In 1998, a loss of control who was Allah guided him to Islam
embracing Islam it's been doing a lot of our both in the United States of America

And he'll be talking about the best job in the world, literally shala we're going to speak about these activities, which will also be making a fundraising for themselves.
Mr. ecomondo law to Medicare.
Way too many people in here for me to be louder than you even with the microphone. Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
attempt to lead them in Hungary legendary of Salvador Sulu, Bill Houdini, Daniel hoppin the user of Allah de nikoli vocabulary shahidan cinema Baraka Mohammed via Allah he was he as main woman when early on was dean, when I should do in LA Hey, ma, ma, de vous la sharika. Why shadow Amina Mohammed Abu Abu.
inshallah, the last time I was here, I think I told my story about how I came to Islam correct. My memory is not failing me yet. And that is
today, the topic of the best job in the world, realistically is one that is quite easy for me. But I'm going to try to make it as easy for you to understand in sha Allah.
I want you to answer this question first, before I even tell you why and the what and the ins and outs and have nots.
Who was the best human being to ever walk the face of the earth?
Is there any difference of opinion about this matter? The Prophet Muhammad Ali was dealing with the best human being the one that faces there.
What was the occupation of the best human being that ever walked the face of this earth?
What was his occupation? occupation means lifelong. What was his career?
How many people agree with that? Love isn't he was good as an era, how many people would agree with that? That was the occupation of that person on the face of the earth was that he was a call to Allah.
How many people's hands way up?
A fifth column that
has happened? No, no.
That's actually the point of the topic today
is the best job in the world can be no better than the occupation of the best person to ever walk the face of the earth to say that any job is better than the full time occupation of the best human beings ever on the face of the earth, you know, would be a bit silly. But unfortunately, that understanding and the correct position upon that has really been lost. And in not just this generation, but many generations that have passed because of the condition we see now. The condition we see now the Muslim, is it one of great dignity and honor or is it one of complete humiliation, the entire the entire oma we're talking about the entire
we are in a place of humiliation or in a place of honor and dignity,
humiliation and one of the reasons we are
In this state of being weak in the state of being oppressed in this state of being humiliated, is because we have lost the position and the complete in proper understanding of this job, which is the job that the messenger of Allaah symbolizes instead of them fulfilled perfectly for 23 years.
tells us very clearly in the Quran and I'm going to focus on two verses alone. And then I'm going to tell you an analogy a very beautiful story. And then we will be finished in one take some q&a inshallah.
A lot of question in the Quran, a lot this woman, woman, woman asked to come in and Daria Malala I met assaulted her have fallen in aluminium swimming. Allah asked a question in the Quran, who can be better woman asked and who can be better than one whose speech is calling to Allah, while he or she is the durable goods, while they are do of good themselves? And they clearly proclaim to the people Indeed, I am one of the Muslims. Now when Allah asks the question, in this sense, a general question woman has done a lot of things, who can be better? Who can be better than the one who does such and such? What does this mean to us?
What do you infer from this? Who can be better? When Allah is asking who can be better? Then Allah is saying no one is better. Allah is saying in a question form. This is the best of people. When he says woman, and he's telling us no one in His sight is better than the one whose speech is calling to Allah as the Virgin, meaning calling people to believe in Allah alone, to say that is a high Lama. And not only are they calling to Allah, but their action reflect that which they call them to their actions reflect that which they're calling to why
they're doing that which they're calling other people to believe in. And the last point is somewhat of a psychological approach, it's somewhat of a psychological understanding will fall in any minima, the mean, and they proclaimed, they are in need of the Muslims. That doesn't mean that you have to run around every single day, you know, talk stopping everyone in the street at normal Muslim, do you know I'm a Muslim, as you know, I'm a Muslim, do you know I'm a Muslim, does not really mean that.
What it means is basically that you are clearly a Muslim, there is no doubt about your allegiance to Islam. Anyone who has any chance to look at you and spend any time observing you, they would have no doubt about your position that you are a Muslim. They can just observe you. People can just see you and know you're Muslim or not. And I'm not talking about you put on a fold. That's not what I mean. And I'm not talking about all of these things. It is your action, how you act, how you present yourself, because those of you who know you have been trying to be the best person that you can be. There's just something about you that sticks out. There's something about you that resonates out of
you. I can be dressed in a plaid shirt and jeans and Muslims are walk around or they'll get to them just because of how I present myself. It is with that attitude that I'm a Muslim. And that reflects off of you because it is the answer that Allah azza wa jal gives to the believer, someone who is striving to be a believer in sha Allah. So Allah says, woman asked, and this means no one can be better than this person. So if someone is saying that the best job in the world is as I give me some evidence behind this, the first evidence is a lot argenis word very clearly, no one is better than someone who is doing this job. And we are going to explain why there's a jump in sha Allah to iron.
Also, we have the verse the very famous verse, all of you know from
what Allah Allah says, although elusive eradicable Hekmati Hasina with gentilhomme Villa to hear
a lot is called into the way of the Lord with wisdom and with good speech and discourse with them in a way that is best and then a lot goes on to say he knows those best for guidance, he knows those who are straight.
The very first word of this is gives us the importance of the statements, the word, the URL, which is coming from the same word there our there are many to call or to invite to something, but in the context of this word, the word or the old text, what form what linguistic form do we have?
We have the form of an hombre a comment. Now whenever I speak in a monotone
Does this mean that we have any option in the matter doesn't mean that may be for you and for you it might not be for you and for some Not unless a lot specifically points out a certain people.
And a lot does not point out anyone specifically in his eye and he says although it's a bit of a beacon didn't have much. He just says call it to the way if I was a general amorous to everyone, correct
Everyone everyone believing in this revelation has been given a comment from Allah, Virgin. So this command is something that Allah is not giving you an option about yes or no.
The same like Allah has commanded us, or Pema salam, and offensive sissala. It is the same exact
level. Now if Allah
commands us to something, there are two things that come with any command from Allah as virgin. Does anyone know those two things?
No, no, that comes with a hammer.
If you do it or don't do it,
reward or punishment comes with a reward for doing it. And a punishment for not doing it. I reward for doing it and a punishment for not doing it yes or no. Even though Allah could just commanded to do things, he doesn't have to reward it for as reward we get from a lot is a net my friend, he's, he could command this and not give us anything for it. And we would still have to do it, there would be no option about de nada. But Allah says if you do it, there'll be a reward. And if you don't do it, there will be a punishment. Now with Dell, I want to show you before we get to the analogy, I want to show you the greatness of the reward. And I want to show you the greatness greatness of the
warning of punishment. And the greatness of the reward. I can just say woman asked me Llandeilo, I'm so sorry. How does the reward the law says you're the best of people. But I want to speak in more of a language that we will all understand in a business terms. Have any of you ever heard of network marketing? Anybody ever heard of the business called network marketing, raise your hand. It can also be referred to as a pyramid business. Anybody heard of a pyramid business? For the pyramid business? Now what apparently, is I have a board to write on. So you'll have to visualize the pyramid business. So let's say I'm selling, I'm selling was very good water, Mashallah.
And in this business of selling water, I am the circle at the top, I represent a circle. Now, let's say I sell water to people, and they really like this water. So I tell them, you know, what, if you really like this water, why don't you start selling water as well. And now there's two circles underneath, we built with a little triangle correctly, called the perimeter, whatever you want to. Now, these two people are selling water. And they are making a profit for themselves. Correct. But because I brought them into the business, I also make profit off of these things, because I brought them in. And now let's say these two people underneath, they decided this guy usually has a very
good thing going here. So they go and get two people, each one of them. Now the pyramid consists of one person at the top me, the two people that are under me, and now four on the bottom row. But even the for the bottom row, this selling water, and they're making income, but the two people on top of them, brought them in, so they're making profit off of them. But I also was the reason they came into the business, the fourth the bottom, because the two brought them and I brought the two, so all of the profits are going up. Correct. And that pyramid can grow exponentially. They can be 100 on the bottom row, but still, whoever's at the top is getting the most benefit from all of that
correct? Yes or no? So good business, right? Sounds like a very good thing to be in after a while you wouldn't have to sell anymore. Once you have enough people in the triangle under you, you could just sit at home and watch the money roll in. You can be the CEO all you do is sit home and make decisions.
Now what is the best form of network marketing on a pyramid business when it comes to happiness, when it comes to good deeds? Why? Because the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said it in their authentic narration.
Those who call to guidance, those who give Dawa who call to guidance, they receive the rewards of the guidance, one, without the reward of the guidance, one being lost. What does this mean? This means that when I give Dawa, there are two types of data.
Correct? When it comes to the hedaya there's two types one guidance is two types. This is a hidayatullah which is our obligation to convey the truth or obligations are going to be the truth is a part of the day. Then there is the day photography, which is the hidayah that gives the person the ability to accept Islam and that comes only from Allah azza wa jal when he opens their breasts, but when you do your job of conveying the message, and someone comes to Islam, someone comes to Islam. According to the narration, the possibility of dilemma physically, you receive the rewards of the guidance one, meaning the one who comes to Islam, you receive the reward without their reward being
lost. Meaning that if someone comes to Islam and you gave them down, whenever they make so long,
it is as if you made
a lot of likes it on your skin as if you make a lot because you were the person who helped this one come to Islam whenever
This person gives us it's as if you gave out whenever this person does any good deed, it is as if you did that good deed because you initiated the guidance. Now, when it comes to the bad knees, that's all of them. They're all on that one, you don't share that you share the reward of the person. So in that scheme of things, if you truly call someone to Islam, and they accept Islam, how do you know that person couldn't go on to be the next year, so that person could go on to be the next decade, or whoever wants, and they go on the call, hundreds and maybe 1000s and 10s, of 1000s of people to Islam. And here you are sitting on the top of that pyramid, correct, because you called
this person to Islam. And now maybe before you know it, there are 10s of 1000s, maybe hundreds of 1000s. And by the time you meet you a lot, as much as it could have been millions of people under that pyramid, because of that one person you gave down to. And that entire scheme of people, all of their good deeds are coming in trickling up to you, even if you've been dead, and you're brave and turned to dust, you could still be ticking good deeds on your scale, because we do know that the properties that are close to them. And there's another authentic narration that backs this up, he said when you go to the grave, what stays with you,
your deed and what can continue to benefit you after your death.
kajaria meaning that which you have given, which continues to benefit people, and when you give the power to someone and accept this land is a form of setup of God, because it is something that you gave out that continues to benefit someone the same as if you get not as it continues to benefit people. This is considered a software from jariya, or you build something that people continue to benefit from.
It is the same. So you will continue to receive that award even after you're done. And it may be that you maybe have
who knows all of us may be in the condition when we are raised in front of a lot of agendas. We don't really know our position. Our position may be you know, we might be okay. We might not that scale might be a little bit too even, you know, we might be a little bit worried that there might not be a good enough tip towards the good. How do you know that those people who you gave our to accepted Islam, and maybe went on to do great things? Maybe what else to do things you would have never been able to do in less time. Maybe they will call 10 people into Islam 100 people into Islam, and those 100 people, 10 people, 50 people, 1000 people, maybe they will continue to do so much good
that there is no way you could outdo them in that.
So you never know that that one person you talk to that one person you go and you give data to or one person who enters your shop, you give them a pamphlet about Islam, or you invite them to a lecture you invite them to the masjid, who knows that that might be the deed that could fit the scale towards your good deeds and going to gym, they could erase every bad thing that you've done. You never know. You never know this is the benefit about Dawa is that the deed itself? Allah says women often no one is better than this. And number two, the amount of reward is so exponential that you can't even begin to quantify it, you can't quantify it. Because think about it. I'm not trying
to put myself an example because I don't do that much good. But it was a drug dealer.
As all of you know my story of the drug dealer who gave me that hour and all he did was suddenly go to the masjid. But now he is receiving all of the rewards and every good that I do and if he dies upon there is a high Bala plea and a lot of jealous accepting of Islam, a low item what could be his condition in the hereafter no matter about the buttons done, he's done in this life. Hopefully, I'm hoping that maybe I can do some good. Or maybe someone else that I helped bring to Islam will do enough good to help this brother both of gentlemen. And how beautiful of a day would that be for me to meet him and Jana, and for him to have realized that his ticket to Jelena was talking to that
little young, white guy in his home in 1998. This is the golden ticket that we don't know we might be wasting away every single day. We don't know who you talk to, you may look at this person that you see in your shop every day and say, you know, this person's not really right. You know, he's not really, he's not really receptive to what I'm trying to tell him. How do you know that that person a lot as we just cannot firm his heart and he become the next door is of his age, he could become the next scholar of Islam. As a general Minos. Allah as virgin only knows, because the Prophet race was granted those who are best in dunya. They are the ones who are going to be the best indeed.
So we have to look at this a different way with a different perspective, that this is not just a job for the jocks who have chosen this to be a profession. This is not just a job for the emails of the Masters because normally
You have been busy enough as it is doing everything else in the world, dealing with all of our problems. It is not just a job for the CEO because the CEO has spending enough time trying to teach us a deal. This is a job that is upon everyone. If Allah has given us the competitive job upon everyone, because we know the profit of Easter, so Sam also authentically said, valuable only relate from me even if it is only one I tell something about me relate something from me, even if it's only one verse from the Quran. So this lets us know that all of us have a role to play. All of us have a role to play it. I'm just speaking specifically. I mean, January before we get specific, everyone
has a role to play. Is there anyone in here that does not know at least one verse of the Quran? Is there anyone here that doesn't know how to pick up a pamphlet about Islam and hand it to another person? Is there anyone in here that cannot tell another person if you really want to know about Islam, he has a good website you can go to Is there anyone not capable of that, then we're all blameworthy in this regard. Because we all have an obligation to do.
I want to give you the flip side of it, because the reward is a massive and are based upon this. One other thing I want to ask you, based upon this, the person received the reward of the guy that runs out the reward of the guy that was being lost. What is the pinnacle?
asked in Islam. What is the highest act in Islam?
The best thing you can do
is to be the fit for the sake of another resource that is the pinnacle of Islam. And someone who dies in that way they are known as
a Shaheed. Where do they need to go when they die?
They go to gender directly correct? milliliters Jana, there is no question about this. As far as the Jetta has given them a beautiful position in front of himself. How do you know that someone you don't call to Islam, they die in front of a bar as well as the shade.
How do you know that having that how do you know maybe three people you've called to Islam die in this condition five people, six people, and you will still be getting this on your account. You don't know the amount of reward you could be missing every single day that is just being wasted away. But if the reward is greater than what would you consider to be on the flip side?
If the reward for something is very great.
Then what would it be the flip side of abandoning
a small punishment just a little bit of a warning. Normally they will match each other if there is a great reward. There's also going to be a great punishment.
A lot of bells and whistles Obara, I think it is 159, if I'm not mistaken, is 169 where Allah azzawajal gives a warning.
He warns those who conceal those who conceal my proofs and evidences after I have made it clear for them in the book. They are cursed by Allah, and by those who curse unless and except they repent, and they reveal that which they have been concealing for truly I will accept their repentance I am the one who accepts the repentance of the people and I am the Most Merciful. Now whom was a lot as an industry who is this initially revelations speaking of who are the great concealers of a lot of truths.
Bani Israel are masters in this respect. They are master magicians when it comes to a love simulation Believe me.
That's the Prophet alayhi salatu salam also warned us in an authentic narration. After me you will follow them.
foot by foot cubic by cubic maybe inch by inch you will follow them even so much so that if they jump into the hole of a lizard, you go right after them. And the companions asked him who are you speaking about euro Sumo law, the Jews and the Christians. He said who knows whom you will follow them you do what they're doing.
When it comes to this warning, I am afraid this ummah is holding a big burden upon this. Because
there are more ways to conceal the truth from Allah as a gentleman just telling lies about Allah, there are more ways of concealing it than just wiping out the revelation and changing it. There's more ways this is this is an overt way. They did it overtly. Many prayers in a very overt mission when it comes to changing loves revelation.
We unfortunately do it very covertly. We do it very covertly. Because we know that
speaking the truth is something that not only Allah azza wa jal has told us to many places in the Quran for me to make mention of them, but specifically the muscles of the body within them. When they say regularly. He would quote the verse Yeah, are you held Edina menos de la havapoo colenso de de la cama como una
Welcome, oh you will believe fear Allah and save that which is correct. Say something to the right to the truth will be truthful in your speech. Be truthful in your speech. By doing so Allah will guide you to righteous deeds and he will forgive you your sins. Now.
If we hear the book of Omar as well being ridiculed, if we hear the character of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam being slandered if we see the deen of Allah being mocked, the is of a lot being ridiculed, and we remain silent. Are we or are we not just as guilty?
are we are we not just as guilty as those spreading the lies? If we remain passive, even though we have the ability to act,
or we are guilty, of course, we are guilty, because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam also gave us another command. When you see a sharp when you see an evil, what did he say? Change it, forget about the three levels we'll talk about in a moment. But he said changes. When you see an evil change, it
changes either with your hand, which is the most honorable of those ways. If you do not have the ability or the strength to do so changes with your speech. If you don't even have that ability in your two weeks, then it leaves the test that in your heart. But for us to continue to use this excuse of the testing in the heart is not flying anymore. Because someone who truly hates something in their hearts
is the moment the opportunity Arise for them to do something they will do. For someone that say I hate something in my heart so vehemently, but then you are given the opportunity to address it and you remain silent. That apparently your hatred is not that deep. Your anger can't be that deep or you would have done something. So for us this excuse that, oh, we're so weak. We're so weak. We can do anything. Then apparently, if you're too weak to defend the the deen of Allah azza wa jal Do you have no business being here. And I have to be clear with you, I did not travel all the way from the states to just water to water things down in Sweden, that can be free. No, because the law says in
the Quran, that there will be some who will be asked on the day of judgement
about not striving in his way, they will say we will we won't pass we have no chance. And Allah will ask them was not my Earth spacious enough for you to go somewhere where you can do it properly. So if you aren't really truthful about the fact that you're so weak here in the UK, you are so you know, humiliated that you have not even the voice to speak anymore, then you really don't need to be here anymore. It's really become too much for you, you need to go somewhere where you may begin do a little bit more. But I don't think that is the case. I don't think that is the case. I think the problem with a lot of Muslims in the West, and the West, including the UK, including America is that
we are not taking advantages of the freedoms that have been afforded to us in these countries. because believe it or not, and for anyone, most of you coming from different countries, and even Muslim countries, and I've had the opportunity with Henry law, to travel extensively around the globe. You and I live in some of the best places on the world when it comes to having the ability to change some of the best places in the world. Because you are afforded rights here and you were afforded rights in the United States to be able to do things under the guise of the Constitution of America under the guise of the statutes of the UK that you cannot do in most Muslim countries. Yes
or no. lectures like I'm giving you right now in some Muslim countries would cause me to disappear forever. You will probably never see me again after time. And that's just the truth of the matter. And change is very hard. But we are living in fertile ground. You are living in a place where the ground is very fertile. People are tired of being fed garbage. 24 hours a day, seven days a week this fed up with it. We have seen you've seen it with the riots in London, you've seen it with the the we are changed. I don't know if any of you are keen on some of the things going on America. America is ripe for change. Right now. We are changing movements, the Occupy Wall Street occupy Main
Street to get rid of the Federal Reserve people are really tired of being trampled upon and being fed like cattle. They're really tired of having their rights stripped from them, even though the very constitution they live under affords them those rights which are being taken from them. So we really have to wake up to this idea that we are living in a place where we can do some great goods. This is a place when it comes to
if you wanted to separate the entire world into two
Gemma has to you have the land the Muslims and then you have
you have the nation of those the people whom we need to be putting the effort to calling them into Islam and here living in a place
This for you and I, we know a lot of evil comes out of these two places, we just have to be clear about it, there's a lot of evil that happens that directly affects the Muslim world that comes out of the two heads of where we are living.
Now Allah sent his messages. Where did he usually send them? Did he send them to the outskirts of humanity to where almost no one was existing? Did he send them to Bosnia, you know, way out in the middle of nowhere? Or did he send them in the middle of the evil?
Where did he usually send it
into the thick of the evil into the thick of everything. When he said mostly, he said, they said,
when the Prophet he set up the salon planted directly in Mecca, all of the profits, if we look at the way that a lot of jettisons His prophets and messengers, he would send them into the midst of the worst places on earth, because this is the heart where change can happen. Because if you can affect change in those areas, then those areas going to affect everything else. When the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam was able to affect change in Mecca, and Medina, these two things went on these two cities went on to influence the entire world went on to influence the entire world as we know it. And so if we're living in what a lot of people like to say, all the hardest evil, for them,
this is the place where we need to make change. This is the place where we need to do the most work. Because if we can do some good here, then good that is done here will trickle over to good all over the world. It will directly affect countries all over the world. And a lot of Muslim countries. Whether you would like to know it or not. When you when I traveled to these countries, guess what they are looking to for help?
What do you think they are looking to and asking the Muslims to help them? Look into the Muslims in the West. They say you have the most in either the most affluent of us. You guys have the most sensitive bus you have the most educated the bus you have the most wealthier, but you are living in the areas that directly affect the most what are the Muslims they're doing? This is the question I get asked so much. How is the devil going? How is it that we're doing this, we need a lot of help. And they were telling me remind those brothers that we need the help. We need the help, we can affect much change here. But the change you do there will trickle down and affect us here. So I want
to give you a small analogy because I'm not going to be too lengthy.
Let's say I have a friend.
And the friend I have known him for a long time He is my dear friend and Muslim brother. We live together we're roommates. I'm just going to call him fool and for the sake of naming no one
LSA fool and has a serious disease. He has a serious disease that sincerely is one of the most horrible diseases any human being conceived. It is it is it isn't like a new novel disease. It is disease causing him pain 24 hours a day, seven days a week, he has trouble doing the most simple task. And this is not a terminal illness, not something that's just going to kill him off. It's something that persists with him for a long period of time it will stay with him as long as he stays alive. But he suffers every single day. And I have known for them for a while and I've seen him in this condition a lot at first you know it kind of shut you know I was a bit concerned. But after
seeing him like this for so long. I've become desensitized to his condition. I come home I see him sit on what he can do for them. And he's hurting so bad that he can barely even return my slams. He's rolling on the floor and pain. You know, I say How are you doing? I see hurting them pain I tell them you know love us to hold it in sha Allah May Allah azza wa jal he'll give you you know purity incense from yourself. Like going into my room. You know, I don't really when people ask me how he is I the same. nothing's really changed. But don't you worry. Okay. I think he's gotten used to it by an audience.
And this is just the way I am with him. Now let's say someone comes to me one day and gives me a pill, a tablet, and says if you give this tablet to falam, it will completely cured him of his disease. He will not suffer from it anymore. It is 100% guaranteed to be a cure. All you have to do is give it to him get it to get him to take it. I say okay, I take the tablet and what do I do? I don't give it to him.
I don't know why I have my reasons. Number one, I'm too busy. I'm too busy. I have two jobs. I am going to school. I have so many things going on. I don't really have time to be messing with for lunch. Just I'm too I'm too busy. Number two, I'm not a doctor. I'm not qualified. I'm not qualified to be prescribing him medicine.
He needs to go to the doctor. If he wants to get this medication or the doctor needs to come to him. I'm not the qualified person to be given him the tablet. Number three phoolan is is a little bit stubborn. I've known him for a while he's stubborn. I'm going to have to
Are you with him, maybe for hours or days a week, just to convince him to take this, this silly tip. So why even waste my time I don't have time. I am completely busy, and he's ignorant and stubborn. So I'm not going to waste my time trying to force it upon him, I throw it in my drawer, in my in my dresser drawer or, and I just forget about it, and I don't give it to him, whatever. And he never gets this tablet. He continues to live with this disease, and he ends up dying with this disease.
Now, hypothetically, and this is something that some of the organizations that run and speak of things, hypothetically, hypothetically, if this was true, do you think when Allah azza wa jal raises all everyone, on the day of judgment? Do you think of our agenda is going to question me about food?
Do you think are going to question me about food? And?
Yes, hypothetically, he would question me about flat. Why? Because I have wronged. I wronged my brother. I was innocent, because I saw him in a condition that I couldn't change. I had every capacity within me to change it. And I didn't even make the effort. I didn't even make the effort. So I allowed him to continue to suffer. So for sure, I have wronged him. And if he wished, if he wished he could have chosen to take his right back. He has done me wrong, I want my right back. And how would a lot of take is right back? How would I give him his right back? Now we've dead and we've raised them to life? How am I going to give him as right?
I'm going to give him my good deeds.
I'm going to make it right with my husband.
And if I really oppressed him, I really made him suffer, then I might have to give a lot of my happiness. And what happens if I run out of minutes
that he will start giving me some of his evil deeds until we even and if that were the case, that I would run it across the net? Guess where I'm going?
Where do you go with no happiness?
goes to john, I must be purified. I must bear some punishment, because of this simple day that I decided not to give.
Yes, yes, it is that simple. It is that simple. But realistically if Poulin was a good Muslim, and he was patient with a lot of agenda, and he died in his condition of being patient with a lot, a lot of agenda could write him in front of himself as a city, a lot of good writing in front of himself. And he, he could be floating around agenda for all day long. And on the Day of Judgment, he could come before lunch, they got a lot. I forgave them a long time ago. So you forgive them. And we both could just March our way on into gentlemen, that is because we're both Muslim. Now.
That was a hypothetical situation. Do I do all of you know that every single one of you are in that situation right now? Every one of you, every single one of you are in that situation right now. And you know, more than one for
everyone that you come and count most not almost everyone's most of the people that you come in contact with every day here unless you just live in the masjid for some odd reason. Every almost everyone you come in contact with everyday as you're walking around the streets, they have a disease that is worse than the disease for worse, much worse. They have a disease that is much worse than the disease for land had.
And what is even worse about this disease is they don't even know they have most of them. Most of them have no clue that they're sick.
And most of them have no clue what is waiting for them. If they die with this disease, what kind of death is waiting for them?
And what disease am I talking about? We're talking about the disease of number one being ignorant about not even knowing who Allah is. Number two having shipped every day, they are worshiping something else other than Allah virgin. They are completely ignorant of what they are doing. They are living in a disease infested life, that if they die with this disease,
all of you have been Do any of you know the, the the events that await someone who dies with this disease? The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam
said when the Angel of Death comes to someone who has this disease, he doesn't come looking very nice. The Angel of Death defense, looking very frightened. And many, many, many angels accompany him and he will come from the sky descending, having in his hands,
having in his hands a shroud from Johanna that is made out of very rough hair, very rough skin even if it touches you, and it will be thinking and smell and he will present himself before this person and he will tell the person always
And, and, and, and, and despite so
and this soul with this disease will try everything within its capacity to escape it'll start running around in the body the soul starts running around. This is why when you see the disbelievers in the in the throes of death, they have this convulsive state with them because the soul is running, it doesn't want to come up. And then the the angel of death has to reach in and plug the soul. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam gave the analogy of that, as this, you take a bottle of wet wool, you insert a thorny branch into it and then remove the thorny branch, what happens, they're going to rip and tear all of that wool on the way out. This is the way that slowly comes
out. And properly there are two strands that that is so painful, that the effects of that death will be apparent on the faces of the people when they are raised and the date of resurrection, you will still see the pain, there will still be hurting from that. And then when that says comes out all of the angels that are around fanback no one wants to touch it. No one wants to touch it. It's just laying there. So the Angel of Death himself has to pick it up and shrouded in that awful thinking from from gender. And then that's all the Angel of Death tries to take to ascend to Allah. Because we know in the day, when knowledge of God, and when it reaches the first heavens, they will ask for
permission. And everyone is silent until a voice is heard from among the seven heavens, send it back, send us back despite the rejected from me, I don't even want to see it.
All you want to see it, I want us to send it back. And so the Angel of Death throws it into the grave, literally just flings it into the grave. And when it leaves to the grace, what will happen? Montana will appeal to it set it up as men are to say I don't know, I Jesus, Buddha that I don't know, I heard that people say this. There's no there's no real time for us to be quick. And if they don't answer correctly, what happens, the agent will smash them over the head with the iron, they will turn them into with a hammer that will turn them into dust. And then when they returned to the dusty to put them back together
who might be know what was your religion? They will not be able to answer the question correctly, they will get hit again. Whenever you they won't know, they won't have any idea that we hit again. And then they'll be laid back down in the grave. And then someone will come and sit next to them. And when the person in the grave sees that person, they will say oh my lord, what are you You are the most wicked, evil looking thing I have ever seen. What can you be, it will sit next to them and say I am your evil deeds here to keep you company. And so the Day of Judgment, that would be their confinement will be all the evil that they've done in this life. And then a door will open. And that
door will show them agenda will show them agenda, some hope, some glimmer of hope, Jenna, and then it will be told to them, this would have been your place has you believe this what has been your place had you believe, and then that door will be closed and sealed, never to be opened again. And then a door to jahannam will be opened. And it will be told because of your disbelief and your actions. This is going to be your home forever and that door stays open. And they continue to feel that fire until the day of judgment. And then they will be raised and resurrected. And stand before Allah with no excuse. And they will be thrown into Hellfire to never return. Never ever they're not
coming back. There's no hope for them. That is it. It is forever. Even when they are thrown into the Hellfire they pleased with a love please yeah, Allah, this causes us to die. What will the law say to them, don't speak to me. Don't even speak to me. I don't want to hear you anymore. And a barrier will be between them and everything. They'd be alone by themselves with this punishment for eternity. And you see these people every single day. They're right outside the Masters rack a walk right out right now, within 10 seconds, bring you one of them and show them to you. If they die with this disease that they have, then we know wait for them. But but the saddest part about that that's
not even the status part. That's not even the worst part. The worst part is that you possess the tablet the cure that you possess the cure, that is much easier than taking a tablet. And if any of you have taken any medication lately those some of those pills they give you those force pills that give you the doctors are very hard to swallow.
The wood is the cure for the disease.
How easy and light is the tongue to save.
The tongue doesn't even really have to move.
La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah could save them from this it would cure them instantly. That disease will leave them instantaneously and no trace of it will be left with no trace of it will even be left. It is all
But what are we doing with the pin? What are we doing with the cure?
We're keeping it to ourselves. We're keeping it to ourselves. Why are we have our excuses, we're too busy. You have too much going on. You got two jobs you got to do
you know too many things going on your life, you got a family, you got children, you you got so many things going on, Mashallah. To visit your hands even try to tell them that you're not qualified. Excuse me not qualified. I'm not a chef. I'm not a man another day, this is not my job. This is the job of those who are qualified. Well, as all of you should know, you're qualified right? Now. If you're sitting in this room, you're most likely qualified. Number three. Number three, their ignorance. These people are ignorant, they're stubborn. I don't even want to repeat some of the other things that we call them. They're ignorant, they're stubborn, and the others analysis, why do
we even waste our time with them? Why do we waste our time with them? Why do you waste your time with them? Because they were important to the Prophet Mohammed, somebody that said them, they were very important. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam was referred to later
not refer to me, he was a mercy to the world. And his worry, for the majority of his life was about what those people out there are going to end up how their soul is going to end up. That was this concern. He says, I am like someone who's standing on the edge of the fire, trying to warn people calling them don't, please don't go. And some of them, he said, I'm holding to the back of their government trying to prevent them. That's how much concern he had. He said, but they're persistent. And going into the fire anyway. This is how much concern our profit leaves that I've had. And I'm one day he was sitting around a fire with his companion.
And there was a child playing his fire. And whenever the fire was blazed up a little bit, the mother would reach and grab the child and pull it back to keep it from getting burned. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam began to cry. And when the companions asked him why he was crying, he said, Do you see the amount of love that this mother has for her child, but she doesn't want it to get burned by the fire? said yes. He said, Allah has much more love for every single soul that he created than his mother has for her child. But too many of his
souls and creations are persistent and going into the fire like moms that are attracted to a fire. So if this is how much a lot of love every single of his creation, if this is how much concern are received from the law, and they will send them had for the people and how important they work to him, then how important should it be to us? How important should it be just handing them to you? It's not up to you whether they take it or not? Correct? If the doctor gives you medicine, can he forced you to take it? No, he'll tell you, if you take this is going to maybe benefit you. But you don't have to take it they can't force PG medication. The same like you cannot force these people to
there is no compulsion in Islam. But that job of simply handing them the pill properly, and then leaving it up to them. That is your job. That is your job. It is all of our jobs properly. So that was to them left this this job. During his farewell sermon. What is the last statement of the farewell sermon I finished with Does anybody know the last day of the farewell sermon?
Come on now. This is the most authentic holiday we have from the popular religion know that the term is the most authentic narration that we have.
What is the last statement?
That's close almost the last statement
the last day that he made and it was narrated by Alma
Lowe, and he says those who are here today
convey this message to those that are not here. For truly it may be that the one who hears the message may understand the message better than the one who conveyed it to them. And then what happens? This is so monumental in our being that we fail to grasp this this is what some of the reasons we have reached this state of humiliation. What happened after the Prophet made this statement, what did he do?
He raised his fingers towards the heaven. And he said Oh, I love that witness. Oh Allah witness. Oh, I love that witness. I have indeed conveyed your message to them. And then what happened?
A lot of virgin decided on this day at this place upon this statement at this time in in all the expensive time. He decided this specific time
To reveal a young adult in
this day I have perfected your religion for you. And I have completed my favor upon you and chosen for you is to damage your DNA because when Omar heard this versary said it to him it is when he never does I know the day that this was revealed and told the story of the farewell sermon. It was on this day do you understand that brothers and sisters, that our Deen was completed upon the Prophet alayhi salatu salam handing the job that he did for 23 years to this?
Do you grasp that understanding? Why is that so important? Because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is the only only prophet to ever have done this. The torch that he held for 23 years was the torch of prophethood and messenger ship. That torch was only entrusted to prophets and messengers starting from the day he said I'm handed by prophet to prophets and messengers a message that's it. Every other nation was a law as a just as a sort of Sabina they were commanded not much to worship Allah was just make the religion sincere. For him a separate saw paisa was radical Dino Jima, this was the right way for them. This is the first woman that was given the men
and the Prophet beta that was when knew he was supposed to have another
field and the last messenger to come, but that torch had to go somewhere. Correct. People are going to continue to come in history, but no more problems are coming. So apparently Someone has to fill the gap. So he took that torch and handed it to this. That's what made this quantum reject leanness, the best nation ever developed for mankind. That's not a default just because you say live ama. Allah says that you are the best nation Why?
So our model has been an odyssey with 100 and woodcarver to be logical, you do the job of honorable La Mancha. You come into good, evil you believe in Allah, you do the job that only talk to the messengers had done. That is why your contemplado matunuck reject Linda and because we had failed to do the qualifications. We have not been that for a long time. We have not been that greatest nation for a long time. But it is always waiting for us. That position is reserved only for this ama. There is that that Allah gave to this ummah is almost unimaginable. When the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said even though you're the last on, Allah will put you where the Day of Judgment
first, first match you upfront and apart related to strength and you will be a witness over every other nation just like I will be a witness over every other nation. Do you understand the amount of that was given to you will not allow you to stand before Allah, Allah will ask enough? Did you convey my message will not say yes, I convey my message. What will a lot ask him?
Where's your witness? Do you have a witness? Who would not say his his witness?
He will say go to the father's
grave. And the problem is and Mohammed said the law they sent him to bear witness for me. The same was most of the same with the same as they said to the Father was the Mohammed they bear witness of me.
Because we indeed have the book and the revelation from a law that we believe in all of them. We can we can bear witness for every messenger. But yes, he did his job. How do I know because my messenger told me he did. The book that he revealed to us told us that he did. This is the login only to this.
That we have to become that on the once again, we have to make ourselves that oma once again, it's not a default, you don't get it just because you say you're Muslim, you have to do the work. If you want the if you want the benefits that come with being a Muslim, if you want the rewards that Allah has given only to the believers, then you have to put in the effort. You cannot just walk through your job. Sit on your behinds for eight hours a day and think that you're going to get a paycheck at the end of the weekend. Some work must be done, you have to prove and verify what did you do to earn this money? And a lot of Magellan is going to ask you what did you do what you think you should
We have to put in the work dear brothers and sisters, especially when it comes to dialogue. Because when we look through our history, through the history of this ummah, when the unknown was the greatest and our when they were the best in spreading the deen of Allah as the gender they should be spread. They had the highest status in the world. They had the highest positions, they were respected. Very few Muslims lost their lives. There was not very few oppressed Muslims anywhere on the globe. Even the worst of Muslims would stand up for the dignity of the deen.
Even the worst of Muslims would stand up for the dignity of Islam by the Khalifa lopesan all of you noticed and correct, the fella that punished, you know,
vehemently even when he heard the story of the woman who was oppressed. Does anybody How many of you know the story when the woman was calling out called upon his honor?
What did he do, he sent an entire army for one system. And when he had heard about this, he asked the Lord to forgive most of them for all of these sins. This is only used to have dignity and integrity.
Have its man, even if they were had problems in it without themselves. If we can at least come back to this understanding that I have an obligation to share this message with those who I come in contact with, to the best of my abilities to the best of my abilities, then we will get back to that place. And I don't expect any of you to quit your job, please don't do that. Please, please don't do that. All of you have the job to do in your respective fields. But within that test, you also have the job to share the message of Islam. If you adopt that you can share the deen of Islam with your patients. I know a doctor who when he gives people prescriptions, he tells them, this is something
that I am giving you because I am diagnosing your symptoms. But this cannot help you without the permission of your Creator. So when you take it, I advise you to take it in the end say in the name of the one who created me, me he helped me to recover from this illness and guide me to what is right. Do you know he's given 5060 100 chahat in the past 10 years with this very simply very simple message very, very simple. All of you have that within your respective capacities. And then there's some of you that may want to take this as a field. And this is a field This is an honored field. And one thing that I'm trying to do throughout the world, what I if there's any one thing that I wanted
to do, I want to leave a legacy of professionalism on this on this on this work of data. Because it is a professional field. It is always been done by professionally trained people. And it shouldn't be such an it shouldn't be respected as such is a very honored profession. So in sha Allah, Allah, we will have some time for some q&a. But I hope anyone and I hope none of you have any question in your mind about the best job in the world. Does anyone have any question in their mind about this not being the best job in the world, conveying the message of a lot of people? What is up
for him? Was that American Rahmatullah he better get any questions?
That's very inspiring. Experimental. What are you going to do now while waiting to to do the collection while waiting to do the q&a, because your collection Alan collection for his our activities, and especially for the TV, which is doing in, in America. So please, please donate generously for everything that goes will help to these two stations on the air, which both of them together are about a $3 million a year budget. So
that's a drop in the bucket compared to what you guys are doing over here, but
the TV as well as the guys unit TV, was that going on? So some hands for questions. Yeah. Any questions? Yes. A big question.
Yeah, let me put my glasses on.
If you if you speak loudly at present your voice and are repeating.
how we can go out and start changing society around our community.
Well, actually, if you can, please shorten your question, please. This sort of questions so that at least you can be able to benefit a lot
happening in the Muslim
world we can see
People are standing up now.
speaking out, they want
About You know, some of the change that is happening the the, what is so called the, you know, the the revolutions that are happening all over the Muslim world. I'm not going to get, you know, the Arab Spring that turned into the autumn, summer, fall, winter and the season now, you know, I don't want to get too deep into it because it needs a lot of explanation, my position upon that and it's not just my position. This is the position of the scholars of Islam, you know, the very knowledgeable scholars of Islam. But based upon what you said, we should be able to answer this very well for ourselves, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is within
themselves. So if the change that we are trying to make throughout the world is first beginning, outside,
it is backwards, is backwards, if we don't try to change what is in here first, then what is outside of us will not change. That is the condition set by Allah. That is a condition that is put upon us by Allah as virgin. We know very authentically the Hadith of the Prophet later that was then he said when you become satisfied with in a you know, haram business transactions chasing the tail of tilling the soil of the earth, abandoning striving for the sake of Allah, so that Allah Allah,
Allah placed upon your humility, humiliation and he will not remove it. From the source you will add the information you go back to your deen. So you go back to your deen because this is not the first time we've seen revolutions like this tried to take place. But if they are not done first in here, if the revolution does not take place first within the hardest division, the Muslims then the outward revolution is going to do no good. And that is something of the theme for us. Because there was a situation I like to quote the story because it puts everything in perspective without me having to get long winded why and how and what and so on in this country that country.
hustle bustle, Rahim Allah Mohammed, you know, Huston alvaston hustling bustling, hustlers mastery was known as the mama said that he was one of the great scholars of the in the followers the companions, he learned from from 10s and 10s and 10s and 10s, of the companions of the Prophet Elisa system on selama. On selama, Allah Allah used to babysit him. This is how how great this man was,
during his time didn't even know the name of the study for this time.
Had judge her judgment uses what's her Jasmine use of the greatest person?
When we do history speaks for itself. What is he the best Muslim? Did he kill Muslims?
A lot of Muslims. He made the streets run Reddit time with the blood of Muslims. When a group of youth came to Hudson allostery Rahim Allah and they asked him for permission to go and fight with a judge. He said, We're tired of the tsunami, we can't take it anymore. Give us reason to go fight him. What did that What did he say? He said, let him know. He said number one, the rulers of the Muslims are a reflection of what is inside the heart of the Muslims. The rulers are a reflection of what's in inside the hearts. So we find the rulers are corrupt, then you need to look at the heart. And then he told the people, if this ruler is a punishment from Allah on you, you cannot remove a
lot of punishment with your soul. You can it can be done. He said as if it is a test from a lot on you. Tests are only one through patient tests or only one through patience. And then he reminded the people if you want to stop the oppressors from oppressing you, then stop oppressing yourselves with sin in front of a large division. If you want to stop the oppressors from oppressing you, stop oppressing yourselves with sin and disobedience to Ally's agenda. So this is all I can say about this is coming from the best of us. This is coming from the best of us. And we know this is something that we really have to understand that I'm not pointing out this country that countries
forget about that this change has to come from within. Because what is what comes out of this is not is not a life built upon the Quran. And the Sunnah of the racetrack was run. It was a failure and a fitness.
There's no there's no question about this is what comes out of it is democracy, which is not Islam, then it was a failure. And it was a fitna, and people will be punished. Very, very clear. We have to we have to learn this. We have to look at our history. Because one thing my brother used to say about history is very beautiful. He said for Muslims, what are the things that we learn from history is that we don't learn anything from history.
We don't learn anything to distribute. How many of you in here are from Somalia?
Somalia, did not have some money. Did you
have some money? Because if you or your wife is they say in Somalia and out of out of country you are where you are from where your wife is from. So the other half of my Deen is from Somalia. You
I should notice very clearly, you guys should have learned this lesson very, very, very clearly it has to be done with correct because there are two things for any any any action to be accepted two things, two things, yes or no only to number one they have to be done with a class for Allah as a general not a clap for any individual or party or group or nothing can be done for democracy it can be done for freedom has to be done for the sake of Allah alone. And number two, it has to
be according to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, without this, it won't be acceptable to Allah, and it will not produce any benefits.
Any other questions,
we'll need to go on and on about the punishment for those who missed a lot. But clearly, clearly the process as Sam says, when every one of you are resurrected, your feet won't move. You know, when you become resurrected from from the grave, you will be you'll land somewhere on the earth, your feet will stay. And he said, your feet will not move. Until you're asked how many things
are five things what's the first thing you'll be asked about.
The third thing you will be asked about is your setup. And the process that if your salon is in order, everything else is going to be in order. That means everything that comes after that if they check your salon and say a lot is good, then you can you can take a sigh of relief, you can say because everything happened, that's going to be okay. But if your salon is lacking, then what everything after it's going to be lacking. So this is the criterion. This is the criteria in the Prophet Lisa that was said what differentiates us, meaning the Muslims from them is what salah and he also says based on Emmanuel Cooper is the law the difference between belief and disbelief is the
follow up. And the scholars are of sincerity about this is someone who leaves off one four out of laziness they are they have committed a major sin committed a major sin. And if they do it because they already think it's important, then there is a border, they they are on the verge of losing the entire Islam, the Islam is in jeopardy. If you just take the slider as a mundane thing, that's not a really big deal. Your Islam is something that you've fallen off the cliff, pretty much. But if you put it all together, you're very shaky on your Islam. So slow is very, very important. This is your connection with a lot.
How I came to slam, we don't have time, those of you who are left I know right? But if you go on YouTube, and type in use Evans, you'll get it about 50 times over and a lot better fashion that I would be able to tell you in 510 minutes, because about an hour and a half long. Ciao.
He's talking about how to advise the youth about living in this condition where it's very easy for your man to fall. We know the profit later. That's the sense that he man rises, comes up and it goes down because the companions complained that they were worried they said when you are a man it's like it's like we're living in them. They walk in and gentlemen, but then we go home to our families. You know, it says if we you know as if we just fall off, you know what the Prophet did? He laughed. He laughed he said this is nothing basically says Don't worry about it. He comes and goes and comes up and goes you know, Eman is is similar to a muscle. Right? A man assembles a muscle, a muscle, you
know, in the body. If he goes to work out, you got to work out. Do you go and grab the 100 pound dumbbells and start working out with them?
No, absolutely not. You're gonna rip every muscle in your body you're gonna break something, you're gonna hurt yourself. You're gonna get hurt and something you start with the light dumbbells, the five pounds and then you get up and you I don't know five pound kilos, whatever. You go up in in wait a little bit longer and then after a few months, the the 10 pounds or the you know the whatever have you the five kilo dumbbell doesn't feel as heavy anymore. You have to go up a little bit higher to get a workout. Right? You don't go down that you can't go down to the to the one pounders anymore. It's like throwing around rice cakes. This is like in an email is a muscle that must be
worked on. You can't just sit around at home and think a man is going to grow. No, it has to be it's like just like it's a muscle. It's like a like a plant.
You can't just stick a plant in the ground and expect it to grow. It has to be nurtured and watered and taken care of and fertilize your Eman has to be worked on, your mind has to be worked on constantly, constantly has to be worked on. Because the more you work on it, the stronger it becomes, the stronger it becomes, the less of that out there is even going to affect you, the less of that out there is going to affect you. You see what I'm saying? When the demand is low and weak, these things become very enticing to us, the music, the girls, all that become enticing to you. But as the demand grows, as the demand becomes stronger, and you work on it more through reading the
book of Allah as virgin, during the son of the Prophet is that was them spending more time and solo doing more of the sooner actions than those things as they become less and less and less important. You start to realize, wait a minute, I don't even know how I looked at that and saw any value in that at that point. And that's because your Eman becomes a lot stronger, like the muscle becomes stronger. But again, if you have strong muscles and you start working out what happens? They turned to fat.
They turned the fat. If you don't consistently keep that regimen up, then the weakness happens. The weakness. Okay. So it's just like working out, you got to work out. You want to be strong, you gotta work out, you have to eat right, right. You have to have a good diet. If you want the man to be strong, you have to have a good diet of Quran and Sunnah you have to work out
any other questions?
the question as to what can we do to justify
ourselves? The second question is, how can we?
How can we do one?
The first question about the slide he was saying, you know, what happens if we've been praying Salah for years and years, but our our character, our class does not reflect that there's some deficiency in the soul, there's something the person has to reflect back on. Because as you said, Allah says Joaquin masala in a salon can handle and for sure, he will establish the salah for the Salah would prevent you from doing evil things and going down evil roads. If the, if the work is not affected by the provider, then there's something wrong with the event because the event is the core of the work. And our products should matter. And that's one lecture that I have been giving a lot to the youth
about the statement of profit later that person I'm not going to remember that I was sent to protect your character. And our character is so important. And that's one of the things that we really, really need to work on a lot, especially our youth, especially our youth working on their athletics that we have the loss of a Muslim, but your advisor should directly affect your flock. If you have a bad character, but you're doing a bad job, then maybe you should I would give an advice to go back and check the sincerity of that. Maybe we need to be a little bit more, have a little bit more for sure. Maybe we'll spend a little more more time on perfecting that event. Because when a bad is
correct, it should affect the character. The second thing about how to get involved in Dawa you get involved in Tao by first having an attitude for you have to first get it in here and up here that I have an attitude for it. Because there is no The only way I can give that will have to join the Dell organization. No, that's not the only way. That is a good way to get involved in everything in Dell. But someone who has a mind frame for Dawa. Every time they encounter someone that becomes an opportunity. Every time they converse with someone it becomes an opportunity to say something about Islam is what I'm saying. So we have to first train the mind and train the heart to have this effort
for Tao. Because then you will see the opportunities, they present them present themselves. You don't have to force yourself to them. But you have a very beautiful man here who insha Allah, as all of you know is involved in the Dawa and I'm sure there are things going on right here and flamstead correct. Islamic Center in this general area that you can be involved in every Masjid should have a committed dour. Every message because if the masjid is not doing Dawa as a as an effort as a concerted effort, then then there's something wrong. And I'm clear about that. Because the masjid is the Center for this gala It is something with a properly so that's the same way every semester
first. This was the place where everything happened he would send out the dog from this from this machine and it needs to happen here as well. And he'd send out the door I send the message and I'm talking about proper to train to I'm not talking about the other you know we're not gonna go there. We're not talking about going out and just knocking on the doors and, you know, talking without having no idea what we're talking about. We're talking about proper trained, our doing executive should be concerted effort coming from
only become Muslim then you share and that is you talking to them as part of the reason you accepted them is because there are people from the river I happen to meet a young man I was going to talk to them. This actually looking for an article that I wanted to give as a gift when I went back, and little did I know, the young man who was working in the shop saw my video about how can you fix your heart and based upon that, so I would never even know, you know that I'm getting this young man's disease insha Allah Allah. So you know, it may be a capitalistic
machine, but he said my video was a catalyst towards that I told him exhaustively, you know, if you are cannabis in that, then you will get where he I can't codify the system for you, you get one parent or one but you know, it says I don't know that when it comes to rewards like that they are with
any other questions? If you have any questions for from the from the system side, just write them down and just pass them down to be able to read them how to
begin to finalize the questions, you have 1233 questions. This would be the final question unless it gets any, from the sisters. Now, please make your questions to be short. and to the point.
For this is something you know, it's it's a specific case by case scenario, you know, everybody can bring up a situation if they have to do this specific situation, we should do what fits best in that situation. And Muslims need to learn to have a voice. Because how does this How Does anyone know about this?
Through the news, correct through the media.
People hear about this through the media. Muslims should have a voice just as powerful. We should have a voice just as dignified as the media has. We have every capability to do it. We should do it. We have the how many Islamic channels here?
A lot, a lot. But how many of them are focused on you know, you know, dealing with the mundane day to day things that are going on that they should be defending the deen of Allah azza wa jal about these people say this, okay. Tonight we're going to talk about this from the Islamic perspective, we're going to put it in its right place. This is one thing I The reason I'm one of the reasons I started one oma TV, because we have the I have a mobile studio that I take everywhere I go at with me in London. So if I hear something on the news, and I have the capacity, and I'm at home, I can set the studio and put it out within 30 minutes, there'll be a broadcast about such and such was
said, and we're going to give it to you from the Islamic perspective. So the people that know there's a voice out there for Muslims. But even if and this is something that we're I was asked about at a lecture and we need to realize someone said to me, you know, Jesus is made fun of all the time. Have you ever heard that the show Family Guy, Family Guy, American Dad, I mean, they make fun of Jesus. Like, there's no tomorrow, this guy says, he's an atheist. They ridicule Jesus Up, down, left and right, whatever happened. And we don't hear the Muslim scream about it. But you make one little cartoon about Muslims. I said, number one, I want to apologize. Because we are the ones that
should be defending Jesus before the Christians, because he is our Prophet, Allah. Allah has given us the heart about him. We should be the ones that say if the Christians don't do it, they don't they don't even practice what he taught them. I don't expect them to send him property. We shouldn't be defending him. If someone says something about Moses, we should be the first to defend forget about the home, we should do that. He's our messenger. So we should put them all together because not a lot say we believe in all of them. And we know no distinction between any of them. I said, but also you have to understand when it comes down to suicide, a felony has a special place in our
heart. We are commanded to love him better than we love more than we love our own souls. But we should defend each and every prophet equally. Someone says something about Jesus we as the Muslim, that tells us that the sister that's important, which must be the question.
We shouldn't be the first defending them. You see, but we should have a voice. We should have a voice which we should have a newspaper. We should have a news outlet. We should have something. Forget about our diseases, talking about everything else.
individually as a person,
we can do what is within your capacity, you can write an article about it, submit it to the newspaper, the same newspaper, write an intelligent rebuttal to this, submit it to the newspaper, if they publish it, if they don't lie, you can publish this article on your own online. You can have your own blog, you can put your own voice out there with some with some wisdom and some good information. But we all can have our effort to do our job and we should do something. And if you don't have the capacity to do anything, then test it in your heart until the opportunity presents itself for you. And Shawn,
early on in early 2000s, there was a panorama about
this mother, Mary Malaya, salaam, and a lot of issues surrounding that. And the first people who stood up I think it was in the BBC around Christmas time, the first people who stood up to counter that and to refute that and to send letters to the BBC denouncing the word Muslims. And actually the reason they put forward was that to us, Jesus peace be upon him, he is a prophet, and Lavinia is our Prophet Mohammed Salah Salah, and there's no way he can stand by when you see people you're getting leave all we see people marmalade and Salah, he is mean one of the
highest, most pious women who even a whole chapter in the Quran, as you mentioned in half oh nine, Harlan. And there's no emotion concerned by what these people are being delegated, or they're being
people are denouncing them. So it is our duty as Muslims to stand up to speak out whenever Isola is the lamb or hammer or his mom, whenever they are, anything is done to them, or people going to stand up to speak against them. It becomes our duty as Muslims to stand up and say, that is a prophet with a combination of forces and therefore we stand for him. When that happened. I think it was around 2003 to 2000 to 2003. Would that happen? Even the creases are very short. I know there are some bishops that I met around that time, as they were shocked that Hong Kong is the Muslim who stood up to speak against that panorama. And for us as Christians, their feedback it came later on later,
much, much later on. So it's just it's a point of view sensitizing yourself against issues for Islam and the Muslims and the prophets of Islam. As you realize that the only prophets Islam
is making short.
He's asking what you know, what capacity should we do to give the dollar maybe to our neighbors or to our friends, you know, you do what is within your capacity, because even though the Prophet alayhi salatu salam gave us a commandment convey from me, even if it's only a single verse, we know that we can't say that about which we have no knowledge, we can, you can talk about that which you don't have knowledge. That's not proper. It's not, it's not even permissible. But every one of you, as you said, know, someone who knows about Islam, or you have access to some pamphlets, you have access to some books or to websites. So you can tell people that which you know, for sure thing, and
that what you don't know, you can direct them to someone else, you can direct them somewhere else, and you have done the job. If you point them in the right direction, you've done your job. That's all you were capable of doing. That's all you meant to do. If that person is sincere and earnest about learning, then they'll go to the next point of reference. Just like the guy who converted helped me come to Islam. He didn't tell me anything about Islam. He said just go to the masjid you know, but he became the benefit beneficiary of what I'm doing. So you do what's what's within your capacity? You can't have a 10 minute conversation with everyone you meet in the streets. But maybe
you sit down with someone and next to someone on the train on the tube or on the bus you know, you tell them about Islam surely brief whatever chance to have whatever you have to leave off the here's a pamphlet or here's a website, they go to the very for information, here's how you can contact me etc. If they do, then they have sincere intent if they don't, it's not it's not it's not your problem, because you are not the source of guidance. Even though we have the obligation to give the there are a lot is that he is the one who opens the heart and guides people to himself. That's the most we can do.
What happened to the person who helped you? Because I've never seen him again.
He went to jail for something
I don't know. never heard from again. I didn't know. I didn't even know his legal name. I don't even know how to look fine. Your friends.
Yeah, we were friends but I only knew him as blunt or Muslim and that wasn't illegal. And also fellow Christian. He became an atheist
after reading the Bible,
and he doesn't want to hear anything about the Quran.
He cut off all contact with me now.
The sister asked in the course of doing Dallas someone asked
why is it why
We use the Gregorian calendar for our date of birth. If the Gregorian calendar is not our Islamic year,
because we have to by law, we can't go to the, you know, the Court of registry or whatever and tell them I was born on the fifth of June, then 1400 of the history.
I have no idea what you're talking about. I mean, we have to use what is being used, you know, as just as the system is it was, if there was a federal funding, we would use the history calendar, it would be 1433, it would be very that much that simple. It would be that simple. But, you know, when we look at it, you know, and I always laugh about it that I'm two ages. You know, according to the Roman calendar, I am 31, according to the history calendar, I'm almost 34 that's just the way it is. You know, it's just, it's just the way it is we count our calendar by the history calendar. And this is what it comes to when I when it comes to our event, then we can say all slides at seven o'clock.
So we pray at seven o'clock. No, you pray.
When it comes to things like that, we have to stick with what is known, we pray. You can say, oh, Ramadan is the month of December, like the the nation does. No, no, it's the month of Ramadan. And that counted according to the history calendar, when this when the moon comes, that's it. But when it comes to these mundane, everyday acts, we have to use what is being used, I mean, it's not going to be acceptable. And that we just have to have some sense about that, you know, we can't be crazy like that, but like, Oh, no, I am. I was born in the month of sharlyn. I don't know, but no month of January, I mean, you're gonna look into like your food. So we you know, that's that's the simple
answer to that. Secondly, is it possible to use only Islamic State?
For our date of birth, as per above, when especially in the registry? No, you can't. Because they're not going to accept it? Are they?
They're not going to I know in America, they won't accept it, then just look at you like you have no sense
use of humans. I know you can still see the little answer reaching out. But we say this was the last question unless you get one from the sisters which he goes. We really open the table for hearts. Thank you for coming. And the last panel was Adam and Charles and you're appletinis
and you want to sell us the venue ticket for me. gela gone study knowledge at the table.
