MashAllah. There should be more people like this in this world. inshAllah.
There is success in the laws of Allah…
And loss in our own desires.
Many of us find this out the long and hard way…
You don’t follow Allah’s rules, you lose BOTH in this world And the next!
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),
Verily Man is in loss,
Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds,
and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth,
and of Patience and Constancy.
FYI: around 10:30 is when he begins to talk about knowledge…
It is a bit concerning that for rhetorical effect he connects wearing a suit with advocating haram things and wearing a thobe and turban with being moral. Islam does not legislate a particular form of cultural dress, if a suit covers a man it is allowed. There is a subtle association of western culture and dress with “mushrikeen” and his form of dress as Islamic. Most interestingly, the Prophet did not wear the Saudi-style thobe he is wearing here, so I think we need to take advocacy of “identity Islam” with a grain of salt.
Aside from that, I like his talks overall, I just have an issue with certain underlying messages which he seems unaware of putting out there.
