and you can't talk about who we are until you first talk about who Allah is. You heard that tonight
one verse from the Quran to consider.
Ma'am and button fill out the Illa Allah louder school where
there is not one animal on this earth except Allah has taken upon himself to give it a sustenance.
Might I take one animal?
Shake minson mentioned the wheel.
What about the wheel

and the heart the size of an automobile

in this huge blue whale eats every day.
And what does it eat?
A little shrimp like animal called quail.
does it eat?
40 million trail a day
Can you imagine you as a human being? have to eat the same food every day?
Yes, the shake said Allah has honored us.
The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said in the Mahayana Bashar Dini, I'm only human. I'm only human. Why did he say that? Because Allah ordered them to say cool in them and
say, I am only a human being just like you
saw on the one hand, we could say we only human. Or on another hand, an angel can say in the Mahayana manual.
I am only an angel. Because there are things that we have. That's a little bit different.

Trying to give you an out. Take it think about this for a moment.

But this is the question.
have the best
shake. Shadi mentioned

The Muslim there, you got 2 billion Christians on this earth.
1.6 billion Muslims 950 million Hindu 450 million Buddhists. In fact, 15,000 Jews.
Our numbers are growing in unbelievable ways. There was a report two years ago, entitled faith is shifting, drifting or vanishing outright. And that report said that in the United States
the number of people who claim to be Christians in the last generation has decreased by 11%.
The Jews the report went on to say, show a steady decrease while the number of Muslims have doubled in the last generation.
Moscow right now Moscow.
They're building a Masjid in Moscow right now that will accommodate 16,000 worshippers.
Every way you go on this planet is the sign of the growth of the Muslims in France 10% of the population Muslim
mosque gap between 10 and 15% of the people Muslim
Rama concern about that.
I'm concerned about three of what are we
a young sister comes to my office I hadn't seen in years.
And know how from a young child she's 20 something years old now what a baby.
Sorry, Mama, I just had to come see you.
And then before she left, I asked what about the dean? What about you is what about Islam?
She's an Amanda Baqarah lie to you. She said I'll be honest, I'm not making prayer
around fast in the month of Ramadan. But I believe and I hear this over and over and over again that I am a non practicing Muslim.
And I want to know what is a non practicing Muslim and non practicing Muslim is an oxymoron.
Because by nature, a Muslim is a practitioner of the faith.
And we make faith like is something cheap. Why is fast and I'm not pray. But I'm a believer. No
listen the way a Lawson kurang kollective arrabal Amanda coolum to me no balakian kulu Islam Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah manzi. lubicon.
The desert Arab say we believes and no, no, no, no, no, no. Say that you do not believe Allah revealed it to the Prophet tell him you don't believe, but you have accepted but faith has not yet into jihad. So that is the teachers there are some people even making prayer. There are not really believers. But I've never read anywhere a shower head shakes book correct me where you don't know prayer. You don't do not a bad day in your believer.
Listen to the Quran or Yama kiama
the people of Gen X the people in hell Metallica config soccer. What has gotten you there? And the first thing they will say lahmacun lam naku minima Selena.
Right. We will not have those who kept up real
soon my conclusion. So email what what are you saying? I'm saying this.
When you leave here you got to do something
I laid before you
all the things that he said.
And yet he's Kaffir.
That's the teachers
that Eman and faith in Allah is more than may acknowledgement.
But he's not a believer.
I'm saying to you brothers and sisters.
Things be too long. Tonight. You can
check Shadi I applaud you for coming in.
But now we want to do one more thing.
We have a big job to do here.
In the in the kingdom.
My argument isn't
all of those Katherine's
because you think
that a Kaffir is one who doesn't know about Islam?
I would argue that a Kaffir does know about Islam, and they reject the faith. Let me give you one example. And then I close
our illustrious Prophet Mohammed Elisa that was allowed to talk about a prophet that was beaten by the people so much that he begin to bleed and he wipe the blood from his face. And the Prophet said, Allah whom Excel Tell me for now.
Like the moon, Oh ALLAH forgive my people because they don't know.
I want to thank two people
first and hikma
number one for having this forum, having these wonderful scholars and teachers before us and to have invited me and I am very thankful to you for that.
Number two, thank you.
Let me tell you why.
Allah the Almighty Susan Qur'an, Colorado, como esta diblock home. And your Lord said call upon me and our answer you a
few years ago, you learned that I had cancer, prostate cancer.
And I heard that so many of you made
so many of you.
I want to thank you that Allah answered your prayers, and gave extended life to your brother Imam Suraj so that I can come here and harass you some more.
So I want to thank every one of you for every dollar that you made, those who even donated some money and all of that I am so humbled by it, and so thankful to allow for you and make the app for every one of you who came tonight that you get something
that's gonna propel you to make you better.
In my last word of admonition is the work of Al hikmah. And brothers and sisters like that
Invite the people to the dean. That's our job.
That's our job. Allah bless you to do it. Thank you for such patience with us tonight. Salaam Alaikum.
