  1. There's nothing wrong with the video unlike what some commenters have made it seem. The people in America today aren't responsible for the evil actions of the people of the past. He brought up a very relatable example with the sin of Adam (AS) whose initial sin later generations can't be held accountable for. He emphasized on viewing social justice from the prism of Islam rather than relying on some non-Muslim ideology that makes you by default assume evil of your fellow human even when they might just be your brethren in Islam. May Allah keep our feets firm upon Islam.

  2. 2:87
    وَلَقَدْ ءَاتَيْنَا مُوسَى ٱلْكِتَـٰبَ وَقَفَّيْنَا مِنۢ بَعْدِهِۦ بِٱلرُّسُلِ ۖ وَءَاتَيْنَا عِيسَى ٱبْنَ مَرْيَمَ ٱلْبَيِّنَـٰتِ وَأَيَّدْنَـٰهُ بِرُوحِ ٱلْقُدُسِ ۗ أَفَكُلَّمَا جَآءَكُمْ رَسُولٌۢ بِمَا لَا تَهْوَىٰٓ أَنفُسُكُمُ ٱسْتَكْبَرْتُمْ فَفَرِيقًۭا كَذَّبْتُمْ وَفَرِيقًۭا تَقْتُلُونَ ٨٧

    Indeed, We gave Moses the Book and sent after him successive messengers. And We gave Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the holy spirit. Why is it that every time a messenger comes to you ˹Israelites˺ with something you do not like, you become arrogant, rejecting some and killing others?
    — Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

    وَقَالُوا۟ قُلُوبُنَا غُلْفٌۢ ۚ بَل لَّعَنَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ بِكُفْرِهِمْ فَقَلِيلًۭا مَّا يُؤْمِنُونَ ٨٨

    They say, “Our hearts are unreceptive!” In fact, Allah has condemned them for their disbelief. They have but little faith.
    — Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

    May we fear Allaah in how we respond to our religious leaders when they inform us on a matter. Aameen.

  3. Not only that you not even American although slavery did took place in Canada and Canada is apart of the Americas but this is pertaining pacifically USA affairs which you shouldn’t comment on

  4. @youtube you need to bring back the dislike button. These people that run these platform are not even indigenous to the Americas like indigenous aboriginal dark skin native Americans and those that are light, or the blacks that was bought over to the Americas and been here for centuries which had became indigenous. These people are from desi Asian and Arab background and Eastern Europe that became Americans by default due to the civil rights movement movements their parents and themselves benefited from which allowed their parents to birth anchor babies on us soil which they feel give them the right to speak on racial issues they aren’t qualified to speak on, then dude with right wing against us and then with the left when they see it’s if benefit

  5. Very tacky and and unethical with a non scholastic talk which is not academic. base you know nothing about America history or critical race theory. Same people who push and promote Palestinian issue and struggles and do fundraisers for Muslims in oppress regions but they always side with white supremacy views and have their same talking point. This person is not even from ahlul elm. Then have the nerve to talk about reparation which goes to show you the true colors and what they really feel in their heart, reparation and crt is two different things, so why is he mentioning reparation when the talk is about crt which he is uneducated in? There is some many things I can refuted and respond to this individual with historical facts and proof but I don’t have the time.

  6. This brother right here is misleading. There is no envy in getting someone to honor their end of the agreement. You gotta give someone what’s rightfully theirs even though if they are non muslim. This is the first video that I dislike from this channel and hopefully will be the last

  7. How can he say there is an element of envy? Envy of what? power ? We don’t want to be like them we don’t envy their power how can we envy the oppressor?! We simply want justice and fairness. Did Bilal RA envy those who enslaved him and put the boulder on his chest?Of course not.

  8. This video is very embarrassing for you guys. Clearly don’t know what CRT is and not knowledgeable about American history…which is fine I don’t expect an Australian network to know so why even do this video? I had to turn it off when he said “there’s an element of envy, Allah has gifted these people” Subhan’Allah who would envy the oppressors? What a crazy statement.


    Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also

    ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    – 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4 KJV

    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13 KJV


    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    – John 3:16 KJV

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:17

    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    – John 14:6 KJV

    Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

    For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:10

    But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. – Isaiah 53:5

    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

    And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

    – Mark 1:15 KJV

    He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

    – John 3:36 KJV

    Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. 2 Timothy 1:9

    For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. Luke 19:10

    The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

    He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:16

    For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 1 Corinthians 15:22

    For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:7-8

    I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. John 10:9

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

    – Romans 10:9-11 KJV

    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    – Romans 10:13 KJV

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16

  10. Crazy how people talk without knowledge of what they're supposed to be talking about and show themselves as ignorant of their religion and the subject they're attempting to address in tandem with the religion. It's bizzare how a lot of you are ready to ride for the American evangelical right despite them hating you. May you be placed right next to your masters in اليوم القيامة

  11. When the companions came to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, and they asked him a question. If he didn’t know the answer, he remained silent. This brother doesn’t really know what CRT means and he doesn’t know African American history. CRT explains all of the racist systems that were created after slavery and the Jim Crow era, and that still exist today. CRT has nothing to do with reparations, that’s something completely different. In Islam when you make an agreement or a contract, we’re suppose to abide by it. When the first African Americans were freed they were promised land that they never received. So there’s nothing wrong with expecting that contract to be fulfilled, not by envy of anther group of people, but it’s what’s owed. Do you understand how much land and property were stolen by African Americans, that people are still benefiting from today? That’s generational wealth that was stolen. We can’t stand here as Muslims and say it’s wrong when the Jews steal the land from the Palestinians, but then say another group can’t get what’s owed to them, that’s hypocritical.

  12. What AQEEDAH is he from the deviant al ghazaali logic and reason off shoot from Ilm ul kalaam. Dear brothers and sisters Islam did not start in the so called orientalist Golden Age OF 450 AH. Islam does not reference to any philosophical argument. If you are, you will never denounce deviancy but unite in deviancy. Big problem with the Ummah at the moment.

  13. Attempting to heal the wounds of centuries old colonialism isn’t against Islam. Allah swt wills everything that has come to past, that doesn’t mean we can’t challenge systems of power that have been unjust

  14. I’m an American living in Palestine
    Israelis need to right their wrongs
    If they were gifted this land and wealth, by stealing it from the Arabs already living here for generations. Perhaps their test is to give it back .

  15. OnePath. Sincere Advise.

    Have someone who is grounded in the deen and someone who has been accepted as an academic scholar.

    Muslims shouldn't and wouldn't accept someone who's learnt their basic fard al ayn to be someone they can turn to for knowledge. There are processes structures and systems invovled for someone to reliably transmit sound knowledge of The Deen of Allah.

    Likewise, for something such as philosophy, economics, law, medicine, biology, science, etc. one would turn to the experts and those qualified in the field. There are also processes systems and structures behind being accepted as a reliable and sound source for these too.

    The same goes for "CRT".

  16. How fighting injustice system that was built on racism is materialistic? Fighting for your right is materialistic?.. this why the religion can't solve and heal the people from being racist

  17. السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته،
    I'm not sure he understands CRT and what it's really about. Sure, you can use Islamic rulings to aid in addressing why racism is wrong but simply put, critical race theory states that U.S. social institutions (e.g., the criminal justice system, education system, labor market, housing market, and healthcare system) are laced with racism embedded in laws, regulations, rules, and procedures that lead to differential outcomes by race.
