p>reading English as a primary language

this is their goal in fact my friend

professor honey Blankenship gave a talk

at in front of King Hassan in which he

reminded the Moroccans that you should

be ashamed of yourself a country of 30

million people an Arabic country with

one of the greatest scholastic

traditions in the Muslim world and yet

your universities are teaching in French

and we have iceland iceland a country of

250,000 people in which their

universities only teach in icelandic in

other words they take all of the

information from other cultures because

we don't know of any Icelandic right but

I mean what's Iceland doing up there

right no offense to any Icelandic people

but you know they're not producing great

amounts of literature and science and

things like this they're taking other

literature and they're putting it into

their language because they have is a

they're proud of their language they

don't want to be culturally dominated by

another language by a foreign language

alien to them and yet the Muslim world

with the exception of Syria right which

has its all other problems i mean the

Coulee apartment has an ad the exception

of Syria trying to attempt to use only

the Arabic language and end up doing

amount of disservice because they create

these ridiculous types of Terry right

like troubleshooter but Robin and


tsubame very interesting situation we

find ourselves in now the intelligence

they did a test about intelligence in in

Syria where they uh they want to see

which what its intelligence organization

was the most the best the Israelis the

Americans or the Syrians so that they

got three rabbits and they let them go

and then they told the Americans to go

get the rabbit the CIA so they came back

with the rabbit they were reading at its

rights and then the israelis came back

with the rabbit it was dead they'd

beaten it today and the Syrian secret

police came back with a donkey and they

said that's not a rabbit and they said

you know it is we got a confession so we

have a country now that's literally

dominating the world's intellectual

conduits we have to realize that the

media in America which is has massive

power now and I'll just give you one

example if you want to destroy a

people's o'clock all you have to do is

introduce television into their culture

that's all you have to do you don't need

to do anything else there was a rabbi in

London interviewed who was meeting a

Hasidic community in London and the BBC

man asked him why don't you have

television in your community because

they don't allow it he said because who

wants an open sewer in their living room

right I mean this is a Hasidic Jew an

Orthodox Jew that can work that out and

yet Muslims literally we haven't come to

this conclusion yet and people say well

brother there's benefit in it well Allah

says there's benefit in wine right

really if you look at the percentage of

benefit in television and look at the

massive harm that it's doing in the

world now there is a tradition of Satan

Ali that says that Savannah is a facade

for a full debate towards the end of

time the banner of corruption will fly

over every house right you

look at the satellite dish in the last

few years all over the Muslim world

seeing literally Bedouin in the Saharan

desert with a satellite dish outside of

their tent it's not funny at all it's

very devastating I there's no humor in

that whatsoever for me because it's

affecting their children it's affecting

how they see the world the Moroccans you

in the poorest parts of town satellite

dish on every single house go to Syria

satellite dish everywhere Egypt all over

the Muslim world in Arabia the Arabian

Peninsula the land of our prophet and

the Sahaba of the Aloha new land that

was purified with the blood of martyrs

and you see over all of these houses

they caught these right d Shack right

and this what is it going to these

cultures it's destroying them the

gerrymander I somebody who wrote a book

called in the absence of the sacred

documents that within five years

satellite television destroyed the Inuit

culture of northern Canada five years

destroyed their culture completely a

culture an oral tradition reverence of

older people of elders tribal gatherings

all of these things destroyed in five

years you see now in Arab countries

women wearing spandex right seriously

you I mean it's grotesque you don't even

see that in a lot of American cities

still and in Muslim Arab countries and

you wonder where's the Hara where is the

jealousy of the Muslims where is the

jealousy of the Muslim mail for their

own sisters dressed naked like the

Emperor's clothes in a deep sleep not

even aware of how asleep they are look

at our youth in this I in this just in

amongst us look at them with their heads

shaved wearing these ridiculous pants

down to their ankles right imitating the

dregs of this

what's what's happening we have to ask

ourselves really we talk about moral

excellence but look at what's happening

to our culture's look at what's

happening to our people and this is this

is plan this is exactly what these

people want to happen it is in the

general interest of the United States to

encourage the development of a world in

which the fault line separating nations

are bridged by shared interests and it

is in the economic and political

interest of the United States to ensure

that if the world is moving toward a

common language it be English that if

the world is moving towards common

telecommunication safety and quality

standards they be American that if the

world is becoming linked by television

radio and music the programming the

American and that if common values are

being developed they be values with

which Americans are comfortable this is

not a crazy man writing here this this

is what this is what the leaders of this

country read these are the papers they

read right this is policy and this is

what they're doing spreading corruption

in the land now interestingly enough

that he mentions here exporting the

American model the United States should

not hesitate to bravos values in an

effort to be polite or politique

American should not deny the fact that

of all the nations in the history of the

world there's is the most just the most

tolerant the most willing to constantly

reassess and improve itself and the best

model for the future at the same time we

should not fall under the spell of those

like Malaysia's mahathir bin mohamad and

it's interesting what's he doing in

there Malaysia right doctor come out

Subhan Allah who argue that there is an

Asian way of doing things oh there might

be something other than the American Way

my goodness anyway this is this what

we're dealing with right that's a

diversion I'm going to go through this

inshallah very quickly about morality we

have a great history of ethical

tradition a studying deep ethics based

on the Quran I mean it's interesting

this is a work I haven't looked at it

and I'm very impressed just by the

amount but it's interesting that the

Quran in 114 surahs has given the world

literally the greatest encyclopedia of

allah and not only did it give us the

greatest encyclopedia of a flock but it

gave us the greatest model and

embodiment of that allah and aisha of

the lonja jajaja la cara pero Jessa mad

kaha the brilliant young wife of our

beloved prophet who said can a haiku and

Quran Karim AHA needa his character was

the forearm if you want to know the

province of lice em if you want to

understand our prophet read the book of

allah because he was the Orang walking

he was the living embodiment of that

book and so much has been written but if

you look at imam of a hasson and my

worthy the great amount from Baghdad and

may allah help the people about that and

the people of air up in their time of

tribulation a people of sue mood and

nevada noble people and people of smooth

one American in the Christian Science

Monitor said that he could not believe

when he went about that last year that

he did not see prostitution and yet you

find it openly on the streets of the

Arab capitals of the world he did not

see it in airlock and he was expecting

to see if he'd been there in 1958 and

again in 66 and then he visited it last

year and he said he was amazed at the

dignity of those people despite the

incredible suffering that has been

going on in that country massive

suffering that that great Imam of her

husband and my worthy wrote a book

called a debate dunya with Dean the

other the courtesy of the dunya and the

Dean how to live in the world with Adam

and other was nothing other than a flop

it is about a holla in fact in the

Malaysian language I'm told that the

word for somebody without a flop is

called via Doug someone who has no Adam

and our Dean and like Sheikh Abdullah

said that the prophet Elijah have said

at Devon IVA sanity be my Lord has given

me a dub and what a perfect adapt how

perfect his add up for me and the Quran

is called madaba the place where Adam is

learned him a minimal if he says that

the atom of dunya and the ad above being

is based on certain principles the ad of

Athene is based on checking the passions

one must check one's passions and this

is done by distancing oneself from love

of the world when you look at the

disease of the Muslims are diseases not

backwardness under development none of

these intrepid dunya well Cara here tell

malt love of the world and dislike of

death this is the diagnosis if you want

diagnosis for all of our problems you

don't need to read books and books two

words with the provençal item get an one

booty to joanna and tell him i was given

the comprehensive word in two words he

told us the disease of this ummah until

the end of time cooper dunya love of

this world bokaro he attend most and

disliking death and this is where our

affliction comes from because we lose

our o'clock out of love of dunya this is

why people lose their o'clock the

prophet shall I said I'm said mushroom

and Manuel yeah the the love of life the

love of wealth and yeah a position

amongst people is not less

dangerous then too hungry wolves in the

midst of fat sheep so he says that you

have to have brought down at dunya

distance yourself from love of the world

and to understand that to fulfill the

desires of the self will destroy the

cell and then atefeh careful acara so

there he gives you the solution in the

hadith all he's doing is interpreting

the hadith of the Prophet dunya or Cara

Hilton mouth you have to get rid of

yoruba dunya and you have to understand

that your death eternal death is through

giving the self all of its desires and

to Rafael acara think about death

itself and then he says that the atom of

dunya sailaja dunya necessitates six

things there has to be Dean in order to

check the passions because Allah

sandwich at ascent is Dean to check the

passions of human being Allah does not

need worship he gave us worship in order

for us to come to know him through the

subjugation of ourselves because

knowledge of Allah cannot be obtained

except through the subjugation of the

south dr. the Quran joaquin masala in

you give them to skia of the self that

ruthless approvals are taught to purify

the self see ya judi bari como si on

fasting is in order to gain taqwa agile

base from n ferrata phenyl ha già panera

haha what a few supa what I did Oliphant

hedge whoever wants to go on Hajj and

makes it obligatory by intending it and

going on if then let him not speak of

low thing let him learn to guard the

tongue let him not do anything that is

unbecoming of a Muslim and let him not

argued during the hedge it's teaching us

how to live with people because has is

the greatest demonstration of all of the

people of many Adam coming together but

they're coming together can only be

on purification of the tongue on

purification of the limbs and on leaving

gida leaving argumentation leaving

argumentation the prophet Elijah ham

said an abdominal bait I guarantee a

house in general American mera whoever

leaves argumentation the prophets allah

IBM said ma almond by the Hooton can

elaine in luton jeddah know people ever

go astray after they had guidance except

they're given argumentation one of the

Imam said in arad allahu khayran fatah

hella who are woven Amin Dada da Dada

who shot Ron Donohue above LG doll that

the one who Allah wants good he opens up

for him the doors of action and the one

who Allah wants evil 4 then he opens up

the doors of argumentation then the Dean

is to purify the self and to purify the

society and then the soap on there has

to be a sultan who enforces peace and

justice but yet we're told in hadith in

for analyst hope honest I after athani

Maduro hazel dar al Quran that authority

and the Quran are going to split ways so

go with the Quran and don't go with the

soap on so if you're in an age in which

the salon is unjust and you must follow

the floor and authority Damaja luton

female Seattle hardip and then he said

there must be a rain of justice to

ensure mutual love and Submission where

there's justice there can be loved and

there can be submission to authority and

justice towards those who are less than

us who are lower than that justice to

earth our peers and justice to those who

are above us and then the reign of law

and order to create a sense of security

and then general economic well-being

this is a moment my will be this is 4th

century general economic well-being

there must be general economic

well-being in a culture and this is

achieved through pana through

contentment with what Allah sahana with

anna has given it this is how it is

achieved it's not achieved by everybody

the quote-unquote American Dream the

American Dream is the rest of the world

nightmare and that's the truth the only

reason the Americans can live the way

they're living is because they're

exploiting the rest of the world and if

we don't recognize that we're deluding

ourselves really we're living in a

delusional State how can you live like

this how can you consume sixty percent

of the world's produced energies and

produce good it's what Americans are

doing the food that they're eating

massive consumption one of the ships

from Mauritania when he came here he

couldn't believe the food consumed the

amount of food on the airplane he said

he was so shocked and I said airplane

they consider that little amount of food

is not enough and then he said the last

thing that animal would be out of the

line who gave was there has to be vast

hope there has to be a Rajah I'll leave

you have to have vast hope in two people

the people have to have hope for the

future one of the signs of the demise of

this country is that they're losing hope

in their future really they're losing

hope the US news today had this thing

and everybody's excited about how good

the economy is and immediately blowed it

had an article most Americans feel

insecure in their jobs but see they

don't educate they watch TV for 20 years

and they can't see that there's

something wrong with those ones right

above the other they won't occur to them

right the MTV generation I they can't

they can't think and the I Love Lucy

generation as well the whole lot of them

right it's not just MTV it started long

before that and then he put the stress

on Alpha and he says that the act of

enough's is based on aluminium mom there

has to be a high him the Muslims have to

raise their him up not have him that

than hija they have to have him up for a

thorough and not him before dunya him as

your concern and it's related to hum

which is anxiety even what hasn't said

the foundation of the human situation is

anxiety Tocqueville hum is the most

important concern to the human being to

push away anxiety

and this is very interesting because

there's a trade-off I I need to because

we have Asian things which people I'm

afraid Asia's I need to just to stop

mush on them then I'm going to each

other tomorrow time yeah so I'm Dana

upward there is no end they say one of

my shakes he told me that the adhan went

for the prayer and Medina and somebody

was telling a story and he got up to

leave and some other people stay and we

walked out he said I'll pass math and

math impulsive stories never reach a

middle point and I didn't understand it

when I first her eyes him what it meant

he said he said that one story leads to

another right then you never get to a

middle point you're on a journey you

know we're halfway there but when people

are telling stories one story leads to

another and that's what we have things

like prayer to remind us what we're

almost you know we're almost there to

our deaths were all we're all going to

die this mauritania who came when we

were in the airport we were on this

escalator moving along and he'd never

been on one before and he was just

looking at it and we're moving along and

we had the bags and everybody's sitting

there and then he looked at me he said

supanova he said this is exactly like

dunya he said you think you're standing

still but you're headed toward your


vos Ziro I mean that same thing taking a

prop from thing all these you know

people just thinking we're all standing

still and we're all heading towards our

death and what a journey so inshallah

ask Allah Subhan Allah to Anna to give

us to feel and give this omote opieop

and give the Malaysian stolfi up

inshallah right because they're plotting

against them they're bothered I mean the

fact they mentioned that in there don't

be diluted by these they're worried they

don't want a model of a Muslim country

in particular right they do not want a

model which people can say well the

Malaysians did it which means because he

Muslims are so negative now right

everybody just throws up their hands and

say it can't work but then if it

actually begins to you know a society

begins to actually achieve some things

in this world suddenly other other

societies are inspired by it and they

can say 10 well they can do it we can do

it and what we say if the set of could

do it there are example inshallah allah

give us tofique which is our common law

final settlement
