hospital, Hadith he Kitab Allah wa Hiral 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. 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 speech of 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 its commandments. And may Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those who come to know the best of ways the way of Muhammad

00:01:29 --> 00:02:13

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and make us amongst his followers. Allah Who mean Allahumma Amin Allahumma Amin. In the past my brothers and sisters, we said that the messengers of Allah, were sent mainly with two missions, spiritual rejuvenation, and social re formation. Every messenger that Allah subhanaw taala sent. He said to his people, the main mission was La Ilaha illa Allah. But then there was also a secondary mission that took place. And that is addressing the ill of the society that the messenger was facing at that time.

00:02:14 --> 00:03:04

This is what we call being relevant. Speaking to the pain of the people, addressing issues at the hand, not issues from history, not issues that will come. But what is going on right now. The messengers of Allah, we're not afraid of speaking against it. Schreib Ali Salam came in, there was a lot of financial exploitation that took place. He spoke about La ilaha illAllah. But he also reminded the people of the financial exploitation that is taking place, Musa alayhis salam comes in, he tells the people to say La ilaha illa, Allah none is was there for sure, but Allah, but he also spoke about political oppression, which was the ill of the time. Reese Ali Salam Jesus is sent to

00:03:04 --> 00:03:38

the people who and he said to them, c'est la ilaha illa Allah but the people were really too much into obeying the letter of the law, while being heedless about the spirit of the law. So he would speak about that. And of course, we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also sent and there was a lot of societal and social oppression that was taken place. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa earlier Salam did address that. Of these messengers of Allah was Luke Elisa

00:03:39 --> 00:03:50

lope Alehissalaam was sent. And he reminded people of la ilaha illa Allah, but the L of his thigh was sexual immorality.

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

And Lord Alehissalaam was not afraid to speak about this. In fact, the Quran dedicates almost about 104 105

00:04:04 --> 00:04:21

verses in the Quran, or dedicated to telling us about the mission of Luca Allah, His Salah mo to Allah Himself Salam is mentioned in the Quran in about 27 Different places is mentioned by by name.

00:04:23 --> 00:05:00

We are also the followers of Lord Alayhis Salam, O Allah, Allah Lienhard, Allah Febi who there who macdaddy these are the people whom Allah subhanaw taala guided or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam follow on their footsteps speak about this. And in all honesty, my brothers and sisters, this is a topic that we tend to shy away from you know, we don't we don't speak about this. Rarely do we bring up the idea of sexuality or sexual immorality because, you know, that's not it's not something common that we do. Despite the fact

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

Baghdad, Allah in the Quran, is not afraid to bring this topic up. In fact, outside the story of Luke alayhi salam, the issue of * and sexuality is mentioned in the Quran in over 80 places, yet we refuse to talk about it. The very first identity that each and every one of us was given was our sexual identity. Think about this, the very first identity that was given to each and every one of us was our sexual identity. When we were born, what was the first question that our parents were asked hamdulillah my wife had a baby to people ask boy or girl,

00:05:46 --> 00:05:55

male or female, before knowing anything, it was our sexual identity. Nowadays, we don't even have to wait that long.

00:05:57 --> 00:06:45

Pregnancy takes place because we are expecting a boy or a girl, male or female. The Quran Subhan Allah sometimes when you read the Quran, especially when it comes to this topic and other topics, sometimes the Quran states the obvious. And usually when we speak, stating the obvious is very problematic, because the person feels that they're being perceived as being stupid. And as such, you're stating the obvious for them. And sometimes the Quran does state the obvious. The idea of there are two sexes, because remember this is this is debated nowadays, or it's debated and there is a hot debate. There is so much debate about this. There was actually a demonstration that took place

00:06:45 --> 00:06:55

two weeks ago in the University of Sussex in England, because a biologic, a biology teacher said that * is biology.

00:06:57 --> 00:07:05

So How dare you say something like this? So the students were demonstrating, wanting him to retrieve the statement and then you read the Quran.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:14

In at least seven different places. The Quran makes this reference the Halacha men whose XO Jane is

00:07:15 --> 00:07:27

Jah, XO Jane is Zakharova Hala canal comienza. Quran, the Quran and state the obvious, the two sexes, male and female

00:07:28 --> 00:07:45

biology, they say that any species that reproduce sexually they are dimorphic meaning that there are two sexes. And these sexes are males and females and their characteristics are visibly distinguished from each other.

00:07:46 --> 00:08:01

And in any species that reproduce sexually, it is the female that delivers and that's where again, Allah subhanaw taala seems to be stating the obvious Allah Who ya allah mama,

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


00:08:05 --> 00:08:21

Allah is aware of what every female bears in the womb. Wallah who are coming to Robin sama men not fat and some Naja Allah as well. We're Mata

00:08:22 --> 00:08:42

wala todo elaborated me it is Allah who has created you from dust, and then from a drop, and then Allah made you into different into pairs. And no female carries to full term or abort before that. But Allah subhanaw taala is aware of it.

00:08:43 --> 00:08:57

Now Allah is not telling us that we Muslims believe this. We believe it scientifically, we believe it theologically. And remember that biology is not bigotry.

00:08:58 --> 00:09:21

Biology is not bigotry. People can believe whatever they want to believe. By the end of the day, especially when it comes to these topics. Our metric is what Allah said, what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught semi now what Atlanta your Allah we heard, we obey and we will abide we will abide by.

00:09:23 --> 00:09:59

In our deen we are taught that * is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that with the proper intention. * is actually an act of worship. And the Hadith of the Prophet peace be upon him is speaking about different ways of giving charity. And then he sallallahu alayhi wasallam said well, and yet here are how to come share what the hook for in the hula Hosoda for one of you to vent their sexual pleasure with their spouse, that is considered to be an act of charity sadaqa so people said you

00:10:00 --> 00:10:49

Hola Hola. Yeah T 100 sure what the whole fake tube hola hola who behind a euro? So prophet of Allah, one of us would actually vent out their sexual desire and Allah who would reward them for this. Remember what the people are asking is this is so personal, this is pleasurable. This is just for me. How do you get rewarded for this? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, had he done the same thing he or she done the same thing with somebody that was unlawful to them, would it not be recorded against them as a sin? Yes, sir. Therefore, he said that just been venting your energy in this way, said sadaqa. It is an act of charity that Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards us for it. So

00:10:49 --> 00:11:47

as believers, we don't shy away from stating these beliefs, especially given what is going on nowadays. Especially given in what is going on nowadays. Where many times Mustafa Muhammad Allah, Allah Allahu Kalama, Jamila, your Olivia, yet is a man. Allah, a halal happy, y'all know Nephi and know who Murjani Lee Farah al bakr LiFi bottling Allah Rahmatullah. alayhi wa Rahmatullah his beautiful soul. Dr. Mustafa, the late Mustafa Muhammad said that there will be a time when holders of the truth would think of themselves to be insane or crazy. Because people who promote falsehood are so confident and sure and assertive and explicit in the way that they promote the self this this

00:11:47 --> 00:12:01

falsehood that the people are just going to think, Am I crazy or what? Man I need to look this over? Is it really to success? I mean, that's what I've always thought. But now people are just questioning everything that that much

00:12:02 --> 00:12:53

two things that we want to learn from Luke Alayhis Salam Luthor Alehissalaam comes he invites His people alerta tacos in the La Cumbre Smolen Amin Tacoma Hawa after your own man alikom Allah human agent in Nigeria Illa Allah Rob Bill al Amin, tunas, the Quran, Amin, Al Al Amin, whatever Runa mahalo que la cumbre as well as you belong to Oman, Pa who comes and he presents himself. I am a messenger of Allah, I seek nothing but your own good. I do not seek any reward from you. My reward rests with Allah subhanho wa Taala and then he points out what he sees at the chronometer. Alameen Do you vent your less your lust your sexual Allah studies on fellow males? What as

00:12:55 --> 00:13:35

as well as you come, and you leave what Allah has created for you, your mates that Allah Subhana Allah has created for you. And then he said, Well unto Amata own you have crossed all bounds. And then the answer came and they said, Allah, Allah Tala in Lambton, Tehila takuna. Nominal more Jaime Minmatar Jumi they said, Look, if you do not stop, you shall be an outcast. We will drive you out. Nowadays Subhanallah if you speak against this doesn't matter what profession you are. It is seen as a an act of suicide.

00:13:36 --> 00:14:07

The other day I was talking to one of our beloved professionals here who are in the medical field, said during pride month, you know, everybody's supposed to show their support. And we were given masks to wear. We're given these masks to wear. But the masks that was given to the doctors, to the nurses to the hospital staff, it all had the rainbow because you know, this is this is pride month, this is, you know, you're supposed to show your support. And he said it just happened to be that I was just wearing a regular mask.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:26

This is the doctor, he said I was reprimanded. I was called in by the administration. Why are you not supporting? Do you have something against these people? And at that point, it came to be looking at you do not even have the option of saying look, I don't believe this.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:34

I do not this is not part of my belief. This is not something that I want to support that letter Coonan nominal module mean

00:14:35 --> 00:14:50

usual indeed be of those who are outcast. You will be fired. You will be reprimanded, you will be expelled. It is almost it is an act of suicide.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:51


00:14:53 --> 00:14:59

the LM tanta hill at Akona nominal merge you mean all in Neely, Amelie Camino Oh,

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

While in the loop Alehissalaam decides he is going to make public when he stands in nearly American middle Colleen, I utterly abhor your practice.

00:15:15 --> 00:15:18

I'm sorry, I don't care about your feelings.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:23

My job is to uphold the truth, not your feelings.

00:15:24 --> 00:15:27

Because you felt it, it does not mean that it's a fact.

00:15:28 --> 00:15:40

Feelings are not facts. I am not going to go out of my way and intentionally hurt your feelings. But if stating facts is going to hurt your feelings, then be it.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:46

Because facts did not come to respect feelings.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:49

And the thing is,

00:15:50 --> 00:16:09

I can't really water down what wash sugarcoat facts simply because of your feelings. quani that's a very, very slippery slope. When you go on that slope, that is very, very slippery, your own interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:13

Men are the NASA

00:16:14 --> 00:16:42

Oh, man as hoppin NASA buried Allah He, Radi Allahu wa urban NASA. Whosoever pleases Allah, even if it could be at the expense, or at the risk of displeasing people, Allah will be pleased with them, and Allah who will eventually cause people to be pleased with them. Because people respect people who are principled.

00:16:43 --> 00:17:33

You I may disagree with you, and you may know it and I say to your face, I respect this person. Because this person at least they're clear, they tell me the truth that they believe in. And then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, woman as hot Allah, buried on nurse socket, Allahu Allah, He what has happened, nurse it and whosoever pleases people, at the expense of displeasing Allah subhanaw taala, Allah will be displeased with them, and Allah will cause the people to be displeased with them. So Allah Allah rasool Allah is a very slippery slope, man. When you go on thinking that public opinion is the most important opinion, that is very dangerous.

00:17:34 --> 00:18:14

That is very dangerous when we do that. Remember, there was a meeting Muslims or non Muslims sitting together? And you know, this is people getting to know they've never met a Muslim before. So they're asking, Where do you stand on this? Where do you stand on that? And then the issue of homosexuality came up where the Muslims stand on homosexuality. So the people went first was a Christian congregation, they said, Well, you know, historically speaking, we were against it. But now we have changed our position. Now our place is open. And you know, we have openly gay priests and what have you. And then some of the Muslims sitting there, they felt that they're just sounding better than

00:18:14 --> 00:18:20

us. So somebody said to them, he said, Well, you know, Islam has not progressed yet.

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


00:18:23 --> 00:18:33

Islam has not progressed yet. As if progress means making what Allah has deemed to be haram, making it halal, that is progress.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:35

That's a catastrophe.

00:18:36 --> 00:19:04

Then look at the histogram for the sake of time look at the histogram then makes another statement. Once he made that public, Indiana documented, Colleen, I utterly applaud what you do. Then he said, Robina, Jeanne, what early me Maya Malone said, My Lord, save me and my family, from what these people are doing. Wallahi this should be a dua that we repeat every single day.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:29

You'll know what I'm talking about. Your Allah save me and my family, from what these people are doing. Remember, one time we said that parenting our job as parents is what is to protect and prepare our children to thrive and survive in the society that our children will live in.

00:19:30 --> 00:19:39

Where I choose to protect my children from is going to be determined by the society that they are living in

00:19:40 --> 00:19:59

the society that they're living in nowadays, everything goes and everything goes from the get go. Young kids, man, young kids would be coming to school 5678 year old kid saying that I was a boy but now I am this and you know, everybody is

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

Celebrating that you would be filling out an application. Some of us have seen if not all of us have seen this, the application usually asks when it comes to * male or female. Now the question is, what was your assigned * at birth? The * is not assigned, * is revealed.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:38

* is announced, show that the doctor sat there and know the doctors looked and they said, based on what we see, boy, girl, male, female, what was your *? You know, what was what was your assigned * app at birth.

00:20:39 --> 00:20:45

Kids from young ages, books are written to them so that they accept this.

00:20:46 --> 00:20:52

See, this is not * education. This is indoctrination.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:09

And when we see this, my brothers and sisters, as responsible parents, we have a responsibility. Robin urging you early Maya Angelou, my Lord saved me and my family from what these people are doing.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:39

And please remember when we make our when we make our stance clear, especially nowadays, see the fact that people sin that includes every single one of us here. And by no means we are saying that we are better because we come to the masjid or because we attend this or we do not engage in this behavior. We all have skeletons in our closets. May Allah Subhana Allah continue to shower us with His grace by concealing our faults? Yara Alameen.

00:21:41 --> 00:22:26

Some of our brothers and sisters are struggling with this will Allah He may Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for them will lie. May Allah make it easy for them. Some people are genuinely and I tell you this in the capacity of a * therapist, I tell you, many people reach out and say, Allah here I am struggling with this. I have nothing Wallahi but empathy and compassion in my heart for these brothers and sisters. May Allah make it easy for them. Europa aalameen Some people are engaged in it, some people are inclined towards it. That's not where the problem is. The problem is when people try to justify this and make it Islamically acceptable. That's when we draw the line and say no, no,

00:22:26 --> 00:23:14

no, no, no, that is not how it works. That is not how it works. That is not you can say what you want. Just don't just don't bring that and call that Diem. That is not the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and there should be no compromise about this whatsoever. And should be very clear to us. That when it comes to this, there is no compromise in our dean for that. Never thought Subhanallah my life that there will be a day when we would actually dedicate a hotbar to remind people that this is haram that Islam does not accept this. You think that these things are so common sense and maybe it's common sense for all of us. Insha Allah sitting here, but there's been so much talk about it so

00:23:14 --> 00:23:32

much pressure on the people that many times people feel like you know what, maybe who knows, people feel like giving in May Allah Subhana Allah protect us all the love hunt and protect our children. May Allah Subhana Allah increases in understanding our bill al Amin of hola hola Hi there, what stops you Allah Hi welcome First of all in the whole of

00:23:46 --> 00:23:47


00:23:48 --> 00:23:58

wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hill Mustafa wylam, and be Eartha haka. Now, usually when we, when we speak about this topic,

00:23:59 --> 00:24:25

got to be very gentle. When you speak into the people, very firm, when you are stating what it is that we believe and where it is that we stand. And when I say gentle mean talking about this, young brothers and sisters who are struggling with their sexual orientation are at the highest risk of committing suicide.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:30

I don't want to be the person that pushes people away.

00:24:32 --> 00:24:40

People come into this masjid and like I said, we all have our own skeletons in our closets. Our job is not to find out what people do.

00:24:42 --> 00:24:59

Our job is not to find out what people do. People who are engaged in this behavior are still Muslims who are engaged in it. They're still Muslims, they're still invited to come to the to the masjid and we pray for them that may Allah subhanaw taala help them with this struggle of this

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

Talking about people who have these inclinations. They're struggling with activities, people who are actively engaged in it, and you know that what they are doing is wrong. May Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for them. Where we draw the line is when people try to Islam besides this, or to say that Islam is okay with it, we're not okay with it. It doesn't matter how many people out there, dude, that is not that that is not a reference point. Or as they say, Right is right, even if no one is doing it, and wrong is wrong. Even if everyone is doing it. It's not a big deal to be right when everybody else is right. It's a big deal to be right. When everybody else is wrong. When everybody

00:25:48 --> 00:26:35

else is wrong, that's when you that's when it's a big deal. For us to be for us to be right. This is not a license to dehumanize people to look down upon people. But this is a reminder that we have a responsibility. Number one to remember where it is that we stand. And number two, the fact that there is this overwhelming cultural acceptance, pressure on our youngsters, we need to be talking about these topics. That is in sha Allah, we will have a class here in our Masjid. We will be starting the classes tomorrow at Mr. Rahman, but inshallah we will have these classes here in our message as well, where we speak like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke, and Besant is

00:26:35 --> 00:27:25

this woman died in 1933. She was an activist that fought fought for women's rights. She said of all the people that spoke about * openly and honestly, is the prophet of Islam. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said nobody spoke about it honestly and openly. Like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam did the Quran is not afraid of speaking about these topics, but like we have said many times the Quran is a very brave book, read by a lot of cowards, that is us. These are we are the cowards that are reading the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. May Allah subhanaw taala increases in understanding our bill Aileen May Allah Subhana Allah protect our families. Yara Alameen May Allah

00:27:25 --> 00:28:04
