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

That's it.

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

I mean, I mean and I think you and I wish that you also a very versatile man and inshallah made this and I'm done be better than the last time that and my love for you all assume that maybe

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

I mean Mashallah you have a beautiful background is it visual or is it vivid? Is this a light background

00:00:24--> 00:00:36

that you see behind the life background of the metal mask and one of the two famous muscles and this is a live background and night show that a little bit of problem setting up the mic

00:00:39--> 00:01:22

you really particular about everything Mashallah not only the contents but also the background, the lighting and the mics Mashallah you put your hand in everything Mashallah it's it's a pleasure to be working with you and to be hosting you and shoot you know, there are a lot of people are very excited to hear from you, especially this year, Dr. Decker. While the whole oma is experiencing an unprecedented event, for the very first time Ramadan without the massage open the closure of the massage, it is affecting the hearts of hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide. And I believe you have some very nice and soothing words, to assure Muslims that even though the massages are closed,

00:01:22--> 00:01:36

but Ramadan comes to us in our homes, and our hearts are open, if the doors of the massages are closed due to the necessity. So I will give you the mic, so you can educate us a little bit and lift our spirituality in this respect, go ahead.

00:01:37--> 00:01:43

And I do agree with you, I do agree with you that it is the first time Mashallah or I would say

00:01:45--> 00:02:07

that more than half of the world the majority part of the world is in lockdown. And the worst part of the lockdown, economical problem. Problem for me, the biggest negative impact of the lockdown is the closure of the masajid where we cannot pray Our five times the congregation salah and that has been a great last words

00:02:08--> 00:02:19

of Allah that may give us much better opportunities. And because of this lockdown, we cannot do certain things and

00:02:20--> 00:02:32

so we pray that the benefits of this lockdown may be better than the negative factors of the of the lockdown and the four points that I can think which will be a major problem

00:02:33--> 00:02:40

in Ramadan, as far as I'm concerned, because of the closure of the massages is that we cannot pray Our five

00:02:41--> 00:02:48

Salah in the mosque number one, number two, we will not be able to do telavi

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

number three that we will not be able to take off which is to do in a mosque

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

and number four is that

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

the small percentage of Muslim Ummah which does sama

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

during the month of Ramadan, we will not be able to do it. But these are the major factors that I can think of which will be negative impact on what I'm done. And we have to make the best of it and try and convert it into a positive factor also under a positive factor. I will discuss

00:03:20--> 00:03:50

you know that was going to be my next question because in the middle of that, you know for yourself you're a person who barely rest but Masha Allah even in this lockdown, you're very active. Mashallah, I would say you've been dour. You dream of dow whenever you go to sleep. So can you share with us some of the positives that not just yourself have been experiencing during this lockdown, but also

00:03:51--> 00:04:08

the old man should focus on those positives out of this lockdown in order to take advantage of all to turn this calamity and this crisis into a beneficial practice in our life. I would appreciate if you can share with us your thoughts in this in this regard.

00:04:09--> 00:04:19

As far as my personal experience is concerned as far as concern, I normally because of the day I shifted to Malaysia operating from home and office is just

00:04:20--> 00:04:33

so long, don't hasn't caused much change in my schedule except two factors. One factor that Mashallah no one is coming to meet me. there I'm saving approximately a couple of hours a day.

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

And even the messages and receiving on my social media that reduce

00:04:41--> 00:04:45

my working hours in hardcore dava has increased by a few hours.

00:04:47--> 00:04:52

I started the positive factor that all of our all of our Muslims around the world

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

can take advantage of lockdown is that other tools the negative factor that we can do ethica because to do it

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

Have you been in a mosque, but I will take it to another extent that you know, in this isolation of lockdown, we cannot do the technical Sharia type of ethical. But surely we can conclude that well last minute Allah because we can pray to Allah, Allah more we can ask for forgiveness more, we can good wobble. So let this isolation or let this lockdown get us closer to Allah subhanaw taala because of our daily routine that most of us have a warrant officer, etc is not there. So we can spend this much time more, or maybe the more major portion of the time with a last minute Allah in our ibadah in reading Quran, in doing so, this is the positive aspect, we may we may miss the 10

00:05:46--> 00:06:05

days of ethica in the mosque, but if you have one full month of isolation and more time with Allah inshallah, this may be more beneficial than the 10 day these 30 days if you spend correctly, and we do more, and we read the Quran and charity, the other aspects.

00:06:07--> 00:06:14

So I feel that if you considered more aspects inshallah, the net result of this armband will get us through that.

00:06:16--> 00:07:02

Wonderful Jazakallah Hale and so Dr. Decker, as you know, with the lockdown, there are 10s of millions of people who have lost their jobs. So just a couple of weeks ago, these guys were either middle class people have in their homes, there have been the cars going to work, earning the living, putting bread on the table, living a stable life, and all of a sudden things turn upside down. They literally have nothing. So what is the role of the old man, particularly those who have come a lot of mighty blessed with wealth, whether they are business owners, factory owners, or even sponsors, a lot of people, employers, a lot of people working for them, you know, during this crisis, what can

00:07:02--> 00:07:16

they do from an Islamic perspective, especially during the month of Ramadan, in order to alleviate the suffering and the you know, the strain and the adversity that lot of people are going through.

00:07:19--> 00:07:41

I do agree with you, that majority of the people in the world almost all have had water last time, less loss or loss. But there's a small very minute percentage of the human being who are benefiting because of rundown. For example, I know that some of my friend Bob businessmen in the food industry, they say during such situation, food is a must.

00:07:43--> 00:08:26

They have to have. So these type of businesses flourish more. So my request number one that do a small percentage of businessman who are making more profit, they should dedicate this complete extra profit in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala. Number one, good businessmen who are big, they are suffering loss but Allah has blessed them in all these past years, two years. And they have made millions and billions of dollars. So even though this lockdown may have caused a loss to them of a small percentage, but what Allah has blessed them in the past years, yet they are much above water. So, this time, they should help the people the human beings, the Muslims, the non Muslims around

00:08:27--> 00:08:45

besides the compulsory Zakat, which is the funnel, that is 2.5% in most of the cases of the surplus well above the nisab level, I would suggest that they should give more off of the donation of the lilla above the cigar as well as even the boys for an insert of Baccarat

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

jack number two

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

was number 261 that if you

00:08:52--> 00:09:33

throw a grain in the way of Allah subhanaw taala Allah will make that into seven years each year bearing 100 days 100 con, that means one corner one vein of your Allah multiplies it to 700 times that is equal to 70,000% profit 700 times in business terminology is 70,000% profit. So if you spend in the way of Allah helping your other brothers and sisters of other humanity, whether they be Muslim or non Muslim, and seem to it you will get 700 times that is 70,000% profit. And since you're doing it than there are various happy to say that Allah multiplies

00:09:36--> 00:09:41

the 700 times the 70,000% would be multiple times multiply.

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

And again

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

number five, do that.

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

That

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

if anyone is not allowed for you to take anyone else's if anyone take the life of any of these

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

human being, unless it be for murder or for spreading corruption in the land, it is as though he has killed the whole of humanity and there was continues if to save one human life, it is as though we have saved all of men.

00:10:14--> 00:10:50

So, now for the return to see where human life is very easy, because there are many people who are on the verge of death because of hunger, because of lack of facility because of the job. So this is a good opportunity that they can get the swab even if they see one human being It is as though they saved the whole whole humanity. So with a small amount, you can see several life in this situation. So my request to our brother or sister is that whatever life giving you more than what your requirement is, a percentage of that whether it's a small percentage or a medium percentage is a big percentage spending

00:10:51--> 00:11:13

Allah Allah will give you multiple times more reward, taking care of our brothers and sisters in various ways. I'm gonna put some known as the basic necessities some don't have a job, etc. So, the more we help, the more inshallah we'll be making the better you love this month on that executive. Jessica now head on for the very comprehensive answer.

00:11:14--> 00:11:21

In the field of Tao, a person like yourself was a leader and a pioneer Masha Allah Mia love this year and your entire family

00:11:22--> 00:11:53

has been also a victim of the stereotyping and the bashing which the media is always presenting bashing and constantly stereotype in Islam and Muslims particularly the new are the peaceful pH preachers like yourself simply because the invite and the for people to the ones have died in the past few weeks. All the effort which has been made by channels like Fox News, 700, club, etc.

00:11:54--> 00:12:46

Through the past years, to demonize Islam and Muslims and great preachers like yourself and others have you can say vanished through the effort of the Muslims whether individuals or Muslim organizations in the United States in Canada all over Europe, we have seen look at people who are Muslims fighting over toilet papers, fighting over a pebble break but Masha Allah on the other hand, whether we hear on TV or the Mashallah human appeal or esna and ignore those organizations and all this Linux centers in in North America are providing food and they're delivering the food packages to the doorstep of the people irrespective of their religion. They don't ask them whether you're

00:12:46--> 00:13:15

Muslims or not. So we we as Muslims will not ourselves immune again is the infection we are suffering like everybody else, and many of us have lost their jobs, but for Muslims to take a part of the saving in this crisis and during this very you know tough time and to distribute food packages and to go door to door risked their lives to get their neighbors and non Muslims in the neighborhood. How do you perceive this and how do you evaluate

00:13:17--> 00:13:48

Mashallah, it's, it's a great world, Mashallah, my dream in different parts of the world, whether it be Malaysia, whether in India, and the UK, whether it be in America, whether it be the Western countries in the Muslim country, the humble in LA, and really, even though the percentage of the Muslims are less in those countries, which are majority non Muslims, we find that Muslims Mashallah have gone out of the way that besides helping Muslims, that even helping non Muslims, that is very evident in the anti

00:13:49--> 00:14:05

Muslim minority. And this has really been very good that though there has been a negative reporting we come around but majority of it Mashallah we find that a lot of positive impact has come out, where, recently yesterday, I just heard

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

a talk from the Prime Minister of

00:14:11--> 00:14:11

Canada,

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

Justin Trudeau, who was really praising the work done by the Muslim organization, how they have the people, even in India, in India, where the situation they are blaming the Muslims for the spirit of the Coronavirus and the Coronavirus came to India because of the Muslims to such an extent that they are even not allowing in some part in some parts of India. They are allowing Muslim to sell the goods in the vegetable market. And if someone buys they're forcing them to give it back some facts is is they're really going out of the way and the mainstream channels in India. They are actually mining Muslims and one of the leading channels You will be shocked to know the name of V news. They

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

said the major cause of the spread of Coronavirus and

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

India

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

Malaysia This is the biggest big news of the

00:15:11--> 00:15:17

COVID-19 got some Muslim communities in Malaysia and and he

00:15:19--> 00:15:23

sent them to India to spread it. I mean which logical person who believe in

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

spite of all this hate speeches etc yet

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

you'll be shocked to know

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

that that one of the biggest donors to the Prime Minister for the cause of Coronavirus and Muslims,

00:15:38--> 00:15:47

the major pharmaceutical company, which is making the vaccine, but Coronavirus is a company which is similar to plywood.

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

And now recently I heard

00:15:51--> 00:16:07

that there was a Muslim from Aligarh Muslim eurocity, a doctor who has developed a rapid test for the COVID-19 so you'll be fine and we find a lot of Muslim charity. And so we say that if Muslims have

00:16:08--> 00:16:14

have spread this Then why are you using the vaccine made by the Muslims? By reading the news Bell Muslim you know?

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

But the thing is that how am I the kind of the media again, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah says in the Quran that they plan and Allah to plan Allah

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

Subhana Allah the plan

00:16:30--> 00:16:36

sounds like it's a joke, but this is ridiculous. This is really ridiculous what there's what they're claiming.

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

But 100 positive and negative

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

Yasin Corona jihad in India, I'm moving to see a Muslim company.

00:16:47--> 00:17:08

There is Coronavirus coming close to a Be careful of mining as they are allowing in some parts of the country dandeli Muslim to get admitted into the hospital. But in spite of that, the Muslims are working tirelessly as you said, and even in India Mashallah you find that a great deal of Social Work is that even among the numbers

00:17:10--> 00:17:40

and 111 you know, Dr. Decker, I just want to shift a little bit from this little bit depressing you know, reality of how some people are born to hate the hate mongers despite all the good data you see around them to speak about your interesting personal life a little bit, Masha Allah, um, I consider myself a family friend. So I've considered myself very close to you. And it's an honor and handleless net.

00:17:41--> 00:18:13

For a guy like yourself, whom if you allow me to use the term restless, giving our 24 seven How did you find time to raise your kids you have such beautiful three children, two girls, and one boy, Masha, Allah, the old half of the Qur'an, under study in Islamic Studies at the most prestigious Islamic school in the world, Mashallah. And they also they're very good at sports. I mean, I have to be very careful around them, they are all

00:18:16--> 00:19:00

you know, they're all black belt holders, Mashallah. So, you know, the viewers think that those are in our and this you, they live in a very humble life, in a sense that they're not into sports, they're not into fun. They're not into, you know, sending their kids to medical schools or Applied Sciences. They need a very low life. I want you to share with the viewers and I'm sorry to I mean, I never planned I never told you that I will be asking you this question. But I think it is the height of the viewers to know that you have such beautiful three children and two daughters and, and a son of beautiful son Mashallah was following the footsteps of the Father. Father clinically now shefali

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

Mashallah. And tell us how did you do it? I mean, how did your children get a black belt

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

in karate or martial arts, memorize Oh, for an and while, you're a very busy man.

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

I would like to say that, number one, whatever this is a bit my children are my son. And my two daughters that are their

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

secret

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

number one is by the help of Allah subhanaw taala. His mama is blessing without which nothing was possible. So number one is the help of Allah. And after the help of Allah, if the credit goes to a person, it is my wife, my wife, I would I would give almost all maybe a small percentage will come to be educated almost all goes to my wife, because I'm that the reason that when I chose a life partner, my main idea was that it should be a diet and you know, so that, you know, my children would

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

My Salah would also become naiya. So the major tenet actually goes to my wife. And initially when we had learned that there's no Islamic school, not a proper school in Bombay, what should we do? So we had hired graduates from the Islam youth in Medina. And a couple of features, maybe we'll give them you know, home training, they'll go to the funding school, when they come back, they'll be chained at home, but just you know, and my wife thought that I'm being too selfish, let her alive giving us

00:20:30--> 00:20:51

the wealth of we can afford private teachers, and they go to a normal convent school and guess they study English, etc. They call mom we give them the Islamic, but isn't it too selfish? So imagine just within a few weeks, and my wife, that is in 2001, that's about 19 years before we thought of, Okay, let's start eating some food.

00:20:52--> 00:21:05

And knowing very well that starting Islamic school is a big headache, big burden, taking care of our children, three children, but we're here, but we said let us let us do for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala let us do for the ummah. And we started a school and

00:21:07--> 00:21:23

we were able to achieve more than what we thought, by Allah. And I will choose a unique School, where you know, we did Arabic from the age of two and a half law officer, and a person because by the time the student

00:21:25--> 00:21:56

standard is a main language, we considered English and Arabic, along with the local languages, which is the public speaking English public speaker from the age of four, and it be public speaking from the age of six, and we see the Quran and the Sharia effect will be the comparative religion. Within the Bible, we teach them within the Gita, how to how to converse with the non Muslim convincing me question on session, having schools, every student in the school compulsory has to be a black belt on

00:21:59--> 00:22:26

both of them, they become black belt by fifth or sixth week, they become like village, maybe savage tender, but everyone has to be a black belt before they pass the school that will swimming. So we concentrate to the advo very long, because there are many things but with all this, the major benefit was for my family. For me, my wife and my children. There's a Venn diagram that

00:22:28--> 00:22:34

I'm giving to my children. My wife is our principal of the school

00:22:37--> 00:22:51

what benefit the children got, even if I don't count that the benefit that my three children got from this starting Islamic school, my intention was not for our children, but

00:22:54--> 00:22:58

now at this age at a young age, they start giving lectures

00:22:59--> 00:23:09

and and all three of my children they have got different speciality like my son firing as you said, he should be

00:23:13--> 00:23:18

given in several countries Mashallah giving lectures to 50,000 people 100,000 people

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

So, as far as my son is concerned, he specialized Mashallah, besides his Sharia

00:23:27--> 00:23:39

and only three months before you can get the degree of Bachelor cellier that's from from Riyadh, which I consider one of the best Islamic universities in the world dilemma.

00:23:40--> 00:24:03

And my daughter, like my youngest daughter, Mashallah, she's an expert with a pen. A pen is excellent Mashallah. She's excellent in English language, because you know, Arabic as a language, and a script is excellent, but she handles you know, the integral part of mental media is handled by my daughter, she's stupid. And Mashallah in school

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

please.

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

And I may read

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

and that is excellent.

00:24:18--> 00:24:21

But my daughter Rita, Mashallah. She can decide

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

and by

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

mistake my

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

children

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

but they cannot decide anytime just from you know, start to learn, you know, if they're Britta Ravi, some part of the Quran they know very well, maybe 80% that they have to devise. But my youngest daughter is that half is as excellent Mashallah, how to defend. So most of the pressing uses that I dropped out in the in the press it I first make it in my English we did not average English. I give it to her. I give the point.

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

She professionally Mashallah. The way she writes and the way she put the salami touch is something which is unique. So she had that unique skill

00:25:13--> 00:25:28

that she's very good with the wife is very good with that. She's passionate. Yeah the difference all teachers of mine, they have different speciality and all are good in their field and that's an AMA from Allah, Allah And after that, I would like to thank my wife

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

whom whatever little bit mentioned

00:25:33--> 00:25:39

also in the field of novels because of my wife and I'm coming on the show today on

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

social media.

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

Yes,

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

we all we all your wife, Mashallah

00:25:55--> 00:26:43

want to address because to me, presenting the viewers here, first of all, is pertaining to your respected and honorable wife May Allah bless her. There are very few people, especially those who are who would dare to speak about their wife, Nicola mistura. mistura is the word and in Arabic means she should be conceived. But, you know, even from an Islamic perspective, this is not true. So you're coming forward to acknowledge your wife to recognize her effort, and to give her all the credit and I see a lot of commands now people are going crazy behind every great man, that is definitely a great woman. So thank you so much for being a role model for acknowledging the

00:26:43--> 00:26:53

sacrifices of your wife, because I'm very certain for a person like you, your wife must have sacrificed a great deal. And also,

00:26:54--> 00:27:21

while you're busy, Jazakallah Ferran and on behalf of all the oma to yourself and your respected wife, may Allah bless her. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep her in good health and keep you go both as the best partners Indonesia and inshallah in Ghana. Now, what do you see this question? It's a tough question. Only if you're ready to take a tough question yes or no? So a lot of questions. I know he's

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

gonna like the stuff.

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

So now we're talking about, you know, fadak Zika. And

00:27:33--> 00:27:36

you say that Zika is the youngest Mashallah, how old? Is she?

00:27:38--> 00:27:56

youngest, he lives in this How old is she is, she's now 21. Mashallah. So if Raja says, Daddy, there is this guy who shows interest, and he wants to propose to me he wants to talk to you. But there is no problem.

00:27:57--> 00:28:23

You say better, what is it? And she says, he's an Arab, or he's a river from the USA or is coming from Singapore, he is not from India. What are you going to do? How are you going to behave towards that? And I didn't talk about further here. I'm talking about the youngest daughter, you sweetheart, she says, This guy has shown interest. So how would you actually act? And what steps will you take?

00:28:25--> 00:28:52

The first thing you have to realize that yes, it is, it is it is preferable, but not a must, that if you marry among the same communities in society, so that the social culture is the same, this is preferable, but not a must at all, what do we have to look at the Beloved Prophet said that when you look for a life partner, look for four things, one is beauty, second is well coded humility, and fourth is virtue and amongst all of this,

00:28:54--> 00:28:55

what is the best So,

00:28:57--> 00:29:13

with all the other factors as you if you get someone like anyone, anywhere close to the Saba, he may be the most boring man in the world, he may be the most ugliest man in the world, he may not be coming from a normal family, but he feels the quality anywhere close to us.

00:29:15--> 00:29:19

There is no option and there is it would be the biggest gift for my

00:29:21--> 00:29:42

for my daughter and followers. So maintaining the virtue. So when you look for a life partner, what you have to see that if the virtue is high, the higher the virtuous, the other things can be sacrificed, but if a person is not about us at all, and as he is not following the main pillars of Islam, not praying etc, and then whether he is Indian or

00:29:43--> 00:29:44

useless.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

And believe me, we check what is the most difficult to check built, you can see and you can decide whether or not to check them out. You can check the bank balance, you can come to normality also you can see the three virtue is the most difficult

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

You can do negative testing. That means, for example, if you know want to know whether a girl is virtuous, if she's wearing a miniskirt, she's not watching. But if you're wearing a hijab doesn't mean that you watch it.

00:30:15--> 00:30:28

So checking the quality of virtuous in individual individually is very difficult. Coming back to a question, if my daughter comes and says that the proposal has come, I feel my daughter herself is quite mature enough

00:30:29--> 00:31:01

to know the good and the bad points. And believe me, we have discussed this issue of marriage in many years. And we are very free. And all of us are open to it in discussion, if she if she comes to know of a boy, who's a virtuous Muslim boy, irrespective of the other criteria, and if she gets that I'll give them permission, I will remind you what I can, and then give my advice. If the question does not to be worthless, even if it's an ad of no problem at all. Because our beloved Prophet was dead, I

00:31:03--> 00:31:24

don't even know another runner to break when Adam, neither is no white superior to a black neither black or white. That factor of society is benefit of a very small percentage, but the virtue is the highest. And that's what we're looking looking for the wife, or the life partner, and that's what I look for my life partner. But

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

at that time was was very less, and I could not find anyone for my life.

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

And believe

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

me

00:31:41--> 00:31:41

when I got

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

160 kilometers from Bombay, the first guy

00:31:52--> 00:32:11

and I like it, the best way that I can find I'm lucky you Mashallah lucky you and hamdulillah? And may Allah grant your children with spouses to follow their footsteps and to be even better than yourself in sha Allah is that so that, I hope you're not upset that we were brought up the family matters? Because

00:32:14--> 00:32:59

Yeah, I believe your family is my family. And actually, the viewers and people do have rights upon us. They want to know how to live our lives, how do you even how to socialize, you do have a social life at all, or we're constantly traveling from one place to another. As a matter of fact, the currencies that we're living in right now, I was scheduled to meet your good self a couple of weeks ago, what Alhamdulillah for Allah knows, for whatever reason, maybe it is for the best of everyone Allah postpone that visit. But it brought to our attention, the fact of the matter that the world has become a small village. And while the people who are propagating evil that are using the

00:32:59--> 00:33:47

technology, the social media and the internet, to spread the evil, we as Muslims, and as there are those who truly believe in the oneness of Allah, and those who want to spread and share the goodness with people should take advantage of these facilities more than anybody else. So and hamdulillah should relax. Now we're meeting you in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, that's several hours flight away from me and the viewers in Japan several hours away from you in the States. Likewise, some flights will take 16 and 20 hours just to meet in person will meeting and hamdulillah virtually no, we're not missing anything. I want you to give a word of advice to the viewers and to myself as how to benefit

00:33:47--> 00:34:40

out of this advanced technology which is not you know, it's not exclusive for certain people. Now even the youngsters, my six years old knows how to use a social media that nobody knows how to buy one of the rated for Muslims to be utilized in good causes. Five months ago when we started with a chat platform, electronic Dawa, and they announced on my page that we are looking for volunteers for 135 people turn them we trained a few of them handler ship are left with less than 100 day, we have in five months, over 2050 new Muslims and all of that is done entirely electronically on line and handled they'll show color. So I just give you a little background of our case. And I would like for

00:34:40--> 00:35:00

you to share with the viewers that it is not only the duty of that can navigate that and it has taken his share that to Zack and Nick has devoted his life news of Esther's and she's mad at me alarmists with him. Every family every Muslim family must have that tonight. So if you can join

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

Give us, you know, your insight into suspect I will appreciate that.

00:35:06--> 00:35:27

Regarding your main question that how can you use this technology that advanced in the last few years and few decades, and we are a different age altogether? And this is what I always and why is my Muslim Brothers my my die is that unfortunately, as far as the Muslims are concerned, we are very backward.

00:35:28--> 00:36:13

And I've given a similar thought, maybe 10 years back on how backward we are with the satellite. And no satellite media was number one, no one and yet I consider to be number one. And now the social media is catching up. As far as social media is concerned, in the limited knowledge that I have, of the Muslim doing diet, Tao on social media, I feel that they are under utilizing it. And our Muslim wwox I'm sorry to say they are not specialized in this field of social media. that the reason if you see if you see a finger, the amount of followers they have on the Facebook, I feel this person should have more. Why could we be able to see the CPA? The number one person on the Facebook, any

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

personality? is a football player,

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

football player Cristiano Ronaldo,

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

then Lady Gaga

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

was 130 9 million

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

i would i do i see which are the top 10 in the world.

00:36:33--> 00:36:52

I've never seen just now clean is back I saw the photograph of Lady Gaga. Because those of you that are given COVID-19 and how the how the main celebrities of the world? And then the first time I saw the photograph, I don't know she looks lesson number two, I mean,

00:36:53--> 00:36:59

the different the the the the the followers of the different people and the peak and who has a different

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

now but what we do, we have in in our organization and Bombay, we had more than 500 on which of the top people in the world which politicians are top having the followers on the social media, what are the other people who's the top, top 50 in India, who the top 50 in the world, so that we can see how we can learn from the people.

00:37:24--> 00:37:51

What I feel that if people are going for the haraam, like when I received the Grammy Award, what the way they organize the the function is excellent, the Grammy Award Oscar award, then the idea came to me why don't we have a peace conference somewhat similar to that? People thought I was crazy. Yes, we spent an amount, but the amount of money spent was the next. So meaning the largest English Islamic conference in the world in Bombay and 1

00:37:53--> 00:38:17

million people came the state was set up and Bali would be number two in the world. They were shocked that how could Islamic function be so grand lightning with the best of technology? When we did our our training program, we broke a world record of shooting on 4k 8k cameras. 40. So coming back to your question of social media, I feel I'm very sorry to say it's a little bit training is given to our days, they reach will be multiple times more.

00:38:18--> 00:38:28

So I'm shocked that they're spending so much time I spend so much time spend 10% of the time and spend 10% on technology, you're retrieved multiple times.

00:38:30--> 00:38:50

But the thing is, quality is more important than quantity though the time and I forgive it later the day mommy just a few lectures a month, but the reach is big. Similarly, now, the Liza was not there on the social media to be social media reach is very less as compared to the satellite, no social media.

00:38:51--> 00:38:58

And one more thing that I have to tell that the numbers on the social media shade. It is it is it is it is the deception.

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

And I give my example. So

00:39:03--> 00:39:21

I'll give my example. For no one can say for example, I had a talk yesterday, late for the first time organized by our own organization TV. We didn't have the beautiful 8k camera view the iPhone, and the setting was at home. And by the time the

00:39:22--> 00:39:25

program ended in 2.8 million reach

00:39:30--> 00:39:59

2.8 million I know that that's only in one and a half, one and a half. But again, it's the deception I think it's a deception way. I'm only talking about one media. Yesterday we were on various platform. We were on Twitch TV English beastie Voodoo is the Bangla TV, Chinese on Facebook, on YouTube, on Instagram, as well as on Twitter. So we want full social media and foresight channel. Coming to the Facebook 2.8 million people's digital reach is a deception.

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

people that saw a 911,000 it was one and a half 911,000 thought, but I know, it was not a correct figure. It's a deception. It is 911,000 people who saw more than two seconds

00:40:16--> 00:40:49

how many people saw more than one minute 181,000 Give me the statistics. Total people all put together that thought is is is 982,000 minutes. Then I divide this number by 290 minutes to full programmer for 90 minutes. So if I divide this full figure nine on 82,090 minutes, I get a total of 10,600 something people saw full fine sitting at the home. 10,000 people seem full. But the 2.8 million figure the deception nightmare multiplied.

00:40:50--> 00:40:55

So when someone comes at me, Oh, you don't mind my program.

00:40:56--> 00:40:57

I make a point one person.

00:41:01--> 00:41:30

Or maybe 10, isn't it? So Facebook is a big deception, satellite, or any satellite for anyone to be aware of satellite, you have to see minimum 10 minutes. Some, this is a survey of you know, many organizations that can report some organization ugly for two minutes, because when you are starting a channel, you normally stay for only two, three seconds. Sometimes you miss them for maybe half a minute. So if you stay for more than three minutes, that means you're watching the program

00:41:32--> 00:42:23

in Facebook, to give a deception, they will come to second which is not done in the satellite. So people have a false false notion that Mashallah I default to 2.8 billion others come in 2000 you know, I call is different. So the thing is that a guy should know, like, if you want to YouTube, the average watch of my program was one minute on the program. Whenever I give a lecture three hours, it was 27 seconds. In the YouTube, the people that thought was more than four, what more than 54,000 but the average was four five minute so the sort of views on the YouTube have a bigger percentage as compared to Facebook. But Facebook is more it will be used by 2.5 billion people in the world today.

00:42:23--> 00:42:58

I see a movie what is a movie there are no monthly unique viewers. So if you don't know from the reach of the Facebook and social media at the maximum then you have the YouTube then you have the WhatsApp same as Facebook and Instagram having more than a billion YouTube is 2 billion reach WhatsApp is 1.8 billion then if you go to Instagram it is more than a billion so the the movies monthly unique viewers or monthly unique followers so the because we don't know the reality of social media via social media but

00:43:00--> 00:43:15

Mashallah, that was actually exactly you do all the math and you keep all of that in mind a lot of work but Masha Allah, may Allah bless you. And I guess that would lead me to say So shall we expect the BS convention for you soon? virtually online in sha Allah?

00:43:18--> 00:43:25

Sorry, I didn't get a question. Should I say, out of all of that, can we expect a peace convention, but online?

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

online?

00:43:29--> 00:43:34

Peace convention will not be the same impact of course, of course. But

00:43:36--> 00:43:50

I personally would not feel it would be that that impactful? Yeah. having so many convention so many conferences, I just thought that the speakers when the speakers and I logged into CNN, but

00:43:52--> 00:44:10

the PS convention is gonna be different. You know that that can I see that you need to grab a drink. You're having sore throat, you've been talking all day. And it's already midnight, your time or past midnight? But the but but I'm, I'm I'm awake most of the day.

00:44:11--> 00:44:16

The toughest question I have all the viewers are asking, when is the next time

00:44:19--> 00:44:59

Next, after the next day for another live interview? They're asking what is the next one? I'm only limited to this. By the fall the calls have been coming. I'm not answering any call. I'm not taking any calls or any questions from online. Just because, you know, I thought I will. In the first place in the first meeting I would share with the viewers many things that they would love to know about yourself and you've listed family and some general advices but you owe us so that the viewers are asking what is the next time if you would allow inshallah after I'm done bye

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

I

00:45:01--> 00:45:19

got what I have to check is that as I told you earlier that as far as the request for public lecture, when I left my office in 2016, in Bombay, there were more than 5000 invitations for a physical lecture for me pending outside India. You're lucky, Mashallah, I

00:45:21--> 00:45:47

mean, I never had any online lectures, because if I allow online multiple times more than physical lecture, and every year this balance is increasing, I used to attend to go to me only a few countries a year. So, and I know the impact of a physical lecture much more. So I prefer a physical lecture. And online as I told you that it was a yasir Qadhi, who would like

00:45:49--> 00:46:04

to admit to the viewers that it was only a couple of days ago, when I had a chat with Dr. Decker. And I said, I would love to host you. And he said, despite the fact that there is a long queue of over 5000 requests, but

00:46:10--> 00:46:15

he will not allow me I already have so many requests, and many of them are very close friends.

00:46:17--> 00:46:18

To me, you know, like you

00:46:21--> 00:46:23

know, who is like me? So that's why I said yeah,

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

especially

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

because social media, there is

00:46:30--> 00:46:30

so much

00:46:33--> 00:46:34

TV

00:46:35--> 00:46:39

reviews, only two people have refused the only three

00:46:40--> 00:47:19

out of the 100 requests I got for Ramadan. When they Chagas Riccardi, one of yourself. And the third is the main government of Malaysia. I you know, militia has been a few of them. The only accepted three and I have agreed to give on my own satellite, and my own social media twice a week in the month of Ramadan Allah name programs program. The first one was yesterday. So every Saturday and Tuesday, that is 930 GMT, that is 530 militia time, is it time would be six hours that we'll be able to 1130 all the time is

00:47:20--> 00:48:02

actually 12 noon, and inshallah every live show of yours will be aired live, I will take the live streaming and shallow and put it on your chin and hold the TV HR board, we did that because I'm putting the effort of giving what I had initially it was only Facebook, then I added YouTube to it, then added Instagram, Twitter. And then the final thing for 51 we didn't have the equipment to put on piece TV. So finally we got hold of some equipment, and we've got the broadcaster by navigating the value, the quality should be there. And that as you live you would be coming very soon. So that you know the reach is bigger, the satellite reach is much bigger. So again, irrespective whether you

00:48:02--> 00:48:38

know, nine out of a million people saw auto physical capacity, the piste viewership is there. So I don't want my effort to be less in terms of reach. For that reason, when adding 50 I felt very happy. Okay, fine. Millions, you know, if not bigger, at least minimum minimum, minimum 5 million will watch minimum. So talking about each of the B PC being issued 200 million Mashallah. But not like everyone comes on the program, if it's a very popular program on the Primetime, the rich goes for five to seven, 8 billion at the time that is less different, not a popular program, you can go down to Alcoa.

00:48:39--> 00:49:02

And these are real figures, not figures, what many of the people say because they may be paid money for it. So we have the statistics of the world, but natural media, what we have to understand that many a time people go into social media, and they concentrate on parts of a mission are spoken. The number one English spoken in the world by the Muslims in the world, it's in India, the maximum number of Muslim

00:49:03--> 00:49:07

people in the country that speak English number one is India in

00:49:09--> 00:49:12

Pakistan, fine, you concentrate on European countries.

00:49:14--> 00:49:19

So the thing is, is that if you do not cover these countries, the maximum number of Facebook users

00:49:21--> 00:49:28

in India, the Facebook users of USA, only 130 million Facebook users of India 260 million.

00:49:30--> 00:49:50

USA military military, again, so if people don't know where the people watch, and if people are beaming a satellite, a language where people don't watch? No. So like, I mean, people don't deserve a proper survey. If you're getting a particular social media, some type of social media more popular in the in the

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

Gulf and the Arab countries, some social media more popular to do a survey that if you're going on Facebook, what is their main purpose? If you're going

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

Duty, what is the main purpose?

00:50:02--> 00:50:17

What is the purpose? So unfortunately we have the Muslim dive and as specialized as the non Muslims, the non Muslim die a number of followers if you see on the on the on the

00:50:18--> 00:50:26

technology I mean Allah tala oh no problem. So we don't we don't follow the verse of the Quran pasado

00:50:28--> 00:50:39

343 that as the person who is an expert, but what we should do, I always tell them in the satellite, make less program the quality the reach is bigger than more programs of less color.

00:50:40--> 00:50:45

Same is the same with the other thing. You have a proper graphic, let the people appreciate it.

00:50:47--> 00:50:58

So this, this you think, you know we are doing for sake of Allah? Yeah, I'm doing for personal, no notification. But when we do for sake of Allah, Allah,

00:50:59--> 00:51:14

Allah Allah, Allah makes you people accept you. So even though we have shifted from Bombay, to Malaysia, and our focus now has gone more on to the social media for other reason than other

00:51:19--> 00:51:43

promises. So if every day he does a little bit of research, what is the difference between streaming of a normal normal software and a specialized software? What are the differences in clarity? What's the difference? natural, your whole impact of our non Muslims when they see when they see a program which is not very clear, it is very shabby The background is not there it is blurred. How many accept the message

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

it is very clear, the audio is clear the visual is here. The people are presentable, the background is good, the graphics are good.

00:51:53--> 00:51:55

Muslims should be the best time

00:51:57--> 00:52:09

to use the technology in the right way. Whether it be social media, whether it be the satellite, whether it be the print media, I feel its biggest quality. We go more quantity than quality go for quality quantity will follow you in

00:52:11--> 00:52:31

that transaction by the end I came by thank Allah subhanaw taala for giving us this opportunity to meet with you and to share with the viewers. Some very important and useful insights of you may love this you and your family. I wish you all the best May Allah subhanaw taala grant to Jonathan for those

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

of you and us and all of our steadfast on the state path will be looking forward for further meetings in sha Allah will respect your

00:52:42--> 00:52:46

years when you say after Ramadan but insha Allah The meeting was

00:52:50--> 00:52:52

also in the month of Ramadan I cannot

00:52:56--> 00:52:58

reach Allah We will meet again.

00:52:59--> 00:53:07

Thank you so much. Please convey and the Salama for the viewers the restricted family. May Allah bless you all implement.

00:53:09--> 00:53:25

00:53:38--> 00:53:44

Oh,
