Okay, hold on a cello Tala
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Hamdulillah, Bilal Amin SallAllahu Taala Allah Allah says him was Celine. While he was happy with radical salah. Or praise the due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds peace and blessings be constantly showered upon our beloved prophet, Muhammad, his family, his companions, all those who called whose weight established his sunnah to the Day of Judgment. My beloved brothers and sisters to our friends to our viewers, Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah.
We have come to the end of this series, looking at one aspect of the major issue of the Muslim world breaking into groups. And we looked at it from the point of view of the Sunnah. We looked at it, or we tried our best to look at it from the point of view of the first three generations because the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was reported to have said the credo NAS colony formerly Duma Latina, your Luna home, toma, Latina, your luno the best of people are in my generation, and then the ones that follow them, and then the ones that follow them. And so that first generation were believers, Allah described them as Muslimeen meaning Mazzini
there was no Sunni as we know it today and Shia as we know it today.
There were no hana fees and Maliki's and hand bellies and Sharpies. There was no tab Levy's quantity, seller fees, Sony's Sophie's, there were none of these groups. They were believers. They had different approaches to the faith, based on their personality, or based on the gifts that Allah azza wa jal had given to them. But they saw themselves as complementing each other.
And that is so important, that if Allah gives a person an ability to struggle and fight, he has a warrior. That does not mean that the Warriors are the only leaders in Islam. If another person is an intellectual, he's really good with the books. That does not mean that the intellectuals are the main teachers are the main pillars of the faith. And with all the aspects of life, it is like the human body that has different parts. And all of the parts make up the one beautiful complete body that we call LG Oma. And so when we speak of Allah Sonowal Gemma, we are speaking about swaddle Adam, the the the mass of the Muslims, who were following the Quran, and its main interpreter. Its
main example Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, who was described as the walking core.
that basis gives us a type of worldview. It also gives us an ability to know whether somebody is going off the path or whether they are on the path. And this is not to say that people's theories and concepts have no weight and should not be recognized as theories and concepts and religions. But we're talking about submission to the will of Allah subhanaw taala. We're talking about the way of the prophets and those who follow the ways of the prophets, especially in the way of the last prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. It is a clear way. And the Prophet SAW Salem was reported to have said taarak to come Almohad shuttlebay la Lu hochanda Hadiya La Jolla z one Illa
haddock I have left you on a clear way. It's night is like it's a day and nobody will go away from this except somebody who is about to be perished to be destroyed.
And so the clear way. So rotten musta came,
sometimes very difficult, sometimes which is is surrounded by hateful things. But that is the test and the challenge of this world.
But as the Prophet SAW, Selim said, there is Serato, Mr. Payment, he drew a line. And then he drew little lines. And he said, these are the small paths that come off the main path, and is a shaytaan on the head of each one of them.
And so, we have been looking at these breaks that have happened in the OMA major groupings, clear individuals. And as the Prophet SAW, Selim said, there will be 30 Leia prophets who would come.
And so we are looking at
some of these liar prophets, the ones we can clearly identify, Allah knows best, how many more there were, or how many will still be to come. But it's important for us to be able to clearly and emotionally distinguish between what is clearly Serato must Akeem and that which is another path. And so with this, we are moving through the liar prophets. And we recognize that the liar prophets do not just lie, but they are people of the lie. They live in an illusion, which becomes a type of delusion, they're deluded. And within their bubble within their sphere of existence. They look at themselves as having perfection.
They have visions of grandeur.
And their followers get caught up in their charisma
and lead astray.
And so, in looking at these false constructs, and these false individuals that have come,
we go into the 20th century. And that's something that might sound strange to people because you would think that the liar prophets that come would be like Musella, Alka dab, that they would be, you know, Arabs who have a beard and have this, you know, strange clothing on and very devious and something nothing to do with the secular world of today. But this type of delusion, comes in all shapes. And it comes in all forms. And so this particular form that we are looking at is a strange one to a lot of people.
Because for a lot of people who look at number 21, Rashad Khalifa,
they would look at a successful man,
a clean shaven, affendi man,
Egyptian origin, and oneness and engineer with the American flag and back of him with a bright smile, who has made it in the life of this world. And you would never connect him with somebody who would lower himself to the point where he would enter into Islamic thought, and actually try to lead the people astray.
Rashad Khalifa is a strange individual. And looking at his life, he was born in Egypt, November 19th 1935, his father was a Sufi leader of tariqa, Sofia. And it is said that he had 1000s of followers. And we know that on the path of the soul off, there are those who respect the Sharia. And there are those who go outside of the Sharia. And Allah knows best. But this is sort of the background that he came in.
And which, if it is taken the wrong way, can can lead to that concept of the Botania. Remember the button here now these are the people who look at faith as having an external part, and an internal part of VA here, Will Barton.
And so the Botania people say that the Sharia is really on the outside. But the essence is on the inside is like that beautiful fruit that sometimes comes with a rough skin. That's the taste. That's the sweetness. And so
as an individual in terms of his education, and in terms of the life of this world, he was very successful. He obtained on a degrees of AI in chumps University in Egypt. He emigrated to the United States in 1959. And he got a master's degree in biochemistry
stream from Arizona State University, PhD from University of California.
He became a naturalized citizen. He lived in Tucson, Arizona.
And Arizona is a very organized state, people living very well out there. And Rashad Khalifa, he worked as a scientific adviser. So he was a science advisor for the Libyan government for a year. Then he worked as a chemist for the United Nations industrial development organization.
Then he worked as a senior chemist in Arizona State Office of chemistry in 1980. And we have to realize coming out of the 70s, and going into the 80s, that science was very much tied in with the Internet. And the level that the internet took science is amazing. And so many times you will find within the the chemistry area, those who are very proficient in the internet, and have the ability to work the computer and to analyze different areas. So Rashad Khalifa was one of these individuals.
Allah knows best what actually happened to him. In terms of his relationship with Islam,
we know that he's coming out of a background and mystical background, although he's very secular person in his outward appearance. But he had this desire in him, possibly driven by his father, the fact that his father was a leader, who had many followers. And so his organization, his people say, within their writings that with much of his own money, because he was well off, he founded with other individuals, he married an American woman. And he founded a group called United submitters International, the USI.
they didn't want to use the word Muslim. So generally, you would see the United Muslim organization, they say, No, they don't want to use the terms Muslim or Islam. So they used the equivalent. So a Muslim is a submitter. Because technically speaking, the word Muslim coming from Islam, or is this lamb
is submission. So it's submission, surrender to the will of Allah.
And so technically speaking, a Muslim is a submitter, one who submits to the creator and Islam his submission.
So as a tactic, which he thought was a dour tactic to spread the message, he used this terminology and he didn't use the word Qur'an. He called it the final Testament with the intention of relating to the New Testament and the Old Testament testament of the people of the book. So
he began to make claims and the actual timings of the claims it's hard to get exact months as to how it came about. But basically speaking,
he said that he was the messenger of Allah.
And he said that the Ark Angel Gabriel, most assertively told him that chapter 36, Surya seen verse three of the Quran was referring to to him in Naka, liminal mursaleen, that surely you are from the messengers. So somehow he got some kind of Revelation, or you'll have this is the type of spiritual calling, it could be a possession, actually, because we see in the case of Hussein Lima, and many of these false prophets, that it is the sheetala Yeah, the biller who was at the gym, that comes to the individual inspiring them with these strange thoughts, and his followers referred to him as Allah's Messenger, and that he was the messenger of the covenant. And so it was a strange distorted form of
I witnessed this myself personally. And this is when I was serving as imam in the Jami mosque
in Toronto, and we would get literature from around the world. And I got some pamphlets that came out of Arizona, and it was from his group the submitters, and he was making claims that he was the greatest prophet of all of the messengers.
And he cursed down individuals check bed baths of Arabia and, and other people he cursed people who made
If that was against him or who did not believe in his message, and his methodology, you could say is the called anti human. The Quran lists and this is a movement or you could say it's a it's an approach
to Islamic faith, which is based upon using the Quran itself as the main source. And within this karate Yun way they reject the Hadith and the Sunnah. So they say that these are fabrications there lies attributed to Muhammad much later by scholars. And of course, there's a lot of different discussions about Hadith and no doubt that even within Hadith literature, you had Bukhari himself, the great Muhaddith, who developed Sahil Bukhari and develops a methodology as well as other scholars to weed out the false Hadith from the authentic Andes. And because he was so serious that when he when he looked for a person, who would be on his chain of narration, a reporter, he would,
in some cases, hide and watched how the person lived. And it is said on one occasion, he hid in the forest. And he looked, and he saw this individual coming, and wanted to bring his goats and sheep to the house. And so he took an empty vessel. And he told me how to how to how to how come. And they came naturally, because they thought it was food, but there's actually no food inside of it. So because he then said, This man can lie to his animals, then he can lie to us. We don't want somebody like this. That's not pure enough. That's not honest enough in the individual. So you can see how serious are Buhari was watching checking the people to see, did this person actually live in the
time of the one he claimed to receive the message from day so they were very precise, and developed a system. So definitely within the Hadith literature, there's problems. But there are those who enabled us to come out of the problems. And we recognize that the Quran itself that is the ultimate message from Allah subhanaw taala that we believe is in its original state, and the Hadith of the Kabbalah, and later,
we need to check them.
he started to make prophecies. So one of the major prophecies coming out is that God would send his messenger of the covenant
have to all of the prophets have come to this world. And after all of God's scriptures have been delivered. So this is this concept of the messenger of the covenant. It's a distorted concept. But it's a concept that some people have Tafseer and of course, Russia does his position. So what he was saying is that have to all the messengers are gone, that this messenger would be a consolidating messenger, whose mission was would be to confirm all existing scriptures, and purify and unify all existing religions into one submission. And of course, that is Islam.
And according to his Tucson masjid, and this is a quote which comes from their website.
They say this is the claim that they make Rashad Khalifa is that messenger of the Covenant, the one specified in the Quran to come after Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. And
you'll see this coming in chapter three, verse 81,
in chapter 33 733 40, also biblical sources, and they will even quote from the Bible, because they saw themselves doing Tao. And so you go to Malikai, three, one in 21, Luke 1722, to 36 and Matthew 24 to 27. And you'll also see this concept being mentioned. So give you an example of it. And saw Ali Imran verse 81.
You'll see that it says, Remember,
when Allah made a covenant, look at the huttner mythique. So when it talks about that we made this misac Remember when Allah made a covenant with the prophets, saying, now that I have given you the book and wisdom, if that comes to you a messenger confirming what you have, you must believe in him and support him.
Did you confirm this covenant and accept this commitment? And they the messenger said, Yes we do. Allah said, then be a witness. And I too am a witness. Now, the Mufasa is show us that this messenger is Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, because he came as the seal of the Prophets and Messengers Katima and via he were more Sunni.
And he did not come to the Arabs. He did not come to a specific nation linguistic group, but he came to all of humanity. And we see that in Israel and Mirage that the Prophet SAW Selim when he went on his night journey, from Mecca to Jerusalem,
one of the Divine Blessings is that he prayed with the prophets. So the prophets actually prayed with him in the spiritual setting, their emotional Uppsala, in Jerusalem, he was Imam Ambia. He was the Imam of the prophets. And so he is the prophet, the messenger of the covenant.
This is the final covenant, covenant of de resurrection.
But Rashad Khalifa, he said, That's me.
And Malikai three, one is a New International Version. It says in translation, I will send my messenger who will prepare the way for before me, then suddenly, the Lord, you are seeking will come to his temple, the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire will come, says the Lord Almighty.
So it's speaking about this messenger of the covenant. And this is what Rashad Khalifa
was referring to, when he's talking about himself.
the evolution of this, again, comes in strange ways. And people are trying to put it together, especially his followers, whatever is left of his followers. But he really makes a major change back in around 1968. And this is when he was working on a new translation of the Quran.
He felt that the pictometry pick tall translation, that the use of Ali translation that these were in Old English, and that they were outdated. And some of the concepts in them were also outdated. Because remember, he's Khurana Yun. Right? So he doesn't want anything too much referring to the Prophet himself. Right? So but he felt that these are not right. And so he wanted to make his own
translation, something, which in a sense, could be more useful for Americans, I know, part of what he was doing was instead of saying thou art, he would say you are, he's putting in a language that's more local.
computers, very early stages are starting to come in.
And he's on a high level of science now. And he's dealing with this computer technology in the early days. And in 1974,
he claimed that he had discovered a mathematical code in the text of the Quran involving number 19.
The details of this analysis are available in his book Quran, the final testament. And so this number 19 theories.
This is really where he starts to make his claim.
Okay, and he had a type of charisma about him.
And many Egyptians have this and again, this is coming out of tariqa. So they have a type of mystical charisma. So he carries it with him. And he claims that he is the man
and his words became sacred to his followers.
And he wrote that a chord and contains a mathematical structure
based on the number 19.
And he made the controversial claim that the last two verses of chapter nine in the Quran will not legal canonical, telling his followers reject them. So now he's really overstepping his bounds and he's saying, you can't use the last two verses insert the Toba
is twofold reasoning was that the verses in addition to disrupting an otherwise flawless 19 bass pattern. They were sacked religious in as much as they appeared to endorse the worship of Muhammad
So he had this concept which we'll talk about a little bit about his whole thing of 19. Everything's in 19
The bus Mala, the Bismillah it's made up of 19 letters.
If you divide 114
You know, you will see that it comes in patents of 19. And this is something it is strange, because 19 is not a normal number, but he really overstepped his bounds. And this is really where he started exposing himself. And people start backing away, you know from his claims, because the oft repeated beautiful verses of the Quran were allowed saying Bismillah matter aime?
La caja, come Rasul Ludeman unfussy come Aziz en la Hema under
hurries son array can build meaning or offer Rahim for interval low for call SP Allahu La Illa Illa La ilaha illa Whoa, la he to a Cal to a horrible action Ali. And so these oft repeated verses, which you know is saying Yo for Cole has to be Allahu La Isla Illa Whoa,
And these verses are saying, there certainly has come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. He is concerned by your suffering, anxious for your well being and gracious and merciful to the believers. But if they turn away, then say Allah is sufficient for me. There is no god except Him. In Him, I have put my trust, and he is the Lord of the great throne. This powerful verses, but what it's saying here, where describes Rasulullah saw Selim, it is saying, Bill, me Nina, roofer Rahim that he has roof, and he is Rahim. So these are descriptions of Allah or names of Allah.
And according to his theory, when you look at the best Mullah that, that these different sections, the four parts of the Bismillah r Rahmani Raheem, are repeated in the Koran 19 times.
So that would be a problem here. Because Rahim is here and if that's here, the numbers off. Secondly, he tries to say how can the prophet be described as Rahim?
So he's making this attack again, upon the Prophet Sol center. And we recognize that when Allah is saying our rough man Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
He's saying that he is
most gracious or rough man. And that is something that nobody can take the name of.
But a Rahim the quality of Rahim can be taken by people. And you see in certain sort of stuff. You know, it's actually saying when it's talking about the believers Rahama baina when it says that they have mercy on each other. So Rahim, a person could say for land Rahim.
Ali Rahim Ali is a merciful kind of person. But you know, but you don't say it in a sense of odd Rahim
in the sense of a name of Allah so you can see even in the verse it's not saying r Rahim. It says Rahim. So just a description. That was a problem for him. Because threw off his his number system. And then also, it is over a grand dicing Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. And as a liar, Prophet. He didn't like this because the court le Yoon, they want to have the Quran only by itself as the main text of Islam.
And once you do that, and you nullify the Sunnah, and remember those false prophets who came in the past, when you nullify the sooner you open up the way for a new Sharia.
And what the liar prophets do, is that they insert their own concepts, their own Sharia in the place of the Islamic lifestyle based on Quran and Sunnah. They will cut it out, which gives them license to do what they want to do. So that's a very similar methodology. And, and for those of you who say, No, he's not a messenger. I witnessed this myself.
I'm an eyewitness. I received many messages from his center.
And they claimed he was the messenger of Allah. He was the messenger of the covenant, greater than all of them.
messengers who came before
the those who came before, they need to make a big sense to him.
They need to recognize him, you know as this final messenger of the covenant, now, the basis of this his bus Mala,
the Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in the Name of Allah, most Gracious, most Merciful. He said it has 19 letters. Now, look at this, if you can see the screen, you know, for the layman, if you look at it, it says BISM
bismi. So, that's boss seen me that's three right? Then Allah 4567.
Okay, then a rap man, eight 910 1112 13 I'd Raheem 1415 1617 1819.
So, from the outside, it looks like it has 90. But really we know that in many cases, Arabic is written in a way that that makes it easy to read through. Sometimes the the color or the or the Hamza is smoothes. So in this case, we say Bismillah. We don't say Bismillah. But actually it's be Ismaila ism.
So that's, that's a letter. So that's not 19. That's 20. And you can also say, when you say a ramen, that LF MK Sora the line going straight up that LF MK Sora is really an lf you could write that with a meme and an LF, and then a noon, but they did it like that
to to you know to make it flow easier.
So his whole premise is wrong, right from the beginning. This this more than 19 letters in the Vespula.
And the number of sores in the Quran
is a derivative of 19.
Okay, that's strange, strange, but the sine of 19 in the Quran, when it's speaking about the fire,
and you'll see it in chapter 74 Verse 30, when it talks about the angels are they ha Tissa Tasha
that guarding Hellfire is 19 meaning 19 Angels and that described further on in chapter 74. So
he comes with the theories. Sometimes he is correct. And he found some startling things. Some because even if you take 114 chapters and you divide it by 19, that's six. So that is strange.
but his problem is that AR Rahman AR Rahim. 57 times
Okay, 57 it's 19 times three. But the problem is, you know, that that's that's there and that's strange. But AR Rahim. Now you got Rahim coming in at the end of Surah Toba and that's a problem for you. So he's got to nullify the Quran.
Okay, classical liar, Prophet, methodology.
And, but his his work
was astounding in the sense that it was coming out with the the coming of the computer age. And so here he is showing these multiples appearing and no doubt there are some letters and there are some names that appeared
in multiple ways. And
he tried to use this to say that this is his great blessing. He said the messengers have miracles, no Alehissalaam he was saved from the flood. Ibrahim alayhi salam was thrown in the fire and the fire was made cool and peaceful for Ibrahim Musa alayhis. Salam was was was saved from the Fairholme the water opened up. So many miracles isa lei Salam was securing, making the blind to see and curing lepers.
Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah had the miracle of the Quran. He also cured people of wounds and diseases and so many things so many miracles happen to Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings. He said, So the prophets have miracles, but I have my miracle. And my miracle is the computer.
So he's the false prophet of the 19. He's the Prophet of the computer
For the computer age.
And then of course, he says, The Quran is bearing witness to this to him. And he mentions verses out of context to refer to him again, classical false prophet methodology. And so this is a strange individual, this affendi man who's dressed, you know, with his suits, clean shaven American flag, and back of him, is claiming to be the greatest of all of the prophets. That he's literally the one who is confirming them.
Without him the messages are really false. So this is a massive claim
that he was making.
And his organization, the submitters,
not Muslims, they didn't call themselves Muslim submits. And they follow only the Quran do not mention Muhammad in the shahada of salaat. So they even took out Muhammad Rasul Allah.
That's the level that they went to.
And so this, of course, was a strange thing and brought a strange reaction from the Muslim world to this, who is this person
who gives him the authority to take verses from the Quran?
Who gives them the authority to take apart the Shahada? And surely he finds he falls into the list of new Salema. And all of the liar prophets, who came throughout history. Now you remember when we saw some of the liar prophets, and you see it coming in? We saw interesting examples in West Africa.
When we saw at the time of Murabbi tune,
that they were actually adding things to the Shariati, we're subtracting things and this is what the liar prophets will do. We found even a nation of Islam, that they were not making Hajj to Mecca, they are really the same as they was to Chicago. They fasting in December, not in the month of Ramadan.
So you see the license that these people take in this delusion. Now in his Sharia,
he says the Qibla to go facing Mecca, it's south east. So he used a flat map. And he said, if you follow the flat map, that it's south east.
Okay, now we know that the Earth is a circle. Again, it's a scientific discussion, but the Earth is round. And so we really, if you put a string around the globe to Mecca, you'd see it's going like north, slightly east. Then he said that the age of tech leaf, and that means that where a person is responsible for things in his own life is that 40 years old. So anyone
before that age, who dies is gone straight to paradise. So anybody who dies under 40, all the things that you did wrong, you're gone straight to Paradise, because you're not responsible to reach 40.
He would read only on Fatiha in Salat.
And then he also allowed women to lead the prayer. And that's not by themselves because the main Sharia allows women to lead by themselves, even a woman could be there with a group of women and she leads to the group of women. She wouldn't be standing in front but in the center, so she can lead and Dizzy reports of Asia or the Elana leading a prayer with her servant, who did not know how to lead salaat and she was in the back. So women can lead the prayer, but not the group prayer in front of the men and then also giving the Juma clipper in front of the men. So, this is part of what he was doing and changing things around and trying to introduce this into the society itself. And he
said happiness is submission to God.
So this is his dour type of thing. And it's a beautiful statement. And so, he tried to use this type of thought.
you know, when he did this thing, when he said
that you have to remove these verses, he went over the line. And in his final Testament, He removes
the verses 128 and 129 from sort of the top.
He also said that the Khalifa mentioned in service of Bacala verse 30, that it was the shaytaan it was Satan.
therefore making the number
But I've khalifa to be mentioned in the Quran 19. So he had the solar, do his tafsir
to take it out completely. So so you'll see and people have made rebuttals to his teachings,
very clearly battles.
I don't check Ahmed Deedat made a rebound. But we battle Dr. Bill Phillips, other people did some writings, you'll even see his own followers if you go online, doing rebuttals to these false teachings.
And he said that he made prophecies too now, because of course, he's the Prophet, the messenger of the covenant. So he said, at the end of time, an asteroid would hit the Earth at the Middle East, and it would burn for 100 mile radius, that a huge smoke would appear, bringing in the end of time, this would be at the end of 1990. So obviously, his his prophecy is it's gone.
Okay, but at that time, this is apocalyptic. And people from the 20th century, with the great wars going on, with the strange things nuclear destruction, you know, people have, have been very apocalyptic. So he was really terrorizing people with his predictions of the last time.
And he made a statement five months before his death, through the angel Gabriel, I was commanded to make this announcement. After I die, millions of believers will know that I represent the Messiah, the Jews have been waiting for the Christ, Christians have been expecting the malady the Muslims have been praying for, for I am God's messenger of the covenant.
And then he quotes Malikai 3128, and the Quran 381. So he made the statement, so there is no speculation in this. He was, or he felt he was the one
for the Jews, for the Christian, for Muslim for everybody. So he was in a total delusion. And he was spreading it. And through the technology, through the ability to go online. And, you know, the the instant success of his 19 number, and it took a long time for Muslims to realize some Muslims are still affected by this 19 Up until now, because yes, there are there are things like the 114 chapters divided by 19. Yes, that's a strange type of thing. But of course, you have seven, also in the Quran, you have other numbers
in the court, and really, you know, a study was done. And they found that that some of the great scholars of Tafseer, they have already picked out
multiple times they were so much intercourse and without the computers, how certain words were repeating themselves over and over again, like in certain letters at the beginning, I left la meme. The other these letters might appear more than any other letters in a certain chapter or sod, or whatever it is, some of the great Mufasa he picked that out already.
So this was not a revelation.
Much of this was known before. But the difference was, he organized it.
The computer of course with its ability
to to bring together numbers.
He made a major presentation.
And because of this and Allah knows best what the circumstances were what actually happened. But on January 31 1990, he was found stabbed to death inside of his mosque or temple in Tucson, Arizona. This was his place of employment. That's where he was. He was stabbed multiple times. 19 years see 1919 years after the murder. On Tuesday, April 28th 2009. The Calgary police services of Canada arrested Glenn Cosford, Francis, a 52 year old citizen of Trinidad and Tobago on suspicion of killing Rashad Khalifa.
Allah knows best.
This person was in his Giamatti did Afro Muslim. You know he was there. He joined him became very close to him and he vanished out of sight
after his death, and they piece together information
Allah knows best. This person was arrested and is still serving time. And so this false prophet
his group is still around, and they still go online and people are still being affected by the number 19. But his claim of being the Prophet of the Covenant or the messenger of the covenant has been totally rebuffed. It's it's, it's falsehood, and it will go into the dustbin, does bin of Islamic history with the other liar prophets, who made the false witness and claim after the Prophet Muhammad, Salah Salem
made it clear that he is horrible and Bo and more saline. He is the seal of the messengers and prophets. And I want to remind you again, as we come to our conclusion of this tradition, this hadith brought by Allah bad even Saudia or the long one. He said that once the Prophet Muhammad SAW seldom prayed the morning, pray with us, then turned to us and gave us an intense sermon, which made our eyes filled with tears and our hearts quiver.
Someone said that a messenger of Allah, it is as it is as if that was a Farewell Sermon. So what do you enjoin us just imagine this, that it's so powerful after Salado Fudger. His speech is so powerful, everybody's crying.
And they said like, this seems like it's the end. Give us some advice. And he told them, I advise you to fear Allah, and to hear and obey your leader, even if he may be a slave of Ethiopian origin.
And this is an important statement, say no matter what level of society he comes from, and use Ethiopian, although Ethiopians were powerful people at the time, and they were also Persian slaves, Arab slaves. European slaves, wasn't just black people who were slaves. But there was some colorism going on. There was some animosity between the Arabs of the peninsula and the Ethiopians. Fear is like a love hate type of relationship. So this is an important statement.
So even if this person is of this Ethiopian origin, obey Him. So this means you obey your leader. It's not based on color. It's not based on nationality. And then the province of Salim said, Surely he among you, who lives after me will see great dispute.
So adhere to my sunnah and that of the Rightly Guided caliphs, who will come after me, stick closely to this saga, bite into it with your molars and beware of newly invented matters in religion, for every invented matter, in religion is accursed innovation a better which leads us astray.
And this hadith is reported in telling me the and I will doubt its authentic hadith. And it shows us very clearly, that the Prophet SAW seldom knew that it would happen, that those who come after me you will see great differences, you're going to see splits. It is also reported that the Prophet SAW seldom said very clearly. And this is an a hadith, it's also in telling me the Abu download, and the end of the Hadith that says, surely the Israelites penniless or heal, broken 272 sects, and my nation will splinter into 73
groups, all of which will be in the fire, except one. Then there's a Sahaba asked him a messenger of Allah, which group is this which one? And he told him MA and Allah He was happy, he said is the one that I am following and my companions
This is the one
I want to make it clear
that the majority of the great scholars of this religion do not split hairs into the little groups. And so when we talk about the Sunnah, and Asana well JAMA, we are talking about the people who are following the Quran and following the sunnah to the best of their ability. There may be some mistakes that they make, there may be some misunderstandings, but they are part of this they may focus on one aspect of the religion, but they are part of the so in this. You would put
because the Salafi are following the Sunnah, and not talking about extremists, not not pseudo selfies, who don't want to follow any of the scholars or any of the Sunnah. But those who are following the Quran and the Sunnah, especially the Salafi, which is really sad, which is the humbly way of asking for de Lille. So this is the Sunnah.
They are part of it Sufis, that the soul of people who follow Sharia. I'm not talking about the ones who go outside of Sharia, and who do not stay within the parameters. But those who stay within the parameters are under Sunda will Gemma
all of the different groups,
they are trying in their ways to follow the Sunnah. And we don't have the right to be making tech fear and putting people in hellfire because they don't follow all of the different aspects of the faith that we follow, or do not have in their belief system. Some of the philosophical concepts, and I'm not saying this to to to put down any of these Arpita concepts because they are important. But in many cases, when you really go back to the aspects of Aqeedah, the so called groups that are Peter, you will find it's basically the same, it's semantics. It's saying the same thing with different words.
And when you take the look at the scholars in context, when you look at them in context, then you will see that contextually
the leaders were trying to follow the court and on the Sunnah.
And they were dealing with issues in their time, whether it be more Tesla, whether it be any of these strange groups, they're responding to them in their own way. And that way, is not necessarily what is the context that we're living in today.
We are living in a context where Muslims are spread around the earth. And we have been divided up with nation and tribe and racism and artificial secular attacks on the Muslim world.
And we need to unite.
We need to come together.
Today but Abdullah rhodiola, one
was asked about his deen and he said Baotou Rasul Allah, so solemn other economist Salat, when He taught his cat, oneness liquidly Muslim.
He said, I took this pledge to the Messenger of Allah, to establish prayers to establish the pain of the poor do my Zakat, and to give sincerity and support and advice to all Muslims, coldly Muslim.
This is very important, all Muslims. And so we need to have this concept now in this age of confusion and division, that Muslims need to forgive each other to come together to give advice, sometimes to agree to disagree.
But to still make a SFX that that our nation can come back in.
And there's no valid reason why if we living in the Americas, on the periphery of the Muslim world, we'll take a hair splitting argument of 1000 years ago and make it divide me from my brother and my sister. Although they are praying like me, they're fasting like me.
They believe in the Kalama. They're going to Hajj.
They're doing all the basic things of Islam. But because of a philosophical argument 1000 years ago, I want to deal with that person. Like he's not in the faith. This is a major mistake. And people are being used in a subtle way by the shaytaan. Well, he has a biller to keep the divisions in the Muslim world going and we need to unite upon the Quran and the Sunnah.
And we need to love Love is the basis love other people agree to disagree with love. That's the way out for us. Because the other way is to fall into these paths into the ways of the lie of profits.
And so I leave you with these concepts and thoughts.
And we will be opening up the floor for any questions, anything that's in the chat. And I ask Allah to have mercy upon on me and on you had to forgive me for any mistakes that I have made during this course. My intention is to open up a door that we can all be students of knowledge and continue to study and keep our say ourself away from the evil innovations and the evolution
atonic ways that have come into the OMA. So I want to open up the floor for any questions that people may have. We want to look at the chat to see
what it is saying.
It says I thought Rashad Khalifa was Egyptian. I see he used affendi which is used in Turkish culture to prefer to Prophet Muhammad. No, okay. Maybe you're just learning the Turkish language affendi actually means mister. So when you say affendi You can say, you know, Ali affendi when it's used in common language, okay, so so it does not now they will use it, as you know, also when they're talking about Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
But it's using common language and because the Ottomans were controlling Egypt for a period of time and people like Soltani or Muhammad Ali Bhatia, you know, you find these terminologies even in egyptian arabic, that they use, they will say, you know,
you know, cave hanukkiah Bay, they say, how are you? Yeah, baby who called in Egyptian, or they say Bashar in Egyptian. Okay, so it's not necessarily a Turkish words, you know, and I'm using it in a general sense that he's a person with a suit on and clean shaven, this is an offender. This is like a, you know, gentlemen. Like that. Okay.
So let's go on and see
Does any other questions coming in here
I think people had come in, still from different parts of the world. We have many of our brothers and sisters who have come in and
one person is saying, Before I became Muslim 20 years ago
I got his translation from the library. The Wonder Muslim took it away from me. After almost three decades, I finally understood why Alhamdulillah so there's been some value in this course. You know, may Allah bless that brother who took that away from you? May Allah forgive him if he did it in a negative way. But his intention was good.
Let's look and see if there's any other final questions coming in. And yes, you know salaam to everybody who are coming in from different parts of the world, especially from North America, from Canada from the United States. And this is the last class within this semester. And keep in touch with
