Challenges facing Our Muslim Youth (5)
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
Summary of Statement by Shaikh Faisal before the dars tonight:
“Authentic Tauheed” is a classroom, not a chatroom, so we discuss many topics here affecting the ummah: youth and adults.
Rape is one of those topics. When Shaikh said in dars yesterday that sisters should SCREAM if they are being raped or approached by a man for such, he was not blaming the sisters who were raped.
Many sisters PM’d Shaikh and the Admins about being raped, so he felt it was important to address the issue now. Even brothers wrote on behalf of their daughters and sisters who were raped.
--a girl is not safe in her home anymore from uncles, brothers, fathers, grandfathers
--alcohol turns people into a shaitan (Ibliss)
--a lot of raped sisters were reverts
--the kuffar’s books [the Bible] glorify incest
--when Shaikh was in South Africa, Jehovah Witness people came to the home he was in
--he gave them dawah by telling them that their own book, the Bible glorified incest
--see: Genesis 19:36
--we must discuss rape in here because it is a challenge
--so please scream out and say I WILL TELL MY FATHER
--Allah (subhan'watala) gave you a panic button: scream
**if anyone was offended by Shaikh’s discussion of rape, please accept his apology and know that he must discuss the challenges facing the ummah, as part of fiqh ul waqi [current events].
Allah knows best.
Challenges facing Our Muslim Youth:
1. EDUCATION SYSTEM
3. FREE WILL
--you're taught to be selfish and "do what you want to do as long as it makes you happy"
--secretary to John Kennedy wrote a book about her 'affair' w/ him
--Muslimahs would not do this because she doesn't want to disgrace her family
--Family and moral values are not taught in the west
--they worship money, technology and pleasures of the flesh
--they care about dunya only
STORY OF A MOTHER IN THE U.K.
--a mother snooped on her daughter (spied in her diary)
--she learned her daughter had an abortion at age 14
--the school she went to actually arranged the abortion
--the mother took the UK government to court to change the law so:
--parents are told about this abortion before it happens
--but the judge threw the case out, saying, some religions are too strict
--he felt the young girl should be able to decide for herself if she wants an abortion
--the judge thought there might be a pandemic of 'honor killing' by Muslim families
THE CONCEPT OF FREE WILL IS PROMOTED in the west
--The Rasool (peace be upon him) said: to be in accordance to what he brought us
--the westerners exaggerate the concept of free will
It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error. (33:36)
The Prophet said: “None of you shall become a true believer until I become dearer to him than his own son, father and all mankind.” [Agreed upon (i.e. Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, At Tirmidhi, An-Nasai and Ibn Majah)]
But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad ) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission. Nisa :65
OUR ATTITUDE SHOULD BE LIKE THE SAHABAHS: "we hear and we obey"
--the kuffar hope you lose your Islamic values
--they want your sons to drink alcohol and your daughters to "sleep around"
--MPs in the UK society complain that Muslims there can't integrate (alhumdulillah)
--there is a test called the PUB TEST:
--if you go to a pub and drink w/ kuffar, you've integrated into their kuffar society
--CRICKET is a game
--it's like baseball
--the Pakistanis w/ British passports, whom do their cheer for?
--England or Pakistan?
--if they cheer for England, they pass the test because their allegiance is to England
--when Gen. Musharaff visited Britain, they asked him on national TV who he cheered for?
--he was laughing and surprised by the question
--his answer, "to each his own"
The kuffar take al walaa wal baraa very seriously
--if you are in UK and have a Sikh or Paki name, they want you to integrate into UK society
--they want to call you a "loyalist"
MUSLIMS YOUTHS ARE BEING FORCED TO INTEGRATE INTO KUFFAR SOCIETY
--the kuffar want us to integrate into their society:
Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) till you follow their religion. Say: "Verily, the Guidance of Allah (i.e. Islamic Monotheism) that is the (only) Guidance And if you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) were to follow their (Jews and Christians) desires after what you have received of Knowledge (i.e. the Qur'an), then you would have against Allah neither any Wali (protector or guardian) nor any helper. 2:120
--the kuffar want to BAN our morals and ethics
--having an Islamic character makes them look bad!
--they are jealous of our creed and the Qur'an and our morals
--the kuffar burn the Qur'an because they are jealous because it has no mistakes
Many of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) wish that if they could turn you away as disbelievers after you have believed, out of envy from their ownselves, even, after the truth (that Muhammad Peace be upon him is Allah's Messenger) has become manifest unto them. 2:109
But forgive and overlook, till Allah (tala) brings His Command. Verily, Allah is Able to do all things.
--Muslims are so content they look younger than our age
--a kaafir can't have self contentment
But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'an 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
--they envy the ummah for our children because when they get old;
--the kuffar's kids put them in nursing homes
--Dr Harold Shipman was a doctor in UK who killed old people
--the UK thought he was wonderful to do this!!
--many wanted him out of prison to kill more to help the aging population
--they believed the deformed children or brain damaged should be euthanized (killed prematurely)
--perhaps they want 20% of people killed (they want perfect people in their kuffar society)
--morbid obesity qualifies to be euthanized
Shaikh Faisal told the inmates at Belmarsh Prison w/ him that he was writing a book about them!
--they said, "sure, but don't put my real name in it"
These criminals confessed many crimes to him that they "got away with"
--He had no choice but to become a CRIMINOLOGIST in prison
UK is a dangerous society
--men in prison were called "dogs" and they were proud of it
--they "slept w/ many women" so they thought the "dog" was a good title
--they were very indiscriminate
--if you're not locked up w/ these criminals, you don't realize how dangerous is their society
--Shaikh was locked up w/ kuffar 24/7
--they complained Shaikh was bullying them (they were 6' and 250 lbs)
--he asked them to go to masjid on Friday but Shaikh is 5'6" and they were 6' so he can't bully them
--Shaikh's philosophy: IF YOU WANT TO PLAY W/ ME YOU MUST PRAY W/ ME
--many took Shahadah and kept it a secret
--now they pray secretly in their cell; they didn't want the white man to take away their parole
--there is a witch-hunt in the UK against the ummah there
--prison is a great place to give dawah because they have no distractions
5. PEER PRESSURE
6. TOO MANY DIVERSIONS
--these divert youth away from their deen
--otherwise, we'd have more than 85 people in this room
SHAIKH IN SOUTH AFRICA
--one dars has 2000 and one had 500
--he wondered why there was a low turnout ... the Muslim Youth were at home watching TV sports!
7. FITNAH OF WICKED SCHOLARS
--they are being paid to preach a false version of Islam and take them away from real Islam
8. MATERIALS OF THE WICKED SCHOLARS
--they have dodgy books for the youth to read
--when a wicked scholar writes a book and he quotes Bukhari and Muslim:
--they are quoting right Hadith but WRONG INTERPRETATION OF IT (that is their catch)
--Muslim youth have no idea what is going on
--these scholars hold conferences to lull the youth back to sleep
--they call the mujahideen "terrorists" and insure the continuity of kufrdom
--Hamza Yusuf, Tariq Ramadan:
--Shaikh Nazim Haqqani of Cyprus
--Muslims who are evil in character like to join these groups because:
PEOPLE LIKE TO BE GIVEN FALSE HOPE
--they trust their attorneys who say, "I will beat the case for you"
--people find comfort in falsehood
--ex CHRISTIANITY: they say, "Jesus died for my sins so I can do what I want to"
--ex GAY CHURCHES all over America
--some medicine is bitter but we must drink it
--falsehood is like chocolate: nice to eat but can make you fat!
WICKED SCHOLARS: are called "donkeys" and "dogs"
--donkeys are unaware of what they are carrying on their back
--the dog will hold tongue out even if you take food away (it's always out)
The likeness of those who were entrusted with the (obligation of the) Taurat (Torah) (i.e. to obey its commandments and to practice its legal laws), but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is as the likeness of a donkey who carries huge burdens of books (but understands nothing from them).
How bad is the example (or the likeness) of people who deny the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah. And Allah guides not the people who are Zalimun (polytheists, wrong-doers, disbelievers, etc.). And recite (O Muhammad ) to them the story of him to whom We gave Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but he threw them away, so Shaitan (Satan) followed him up, and he became of those who went astray 7:175, 176
And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out Such is the description of the people who reject Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect 7:175, 176
IKWAAN AL-MUSLIMEEN [MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD]
--if a scholar speaks for the mujahideen, he is not wicked
--we can't pray behind a wicked scholar
--they can practice KUFR BIT TAGHOOT
--he's in bed w/ the taghoot and he believes in democracy
--and calls mujahideen "terrorist" and calls them "Khawarijj"
--they say there is Shariah in Saudi
--Kufr bit taghoot means to reject all false gods, all false ways of life
--kufr bit taghoot requires you not just to hate the taghoot in your heart, but
--put baraa physically between you and it with your actions and
--speak against it and reject it with your tongue.
--wicked scholars do not practice al walaa wal baraa
-- we don't believe in the trinity
When Ahmad Deedat debated Jimmy Swagart: he forced him to quit the word begotten
--Jimmy Swagart changed his word to “unique” son
-- Jimmy Swagart criticized polygamy; then he was caught with a prostitute
--we do not agree with inter-faith dialogue, unless you debate them to disgrace them
9. TOO MANY DEVIANT GROUPS
-- an 18 year old coming from Christianity and embracing Islam
--what masjid is he going to end up in the UK
-- he will become a Tablighi or Saudi Salafi (or Goofi Soofis)
-- they employ all the shaikhs with the wrong aqeedah!
--when the youth in UK go to 10 masjids, he hears 10 different messages
--some say democracy is shirk and some day it's like the Shura system
--some say Allah subhan'watala is on the Arsh, others say He is everywhere
What does the YOUTH believe? they become confused.com
--some of those masjids believe the Shariah and some say to dismantle it is a minor kufr
--some say it's ok to inform on Muslims
--masjids say this!!
--as many different masjids, that's how many aqeedah the youth are hearing
--some believe Muhammad (peace be upon him) is alive in the grave
--you are not allowed to be confused.com
--too many deviant groups taking them away from Quran and Sunnah
