Okay, if there is someone praying over there, just maybe keep the camera angle on this camera for that time.
Okay, talk to me, you're gonna check the sink as well.
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Abdullah he also Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge marine and
so as always, I'm going to begin by saying Alhamdulillah by praising Allah by asking Allah to exalt dimension and grant peace to our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and two, his family and his companions. Why do you think I always begin? Why do we always begin with the same thing? Is it because I can't think of anything else to start with? What do you think for me?
Excellent. Whenever you start anything, there's a kind of assume that things that you start with, right? So you typically when it's a speech, you typically start with Alhamdulillah. What does hamdulillah mean? Can anyone guess? Saying Alhamdulillah? Yeah. And you begin with a Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. Bye by asking Allah to exalt the mention, what does that even mean? asking Allah to exalt the mention?
asking Allah to exalt the mention of the Prophet? What does that what do you think that might mean?
So who is who is Allah mentioning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to the angels, right?
allies mentioning the prophet to the angels, and mentioning him in a very good way mentioning
all of his praiseworthy qualities to the to the angels.
You mentioning about the Prophet, slice them to the angels and asking Allah to give him Salaam we always say have you ever noticed I mean, we always say teacher As salam or aleikum. Assalamu Aleikum, where is my translator more out? There you are.
I send them what is the word Salah mean?
It does no use it like that. But what does it in itself? When I say Salah makalah la Solomonic What is it? What is this means? Salah. What is this word Salah mean?
What do you think I'm the same person every time honest. Okay, we could say peace. Peace, not a not the best word, but it's not a bad word. It's just not the best word. Like when I say like, you know, I don't mean even some Arabic speakers. When I say ally selmak what do I What do I mean?
Allah keep you What?
safe? May Allah keep you safe. So when you say As salam or Aleikum, you're asking Allah to send his safety,
to send his safety upon you keep you safe, to keep you safe from anything that might happen to you. So when you say about the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam Salalah, where it was said that the solid is asking a lot to mentioned, the great qualities of the Prophet size element is praiseworthy characteristics to the angels and Sallam is about keeping him safe from everything that would take away from his position. Like all the bad things people say about him. That's not true.
anything that would make him anything that would take down from his position, you ask him a lot to keep him safe from all of that, and to give him peace. Okay, that's very good.
So now we've dealt with that issue. We're onto the topic today. What was the topic last week? Does anyone have any idea what we spoke about last week?
I don't know how you know is we will ask you in here. You might you might have watched about watched it, but I'm going to ask, I'm going to be safe. I'm going to be safe. And I'm going to go with Rama. Yes.
Who is your Lord? Man Rob book?
Who is your Lord?
My Lord is our love. Can we cover that? What do you think the question might be today?
We covered the question Who is your Lord today? We have a new question. And this question is what is your
Medina now inshallah everyone should have their hand up because all of you know what religion you are does anyone not know what religion they are? Because we are in a crisis mode right now if you don't know what religion you are, if you don't know why you're sitting in a Masjid now, and you're not sure that this is a Masjid.
Okay, maybe the people on YouTube are not sitting in the masjid so we can, but everyone knows their religion, right? So if you are asked, What is your religion? Your answer will be.
My religion is Islam. I'm a Muslim. Excellent. But that's not that that wasn't the end of the class. We're not all going to go home there. We're now going to go into the detail of asking ourself, what is Islam? And who is a Muslim? What is Islam? And who's a Muslim? So this word, Islam,
Islam, I want to hear your ideas first, and then I'm going to tell you a story about wrestling.
I'm really serious. I'm really I'm going to tell you a story about wrestling. And that's going to illustrate beautifully inshallah, my point about what Islam means. But that's another point. What do you think that Islam means? Oscar?
Wow, I like that people respect Allah, they worship Allah, they give Allah his rights. I like I really liked that. That was a good answer. I like that answer.
What is Islam in
I just want you to translate the word Islam. I want you to dictionary. I'm looking under Islam. I'm looking under the letter, the letter Hamza, and then see Islam and the English translation is Danny.
Zanna What was your
submission to Allah okay. Nobody thinks Islam means peace.
I think they said Salah means peace.
Most people often say that Islam means peace. That's really common isn't it? You hear even in our videos Islam means peace. We Muslims are peaceful. Apart from all those times when we're not we Muslims are peaceful the enemy. Actually the word Islam doesn't mean peace Not really. It's close to the word peace. But it's not really the word peace. So here let me illustrate with my discussion on wrestling.
Okay, two people are fighting each other.
And one of them says to the other s Lim
Aslam, you need Islam you know you need to have Islam right now.
They're fighting each other. And the other one says, okay, Islam it is.
Did they just agree to make peace with each other know? The word SLM means submit, give up.
It means give up. It doesn't mean peace. When you're fighting someone and you say to them as slim, it doesn't mean to them. Can we be peaceful now?
It means give up. Give up. Okay. We've already answered actually Zana did a great job of answering the next part of it already. But just generally speaking, how do we link that to the religion of Islam the word the meaning give up? Give up. Islam is giving up submitting,
giving giving up What are you giving up and who are you giving it up to?
giving up your bad actions I like that like stopping your bad actions. I like that That's good. That's really nice.
But in Islam, that's true in in language in Arabic, but I'm talking about here I'm talking about in in Islam, in the religion of Islam.
You're giving up anything that Allah doesn't like more than that. You're giving up your own choice.
When you say a slum to Leo or bill al amin, I have become a muslim for Allah, you're giving up what
you're giving up.
You've given up your choices.
And that can be understood by when Allah said one can only meaning one minute in either called Allahu Allah Sulu, who am Ron and he akuna la homonuclear to me Emory.
Not allowed for a Muslim man or a Muslim woman. When Allah and His Messenger decide something that they have any choice, you don't have a choice anymore. No Muslim, the word Muslim doesn't go with the word choice. I just choose what I like. I pray how I like I do what I like, I live what I like. What's Haram is what I feel is hot. What's halal is what I want to be hot. I'm just enjoying myself. No, doesn't go with the word Islam. Islam is when Allah has decided something for you. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has told you about what Allah has decided for you. It's not allowed for you to have any choice at all.
Why? Why not? Don't Why can't I just do what I want? Why can't I just why does these things have to be harmed? Why shouldn't I just do what I want?
Go and have abs?
I love that answer. That answer is amazing. Because you're not the boss of everything. Can I find the Arabic word for the boss of everything? Could I use the word rub? rub? That would be a good word for that one of the meanings of the word rub is the boss of everything. Really that seriously the word rob the word Lord. One of the meanings of the word Rob is the boss of everything. You're not the Rob, you're not the Creator. You're not the one who controls the heavens and earth. You don't know everything. You don't decree whatever is going to happen. So you shouldn't be choosing things for yourself. You don't know what might be good for you, and what might not be good for you. Yes,
excellent. Allah is the rub. Because Allah is the Creator. And Allah controls everything. So once you know that about Allah, you know that Allah knows best. And Allah tells us in the Quran, sometimes we don't know what's good for us, while La Jolla Allah Wa antem latur Allah Allah knows
but you don't know
what I sir and tackler who Cheyenne
way ajala la houfy Hi Ron, Kathy Allah, maybe you don't like something and Allah makes it really good for you.
What I said and to hibou Shay and
wahoo Sharon look like him. Maybe you love something and the thing you love isn't good for you. How many of you love sweets?
Okay, cool. I love sweets too. What would happen if you ate nothing but sweets, your whole life?
Your whole life? You just ate sweets, all day, every day, nothing else? What would happen?
You would become very unwell, you would get all kinds of problems in your teeth in your health. You become very very unwell. You might like something but it's not good for you. Who knows what's good for you? Allah knows what's good for you. Allah knows what's good for you What isn't good for you? Allah said in the Quran. Allah yeah I level manakala wahoo a lovely full copy which surah is the same?
Allah Allah Allah Come on. Both either of you to
Allah Allah moment. Holla wahoo a lovely for hubby.
No, try the next one.
Just to try Sora
Tabata Olivia didn't work well done. So tenemos Sora. Telemark, la Alamo man holla doesn't the one who created you know, the one who made you knows what's best for you. It's like a manual, right? It's like when someone makes something
and you have a manual for it. That means the person who made it knows, right best. So Allah Who created you knows best what's good for you. So when you become a Muslim, you agree to give up
desires the things you want your choices, and to go with what Allah said, is best.
To go with what Allah said is best. So Islam then to go back to our original topic.
means is this more lilla it means submitting to Allah giving up
and submitting to Allah. Think about the center.
You know your sujood? What What are you? What Institute? What parts of the body touch the floor? I know it's a fair question, but never mind. How many parts of the body touch the floor? First, let's have some numbers. I just want a number. How many parts of the body touch the floor?
How many number I want a number? No, I want a total number. I want you to add up all the parts.
For me to an S Judah eila. I was commanded to prostrate on how many parts? No,
no, no, no, no. Seven Alhamdulillah. Seven. What are the seven? They are the forehead, including the nose. Because the Prophet sighs him said or he pointed, he said, Al Jabba the forehead, were ashara illa. And fee and he pointed to his nose. So it's your forehead, including your nose, that's one and your two hands. That is three and 123. And your two knees, four and five. And your two sets of tools on your feet. And that is six and seven. When you make sujood when you are like that? What does that say about you? And Allah?
Genesis and the question like your your you've got your forehead on the ground? What is that? How What does that say about you and Allah?
What is your position? And what is our last position?
If that makes sense? Yes.
Because Allah is the highest, Allah is Allah, Allah and you are a slave of Allah, a servant of Allah. You put your your head on the ground in the lowest place, you can go, can you go any lower, you can't go any lower than that without digging a hole in the ground. You can't go any lower than that. You lower yourself.
That's the meaning of Islam. That's what Islam the religion of Islam means. You lower yourself down to Oh Allah, I'm right down here. I'm low. I'm your servant. I'm your slave. You're my Lord. Like the brother said, You're the boss. You're the one who controls everything in the heavens and the earth. You're the rob
the one who controls everything. assayed and mortar, the one who is in control of everything, and the one who is abate.
And I am trying my best to be
and so Islam is all about trying your best. Like they say well in Korea doula who be taught that you're trying your very best to obey Allah. Now I've got a question for you.
What does it mean to obey Allah? I use this word big word sometimes that I want people to explain so I make sure everybody understood what I meant to obey Allah.
Thinking I haven't heard from you today, Rob. Yeah.
What does it mean to obey Allah give me a different word I could use
to worship Him. Good. Okay. But I want the word obey. If I want you to make it maybe some people don't understand this word, obey Allah. What does it like? What does the word obey mean?
Okay, listen to what he said, do what He tells you, right? That's what obey means. Right? But is it just doing what he tells you or is they're also not doing what he tells you not to do?
So there are two things that you're told to do in Islam. There are things you are told to do. Can you give me example of something you're told to do?
Everyone should be able to give me an example. At their back. Yes, Habibi, something Allah told us to do anything at all. Pray brilliant. Tell me now an example of something that Allah told us not to do.
Behind audience brother Yeah.
Okay, not be bad. I wanted to put the one in the in front of you. by two things. Yes. Having
something a lot told us not to do.
Don't eat haram food. Excellent. Don't eat haram food.
I need you to give me example of one thing. That's one type of food that's Haram. So we know. Yes. Pork, excellent. Pork is one of the things that is haram polymetallic, one meter, what dem, while metaphyseal all of the products that come from the pig, including pork and all of the other products, so pork, we're not allowed. So Allah told us to do things. And Allah told us not to do things, the things that our Lord told us not to do. Is there a reason for them? Or just allow us to test if you're going to listen or not?
Did Allah just you know, sometimes people make up rules that don't make sense. Would you agree? Like these all these some of these rules at the moment, we have to follow everywhere.
What about the rules of Allah when Allah tells you don't do something? Is there a reason for it? Yes, my.
Very good. Excellent. So for example, you gave me another example of the Haram food, which is like the animal which is like the sheep or the lab, that is not when slaughtered it. Bismillah is not set over. Excellent. Very good example. But I want to know, when Allah made something haram for you, is there a reason for that? Or is it just to see, you know, just because this dunya is difficult, and there's tests and trials? Is there a reason why a lot of meetings haram for you?
What do you think?
I like that very good. I like that. He wants to test you if you're going to be a good Muslim, okay. But more than that, not just that I like to have a very good answer. It's a very good answer.
He wants you to go the agenda. I want you to think about something Allah said, you read to law who become a user while you read to become an Ursula, Allah wants things to be easy. Allah doesn't want things to be difficult. Everything Allah made her on he made her arm because it's bad for you. He didn't make it haram just to make life difficult for you. Everything that is haram, it's Haram, because it's bad for you. So when we don't eat, for example, pork, is it because just you know, Muslims don't eat pork? Or is it because pork is actually something bad for you?
Yeah. What do you think will be?
net nanny? I want to answer this question, though.
It's bad for you. Allah doesn't make anything haram except that there's a reason for it. And we know that from our last name, and Hakeem Hakim and when Allah said, Hc meten ballia.
Allah has infinite wisdom. Everything Allah does is wise. Allah doesn't want to make things difficult for you. So when sometimes, for example, when a girl grows up and she starts to wear the hijab was difficult. Why do I have to wear it? I don't want to why, why do I have to wear it? What's good for you a lot doesn't tell you to do something that isn't good for you. Everything Allah told you to do. There is a reason for it. And it's good for you. And everything I told you not to do. There's a reason for it. And it is bad for you. But do we always know the reason?
Do you think we always know the reason? What do you think use have to always know the reason? No. Sometimes we don't know the reason. So what do we have to do here? We have to submit give up.
Allah knows best. But we know that if Allah made something haram for us, that's because it's bad for us. And if Allah told us we have to do something, that's because it's good for us. What about recommended things
that you don't have to do but you should do?
How do we understand those?
Okay, it's good for us. But it doesn't matter if you leave it one sometimes. Yeah, it's good for you, but it doesn't matter if you leave it sometimes. And what about things that I disliked macro?
Go on, you finish off.
So so there are things that are bad for you, but it doesn't matter if you do them sometimes. So for example, drinking when standing up
Drinking when standing up is not as good for you as drinking sitting down right? In fact, like even though I am said when you drink standing up, the water just goes through you, and it doesn't really benefit you very much.
Does it hurt you if you drink standing up? Every now and again, rarely, it doesn't hurt you, right? But if you did it all the time, what would happen?
You would actually start you know, you you would get you would get sick and it wouldn't benefit you. So the things that Allah dislikes are the things which are bad for you. But if you do it from time to time, okay, doesn't it doesn't hurt you too much if you do it from time to time, but as for the things that are Haram, we must never do those things. Never unless we have no choice at all must never do that. Okay. All right, we've got we've got quite far through our discussion. Go on out. last idea, and then I'm going to move to a different topic. Well, a different part of the topic.
Yes, definitely. Because a lot said about listening to the shaytaan. Allah said, for example, in ma Moodle can be sued. You will fasher what enter kulu Allah Allahu Malhotra animal, the shaytaan tells you to do horrible things, dirty things. And he tells you to do bad and he tells you to do to say about Allah what you don't know. So definitely, we shouldn't be listening to the shape line. And Allah said, initial finer local. I do one factor he do who I do what shaytaan is your enemy? So make him make him your enemy? How do you behave with your enemy? Do you listen to him?
If you have an enemy, if you have an enemy, enemy, someone's waiting for you with a gun outside the door. He wants to he wants to shoot you. You are the enemy. Are you going to sit stand and say tell me a story? No. So that's why we don't listen to the shaitaan. Okay, stop the questions for a second. Put your hands down. Anyone on YouTube got his hands up, put your hands down as well. And we're going to move on to the next section. Which is
the word Islam. Our religion is Islam, right? We all agreed. Everyone happy? What's your religion? Islam? Very good. We talked about what Islam means.
Islam was the religion of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, would you agree?
He was a Muslim, and Islam was his religion. What about the Prophet Jesus? What was his religion? Pisa? Ali Salaam. What was his religion? Our Prophet Mohammed Salah was Muslim. his religion was Islam. What was the religion of Isa? Ali? His Salatu was Salam.
Hmm, interesting. That was the internet. That was the answer I was expecting you to give. Now I want to hear if anyone else has any different answer. Yes.
Okay, so that's the same answer. There's the same answer.
So some people so far said, Christian,
Oscar, what was the religion of Isa?
Okay, Christian again, does the same one.
Muslim? And the answer that Danny gave is correct.
Raisa was not a Christian. But that's what people say about him. Who are Christians, right? He wasn't Christian. He was a Muslim. his religion was Islam. So let me ask you a second question. Just to get this clear. Abraham Ibrahim. What was his religion?
Yes. Have you been Islam? newer? alayhis salam what was his religion?
Islam Okay, Mossad is a tricky one. a difficult one. Think about this. Be careful. Think carefully Musashi salam, what was his religion?
Islam Alhamdulillah wa Salatu martoma. You guys got it now. All of the prophets, their religion was Islam, and they were Muslims. But we have a problem now.
How could they be Muslims when the Quran was revealed? After them the Quran was revealed after them right in
And now feel a little cutter. We sent it down later to Qatar the Quran came down on, on later to Qatar. The Quran came down from Allah to the Prophet Mohammed saw iclm jabril brought the revelation to the Prophet Mohammed Salim all of the prophets came before the Quran was sent down. So how can they be Muslim? When the Quran was sent down? before them, this is a tough question to answer.
That's where everyone has their hand. Not everyone
who have not heard from recently.
Very good. I really like that is an excellent answer. Very well done, Masha, Allah, all the prophets, they told the people about Islam. Actually, I'm going to answer this one for you to give you your answers. totally correct. I'm just going to expand on.
Okay, I'm going to say to you this, there are two meanings of the word Islam.
One is Islam generally.
And one is Islam in a special sense in a special way. So generally, Islam means submission to Allah did resist submit to Allah. Yes. Did Adam submit to Allah? Yes. Did Mohammed submit to Allah? Yes. did not submit to Allah. Yes. Did Ibrahim submit to Allah? Yes. So they were all Muslims. in a general sense. The special meaning of Muslim? Is the Muslim that we know today meaning the one who believes in a law alone with no partner worships Him alone with no partner and believes that Mohammed Salim is the last and final messenger, and the Quran is our scripture and so on. That's the special meaning of Islam mean, that's the meaning of Islam as in Muslim today. But generally, all of
the prophets were Muslim.
Now, why is it then I've got really good question, because many of you said, Christian. Yeah, many of you said, Christian.
How did that mix up ended up happening? Where what happened where people went, why did people I mean, as I said, he's a Muslim. And he submitted to Allah. So why did he? Why did people start to think that he was a Christian? How did that get mixed up in people's minds?
Go on ash.
shaytaan confused, and that's true, but I want to know how shaytaan confused what happened.
What happened to the message, did the message stay preserved and saved? Know, the message got corrupted? It got changed, and it got lost. The message got changed, and it got lost. What did he say? He said, markkula, whom Elana amongst any be any Budo la hora B, or a Becca, I only said to them, what you told me to say worship Allah, my Lord, and your Lord. But over time, his message got lost the shape, Vaughn came and tried to change it in people's mind.
And people lost the message until they started to even believe it was a different religion, from the religions that came, or the religion that came before. Why is it so important that Islam is one religion for all the prophets? Why is that so important for us?
To believe that Islam is one religion for all the prophets? Yes, maybe.
You have to scratch your head that way next time otherwise, I think you put your hand up.
Brilliant. It clarifies for us it shows us that none of the prophets believed in anything except Islam.
And it tells us when someone says Well, what religion what religion should you have been before Mohammed was born Sal, Allahu Allah, you were sent them Muslim?
What religion would you have been if you were born at the time of ASAP Muslim?
What religion was more Muslim? What religion was Ibrahim Muslim? It shows you the religion of Allah is how many religions does Allah have?
One religion, not three religions, not Judaism and Christianity and Islam. Allah has one religion. In Edina, in de la Hill Islam, the only religion in the sight of Allah is
There's no other religion
that Allah will accept from you. So on the Day of Judgment, if you come in front of Allah, and you will not a Muslim, what will happen? We'll accept that from you.
We'll accept that from you know, what's the evidence? What may Yeah, they tell you, why are all Islami dnn fella yo cobalamin, wahoo irati minahasa read, whoever wants a religion, which is not Islam, Allah will never ever, ever accept it from him. I was never going to accept that religion from him. And in the Hereafter, when he dies, and he stands in front of Allah, he's going to be a loser. That person is going to be a loser, the person who chose a religion, which isn't Islam, the only religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. So now I have another question, which is a really important question as part of our discussion about what our religion is. How do we know what Islam
This is really important. I just put your hand down for a second while I explained the question, because maybe, maybe you think it's easier than it is.
One day I come in, and I say, Everybody put your hands on your head, because that's part of Islam.
How do you tell what part of Islam? and what isn't part of Islam? How do you know what's really Islam? and what isn't? from Islam?
Go on. Awesome.
Very good. I like that answer. So you know that that Islam is about knowing who Allah is and worshipping Allah giving all those rights. So Islam is that that's very true. But I want someone who says, okay, prove it to me, how do I know what how do I know? How do I know whether this is my culture? Or my religion? Do you know what I mean by culture? Like, for example,
let's give let's give an example. like someone's culture is to wear certain kinds of clothing. Right? Like somewhere in someone's culture. Like they were like this, for example, this kind of clothing I'm wearing right here. This is from a certain kind of culture, right? How do I know some food is from a certain kind of culture? How do I know the difference between someone's culture and someone's religion? Like how do I know what really Islam? That's my question? Yes. How do you
Okay, good. I like that very good answer. You have to listen to what Allah said. So how do I know what Allah what Allah said?
The core an excellent area. So that's my first one, the Quran, the Quran? That's my first source of knowing what Islam said. So here I go. When I say to me, Islam says that zohore is how many records for you all agree? Does anyone want to pray one? Raka three, five, no, everyone agrees four. could just show me where that isn't.
I give you a clue. It's not in the Quran.
anywhere at all in the Quran.
So there must be something else as well as the Quran. The Quran tells me what Aki masala performed the prayer worker Omar Abdullah carrying me cuckoo with people who are making rakura was Judah welco Talib make sujood and come near to Allah.
I want to know where did it Where does it prove to me Where do you show it to me through horas por la carte? How do I know the hardest for you told me for all of you give me a favor. You sat down you gave me a first one just like that. Just like that. You all said Florida.
Done finished. Nobody had any other opinion. Where did you get this from? It's not in the Quran.
Go on the Sunnah. What is the Sunnah hold on this was so now what is this?
What the prophet SAW Selim said and what he did, what he approved of and his description.
Can you all follow this with me because this is important. The sooner
Is what the prophets lie Selim said.
What he said,
when he said something, and it was recorded and memorized and then written down.
That's the sooner right. What he did. He went here he did this his He smiled. He laughed. He prayed here. Yeah. What he did what he approved of. So someone did something in front of him. And he approved of it. He said, it's okay. In other words, he smiled or he remained silent. He was okay. He didn't mind
and his description, his personality, how did he look like that is the sooner and that's our second source of Islam where we get Islam from. Everything else comes from those two. Have you ever heard of any other any other ways any other evidences in Islam apart from the Quran and the Sunnah? That might be a difficult question for you guys might be a little bit young, maybe for this one. But have you heard anyone else talk about any other evidences, apart from the Quran and the Sunnah? No, not your dreams. Not what feels good.
Anyone heard of any other evidences? I give you a clue. When I asked you about the heart
for like art, all of you said the same thing. That's my clue.
Okay, but the profits gonna come and they're gonna come into sooner. Right? And I see what you mean. You mean the other profits, right? Yeah, the other profits that comes under Roman cabana. And it comes in the Quran and the Sunnah. So you're right about that like the previous
like the previous prophets, but that comes towards in, in the Quran, right? I'm sure is something that doesn't come to us in the Quran, or the Sunnah.
But you all said for Katherine.
Hold on, hold on. Just take one word out of that.
I know not to words sometimes.
I'm saying that as if silently agreement. So what about if all the Muslims the all the scholars of Islam agree on something?
This can also be an evidence in Islam. But that evidence comes back to the Quran and the Sunnah, because it's mentioned in the Quran. And it's mentioned in the, in the Sunnah, so it doesn't go outside of the Quran and the Sunnah, really, when everyone agrees on something, it's still part of the Quran and the Sunnah.
So in your life, I'm going to tell you something.
I'm going to say something very important guys. I want everyone to listen to this and give me full attention for this one.
The profit so I sell them said for in how many Irish mink home for sale rockety laughs and Kathy or whoever of you lives for a long time is going to see lots of differences.
Have you ever seen that people differ disagreeing about what Islam is or isn't Have you ever seen that Yeah.
Everyone just fighting over it not right yes hello out how am I said he said she said we said and
they fighting with each other about what Islam is about. And one person believes this at one person believes that you see a lot of that right a lot of that
family can be so Natty so go back to the Sunnah of the Prophet slice lm mssql Bihar hold on to it. I'll do la has been no urging, you know your teeth at the back here. Your big teeth, the teeth you chomp down on hold like this whole like this onto the sun don't let it go. What is that Heidi tell us what Yamamoto says more in Aquila monitor set in beta and keep away from the new things in the religion of Islam. Keep away from the new things. Because every new thing is an innovation. What does that mean? Who can explain that part of the Hadith to me?
So a lot didn't the new things, or the things that ally didn't tell us to do. And the prophet SAW Selim didn't tell us to do and his companions.
They didn't show us to do it either.
It can be soon that he was shooting it in
a rush he didn't stick to my sooner and the sooner of the right. The guide qualified
So guys, I want you just to give me attention on this one. It's important. If you're ever in doubt, or you ever are confused about what's a part of Islam, and what's not a part of Islam, you have to go back to three things. You go back to the Quran,
you go back to the Sunnah. And you go back to the companions and what they understood. So let me ask you a question. Who are the companions?
the people who are with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam excellent. Can anyone give me more details about like a proper explanation? The people who were with the Prophet sighs so if I saw the prophets, I saw him in a dream.
Would I be a companion? No, like you said, you have to be with him in his in his time. Who's a companion?
Who's a companion?
Okay, someone who helps him and follows him but you might help him and follow him right now. Like you might help the religion of Islam and you might follow the Prophet slicin right now. But that wouldn't make you a companion. Yes, Anna's
Business believed in him
yet and died
as a Muslim Mashallah, you got it spot on. A person who saw the prophets I saw them or heard him and if you couldn't see him,
and he believed in him at that time, and he died as a Muslim during his lifetime he believed in him and he died isms. Man Ron Nabi, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would mean me he will matter eyelid Islam. Whoever saw the Prophet seisen during his lifetime, and when he saw him he was a believer and he died as a Muslim. That's a companion Can you give me some of the names of the companions?
Or this easy Where are you all sleeping in the back? Give me the name of some of the companions
no companion I want so hobbies for hobby it seems to hobby.
Abu bakkar acidic the best of the companions are the Allahu is
the best of the companions. Yes. Who was the second best after Abu Bakar
Omar and then after Omar who came
Bilaal but bill comes later I want directly after Mr. Pillai is a companion rhodiola one pillar
is a companion rhodiola one buddy comes afterwards. I want the third best
or ceman what are the loved one and the fourth?
Everyone knows the fourth. I live in Abu Talib Ravi Allahu anhu.
Okay, very good. So we get to learn more about them in the stories about the companions. Okay, so when you feel confused about Islam, you go back to Quran
for an under the Sunnah. And the companions.
You go back to the Quran. You go back to the Sunnah you go back to the companions, and you look at how they understood the Quran and the Sunnah. And if you find this thing you're confused about explain the Alhamdulilah
and if you don't find the explain there, then you realize that this might be something which is from the new
Lee invented practices, the new things that we suppose to keep away from.
Very, very good.
Allah azza wa jal
called us Muslims.
Right, who has a macro Muslim he
was he had, he is the one who called you named you to be Muslims. What kind of a Muslim are you?
What kind of a Muslim I
you can answer that the same way as I spoke to you about before
I'm a Muslim who follows the Quran
I'm a Muslim who follows the Sunnah, the way that the companions understood them. That's your answer. What kind of a Muslim are you? That's the kind of Muslim I am.
I'm not the kind of Muslim who throws the Quran behind my back.
I'm not the kind of Muslim who doesn't believe in the sooner
because there are some people who call themselves Muslim and don't believe in the sooner
I'm not the kind of Muslim who follows the Quran and the Sunnah, how I think it should be.
I'm not the kind of Muslim who follows the Quran and the Sunnah based on my dreams and my feelings and what feels good today. I follow the Quran and the Sunnah, the way that the companions understood it the way Abu Bakr understood the way Omar understood it. The way Earth man understood it the way Ali understood it.
The way that bill as you mentioned, or the Allahu anhu
what are the Allahu anhu he understood it.
That's how I want to understand the Quran and the Sunnah. Because there are many, many Muslims who say we follow the Quran and the Sunnah many people in fact, almost everybody, almost all Muslims will say to you, yeah, Quran Sunday or and so on. But how do you understand them? When you see that Hadith written down there? How do you understand it? You go and look, how did Abu Bakr understanding how did Omar understand why did Omar and Abu Bakar and earth man and Ali and Bilal all those companions? Why did they understand it better
than me? than you? Why do they understand it better?
Because the Prophet slicin was their teacher. They were closer to him. They were alive when he was alive. They were with him. They learned from him.
You guys learn from a teacher who learned from a teacher who learned from a teacher from a teacher from a teacher who learned from a Teacher, Teacher, Teacher, Teacher, Teacher, Teacher, Teacher, Teacher, teacher, oh, and keep going and going and going. Eventually, you get somewhere near to the Prophet size and
they learned from the prophets I sent directly every day Abubakar went out with the prophet SAW Selim Omar went out with the prophets, all Prophet, how was this? How is this what do you do for this? They learned from him directly, so they know how to understand the Quran? And how to understand the Sunnah.
All right, but I've got your question about Islam and Muslim.
Which one is perfect?
It's almost like a riddle, but not really.
Put your hand up for a second I want to see see.
Islam. Brilliant. Why?
Islam is what Allah revealed. Who's a Muslim.
Someone who practices Islam. Does every Muslim practice Islam exactly like Allah revealed it?
No, we make mistakes, right? Sometimes we do things right. Sometimes we do things wrong. Does every teacher give you 100%? The right answer every time?
No, my two kids are sat there going? No.
No, we've tested that. That definitely doesn't give us the right answer every time definitely not not not not. That does not give us the right answer every time. Your teacher doesn't always give you the right answer. The right answer is the answer that came from Allah. The answer that came from the prophets, I send them the answer the companions understood. That's the right answer. Sometimes your teacher gets it right. Sometimes the teacher gets it wrong. Sometimes Muslims do the right thing and sometimes Muslims do the wrong thing.
A Muslim might lie, but lying is haram. A Muslim might steal but stealing is haram.
A Muslim might be bad to their mom and dad but being bad to your mom and dad is haram.
Just because a Muslim does that doesn't change Islam, Islam. Islam is still perfect, was the proof that Islam is perfect. Allah said le oma acmella Tula comm Deena comm what it's meant to Eileen, Matty, what are we to leko Islam Medina today. I have completed my favor for you.
completed your religion for you and completed my favorite for you I've completed your religion your religion is done, finished perfect. And I've chosen for you, Islam as your religion. Your religion is Islam and Islam is perfect. Muslims. Yeah, sometimes there are good Muslims not so good Muslims, Muslims who do many things right? But still Everybody makes mistakes, right? Everybody gets things right everybody gets things wrong. And that's why Imam Malik has a very famous statement. You know, Mr. Manager, anyone heard of Mr. Malik before? mathematical ns emammal doubted hegira the Imam of Medina, one of the great scholars of Islam he said kulu new Holloman Kohli, he will you track. He
said everyone has things that he said that are right. And things that he said that are
the person in that grave whose grave Do you think he was pointing at? He was the Imam of Medina might help you out.
Who doesn't get things wrong?
prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Illa Sahaba del Cabo except the person in that grave and he pointed to the grave of the prophet SAW Selim. He's the one who didn't get anything wrong. As for us, everyone, no matter how big the ship is, no matter how much knowledge she has, everyone gets things right. And everyone gets things wrong. So we go back to the core and the sooner the way that the companions understood, okay, I have a last point that I want to chat to you about before we go to the questions. Allah said polyoma XML to welcome Dina come to the I completed your religion for you what it's meant to LA come near Mati and I completed my blessing for you. I've got a really easy
question that all of you can answer. And it's part of what you said in the class today.

Why what are some of the blessings was the name of Islam the blessings of being a Muslim near to Islam or near
of being a Muslim what's what's good about being a Muslim? Why is it important?
Because own it's the only way to worship Allah properly. And it's the only way to paradise beautiful

In general, you have everything you want we have to do description of gender sometime when one of our classes we have to do we have to talk about gender description of gender sometime inshallah one of our classes
what's some of the blessings of Islam? So I said, What's good about being a Muslim?
Yes, happy in the back. Yes.
You have the Quran. You have the guidance from Allah the Quran that you can it's there preserved for you, you can read it, you can understand it. Beautiful. Yes.
We'll come to that in the questions. Okay. You can ask me that question in the questions. Okay. Very good. Keep the question in your mind but just ask it in the in the q&a was some of the blessings of Islam
by you by worshipping and we said that you know, how to worship Allah.
Okay, wow, that was that was nice. I like that. That was a little bit. Okay. It was it was nice, Mashallah, you have a law that actually exists because everything, everything else that people worship besides Allah is fake, right? People worshipping
trees and stones and stars. Can you imagine? I just want you to imagine guys listen to me, right? I want you to imagine that there are some people tonight who will go out and they will raise up their hands to the stars, and they're going to pray to the stars to help them.
I'm going to tell you more than that. I went to India
and I'm not just saying not to
Only in India, but I happen to see this in India, I saw a queue of people, as long as you can see,
each one of them was carrying a platter of fruit and food. And in front of them was a cow.
And they would go to the cow, and they would make sagitta to the cow, and they would worship the cow.
And the cow just went more
they believe that cow is their Lord.
What a blessing you have the you don't go every day and worship a cow.
What a blessing you have the you don't worship someone who's dead.
You don't go to a grave and worship a dead person. What a blessing you have that you don't worship the sun. There are people who get up every morning with my own eyes I've seen I was in Sharjah near my house was to live I with my own eyes. I saw the sunrise and I saw someone sitting worshiping the sun.
Well, like is there anything more silly than this?
Is there anything? Is there anything that is any suffer which is bigger than this anything which is more silly and more strange than a person who's worshipping the cow worshipping the sun worshipping the stars? Somebody who believed? Do you think this is only in in strange, you know, far off lands? Right? Tell me today, open a newspaper in England, there will be a section that tells you that the stars are gonna affect you today.
There will be a section in the newspaper that says to you today, this star moved over here. So you're going to have a car accident. Today, this star went over here. So you're going to find happiness. Is there anything more crazy than this?
What does that star have to do with anything? Nothing at all. But the people read it like
the star is really going to change my life. Oh, no. Look at the star. Look at my life. Like you have you know who your Lord is? You know Allah, you worship Allah. Don't ever leave that for anything. Don't ever leave that and change that and go back to worshipping the sun and the moon and the stars of the dead people and the stones.
So people do that as well. Even in the UK, but big stones. They go to the stone, they ask the stone for help.
Please. Have you tried asking a stone for me? I don't ask a stone for help. Have you tried asking for anything? We tried asking a stone for the time of day to start with, you know, you tell me what the time of day is? Please? Do you ever get an answer back from the stone? Never. The stone didn't create you the stone doesn't know the stone doesn't answer you to add the stone doesn't hear you.
Yeah, you worship Allah. And that's a big blessing. Now I'm going to tell you a little bit briefly for just two minutes. I'm gonna tell you a little bit about myself because as you know, I wasn't born as a Muslim. I wasn't born a Muslim. I think everyone in this room was born Muslim apart from me right? far as I know, everyone here was born Muslim. And when you were born, your mom and dad or one of them were Muslim.
That's such a big blessing. I went when I was your age, what you are all now. I was not a Muslim. I didn't come to the masjid. I didn't pray. I didn't know about Allah. I didn't know that I had to worship Allah. I didn't know that I had to pray five times a day. I didn't know what was good, what was bad, what was hell and what was harm.
And I had to go and look for that and find that out. And because of that, I really hold on to it really tight. I don't want to ever let it go because I know what it was like before when I didn't have it. The only problem you guys have you have a big blessing. You're born Muslim. But sometimes you forget how big of a blessing it is. Because you don't know what it's like not to have it. And will lie there are so many young kids today who are going away from Islam. Do you know that you see your friends not coming to the masjid not praying, not wanting to be Muslim anymore, not dressing like a Muslim not talking like a Muslim. not behaving like a Muslim changing their name
to a non Muslim name.
Hold on to your Islam.
Islam is your religion. Your Muslim. Hold on to it. Be strong. Keep it with you.
The last thing I'm going to talk to you about Sharlto Allah is part of your religion being Islam is that you have to be different from the non Muslims.
Is that true? Would you agree? You are different, right?
You know, when one of your friends goes off and worships the sun and the stars in the morning that you know all those other things, you come to the masjid and worship Allah, you're different. You have to be different. You should be proud to be different. You shouldn't be shy, to be different. You're different because you're a Muslim. You know, Allah, you worship Allah and that makes you different. And the prophets lie Selim said mentorship but have you comin for a woman whom whoever resembles What does resemble mean?
Like copies like kind of looks like Yeah.
A people is one of them. And meaning if you start to copy the non Muslims in what they do, and you start to behave like them and act like them, and talk like them, and even worship like them, you start to do everything like them, then you become one of them. Right? So you have to be proud to be different.
You have to be proud to be Muslim and proud to be different from those other people. That doesn't mean you can't be nice to them. Lionheart como la, Annie Latina them you call to config. Dean, what am you heard you're coming Dr. Rico. antibody, Roma toxie. to him. A lot doesn't stop you from being nice to them a lot doesn't stop you to being fair to them. But don't be like them. Don't try and copy them. Don't be amazed when you see them on TV, or you see them on YouTube shouldn't be watching TV. But in case or you see them on your phone or you see them in school or you see them in the newspaper. Don't be amazed by them. Don't say I want to be that person. You don't want to be that
person. Why don't you want to be that person. Because what's going to happen to them when they die.
If they don't change, and they die like that, as a non Muslim, they're going to go to Johanna.
They're going to go to the fire. Nobody wants to be like that. So don't be like that. Don't copy them. There's a really important hadith of Anna Subin medical of the law and
the prophets I send them he said al Maru Mirman unhappy, you're going to be raised with the person that you love. If you love Abu Bakar you try to copy him. You love Bella, you try to copy him. You love our Isha, our mother Ayesha, the wife of the Prophet slicin. And the daughter bobak. I will record you tried to copy her. You love our mother have settled the loved one had the daughter of Rama, you tried to copy her. And you try to be like those people in Sharla yomo kiama, you're going to find yourself after you die with them.
If you're looking at pop stars, and film stars, and you're looking at celebrities, and you're looking at YouTubers, or whatever, and you're trying to be like them, the problem is your mo kiama you might end up with them. And they're not going to be in a good place if they stay in that way. So don't be frightened to be different. Be proud of your religion, be proud of your Islam, and be different from all those people who chose a different way. You chose Islam and make Islam your choice. Don't make Islam just your religion of your mom and dad. Right is that you understand what I mean by that? Don't make Islam the religion of your mom and dad. What I mean by that is I'm just
Muslim because my mom and dad almost
no, you know how important Islam is you learnt it? And now inshallah you chose Islam for yourself. And of course, I mentioned this whole topic and this whole class because this is the second question you're going to get asked Where?
When you're in the grave, the first question was,
who is your Lord Mara book? And the second question, Medina, what is your religion?
So when you're asked who is my Lord, you're gonna say, Rob be Allah, my Lord is Allah. And when you're asked Medina, you're gonna say Dini, my religion.
And Islam is the religion of Islam, the religion of Islam. That's what a lot made easy for me to mention. I think we have Do we have any time before the
do Is it time now?
Okay, so we have time for a couple questions before that.
you're right. You're completely right. When you try
You voted for a cat. But when you travel, it is it's you're completely right about that. You're right. I was just trying to give an example. I should have said model three records because that doesn't change. You're right. Does that allow halen four?
Did anyone else have any questions?
Yes. Hello. Hold on. I had a question from you had a question for me about black magic, right? Black Magic is one of the biggest sins. Actually all magic is black magic. There is no good magic. There is no white magic blue magic pink magic or any other color magic. Magic is just all horrible. It's all horrible. So it's all evil, and it takes you away from Islam. So it's not allowed ever.
I don't know. I mean, I don't think this word comes in the Quran. Black Magic. The word that comes in the Quran is just magic. But some people they say black magic white magic good magic. I don't think that's a good word to use the word all magic is all magic is haram. And, and proper magic. real magic takes you outside of Islam. It's one of the things that makes you go away from and outside of Islam.
Brilliant, I love that. That's a that's a beautiful summary of what we said. Make sure you always listen to Allah. Take your religion as Islam. Be a good Muslim, and you will go to gender Eileen has a beautiful summary of what we said. Very nice.
Yes, asked the question.
What's the enemy of Islam and Muslims?
I think that's a good point. I like I like that point you made you made a point that not everyone who uses the word Islamic is really Islamic. I agree with you. I agree with you. Like this. Yeah, like this.
And other places. You're right. And other places. You're right you everything you said is completely right. completely right. And it has not they have nothing to do those people have nothing to do with Islam.
Okay, you're right. Those people they have nothing to do with Islam. So be careful. Not everyone who uses the name Islam really has a connection to Islam as a very good point. I think that's excellent.
Don't copy the people who have a different religion and who chose a different way. That's beautiful point. I love that. Excellent. Yes, having
Okay, so if you see someone reading Quran, or being nice to people, should you copy them? Yeah, you should copy the person who's practicing Islam properly.
