Channel: Yusuf Estes
Entertaining talk, tune in to this lecture conveying the underlying principle that every Muslim should be conscious of driving.
Mashallah. It's good to be back with all of you again how many of you were here the last time I was here remember that? Very good time.
thing is taller Nyan.
It's great to be here.
I wonder if we could call this program tonight? Wake up
question in the morning when you know what I'm talking about in the morning.
And your dad comes in or wife or you know.
Oh, yeah, just one more minute.
That's all I just need one more. Just 60 who? Yeah,
I can't man, I got to just need one more. The private satellites told us about this should Tonya tell you go back to sleep, man. You know, you go back to sleep. It's okay. Close your eyes. This, you know, because from the time of the dawn of budget in the morning, until the time of the comma, you might have 20 minutes. 30 minutes. Take it easy, man. Don't be an extremist.
So let's like Take it easy. So you just like let me just in all Heck, I won't go back to sleep. I'm just gonna like stretch a little bit and lay on the other side for a second. You know, just kind of cool.
Oh, that Yeah. Maybe you got the alarm going off. You'd never do that you get the alarm. You can't find the thing. You're trying to shut it off. I get up I just quit. You know, I don't want to wake up. And then Professor salami told us that if you go back to sleep, because the shutdown, he's gonna keep going, come on, go back to sleep. Go back. Come, go. He becomes your best friend. You know, shutdown will be your best friend. In this instance. gorgeously. Take it easy. And when you do, then he urinates in your ear.
Yeah, is that is what it says there provinces. We can get you to go back to sleep, he will urinate in your ear.
Notice pee pee in your ear. Yeah.
Whatever All I know is wake up. Because I don't want that to happen to me. It could be worse. There are other things we need to wake up about something even more serious.
And that subject is why I came all the way halfway around the world. And then across the equator and all the way over here to you.
Because we have programs that well I'm here to help those people who don't know about Islam to find out the truth, the real truth. Now, what's happened to the Muslims around the world in the last 10 years? I do believe if somebody said it was a wake up call, I'll agree, would you agree? I mean, a lot of us were sound asleep, then all of a sudden, we found ourselves like whoa.
Alright, so now it's time for us to wake up. But it's time for us now to go out and take another one more step. And that step is to go out of the masjid. And go next door to our non Muslim friends, non Muslim neighbors, the non Muslim people that we're doing business with, and just tell them, I want to give you an invitation. I just want to give you an invitation.
Don't try to convert people to Islam. Nobody is supposed to do that anyway. Really. It's a law who guides people or doesn't guide them in that true?
Yeah. So I don't need to convert anybody. I don't need to dialogue with them and give them all this stuff about, you know, your Bible, my Koran, and Prophet Jesus is.
If I do this, if I do all of this stuff, first of all, you're going to bore them or you're going to make them angry, or both.
But they're not going to accept what you said anyhow.
But if you give them an invitation, I like invitations, you know, give me an invitation to come over and have some cup of Chino, for instance, or candy, or a cup of tea, anything. An invitation is something nice somebody's giving you something given the invitation to come and join us.
program. Because if you do that,
if you do that, then it falls on us to present them properly, so that they can wake up before it's too late for them.
might ask a question now I want you to tell me the truth.
You do Salah Yeah, you do hamdulillah? Why?
Who do you do the Salah for?
Who benefits? A lot of benefit from it? Who benefits? You do? So you do you celebrate yourself? That's why you do it. Can you do Salah for me? know,
if I die, you can do Salah army, but
I don't want to die yet. But for sure, for sure. I'm doing myself out every day for my own benefit. Or how many times we talk about if you do it in the machine, for instance, you get 25 to 27 times reward. First thing would be taken into account on the Day of Judgment is the seller. Whoever leaves the salon is not from us. We're always talking about how does it affect me so I do myself? For me. That's why I do it.
You fast? Yeah. For who?
Oh, for yourself.
You really can't do that for somebody else. In fact, if you're fast and you're even supposed to go Hey, by the way
you heard about that when did you know I read this it what and when I first became Muslim, I want to learn how to do down and I got a double book, big book all about everything you can imagine about Dell. And what I was reading it had some new stories in there and it was talking about a couple of old timers sitting in the masjid in the back of the machine right and youngster, you know, Shabaab he came into the masjid. And he goes up he's gonna do Thai at the masjid. You know, the tuber if all you're doing you enter the masjid. So he came in very strong.
And the old timers are like Marshall. He stands so straight. And then he does the real cool. Martial Law. Look how straight is his back martial law. He makes such a martial law. He's sitting you know, at the end, and the gel says
law says no more than more often to law. And I'm fasting do
is a bad joke? anyway. So when we're fasting is for ourselves.
When I give Zika somebody will benefit.
You know, cuz you give it to the poor? But who really is the one getting benefit me? And when I do hedge? Who am I doing it for? myself? I'm doing it for myself for myself. Yeah. And it's good day judgment. You don't
ask me about this. About the first thing in the second.
I did all that for myself.
But what about your neighbor?
Is not Muslim? Oh, no, he's a gaffer.
What about the guy over here at the gas station? The one over here at the cafe, the one that's over here, when you were down at that place of business doing for carpets and things like that? What about those people? But their Kaffir?
Did you tell him about Islam?
I think that's why you're supposed to tell them? Isn't it?
I mean, after all, if you came in here and told us you want to be a Muslim, I think we get a consensus real quick.
Even if they're in some weird group, they'll still go Yeah, do that. Because that's why we're here. But what about the one who's not Muslim?
What about the one who's not had the chance yet?
Now you could say well, he died is from law. guidances from Milan. Yeah, it is. That's true.
But what for law uses you to give the guidance to somebody
And what if you refuse to deliver the message?
It would still be the cutter of a law that the guy doesn't get to go to agenda.
But now you became involved.
As soon as you met the person as soon as you talk to him as soon as you began to do any business with him. As soon as you had
Any kind of relationship with that other human being? You're involved.
You're on the hook.
You speak to him? Yeah. Would you tell him? I said
How's it going?
Okay, what else you say? Oh, I said,
how you doing?
Who won the game last night?
Is there anything else?
Oh, yes. Yeah. Good I made.
I like that is gonna be made funny.
Did you tell them about La ilaha illAllah
must have slipped my mind.
It happened to me.
Some many years ago when I was still trying to get a handle on what's Islam and what I'm supposed to do and not do
that somebody came to me.
And they were telling us about how long is our pants? Or how long is our garment that we had. And you have to get it up x the number of inches and they're gonna have a tape measure and Nick and see okay, that's
a right there. And you could fold it up and just be just right, you know, to go in the machine. Of course, when you went back to this court, just roll it back down again. But when they were doing that, I asked them
how, how do I know about this thing? They said, Oh, it's brother's a headache. And I have to give you, missy. Ha. Have you heard this before? Let's see her is my job, brother. I have to give you the car.
How does that work? They said yeah, Brother, you have to tell you have to tell you have to give them the see huh? How What? Where does this come from? Yeah, actually, who ever sees anything, which is a moon car, he has to stop it by his hand.
And we can do that as the speaker he gets hit with it. Listen his tongue. And if he can do that,
then he has to hate it with his heart.
And this is the weakest level of faith. And I'm thinking this guy has to hate my pants. The length of my pants. He hates my Why?
The Hadith that he's talking about? Actually, that both of these are these talking about a boat out of context. The first one you stole but the link, the link didn't say pants and Arabic bondone didn't say that.
We didn't say that.
You know what he said?
you know what? Caesar?
No, it's bizarre, but you can go tell everybody about rolling it up.
Is our is you know what, by the way, I don't know if you know this. The people or the time of the Prophet Muhammad SAW Islam. They didn't wear these. They didn't wear this. This. This. In fact, I don't have anything on at all that they want. Except after is the only thing I have on the day war.
Oh, and they didn't have this one either.
What they had was really simple clothes.
They had head coverings. Yeah. And they had body coverings. Yeah. But how many of you made Hodge or O'Meara hygroma?
Only How many of you want to make Hodge Sonoma? Okay, I'm like no, all right now a lot. Let them have a main
wisdom there. Let's go.
Yeah, I love it. I want to do it again. But what you were in hygiene O'Meara is similar to what they had. This is what they were wearing. Wrap it around, these are wraps you know, not like the sandwich wrap, you know, wrapping around your body. That's what they were wearing. And that's what they were saying when he said who is dragging his izhar is it's dragging in the fire in the Gnar.
Read the rest of the Hadeeth abubaker came to me and he said I can't keep it up. You know, because if you ever worn one of those, you know how it works. It just friction is pretty much it. It's going to go down if you don't have now I got plenty of friction.
That's what that's for. So I can keep doing hodgen homerun with no
friction maybe. So, but
in the end even, they didn't have friction. They had nothing because they were hungry. They were starving. They remember the one about when they put the rock on. Somebody had a rock in his stomach. He said, Look, I have a recumbent story prompts us and said, I got to remember.
And so our burger is is saying he's scared because he heard the brucellosis and said that he understand when we say something, this is not something to play with is not a joke. And dragon in the fire joy. He said, it's because you don't have any stomach. So he said, He's not talking about you.
It's talking about the one who does it out of kibber.
Who does it out of Kibera? It's not about your pants getting down on your ankles. It's about the one who does it recover. Because that's something in case you didn't know how that works. That's not a new story. That story is in the Bible.
The same story about the Pharisees who used to drag their izhar on the ground out of Guibert, let me show you what it looks like. It's like
now Do you get it?
whoever is doing this, there's another Hadith that will help you understand and compare. That was in one of the battles
Gaza, in one of the battles when the Muslims had won, there was a big victory for the Muslims. And once he got up out of the ditch, and he was like, yeah, yeah, yeah. Like that's why, you know, striding and resources, Sam said, this is the walk that a lot hates, except on occasions like this.
Now, do you get it?
kibber is a form of shirk. And when people have that arrogance, kibber is arrogance, not pride. And that's what the problem is that someone was showing. He's showing us the difference between what is pride, normal pride, I'm proud of this garment. By the way, a relative gave this to me, and I was real happy to have it. So this is pride.
Not to be confused with arrogance. arrogance is when you go, Hey, I got one and you don't
have Okay, that's that's arrogance, when you're flouting it, like, Hey,
you know, this is clear. Doesn't it make sense?
Can you imagine that? What what mentality would it be? I mean, we would be going toward the direction to Christianity, you know, some of the stuff that they say, and you look at and you go, man, what are you talking about?
When you say that, just because of the length of the garment alone, a guy goes to hell.
What if he didn't even know it? still has to go to hell.
I've heard Christians say that if a baby died, it went to hell. Why? Well, the parents were Hindus, or the baby goes to hell.
Islam said all babies go to Paradise. Forget about it. They're already in the vitriol of Islam. Drew
why you say something like that. So, just in the same way, we can come along now and try to redefine things just to play a game of, Hey, I know something you don't know. And you better come over here and measure up your pants when you walk through the door and we're going to see just exactly how high they are. Okay, that'll work. You can go do some hot.
Now, you maybe you don't have that problem here in Australia. But I've seen that in our country really bad.
And not it doesn't stop there. They'll come out and say, Well, how long is this beard because there's, you know, one of the ladies is talking about Abdullah bin Omar, who after Hajj or Umrah that you know people you cut your hair or shave your hair. And he took his beard and cut the excess off of that. So somebody might come up to you and say, okay, your beard is too short. Because you can't grab it, or it's too long. Because what comes out after and you're like, What?
What is this? Where did you get all this stuff from? And then somebody could come along and say
was that your pocket was Miss wack
How long is it?
How big around is it?
It's too fast.
It's too short.
Your beard is too short. Your pants are too long your mistakes too fat and you're going What is this? Sounds like rap music coming up here. I'm sorry, but but when it turns into that, this is not this isn't feel good. It really doesn't.
It seems like we're looking at the outside only and we're forgetting about the essence behind what we're talking about.
Unhappy that brother came for salon. It came for salon to make dawn, maybe he was gonna make dope for me.
Now he's gonna make it against me.
Because I picked on him, you know? Wouldn't it be better, you know, let's go talk to some real shoe. Not somebody that just spent half a year in Medina and got kicked out. Somebody that really knows what they're talking about. And ask them.
Now in the 17 years I've been Muslim, I doubt Ireland enough to even qualify for being a good diet. The only reason they let me come and do it is because I'm a white guy from America.
But still, I love Islam. I love the law. And I love this Deen. And I wish more people knew about it. Okay, there's my qualification. That's it.
But in the time, in the time that I've been visiting other countries, what I have seen is that the real scholars of Islam are very, very easy and very tolerant. Especially when people are new to Islam to help them to get adjusted to come into Islam. easy step by step by step to teach them.
Teach them salon, teach them about fasting and Zika. So that they don't wind up going bonkers and run away.
Because after the Shahada, and we saw so many 1000s do shadow on the lam, very happy about that. But then what happens when I leave, and the first thing a guy walks in the door, and it's not a joke.
This is serious wake up call. When you when somebody just made Shahada, and he's gonna come back now to the machine. It's the first time to come back. And he's scared. Remember that? You know how you look to them? You didn't know do you don't have a clue?
Because they're not used to seeing people with beards. not used to seeing people from other ethnicities are not used to hearing people talk with the accents that we have. I'm including me now because I'm a Texan over here, which is segments in from outer space. But so when I'm talking to them, and you're talking to them, they're still looking at us. Like
they don't know. They're not sure. But they made Shahada and it came back.
So when they come to the door, we got the Bismillah police guarding him. Right. You know, I'm talking about the guy with the clipboard. You know, I'm talking about socialism. Somebody come in. Who's this guy?
We don't know him. He's never been here before. I don't know. Maybe he's a spy. Maybe works for the FBI. Oh, my God.
Could be I got news for you the real spies. You can't tell them.
This is true. But anyway, so this guy is coming in and he doesn't know what to do with his shoes. He didn't order too
many steps in never never. He's nature hat if you don't know that yet. He comes walking in. And he remembers that somebody was telling him to go in and he's learned how to do some saliva anyway, he wants to try to do the test democracy. He walks in. Check out his pants. Oh man are too long.
There we go. Where's the beard? too short? It's only like three days growth we made shot it three days ago.
Make sense? And he walks in now he's gonna try to do Let me think. Okay, that's the quibbler
You don't even have to say it. He read it out of a book The quit blow. And he's like,
put his hands stop for a law.
And is it I'm not joking. Even if he doesn't know it's supposed to be like off the Qibla a little bit. Well, you normally you go and put somebody on and Kimberly's turn the wrong way. Say go up to me go
snap him around.
It was scarem.
And I remember one we gave him Shahada in the same night he left Islam, same night. He did Shahada. And we're standing for the salon. They told him do the salon with us. And I said, because he was bigger than me, said, Let's let him sit in the chair. No, I should stand up. He's healthy. Good. Okay. And guess what happened? He had never ever made salad before. He doesn't know how to balance himself. He has no clue you can I nodded. But even he bent over, he rolled.
When he got up, what was it? That was it? Just over something like this. He was embarrassed. So how would it be? How would it be? Would you would feel if you didn't have any clue about this? You went someplace you don't know the people. And then they treat you like this.
And you wonder why these people don't stay around.
And if you think it's bad for the brothers, it's 10 times worse for the sisters.
Because there's so much jealousy amongst the sisters. They're scared to death. Oh, man, she's young. Or she's, you know, a white skinned lady. Oh, my husband might not and take another wife right away.
So I told you about 100 the other deed when it says that when you see a moon car, what is what did you you're supposed to do? You'll have to stop it. But what? Your hand? Yeah.
And if you can't
stop your tongue, and you can't
aim your heart.
I did go and I asked real scholars about the subject. They said First of all, do you know what the word munkar means? I said something bad. They said you have to know it in the context just like you have to know it in the Quran in context. Let me give you the example from the Quran and then maybe it'll help you to know what I'm talking about our own during the shutdown regime content hydromechanical rejecting the NASA maroondah Bill maroof what an onion one car but took me noon Bella, this is the only verse you're gonna find in the Quran all the way from Surah Baqarah. All the way back to Surah Al us where this word in this statement is coming ahead of the belief of a law.
Did you understand what I just said?
Yeah, I want you to I want you to go back and look everywhere else in the Quran that says I'm a new one musalla hottie only new means to believe in the law.
I'm sorry, what is the righteous deeds? Always the deeds are after the belief yes or no. And even in our RFP that we know that you have to have the correct belief for your deeds to be accepted. And even we know in the heated that it is your knee and your intentions that has to come first, in the amount of Binya, this is a famous statement of the assessment that you're near, has to be there first, and then your deeds are going to be judged according to that. True. Okay. So look at this verse, and see what it says we'll do the translation more or less than in and see if you get the meaning. I was saying this, this is the best of nations raised up because they call to Alma roof.
they forbid our moon car, and they believe in the law.
Did you hear that? There were two things mentioned here. Good things mentioned that our actions calling
and then believing in a law.
Why didn't the verse a because you believe in the law, and then you go out
calling the people to alone, calling them to the righteousness of what life is all about?
Get this thing right, pointing right at the mic at the speaker. There we go.
So do you see that this? In this case, you're talking about two actions, calling to one roof, and then forbidding moon. And in this case, the moon car is whatever it takes people away from a law in law, a law law law. And that's when the chef says to
How could you say you believe in the law if you're not willing to do the other two?
Good deeds. They're not just bad deeds. maroof amonkar in this case, is not just about good deeds, bad deeds
in the country.
There is talking about the Diem itself.
So whoever is not going to do that.
I'm wondering if we put enough batteries in this thing?
So when we look at this ad, show you something is smoking, I need an example. Do you mind smoking? tobacco?
Is it haram?
Or just not true?
How many women how many do not think it's really haraam? Raise your hand?
You don't think it's wrong, it's hard to quit in it.
You go to the chemist or the pharmacy, just, you know, dumb you want to get one of those batches. You can put it on and we'll help. But anyway.
If something can kill people, Is it wrong?
If somebody can cause cancer, Is it wrong? If it can cause damage to unborn babies, Is that wrong? It can give cancer to innocent children sitting in a room while you're puffing away. Is it wrong?
If it has a drug in it is it
is nicotine to drug?
Still could be mcru, right?
The earliest use
meaning haraam anyway, so I realized that it is hard to quit. But if you get the problem number one, keep asking the Lord to take it away from you. Number two, don't do it in front of anybody else. Because if they pick up the habit from you, you got that on you on top of everything else, so you need to abandon it ASAP.
All right, now I want to come back to what I was telling you about.
And use the smoking as an example. So you and I, we all agreed Today is her arm. So we're going to go back and take the hoodie, which said you had to stop it by your hand that was first Yeah. There's a guy with a cigarette.
Bring on the moon car.
says stop by your hand.
You already know that's wrong. Something's wrong. In it is it's wrong? No, you understood that.
Because if the first line of defense is action by your hand, then all the accusations that other people were making against us they're true.
If they said Islam spread by violence, they'd be right.
If that's how you understand that a date. And by the way, they will use that Hadith to show how violent Islam can be. First thing you do you don't even talk to the parent, get that thing out of your mouth bought
that thing cause cancer, like a drug in a boy.
And don't even think about a guy having a beer in his hand.
So if we look at it from that point of view, what what are we saying?
So let's go back and look at it again. And this is the case.
Like the idea that it's not talking about just moon car in the sense that it's something evil, which definitely smoking is evil. Alcohol is evil, dealing in real interest. Hey, if you said you're going to talk about moon car, how about when a law declares harben somebody declares war war from Milan is messenger on you for dealing in Riba yes or no.
It still says that in the Quran. When I read it as what it said.
It was still says that oh,
well, it was there last week. I'm thinking it's probably still there. When I was in the Christian religion. I was never sure what was going to be in there. Next.
But this is nice because 17 years I didn't see any change. And I understand for 1400 years, still no change handler belongs to me. But it says horrible war declared on you by Allah and His messenger to deal in this thing called Riba yes or no. Okay. So I don't see anybody walking up to the Muslims. When he gets his new car and his new house.
I don't see you walking up to him and slapping them and saying, Okay, give me the car.
Get out of that house. Just get out in the street.
Nobody ever did that.
So we go back and look at it again. And understand that you have us on tala has revealed to us a verse and the province of Islam has given to us naseeha. And he's given us the clear message of how to apply this verse.
Which is what
anything that takes people out of Islam, whatever will take people away from La Ilaha Illa law, this becomes an obligation on Muslims. Now, you have to stop it.
You have to you cannot stand by and watch that happen. And for instance, when that Muslims are being attacked, or they're going to be attacked, then you have to stop it. And this is mentioned in Quran with verses related to get down to Dell read it in sort of Baccarat I own 9191 192 183 and in Maya and Toba and and each time you see it, you're going to notice something this is related, especially when they're going to be going for high genoma especially when they've got to go back down to Mecca, because that's where they had that take place. That's where it took place. And also if you read the whole verse, you can understand it as well. And less Pantera is telling the Muslims at that time now
to go and fight them in combat. He tell his combat in this ayah inshallah write them in combat.
stop if they stop because otherwise you're the aggressor in the Lord does not love the aggressor. Yeah.
Using the word boom, oppressor. The next verse when it says
and kill them. Actually it says kill them in Mortal Kombat because it uses the same word from kittel. This same word, so let's kill them in combat.
And drive them out from where they drove you out.
Who is it talking about?
who's done with the Qureshi tribe who drove out the Muslims killed the Muslims, and did horrible things to them. But Allah made them learn patience and to learn how to fight properly for the sake of a law, knowing what the laws are and what the rules are, what the limits are, because Islam is about
rights and limits, rights and limits. So this is how it's understood. And no, we can put it all in balance and really get a better understanding how to look at some of these things that people have been talking about.
It is right in Islam, to stop the moon car with your hand. When the moon car has reached the level of fitna which is mentioned in the verse when Allah says, verily, this ketone is better than the fitna. This type of combat is better than the terrorism that these people are putting against us. We find that Islam declared the first war on terrorism 1400 years ago with these verses, is clearly what it was.
If we understand it, now we're able to balance this better and we can now wake up to the fact that it's our responsibility to present the right message to the Muslims, ourselves
and also to these people.
The verse that I quoted from the Quran
is not just a verse about giving Dawa.
This is also talking about Jihad itself. Because you understand that it's talking about how the full ramification of Islam it's right here in the verse.
You know, there are some groups of Muslims who would never accept that this verse has something to do with jihad, but will never accept that. I'm because they never talk about your heart anyway.
But this is the part this is a part of our life. This is what we do. This is what we're about is Islam.
So whatever is there, it's all it's not you can't take part of it and leave it. Take something and drop it off, or bring something in, add it in. It's all part and parcel, but you have to know what is the limits? And what are the rights.
And these are the things that I want to have a chance to explain to the non Muslims. I know you can comprehend this. But they've been fed a steady diet of bad information. They've been poisoned.
And we brought the antidote. The antidote for their poisoning is called ha, La Ilaha, Illa. Allah. This is what we hope Allah will bless us with when we're speaking to them. But as many of you who are here now with us willing to stand here in the cold,
I'm wondering, are you willing to go out and invite somebody to come and be with us for these events, because if they come,
at least we got a chance to tell them, then if they don't accept it, we did all we can do.
That was my message for us, we need to wake up. But before I leave, I'd like to tell you something, I'm really really tickled. I'm very happy. Because the few weeks that have been here already, we have seen some amazing things, saw a few people entering Islam in one place a few more in another place. But what I was really happy about is the follow up. The next day when I got emails or phone calls, and they told me more people came even to the masjid and said, I want to enter into Islam.
I was very happy about this, because it means that inshallah Allah is accepting what we're trying to do. And certainly I don't claim to be doing a very good job of it. But I know if Allah wants to, he can make it work. And that's all we need to know. We don't need to be rocket scientists, and we don't have to be experts on Islam. But we do know that it's important for us to know the basic and have the minimum of Islam in our lives that we have to have. But we still need to call the other people.
So I would like to get a commitment from all of you right now that you will try your best to bring at least one, maybe two, or even three of the people that you know, maybe you know somebody who is born in a Muslim family, but they don't practice Islam. He's just as important or she's just as important as anybody else. If they're a human being they're important to us.
And it doesn't matter what color they are, you know that it doesn't matter if they're handicapped or blind. It's still it's a human being. It's our job, we need to try to help them get the message. We can't make them all Muslim, but we can deliver the message Are you with me?
We'll try our best. Okay, there's, there's something I found to be very effective. And now you've heard about it. Probably many of you do better at it than I do. But it's to get up in the night.
And make Voodoo
and pray to Russia
and really cry to a law and ask him to accept what we're doing.
If you do that, if you've never done it before you really have missed some of the sweetness of the name. If you've done it before, you know what I'm talking about.
We all need to do it more and more and more. But just in that in that time when you're crying to along and begging him Allah guide me guide them, guide me guide them. Even if you don't learn Arabic at all. Just Just say that in your heart Allah guide me and guide them and inshallah Allah is capable of doing whatever he wants to do. Allahu Allah quilici
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Bill alameen who will add the jiangnan muslimeen wake up
that was the message they told me that we should do a few minutes of questions and answers
you won't do that.
No, right go home
when I go to Muslim schools, I love Muslim kids just I love all the kids but especially you know what when we're having a program and they're all sitting like you're sitting you know, I tell them I guess you are in hurry to get back to class so go ahead there go No, no, no, no stay stay.
So, but have idea. I tried it the last time I was here. It was pretty cool stuff. But let me see if if this will work. How about this? I'll ask the question. Do you give me the answers?
Okay, we'll go the other way. How about this? Give me the answers. Our guests
what the question was?
No, no, no, no, no, there's a TV show called jeopardy. I saw it. It works real good. If I'm right, I get to go to the Bahamas.
No. Okay. Well,
ordinarily, I have some questions that I bring with me Just in case, you know,
I save them from the events and this one says,
Do Muslims have to grow the beard?
The Muslims have to grow the beard? How many say yes?
How many say no? How many say I don't really care?
No, wait a minute. Do Muslims have to grow the beard? Not all of them.
Not the women?
No, seriously? Seriously? Seriously? I hate it when a woman's beard is longer than mine.
I really don't like to
call it beard envy. I don't know. But I don't like it.
It's really bad.
Do Muslim men get it now? Do Muslim men have to grow the beard?
No, they don't.
Can't? Who can grow their beard stand up and grow? Go ahead.
Stand up and grow your beard and grow hair.
Who grows the beard?
Who grows the plants? Who grows the trees a law? Right?
So it's a law that's grown it you don't have to do anything?
Except quit cutting it off after he grows it.
Is it an order in Islam for you to leave your beard alone?
Yes, that order comes in Sahih Bukhari and no peran tells us to obey the Prophet. So if you obey the Prophet, and you look and say Buhari, I think in the English translations like volume six, a deep number 798, something like that. I can find it for you if you want to read it. But the translation says that the prophets of Salaam said when they asked him about the left here, leave it
but cut this, cut this.
So you know, zip didn't hang down over in the front and strain your soup and stuff like that.
Cut that grow that or let a lot of growth but leave it alone. That's what he said leave it. Got it. Next question.
He job everybody knows what's his job? Do Muslims have to wear the hijab? Yes. How many years? How many know? How many don't care?
Do Muslims have to what? Not all of them.
Not all Muslims have to wear the hijab, not the boys.
There really no.
Now this is one. By the way, it is very important for you to understand. It sounds like a joke, but it's not. Because the Christian Catholic women, the best of the best of the Christian Catholic women become nuns that's considered as good as you can get in their religion. In their religion. If she wants to be a good woman. She has to be a nun.
And being a nun means she doesn't get married. How many husbands? Can she have?
None. And how many children can she have?
And how many grandchildren she can have. Now you know why she's a nun?
I don't know. I like the Catholic just trying to figure it out.
But the best of the best there women is not a joke, man. When they enter into it, they tell them in the name of the Father, the Son the Holy Ghost and put the ring right there and tell them that they're married to God.
This is where the john
and i owner was talking to me about it. I said really married to God and you have a problem. And I said, Wait a minute.
All you women are married to him.
said Yeah. I said you got a problem with us with four wives
as well, when do you have to start wearing the garment? Their garment is called a habit. habit. You have to get in the habit
So when you start wearing this habit they said from the first day, first day
now I say What? How long you have to wear it all day long.
But when you go in a convent, now only women can go there's a women's convent, they go in that place. It's locked down. It's like a prison. I'm not joking. They live in their leg prisoners.
And they had to wear that garment every day, even though it's only women in there. Is this what we have? No.
Our women never have to wear the job. Except if there are men present, who don't need to see their beauty, true or false.
So which one makes the most sense? That's why when they asked me, I shocked them.
Then when they asked me, Do all the Muslim women have to work? I always say, No, they don't. Not unless there are certain conditions which require it. Because the law is not oppressing anybody. Allah is not making life difficult for them. And by the way, if the nun takes off the habit and walks out the door, they will cut her off
from her connection to God by excommunication.
This excommunicate You know what, excommunicate him. If you don't pay your cell phone bill, what happens? That's excommunicate
that's what it means. Salah look at look at how funny it is. But strange. It's true. Salah one of the meanings of the word Salah is connect.
Connect it is yeah, that's one of the meanings of the word of Salah is connect. And these people, their Pope's are in their what's called Cardinals bishops can ex communicate you.
Meaning they can cut off your connection with the Almighty.
Because see, remember this in their church, you have to pray through the Father. He has to pray through the bishop. The bishop has to play through the cardinal, the cardinal prays through the Pope and the Pope. Well, he's Jesus Christ on earth until Jesus comes back. This is according to the Catholic Church zonder website. By the way, I did not make that up. It's on their website.
Would you like to see this? I have a website that I made up just for folks like that. It's called 911. Bible.
Go check it out. 911 bible.com. And another website Bible is slammed.com. Check it out. Go check it out and see what you think about it. Well, anyway, that's a couple of the questions I always get. Then another question people always ask me is how I got to Islam. And the story of myself, my father, my wife, a Catholic priests friend of mine, and how we all wind up coming to slim. How many of you like to hear that story? Well, be sure you attend each one of our programs, because I'm going to tell it, inshallah
he didn't really think I was gonna do that tonight, did you?
Alright, I will tell you where you can read it, though. You can watch it. If you go to watch islam.com you'll find priests and preachers enter Islam over there. You can also go to YouTube Islam, and you'll see it over there. And you can go on another website. It's called use of s this.com. And not out of showing up me or my name. But the reason is because so many people go to the search engines like Google. And when they type in the name, other stuff was coming up like Wikipedia saying the wrong things because anybody can change it. So we put the website up so that it automatically will put our name first. And then they'll go and learn about priests and preachers
that enter Islam. So you can go there why us you have s t e s.com. Okay, that's all the time we have for questions.
Answers tonight, but tomorrow night inshallah bring your pen and paper because I'm going to take the questions and we're going to actually take your questions, inshallah and also in the next program that we do after that, and then on the weekend we have, I think you already know about the programs we have set up to help the non Muslims hear the true message about Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, three prophets one message, la isla ha
