Sheikh Hamza Yusuf

Just enough religion to hate

We don’t haven’t done anything wrong and nobody can accuse us of anything

With every right, there is a responsibility

Mishala Morsal are laws made by man but not sacred law

Ibn Qaum Jawzi said that;
There are 4 types of Haram
Is easy to wipe out sins I.e. drinking
Harder one, between you and people
Between you and Allah
Saying what you don’t know

You can’t say what’s halal and haram

Our understanding needs to be open

People consult Sheikh Google?!?!

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said, “Enter into this religion, gently.”

A bedion urinated in the mosque (the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) explained to him the rights of the mosque.) “Know peoples level and what they will do and teach gently.” Understand the nature of the people.

We are losing our balance as a human nature

Rule of law is part and parcel of Islam

Tarhb in the Quran means to deter. (The modern word in Arabic for terrorist is Irabi which is from this root.)

We have every right to defend ourselves

Governing principle in Islam is justice

Jihad is in carried in order to prevent injustice

Allah Ta’ala is enough for you a protector if they incline to peace your should incline to peace

Ibn Tamiyyah said that “Christians only show the sword as proof and Islam conquered with proof.”

Islam came to conquer hearts and souls not bodies

Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) had a desire to guide people

Every person in the world is part of the Umma of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)

I’ll leave you with three things

Change your understanding of Jihad. “peak of the peak.”

1a. Jihad al naafs “The one who struggles against his passion.”
Musa (Upon him peace) dropped the tablets, if we get carried angry we will lose the sacred

Isa's (Upon him peace) way was to turn the other cheek

Ibn Jawzi al Qalbi said the best revelation is in the mercy

You cant say about Allah Ta’ala what you don’t know

Ali (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him)wanted to find out what was in a letter sent to the Muskrin

We could be wrong in something

There are more Muslims living in Europe than in the Arab peninsula

Don’t call each other Kafir, Kufr is about belief

Abu Hammish said “It is easier for me to call 1000 non muslims , mulsim than call one muslim kafir.

Taqwa is to behave with Allah ta’ala inwardly and outwardly

Stop backbiting, don’t find fault in your brother, its as if you have faulted yourself

Don’t mock other groups

Allah ta’ala puts the Muslims into one group and the Kafir put us into smaller groups.

The prinples of Jihad are three

Justice (in the path of Allah)
Response to aggression
Don’t be agressors
The Abbassids had diplomatic ties with france, Harun Al Rashid sided with the French over the Ummayyads in spain.

Prohibit yourself first

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) visited someone who used to put thorns in his path, he wanted to find out if she was ok.
