perhaps some of you have heard of the tragedy that took place a few days ago here in our city of Dallas were very sad news that a certain brother became angry in a domestic violence case and murdered his wife along with Stein Leila heilala. Hello, Tula villa. And the three or four children before children then became orphans, he was put into jail we prayed the janazah for a year in this Masjid few days ago, and the fourth quarter because there is no immediate relatives, the four children have been taken into the foster care system and we don't know in all likelihood, they will be given to non Muslim families. Inshallah, we're going to be giving multiple hookbaits about

00:00:49 --> 00:01:41

domestic violence but because this just happened this week, and we pray janazah right here in this message over our system, Allah azza wa jal accept your shahada and grunter for those, it is imperative that we just pause for a second and reflect about our own realities. So much can be said and will be said inshallah. We'll have specific seminars for this topic in the upcoming months. But first and foremost, one millisecond of anger changes an entire life of six people. one millisecond of anger, the whole load of hotel Nabila. Be careful. Brothers and sisters, be careful of acting in his fit of rage, our professors have told us anger is from shape on a horrible minute shape on when

00:01:41 --> 00:01:57

you feel angry, say our older biller say Bismillah do will do sit down don't act don't talk. Second point will given hook buzz about this will give seminars more about this. The sad taboo of domestic violence.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:38

You know, we are taught when you see something, say something we're taught this about terrorism, what not, we need to start applying this within our communities and families. I speak bluntly and loudly and clearly, every one of you in this audience are is responsible for your immediate circle of family and friends, acquaintances and relatives. If you know your cousin, if you know your brother, if you know your immediate friend is abusing his or her spouse and it's a two way street. Yes, the majority of abusers are men without a doubt, but sometimes it is the women physically abusing them. And it's a two way street. It happens on both ways. If you know somebody that is being

00:02:38 --> 00:03:01

abused in your own circle, do not stay quiet, intervene, get involved and if need be, if it is life threatening, how can you not call the police to prevent something like this, brothers and sisters fear Allah subhanho wa Taala for innocent young children are now in the foster care system, in all likelihood, they're going to be raised by non Muslims.

00:03:03 --> 00:03:44

What can be said here, monitor and be aware of what is happening in your own circle, do not tolerate domestic violence. The third point, if you yourself, are having issues with marriage, if you yourself are having you know marital disputes, do not trivialize solving those problems before they get to a level this is obviously extreme, but even less than this. There's nothing wrong with counseling. It's not taboo, you know, in our cultures of back home in our cultures of our elders, we would think that you know, these types of psychiatrists, these types of therapists, this is not for normal people. You know, we have we now know it is meant for normal people we now know this is

00:03:44 --> 00:04:24

nothing there should be no taboo about getting therapy about going to a marriage counselor about figuring out what is going on bringing in the Quran references a type of counseling, Allah azza wa jal explicitly says if the two of them are about to divorce, let everyone reach out to an elder that everyone reached out to a heck of a judge and let them all come together, spill all the beans, be very frank in this private gathering what is happening, why is there dispute and then try to resolve the problem internally before something like this happens, brothers and sisters as a community, we have to raise the bar. And the final point last night we invited a family lawyer. And she explained

00:04:24 --> 00:04:59

to us the reality that as soon as something like this happens in the Muslim children get into the foster system, the courts have no time no luxury to wait 10 months, they have to go immediately to the First Family available, a family that has already registered to adopt children. These are foster families. And unfortunately, in our culture and our faith communities, by and large. We don't get involved in this system, because we don't get involved in the system. I mean, you can't really blame the courts. These are for kids. What are you going to do with them? They need a house. They're going to go to the first family that can take them if they can't take all four they're going to separate

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


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

Kids into different families. And the fact of the matter 99.99% of the people on that list are not from a Muslim background, which means we need to raise the bar. So yesterday we invited the lawyer, she told us what needs to be done, you need to register with the family services, you need to make a phone call, you know, fill out a form, it doesn't cost any money, it cost minimal amount of time, such that May Allah protect all and sometimes it's not even an accident could be a a tragedy, a car accident list, it doesn't have to be a murder, sometimes things happen. And there's no family, there are Muslim children involved. So what I'm asking those of you who are able to financially and

00:05:36 --> 00:06:10

marital wise and stability wise, if you're able to register yourself, and you have the right to say I want people from my ethnic background, I want people from my faith community, you have that right. And once that, may Allah protect any family. But once that happens, we want Muslim couples to be on that list. We don't have Muslim couples on that list. And so unfortunately, these four kids in all likelihood, we're not certain and there's confidentiality. But realistically, we spoke to the you know, people, we there are no Muslims on this list. That's the problem. It's not that the government is being know, what are you going to do when there's no Muslim families that want to take care of

00:06:10 --> 00:06:47

Muslim kids, it's not anybody else's fault. It's our fault. So that's why in the hotbar, I am raising this public awareness that not just anger management, not just you know, domestic violence and therapy, but also we need to collectively take charge of our community. So please, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives talk to each other. If you're able to have a sponsor, have a child a foster child, you know of our background, then go through the process, call up the necessary phone calls, they'll come and visit you fill out the forms and have your name on the emergency list. If anything like this happens, we want them to come to a Muslim family be raised by a Muslim couple,

00:06:47 --> 00:07:26

this is fortify on all of us may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect all of us from ever having to see something like this again Allahumma and NIDA and for aminu, Allahu Allah Tada and if you had to meet them and in love Africa, Allah HeMen Illa for Raja while iodine and Allah for data while Maria on Alicia feta when I see her on Ilya Serota, Allah ma fildena.
