Sheikh Tawfique Chowdhury visited Al Huda Intl. Islamabad Pakistan . During his visit he delivered a talk about The ways to behave and handle the difficult situations.
I'm sure all of you were really inspired by the story just shared with us by Sheikh
Abdullah. This is not the end of the session. We have another great speaker with us today. And you already know him very well. Alhamdulillah he's been here quite a few times. He's chairman of mercy mission, Xi tawfeeq chaudry alumni, a very well known name in Pakistan, in Malaysia all across the world. His organization has been working in different parts of the world. And recently about a year or two backs stablished its campuses here in Pakistan as well. You might remember him from the last strings of faith conference that happened in Islamic in Karachi last year, and Alhamdulillah is going to take place this year as well in Lahore. Tomorrow, inshallah, so Alhamdulillah we have our
next shake with us, so I won't take much much of his time. Introducing Chef tawfik shortly.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
My dearest brothers, my sisters in Islam,
you're all aware of the recent
fitna that has, unfortunately been spread about this beautiful Institute alhuda.
And I know that a lot of us are trying to deal with this problem in many ways. Some of us will hamdulillah those that are responsible. The chairman, the organizers, the managers, the executive team of this organization, martial arts Baraka, they have their hands full at the moment, speaking to the media, and speaking good, at the same time, the students will hamdulillah worldwide. I have found well hamdulillah following some amazing behavior, and protocol, which I don't know if it even exists, but because of your therapy upon the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim. It's almost second nature, which is to deal with this fitna with forbearance and with a lot of
gentleness, not to have angry statements into the media, or to make any angry statements to any Muslim or non Muslim that has wrong thoughts about this beautiful Institute.
But Alhamdulillah what I've seen is amazing stuff.
But what I wanted to share with you in sha Allah tala four points of advice, that I think is important at points like this and at forks in history like this, so that whenever such situations strike us in the future, we are ready and well prepared in the authentic narration. In Sahih Muslim, it was reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that the last hour will not come until the Roman Romans are the largest number.
So one of the Sahaba did not agree or did not understand this Hadith of the last rhodiola Lando
and so the Sahaba, who narrated it said, well, Lucha herder Sula, some saying, saying this, at that point, I'm above the law said, If that is so, then I have lived amongst these people. The reason why the Romans will be the largest number he mentioned four things amongst the four things you mentioned one important point. And that important point is is that upon calamity, therefore bearing upon calamity, they are forbearing. What does it mean? means when disaster trials difficulty hardship strikes them, they don't react immediately. They don't lose hope immediately. They don't blurt out angry words immediately. They don't react immediately. They respond slowly, or they look at the
whole situation evaluated from all different ways. And then they respond in the most gentle and softest ways. And this is something we definitely notice about the non Muslims, don't we? We noticed that when
the incidents in London happened in seven, seven.
In London, when there were some bombs that were blown up in the subway, we saw how they responded Initially, it was quite gentle. It was trying to calm the situation, trying to find out who's, who's guilty, who's not, etc. And then they responded. In fact, the total opposite happened with the Muslim mean. So my brothers, my sisters in Islam, the first advice I have for you all,
is in times of calamity, deal with calamity with forbearance. Perhaps it is from the nature of women to do so.
Perhaps, actually, it may not be from the nature women to do so. But it actually is from the nature of righteous women to do so. Because this is this is indeed what we find.
Or I have found in my own school, where the kids memorize the Quran, it is as if a cloud of peace and tranquility has descended on the school because of them reciting Quran. It is almost like Sakina that's the only word that comes to my mind, that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives Sakina to the hearts and strength, in the in the words when you recite his words, and Allah comes and pulls down the anger in your body. So therefore remember the greatest of emotions, the worst of emotions that you can have is anger.
And only in a small amount of thing, anger is good, and that is anger for law. But other than that anger is one of the worst of of, of emotions. It's the thing that leads to hastiness, when hastiness is the one that is hated but loves the one accepting the three things you know, the Hadith Rasulullah, Salah, anger and this evil of anger. If we can try to read this read this oma of it will hamdulillah then we will be able to address the trials and tribulations that come upon us. And when hamdulillah there will always be trials and tribulations we will be able to address it. So my sisters in Islam remember the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam which is to
Abdullah Ash Ash jack were the prophets of Salaam said in Africa hustle attain you hate Bahama la hora solo? Verily with you is two qualities which allied is messenger loves, and that is forbearance and gentleness, forbearance and gentleness. So a noble yourself with these two qualities in Sharla and you will find
you will find that the one who hates you who is angry about you who doesn't understand you will suddenly become your best friend insofar ability arson, for either lady by Nicola Bina who otherwise
would have been
always repelled by that which is better, and you will find that the one between whom you and them is anger and hatred will become as if you are the bosom friends or closest of friends. So this is the rule we must remember now. This is a rule we must remember now we must repel this fitna with gentleness and calmness, gentleness and calmness. So if you find someone out there that is angry, because all the girls are wearing niqab. For example. explain to them why. Why are you wearing niqab? Explain what is the purpose of it? It is not so that you become an extremist. It is a trial upon YouTube. It is a trial it was noted. Once that I shot a deal Atlanta saw a couple of women
crossing in front of her house and they were not wearing Hijab or niqab and they were full, full, fully decked out as we say in Australia full decked out, you know, full makeup. So what did she say? She said to them, enjoy it for you. It is in this dunya for us in the Acura meaning this hijab is a test. It's a test from Allah azza wa jal. So we are wearing this hijab not because the hijab is restricting us but no because Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed it as a test. And because men are a different character, and women are of different character, women are gentle beasts men are sexual beasts. And as a result, Allah has obliged upon women to protect themselves for themselves and for
the betterment of their of their male male compatriots. So explain to them why you do so explain yourself with gentleness and softness and forbearing that's number one. The second advice I have for you, is I want you to at times like this, when this beautiful organization and its teachings are being questioned, I want you to go out there and speak about the value of human beings, the value of preserving life, the value of life itself, you should be speaking about this you need to go out there and push it out on social media, on media, to your families, to your friends, to anyone who asks you so that you you glorify and you exemplify the mercy of Islam. I want to tell you about a
few things that I learned about this and a few things that perhaps I will remind you of that you can inshallah share with them number one, first and once you to be reminded of is that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down Mohammed salah and the one thing about this man will have
Mr. Selim was that he was a messenger of mercy. Everything about him was mercy, his luck, his mannerism, everything was mercy. In fact, when the angel of the two mountains were sent down after the Prophet sesamum came back from from tarrif was sent down in order to destroy MK x chabane. We're actually the two mountains around Makkah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down this, this angel with jabril and jabril said Surah molokhia. Mohammed Salim, here is the angel of the two mountains Allah has heard your your your your da and Allah has sent you you this angel and the angel said, yo Mohammed says Salam Alaikum tell me what to do if you want our crush them between the two mountains.
What did Mohammed Salim say? He said, rather I wish they will come when Allah will bring out of their loins, people who will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and of course will hamdulillah you know that now because of the of the Prophet system which he could have, at that point destroyed Makkah and taken over all, all affairs, he chose mercy over anything else. Not only was he merciful to his enemies, it was not it wasn't it was narrated that on the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the day that he forgave the most people
that has ever wronged him and wronged any believer was on the day that he had the strongest ability to destroy them.
The day in which He forgive the most was the day when he had the biggest strength to kill them all. Which day was that? The day of the Fatah maka, the day of Fatoumata, when the Prophet says Salaam should have entered Makkah, should have entered Makkah, with his head raised up high as a mighty conqueror of Makkah, because he has been struggling to fight these people for 22 years in the mind, deer hegira he walks in with his head humbled until they said his head was touching, touching the back of the of the horse humbled. Why, because he's humbling himself in front of the Lord of the worlds, Allah subhanho wa Taala would give him one hour in order to conquer Makkah. And any other
time when anyone tried to do any other facade in Makkah, Allah would destroy them, even if it'd be with a babied from the summer. So, you know, my brothers and my sisters in Islam and my brothers of Islam, Mohammed Salim on that day, anyone, he made it a rule anyone who gives safety to a disbeliever in their house, then he has safety. And he did not kill except a few individuals. And those individuals were the worst of the people who deserve to be killed. There were war criminals, people who had tortured innocence and killed children and women. These people do not deserve to live. And they were the only ones that were killed. But every single person even the people who
killed his own uncle and ate his own uncle's liver, hint, Ravi alota Anna Can you imagine? Even the leaders of the battle Lex Abu sufian were given a man were given safety Can you imagine that? such as Mohammed Salah the man of peace and not only was he a man of peace and a man of mercy to human beings but also to animals? I remember I was in the house of worship by the name of Abdullah to add Rahim Allah His father was Abdullah to add son's name is also Abdullah to add Mashallah, Mashallah best of names Sheikh Abdullah to add is a very rich man so I used to go there sometimes to his house, you know, wanted to get some money for some of the students of Medina University at that
time. Once I went to Shaykh Abdullah to add Mashallah. And I went to his books book room, I want to tell you, this is so amazing, went to his book room, and I found his book room was as wide as probably this beautiful Hall. And he had 1000s of manuscripts 1000s of books, and I saw him writing something essentially, what are you doing is that I'm writing a new book. So what's the book on? He said, The book is on compiling all of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam about his mercy to animals. So what I mean there's only about two or three of these that I can think of. He said, No, I have compiled and he's gone through Mata Mata Bharani, which is eight large thick volumes like this.
The print I have in my house is eight large thick volumes. He said, I have found over 2700 Hadith about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his mercy to animals. And he went on and on and on. He gave me a Hadith of the Haditha has an authentic about how the prophet SAW Selim was merciful to animals. I mean, you know, this is the messenger of mercy, messenger of mercy, there's no way this messenger could have brought the message of destruction and death that they say today. So what you must do today, my sister's Islam. The second thing you need to do is to go out there and talk about his message of mercy. I mean, you just have to have a cursory Look at his message and you will
find enough they are spreading far too.
Many lies about him being a warning prophet. Yes, he but he battled, he battles 19 times. He traveled 36 months in jihad. He had 19 battles that he fought, he would have fought even more had he not other responsibilities that he needed to look after in Medina. However, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every single one of them was a battle that he did in order to defend Islam or to defend the weak and the and the and and the destitute and poor amongst them.
He did not seek pride, he did not see Kingdom he did not seek any of that. He did it in defense of Islam. And so my brothers and sisters in Islam, go out there and push this message out about Mohammed Salah Salem and his message of mercy. Also know this, that Islam itself, Allah subhanho wa Taala has put in it so many messages about being merciful to human beings. So we find Allah subhanho wa Taala says Min edgerly De Luca Katana Allah Bani Israel Isla and the human capital enough sand below it enough sin, our facade and fill out the *a Anima katella NASA Jamie, a woman Ah ha ha. nama NASA Jamie. And so here the scholars that have seen me Allah have mercy upon them said, woman,
meaning whoever helps in putting, ensuring life continues for a human being.
Whoever helps in ensuring that life continues for human being, meaning not only at the point of death, saving them, but also ensuring that someone who is alive that the life continues, then that is a person who has a ha ha. And that is a person that has kept a soul alive. For
me, that is a person that has as if it has, he has looked after all of humanity. This is the nobility of a doctor. This is the nobility of a firefighter. This is the nobility of a police man. This is an ability of a soldier that defends Muslims and innocent people from harm. This is not just a doctor. This is why one of the things we must also do perhaps in this institute might might be a good idea is not only to talk about oh how great doctors are, you know, with all due respect, we have enough praise. Thank you.
Doctors get enough praise but talk about those that feel essential services that human beings need police officers, for example, yes, yes or no? Right? I mean after Allah subhanho wa Taala if it were not for police officers, a lot of us would be in a lot of trouble.
If it wasn't for Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala wasn't for fire fighters, how many of our loved ones would die if it wasn't for Allah subhanho wa Taala and then for example, the military and just their presence is a deterrence from war from happening. Imagine if they were absent, how many wars would happen, how the enemies or people would just come across right. So, all of this man,
NASA Jamia? It is as if Allah it is as if they have looked after humanity in totality. And that is why my brothers and sisters Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the greatest of sins after doing * with him to be killing a soul in the authentic nation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
right, he said, It is as if Allah will forgive all sins except for the one who commit ship with him, or the one who kills an innocent soul. And there are many narrations like this and say Buhari is a Muslim.
It is as if Allah will forgive all sins, except the one who can be shipped with him and the one who kills the soul. In one authentic hadith, Allah subhanho wa Taala the prophets are seldom made life so sacred, so sacred, so sacred, in fact, is narrated by the Buddha sitting in the seat of the verse, Allah says, Allah Taku fusa calm, do not kill yourselves. In in some of the series, it is narrated this hadith which had he does it the Hadith of the one who is treacherous enough not only to others, but to his own self, and he kills himself.
And he so much is life, regarded in Islam and highly regarded that you are not even allowed to take your own life for any purpose or any reason at all. And the Hadith is authentic, where the prophets are seldom said, anyone who kills himself with a knife than he will be stabbing it into his tummy in the fire.
any he used the word other than which means that he will be there in forever. And some of the scholars meant that the punishment that he deserves,
is to be in Ghana forever though of course Allah can still forgive as well because we know that one of the Sahaba Allah subhanho wa Taala did forgive him, even though he had he was in deep pain and he lacerated his wrist and then he died. Allah so just to forgive him because he dies the Shaheed but this
Not returned his hand to him because he had chosen to take his life or Hurry up his death by taking his life. So though Allah might forgive the person who takes his own soul, but know this, that the sin of taking your own soul is so great with Allah subhanho wa Taala that he has made this, almost like an unforgiving, unforgivable sin in the words that were used. In the same way. In the authentic hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam spoke about two types of disbelievers If we kill them, one of them is called the me and the other one is called the Morehead and I will explain them. I will explain today that there are four types of disbelievers we need to know. Okay, and the
rulings about all the four types of disbelievers of the scholars have talked about. So the Prophet has said and authentic hadith and say Muslim said whoever kills the vim me
then he will not even smell Jana even though the smell of Jana can be smelled for 70 years. And then the Hadith of the moi head he said, and whoever killed him while he said that he will never ever smell genma even though the smell of Jana can be felt for 40 years. So the heavy the 40 years is to do with my head. And how do you go 70 years is to do the vim me Who are these two people? The vim me is the one who pays jizya who pays attacks the 7% paid to Muslim him and they stay under protection of the Muslims they are called Allah Zima. The head who are the more head the more head those people who the Muslims have have a contract or an agreement with. So for example, Pakistan might have an
agreement with Bhutan for example. So Bhutan then becomes more ahead. So if someone attacks Bhutan, Pakistan must go to the defense of Bhutan. Does that make sense? Because the people of Bhutan are more head. So if a Pakistani then kills a Bhutanese, then a Pakistani would that would then not smell Jenna for 70 years. Does that make sense? And this is what is meant by this hadith. So be very, very careful. The Hadith about protection of Seoul does not extend to only believers. It extends to beyond believers it goes to the point of even
it goes to the point of even even the disbelievers so much so there's an authentic hadith intermedial Ahmed, which is as follows amazing Hadith which is authentic, which is authenticated by a shackled body.
And that he says if the people of this dunya if the people of this dunya every single human being right, every single human being got together conspired to kill one man
that Allah will destroy them all.
Amazing Hadith, right? If the people of this dunya all got together, conspired to kill one soul, that Allah will destroy all the people just to show you how Allah subhanho wa Taala does not ever accept it. In fact, so much so that some of the scholars such as a suti said that the Hadith about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbidding the killing of women and children and the abbot, meaning the worshipper is mutawatir.
Right? So you said the hadith of not killing women children, and the more I hit the abbot
is mutawatir. What is mutawatir? mutawatir is a hadith where in every chain of narration, there are so many narrators, that it is impossible for the narrators to have to have agreed with each other to make it a lie. So as a result of mutawatir Hadith is stronger than
Animoto water does not even you don't even need to look into the snap, because there's so many stats. And so that just shows that the Prophet says seldom said it so many different times so many different places. There's so many different Sahaba heard it. That is such an important point. Does that make sense?
So never kill a woman never kill a child. never kill a person who is an Abbot a worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So this is an A in fact, this hadith itself, is the biggest evidence against those people say no, we can kill people, if their countries are fighting Islam. Why is that? Oh, because they also agreed they also put the vote in so therefore they must be with them. If these countries are fighting Muslim countries, we can kill them as well. We say no, under no circumstances. Under no circumstances, the prophet system did not even allow it. Even for those enemies that were fighting and conspiring with each other to fight. He never allowed any Muslim, any non Muslim women children or slave or worshiping, worshiping Abbot to ever be killed. And the Hadith is mutawatir. So it's
something which we cannot go against. So my brothers, my sisters, Islam, this issue of soul of how important a soul is, first from the perspective of mind
Mr. Solomon is mercy. Then from the perspective of Islam, the Quran as well as the Sunnah and how Islam in the Quran safeguards human beings.
Right. And from the perspective of how Islam also protects the life of the Morehead and also the the me, you have to make this clear. You have to do this you have to learn about this. And you have to go out there and make it clear to people say this is what you're taught alhuda this is what the Quran teaches you. This is what your teachers taught you. This is what you need to go and tell them. So that is the law with this inshallah to Allah, you spread the right messages and people hear what it is that you are learning here, and will lie but by Allah,
by Allah I have found in Islamic history, that the times when Muslims
applied Islam were handed when they had a strong attachment to Islam was when killing and destruction and life was preserved, or killing was less and life was preserved. But it was when Muslims were detached from Islam, that we found killing and war. In fact, learning the Quran and learning Islam is the solution to humanity's problems. In fact, it's in the Quran itself. It's the surah baqarah when the people when the angels came to the to Allah sojourn and said utter geography Hama uctv, Hawaii's people Dima, what did Allah say in the Talmud? What does it mean? I have a grand plan. What was the last grand plan? Well, Allah, smart Allah, Allah Islam said, the grand divine
plan was through knowledge, Allah was going to save safeguard humanity and life.
When you have knowledge, then you will preserve life, when you don't have knowledge, you will destroy life.
And this is why I do not stand for this be intolerant when people say say that by learning the Quran or Islam, you're somehow going to destroy life absolutely the opposite. It's exactly how we preserve life. By not learning this is exactly how we will destroy life.
And that is exactly the divine plan. So this is the second thing you must make clear. The third thing.
The third thing my brothers and sisters Islam that I want you to,
to understand, and so clarify to others is understanding non Muslims and Who are they? There are four categories of non Muslims, according to the scholars of
the scholars effect, say disbelievers. out of four types, they all generally called kuffar. disbelievers, but
they are within Koufax, themselves are four different types according to rules of Okay, what are these four? It's very important to know them. Because some people will generalize it No, no, there's only two types, or some people that are the only one type. No, no, no, there's four types I'm going to tell you about. And they're all from the Quran and Sunnah. In fact, I'm going to give you a hadith evidence of where it's from. So number one, the first is called the Herbie The one who is actively fighting Islam.
The one who is actively fighting Islam that is an enemy combatant in the battlefield, that is fighting Islam. That's called a heartbeat. Let me say it again, an enemy combatant that is fighting Muslims. In the battlefield in the battlefield, that's called a heartbeat. Are we clear?
Some of the elements said okay, they may not be fighting the battlefield, they might be going to the battlefield or coming back from the battlefield. Either way, they are at war with active war with Islam actively fighting Islam. That is called a heartbeat. That's number one. Number two, the second one is called the vim meet. The vim me is the one who wants to live under Muslim protection.
And that person pays the jizya. And so that person is given protection of Muslim in that person is called the vim me number three, the third one. The third one
the moi hit.
Okay, and this is the person who we have given I had, this is the the country that has an ad or a contract,
or a peace treaty, a treaty is a better word contracts between two human beings, treaties between countries. So this is a country that has a treaty with another country. So the people of that country become more hip to us, so we must defend them. Like we would defend our brothers and sisters. Are we clear?
That's number three, number four. Number four, the fourth one
is the Kaffir who is called a Hillel among the people among people who have been given a mana
protection so Herbie the me my head and a man a man okay the people are man I'll explain a man a man comes from the from the from the incident where the profits are seldom said whoever enters into the house of a Muslim today on the Battle of in Makkah, he has a man Okay, so any Muslim on that day could choose to put any of the disbelievers in his house. You can't touch him is under my protection is a man. Okay, so today let me explain all of those four different types how to be someone actively fighting Muslims and fighting Islam
actively fighting Islam
yeah actively declare war on Islam
this is called a hobby number two is more head or Debian apologies vim me, do we have them? Not really? Because there's not though love Islam today that is paying jizya. And so as a result, there is no second category at this point in time. Why do we have that peace treaty between Muslim countries Muslim majorities? Yes, possibly. Yes. But number four, do we have people a man? Absolutely. In fact, all let me say it again all disbelievers that come to Muslim countries that are among
all disbelievers without any restriction that come take a visa on this and get a stamp on their on their passport, they come legally to Muslim country of Ireland, a man who has given them a manner that a meal of the ballot, the leader of the country has given a man to that person.
Right, as a result, as a result, it is haram to kill any of these four different it is haram to kill anyone. But the first one
only one who was actively fighting Islam in a declared war between Muslim countries or a Muslim country. That is the only one that we can fight all the other three you cannot.
You cannot. And this needs to be clear. You need to know what and what you can what you can't.
And this is very important one because when you explain it to people, and whether it be yourself or your your brothers and sisters that might be confused out there not knowing because they're getting information from everywhere. They don't know they might be seeing an ISIS lecture, they might be seeing something from here and there. Listen to one mowlana saying something one verse of the Quran, he misunderstands hasn't taken the hold of the Quran. So he doesn't know how to understand it explained to him these four things.
The last three you cannot touch you their blood is sacred just like the blood of a Muslim. In fact, I have come across
verses or statements I'm sorry statements of the lemma even Haji Rahim Allah, Allah palani, who said that the verses where Allah Allah's Messenger talks about the
Muslim should also be applied to the Demeter the warhead and to the Allah man.
In fact, even hedger has, has stated that so many of the unima have stated it again and again. In fact, I have not find what lemma who actually say anything other than what I've just told you, which is a man, more head and the me are to be given total protection, just like any other Muslim out there, that means, if a Muslim breaks the leg of the me or more head, a man than the Muslims leg is also to be broken An eye for an eye in the court of law, of course, right? If Muslim harms are Halima, then the same rule must be applied upon that Muslim as well. So therefore, do not use the label of Islam, except in one issue only. And that is whether that person is a hobby or not. So the
so in this in this point, the last bit I want to tell you is, are the countries at war with Islam? Are the countries at war with Islam?
And the truth of this matter is No they're not.
Number evidences number one.
I personally don't know of any great alum or scholar. And you know, by the way, you know, here's what's happening to the Muslim world today. You know, we have medical doctors different levels. You've got interns that just come out doing the house job. Then you've got consultants and you've got head of department, like the head of ICU, the head of medicine, then you have the head of the hospital correct, guys. So imagine now you have a little baby, and the baby's dying, and then you say, Okay, you know what, there's nothing more we can do for this baby. baby's gonna die. So we have to pull the plug, as they say. Now, who do you speak to? Do you speak to the intern?
Who do you speak to? The head consultant
Not only that you probably asked for two consultants or even three consultants or even asked the head of the hospital to get involved to give one final final view on this point, would you agree? Because it's such an important thing. And that's just one baby. What do you reckon about the Obamas SLM? Why the heck are you going to Tom, Dick and Harry? Chef, I sell so and so's chef to her so and so. I met so and so. Oh, my God, he said, very nice lecture. So what are you talking about? You hear a random stupid lecture on YouTube. And you convinced, are you crazy? You're going to the intern. They're not even interns.
They're not even interns. Many of them that we go to today random chefs random guys, we ask about about the most important issues that affect the oma are not even interns.
That's why even Tamia Kamala, in his fatawa he says the greater the problem that affects the oma The greater the orlimar that we must ask about the solutions. Okay. Would you agree that this topic of whether Islam is at war with Christianity whether Muslims are fighting America Americans fighting Islam? these sort of questions would you agree that we shouldn't be asking shake feistel Shakhtar her shake our magic so and so? Tom, Dick and Harry guys, congrats. Oh, yeah. So what he graduated from Medina. So what he graduated from so and so's university, I mean, a graduate from a university. With all due respect me as a consultant in my in my hospital, I look down at them. It's like
because, you know, they have to relearn relearn medicine, because what you learn, I know, when I was a intern at at medical school, at Apple, just when I graduated, I remember.
As soon as I graduated, I had a badge saying, doctor to feature three in a shiny badge. There's no rust on it. I still remember, as soon as the first day of the hospital, the nurse came to me, Sir, could you write some fluids for this baby that is dehydrated? I'm like, What do I write?
What do I write? I still remember this. Then. Then that day, I had a another intern was with me. She was a female. She called the consultant and saying, sorry, sir, I'm calling you. My patient has a headache. I said, Oh, does he have a headache? See, I don't know what to do. So those are the consultant goes, What do you do when you have a headache? I sit down and I take some panadol. So so the consultant goes, how about starting that? Would starting with that?
Do you understand? Stop asking him to
stop asking people who are just because no, they've got a YouTube video. Just because they put up a website. What are you doing? You guys are meant to be people of knowledge. You can't devalue knowledge. Certain things can only go to the greatest of our lemma. You cannot even be asking me, Rahim or anyone else. You have to go to the greatest orlimar Do you understand? So if this is an issue that affects an oma with an oma must only be answered by the greatest Salima? Do you know of anyone from the greatest orlimar alive today, except that they are in agreement that we are not at war with Christianity. We are not at war with any of the countries that have been mentioned. I don't
know if a single item was said that. And for me, I worship Allah on that basis. Otherwise, if it was so that we are at war, there would be different answer. But I worship Allah on the basis that there is no war going on. And we have further evidence of this. We have mustards that are open in Muslim countries, in non Muslim countries, we have the art and Messiah that I love to preach. I am a preacher, that is using an Australian passport to enter into a Muslim country here and find all sorts of services that I need for my counselor and my embassy. And when I don't have a job, the Australian Government will pay me and when I was doing that was spreading Islam around the world
through alcocer. The Australian government paid me because as a student, a student is entitled to some benefits government benefits as a student.
So why why would we say therefore Australia is at war with Islam? Why would we say America's war with Islam? We don't say that and there are no signs of it. There are definitely that show this at all. And as a result, with all due respect, the harby this category do not use it at all. And it is not upon you to judge it is upon the greatest of the allameh to give that fatwa. When the time comes, do you understand what I'm saying? Right? We don't have to apologize for our Deen. We must make it clear that yes, Islam does believe in jihad. And yes, there is something called a heartbeat. But we worship Allah with the fact that we don't believe any country is at war with Islam at this
point in time Allahu taala, Allah and Allah so
What Allah knows best, and in this point we'll leave this affair to the greatest or allameh that are alive at this point in time Are we clear about this? Right. Finally, finally, equity the fourth point I want you to remember the first one I mentioned was that forbearance and patience gentleness right. Number two is understand the Islamic rulings regarding life and the mercy of Mohammed settlement spread this number three understand the different types of non Muslims fick wise Yes. And then understand specifically clearly this is why fifth is important, because it helps you clarify what is obligatory what is right what is wrong, and puts categories and types and it helps you
understand number four, the fourth thing I want to tell you all and that is that this trial that has touched alhuda is coming to each and every one of us in our homes.
Yeah, it's a trial that is not only going to touch this gonna touch mercy mission, it's going to touch the organization's check up. The Rahim works for AI era, it's going to touch any other organization out there any other Masjid out there, every other Tao organization out there.
And be very, very careful. lest we be from the people who don't defend our brothers and sisters. It is obligatory to defend our brothers and sisters. It is obligatory to defend our brothers and sisters, it is haram to give them up at times of distress. In fact, the scholars Islam have complete edgemarc that if you do more Allah, what does mala mean? Remember this word cudmore Allah, the scholars Islam have complete each Mara, that if we do more Allah have a disbeliever against a believer, then that is tantamount to shake.
Okay. And if we do an A, which is that we help IANA which is we help then this is not shared, but this is tantamount to Kabira a great sin. So let me explain the two mu Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, Mama yet Allah who mean confer inhuman whom, right, whoever amongst you? Does the worldly of them then then you are from them. What does mala mean? wala means that you love them? That you hate the believer, but you love the disbeliever that you support, and aid the disbeliever to take control of the believer and his affairs and his life. So I want anyone who comes to Muslim Muslim organizations to spy I warn them for Indeed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade
this, if there are people who come and they will be and I want you all to expect this. And in our organization across the world now.
They are spies. And there are people that infiltrate in order to create fitna and anyone who takes a cursory look at fitna in times of fitna, in fact, we should be studying in this organization and I really suggest that we do we study Kitab al Fitton of Imam Al Bukhari at times of fitna, okay. It's very important Kitab fitna, we have to study it how to behave at times of fitna because no this this fitna of Manasa teen Allah's Messenger lived with them for 10 years in Medina. Allah's Messenger lived with them with this new set called the Manasa thing that never existed before. He lived with them because I'm one of 15 spies amongst the Muslims and pretending to be Muslims but actually
spreading the news. So they'll be coming to you. They'll be asking you what do you think of this? What do you think of that recording of this one point, only to cause distress to you in the future? And instead of you being worried now be intelligent expect this. Expect this one? Yeah. Expect this and I want anyone out there who's listening to me who was coming to our organizations lectures to record to spread the fitna. Know this, your secrets will be revealed on the Day of Judgment. Allah will expose you on the Day of Judgment your fitna will be shown. And Allah promises that in the Quran, Allah says Palais Amano fossa Yara la mala Kumara sallahu wa moon, Sumatra donella alameen wa
Shahada for unit b okuma Quantum tamanu say oh Mohammed Salim to the believers and to the human beings act, do your deeds for Indeed Allah is looking and the prophet and also the believers, then you'll be returned back to the life of the hereafter and Allah will tell you what we used to do. So be very worried Allah will expose you in this verse, Mr. matahari Rahim Allah said in the Tafseer of this verse, one of the meanings of this verse is that Allah will expose the
good and the bad you do.
So Allah will expose the good you do so that people know you're a good person. So your good also increases by their door out for you. But also if you're an evil person, enough, Allah will expose you like a like suppose that Manasa t into the prophets of Salaam, Allah will expose you as well be very careful. And all of the lemma of Islam by each ma are in complete consensus spying is haram. spying is not allowed for a Muslim to do to join spy agencies is not allowed in any way or any shape or any form in any area or any country any way at all. or to even give up secret information in this way. It is not allowed to do so and this is something which Allah and His messenger and any sensible
person will find repulsive and, and incomprehensible.
So in times of trial, brothers and sisters, my advice to you all is to go back to Surah Yusuf and learn about how useful Allah sort of Salaam dealt with trials three ways he dealt with trials, number one, he was forbearing he was forbearing what is forbearance again, when the fitness strikes when the difficulty strikes don't react. Don't react. Make Vicar of Allah
ask Allah for sub if you're standing up Sit down. If you're getting angry government will do don't react don't say a word. Don't react, take your time Take your time before bearing and if you do repel, only say a word of gentleness. Only say a word of gentleness nothing more Do you understand? Number one, number two is suburb huge suburb.
We are going to have to sacrifice a lot of things. This fitna and trial we're going to have to have lots of sub inauthenticity the prophets have said that if I was in prison, instead of use of Alisha Salaam that I would have listened to the die, what is the dye, the dye is the person who came this is authentic and say Muslim. And this hadith states that when the person remembered use of Alicia Salaam, you know with Quran and Arabic And the guy had forgotten for many years, then suddenly the man saw dream, the king saw dreamed and remembered use of, then he went back to the prison to call use of what did you do? Did he come out straightaway? He said no. What did he say? He said, go back
and tell your king to ask the women what was the issue for which they cut their hands? So Rasulullah sysm said here listen to this. He said if it was me instead of use of I would have answered the diode of God out. Meaning you could have known him Allah. No, no, we said in the deceit of this hadith explanation, this hadith he said, Here a solar system was praising use of over himself. Even though the Prophet had so much subber he was praising use of over himself because of the sobor of use of any one of us might have said Oh, really asking for me Yola, my chance to get out. Even then you said no, I'm not getting up. I've been here 10 years, one year more is not going to be anything
else. Go and I am not going to go out until my name is clear. Isn't that right guys? So panela that's called subject that is subject that is subject.
And the final advice after sobor
after forbearance and gentleness, and sobor is deal with mercy and justice, deal with mercy and justice all human beings. Mercy to the believers justice with the disbelievers mercy with the believers just as the believers This is how we understand the verse in the Quran. Muhammadan rasul Allah so SLM Valentina Mara who ashida Kufa Marina home, this is how we understand a Shiva meaning
they are just so the justice is shaded, the justice is shaded, wherever whereas with the believers, we are not just just we are more than that we are merciful with forgiving. And that is why that is what mercy really is. Well load Allah Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala to preserve organizations like this, and you all have to grow up. You all have to grow up. I mean, this is Allah's way of growing you up quickly. You don't have time. You're you might be young in your age, but you must be mature in your heart and mind. And you must be mature to be able to take this fitna and more. And finally, remember this one verse that you recite every single day in your in your in
your Quran, what is that verse? He cannot a Buddha can Stein. So why do we say he can Stein off the ear canal bucola Imam Mohammed Abdul Wahab Rahim Allah He said, Every single person who worships only Allah will be fought in this dunya. They said about Allah salatu salam. They said about Mohammed Salah Majnoon.
They said about the prophets of God
What they said, they said about the companions of Muhammad Islam the most evil of things. So they were fought with their tongue they were fought with their hands, and they fought with swords. So we will also be fought with the tongues and the hearts and the minds and the swords. Intellectual war before the real war.
Prepare yourselves with iaca Stein only you we seek help. Less help is always near Zakouma l'affaire Walker Dhawan and hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen.
