00:00:59 --> 00:01:36

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Cedro was able Arkadin, Vienna, Mohammed, while Ali he was happy with adequate salah. All praise are due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and peace and blessings be constantly showered upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad, the master of the first and the last, and his family, his companions and all those who call to his way, and establish his sunnah to the Day of Judgment. As to what follows my beloved brothers and sisters, to our friends, our viewers, a Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:01:37 --> 00:01:52

Alhamdulillah, this is a continuation of the new Muslim corner. And the intention of this is to give some solid information concerning Islam to separate Islam from culture.

00:01:54 --> 00:02:47

And then at the same time, part of the session will be one for questions and answers. And so we will be having general questions and answers during our presentation that's live and then there will be 20 minutes half an hour or so extra for those who are actually here, where we have intimate discussion, you know, concerning you know, Islam from different angles. And the the the the concept of the new Muslim, here is not just somebody who has recently embraced Islam, it also means somebody who is reviving Islam. So a person may or may live have lived in a Muslim family for 25 years. But they will only following the culture of their family. They only did things because their father said

00:02:47 --> 00:02:47

to do it.

00:02:48 --> 00:03:12

Or their mother said to do it. And not because they themselves made an intentional choice to do it. And then by the will of Allah, at 25 years old, this person, something happens in their life. And then they realize how valuable Islam really is. And so they embrace it.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:18

And the zeal of a person who has revived their Islam is very similar

00:03:19 --> 00:03:29

to the energy and the enthusiasm of a person who has embraced Islam. But the difference is that the person who is embracing Islam is coming from totally different tradition.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:58

And so there has to be orientated toward what Islam is some of the names, some of the images, some of the cultural parts, but the person who has come from the Muslim world, or a Muslim family, they need a type of orientation as well. Because in many cases, they have to understand what Islam is not.

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

Because they were taught a cultural form of Islam, which for the most part, if you go to the majority of the Muslim countries

00:04:09 --> 00:04:13

75 80% of their culture is Islamic.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:39

But there is a section of their culture that may have come from a previous religion, before they embraced Islam as a people, which could have been 1000 years ago. Or it could be from influences that are coming in, from the mass media, or during the colonial period, whatever it may be. And so therefore, we're trying to

00:04:40 --> 00:04:59

weed out that which is under Slavic to give a general picture of the basis of Islam, and then to try to navigate with the new Muslims to find a way where we can practice Islam in the modern world.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:16

This is not an easy job. But at least we are fortunate that we have the Quran in its original form. And we have the teachings of Prophet Muhammad so seldom, also in our authentic form. So we can return to this.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:18

And we can

00:05:19 --> 00:05:38

read you rejuvenate ourself, the problem that happened with some of the other major revealed religions is that they did not have their original texts, it's all of the other religions, they did not have the original text. So therefore, when somebody came along and said,

00:05:39 --> 00:06:00

This is Christianity, for instance, because maybe Christianity has gone through with the greatest amount of changes, and they come with a new church, like you will see now, the new Zion apostolic church, you know, hundreds of names that are in the name of Christianity.

00:06:02 --> 00:06:15

And so because there is no source to go back to, then that that person who's teaching this new religion, or this new version of Christianity can be very valid.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:19

If he's if he or she is a good preacher, if they teach,

00:06:20 --> 00:06:23

well, then the people will believe them.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:47

So that's the difference in Islam. It's not that we don't have people who will take you astray within the Muslim world. But we have a source that we can go back to No, it's like a fact check. It's like to be able to know whether what is coming to us is authentic, or whether it is not authentic.

00:06:48 --> 00:06:52

And it always surprises me when Easter comes along.

00:06:54 --> 00:06:58

And I speak to my Christian friends, or just the average person and you ask,

00:07:00 --> 00:07:04

this is one of the greatest, if not the greatest Christian holiday of the year.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:16

And Easter, when you say the word Easter, what comes in your mind. And for the majority of the people, what comes in your mind are sister,

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18


00:07:19 --> 00:07:20


00:07:22 --> 00:07:45

okay, fertility symbols, that have nothing to do with Jesus peace be upon him. And we found out that this is part of an ancient pagan religion, who they believe that Australia or Easter, she was a pagan goddess, and they believe after the cold winter, she waved her watch her wand, and everything turned green.

00:07:47 --> 00:07:56

So somehow, it was put together it was brought together when there was great difficulty on the Christian missionaries.

00:07:57 --> 00:08:02

And they use the old concept of when in Rome, do like the Romans do.

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

Or some people say if you can't beat them, join them.

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

So they joined it together. So now, in the ancient tradition,

00:08:14 --> 00:08:20

Easter was the resurrection of the natural world, in the north,

00:08:22 --> 00:08:26

from the winter that killed so many forms of life,

00:08:27 --> 00:08:29

but now they are resurrecting.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:33

So the plants are coming back to life after death.

00:08:35 --> 00:09:00

And it happens on the spring Solstice time, which is the medium point in the spring. Okay, that's when nature really starts to shine, and to come out. And so they mixed it together and they said, Okay, we will put the celebration of the death of Christ and resurrection

00:09:01 --> 00:09:04

on the same date. So you get two for one.

00:09:05 --> 00:09:25

So the people who believed in the resurrection of nature, they're happy, because they have their eggs, and their rabbits, and the person who believe people who believe in the resurrection of Christ, then they're happy, because the whole discussion of the crucifixion, and the death and the resurrection

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

is remembered.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:37

So that's the mixture and a person who believes this. They can look at a Jew, the Christian can look at a Jew and say, I am Christian, and you are Jewish.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:46

But all of the followers of Jesus peace be upon him. were Jewish, every single one of them. There was no Gentiles.

00:09:48 --> 00:09:50

But yet it has changed so much.

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

That it's literally a different religion.

00:09:56 --> 00:10:00

And the problem is, if they had the sources, they could go

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

back to the original teachings of Isa lay slab. But the best that they could do in the Council of Nicaea, in 325 ad in Constantinople,

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

under the Roman Emperor Constantine was to gather the bishops, to gather all of the scriptures, and the writings from Rome, and Antioch, and anywhere they could find them. And they selected

00:10:27 --> 00:10:33

for, in particular, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. They, they selected this and they made what they call a New Testament.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:41

So they put together the Old Testament, and what was left of it, which includes the Psalms of David,

00:10:42 --> 00:10:47

which we consider a different book Zabo, and the Torah,

00:10:48 --> 00:11:09

of Moses Musa alayhis, salam, different book, they put it together, and writings of different scholars and historians, and individuals, they put it all together. And that's Old Testament. And then the new books they call New Testament, and they call the whole thing, Bible,

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

which means a bibliotech, or a library of religious books. So it's all together.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:31

And, but the difference is with Muslims, we have also have different religious expressions and cultural practices came into the Muslim world.

00:11:32 --> 00:12:06

Because Islam spread rapidly within 100 years. Islam spread from the Arabian Peninsula. And this is without mass transportation, communications, anything like this, riding on horses and camels on foot, it spread all the way to China, far north and Russia, Deep South, on the Swahili coast of Africa, and all the way to the Atlantic Ocean in North Africa, in 100 years. Just imagine the distance. So the people who are coming into Islam,

00:12:07 --> 00:12:10

naturally, they had a concept of God,

00:12:11 --> 00:12:14

they had a religious practice. So they brought it into Islam.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:27

And those areas within the Muslim world, where the where the Allah ma, where the scholars were strong, and where learning was widespread. The people could then

00:12:28 --> 00:12:39

sift through the mistakes that they had in their previous religion. And like our great scholar, our CD, Abdul Rahman said, they could correct and authenticate their faith.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

But in the places where they did not have the scholars,

00:12:46 --> 00:12:59

then you find great influences from Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, all types of religions in the Muslim world.

00:13:00 --> 00:13:02

And it was translated into Arabic to

00:13:03 --> 00:13:22

or into the Persian, or into Turkish or other Muslim languages. And so therefore, this is the reason why it's important to understand the foundations and to know what to stay away from. So that's crucial for

00:13:23 --> 00:13:45

the new Muslims. Hopefully, Inshallah, you won't run into many of these things. But just about everybody has been overwhelmed. You know, with so many cultural practices. And so we understood in our foundations, that the most important aspect of Islam is Tawheed.

00:13:46 --> 00:14:02

And that is the oneness of God. monotheism, if a Muslim could be described as anything, one quality that's supposed to stand out about Muslim more than anything else, that is serious, strict belief in one God.

00:14:04 --> 00:14:05

That's what's supposed to stand out.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:12

In many cases, it's more of a cultural thing. It's the clothing, it may be the language,

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

the food,

00:14:15 --> 00:14:19

different cultural things that Masjid the way it looks.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:24

But Tawheed is the most important aspect of the faith.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:33

And that is Tawheed in its complete sense, in the sense that we accept Allah as the Lord Sustainer

00:14:35 --> 00:14:36

we call Rob

00:14:37 --> 00:14:46

also that we unify and believe that Allah is unique in His names and descriptions, not Lisa commit the same.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

There is nothing similar to Allah.

00:14:50 --> 00:14:56

And also that Allah is that Allah alone is divine. divinity.

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

Like where you don't make mistakes where you don't die?

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

Ah, is only Allah has this quality and only Allah deserves worship.

00:15:09 --> 00:15:27

That's so he does a bad. So that means that, you know that's you worship the one God. And is that last form? When Tawheed was being taught to people, many people could say, okay, yeah, there's a great spirit, there's a great God, okay?

00:15:28 --> 00:15:40

He's unique. That's no problem. But then when they said, we're only going to worship Allah, we're not worshiping the idols. We're not worshipping the sun. We're not worshipping your leader.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:45

When that was said, by the prophets, this is where

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

confrontation happened.

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

And this is what we're looking at.

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

Mostly to handle it better.

00:15:55 --> 00:16:02

Because that is that is really the important part that our scholars said to correct and authenticate faith.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:30

Later on, in sha Allah, as we grow in Islam, you can go into the philosophical discussions surrounding the names and descriptions and, you know, it's deep philosophy. And it really doesn't affect us, you know, in the life that will lead leading, but Tawheed or a bad unifying our worship only for Allah. This affects us every single day.

00:16:31 --> 00:16:39

So we also found out that the opposite of Tawheed, is shirk. And that is polytheism.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:57

That is association of partners with Allah, that only Allah deserves the worship and when you have Shahrukh, which means you have a partner with Allah, you pray through something to Allah. And we looked at Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

00:16:59 --> 00:17:13

we looked at different forms of idol worship, where you pray, you know, to the idol, and in some of the Hindu groups, if you ask them, Do you is that idol god, some of them will say, No,

00:17:14 --> 00:17:20

there is a great spirit. But we prayed through the idol to get to God.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:27

Also in ancestor worship, which is very prevalent in Africa, and in China,

00:17:29 --> 00:17:33

it's big in China. And I remember one time, I was in Hong Kong,

00:17:35 --> 00:17:47

and there's a special celebration in China, where they, it, this is for the ancestors. And so they go to the graves, and they sweep the graves.

00:17:48 --> 00:17:57

And they make prayers to the ancestors, because they believe the ancestors are over on the other side. And they will talk to God for them.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:08

And also what they were doing, and it was strange. They were burning money by the grave. So they're lighting like 200 Us 500 British pounds.

00:18:09 --> 00:18:32

So I asked, like, what are they doing? And they say, No, they believe that when you burn that money, that they will get the equivalent in * on the other side, like don't get the equivalent. So you get 100 200 us on the other side. Now, whether they have your banking, International Monetary Fund, or on the other side, I don't know.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

But they were burning the money.

00:18:35 --> 00:18:41

And they felt it more than money's worth in this world, that you're going to be better off when they get it on the other side.

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

And they were doing that.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:55

And we have a slight problem. When we saw even some Muslims were sneaking to the graves. And they were sweeping it. We didn't see anybody burning money.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:11

But we realized this culture was affecting everybody that is shirk, you're going through your ancestor to go to God, instead of going directly to the Creator. You see, that's the essence of shirk.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:17

So we're looking at the major forms of Shirke.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:23

To try to read this out, and to try to have an understanding.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:43

Before we go into the forms, are there any questions that anybody has so far about anything in terms of the Tauheed that we discussed? Or the Shirke? If anybody has any questions, because this is what the concept is, you know, we can, you know, ask the questions as we go along. Okay, so now we're into the Shirke.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:59

Last period, we looked at one form of Shirke in Nevada, he Bader is worship, right. So polytheism in your worship, and we'll just go over it quickly because it leads right into the next one for those who weren't too

00:20:00 --> 00:20:07

Yeah. And that is, there is a practice of wearing certain garments

00:20:08 --> 00:20:16

or talismans. So these are like different like charms, amulets. So you wear this necklace

00:20:17 --> 00:20:29

with sometimes a pouch or whatever, or reading an Islamic chance to seek protection. Once again benefit. These are all forms of shirk.

00:20:31 --> 00:20:51

Okay, and the Prophet SAW Salem, he used to go around because Arabs had the practice of they were Thai amulets with written things on it and different things around their neck, sometimes on their ankles or on their arm. They would tie it on their camels on their horses, and he would go around he would rip it off, take it off.

00:20:52 --> 00:20:56

Okay. And you know, he would tell them very serious.

00:20:58 --> 00:20:59

And one tradition he said,

00:21:01 --> 00:21:03

Men Allah, kata Mima. Wakulla, LA,

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

HK, our colleagues, Santos lab, he said that whoever hangs this amulet, then that will become your protector. Allah is not protecting you anymore. It's only that. Okay, that's your Wali.

00:21:22 --> 00:21:33

And another tradition that we have the translation here. It says Verily, spells, we put spells on people tell us mince.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:42

Right and it's different forms of this talisman can take. Like we have rabbit's foot. Here in the north, we have four leaf clover,

00:21:44 --> 00:21:55

right you can think of different good luck charms right? And the charms and talismans and these things is different in different cultures. The Prophet said there are all forms of shirk.

00:21:57 --> 00:22:11

Now, what is important about that, we learned in a previous class, that Allah said he will not forgive shirk, in the next life. In this life. All sins can be forgiven.

00:22:13 --> 00:22:17

But after death, the only sin which is unforgivable.

00:22:18 --> 00:22:19

It shirk.

00:22:20 --> 00:22:26

unforgivable sin. So this is something really serious, really serious.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:35

And it's something that a new Muslim should be aware of, because you don't want to fall into something, which is like a major problem in your faith.

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

We need to know these things. So the description is that talismans and amulets are objects or a pouch with writing, which is appended on the body or placed in the special area. Right it's made to ward off evil jealousy, like the evil eye right? To protect you from the evil I

00:22:56 --> 00:23:08

also wearing verses of the Quran only for decoration now some people would the question that comes naturally is what if somebody gives me a nice necklace? And it says Allah

00:23:09 --> 00:23:21

write some nice Arabic on it. I had to Corsi, the special verse of the throne, so powerful verses in the Quran. What if somebody gives me that?

00:23:22 --> 00:23:33

Now, the scholars are saying, if you wore that, only for beauty, decoration, just like a jewelry, that there's nothing wrong with it.

00:23:35 --> 00:23:38

But the only problem is when you go into the washroom

00:23:39 --> 00:23:45

you cannot go into the washroom with the name of Allah. So every time that person goes on the washroom they gotta take, have to take it off.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:48

So this is the problem with that.

00:23:50 --> 00:23:57

But if the person believes that what they're hanging now has some power

00:23:58 --> 00:24:01

over the things, that that is shirk.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:31

And it's supposed to protect you from evil spirits from demons, you know, from all types of things, and some people really believe in these amulets ambulance, and some years ago, I was in the Jami mosque here in Toronto, when it was the largest Masjid in the city. And I, you know, did a talk, you know, on this thing. And I said, you know, how many people have amulets can you bring and some of them they brought we had a pile of amulets,

00:24:32 --> 00:24:35

people realize that was wrong, and they took it off.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:39

And some confess that they've been wearing it all their life

00:24:40 --> 00:24:44

and really believed in it. So this is something which is rampant

00:24:46 --> 00:24:52

in the Muslim world, not here in the West, where a lot of cultural practices have changed.

00:24:53 --> 00:25:00

You might not find it as much within the western countries in the UK, but

00:25:00 --> 00:25:03

Muslims tend to have more practices from from the old countries.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:14

But here across the Atlantic, you know, our biggest problem is now the West. Modernization and the things that's coming here, right.

00:25:15 --> 00:25:23

But still, the cultural practices remain from those brothers and sisters who are here. Have any of you ever ran into this before and your families?

00:25:25 --> 00:25:30

Have you heard about it? Like, what is that you that you that that that you saw? My mom always had a

00:25:31 --> 00:25:34

new one. So she had she had her amulet, right?

00:25:36 --> 00:25:38

Did Did they ever say what's inside of the amulet?

00:25:40 --> 00:25:46

I guess they don't really know. Because generally, it's some special person who's going to make it further.

00:25:47 --> 00:25:51

And then he gets here he does that and you pay something back

00:25:57 --> 00:25:59

other religions as well? What's that?

00:26:03 --> 00:26:04

Know Me, let's say

00:26:05 --> 00:26:06

it's in Western society, too.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:13

Yeah, no, it's not specific to Islam. Actually, it's coming from outside of Islam into Islam.

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

And whether it was the pagan Arabs before Islam came to them, or whether it was in other forms of religion, you know, that they ran into there, but they had to like Islam is it

00:26:27 --> 00:26:48

so the people wanted to make it Islamic. So they said, Okay, we will make like a pouch, a leather pouch, and we'll put inside of it writing. So this is sort of like what it looks like this is an example of one of the talismans Okay, when I was in the giant, we got the these talismans, and we opened them up.

00:26:49 --> 00:26:59

And some people were a little nervous, right? Because they didn't know what was inside of it. But it was generally a piece of paper and it had this like they called knucks. It's like a crossword puzzle.

00:27:01 --> 00:27:07

And inside of it is numbers and letters. And sometimes it's got writing around it.

00:27:08 --> 00:27:19

And in one case, there was an amulet and it had Persian writing around fantasy. And one of our brothers, brothers Siddiqui Rahim Allah.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:21

He was a scholar in Persian.

00:27:22 --> 00:27:41

And so he read it and it said, Oh, God, Abdul Qadir jeelani is speaking to a scholarship to college, who is a scholar, by the way, but they start worshipping him after he died. So they said, Oh, Abdulkadir, we are swimming in our sins. Save us. It was praying to abduct Khajiit

00:27:43 --> 00:27:46

and they were wearing it around their neck and they did not know what it said.

00:27:47 --> 00:27:48


00:27:49 --> 00:27:56

So this is now an example. This particular talisman is called the success talisman.

00:27:58 --> 00:28:02

What does it do? And literally, you can go online to take out a website.

00:28:03 --> 00:28:11

So you can go online and find the information. And this one said, carry this talisman for success in business and trade

00:28:12 --> 00:28:31

draw upon a piece of virgin parchment. It should be mentioned here that there are certain rules when writing or drawing a talisman. And this cannot be stated here, for certain reasons, secret, right? Please refer to the various occult books, see the word occult.

00:28:32 --> 00:28:44

Occult means like the Satan worshipers and the ones who are into spirituality and all that right? Literally saying occult. So refer to the occult books on TALISMAN

00:28:45 --> 00:28:52

TALISMAN making or study from a school of traditional Islamic magic.

00:28:53 --> 00:29:05

Lakota enter here. So you got to go to a school for Islamic magic. And everybody has magic too. So some people say well, that's just like, third world thing.

00:29:07 --> 00:29:11

Not just third world thing. You know, Harry Potter. You're the story of Harry Potter.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:19

Harry Potter was went to school, a special school to be trained as as a magician.

00:29:20 --> 00:29:29

And he's a you know, proper British young man. And he went to the to school, proper British school, and they learned how to cast spells

00:29:30 --> 00:29:36

and to do things and it was part of their culture. So it's every culture in the world has a form of this question.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:45

That you were saying earlier about, you know, we always have to go back to when we carry certain things.

00:29:47 --> 00:29:56

So this this reminds me like in the crowd and hear the story inside of it's going to drown and there's the sorcerer's, so we're very clearly taught that we don't

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

have one you

00:30:00 --> 00:30:13

When you're when you're presented with these things, and you're like, oh, this part of Islam is wrong when you go back to the sources, you get that. Just really? That's right. And when you look at the story of Moses Musa alayhis salaam

00:30:15 --> 00:30:19

that the magicians around the Pharaoh had power,

00:30:20 --> 00:30:24

but their power was the power of illusion.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:36

And sometimes these magic cults, they actually have some power to because they studied herbs, they study science, so they have some power.

00:30:37 --> 00:30:44

And the magician's, you could literally throw their their staffs. And it would, it would appear to be snakes.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:53

So Musa alayhis salam on the instructions from Allah through His staff, and it became a large snake and ate up all their snakes.

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

And then the magician submitted to Allah.

00:30:58 --> 00:31:01

So that was real. That was that was magic.

00:31:02 --> 00:31:09

And magic is there. And we will look more into that as we go along. Now, there's another telesummit

00:31:12 --> 00:31:14

and this one is the attraction. Tallis.

00:31:15 --> 00:31:21

It's a construct this talisman and carry it with you, and you will find people attracted to you

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

and supporting your endeavors.

00:31:25 --> 00:31:30

Right, so put a suit on get your talisman, go to Bay Street, go for a job.

00:31:32 --> 00:31:37

And you will find people supporting you because you're wearing this thing.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:38

You see.

00:31:40 --> 00:31:43

The neck gives you the power for this thing to happen.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:50

That's shirk, you are literally giving this object power that only belongs to Allah.

00:31:52 --> 00:31:59

This one here is that is one of the deep ones power that I picked out. And this one is called the Great talisman.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:11

And the great talisman, according to tradition, has been around since the time of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. Now, what is important about that in the second chapter of the Quran

00:32:14 --> 00:32:21

it talks about magic, that when magic was first revealed, it was in Babylon in Iraq,

00:32:22 --> 00:32:38

and Solomon was accused of being a magician, because he could talk to the jinn, he could talk to animals, he had special powers. So according to this discussion, this talisman has been around since the time of Solomon Elisa.

00:32:40 --> 00:33:17

It is said that whoever carries it as angels as companions. Look how powerful this thing is, carry this talisman for protection and luck. It also heals alle ailments. One should be alone while constructing this talisman. It is traditionally drawn with a mixture of oils consisting of misc meaning musk, Zafar on ambergris and rosewater upon virgin parchment of deer or goatskin. The construction is to be done on a Thursday night after fasting and press. You see so they have integrated this into Islamic practices.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:22

You see, because the Prophet SAW Selim used to fast on Mondays and Thursdays, right?

00:33:23 --> 00:33:26

So that's like after you fasted on Thursday, which is Sunday,

00:33:27 --> 00:33:36

see what they did. So they put the magic inside of this. So this exists, this literally exists in the Muslim world.

00:33:38 --> 00:33:39

And that's what it looked like

00:33:40 --> 00:33:45

inside inside the pouch. That is the great talisman. Okay.

00:33:46 --> 00:33:47


00:33:49 --> 00:33:50

other forms of shirk.

00:33:52 --> 00:33:53

One is called rakia.

00:33:56 --> 00:33:57

And Rukia.

00:33:59 --> 00:34:11

is, you know, when people chat, and they and they read certain things on somebody who's sick, or has a problem and they, they read this, you know, upon you

00:34:13 --> 00:34:42

and they're using, they're calling different jinn and different other spirits and whatnot, this is something which is shirk. There is it is permissible to if somebody's sick to read the Quran, to make dua there's certain ways according to the sooner that you can use the Quran to actually help to heal somebody because there's healing in the Quran itself. Okay. And the next form,

00:34:43 --> 00:34:46

this one is called to Allah,

00:34:47 --> 00:34:58

to Allah and to Allah is the bewitchment where the person uses something to gain the love or hatred or emotions of another

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

And this, I've seen this practice, even outside of Islam. That to Allah is, for instance,

00:35:09 --> 00:35:20

there was a woman could be a man too. But in the case of a woman, she wanted this man to fall in love with him. So she went to the person and they said, take this powder,

00:35:21 --> 00:35:23

put it in his coffee, put it in his cap,

00:35:25 --> 00:35:28

okay, get that into his cap. If you get that on his head,

00:35:29 --> 00:35:32

okay, he will fall hopelessly in love.

00:35:33 --> 00:35:34

That's to Allah.

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

Okay, and they sometimes use these things to like, make hatred to

00:35:41 --> 00:35:46

make your children hate you. These are terrible concepts, right? Really evil things.

00:35:47 --> 00:35:52

Okay, but unfortunately, it has come into the Muslim world and there are people who do these things.

00:35:53 --> 00:35:57

So we have to be aware of these forms of shirk.

00:35:58 --> 00:36:06

Okay, so these this is two other forms of it is tila. And that is also considered to be, you know, forms of polytheism.

00:36:08 --> 00:36:11

Other than any questions on on the rock era things?

00:36:13 --> 00:36:36

Were we're spoke a little bit about this, but like, Where does the power come from? Seems like mentioned or called. Right. So like, there's this kind of like, demonic, right? Like, are they working with gyms? For example? Yeah. What is the? What is the form of energy we're giving them? Okay, so the question is, in terms of the form of energy, where's the power come? We're going to go into that now.

00:36:37 --> 00:36:46

Because as that first person said, if you want to know more about the talisman, go to Islamic school of magic. They mentioned magic, right?

00:36:47 --> 00:36:50

So we have to understand what magic actually is.

00:36:51 --> 00:36:54

Okay, any other questions before we go on? To the thing?

00:36:56 --> 00:36:59

Okay, anything online? That anybody has?

00:37:00 --> 00:37:01


00:37:03 --> 00:37:04

How do we know or just

00:37:07 --> 00:37:08

like the federal people's training?

00:37:15 --> 00:37:23

Well, we're going to go into magic now. So we can understand, you know, really what it is, you know, from the source.

00:37:24 --> 00:37:30

But basically, when the person is crawling on power sources other than Allah,

00:37:31 --> 00:37:55

natural things in the natural world, then this is where the circus person is making dua to Allah for to cure. Asking a lot to cure this person has a law to give them victory. That's okay. Because you're asking from the Creator. Allah has angels, laws, power over all things. Right. There are there are miracles that can happen.

00:37:56 --> 00:38:17

But this is what you need to understand and that is a sale and say hi is magic. Okay, the general definition. This is a deep study. But a general definition means all types of sorcery, witchcraft, divination,

00:38:18 --> 00:38:21

necromancy, which means communicating with the dead.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:46

All the different types of sorcery and witchcraft. All of these things that fall under the title in Arabic assefa. So it falls under this title. Okay. And the reality of magic, some people will say that's hocus pocus. That's nothing. It's superstition. If you're Muslim, don't believe in it.

00:38:48 --> 00:38:50

Don't believe in this magic. If you're Muslim,

00:38:52 --> 00:38:53

okay, but it's real.

00:38:54 --> 00:39:00

Why do I say it's real? Because in the second chapter of the Quran verses 101 to 102.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:17

Allah tells us that in the ancient city of Babylon, that two angels came to the city called how route and MA route. The names are mentioned in the Quran. And they came with magic.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:21

And they taught the people magic, but they said to the people,

00:39:22 --> 00:39:29

this is the test, you are being tested. So do not disbelieve in Allah.

00:39:30 --> 00:39:45

So the people of the occult, in most cases believe that the origin of magic itself is going back to Babylon to Tigris Euphrates region. And usually you'll see in

00:39:46 --> 00:39:54

whether it's movies, whether it's you, whatever it is that you read, and see you'll see them going back there. Sometimes they go back to ancient Egypt as well.

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

But mainly to Mesopotamia I remember there was a movie, some of you

00:40:00 --> 00:40:04

years ago, that had come out. This was called

00:40:05 --> 00:40:06

The Exorcist.

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

And at that time,

00:40:11 --> 00:40:31

it was considered to be one of the most frightening movies that was ever made. And that was before before they really had this power they have today, you know of sound and all this today that if they can drive you crazy. So I say don't watch horror movies. I do not watch this. Because it will weaken your heart, right? It's going to weaken your heart.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:44

But this thing came out and the brother said, you know, I'm teaching this okay? What's let's go watch them. We went to watch the movie. The Exorcist. Okay. And the exorcist movie began

00:40:46 --> 00:40:48

in action in Iraq.

00:40:49 --> 00:41:01

Remember, Babylon, right? It began in Iraq, and there was an archeological dig. And somebody went down. And they found this jar or something, and they broke it, and something came out of it.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:16

Okay, and that generally, we would describe it as jindee. It flew to America, of course, where it's gonna go. It flew to America, I think Washington, DC, and somewhere like that, and inhabited a young girl.

00:41:18 --> 00:41:33

So the whole concept of The Exorcist was, how to get it out of this girl. And the Exorcist, the only exorcist that I left, this was back in the 90s. Where were amongst the Catholic Church.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:36

Protestants, they phased it out.

00:41:38 --> 00:41:50

And when I was in the Jeremy Moss, we had all kinds of things coming at us. People who said they were Bewitched, and all kinds of things happening. And I went to, there was one person I went to this prison.

00:41:52 --> 00:41:57

And there was Muslim inmate, they said, this person's bewitched. But they didn't understand this law.

00:41:59 --> 00:42:03

And they said this, this person is standing in his cell.

00:42:05 --> 00:42:14

And he keeps standing there, and he bends down. And then he goes up and down like this. He's crazy. And I said, No, this man is in good shape he's making so not

00:42:15 --> 00:42:27

like they didn't know what Salaat was, right? But there was there was a case of a sister was something inside. Now my I am not an exorcist.

00:42:28 --> 00:42:51

Okay, and I went to the minister. And he said, in Protestant Protestants, we do not believe that we go to science. So we say psychological problem, physiological product, Catholics. And he said, there's only about five exocyst left on the East Coast of America. It's only five. And the most famous one was in Philadelphia.

00:42:52 --> 00:43:30

So this is a person amongst the Catholics. If you say, You're Bewitched, then he, they come and they will take this thing out of you. Of course, they probably they don't have any work today. Because if you act crazy and say, you'll be Witched, they'll probably give you a job in the government now. Right? You'll actually you'll, you'll actually you like, you'll actually get a grant, you might get a grant for your association, right? You know, so all that stuff is like gone. Now. It's considered to be like hocus pocus religions being phased out of the society and there's a war on Christianity, serious war on Christianity, not just Islam.

00:43:32 --> 00:43:38

So the point that I'm saying is, the movie began in Iraq.

00:43:40 --> 00:43:47

Okay. And you'll see this over and over again, the Quran is showing us that's where the magic started.

00:43:48 --> 00:43:49

And it started to spread.

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

And especially the children of Israel, this is where the, the Israelites, they were tested with this.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:01

They were tested and some of them follow the magic.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:08

And they started to worship a bull when Moses when Moses went up into the mountain,

00:44:10 --> 00:44:20

okay. So therefore, they were heavily tested with this, and they have within Judaism, they have what is called Kabbalah.

00:44:21 --> 00:44:21


00:44:22 --> 00:44:27

and the Kabbalah is the spirituality of Judaism.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:32

But the danger is, it can go into magic.

00:44:34 --> 00:44:52

Similarly, with Muslims, we have a thing, it's alchemy, Alchimia because you can study alchemy and chemistry and these things are a physical sense, or you can study metaphysical. So the metaphysical study is where the magic comes in.

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


00:44:55 --> 00:45:00

And so, that's the first point. The second point is that the last two chapters

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

As of the Quran, were revealed to protect us from magic and from the jinn.

00:45:08 --> 00:45:10

So if magic was not a reality,

00:45:11 --> 00:45:27

then why would Allah have revealed CIRTL Philip, where it is saying, you know, colossal, but I will follow up that you are seeking refuge on the Lord of the dawn, men, shuddering McCulloch, the front from the evil of what Allah has created.

00:45:29 --> 00:45:32

Right? Women shelter enough authority for Lacan.

00:45:33 --> 00:45:50

And from the evil of women who blow in the nuts, there are different forms of in Mecca of magic men and women. But there was a form where the women magicians, some measure they did they blow in these knots, so it's called Nefertiti for

00:45:52 --> 00:45:58

women, shadowy has hidden either hazard. And we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of the jealous person,

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

if they put that envy and jealousy on you.

00:46:03 --> 00:46:06

So what is so this you're supposed to read this chapter,

00:46:07 --> 00:46:20

if you feel evil around you, and certain nests, which is the last chapter, about the jinn we have seeking refuge from the evil gem. So magic for us is a reality.

00:46:22 --> 00:46:28

Okay, we're not saying it's total Hocus Pocus, if you run into it, you got to take it serious.

00:46:29 --> 00:46:31

You cannot joke around with this thing.

00:46:32 --> 00:46:33

I was living

00:46:34 --> 00:46:36

in Jamaica for a while.

00:46:37 --> 00:46:39

I had lived for four years in Jamaica.

00:46:40 --> 00:47:03

And my family was there at that time we had about we had five children at that time. And we were living outside of Kingston and this beautiful area has tropical rainforests. Jamaica is a beautiful place, tropical rainforest, all types of fruits and everything like that. And the person who owned our place, live down below us.

00:47:04 --> 00:47:08

And one night, I looked out the window. And he was

00:47:09 --> 00:47:19

an African man ducks give me a bald head and bit and I looked at he was like sitting, and he was doing some kind of spells. And I said, Oh Allah, this is the magician here.

00:47:20 --> 00:47:26

And so after a few months, the rents went up, and he wanted to kick us out the house.

00:47:27 --> 00:47:33

So he told us, You have to leave the house. We said no. We're staying in the house. And first,

00:47:34 --> 00:47:35

he threatened us.

00:47:36 --> 00:47:48

He threatened that he's going to get his boys and whatever. Because Kingston at that time was rough. But the Muslims are organized. And we had a reputation. So that didn't work. And then

00:47:50 --> 00:47:53

the woman who was working for us, she

00:47:55 --> 00:48:06

she said that, you know, we opened up the door one day, and we looked in front of the door and there was egg shells, and here and all kinds of stuff like in the front of the door, right?

00:48:07 --> 00:48:19

So we went to the made me say what is this? So she said, I know somebody who's gifted lives down in the valley. So she brought this woman and a woman

00:48:20 --> 00:48:24

couldn't speak. Right? And she looked at and she went

00:48:25 --> 00:48:30

start pointing around. And I made said, this woman said,

00:48:31 --> 00:48:32

all your children are going to die.

00:48:34 --> 00:48:42

Like if you don't leave this house, all your children are going to die. So this is serious right? Now, if you believe in magic, right?

00:48:44 --> 00:48:51

You will start to cry and shaken everything because this is real, right? It was there. We swept it up, threw it away.

00:48:53 --> 00:49:11

And we clean the house. We started fasting. We read surah Yaseen, we played Surah, Yaseen, you know, chapters of the Quran, and we functioned as Muslims. Nothing happened to us. Everybody was waiting for something to happen. All the people on the road all around there waiting for us. Nothing happens.

00:49:13 --> 00:49:14

Because it was superstition, right?

00:49:15 --> 00:49:22

A lot of the power of magic is based upon the superstition of the people who believe in it.

00:49:24 --> 00:49:27

If you don't accept the power of magic,

00:49:29 --> 00:49:32

most of the magic power, it doesn't have much power over you.

00:49:33 --> 00:49:41

But you need to know what it is. Because they can put something in your drink. They can do some things they can physically hurt you, right?

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

And there may be cases extreme cases we'll talk about where the jinn are involved, but in the definition of magic,

00:49:52 --> 00:49:54

magic can be

00:49:57 --> 00:50:00

the speed of the hand and the problem

00:50:00 --> 00:50:01

sallam said that in the end,

00:50:03 --> 00:50:06

you know, he said that in speech there is magic.

00:50:07 --> 00:50:10

So some people in their speech they can like trick you.

00:50:11 --> 00:50:15

It's a form of trickery. But what we're talking about

00:50:17 --> 00:50:17


00:50:18 --> 00:50:28

how it looks, basically what the Quran is saying. Just so you can see the translation, and it says,

00:50:29 --> 00:50:51

And they followed what the devils chanted of sorcery in the reign of, of Solomon. And so they may have been prophets with a man was not an unbeliever. But the devil is disbelief, meaning that the jinn they taught men, sorcery, and such things as came down to the two angels at Babel, ha root and Maru, this is the Quran.

00:50:53 --> 00:51:01

Yet these two taught no man until this ad said, Surely we are only a trial, therefore do not disbelieve.

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

Even then people learn from from these these two Magic by which they might cause a separation between a man and his wife.

00:51:13 --> 00:51:22

And they cannot hurt with it, anyone except what Allah's permission. And they learned what harm them and did not profit them.

00:51:23 --> 00:51:41

And certainly, they knew that the buyers of magic would have no share, and the happiness of the Hereafter, and evil was the price for which they sold their souls if they only knew. So the Quran has given you the history of how magic came down.

00:51:43 --> 00:51:46

And one of the worst things that a magician can do

00:51:47 --> 00:51:52

and what what the shaytaan will the other biller loves the most is the separation of husband and wife.

00:51:54 --> 00:51:58

That's, that's what they love. Okay.

00:52:01 --> 00:52:02

What are some of the types of magic

00:52:05 --> 00:52:23

there's the type of magic like in the current, you know, it's enough authority for local blowing into knots, casting spells. You see Harry Potter, he had his wand and he threw you can throw the spells that you know, if you go to these, there's literally schools of magic.

00:52:24 --> 00:52:30

In all cultures, you'll have certain Obeah men and we in Caribbean we say Obeah man.

00:52:31 --> 00:52:39

So you say the Obeah man in in South Africa. I lived in South Africa for a long time. And in in South Africa and Cape Town they have a consent Goma.

00:52:41 --> 00:52:53

And these sangomas are really powerful magicians. I mean, the things that they do to get the magic, I can't even say it in the class. But there was one brother named Yusuf,

00:52:54 --> 00:53:04

he was born, they believe that he was a magician from when he was born, because the certain signs they see on a person right. So when you said was young,

00:53:07 --> 00:53:09

they brought the sangomas to him.

00:53:10 --> 00:53:29

And when the sangomas looked at use of they said, he's too big for us, take them to the other ones. So they had to go to the top sangomas. And they said, This boy is gifted. So they brought him into the order, and they taught him and by the will of Allah, He accepted Islam.

00:53:30 --> 00:53:33

And so he told us some of the things that happened to him.

00:53:34 --> 00:53:50

Now, this is real testimony because he was one of them, right? And he said they were doing things down by the water. And he said he saw smoke turned into like, human forms and moving on the water and he saw crazy things, right. So they have some power.

00:53:52 --> 00:53:59

They do have some power. But as the Quran said, it cannot harm you. Unless Allah allows it.

00:54:01 --> 00:54:04

Like that one in Jamaica, Allah did not allow

00:54:05 --> 00:54:06

didn't happen.

00:54:07 --> 00:54:13

So you have to believe that if something does touch you from the magician's, it's a test.

00:54:14 --> 00:54:17

It may be a purification. But there's a reason for

00:54:19 --> 00:54:29

another form of magic is summoning the jinn to perform acts of good and evil. So you actually

00:54:30 --> 00:54:49

call the gym, you summon them. And there's different ways of doing this. You know, in many of the societies, they I know in the Caribbean, they will do drums, and they'll do certain things in Jamaica, they had a thing where they

00:54:50 --> 00:54:53

they play in the drums, and then they set a table

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

with food. And then they roll their bellies they call roll on the belly. So you do it

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

That's where you're sort of moving around your bellies moving around. And they said, Edward C. Agha, the prime minister, he was, he was an Arab guy, so he could roll his belly, you know, better than anyone on the island, right? You know, and so that you roll your belly, and the thing gets all into a thing. And suddenly you turn around, and all the food on the table, it's gone.

00:55:21 --> 00:55:26

It's gone. Right. And then somebody in the group, usually a woman

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

gets inhabited.

00:55:30 --> 00:55:33

And she will start to talk in tongues.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:38

They'll say all kinds of languages. This happens in the Christian church to you know,

00:55:40 --> 00:56:01

take, we call it talking in tongues. And in some cases, you will dance around, and the young men will dance with this. And all the young men get tired. And after, then she sits down. And then special people come to her and they start asking her questions. Tell me about this. Tell me about that. And she answers another voice comes out of her.

00:56:02 --> 00:56:05

Okay, so in order to do all these things,

00:56:06 --> 00:56:08

okay, you got to study.

00:56:09 --> 00:56:13

So you go to these people, and you got to sacrifice something.

00:56:15 --> 00:56:22

In Haiti, you're the island of Haiti, right? They have a voodoo, they have a magic trick of voodoo.

00:56:23 --> 00:56:26

And this Voodoo is really bad stuff.

00:56:27 --> 00:56:44

One patient had accepted Islam. I met him in Montreal. And he said back to our for me, because I'm going back to Haiti. And he said, Ah, magicians are so strong, they fly the flying era. He said, magicians in Haiti are insane.

00:56:45 --> 00:56:46

He said, Make dua for me,

00:56:47 --> 00:56:54

is really bad thing that the things that they do. And they have, and they have zombies, right? I don't want to scare you for tonight, right.

00:56:56 --> 00:57:06

But they have zombies, where they inhabit the person and they put this thing on people, but they have things which are, which can be explained scientifically.

00:57:08 --> 00:57:18

Like for instance, when they want to make a zombie out of a person, they will give that person certain poisons, and that person dies, or appears to be dead.

00:57:19 --> 00:57:21

And they bury the person in the grave.

00:57:23 --> 00:57:29

And after everybody leaves, they come to the grave, open it up. And they give you the antidote.

00:57:30 --> 00:57:34

And you're laying there looking up, and he's standing over you.

00:57:36 --> 00:57:39

And he's saying like you want to live, you have to obey me

00:57:40 --> 00:57:56

that imagine the trauma that that person has gone through how you're traumatized, right. That's why the zombies are like this case, zombies today or in movies and stuff like that. But these are real zombies, you can go to Haiti, they used to have before zombies, you see them.

00:57:57 --> 00:58:13

Okay, they're traumatized people, traumatized by the magicians, but they found out that this poison that they give, it's something from some creature of the sea, it's something that it makes your body go into a what appears to be a form of death.

00:58:15 --> 00:58:20

But it shuts down your body, which is still alive. There's other cultures that have this as well.

00:58:22 --> 00:58:27

And you know, either after a period of time you'll come back, or there's an antidote you come back.

00:58:28 --> 00:58:45

So the concept of the magic here, you know, that happens is that the people are summoning Chin's creatures from smokeless fire, in order to do perform acts of good or evil.

00:58:46 --> 00:59:01

Now, in most cases, people do not summon Jen to do good Muslims, because it's not within our teachings to do this. And the provinces on did not allow it. So mainly, what they're summoning the jinn to do is evil.

00:59:02 --> 00:59:07

So these creatures of smokeless fire, that we believe are real,

00:59:08 --> 00:59:13

we don't see them. For the most part, they're on a parallel world.

00:59:15 --> 00:59:22

But in order to go over to the parallel world, you study forms of magic. That's what the magic is.

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

It's the study how to communicate, how to bring this force there. You know, the, the Muslims even made fairy tales out of it. kalila were domna they had 1001, Arabian Nights, and they wrote different things. And then they had the Jimny, right, Open sesame. You know, the jindee comes right, the genie of the lamp, right? So you rub the lamp and the genie comes, and they'll give you three wishes. So they made a joke out of it. But actually, there was there was societies that study how to communicate with these evil forces. And then how to you

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

cause them to do things.

01:00:03 --> 01:00:09

That's where they're getting their magic. If they do, but in 90% of the cases, it's superstition.

01:00:10 --> 01:00:13

They stick they psych you out psychologically right?

01:00:14 --> 01:00:22

They psych you out 90% of the cases. So there's nothing really, but 10%

01:00:23 --> 01:00:36

some of them, they do have magic. And that's the reason why, especially for the new Muslims, when we're making wudu when we're cleaning ourselves, right, when we're saying Allahu Akbar,

01:00:37 --> 01:00:46

when we're reading from the Quran, when we eat halal food, permissible food, when we stop swearing,

01:00:47 --> 01:01:01

you are purifying your body. You're purifying your spiritual self. So these evil forces can't touch you. One person described it, they were describing Muslim, they said Muslims, like have a dome over them.

01:01:02 --> 01:01:03

It's like a spiritual dome.

01:01:05 --> 01:01:09

You're literally protected. And these things may be even coming at you.

01:01:10 --> 01:01:13

But when you're living in Islamic life,

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

okay, then

01:01:17 --> 01:01:26

it just, it just goes away. Because it's just too much. Because you purified yourself and all the things that we're doing fasting in Ramadan

01:01:27 --> 01:01:28


01:01:29 --> 01:02:03

the money that you have given two and a half percent to the poor and the needy, it's called the cat. The cat means purity. It means purifying your wealth. Hajj, is purifying your whole life. So the whole essence of Islam is purity. Tawheed is purifying your beliefs, you see. So the whole of Islam is purifying you, in order that you can be in communication with Allah, protected by Allah, and the evil forces cannot harm you.

01:02:04 --> 01:02:12

That's the essence of what Islam is. But magic is opposite. So they are using these forces.

01:02:14 --> 01:02:17

And sometimes they even use these things to tell fortunes.

01:02:19 --> 01:02:20

You know, I was just riding along

01:02:21 --> 01:02:22


01:02:24 --> 01:02:27

It's by Morningside, just when you get to shepherd when you come off the 401.

01:02:28 --> 01:02:40

And on the left side of the road, you had a big sign, and it was talking about a fortune teller, you can come to her lady such and such. And she will do this for you she had a big sign on the road.

01:02:42 --> 01:02:46

Because people go to these these fortune tellers, sometimes they have a crystal ball.

01:02:47 --> 01:02:49

Sometimes they have tea leaves,

01:02:51 --> 01:02:58

sometimes they throw bones or whatever, they do different things in order to tell fortunes.

01:02:59 --> 01:03:24

And in many cases, or in some cases, few of the cases, they're actually communicate with the jinn. And they can get they can hear knowledge. And, you know, from our sources, the Quran talked about the jinn stealing into the heavens, when things are coming down from above seven heavens and the jinns now can go there, they can hear certain things, and they can bring it back.

01:03:25 --> 01:03:31

But the person who's communicating with the jinn, most of what they hear from the jinn is not true.

01:03:32 --> 01:03:35

But some of it can be true.

01:03:36 --> 01:03:53

So what a fortune tellers doing, when you come in, they psychologically they psych you out, tell me something about yourself. So you start talking about yourself where you're from their reading, you write, so they can judge who you are. And they'll say certain things and if you nod like that, then they know that you agree

01:03:55 --> 01:03:56

and they use psychology

01:03:57 --> 01:03:59

and they try to psych you up

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


01:04:06 --> 01:04:07

Oh yeah, right.

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


01:04:11 --> 01:04:14

the fortune telling,

01:04:15 --> 01:04:18

okay, and the prophets are seldom said very clearly,

01:04:19 --> 01:04:37

Ben atta are often for SallAllahu and che was a Doctor Who, but allah sallallahu Arbaeen a human. He said Whoever goes to a fortune teller and ask them something and believes it. Their Prayer is not valid for 40 days.

01:04:38 --> 01:04:50

And another case he said at the end of the Hadith for cod Kathrada Allah Hoon zilara Muhammad, that person has committed disbelief. If you go to the fortune teller

01:04:51 --> 01:04:52

and you believe them,

01:04:53 --> 01:04:59

finished palm readers. They can look at your palms, your lines and your and your palms.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:14

and they can tell that's the lifeline. That's your this thought you're going to be successful. They will read your poems, and Muslims got into they even had a palm reader the thing. You know, it was Karachi they had down by the water in Pakistan.

01:05:15 --> 01:05:16

They have palm readers.

01:05:18 --> 01:05:21

Okay. Do you ever see that they're in Karachi?

01:05:22 --> 01:05:24

Yeah, this palm read is famous, right?

01:05:26 --> 01:05:43

And so this, they make business out of it. And the last form of this, which we're going to go into next week and Sharla will go deeper into this. Because this, you know, it takes more than one period. And that's possession by the gym.

01:05:44 --> 01:05:46

Okay, but basically,

01:05:47 --> 01:05:50

for you to understand, number one,

01:05:51 --> 01:05:56

okay, because we'll go over this again, magic is considered disbelief.

01:05:57 --> 01:06:00

Okay. And shirk.

01:06:01 --> 01:06:07

Okay. And it's considered to be a capital punishment, a crime, capital crime

01:06:09 --> 01:06:17

and punishment in Islamic court. If the person does not repent, if they continue to do this magic, it could be capital punishment.

01:06:18 --> 01:06:20

For fossa, okay.

01:06:22 --> 01:06:38

And, but the key thing about magic, and I got to open up the floor for our final questions. The key thing about magic is the greatest power of the the magician is, in the mind of the people.

01:06:39 --> 01:06:42

It's superstition, is to psych you out.

01:06:43 --> 01:06:56

Some of them also have forms of power. And we need to purify yourself. If you're basically following the Islamic forms of purity. You don't have a problem.

01:06:58 --> 01:07:13

This brother called me, we had a hotline at this office that we used to have. And they call me and he said, Brother, Abdullah, you got to help us. I said, What is wrong? My wife is seeing this big black object at the bottom of the bed.

01:07:14 --> 01:07:16

And it comes periodically.

01:07:17 --> 01:07:18

And I say, okay, take it easy, brother.

01:07:19 --> 01:07:21

I said take it easy.

01:07:22 --> 01:07:22

And I said

01:07:24 --> 01:07:24

to you,

01:07:26 --> 01:07:27

do you make salad?

01:07:28 --> 01:07:37

And they said, Oh, you know, Canada's really difficult I work and no, sometimes we do. Said, Okay, I said, Do you eat halal food?

01:07:38 --> 01:07:41

So not as not many Halal shops in Canada, so we just eat anything.

01:07:43 --> 01:07:49

Okay. And so I said, what I was saying to them, I said, you know, as I was talking, he said, it's in the room.

01:07:51 --> 01:07:58

And his wife was on the phone, too. And then they started, you know, going on, I said, Brother, you have to practice Islam.

01:07:59 --> 01:08:12

Your solution is just practice Islam. You see, their problem was they were not praying. They're not eating Hello. They're not purifying themselves at all. Right? I said, you know, don't ask, I'm not the Pope.

01:08:14 --> 01:08:17

Right? You know, don't come to me like I'm the Pope of the Vatican.

01:08:19 --> 01:08:22

Right York cure is in the religion itself.

01:08:24 --> 01:08:45

See, but that's our problem. We have so many superstitions, and so many fears that are innocent, it governs the way we think. The more you depend upon Allah, the stronger your belief in Allah becomes, the more you depend on Allah, these things fall away. You won't even be bothered by it. But as the ones that are weak in their faith,

01:08:46 --> 01:08:51

and they go around these evil environments that can get caught in this thing.

01:08:52 --> 01:09:00

So before we close, I want to see if there's any general questions anybody has, in the final moments of this class floors up online?

01:09:01 --> 01:09:11

Yeah. How would you identify the German person who has an ability to move that is good for property? occupants makes a lot of

01:09:13 --> 01:09:13


01:09:15 --> 01:09:39

Yeah, so so. So the question is, how can you identify a legitimate person, you know, to help you and you for the details of this, we're going to go somewhat in the class next week. But basically, if somebody claims to be someone who can help you, you have to look at that person, right? If they're really practicing Islam or not, and you got to ask somebody, aside from that person about him.

01:09:40 --> 01:09:59

Does that person really practice Islam? And if the cues that they're giving you are coming from the Quran, they're coming from the way of the Prophet you know, then you're okay when the person starts giving you a spell and starts new new, you're doing these different things. You know, don't make business off of you by writing the amulets

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

And they tried to get your money, you got to avoid this type of crisis. So you need to check the practice of the person because there is an Islamic way of,

01:10:11 --> 01:10:18

you know, dealing with these things next week Inshallah, we'll go more into the details in terms of, you know, possession by the Jim, question.

01:10:21 --> 01:10:22

Can you also explain

01:10:27 --> 01:10:28

Okay, the Wii G.

01:10:31 --> 01:10:42

You know, is another form of magic. And where they literally, you know, are around this board, and I don't know the details of it. But once you you know, set it up and whatnot.

01:10:43 --> 01:10:54

You know, it starts to move. Pieces of it start to move. And it's, it can tell you a fortune. It can do different things like that. It's another form of magic.

01:10:55 --> 01:11:02

And they have a thing called seance where they hold hands, you know, and then they call upon forces

01:11:03 --> 01:11:14

with the seance and they say they hear a voice and you know, whatever. And so this is like the seance. And these things I don't know about now, by knowing in the 90s 80s things were big in the 90s.

01:11:15 --> 01:11:39

Right, these big boards and this eaching thing they called you then the seances you know, but you know, these are forms of magic. And we do not believe in them. We go directly to the creator, you know, the remembrance of Allah, the purification of our lifestyle, you know, not getting involved in superstitions. You know, like I say, don't you know, if you watch horror movies, you need to stop

01:11:40 --> 01:11:42

because it will weaken your heart.

01:11:43 --> 01:11:53

Because the sounds that they have now, the flashes that they put on you. And sometimes they're called subliminal. Like you can't see it, it's flashing things that you

01:11:54 --> 01:11:57

it'll, it'll come out when you're sleeping at night.

01:11:58 --> 01:12:14

It'll affect you in your life. So there's no sense in weakening our hearts for entertainment sake. But some people really get a lot out of this entertainment. But it is it is it is a really bad practice, you should try to avoid this as much as you can.

01:12:15 --> 01:12:15


01:12:18 --> 01:12:19

Okay, yeah.

01:12:22 --> 01:12:43

Yes, so next week in sha Allah, because we have part of this class to be a general, you know, gathering. Next week, we will go into some of the different things that you can actually read, but I can give you something from now, there's a verse in the Quran AYATUL kursi. This is the second chapter, verse 255,

01:12:44 --> 01:12:48

you need to try to memorize this chapter, this verse

01:12:50 --> 01:12:52

in Arabic, and as a chapter call Yacine

01:12:54 --> 01:12:55

is also powerful.

01:12:57 --> 01:13:00

The last two chapters of the Quran is short,

01:13:01 --> 01:13:03

right to memorize those

01:13:04 --> 01:13:11

as well. And Inshallah, next week, I will bring you some, some do ours as well, that you can have,

01:13:12 --> 01:13:28

but mainly those last two chapters of the Quran, you know, believing in Allah, not accepting superstition, then you find that Heroes is not going to bother you at all. It's the people who fill their minds with this foolishness, then it comes back on them, and it bothers them.

01:13:29 --> 01:13:30

And the other general questions.

01:13:31 --> 01:13:36

I think you might go into this in the next lesson, but how powerful

01:13:39 --> 01:13:41

the jinn are very powerful.

01:13:42 --> 01:13:50

They're made from smokeless fire, they can do a lot of different things, they can move around in the time of Prophet Solomon, so the malaise to them.

01:13:51 --> 01:14:07

One of the one of the birds that he was in touch with, found this the kingdom of Sheba piece, which is like Ethiopia, right, she had a palace and in Yemen, and her base was Ethiopia. Place Called Exxon. And it reported back

01:14:09 --> 01:14:12

the bird reported back to Saudi man that she had this beautiful throne.

01:14:13 --> 01:14:24

You know, so the man, you know, said basically, you know, who could bring me this, this throne, and it was one of the jinn and efreet. And then before he blinked his eye, it was there.

01:14:25 --> 01:14:26

So that's powerful, right?

01:14:28 --> 01:14:30

That's mean to go to the area was now Jerusalem,

01:14:32 --> 01:14:33

all the way to Ethiopia.

01:14:34 --> 01:14:38

And get it and come back within the blink of twinkling of an eye. That's power.

01:14:39 --> 01:14:47

But fortunately, they have no power over us. Generally, they can affect us there in another world.

01:14:48 --> 01:15:00

But what these evil people try to do is to is to use them and to get that power and to do evil things. You know, based upon that, but generally, you know, the all the different apps

01:15:00 --> 01:15:03

specks of Islam gives us like a dome of protection

01:15:04 --> 01:15:15

that surrounds us. So the more you learn these things, you're literally protecting yourself from evil, the more Islam that you practice, and the higher you get near Islamic knowledge.

01:15:17 --> 01:15:19

The other general questions are anybody has

01:15:25 --> 01:15:27

the smudging that is

01:15:28 --> 01:15:29

with tobacco, tobacco,

01:15:31 --> 01:15:33

yeah, with the sage and you know, whatever.

01:15:35 --> 01:15:37
