in today's clip is on the word, Dean 11th honor began in the Arabic language. Dean is translated to the English language, almost always, as the word religion
I would tell you, it's not wrong. But it's not complete. Is that a good way to say it? It's not wrong, but it's not complete. Like the word Islam when you say Islam is peace, and I've lectured on it so many times. Islam doesn't mean peace. It's not wrong. But it's not complete.
We never agreed each other saying Islam alikoum do we know? Because Salaam is a part of Islam. So it's they're not wrong, but not complete.
But today, we're talking about another word. The word we're talking about now is Dean.
I want to share with you something so you get the gravity
of what I'm talking about the impact of this word.
While I was studying my Bible, back in the day, when I used to do the preaching,
I was curious to know why in the book of Acts of the Apostles.
There was a word that was capitalized. So I thought maybe it's an accident is a capital W on this word, and I said Why? So I looked at other translations of the Bible, they always have capital W, this would imply that it is a proper noun, the name of a group or an organization is a proper noun.
If I said to you in the Arabic language
that these people
are Latina, aha key tab, you would know that I met these people are people of the book, they are Jews or Christians, you will know that, I hope the tab
What if I said to you, not new?
most of you know what's the Arabic language but just in case a whole means that people have something.
And if I said Ah, whoa, whoa, Dean, people have the dean. And if I say nothing new that means we
keytab We are the people of the ball. Right? I was. But now we would say not new. Dean. We are the people of the dean is right. Everybody with me? Okay.
that's exactly what I found out was in the old
manuscripts for the Bible,
the people that Paul or Saul was killing he used to, he said, I used to kill them. I used to kill the these. We call them Christians today, but they weren't called Christians. Then even it says in their Bible, they were never called Christians. Do you know that? You know, the Bible says they were never called Christians until they went to a place called Antioch.
Never called Christians so they went to Antioch. So over they called when Jesus was still there.
He said, Paul said,
the people of the way
and they capitalize the W.
I want you to compare something in your mind if the Bible was right, and I said if, if it was right
there, we're calling them the people of the way that's Aberdeen.
And we are holding a relative from the Quran. By the way, the only accepted Dean with a lot is Al Islam, in the Dena in the local Islam. That's the Quran. Sir, I'm on chapter three verse 19.
I also read to you chapter five, verse three
portion of it. And sir all Maya when Allah says Aoyama ACMA to Aleppo, Dena Kumar. alikhan. Nikki, we're ready to record Islamic DNA. Now you heard it twice in there.
You heard it twice. Did you hear your dean Dean two times. And Allah says on this day have I perfected for you your dean
conferred upon you my biggest nama net Mati. That's the possessive of nama, not him. Nikki. There's a place in gender called gender tomainia. So look what I was telling you. The biggest biggest favor that he could possibly confer upon you, and he has told you what it is. And then he says, and have chosen for you to submit, surrender.
in sincerity and in peace.
Allah Islam, that's the word now you know what? Islam? That's the meaning of Islam. And to do it as your way your deen. So Islam a demon is the peaceful surrender to God
as a way of life. So now we have a better understanding the word Dean, we can say, it's our way of life. And every buddy has a dean, I want to share with you one more.
One more I have for this part of the cookbook.
So many people are asking us, even from the Muslims is shocked me, when our own kids are asking us questions like this, it should be basic, they should have known it when they were five years old. But I got university students coming up and asking questions.
The answer is so simple. It's right in front of you.
But I guess when you're growing up in a community of people that are confused, that confusion runs over on all of us.
I'm sorry to say, but
why are we here? What's our purpose in life? And it's not a rhetorical question. They really managed said, Well, why are we here? If God is so merciful? Hmm. Why did he create a Hellfire? Wow, you don't even know why you're here. Do you know why is there any difficulty for human beings? If there's a God? Who says this? The God said this a long time ago? If there's a God, how come we're suffering? What God is God mad at us? Why are we suffering? Was there hardship? Why are there tornadoes and hurricanes and tsunamis? Were there earthquakes, volcanoes, why are big giant mudslides, rainstorms, people dying? And I say Where are their wars and rumors of wars? Why is this
going on? Like it is? It's horrible. So where is the Guardian all of this? And we're hearing Muslims asking that kind of question. It means what it means you must have been absent on the first day because that's what you're supposed to learn from the beginning. Let's go to the ayah and see what it says
sure of Daria
chapter 51 verse 56, Allah answered all my questions and when I read it the first time in translation. Oh is still brand new. Mmm hmm. Wow. First time through the Quran.
And I came to this one. And I screamed, I was in an apartment right? And I'm sure my neighbors are like, what's the matter with that guy? I scream down. This is it.
Is it for sure?
Well, ma Jin, well, in Italy Avenue,
your purpose of life? Why are you here? What's it all about? understand from this verse? Of course, if I had the Pepsi or would have been even easier, but a lot of guys who will have the law got it. translators said
that our law says, The meaning of it
and it starts negative, Allah said, I did not listen to this. I did not create jinn and human beings Illa except for a Bada, Bada to a law ibadah and we'll give a meaning of that is a form of
self indentured servitude.
That's a big way to say slavery. Self indentured servitude, means I'm giving myself willingly and openly and surrendering completely to my Lord.
you, I am
ready to go. Tell me, I'm done.
Yours, Ubuntu You, You created me. It's about time I did what I'm here to do. And all you want me to do when I worship worship Allah.
But make it as a what? Now we come to the word Dean.
As your way of life.
Some thought go into a church or a synagogue, or a temple
is the worship. Go in, do your thing, right? Pray to your gods, whatever they are. And but when you go out into the street, Hey, no.
That's in there. I don't have to be nice out here. But when I'm in the masjid, the mosque right? Then I'm going to be nice guy. humble, sweet, kind, honest. But when I go outside, forget about it.
That means there's no Dean there. That's not the dean. That's not the Dean of a law. That's what
what we're talking about.
is fake. That's not the state. Because the is your way, no matter where you are, what you're doing. Of course, in our Deen we worship Allah alone without any partners.
We know to follow the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. It's part of our team. We know also five times a day, hunt saltwater, saltwater hunts. Five times a day we stopped and we established and that's another word. When you say prayer, not wrong, but it's not complete.
Prayer is this help?
Gimme, that's prayer.
I need I want this prayer.
When we got it something much bigger. Has this in it. This is called an Arabic.
But when I do so love, there's dry in it. But there's dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala.
Then there's something called symbol for the symbol, connection. Nobody has connection with a law except the Muslims because we're the only ones who have sulla This is what what he This is a gift, a part of the nama veloce upon whatever the name of Allah is the cielo, the prayers that we do. So if you said prayer, you're not wrong. But it's not complete. If you said Islam is peace, you're not wrong, but it's not complete. If you say Dean is religion,
not wrong, but you're very incomplete. This is why in summation, I encourage all of us, myself included, of course,
to spend as much time as possible, learning and understanding the RMB the Arabic language, the first or the classical Arabic, so that we can get a better grasp. And then when people ask us questions, you'll be able to communicate this in a better way.
May Allah subhanaw taala make us for those who have this understanding?
This dedication, the Ficker for this Deen of Allah Islam
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salaam Samara so la vie Allah Allah He was a big man. He
now has a lot of a lot of men who are the journalists to me
I said this in the first code book, and again in the second foot book, I tried to say it in all of the talks that I do, I say, humbler Praise to Allah, the the one jhana made us muslimeen servants to him in peace
is not the best translation. But again, it's not wrong. It's not complete, need to have an encyclopedia, sometimes to bring this beautiful, wonderful message of peace, tolerance, love, understanding. And if there's anything on the planet that's holistic, it's got to be Islam, because it includes everything. Anything and everything you want to talk about Islam addresses that.
There's nothing left to make up on your own. You want to know what to do. you internalize, go into your own heart and say what I said 25 years ago. Say what? What? a Pentecostal Bishop, who joins us today here now, said two weeks ago, what his son said last week.
God, guide me. If you're sincere when you say that there's no doubt in my mind, a loss upon whatever God Almighty He will guide anyone who says it was sincerity, and they will find themselves on the dean, the Dean of a loss panto.
after a lot of guidance to this
is to hold on to it.
Want to go back to something that we hear that your mom's always saying? Almost always in the gym or whatnot.
But then I want to just read a little bit further into the Quran. And let us think about it. However, Letterman shun regime.
Yeah, you live Dina amanu tequila haka to cut the heat a lot among tuning in our anti muslim moon. Why test c mu b. hubballi. La. Hey, Jimmy.
What a beautiful understanding that comes with this. The simple addition under the first part, you're probably very familiar with
you in the denominator. Oh, those who have come to the right Eman or faith in Islam.
Have tougher for a lot of tough what we said in other programs is a shield against the laws of God, His anger, his wrath on the Day of Judgment.
And don't die. It's his right by the way. It's his right that you will have this taqwa.
Some people call it God consciousness, fear of law. Some call it righteousness and piety.
And again, it's not wrong, but it's not complete.
To have the shield stuck or for a wall, it's a loss. Right? And then he says don't die or lotto tune Illa want Muslim accepting you're in a state of surrender, submission, obedience, sincerity and peace with your Creator. And all of those words are necessary, by the way. And there's more. There's more. But these are the principal ones.
To get a better understanding what I was saying.
I get so excited when I think it's in front of us. Just take some time.
Go to the scholars
I rely heavily on English. Even though studying Arabic I keep coming back. How am I going to say it in English? Why is I'm not not learning Arabic language.
So that I can get a wife who speaks Arabic, that's not my game.
And I'm not learning the Arabic language. So I can go into a restaurant and order everything on the menu in Arabic.
I want to know what it means. So I can tell the people here in my country, what really slim is about.
I'm tired of picking up a newspaper reading a magazine, listening to the radio or seeing on television, the opposite. the very opposite of Islam being presented as radical Muslims, extremist Islamic
it's time brothers and sisters in Islam, that you and I get this right understanding. We don't need to go to the street with a bunch of banners and shouting and little cute things that you're going to say go to Facebook and put
stuff out there and
we don't have the basic ourself.
Somebody asked me English language, some of you know much more than me. I know that.
But in English when somebody asked you
about Islam, even Allah,
Allah doesn't mean God.
Illa means God. Allah is his name.
Eric Arabs that are talked to another country said, Really? I didn't think of that.
What did you think, guys? This is something big.
In the last couple minutes, I want to tell you about something. We're going to continue this tonight by the way, we have a live broadcast. We're going to be broadcasting live from this center, first time ever guidance, TV broadcast live, or Rebroadcast or even recorded anything here at your center.
And I want to encourage you to come and bring with you some who don't know Islam and they don't have to be a so called Christian or non Muslim. They can be Muslims who don't know Islam but bring people with you when you come tonight.
You think you got some people here I want you to bring saw that we don't have Roman this entire facility for everybody. We need to do that. Brothers, you will create it and you're put on this earth for a reason. And I read it to you already. Will Mahalo to Jin Hwan in Sylvania. But Dune brothers. It is our understanding. I'm talking with some of the brothers here, and knowledgeable brothers here in your community. It's our understanding that something that you've got right in front of you do not take this for granted.
Do not take Islam for granted. Don't take a law for granted. Do not take this establishment for granted. I would like to encourage you to help me tonight, blast the world because we are broadcasting on goddess TV around the entire world on the internet and a new thing called apps.
Over 50% of all the people watching goddess TV today around the world are watching us on their handheld devices.
We have also antennas right now, broadcasting in Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Dallas, and Fort Worth, and Columbus, Ohio.
And until yesterday, until yesterday, I had no idea what I'm going to tell you right now.
I had a chance to get an antenna for Gary's TV in Nashville, Tennessee. And I laughed and said, who would need that? There's no Muslims there.
And when I came in and saw this, I said, Oh my goodness, you have a gift from Allah in front of you. If you do not use this. There's a big punishment waiting. But if we will do this and put this place to work, I see with my eyes inshallah, to Allah, the solution for Muslims around the world coming from right here.
True or false? True or false? The Killing in the jungle is called the lion.
The lion Yeah.
True or false? If that's true, why? elephants are bigger. hippopotamus is way more giraffes have a longer neck.
The Cheetah can outrun the lion. So why is he the king of the jungle?
Because of his voice. His voice scares everything from ants to elephants. His voice puts terror. Yes, terror. You want to know who's the terrorist in the jungle? The lion
because of his voice. When you have no voice in today's world, you're nobody.
Here now in this establishment where we are right this minute. You've got the chance. You got the place. This is the place.
You're not even using half of this building yet. Do you know that?
40% of the building. It's beautiful.
What about the other 60%
whatever you did in the past mail, I'll reward you. But it's not enough.
How many of you think you did enough slot Now you don't have to pray the rest of your life. Huh?
So whatever you did,
before May Allah accept it, I'm asking a lot, except every single thing you did, and I'm telling you now it's time to get serious.
Get really serious.
Let's put our hands together and not here's my commitment to this community and to Allah subhanho wa Taala
I am ready to do whatever Allah will let me do. And let us do my team to come and be a part of your community with goddess TV and do whatever it takes to make the people of the world stand up and take notice of a real lion when we roar out and say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad or a zoo law,
but I want them to know what we meant, so that they don't become so scared and start immediately trying to make some kind of campaign against us. And when we say Allahu Akbar, I want to hear from them. I mean,
I don't need to hear from them. Oh, these terrorists are. This is all wrong. And it's our fault brothers and sisters.
Don't tell me over so few.
Don't say that to me.
I don't buy it.
He mom asked me to go exits to five minutes, I wanted to end at 130 but I'm going to do what he asked me to do.
And only use this time for something that the province Haslam told us about. I usually do this in the lectures but not in the gym, but I'm going to do it now inshallah.
Talking about predictions, prophecies of our Prophet sallallaahu salam. And I'm going to ask you to think and reflect with me while I'm speaking.
Our Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not a god, he was not a son of a God, but he was the best of human beings to carry the message, that there's nobody to worship, there's nothing to worship. There's nothing in the universe to worship, except the Creator, and the Sustainer.
And he is the one Mohammed summarized Salaam, who we say peace and blessings be upon him, who told us about our condition that would come eventually. And I asked you only to reflect with me now. Are we in that condition? Let's talk about the hadith of gibreel la Salaam, the end of the hadith of jabril. And that's when Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam was asked by the angel Gabriel. When is the hour? He said, I don't know. And you don't know. I don't know. And you don't know. But the signs are and he gave two of the signs
when the slave gives birth to their own master, and when you see the poor Arabs you can't really translate this into English perfectly. But when you see the poor desert Arabs competing to build the tallest buildings in the world.
Burj Khalifa today is the tallest building in the world. It's in UAE and Dubai.
tallest clock in the world is in Mecca.
tall buildings. Where, exactly and who built them? These people were absolutely destitute. These were the most impoverished human beings on the planet until oil come about 6070 years ago, yes or no? Yes.
Allah gave them that and what are they doing with it? tall buildings, sir choices, their money, but they're doing it.
And mothers today giving birth to their own masters? How many times you've been in a store or target Walmart somewhere and you see the child telling the Mother What to do?
Or worse, tell him to shut up.
Even if we have servants who work for us, we would never tell them to shut up. That's too disgraceful. That is too disrespectful. And I see kids telling their mother Shut up. Oh, I'm sorry. Yeah. Go sit in the car. Okay.
They think it's funny. They have TV shows. I don't even tell you all the shows that they have insulting the humanity across the board, putting down the family concept and destroying religion constantly, constantly. And again, I
won't go into that right now. We'll talk about it tonight. But the other heads resource us mom this what we're gonna end with.
He told his companions
there will come a day when your enemies will be inviting. They will be inviting each other to you. To destroy you. Like you call people to come to a feast. When you have food. You're like come on, come on. Please. Come on. Would you join us we
Food come. And this is always been the Arabic way and now the Muslim way to call people to share right? And today look at your I mean, seriously, you don't have to go far. Look at the television look at the newspaper every single day right now.
Front headlines calling each other to come and let's go destroy Islam and the Muslims. Yes or no? If I'm wrong Tell me 70 right now.
I heard it on the TV last night.
I'm not stupid. You're not stupid.
The problem is, the people listening aren't stupid, but they don't have an alternative. Because we didn't give them a voice. Where's the voice from Islam? Where is the guidance from Islam? Where tonight we're going to talk about how you bring the people.
Now the end of the Hadeeth they asked for so Celeste.
Is it because we'll be so few in number?
Is it because we're going to be so few in number?
laughs No. He said you'll be everywhere on the earth.
or Muslims everywhere on the earth. You'll be everywhere on the earth, even in Nashville, Tennessee, you'll be everywhere on the earth. And we are.
But then he said, like the foam scum on a flood?
Are we like that?
Are we like that?
I'm asking you to reflect with me think? Is that our case? Are we aligned with no voice?
With the silent one watching all of the mayhem taking place every day where we don't say anything about it. We have no voice. Is that our case?
And so they asked, they asked Russell Salaam, what will be our condition? How could we be so many? How?
How can we be so many? And these people would be calling to us?
Islam is number one in number in the world today for religion? Did you know that?
whole young human beings alone comprise more in true Islam than any other faith group. Because Catholics and Protestants consider each other to be performed, you know, but for sure.
We're talking about all over the planet.
And what's our condition? And I asked you to think is it right what our prophet SAW Some said? What will be our condition? How to do
The love of the material world and the fear of death.
Is that our case? Yes or no?
And the Lord said lakum Deena, calm. While he Dean.
Everybody has a way. Even atheists have a way. They don't have a religion, but they haven't been. And they are in love with this Jr. This is their paradise. This is the only paradise they know they think they're gonna die and evaporate. This is their Dean. There's your real true inspired by the devil shut on
those poor poor people who have given up on everything. And again, because they don't have the message. Is it our job to get the message out? If it is, then don't leave this building. And till you have put your hands with our hands. support this effort here in this building, support guidance TV, there'll be boxes when you go out the door where you can do that just exactly that. I want you to take whatever you have and put it in the box for this machine. Support guidance TV as you can. But listen to me. That's not the end. That's the beginning. That's the beginning show allow you're not in love with this dunya show a law you are not in love with what he created. You're in love with
the creator and pick up the bumper sticker that says that on it. Worship the Creator, not the creation.
And then it just says God is TV. Put that bumper sticker on your vehicle and get that message out. zamolo here I asked a lot supanova tala to accept from all
have us to forgive me. If I made any mistakes whatever I said or did was good is from a law mistakes are from myself.
