Egyptians found from the fort right and

they said the Muslim sharpening their

teeth they're getting ready to eat us

right and it created such fear in these

people they just surrendered you know

that question there's Lama courses

offered a youth key and these are set

out to destroy the youth at school take

the cordless it's worth for Muslim

students who don't know much about the

religion to begin with yeah but on these

courses here yeah it's really dangerous

to take a university course on Islam

because because most of the people

teaching them are either wittingly or

unwittingly undermining Islam I mean

that's the truth you can't learn your

Dean from your enemy all right I mean

you can't it's stupid it's like it's

like going to a somebody that would love

to see you die for medical treatment


yeah and we the result of it is Salman

Rushdie that's what you get that's a

result of getting a degree in Islamic

history from Cambridge because that's

what he did and I think you might have

even generally wanted to find out about

his religion at one point in his life a

lot because he said that I've read some

interviews with him and he went through

a period where he wanted to rediscover

Islam so he decided to take courses at

Cambridge and the rest is history right

because all that crap that he came up

with this from medieval orientalist that

made it all up I mean thomas carlyle who

even though Muslims constantly quote him

in these books like heroes and hero

worship Thomas Carla and they always

take him out of context because he says

terrible things about the prophets a

licen but then he also said some really

nice things so they put all the nice

things that he says right and they don't

mention all that other stuff but one

thing he some scholar says is one of the

greatest intellectual crimes is the

crime of the Orientalist against Islam

because they made up all this stuff

about the prophets Eliza time and and

this is what this guy read so that's

unfortunate these people most of them

they say we're objective right the

university is an objective system right

well the fact that the vast majority of

professors in islamic studies happen to

be from a certain area of the world that

doesn't really like muslims very much is

kind of unusual objectivity right and

they definitely have political agendas a

lot of times in the classes that they

teach and and also a lot of their

arguments if you're not well grounded in

your Dean a lot of the arguments are

very well convincing you see if you

haven't really studied Islam and depth

they can do objectively right it's

called with arabs call putting the

poison in the honey right you see you

say what a wonderful religion islam is

and oh it created this great culture and

data data and by the way right and then

they'll bring in the poison

see and they do it very subtly so you

don't realize you it's like giving the

person a little bit the way the European

women used to kill their husbands as

they put a little bit of hair every day

in the food right and then they get

these balls of hair and the stomach and

eventually die right so it's you give

him a little bit at a time right and

then by the end of the course the person

is totally confused the way to change

that the first thing is that i'll give

you a good example in California there

was a young not so young but I'm

Pakistani man whose daughter went to

seventh grade and she brought home this

book that had a chapter on Islam and it

was all the problems of Bedouin camel

trader and blah blah all this rubbish

right fulani asunder and he got so angry

he started this letter writing campaign

and got all of these people to write

letters now though I'm sure there were

many Muslims that just read it and said

that's terrible you know and and then ya

know none of that's true but they don't

do anything about it see most Muslims if

there's fitna they become great letter

writers I've noticed that like in

communities whenever there's like

trouble mum you get these fuel that

become the biggest activist and where

the calling of the phone did you know it

so and so did involve habla and it just

gets them going right but things about

Dean and about your slaw how about

rectification and changing everybody's

an armchair Muslim right that's terrible

that's horrific and we should change

that but they don't get up out of the

armchair well this man did and because

of that because of his efforts the

California textbook now in seventh grade

has an excellent chapter on Islam I mean

he went to the very tops of the

educational board in California had

Muslim riders come in and they showed

them how it was all incorrect

information and they changed it you see

and that's what that person did people

have to monitor these classes they have

to monitor what's going on people that

know what they're talking about how to

be in there and put pressure you can put

pressure on these people and they should

not be allowed there's some woman

teaching islamic studies in california

was using

salman rushdie's book as the textbook

right and that's all based on the fact

that there are not Muslims with enough

via what's like their jealousy for this

Dean or their love of this Dean that

makes them go out and do things right so

that's that is a jihad it's also a dowel

and dalla is nothing other than jihad

there's no such thing as baba Baba Dawa

in books a fifth there's no chapter

called the chapter of dower there's a

chapter called Babel jihad and the first

section on it is Dawa so that's what

that's a jihad to go out and change what

these people are doing because there's a

lot of people out there very often I

mean the idea or so out of it is how

unbelievable you go all over California

in all the bookstores and and the book

may strong protections kill the doctor

to your book represent Islam and they're

really well publish and all where's that

money coming from the same with a behind

movement carry all funded and the and so

there's fun in there are Muslim don't

have enough people right how do i would

love with their religion to pull out

from their pocket and start doing

something about losing change here we

certainly have the number and we have

the intellectual capacity but there

needs to be people to get out actually

do things and change that and it can

happen so you know that's a starting

place making sure textbooks correctly

reflects the Islamic teaching and

checkbook like maxi

unacceptable anything I I mean I've seen

so many comparative religion book

they'll have the chapter on Buddhism

written by a Buddhist scholar I have the

chapter on Protestant written by

Protestants car and Catholicism I then

they come to the Islamic section is

written by you know some Christian or

Jewish writer that has a PhD in islamic

studies right that's what is objectivity

we're being objective if I'm Muslim

wrote it right it wouldn't be objective

would it right well why do you let the

Buddhist right about the Buddhism well

because it's Buddhism ok so anyway oh

the green one which one many Muslim

youth lead a double identity one at home

and another outside home which does not

confirm to Islamic teachings like the

that's the Clark Kent syndrome in inside

the home there mild-mannered Abdullah

and outside the home they're super facet

right so which does not conform to

Islamic teachings how would you address

this problem to bring the youth back to

Islam well okay

yeah I don't find it anyway oh yeah this

song cursor at U of T is set out to just

know this one's a different one oh yeah

that's right sorry I'm still now I'm

about 25,000 feet coming down okay yeah

that's what I owe Islam you said it's on

metaphorically is a house of God well

it's called battle Islam and that's the

traditional and battle salaam in the

Quran Allah calls yet a dollar cinema

lies the Dawa is to the house of peace

so it's it's not it's a Quranic term and

with certain mannerism is one is not

going to observe them then they should

get out is that not being extreme what

about people going through different

degrees of practicing okay I accept that

as well as a criticism criticisms are

always nice when they're put in this

nice way right I mean when it says you

stupid idiot what are you telling people

you're a fundamentalist fanatic I mean

that puts you off but when it's done in

this kind of nice polite way is that not

being extreme you just kind of naturally

tend to accept things like that which is

nice because that's the way criticism

should be nice so I accept that but I am

extreme so what's you got a problem with


um you know where I got that from actual

I go to the prison's right not as a

prisoner but as of like to teach people

about Islam right and to learn actually

because I do learn a lot there um and

and one of the things is Muslim prisoner

told me right because these guys most of

them have spent about ten years pumping

weights and their arms are kind of

bigger than both my thighs put together

and there's this picture of me with

these five guys around maybe they're all

like six foot five and I'm kind of in

the middle of this thing looking like a

worm or something so one of the things

they told me is that the reputation of

the Muslims is so good at solid ad

prison that when they have shutdowns and

things like that they actually exempt

Muslims from bi start becoming Muslims

to get the perks right but they be

dealing drugs on set yo Salaam alaikum

bro hugs and then they'd be deal right

they'd be selling the drugs right so

they were starting to get a bad

reputation from these guys so what they

told me they did this really great guy

was about six foot five and had arms as

big as my two thighs said that so I said

what would you do with them he said well

we just took him aside and let him know

that the house has rules and if you

don't want to abide by the rules then

get out of the house and that's what

they did right so they kind of

maintained at night and I like the idea

but it is a little extreme so I I do

believe that and I really mean this in

all sincerity particularly in this

country but really all over the Muslim

world we've had incidents really of

young Muslims like actually throwing

acid on women's legs in certain areas of

the world considering that like I'm

gonna bid my loaf and Nana moon car

right like enjoy I mean eyes

bend and this things have gotten totally

out of hand you know and I don't that is

not the methodology of the Prophet first

of all somebody said that you we Islam

does not allow for vigilantism there is

no visual on tourism in Islam you cannot

take the law into your own hand that is

why you cannot go and kill Salman

Rushdie you cannot a Muslim cannot go

out and shoot Salman Rushdie because we

have a system and the alarm it's not

folder if all of a sudden we just say

everybody take the law into your hand

we'll have people out there blowing

people's brains out you know because for

whatever reasons I mean I had somebody

tell me one I guess he learned hanafi

filk and I prayed without a hat on and

show me next time you come in this month

did you pray I'm gonna tear you up or do

this or that and I was like okay I'll

wear a hat next time right last time I

went to that mosque right so I I really

believe people are at different

evolutionary levels Muslim women that

are wearing hijab today five years ago

were not or two years ago or two days

ago so there is an evolution and we have

to be aware of that as well as Muslims

that we're praying some Muslims only

pray jumma last year and this year

they're praying all five prayers some

people are praying all their prayers at

the end of the day when they get home

from work you know so people are at

different stages in their spiritual

development and that is something that

we always have to be aware of and

concerned about right I mean there's the

almost method of the alarm which is off

with their heads and the Prophet SAW

lyceum tempered that down you can see

the transition of omagh you know I'll go

bonkers method that'll be lana was to

kind of be gentle and forgiving for

certain things and the prophets of night

was the most of people that made ease

for people i mean if you look at the man

who came and he said to the prophet

Elijah I'm had actor heck do you know

I've destroyed myself and he said what

happened he said I was with my wife

during the day in Ramadan so the

prophets also lies him said you have to

make Cafaro right to expiate

and he said what do i do and then he

said well you have to feed people right

and he said I don't have anything to

feed people with so the Prophet had

somebody go get dates from the base of

the mile and he gave the mandates and he

said feed the people at these date said

who do I feed he said the poor people he

said there's nobody poor than my family

he said then feeds your family and he

laughed and the point was is that the

man had made toba he was genuine in his

toba and so the prophet shall I Sam made

it easy for him because the point is not

to be harsh the point is to bring people

back to Allah if you see them coming

back to a lot don't push them out and

the Prophet didn't say to him what a

wretched man you are you did that get

out of here get out of my face that's

not the way of the prophet Elijah and a

lot of people unfortunately like that so

i agree with you i was just using an

extreme example because it upsets me you

know when I became Muslim the first

thing i did I read all these books right

about the Sahaba and all model on all

these things and then I went to I won't

name the country because it's not really

fair and I saw all these Muslims and I

was like I mean who are these people you

know what do they have to do with Islam

and with this teaching and to me they

you know one of the doors in the Quran

is or a banner that said you're under 15

attendant latina Cafaro message I'm

gonna fit in attended in a capital o our

Lord don't make us a fitna right for

those who disbelieve right and and that

means don't make us like in Bosnia and

Herzegovina now because those people

that are fighting them they're in big

trouble I mean they are they're in big

trouble what they're doing to those

people is a terrible thing but it also

has that you know don't let us be an

excuse for people not to become Muslim

which is what the Muslims are now I mean

people if you call people is on they say

Islam you mean like they have in the

Middle East right or in I was in

Pakistan or I was in Morocco or I was in

somewhere you know

so that's that just it's upsetting to

see that the Muslims that claim to be

Muslims and then they behave the way

they do and I do it sometimes too so

what you know someone somebody once said

that like making fun of people's bad

habit nice hot all women comet ison

yakumo gentlemen when Allah says be shoe

had that what oh and I'm come you

know bear witness even if it's against

yourselves right so it's a it's I mean

Muslims have to have in soft they have

to have justice and they have to have

that when they deal with people and when

they do it themselves and so you know

there's one man once said that when I

looked at people I cried out to God for

justice then when I looked at myself I

just cried out for mercy right so it's

easy to condemn everybody outside

yourself there's a beautiful hadith of

the prophet Elijah and he said manna

father had a Canasta home the one that

says the people are destroyed he's the

most destroyed of them because it's

kibriya it's like a arrogance you look

at other people and you say they're all

worthless good for nothing except me of

course and that's a real bad state to be

and there's a lot of Muslims fall into

that state oh go ahead miss me neither

but I did come sit on is this a trick



all right go ahead I'm ready just so you

know if you will be bad to hell and so

does everybody don't know will be good

to have
