So let me remind you very quickly, we talked about the causes and the reasons for the causes.
And the reasons why people become one one, Kareena Hades or
they are guilty of they are suffering from in Cairo, Hades.
Sometimes it is due to ignorance. And most times, in my opinion, it is due to ignorance with Islamic sciences. Some people make assumptions about Islamic sciences, they think
that what they think is true about Islam.
That's the assumption. They think Islam has to fit into the social construct, social conditioning, every single human on the planet is conditioned,
every single person
in the world
is conditioned by environment, by culture, by language, by upbringing,
by the politics by the weather, call it the climate, it can be a number of factors that condition, the thinking and the being of a person. Do you all agree with that? Yes. So people from Pakistan are not like the people from Brazil.
And people from Nigeria are not exactly the same as the people of Sweden
and why they are different. I'm not talking about the looks and the ethnicity I'm talking about how they feel, how they think, how they talk, how they express the views, all of that,
because they have gone through different
procedures or being conditioned
sometimes is the fashion that conditioned your mind the dominant thought
or the political system that conditioned you
For example, I give you examples in the last session that
when mogadore governing India, the culture was very dominant, the Mughals had formed a culture there was a court culture, there was a fashion that was going on Persian poetry was very popular among the the literati of that society people would write poetry in Persian
just to make a place in the society right just to be accepted among the educated people of the society your Persian had to be good you Arabic had to be good, okay. Not necessarily your Hindi Urdu by the way Hindi
is a spoken language of North India or do is a child of Hindi
the language you speak or do is originally an Indian language.
And Hindi has a very strong influence
on it from Sanskrit
while with or do we have a very strong influence from the Arabic and the Persian language.
So although became the language of the Muslims in the subcontinent mainly in the 18th century, it became a literary language while previously wasn't a literary language as such, Persian was the Persian language was a literary language pre 18th century India.
So, the fashion was that people used to learn these languages and even Hindus believe it or not, and Sikhs had become Persian ised or Islam ified
depending on how you want to see it.
The Sikh gurus
you know, the sick, dumb religion Sikh religion, you know about it? Yes. Yeah.
Sikhs believe in 10 gurus.
And if you look at the the last guru Guru Gobind Singh, if you look at his paintings, old ones, he looked like a mogul, his turban, his mobile, his Commission's mobile, his pijama his mobile, right. The way it's dressed the armory, the saddle, the way you know the culture he you know, he is actually he has been mobilized.
He wrote poetry in Persian
is a famous poem attributed to him calls of Anima which he wrote to the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb alamgir to express his feelings about the situation he was going through. Likewise, Hindus
They wrote in Persian, there were Hindus who were writing poetry in Persia, they had become Persian ized because of the culture because of the environment, the conditioning, then the British came in the culture changed in the 19th century, they become anglicized. The Mughal clothing was put aside and the English clothing was put on.
So, because English became the dominant power, politically, people started to dress like the English they started to speak the English language, Persian language was put on the shelf
it was shelved. six centuries, Muslims are expressing themselves in the Persian language mainly from the period starting from the Delhi Sultanate, you know,
the government or their dominance
up to the Mughal period, the decline of the Mughals
then the British became a dominant power and everyone started to the Hindus became anglicised, right and the Muslims are still struggling with this cultural clash of cultures, right. Some Muslims have chosen to adopt.
Some Muslims have chosen to adopt
the previous culture.
Call it the Mongol culture of the Islamic culture of the Persian culture of the Arabic culture, and others had adopted the English culture.
This is why Aligarh University was formed. The reason why I'm telling you these things is to understand that people just don't come up with ideas out of the blue. Those ideas have background. They have reasons they have causes, right. So in Carroll Hades is another idea that came to prominence due to
Western thinking, or colonial colonial thinking colonial influences. Some of the questions people asked today about Hades and the doubts people cast on Hades literature, the Sunnah of the Prophet salla salaam is because of these external influences, we have been affected.
Maybe you don't know you have been affected.
The reason why you dress the way you are.
And this is not I'm not taking a dig. This is the reality of the times. Some of the brothers here in front of me who are evidently practicing Muslims, but they are dressed in in if you want to call it Western clothing, right or English clothing or call it, you know, Western, I like to use the term Western clothing. We know what we mean by the West, the West is towards the west, okay. Generally, it refers to Western Europe, or Western civilization. Okay. And again, to clarify, this is not a dig at the western civilization, there are great things about the western civilization, that are great achievements in the western civilization, like they were in the Islamic civilization. And like there
is potential to repeat the same within the Islamic civilization, right. But we have been affected positively without having realized it.
If the fashion at the time
to wear a turban, with a flower popping up, right, from the turban, or wearing jewels on the turban, or wearing gowns, if for example, mobile were to return today,
if the moguls were to return today, or if the Ottomans were to come back to power in this current day and age, and they were the dominant political, economic and military power in the world, are you listening and with military and economic strength comes academic strength. Because you have the money, you can fund universities, you can fund scholars who right top of the range works in philosophy in literature and poetry and history, their research is the top so other people start to adopt your ways, because you are dominant, culturally, economically, politically and academically.
academia academic progress is directly linked to economic prosperity.
Like Will Durant, you know one of the philosophers he said that civilization
consists of four elements, a civilization this content z cache, it consists of four elements.
And those elements are what? Number one,
economic prosperity. Number two political stability. Number three pursuit of knowledge and arts. Number four more traditions.
These are the four elements that make a civilization
and all of these four elements rest upon
One pillar. And that pillar is a sense of security, justice, justice and security are laws and mazoon.
If there is no justice, you won't have security. Okay. And when you have security when your society secure, then you start to make progress. So all of these four elements rests upon one pillar and that pillar is called security, a sense of security.
So economic provisions are linked to political stability and political stability is linked to pursuit of knowledge and arts and pursuit of knowledge and arts is linked to moral traditions.
And all of these four elements were
important ingredients of the Islamic civilization. That's why the Islamic civilization is known as the Islamic civilization, Islamic civilization. Your zebra Islami is based upon the Islamic tradition. Without the Islamic tradition, there is no Islamic civilization is simple. Without the Quran, and the Sunnah, that explains the Quran, there is no Islamic civilization. You cannot imagine the child without the Mother, do you agree? Who comes first the child to the mother?
chicken and egg argument? Hmm, who comes first?
Who comes first? Shabbat Ma. Some
mothers come first. Yeah. It's really remarkable comment.
This is why the sort of Lhasa Salam he talks so much about the rights of mothers. So mothers come first. So Quran is the mother of Islamic civilizations, or civilization, if you want to put it in one basket, because we I believe Islamic civilizations existed.
And they varied. From time to time from place to place, depending on where they were, geographically. Are you getting bored? bored or saltwater? Banjara?
Can you all understand what I'm talking about? Okay, good. So I'm explaining how ideas arise? Why do people start thinking in a particular way? Why does Islamic art looks the way it looks?
Why does the Arabic calligraphy looks the way it looks? Why do we recite the Quran in a particular way? Why does it have a particular effect on us? All these things are related to our civilization and the causes of our civilization. So
we are conditioned by our environments.
Ideas do affect us. So when Muslims are politically, economically academically dominant, the Europeans were copying the Muslims, it's natural.
Muslims on militarily, economically, politically, and academically, were the leaders of the world for nearly 1000 years. For over 1000 years.
You are simply unaware of it.
I'll be very crude and brutal with you people who are listening to me right now. You are completely unaware of it. If you will tell me today that you know what Islamic civilization is I'll tell you know,
you don't know. Because I know you don't know
who has read divani half is
the one half is
I'm not saying you say something is a prerequisite of being a Muslim. I'm not saying that. I'm just trying to show you
who has read all the books of Imam ghazali
or some of the books of shekel Islamic multimedia
or some of the works of a journalist Kalani
or some of the philosophy of shower EULA bus
how long it will be suddenly this this is the point you cannot know a civilization without knowing it. And how do you know it? You know it by studying it
by thinking about it
or I'll get bored about a scholar
just in there even they don't know.
They don't know.
This is why you haven't produced one shower you law in the last two centuries.
Its lead author of Psalm a shovel you lucky up name is Alba key. He was a product of a particular way of thinking a culture a society.
A sense of being
showered with love is not just normal, some some dude from the street from Tom, Dick and Harry. The reason why we have completely lost touch
With the Islamic civilization is because we have been dominated by another civilization politically, economically, militarily and academically.

There is a presumption before even the discussion begins, that what the western thinkers
think is the default position.
To judge another culture, another civilization, you have to use a criteria.
When you say something is good,
you have to know
the bad to measure the good against it.

colonial influences on the Muslim mind.
And he hits the nail on the head. Tara would you'd sauropod the jolly Frank who is going to translate that is a remark on caraga

Nana Machado, Giovanni. What makes them think that they have to have a poster of Tom Cruise on the world. Back in the day used to be Michael Jackson and Madonna and and George Michael to Mary Jo Jo Monica didn't write in the 90s when I was a teenager, you know, kids used to have these posters. I'll be naini blind Nicolay
I mean, Aaron amagi abinadab posters. chapron. Right. Yes. Why? Why are the kids coming back from school and
literally worshipping these people?
Because they are being conditioned.
Day and night. They are being conditioned to think that these people are admirable.

God doesn't exist. Mary negami Sabbath? No, he would you Tara, I think you don't exist. If you think God doesn't exist, you don't exist because you cannot
exist without God's existence, it is impossible.
So, this is the thinking of it, Bob, before I start to do the shriek bol keshari. We'll come back to our topic. So even he picked on this parameter Lala, that cultures dominate and influence. So now currently, the fashion is in this day and age that everything the western civilization deems normal has to be normal. Anything that doesn't fit into the western discourse,
because colonial discourse, colonial discourse has become Western discourse today.
Colonial colonialism was based upon a particular way of thinking.
It had philosophy backing it, colonialism was backed by science and philosophy. Did you know that
colonial administrators working in India,
those who are working here as the British administrators running the colonial system, were influenced by philosophers like
john Stuart Mill,
And the writings of Adam Smith, the Wealth of Nations.
And David Hume, extreme skepticism, project rich rejection of miracles are all things supernatural. So a lot of the colonial administrators were influenced by a number of different philosophies, Western thinkers. That's why they managed to justify a lot of the things they did in colonial lands.
And then science came in Darwin's theory, I talked about it even last time, Darwin came up with is there in 1859, that theory was used to suppress non white races. So a lot of these administrators had become racist.
They started to think that the white race is the most evolved race scientifically,
it is the most
evolved, and advanced race, even genetically.
And non white races are still in the process of evolving. They haven't yet fully bought. That's why some of the slave owners in the 19th century, they started to use Darwin's theory of evolution, to suppress the blacks in America, they started to say blacks are fully not they're not fully evolved yet.
They are still in the process of evolving.
And there are books to justify this.
So it depends on what time you live in.
And where you live.
Thinking will be influenced by the dominant forces. So know that today. The reason why we even have to discuss the topic of atheism
in the Muslim world is because
Terra, Jude has uropathogenic de frango.
Is because you don't know what Islamic civilization is. You have no idea what our thinkers or philosophers have written in the past because it's more mainly in Persian and in the Arabic language, or do we both come here? So you have been heavily influenced by colonial thinking which became Western thinking later on.
Okay. And now the assumption is that we have to judge every other system, including Islam, against the perfect model of Western civilization
as it is claimed. So the presumption is that what colonialism or what Western thought has to say on certain matters is the standard to judge other civilized civilizations by Do you understand what I'm talking about? Sagittarius.
that's the standard you have to judge everything by

Yo yo edge of Ashoka Metallica dorabase COVID to the human to discuss kita Hello Ayesha Kuma, no salty.
Ayesha was nine years old, and Rasulullah saw Salaam God Meritor or Archie doorman Nick bought Ba ba ba ba and yet this is a classic example of how
a particular way of thinking is dominant affects you
because this way
A secular liberal system is dominant even on the Muslim lands, even even the Muslim world. Yeah, these questions are coming again and again coming up. Why? Because now the culture has become Bollywood and Hollywood. Bollywood and Hollywood is the norm. Yes, hollywood first and then Bollywood.
It has become the norm.
While abiqua Bollywood key heroine teen saw terasaki imagine cancer.
Can you imagine
a Bollywood movie heroine? 13 years old.
Can you imagine Shahrukh Khan running in the field with a 13 year old girl?
Yeah. Can you imagine article zero in Hollywood k?
primary stars. Daniel Craig, for example. Daniel Craig, do you know Daniel Craig? James Bond,
huh? Daniel Craig James Bond. Can you imagine?
Our 12 or 13 years old heroin in
a James Bond movie. And James Bond is having an affair with her. And he's having it out further. Can you imagine? Why? Goodbye?
Because you have never seen that. And your societies? Yes.
But Shakespeare his Juliet was 30
Shakespeare good Julia to tell us all kitty.
So if Shakespeare was to write the play today, he would be called a pedophile.
Do you understand?
Agha Shakespeare was to pen is Romeo and Juliet today.
Juliet had to be 18 years old.
She cannot be 13 Times have changed. People have been influenced thinking has changed. Look it up to the 19th century. As much I can I have some tea please.
this Rama retopo choco vanilla, get the cannoli. artega done the connector.
g on I want to finish this session. And then after the break, we'll have a q&a ticket.
So Shakespeare's Juliet was 13. And no eyebrows were no eyebrows, no eyebrows were raised.
No one even flinched. It's not an issue. Even if he was nine years old, it would be it wouldn't it wouldn't have been an issue.
Because up to the 19th century, are you listening to me?
Up to the 19th century, up to the year 1900. Son only so how far is that
118 years, up to the 19th century. This was not an issue. Actually, according to the English law.
In England, you could marry a girl as young as seven years old legally.
It was the norm. It was not an issue. And this is clearly stated in the commentaries of William Blackstone, on the English law.
William Blackstone's commentaries on the English law, published 1867. Although he wrote in the 18th century, William Blackstone's commentaries on the English law were published.
In the second half of the 18th century 1760s onwards, he published many editions. But then his commentaries are Republic's with a recent additions of recent developments in the law. But this particular law wasn't changed up to the 1867 because I have a copy in my possession of this particular book, I'm quoting from 1867, page 110 published in London,
William Blackstone's commentaries on English law, it states a girl may be married at the age of seven.
Before you go to the method, messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam
for all of these mon Kareena Heidi's today who reject the age of Ayesha the Hadith in Bukhari, for example, there are soulless Islam. She was a bit Ayesha was betrothed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at six. And the marriage was consummated at at nine when she was nine. You know this has become a problem for men Kareena Hadees
because they have been strongly heavily influenced by Western liberal, secular thought.
of today, not of the 19th century, liberalism and secularism existed even in the 19th century, when it was not a bad thing at all.
The moral standard was changed in the 20th century in the early 20th century, the moral standard we are living by today, the western moral standard, by which all the humans are expected to live by, live through or live by.
It came about in the early 20th century, because in the 19th century, go and check the list of all the nations and the age of marriage, the legal ages of marriage, most American states, most American states in the 19th century,
especially in the south, the age was nine, you could marry a girl and nine years old.
And some had 10. Some had 12, the age of consent, do you believe me or you don't believe me? If you don't believe me, I'll connect to the internet right now. And I'll start reading all the scholarly quotes and all the table, I'll put them in front of you.
And possibly, I'll request from the brothers when they edit this video, while I'm talking, they can put up these links. And some of the things I'm talking about this can be seen on the screen.
So what changed?
Hello, George, you know, intellectuals in Korea de la, Mancha arena Hadees. They want to reject.
You know, these reports about Ayesha being nine, because they feel ashamed.
They feel as if they have to live by
the forever changing system of the west or Western thinking system of Western thought, because it's forever changing, changing rules. By the day, it's still evolving. Western thought is continuously evolving.
Because as human humans change, humans learn new things. And they keep changing, sometimes for the worst, not for the best, as we have seen in the 20th century, that this human thinking or the western mindset or Western thought.
It can go into any direction it can create fascism in Italy, it can possibly create Nazism, the Nazis in Germany, it can create Marxism.
Or, you know what happened the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.
Karl Marx was what?
He was born in Germany, he died in England. He's buried in the high
I think Highgate or hybrid Cemetery in London, Karl Marx.
This is what happened in the 20th century. Last same things are happening even today. So we address the question of atheism today, because that is the religion of the powerful.
Do you understand? Islam became the
the topic of the day, or Islam became the most important topic in the world. Because it was, politically, economically, militarily academically dominant in the world for over 1000 years. Muslims are very dominant for over 1000 years, Muslims are writing commentaries on the Greek philosophers, most of the writing on the top of tomatometer pop books on any topic in the world. For over 1000 years, when this was changed, and the tide was turned, and Western scholars started to work more on science and philosophy, their work became dominant, and Muslims went into a political decline. With that political decline came economic decline, with economic decline, decline became
sorry, came the decline of the academic activity. And with that came moral decline, moral decline came with that, okay. And this is what we're going through right now, in the Muslim world.
Even though we have so much power, so much resources, we are going through a political decline with that we are going through you know, economic decline or economic economic
problems, and that creates a number of other problems.
So, it is very clear that the reason we are talking about atheism today, or in current Hadees today, I'm not saying in Cairo. This is atheism. By the way, don't get me wrong, because there are people out there that take things out of context. They will ignore the entire lecture, and they will pick on one thing or one sentence I've said Oh,
This guy doesn't know what he's talking about.
So please, when you quote me quote me in context, okay? So it has become a problem today you know some of the some of the Islamic
concepts become problem become a problem for people. Firstly, those who have no idea what Islamic civilization is and what it stands for. Secondly, because they have thoroughly read the Western tradition and Western civilization read on it, they think it is the dominant system and everything has to to live by it. If you want to be normal, basically, just become a Gora
yet, Article jomar a politician's TV will be examples with a cat examples ha ha. What examples of the gift of perfection who bought caring in America Misrata Hmm. Right. But Tanya may struggle they have a look
by what happened to you, you're supposed to be the role model.
You You are supposed to be the role model you have Islam. Islam should make you a better person. It should make your civilization a better civilization, it should become an example or the rest of the world Islam should become the Muslim civilization of the Muslims should become the mirror the world should look into to fix itself not the other way around.
Muslims shouldn't be looking into another mirror to fix their image rather than Muslims should become the image
that the other civilizations look into and fix themselves like it happened in the past it happened in the past.
So in Korea, these issues are virtually discussed for
because it has
been influenced to the thought has been influenced by the dominant forces
so atheism is the religion of the powerful
Okay, so those people who are in power in media what what is being powerful mean today? Who's going to help me? What is being powerful mean today?
Okay, you make the people think the way you want them to think okay, that's one of the ways to become powerful, but but what Okay, what what are three things you will tell me are the original power today or or sorry, not?
How can I put it important ingredients for power?
Money, money, so we can call it economy?
economy or economic strength? Number one, number two, media.
Media, right? number three?
Authority is the generalist vague. So we have to economic economic strength. Number two is media. Because you are now making the masses think
you are telling them what is normal?
Because you're talking to them, you are forming their thinking you're conditioning them.
You can put that under media,
Three things in my opinion. And they can be more Of course, there are many more things, right. economic equality, economic power, economic strength, media.
Whether it's print media, electronic media, or social media, whatever it is, amazingly own none of it. You the Muslims own none of it.
You will not have it.
And those who own it are a bunch of atheists, mostly, mostly.
Who is he?
But who is he? The owner of what? Facebook?
The owner of Facebook, right? Mark Zuckerberg, even though he comes from a Jewish background, he comes from a Jewish background. Right? But he's an atheist.
I'm not saying that he is an he has an agenda to promote atheism through Facebook. It may be so maybe in subtle ways. It might be happening but I'm not claiming that. I don't have any evidence right for for it. But I'm only giving a few examples.
What else? Bill Gates,
Bill Gates, do you
He's an atheist. I don't think he's a Christian.
I don't think he's a Christian.
So we can give many examples. We can give many examples. But how do you know media is actually a Western media in particular is actually promoting atheism more than any any other way of thinking? How do we know that? How do we know that?
We know that by looking at the people who are speaking on the media,
or the language that that is spoken on the media. Religion is being attacked not only Islam, Islam is basically under attack more than all other religions on the planet, right, but religion is generally attacked and undermined or degraded. And
some people, the people who are put to represent religion are generally very lame, unable to do it unqualified.
And on the other side, when you see a theistic thing because you have people like Richard Dawkins, you have people like Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, right people he's dead now Christopher Hitchens.
So, on the other hand, when you see people most experts on Islam, who are speaking on Islam in the Western media, are generally not even Muslims.
Iron Hirsi Ali, to Somali woman who has become an expert on Islam for some reason. Right.
Tarik Fatah? Do you know him? Uncle Patrick, do you know him?
Yeah, right, one of the biggest enemies of Islam. And I don't mean to say that biggest enemies of Islam means go and kill him. Now, I'm not saying that. No, no, no, I'm only stating a fact. He has made it very clear that he doesn't like Islam. He hates Islam Actually, this is very clear,
but he pretends to be a Muslim to get acceptance from Western media and Indian media as well he has been very prominent there. And now even Indian media has abandoned him because he has no credibility, even in Hindus, even Hindus can see through the facade, right? And there are examples like that. So the reason why we're discussing these topics is because the media is promoting these ideas. atheism is systematically Richard Dawkins book The God Delusion has become one of the best selling items in the recent history.
Why? Why there are better books out there.
So marostica Dr. Gamma,
who knows it
Satanic Verses, and is full of book was full of because it's not even a literary masterpiece, if not better than Jane Austen's writing. It's not better than some other people writing today their writings, but why is that being pumped out. So there is a reason that the reason why we we have been affected by these super hot and these ideas is because they are being deliberately promoted and put out there for people to think like that. So for this reason, the greatest battle for Muslims today is to primarily have economic strength, and use that economic strength to create your own media. You need your own social media, you need your own news channels, you need your own
print media, you need your own books. You need your own thinkers, your intellectuals, you need to study Islamic civilization, we need more people most Muslim youngsters to study the tradition of Islam. Islam is not only reading a theory of the Quran, and many partly Islam are no No, no, no, no, it goes a lot further
and goes a lot further you need to go further you start you need to learn Persian, you need to learn Arabic, Arabic more important than Persian By the way, Arabic first and then Persian, okay and it will be Persian will be a walk in the park for you because you know all do, right? Once you know these languages and start to read Islamic literature in these original languages, your dress code, your demeanor, your thinking, you're talking your feeling will change. I can guarantee you that much. It will change completely. You will not even think of atheism or something like in Cairo, Hades. Never, because you have a very strong attachment to your own civilization. In God Hades is
something which came from another
corner of the world.
So people get influenced by the environment, by the conditioning, by the schooling by the movies you watch by the literature you read by the people you listen to. You are being conditioned on day
So all these new ideas, these questions people pose about the Heidi's literature, one of the biggest reasons is that it doesn't make sense. Ha, have you come across this before? It doesn't make sense. He cavada GT Botha was so lucky Tony Bartman, Sucre. By doesn't make sense, according to what, according to what standard? Have you ever asked that question? It doesn't make sense according to what standard?
What tool Are you using to measure Islamic civilization or Islamic culture or Islamic way of life?
Because if you're using something else to judge Islam, then you're assuming that that system is better than Islam, you're already at fault.
You're already at fault. So when the discussion starts, you have already presumed that
when you are posing questions about Islam or asking questions about Islam, you have already assumed that your thinking which has been influenced by another system, is actually the criteria to judge by Am I making sense? That's why you have to love Islam, teach Islam, read Islam on its own basis, on its own merits not using something else to judge Islam.
This is what happened. So a lot of these questions for example, we talked about causes and reasons that people become monks Kareena this. And by the way, by the way, this is the first step of shape on
taking you towards ultimately Cofer
shape on will ultimately, start
with casting doubt in your mind, because of lack of, because of lack of knowledge, because you don't have knowledge. You haven't studied history, cultures, languages, so shaytan knows your weaknesses, your vulnerability, and he will put these ideas in your mind and then the next step will be after incurable diseases in Cairo Quran
after incurable diseases in Cairo Quran
first you have rejected Hadees the Sunnah of the process along by due to your conditioning, your mental conditioning, or maybe if you are not mentally conditioned, maybe because of money.
Because you want to be famous or you want, you know, you want to be controversial, you know, because Gaga, Mark Cuban era maturana to Islam, Cooper de facto
make Islam your target and you will become a thinker, a philosopher and intellectual, you know, even if you have never seen the face of a university, you start talking raise Islam. You know, like in the West, we have this idiot called Tommy Robinson. Yeah, I don't know, if you are watching some of the things that are happening in Britain. This guy cannot put two sentences of the English language without making an error. He is he claimed to be an English man. Right? And he has suddenly become a media sensation, of course, for the wrong reasons. But if you want to be famous, start attacking Islam, or make money.
Suddenly, this guy's become rich.
This guy, he was put in prison for mortgage fraud.
And now he's, he's rich. He's got money for some reason, flying around. He's doing videos and
against Muslims and Islam, around Europe, all over Europe. Right. So the point is that if you have been influenced and you ask these questions,
then we have to question the criteria, the standard you're using to judge Islam.
You have to understand that you have been influenced you are conditioned. You are asking questions about something you don't understand you haven't studied. So most of these people when they ask these questions, or when they raise these questions about Hades is not because they have thoroughly studied the heavy science.
It's not because they have studied the science of Elmore Riyal or the science of the modern analysis of Hudis or the science of subtle subtleties of hedis they haven't studied these sciences they have no idea what this is, right?
There is something else happening in the back of their mind that's that's driving the attacks on this literature. So from this rejection comes around rejection eventually. That means Islam rejection, you will reject Islam and then you will become a deist who cannot possibly intellectually reject the existence of God, someone who are someone out there who made the universe, but then what will happen is, more points will come more doubts will come in your mind and eventually you will become a god rejected altogether. So step by step shaytan takes you step by step.
step through these stages. I met a gentleman the other day,
who is from Pakistan, I'm not going to mention his name, he might know who he is.
I had a meeting with him here in Islam about a few days ago.
And he doesn't believe in Islam.
He said he became an atheist.
First he became a hadith rejecter. I asked him a few basic questions about howdy sciences. And he obviously had no idea not to belittle him, he was a very intelligent man, no doubt, he was a very intelligent, highly read,
highly educated man. And I was very impressed by his his
intelligence, no doubt, but he had little knowledge on things he had judged.
How can you judge something without no knowledge? without studying it thoroughly? Right? You have no right to judge or have opinions on a science for example.
How many of you are astrophysicists or astrophysicists how many could no longer competent? How many?
So do you want me to take you seriously when you talk about
Terry's on the heavens, for example.
If you say something about the solar system, or if you have a theory on the the origin of the universe of the Big Bang, there are so many different models of the Big Bang Theory, right? Yes. If you start to reject one of them and say oh, because modeler can model a model, right? And the first question I'll ask you
how much have you actually studied into astrophysics? Why don't y'all get away
it Oh, char articles.
I'll tell you to go home. Car job I tried to cook because and make chart for yourself or something like that. Yeah, but don't have any opinions on astrophysics.
The Hudis, science is no less than that. The science of Hades is a very deep science. Not every Tom, Dick and Harry can deal with it. You need decades of study to understand the intricate details of the science how the hobbies literature has been preserved.
So this gentleman I met, he had very interesting ideas. And he said first he started with rejecting Hades, and then he became a deist. A deist, is someone who doesn't believe in religion. And then he became an atheist. And amazingly from atheist, he became a platonic, Christian, Pakistani brother who do speaking, he's a platonic Christian. And then I had a very long discussion with him. How can you be a follower of Plato, strictly speaking, if you are a pure follower of Plato, you cannot possibly follow Jesus Christ, you have to distort the image of Jesus in order for you to fit him into the platonic model. You cannot use pure Jesus who was a prophet of God with revelation
you cannot fit him into platonic model Plato who was not a prophet
right. So, we had a very long discussion. From that discussion, I realized this is our shaitan works. First thing is rejecting the Sunnah Hadees right. And this is what this rejection leads to, very often it leads to eventually kufr disbelief in Islam, this is why it needs to be handled before it begins.
So inshallah, by the grace of Allah, we will continue with these sessions or these lectures and highlighting some of the shoba heart of the Hadees rejecters. In the next next session, we will cover the following points inshallah. And those points are the doubts raised by these rejecters. Some of them for example, they state that Hades is the new knowledge. It is not your teeny. It is Donna Vaughn. You know what Dan is with law. COMM Odom is Whakatane right. So we got Dan All right.

jB jela Thank you, baby.
Baby baby a
baby hired a big job yet Yaba said or we may be a
already Mr. Bear,
honey, though the point is okay, what were we talking about before we came to alphabet
done a good job outweighs cafe Hades knowledge is the name is not your teeny and they take the meaning of done as doubt amazingly
and they use some Quranic verses to make the point
Grand kikuchiyo 10 in the run if mon for example hmm well I do echo your doubt have gone to the US versus like that. Or a lot of these diesel injectors when you start talking to them even about the Quran because they are Quran only Muslims even the Quran did or no because if they read the Quran carefully, they will realize that their argument chronically speaking is lame is absolutely you know, hilarious.
And we will discuss the details in due course inshallah, in the coming lectures, and other doubt they raise is that these literature is mostly minor we had these has been paraphrased. For example, these are paraphrased words of Rasulullah sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam. Right. And Rasulullah saw Islam he has not been quoted word by word rather, these are all paraphrased reports. Okay, that's another doubt they raise and we will address it
briefly to address it very quickly. kuranda stories and there are stories in the Quran story of no Allah Salam story of use of Islam and Muslim Islam all the dialogues are the paraphrased or are they in the same language?
those prophets spoke
they are paraphrase by Allah subhanaw taala No, masala Islam didn't speak Arabic. Use of didn't speak Arabic, Ibrahim al Islam didn't speak Arabic. So the Quran paraphrased the words of previous prophets. And we know that Allah subhanaw taala speaks the truth of life telling us the story as it happened in the Arabic language. Okay, so there are many more superhard there is, for example, this was an army, for example, a non Arabian Persian conspiracy to craft the message of Islam. That's why so many reports were forged in the name of Rasulullah saw Salaam and they were attributed to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and that gives given example that most of the scene were
actually are dummies or Persians, to be specific to be precise, right? So they mentioned the name of Imam Bukhari, Imam teramachi Mr. Muslim and you know, Mr. Ma boo Tao does such a stunning and under the data, but what they do is deliberately obviously, because they don't know most of the don't know.
They ignore all the Arabs, all the Arab behind the scene, and there's a huge list of them, which we will discuss inshallah, in the next session in due course, and there are many more Shabbat they, for example, these are written nearly over two centuries after the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. So lucky dosa do bottom now these lucky karsiyaka information where did sorry,
exactly one of the most common questions mon karenia had is asked or those who reject the Hadees is that
how these literature was written
200 years after the prophet SAW the license.
So, therefore, it cannot be fully trusted. Okay, hold on a second. And then they use the model of the Gospels that you guys are inconsistent. you reject the Gospels of Esau a Salaam that were written by some people after a solace alarm, and they were written closer to the time of ACLs London This was then how can you reject that and accept these? Firstly, we don't reject the gospel literature in totality. No, we don't. We believe there are there is there are elements of truth there in there are
verses that have been paraphrased.
From the words of a Salah Salaam, right? We believe that we don't believe the gospels are entirely false. Four Gospels I'm talking about or the Messenger of Allah Islam is completely lost. No, that would be rejecting the Quran. Because the Quran states that there is truth there in the as you do the homework to be done with Torah while in jail, they find Mohammed Salah, Salah mentioned with them in the Torah and indeed in the home which is in the hands with them. So there is there are verses there about Rasul Allah, Allah
okay, but we respond to these these projectors that there is no comparison between these literature and the Gospels. Because we have categories in Hadith literature, we have Sahih
Okay, then we have halfen
then we have even Hassan is of different types depending on the level of certainty, right and then we have
then we have mo do are completely forged lies, how do we know by looking at the chain the people who are generating So, our literature depends on people who are narrating publicly they were real figures they existed and they were known publicly and there is evidence for that, which we will discuss in sha Allah tala. In due course, and Imam Bukhari when he narrates something from the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He doesn't just make it up. He doesn't take all our little lights on. Solomon doesn't give us the reasons or doesn't give us the chain or the sources. He tells us. Hadassah
narrated to us or we were told.
We were told Hadassah had destiny. I was told by my teacher mokuba McKibben ob Rahim
and he was an he narrated from his teacher. jazzy Duplo be obeyed. And he an Salma thumbnail Aqua. He narrated from his teacher, Selma sobre, la caja, who narrated from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam so there's a chain Bukhari gives the people that this I got my information from Makino, Brahim, he got his information from Egypt, no doubt. And he got his information from Selma Tahlequah, and he got his information for the Pulitzer Center. So there is an uninterrupted chain, there's no comparison. There's no comparison with the Gospels there is in Kappa, in Kappa, in the in the in Hades terminal terminology cut off. There is a gap between a Salah Salam and the people who
are writing the Gospels of at least
at least by the most conservative estimates 30 to 60 years.
There's no comparison. So inshallah we will discuss all these details. And this is why when I said earlier
in the evening, that when we start to go through each and every single one of these issues, it will take us It will take us
a long time to go through them. So I will try my best to fit them into one session. It might take two hours. If not, then there might be two or three more sessions on the same topic. Okay. Until then, thank you so much for listening. Well hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
