hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala who created the jinn and INTZ and gave them the cycle of death and life. He told the angels to trust his wisdom, when they questioned him regarding mankind's wars and strife, through His command of Kuhn to all of us come into existence, and it is his will that creates and makes all that is in the heavens and earth is his, To Him belongs what is given and what he takes. None has the right to question his actions nor challenge his wisdom, for all that occurs is in accordance with his decree, and a perfect system. So Allah's father is always in effect, none can cause an intervention, and upon us is to humble ourselves in

00:03:37--> 00:04:08

acceptance and submission. The heart is permitted to desire and to grieve, and we may rejoice and we may yearn, but in the end, we must say to Allah, we belong and to Him, we shall return as to what follows Dear Brothers and Sisters, when those whom you know, get a phone call, or a text message, that you have died. What is the first memory that your friends and family will have of you?

00:04:09--> 00:04:57

When the news of your debt spreads amongst the people, when the news of your death spreads amongst the people? How many people will be impacted by your death? How many people will get a text message and a phone call? When the people hear of your demise? What will be the quantity of people who will genuinely grieve that you have left this world? When your name is mentioned as no longer having been here? And people say I was just with him yesterday last week, May Allah forgive him. May Allah have mercy. When they say those phrases. Are they merely phrases uttered by the tongue? Or are they will they be actual Diaz that are emanating from the depths of the soul? What will be the quality of is

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

still far that your own family and

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

Friends, your acquaintances and relatives will make for you when you have gone. Dear Brothers and Sisters, these are the questions we need to be thinking about from now. And even more scary than that when you leave this world. Will there be people who because of your own actions because of your own issues with them your own cheating or stealing or grieving or hurting them? Will there be people that might iStockphoto Allah actually be secretly rejoicing that hamdulillah Good riddance, he is gone.

00:05:31--> 00:06:21

These are the questions that we should think about now, when we have the time to impact these answers. Brothers and sisters, our father Ibrahim alayhis, Salam made dua to Allah. Allah be heavily hookman will help enable Salah in which I Lili son acidity and fill it in, Oh Allah, grant me wisdom, make me amongst the pious and grant me a reputation of honor amongst later generations. Let the later people respect and honor me, let me leave a legacy that will be so bright that millions named billions of people will remember me and make his still far from me and ask Allah to bless me and his dua was granted because no human being is more respected quantity wise than our father,

00:06:21--> 00:07:06

Ibrahim alayhis salam. So to want a positive legacy to want to leave a legacy that others remember, in and of itself. This is an Islamic goal, it is what every one of us should be striving for. Therefore, in today's hutzpah, I want to give seven pointers about how to maximize our legacy so that when insha Allah to either we leave this world, and everyone will leave this world when those text messages are given with your name on it, when the phone calls come, and so and so has passed away, and that so and so is You we want to maximize the impact of that legacy. So that dua has come from the heart. So that is still far as given globally, so that your impact in life is truly felt

00:07:06--> 00:07:57

and appreciated in depth, and so that your sadhaka and your hours and your good deeds last much longer than your finite time on this earth. So here are seven pointers from the Quran and Sunnah about how to maximize our legacy that we leave in this life. First and foremost, all that we do, the ultimate blessings will come based upon our sincerity to Allah, every deed that you do, the proportionality of Baraka will come based upon how much is lost you had in your heart, whatever you do, must be done purely for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala not to please mankind not to boost your own ego not to create fame for yourself No, to please Allah and only Allah and history

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

bears witness to the reality of this. Imam Malik wrote his famous book almost.

00:08:05--> 00:08:48

And he was the first to compile a book of Hadith. And in his lifetime, it became a fad that so many scholars began writing more thoughts, different versions of the motto, their own versions, one of his students said, Oh, Imam Malik. Now what you wrote one book now there are so many dozens, what's going to happen? Imam Malik said, Mirka Anneli la Hui, baka, what was done for the sake of Allah shall last. And Allah showed that reality. Nobody even knows the names of the other scholars who wrote the underwater arts. Imam unknown, we wrote a famous book called Arbor Aina, where we do you know, brothers and sisters, more than 50 famous scholars in the history of the OMA have written out

00:08:48--> 00:09:35

of Bahrain, or the brain of science or the brain of so and so more than 50 books. But why is it though only one of them is so well known that when we say albarin, none of the other 50 names come to mind. It is insha Allah to either because of that level of sincerity, that level of loss that we do something and we do it only to please Allah subhanho wa taala. So point number one, purify internally before you begin externally, and Allah will bless you and give you a legacy. Point number two, discover your talent and your passion. Find out what you're good at, find out what is the main thing you can contribute? Because it doesn't have to be I'm giving you scholarly examples. But no,

00:09:35--> 00:10:00

you don't have to only contribute in academic Islam. No. People can contribute and leave a legacy and anything that is beneficial to mankind. As long as we have Eman and believe in Allah, anything that we benefit other people with shall be a legacy for us. It doesn't have to be academic Islam. This is a mistake. Whoever thinks the only legacy I can achieve is going to be by studying the deen no doubt studying

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

The dean is very good. But millions of people have left legacies, not because of academic Islam, because they impacted lives because they helped people because they taught somebody something useful, even because they might have created something or done some patent that made lives beneficial. And we firmly believe that any believer in Allah subhanho wa taala, who benefits others with sincerity, whoever he benefits, he shall get some of that budget as well. So you have to discover your talents, your passion, what are you good at? What can you do that perhaps other people cannot do? And that is something only you can answer. So point number two to create a legacy. Find

00:10:39--> 00:11:24

your niche, find what you're good at, and begin to master that. Point. Number three, once you know what you're good at, aim high and have the most grandiose visions. Don't short sell your own self and ambitions. No. Aim high as the saying goes, aim for the stars. Because even if you fail, at least you'll get to the moon, you aim for the highest of the high have the most ambitious goals you can possibly think of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when you ask Allah for Jana, ask him for a fair dose. Isla this hadith he didn't give to the elite of the Sahaba he didn't give to the point 1% Even though realistically less than point 1% are entering for those that are

00:11:24--> 00:12:05

realistically how many are going to enter for those such a small percentage. But when we make dua, we aim for fear those we ask Allah for for those why? Because even if we fail getting to those, if that was our goal, if we get into second tier Alhamdulillah. But if we aimed to be the very last person to enter agenda, well then if we fail that, where are we headed? So we aim the highest of the high and we have the most ambitious goals and we put our trust in Allah that inshallah who I'll be able to accomplish much I've given this anecdote many times when I was a student at the University of Medina, we're studying the books of Hadith. And my teacher, and the College of Edie, we came

00:12:05--> 00:12:45

across the Hadith, which is an Abu Dhabi in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that after every 100 years, Allah will send a people or groups of people who will revive the spirit of the deen ujet. Do they're going to make touch deeds of the deen, who's going to revive the deen bring back the energy and the vigor? Our teacher said to us? What is the question that you have when you read this hadith? We all said share. The question is who is the Majid of our times? Who is that person? Our chef said, right there, you have failed? Automatically you thought somebody else is going to be the Mujaddid? Why can't you aspire and say, Oh, Allah make me that Majid did, why did

00:12:45--> 00:13:22

you automatically pass the buck, just give up and say somebody else is going to do it aspire, try and then leave the rest to Allah subhanho wa taala. That's the point here, you aim to be the highest of the high to be the best in your field to be the most beneficial, obviously, for the sake of Allah. That's point number one, but you aim for the highest of the high because even if you fail, well then that failure is a success in the eyes of everybody else. So point number three, you aim the highest of the high and have the most grandiose visions. Point number four. Once you have your class, once you have a plan, once you have a vision, while then you can't just sit on your lazy

00:13:22--> 00:14:04

behind and do nothing. You're gonna have to work, you're gonna have to strive, you're gonna have to be engaged, you're gonna have to be active and you cannot give up and you cannot waste your time. You shall not establish a legacy by staying in your rooms and playing computer games all day. You shall not leave a legacy by watching Netflix dramas every single month that week that they come out. legacies are built by what you do by your actions. By getting involved by being in the trenches. You have to keep on trying and trying and trying and put in the effort before something is done. And again, every single successful person in human history attain that success because of the actions

00:14:04--> 00:14:44

that they have done. Your legacy is linked proportionally to your own actions. The more you put in, the more the potential for the legacy you have to have strong him strong desire and then make sure your actions backup to that desire. Our Prophet system would seek refuge and Allah from Elijah Z Wilkerson from giving up and being lazy, he would seek refuge in Allah from giving up and from being lazy. The believer doesn't give up. The believer is not lazy. The believer is dedicated to the max, there are so many anecdotes and again, brothers and sisters, the anecdotes I give you are from academic Islam. That's because that's my field. But understand if I were a businessman, I would give

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

you anecdotes from that field. It's the same concept that you have to do these things. The anecdote that comes to my mind when it comes to putting in the effort. Imam Malik Ibn Anas, the greatest scholar of Medina. He had 500 students on average, sometimes more than that.

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

1500 students would come and they would write the Moto from him. And once there was a carnival that came to town, and the carnival had all of the processions and, and the jugglers and the you know the clowns and it had a elephant in it. The people of Medina had never seen an elephant. The commotion is common, you can hear the tambourines, whatever. And so all of the students, their young men, obviously all of them say, oh, there's an elephant. They all go on site to watch the procession and the my mother lowers his head and starts reading in his book. He looks up 500 have gone one young man remains in the whole gathering. He says who are you? says I am yeah, here Ibn yeah here from

00:15:39--> 00:16:21

under us. I've come all the way from Underoos so he said Don't you want to go see the elephant all your colleagues have gone? He said, I have come from underdose to study with Imam Malik. And there's only one Imam Malik in the world. And there are plenty of elephants to go see it my mother said to you are Rajul Alka you're an intelligent man. And at this time, yeah, he had me I was unknown. 50 years down the line. Every single book of Moto go look at the title, the version of Yahia lengthy. This is the standard version of the motto, this young man who showed that dedication who sacrifice frivolously it's halal to go watch a procession to see the elephant. Nothing wrong with that little

00:16:21--> 00:16:56

bit. Number two entertainment is everybody does that. But let's be honest here. The more you exert yourself in your field, the more serious you are about your own output. Well Don't Don't be surprised your legacy will go to massive levels. You're here even though you're here was the main person who introduced the Maliki madhhab to all of Underoos. And those became Maliki and to this day, North Africa is Maliki because of this one student because he had that him and he was the main student of Imam Malik. And he showed that dedication, it is also mentioned about Ibn Abbas, the famous scholar, even Abbas, remember Ibn Abbas, we consider him a scholar on the process and passed

00:16:56--> 00:17:35

away. He was 13 years old, none of the Sahaba thought him to be a scholar, the senior slob, he's a youngster, he's the next generation had been Abbas said, When the Prophet says and passed away, I said to myself, let me go and study from the Companions before they leave as well. And so I said to my best friend who would play with me, I said to him, let us go and study while the companions are still alive. So my friend said to me, this 13 year old friend, my friend said to me, and who do you think you are, who's going to ever need your knowledge? You're just a kid like us who's gonna who's gonna be concerned about you? If and Abbas said, for Tarak, to who I left him, and I went to the

00:17:35--> 00:18:13

Sahabas, houses began memorizing Hadith writing Hadith, until finally, many years later, I saw that friend of mine coming to my gatherings benefiting from me, and he would say, Woe to me how I wish I had studied with you back in the day Subhanallah though put you put in the effort, you're going to see the result you show your earnestness and dedication, and the reality is going to show you this, this this point of action. One of my favorite Hadith, about action about doing about being active and not passive, famous Hadith. You've all heard this before. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if the Day of Judgment, trumpet is blown, and you hear that trumpet, and you have in

00:18:13--> 00:18:50

your hand, a plant that you can put in before you die, then planted before you die. This hadith is a metaphor, meaning it's not meant to be taken literally, because when the trumpet is blown, nobody's gonna care about the plant, right? It's not meant to be taken literally. But it's meant to drive a point and what that point is what, whenever you see an opportunity, take it, whenever you see an opportunity to do good, take it, even if you're at the death, even if judgment is coming. Imagine who's going to eat from that plant, there is no human being still do something positive, you don't know what's going to happen in the future. So that's why our profit system is telling us to be

00:18:50--> 00:19:09

proactive. So point number four legacies are not established by laziness and inactivity. legacies are established by constantly trying and doing and being active and being involved and digging in the trenches and starting from the bottom up. And this leads me to point number five.

00:19:10--> 00:19:57

No legacies are built with initial success. That doesn't happen. legacies come and leadership is formed after multiple attempts of what others would call failure, but it is not failure. If it leads to a legacy and success. It's not failure. If the end result is success. You will never achieve a legacy unless and until you have tasted defeat multiple times. And you have borne the brunt of being patient and being ridiculed and being mocked and being criticized and being abandoned by people whom you thought were close to you. Ibn Abbas, his friend said I left him this is the reality of forming a legacy. You have to believe in what you're doing. You have to be sincere you have to keep on doing

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

it. And in the beginning there shall be rejection.

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

In the beginning, there shall be failure. But in the end, that is what the tomato or the fruits of soccer is. Economically, Ian mentions that no one becomes a leader until they have gone through multiple failures and tasted the reality of soccer. You have to be patient at the bitterness of defeat, to taste the sweetness of victory. You shall never be victorious initially. Even our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had to go through so many obstacles in Makkah, even the Battle of Otto and the Battle of taboo can others these were difficult times. But then the success comes and the conquest of Makkah takes place. You cannot have the conquest of Makkah without the persecution

00:20:41--> 00:21:24

before that. If that's the case of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how about me and you? How about me and you. And so we have to understand point number five legacies are not built overnight. They're not built in a day, they take days, months, years, decades of practice, decades of constantly trying and trying. And it is even possible, even possible that you yourself might not see the full fruits of your legacy. But after you leave this dunya the other people will recognize and appreciate that too, has happened multiple times in human history. So understand this point that legacies are not built in a day. Point number six brothers and sisters, you want to leave a legacy,

00:21:24--> 00:22:11

then realize that the strongest legacies, the most powerful legacies, the people will always remember, not what you said, not the speeches, not your your your your interactions, your daily routine, they will remember how you made them feel. If you touch somebody's heart, good or bad, by the way, it goes both ways. If you make somebody happy or angry, if you make somebody genuinely feel a sense of Subhanallah, this brother helped me out or the opposite. How could this brother have done this to me, if you change somebody's emotions, you elevate their emotions or you harm their emotions. That is the best way or the worst, if you harm to leave a legacy. Legacy is primarily come

00:22:11--> 00:22:54

from how you've touched people's hearts. So you want to leave a legacy. Think about maximizing how you affect people positively. bring a smile to people's faces. Make sure that you are compassionate and kind, make sure that you're generous. These are how legacies are built legacies don't have to be global. If your immediate family and friends remember you as a pious and righteous man, if your children constantly make dua for you, that is enough of a legacy. But you have to leave that legacy in the hearts of people not by writing or by act no in the hearts and that legacy is done when your o'clock touches the hearts of other people. So think about how you can maximize bringing about joy

00:22:54--> 00:23:32

and happiness and peace. How about you can help people go through struggles, how you can financially aid those who are in need of aid. That's how legacies are built. When you move somebody's emotions, once you leave this dunya the DUA will come from the emotion the DUA will come from the depths of the heart because you have affected them in a positive manner. So the primary legacies come from the cold and not any other mechanism. And last point, point number seven when it comes to legacies, point number seven, when it comes to legacies, as with all things, nothing happens without Allah's will. So you want to leave a legacy. You want to leave a positive legacy, make dua to Allah subhanho

00:23:32--> 00:24:16

wa Taala make dua to Allah to accept your deeds because that's what a legacy is this aboon it's acceptance when you have Cabul rockburn Ballymena when Allah has accepted than the people accept your goal is not the people your goal is Allah but when Allah accepts the people accept as well and that is the Sunnah of Allah azza wa jal in his creation, and that's why in the Quran, we have the DUA to be role models and legacy makers Robina habla Anna mean as wodgina with reality no Kurata our unit where Jana Imam, oh Allah make us Imams what is an imam. It's a legacy maker, an imam here a role model. People look to you for legacy people look to you for the impact you've caused. It's in

00:24:16--> 00:24:58

the Quran, we make dua to Allah, we want to be role models, we want to move and shake the people we want the people to look up to us not because of the fame, but because when the people look up to us, this is a sign that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has accepted our deeds. That's the point here we want to leave that legacy not for the sake of our egos, but to maximize our good deeds to maximize the sadaqa Giardia to maximize the two hours that the people make for us and that's why brothers and sisters do are constantly do are to be righteous and pious dua to be guided dua to do the best deeds do either Allah accepts those deeds and dua that the people as well appreciate what you have done

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

for the sake of Allah all

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

This is a part of how we live our legacies. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the surah ya seen that one, act two boom, demo, thorough home, one act to demo a thorough home. We shall write down all the good deeds they have sent forward. And we shall also write down the legacies they leave behind, went up to Omaka demo demo what they have sent forward. What have we sent forward? The good deeds that we do in this world? Our sadaqa ours that ca our salah? That's a demo? What is what our thorough home what our thorough home what they leave behind when they leave on to the next world? What is the legacy that is still around even though they themselves are not there? How many people did they

00:25:42--> 00:26:21

impact? That is 1000 How many children did they orphans that they sponsor? That is 1000 How many people did they bring happiness to? That is 1000. What sadaqa Giardia did they make that is moving on even when they have left? That is Arthur. So Allah azza wa jal tells us your legacies, I am writing it down. Don't worry, brothers and sisters, we want to maximize the legacies of our lives because we have one life to live and there are people amongst us Subhanallah they have lived one life and yet their legacies span the entire globe. Look at the great giants of this DNA. Look at those who helped spread this DNA, what they have done, even if we don't know their names, we are all

00:26:21--> 00:26:56

a part of that legacy. The great scholars, your mom and bajada and others like them, they're great giants who help spread this DNA. How do they build? What do you then others their legacies, every one of us in this audience has directly benefited from their legacies. And Allah azza wa jal is giving them reward even though they live with one life. And even though we're not even conscious perhaps, of how we're benefiting from them. That's how we establish legacies you do the best you find your goal, you find your niche and then you ask Allah azza wa jal for acceptance to conclude this point, brothers and sisters, every one of us should think about this question of what shall be

00:26:56--> 00:27:13

my legacy before others are talking about your legacy and you are no longer there may Allah subhana wa Tada bless me and you within through the Quran, and may make us of those who are as verses they understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah is acceptance you as well ask Him for He is the food and the ramen.

00:27:22--> 00:28:04

Alhamdulillah All praise is due to Allah, the One and the unique. He it is when we worship, and it is his aid that we seek. He is the Lord of the oppressed. And he hears the prayer of the week as to what follows a second and disconnected topic, but it needs to be addressed as well, brothers and sisters, and the last week in this country of ours, there have been a number of cases of domestic violence that have led to the deaths of a number of our sisters across the country in Chicago, before this in Houston, and in California and other places as well. And this is a sad reality, and almost a taboo topic that needs to be addressed. And unfortunately, it is becoming not very common,

00:28:04--> 00:28:42

but it is even one is more than enough. And even if it doesn't lead to death, still the amount of abuse taking place within marriages, it needs to be addressed head on. And in this few minutes that I have remaining. I want to just bring up some simple points. First and foremost, Brothers and Sisters Brothers in particular. And of course, abuse takes place both ways. I know this, but statistically, statistically, it is women who are abused by their husbands more than the other way. And statistically, it is men who are more battering to the women. And statistically it says men who murder their partners or ex partners, their wives or ex wives were the ones to divorce more than the

00:28:42--> 00:29:24

other way around. So this whole book does is not meant to neglect that it goes the other way. But the emphasis should be on the default. And that's going to be the next few minutes that I'm going to do. First and foremost brothers men realize that Allah azza wa jal will ask you about your relationship with your spouses and your children. The Prophet system said in the Farewell Pilgrimage HOLD button Wada, the fair he had a few weeks left to live, and he gave the largest hutzpah that he ever gave him his life. It's only five paragraphs read that you all know it. An entire paragraph is dedicated to protecting women 1/5 of the hook virtual WADA is meant for women and he said to the

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

men, he's speaking to the men, it Allah Finisar be conscious of Allah with regards to your women and wives, be conscious of Allah because you have taken them in the name of Allah and you have had relationships with them using the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. You will be asked about them be conscious of how you treated them. And in the very final days of his life, one of the last sermons one of the last Hadith that we have mentioned is that he said to the people fear Allah when it comes to the women fear Allah when it comes to the women, we have to answer to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

More important than the law more important than any culture or our family and friends, every single husband is responsible in front of Allah for what happens in the privacy of the house, and a person who raises his hand to beat a defenseless woman is no Gentleman and this is what our prophets Allah said them himself said, when women came to complain about why husbands beating them, he gave a whole tuba, you can read the sort of Syrah he gave a whole book and he said, these women have come complaining about their husbands. These men are not the best men amongst you. That's not the role model. I should have the Allahu anha said never in his life did the Prophet system raised his hand

00:30:37--> 00:31:19

against a woman never in his life, so please, brothers, don't quote me. Books are fake and whatnot. The role model is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you want to be a true gentleman, you want to follow the Sunnah Do not raise your hand against the defense, this lady point number two, our sisters who are in this situation and also all of us here. Understand that we need to we need to destigmatize the concept of divorce. One of the main reasons why such women remain in marriages is because they think low carb Ganga What will people say, and we need to eliminate this Jai Hindi mentality. Your life, dear sister is more important than what people will say. And your honor is not

00:31:19--> 00:31:56

based upon a marriage to your husband is based upon your relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala. So if you have an abusive husband, if you have a husband, that is being an animal to you, then don't worry about what the people will say that Sharia has granted you the option of divorce and you go to your local sheriff, you go to your elders, and you tell them the reality so that a divorce can be solved between you do not remain in a situation of abuse, when the red line has been crossed, then you do not remain in that situation. And if a lady leaves a marriage because of this, then there should be no stigma on her. There should be no issue of taboo that she has a divorce lady No. On the

00:31:56--> 00:32:35

contrary, so many of the Sahaba and the Sahaba were divorced and they would marry divorced ladies, we have culturally made divorce into a stigma. Yes, we don't jump to divorce for the slightest reason I agree. But when there is an abusive situation, when her life is threatened, when she is being beaten, then there is no concept of Iza for the husband and sanctity of the marriage, she should leave that marriage and get a divorce. And any Islamic Courts or Shediac court is going to give her a divorce because of this issue. Point number three brothers and sisters, point number three when it comes to this reality of abuse. All too often. We men are aware that another man

00:32:35--> 00:33:17

amongst us has this nature. We know that he's abusive to his wife, but we don't do anything. And that is honestly a silent approval of that action. What do you expect a lady to do when her husband's treating her this way, except that his family and his cousins and his friends get involved? It is our collective duty for the fire when we know somebody is of this nature, that we get involved and prevent this from happening. In fact, there is no stigma in even publicizing this and people who are like this abusive in nature. If they propose we should go and tell that from the oh, this person he beats his wife you should know that. You're looking at me as as if this is

00:33:17--> 00:33:56

something strange Hadith isn't Bahati thought him up into place came to the process. And she said so and so and she gave the name so and so gave me the hit buffer Nica. She wants to marry me. Our Profit System said no, he is a man known to beat his wife. Heidi doesn't boy howdy. Look at our culture contrasted with the Sunnah. He told Fatima you shouldn't marry this man. This man is the abuser. This man he is known to beat his wife Subhanallah are we going to be more strict on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is no sanctity and honor to a man who is a serial abuser. Such a person if he proposes it's our collective duty. Now I'm not saying there is no salvation

00:33:56--> 00:34:30

perhaps a person repents, but at least the past should be known so that he is monitored so that it cannot lead to a stop for a law, a type of murder or something of this nature. And the final point that again, much can be said but time is limited to final point. You know, they have a motto here in this country after 911. They said if you see something, say something, we don't agree with that motto when it comes to stereotyping Muslims and whatnot. It's a completely false motto. But when it comes to marital abuse, it is 100% accurate. If you see something in your family and friends, if you see a woman being abused, if you see your cousin or even your cousin's wife, because generally

00:34:30--> 00:35:00

speaking, who is privy to this type of situation, it is the relatives of the husband, generally speaking, who covers up the crime. It is the friends and relatives of the male brothers, men be actual men. And if your brother or your cousin or your friend is beating his wife, then where is your manhood when another woman is being violated? And you just sit there and turn the other way? If you see something say something get involved bring your wife have a consulate How about a reconciliation?

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

and see what is the reality of the situation. And if the law needs to get involved, then if getting involved saves a woman's life, then we'll law he opened up the door and call 911. And say this man is physically abusing his wife and it cannot remain and continue in this fashion Muslims, we have a collective duty Wallahi It is shameful It is shameful that story after story is coming in our national media about Fatima so and so and Mohammed, someone's on your show, so and so do we not have a sense of here of the religion? How can we allow this to continue? So collectively, brothers and sisters, we need to step up to our responsibility and monitor our family and friends. And if we know

00:35:37--> 00:36:14

of such a case, do your best to become actively involved and minimize get involved make sure that this doesn't get to the point of it becoming an Islamic or haram? Yes, arguments happen. I'm not speaking about that. But abuse is not an argument raising your hand or leaving a bruise or broken bones. That's not an argument. So when you see the red line has been crossed, and the shady eye does not allow this type of abuse, then you cannot remain silent. So if you see something, definitely don't just say something but get involved and collectively final point brothers and sisters, as a community, as a community, we have to have domestic shelters for women who are suffering abuse. One

00:36:14--> 00:36:49

of the main reasons why such women remain. They say Where can I go, I don't have a place my family's back home. He is treating me this way. And that is why it is for like a fire on us to have women's shelters to open up places where when we when we know of the case of abuse, we can tell the sister and her children, look, you can go there for a few days. We'll take care of you until we figure out you know, what is the next step. And so large communities like Dallas and other major cities, definitely we need to have multiple such shelters of our faith community Wallahi it is sad and I've had cases like this where our sisters go to Christian shelters where our sisters go to other

00:36:49--> 00:37:26

shelters where hijab is an issue. You know, veiling is an issue, what not why? Why don't we have enough wealth to take care of our own. So this is another tactic that needs to be done. And the bottom line, we're raising awareness. I can't give all the solutions now, but we have to raise awareness and stop this topic from being taboo. The sanctity of our sisters lives is paramount here. And there is no desire for a criminal. We don't cover up the faults of a criminal more important is to protect the innocent women may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us all to do so alum and neither aminu Allah Allah than if you had the Jambi them and he loves our furniture.
