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

Hello, tonight is your night. My name is Rashid.

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

I'm a government officer

00:00:08--> 00:00:12

talking about unity in the Muslim ummah. Okay.

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

In terms of scholars in Asia, I believe most of us follow same scholars. But when it comes to political ideology, we fall apart Do

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

you clearly?

00:00:26--> 00:00:32

Can you say a bit slowly because the microphone is not very clear. Can you speak a bit loudly and slowly? Okay.

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

All right, better.

00:00:37--> 00:01:10

Talking about scholars in Malaysia, most of us follow same scholars. But when it comes into political ideology, we fall apart into certain parties. My question is how to unite them so that all of us will be the one party and our voice we're getting stronger in Parliament. But that's a good question that when when it comes to scholars, 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

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

on the basis of Quran and Sunnah.

00:01:15--> 00:01:27

You can unite the Muslims whether it is a politician, whether he is a businessman, whether it is a comedy, academically, whether he is a scientist, whether he is a doctor, whether he is or die, whether practicing,

00:01:28--> 00:01:38

only way you can unite this is a master key for Iran and say hello, and the person doesn't want to follow her on inside that may or may not be a good practicing Muslim.

00:01:40--> 00:02:01

Whether we win the seat or not. Whether we come to power or not all this is a test from Allah. This is a test from Allah. Ameen aim should be to unite the Muslim ummah, on the Quran and say Hadith. Some people may not be following the Quran, but for the political gain, they may say they're practicing Muslim, they may not be.

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

Some people are practicing Muslim, when they come to power, they show they're less practicing because they want to become they want to continue.

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

Let not the politics of this world take you away from China.

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

You are a very bad businessman.

00:02:17--> 00:02:23

If you're going to barter the seat of this world, for your seat in Jannah. You're a very bad businessman.

00:02:25--> 00:02:37

The seat in Jana 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 and users.

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

In India, I know many politician who are far away from the Dean but because they will win because they showed the Islamic they will prove themselves Islamic them in Islamic.

00:02:49--> 00:02:54

There are some good Muslim who come to power to show themselves secular what they do that they

00:02:55--> 00:03:10

start behaving secular. They're good Muslims, before they came to power. They were practicing Muslim. Oh now because I've come to power if I read the ITIL What will people say? So that others go below? They have a beard, they shave their beard. They were practicing before.

00:03:11--> 00:03:16

So let's not and Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter three was community five.

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

Allah says Kulu nothing's

00:03:21--> 00:03:28

worth it if I can do nothing psychother mod, every soul shall have a taste of it. The final recompense will be on the day of judgment.

00:03:29--> 00:03:42

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.

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

Whether when I do business, am I doing business according the Quran?

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

When I'm doing my academics, am I going to Quran and Sunnah

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

when I'm doing my profession when I'm doing my job, and my honest or not.

00:03:57--> 00:04:07

So all this is going on in Santa. 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 be on Quran and Sunnah.

00:04:09--> 00:04:28

Correct. What should we say whether you're able to do it or not you stick to the Quran and Sunnah. If everyone goes on when you stick at least you will go to Jana. If I stick at least I will go to Jana. Jana is very precious. You cannot barter the agenda for anything in this world.

00:04:30--> 00:04:42

For any power in this world for any wealth, million dollar trillion dollar zillion dollar, you cannot barter for the Janna. Our Beloved Prophet masala Salam said, a believer lived in this world like to prison.

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

an unbeliever lived in this world like paradise.

00:04:49--> 00:04:53

So once a Jew approached a scholar, I think I'm gonna tell you more.

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

And he told him that you are a judge. You also rich and poor how

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

Welcome, this world is present for you and Ghana for me. So he told him if you come to know what will happen to you in Accra, because you're doing shady, you will go to Ghana. This one will be Ghana for you.

00:05:13--> 00:05:21

And me if I followed the Quran and Sunnah and go to Jana, all these judges in the wealth is like a prison for me compared to

00:05:22--> 00:05:39

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

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

because your Jana is in your heart, not in the dunya of them. So the question
