Excerpts from this sermon:
"Speaking the truth and the facts sometimes is not an easy thing to do. Listening to it is also sometimes quite difficult.""
"For those who are familiar with the Islamic literature, at the end of the day a person says to himself, between him or her and ALLAH Subhana wa ta'ala, Oh ALLAH the only, most confident reference that I have is YOUR BOOK and YOUR PROPHET. YOUR BOOK is here. It's available. I can read it. YOUR PROPHET...There are many mirrors that reflect different information about Him."
"ALLAH Subhana wa ta a'la says, مَّا فَرَّطْنَا فِى ٱلْكِتَٰبِ مِن شَىْءٍ The easy way to translate that is: WE didn't leave anything out of the revealed Book, The QURAN; WE haven't left anything out."
"In another Ayah, ALLAH Subhanahu wa ta a'la says, بِالْحَقِّ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ وَبِالْحَقِّ نَزَلَ
According to Al-Haqq, WE have granted this QURAN and according to Al-Haqq, this QURAN has been granted...has been revealed from on HIGH. There are other Ayat in the QURAN that speak to us about the factual nature of this Book. No dispute about it! There are disputes and arguments about many other things but this QURAN there's no argument about IT. There's arguments about how to understand IT but about IT itself, there's none."
"...Let me try to make this a little more understandable. If you hear the words of The QURAN, when was it that you told yourself -- I am listening to ALLAH? This observation: You are listening to ALLAH! Many times in our human weakness, we are listening to the person who's reciting the Quran..."
"In another Ayah ALLAH Jalla wa alla says on behalf of HIS Prophet, وَقَالَ الرَّسُولُ يَا رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِي اتَّخَذُوا هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ مَهْجُورًا. My people have abandoned this QURAN."
"And then we are told the President of the United States, Mr. Trump is going to meet with MBS (Mohammed bin Salman) in Argentina at the end of this month when the 20 most developed States meet. We're not supposed to think about this. Where does this مَّا فَرَّطْنَا فِى ٱلْكِتَٰبِ مِن شَىْءٍ ... We didn't leave out of the QURAN anything but why do we leave these types of developments out of our mind?"
"Amnesty International...The Khutbah on Friday is trying to relate information from Amnesty International that says the detainees in Saudi Arabia are being subjected to TORTURE and SEXUAL HARASSMENT. If we are Muslims and this is happening in the land of the Prophet, in the land of the Kibla and the Kaaba, in the land of Islam, we're not supposed to THINK about WHY this is happening; remain SILENT about this!"
"Now there is agitation within the royal ruling family in Saudi Arabia. Many members there are saying this 33 year old dictator has gone too far!!..."
"Then we had the visit of the Zionist war criminal who's the Prime Minister...He went to Oman. And everyone knows about that but I don't think many people know that Oman opened its' air space for the airplanes; Israeli airplanes to fly over Oman on their way to India! It's another consession that has no basis. It's another stab in the back of the Palestinians, the Arabs, and the Muslims!!"
"In Saudi Arabia, women are protesting why they have to wear their black Abaya. How is that protest? They're turning their Abayas inside out and wearing them in protest. Why should Muslim women be protesting? If we have information from ALLAH and HIS PROPHET, we ask why are you doing this? No! Many of these people who ascend the Mimbar on Friday, they don't want to mention an issue like this. Why? It's a fact. No one is, you know, making up things."
"And then Lieberman the war Minister who just resigned in the colony of Israel; he says something like this: If we're not going to deal with Hamas, in one year Hamas is going to become something like Hesbullah. It's another one of the pieces of information that...Oh! Why do you say something like this on Friday in a Khutbah? Because Friday is meant for the Taqwa of ALLAH. We guard and protect ourselves against ALLAH's Authority and Power for JUSTICE!"
"Kuwait expelled an Israeli activist! What is an Israeli activist doing in Kuwait? Eighteen hours after he landed, he was told LEAVE! And this Israeli activist is reported to have gone to such places as Jordan and Iran and other places. Of course, he's traveling on an American passport which should tell us, some people are giving visas without doing their homework! and they give hard time to people who deserve a visa and say, No you're not very much desired here!"
"Trump says, If it wasn't for Saudi Arabia, Israel would be in serious trouble or something to that effect! What does that tell you about Saudi Arabia?"
"And then he thinks Saudi Arabia for bringing down the prices of oil. What is it now? $57 and a few more cents for a barrel. And he said, It should go lower than that. And the Saudis who have no Taqwa for ALLAH. They have Taqwa for Trump! The Saudis are Taqwa for Trump!! Yeh, they'll bring down the oil prices not knowing that they're setting the Muslims up for a reaction to these type of policies. We're going to regret it and they are going to regret it. Everyone's going to regret these type of policies, whether you are a consumer or whether you're a producer because it's not FAIR! It's not JUST!"
"Now in a Khutbah on Friday, I'm going to quote US Senators. YES!...Going to quote US Senators...What they said. Senator Lindsey Graham said, "Mohammed", he meant MBS, Mohammed bin Salman "is" quote "CRAZY!!" This is not an Imam speaking. It's not an activist, a revolutionary, a radical. It's Lindsey Graham, a Republican in the US Senate and a senior one for that matter. And then he goes on to say, "It's not too much to ask an ally not to butcher a guy in a consulate." Senators say what Muslims dare not say. Bob Corker, another influential Senator on a foreign relations' committee. He says, "I never thought I'd see the day a White House would moonlight as a public relations firm for the crown Prince of Saudi Arabia!" This is not Muhammad al-Asi speaking. It's a Senator. Rand Paul, another Senator, all of these are Republicans, "Let's put America first, not Saudi Arabia first." And then the Washington Post...this is in a Khutbah on Friday...The Washington Post said, "A world..."; this, this is a comment on Trump's statements when he more or less whitewashed the criminality of MBS. It says, "We are looking at a world where dictators know they can murder their critics and suffer no consequences." A French newspaper. Look...this information is out there. But Muslims are not supposed to bring this information under the scope of their Quranic mind and under their Prophetic personality. NO! You're not allowed to do that!! La Figaro...A French newspaper said, "Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain have purchased spy instruments to spy on their own citizens from ISRAEL!"
"And then we have the Prime Minister of the Zionist colony in Palestine preparing, this comes from their own Hebrew Press, preparing for an official visit to Bahrain. All of these issues do we find answers to them in the QURAN or are we detached?
