This is a preaching feel-good message for Muslims. It is a sermon on how a Muslim should conduct oneself and how to demonstrate proper faith in Islam. Now honestly if you go into this in ignorance, this is written so well that Islam is as good a religion as Judaism or Christianity. However, if you know a few facts about the perfect man Mohammed of whom this message demand emulation, you might begin to see just how deceptive Islam is as a religion of peace. Indeed a Muslim reading this should feel the passion of the religious experience of seeking an Allah-consciousness. The sermon writes about honoring that which is revered by all Muslims, Christians and Jews. We know that doesn’t happen! The sermon condemns the call for an Islamic Reform because it is an attempt to be friends with kufr (kafir). Instead of reform the sermon calls for Revival. Revival means to return to the purity of Mohammed and the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs. If don’t know it Mo and his first four successors were an empire building bunch that tolerated NO dissention against Islam. Open dissention meant subhuman lives and death. In fact Islam’s empire days known as the Golden Age to Muslims, HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS died in order for Islam to become permanently entrenched into the minds of the conquered for generations to come.
In my estimation this is the wicked flowery deception of a religion that has a definite dark side but brainwashes adherents and candidates for Islam with a passion for good living exemplified by good and honest character. The Quran, Hadith and Sira paint a different picture for those that reject Islam. I will save that for another post.

Global Caliphate Revived: A Message from the 21st Century Caliphate
We find in the Holy Quran Surah 33:21 that The Almighty Allah says: “Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent example, for him who hopes (in the Mercy) of Allah, and the Last Day and Remembers Allah Much” Subahanallah just look at the beauty and guidance of this verse; In Surah Yunus 10:104 we find The Almighty Allah commanded Nabi Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam to be amongst the Muminun “True Believers” and thus is it that he possessed all the beautiful qualities of the true believers “Muminun” just as Allah mentions in the Holy Quran. Subahanallah see the importance of reviving the qualities and characteristics of Muminun “True Believers” into our lives, We further find in Surah Al Qalam 68:4 that the Almighty Allah says: “And lo! Thou [Mohammed] art of a marvelous nature.” Subahanallah just see the status and sublime character of our beloved Nabi, the Slave of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam. Through this Nabi, the seal of prophets, the Imam of the Anbiya, the Imam of this Ummah, Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam whom Allah has chosen, chosen to be an example for mankind, an example of how to follow and practice this Deen, Deenul Islam, this Deen which Allah has completed and perfected through the example of Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam.
If we look at the Hadith we find that the Prophet Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Walalaam Said: [“I have been sent to bring the morals “character” of men to perfection.” Subahanallah we should Praise and Thank Allah for making us amongst the Ummah of His beloved peace be upon him; In another Hadith he said “I have been sent to complete good conduct”.] (With emotion L say)— Allahu Akbar! Does the Muslim generation of today know his value? Mohammed Ghayru’galqila, (sob)… Salu’ala Rasul’lillah Habibil Mustafa, Peace be upon the Messenger of Allah, Mohammed The Chosen one, he is our guiding light, he is our Imam, he is our beloved friend, our Nabi, the best of mankind, there has never been anyone as caring and kind as him to have ever walked upon the face of the earth. Ya Allah we beg You to raise us with our champion, our hero, our beloved Mohammed Salallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam.
Beloved Ummah of devout believers, indeed we have a wealthy legacy left by our Beloved Nabi Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam, the Final Prophet and Messenger of Allah, a legacy based on sincerity, self-sacrifice, dedication and remaining true to the ways “characteristics” of Believers, which can be traced back to the glorious era of the first three generations after our beloved Nabi Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam. …
We urge and ask of Muslim families around the world to rather send their children to Islamic Schools for education purposes to prevent the isolation of the child, our children are to emulate the greatest people in the history of mankind the Sahaba and our Beloved Nabi Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam, they should focus on studying the various Islamic Sciences, such as Islamic History, Islamic Law “Shariah”, Quran Psychology, Islamic Finance and Economics, Medicine, Art and Architecture etc… as is allowed by the Laws of Allah. …
The Enemies of Islam
The enemies of Islam have been working hard on weakening the Imaan (faith) and belief of the entire Muslim Ummah and their attack is on every individual Muslim and they are using the Munafiqeen (Hypocrites) among us, the Munafiq [our hidden enemy] are clearly identified just as the Almighty Allah mentions in the Holy Quran. These people [our hidden enemies] have been working on a project to try and destroy Islam from within, this project is known as Reformation of Islam, I repeat so look at the words [Reformation of Islam] not reformation of people to Islam, my beloved brothers, sisters, elders and respected Ulama they know very well of our grievances and they use this to their advantage, instead of following what Allah and His Messenger subscribes for us [the Shariah of al Islam] they subscribe the vile Kufr system called Democracy, they call themselves Reformists, Modernist and Moderate Muslims yet nothing about them resembles a Muslim with the lowest amount of faith. They claim to be the voice of the Muslim Ummah but they are the mouthpieces of the Kufaar.
Fellow Muslims, the True Believing Muslims are Revivalists, such noble people always seek for the return of the original as it was taught and practiced by the Prophet Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam and his companions, the Revivalist Muslim is one who Enjoins upon you Taqwa (God consciousness) and such people inspire you to become al Muttaqi (the Conscious slave and servant of Allah) in every moment of your life, thus you will not be neglectful of the Presence of Allah in all that you do and your life in this world will consist only of truth, verily the people of truth are the Muttaqoon. [2:177] The sign of Taqwa is that whatever you do in your daily life, no matter where, how or when, you are always conscious of Allah’s Presence, hereby naturally you abstain and withhold yourself from committing any sin and you learn self-restrain. Constant Thikr [remembrance of Allah] is what keeps the true believer in check and free from sin.
The hypocrite is easily distinguishable, they are the ones who say they have no enemies, they are the worst of company, they befriend Kufaar, they claim to believe but practice nothing of Islam, they try to deceive Allah and those who believe but they deceive none but themselves, Subahanallah, Alhamdulillah, Mashallah, the Munafiq say why should they believe like the fools believe? They do not follow the rules but follow their own desires, they go against the teachings of Islam, they misquote verses from the Quran to suit themselves. They make a mockery of Islam. A’uthubillah May Allah Protect us all. The Munafiq is an even greater enemy to the Muslim Ummah because at least we know those who are openly disbelievers in Islam [i.e. Jews, Christians, Atheists, etc…] but the Munafiq proclaim to be Muslims but they are not, they are Kufaar [disbelievers] that will be thrown into the deepest parts of Jahannam [The Fire of Hell] May Allah save us Ameen.
… Amongst the Disbelievers there are those who say Islam is a good religion, and some even go as far to say that yes! Islam is the true religion and they know it is the truth but they won’t accept because they say Muslims are bad but Allah makes it clear, Islam is not the property of a people and the religion is a matter between the individual and the Almighty Allah Himself, Islam is to be engaged by its beautiful scripture [The Holy Quran] and the guidance thereof, not by the misguided and hypocritical people who lay claim to being Muslims. What we as Muslims should realize is that the Munafiqeen, the Hypocrites among us are working together with the known Disbelievers to disunite the Muslim Ummah, they are working very hard to try and get us to fight against each other, they commit the crimes and blame it on internal disputes, as Muslims we know for a Fact! That it is forbidden for a Muslim to kill another Muslim, and it is forbidden for a Muslim to attack and destroy religious sanctuaries even if it is that of a Disbeliever, but as we know very well that the Munafiq will broadcast this falsehood and look for a means to cause disunity. The Hypocrites will further try to demonize the different groups of Believers and accuse the one from the other of a crime; our enemies have nothing to hold onto so creating issues of division is their only tool which they will try to use against us. We need to be alert, remain upon the path of True Believers and we will remain successful.
Defending this Great Nation:
All Praise is due to Allah, who has based the heavens and the earth on justice and given permission to the oppressed to take revenge from his oppressor in due measure. [Satement (sic) by one of the Mujahideen who met the Barakah of Martyrdom] Oh fellow Believers, We find the Almighty Allah commands us to Fight those “The Kufaar” who fight against us, and to fight them is Fard (Compulsory) upon all Muslims, and Allah lays down the criteria of justice for Jihad “great struggle” against them in the Holy Quran [Surah Al Baqara 2:190-193],
And such True Believers can never be defeated, for Allah is always their Defender and Helper: And be not weak hearted, nor grieve, for you will have the upperhand, if you are True Believers. [Surah 3:139]
Fellow Believers it is only the Munafiqeen “Hypocrates” (sic) who track back from Fighting in the way of Allah; they dislike the call of Allah where He commands us upon Jihad fiSabilillah; this is because they are not Believers and neither are they Muslim but Kufaar “Disbelievers” in the open, and Allah makes it clear that it is they “Munafiqun Hypocrites” who are an avowed enemy unto us. To fight for the cause of Allah is not only a Fard and a Sunnah, it is a Barakah “Blessing” for the True Believers, it is a means to purify the soul and it stands as proof of ones true faith in Allah, it is what divides Imaan “Faith” from Kufr “Disbelief”.
Oh faithful Muslim take heed of Allah’s command: “O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. And thou seest those in whose heart is a disease race toward them, saying: We fear lest a change of fortune befall us. And it may happen that Allah will vouchsafe (unto thee) the victory, or a commandment from His presence. Then will they repent of their secret thoughts. Then will the believers say (unto the people of the Scripture): Are these they who swore by Allah their most binding oaths that they were surely with you? Their works have failed, and they have become the losers. O ye who believe! Whoso of you becometh a renegade from his religion, (know that in his stead) Allah will bring a people whom He loveth and who love Him, humble toward believers, stern toward disbelievers, striving in the way of Allah and fearing not the blame of any blamer. Such is the grace of Allah which He giveth unto whom He will. Allah is All Embracing, All Knowing. Your friend can be only Allah; and His messenger and those who believe, who establish worship and pay the poor due, and bow down (in prayer). And whoso taketh Allah and His messenger and those who believe for friend (will know that), lo! the party of Allah, they are the victorious. O ye who believe! Choose not for friends such of those who received the Scripture before you, and of the disbelievers, as make a jest and sport of your religion. But keep your duty to Allah if ye are true believers.” [Surah 5:51-57]
Was the Khalifa ever abolished?
The answer is NO! The Imamat (leadership) of the Muslim Ummah will never cease to exist.
Throughout the history of Islam the Khalifa has moved from one group of people to the next, from one generation to the other, and it has remained in the hands of the pious Ulama, Imamat (leadership) of the Muslim Ummah has moved around the world and history bears testimony to this fact from the Arabs to the Persians, Turks, Africans and Indians to the Malay-Indonesians, the Chinese and Europeans, Islamic Kingdoms have been established across the entire world and each Monarch to some degree has had its fair share to play in governing the marvelous Muslim Empire, today we find the table of Khalifa laying open, who knows from where the next champion will be raised to represent and guide our people upon righteousness, perhaps it could be America, China, India, Russia, Africa, it could be from any part of the world, even the people whom we may see as our greatest enemies can be guided by Allah and given the responsibility to Awaken the World’s Greatest Civilization that will bring about an era of Universal Brotherhood and Sisterhood as never seen before in history. It can happen at any moment, anytime, anywhere but the question remains who will be the next champion in the cause of Islam. As strange as it may sound we Muslims should know better, Islam is not the property of a people or a certain tribe, it is a universal religion and Allah choses (sic) whomever he wills.
Allah is the Guardian of those who believe; He brings them out of the darkness into the light. [2:257]
Concerning the Selection of Khalifah?
Thy Lord creates what He wills and choses (sic): they have no right to choose [28:68]
Verily I am about to make a Khalifa on earth [2:30]
Oh Dawud! Verily We have made thee a Khalifa on earth [38:26]
I am about to make thee an Imam to mankind [2:124] (to Nabi Ibraheem Alaihi Salaam)
And we made them Imams who were to guide by Our command [21:73]
So Who appoints? Certainly Allah! But this is with regards to those whom Allah has sent as Prophets and Messengers, peace be upon them all, but with regards to the Khulafa after the Prophets and Messengers, for such is a different status, such only represent the message of the Prophets and Messengers, their duty is to uphold and guide people upon that which the Prophet of Allah has taught, their responsibility is upon the lines of Prophethood, they have taken that responsibility to maintain the people upon that which the Rasul of Allah has taught.
Like the Ansar of Madina were to Nabi Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa”salaam when he made Hijrah and established the Islamic State, so will be the Ansar of Khorasan to the Khalifah, Imam al Mahdi, they will raise the Black Flags and defend the cause of Islam, their Army will be fighting against the enemies of Islam and they will liberate Dar al Islam from tyranny and oppression until they station the Black Flags in al Quds, no one will be able to defeat the Army of Amir ul Muminun, it is a Fard upon every able Muslim to join the Army of the Muslim Ummah and to pledge allegiance to the Imam of the Muslim Ummah
Some guidance on perfecting your life:
All that we want is the entire Muslim Ummah should be successful, we want all of us to enter Jannah Inshallah. Every Muslim should strive to be the perfect Muslim. Implement all the beautiful qualities of the Muminun in your life, be like our beloved Nabi Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam. Put the Quran into practice, this is the solution.
REMEMBER ISLAM IS THE SOLUTION.
We live in a brave new world of what was previously unimagined and unimaginable possibilities; fellow Believers our New World Order is such that it is based on Sublime Character and Distinctive Morality that will set the course of human history on a path of peace, tranquility, honor and dignity. Mankind will finally be free from a world of enslavement, it is our duty to protect the world from corruption and all forms of evilty, everyone, both Muslim and Non-Muslim deserve to live in a world that is safe and secure, Fellow Muslims the Holy Quran is the Declaration of Human Rights, if a Non-Muslim asks you regarding his or her rights under the Shariah of Allah, refer them to the Holy Quran as it clearly states their rights, freedoms and protection under the rule of the Khalifah. Fellow Believers we know very well that the enemies of Islam will always try to distort the Image of our beautiful religion, we know that they deceive their own people and they will do anything in their power to oppress and stop those who try and attempt a Revolution for real change, The Islamophobic Racists would kill and imprison their own people who dares to challenge their evil system of manipulation and greed, you can protest, go on a hunger strike, set yourself on fire in a demonstration, demand a revolution and you will fail because they will stop you because you are powerless, you will lose your dignity, your respect, your honor and soon they will call you the enemy. Turn to Allah and you will be successful… The Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran that He will not change the condition of a people unless they change that which is within themselves so REVIVE ISLAM WITHIN YOU!

Global Caliphate Revived: A Message from the 21st Century Caliphate
SlantRight Note: The “Global Caliphate Revived” post is an excerpted post of points of interest that struck me with disagreement. You really should read the original post if you feel the need for clarity on this Islamic sermon.
