“Be Peacemakers”, Sermon by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, Eid Al-Fitr 2010

Be pious people, be good people. Don’t cheat the system, live within the laws, this is our religion. To be good citizens. Be exemplars to this religion, your here your not somewhere else. You have immense opportunity, many of you have been blessed greatly. Use your wealth for good. Don’t squander this opportunity, life is very short. Many of us are growing old before our eyes. We have young children, we need to sow the seeds for those young children to reap the benefits of our hard work and labor.

Please take it as an opportunity. Don’t ignore the winds that are blowing out there. Many of the Jews in Nazi Germany didn’t see those winds blowing. They thought this must be as bad as it’s going to get. We are watching it get worse and worse and worse. At which point,  if we allow this is happen, they will make it impossible for Muslims to live in this land with their children without concern every time their child goes to school. I believe in the heart of hearts, it’s Allah swt that is waking us up.  If we don’t wake up, we have no one to blame but ourselves. Allah swt has told us “tell people who you are”, our beloved Prophet (S) said “empower people if you can’t do it yourself”.

    dear saad

    assalam alaykom,

    you said:


    Allah swt has told us “tell people who you are”, our beloved Prophet (S) said “empower people if you can’t do it yourself”.


    can you get a quote on these two things?

    ( shekh hamza never claimed that the prophet or Allah said this in his sermon, i think you misinterpreted what he said, go to 25:30 of the video and listen again)

    jazaka Allah khayran, wonderful sermon!

    be peacemakers? allah (swt) said for us to find the kufar munafiqueen and mushrikeen and persecute them this is nothing more thatn westernized cock-sucking fest. allah has said that 1 hour of jihad is better than 60 years of praying next to the black stone of al kaba. and those who die in his name will forever be rewarded. [3:169] Do not think that those who are killed in the cause of ALLAH are dead; they are alive at their Lord, enjoying His provisions.

      Brother Abu Bakr, i think comments such as yours highly decentralize the islamic creed. The sermon has justified its very reality as to what Islam really stands for and preaches, i suggest we stop being "angered" by the very verses in quran which promote jihad and resolve to proclaiming jihad first upon our inner self rather then the world outside.That is where the real problem lies, correct yourself from interior perspective, the world will ishallah reflect it.salam
