;s a very old

argument and our scholars dealt with

this argument extensively but people

don't read their books anymore

and one of the simplistic views of some

of these modern Muslims that deny the

ology and the tradition of theology they

have no response to these new atheists

they have no response other than to say

ku fog but this is not enough because

Muslims have always dealt with these

things intellectually in a tradition

called the shubo hat which is refutation

above the amputations that are brought

out by the atheist so it's important for


to remember that that we were created to

adore allah subhana wa ta'ala to know

him through modify and this is through

the intellect

first and foremost and our intellect is

a spiritual concept the intellect is

immaterial it's not of this world and

this is why we don't know where we go

when we dream but we know that we leave

this place and we enter into another

realm because we're in a realm that's

immaterial so this is important for us

to remember that now as as our young

people are exposed to a lot of these

ideas we need to address these ideas in

sophisticated ways we if we don't have

trained intellects that can address

these problems metaphysically the second

thing that I wanted to talk about so in

terms of our tradition the human purpose

is cultivation of the earth which is

also true civilization not a pseudo

civilization not the civilization of

monetization to use a word that is very

popular in corporations of how we

monetize everything Muslims did not

monetize everything there were things

that Muslims actually did for altruistic

purposes now the dominant belief if you

believe in evolution you believe in The

Selfish Gene that everything a human

being does is for his selfish nature

that people are not altruistic this is

not true this is a lie

this is one of the lies that they teach

human beings have a dual nature we're in

the feasts and one manifests we are

precious but we're also and manifest we

relieve people of their troubles but

we're also manifest we're competitive by

nature all of this is taken from the

same root of the soul so the human saw

has monetha it has competition it has

ten feasts it has relieving the

sufferings of others and helping others

and it has Natasha

it has preciousness this is the human

nature Allah has made us a hybrid

creature we have three components we

have the Porsche hanya bow-wow ba-ba-ba

and the

Kalea this is what an imam al-ghazali

adds a fourth and he's unique in human

history as far as I can tell for

departing from that traditional model he

added the the the just the pawa add

video or balance that balance was a

necessary Faculty of the soul these

three faculties if you look at the

appetites human appetites the human

opposite appetite is insatiable the

prophet sallallaahu said i'm said that

lo can in low canon ribbony adam how low

can you leave me Adam what if if the son

of Adam had a valley of gold

Minda Abin la ba la dia na ha oh ha ha

bah Anakin Allahabad eonni he would want

to mountain to valleys of gold and he

said Lenya Lenya ma who in the Torah or

Allah - ah palpably the only thing that

will fulfill that will fill the mouth of

the son of Adam is the dust of his grave

that's what will fulfill so that

appetites are endless and that's why

people that pursue the appetites will

literally destroy themselves through

that pursuit and they will degrade

themselves because they will take their


their appetite as a God beside Allah and

it will take them to utter despair and

this happens many many people the second

aspect of the human being is the hubbub

ayah which is the irascible nature human

beings have an irascible nature this is

put there for a purpose just like the

appetites are put there to preserve us

we have an appetite for food and drink

which preserves our bodies and also for

sexuality which preserves our species

but these can be perverted and they can

go into perversions that lead to

overeating or sexual incontinence where

people begin to do things that are

harmful that cause diseases to be

brought upon themselves and then the

irascible nature this Omaha Libya which


where anger comes from this is there to

protect us from harm to ward off harm

and and and this is an important quality

and then he's given us a rationale the

alia and this should be the ruler this

should rule but what's happened on our

planet is the appetites and the anger

have ruled and this is what the Prophet

said dubba alaikum that Oman the the the

disease of civilizations will creep into

you pathetic woman has to do what

bah-bah-bah that Envy the appetite for

more and Baba hatred which comes out of

this other these will creep into you and

then he said well bah bah bah oh he'll

Hallie paw and hatred is a destructive

force and he said it it literally shaves

everything and he said I don't say that

it shaves hair it shaves the religion it

will remove your religion this hatred

and you can see this now in amongst

Muslims where this disease has entered

into their hearts they no longer have

mercy they no longer have compassion

they take innocent people and and chop

their heads off out of this anger and

then they say well this is what they do

it to us but they're not our teachers

they're not our teachers no matter what

they do to us we don't do what goes

against our Prophet SAW lies to them let

alone who can Adina Adele Musa don't be

like those who harmed Musa in other

words don't harm the Prophet Mohammed

Salim bhai besmirching his good name by

attributing deeds that are not from his

religion to his religion don't disperse

the besmirch the name of the prophet

muhammad's allah azza wa ma arsalnaka

illa rahmatan that al-amin he was sent

as a mercy to all the worlds he was sent

as a mercy he wasn't sent as a terror he

was sent as a mercy to all the world and

these people miss quote the Quran the

Prophet Allah said I'm said at the end

of time there would be young men he said

as man they're young in age soo Fahad

they have empty intellects lay at the

jail was an Amana Hannity row home a man

will not go past their throats and in a

rewire yappari owner quran well i at a

johanna your own they will read the

quran but it won't go beyond their

throats in other words they won't

understand it

Yakub lunamon heylia founded barrier

they will speak from the words of the

best of creation william raccoon a

minute islam come I am quorum young

salmon min Romney they will they will be

shut out of Islam just like an arrow is

shot from its bow and he said in a in a

sahih wire he said whoever can kill them

let him kill them because in killing

them is a reward from Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala this is the situation that we

find ourselves in everywhere there's

fittin the prophet said set hakuna death

was it a noon well for cotton but

telephone there will be events momentous

events there will be tribulations and

civil strife there will be sectarianism

there will be differences and he said

for in Kanaka darica eNOS Tabata and

tycoon and Mac toodle cot alpha fan if

you're able to be the one being killed

instead of the one killing them do that

in fitna what is the point what is the

mad and all this madness that's going on

human beings that have lived for

centuries together suddenly they're

being driven from their homes look at

all the people fleeing and you're lucky

in in in and we believe in luck houses

is is is is a blessing because how God

gives it to whom he pleases health is

something that I've got God gives to

some and deprives others you are very

fortunate in Malaysia because you have

been blessed with relative security

nothing is secure in this dunya I am

into Memphis Somalia so that you come at

all do you feel so secure that God won't

open the earth and swallow you up and we

know about sinkholes now which is a sign

of the end of time cuts for Mama's home

prophet said that there will be

sinkholes swallowing people up so you

shouldn't feel so secure but you have

relative security this is a blessing the

way you protect the blessing is

obedience if you're outside of obedience

you lose your blessings Malaysia has you

have the blessing of a uniformity of

faith I just came from Turkey it's one

of the few countries where you go into

messages and they pray the same way it's

a great blessing to have uniformity of

faith this is the way that they used to

be in North African countries when I

first went 30 years ago people prayed

the same way now that everybody prays

different ways because all these

different factions and ideologies have

come in and people read the Hadees

directly and they think they can derive

the Hadees just by oh I follow Quran and

Sunnah brother as if Imam Shafi didn't

follow the Quran and Sunnah did you go

and study 17 years did you go and study

17 years the Arabic language to follow

the Quran and Sunnah like Imam Shafi

Imam Shafi he went 17 years he was

amassing he was one of the greatest

scholars of the Arabic language that's

why he was able to write his great book

in a super thick because a solid step is

based on language it's based on

understanding the nuances of language

and what the BA is in in in in wiping

your head buta Lucy Coe what is that bad

what type of bat is that is it Tobiah

is it is it for zyada what is it this is

the debates of the Fatah ha

there are many Hadees you have to know

what Minh means there are many types of

men in the Quran Wynonna zero minute

operon that's mineral by an Allah super

Hanna the Prophet SAW Allah he sent him

said man sama Ramadan Watts palace in 10

min show on the Sherriff theory said

that's men from the gibreel

in other words six days of Shia Imam

Malik said no it's men and if tada it's

the it's the initiative men in other

words it means beginning and show al you

can do it in any other month before the

next Ramadan comes these are valid he

not bad but who knows these things

who studies ammonia ammonia Labib of

Ebony shaman masters that book before

they can talk about this in the hadith

the Prophet Sawa - in a hint in the sahi

collection Hin comes to the Prophet SAW

by him and says to the Prophet that Abu

Sufyan withholds money from me and the

Prophet said holy moly heap in my roof

take from his money in what's the the

norm of your people in other words for

your socio-economic class take the money

that you need and that means without his


the lunamon differ on that some said he

was because any hadith the Prophet is

acting as a body as a judge or he's

acting as a Mufti giving a legal

position or he's acting as a hakham as a

ruler or he's acting as a malenda just

giving or he's acting as NASA he's

giving wow these are determined through

a solid fill and the OU sunni scholars

differ about these things now every

ignoramus every time taken Abdullah

picks up the the Quran and picks up the

hadith and they say whom region region

they're men and were men we followed the

book and the Sunna as if malik didn't

follow the book and the Sunna Imam Shafi

said either the current ruler

mathematical measure if you mentioned

the anima mannix the star the prophet

predicted imam malik abu hanifa and Imam

Shah Suri and Anna rewire ammama but all

of them were mentioned by ishara

in in the Hadees literature or anima

agreed on these for the Sunni scholars

agreed on these four without synods

without counsels nothing our Quran is

one book we have no other book when you

heard this party reciting he learned the

seven Quran if you go to Morocco they

recite with rewrite wash and NASA if you

go to Libya they recite with Ilona and

NASA if you go to Iran they recite have

fun awesome if you go to Malaysia house

on awesome they're all sound rewire how

did they all agree on these because of

is net all of them came from the same

source no other religion has a unified

book no other religion the Christians

differ on the Bible the Jews differ on

their Bible

Buddhists differ on their their

scriptures the Hindus differ on their

scriptures no tradition accept Islam has

a unified scripture not only that we

recite it the same way if you're in

Malaysia you learn the Maharaja the roof

are the same as they are in America if I

teach Maharaja the roof the whole roof

will help are the same ones you teach

the same ones how do feel Joe far the

same ones

how do they listen how do all of them

are the same that hey Shyam it's the

same how is that possible

how because all of them came from the

same source no other religion has the

unity of this religion if you go to

Mecca and Medina and you go into the

Masjid at market of time you will have

an e bar be next to you you will have a

sheet in next to you you will have a

Hanafy a Mauna Kea Shafi you'll have as

a D all of these different groups and

yet they all pray three Rockets they

stand they go into ruku they exam back

up they go into sajda

some of them might move their finger

some of them might keep it flat some of

them might put their hands here some

might put it here some might put it here

but the prayer is the same no other

religion has that uniformity and there

are people that are coming into your

country that are starting to confuse

your people about your religion you have

a good solid foundation the people you

know people that spread Islam in this

country they knew Islam if they didn't

know his thumb you would have never

accepted Islam and the thing about a lot

of these modern people people flee from

them you look at all the people fleeing

from the cities in Iraq when they come

into town people run away and the law

says in the Quran Fatima Ahmed terminal

my heel into the home it's a mercy from

Allah that you were gentle with them

welcome to full on honey the LV Ellen

full boom in Hanukkah and if you were

harsh and hard-hearted they would have

fled from around you and this is a proof

that these people had nothing to do with

the way of the Prophet Muhammad's a lot

ISM nothing at all nothing whatsoever to

do because his way is a way that brings

people in in unites people it makes tell

Eve Allah super Hannah now I'm

them up in RT man left of a NAPA Newby

him what a canal AHA and lava bein okuru

be him Allah will unite the hearts if

you follow the Prophet fell yeah here in

ladino Haruna and Umrah he but woe unto

you if you go against his way if you go

against his way I'm to see boom fits in

atone they will be afflicted with a fits

in a horrible tribulation or either want

aleem or a painful chastisement and his

way is the way of the in the son of a

Sadiq not how people interpreted today

know the prophets Allah lightest him his

Aruna man were rightly guided

he said yea middle had an end mikuni -

rue du Loup whoo yeah whoo Nana - ah

ding once he hadn't moved it in with

that real Janine this religion is

carried in each generation by just and

upright people they will negate yen foo

now I know they will negate the

extremists and they will negate the

decontextualize errs the people that

take his religion out of context and

they will negate the the the

interpretations of the ignorant ones

those are the dual are the people have

scented the people that took from the

people that took from the people that

took back to the prophets Alliance and

this is our tradition and this is the

tradition that was in Malaysia and so

I'm warning you as people I am warning

you I am a Warner and I'm telling you

because the properties Bashir and nadir

and his people should be people of

Bashara and people of Nevada they should

give good news

but they should also warn people if you

allow these seditious teachings into

this country you will see factionalism

you will see sectarianism you will see

your houses divided you will see

religion become a source of fitna and

tribulation you are Shafi this is your

tradition your Activa is a sound a PITA

and you believe in two skia this is your

tradition hold to your tradition and

don't let people pervert your tradition

and all traditions need reassessing this

is the job of the scholars you have to

reassess things always there's TV you

need renovation things get in that maybe

should not be in that's true all that is

true but don't let that be an excuse to

throw the baby out with the bathwater no

don't let that be an excuse this is my

warning to you because you're the people

of Malaysia are good people generally

everybody has bad people and all of us

have some some bad qualities in us but

generally that I've been here three

times I'm amazed at the kindness of your

people I'm amazed at their

thoughtfulness I'm amazed at your add up

I'm amazed at your gentleness well I I'm

telling you the truth I'm and you still

have smiles on your face despite what's

happening in the world you hold on to

what you have hold on to the love in

your hearts this religion is about

loving each other in the medmont monona

aqua the the movements are brothers and

sisters were in solidarity and anyone

that wants to so division and strife be

reminded of what imam ali said aljahmeir

to massif wa Maluku Dora

Hiram men El Fattah man a Massif wa that

the group with its impurities is better

than the sect or sectarianism with its

purity did you hear that the group with

its impurities is better than

sectarianism with its purity so one to

those people that tell you that we're

following the the Panaji that were the

only people that are rightly guided all

these people are astray no

these are Muslims they say Lenehan Allah

Muhammad Rasul Allah they deserve

dignity they deserve their honor some of

them are astray at Hanukkah Ramadan

se-yeon hassanover ofrece yeah they mix

good and bad that's true

Allah says surah al kitab and ladina of

afina many budino we have given this

book to those we have chosen from our

people from our servants Furman who

amongst them very mundane FCE he's wrong

in himself he's still Mustafa Allah spa

Fajo he is still from the chosen men

whom Wadi Meninas woman who mocked us

hidden woman whom sat upon bare Herat be

is in Allah and amongst them are the out

strippers all of them are from this

Ummah and we should love all of them and

care about all of them and have rahman

our hearts for them and want to see them

make tawba and now in conclusion

towba if you look at this planet

everywhere you look we have strife

everywhere you look we're seeing

environmental degradation you're a fish

people you you historically Malaysia has

has lived on fish

we've lost 80 to 90 percent of the fish

in the oceans that people eat 80 to 90

percent the fish have been completely

depleted from the ocean there's us us

the foremost expert on jellyfish lives

nearby in new zealand nearby relative to

where i'm from

she did her PhD at UC berkeley and she

wrote a book called bloom about the

jellyfish that are taking over the ocean

the jellyfish are now taking over the

oceans jellyfish are spineless mindless

they have no brain and they have no

spinal course and and their consumers

they just eat plankton they're taking

over the ocean because this is the ocean

is metaphysically representative of

human consciousness and this is what's

happened to the human being we have

become spineless mindless consumers like

jellyfish we're like jellyfish and just


the jellyfish are taking over the oceans

the spineless mindless consumption is

taking over the ocean of consciousness

people now without thinking they consume

they don't think about future

generations all of this all of this

that's happening on the planet it can't

go on

you cannot keep producing the garbage

that you're producing we cannot keep

consuming at the levels we're consuming

if people consume at the level of the

average American around the globe we

will need three Earth's to supply all

the goods we represent five percent of

the population we consume over twenty

percent of the world's natural resources

we are mobile Jeanine and Allah says in

and mobile arena counter wanna shell

pain that those who are extravagant are

like brethren to the demons they're like

brethren to the demons we should be

turning away from this fortunately we

have people in the United States that

are speaking out against this

consciously we have people that are now

where I come from we have people that

are downsizing that are going to small

houses that are getting off the grid we

have people going back to simple farming

techniques because they realize this is

untenable it can't continue on but

they're not enough and this is why

you've here in Malaysia you have to

think all of this affects all of us

we're a global community the part and

the whole cannot be separate anymore and

those that are polluting in one place

the pollution is affecting others in

other places we have now radiation has

affected us we know that the Fukien what

happened in Japan it's affected us the

radiation is levels of increase there's

a massive the size of Texas there's a

garbage pit in the middle of the Pacific

Ocean between you and my country is a

massive garbage pit the size of Texas

this is what we're doing to the planet

Allah says the herald facade Oh Phil

Baroni well bury bamako Sabbath Eden s

the you the poem bag on the emiru

landowners your own and this is in Sura


in the in the chapter called the

Europeans that corruption has manifests

on the land and in the ocean because of

what humans are doing with their own

hands and a lot allows that to happen do

you the poem in order to let them taste

the harm of what they were doing that

perhaps they might make Toba that

perhaps they might turn to God we have

problems all over the planet we need a

global Toba we need people to turn back

to a loss of Hannah Montana we need

people to understand we cannot continue

we have children I have children I think

about my children's future I think about

the world that they're going to inherit

but not just my children I think about

children all over the world I travel all

over the world and I see education

levels in Africa are abysmal education

levels in Ferguson America in Missouri

are abysmal that there are there are

people that are neglected simply because

of the color of their skin there are

people that are neglected because they

don't have that socioeconomic status

these things are wrong and we need to

work as a community the Muslims should

be sure had that an S we should be the

witnesses unto humanity we should be the

ones showing the world

that's what allah subhanhu wa tada

quantum hydrometer Aquajet Vanessa you

are the best OMA that came out for

humanity not for yourselves

he didn't say quantum hair omitted

origin liam Fujiko he said the mask for

Humanity why because you enjoying what's

right you forbid what's wrong you

condemned vice when you see it and you

believe in allah subhanho wa tada this

is the function of our community we

should be condemning what's wrong we

should be encouraging what's right but

the prophets all the lights have warned

us he said man to me the Mirage Adina

come what Sufi could be man

well the Hara to Xena was sheriffin

Bunyan he said what are you he used mad

he didn't even say man who are you he

said what are you if your religion

becomes confused and you start shedding

blood and you your luxurious and you

manifest all your luxury and your

buildings become exceedingly tall what

are you man - are you fulfilling your

purpose this plan

NEADS global Tova there was a time in my

country in the United States where the

presidents used to tell people when they

had difficulties to fast they had days

of fasting that were actually national

days of fasting in the nineteenth

century where they told everybody to

fast and to ask God forgiveness this is

a United States of America it's no

longer a Christian country we don't even

know what it is I don't know what's

happened to my country all I noticed

when I was a kid

nobody had tattoos now everybody has

tattoos when I was a kid everybody got

married now people don't get married

other than homosexuals like nobody gets

married the only people that want to get

married are the people that used to not

want to get married

Annie Leibowitz brilliant writer from

New York Annie Leibovitz

was asked about that she's a lesbian she

was asked about she said when I was

young that's why you were a lesbian so

you didn't have to get married and she

said or you said you were a homosexual

just to get out of the army he said now

that's what everybody wants to do so I

don't know what's happened to my country

it's changed a lot and you're going to

get the same diseases in this country

you will get the same thing if you allow

these things in without thinking about

what you have your families will break

down you'll start building old folks

homes instead of taking care of your

parents you'll just put them in to let a

caretaker take care of them this is

already happening in some Muslim

countries this is what happens because

the Western civilization is a package

deal don't think you could just take

part of it Arnold Toynbee said it

doesn't work like that you get the whole

thing and that's why you you you're a

creative people you need to be more

creative really you need to be more

creative you need to think about

Malaysia being a model country you're

one of the best Muslim countries there

there's a few Muslim countries on this

earth that that I go to and I I think

and I'm do that there's there's some

Muslims that are actually normal and

they're funky

and Malaysia is one of them and may

Allah bless you and keep that will lion

may Allah bless you and keep that so

Imam and Noah we in his in his famous

book called really sorry mean he has an

introduction the first Bab is applause

that's the first chapter is sincerity we

need sincerity but the second chapter is

Toba we need a sincere Toba to belittle

aji Yemen you know turn all of you

together back to allah subhanaw taala

the Prophet said a stop few durable

convenience tough little ma Sabrina Mara

as forgiveness of your lord because I

asked forgiveness every day at least 70

times the prophet who was sinless he had

no sin and yet he's asking forgiveness

of our Lord we need to ask forgiveness

Allah the Prophet SAW I sent him told us

he gave all the diseases of the world in

his final address he said that the blood

of jahiliya is over there's no more

revenge in my religion and he's the

first blood he put down with Robbie


even at hadith then I've been a part of

his own family so if anybody was going

to take vengeance it would have been his

family he said no and then he said so

this jihad Lee hatred it has to end and

in our tradition we have the ability and

dr. Elahi who's one of your Muftis here

will confirm this the prophets all I

said I'm said that it was permitted for

a Muslim to give security to anybody he

can give security to people but these

people don't know the Sunnah of the

Prophet if we give security then they're

supposed to honor that and let those

people go they don't do that anymore

because they don't know the Sunnah this

woman who went on television on YouTube

to speak to these people that are

holding her son hostage she had a better

understanding of Islam as a non-muslim

than these people in in Iraq had she

said I studied your religion and your

religion says that one soul is not held

to account for what other Souls do

that's a zero a zero to Mesirow ultra

and she said my son's not responsible

for what American foreign policy does

and then she said and then I read that

your Prophet Muhammad he had amnesty and

he and he forgave people so I'm asking

for my son back she said I just want to

hug him

now that's one woman and I know that

Muslims have untold suffering I know

that if you look at what's happened to

the Iraqi Muslims at the hands of these

people it's worse than all of the

Christians but they only talk about the

Christians I'm aware of that I'm very

aware of that and it should all stop but

for me the most important thing in this

religion is the preservation of the

honor of our prophet sala de san em when

we harm each other that's what we do

amongst ourselves but when we harm

peoples from other religions and other

cultures it harms our religion it harms

our religion and that's why it's so

odious to me all of it is bad what the

Jews in Israel have done to the

Palestinians is is heinous and

condemnable it's heinous and condemnable

but what muslims who claim to be muslims

are doing to people in these places is

to me more heinous because when it

Israeli attacks a Muslim it doesn't

affect the religion of Islam but when

these people attack innocent people

it makes our prophet people think that

his religion was a cruel religion and I

want to end with a quote by Amir on the

father of Josiah one of the great

Muslims of the 19th century who died in

1883 he said when we think how few men

of real religion there are how small the

numbers of defenders and champions of

the truth when one sees ignorant persons

imagining that the principles of Islam

are hardness severity extravagance and

barbarity it is time to repeat these

words Sabra and Jamil Ilan Mazda and

beautiful patients and our help is with

God does our Kamala Harris in America
