Masjid Rahmania, Kuala Perlis, Malaysia

So with this without any further ado, we will take the first question from the breath please. Salam, aleikum. wa. I am Ibrahim. I am from Bangladesh. I am a teacher.
Now I am studying at uni map
microset. Question is, do you have any plan to unite all the Muslim scholars in the same platform? I think it's important because people follow the Muslim scholars. If Muslim scholars are united, then Muslims, General Muslims gradually invited
question that do I have plans to invite the Muslim scholars on one platform and
you may be aware that I come from Bombay. And in Bombay, we had five major peace conferences. Three new due to an English wave invited the 30 best English scholar the one platform from all over the world, America, Canada, UK, Somalia, Egypt, Sudan, different parts of the world, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, and it was the largest
Islamic conference organized
where we call of different people from all from different parts of the world, we are twice in English 2007 2009, and three times we had in English 2008 2010 and 2011.
And we had more than a million people over the 10 days.
The conference was so successful
that the enemies of Islam they could not digest it. So much so that the band The organization and happy that I'm here
and we are to do the Sunnah of the prophet and to hegira from India, I'm an Indian, but I hamdulillah it was the largest in terms of technology, in terms of people attending Alhamdulillah in in the terms of April organized, inshallah, if Allah wills and if Allah gives an opportunity for me to have such confidence in other parts of the world, inshallah will be a pleasure.
Thank you. Thank you very much. Can we have the next question, please?
Hi, good evening, and Salam Alaikum. My name is Sheldon, I'm actually from Kuala Lumpur. I like to ask a question
about this issue right now. I think you have been very aware in Malaysia.
Can you hear me?
And the audio technician? Please adjust the microphone. There's too much of patient. Can you reduce the bass and increase the treble please?
Yes, but the good news.
Is is better? better, but
can you increase eyes? The person on the audio panel? Can you increase the high frequency
and reduce the low frequency?
Hello, Jessica. Can you Is this better now? Come closer to the microphone. Yes. It's not your fault. It is the fault of the technician. Okay, so is it? It's better than before? Yes. It was.
Better now. Yes. Yeah, I am sure you've been aware in Malaysia right now that Muslims have been divided over this issue called the International Convention against the Elimination of Racial discrimination.
I think there's been a lot of news reports about it. I like to get your views. You know, since you spoke on the importance of unity. Is this an issue that Muslims should be divided over to the point whereby some of them want to take to the streets to protest against other Muslims who, who are okay with it? Thank you for the question. The What are my views regarding the Muslims gathering for some ICD waterway said they wanted my view better that I have not discussed with any of the people of Malaysia regarding this. Yes, I do read news in the newspaper of Malaysia. But tell you frankly, I don't trust the newspaper of Malaysia. Or what they write about me is only wrong. How can I trust
especially about the English newspapers of Malaysia.
I can tell you for sure what the write about me more than 50% is garbage. So when the writing about me a man of truth, wrong things. How can I trust what is the right? Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah chapter number 49 was number six. Whenever you get the information, you check it up before you pass on to the second person. As a Muslim, many people follow me. I cannot give
Comments on what the newspapers write
and media international media as a whole, not 100% majority they write for their own benefit in India the same thing.
Almost all the newspaper there are some newspapers which are honest, very few, you can count them on your fingertips. Most of the media, they write for the benefit that if they want to sell more, so they make a news No, no the major news all zadkiel nygh resurfaces in Perlis.
Oh he will undergo back oh he's banned in India I do this eating that and all
you know want to create fitrah
you asking me to comment on the newspaper Sorry, I cannot and neither have I discussed with anyone except what I read in the newspapers and I cannot trust so if I cannot trust I cannot come in. Otherwise surely pleasure to come in on that question.
Thank you very much.
Can we please have the next question from the sister please?
needs to speak English.
That is first places more importance on this.
Please hear me here.
So now understand your last question, sister. How do we avoid
racism racism, racism. This isn't
question about Sudoku. juraj, Chapter 14 and verse number 13. And does it talk about supremacy of Islam? I'll give the translation of that verse surah chapter 49 verse number 13 says yeah, you are natural in natural law from Sakhalin one savasana from Shambo Kaaba law, in knuckle movement, the lawyer kamina lollywood kabiri which means all humankind we have divided you into nations and tribes, so that you shall recognize each other not that you shall despise each other and the most honored in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the person was taqwa. This verse of the Quran doesn't talk about supremacy of Islam. It talks about that all human beings are equal in the sight
of Allah. It doesn't talk about supremacy of Islam, it talks all human being the law had divided them into nations and tribes. Otherwise, pseudo room chapter 30 verse 21, says, Allah has made you into different colors and different languages. So all this is so that you recognize each other not that we shall fight each other. That means according to this worse, sex is not the criteria for one human being to be superior to the other human being. While it is not the criteria for one human being to be superior one or the the color of the skin is not the criteria.
The age is not the criteria, the only criteria is
God consciousness. So you're talking about all human beings are equal, whether black, white, brown, yellow, whether rich, or the poor were the king were the Pauper. Whichever part to stay within America, whether Malaysia whether India, whether Pakistan, whichever party, all i equal, the only criteria that can make you superior is taqwa, God, consciousness piety,
about supremacy of Islam in other verses, but this was talking about taqwa
to only may is toccoa regarding a question, how can we solve this problem of racism in this multiracial society system? Islam is against racism. A Beloved Prophet masala Sallam said in his last several
100 100 with a sermon, he said that no Arab is superior to a non Arab, neither a non Arab superior to an Arab. No, no, no black is superior to a white, neither a white superior to a black. So in Islam, race doesn't make you superior. Whether you are American, whether you're English, whether you're Malay, whether you're Indian, all races in the sight of Allah is equal.
All dressed equal. This is Islam. And I believe that the Constitution in this country,
they believe the federal religion is a sir.
Yes, what you can do, you can help the people who are deprived to uplift them that is different. If people are deprived, if you feel this community is deprived, and I want to help them because they are deprived, that's a separate issue that you can do. But you cannot say I'm
superioris I'm an Arab, they're far more superior. I'm an Indian, they're far more superior. I'm a Malaysia far more superior. I mean, I'm an American. No.
In Islam, all i equal,
all human beings are equal. But it doesn't end there. It says that high East is taqwa.
And you follow the guidelines of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You cannot say all i equal and then you start doing things which are not correct. You can't go and rape someone say we are equal.
You cannot make prostitution common,
cannot make drug addiction. allowed, all with the guidelines laid by law that means human beings are equal, but you don't allow them to spoil the society. So the guideline for the society
is that notice Quran. This Quran is the last and final revelation of Allah subhanaw taala revealed to the whole of humanity. It is the future of our Constitution, the do's and don'ts. You don't have to have a contract to know what is good, what is bad, our Creator already gave it to us.
Only thing what we have to do they have studied and implemented. study this study the fear of the Prophet study the Hadith of the Prophet, and all the replies are the
Koran has the solution to the problems of humanity. So if you know that there is a problem in society, whether it be American society, whether UK society with the Indian society where the Malaysian society, with the Saudi society, check in with the Quran.
If you're following the rules of the Quran, then the problem will be fine.
If you grow against the teaching of the Quran, the problem will be that
this Quran has the solution to the problems of humanity. It is so easy. But if the Muslims have faith in Allah and Israel Soon, we will be top of the world today. We want to satisfy other people rather than satisfy our life.
Today we are more knowing what will the UN tell us?
What will this country think about me? No more bother about what will others think about me you're more bother about pleasing others than pleasing a little fool if you please the land is Rasool irrespective
you have problems in this world. Dr. Cara would be Jana.
But we should have that faith. Do we have that faith?
So if we have that faith, that Quran has the solution to the problems of humanity, Islam has the solution to the problems of humanity and study Islam and you see wherever Islam has been implemented in true form, you get results. And the best example is the time of the Prophet and the whole ferocity.
You know, the people, the non Muslim they invited the Khalifa tomar and others come and attack our place and remove our ruler for that we have a beloved doodle like you
and people say Islam was spread by the sword.
Now, you cannot give an example of a single Muslim country anywhere in the world. Sorry to say not a single Muslim country any of the words they can say is following Quran and Sunnah nine total some parts okay.
But overall No.
inshallah Allah, I ended met off by quoting a verse from the Quran from Surah Tauba chapter nine verse 33, sorry Fatah chapter 48 verse 20, and chapter 61, verse number nine, who will is the aerosol Sahaba Lucido, Allah de Nicola, that Allah and His messenger with guidance and the truth so that he will have all the other religions all the wisdom and enough is the day will come.
And there are various
it will come, when inshallah there will be peace and at least we will rule for seven years
the full world will have that proper peace etc.
We don't know when it will come
and if it comes when we are live,
and that's the reason we should strive to follow Quran and Sunnah. Whether other follows or not don't undermine what he's doing or why not that person doing at least you follow yourself at least I should see that I'm following Quran and Sunnah
the people always point fingers Oh, he's not doing that we're not doing that Muslim is not doing he's not doing
it leads let us follow. Imagine if all the 1000 people a 1000 start following 100% Alhamdulillah
The world will be a better place later on. For inshallah, we make it
we make it a target today, that inshallah all of us will try and follow as much as
Quran as we know, to the maximum possibility Yes or no? Yes, do we agree will follow the Quran and the Hadith? Please raise your hand
all of us Mashallah and we pray to Allah subhanaw taala me he gives us the hedaya and the guidance so that we stick to the Quran
can we now please have the question from the sister please.
My question is when they are carried out by that law program,
sometimes they tend to fall away but they are trying
to avoid this
question that there are some dub organization and they are trying to call people towards Allah towards Islam, but many a time they themselves are not following the plan. So, then how should we be able to get them closer to Allah.
Allah says in the Quran surah chapter 61 verse number two, please note those three which you do not practice.
is a requirement for a day that he should at least practice the thing which is preaching.
No one can say is 100% perfect, but at least the things he's preaching, you should practice and we see that Alhamdulillah many of the youngsters when they inspired
with di like for example, Sheikh Emma D does inspire 1000s of people including myself, when they get inspired them and be not very close to France for now. But the moment they start doing Java as they keep on getting knowledge, the Amal the deeds also keep on improving.
And when they read more of the Quran, they tell others it implements and I'm hamdulillah most of the time we find that the dive keep on coming closer to Islam, but I do agree with you there are times when die is the talk about Islam but
they themselves don't follow this happens when sister mainly when we start thinking that we are the one who are giving you they're
going to convert people It is Allah who's giving you that not that die, he starts singing okay now I will do a technique of doing Dawa my technique is the best when you start saying my my mind then the downfall Satan comes and the shaitan is more after those who are the eyes.
So then the guy starts thinking okay, no, I am great. So then you find that he says okay, the prophet said keeper we're not required to keep a beard you know? I did my research beard is not required.
We start using all the four Iron Man Imam Abu hanifa Imam Shafi mmm Malema Malik, all four of them said that we are different. Now where is the result of us coming that beard is not required.
Okay, even if it not read the Scala thing, keep it tomorrow as you come to notice for whatever you do.
This is the first one that is
the difference between fatwa and turquoise. That fatwa says something even if you're not sure the same thing, no one says that keeping a beta haram does any Muslim scholar since keeping a beard around?
Some secular people may say keeping in not for no one. So better keep it. So when you find when you do research and when there is difference of opinion. The fifth opinion followed that opinion which covers both. Suppose one person says we are different other says it is
no one who say keeping is wrong.
So when you're praying, praying German
and the more you keep on following the Prophet, the Messenger of Allah and Allah you find success coming.
If you see my background as a stammer
from childhood as a stammer, if you would have asked me What's my name, or My name is da da da da da da, da.
I could have dreamed of becoming the best doctor or best surgeon in the world. I couldn't have dreamt in my dreams in speaking in front of 25 people when we started doing
up the pathways and now we're speaking in front of 1000 people 100,000 1 million people.
It is not because I am good. It is has a min Firstly, it is because of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala hasn't been first syrupy.
Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter three verse 160. If Allah helps you not get overcome you, if Allah forsake you with that then who can help you. So let them believe us put the trust in Allah.
And when you find difficulties in your pathways, that is the time you mean guidance is Quran and Sadie so it's important I'm aware. I'm aware when I've been to the south, Southeast Asian countries, they do go away they may, they may break certain but we have to guide them
that we have to get them closer to the Quran and Sunnah. We have to see to it that our Salah is very particular our pillars are very good. Our attitude the way we dress, the way we talk. Are we following the guidelines of online is the more you follow Quran and Sunnah the more result will you get
and all this you cannot judge your da by number of people accepting 1 million people can therefore emigrate die I don't know. Hi pray to Allah that me accept my services.
A Beloved Prophet no masala Sallam said there is a man who will keep on doing the deeds of Jana.
Jana is only one feet away from him, man feet.
But before he dies, he does act of janome and he goes to general
then our beloved Prophet said there is a man who keeps on doing deeds of jahannam for life till one feet is still one feet away from Jana. Then before he dies, he does the acts of john and he goes to Jana, we pray to Allah subhana wa Taala me except our deeds Allah doesn't require me or you to make it in previous rubbish that we are the moment and I start thinking that he is the one who's doing all this that is the downfall it is hasn't been fun
even if you if you think you're going to follow the Quran, you won't you won't get results no problem. At least you
know, if I follow Quran you know people will say I'm backward and this and that. Let them tell you
know, people may call me Joker, I'm wearing trousers above the ankle.
difference of opinion. Some say it sooner, some safer. I don't want to get into the debate, some said is gonna come down to wear it below the ankle. I'm not gonna go into the difference.
But no one says varying above the bearing towers above the ankles. So one says, What do I do? I wait above the angle. I may look like a joker. But the same Joker goes and meet the kings of the world and the presidents and the Prime Minister of the world.
When Roscoe pool keeps his shoulders above the ankle, you want to follow it. Why not our beloved prophet vamos a la sala.
This is a thinking
I'm not debating whether it is further or not. Let's not go into the argument.
Remember the hubby says goodnight Kabira although I must say that without further problem, Let's not argue about that. But this is one is fatwa one is the one
fatwa okay. It is not it is likewise I don't
know scholar in the world will tell you that varying above is
normal. No one will tell you to move I'll either tell you it is sooner or defer. So you should wait. Who are you afraid of?
example, me I'm wearing a suit. wearing a suit is not haram wearing a tie not haram but my trousers above the ankle
and will look like a joker no problem.
So this is
why are you afraid of Will my beard hurt and even
people who convert hair is hurt anyone? This beard of mine?
With this food no one will call me a non Muslim beard and adapt has to be 100% if I don't have a beard, someone may think
why should I give that opportunity?
If the label shows intent where it so when you're doing Java irrespective whether you get result or not please result will not tell you whether or not
every day I print I do that May Allah forgive my sins and put me in gentlemen.
We have we have faith in Allah that he'll forgive. But I cannot say that because I am giving my children
main goal, our main purpose in life in our car is that is the boss.
And this can only be achieved by following a law and if
the awards you get in Java will not take you to Jannah.
Our main award should be going to Gen.
Allah seeing the face of Allah subhanaw taala answers the question system.
Can we have the next question from the brother place?
Assalamu alaikum tonight, this is like your name. My name is Russia.
I'm a government officer.
Talking about unity, the Muslim oma. Okay.
In terms of scholars in Asia, I believe most of us follow same scholars. But when it comes to political ideology, we fall apart.
Clearly sister, brother, can you say a bit slowly because the microphone is not very clear. Can you speak a bit loudly and slowly? Okay. All right.
Talking about scholars in Malaysia, most of us follow same scholars. But when it comes into political ideology, we fall apart into certain parties by capacities, how to unite them so that all of us will be the one party and our voice getting stronger in Parliament with a question that when when it comes to scholars, we we follow one scholar, but when it comes to political party, we follow different parties how to unite them. The only way you can unite is
on the basis of Quran and Sunnah.
You can unite the Muslims whether it is a politician, whether he's a businessman, whether it is a comedy Academy, whether he's a scientist, whether he's a doctor, whether either die, whether practicing,
only way you can unite This is a master key for an essay.
And if that person doesn't want to follow her and say honey, that means he may not be a good practicing Muslim.
Whether we win the seat or not. Whether we come to power or not all this is the test formula. This is a test formula. Our main aim should be to unite the Muslim Ummah, on the Quran and say Howdy. Some people may not be following the Quran, but for the political game, they may say they're practicing Muslim they may not be.
Some people are practicing Muslim, when they come to power, they show their life practicing because they want to become they want to continue with the power. Lead, not the politics of this world take you away from Gemini.
You are a very bad businessman.
If you are going to barter the seat of this world, for your seat in Gemini, you are a very bad businessman.
The seat in genda is much more valuable. So what we find that many times in politics, we are more bothered about maintaining a seat than maintaining the guidance of Allah in his arsenal.
In India, I know many politicians who are far away from the dean but because they will win because they show the Islamic they will prove them they've Islamic them in order to be Islamic.
There are some good Muslim who come to power to show themselves like you know what they do that they stand. sunbathing secular. They're good Muslims, before they came to power. They were practicing Muslim. Oh now because I've come to power if I wait until What will people say so that others will belong? They have a beard, they shave their beard. They were practicing before.
So let's not and Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter three was the morning at five.
Allah says kulu Nussenzweig kettle mozzarella.
Every soul shall have a taste of that the final recompense will be on the Day of Judgment.
And the person who saved from the Hellfire and enters Jana has achieved the objectives of this world, for this world is nothing but goods and chattels of deception. All this is a test for us.
Whether when I do business, am I doing business according the Quran?
When I'm doing my academics, am I going to Quran and Sunnah
when I'm doing my profession when I'm doing my job, am I honest or not?
So all this is Quran and Sunnah. So the only way you can unite the Muslim Ummah is on the Quran and Sunnah. Whether they come to it or not you at least beyond Quran and Sunnah.
Correct. What should we say whether you're able to do it or not? Do you stick to the Quran and Sunnah? If everyone goes away, you stick at least you will go to Geneva. If I stick at least I will go to gentlemen. agenda is very precious.
You cannot barter the agenda for anything in this world.
For any power in this world for any wealth, million dollar trillion dollar zillion dollar, you cannot bartering for the agenda. Our beloved prophet masala Sallam said, a believer lives in this world like a prison.
an unbeliever lived in this world like paradise.
So once a Jew approached a scholar, I think
and he told them that you are a judge. You also rich and poor, how come this is world is present for you and Jana for me. So he told him, if you come to know what will happen to you in Akira, because you're doing [???], you will go to janam this one will be gender for you.
And me if I follow the Quran and Sunnah and go to Jana, all these judges in the world is like a prison for me compared to
the pleasure in our Hara. So if you live like that, that this life is the test for the Hereafter, and we follow the Quran and Sunnah inshallah, peace will be with you. If you understand the concept of Islam, irrespective what the enemy will do to you, you will be peaceful. Because your agenda is in your heart, not in the dunya
Thank you. Can we have the next question please from the brother?
Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My name is Heidi. Heidi, I have a question. This is about when we are talking about unity. Okay, can you speak closer to the mind? Can you increase the volume please? The people are the audio
audio technician, can you get the volume please just breathe slowly. And
I saw my computer while it was mine.
When we talk about unity in Luma
from my point of view that Allah have been given me, I think one of the big aspects or the problem is and can you tell me the impact of our software or our role in Allah Jama now we no longer care or concern about it. We are is like a snake in our salt. Is that it How big is the impact of a soft in follow Gemma? That is my question Thank you very much.
I could not hear a question clearly but if I understood as repeated and said correct you will see that today when we stand for our Salah in the Jamaat our rules are not straight in correct that's the main question
is a beloved port masala solemn before he started the Salah. You always said the state in your own
clothes in your gaps and do not leave any opening for the city
and these are the main lobby with me said that when we stood for Salah our feet tight the feet of the combining our shoulder to shoulder the covenant companion so the right way to stand in Salah stand in a straight
straight row and your feet to shut the feet and the shoulder to shoulder and this is the right way but I know some of the people don't like
touching either the fitful talent nicely but this is what a prophet said that don't let if you leave any gap then the Satan will come in between if you agree find an agreement don't find a word
that there isn't the mom even today heard the mom thing before he said Monday but I couldn't understand he said the state in euros
closing the gaps
so this is the way of the son This is
the best way I should pay but please order this issue don't fight
Oh my neighbor is not footing properly. So then you start sticking and then your full solid disturb you keep on chasing him he goes on going farther away from you. Then you push and Salah has gone to the best of our ability try and touch no problem. But don't be obsessed with it.
If someone who's your neighbor, if he doesn't want to do it, you cannot abuse him.
Maybe when the satellite get so we can tell him nicely. If he agrees follow doesn't agree. No problem. Don't fight over of them. So the question
Thank you. Next question from the sisters. Is there any question there? No. Okay, we will move to this mic over here. Please sister,
non Muslim people and accuracy that the most like the biggest prejudice against Islam is about the equality between men and women.
sister has a question that
she's an apologist and the major difficulty she has to try and prove the equality of men and woman Islam and how to do it. For the complete answer, you can refer to my video cassette woman's ex Islam. I'll just give you a brief that in Islam, men and women are equal. But equality doesn't mean identical at the equal, but they are not identical.
Let me give an example, that if in a class, two students come out first student a and student B, and in the question paper, if you analyze the 10 questions, each carrying 10 marks
when you analyze both the students who come out first they get 80 out of 100? Student a, in question number one, get nine out of 10 shouldn't be gets eight out of 10. In question number two, student a gets eight out of 10 shouldn't be getting 10 out of 10. In the remaining question from three to 10 both get eight out of 10 if you add up, both get 80 out of 100. But in answer to question one student a superior than be
in answer to question two, shouldn't be superior to a or or both are equal. So in some aspects, the men have a degree of advantage in some aspect, the women have a degree of advantage, men and women they are made biologically different, they are made physically different, they are made psychologically different. So based on the biological makeup, the physiological makeup, the psychological makeup, the roles are different. Many times they are safe, sometimes they are different. I cannot say okay, fine, I am going to be equal to the woman and I want to give birth to a child
and made me biologically different. And urogynecologist No, no, I want to be equal to the woman to give birth to a child. And we have some lunatics who keep on saying such things. And then they want to change the gender. And you know what happened? Let's not go into that. So men and women are equal, but they are not identical. For example, if a robot enters my house, I will not tell. I believe in women's liberalization. I am not telling my wife to go and fight the robber.
Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter four was the metaphor that allows given most strength to the male as compared to the woman so I should go and fight.
When it comes to respecting the parents, our beloved Prophet said, when a man come in, approached him in say Buhari Ward number eight,
that who deserve the maximum love and companionship, the profits of the mother, the man after the dude the profits of the mother, the man not after the two, third them The Prophet said your mother, to force them in the man asked after they do the Prophet said your father. That means 75% of our love and companionship goes to the mother 25% goes to the
to the Father, that means mother gets the gold medal, she gets the silver medal, as well as the bronze medal father has to be satisfied with a male consolation prize.
So when it comes to love, respect companionship to the parents, the mother has a degree of advantage. When it comes to strength, the men have a degree of advantage. So based on the biological makeup, the psychological makeup, the physiological makeup, men and women have different roles, they are equal, but not identical. For the complete reply. You can refer to my video cassettes human rights in Islam, along with the question answer session. So based on each question they ask, inshallah you can give a logical reply and convince them hope that answers the question.
Thank you. Can we have the next question from the brother please?
My name is Morgan Eddie. I want to ask Can we unit the
asset the people that probably say that they're Muslim, but they
don't say hotties
then they do the wrong things, as you can see, and they probably invite people to say
they are Muslim that the window and say this
brother asked a question that there are some people who are Muslim but they don't accept this.
A Muslim cannot be a Muslim. If he doesn't accept it. You can call them pseudo Muslims. the right word is what? pseudo Muslim? Because a Muslim a beloved foreigner Salah Salaam said a Muslim is not a true believer until he loves Allah and His Messenger more than anything in this world.
Many people come and say that you know only following Kron m m Quran Yun, MLA Quran only follow her and asked him what do you offer Salah. How Mira can do brain surgery Salah
where it is mentioned in the Quran which was
So the Quran says how can we record too often for the Salah?
Sorry, I don't believe in Aziz, how can you follow Islam?
Zakat is compulsory, how many percent is occurred to give a dimension in the Quran
minimum mentioning the Hades so without Hadid, you cannot follow from Quran is a telegraphic message
how to something of Salah as mentioned but not all the details
give Zakat is mentioned how much to give not mentioned. So Quran is a telegraphic book the commentary is the Hadith.
So without the Hadith, you cannot follow Islam that varies and if you follow Quran, only following Quran also you have to follow Hadith because Quran says have you lucky Rasul all the references I gave
on repeat again, they branch up with reverse a different branch up with
this other performance study. So any size up before was 5925 over 69 so the manager profile was ended due for an upgrade for someone so then upgrade was number 24. And upgrade was number 26. I can go on for an upgrade was 4069 was 71. So the new jabra 2452. So a new 74 was 54.
On and on. Attila Rasul Allah and obey the messenger.
So Allah says obey Allah and obey the messenger. So how can you follow the Quran? How can you follow this part of the Koran?
This part of the Quran you can only follow if you follow the Hadith.
So that is the reason you cannot practice Islam unless you follow both the Quran and they say Howdy. I know there are so called pseudo Muslims. We'll call them pseudo Muslim but not actually Muslim.
Okay, thank you. Next question from the Brother, please.
Salaam Alaikum. My name is shamsudeen Muhammad Unum of students.
Thank you, doctor for your wonderful lecture.
Leadership at whatever level can play an important role towards uniting followers. So clearly, can you put the microphone on top? You're going down?
My question is,

at whatever level can play an important role towards your followers only heard the word leadership? Can you speak a bit slowly and more clearly, leadership can lead what am My question is that what lesson can lead us both at national community or among our spine safe in a particular in a particular leadership position? What lesson can we learn from the Great's leadership exhibited by our noble prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in terms of how he related to Sahara? Can you read the question short? You're saying so many sentences Okay, my question make it
short and clear.
My question that is that what lesson what good lesson can we learn from the What lesson can we can we learn? Can we learn Yes, from the leadership style from our noble prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam towards uniting Muslim Ummah Masha simple question he said What lesson can be learned from bomba Salam salam to unite the Muslim ummah. Brother, do you want to repeat the lecture again? I gave a full lecture.
what lessons can we learn from the prophet to unite the Muslim Ummah? I quoted several Hadith. I quoted more than 40 verses of the Quran more than about 20 Howdy, did you want to repeat again
in terms of talking in terms of relationship, how he led to Sahaba how he because at community level, we have leaders also we may find out was there any particular positions as leaders, so how can we relate within ourselves as a leader, how can you relate to your colleagues? How can you try to unite them or what how can you have a good relationship with them? That is my friend, we unite as a leader,
master key Quran and say, is there any better thing than the Quran and say his brother, do you know of anything? I said this in my lecture, I said that again, the best way to unite any Muslim of any profession whether
Be a doctor, whether be engineer whether it be a politician, whether it be a leader, whether it be a sweeper it is foreign and say who says that, not Dr. Zakir Naik, Allah says in Surah imraan chapter number three was the Mandarin three was the same will be humbling Elijah May Allah hold to the rope of Allah strong and better divided rope of allies, the Glorious Quran and the Hadith.
And Allah says, Allah and I told you that our beloved partner masala Salam said that the believers on to one and a merciful they are kind, they are generous, they are like one body if one part of the body is heard, the full body is in insomnia,
spent sleepless and even fever. So we can be united on the basis of Quran
as well as say Hadith and in their speciality. For example, if there are doctors, I will use the verses of the Quran talking about medicine so that he can move closer to Quran. If he is talking about leaders, then our code to him about about the people that praise the beloved partner masala Salah, if you know that lamartine lamartine he was a Frenchman who wrote the history of the earth. And he says that if you want to want to know the genius of a man, and if three criterias are there smallness of means greatness of purpose with astounding results is the three other criteria there is no human being who can come anywhere close to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon.
If smallness of mean greatness of purpose astonishing results. If these three are the criteria, no human being can come close to a masala Salah Michael is at faith in the 100 most influential human beings in the world. He puts Mama salasar number one, he said many may object many may challenge me but there is no person who has been so successful in religious and Security Affairs like the prophet of masala salam, George Bernard Shaw said that if you read the history of this man, more than being antichrist, he shouldn't be called as the savior of humanity. If you read Thomas Carlyle, he wrote in the book heroes and hero worship number one hero Prophet, masala Salah.
So these are the great people who the world says when they did their research, though they were non Muslims, they called masala Salam at the best leader at the best human being at the most influential person. Hope that answers the question. Thank you. Any question from the sisters?
Okay, we have the question for the brother please.
Salam Alaikum doctor, my name is pious clear.
My question is first, I understand with the agree to disagree,
but the reality is now that Muslims are divided say Muslims are divided and one group of Muslims are getting support from non Muslims. So, my question is, if the second group of Muslims can they get help also from the non Muslims, if a
the second group decides that they are underhanded not enough, not enough resource be that somehow some non Muslim says Same goes with the second part of the question. The first part I heard it is echoing too much. So please speak a bit slowly, it would be better
if the second group were to get help from the non Muslims if a
the second group had is seen as underhanded or not having enough resources be if this non Muslims have same goals see if the this is an issue where the second group sees the first group as deviance, for example, LGBT or smoking? Because we have Muslims who are for LGBT we have Muslims who are for smoking, but we also have non Muslims who are against LGBT and smoking. So How bad
was the question then? One group Muslim take help of the non Muslim can the second group think of the follow up deviated etc etc. Your judgment should be only on the basis of
Quran and Sunnah.
You judge the person on the basis of Quran Sunnah, whoever stole the Quran Sunnah you support. If there are two people, you choose the lesser of the evil. The two people one is more evil wanting less evil. Choose the lesser of the evils judge on the base of Quran and Sunnah. If one person is following, not 100% 80% Quran, the others falling 20% then choose the one who's following 80%
So, you have to make the decision based on your understanding, choose the one who is a lesser evil. Let us small mistake based prevent a big loss of dances question. Thank you. Next question from the brother please.
Salaam Alaikum This is my second question to you.
Now what is going on Syria and mn Muslim kings Muslim brothers? How could we stop the war and how to overcome the problem
with this question, what is going on in Yemen Muslims are killing young men how do you solve the problem to stop the war problem is an
easy solution. Problem is some people are doing the war for their personal benefit.
Some are doing it to sell the AMZ
Muslims are buying from non Muslims killing their own Muslim brother. The problem is easy. Stop the word
Muslim cuz Muslim, Muslim killing Muslims about the Muslim should stop the war. That is the solution is they don't want to stop the war because for their personal benefit, they will be punished on the Day of Judgment.
Now everyone cannot influence in stopping the world those who can influence influence those who can influence then Allah subhanaw taala. So the problem as I told you, in the beginning of my speech, that one Muslim was attacking the Muslim taking the help of the non Muslim because if they realize the teaching of Quran and Sunnah never will ever Muslim waged war against you as a Muslim? Never
unless the person is a monastic?
We are Muslims a brother into one another. We cannot, we may have our differences unless they absolutely have pseudo Muslim.
Otherwise, we Muslim should be united on the base of foreigners. And
thank you very much. Next question from the Sister, please.
For you, and the question is, are we as positive and experimental?
If you have the opportunity to further your studies,
and surveys, have another six more months. So we don't have to study right now, at the end of the month.
So no need to do anything.
if I understood your question correctly, that normally in the examination, we say that we will work. In the end, the six months remaining last month, we can study. So are you trying to do the Muslims can also enjoy life and work towards the end of the life is what a question is? Yes. So the Muslim can enjoy life now and work towards the end of the life? Correct.
My question is, which Muslim knows? How long will he live? I don't know whether lifted tomorrow or not? I don't know.
Sister, do you know how long will you live?
One year 10. Year 20 100. You know, even I don't know. Allah says in the Quran very clearly in Surah lukeman chapter number 31 was number 34. No one knows the main reasons a when will a person die?
What will the person earn what is in the womb of the mother? No one knows.
that the reason a beloved promise Allah Sallam said that to live that you say that. You live.
You live as though you're going to die today.
And be prepared even for a long time. If you know you're gonna die tomorrow, what do you do sister? hypothetically, if you come to nine tomorrow, what will you do?
No, no. Suppose you as a Muslim man to play zoo.
What will you do then? to work hard.
You will pray you will do the hard job correct. So every Muslim, he should be prepared that he may die today or tomorrow.
She is here to
do some stuff. So if you know if I think I'm going to get tomorrow what I'm going to do, I'm going to pray properly. I'm going to pray the sooner I'm going to pray to god What if I die?
And if I don't die again, tomorrow, I do the same thing.
If I don't do tomorrow, again, even if I don't die, am I losing?
If I don't die Will I lose? I suppose you think you're going to die after 10 years and you don't pay and you die Will you lose?
You lose what you lose then now. So my view is win win situation. Number one, when I'm praying, I get serenity. I get peace of mind. This money cannot buy
most of the billionaire they're not
People think money can buy peace it cannot. It can't buy happiness. So when I'm worshiping Allah, I find peace.
And believe me, if you believe in Allah, and the teachings you will not really bother everything is how I'm
a believer that when a prophet comes along the love and loss comes along vanilla,
this is the man
and more the difficulty more you're happy, inshallah Allah will give me
like today I'ma die, then you're mistaken taken everything, the property, the wealth, I think and I tell my wife that we should be happy. Imagine, suppose I call if I'm doing business and I lose my wealth, who's to blame me? He was quick comes and my house goes to benefit. If being a die if the enemies of Islam have taken over my property, what better benefit Can I get?
I'm very happy. Nothing better could have happened to my property than what the enemies of Islam have done very happy. More peace of mind. The thing that causing me trouble, they are fools. They don't know the agenda is my heart.
Then as in my heart
if they put me in jail Allmusic of Allah subhanaw taala if they ignore me for contemplation, if they execute me I'll be commercial. They cannot take the agenda which is in my heart.
So moment and a true believer he is always at peace.
If you know Islam, you will enjoy every day of your life. It is the fubu thing, okay, if I drink alcohol if I go to dogs I'll enjoy so let me enjoy now and maybe I will pray after 10 years full.
The kick they get in the drug and alcohol we get million times peace and serenity in our Salah.
As is free
there to pay money. There were health problems. When we pray Our health becomes better.
The serenity we get it is all if you heard my talk I've given a talk on a Quran the guidelines for creating happiness. All this is artificial happiness, images, the true happiness can you live in salah and the things some people like dancing, music
some people like listening to Islamic lectures reading the Quran, it is you who decide what is good and what is bad happiness is a state of mind.
You know like you like some people like Chinese food some people like Monday food some people like Indian food, food is food.
It is subjective. Similarly peace and happiness in depending upon your mind. Now you train your mind
if you train your mind
to get peace in a very happy with it.
But the prophet never said that you renounce the world
like that is Abdullah
may Allah be pleased with him. The Prophet said, I heard that you fast every day and I heard that you pray the full night. He said yes yes Allah. He said fast one day Don't fast the other day, pray part of the night see part of the night because your body has right over you your wife has a right to you and your guests have a right to you. So Islam doesn't believe in excessive
Islam doesn't mean renounce the world.
So if you think you're going to pray the full night and fast everyday go to Jenna that is again the son of the profit.
Profit number 230 first everyday profit didn't used to play the full net.
So there is limitations is maximum if you do above that it becomes excessive. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa, Chapter 4171 Allah says
do not come into existence your religion committing excesses of
the minimum maximum minimum Salah
minimum Salah sound interesting 20 minimum
then you can do your own to pay more. Okay 12 the cosmos perhaps Allah
then tahajjud and
the bestseller after the fight and Salah is the night Salah. come first, then would come 12 attacks.
Sunita makeda you won't read more. Okay forager Salatu Doha Mishra Salah on to Primo una de yarmulke de Taka
particular shall pray the full day
for minimum okay if I want to come to the mosque and pray that's the requirement if you come to the mosque and pray only five times okay you may require two hours a day if you want to promote argue that cetera and so near mocha, mocha, maybe three hours here mocha maybe for us.
Limit minimum four
We're gonna do
everything in Assam fasting you can fast everyday minimum fasting in the month of Ramadan 29 or 30 days minimum you want to fast mo the best after the fast of Ramadan is the fast
after that the faster for sure you want to get more or get the fast
tend to want to fast more shovel fast want to fast more, okay?
My days aim will be 13 1415 everyone want to fast more Monday and Monday and Thursday.
If you want more than the first of all dentists alarm every minute they finish beyond that you cannot do this is the limit. So everything in Islam minimum and maximum.
But you only know if you have knowledge if you read the Quran, Hadith.
So, if you think like those people who are fools that I will only study towards the end, we asked them when is the end we don't know. In this you tell that person for you your examination is only one failure, our examination every day.
The difference is the examination is one failure. So maybe you can fool the teacher and study only towards the examination. Our examination is every day every hour every minute
of them so the question system.
Next question from the brother But before that, how many more questions do we have?
Any more? Okay, we will take this as the last question then. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Just a moment.
Okay, thank you. Can I see number of hands how many of you want to ask question one our day two.
Okay, so we This will be the last three questions then. Okay, brother, please go. Hey. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
My name is Joel has raised from Penang. We no non Muslim is under the Islamic government known as capitalism mean. So my question is, if they are non Muslim, who are lawfully insulting Islam, hate Islam and plan to destroy Islam? Should we call them caffetteria rb D, which is this category should be killed by a government.
Easy stick tkp Herbie still relevant in this country reassures me The topic for today is the importance of unity in the Muslim ummah. So as a question regarding among the Muslim Ummah,
you have any questions on the Muslim Ummah itself?
Okay, so we will move forward to the next question. Okay, question from the Brother, please. Thank you very much brother.
My name is a man.
I'm a retired government servant.
This question just come to my mind, but unity in the Muslim ummah. I'm referring it to our wider and global scale.
Before that, I like to mention that
can you just move a little further from the mic? Yes, that's good. I would like to mention,
for more than 1000 years Muslim oma, well united under one nation and one leadership. One Nation is the dollar Islamia until 1924 1984 was the time was the year when the last Muslim oma came down. It was the
after 1920 for the Muslim community separated and divided into more than 4040 small and weak countries with more than under more than 40 leadership. So my question is, is it time for the Muslim community now to work towards
Building one nation, for example, from Morocco to Indonesia, and one leadership to get the real unity
question that the khilafah
the last khilafah, we had a colorful slum
of money in Turkey, which was by the enemies of Islam, they got together and had it abolished. And there were protests throughout the Muslim Ummah, in 19 1924. And you forgot to mention there was a pact. There was a pact by the Minister of Islam, which made with
that 400 years they cannot claim. And that 100 years is going to end in the next five years, I think in 1923, or 1924. So 2023 or 2024, after five years, this pact between the enemies of Islam and a third of Turkey is going to end.
And we have one bold, Muslim leader, the other one
who's fighting with the odds, and Alhamdulillah we pray to Allah that may Allah support him, and the full world is against him. They tried the coup to remove him. Allah helped him Alhamdulillah and he's fighting against the Western world, being in Europe, that there is any change from the Prime Ministership to presidential ship and even that and we leave it in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala we pray for him inshallah life the Muslim is again united in one manner, but the problem is, most of the Muslim countries would not want to be under one man. The problem with the Muslim if all the Muslims today 2 billion Muslims unite
under one, they will start thinking if he becomes the leader, where will my see to go?
So I don't think so. Unfortunately, the Muslim countries will agree. But if they agree,
and a common they can come and discuss come in not that anyone wants to take away your your power, even if they take away your power and give you Jenna in in return. That's a very good bargain. But the problem is how many Muslim politicians in the world they care for Jana? How many? I don't know.
You can count on your fingertips.
pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala that the enemies of Islam are joining together. And many of our Muslims are helping the enemies to attack the Muslims. What more do you want? What can you do?
This is the state our beloved prophet had predicted.
We at least number one, what you should do is see to it that you I should see that I myself, am I following the Quran? Allah, Allah will not question me on the khilafah when I'm not responsible for it.
First Allah will question me am I following or not? Yes, if I'm someone who can really make a difference Allah will question
but first I should see that am I doing my fries or not?
My Salah, my car, my phone? My my good deeds, am I honest or not? I should not be corrupt. I should not be dishonest. I should be loving all these things. If everyone takes care about that, inshallah the month become better. But the problem is we don't read the Quran and Sunnah with understanding. And anyone who follows Quran and Sunnah you say the person is backward
who is more forward than our beloved prophet who masala Salah I don't know any man who's more modern than the Beloved Prophet masala Salah.
We pray to Allah subhanaw taala me unite DOMA, whether they do it or not, whether the one does or not, but there are various hadith of a prophet talking about that.
The Times of
of Ashura, the signs of the minus signs, there are major signs minus signs, many of
the love and the messenger came
then inshallah inshallah Salaam will come. Then maybe the Salam will come. The Prophet again Bashara that those people who support manera salam, they'll be given half level agenda.
And then there'll be a fight, then there'll be a war, then again, Caliphate will be restated
in Charlottesville. Whether we live or not, we don't do it will come. What we should do presently, is we should see to it that we do our duty, what Allah and Allah told us, that is number one, your personal, then your society, then the higher level and inshallah and
Allah as long as we stick to Quran and Sunnah we keep on following it, we keep on propagating it inshallah, inshallah Allah doesn't require you and me or any politician to make if the previous Allah doesn't require Erdogan or anyone else other than Nicaragua to make it didn't prevent I mean the rubbish that we are
going to make his Deen prevail and it will happen the Quran has said that we only pray to Allah that me he makes us instrumental so that we can easily answer the question. Thank you very much. Okay, can we have the last and the final question from the sister please?
My name is
very interested and concerned with one of our breakfast is now
asking about the theory of change in the
world while performing.
Like our guest now it is hard for some people
So, can you explain what's the connection between the significance of strengthening the role and the unity of the woman and also the impact of not doing so? And why the other prophet SAW
the Muslim to do that. Thank you
for the question that what is the importance of reading the rose and reading the Muslim ummah. See, when we talk about unity people talk about theory Islam shows you practically
when we talk that we are against racism, we practically demonstrate it five times in our Salah
that will become together with a king or popper when we stand for Salah we stand in the same row shoulder to shoulder.
Khurana says he doesn't say that the king cannot stand the rich one stands first and the poor one stand we I know whoever comes early
is in the first room we were standing in the first row he gets most of our
and our beloved Prophet said do not let anyone get up from the seat for a person who comes late that is also prohibited.
So if a poor man comes first
he gets most of
the Prophet said the one in the first row get the maximum so then the second row then the third row the Prophet before starting this ally said he turned me around and said straighten your rules
the feature touch the feet and the shoulder to shoulder why so that if we have any racism the knees black am Britain is for that racism is removed. Shoulder to shoulder
feet two feet has done a small lobby visit me said that when we have our stood
our shoulders, the shoulders, our feet, the feet when they went in ruku if it wasn't straight, the Sabbath used to straighten
when you when you realize that the
that the stuff is not correct that time, but naturally when the in the ruku they can see the feet mistreated.
It is what is the importance the importance is so that if there is any ill feeling between your brothers that Ill feeling is removed
Do not leave any gap for the Satan meaning what when through that the love of the Brotherhood is increased. It's very important.
But again, if some people don't have knowledge and they don't want to do it, don't fight the one that will be
straightening is important. But if your neighbor who's a Muslim, he doesn't know the hudy he thinks it's not required and he runs away from you. You don't follow your Salah Do you understand? It's a praying Salah is more important
but if the person doesn't know doesn't want to come closer is running away from you. I know some people you go close the Quran What are you gonna do? You cannot change them the full Salah
you tried once happens good. So don't make it troublesome.
But according to say, yes, you should tread in the room. It should stand in the same row. It's important don't leave any gap. And that's what most of the time before starting the salasi This increases the breath out of that
