And then next thing you know, looks like they're looking at a book of pornography. You would say what Yeah, it's becoming something that's part of the curriculum. And you have Muslims and Christians coming together, and other people have consciousness. And this is a tragedy for some, some we're getting very upset about it. Because people are speaking out and they're using that freedom of speech that we have to peacefully speak out. So we're going to be with somebody here today. I have a guest who's on the front lines, he's

00:02:05--> 00:02:17

And his final messengers, Muhammad peace be upon him. This is our religion, Islam, Islam, SR dijo.

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

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

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

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

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

so I'm a cool

00:03:08--> 00:03:26

how are you been? I've been pretty good. How was you just came back from Bosnia. I just came back from Bosnia was a great trip. You had some Chiapas and beutics did Klawock i did i do fantastic food really nice people. A lot of lessons to learn historical lesson some great and some very sad.

00:03:27--> 00:04:10

Some very sad you visited also the southern needs area there. We saw the building. We saw the graves. We saw the buildings in Mostar that had been bombed and shelled right next to our four star hotel was a building that's completely demolished from the blockade that was taking place. So when you learn about that history that happened 92 to 95. It's it's crazy. There's so many lessons to learn. But you can when you witness it and you see it, it really it hits home, it goes to your heart. This is like the Jerusalem of Europe. Exactly. Exactly. Exactly. And that, you know, people were witnessing and watching this on TV. They saw Sarajevo being surrounded, literally people are

00:04:10--> 00:04:51

crossing the street. And they're being sniped in a modern contemporary city with cameras, you know, being broadcast on the news all around the world. And it took three years for anyone to even do anything. The United Nations stood by and pretty much did nothing. So it's a pretty sad incident in the history of the modern world. I don't know if you've heard of the reporter, investigative journalist CJ Wheeler, many of you've heard of him. He did a report that they were doing Safari hunting, and it's one that has been kept completely hidden from view for the past 40 years. That is until now. That is until a former US government official came forward recently to testify that

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

wealthy Western tourists paid Bosnian Serb army forces for access to shoot Muslims in Sarajevo when the city was under siege during

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

The early 1990s making this the kind of human Safari that you see only in a dystopian Hollywood movie. But the horror that happened in Bosnia was no screenplay. It was real. And these grisly details had been revealed in the soon to be released documentary. Stereo vo Safari. Yes, I mean, now we'll discuss a swatch of the security and I'm Safari than you would in a soliloquy. methodologists DeMatteo yet another more Bitna Rasta snack barista quit blockchain, there'll be a it will be quickly should see and cookie Platina thermopane, the blogger, you know, people's Safari hunt for animals. So according to him, he looked into this and hence the witnesses and whatnot. I saw this

00:05:42--> 00:06:20

report that he did that people were flying in from other countries, just like you're describing, have said I was surrounded, right? Yeah. So people were coming. So for people that know Safari hunting, this is where you go to South Africa places you're going to shoot down the atom and hunting humans. And there are people are paying to go ahead and snipe Muslims. This is insanity. This is this is when you know people have literally gone above and beyond any type of basic humanity in consciousness at all. Yes. It's crazy. And I usually recommend people because they travel here. They're everywhere to put it on your destination. Absolutely. to Bosnia. Absolutely. For sure. For

00:06:20--> 00:06:58

sure. It's it's not that expensive. It's beautiful place as clean water clean. They say the cleanest water, cleanest air best forests in Europe. You got Islamic history there. You got your halal food, you got Muslims there. And there's so much important history to learn modern and his ethnic and classical his beautiful country. Yeah, sure. I'm not just saying that because that's where my family's from. But you were just there, it reminded me of it. So we're talking about it. And I really like when people go in the experience that you're here than you're you're around. So beautiful man. See the old machines feel the other man. See, you know, see the people. It's really,

00:06:58--> 00:07:42

really amazing. Yeah, beautiful. So another thing brings us on to speed. There's there's a lot going on now, with this whole movement. It seems like you were you were talking about this individual green. What's his name? Glenn Greenwald, Glenn Greenwald. And meanwhile, yeah, he's one of the main people behind the intercept. News is a big deal as investigative reporter who himself is gay. Yeah, I mean, he was talking about recently at a clip about how the rainbow movement has just gotten completely out of hand, because now they're in a position of power. And he was basically making the point that when people are in positions of power and authority, they begin to go and oppress those

00:07:42--> 00:08:18

people who are in weaker positions. So it's easy when you're not in the position of power, to say, like, you know, what, look at these people who are in power, they're oppressing all of us. But then when you get in a position of authority and power, you start doing the same thing. And this is exactly what's happening with the movement. And when it's gotten taken, it's been taken too far. When it's basically the idea to that you must accept this type of behavior, this life type of lifestyle, you must accept it as being a normal manifestation of you know, humanity, and you're forced to accept that and if you don't, then you're going to be penalized for it. That's an abuse

00:08:18--> 00:08:54

and a misuse of power. And that's what's happening today. I just want to make a disclaimer, because obviously, we're in America, you know, pretty much your your learning, man, there's a thing called What freedom of religion Yes. And freedom of speech, freedom of speech, so we're not calling towards any violence or not at all. Anything that will be breaking any kind of laws. We're just informing, practicing these two things for freedom of religion, freedom of speech, this part of the Constitution, right, exactly. Yeah. So I just wanted to make that disclaimer. And I wanted you to get your opinion because it goes into what we're talking about. Sin Dearborn as a school board

00:08:54--> 00:09:10

meeting is shut down early by the fire marshal. It was a scene of absolute pandemonium of the Dearborn school board meeting this evening, as hundreds of parents came out to protest a handful of books that are in the school libraries, books that some parents say a pornographic.

00:09:12--> 00:09:54

It's called this book is gay by Jonah Dawson, and it has some, like chapter nine, the ins and outs of gay sex decorum was lost inside the school board meeting, as parents yelled and screamed, demanded to be heard. That's when the fire marshal stepped in. And she's actually saying that there's a direct targeting Muslim children. Are you seeing this? 100% 100% not like 90% This is 100%. I was informed about this in California, in my local school district, Santa Ana and Anaheim school district where we have a lot of Muslim refugees coming from different countries. Some of them their native language is not even English. So they have they speak you know, from Afghanistan, so to

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

speak, pushed or whatever other languages. They're from Syria, so they speak Arabic. And what happened was one of my

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

A friend's a Christian friends. She forwarded me a she's a teacher in the school district. So she forwarded me, Brenda, she's been on your show before Brenda Lipson. Yeah, Brenda, lab sec. So she forwarded me years ago, this is years ago, a curriculum for the school system, which is basically in Arabic, in Pashto in all these different languages that Muslims are speaking. And it's talking about how, yeah, you might have heard, you know, someone might have told you that, like in the Quran, it talks, you know, it's against homosexuality, or saying that it's sinful, you shouldn't do it. But that's actually that's actually not true. And they start quoting verses from the Quran to like,

00:10:36--> 00:11:12

twist it around and justify in the native language. So, you know, you don't even have that you didn't even have that stuff in English yet. And it's already being translated into Arabic, into Pashto into like different languages where they're clearly targeting the Muslim community. And I think the reason why they're doing that is because people were coming from those countries, they have a good foundation of like Islamic ethics in them. And they're like, well, we need to get to these people, we need to get to their kids very quickly, before they can, you know, say something or do something or whatever it is. So it is definitely a brainwashing campaign that has been planned

00:11:12--> 00:11:31

out for years. And it's been launched actually in California for years. And now we're starting to see it in all the other states. So I'm getting I'm getting news reports from from Muslims, and in every other state that say, Hey, this is what's happening. Now. I'm like, Well, this is what's been happening in California for the past five years, six years, maybe even 10 years.

00:11:32--> 00:12:08

Is the Alliance or the alliance is growing now with with Christians and Muslims, Christians who are fed up with this. I know Patrick and David, he was actually trying to get Muslims, this is what I like he was going in a really good direction. And he was had some Christian higher up on his program he was talking about, okay, let's, let's look past some of the differences. But there is not too many. I mean, there are some obviously we don't believe you know, that Jesus God, Son of God, there's only one God, okay, we don't have to get into to all that right. Now we get the elephant out of the room. Right, exactly what says, Believe in pure monotheism, and we love Jesus and etc, etc.

00:12:09--> 00:12:47

That's out of the way. Now, let's save the kids. Exactly. So he was kind of saying the similar thing. Exactly. Are we seeing this? Now? Let's bring that live size is a good example. This is a Christian, she's somebody who's been on the program before? Yes, yes, we're exactly seeing this. And you know, after 911, there was, you know, discrimination, there was Slama phobia is kind of like there was a suspicion against Muslims, by especially the Christian right, we're seeing that now we're seeing this as an opportunity for kind of changing this entire thing around and I'm seeing this happening. So at school board meetings, we have Muslims and Christians both speaking up. And

00:12:47--> 00:13:21

sometimes the Muslims are the most vocal ones at the board meetings. And I've like Christian, my Christian friends are reaching out and saying, like, you know, what you guys are, you guys are like role models for us, you know, like the way in which you're addressing this issue, the way in which you're concerned for your kids. We're so happy we wish we would see even more from the community we need to work together. I had, there was this new navigating differences document that came out from many scholars and everything. One of my Christian friends reached out and said, You know what, I wish we had something like this, from the Christian church, or all the different churches kind of

00:13:21--> 00:13:58

got together and signed it. I wish one of my rabbis friends told me, I wish we had something where we could have like 200, rabbis signing a document saying, Hey, this is what we state about, you know, homosexuality, about gender nonconformity. These are our principles. And this is where we don't compromise. And this is where we draw the line. I wish we had something like that. So people are looking at the Muslim community and saying, Wow, like, you know, these guys really have taken the next step. And I think that's because for some reason, I think Muslims are very nice, they're a little bit extra concern about what's going to happen to their children. And now that the children,

00:13:58--> 00:14:31

you know, Muslims have always been a little bit concerned about this, from even an adult perspective, but now, you're talking about your kids, you know, and Muslims are very family values are very strong. So it's like someone's doing this to your kids. It's like, Listen, man, you gotta discriminate against me. You're gonna say some bad stuff about me. Okay? You know, I'm gonna, I'm gonna stand up. I'm gonna say some stuff. But you do that to my kids. You've crossed a red red line. Now. I'm not going to be quiet now. I need to speak up. Now. This is way too far. You don't mess with my kids. And that's what I'm seeing happening.

00:14:33--> 00:14:50

And I think Christians and others they're seeing Muslims who are not afraid. Some are but more are coming out. We have more of a stance against is like, recently you had also the Patrick David he had Habib he was interviewed Habib, and then he asked Habib, how many genders are there

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

It was like I see only woman and men, but is no.

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

No between

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

Yes.

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

And then hobby obviously gave me a direct answer. And he kind of broke it down and given a story about when he was going to the bathroom and now he was trying to figure out which one to go into. And he had a

00:15:26--> 00:15:41

couple of weeks ago, and I was in California, I was like, on coffee shop is like, I really want to go bedroom is like, can I go back from okay, they told me cold and I'm kind of like to bedroom all gender all gender is like, what is this? Where I have to go?

00:15:43--> 00:15:49

First time I see like, I stopped like, I spent like five seconds there. Like

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

where's woman was men?

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

I locked the door.

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

Anybody inside?

00:15:59--> 00:15:59

Okay.

00:16:00--> 00:16:35

Like, I don't know. So they respect that. It's kind of something that. But what do you suggest? Because over time people get desensitized, right? Yep, you keep up if people don't speak up with that statement that of good people do nothing that says this is one evil conspiracy. Exactly, exactly. And that's very similar to a statement of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he said that anyone who sees some evil or see something wrong happening, you know, they should fix it with their hands, if they're able to, you know, in the right way legally, and all that stuff. But if you can't, you're not able to do that, then you fix it with your tongue, meaning you got to speak out

00:16:35--> 00:17:11

against you got to say something, because if no one says anything, or no one does anything, or if it doesn't even bother you in your heart, then it's like, how is society going to change? Who's Who's gonna who's gonna, you know, correct these things. So yeah, we have to do it, because there's funding, because obviously, even people at these board meetings when people have gotten up, and they start to read from some of these books, the explicit details of you know, the penetration, and then showing even showing in the news reports when they go to show this, the private genitalia of the male, the female, and then them getting into action and whatnot, the news media, they'll blur this

00:17:11--> 00:17:50

out. Or they'll tell the person who's at the board meeting, speaking out of the details, and in some of these books, and then they'll tell them to stop. So you'll tell them to stop at the board meeting. And then you also blurt it out on TV, but then you expect for the little minds of children to go ahead and be exposed to this xivo. Exactly. What are the arguments? What are the other side of arguments to excuse some of this? What are they saying basically? Yeah, I mean, they're, you know, their explanation is, oh, well, this is the reality of what's happening, right. So this is this is simply what people do. And since it exists, then we should just go ahead and expose the children to

00:17:50--> 00:18:19

it. It's a false argument, because it's like saying, You know what, okay, pornography exists in the world. But does that mean, you're going to be like, Oh, because it exists in the world? Should we show it to children? Or should we even show it to the average adult? Did you just put it on put on public television? That's not the way that works? Because, you know, there's there's, there's so many crimes, there's so many bad things that happen in the world? Do you want to go and like explicitly show this to every single person and like, flush it in front of them? It's going to go into their mind, it's going to go into their heart, and then it becomes something that's completely

00:18:19--> 00:18:53

normalized for them. So that's, that's a very weak argument, right? I think there's just double standards, the double standards is that you know what, there are so many other things which you will censor out, you're not going to allow children to use foul language in your classroom. Right? And at the same time, people use a lot of bad language, they use a lot of bad words. So do you put in the in the kindergarten book? Do you put in like the little book about, you know, the bears coming in, like visiting the household, or they cussing each other out with the F word and all that stuff? You don't see that? See? Well, that's part of reality, too. Why do you censor that you censored because,

00:18:53--> 00:19:23

you know, that's not appropriate for children and let alone being appropriate for adults? But yeah, it exists in the world, that we're like, No, we don't, we don't want our kids to learn that behavior, because then they're gonna think it's normal. If Little Bear cusses out the other, you know, baby bear or Father Bear, Mama Bear, or whatever it is, then the kids are gonna start imitating that. So they're like, We don't want that to happen. But when you start showing the same thing, you see, like, you know, a male bear coming and getting married to another male bear, you don't think that's going to also normalize it for them? And they're like, Well, this is I can go

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

ahead and do this. You know. So that's exactly what the agenda is. But it's a very double standard, so hypocritical agenda, and that's where we need to, you know, we'd call that part out. How did you even get so far that you got to a point where we talked about this before, but for people who sometimes they don't think but it's just so obvious, like, you need to be certain age to go to the military to get a tattoo. You need your parents permission even to get a passport you need to have to parents there. And the list goes on for our rated movie, explicit rating an adult and driver's license, alcohol, tobacco, you need to be a certain age, but now they're pushing this

00:20:00--> 00:20:34

They'll find the kids with the puberty blockers, the pushing this thing on with children now at a young age getting indoctrinated, and they want to hit them just at the right ripe age. So then they can go ahead and, you know, help them to make the transition that transitioning now, and they're making it illegal. Is it that somebody what did they call it this? Conversion therapy? Yeah, if you want to talk someone out of it, but you can, yeah, it's not the best. It's not the right term. But that's the pejorative term. When they want to attack it, they call it conversion therapy, you know, even reparative therapy, this, you're not allowed to use that word. But basically, it's somebody who

00:20:34--> 00:21:09

says, you know, these are my thoughts that I have, and I don't want to have these thoughts. Right? And so you will, you're not allowed to do that. So if you have the thoughts that are in line with having gender dysphoria, then your thoughts are encouraged. If you have thoughts and say, Well, I don't want to I don't want to change into a different gender, but I'm having these thoughts, can you help me remain where I am? And the answer is like, No, that'll be like conversion therapy, like in the 1950s that used to shock people or whatever, no one does that anymore. Right? But no, it's banned, and it's illegal. And, you know, you're looked down upon, and we can't help you in that we

00:21:09--> 00:21:44

can help you transition, we can't help you d transition after your transition, and we can't help you remain there. If these are kind of the feelings that you have, or even give you any advice, whatever you decide whatever you want. Even if you're a little kid, whatever you feel like, you go with your feelings in Islam, we call that, you know, your desires, your your Hawa. Right. So it's like, do whatever you feel like, and I think that's part one root cause of the problem, you know, second root cause of the problem, which you know, you might have been alluding to, is there's a lot of money, there's a lot of money, in operations, there's a lot of money in hormones, there's a lot of money

00:21:44--> 00:22:27

in, you know, you're gonna be on hormone therapy for the rest of your life, you know, so follow the money follow, if you follow the money, the boards now in the schools, who are allowing the books and everything, do they get a certain amount of funding at the same time. So now, there's also money involved, I'm not sure, but nothing would surprise me. Because if you look at the economic meltdown that happened 2008 2009 It came out late, like much later that, you know, these Harvard professors of economics, were being paid by the corporations to say that, you know, this type of practice, you know, is allowed of, you know, derivatives and, you know, modifying what these, you know, mortgages

00:22:27--> 00:23:06

are worth or not worth, whatever. So, there's a lot of a lot of this stuff happens in history, and then we find out about it later. So it wouldn't surprise me if something like this came out. I think there's also a lot of pressure on politicians on school teachers from the power structure, which is which is dominated by the rainbow movement now that if you don't accept this, then you're you're a homophobe, you're transphobic you're this you're discriminating. You're just like your equivalent to being a racist basically, today, and, and we're going to expose you and we're going to cancel you and we're gonna destroy your life, I'm gonna destroy your family. And there's a lot of threats

00:23:06--> 00:23:46

taking place. So I think a lot of people are just very afraid to do anything to say anything, even if they have in their heart, they're like, Yeah, this is probably not good for kids. But I can't risk my whole career or I can't risk my whole you know, everything that I'm doing. So people are really afraid. And I think that fear from from people who have just like a just general understanding of, of how humans should be that fear is contributing to this problem. Have you heard any doctors now that because if you look at a person's DNA, you had you guys had at your Masjid not too long ago, you were actually speaking about this. You had a medical doctor, they're also talking

00:23:46--> 00:23:51

from the scientific perspective. You were you guys are really covering all the different

00:23:52--> 00:24:23

avenues on this. Have you had doctors who had to now because again, your religion preaches opposite to it, right? So now in this situation, have you had because you're somebody who's also the the head of the religious, you're the Imam of the Islamic Center of Irvine. So have any medical doctors come to you see, I'm in a tight position. I could lose my my, my jacket or again all the time, or you do this is not? This is not new? This is

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

eight years. Okay, maybe not? Maybe 10 More than 10 years. Yeah, they many doctors have come especially endocrinologist who are you know, the issue hormones. They prescribe hormones. I have pharmacists that come to me and say, Hey, we are you know, we're people come and pick up their prescription of the hormones. Am I allowed to sell to them? What if I didn't write the prescription? Should I give it to them? I don't know what they're using it for if I know what they're using it for. It's happening all the time. And what happened was like several years ago, at least in California, there was a new no opt out policy. So in the beginning like over

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

A decade ago, doctors could opt out. And they could say, Listen, this is against my religious beliefs, I cannot perform this surgery for, you know, gender change, you know, outward change, or whatever it is, I cannot do this sex sex reassignment surgery. But then the insurance companies came and said, Hey, you're not allowed to opt out anymore. And this is where the problem lies, you're not allowed to opt out on many things. So doctors are not allowed to opt out on something, even if they say this goes against my religious values. counselors, therapists are not allowed to opt out and say, Listen, I cannot, you know, if like, if a gay married couple comes to you and says, Listen, you

00:25:41--> 00:26:10

know, I'm a family therapist, this is my training. But like, you know, I can't, this is not my field to like, really help a gay couple, because this is, you know, idea of, you know, game, a gay couple is not within my my religious values, that you're going to be penalized if you try to opt out, and you can't get a religious exemption to this. So it's very strange, because there's, there's a level of hypocrisy is vary state by state, but there's a level of hypocrisy in society. So like, for example, Catholics

00:26:12--> 00:26:48

are against abortion, this is pretty clear. So there's, there's laws, where Catholic doctors can opt out of performing abortions by saying, Hey, this is against our religion. So, you know, whatever you whatever the state's gonna do, and Roe v Wade, and whatever happened and everything, this is something that goes against our religion, we're going to do all the other aspects of our medical job very well, we're good at what we do. But this is not something that we're going to do. And they have opt out clauses in different states and all that stuff. But when it comes to something like this, you're not allowed to opt out, it doesn't matter what your religion says, You're not allowed, you're

00:26:48--> 00:27:31

not allowed to opt out. So instead, as a new this year, this is this is fairly new within the last decade, and more and more laws are being passed about no opting out for anything related to the alphabet, Rainbow movement, whatever it whatever we want to describe it as. So everything from the medical profession, from the psychology profession, from your children, receiving this education, you know, being taught this in schools, there's every state, there's battles, for, there will be no opt out policy. So what happens to a Muslim doctor or a Christian doctor who now has a patient in front of them, and that patient wants to remove their genitalia, it's a male, and he wants to remove

00:27:31--> 00:28:08

the genitalia for this purpose. For the most part, opt outs are, they can write, they can request something, and for the most part, it's going to be denied. So what ends up happening is they're gonna have to figure out some other excuse of not being able to do it. And then they come in, they decide, you know, what, I need to switch into a different field, I can't remain in this particular I need to switch into, you know, internal medicine is freedom, religion. Absolutely, it's so so then how have certain medical doctors fought against this and see, this is the thing is we don't have doctors are naturally very busy people, right? So they would like to fight. But here's the second

00:28:08--> 00:28:43

problem. The second problem is that people who are generally going to fight for things like this are going to be politically connected, or activist type people. And the problem is, most activists tend to be very left leaning, even in the Muslim community. So they're not gonna really, they're not going to take this on very seriously, this is not one of their things that they're going to be like, you know, what, I'm going to sacrifice my extra time, and I'm going to put a lot of effort into it. Let me get all the Muslim doctors and Catholic doctors and Latter Day Saints, Mormon doctors and Jewish doctors and, and let's, let's, let's do something about this, and let's rally, you know,

00:28:44--> 00:29:19

Washington DC, or the court or whatever, we don't find that, because sadly, many Muslim activists and many activists in general are left leaning. And so they're not supporting these causes, because they're kind of okay with these cars, or they support these causes. And that's the problem. So you got to basically doctor by himself, doesn't have any other support doesn't know, you know, how to deal with these things doesn't deal with activism. What is he supposed to do? Is challenge you have an example here, we'll show this clip of planning commission meeting and this hit the news. We had a Muslim, I guess he was exposed to some sensitivity training, and they mixed it in with race and

00:29:19--> 00:29:48

whatnot. And this is what he had to say. And he put his career on the line pretty much. We will get to all of those stories in just a moment. But first, our top story tonight, that's a mammoth City Leader resigns following his comments against the LGBTQ community. And hopefully, I don't want I'm not trying to insult anybody or trying to pro you know, praise anybody. But it's feedback based on the conversation that we had with regard to the training that we had with regard to diversity. So as my background as a Muslim person,

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

it is my duty, in my belief, to speak or to promote goodness. And when I see certain things that are not

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

appropriate and not right at least speak about it. So this verse in the Quran says all mankind, all people, it is not all Muslims or all Christians, or or Jews or all men or all women, all mankind, all mankind, verily We have created you from a male and a female. And we have made you into nations and tribe. So that you get to know each other not so that you despise each other and hate each other and fight. So you get to know each other. So part of our creation is that we are here to get to know each other to learn from each other. So which is really a good thing. And specifically, people were created certain ways, but then to club, certain people who choose a certain lifestyle, and say they

00:30:49--> 00:31:19

are a part among the minority, I don't believe that is the right thing. And I'm going to be very specific, the LGBT community, and specifically creating a pride month for them. These are some of the most wealthy, the most connected people, I had a person who reported to me at Microsoft, he left Microsoft for a job to be an activist in that community that pays double what he was making at Microsoft. So these are not a minority people who are

00:31:21--> 00:32:09

disenfranchised, and then we need to clap them as part of the minority people. So in my opinion, these are people that are promoting diseases, and infestation into the mind of our kids in schools. So we as a community, we should stand up for this. And that's my belief. And that's where I come from, that I don't believe this is the right way of life, God created as a male and a female, and to go and go against the creation of God, and to spread diseases in the community is something that we should speak up against, or at least I would like to speak up against, because that goes against my belief. So that's one what I would like to share. I believe in diversity, this is my life, I believe

00:32:09--> 00:32:43

I love the diverse community in Sammamish. But if someone wants to choose a lifestyle, that's to themselves, they decide on themselves, they do it privately that's theirs, but to go and make it a thing, to promote this in every movie, and every TV show everywhere, teaching our kids and poisoning our kids with this, I don't believe this is the right thing to do. So I appreciate the time that I was given. And I wanted to share my opinion on this. So this is what seem feed. And we'd like to if anybody knows the

00:32:44--> 00:32:50

this brother, we'd like to invite him on the program put us in touch with him. What do you think of

00:32:51--> 00:33:31

this individual Muslim, he got up and he's quoted some Koran at a board meeting, given his time, and I guess he's kind of practicing again, his freedom of speech. And he was forced to resign. Yeah, yeah, it said, I mean, he's definitely very brave, you know, and it's good that, you know, people need to be brave, you know, you can say that, you know, he made one or two errors in the way he used the word disease, or whatever it is. But if you just look at it, generally, number one, he spoke very calmly, spoke very rationally. And he was in he said, like, this is my view. And this is my opinion, and I love diversity and everything. So it was actually a very it was, it was brave of him

00:33:31--> 00:34:01

to say it, for the most part, what he said was, would have resonated with a lot of people. He's concerned about the children and about the kids. And it's sad to see that, you know, when somebody tries their best to be respectful, to not yell not shout didn't get very emotional or anything, but he's obviously you could sense the care and concern that he has, and she's, he's talking about it, and then he's going to be penalized even for speaking, even for just simply bringing up his opinion.

00:34:02--> 00:34:42

That's very concerning. So I think I think the guy you know, again, outside of one or two words that he used, which could have been a little bit, you know, maybe better rehearsed, is he's a hero. I mean, he's somebody where other people should have the courage and the bravery to speak up and say what their actual view is, but not always what's happening. People are being bullied into silence. And everyone's afraid to say anything. And that's if everyone is afraid to say something, then we're just going to continue to have more and more of this cycle perpetuate and situations is going to get worse and worse. I was listening to a community leader he was touching upon kind of the same things

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

he was saying, but he was quoting the everybody knows potato chips are not good for them. Everybody knows that french fries aren't good for them. They know that cheesecakes not good for them, but nobody will dare speak out against the deviant sexual practices that occur in this country and are

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

not only not talked about are promoted by mainstream entertainment and society promoted deviant sexual practices that are harmful to the human being pathogenic sexual practices that cause serious diseases.

00:35:18--> 00:35:59

This isn't like a fatty food that takes time many years before it accumulates and causes a heart attack. This is a one time possible death sentence. And yet people won't speak honestly about it, the World Health Organization tells us that rectal intercourse is the most risky form of sexual behavior. That's what the World Health Organization has to say. And yet people will not say this is not a healthy choice. I don't want my child to be practicing this male or female, this has nothing to do with sexual preference. This has to do with a sexual practice that is done amongst heterosexual

00:36:01--> 00:36:06

people and amongst homosexual people. Yet, it's harmful and nobody wants to speak about it.

00:36:07--> 00:36:50

We need our physicians to speak up. But the core point is coming back down to the education, right? It's like, is this what we should be teaching children? This is somebody who's basically saying, Listen, guys, whoever has a family, whoever cares about family values, whoever cares about your children, this is not something that's healthy for children, it's not something that's good for children, whatever they decide later on, when they when they grow up, you know, they can, they can choose whatever they want, but to brainwash them at this young age to, to, to swallow something, which is not generally historically recognized as being natural, universal, or whatever it is, but

00:36:50--> 00:37:21

then pushing it on them to say, No, this is what we're going to make sure that they do. And you can't opt out, and you have no other option, and you must accept every single thing. That's very problematic. I mean, adults want to want to hear this stuff. I mean, people don't know like, this is very explicit. You've read some of you've seen the books, right? I've seen too many of the books, unfortunately, it's really like cringe. I mean, this is like very explicit word adults. I mean, again, going back to the board room, obviously, when the board room, they don't want to hear this, it affects me, I've seen the second grade books that I'm seeing. I mean, it's talking about, you

00:37:21--> 00:37:53

know, just it's at the level of pornography. And like, I don't want to read that stuff for forget my kids. I don't want to see that stuff. Why should I have to see that? Why don't why don't you put a if we had a rating system, right for the way we have for movies, they should put this book is rated our why don't they have pornography in the regular movie theater sign? Exactly? What what why not? Why not integrated? G? Why don't integrated peih? Gee, why don't why don't they show exactly the same scene in a Disney movie? And I hope they don't, because it wouldn't surprise me if Disney gets their

00:37:55--> 00:38:30

ideas, you know, within 10 years, 20 years might be there. But but it's not there. And that's the problem is with double standards, you got one standard over here. And you're like, Well, we have a rating system. And we have PG 13 or, you know, we have we have our and we have all the other ratings that are out there. And they mean something, and some people actually check them. And then when it comes to the books, because there's political pressure coming in from some other movement, that's going to basically blackmail you and say no, but this is going to end up in your book. Where's the parental guidance? A Parental Guidance doesn't mean that because your teacher is there, it's all of

00:38:30--> 00:39:08

a sudden, okay. I mean, I don't know anyone says, Oh, it's okay to watch rated R movies in kindergarten, because technically, your kindergarten teacher is there. And she's she's an adult or he's an adult that happens to be there. That doesn't make it okay. It's funny, because the word says PG, parental guidance. It didn't say random adult guidance. Right. So that's pretty interesting. I just thought about right now. So I mean, that's where people need to wake up and say, we have double standards. Let's have one consistent standard, right? And not just give a not make exceptions, because there's going to be one group that's going to threaten you and say, you need to do this.

00:39:08--> 00:39:45

Otherwise, we're going to penalize you. And that's what's happening today. And we need to be on the side of justice. Right? Be transparent, be fair, be open and say what your actual values are, so we can understand so the society can understand. Don't make exceptions based on fear and threats. I think I've heard this from you the last time the count was at. It was at like 100 forgotten how many genders? Oh, yeah, like 107. Last I checked 107 107 107. That was the last time you checked that last time I checked, like about a year and a half ago, maybe how did they get up to 107? So you know, what's happening is that

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

they're trying to just invent as many words as possible, because the larger the number, the more it's going to confuse people and think like, Wow, there's so many manifestations of whatever the word gender doesn't really mean anything anymore. That

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

If the dictionaries have been redefined, right, they don't even every every major dictionary in English has been has changed the word gender, if you look 20 years ago, and you look at what it means, now, it doesn't mean anything anymore. So it's basically completely relative. So the more genders you add, it just confuses people. And they're like, Wow, there's such a spectrum of diversity of gender expression and what it means. And you come up with different words, some of the words are not from our language, they're borrowed from like international, you know, different countries of manifestation of what this could be. So that's just designed to confuse people so that

00:40:34--> 00:41:13

the way it got up there was the same way that the alphabet movement is because why we call it the alphabet movement, because it just keeps on tacking more letters on and on there. So the more letters you get added, you're saying, Well, this is part of the group. And this is part of the group. And this is part of the it's all a part of the cue group. Q means queer and queer used to mean weird, right are strange. And what they've done is that becomes the umbrella term, which represents anyone that's not within the normal spectrum of what human beings have always understood the world to be when it comes to attraction. And when it comes to gender, right, so anything on that

00:41:13--> 00:41:50

spectrum is basically considered to be queer. So the more letters you add, the more it confuses people. And the more power it seems like to have, the more genders you add, the more it seems like gender must be relative. It's not just too because they just keep on adding more and more and more. Now you're like, how could the number gets so high? Maybe at least someone who's at least sticking to their guns and saying, No, that doesn't make sense. There's only two genders, two sexes, they're like, Okay, maybe if they're at 100, maybe I could jump to like three. And if you can just jump to three or four, they got you. That's all they really wanted to do in the first place. All they wanted

00:41:50--> 00:42:28

to do was just get you beyond to, to say that No, gender is not binary gender is not just a male and female. No, no, there's, there's, there's, there's more than that. And they can add 100. It's they can add 100. And they just need you to add one from that 100. They don't care about the other 99. And that's that's the way it works. That's the game. That's the game. That's the game. Wasn't this prophesized in the Quran? Isn't this? Yeah, it's about the shakedown will change the cruise ship done is going to change the creation. Exactly, exactly. It's going to cause people to make changes in the creation of people. So just the creation is talking about physical creation. Now, it's not

00:42:28--> 00:43:06

only changing the creation, you're changing the definitions of creation, like the very definition. So gender doesn't really have any meaning anymore. It's almost a useless term. So I mean, science is just being manipulated, bought, I mean, at the end of the day, what is it? Because all of this stuff that is in the biology, it's as it's like someone now, you know, people get bent out of shape when you got people and I there's probably more evidence not saying this is I mean, you know, the people who argued Flat Earth, right, they could probably make they make, they'll have more evidence that they can make some argument. Yeah, exactly, exactly. You can manipulate things, you can make an

00:43:06--> 00:43:49

argument. And that's the problem. Science is viewed by the average person as being something objective, neutral, not being influenced by anything else. But but but today, it is, this is like the most solid, like this is something that's being challenged that like, again, in your DNA, it's it's you just have to look down when you go to the bathroom, it's just so black and white. And it's being questioned, and it's being questioned. It's, it's, it's, I think people not sticking to the principles, people following their desires, not having a good grounding in some type of divine revelation, or at least not having a grounding in the idea that there is an absolute morality,

00:43:49--> 00:44:11

people have basically lost, lost the idea that, hey, there's such thing is real good and bad. Everything is situational ethics in the minds of people. And that's part of the problem is like, what is it? What does it mean to be a good person? What does it mean to be an evil person? Would you say, according to what you're seeing, or most people that are going towards this are people who just deny God altogether?

00:44:12--> 00:44:51

I would say most of the people are either very skeptical about God, and about any type of revealed religion in general. And then the second strand are those people who, internally they're skeptical, but they don't want to openly say it. So they're trying to reframe and change their religion around to accommodate and say, no, no, no, that's, that's not really what the verses say, or that's not really what the scripture was saying. And they're gonna try to basically twist around whichever scripture it is, whether it's the Quran, or it's the Bible, or it's the Torah, or you know, they're gonna try and twist it around, so that it suits what they want it to believe. And that's, that's

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

what's the point of Scripture, then if scripture is just going to be something that fits whatever you want it to fit, and you just gonna reinterpret anything, whatever the way

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

You want, it's pretty much useless if you're going to pick and choose. So let's bring us up to speed with this Alberta recordings. Yeah. So in Alberta in Canada, there was there was a school that took place, there was a school where there was like a Pride Week happening. And many of the Muslims, they're like, We don't want our kids to see that pride stuff. So we're just going to keep them out of school that week, they went back to school the next day, and one of the teachers took them to the side, these are mostly mostly Muslim students. Or maybe it's all Muslim students, and started just yelling at them. And you know, thank God, you know, Hamdulillah, we say that one of the students

00:45:39--> 00:46:15

took out their phone and just started recording. So we have exactly the script of what this teacher was saying. And she's yelling and screaming at them and saying, You know what, you are so disrespectful, not coming to school. And she says, If you believe, basically she's saying, If you believe something is wrong with like, LGBT, Rainbow movement, homosexuality, whatever it is, you can't live here, you shouldn't be a Canadian citizen, you don't belong to this country, you should go somewhere else, because we believe in freedom. So ironic that she said that, right? We believe in freedom. And if you don't like that, then you can't be here, because this is part of the law. It was

00:46:15--> 00:46:54

so strange. And then and then she starts guilt tripping the Muslim kids and said, We celebrated your Aedes and we celebrated your Ramadan. And you're not showing the same amount of respect to you know, the LGBT people in the in the school. And there's a problem this is such, you know, Muslims should not be tricked, nobody should be tricked into this line of thinking. There's two problems with this argument. Problem. Number one is no Muslim has ever told anyone else that you should celebrate eat. No one goes to school and say, Hey, man, Hey, John. Hey, Kathy, if you're not wearing an Eid Mubarak t shirt, and you're disrespecting me as a Muslim, but the other way around, if you don't wear that

00:46:54--> 00:47:03

rainbow tag on during pride month, you're not you're not an ally. And if you're not an ally, that means you're a homophobe, and you're a bigot. And you're this and you're that so that's number one. Number two,

00:47:05--> 00:47:39

what look at the deal. Basically, you get to pick and choose any part of our religion that you want to say we're all going to celebrate that because it fits into our framework. But in exchange, what do you have to do? You have to change your scripture, any verse that we don't like, like the verse of the you know, people of Prophet Luke, Prophet, lots, all the verses, you know, there's 105 verses mentioned in the Quran about lot. We want you to change the interpretation of the meaning of your book. So we'll celebrate what we'll put up a little, you know, Crescent for Ramadan to show that, you know, we're helping you celebrate, we're happy, you're celebrating Ramadan, but you got in

00:47:39--> 00:47:56

exchange, you got to you got to change your scripture, you got changed the Quran around, what a horrible deal. That's a pretty sucky deal. No one should go with that deal. So that's what's happening. And that's horrible. Because you know what, like, imagine a kid, imagine a 10 year old has to go to school, and their teachers going to basically say, like,

00:47:57--> 00:48:37

you shouldn't even live in this country. I mean, that's, that's, that's horrendous. You know, that's just that's straight up. That's islamophobe. That's Islamophobia. That's Islamophobia coming from the political left. We experienced it from the political right. And now we're experiencing from the political left. Sadly, that's a good point. Nobody's telling anybody to celebrate Eid proof, right? I mean, to have to implement a slug fest festival Ramadan, if you want to show your respect to us. We're not asking you to fast. But then you go to and you see what they're what people are walking around naked grown men who are walking around naked at these pride parades. And the crazy thing is

00:48:37--> 00:48:39

parents who bring their children to this.

00:48:40--> 00:48:43

That's the scary thing. It's crazy. Yeah.

00:48:44--> 00:48:58

Have you been bullied at all? Have you have you been attacked? You're there right in the heart of everything. Have you had people who have approached you have come to your masjid and we've had in our budget, not so much. I was at a protest once.

00:48:59--> 00:49:45

It was against the American Academy of Pediatrics, because, you know, they're over medicalizing children at this young age. So yeah, we we got harassed by some protesters. It was pretty nasty. You know, someone came and started, you know, shouting us down, turned around, stuck their rear and out in front of me and in front of like, one of the other speakers there. mooned you. Yeah, basically mooned us. Yeah, right there. And it's just like, and for them that's like, that's their way of, that's their way of protesting. You know, so yeah, it was really sad to see that. So yeah, I've been I've been the target of that a little bit not not to the extent I've had a YouTube video taken down

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

some something that I said as well. Other than that, it's not been so bad because I kind of have been staying mostly within the space of the Muslim community and teaming up with with you know, religious folks

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

Christian community, the Jewish community on issues like this particularly. But I know if

00:50:08--> 00:50:47

I were invited to certain places, dealing with this topic, there definitely would be a lot more pushback. Yeah, but I'm kind of privileged to be in a masjid environment. So I thank God for that, you know, so there's a lot of rabbis and other Christian priests and people in Christian community who are working together. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah, yes, yes, for sure. For sure. And it's so nice to see that because we didn't really have. I mean, we had stuff to work on. But we have not been working on too many other issues. But now this issue is affecting everybody, and it's affecting their children. So now they're like, you know, what, whatever else is happening in other parts of

00:50:47--> 00:51:32

the world, whatever other our differences are, this is something that's affecting us right here in our own community. Let's, let's team up on this, let's do something about it. And I think we should do something about it. You know, what do you think people would say, if you had now, many women who are activated, who would be advocating for children to be taught, because now there's not a lot of high value men, they're not being able to get married. And now they wanted people to get educated on polygyny, for example, allow this in the schools? No way. No, no way. Absolutely no way. No, I think they would decriminalize, or at least they would normalize incest, before they would normalize

00:51:32--> 00:52:13

polygyny. That's my view. Yeah. Yes. This is my view. And unfortunately, I see it leaning in that direction. You see what? Incest being more normalized? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. They have that. What is it called? Minor attracted people? Yeah. Somebody one of these terms that came out? Yeah. I mean, this is what happens when you when you mess with sexuality, and you try to, it's just whatever feels good. And whatever follows your desires, you can go and turn this identity politics and just saying, This is how I feel. And my feelings turn into an identity for me, and we must respect everyone's identity, but identity based on skin and based on ethnicity, kind of like what the brother was

00:52:13--> 00:52:37

saying, that's different from identity based on your desires, or your inclinations, right? So if I'm an angry person, I don't identify as I'm an angry, you know, South Asian, Muslim men. That's not part of your, you know, that's not part of your identity. Right. That's just the feelings that you have. So that's not the way we look at these things. So I have I do see,

00:52:39--> 00:53:22

this is probably gonna get a little bit worse before it starts getting better. So yeah, I think so. Yeah. We never had that. So people just because someone feels a certain way. Now, today, the person feels more feminine. Now the person ends up wanting to chop off a perfectly healthy body part. And we've seen Have you seen you've seen a lot of people who have gone down this route? And they're in a total state of now regret? Yeah, it's, it's a lifelong. It's a life affecting decision. You know, it's like, when you get a bunch of tattoos, and then you regret and you're like, Oh, why did I get my, you know, girlfriend or whoever's tattoo on my or some verse or something, and then you tried to

00:53:22--> 00:53:39

remove it, you can laser it off, but there's still going to be some marks when you when you start with the hormones. And when you start with the surgery, and you start cutting off parts, and you start taking one part cut off and turn, you know, when you take not to get so explicitly take a penis and turn it into a vagina, or vice versa, or whatever it is.

00:53:41--> 00:54:21

If you decide to go back, because you have to change your mind, and there's 1000s of people who have a change of mind and say we want to D transition, you're never going to be the same again, I've encountered dozens of people spoken to them, you've spoken I've spoken to them. I've spoken to them I know about their life story, and the stuff that they tell me that they wish they could have children, they wish they could go back to their original voice that they used to have, they wish that you know, the effect that it had on their bones would not be there. Um, it it drains it really, you know, you're playing with your body. And you can't go back to where you originally should have

00:54:21--> 00:54:59

normally been. And it's very dangerous. It's very, very dangerous. And the research is pretty clear that it's it's almost like in California when when people were saying that, you know, cannabis is legalized, marijuana is legalized for medical purposes. You could literally walk into a doctor's office, talk to him for like 30 seconds and they'll issue you a prescription and say, you're good to go. So they just go and buy some marijuana legally and just smoking and get high. The same thing is happening. When it comes to therapists. You go and you say you go to a therapist, you have like one session say, you know, I kind of feel like I'm struggling with my gender identity, whatever it is

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

they

00:55:00--> 00:55:32

gonna give you a prescription and be like, you're, you're a good candidate for testosterone, or you're a good candidate for any type of hormones, you start the hormone therapy, or you're a good candidate for puberty blockers, you start that, and then from there, you eventually start to you start to feel different. And you're like, oh, wow, I mean, the experiences that I've had from people that I've spoken to, like one woman, she's like, this is what it feels like to be a guy, I'm pumping hormones into herself. She like, I feel like this renewed sense of confidence. My muscles are growing, I'm this, I'm that this is pretty cool. This is pretty interesting. comes with some, you

00:55:32--> 00:56:09

know, downsides. But this is, this is cool. I'll try it out for a while. And then you just keep going and you keep growing you going. And then you do the surgery, and you do this, you knew that you were trying to go back. You change your mind. You're like, What in the world was I thinking? You can't go back? It's very, very hard to go back to where you were before. I mean, it's not a permanent change. Right. But you're not going to be the same person. You know, and that's scary, man. That's very scary. I was never the same again. never see him again. Yeah. Never seen. Yeah. So then, if we go to another aspect of this seems like this is more of an infringing on, on women's

00:56:09--> 00:56:53

rights. Also, women want to be in their own space, and the bathroom. And even young boards, sports, sports, everyone had their own sports, and now men are coming their truth, and they're destroying all of their records. I mean, in swimming in track in everything, you just have a guy comes and identifies as female, whether or not they have genuine, you know, diagnosed gender dysphoria or not, they can completely shatter the world record of somebody who, you know, all these women have been, you know, putting in their whole life into the sport to be able to do something, and then some, you know, trans athlete comes and just shattered just destroys it completely, whether it's high school,

00:56:53--> 00:57:30

or whether it's a world record or something like that. That's very, very concerning. And it's very unfair. And a lot of women are very upset about that. And that's where they're, like, at least in sports, like draw some line, and steal most politicians, and most, you know, people who are in positions of power, they won't even draw a line in sports. And that's very sad. I mean, just imagine in martial arts and things like that. I mean, you're gonna get some, some massive injuries, you I mean, the records being broken injuries, so many other things that are happening, kickboxing, things like that. This is this is the this is where people like when we've gotten this far, right, this is

00:57:30--> 00:57:49

where people need to start waking up and saying, Listen, this is too much like Glenn Greenwald, you know, who himself is gay. He's basically saying it's gone too far. The rest of the American community and Canadians and everyone else around the world needs to realize it's gone too far. It's time to make a change now.

00:57:50--> 00:58:28

And once that change, what, what can people do? People, people need to start speaking up, they need to say, Listen, this is not healthy for our community, this is not healthy for our, we're not going to keep on making exceptions to something that is nature, we're not here to, we're not going to sit here we don't like bullying anybody, okay? We just disagree with somebody on whatever they're doing morally, we're not going to bully them, we're not going to call them names, keep keep those laws in place, whatever small laws like that are there, that's fine. But to force everyone else, to shift their mentality to conform to over represent in media and say you must have a quarter this many

00:58:28--> 00:58:51

people, you know, from the movement need to be within the main characters of this film, or that film. curriculum needs to be there and kids need to be taught this. We need to we need to bring all that stuff back to equilibrium and what it used to be and stop pretending like there's this massive peak, keeping people in fear and saying that you know what,

00:58:52--> 00:59:26

if you don't do this, then people are going to die. They're going to commit suicide. They this is all this is false propaganda. like CNN just came up with an article that was a travel advisory for people in Canada who are LGBT, they should be careful of moving, traveling to America because they're going to they're in serious danger. It's such an exaggeration. It's it's political propaganda. We need to stop the exaggeration with people need to speak up and say, We're tired of this false propaganda, the way that people were people who were had a little people of conscious.

00:59:27--> 00:59:33

They were speaking out when there was propaganda war in Iraq, and they're like, Come on, man. You really got

00:59:35--> 01:00:00

proof of chemical, chemical weapons and weapons of mass destruction and all that. Whenever you see something false in the media, people should wake up and they should say, Hey, we're tired of that. We know that's false. Stop trying to, you know, trick us and brainwash us for whatever political objective you have. So when people need to wake up today, it means people need to wake up and say, Listen, these aren't the real facts. You know, this is this is an exaggeration. It's over represented

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

nation, there's a minority group that happens to be in very high positions of power that are pressuring you to do all of this. This needs to stop him even Fox News few months ago. I mean, during pride month, I couldn't believe it, Fox News of all places, has got like, a thing on the website about like pride flags, and we're celebrating pride. I'm like, what, where's the where's the values and the ethics that you guys were supposed to have represented? Or at least you, you know, people affiliated you with associated you with? So people need to come back to their core values, stop being afraid to speak up and say, we're going to speak the truth. Because if we don't, then

01:00:42--> 01:00:44

there'll be nobody left to speak the truth.

01:00:45--> 01:01:22

And you, you give an example of someone who came to listen to one of your talks one time, and I think later on they came they had, they were inclined towards a certain lifestyle. And you remember the story that Ellie, Kelly and Ellie, maybe I forgot the Yeah, someone who became Muslim and she had a partner's. Okay. You guys have Cal Poly Pomona? Yes. Was in a university. Yeah. So what happened with that? I mean, so this actually the person end up shifting their lifestyle, they were inclined towards their desires a certain way. Yeah. And then they listened to one of your talks and what happened with Yeah, so I mean, she came, they were the, you know, they were they were, they

01:01:22--> 01:01:25

were lesbian couple inside the university. And,

01:01:26--> 01:02:01

you know, they were one, at least one of them was genuinely interested in learning about Islam. So she came to an intro to Islam and said, I'm really interested in learning more, I don't really know much about this religion. So I explained what are the principles of Islam and everything like that. And then I found out like, a few months later, that, you know, she broke up with her girlfriend, and she went through a really tough time. And she's like, well, slump seems like a really nice religion. And it seems to make sense to me, and I'm going through something in my life. So she became Muslim. And then she became Muslim. And then she started wearing hijab, you know, she started putting on the

01:02:01--> 01:02:41

headscarf, and everything. And she gave up pork, and all of that stuff. And I remember, you know, speaking with, I think it was with her with somebody next to her, saying, you know, the most difficult thing for me in my life to give up, giving a porque was easy. And wearing the hijab was easy. And starting the five days, you know, five times prayer, all of that stuff was not the biggest challenge. For me, the biggest challenge was being able to give up my identity of being a lesbian and being gay. But she's saying, but I did it for Allah. And that was just, it was so powerful. For me, I didn't realize like, how challenging that would be. Most people are like, you know, pork, oh,

01:02:41--> 01:03:19

man, I missed those, you know, bacon burgers, or whatever it is, or, you know, wearing a hijab is really hard, people are going to be staring at you. But for her, say, this was a core part of my identity. That's kind of the way she grew up. And she's like, but I realized that even though it was once I realized that this is not what God wants, and internally, she probably knew that something is also not right about it, she goes, I'm going to adjust my lifestyle in a way that I know is better for me, even though it's hard. And I think that's, that's a huge lesson for everybody is that, you know, it can be really tough. Changing your life can be really tough, but when it's for the right

01:03:19--> 01:03:52

cause, and it's actually going to be good for you in this life, as well as in the next life. Then you do it. You do it and and God will make it easy for you. Can we say now that I mean, as Muslims, we love for humanity, what we love for ourselves, we want good for humanity. Exactly. We want to protect the children. We're doing this out of the love. And if somebody has a certain lifestyle, if they would consider this way of life, I mean, they've evaluate themselves and see where they're at right now. Are they? Are they truly a content?

01:03:53--> 01:04:30

In peace? Are they truly are there is that void filled is are they happy in a sense that they're going through life, you know, feeling that their purpose is being met, I mean, and then they compare it to what they can get here, like this person that you gave the story about, I mean, they've considered and it seems like people when they follow their desires, you just try one thing that doesn't bring you any kind of contentment. You go to the next thing, and then you just keep going, you keep climbing the ladder, you keep going going and just like many of these people, you talk about that then they make this decision, Shakedown takes you to the point of no return now. But and

01:04:30--> 01:04:59

while you're alive, there's always hope isn't there's always a point that you can go ahead and return to your maker to your Creator. And that's where that void gets filled. That's where you get that contentment. That's where you get that solace, joy and happiness. Exactly. That's exactly what it is until your life is over. You always have an opportunity to make that change. And when you make that change, you feel you feel the difference in your life. You know you when you live with purpose, and an objective purpose, not just the purpose you define for yourself to run around and just

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

Eat, drink and be married. But when you when you have when you understand why you've been created and why you're here, just that, in and of itself brings you a type of solace and contentment in your life that you're not going to find anywhere else.

01:05:14--> 01:05:50
