Challenges Facing Muslim Youth (4) - Sh Faisal

Challenges Facing Our Muslim Youth (4)

Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

1. Atheism

--Atheists like to ask questions which cause doubt in their faith

--shaytaan causes them to concoct questions

--an Ashari person's aim: to ask questions for you to lose your faith

--ie Allah is on the Arsh

--an Ashari: Where was Allah before he created the Arsh?

--this is to ridicule your aqeedah

--Prophet said to slave girl: Where is Allah?

--SLAVE GIRL: USED HER FINGER TO POINT TO SKY - FI SAMAIHI WAL ARDH

--Goofi Soofi/Barelvi believe Allah is everywhere

--they memorize Quran yet don’t believe in it

--they don’t believe in these verses:

The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established. (20:5)

Prophet: Quran is a hujjah for you or against you on Judgment Day

Hence why memorize it when you don’t believe in it

Do you feel secure that He who [holds authority] in the heaven would not cause the earth to swallow you and suddenly it would sway? (67:16)

Atheists also put questions to u for u to doubt existence of Allah

Atheist: How can a loving God put man in Hell?

Your response: Joseph Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and Pharaoh - these men killed millions of people:

--do you expect these people to be in same place as Prophets?

Paradise and Hellfire are Allah's justice

We can’t expect good people and evil people to be in same place:

--this would be injustice

Other argument put by Atheist:

--If there is a god He is not doing a good job because we have human suffering.

--this is worst case scenario: Human Suffering, Famine, Tsunamis, wars etc

--Human Sufferings: Man is cause of it 4:79

What comes to you of good is from Allah , but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself. (4:79)

-when good come it is from Allah, when bad comes, it’s your own doings

-ie proliferation of drugs lead to human suffering

-How can you blame Allah for that?

Whenever you refuse to pay Zakah, Allah withholds the rain

--wars: men fighting for political/economic / military power, how can you blame Allah?

--Sun shining, rain, oxygen, seasons: no discrepancies

--All the suffering is created by people themselves

Another argument put by Atheists: Child aged 7 years dies in hospital from cancer:

--suffered excruciating pain: why did God do this to her?

--Cancer: caused by radiation in atmosphere

--People have contaminated the atmosphere

--for example : The Chernobyl disaster

--a lot of factory foods are cancerous then they blame God

India: The Bopal Disaster: poisonous gas released in atmosphere

Man has contaminated the universe, leading to thousands of deaths, which are caused by cancer

Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned so He may let them taste part of [the consequence of] what they have done that perhaps they will return [to righteousness]. (30:41)

30:41 - corruption become widespread in land and sea because of evil by man

Allah told you that human sufferings ie mad cow, foot and mouth, cancer

-Man created these problems

-Allah gives them a taste of own evil handiworks so that they may return to path of Allah swt

-AIDS: proliferation of homosexuality

-Argument of human suffering is therefore flawed!!

-Shaikh saw a documentary where many babies born blind caused by STD in mothers

-How can we blame God for that?

-Documentary also showed some mothers smoke when pregnant causing deformities in children

-same deformities for drugs

-we cannot blame God for these human sufferings

All these sufferings are man’s own handiworks

-Atheists: If God is author of Bible, why does it contain such gibberish?

-We say: Who told you Bible is word of God??

-See in the Bible (Leviticus 11:6) it says a rabbit chewed its cud

-rabbits don’t chew their cud!

-they use this verse from Bible to prove their point

Allah is disgracing the Christians because their religion is falsehood

-Texas - David Kuraish said world would end and everyone in his cult died

-Jim Jones - Guyana, South America

-Jim Jones - Guyana (he was from the US) - he had s-x w/ the women in his congregation

-and he fathered many children; he poisoned his cult by forcing them to drink a poison

-The falsehood is evident, you don’t need to be old to see it

-teenagers aged 13 years are taking Shahadah

-they know Jesus is not God

-pride holds back some people from accepting the truth

Abu Jahl and Pharaoh

-saw the falsehood, pride held them back

Abu Sufyan was wise and accepted Islam

-better to embrace Islam and enjoy the glory

-Abu Sufyan said we shouldn’t be on the wrong side of History

-He was always concerned about what mark he left in history

-He spoke truth about Prophet when he was kaafir

-because he didn’t want to go down in history as liar

Consider Bush/Blair/Putin - Liars

-they don’t care how they are remembered in history

-they are concerned about wealth/power

-White woman in Europe - concerned about money

-she'll go to papers and sell her story of affairs with famous people - for money

-Her picture will be plastered in papers and she'll go into sordid details of the affair

-she disgraces the man involved

-they don’t care about honour - they are materialistic

-Putin planted bombs - to kill own people

-they worship money and youthfulness; poor and ugly people are hated

-Harold Shipman was given sympathy because old people are considered a burden

-he was a UK doctor who killed many of his elderly patients

-some people (prisoners) believed in euthanasia for fat people!

-any child born deformed should also be euthanized

-“euthanizing” means to put someone to death painlessly

-mad people should also be euthanized!

Hence 10/20% of population would be euthanized: they worship youth, technology, money, intellect

Problem of Peer Pressure

Some Muslim youth have inferiority complex, low self esteem

-inferiority complex:- their parents cannot speak English

-when they are in company of Kuffar, they cannot say no because they want to be accepted

-so they take drugs, drink alcohol: just to be 'accepted'

-they sleep around and contract STDs (STD : sexually transmitted disease)

Muslim men like to chase Kaafir women

-They should find a good Mature Muslim Woman

-One who fears Allah - has Taqwa

-Stay away from foolish women, they will make your kids foolish - Hadith

-Muslim Men who chase after Kaafir women - behaving like Jews

-Musa said to Jews - will you give up better for worse?

-they abandon Muslim woman for Kaafir Woman

"Would you exchange what is better for what is less? (2:61)

-they have problem with Al Walaa Wal Baraa

-Umar wrote to governor to divorce Christian Woman

-governor used Maida: 5 (Umar quoted Maida 51) in response

Women choose to remain Christians, no praying , no hijab, no fasting

-Kids prefer to be Christian like their mothers as they can do haraam

-the children become confused

-Only time allowed to marry Christian Woman, when no Muslim women

-Muslim men say Christian Girls are 'concubines' as defence

-fatwa passed by certain sheikh (unnamed) but this is a wrong fatwa

Allah says in Anfaal:67 - not right for Prophet to take captives until he has subdued the land

It is not for a prophet to have captives [of war] until he inflicts a massacre [upon Allah 's enemies] in the land. (8:67)

Hence that sheikh passed wrong fatwa; only take concubines when subdue the land

Muslims not in control of Judiciary or courthouses in London

-How can they say they are taking concubines???

-cannot take captives in Daar ul Harb - Only Islamic state

-Likewise cannot be Caliph when living behind enemy lines

-Abu Isa - in a wheelchair because British prisons are evil places

-Abu Isa claimed to be Caliph when living behind enemy lines

-British Prisons are not a holiday camps!!

-Any person with intellect cannot give bayah to Abu Isa as Caliph

-Abu Isa said he was the caliph and should be given bayah (loyalty)

[And they are] those who, if We give them authority in the land, establish prayer and give zakah and enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong. And to Allah belongs the outcome of [all] matters. (22:41)

In order to be Caliph - need to

1. Be Muslim

2. Be sane

3. Be free

4. Control land

Conditions to be Caliph

Those (Muslim rulers) who, if We give them power in the land, (they) order for Iqamat-as-Salat. [i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational Salat (prayers) (the males in mosques)], to pay the Zakat and they enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief polytheism and all that Islam has forbidden) [i.e. they make the Qur'an as the law of their country in all the spheres of life]. And with Allah rests the end of (all) matters (of creatures) [Muhsin Khan]

Muslim Woman called Mutasimah - the Ruler

-the Leader of Muslims - Mutasimah

-He lead army and fought Romans to take revenge for pulling hijab of Muslim Woman

-where was Abu Isa defending honour of Muslim Women in Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine

If you don’t use your aql - you are called a 'beast' by Allah

Verily! The worst of (moving) living creatures with Allah are the deaf and the dumb, those who understand not (i.e. the disbelievers). (8:22)

THE WORST PEOPLE

--the worst of people are those who do not think for themselves

--the Jammah of Abu Isa are Khawarijj

--you are not allowed to make takfir on Muslims who vote, before they bring the hujjah

--this is not allowed and it is a sign of the Khawarijj

--they make takfir on those who believe that Allah is everywhere : BEFORE the hujjah is established

--they have no mercy in their hearts for the Muslims

--you are not allowed to make takfir on a man who says Allah is everywhere

--until you bring him the hujjah

-- they make takfir of Muslims who send their children to kaafir schools :

--we agree the syllabus is evil in kaafir schools

--not every Muslim woman has the ability to home school..

--you cannot make takfir on her for sending her children to kaafir school

--there are thousands of Muslims who went to kaafir schools, who turn out to be good Muslims:

--the parents backed up their education with Islamic Education

--the Jammat al Muslimeen, complain Shaikh Faisal is too soft with his takfir

--peer pressure : why do you mix with the kuffar if you are a weak Muslim

--or suffering from low self esteem

--they will introduce you to alcohol, weed, and sex

--imagine a Muslim woman in the company of a kaafir man!!

--Muslims who are hypocrites will have no problem with raping a Muslim woman:

--they know that the Muslim woman will not tell their family

--as they will be asked why they were with the man alone

-- this brings your honour into question

--Muslims are not supposed to mix with kuffar

O you who have believed, do not take as intimates those other than yourselves, for they will not spare you [any] ruin. They wish you would have hardship. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater. We have certainly made clear to you the signs, if you will use reason. (3:118)

--the kuffar won't fail to try to corrupt us

O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand. (3:118)

--if you have a problem you go to your best friend: bataanah, (blanket; comforter )

--bataanah = Lebanese Arabic word for comforter

--you cannot take a Shia, Saudi Salafi as a bataanah. as they have made their own religion

--you can’t have a Qadiyanis as your (bosom) friend : they will complain to the mi5, fbi :

--when they know you love the mujahideen

--do not do haraam to please and appease the kuffar

--some come out of jahiliyiah with diseases, bad blood, heart problems, drug addictions

Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low (95:5)

"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Quran nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." (20:124)

--a life of mental depression

--the man will say "my Lord : why did you raise me up blind"

--Allah will say. you turned a blind eye to My Ayat : so We raised you up blind

--do not succumb to peer pressure

--A man belongs to the religion of his friend

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man follows the religion of his friend; so each one should consider whom he makes his friend. Book 41, Number 4815 : Sunan Abu Dawud}

Oh, woe to me! I wish I had not taken that one as a friend. (25:28)
