after he went on to Luma Newcastle's South Africa.
And then he went on to do a BA in applied theological studies in the University of Birmingham and thought he was at Medina
ministry Minister for subsequently two years,
the past six years he was among Birmingham's largest
German multinational and without further ado,
another salon, LSAT, studying random.
Brothers, sisters Family Law, disease is a
speaker system not to the
use my own
You know, the problem with these introductions is that they're outdated. I think I must have left that jammy, must you asked it about 10 years ago?
are we going to speak about the life
above? Well, your mind?
I mean, one of the reasons obviously you were just a hobby. He was one of the most eminent
but what made
inshallah I have no intention of giving a normal talk inshallah hopefully will engage you in this as well.
Omar, in a period of 10 and a half years,
being the Hanif
10 and a half years yet made Islam the superpower on the face of this earth.
And what was on the candlelight before Islam?
Allah Allah says himself
that before Islam,
I used to look after the sheep.
And if I did a good job in looking after the sheep, you know, my father would sometimes give me some dates.
And if I failed, then my father would beat me.
And when he became the heroine, one day he stood up,
he went to the pulpit, and he stood up and he said he gave a talk. And he said before Islam.
Before Islam, I would raise sheep, or look after the sheep on the outskirts of Medina. And if I did a good job, my father would give me some dates. And if I did not fulfill the duty that my father would beat me,
and I should look out for the sheep for my Auntie's from the tribal zoo. Who knows who the child when zoom is here.
The tribal behemoth who belong to the tribal bunny makuu.
we live in
and others. So he says, The hi to look after the sheep for my Auntie's. At the end of the day, if I fulfill my duty, they will give me some dates and some reasons. And then after giving this talk, he descended from the pulpit, and of the man owes that money. What did you do you only disgraced yourself, said, you know, when the people came.
And they came to me and they were listening to my speech.
I began to think that Omar is something special now. And I wanted to bring myself back to Earth.
So therefore, I reminded myself of my origins.
This was Omar who before Islam, and then a time came that same amount of no kebab sat at the feet of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he became the most powerful man on the face of this earth.
And look, I'm going to make this brief because obviously, this is a two and a half day course, which I do. So I'm going to
try to kind of condense as many points which inshallah will be beneficial to you and myself and yourself, but the life of our most Ababa.
So our what we want to understand is what made Omar tick
1.5 billion Muslims.
And if I ask you a question, if by some miracle tomorrow 1.5 billion Muslims disappeared off the face of this earth
would humanity miss the Muslims
and our not talking about an individual basis, I mean, your neighbors might miss your samosa and your football hours that you give to them and your Kabbalah.
That you give to them on Ramadan. But as a community as a whole would humanity miss
many Bitcoin coffees, many be celebrating. The truth is
not really. One. How did that happen?
Because see Muslims today don't embody the deen which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And there's a simple reason
that our religion is not a catalyst
for us becoming real buildings,
because becoming people who are motivated, has two categories. One how you perceive your religion. Now, how do we perceive our religion today? So they say, ah, and I've mentioned this recently, but in the talk, once I get harder, they say, Oh, you know, the brother is practicing. So what when they say the broker is practicing, what do they mean? They mean, the brokers gonna bid
He's gonna bid and the broker is practicing. That's all it means. He may know nothing about the D.
He may have very foul character, but he's practicing
with a sisters say you want to marry a sister practicing last year? What is the criteria for a sister practicing? You told me?
Sorry, what'd you say?
Good job, good job. A sister with a heavy job. And the sister is regarded as practicing
law. If that's the criteria, that's our threshold and we got serious problems. We have serious problems. So we will understand what made all of the tick
if I knew that our loved a dog I will know that talk
about say that you will never meet a man like
you will never meet a man like
that. How did it happen? And you will know that
he was no longer did not go over the title the woman
He was Don't ask.
Sorry. Come on, guys.
Don't be shy. Another molana that you studied with your local machine.
Some of us still have
the physical scars. And if you don't have the physical, the psychological scars, the most days and they will look better when you were there when we were there.
Five o'clock every minute.
You know, till seven o clock and then we're the longest two hours in your life.
what was it luck over the title?
very good to distinguish here between the right folks. And Bob Dylan how tos and folks what else?
Omar farrokh Amira Morgan money
a house. You will know that a swap swap means the boneheaded one.
He was also known as the Mr. Muslim relates generation where the person meant of it to us when
I saw the bald headed one.
kissing the Hydra as well
as any other a few other titles. Omar before Islam was a man you know, he was a wrestler.
him hardly been bullied or the camerawork amongst those who would wrestled he was very tall, very powerful. The narrations mentioned that when the alarm who would stand
with a group of people it was though he was on Mount.
That's how told the power of the law and who was very powerful road person and he was known amongst the people, his tribe, the bunny.
We're not a strong tribe. But amongst the tribe have been added they had one man who was powerful. And
he was known for his strength. And this is why we're in the province alone. It was a long cane with $1. That is a lie. They were Southern made a special one. That special one was a lot of sisters D through two people. One was Amara, who was the other one.
The second one was Abu Omar assist this sisters D through one of these two people, either amount of love or a boob job.
And then in the narration, the professor
said, Make your own local.
Pamela on the line who with the machine again became tired of the Dow the profits a lot and he was a look, you know, they gathered and they said, We can't control this man. Many of them are migrating to Medina or to other senior at that time. Who is ready to kill Mohammed
who stands up
and he leaves to go and kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And on his way, he meets a man called the eyelid nae Abdullah
Abdullah dilla saw a model with his sword walking through the streets of Mecca. And he said, are you going? And Omar said I'm going to kill them. He thought he was not a Muslim. So mine said, Do you think he tried his clan with video if you can.
So Omar said, looks like you also embrace the religion. I'll start with you and then I'll deal with him.
So they began to grow.
And now he said before you deal with me and the purpose of a lot of them go and saw your own home.
Your own home,
said your brother or your sister embraced Islam, and one or the other went and he mentioned that he heard a humming noise outside that door. So he knocks on the door. And they opened the door and his sister says I saw evil intent on my brother's face. And they took
the Koran which they were learning and they placed the under the hood fun. And all of the alarms said What was that noise? I heard she said what noise
said I've heard that you have left the religion of our forefathers.
And and the brother in law. Anybody know whose brother in law was?
Anybody know whose brother in law was? Anybody know what his sister's neighbors?
Very good. Fatima. She was one of the early ones who embraced Islam. What was your brother in law's name?
Say Pingzhi. One of the 10 was guaranteed by the province of Nova.
Say benzene they were the son of Zane check out which was very interesting personality.
Safe is a two on one. He said what if the truth lies somewhere else.
And Omar was a monkey man. He grabbed his brother in law, he dropped him to the ground. And then he started pulling his bed and he sat on the chest and his sister move forward and he slapped his sister.
And the narrations mentioned as he began to believe a belief and she said oh enemy of Allah Do whatever you want to do. But you will find this I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and Mohammed is a messenger and you will find us firm upon this deed, do whatever you want to do.
You know what they would say about a month before Islam
they would say about one of the Allahu they would say that there's more chance that his that his father donkey will embrace Islam and Omar will embrace Islam.
more chances are his father donkey will embrace Islam, they will embrace Islam
and eration mentioned and then the progress of Omar they will seldom said that the heart of demand is in the two fingers of Allah. However he wishes.
all of a sudden after striking the system back to remotes. So he said Bring me bring me the paper.
So they bring it
and he begins to recycle. And it starts with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and now the Arab Mashallah he had no concept of mana Rahim they would they dismiss this Mecca lahoma so the narration mentioned he read it Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and he threw it on the ground.
And then he composed himself and picked it up again. And with great difficulty he passed the word rock man over him. And he began to recite the sort of the Baja and so Pamela The more he read the more last panel Darla open his heart
and a lot open his heart to the degree that he stopped. And he turned towards his sister. And he said, Is this what the Muslims have been running away from? And then he began to recite more and more, until Allah opened his heart and he said to his sister, tell me
where is Mohammed?
And he said he's in doubt on outcome. Nagano outcome was a house which was you could make the first Muslim slide in the history of Islam. It was at the mount the foot of the mountain of Safa.
Lot of move made this way. And some of this habit of the alarm were in the house. And when some of the Sahaba saw Omar come in, they hit
the alarm was a very mighty warrior lady embraced Islam, only three days before this handler said, don't fit if someone has come with a pain or haven't done enough. If not, then we will kill him with his own soul.
and Hamza Viola opened the door once a Harvard grad one arm and the other Sahabi grabbed another arm.
And they brought him in.
And the narration mentioned that the purpose of the lesson um, said leaving, releasing, and then release them. And then the professor melodicism grabbed his garment. And he said, Oh, when will you heat
when we knew he,
and overfill to his knees, with a bear witness that there is no good but to love you.
And it was from that day, that
It was that day that Omar was counting. If Omar had not embraced Islam on one would have been many, many of the other Arabs, most likely you would have been in the ranks of people like Abu jihad, Abu lahab. Pamela
after that they almost all the illa unroot eventually became a meal what we mean?
When he came after embraced Islam, he said our message of a lactone we and the truth
is it told me if one of us died in spreading the religion
do we enter into paradise? And the Prophet Allah said yes. And he said a message below what are we waiting?
What are we waiting? So how am I you know, today, people, if you look at the ancestors of Islam, when they die, they dedicate their lives to spread the message.
And today, we can't even speak to only
we can't even speak to our friend.
You know, we feel embarrassed. Why do we feel embarrassed? The reason we feel embarrassed? The truth is that there's no real deep belief.
There is no real deep belief. There was a belief it will motivate you. And you would have that concern.
On the Messenger of Allah, if we're on the truth, and let's spread the deen and the province of Muslim gave him the permission. And the Abdullah memasukkan of the law says we were proud Omar embraced Islam, because now we could come and practice openly. We could pray Salah by the Kaaba, and it was on this occasion for this reason or the lander was given the title.
Iraq, the one who distinguishes between right and wrong. And earlier the alignment says that every single other's hobby when they migrated. They did it secretly, every other hobby besides Oman locata Omar was known. The reason mentioned Oman or the Aloha new came to the GABA and all the chieftains of the court he used to sit around the Kaaba. You know, they used to like chill out, you know, like nowadays, you chill on shisha houses, your sushi houses here.
Plenty of them you only show houses.
But in Birmingham, they just all day long. See
and then supine a lot some of them go to the machine and then they come back this one Muslim
Muslim don't have time.
Muslims are meant to be you know motivated people
Muslim are trying to change. How do you have time hanging around in shisha houses.
So on one of the Atlanta came to the leaders,
the machine again, and he said to the machine, the key the leader chieftains is a Let me tell you that means
I'm going to migrate to Medina.
And if anybody wants his wife to become a widow,
and his children to become an orphan, they meet me behind the van.
And then Omar Lila is one
visually, and he played two cards and then he migrated and nobody stood in the way.
And then, as I said, I want to go more into the elephant.
He stayed with the province, Allah, Allah cillum. On every expedition, he was with the province.
The province of Muslim left this dunya and he was pleased with
and then he stayed in the elephant of
Abubakar of the alarm. And whenever whatever the left this dunya
was pleased with Oman, Qatar
and the prophets of Allah Salaam said, he said, I saw a dream
that Abu Bakar is taking out water from the well. He takes up one or two wiki. And then Omar comes. And he says that bucket becomes a huge bucket. And Omar takes out
he takes out the water
and everybody's satiated. Everybody drinks from an eat, they are satiated.
And people go home.
And this was an indication among shots. Not that he was better than
that his halibut would be one of prosperity, this
was like, you know, all over the land became a meal of meaning. And then he had a concern, you know, every single evening or whatever the alarm would walk around in the community every evening.
Because why? because let me tell you who a leader is, you know, who can really lead is a real leader is that person who serves other people. The problem is
that the leader of any group of people is the one that serves them. And then there was a loss of them said in amazing ratio, the only reward greater than serving other people
is to die for a just cause to die in the path of Allah only reward which is greater than serving other people. Today, waste is hidden
with ways to think about serving other people.
As religious people, we don't really regard it as a part of the oma. So can Allah. Allah Allah would go up every evening, he would have Islam with him sometimes.
And upon occasion, on one or the other without with him was
was who he was a one of the 10 that was guaranteed by the purpose of a lie there was
also a multi million a
multi millionaire you know, his sister was married to who
he, his sister was married to below.
a multi millionaire. And the sister was married to below the bla
bla bla was a slave, a freed slave. Before the Sahaba, it did not matter. For them, they look at characteristics, this thing about you know, this own this nation. That's an issue that Muslims are a serious, serious problem. So he took them over and a group of people came into the vicinity. And all of the Allahu said to me, he said, Let's look after these people.
All right, him and man even over the Allahu Romain in the company of these people, until it was what time until, you know, a good portion of the night had passed.
And there was a child amongst them which kept on crying an hour on the hour and said to the mother said, you know, look after your child, why is he crying?
And then later on the night, the child still crying, and one of the lotto came again. And he said, what an evil mother you are. All night your child cried, why don't you look out for it? And she said,
has stipulated and allowed for those children who are weaned off and I'm trying to wean my charge off an hour the Eliana asked how old her child was she told him and I said don't hate it.
And then over the aleinu and the frigid Salah in the front of
the nation, you mentioned under oath mentioning because I swear by Allah almost cried so much.
On cried so much, that we could not understand what he was reciting in the budget Salah. And then after the hour turned around an hour earlier man said to himself, he said won't do your own work. How many children have you killed up to this law of yours. And then he made the stipulate that every child in the Muslim world which was born would be given an allowance, Chow benefit, started with the Muslims
started child benefit. Now Canada wants to stop it was a serious problem.
Muslims are the biggest families
since shisha houses because they live on family credit benefit. So Omar on the other hand, was stipulated a family allowance, child benefit for every single person, anybody
who could not work in the Muslim world was given an allowance
the same amount of the sore a group of Christians. So how long they suffered from leprosy. And what are the took out well from the beta model.
And he gave them is spent on them to cure them and those who could not be cured on what are the love spent on them until the final days or more. One saw a Jewish man he was he was begging and one of the poor the governor and he said, why is this man begging for?
So all his life is paid taxes? Now he can't fend for himself? Why is he begging
this woman four days before he passed away? You know, he said to him that he said to her leave one or the other and lose it all is evil by Allah. If I live until next year, no woman in Iraq wouldn't need any man Besides,
I would provide for every single woman in Iraq. Now I asked.
When How did this become religion, for us to say religion
for us to bid on a job and a bit of Salah in the middle of the lotto Parana dica Dasa, that that is the How did this become deep?
Because this is the thing, we have restricted religion to a few rituals.
This was about the Sahaba of the Allah animala like every Sahabi was made in the masjid but it wasn't made for the masjid. Today, we are made if we go to the masjid slightly by the machine, only for the four walls of the machine. So any outreach work we don't do it this is not religion.
Any income of people is not a religion. The man was a multi millionaire man no the profits on the line they will sell them guys but guarantee gave a guarantee that a man would go into gender on
the robots and lots of them said if there was a prophet to come after me It wouldn't be
said if I walked out if one walks down one path shut down can never take that path. The prophets Allah said last night I entered into Jenna I saw the beautiful white palace and I asked the agent who does his parents belong to and they said he
said Oh, they tend to own his own. I wanted to enter it by remembered your VEDA and only a long big cry
from you. Men will guarantee gender but they spent the entire night
looking after why fundamental because they religion motivated
and that's the reality.
You know, we
He would speak about, you know, liberating Afghanistan, Palestine a lot, you know, closing Guantanamo Bay until the depths of the night.
The depths of the night.
A conflict you summon a hero can't wake up.
doesn't mean that you can't speak about grand piano obey. If you don't pray your slop nobody's a think of priorities.
You show me when Sahabi who did not pray.
Oman was on the opinion. And this way the humble is anybody who doesn't praise out the phone. That was almost opinion.
But see that religion motivated them and motivated. And this is why we know what law he is. This is those eduation know, people don't understand this. How
people don't understand.
How did you in a period of Canada half years take down a superpower which lasted what 1200 years.
The Persians were a super powerful 1200 years. You had the Byzantine, the Eastern European forces. How did he take him down in a period of 10 and a half years?
And then what did he do? He bought a system. Very few people embrace the rest realism. The Persian religion are very few few more embraced Christianity. But when it came, the vast majority of that area embraced Islam. What because they they didn't see him as Congress. They saw these people, they had something different about them.
They will provide and there's a way
out. Nobody will remain hungry in the 18 year feature. amo Ramada Amara de la nuit. This was the known of the year of the ashes, there was a famine in Makkah Medina area. And the narration says, they say By Allah, Omar would say, if I can feel the pain of other people, I will not be able to appreciate it.
And they say and then ration dimension, this empire, Allah if, if the family had remained another year or would have died, his eyes sank in his completion became dark. He became weak, because he felt
he felt for other people. And this is why even walk around the streets do the kingdom of other people. Rachel mentioned that he went to the outskirt, about three miles from Medina. And when he reached about three miles from Medina, he saw this woman with her children, and the children are crying around and she's cooking something and one of the adults said, he said, he walked up to the gave us alarm and said, Can you come close? And she said yes. And then I said, what you cooking. She said, I have nothing to cook. What I have on this wire is water. My children are crying out to hunger. And I hope that they think mommy's cooking something and they will fall asleep. And I began
to speak to her. And then I want to the alando said, What do you think about?
What do you think about?
And she's an Ico made to Allah.
I complained to Allah.
But he said, he said, he said, maybe Omar doesn't know your state. She said he's on
mute. And he doesn't know the state of his subjects.
And this is the heart of the law. And then he mentioned I don't want to when he went to the bathroom, and he told the keeper, he said, Give me a sack full of food.
And the people who are secular food and almost a police on my back. And the keepers had oatmeal with me, let me carry it and almost a place on my back. And he said
he carried along when he said he became angry. And he said
so will you carry my sins on the Day of Judgment.
And then over carry the SEC was at that time the most powerful man on the face of this earth.
He carried the sack
until he reached the tent. And then Rachel mentioned he lit the fire by himself. The smoke was going through his beard. And then he cooked the food himself. And then he began to feed the children and the woman sitting there she doesn't know that this is all about she said I swear by Allah you are better than
another don't mind
that it was dark. It was cold. And I said to Oman, I mean it's cold. It's dark. Let's go back and Amaro the alarm who said no
Should I swear by Allah will not remove oh not move from this place until I see the children laughing like I saw them crying. And then I don't mind I'm not Oh says these are I cannot express to you, Elmo cried for just Allah because he had seen people crying out of hunger. Today we see people dying out of hunger. We see Muslims dying out of hunger. But we don't have
the Eman the motivation doesn't allow us to put our hands in our pockets. Why?
Because we got these aspirations and these aspiration which never finish
these aspirations which never finish,
you have a car, you have a bicycle, and you want a car, and then you got a bigger car and a bigger car and it never finishes.
You know, you have a house and the and people are starving to death.
You're gonna take an orifice on this thing. Are you gonna take your car which into your grave?
One thing that you are guaranteed that you're going to take in your grave is your actions. How you spent your life. And this is what motivated the Sahaba.
What motivated the people at
was that there was a reactive believed?
They believed they had a firm conviction, they sat at the feet of the province of Milan, how can you now if you become a leader, it's like, you know, you have a luxurious life over how suddenly Alam had his daughter, the wife when
she entered that house over and over, you know, lived, he lived very simply, he lived in a mud hut. And she said, Oh, my father, you know, great wealth was coming to the Muslim land, and whether you have some luxuries, and
the wife of the professor was telling me
telling me, how did the message of a lie live?
Call the brothers.
When the alarm entered his house, he saw the mo is a Muslim, there's nothing in the house of the brothers.
And the role is the last one was lying on Macs. And when he sat up either the imprint of the Mac on his back. And then and he began to cry and he said our message of Allah look at the opulence which the Persian and the and the Roman Emperor is living the message of Allah.
is an omen even you even you do not understand.
The Maya example is like a person who takes shade under a tree. And then he moves on.
Who has made this abode turn?
Tell me one person who chose to come into this world. Tell me one person who took his time to leave this dunya nobody. And that's the reality.
That's the reality of life. Nobody you come in voluntarily you leave in voluntarily. But then Allah says about the part that the Julia woman hired to do.
It didn't get diluted. Because it's the now
and everybody around you speaking about the now
everybody around you speak about you know climbing the ladder of success. What is the ladder of success is how do they define you put on your TV station, and you have programmed like the apprentice.
She knows what she wants. She chews on anybody's toes to attain what he or she wants. So that's the culture that we invite, because that's the, the antithesis to what we really believe.
We believe you're
gonna build kasasa like Allah says, they give preference to others. Why? Because they believe that they want to stand in front of Allah.
They believe that you know, life is temporal, as people that are more of not a target of the land. They understood this. They understood their responsibility to humanity. What happened with the Muslims, and this is the reality religion is defined with what amongst us? Do we regard any social work as a part of D?
How many soup kitchens do Muslims have in Sheffield? The Christians have sukesh kitchens.
We Muslims don't do that stuff. And if you look at the beginning of this deal, the vast majority of people who embrace this religion were who they were hoping
they will be what I believe are the greatest objection that the leader Mr. Kane had, whether
We can't sit with these people they have no life. So they were sent to the province of Lhasa. They said, okay, have one day for them and one day for us, they will embrace Islam. And Allah intervene. Allah say they will stay because they have a loved one. What did the religion do? The religion created hope for those who have had no hope.
And today we don't do this. Oh God is saying, he said I swear by Allah, I will ensure that the Bedouins in the mountains of Santa will get their allowance. They will get their allowance for saving the young boy
Yes, he had Kira
Kira to look after these people.
Why because they regard to this Apollo theme. What's the general?
What was the general you know, discussions amongst Muslims nowadays? It's where you place your hands.
The vast majority you know, you go into the machine and they're just disputing on issues disputing on issues like Salah how to pray Salah.
You know how to how to do that gives a crap issue that'd be resolved 1400 years ago. But the truth is you don't want Muslims you go to the average legit. They will never speak about any social reach any outward outreach land.
The working in a community working with a youngster bringing him to the masjid, anyhow. Why?
Because we get embroiled in these little nitty gritty, 50 issues, which make us feel good. The truth is, you know why? Because the truth is, you and me know that we can deal with the issues outside.
We can deal with issues outside the problems that we have.
And therefore we get involved on the nitty gritty. And people I
know they sat with the progress. A lot of the people had a vision.
They were people who had a vision.
And they had this concern, or every single governor.
woman had it every hour.
He demoted who did he demote? Let me tell you, generally when they say oh, he demoted hardly even really even just demo karlovy vary. You know, we did
it remoted south of NaVi walk us one of the 10 was guaranteed gentlemen, he demoted Amazon. He demoted
me, he demoted
me he didn't demote him. But he he rebuked him a number of occasions. He demoted Mr. Miyagi. How can you demote?
How can you demote These are gangtey Jenna You know what? Could overhead standards
and these you have to live up to the standards and this is why the law and achieve what he did today What happened? Somebody becomes the wheel of the machine.
He's gonna be there till the day he dies. That most committee will remain that we speak about, you know why? What's wrong with the Muslim leaders? Why don't they leave the throne? So Pamela, you got to take the mustard committee, you don't want to get off the Muslim committee. At least this guy's got a whole country that
he asked you a question. And you will never leave the throne of that mustard.
slamming Islamic societies and I don't know what Islamic Society. But what if you are in charge of Islamic Society, you know,
you should regard as a responsibility.
You know that you are accountable to me, once I have you ever took a role that he wanted? I will run came to the prophets, Allah and His Messenger of Allah make me a government have always said no, we don't give to those who, what. But we check those people who have the ability. And we utilize those who have the ability on one or the other. And there was one sitting and a person came
to hear me sugar cane came into the gathering on a city and he seemed very concerned. And he said, Emily, like Michelle said, amirul mumineen, what's wrong? He said, you know, whenever they suppose I only see two types of people, two types of people.
One is that person who
has, who is very pious, but he doesn't have the ability to motivate people. He can't organize things. On the other hand of another person who's not tied to the same degree, but he has the ability to motivate people and he organizes well, who's I don't know who to give the road to.
I don't know who to give the road to
and I said give
To the one who can organize.
And the most of what he said, because the one with the pious piety, his piety is limited to himself. But his inability to organize motivate people has impacted everybody else. So the one who's not to take degree, that's also limited to himself. But his ability to organize and motivate people, he's got a get up and go. Impact everyone. This is why your students here? Well, why I personally believe that the most the time when actually the vast majority of people life change is that universe, you have plenty of time. And if you're, if you're not local, you've got plenty of time to think, you know, you've got time and you've got either one, either, you know, you can just chill out with the
residents. You know, go nightclubbing, go womanizing, but in many people who have this Islamic Society is motivated. If the brothers have a concern, they change people's lives. They change people's lives lunch. But on the other hand, if you're not assisting the serving society, you have no right to criticize.
But Muslims are very armchair critics, we do nothing. We do nothing. But we're always pointing the finger or a mirror of Islamic Society isn't good enough? Oh, my God, I would say regarding any issue is that there's no there's no hatred. Now Oh, I was a person, strong personality, strong character.
General. So why would almost every issue he would do much wrong? He had people sent all Christians and Persians and all the way from Iran. So he could do much wrong with them. Why? Why Why is Omar need to do much better when he was a strong personality? The problem is a lot of them said, you know, Huck, run from the tongue of
the ark, he says in 16 places Allah agreed with the opinion of Homer.
And the quote on many verses were revealed according to the opinion,
and almost saying, Do Matura why I asked you

Because this much why something consulting other people is something very important you you will need in your life.
If you want to do fate, anybody tell me?
Okay, understand them as a group.
Okay, you could make a mistake. Very good.
That's very good. People. See, normally now you say man's got strong character? Yeah, he's got strong opinion. What does that mean? Omar was a man who was drunk and nobody had a stronger character. But nowadays they say he is not strong. Listen to nobody have the means he got a listen to nobody to strong code on what with a strong character. But why did you see he didn't Mashallah because he wanted his opinion to be the best. And secondly, see, people who have a backbone, then applying listening to other people's opinions.

Consult the young people as well. Because you do not know where there is over often come out the machine people would stop.
Upon occasion, this lady stopped
and she said
Tomorrow, you must always bear in law. I remember the days that you walk who may or may have been the small team up and used to run around the marketplace. And then you became oma. And today you have become.
And somebody said, Oh, lady, take it easy on the man
and almost Be quiet.
And then she can kind of No one said, I swear by Allah. If this lady spoke to me from morning to evening, I will not leave this place, beside to go and place.
Should you know who this lady is? This lady is the lady when she complained about her husband lost
his job. In a law, a law has heard the words of that woman who complains about her husband, she argues with you. And she complains about her husband, Allah said, and what I said if Allah can hear her word who's
now you all know how powerful and one of the alanda was. And it's a hobby that my father came into Medina.
As he wasn't as a hobby. He said, my father came to Medina and bought some sheep.
And my next day, my father said, I want more money, and he later on, and he says that my father grant on what I need, punched him in the chest.
He punched him in his chest, he himself that all of a sudden, he was a strong man, but he did nothing to
forgive him. For the sake of a loss of power.
the sake of our last panel about
the woman only gave positions to those people who would just this was almost
upon occasion, you know, a man cave, one of the governors of one of the librarians kissing a child and you know what it was like before Islam? They say that he would often smile and laugh for no reason.
And sometimes he would cry for no reason. And somebody one day plucked up the courage, courage and why is it that sometimes we see laughing for no reason? By crying for no reason? And over the line was said before Islam in the days of Jamia
the mccanns believed that the idols of mantra were the most precious idols. So one day we were on a journey, and we had no idea for the what we did, we had dates from Africa. So out of the dates, we called a God out of the dates.
And later on, went out provision became exhausted, and we got hungry, we began to dissect God. So we took off his air and we began to eat is a took up his nose began to eat his nose. And sometimes when I remember this, I begin to cry, sorry, I begin to laugh, how stupid we were.
And so the reason I cry is that before in the days of Jahangir before it's not my head to do, and his daughter loves me, like any daughter loves her father. And the Arabs had this culture somehow, tribes had this culture, because one day I took her to the corner of the city, and I began to dig a ditch. And she began to dig a ditch. And then I took, and then I, I took my own blood.
And I threw her into the ditch.
And then I began to fill up the deep dig, bury my own daughter alive, to climb over to the to my father, my father. And sometimes when I remember this, I begin to cry. And then Omar embraced Islam. He sat at the feet of the greatest operations, a lot labors of love. And then the time came that Omar became a meal movie and he was kissing a child. And one of his governors came in
and he said, Oh, a meal a woman and you kiss children.
You can choose one on one of the Atlanta sat with the brothers and the Arabs before Islam didn't kiss children, who was not regarded as macho.
It wasn't regarded as mature. You know, man, your man if you can battle somebody,
you're a man if you think
you know, man, if you do hit enough other people. We don't serve other people. No, no, that's not matching.
The little man came to the end he said his Salah was kissing his grandchild, and he said, You kiss children.
And the Rosemount seven said, Yes, he said to his children, he said no about 1010.
And he said, I've never kissed one of them. And the brothers on the line. It was unbelievable luck.
Is there anything I can do for you? Is there anything I can do for you in a lodge removed from your house? When Allah has removed Rama from your mercy from your house, and the governor came, and Omar was kissing a child and he said Amil nominee up children, he said, Yes. He said, Don't UK children know me. When I enter, the house is locked down.
Nobody moves. Even the goldfish stopped swimming.
And homophobia, London removed him from his post.
He removed him from his post, he says those who are harsh upon their families should never have a post amongst themselves.
Those who are harsh upon their family to not have to post
on another occasion,
Omar and he knocked on the door, and you came to complain about his wife, he knocked on the door. And then he heard I want to be scolded by his own wife. So he he walked away someone one of them opened the door. And he said, Why did you come?
To know tell me why did you come for no reason?
He said I asked you by Allah, why did you come? So on the third time he said you know what? I came to complain about my wife when I saw your Good.

But when he became the governor of Egypt,
and almost son drank
over some time.
And his son came, he's a drunk, you know, with me.
I didn't want to rip him in public. So I ripped him in the courtyard of my house that Omar found out. And Omar wrote a letter to us and he said, I didn't know you were so brave in front of me, because my own son, you didn't whip him publicly, is it sending send him to Medina, He sent His Son to Medina and almost ripped his son in public. On another occasion, I want to

his son had a horse race with the Christian, the Christian horse one December, and when he slapped him,
the Christian complained to Bob, on one call the son, call the son an hour, ask all the way from Egypt.
And then he called a Christian.
And he asked him, he says, do you stop it is a beat and let it beat you.
He allowed the Christian to beat the son of us. And then on one of the allana turned towards a Christian, he said, Now beat our good, the only reason his son beat you was because he was a son of us.
He said, beat him as well. And the Christian said, The middle one, meaning I've beaten the one who beat me. And I
asked, and he said,
since when? Did you start taking people as your slave? Or was that on my heart?
And the mothers bore them as free men. They were born as free men. A lot. I don't have the time, you know, because Jessica regarding the governance of I take two to three hours, or Amaro was so strict with his governance. They had they would have to be at court all the time. No governor had the right to have a gate in front of his house.
Pass was the governor of Ufa and he lived by the marketplace and he put a gate outside his house and on one of the new found out at oma center man, Hamilton them muslimah all the way from Medina, to Ufa, and he said take when you reach there, take SATs was sad, happy.

on the Battle of Ohio. He shot 1000 arrows when he was attacking the Muslim 1000 arrows. And the problem is a Muslim said to him 1000 times made my mother and my father be sacrificed. And either the man who stays for no other Sahaba in the province of La Selim combined between his mother and his father, for somebody said my mother wanted to be sacrificed for others use me my mother,

Now I know better than you. Yeah. But the truth is really to get motivated. If you want to change or if you want the Muslims situation to change the Muslims need to get motivated. The way you get motivated as I said to one how you understand your religion, because you can be practicing but you can be talking, you know the nitty gritty, freaky issues for 20 years.
