Yeah. Did you get to see our brother Tate? I didn't know I was trying to reach out to him is guests. He was still in house arrest and was not receiving people. So where he's in Andrews in Budapest now he's around Bucharest,

00:02:54--> 00:03:28

around the Capitol. Where are you from in Romania? No, I'm from Transylvania from Transylvania, northern middle side. Transylvania that has to be connected with what's the guy who was doing the Dracula. So how far is that city from where he's at? Yeah, it's it's a bit far. It's a bit what I've been to I was in in his vicinity. I was in the capital. Yeah. What's the latest with you know anything? What's going on? Now? I know he's outside of the house. He's still he's he's outside of house arrest and I think he's outside of house arrest but you cannot leave Romania Yeah, still got some restrictions.

00:03:29--> 00:03:50

How is Romania in general is how's the Muslim population there is a growing How is how are people are they more receptive now since agitate accepted Islam or? Yeah, no doubt about it was Mila 100 allow salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam wa sallam without a doubt. See these things? Everything happens for a reason right? Allah subhana taking guide a person through a stop sign and

00:03:52--> 00:04:35

you stop there and you see a message on your right side and you got the you know, and you go into Reza and you take it out right? Yesterday we went to play some pool domestic there's there's pool tables that was just for the people think there isn't anything for the creativity. So when to play pool and then we entered and someone said Yo bro this this family they have this lady who wants to who's interested in Islam? Yeah. So I think I spent like, five minutes seven minutes just explain the basics. Shad boom, that's it. Yeah. I mean, we were just didn't plan to go there, bro. Like, Allah just connected that meeting to her being there. Me flying in. I mean, coming sorry, from from

00:04:35--> 00:04:49

Canada, before from England. And that's it this whole how things work, bro. That's how it works hard. It's amazing. I mean, just to sit with I would just I had a Greek brother Hamza versus you know, Greek,

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

yourself Romanian, my family from Bosnia. And it's amazing. Every time you see all these different nationalities colors. Islam doesn't discriminate.

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

Welcome to all the way of life for human beings is the solution to all of humans humanity's problems, solution to racism to discrimination to all these differences, all the ills and all the problems that the world is complaining, NATO, UNESCO, UNICEF, everyone was complaining, world hunger, poverty, addictions, wars, Islam is the solution. Pick every single problem I challenge everyone go and do with research, what are the 2030 plans, what they're trying to eradicate, and all that. sit and think, and do some research and some you'll find that there's a solution for all these things. And it's not right. So every kind of addiction is haram. In Islam in poverty, you have Zika,

00:05:49--> 00:06:28

and sadhaka. All these things for all the issues, health and you have fasting, moderation, everything that Islam is the solution to all problems. Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. If someone sent me this, and I say, have a look at it, because a guy is Muslim, and had a look at and I said, I mean, this can open up to a nice discussion here. So I thought you'd be the person's best fit for the job. You also come from a background Christian background at the same time. And you've been a Muslim for a long, long time. I remember when I had earlier shows we did remember that, like 1617 years ago, almost. Yeah, something like that. Long time. Did you have or I had long hair at that

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

time. I think you did. I did. Yeah.

00:06:33--> 00:07:16

Okay, so let's get right into this one package this and, and let's see where the conversation goes. Inshallah this can be a very educate, I promise. This could be a very educational enlightening discussion, based off them kicking it off, there'll be a catalyst for that Inshallah, check it out. The problem that we're missing is spirituality, people and forgot about that, like, no one grows up, literally being fearful of God anymore. So they pump people don't even know it exists, right? They don't. They want to believe it. But to them in their minds. There's no signs physically, that tells them that religion or spirituality is real. Because now it's about seeing tasting feeling. And the

00:07:16--> 00:07:48

five senses, right? Yeah, right. But I grew up differently. And to ask you a question before I go into the spiritual side of that. Let's stop right there. Well, before we continue on, what do you think about the first part, it was interesting. I want to commend him from coming out and even, you know, opening up the door to talk about because a lot of these programs maybe people are scared to even bring up God bring up a law bring up a slum anyway. So what do you think about the statement with the first one that he opened up? People don't fear God? There's no spirituality, this Daniel there. Right. I mean, that's kind of something that

00:07:50--> 00:08:24

Lincoln to your first question, but undertake that's something that he said as well, that what attracted him to Islam was he felt that like, in other systems, there's no fear of God anymore. Right. And if you look at it, when you talk to your average, non Muslim, they always talk just about love, love of God, God loves you. It's all about love. Love will win. Love always wins. When upon analysis of that statement, and contextualizing contextualize in all the world problems, you find that no, actually love is not the solution.

00:08:25--> 00:08:43

A wife who loves you might cheat on your husband, who loves his wife might cheat on her love is not everything. It's fear, and fear the repercussions, consequences, that's going to hold someone actually from moving past that level, or that

00:08:44--> 00:09:25

border. Now love is important. Don't get me wrong, it is important in in many cases, it will work. But when love fails, there has to be something else. You cannot rely on any upon love. A bird doesn't fly with one wing, it needs two wings to fly. And that's why McLaren says like love and mercy, love and hope, fear. Right? It's between love and fear. That's how you're going to balance it out. So yes, spiritual is important. And I believe fear is extremely important. Because you need to realize that there are limits. You need to realize that God can punish you. God can

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

put certain things in your life that are gonna cause a lot of problems if you don't fear. So I think spirituality today because of world religions, and all these New Age religions, it's all about Wow, it's so nice. Look at whatever you feel. It's all based on your feelings and everyone's making up their own religion right now. Everyone, even though their claim that they adhere to a certain system, when you examined a claim, versus let's say their book, you find that it's a it's a myth.

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

So some kind of pseudo connection to that, and not a real connection, whatever it is, right? So it's important to understand spirituality is not only about spirituality, love and feeling in some connection, it's about actually knowing that there's consequences to every action. And at least, at least, people can be honest that hey, even if you can do it, or you can fear God, right? Please don't change things. Don't try to justify things. Don't try to twist it around. So it fits your narrative. That's it. Right? At least say, I'm not fearing God. I'm pretty messed up. But I'm not going to change where the limits are. I think this is very important to when you look at these

00:10:44--> 00:11:20

people, it's kind of like a double edged sword actually, with what's going on with not a lot of superstars and a lot of people who are not qualified to speak about Islam talk about Islam. For the youth, they're like, Whoa, man, did you hear a coin? He talked about Islam, man. Whoa, right. You know, you're entertained talking about Islam it well, you know, but what can happen is that now, you might not understand that, okay, they're talking about Islam. But are they an authority on Islam? And can they lead you to follow correct Islam? Yes, indeed, many people, for example, took shahada from agitate converting

00:11:21--> 00:11:57

Romanians open up their mind about Islam because and rotated so many people, including my my brother, who is not a Muslim, you know, the younger one. I met with them in England. And he's, you know, he's like, early 20s Now, and he started like, talking about masculinity and Islam and this and that from undertake. Right. But before long working, it was so hard for me to even bring a topic that actually opened the doors. He's the one to start talking to me about it. Right? He's the one to start on the understanding or Islamic community board is that and I was like, okay, and I waited for like years to now start, you know, this was it. This was the catalyst that was able to open up the

00:11:57--> 00:12:05

conversation. However, is that enough for a person, like if they convert to some because of any of these guys, right?

00:12:06--> 00:12:28

It could cause problems. I mean, Hamdulillah, I hope they convert. But as that word ends, and it seems for a lot of people that it's like, trendy now. And we have to be careful with trends because Andrew taken word, Sam, I'm going to call it Islam, and I'm so attached to his personality, whatever this personality messes up, which is a very, very possible, then what's gonna happen to me?

00:12:30--> 00:13:13

This is this, but he makes a good point, I think, Christian America, Christian West, be them practicing or not practicing atheists, whatever, but specifically, Christian, I think they need to really pay attention to this aspect, the fear of God, I think they focus too much on love. And now it's led them into an extreme, where they've corrupted themselves, they've corrupted their lifestyle, and they need to come back to some fear to balance it out. Islam has the perfect balance. You gave the example of one of the great scholars, what is it the head that love is the head, the driving force? And then one wing is fear. Fear, man, it's a balance. Yeah, hope and fear. And we see

00:13:13--> 00:13:49

this so they'll say God is love and love, love, love. But then what's stopping you from committing all these sins? That's the fear the repercussion, what you're talking about? Exactly. You'll see this like when, when a child when he comes home, and the mother is more merciful, in love, but then he's like trampling all over her lot of times within the father steps up. That's what gets him on the phone, even if he's not there, but just hearing his voice fear kicks in, right? That's right. And this is the balance that Allah God has created. And God is not love. God is the most loving God is the most loving God is not loved. And that's where they make a mistake is think God is love god

00:13:49--> 00:14:16

is this. What does that mean? Like when you unpackage? That what exactly what does that mean? Right? So God is the most loving these this is an attribute. But also God is the one who punishes right, and God is the Most Merciful. God is the Moses. And there's so many 99 beautiful attributes and names that we encourage people to really look into, which is a beautiful thing. So they really understand God, they don't make justice statements about God is love. And then other people said, God is hate. How can we create it?

00:14:17--> 00:14:43

You know, Jahannam you know, what it called? Hell? How come he's going to send people to jail? He hates people he's hate, right? It's horrible. And people see what God hates you. Right? They'll have signs but God hates you and stuff like, it's you need to understand who is God. That's why theology, monotheism Tauheed, what we call Aqeedah is so important. You know, it's literally answers the question to that.

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

main

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

question that as, I guess, you know, it's been around for the longest time like who is God? What is God? You know, philosophers, human beings, everyone, whether they like to believe or not

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

The atheist agnostic wherever everyone has it in their brain. They discussed it they did they they write books for it or against it. The most talked about topic in the world. God, because that's how it created, everyone feels it, whether they are against it or for it, it doesn't matter. The fact is that that's what concerns me the most. Yes. Let's go and continue on. So we got that out of the way, we got this one see already learning something, the correct balance here love, fear and hope you're in between these. Right? You don't go to one or the other. The bird is gonna crash. Exactly. And they represented it. So if I woke up, you know, as a Muslim, I had to go to pray every Friday, when

00:15:42--> 00:15:52

my pops, it happened. It was not a question you had to go do it. Today, you have a choice. You know, like my wife, she's Christian. I never forced her to convert.

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

Because in the way I was taught in Africa.

00:15:57--> 00:16:34

I mean, Islam is an extension of Christianity, we believe everything. We actually believe all the same thing. We just don't believe in the Holy Ghost. That's the only thing but everything else is all the same. Same commandments, same stories. Jesus is a prophet, we all believe the same, right? The only problem was that you have people that, okay, when you go into paganism, and you know, worship and statues and everything else, we just don't believe that there's no one or anything higher than the Most High, which is God. And no man should ever be looked at as God Himself. We are all messengers of God, we're all Messiah is to our own extent. So that's the conflict. That's the

00:16:34--> 00:16:53

conflict with Jesus, we don't believe that Jesus was God in man's flesh, we don't we just believe that he was a messenger of God as the Messiah. So we're not that far off, right? You follow him. So it becomes a situation where there's so many different religions now. But when you think about it,

00:16:54--> 00:17:30

we're all going to the same place. We're all literally worshiping the same. You know, God, we just translation by language or by anything, we just call them something different. But when you really look at religion, we all have the same commandments, we all have the same stories, it might be told by a different person or a different name attached to that story, but the story don't change. Maybe the characters may change from a standpoint of the name they call them. But in actuality, you know, my grandfather told me something that was super sweet. I think you can maybe you understand why I wanted to discuss this now. Because there's a lot to unpack here. Right? There's a lot to unpackage

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

Yeah.

00:17:32--> 00:17:51

There's some. And again, you know, I would come in a con for even talking representatives, a Muslim but but there's some things here that we can adjust. Correct. What do you think? Let's start from when he's opening up. So he said something about on the long lines of

00:17:53--> 00:18:08

this one as as, as Muslims, I go to only on Fridays, a Christian is going something was Friday. Islam as an extension of Christianity is the first problem we believe in everything except the Holy Ghost. So there's a lot to unpack here. Yeah, I mean,

00:18:09--> 00:18:21

you're not Yeah, so what do you write so the big mistake is that Islam is not an extension of Christianity. Christianity is a deviation from Islam. Islam has always existed. So think about as a

00:18:22--> 00:18:39

from the beginning of time when God created the angels He created him to be in submission to the Creator without any ability to fall out of that okay, there's no Fallen Angels there's no they don't make mistakes they've always since the creation they've been worshipping God.

00:18:40--> 00:19:21

That it basically means Islam. Then God created you know, obviously the jinns are there which are the spirits and then the human beings are created. Okay? The human beings and the spirits have the choice. The angels don't have the choice okay? The angels are Muslim. Muslim means the one who submits to the Creator okay. So think about as like what Allah hid method Allah Tala belongs the best of examples just for maybe for the sake of argument as this continuous line, okay, there's a beginning. Okay, when God created, let's say, human beings and angels before that and the jinn

00:19:23--> 00:19:32

and the system that he accepts from them is to be in submission. Okay. And that line continues, till the Day of Judgment,

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

when everything perishes, except for

00:19:38--> 00:19:50

Allah, because he is the one the beginning the end of first, the last, the one who is not created, you know, he creates is not created. There is no one like him.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

That's this line in this line. That's Islam. Perfect. The most beautiful the most

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

No one can ever,

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

you know, come up with something like this because it's from the Creator.

00:20:07--> 00:20:11

With time, there's these side lines that have

00:20:12--> 00:20:59

ramifications from. Okay. And these are the deviations, and that's what the process is through a sand line in the sand. And he said, this is the pattern, you know, if the straight path is then you drew some lines that this circular shaped on this is the path of the devil. Right? And I know people get upset. They'll say, are you calling Christianity the path of the devil? Well, in reality, it is that because it is such a deviation from the truth, to which God says in Surah Medea in chapter 19, and I encourage people to read that chapter 90 In the chapter marry the mother of Jesus, not the Mother of God. And the mother of Jesus. Regard says that, by the statement of Saint Wakarusa, the

00:20:59--> 00:21:40

law whatever they say Allah is begotten son. This is a very, very major statement that this, the sky is about to break, and the Earth is about to split. This is not something like Oh, yeah, it's just right. So I know people get upset but you know, in the end, the Christians they believe the Muslims are going to help, isn't it? So don't be upset, you know, we're just discussing, right? We're just debating Yes. You believe that Satan is misguided us and we're going to hell right is the path of Satan. So don't be upset if we say the same thing to you. Right? The question that people have to ask who's right? Who's correct. So this perfect line that deviations, all the religions,

00:21:40--> 00:22:29

Christianity from Christ, Judaism, from Judea, Hinduism from Hynd, and tau is and from Tao always related to something. Islam is the concept of submission. For what to achieve peace, to have that inner peace, human beings are always looking for some kind of inner self actualization. And you'll never achieve that. To follow this beautiful straight line in this straight line. There's different stations. So the first station was Adam, then Noah, then other prophets, Abraham noise, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad is the last station, okay? Before the Day of Judgment. Okay. All of them said the same thing.

00:22:30--> 00:23:15

One God, one God, there's no one worthy of worship, different rules. Times were different things. You know, this is normal, clear. But there was always one constant. God is one. Never did it change. So anyone who change these things, they basically deviated from that beautiful, perfect Serato musta came straight line Serato Mr. Kim, is the straight path. And anyone who went away from it, they deviate it. They're wrong. They're super shaytans. Not me. This one that was awesome. So these are the paths that the devil, don't be upset. You should be worried. You should it should make you want to listen and do a bit more research to what we're seeing right now. Don't take don't believe you

00:23:15--> 00:23:26

and don't believe me? Why should they believe us? I actually ask them not to believe us. But consider what we're saying. enough for you to go and do a bit more research such as, for example, read the Quran.

00:23:27--> 00:23:47

Right? Such as watch a few more Deen shows, such as maybe read this book. Such as do a bit more research. Maybe visit your local masjid and talk to an imam talk to a Muslim they you know, do a bit more don't just abroad this guy spoke about Christianity. Look at this guy. Let's cancel them. What is it? No think? Use your brain we're not here

00:23:48--> 00:24:30

with malicious intent to insult you or this these devils No, no. To make you wait. We care if we don't care. Who cares? We don't have to dish obrah We can go and have food and chill and relax. Why you waste? Why you try? Why are you going you know people don't understand that we want to guide them. We want to help the world guidance from Allah. We want to help them want to give them the message. So keep that perfect line. I challenge everyone goes study from the Bible from whatever you always find that monotheism and you'll find that people deviating their differences and their systems were always the paths that have gone away. So Islam is not an extension of Christianity, and

00:24:30--> 00:25:00

Christianity and all the religions that you know that exist is a deviation from the path, the straight path. Islam did not start with Prophet Muhammad. Please get it out of your head. Please do a bit of it never stop. It's a concept that is that Mohammed ism. There is no sorry I know some of the orientalist tried to call him Hammond ism in an attempt to try to equate it to Christianity, Judaism and all the other things too because they knew that people understand Islam as a concept where you know we're in trouble people

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

I leave. And people indeed when they understand that Islam is a way of life in a system, they do leave their systems, they come to Islam. How many people convert Islam? Be them rappers be them. Scholars, be a Gerald Dirks, be it Laurens brown be it you know, academics. You know, you don't see a Muslim scholar converting to Buddhism or something, Wallah, he don't find that. You don't see it converting to Christianity. Maybe there'll be one an exception here and the whole 1000 years or something like that. But look at the history, how many of the top scholars and theologians who convert to Islam recently it was one upset of that one priest? I think it was in America. Was it

00:25:45--> 00:25:51

from the Catholic or the Orthodox? You know, parish, church? Big, big, huge thing.

00:25:52--> 00:26:29

You know what I mean? It's a Saturday when you're talking about the Yeah, the big Bishop are suspended. Yeah, huge. And not this one actually does not exception. How many? How many of the repeating occurrence is not just a one off? It's not a one off there? People need to consider Yeah, so don't take things now to the heart lot of time. It's like you're about to get the injection at hurts. I mean, that the medicine is in there. So look at it like this is the truth being delivered. Evaluate it, investigate it, don't just reject it right away. Just because you've invested a lot of emotion is kind of natural, right? Yeah. When that wears off, and emotions settle down to think

00:26:29--> 00:27:02

ponder. This is incorrect. We're trying to help our brother aikana we help him out. So next time, right? Give better Dawa. So it's good that he affirms that he's Muslim. Yeah. But then as I say, it's a double edged sword because now people are thinking this is Islam. And trust me, people are gonna listen to him because he's cool. And this is a huge problem. And they're not going to listen to sometimes to a scholar will maybe not so cool. And he's stuck in a certain way. The youth are gonna listen to him. And we're like, Y'all bro a concept Islam is this who? You know, we're all cool. We're all the same, just different characters. Stories are different. But it's all the same.

00:27:02--> 00:27:39

It's not all the stuff that's incorrect statement or incorrect that Islam is an extension of Christian Christianity. And the other part that we believe in everything except the Holy Ghost. No, that is not correct, right. There's no, there's not a difference of opinion, or this is not as mainstream. This is what you're talking about around what we're talking about. This is like the Holy Ghost. And this is the concept of the Trinity. That has been developed after the council. And I see I mean, it was around, but that's when they solidified it. You're talking about many councils that have taken place to reach out what theologically people believe in Christianity today. And I

00:27:39--> 00:28:15

encourage people, quick research, just a quick research, all the Christian counselors and what were the issues that were discussed the toggle majors? Yeah. Because if you break it down, what do you mean extension of the Trinity? Because if we're talking about modern day Christianity, that's what it is. Crucifixion Trinity. So is a con saying, I mean, he made a mistake, hopefully, yeah, we'll take this as a, as something good that we're helping him out here. So next time, he can give better Dawa and do it properly, in sha Allah, and from here, so if you're saying if you're breaking this down, so what is it it is an extension off? Now this modern day Christianity that we have of

00:28:15--> 00:28:56

crucifixion of Trinity? Yes. I mean, if you if you look deeper into the beginnings, right, or what about is it? What happened? Because at the time of Jesus, there was no Christianity. There was no Christianity, Jesus was ethnically, a Jew, ethnically, okay? And it's a lot of Jews also, sometimes they don't tell you that Judaism is Islam, you know, they made into religion. They're just ethnically Jews, like Arabs. Arab is not a religion. You have Arabs, you have Jews, you have different ethnicities. You know, we have it's not a religion, the followers of Moses, what we call Benny straw yield.

00:28:58--> 00:29:37

And coming from Israel from Jacob, Yes, Prophet Jacob. They're Muslim. They were Muslim, as long as they follow Prophet Moses correctly. S. So it was on the straight line, right? It was one of those stations, you got to when people hear the definition, then it makes sense, because when you hear a mission to God, so if you say it like that they were ones who did submission to the will of God exact now you understand followed what the prophet that was at that time, ie Moses at the time brought the details Moses, Aaron, Prophet Aaron, and you know, prophets that came in that line of Prophets, they brought the law, they worshipped only one God, if you follow them, you were a

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

submitter, ie a Muslim translation, because people get caught up in semantics. Yeah, in words, right translations. So when you explain it, and people be like, No, but that doesn't make sense. But it's a submission. You mean, you're following? And you're obeying God? Right? So those who follow Jesus were Muslim, ie submission and submission, and those for Abraham. It's all that's what's beautiful about it.

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

submission about Islam. Right? It's not an ethnicity, it is a concept. Anyone who just born this little bit over this point, they will say that it makes sense. You don't have to agree with me. But don't tell me that it doesn't make sense. It's like if you take a modern day word they might have not heard but the concept they were human, right? They were human. Right, exactly. Right. They were Muslim because Muslim is one same thing. And like a human if you define humans, okay, that fits. Same thing here, right Muslim is one who submits his or her willingness to the one creator. And when speaking to someone like Dr. Gerald Dirks, and others, these were big people in the church Deacon,

00:30:37--> 00:31:10

you know, doctors and divinity, and whatnot. And then they go and look at some of these words, they go into their make and the Greek what they find is that this new I think, also pointed this out before many people would study this, they've saved that even those Christians at the time, this was something that was a label that was put upon them and then there was people of the Sunnah. There were people of the way there were people who are trying just dislike we have the syndrome, the way people who are many original people who are crying trying to be Christ, like just like we tried to follow the way the Sunnah was like Muhammad, they have people who are trying to follow the way of

00:31:10--> 00:31:48

Jesus of pure monotheism. But then you had the fight and then the people who believed in the Unitarians like the Bosnians, people from my neck of the woods, they're right Islam, Aryans, Hungarians, these are people who are monotheistic today, there's huge numbers. So those are then you had those people who try to be Christ, like who really have tried not worshiping Jesus, but worshipping the God Jesus worship. And then when Islam comes to fit like a glove, and they accepted the final messenger, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him all Yeah, before I go on, there was one thing that he said is very correct that we believe in Jesus. We love Jesus, as a mighty messenger.

00:31:48--> 00:32:20

This is a correct statement that a car made and we want to elaborate on that, no doubt, no doubt, Jesus, Yeshua, Asa, right is a very important one of the five strong prophets that were sent will will ask me mean apostle, they were sent to mankind so he's not just any prophet. He's a special prophet that came and he is the one I look at the fairness I want people to just please please just pay attention.

00:32:22--> 00:32:32

Just ponder over this if you don't take anything from this podcast take this one part. Yeah. Do you think if Prophet Muhammad peace be upon

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

is let's see how you say that is not a prophet. Okay. Some people say amazing system. Yes, everything. Wow, the Quran makes sense. This book is amazing what you guys are saying cool. But you know, I don't know Prophet Muhammad.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

Wouldn't it make sense

00:32:50--> 00:33:02

to try to focus people towards you, if you're the Prophet, called people towards you too, for the promise of salvation, everything, whatever. Everything should be focused on you.

00:33:03--> 00:33:34

But God says no quota or my anticolonial how he doesn't speak from his own desire. Pay attention. So Prophet Muhammad said that the one who's coming back is Jesus, not him. Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is dead. And he's buried in Medina can go and see his grave. You're the one who was saved and raised, and he will I mean, Race to the heavens, and he will come back. Okay, to fight the

00:33:35--> 00:33:49

the jail, or the Antichrist is Prophet Jesus. Now imagine, Prophet Muhammad could have said, No, I'm coming back. I'm going to be resurrected. I'll be the one in the center. I'll be no. He said it'd be Jesus why

00:33:51--> 00:34:09

he died. No one's going to check it after you know, it's because this is he was truthful, because it was not about him. It's about what God said. It's about what is the truth? If I want to make things about me, about my religion, my I'll make sure that it's all about me. That's how it is human beings are self centered.

00:34:11--> 00:34:44

Right? If I'm if I'm doing you're the host of the show, okay. You invite me on but it's about you're running this show. People it's about them. A con his music is about him. Paul, whatever it's about him. Everything is about them when they are portraying and they're selling something they're marketing something look at performance, Bistro, salsa, Salah. He said, Jesus come back. Look, how important is the second coming of Jesus? It's going to be a he's going to be the one who kills the Antichrist. He is going to be the one who leads the Muslims at that time.

00:34:45--> 00:34:53

This is I want them to really think about the honesty and the truthfulness of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon.

00:34:54--> 00:35:00

I really want them to ponder about this. Absolutely. The last and final messenger sent to mankind taking nothing away from

00:35:00--> 00:35:37

Jesus, but he was sent that his time for the people at that time. And you can't be a Muslim unless you love him believe in Jesus percent you just not be as slim. Or not even Yes, I believe in Muhammad, peace be upon him. But I don't believe in Jesus, you are not a Muslim. What do you mean by Muhammad peace be the one he's the one no, you cannot be Muslim. We all have different cultures, we always speak different languages, we all will be born in different places. But at the end of the day, he all he made sure that no matter what circumstance or area or religion that you follow, that there was always the one God at the top of the ladder. Now, this is religion, and always never

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

forget this.

00:35:39--> 00:36:20

Look at it like a navigation. Right? We all go into the same place, but there's different directions to get there. So I can't look at you and say, okay, because you're Jewish, that, okay, you're not spiritually Sloane, or you're not going to heaven or whatever place that is, because you're Buddhist. So because of whatever. At the end of the day, we all have this one thing that we all follow that there's a most high, right, there's a God that we, you know, that we give praises to. And he's the reason why we want to become better for everyone else to better ourselves in the eyes of his. And I'll ask, even if it's yourself, even if you believe that, I'm God. It's okay. Because

00:36:20--> 00:36:46

in actuality, we are Gods, we create life we've ever and if you want to be better for yourself, and do the right thing, so you can feel good about yourself, then so be it. But God is more of an energy more of a spirit, is to enlighten you to want to be better for yourself and everybody else that's attached to you. People hearing you say I hear you saying some stuff in Arabic, you've actually you're fluent in Arabic. You read the Quran in Arabic, you've been studying Islam for you got a master's in theology,

00:36:48--> 00:36:55

working on a master's, in counseling in theology and counseling, bachelors, I believe in Islamic Islamic studies. So

00:36:56--> 00:37:24

you were saying some things in Arabic? I heard him say, Yes, I seek refuge in Allah. For one he's saying this is check. Okay, this check, and we cannot I know is he claims to be a Muslim. But actually, to be honest, he's not a Muslim. By what he's saying. And I know people are gonna get upset when I say, but because he said basically, you can claim to be a God, you are a God. In a sense. This is not this is. And there's been

00:37:25--> 00:38:01

certain Muslim sects, so called Muslims but they're not Messiah who claim some of these nations, the nation, you got Nation of Islam. You got the Five Percenters before that the concept of what that would that God is in you and you're, you know, you're in God and all that. Even Oribi had some weird, you know, concepts like that. And I know people don't like this I don't we don't we don't we shouldn't make take fear on people, right? But this is blatant shirk, when someone says that this takes them out of the fold of Islam. So, I know people are gonna get upset, but this guy is not a Muslim. You know, and I'm responsible for what I say I don't have a problem saying that, you know,

00:38:01--> 00:38:40

because I know sometimes we play we just like cool. He's cool. Isn't that? He said, basically, that first of all, the mistake is he said, Well, we all have the same path. I cannot tell you not gonna know if you're not following the correct path. Guess what, we don't have the same path. You're now going to heaven. I don't even know if I'm calling heaven row. I mean, at some point, because I'm a Muslim because a lie Allah Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, if I die upon this, I will go to heaven. Yes. But I might still have some time to serve to for my sins, I pray, and I hope that I don't. But look at the arrogance of someone to say that we're all going to have in there is one God what what

00:38:40--> 00:38:52

what concept you can use claim that the concept of God that Buddhists or Hindus have is the same as the pure monotheism that a Muslim has? No, this is, this is intellectually

00:38:54--> 00:39:10

is dishonest, right? This is ignorant. It's not because I claim it's not me and I go and go and read the book. It's not about me. It's not that I had the audacity to sit here and this this seat and make that claim. This is by

00:39:11--> 00:39:16

what the Prophet SAW said anyone who associated partners with God

00:39:17--> 00:39:58

if I got for God's haram Allahu Allah Hirogen Allah has made Jannah paradise upon them haram meaning forbidden anyone who says this has so it's not me I'm just conveying the message so people don't get upset the brother Gabriel Roman is making tech fear but indeed claiming that we are Gods and in somehow we we have this is horrible. This is what's the cut what are we I mean, is this something now that if he's what is a con need to do now? I mean, if he hears this he basically if he hears that he's saying I'm saying this metaphorically, I don't mean this that what do you what do we what he does? He's explaining what he means. Yeah, he's explaining the concept first of all, in having

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

the the idea

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

that everyone's going to heaven and everyone believes in one Gods while the same basically just different stories that is the self * right away comes to mind is well me yoga took a guided Islami Deena and fillet I mean who Yeah

00:40:15--> 00:40:53

exactly. This is the original language we have here per se. And Allah is saying that whoever chooses away other than then submission is rendered to the Creator Islam Exactly. Never will it be it look at this very simple, never will be accepted. And in the hereafter there'll be among the loot, this is clear. And then there's another verse that comes to mind in the medina in the LA hilus. La Nadina in the lie is the only way of life meaning the only way you can get to Paradise is not all roads lead to Rome. It's through submission and surrender not to a human being Trinity is to surrender pure monotheism. He's made up his own religion, basically. And this is the danger and this is how

00:40:53--> 00:41:02

other religions have come about Imagine, imagine how some people are going to have a carnism or something like that. They're going to say this is the correct understanding. And this is this is wrong.

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

Just what he said it is a good nap. Can people see why we're discussing this? Because I hope they do. This is important now I hope that corrections to because see in the in the free world today, everyone says that we're all the same, we're all going the same place. Okay, let's test this theory. If you guys think, really believe they're all going to the same place my falling all this. Okay, so how about we just all fall Islam because it all is the same place. So let's just all fall Islam. It's the purest, the cleanest, it's got the most academic evidence for it historical evidence, let's just offer this time if you really that's all just follow snap calls. People are not going to want

00:41:41--> 00:41:59

to isn't so actually, you know, this is just a and I don't want people the wrong impression or wrong idea. This is what we're saying is out of the love. Yeah, we care for you. If not, you know, but but this is messed up sorry. Like, is really bad, you know, to believe that you claim to be God or that God is inside of you. So

00:42:00--> 00:42:31

this is the Christian is not gonna agree with him. Yeah. Because there's contradictory beliefs here. Because even even though we can work together on many things, the sexualization of children and you know, the the family decay, and we're coming together with, with Christians and other people of other faiths, we could do that, right. Yeah. But now we can get the elephant out of the room and say, Look, you and I've set with, you know, friends of mine from from long time ago, I said, Okay, let's get the elephant in the room. We agree. You believe I'm going to hell if I don't believe that Jesus is your Lord. And that's what I believe. Yeah, but I do believe in Jesus, but it's just not

00:42:31--> 00:43:04

that he's a god or little son of God. So then we get into discussion, but I respect you that you you love me that much you claim to love me that you're going to tell me the truth rather than me believing you know, you want me to, to understand and then I tell you the same thing. There's a clear Hadith where the prophet Muhammad didn't he say said anyone who hears of me right and doesn't accept me as the final messenger. So you hear the evidence has been laid out, not the distorted stuff from CNN, Fox, right? It's been made clear, like you're hearing it now. And you reject him. He's there's a clear statement from what did he say that there'll be, you're done, you're gonna

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

help. That's, I mean, it's sensitive for a lot of a lot of people but this is out of the care for you. We want you want you to at least, I think people respect that too. Yeah, at least I'll take the time to do something now. Now we got this out of the way let's work together on many different platforms on things that are that we agree we can agree on. Yeah. There's a lot of things we have in common, no doubt, no doubt. But this is this this is a major more than a blunder. This is should should define the shirk is setting up rivals partners. If this is the unforgivable sin, that if someone dies, so he's saying that we don't believe Jesus is God. Then he turns us says, Well, we are

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

Gods in a way so

00:43:46--> 00:44:20

don't believe Jesus God, who's much better than you? He said, That's what we believe we don't believe Jesus is God and then he goes on turns to him says well you know in a way we are godson where God's what you're doing what can he say? Like if he's saying like, I don't mean it like that is their content what what from Well, first of all, it's not about you know, why didn't mean because your words mean something they matter. But you can't say Tilak and say I didn't mean it. Yeah, didn't mean or I can say I divorced and then I didn't mean or you can say heaviness Yeah, I'm gonna kill you but the oil I mean don't lock you up lock you you can't the police come on that's the

00:44:20--> 00:44:54

police come and you just said no, you take it back. I would just joking. Yeah. So we know God has given us rationale and reason things matter. Words. Don't joke with this is not I would advise him to say a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah to make his whole soul and to desist from African and to study. Actually, if you read the Quran, I mean, this is good, right? It is easy. You say it every day. If you're praying five times a day practice in gym, almost even if you just go Juma. You're saying the shahada say it again. And now mean this correction make a Toba meaning like repent say, Okay, this was wrong. He can't fix it what you need to do and see the thing is, I can

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

almost guarantee you that he doesn't read the Quran with understanding like a translation at least. Right big

00:45:00--> 00:45:19

because in the Quran you have all this what we're by the way people you know this is not me and you talk we're taking these and giving evidences you're quoting I'm quoting from the Quran so don't think that it's like two of us are sitting here and just pointing fingers we're just messengers right after the there's no way to smash a car now people but when we say

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

ability you know I cannot say this like we want him to fix himself

00:45:26--> 00:45:31

but the problem is you know with this kind of lifestyle and you know people just mess around then

00:45:33--> 00:46:04

you can program with all these rappers and everyone's thinking there a god damn I got some I got all this stuff and that creeps in your beat your program you get hit with these. These spiritual diseases. You're an idol, right? Everyone's soul centered towards you. Where this eagle takes hold of you. And now you start saying dangerous things like that. Like what's his name? Kiana when he said I am a God who said Kanye West right one Kanye was Kanye West right and then he walked into a pole and smashed his head and

00:46:08--> 00:46:30

that's what Kanye West he also said yeah, he says God right yeah. And then he walked into a pole into the Bible he should be then according to the Bible that he's not a Christian he's not a Christian he left Christian a apostate from Christian heretic by that statement Yeah, playing with these coins was shot Yeah. And then he kind of always ends up hitting his head and he says it's on it's on YouTube.

00:46:32--> 00:46:41

I feel bad for the guy man. You know May God help him and guide him I mean, I mean I want the best for everybody this is out of any malicious attempts that we have here are trying to put someone down

00:46:43--> 00:47:19

we're just up but this is this is some especially with the youth when they hear someone like this saying these things and then next you know you got kids mimicking because they mimic they see you and they start thinking yeah, I'm a god your god we're all getting you can't say this is like you said, this is Schick and we live on Tauheed pure monotheism and monotheism is what's going on with our with our living a morally upright life. We're human beings we do good deeds, but it's not by our good deeds is by God's grace and mercy. We're all sinners sinner. Yeah, we're all we have so many mistakes. And it's sometimes you know, we know ourselves, we know we're not sitting here, being all

00:47:19--> 00:47:44

godly and think we're all good melayani cover our mistakes and our sins, you know, we're not worthy of that. But his mercy is so great, that we hope that you'll accept us and this is what we hope for. I mean, let's let's continue on great advice for a con God willing anybody else who's fallen into that may God Almighty protect us from this and may take the advice and see the good that we're trying to deliver to him and others.

00:47:51--> 00:48:10

And that tells you everything because we know man and creed that okay, let's say an alien created that okay, who created the alien? It like the Big Bang thing is like the whole thing, but like, right, who pushed the *ing button? Let me just from nothingness, there was this there was some songs, dancing.

00:48:12--> 00:48:24

Thank you is impossible. So how did that something that's even be created? Right? Like, whenever you in doubt, just think about that. And it'll bring you all the way back. Because you can't explain that. I

00:48:25--> 00:48:39

I think though, a part of the reason why people may land on God or want to believe that something did start from nothing, is because we want explanations. Our species wants to answer. Faith, it's

00:48:42--> 00:48:48

good, it's hard to that's why oh, why we're here what we're doing. That's good for us. It's really playdough

00:48:49--> 00:48:53

what do we do? How do we get this we're saying humans, we're naturally nosy creatures.

00:48:55--> 00:49:32

And I'm happy to see these kinds of conversations when people are talking about this than the other. But invite us to the conversations invite us some set of conversations, people have knowledge, you know, people who are also loving to talk about these things, you know, scholars of Islam and whatnot and others you know, like yourself and whatnot to come and sit and have these proper because there's a lot of questions here some some and I like the points he's making, you know, who pushed the button who started everything and right, but then the one thing about the faith in Islam is not blind faith. Yeah, no doubt. I mean, yeah, I'm not a scholar. So they should invite the scholars I think

00:49:32--> 00:49:47

we have some good scholars that could answer the questions and But see, that's the thing is such a disconnect between these youth and the scholars, sadly. And hopefully we that's what we're trying to do is bridge that we try to bridge that gap. Yes, yeah. Now

00:49:48--> 00:50:00

it's faith 100%. You have Alladhina Meena believed those who believe in the unseen but to reach that level. There's always some

00:50:01--> 00:50:10

connection. And God has made it quite simple. It's not so complicated, because he has given us the ability to observe and to reason and to understand.

00:50:11--> 00:50:11

And

00:50:13--> 00:50:19

people say, Well, he says we want explanations. Yeah, exactly. But there's a difference between explanation and evidence.

00:50:21--> 00:50:37

Right? People can explain things as much as they want people would like that's a good explanation. But do I really? Is that an evidence do I believe? Why God the Almighty when He created everything, and he has sent His messengers and his message she has given evidence?

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

It's simple. I think it's very simple. Because see, people are at different levels of comprehension and rationale, you got very advanced people, academics, PhDs, research, evidence based scientific method. And you got your typical dishwasher and streetsweeper, who is very simple, right? Both have a brain,

00:51:01--> 00:51:18

but they both have the ability to observe. And when you read through the Quran, Allah God, the Almighty, is focusing people to use observation to look around, specifically in creation and in themselves as well. If you unphysical

00:51:19--> 00:51:29

right, in a few Holika sanowara, it will art Allah say, look around. And today in the morning, I was just looking at a video of a state. Imam Shafi Rahim, Allah.

00:51:30--> 00:51:48

And he said, that people want the existence of you know, of God in the creation of the heavens and the stars and the moon, which is really amazing. If you think about it, just to study that just to look at just sunrise and sunset, the perfection of that system,

00:51:49--> 00:52:29

how it changes with the season, how at some points is constant, different parts of the world is different. Just that, that complexity of that system, there's no way be a dishwasher or PhD candidate or doctor, they're both gonna be like, Man, there's no way that this is just something happened. And I want some explanation. Right away, you will know that there is a Creator, come on. If you're honest enough, you will know there is a Creator, just by observing that. So Imam Shafi said, Forget about the he said, For me, it's just in the leaf

00:52:31--> 00:52:40

of a the dude tree. He said, he said, why he said, look at it, he said the cow will eat it. And pure milk will come out of it.

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

Right. And then he said the bee will take from its pollen, and that amazing honey will come out of it. And then he said the the, the,

00:52:55--> 00:52:59

I guess the warmth that becomes you know, into where do you take the

00:53:02--> 00:53:03

what is it the

00:53:05--> 00:53:11

the material that you make clothes from? Yes, right from the warms, you know, he's like, it will eat it and it'll give you

00:53:13--> 00:53:27

the string you know, I don't know what to call it, I forget, forgive me. And he said, Look at that. They're all eating the same leaf and look what you're getting out of it. Or in the the deer will eat it and out of the deer you'll make musk, pure musk.

00:53:29--> 00:54:04

They're all eating the same look at look at that system, they're all eating the same thing processing the same thing. You're looking at it pure milk, pure honey, pure misc or a perfume, and the string that you make clothes from. Right, amazing. So just from there, you can know that there is a Creator, just from the simple observation Subhanallah that's a whole different discussion, we can go down how people got to the state of just disbelief in something that's just so obvious. And then and then giving people who almost

00:54:05--> 00:54:39

credibility and people think that they're intelligent coming from a state of academia or whatnot, because you have a lot of academics, writers, I mean, it shows that you can be the dumbest person smart and many different facets but you can be almost like just crippled in this area of common sense. You know, to deny when the signs are all around you. I don't think he's being dumb I think as a process him said that is it's arrogance, arrogance denying the truth. So it's just that's that that's the Kibera now that arrogance now you're too too proud, too arrogant to go ahead and, and that's why

00:54:40--> 00:54:42

with the academia

00:54:44--> 00:54:59

it was in 2000. In early 2000, Steinberg whatever his name is, he had that documentary intelligence expelled. No intelligence allowed. Yes, right. And he went and researched this whole mafia and academia, the expel creationists right

00:55:00--> 00:55:39

who, through their studies of the universe or whatever size they were in? They said, Look, we can go with this, or Darwin is we have to believe that there's a creator. It's because all the evidence is pointing that way. So they lost their funding, they got kicked out of the academic circles. It was like a mafia. So that that's really an eye point, that documentary because it shows like it's a mirage that setup like, Oh, if you're smart, you're intelligent that now you deny that No, right? There's actually many of these academic pigs academia, that they come to the conclusion exactly what they're shut down. They're blacklisted. Exactly. By the mafia. Yeah, they lose everything. Yeah. And

00:55:39--> 00:56:19

then they've had studied Oxford study and others that now you know, multimillion dollar studies that confirm that innate that's an innate nature to believe right in your higher being wired, you're wired to believe that the gods spot they call. So this is really profound. And just one last thing here. I Salam provides all the evidence, everything you need to know that it is from the truth, but the faith comes in and unseen. You don't see a lot of details after there's a lot of details, right. So the driving force to get you there, but now there's some things you have to have faith you got to fit. You can't see the Hellfire you can't see paradise. Exactly. You can't see angels. You can't see

00:56:19--> 00:56:23

the angels. You're not seeing the prophets in this life. You can't see your Creator. Yeah.

00:56:25--> 00:56:36

And then people. Yeah, this is some really good things for people to contemplate and think about. We're almost done. Let's continue on. Like lone despair.

00:56:37--> 00:57:04

Of, of that purpose and purpose and magic in life is is make me crazy. Yeah. But but there's also I think, beauty in that if you can find it, we're, we're impossible. Humans are impossible. We're on this planet. As far as we know, we're the only intelligent species as far as we can see, and we can't explain it. We don't know what we're doing here. And so there's a reason to be depressed about that. But also, there's a reason to go there first. That's, that's,

00:57:06--> 00:57:15

that's incredibly cool. He said a few things. We're the only intelligent species on I want you to touch upon that. And then the other thing is that we don't know what we're doing here.

00:57:16--> 00:57:37

Why are we here? Pretty much, right? So obviously, we're not the only ones because God did create what's called the jinn I thought about the exactly right now they're their reason and rationale are not exactly like ours were superior. And we've been given certain knowledge and that is clearly evident from what God has told us.

00:57:39--> 00:57:40

However.

00:57:44--> 00:58:23

Purpose wise, we don't know what we're doing. Of course, we know exactly what we're doing. That's the whole point. To discover what you need to do. And to try to do it you live your life in trying to do it. No one can claim that we're doing amazing or perfect, some people are better. Some people are not so better for Taco llama, SOTA. Don't fear Allah as much as you can do your best. Right now, are we comparing people who now have the guidance versus those who don't? Right? So the people are having the guidance, even those are not, you know, perfect, right? We're just struggling. We're trying, we're trying to do the best. But at least you know the direction. But if you don't have

00:58:23--> 00:58:31

Islam, if you don't have Islam, you're lost. You're lost. Okay, so now he's talking from that perspective? I think so I think a lot of

00:58:32--> 00:59:03

and this ties into something I'm very passionate about mental health. Yeah, I think a lot of the depression, anxiety is just that void of not knowing your purpose, as you said, that's a good analysis. So few people fill it up with alcohol, drugs, sex, there's that. Because there's an existential crisis that has hit humanity. You're you don't know what your purpose is. Yeah, you might do sports, you might do a podcast, you might this but these are very temporary, then you get bored again, you're like, Okay, what's next. And that's why

00:59:05--> 00:59:35

ethics and morality changed so much because people are chasing the new hit. Because it's not enough. But when you have your true purpose, and you understand you're supposed to be worshiping your Creator, and you're supposed to spread this message, then this satisfies that existential void is going to be always work to be done. But I think most people are depressed today. Because of this. Their souls are not understanding they're not in,

00:59:36--> 01:00:00

in sync with that fit through with the purpose that God created for him and the souls are screaming out of pain. And this is what depression is. Logan is a good example of somebody who was brought up in a Christian household, but things just don't make sense. It doesn't add up the answers aren't not there, but he would qualify great for many people who go through the same thing. I've interviewed you

01:00:00--> 01:00:34

Hundreds of them clumps. You're one of them. You're born in a Christian household back. This is not to put down anybody from any other religions, but it's just obvious fact. You also you are getting answers to your questions you are talking to the higher ups if I remember correctly, just any other. Islam had the answers. If Logan comes, and with an open heart open mind looks at Islam. Objectively he's looking for the if he's looking sincerely asking the creator for guidance, you think you'll find what you found in Islam? I think if he's sincere, he's sincere, no doubt about it. No doubt about it. I don't I often think about that, I think because when you look at many of the manmade

01:00:34--> 01:01:04

religions, and you look what they call you to ancestor worship, pagan worship to self worship all the sudden when you look at Islam, I don't think any intelligent human being who doesn't have this arrogance, who's yearning inside and he's asking the Creator guide me I want to know why I'm here that the Creator wouldn't guide them I think you have to take what are my minds me sorry. Reminds me if you take one step God take 10 towards you had to coordinate Hadith right? So you come walking God will come Allah will come running is correct one I remember

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

earlier when I was

01:01:08--> 01:01:09

looking into Islam,

01:01:11--> 01:01:15

and just looking back at the first stage in my life,

01:01:16--> 01:01:49

I was arrogant because I used to fight with the Muslims. And they would give me explanations and I would but I couldn't see it. Well, you are islamophobe I did not like Islam because that's how we were raised in Romania. That's why I asked because many Romanians and other even people in the area in the Balkans I don't there's they're just naturally they're right born and bred like almost islamophobe but I remember the guys who told me about Islam they told me the same thing because Islam is not a complicated it's not at some guys gonna tell you one thing and other guys gonna tell you something else. It's the same thing on people from that area more hardheaded, more likely

01:01:50--> 01:02:27

but the weird thing is I think the due to the fact that I was arrogant I couldn't see it. However, when I started going through a depression and some problems my mind open up and I was humbled so now when the Bosnian brothers talk to me, I saw it you know what I mean? It's because I was humbled that arrogance was taken away from because I was in depression all that much oh cool thing that I had before fighting with them so you guys Muslims this what is this Islam even though they tell you what Islam is God one God. Islam is all Prophets had the same message the same thing?

01:02:28--> 01:03:13

I couldn't see it. Yeah, when I was humbled when I was pretty much on my knees and suffering at the time my ears and my mind was doing I was like, Okay, makes sense. Big difference. Big difference so Logan Paul, as we covered that there is another creation people call the spirit world and whatnot the jinn. Right? And then also this part about a lot of people get it like they don't get this point. So because Aladdin and the genie Yeah, and all that like who does that? Right? I really, it explains so many things in this world. So many you have fallen on the ground. Can we say on identify flying objects on my BGA possessions? Our mental health issues, haunted? Houses cemetery all that's

01:03:13--> 01:03:18

explained by this belief that we have in the don't don't look at Aladdin in the lamp.

01:03:20--> 01:03:54

Okay, the last thing that they talked about, and I want to touch upon because it has to be go back. When we talked about this was Michael Jackson. Okay, a con. You remember? Yeah, a con was mentioning some stories about Michael Jackson. And Michael Jackson. When we talked we spoke about him last time bring us up to speed. What happened with Michael Jackson towards the end of his life? You mentioned you had an inside source? Right? I mean, Jackson. Yeah. So some people have been saying that someone said this and always not real and another brother, I'm not gonna name them. You know, I don't want to get into any discussions, fights. I'm just giving you what I know. Okay, so they're saying No,

01:03:54--> 01:04:03

Brother Gabriel, wrong. Michael Jackson never became Muslim. Also, they say we spoke to who I don't know who and he said you're wrong. And he never became Muslim. Whatever. Right.

01:04:04--> 01:04:13

So again, I'm gonna repeat the issue the story, right, and I'm not gonna name the brother, even though I know his name. And I he was my neighbor when I was in Abu Dhabi.

01:04:15--> 01:04:54

And he was basically working with Michael Jackson's brother, Jermaine Jackson. Yeah. And he would come every like two months because basically, he was going to Africa and doing these documentaries. He was the cameraman. Okay, and he told me Look, we keep it on the hush, but he became Muslim. And I am with Jermaine. Like, I know he became the guy so this is the cameraman. Oh, Jermaine Jackson, who was your neighbor in Abu Dhabi. Yes, exactly. Getting this information. You'll be going working two three months with German he will come back to hotel because his wife was a teacher, and his son was there. Sometimes my wife would babysit their son and we'll play my kids. And yeah, it's like we know

01:04:54--> 01:05:00

he became Muslim Hamdulillah you know for sure what our percent that's what he told me. I believed and be

01:05:00--> 01:05:25

because he was working with remain, but they said we keep it on on the law. I mean, why am I saying it? Because I know he didn't tell me don't tell anyone but he said we just keep it on the law, whatever. That's the way it is. And in the end, Allah Allah, but this is what he has told me, I believe him. And I hope not because we go, well, let's be honest, you know, people they love, they liked Michael Jackson, you know,

01:05:26--> 01:05:36

I feel I felt he got dealt a very bad hand at the end, when people start saying some things came on after that, that he got set up, even the guys to fall, I think he committed suicide or something.

01:05:38--> 01:06:11

That young boy that, you know, his parents was trying to get him to say things that he did things to him and all that. I don't know, I think that's what he was in huge depression. When I was analyzing it, I was thinking like, hey, you know, I mean, you know, you never know I mean, did Allah, the Almighty guide him at the end at the end now before it because a lot of times people will come to Islam, they'll have that awakening moment, but then they fallen back into all of the trips and tracks of the dunya. And that lifestyle, took the shahada and then Allah took them because we know when someone comes into Islam, all their previous sins, were baby No, I don't know a lot of person I

01:06:11--> 01:06:29

believe it. But Allah knows best personally that the brother told me he was very reliable brother. Hard working. Yeah, good family. Budget, Jermaine Jackson is definitely we know he's, he's a Muslim. Yeah. So this is his brother, Michael Jackson. And this is you're getting it from the cameraman. So

01:06:30--> 01:07:13

alright, so we covered a lot here. I'm covered a lot. You're also you before we conclude, talk to us about you helping to develop motivated you to you're helping to develop high value men. Right with these courses or trainings that you do. Let's talk a little bit about that. Right. So we have the Muslim Alpha Man course. Again, people get caught in the semantics, please guys leave the semantics alone. It's just like the Danish while called the deen show. Is it the deen show? Is that the show? Man? Yeah. It's been going on for 18 years. Michelle, Alexander Hamilton, Alana, you know a lot of that. So it's helping men to reestablish their masculine to be men the way Allah created us on the

01:07:13--> 01:07:52

natural way. Men are men. Women are women. Women are not men. Men are not women. Women cannot do a man do men, you know cannot do what women do. We can do certain things. Were you talking about brother we live in at the time of how many 100 Plus gents out with a villa. No way. No way. Let's let's just use the head that God gave us is the easiest, most clear things most evident thing. Okay. So in these courses, we help men to change their mindset to come back to the fitrah to build value in themselves to get close to their Creator and to work on themselves, their personal development, their physical, spiritual, emotional development, psychological psychiatric, you know, ability,

01:07:52--> 01:07:53

cognition,

01:07:54--> 01:08:35

how to just become a better man who can contribute. This is not just building value and just keeping it to yourself, is what you can do to spread the message of Islam to have a purpose. That's what the Muslim Alpha Man focuses on gives men a purpose changes their mindset wherever you are. You don't have to have a Bugatti you don't have to be top GE and all that. Right. There's so much talk about masquerade right now. Okay, when we start talking about these things that were working and doing these things, because we noticed that young children, young boys in Muslim countries, they lost their, their understanding of what is it is to be a man. This whole talk of red pill, it was not

01:08:35--> 01:09:17

even existent. Yeah. Okay, it was not even exist. It's not because it is because when you look at how the process was Howard the Sahaba, they were real men and their women were real women. Okay. And people try to use different exceptions here and there. Yesterday, I was talking to her brother Islam was the typical Muslim feminist objection. Or the general the Allahu Anhu was the was the, you know, businesswoman, right? And we're like, okay, you want to be like Khadija? Because you know, they call it that, right? So yeah, so you find all the tech talks, all the college and the business woman under this, meaning I can go outside, I can do whatever I want. I can put makeup, I can be you know,

01:09:17--> 01:09:54

I can leave the house. I don't need to listen to any man, independent woman. This is rubbish. This doesn't exist. If you want to be like a digital yawn, then really study her. So how does your Rhodiola number one, very obedient to the process and lamp never raised her voice to the process. And therefore Allah sent salam to him to the angel specifically to her yes. Right, because she never raised her voice never naturally and belligerent. She wasn't like that, you know? So if you want to be argumentative, though, no, I will say one thing they so and that's why Allah gave her special place in general when there's no loud noises. And the lemma says because she never raised her voice

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

to the processor. That's a really powerful point. So yeah, take this. This is the one of the Mothers of the Believers

01:10:00--> 01:10:43

So exam citing her then okay be like okay so start taking these notes now erase how she would got her that honor the last exam belongs to her wow that's the next point is she never herself gone and did all these things because that's how she married the process and because she hired him when she shaking hands hugging me but she was hiring Matt she was she hired them and the Prophet SAW Selim would go and do things and another man other men would basically run the errands for her so she didn't have sit downs not like face to face with with men and I like just mixing going all this putting stuff pushing shoving, talking loud being all out there doing stuff she was she had what's

01:10:43--> 01:11:08

called HIA or this this bashfulness right so let's look into these details These are facts P lingo checkbooks right and I'll throw a curveball in the air if you want to be like a digital audio Lohan okay, then start cashing out your bank account sister because Khadija will do Lohan, she spent all her money on the prof sauce when his dollar Yeah, everything every single cent on him when the Muslims got boycotted everything she had.

01:11:10--> 01:11:32

She spent it on the process. Because he was a high value man, she believed in his mission process and will not be someone who's like sleeping till 11 and doing nothing, no mission or nothing. Just say I'm the man Come on, give me the money now. He was a man on a mission. And she found so much value in him that put everything so if you want to be like Khadija sisters

01:11:35--> 01:11:38

but of course a real man was on a mission you know, not some

01:11:39--> 01:11:41

sorry any loser who is sleeping all the time and

01:11:43--> 01:11:55

I don't know what to do. I'm depressed. I'm lost. You know, May Allah help the brothers? You know? I mean, we have some brothers who need the support Danny May Allah guide us all. But so that's my little curveball for the for the feminist was.

01:11:57--> 01:12:01

So this is developing men at a time where people are

01:12:02--> 01:12:03

in a state of confusion

01:12:04--> 01:12:57

not knowing so this course Michelle is focused on that we do also some practical things we go like horse riding. We do some MMA some you know, Jujitsu we just had some nicer here at Reza which you know Academy here mashallah with some nice some nice rolling by about 15 rounds mashallah so we encourage men to be to be strong men have to be strong, yet merciful. have limits yet kind right be assertive, yet loving and passionate. Pride. You see the balance? Yeah, this is a real man. Right to have courage. yet? No, no arrogance, right? These these are the see fat are the attributes of real men. Not that I say because when we look and study again, the profs awesome. Specifically, you'll

01:12:57--> 01:13:21

find these in him. So work on that. And mental health counseling, getting the man to get out of their mind, where they always just stuck there, right? Stuck? Right? Be brave, who cares if people criticize? As Allah Sinequan don't they do not fear the blame of the blamers? Right? Do not fear people. As long as you are trying to do your best, you're gonna make mistakes, I guarantee you, you will make mistakes.

01:13:23--> 01:14:03

And that's why a lot of people are in this limbo. Because like, what if I make a mistake? Of course, you're gonna make me yucky. Stuff like the Prophet SAW. Selim was corrected by Allah subhanaw taala. Right. The process is correct in the Quran, and it's there till the day of judgment for everyone to read. And he was corrected, who are you not to make you've got to make mistake, but don't stop. Don't stop keep pushing a woman is not because we are making mistakes as men and we have problems. We should recognize that we have a lot of issues as men, a lot of weaknesses. But guess what, that doesn't justify now for them to become men to take our positions, because they're not created to do

01:14:03--> 01:14:04

that they cannot do it.

01:14:05--> 01:14:48

They cannot do it. And if they try to do it, the process I've said already that it's going to be a failing system, where people are like, they like they try to explain this what the process and said, So work towards that. Let's help men and help women to be women. This is the beauty. This is the amazing thing. The greatest scholars and warriors of this ummah have come forward. Look at the great value and that Allah has given women yet the society is convincing that you're a slave and some made and you should be ashamed yourself and you should be a man that's when you're going to get your real value. But I thought you hate metal. It's but you want to be a man look at the contradiction and the

01:14:48--> 01:14:49

confusion I will the biller

01:14:50--> 01:14:59
