Now I will do even a shakedown rajim
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah.
Start by praising Allah
and bestowing Peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a bit of the law, the best of mankind. The most righteous a man of mankind is
the one who came to teach us the difference between right and wrong and we are living in his tenure. We are living in the tenure of more habit, even of the loss of a loved one he was. This is the era. This is the Islamic era.
But you wouldn't notice.
My dear brothers and sisters in Islam,
you would struggle to believe that we're living in the 10 year old Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
The first commandment that Allah subhanho wa Taala sends in the end to Mohammed Salah
aka, a club, this means of the calorie holla read in the name of your Lord who created you.
He created you for a distinct purpose.
And then after some time, and the time that elapsed between this is Allah knows best some scholars say up to three years. The next verse, the loss of power.
come for me.
Have you wrapped up in a garment arrives and warm throw your garment off and arrives on wall that the world is not guaranteed any success in this world are they here after
the second commandment? Allah subhanho wa Taala extends to mankind via this wonderful man who
is indeed a warm man.
No brothers and sisters in Islam
at the time of the life of this great man,
Malik Ibn Deena
so me and Sally and the likes of these people, they traveled to India,
they traveled to India, they were companions of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, at the time of his life, as he was still living,
so long as he will send them.
They came to Kerala.
They were sitting on the books and they were saying this is the land of
this is the land of blessings of Allah. And we've come here for one purpose. The purpose is to expand the beautiful message of Islam across the world regardless of who they are, where they are, how powerful they are, how rich they are, how poor they are, everyone must get this message. And that's why they went to India. They did not go to India to train. They did not go to India to marry some rich, pious woman. They went to India to extend the boundaries of Islam and save the people from jahannam because the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
arise from amongst mankind and mankind that jahannam indeed is a nasty, nasty place and he did not want even one of the people in his tenure to go to Japan.
Now I want you to wine the history books holds
the history history, the annals of history, I want you to wind it forward 1300 years and you want it for 1300 years. There is a man who comes to Scotland.
A man who comes to Scotland His name is was big
Once the baby is a medical student, and he studies in Edinburgh,
he comes here for the purpose of learning medicine in Scotland's Edinburgh University in 1858. That man is here in Scotland in 1858. And all the way through for the next three years, he resides here. And then if you wind the clock forward
in 19 03, that's 1903. That is, according to my mathematics, which isn't the best is over 100 years ago, there are 5000 Muslims in Glasgow.
According to the history books, there are 5000 Muslims in the docs
1000s brothers and sisters,
I want to ask you a question.
In all honesty,
with intending no shame upon you, intending no disrespect to anyone, but intending just to seek the truth, I just want to find the HAC. I just want to find the truth inside myself. And inside all of you brothers for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In the last 110 years or so,
what have the Muslims brought to Scotland?
And if you compare
the seriousness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his righteous companions, the Sahaba.
Can you compare this with your own situation here over 110 years? Or if you include this man, 150 years, brother was here?
can you compare the two situations more than 150 years, and only a period of what you can say is 80 years after the death of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was.
Islam in ancient India, Islam is entered Spain is entered virtually every place that there was civilization in the spirit of a deist. And we have been here for 150 years in Scotland. And we haven't even taken the goals. We haven't even given Islam to the goals. We haven't even given Islam.
In fact, we have been taking from the culture of the religion to the people, if you look at the situation of our youth, you will find that they have left Islam, you find out women are taking the hijab off I met one this morning,
you will find that indeed, we are in a state of
war last in
that mankind is in a state of loss.
I was sitting with a group of youth this morning. And it's such a beautiful thing to sit with the youth because they don't like
they really want to say something they say they've got no pretension. They don't want to please you, they just want to find the truth.
I was sitting with these youth.
And I was asking, what does it mean?
What are you here for? Why did your parents in your forefathers come to Scotland
to trade to become rich to become wealthy?
Or is it because they wanted to? please Allah subhanho wa Taala?
Is it because they want to take his lamb and the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala as being the most highest and the most venerated?
Or is it because they just wanted a comfortable life.
The difference my brothers and sisters, between those companions,
medic in dinar, the son of dinar.
And the likes of some of the companions that came to India, like for me and Sally, who was one of the 313 people that actually fought in
What is the difference? How can we define ourselves? Who are we? Why are we here in this room, and at the end of the one hour session with these children, they said, We know why we're here. It was so simple, but it's something that we've forgotten to do with our children. It's something we've actually forgotten to do, just to sit them down and make it a, b, c, d, the ABC of Islam, Islam into submit to the world comes, if you submit to the will of gods, and you listen to His commandments of
the greatest man that was ever created, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam you will get peace in this world because there's justice is to bring justice is divine justice, to establish the rules of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the land.
And then after that, if you do these things, you will find your life becomes better here in this dunya you you get higher, Baraka
and the people around you will see that
this is why my brothers and sisters, that when those companions went to India today, one of those companions that I just mentioned, if you look at his situation when he meets a lot, that there's 154 million Muslims practicing Islam today in India.
So what is the condition of this man? When he meets Allah subhanho wa Taala according to a Sahih Hadith, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned that whatever good you encourage or educate a person to do, you will find it on your own on the day of judgments
150 4 million people making ATIA making CEA reading,
making such crying to Allah giving, giving all of these things on Amazon and he goes on his knees and of course, he called the people to Islam, and he was the first person.
This is the nature of the Dow.
This is the nature of the Dow.
And I want to tell you, about a man
who had taken this message seriously. And he was living in Liverpool. And the time was 1818 and 1889. For you to be anything but a Christian was a crime.
It was a crime in indeed, some people would come and try to murder you if you said that you know that Christianity was not the religion of the truth.
Indeed, my brothers and sisters, this man he traveled to Morocco and then he came back to liberal. He was a solicitor by trade and he was one of the most famous legal representatives in the northwest of England. And so, power law, this man
he strove to implement the some of the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he knew the first thing he had to do was to establish the masters.
Just like if you go to India,
in America, even Dena, he established a Masjid in Hara, Juma Masjid
in 620. Now,
he established the master the first thing he did was,
he did the same thing when he went to immediately establish the masjid, first Koba and then he established the medieval mystics.
And after this After establishing the master, great risk to his personal self, to itself.
On the day he decided to open it.
He decided to open the messages on which day brothers and sisters on which day
on Christmas day
because there were no Muslims around, he decided to take one of the festivals of the Christians and he opened the masjid and he fed 1000 people on that day. People from the streets young kids
From the street who had nothing to eat on that day, and the Christians couldn't be bothered with them, he took off the street and he fed them. And that's how the masjid came to be open on that day, by the feeding of the poor of looking after miskeen.
The travelers, the wayfarer, as we'll talk through this semester,
the Dow was established in this messages in such a way, by the end, the end of 819 oh eight, it is recorded that there were 660 shareholders established from that Masjid alone in 1889 when it was a crime to be anything but a Christian.
And then after that, this man he works
a lot while he was sent him had sex, that you will be established like this in the paradise with me if you support the offer. So the man he opened up the Medina house orphanage in Liverpool, and he had hundreds of children, which he took off the street and treat them like orphans. And he gave them down. Most of them became Muslim.
Most of them they became Muslim, because they saw the teachings of Islam being actual,
the real, the real McCoy, the real deal
was a man that came to this man who are going to tell you the name of social.
And he was walking back from one of these talks because he used to give talks every second week or every third week in Liverpool town.
So he was giving, you know, his narration, and the man was convinced about Islam.
So he went back with him to the house. And on the way he said, I'm convinced about what you have said, and I want to ask you the question, What do I have to do to become Muslim? And he said, You have to testify there's only one God worthy of worship. He's not in his creation. He's not comparable to his creation. He is not reliant upon what his creation do. And Mohammed me not the loss of logo by lady was seller is indeed His Messenger, his final messenger is cutter. He is the seal of the prophets. Do you understand that? He said, Yes.
He said, in order for me to do this, according to Islam, I have to have two sons here and you have the seconds.
This is the nature of them they are
this is the nature of the doubt
that this can replicate itself over and over and over and over again.
Azure v Thor Wow, the reward is placed on the people that innovated in this issue, not innovative as in something wrong.
But they started it's they began it, they originated this
and this is what it can be like in Scotland.
Because as far as I can see, with the exception of one or two brothers, that I know Masha, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala.
There are very few people taking the hour to
Islam, the invitation of non Muslims to the beautiful teachings of Islam, very serious.
So what we see today
is the effects of effectively my brothers and sisters.
Years and years later on literally 120 years later on the case of Abdullah Pulliam, who was the first person to set up that center in Liverpool, the first Masjid in England was 1889.
That man has taken a lot of the action, he will take the shower, he will take the Azure of a lot of the things that go before.
Although the name Quilliam has been misused by another organization, so don't get that confused with Abdullah William Henry, William Abdullah Quilliam
I want to now discuss with you the second Masjid that was established in Liverpool
around 1950s to 16th they had a small house, then they established something else and it became this beautiful marble clad building, massive great big thing infrastructure, so on and so forth.
We did a Dao training workshop that we did a horizon of our own event similar to what we're doing today.
And part of the thing is I said, Look, let's not just talk, let's go and knock on the doors of the neighbors and we have the gift boxes.
So I knocked on the first door.
As this woman is at West Indian girl, woman, you look behind the thing, she closed quickly, because you saw we were wearing soaps, and you're gonna be under the, you know, the horizon bopis. She was familiar with the top.
She wasn't familiar with
regards to looking after the neighbors, because it was the first time anyone had visited her. In 30 years she'd been living in that place.
And nobody had visited.
She said to me, oh, you're from that place that plays loud music all the time and keep me away.
She thinks that music is being played in the masjid. She thinks my brothers and sisters, that Islam is something harmful to
some of the components, they rated that they were so worried about the rights of the neighbors upon themselves, that they have to look up to the neighbors, that they thought that when they died, they would have to inherit their wealth.
Somebody visit this one.
And explain this.
Because we came here other than for the demo.
We have to be honest with ourselves.
99.9% of us, we came in for the dunya we got the dunya.
We are living in a situation right now where our children are asking us questions that we cannot answer.
Our children are asking us questions about what are we doing?
What are we doing?
We say when Muslims when we don't care,
we don't care about the neighbors next door.
I see. When I travel around the place, the situation gets worse and worse. It doesn't get better and better.
And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that and the English rendition being he says that none of you are truly believed until you love for others of you love for yourself. And in the end, some of the classical scholars they say this is not.
This is insaan.
many This is brotherhood of man, meaning the Jamie Oliver, and Julie and Susan and the lives of these people when they're standing with us on the Day of Judgment, we've lived with them for 30 years.
We have no hope and
why we have no hope. Unless we start the Golden
Age says many of these ideas and verses will be discussed by the forthcoming sound.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala
he says warming up center colon women dialog.
Allah subhanho wa Taala when he is asking the question, Well, I mean,
Allah, Who is better speech than the one who calls to Allah, Who is better.
And first verses and I'm going to go back to that in order to finish this talk. The first second verse, the second commandment from Allah in the
Are you wrapped up in a garment or rise and wander?
This is essentially the message I want to give today. My brothers and sisters. We first of all we call ourselves and when I give a talk, I always call myself. I'm calling myself right now. I'm calling myself in the public arena so that you can ask me why you didn't get down yesterday you said why you didn't go to Glasgow Central and global people why you're talking Brother, you
don't just talk.
I want you to act with us. Because I'm no scholar. I'm no terrible student of a scholar and miskeen broadbean worse than all of you work together well
One thing I know is if we don't act according to this deem that we are,
we are a waste of space and Allah
Mohammed, he said Verily I will if you do not love this way,
I will exchange you for that.
I will exchange you for that too.
So, I asked a lot of panelists on
TV so his peace and blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the righteous companions followed that, and all those who followed that until this day as established until the Day of Judgment is established. I mean, I asked Allah subhanaw taala to help us to bring the message of Islam to Scotland.
I asked how
to make it understood. We do not need the evolution. We need Tao our mission, the solution from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We need to establish the deen of Islam
