So, my name is Salma.
I will be the guest on the deen show telling you about my life and don't go anywhere. We'll be right back.
Bismillah Salaam Alaikum. Peace be with you. I'm Eddie, your host of the deen show. And this week, oh, man, you are going to be amazed. This is an incredible human, an incredible human being that you're going to meet, amazing person sent out, got a chance to spend a little bit of time with them, we got his interview. And this will help all of us who complain, we just complain and day and night, when you look at this brother's situation, and how buoyant and happy he is, how he's passing his test. And he doesn't have many of the things that we have. And you're going to get to see that firsthand when we come back here in the deen show. Now, just before we cut out and go to this week's
show, just a friendly reminder for myself, first and foremost, and for all the millions of viewers that are out there. It's Ramadan, we need to get the most out of it. Hum did Allah all praises to the Creator of the heavens and earth has given us life, that we can experience another Ramadan. So this training ground, we want to develop ourselves, that's right to be the best human beings that we can be. So we gotta watch out for all the evil things that will not be conducive to the development of our spiritual side, our taqwa, our God consciousness, developing ourselves, so we can get and have a closer relationship with our Creator. This is what the plan is, this is what we need to be
doing. So then we'll have a boost, we'll get pumped up. And we'll be ready for the rest of the year. And if the Lord gives us life, we'll be back at it again. Because the demand goes up and down. And this is the time to all the extra acts of worship, to really refrain from every evil vise that's out there. It's tough, it's not easy. But you know what, as you go higher up, you want to get that PhD, you want to get that doctorate, there's less people in class isn't there. So the higher you are in developing yourself, you know, what is going to take a little more patience is going to take a little more commitment. But along those you can do it. So he wants to bring out the best in you. So
you can have the higher levels agenda. That's right, we want to get to paradise. This life is short, it's going to end at any time. So the reminder is a specially during this month, we have to be cautious about all the bad things that are out there. And you know what? Some of those things now are the gossiping, the backbiting, getting in other people's business, saying things about people, as the Prophet peace be upon him said to say something that your brother wouldn't like, when he's not in front of you, when his presence is not there as backbiting, but then to say something about her or him. That's not true. That's slander. So we have to be careful, have our tongue moist, moist
with the remembrance of law, the creed tour, not with things that are of no benefit that the angel on the right, he's not writing down the good. He's writing down the bad. And another thing we have to be aware of. So if we train ourselves now, it's going to be easier for the rest of the year, when we get out of Ramadan. This is the training ground. You know it, I'm just reminding you and myself. And another thing we have to stay away from, there's a lot of good that can be accomplished with a lot of the social media tools that are out there. So I don't want to just speak generally, I want to give you some tangible to work on, you know, we get taken away with a lot of the technological
advances. And Facebook is one of them. Millions of people got it. And we're on there chatting away.
With chatting away. A lot of times we're chatting away with useless chit chatter jibber jabber, and you know, what is the angel on the right is he writing the good deeds? What are we doing? Are we refraining from things that we should be refraining from are we getting into you know, it starts off with the innocent Hello, how are you? you expose yourself? And now what happens? Now you end up talking to the opposite gender without your parents permission. The women especially strike oppose. And now everybody's like, Hey, you looking so fine there honey, and what happens? Now your head gets a little big. And now what happens? You fully yourself. And what happens now is harder to
disattached from this, you're liking the attention but is this pleasing to Allah?
Is the attention of all the boys out there more pleasing than the attention of Allah. Same thing for the young men out there? You posted all the pictures, maybe of women that shouldn't be on your page. you're exposing yourself and your body, your aura
exposing your body and you putting things out there that wow, we can't believe as Muslims that these things are up on your accounts man. You need to change
Especially during this month, we need to refrain we are Muslims, sisters, brothers, please. Now is the time. Get away from the useless jibber jabber chatter. don't expose yourselves out there. The wolves are on the hunt, and then looking to get those good sisters. They're out there. And same thing for the brothers. Don't get caught off guard, you see something? It's like arrow through the heart. And now you're in mind, what does it increase? No, it decreases and you're looking for looking at things you shouldn't be looking at. You should be lowering the gaze.
You should be staying away from these things. But you know what, we get tricked, we get trapped because shakedowns the pimp, he's the biggest pimp and he's looking to pimp us. So please, now is the time to refrain from all the evil things, sisters of this month, you've got a chance to observe the hijab. Don't take it off at the end of Ramadan. Don't turn the corner and put the tight jeans and when nobody's looking, don't do that. These are tangible things. These are real things in the real world that we're facing the issues. Brother, you're in the mustard you ain't swearing or cursing, but you turn the corner and you're speaking French. And I'm not talking french fries or
French food I'm talking about the foul language is coming out of your mouth so these are just a few things that we need to be aware of were Muslims were once with consciously submitted to whom? To a man to a monkey No. We first submitted to the one who's created this whole universe and everything in it. And he's got a great reward for us. He's got a great prize is the ultimate prize of Jenna. Get your eyes hypnotized to that prize? Stay away from many of the R rated movies and is Ramadan you refraining from what from food and drink. But now you're watching the big screen. You flipping through the channels and promiscuity in women naked, and men naked and they kiss in an American
Idol. And again, you lose in your fast You don't even know you're starving yourself. But you know what, it's all going out the window. Because again, we're not watching what we should not be watching. And that's the reminder that I want to remind myself and my brothers and sisters out of the love that we love you hear at the deen show. So please, these are some practical things that are going on. So if you find yourself Your mind is going down, check yourself you got some CD or some music in the car, bobbing your head to 50 cents or Lady Gaga, Google and all that other nonsense. these are these are the things that do not help us or bring us closer to the Creator of the heavens
and earth. They don't remind us about paradise, the day of judgment, the hereafter doing good, they take us away from doing good. And we ended up falling into trickery. We ended up falling into things that decrease our image. So please, this is the advice that I give you, especially during this month that we strengthen up our selves. We walk straight we proud to be Muslims, once again who has submitted to the will of the One God acquiring peace by doing all the good things that he's told us to do the same way Jesus, Moses, all the righteous predecessors, all of them did this in the last and final messenger sent to mankind. His sooner is the way that we need to follow and we need to
this month really get to know it. Tune into the deen show tune into peace to that there's so many other media outlets, stay away from the things that will only hinder you from growing in the deen from growing in your relationship with the one who created you, but will only decrease you and you know what death hits you and you die in a bad state. And as Allah says, the creator says do not die except in a state of full submission. So when you're chatting away, and you're looking at something that you're not supposed to be looking at, you're doing some things you're not supposed to be doing. You know what they are? Ask yourself, is Allah pleased with me at this moment? Am I earning his
pleasure? Or you know what I'm getting closer to the fire? Oh Allah, please protect us from this. Please protect us from this and grant this judgin grant this your agenda. Let's be more in a constant state of self development according to how the creator Allah the Almighty has told us to be that's worshiping Him alone, following the sooner of the last and final messengers sent to mankind of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him the same way you would have been following Jesus Moses and all the messengers if you live in during their time. And this was the reminder to myself first and foremost, and to all my brothers and sisters in humanity. And my brothers and sisters and have
faith. I love you for the sake of a lot keep me and all of us at the deen show in your doors. Let's go on to meet brother son now. Son l in amazing, an amazing individual. You'll see in a moment when we come back peace sounding

This is your host again. I'm Dr. Mohamed, welcome to the deen show. Welcome to this unique episode that's so unique in our life in my life because I have a handicapped child and in the life of every Muslim let's hear from him now. We've heard from him that he is enjoying his life. He has a lot of readings he has a lot of hobbies. And he got some trophies because of his 100 law practicing sports with other people that would suit him so although he is this able this did not prevent him from practicing a normal life almost close to normal but tell me about your relationship with Allah with God. Are you are in a situation not like you're not like any regular or any normal human being you
are handicap. Tell me about your experience. does this affect your relationship?
With God do you thank Him? Do you still thank Him? Do you feel that something? What What is this? How can you describe your relationship with God? Well, I think
for giving me everything and even
like for me being disabled is not really like something that I hate because I get to learn things about being disabled and like, and I still have a great relationship. The last pronouns are you still you still love him? Yes. Okay. And you still do you pray the daily prayers? Yeah, I try as hard as I can. Mashallah. Mashallah, Mashallah, Mashallah, I think I want every viewer to learn from this. His disabled, as you see, he still prays, how about those people who are blessed with the full bodies? I want them to listen.
Oh, God, forgive me.
I'm sorry for that. Perhaps you've seen that I'm so touched by the words that come from his heart. And I envy him of doing this I asked him last product Allah to give him support. We see in the world, millions of people, if not billions, of people who enjoy their full body. However, they still they are not thankful to their Creator, they are not thankful to the God who created them with full and strong body. Let's enjoy talking to this wonderful brother. Now you have some few minutes now to talk to the whole world. What would you like? What is the message that you think because you have a unique experience? And you say that you enjoy your life? Even if you are disabled? What is the
message that you want to give to the viewers that have millions of people are watching unit? So what would you like to tell them? I would like to tell them how to enjoy their lives. Be thankful to a lot for whatever you have a lot of whatever you have, and whatever you don't because even whatever you done, why is that? Because you like Oh, wait, he made me he doesn't give you bad thing. So be thankful he doesn't? Yeah, so I love does not give you any better. Yeah, yes, but he may be testing us. This is part of the test that you are, every human being is going through a test. But the test is different. One of them may be handicap, the other one may be sick, the other one may be deprived
of children. The other one would be his intellect would be less than the intellect of others is not smart as you you're smarter than many people that I interviewed in my lifetime. So Allah is distinct everybody with a different test. And now what a Muslim should do when he or she is confronting a test, should we accept the test? Or should we reject it and become ungrateful to Almighty Allah? We should accept and be thankful to Allah
for testing us and try your hardest to do like whatever you can to
be thankful and happy and try and pass the test Mashallah, Mashallah. And now, we are talking about tests and passing the test. Do you believe that if you pass the test successfully, in this life, there is another later life? Do you believe in that? Yes. And do you believe that in that life, you will be given all the powers that any other human being will have? And you are hoping for that? Yes, you see, and is this a beauty of this religion that you feel hopeful? Yeah, cuz you know that you may have a hard life now, but
better, you know, they have the afterlife, if you will, paradise, okay. No, no, I am your interviewer. I'm older than you, perhaps three or four times. If you want to give me an advice for me. What would you tell me to? Never like you have often always be happy. Never give up? Yeah. Always be happy. Yes. Thank you for this advice. And we'll we'll try to wrap up very quickly. And we'll take a break and then we'll come back. After taking this break. No problem. You can take my daughter to dinner. You and my daughter and me.
tell you something, it's natural, just created it and He created us to have a good time, we should have a good time. With our wives though.
Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. And most of the converts are women, not men, they see that the rules of Islam instead of constraining the rule, set them free.
Welcome back to the deen show. This is your host, Dr. Webb, Dr. Howard Muhammad interviewing where,
again, I think that you need to remember son of all the time because he's an example, a wonderful example that we rarely see such an example in our life nowadays, particularly for those who are disabled. And I mentioned in the beginning that I have one son who's disabled, and they wish that he would see what's going on, although he cannot communicate, but I'm quite sure that he will benefit from this. All the disabled people would see how cheerful he is, and how hopeful he is. And he still have some plans for the future. And I wish everybody would learn from him. Not only the disabled, but the abled when and I'm going to come back to them. But let me ask him first, tell me about your
future your dreams. What do you want to achieve? What do you want to happen? What if you ask God now First, let's ask you, if you ask God now what do you ask God to give you?
Like a better education, knowledge of his song, okay? Shall I like to become
anything in the medical field, the medical field to give you support this, this is not difficult for a lot. This is so easy for Allah if Allah wills, He will give you hills and He will give you your buddy back. And we asked a last panel dialer to give you this and I trust Allah and perhaps you have heard the story of the Prophet a you. He was so sick to the degree that his family members choose to carry him Yes, he could not move at all he to the degree that he lost his skin and he was in a terrible situation and the last panel dollar loved him. Then after some time when he passed the test Allah subhanaw taala gave him his body back and all his powers came back to him. So it's not
difficult. It's it's we just continue asking on my camera, that he will give you this inshallah, but tell me about your future. What do you want to do after 20 years after 10 years? What do you want to do? And get
inshallah become something in the medical field and the medical field you want to marry to work in the medical field and give information about Islam to people who have you know, need to know like that? And to work in the field of Dawa and teach people about this religion? Yes. What is good about this religion? You're 13 years old, you're not adult yet you're in the in the process of being an adult. Yeah. Tell me what attracts you to this religion, that you know that there is an afterlife that can be greater than
another life and death? Love Avada some people and I love
you love Allah, Allah, Masha, Allah, Masha. And this is where you get the comfort to your heart. You feel comfortable by belonging to this religion? Right? I'm proud of you to hear that. And again and again. Tell me something that do you when you pray? How can you pray? I sit in my chair, sit in your chair and do it like any other okay? You put your hand on your chair as possible. And when we bend over and you bent over? Yes. Oh, yes. So you do exactly the prayer as our traveling button sitting, sitting because when we are traveling in an airplane, for example, we sit on chairs and we do exactly as you said that we put our hands like this and we start reciting, then we bow a little bit,
then without more, and we finish it again and again. And again. I remind everybody who was so showing us Muslims and the Muslims use an example of a person who is disabled. Even though he does not miss his prayer. He does the prayer as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked us to do if you cannot do it while you are standing, you can do it while you are sitting. There is no excuse for the people to not to do the prayer. I want everybody to learn from this experience. And shame on us. If we have all the organs in our bodies, and all our limbs are in our bodies, and we don't perform our prayers. See, this is an example of two examples. The first time for me to meet him. And okay,
now I'd like you to, to hear from you a word for your parents who are wonderful parents, your father who's sitting here, I'm so sorry because I cannot communicate with him. I
No sign language. I wish I would have learned this. What would you like to tell your father? I love him and I'm thankful for him to, you know, help me and teach me. Everything that you need to know. You love your father, you thank him for helping you and for teaching you. You're enjoying your life with him. And you told me that you have some fun, and some good time with your sisters. Yes. Do you have the same time with your father? Yes.
Okay, play around
with each other. Okay. And the school that you go and you spend, how many times do you go to school? Do you go every day? Yes, I go every day. Tell me about do you enjoy the environment? Yes, I enjoy because everybody is from a different culture and Okay, you get to learn and people are really nice. They're good. Wonderful. Did you have chance to talk to some people about Islam in your presentations or in your discussions? at school? Oh, yeah. Like, my
aide who helps me? Yes. You know, he didn't know that out. What so so I told him and he learned a little. He learned a lot. Yes, ma'am. You're the one who gives you work? Yes. At school. You taught him about Islam. Yes. Yes. And he's happy about it. Yeah. And he believes that that the media talks negatively about Islam, the media is not fair to Islam, and you're giving him a clear picture of Islam, which the essence of it is peace, which which we hope that everybody would enjoy peace in the whole world. Yes. That's a wonderful thing. Okay, now, you are in the deen show. And have you ever seen some programs on the deen show? Yes. I've seen some
with a little girl. Yes. And rapper Loon. And you. And have you seen Yes. Okay. Okay. Why do you watch the deen show? Cuz it's
nice to know that like, there's
other Muslims who show how they live. And yeah, and it gives a real message of Islam to people to the Muslims and non Muslims. And I think that it's a good way of saying that this is this is our Islam. This is the mainstream, and we're trying to present as much as possible, the image of our beloved Prophet, what's his name? Mohamed Salah. Again, this is a great opportunity to thank Allah subhanaw taala for giving me this opportunity. But before I leave you, I wish I don't want to leave you I want to stay with you longer time. But I asked Almighty Allah to give you quick recovery and to give you the results back in sha Allah, God soon and we'll see you playing with us will come and
play with your channel. And if it doesn't happen, I hope it happens very soon inshallah. But I'm quite sure that Allah subhanaw taala will give you a much better life in later life. You're sure of that? Yes. I'm glad to meet you and I'm going to kiss your hand if you allow me. We are Lost Planet. Allah bless you and bless your family.
