00:00:23--> 00:00:25

peaceful,

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

peaceful, peaceful peaceful.

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

You

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

oh do blah he mina shaytani r rajim

00:01:21--> 00:01:29

Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim, Al hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil alameen subhana wa. Today,

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

I want to focus on some other

00:01:35--> 00:01:58

social indicators and some other major issues in the world today which create human wrongs. The first of those is the destruction of the environment, the environment with which without, none of us will be living on this planet, such as the nature of this issue.

00:01:59--> 00:02:11

I think everybody agrees, collectively, we need to do something about it and do something about it for us. So, when the Kyoto accord was

00:02:12--> 00:02:21

drawn up, and when President of the USA, Mr. George Bush described it

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

in March 2001, as being dead,

00:02:27--> 00:02:47

I think the world got very worried. Of course, what happened after 2001 to the present day, has been a total and utter catastrophe. All the more important that statement from George Bush, and this is not a political show, it's just that we are talking about real life

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

issues, crisis in the world, that America

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

is the largest

00:02:57--> 00:03:11

creator, if you like of pollution in the world, their carbon emissions are rated at something in the region of 20 22%. However, their population

00:03:12--> 00:03:19

remains at 4% of the world, seemingly, we are living for today. And today alone.

00:03:20--> 00:03:30

We have complete and utter contradiction. The politicians, many of them, perhaps not including George Bush, are saying

00:03:31--> 00:03:44

we got to get rid of the greenhouse gases. You got to do something about automobiles, and assumption of energies, etc. We've got to have green orientated

00:03:45--> 00:04:12

energy sources, renewable energy sources, and the oil companies are doing something completely different. They are plowing hundreds of millions of dollars and pounds into new oil exploration, thus, creating a massive contradiction. What we actually hear from the politicians and from the brokers is one thing we actually see

00:04:13--> 00:04:21

in the works of the oil companies and the multinational corporations is totally another thing.

00:04:22--> 00:04:35

Subhana Allah, the Kyoto Protocol, suggested that we would have to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases over a given period

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

by 5%. However, scientists un scientists have said we need to reduce the actual greenhouse gases in order to have a sustainable environment by 80%. And yet, George Bush declared the Kyoto accord has been dead. Well, I think the human race is going to be dead. If we

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Don't do something about it.

00:05:02--> 00:05:09

Exxon is one of the biggest culprits in the USA. But BP and shell

00:05:10--> 00:05:37

are perhaps we should just refer, of course, to very large multinational corporations, oil giants are, by and large responsible for the impact on the environment. And the fact is that they are unabated, continuing with oil exploration, and they really don't give a damn SubhanAllah. And there's not much we can do about it, even though

00:05:38--> 00:05:44

you know, we live in westernized democracies, not much we can do about

00:05:45--> 00:05:52

human rights, or human wrongs. Now, the UN, scientists have

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

estimated that the

00:05:56--> 00:06:04

temperature needs to grow by naught point 1%, every year for the next 50 years,

00:06:06--> 00:06:09

whereby weather patterns will become

00:06:10--> 00:06:46

unpredictable, and irreversible cycle will take place whereby we will not really have much of a planet to write home about in terms of the environment, then brothers and sisters, it's clear that we need to do something very drastically about the environment in order that we will, and our children and their children will have a planet to live upon, the destruction of the environment is happening at an ever increasing level. And it's up to the Muslims, again,

00:06:47--> 00:06:52

in the Muslim lands, to show the way forward. So, so panela,

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

without people speaking out against these evils,

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

we will all suffer. It is said by some commentators, that the war in Iraq, which is basically the next section of the this tool, cost the US economy, billions and billions of US dollars, and it continues to SAP the resources of the world's economies, even though we know it wasn't illegal, incursion into that country, Iraq.

00:07:35--> 00:07:36

Instead,

00:07:37--> 00:07:41

we could have funded global poverty.

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

For six years,

00:07:46--> 00:07:52

we could have hired 2,658,000 school teachers,

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

to educate our children.

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

Or we could have funded the World Aids

00:08:02--> 00:08:07

rehabilitation program for 15 years. Instead, we decided,

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

or the British government and the American government, they decided to take action, which took so many human lives, instead of saving human lives, you're taking human lives.

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

There's a lot of contradictions here. When it comes to nuclear war.

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

We were told,

00:08:31--> 00:08:40

and we are worried about the situation regarding a number of countries that have nuclear arms. However,

00:08:41--> 00:08:48

I'm sorry to tell you that the only country that has ever used a nuclear weapon

00:08:50--> 00:09:05

on a civilian population in Hiroshima, of course, is none other than the United States. And only 250 military personnel were killed

00:09:06--> 00:09:09

when the bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were dropped.

00:09:11--> 00:09:18

And the bombs resulted in something in between 103 100,000 civilian deaths.

00:09:23--> 00:09:31

If we move now on to sanctions, which I've turned here as war without guns, then it's holiday.

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

As first Assistant

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

Secretary General

00:09:40--> 00:09:43

of the humanitarian coordination in Iraq

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

in 1998, simply he said,

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

We are in the process of destroying an entire nation.

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

It's as simple and as terrifying as that.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

It's a little

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

And it's immoral. This is the UN bigwig,

00:10:05--> 00:10:10

un figures from 1989 to 1995.

00:10:12--> 00:10:28

Looking at infant mortality rates and comparing them from year to year on all the way through from 98 to 95, it was found that as many as 567,000 Iraqi children

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

were murdered

00:10:31--> 00:10:35

by us through sanctions, war without guns,

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

human rights or human wrongs, and who will be accountable for all of these deaths?

00:10:43--> 00:11:00

Did we speak against it? It's not a question of taking arms up. It's a question of speaking with your tongue. And yet, we can't even open our mouth. We haven't even got the strength to command the good, forbid evil.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

Somehow, no. However,

00:11:05--> 00:11:10

on war, we were told more than 1400 years ago,

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

that there are certain rules for engagement, none other than Abu Bakar acidic

00:11:18--> 00:11:18

who said,

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

and I'll read it to you.

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

I will give you 10 rules for engagement.

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

Do not commit treachery

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

or deviate from the right path.

00:11:32--> 00:11:37

He must not mutilate the dead. Neither kill a child or a woman

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

nor an aged man.

00:11:42--> 00:11:46

Bring no harm to the trees, especially those trees which are fruitful.

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

Slay not even

00:11:51--> 00:11:57

any of the enemies flock sheep castle, save for your food.

00:11:58--> 00:12:05

You are likely to pass by people who have devoted themselves to worship

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

I monastic service

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

leave these people. These are the conditions for going to war.

00:12:16--> 00:12:38

You are not allowed to burn the fruitful trees. You are not allowed to kill men, women and children who are not engaged in the battle. Only the people in the battlefield themselves. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive everything that I've said which is incorrect. All praise is due to Allah subhana wa Taala. So brothers and sisters,

00:12:39--> 00:12:49

join us after the break in sha Allah for more of the same human rights, or human wrongs Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:15:34--> 00:15:50

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Thank you for joining me after the break, use of chambers here again, just a continuation of what we were talking about before the break brothers and sisters, very, very important 10 rules for engagement.

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

Do not commit treachery

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

or deviate from the right path.

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

You must not mutilate the dead, neither kill a child or a woman

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

nor an aged man.

00:16:06--> 00:16:10

Bring no harm to the trees, especially those trees which are fruitful.

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

Slay not even

00:16:16--> 00:16:22

any of the enemies flock, sheep cattle, save for your food,

00:16:23--> 00:16:31

you are likely to pass by people who have devoted themselves to worship

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

I monastic service

00:16:36--> 00:16:40

lead these people, these are the conditions for going to war.

00:16:41--> 00:17:18

You are not allowed to burn the fruitful trees. You are not allowed to kill men, women and children who are not engaged in the battle, only the people in the battlefield themselves. Now I want to move on to another social ill is alcohol, alcohol abuse and crimes related to the taking of alcohol as a socially accepted drug, because it is socially accepted. And you have to remember that during the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell the prohibition of alcohol.

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

Alcohol was something which was taken by the Sahaba

00:17:24--> 00:17:27

consumed by the Sahaba. But

00:17:28--> 00:17:47

when it was prohibited, the streets of Medina ran with wine, because everybody got rid of the alcohol and stopped drinking because they loved the Prophet Mohammed salallahu alayhi wasalam they trusted him. And they knew that when he said something is forbidden,

00:17:48--> 00:17:52

they would stop. Alcohol is a social skill

00:17:53--> 00:18:01

that we need to deal with. We need to nip in the bud soon. In the UK, for example, there are many

00:18:02--> 00:18:27

incidences of young revelers in high streets in every major capital city in the UK on Friday and Saturday nights. It's like an ad on Friday and Saturday night every Friday and Saturday night. Young eat. The difference is chaos, destruction, vomiting, urinating,

00:18:28--> 00:18:44

fighting, and what is after all, a major cost to the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the UK. When the ambulances and the police are called upon to deal with the crowds. It's a major problem. But what's perhaps more worrying

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

are the incidents of crime that take place.

00:18:52--> 00:18:59

When a person is intoxicated with alcohol. Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

has told us of course, karma,

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

meaning

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

to cover, Hamas means to cover.

00:19:12--> 00:19:18

You cover your senses. When you drink, you cover your senses and you're able to do anything.

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

That your soul your desires Wish you can kill someone.

00:19:24--> 00:19:37

You can maim someone, you can smack your wife up, or your wife will come and smack you and you can do all sorts of evil. When you're in Hama, covered Allah says in the call an

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

O you who believe, intoxicants

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

gambling and the idols of altars,

00:19:46--> 00:19:54

and the games of chance, are an abomination of the devil an abomination of the devil

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

Subhana Allah in the Quran

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

That is

00:20:01--> 00:20:07

Surah number five, verse 19. And another verse they asked you about intoxicants

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

and gambling,

00:20:10--> 00:20:18

say there is some good in them, but the good is far outweighed by the evil or the bad. So we know

00:20:19--> 00:20:32

for assurity that what we've seen in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammed Salah slam, that you have to get rid of alcohol and intoxicants generally. However,

00:20:33--> 00:20:51

that's not the case in the societies that we live in today. And in 1999, the British crime survey estimates that there was 1.2 million incidents, alcohol related crime

00:20:53--> 00:21:11

in the UK, that one year 1.2 million of these incidents, crime under the influence of alcoholic beverages, intoxicants 51% of those people were acquaintances, who actually friends with one another,

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

are not enemies.

00:21:15--> 00:21:25

Now moving on to the issue of poverty, world poverty is, of course, as we know, a major thing, major problems. And in the developing world.

00:21:26--> 00:21:44

It is clear now that more than 2.6 billion people live on less than $5 a day, and 1.2 billion people live on less than $1 a day. And that's below the accepted, you know,

00:21:46--> 00:21:52

poverty indicators set by the UN and the humanitarian bodies around the UN.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

And in terms of depravations of poverty

00:21:59--> 00:22:03

600 640 million children

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

do not have adequate shelter.

00:22:08--> 00:22:13

500 million have no access to sanitation or good sanitation.

00:22:15--> 00:22:18

400 million don't have access to good water.

00:22:19--> 00:22:24

270 million have inadequate health care facilities.

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

140 million have never been to school.

00:22:30--> 00:22:34

And it all comes back to the old issue of Riba

00:22:35--> 00:22:39

usury for interest from the years

00:22:40--> 00:22:52

1980 there was almost half a trillion dollars in interest created from debt, owned by nations,

00:22:53--> 00:22:58

poor nations, to the rich nations, half a trillion dollars

00:22:59--> 00:23:59

in 86, that doubled to a trillion in 1994. That became almost 2 trillion. And now the figure is near 3.5 trillion US dollars in the savanna, the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. And the poor, we see around us that unfortunately, that the very bodies that are set up, to administer their needs to take care of their needs to give them human rights. And not human wrongs are the ones who are implicitly denying them of their basic human needs. In terms of personal debt in the UK, another example 2000 people were interviewed. And it was found that a large percentage of these people had big deaths. The average family in the UK has more than 5000 pounds outstanding on their credit

00:23:59--> 00:24:51

cards, which they can't pay off. So they're just paying the interest charges. So they're in a cycle of debt. 16% of these 2000 people that were interviewed had a debt of more, from 10,000 to 40,000 pounds 15% of these people regularly, could not get a good night's sleep as a result of worrying about the debts. mortgages are massively on the increase taxations are on the increase. And even in the developing countries or the developed countries, what I like to call now the Fourth World, there are incidences of people only just about being able to pay their rent. And these are professionals, doctors, teachers, you know, middle ranking managers who can't even afford to live in places like

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

London, and as I've already mentioned, previously, are mentioned again, Abu huraira reported that we would come

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

A time Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said, we will come to a time of certainty. When the person who doesn't take the river, the one who doesn't accept it doesn't pay it will be consumed by its vapor. And this is certainly the time, Allahu Allah knew we're living. Now, the solution. It's up to us to end, brothers and sisters, I will quote you, George Bernard Shaw.

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

If any religion

00:25:28--> 00:25:35

had the chance of ruling over England, Nay, Europe, it would have to be Islam. This is written

00:25:37--> 00:25:48

in 1936. He goes on to say and I'll read it to you. I've always held the religion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam in high estimation,

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

because of its wonderful vitality,

00:25:53--> 00:26:00

it's the only religion which appears to possess the vitality and assimilating capacity

00:26:03--> 00:26:49

to the changing phases of existence, which can make itself appeal to any age in any time. And he goes on to say, that if Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to assume a dictatorship of the modern world, he alone, he alone would be able to sort out the woeful state of affairs that we're in now, somehow. So brothers and sisters does that Hello, Hayden for watching human rights and human wrongs. Over the last few episodes. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to accept everything that we've said, which is correct from caught on and Sunnah. antipasto Peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all those who followed him until the Day of Judgment is

00:26:49--> 00:26:56

established and none has knowledge of that day. But Allah Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:27:09--> 00:27:14

To strengthen web we live in the void we

00:27:16--> 00:27:17

hear the echo in

00:27:19--> 00:27:19

the big

00:27:21--> 00:27:22

Bay
