    Teaching also helps. If you're sat there teaching a class every day, you're speaking. So it's not too hard to then transfer than to a public lecture.

    Students should have a day a week to practice public speaking right from year one. But if you're past that and have actually graduated, then it's just practice, practice, practice. First many times will be nerves anyway but it's just about getting accustomed.

    On a related note...any tips for dealing with public speaking nerves? Once a student of knowledge gets to a level where his teachers are happy for his to give a khutbah or two, it can be daunting if they have not had much practice.

    A request to English speaking Friday speakers

    Respected ulama

    Please see if your weekly speech can be recorded in HD high quality video and uploaded to YouTube and other social media.

    It's no extra work for you. You prepare and deliver your talks anyway.

    Please concentrate on topics that affect us in the West.

    Social media use
    Sharīáh law
    Women's rights
    Attaining closeness to Allah
    Peer pressure (ok, pir pressure too)
    Device use

    Just ensure it's in English and basically any topic that youth can relate to and that helps them to strengthen their faith.

    Ban Pakistani dramas in your homes.

    Western liberalism has pervaded the country and money is being used for the nefarious purpose. America is pumping in millions.

    The content is designed to cause the breakdown of the traditional family unit.

    Adultery, cheating, plotting, feminism, liberalism, argumentation. What do you think this does subconsciously to viewers' minds?

    Wholesale ban. Talk to the women in your homes and explain logically the vices at play.

    Liberalism is a misnomer.

    It's the most totalitarian ideology and least tolerant of varying viewpoints.

    A bit like Ford. You can have any colour as long as it's black.

    The answer is Islamic schools.

    But until that happens, you HAVE TO ask your kids regularly about what they learnt in school and if the teachers mentioned anything about Liberalism. So that's homosexuality, gender, feminism, atheism.

    You have to then deconstruct it and ensure the kids realise how stupid the teachers' views are.

    This isn't ideal. The real answer is Islamic schools.

    Listen carefully.

    Unlike when I was growing up, when wahabism was the biggest threat to faith in the UK, things have gotten worse.

    The tide has changed and the waves are logarithmically stronger.

    What we're up against now are tribulations that take a person right out of Islam, knowingly. Meaning, the person himself knows he is leaving Islam but willingly does so. This is far worse than wahabism.

    Our efforts these days have to be on these new fitnahs.

    Atheism, agnosticism, liberalism.

    We have to talk a lot more about the existence of Allah, the signs of Allah, the perfection and equilibrium in His Creation, the superiority of shariah, the miracles of the Quran, the perfection of our master RasulAllah ﷺ and his sunnah and that Islam is the only religion that is really living in 21st century.

    My brothers and sisters, for small, everyday things, bring Allah into the conversation. E.g. today, it's the summer, you get the best mangoes, eat them with the kids and talk about the signs of Allah in these fruits: how they all taste different, look different, how they grow, how it is amazing that they're edible and good for us, how the peel is a millimetre or two, but, without it, the mango wouldn't last, how taste buds work, etc, and all this cannot happen by chance.

    There are signs of Allah in everything but it just needs us to think and then talk to the kids about them.

    If you make them proud Muslims from day one, they will be ok, Allah Willing.

    The number one factor in maintaining Islamic values in children is the home environment. Numero uno.

    It's an uphill struggle even if you have the best home environment because as soon as they step out the front door, liberalism is everywhere: schools, workplace, billboards, society.

    They don't even need to step out anyway. Every home has a 50 inch satan in the corner and every kid goes to bed with a smartphone.

    But if there was an influencer that can still save Muslim kids, it's the home environment. It's the parent(s).

    Become their best friend. From day nought. Marry a devout spouse who will live Islam. You have to be an upright Muslim yourself. A proud Muslim. You have to learn Islam yourself and know the answers to tough modern questions. Keep the kids attached to the masjid and go at least once a day for congregation with them. Instil hijab from the beginning. Enrol them on masjid courses that are taught in English. Explain the reasons why kufr ideologies are wrong. Express love for scholars in front of them. Pray your sunnahs at home. Wear a hat and a jubbah. Don't watch movies or listen to songs. Tell them stories about RasulAllah ﷺ and the heroes of Islam. Mention the signs of Allah ta'ala in whatever you do. Even if you cut an apple, talk about how Allah created it: the skin, the vitamins, the seeds, the taste. Recite Quran, fast, pray, give alms in their presence.

    Talk to them. Just talk to them.

    Remember, all this can't happen in their teens. It has to happen from the start.

    The best kids in your locality are those whose parents are attached to the masjid. Go do a survey.

    You know how our ulama battered wahabism in the last one hundred years (and did a good job),

    We then supported that by sharing their work,

    We all now need to unite and smash liberalism.

    Our time and resources and posts and videos should batter it. Our kids need to realise how utterly shallow it is and when under scrutiny, it falls apart miserably.

    Shaykh Asrar has made a good start by debunking Atheism. Everyone should join in and deconstruct all aspects of this bull that is taking OUR kids out of Islam.

    If Sunnis teach aqidah at grassroots level, we won't see the swathes of sulh kulli and closet shiah in our midst.

    More importantly, less of the neo-Darwinism, atheism, agnosticism and liberalism.

    Every Sunni organisation should invest in aqidah classes rather than urs and naats.

    The next generation that will hardly hold onto their iman will likely curse those on judgement day who threw money on naat khwans while atheism and liberalism were fed to the ummah.

    Sunnis are the most deluded of all groups when it comes to priorities.

    I said this on 24th December:

    It would be great if Sunni speakers could talk more about liberalism and social problems. I mean fully dedicated talks.

    1. It'd pack the masjid out.
    2. These topics affect every home.

    LGBT, feminism, atheism, marriage, divorce, rights of husband, wife, children; gender, relationships, muruwwah, futuwwah, drugs, alcohol, balloons, hiring cars, weddings, etc.

    What should the Imam talk about in the Jumu’a speech by Syed Madni Miya

    Salaam, I think littering should be a topic. If it comes under “Caring for environment” it should be made a separate topic seeing as it is rife within our communities and needs much more attention.

    If people can look at the list and add their own topics. I really do feel our Friday speeches should be fully centred around one topic, recorded and placed online. And more often than not, it should be about hot topics like social issues.

    I say that because every other week, someone messages to ask who amongst our ulama discusses social ills like the wahabis do.

    We do need to build our database of youtube videos for such topics.

    I am not this other Abu Sulayman which one of you referred to and have never heard of the other forum.

    Salaam, the most important question due to your screen name is are you AbuSulayman of Islamic awakening* fame?

    *AbuSulayman refuted the salafis with clear cut victories years back
