Salam Alaikum

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

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim

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


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

said the one La Ilaha Illa la who should ecola

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

showed the unknown Mohammed on up to one a tsunami.

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

Brothers and sisters

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

one day

00:00:48--> 00:00:50

a good friend of mine

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

well known to you

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

the great

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

Muhammad Ali

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

was on a plane

00:01:06--> 00:01:09

and the flight attendant said

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

Mr. Muhammad Ali

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

please put on your seatbelt

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

he said

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

Superman No need no seatbelt

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

she looked at him and said Superman only no plane.

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

So he put on the seatbelt.

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

I must admit to you tonight that I'm conflicted.

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

On the one hand, I've been away so long.

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

I am tempted

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

to keep you here tonight past midnight.

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

For real

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

but my sensibilities tell me

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

that you have been well taught

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

It's been a long night.

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

So therefore I'll say a few words.

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

Immediately My question

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

is this.

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

These are Emma

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

these leaders that you heard tonight

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

there is a danger

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

The danger is this.

00:02:50--> 00:02:54

Alliance the question of finance available.

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

So when you go

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

the danger is after receiving all of this knowledge.

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

What are we gonna do?

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

When you leave here tonight, where you go

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


00:03:25--> 00:03:26


00:03:27--> 00:03:30

inni outbreaker min l Min lejana fo

00:03:32--> 00:03:39

e sulla salam, O Allah, I seek refuge which you for knowledge that doesn't benefit.

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

How dare you sit here

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

hour after hour after hour with all of that wisdom, all of that knowledge.

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

And then what?

00:03:57--> 00:04:05

One of my teachers in 1978 in Mecca, Shaikh Hussain Hamad Hasson

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

taught us the meaning of scholarship

00:04:10--> 00:04:13

every question we asked them

00:04:15--> 00:04:18

he will give us this answer we have three opinions.

00:04:20--> 00:04:29

mm ashmit even Hanbal has this opinion based on this evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:04:31--> 00:04:39

Malik has a different answer. With this evidence. Imam Abu hanifa has another ends

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

and he taught us the meaning of scholarship.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

My teacher started every class the same way. So Hanukkah law in Mallanna Illa Allah in the Quran Salah limit Hakeem, Glory be to You. Oh Allah, we have no now.

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

Except for what you have given to us, you are law of the knowing and the wise.

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

There's a danger tonight

00:05:13--> 00:05:28

all of this knowledge upon knowledge upon knowledge, and we will get up tonight we will walk out of here we go back home. And the question is, will we go back the same way as before we came in,

00:05:35--> 00:05:42

might I show you expect to call that took place, sometime in the history of man.

00:05:46--> 00:05:55

Our illustrious shake, spoke about the angels, I want you to look at this spectacle that took place at some time in human history.

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

Allah says like this,

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

such as del mundo a go to

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

Hulu match my own.

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

And therefore

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

all of the angels,

00:06:16--> 00:06:21

every one of them them, frustrated.

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

How many angels are there?

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

And calculable

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

can count

00:06:35--> 00:06:49

for at one time in the entire universe, every Angel without one exception, at the same time, bowed down to the one that Allah created

00:06:52--> 00:06:54

all over the universe.

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

Not one of them disobeyed Allah.

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

And they all frustrated

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

but there was a jinn

00:07:08--> 00:07:11

name a police one gin

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

boom tempted to do

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

but I'm gonna leave you with a thought

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

00:10:57--> 00:10:57

and you

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

You too

about who we are

00:11:19--> 00:11:25

and you can't talk about who we are until you first talk about who Allah is. You heard that tonight

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

one verse from the Quran to consider.

00:11:31--> 00:11:37

Ma'am and button fill out the Illa Allah louder school where

00:11:39--> 00:11:50

there is not one animal on this earth except Allah has taken upon himself to give it a sustenance.

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

Might I take one animal?

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

Shake minson mentioned the wheel.

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

What about the wheel

00:12:06--> 00:12:09

100 feet long,

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

weighing 200 tons

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

with the tongue, the size of an elephant

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

and the heart the size of an automobile

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

living at 80 years

00:12:28--> 00:12:34

in this huge blue whale eats every day.

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

And what does it eat?

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

A little shrimp like animal called quail.

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

How much

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

does it eat?

00:12:54--> 00:12:59

40 million trail a day

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

for tons

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

and eats.

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

Can you imagine you as a human being? have to eat the same food every day?

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

Yes, the shake said Allah has honored us.

00:13:20--> 00:13:31

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

00:13:32--> 00:13:37

say, I am only a human being just like you

00:13:39--> 00:13:49

saw on the one hand, we could say we only human. Or on another hand, an angel can say in the Mahayana manual.

00:13:51--> 00:13:58

I am only an angel. Because there are things that we have. That's a little bit different.

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

Can you give me five more minutes?

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

check a few hours.

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

Now when I go a few hours you know who to blame?

00:14:13--> 00:14:18

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

00:14:24--> 00:14:31

00:14:33--> 00:14:38

a lot of subjective for you everything in the heavens on earth to shake set it

00:14:40--> 00:14:49

so that means you got to start looking around and say what did a lot? What did he do for me as a human being? Don't give me one example.

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

Do you know that

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

dogs have a sense of smell millions of times more sensitive than

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

Human beings, they are now training dogs to smell the breath of men to determine if they have cancer.

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

Check I want to your country Australia.

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

And I landed in the airport, by the way on let you know this, I love Australia

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

as one of the countries I can live there.

00:15:25--> 00:15:32

And when you land in Australia in the airport, there's a sign saying, warning, you may not want to go back home

00:15:33--> 00:15:38

for real. So I'm gonna let you know I love you, I love you. And I love the country.

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

So, me and my wife, we get to the airport, right?

00:15:44--> 00:15:48

And we go down to the luggage, go get our luggage.

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

And there was a security man with a dog.

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

And you know, they were smelling the luggage.

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

And they started smelling my wife's luggage.

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

nanodot looking for one of three things.

00:16:10--> 00:16:14

Either for drugs. So I started looking at my wife

00:16:19--> 00:16:23

or explosives. I started walking away from my wife

00:16:27--> 00:16:28

looking for food.

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

And yes, she had in her luggage. Food.

00:16:38--> 00:16:44

We are so blessed as human beings. So honored by Allah.

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

But this is the question.

00:16:49--> 00:16:50


00:16:51--> 00:16:52

have the best

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

shake. Shadi mentioned

00:16:59--> 00:17:05

you the best. But I want to know what you're gonna do when you leave here.

00:17:07--> 00:17:11

The Muslim there, you got 2 billion Christians on this earth.

00:17:12--> 00:17:25

1.6 billion Muslims 950 million Hindu 450 million Buddhists. In fact, 15,000 Jews.

00:17:26--> 00:17:44

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

00:17:46--> 00:17:54

the number of people who claim to be Christians in the last generation has decreased by 11%.

00:17:57--> 00:18:06

The Jews the report went on to say, show a steady decrease while the number of Muslims have doubled in the last generation.

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

Moscow right now Moscow.

00:18:12--> 00:18:19

They're building a Masjid in Moscow right now that will accommodate 16,000 worshippers.

00:18:20--> 00:18:32

Every way you go on this planet is the sign of the growth of the Muslims in France 10% of the population Muslim

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

mosque gap between 10 and 15% of the people Muslim

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

Rama concern about that.

00:18:44--> 00:18:48

I'm concerned about three of what are we

00:18:49--> 00:18:53

a young sister comes to my office I hadn't seen in years.

00:18:55--> 00:18:59

And know how from a young child she's 20 something years old now what a baby.

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

Sorry, Mama, I just had to come see you.

00:19:06--> 00:19:12

And then before she left, I asked what about the dean? What about you is what about Islam?

00:19:14--> 00:19:20

She's an Amanda Baqarah lie to you. She said I'll be honest, I'm not making prayer

00:19:21--> 00:19:33

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.

00:19:34--> 00:19:42

And I want to know what is a non practicing Muslim and non practicing Muslim is an oxymoron.

00:19:43--> 00:19:48

Because by nature, a Muslim is a practitioner of the faith.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

And we make faith like is something cheap. Why is fast and I'm not pray. But I'm a believer. No

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


00:20:01--> 00:20:12

listen the way a Lawson kurang kollective arrabal Amanda coolum to me no balakian kulu Islam Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah manzi. lubicon.

00:20:14--> 00:20:46

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.

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

Listen to the Quran or Yama kiama

00:20:52--> 00:21:06

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.

00:21:08--> 00:21:11

Right. We will not have those who kept up real

00:21:13--> 00:21:19

soon my conclusion. So email what what are you saying? I'm saying this.

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

When you leave here you got to do something

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

I laid before you

00:21:28--> 00:21:29


00:21:31--> 00:21:32

all the things that he said.

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

And yet he's Kaffir.

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

That's the teachers

00:21:40--> 00:21:48

that Eman and faith in Allah is more than may acknowledgement.

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

satanic knowledge.

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

But he's not a believer.

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

I'm saying to you brothers and sisters.

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

Things be too long. Tonight. You can

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

check Shadi I applaud you for coming in.

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

But now we want to do one more thing.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

We have a big job to do here.

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

In the in the kingdom.

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

My argument isn't

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

all of those Katherine's

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

because you think

00:22:30--> 00:22:34

that a Kaffir is one who doesn't know about Islam?

00:22:36--> 00:22:46

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

00:22:47--> 00:23:07

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.

00:23:09--> 00:23:17

Like the moon, Oh ALLAH forgive my people because they don't know.

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

Our job.

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

I want to thank two people

00:23:26--> 00:23:27

first and hikma

00:23:28--> 00:23:43

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.

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

Number two, thank you.

00:23:48--> 00:23:50

Let me tell you why.

00:23:51--> 00:24:00

Allah the Almighty Susan Qur'an, Colorado, como esta diblock home. And your Lord said call upon me and our answer you a

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

few years ago, you learned that I had cancer, prostate cancer.

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

And I heard that so many of you made

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

so many of you.

00:24:13--> 00:24:23

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.

00:24:25--> 00:24:44

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

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

that's gonna propel you to make you better.

00:24:49--> 00:24:57

In my last word of admonition is the work of Al hikmah. And brothers and sisters like that

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

who call

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

Invite the people to the dean. That's our job.

00:25:06--> 00:25:15

That's our job. Allah bless you to do it. Thank you for such patience with us tonight. Salaam Alaikum.
