$100 bill on me and you're watching Gaddis TV coming to you live all the way from right here in mem face, Tennessee here.

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

Dora heard a hallelujah.

00:00:16--> 00:00:18

Yeah, I know where we are.

00:00:21--> 00:00:34

We're actually Memphis is been labeled as the buckle on the Bible Belt. Did you know that? This is the buckle on the Bible? Where'd this come from?

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

No, no, no, it's okay. I take it number

00:00:42--> 00:00:44

K? Yeah

00:00:47--> 00:01:08

you know what? I'm gonna tell you something, the sea in the water thing. I'm gonna tell you something. The other night somebody brought me a bottle of water. And I said, Oh, thank you very much. You know? Because I like good water to drink water that you know you're sure of and I looked on it. And it's from the same neighborhood where I live and we never drink the water there.

00:01:10--> 00:01:16

I said You're joking, right? This the same place in California where I live? No way.

00:01:17--> 00:01:32

Anyway, I'm the letter Bellamy. This brings us to one of our topics that we're talking about. About people being worried about what they drink what they eat. And now even who you shake hands with

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

because

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

scuze me

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

so don't worry about it.

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

Whoa

00:01:46--> 00:01:52

was it mean you already got it right? Everybody got but it's not really a joke is it's not funny

00:01:56--> 00:02:11

but most of you I don't think you need to worry because I think I'm like the oldest guy here and that they said that mostly it just happens to old people that are in firm. So if there's one in the room

00:02:13--> 00:02:23

Yeah, all right. Anyhow, so did you know there is something in Islam for this if I buy got it on my phone?

00:02:25--> 00:02:32

There is a door odd that the Prophet used to say for exactly this. Would anybody like to know what it is?

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

And we'd like to know

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

the problem I forgot my glasses again.

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

I can't read it. I can't see it.

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

No, it's in my house in California. We'll wait

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

so yeah, maybe I can make it bigger.

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

I think you can do that with this phone. Right?

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

Let me see. Oh, yeah. I can make it bigger.

00:03:16--> 00:03:24

It's a dua that you make, seeking refuge with Allah from skin diseases, skin disease. All right.

00:03:25--> 00:03:31

And and I had a reaction to roses one time, insanity.

00:03:32--> 00:03:44

Watch the program and you can figure that one out. Leprosy and all major illnesses. This is a dua for all of this in one dua of them.

00:03:45--> 00:03:58

This is from the province that's Nami said Allahumma inni our own Vika min Alaba Bara Barassi Well, ju Nguni Well, Joe Thami

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

why Minsi

00:04:02--> 00:04:11

as calm that are getting right. How many know this one? Yeah. How close was I? 5050? Yeah.

00:04:12--> 00:04:21

More than 5050 so porn on low. Alright, with no glasses. That's pretty cool. So this dua

00:04:23--> 00:04:29

if a person is having a man in Allah, and he's making this dua

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

This is seeking refuge with Allah, the Creator of the universe. And I've talked to doctors, maybe. Do we have any doctors here tonight? Any medical in the medical profession? Let's do that. Okay. All right. So any doctor who has been doctoring for a while, you can ask him Did you ever see anything? That was really strange, and even before you say

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

What you mean by strange? You'll see Yeah, yeah. seems strange things like a patient who is nothing wrong with them, you check them out, they're good to go. And then they like, get real sick or die the very next day that can happen.

00:05:19--> 00:05:23

And I'm going to talk about in a car wreck this so called natural causes.

00:05:24--> 00:05:30

Also, somebody could be diagnosed with some real horrible thing.

00:05:31--> 00:05:43

And then a few months later, they come back and they there's no trace of it. Then you start suspecting that maybe, maybe somebody made a mistake in the lab. Maybe they mixed up somebody else's

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

report or whatever could be you know,

00:05:48--> 00:05:54

but actually, in the reality of things, everything is really up to Allah. Is that right?

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

And I've had medical doctors

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

from the Arab countries especially but from everywhere Muslims, who when they tell you take this medicine, and inshallah it will help, but they like to say you Inshallah, or thank you so much.

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

Thank you so much

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

yeah, hamdulillah

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

just remembered something. I just remembered something.

00:06:36--> 00:06:45

You know, you can say Bismillah under your breath, just like, you know, you don't even have to move your lips when you eat or drink.

00:06:46--> 00:06:54

So my little daughter when we were first coming into Islam, she was new to everything just like I was when she was little. So one time

00:06:55--> 00:07:11

we're eating she said, Daddy, did you say Bismillah said yeah, I didn't hear you. So I said Bismillah she said yeah, but you're already eating. So now you have to say Bismillah here whoa, Carol

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

Okay, Bismillah here won the war. Okay.

00:07:25--> 00:07:34

It is good for us to set the example for our children if we're going to be an example for them. Set the example mashallah

00:07:35--> 00:07:47

we've been talking now about a couple of things before we started the program up I was telling the brothers and sisters hear about an ayah in the Quran actually a surah in the Quran.

00:07:48--> 00:08:12

And Hadith of the prophets of Allah wa salam, the, the surah is called Surah a class and it goes like this. How will I measure it on a resume? Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, qu Allah Allahu Ahad Allahu Samad. Lem, your lid will learn, you learn wallum, your cool local, one 100.

00:08:14--> 00:08:36

The meaning of it plus or minus in English. This is really about monotheism or tell heed in Arabic language, because it's featuring exactly who God is and who he isn't. It's saying, say, the first word is say, now we find this in the Bible. We find this in the Bible.

00:08:37--> 00:08:56

In the book of Jeremiah, there are a number of the verses that start out, say, essay. Why, just like that. So this is for anybody who doesn't know much about Islam. And you hear this and you say, what is it say, Cool?

00:08:57--> 00:09:01

Well, it's coming from the same God. All right.

00:09:03--> 00:09:17

And by the way, he didn't take my permission to send it so I don't know. All right, let's, let's leave it at that. Anyway, it says cool. Who Allahu Ahad say he is a law.

00:09:19--> 00:09:43

Ahead. Now what is ahead. That's why I said monotheism, mono meaning one, mono is one a mono a mono lithic me means something is one by itself. Or a mono line, if you're using for fishing is just like one line mono. So this is the idea of mono.

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

I had

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

an Arabic when you're counting the word for one is why head why head if not the Lhasa Arba comes like this

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

But when you come to this word,

00:10:05--> 00:10:15

it's different. But it's from the same root I had and why had that sounds alike but you just reverse something. Why had a head?

00:10:19--> 00:10:28

Was it difference? Because no two is going to come after it. It means uniquely one, there's not anything else like it.

00:10:30--> 00:10:40

So that sets a tone for what we're going to say. Cool who Allahu Ahad say he is a law he is uniquely one,

00:10:41--> 00:10:59

Allahu Samad. Then it goes on to say And Allah is Samad what is Samad that's one of his names or attributes or characteristics. It's saying that he is independent of His creation. He doesn't need the creation.

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

But the creation needs him. He's totally independent of everything. He's not dependent on anything. That's one translation of it.

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

Then it goes on to say, hula hula hula had Allahu Samad them your lid? What is lamb? Lamb means no way. No way. Plain English No way. lamea did not the father

00:11:30--> 00:11:52

of anybody. Lam you lied. And not the son of anybody will love me or call the hoopoe forehead, and there's nothing like him at all. He is a had back to that subject of monotheism set cool.

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

Now,

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

for a Christian,

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

they might want to argue with that.

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

Because some Christians are saying Jesus is God.

00:12:05--> 00:12:10

Jesus never said done. Not even in the translations of the Bible. It didn't say that.

00:12:13--> 00:12:30

But it does say very clear in the Bible in the book in the Old Testament, in the book of Numbers, chapter 23, verse 19, it says it real crystal clear. God is not a man. Wow.

00:12:31--> 00:12:39

That he should sin and God is not the Son of man that he would need to repent

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

humans sin all humans make mistakes.

00:12:48--> 00:12:55

But by the way, FYI, for your information, that's why Allah created us.

00:12:56--> 00:13:03

He didn't create us to be angels did it Did Did you think that you were supposed to come into this life and not make mistakes?

00:13:05--> 00:13:28

I used to think that I used to think I was a real bad person because I made mistakes. When it comes to Islam, I found out no, you're supposed to make mistakes. Don't do it on purpose. That's a different kind of mistake. But you're supposed to make mistakes. Allah didn't create you to be perfect. That's what angels are for.

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

They are perfect.

00:13:32--> 00:13:34

But they have no choice.

00:13:35--> 00:13:52

or Now this opens the door for something else. You have a choice in everything you do. You have free choice. But by the way, I have to stop right here and give you another message. You do not have free will.

00:13:54--> 00:13:54

What

00:13:57--> 00:14:33

That's a misunderstanding and it's a misuse of the English language when you say somebody has free will they use it all the time. All the time you got people talking about I want my Free Will my free will that free will will means that you can will something to happen God does that Allah does that he will for the universe to be in existence. He willed for there to be light he will for there to be a world he will for you to be born. That's his will. He can do that. Now if you think you have will power

00:14:34--> 00:14:41

try it out. Let's find out if you do, maybe you do I don't know. Let's see.

00:14:44--> 00:14:51

Everybody liked Lamborghini. Is that okay? Can we go for Lamborghini? Is it all right? Maybe Bentley, something like that.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

Alright, so what I want you to do, just will that there's going to be

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

A Lamborghini with my name on the license plate in the parking lot when we get done. Weird minute, and a gas tank that never goes empty.

00:15:09--> 00:15:09

Go ahead.

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

We'll wait.

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

Actually, one time I was in a prison and we were talking with somebody, a group, actually, in one of them. He said,

00:15:23--> 00:15:31

I don't believe in God. I am my own God. I said, really? He said, Yes, I am. God to me.

00:15:33--> 00:15:40

Said, You mean you? You really get he said I have willpower? I said, Oh, really?

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

You can will yourself to do whatever you want to do. He said, Yes.

00:15:46--> 00:15:53

I said, okay, the rest of us in the prison right now, we're all curious to know why God wants to be in here.

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

Seriously?

00:16:02--> 00:16:22

Will Power is exclusive only for the one who has will and that's a law. What we do have, what we do have is choice. You have choices all the time, you can choose to try to do something.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

Will you do it?

00:16:26--> 00:16:57

Inshallah? Maybe Moonkin? Yeah, is that true? Maybe you will do it. Maybe you won't. But that was your choice. Or Nia, your intention. So once we understand this, now we're beginning to get the idea behind God and us there is a difference. We are not gods. We are not we were created by God.

00:16:59--> 00:17:10

And Allah created all of us in the perfect way that he wanted us to be created. And when we were born, we had the best relationship with Him.

00:17:11--> 00:17:16

innocent, innocent, a slum in Arabic.

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

All of us were born on Islam.

00:17:22--> 00:17:34

That's what the Prophet peace be upon him taught us. All of us were born in that condition. But it's our parents will raise us to come up to be Jews, Christians.

00:17:36--> 00:17:41

Juicy, you know, firewall shopper, or whatever we become, is that right?

00:17:42--> 00:18:10

Of course, the influence of what you grew up in the first seven years is really big. The Catholic Church used to say this, about converts, and raising the children up, they said get them before they're seven. Before they're eight before it's too late. Because the magic number seven right there they want to get because by seven years old, you pretty much got the direction you're gonna go in your life.

00:18:11--> 00:18:15

Get them before they're eight before it's too late. That's what they used to say.

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

Anyway,

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

to come back to the subject.

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

Choice, you have choices.

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

Do you know what my choices are going to be?

00:18:30--> 00:18:45

No, of course not. Do I know what your choices are going to be? No, of course not. Nobody knows anybody else's real choices. You can see what people do. But you don't know what their intention or they're near was that true or false.

00:18:46--> 00:18:57

But the one who created this, not only does he know all the choices you're going to make, he already knew the choices you would make before He created you.

00:18:58--> 00:19:10

But he created all of us on an even playing field. All of us were created equal in that we all have this one thing when we're starting out a slum.

00:19:12--> 00:19:48

Now, I want to jump to another subject and you think you can figure it out after you hear it. Suppose somebody goes into court and he has a lawyer with him. And the lawyer is going to defend this person against some charges. And now the judge is heard everything and he's gone. Sounds like this guy's pretty bad. The lawyer stands up and he said, and I want you to finish the statement for me. Okay? No, Your Honor. My client is as innocent as

00:19:51--> 00:19:55

newborn baby. Exactly.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Now, well, there's a problem with this

00:20:01--> 00:20:05

If you're a follower of the Old Testament, it says These babies are born in sin.

00:20:07--> 00:20:12

But that's not what Islam teaches. No, no babies are born innocent.

00:20:14--> 00:20:26

You're born into a family, maybe this making sense. And by the age seven, you're gonna pick it up. Yep, that is exactly what we know. But the baby itself is born innocent.

00:20:27--> 00:20:50

All right now, why am I talking about this? Because this is where a lot of our brothers and sisters Muslims are going out of Islam on this. It's called the clutter of Allah. Everybody knows what's covered put Jana if you know, it's called the river law. You got it? Clutter, okay.

00:20:52--> 00:20:55

Somebody doesn't know put your hand up, you don't know what's covered.

00:20:56--> 00:21:07

Okay, cutter, it means that Allah has everything already designed, already worked out. And it's all going to happen according to His plan.

00:21:08--> 00:21:17

There is nothing you can do to surprise Allah. Because he already knows everything that's going to happen even before he created.

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

There are many studies about this, but I'm going to skip over that for the benefit of the folks watching this at home, we're going to get to the point.

00:21:27--> 00:21:43

Some people will say, Well, if everything's already designed, that means no matter what I do, it was already prescribed for me. I have no option. I couldn't help it. Right? No, it's not right.

00:21:44--> 00:21:50

You always have the choice, yes or no? I said that you got choice. You don't have will.

00:21:52--> 00:21:59

Unless I've seen that Lamborghini in the parking lot with my license plate on it tonight. I know you don't have any will.

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

And by the way, I don't mind eating my words if you can make it happen.

00:22:09--> 00:22:30

But just focus for a minute on something. We are not God. So you and I, we can't even begin to comprehend the mentality. You're trying to put something like, put her ocean in a thimble you can't. That's crazy.

00:22:31--> 00:22:49

And Allah subhanaw taala has all of this all planned out. He could have created us and just put us as soon as he created us, he knew right away. This group is destined for hellfire. And this group is destined for Paradise.

00:22:52--> 00:22:59

He could have done that it would be so easy. And no fault of his butt.

00:23:02--> 00:23:09

The ones in the Paradise would be saying I must be here because I deserve it.

00:23:10--> 00:23:19

Yeah, I'm pretty cool. Look at me. I'm in Paradise, and the ones and the Hellfire will be saying what I do. I didn't even get a chance.

00:23:20--> 00:23:55

Now do you see? Now we go through this game, chess board of whatever it is that we're doing. Called the higher to dunya the life of this world. We go through this. And then when we die. Oh, good news. Good news. I have very good news. Everybody gets brought back. That's good news for an atheist because they don't believe that. There'll be brought back. Everybody gets brought back. Yes. Regardless of what religion you are, or lack of it, you will be brought back.

00:23:57--> 00:24:03

The bad news is not everybody's going to Jannah not everybody goes to paradise. Is that right?

00:24:04--> 00:24:08

Oops. Oops. Now we see the problem.

00:24:10--> 00:24:17

So what your choices are now Allah already knows. So how does it make it fair?

00:24:23--> 00:24:24

Do you know what's gonna happen?

00:24:26--> 00:24:26

I don't.

00:24:28--> 00:24:33

But he does. The reason it's fair is because you don't know.

00:24:34--> 00:24:37

You make your choices. You do your best.

00:24:39--> 00:24:42

Alone, do the rest. Simple as that.

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

We're going to take your short break. We're going to be right back right after this. But I want everybody to stay exactly where you are. Especially at home. Watch this. It's coming up right now. It's not a commercial. We don't do commercials but we got something we want to show you

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

So watch, stay there stay guided with guidance TV.

00:25:08--> 00:25:09

Thank you

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

40 seconds

00:25:14--> 00:25:21

our viewership has increased, almost doubled in the last year and a half.

00:25:22--> 00:25:41

And it keeps increasing on a daily basis we've seen just in this 2020, already an increase of about 20 to 25%. Across the board. And that's amazing considering that we have constantly

00:25:42--> 00:25:46

round a million viewers just on social media before we even talk about satellite.

00:25:48--> 00:26:01

Satellite covers all of Canada, all the United States, Hawaii, Alaska, even Bermuda, and parts of the Caribbean, and even a part of the northern Mexico.

00:26:03--> 00:26:08

Is that cool? Yeah. So when we go back on, I should say some in Spanish, right?

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

My Tex Mex went all by

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

mixed together, right?

00:26:23--> 00:26:24

It's a good chance for me to do this.

00:26:34--> 00:26:38

And we're back, we told you would just be just a short time.

00:26:39--> 00:27:17

I want to pick up exactly where we left off. We were talking about the color of Allah, we're talking about people's choices. We're talking about how it is that life is really fair. Sometimes people will say that's not fair. You're done. It's not fair. Life's not fair. Really, really, maybe the choices that you're making are not fair. Maybe the things that you're expecting are not fair. Maybe look at this. If Allah already knows everything that's going to happen, then why would we have to go through this?

00:27:19--> 00:27:20

It isn't for Allah.

00:27:22--> 00:27:28

Does Allah need us to do this, one of the big mistakes is to think that God needs us

00:27:29--> 00:27:44

that he needs our love, that he needs our obedience that he has no needs. We already determined that with the first part of the sewer that we read, Samad, he has no needs.

00:27:47--> 00:27:57

He doesn't need anything from any of us. If all of us came together, you know, the hadith of all the humans in Jinn came together

00:27:59--> 00:28:14

and tried to benefit alone. It won't help, it won't make a difference to him. And if all the humans in all of the jinn come together to try to take away something that won't, it won't take anything away from Allah, nothing.

00:28:17--> 00:28:22

So understand that you're only here in this life.

00:28:23--> 00:28:51

So that on the Day of Judgment, you have no excuse. Now, what about now, I think like this, my mother taught the retarded children, she that's what she did. So I saw a lot of these kids that can't really think straight. They can't they don't have the IQ for it. They don't have the makeup for it. So I asked him about that. They said this is mentioned in Hadith, that those who are not

00:28:52--> 00:28:58

able to comprehend. They'll only be asked what they could understand.

00:29:02--> 00:29:18

Have you ever noticed by the way I don't know if you had experience with special needs children, but some of them are very, very simple, very easy to love, and easy to be loving. Very simple.

00:29:20--> 00:29:24

Because they don't have this complicated idea of what I'm going to get out of this dunya.

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

So let's wrap this up and Anima t about the Hadith

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

the cutter of Allah

00:29:36--> 00:29:43

simply put is, Allah already knows the choices you make.

00:29:44--> 00:29:56

So how is it fair? Because you don't you don't know what choices you will make. You don't know what's going to happen.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

But he does, because he knows what's

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

gonna happen, he knows the choices you're going to make. So you're already destined wherever you're gonna go.

00:30:08--> 00:30:23

Now you could be on a path to go one way, really bad. But wake up, and then decide, You know what I need to change and you will change that destiny, because that really wasn't going to be your destiny anyway.

00:30:26--> 00:30:35

Because Allah knew you would change and that you would do the good things, hopefully, and be a true believer.

00:30:37--> 00:31:01

So that's the understanding of the clutter. And the Prophet says mommy said in the last days, that this is the problem Muslims would have over the clutter, and we have seen it. I've seen Muslims actually argue about this and they don't believe in it. Even some people calling to Islam saying that Allah doesn't know what's going to happen. what

00:31:02--> 00:31:21

his name is Allah Aleem Hello that means he is the knowledge it doesn't mean he has knowledge he is the knowledge there is no knowledge in the whole universe except that come from the One who created it. Yeah now mama Bina at him help him Allah you he turned to be shaman to me he loved me my child.

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

Wow.

00:31:25--> 00:31:33

He said it clear. He has all knowledge of everything and you don't have any knowledge except he gives it to you. Wow.

00:31:35--> 00:31:53

So yeah, he knows now let's go to the second one. The second one was the Hadith of the Prophet says salaam doing your sigil movement or genital Capra? Dunya What is dunya? It's a word in Arabic that is very low, low and a base. It is like

00:31:55--> 00:32:08

let me put it to you in Tennessee terms, Texas terms, Tennessee terms same thing. You will walk into a cow pasture you know, and I looked down at my booth and I look oh man has stepped in dunya

00:32:09--> 00:32:22

Yeah, you got that right there years ago. This is dunya. The higher the dunya. Higher means life. The life of this world higher to dunya.

00:32:23--> 00:32:40

And the provinces and me said a dunya citizen movement. What is surgeon what is surgeon? Prison jail. What is movement? A believer. So this world that we live in is a prison to a true believer.

00:32:43--> 00:32:46

What Janna and Paradise

00:32:48--> 00:33:33

I'll call for to the disbeliever the people who want to make this life that we're in a paradise are really the biggest suckers on the planet. suckler you know what you'd like a con man pulled a deal on you. And at the end, you got nothing. Now let's think think about it. Just a second. Hold on. Anybody seen Graceland? You've been by Graceland. You know how big it is? It's nice. So you want a house like Graceland? Okay. And it's got a big curve drive. And it's got a fountain in front of waters going all over the place. And you got to swim pool in the back tennis court over on the side. Yeah, you've got it. That's it. That's this is your house here. All right.

00:33:34--> 00:33:41

And maybe you got a Bentley, or a Lamborghini in the front yard in that circle drive. Whoa, all right.

00:33:44--> 00:33:53

And, ladies, you got a man with a six pack and not one that he carried in from the store. But actually the the, you know,

00:33:54--> 00:33:59

the stomach thing. Yeah. And you're like, that's cool.

00:34:00--> 00:34:05

And guys, you got Dolly Parton for your wife, okay.

00:34:09--> 00:34:13

This is your goal. This is your goal I want I want I want

00:34:16--> 00:34:17

actually

00:34:18--> 00:34:34

lusting for these things is exactly what the Bible tells us about. And the Quran tells us about and the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Islam all saying the same thing. If you're going after this world, use a big mistake.

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

Prophet Mohammed sorry, tsunami said anything you have more than what you need for a day is the excess.

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

Have you got enough to feed yourself for a day? Humble?

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

You got it.

00:34:52--> 00:34:55

You got enough for today? Good to go.

00:34:56--> 00:34:58

Everything you need for dunya is there

00:35:01--> 00:35:05

Is there anything in Islam said you have to have a PhD degree?

00:35:06--> 00:35:13

No. Is there anything in Islam that said you have to have a big Marble House? No.

00:35:14--> 00:35:22

In fact, when a person dies, how much of all of that they're going to take in the grave with them?

00:35:23--> 00:35:33

Now, some people in Texas, I don't know about Tennessee, but some people in Texas, they want to be buried with their favorite car.

00:35:34--> 00:35:37

They didn't know they put the card down in.

00:35:38--> 00:35:48

Can you imagine that poor guy in there when he finds out? Oh my God, what did I do hold this? This doesn't work.

00:35:50--> 00:36:00

All the things that you're working for this 50140140 1k 401 K, you can tell I don't have one right.

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

401 K.

00:36:05--> 00:36:12

Bank accounts, stocks, investments. I got this. I got that. Ah ha ha.

00:36:14--> 00:36:26

I'm not saying you. You shouldn't work and do things. But be sure what your Nia is for? Because if it's just you piling it up, I need that I have.

00:36:29--> 00:36:31

What is that? What is it?

00:36:32--> 00:36:41

This is a good example right here this? I didn't plan this. But this is a good example of what I'm talking about. How many do you need?

00:36:43--> 00:36:55

How many do you need? One? The only reason you'd have more than one is if it runs out of ink. Is that right? No, we're maybe like this in front of Allah.

00:36:56--> 00:37:03

We have a purpose. You have a purpose and the Quran tells us the purpose that you have.

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

What is our purpose?

00:37:08--> 00:37:14

Well, ma Calico, genuine ince, in Lillehammer, noon, Allah said it and Sir of better yet

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

that he only created us to worship Him alone.

00:37:24--> 00:38:07

That's what we were created to do. Just Worship God alone without any partners. That is the first commandment that we read in the book of Exodus in the Old Testament. I am the Lord your God that brought you out of the land of Egypt in the house of bondage. You know, no, God beside me. Beside me, there's no God, You shall have no other God beside me. And he said it three times like that is that it's kind of clear, right? Is that what we have? Yes, same thing. No God beside God. Now you're created to worship something. All people are created to worship something.

00:38:08--> 00:38:16

Did you know that? Oh, yeah. Even if they don't believe in God, they worship something. Have you ever seen people in football game?

00:38:17--> 00:38:27

To go crazy? Paint themselves up? And go nuts? Absolutely nuts. If you say something against their team, they're ready to kill you. Hmm? Is that not worship?

00:38:29--> 00:38:30

A team?

00:38:31--> 00:38:33

You're all excited about that.

00:38:34--> 00:38:43

To the extent that you're willing to go out and break somebody's head. Wow. But there are people that do that.

00:38:44--> 00:38:51

There are people that are so in love with some of the created things that they go nuts over it.

00:38:54--> 00:39:01

What we're talking about is very simply, are you worshiping something

00:39:02--> 00:39:13

other than the Creator? Because he created a lot of things. He said, I created you and what you do that's in the Quran. I created you and what you do.

00:39:14--> 00:39:18

Now, if this pen ran out of ink,

00:39:20--> 00:39:22

this pen right here ran out of ink.

00:39:24--> 00:39:25

What would you do?

00:39:28--> 00:39:29

Throw it away.

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

You don't need it.

00:39:33--> 00:39:47

And Allah didn't even need us to start with. We we determined that in the first part of this program. Allah doesn't need us anyway. So what if we don't do what we were created to do? Oh,

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

he tells us about these people. Now. You heard about nice people, right? This is a nice person. He's a good guy. He takes care of his neighbors no even

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

No my garbage can he pull my garbage can back up the street. All of the things that we know

00:40:06--> 00:40:10

about this guy is good stuff. But

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

but

00:40:13--> 00:40:41

he doesn't believe in God. The Quran tells us clearly that the one who didn't believe in God on the day of judgment that counseled all of his good deeds. And with that, I would like to encourage all of us to stay tuned right here to find out more about Islam, Muslims, and what you need to do what you don't need to do. Stay tuned, stay guided with guidance TV,

00:40:42--> 00:41:13

and Hamdulillah, rubella Alameen. So our program is not over here with us. It's just over there. I wanted to be sure that we understood that of the things that we have in this world have no real value to us in the grave, except for three, except for three. And this was from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi. Salam. He said, there are only three things that continue in the grave.

00:41:15--> 00:41:17

Has anybody heard this hadith before?

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

What's the first one?

00:41:22--> 00:41:23

Huh.

00:41:24--> 00:41:27

sadaqa jariya. All right.

00:41:32--> 00:41:52

Somebody's following along, after you're gone, have something you set up for teaching or learning, et cetera. And the third one, a righteous child is making dua for you. Now, based on what I just said, Would you like to have one of those three going on for you in the grave?

00:41:54--> 00:42:37

Are you willing to give a gallon of gas for it? One gallon of gas? Would you do that? Who would do that for one of those? Well, we have a special tonight. You can get all three of those for one gallon of gas $2 a day to sponsor a child who is needing education who is an orphan and by the way there's another Hadith of the Prophet says Swami said the one who takes care of the orphan is like this with me and Jana and this is the program we have mercy without limits into tell us more about it. We have Mohammed Hassan, Chef

00:42:38--> 00:42:39

do your thing.

00:42:40--> 00:42:43

Zack said on mighty comm Robin to library go to Spungen

00:42:45--> 00:43:12

to have an answer like we're going to have a question and answer session after I finished my six minutes presentation. I'm in London have the ability they can also do a cinema camera Serena la masala cinema Berek Rasheeda Muhammad Allah Arias habia Toby notability rainbow Sen Illuma de Dean law massage Amanda has that as your mom or home I was at a program embedded broken masuma, wetheral fina or Ivana chakra and Roma, My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, Sara Marie Guatemala. Hi.

00:43:14--> 00:43:56

My name is Muhammad Hassan, I work with this organization mercy without limits. We are not new in the field. And bla bla mean, we've been around for the last seven years. We have eight offices around the world, one in Turkey in Syria, in Iraq, Jordan, Bangladesh, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Lebanon. When we decided to help people out Subhan Rabbil aalameen. We have created many programs, but we focus only on one program which is orphans. And the reason for that because those children that they're supposed to grow up with safety with family with future, those children that they found themselves in the middle of conflict and they don't know why they became orphaned. They do not know

00:43:56--> 00:44:42

why they became in the middle of this conflict. Some of them are many of them. They don't know how to read or write. Many of them. They don't know how our what it looks like to sit in a classroom, in a school hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen mercy without limits when we decided to take care of the orphans. Each single orphan would get seven programs not just food and shelter, no food, shelter and clothes. This is given. We have something called psychological care, because those children that specially that they were born in the last five years, we have seen more this than life. We have education camera, but I mean imagine 1015 years from now if we did not educate our orphans today,

00:44:42--> 00:44:59

what kind of home are we going to have? We have something called physical as we do in here twice a year unless the kidney be to be seen by a doctor. And the last one which is mother education. We show the mother how can she take care of her orphans? Oh

00:45:00--> 00:45:46

All of these programs just cost $60 A month for 12 months. So Hanna Rabbil Alameen if we are talking about this life at the Sheikh was talking what $60 can be used for in this life. Maybe you can buy some groceries for $60 Maybe you can put some gas in your car for six years, but Subhanallah Blimey, what's in it for you if you decide to sponsor one orphan number one, you get a Rama Mustafa the blessings, the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa taala.

Also, you have the choice to sponsor a certain orphan from certain country hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen. You get to know everything you need to know about your orphan, not just that we facilitate for you if you want to a phone call through Skype, to talk to these orphans that you have sponsored. Not just that if you happen that you are traveling to one of these countries that I just mentioned, will facilitate for you to meet face to face with the orphans that you sponsor, because it's not

00:46:28--> 00:47:11

00:51:35--> 00:51:58

with NDB Mohamed salah, Moto cinnamon Jana, you're better raise your hands again, everybody pull out your cell phones. We're going to give you a simple link that you can send it to someone as well as opposed to on to your social media that you can help to deliver this message as well as to support our own orphan children. When should you think of these kids as if they are your own children? Why because they are.

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

They are all the times you guys see on social media about GoFundMe and whatnot like that helped to with my kids. Imagine that it's your children. But now again, I want you to know that it is your children. These are just my kids the same as they are your children. They are muslims they say later alarm Honduras or MOBA. So again, pull out your cell phones, pull out your cell phones, we're gonna do something that's very simple, very innovative, but that is very good way in order inshallah Tada to share this, pull out your cell phones, make a text message, pull out your cell phones, all of you don't make me come back there.

So, what you want to do is to make a text message, the phone number is 71777, the phone number again, 71777, you're going to send the message M as in mercy, w o LMWOL. Mercy without limits, send it to 71777 phone number again. 717777 the word M as in mercy, M Wol. Okay, M w o l 271777. Send that off.

And you could share it off in Shan matata.com located on or send it come on up the law you are gonna get

00:54:13--> 00:54:13

it

00:54:16--> 00:54:21

before we start, salmoni Komarov. Before we start with the question and answers,

00:54:23--> 00:54:24

I would like to first

00:54:26--> 00:54:46

finish off what we were just talking about. I said, that gallon of gas, I'm assuming that you will pay $1 $2 for gas, is that right? per gallon, right? So one gallon of gas a day will be 60 a month, is that right?

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

So if you could spare two gallons of gas per day, you can handle two of these children. And if you can handle three gallons of gas per day

00:55:00--> 00:55:08

that you could spare that at you would be willing to give that to save literally saved them from on unbelievable difficulties,

00:55:09--> 00:55:20

then you're helping three of these kids, he only went up to three. But I'm telling you, if anybody can sponsor a whole oil, well, that'd be great too.

00:55:21--> 00:55:23

You can do that. All right.

00:55:26--> 00:55:40

Mohammed Hassan is actually contacted us about this. And I had to check it out before I got involved, because I don't like to put our name of Goddess TB with something that is, you know, questionable.

00:55:41--> 00:55:52

And I was very impressed with the work. And also impressed with this, my wife and I have been sponsoring these kids for a while. And you will you see this thing right here.

00:55:54--> 00:56:34

It has a picture of the child on it. Well, after you get going with it, you will get a whole thing that comes in the mail from the child, you actually will have them write to you, if they're old enough to write, they might be writing in Arabic, especially the ones that are in Turkey. So if you know Arabic, you're okay, if you don't, you have to get somebody to help you translate it. And also to be able to write back to him, this makes a huge difference in their life. They're waiting all what like two, three months to get this letter from you. And when they get it, they go absolutely crazy. They can't they their feet won't touch the ground, they're so excited.

00:56:36--> 00:56:53

And you bring that kind of happiness in, they're not just by the money, because they don't even know about the money. They don't think about that. They know that somebody cares about them. If you were in that condition yourself, feeling it, you would know exactly what I'm saying.

00:56:54--> 00:57:19

And then we'll go back to what I told you about the wealth of this world and what is it really worth. So don't let this chance get by you. Now, he's still walking around here. So if you would like to do something, maybe you just want to do some one time. He's got a box there, you can put something in and as he passes by, you need to go slower, and you need to look in their faces and go like this.

00:57:20--> 00:57:22

Like that. Come on.

00:57:23--> 00:57:24

Yet with the program.

00:57:26--> 00:57:30

Anybody else want to do something tonight? Just put your hand up, he can pass by over there and you can do it.

00:57:32--> 00:57:34

Mashallah. All right.

00:57:36--> 00:57:36

Now,

00:57:38--> 00:57:41

how many of you have a car? Anybody has a car?

00:57:42--> 00:57:45

You have a car? Does it have bumpers?

00:57:47--> 00:57:51

Some countries don't allow bumper stickers. Did you know that?

00:57:53--> 00:58:00

I was shocked. Because I just from Texas. That's how we hold our bumper on actually is with bumper stickers.

00:58:03--> 00:58:12

We have this one. For goddess TV. It says worship the Creator, not the creation.

00:58:13--> 00:58:20

worship the Creator, not the creation. Simple as that. That sums up the whole talk that I was given tonight.

00:58:21--> 00:58:38

So much. So there was a brother that he has. I think it's a Lamborghini, one of these kinds of cars. Anyway, he put this in the back window of the car because he wanted to wait till it got washed to put it on the car.

00:58:39--> 00:58:47

And the man passed by and he saw this worship the Creator, not the creation, he started asking him questions. He said Is this what is this mean?

00:58:49--> 00:59:13

So he started talking to him about Islam what it means Islam is the surrender to God on His terms. That's what it means. Said really? Next thing you know, they're calling me and I go up there it was in New York, upstate New York. Within 20 minutes, a man accepted Islam. And guess what, the next day send a text message. He said, This is the best day of my life.

00:59:15--> 00:59:44

And it all came from a piece of paper. Many people see these. Many, many people see these, and maybe you don't know it. And they don't even remember but they start worshipping God without partners. Not praying to Mohammed not praying to Jesus praying to the God that they prayed to. And that Islam. As soon as somebody is praying directly to God, just like the prophets told them to do.

00:59:46--> 00:59:47

They're hooked up

00:59:48--> 00:59:51

and it's up to Allah to guide them. Don't worry about that.

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

They don't have to go to our websites. They don't have to read any certain book. They don't even have to read the Quran.

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

They don't.

01:00:02--> 01:00:06

But they do have to do one thing, all of us have to do the one thing.

01:00:08--> 01:00:50

We have to be sincere with our Creator. If we're not all the reading, all the thinking, all the actions, everything is worthless. So I just want to mention that and we have some of these out there. And you don't have to buy them. I don't sell anything you donate whatever you want to do to help us do more. And we use 100% of this, whatever's donated for our efforts. That's as good as you can get. Hamdulillah. All right, so we took a question last night, but the question the answer to it took so long, that we didn't have time for any more questions. So

01:00:51--> 01:01:05

if anybody would like to ask a question tonight, sisters, if you would like to ask a question, you can write it down and send it up. And we'll try to our best to do that. If you can write it down, send it up.

01:01:06--> 01:01:16

Or Mohamed, you're back there, you can if they tell you something, if any ladies have a question, if you can get that relay it up to me.

01:01:24--> 01:01:25

No questions.

01:01:28--> 01:01:31

I was hoping nobody would have a question then I get away for

01:01:38--> 01:01:47

the last, you know, 1015 years or so how would you say the approach that you take when giving Dawa has not changed at all? If so, can you explain how that's changed?

01:01:49--> 01:02:10

That's a good question. And one that I can't sneak around either. He's asking a question about Dawa. That's what we do. I gave up my business. My wife and I had a business in a plastics company. We gave it up because we has so much effort for this. Now it takes time.

01:02:11--> 01:02:22

And hamdulillah it was the best decision I ever made in my life. But now I'm responsible for everything, like 10 times more.

01:02:23--> 01:02:31

When you ask a question about when we started the Dawa? Is it changed any? There are certain things obviously that won't change?

01:02:33--> 01:02:37

Like for instance, it's still mandatory to try to give it

01:02:38--> 01:02:53

it's the in the Salah tonight the Imam Muhammad he read the ayah. In the Quran, he said, The translation of it, who is better? Who is better

01:02:55--> 01:02:57

than the one who is calling to Allah?

01:03:00--> 01:03:10

And it's a rhetorical question, Was anybody calling to Allah calling to God to worship God along with our partners? That's that's what it's all about.

01:03:13--> 01:03:14

Has it changed?

01:03:16--> 01:03:21

I don't think that Dow has ever changed. I think since the time of Adam,

01:03:22--> 01:03:22

Noah,

01:03:24--> 01:03:30

Moses, all of them they were calling their people do the same thing.

01:03:31--> 01:03:41

However, I think I've changed a lot in the way I call. I started out watching these videos of Ahmed Deedat Rahim Allah

01:03:43--> 01:03:44

and reading

01:03:46--> 01:03:50

a translation of the Quran that had a lot of commentary in it.

01:03:51--> 01:04:00

At that time, I didn't really know anything other than that about Islam. That in what I was learning from individuals at the masjid

01:04:04--> 01:04:19

but experience to see the people who come to Islam and then asking them, what was it? You know, what was it that motivated you? Why did you do it? What was what was the thing that you saw that that attracted you?

01:04:23--> 01:04:32

And after listening to some of the responses, I realized, this is not a contest.

01:04:34--> 01:04:38

It's not salesmanship, you're not trying to sell used furniture.

01:04:39--> 01:04:51

You're not selling a piece of property. You're not selling an investment. The reality is that you're just calling people to Allah. That's the reality.

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

There are two factors. One, they go to Allah the other they go to shaitan right. Is that

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

Basically it used to go to Paradise and be with Allah, or go to hellfire and be with the devil. That's simple as that.

01:05:10--> 01:05:16

So why would I want to debate somebody about anything that they believe?

01:05:17--> 01:05:40

Because as soon as you started debate, you automatically put them in one corner and you're in another corner. And you drew a line like kids doing the play yard, you know, I draw a line, you step over that line, and I'm gonna hit you. And I step over the line, blah, blah, blah. That's the line there. And I'm gonna say my side and you say your side nice. Baba, Baba.

01:05:43--> 01:05:46

Maybe somebody will come to Islam from that?

01:05:48--> 01:05:49

Maybe not.

01:05:50--> 01:05:58

But how about this? When I first met the Muslim that helped me, I was trying to convert him to be a Christian.

01:06:00--> 01:06:04

And I was trying to play that game, you know? salesmanship.

01:06:07--> 01:06:14

But the first thing that wound up we were sitting there together in a shop having tea.

01:06:16--> 01:06:19

Not across from each other. He was sitting next to me.

01:06:20--> 01:06:21

We're having tea.

01:06:23--> 01:06:27

How do you like your tea, little sugar, lemon, something like that?

01:06:28--> 01:06:30

Not a debate, a friendship.

01:06:32--> 01:06:42

At least companionship, somebody with you. And we're on the same side already. I want the guy to go to paradise. Right?

01:06:43--> 01:06:45

I really care about the person.

01:06:46--> 01:06:48

So if I'm gonna do this,

01:06:49--> 01:06:54

and I really believe in God, Allah is the one who's gonna guide him not me. Is that true?

01:06:58--> 01:07:02

So what if I just give somebody a bumper sticker? And I never saw him again?

01:07:04--> 01:07:05

What about did that?

01:07:07--> 01:07:14

If that's all I did, and they came to Islam, would Allah know that? Would he record that?

01:07:21--> 01:07:23

Is the sun too bright for you?

01:07:26--> 01:07:27

The sunglasses

01:07:34--> 01:07:36

Very good. Thank you.

01:07:40--> 01:07:43

Yeah, you can leave that here if you want to

01:07:48--> 01:07:55

Masha Allah. Alright. Anyway, the idea of the Dawa, for me,

01:07:56--> 01:08:01

is not to try to put somebody away from Islam,

01:08:03--> 01:08:10

that just let them understand what Islam really is. And how can you do that? How could anybody do that?

01:08:12--> 01:08:16

If you're trying to make it like a competition, it's not a sport.

01:08:18--> 01:08:19

That makes sense.

01:08:20--> 01:08:25

So any opportunity I get to sit and talk with somebody, and here's the key.

01:08:27--> 01:08:29

Try not to say everything you know.

01:08:33--> 01:08:55

Listen to them. Sometime you'll hear something from the person and realize they're a lot closer than you thought they were. Or they got some ideas that are in line with Islam already. They are human after all, they came from the same God so they probably do have a lot of stuff already in line. Just need to realign some things.

01:08:58--> 01:09:02

Don't think that the Christians are far away from Islam. They're not.

01:09:03--> 01:09:04

They are not.

01:09:05--> 01:09:14

In fact, the Prophet says salaam Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he said it the closest to you meaning the Muslims or the Christians.

01:09:16--> 01:09:19

But look what Allah said about that subject in the Quran.

01:09:21--> 01:09:28

In the Quran, there's an idea that a lot of people know the first half of they don't know the second half.

01:09:31--> 01:09:49

When I was a Christian, I did not like somebody to read half of a verse, then half of a verse from somewhere else and another verse from somewhere else. And then try to tell me God said this, God said that, yeah, if you put it together like that, if you want to pick and choose the words, just say whatever you want to say.

01:09:50--> 01:09:58

Usually Muslims will recite the whole verse, but I don't know why. This verse winds up being only half

01:09:59--> 01:09:59

and it's the

01:10:00--> 01:10:03

A verse that all the people in doubt always use.

01:10:05--> 01:10:18

I was blaming shut down regime. Clinton Jairo. Mateen a great gentleman us. Top Morona Bill mon roof. What Tana how not anil munkar wha

01:10:22--> 01:10:23

to me noon Avila.

01:10:25--> 01:10:28

How many of you know the verse you've heard it before? At least you've heard it.

01:10:30--> 01:10:37

That's only half the verse. The translation said you're the best. You are the best

01:10:38--> 01:10:54

raised up for all of mankind. Because you call to my roof you forbid or moon car what to me known a biller and you believe in Allah. And I was questioning this, this part of the birth

01:10:55--> 01:11:08

because everywhere else in the Quran, you always find AMI know what AMI Lu saleha you always find that the belief in God is first.

01:11:10--> 01:11:13

Then the actions of that Mamilla.

01:11:16--> 01:11:25

But in this verse, it said, and you believe in Allah and the scholars, they said, How are you translating Maru for moon car?

01:11:26--> 01:11:42

I said, Well, you're calling to good and forbidding evil. They said no, that's not right. That is generally speaking, but in this case, it's the ultimate calling to good what's the ultimate call to the ultimate good

01:11:44--> 01:11:48

lie Allah Allah Allah you're calling to lie Allah Allah Allah you're calling to Allah.

01:11:50--> 01:11:57

And you're forbidding what takes people away from Allah and you believe in Allah and if you didn't do that, how could you say you believe in Allah

01:11:59--> 01:12:00

Ah,

01:12:01--> 01:12:11

now it makes sense what's the rest of it will allow Amana And will he can be like kind of high roller who men whom have moved me know not what I thought of far see cone.

01:12:14--> 01:12:15

The people of the book

01:12:17--> 01:12:19

The People of the Book,

01:12:20--> 01:12:27

if the people of the book the Bible, the Jews and the Christians believed correctly, it's better for them.

01:12:29--> 01:12:29

Men home

01:12:31--> 01:12:35

from them how we knew our true believers.

01:12:37--> 01:12:45

From them are true believers. Well, ACTA Romo Fossey con, but most of them are fasik Fisk

01:12:46--> 01:12:57

corruptive disobedient. I showed a translation of that to a pastor one time talk to him about it. He said you're talking about my congregation aren't you?

01:12:58--> 01:13:03

He really thought that I'm talking like your Yeah, I know they're like that.

01:13:06--> 01:13:08

I said this in the Quran said what?

01:13:11--> 01:13:12

Yeah.

01:13:13--> 01:13:21

So that that is why I like to focus on finding what we have in common.

01:13:22--> 01:13:23

How we can get together

01:13:25--> 01:13:27

Allah says in the Quran

01:13:31--> 01:13:36

I don't know why we keep getting this feedback here. Maybe if I put it over here I don't know

01:13:43--> 01:13:44

Oh, okay

01:13:48--> 01:13:50

this shuts off like this.

01:13:53--> 01:13:54

Yeah, it's off now.

01:13:55--> 01:13:57

Yeah, is this better?

01:13:58--> 01:14:00

Yeah, man, I was hurt my ears.

01:14:03--> 01:14:06

In the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala. He says in we hear this.

01:14:08--> 01:14:12

About every Friday, Juma will hear this

01:14:13--> 01:14:15

Ebola image mentioned toner Azim

01:14:16--> 01:14:27

Yeah, you'll Adina ave a tequila haka, Ducati. You will Atomo tuna Eloa. anti Muslim. Everybody knows that one, right? Yeah. Oh you who believe.

01:14:28--> 01:14:35

Give Allah His Huck his rights. Bye. By what? By having Taqwa what is taqwa?

01:14:36--> 01:14:39

Anybody know what's Taqwa? in English.

01:14:40--> 01:14:59

It means to shield a partition, to put yourself behind a partition against the laws Gotham, out of fear of what you know is going to happen on the Day of Judgment. That's the whole long story behind it. But they will say God fearing or pious

01:15:00--> 01:15:17

SNIS or something like that, but doesn't really get the meaning out. The word Taqwa is shield. You put something between you and something else. That's Taqwa. So that's Allah's, right. You do that.

01:15:18--> 01:15:19

And you'll be alright.

01:15:20--> 01:15:24

And then he said, don't die except as a Muslim.

01:15:26--> 01:15:30

One who is in surrender submission, obedience, sincerity,

01:15:32--> 01:15:37

peace, security, and safety with the law.

01:15:38--> 01:15:45

All of those words out of a slammer from Ceylon seen lamb meme, imagine, anyway.

01:15:47--> 01:15:55

But look what happens right after that Allah is actually setting it up for the next verse, and nobody ever reads it. Almost nobody.

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

What I tell him will be Hamdulillahi gymea will love to Farkle

01:16:04--> 01:16:11

now I'm doing I'm guilty of what I just said, I just wanted to give you a part of a verse, but it's enough to continue.

01:16:14--> 01:16:26

And all of you, Jeremy ah, hold on to the rope of Allah himolla Hold on to this rope of Allah together.

01:16:28--> 01:16:39

And then he said, Well, lot of particle what is phoric? What is Farik? Separate? Don't separate. Do Muslims separate themselves from each other?

01:16:42--> 01:16:43

We're not supposed to.

01:16:45--> 01:16:48

Are there different groups of so called Muslims in the world?

01:16:50--> 01:17:02

People call themselves Sunni Muslims. People call themselves Wahhabi Muslims. Shiite Muslims, Sufi Muslims. Yeah. Which one's best?

01:17:05--> 01:17:27

That's a trick question. You know that right? That's a big, big trick question. As soon as you say, well, the one that I'm in that * on waiting for you. He's waiting for you. What? What was the big mistake of shaitaan? Did he kill somebody? No. He's still something. No.

01:17:29--> 01:17:38

What was his big thing? He's gone to hell forever. What was it? Arrogance? Exactly, exactly.

01:17:40--> 01:17:43

Whoever has this Kipper.

01:17:44--> 01:18:10

That's, that's a big problem. And how many times have I been around Muslim groups? And they always tell me they're the best group. Join us. We're the, like Muslim Brotherhood, or the Hamas or the and I'm not saying anything wrong with them. But just the idea. Why do I have to join a group?

01:18:11--> 01:18:13

I joined Islam it not enough.

01:18:14--> 01:18:15

Is it?

01:18:16--> 01:18:17

According to one?

01:18:18--> 01:18:22

The name of Halloween? Anybody heard of Halloween?

01:18:24--> 01:18:24

Halloween?

01:18:29--> 01:18:32

Halloween? Yeah, I call them Halloween.

01:18:35--> 01:18:40

Because the examples that I met are really way out there.

01:18:41--> 01:18:43

I met one he said they don't have to pray.

01:18:45--> 01:18:47

He told me that. We don't have to pray.

01:18:49--> 01:19:00

And he also told me you're not a real Muslim. I said really? What did I do wrong? He said you have to be born a Muslim and your father has to call the Adan in one year in the UK common the other year.

01:19:04--> 01:19:05

Really?

01:19:06--> 01:19:09

He called me on the phone. He was shouting at me one time and then he hung up

01:19:14--> 01:19:19

he is also waving a gun inside the masjid and they picked him up for that but yeah,

01:19:20--> 01:19:22

so yeah, Halloween.

01:19:23--> 01:19:40

So there are a lot of groups out there but Allah told the believers leave of that. Just stay with the Muslims. Can I call myself a Muslim? Yeah, Allah call this Muslims will lat tamo tuna, elewana muesli Moon

01:19:42--> 01:19:45

Allah calls us Muslims in the Quran.

01:19:46--> 01:19:49

And he even said that.

01:19:50--> 01:19:51

Wow.

01:19:52--> 01:19:56

And he told us not to divide up into groups. He said it

01:19:59--> 01:19:59

so what group

01:20:00--> 01:20:05

Do you want to be on Hernan view? Your Shafi? I don't like you. What is that?

01:20:08--> 01:20:12

I met a convert one time he had only been in Islam six weeks.

01:20:13--> 01:20:18

And I always old timer. I've been in Islam a whole year. Anyway.

01:20:20--> 01:20:30

When I walked in the door, I saw the guy say, Hey, what's up and he said, So Michael, why don't you come Salaam? He said, No, you have to give it to me more. I said, Okay, why don't come some AMRAAM delivered guarantee.

01:20:32--> 01:20:37

Six weeks he did learn a lot. He said, What must have Are you?

01:20:40--> 01:20:41

I said, Well,

01:20:43--> 01:20:49

I know what's a myth? I said, actually, the metabo the Rasul Allah, Allah, Allah alayhi wa sallam.

01:20:50--> 01:21:02

He said, No, that's not good enough. I said, Whoa, really? He said, No, you have to choose one. There are four. Actually, there's a lot more than four. But anyway, there's four. You got to choose one

01:21:04--> 01:21:11

said really? Yeah. Hanafi Maliki Shafi handily choose one

01:21:16--> 01:21:16

can think about it?

01:21:19--> 01:21:20

What is that?

01:21:24--> 01:21:31

Actually, what did the Imams Imam Abu Hanifa Imam

01:21:33--> 01:21:41

Malik, Imam, Mohammed, Ebony Greece. Who is the Imam Mohammed ibn Idris? Anybody know?

01:21:42--> 01:21:44

Imam Shafi? Yeah, that's his real name.

01:21:45--> 01:21:51

Yeah. And if you don't even know his name, how you say you fallen this guy.

01:21:52--> 01:21:54

And you don't know anything? He said. Really?

01:21:58--> 01:21:58

It was

01:22:04--> 01:22:05

them not mistaken.

01:22:06--> 01:22:30

Nasr Dean al Albani Rahim Allah is yeah, that's where I got it from. He gave us quotes from each one of these great Imams. And they're so similar, that you could just put it all together. Basically, they're saying if you find anything in Quran and Sunnah, that is contrary to what I said, take what I said and throw it away.

01:22:31--> 01:22:32

Basically.

01:22:35--> 01:22:48

I make mistakes. Some days I'm right. Some days I'm wrong. But that one and that was the my Malik is pointing over at the grave of the Prophet SAW Islam. He said he didn't make any mistakes.

01:22:49--> 01:22:52

So whatever he said, You take that.

01:22:56--> 01:23:04

So I hope and pray that we will all stay on this. Dean, the Dean of real Islam, any of us have a question? Say no.

01:23:06--> 01:23:08

I told you say no.

01:23:09--> 01:23:13

By the way, if you want to ask me a question, be sure I know the answer. It makes me look smart.

01:23:20--> 01:23:29

The Bible are having to use these and they are really the priests are. Are those not aware of like

01:23:31--> 01:23:36

their egos prevent them from saying that? Some of them are?

01:23:42--> 01:23:58

Our brothers asking the question about some people. They have a lot of intellect. They have a lot of knowledge. But at the same time, how much do they really know is are they not aware of what is Islam? Or what is the Quran?

01:24:01--> 01:24:23

Yeah, they have a PhD in the Bible. But do they know? And that the question is so general, that I have to say a low on them. Because I don't know all of these people. And then individual even if I know one individual, I would still have to assume some things about him.

01:24:24--> 01:24:25

For instance.

01:24:27--> 01:24:34

There's one that comes on television, and he a lot of people watch him and Muslims like to watch him to

01:24:35--> 01:24:37

Houston, Texas.

01:24:38--> 01:24:40

His name is Joel Osteen.

01:24:41--> 01:24:48

Anybody ever heard of Joel Osteen? Yeah. Do you know why you like to watch him?

01:24:49--> 01:24:49

Huh?

01:24:52--> 01:25:00

Because you keep waiting for him to say something that's going to really put him over and but at the end

01:25:00--> 01:25:05

have every one of those he makes sure to say in the name of Jesus. Do you know he does that?

01:25:07--> 01:25:10

Because he didn't want to lose his Christian followers.

01:25:11--> 01:25:20

They have taken him to task in the past because he didn't focus enough on who Jesus is.

01:25:22--> 01:25:24

So I don't know what he knows.

01:25:25--> 01:25:35

I do know that, from the one who was with him, we gave shot to one of his close people.

01:25:37--> 01:25:52

A bishop from the Christian church, accepted Islam with us named Micah. And he traveled with us for a while. And he shared with me about Joel Osteen and about his dad and about things that they do. Now.

01:25:53--> 01:26:40

Joel Osteen was a cameraman for his father when his father was on Christian TV. And he knows a lot about framing shots. Now, we're just using this little simple operation here. But when you have cameraman that have the earpiece in there, have a director and the directors telling each one of the cameraman, how to go in, get close, pull back, get a fuzzy shot, now get a clear shot, all of the things that they're telling him to do, this is all scripted, because they know exactly what he's gonna say where he's gonna go. And he gives signals to them, by by walking over to this spot, they have marks on the stage. And he when he stand here, you're supposed to have the camera like this.

01:26:40--> 01:26:48

And when he walks over here, and turns this way, that camera and so on, all of that is staged, all of that is staged

01:26:49--> 01:26:54

here, and it really gets his point across, you can't help but watch his stuff.

01:26:55--> 01:27:02

If you like good old boys, he's a good old boy. And he's telling about stories that happened in his life.

01:27:05--> 01:27:09

So does he know? I don't know.

01:27:10--> 01:27:14

Is he aware of what this is about? I'm not sure.

01:27:16--> 01:27:18

And there are others like that as well.

01:27:19--> 01:27:33

There are some that have really thought that they were going to convert me back to Christianity. And then we sit together and talk for a little while. And then they just walk away or they accept Islam.

01:27:35--> 01:27:37

But they know they don't want to get into debate.

01:27:40--> 01:27:49

What is there to debate really with a Christian anyway? Why? Why would you want to? Why would you want to take somebody out of their religion

01:27:52--> 01:27:56

and expose them to chance they become atheists?

01:27:57--> 01:28:05

Because that's what you're doing. Instead, let's help them get closer to Islam. And if you can't do that, leave them alone.

01:28:06--> 01:28:07

Does that make sense? or No?

01:28:09--> 01:28:20

Either help them or get away from them. But don't expose them to some of the knowledge that you might have that couldn't leave them without any hope.

01:28:21--> 01:28:28

Because if you expose the fact that the Bible really is impossible to be from Allah,

01:28:30--> 01:28:31

because they don't have it.

01:28:32--> 01:28:52

They don't even know exactly where any of it is anymore. Not a scrap those smallest, the largest piece is a very small little piece that I saw in Manchester, England in a museum, and we took pictures of it and everything.

01:28:53--> 01:28:59

But it's two centuries after ISA to send 200 years later.

01:29:02--> 01:29:05

That's when it was written 200 years later.

01:29:07--> 01:29:10

That's as close as you can get.

01:29:11--> 01:29:26

Now they have manuscripts that refer to other manuscripts that are gone. But the bottom line they've got zero, that they can actually point to and say this is this or this is that

01:29:27--> 01:29:53

the Hebrew of the Old Testament is very clearly gone. Very clearly gone. That's why when they discovered that dag Hammadi scrolls in what he Qumran they call them the Dead Sea Scrolls, but that was at Qumran where they anyway those scrolls that they found. This is why

01:29:55--> 01:29:57

the Catholic church got involved

01:29:59--> 01:29:59

and when
