scheduled for public broadcast at the Annual CagePrisoners Iftar Dinner
2009, was banned by the Kensington and Chelsea Council in London without
"And what is the matter with you, that you fight not in the cause of
Allaah..." In the lecture Anwar Al-Awlaki gives the audience a much
needed reminder, using the Qur’aan and Hadeeth, to give a solution to
the humiliated Ummah. Reminding us that “our honour is in our religion”
and so we should return to it, if we wish to see the return of al
Islaam. Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki delivered this lecture entitled "State of
the Ummah" on 1st March 2009 via Teleconference to our brothers and
sisters in Pakistan
Allah Almighty says: “Behold! Verily on the friends of Allah there is no
fear, nor shall they grieve; those who believe and guard against evil.
For them are glad tidings, in the life of this world and in the
Hereafter.” The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) explained the glad tidings of
the life of this world to be dreams. He said it is: “the good dream that
a Muslim sees or is seen for him” The world of dreams is an amazing and
intriguing one. The early scholar of Islam Ibn Qutaybah says: “There is
nothing that people deal with from the different sciences that is more

There has been recently an increase of unacceptable behavior from the
kuffar towards our beloved Prophet. So what is the ruling of sharia on

a talk titled: “The Dust will Never Settle Down”.
Allaah will suffice His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) against the criminals who mock him. He says (interpretation of the
“For he who hates you (O Muhammad), he will be cut off (from posterity
and every good thing in this world and in the Hereafter)”
i.e., he is scorned and humiliated and cut off from all that is good.
When the Muslims besieged a stronghold and its people resisted, then
they heard them mocking and reviling the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him), they would sense that victory was at hand, and it

This lecture was delivered to a South African audience via live phone link on Sunday 11 May 2008.
It was part of a Conference held by PureIslam Da'wah and Publications
themed: Holding on to Hot Coals - Surviving as a Muslim in the West.
An important topic that is going unnoticed by the majority of people
around the world. With the advancement of communications in the world,
the enemies are not only plotting away with their weapons but also with
their lies portrayed in the media spreading all sorts of lies to justify
the slaughter of innocent human beings
In light of the current situation the Muslim Ummah is facing in
the West, it is evident that there is a pressing need for a better
understanding of how the Muslims should live as a minority in a
non-Muslim society. Sheikh Anwar Al-Awlaki sheds light upon the Quran,
hadeeth and the seerah (particularly the first 13 years in Makkah) and
presents lessons to the daiee’ in order to strengthen his or her
methods of conveying the message of Islam to the West.
