00:01:25--> 00:01:26

Go ahead Sure.

00:01:27--> 00:02:04

Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen well suddenly was salam ala sale oh well, evil Arkadin nabina, Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa barik wa salam. All praise the due to Allah, Lord of the worlds and peace and blessings be constantly showered upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad, the master of the first and the last, and his family, his companions and all those who call to his way and establish his sunnah to the Day of Judgment. As to what follows my beloved brothers and sisters to our viewers are Salam. Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:02:06--> 00:03:05

Alhamdulillah, we thank Allah subhanaw taala for this opportunity to share our information to reflect upon our past and to project for our future. And that is so important for Muslims today, to take a proactive, positive look at our situation. potentialities and to get some direction as to which way we should go. Because for many people, for those who are not aware of the complexities of the Muslim world, the present situation may appear to be extremely difficult to accept, even confused. Because the Muslim world is a mass of people. It is a growing mass of people is going 26, close to 30% of the Earth's population

00:03:06--> 00:03:15

will go on over 2 billion people on earth. You just think about that number. And people who live in key strategic areas throughout the planet.

00:03:16--> 00:03:40

People who possess some of the greatest wealth on Earth right now, because of the war that's happening with Ukraine and Russia. People are looking towards the Middle East for the oil and gas. So many of the small Emirates and Arabia are becoming richer and richer and richer.

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

At the same time, we have extremely poor people.

00:03:45--> 00:03:51

We have people in Gaza, who are literally eating grass to survive.

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

Who was suffering in Somalia.

00:03:55--> 00:04:00

In the Sudan, there may be close to 4 million displaced people.

00:04:01--> 00:04:08

The Rohingya Muslims and main Ummah, still suffering haven't really gone back to their homes.

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

And you can go around the world and you will see that Muslims are in a very difficult situation on one hand.

00:04:16--> 00:04:22

But on the other hand, materially they are doing better than anybody else.

00:04:23--> 00:05:00

Had Allah told us we're not blue or Kombis shortly we're fairly fitna, but you lay now towards your own. And we will test you with good and with evil, and you will all return to us. And so Allah subhanaw taala has told us clearly that our tests will vary, but ultimately we have to return to the Creator of the heavens and earth. And so we need to reflect on our numbers. Reflect on our youth. We are one of the youngest and healthiest nations in the world. In many of the countries

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

especially Western countries,

00:05:02--> 00:05:21

the Muslim youth are probably healthier than anybody else, because the percentage of Muslim youth who are not drinking alcohol and not taking drugs, and not fornicating is higher. It doesn't mean that we don't do it. But our chances of not doing it are better.

00:05:22--> 00:05:39

The chances of completing education, the chances of being a good tax paying person, the chances of having a stable family are higher than the other communities who don't have divine guidance. And so

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

we need to study this contradiction.

00:05:43--> 00:06:17

We need to recognize the fact that our countries are in key positions with resources that Allah has blessed us. And so what is happening. And so we are looking at pivotal moments in Islamic history, to try to understand, to gain the wisdom, to be able to deal with the contradictions that we're facing in the world today. And, as I said, that contradiction of a mass of people

00:06:18--> 00:06:28

that contradiction of all this potentiality but getting no results. It is reaching epic proportions now, as we see in the world.

00:06:29--> 00:06:35

But a body that appears to be big, but it has no functioning head.

00:06:36--> 00:07:24

Its bloodstream is corrupted, its foundations, its bones are corrupted. That body can actually be something unreal, it can be an illusion, looks like a big person, but it's not. And the Prophet SAW Selim told us an authentic hadith that the day would come when nations would call their people to pounce upon the Muslim world, like you're calling your friend to eat. And when they ask them a messenger of Allah, is that because we'll be smaller number 10. He answered, He said, No, you will be large in number. Will our Kindle come hosaka, Goethe said, you will be like the phone, twigs, twigs and sticks on the water.

00:07:26--> 00:07:51

And I remember living in Cape Town, and they're in southern Africa. On the coast, you see a lot of foam, and you see this action, but the foam and the weeds, although they may look like a lot on the surface, the phone can be pushed to the right, it can be pushed to the left, the sticks follow the torrent, or they follow the tides, because they have no base.

00:07:52--> 00:08:04

And so the Prophet SAW Selim gives a beautiful example, that you'd be larger number, but you would be like the foam on water, no foundation, no strength.

00:08:06--> 00:08:22

And then they asked What could this be from and the province of say, you will have a sickness one. And they asked him what is that sickness and he told them, how bit dunya or Cara here to vote, you will love the life of this world.

00:08:23--> 00:08:36

And you will hate to die. So that materialism that would come in that disconnect with an era with the next life. When that comes in, it will be a serious division.

00:08:37--> 00:08:53

And other cases, Allah tells us clearly in the Quran, in many places, hold on to the rope of Allah, all together, be not divided. And so the Muslim world is supposed to be united and not divided.

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

So we find that from the beginning of time, the evil one or the other Biller,

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

the shaytaan, wanting to lead Muslims off the path

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

has come to us in many different forms. And one of the the chief missions of the devils to Shayateen is to break up a family

00:09:15--> 00:09:40

to break up communities to break up countries to break up our leadership disunity. Because as we learned when we are divided and arguing with each other, then our strength is dissipated. So that large body becomes actually a number of small, weaker bodies in different parts of the world.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

And so this is what we are looking at, at this pivot these last few pivotal moments. Before the month of Ramadan comes in. We want to look at some of the major negative pivots. How did this body become weak? And then to look at a prayer

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

To EcoSense what was the solution?

00:10:03--> 00:10:17

What did Allah subhanaw taala raise up at particular times, pivotal times in order to deal with the divisions and deal with the confusions. And so when we look back at

00:10:18--> 00:10:21

where we were in the last session,

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

we find that

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

the

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

Muslims at that time,

00:10:32--> 00:11:23

the body of Muslims, which we know as Allah, sunnah, well, Gemma, and that only means those who are following the Quran, those who are following the traditions of Prophet Muhammad, Salah Salem, and is the Jama. This is the masses of the people. And at that time, the other Sunday was your ma would be about 98% of the Muslims. Only a few splinters broke away, we learned about one of the splits is the coverage that broke away. We also found out during the field effort of Alibaba not be tolerated. Read the law, one that another division start started to show its head in the Muslim world. And that was a division that is now known as Shiism, or the Shia.

00:11:25--> 00:11:52

And the way it's projected in the world, as though the Shia is 50%. And the Sunday is 50%. No, it was never like this. In the early times, it was 98%. And then maybe it went to 95. And we learned that it wasn't till the 16th century, that she hasn't became a state religion. And so there you'd get the number going up. And so now today we say

00:11:53--> 00:12:26

the other Sooners 85% and the other splinted groups will be about 15%. So that's still the overwhelming majority. But to look at this in a balanced way, we have to understand not don't get caught up on names. And we understood the word shear itself only means a group a sect. That's all of the word means. At one point that was the shear of Moussa and the shear of hottie they disagreed with each other. Eventually, after the assassination of Ali, by this cocoa wattage group,

00:12:27--> 00:12:39

the Shia of Maori became a government. So the word Shia was only being used by those who were supporting Ali Rani along with and this is what you could call political

00:12:40--> 00:12:56

Shias. Okay, and that's supposed to what we'll see is theological CSM. So political theism was really supporting the family of Addy. And that was many of the concrete companions.

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

The those who were against

00:13:00--> 00:13:09

the roommates were ruling while we it wasn't so bad, but his son Yazeed. We found out that this was a major mistake. So

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

those who were

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

opposing

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

the rule of the roommates

00:13:18--> 00:13:32

were living in Mecca, Medina and Kufa and many different parts of the Muslim world. And the height of this, as we learned last week, was when Hussein read the law was the son of Ali.

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

He could not

00:13:36--> 00:14:26

handle that fact that Yazeed had taken over as the Khalifa because that meant that now the leadership of Islam was a kingdom. It was a family. And he opposed this and the people of Kufa asked him to come, that's an Iraq, and they would support him. And he went there with his family really a long one. And unfortunately, in the struggle, Yazeed sent his forces and Hussein and most of his family were killed. May Allah have mercy upon them. This caused an uproar. In the Muslim world, this was a terrible situation. And so people's started to gather around the remnants of Hussein's family, or the Ireland date. And of course there is Hassan too, because that's one of the sons of Ali. So

00:14:26--> 00:14:32

people gathered around them to protect them, because they were under threat by the government at the time.

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

And this was still political.

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

She is now we recognize the fact that in Kufa itself. Now remember, Iraq was a center of extremism. They say that in Iraq, there are more coup de ties and overthrows of government than anywhere else on Earth. So this has always been a hotbed.

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

of intrigue. And

00:15:03--> 00:16:00

there was a fusion of extreme elements in Iraqi society at the time, who joined those innocent people who were supporting the family of ally radula. One. And so these elements included former members of the dynasty of the Senate, because remember, the Persian government was overthrown. Its people went north into Central Asia, where they went underground, they started coming back. Also, the followers of Abdullah bin Saba, you remember the conspiracy, the one who started to bring any strange ideas, so that those followers also joined into this group. And so what develops out of this is sort of a hodgepodge. new type of concept that's coming. This is what I'm calling theological

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

fears.

00:16:02--> 00:16:14

It's not the same as the people who were supporting our debate. No. And that's something that all Muslims actually should be doing. But this is a group who had ulterior motives.

00:16:15--> 00:16:24

They wanted to seize power to silence. They were people from the occult underground movements that joined.

00:16:25--> 00:16:37

They wanted to oppose the Sunnah, to oppose authentic Islam in any way that they could. And so what develops out of this is a concept that is called impairment.

00:16:38--> 00:17:28

And these are the distinguishing points because you would say what distinguishes the Sunnah from the Shia, what is because people are still basically praying the same. But then concepts start coming in. One of the chief concepts is about imminent, the leadership and I'll go into that. Another one was amongst the prophets, companions, that these extreme groups who came in, they started to curse the companions. And they said, there were only about seven other companions that were actually good people. And they said, Carl, Amanda Hana rissalah, that these companions, that they deceived the trust, they deceived the message. And in their minds, it was because with man was chosen as Khalifa

00:17:28--> 00:17:33

and Ali. And of course, this is a major mistake, because Ali himself supported with men.

00:17:35--> 00:17:48

Next is the concept of the Quran. Now, you remember that Earth man read the law on when word had come in from home last time, that there were people trying to make their own Quran.

00:17:50--> 00:18:41

That was men gather together, the reciting of the Quran. And he himself was a Hafiz. And they put together an authentic set based upon their memorization. And the scrolls that they had, this is the most heartfelt with many. And they sent it to the capitals of Islam. Now, remember, they did that because there were other texts and other concepts that were moving around. If they could find it, they would destroy these and let everybody use the main authenticated our written code. And although people had it in their minds, but in some cases, there were sections or false sections that were there. And so this is where people had a wrong concept, that the core area wasn't complete, that

00:18:41--> 00:18:50

there were certain chapters like Serato Wilaya. That's not in the book. Okay, so this was one of the parts of this new theological series.

00:18:52--> 00:19:41

There was also the concept of MATA and that is temporary marriage. And that is where a person, a man could marry a woman just for the weekend, for a short period of time, and then they could divorce. That, of course, is against, you know, the mainstream Sunda the original form of metop came in when the companions were traveling long distances, and they came into foreign lands. And so they were allowed to have temporary marriages with the women of the area. And if the woman had a child and that would be their son, but if not, they could pay a certain amount and you let the woman go. But this we found out through the prophet saw Salem, and his companions, that motto was canceled to the

00:19:41--> 00:19:49

Day of Judgment. That is the position of the Addison. There is no temporary marriage you married, you're married.

00:19:50--> 00:19:55

But amongst as this theological Shia, it was an alternative.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

The fifth of the major points is this concept of takia, or topia.

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

And that is where you could lie to another Muslim. You could dissimulate, you could do a type of, you know, organized hypocrisy, or legal hypocrisy. Maybe it came about because they were hiding, they had to hide their identity. And maybe there was some cases where they had to tell a lie, but you don't make it into a pillar of the faith. Okay, this is where the problem came in. And that's these are the distinguishing points.

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

We have to recall,

00:20:33--> 00:20:55

in terms of leadership, and I want to just solidify this so we get the positive part, not just the negative, that the concept of the Khalifa, the concept of the Islamic rule is that the Caliph or the Khalifa is the successor, or the deputy, representing Allah subhanaw taala, as the vice Jarrett,

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

at this office is not reserved to a special family.

00:21:01--> 00:21:34

Now, there are traditions that point to the fact that if we could find somebody from the Quraysh, from the family of the prophets of Salaam, who was a good Muslim and who everybody accepts, we would prefer that person because he reminds you of the Prophet, but it is not hard and fast rule. Next is that the person who wants to be was chosen should not be aspiring for it, you should not want to be the leader is meritocracy, the person who deserves the position of leadership.

00:21:35--> 00:21:38

Okay, next is that

00:21:39--> 00:21:54

the Khalifa is not a dictator. He's part of Assura are part of a major consultative body made up of the learned people. And they can disagree with him.

00:21:55--> 00:22:36

He might be able to overrule them, but they work it out amongst themselves. That's the Islamic concept. Okay, it's not the ultra Greek democracy. It's not Ultra communism. Right? It is, you know, a shorter, a mutual consultation with an Emir. In this case, it's the Khalifa, who's the head of state. Next is that if the Khalifa dies or becomes incapacitated, he can no longer deal with the job, then he doesn't give it to his son, right? The shorter chooses and the people then solidify, and they accept or they reject.

00:22:37--> 00:23:25

And the Khalifa also is a human being not a person who has supernatural powers. And not from some, you know, alien being or some angelic type, you know, a human being one of the believers was chosen for that position. And many verses in the Quran that Allah tells us that verily in archroma, command Allah here at Koco, that Verily the most ordered in the sight of Allah is the one who's the most righteous. Okay, that, you know, Allah has promised to those amongst you who believe and work righteous deeds, he will surely grant them power in the earth as he grant those who came before them. So those who have Taqwa, you do righteous deeds, right. And and Allah said, obey, and you owe

00:23:25--> 00:23:34

you believe, obey Allah, His messenger and those among you trusted in authority. So you will obey your leaders. Okay? This is not a kingdom.

00:23:35--> 00:23:43

But the theological Shia position became that the Imam is designated by Allah.

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

Okay, not

00:23:46--> 00:24:04

chosen and solidified by the people to that the only ones who could be the leader will be somebody who is the family of Adi. And that's with Hussein, and I'm going to show you this family, but the theological group, they only want to accept the same side.

00:24:05--> 00:24:55

Okay. Also, they started to believe and this is not the political Shiism. Now, this is the new theological side that came in with some strange concepts. They believe that the Imams are infallible, they don't make mistakes. So it's some special authority or some special powers that the Imams have, this also is a mistake. Okay? And some of them even what goes viral and say, All creation submits to the emails. This is a mistake. This is not the reality. Okay? And they even made a moment in some cases, like what are the pillars of Islam? And that, of course, would be a better that would be, you know, an innovation. Instead, I want to show you this economic concept, because

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

it's going to lead us into the next pivot. That is coming along. Now.

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

Now, let's go back to the family tree of the province on Salam. We go back to the Kurdish and the Kurdish family coming from Ismail, right, coming from Cuba, Rahim Allah Islam and Hajah

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

you'll be pleased with them

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

down to Qusay, then you see on your chart, abdomen F.

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

Okay, then you see Hashem.

00:25:24--> 00:25:45

And you'll see amongst Hashem czar brothers, there was of the shapes, no fill and see different people. Now coming down a little bit further, you will see on the side of the family there, go back and look at this. Yeah, decide about the shrimps. Okay, one of his sons was called omega.

00:25:46--> 00:26:13

So omega was very powerful, and how she was very powerful. So these two clans were the leading plants in Mecca at the time. And that's where you get the name Hashemites. And you get omegas. Now, these are important names to know. And I want you to be clear of this. So it's interesting when you know these names. The Kingdom of Jordan is called Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan,

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

the king of Morocco,

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

he believes he is a descendant of the Hashemites.

00:26:23--> 00:26:52

The MA D, the coming one who was promised to lead the Muslim world is from the Hashemites. So it's a very important term, right but for our intensive purposes, is is the family from whom came up to metallic and then Abdullah. Right look at your chart, and then Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So you see the brothers of Abdullah and of gas Abu Talib, Hamza Lucha and how did you see the brothers

00:26:54--> 00:27:28

and then you see Prophet Muhammad peace be upon it. Okay, so by the will of Allah, the Prophet SAW Selim did not have a son. This is divinely ordained, because if he did, the people will probably want his son to rule and that would have destroyed everything politically. But Allah was merciful and gave gender to his sons. He did not have a male to take over after him. And so his cousin Ali, who was like his son, and who grew up much of his life in the prophets house.

00:27:30--> 00:27:49

He married the prophets daughter Fatima. So the closest to a bloodline, the closest to a son would have come from Ali and Fatima. Okay, so from there, you will see that Ali Rhodiola one

00:27:50--> 00:27:55

by this theological Shia group is considered the first Imam.

00:27:56--> 00:28:01

Okay, the first email now remember, for backing up the Liab and Saba. They were

00:28:03--> 00:28:23

raising Alia up, exalting him even trying to make him divine and he rejected this. He clearly rejected this. Okay, now to go down in this theological Shiism, the second email they consider the second was Al Hasan, you remember Al Hassan took over as the Khalifa.

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

And the third was Al Hussein.

00:28:28--> 00:28:47

Okay, so that's how the numbers go. Now, what's interesting is that Al Hussein, married the daughter of the leader, the Shah of Iran, the Senate's shade of blue. So the children of Al Hussein have not only prophetic blood,

00:28:48--> 00:29:12

but they have the blood of the Persian dynasty. So God knows best. This family is the one chosen by the theological group, because the theological group per se, this group is is like divine. These people are chosen by God. They're not chosen by the people. Okay, so three is Hussein. Four is Ali Zainul, Aberdeen.

00:29:13--> 00:29:41

Okay, now, he's a survivor of the massacre. I was saying, Well, yeah, the villa Ali's Adel Aberdeen is the next. Okay, number five is Muhammad Al Baqir? It's Mohammed Al Bakr. Okay is the fifth of the Imams of the theological shears. Now, see Muhammad's brothers, Zaid. So it is from Zaid

00:29:42--> 00:29:49

comes Aedes and that's important to know because remember this idea of Yemen they're very important other duties.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

Okay. Very important group to understand that this is where it comes from showing you. Okay, so number five is Mohammed Al Baqia. Okay,

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

Eight and six is Jaffa Asante.

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

Okay, and

00:30:09--> 00:30:16

seven, and this is where a dispute comes in. We'll talk about a little more, but basically

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

that that the 70 Mom

00:30:20--> 00:30:26

was Musa al Kalam now, many believed that it should have been Israel.

00:30:27--> 00:30:47

Okay, but for some reason Lord knows best Some say that he had he didn't have good, you know, character enough, most of Kalam was chosen. Okay, so he was number seven. But people broke away the followers of a smile. They broke away and they said, No,

00:30:48--> 00:31:11

he is divinely chosen. And he's number seven. And seven is a mystical number and anxious times seven a year. Number seven, and so they follow Him. And they're known as seven year, seven years because they believe that the divine moment stopped at seven.

00:31:12--> 00:31:16

Okay, but the mainstream Shia group

00:31:17--> 00:31:21

continued after Musa al Qaeda was Alia riddle

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

after Halle was Muhammad a turkey

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

after Muhammad was Ali Al Hadi

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

after Ali Al hadI was hustled scary.

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

And

00:31:35--> 00:31:40

a struggle was going on. Because the Abbasids at the time who were ruling,

00:31:41--> 00:32:28

they were the creditors, and they saw the other bait as opposition. And so the other big people had to be underground. Okay, and for the most part, from what I've learned, and Allah knows best, all of these Imams were actually good Muslims. There was none of this extreme beliefs, cursing companions. None of that was amongst them. As a matter of fact, Jaffa esodoc You see, number six, he was a close friend of Imam Malik. May Allah be pleased with them both. Imam Malik always described Java with high terms. Anytime we saw him, he was fasting. He was making salata he was doing Vica he was a very pious person and a knowledgeable person as well. But according to traditions, and hustle huskily,

00:32:29--> 00:33:07

you know, had a son and he was under attack by the by by the Bassett government, and his son was under the threat of death, he crawled into a cave. And this is Mohammed Ahmed Tada. And they claim that this is the mighty, this is the promise one problem you have with this. Remember the occult, they have no regular boundaries of time, because he died or supposedly escaped in 878 Do the math the difference between 878 and that means he's been in a type of occult state

00:33:09--> 00:33:18

up until now. We don't assume that does not believe that we believe only isa Leysin he was raised and he is alive. And

00:33:20--> 00:33:24

now the mainstream Shia group which is called twelvers

00:33:25--> 00:33:29

This is they believe Imam it stopped at 12

00:33:30--> 00:33:34

Okay, so it is it is that mainstream group that

00:33:36--> 00:33:48

is still has a lot of political shears and therefore it is that mainstream ignatia The the twelvers that are basically accepted by the Muslim world they make Hajj

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

they are accepted as part of the Ummah

00:33:53--> 00:34:04

difference of opinion now, as long as they're not crossing companions, say the Koran has not completed things like this, then they are accepted, you know, within the nation of the world of Islam.

00:34:06--> 00:34:10

Remember the seven this is my year was the Imam at the time.

00:34:12--> 00:34:22

When Ismail died in 760, the son, the son, the muzzle Calvin was chosen, right and a branch

00:34:23--> 00:34:26

followed is my heel and accepted his son.

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

So this male died.

00:34:29--> 00:35:00

This branch accepted his son as the seventh EMA because he wasn't officially designated and they said no, he's the seven other ones say it's this menu, but this is how the movement starts it starts right around that time. Okay. Now, the difference between this group and the mainstream is that here they start putting on disguises and this is where these these occult concepts come in. So amongst the people

00:35:00--> 00:35:48

People who contributed to this occult form of Shiism is Abdullah ibn Mahmoud Al Qaeda. He was unknown magician. He was an occultist who came into Islam. And he became the chief missionary of this movement. Right. And they conceal themselves strictly, basically, in Buffalo, and Southern media in Iraq. It was a secret society. And they had gradations. And this is interesting because it is said they were the Knights Templar during the crusades, and we'll look at the Crusades later. They picked up a lot of these secret traditions from this Ismaili group, the gradations.

00:35:49--> 00:36:23

Okay, which degree are you? The numbers, the symbols, a lot of that came through the Knights Templar, who eventually became known as Free Masons. So the Masonic movement also comes out of this, as they would take out a lot of things from out of the Muslim world, right. And seven was the sacred number seven does appear seven heavens, seven Earth, you know, seven does appear twice, but we don't

00:36:24--> 00:36:35

place any sacredness just to the number, but according to ancient times, seven was a sacred number. So this is the seventh year. This is a cult

00:36:36--> 00:36:41

that is now a pivotal moment. This is a pivotal moment.

00:36:43--> 00:36:55

We're trying to understand what would make this mass of Muslims even in those days, what would weaken us, but would divide us? How would you say toggle the other Billa

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

cause this division

00:36:58--> 00:37:06

and one of the great scholars are able to Josie Rahimullah wrote a book called zombies bliss. And that is the devil's deception.

00:37:07--> 00:37:15

Okay, and he talked about the different forms of deception. Now, we have seen how those in the

00:37:16--> 00:37:33

sheer movement, the coverage, they will be in deceived, especially when they went into this extreme. But now we will see the devil's deception of botany. Yeah. So this is a new concept. It's called the botany it's a it's a splinter

00:37:34--> 00:38:13

that becomes a splinter and a split in the Muslim world. Okay, and that's what we need to know. Because these are some of the splinters along with other ones based on race, tribe, politics, money and greed. We have to know our weaknesses in order to build our strength. So the button is the concept of button basically means inside. So you look at a person you say the button is your inside your button, Arabic Is your stomach, right? So the button is the inside and the thigh here is your outside outer aspect. Okay, so they believe

00:38:14--> 00:38:48

that you're in Islam, okay, they went into Islam, but they wanted to bring in different concepts. Now, they couldn't bring these concepts in, on the outside. Because the outside of Islam, the law here, had caught and it had sunnah. And Hamdulillah. We have hundreds of great Imams and leaders and teachers. There was Bukhari Muslim Academy, the Anasazi with Hadith. And there were so many great scholars who actually codified the Sunnah.

00:38:49--> 00:39:39

So that if somebody comes in the outside and claims that this is Islam, he's got to have a problem. Okay, because that's outside. But inside is different, because according to them, that's secrets. So it's secretive knowledge, and where the secrets of knowledge actually come from. Allah knows best. It's based upon Do you accept this teacher or not? And sometimes teachers are long being sometimes he has a tall hat. Sometimes they they have a beautiful name, have beautiful eyes, or they have the gift of the gab, they can talk nicely. Okay. And so, through these buttons here ideas, this crept into the Muslim world, they actually tried to negate the Creator.

00:39:40--> 00:39:49

And again, by making the creation like Ali as high as the creator, you're negating the creative creator. You also invalidate prophethood

00:39:50--> 00:39:54

you invalidate the Sunnah, because part of prophethood is the Sunnah.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

You invalidate worship and we find that some of these groups act

00:40:00--> 00:40:32

Truly stopped making prayers. Right? They stopped making their prayers. And they decided they didn't have to submit them and validated the concept of the hereafter. Okay, so these are the poison coming into the Muslim world. Okay, what is the philosophy? How can this work? The philosophy is like this beautiful fruit, and you will see this lychee fruit, it's a good example of this. Because of the outside, it's ugly.

00:40:33--> 00:40:56

It's not smooth and beautiful if you just saw this link somewhere, especially if it got brown, you might not want to eat it, but you open it up. It's a beautiful, smooth fruit. So this is what they're trying to say that the literal text of the Quran and Sunnah, that's your skin, right? But the inside the beautiful part of the fruit.

00:40:57--> 00:41:03

That's the bottom. Okay, that's the inner secret knowledge. Okay, so

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

they immerse themselves

00:41:08--> 00:41:24

in the the inside knowledge. Okay, and they tried to claim that this inside knowledge, if we have enough, you don't even have to follow Sharia. You don't even have to follow, you know, Islamic concepts. Right? And

00:41:25--> 00:41:58

to do this, and again, this is the devil's deception of the button here. Look how complicated it is. And this is what we have to realize, because the attack on us today is it's complicated. And you can see the fake news that's coming out about Philistine and the fake news about Muslims Islamophobia, which is rising back to the surface again, and they complicated sometimes with the truth. And so their idea was to advance the inner knowledge, which released the person from obligation to Sharia.

00:41:59--> 00:42:22

Okay, that's what shaytaan was. Okay. And it was they want to cancel the requirements of Islam. Right was a way in which kit which comes with Islamic beliefs, and put in false concepts. And this spread to different parts of the world? Who would follow this? Get attracted gullible, uneducated people?

00:42:23--> 00:42:31

Somebody's gullible. They liked the long beard. Right? They liked the beautiful talk. Right? uneducated, generally.

00:42:33--> 00:43:26

And they invite the people, and they take them into this cult, where they can give you a special life. And they even would make it easy for you to be involved in immoral acts. Because remember, you're not following Sharia anymore. So that you can smoke drugs, right, you can have all types of bizarre sexual relationships. This also started creeping into the Muslim world. But above all, they wanted to create doubt in the minds of the people. And that's what the Chateau er the biller wants to do. So there's some specific groups for those who really want to get some look at the history who responded to this ignorant people. The descendants of the Persian aristocrats remember, they were

00:43:26--> 00:44:12

driven out by the Muslims, and some of them were Zoroastrians that's fire worshippers who came back. Right. And amongst these Persian aristocrats they wanted power. Right? And, you know, they needed they were arrogant. Right, and so some people who felt that they didn't want to follow anybody. Okay, they would join the group as well. The extreme Shia, I'm not saying the mainstream Shia, because there is a political form that just feels that they're protecting the family of the province on Sunday. Now, the extreme Shia curse companions who say the Quran is not complete, right? Those are the ones and people are confused about their religion.

00:44:13--> 00:44:50

Right and those who are depraved because there are some who would like the Muslim name, because there's benefits, but they still want to do immoral acts. Okay, so these are some of the groups who responded to this. Now, the most famous of these button near groups was a group called fatty meats. Okay, and that name comes from the daughter of the Prophet Solomon Fatima, but in the ninth century, a missionary Abu Abdullah Al Cena, she, he was from Yemen. And he called he said he was Al Bab, the door to the man D.

00:44:52--> 00:44:57

So he was the door to get you into the body. And he introduced his teachings, especially in North Africa

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

and his movement to

00:45:00--> 00:45:48

shape in Tunisia, present day North Africa. And its spread across North Africa and when east until they took control of Egypt. And we know that Egypt is the most important center in terms of numbers in terms of resources, and what are the most important the whole Muslim world, but in North Africa, that was the largest city that was coming together and people, the Fatimids took over this place. And they ruled it for for a period of time. They actually built many of the big buildings that you see Masjid. They even originally built Al Azhar University, surprisingly enough, so they did some good as well. But the problem was, they were extreme. And if you look at this map, that orange

00:45:48--> 00:45:55

color, this is the extent of their rule. They even at one point took over Jerusalem Mecca and Medina.

00:45:57--> 00:45:59

So this was serious now you see the body of Islam right.

00:46:00--> 00:46:14

And this is an extreme group who they believe that their leaders are divine, that Allah is in the leaders and one of the leaders and how can be amarilla they said Allah is in him.

00:46:15--> 00:46:18

Okay, so look at the schism that's there

00:46:20--> 00:46:21

right now.

00:46:23--> 00:46:32

But what will how can we umbrella made this claim? Everybody didn't accept it and one of his one of the people was Muhammad Ismail, a Tyrese.

00:46:33--> 00:46:35

He refused to accept

00:46:37--> 00:46:37

that

00:46:40--> 00:46:43

how can be a Manila, you know was divine.

00:46:44--> 00:46:45

And

00:46:46--> 00:46:56

excuse me, he Muhammad Ismail of darzee. He claimed that Al Hakim be amarilla was designed

00:46:57--> 00:46:58

for ultimate leader

00:46:59--> 00:47:15

and he was rejected. So at least the Fatimids didn't accept that. They wouldn't go that far. So they rejected him. And he fled and he went into the into Lebanon and his group because his name was Adonis z. So his group was called gurus,

00:47:16--> 00:47:24

gurus, and you will see the Druze groups up until today, in Lebanon, Syria, even in Palestine.

00:47:25--> 00:47:31

David fight for the Israelis, you'll see the roots look like Arabs look at the issue and the picture.

00:47:32--> 00:47:39

But they're not Muslim. They believe that their leader Mohammed bin Ismail had his own book and his own revelation.

00:47:41--> 00:47:45

Only their males are allowed to read that book. And

00:47:46--> 00:47:49

if you're not amongst the group, you are going to help.

00:47:50--> 00:48:05

It's an extreme. And it's considered by the Alesana outside of Islam. So this is not mainstream Shiism, that's still considered insight. This is thought to Nia. Right, this is the bar to near

00:48:06--> 00:48:07

who called the troops.

00:48:09--> 00:48:10

The 40 minutes broke

00:48:11--> 00:48:32

into sections. And after the death of the eighth Fatimid caliph, they're in Egypt. One group was called the Saudis. And the eldest son Nizar, and was Tallis because of his brother name was Danny. Okay. So the most startling is they went to Yemen.

00:48:33--> 00:48:44

And they remained in obscurity, hidden for 500 years, hidden in Yemen. And from Yemen. They went to Gujarat, India.

00:48:46--> 00:48:48

And you'll see them in East Africa now.

00:48:49--> 00:49:20

Later on, they changed their name but they came up by name of Bora. So the Baja people and you'll see in Toronto here we have bought a temples, okay, they don't pray like regular Muslims. You go into a bottle place, you know, they have tables that like they don't make salon. They don't practice mainstream Islam. Okay, so that's a button here. And they believe that God that Allah subhanaw taala is coming to the leader. Like he's like divine. Okay. The

00:49:22--> 00:49:25

the other group that is odd is they went to Syria and Persia

00:49:26--> 00:49:29

and from Persia, they moved into India,

00:49:30--> 00:49:35

in Ahmedabad and to Gujarat, and they became known as the Hoja.

00:49:36--> 00:49:59

Right. And they became very wealthy business people. And they did business along the trade routes, remember Bombay, or Mumbai, right? They were in the lowest Sindh of Pakistan, Zanzibar Kenya, all along east Africa and these routes there, and they change their name to the Ismailis. So this is the present day Ismaili group

00:50:00--> 00:50:21

that you will see in different parts of the world. And the leader is named Agha Khan and Agha Khan is considered to be part of the rich and the famous. But the teachings unfortunately, part of the teachings, they don't make a lot like regular slot five prayers.

00:50:22--> 00:50:34

They have some aspects of Islam. But for the most part, unfortunately, they're not really practicing Islam and they're considered to be outside of the Muslim world because they are so extreme

00:50:35--> 00:50:38

in their practice, okay. And

00:50:40--> 00:50:41

I want to

00:50:43--> 00:50:53

Well, let's let's go on because, you know, we want to try to cover as much as we can. Another group that developed is called parameter

00:50:54--> 00:51:42

and the kilometer in the ninth century they were in Kufa and the leader have done quite a bit. He was a botany missionary, and he organized his group and then he spread it down into Al Hasan, the eastern side of Arabia. Okay. And they were powerful at one point in time, the Arabs of Eastern Arabia, and they even conquered Mecca, and they stole the Blackstone. Look at this, they stole the Blackstone, and it was carried away to Assa. And it stayed there for 23 years and finally, the ambassador's got it back. Okay, so, strange things were going on amongst these groups, and this is another group for your own reference known as Kurata.

00:51:43--> 00:51:57

Okay, the other one, which is a very famous for those who are following different series about Salahuddin and the different new television programs. This is called the assassins are machine. And

00:51:58--> 00:52:00

they first appeared

00:52:01--> 00:52:03

in round 1072.

00:52:04--> 00:52:52

And from Fatimid, Egypt, they went underground and they formed the sect, and they went into fortresses. And their leader Hassan Saba, you know, became their leader, they believe that God was in him. And this was strange. And I remember the botany a concept because you're dealing with secret knowledge, then you can break Sharia. So his followers, he would get them in with hocus pocus secret information, and he has him smoke, hashish. That's what we're hashing. They smoke hashish. And they have beautiful women. And he says, if you follow me, as she said, opium is the addictive kind. If you follow me, and you kill what I tell you to kill, you will get Paradise And Earth if you die, you

00:52:52--> 00:52:54

get paradise and next slide.

00:52:55--> 00:53:45

Okay, so this is the group called the hash machine. And they were dangerous. And this is one of the pivotal moments that actually, you know, weaken the body of Islam, we have to understand this, when we understand the solution to the problem and how to stand up to these strange groups. Okay, so this is the hashing group. Without going into details, the word got translated into assassins. So the whole concept of the assassin hiding in your roof, and jumping down and stabbing you, and then stabbing himself, this came out of Hassan Saba, and his group in Parliament, which is high up there in theory in here. Okay, so this is the button. Yeah. It was a pivotal moment,

00:53:46--> 00:53:52

sticking a dagger into the side of the Muslim world. But there was a response.

00:53:53--> 00:54:25

And next week in sha Allah, in our upcoming class, we will look at the organized response. And that will be important as well, because Hamdulillah we bounce back. And that's the situation we're in today. We're in a deep situation now tragedy, inshallah we bounce back. And it's starting to come together in the Muslim world. So I want to open up the floor for any questions that anybody may have. concerning this topic.

00:54:30--> 00:54:32

One question I can see.

00:54:33--> 00:54:43

You're saying that, do we believe the Ahmadiyya Muslims, the prayer is different in their mosques? What should Sunnis believe, okay, the Ahmadiyya

00:54:44--> 00:54:59

in a sense, it could be called a type of button. Yeah, but it's not actually directly connected with these groups. But it is about an error in the sense that it is part of the lie of profits. And so these are people who claimed profit and so their leader

00:55:01--> 00:55:24

claimed, you know, to be you know, a messenger Mirza Ghulam Muhammad in India, right. This is like 19th 20th century India came to be a messenger. And it this is clear this is not something made up. It's well known. He said he was he was said he was in Mujaddid renewal of the faith. Ahmadi said he was Christ. And then he said he was the last product.

00:55:25--> 00:55:41

So Muslim scholars around the world gathered together and they declared openly that the Ahmadiyya movement are not in Islam. So they are not allowed to make pilgrimage to Mecca. They are not considered to be mainstream Muslims, even if they join, you know, they're

00:55:43--> 00:55:55

changed group called the Horus, even if they don't know, because you can argue with somebody over and over again. But a lot of these groups, in this case go to the leader.

00:55:56--> 00:56:34

And the life of Ghulam Ahmed is documented, his claims are document. Okay, so this is an agreed upon position. And no, they are they are not considered to be Muslims, although in their prayers, they pray. So like 100 feet, Pakistani Muslims, you might think they're Indian Muslims. But when you listen to their teachings, you will be shocked. And they're very aggressive against the people of the so they want to take us down in order to establish the leader, you know, as a final messenger of God, you know, or they have a lot of play on words that they have. So no, they're not considered to be

00:56:36--> 00:56:37

within Islam.

00:56:38--> 00:56:49

Questions floor is open for any other general questions that anybody has floor is open. And you see anything else? Other questions? Here?

00:56:53--> 00:57:26

Okay, so we're looking here, it says, Are all these movements part some of the Hadith, other talks about how the Muslims will divide into 72 sects? You could say that, you could say that they're, you know, broken into sex, because you're the process of them said, they will all be new in the fire except the one who follows me. You know, my companions, you know, and myself. Okay. So the Sunnah is the way out of these different groups.

00:57:27--> 00:57:31

Next question, Are all these movements? Okay, the question before?

00:57:32--> 00:57:46

No. Okay. My question is kind of off topic. What do you think about the idea of creating a Muslim punk political party to participate in Canadian? That is off topic.

00:57:47--> 00:58:12

Because we're not dealing with politics right now, in terms of, you know, Canadian politics, or American politics, know that this is not the subject of this class. May Allah help us in this confusing situation that we're in. But this is not this class. I'm not a politician myself. Because I tend to look at it as all state of not politics, but politics.

00:58:13--> 00:58:26

So we do need to tighten up our communities and to, you know, and to deal on a local level with those politicians who are dealing with us. Okay, and it could be from other parties as well.

00:58:27--> 00:58:34

But Allah knows best whether it's the right move to form our own party right now. I'm not a politician.

00:58:36--> 00:58:43

Okay, so, floor is open for any other general questions that anybody may have, you know, about this floor is up.

00:58:45--> 00:58:55

For those of you who are coming from America, this Botany of movement actually spread to America. And there is a group in America called the Nation of Islam,

00:58:56--> 00:59:24

Elijah Muhammad, and his teacher for Rod Muhammad, Frog, Muhammad was coming with beliefs, which appear to be Botany of beliefs. And that is why the concept of God being a man could come from him or larger being a prophet. These are Botania teachings. And you will see that they use the original group because the Nation of Islam has changed and for the most part come into Islam.

00:59:25--> 00:59:28

But in the first resurrection, that first group,

00:59:29--> 00:59:35

they didn't pray so lot like us, they sat down and read the Fatiha in English.

00:59:36--> 00:59:59

They didn't make Ramadan. And in the month of Ramadan, they fasted in December to be different than Christians. They made pilgrimage to Chicago instead of Mecca. That's a botany way of doing things. You see. So this movement, it still exists. And it's part of the reason why we're, we're this body but things are holding us

01:00:00--> 01:00:09

style. And it's very important for us to understand, you know how to come out of this and to hold on to the true you know, sunnah itself?

01:00:11--> 01:00:22

Yes. Again, you know, time went by and Elijah Muhammad passed away and his son was the Muhammad Rahim Allah He actually took the group into the summer.

01:00:23--> 01:00:34

Okay, so some tried to hold on to the old teachings, but for the most part Al Hamdulillah, the Nation of Islam people did what's called the second resurrection. And they came into mainstream Islam.

01:00:36--> 01:00:36

Okay.

01:00:39--> 01:00:44

And then, unfortunately, person is saying I was a victim of Dr. York,

01:00:45--> 01:00:55

and hamdulillah for his attorney. That's another group that was following botany teachings. He was called the Nubian Hansa movement. That was in New York.

01:00:56--> 01:01:44

And this is like, in the 80s 70s 80s Nubian group. Okay. Dear teacher was botany teaching says he had magic. He called them Dr. York and whatnot. So he called himself but he combined everything. That's a botany way of doing things. Alhamdulillah, his group fell apart. And then he became he changed. And I believe he's, he's in prison now. And his group totally broke apart. So there are other groups, there's another one in America called the Five Percenters. And they had broken away from the Nation of Islam. And they started there, the leader was called Allah. So that's extreme boutonniere. There. So these groups have appeared, not only in America, but in other parts of the

01:01:44--> 01:02:00

world, too, that you can go through a whole list of these false prophets there and you could even go into one of the teachings that I've done with it. islam.ca you could look at my course.

01:02:02--> 01:02:26

Sex, s eects, and groups and calls in Islam. So you'll go through the details, in that, we're looking at the pivotal moments to try to understand, you know, what has happened to us, and how we can come out of this. Okay, so yes, 5% nation, those of you who follow hip hop, in the early days

01:02:27--> 01:02:38

after the original Last Poets, people who were the originators of hip hop, Five Percenters became very famous. And they mentioned Allah and they mentioned different things, but it was botany teachings.

01:02:40--> 01:03:20

It led a lot of people to Islam and Hamdulillah. But we had to move on from that. Okay, they were very popular group in different paths, paths. But now, because knowledge is here, there's enough knowledge that these types of teachings cannot really take much hold, unless it's connected with drugs or gangsterism, but for most people, it won't, I have an effect, because knowledge is here. So Alhamdulillah we will be continuing on. I love this any other questions that we have? We're going section by section next week, we will see a response a pivotal moment

01:03:21--> 01:03:22
