy for too long to know that we haven't really broken out of Cape Town become an international force which we can become and that's because we have we have the we have the skills and we have the money we've cut everything but the theater we don't have we need the hero the hero the zeal, passion, that that's what we we need each other.

01:33:10--> 01:33:19

Down woman is doing great work in the towel i know i mean in the kwazulu Natal arena. But again you know Islam is not an institution.

01:33:20--> 01:33:38

With with it's one institution even though every Muslim is a die, you know everyone when people look at you they say Mashallah, this European man is a Muslim Mashallah then you can say, Well, he's a geologist, we should look into maybe also following Him and you know, this is the example that you sit for people and everybody else.

01:33:39--> 01:33:49

And that is how the Sahaba used to bring people into into the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. By the examples they said by who they were, what they did, also.

01:33:54--> 01:33:55

So inshallah we know.

01:33:58--> 01:34:01

You don't look as if you want to go anyway, but I certainly want to see

01:34:04--> 01:34:05

if I

01:34:06--> 01:34:07

have the reliability

01:34:14--> 01:34:15

Salatu was salam, or I should

01:34:16--> 01:34:22

say, Deena, whenever you know Maulana Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on Earth, he was a visionary.

01:34:24--> 01:34:35

A lot of rubbernecker have Luca Maria Marie legionary Chica Ali misophonic like I haven't given her an email man. Can habitable Islam. Al Hamdulillah
