0:55 Question: “How do we call non-believers other than including Ahl al-Kitab? Do we call them kuffar or we call them mushrikun?
Answer: “Allah (SWT) called the kuffar those people of Ahl al-Kitab, called them kuffar and they’re mushrikun as well because they make shirk with Allah (SWT). But they are the type of mushrikun, polytheists, that Allah (SWT) has given them special rulings.
There are a type of mushrikun that Allah (SWT) has given them special concessions and Allah (SWT) does whatever he wants. But of course, ikhwan, we have to have some good methodology. Amongst ourselves it’s OK to call them even najas [impure], they’re dirty: ‘الْمُشْرِكُونَ نَجَسٌ’ Verily the mushrikun are najas. Of course it’s not real najas like you can’t touch them, you can’t kiss your mother who is a kafir, you can’t shake the kuffar hand, it doesn’t mean that. But najas because of their shirk and kufr with Allah (SWT). So those things that Allah calls them we call them. We call them stinking kafir, dirty. But, of course, akhi, if that’s going to run them away from al-Islam, we don’t say that to them in front of their face.”
(2:59) “So the non-Muslims, part of being a non-Muslim is that they are liars, usually. Usually. In the Quran Allah (SWT) told us about all of those kuffar and their different categories. Firaun (Arabic) he said (Arabic) ‘I’m your Lord the most high’, there’s no lie bigger than that. The Yahood [Jews] and the Nasirah [Christians]. The Nasirah say their Isa is the ibn of Allah, the son of Allah. That’s their religion! It’s a religion of kadhib [lies]! The Yahood make too many lies. (Arabic) ‘We’re going to be in the hellfire for a few days, we are Allah’s chosen people’ (Arabic) kadhib! ‘We lost our country, so the world owes us, you have to give us somebody else’s country?’ I don’t find that strange. Kuffar, part of their religion is kadhib.”
“Dawah is one of the reasons that a person is allowed to live with the kuffar. But living with the kuffar is a major sin, ikhwan, and it closes the door for a lot of (?) in our lives. As we sit here ikhwan we have to hate it in our hearts, living with these kuffar. And whether you realise it or not, it is impacting upon us.
(Arabic) He said ‘I’m free of any Muslim who lives with the mushrikeen. Their fires cannot co-exist. If you live with them their fire is going to overtake your fire, your children’s fire.’ So there is a lot of evil with living here and some of us are just stuck. So if a person is looking for an excuse to be here, one of those excuses is dawah, if he’s really giving dawah to the haq and properly.”
“No one loves the kuffar. No one loves the kuffar, not a single person here from the Muslims loves the kuffar, whether those kuffar are from the UK or from the US. We love the people of Islam and we hate the people of kufr. We hate the kuffar.”
“I don’t believe them as they are kuffar, and lying is part of their religion. These kuffar, they do whatever they want to do.”
0:28 “And I have to say this, I was in Luton recently and the brothers from Hizb ut-Tahrir, who I don’t agree with their understanding of Islam and their way of establishing the Khilafah…in Luton those brothers from Hizb ut-Tahrir they go around late at night, they get a ladder, they get up on top of the billboards and they paint the naked ladies all black until all you see is her eyes and it’s like she has a jilbab on. Walahi (Arabic). When you see the picture of the lady laying down in the water, when I first came upon it I thought it was an advert for a woman in jilbab, black jilbab, niqab, everything. Then I realised that’s that famous poster of the lady laying in the water with the rocks on her back. So some of the brothers took from that sunnah and did the same thing here but without the artistry of the Luton people. Did the Muslims do that? Allah a’alam. And I’m not encouraging people to do that but that’s their freedom of speech. Muslims we should make a point about issues like this. Those kuffar should hear our opinion about issues like this.
I saw it with my own eyes, a programme of a non-Muslim bragging about him being married to a donkey, and he kissed the donkey and he bragged about the other things that he does with the donkey. And here comes the Muslim man and woman embarrassed about the opinions of those people (Arabic). Our women become embarrassed about wearing hijab from the opinions of those people.”
“Al-Islam goes over everything and nothing goes over Islam. The girl who becomes a Muslim today, her father’s a kafir? No brothers, no uncles who are Muslims? None of them can be the wali over that girl. We did not give the kuffar any way on top or over the believers.”
“Lastly, ikhwani, it is not permissible for the Muslim man to marry the non-Muslim woman. Nor is it permissible for the Muslim woman to marry the non-Muslim man under any circumstances.
To marry the Sikh, to marry the Hindu, to marry anyone who is an atheist is not permissible in the religion of al-Islam.
If you find, and you’re satisfied that those believing women who make hijra to you, if they are believing women, then do not return them back to the kuffar. Those women are not halal for those kuffar and those kuffar men are not halal for our women. So clearly the Muslim woman cannot marry a non-Muslim man and the Muslim man cannot marry the Mushrikeen.
From those examples of zina is the Muslim man or woman who agreed to go down to the register’s office and to get married with the kuffar, and they don’t get married with the Muslims. They only go down to the register’s office and they get married with the kuffar. This is zina. Even though that marriage is recognised in this country, that is zina in the religion of Islam. Allah told us in the Quran (Islamic quote) ‘Allah is not giving the kuffar a way over the Muslims’. He said (Arabic) in so many ayat of the Quran about the importance of (Arabic). He told us (Arabic) ‘Islam as a religion is uppermost’ and nothing else goes above Islam. The register’s office, or other than that, is not permissible (Arabic), the girl has to have a wali. (Arabic) And there has to be two just witnesses from amongst the Muslims, not from the kuffar.
(Arabic) Would you people choose to change what is worse, or what is better for what is worse? You leave the religion and take the way of those people. So it is not permissible for the Muslim to only get married with those kuffar. It’s not permissible. He has to get married with the Muslims first and if he doesn’t go to the kuffar it is acceptable.”
FEMALE NON-MUSLIM SLAVES
“The second type of zina is the zina in which the Muslim today is saying that these kuffar women are what our right hands possess, they’re from our right hand possessions. No doubt ikhwan the right hand possession, the milk al-yamin is from the religion but it is not being practiced today correctly, because jihad is gone, because the khilafah is gone, because al-Islam is not being practiced correctly in the earth, in the dunya. So the people who are practicing the milk al-yamin are not practicing it correctly. That’s in the Muslim world. What about here? It is a fact that the milk al-yamin should not be an issue that we have a problem with.
So because we are apologetic about our religion and what Allah has revealed Muslims want to deny the presence and the concept and the permissibility of the right hand possession – a man can have a concubine in al-Islam when Islam is being practiced correctly. And for every man that’s in this masjid right now, he can have, that one man, this many concubines in addition to his four wives. That’s the religion of al-Islam. If he had money it’s permissible for him to have this many concubines when Islam as practiced correctly. The people will say ‘Why are you mentioning that here? You’re embarrassing us.’ If you’re embarrassed then something’s wrong with you and your religion. That’s what Allah has revealed in his book.”
“The Prophet (SAW) has allowed in al-Islam, if a person has a slave it is permissible for that person who owns a slave to establish the hadd [punishment] on his slave. That’s permissible. And it happened during the time of Rasool Allah (SAW) on a number of occasions. So the permissibility of it is restricted. It is constricted, it is tight. He said (Arabic) in an authentic hadith, that’s been collected by Imam al-Bukhari and Muslim, (Arabic) ‘If one of your slave girls has committed zina, and her zina is apparent and proven, then flog her. And if she does it a second time then flog her. And if she does it a third time then sell her, even for the meagre price of a piece of rope. So he allowed that to happen.”
“Why are we apologising? Why are we afraid? ‘Uh oh! This is a hot topic. Let me get out of here. I don’t want my name on a list!’ as the people participate in a class about jihad. No, we don’t apologise about that, and we don’t apologise about four wives, and we don’t apologise about slavery.”
“I want to take this time out again to remind myself and to remind every single Muslim here, whether you have white in your beard, or whether you are a young person, especially the young ones from amongst us, we are (Arabic), the believer who is strong physically, not in his iman, it’s not talking about iman, he is physically strong, he is more beloved to Allah and better than the believer who is weak, out of shape, he’s not athletic, can’t move. Because the one who is strong has the ability to get out and work, to help the Ummah, to support the masjid. The who is strong has the ability to raise the flag of jihad and participate in the jihad. Weak people, they say ‘Oh it’s too hot. Oh it’s too far. Oh it’s too dangerous.’ There are those people today who have gone to the extremes as it relates to the jihad. One extreme is everything is jihad, and jihad is about only spilling blood, there’s no fiqh to it or no justice. And then the other extreme is the apologists who say there’s no jihad in al-Islam unless the Muslims are attacked, and that’s a lie. It’s a lie, similar to the lie if a man wants to get married to a second wife he has to get permission from the first wife. The first wife can’t have babies or there has to be a problem with her, all of those crazy ideas come as a result of weaknesses in the Muslims, physically and the way we think. Allah (SWT) mentioned in the Quran about the middle course of al-jihad, and it is from our deen (Arabic) ‘Fight them so there will be no fitnah and the religion will be for Allah.’ Fight them so there won’t be any fitna, shirk won’t run rampant on the earth. It’s your responsibility to stop that.
So is it permissible for any speaker, any Muslim to come today and to say there’s no jihad?…no one says that except someone who doesn’t know the religion or someone who is being paid by the kuffar.
The wajib prayer is better than the jihad, but the jihad is better than any nafl action. And shall I not tell you the peak of the matter? The peak of the matter is al-jihad in the cause of Allah Azza wa Jalla. So how is it, ikhwani, that, as Muslims, as Muslim men, wallahi, I hate to say it but it’s the truth, we cannot feel secure that we will support each other if there was a real jihad? Because we’re out of shape, and we love the dunya, and we can’t even make jihad over our own women not to watch Bollywood films.
Why are we apologising? Why are we afraid? ‘Uh oh! This is a hot topic. Let me get out of here. I don’t want my name on a list!’ as the people participate in a class about jihad. No, we don’t apologise about that, and we don’t apologise about four wives, and we don’t apologise about slavery. But we say this is the deen of the truth and it has knowledge behind it and wisdom behind it, not the way the sufaha are doing it around us. That’s what we say to the kuffar, that it’s not the way some of our brothers are showing it to be. But we also say to our Muslim brothers we have to embrace this concept that we have to make some preparations of al-jihad. One of our little kids told me in the class ‘Abu Usamah, you know I can eat four chapatis with my lunch.’ I said ‘Four chapatis?’ He said ‘Yes. My dad can eat eight.’ So instead of teaching the kid about being a man and about being rough and being tough, at the proper time, he’s bragging about how many chapatis his stomach can hold.
So why would the mother say ‘I don’t want my child to learn about jihad. I don’t want the father to teach him martial arts. I don’t want the father to teach him how to box. I don’t want that. I don’t want you teaching him, putting these foreign concepts in his head because if he goes to jihad he’ll die.’ If he dies, the very first person in the line for the benefit of his shadada is his mother, his teacher, his uncle. That’s the virtues of that, ikhwani.
So ikhwani, I say here today, as we say of all of our issues in this deen, we have to be balanced, we have to bring back the concept and the fikr of al-jihad in our homes. I’m gonna take my son to the masjid this morning, the wife says ‘No, not today it’s the weekend’…We have to give them training for jihad. That’s a word we have to start using. But how? We have to use it with knowledge. We have to use it with the haq.
So we want to stay away from the two extremes. The extreme of everything is jihad. And it’s not. Jihad is the most important thing. And it’s not. And the other extreme of, and this is the majority, the other extreme is there’s no jihad, the only jihad is when the Muslims are being threatened and we go out to save ourselves – that’s an extreme as well. Everyone in this place, in this masjid, to some degree and to some level, we have to make an effort to prepare ourselves for the jihad of al-Islam, the real jihad of al-Islam.
I don’t believe in blowing people up but if they arrest you for saying, I’m not bending the rules for the religion, there is jihad in Islam but it has a certain way. Getting arrested for that is a little more easier because that’s our deen. So when we come to the chapter…we have to jump over the chapter on jihad out of fear. No, this is our religion and prepare yourselves, because the time is going to come, ikwhani, the time is going to come when you are going to have to put up. So prepare yourselves. As it stands right now we’re not ready. So we’re going to stop here and we’re going to encourage all of you brothers to join a gym, watch what you eat, start exercising, stop watching TV and those shows that are only designed to make people stupid.
So join a gym, ikhwani. You older men from amongst us, the elders, we have to start to become more conscious about what we’re eating, how we’re resting, and we want to prepare ourselves for the real jihad, the jihad of the Quran and the Sunnah, when the time comes. As it relates to jihad, no one in the United Kingdom has the authority to claim this is jihad or that’s jihad. Jihad is determined by the scholars of al-Islam. And when they determine it, and they claim it, then we don’t care what these kuffar have to say about that. We don’t care what they have to say about it.”
“Verily Allah is going to bring a group of people that he loves and they love him, these people will who will be soft and kind to the believers and they will be rough and tough against the kufaar, they will fight in the cause of Allah.”
“The World Health Organisation they said ‘Female Genital Mutilation is any tampering with the genitalia of the girl, any tampering with the genitalia.’ There are three types, the extreme one that Muslims do in East Africa, and then the one that’s a little lesser than that, and then the one that is the sunnah that the prophet allowed – it goes against what the World Health Organisation said. Any tampering is not acceptable with the World Health Organisation and if you do that sunnah in the UK you are breaking the law and you can go to jail. The point that I want to make about the piercing is that the kuffar they attack the Muslims for the sunnah, I’m not talking about the second and the third group, we are against that, the deen is against that. But the sunnah where a little bit is done, …didn’t bring anything that is going to harm the people, and you don’t have to do it but the point is the kuffar they attack our religion and they describe our religion as being barbaric for having this particular sunnah there. But then, according to their own definition, when the girl puts a piercing in that area, according to them that’s Female Genital Mutilation but they don’t have anything to say about it. So I’m mentioning this and I’m bringing it to your attention, connecting it to the lecture that we gave today about your identity. If you know who Allah is you know who you are, you know yourself. And part of knowing yourself and knowing your identity Muslims, especially you young people – don’t apologise to people for anything about our religion.”
“Recently I went to Leicester. I gave a talk about FGM, Female Genital Mutilation, something that Muslims do and non-Muslims do as well where they oppress the women, the culture of jahiliyya. The majority of the occupants at the lecture at Leicester University, most of them were kuffar, although the Muslims needed to hear the message. But the Muslims who were there, when we began to talk about us, from the Islamic perspective, that there is a type of circumcision that is from Islam, but the second type and the third type that Muslims and people do is haram and the Nabi said you shouldn’t do it, anyway do yo know who became most upset with me? In the discussion it was the Muslim women who were upset. It was the Muslim women, when it was time for the Q and A session, who were attacking the Sunnah.”
0:42 “But even greater than that is (Arabic) the zina of homosexuality and the zina of lesbianism. The Prophet (SAW) said (Arabic) ‘Kill the one who does it and the one who it’s being done to.’ (Arabic) Kill the one who was on top and the one who was on the bottom whether it’s a man or a woman. And this is going to come, inshallah, in Kitab al-Kaba’ir – (Arabic) homosexuality, and how the companions looked at it, and how they used to punish them, and the severity and the seriousness of it, it’s from the the worst types of zina.”
“You go outside of our masjid on Green Lane, you make a right, on the corner of Green Lane and Coventry Road the non-Muslims put up there a big poster giving dawah to lesbianism, only a few metres away from our masjid…Muslims, we should make a point about issues like this. Those kuffar should hear our opinion about issues like this. We should have enough organisation, enough leadership to let those people know this is not tolerated in our community. Why by the masjid? They don’t do it by the church. So we expect from the Muslim leadership to have a stance and to make positions, let those people know.”
“We don’t judge by democracy. Well, here’s a problem we have right here today. Since we’re living in the West, since we’re living in America, we have to judge with democracy. As I mentioned to you brothers in the last two weeks, they have given the people in America who do the actions of the people of Lut, they have given them unprecedented rights. Now, now the child has the right and the school has the right to teach what they call ‘alternate’ education where you teach alternate lifestyles in the school system so that your child, if he goes to the public school, can be exposed and introduced to two lesbians. It used to be that on the books if a person got caught doing the (?) that he can be brought to trial for sodomy. They took that off now. So now they said if a Muslim, or anybody in the city, if one of those people come to you and they wanna rent your house, your appartment, your flat, if you discriminate against them you’re going to jail. If they come to work for you in your business, if you discriminate against them because of what they do, you’re going to jail. The Muslim says ‘Well I’m living in America, this is democracy, I have to practice democracy here’ all the while, every day when one of us goes to them with the (?) they discriminate against us and they have no (?) about it. But when the tables are turned you’ll find the Muslim being sincere having (?) in executing the way those people think and what they want from us, we can’t discriminate. We say Allah he will discriminate but we’ll discriminate in a way where we don’t get in trouble. The Muslim is a dentist, one of those people come and he has that disease, that tremendous disease that Allah put in those people, and he refuses to treat him, he may get his business taken away from him. So, as the Muslim dentist, I’m going to take a big, big needle and stick it in his gum and I’m going to numb all of the parts of his mouth to get that one tooth. No, I’m just joking ’cause they’ll take this (?) and get us all in trouble, it’s a conspiracy, everyone in the masjid. We’re just joking ikhwan. The point is ikhwan we judge by the book of Allah and the sunnah of the Messenger (SAW) according to what the companions understood and what they were upon.
28:30 “Concerning this issue from his people’s sins, the biggest one that most people reflect upon, and I don’t mean bigger than shirk, as we mentioned shirk is the biggest one, is this issue of al-zina al-fahisha. In all of these ayat that are mentioned about Lut’s story this issue is mentioned over and over and over. So it is a consistent theme throughout the Quran. And it leaves no room for anyone, in terms of al-Islam’s point of view concerning homosexuality. The story of Lut is in the Bible. It’s a story that’s in the Injeel and it’s a story that’s in the Torah but they changed the story. It is amazing that in so-called Christian countries, Jewish countries, they come and allow homosexuality. In the law it’s allowed, which is and indication of their hypocrisy and their kufr. But what’s really disturbing is the fact that we have some Muslims with a question mark who actually believe al-Islam does not address the issue of homosexuality. Homosexuality has been addressed in the Quran, clearly, and in the authentic sunnah of Rasool Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam.
This issue of homosexuality has a number of problems connected to it. Diseases and other than that. This issue of HIV and AIDS, one of the main ways it is spread, it’s spread in many ways, but the main way this terrible crime and disease is spread is from homosexuals introduced. It is not acceptable for Muslims to come and to have any doubt about the permissibility of homosexuality. It’s mentioned clearly in the Quran.
Abd Allah ibn Abbas, he said if someone is caught doing this issue…then he should be thrown off of a high mountain. Again, Abd Allah ibn Abbas said that. I don’t want someone coming and doing Dispatches and saying Abu Usamah said throw him off of the high mountain. Abd Allah ibn Abbas, Ali Ibn Abi Talib, they said what should be done, the person should find the highest place in the village, the highest building, throw him off and stone them from above because that’s what Allah wa ta’ala mentioned that the earth was taken and they were smashed like that and the brimstones came from the sky as well. I have to make this point, I am vehemently opposed to homosexuality because it is against our deen. I believe in everything that al-Islam said about homosexuality. The curse of Allah is upon homosexuals in al-Islam, but that does not mean that it is permissible for us, or that we’re encouraging anyone to go out and to break the law in this country concerning homosexuals. I’m not saying that at all. I don’t apologise about what Allah wa ta’ala mentioned about homosexuals in the Quran.
“If I were to call homosexuals perverted, dirty, filthy dogs who should be murdered, that’s my freedom of speech, isn’t it? They’ll say ‘No’ I’m not tolerant. But they feel that it’s OK to say something about the Prophet”
“Do you practice homosexuality with men? Take that homosexual man and throw him off the mountain.”
“So you can think of the worst sins, homosexuality, may Allah save us from that, may Allah save us from that crime.”
“And then finally the hadith ‘baddala deenahu, faqtuhulu’, ‘Whoever changes his religion then kill him.’ ‘Whoever changes his religion then kill him’. That’s not talking about the Yahudi [Jew] who changes his religion from Yahudia [Judaism] to Nasrani [Christianity]. It’s not talking about the Christian who changes his religion from Christianity to Judaism. It’s not talking about the Magian [Zoroastrian] who changes his religion from a Magian to being a person who doesn’t believe in Allah at all. This is talking about the Muslim man or woman who changes their religion from Islam to anything else, kill them in the Islamic state because he has made a form of shirk and that he has legislated for himself what Allah (swt) said was haram. And it’s haram for him to change his religion. So the Muslim who changes his religion, the penalty for that is death because he said it was halal.”
“If the Imam wants to crucify him (the apostate), then he should crucify him. The person is put up on the wood and he’s left there to bleed to death for three days.”
FLOGGING & STONING
“The one who is married and he commits zina he is stoned to death. The one who is not married and he commits zina he is flogged one hundred times and he is put out and expelled from the city for a year, that comes from the sunnah.
The fornicating woman and the fornicating man, flog both of them one hundred times for what they did. Flog both of them one hundred times and do not allow any mercy to cause you to refrain from flogging them in the religion of Allah. Stand up for the truth and establish the religion. Flog ’em.
The woman who fornicates and the man who fornicates flog both of them one hundred times. The scholars said one of the wisdoms behind that ikhwani is because ultimately the responsibility of the zina falls on the shoulders of the girl because she is the one who is going to ultimately give the final word.”
52:07 Reading question from audience:
Living in this non-Muslim country, is it permissible for a Muslim woman to pursue higher education studies if she lives at home?
If she doesn’t compromise her Islam and she can protect her religion…she’s not a fitna for them (men) and they’re not a fitna for her, inshallah it is permissible but it is better for her to stay in her home. (Arabic) Stay in your homes women and do not make the display of the times of jahiliyya. If the woman comes out of her home, he said, (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) the Shaytan beautifies her.
What about the woman who comes out wearing the clothes that our women come out in? It’s better for her to stay in her home.
“No man has the right to talk to another man’s wife except with his knowledge and permission, to talk with his daughter except for with his knowledge or permission, his sister except with his knowledge or permission.”
“Allah has created the woman, even if she gets a Phd, deficient. Her intellect is incomplete, deficient. She may be suffering from hormones that will make her emotional. It takes two witnesses of a woman to equal the one witness of the man.”
“If the person drinks khamr [wine] once, then flog him. And if he drinks khamr a second time, flog him. If he returns and he drinks it a third time, then flog him. If he drinks it a fourth time, then kill him. That’s the religion of al-Islam.”
0:18 “The reward, or the punishment for being a magician is that that individual is killed. And he’s killed because that’s what Umar ordered when he was the Khalifah. He wrote a letter to the Muslims and in that letter, in the Islamic state, he said (Arabic) ‘Kill every single magician man and magician woman.’
So those are clear proofs that show us that the one who is a practitioner of sihr [magic], he is to be killed”
“Christmas is an assault on our children right now. There is an assault, especially during these days. These days we have to get involved with sitting those children down and telling them it’s not permissible for the Muslim child to participate in any aspect of Christmas celebrations, from A-Z, impermissible.”
“Muslims shouldn’t be satisfied with living in other than the total Islamic State.”
“We want the laws of Islam to be practised, we want to do away with the man-made laws.”
“The popular culture, if you are a person who gives yourself to that, your mind is going to be controlled by the so-called powers that be who make these man-made laws.”
“So, murdering the baby by getting an abortion without having a legitimate reason in Islam is a (Islamic quote) and it’s like killing all of the people. Some of us we look at ourselves and we say ‘Well I’ve never killed anyone and I don’t plan on killing anyone and I don’t think a circumstance can present itself where I’m going to kill someone’ because you think about taking a knife and killing someone. You think about taking a gun and shooting someone. And we fail to think about that regular person from amongst us who, he’s not ready to have a baby, she’s not ready to have a baby and they’re married. So the girl gets pregnant and they get an abortion. That is murder.”
