Sheikh Hamza Yusuf

Uniting for the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) Part Three

There is always something new in store for you when you have heard a hadith before and your heart is open.

If we have forgotten about the deaf its because we don’t hear. (He commented on person signing for the deaf.)

In sign language the sign for the Americans is guns blazing (similar to a cowboy stance with hands in a pistol shape, at waist height.)

The sign for the British is jaw moving (he puts his hand on his jaw and moved it side to side)

The Americans go in all guns blazing and the British talk too much, he found this out from a deaf Arab.

People assume that they can’t speak.

Chivalry is to listen to a completed thought he (the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)) never interrupted peoples speech.

The meaning of Usama is a leaping lion and the meaning of Hamza is a roaring lion.

There were non Muslims who couldn’t understand the Quran but understood the Character of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)

The Crusaders brought back soap with them and washed themselves.

It took 500 years for amount of converts to reach 50% in Syria

Paraclete means Intercessor (The name of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) in the Bible)

By their fruits thee shall know

We need to live Islam

The Sahaba didn’t have anger, they did what they did for Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala not for their own needs.

200 years ago less than 30 people in London started a movement that abolished slavery.

What destroys people is arrogance

If there is an Alliance to help weak people, we should be there

We cannot be a people of hatred

We should desire guidance

Those who show mercy, Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala will show mercy to them

When kings conquer a city, they ask the leader, “If you’re angry then it can’t be for Allah.” Subhanu wa Ta’ala

The Muslims were already in Europe during the 8th century when Christianity came to Britain.
Those who disgrace the messenger, disgrace the religion

You should be concerned in looking for where you are going

Broaden your horizons

Understand the Quran and study the Sira

The word mawlid is noun of time and place it is also a masdar (nominalised noun). You cannot deny the masdar.

The grammarian was on a boat and asked the man, “have you studied grammar?”
He said “no.”
“Then you have wasted your life.” The boat began to sink,
“Have to learn how to swim?”
“Then you are about to lose your life.”

Vessels can only pour out what they contain

Imam Haddad (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) prayed Fajr and there was people waiting to shake his hand. He shook hands with the inhabitants of the city and he was asked why he did that. He said, “Why shouldn’t I shake hands with the people who think that I am worth the wait.”

It’s a honour for me to be here with you today.

Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) colour is green, the first and the last colour that can be seen with the eye.

He is the first and final Prophet (peace and blessings upon him).

Each Prophet (Upon them peace) has a colour, red is the earth colour for Musa (Upon him peace). The colour of the dome in Medina is green for a reason.

It needs to green with Iman not envy.
