Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Alhamdulillah. We thank Allah subhanaw taala for another opportunity to dig deep into Islamic history, to try to understand what had happened in the past in order to make clear what is happening today. And that is crucial about history itself that it is not merely an intellectual exercise, but it is understanding the experiences of the people who came before us, the living trace of human beings struggling in different time periods. And that gives us a type of kawaii some rules that we can live by in the present world today.
And so we are looking at the Muslim world the OMA as a body and within this body, as was predicted by the prophet peace and blessings be upon him. There was a breakdown and the main OMA the main body
Islam broke down into different sections. And the Prophet SAW Salem as we had learned before told us companions that those who lived after me, you will see many differences. But hold on to my sunnah. Hold on to my way and the way of the hollowfibre Rashidi stick to this, hold on to this, bite into it with your Molas make it the foundation of your life. And that inspiration
gave direction to the believers as they went forward. And we understood the reality of life, that human beings can choose between right and wrong. And although Islam is the perfect perfected way of life, the final revelation, the Muslims in all time periods, have to struggle with the egos with their material desires, with their tribal divisions, in order to overcome the obstacles that are placed in their path. And addition to this Toby's Iblees, there is the deception of the shaytaan. Well, yeah, they're below that he promised to do, from the beginning of time, to confuse people to come from around them, to make them change the creation of Allah. And so it was that even in the
time of the Prophet peace be upon Leia prophets appeared, just after his time, division started to come in. And it reached the point where a great battle ensued between two Muslim bodies, both on the right path, but they were divided.
Many lives were lost. It was a fitna, it was a trial, a tribulation.
But out of this, Islam continued, and Muslims were able to make their prayers too fast, to make the pilgrimage to die with the shahada of one God. And so Islam continued on with the struggles of human beings.
The original group, and I want to again, emphasize this point, what we call today, Allison now, well, Gemma, this is the people of the sadhna. This is the body, the main body of the believers. This was and still is, the overwhelming majority of the Muslims. Islam did not start as one group and suddenly break into two equal sex, one going to the right and one to the left. This is an exaggeration, that has been extended by the media, into the educational system, online and into the common thinking of the people on the ground. The reality is, when we look at Islamic history, we realize that of the many divisions, the most important one that we see is the division of the Shia.
And the concept of the Shia was not in the original teachings. And when the conflict happened between, say that Ali Rhodiola one and say that, um, wow, yeah. Rhodiola one. When the division happened, and the two parties were in conflict, the group of Malia was called Shia to Malia and the group of Ali was Shia to Ali. And this is the first time that Shia as a concept describing a group was actually being used up until that time. It is the Quran, it is the Sunnah. It is the consensus of the scholars.
It is the Islamic consciousness that is built by following these sources.
And so eventually when the fitna erupted, and Ali himself was assassinated, and his son and Hassan radiola, one was chosen by the Muslims not instated as a kingdom. He was he was put in by the Muslims, but in order to bring peace between the two warring sides, Al Hassan radiola, one gave over the Khilafah to Malia was legitimate.
It was accepted by the overwhelming majority of the Allamah of the companions of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. And so what was then Shia to Malia it became the government and it became known known as the Omega dynasty.
And so, she actually were the people who were supporting Ali Rhodiola one who had based himself now in Kufa. So Iraq was the political center of the Muslim world during the feed off of Ali and
The people in that area overwhelmingly supported the Khalifa
Ali Rhodiola. One was very clear in his understanding. And even when people started to aggrandized, they exaggerated in relating to him.
He completely rejected this concept. So we divided up Shiism. Again you see people say, Tasha, that is an Arabic or Shiites that isn't straight English. We're saying she ism. So it's all basically the same. But you can say that one group is the political form. And that is the group that supported Ali and they were opposed to oppression coming out of the Romanians, because the greatest mistake that wow we made after opposing Ali when he was Khalifa is to choose his son Yazeed. As the next ruler, he changed it from a falafel to milk to a kingdom.
And so he was opposed. He was opposed, not only by Hussein,
by the law one, but he was opposed by Abdullayev and Zubia. Ready ally one.
that was the political opposition. And so reliable Zubair ruling over 10 years in Mecca, and announced his own caliphate there, and was supported around the Arabian Peninsula has nothing to do with the Shia. But this is opposition to Yazeed. So the first thing we need to understand is that the opposition to Yazeed and the wrong choices of the Romans was not just something that was put forward by the Shia itself. But it was a general feeling amongst the companions of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. But in order to stabilize in order to keep the Muslim world developing, the Companions accepted, for the most part, the rule of the Romanians, except for the oppression,
especially in the assassination of Allah, Hussein and his family. And so out of this trauma, the trauma of the killing of Hussein, the people of Kufa, who had promised to support him, went into a strange mind set, toe or toe to Boone. These are the people of repentance. And so they went to Karbala, where Al Hussein was killed, and they wanted to repent, they wanted to do something in order to make up to this. So it was a traumatized period for the people, especially living in Iraq, and in the rest of the Muslim world.
In the time of the trauma, this is where the deception of the Shaitaan comes in.
And the evil one succeeded in deceiving individuals to deceive the royal family of the Senate's Persian dynasty, to try to come back and to seize power in the Muslim world, to also deceive the hypocrites amongst the Muslims, to deceive the people of the book, to try to oppose the last message. And coup for itself was always a bed of extremism, so many different cults and organizations. It was the homeland of a sack of magic that came out of Babylon. And so the next division in Shiism is what we call theological shields.
Political Shiism is the support of Olli to support the opposition to the Romanians, but the people were basically the same. Their prayers were the same. Their concepts were the same. Their beliefs were the same, but theological Shiism is where the trauma and where the evil acts of individuals and the shaitaan will either Billa succeeded in developing a type of theological expression based upon the opposition group, and extreme elements amongst the Iraqi Shia began to not only deify Ali Rhodiola one, but also
to attribute so leadership to his family, and to even curse our Baca and OMA Rhodiola one Houma for taking the rule away from him.
The former standards, the followers of delay, IB and Saba, they all came together. And we even see extreme forms of this extreme ideology
The case of his hockey but Muhammad Allah, who claimed that Ali was ALLAH, that he appears all the time. Sometimes he's a lesson. Sometimes he's Hussein.
It and it's saying here
we'll take a break for a slight moment is saying restart to install the newest
feature, I'll say remind me later. Okay.
Okay, so we'll continue on slight technical
glitch there and
the Shia to Ali,
the political Shia
continue to support the family and this support was
the protection of the family and the
support for the strong position of the Sunda that Ali Rhodiola. One had put forward. And this was followed by members of his family. And we find even a case where
Imam Zaid ibn Ali ibn Al Hussein, so this is the grandson, okay of Al Hussein
was opposed to the Umayyads as well. And he was being coaxed by the people of Iraq into a type of rebellion. And a group of these people again, this is the theological Shia coming in. They asked him to curse Ibaka and to curse Omar, he refused to do this. And when he did that, they left him.
And he said to them, referred to Mooney, you denied me and the name or rafidah
came forward and these were the extreme theological, Shia
rafidah Now take shape as a group, and the struggling Ahlulbayt Imam Zaid himself was eventually killed in the year 740.
They continue on, but the rafter itself then morphs into it starts to take a shape into what we will see, we will call the mammoth, and that is the twelvers yet naturally Shia, but the political Shia in taking a shape
turned into these idea. That's the followers of Imam Zaid, may Allah be pleased with him. And, again, there's a lot of names and I just want to just show you these names to reinforce what we are going in. We will repeat certain things for a purpose, because it takes time for this to really set in and for us to fully understand it. So you can see on the chart there is Ali and Fatima and that is the closest to a blood night because the prophets of salaam had no sons that succeeded.
And Al Hussein and Al Hassan Mohammed Eben Hunter fear.
When we look at the bloodline we see Al Hussein was given when Iraq was defeated when the Sassanid dynasty fell. The royal family, many of them were captured and shattered by knew one of the princesses of the royal family was given to Al Hussein as a right hand possession,
a bonded servant and he freed her and he married her. And so the children have held her sane and share bunu then carry the blood line of the Prophet SAW Salem and also the dynastic bloodline of the Sassanid dynasty. And so from that bloodline, we have Ali Zainul. Aberdeen, who is the the successor, the survivor coming out of the massacre of Al Hussein and his family, Mohammed Al baraka
and he would be the fifth and then you see next to him his brother, Zaid. So that's Imam Zaid. Again, he's coming from one Hussein's family. He refuses to follow theological Shia rafidah refuses to follow the rafidah Although he is a supporter of Ali and an opposition to their mates, following Muhammad Ali Baba is Jafra sodic and then Musa al Kadhim Ali Ryda Muhammad Taqi Ali Al Hadi, Hasan Askari
and Mohammed Al montado. Who is considered to be the MADI Imam Al Mahdi.
And if you look at the dates
The last of the 12 Imams died and 878 ad. So this is not a long time after the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him and when you look at the lives of the Imams who are basically the leaders of Ahlulbayt they were not a special organization or a special group, you will find that they were for the most part, practicing the Sunnah, meaning the way of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon the Zedi. She is today who inhabit mainly in Yemen. But they also appeared in the Caspian Sea region. That's Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan and parts of Iran and right around the kassiopi Caspian Sea.
They retain the political understanding that Ali should have been the Khalifa. However,
they reject many of the practices of the Shia. They reject Mocha, which is temporary marriage, although they did retain the Shia, Adan, and I will go into more details as we go on. Now, a very key point. Remember, the last Imam dies, he disappears 878 ad. So up until then, the Shia were not a large body, it was just small pockets, but especially in Kufa, and in Iraq, you see numbers that are there, but they are not united in a body because the Romanians were basically the dynastic power in Iraq and Syria, and throughout the Muslim world.
Hundreds of years go by,
and the 600 plus years, it was in the around the year 15 Or two ad that the software we dynasty
established themselves in Persia. And it's interesting because their leader Shah is my email was actually Turkish. And he embraced the teachings of Shiism. And with his power and organization, he succeeded in conquering much of what is now present day Persia. And he announced that the state religion would be the ignatia, the Shia, the twelvers, meaning those who follow 12 Imams of this year, the theological form of the Shia, this would be the state religion, and if anybody oppose this, they would be executed. So for the first time, now, we find the ignatia desea, taking a form a state form.
And this is important because people think, or they're made to think that the division was abused division from the early days of Islam. That's not the case. It is not really until this time that it nationally
or the 12 hours actually take a distinguishing form. And, again, because there are so many different peoples and factions, and there were so many schismatic groups that came out of Kufa and Baslow. And the Iraq area that we don't have time to mention some of the different groups that actually developed a schisms and sects and cults. But what's what is developing overall, in the theology of the ignatia, the Shia, and this is what is developed, especially in the Sufi dynasty, what we see is that
a type of theology is now developing. And this is where a person who is a Shia can look at a Sunni, this is the overwhelming majority and say, I am Shia, and you are the Sunni. That never happened in the past. And again, it was the area of Iraq. Some of his ideas went up into the Caspian region. Some of them went down into Yemen. You'll see eventually some in North Africa. But outside of that, the overwhelming majority of the Muslims all throughout the states in the north, DDD, the Chechnya and Dagestan and all the way through India and all the way to China. Down into South South East Asia, the Swahili coast of East Africa, across North Africa up into Al Andalus, Spain and Portugal
that was a great empire of a sub all of it is Sunday, across the desert into West Africa. All of it is sunny down into the Sudan into the Sahara region of Chad and and bought a new
at all of it is Sunday. So the overwhelming majority of the people of Islam, the Allison that well, JAMA, it is the main body of the believers. But the small group, concentrated in Iraq,
it Nasha, the Shia, and then taking a state form in Persia under this under Safavids.
Develop a theology. And these are some of the key distinguishing points of the theological ignatia. The sheer
number one is the concept of Imam it to is the concept dealing with the prophets, companions Sahaba. Three is their perspective on the Quran itself. Four is the concept of temporary marriage. And five is the doctrine of takia pious deception to simulation. And we want to look at these five areas. There are other minor points. But you could say that these are some of the more prominent theological divisions and again, the ignatia, the Shia, there are different levels of it. There are some who take extreme positions, but there are others who, again, have more that political form and not so much concerned in the theology. And so the dd The Alomar of Islam basically considered them
to be in the OMA and up until now the Ignacio the Shia,
make Hajj even though a llama of Arabia, who tend to be very strict when it comes to our Kedah. They accept the nationalists as part of the OMA and they make hajj and they make Omer, they are going to the blesseds sites. So now, let's look at the concept of the Laffitte. The Laffitte, meaning the Caliph or the Khilafat.
The Khalifa was the successor or the deputy representing Allah subhanaw taala on Earth, Vice Jarrett. So the who has stepped into the shoes of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. So this is a very important position. This is the head of the Muslim world. And it is not reserved to a special family. And that was the difference between the qualified Russia Dean and the Romanians were literally became a royal family. Three, that a person cannot decide I would like to be the Khalifa. And then he starts politically working towards this. That's not how it is done. The Muslim Ummah through Shura, that's mutual consultation, choose the most suitable person to be the Khalifa. And we
know from our traditions that if we could find somebody from the Koresh that is a suitable person that would be better for us, because that reminds us of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. And the Quran was revealed in their tongue
in Arabic language. Number four, is that the Khalifa he uses Shura where others have the right to disagree. And so it is not a dictatorship. It is not a king. It is a shorter system, where you have a leader who is an ultimate decision making based on consultation. And once the Khalifa dies or becomes incapacitated, his office does not pass on to his son.
And say that Ali Rhodiola one made that clear when they came to him after he had been stabbed. And they said, What do you say about Al Hasan? He said, I don't say yes, that you choose him. And I don't say no.
So he left it to the shoulder. And Al Hassan was chosen. Also the Khalifa the caliph is mortal. He is a human being, and there is no supernatural powers. That the person possesses this concept of the leader having a type of divine makeup being connected to the Sun God being connected to the powers of the universe. This is part of the ancient belief systems that you found amongst the Persians, the Romans, you found that amongst many of the the the Pharaoh and other Pharaohs of Egypt, in many parts of the world, that's not our concept.
The Quran establishes clear inserta who gerat first 13 in Chroma come en de la he at Koco that Verily the most honored amongst you in the sight of Allah
is the most righteous, that's the most honest not by blood. Because if it was by blood alone, I want you to think about this. The uncle of the Prophet, peace and blessing upon Abu Lahab
he had the noble blood in his vein, and yet he is burning in hell. And he's called the father of the flames. So the blood was not enough, and it is still not enough. In surah to Norris 55, Allah tells us that he has promised to those amongst you who believe and work righteous deeds, that he will surely grant them power in the earth, his stick laugh, he will grant them power in the earth, as he granted those from before.
He also tells us clearly to the believers are you who believe it Allah obey Allah, His Messenger, Wulan Omri minquan. So obey Allah and His messenger and those who are trusted with authority. And the prophets all Salim said here and obey no matter who is chosen as your leader. So that's the concept that we have of the craft. The sheer concept is something different. And again the word imam or Imam, it it is used in many different ways. There is the Imam which just leads people in Salat, there is Imam sometimes the head of our community or or the leader of a masjid. But in this case, the concept that develops through theological Shiism which manifests itself manifests itself in the
in the suffer with dynasty
in the 16th century, is that the Imam is designated by Allah. So this is not something that is by is by Assura. It is designated by Allah subhanaw taala. And Imam it is reserved for Ali and his progeny through Fatima.
So it's an automatic transfer to the eldest son, so whoever is the eldest son, that is surviving in this family automatically becomes the IMA. Also in this theological, she is the Imams are infallible and divinely protected, that means they don't make mistakes. Now, that of course, is going to put them different than the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. Because as a human being, he made mistakes, Abba Soweto, Allah and John Arma, that when the blind
Sahabi came to him, a delay, he found away from him he was trying to deal with Quraysh and Allah corrected him, it was a mistake.
But according to the Imam at concept, they are by so they are completely infallible. Also, in this theological Shiism form, the Imams are not ordinary human beings. But they are equal, you could say to prophets, not exactly the same, they don't use the word prophet for them. But in terms of their status,
you could even say in some ways, it's higher because some of their reports even say that the creation all the creation submits to the maps. So this is a high rank, to the point where they installed Imam it has one of the pillars of Islam.
We have our canon Islam
we have our five pillars of shahada so lot of the cat and fasting of Hajj they instituted Imam it as one of the pillars. And this was never there before the famous hadith of Gibreel alayhi salam, when he came to the Prophet SAW Salem and said, Tell me about Islam. And the Prophet SAW Selim gave him the five pillars, it is changed now.
So the Imam at then
is a different it's actually moving in to the level of almost being a different religion and those who go to the extreme
become almost like a different religion.
And on the authority of Mr. Barker, this is one of their books. Islam is based on five pillars on prayer fasting pilgrimage circuit, and Imam it
out of these, the most important and the pan and the preferred one is the belief in a moment.
So they took out the shahada in the beginning, and they put in a moment.
So, this is comes from their book
One of the Shia texts because they have their own tafsir and their own set of chains for Hadith. This is from ossola Caffee by Muhammad ibn yaku Halekulani. So this is a colonias one of their leading scholars. So what I'm bringing to you is basically coming out of their texts and is confirmed in their texts as well. Now, the sheer concept of the Sahaba or their loved one who manage money, now remember the Prophet Sal Sal remember what he said Heydo, Nas, corny, to Medina, your Luna home, tombola Deena yellow, not the best of people are in my generation. And then the ones that follow them, and then the ones that follow best people.
Many cases do not curse my companions, so many things that he said about, you know, his companions, but according to their concepts, and again, you'll get varying positions. But the most prominent is that the Companions, they actually gave up their Islam after the Prophet SAW Salem left, only met dad, Abu Dhabi, and sell metal fantasy that these three, they were still okay. But the rest of them, they gave up. And so the philosophy was illegitimate. So they believe that the first three Colophons Auerbach are all mine Earth, man, they were not they were illegitimate, they were not supposed to be put into the position, that there are proofs, and they actually tried to interpret different texts,
different historical factions to actually support what actually happened. So one of the, the groups made the statement and part of the model, they said, we're talking about the Sahaba, a, Han Amana are called a reseller, that they broke the trust,
their relationship with the Salah with with the prophet, and they deserve to be cursed. And so they will literally do Sep, they will curse the companions. Well, yeah, to be loved. And that is something that the Prophet SAW Selim was very strict upon, do not curse my companions, he said, In one tradition, because you will never give what they gave, even if you gave mount or hood in gold, you will never be able to give what they gave.
So this is a distorted look at the companions. And if you think about this, if the overwhelming companions, the best generation, if they basically broke the sacred trust, they deceived
the trust, they deceived the Prophet, then what is it for the rest of us Islam is finished. If that was our concept, then you can throw Islam in the waste barrel. Because if they can't make it, nobody can make it. So by taking this on, it develops a pessimistic, gloomy look at the whole of Islamic history that you'll see certain writers fall into
with this wrong concept. And unfortunately, because so many texts were written, coming out, with no verifications, you'll see this distorted concept of Islamic history also appearing
in terms of the Quran itself. The position of the Atlas sunnah, is that the text and the arrangement are based on Revelation. And so we believe that your BReel Alayhis Salam brought this right from Accra, right in the beginning of it,
and right through to the end to last, versus the arrangement actually is coming through to BReel Alayhis Salam, and that this is part of the divine protection
to is that we believe that the book is preserved in the hearts and the minds of the ummah. Alhamdulillah, from the time of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. They were not only people who wrote down the texts, in whatever form they could, but they were, it was a large body of companions, who committed it to memory.
And it was the leaders of this group that actually took the text themselves,
and put it together, checked it over, through what they had memorize, collectively, and that was very clear. And written copies were organized by the Khalifa with men ready, allow one and said to the capitals of Islam, and you'll find in the core answer to shorter verse number five
I saw Elijah, first number nine sir tokuyama
first 17 CIRTL, budaj Bell who are called Anand Majeed, Philo and muffled and, you know, this is a glorious code and you know, it's a preserved in a Preserved
Tablet. And so that is the position of the other Sunda that this is part of Allah's protection, that Allah said, We will protect this book, and we will be the ones who preserve it. The sheer position, the overwhelming position is that the Quran that we have right now is not the only divine book revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, Samson also
groups amongst them, and again, you won't get 100% because they have different factions in groups. But there are groups that believe that numerous verses are actually missing.
And there are some who believe that sequences in the Quran have been changed, chapters have been changed, and even deleted. And they brought a chapter called sorted Wilaya. And of course, this is the one that establishes the Wilaya or the rule for Ali Rhodiola. One being really Allah, that's what they put into the oven. So they say that this was taken out as well. Okay, again, that goes against the overwhelming memorization of the people designated by the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him to take the court and from them. And also the texts that were
that were put together. So we can see with this, that
the, the concepts
that are developing now is literally taking us in a stream,
the main stream of Islam. That is the position of the Allah sunnah. Well, Gemma, this is the overwhelming body of the Muslims. And again, Islam it spread to the four corners of the earth. Muslims had gone within 100 years to the Atlantic Ocean. And if you went to the Atlantic Ocean, you would find them in Morocco, and also in Portugal in Spain called Al Andalus. They were Maliki in fact. And they were very strong lovers and practitioners of the Sunda. If you went down across the Sahara Desert,
into the lands of West Africa, you will again find 100%
and asunder Well, Gemma
across North Africa and the Sahara. You will find in the Sudan, overwhelmingly, you will find Alexandre Wajima. And we'll study a faction that develops later on. That happens in North Africa.
But far to the north, in what is now Chechnya, and Turkmenistan and Dagestan and those regions in the north MA in access what is beyond the access River? Alexandre? Well, Gemma, those who even made it into China.
And some of the companions and Tabby even made it on the Sunda, well, Gemma
those who eventually made it down into Southeast Asia and there was some coming into parts of India on the Malabar coast, down into Indonesia. I listened to well Jabba carrying it all the way around in Southeast Asia. This is all the Sunnah. And it is only pockets, small pockets. That is in Iraq and eventually some in Yemen. And in North Africa, you will find
what is known as the shear so this is not a major split or a major division. But because of the impact of individuals because of the impact that comes out of it. And again, what the shear what theological Shiism did is that it opened up the door. Political Shiism, supporting the and the the anger debate, did not change the practice of Islam. It did not change Arcada it did not change the concept of the caliphate. It did not change the concept of the Quran. It did not change the concept of the sahaba. But the logical Shiism now begins to bring in different concepts and
The swirling debates and the swirling groups that start to come in, especially in Iraq, in the area of Kufa, the door is now open
for other concepts to come in.
And this is where you see in the development of Islam, you then see that the great imams are developed the schools of thought, you'll see that the Hadith books are, start to be collected. And you'll see that
the, the, the authenticity, even of the hadith is protected and surprisingly enough, if you look at modern day, Iran, Persian area and look at the Hadith scholars, Bukhari and Muslim Ibn magia, autonomy, the look at the major Hadith scholars, they all come from Persia.
So it is not necessarily a thing that comes out of Egypt or Arabia or Syria. Some of many of the main Hadith scholars came out of Persia. And so that means that the Persian area in the first few 100 years of Islam was solid sadhana. Even that area was solid Cinder. And it was not until the 16th century, when the Safavids came in. That it naturally, concepts are put into state rule. The constitutions that they develop mean that they somebody from the international issue must rule the country itself.
And so the door was open. And what develops out of this is another sect, which becomes one of the most dangerous groups in the history of Islam.
And that is the esmaeili sect.
we will be going over this in more details. But remember the Imams that were coming in Ali was the first and then al Hassan right and then Al Hussein and then Ali
Zainul RB Deen Muhammad Baca, that is coming down to Imam jofra sodic. Now remember your mom jofra sodic
was a companion of Imam Malik. He was loved by the people of Medina. And it was not in a different culture in a different group pray in differently than everybody else know. They knew each other they were very close to each other in Medina itself. But he was the elder member of the debate and was given the authority to protect and to represent the debate and normally the oldest son would then take over his oldest son would have been Ismail
but as my yield died in the year 760. AD
Jaffer sodic then
passes away. And so it's my yield would have been chosen
as the 70 ma but he passes away and Musa al Kadhim was put into place as a 17 month so in the ignatia, we'll go over this to show you it in a little bit more details. The ignatia The concept that is coming. You find that is my yield is not in there. Musa al Qaeda
but this the the the the followers of Ismail, who thought he should have been seven but he passed away. They chose his son to then take over.
So Muhammad so then they accepted Muhammad, the son of Ismail as the 70 Mom, and a branch starts to develop different than the internationally.
But their Imams lived in disguise. And this concept of Tapia of takia. And I had mentioned that earlier that is pious deception, because of the struggle that was going on with the Romanians, and then later on with the Bassetts who sees power after the Romanians. The struggle with the debate and sometimes oppression of the Ahlulbayt the political Shias and the ones protecting the family. They had to go underground.
And so to protect their lives, they even developed a type of disguise or a pious deception, and they took it to the level the extreme was that you could literally lie to somebody of the Sunda and you lytic literally getting blessings for this.
And so that was an extreme position.
and the door is wide open now.
And what enters the scene opens up one of the most dangerous time periods in terms of the breaking away internal divisions within the Muslim history, and that is that Abdullah ibn Mamoon al Qaeda,
an occultist who died in 825. He became the chief missionary and idealogue of the Ismailis. Remember, now, the group that didn't accept Musa al Kadhim has number seven, they wanted to smile and they took his son and then below, but this person who comes in
he is coming out of Iraq. Now remember, that is the base of magic. And so he comes in, he is a known occultist. So he is a magician, a person who's dealing with signs and numbers and, and telling fortunes and all type of secretive type of
your designs. And he taught strict concealment.
And he went underground and bustle and solid media in Iraq. And what he developed was a secret society based on gradations. And in order to join the society, you had to be initiated.
And there were secret rituals. Sounds familiar, right? Because when you look at the Crusades when the Europeans are coming in the crusades, and they run into the Ismailis, and those of you who study the history, you will see, you know, sometimes unity happening between the Smiley's and the Crusaders against the Sunnah.
The culture of Islam starts to affect Europe, of course, because Europe at that time, was living in its dark ages. And so what develops is secret societies, the Knights Templar,
who were paramilitary knights, you can see directly, they are affected by this secret society initiation, grades, gradation, secret rituals, and they literally are the base of the free
Masonic rituals and mace Freemasonry. So those of you who are into this, you can see a historical base.
There is my elite group, cult, they chose number seven, as their sacred number. And again, this goes back to the numerology of the past seven isn't a very important number, and we see it coming in seven heavens and seven Earths. And you know how important number seven is. But for them, it was a sacred number. And they were even called after this, the seven, seven Iya. So the one group is ignatia, the twelvers and then is the sub iya, which believe in the seven Imams, not the 12th.
So I want to briefly take you through just to try to consolidate some of this in your minds.
The genealogical chat
and we're going to go back slowly. And we look at remember, the lineage of the Prophet SAW Salem Quraysh going back Qusay. Remember Abdullah's abdomen after dark? Now remember Hashem coming from abdomen F from Hashem, is Abdul Muttalib. Right from optimal talent. He had his many sons. There is Abdullah, from Abdullah, there is Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem. That's the line of Banu Hashim. And you can see that we may it's now coming on the other side. It's still Kurdish, and Abu Talib side, appeal Jaffa and Ali. So, according to the Shia, the first imam who was designated by Allah to be the ruler of Islam was Ali. That's number one.
Now Ali marries Fatima. There's no sense. So the closest blood line is then coming through Ali and Fatima. From him comes the second imam who they consider to be Al Hasan the third Imam Al Hussein and then from Al Hasan
as we will speak about later, there are the resuts This is very interesting too. Because the royal family in Morocco they claim to be Ahlulbayt but their connection is through an Hassan and that is the Idris it's and they were based in Fez
In North Africa, so going back to the ignatia it setup the fourth was Ali Xena Labadi. The fifth the mom was Muhammad Al baraka and remember Zaid now and Zaid refused to accept the illogical Shiism
and he broke away, still struggling against the roommates. That's the Ahlulbayt the political Shiism, so he's not considered one of the Imams of the ethnicity. Okay, number six is jofra sodic.
Okay, and number seven is Musa al Kadhim. I remember Ismail would have been the Imam. There are reports also to say that Imam Jaffa did not choose him because he had some character problems. Some reports say that he actually drank alcohol and again, we're not sure of all of these reports, but for whatever the reason is, although he was the oldest son, he was not clearly designated and then he died. So Musa al Kadhim took over as number seven.
But it's my release now. Their group breaks away and starts their own separate area, which we will see develops later into the Ismaili Fatimids of Egypt.
So going back to the ethnicity on your left, Alia read on number eight, Muhammad Taqi nine, Ali Al Hadi 10 Hasan Askari 11, Muhammad Al Monteggia, 12. And again, he dies in 878. And according to the internationally belief,
he was being attacked by the acids. And he crawled in as a young man crawled into a type of sort of DAB and a closed area in the back of one of the
masjids. And he is a cult he is alive.
And in many other reports, they believe He is ALIVE and He will come back as Imam Al Mahdi.
But look at when he died.
We're in 2021. And this is 878 that he that he died, or he went into an occult state. So all of those centuries, and he's still alive, we have nothing to support this coming out of the Quran, nothing from the Sunnah. And if something as important as this was to have occurred, the Prophet SAW Salem would have mentioned it, because he was not allowed to leave out important information such as this. So this is a general flow
of the major internationally Breakaway,
which forms this theological Shiism, and opens the door for many other schisms and isms and sex to now start to develop the largest of witches, the Ismailis. And it opens up the door to Alberta ninja. And these are the people of the occult. These are the people who take it to a level that even it naturally consider them outside of Islam.
So we want to look at this and how it develops, but the door was open.
So we want to stop here at this point, continuing our flow. And again, as in the past, if there are any questions that you have,
you can put it in the chat. And we'll take a few moments to field your questions. If you have anything
coming in, in terms of this information, again, I will be repeating and going over certain concepts so that you can get a flow to it and then start to understand it
and it'll help you as a guide. And these names that you see will be coming up. But now things will come clear to you because you have the history. So do we have any questions are coming so far? So if you
didn't have a question right right now, I want you to write it down. And to put it if you can into the Facebook or put it in the chat, keep it for next week because we will be going on not physically next week and this is another announcement. Because next week inshallah there is no class I will be out of the country inshallah. The following Tuesday, the class will resume.
Okay, so next week, no class, the following week, week, inshallah.
We'll be back to continue
with Alberta, Delia, to look at the real secret of cults that bring on something unprecedented in Islamic history. So I leave you with these thoughts and I pray that Allah azza wa jal would bless all of those who stood for the Sunda who died for the Sunnah, and all those who are coming and bless our children and this world with a clear look at Islam, to drink from the fresh water of the Quran, from the fresh water of the Sunnah, and to help us to live and die in this way. I leave you with these thoughts. And I ask Allah to have mercy on me annual aka Dawa and on Hamdulillah he would have been Alameen wa salam aleikum. Wa Rahmatullah he got a cat
