00:00:00--> 00:00:11

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salam aleikum, welcome to the deen show. We got lots to talk about. Did you know that Princess Diana was almost on her way to accepting Islam? Was she or is this just conspiracy theory?

00:00:15--> 00:00:51

Prince Harry says his mother was Chas to death while in a relationship with someone who wasn't white. We're not conspiracy theorists. But we have a guest of ours coming up who's uncovered some interesting facts. We also have the Russian president defending Prophet Mohammed is this reality? There is an insult against Prophet Muhammad. Do you think this is about exercising your freedom of creativity? I don't think so. Our next guest has something to say about this and Lewis Hamilton who's he there and restrictions from from people from being themselves and I don't believe in that.

00:00:53--> 00:01:27

Religions can change, Religions can change. roles can change rulers can change those things they have the power to I guess he's someone who's calling people trying to call people away from Islam and towards the ABC or it was at the alphabet movement. That and also finally Novak Djokovic. novac Salama Lee who and Bosnia ters attacked and shot at a mosque in the town of Janya. Police in Brcko district also had their hands full while across the border in Serbia's pre boy and Novi Pazar. There were threats of ethnic violence.

00:01:30--> 00:01:39

Trying to prevent another genocide we'll be talking about all this with our next guest, zhi Shan. Ali, let's hear what he has to say from smile to Jenna.

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

This is the

00:01:59--> 00:02:21

salam alaikum, my brother How you doing? walakum wa salam ala barakaatuh. Eddie, how's it going? My bro and $100 Nene. Nice to connect with you Marcel love bro. The legend himself. Show bro, I was speaking to somebody and I was like, you know, I'm gonna be going and Dean show. And he was like,

00:02:22--> 00:02:43

I haven't heard that. I was like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. How is that even possible? When YouTube was just when we had a small Muslim community? There used to be a channel called I think Khalifa clothing. And they used to host your show from back back in the days. Only the Oh, geez. No, the show.

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

On the show. I've made it

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

a YouTube my brother. So what do you think? The topics? Are you up for it? Have you heard

00:02:57--> 00:03:32

it? So let's just the tip of the iceberg. My approach that is just the tip of the iceberg. So I started off with this. You know, many people it was, you know, something that was talked about Princess Diana, she had the car accident. And you uncovered some things. Can you talk to us about those things that you uncover that she was possibly potentially looking into accepting Islam? Is that true? Yeah. So a couple of days ago, I would say it's approximately been a week now on the Daily Mail, which I mean, it's been nicknamed the daily fail, but

00:03:33--> 00:04:16

it normally gives stories that are, you know, bias towards Muslims and Islam, but they printed the story. Like I said, it's only been a week. And in the story, they uncovered that Diana, on one of the flights went to one of the oldest royal photographers. Apparently he's Muslim as well. And he was married to a Christian lady. So Diana, because she was in love with a Muslim called hast not Han. So she wanted to know if it was possible, and what the kind of dynamic would be for Muslim to marry a Christian and also find out about this religion as well. Because even the royal family

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

then the no stranger to Muslims and Islam, Queen Victoria.

00:04:22--> 00:05:00

She, you know, had one of her kind of people that were close to her. It was somebody called Abdelkarim. And she was very fond of Abdelkarim to such a degree that there is a book written called Victorian Abdal and Hollywood's even made a movie about that as well. So that was Queen Victoria, the queen, the current Queen Elizabeth the Second. Apparently they say that she's somehow the lineage is linked to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So all of these are in mainstream media.

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

you Google it and it will come on mainstream media. It's not, you know, conspiratorial Boris's. I think great grandfather. Apparently he had memorized the Quran as well. And Boris being the bumbling buffoon that he is because of the comments that he made against Nick RVs calling them letter boxes and with black people calling them you know, saying that they have watermelon smiles. I mean, all this is documented, so to kind of take himself out of the hole, he kind of latched on to that and said, Yeah, my, my great grandfather is either grandfather or great grandfather. He was a half half east of the Quran. So but I mean, Boris that doesn't give you a gal of jail free card, you still

00:05:42--> 00:05:57

have to be responsible with your words. So yeah, with Diana, she was very fond of this man call has not Han and because of that she wanted to look into Islam and because of her later relationship with somebody called Dodie Alpha head.

00:05:58--> 00:06:24

Some say walau alum maybe she did even take the Shahada. Some even said that she she did end up taking the Shahada. Yeah, because the fact that she was with us not Han, and then afterwards with Dodi al forehead, and both of these are you know, they have I mean, has not gone from Pakistan Dodi Alpha head, they've got Egyptian links. And they are affiliated with Islam. And plus,

00:06:25--> 00:07:11

it was very difficult for her like the paparazzi really did not make life easy. In fact, that was one of the reason reasons has not Han said, Look, I can't do this because the paparazzi some of them were absolutely absolutely obsessed with her. Wherever they would see her. They say, if you had Diana on your newspaper on the front cover, your sales would go up 25%. And there's one clip in that documentary last 100 days of Diana, she as soon as she got in the car, she put her head down, and one of the photographers goes, put your effing head back up because you are putting my kids through college and paying for my mortgage. So this is a news reporter saying that he Yeah, yeah. Because a

00:07:11--> 00:07:58

lot of like, back in the days like these guys would be savage. Like even now some degree, I would say hasn't changed much. But in those days, they would be absolute savages. And Diana, I mean, some say like, that's the reason. Prince Harry has left the royal home with Megan Markel, because he didn't want a repeat of what happened to his mother to happen now to his wife as well. So yeah, the royal family is no stranger to Islam. In fact, the British Empire ruled India or India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, it was all known as Hindustan roulette for approximately 200 years. And some of the crimes and some of the things that would happen there. It's ridiculous. I mean, one good book is by

00:07:58--> 00:08:14

Shashi Tharoor, I think he calls the inglorious Empire, which is quite interesting. I mean, yeah, a lot of a lot of stuff happened there. And the Brits are well aware of this religion. Did she actually also meet his mother? And she was,

00:08:15--> 00:09:02

like, six months before she would be writing to the grandmother, and under the pretense of visiting Pakistan and visiting our friends Imran Khan, who's now the President of Pakistan and his wife Jemima Han. Now obviously the separated but yes, she went there. And actually, there's pictures where you can see that she she visited their home and has not done later later interview. Because he was very tight lipped. He kept her private matters private didn't sell the stories like even Diana's mother did she sell she sold one of the stories to Hello magazine. And they had a turbulent kind of past as well and has not haunted Yeah, the family was was surprised. I mean, what would bring a

00:09:02--> 00:09:33

princess here? Because even if you look at has not Han, he's not your typical kind of dreamy princess. No, he's large build and, you know, had a mustache and didn't really look after himself really? Well. I mean, one of our Butler says that he even you know, lived in a I mean, he called it a dirty a dirty flat, and Diana would go there and I in his clothes, and this to me, really got to me when when he then pauses and he goes, she didn't even iron her own clothes.

00:09:34--> 00:09:55

So these are all from that documentary last 100 days of Diana which was made by ABC, ABC News I mean, they've got their own kind of they have this documentary has some of these interesting discoveries and facts in this documentary that you can go check up. Yes, exactly. So it's not like I'm just picking out my pocket or stuff like that. It's this is mainstream information.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

Has not Han is is not a lot of people have

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

As you guys will assume that well, why is he took my dough deified Dodi al FIDE she was only with him for about 30 days. Now people don't know that, but it has not gone. That was that relationship was for for two years. Wait, who's the the one you just mentioned? Dodi Yeah, so Dodi is the one that she died with in the car. And that was her latest relationship. And that's the one most of your viewers will be familiar with has not gone is only known by people who actually following Diana's life. People that only look towards the end, they'll only be familiar with Dodie. But those who actually know her from before, like a butler kind of friends. They know about us now Tiana in that

00:10:45--> 00:10:55

documentary. Yeah, they? Dodi was another Muslim. Yeah, Dodi was another Muslim. Yeah.

00:10:56--> 00:11:09

But yeah, his father, at that time used to own one of the biggest stores here in the UK called Harrods, which a lot of celebrities come to. And he had a very high rank

00:11:10--> 00:11:13

here, you know, in, in the UK as well.

00:11:15--> 00:11:27

And this, the other con, he was actually a heart surgeon. Correct? Yeah, exactly. Some people say that. Well, that could be the reason speaking to a

00:11:29--> 00:11:36

psycho analyst. And he was saying it's, it's actually very interesting with what you've said, she had a traumatic past.

00:11:37--> 00:11:56

Obviously, she broke her heart. And she fell for somebody who men's hearts. So hey, you have somebody with a broken heart. And she, she's going to somebody who, you know, men's hearts. And also what she noticed about him was the fact that he didn't necessarily recognize her in the hospital straightaway.

00:11:57--> 00:12:35

She, you know, saw him and thought he was handsome. He didn't know her. So here was something that was also interesting that hang on a minute, everybody knows me. How can they not know me this? How can this individual not know me? And even afterwards, like he wasn't fanboying her? So in that sense, you know, that really fascinated me? Of course, it's it's worth saying that, you know, it's, you know, seeing people outside of wedlock is haram, you know, we don't condone it, it's not permissible. But again, we're low alum, isn't it? We're just talking about

00:12:36--> 00:13:12

from a historical kind of context and Diana's fascination with, with the people from Muslim countries and off the religion. We're not saying for one second, that these sorts of relationship relationships are permissible and stuff like that, but what we are seeing is the fascination of the British Empire with this religion and with people that have you know, remnants or even remnants that have because look has not Han even if he was not a practicing Muslim, even as a cultural Muslim, you adopt the,

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

the kind of habits and the the practices and the rituals of the face. So even that for heart kind of

00:13:22--> 00:13:27

can be drawn towards that. It's something that of course, were drawing your attention towards.

00:13:28--> 00:13:57

Yeah, one last thing before we go on to the next part, is that I mean, I don't think for anybody who looks into the shahada themselves, they look at because naturally if someone's inclined towards you, and now she went towards his family, they want to know more about you, but then what do you connect it to? So she connected him to Islam, she's looking more into Islam, and if a person is sincere, and they are looking for the truth, or even if they end up looking at Islam, and they got a good heart, I mean,

00:13:58--> 00:14:24

amazing things happen like the shahada, just acknowledging that there is one and only one crater that I'm going to worship this crater alone without associates or partners, you know, the, the beautiful, pure monotheism so when someone looks into what is the Shahada? What is Islam naturally, you know, if your fitrah if your innate, this position is not totally covered, it's like, open right, and you're searching for some sort of truth. It's gonna you're gonna connect to it.

00:14:25--> 00:14:59

Yeah, 100 100% Eddie, and the thing is, it is very interesting that you mentioned innate disposition, because there's, there's a very expensive study done by an people of Muhammad the job will be familiar with this name, Justin Barrett of Oxford University. And he says that faith is innate. Yeah, belief in one God is innate to us. We don't use this to prove that there's a God. But we say that, you know, this does raise a few question marks. How is it not innate for us to believe in the tooth fairy or, you know, a Green Goblin, but it is to believe in

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

In a god a necessary being. Yeah, the prime mover, the first cause wherever you want to call it. Yeah, you've got big philosophers that don't have a problem with this yet big, big philosophers that don't have a problem with this. And you're talking about, you know, the shahada and the pure monotheism. And that's exactly what drew other people like Winston Churchill, you can check out these and the telegraph or the Guardian, there's articles to suggest that his family was worried that he would become Muslim. Wow. Because, look, the British Empire. It's been spent time in India for 200 years. And the Muslims are very instrumental in Hindustan, and, you know, granting it

00:15:47--> 00:16:34

freedom from the tyranny of the British, and seeing these people fight and defend with their lives, it is bound to awaken something like what is driving these people? What is driving these people? And it's, you know, the more you look into it, then you look into World War Two and, you know, the contribution of the Muslims and, you know, it's absolutely endless. It's endless, the Muslim contribution, and even when you look at inventions, you know, one of my teacher said, if you look at anything significant, that we enjoy today carries a Muslim somewhere behind that invention. You look at optics. You got a mill, Haytham. Yeah, you look at chemistry, amalgamation crystallization, you

00:16:34--> 00:16:59

know, all of these, you know, processes. You got a job Edna Hayyan. Yeah, the first university, Fatima Alfieri. And the list goes on the first solo flyer above significant NAS and the list goes on. The contribution Muslims have made, unfortunately, and sadly, it's not mentioned as much. However,

00:17:00--> 00:17:43

once if a person is sincere, like you said, the more you look into Islam, the more you are likely to think so the Hon Allah. Yeah, that means Glory be to Allah. Like, this is something ajeeb and that's what happened at time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when the Quran was recited, and non Muslims are the policies of the time would innately fall into prostration. Because that's what it is. And that's, you know, what you do wonderfully as well and you emphasize this, look into Islam without the biases and the peripheries attached to it. Look into it yourself. Pick up the Quran yourself. Watch the deen show what smiled to Jenna watch Muslims explaining this religion. And you will see it

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

will resonate with you, God willing.

00:17:46--> 00:18:28

And the next part is, once you understand this pure monotheism, and the part of the shahada is the Accepting of the last and final messenger. And you actually you talk about, you've talked about how the Russian president was also what was he doing? He was talking about Prophet Muhammad was he was defending him or what was the whole situation with that? Yeah, what was brilliant idea about that was that normally when it comes to a non Muslim or Western leaders, or even non Muslim leaders have a higher rank, unfortunately, they they stay very tight lipped when it comes to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, you got people like Macron they will not allow people to criticize him. And

00:18:28--> 00:19:25

people be jailed or, you know, disrespect the flag, or disrespect the liberal values. However, when it comes to, you know, respecting a let's face it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, you know, absolutely, you know, unique, absolutely unique individual. And this there's one quote that really stands out to me it was his by Alphonse de Lamartine is a French writer and he goes, if greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who would dare to compare any great man in modern history to Muhammad? So the this is one quote of a non Muslim so Putin or Putin said was, I don't think this is freedom of speech, insulting

00:19:25--> 00:20:00

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam it Peace Be Upon Him is not freedom of speech, because it will then just cause other people to become angry. And then of course, it becomes a cyclical thing. So that was that was really nice to hear. Yeah, and Inshallah, you know, he understands, and some of this sort of stuff, you know, seeps into his heart and, you know, because there's a lot happening in Syria as well. And even with that video is interesting, you know, people are saying, look, but he's doing this in Syria. Look, of course, you know, we condemn what's going on in Syria that they are our brothers and sisters.

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

This. However, what we're taking this comment on this point of is we're not saying that just because, you know, we're acknowledging this, we're acknowledging everything else that he does know that not at all. We're not saying that we're not white washing anything, yet people need to be held accountable for what they are doing, especially when they are killing innocent people. However, when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the only leader in modern times that has defended the Prophet on such a large platform and a scale and for that 100 Lilla. We are grateful. Yeah, we are, we are grateful. And to be and to be fair, Eddie, I was actually speaking to Muhammad,

00:20:40--> 00:21:20

the job we were doing, we were just talking and discussing sometimes what happens ideas people say, How do you know, at the no Mohammed even existed might add the you know? And then we say, that's actually an interesting question. But you can say that about Jesus, peace be upon him, Moses, peace be upon him. But you this is a claim you cannot say about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Why? Because we have independent, non Muslim sources that had been dated to the seventh century that verify that the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed an individual

00:21:21--> 00:22:13

living at that time. Yeah, and it coincides with certain dates and events that took place. And this you can find this in a book called forbidden prophecies by Abu Zakaria and the three sources both to the 77th century. First one is a Nestorian Chronicle. The second one is called the dock. Trina, J. Kirby, new PR, Baptists RT. And the third one is Bishop severes, of the house of bagra Tunis. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is somebody that is unique, somebody that is appreciated for his, you know, completeness, as a human being. And that is why he is the only one worthy of being called the final messenger hand selected by Allah subhanaw taala an example for us. Were told in

00:22:13--> 00:23:00

exams, you can't copy somebody, and people say, Allah, why is God put me in the situation may Attano, why was happening? Allah said, No problem. I'll give you somebody, and you can copy him, copy him in an exam. So this exam, Allah is permitting us to copy the prophet, and we will pass this exam, no problem in sha Allah, and look at the life of the prophet when you read his Syrah. You know, something as small as how we even go to the toilet, how we cleanse ourselves, how we speak to our parents, you know, how we groom ourselves, such details such precision. And this, if this is not cognizant of the truthfulness, and the validity of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, I don't know why

00:23:00--> 00:23:31

is to be honest. And there you go, that's what she would have accepted that there's nothing worthy of worship except the Creator God Almighty, Allah and Muhammad who you're just talking about peace and blessings be upon him is the last and final messenger sent to mankind. That'd be the shahada, and automatically accept Jesus, Moses, Abraham, all the preceding messengers that came before him with the same message of Islam submission to the Creator, not the creation, easy to comprehend, easy to understand, easy to accept, if you're sincere, and you're looking for the truth. Now, tell me here, we just want to touch upon this before we get into what I really want to talk about what's

00:23:31--> 00:23:46

been really on my mind. Well, let's just touch upon this Lewis Hamilton. I don't really know much about him. You talked about him. And it seemed like he was someone who was trying to he was trying to get people away from Islam and towards this. I would just say ABC Alphabet movement.

00:23:47--> 00:24:40

So the Lewis Hamilton is a very famous Formula One Grand Prix driver. He he is actually a racer for Mercedes. And he is known for coming pole position. Right at the top is fantastic, amazing. But when it came to LGBT movement, that's where he messed up. Yeah, they were in Saudi. And in Saudi Of course, there was pressure from other people. Look, this is what they do. This is this, this is that. And then he gave the impression that Islam, amongst other religions should change to validate the LGBT Q movement. Now, firstly, this goes against freedom of speech. Yeah, this goes against freedom of religion, freedom of thinking, why should you change your religion to LGBTQ, which let's

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

face it, there is very little evidence supporting it. Yet you just they have a very strong lobby and because of that, it's being enforced and Hollywood and the likes, but all it is, is saying that look, we should be able to love whoever we want. Say, Okay, you're able to love whoever you want. Then what about pedophiles? Are you okay with that? No, no.

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

I don't know when okay with pedophiles, but you can love whoever you want. Okay, then can I love animals? No, no, no, that's that's not right. That's not right. Right. So you can't love animals. Okay, then. Can you love your parents? Yeah, you can love you. Can you have relationship with your parents? No, no, you can't. Why if you were in protection,

00:25:20--> 00:26:03

that follows the liberal framework cannot categorically say, sleeping with your own brother, sister, mother, father, if you were in contraception, if you're above the age of consent is wrong. They simply cannot say that. And that's why the likes of Lawrence Krauss, in his debate with Hamza Sottsass was unable to say it was wrong. Richard Dawkins, when asked the same question, couldn't say it was wrong. Even a pious who was asked he couldn't say it was wrong, either. I mean, is this what you're calling us towards way three year old children? You know, Tavistock is one of the LGBT clinics here in the UK, they have entrance, and they're allowing kids as young as three to switch

00:26:03--> 00:26:24

genders. I mean, all that is going on. And then you have the average population that have to pay their taxpayers money towards this, I don't understand how is this freedom of speech, if I'm paying for this, I'm being forced to pay for this. If I don't pay for this, I can be held liable. I can be imprisoned and sanctioned.

00:26:25--> 00:27:08

I honestly don't know where freedom of speech has gone. And when you look at LGBT will, which has his roots and liberalism, you cannot prove it from first principles. It's as simple as that. You look at where it goes. John Stuart Mill, Jeremy Bentham, Bentham, his issues with the harm principle issues, but when you look at Islam, its objective, harm principle is subjective. It's up to you, whatever you want to do, if the pleasure outweighs the pain, good, if the pain outweighs the pleasure, bad, but in some situations, that doesn't work here. What if you're in a boxing ring? What if you're, you know, did? Yeah, what if you're working out? It doesn't work there. So that's, that's

00:27:08--> 00:27:51

what we're saying. Come to the objective law set by your Creator, who knows you who knows your society? Because even when it comes to human rights and stuff like that, yes, we're bashed over the heads with it. And Islam has no issue with it. But we're seeing with human rights should come human responsibilities. Yeah. A human rights is all about what you're owed me, me, me, me, me. But Islam says, What about Mother's rights? Tell me one human rights article that talks about Mother's rights. It doesn't. And that's all Islam is saying. Be just you talking about abortion? Yeah, my choice. My choice. We're about the father's choice. Well, what the grandfather's choice? Yeah, so you have to

00:27:51--> 00:28:17

take the whole. So on the face of it, it looks very good. But when you probe into it, you realize there's so many contradictions and inconsistency. And that's why it's clear it is not from Allah, not from the God who has created us, because his law is something which is all encompassing, we have the pixel, he has the picture. Beautiful. Mashallah. Are you familiar with Bosnia?

00:28:19--> 00:28:47

Yeah, that's definitely a, a dark kind of cloud, over our history, and something that the Muslims, Bosnia is one of those countries as soon as it's mentioned, they just, you know, evoke something within us that, you know, reminds us of a period of sadness. And, you know, of, over time, the OMA was incredibly weak. And it's unfortunate and sad that, you know, Bosnia yet again, is in the firing line.

00:28:49--> 00:29:07

And that's why sometimes, Edie you know, when people talk about Yeah, you know, we need to be doing this and we need to be there speaking out speaking. Why is nobody speaking out against Bosnia? And what's going on there? Why is nobody speaking out against what's going on in Avani? Stan? Yeah, I just saw you know, Eddie, today I saw

00:29:09--> 00:29:16

it. This was on Sky News. Yeah. And I screenshotted this, because it is absolutely appalling.

00:29:17--> 00:29:26

And I read the headline, too. This is the headline. Yeah. It says, well, one of the headlines is

00:29:27--> 00:29:35

parents sell children and kidneys to feed starving families. SubhanAllah. And the other one is,

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

UK pledges to release more aid of the grave warning, a million children could die. Now in all these articles when you scroll down, this is not because of the terrifying terrible Taliban. This is because banks, bank accounts and assets have been frozen. Afghans cannot act

00:30:00--> 00:30:48

As these accounts, and because of this, they are literally on the brink of starvation. This and they can't access what accounts, their accounts, your bank accounts, they cannot access the money. It's not about them needing aid, the money that they have. They cannot access they have. Why can't they access the accounts? It's been frozen. Why is it frozen? by the likes of America? In fact? Yeah, they call it sanction. Yeah, I've run is done has been sanctioned. Yeah, this, this has happened to Venezuela. This has happened to Iraq. This is called economic warfare. Yeah, they've left Afghanistan, but now they're economically depriving them. And you notice, even when you get a chance

00:30:48--> 00:31:31

to read these news articles, you see, it's only towards the last quarter, they'll tell you about the sanctions. So the first record was about the terrifying terrible Taliban and what they're doing. But the reality of it comes towards the end, release the assets, release the money, let them use their own money. And what it and you know what, Eddie, they're calling it collective punishment. That's what the political commentators are saying that you're punishing the people because of you your problem with the Taliban. Yeah. And that's the thing. You know, when it comes to the Ukraine, Eddie, they're very quick EAA of Britain. We were pledging, yeah, France. Were pledging. Yeah. Why? Because

00:31:31--> 00:32:16

Russia is involved by Bosnia. You've got all that going on in Bosnia, Kashmir, you got all that going in Kashmir? And with the weekers. You've got all that going on. But no, no, no, they're not. We're just going to, you know, sit back. What happened to human rights there? What happened to freedom of speech to there? It seems that it's only used when it seems to be convenient. It's a tool. Yeah. And we fall for it again, and again. And I hope Bosnia is not a repeat of what happened before. And our hope the OMA wises up to what is going on. And I'm glad you brought it up. Because, unfortunately, sadly, we can't just rely on the 10 o'clock news to give us information about these,

00:32:16--> 00:32:56

we actually have to sit as a family and look at alternative media to give our kids a big understanding. I mean, they're about to enter a meta verse. I mean, they're not even going to be part of the reality. So if they're going to enter this, it's your duty not to moan and just stick them in a madrasa somewhere and hope that the teacher will teach them everything in anything they need to know know, the first madressa of the children is the home and that we need to stop. I want to get your reaction to this. You heard me mention this famous tennis player. He's from the actual area there in Serbia, his name is Novak Djokovic, so we were trying to get because you know how this

00:32:56--> 00:33:31

story goes as soon as someone is affiliated, you know, with some extreme elements some stream group you know, he's question he's called to condemn. So now they're these events are happening. And usually you want to get ahead of it create awareness before things boil over. So I'm gonna get your reactions to this and let me know what you think Suzanne covered his weapon with the names of far ride role models. As he drove to a mosque in Christchurch, he played a traditional Serbian military song, and he cited convicted Serb war criminal rather than carriage in his manifesto.

00:33:32--> 00:33:45

And he's not the only one. Serbian nationalists have inspired other white supremacist, including Anders Breivik, who killed 77 People in Norway in 2011.

00:33:46--> 00:33:55

The rise of the far right, like so many other European countries, Serbia is riding a wave of Neo nationalism.

00:33:58--> 00:34:11

The difference here is that the movements are role models are convicted war criminals, men with violent pasts, whose acts of aggression are not just excused, but publicly glorified.

00:34:15--> 00:34:30

Legend Daudet supporters attacked and shot at a mosque in the town of Janja. Police in Brcko district also had their hands full while across the border in Serbia's pre boy and Novi Pazar. There were threats of ethnic violence

00:34:40--> 00:35:00

your thoughts? You heard them they were chatting, shoot the moss. What do you think people eventually influence like novedge Novak Djokovic, which, you know, what do you think responsibilities like him, you know, people because there's not too many people like like him out there. And others you know, getting ahead of things before things

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

rupt What are your thoughts when you see this and what I'm talking about? I think that's a very good point that you're making. In fact, it reminds me of a few instances that have taken place.

00:35:09--> 00:35:56

Wiley, who was a UK grime artist who said, some anti semitic remarks, and because of that, he pretty much got canceled from all of his social media. So short social media took the initiative. There was a walkout on Twitter until he got removed from the platforms. Then nobody was allowing him to perform. And then a couple of days ago, and there was a picture of Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rushford. I'm not sure if it was Marcus Rushford, but I do know definitely was Jesse Lingard. But yeah, I think yeah, it was Marcus Rushford as well. And they were asked, you know, how come you even seen with Wiley and because of that because of how anti semitism is taken seriously.

00:35:57--> 00:36:28

They immediately condemned it. Yeah, without any hesitation. These guys are England plays Marcus Rushford, he plays for Manchester United as well. You know, one of the biggest clubs in the English Premier League. And then like you we were mentioning before Lewis Hamilton, who was asked to condemn what Saudi was doing, and he was very quick to do so. Because it's his responsibility. Then, when JK Rowling made a few comments about the LGBTQ movement, she's the author of the Harry Potter books, pretty much most of the cost

00:36:29--> 00:36:30

from the likes of

00:36:31--> 00:37:15

Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter and the actor who plays Weasley and Hermione Granger, all of them. They they condemned JK Rowling's comments. So the question here is, why the disparity? Why the disparity? What makes this situation different? First thing that will say is Muslims, is it because they are Muslims? And just a few weeks ago, I guess, Emma Watson decided to post a something on her Instagram in solidarity of Palestine. Now, she just posted something which shows a much and said solidarity is a verb or word. Yeah, she said something like that. I think it was verb.

00:37:17--> 00:37:58

And then a lot of people appreciated. appreciated that. But unfortunately, and sadly, some of the deployment, like Israeli diplomats, they use that as an occasion to be are over the head with the anti semitism labor, which a lot of people were saying, hang on a minute, how on earth is the anti semitism? So you can't even defend the Palestinian people without being called an anti Semite. So it seems that anytime somebody even mess it up, so when he stood up for the wiggers, China dropped him from Pro Evolution, soccer, even when they were playing the games, they wouldn't mention his name, they had a vendetta against them. So it seems whenever we're talking about such issues,

00:38:00--> 00:38:51

pertaining to Muslims, either when people stand or speak up, they are curtailed, and they are just pushed down and made to be quiet. Or nobody just speaks up. Now, how are Muslims meant to feel when this happens? And occurs? Yet? How many more times? Can you feed us with the pacifier? No, no, it's all in your head. It's all in your head. Because I'm sorry. But when you see a certain trend, even on a mathematical graph, and it's going upwards, you're naturally going to assume that, you know, it's going up exponentially. Yeah, that's what you do is called following the pattern. So I'm sorry, but this just reveals the insidious Islamophobia that is present among certain people. And to be

00:38:51--> 00:39:33

honest, if this does reach Mr. Joe kovich, and, you know, hopefully, you know, assume the best, maybe he's planning a statement as we speak. But it is really important for people that are from these countries, to take a stand. You have to take a stand, and speak out against oppression, regardless of the shape or form that it's taking. And even in my many videos, I've been talking about what's going on in India. And initially, it was happening to Muslims. And I said, if you do not stop it, hate does not discriminate. It will spill over. It's like a glass. You need to stop it. Don't just say, Yeah, we don't like the Muslims. You got to stop it because it's oppression, not

00:39:33--> 00:39:59

because it's happening is people that you don't like, and you don't get to pick. And now unfortunately, and sadly, the Hindutva terrorists and extremists rather, it's spilling over to Christianity. Christians aren't being allowed to practice their religion freely. I hate to be the bearer of bad news and say I told you so. Yeah, and we do not want the same to be happening over

00:40:00--> 00:40:38

and it is the responsibility, like you said, of people with big platforms to speak out. Because when when Emma Watson spoke out, it sent ripples across the globe ripples. It got people talking, like, yes, we shouldn't be following celebrities, blahdy blahdy, blah, but we cannot deny that they do have an influence. And that famous Spider Man line with great power comes great responsibility. Would you have a problem condemning, you know, if Muslims were out there chanting shoot at churches, you know, or making threats towards non Muslims. Would you have a problem condemning this?

00:40:39--> 00:41:26

Thing is Eddie, we, since 911. Muslims, like you said, it's become part of our DNA to condemn any little thing that happens, even though we're not supposed to. Yeah, it's not our responsibility. I get up in the morning, have my cereal, get on the bus go to work. Some nutcase has done something on the other side of the planet. And somehow I'm responsible. Somehow I need to apologize for that crazy. Yeah. Yeah, it's ridiculous. Like Muslims have been put on the back burner. We've been put in the back seat. And this, you know, this is having, you know, it's giving us this victim mentality. But you look, if you want to condemn you condemn, and the thing is, if somebody asks me without a

00:41:26--> 00:42:17

shadow of a doubt, Muslims condemn any harm happening to an innocent person that goes without saying that goes against the core of our Scripture. In fact, if Islam, the The dictionary definition of Islam is peace, and we're this cult of evil, I hang on a minute, right there. All these gangs and cults, they have like really cool, wacky, scary names. Why on earth would a cult or scary bunch of dudes call themselves peace? It just seems counterproductive. It doesn't make any sense. Yeah. And you pick up the Quran. And that's exactly you'll see. Peace. You see, good, logical reasons, analogies, stories. Yeah. And this is your Lord speaking to you. And this is why it's very important

00:42:17--> 00:43:04

for us to think objectively and not get sucked into this media storm and Frenzy because fear sells, hate sells. Today is the Muslims. Tomorrow, it will be somebody else. Before us. It was the blacks before it's been the Jew Jewish community has been the communists has been the Bavarian Illuminati, you know, that used to actually be a group, There's been loads is the Catholics, you know, they've been There's been loads of scape scapegoats in the past. And now, it's just the turn of the Muslims, unfortunately, and sadly, but for a Muslim to be shouting, that sort of stuff on the street, it will be on the front papers, from papers. In the UK, we have something here called the prevent programme,

00:43:04--> 00:43:10

there'll be picked up, there'll be picked up. And some some, you know, this such thing as,

00:43:12--> 00:43:53

you know, secret courts here in the UK. And, you know, certain things in which you can, there's one thing that's actually gone to the House of Lords where if you have a dual citizenship, which means even if you're born in this country, but your parents are from another country, if the government deems you can be removed from this country, many Muslims have had their citizenship revoked, you have shedule I think seven sheduled seven that you can be stopped on the airport is sorry, in the airport for many hours, hours on end. So Muslims are bearing the brunt of this. And you know, what sad, Eddie, he, you know, the reality is

00:43:54--> 00:44:34

the let me tell you the reality, since 911. Since 911 73% of the extremist incidents have been done by the far right. Now, I know nothing to do with Islam. Now, you know, we're talking about the far right, who are actually if we want to, if we want to mention a religion, you know, what religion would the far right be connected to? And this is not to pick on any religion? Yeah, it's not but I mean, it's a factual statement, to be honest ID and the religion that they are mostly adhering to is Christianity. Yeah, it's Christianity. And in fact, there was there was a brilliant study that was actually done.

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

It's an in there it took

00:44:40--> 00:44:55

all the kind of killings in the name of religion that has actually taken place is taken place. And you know what they concluded which religion has killed the most people during that time?

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

It was Christianity.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

was Christianity?

00:45:02--> 00:45:38

Would I be able to share this on the screen? Yes, go ahead. And this is I mean, as often repeat I mean, this is not again not picking on any religion, but it's kind of ironic that any time someone gets connected like you're saying anyone gets connected somehow to Islam, he was eating maybe some Arabic food, right? Or he was he said, a Salam alikoum or and he's not even really practicing. But anything to connect him to Islam is going to be front page news. All right. So you have you have these war criminals guilty of the following count, count to genocide.

00:45:39--> 00:45:44

count three, persecution, or crime against humanity.

00:45:45--> 00:46:23

Count for guilty on 10 out of 11 counts a litany of cruelty, murder or crime against humanity. Here he was today inscrutable, but guilty of atrocities committed in a war that cost over 100,000 lives, created millions of refugees and became the darkest chapter of postwar European history what they call you know chutneys I don't know if you heard of this term chutney Have you heard of Chetniks have never heard it. So you everybody's heard ISIS, Boko Haram these are these have been plastered all over you know the media. So this element this is who these Andrew brolic and the Christ Church

00:46:25--> 00:46:46

terrorist all these people were connected to them if you look into this so this is that group that's in this part of the world and you don't see anybody you don't really hear them talking about them you don't hear you know much you don't you haven't heard much but if you look into it, you'll see that this is this is what's brewing in this part of the world.

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

In this video,

00:47:07--> 00:47:08

what is up okay,

00:47:10--> 00:47:18

Ratko Mladic chord Europe's biggest killer since Adolf Hitler 1995 in eastern Bosnia Serbs are fighting Muslims.

00:47:20--> 00:47:29

Don't worry manage tells this boy will look after you alive. Within hours of Srebrenica massacre began around 8000 Muslims murdered

00:47:30--> 00:47:34

at the same time that is led the four year siege of Sarajevo.

00:47:35--> 00:47:56

The longest siege in modern history. 10,000 died from Serb shells and snipers, the International Court of Justice indicted Madej for genocide and crimes against humanity. And if the leaders if the people out there who have influence from the church to the politicians don't come out if they're just silent when you hear people ranting shoot at the mosque and

00:48:00--> 00:48:22

this is not like one or two. These are you know, imagine you coming out and you're seeing these mobs of people on the streets and you just came over the word genocide like since World War Two, you know they had rape camps. 50,000 women they say around in these rape camps accuses men, women and children. The river became a mass grave. But 24 years on the memory of horror is being deliberately raised.

00:48:24--> 00:48:33

And nowhere is it more obvious than here Ramza mu which was raped here at the villain of last hotel. other survivors say it was used as a rape camp.

00:48:34--> 00:48:48

Ramza says she was attacked by Milan lukesh A commander in the white Eagles militia later jailed for mass murder. Bosnian Muslim men and boys are selected for murder, not only on account of their Muslim faith, but also because of their gender.

00:48:51--> 00:49:05

The women suffered a different fate. Srebrenica was the culmination of a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing across Bosnia Herzegovina, in which 20 to 50,000 women and girls were victims of genocide or rape.

00:49:07--> 00:49:43

You know, and we talk about never forget and this is something that obviously we're just trying to create awareness so before boys over and right in the heart of Europe, again another massacre you know, another genocide and nobody's you know, the Novak jova catches the church leaders everybody's quiet you know, ask people in this area is there any news reports is there anything that people are speaking out against this you don't hear much so inshallah we can do some good and get people to speak up you know, and work together to stop these things. You know, on both sides if it's on any side, you know, some some doing it a will be the ones to come up invite us we're common talk against

00:49:43--> 00:49:50

it. 100% Anything on the other side, whereas people speaking out you guys speak up? There's an evil speak up against it. What are you gonna show us?

00:49:51--> 00:50:00

Yes, and just the the 73% statistic that I gave those of you that want to check that up. It's a that was actually in a report

00:50:00--> 00:50:35

prepared for Congress by the Government Accountability Office. And is it right here? No, no, that's the 73% dimensioned. And then you've got ADL. And of course Europol that I've mentioned that since 911 73% of the extremist attacks have been done by the far right. Now here, what you see on the screen, Eddie, is a very interesting study yet it's been done by Dr. Naveed chef, I think he's of Cambridge, or one of these prestigious universities. And this is a comparative quantitative study of the mass killings in history. Yeah, so in history,

00:50:37--> 00:50:37

you can see

00:50:39--> 00:51:14

that the religion that has the tallest bar, I've underlined in red is Christianity is Christianity with 178 million. And then you see their Islam in green, little tiny, one day 31 million. And if you check on the right, I've underlined Christianity, which is ranked number one. And then Islam is actually ranked number six, it's ranked number six. But unfortunately, and sadly,

00:51:15--> 00:52:01

according to a Georgia State University study, they discovered that Muslim terrorists get four and a half times more coverage than non Muslims. So there is clearly an inherent bias here. And that's the reason why Muslims are seem to be constantly constantly condemning, because the system, unfortunately, and sadly, does not favor us. And that's why it's very important brothers like yourselves, and like myself and the viewers watching we do whatever we can, from our side to be involved in the struggle in whatever means we can even if you're a whatsapp warrior, even if you're a father, who's teaching the two kids about the reality and what's going on and giving them, you

00:52:01--> 00:52:42

know, the complete news, rather than just the filtered news that we get from the mainstream, it's very important that we do use this as a wake up call, and educate those around us. Because sometimes people say, I don't have these big platforms. And this and that, look, well, lo Allah, Allah knows best maybe me and Eddie, we, yes, we may have the numbers and we reaching those people, but maybe we might not reach that one person, that one Malcolm X, that one Muhammad Ali that needs to be reached, and maybe you guys that are watching with your, you know, you know, whatever means you have, and you have that sincerity, and you're able to, you know, find that new Malcolm X that we need that new

00:52:42--> 00:53:21

Muhammad Ali that we need. Yeah, so people like this on Never underestimate yourselves. And never, never underestimate how you are in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala as well. Scott more questions before we come to an end. So you mentioned four and a half times I've actually read studies that it's actually you know, you're going nice, but I've read that it's actually even much more than that press coverage. And I want people to wrap their minds around that, like, you know, when something's highlighted, and it's often, you know, repeated over and over, and then it's a big difference before it gets on the front, if it's on the front page. And then it's on for you. Now you did some and it's

00:53:21--> 00:53:42

not back, you know, people don't even go to the back of the newspaper. It's somewhere over there. Right. So they even the numbers were the amount of press coverage that hits the the main front part of the newspaper, gets those main headline, attractions, all that stuff, consider all that. And it's very sad, you know what I mean? So we have to be consistent. And

00:53:43--> 00:54:14

one other thing I was thinking about, I wanted your comments on this, because a lot of this a lot of these things stoke from and it reminded me of a Hadith from Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him who said this nationalism it stinks, you know, to mean, so in this part of the world where you have people who are let's say Serbian, Croatian doesn't matter if you're Italian polish. I mean, Islam doesn't discriminate. You know, it's something nationalism, okay, you have your national identity, no problem. But when people try to make their nationalism as it's better than the next man's or whatnot, and separate people based on this, this is something that Islam actually calls

00:54:14--> 00:54:55

against, because you have so many Serbians creations, Polish Italians, who actually look into Islam and they accept Islam, for its beauty, you know, for all of the teachings, you know what I mean? So, what is your comments when you hear about people when you these Stokes of in people, politicians using this to divide people like they've done in Bosnia, based on this nationalistic pride? Yeah, I would say that's a very good insight that you've given and this is a technique that the British have not hidden in books by Mark is called secret affairs. He openly mentions this in his opening chapter where he talks about the British talking about the importance of divide and conquer even when they

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

using it in when they were using Hindustan which is again a collective term of

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

India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. And he said yes, this Hindu versus Muslim thing will play in our favor. In fact, they did this and Imran is done and, you know, in Iraq as well, the Sunni Shia divides, and in Iran is the Northern Alliance and Taliban and you know, the likes hazhar ease and the groups actually play in the favors of the elite. Yeah, it's easier for them to rule when people are fighting amongst each other. They call it breads and circuses. This was used by the Emperor. He made the Colosseum for this reason, but the people are too busy being entertained by the breads and circuses. Whilst we are doing what needs to be done. This is sometimes what I say to these wannabe

00:55:44--> 00:56:28

gangsters as well, that they are fighting over territory, when let's face it, these territories are owned by the politicians, if you really want to get these territories and find out actually what's going on and don't fall into these stereotypes and these traps that you're supposed to fall into. Yeah, if you're coming from a a background, where you're grown up in the hood, or in the estate, as we have in the UK, you are destined to fail. Why? Because you have cheap, GMO ingredients with sugars and the likes and your education system. You know, it's part of culture to not, you know, care about education too much what you're doing is you're falling in that trap. Yeah. So what you

00:56:28--> 00:56:42

need to do is realize that you are in a trap, and then try to get out of that trap. Yeah, that's why when you listen to these interviews with Snoop Dogg, and these guys, when they say, oh, you know, you don't get that much respect in the hood. He's like, I don't care.

00:56:43--> 00:57:28

I needed to get out the hood. And now I'm out the hood, these people are just hating. And that's what it is. And that's where it is. And we need to realize this, and really mobilize. They say, you know, at the time of the Battle of butter, the Muslims were 313 against an army of 1000. armed to the teeth, but the Muslims to enter they had sticks and spades, but because they were people of action, people of substance, they were able to do something substantial. Today, the Muslims are 1.8 billion, but we cannot do what the buddy Sahabas could do. And one scholar gave a brilliant example. He said, In those days, the mosques were unbaked. But the people who emitted and who came out of the

00:57:28--> 00:57:36

mosques were baked. Today the mosques are baked. But the people who come out the mosques are not baked.

00:57:37--> 00:58:09

So may Allah make us people of action, people of substance, that we you know, definitely invest like these discussions are here to evoke you guys into researching them. Yet, we're just giving you the tip of the iceberg of what's going on. We only have an hour and we're conscious of time and conscious of the people and retaining, you know, you guys and your attention. But really, this insha Allah should really inspire you to research and really introspect and do something.

00:58:10--> 00:58:49

And I think that the most important thing is for our viewers if they're new to the channel and new to hearing us, and they want to know more what Princess Diana was almost. And what was there even talk about her accepting Islam taking the Shahada? What do you think they should look into what she was about to accept why she was about to accept it was so beautiful about the shahada was so beautiful about Islam. Would you advise people to look into that? Definitely, Eddie, in fact, I would say if you look at any field, you will find a Muslim there who has been fascinated and enthralled with Islam. In threshold. You look at one of the most famous comedians on the planet,

00:58:49--> 00:58:55

Dave Chappelle, he talks openly and candidly about how Islam inspired him.

00:58:56--> 00:59:17

You've got footballers like Paul Pogba. He's being interviewed. He plays for Manchester United, and he's talking about how Islam has, you know, really helped him and assisted him and Subhan Allah, when we look at actors when we look at, you know, sports personalities. I mean,

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

you're no stranger to Habib Nurmagomedov. I mean, Habib Nurmagomedov has spoken, mashallah openly and candidly about the influence, he is the best. He is the best of the he's the cream of the cream when it comes to MMA, and he is somebody who Subhan Allah is so affected by this beautiful and amazing religion. And you have even the likes of like we discussed Putin, world leaders saying that you know what, we need to give respect. We need to give respect to the likes of the Prophet Muhammad Salah lo Allah you sell. Yeah, so again, it's the same thing.

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

The message that you give, which is why, why?

01:00:05--> 01:00:14

And that's why we'll be satiated. Once you pick up the Quran and you read what your Lord wants to tell you.

01:00:16--> 01:00:27
