Daniel Patrick Boyd
"It is very important that we understand the six things that are sacred for the Muslims that must be protected at all costs. It is without a doubt the deen, the deen of Islam. Our lineage, meaning those who came before us, we protect their honor, their name. We don't let somebody trash-talk Abu Bakr [Arabic surname], we don't let anybody trash talk Shammu [Arabic surname]. We do not let anybody trash-talk the Mujahideen who came before us, in any way, shape, or form. What is also protected is our intellect, our honor that would also be the honor of our sisters, our wealth and our blood. These are the six items. They must be protected at all times and by any means.
"However, the Muslims have allowed every one of these six things to be attacked or taken from the Muslims. The American troops even occupy the place of our two holy sites, Mecca and Medina. This isn't some fantasy, this is a reality. They are there and they are helping the Jews be in our third holy site, Aqsa. That would be our deen. This was forbidden by the Prophet (swt) on his death bed, he forbid that they can be in Mecca and Medina and there they are. The blood of the Muslims has become cheap in the world market and this pitiful condition of our ummah is because most of the Muslims have abandoned jihad. When I say most of the Muslims be clear that I am talking about all the Muslims except one - one thousandth of a single percent. They are not doing jihad fisa bil Allah and this is why their condition is what it is. And I want to recite to you again a Hadith that we used last week because everything with the Muslims has become intellectual and metaphorical while the Kuffar are taking the real world right from out from under our feet.
"Allah's messenger has warned us about this saying, 'Beware of a time that is coming when all of the nations of the world will gather together like wild beasts gather around a plate of food to wipe you out.' His companion said, 'Will we be so few in number that day Rasul Allah?' And he said, 'No, but on that day you will be so many but you will be like the scum on the surface of the water when it hits the shore. And Allah will take from the hearts of the Kuffar respect for you and fear of you and will cast into your hearts, wahhad. When I asked what is the wahad? He said it is love of this world and hatred of death.' And Ahmed added, 'Love of this world and hatred of fighting.' "
