So is the stereotype of Islamic extremism, a fair stereotype being fair, we could say this was Christian terrorism. We're not going to do that. It wouldn't be fair, but you can make a case there because

00:00:13 --> 00:00:16

you apologize for the million Iraqis

00:00:18 --> 00:00:56

to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean, I'll sit I'll make them greetings of peace. How're you guys doing? We're gonna be discussing. Are you talking about that? Muslims terrorist violence? A video that came out recently by Patrick ben David, look, if you're easily triggered or offended, this is not the video for you. You are going to get offended. We're going to talk about stereotypes. We've been told that they're out to kill us all. So I'm going to go 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

00:00:56 --> 00:01:00

about Islam? Not really. Do you know anything about Islam?

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

No, sorry. You know what Islam means? Islam?

00:01:06 --> 00:01:14

No, we've been told that they're out to kill us all. That's what you've been told that Muslims are out to kill you all.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:40

Well, that's it to say on TV. Anything. I know it's in the Middle East. Whether you're gonna have four wives, brothers and sisters, as you can see, there are so many Americans who don't know about Islam. We need your help to change that help us to build the Dean center, the first Mega data center in America click the donate right now may God Almighty Allah reward all of you

00:01:47 --> 00:02:26

know he's been going in a good direction trying to bring Muslims together with Christians to combat the sexualization of the children. But in every issue abortion, Muslims have the lowest percentage of divorces, lowest percentage of divorces, how they feel about abortion, how they feel about LGBTQ, all of that stuff. Muslims have a conservative belief, and other things that are really seeing the benefit of working together with Muslims. The parents that were rising up against the grooming, sexual perversion of children were Muslim families. Now there's a particular video and the topic is about the stereotype is the stereotype of Islamic extreme Muslim affair stereotype. So I'm going to

00:02:26 --> 00:02:49

bring up my next guest and we're going to tackle this it's under the title are Muslims anger is people in the world with Patrick bit David brought to you by Petra, ben David. And we're gonna go ahead and he presented his very nice, but we're going to put some things in context. We're going to go ahead and dissect this, look at it. Look at the study that he's quoting. And give it another perspective with my next guest here on the D show.

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


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


00:03:08 --> 00:03:19

and His final messengers, Muhammad, peace be upon him? This is our religion, Islam, Islam, this is the dijo

00:03:22 --> 00:03:25

was ready to talk about this, I would only talk to you

00:03:27 --> 00:03:35

how much respect I have for the faith of Islam Show. Welcome to the deen show. The Deen show.

00:03:39 --> 00:04:19

Doc Seville. So I'm Nico likoma. Salam or hamdulillah Peace be with you. Please be with you. And to the believers and the people out there. Let's start with that. This greeting that I just gave this is really profound and deep because when you look at this stereotype, is the stereotype of Islamic extremism. And then we're Patrick, ben David, he goes into different stereotypes and the Jewish stereotypes, black stereotypes, Asian stereotypes. Let's get into this video. And then we'll see what actually how he kicks it off. And then I'll ask you something from there. How's it Hamdulillah? Let's go stereotypes are stereotypes accidentally given to different sects or communities or

00:04:19 --> 00:04:59

religions or ethnicities? Or is there some truth behind these stereotypes? We have data, top five countries and terrorism the last 50 years which countries marriage works at which religion which countries are the most angry so we have so much different things to look at? But today's topic complicated one, we're going to talk about it some of the stereotypes about Muslim is torn. Okay. So he gets into the stereotype now, particularly regarding Muslims and Islamic terrorism, he calls it Islamic terrorism. When I opened up the show, I said peace be with you. And just that that comes to my mind is that how could a group of people who are greeting wishing

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

Peace, peace starting with peace.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:28

We are somehow deemed, you know, the most extreme of the stereotypes shouldn't be right. Yeah, any people and their book and the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and the faith itself. The foundation of the faith starts with peace. You know, Islam comes with the root word Salama, right? Yes, same word, same root word for peace. When we agreed with each other,

00:05:29 --> 00:05:52

all of these, you know, we say that, yes, Islam is a faith of peace, Muslims are to, to practice that faith and the guidance Islam has given. So when I saw that study in that video, the very first thing that came to my mind, brother, Eddie, is the fact that extreme ism is an act. It can be done by a person of any faith or no faith, Muslims don't have a monopoly on it.

00:05:53 --> 00:06:35

Why do I say that? Because if that is a French study, in a friendship, historically, there are buyers because they have been occupying so many lands, they have been destroying so many cultures, like in North Africa and different parts of the world. So extremism, you cannot just define it to based upon what only one culture and one faith does. You have to define extremism in that anyone any faith, no faith, when they are destroying property when they are oppressing the innocent, when they're going into extreme in anything. So we have to make sure that extremism has to be defined. So when we define extremism, and then we include the extremist in this country, or anywhere in the

00:06:35 --> 00:06:51

world, that means that study is going to be flawed. If we include the definition in the most comprehensive way, for example, I mean, I would say that every single gun violence and shooting in this country is an act of extremism.

00:06:52 --> 00:07:03

There have been 500,000 people dying in this country in the last 25 years by gun violence. So that is extremism. So I don't think their study took that into account.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:48

I would say that the 10 million domestic violence abuses in this country is an act of extremism. Yeah, I would say that study has to take that into account. I would say that the millions of women who have been, who have been objectified and the * industry and the objectification of women, that is terrorism on the opposite gender, there's the study has to take them into account, I would say that many of the European countries, they have been occupying the Muslim lands, and also the non Muslim lands, every single one of them is an act of terrorism. The British Empire, the Dutch, the French, the Spanish, the Portuguese, you know, for centuries, they have destroyed cultures, they

00:07:48 --> 00:08:34

have oppressed people, they took away the wealth of the people, they destroyed the countries after country, continent after continent, every single act is an act of terrorism, and extremism. So I would include, and I would suggest to that refreshing tag that you guys have to broaden the definition, include any and all of these things. And then we can see who is number one. Here's what I think we object to. And I'm sure you agree and Muslims would agree. It is not fair to call it Islamic terrorism. The same way it is not fair. Everything you just mentioned right now, people would Christians would flaunt that this is a Judeo Christian nation. You hear this always right.

00:08:34 --> 00:09:00

This is a Judeo Christian nation. So it would not be fair. You could say rightfully so now, if this is a Judeo Christian nation that all these are acts because the people live there then no Judeo Christian nation, majority are Christian parent practicing or not, we don't know. But it wouldn't be fair. But we could do the same thing. If you want to play that and say, okay, all this is Christian terrorism.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:44

I mean, Islamic terrorism. Now you're saying right off the bat that's wrong. That needs to be classified. How would you classify that properly? Well, I mean, if someone says Islamic terrorism is Islamic violence, or Islamic extremism, I would divide those two words and say, this is Islam. And this is an act, the theology of Islam, obviously, it's peaceful, it's proactive, it is a blessing to the world any which way that you look at it, and Muslims are fallible humans, and Muslim can be right and can be wrong. So we cannot judge a faith, the best faith, you know, the most comprehensive the best guidance of Islam but the act of a few misguided people and the Christians would say the

00:09:44 --> 00:09:59

same you know what don't judge Christianity by the Crusaders by the kk k by the end Rubix. By the homicides in this country, the rapes in this country right the abortion clinic bombers by them, Timothy McVeigh's we can go on and on. Yes, I have paper after prayer.

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

Right, yeah, long list of acts done by the Christians. But we should not label them as Christian terrorism, big or Bible terrorism, right? We should say that these are Bible believers. And because they are misguided, they're doing these things. So we wouldn't do that you shouldn't do that. Let's play. Let's play fair. But I want to. I want to commend Patrick, because I think he's really going in the right direction. Recently, I did a response to him. And he had a Christian. I don't know if he's a pastor, preacher, Charlie Kirk on his program. He also he mentioned something. Regarding Prophet Muhammad being violent and Jesus being peaceful. One of the reasons they tend to be a

00:10:46 --> 00:10:58

violent people too, is because their prophet was a very violent person. Christ was not right. God's basic training is an optional program for recruits at Fort Jackson. It's run by the Campus Crusade for Christ.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:35

It describes his strategic goals as evangelize and disciple enlisted US military members throughout their military careers, and build Christian military leaders to influence the nation for Christ soldiers brought the New Testament to Iraq as well. This time on the barrel of a tank as seen in this official photograph. Released by the US Marine Corps there are over 25,000 Department of Defense leaders working in the rings and corridors of the Pentagon. This video titled Christian Embassy was widely criticized because it was built in the Pentagon and included interviews with uniformed officers, including poor generals. The video was produced by the Campus Crusade for Christ

00:11:35 --> 00:11:45

through Bible studies, discipleship, prayer breakfasts and outreach events. Christian Embassy is mustering these men and women into an intentional relationship with Jesus Christ.

00:11:46 --> 00:12:29

GQ magazine recently broke a story about the intelligence reports that then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld personally delivered to President Bush. each day's report began with a militaristic quote from the Bible. Oh, he said that. Yeah. So that was the first program they did. And then this is an independent solo one. And we've been in touch I've reached out to Patrick, we're waiting to hear back from him, Patrick, waiting for you. We extended the hand. And this is why it's so important for him to have Muslims such as yourself. We bring him on, I invited him to the show, would you be willing to go to the Patrick puck? Podcast? Yes. Brother, Patrick, you know, we extend our hands of

00:12:29 --> 00:13:02

friendship, and, you know, nice, friendly discussion. And these are important topics, we should not shy away from it. Because these topics are so important that people want to hear in a nice friendly way between Muslims and Christians, and our Jewish friends, that not only the theological points, but the points of contention, the way that you have brought about extremism and violence and yes, anger that Charlie has brought, then we can come to that, too. Yeah. So this is important that he calls us to the table. So he's talking about us, but not talking with us.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:43

He got to talk with us. ventric. Let's do it. But I'm really, I like the direction he was very respectful how he opened up here with the stereotypes. But I think now, if he gets comes to the table, he sees this, hopefully, this can open up his mind, he seemed like he said he was he wanted us to be open minded to the information he was presenting. So we want you because and all the Christians and others out there who are uncomfortable because they think now they'll see stuff like this. And I think these guys are pretty violent, right? They'll think, you know, the seated data, say, Man, these guys are ticking time bombs, something can go off anytime. No, I'm also really

00:13:43 --> 00:14:24

appreciative of, you know, Patrick, for opening this topic and presenting in a much more balanced way. Yeah, compared to what other people are doing. But let's not just stop it there. Let's extend it more. And let's give more justice to the data in a more in the proper context of it. So I think that's when we can do the proper justice. And that's when our viewers, they can actually, you know, analyze and see the fate of Islam and the background of Muslims. And that was really nice. He met this Muslim and they started getting into a conversation back and forth. And he gives us his experience that someone that he was going to work for and get hired by they thought that okay, they

00:14:24 --> 00:15:00

were feeling uncomfortable because he's Armenian, and now they're mainly community or some Armenians. Were doing this insurance fraud thieves there were thieves. So the person brought it up, in his interview, and he was fuming, he was upset. But he said, Look, give me a shot. Let me prove to you you got the job you came and then he goes on to talk about how he became one of the top guys and etc, etc. But he said he took this and he didn't take it personal and he made something of it. So he wants us to make something of it and with all the other stereotypes, but before we go into deeper, he met a Muslim who ended up

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

Giving him a Quran to give and this what I like about Patrick, he actually brought on one of the first Muslims on his program. You know who that was? Andrew Andrew Tate. Yes, I saw that. Yeah, so that was pretty nice. That was pretty cool. And then he gifted him a Quran along with the Bible and some other book. What What were your impression about that? Well, honestly, I didn't watch the whole show. But I really appreciate it again of Patrick, that the he wants to hear from the Muslim side. And again, so let's not stop it on the and rotate listening to him on the invite us invite other Muslims and Muslim scholars. So we can have a nice dialogue, and we can chalk out the differences,

00:15:44 --> 00:16:26

theological differences, especially. And then there are many commonalities, you know, the viewers would be surprised to find out the many, many commonalities, especially of the values that we uphold about the LGBT things which is going on, about the morality, about the respect of women in respect of parents, you know, all of these moral values and all these values of decency, we have in common. So let's also highlight those, there's when we can see you know, what, we can live together, we can work together, and we can make humanity better by God's guidance. Beautiful, why there is truth here. But our job on whatever sect you are, is to try to change. So I share this with you to tell

00:16:26 --> 00:16:40

you, I've been through it. I don't like it. And I simply want to positively changing so try to receive today's message in a way where you're open minded. And if you're open minded, open minded, open minded, not to the extent of my things are spilling out.

00:16:42 --> 00:17:22

We're open minded, Patrick. Yes. So is the stereotype of Islamic extremism. A fair stereotype according to a study done by French Think Tank, Islamist terrorist attacks accounted for 39.1% of the lives lost due to terrorism between 1979 and 2019. In a matter of fact, here's where the top five countries are leading the way in terrorist attacks, the last 50 years Iraq has experienced the most terrorist attacks the last 50 years. It's number two is Afghanistan. Number three is Pakistan. Number four is India. And last but not least, in the fifth spot, Syria, what do you think? He said a lot in there. Okay, where should we start? Okay, let's start with the last one. So he mentioned,

00:17:22 --> 00:18:05

this is not just, you know, crime or terrorism to the outside, you know, occupiers. This is like a crime within your own people, like black on black crime, you know, people killing have their own color, own culture and own faith. What I would say is, in our in the 1979, war between Iraq and Iran, yes, Sunni, Shia and whatnot, but they're supported. There's a proxy war, they're supported by two super powers. So in almost all the cases in the Middle East, foreign powers, they're supporting two different fractions of Muslims. But why just stop there, brother, Eddie, when we look at the history of the US itself, when the Civil War was happening, 1000s and 1000s of people, I'm not sure

00:18:05 --> 00:18:44

50,000 100,000 people when they died, who were they fighting against? But the fighting the French Indians, of colonists and his Pakistanis, who were the fighting Americans, white, Caucasian, Christian Americans are fighting each other. So are we going to conclude that America is a you know, angry country, terrorists country? You know, Christianity is wrong, you know, Bible is wrong, white race is wrong? No, we have to look at the circumstances, we have to look at the whole picture, we have to look the whole context, that's when we can see what is going on. Because if you just say in what Muslims are fighting with each other, then what? What's the conclusion? If you conclude

00:18:44 --> 00:19:27

something, then I can conclude exactly the same thing to the Christians and the Jews and the Hindus, Hindus, there are so many caste system in there, right? They hate each other this caste systems, are we going to say every hindu is wrong? Or the Hinduism is wrong? Or the Vedas are wrong, or the India is wrong? So we just cannot This is really simplistic way of what you know, Patrick is saying. So we need to do more, you know, analysis about what exactly country by country that's big. That's when we can figure out we got to go deeper here, then go, I think a good place. Now, if someone wants some good data, I think Robert Pape, from the University of Chicago funded by dependence, has a complete

00:19:27 --> 00:20:00

database on terrorism. And he said, he said when drone attacks go up, suicide bombing goes up when American troops go in any country and primarily in the Muslim countries under democracy and spreading liberalism, and spreading the rainbow pride and all this alphabet movement. Then you have coined the Robert Pape, terrorists expert from the University of Chicago. He says bombing goes up so there's a connection between

00:20:00 --> 00:20:30

terrorism and war are connected. This is the phenomenon here. So when he talks about not before, these drone attacks before the suicide bombings weren't happening until the drones until the invasions until the occupying forces coming in Robert Tate pape, terrorism expert, University of Chicago, funded by the Pentagon, Pentagon, he says Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, they weren't having this type of violence and a suicide

00:20:32 --> 00:20:48

before this before 2003, not a single suicide bombing in the history of Iraq. Repeat that before 2003 Not a single suicide bombing in the history of Iraq. What do you think happened in 2003?

00:20:50 --> 00:20:57

In the context of what it used to do to Iraq, you had the lie. That yes, and that led to

00:20:59 --> 00:21:32

the occupation? Yes. Yes. So occupation is directly connected with acts of suicide bombing and terrorism, splitting of the fractions, you know, the the culture, the people, the country, the resources. So, you know, not only Robert Pepe, by the way, many, many such, you know, scholars they have said that the reason people are angry up there, the reason there is violence up there, the reason there is extremism, and all kinds of violence. Number one reason is that occupation, occupation.

00:21:34 --> 00:22:16

And this was a many called it because you had an again, just being fair, we could say this was Christian terrorism. We're not going to do that. It wouldn't be fair, but you can make a case there because George Bush was a Christian. He goes on to say, quote, Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East, biblical prophecies are being fulfilled. This confrontation is willed by God who wants to use this conflict to erase his peoples enemies before a new age begins and quote, and was on some kind of crusade to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean, this crusade

00:22:18 --> 00:22:59

this this, this, this crusade, this crusade you had on the did you see some of those shells some Bible verses and including this one used to train soldiers in Iraq contain a secret coded reference to New Testament passages about Jesus Christ. Other sites have references to the New Testament books of Matthew, Revelation and Corinthians, the face of Jesus Christ. The rifle sights are produced by the Trijicon company of Wixom, Michigan, which has almost a billion dollars in Pentagon contracts. The the presence of the New Testament references seem well known as this gun reviewer pointed out the passage for the book of John.

00:23:01 --> 00:23:44

Love it, I love it. Yes, Trijicon, those guys are Christians. And, you know, they're just in all their different sites, they have verses on there. So just a little neat side note, for those of you who aren't Christians, well, you know, whatever get over, the rifle was referred to as the spiritually transformed firearm of Jesus Christ. Cyclical references on the rifle sites is only the latest example of a clash in the US military over Christian symbols and preaching in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, the tiny biblical codes on the US military rifle sites used by the army and the Marines as tiny as they are, seems certain to raise the issues again, whatever else, you know, they

00:23:44 --> 00:24:23

would have Christians coming together the army units and praying and whatnot. We're not talking about a few fringe guys, a few marginal characters, these were top commanders in the US military, openly flouting the First Amendment, openly expressing contempt for other religious traditions. And openly talking about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As as Lieutenant General Bruce Pfister puts it a spiritual war of the highest magnitude. And they're doing this on the record influence of evangelical Christianity within the ranks of the US military. How deep does it go? They see themselves as on a mission that is merging God with American power.

00:24:28 --> 00:24:46

They're looking at the mission of the United States military as very literally fighting a crusade. It's not a metaphor for them. They believe that they are in a spiritual battle. That is equated to a physical battle as one officer told me says there's angels and there's demons and we are fighting demons.

00:24:52 --> 00:25:00

So if you had certain people who are of the Muslim faith and Muslims, one who simply some surrenders and submits to the creator, the heavens the earth one

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

God Islam uses submission to the one God. If you had soldiers in uniform, who are calling upon Jesus, let us pray. Dear Lord Jesus just come to you in prayer. They were on a mission. But it appears it was not just a military one, united in prayer, a group of evangelical Christians inside Bagram, one of the biggest US bases in Afghanistan.

00:25:28 --> 00:26:00

On the floor of the room, two sets of Bibles, the blue ones in Pashtu, the green copies in diary, the two main languages in this deeply conservative Islamic society, Bible and making prayers, you say they're Christian, so they're coming in Christian terrorism. Right? Well, we're not doing it. We're not saying that. But you can make a case for that. Of course, we can make a case they'll make or use recorded US Army chaplain Gary Hensley in a provocative sermon at Bagram Airbase, you know, Special Special Forces, guys, they hunt man, basically,

00:26:01 --> 00:26:20

we do the same thing as Christians, we hunt people for Jesus, but we should not we cannot. Because that's not just you know, we cannot blame Bible or Christianity or Jesus peace be upon him. For the acts of violence done in the name of Christianity, or done by the Christians. In two quick examples, I can give brother Eddie,

00:26:21 --> 00:27:09

the data that he showed by the French Think Tank 39% violence this year to this year done by the Muslims. If you look at from an objective way, from the factual way, right, from any data that you can look at it, the number one, you know, acts of terrorism that I can say are the most number of civilians killed in the last century, they were done by WHO, which countries, Muslim countries or non Muslim countries, World War one close to 19 million civilians, they died, or they were killed actually be fighting between the Christian countries due to the fighting between Christian countries 54 Christian 54 million or 54 54 million civilians, non combatants. Deborah were killed because of

00:27:09 --> 00:27:51

the war, right after the Second World War between the Christian countries. So are we going to say that Christianity is the most violent fade because they have killed like, you know, 100 million people, even though that's a fact. But we don't blame Christianity, or the Bible, or Jesus peace be upon him. We blame those Christians and their geopolitical situation. So in the same way, in case if you see some Muslims in some countries because of the occupation, now people are angry. And now it's a proxy war in that proxy war, people are getting killed. We cannot blame Islam or the Muslim culture or Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. We blame those foreign powers and those misguided

00:27:51 --> 00:28:33

Muslims. If you look at and this is what Robert Pape, University of Chicago funded by the Pentagon terrorists expert, look them up. He talks about this as geopolitical. He says nothing to do with Islam. So you can't call this Islamic terrorism. That's the thing that I want. Patrick says it open mind I believe you do. And people can be misinformed that that you're getting different perspective, him and Charlie Kirk, I look forward to have connected also with Charlie Cook, Kirk. And I think him also people can get information, it can be the wrong information they don't sit that's why it's important to sit with the Muslims to talk to go ahead and open your mind and, and get the other

00:28:33 --> 00:28:57

perspective and other facts that you might not have come across you might not have looked into. This is very important. What about the war? and Europe? This is the greatest genocide after World War Two. And you can clearly see they were blessing again, with all respect. And if you like Patrick said, if your mind is on open if you're stubborn, if you're not looking to

00:28:59 --> 00:29:40

as the wise man said, the mind if it's not open like a parachute, you know what I mean? You got to go ahead and get it work, right. It's got to be open otherwise not going to work. So we're respectfully bringing these things up. Not to be like I got you here. Got you there. But to give that broader perspective, Bosnia, you had what's called the Chetniks. You had their guns being blessed by the Orthodox priests. They came in, and they did a slaughter. And we're not going to blame all Serbs. It's not good. That's not the right thing to do. But you had they were not going to bring blame Christianity, but Slobodan Milosevic, look them up, Patrick. Look at Radovan KOVITCH

00:29:40 --> 00:29:58

they were in the church. They were with the priests getting the guns blessed. And they did a massacre under the UN protection that people can sit up and eat. And they thought they were in a safe zone. Next to you know, even the UN Yeah, they left them women and children, women raped.

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

It was a massive

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

her it was it was an over 8000 There's still it just past July 11. Every year new bones remnants are found and they're doing the janazah has the burials? Not that's just one part of Bosnia? I mean, you had like, and you know what, if you look at it, if you look at Go and do your research, all the masjid DeMoss were destroyed. They were brought down to the ground. But the Muslims looked this up, Patrick, the mosques, the churches were left untouched. Look at this standing behind a Catholic church, a Catholic Church. One interesting thing is that is this true that during the war, this was the greatest genocide that had happened after World War Two here, and pretty much we don't blame

00:30:48 --> 00:31:29

Christianity, even though it was a crusade against Muslims. But we don't blame Christianity, even though it was hijacked at that time, but just an interesting point. But another even more interesting point is that Muslims executing the teachings of Islam and Prophet Muhammad orders you will not have seen if they weren't following Islam, Islam preserve this church. Is that right? That's right. Like in Sarajevo, I don't know the number of the churches so how many churches are in Syria but not a single one during the three and a half years occupation of Syria what was destroyed this is the main church of Syria was in downtown like the street downtown area.

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

The only thing that

00:31:34 --> 00:31:36

it wasn't destroyed, but

00:31:37 --> 00:31:46

the grenades from the from the Serbian side that dropped 1000s over 500,000 grenades during the two and a half years. And

00:31:47 --> 00:31:58

that the only damage it it got the churches from those grenades. So not a single church was destroyed or anything but by the Muslim side by the Bosnians.

00:31:59 --> 00:32:41

So before the Geneva Convention code, there was the mercy that the Creator has sent through the mercy to mankind Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him who said, don't kill innocent non combatants. Now, when you're fighting in combat. You know what you're going to send a guy you know, love letter, no, you're in combat against an enemy, self defense, but we're talking about now, the places of worship. They're off limits. So unlike others who had just destroying demolishing moss, and houses of worship, Islam forbids that. And that's why this is we're able to stand in front of a church right here and witness that. And we just heard the bell, right. Yeah. So it's been all the

00:32:41 --> 00:33:24

time during the war, the bell was here. And, like I said, not a single church was destroyed or damaged by the Bosnians by the Muslims during the war. There was also 50 million meters down there. There's a Serbian Orthodox Church. The Serbs occupied the town. It was occupied for two and a half years. And the church in downtown Surya wasn't touched by the Muslims by the Bosnians, because the church didn't go occupy the city, the military, the army, the Serbian army did by the Muslims, by the Muslims, that's important. That's important for the viewers to know. It's haram, it is forbidden, extremely forbidden in Islam to destroy places of worship. Look at that, did you know

00:33:24 --> 00:34:05

that? Yes. And Muslims, doesn't matter which geopolitical situation that you're in, even in the extremes of war, we still protect the churches or synagogues and places of worship. And that is real Islam, actually. So one more example I was going to give is, you know, when people when they bring this data about Muslims are violent and angry, and all of that I think some part of the video mentions that, you know, it's important for us not to lump all the 2 billion Muslims into one bucket, we are not monolithic. So I would divide them into three different buckets or three different categories. The first one would be Muslims, as minorities, like you and me living in non

00:34:05 --> 00:34:30

Muslim countries. May that be Europe as continent Australia, right over here in the USA, Canada, the second set of Muslims I would say, Are Muslims living in majority Muslim countries in which no war is going on? Okay, got it. The third category and the last category is Muslims in which Muslim majority countries in which war is going on.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:59

So let's take a look at the very first one Muslim says minority like USA living in a non Muslim, predominately this country. Muslims are a model community in this country. Why? Because according to the survey, we are the most charitable people. Right? You heard that right. Yes, last year, two years ago. We are a model community Muslims, right. We have the same Quran Muslims. We are one of the most highly educated people. We are the most diverse people. We are the most

00:35:00 --> 00:35:30

People are having the most positive and peaceful impact on the society. So when we look at from those metrics, we are a model community, the Muslims, when we take a look at the Muslims, majority Muslim countries in which no war is going on Indonesia, Turkey, Malaysia, right, those countries that also model Muslim countries, the Jews, the Christians, even the Hindus, the atheists, they're living in with a peace and harmony with no oppression. But living under justice

00:35:31 --> 00:36:18

is only the third category of the Muslims living in a Muslim predominate country in which war is imposed foreign occupiers are there even when the foreign occupiers when they left, they impose the dictators on it? So because of that oppression, Muslims are angry, I would be angry, you should be angry, right? I mean, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, 1945 or so us become angry, and then what did they do? They went and they did what Hiroshima, Nagasaki, 300,000 innocent people died. So anger can be justified at some times. And not every anger is negative, important. I'm angry at all the oppression going on, you should be angry, right? Patrick should be angry. I'm angry or shut down.

00:36:18 --> 00:36:29

For example, I'm angry at all the pedophiles, I'm angry at all the drug dealers. So anger is not always a negative emotion. Right?

00:36:31 --> 00:36:52

So, so when the video says, You know what Muslims are the angriest of all the people I mean, in the later segment, then we have to look at the cause of the anger. Because by itself, if you bring the aspect that Muslims are angry, there's incomplete, incomplete data, you have to look at why are Muslims angry? Or some Muslims, I should say, right.

00:36:53 --> 00:37:05

Because of oppression, maybe the drone missiles, maybe the proxy wars, maybe the dictators, and the oppression going on, right, those segments of Muslims. You know, I was before the show, I was looking at some data.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:52

Americans, our fellow Americans are angry at so many things over here, okay. They're angry at the healthcare system, the economic system, the political system, correct educational system in which parents are taken away their rights from how to educate their children. So us, every single member of the US, every single citizen, we are angry, at certain part of the US government, just because we are angry, we cannot conclude anything from it. It's incomplete, we have to look at the reason for the anger. So that's the whole point, brother Patrick. If you look at other statistics, if you look at and before I get into those real quick, I mean, you can think, why would people be angry and the

00:37:52 --> 00:38:24

countries that he listed were pretty much bombed back into the stone age like Iraq, Afghanistan, they were invaded. Imagine people coming from China over here and they want to spread communism they want to spread their belief system to us you wouldn't be happy with that, would you? You'd be upset you'd be angry rightfully so human nature is Human Nature So you're coming over here based on a lie was a lie of weapons of mass destruction now it's uncovered a reason we went into Iraq at the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction it turns out he didn't

00:38:29 --> 00:38:31

those weapons of mass destruction and gotta be somewhere

00:38:34 --> 00:38:37

when are you going to apologize for the million Iraqis that are dead

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

about weapons of mass

00:38:42 --> 00:38:43

connection tonight

00:38:54 --> 00:38:54


00:38:59 --> 00:38:59

a millionaire

00:39:09 --> 00:39:51

and you go over there, you kill the people, you blow them back into the stone age. And you create this unrest? What do you think and then you pass on you know, then you start putting up you try to put up these rainbow flags. And you know, the * is the satellite the *, you spreading liberal, the secularism and this way of life that the people don't want. Yeah. And now people There's a great documentary called Dirty Wars. You know, you got people in these caves eating real food, you know, family and they're hanging out and next thing you know, drone from 10,000 miles away, 10,000 miles, 10,000 feet up in the air boom. And now this man, his family, his wife and husband. They brought up

00:39:51 --> 00:40:00

their child about to get married and you just destroyed their their life and how many of these have happened in Afghanistan in our

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

Iraq and Pakistan, Pakistan and all these other places. So it's it's, it's interesting that these are the places where these statistics were now. It's like, for example, you come in and someone comes to your house, Patrick, imagine this, and to your neighborhood to your house and the crook and the criminal comes in, beats up your family, and takes all your possessions turns things upside down. And then when you go to, you know, defend yourself nowadays Oh, now now they use you as the the violent one, right? Let an angry and angry violent extreme extreme is come on here. So one of the ways that I would advise her brother Patrick and Charlie who was during the show, and anyone

00:40:41 --> 00:41:04

else, you know, unbiased viewers, we need to compare apples to apples. So the way that I would say brother Eddie to compare, okay, let's compare us in which no war is going on in the mainland, right? Good point, your war is going on? Okay. Let's compare that to a Muslim majority country like Turkey in which no war is going on in the mainland about Qatar. Harder also.

00:41:05 --> 00:41:18

Indonesia, Malaysia, right. So let's, for the sake of argument, us, comparing it to Turkey. Alright, so I have the data over here. So when it comes to when it comes to drugs,

00:41:19 --> 00:42:08

US has seven times more drug dealing compared to Turkey. All right, when it comes to moderate, five times more compared to Turkey, all right. When it comes to the rate of rapes, the rate of assaults, the rate of, you know, *, the rate of oppression, every single metric that you can look at us is many times more than Turkey and our apples to apples, how about if you do the same thing Qatar is one of the safest places to live? Yes. And also Dubai. Very, they are high on the statistics. And this is a majority Muslim country, Malaysia say these are the safest places in the world to live. Medina was rated for women one of the safe these were safest places in the world. You know, this

00:42:08 --> 00:42:51

statistic. Really? There's Deena Yes, yeah, I think I will show that Medina. And this is the heart of Islam here. So this data, if anyone goes to nation, right, it's a good website. And the data in there is compiled by the UN, by the CIA, by the FBI. So this kind of you know, quote, unquote, credible data. So you have anyone go to nation And then you can do the search by the metric of assaults, robbery, rapes, right drug dealing, homicide, suicide, and they compare 200 countries almost all the time for all of these different metrics. The non Muslims country, they're ranked the highest

00:42:52 --> 00:43:31

of all the countries the non Muslim countries are ranked the highest in all of these, you know, unfortunate data. Yeah. So what do we conclude? Do we blame Christianity for it? Or do we blame that culture that geopolitical situation because it goes back to we started GE is if it's a Judeo Christian nation, what's it producing? And at the end of the day, if it's just through the roof crime is through the roof you got mother coming home just recently this has happened all over the place as you know, this is actually a Muslim woman and hijab she was coming home and then guys come up, take her purse husband comes out. Did you see this one? This was in scope Skokie, in Chicago,

00:43:31 --> 00:44:13

but anyways, I mean, theft is just through the roof. Islam has the solutions amputation after the four people have been fed. This is a cart has been implemented. And when when Islam when actually if you look at the Islamic history when Islam was actually implemented, they were looking for who to give money to they were everybody was taken care of. Yes, in the time of Omar bin Abdulaziz 17, seven teen until 7019. Approximately, people went out to give money to the poor the the Zakat money which is an obligation for Muslims to give. And they knocked at the doors and reborn open the door and say we don't want it we are content we have enough, right? Imagine over here, even before we

00:44:13 --> 00:44:51

approach somebody, people are going to take away and run with the money. Right? It's you that's what Islam produces. You go through some cities and neighborhoods in Chicago, Gary, Indiana, Chicago. I mean, imagine if you took just a portion of that money that you're spending over here with the with the wars, the war machine and going into other countries and bombing and drones and all that if you invested that here, imagine how many how much of the problems you can go ahead homeless people. I mean, you got people defecating in the street in California and other places homeless, the homeless situation is just through the roof. So I think the best thing we can just start sorry, are we going

00:44:51 --> 00:45:00

to blame Christianity on that say this is, you know, Christians are now this is the Christian terrorism because of that and not know it. So it goes back to where we started.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:36

It's not fair to call this Islamic terrorism and Islam is producing all these angry people is Islam is Christianity jail Christian nation now, because of it is now it's this is because of that, that this has been produced the fruits of it, we can say the same thing about South America, predominantly a Catholic continent, predominantly right, in which education is like really low, people are dropping off from high school marriages are, you know, been breaking up, or drug abuse is rampant up there. So unemployment is rampant homicide is going on right? Really,

00:45:37 --> 00:46:15

really high. So we cannot blame Catholicism or the Bible for the state of affairs in the South America. So in the same way, it's not fair for anyone to look at Middle East or some Muslim country some population and say, you know, what, how come they are extremists? How come they are angry? How come there is terrorism? We have to look at from a bigger perspective. Look at the causes for it. Looking at the causes does not mean we are justifying it. This is so important by the ad, people who have been thinking, You know what, you guys are just playing a victim card. You're justifying it. No, we're not. Even if Muslims are oppressed, that cannot go and oppress other people. Because the

00:46:15 --> 00:46:27

Quran itself says saving one innocent life is like saving the life of all of humanity. And taking one innocent life is like taking the life of all of humanity. Right, chapter five, verse 32, and onwards.

00:46:28 --> 00:47:18

So so so the way that we can conclude this is going back to Islamic sources. All right. So this is culture here is the Muslims, fallible Muslims, right. They are a product of their culture. And then you have the perfect peaceful, a blessed faith of Islam. And actually, in these places, you have, again, with the * being brought in, this is all under the secularism, liberalism. And now actually, that's what it's producing is the same culture from here, you're pushing it over there, and this is causing the problems. And now now we have all of this disaster. But if you look at Dr. Seville, I want to go back to this where Charlie Kirk, he went, and he mentioned something. And

00:47:18 --> 00:47:55

hopefully when we sit and he sits with Muslims, hopefully they can invite us on we can talk and get to the bottom a lot of these things and get a different perspective. Lot of not even history, you gotta like they don't teach you to stuff in school. They don't. They don't, they don't. But they I was, I posted something. I tweeted something. There was this professor, American professor, and he was teaching some of the stuff that we're talking about, about when Muslims came in, and I'll talk about touch upon this morning they came in and they they conquered certain areas, you know, how they went and the justice that was

00:47:56 --> 00:48:24

that was established. And because Christians were being oppressed, they wanted the Muslims to come in and deliberate. Now this point, how would you deal with this, and we're getting to more well, on what I'm talking about, where he said that Mohammed, and we love Jesus. But he said also, please be upon him. He said, because Jesus is peaceful and Muhammad is violent. That's why the Muslims are violent. One of the reasons they tend to be a violent people, too, is because their prophet was a very violent person. Christ was not right.

00:48:25 --> 00:49:04

How would you go ahead and address that? Well, first and foremost, we need to correct their statement and we say, Jesus peace be upon him, he was peaceful, he was the Prince of Peace, Muhammad, peace be upon him and all the prophets, they were Prince of Peace. And obviously we need to look into the life of Muhammad peace be upon him compared to the really short ministry of Jesus, right? Please be. So the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him his ministry, his prophet hood, it spanned from the year 610 all the way to the year 632. So during that time, when he was peacefully preaching to the Moroccans,

00:49:05 --> 00:49:17

he did not raise a finger, he was like peaceful. He was, you know, oppressed by the people Muslims are getting killed, but still not a single bullet, not a single gun or sword was raised.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:58

However, when they came after his life, and then the life of the believers and they finally kicked him out, it is a God given right for every single, you know, human, to defend themselves. So in that self defense, many wars were fought by Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. So Islam is a peaceful faith. It is not a pacifist faith means Islam is a practical faith. You know, I mean, I can ask any person who's watching over here, what would you do to aim in the morning and knock at the door you see from the hood and you see that, you know, people are out there with chains with knives and with guns. What are we going to do? We'll pick up the baseball bat we have an alarm system fail, you

00:49:58 --> 00:49:59

know, press the alarm will call

00:50:00 --> 00:50:42

911 Obviously we will defend our honor of our family, our, you know, wife, our children, our property. So Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him had that many wars with the people who came to destroy Islam and the Muslims, every single one of them. So in that context, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he picked up weapons ordered by the creator the same way, Prophet Moses peace be upon him the same way prophets of the Old Testament, they picked up weapons to fight the enemy. So in that context, we say Muhammad peace be upon him is the Prince of Peace, but he was a practical person. He was a person who wants to show by example, don't just, you know, be chicken and you know,

00:50:42 --> 00:51:27

be sheep, and let violence and people oppress you. Be a man stand up for your rights, protect your women, your girls, your family, and your honor. So that is a prophet, the prophet of practicality, the blessings for humanity, and he showed us in every circumstances, how to live in God's guidance, and how to better the society with God's guidance, Ji, jihad, the struggling now because this is what people usually attack and they say this is violent, and they don't even know that doesn't mean holy war, the just war, even before the Geneva Convention came out, you know, to preserve decent values, freedom to worship, protection of monastery churches, mosques, jihad is a quest for justice,

00:51:28 --> 00:52:16

and peace. And it's not fair that you put Jesus in this situation trying to compare to Muhammad, because this what you said he wasn't given political power. But if you compare him to Moses, for example, what happened when Moses came back and the people are worshipping the calf? And just in one shot, what was it 3000 People were, were executed. So now do we discredit Moses from being a prophet if you compare all of the violence that was there, and if you look at Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, I asked them to look at, they can do this homework, how many people actually died? Through all of these different battles that happen? How many people actually died in those

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

battles altogether? How many people actually die by Muhammad? Peace and blessings be upon his sword? Right? You would think you know, they praise people like Alexandria degrade and they, you know, all these different figures and but if you look at Prophet Mohammed, and he came in, after being tortured, after the robbing the looting that they took from them, and all the oppression, the conquest of Mecca, when he came back 10,000 Strong Can you imagine that? Imagine is Patrick, Charlie, all the Christians and all the people out there, just read about this

00:52:54 --> 00:53:43

magnanimous thing that he did, forgiving those who did the worst atrocities, to your followers to your family. And he actually came in, not as pumping his chests, but humble would his head down, saying spread the peace, spread silabs spread the food, spread the peace? Who does that? So the word whether it is saying is that, you know, the people who tortured the Prophet peace be upon him, kicked him out from his homeland in Omaka, kill several of the believers took away the property. So when Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him when he came back to Mecca from Medina, with 10,000 of his soldiers, and now the Prophet and his people has the upper hand. And then he asked his people,

00:53:43 --> 00:54:24

right, the people who used to torture him, the Prophet asked them, What do you think I am going to do to you? And they said, You are our brother, we expect the best from you. And then he said, Today, all of you are forgiven. That is the Prince of Peace. That is the person who we can learn from aspect of mercy and forgiveness and love and empathy that you can you can play that game and you can go ahead and again, that's not the agenda here. We're not trying to do that. But many people end up playing this game, but you can come back and say, and quote, certain verses where Jesus said, look of my enemies, who wish to not not reign over them, bring them here and slay them in front of me,

00:54:24 --> 00:54:44

right? I came to divide father from you can you can go ahead and bring certain things. But you can also talk about when he comes back, there you go, what is going to happen? He said, he's going to stablish shittier God's law. Yes. What did he say? And then he's going to come back and kill all the infidels means the non Christians.

00:54:45 --> 00:55:00

I mean, I'm just using that language. That's what Revelation the last book of the Bible says when Jesus comes back. Every non believer means non Christians Thy will be done with so is that the Prince of Peace? We say yes, he is still the Prince of Peace even when he

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

comes in the Second Coming. You know, we would say he is going to follow the Sharia Allah's guidance will follow Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he will humbly pray with forehead on the ground worshiping the Creator, and rule with justice and peace all over the world. That was another thing that Charlie, in the episode that I addressed, he mentioned that the reason that many Christians, they believe because Muslims, they want to come in and establish Sharia, I share some of this right belief that radical Muslims want to bring Sharia to the United States.

00:55:35 --> 00:55:45

And we often you often say that Sharia is already here. It's here. How's that? me smiling at all of you and you, we are following the Sharia.

00:55:46 --> 00:56:31

Very soon we are going to pray the third prayer of the day, which is part of the Sharia in us we are practicing Sharia. If I go to Chicago downtown and give $5 or food to a poor person, I am following Sharia. If I go home and take care of my parents, I am following Sharia. If I'm going up in the morning, and, you know, working to get a food on the table, I am following Sharia. If I'm being nice to women, not objectifying them, I'm falling Sharia. If I'm having rallies against racism in this country, I am following Sharia. Or if you're uniting now for a common good, like Patrick wants to do and Charlie wants to do on a common platform common good to unite against the sexualization of the

00:56:31 --> 00:57:20

children. You're following God's laws? Sherea Sherea? Yes. And as we have said many times in the past, Sharia is there in the Old Testament, New Testament, Jihad started from the Old Testament, right? Moses and David and Solomon, all these prophets, they fought jihad. Jihad means they are struggling to establish God's guidance to rule with justice, morality and unity in those lands, that is jihad. So jihad is there in the Old Testament, Sharia is there all over the Bible? Patrick mentioned a few more things before we conclude he mentioned in his video here, why, what, which Prophet they believe in. So he talked about Jesus or Muhammad making these guys have a lot more in

00:57:20 --> 00:58:05

common except who they believe is their prophet, Jesus or Muhammad. But this is something that we believe in both. Yes, it's not either or now, they're not mutually exclusive. It is both. Maybe it's for some other time. We can mention later on the prophecies about Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in the Old Testament, and in the New Testament. So if you actually believe in the Bible, you have to take Muhammad peace be upon him also as a prophet, also as the last prophet. So if you read the Quran, and I advise every single viewer, especially Patrick, and Charlie, and all of you to read the Quran, the Quran does mention with high honor, Jesus and Moses and all the prophets, if you read the

00:58:05 --> 00:58:48

Bible and the prophecies in there, they are prophecies about Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in the Old Testament, in the New Testament, for that reason, Jews and the Christians of the past, they started to live in Medina, awaiting that prophet, and when he came, some of them, they embraced the fate of Islam. So it's not either or both of them. They're signed by the Creator. They both were the prophets. They both perform miracles, by Allah's power, they both invited people to worship the one creator. And just like they invited people to worship the one creator and not the creation. We invite our viewers to read the Quran and worship the Creator and not the creation. That's the way

00:58:48 --> 00:58:56

brother ID right to establish justice and peace and unity and morality in the world. And then what is the reward in the hereafter?

00:58:57 --> 00:59:04

Paradise eternal paradise. Yeah. Why you just got me thinking about when you talk about Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon them. Just

00:59:05 --> 00:59:46

is amazing. You mentioned the Quran, we're not killing one innocent beings, non combatants, like you know, killing all the humanity. The rules of engagement are really clear in Islam, you cannot go and kill innocent men, women and children non combat and so so we covered this whole Islamic terrorism thing. Let's so I want to make that clear. Hopefully he can pull back from that, after we gave some examples of where we can make a case for Christian terrorism. And you can see where now, this is a false stereotype. And this is something that with the proof and evidences and the proper data and everything this gets pretty much debunked. Now moving on a love for Jesus the commonalities now and

00:59:46 --> 01:00:00

he did that video of what Christians and Muslims have in common we have so much in common. And when you mentioned Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. It reminded me even in the Bible, and this is a whole different topic, but Isaiah 29

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

12 when the book is given to the one who has not learned talking about Prophet Muhammad, so you have prophecies of Prophet Muhammad, actually in the Bible, yes, yeah. So we have

01:00:10 --> 01:00:51

so much that we can talk about these are things that we can go ahead and make a strong case for the pure monotheism and the message of Jesus, why we believe he's a prophet because he was called the prophet in the Bible is that he was called the Prophet prophet from Nazareth. Correct. You mean Jesus? Jesus? Many times? Yeah. Matthew 1357 looked at in 33. You know, Mark six for John 444. Many places, when He performed miracles, people did not say, you know, that is God, there's Son of God, they said, there's a prophet. Yeah, there's two, there's so many things, so many topics, these go, we can go deeper into these, it'd be very interesting to come on and discuss these things. And

01:00:52 --> 01:01:12

this thing about Muslims, you know, when Christians hear that, and I had Christians come on, and when they went from being complete Islamophobes hating Muslims and Islam, and they were like, Why do we hate these Muslims? When they say Jesus, they say peace be upon them. But then there's another group of people that they believe his mother was a

01:01:13 --> 01:01:54

a, what do you call someone who has * out of wedlock, they disrespect her, they disrespect Jesus Peace be upon to call him all slanderous names and evil names. Were over here. You can go to the Hellfire if you disrespect Jesus Islam just correct. Exactly. So you heard me say it, I'm making this stuff up. Not only your disrespect, even if you don't believe that Jesus was a prophet, you're nullifying one of the articles of faith. You have to believe in him and all the prophets. So a few before. So if you compare all the things that we have in common now, and this is where we'll finish it off, where the uniting now against the sexualization of the children, you know, the pushing of

01:01:54 --> 01:02:34

this agenda, chopping off good healthy body parts and whatnot, that obviously we're on the same page here uniting on, would you be interested now? Do you think now you have a big reach, I have a big reach? Would you be interested in collaborating with people like Charlie, Kurt, and Patrick and David, they're actually doing some good work, they're going traveling, I think, to California to go ahead and to see other parents who are also on the same page. If the Muslim community knew more about this, and you think, through your message and other Muslims, that this is something that they would want to be a part of. I know, there's a really good point that we want our youth, our children

01:02:34 --> 01:03:22

to be protected from what is going on in the public school, especially and in the popular culture. So I think on that point on that value on that commonality that we have, I would really urge Charlie and Patrick you know, and others out there, like minded. Let's come together. Let's have a chat and let's work out a strategy how we can at least unite on that front. So inshallah God willing, as we say, we are at least protecting the children and then we can at least say later on that we did something. And that's one of the important Sooners means one of the examples of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him that you know, even before he was 40 years of age, him along with the Christians

01:03:23 --> 01:03:46

and the Jews and the idol worshipers, they came together for the common cause of removing the oppression from the society. So God loves that the Prophet he loved it, and if we do it Inshallah, we are also following the Sunnah. That means you are coming on a common platform to remove the oppression protect the children and please the Creator.

01:03:47 --> 01:04:25

Can you narrate the story of there was in Medina and Mecca you had the pack that was made? Yes. Can you talk about this pact social Muslims also see because some Muslims, they don't actually know about this, but the provinces on came together to fight against injustice and other things. Yeah. So so what happened was, so Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he was in Medina. So in the city of Medina, they were merchants, you know, businesses, they were selling each other's goods and people used to come from different places and buy and sell. So one time it so happened that one of the merchants that came one of the sellers, he came from outside of Medina, and he was selling. So

01:04:25 --> 01:04:41

actually, this was in Mecca, Mecca. Yeah, he was in Mecca, right? So he was selling something, and then he sold the goods, but the buyer refused to give him the money. And one of the prominent whorish person was the buyer. And then this merchant, he was raising his voice, you know,

01:04:42 --> 01:04:59

injustice has been done to me, somebody helped me and nobody was helping. So when Muhammad peace be upon him, when he heard about it, he said, You know what, something has to be done. So he called the people of different faiths, even the idol worshipers and they said, let's have a pact called the Pact of the righteous

01:05:00 --> 01:05:42

the allegiance of the virtuous, which is called as the Hillfield for though, so they all came together, knowing that they have theological differences, but there is something in commonality they want to remove the oppression from the society, they came together. And because of that, they were able to reduce and remove the oppression. society became better common people good hearted people, despite the differences coming on a common platform, we can do the same inshallah today, so to call problem, Hamid violent, he's supposed to be upon him, if he's fighting against someone who's trying to disrupt that peace and that justice, just like the police officer, and just like the person who's

01:05:42 --> 01:05:50

defending his family in his home, it's not correct to go and call someone violent, just like if Moses is going and doing something.

01:05:51 --> 01:06:27

This is very important to put things in context with someone who's still out there talking about problem, hummus is violent look at you have to go deeper and look at the context why certain events happen, right? And we go, and this is something again, this is something to talk about. And this is why we're addressing this, that you can go ahead and fully answering questions we can we can go ahead and discuss certain topics, and we can go ahead and, and put it out there, discuss it and see the different perspective. And if your mind is open, you're gonna be like, hold on. I wasn't thinking about that. That makes sense. But you know, when so really quickly, then we can wrap up,

01:06:28 --> 01:07:04

especially to brother Charlie over here. You know, God forbid, if you're saying that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was a violent person, how come he he gives such honor to mothers to the wives and the daughters, paradises to your mothers? Yes. If he were violence, God forbid, how come he said, you know, go and help your neighbors. If he were violent? Why did he forgive his enemies? If he were violent? Why did he stop the infanticide? If he were violent? Why did he stop the intoxicants from the society? If he were violent? Why did he remove

01:07:05 --> 01:07:45

racism from the society? All of these metrics is not a person who is violent, it's a person who is a prince of peace, not only for two years, but for all eternity. There's Muhammad peace be upon so we covered a lot. Anything else that you want to? You want to mention, we'll just at the end of the day, right, let's separate the people from the peaceful faith of Islam. And if you want to know what Islam is, you know, because I have read the Bible, I want to know who the Christians are, their holidays, their theology, right? Their history, I read the Bible. And I bet many of our fellow Christians, the Jews and the people of non Muslim faith, you may not have read the Quran, we can

01:07:45 --> 01:08:34

send you a free copy of the Quran free of charge, right? No strings attached. You can give us a call at one 800 662 Islam, one 800 662 Islam or you can go to the website gain, Spanish copy or English translation of the Quran. All right, but last but not the least, is to pray to the same creator. The way that Jesus used to pray for giving us guidance for giving us the best in this world, and for with God's mercy paradise in the hereafter. So may God guide each one of you may God bless each one of you. So we can live in peace and harmony as brothers and sisters. So God by His mercy can put us into paradise, Amin. Beautiful, I think we ended with that we covered a lot. And

01:08:34 --> 01:09:13

hopefully people would have open minds and see your heart. They can look at this. And they can go ahead and make a better distinction between Islam like you said, and the actions of human beings who are fallible, who make mistakes. And you don't want to judge Islam by the riffraff out there the same way you don't judge Christianity by the riffraff and criminals and whoever also let's be fair, let's be balanced. And let's unite on goodness and we'll see you next time. Subscribe if you haven't already. I look forward to hearing from you, Mr. Patrick. And let's make this a reality as coming together on a common platform to do some common good to protect the children and all the other

01:09:13 --> 01:09:48

things that are out there that we can go ahead and work on to make humanity a better place for all with that said peace be with you. A salaam aleikum said I wanted to come alive but I can't do hello I'm Dr. Daniela and I'm so excited to be here at the Dean center, mashallah which is under renovation. And I can't wait to see what's going to come and cello there's going to be a data center.

So I'm asking you to please make sure that you support this effort, inshallah I really hope that it spreads and really

01:09:48 --> 01:09:51

01:09:57 --> 01:09:59

I cannot leave without giving you a gift if you're not yet Muslim.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:19
