Some of these are predominant among the young people and others among the adults
-whenever we live in an un-Islamic society, the challenges are numerous
-when the societies are darul Islam, there's less challenges


-it’s not their agenda to kill Muslims
-such as Jamaica, Bolivia, many South American countries

-there is no Shari’ah and it’s their agenda to kill Muslims
-Russia, China, Burma, India, UK, USA for example
-they even kill Muslims abroad (such as in Iraq where they claimed there were WMDs)
-they even imprison Muslims on "fake" charges

HYPOCRISY in our hearts is so strong that Shaikh has not done a halaqah on darul harb
-the more Islamic the society is, the less these challenges emerge

Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love you not, (Aali Imran 3:119)

-there is Shari’ah and a Muslim's 6 sacred things are safe-guarded

Those (Muslim rulers) who, if We give them power in the land, (they) order for Iqamat-as-Salah. [i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational Salah (prayers) (the males in mosques)], to pay the Zakāt and they enjoin Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islāmic Monotheismand all that Islām orders one to do), and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism and all that Islām 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). (Al-Hajj 22:41)

KAAFIR SOCIETIES cater to kufr and heresy
-Jim Jones, of Guyana (who killed over 900 of his followers)
-by giving them poisoned “Kool-Aid” to drink


1. Life
2. Lineage
3. Aql
4. Wealth
5. Deen
6. Knowledge

David Koresh also in the US
-from Waco, Texas (his compound was burned down by the US government)
-he impregnated many of the women in his church (some married and some minors)

Timothy McVeigh burned a courthouse in revenge for the Waco massacre
-because some of his friends were killed there

1. LIFE - it is sacred so when we take life, we save life

And there is (a saving of) life for you in Al-Qisās (the Law of Equality in punishment), O men of understanding, that you may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). (Al-Baqarah 2:179)

Abu Hurayra (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "Anyone who carries arms against us is not one of us. Anyone who cheats us is not one of us." [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith #182]

-his topic was Our 6 Sacred Things
-a man cried during the speech (he was in his 50s) and said he lost one of his sons
-a gun went off accidentally and the bullet went straight into his son's heart
-which is what Shaikh was saying, that we can't even take up weapons 'jokingly'

2. WEALTH - womanizing, taking drugs, drinking alcohol and gambling
-are the fastest ways to spend your money
-a husband even must give his wife money to go shopping or he loses his conjugal rights
-neither in jaahiliyyahnor in Islam, isthere free lunch
-only women w/ low self-esteem stay in marriages with evil husbands
-every kaafir is ungrateful to Allah 'tala

Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatīn (devils), and the Shaitān (Devil Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (Al-Isra 17:27)

-we can't misappropriate the property of our ummah
-such as borrowing money and not paying it back
-on Judgment Day, you'll have to pay it back

Abu Huraira narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: “The one who gets married with the intention not to pay dowry to his wife is a fornicator. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay back is a thief.” [Ibn Hibban in ‘al-Majruheen’ (2/261) No. 941]

Anas Ibn Malik (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) has never preached us without saying: "There is no faith for the one who has no amanah (trust) and no religion for the one who does not keep his promises." [Musnad Ahmad (3/135) No. 12406, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (9/387) No. 18851]

Those who are faithfully true to their Amanāt (all the duties which Allah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts etc.)[] and to their covenants; (Al-Mu'minun 23:8)

-we're not allowed to slander pious, believing women
-people in Muslim communities like to accuse of 'zina' especially in Pakistan
-but 4 people are required as witnesses as to the 'pen in the ink' [pen = man's private part]
-their testimonies need to be united
-one of the 7 major sins is to slander a pious believing woman

Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet (SAW), said, "Avoid the seven fatal sins." They said, "Messenger of Allah, what are they?" He said, "Associating with Allah, sorcery, killing a soul which Allah has forbidden, except by legal right, consuming usury, consuming the property of an orphan, fleeing on the day of battle and slandering unthinking chaste believing women." [al-Bukhari (2766) and Muslim (89)]

When Umar collected testimony from witnesses of adultery, their versions were not alike
-so they were punished as slanderers
-Abu Bakrah was one to be flogged for slandering
-any civilization where a WOMAN in head of state will FAIL

The kuffaar want izza (honour) but they can't have it

They (hypocrites) say: "If we return to Al-Madinah, indeed the more honourable ('Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul, the chief of hypocrites at Al Madinah) will expel therefrom the meaner (i.e. Allah’s Messenger SAW)." But honour, power and glory belong to Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and to the believers, but the hypocrites know not. (Al-Munafiqun 63:8)

-these apostate regimes thought they'd get izza from France or Israel
-the kuffaar hate themselves, this is why they commit suicide
-look at Japan and Europe (the highest suicide rates)

The Arab Spring :

Taariq bin Shihab reports that when Umar (RA) was travelling to Shaam, Abu Ubaydah bin Jarraah (RA) was accompanying him. When they arrived at a point where they had to wade across, Umar (RA) alighted from his camel, removed his leather socks and threw them over his shoulders. He then took hold of the reins of the camel and waded through. "O Ameerul Mu'mineen!" Abu Ubaydah (RA) said, "Are you doing that?! Do you also remove your leather socks, throw them over your shoulders, take hold of the reins of the camel and then wade through?! I would not like the people of that city (where we are headed) to see you like this." "O, Abu Ubaydah! Had anyone other than you made such a statement, I would have made him a lesson for the Ummah of Muhammad (SAW). We were once amongst the lowest of people, but Allaah gave us honour because of Islaam. As soon as we start to seek honour in avenues other than that in which Allaah has granted us honour, Allaah will then humiliate us." [Mustadrak al-Hakim (1/130) No. 207]

Saddam's Baathism was supposed to replace Islam

4. AQL (intellect)
-if you pronounce divorce on your wife, even in jest, it becomes valid

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "There are three matters in which seriousness is serious and joking is serious: marriage, divorce and taking her back (one's wife)." [Abu Dawood (Vol. 1, pg. 666) No. 2194; Sunan at-Tirmidhi (Vol. 3, pg. 490) No. 1184 and Sunan Ibn Majah (Vol. 3, pg. 197) No. 2039]

Umar said 3 divorces is counted as 3 divorces, and made the wife haram for the husband
-but ibn Abbas and Ali (r.a) said it was 1 divorce

Saddam Hussein killed 1000s of women and children, so how did he expect to survive?
-Bashar Assad is WORSE than Saddam because he has old kufr (Alouai)
-and the new kufr is Baathism
-he is more brutal than the other Arab leaders

Because our aql is sacred, we chop off the hands
-of those who smuggle drugs into the Islamic State
-not marijuana but heroin and cocaine
-alcohol is worse than marijuana but the kuffaar are so evil,
-they allow the selling of alcohol but not marijuana

A student of Shaikh smoked marijuana to ease her pain from her menses
-this type of pain comes from being a virgin; after having children, the pain subsides
-men smoke marijuana to develop an erection
-Shaikh counseled students who were addicted to marijuana
-and believes in mixing with the Muslims to learn their fiqhul waaqi
-marijuana is a type of medicine (for eye disease and pain of cancer)
-the laws of the kuffaar are satanic and upside down and around

In kuffaar countries, you can have 10 girlfriends but not more than 1 wife
-you can do zina but not Islamic marriage
-they slander Aisha to say she was married @ age 9 but this is not true
-but they allow animal brothels and same-gender sex
-they sleep around and use sex to destroy their enemies



Our hujjah for drug smugglers - 5:33

The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. (Al-Ma'idah 5:33)

-when you flog someone for zina, it is not painful but humiliating
-even a 12 year old child can handle this punishment
-but they are flogged after salatul jumm'ah so maybe 3000 people are watching this flogging

-your wife is not permitted to open the house door to strange men
-some women like to go to bed with their brother in law
-because they have mischief in their minds, or he smells the same as her husband

It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Beware of entering upon women.” A man from among the Ansar said: “O Messenger of Allah, what about the brother-in-law?” He said: “The brother-in-law is death.” [al-Bukhari (5232) and Muslim (2172)]

Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab: The Prophet said, "...Whenever a man is alone with a woman the Devil makes a third..." [Musnad Ahmad (1/26) No. 177, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/465) No. 2165, Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/197) No. 387, Sahih Ibn Hibban (12/399) No. 5586, Nasa'i in 'Sunan al-Kubra' (5/387) No. 9219]

-some have mischief in their mind

If you have a son who is at the age of common sense
-and you open the door to a strange man
-you didn't do anything wrong
-because your son or daughter was at the age of common sense
-if another Muslimah was in the home and she is not insane,
-you also didn't do anything wrong

Some men target married women because there are no strings attached
-such as she can't bother me because she is already married

Al-Miqdad ibn al-Aswad reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), asked his Companions about fornication and they said, "It is unlawful. Allah and His Messenger have made it unlawful." He said, "It is less serious for a man to fornicate with ten women than for him to fornicate with his neighbour's wife." [al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari, No. 103, Musnad Ahmad (6/8) No. 23905 and al-Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (20/256) No. 605]

In some societies, they won't rent an apartment to a bachelor
-they think married women will go there

Shaikh was in Swaziland for 3 months giving da’wah
-he rented an apartment and people were shocked he was able to rent one
-because he was unmarried at the time
-the owner of the home belonged to the masjid committee
-and he was told in that culture, married women want to go to the homes of single men

The worst among you are your bachelors!' (from Abu Ya'la and Tabarani.)

It was narrated that Sa’eed ibn Jubayr said: Ibn ‘Abbas said to me: “Have you gotten married?” I said: “No.” He said: “Get married, for the best of this ummah are the ones with the most wives.” [Sahih Bukhari (7/3) No. 5069]

Polygamy - if you have 3 wives, you prevent 3 women from committing zina

-only in the Islamic State is your deen safeguarded
-if we don't want milk to go bad, we put it in the refrigerator
-same for our deen, we put in the Islamic State
-when there is tamkeen in the land, they enforce Shari’ah

Those (Muslim rulers) who, if We give them power in the land, (they) order for Iqamat-as-Salah. [i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational Salah (prayers) (the males in mosques)], to pay the Zakāt and they enjoin Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism and all that Islām orders one to do),and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism and all that Islām 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). (Al-Hajj 22:41)
