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

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

I'm

00:00:13--> 00:00:16

Youssef welcome Mr. Lachman filicudi, Naga Kumar many acleda our pseudo confessor tones and Halima, I'm

00:01:03--> 00:01:41

always in favor. We begin with the praise of a lot we send our prayers of peace upon our Navy Mohammed that's a lot of us send them. We testify with firmness and conviction that none is worthy of worship. Allah met the Prophet Mohammed sold a lot while he was setting them as his worshiping slave and final messenger. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala increases you and I in good increases you and I in his taqwa, and tough what is defined by the Buddha as everything that you do that protects you from jahannam, a taqwa el Rifai, Amina now. Anything that you need to believe in, to say or to do with your body that saves you from the punishment of Allah Subhana. Allah is an element

00:01:41--> 00:01:52

of taqwa. And the taqwa that we seek is the taqwa of love of Allah, fear of Allah and hoping Allah in equal measure, as a matter of

00:01:53--> 00:02:39

our face of the inner workings of our hearts have taught us that you have a complete love for Allah. But that love of Allah does not misguide you to not fear Him, and to not be wary of him. Our faith is not one of just love. But our faith is also one of fear. Failure to half Whoo hoo ha ha funy don't fear others but fear me, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and at times, we are in more need of hearing about the torment of jahannam than we are above the mercy of Gemini. A times were in more need of hearing about the misery that were experienced by those who preceded us and the difficulties that they faced in establishing and raising the caliber of Allah. Then it was about hearing the

00:02:39--> 00:02:44

victories that Islam was given by the blessing of Allah Subhana which is

00:02:45--> 00:03:08

equally that fear of a law should not ever temper you against the hope the job in the mercy of our main curse economy was and I pray that the time that we spend together is a time of counsel for each other. Where we have fun also fenberry what taqwa May Allah always join us in good Allahumma amin even if it is virtually for those who are watching at a distance from us in Perth.

00:03:10--> 00:03:32

As I was beginning to think about this topic, and I only want to spend with you 30 to 35 minutes, inshallah I know it's the evening for us people are waking up in New York said I want to come New Yorkers, but for us, it's getting to nighttime inshallah, and it's a bit frigid in Perth recently, but I'll warm you up, inshallah, throw a little bit of spice for the evening.

00:03:34--> 00:03:48

I discovered that when we want to speak about the lives of the Sahaba, especially of those of African origin, which is a polite way of saying dark skinned, which is a polite way of saying black. So how about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:03:51--> 00:04:02

It became an issue of al Qaeda, an issue of faith, faith. We're not here just to tell stories, you can read a lot of stories, you can watch a lot of stories.

00:04:03--> 00:04:13

So it's an issue of al Qaeda. But it's also an A History of salute, mannerisms, behaviors. It's also

00:04:15--> 00:04:37

a time where we need to correct misunderstandings of history, and myth appropriations of our history. And of course, when you speak about history, it's somebody telling you history. So that person is seeing it with their own eyes that might be different to the eyes that is experiencing it other than themselves. So there's a context that needs to be applied.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

But then it's also about revelation. The verses that I began when our wonderful versus the verses shift and Abdullah recited for us at the beginning of the first Raka of our Salatu Asia, Mohammed Salah he was sending Rasulullah when Medina ma who Allah defines

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

describes so it's an issue also of appreciation of the soul habit. So I thought I'd begin with it the issues of al Qaeda. And the word lt that it means of course it comes from the word alpha to tie something. So you need to tie your heart to Allah with these beliefs. This is Al Qaeda. What do you believe? What is the rope that is attaching you to Allah? What a placebo they have Lila hold on to the rope which rope the al Qaeda wears out either the Quran and the Sunnah. And

00:05:36--> 00:05:55

see that's a point of rafidah the prophets I send them says in the Hadith, about the necessity of the alarm. This hadith of airbaltic neisseria is one of the five Hadith the Lima Shabbat he says if all Hadith were gone, and we had this one with the other for our Deen is safe. Your Eman is safe.

00:05:57--> 00:06:43

Near the death of the prophets of Allah it was sudden demand airbaltic miseria he said, Waggoner Rasulullah Hassan the law to send them over 10 wedgie let me know how to do with all of admin Hello, are you for Kanaka nano are able to work during your Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I could have been said the prophets I seldom began to speak to us in a way of admonishing us that made our hearts empty, fearful desperate for hearing more something that will quell our anguish that our eyes everyone sitting shed tears in another rewire, he says Happy will have and happy will have a Messier and Messier hobbies, admonitions these advices some people memorize and others for golfers. And it's

00:06:43--> 00:06:57

almost as it as if he said the prophets I said let me start from us. So Allah to solder to salatu salam that the whole day when by the prophet is speaking to us of different things for lamea cache, nothing was left unsaid. Salalah

00:06:59--> 00:07:26

but where did the Prophet begin? For Hakuna rasulillah so I sent him a nano rebel tomorrow morning. On messenger of Allah. It seems as if this is the type of words that someone who is about to leave us would say someone who is about to leave and we might not hear from you again for ospina so after all these words you shared with us What should we do we also a lot how do we save ourselves from the tragedy that is coming

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

sakala Rasulullah Salallahu Salam aleikum

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

vikita Binda.

00:07:36--> 00:07:45

Take hold of the book of Allah was sunitinib via Sahaja was student Natalie hula fer and Maddie Gina mean bad

00:07:47--> 00:08:28

lamb sumati metal hula washi demon Medina Minh Bonnie hold on to the book of Allah hold on to my student that endless shooting now of those who will inherit from me the ability to lead you towards a lot of unrighteousness they're really a matter of course they tell us this uno de hula is not speaking about the whole effort, you know, Abu Bakr aroma of men and Ali at the exception of others. It's what all of the Sahaba agreed is the student of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because remember, at times or the Allahu alayhi wa wa is aroma. Sometimes he would have a statement that Allah, Allah Han who would respond to and Abdullah hegner mo may have a statement and

00:08:28--> 00:08:57

each other the Allahu anhu may have a response. And Abu Bakr would say something and Omar and the rest would say something else, such as the gathering of the Quran. They said, Yeah, the prophets I seldom didn't put it in one must have a Buddha. We asked you to do that. How can I do something the Prophet did not do? He says are they alone? I know I had a different opinion had Shara Allahu somebody until Allah opened my heart to accept what they said that I didn't believe I should.

00:08:58--> 00:09:08

But when they all agree, it is evidence to us as if it is the word of Allah and the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim in its evidentiary basis for our Deen

00:09:11--> 00:09:16

How come you don't know which Sahaba were dark skinned other than beloved your loved one?

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

Why don't you know

00:09:20--> 00:09:45

Yanni did we need to wait this long for somebody to tell us? Why don't Muslims care much about this issue? Why was in a point of fact that you would have any man stand on hold with a Juma and say I want you to know Yeah, a by the law that I'm married me Yasser radi Allahu anhu was a toll door black man. Why don't you hear?

00:09:48--> 00:09:54

Why don't you hear that about? LC Fadi radi Allahu anhu was a dark skinned man.

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

Many of our daughters they have

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

The name sumaiya when your loved one, the first Shahid, shahida, in an Islam, but nobody makes point of this, you don't look at your baby and say, oh, Mashallah, she's very dark, we're going to give her the name sumaiya. Because sumaiya was very dark. So we want to keep this tradition. Why don't we have this is Muslim, because the prophets, a lot of us send them the pre text of our faith is built on certain, certain principles. So this is the second point that I want to begin with. The love we have for the Sahaba is the point of al Qaeda. The respect we have for the Sahaba is a point of belief. As a point of this belief, we have a particular way, and a set of principles of how we view

00:10:45--> 00:10:45

them.

00:10:46--> 00:10:58

Did any of the Sahaba make mistakes or the alohar? And so habitate? What did I just say? Oh, no, the Allahu. And so when I say VLAN, what do you say? Are the aloha aina?

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

karate Allah? What do you mean by all the Aloma is it?

00:11:05--> 00:11:30

No, it's reminding yourself of how beautiful this man was. You're not the one who invented this word. It's Allah Who says in the Quran, or the Allahu unknown, Ron, so you're repeating a section of the verse of the Quran that establishes the supremacy of the Sahaba above all other generations. Prophet sallallahu wasallam said hi you

00:11:31--> 00:12:04

the best generation of all humanity, like I want you to think those who were with Moosa were not like those with Mohammed Salah hottie Listen, those who turned away from New and those who accepted No, we're not like those who accepted Mohammed Salah lahardee Watson, those who accepted from he said, however, he will not like those who accepted from Mohammed salah and he was sending the Sahaba after the prophets of Allah, this is your belief. This is your Arpita after all of the prophets of Allah, those we know and those we don't know.

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

After all of the prophets and messengers, there is no better man than a bobak about the Allahu Allah.

00:12:16--> 00:12:18

This is your EMA and in Allah it's a part of your faith.

00:12:22--> 00:13:08

He has the hydrea because he was the best of friends to Mohammed Salah he was saying he was a person that people would mistake between him and also last element they haven't met the two when the Prophet size element Abu Bakr, they had first arrived in combat, the people walked in from a distance are all clamoring to see which one is he so they see these two people who are strangers at first because Abu Bakr radi Allahu looked older the prophets I seldom had Shabbat Mashallah even at the age of 63 only Mashallah, I've exceeded him already and I'm in my 40s only 1318 depending on require 21 hairs white hairs in his head and his beard some a lot of a sudden, I bobak Captain

00:13:08--> 00:13:19

Mickey a big beard what white? So the software might be Oh, it has to be the one with the big white beard, the old wise man until the saw a vulva or the Allah I know.

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

For me this stand up, take his cloak off, and put it stand above the prophets I send them to shade him.

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

This was Abu Bakr

00:13:33--> 00:13:46

the Beloved of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam through he is the Beloved of the oma because he is the Beloved of Allah. So now you have this context karate Allahu anhu it's not you're saying Oh Allah be pleased with him. Allah is already pleased.

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

Allah loves Abu Bakr, radi Allahu Allah.

00:13:58--> 00:14:07

Your joy is that you can be associated with a sleeve that you can take on some of his character. This is the leader of the valley

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

a lot love the land a lot more.

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

What's the difference between the two?

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

Is it their skin?

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

Or is it there are men

00:14:24--> 00:14:50

who is greater in mere pneus of worshiping completion in their relationship with a lot both of them are the elite. But who is better in their relationship with Allah Ababa. So we put abubaker before might not just be learn about workers before armor and armor is before us, man. And this man is before I leave even in some of the books of athlete that there's disparity is it off manually? You're under your oath man.

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

But we have a classification. There more how jurien are before the unsolved

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

Early mohandro, the earlier of faith and aspects of Islam would be the one who would lead the Select compared to one who came to Islam A day later, an hour later,

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

because he believed in the Navy, so I said

00:15:14--> 00:15:23

he had an hour longer with Rasulullah sallallahu. I didn't listen, I'll see them. Now, none of the al Qaeda has the issue of color.

00:15:26--> 00:15:32

There's no issue of color in the taqwa except on terms of piety.

00:15:33--> 00:15:39

Now, this is a necessary long introduction to speak to you about the Sahaba of color.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

We find ourselves in a time today

00:15:44--> 00:16:14

where because we have strayed from the guidance of the Navy or Salalah. Or you are sending to such a degree that even within our community, my interest is not to speak about Black Lives Matter or political issues. My issue is, you have to call What do you believe? Why do you believe? What is your message of life? What's your system of life? How do you see the other brother the other sister who is in your confines? Who's in our messaging? Who's in our drama, even if you look amongst you now?

00:16:16--> 00:16:32

You see amongst us those who are from North Africa, those from East Africa, those from South Africa? Mashallah lots from South Africa. A lot of Alcala, you see those who have, you know, julu from an hinden in Gujarat, and those who are out of the nest.

00:16:34--> 00:17:11

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he would hear people speaking about lineage, he would see that Oh Ha, leave it in the hand Latina, it is a stench, this way of thinking it is a filthy stench that all have good lukumi Adam Don't you know you all belong belong to Adam, you're all back to him in the in the end. That sums our our freedom. So let us begin in sha Allah by speaking of the principles that are related to our fathers, we begin telling you some of the important issues of these wonderful,

00:17:12--> 00:17:15

especially wonderful, so have a profit mindset.

00:17:16--> 00:17:42

First, first principle that that really teaches is that there is no moral value attached to the color of someone's skin. There's no moral value. That is a result of whether you are lighting color or dark in color. no increase in morality, no decrease in morality, there is no betterment or lesser degree on account of physical makeup.

00:17:44--> 00:17:57

Carla Rasulullah sallallahu I do send them Hadith and Livia Allah will email Muslim, Lima Muslim, he reports that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Allah Allah young guru in a Surah kumala illa.

00:17:58--> 00:18:24

Allah does not make note of your physical makeup or the structures of your body, when it can young little enough pulumi Kumar Malika, what a law makes note of what Allah looks into is the depth of your heart, the sincerity and faithfulness in it, and the actions that stem from it. And that's where we get the statement of the prophets, I send them in the mail and Adam Binya

00:18:25--> 00:18:30

Your heart is the criterion that is the balance of your life.

00:18:32--> 00:18:44

There is however, in the sooner there is, in our belief, there is in the statements of the profits, a lot of you are selling them, something to be said about the qualities of someone's face,

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

and the light that shines from it.

00:18:49--> 00:19:11

Some people they have a radiant light. Benyus, or in some Hana light, actually interesting when you see how people make mistakes with translation. If you visit Italy, and you visit some of their museums, there's a statue there that was built by Michelangelo, you know, he was a sculpture right?

00:19:12--> 00:19:28

And Michelangelo, one of the statues he made was a Moosa, what he ascribes to be the look of Moses. So he has this man, and he has coming out of Moosa, two horns, corn, two horns.

00:19:30--> 00:19:55

Why do they have corn? Why is that in their tradition, because when the Bible was translated, the word cotton is also a Semitic word. It's in the Hebrew texts, right cotton. So they said that Moosa had carbon in their language, Moses had carbon, which when you translate it, even Arabic It means horn, but the word also means in their language light.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

So when they translated it to Latin, they wrote that

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

Moses had two horns instead of Moses had two rays of light. Can you believe it? You don't believe me check on Google has chef mobile

00:20:09--> 00:20:27

take a look at the picture since of Han Allah and that's why when the Yahoo you know when they came to the properties and then they said Where's aluna and Ville coronae they ask you about the one of two horns, right? two areas. This was a regular theme in their theology in their belief.

00:20:29--> 00:20:42

As a part of our tradition, we believe there is a knob Dora field wedge. One of the biggest problems you find in Miss translations of the Quran is where Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:20:43--> 00:20:59

yo, meta beyondblue would you wet a sweat too? Would you on the day and wrongly translated in error in translation on the day faces will be turned white, and other faces will be turned?

00:21:00--> 00:21:16

What do you think it says, black in many of the older translations, what the translation should mean, what the context is, on the day, some faces will become radiant with light, and other faces will become darkened with a lot of anger.

00:21:19--> 00:21:20

It's not white and black.

00:21:23--> 00:21:39

And you and I, initially when I was telling you the story of Bill cotinine What were you saying, Oh, look at these people. SubhanAllah Look, look, look how they translate looks upon the law, how they fell away from the path. But see how it is important for us to return to the US.

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

When you look into the Quran, the Quran is not what somebody understood of it and translated the Quran is what for an harrowby the essence of the word of Allah subhana wa Taala has to be what a lot spoke not what people understood from it in a given point in time.

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

So Allah speaks about the brightness of faith, not the whiteness of faith, and lots of how to subhana wa tada speaks about the darkening of faith, not the blackening of faith. You see this as being a clear misunderstanding. When you hear Allah Subhana Allah saying the Quran were either Bushido

00:22:22--> 00:22:55

when one of them is given Bushra that they have been given the birth of a daughter of one nowhere who must sweat them, their face becomes falsely translated Black doesn't become black, he's still the same color. When it is his face becomes angry, dark, depressed sorrow. At times, you will see someone say what's wrong with you, if you're you Look, you've The color is changed in your face up, you've darkened in your in your in your attitude, you look kaeleen Something is wrong, what's happened.

00:22:56--> 00:23:00

It's not that the team or the shade of the individual has done.

00:23:02--> 00:23:22

These are issues of faith, but issues of understanding of our tradition, and our books. Because you will have people they will come and say to you look Muslims, man, even in your books, you talk about white face, black face, say no. This is a person's misunderstanding of the word of Allah. And the tsunami, the Navy, Mohammed Salalah. It was

00:23:23--> 00:23:44

one of the bigger issues that also is important for us to make as an us Sorry, I'm apologize for the longer introduction is to speak because this is the heart of the issue. This is what we need to hear right? is about racism. If you ask the average person, not Muslim or any any prayer, what is the word racism mean?

00:23:45--> 00:24:31

It's when you treat somebody not right. You look at somebody, but racism actually has a very particular definitions and the definitions are changing. It's definitely changing from just an attitude or an intention that somebody has. So one of the better definitions is racism is a belief that a group of people who possess will possess different behavior on account of how they look, that if you look at them, and you say, Ah, this one they steal. Why? Because you looked at them the way they look the color of their skin that you immediately in your mind, you assume that their behavior is because of their color. I do this with my students sometimes at at Lankford Islamic college. So I

00:24:31--> 00:24:49

was speaking about racism in this term. And I said to them, are Japanese people good with math? What do you think? What do you think? Are Asians better with math? Or yummy? Most of the kids are like, Yeah, man, Japanese, they're very smart.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

See, racism works when people assume good things about you, right? If you're jumping in you say well Shall I get d in math, but I'm Japanese. There's students and not

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

All Japanese people because they eat fish one one boy, he said to me, she said because they eat fish fish is good for your brain. I said Mashallah.

00:25:08--> 00:25:21

It has nothing to do with the education system in Japan that is built on introducing, you know, our way of thinking and numbers. It doesn't have anything to do. Oh, no, Chinese are very good with math.

00:25:22--> 00:25:26

Oh, he all ages. Mashallah. Is it really not?

00:25:27--> 00:25:35

When you look at a person's physical makeup and decide their behavior is resultant of it, it's racing.

00:25:38--> 00:25:55

That's the first understanding. The second understanding of course, is, but what about the patterns that emerge? You might say, Whoa, hold on, hold on, hold on. We see in this place that a lot of people will have this Yani they have. So

00:25:56--> 00:26:08

is it the pattern has emerged because of what they were born with, with skin color? Or are there other institutional reasons for them to be this way?

00:26:10--> 00:26:17

What structures of governess what opportunities have been provided? Let me give you an example.

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

If your son

00:26:21--> 00:26:22

is born,

00:26:24--> 00:26:27

in September, October, November,

00:26:29--> 00:26:43

if your son is born September, October, November, they are 90% more likely to play in a professional team, as an elite athlete than if they were born in any other month in the year. He said, Oh, man, I wish I missed him by one month.

00:26:45--> 00:27:06

panela my boy, he could have been a star. Why is it 90%? And 86%? Do you know why? Because the cut off date for registering your child. Most of these leagues, they have a date. They say when you come to me a language that I need my son to be in Kenya, I say when we say born, you say oh 19 I said no, no, no, no. What money

00:27:08--> 00:27:53

so if your son cut off for us at the school, June, if your son is born in July, you miss out and you are brothers, they get so upset. See, chef is just what three days chef, I say I'm sorry. But what that does is it makes your son more advanced than all the other children in their class, because they were able to grow for one whole year. So when they come to kindy they look like Mashallah they're in year one. Your boy is coordinated his math and you see so can ally have Einstein in my family has nothing to do with Einstein, is that your son had one full year of development that the others didn't institutions, determine patterns.

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

And at times, we forget this.

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

And therefore it becomes very important for the prophets I send them to remind these oma of those who are left behind with institutions I always used to, in my heart, I always wondered about this, the prophets I send them would say, and that a woman named Julio, Jenna where Mary forgot fukada slicer, I will be the first one to enter Jenna and with me will be the pool of the owner. Pamela, none of us are poor. You might think on my show I

00:28:32--> 00:28:39

Oh, shed where you know, I lost my job last year you are not classified as poor as the profit meant in that in that instance?

00:28:41--> 00:28:49

Yeah, me What? Yeah. So where do I go? Where do you go? Yeah. The Prophet says I will be the first enter and the ones who will enter with me are

00:28:50--> 00:29:30

some of the licen because there's institutions that kept him in this place. It didn't matter what you do. It's the other of a law that they they had a determinant that is beyond their control. Things happened that they are not accountable for. Therefore when you hear these Hadith of the prophets of the Lord, he was in a woman may Allah protect their wives, daughters, all of the women of the home of the prophets, I send them in the women of humanity, who used to give herself for you know, for profit. She used to give herself away. Profits is lm says that a woman who used to do this act, she enters Jenna because she gave water to a dog

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

with the Prophet mean symbol I send them is that the way society was in her time, and the difficulties in the debilitation that kept her from having the life you and I have if she asked me one of the if she was given the opportunity you had, she would have exceeded you. But she had institutions that kept her below what you allow her I knew I had institutions that enslave them Mr.

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

enslave them, and therefore the context of the Quran comes to save them. Could you imagine if you are unmounted me as

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

your mother is sumaiya the Allahu anhu. He was born in Africa in Ethiopia.

00:30:15--> 00:30:20

She never had a right to her own person, her own self, or the loved one how

00:30:22--> 00:30:30

she's brought into a society where the institutions have made her a slave. Finally,

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

she becomes a moaner.

00:30:33--> 00:30:40

She gets enough freedom that she's not a slave, but she is aligned to a clan who freed her.

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

But she's still their servant.

00:30:44--> 00:30:58

You have nowhere to go, where are you gonna go? If you leave out of this area, people will see you take you back in slavery. So she remains in that society serving and running after their animals and so on in subjugation.

00:31:00--> 00:31:01

Her husband, yes,

00:31:03--> 00:31:03

about the law

00:31:06--> 00:31:20

because he has chosen her in marriage and because he was previously subjugated, they are blessed with Mr. gela who Allah reveals for an because of the institutions that wanted to turn them away from above.

00:31:21--> 00:31:24

And once their Islam is discovered,

00:31:26--> 00:31:47

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walks by them unable due to the institutions and tyranny of the day, he looks at them in the punishment that they are receiving because they said Rob do a lot when Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So he looks to them and he says sub Baron earlier

00:31:48--> 00:31:56

a family of yourself be patient in Mr. radiocommunication, the next time I need you is in general. So Lola

00:31:58--> 00:32:16

he lets them know their time. So the lies I won't see you again industry. So the patient for what you will endure amount with your loved one who is made to witnesses mother tortured to death, his father abused to death.

00:32:17--> 00:32:30

And Amar is told if you are to save your father to save your mother say the disgusting word of urban, urban is the Hubble is the most high not Allah, not Allahu Akbar

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

umodel the Allahu anhu he says it seeking to save his family, seeking to help them they nevertheless end their life. So a lot of reveals in the Quran, in the woman called Cuckoo Cuckoo.

00:32:51--> 00:32:59

When a man said these words and they released him they laughed and mocked him. Oh, you said it kill them anyway. killed his mother anyway.

00:33:02--> 00:33:03

Line a MOBA

00:33:04--> 00:33:10

Amar. He turns his face he runs How can I meet Mohammed Salah la he was.

00:33:12--> 00:33:22

So last sentence our air to God that were believed Illa can boo boo in number Emma and except the one who in his heart I know was faith, or the Allahu anhu. And

00:33:25--> 00:33:27

the institutions of the time.

00:33:28--> 00:33:48

We're not just simply people looked at them and gave them a word or a little bit of prejudice. It was a tyranny that subjugated. So when you understand the word of the prophets of Allah, you ascend them you begin to understand, and a widow and yet the hooded gentleman will marry. For

00:33:50--> 00:34:00

those who were fully of meaning they had nothing to do for themselves. They relied upon others to give them assistance, they relied upon Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:34:01--> 00:34:47

So that time does not run out from us. Let's mention some of the glorious names. And a little bit about the history of some of these wonderful so have and there's an exhaustive list. But before them, I thought to point out that some of the great prophets of Allah, the greatest messengers of Allah, some of them those who are mentioned to us in the Quran, were described by the prophet sallallahu wasallam as being of dark skin color of black skin color, can he will love the one whom Allah would speak to directly without a barrier moves on? He said, I'm the Prophet so I tell them said as to who I saw him on the day of Allah, wa Julian, he is a man who is not to lead to one tall

00:34:47--> 00:34:58

tall. Yeah, he thought he was tall, but moves up to one double tall and Amelia Luca. He is very dark in color.

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

And he is

00:35:02--> 00:35:04

the one who was spoken to by Allah.

00:35:06--> 00:35:23

And as we said that this is not a quality that we say in praise, but it is a description as described by our Navy, Mohammed Salahuddin. How do the Arabs describe a black man? They call him Adam.

00:35:25--> 00:35:27

So what do you describe Adam as being?

00:35:31--> 00:35:41

The very word Adam comes from a demon out of the darkest depths of the earth, the blackest of the mud of the earth, of Adam and Eve.

00:35:42--> 00:35:57

And therefore, when the prophets of Allah, send them says, couldn't accumulate them, all of you go back to Adam, it's the prophets, I send them saying, All of you go back to the earth, what are the mean, to rob from the dust and the collection of the dust of this earth?

00:35:58--> 00:36:33

Without the Allahu anhu believe Nevada, was a person whose nessip, although his ancestry was that of habashi, but his father was an OB. And I want this to be something that you kind of think about. Most of the time when we speak about being NVC, Ethiopian, I want you to understand that this is actually offensive to a lot of our dark skinned brothers and sisters, who see that there's an internal racism at times in the context that we even speak about the land that you're describing him, not to his birth father, we know it knew who

00:36:34--> 00:36:37

who's his father, robot for the law.

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

The law did not obey the law. And his father was a man who was an Arabic man, his mother was from Ethiopian origin.

00:36:47--> 00:37:17

And that becomes very important because within Arabic tradition, your next step is to your who your father. So Beloved, although he has mentioned as a habit, he This was meant as something to elevate the level of the Allahu anhu spirit to elevate within us the capacity that we are not judges of just who your father was, what your ancestry was, whether your mother was enslaved or not, but you have a great calling, and the name and habit she was described to be lad after the first seizure.

00:37:19--> 00:37:20

Where was the first agent or two?

00:37:21--> 00:37:28

Who did they go to? And have a shot? The people who saved the Muslims from who gala?

00:37:29--> 00:38:02

And it was just insane. Yeah. Yeah, honey, you are from a people whose hearts are open, your kingdom, Najafi la la, you la Miranda, Miranda who I had, the one who governs the institutions there are not like the ones here. And therefore it was said as an honor not because of the darkness of his skin, but so that it would be shown that the light of truth can be found in all regions of the world that if it escapes us here in Mecca, it is found with the people of habitat. In fact, there were two he Java

00:38:03--> 00:38:09

to inhabit before the Hadith of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Larsson. Where was the first Majid built

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

with it in Medina, in Houma, la

00:38:17--> 00:38:39

the first message was built by the Sahaba were in Africa, the first place, the Sahaba, said, Look, we've been given land we're going to dedicate a place for our son to come, we're not going to pray up in the hills in the mountains under trees, we're going to dedicate the place of Riba, the very first men's Jew that was consecrated not by the president, but by his companions within a habit.

00:38:41--> 00:39:03

So therefore writes really big al al habersham. Now, it's not the level so it is not the one who's dark in color. It's beloved, the one who comes from these people who loved us, the way you have this statement where you say, Are you Ben? Ansari, the way you say Sandman

00:39:05--> 00:39:15

and fantasy with the good of Ferris, Sandman and fantasy. It's not because his ancestors were Zoroastrian he saved Mashallah his fantasy now.

00:39:17--> 00:39:33

It's because the good that he became the governor of these people. He was then destined to be a person who was given the governess under the leadership of Mr. mahapatra, the Allahu Akbar as one of their natives

00:39:34--> 00:39:55

and therefore begin to think with a colorblind perspective. I will never use I sent him was colorblind. I don't mean physically. I mean that the person he saw in front of them, he did not see color, who was the woman, some of the law and he was setting them who used to feed the prophets. I send them when his mother was unable to feed him who is the only woman

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

to suckle to breastfeed or Rasulullah. So I send them other than

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

Mother, anyone know her name?

00:40:03--> 00:40:10

Huh? Halima where she from? What was what? What's her ancestry from?

00:40:11--> 00:40:17

She was a dark skinned woman, one of the Sahaba that you and I their ancestry stretches back to

00:40:19--> 00:40:36

the place of Africa. And therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this person who loved him that he when he would see or he would say, oh man, you are like my mother, not only Omar, you are like my mother Salalah Are you a settler, more of the Allahu Anna Sahaba t admony.

00:40:37--> 00:40:42

Ma Iman. Baraka Allah, Allah

00:40:43--> 00:41:23

was around the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam from his birth until his death and she was the closest example to the prophets of Allah He was send them along with Halima Sadie. After his own mother's death. He was like her child. Oh, my memory along Rhonda was also what a woman of dark complexion, a black skinned woman, whose ancestry with that of Ethiopia and Habesha, she was so loved by the prophets, I send them that if she were to enter, he would get up so she would sit where he was sitting. So like I said, he would take the pillow the chair from under him and give it to her to sit and he would sit on the ground. So a lot of us one of the a lot more on how to get married.

00:41:24--> 00:41:32

Her son, a woman, she's referred to as own Amen, her son, amen. If you're away from the Allahu Allahu Allah

00:41:33--> 00:42:01

is also the half brother, who Sam that means a woman. She was given by the prophets I seldom he recommended for her. He said to the Sahaba he said the one who wishes to marry a woman from Jenna, he should marry him. Amen. Zenaida Sula, I want to be Mashallah she'll pull me along. My wife pulls us anyway. Yeah, you know how it is right brothers, pull you shopping pulls you here your wife pulls you two gentlemen, this is a great miracle from Allah Subhana. with Adam.

00:42:02--> 00:42:17

From this blessing union was husana. Zaid in Omaha even if Nevada law, the law, no law, notice the women around the property so I say lemon is very early days. Their names were descriptions of their character.

00:42:18--> 00:42:39

Halima the one of mercy. Bala cat, the one of blessing. Amina is mother Salalah. It was like he was suddenly the one who is secure. Right? Even from his childhood, a lot surrounded him by blessing and mercy and love and security. So Lola, it was it

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

was mF museo.

00:42:43--> 00:42:44

Okay,

00:42:46--> 00:42:57

I am made up of eight or the last line whom were all of those who would be described today as people of black complexion, dark complexion. And nahida.

00:42:58--> 00:43:30

nahida is a name that's famous nahida is in description of one of the early converts on Islam. She was a woman who was a slave, she would be beaten and tortured and abused on account of her he man, she had a daughter named lubaina. She was a also a captive due to the tyranny and the institutions of the time she was also a dark complexion, early believers early margerine early of those who believed in the Navy as a law it was and

00:43:33--> 00:43:40

these are some of the prominent and I wanted to include a lot of the women more than the men

00:43:41--> 00:44:00

and I will end with some of the men and then I will give eight points of quick clarity for you and I to establish a who were amongst us and amongst each other that is colorblind as was established by our Navy Mohammed Salah lava to use. We spoke about unmodded me so the Allahu Allah.

00:44:01--> 00:44:04

And I just wanted to end by speaking about every

00:44:06--> 00:44:09

other week it was an Arabic man of dark complexion.

00:44:10--> 00:44:23

And he was what we would refer to today as a black man of the law 101 a celebrity as many but one of the reasons that I want to speak about it is because there was a famous incident that occurred

00:44:24--> 00:44:28

between the Allahu anhu and Bella lipner robber.

00:44:29--> 00:44:46

And on one occasion above Oprah had given opinion. Now I want you to remember the prophets I said Lim said to above are the Allahu anhu the Prophet love. If there is three people and you are one of the three and they're trying to choose someone to be an amoeba Don't be the Amir.

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

Not because a brother or their loved one who is poor in his class, or that he is a person who is doesn't have a mind, not because he's not good with money.

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

But because the prophets of the Lord he was in love knows that God alone I know at times is quick to template. He's quick.

00:45:08--> 00:45:13

So the prophet Isaiah and when you're a leader, sometimes you have to be the one who comes down not.

00:45:15--> 00:45:37

So the prophets I seldom said if it's only three of you, and the two of them say you beat them, you say no, that will suit them said no. The Prophet actually said to him, yeah, you are going to live alone and die alone and be resurrected alone. And then to gender alone. rhodiola and one other rhodiola one, the Sahaba th money.

00:45:39--> 00:45:49

He took the words of the prophets, I send them as advice, he began to be careful because he knew that if he's with other people, he's quick to anger He will make a mistake that might ruin his dunya and alcohol.

00:45:51--> 00:45:53

So I borrowed the Allahu anhu

00:45:55--> 00:45:57

he gave an opinion.

00:45:59--> 00:46:00

And Bilal

00:46:01--> 00:46:07

gave a different opinion to his. So he turned to me he said, haha, and even you

00:46:09--> 00:46:15

Yagna soda, you, oh, son of a black woman. Now who is also black,

00:46:17--> 00:46:18

who is also a mother?

00:46:20--> 00:46:23

Because I want you to understand the context. So

00:46:28--> 00:46:34

when he said this, beloved, the Allahu anhu didn't respond and say what? No, you are also.

00:46:36--> 00:46:38

How dare you say this to me.

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

He took it inside themselves, one of the I had in our studio, and he turned to the prophets of

00:46:47--> 00:46:52

the Prophet when he heard that he got up from where he was left, and came to Abu Bakr,

00:46:53--> 00:46:54

radi Allahu Allah.

00:46:56--> 00:47:11

And he said, Our cut to her, did you have this statement? You had the courage the audacity to say this to bill on our path pulita How dare you speak this word

00:47:14--> 00:47:20

about the Allahu anhu came to be learned and put his face on the ground.

00:47:21--> 00:47:27

And he said to him, if you take it back from me stepped on my face, for I brought you

00:47:29--> 00:47:32

I abused you in this capacity.

00:47:33--> 00:47:36

As I used to be abused as others abused me.

00:47:37--> 00:47:47

I abused you in this sinful way. Lower me as I tried to lower you in Word, Stefan me, humiliate me as I've humiliated you.

00:47:48--> 00:48:01

And beloved Yamaha and who picked him up off the ground and hugged him and spoke of his valor and spoke of his blessing and spoke of his forgiveness for him and partying him of this mistake.

00:48:02--> 00:48:10

Why do I share this particular story with you? There's this mistaken concept that people who are from the same place cannot be racist to each other.

00:48:11--> 00:48:16

People who look the same Oh, no, no, no, no, we're just joking. We're, I'm from the same place.

00:48:17--> 00:48:19

I'm from the same place. And I must remember must be

00:48:21--> 00:48:24

and a Bengali woman, Guyana, Somalia, who

00:48:25--> 00:48:27

knows and we know each other. Now,

00:48:29--> 00:48:42

in these things, sometimes you might think it's a joke, but at times, it is something that injures the heart and if you are accepting of people maybe to say to you, others may not be accepting for it to be said to them.

00:48:45--> 00:48:58

I want to end in sha Allah with a constitution of life taken from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in the adjustment of attitudes in building a hobo with each other.

00:48:59--> 00:49:55

One of the things that I want you to know is that you are to be confident in who you are. There's no problem to say and I added ebrahimian muscle in Kennedy through strongly right, I'm the son of Adam, son of a Brahim whose heritage is Egyptian who was born in Canada must go to Roxy Kennedy. But now in Moulton Australia will be nica a turkey and by marriage Turkish Mashallah citizenship and all right. No problem. What might have gotten Malaysia and from my love Malaysia Mashallah, right? There's nothing wrong to have confidence but not pride. So to be a person who says and Deobandi and as a heading, and Pharisees, salmonella, Pharisees so high eval, Rumi, right Zinnia or Romania. De

00:49:55--> 00:50:00

Niro was a Roman captive or the Allahu is one of the

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

Have the profits on the law to sell them? There is no problem in you being confident.

00:50:06--> 00:50:08

Pakistan zindabad, right, is that you say?

00:50:10--> 00:50:40

There is no problem that you have an honor to your heritage and your tradition as long as it is not false pride. What is it? What is false pride, randomness that you look down on the one who isn't from where you are, where's what you wear has what you have educated as you're educated, colored is your color, humbleness. wapato will help and to reject truth to be a person who said no, no, no, no. Who are you to tell me? How old are you?

00:50:42--> 00:50:43

Where are you from? Where are you?

00:50:45--> 00:50:45

Now,

00:50:46--> 00:51:15

London as well and bottle will have to reject truth because you looked at the person who said no, no, I'm not going to listen to what they have to say just by the look to judge the book by its cover. But to be confident in who you are. And that's why you don't find it. Strange that in all of the books of origin of the science of Hadith, it tells you where they are what they're from, what they look like. Where was the moment Buhari from

00:51:16--> 00:51:35

which city? Mahara? Why do you know? Why is his name not just Mohammed Agnes marine? Why is it an Buhari? Why do you Normans? mojari? Is it because Bukhara is so Mashallah the seat of Eman and Taka la it's because this is his place. No, no problem with that

00:51:36--> 00:52:20

number to acknowledge each other always and handle I was reading something one of the brothers he sent me a link to a Facebook post. There was an Aboriginal brother who wrote on one of the Facebook sites, Muslims in Perth. He said I came to a Masjid I come regularly to pray in the masjid. The Imam never gives me Santa. I think it's because I'm Aboriginal yummy. This is the whole the summary of what he said. In his heart. He felt set in his heart he took it that the Imam is not saying Salaam to so Panama there's hundreds of people, but sometimes people take it personal. So what does the prophets I send them say when people ask him how do we get in Jenna? He says f Xu said Mr. Enoch

00:52:21--> 00:52:44

spreads them everywhere you go. So Pamela Well, I hate this habit amongst the sisters in particular. I know their sisters listening. They walk by each other and carousel in the shopping center. One sister and her job coming this way. And your sister kept going this way. And just as they're going across they look ahead the other window no this one doesn't say that. This one doesn't say so now.

00:52:46--> 00:53:12

It is a habit that you find amongst brothers and among sisters. The prophets I send them said letter homosassa had a huge Ls salaamu hospital they have gentlemen will not arrive until the Salaam interchanges hospital because you know the person. Yeah, I mean, it's only because I know you. If we don't have any business family friendship. vested, right? There's no setup. It's just from us. That's it.

00:53:14--> 00:53:48

Number three, don't generalize. Not all Japanese people are good with mine. Right? Don't generalize, don't stereotype. What is the one thing you and I as Muslims we hate when people do Muslims are terrorists Muslims are if you look at certain way if you dress a certain way, Pamela, but we do it at times within our own community. Some of the most racist people that I know are Muslim. Well, I have one sister, may Allah Subhana Allah give her comfort. Her name is hella hot. She is my mother. She was my mother's best friend, Pakistani sister, Michelle.

00:53:49--> 00:54:02

And, you know, biryani, and we send food they send food we were named, grew up with her sons and daughters. One of her daughters actually has moved to Perth as well. So Pamela, and this sister for hat zella hair.

00:54:04--> 00:54:07

One of her daughters was coming to get you know, somebody proposed.

00:54:08--> 00:54:11

And the man is a good man. Everybody.

00:54:13--> 00:54:14

But she's the mother says no.

00:54:18--> 00:54:29

And they said, Jeff, can you talk to me? I know that. Like she's like my mind. Talk to her. She can you talk to her? ask her why. So she says to me, I'm on a call with her. She says to me, you know, yeah.

00:54:31--> 00:54:33

Some of us we like cappuccino.

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

Others like latte.

00:54:37--> 00:54:40

I say what's this woman talking about cappuccino latte?

00:54:42--> 00:54:46

She said you know cappuccino is not a lot of milk.

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

I don't get it. I don't understand. What do you mean lots of milking? I go What do you mean? She goes, don't you understand? I thought you were smart. I say well, I explained it to me how

00:55:01--> 00:55:22

She was yummy. You know dark chocolate very dark milk chocolate. It's like I said I stopped for a while the Hydra. I can't talk to you right now. I have to go. I couldn't I know what to say. This is a woman I love I respect Panama. What am I gonna say? Well, I was gonna lose my patient talking to me about cappuccino.

00:55:23--> 00:55:27

Hot Chocolate this weekend in Panama. What's it What is this?

00:55:30--> 00:55:32

I was shocked. I call her back.

00:55:34--> 00:55:34

And I

00:55:36--> 00:55:38

tell a lie. This is how long

00:55:40--> 00:55:40

Pamela

00:55:42--> 00:55:57

so Pamela, her heart changes. This young man Mashallah beautiful man. I don't know they're watching. He accepts is he you know, he's accepted. They get married the other over law.

00:55:59--> 00:56:05

And that, you know, the father has passed away. And the mother is scared to live on their own.

00:56:06--> 00:56:12

Which of her daughters husbands is the first to volunteer? Mr. Hot Chocolate?

00:56:13--> 00:56:21

Who has she been living with for the last seven, eight years? Who took her to hide? Who took her holidays? Who took
