Madeira, respected brothers and elders in Islam.
You know, once I was in a class, and my teacher was teaching me in the class, so he came into the class. And he said, Do you know how to make a lot of money?
He was a funny teacher. So he came into the class and he said, How do you make a lot of money. So we all say, start a business. And someone said, Be a petroleum chef. And someone said, you know, sell this sell that. And some people say that you have to be a big businessman. This is how you make a lot of money.
And so he was looking at us, and he was looking here, I was looking there. And he was smiling.
I said, No, no, all of you, you've got them wrong. You're all wrong.
The way to make money
is either through one of three things,
what are three things either through the word called sex?
Yes, either through this you make a lot of money, or through drugs, you make a lot of money,
or through rock and roll, you make a lot of money.
These are the three things you can make a lot of money, a great, everybody agrees, correct. Yes, this is what the West tells us. You want satisfaction,
these things will give you satisfaction, and you will make a lot of money, these things will give you money, they will also give you satisfaction.
Whether they whether they say it implicitly or they say explicitly, this is their message to you or my brother and my sister, this is the message to you.
Whether it is in the textbooks, whether it is in the curriculum that our children are taught, whether it is in the media that we hear whether it isn't the ads that say sex big so that everyone looks at it and then comes on Oh, we're gonna sell this and we're gonna sell this to sell that to this is the message that the West preaches to you at this time. Why? Because this is what sells, rock'n'roll sells. Drugs sells and sex sells. Yes, it does.
What is the proof that it sells? Look at the consumer society. Look at the American society. Look at the Western society. how advanced it is economy is economics. How much money does the American economy have? What a backlog it has? How much money can it make? And look at his people how happy they are. Have you ever seen a movie? Have you ever seen a Hollywood movie where people were crying? They're always smiling. They were the biggest smile. Have you ever seen an insurance ad for example, that was not smiling. Everybody smiles on it. Every single ad in the West
shows people smiling. Why? Because this sex and drugs and music is what gives you satisfaction it says, This is their message to you.
And whether this is explicit, whether they tell you come to this, or stay away from this, it is always implicit. How is it implicit?
Let's see how this word called sex. How this is so ingrained in the life of the West, in the western mind, how is it so ingrained? Well, you see, they start when it's small, when they when people are young, they start when people are young, because they know the when the young understand this, they're going to have the same values when they grow up. So they always start young. And this is something we forgot. We Muslims always forget, we don't start young. Okay, so they start young, they're good intelligent.
Psychologists, right? So they start young. So they tell the young
they tell the young what they teach them, that this word sex is what is very important in your life. How did they do that? Well, you see, they have sex education classes. In school. Something that most people do is what six education classes. What did they teach you? Then? They teach you how to have safe sex? Don't they teach you this? They teach you how to have safe sex? They What else? Do they teach you? The teacher there's nothing wrong with free mixing and staying with your, you know, your girlfriend, and whatever the problem you want to come with a prom and who's getting the problem? And what are you gonna wear? What is she gonna wear? Or what's what's the perfume? What about the new
dress? This is what the West is teaching you that sex is all right.
Said sex. Exactly. So when I said sex is all right. This is what the West is teaching you my brothers. This is what the West is teaching our children that this is how satisfaction is gained. So you see the Coca Cola bottle. You see the Coca Cola generation in our time. So the Coca Cola bottle how nice it is curvy. You see the Coca Cola bottle, it's nice. You see it starts off small on the on the top, and then it comes on nice and curvy on the top. And then as we as we go down, it gets nice and curvy and then it falls up again. This is the Coca Cola bottle. Do you know how they actually came about this? Because they said okay, men like nice and curvy women, right? Men like nice and
curvy woman. So what did what did they do? They said, okay, we want men to buy Coca Cola. Okay, so what do we what do we have to do in Coke, then we have to put in Coke, caffeine, we have to make it nice and burning. And also, we have to make it nice and colorful. And also the shape has to be right. So the shape has to be just like, the shape has to be just like what, just like a woman, just like a woman nice and curvy. Yeah, this is what they say. This is the Coca Cola generation we're living in. This is the sex culture that we're living in. These are the values that we're living in. How many ads have you seen that has the word sex used on it? How many naked women? Have you seen on
the on the ads? This is the culture that the West is calling us to my brothers, whether it is explicit or implicit? And what about drugs? What about drugs? How do they call us to the drugs when she drugs are different types. There's alcohol, there are the soft drugs, as they are known as and they're also these hard drugs. They're the best they're known as, right? The hard drugs meaning what, for example, heroin and cocaine, right and softer drugs. And then we have alcohol, which most people don't even consider it right. But it is a drug. Why? Because it takes away It removes your appetite. It removes your sense, to the west, is built upon this one brothers, it calls you to this
philosophy, take the drug be happy drink, and have a nice time drink and have a nice time. This is what they say. Why because when you drink, a new sense goes when you drink and your sense goes that all the problems that you have in your life will just fade away.
All the problems that you have in your life will just fade away. Okay, they say the best woman is the most prettiest and the most beautiful looking woman right? But most people are not the best looking and they are not very pretty. So take the drugs, right? punch that, you know, sit that alcohol and take that injection, give yourself the boost. And then what's going to happen is you're going to lose yourself in ecstasy, you're going to go to another dunya another life
and this is what is going to give you pleasure and if also this doesn't help then I'll add a third thing on to you what is the fifth thing music of rock and roll music and rock and roll.
So take music for example.
There is not a single place perhaps in the Kufa in the in the lands of the prefer not a single workplace perhaps, or not a single place of shopping and marketing except that we
Faced with this constant problem of music, listening to music, have you ever gone to office? You haven't heard music where perhaps, or someone playing music? Or have you ever gone to a market where you haven't had music? Do you ever wonder why? Why music music music? Why can't people ever go without music? They say no. Why? Because you see people are always dissatisfied. So you need this music to be an opium to the people, for them to go out of this life, go away from the misery and the horror and go to a different life into the life of the music itself. So we see for example, they have made for us pop idols, what have they made first pop idols. So we have Mashallah. Michael
Jackson, and we have Madonna, we have these pop idols. Who are they? What are they? They are indeed signs of this commercial life, their signs of the Western culture. These are the people that have made up and call them idols. Why? So that we can go to towards them? They've called them stars. Why stars? Why not call them planets? Why did you call them stars want to call them sons? No, we call them stars. Why? Because he's looking up, look up the stars, and you always wonder how high they are. And you always want to reach the stars. Who are the SE stars? Don't you see how they say a hotel is three star or four star five star? Yes, indeed. So the column star and not just that they
call it mega star, and also called mega mega star. Why so that you can always follow them?
My dear brothers and sisters,
all of this that I've just mentioned to you are deceptions of the shutdown. All of this, my brothers and sisters are deceptions of the shutdown. Why?
Because all of this is an escape from reality.
is an escape from reality. No, life is not all about sex. And no life is not all about taking drugs, and leaving this this world and leaving this world behind and going to another life. No life is not all about rock and roll and music.
So what is life about? I asked you this question. And I want everyone to answer this honestly. Has everyone got a key in his pocket? Has everyone got a key in his pocket? Do you have a key in your pocket? Yes, you do. Right? Because this came your driving? You have a key in your pocket? Does that key have a purpose? Yes. What's his purpose? You want to open the door and you're gonna put the key in the engine? And then you start the car? Right? So the key has a purpose. What about the needle? you swing needle? The needle that your mom has in the house? was never purpose? Yes. What's the purpose? You use it to knit? correct or not? Yes. So if all of these things, the most simplest of
things in this life, such as the key, as such as the needle has a purpose in this life? How can the human being who is so perfect? Who is so great, who is the center of this world at this time? How is it? How is it that he does not have a purpose? Does he have a purpose? Indeed, he has a purpose. And because he is the best of the of what Allah has created, then so as well, he has the loftiest loftiest of purposes.
And so what is this purpose? When you see the fourth article in the Constitution of the United States answers this question because he wouldn't read the Quran at the moment, right? The fourth article in the constitution United States answer this question. What is that? It's a it's the right for every people to search for happiness. Yeah. They say that the goal and intention of every human being is what? To search for happiness, happiness. So they say therefore, happiness is the end purpose of human beings.
Happiness is the end purpose human beings we agree we Muslims don't disagree. We agree. Yes, happiness is the end purpose of human beings. However, we disagree with them. We disagree with them in the way in which this happiness is gained. How is this happiness gained?
We disagree with the my brothers, Allah.
Allah subhana wa tada
Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Allah, Allah,
is it not by the remembrance of Allah that the hearts find rest?
Is it not? But the remembrance of Allah the hearts find satisfaction.
He is indeed it is by the remembrance of Allah, the hutzpah and satisfaction will lie it is not the music will light is not the sex it is not the drugs. Why? Because it is a temporary relief from this life temporarily from the subtle, but it is only in remembering Allah subhanaw taala in thinking about Allah in what Allah is how Allah is in only knowing where Allah is to find out to find that all these things know how we will meet Allah and inshallah will
in paradise within it is all these things that actually give us satisfaction. My brothers have you seen a person who believes in Allah and you compare this with someone who does not believe in Allah compare someone, for example, a scholar in Islam, compare him with someone on the street for example, a, someone whose hairs all over the place, someone who's got all pins and needles and all of his body and he's got he's banging his head, he's banging his head and music. And he's taking both drugs and and is committing illegal sexual intercourse, compare this person to someone who is sitting here on the front row of the mosque and crying out of the fear of Allah who is more
satisfied from this life who has more satisfaction,
who has more satisfaction, it is him who has more satisfaction, it is him it is this man here it is this brother he is sitting here and is remembering Allah subhanaw taala my brothers and sisters in Islam, if you want satisfaction, if you want satisfaction from this life, there is only one way and that is Allah subhanaw taala that is to remember Allah subhanaw taala that is to take a path to Allah subhanaw taala if you wish to find satisfaction in anything else, whether it be money, whether it be music, whether it be women, whether it be drugs, then will lie You will not find satisfaction, why?
Some people will be saying why can't be drawn between the to right, what can we say a little bit of a little bit of dunia right? Whether you're going to extreme Why don't we just say you know a little bit of dunya a little bit of just join me to do mix a little bit. And of course as we grow older Mashallah you know, will will start following Islam more. And of course, you know, our desires will go less so we'll start following will lead to dounia more correct.
Perhaps some of you are saying this. But the answer to this is
Allah says in the Quran, that he has not created for any of you two hearts in his body.
Allah has not made two hearts for any any human being. Do you know what this means? How many hearts do we have?
Okay, we don't need any biologists or any anatomist to know this answer. How many hearts we have? We have one heart. Allah Zoltan has not given us two hearts. Why is Allah saying this is obviously a parent question.
So a silly person, a silly person will look at this eye and say, Hey, what is this, I said it has no value. But what law is full of value? Well, life is full of value. This verse is indeed extremely important, extremely important, because Allah has not given you two hearts. Meaning whether you wish to follow Allah subhanaw taala, or you don't wish to follow Allah, it is either the two, you can't join the mix between the two. You can't have 100 following Allah subhanaw taala and wanting to hold on to the religion and never had going away from Allah subhanaw taala. and wanting to follow this dunya and the western ghanians you can't have that. You can't, you just can't. And you can't mix it.
It's impossible. You can't mix the two and it's just not possible. You can't make saltwater at normal. Sweetwater they just don't mix, don't you know that there is a barrier between them.
In the same way, my brother, my sister in Islam, you can't join between the two, you're either this side or that side. You either will allow you or against him.
So this is why we find our brothers and sisters who are trying to mix between the two leaving a very confused life. They don't know where they are.
They're here and they're
gonna they're not here. No.
Have you seen them when
they actually show the actions outwardly and inwardly did not believe so Allah says.
Allah Allah Allah.
Do you see them very confused? You see the Neely leading a double personality? You see them being two faced? Yes to face with Allah subhanaw taala we get up to pray. And they say their prayers and they say Allahu Akbar yet indeed, they do not mean that Allah But why? Because to them sometimes, sometimes, because the light music and the light drugs and the light sex, you will see them being taken away by these by these desires. So Pamela, you can't join between the two. You can't join between two things that are so opposite. Allah close to the earth and Michigan close to the dunya Can you be an abiti? Can you be a worshipper of Satan and be worship of Allah subhanaw taala. At the
same time, you can't you can't join between the two. So it is either this way or that way. It is either the Coca Cola culture or it is
Otherwise, it is a horrible idea it is true worship of Allah, choose which side you wish to be, choose make a choice. If you haven't done it yet, do it now. This is your time, choose my brother, which side you wish to be.
You see now with so much problems that have been happening in the West, so many problems we're going through, whether it be the problems that happened in America, and problems that have been happening around the world, from the west fighting the Muslims in the Muslim, some of the Muslims trying to fight with the West. You see, this is a forgone for us. What do I mean by this for
a dividing barrier, a criterion to divide those who wish to follow this way, and those who wish to follow this way. You'll see once Rasulullah saw the loved one,
he was sitting in monster group of his companions, and sitting in the middle and he had a stick in his hands.
And then he drew a line in the middle of the road. And on the on the dirt, he drew a line, he drew a line. And then after that, you drew lines to each side.
And on the left, he drew lines
to his side as well.
And then he said co2 Longstocking, this road is in front of you, is the Straight Path of Allah. And these other roads that you see on the side these other lines, these are all the paths that lead away from Allah. And on the head of each of them is the shaitan calling to it.
so for example, the path of music. You either like jazz, you like pop, or you like beat or you like rock and roll which one choose? The each of them is checked on calling. Or you like drugs which one make a choice, cocaine, heroin, which one make a choice each of them to treat I'm calling to you like sex, which way make a choice. Hello, hello, Allah Subhana Allah, Asha teen calling yet the path of Allah subhanaw taala is Mr. Kane straight in front of your eyes, you cannot miss it, it's in front of you, you cannot miss it.
So make a choice. Now, make a choice which path you wish to be on.
Don't come and tell me that I'm trying to join between the two is just not possible.
You will be leading a very confused life. You can never lead a proper life. If you want to join between the two. It is either one is either the Western culture, or the Coca Cola culture.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, indeed this Western culture
that is being ingrained upon us, whether it be through the advertisements, whether it be through the TV, the newspapers, the billboards, whether it be through the ads, whether it be through the flyers, in whichever way in whichever information media you look at it.
All of this is leading to really bad effects upon this community, which the West does not want you to know which what the West does not want you to know. Yet, if you just logged on to some of the statistics websites on the internet, such as the Bureau of Statistics. If you just logged on there amazing things away to you. All Yes, amazing things. You will be going like this. If you're going like that you'd be cracking me hands. I can't believe that. I can't believe this. Now, in every three seconds a woman is raped in America.
every three seconds what a woman is raped in America.
That is that that is the pinnacle of success, isn't it? This is what your sex, drugs and rock'n'roll culture has bought into.
If you want to know what the West has lost by dismissing Islam, this is what is lost. It has lost its sanity. It has lost its chastity. It has lost its trust. It has lost its values. It has lost all good.
By dismissing Islam,
from their culture, they have lost a lot of good.
And a few Muslims who have been blessed by this religion. If you wish to also lose a lot of good, they follow what they're calling to
Subhanallah This is something I just couldn't forget.
In every three seconds, a woman is raped.
Now, we all have sisters, we all have mothers, we all have daughters, we all have wives.
Are you going to partake to a culture in which such things happen? Are you going to partake and follow and hold is high a culture in which such things happen? Obviously not every logical person will say not
that how is it that you will
into music. How is it that you may drink alcohol? Or you take out the drugs? How is it, my brothers, that perhaps when a beautiful woman walks past that you turn your eyes off for example, you're overtaken by the desire and the and the and the beauty of women and the fitna of the women.
If you do not want your sisters and your wives, and your daughters and your mothers to end up being that one statistic, in that three second gap somewhere, they are the one who was raped, that don't follow that their values don't follow the values, because the values this is what is leading to the news. This is the statistic that is leading that is a direct result of the values.
Allah subhanaw taala
has indeed created human being for lofty purpose, he did not create us my brothers and sisters, so that we may just procreate, he did not create us for this for this purpose. It is such an a meaningless thing. It is such a lonely thing. It is such a lonely thing. Why is it lonely? Why because it is, it is not befitting of Allah subhanaw taala to do it. So it is not befitting of Allah that it is befitting of creation, right. And therefore, this is a proof that it is such a lonely thing. It is a lonely thing. It is a lonely, basic human instinct just like eating and drinking lettuce like sleeping and those in us this is all a lonely thing, which is befitting of human
beings. Yet Allah subhanaw taala has not created us for this purpose. Allah has not created us for this purpose.
There is a greater purpose or less greeted us for and that is indeed for his worship. And that is the loftiest of things. That is the loftiest of things.
Allah says, Allah insha Allah Allah.
Allah says, We have not created jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me,
except that they should worship Allah, do you not find this lofty?
Do you not find this lofty? Or do you find it lofty that you should just sing and dance, to the music of, of certain certain musicians? What is more lofty?
What is more lofty, what is more noble in your sight? that a man
in the farthest part of the mosque, he's bound down to his Lord, with tears rolling down his eyes, asking Allah for refuge from the Day of Judgment, which he knows is near?
What is more lofty and more normal in your sight? Have you lost shame? Have you lost a chain? No, you have not machine because you would not be here in this mosque if you did not have shame. So indeed, that person is more lofty.
That person is more noble in your site. The one who finds satisfaction Allah subhanho wa Taala is more normal in our site.
The one who find satisfaction in Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is more normal in our site.
Unless Mandela says, Listen to this very carefully,
Allah says in
Allah Vina either lucuma wants to boom.
Well, either too late
to wallarah beanitos.
Allah says, what the real believe is, the question is put forward who are the real believers? Allah says in non
believers are those who care Allah if Allah is mentioned, what in the hearts tremble?
tremble the hearts tremble.
Fear enters into the heart and hope.
Fear and into the heart, a trembling, you hear your heart trembling. Have you ever have you ever felt sometimes you have this tremble? Or you I teach? Or your body just have a caution run through it, but that
it's a tremble rather
it is your soul speaking to you, it is effectively soul When unless polygon is mentioned in
valuing Allah subhanaw taala as mentioned, the hearts tremble. Why because of the satisfaction of satisfaction because this is what really is the music of your heart. This is the music of your heart.
You want to know the to what your soul is playing. You know what your soul is playing today. It's playing.
It's calling you to Allah. This is the music of your heart. That you should remember Allah and find rest and satisfaction. My brothers This is the message today. And this is what you should go away with. Yes, I put the title Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll to really bring me why because I knew that this is how people in the West they put the title you know really grabbing titles, but really it's about satisfaction levels.
It's about satisfaction. This is my message to you, if you want to find satisfaction, and this is your right, as Allah says, and as the fourth article in the Constitution of the United States, and everything else says also, this is your right to find satisfaction, you will not find satisfaction. Don't turn towards these distractions. These are but futile distractions away from this life. These are distractions. Yes, they're distractions, they are distractions, the distractions of the distractions, they will take you away from Allah, they'll take away from real satisfaction. How many people? How many people know about Michael Hutchinson? Anyone know what Michael Hutchinson?
Do you know who he is? Michael Hutchinson? Of course, you don't know who he is. Why? Because that person died so many years ago. yet. At that time, he was very popular. Yes. Very, very popular. Who was he? He was one of the singers in in excess. One of the bands, musical bands. Okay. His name was Michael Hutchinson. And you know what happened to him?
Do you know what happened to him? You see, he was a typical musician. Okay, all full of fitna all into women and all into drugs, and all into rock and roll. What a life you lead. A star is what a life you lead someone or children should follow. Oh, yes. What a star he was.
And you know how he died. You know, this guy died.
He was sleeping with a woman
and getting drunk and taking drugs.
And he strangled himself to death. And his girlfriend strangled him to death whilst he was on top of her.
Now imagine you in this state,
imagine you in the state,
that you are committing Zina,
and you are taking drugs, and you listen to rock and roll. This is the pinnacle of satisfaction, right? And then the Angel of Death comes to you.
The Angel of Death comes to you. How would it be? How would it be?
What will the answer be?
Will you say Robert G. Ron?
Will you be of those who say Allah sent me back so that I may do good from the things that I left will be of those? Or will you be of those that Allah smart Allah says in the Quran, Allah
Allah to build this listen to Allah says, Oh Will you be of those people as Allah says, Listen to this, he says, Hello Tara, if you were to only see it as long
as the wrongdoers are in the terror of death, the terror of death the moments of death, when men are eager to pass it to IBM and the angels have put forward the heads actually do second calling the soul Come out Come out, calling the soul to come out come out and Yamato
today you will be given that terrible punishment.
Because what you used to say about Allah subhanaw taala, which you had no proof upon which you had to delete for whichever authority for it. And from the science from assigned us to turn away.
choose how you want your death to be. choose how you want your death to be. Choose whether you want to be remembered as a person who was righteous and honorable person, a righteous person, a godly person. Choose which book
you want your name to be written in. Choose which side you want your book to be given to to your left side or the right side. choose how you want to be raised on the Day of Judgment. Do you want to be raised? Looking with eyesight? Or do you wish to be raised without eyesight? Do you wish to be raised standing up? Or do you wish to be raised on the ground? And the angels pulling your hair and dragging you? Do you wish to be raised?
Do you wish to be raised in this manner?
How do you wish to be raised with your judgment and make a choice? This is what I'm talking about is what I'm talking about? satisfaction my brothers and sisters
is what I'm talking about. satisfaction in this life and the hereafter. satisfaction in this life and the hereafter. You see, we always say there is agenda Allah has created the agenda, correct? Allah has been agenda. Yes, that is right. But did you know unless we,
unless we have two genders? Yes, two genders. You see there is agenda in this world and agenda in the next level? Yes, these agenda in this world and this agenda in the next world.
And he who does not enter the gender of this world will never enter the gender of the next world. What is this gentleman talking about? What is this gender that I'm talking about? It
his agenda of satisfaction of Allah subhanaw taala. It is the champion of knowing Allah subhanaw taala. It is the satisfaction of knowing that Allah is pleased with you. This is the agenda that I'm talking about my brothers if you do not enter this gender, voila, you will not.
You will never enter the gender. If you don't enter the gender agree, we all agree on this, then why are you stopping yourself from this gender? Why are you letting yourself fall into the Hellfire of this life? Don't fall into the hell of this life and to the gender of this life, come to Allah, Allah, Allah invites you. Allah invites you shaitan does not invite you, Allah invites you to come to the gentle, come.
Allah, what's good for you? Allah gives you an open invitation, my brothers and sisters come to the agenda, except the satisfaction of knowing Allah Subhana Allah.
is by the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala the husband dressed? Well, indeed you see, there was a brother
that I know of
who Yes, he did find satisfaction by remembering Allah. This there is a brother and this is the last thing I will say.
There was a brother I know of and he found satisfaction by actually knowing Allah, the actual remembering Allah. But you see, this brother was not a Muslim.
Many, many years ago, about 20 years ago, he was not a Muslim. He was a big dog was he was a big dog. You know what Don means? He was a big drug lord, big drug dealer, a brother that I know is a brother. No. And I'm not saying
it is a truth. I'm sorry. I can't tell you his name. I'm sorry. I can't tell you his name. But it is a brother that I know. And I swear by Allah, I know him. I swear I swear. Swear again that I know him. It is better than I know. And he was a big dog. You see, he's walking money as he told me. He told me he used to walk on money, meaning that he had millions and millions from his drug trade. Oh, yes, he had millions and millions. And he was so slick. He was so slick. The police never caught him.
A drug lord.
He was one of the biggest people
in his city. One of the biggest people in the drug trade in the city. But you see, when you have the drug trade, everything else comes correct. Everything else comes so the women come as well because they want money. And when you have drugs, your money and money buys everything buys you alcohol buys you was you women and buys you drugs and also what is value it also buys you music. So you have every single thing so this brother had Mashallah. Everything open to him. He used to walk in money as he says he used to drive every single place he went to he had a car he used to drive the best of cars. He's told me at some names, he told me I don't even remember.
I don't remember because I wasn't even born at that time, man.
So used to drive the most the best of cars, the most slickest of cars, and about women. If you only heard about the story that he told me about women.
If you only heard about the stories he told me about the women,
everything open for him every shot, every evil, open to him clear, easy. What a life, man. This is it every calf his dream is to have money and to have sex, to have drugs. And to have women then is part of Latin music. And what a beautiful dream, right? What a beautiful dream. What a beautiful dream. Yes. So you had everything
that you see once he left his house, and he wanted to kill someone. Yeah, this is what I can tell you. Right? Okay, so he came out of his house, he came out of his house, and he was on his way to actually kill someone. And he told me something that's caused my heart to change. And I was gonna turn left.
Yet I took a right turn, I was gonna turn left. I was about to go left. But then I ended up going right. If you went left, he would have gone to the guy's house that he wanted to kill. And he was gonna kill him and kill the children and kill the what? Kill him, kill the children. He was gonna kill him. He's gonna kill the children. And he's gonna kill the wife. And he amazing he was gonna kill them all. I said, What did the guy do? He said, Well, he went to the ghetto. He went to the ghetto. You know what the ghetto is? the ghetto is the black neighborhood. It was the is the underground you see the underground, the this other guy who went to the ghetto and said that such
and such as an informer, and this is supposed to be the biggest thing that someone can do. Okay, I don't know. But this is what he told me. The biggest thing that someone can do, according to the ghetto is say something such as an informant. Okay, so the brother went, he was gonna kill the person, but he took a right turn. It was as if he was gonna go left to hellfire. And then he took a right turn to go to Paradise. So it took a right turn. And he said, I don't know why I did that. So he went and took a right turn and went and in front of him was the house of a brother that he knew a brother who had accepted Islam that he happened to know
So he stopped his car, got out, spoke to the brother. And the brother met him and told him what he was about to do and some conversation to between them. After that the brother actually gave him the Quran said, Brother take a lesson to here really Allah subhanaw taala set you here for this, but I just had that feeling, take this.
So he said, No, I don't want to take it. But then he took it. So it took the score up and he went, and he went back to his car and he went to another city where his goal was, where his goal was. So he went and on the way he was reading. And over there when he was there, he was reading subparallel open his heart and open his heart. And it was except it was not except that about seven weeks later, was seven weeks later, this man, he came
to the Juma prayer and accepted Islam. But you see, this was not it. Because all throughout all throughout the six weeks that had passed, he had been coming up and down. He had been having this feeling of satisfaction in his heart, this immense feeling of satisfaction from knowing Allah subhanaw taala my brothers, this is a true story. This brother did not stop here, he went forward and forward, Mashallah he married and he and if you were to know him, and if you were to see him, and if you were to be his friend, and you would indeed be you indeed, thank Allah subhanaw taala so much that has given you such a righteous companion and asked Allah subhanaw taala put him in
paradise inshallah. Imagine this. My brother's a person who has left all of this. How difficult is it? How difficult is it? Yeah. Yeah. How difficult is it to leave a beautiful woman calling you to her? How difficult is it? It is indeed so difficult. If the most beautiful woman of this world came to you and asked you Hi, Tara, come to me this like this like she did to us of this like a beautiful woman did to us whatsoever. What would you say? Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He desires and she decided you would also desire as well. You are a human being you're a man. You would end up design.
But would you accept it? This brother had everything open for him. Yet he gave everything up. All his women, all his drugs, his millions that he used to work on his cars, his houses, he gave him all his context. He gave every single thing, every single thing, every single thing. And I swear that this is true.
And I swear this is true. He gave us every single thing in order to find the satisfaction which is true in order to find the everlasting satisfaction of Allah subhanaw taala of knowing Allah, Allah
Subhana Allah Allah Mohammed ik eyeshadow La Ilaha and stuck
with me lol Henry la salatu salam ala rasulillah. He was so happy Amanullah okay.
If you could repeat the question again, my brother.
Okay, my brother saying, how would you stop someone from listening to music? And how and would you stop him straight away? Or overtime? A good, very good question. But if I may take one step back and ask you this question.
Is music necessarily the worst thing he's doing? It may be he's doing something was first of all, first of all, second of all, is this person praying? Does he believe in Allah inshallah does? Second of all, does he pray?
And does he fast and do his other obligatory things which Allah has made obligatory beforehand,
that say he doesn't say a person doesn't pray at the same time he also listens to music. What do you start with lovers? What do you start with? What is the first thing that we should start with? The first and foremost thing we start with? First of all, is Allah subhanaw, taala. Right, the belief in Allah. Thereafter, the person has believed, then the second most important thing that we start with is the prayer is the prayer. Yes, the prayer. So if he's not praying, we tell them to pray,
of course, in the best amends, and in the best of ways, using the best of examples, and the best of ways such as, for example, you take him along with you, such as, for example, say, hey, let's go out to the park on the way we'll just pass by the mosque. So just for example, getting someone else to speak to him.
There are many different ways to actually do this. Now, let's say a person prays, but at the same time listens to music. What do we do now? We say my brother, your prayer is not really working.
And if I was intelligent, then what I would do is I would still tell him to pray properly. Why is that you asked him. Why? Because Allah smart Allah says that the prayer takes you away from the filthy things.
The Prayer is something that takes you and keeps away from the filthy things. So if he's doing prayer, and he's doing it completely correctly,
On its time and on it's true that it's conditions and and the way that it's meant to be done,
then it really should be taking away from the evil things in the end the disgusting things such as music. And it is only because he is not really completely doing his prayer
that the prayer is not having an effect upon him and therefore is listening to music will lie if someone found peace in prayer, and someone found happiness in prayer, then you easily find that he would also leave music and he would leave everything else that is disgusting and sinful.
Right? So if my advice would be my dearest brother would be to advise this person to first of all, make sure his prayer is correct. Make sure his prayers correct and make sure you know what I mean by correct meaning the best of ways he's praying with complete sincerity is playing without any distractions he's playing on time is playing with the Bilbo is with complete purification is praying with all all how prayer is meant to be his belongings to Judas belonging, his his, his prolong his prayer that indeed you will see by himself you will find no peace, in prayer. Why? Because when his heart becomes towards Allah, there is no way it can turn away. indeed one of the one of the fear of
the verse of the Quran that Allah says, Allah did not create for mankind two hearts, two hearts in his body. One of the one of the deep seated fears even the best of him Allah had said that if a heart goes towards music than it does, if a heart has music in it, they did not have the Quran and if it has the Quran does not have music in it correct. So therefore My bet is if it has underneath then you will never have music and so you work on this, this first you work on the Salah first and inshallah everything else will become easy and clear after that. Of course thereafter My advice is
to give him my tapes of the of the Quran, say for example, he likes rhythm and beat out okay, I'm just saying a couple of things not like I listened to music. Now what I did was just before the talk actually went through the different types of music so I know what the names are okay? It's not like listen to them. Okay? So let's say he likes rhythm and beat and rhythm and beat is as you know, as you inshallah don't know, is a guy singing with a nice voice right? with a nice big to it Okay, Mashallah. There's so many people so many. So many insiders with such beautiful voices, such young and beautiful voices, why don't you just take a tape that has 20 different voices in it and say,
give it to him and say listen to this, which one do you like? Let's say he picks this one. He picks that one. And he said my brother Okay, I'll give you a take the best interpretation of that particular person to him and see how it feels. Indeed, what brought me back into the religion my brothers was the Quran was what was it was me listening to a tape of a person reciting Quran and crying and I could not understand why someone cried because music never made me a day but I said, music never made me cry never touched me so much so as to make me cry. So I did not know what was it that could make a grown man cry? What was it? It was indeed the music of the heart. It was indeed
Okay, one from the sisters
says How will I make my numbers without being distracted by worldly things? If it comes to me, it makes me forget what I'm doing or saying in my numbers.
There are many ways to increase increase crucial in your Salah. And indeed, channel This will be a title of a talk, inshallah, in the future, how to achieve commercial and solar. It is a big topic of vast topic, how to really have commercial solar, and indeed someone cannot have solar activity outside of solar. And he will not have huzhou outside of solar until his heart is at peace with Allah subhanaw taala until he has excelled and he has realization that he's praying and he's worshipping Allah, as if Allah is in front of him. So if you're asking how the Cushman Salah really out answer by saying Do you have to shoot outside of Salah. Okay.
As a simple answer to your question of how to shoot and Salah my answer would be to pray as if Allah subhanaw taala is in front of you. If a great kings in front is in front of you of the Queen of England comes in front of you. How would you be strike Okay, I'm sure everything is correct. You know, speak speaking span everything that is in the middle has to come in the middle you know, everything is speaking Spanish. Yeah. And you know, hello Quinn. This is how you'll be speaking Spanish is Allah smart Allah, the King of kings, not a queen, the King of kings. Imagine that.
In front of Allah subhanaw taala you're standing the King of Kings the mightiest, mightiest of beings. Allah subhanaw taala. How therefore, will your state be if you had this realization, this is why some of the some of the some of the pious predecessors you would see that you will see them that they face will change when they will be
Who would be praying? Why? Because they would say you know, in front of who I'm standing you know in front of who I'm sending it is indeed Allah smart Allah, the King of Kings
I'm sorry, I don't know which one is this one the men's and the women's? If you have led a life of sin before embracing Islam, would you be forgiving bimala inshallah, because Islam removes all sins after it Islam removes all sins after it
the question says, Is it correct
to film record another living being or events like these today
though, they might have different opinions regarding the issue of taking pictures, what issue taking pictures
to enter into this topic of this one because it is quite a vast topic. But the issue is clearly that the lemahieu do not pro do not permit to the taking your pictures, they say that taking pictures is just like taking a making a picture of creation is like making a sutra they use the word term called surah in Arabic and surah is to make a lesson man is to make a drawing of creation because also some really forbade the sutra and the drawing of creation of a thing that has sold what do I mean by something that has sold I mean by for example something which human being says that has sold in it such as for example a drawing of a human being or for example the drawing for dinosaur yes why
dinosaur because dinosaur has fallen off for example, the drawing of
Thomas the Tank Engine because sintomas tank engine Yeah, Thomas the Tank Engine? Why? Because it has a face? And why does it what's what's the purpose of giving you the face and you'd like to select like saying this Thomas tech engine has a soul it's not an inanimate object, it's an animate object, why because it has it has a face. So, this is like saying he has a soul. So drawing a Thomas the Tank Engine with your pictures and we hands will not be permissible at the same time as well drawing birds
because it has souls for example, drawing animals would not be permissible as well. However, things which are inanimate such as for example, drawing this mosque, just for example, drawing you know my clothes for example, that mean for example, drawing, you know the heavens of the earth for example, you know, making a drawing of the sunset, for example, drawing of the of the moon, for example, drawing of the mountains, all of these are permissible inshallah, and there is a small kill of monks Allah, but this is a chef chef. So, this is permissible, what I just mentioned to you, this inanimate object is permissible as the enemy objects and those things which have sold in it, that
drawing them is not permissible. So, do we say that the photograph also takes the form of, of drawings, this is where the philosophical dilemma is divided between permitting it permitting it, or not permitting it or,
or sayings mcru. Basically, the llama also say that, the hakomi also depend upon the reason for which the for which the photograph is taken, if the photograph is taken for the purpose of glorification, like, for example, a big chef has commercial, he will take a picture, so you want to hang it up and say Mashallah big chef. And, you know, worship the chef or something, obviously, it is correct. Or, for example, let's say you're taking a picture, because your your father's going away, because he knows he's going away for for, you know, 10 years. And so you just want to keep a picture of for example, your your brothers in the army, and he's going away, you don't know if he's
going to go live or not. So you take a picture of him, right, and you want to keep the picture, this is not allowed, why because you will be looking at the picture and me going Oh, how I love my brother or, you know, even looking at the picture and almost making it better and making that into the picture. So this is something that's not allowed. On the other hand, for example, you may be taking a video, which is a bit a little bit different, again, making a video of an Islamic lesson of an Islamic lesson, right? In which for example, we'll make videos and then give it to the people and perhaps they'll be guided, perhaps Allah will enter a little bit of Eman into their hearts. So all
of this therefore would be this would therefore be permissible. So therefore, we say that really the way that I prefer is that photographs, and video, they're all dependent upon the reason for which it is taken. Okay, reason for the reason for what, for which it is taken, of course, we're talking about the animate objects, but the inanimate objects if you're taking a video or a picture of the of the horizon, sunlight, that's absolutely fine. There's absolutely no problem with it. Right? Because if you're making, if you're making glorification film, you're making glorification of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala which is fine because then you'll be making a lot of a lot through it. But
if you're making a picture of a human being then of course I prefer the opinion that is dependent upon the reason for which it is taken. So therefore if it is if it is taken for the reason, a photograph or a passport, or driver's license, that I see that it is permissible
For you to give you a photograph and and if it is taken for the if it is taken for the purpose of teaching education for example, anatomy brothers and sisters who have to study MBBS you know medicine and they have to draw the human body for example, many of them are given Fatah whatever is permissible, for example, you need to teach children you know children, children books, when the light is permissible inshallah, however, if you wish to stay away from it, and this is better, you wish to stay away from it, you know, it is better, because he protects his says away from those that for matters, because it is still a little bit doubtful. What am I not all agreed on this matter is
still doubtful. So, if you stay away from it, then you need to protect your religion.
What do you mean when you say achieving gentlemen in this life? Yeah, what do I mean by saying that to achieve German this life, I mean, to achieve inner peace, when you are at peace, it doesn't matter, that you might be having pain outside. When you see someone is in peace. It doesn't matter. You see, there was an island, there was an island by the name of this island, you see, he was a great,
a great animacy a great Island. And he was known to be a great worship of Allah subhanaw taala. But but once he gave a home a ruling, which the ruler did not like, which the ruler did not like, the Muslim rule at that time in that in about, you know, what, six centuries of God not like the ruling. So what did he do? He wanted to either kill him or throw him out or put him in prison. So his students came to him and they're crying. They're crying, listen to this very important. They came to him crying, said Oh, Chef, so also, they are going to kill you, or do this to do that to you. So he smiled at them. What do you do require He smiled at them and said, What will they do to me? What
will they do to me? If they banish me, then that is a vacation for me?
If they vanish me, banish me, it's a vacation for me. If they kill me, it's martyrdom for me, as they put me in prison, that is being having solitude with Allah subhanaw taala being alone with Allah, you can defeat such a man. This is the agenda look at the agenda and this life that he's leading. Do you understand what I'm talking about now? It is the satisfaction of the heart, the total satisfaction of the heart about Allah subhanaw taala
This is what I'm talking about. The peace and satisfaction which the West wants to give through give to you through Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. This is the agenda that I'm talking about the agenda of satisfaction.
Okay, don't be confused now. Where do I put it? Put it here.
Can you please mention one of the two blessings about the Firstly, leaving the letting the beard to grow? But the beauty of the Java This is a major issue with the sisters.
Last part Allah.
And also Lawson
has wanted for us the best of manners, best etiquettes. And an indeed the best etiquette for a human being is to be at complete satisfaction with his outer self.
For if he is at odds with his outer self, that this is not from the etiquettes. So it is not from the etiquettes of a human being of satisfaction that human beings actually have long nails. Have you seen anyone with long nails? I've seen someone with, you know, having a long nail You see, there was a woman in the Guinness Book of World Records, she had a huge dance, right? They were going spirals and spirals of what 20 meters or so they would stretch out to say it was the Guinness Book of World Records. It was a long time ago about 20 years ago, perhaps now who knows longer? Yes, because I'm sure she hasn't got it. Right. Right. Is this from the etiquettes of a human being to have such long
nails? Well, no. Why? Because you see this lady I remember seeing her she would go to the market and she's from England. I think she'd go to the market and a nails will be so big. She goes into the market like this. I should be taking bags like that people will be looking at is this one etiquettes of human being? Obviously not. What about the hair? Is it ethical? Let it go so much that it's it's as long as a wedding gown. No, it's not nothing etiquette, is it? Neither is it from the etiquettes to let your hair grow under your armpits or in your pubic region. Why? Because it is ugly. Everyone agrees on that. We all agree that it just gives you a bad smell in the arms and gives you no bad bad
smell Anyone else? Right? So it is not from the etiquettes in the same way my brother to leave the beard is from the etiquettes of human beings. It is from the etiquettes Have you ever seen from the people of the past? Or the people of the past? If you ever seen someone in any pictures? You've seen pictures here, and you've seen pictures of insulation of the Christians have drawn? You ever seen a picture of that a beard?
I have never seen a picture of that again. Are you telling me why why did the Christians like to
Therefore, shave the beard.
This is going against their own teachings, isn't it? their own, you know, profit or God as they, as they call it, and it has a beard. How come they don't have a beard? So how can they say it's ugly or it's not? It's not nice. It's not manly? Well, light is manly. The light is mainly until I remember reading some poems of the pious predecessors. Some of them you know, some of them would not be able to grow beards, right? There'll be very little B, it's because they were from Bukhara, for example, or other places, you know, Chinese people, they don't have much beards, right? They have very little B, and they would say, Oh, how I wish I could buy a beer with 1000 victims. The people got points
like that, you know, this amazing, the absolute ones How I wish I could buy every year for 1000 dinner every year.
And we Mashallah we have big beards Mashallah, we're from you know, Pakistan and Bangladesh and India, Mashallah we have strong hormones not being so strong, and we don't even want to hear, how's that? possible? It is from the etiquettes, my brothers, my brothers from the etiquettes from the beauty of a human being, it is from the nobleness of a human being to have a bead, how righteous is a person look with the beard, how much does it look how honorable he looks, how honorable and if he loses the beard, my brother, he there is no difference between him and the person on the street. So try and have it be difficult,
but this is what will separate you and make your life easy for me for you to leave all this other life, the life of the women and the flashy Life Life of music, and then come to the real Islamic life. Be it really yes because when I kept the beard in about a couple of years ago, when I kept the beard then my whole life changed my whole life changed.
As for the job, the just like the beer is to the man so is the hijab to the woman. So is the hijab to the woman and the hijab, my sisters is not just the hijab you know the nice thing we put on the head like this nice and beautiful, no, it is a complete way of life. It is a complete way of life and I emphasize this again, hijab is not just you know this covering yourself covering your head Mashallah looking nice and beautiful and pretty No, it is the complete hijab the way of life it is that you should stay away from men, it is that you should avoid mixing with men it is that you should make partition men should stay away from those men who are not going to do what is not
permissible for you to see. This is the complete hijab What is the use of a woman who is Mashallah covering up nicely with even covering a face and covering her hands and even covering the little bit you know underneath her toe Yeah, she's covering every single thing yet Mashallah, she's you know, men screaming sing she's going on anyway. There is absolutely no need for that. Then what is the use?
No, my brothers, my dear sister, well respected sister. You are a normal woman, you are a normal woman and allows made you a normal woman. Your job is a whole way of life. This is what Allah has decreed for you.
Okay, brother says brother, can you give advice as to how to warn others from such since then etc, especially someone who is not a practicing Muslim? How do you want someone
who is making who is committing Zina? How do you advise him? Or let's say not committing Zina, let's say even you know, going up with women, okay, perhaps not even reaching to that level of Xena for going on? How do you advise him?
My brother there wasn't there was one way that I used to advise people that always work with me.
It's a bit sickening. You see, it is as sickening as the deed that he's doing.
Okay, it is as sickening as a deed that he's doing. You see what you do is you remind him of his mother and his sister and his daughter, and if his wife and what if someone was doing dinner with them? And you didn't know?
How would you feel? And you see Allah Allah has given us this consciousness in our in our heart, this zerah in our heart, that we cannot tolerate that the person may commit Zina but he will never never have this in his heart that his mother or his daughter or his wife, or his sister, whatever comes in, so when you advise them with this, and you say my brother How would it be if they committed sooner? Or they were actually how would it be? And you find him enveloped in shame you see a full of shake his face full of shame. He will live full of shame. Why? Because no one can handle this. What about his little daughter his little daughters they were 12 years old 1314 little
daughters. So what about you your little daughters? What if someone's committing Zina with them? How would you feel and you want to commit Zina? Obviously this is the best way that I have found all this works. Now the way it works is always to say this woman that you're committing Zina with Do you want her to be the mother of
Do you want her to raise the children and what if she was your wife the next day that you go next day that you leave out of the house and take a trip to another another city? Is this you gone for two days that she'll be committing Zina with the next man next door?
Yeah, what's stopping? She's committing Zina with you What stops her from committing Zina with another man? Nothing stops her.
So beaten in life you talk to them in this manner? It is I know it is in a sickening, disgusting, but you know, I've always found that this is some
methodology that always works with them always works with them. Because the advice is a sickening as the sin itself. You see, sometimes we have different sorts of dirt in our hands, right? Sometimes we just go like this, and the dirt falls off sometimes go off to blow. Sometimes we blow harder. Sometimes we have to rub our hands. Sometimes we have to rub it very hard. You know, dirt is a different type. Sometimes we have to use soap. Sometimes when we rub so hard, it causes friction, right? And it hurts people It hurts the hand doesn't it? such as advice advices such, sometimes you have to give us a small blue and we'll go and they sometimes the dirt is so hard. The sin is so
strong, you have to rub it very hard. And even if it causes friction, and even if it costs a little bit of heat, that's fine. Because that is what that requires.
Okay, one from the sisters will try and hurry up inshallah, what can we do to stay on the right path and not succumb to our
knifes or the whisperings of shaker
some practical tips would be appreciated. The practical steps to stay on the right path and not succumb to our whisperings of the shaitan is basically a talk I just gave a couple of hours ago. Okay. I don't want to repeat the talk. But a summarization of the talk is as follows. The first of all,
first of all, you should have patience, patience upon the color of Allah patience upon the guidance of Allah patience upon the bar that the action of a bear that you're doing. So for example, you might be going out on the streets, but you're working and woman and women and music. So you close your ears, and you close your eyes and you turn your face away.
Yes, this is what is required. This is what they better. This is a better way. But sometimes it gets so bad that it's going gets really tough. It's really tough. I know I've been one of you. I've been one of you. I know the going gets really tough. really tough. I know man. It's very tough. So what do you do? The first and most important thing is patience, patience and patience. Patience is stubborn. Just sit down, have a drink of water and make dua to Allah Allah give me seven Allah give me some how do we learn methodology Alice's secret future traitor. Give me some give me some. Then after that. You say Allah give me give me give me a reward will reward me. Why because when you ask
for love, Allah makes your heart feel good. Why because you're not going through this difficulty just this like that, you're going to get something in return for it. So when you remind yourself that you are going to be rewarded for what you're going through.
When you do find yourself you feel stronger,
and you feel more able to take it on. Right? So have patience. And then have
ask Allah for reward. ask Allah for reward. These are two really important things. If these two things you can remember when the going gets tough, it's enough for you enough for you. Right? Have patience. And what other formula
Okay, how do we know when we are excessive with materialism? It's very clear, very clear. Look at the people around you. What do they say? What are the people saying Mashallah, you know, he's buying this and that so much. You look at look at society, look at the society has a norm You see, every society has a norm, and anyone who goes above the society, then it's known, and anyone who goes below the society then it's known, you see the norm amongst the society is taken into account in issues of other issues of Islam. So look at the normal society, what is normal society, okay, 1500 pounds that says normal society. A person lives in such a house with two rooms in such an area.
That's not a society, he drives such a car. He has normally one car to car. The normal society in this place is different from a normal society and Pakistan is different from the normal society in Australia is different than normal society in Africa. So the normal society look at it, and then you see, are you going above it? Are you going to load the normal society you're going above it?
Then you know you are going excessive materialism. If you're agreeing to the norm of society, then inshallah it is acceptable materialism, but you try
decrease that so that you're below the normal society materialism I'm saying in materialism so that you may leave this dunya and think about the
next question was, when is Jihad fought upon? The Muslims? is suicide bombings permissible?
bimala will answer this question at a different
Okay, says here is not fine, whether in this age of MBAs and lofty qualifications, where everyone sees university degrees is the key to success and education. Can you clarify for us to have you done also law so seldom, which means search for knowledge even in China? Which knowledge would would we have, would have priority? First of all the Hadith that says search for knowledge in China is not a hadith. Not a hadith is not authentic, it is fabricated, okay, is what is fabricated how the photos lots of never said, Never said this. Okay. We hear this in the tongues of many people for the profits of some neighbors said this. Okay. And I don't think there was a china at that time, I don't
think was the China guys. It wasn't China. Okay, there was the China at that time and this Hadith, but by way of knowing, vast majority of the whole Ummah, in fact, all of them
no matter what I mean, they all have the same have all said this hadith is fabricated, okay. Searching for knowledge in China is fabricated. However, of course, the other hand is the same, we should search for knowledge. So the brother is asking which knowledge has priority, which is a knowledge that has priority, the knowledge that has priority, my brother, is that knowledge, which is very clearly the thing that will increase your level in the next life.
And everyone knows what the knowledge is the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala the knowledge of his names and his attributes, the knowledge of, of his of his prophets, Allah selama knowledge of what he has left us with the knowledge of Islam, and what Islam requires us through this is the knowledge that has priority. Why? Because when you are in the grave, they will not ask you are you an engineer? Okay, which type in a civil engineer, or mechanic mechanical? Which one? Or is it? No, no, they won't ask you all this. The second question is not going to be which type of engineer I'm sorry. The questions are all going to be Who's your Lord? Who's your profit? And what is the
religion? These are the questions were brothers? These are the questions. Are you preparing for these questions? You're not you must prepare for these questions, you must prepare for these questions. So therefore, the knowledge that will lead you on to give you the right answers for these questions, is the truly Islamic knowledge is no but Allah is know about this religion. And will law when you start setting what is religion, you will find this great satisfaction and peace. That meaning that ask Allah subhanaw taala to share it with you as well.
Okay, next question says it is sad, but many things I find over here in Birmingham, and then that is harder than in
London, the mosques are packed out with brothers, which is nice, but in dorm prayers, there is hardly a complete first row. Why would this happen when all of us are still coming?
I don't understand the question.
All right, right. In Java plans, okay. Yeah, the word is asking why in Japanese everyone comes. And and everything else, no one comes. While you see because Islam is a habit.
Islam has become like a habit for us.
It's a culture. It's a conscious thing in a culture thing. You know, the Jews go to the synagogue on their day. And the Christians go to the churches, right? The good Christians go to the churches on Sundays as the Muslims also go to their mosques on Fridays. Why are you asking this question by the simple.
That's why that's why they come to this when they come on in Jamal. had they known the great reward on salah and praying in congregation that to pray the dorm prayer, the agenda of the whole night of praying is written for you. It is as if you prayed the whole night, if they only knew what the what the answer is in plain combination, the night prayer that half of the Mitel praying is written for you. If they only knew what the agenda praying, the first rule is, is that if you even knew the answer, you would you would crawl on the eyes, even if you even if that killed you. It was all full of eyes, the whole world to the mosque was full upon it, you'd still you'd still pray. And if you
knew that, in praying the front row, if you had to put in ballots, you'd still put in ballots. And if you only knew
but the Muslims don't know.
This is why they don't come to the doctor.
By the way,
once I was in the plane and traveling, and there was a Jewish rabbi who was who was sitting next to me by chance,
okay, not by chance, not by chance, you know, he happened to be there. So I sat next to him
Okay, you know, the seats were free there was no one next time. So I sat next to him. And he said, he, you know, he started the talk himself, I didn't start so he said, you know, you Muslims,
you know, you Muslims, your mosques are empty It is only when your mosques are full for your fudger prayer that will take you into into account. Everyone has asked questions I've been asked a question and I will ask the question, but inshallah I'll ask it after this. Okay says here, do you not agree that the annum scholars should be in to interact more with the local community youth who do not attend mosques, rather than emphasizing their preaching within the masjid all the time to people who are already on their way to the straight path? Yes, I completely agree with this person was written in and I think it was the system was written. Yes, I completely agree with this. I completely agree.
And I think that the emphasis amongst the Muslim community and the Muslim leaders has to be towards youth centers not really mosques mosques will come and shown the muscle company you will never come to the mosque Why? Because the mosques don't have a gym, the mosque don't have a place to run around and and you know, have a have a laugh or have a joke. No, the youth in our times are into a different sort of life. And if you only ask the brothers who had a difficult life they came to came to came with the right partner, you asked us Pamela you know, our our dilemma and our our movies and our and our emails are not in tune with their with their children. Our community leaders are not in
tune with the children Yes, our communities do need to be educated on this on this point, that they need to make that our towards the towards the youth as well as the youth need to be brought in. Why because the people who already come to the mosque will already come to the mosque. However your children out there your children, how many amounts? Do I know that the children are so lost? How many moms? How many scholars do I know scholars and scholars? How do how many of them do I know that the children are lost? So many of them are lost and lost on the streets? So it just pains me to say this, it pains me to see this. So therefore Yes, I agree that that the dour really needs to be tuned
towards the youth at the same time respecting our respected elders inshallah last question was second last question why performance Allah if the photo is in your pocket and scrunchie note what is the ruling Salah is okay or not? Well it is just like
malware we send Arabic I'm available I don't know really how to translate this correctly. But to say that you know, just like for example, you have to shop right? You have to go to the market and you have to buy food correct. But when you go to the market and the shopping place they're gonna have music now it's not it's not it's not it's not permissible for you to listen to music correct or not correct? Yes, at the same time in the check in the cashier register and all that and in the market, you have free mixing with the woman right? You're walking this way pushing a cart at the same time another woman's going past this free mixing really, isn't it? So you have so many hormones when you
go to the market but but then you have to buy your food, you have to buy your food otherwise you're not going to live or you have to eat you have to feed the family correct or not. So we say that this haram that we're going through is something which is unbeatable at the heart of it and the trials and tribulations of it have become so common now that it is forgiven and overlooked in Sharia it is forgiven overlooking Sharia why because a greater good is going on what is the greater good that you're buying your food in order to actually live and and feed your family in the same way this money that you have in your pocket? Every single currency unfortunately has you know a picture of
their ruler or whatever on it. This is incorrect it should not be done should not be done this is not Islamic should not be done. And but if we were to just you know, let's say out of the mosque and there was a there was a you know,
cupboard setup say everyone please
keep your money back here and shall everyone you know and they've come in and they and they pray without the money back and then when they go out there take the money I'm telling you people are gonna take the wrong money backs. Yeah, people not gonna take their money Mexican thing wrong money banks. So would you agree that the trials and tribulations regarding this has become so much the Charlotte's forgiving? Yes. Do you agree?
you all agree, correct? Yes, of course we agree. So therefore, inshallah, Allah does not hold us to comfort. And the last question asked you, and this is it.
I hope everybody has understood what I was want to talk about. And the question too is is this
where does your satisfaction lie? Where does the satisfaction live? Does your satisfaction lie with Islam? with Allah subhanaw taala with remembering Allah subhanaw taala or does the satisfaction lie in something else? Answer this question and you will have understood the top three minutes
