to Muslims. We live in interesting times. In this land of hours if a teenager a young man or woman, 16 1718 years old, 17 years old. If they wish to get a tattoo or permanent ink on their body, the law will say that's not allowed, you're too young to get a tattoo. If a 20 year old, now he's above the age of 18. He wants his wants to purchase beer. The law will say you're too young you cannot drink beer.
In fact, if any minor wants to purchase nicotine cigarettes, they too will be told this is not allowed. If a young man or woman below the age of 18 goes to the doctor says I want cosmetic surgery, I want to change my body look more handsome, more beautiful. The law will say society will say parents will say rightfully so you're too young to make this decision. All of this is valid and good, because that's the role of society of parents of law. But what we are seeing now is something very strange. In the same land, where a 17 year old cannot purchase cigarettes. If that same child comes and says, Oh, I think I have been born into the wrong body. I think my gender has been
assigned by God incorrectly. I think that I want to shift to another gender. And they go to the doctor, not for tattoo ink, not for cosmetic surgery to look more handsome and beautiful, but to self mutilate themselves, to cut off their natural organs to amputate that which makes them quintessentially male or female, at the same age that they cannot purchase a packet of cigarettes. If they go to the doctor and say, I want to block the natural progression of puberty. I want to take abnormal a typical drugs so that I don't develop and blossom into a young lady or I don't become a young man. The same society that doesn't allow a 17 year old to put ink on their hands is going to
welcome and embrace. And in case the parents say, Oh, hold on a sec, you're too young. In case the parents say you're only 1015 17. How can you make this decision? What we are seeing now is that terrifyingly not yet fully. But in more and more cases, the law is siding with a child against the parents. Under the guise of what is called transgender rights, we are witnessing yet another assault against the social fabric of humanity. And if you know your western history, this is not the first time these types of assaults have taken place. For the last 100 years, we have consistently been seeing one assault after another. Almost a century ago, after World War Two, a movement arose, a
movement arose that launched an attack on what it means to be quintessentially feminine. A movement arose that attacked the roles of men and women that mocked true femininity, even if they call themselves feminists, and they mocked true masculinity. And they said men and women roles are all the same. This movement by and large consider itself to have achieved success. But that wasn't the end. After this movement finished, another movement arose. From the 60s onwards, a movement came and this movement blatantly encouraged, promiscuity outside of marriage embraced intimacy not in the privacy of the bedroom of the husband and wife but everywhere know that he far he shall lie
sensuousness became the norm. And this movement as well was wildly successful from their own paradigm. As we speak today. It aligned were barely 100 years ago, this very land. less than 10% of people engaged in premarital intercourse in this land now, over 95% of our men and women are engaging in premarital intercourse. Let that statistic
to sink in over 95% of society is engaging in premarital intercourse. And it is not even considered to be something that one needs to hide. So that movement as well change society altogether. As if that wasn't enough, yet another movement began this one in our own lifetimes those of us that are above the age of 35, or 40. From the 80s onwards, a new movement began the same sex movement, the LGBTQ movement, and we saw a normalization not only a promiscuity between a man and a woman, but between the same genders as well. And that too, was from its own paradigm wildly successful, and the Supreme Courts and others have passed the laws that they have passed. As if that wasn't enough, we
now have to face yet another onslaught. But this one, in so many ways, is even more sinister. It is frankly, unbelievable, because it is negating not just theology, not just scripture, not just history, it is negating basic biology. It is negating a scientific fact that there are no two opinions about and that is, the male and female are two separate genders, all of mankind, forget mankind, all of mammals, forget mammals, the entire species of animals, the default is yes, there are exceptions, the amoeba and whatnot. But the default is, every single created object is in male and female, this is the default. And nobody could ever have imagined a time when even this basic
fact of biology is being challenged. But here we are having to debate is gender real? Or is it a social construct, by social contract, they mean a figment of the imagination created by peoples and civilizations and societies. And it must be said, brothers and sisters, no matter how awkward this is, if you look at this trajectory, where we are now, frankly, it was inevitable from the very beginning. Because if you're going to tinker with gender roles, which is what happened 100 years ago, if you're going to challenge gender norms, the inevitable end result, you will challenge gender itself, you will challenge gender and biological sex itself. And here we are having to teach our
children such a basic fundamental fact, not just of the Quran, not just of history, but of biology, that the male is not like the female that there are two genders that there is something called DACA. And there's something called untha. And these two are not the same. And brothers and sisters, even more terrifying than simply having to teach our children is the ever encroaching reality of legislation affecting even our family households already in Canada. This is an actual court case already in Canada, a minor somebody below the age of 18, wanted a boy wanted to become a girl, the parents said no, this young boy sued his own parents in court, he was not yet 18. And he said, My
parents are preventing me, he said, My parents are preventing me from becoming a sheep. And so he sued his parents to become a sheep. And the courts sided with him, stripped his parents rights to be parents took him away from his parents, because that is abuse in their eyes, put him in another home, and allowed him to transition into her. And here in Texas, brothers and sisters, not too far from home, there is a case going on right now. Terrifying. And that's why I'm giving this talk but because we need to stand up to protect our own children, and also speak to broader society. Here in Texas. A couple went through a divorce the father now is separate from the mother. And the mother
wants to transition the child seven years old. The mother wants to force the boy to become a girl. And the Father is saying no. And the mother is saying this boy is a girl trapped in the body of a boy. It's actually a girl in spirit. And the boy identifies as a girl. And the Father is saying, No, this is something she put into the kid's head. Once this baby was born, the baby was always a boy, but she dressed him like a girl. She did this. She did that. And now obviously, the boy thinks it's a girl because that's the way it was treated. So the husband is saying this is the fault of the tibia. And she is saying no, this is the gender identity. And as of yet the courts still battling
but as of yet, he has no say in this matter. And the courts are siding with the mother in this regard. And this is a Christian couple. This has nothing to do with our faith, but it is to do with our family and it is
as basic human rights, brothers and sisters Wallahi It is a sad reality that here I have to give a Friday Hotspur, about the basic back facts of life that there is male and there is female, and the two are different at every single level, but we have no choice. Because this legislation is not only corrupting our children, it is frankly threatening us even in our households. May Allah protect all of us if the same trend continues. What will we do if one of our own children is brainwashed? What will we do if a seven year old in our own Masjid stands up says says I am in a different gender? What will we do at that stage? That is why we need to understand from now what is happening and put
up a fight within the remnants within the strategies of the law and make sure that our rights to pass our faith, our rights to practice Islam freely, our rights to be normal human beings, frankly, are not taken away from us. And therefore brothers and sisters, today's hold by no matter how difficult it is, no matter how awkward it is, it is a necessary beginning step for a much larger problem. Because we need to protect our values. We need to protect our way of life. We need to protect the religious freedoms granted to all of us and also brothers and sisters. We're not just being selfish. It's not just me, myself and I it's not just my my family and my kids. No, we also
have to recognize that we as Muslims have a higher responsibility than any other faith tradition. We as Muslims have to answer to Allah subhana wa Tada. We as Muslims have been appointed by Allah to be witnesses unto mankind. We are shahada are the nurse we are witnesses to mankind. What does a witness do? A witness speaks the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. A witness speaks the bitter truth. A witness does not care about the repercussions the ramifications of speaking the truth, the witness must testify to the truth regardless of what happens at the trial. Regardless of what the verdict is, the witness must testify to the truth. And Allah has given us a truth. And that
truth is the religion of Islam and embodied in the religion of Islam is morality. It is a HELOC. It is Hyah. It is decency. And we are and I say this bluntly, the last religious civilization that is sticking to its roots here, and not capitulating to the whims and desires of modern society. It is sad to point out that the bulk of other Abrahamic religions, we say this Wallahi with a sense of sadness, we say this wanting them to have stood up because in the end of the day, they have more right to this culture than we do that is a fact. Yet they have capitulated. And they have acquiesced, and they have surrendered by and large. So if they have surrendered, well, then even
more, so we are going to stand up. And by Allah, we shall never surrender on this reality. We are going to stand up and preach the truth, no matter how bitter no matter what the consequences are, this type of hedonism, this type of sensuality, this type of life, sensuousness and animal illness, this type of foolishness, we need to stand up and preach loudly. And clearly enough is enough. And we're not going to allow our children and our families to be corrupted by what is happening in their broader society. And yes, that is your laws you do as you please, but we will speak and we will tell you what you're doing is wrong. Even if it's to yourselves, even if it's to yourself, we have no
right to stop you. We have no right to legislate your own laws, but we do have the right to stand up and preach. And we have the God given responsibility to be of those who are preaching the religion of the prophets and morality as enshrined by all Abrahamic religions, brothers and sisters, and especially our young brothers and sisters, our teenagers and those younger than them, we need to understand, no matter what society teaches, you know, no matter what cartoon say, no matter what Disney Channel has, we need to understand that mankind is divided into male and female, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you will notice in the hudec now community record in one form, or
mankind, we created you from one man and one woman, all of us come from one man and one woman, Allah subhanho wa Taala says weboth, Amin humare, Jalan cathedra, and when he saw from the two of them are spread forth multitudes of men and multitudes of women, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, he said that Gurukul on the man is not like the woman such a simple idea for centuries. For millennia people glossed over this idea, it's such a simple fact why put it in the Quran. But here we are, we have to quote this idea. And this idea takes on a whole new meaning in the culture that we live in where les says that Carol Calusa such a simple fact such an incontrovertible unconscious
Reverso fact and yet Allah azza wa jal has it in the Quran because we need to use it in the society that we live in. The man is not like the woman at every single level, the man is not like the woman, biological sex is determined Even down to the chromosomes, you can take any cell out of a body, you can take any cell out of a body, and you can examine that cell if it's xx or XY chromosome, and you can tell whether the cell comes from a man comes from a woman, the man of the body, the body of demand, the body of the woman is different, it is different physiologically it is different in the genitalia it is different in the body mass and the muscle mass and the mass of every single aspect,
it is different in the density of the bones, you can find the skeleton 2 million years old, and you can test whether it is male or female, it is down to the very bones, you can tell the difference between male and female, hormonally intellectually, physically. And when I say intellectual, I'm not saying one of the two is better than the other. No, women are highly talented in areas men are not talented and and vice versa. Each one of them has talents, the other does not have each one of them has strengths the other does not have and put together the strengths of the man and the strengths of the woman become the strengths of the mother and father and the family is protected. But when you
tried to tinker with this reality, when you tried to change the default, well, then you're going to end up where we have ended up brothers and sisters that claim that biological sex is a choice. It is not just factually incorrect. It is not just scientifically patently false. It goes against the lived reality of every society known to mankind from the beginning of human history, the man is not like the woman. And yet, if you look at what our children are being taught, they are taught to that you may choose your gender, and you may change your mind every few days. One day you wake up and you're this the other day you wake up, you're that oh, by the way, if you didn't know, it's not just
two genders, I actually checked today to make sure I'm up to date, because the list is updated every few weeks and months. I just checked one of their websites, and I'm not exaggerating, 105 identities, genders and identities. 105 more flavors than Baskin Robbins, you wake up and you just change every day, I want to be this, I want to be that. And subhanAllah it would be bad enough if it was just adults, mutilating themselves and pretending they could to become a different gender. But now they want to hoist this on to us as a Muslim community and onto us upon our families, those people who are born male, but they say they are now female, forget, okay, they want to compete in
sports events as well, which is a problem. But they also want to now go to the bathrooms of the different gender. So somebody born and raised as a man now says, Oh, but I identify as a woman who wants to go to the women's bathroom. Somebody born as a woman the other way around, they want to go to the locker rooms and high schools have the opposite gender, just because they claim something. That's it. And they don't even have to prove they don't even have to undergo any surgery because now the notion is it's just an identity of the mind, a social construct. And brothers and sisters, one of the problems we're having now,
along with Stein, may Allah protect all of us I had asked, I've been asked this question multiple massages across the country.
A person either converts or is involved with this movement, and now they're born one gender, but they claim another gender and they want to pray. Born into the male gender, they want to pray with the women.
I have been asked this question by three masters in this country
already happening, and they're worried if we do something the law will come in is gonna cause a public new scandal. This person's identifying our sisters don't want him to come her it whatever she whatever you want to call, they don't want him or it to come. What do we do now? Subhanallah unless we stand up and speak, unless we fight for our religious and civil rights, the situation is only going to become worse. And here we have to acknowledge one of the tactics one of the dastardly tactics of this trend, and that is to accuse us of preaching hatred and violence. They've coined the term transphobia. If you dare don't agree with the sentiment, then you are somebody who's
acknowledging somebody who's embracing racism, somebody who's wanting to prove hatred, and this is completely untrue. They accuse us of bigotry and hatred, and potentially calling for violence, but we respond back in venting terms. transphobia doesn't change biological facts. Were telling you biological facts. Forget even scripture. You're not Muslim. Okay? Forget even scripture. You can invent whatever term you want. We are speaking biological truths here.
Also, disagreeing with a lifestyle does not mean you are preaching hatred. We need to say this loudly and clearly. disagreeing with a lifestyle does not mean we are preaching hatred, much less violence for centuries. We are saying we don't drink alcohol. Are we preaching hatred of all the people who drink beer? who drink alcohol? No, of course not. That's their business. They're doing it. We don't drink alcohol. Allah was that freedom and right, nobody invented the term alcohol phobia. Muslims are alcohol phobic. No, our preaching of our morality does not mean we are preaching hatred, much less violence. That is your imagination. That is your false accusation. And it is
nothing for there is nothing further from the truth. You have your lifestyle choices allow us to have our lifestyle choices as well. And we speak out against it not only because we are believers in a higher power, but because we genuinely believe this is harmful. This is dangerous. If a young man or woman said I want to cut my hand off. What would you say? If a young man or woman said I want to cut my leg off? What would you say? We would come together say no, no, don't do it. This is wrong. Well, then if they want to cut their genitalia off all of a sudden becomes it becomes sacred under law. It's the same principle. What Your Lord has gifted you is a gift. How Your Lord created you is
a gift unto you and appreciate that gift and accept Allah azza wa jal as blessings upon you. In the end of the day, brothers and sisters, we cannot force anybody to do anything. But we will draw the line when it comes to our rights when it comes to our preaching. And especially when it comes to our children. Do whatever you will you have to answer to your Lord. But when you drag in your promiscuity, and you show us drag queens in our own public schools in our own public spaces, when you spoon feed our children to begin questioning their gender at the age of five or six. Well then No, no, we are not the ones preaching hatred. You're the ones preaching indoctrination. You are the
one spreading immorality and filth in places where you are not welcome. Do as you please in your personal lives, but leave our children out of it. Brothers and sisters, the irony of ironies, well, Allah, He the irony of ironies, the same movement, the same strand of you know, social justice and whatnot, who believed that there are more than two genders, who believe that the whole gender is a social construct, look at their discourse about race and about ethnicity. They say, they say that race and ethnicity is a social construct, which is actually true, there is no such thing as race, my brown skin color, you're black, you're white. If I were to take a blood sample, you couldn't tell my
skin color. Race really is a social construct. Ethnicity really is something that changes every few centuries, my ancestors 500 years ago are going to be totally different from my children, grandchildren. 500 years from now, race and ethnicity and social class are 100% constructed by mankind. That much is clear, right? Okay. Now go to the same crowd and say, I want to choose my race, race, which is a social construct, ethnicity, which is a figment of the imagination. You cannot tell everybody's ethnicity by their facial features. We all know this. Sometimes you can't sometimes you can. Sometimes you're mistaken. race, ethnicity, social hierarchy, who is the royal
family who's born into the kingdom? This is completely arbitrary. This is a social construct. Okay, go to the same movement that wants to tinker with gender and say to them, let's tinker with an actual social contract construct. Let somebody who's of a white skin color identify as from African heritage. Let somebody who's from the Far East identify as Caucasian. Let somebody who was born into a poor family identify as being from the Royal kings of Norway led the descendants of a royal dynasty, you must announce me by my pronoun, Her Royal Highness, that's going to be my pronoun. What will the same movement say? Have you lost your mind? Or how dare you? That's insulting, social
appropriation misappropriation. You have no right to claim your ethnicity is different than what you are you have no right to claim your class. Your social hierarchy is different than what you are. This is social misappropriation. SubhanAllah. We say you're right. You're absolutely right. Yes. I have no right to claim that I am Caucasian or I'm of African heritage, my heritage is Indian boxer. Absolutely right. But then, when we acknowledge that this race and ethnicity is 100% manmade, then we are telling you go beyond this and go to that which is from Allah subhanho wa Taala do not tinker with what Allah subhana wa Taala has gifted you brothers and sisters IBLEES threatened, threatened
Allah subhanho wa Taala IBLEES threatened Allah. And he said, because of what you have
done. I will misguide all of these people, little we're known as your Marine. And IBLEES said to Allah the majority of them will be unthankful and you know what he believes said?
Well arm or under Home further you her urine hull Kola,
I'm going to misguide them and command them to the extent they will change the way that you created them. They're going to disfigure their own selves, follow you her urine, no Hello cola. They're going to change the way you created them. All Muslims. What bigger disfiguration is there? What worse mutilation is there? Did not IBLEES say he would do this and we see this happening here. What greater disfiguration when the gift that Allah has given you, you reject it and say, No, I will cut my own member off. I will disfigure my own body, and I think this is something that is praiseworthy brothers and sisters, we should not tinker with the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala. What this
movement is doing, it is playing God and you cannot play God with the creation of God because you are not God. What this movement is doing, it is implementing the misguidance of beliefs and rejecting the guidance from Allah subhanho wa taala. So we seek Allah's protection from this misguidance and to Him we turn Baraka liberal Khurana Aleem, we're gonna find your way you're coming my finger to particular Hakeem or odometers Marone was tough for a lot of the Middle Eastern wisdom equilibrium for sale photo Nola photo Rahim.
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah helwa Had Allah had a summit Allah de la myriad William EULA Olivia co lo co founder, Eduardo. Before we conclude brothers and sisters, I have to give some very important disclaimers. The entire first cookbook was indeed the default there are two genders, and the Sharia and common sense and lived human history and the experience of mankind and the fitrah. Allah created us upon tell us that these two genders must be embraced and acted upon and lived out. The one who's born biological male should embrace his masculinity. The one who was born biological female should embrace femininity, the two genders are spiritually equal, there is no superiority between the two
genders, but the two genders are not the same. So let women embrace their femininity. Let men embrace their masculinity. And when each does so society will flourish, and the children will be protected. But there are exceptions, very, very rare. But there are exceptions biological, and sometimes maybe even beyond this, some people less than if I'm not mistaken, point 1%. That's one out of every one out of every 1000 People that are that are born less than point 1%. They are born with an anomaly not xx or XY, maybe x x, y, x, y, y. And within that point, 1%. Another maybe 1% of that point, one, they are born with two genitalia. And this is a phenomenon goes back to the
beginning of time. For this category of people, there is no doubt Yes, we say to them, it's not your fault. We say to them, this is a test for you. And for them, no doubt, surgery and therapy and whatever needs to be done. No doubt this is the reality. Also, there might be some people there might be that they are struggling with emotions and desires that are not normative. They're not the default. They're struggling, even though maybe biologically there might be normal, but maybe their sexual desires, maybe even their gender desires within their heart might be different. And we say to them, dear brother, dear sister who is biologically normal, we wish you the best in this world and
the next we empathize with that struggle. But we remind you that this religion of Islam is meant to tell you which of your desires are wholesome, and which should be curbed and controlled. The desire is not sinful, that desire will not get you punished. That desire doesn't make you any less of a human or person. And anybody who says so doesn't know the religion of Islam, to merely desire something, even if it's not normal, in and of itself that is not sinful, and Allah will not punish you. And if you're struggling with a desire, we make dua for you. We welcome you. You are our brother and our sister in faith. But dear brother or sister, not every desire needs to be
manifested. Not every desire needs to be validated. Not every desire needs to be acted upon curb as much as you can control that which Allah has told you is not healthy, as much as you can. And if you control your desires, perhaps your reward is better than mine, because you were tested in ways I cannot imagine. And even if you slip up even if you slip up, then we are all sinners cover your sin. Do not embrace your sin. Do not publicize your sin. Do not identify with your sin.
We don't go around identifying Oh, this guy's a drunkard. This guy's a a person who has extramarital affair there's no even if you have committed a sin, may Allah forgive you on me conceal your false hide your defects keep them between you and Allah and Allah is Allah for Allah is Rahim Allah is Ramadan. But don't embrace a lifestyle that is known to be sinful known to be detrimental even if you slip, let it be between you and Allah and don't make it something you publicize Allah is of a food and Allah is Rahim. But when you flout the religion of Allah when you embrace an evil lifestyle, when you are proud of something that is unethical and immoral, and haram, it is at that
point in time that we genuinely are worried about your faith. Do whatever you can in your private lives and repent to Allah, you have hope. But the minute you go public and are proud of something that you should not be proud of, well al to be law, this is a major problem of the heart and we seek Allah's refuge, do Muslims.
Facts need to be said plain and simple, and ask Allah as protection for the potential backlash. the transgender movement is a part of a broader cultural trend that goes down many decades goes back many decades. And it is based upon it is based upon a rejection of a higher sense of morality. It is based upon a rejection of the Divine. And it's embracing hedonism and sensuality and narcissism of the most basis human desires. Its basic premise is that one's feelings are the ultimate arbiter of truth. If I feel something, then this is the way it should be. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is religion has come and told us that's not how we base facts. FRR Atia monitor hada Illa, who Hawa who
have you not seen the one who took his desires as his God, this movement has taken his desires as its God, we don't take our desires as our God, our God is our Creator, not ourselves, our God is Allah azza wa jal, not what is inside of our heart, the entire movement from beginning to end from its very inception 100 years ago, the entire movement is a threat to family values, and hence to a wholesome society. I conclude brothers and sisters, that as Muslims as Muslims, we must have the courage we must have the Eman we must have the fortitude to stand up to protect our own children to protect our own families from such misguidance. And as American citizens who proudly believe in the
God of Abraham, the God of Moses, the god of Jesus, the god of Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wa seldom As Americans, we speak to our fellow citizens and we tell them turn back to God, it is still not too late. Turn back to my God and your God turn back to the God of Abraham, because fellow citizens of this country because the path that you are heading down this path is a path of utter depravity and moral destruction. And unless God saves us all, unless there is intervention from up above, there is no end to this other than the destruction of the family. And with that the destruction of society will Allahu Taala muster and Allama and neither and Firmino Allama data data volume visa Manila,
