Ferrell howdy. How do you Mohammed in sallallahu alayhi wa salam, in the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Most Merciful. All praise is due to Allah. I made his peace and blessings be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we bear witness that no one is worthy of worship but Allah And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed his final messenger. The best of speeches the book of Allah, the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. May Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those who listen to the best of speech, the book of Allah and follow His commandments. And may Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst

00:01:29--> 00:01:56

those who come to know the best of ways the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and make us amongst his followers. Allahumma Amin Allahumma Amin Allah Who mean Yeah, Baba Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or LA or buena Jalla wa Ala we're in CardValet afternoon a cannula D of hyena illogicality of tarryall or euro. What is a lector Hangzhou kaha Lila,

00:01:57--> 00:02:04

these are verses from Surah Al Israa. The night journey where the Quran documents

00:02:05--> 00:02:22

several different incidents leading all to one attempt. And they ALLAH SubhanA, Allah says, And they who have gone astray, those who have knowingly denied and they chose to reject the truth,

00:02:23--> 00:02:39

they attempt to lose you are Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, so that you may falsely attribute something to us. And if you were to give in to this, they would have indeed taken you as a friend

00:02:40--> 00:03:20

or be the thief. But in Abuja, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a Troy by the name of Cliff, they came and they met with the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet of Allah spoke to them about Islam. So they said the following they said, let me know like a hat that your Allah Allah Nafi sollen Nephi Ruby her in that arm. There's one condition that we are going to believe in you that you are a messenger of ALLAH, if you fulfill with down with you, you must make certain qualities for us, that through which we are able to boast amongst the Arabs,

00:03:21--> 00:03:29

like Russia, learn ashore, learn algebra, material Ability Center, and learn

00:03:30--> 00:03:40

endurance ill health colourbond learner who would have been learner colori been Elena, who are even Moto and Anna in fact, the Herman Nanak.

00:03:41--> 00:03:57

So they have this proposal. They said, Look, if you want us to believe here are our conditions. Number one, whenever you call people to defend the community of the believers, we cannot be part of it.

00:03:58--> 00:04:39

Whenever you call people to give charity, we don't want to be part of it. Learn to jab and when we pray, we want you to exclude us. We don't bow down and we don't prostrate we only be standing but bowing prostrating we do not do colori bandana, who are you by learner? Every usually from the past. That is a gain for us remains for us. We're Kulu Reba and Elena humo Anna, and every usually that was a loss for us is going to be a note at this point. You do this and we are going to follow you.

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

So this is what we call a call to compromise.

00:04:46--> 00:04:53

And I'm not sure why. In religious communities, we get this idea that to compromise is good.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

to compromise it's good. To be flexible is good. Not in math.

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

So if your dean,

00:05:02--> 00:05:16

compromise, change your taste, that's fine. be accommodating to other people, that is fine. But when it comes to matters of your deen matters of your religion, you don't compromise in this.

00:05:17--> 00:05:22

You do not compromise in this. And that actually makes you attractive.

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

There was a recent article

00:05:26--> 00:05:31

in a very conservative magazine called the American conservative.

00:05:32--> 00:05:41

And the title of the article, the author gives it the following title. Islam is the last badass religion in the world.

00:05:43--> 00:05:49

That's what he said about Islam. He said Islam is the last badass religion in the world.

00:05:50--> 00:06:15

And he was talking about what is it that people fighting to be so attractive about Islam? And the most important element that he mentioned is how uncompromising Islam is and how uncompromising Muslims are. He said, this idea this quality, makes Islam very attractive to people.

00:06:16--> 00:06:32

Because, see, compromise is an illusion. In fact, it's referred to as a fallacy in philosophy. It's a fallacy. Somebody says the sky is yellow, not and somebody says, you know, sky is blue. Somebody says the sky is yellow. Compromise. Let's agree it's green.

00:06:34--> 00:06:43

Oh, the mixture of yellow and blue, you get green. So let's agree that it's good thinking that compromise is somehow coming into the into the middle point.

00:06:44--> 00:06:53

The environmentalist want us to recycle everything. The capitalist, they want us to buy everything. Let's recycle something.

00:06:54--> 00:07:07

Let's compromise. People think that compromising is this idea of coming to the middle point between two opposing views. Two opposing views is fine. Not the religion.

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

Not the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:07:12--> 00:07:33

And that makes Islam attractive. People look into this and they say there is something attractive about this. In fact, the author of the article, a conservative Christian himself, he says that the more I sit with these Muslims, the more I discovered that I have a lot more in common with them than the moderate Christian.

00:07:35--> 00:07:59

This notion of people will attempt a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know the people of orange they sat down. Hello man if LV Muhammad, what do we do to this man? Suffer I'm Rana. He's made a fool out of us, had the flu. Somebody needs to talk to him. And they chose this man by the name of ROB neuroglia. And they said, You go on you talk to him.

00:08:01--> 00:08:10

So he sits there. And he speaks to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says, Yo Mohammed Anta. Hi, Ron. I'm Abdullah bin Abdullah.

00:08:11--> 00:08:16

Abu. You will look into how you run. Abdullah.

00:08:17--> 00:08:44

Man sits there and ask the prophets Allah Allah Allah. Muhammad. He said, Let me ask you, who's better? You are Abdullah. Abdullah is his father. For second interview Saracen. The Prophet of Allah did not say anything. The condiments are you run under Abdul Malik? Who's better? You are Abdulmutallab, your grandfather. For a second W sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:08:46--> 00:08:54

Then the man precedes and says train contain him hieromonk fair in home ABA duel early how to let you edit

00:08:55--> 00:09:06

it if you say that they're better than you than the same people that you recognize to be better than you. They have worship the same God that you are belittling right now.

00:09:08--> 00:09:20

We're in Alta, in NACA Jairo. minhang feta Kalamata Anna stubby, and if you say that you're better than them, then speak up so that we can hear it from you.

00:09:21--> 00:09:27

00:09:35--> 00:09:41

shatta Germanna you've divided us so fat and at the moment

00:09:42--> 00:09:47

you made fools of us amongst the Arabs. Better to read.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

What is it that you want? Jeeva Money Is this what you want money? Well, Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah. No, no. If this is what you want, we will indeed make you the richest man

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

Alpha call in the beautiful Allahu Allah.

00:10:14--> 00:10:18

At that point the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and hate Amma and

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

Are you all done?

00:10:21--> 00:11:03

Said I am done for car interviews are Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Ha me 10 Zero min Rahman Rahim, Cara surah. Allah had developer for anzar to come so I gotta miss Lasar Fitr denotes so the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started reciting the Quran. They started reciting from him from Surah facilite until he got to verse number 13. And the man yelled, said that if if they, if they choose to walk away, then warn them, that they shall receive the chastisement like the people of the Moon and Earth. And the man said husband has walked up stop stop. Hello.

00:11:04--> 00:11:11

Is this all you have just reciting verses from the Quran to me is that is this really, for Colin Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hertha Marine,

00:11:12--> 00:11:22

Raja Raja lui la call me. The man went back to his people, and people are inquiring. What did he tell you? He said Wallah he made for him to

00:11:25--> 00:12:09

fit it in with a mood. On the right, you've taken them out of your car to allow him FM to rock. So they go back and they inquire what what what has happened. And he said, The man is just giving us a warning. He said, You spent all this time with him. Did he speak to you in Arabic? He said he's spoken out of you. But that's all i That's all. I understood. They make an appeal to his uncle. Talk to your nephew. He can't be doing this. Ask for some concession. We want some compromise, like let's meet somewhere in the middle. Let's agree that he should not belittle our gods and we won't belittle his let's agree that he can worship our God's one year and we will worship his gods for one year.

00:12:09--> 00:12:54

Let's just meet somewhere. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoken he spoke very clearly. He said, Yeah, Allah. He said my uncle, wala Hila, water shumsa And Yemeni while Kamara and Chi merrily, he said, my uncle, if these people were to place the sun on my right hand, the moon on my left hand side, I don't say anything about this issue. It's not happening. It's not happening. For starboard another useful Allahu Allah. And then the Prophet of Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam teared up, because these people just don't get it. And that is when his uncle encourage the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. Why do we compromise? Why do why is there such a need? Why are we so

00:12:54--> 00:13:44

willing to do that? So that generally speaking, there are four reasons why we compromise member, we're not talking about being socially intelligent. We're not talking about being emotionally intelligent, where you compromise. In fact, that is a beautiful quality to have. That type of flexibility is good. Not in matters of religion, not in matters of Deen. Islam is very uncompromising. You can't drink alcohol, you can't sell it, you can't advertise for it, you cannot take a small sip, you cannot be in a setting where alcohol is consumed very uncompromising. There is no room for compromise there. But why do we compromise? So by means of observation, they say, We

00:13:44--> 00:13:49

human beings tend to compromise when we know the right to be right.

00:13:50--> 00:14:04

Remember, what I'm about to say? Is Bad compromise. When you know the right to be right yet you are willing to compromise. Why? Number one they say? Fear

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

we're afraid. Afraid of rejection.

00:14:09--> 00:14:46

Afraid of alienation. afraid of loneliness on time this kid comes to the Imam of the masjid and he was about to go to a camp. It was a secular camp was not a Muslim camp and he was supposed to spend a week with his you know the camp group that he was going so he comes to the Imam said demand we know we have this and the Imam says Masha Allah may Allah He said please Imam please pray for me. So the Imam sha Allah, everything goes well for you. Comes back after the weekend the Imam is asking the kid so how did it go? He said that hamdulillah nobody found out that I am Muslim.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

would happen.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Sometimes when you do this, there are consequences. Consequences is rejection. Loneliness member

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

We're not belittling this, nobody wants to be lonely. Nobody wants to be rejected. Nobody wants to be alienated are people who say, You know what, in our, in our company, we have outings. And you know what? People just no longer invite us anymore? What would happen? Or they found out that we don't drink. So what is it that you want chef, any exceptions any room for that? You don't you don't compromise in this number to say that sometimes we compromise because of tolerance,

00:15:37--> 00:15:48

sympathy to beliefs that you know are false, yet you offer them sympathy that is not compromised and unacceptable.

00:15:50--> 00:16:14

They say also sometimes to be compromised, because of pleasure. You give in to be happy. They may see us as like a barrel moldy or, you know, the make a big deal of these things. What would you what do you do give in, in order to be happy, not our dean. And then finally, they say sometimes we compromise because we've just lazy.

00:16:15--> 00:16:59

Nobody wants to fight. We're talking about physical if I talk, intellectual fight. Nobody wants to say no, that's where I stand. Listen, especially in this culture, and that's a human, what we call a universal language. People admire people who are courageous. They may disagree with you, but they will say you know what, what I appreciate you being clear with me. I appreciate you standing where you stand right now. Even though I disagree with you, but I appreciate the fact that you stand up. People like courageous people. There is nothing attractive about being a coward. There is nothing attractive about you compromising your deen

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

when God who left you know, the hyena like they will attempt to loot you owe Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that you may invent something attributed to us either. The Hustle Kahala and if you were to do so, they would indeed take you as a friend, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when it was suggested that the people have already said to him, Look, we will come and sit with you. But you cannot have all these commoners amongst us, you know, the poor, the former slaves be sitting Bilal and Salman and all these low lives. Why don't you consider this we can have a special gathering, but not in the presence of these of these people.

00:17:43--> 00:18:20

And nowadays, the days of hedge are coming up, you're going to witness something really, really beautiful. And said this few days back. One of the most beautiful statements in our deen is Allahu Akbar, say that a believer utters the term Allahu Akbar at least 500 times a day, between a comma, a Zan and all the movements that you do in Salah and saying Allahu Akbar 33 times after each prayers. You utter the term Allahu Akbar at least 500 times a day.

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

A Hindu comes to the mosque.

00:18:24--> 00:18:39

And it was a silent prayer for an answer. Then he's just observing people praying. And as they're praying, of course, he doesn't understand what's going on. He said, but there was something that you all were repeating said, you know, there is this term that every time the leader would make, Allahu

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

Allahu Akbar, what is what does that mean? Allahu Akbar means Allah is great. And the man said, Ha, so this is the best democracy I have seen.

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

People getting together and all agree in that. Only Allah is great.

00:18:59--> 00:19:16

These pilgrims, they will be in hajj, and they will all be saying Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Chanting nothing that only Allah is great. We are all equal. An only Allah is great.

00:19:17--> 00:19:41

People look into these scenes. And it's impressive. How is it that you're so diverse, that you're so united? How is it that you don't speak the same language? Yet? You know what to do when it's time to praise Allah subhanho wa taala. The most peaceful demonstration will be taking place in few days.

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

The most diverse demonstration is going to be taking place in few days. In terms of purpose, worship Allah. In terms of duration, it can extend up to two months. In terms of diversity, nothing is more diverse.

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

In terms of numbers, nothing is bigger than it. People look into these things. And they look at it with admiration.

00:20:09--> 00:20:17

The last thing that you want to do is water these things down. These are the very things that makes them beautiful.

00:20:18--> 00:20:22

And when people don't compromise, people appreciate the small.

00:20:23--> 00:20:27

They even appreciate and admire you more.

00:20:29--> 00:20:53

A few days we few months ago, when we witnessed the World Cup said, Look, man, we don't deal with alcohol. We don't do alcohol like that. And people were up in arms. How can you and how can you? And now we see proposals in the Premier League, the richest and the biggest league in the world. People are saying, can we ban alcohol in the stadium? What happened? We just learned from the Muslims. You can have fun without having alcohol.

00:20:54--> 00:21:24

Member one time, there was a big conference during Christmas time. Now at the end of it, one of the people serving in there working at the hotel, comes and says I want to be a Muslim. Oh, you've been listening to the lectures, said Man, I did not hear a single lecture from you guys. Oh, so what happened? He said, You all have been here for four days, attending these lectures, men and women were not mixing. There was no music. And there was no drinking. You must be worshiping the right God.

00:21:26--> 00:21:47

People appreciate people who stand up, not people who compromise that's what we want to pass on to ourselves, as well as to our children. May Allah Subhana Allah keep us on the straight path era parliament. May Allah Subhana Allah protect our families. Apolo How will you start with your Allahu Allah confessed of Rahu in the whole of Rahim.

00:21:57--> 00:22:02

Hamdu lillahi Wa Kafa salat wa salam ala Rasulillah Mustafa olam and be authentic.

00:22:03--> 00:22:11

Be aware of how compromise takes place. Compromise is not an immediate process 10 As we let

00:22:12--> 00:22:21

certain E is not an immediate process. It goes through certain stages. Stage number one is the stage of attraction.

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

Something gets your attention

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

memorable one time

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

sitting, knowing an interfaith group.

00:22:32--> 00:23:01

And question naturally comes, you know, what does Islam say about this? What does Islam say about that? And the question was, What is Islam standard as far as LGBTQ homosexuality is concerned, somebody tells you know, where we stand. But then one of the believers, you know, then the other pastor said, you know, this used to be our position. But now we are more inclusive, and we decided that we just want to celebrate our humanity together. And we want to include everybody in

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

man, it sounds very good.

00:23:05--> 00:23:14

sound more human than you are. So one of the Muslims sitting there said, Yeah, but see, Islam has not progressed yet.

00:23:15--> 00:23:41

Islam has not progressed yet. Meaning that it's just a matter of time. Before we get there, be weary be aware of this idea of attraction, something gets your attention, and you don't pay much attention to it. Second stage is justification. Making excuses for the wrong then the law. The third one is

00:23:42--> 00:23:59

indulgence. restraints are removed. And then of course number four, you redefine. And at that point, compromise is compromised is born. No, love our dean.

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

Our dean is reasonable, but uncompromising.

00:24:05--> 00:24:53

lacantina Komali. Yeah, Dean. That's how you choose to live, then that's how you live to you is your way of life and to me is my way of life. Do not force upon me to change my beliefs. So they fit your I fit your definition. This makes you weak. Weak, people are not attractive. But what you want is, you want to see courage. And that's in sha Allah what we want to build in because it's already built in, in our deen and as we've said before, sadly, the Quran is a very brave book, read by a lot of cowards. In sha Allah will not have this culture of Valhalla mean that we take pride in our deen and we see that the utmost pride is to being a loyal servant to Allah subhanho wa Taala these days are

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

beautiful days. These are the days of Hajj, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man, I'm in a Yeoman Allameh lasagna

00:25:00--> 00:25:44
