00:05:29--> 00:05:38

yeah, I'd love to visit. That'd be great. How long did it last? We have a lot in common there. So tell us now, you what led up to this.

00:05:39--> 00:06:21

This prayer video that now you and Andrew Tate you're in a masjid you brought them into a mosque and you guys are side by side praying. Please talk to us about this. I mean, what people don't always mean and we'll go back. Maybe 15 years, Andrew made his debut are fighting on one of my shows in Essex, a little town on the suburbs of the UK southeast. And so I've known him I've known his coach who's a Muslim, Bosnian Muslim. I mean, he came from he was coached. And basically his mentor was a Bosnian Muslim. I mean, he's a very respected guy and kickboxing in the area called Luton. And from Southend on sea in Essex, so we know each other, you know, like you have peers in the martial arts

00:06:21--> 00:06:37

world. So then I moved to Dubai, in 2008. And every time he come, we touch base, he'd reach out, let's catch up, you know, a lot of the guys from the UK. I'm kind of the go to guy for mixed martial arts or catching up if you know, someone is like, I'll reach out to time he's in Dubai, like that we kept in touch. And

00:06:38--> 00:07:06

then obviously, he blew up, we stayed in touch, and I saw him could become a viral YouTube star. And the funny thing is, when I used to watch him, I said, we have a lot of things. I was like, hey, Andrew, like, you know, I love what you're saying, like, not everything, but a lot of the just what he would say, we as Muslims relate to it was very different, you know, as you know, from non Muslim to speak in these things publicly, and having no kind of bar or limit to what he said he had no fear. So kind of long story short, we're in Dubai and

00:07:08--> 00:07:46

Russia, we well, he's here at the moment. He's based here right now. So he, he knows me, trust me, you know, we go way back. And a lot of people he meets he'll come to me and say, Who's this guy? Is he good? Because he obviously with his status, he has to be a bit careful. When you've got the people against you the powers that be but then we were discussing, we will say that she was Steven Seagal a few nights before. And I said, you know, I'm gonna tell you when it's got much is one day, because I want you to feel how that connection is between the creator and the creation. I can't explain. So just when you go into mush it quietly and you put your forehead to the floor, just

00:07:46--> 00:08:06

something special. He said, bro, I would love to do it. I would love to and it wasn't like, you know, I wanted to test his reaction. Some people be like, Yeah, okay, you know, they don't want to Oh, yeah, maybe. He was like, Yeah, I'd love to and then he said to me, You know what, but I'm really I want to convert. So anyway, he brought this up. I really got martial for sure. That's, that's like the goal.

00:08:07--> 00:08:25

So two, three days later, there was a UFC that might it was an Abu Dhabi. Islam I have against Charles Oliver. We were gonna go to the event then we didn't last minute we just thought he gets a lot of kids chasing. We said you know what? Let's watch in a local fast food restaurant in Dubai. So that they I was waiting for him. I said, Okay, let's go

00:08:28--> 00:09:00

certain time so we were supposed to meet them. He messaged me. Where are you? I'll pick you up. And I was traveling. I said, You know what? I'll drive and we'll meet there. I've completely forgot at this point about the lawsuit. He said, Uh, no, we'll get to that so much. No. I said you're right. So I said, Okay, you pick me up and I will go together. So he reminded me This is no script. He picks me up in the most his famous Bugatti. What color's your Bugatti so we go to a masjid. And it's just after Isha, I think 30 minutes after Isha. So it's kind of quiet. People pray to Gemma and at least there's two guys in there.

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

Some local law workers or staff from the mall is connected to a mall.

00:09:05--> 00:09:41

So I said, Okay, he's all kind of and I said, you have to have a ablution when we pray. It's called What do you clean? Because you have showers anyway. So walk in. I said, Okay, let's pray. He goes, Yeah, so you don't mind. So I obviously on the video, people are saying there's a gap. Obviously the brothers first time so yeah, I said, Why me? So obviously, you make these things happen. And I just said, Look, try and focus looking downwards. I'm going to do the salons just, I'll pray for us. There's some things you won't know I'll try and do it whispering it in such that which is not normal, but just try and repeat that. And then at the end, I'll turn to the right shoulder say

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

salaam to one angel than the left shoulder and then we've prayed. So we need to Nephal then again, I thought you know what, let's film this. I said you know why? Because you shot I said, Yeah, let's film it because he goes people will say a suppressor doesn't matter. I said I'm gonna film it because I just think you get so much stick. Let's put this up there to show it

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

influence young Muslim people who follow you. Too many kids want to be rappers too many kids want to be a gangster. Let's put something positive from someone they look up to. So there's a young cleaner or someone I said, Please, can you record this? So he held it with a two more novel and investor video, which went viral. And I said, I'm gonna post this you don't want he does not want to go ahead, because you show us show us about, I've got a feeling this is gonna blow up. And I said, but it's for good reasons. I said, sometimes social media can be used in a productive way. And in my opinion, there's many

00:10:34--> 00:11:10

many opinions on this. Oh, why did you do it? You shouldn't be recording yourself. Look, for me. Social media is such a powerful tool and I like yourself. People want you to connect to the younger generation people like yourself like me like annotate. You can't just have 75 year old Imams given speeches they can't relate to them well, because you've got to use different angles and without rotate You're so popular. Really like from that it just a lot. I had people messaging me we were in tears watching this word crying thank you so much. You hit us. Brother sent to me, you know, I feel ashamed to pray. I'm always out doing this. And that to watch him pray makes made me feel ashamed

00:11:10--> 00:11:23

that I'm gonna go too much now. So it is what we want. And the next day obviously went viral. And I saw reposts from YouTube channels and things like that. And yeah, all of a sudden, people think, oh, mostly, I'm not a

00:11:24--> 00:12:02

scholar. I'm another brother. I'm trying to protect myself. Also, you know, at what point in your life did you start to turn to take like more serious asking the crucial questions. What's the purpose of life? Why am I here? At what point in your life? Did you really start to take Islam more more serious? Honestly, I'll give respect to my mother. She raised me a humbler in a good way. I've never dealt with an alcohol, drugs. But of course, I wasn't practicing. Do other activities, which are frowned upon, but I always was God fearing but and I wasn't praying five times. But call me a German Muslim, as you say, and I do the fast Ramadan and never miss a fires. But it was only in

00:12:02--> 00:12:14

these times, I always think here tomorrow. But then when I had children, I'd always be around the dean. I'd always watch brothers. I'd go to speakers court I'd speak to brothers and enjoy that I read a lot but I thought

00:12:16--> 00:12:57

I'm not like I'd wake up to watch a UFC at 5am Imagine not Fajr and one day when I had kids, like I always wanted children and I could live I have children. And I pray to Allah and things like this. And I had a few circumstances in my life. I thought about trials and tribulations were at that time it was the lowest point of my life. I turned ollie to the career nothing could help money. People your so called friends run away. Local big man local tough guys local influences. No one can help. So I prayed five times I prayed all this not only five times Sama knuffel. And I did 100 And I remember one of my brothers champion and told me that he sent me some quote about Touchwood there's

00:12:57--> 00:13:21

a quote or a hadith how it is like a target. It's like an arrow that never misses a target. I was doing the work after after the hour before Maghrib on a Friday, I was doing everything and I really got into it. And then I went to Omaha as well. And everything just clicked and Subhanallah what I used to pray for the 100 while I hate what I used to pray for this image, exactly. I looked back months later it was there.

00:13:22--> 00:13:25

It's like just the power of the creation. It's like Allah

00:13:27--> 00:13:45

answered my two hours because our prayers because he's made me so my intention. And I made a promise suffer. I know people say you cannot do that. But I promise I'll try my best to this day. I will never ever, knowingly go off the path like for this day once I'm going to make sure I do my best as a Muslim. However, I can never miss slightly since then.

00:13:46--> 00:14:21

God forbid if one or once in a month if I've overslept on my alarm, or whatever happens. I literally my days ruined. So it took me time. And I've been on this and since then, like I'm trying to speak to a brothers around me people in the gym, the younger generation look up to me. If we have WhatsApp groups, I'm kind of like the matawa they don't send certain pictures. I tell them listen, pray, do this while you're not praying. If they're all around me, so I'm praying Come on, do that. Doo doo doo let's jump in. And it helps a lot of guys and a lot of people have started following suit praying as well. We've had a few new revert. So for me, like around agile when he saw that, that I

00:14:21--> 00:14:29

don't joke in a certain way. If Salah comes, I'll walk out of a meeting, whether it's a government building, wherever I'll pray on the street, I'll pray the corner

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

to he says you know what I respect I respect someone who's with their religion or faith rather than a guy who will try and press someone to not be with it. So he's like that he's, as you know, he's a madman. He's not a guy who's very influenced by others, he'll speak his mind. And the problem you get with a lot of Muslims will be is that it will be like this. We love you. We love what you say. But it's a lot of time they'd rather sit there and take pictures than you know. So in life, we only have to impress one person or one ncns the creation and the rest. As you know

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

And I've got that point in my life where I used to be vain and I want to look like this I want to be the strongest ego. So when you get close to Allah, you have more patience Saba, less ego, you don't back by you, your whole character changes to the point I think I've watched too soft, too soft around my kitchen I've become in a nice way you know, so I have aggression problems and this and that. But so far the power of alliances, like as we're discussing is 2022 in November, social media on a peak, and we're sitting on a in different countries discussing Islam. So it just goes to show that miracle of this beautiful religion that you're in this world I mean, this world we're around so

00:15:42--> 00:16:19

there has been nothing will change nothing will divert as you could I said to Andrew Tate once I said you could put a billion dollars to a real Muslim any Muslim whether he's praying or not a billion dollars cash and say denounce Islam and 99% will never do it. But you could add to any other reason they went for a billion dollars and that's a lot of money cash, because no one will do it. So whether we sin or not, or whether people off the path that's their belief we have and that's something you that's a miracle I guess final revelation you know, that's beautiful to see you know, someone who's not ashamed to be one who is representing his Dean and not shying away people talk

00:16:19--> 00:16:43

about football, basketball, UFC, everything under the sun you know conversations that lead here there anywhere but you know, you're bringing up you know, proud to go ahead and talk about the way of life that the crater set down for all of mankind. And it's it's really nice to see that there's a video here also, I wanted to share did you guys walk into Institute of Education here last year, you know, as well as I told him once you're with us and his brother

00:16:44--> 00:16:55

invited after that we went viral. were invited by them listening this is kind of the Minister of week Ministry of Sport Ministry of acacia there's nothing about religion but a little bit of

00:16:57--> 00:17:00

a shake this is where we weren't here we will be giving you

00:17:01--> 00:17:40

a book of guidance how to pray and just go guys and what about brother Andrew is he gets an invitation me to my phone is nonstop everyday millionaires Captain this that businesses want to bring up he's literally like, bro, I don't want to go I really want to relax. If it's business we can discuss. But every time we've been invited to Islamic center or a masjid with our day just says what time and he goes. And you see if you see himself I can't explain. You have the aura, the sunglasses the top Gee, aggressive but when he's in these places will you see nor in his face. And it's like a relationship he relates to it and any lights up the brothers we walked into another one

00:17:41--> 00:17:55

on Flag Day last Thursday to a Muslim community center. And it's where they have speeches on revert he walked into a room. They made him stand up and ask why he reverted and you can see the faces of Wow. So this is happening. Not just this time, but this is also there's more.

00:17:56--> 00:18:37

I'll post soon it was last Thursday. And it was really nice because it was a class full of reverts, they go to learn about Islam study. Understand the five pillars regarding how'd you do Omar Hodge and I think they were learning the steps of Omar and we walked into the class and the speaker said, Brother, would you mind talking for three minutes? We got spoken. That reverse was so happy it made them feel but maybe some you know feel a bit nervous or can I do this and when they saw him they felt calm. And like I said I reverted someone in my gym. Guy who trains here last week from Holland Institute blah blah blah few questions and I'm just worried my parents you know, they're very anti

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

Islamic and different Hold on.

00:18:39--> 00:19:17

Just do it for Allah don't have to tell them for now. Just do it because tomorrow is never guaranteed. Let's just do it and step by step. And if they say things, don't argue with it, if I wasn't Muslim, I have the same ideas. Some Muslims don't have it. I said say and explained to him this is not the religion but that people are different. We can't judge on this and he felt calm he reverted in that day. He felt so good. We had dinner after so humbler? I'm not sure whether it was Andrew but since then, it has more pros and cons. Shall I put it you know? So did he end up taking his his official shahada did he take it at this institute? Or was it with you and and before that a

00:19:17--> 00:19:24

foreigner made that same day but it was privately done he did Mashallah. They're actually in UAE application for

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

for becoming a muslim. It's like a thing they do in the UAE in the UK is different. You say Shahada, and you know, you have your witnesses and Allah knows best but further he wanted they said can you send us your possible copy and we'll get this done for you. So yes, please I'd love it. So they're going to make him an official certificate of being a revert to Islam and the UAE government. So Wow. Yeah. So So part of it was a beautiful and they gave him a beautiful prayer mat, Koran, he's got guidance books, we've got a few WhatsApp groups with some well good Gallagher galleries in London and in the UAE so your show is in good hands.

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

This is not something hard to comprehend. Islam is a natural way it connects with human nature, the instinct that we're all the fitrah you know the inclination, it's not something that you have to rocket science to figure out worship the Creator, not the creation, be a good human being, you know live upon these morals that God Almighty Allah is setting then we have the living miracle the Quran if anyone is sincere, takes analytical scientific approach comes at it sincerely, and they're asking to be guided by the Creator. They're going to see the truth just like Andrew taped it. It's very straightforward. It's not like you're trying to convince someone that God is a man or that you know,

00:20:36--> 00:20:59

some of these strange beliefs that are out there, these manmade religions, Islam is clear is pristine, the towhee the pure monotheism is something that's easy to digest. And is and I think, we'll hear respects a lot was, like you said, how Islam doesn't bend its rules. We don't try and adapt to society, we have our set ways. And that's, it's timeless, yes, we respect the laws of the land as a public toilet.

00:21:00--> 00:21:05

If anything is going to influence our religion, then we separate so I like other religions, like

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

obviously, his delivery is a little bit different. But he says things like

00:21:10--> 00:21:23

having a trench or Christians or priests who allow homosexuality for example, we know clear cut in certain books is forbidden. It doesn't make them not Muslim if there was a Muslim person who's obviously that doesn't make them a non Muslim means you're still in

00:21:24--> 00:21:42

control your pleasures or your desires, same as way as a Muslim who commit Zina like a man just control your desires, you know, so Islam has sets of rules and and I said to him like what UAE or in the Middle East, you could leave your phone or a pot of gold sometimes.

00:21:43--> 00:22:20

Brother in insane summer is so hot here, you have to if you cause outside, you have to leave the engine on. Imagined do a lot of I leave my engine and go into a meeting for 30 minutes in my car where the keys are inside. AC is running, and I come back, it's not touched. That goes because that all stems from Islamic kind of ruling, respect the laws of the land. And I think if the West that I'm not saying bring sure what I'm saying if they adopted some ways of that, it'd be a happier place. And he identified that he said it the West is upside down. We work hard for watches or material things. You can't even wear them in London now. People taught you so what kind of society

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

is that? You pay taxes, the police have no power.

00:22:24--> 00:23:03

People are like you said, He's literally said you can you see people fornicating on beaches and public everyone. It's just wild west. He loves to buy I like the system. He goes I like where if you have a partner or your wife, she's safe. Your kids can run in a mall, I can have my kids run around, make amends and come back. No threat of pedophilia or grooming, you know. And that all stems from Islam, whether we're not leadership, or if it's clear cut Sharia law, we're not saying that we're saying these values and rules come from Islam. And society in general is a better place. And now you're saying Dubai is the hub of the world, people are moving Westerners, all of Europe, Germany,

00:23:03--> 00:23:08

Switzerland, you name it, they all come in here is because the way of life is to better. So

00:23:10--> 00:23:46

I think that's a testament to the region itself. And it's like, in the early 2000s. Unfortunately, when that incident happened in 911, Islam was at a rock time when the law was against it. The invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, but I think it's kind of full circles come because people are fed up with the west of the moment. And it's not just Muslims, there's non Muslims there. They're fed up of agendas being pushed on their kids or society on saying a certain pronoun. They think, okay, agree a lot, but don't push on us. Like we don't come to you say become Muslim, or do this. We don't we say this is our species, we like it or not follow us. So even non Muslims, atheists, they're all on the

00:23:46--> 00:24:23

same boat. That's why I think you're seeing a big increase in reverse. And I think it will, like is promised to us in our books as well, like, Islam will always prevail. You can shut us you can say this back by saying we're backward but the message is, it's a miracle. And when someone hears the message, unless they're not educated enough, I think they'll always come to a lot because I think we're all educated people. We will study an eye at a time in my teens, I looked at all the religions I looked at everything I wanted to say, let's test so Paula, you always come back to Islam, the miracle of the Quran miracle of the Hadees the prophets sayings things he predicted which are

00:24:23--> 00:24:28

happening now. And we talked about Andrew I said imagine he said there'll be a time when

00:24:29--> 00:24:43

the Barefoot Bedouin Arab will be completed with the highest buildings imagine that those times Persia or Romans were known for buildings Arabs had nothing now get there by look at the Middle East or were prophecies Yeah. prophecies which you could not predict 15 1400 years ago so

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

all the description of the fetus or things like this inherent in the Koran is just the embryo is scary and like not scary in a good way in a when people have an open heart and are willing to listen. I don't believe there's any way to go against it in my opinion.

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

I think the only people who do have agendas or they have businesses which profit are going against it. That's the only reason why not so 100. Like, it really made me happy to see, I'd rather see a brother like Andrew become a Muslim than me having all the success in business. I'd rather give that I'd see someone like, you know, it makes me more happier because I know his influence will be key. And I just want to say one thing. I don't want everyone to say he's not going to become a Mufti or scholar overnight. He's not going to be there. So don't look to Him for Islamic doubt. And don't say, okay, he did this, because he's no twin. It's gonna take time. So a lot of people send me

00:25:34--> 00:25:51

comments and I see messages, or he has a cigar here or he's the guys who have to relax, the guy has changed from one opposite. a multimillionaire popular celebrity you call it from this to this majority of us would fail, it's not easy, you know, brother life

00:25:52--> 00:25:53

is so different.

00:25:55--> 00:26:05

And he's more claiming to be that he's just saying, I'm a Muslim, and I respect the religion so let him be step by step it will come with time and I think the only worry I have is a pressure of Muslims.

00:26:07--> 00:26:16

bombarding him with you do this wrong. I saw this video I saw this. That's the thing so but as long as we can back off and show support, I think Inshallah, I can see no problem.

00:26:17--> 00:26:34

It's interesting that I'm going to share this clip that he's already inviting people to look into Islam. You know, if you got yourself a nice Islamic wife, she wouldn't cheat on you. She'd cook for you should look after you, she wouldn't have an only fans. You know, most of the problems you're facing currently with women can be solved by Islam.

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


00:26:37--> 00:27:03

I just told you why we actually don't cheat. She'd have decency she'd cover up. She'd be God fearing. If she missed her family would also keep an eye on her. So her family would tell her to obey her husband. She want your children to look after you Islamic women to the best. They understand that the best way to serve God is to also serve their husbands. What do I get one? Well, most of your problems couldn't be solved. What what do I get Miss lamas, woman, you must become a Muslim yourself first my friend.

00:27:05--> 00:27:24

And, and being a Muslim is not easy. There's a lot to learn. It's a long journey. Even I'm not a scholar I'm learning. There's a lot to learn about how it works. And the True Word of God and the Quran and learning Arabic etc is not easy. But if you come to Dubai, you can begin the journey. And you can talk to the same people. I've talked to him and then how long did he get there for the GTT?

00:27:26--> 00:27:32

He's got a few new lingo. It's funny che Paul is his favorite Western Kpop. He doesn't say matrix as a shakedown though.

00:27:33--> 00:28:10

So that's very nice to see. He's already and he corrected the guy he said that right away the person connected with what he was saying. He said where she at? He said, No, no, you have to first become a Muslim. Yeah, we did a podcast and we spoke about we said, If a man or woman live by the values of Islam, and you respect the laws and live by that you will never have a problem marriage. Either my wife, many people will say we do we don't but if you truly live by the principles of the Quran and Sunnah, and live by that and you both respect each other, I think you'll never have a problem in life honestly, the only problems will be calamities with family or death but

00:28:11--> 00:28:30

how many of us can say we do and it's a beautiful thing the respect of a wife the respect of the husband the duties the roles, none of us really go by but if we truly do we know we cannot raise our voice our wife, she cannot do saying we cannot and then it becomes more peaceful house. The kids are happier. So in a way he's right if you live what he meant is if you live by that kind of

00:28:31--> 00:28:40

guidebook for me in life you have no problems I really truly believe you're more content whether you make money or not your content isn't as different is

00:28:41--> 00:29:07

does. Am I obeying Allah enough? Am I getting myself inshallah to heaven? Am I raising my kids that right way and this is your goal in life rather than before it will be different things and of course we want to make money and survive because want to give shelter to our family make sure they're okay and education is good but surely it changed me in a way where I don't chase materialistic things I don't care for it. I'm literally like you know in the gym t shirt shorts.

00:29:08--> 00:29:39

Or after the way I pray in my life honestly is stems around being around my family kids raising them taking my girls sometimes the drama they only three but just to let them feel it and push it just let them feel like this is our this is our beautiful way of life. I don't really like using the word religion. And so while it's a great thing for someone for me, born and raised in the UK, living in Dubai, which they call the flashiest place and I've been around you name it the Mayweather is the so called celebs I've been in this kind of lifestyle. I've seen the private jets also yachts,

00:29:40--> 00:29:56

UFC fighters I've trained with them I used to professionally fight TV I've even acted in a movie imagine with Jackie Chan, but it means nothing is is so minut and it's nothing the main then there's no feel like I was in when I can't explain when I went to Omaha Mecca the feeling of

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

praying about

00:30:00--> 00:30:17

I put my head to the floor and in complete silence with like 1000s of other people that feeling honestly, it was like walking to arena or flight times 10 My heart was pounding. And when I first saw the club for the first time, that feeling I'll never forget Subhanallah is I cannot explain it is superb.

00:30:18--> 00:30:49

If every Muslim should really every Muslim who's prayed their whole life looking at these combos on the prayer mat saw on the internet, when you first go, wow, like that changed my life forever, and inshallah I hope I'm blessed to go in many more times and do Hajj as well. There's a picture of you guys. And you mentioned you guys were with Steven Seagal. Yeah. How has he taken to Islam at all? Or have you guys had a discussion about it? We stick with it. Similarly, I know there's a stigma about him. In those Western he had a lot of

00:30:51--> 00:31:11

controversy surrounding it. But he's honestly a nice guy. Very straightforward, very old school, kind of alpha male and he respects he says, he lives in Russia, Russia, if you're gonna get a country, which is close to a Muslim state, and I don't offend anyone, I'm not saying about their political alliances. I'm saying Russian Orthodox Christians are very similar in a way

00:31:13--> 00:31:15

that households the respect they have for those ones.

00:31:17--> 00:31:52

They don't like entertaining certain kind of agendas, being pushed in a country is very, very similar. I've been to Moscow many times. So He's based in he likes that system. And he, when we speak, he agrees with everything he understands. He understands why he's Muslim, he says, I understand. I've been to the west, I've been to America, they've killed religion, they're trying to put religion in a drawer, right? And those things have molded to it. And they want basically the dollar or the market. I don't know what they're trying to push the agenda, but religion, keep it at home, keep it going out of their Christmas or their Sunday gospel, but it's not for society, whereas

00:31:53--> 00:31:58

he thinks otherwise. He respects a lot. Honestly.

00:31:59--> 00:32:03

There's not many people I've been around in my life when you speak to arrive, they don't respect.

00:32:05--> 00:32:14

There's many who even in short, I mean, Andrews brother respects it a lot. Inshallah, one day, hopefully, he's a very good guy as well himself, Tristan, very straightforward, good guy.

00:32:15--> 00:32:26

They've been raised. Well, you can see. And you never know. Because you have an older brother, who you respect and look up to as well. And they go away. I know, usually, the younger brothers kind of falling apart. So who knows. But um,

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

I think

00:32:29--> 00:33:05

what he's done is very good. For younger youth in a way, I'm not saying he's going to be a role model, because our role models should always be the Prophet peace be upon him. But these young guys who I feel feel ashamed to be Muslim want to impress too much or is prayer time, I can't pray in front of them. This girl might think I'm this or this guy. He's putting a shame to that. So that's, that's what I like. And when he sees my podcasts, whether it's the rapper six, nine, or whoever he always speaks about Islam. And yesterday, a YouTuber in UK, made some derogatory comments regarding agile, which went viral, and he replied straightaway regarding defending the religion and defending

00:33:05--> 00:33:32

Allah subhanaw taala. So, and now, after me converting to Islam, he made a piece on one of his podcasts, saying that I'm not true my conversion, and then insulted all Muslims, then the muscles blow themselves up, and I should go blow myself up, we should all blow ourselves up making racist comments about an entire religion as if that's somehow funny. Let me tell you something, my friend, and if true jority of you watching this, this is a message directly to you. There are certain times in life you need to know when to shut.

00:33:33--> 00:34:06

There are certain things which are not funny, certain things are not beyond reprisal. You don't sit and insult a man's religion, just like you don't insult a man's entire company in the people who work for him. That's one thing, but to insult my religion, and the religion of billions of people across the planet, making ignorant jokes about ourselves up thinking that's gonna go without consequence. You're gonna learn very quickly, my friend. But that was a mistake. These things I like he slept on it, he doesn't like it. So he takes it to heart which is a sign you know, beautiful. So there's one key thing I want to take away from this. I love how you and that's trying to set a good

00:34:06--> 00:34:39

example as far as never leaving the salon, we know as Muslims, that's the most important thing right after the shahada, La ilaha illa Allah that has nothing worthy of worship except the Creator of the heavens, the earth, Muhammad is the messenger and then you start making this a lot praying just like Jesus prayed and although the prophets that's the way they humbled themselves, and they pray to the Creator to heavens and the earth, and you are holding on firmly to that, so inshallah the young Chabad, the young ones out there and people who are scared, right, they have this inferiority complex, they can see someone like you, who's in a position around a lot of different famous people.

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

And wherever you're at, you're at a meeting, it's time to make a lot, you're out of that meeting and you're going to make a loss and Shala is considered another great example. And what you just said about making this, this overload is hudge that you are at the power that so this can motivate some people also to to jump on this cool I mean, my next thing i

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

I want to take Andrew to do an MRI. That's the next goal right now. See things it's no excuse, but it's very difficult. The brother can't drive somewhere. If they spot his car with flogged, came to the gym, he can't leave malls. And I've never experienced this. I'm not like this but I've heard Habib and many guys come around but I've never seen this in a way scary so his life has totally changed and before he revised so he cannot really experience some things in public so for example, if go to Jomar or as a machine you have to really run out and he looks rude people think is arrogance is not getting the car because when 100 Fewer people want a picture, it becomes commotion.

00:35:40--> 00:35:47

A lot of people go oh, he's really not really it's just I'm the ones trying to force him so when it comes out a little bit I'd love to take him on Rob because

00:35:48--> 00:36:03

obviously people recognize it could get a little ridiculous but inshallah that's the goal and also like you said about salah, the only difference between us and non Muslims Salah is you know so I mean, without that you are nothing and it keeps you in check when you pray.

00:36:04--> 00:36:18

The more you pray, you've got what you you tend to not want to do something Jaime said I've got that feel guilty. And to the youngsters out there, there's nothing to be ashamed of, we should be proud of what we are that beautiful nation. And if you want to role model, read the stories of the Prophet peace report, read the source of the Sahaba

00:36:20--> 00:36:54

the other prophets they will make the hairs on your neck. Warriors we are the Caliban will lead stories of him has an ally. I mean, when they truly know this, you will not want another role model and calamities whatever. When you read the stories I used to have stress. And my brother said, read about profit are you and then you'll see what pressures you have. And I said oh my god, I'm I'm stressed about this and profitable he went through or each profit. That's calamities they went a whole week, they will get tortured for spreading the message. So we could be where we are. And we're in a world where we're not going to be tortured. If you were to prey on a middle of Times Square, no

00:36:54--> 00:37:03

one's gonna say anything to you. And you're in the USA. I could go in the middle of Hyde Park London, no one says anything. We have no excuse. Most business in the West, they'll say okay, you can have timeout.

00:37:04--> 00:37:36

So there's no excuse. We cannot say a word. We're in some communist state of the early 80s. In Russia, there's no excuse. So as Muslims, if you truly are Muslim, and I don't want to sound like a hypocrite, but if you're not praying, why why do you claim like, at least to the basics, that we're not saying to be a dowry? Or do the basics pray if you respect our mothers, we respect our grandmothers our fathers, why they gave us birth? What about the Creator who created them gave us heavens, the earth, these eyes, his nose, his lips, our bodies?

00:37:37--> 00:38:04

Everything we can't even give five minutes of our day. So that's what we used to make me think you know, I'd wake up for UFC but I couldn't live my quote cover for Fajr so now you know support I've become a body clock I don't even need alarm really. I know when and it just naturally I wake up so a humble I hope inshallah I'm always on the path and to the end of my days, it's and I hope my kids follow suit and inshallah I think we all I hope we all

00:38:06--> 00:38:45

stay on that path because for me, it's just it's the truth and we don't understand the blessing we were to disguise myself I can't talk also by the seductions of the West and these tools and movies or whatever, but we understand we're here for a test and the test is to inshallah get into Jonathan, what we'll have that will flatten what we think is good here. And when you truly understand Islam and read you'll see that there's nothing else that matters. That's so beautiful, all this you know, putting things in perspective I want to thank you and it reminds me of the Hadith where the prophet Muhammad Salah salaam he said just guiding one person to the deen is better than everything in this

00:38:45--> 00:39:01

dunya So may God Almighty Allah rewards you for helping to facilitate this and and continue to share the message like you've been doing it's amazing. And this is great advice for the people out there listening and look forward to inshallah meeting with you when they soon either show

00:39:02--> 00:39:17

anytime come to the bar with pleasure will hold a seminar anytime you want your family, please. It's our pleasure and inshallah I love to come there and hopefully, things have calmed down will bring brother Andrew to whatever good to catch up. That's beautiful. I look forward to it. Thank you, brother. Exactly.

00:39:19--> 00:39:40

We've been told they're out to kill us all. So I'm naked brothers and sisters. We went to the streets to ask Americans about Islam. Here's what they said. Do you know anything about Islam? No. Do you know anything about Islam? No. Sadly, do you know anything about Islam? Not really. Do you know anything about Islam?

No, sorry. You know what Islam means? Islam? No, we've been told that they're out to kill us all. That's what you been told that Muslims are out to kill you. Oh,

00:39:56--> 00:40:00
