The reason that MUHAMMAD (pbuh) was chosen to be a merchant.
Because there is no one more beneficial to human society than a merchant.
Everything ... the chair that you are sitting on is from commerce.
the fillings in your teeth are from commerce.The medication that is keeping your blood pressue optimum is from commerce.
Everything that is beneficial to the material well being of the human being is from commerce.
Commerce teaches you a good character. Because the most successful merchants are the one with good character. The merchant can never get angry because if he got angry the person buying from him will leave and the merchant will lose the sale. They always say "customer is king","customer is always right" .So it actually creates good character. Because simply you are forced to care what others want in order to fulfill your sale.
Plus another reason is that If you want your commerce to be successful you must be trustworthy. If you don't people will stop doing business with you.
Muhamed was called "altaqer elamin" meaning the honest merchant. This man was chosen as a prophet of the greatest peaceful messages to Earth. Now we have over 1.6 billion human-being who embrace this message.
Few hours ago I was buying oranges from a merchant who embraces that same message. However this man gave me 3 rotten oranges hidden under the rest. If that merchant knew anything about this message he embraced, he would know that misleading or falsely persuading others; and the practice of deceit has no part in that message he embraced. We have millions of people like this man that embrace this heavenly message by name. They talk and do in its name. Although all their doing contradicts Prophet Muhammed's message.
Bottom line: Please know your message that you decided to embrace, have clear view of it, know the teachings of the man behind this message and share it based on a clear understanding by your acts and behaviors before words and statements.
I would never believe this merchant nor his message ever again. So be-careful, you are a seller of your message that you embrace.

when he says meat, what exactly does he mean? Does he mean just red meat, or does he mean any kind of animal flesh (chicken, fish, etc.)?

It is appropriate to say whatever just as long as it comes from the kindness of your heart, just as long as you wish the utmost best for whomever you are speaking to. Please be a voice for our collectivism, please do not see us Muslims as aliens for we are VERY similar to you. Good bless you! Peace and blessings be with you!

Muslims need to go back to the dinar and dirham monetary system. Any "islamic finance" not based on dinar and dirham is void.

Just to be clear again I have no issue with the message of his presentation, but he clearly states between 15.53 and 16.01 that the average American has 59 slaves working for him. Maybe it is a misquote (to be honest i cant find the reference anywhere) but he clearly does not suggest shared slaves. As a converted Muslim I find the inability of adherents to engage in meaningful self criticism abhorrent. Its a minor issue. Ours is a great religion it can withstand a minor math error Get over it

The absence of gold as a currency being linked to a dajjalic system, this is an astounding read: "Jerusalem in the Quran" by shaykh imran hosein. This book demonstrates how Jerusalem is the key to understanding the Dajjalic world order with evidence from Quran and ahadith.

Eloquently spoken. Don't get me wrong it's great to see that this issue is being highlighed to an audience of this scale and by a scholar of this caliber no less, however this issue has been expounded upon by Shaykh Imran Nazar Hosein and Umar Vadillo and others who are beyond just identifying the issue but are actively searching for practical steps Muslims can take to brace for the inevitable. Shaykh Hamza is providing some practical steps but action is needed promptly. time is almost up.

I greatly admire his speech but 59 slaves per person in the US is impossible. multiply 300 million (us pop) by 59 and you get over 17 billion thats twice the population of the world

Dec 13, 2012. There has never been anything flippant Hamza Yusef ever said about anything, perhaps you should listen to him more often. The world is not living entirely on COCO, Chocolate is a NOT a staple food of any country.

Thank you Sheikh Hamza for highlighting perhaps the most important third way to the false dialectics: Keynesian or moneytarist conception of ecomoics; the Planned or so-called self-regulating economy. We have always been told that religion is a personal thing and thus have nothing to do with our social discourse or our collective obligation to those less fortunate than ourselves. Talks like this ought to be encouraged to people to understand and appreciate their obligation to those in need.

Consuming the products of a business enhances its growth. An immoral growing business is no thing humane individuals want to see occur.

shaykh Hamza Yusuf I met you only 2 hours ago having listened to two of your talks. I am a Christian, may be you will forgive me for that. I certainly do relate to what you say. Society, commerce, banking, virtue, healthful practices like eating all this and more I am in your camp. It would be my pleasure to be present when you speak. Send me a schedule when in San Diego or near by. I am not sure what might be appropriate to say, so "God Bless"
