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

When I was growing up, I used to have a

00:00:04--> 00:00:07

black church and a white church.

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

House

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

become cloudy and Oxfam.

00:00:25--> 00:00:26

First of all, some code

00:00:27--> 00:00:34

and the promise of this clip, he said, Give me the date. And I promise you a date in general.

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

And the man will fuse

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

to give me a date, and I promise you if you refuse the game,

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

and I will,

00:00:53--> 00:00:53

hobby.

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

And

00:00:58--> 00:01:06

he said, he said, O Messenger of Allah, if I bring you a date from this man, he also promised me a dating genda. And

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

I promise you,

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

and he said, sell me.

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

And

00:01:22--> 00:01:27

60 guardians of things in Medina, and alliterations 600

00:01:32--> 00:01:35

gives you all my dates.

00:01:39--> 00:01:39

And

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

all my date for one date

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

of the day.

00:01:53--> 00:01:58

And I'm elated why he went back to university, because he knows

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

he's coming back out again.

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

And he comes to the last

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

loss my mother revealed.

00:02:14--> 00:02:14

When I

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

came into the gathering

00:02:19--> 00:02:19

the

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

data when you went to wait, I promise you one day

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

lie to you, they see that you're his face.

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

And then he went when he said,

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

he said, Get out of the garden.

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

Why? And he told them, you know, what

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

is a bargain.

00:02:50--> 00:02:50

bargain

00:02:54--> 00:03:02

that those of us may live the rest of their life in relative poverty. But with that guarantee that they will forget

00:03:06--> 00:03:18

things like racism that dealt with these issues 1400 years ago, 1400 years ago, and it's deeply entrenched with that, as

00:03:19--> 00:03:19

well.

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

He said to belong, he said, young,

00:03:23--> 00:03:27

black woman, and the neighbors heard about this

00:03:34--> 00:03:43

is an old man who still has the traits of ignorance of you, meaning the previous levitates. I asked you, how many of us

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

how many of us have the strength within us?

00:03:52--> 00:04:02

You know, how would we speak about some other race? No. blanket statement like this. And then all like that. You have

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

a hobby.

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

But you look down on people

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

must get mosquito

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

mustard today. He couldn't become a committee member

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

because he doesn't belong to the right race.

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

years ago.

00:04:36--> 00:04:40

He said you see the basic thing of Pakistan in

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

Pakistan.

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

Bangladesh.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

Sally goes Oh, yes. Oh.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

Okay. So he's obviously he's. Now he's speaking about puppy studies.

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

Gracias he wants to break away, Baluchistan was a great way to break away and

00:05:26--> 00:05:29

I'll tell you what you're gonna have. You're gonna have

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

like

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

a coup de

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

gras

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

Pedro, one end and you reach the other end, but you have your course it makes you feel

00:05:44--> 00:05:48

there's so many people even practicing people who speak

00:05:49--> 00:05:53

without really understanding the implications of their words.

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

The implication of their words

00:05:58--> 00:06:10

the vast majority of the Sahaba could not be alright. But can any Mr. murase say that he understood the Quran better than the Sahaba

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

at any level

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

know because they live

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

they live their

00:06:24--> 00:06:24

lives

00:06:26--> 00:06:30

and you look today, most of them become slaves to skip

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

many of the elders many of them know that this

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

leads to a light skin color

00:06:44--> 00:06:48

in color, the way they speak. No salaam aleikum

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

of weight on your backside

00:07:07--> 00:07:10

be above your ankles. This guy's

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

How did you become slaves to the

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

focus in life, the promise of a lot is

00:07:29--> 00:07:30

gonna focus in life

00:07:33--> 00:07:35

that you want to set the promise allows you

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

to be your role model.

00:07:44--> 00:07:48

In your old model, Khadija want to be your role model, they want to be your role model.

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

If you have no great thing,

00:07:52--> 00:07:58

you have no money, go attend even a practicing. Tell you what you'll be discussing.

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

not practicing your thinking applies. The only thing you'll be discussing is how to pray. So where shall we put the hands? Where shall we put the hand to allow me to reach an army of me and how often you see spending hours and hours just discussing these 1400 years you haven't sorted out your salon. you for real?

00:08:27--> 00:08:33

Seriously. 1400 years have elapsed. And you guys still haven't understood your salon

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

don't have a vision

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

you know, to us twice

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

in a row.

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

The row have been nominated, Rose, Rose, practicing, practicing.

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

Practice

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

practicing what does it mean?

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

To have a job she might not

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

be a Hollywood or Bollywood you know, she may pray she may not pray that as a matter

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

of practicing

00:09:29--> 00:09:36

me and you are going to be standing on one side and the lights of the Sahaba gonna be standing on the other side.

00:09:37--> 00:09:42

know people who really aspire to do something properly for the community.

00:09:44--> 00:09:51

Unfortunately, the state of the Muslims today is no vision. We don't have a vision.

00:09:52--> 00:09:56

So how are they aligned? They were a group of people who had a mission

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

In a period of 10 and a half years,

00:10:06--> 00:10:11

he made sure that everybody in the Muslim world who could not work

00:10:13--> 00:10:18

or not work that they will find that Stapleton allowance.

00:10:19--> 00:10:35

Omar said four days before he passed away, he said, give me life to the law gives me life until next year. I want to make sure that everybody, no other women

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

that no woman in the Muslim world will be any other man. This

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

is an Arabic show that the Bedouins

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

the Bedouins in

00:10:50--> 00:11:01

the mountains of style will get their allowance in 10 and a half years, Omar Islam spread from here, all the way to

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

child benefit.

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

He started child benefit

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

ratio mentioned that a group of people came into Medina and his group of people

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

they were

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

they were surrounded.

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

He said, let's go and serve these people.

00:11:33--> 00:11:34

A reason I'm telling you this

00:11:37--> 00:11:39

was one of the penguins got it.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

He was the

00:11:43--> 00:11:57

guy. He was a multi millionaire, multi millionaire. And he sets up the Monaco, the most powerful man on the face of this earth is a multi millionaire restaurant service.

00:12:01--> 00:12:06

And in the light, there was this lady, she had a small child and a baby

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

later

00:12:14--> 00:12:14

on.

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

And she said

00:12:25--> 00:12:25

he said

00:12:27--> 00:12:34

about a stipulated allowance for that child would be weaned off. So I'm gonna read the child off

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

age. And he said don't hurry, don't pay.

00:12:42--> 00:12:48

And then the most powerful man for other people. Why did he do it?

00:13:07--> 00:13:12

No, never ever mentioned. Racism is never mentioned.

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

And if we have people ready to do it, but I'm telling you,

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

it's great.

00:13:26--> 00:13:34

I tell them, don't feed the homeless. Don't give them down is your slide it brings you

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

over was a humble person

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

that went

00:13:44--> 00:14:02

because I swear he couldn't understand what he was reciting because he cried so much. And then turned around after salah and he says to you all know how many children and you feel because of your room. And then he made it

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

stipulated that allowances start from the time of the child is born

00:14:10--> 00:14:13

from the time that the child is born,

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

child benefit.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

Now, this was the vision that the Muslims had.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

I was reading

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

that if anybody came in for Juma some

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

Arabic

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

translation

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

1400 years ago

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

1400 years ago, and 1400 years later in the West, we have new Muslims coming to our

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

monastery and no translation

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

no translation

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

And then you get supply they say Sheffield is the capital of

00:15:06--> 00:15:06

America

00:15:12--> 00:15:21

they say statistics show in America that approximately 60 to 70 people set up with racist turn away from a stop

00:15:25--> 00:15:30

you've done nothing then you understand you know in Birmingham

00:15:31--> 00:15:38

I realized this because I have a huge family my brothers and sisters my wife and my brothers sisters

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

I'm by myself and my wife by herself

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

and we realize

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

you realize missing family

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

support

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

of the bra

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

don't

00:16:10--> 00:16:18

need to go back to this you know the purpose of last month and really relate to this your mind that the province of nature was this that

00:16:19--> 00:16:35

a slave girl a slave girl laws were the slaves and out of the slaves Those were the girls could hold the hand on the province and take him to any street in Medina and ask him for assistance The problem is

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

ready to assist

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

this was the character the province

00:16:45--> 00:16:49

and I start and and the characters and language needs to find to be developed

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

you know people will get angry when you read a sealer

00:17:00--> 00:17:04

is often easier you know to be abrupt to people

00:17:05--> 00:17:06

to be nice

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

to speak to people to do things for other people

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

to open the door

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

for other people

00:17:18--> 00:17:23

be crying treat the system university like you would like your own system

00:17:25--> 00:17:28

to the to the church teams

00:17:29--> 00:17:35

when it comes to systems is the one you know if somebody messed with this system

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

my system

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

you don't mess around with other people system.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

You wouldn't like it your own system when a young man came to the province beautiful

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

for the young man

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

give me permission

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

and approximately

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

how they can you imagine today?

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

How

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

long

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

is it

00:18:37--> 00:18:42

this man wants to make one of the most vile ads there is.

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

Bye bye.

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

When you receive

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

that extreme

00:19:27--> 00:19:34

like your system and you treat other people. Another one you want to practice it as Superman, but then come to

00:19:37--> 00:19:41

be here. You know you're frustrated with your frustration or somewhere else.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

It's true

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

long time

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

mean these are

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

many students who run some societies and I see this all the time.

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

It's heavy with the system, the rule with the systems.

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

That's wrong. We should be

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

we should be caring for your sisters.

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

That's how you should be,

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

you know, would bring them closer together, how you perceive each other? When somebody walks in the door, what do you think

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

is the commodity or the Pakistani Somali?

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

That's

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

why

00:20:54--> 00:21:02

I say if you can't really hear him, amongst 200 people, you can

00:21:04--> 00:21:08

make aspirations. It doesn't happen that way.

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

And you know, sometimes you have to overlook other people's shortcomings.

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

Everybody I show coming at smile,

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

often smile enough for one reason or the other. Some people

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

you know what?

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

While

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

you attach this to

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

serving other people serving your community

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

that is something

00:21:49--> 00:21:58

missing within the Muslim community. We have people who are in the facility, or going outside the person bringing the youngster into the

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

once the hub who's been

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

waiting when he was

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

the master Salah

00:22:17--> 00:22:26

the knowledge that made him but he wasn't faithful, it was dead. Every single Sahabi knew the virtue of dying, every single

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

every single Sahabi knew this, but you

00:22:32--> 00:22:34

know how many have actually died

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

and why

00:22:43--> 00:22:48

they were the best people out for the benefit of humanity. And everybody here

00:22:50--> 00:22:51

everybody.

00:22:55--> 00:23:00

Everybody here has abilities. And a Muslim should utilize those abilities but they are

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

four main the system, you have amenities for your community. First,

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

the fundamentals of your team.

00:23:12--> 00:23:14

But utilize your ability

00:23:17--> 00:23:21

to utilize the rarity of everybody within the community.

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

to people who have totally different varying abilities, but the progress

00:23:31--> 00:23:32

was really

00:23:35--> 00:23:36

hard it was the math

00:23:41--> 00:23:42

on

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

all these occasions It was his duty to reach the province of arcelormittal.

00:23:56--> 00:23:56

to

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

a tee with

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

less.

00:24:14--> 00:24:16

He said westfalen he asked his brother,

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

his brother Harley. And he said obviously by saying that

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

he won't return to life

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

is an intelligent man light hearted as he understood

00:24:38--> 00:24:42

that as a woman, I am the messenger of Allah.

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

I am the messenger of Allah.

00:24:47--> 00:24:48

And then he said

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

to us, we will utilize his abilities

00:24:55--> 00:24:55

when needed

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

One of the first people once you and I told him what to say.

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

And then he mentioned what the

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

intelligent man is.

00:25:18--> 00:25:23

And if you came to us we will utilize the words of the prophets apostles.

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

And the reasons mentioned that Hadith

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

jumped upon his horse.

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

He went and he took his soul and he went to Medina.

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

Sorry, his smile

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

says he cannot stop smiling and

00:25:47--> 00:25:48

he did not stop smiling and

00:25:55--> 00:25:55

smiling.

00:25:57--> 00:26:00

Today, today,

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

NACA has blown away

00:26:04--> 00:26:04

today.

00:26:07--> 00:26:14

And then, six months after this came the Battle of NACA six months.

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

And in a period of six months,

00:26:20--> 00:26:29

we can say from love from the enemy of Allah became the soul of a love and mystery record, only two major generals never lost the battle.

00:26:31--> 00:26:35

never lost the battle. One with Genghis Khan, and the other ones.

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

Change the landscape

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

warrior.

00:26:43--> 00:26:48

utilize this abilities. Everybody here has ability

00:26:50--> 00:26:55

that needs to be challenged channel for the sake of love. Because by online you don't know what tomorrow holds.

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

If none of us knows we're gonna be here.

00:27:00--> 00:27:03

And we need to utilize our time and effort.

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

And the other man was

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

this was a man who was a poet.

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

He was known as a poet.

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

When the people of Medina began to write poetry,

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

started disarming to other Sahaba came to his defense.

00:27:33--> 00:27:47

lace, a goofy in his machine, and her son would sit on that chair, and they would recite poetry. or know that the Sahaba I know that the profits are more modest as the chip and the machine

00:27:50--> 00:27:55

is a lot healthier for those assistant photos.

00:27:58--> 00:28:01

There was a man who had never carried a sword in his life.

00:28:03--> 00:28:12

Never carried a sword in his life. The duration mentioned that one day, the most of us have made the waves at the fabric of the purpose of

00:28:15--> 00:28:19

man from the distance. He said to himself to

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

the women that you deal with.

00:28:31--> 00:28:34

But the promise, utilize his abilities.

00:28:36--> 00:28:40

He will send him on expeditions, and the duration mentioned at once.

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

And they all ran in different directions.

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

And for some stupid man.

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

It was like to point me in the remembrance

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

members of

00:28:58--> 00:29:09

the virtues of martyrdom, the virtues of gentlemen, and the rest have mentioned that he inspired the Muslim so so much that they regrouped.

00:29:11--> 00:29:19

They regrouped. They attacked, and they defeated the enemy. When they came back to Medina,

00:29:20--> 00:29:22

they told the woman is a Muslim woman.

00:29:23--> 00:29:26

And a more reasonable mind it was sort of told herself

00:29:27--> 00:29:32

a second life pulpit aracite to me the same poetry that neuroscience

00:29:41--> 00:29:41

Center

00:29:44--> 00:29:45

is a recite for me,

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

but alone, here's a patient

00:29:52--> 00:29:55

who attended the pulpit and he recited the poetry and

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

he gave it to son son was a

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

He went home, and he gave it to us what he said, he said, If I die before, make sure that I have very

00:30:13--> 00:30:16

different abilities, but they will utilize.

00:30:18--> 00:30:21

Everybody has a favorite.

00:30:22--> 00:30:25

Everyone needs to be channeled for the sake of the last

00:30:28--> 00:30:33

book, the Muslims are people who are behind aspirations. What's the

00:30:34--> 00:30:37

pessimistic one, we trusted a lot.

00:30:38--> 00:30:39

We trust the lowest

00:30:41--> 00:30:48

level Muslim, the people who have aspirations, people, that when we leave this dunya

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

don't finish it.

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

When you leave the studio,

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

when you leave this

00:30:58--> 00:31:02

is not, you know, how do you want to be remembered?

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

How do you want to be remembered?

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

In a sense that you need,

00:31:15--> 00:31:19

you do something in Estonia, which is something you want to pass when

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

you want to be in your grave.

00:31:28--> 00:31:29

If that's something

00:31:30--> 00:31:32

you know that people would remember

00:31:34--> 00:31:40

that from the depths of your brain, that you have an impact. You've left a legacy behind you.

00:31:42--> 00:31:52

And you're you pass away before many, many years after you you left Java, which is still benefiting watch you on your brain, if

00:31:55--> 00:32:01

you could to somebody that when they remember you in their previous a lot, they make love for you.

00:32:02--> 00:32:05

You built a machine, you can help an orphan,

00:32:08--> 00:32:13

that when you're in your brain from the depths of your grave, you leave a legacy.

00:32:15--> 00:32:16

The time will be

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

so loud, the teacher was

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

thinking

00:32:23--> 00:32:33

he was the king of Syria, and some of the words that he said under justice from the New Deal was immensely highest.

00:32:36--> 00:32:39

That I've studied the life of war.

00:32:42--> 00:32:46

And since apologies and the Muslims never had a need

00:32:48--> 00:32:51

of over 450 is beaten before I've

00:32:53--> 00:32:53

never

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

been able

00:33:00--> 00:33:00

to have

00:33:01--> 00:33:04

you seen entire Shafi text.

00:33:07--> 00:33:15

And he was a judge. One day somebody bought a case to it. And he assessment basically passed judgment against them. And this man went to the

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

justice.

00:33:27--> 00:33:28

Justice only

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

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

calling back and you reassess this case? judgment in his favor, man, we got to

00:33:42--> 00:33:43

win in your favor.

00:33:44--> 00:33:48

A plastic furniture waiver? What are you playing for now?

00:33:49--> 00:33:49

He said,

00:33:54--> 00:34:01

in the remembrance of a man that His justice was such that even from the depth of his break, it hasn't been

00:34:03--> 00:34:05

even from the depths of his bravery as

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

he was.

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

Humanity should see our

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

impact

00:34:18--> 00:34:23

impact the community around us, but then we have to be transitive enough

00:34:24--> 00:34:25

to see something within us.

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

He

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

forces

00:34:37--> 00:34:39

me to take on this type of assignment.
