This talk was delivered at the Islamic Center of Irving – Texas.
Karim Allah Allah Allah He was a big man in the Chateau La ilaha illallah wa sharmin Mohammed bin Abdullah who oversaw Salallahu alaihe salam
Hello Allah subhanho wa Taala Phil from Karim coolness in the Eco mode, every soul will face death.
Allah Spano, tala, he also taught us many things about this life.
One of the things I'd like to mention and remind myself about and all of us
is that this life is too short.
And we should appreciate every second of it.
Because we don't know which second is going to be the last.
You cannot live one second longer than what's written for you.
Nor will you die one second early.
I'm mentioning this because of course, we're coming from a funeral today.
A brother told me something on the phone today to convert to Islam.
He said what you're talking about only a convert can really feel and understand.
Because when a person dies, that's the end of their life here.
What we feel when a person dies,
is not death.
What we feel is abandonment. Somebody left us,
you know, maybe they owe this money, and we want the money. Or maybe there's somebody we would like to spend time with. And we know we can't do that anymore. Maybe it's somebody we shared secrets with. Maybe it's somebody who we really cared so much about in this life. And we had plans for usually,
parents pass away before the children. But sometimes it doesn't work like that. And if anybody has had a child die, you know, this is something very different.
You feel like it's not supposed to be that way.
We had plans. That little guy was going to be a basketball player, maybe he was going to be a soccer player. Maybe one beer doctor, maybe, maybe maybe maybe we had all these plans, how could it happen?
So that's one thing there another thing when somebody is not even a Muslim To start with, then what?
Because you will say to yourself, I should have done this, I should have done that.
Somebody you knew you cared about maybe somebody in your family is not Muslim,
which is one thing that bothers you.
But when they pass away, it's too late.
So whenever somebody that you care about
somebody in your family,
they didn't accept this lamb.
Then you feel really, really double sad.
Loss here and a bigger loss in here.
For us, you and I.
We understand what our purposes here. The vast majority of the people on this earth do not
even some of the Muslims by name, they don't really understand they don't get it.
I'm coming to you today from just being over in Kuwait, and Jordan.
Few weeks before that we were over in
the Emirates UAE.
I was also with john Fontane from the UK and he's bringing us some updates on that. He also was given some updates on what's going on in
Sweden, swing Norway.
I wanted to share two things with you and let you think about this. The first is that when I visited
Sweden the first time in Denmark in those countries.
I was shocked because it was the Muslim giving me the tour. And as he was going along he would tell us about the social benefits of living there. They have everything from the time you're born to the time
You die, they're trying to take care of all your needs. They've got everything from basic education and health care. They've got the system in place for people that have any kind of particular
liabilities or what they call handicap things like this.
Education, advanced education, higher education, they've got all of that.
Then when you get old, they've got that all taken care of place for you to go.
everything you need.
Even when you die, the
pitch and whatever's needed, make sure you get a decent burial.
Basically saying they take care of integral to the grave.
That's That's the point. He was trying to make all of the benefits that the government is in place there.
Then he said something that did hit me strange. We were standing on a bridge. I don't know if you've been to Stockholm or not. But Stockholm is the city of Ireland. So there's a lot of breaches.
we were the first.
I'm sorry, I want to give you the last he said we were the last
country to allow the Christians in, in the first to kick them out.
As though he thinks that I'm going to be impressed by that. I don't like it at all.
I don't see Christianity as being a big enemy to Islam.
According to the province, asalaam This is the closest people to us.
Then he went on to say that we are number one in the world.
atheism, yeah, number one in the world for atheism. Nobody got more atheist than we do percentage wise.
was like, why would we brag about this deal?
He said, Well, this is in the chamber of commerce kind of stuff. They want to tell people that there's an
atheist on the rise. Also, that gets rid of Christians. And again, I'm like, this is not this is not our goal. We're Muslims. We're not our goal is not to get rid of Christians.
Our goal is to deliver a message
Salman al Farsi was a Christian.
So anyway, the next thing he said to him were number one in the world for suicide.
I said okay, now what but that's it. No.
Oh, no. I guess
you really need to get cable. You know, I'm saying you gotta have something to do here. I know winters pretty rough there. You know, they get snowed in they got nothing to do but still.
We said that he pointed to the bridge that we're standing on and he said, you know what this bridge is famous for? I said, I have no idea.
He said this bridge is famous for people jumping off and killing themselves.
like whoa, so I walk over to the edges originally I looked down trying to see what you know how far it is down. I said there's no water down there. That's a highway he said yeah, that's why it was popular. If the fall doesn't kill your truck will
on the way to orebro
we want to go to borrow orebro several places around there. I heard the same thing again, number one
for atheist number one for suicide.
And that was a big mountain look kind of like a toasted marshmallows brown and shaped like a big old marshmallow. Giant old mountain that he said you know what that mountain is famous for? I thought maybe something in National Geographic something because it looked weird. I said tell me. He said people jumping off and killing themselves.
When I visited Denmark, I heard the same kind of stuff. Number one for atheists. Number one for suicide.
Norway. Same thing again. I visited Finland
and I'd kind of forgotten but pushed it out of my mind was over there.
That again, somebody told me you know what?
We're number one in the world for
I said, it seemed to me that there's some kind of
an off balance deal here.
Then you think about this, if somebody really is an atheist, someone was no theism about them. No belief in anything,
I guess that would mean that the laws that we're all familiar with, as far as commandments from Allah
if you don't believe in authority, and what demonstrates the law make if you're out in the middle of nowhere, and there's a stop sign.
And you feel like Well, there's no there's nothing on me if I go through it, I don't care. I'll just go through it. Why should I stop? There's no guards coming. Nobody's gonna see me. So I'm gonna keep going.
If this is the mentality
if everybody had that kind of mentality, this would be chaos.
tell you where two things I give you that I don't want to look at what Islam is telling us.
Last one, Tara told us in Surah Al Daria
unblemish autonomy gene, Mama Calico gene will insulate the abdomen.
Last said he didn't, he did not create gn in human beings Illa except
for a bada.
All of us who were created, every human created, was created to worship something.
whatever they want to, because the Lord does not force them to worship Him.
There would be no benefit in having a creation out here. And then having human beings worship Him. Because why? He has the angels who do that. Angels do that right now.
I don't know if you can read this from where you're sitting.
But this gives the whole meaning of it right here.
This gives the meaning if you want to give the meaning this is not the exact translation. But it's the meaning of what we're talking about. Law, law, law law is exactly the phrase. But let's put it down where the folks here in Texas can understand it. Worship the Creator, not what he created.
It's pretty simple.
We see what happened to date funeral.
One of my wife's relatives came up to me and he said we're watching you he said I just saw you on TV yesterday
in Bridgeport now, Bridgeport happens to be way out of the area for our antenna, our antennas not supposed to go past for work. So please don't call them up and tell them because they'll charge me more money.
But it was reaching out there to Bridgeport.
And I pulled this out. Just you know, I keep these in my pocket by the way like that for dour and the little deal because you're saying to them
ibadah for alcoholic not for the makuu the worship is for the Creator, not what he created it says rather than the website if they go to the website they're gonna see free television. They can watch guys TV champion 6.1 right here. How many of you have seen it on 26.1?
That's not enough. Most of you don't know it's there. Why should I pay for this thing? If you didn't watch it? It's free guys.
You got cable you pick me pay for cable? I'm a paying for cable.
I'm a paying for satellite.
How many don't even have a TV
on go to your house?
How many don't have a smartphone
it's in the shop right?
Okay, how many of you got your smartphone with you right now. We'll show you something free can have fun with pull it out real quick. Hold on one taking time away from this but I'll give you this.
Everybody's always taking pictures of me. I want to get even with y'all for Here we go.
Okay, everybody say Salaam Alaikum
Wa La This is Irving, Texas, right?
You're on Snapchat.
All right now tell you what we do.
Go to the app store or Play Store on your phone real quick.
And then type in.
Like it's one word just like that right there. There you go. Guide us. But make it one word that that in making, make it then put a dash after it or underscore to it. I don't think you need to, it'll show it should pop up and say TV. Xeloda does. Okay, download it, it's free.
install it. Now you got goddess TV right there. And it's live 24 hours a day. No commercials, no advertising. All the programs are either from piece TV or hooded TV, or our own generated programs. And then a lot of live programs that we do. Ordinarily, this would be a live program. But I'm here for different reasons. It was just come up yesterday. I had to get over here real quick. So that's why this was not advertised. Don't blame anybody for not telling you it was here. Nobody knew it this morning. I don't think you didn't know I didn't know what was going on. So we're here. Oh, and by the way, if you do this one thing and tell everybody tomorrow, we'll be here for you Juma second
clip but second football Juma will be here for that too. I want you to come out and be with me in the park. It's a lot easier than right.
It's scary, but it's not as bad as coming up for the first one.
A little bit easier.
Okay, everybody got it?
How many of you are watching it right now?
All right. You got it, install it and then
Sue it got
a phone striking to me. There we go.
That's the nice thing about these phones for people that are lonely you can talk to your phone right?
You know the iPhone. Siri.
Are you married?
She's got the weird answers for that is what we got going on right now. The last 15 minutes.
15 minutes every hour. Put to put on there with translation.
They each offer the sacrifice
Now I'm gonna ask you a question.
Do you realize first of all Do you realize
we're broadcasting this on satellite This is all over the United States and Canada on satellite also is broadcasting around the world on the app. It's broadcasting around the world on the internet. And we added the antennas like the one that's sitting in Midlothian right there broadcasting over here right now. 26.1
if you go out to Los Angeles, you can find this on channel 35.2.
If you're in New York or New Jersey, you can watch it on the antenna there. These are all free. You can watch it right there on channel 42.4. And then if you're in Columbus, Ohio is channel 32.5.
that what however we're putting it and what we're doing with it.
How would you like to have the reward for putting the Quran in that many houses
six hours a day. 15 minutes, times 24 comes out to six hours a day. Six hours a day.
Taking it right in. It's not a commercial.
I consider it to be a promotion for Islam for a long, every hour, because they want to see the next show. What are they going to say next? What are you going to do next?
And it's working. How many times have people come up to me the numbers and start open the conversation today?
When I showed this to the one who said he's watching me said you saw me yesterday, I pulled it out to give it to him and asked him just read this right here. Worship the Creator, not the creation.
This is a big guy, you know, the kinds of drugs the big pickup truck got big.
He started crying.
Like a baby.
Because it hidden. And I've seen this so many times, especially when I worked in prisons. Somebody you think this guy kill you with his bare hands
And yet, when they see Islam, they just break down and everything changes. Totally change.
I watched the lady one time, we gave Shahada to a lady in in the hallway outside of the mass egna convention.
In runners, she made Shahada. I saw this other lady stander, she's just crying and crying. And she went hurrying off, searches to down the hallway. Excuse me. Excuse me. Sir, I saw you back there with us. I couldn't help but no, she was crying. She said, Oh, it's so beautiful. You know? I said, What do you believe in God? Oh, I said, Oh, I couldn't handle that right now said you believe in God said yes, of course.
You see one? Yes. You want to do what he wants you to do? Oh, I don't know what he wants. I wish I know, if you knew would you do it? She said Yeah.
Okay, let me just share with you believe there's only one God has no part.
In it, you can have a direct relationship with him. No problem. Nobody in between. You don't have to worry about that. And
you want to do what he wants you to do. We've got a whole list of things that we know we're supposed to do. long list.
She accepted it made sure not to read.
Now that video has been circulated that was few years ago. But recently that video got circulated and went over 2 million hits.
Because somebody put it out there and said it was George Bush's daughter.
And I had to go nuts. Not funny, though, because that's a lie. And I had to get on there and on Facebook and tell everybody this is the video and that's not george bush's daughter.
That one got another I don't know, half a million here
at that, but
this, this now is one account to the part where the problem is brothers, sisters, the real problem is us.
The real problem is us.
We are doing more to stop people from coming to Islam
than we are helping them to get to Islam.
In don't think that that's just general in nature excused from that that's not true.
If you said Well, I'm coming to the masjid all the time. I'm living in the mercy practically I'm reading Koran, I'm doing solo.
My says one question how many people did you give Shabbat to today?
How many? How many people did you talk to and tell them and shown something to help them get close to Islam? Did you please do one today?
And one yesterday, at least
many Muslim have never even helped somebody get to Islam.
That means you'll be asked on the account.
The first thing and I've seen it again and again. The first thing that concerns a brand new Muslim.
They start thinking about the beloved ones. And they start thinking how can I tell them the message? My mother, my father, my aunt, my uncle, my cousin, my brother, my sister, my children, whoever it is, it's closest to them. That's the first thing they think of and I know because I thought of it. And I said my father right after I made sure. The first thing on my mind my father, I need my father to become almost because I don't want to go to gender and my father is not there
because it's the closest person to me.
Second after that my mother
and I didn't know how to tell him anything. All I knew how to do was try to debate because I thought the bait tape and they told me that was dour.
Well, that does make sure the Christians won't even listen to you.
Well, I've got something coming out and be talking about tomorrow too. But I'm gonna tell you tonight because somebody may not be here tomorrow, this may have to go somewhere else for Juma.
We've got a brand new thing that's coming out that's gonna help you do the Dow. I don't have them yet. I have the samples that we brought back, they work everything's in place. We have three primary clouds. I don't know if you know what clouds are. But these are, it's a multimillion dollar setup that we've put together, us and some other groups in different places. The 100 last this, by the way, if you got smartphones still out,
turn off the recording, I got something better for you.
You're gonna love this. Because you're gonna need your phone for go to the App Store real quick.
You don't follow directions. Turn off the phone.
Now go to the App Store.
I'm old, I can do that.
Go to the app store and you type in the letter I and then AM.
You are sh ID I more Should
I more [???].
download that app.
Now you will have peace TV who did TV Guide us TV. Doctors that Good night, Allah his stuff is in there. Mufti mink, is in there. These are all sub apps within the app. Amazing stuff, you will have more than you can imagine, and you'll not be able to go through it tonight. Tomorrow next week, you'll never find it into it so much. And that's just the people side. On the other side. The Quran is there recitation Is there a memorization is there, the Hadeeth there there, and the explanation behind the Quran is there.
And that's just opener, there's four full pages of sub apps that you can click on them.
And guess what, that's not the end of it.
This is just a small part.
What we did, we made an agreement with several groups to make it really happen. One of them is a book that I've been working with for years in Saudi, another one in UAE and another one and
it's called the Islamic router,
Islamic router, you just take out the other router you got put this in its place.
And when you do, all of that is updated from the clouds on a weekly basis, unless something really big happens in the world, then you'll get that downloaded to you right away. And you'll be able to see and understand what's really going on.
Also, it has a firewall built in it so that your children, your loved ones, are not going to accidentally go to something, it's going to take them out of Islam.
Instead of Facebook.
You can use
And instead of
YouTube, you got to be
so you got everything that they need.
You don't get you're not missing anything. Because a lot of this stuff that's over there, we'll bring over It's fine, it's not a problem.
We're not gonna bring over something, it's gonna take a good service.
This is a very extensive program.
And if you want the reward for
chipping in and helping it out, you can do that. And then see how easy that is. Again, use this if you How many of you don't have a smartphone with you tonight, if you don't have it here.
If you don't have it, well, I'll make it easy for you to memorize it. Okay. It's a telephone number that only has a few numbers in its real short. Number is four.
This is not the it's not the Egyptian four. By the way.
It's four. Okay, and the next number is one. And then 44441444. Let me hear you say
41444 yet, send the word Islam.
I don't think anybody has trouble remembering that it's a text message, send
Islam to 41444 right now. And watch what happens. Because this gives us a chance, even if you don't have the router, we still have a way to contact you every week and send you out something updates what's going on, this is taken off like wildfire, and it's only a couple weeks old,
is already doing. Now the router has a real big impact on your neighborhood, because it also offers free Wi Fi to your closest neighbors.
But they wind up getting the same stuff their garden, so they're not going to get you you're telling your neighbor about Islam. Then he goes and looks on the internet and goes, whoa, these guys are a bunch of lying terrorists right? Now, what are you gonna do,
but he's using your free Wi Fi.
And he's like, I saw this stuff on TV. But I want to know what's what he can type in the shake, Google app, all stuff I'm telling you can go find it right now it's out there. But we're combining it all together, I have 2900 websites that we're using for this. And how you can be a part of this is good. And like I said, 41444 never let you click, nothing will be charged you form. Otherwise, you have to actually click and go through to the website and see how you want to do this. And anybody who wants to order the router, you have to wait for us to have that in place. Because I'm not going to accept that until we get them over here in this country, we're bringing in 10,000 of
those to send out immediately to certain locations. And that instead of $180 a month,
we're gonna let people I mean, $180 for the piece and so much a month, we're gonna let whoever wants to sign up for $19 a month.
And that includes everything.
You can get free Wi Fi to your
wife or for your kids. You got your your whole deal. It doesn't include your internet costs, though you have to pay for yours. That's still the same thing. So this is what we've put together. Imagine that the television is still free, the websites are still free, the apps are still free. They have so many different apps out there a programs to learn Arabic language or in polluted with this. All of these things that there for one reason only
can help people know what's the real message of Islam.
And I hope I pray that Allah will accept it from us. And you and we can find a way to make this better. For anybody who wants to do something tonight, you're free to take one of these home, would you put it on your bumper sticker on your car? Or just use them like I do? Because a lot of times when I'm out and I want to just hand something to somebody, it doesn't say you slam anywhere on there.
It doesn't. It just says guidance TV and worship to create what if they don't do anything but just read the message was the creator not creation and that did happen? That I know for sure. Because I'm gonna give the guy Shara. They called me up and they said come back to New York because there's a guy who saw this on my car.
And I don't know what to tell him. So when I was up there, the next week, we made an appointment, the guy came over again. He said yeah, I saw that in the car. It was in the back window because he hadn't put it on there yet. It's gonna get his car washed and then put it on. He said I said worship the Creator, not the creation. He said just grabbed me and made a lot of sense all of a sudden said okay, well.
The Creator is who he said God has said, yeah. So anything you have in this world that is more important to us and God. That's what your worship.
That's your partner, you may will get. If you get anything that you love more than your Lord, and even a person even yourself. You haven't reached the level yet. He said it made so much sense. 20 minutes we talked back and forth, and he made a chart. Next day he sent a text to my friend and he said
that was the best day of my life.
This day in my life, because all answers come, everything's clear you born in Islam, you take it for granted. Some and it amazes me when I hear Muslims who tell me, they doubt this and they doubt that I have a doubt about this. And then I think, how did you raise get raised up in a Muslim home? Nobody ever bothered to tell you.
But for those of you who would like to know, what should I do with a Muslim, or a new Muslim or somebody thinking about Islam, and I don't know where to start, if you're just do with the province of Islam said, you'll find it easy, and we made it easier for you. You start with Toshi,
when we're supposed to salami sent white bin Jabal down to Yemen. He said, I'm sending to the Africa tab the peoples of both Jews and Christians.
Teach them how he
was the first thing he said monotheism one god teach him that, then if they accept that, teach them about the Salah.
And if they accept that, then teach them about the Ramadan, and the Zika, and the heart, but everything step by step by step.
So how am I going to do that? We have a website, it's called God, Allah calm, simple as that, God allah.com. Now when you have the, the apps, it's even easier because they're all integrated. But for now, you want to go to God allah.com or share that with somebody else. You'll see it all right now. There's 20 questions that people asked, give them forms to those same 20 questions have been asked, ever since the time of Socrates and Plato,
way back, trying to make people disbelieve that's what the questions are there.
You want some example?
Give me an example.
Somebody wants to know.
And I heard it today, actually, somebody was saying this.
That they don't want to believe in God. Because if there's a God, then how come these bad things happen to good people.
Nice person does a lot of nice stuff. And all of a sudden they get cancer and die. For instance.
Another person is a good guy gives a lot of charity. And he winds up getting paralyzed. I'll give you a real life example, if you'd like it is tell you about a da da, da da was well, real great speaker for Islam really challenged a lot of people to wake up then
they knew something bad that we know.
So why did he spend the last nine and a half years of his life totally paralyzed? couldn't even move anything. But is that bold?
That's how I died.
So that would be a case where somebody civil Wow. And he was comparable to God, why would God let that happen to him?
He's got the answers very clear.
But if you don't know what it is, you'd be like, Huh. And I'm watching kids leave Islam. I'm seeing teenage kids going out of Islam won't even come up and told me she's wearing Hijab in Qatar, said I'm not a Muslim anymore.
I touch your country? She said, Yeah, my parents are very religious, but they don't know. I
said, I don't believe so. Why
don't you give me this kind of questions. And I said, you don't know the answer. She said, we'll ask my mother. She said as your father is my father. He said he's too busy. Just have faith believe in that.
Where did you get the questions because she gave me these questions. And they were a little bit over her head. So I'm trying to figure out what she got. She said the teachers they had brought all these teachers from other countries. Atheists they brought in
gentlemen, they're not trying to convert them.
They're just trying to get them leave Islam.
They do the same thing as Christians.
They want the Christians to leave Christianity they want the Jews to become
because in their mind, that's the solution to everything because they blame everything on religion. Well, I don't disagree with him completely. Because Allah is the one is making all this stuff happen.
But whether you believe or don't believe it's not going to change what Hello
it and you sure I'm going to put it into wars? Because the wars are not without religion anyway, not early. That's the stimulus they used to get people to go out and kill each other so they can sell more bombs in guns and weapons.
This is what's real good real story, right? So think about it.
understanding this al Qaeda or the monetarism, those 20 questions got along really help. It'll help you're down with it'll help a lot of people use it.
And then keep watching the channel because we bring out new stuff every day, every day every day. That's it speeches over Get out of here
works for you
to continue with Java
I've been watching TV for so long is wonderful to see you in person.
