Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala seated over Lee will hearken into being a Mohammedan Allah Allah He was happy about Aqua Sana, I'll praise the due to Allah, Lord of the worlds and peace and blessings be showered upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad, the master the first and the last, and upon 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 a Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah, this is another chance for us to come together

00:01:42--> 00:01:46

to provide a type of corner, a new Muslim corner,

00:01:48--> 00:01:56

our physical space, and also a mental space spiritual space for those who have recently embraced Islam.

00:01:57--> 00:02:17

And many times, the people who are embracing Islam don't have the opportunity to ask certain questions. And they are usually bombarded with a lot of information, people will tell them don't do this and don't do that. So you get like 25 do's and don'ts.

00:02:18--> 00:02:35

And without understanding the spirit of Islam itself, and without having the chance to really develop within Islam. And sometimes the questions that we may ask, you know, seem to be ignorant, foolish questions, but they're not.

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

whatever is bothering you.

00:02:38--> 00:02:45

This is a chance for you to ask that question. I can't guarantee that I have the answer. But if I don't, Inshallah, I will try

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

to find the answer. The only

00:02:51--> 00:03:12

type of question or types of questions that I cannot go into what we do not here is like political questions, we want to know the state of the Muslim world. And what is happening here are the this is not a politics class. This is really to deal with the foundations of Islam itself, and to make it available

00:03:13--> 00:03:32

to Muslims. Not only who have newly embraced Islam, but also those who are reviving their faith. And really, this information that we're giving is something that all Muslims should be reviewing constantly. Because it is of critical importance. And as a great scholar, CT abdomen,

00:03:33--> 00:03:43

daddy, in his book on your Baghdad on worship, great North African scholar, he started off by saying like what is required of a new mosque.

00:03:44--> 00:04:02

And the key point is that that person should correct and authenticate their faith, correct, and authenticate faith. And that means that everybody has a faith. Everybody has some sort of beliefs about life and death,

00:04:03--> 00:04:42

where we are going, but are they the correct ones? Are they authentic? Or is it just something based on culture and superstition? So this class is going through the veils of superstition and culture, to try to go to the essence of what Islam is. And we recognized that the key part of Islam, the key essence of entering into Islam, is the Kalama and that is Lila Hill. Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah so Salam, that is there is no God but Allah, or nothing worthy of worship, except Allah. And Muhammad is his messenger, peace people.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

That's the basis so you could call it Tauheed and reseller so that is the Oneness of Allah and the Prophet hood. So once you have that, and you state that it doesn't matter what race you are

00:05:00--> 00:05:25

It doesn't matter what class you are, what language, you speak what form a religion that you have. When you state that sincerely, you have entered into the fold of Islam. And so we need to understand, you know, this basis, the basis of our faith, that oneness, and to protect ourselves from losing that purity of the Oneness of Allah.

00:05:26--> 00:05:30

And so, we found out that this Tawheed,

00:05:31--> 00:05:36

this belief in one God, this is the main description of a Muslim.

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

It is not Muslims are not one racial group.

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

They are not one linguistic group.

00:05:45--> 00:05:51

As a matter of fact, we understand that prophets and messengers came to every nation and every tribe,

00:05:53--> 00:06:05

and then traveling to different parts of the world. In China, I spoke to a Chinese scholar, and he said that they have a concept in ancient times called Shang T.

00:06:06--> 00:06:09

And Shang T meant the Great Spirit.

00:06:11--> 00:06:21

So that concept was there in China in ancient times. So at all parts of the world, I remember being on a radio program in Scotland,

00:06:22--> 00:06:44

and we were discussing Tawheed and prophets. And the brother who was with me, spoke that historically before the time of Christ, that there are records of a person coming into the northern part of the British Isles to the United Kingdom, to the northern part, teaching the oneness of God.

00:06:45--> 00:06:48

So that person who came before Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah

00:06:50--> 00:07:01

could very well have been one of the prophets, because Allah sent prophets and messengers to every nation, regardless of where they live.

00:07:02--> 00:07:08

And we'll be studying more about the prophets and the messengers that we know about, for sure.

00:07:09--> 00:07:34

But the key thing is, is that this Oneness of Allah is complemented with prophethood in that Allah sent messengers, and a final messenger, to complete the message. So Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, is considered to be the finality of Prophets, not the only prophet of Islam.

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

So when we say the word Islam, we're talking about the belief in one God.

00:07:42--> 00:07:45

And that's really important to try to understand

00:07:46--> 00:07:59

how Islam impacted on people in different parts of the world, you know, and to put it into our own lives. So we recognized the critical nature of believing in one God.

00:08:01--> 00:08:14

And we found out that the opposite of Tawheed monotheism is shirk. And that is polytheism. associating partners with Allah.

00:08:15--> 00:08:26

And so a person who is mushrik, or a polytheist, they believe in a creator, but they also try to go through creative things to get to the Creator.

00:08:27--> 00:08:30

And so that's like a partnership.

00:08:31--> 00:08:48

And the most famous probably a way of going to this partnership, probably is the Trinity. That's the one that's known by people, especially in the Western world. And we recognize that Allah has said clearly that he would forgive all sins in this life.

00:08:50--> 00:09:19

In the next life, the only sin which is unforgivable, is shirk. And that is polities. And that is established in the Quran itself. How dangerous shirk is that a person needs to try in the best possible way not to die in polytheism. But we need to understand what polytheism is, and the classical way, the classical concept of polytheism is somebody bowing down to an idol,

00:09:20--> 00:09:46

but there are different forms of shirk. And we are studying the major forms of shirk, in order that we can protect ourselves and we can begin to complete and to purify. You know, our belief in one God and we reached a very important section, and that is Barbosa that is the section on magic.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

And when we look at Magic itself, we are talking about all types of sorcery, witchcraft, divination, necromancy. Now that we're

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

is when you're communicating with the dead. All types of forms like this. So Sahara is a big word.

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

And magic

00:10:11--> 00:10:35

is used in a lot of different ways. Sometimes they say innocent magic, and then even we were discussing, should we say black magic or white magic? Right? But that again, that's a play on on words. Because in Western countries, black generally means something negative. So if I said,

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

black magic,

00:10:39--> 00:10:43

that would be evil magic. But if I said White Magic,

00:10:44--> 00:10:53

then that would mean good magic, right? Innocent magic. So this is how we use it in a language, right? And so really, it's not black or white.

00:10:55--> 00:11:18

It's magic itself. Okay. And that's important because we need to understand that magic from our understanding the Quranic understanding, it really began in an organized form, in a place called Babel. And Babel we know as Babylon. That's an ancient Iraq.

00:11:19--> 00:11:23

And it was two angels Ha, root and Marut.

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

We find it in this second chapter, verse 1012102.

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

This is where this magic came in and to look at the actual verses itself.

00:11:36--> 00:11:49

That this is the translation of the second chapter, where Allah is saying, and they followed what the devils chanted of sorcery in the reign of Sulayman. That means Prophet Solomon.

00:11:51--> 00:12:05

And Solomon was not an unbeliever. But the devils disbelieved. They taught men sorcery, and such things as came down to the two angels at Babel. How Ruta modeled,

00:12:06--> 00:12:34

so you can see it right there. Because prophets with a man had so much power, he was able to do things like speak with birds and communicate with the jinn and whatnot. And so people thought that this is magic, like he must be a master magician. And you'll find that mentioned even in the Bible and other places, these accusations that came against so the man, but the Koran absolves him.

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

And it says clearly, he was not an unbeliever.

00:12:39--> 00:12:50

So his ability to talk to the jinn, the creatures of smokeless fire, that normally is done through the secret societies of magic,

00:12:51--> 00:13:00

but in the case of Suleiman, alayhis, salam, he had this ability. And the Quran shows clearly he was not a discipline, he was not an unbeliever.

00:13:01--> 00:13:11

But the evil ones were the people who taught this magic that came in Babel. So in the Quran, it is Babel.

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

It's literally in the Quran itself, which is Babylon.

00:13:16--> 00:13:25

And the verse continues. And I said, yes, these two taught no man until they had said, Surely we are only a trial.

00:13:26--> 00:13:50

Therefore do not disbelieve to not be a disbeliever. Because you would say like, what were the angel? Which angels basically are good, they're not devils, what would the angel be teaching magic. So they were commanded by the Creator to do this. And so they taught these magical systems. But every time they did it, they said, This is a test.

00:13:51--> 00:13:59

In other words, this knowledge is here, but you're being tested now. So do not become a disbeliever. Okay.

00:14:00--> 00:14:10

The current continues, even then, people learn from these two Magic by which they might cause a separation between a man and his wife.

00:14:11--> 00:15:00

And they cannot hurt with it. anyone except with Allah's permission. And they learned what harm them and did not profit them. And certainly, they knew that buyers of magic would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter, and evil was the price for which they sold their souls if they bought new. So this, this is showing here now. Magic and one of the worst forms of magic is breaking up families. The separation of husband and wife. So you can see now the state that we're living in today, especially in the Western countries, okay, there's things going on here that are very strange and the more you understand magic and the cures to it, you can understand what's happening because

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

Divorce is on the rise. And in some places, people don't even want to get married.

00:15:05--> 00:15:20

So this is the breakup of society, if you don't have stable families, you have no stable society. And that is the object of the shaytaan of the devil. It's the breakup of societies. Okay?

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

So now, what are the types of magic?

00:15:27--> 00:15:35

There are forms of different spells, casting spells. And that will vary from society to society.

00:15:37--> 00:16:07

And these magic cults, these magical groups that literally take people, induct them into their group, and then teach them it's knowledge. It's literally knowledge. And you can go degrees within the knowledge of magic itself. So in the time of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, there were women who used to blow and nuts as a way of casting spells. That's called Nephi 30 for the rocket.

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

Okay, so this is one way, but that's basically casting spells.

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

The other Another form is summoning the jinn.

00:16:17--> 00:16:22

So you summon the jinn to perform acts of good or evil.

00:16:23--> 00:16:38

So you try to get control of these forces, to gain control of the forces. And that's basically what these magical societies are doing. This is like the highest level of magic, where you can say the lowest,

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

you know, is the gem, that's the worst form,

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

there is another form that will look into more detail and that is fortune telling,

00:16:47--> 00:17:06

which falls under that, and one of the most dangerous forms of magic is also and this is connected with the jinn, both of these are, that is possession. So that is where a person is possessed. And that's literally where the Jimny you know, enters into the body of the person.

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

And they are actually possessed.

00:17:10--> 00:17:25

Okay, so these are different forms. And there are many different types, we want to look at these major forms now just in general to understand the Islamic position right away. That magic is considered to be disbelief,

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

and

00:17:29--> 00:17:39

sometimes shirk, and sometimes it's considered to be shirk, as well. But really, these are all, of course, Major, the major sins. And this is by the consensus of the scholars.

00:17:40--> 00:17:58

And the punishment in Islamic law is that we take it really serious. So in the same way, in some countries, you have you have capital punishment, everybody has forms of capital punishment, for different things. For us. The performing magic is actually capital punishment.

00:17:59--> 00:18:15

And that is, of course, there's a whole process, the person, you know, because there's courts, we don't have vigilantes, there is court, so the person who's doing this magic, and we'll see what the different types are, they are brought to the court, they are asked to stop and to repent.

00:18:16--> 00:18:36

And then they let go. And then the second time, they're asked to repent, they let go. The third time, they're asked to repent, if they continue after that. This is where capital punishment could be applied. And it doesn't always apply in the societies itself. Okay, that's a point of discussion, if anybody wants to.

00:18:38--> 00:18:41

Now, in terms of

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

the possession,

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

because again, like we say magic is there's light forms and these heavy forms.

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

But possession is really

00:18:56--> 00:19:05

one of the heavy forms with the gin. It's not everybody, even who communicates with the gin, who actually is into this possession thing.

00:19:06--> 00:19:06

And

00:19:08--> 00:19:14

so, this is to get it out, is called exorcism. This is nostre.

00:19:16--> 00:19:51

And there are actually Muslims who are amongst the Allamah amongst the scholars who dedicate themselves to exorcism exocyst. And as I was saying, last week, amongst the Christians, there are excesses in the Catholic faith, the other forms of Christianity don't really do it anymore, is being phased out. And because secularism is so powerful in Western countries, so they considered anything to do with the minds or whatever they say that it's a mental illness. So you go into psychiatry, and you know, whatever.

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

But there are cases I've run into cases where the person's in a prison cell and just banging his head on the wall.

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

All talking invoices and doing crazy things. And the Protestants will not touch it. They just give them drugs. It's considered you put them in a straitjacket. It's only the Catholics if they can find certain signs that they will actually try to take it out.

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

And one might say, Okay, what does that have to do with Islam.

00:20:27--> 00:20:36

But Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, there were actually cases of this. There was one case where he was in a caravan.

00:20:37--> 00:20:41

And along the side of the road, the family brought their son.

00:20:42--> 00:20:51

And they said, O Messenger of Allah, our son has been possessed. And so according to this tradition, then he laid the boy down, and he read from the Quran.

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

And then he hit him real hard in his chest.

00:20:56--> 00:21:09

Right, he did, certainly in the chest, read, read the Quran, and in order to extract it. So it's actually a science of how to extract it. But it's not an easy one.

00:21:11--> 00:21:15

And they say that the people who perform exorcisms

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

they have a very difficult life. And most of the time, The Exorcist are not married.

00:21:22--> 00:21:32

They're usually a very humble single man who stays by himself making vicolo remembrance of Allah all the time. Because the problem is, if you take it out,

00:21:33--> 00:21:40

it's going for your family. So if you if you took that thing out, it's gone for your wife next.

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

Okay, or your children. It'll go for your children as a revenge, right?

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

So therefore, the exocyst generally do not.

00:21:51--> 00:21:59

They don't take it out. And we, I ran across some cases, Allah knows best. There was a brother, Cuban brother.

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

And he was a really powerful Muslim.

00:22:05--> 00:22:09

And he was so powerful before he accepted Islam, like he swam from Cuba to Jamaica,

00:22:10--> 00:22:25

because he wanted to, you know, his freedom or where he swam from Cuba to Jamaica. So it's a really strong person. And he joined this group called the Jamaat, I believe, who traveled all around the place. And he ended up in India. And he went to him a dresser.

00:22:26--> 00:22:39

And they, they liked him a lot, because he was really strong student. And they took him to an exorcist. So he literally was with us when I was living in Jamaica. And he told us what happened to him.

00:22:41--> 00:23:02

And he said that he went to the exorcist. And that person was performing extractions. And in one case, the person you know, was talking in tongues and whatever and, and so they read, read the Koran, and what he said is like a terrible smell that was coming. And something came out. And they actually,

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

they got it into a bottle.

00:23:06--> 00:23:12

You know, and then they kept the bottle with Quranic writings and things like that, and they buried it.

00:23:14--> 00:23:54

Okay, so that he witnessed that, you know, life, actually, you know what it was, and but it was really frightening thing. And a friend of mine, who's our law K, you still live in California. And he was a student in Medina. And you would think that the Islamic University of Medina, because they're very strong and Arpita, right. So you would think that they have nothing to do with magic or anything like this. But no, this is a reality. And there was one scholarship how the mushrif, and he was known for exorcism. And so he would teach his classes in the college have *tier.

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

And he would go home,

00:23:59--> 00:24:09

and wash up and, you know, take us to lunch or whatever. And in his basement, he had beds, like a doctor's office, and the people who actually in there, and they're laying in the beds.

00:24:11--> 00:24:19

So he would go down to the beds that my friend got permission to be with him. So this is live testimony. So he went down.

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

And generally,

00:24:22--> 00:24:59

you know, he would put his hand on the person's neck and read, you know, certain chapters of the Quran, you know, trying to get it out. And if the person is really strong, if you don't, if you don't want it to be there, and you fight back, then he can help you. But if you don't fight back, then he has difficulties doing it. So in most cases, he gets it out, you know, whatever. And he said it was strange because there was one case where he was speaking to this jindee Because the person who's possessed talks in tongues still talk to you in another voice. And that person said

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

To the chef, he said, I'm an Imam, of the gym.

00:25:05--> 00:25:24

So, he said, What are you doing inside of this person? Now you ask yourself, how can it be an imam of the gym? Right? Because there are good gym and that there's actually good gyms. All the jinn are not evil. You know, there's a chapter in the Quran called serotonin. It's a chapter of the Quran.

00:25:26--> 00:25:27

And in this chapter

00:25:29--> 00:25:52

the Prophet SAW Selim, you know, was traveling, you know, from Tonga, he was traveling along with Sade and he actually came across a company a gin and tonic is a mountainous place. So when you're going down tight if toward Mecca and Jeddah, so there's a lot of caves and whatnot. So the gym like this, so he came to the company of the gin

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

and

00:25:55--> 00:25:57

the Quran was revealed.

00:25:59--> 00:26:08

And the Quran was revealed to the gem, speaking directly to them, and they believed, so this set of the gem actually became Muslim.

00:26:10--> 00:26:17

So there are good jinn. And there are evil in the process of them said, everybody has a Corinne around them.

00:26:18--> 00:26:47

You have a type of Jenny that comes around you is called Karine. Some people can hear voices in their head and whatever and dreams and you know things. So this forces around you. He said, every human being everybody's got this. So then they said, they said, jasola, what about you? Do you have one? Because he allowed them to ask questions. So he said, Do you have one of these Jin era? He said, Yes, I do. But my generally accepted Islam.

00:26:48--> 00:26:53

So his jindee is a Muslim, right? So he doesn't have problem but as is not.

00:26:54--> 00:27:08

Right. So that's why the all the purification that you're doing, you know, for a purpose that because that you're doing the halal food you're eating, you know, everything like that is for a purpose. And so Nusra is a reality.

00:27:10--> 00:27:15

But we don't go to somebody who uses magic to get magic out.

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

We don't do that.

00:27:19--> 00:27:25

We will go to somebody who is specialized in this, there are very few people who actually do this.

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

And people used to come to me before in the Jerry mosque, and I don't do this.

00:27:32--> 00:27:53

I don't do this. I have a family and I'm not going to this brother there. And he taught me because I don't want to Jin's coming back to me, you know, and the problem we have is we have superstition in us. One time the brother came to me and he said brother Abdullah, I have these headaches, pains in my head, this jindee In my head, get it out.

00:27:55--> 00:28:06

And I said okay, brother, calm down. And I said, Okay, you how many jobs do you have? And he said, I have two jobs. I'm working constantly.

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

And I said, Okay, have you ever heard the word stress?

00:28:11--> 00:28:15

Stress, right? You need to first

00:28:16--> 00:28:19

quit one of those jobs. You got to go to a doctor.

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

Okay, don't blame everything on the gym.

00:28:24--> 00:28:26

Because if something inhabits your body,

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

that is something real, that's not like a migraine headache, that you can take Tylenol.

00:28:34--> 00:28:41

If something inhabits your body, it is serious, you got to feel an entity inside of you.

00:28:43--> 00:28:46

So actual possession of people is rare.

00:28:48--> 00:28:51

Especially today, it was probably more before

00:28:52--> 00:29:02

but but people have so many psychological problems and physical problems and issues you know, but the real possession of a person is something which

00:29:03--> 00:29:29

Muslims have a way to come out of it. So no straw or exorcism is real within Islamic teachings. And we generally use verses from the Quran. There is AYATUL kursi which is the second chapter of Quran verse 255. Allah Hula, hula, hula hula how you consume? You know this verse, very important. There's a chapter called Yacine.

00:29:30--> 00:29:44

Okay, there's a chapter, the last two chapters of the Quran falak certain Falah conservativeness. So these chapters can be read in order to protect against evil.

00:29:45--> 00:29:49

And there are certain do hours that you can make. Okay, I want to

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

just give you two of them. So you can least have something if you don't know what already. I transliterated the Arabic because most people you

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

are numerous if you can't read the Arabic but this is the transliteration and even if you knew the English, but these these two are really important and one is our Ruby Kelly Mattila he met men Shari ma falak

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

right are who repeat after me who

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

be Kelly Mantilla?

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

A term Matt

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

min Shari

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

ma Kolak.

00:30:31--> 00:30:39

So that means I seek refuge with the complete Words of Allah from the evil he has created.

00:30:40--> 00:30:59

And the provinces Salam said, You need to really we need to read this three times after Fajr in the morning and in the evening, it's good also to read this. This one is really really powerful. And he said that if you read this to ah, it's especially used when you're entering a new house.

00:31:00--> 00:31:11

So if you enter into a new place, you just got a new apartment and you know, you move into a place where you really feel evil. Then you read this to our will to be Kalamata later met when shall be my follow up.

00:31:13--> 00:31:27

And that is a powerful thing. And I experienced this myself. Because we lived in Medina, this is back in the 70s. And we had to move into the Bedouin section of Medina. Very simple lifestyle,

00:31:29--> 00:31:36

running water across the street, and you know, no air conditioner, just a little fan. This is in Arabia

00:31:37--> 00:31:45

and Medina was known and is still known for this type of aqua rap is a scorpion.

00:31:46--> 00:31:54

So they have a big, there's a big one big, dark scorpion. And it's dangerous one because the mountainous area in the desert,

00:31:55--> 00:32:00

to the point where the Prophet SAW Sadler made dua for the scorpion,

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

you know, to be taken away.

00:32:04--> 00:32:24

You know, so this, this Scorpion is really serious. So you read this to us, and we moved into this Bedouin place. And that's very simple style, if you know, you know, the Middle East and you know, Asia, the house, very simple, you know, type of style. And you know, you come in and, you know, when you go upstairs, it's like open air.

00:32:25--> 00:32:31

The second floor, the roof is open air, because it's hot, and you we sleep on the roof most of the time.

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

And

00:32:34--> 00:32:43

the scorpions were there. So I read this dua constantly. And the scorpions came to me every single time.

00:32:45--> 00:32:50

Like they were in the house. And I would look and there it is going up the wall.

00:32:51--> 00:32:56

So that I take my you know, my slipper and you know, take it out because you can kill it if it's in your house.

00:32:57--> 00:33:01

So the certain creatures, that if they're in your house,

00:33:03--> 00:33:10

then you are allowed to take the life of you know, this creature, you first ask it to leave.

00:33:12--> 00:33:30

And what is the crab, another is the snakes if you have a snake in your house, fortunately, in Canada, you have to worry about snakes in your house. Right. But if you lived in some other parts that were viewing you in the Caribbean, you might have this, it can happen. So snakes in your house

00:33:32--> 00:33:41

you know, and also lizards, if a lizard comes in your house, and there was a type of lizard that was in Medina, this was a

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

and a goat.

00:33:45--> 00:34:01

Makes it sound like that, right? You ever heard a lizard like that? If you lived in you know areas, country areas and desert areas. So it makes this noise, right? So then this thing is you hear this noise, and you see it, ask it to leave. Why you ask me because the gym can inhabit the lizard,

00:34:03--> 00:34:06

the sort of certain animals that Ginny's can inhabit.

00:34:08--> 00:34:12

Okay, and so the lizard you ask it to leave, if not, you take it out.

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

The jindee can also inhabit

00:34:17--> 00:34:23

dogs, especially a black dog with a white spot in the front.

00:34:24--> 00:34:39

This is this is the one that's been defined in Hadith that you got to watch out for. And I remember there was a movie some years ago called Son of Sam, it was some serial killer in New York who was killing people and you know, whatever. You know, and then

00:34:40--> 00:34:46

they said, Finally they found that when they captured them, they said like why did you do this? He said, I was commanded by this doc.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

It was like, commanded me to do this and they caught this dog. And it was a black dog with a white spot. I don't know whether they knew what they were putting in the movie. But it went right along with what we had learned about

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

This animal so these are some of the animals that you'd have to watch out for.

00:35:05--> 00:35:07

Especially when they come inside your house right?

00:35:08--> 00:35:11

And not necessarily outside, they were running around killing animals.

00:35:13--> 00:35:45

Okay, and in some cultures it can be a slight problem when you're taking the life of an animal, but this is serious. So the second dua because I wanted to give you some sort of solutions is the second one Bismillah, Hilaire de la jolla doru. Must be he che on Filardi will f is Sama, who was some Iolani. So this one is saying the name of Allah, who with his name, nothing can harm you in the earth, or in the heavens, and he is all hearing and all knowing.

00:35:47--> 00:36:02

Okay, these two are Muslims. And today and one scholar, I heard him say, you need, we should all be reading this every night. And every morning after fajr, these two, it's Sunday to read this. Okay, because there's so much evil around us.

00:36:04--> 00:36:05

Okay, and these are powerful,

00:36:07--> 00:36:21

you know, do ours to be able to read, and to understand what it is, because you're saying in the Name of Allah, you know, with his name, nothing can harm you. You see, you're seeking refuge, you know, through the complete Words of Allah from the evil he has created.

00:36:22--> 00:36:31

You, you really believe that Allah can protect you, and you say this. And if there are things around you, you know, then they will learn, they will live.

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

Okay, so these are some of the protections that we have against

00:36:37--> 00:36:51

the evil of the gym. So this is probably the worst form, you know, that this magic can actually take? I want to open up the floor, if there's any questions anybody may have concerning this. Yeah. You mentioned that.

00:36:53--> 00:37:33

The when you're talking about vision and your possession, you notice differences, like you feel something else like inside of you. But how would you tell if it's like a family member or somebody else? Like the difference between like a mental health and like some work? I'm in the gym? Yeah. Okay, so the question is, how do you know the difference between, you know, a mental breakdown of the person or that actually Jen inhabiting? That's a? That's a very difficult question, because that takes a specialist. So so the person who knows how to deal with the gym, you know, would actually come in, and they test the certain ways they can test to know whether it's actually there or not.

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

And unfortunately, in most of our cases, today, it's superstition.

00:37:38--> 00:37:50

Like I said, the brother who came to me and said, he had it in his head, you know, and I asked him, Do you work? He has two jobs. And I said, Okay, do you know the word stress? Right? You got stress, man, there's no jindee in your head.

00:37:51--> 00:38:06

Okay, so people take the easy way out, and they try to blame it on the jinn. But it's mental issues, its health problems. So it really does require a specialist to come in. To be able to know the difference between the two.

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

Question is a question online.

00:38:12--> 00:38:43

It's remarkable to know that monotheism existed in all traditional cultures, does that entail that all religions before the title of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him revealed religions? What it means is that you know, based upon, you know, Allah revealed to us, you know, that we have sent prophets and messengers to every nation and every tribe, that they would worship one God and stay away from false deities. So prophets at some point came to Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas, everywhere.

00:38:45--> 00:39:05

So, but that does not mean that all the major religions are actually monotheistic, because you would put Hinduism and Buddhism and but still people have looked at the essence of Hinduism itself. If you go back to the Sanskrit and early Hinduism, you find Tawheed is there. There is Tauheed.

00:39:06--> 00:39:55

Dr. Zakir Naik did some studies on this as well on Hinduism and also Buddhism. Because Buddha was a Hindu prince, and he did not want to go with the idols he was trying to find some way to connect, you know, to the universe. So he was rejecting this. So you can find in pure Buddhism or pure Hinduism, obviously, pure Christianity and pure God, as you'll find. There's the base is to heat. But there are other religions that started off the worship of the sun, the worship of the river, the worship of people, no, those are not monotheistic in the sense of the revealed religions, but we do believe that profits did not only come to the Middle East, this is a wrong concept, that it's only

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

the Middle East that had profits now. All over the world.

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

have

00:40:02--> 00:40:07

any other questions here in the class floor is open for any questions anybody may have.

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

Okay.

00:40:10--> 00:40:53

This This concludes traditional traditions in Africa such as ancestors, and etc. Yes. So what we're saying is that, you know, in Africa itself, one of the unique things I found that in every culture, there is, there is a concept of God, there's a word for the Great Spirit. But it's not everybody who worships directly to the Great Spirit. So shirk is when you go through something, to get to the Creator. And ancestor worship is when you go to your ancestors, to go to God. That's shirk. So that's considered there will be much that again, so that that's not what we're talking about. But even at the time of Prophet Muhammad, sal Sanlam, the pagan Mushrikeen, in Mecca, the Arabs at the

00:40:53--> 00:41:11

time, they believed that there was a lot, but they went through Gods like Latin Azhar and so on. You know, they went through different idols and different, you know, so called Gods to get to Allah. So that's sure that we said is the is the essence, you know, that is something which is wrong.

00:41:12--> 00:41:17

But people don't realize how dangerous even something like magic can be.

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

Okay, and there are different forms.

00:41:21--> 00:41:22

Question, yeah,

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

agreements are the Prophet.

00:41:26--> 00:41:29

And there's a story about

00:41:30--> 00:41:43

why it's important to say Bismillah before you eat, because if you if you don't say Bismillah over a piece of meat, for example, and throw the bone away, the shade on Jin will feed off of that. Right. That's, that's what I had read things.

00:41:46--> 00:42:25

That struck me because it was kind of like a very real way that we are in relationship to these gin. Are there other examples? You know, that there are, you know, within Sierra literature, there are some traditions that are not really sound reports. It's not like you're reading authentic hadith. So Sierra is like that. So Martin Lynx, you know, who's a good writer and brought a lot of the but some of the some of the reports that he brought, are not necessarily authenticated. So it could happen, but it's not every time that happens, that the gin is going to be there in your house. So it's not necessarily because those traditions are that one is is not really authenticated.

00:42:26--> 00:42:32

You know, but yeah, but it is very important. The other general questions here, anybody has?

00:42:34--> 00:42:35

Yeah.

00:42:36--> 00:42:45

So I'm sure what about the words of someone who suffered a lot and lost everything not being able to finish school, get married, and suffered over 30 years?

00:42:47--> 00:42:52

Yeah, so the person who suffered, you know, and, and what happened to their

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

rewards?

00:42:55--> 00:43:25

Yeah, so So there's great rewards, you know, if the person you know, takes the suffering, you know, as a, you know, a test from Allah, and the Prophet, our YouTube job Alayhis Salam, you know, suffered greatly read the life of this, you know, mighty messenger of Allah really suffered a lot. And you will see the great prophets will Aza Mina Russell, you know, Noah, Noah, Abraham, Ibrahim, Musa, Issa and Muhammad, peace be upon them all day they suffered.

00:43:26--> 00:43:36

You know, so if you do it with the right intentions, there is great rewards. And actually, you can raise your higher level. And we understand that the ones who suffered the most was actually the prophets,

00:43:37--> 00:43:48

you know, and then the righteous people. So, so suffering in this world is not necessarily a bad thing. It's a test doesn't feel good, but sometimes it raises your level.

00:43:49--> 00:43:50

Intention is important.

00:43:51--> 00:44:03

Now, for those who were here last week, we want to go on to something slightly, give a little more details, and that is that of the types of magic and shirk, these are forms of shirk.

00:44:04--> 00:44:17

The province of salem said that verily, a alpha, and a turret, and Tiara are all instances of Shirke. So this is an authentic hadith. He said that omens

00:44:18--> 00:44:54

and fortune telling, and superstition are all instances of shirk. Now, this is something that goes right into the roots of our cultures. Because if you look at a alpha, for instance, he Alpha once you have an omen, like in a time of the Prophet SAW Salem, they used to take omens from birds. So as you're going out in a caravan, or you're leaving the city, they look for birds. So if this certain bird, you know, makes, you know, sounds or flies over them, they go back

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

or if they hear they see a certain bird, then they will go forward. You know,

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

They love the Falcon. The Turks. Many people love the Falcons, right? This, you see a falcon coming along, it's like, you know, or an eagle or something good. You know, but if the owl see the owl in that picture, if the owl is there, and it hurts, this one was dangerous. But this is actually shark. Because the fact that that bird is making a noise of flies over you, the crow, right? The fact that it flies over you does not mean that you're going to have bad luck, does it in one Muslim culture. You know, they believe that if a certain bird flies over your house, these crows, you know, whatever, that someone's going to die inside the house, there's some strange beliefs that people

00:45:42--> 00:45:58

have with with birds. These are omens, right? And so omens can be taken from many different things. Can you think of any omens that people have? And certainly you'd like, you know, like, some things that you know, gives you it'll stop you from doing something.

00:46:01--> 00:46:01

Go ahead.

00:46:03--> 00:46:05

Yeah, blackcat crossing your path.

00:46:06--> 00:46:08

Like, if you sleep at night,

00:46:10--> 00:46:31

like you sleep and be put in the dustpan and thrown away is gonna is like throwing away your luck, or something. Right or something breaks, right. Greg, let you know, right. So you they take omens from that right? The black cat crossed your path. That is one where people you know, walk, it's some people, they don't want to walk under a ladder.

00:46:33--> 00:46:38

Right? Or open up an umbrella inside, right? So these type of things.

00:46:41--> 00:46:46

It can be a petty superstition, but if it's stopping you from doing something important,

00:46:47--> 00:46:52

then this this is not right. And people will take omens from a lot of different things.

00:46:53--> 00:46:57

You know, like I was listening to the news, and they said, you know, July 14,

00:46:58--> 00:47:03

if today was Friday, July 13. Friday the 13th.

00:47:04--> 00:47:11

Some people believe that is like an evil day, right? So imagine a Muslim in the house. I can't go to Joomla today,

00:47:12--> 00:47:15

because it's Friday the 13th no stock for Allah, this is wrong.

00:47:17--> 00:47:36

This is not right. So these are omens, and it's classified as shirk. Another form is taught up. And that is telling fortunes by drawing lines reading in them. That's your crystal ball. Tea leaves, palm readings.

00:47:37--> 00:47:47

I saw it again I was driving it was Morningside coming back from Juba, Morningside and Shepard on the right side of the roads, a big sign a psychic reader.

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

It's on the road today.

00:47:51--> 00:47:55

So for a person to put up a sign like that, I mean, they must be getting business right.

00:47:57--> 00:48:00

And they're actually advertising how they can

00:48:01--> 00:48:07

you know, get this and this is not right, because the promises seldom said men enter a raffle

00:48:08--> 00:48:36

for salehoo and che was sadaqa who, but Allah salata who are by in a Yeoman, whoever asks a fortune teller something and believes what he said that his prayer is invalid for 40 days. You get no blessing out of the slots and another Hadith and said for God Kapha Bhima only Allah Allah Muhammad, that he has committed disbelief if you go to the fortune teller

00:48:37--> 00:48:50

and so there's different types of different forms that it takes palm readers and you know, tea leaves it comes in different forms, this is called a dark okay. And

00:48:51--> 00:49:01

these are the psychic readers now you say well I'm in Canada is a very secular country. But this is Canada's you know, best place is called psychic Toronto.

00:50:27--> 00:50:28

They're like social workers.

00:50:30--> 00:50:47

00:50:51--> 00:50:55

00:50:56--> 00:51:13

Maybe now is the time to turn to a fortune teller, clairvoyant, medium or psychic. We want to connect you with the best psychics, clairvoyants, tarot card readers, numerologists and astrologists. To answer your question.

00:51:16--> 00:51:39

So astrology is in this tool, if you want to learn about different readings, tarot cards, astrology, horoscopes, Kabbalah or other body mind and soul questions, then read Canada's best selection of articles and online. Okay, so this is, this is serious now under magic, Oz and Shrek also follows astrology.

00:51:40--> 00:52:04

And there's a difference between astronomy and astrology. So the study of the stars, if you're studying the stars, for physical reasons, scientific reasons, the North Star, you know, as a guide, then that is science. But if you study the stars, in order for like power, or to know the personality of people,

00:52:05--> 00:52:15

right, this is considered to be a form of disbelief, it's a form of shirk. And astrology is, you know, it's rising back again.

00:52:16--> 00:52:21

And people they want to know, like, you know, you want to get married, you know, they said, Okay, you know, what's your sign?

00:52:22--> 00:52:30

So are you Leo, cancer. And, you know, the strange thing about these, these met, these things have some, some power.

00:52:31--> 00:52:53

Because people are affected by tides, like we're mostly made up of water. And so the moon and the tides, that is magnetic pulse. So there are some magnetic poles in the winter, and in the summer, and people born during these seasons, you know, may have tendencies. So this is not all completely wrong.

00:52:54--> 00:53:00

But the problem is, you know, when you now base decisions in life,

00:53:01--> 00:53:06

you know, on this thing, this has brought in some Muslims. I remember when I first came into Islam,

00:53:08--> 00:53:13

and these brothers came from New York City. And so they would say to, you know, slavery can Brother, what's your sign?

00:53:15--> 00:53:24

So this is a Muslim, but he wants to know what your sign is. So if you say My sign is like, Scorpio, please, okay, I'll see you later.

00:53:25--> 00:53:27

Now, they're going to judge you because of your sign.

00:53:28--> 00:53:32

This is this is wrong. And it can go into disbelief.

00:53:34--> 00:53:43

Right? But that does not mean that astronomy is wrong. We're going to make a difference between the two, we're going to go to about 815. And then because we started late,

00:53:44--> 00:53:48

doesn't mean that you know, astronomy itself as a science is wrong.

00:53:49--> 00:54:03

Okay. And we'll go on, we'll finish these and then, okay, tiara, we'd sort of touched on this. This is superstitions based on numbers, objects, animals and colors.

00:54:04--> 00:54:06

Okay, superintended does your black cat

00:54:07--> 00:54:09

so some people are really afraid of black cats.

00:54:11--> 00:54:24

You know, and there are different other animals that you know, affect people very heavily. And you will see in most hotels, I don't know about now. They didn't they don't put a 13th floor

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

because nobody wants to live on the 13th floor.

00:54:30--> 00:54:43

Okay, because they're afraid of that number. And different cultures have different Chinese have some very serious issues with certain numbers and colors and positions. Every culture has got this. This is to euro

00:54:44--> 00:54:46

and that's considered to be shirk.

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

Okay. And that's the number 13. And we talked about, you know, breaking you know, a mirror. There it is causing your bad luck. Okay.

00:55:02--> 00:55:40

And yeah, I put a little discussion here about it, that the Romans were the first people to, you know, to create glass mirrors, they believe that their invention had the potential to steal part of the soul of the person using it. So if a person's reflection was distorted by using a mirror, than their soul would be corrupted, and trapped and trapped as a result, fortunately, the Romans believe your soul could be renewed after seven years. Until that point, though, a person would suffer from bad luck, since they did not have the whole healthy soul to fight up evil. So started with the Romans, but now they just bad luck. So you have good luck signs, and you have bad luck things, okay,

00:55:40--> 00:55:46

but we, we avoid this. We're not into this. And this can affect your toe heat.

00:55:48--> 00:56:00

It can affect your monotheism, because you're now starting to fear created things, you're starting to give power to create things. Right, and that will take away from your Tawheed.

00:56:01--> 00:56:08

And that is the most important thing. You know about being a Muslim? Okay, there's walking under the ladder.

00:56:09--> 00:56:23

Right? That is a serious one. Okay, that is there as well. So I want to open up the floor at the end at the end of this period for any general questions people may have, you know, concerning these types of fortune telling, you know, and superstition

00:56:26--> 00:56:33

superstition, but I like, I really, I don't like the color red like to wear the color red.

00:56:34--> 00:56:36

I really happy with red.

00:56:38--> 00:56:51

Okay, it's not like superstition, though I don't think it brings bad luck. I just really have a problem. Well, you know, sometimes I mean, we you know, as human beings, we have experiences with color. And, you know, there's attraction, you know, color actually,

00:56:52--> 00:56:57

there's a psychological thing to color. And I went to a conference once in a Malaysian system,

00:56:58--> 00:57:12

you know, did a an amazing study. And she found out that McDonald's, you know, they studied color. And they found that the two colors that attract people the most

00:57:13--> 00:57:15

are red, and gold, yellow.

00:57:17--> 00:57:19

So they made like the golden arches.

00:57:21--> 00:57:30

And you'll see even Coca Cola using red are there because these are actually something that the child from when you're young, you are more attracted to these things

00:57:32--> 00:57:41

than any other cause. They also say it Allah knows best, that psychologically, that blue, blue color is a color of truth.

00:57:42--> 00:58:09

It's like a solid color and a color of authority and truth. And that's the reason why police were blue. You know, when authorities were blue, and whatnot, they did this from their psychological studies. I mean, we're not going to go into belief in this. But there is some science behind this in terms of what color means because when when a child is seeing now, there's certain colors that they will see first.

00:58:11--> 00:58:15

Right and does certain attraction, you know, that you know that we do have

00:58:16--> 00:58:27

the dangerous part is when it starts to affect our belief in Allah, where we fear it, or where we are seeking help from it. That's the shark right.

00:58:28--> 00:58:42

So the shark can come in a lot of different things, you know, from fearing but if a person as we said with the time EMA, right, this amulet, you know that the Prophet seldom used to tear the amulets off the necks of his followers

00:58:44--> 00:58:52

and said, Man, the Halacha to me my Wookiee la la, you know, whoever hangs this amulet that will be your master.

00:58:53--> 00:58:55

Right? And he would take it off the animals

00:58:57--> 00:58:59

but it's prevalent in the Muslim world.

00:59:00--> 00:59:06

But now if you were again there's a way out if you had a necklace that said Allah

00:59:07--> 00:59:08

or you had something you know then

00:59:10--> 00:59:16

if you wear it for beauty sake, there's nothing wrong. The only thing you can't take it into the washroom

00:59:18--> 00:59:22

Okay, so if the person one person says okay, I have I have two courses over my door.

00:59:23--> 00:59:32

That's all in my room. That's okay. You have calligraphy. If you have it there, and you believe by having AYATUL kursi on your door

00:59:33--> 00:59:37

that any evil genie that comes this thing on the door is going to punch it

00:59:38--> 00:59:40

or it's like a force field.

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

That's shirk.

00:59:43--> 00:59:48

But if you have calligraphy, if you feel evil, and you look at this, and you and you recite it,

00:59:50--> 00:59:51

and you believe it that's that's okay.

00:59:52--> 00:59:58

It's just when you ascribe power to the object, you see, that's where the shirt comes in.

01:00:00--> 01:00:18

question. Is it true? You know, I have pictures of people in your house, not for like vital reasons, but for more like just memory reasons. Yeah, I mean, that's, that's not in the area of shirk. I'm not sure. However, we don't, Muslims do not have pictures of people basically hanging up.

01:00:19--> 01:00:33

And the Prophet SAW Salem, actually, in one case, Aisha had, like, a drawing of like, a Solomon's was Sunday. So he took it and he just, you know, they, they took it down, and they made pillows out of it.

01:00:35--> 01:01:08

You know, so, you know, pictures, you can have pictures, in, you know, a book or something like that, but not hanging up on the wall. Therefore, the you'll see, of course, in the master is obvious. Anywhere in the book, we even in our homes, we don't generally we don't have pictures of people, or animals to be hanging up. You're like that. There, but it could be, you know, on something in a book, you know, or whatever, you know, like that. So, so we avoid your the pictures, and some people, some other scholars

01:01:09--> 01:01:15

based on that. When the cameras came, they said cameras are haram, they're forbidden.

01:01:16--> 01:01:21

You can't because it's a picture. And that's someone that's a person who's making pictures, right.

01:01:22--> 01:01:30

So you say It's haram. And I remember, like, I was saying, I remember this brother, you know, we were traveling on this group. And he was like, a real strict, you know, you know,

01:01:31--> 01:01:55

scholar, you know, type of guy. And Ian Wommack is against pictures, everything, don't take any pictures of me, or whatever. But he used to look in the mirror and comb his beard and look at his face all the time, right? Like he loved looking at his face in the mirror, right? So I said, okay, brother, do you know that a camera is your mirror image put onto the paper, okay, now it's going online.

01:01:56--> 01:02:00

But in those days, it's your mirror image, nobody drew that of you.

01:02:01--> 01:02:05

That's the actual image of you put onto the paper.

01:02:06--> 01:02:10

So if you're against this, then you need to stop looking in the mirror.

01:02:13--> 01:02:15

That's different than somebody doing a portrait.

01:02:16--> 01:02:18

That would be different. That could be MUSAWAH.

01:02:21--> 01:02:28

Because the process our lives of persons trying to create life, they're trying to draw like they say it's so lifelike.

01:02:29--> 01:02:42

And whatever, then he will be asked on the day of judgment to put life into this. And if he cannot do it, he'll be thrown in the fire. And idol worship in many cases, we found that our traditions, it began with just a picture.

01:02:43--> 01:02:59

Maybe there was a famous there was a famous person in a community. And when that person died, they wanted to remember the person next generation. So it's a draw a picture of so they drew a picture. And the next generation is kind of what did his body looked like? So can you make like a sort of a statue.

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

So when the next generation came, they started worshipping the statue.

01:03:05--> 01:03:25

So a lot of idol worship comes from stories, Krishna and Shiva. These these are characters, their princes, their their characters, and then it comes into an idol form. You see, so we avoid idolatry under all circumstances, to protect ourself. We'll come up with the last questions now.

01:03:26--> 01:03:27

Going on life.

01:03:29--> 01:04:09

And our current situation here in the West, there have been scientific explanations to address gender possessions, such as drug induced psychosis or post traumatic stress, right? Should you take these two into consideration when conversing about gents, better yet? How to integrate a model that factors involved in treatments? Yeah, so So this is a scientific question based upon, you know, like, what scientists are saying that is drug induced when the gin comes in a person, they say no, it's something drug induced psychological problem. This is the position that the Protestant churches and taken they don't have access anymore. They go to the psychiatry and science and they try to get

01:04:09--> 01:04:10

an explanation there.

01:04:11--> 01:04:18

But there are some cases where there's no science in this, there's something in that person.

01:04:20--> 01:04:24

Okay, and, you know, so we don't look at it in a superstitious way.

01:04:25--> 01:04:30

But it can be a reality. So, we need to be ready, if the reality strikes us.

01:04:32--> 01:04:46

Okay, so at a high level, you know, we need to look at definitely, you know, most of our problems are psychological problems, psychiatric, but there are some cases not psychiatric, this is beyond.

01:04:47--> 01:04:48

This is going in another round.

01:04:50--> 01:04:57

Take any other final questions? Anybody has come to a close? Okay. Why are shrines accepted? And certainly,

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

why a shrine

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

This accepted in Sunni Islam.

01:05:03--> 01:05:46

Okay, shrines are not accepted in Sunni Islam. There are people who have gone away from the Sunnah. And they have, and we're going to deal with this. They have built shrines around the graves of the saints. So they are actually not following the Sunnah. They're not following the way of Prophet Muhammad salah, although they came from that, but their cultures have come into it. People come in coming to Islam, from Hinduism from Buddhism, you know, even Christians had Jesus Christ, you know what not. And then they come into Islam and they sort of want to impose, they still need that image type thing. So they put that onto the graves of saints, and they build shrines. But this will be

01:05:46--> 01:06:08

going into this, this is actually not permitted in Islam, and it can be a form of shirk, if the person is praying to the saints, so they came out of Sunni Islam. And this is so there's no differences Sunni, Shia, this could be anybody, right? But in this case, this is not according to the way of the Quran, or the way of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings.

01:06:09--> 01:06:20

Right, that's our basis. All the cultural things that came afterwards are subject to the basis that comes from the book and the way of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

01:06:21--> 01:07:02

So this is another level we've gone, you know, in dealing with shirk, and we will be continuing on to other forms, there's some very serious issues that we want to deal with, that could be affecting you as a new Muslim, or could be affecting you as a Muslim who's reviving their faith. So continue along with us, if you are within the Toronto area, you can come to 1630 Nelson road, this is you know, in Toronto, you know, Scarborough area, you know, come to us, we now we have a live class, our gathering, also the Muslim Muslim corner, and that will be for the rest of our, you know, period, you know, for the rest of the evening. So, for those who were with us online, we leave you in peace,

01:07:02--> 01:07:18

you may Allah, you know, give us all, you know, a safe journey home, and inshallah we'll see you again next week. So particularly when we have the kind of Chateau La ilaha illa Anta iStockphoto going to be like, after the dat 100 Allahu La Bella Alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
