Since we we poked the topic and it

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

kind of exploded, a lot of people started

00:00:05 --> 00:00:08

talking about it and some people started throwing

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

out some things about

00:00:10 --> 00:00:11

about

00:00:11 --> 00:00:14

LGBTQ in Palestine, and saying that,

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

the LGBTQ

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

movement has been the biggest allies to the

00:00:17 --> 00:00:19

Palestinian cause, and what will we do without

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

the LGBTQ movement supporting our Palestinian cause? First

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

of all, the genocide's still going on. Let

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

me remind you that. So whatever support has

00:00:27 --> 00:00:29

been provided thus far, it has not stopped

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

the genocide. So there's not a situation where

00:00:31 --> 00:00:33

we feel like we're indebted to anybody. 2nd

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

of all, if someone is going to support

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

the liberation and the honor of the dignity

00:00:38 --> 00:00:41

of anybody else, it has to be with

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

no strings attached.

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

It has to be because it's the right

00:00:44 --> 00:00:46

thing to do. It is not a quid

00:00:46 --> 00:00:48

pro quo. This is not a transaction

00:00:49 --> 00:00:51

where they are trading their support

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

for our support for their issue. That is

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

not how this works. And the 3rd issue,

00:00:55 --> 00:00:57

and this is brought up multiple times and

00:00:57 --> 00:00:59

we'll say it again. If you go to

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

Palestine, and you ask the average person on

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

the street, would they accept this type of

00:01:03 --> 00:01:04

thing? Would they accept

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

the these ideologies about sexuality

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

and gender that are very very popular on

00:01:09 --> 00:01:12

the left? The overwhelming response would be, no.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

The groups on the ground that are trying

00:01:14 --> 00:01:16

to resist the occupation as best they can,

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

what would there be response

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

to these ideologies and these groups? Would they

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

support their ideologies?

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

No.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

So if you want to support the cause

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

because it's the right thing to do, you're

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

welcome no matter who you are. But don't

00:01:29 --> 00:01:30

for a second

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

think that you're going to impose your values

00:01:32 --> 00:01:35

on the same people that you're supposedly trying

00:01:35 --> 00:01:36

to liberate

00:01:36 --> 00:01:39

and help in the first place. That is

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

not allyship.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:43

It's not. It's actually a type of colonization

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

and a type of imposing and imposition and

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

*,

00:01:47 --> 00:01:50

and we'd rather honestly not have your help,

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

if that's what it's gonna be. What some

00:01:51 --> 00:01:54

people have tried to say, unfortunately, some very

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

westernized academics and even some westernized Muslims

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

have attempted to try to eke out an

00:01:59 --> 00:02:02

argument, actually the Quran isn't against,

00:02:03 --> 00:02:06

same * actions, and actually it isn't, and

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07

the comb of loot story has been misinterpreted,

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

and this all has been first of all,

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

it's borrowed from Christian apologetics. Second of all,

00:02:12 --> 00:02:15

it's been dealt with multiple multiple multiple times.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:17

There is someone who named Scott Kugel, who

00:02:17 --> 00:02:18

attempted to make this argument

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

a decade or 2 ago and will be

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

invade completely demolished it. If you haven't seen

00:02:23 --> 00:02:25

it, go online. Will be invade, VAIID.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:29

Completely demolished any attempt of Quranic revisionism.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

Right? Which is attempting to

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

act as if, Masha'Allah, in 20 24, you're

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

the 1st person to understand this Quran. You're

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

the 1st person to understand this Qur'anic verse

00:02:39 --> 00:02:41

with the story of Lut in a new

00:02:41 --> 00:02:44

way. Wow. Allahu Akbar. 1400 years of people

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

interpreting and understanding this have all been wrong.

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam,

00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

according to your logic, okay,

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

Didn't understand this verse properly. Think about how

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

dangerous that is. Our shahada, need I remind

00:02:56 --> 00:02:58

you is, La ilaha illallah

00:02:59 --> 00:03:00

Muhammadun Rasulullah.

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

We take guidance from the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu

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

Alaihi Wasallam. We don't take guidance from you.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:08

So I don't care who comes in 2024

00:03:08 --> 00:03:11

and tells me that everybody or implies that

00:03:11 --> 00:03:14

the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam misunderstood

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

the story of Lut in the Quran, or

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

misunderstood the guidance that Islam has or the

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

Sharia has on,

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

gender and on sexuality,

00:03:23 --> 00:03:26

then you should question your shahada, and the

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

validity of your shahada. We're not making tech

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

for you, that's not our business. But you

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

should really really check yourself rather than point

00:03:33 --> 00:03:35

to us and make us seem like we're

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

What I What do they call us? Islamic

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

fundamentalists? I think that's what they called us.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

I mean, Masha'Allah. If believing in Islam makes

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

us a fundamentalist, then I guess if the

00:03:42 --> 00:03:46

shoe fits, Who are our real allies and

00:03:46 --> 00:03:50

do allies sometimes do more damage than good?

00:03:50 --> 00:03:53

Do allies, people who tell us that they

00:03:53 --> 00:03:56

are supporting us, actually hold us back and

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

stop us from the work that actually needs

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

to be done either through distraction,

00:04:00 --> 00:04:02

or through dividing and conquering, or for anything

00:04:02 --> 00:04:05

else. 2 hap 2 things happened this week

00:04:05 --> 00:04:07

that are super super important to this conversation.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:09

1, let's bring it up. Mark Ruffalo,

00:04:09 --> 00:04:12

somebody who has been very supportive of Palestine.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

He made a comment this week, where Here

00:04:14 --> 00:04:15

we go.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:17

Project 2025 is not a game, he says.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:20

It's white Christian nationalism. It's the Sharia law

00:04:20 --> 00:04:23

of Christian crazy people who aren't Christian at

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

all, etcetera, etcetera.

00:04:25 --> 00:04:25

But,

00:04:26 --> 00:04:26

okay,

00:04:27 --> 00:04:29

what we see here, we have somebody who

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

has spoken in support of Palestine.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:32

However,

00:04:33 --> 00:04:34

who has used

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

Sharia

00:04:35 --> 00:04:39

law as a euphemism for something oppressive and

00:04:39 --> 00:04:39

barbaric.

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

Now Sharia,

00:04:41 --> 00:04:44

the Sharia is something that the vast majority

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

of Palestinians

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

believe in

00:04:47 --> 00:04:48

and support a 100%.

00:04:49 --> 00:04:51

Okay? Yes. Even some of the Christians and

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

the Jews. I I hate to break it

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

to the people who play identity politics and

00:04:55 --> 00:04:56

ask us to say like, oh, no, but

00:04:56 --> 00:04:58

you're erasing the Christians. Oh, no, but you're

00:04:58 --> 00:05:01

erasing the Jews. I know Palestinian Christians

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

who said that life was much better for

00:05:04 --> 00:05:06

them under Sharia than whatever else has been

00:05:06 --> 00:05:07

going on since.

00:05:08 --> 00:05:08

Okay?

00:05:09 --> 00:05:10

So understand

00:05:10 --> 00:05:11

understand that

00:05:12 --> 00:05:14

when we have an ally that steps out

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

of line or someone who has spoken up

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

on Palestine,

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

but they need to be educated, then you

00:05:20 --> 00:05:22

have to have some sort of accountability structure

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

to educate them. I say, yo Mark. And

00:05:24 --> 00:05:26

many people did. They say, hey Mark, listen.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

We appreciate your support of Palestine, but you're

00:05:29 --> 00:05:31

not gonna throw the city out under the

00:05:31 --> 00:05:34

bus. You don't get to support Palestine at

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

the expense

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

of

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

entrenching anti Islamic sentiment.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

Right? Like that, those 2 things don't go

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

together.

00:05:41 --> 00:05:44

Okay. So this is a very very important

00:05:44 --> 00:05:46

thing that we have to keep allies in

00:05:46 --> 00:05:48

check. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam made

00:05:48 --> 00:05:52

alliances with people but those alliances had accountability

00:05:52 --> 00:05:55

measures when the different tribes within Medina

00:05:56 --> 00:05:56

actually,

00:05:58 --> 00:05:59

they betrayed the Muslims.

00:06:00 --> 00:06:02

There were accountability measures that held them in

00:06:02 --> 00:06:05

check and even punish them if they were

00:06:05 --> 00:06:07

to step out of line. An ally quote

00:06:07 --> 00:06:08

unquote without accountability,

00:06:09 --> 00:06:12

sometimes if not all the time, is worse

00:06:12 --> 00:06:14

than having no ally at all.
